NEW YORK HEKALD. New Yurk, WcdiKi'l"' < Hurcli 3, l*-?3. Highly Important from Washington. The Inauguration of James K. Polk, THE NEW PRESIDENT. FORMATION OF TUB NEW CABINET. THE MUOVRAL ADDRESS. Yesterday, at noon, James K Polk, the newly elected President of the Uniied States, was inau gurated and took the oath of otiice tuthe presence of congregated thousands. All the party leader*? all the officers of State?all the representatives o( the people?multitudes of the fairest womer. in the land?aud crowds npon crowds of the citizens of the United States, were there, and the whole scene presented one of the most imposing displays of re publican pomp, splendor, enthusiasm and triumph, ever witnessed in the Capital. The day opened with the uoise of cannon?;he ringing of bells?the display of the American fljg from the Capitol, the Navy Yard, the public edi fices, hotels, and many of the private dwellings of the citizens of Washington. About eight o'clock, early as was the hour, the eutire avenue from tht President's House to the Capitol, wua thronged with men, women, aud children, from all sections of the country. It was rumored in the morning, that Genera! Jackson had nirived, aud such a bursting forth of shouts from point to point, as this report caught and spread among the multitude, the ears ol mor tal man have seldom heard. It is scarcely neces sary, however, to say, that " Old Hickory" was present only in spirit. The " Inaugural Address" was sent on by a go vernment express, and reached us at eleven o'clock last night. To it we refer our readers without comment. It will be read with, perhaps, a greater degree of mterest thau that excited by any similar document since the time of Washington. We shall, this day, receive the fullest and earliest de tails of the tn.iuguratiou, and will issue the intelli gence immediately in an extra. Our correspondence from the Capital is of the greatest possible interest and importuuce. The in telligence relative to the formatiou of the new cabinet, will produce great excitement in this re gion. Washington is in a state of unprecedented ferment. But we refer our readers to the letter from our correspondents at the Capital, for the de tails oi the extraordinary state of parties and ol popular feeling there. Discontent?doubt?aston ishment?indignation?hope?fear?rejoicing?all the varied and strong passions of the political arens appear to be let loose in Washington, and no on< knows what the next hour may bring forth. We have at this moment the best possible rneant of obtaining from Washington the fullest, earliest, and most aathentic intelligence. Place co reli ance upou the rumors, stories, and falsehoods ol the party journals, but look out for ths Herald cor respondence from the Capitol. The Inaugural Address. Fellow Citizens :? Without solicitation on my part, 1 have been chosen by the free and voluntary suffrages of my countryman ti tha most honorable and most responsible office on earth 1 am deeply impressed with gratitude for the confidence reposed in me. Honored with this distinguished consi deration at au earlier period of lile than any of my prede cessors, I cannot disguise the diffidence with which I an. about to euter on the discharge oi my official duties. If the more uged and experienced men who have filled the offioeof President of the United States, even in tin infancy of the republic, distrusted their ability to di? charge the d?ti? ?i that malted station, what ought u*< to betne apprehensions ol one so much younger and let. endowed, now that our domain wxtands from ocean t<> ocean, that our people have so greatly increased in num bers, and at a time when so great diversity ol opinion prevails in regard to the nrincipies und policy which should characterize the administration ol our govt ri. mentl Well may the boldeat fear, and the wisest trem ble, when incuriing responsibilities on which may de pend our country'* peace and prosperity, and in some de gree , the hopes and happiness ot the whole human Ic mUy. In aesumiug responsibilities so vast, I fervently in voke the aid ot that Almighty Ru'er of the Universe, in whose hands are the destinies of nations and of men, to guard this heaven-fsvored land against the miichiela which, without His guidance, might arise from an unwise public policy. With a firm reliance upon the wisdom 01 Omnipotence ti sustain and direct me in the path of dut) which I am appointed to pursue, I stand id the present of this assembled multitude of my countrymen, to take upon myaelt the solemn obligation, " to the best ot m> ability, to preserve, protect, and defend the constitution of the United States " A concise enumeration of the principles which will guide me in the administrative policy ol the government, is not only in accordance with the examples set me by all my predecessors, but is eminontly befitting the occasion. The constitution itself, plainly written as it ia, the sat. guard of our federative compact, the offspring of conces sion and compromise, bindiDg together in the bonds