[From the Washington Union, Nov. 15.1 The New York Herald repeats the idle and silly suppo sition, which we have already exposed, as it first eman ated from a reckless correspondent of the Journal of Commerce. En passant, we may remark, that our own regular correspondent from New York, in this evening's Union, exposes this writor with gieat force, but with almost too much elaboration. We are tempted to with hold the criticism from our readers, though the writer seems to plume himself upon the composition which he has sent to us. We should, therefore, be sorry to disappoint him. The Herald repeats the idle story that Col. Benton is more or loss connected with the articles on Oregon. There is not a shadow of truth, nor even a plausibility, in the hypothesis. He has not written one line for the Union, nor furnished a solitary hint. We repeat, iu the most positive terms, that we are not ac quainted with Col. Benton's present position on this or any other political subject. We undertake to say, with equal frankness and explicitness, that there is as little truth in the other branch of the speculation, viz :? "It is now generally understood.that Mr.I'oik's adminis tration has abandoned all negotiations lor the present on the Oregon question, and that they stand in precisely the same position in regard to that polioy in which it was left by Mr. Calhoun, when he retired Irom the State De partment. There have been rumors and statements that a proposition was made to the Uritish minister to resume the negotiation! on the 49th degree of latitude; but they are generally denied and contradicted. The tone of the government organ, (we mean the Union,) in reference to this matter, <leveIo|>es, beyond all possibility ol doubt, the position of Mr. I'olk on that important question. We give in our paper to day auother great ana important ar ticle on this subject, which removes al) doubt, if any existed. The American government now claim the whole of the Oregon teriitory from the 4'id degree of la titude down to 64 degrees 40 minutes, against all other claimants of any kiuu whatever. Amongst the states men, aud politicians, and newspaper writers of the day, this bold and daring positiou assumed bv Mr. I'olk has been attributed to tne influence of Mr. foenton, Senator from Missouri, for the purpose of presenting a check to the progress of his great rival, Mr. Calhoun ,amcngst the popular masses ol the south and west, with whom Oie gon is supposed to be the prominent question. This idea seems plausible." "Plausible!". There is not the slightest truth, nor even plausibility, in the supposition. Come from whatever quarter it may, the insinuation is as idle as it is insidi ous. We undortake to say, upon the best authority,that : whatever course the President may take, will be dicta- j ted by his own sense of his public duties, and not by the influence of Col. Benton, or of any other man. They who attribute hia measures to any indirect influence, are ! entirely unacquainted with the character ol the man. The only influence which will oporate on Mr. I'olk,will j be the force of the principles which ho has professed, and of the pledges with ^hich he came into power. The country will liud thom inscribed rather in the resolu- I tions of the Baltimore Convention, than in the counsels of the Senator from Missouri, or even ol any member of ; the Cabinet. We repeat, that Mr. I'olk has " no future" before his ; eyes. Having been elevated to the summit of honor and , ambition by the voice of a free people, he has now no ' other ambition to satisfy, excopt to prove himself wor thy ol the confidence of his country, by discharging hia duties in good faith, in pursuance of hia principles, and to the best of his abilities. It is thus that lie will manl iest his gratitude to the people?thus he will discharge the duties of a patriot?thus contribute to his own hap- , piness while in office, and thus lay op stores ol delicious teminiscences, on which he may repose in the bosom of retirement He will not, of course, commit the ?gre- i gious error of mingling in the queition of the suc cession He will takn no mtn'i part?favor no man's aspiration sulfti no man in the adminis tration te i(?t? in the struggle? furor no man himself auJ o- - .?3 no man. Such ia the course which herosnes Mr Polk. and such is the course which he will paitue He will take no part with Col. Benton, or with an; other man, in such an opposition t j Mf. Cal houn - if, ludeed, ' el i>nton or any other man could be supposed te partirifxta in such an intrigue. It becomes Mr Polk to act upon more elevated principles?to look to his country, au1 n<n 10 mou?to recommend the mea sures which are best calculated to advance her prosper- , ity and herfflory, and nut to stoop to any of the intrigues of olttce. It t>ec<im?s him, especially, to carry out the great principle* uu>n which he was elected?to keep the great i>art> united, to whose union he is indebted for his own elevu'i'iu- to k*ep the bundle of arrows as firmly united together us ne possibly can, tu order that he mar preserve, tour >ear? hence, the succession of his great principles, and not ol men, firm anil unbroken. For the purpose ol preserving the uuity of the republican party, he must attend to the two great elements of union: 1st, The carrying out