NEW YORK HERALD. lew 1 ork, .llomtny, Dec ilxr I, ifcl.Y Orrnti StfiMir., T 10 Cambria will be duo at Boston to morrow or next day, and if sho arrives at tbfe.proper time, and nothing alarming happens, a special express will be run to this oflV-e with her news. All claatea are looking anxiously Tor I jtor intelligence; that to come in the Cambria it likely to he of the highest importance. The H.'>er?U, which run aihore at Capo Race and put into St Johna, N F , left that port on the9th ult. for Liverpool. The injury to the ship is said to have been alight. 'i ;ic Britiania wili tail from Bostonto day. The special express which left thia city at three^uaiteri patt three o'clock yesterday afternoon, over the Lorg liland Rail Road, witli the mailt for the B., carried a large number of passengers, including Lord Metcalfe and suite, from i auaiU. The Greatness, Prosperity and Destiny of V>w York. New York is undoubtedly the most flourishing city ui ihe Loion?or in the world?and is still rapidly increasing in size and importance. Nothing astonishes a stranger so much as the continual bus Ue and business-like activity everywhere apparent In almost every street, munificent warehouses and splendid buildings are in progress of erection, at all seasons c i the year. The population is enormous. 4()C)7wK?U'r' /" "!e ,C CPn8US " counted to nearly -I k>,0U0; hut with its suburbs, it cannot be less than luilfa mi I,on-of these, 250,000 were probably born '"the cay and State-30,000 in New England ?^hn the Southern, Western and Middle States,' / j,000 hurope and other foreign countries. A very curious and singular state of society is here presented-?somewhat similar, however, to that ob served in Paris.^ The representatives of New Eng aru , or t e \ ankees," among us?the natives of ->ew i ork the comers from the great West?the Southerners, as well as the Scotch, Irish, English, T rench, Germans, Italians, etc., are formed into f-eparate and distinct coteries. Individuals com prised in these various divisions of human,ty, natu rally find ihcmselves attracted towards those whose bmh, nature, and prejudices are like their own. hus cliqmn are necessarily formed, and sectional, or national feelings kept alive for the promotion of peculiar interests. Notwithstanding this, however, the leading spirits of all parties amalgamate, and are united upon all questions of importance to the welfare of the city or the nation-although each dxque claims fee right to judge and act for itself. A ! great public opinion has been generated, grow ing out of the state of society which here ob tains, and controls the action of all parties This powerful conservative principle is the embodied I wisdom of the cotene,, who are finally compelled to obey its dictates. This is the peculiar and distinctive feature of so ciety in New 1 ork. No other city in this country possesses such a population-celebrated alike for its wisdom and virtue-its folly and philosophy. 'V7 l| StlUe ?' ,b'n?s 's apparent? il Ir1M!fcome the gri,nd cen,re from w hich all light i ad,alts. If a man of genius wishes celebrity he comes to New York. Here vocalists receive their diplomas, and artiitei of" all descrip tors must pass the ordeal of a New York audience before they can claim a position in their respective professions Distinguished authors publish their works here, and religious societies assemble every spring to celebrate their anniversaries. Politicians diplomat,, and divines, look to this great popular voice for its approval The President of the lotted states the members of the Cabinet, and he w o houses of Congress, court its favor. It is a well established truth, that in this country no one man can carry forward any great movement with out t.ie aid ol public opinion. It is the consoli dated wisdom ol the whole which produces pros perity, and crowns the efforts of genius with suc cess. The prosperity of this great city is owing to us peculiar population, which, as before remarked though divided into many classes, is united on all questions of vital importance. The population of New ^ ork is in fact a great Congress of nations eK however, another important feature in "ur society which exerts a vast influence. The newspaper press is highly conservative, and enters largely into the organization of the various c/imiet. the press has always been celebrated for the ability with which it is conducted, and the extraordinary in