Tliis steamer is now in her sixteenth day, and may be expected every hour. Our exclusive express is ar' ranged to run during those periods, between this time and Monday morning, when no regular lines arc going. It the steamer should arrive to suit these arrangements we will be able to give our readers, in advance of all others, highly important intelligence on Oregon, Texas, cotton, trade, and also the opinions of the French gov. ?nunent and press on the attitude of England and the United States. Extbai will be immediately issued as soon as the o*ni arrives at this office. We are also in daily expectation of receiving important intelligence torn Mexico and Texas, on pcace or war full on* day In advance of the mall and all other papers^ provided our express arrangements ere not obstructed by the Pott Office officials at the South. Highly Important from Texas. ANNEXATION CERTAIN IT LAST. PROCLAMATION OF PRE81DKNT JONB8. Meeting of CongrcM in Jane.

Done at [ J the tow-n of Washington, this fifteenth day of April, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and forty-live, and of the Inde pendence of this Republic the Unth. Br the President^ Acting Secretary of State The Newspaper Organ at Washington. At length the newspaper organs of the government at Washington are tuned. We have received the new journal, issued by Ritchie and Heiss, called the Union, which is to be the principal leading, or parlor organ, of the present administration; and we must say it has surpassed our expectations, so far. Mr. Ritchie, although venerable in years, ?ho^'8 much fire, and almost the vigor of youth, and has commenced his career with the greatest promise, and in the finest possible tone imaginable. He will be the principal expounder to Mr. Polk during his Presidency; and, we have no doubt, he will give much more satisfaction to the democratic party throughout the country than his prede cessor, who was but a savage, after all, and is properly sent to grass for some years, like Nebu chadnezzer. We have no doubt, also, that Mr. Ritchie will receive the printing of the lowar house of Congress, after all the opposition which had been made to him; and, that he will have a paramount influence in the next House of Representatives?in fact, Mr. Polk, in car rying out these measures, despite of the oppoaittion he has received, has shown himself the "little Na poleon" of the great democratic party of th? United I States. He has shown more nerve, vigor, and reso lution in this business than we could believe was contained in any man of his inches and capacity. But one organ is not sufficient?the Conttitution is also to be continued at Washington, and occupies the position of organ No. 2,1 side by side with the Union. We have no doubt it will form the principal check upon the immediate organ of the Government. Well, the Union is the parlor, the breakfast table organ of the administration?the Constitution may be considered its philosophical and metaphysical ex pounder. The Constitution is a capital journal, well conducted; and we recommend it to the favor of all parties and philosophers. But these are not all the organs. There is some thing curious about the third?and Mr. Polk has his third organ, too. Two we have named; the third is the United Statu Journal, conducted by those pro found, wise, witty, and humorous persons?well known poets and philosophers?Professor Dow and Philosopher Fisk?two originals in every respect, who have reached the niches of Mount Parnassus al ready. The United States Journal is but another parlor organ, that is kept for a particular purpose? an after dinner organ. During the middle ages, every court and king, in addition to the courtiers and ministers ol State, kept a lool, with his cap and bells; and whenever the court had nothing to do, it called uj>on the fool, with his cap and bells, to afford them some amusement. Such is the position ot the United States Journal?it occupies the rank of court fool amongst the organs at Washington, \etit is full of wit and poetry,and something that will insure it to be supported by the pickings of the kitchen. i Thus it will be seen that Mr. Polk has now com pletely organized his newspaper department at \V asli ington, and that in making these reforms he has ex hibited] as much tact and nerve as Napoleon did in ! managing the old hunkers of the French republic. To have it said that he could remove such a savage as Blair, against the will of General Jackson, lien ton, Van Buren, and the clique who opposed him in this reform, is saying a good deal for Mr. Polk. ^ e really believe that Mr. Polk is the most determined, and will make the most resolute little President, that has filled the Presidential chair for some time. He seems to have more hickory in his composition than Old Hickory?in fact, like the man in the play, "he is all muscle except his head, and that is aqua fortis." lie is truly a little Napoleon in the White I House. The State ok the Streets.?Considering the favorable weather for the last week or ten days, we can find no excuse for the deplorable state of the streets. We are overwhelmed with the accumu lated dust and filth of the last month, and we would suggest to the present rulers of the city, that they make one more [effort, and endeavor to leave at I least a clcan berth for their