c.l peace and union this great and increaiing family o( Irel and independent States, will be the chart hy which I shall be dire; ted. It will be my first care to administer the gorernmeot in the true spirit oi that instrument, and to assume m powers not expressly granted or clearly implied in it terms The government of the United S ates is one ot delegated and limited powers ; an 1 it is bv a strict adhei ence to the clearly granted powers, and by abstaining trom the exercise of doubtful or unauthorized impliro l-owcrs, that we have the on'y sure gumPaiity against tie recurrence ol those uulortunate collisions between th< Federal an ' State authorities, which have occasionally aa much disturbed the harmony ot our system, and ev-i, threaten'd thep rpetuity ol our glorious Uniou "To the States respectively, or to the ]>eople,"havr been reserved " the powers not debated to tbe Unite.l States by the constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States." Kach State is a complete sovereignty within th< sphere of its reserved powers. The government of the UuiOD, acting within the sphere of its delegated autho rity, is also a complete sovereignty. While the general government should abstain from <he exercise of authority nut clearly delegated to it, the States should be equally careful that, in the maintenance of their righli, they do not overstep the limits of powe rs reserved to tbem. One of the most distinguished of my predecessors attached de served impoitance to " the support of the State govern intuits in all their rights, as the moat cumpet nt adminis tration fur our domestic concerns, and the surest bulwark against anti-republican tendencies and to the " preser vation ol the general government in its whole constitu lioual vigor, as the sheet anchor of our peace at home, and safety abroad " To the government of the United States has been in trusted the exclusive management of our foreign affaits. Beyond thst, it wields a law general enumerated power*. It does not force rsform on the States. It leaves individu als, over whom it easts its protecting Influence, entirely Iree to improve their own condition by the legitimate ex ercisoof all their mental and physical powers. It is a common protector of each and all tbe States; of every man who lives upon our soil, whether of native orloreign birth; of every teligious sect, in their worship of the Almighty according to the dictates of their own cunsei enoe; of every sha le ot opinion, and the most free inqui ry; of every art, trade, and occupation, consistent with the laws ol the States And we rejoice in tbe general hap pineis, prosperity,and advancement of eur country,which nave been tbe offspring of freedom, and not of power. This most admirable and wisest system ol well-regu lated sell-go-ernment among men, ever deviled by hu man minds, has been tested h.v its successful operation for more than hall a century, and, if preserved from the usur pations of the federal government on the one hand and the exercise by the States ol powers not reserved to them on the other, will, 1 fervently hope and believe, endure for ages to come, and dispense the blessings of civil anu religious liberty to distant generations. To effect objects so dear to every patriot, I shall devote myself with anxious solicitude. It will he my desire to guard against that mist fruitful source of danger to the harmonious ac tion ol our system, which consists in substituting the mere discretion and caprice of the executive, or of majoi ities in the legislative department of the government, Cor powers which have been withheld Irom the federal go vernment by the constitution. By the theory ef our go vernment, majorities rule, but this right is not an arbi trary or unlimited one. It is a right to be exercised in subordination to the constitution, and in conlormity to it. One great abject of the constitution was to restrain majorities from oppressing minorities, or encroaching upon iheirj-ist rights Minorities have ? right io appeal to tbe constitution, as a shield against such oppression That the blessings of liberty which our constitution secures may IA enjoyed alike by minorities and majori ties, the executive has bean wisely invested with a quali fied veto upon the acts oi the Legislature. Itissnega tive power, and in conservative in its character It ar rests fit the time hasty, inconsiderate, or unconstttution ul legi'la-ion; invites reconsideration, and transfers ques nons at issue between the legislstive and executive -It ,> ir uiuuts t > the tr.hin.l ot ihe people. Like all other powers, it is subject to be abused When Judiciously and propsrly exercised, the constitution itself may he saved from infraction, and tbe rights of ell preserved and pro. ti I I he inestimable value of our federal Union is fait and acknowledged hy all By this system of united andcon i-derate 1 States, our people are permntid, collective!) nn I individually, to seek their own happiness in their own way; ami 'he consequences have been most auspicious ?