fluence. t everywhere exerts. The journals of other cities, though managed with skill, are of very little importance when compared with the journals of New \ ork. Many newspapers here, however, are the organs of the minor cliques, and advocate their peculiar views. But, though the editors of these journals seldom meet, and in most cases are entirely unacquainted with each other-though they qnarrel and fight about trifles, and insist upon the correct ness of their own opinions yet when a great move ment of importance to the welfare of the city or he nation is started by some leading spirits, th*y unite m pashing it forward in a spirit of harmony and good feeling. Occasionally, to be sure, one of hese gentlemen will get pugnacious, and being filled with conceit will defy tor a time this great public sentiment; but he soon learns good manners, and becoming docile, quietly submits to the popular will. has been clearly illustrated within a few months by the course of the party press in relation 'o many proposed city reforms and new questions of national policy. H ns New York is destined, at no distant ,*riod, to ri val init.i commerce, splendor, magnificence, wealth taste and refinement, the proudest and greatest among the cit.esof modern Europe. Wonderful has bet,n Progress-gigantic its strides ?,(TUB W1" b* final destiny. I, has not yet reached its culminating point, but is fast hastening towards it. The improvements which have taken place in the character and appearance of this great metropolis of the new world, within the last lew years, would astonish and amaze us, were time allowed tor reflection ; but change follows change in such quick and rapid succession-every day bringing some new wonder-that we cease to of w'hat has been done, in the ever vary ing e*ci*ment incident to our progressive state We seldom pause to look backward-we never re trace our stejtH but, with a firm reliance! in Pro? dence, and an assured conviction of success we look into the dim future with confidence, and m'arch onward to victory. There is a majesty m the silent Progress of popular opinion, among a free peopfe lV'rem:r a?'n,rat,on< commands*. tv?n,th,ng about us is changing. But the spirit which lingers around the tombs ot the fathers "? the revolution, has been transfused into the bo ;oiis of their sons ; and upon the foundations which hey have laid, a magnificent temple is rising, devo ted to Liberty and Genius. The morning is break ing in beauty and splendor. New York takes ihe lead in this glorions move "ltnt?her great thoroughfares teem with life and activity?the indomitable spirit and energy of a free i -ople in here manifested?Broadway, Nassau, Ful ?<>n, Wall, Pine, and Pearl street* are thronged with emntless multitudes, from the rising to the setting ?f the sun?nor does business cease till midnight.? The hum of voices, engaged in trade Hnd toil, is unceasing?the rattling car, transporting inerchan <i *>? and wares of all description*, is heard at every hour Magnificent and costly palaces? the abode of merchant princes?the white sails ot whose proud >, jofies glisten in every clime?have been, and are hi progress of erection, in the upper portion of the ? itV- Temples dedicated to the worship ot the Most Hiijh, are rising in justness and beauty of propor tion, to the heavens. All that luxury and wealth i !?nd to adorn and beautify, is freely lavished on m The immense warehouses of our merchants .. stored with the products of American skill and m/enuity, as well as the costly fabrics of other rimes. Competition?the life of trade?is so great, 11 i i,"'?Kls are sold at small profits, and thus iner < h . us, from all quarters of the Union, prefer New York to other cities, for the purchase of their goods. It ha singular fact, loo, that New York lias flourish ed anii grown great, without the aid ol a municipal government. We have, it is true, a Corporation? but their object seems to be to legislate for the bene" tit of themselves, and not for the good of the city. The only government we have, i8 the voice of pub lic opinion, and the newspaper press. Let us try to have another next spring. J uk Uscry Laws.?As the people of this Slate have, by an unequivocal decision through the ballot box, determined to have a convention to revine the Constitution, we would urge upon the convention taking up, at the earliest opportunity, the subject of t ie usury laws, as being one of the