of the principles, which constitute , them as ene party, and which are so admirably ?ot forth iu the resolutions of the Baltimore conventionand ?idly, That he must treat all portion* of the party, and all their distinguished men, with justice, equality, and im- > partiality. Whence, then, this idle gossip of favoring one man at the expeuse of another ot preferring a citi zen of the West to a citizen of the South 1 An I much more, of becoming a catspaw in the hands of one, to "check" and to crush another I Such is nit the purpose nor the wish of Mr. l'olk. We firmly believe that these are his high purposes;?otherwise, we would say, with all respect, we would not at this time ol day be lound in Washington. Intelligence from Texas.?The steamer Cin cinnati hrrived at New Orleans on the 10th instant, from Aransas Bay. We have received by her a let ter from our corrres|>ondent at Corpus Christi. The Louisiana volunteers, sent out by General Gaines, have returned home in the Cincinnati. Corpus Chruti, Tbxas, Nov. 1. The reputation of the Hrrald will induce all reactors to look first into its columns for the earhest anit most im portant intelligence, in these exeitmg times. Has an ad^ vance movement been made?has a battle been fenS^t Ind a victory won, or defeat suffered, where else would our friends seek the particulars ' Although no such in^ t?lli*ence can yet be communicated, it is presumed that a ttone ral interest is folt in our affairs in the Southwest and that some curiosity will be manifested to hear direct froa> our army in the field. I may more properly say it wa? so presumed ; for on leaving the Un ted States. scores ot youthful tsasars and Napoleons flattered them selves that their destination was the spot towards which n Amirln eves were soon to be directed, in earnest at lrneth said they, are we to be schooled in all those difficulties and dangers of which, hitherto, many of us have onl v read, The march - the bivouac-the tented fiplil tho nassaic ot tivers?the attack the defence science we have theoretically studied, j-or many years our people have seen nothing deserying to be character-^ teed as war, and abating somewhat of fetrtnn totoMr nverv day aflnirs, it was supposed that they would give to the army of occupation much the same Ihe army of England, of Italy and Kgypt, excited in past itavs Ami we already fancied that on our triumphant march towards the ancient city, perhaps twrce fo y centuries" would look down upon us from ^?rtemplea an3 her mounds. Henceforth, it wouldbe.a.dthatthe conquest of Mexico was not achieved by Cortex, or its history written by Trescott or Robertson. Such were the anticipations.

He testified that on the 7th of April last, he delivered to Capt. Wilsey, of the barge Clinton, a package containing $10,000 in bills on the bank, in which he it employed ; also $9,397 of bills on the Bank of Poughkeepsie. The bills on the Merchants' Exchange Rank were $50's and $20's, bat could not recollect the denomination of the bills on the Poughkeepsie Bank. - The bill* on the Merchant*' Exchange Bank were new issues, and he could identity $-.2,600 of them by their num hers, he., also from the fact that they were made payable to a person named Barret. The bills which witnes* could thus identify were $50 bills and registered. Witnesa was igncfrint of numbers or letters of the bills on the Poughkeepsie Bank bill* ; witness has been a banker's clerk for about ten yenrs ; witness afterwards recollect ed that some of the bills tro the Bank of Poughkeepsie were $100 bills, aome $J0 bille, and $l's. The package was made up by witness ; the bills hail been collected | for about a week, charged to the Bank of Poughkeepsie, aoil labelled,previous to being delivered to Capt. Wilsey; , witness could not positively say if there were any $60 bills on that bank, but felt satisfied that there was a $'20 bill, and others of various denominations. The bills on the Poughkeepsie banks are received on deposit at all the banks of this city. Isaac O. Ouden, teller of the Phenix Bank, of this city, on being cdRed, testified, that on the 7th of April last, he delivered to Capt. Wilsey, of the barge Clinton, pack ages containing $14,700 in bills on the Farmers' and Ma nufactures' Bank of Pougheeepsie, but could not describe the precise denomination of those bills, some were $100 bills, and other* of less deaominations : witness put up some of the money in the packages, and tbe porter seal , ed those package*; witness counted all the money put up. Witness, in hi* cro**-examination, testified that he be lieved that there were $190'?, $50's and $00 bitls in the package delivered to Capt. Wilsey: but he did feel dis posed to swear that they were such bills, as he was con stantly making up such package*. He did not think he ' could identify any of the bills taken out of tbe package* referred to. Witness, after counting the money, he handed it to Mr. Jenkins, hi* assistant, to be enveloped, and after the bills were so enveloped, the porter sealed them and delivered them back to witness. ('apt. Jkromus Wilikt, of the barge Clinton, testified that he was the captain of the vessel which comes into 1 port at the foot of Murray street. The barge wa* laid up for repairs on the 13th of March last, the iron safe re maining in witness' office.