JSLzfsrxszn The power " to lay end collect taxes, dutiea, Impost v and excise!," wa* an indispensable one to be conferred on the federal government which, without it, would possess no means of providing for its own support. In executing this power by levying a tariff of dnties for the support ol government, the raising of revenue should be the object, and pro'.ectinu the incident. To reverse this principle, and make protection the object, and revenue the incident. would be to inflict manifest injustice upon all other than the protected interests. In levying duties for is doubtless proper to make such discriminations within the revenue principle, as will afford incidental protection to our home interests. Within the revenue limit, there i* a discretion to discriminate : beyond that limit, the rightful exercise of the power is not conceded. The in cidental protection afforded to our heme interests by dis criminations within the revenue range, it is believed will be ample. In making discriminations, nil our home inter ests should, as far as practicable, he equally protected ? The largest portion of our people fare agriculturists, Others are employed in manufactures, commerce, navigation, and the mechanics erts, engaged in their respective pursuits, and their joint labors constitute the national or heme industry. To tax one branch of this home indn?try for the benefit ofanother would be unjust. No one of th<'?e interests can rightful ly claim an advantage over the othrrs, or to be enriched by impoverishing the others. All are equally entitled to the fostering caie and protection of the government. In exercising a sound discretion in levying discriminating duties within 'he limit prescribed, care should betaken that it be done in a manner not to benefit the wealthy few, at the expense of the toiling millions, by taxing low est the luxuries of life, or articles of superior quality and high price, which can only be consumed by the wealthy, and highest the necessaries ot life, or articles of coarse quality and low price, which the poor and great mass of our people mnst consume. The burdens of government sbonld, as far as practicable, be distributed justly and equally among al classes of our population. These gen eral views, long entertained on this subject. I have deemed it proper to reiterate- It ^s a subject upon which conflicting interests of sections and occupations are supposed to exist, and a spirit of mutnal concession and compromise in adjusting its details should be cherished *y every part of our wide-spread country, as the only means of preserving harmony and a cheerful ac quiescence of all in the operation or our revenue laws. Our patriotic citizens in every part of the Union will readily submit to the payment of such taxes as shall be needed for the support of their government, whether in peace or in war, if they are sa levied as to distribute the burdens as equally as possible among them The republic of Texas has made known her desire to come into our Union, to form a part of our confederacy, and enjav with us the blessings of liberty secured and guarantied by our constitution. Texas was once a part of our country?was unwisely ceded away to a foreign power?is now independent, and possesses sn undoubted light to dispose of a part or the whole of her territory, and to merge her sovereignty, as a separate and indepen dent Hta'e, in aurs I congratulate my country that, by anactct the late Congress of the United pistes, the as sent of this Oaveroment has been givan to the re-union; and it only remains for the two countries toagrreupon the teims, to consummate an object so Important to both. I regard the question of annexation as belonging exclu sively^ the United States and Texas. They are Inde pendent powers, competent to contract; and foreign na tions have no right to interfere withthim, or to take ex ceptions to their re union Foreign powers do not seem to appreciate the true character of oui government Out Union is a confederation of independent States, whose policy is peace with each other and all the world To en 1 l .rge iti limits, is to extend the dominion of peace over a l<f tional territories and increasing millions. The world has nothing to f- ?r from military ambition in our govern moiit While the cbiif m; ?l-trate and the populai branch nt I'lmgieas are eiic'e.i for short terms by the suf frages of those millions who must, in their own persons, bear all the burdens and miseries ot war, our government csnnot lie otherwise than poriflc Foreign powers ? ' onld, therefore, look on the annexation of T" xas to the 1 'nitcd States, not as the conquest of a nation seeking to extend her dominions by arms and violence, but as the peaceful acquisition of a territory once her own. by add ing another member to our confederation, with the con eent oi that member?thereby diminishing 1 ho chanci a of war, and opening tothtm ne-v and trer-iucrotuiing mar ket* for their product*. To Trxaa the reunion it important, because the strong protecting a m ofottr government would be extended ove; her, and <he vaat resources of het fertile soil and genial climate would be ipeediiy developed; while the safety oi New Orleans and of our whole southwestern frontier, against hostile aggression, as well eg the interests of thi who!' Union, would be promoted by it lu the earlier'tages ol our national existence, the