Our foreign exchanges are in a very strange condition, and the high rates ruling for bill* on London, is the most extraordinary feature of the whole. With a balance in our favor on our foreign trade, and very limited ship ments of specie, the quotation* range juit below a specie point, and the smallest demand runs them up to a specie ?tandard. A comparison of quotations current now with those ruling last year at this time, cannot be considered a fair criterion, as our import* wero then larger, and our exports, from the country at large, had been compara. tiveiy limited. So far a* our foreign trade is concerned sterling exchange should range much lower than ruling rates, but when we take into consideration the fact that we have been iinportiug our own State stocks, and have qeen remitting dividends, amounting to more than a million of dollars within the last six months, it accounts at once for the high premiums. It wllj be seen, therefore, that the falling ott in the importation of merchandise has been made up in the exportation of American State stocks. There is it great abundance of money in London, and the difficulty daily experienced in inverting capital in Oreat Britain is so great, that capi talists would be little disposed to part with a security , having the most remote probability of being a good di vidend paying stock ; buttheie undoubtedly have been many holders of American securities, whoso resources were rather limited, who having been overtaken with the railway excitement, and anxious to go into that specula, tion, have disposed of their State stocks, and inverted every dollar in some railway company. Stocks forced into the market, on the other side, in this way, have been remitted to this couutry for sale and immediate returns. We have no doubt but that many of the parties making this change in their investments, will regret having done so, and will eventually find that oven the stocks of de* linquent States, are much better than fictitious tailway shares, and will pay a dividend much sooner than an imaginary ntock company. The demand for foreign exchange has opened quite active, and the rai.es continue firm and pretty well ad vanced. Sterling bills we quote at 10 a 10} per cent pro minm. The demand is confined principally to bills on London. There is very little doing on othei points. We annex a comparative table, showing the quotations for every month during the past year.

The quotations now current are equal to about 78} per cent dividend on. Within a few days past this stock has sold at 73 per cent, equal to at least to 80j per cent dividend on. This ia fall high enough for a stock of this kind, as it cannot be considered more than a four and three quarter per cent stock, the laws of Pennsylva nia requiring the payment ef a tax of one quarter per cent on all stock investments. Ohio State fives have lately sold at 86 a 89 per cent. Tl.ecicdit of Pennsylva. nia is undoubtedly permanently re-established, but so lon^ as there is any doubt about the payment of the in terest punctually and promptly, there must be a mate, ?ial difference in the market value of the stock, compared with the same per cent stocks of other States. Many holders of Pennsylvania stock have fears that the reve nue has been anticipated too largely to meet the Au gust payment, and anticipate a relapse in February next These fears are groundless. Several of the laws provi ding revenue for the State, which passed the Legisla ture last winter, did not go into operation until aftor the 1st of August, and in consequence of this, it became ne cessary to anticipate the collection of some of the taxe" levied by these new laws. It was well known thut the former system of taxation was not sufficient to provide u revenue large enough to meet the expenditures of the government, and the last session ol the Legislature of that State, was principally devoted to improving, equali sing, and perfecting the system of taxation. The de facts in the method of valuing property, and the many abuses practiced under the old system, have been re formed, and laws perfected Increasing the rate ol taxation' and doing away with many of the complaints and much at the dissatisfedtion caused by a different rate of taxa tion in almost every county, for State purposes. This was one of the greatest reuses of the non-payment of State taxes, and now tha cause has been removrl, we do not look for any arrears from one year to another, for any great amount. The revenue law* of Pennsylvania are sufficient now to provide funds to meet the State ex* panditures punctually. These laws placo the burden of taxation so equally upon all classes, that no objections can be made to paying them, and the returns thus far confirm the anticipations of the most sanguine friends of redemption of Stale credit. Under tha Improved state of things a return to hones ty must produce in every part of the commonwealth the resources of tha people muet ba rapidly developed. ? There is no State in the Union so rich at present as Penn* sylvania, and this wealth will soon reduce the rate of taxation to a vary reasonable point. A* tha public im provements become productive, and tha revenue from these works increases, it relieves property generally from heavy taxes, and as the amount of taxable proper tjr ia the itate increases, tha rate of taxation uan he re' ta?ad. Tha debt ef Pennsylvania la immense, but It larger and bean mora heavily upon the people of that State now, than^t ever will again. Tha resumption of payment on the part of tha government, calls fort correiponding movement on the part of tha people, and we hare the strongest evidence that they will not be found wanting in that Stata pride so necessary to pre. serve the State credit. The interest on the debt of Michigan, due next Janua ry, will be promptly paid. Arrangements have been made with several large capitalists of this city, to pro* vide funds, nnd they will be forthcoming when wanted. Very little change has taken place in the financial condi" tion of the other delinquent States. The government ol Maryland have been making strenuous efforts to resume the paymeut of the interest on the public debt, and it is stated much progress has been made in extricating the finances from the confusion they were in, but we have no official report giving any statement in relation to the leceipts and expenditures, or how favorably the collec tion of taxes goes en.