successors. I Convention of Colored Citizens.?We shall give to-morrow morning, a full and graphic report of tlie proceedings of the Convention of colored citi zens, held in this city during the past week, which will be found to contain some most interesting and extraordinary movements of diis class of our popu lation, bearing upon the contemplated State Con I vention. Interesting Trotting Match.?To-morrow will poui'' off one of the most interesting matches of the season, over the CentrevilJe track, between the con queror of the principal trotting animals in the coun try anil Americas. The great improvement that has taken place recently in the latter, makes his sup |)orters very sanguine, and in the able hands of "Gentleman George," much good ajmrt may be ex pected; for two better and abler trainers and rider* than George Spicer and D I?ry.?n it would be diffi cult to find. Thi*, together with the fine track ovei which it is to come off, where the grey lady 1m made her best time, will undoubtly make the match very attractive. Long Island Railroad.?Ca and after to-nior row (Monday) the fare to Boston on the above line will be reduced to #4. Morrmi nti of Travellers. The arrivals yesterday were really no few, that Instead of pursuing the usual intention of furnishing M epitome, we have to give nearly the whole upon the present occa ?ion.

Aesottatioti of American Otologist* and NitdralitU. New Have*. Thursday Morning, ) May 1,1W5. \ Professor Ohcstkr Dkivky, of Rochester, took the chair ni o'clock, and immedi ately called the meeting to order. The Secretary read the minutes of the kcniIuii of Wednesday after noon, which were adopted. Tho business committee reported, through I'ro l'essor Kogers, and offered u programme for the morning session, and recommended that the me morial addressed to the Secretary of the Navy, by a committee appointed for that purpose, should be first taken up. Professor Rogers then read the correspondence that had taken place with the Secretary of the Navy, in reference to litis memorial, mid also the document itself. Its object wan to induce the government to set on foot, under the direction of naval officers of the United States, a comprehensive series of obser vations on the geoloffy and natural history of the Atlantic and Pacific coasts of this count.ry, on the fluctuations of the gulph stream, its true course, depth, velocity and temperature, and variation of the compass. It intimated the alleged exigence of a large shoal on the Florida coast, of counter currents in the Atlantic, as well as one supposed to set in from the Chinese Sea to the Northern Pacific. It also strongly recommended a systematic course of obser vations on the formation of shoal?, corals, ww llusca, and all marine productions: on the altitud*. declina tion. right ascension, See., of the heavenly bodies; all these, and numerous other*, were mentioned in the memorial as fit subjects for the invest iffation of the able and scientific men employed in the nnVHl service of the country, whose servioes in this cause would greatly redound to the benefit of the country and of the world PBtiiDrsT.?\Vh?t orHtr will you take on this report? it is open for discussion. The report was adoptej, and, on motion of tho Secre tary', the committee was continued over till next year. The Prksidknt said that tho subject railed for any in formation that members acquainted with it could com municate. (A pause) If there are no remarks to be made, we will proceed to the busines* next in order, Mr. Secretary. Here are papers (taking them from the Secre tary) on the subject of drifts ; also, a paper on a chain of erratic rocks in Massachusetts. Mr. 8. Rkf.d read the paper on the erratic rocks?de tailed their course, their height, formation, and scenery, and ended by confessing his inability to account for the oiigin of those rocks. Prof. Hitchcock observed that he had accompanied Mr. Reed in his observations, mid could not account for their curious appearancos. Tho line, many miles leng, and but a few yards wide, presented an extraordinary ap pearance : and. on the theory of drift, it was strange the fragment* were not rounded, but quite angular. He an ticipated come develop cuts from the geological survey of Vermont. How coul I these boulders be transported 7 Water could not do it?it was incapable of strewing them along, over hills, for a course of forty m'les. Nor could icebergs do it. He w?< not committed to any particular theory, and, therefore, could freelv give any suggestion to I'rof. Roger;, or any other gentIcTr.an. Dr. Jackson said lie agreed with the view of Professor Hitchcock, as to the formation of crrntic rocks. They hail often seen chains of rocks and gravel presenting the appearance of a railroad embankment. At the Saulte St. Marie tjierc were found depositions of every kind of rock found on the shores of Lake Superior, both angular and rounded. Some of them wcro brought by causes now in action; but the most elevated were of a more ancient origin, and were formed when the Lake stood at a much higner level, as it certainly did at one time. When this country was covered with water, the water would bring great boulders from place to place; and, believing that the Ice islands of the Atlantic were capable of transport ing any mass of rock, he was disposed to