opi nion prevailed with some, that our system of confedera ted States could not opei ate successfully over an extended territory , end s rious objection* have, ut d If- rent tiait*, been made to the enlargement of our boundaries. Then objections were earnestly urged when we acquired Lou isi ota Experience has shown thst they weio not well lounr'rd The title of numerous Indian tribes to vast tract- of country has been extinguished. New State* have been adunitte I into the Union; new territories havi been created, and our jurisdiction and laws extended over thtm. As our population has expanded, the Union ha been cemented ami strengthened; a* our boundaries havi been enlarged, and our agricultural population has beer spread over a large cur:ace, our federative system has ac quired additional strength rind security. It may well In doubted whether It would not bo in greater danger ol ovet ? throw if our present population were confined to the comparatively narrow limits of the rriginal thirteen -tates, than it is, now that tney are sparsely settled over a more i xpar..!<-d territory It is corfidently believed that '?ur syst. m m y n? safely extended to the utmoat hounds t ur territorial limits; and that, as it shall be extended -lie nondsof our Uuion, so far from being weakened, will become stronger. Noue can f.ul to see the danger to our safety and future peace, if Texas remains an independent State, or become* an ally or dependency of some foreign nation more pow - erlul than herself. Is there one among our citizens who wonll not profer perpetual peace with occa sioual wars, which so often occur between bordering in dependent nations I Is there one who would not prefer free intercourse with her, to high duties on all our pro ducts and manufactures which rnter her ports or croi her frontiers 1 Is there one who would not prefer an un restricted communication with her citizens, to the fron tier obstructions which must occur if she remains out ot the Union 1 Whatever is good or evil in the local Insti tutions of Texas, will remain her own, whether annexed to .the United States er not. None of the present State* will be resposible lorthem, any more than they are for tbr local institutions of each other. They have confederated together fur certain crecified objects. Vpon the same principle that they would refuse to form a perpetual union with Texas, because of her local institutions, our fore lathers would have been prevented from forming our present Union. Perceiving no valid objection to the mea-ure, and many roasons lor its adoption, vitally affecting the peace, the safety, and the prosperity oi both countries, I shall, on the broad principle which lormed the basis and produced the adoption of our eonstitution, and not in any narrow spirit oi sec tional policy, endeavor, by all constitutional, honorabl -, and appropriate means, to consummate the expressed will ol the people and government of the United 8tates, by the re-snuexation of Texas to our Union at the earliest practicable period. Nor will it become in a less degree my duty to assert and maintain, by all constitutional means, the righi ul the United States to that portion of our ter ritory which lies beyond the Rocky Mountains. Our title to the country of the Oregon is "cleai and unquestionableand already are our people preparing to perfect that title by occupying it with thei wives and children But eighty years ago, our populn lion was confined on the west by the ridge of the Alio glianies Within that period?within the life time, I might ?ay, ol some of my hearers?our people, increasing to many millions, have filled the eastern valley oi the Mis ?issippi; adventurously ascended the Missouri to Us head springs ; and are already engaged in establishing tbi blessings o( self-government in valleys, af which tne ri vers flow to the Pacific. The world beholds the peaceful triumphs of the industry of our emigrants. To us be longs the duty ot protecting them adequately, wherevt r they may be upon our soil. The jurisdiction of oar laws and the benefits of our republican institutions, should he extended over them in the distant regions which tbey hnre selected for their homes. The increasing facilities of intercourse will easily bring the States, of which the formation in that part of our territory cannot be long de layed, within the sphere ot our lederativo Union. In the meantime, every obligation impoaed by treaty or oonven tional stipulations should be sacredly respected. In the management of our foreign relations, it will b> my aim to observe a careful respect lor the rights of oth er nations, while our own will be the subject of constant watchfulness. Equal and exact justice should charac terizeall our intercourse with foreign countries. All al liances having a tendency to jeopard the welfare and ho nor of our country, or aacrifice any one of the natienn! interests, will be studiously avoided; and yet no epportu nity will be lost to cultivate a favorable understands p with foreign governments, by which our navigation an t commerce may be extended, and the ample products oI our fertile soil, as well as the manufactures of our skilful artisans, find a ready market and remunerating prices in foreign countries. In taking "care that the laws be faithfully executed," f strict performance ef duty will be exacted lrom all public officers. From