They were I directed to Mr. Benjamin. Witness also received two packages for Mr.North, cashier ofthe Poughkeepsie Bank, from the Merchants'Exchange Bank, and deposited the eight packages in the iron safe in the barge, which wit | uess locked, and placed the key in his money drawer, which was also locked. Witness, after remaining on board the vessel for about an hour, went ashore for tha purpose of collecting a bill,returning in about 15 minutes, and after attending to some business on board, again went ashore for about half an hour?when witness re turned to boat about Ave o'clock, he got the barge under way to go up the river. This was on the 7th of April.? Witness delivered one of the packages to the Cashier of the Poughkeepsie Bank,and arotherto the Cashier of the Farmers' and Manufacturers' Bank of Poughkeepse. Wit ne*s did not deliver the other package*, as on the morn ing of the 8th of April, witnes* discovered that they had been stolen. A young man, a confident of witness, came and asked for tbe key of the office, and intimated that witness had not delivered some of the package*.? The name of the young man referred to wa* Cory. At this stage of the trial, the District Attorney desir ed Honeyman, Miller and Davis, impleaded with Park j iuson, to be brought into Court, which wa* accordingly done, when the District Attorney proposed to ask Capt. Wilsey if he had seen these prisoners before. Mr. Griffiis objected to the question, as no conspi racy had been proven. The enquiry wa* ruled out by , the Court. Krbkrt Cory was then called to the stand?He depos ed that he was clerk to Messrs. Cory &. Co., of Pough keepsie, owners of the barge Clinton. Witness was on board the baige on the 7tn of April last: law Captain Wilsey come on board on that day, with a package, which he brought into tbe office; 1 had the key of the money drawer and the office in my possession; the key of the safe was usually kept in the money drawer: on the Captain going ashore, I locked the office door: while he was absent, I had occasion to leave the vessel for a short period; the windows of the office were properly secured; the spar deck of the vessel was considerably encumbered that day by freight; after the barge left the dock, witness retired to rest in a state room. On arri ving at Poughkeepsie, Mr. Hall came on board of the barge, and witness got the key of the money desk, also the Key of the safe: witness observed at the time that < the clerk of the other bank must have been and rot hi* package; witness then proceeded to find Capt Wilsey, and asked him if any person had tfeen for packages: ' Captain Wilsey replied that no one had been; 1 asked the Captain that question in consequence of finding only i two package*in the safe. Officer Biro, on being called, deposed that he arreated Parkinson in August last, in Barclay street, as he wa* leaving a boat that plies between this city and New Bninswick; witnes* found money upon him. [Officer Bird wa* about to describe the money taken from Par kinson, when Mr. Oriffi* rose and objected to a de scription of the money being given: before stating hi* objections, however, the Court took a recess until 6 o'clock.] KVKNIK<1 ICIIIOit. I Mr. Griffi* roae for the purpose of stating hi* objec i tiom to the admission of any testimony which should set forth the description of money found in the possession of Parkinson at the time of his arrest, inasmuch aa the pro secution had not proven the precise character of the pro | party stolen ; therefore the presumption in law was that no felony had been perpetrated, and that Parkinson was possessed of his property in right of his possession. Mr. Whitino contended that it was proper to show that money was found in the possession of the aocuaed of the same kind as had been stolen, and that the finding of sueh money under the existing circumstances, was pre sumptive evidence of his guilt. In support of this posi tion, Mr. cited authorities to show that a man coming out of a barn, and on being searched, corn or other property of the same kind as that contained in the premises, was found in his possession, it was presump tive evidence of his guilt; so also in the case of men em ployed to discbarge the cargo of a