?"*rtA.MS.il Grsat Wa.srsKN.?'ibis packet is now in her eighteenth day. War with Mcilto, CorjitdcMblo excitement lias beeu produced du ring the list few days, by the circulation of a ru mor, that the Mexican government had declared war ag-tiUfct Alleghania, soon after the receipt of the intelligence ol the passage of the annexation resolutions had reached them. The rumor waB originated in Washington by the Portugutte charge ties affaires and an attadu of the Spanish legation, and received additional color from the fact, that informa'ion had been received by Mr. I'ukenham, the Briti&n Minister at Washington, from the Min ister of Great Britain in Mexico, that he had been formally notified, in common with the representa tives of other foreign powers, that in case the Senate should pass the resolutions then ' known to have patsed the House, the act would be followed by the usual steps preliminary to a declaration of war. No communication of any hostile intentions on the part of Mexico, has been yet made to our government. We may expect, however, very shortly to hear of a lormal notification from the Mexican Govern ment, to such citizens of Alleghania asjmay be resident within their territory, requiring them to leave the country ; and it is not at all unlikely that the hostile feeling in Mexico may operate so rtrongly as to lead to some overt acts against the rights of those citizens, which cannot be redressed in the ordinary and pacific manner. The position which Mexico has assumed with regard to annex ation, the character of the men who have at present the reins of power in that republic, and the peculiar condition of popular feeling towards this country, render it extremely probable that violent counsels may predominate, and that summarily setting aside all treaty stipulations, the Mexican Govern ment may at once assume a directly hostile atti tude. The blustering bravado or actual hostility of Mexico, it need hardly be Psaid, will amount to pretty mucn the same thing. There is little danger of such an encounter between the two countries as could be dignified with the title of a war. Any in fraction of the nght8ofAIleghanian citizens in Mex ico, will be chastised, and ,the injuries redressed, I and annexation will be quietly effected. But still a great panic may be produced, and as much dis turbance be created in the commercial and politi cal world as if Mexico and Alleghania were really engaged in a bloody and highly respectable war Every item of intelligence relative to Mexican af. fairs, thus becomes invested with the greatest in terest, and we shall be enabled to keep our readers fully informed of all that transpires. Thk New Coloration at Work Already- ' Thk "Spoils" versus "City Reform."?Last night the newly elected Corporation held.a'caucus I he work of dividing the spoils was begun, but no progress was made. So numerous?so hungry -so ravenous were the applicants for office, whose claims were presented, that the caucus,with all the past experience of the members in the busine?i appealed to be perfectly appall, d, and it was up' wards of an hour before they even ventured to ap proach the work belore them. Several nomina tions, however, were presented, and amongst them that of Mr. Charhck, as President of the Board ol Aldermen. But nothing was definitely agreed upon, and it is calculated that at least twenty-five caucusses must be held before any reasonable por tion of the labors of the new city government can be disposed of in a satisfactory mauner. Already a division into three or four cltgue, is progrtssing very comfortably, and the prospect of cquabbling aid quarrelling opens with a degree of richness quite unsurpassed in the recollection of the oldest' habitant in the regions of corporation corruption. What a sad spectacle doej all this present to the eyes of this community! Here we have the new Corporation, instead of honestly going to work lor the purpose of discovering needed reforms, and devising the best means of accomplishing them, unblushingly meeting for the purpose of apportioning the spoils. Thus has this city been cursed from year to year. Party after party, and one set of men after another, have pre sented themselves to the people of this city, and appealed to them for their suffrages, under the most solemn pledges to give us a good city govern ment, and uniformly, no sooner have they been ' elected, than they have proceeded with the utmost coolness and most unblushing effrontery to east their pledges and promises to the winds, utterly ne glecting the interests of the community, and acting entirely regardless of every thing except plunder. We must confess that we were weak enough to hope that the members of the democratic Corpora tion just elected would have profited hy ii?<r expe rience of former years, and that they would have made some effort to introduce a spirit of honesty, fidelity and reform with their administration of the' city government. Already we ara presented with melancholy evidence that the old dynasty has been restored with all its unfaithfulness to the public in terests?all its disregard of ever* thine but the " spoils" of office. nnring the past year wc have virtually had no city government at all. The woik of reforaa is still more necessary and more difficult than ever. Abuses have been increased and multiplied. The streets are in a worse condition than ever. The taxes are more burdensome than ever. The police department is in a state of greater disorganization and inefficiency than ever. The number of petty offenders is greater than ever. The low grog-shops are greater nuisances than ever. The (rambling house*?the brothels?the junk-shops for the sale of stolen property?the haunts of crime?the abodes of wretchedness and vice?have multiplied. The public health is seriously