regard the agency of masses of ice, in depositing these chains of er ratic rocks, as probable. The Puf.sidf.xt said that tho difficulty ofthis subject was the magnitude of these masses of rock. The chain of hills between Connecticut and Massachusetts arose be tween one thousand and fourteen hundred feet, and it was hard to suppose the transportation of these isolated masses of erratic rocks over this line. Dr. Barratt called the attention of Professor Hitch cock to immense boulders of a rounded form, and of a spe cies of yellow quartz, in the region of his observations. He would ask if there were any means of ascertaining the level of the Connecticut river 1.000 years ago. His attention hud been directed to the height of the Con necticut river, from the fact that the river Nile was now found to be 24 feet lower than it was 1,000 years ago. Professor Hitchcock said that the terraced valleys on the bordors of the Connecticut wa# the only thing to throw light on the subject. From all he know*there was no change in the lovol of thftt stream?at least within the memory of man. Dr. Jackson referred to a chasm through whioh the Merrimack flowed, and which led to the influence that its course was a thousand feet higher at a former period than now. In Grafton. Orango County, there were wells found on a high ridge, showing that water must have been flowing thcro at a period when perhaps tho level of the continent was very much lower than at present. Professor Silliman observed, in referenco to the drift theory, that he was uncommitted to any theory; he would observe that they were not accustomed to attribute enough importance to the agency of ice and water in transporting rocks. He was told by gentlemen that they had seen an ice island several miles in extent, and of im mense height. In the Antarctic ocean, a friend had coast ed along an ice island for soventy miles, and was unable to round it. Such enormous masses of floating ice would be adequate to transport all the rocks spoken of. and in view of this he thought they should attach more impor tance to there forces, although they might not in all cases be able to clearly explain their action. Mr. Dana said he was extremely happy to hear those opinions from Professor Silliman. In the Southern Ocean a friend of his had sailed a whole day along an ice island in a boat; it was forty miles long, and he was of opinion that the more thev knew of these islands, the more they | would be satisfied with the agency of ice in transporting j rocks, according to the views stated. Frequently, smaller masses of ice had been seen hearing masses or boulders, and they were not always to attribute the removal of I these boulders to the largest ico islands. Dr. 8. Hc?:d arose to explain some particulars, which he had omitted in relation to the position of the erratic rocks on which he had reported, in the Richmond valley, these boulders were found re = ;ing upon another elevation, forty feet high, showing that there must have been a power in action to form this elevation, previous to that which pro duced tho boulders. Professor Hitchcock was dubious on the successive passage of tides, or ocean waves in the same narrow track, for a distanco of forty miles, and sucJi a supposition was necessary to account for the detached position of Uie*e erratic rocks, without the agency of icebergs. Dr. 8. Reeu was pleased with the suggestion of the gentleman; he had given his views, not because he was perfectly satis lied with them, but as they were the best he found. Dr. Jackson made some further explanation as to the ac tion of ice islands in Lake Superior, and pointed out the curious fact of a portion of earth containing copper being found at Hiver, although there was no copper oro found on any spot on the borders of the lake, unless nt Isle Ro) al, 10 miles distant from the isolated, and evident ly transported mass alluded to. Professor Rqdokrs admired the assiduity evinced by the gentleman, in treating the subject. In rela tion |to the main point, the subject of drift rocks, ho w ould read a few remarks ot his own. (Reads a do scription of four different hypothesis.) All these theories presupposed ttic entire submergence of the continent nt a former period, lie had before challenged any member of the Society to prove that the level of tho continent whs ever more than Wtl foot lower than at present In the val lies of the Ohio and Misslsippi, there were no marine de posits, or remains to prove it. At Albsnv. in the ( ham plain valley, at West Point, and along nil tie northern rivers, there we.