those officers, especially,who are charged with the collection and disbursement of the public re venue, will prompt and rigid accountability be required Any culpable failure or delay on their part to account for tan moneys intrusted to them, at the timeaxnd in the man uiredby law, will, in e ?er rr quired by law, will, In every instance, terminalr the official connection of such defaulting officer with th< government. Although, in onr country, the chief magistrate mu*' almost of necessity be chosen by a party, ana stand pledg ed to its principles and measures, yet, in his official ac tion, he should not he the President of a part only, bat ol the whole i eopleofthe United States. While he execute* the laws with an impartial hand, shrinks from no proprr responsibility, and faithfully carries out in the executive department of the government the principles and poller ol those who have chosen him, he should not be unmind ful that our fellow-citizens who have differed with hire in opinion are entitled to the (till and free exercise of their opinions and judgments, and that the rights of all are an titled to respect and regard Confidently relying upon the aid and assistance of the co-ordinate departments of the government in conducting our public affairs, 1 enter upon the discharge of the high duties which have been assigned me by the people, agan htitnblv sunnlicatinr that Divina Rain* vhn hai v&trha1 humbly supplicating that Divine Being who has watche-' over and protected our beloved country from it? infancy to the present hour, to continue His gracious benediction upon us, that we may continue to be a prosperous and happy people. The Atlantic Stkam Shits ?We find the fol lowing capital hit at the Bostonians in the Port land Argut of the 3d ioat. We have one of the engravings spoken of in our office. It speaks ir the strongest language in favor of making New York the western terminus of all Atlantic steamers This harbor is never closed by ice. A splendid lithograph lias been got up, oi the steam abip Oiiiauuia, in the harbor ot Boston, hs she was freer trom uo ice embargo, the Sd of February, 1844 This en graving was ma<ie in honor of the princely liberality o1 the Boston merchants, who expended $10,000 in this sue cessiul effort to free the noble ship, and send her on her way to England. We learn trom the lithograph that it was necessary to cut a channel one hun dred feet wide, and seven miles long, before the Britannia could be freed from this embargo. Seve ral copies have been sent to Montreal, we learn, e> an illustration of the munificence ol the Bostonians I' also illustrates another point very clearly, (which those who sent them never thought of) and which has been covered up by our Boston friends, as much as possible? that the harbor of B is occasionally frozen a diatanco oi seven milea ! Considering the alatements that have been made, this lithograph is a very unloriunate witness?and it was s cruel joke to send them to Montreal. We learn they are very scarce in Boston," just at this moment" Fast Sailing.?The new barque Alert, built for a propeller, while fitting out here in the early pan of Jan. last, upon her first or trial voyage wilhou> a propeller, having excited a good deal of observa tion and conjecture as to her probable sailing qua lities, we have much pleasure in publishing an extract from Capt. Farnham's letter to the agents here, dated Kingston, Jamaica, 8th Feb., by which it will be seen that she is perhaps one of the fastest sailing vessels ever built. I will now give you sn account of the barque She delivered everything here in prime order, the deck load of horses, live stock, fruit, he., iucluded, in ten deys Irom New York, four and a hall of which the wind wee almost directly shea-*. We had one hesvy gale in the Gulf, in which aho performed a* well as any vessel could do She runs 10 to lOj knote on the wind, with ease. The brig Jo seph Howe, wbich sailed the same day from New York, had 18 deys passage, and, in fact, every thing thai has ar rived here from the States, has had a much longer pas sage than we, except the brig Ann Barney, who, the Cap tain saya, had the wind fair all the wnyj with such a wind I could make the passage in seven day*. She is ao tight that we have to let wsor into her in port, to keep her sweet. She took in a cargo of orange* at Kingston for New Or leans, and made the passage up to the city in seven day*. The dimensions of this vessel are ISA feet long, 94 feet beam, 10 feet hold, and she was built at Bath, Maine, in Oct. IM4. "Dibd at Ska."?We learn that Mr. D. D. De guradon, a passenger on board the brig Mohican, died on the 3d of February, when that vessel was three days out from Balize, Hon. It is supposed that he was a native of Paris. His friends can ob tain hia effects, and any further information rela tive to him, upon application to Mr. S. W. Lewis, No. 26 Coenties Slip. Wc hope that the French papers will copy this notice. St. David's Society?The pressure of newt from Washington, obliges us to postpone till to morrow our repon of the highly interesting pro ceedtnga at thg anniversary of the St. David's So ciety Inst evening. Grand Timtbilanck Cii.fbration ? One of the most interesting celebrations ot the season takes place this evening at the Tabernacle. There is to be an oration by the eloquent Mr. Chapin, of Bos ton?singing by the '?