endangered by nuisances, which are more numerous and pestiferous than ever. The great city of New York, indeed, ex hibits at this moment an example of the evil effects of corrupt, dishonest, and inefficient government, which is disgraceful beyond description. With its filthy and dilapidated streets?with its miserable police? ith its swollen criminal calendar?with its enormous load of taxation, the metropolis of the Union does indeed present a spectacle on which the philanthropist may well look with pity and hor ror. And yet with the necessity of reform?impressed upon them by every clond of dust which suffocates the unfortunate traveller in Broadway?by every police report which they take up in the morn ing?and by the rueful countenance ef everv tax payer whom they meet?the new Corporation, one and all, set to work to quarrel about the spoils, on which they and their hangers-on rush with the ravenous impetuosity of a pack of huDgry hounds Jet loose upon a dead carcase ! We are, indeed, almost ready to give up every hope of ever obtain ing an honest, practical and salutary administra tion of the city affairs. The only resource now left the people of this city, appears to be in a complete re-organization of th* municipal government.? Once more we would appeal to the new Corpora tion. If there be not honesty and integrity enough amongst them to check that rapacity and utter dis regard of the public interest which nlready appear likely to characterize their conduct, let us hope that th?re is at least a sense of self-interest which will prompt them to such a course of policy as may preserve them from the overwhelming indignation of the community. We shall, however, watch all their movement, and act accordingly. Nkwaek Election.?-Whig Mayor and Record er of Newark lor the ensuing year were elected on Monday. ft>The Hon. Daniel Webster, whe has been at the Astor House since his return from Albany, re turns this day to hi* Mat at Mar*hflsld, Mmb *m ,ii.?i?i jii'jt. .Mgji't-jijmim.1 'fei1 .i.ia"rt Nhw You* Aphhmments at Washington.?A j gi ut many rumora have been floating about witU* in thr lust few da>?, relative to appointments to the eoveuimeut offices in this city. The Cotlrc ! torehip aud all ihe other important office* have tl.ua bten disposed of, Mr Coddington being com ( Iurtably installed in the custom house, and sundry oilier iiierdicants provided for in the 6anie man : ucr. All this is mere rumor, without any founda tion. The subject of the New York appointments his not been yet even formally introduced into the ' Cabinet Councils, and the statement* which have ? appeared are altogether gratuitous, and intended : only tor effect. Several deputations lrom this city have proceeded to Washington for the purpose of ! inducing Mr. Polk to make certain changes and : appointment*, but he refitted point blank to enter tain any of those propositions before the election; and although the disinterested and patriotic endea vors of the office-begging delegations have been renewed with fresh -vigor since that event, the whole subject still reinuins in tluiu quo. The great [object of assault by the mendicant : cli</tut, is the Collectorship of tho port. Every possible expedient has been resorted to for the pur pose of procuring the ejectment of the present ex cellent incumbent, Governor Van Ness. If impor tunity, such as I'As been rarely brought into play, could oust the Collector, Mr. Van Ness would have gone weeks ago, but thus far the President is alto gether unmoved. Whether he will consent to be at last badgered into the removal of the present incumbent, and the throwing open of the Custom House to the ra renoi'.a diquet that are besieging the administration, remains to be seen. Wc are inclined to believeL, however, from the indica tions, significant enough, which have been already afforded as to the future policy and course of Mr. Polk's administratio n, that the importunity of the New York office-b? ggars will fall short of its re ward, so far as the Collectorship is concerned. It is a very ir.ista ken idea, which is fondly cher ished in some quarters, that Van Burenism is to be restored. Neither Van Burenism, nor Calhounism, nor Cassism, nor Bentonism, nor any other ism, except Polkism, is to be in the ascendant in the administration for the next touryears. That'scer tain. Mr. Polk is slowly, cautiously, and with great tact and sue cees taking the machinery of the democratic parti < to pieces, reconstructing it, re jecting the old worn out portions, and useless ap pendages, and labricatirg a new, serviceable and powerful engine, over which he himself means to assume and maintain the entire control. He has in fact adopte?d and is carrying out that sagacious policy, whieh un able politician in Grecian story, advised and il'.u3trated, when he took into his gar den the messenger sent to consult him on the best means of freeing; the State from civil discord and demagogueism, and silently lopped off the heads ot all the tallest poppies. The noisy, scheeming, intriguing, raven oua leaders of petty cliqvxt are to be set aside, but the working men are to be retain ed and attached to the administration./There is very little reason, inde ed, to imgaine that the Collcc torship of New York?one of the most important and influential pouts under the government?will be permitted to become the nucleus of a clique which could, by ;iuy possibility,engage in business ?<n its own account, independent of the administra tion. The whole course of the new administra tion thus far, indicates a settled determination to organ<ze and sustain a strong, united, and practical ddminUtration party. Those who prophecy changes .?nd appointments, must therefore, mingle this bit of philosophy wit h their vaticinations. "As the bell is, so is the cl ipper."