[Correspondence of the Herald.l Washington, August 13, 184S. Mexico ? War ? "Drawing-Room" at the White House ? Temperancc Meetings, fyc fyc. fyc. A good cook is never at a loss for soup, though we can promise you but a thin dilution to-day. Our army and navy officers, our volunteer companies, aye, even our stalwart militia captains, are full of the prospective trophies, and diamond-hilted swords, and golden medals, and wooden legs, and scars, and scalps, and nil the pomp and circumstance of glo rious war. Mexico must fight ? there is no excuse ; and what is she to do 1 Grant letters of marque to pirates of all nations, in which event we shall have to hung up Spaniards, Mexicans, West Indians, Por tuguese, Danish, South Americans, English, Scotch, Irish, French, Neapolitans, Turks, Egyptians, Alge" rines, Canadians and Yankees, wherever we may catch thftn at their piratical work, or prove it upon them. Between privateering and piracy we confess that we cannot recognize a distinction greater than that between highway robbery and midnight burgla ry. Let 'em try it; and our word for it the admin istration will march a body of lO.CJO men straight ior Mexico, reducing it at once to a capitulation and a treaty. John Bull is not disposed to intermeddle, given us he is to have his finger in every pie of which war is the crust and the stuffing. He has had his fingers burnt by poking them into our pie, once or twice before ; ana as any undue collusions or im plications with Mexico against us, would lead to a suspension of the supplies of cotton to the mills of Manchester, the old chap will be apt to sweara little, stamp his gouty foot, scratch his head, ard look quietly on A brush appears to be inevitable ? there must, from present indications, be an explosion soon, of salt|ietre, or something even more com bustible. Mediation can alone si^ve the Mexicans; .md as Louis Philippe, in the matter of the twenty five millions of francs, apnraled to John Bull, and then paid the money at ilia recommendation, we think it would be the safest plan for Bustamente to to do the same, if [K)ssible. The war with Mexico is here all the talk ? messengers are looked for with news of hostilities commenced, and the operators at the Telegraph office are always on the spot. The subject has really t.nded in a great degree to add a little vitality to the monotory of Washington : and many of our little dealers in gloves, suspenders, ci gars, apples and root beer, are big with expectation of the President's otficial call ol an extra session, which, of course, is an absurdity now out of the question. At the "drawing room" (as the immortal John I ones felicitously styles it) of the President and Presidentess last evening, there was a very goodly ooinp.iny present. Secretary Wa'ker was there, md alongside of Gen. Scott, who was also there; tie cut a remarkably small figure upon the oilcloth ? the one being five feet, and delicate, the other half way between six and seven, and stout according. Mr. Bancroft with his intelligent phiz, short cropped hair, stiff whiskers, and angular cranium, was as sraceful as a counterleit French dancing master He paproached Mrs. Polk (the lady laughing in spite of herself at his labored approximation) with a bouquet of flowers in hiB hand (something with the look of a sun-flower in the centre of the bunch.) Ah! ma there , Madame, eomrne: vous, parte: vous T Al towez me, dt grande ronxolaciane, par la present* you de last rose of summare ? The ladv gracefully inclining her head, accepted with a smile the floral collection ot the Honorable Secretary, and as he slipped into the crowd, a voice might have been heard *otto voce, Mr. Bancroft is not a humbug, whatever Mr. Ritchie may say to the contrary. Tne voice was right. Mr. Bancroft is in real statesman-like substance, the ablet t man in the cabinet : his only imaginary drawback being the ab sence of a regular training as a politician. Judge Mason, acting Secretary of State, was present, (tne probable prospective succeseor ot Mr. Buchanan.) ? Mr. Cave Johnson, the active P. M. G., was there, but lie did not, from all that we can learn, sully th** hem of his democratic philactery by riding up in that 'ere Philadelphia thousand coach. The talented and elegant John Ross, chief of the [ Cherokee nation, and hjs pretty little Quaker wife, wre there ; Judge Shields, of the Land Office, Gen. M'Calla, successor to Major Lewis, as 2d Au ditor, Col. Reckless, of New Jersey, and other dis tinguished personages, did honor to themselves and the occasion. A leather winged bat, attracted by the light, came into the room, and flitted over the heads of the company during the evening. We re fer to Hon. Amos Kendall for a solution of this omen We believe a bat is considered a bird of evil forebodings, and if one gets among the compa ny at the White House on reception night, and makes himself at home among them, what is the signification ! what the solution of this uncalled for visitation 1 Its a bad sign, we are afraid, to say ihe lenst of it. The temperance people held n meeting on the Avenue opposite the market-house last evening. ? They had several seeches on the evils of rum, whiskey, and all alcholic stimuli, with a lot of songs ?iHupte i to the airs of "Meet me by moonlight lint" Tho*. tbou, ItipM in this bosom," " Long, long ago." "Aulti lang syne," and " Billy Barlow." In many of their choruses they sung with a loudness md a vigor which can only be surpassed at a Metho dist revival. Several old fetid bruisers, with the sick-headache, we are informed, signed the pledge to try the virtues of cold water internally, with a sa ponaceous admixture tor internal cleansing. We see that the Charleston Mercury is taking am ple care of Father Ritchie for the piesent. Washington, August 13, 1HI6. Summing up. -Mr. Buchanan, we hear, has returned. The bel ligerant a?t>ect of our afliurs with Mexico, doubtless, foreshortening his rusticities at Bedford Springs. VVe wonder if Father Ritchie is implicated in the Lake Superior copper and silver s|vculatious ! 'Tis id so, us a safeguard against the contingency, if it should oecur, of his defeat for the Houne printing ? The fact is, we are all going to make our fortunes in ?his copper business, particularly the Union com pany. We are apprised that a penny independent paper is to b?- started here next week, to be called the Dully Btt. under the control of Meagre. Slith, (late of the G lob* oflice) Gobright (late clerk of the Modi Monian office ) and Co. We have always thought that such an enterprise, with some capital (which these gentlemen have, besides very fair credit) ought to succeed in Washington. We believe they are capa ble ot giving the experiment a trial, which will set tle the question of tne capacity of the District to sup port a penny paper. Florida.? The Legislature of Florida, on the 22d ultimo, elected Wm Marvin a Circuit Judge of South Florida: J. H Bronton, of East Florida, Oee-ge 8. Hawkina, of weit Florida, and Thoi Baltic 11 of Middle Florida. The latter being the aenior judge in age, he is Chief Juitice of the Supreme Court. Jama* T.