The prise of the city government is a inaguifin ut one?well worth lighting tor, aud the approaching conflict promises to be one of the closest and most intense, we have witnessed in many years. Tne Whigs are very active. They are re-organ izirg and brushing up in all directions The old ?clubs" are to lesume their operations, and every precaution is tuken to ensure the bringing out ot the lull Whig force. Mr. Selden, the Whig candi date for the Mayoralty, will make a very excellent M iyor. He is an honest, straight forward, in dustrious and business man?not a violent parti zin, and hence, with some, not very popular, but to the intelligent and respectable citizens, this is one of his best recommendations. Mr. Selden will in deed run well. The locofocos elect their delegates to the nomi nating convention to-morrow evening. They have been unusually quiet in their movements thus far with regard to the municipal election. Some imagine that in their squabblings and feuds about the spoils to be dispensed si head-quarters, they have conqiaratively lost sight of matters nearei home, but that is a very silly conjecture. The lo cofocos were never more determined, and more wide awake, with respect to the election in this city than at this moment. They will be out soon with their candidate for the Mayoralty, and will make a very united and vigorous fight. They will concentrate their s?reng'h in ihe doubtful wards, aud will leave nothing undone to obtain victory. As for (he poor "Natives," their prospects are gloomy in the extreme. Their conduct has disgust ed every body. Their violation of their pledges? thtir corrupt contracts?their neglect of duty? their miserable and farcial efforts at reform?their increase of the taxes, and their general imbecility, stupidity aud wortblessness, have rendered them ihe objects of general execration and ridicule.? They will, however, make great efforts to retain office, and as the great struggle will be between them and the Whigs, the scene will be amusing in the extreme. Licentiousness of the Party Press.?It is real

ly painful to observe the scurrilous aud abusive mauuer in which the Courier, Tribune and kin dred party journals are assailing Mr. Tyler, on hit retirement from the Presidency. Every vitupera live epithet, which malice and vulgarity can sug gest, is applied to the late Chief Magistrate of this country. And these arc the newspapers which, affect to be respectable?to be patriotic?to be tin representatives of American public opinion! 1 would not be easy to exaggerate the degradation and contempt with which such reckless, violen and rabid party journalism has loaded the Ameri can character and American institutions.

Serious Railroad Accident.?We understanr that the train ot cars for Baltimore, which left thir city on Saturday afternoon, met with quite an alarming disaster about 8 o'clock in the evening, when a short di tance this side of Elkton, (Md.) The night was daik and tht train progres>ing at the rate of about eighteei miles an hour, when the locomotive run over a bull thn: had lain itself across the rails. The locomotive clean r the obstruction with a bound, and fell in its proper plac? upon the rails on the other side, hut thn violence of thi jerk parted the coupling chaina, and threw the foreme i car over and down thn embankment at the side of th< road, with such force as completely to crush the top an<> sides, depositing it Anally bottom uppermost. The cat was crowded, every seat being full, aud the passenger! were only saved from being crushed by tha superincum bent weight of running gear, by the sustaining power 01 the backs ol the mats, the frames of which were, fortu nately, of iron. The second car contained sixty passen gers, and the violent concussion extinguished th? lights, upset the stove and filled the car with eahea, t< which in a few moments was added an almost stifling ga> from the overthrow stove. The windows were harre.' in, and the car rtaelf so twisted, that it was impossible to open the doors. Thn car i self was lifted from its loui wheels, and lay partially down the embankment. Tht Hon. John M. Clayton, who was a passenger, with a pro per presence of mind induced such oonflJence, thst proper measures being taken, n release was soon safely effected. The third car remained upon the track, but, like the two before it, wa* badly shattered. The paasen get? instantly set about rescuing those who were con fined among the fragments, and after a genvral rescue, it was found that although there were many bruizes and ?cratches there were no material injuries?the worst mii fortunes falling upon Mr. Drayton of this city, whom we regret to know was somewhat hurt In the side, and Mr. Sewall, of Baltimore, one of whose feet was badly bruised Mr. Drayton walked to Elkton after the accident. Help and additional cart were obtained after some delay, and the pasaengem carried through to Baltimore, thankful for their narrow and very providential ?scape.?Phila. Gazette, March 8.