A Snow Storm.?One week ago from last Tuesday, a snow storm visited the vicinity of Do ver, Me., and blocked up the roads with drifts, some ol which were four feet in depth. Mysterious Signal Fires.?The Philadelphia papers mention that signal fires are frequently seen burning in New Jersey, and they seem anxious to ascertain what they mean 1 We suppose that they have about as much to do with "lottery drawing" as with anything else. The Efwirtr of yesterday says We are informed that ilgnal fires at night,are now quite common in New Jersey?serosa which State, information and communication* are conttantly flitting with a myite rioua and phantom like ipeed and secrecy.

" bliis did|aot, in our juds-meut, play the hero ic as well as on some loruiet occasions Mrs Dy otl gave Claude's mother a rather amusing charac ter, by occasionally relating into the French patoit which she so effectively employed as ??

Mr. de Walden again, was " Twinkle," and even Mr. Chippendale as the Colonel, had a very perceptible rpicing of " Old Citaraugus." The effect of all this was frequent ly very amusing. It would appear, indeed, that the l ark company assumed bo much con amove [the characters given them by Mrs. Mowatt, that hey have partially lost their own identity. The performance of the " Lady of Lyons," howevei, went off very well last night, and on the fall of the curtain, Mr. Anderson was called lor in the most enthusiastic manner, and bowed his thanks to one of the best houses ever wen within the walls of " old Drury." Palmo*s.?The hou3e was rather slim. "An tigone " was again performed. Miss Clarendon was evidently suffering from indisposition, and could not appear in the "Lady of Lyons," which was to have been played with the tragedy. The farce cf " Mischief Making" was substituted, and went off very well. Nickerson and Mrs. Watts sustaining the principal characters. Anniversary of the New York Orphan Asy lum Society, The thirty-ninth anniversary of the Orphan Asylum Society of this city, took place yester ay' ^t.1.l0 d' At 12 o'clock the great saloon, which had been gradually filling for the previous hour, became entirely occupied.