moat important questions that they can have before them. The pass ing of laws regulating the amount ot interest that a man shall reccive for the use of his capital, is an impertinent interference on the part of State, in ae private affairs of individuals, and is the fruitful source of a great amount of false swearing and ini quity, in our courts. If the State can interfere as a regulator between t.ie lender and borrower of money, and say that the lender shall receive seven per cent and no more in terest, it can on the game principle interfere between the merchant and the consumer, and say that the former shall not sell his goods at a greater advance from cost than a certain per centage, which it should deem an equivalent. Besides, the present usury laws are manifestly unjust. As the law now stands, a note which is usurious on its incipiency is void, not only in the hands of the person in whose favor it is drawn, but also void in the hands of a third party, notwith standing he may hive given the full face of it. The common law of this State, before the passage <>l the Kevised Statutes, made an usurious note void only in the hands of the person in whose favor it was drawn?this principle was incorporated into the Re vised statutes of 1830, and was the law until the year 1833, when the legislature, in the winter of that year, altered it and made it void in the hands of any person who afterwards should get possessed of it. This certainly is law, but not equity, in a com mercial community like ours, the carrying out of this principle is attended with a great deal of incon venience, and interrupts the course ot trade materi ally?it is customary in New York, for merchants to ' sell goods and receive negotiable notes in payment. As the law now is, the merchant, before parting with his property, must pursue the note through the dilferent ]>ersons from whom it hr s come to him to the fountain head, the drawer, and ascertain whe ther it is tainted with usury; he must do this, or run the risk of losing his property ; for when he comes to collect the note, he may find that it was usurious at first, and although he .vas not a party to it, the note is void in his hands and lie must loose his pro perty. This predeliction for the tinkering and med dling with atlairs of individuals should be put an end to, and capital, like every other species of pvo l>erty, should be allowed to regulate itself according to its value. Sometimes money, as at present, is not worth more than five per cent; at other times it may be worth ten, twenty, or perhaps forty. An individual having an opportunity ol invest ing .$10,000, or any other sum profitably, the loan of that sum is worth more to him than the common rate ot interest; and it being worth more, ' ',e con?equentlv is willing to pay more; but the sages of the legislature know his business better than he does himself, and direct that it is not worth I more than seven per cent, and in case of the lender i taking more, they threaten him with the loss of all. The usury laws, as they now stand on the statute book, are attend-d with no good effects; on the contrary, they merely impede the course of busi ness transactions, and are attended only with benefit ! to dishonest persons, who are glad of any pretence to avoid just and honorable debts; for no man of principle would object to paying a note, because he agreed to pay more interest than the law allowed. We would, therefore, urge upon the convention, the propriety ol taking up this subject at the earliest opportunity, tmd enher alter the l*w as it now stands, or which would be the better way, abolish it altogether Common Council -Both iwTs of the Common Council meet this evening, when it is expected that the policy of taxing non-residents, and prohibiting the storage of saltpetre in this city will be discussed in the Board of Aldermen. There will doubtless be a long debate in the same Board on the subject of the new $4 a day and roast beef city charter, the Board of Assistants at their last meeting having adopted some amendments to the bill, calculated to rob them of all their " honor and glory," besides the magisterial pickings, which at present fall to their lot. In the Board ot Assistants the report of the com mittee to whom was referred the petition of Bloom field, Bloodgood, and numerous property owners on the west side of the city, lor permission to lay down a railroad in Hudson