They have with them a small brnrs piece, (a lour pounder) which they have attached to the outside of one of the cars, in tending, we understand, to discoarse Texas Thunder as they pass along the road between this city and Wash ington. The cara from the Weat on Saturday night were eight in number, and were all full; those of last night were also crowded to excess. The Philadelphia rail-road company have been running extra trains for the last three days. Great numbers have arrived by the cart from York, and the steamboat* plying to this city are ar riving full.

The Texas excitement has passed away, it has not even been a nine days wonder, ana the effect produce ! upon the stock market is rapidly disappearing. The adjourn ment of Congress cannot hut have a very favorable it.flu ence upon commerci '1 affairs generally, and stock opera Uom particularly The inaugural message ot President Polk will, we ar< informed, be very moderate in its tono and mild in its doctrines. His policy is to keep h s administration ac distinct from party feelmg as possible, and in his sugges tions will adhere a* closely as possible to s median course in relation to our internal and external affairs. Ii relation to the Texas question, he will undoubtedly in the negociations authoriaed, endeavor to conciliate th> government of Mexico, and if possible bring about th< Annexation of Texas upon constitutional ground", an upon terms perfectly satisfactory to the three govern meats interested. We do not believe the new administra tion will be in any degre-j marko ' by any great change in our foreign relations, but on the contrary reel cc nftden that all laws relating to commercial affairs will rotnait without much alteration, and that the country wil advance in prosperity as rapidly as the laws now enforce will admit. For the past three years there has been t steady improvement to all department* of business; tin der existing laws, commercial affairs have wonderful!} prospered, and must continue to so long a* the mercantile classes are not trammelled with restrictive laws, or sub ject to continual changes in the policy ol the govern ment. All they want is permanenoy. The administration of Mr. Polk, we are it duced to believe, will not be an ex perimenting one, and should the inaugural confirm thi* belief, there must be an increased confidence in the pre sent condition and permanency of our public aflairs. There is very little doing in th s market in foreign ex change. We still quote sterling bills at 9] a 10 p?r cent premium.

The committee saw no good reason why they should net have a charter, and bad accordingly re ported back the bill without amendment. A movement has recently hern made by a new compa ny,'to putchase the charter, surveys, Sic. of the Albany and New Yoik Railroad Company, and to commence con. structiug the roed between tbut c ty and thia at once. Should this new company succtd iu its contemplated opeintiens, it will do aw ay with the uecessi'y of obtain ing a charter lor the Troy an t Orcenbush Railroad As sociation, as the conditions required in the charter of the Albany and New York Railroad Company will then be conformed to. The Troy and Oreenbush Railroud is nearly fitiRhrd, and but lor the rivalry and competition between the citizens of Troy and Albany, the road would now be in active operation A citizen of Albany owns the six l?ts spoken of by the c mmittee, and he neks lor them about fifty timer their value; and not only dimands this exorbitant price, but purchased them expressly to obstruct the line of the railroad, or compel the association to pay the price demnnd'd The Harlem Railroad Company has apple. J to the Legislature for the privilege of continuing tbtir road to Albany, either under a new charier or under the ohaiter of the Albany and New York Railroad Company. The Harlem Company are without doubt best entitled to the piiyilege, and we have no doubt, it it was granted, the Company would carry tliu road rapidly through. They have twen ty five miles already completed and in running order.