ship, consisting of sugar or other good*, and that in case sugar of the same description was found in the possession of the men so employed, although it could not be identified by the owner, it was still presumptive evidence of their guilt, anless the persons found in possession of such property could show how it came into their possession; and that in such as the present and other similar is incum bent on the accused parties to show how the property , came into their possession, and failing to do so, it is pre sumed that it was feloniously obtained; for instance, sup pose a person lost a certain ? um of monev, and that some time afterwards the loser meets with a $S, which he be lieves to be a portion of the lost property, and the pos ' sessor failing to show how he obtainea it, it i? presump 1 tive evidence that he feloniously became the possessor of the same. The District Attorney, Wm. M. Trice and Ogden Hoff man, Esq*., also advanced views of similar import. Mr. Uarrri* contended that the prosecution in the preaent case had not only failed to describe the property alleged to have been stolen, but were also unable to identify it. The objection* raised by the defence to the admissi bility of testimony on the part of the prosecution, in reference to a description or the money found in posses sion of the prisoner, was overruled by the Court. Officer Bibd accordingly proceeded with hi* testimony, as follows:-! searched Parkinson at the Upper Police Office, and found a pocket book upon him; it contained one $60 bill ou the Bank of Poughkeepsie, one $60 bill on the Farmers' and Manufacturers' Bank or Poughkeepsie, and one $ 10 bill on the Merchant*' Exchange Bank, of this city. Those now shown me are the same I took from the accused. Other money was found in his pos : session, consisting of bills, and gold and silver coin; the pocket book now shown, appears to be the one 1 found upon him; the pecket book and money that I teok from Parkinson, I handed to Justice Tavlor: I nest proceeded to Parkinson's house, in Woodbriege, N. J., which 1 also searched; I there met with a female who called herself Mts. Parkinson; on searching the house, I found in a bu reau one $60 bill ou the Bank of Potighkeepeie.ene $M? bill on the Farmer*' and Manufacturers' Bank of Poughkeep sie, one $10 bill on the Fulton Bank, one $ft bill oa the Merchants' Exc'ge Bank,one $10 bill on the Stat* B'k at N Brunswick, NJ,and 10 $10 bills on the b'k of Rahway, N. J.j I took the 10 $io bills to the Rahway Bank,and receiv ed for them the $100 bill on the Farmers' and Manufactu rera' Bank of Poughkeepsie, now shown. I made no further discoveries at Woodbridre, except ascertaining that other Poughkeepsie Bank bill* hart been exchanged, hut 1 did not suoceed in getting posa*ssion of any of them. I arrested Parkinson on tho 8th of August, and searched his premise* at Woodbridge the following day; ou the Monday following, I searched hi* shop in the rear of No i 18 William street; ho occupied it a* a looking glaia manufactory; there were two bed* in th? third story, and in one room I found aundry cooking uten nil*, fcc. On making a thorough search of the premiie*, I found $*J,336 76 concealed behind some panes of glass in a blind side window; there was a pocket book and a roll of hills enveloped in oiled silk and India robber cloth, also * tin canister; the envelopes now ahown me are the *ame that I found round the bill*; from their ap pearance at the time, I suspected that they had been buried, a* some sand and dirt adhered to them. Juatice Taylor sworn?1 am the magistrate who had charge of the case; the bills and articles now shown weie handed to me l>y the offioers who searched the premise* occupied by Parkinson; the total amoant of I'ough keopsie monev taken from the premise* of Parkinson, was $??!,OW.

Officer BinD recalled -The money fftund in the shop consisted of $1,107 in bills on the Farmer*' and Manufac turers' Bank of Poughkeepsie, $#36 in bill* on the Bank of Poughkeepsie, $W in hills of various denomination* on other banks, and ftlfl 76 in ailver coin, contained in a tin canister. There were $10 contained in a tin box. At thia atage of the proceedings, the Court adjourned until to-morrow morning.