street and the 8th ave nue, toj McCoomb's Dam, will, it is believed, be brought up for action. The movement in favor of dividing the 16th and some other wards, started at the last meeting will probably be carried in this Board, in Ihe meantime, measures of real importance are passed over. Mr. Dickens of Washington, Secretary or the Senate.?A few days ago, one of our Washing ton correspondents made some remarks, reflecting, in uncomplimentary terms, as to the position and po litical history of Mr. Dickens, Secretary of the Se nate. Had we seen these remarks before publica tion, we would have excluded them from our co 'umns. We kave known Mr. Dickens lor many years, ; and a more upright, competent, and honorable man, in every relation of life, does not exist. No doubt there are plenty of persons less competent, and many equal, who would like to get his place as Secretary of the Senate; but this is no reason why any injus tice fhould be done to a gentleman like Mr Dick ens, who has always maintained the character of an honorable und upright man in all his public and pri vate duties. Court of General Sessions.?The December term of this Court will commence at 11 o'clock this forenoon. Several cases of interest are expected to be tried during the present term; amongst which may be enumerated those of Smith, alias Honeyman, Miller,alias Cupid, and Davis,alias Collard, implead ed with Parkinson in robbing the barge Clinton of about <*34,000, in April last. There are also the trials of Madame Costello and Charles Mason for prodncing an abortion, and that of Mr. Trust for an alleged libel on L. C. Comstock; besides numerous others of less importance. Mail. Arrangements?The enterprise of the Post Office Department, in sending a special express to Boston with the mails for the Britannia, was a little unfortunate. It was contemplated to send the Somhern mail, due yesterday afternoon, by this express, und thus benefit the whole Southern ?om mercial community ; but neither the Southern mai' of yesterday, or that of the day before, arrived in time, and thousands of Inters, therefore, from New Orleans, Mobile, Charleston, &c. tec., will have to lay over till the next steamer, or go to-day in the packet ships. Election in New Hampshire?Another attempt was made on Saturday to elect a member to Con gress There were three or four candidates, in cluding Hale, a democratic anti-annexationiat. It is expected by some that he whs elected, because a great many whigs intended to vote for Itiui, on the principle that " half a loaf is better than no bread." Meetings of Legislatures ?To-day is an im portant one, in a legislative point ot view. Besides the meeting of Congress, the Legislatures of Vir ginia, Alabama, Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana and Illi nois convene All thr States have a good deal of interesting business to transact. John Ross, of the Cherokee nation, has been alaotad an honorary membsr of tha Pannaylvaoia Huto rical Bociaty Important News from thk Pacific.?We have received, by the way of Vera Cruz, intelligence from Oahu, Sandwich Wands, to the 5th of Septem ber, Honolulu to theYst of September, and Tahiti to the middle of August.* " The accounts from Tahiti state that H.ft 'M. ship Collingwood, Admiral Sir Geo. Seymour, had arrived there and saluted the French-Protectorate flag. This is rather singular, and seems to in dicate that the English, in order to carry some point in the Pacific, have concluded to recog nise and tolerate the French aggressions in that sea. It is to be borne in mind that Sir Geo. Seymour has command of tlie English fleet stationed on the North Pacific coast, and to operate on the shores of Oregon, if need be. It is to watch this fleet that Commodore Stockton has just been des patched, in the frigate Congress. The U. S. ship Portsmouth, Commander J. B. ; Montgomery, was at San Bias on the 18th ult , to sail same day for Mansanilla and Acapu'co- She left Oahu, Sandwich Islands, Sept. 5th, Monterey, California, Sept. 30th, and Mazatlan, Oct. 16th. She lost one man by his tailing from the fore-yard to the deck. Mr. Francis Johnson, bearer of despatches from U. S. Commission, Hawaii, was a passenger on board. The U S. S. Levant, Commander H. N. Page, was at Oahu on the 5th of September, to sail next day for California and west Coast of Mexico. The U. S. S. Savannah, Commodore Sloat, was daily expectad at Oahu. The U. S S.