* found marine -hells in abundance, but in other parts this essential proof was wanting ; and he thought it was little uso to dwell upon these theories about drift rocks as a proof that t ie globe w is once sub merged, if they could no? prove the inferior Jcvel of the mountains at a former perio i. Before thcyspeculated upon the removal of rocks by i'-e. they must "first bring down the hills to the level of the ocean, w hen the ice could operate upon their masses. They worn aware that tho tide wave crossed over the tclobe twice in 24 hours ; thoio were, however, other waves Recently, having occa sion to examine volcanic action in the dttse of the earth quake of Lisbon, it wa' ascertained that the tide wnxo caused by volcanic action, was known to move with a volo'itv of.K) mile - an hour. I'n ier these circumstances, how simple was it to account for the theory of the rcrr v?l of roeks by thc=e immeiee earthquake billows. The difficulty of properly appreciating the force of them physical dynamics could only be surmounted by e\te idi lg tnoir ideas of the vastness of their force in a det rve commensurate with the resistance encountered. As to the angle in the direction of those drift rocks, it could be easily accounted for by the motion of two tide waves. Professor Silliman supposed that the gentleman whose eloquent remarks had been just listened to, would go as far as any other geologist, and admit that there was no occasion for bringing down the level of moun tains, for the time was when they were all submerged.? He saw no discrepancy between those who regard Ice and those who looked upon water ns the translating agent?the one thoory did not go so far as the other i.i appreciating the force of ice and water respectively, lie thought that the subject of drift, one of the most import ant in geology, was drawing to a crisis, and he coiTfesse 1 he saw no great diversity in tho essential nature of tho two views. Mr. Dana concurred in the views of Professor Silliman?nor would he deny that there was not enoug'i weight attached to the force of water as a physical nj ? namic. On motion of Mr. Rkkd, the subject was, for the pre ? sent, laid on the table. Mr. Rkhfield, Senr., read n report on fossil fisher, made by Mr. Rcdfield, Jr., by direction of the Sociotj, which was illustrated by a variety of specimens. - Whilst these were being arranged, Professor Sili.iman arose and said, if no arrangement w?s made for the following evening, he would be happy to see the members at his house ; and if any stranger wished to go, he would accompany them nt 8 the no*t morning to the top of the hill contiguous, whdnce could be teen the adjacent scenery, the geological (features of the region in tho vicinity of New Haven, which wa i rather celebseted. The friendly overtures of Professor Silllirmir. and elso that of Professor'Shepard, before alluded to, were ac cepted by the Society, who agrned to visit both thesi gentlemen at their residences on thl? and the following evening. Adjourned till half past 2 o'clock. ArTraNooN skssion. The first business done was the reading of a paper en titled " n review of chemical theories, by Mr. J. D Whitpley."

This sujK'rb and spacious building is now entirely finished, and the roup (Vail to the spectator, on en tering and gazing around, is one which cannot be at i all |Kirralle|ed by uny place of amusement in the IJni I ted States. The hand of an accurate and discrimi j nating taste, is every where upi>areiit and altogether I the establishment is one emimently worthy of the metropolis and o|>ens up for us a prospect of delight ful summer amusement, refreshing and gratifying in the extreme. The interior of the building,which we have alrea dy somewhat minutely described, has been finished with most exquisite taste and neatness. The iwintings in fresco, which ornament the front tiers, have been very beautifully executed, representing various views of the richest "Italian scenery." One of the most attractive decorations will be a splendid transparen cy which is about being placed over the main en trance, representing the great "Warrior of Free dom/' supported on either side by "Commerce nnd Justice" with the star spangled "Banner" trium phantly waving, emblematic of the protection it af fords to this antl the sister branches of "science and the arts." At either side of the Portcullis is an entrance to the great "Rotunda," and also winding staircase which ?ad to the great gallery, which is capable of holding, from eighteen hundred to two thousand persons ? Under this is a magnificent "promenade, so wide that ten or twelve |>ersons could wnlk nlirenst in it with the greatest comfort and convenience. In front of this promenade are several rows of seats, neatly covered with scarlet moreen, which would nold at the lowest calculation twelve hundred persons. Then comes the immense "area" which fronts the fonn tain and stage. This space contains upwards of twenty thousand square feet of yellow uine. On the right of the stage is the green room, witli sitting room attached, for the use of the |>erfonners ; every thing indeed, which can secure comfort nnd convenience ol both audience nnd performers, has been done, nnd the entire edifice has lieen so strongly constructed and so judiciously contrived, that almost the possibility of any casualty, has been precluded. On the 12th instant this magnificent theatre will be o|*ned to the public?the entertainments of the eve ning will consist of selections from the Italian opera, performed by Pico, Satiquirico, Valtellina, and An tognini. The orchestra will be double the strength of that ofatjy previous operatic corps, nnd a very full band of supernumeraries has been engaged. Altoge ther, what with the delicious notes of the Italian nightingales.; the u fairy-like enohahtment of the pro menade and gall?ries,destined scenes for manya story of " romance, and love, and passion the dreamy moonlight on the water; the evening breeze sighing amid the trees; our grand metropolitan theatre for undress Italian opera, is sure to be all the rnge.

