Cabinet Nearly Finished making Nominations?No United States Judge for Pennsylvania to be nominated this Session? Senate Finance Committee?Dixon H. Lewis? Free Trade, $-c?Discontent among the Cliques? The Van Bur emits?President Polk? Temperance lecture by Mr. Qough. The Senate, yesterday, confirmed all the nomina tions before it, among which were those of Butler, Purdy, and Wetmore, as well as the Charges to Peru, Venezuela und Naples, with a multitude of minor importance, which will be published offi cially in a short time. To-day, they have eon firmed but one important nomination?that of Mr. Shields, of Louisiana. The Cabinet has been hard at work all the week grinding down recommendations into appoint ments. It has met every day, and continued in session some three, or four, or five hours. I learn that they expect to-morrow's work will complete their toils for the present, and all the nominations to be made for the Senate to act upon before the meeting of the next Congress, will then be sent in and probably confirmed, and the Senate may possi bly adjourn to-morrow afternoon, though this is uncertain. It is supposed that the ZoTl Verein treaty has been under discussion to-day, as only one nomination has been confirmed. The President will not, 1 am informed, make any nomination at the present session of the Senate for a Judge of the United States Supreme Court, for Eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey. The claims of Judge Read, Ex Secretary Wilkins, and Ex-Governor Vroom, are all urged with much per tinacity, and the President will take time to con sider and submit a nomination next winter. I learn that Dixon H. Lewis, of Alabama, was one of the Senators struck of! the Committee on Finance by Vice President Dallas, from the caucus nomination, and Mr Phelps, of Vermont, was the one substituted. The Committee, as it stands, is termed by the free traders, "fishy." It consists of Woodbury and McDuffie, free traders, Evans and Phelps, high tariff men, and Benton, fishy, he hav ing formerly been an ardent supporter of the so called American ryBtemf Had I). H. Lewis have remained it would have been decided free trade. He considers himself very ill used, and grumbles at this treatment, and this is another of the causes operating to blow up into a flame the discordant elements on the Democratic side of ihe Senate. Every day adds to the discontent which is felt and expressed by the various cliques here. The Van Burenites, too, are the loudest in their profes sions of dissatisfaction. They utteily repudiate the idea that they have any influence in the^Cabi net superior to that of the other cliques, and, in deed they say that President Polk is making capital for himself already. Thus it is, ihe Cabinet has an influence, and a powerful influence, and because it is not at ull exerted for them, they say that Mr. P. must be having an eye to his own interests, and then they ask why did he not announce his inten tion net to run for a second <erm in his inaugural. Perhaps, however, these Van Burenites are only making this noise on the principle on which the rogue is the first and loudest in the cry of " stop thief, stop thiefhoping thereby to draw atten tion from himself, that he may escupe with the spoils. True it is that the other cliques say that the Van Buren influence is all in ail in the cabinet, and that nothing else can prevail. Perhaps, how ever, after all, Mr. Polk sees his position. If he have the sagacity, the foresight, the prudence, the firmness, the great mind which his party attribute to him, he must have perceived that the materials he has to deal with are such as will require a stronger rein than any other he has ; but putting himself out as a candidate for re-election, and his cautious silence on this topic may pre ceed from that wisdom with which his po litical friends have invested him. There was a great assemblage in the E street Baptist Church last evening to listen to a tempe rance address from Mr. Gough. He made a most powerful and affecting address, and while his amusing anecdotes would waken a roar of laugh ter, his description of the evils ol intemperance, and the horrors and terrors of delirium tremens were so thrilling, that the pocket kerchiefs ot the audience were frequently in requisition. He set forth most admirably the reasons why the young men should join thisgreat movement, and appealed most forcibly to men of influence and standing lo give the weight of their example to the cause. His oratory is most effective, quite natural, and from that cause, exercising the greater influence. I learn that quite a large number of persons signed the pledge at the conclusion