Very Late- from Mexico.?The packet barque Eugenia, Captain Biscoe, arrived yesterday from Vera Cruz, whence slie sailed on the 5th instant. She brings no news of importance. Our corres pondent gives all the intelligence from the interior in his letter. All was quiet at Monterey, in California, on the 3<)th of September. A new Governor, with troops, was expected from Mexico, but it is doubtful wheth er the Government will send the force at present. The U. S. ship John Adams, Captain McCluney, was at V era Cruz on the 5th, to sail on the 8th. Vera Cruz, Nov. 6, 1845. Mexico at present is quiet, though there has lately been some tumultuous movement in Puebla, and a short time ago there was an alarm ol' revolution in Mexico during the night, which induced an immediate evacua tion of the theatre, but it appears that the alarm' was a false one. Much diversity of opinion exists on the subject of the Texas question ; some few opine that the Mexican gov ernment will not dare to acccde to the terms that the United States may propose, and that it is only trying to gain time, as its aoft'ers are in a most impoverished state, while the great number think the extreme penury o( the country will act as a sufficient inducement to sub mit to any terms that will prodHce funds enough to meet the actual most pressing exigencies. The country is in a most anomalous position; the go verntnent is central, though all the members of it are federalists; and it is presumed, indeed, fully expected, that u revolution is preparing for the beginning of the year,to upset the present system and establish federalism. The new tariff' is a little more favorable to commerce in some respects than the old one, but the greatest alter ation is still in contemplation, namely, to admit raw and manufactured cottons ot all descriptions, and to devote a part of the increase of the revenue towards the indem nification of the manufacturers. Baron Cyprey, after experiencing every attention from toe authorities, sailed on the 2d, in the British packet for Havana, where he waits instructions from his go vernment. The press is beginning to call the attention of the country to the nnequaf advantages which Yucatan enjoys over tbo other departments, but at the present moment it is not likely that the government, from its total absence of resources, will take any active steps in the matter, though no doubt there exists every inclina tion to put that department on an equal footing with tho rest. Business is dull, the goods for the lairs having gono forward ; money is extremely scarce and no conducta expccted for some time, consequently the exchango on the capital may be expected to reach a ruinous rate to those compelled to draw. Exchange on New York no minal; nothing to remit and therefore no takers. Religious Services at St. Petkrs.?Our report er has full notes ot the excellent sermon preached yesterday, at St. Peter's Church, in Barclay street, by the Very Rev. Dr. Power. We may give it to marrow. Theatricals.

A good plan fer the preservation o um b re lias, is to hare the owners name written on the inside with white paint in large letters. A few suite for petit larceny might also prove beneficial to the umbrella stealing community. Camphine.?We are informed that this article has lately risen some 50 per cent more in price than it aver was before ; and- the shop-keepers are loud in their com plaints. The only remedy they havo is, if the inanutac tureis combine to keep up the price to an unreasonablo amount, for them to establish a manufactory of it them selves, and drive the monopolists out of the market. A little competition would soon bring it from its present price of 6s. per gallon to 3s., at which sum, we are in formed, it can be made, and give a fair profit. Brooklyn City Iutt>lllgenc?. The Rev. Henry T. Cheever preached a doctrinal ser mon yesterday ufternoon in the vestry room of the church of the Pilgrims, Brooklyn. His text may bo found in the llth chapter of Job, 8th verse. This gen tleman advertised himtelf as a missionary returned Iroin the Sandwich Islands, where he has been for the pur pose of converting the inhabitants of thoso regions to his faith It is very strange that these returned mission aries seldom Beem willing to give the public an account ol the success they have met with in making conver sions. We know many persons who went from this city yesterday to hear Mr. Cheever relate hn missionary experience. They were disappointed, however, and abliged to listen to a dry doctrinal discourse. A Sabbath Pedi.ar, amp a SirrosEP Thi??\?Yes. terday afternoon, a tolerably well dressed and decent looking man, entered the bar-room of the rranklin House, and offered for sale a silver pencil case, which, ol course, on so sacred a day, was not purchased by any oae in that establishment. The fellow took good care, however, to make a profitable speculation, as he took a way from the premises two valuable umbrellas?one ot them the property of the much esteemed proprietor and publisher of a Brooklyn newspaper. Officer. Bird and Wright were-as soon as the theft became knowu-dc spatched in pursuit of the offender; but they did not suc ceed in finding him. An Imprisoned Vej.el.