mouths Id the j??r. Tlie summer travel over thia rosd h very great, auJ the laituer it exttnds into th* inte rior, the greater will be the travel, both lor bueinaae udi! iileii iiH. This Cotnpsny will, without doobt, be ?uthirned by the Legislature now hi ceatiniM ^ ii road to Albany. A charter of that hind (ranted to la company, moat prevent any rival Company from building .1 road on the same route. The HarUm Company U <v? about twenty-five miiea already ronatrncted, and IB active operation,ond there ia capital sufficient ready at any moment to be paid in to c >rry the toad to Albany. The N v au 1 Albany Railroad Company will net do much mora than report about end agitata the matter every ?e??ion of the Legislature. New ntnri may be brought lot ward, new arrangement* may be mada, and edditiorw' I capital applied lor to enatire the completion of the root, but there h-is already been ao much time wasted in these II "rlim nui ie* by this company, that we have abandoned all hope of anythirg being done under that charter. We do not hesitate to basert mat t a railroad ia ever complet ! od he? wen the city of New York and Albany, on the east ' "ido of the Hudson river, it will bo constructed by the Har lem Railroad company.

The total decrease for the quarter being $1 136 138. The importations this season have been nearly hs 1. tg- as for i he aamet'me lost year; while the duties have Isl'cnoif nbout twenty per cent, the importations have "tily diminished about seven per cent. To have brought nboutthis state ot things, the average rate of duty upon the import* must have been very much reduoed The imuoriHt ions of free goods the first [quaiter thia year were much 1 irgrrthan for the same quarter last year, but the in crease was not sufficient to have made ao wide adiffereuce in tbe duties. The average rate af duty ia annually da creaiing, and *in time a reduction to a revenue standard must br- made. The finances of Mississippi, according to a special re l-nit mode by the nuditnr of the State to tha Governor, dated Match 18, 1845 appear to be in a much belter coo dition than anticipa'ed. The receipts and expenditures of *be State Treasury from Jan 1st, 1844, to March 1st, 1846, a period otiourteen mouths, were as follows:? Finance* or Mississtrri^ Amount received into Treasury for the csllendir year I8t4 $347,757 80 dmount received into Treasury January 2. l-ebruary, 1845 108,363 37 (etc* " $456,181 17 Amount of warrants issued upon the 'l'rrasu-y f r the tear 1844 $867,621 18 Am't of warr Aits issuid upon the Trea sury duriLg Jan. and FeO., 1845 38,030 50 305,651 60 Btlsnce in favor of receipts.

The Auditor's report shows that about $80,000 is still to be received from tax coiltctors ol th* taxes of 1848 and 1844. In the Auditor's report there are items of expenditures which appear tor the year 1844, amounting to $118,600, which will not come upon the Trta-ury this year. Borne of these items were appropriations tot the legislature, for locating lands, advertising sales for taxes, fcs. It is confidently anticipated that the outstanding warrants of the State,will bo redeemed in the courae of another year. After the lit of November next the bill reducing the salaries of the State officers, judicial and executive, will take effect, when the annual expenditure* of the State will be much reduced. The reportotthe S ate Treasurer will be is sued from that department in e few days, when a more p?rf.cts> uopsis of the condition of the State finances will be in .do public. Lai go sums of old warrants have been paid to the Treasurer by the commissioners of the sinking and seminary funds Warrants amounting to $47,000 are rcpmed'?to be in the vaults of tbe Planters' Bank at Na'cbiz in account ot tbe sinking fund. The public indebtedness of Miiilssippi amount* in the aggregate to $7,000 000. of which only $3,600 000 was the direct debt ot the State,[leaving a balance of fO.oOO.OOO as the indirect debt ef the Statu The internet upon thia in direct debt would annually amount to more than the ag pr-'cate annuel receipts into the Treasury. The direct deb: is very small, and the linking lund accumulating wi 1 ultimately protect that amount of tha public indebt edness.