of the address. Washington, March 13, 1846. Theatrical Benefit Ball?Description of the Saloon? of Captain Ryndtrt, tyc.? of the general Com plexion and Character of the Fite?of the Ladies in the aggregate, with interesting Specifications in Detail?of the Gentlemen?the Supper?the Ma nagement, fyc , carefully interrpersed with Poetic Illustrations from the most Popular Authori ties. " From the sad day upon which Adam was made to dauce out of the garden of Eden?in all agea ot this orb men dance?in all climates?in every lati tude?on the great continents, and in the green islands of the ocean, the pastime of the dance seems to have been spontaneous, like the principle of religion?and like it a never-failing source of pleasure and thrilling delight. Kings and mighty potentates, the great and the beautiful, through all the gradations of man's most bloody and disgrace ful history, have bowed to the divinity of 'Terp sichore, and sought her consolations in the midst of smoking cities, and nations desolated. In short, from the morning when the satellites of the sun first moved off in the grand cotillon of the constel lations of heaven, down to the present day,dancing has been a very popular recreation. But we think this is quite preface enough; as it is our solemn purpose and bounden duty to report to you some thing of the ball last night given at Carusi's saloon, for the benefit of the actors and actresses whs were suflerers from the late conflagration of the National Theatre. ?" The evenmg was clear and balmy as the first wind of spring stealing up from the gulf into the green valleys of Western Texas; and all over the sky, like diamonds? " The itsri above were brightly ahining, Became they'd nothing else to do." 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 Arrived at the spot, we were ushered into a sa loon illuminated by not less than three thousand sperm and wax candles, disposed along and around the walls in fantastic figures, while overhead were suspended through the centre of the room, equi distant, three tremendous candelebras, each con taining several hundred long nines of clarified sper maceti. These candelebras were formed, like the wheels of Milton's chariot, "of a wheel within a wheel," or rather of a wheel above a wheel, the bottom one describing a circle of thirty feet; the second half the size; the third proportionately re duced, forming altogether a brilliant, unique, and luminous illumination. At the head of the saloon was a raised platform, tastefully carpeted, and pro vided with cushioned seats, in addition to the line on each side the apartment. On the wall back of this platform, as large as life, high up among the clouds, dazzling with the glory ot her charms, was a portrait ot Fanny the Divine, a la Splphide. sweep ing away triumphantly in one of her divinest de monstrations in the poetry of motion. Ahl Fanny! Fanny! " Di tempo in tempo mi *i fa men dura L'Angelica figure, e'i doles rise;" The company was not numerous, probably two hundred strong; many, as we learned, who had subscribed to the benefit, being absent, but in its composition it was eminently respectable and po lite, being of the same personages, ladies and gen tlemen, in the main, who were wont to kick out the threadbare carpeting of the East Room in the happy reunions at the white House, under the old Virginian dispensation ot honest John Tyler. Ah! those happy, happy evenings, with that hapny com pany in the East Room?those delicious" drawing rooms" of Mrs. Tyler's, as John Jones styled the charming gatherings semi-monthly at the Execu tive Mansion! Ah! my dear, sir, they were a good, hospitable and amiable family, were these Tyler's, alter all?that they were. Alas! alas! we are afraid that Mrs. Polk is too true a Presbyterian to keep up this sort of recreation, indeed, we arei and, therefore, those cotillon parties of the people in the house of their favorite servant will temam out in recollection, as Ossian mournfully stags? 11 Like the memory of day* that arsgone, Pleasant and mournful to the soul." The dancing was commenced in a very delibe rate, premeditated, and business-like manner. The music was, as the Brigadier General of song wri ters would say, rteherchi; so was the company; ao was the prevailing ?pint, id tact ? " Two hundred heart* beat happily, and when Mitiic aroae with it* voluptuous await, Hoft eyes looked lova t* *>'?', which apoka again, And all went merrv a* a man tags ballj But, huah!?" For there conies Capt. Rynde.-u, the incorruptible politician, and the gallant gay Lothario of the 9ub terraneana?the modern Leander, who would awim the Potomac for a kiee?the American Don J uaa,