-U may be recollected that, a short tima ago, the schooner "Samuel P.Brown," ot Virginia, camo into oplli.ion with a Brookiiaven schoon er? tho consequence of which was very considerable in jury to both vessel.. The Southern craft was alleged to be in error, and a suit was commenced to recover dama ges thei efor; which resulted in the whole difficulty being submitted to the arbitration of referees mutually chosen by the parties litigant. The "Samuel P. Brown," being moored on the Brooklyn side of the river, wa. taken pos session of by the sheriff of King', county, who appointed Mr Abraham S. Wright a. hi. deputy, until the claim was satisfactorily adjusted. This was in a voir ?hort time accomplished, by an award being made in favor ot the plaintiffs for the sum of one thousand and eighty dollars. Repeal Meeting.?After the interesting proceedings which will attend the laying of the corner .tone of Freeman's Hall this afternoon, a Repeal Meeting will be held in one of the public rooms in that vicinity, at which it is expected a great number of person, will be present and many eloquent nddres.os delivered. Juny Duty.?The many gentlemen who will be sum moned as grand and petit juror, to attend tho Courts which will be opened, for the December ses.ion, thi. morning, in King, county, have a decided advantage over their neighbors in New York, who may be similar ly situated, as each individual upon whom such a requi sition may be made, and who are not exempt or excused from the duty, will receive a certain per diem compen sation for the .ei vice. and los. of time which be may de vote to the service of the State, in such capacity. It is a grievous wrong that resident* of tho metropolis, who are compulsorily placed in a like predicament, are not 1 equally well an I liberally provided for. Police Matters.?The city of Brooklyn was ye.ter day unu.ually quiet, and wa did not hear of any breach es of the peace which required tha appoarance or inter position of police magistrates or officers. At a late hour on Saturday night, however, two vagrants were arrested for improper conduct in the streets ; one of them being a well clad and good looking female, who was taken in to cu.tody by officer Piatt Powell; and the other a poor shirtless and forlorn looking wieteh who was plaeed by some humane citizens in charge of Mr. Pclletrau, keeper of the public cells. Sudden Dealii.?Yesterday morning,Mr. Oideon Kim berly Waring, a son of Henry Waring, Esq., one of the oldest and most wealthy inhabitants of Brooklyn, and brother of the Corporation Dounsellor, died very ?ud denly at hi. father's mansion in Fulton street. His re mains will be interred to morrow afternoon. The New Citv Hall.?It is not generally known in Brooklyn that the new City Hall, (upon which workmen will this morning commence operations,) will be in the centre of a triangular park or enclosure, the railings of which will take the place of the unsightly board fence which has so long surrounded the foundation stones that are now to be removed. L?arin? Attempt at Murbrr.?A few days ago, a daring attempt to murder a whole family was ; mn<le near the Shot Tower in Jefferson county. A Mr. Kennedy, who i* purchasing slaves, put up some day* previous at the home of an old man named Phillip* He hired a homo from Phillip*, and wa* looking over the country for ilave*. One day when he came back to Phillips houie, a youn^ man wa* there, who had Home time before been ompioyed by Mr Phillips to do some woik During the evening, Phillips asked Ken edy how lie hid succeeded in getting slaves, to., from which it is supposed that the young man heard that Kennedy was u slave-dealer, and suspected him to have money. When they went to bod, Kennedy and the yonng man weru put in ono bed, mid Mr. Phillips end ii is * Tic occupied the other bed?both bod* being in th<> same room. About an hour alter they had retired to bed, the young man got up, went out In the yard and got nn axe, with which he *truck Kennedy on the head, knocking him senseless. He then went and struck the old lady, Mis. Phillips, on the head also, and knocked her senseless. liaising the axe the third time to strike the old uian, he accidentally awoke; teeing the raised axe, he jumped up and leceived the blow in hi* side, tin, however, seized the young man, and after calling Kennedy eight or ten times to help him, Kennedy came to hH tenses, and leaped out of bed, and with the aid of a daughter of the old people's, they succeeded in securing the scoundrel, and he i* now lodged in jail? The olcilady is still in a critical state, but, it if thought, will recover. The villian's name is unknown.?Aftssnu Han, Nov. W.