CnjcrttT.?Mr. Philips, the highly accomplished und distinguished v oca list, gives his farewell concert at Niblo'* Saloon, on Tuesday evening, May ttth, previous to his return to Europe. <>u this occasion, he will sing many of his old songs and the following new pieces:? "Tut Uklli ok Nt? York.'' "Oh the Belli of New York float merry and l'rae, O'er the bright blue waters that roll from the sea. Here merry maid* dance, to the cymbal and lute, Or list to the strains of the soft plaintive flute, To the weary worn trav'ler, if such be hit lot, To tread on the soil of this gav, happy spot. His heart will feel light, and liijs soul will be free, As he hears the sweet bells floating over the sea. They tell of the glorious fights that have fled ; Can sing of the living?ana toll for the dead ; Can raise the loud laugh, or draw forth the deep sigh. And the breeze will re-echo its strain passing bv. They sing of our happiness j breuthe of our sighs, And waken a smile in the dullest of eves. On their tongue* dwell the airs of tne brave and the free, As they float o'er the waters, that roll from the sea. Oranii 8tena?"Niagara." RECITATIVE. Lend me to where those wild tumultuous waters roar, Where ev'ry echoing grove grows hoarse, Where the sun glistens on the warring spray, Where blithe birds carol forth their fearless lay; Where the dread deluge threatens still to reign And drown in mad'ning course the world again. ?Tis hear !

It would seem as if Ooi pour'd theo from his hollow hand, And hung his bow upon thine awful front, And spoke in that loud voice, which seem'd to him Who awelt in Patmos for his Savior's sake, ? The sound of many waters: And had bade thy flood to chronicle the ages back, And notch his centuries in the Ktcraal Rocks. ?mil'. AD AO 10. .

And yet, bold babbler, what art thou to Him Who drown'd the world and heap'd the waters Kar above the loftiest mountains?a light wave, That breaks, and whispers of its Maker's might. Grand Scena?" The Bear Hunt." The forest we enter sileutly and slow : Let not a leaf be turtied : soft, breathe low. Darker ; more gloomy, tne deep thicket grows ; Look for the track ! where the streamlet flows. Hush! hush! hush! 'twas a rustling noise. Steady, lads, steady; be silent my boys. Fire! see, what is that! an old Raccoon! Miss'd him! I guess lad, you fir'd too soon. Onward we bend; and the fern grows high ; We cannot be far off?a Bear must be nigh! Hark! hark! a growl; now each take his tree; Let the Old Woodman go forth now and seo. A Bear and her Cubs', she's up in her lair! Fire! you have hit her; again noys prepare; Hit ngain! now then she runs to the tree. Hit again! bravo! she flies now to thee. Another shot! down she goes! seize on your prey; And then on our shoulders we'll bear her away. So praise to the Woodman, whose feast we prepare, And whose mark kill'd the brute in her secret lair; And sing the old song, for the shot that is best, By our wood fires bright, in the far, far West.

We have no kind of ob jection to young gentlemen, and even ambitious young ladies, wasting their time in producing these pictured abortions?what we grumble at, is the weak ness they exhibit in exposing them to public gaze.