ATA MEETING OK THE TENTH WARD, held at the Military Hall, Bowery, pursuant to the call of JobH-a k-ll, on Thursday evsninar, April 3d, George Denison war call ed to the Chair and John Van Tine was appointed Secretary. Gn motion the call of the meeting w-s read and acca,'ted. Th? meeting was addressed by Job Haskell. Whereas, the Native party came into power upon having pro mised to m <ke a thorough reform in the Alms House, Prisons, Slreeta, Polire, and in fact every department of the City Go vernment; laves were to be lowered, and ways and means were to be devised to extinguish the debt of twelve mi'liona without a retort to taxing the inhabitant for that purpoae, promises which t' ey never meant to redeem. Taxes ere higher?the effi cacy of the Poliee destroyed. Tney have organized a large body of men called Municipal Police, we believe, for electioneering purposes, to act a? spies nnon. and overawe our citizens, and eat out their tu'?stance. Money haa been vqnande ed upon fa vorites. the rights of citizens violated and trampled upon, and t - cap the climax the atrteta have ben ai I thv as the princi plas of the Native party are obnoxious and disrus'ing: and whereas, it ta the del'berate opinion of this ma'ting that Mayor Harper and the Native Aide men have bean guilty of gross ne glect, if not of a violation of their dutv as matistrataa. andtf cosdnct tendiog to do injn-tiee to the eommnni'y, because their acta have reen solely for the aggrandizement of their Na tive party. And whereas, thrv have exhibited e malicious, vio lent, sectarian, and an ungovernable temper, rendering them un fit for a proper, fair and impartial discharge of the duties of their said offices, therrfo-e be it Resolved, That we will use all honorable means on the Ith ol Apri', in our several wards, to defeat their re-election, end to elect intelligent and honest men to fill their placet, who will act for the many and not for the few. Fevo'ved, That the nomination of William F. Havermeyer meets with our eordial approbation,and we pledge to the Demo cratic party onr undivided aid and exertion* to secure his elec tion, and the whole Democratic ticket. Resolved. That it wss th" understanding at the organisation of the Native party, that thtmovemeat was to correct Munici pal abases only, and that its members should vote with their former paries as to State and National affairs, without being trampled npon by the iron heel of tyranny, for exsretsing that right which alone constitutes s freeman. Resolved, That the Democrats ate absolved from all allegi ance to the Native party, who havo hoisted th* bloody flag of persecution, and have violated every principle of honor and pro mise made to them and to the pnblic.

Seriously, we shall have, by and by, to haul some of these constitutional gentlemen over the charcoals. We have not told one half that we know ot the derelictions of official functionaries in Washing ton, political hs well as moral derelictions. A gentleman from Frederick, Md , |says it was rumored there yesterday that a duel had been fought in that State betwi-en Ex-Governor Thomas and Col. Benton, and that Thomas, like Gen. Jackson, was shot by the redoubtable Colonel in the arm. Our informant, however, says that the rumor was quashed last evening, by the arrival of 1 homos, in his own proper person, in Frederick, safe and sound. The trial of this gentleman for slander and datamation, comes cfl at the next term ot our Circuit Court, in June next, when it is understood mat the Ex-Governor, who is an able pleader, will stand up like St. Paul, Fenuimore Cooper and Mike Walsh, in his own defence. His trial will be one ot the most interesting, if not superceded by more summary proceedings, that has been held in this District for years-from the nature of the case?the character and standing of the plaintiff and defendants?and from the number and high position of the witnesses that will be summoned on the occasion, pro and con. The friends of Mrs. Linn, widow of the late ex cellent Senator Dr. Linn, is a candidate for the post office at St. Louis. We are sorry to be in tormed by Mrs N?rm?n that Col. Benton is op posed to Mrs. Linn's appointment as postmistress, on the ground that she is a "soft," while the Co lonel is known|to beja "hard,"and at the very head of that faction of the democratic party in Missouri. All that we know of Mrs. Linn, (who being a can didate for* public favor becomes subject to public criticism,) is, that she is a most interesting, intel ligent and amiable woman; and that Colonel Ben ton is too hard in resisting her appointment, be cause she is a soft, (and we would'nt give a fig for a woman who were any thing else,) that he might be ashamed of himeell in opposing her claim, it he does oppose it, and ought to use his best exertions in support of the claim ot the engaging and merito rious widow. Several subordinates removed from the post of fice to-day, and others reported as being removed Irom the Treasury. Ex-Gov. Bartley of Ohio, (a democrat,) son oi Gnvemer Bartley, a whig, is appointed District Attorney for Ohio; and Mr. Robinson, editor of the Jjancaster Eagle, went off some days ago with his commission in his pocket, as Uni ted States District Marshal lor the State of Ohio.

Hurrah tor Tenneasee. .Why, even our friend Harriman, a late whig editor in Tennessee, may stand a chance for an office. Only let him hail from Tennessee. Coalman. Washington, April 3,1845. Mr. Buchanan gone Home for hit Nieces, fyc.?Mr. Bancroft not telurned?No Cabinet Council? Rumored appointment of U. S. District Attorney at Baltimore?Cruel Joke perpetrated on Offi-t Seekers and Holders?Made April Fools of?