I ha jury retired about twelve o'clock, anil about two o'clock tame in, and made an en quiry in relation to tome point of teitimonv which they did not perfectly understand Whilo the Jury were in, a tres*. udous flare up oocurred between Mr. Jordan and the Disrict Attorney. Mr. Jordan had the flotr, and endeavored to obtain the ear ol the Cotsrt, and Mr. Pater ?on rose at the aame time, begging lea. e to interrupt the gentlemin. Mr. Jordan inflated, and Mr. Patersen in iiit'd. Mr. Jordan contended, and Mr. Pattraon con tended- One gr. w hot, and the other grew hot, and both were quite angry. Mr. Jordan characterized the Oia trict Attorney's conduct as Infamous, sndsaid that as he was not here in Court at the time the testimony was given, he bad no riyht to say anything at all about it. Mr Patkbrou said he opened the cause, and knew what the testimony waa at the last trial. Mr. Jobdan said he should not think that the gentle nun would convict himself[of falsehood, or something ot the sort. Mr. Patebson got up and asked if the Court would allow the gentleman to go on in such a way?he had cha racterized his teitimony as infamous, and then accused him oi lalsehood, an accusation that he would no more dare to make out of his (Mr. P'a.) office or out ot the Court, than he would to fly in Qte air. Mr. Jobdi" said ha was not afraid of the Dlstriot At torney in Court or out of Court, and he ahoald not ahun him if he met him. Matters then went on pretty smooth ly for some time, Mr. Jordan reading and giving his ver sion of the testimony; remarking that when he got through, the District Attorney could read Ida notes and addres the Court. Mr. PATKatoit said that he should not address the Court agaia, as he could get no response, The Coubt managed to edge in the remark that it was obvious the CotM could say nothing, nor hear anything, when two were talking at the same time. Mr. Jobdan said that the District Attorney might domi neer in his own office, but he couldut in Court?ne might drive come poisons, but'he could not him, and he could not ride him, unless, by Heaven he walked over his dead body. After this flare up, the jury beard the minutes of the Court read and aome answers of Mr. Wilson, and went out again, apparently as wise and as much enlightened as when they came in.

Tha sales wcra large, and operator* appear disposed to reduce their aup. plies,, even at prasant prices. The money market ia steadily tightening and the rate of interest increasing ; the back* are contracting their loans, and movements in specie, in regulating balances, have within a few days pist been very active. We stated some time since that one cause of the depress ed atate of the stock market, was tho absence of outside speculators. The brokers of Wall street have felt severe ly the want ol those operators, and so long as they keep out of tlie streit, so long must the market remain heavy, and prices low. These occasional* operators bave been detered from entering the street, for the purpose ol mak ing speculations in stocks, on sccount of the repeated and ruinous losses recently made through the mascsu vring of some of the most desperate stock brokers of that vicinity. We have lately listened to the particulars of an operation made between a young merchant of this city and a stock Jabbing concern in Wall street, in the stock of the New Haven Canal Company. Tha party fleeced up on the occasion alluded to, was drawn into the operation by the representations ol another party, who had baeu a previous sufferer in transactions connected with the same brokers, t he extent to which stock operations are carried by many engaged in commercial purauits, is little dreamed of by those who closely adhere to a legi timate business. An expose of a few of the operation* of some of the lower order of stock brokers in Wall street, would do more to deter tfcoaa engaged in a regular busi ness, from becoming involved in the stock operations oi that vicinity than anything else. It ia possible some tran sactions particularly lich, i> the way ol financiering, may be made public very soon, ftom an official source Seve ral suits are now pending, the publication of which will discloto facta that will astonish even those somewhat ac quainted with the mysteries of Wall street.

TD6 cnanman of tbe Committee on Banka and Insu rance companies, in tbe Senateoi thii State, hu made a written report advene to the paaaage of thi bill to com pel! all the hank* in the State to redeem their note* at par tn tbe eitlea of New York or Albany. The report haa not been acted upon, but there ia very little ehance of the bill becoming a law thia aeaaion of the Legislature. The banki throughout the Weatern part of the State are oppos ed to tbe bill, and the banka of thia city are totally in different to it in any ahape. It 1a supposed that aome of the banka of tho river coontiea are In favor of the bill, and irf naing their influence to get it through the Legislature. We are convinced that the paaaage of any law, comptllinn the baLkt of thia State to redetm their iasuee at any point other than their banking houaea, or to make their bills par in thia city or in Albany, would tend to depreciate < he cur reocy otjihiac.ty and the State generally more than any thing,the Legislature could do It would give ovary bank located in otfcer Btat?a,in the vicinity of thia,an opportuni ty to put Into circulation any amount ci their iaauea, and they wonld be aought for by thoae u.ing depreciated paper. The amall per cent diaeount on the aafcty lund money of thia State, makca it an object for tboae making large weekly pay mint*, to exchange city money lor it, and by making thia aafety fund money par, those indiri duala would aeck billa of banka altaated out of the State, and five them a circulation, by pajiog them out to their lab ireia. A majority ot tke banka, and a m. j irity of the people are in favor of the ay stem aa it now exiata, and any *lt 'ratian woulJ derange and depredate the currency.