Chargt to Austria. Mr. Buchanan' having left the city to escort bis nieces and his housekeeper to this city, to take charge of his domestic economy and ar rangements in the houseu which lie is said) to have hiied for Bix months only, and Mr. Bancroft being not yet returned to Washington from "tiii visit north lor his family, Cabinet Councils have been in abeyance, and the remaining heada of de partments have had a little more time to attend to the pressing requirements of office-seekers, who, like the insatiate daughters of the horse leech, are continually crying "give," "give!" No further appointments have therefore, yet been made, unless I except a rumor which states that on Monday last the Cabinet agreed uf on the nomination of Mr. Marshall, of Baltimore, for United States District Attorney, in place ofZ. Col lins Lee, the appointee of Mr. Tyler, whose term would not otherwise expire until September. Mr. L?e was a Harrison whig during the campaign of 1840, of the very tallest sort, but subsequently was a good Tyler man. and was one of the ac companying suite with John Tyler,on his memora ble procession to Bunker Hill?he is also a rela tive orMr. Gales, of the " National Intelligencer," and therefore he has got to walk Spanish imme diately, if not sootier. There are also rumors that some other appointments for Baltimore were agreed upon at the same Cabinet meeting, but 1 have not learned what they are. A cruel joke was penetrated upon the "office seeking fraternity," and also upon a number of the Departmental Clerks on the first of April. On that day quite a Dumber ot the latter, particularly those in the bureaus which have new chiefs, on repair ing to their offices in the morning, found lying up on their decks a small neatly folded note addressed to them, un opening them with fear and trembling, they found the note to consist of a polite, yet un mistakable intimation, that their services were not required any longer. Forthwith they were seized with consternation dire, particularly such as were not overburdened with funds, and had not been overly prudent in the disbursement of their salaries. As soon as the poor recipients could re cover sufficient presence ot mind, thev repaired to their chiefs room, with pale and anxious counte nances and trembling limbs, to asceriain the cause, the reason, the why and wherefore, of their dis missal; and there learned the tact, of whic|ti they had previously been perfectly oblivious, that it was "all-fool's day." Their lear was then turned to indignation, and dire were their threatening of what they would do and what they wouldn't do, if they only could find out their tormentor. Flaying would have been mercy to the torments they would have inflicted upon him; if they only knew htm, wooldn't he catch it, oh no ! not at all, aaid these sanguinary individuals?only let them catch him, that wss nil! The "office seekem" were served out in a differ ent style. Each one who was known, or imagined to he seeking an office, received a very polite note, s gned R. J. Walker, Secretary of the Treasury, requesting the individual addressed, to call at the Tieasury department to see the Hon. Secretary.o.i important business,on the following morning. Am. was there not a gathering 1 Each one came there armed with his note of invitation, with his exper tation roused to its highest pitch, withasmtlir face, and anxiety and care banished from the thoughts, their only trouble being the difficulty ut. der which they were laboring as to whether they should accept the office which was "going" to oe tendered to ihrir acceptance. Such was the state ol their feelings before admittance to an audience wnh the worthy Secretary of the Treasury. How different atterwaide! Curses not only "deep," but nl.?o "loud," were neither few nor far between.? Brows covered with portentious frowns?scowling looks?clenched hands und compressed lips, and angry tread, all told the tale?the.y were not anly disappointed but deceived, be-fooled, aid April fools at that. I guess the perpetrator of that joke was a happy man that he was not known?there was the boiling hot wrath of the Southerner, who would have cased his bowie knife instanter ia his carcase, and the cool calculating Northerner, who would have refined in his cruelty,and watch ed the agonies of his tormented victim, while the dashing western man would have hugged him?oh, what a precious squeeze he would have given htm! 'Twas well indeed for htm that he had preserved hta incognito. " The oraanship," I understand, is settled. Rit chie and Heiss are to purchase the Globe. No mistake about it. It seems queer, however, that Blair, alter his boasting that no one was able to buy htm out, should retire so willingly, and thi skeptics will not believe but that he has retained a large interest in the concern, wtyle Ritchie ai Heiss ore to be editors for the present. Ritchie, i am informed, accepted on condition that he was to have his own way in fighting the tariff". What stuff"! He won't be able to satisfy the southern men that there is to be any alteration in the tariff while Mr. Buchanan is premier. It is said here, that he wont even be able to get the printing ot more than one branch of Congress.and that he will make a failure of his government organ in short order, for his power exists not out of V irginia. The Constitution looked very " organish" two or,three days past Mr Walker has evidently* friendly loaning towards it, as may b? seen by hi?