[From the Porland Argus, Nor. 88.] Th? weather moderated yesterday morning, ud a ] (nit quantity of rain fall in the forenoon. About noon ' a strong gale commenced from South-east, which blew with great violence during the afternoon. Awning* m ere raut to shreds, and chimnies blown ('own at a puff'. A strong brick chimney, on the roof of the brick built' ing in Exchange street, in which ia our counting room, was taken off even with the roof, and the brick* hurled into the street, to the imminent danger ot the pedestrians there. A chimney was also blown from the rool of Jones It Hammond's store, near the head of Long wharf. The chimuey of Rufus Cash man's store, toot of Exchange streot, was llown down, and the balastrade of Wiuship Jt Paine's store was blown off. It muit hare boen very severe for vessels on our coast, but we trust that each found a shelter in some one of our numerous harbors.? Many et them came to anchor in our harbor and the roads below. At 6 P. M., it was " calm as a summer's morn." [From the Augusta (Me.) Age, Not. 83 ] A South-east storm set in yesterday morning with a heavy fall of rain. Towards noon the wind increased rapidly, and during the afternoon blew a perfect gale, the rain for the most part ot the time falling in torrents. We fear that serious disasters will occur at sea to the nu meroui vessels that have lately sailed for Southern porta. This large fall of rain will probably occasion another rise in the Kennebec,very little less than the recent great fre shet. Slating upon the roofs of buildings, and fences in every direction were made to yield to the lury of the wind. [From the Albany Atlas, Nov. 29.] We shall soon have a bridge of ice across the river, should the present weather continue. This morning the river was filled with floating ice, and the basin com pletely coated over. Flour in immense quantities is yet afloat, notwithstanding the enormous shipments to New York Jduring tho present week. What shall be done with It ? There is no room in the storehouses?even the docks will soon be incapable of holding more. Our towing companies are making up for low prices, and active competition which worked hard against them during a part of the summer. They now tow lleets of ca nal boats at thirty-five dollars a boat, to New York. Never was the Albany Basin so litorally crammed with boats. A person may walk over the bridge of boats tiom the dock to the pier; although the cargoes of dozens of them are daily discharged, still there appears to be no diminution. The great western channel keep* pouring in the produce. [From the Buffalo Advertiser, Nov. 28.J The weather during the week has presented decidedly a winte'ish aspect. We have had the only snow storms of the season, and the gronnd has been"iroron harder, much, than at any time during the fall. Navigation upon the lakes and upon the canal must soon be brought to a close. A vast amount of business has been transact ed during the last six weeks, which has swelled the re ceipts upon the public works of this State to an unpre cedented sum. We have almost sleighing now. The snow fell during yeJterday to the depth of a few inches or more, and many there were who were out with their cutters and bells, trying the experiment, at least. [From the Roohester Democrat, Nov. 27 ] About lour inches ol snow fell to day, and tho weather this evening is freezing cold. Under the present tem perature, navigation cannot remain open longer than to morrow. The boats are all seeking tn??ir western quar ters, and no clearances for flour or produce, have been issued at the Collector's office to-day. Nashville, Nov.91, 1845.

The stock market, during tho week just closed, has been comparatively quiet. Notwithstanding the im provement in quotation* for some of the railroad stocks, transactions have been limited, and a disposition to wait the movements of Congress has been very general ly exhibited. The public mind hits, within the pa*t month, experienced a very decided improTement in re lation to the effect of the l'resident's Message upon com mercial affairs generally, and upon stock operations in particular. A few weeks since, quite a panic was created in the stock market, by the impression that diffl" culties with Great Britain, in relation to the Oregon question, were sure of being produced by the tone of the Message and the action of Congress. It is now sup posed that a very great change has been made in the complexion of the Message, by the recent advices from Europe, in relatien to the tariff, which will moderate th language of the Executive regarding Oregon, and perhaps bring about a very important im provement in tue commercial affairs of both nations. In anticipation of a more speedy settle ment of this boundary question by Congress, negotia tions between the Secretary of State and the British Mi nister, have been suspended. The return of the pre sent Minister has been reported within the past day or two, and it has undoubtedly had some ef fect in political and financial circles, where the cir cumstances of hi* appointment were not known. Mr. Pakenham was sent to thi* country a* Minister at the commencement of the moTement hore in relation to the annexation of Texas. He was selected for the office, on account of his intimate acquaintance with Mexican affair*, and it wa? so considered by him. Upon hi* arrival here, he did not think of remaining more than six months, and all his arrangements since, have been made for a departure at any moment. He antici pate* ? recall at any time, but ha* not, as yet, receiTed an official summons to return. It is possible, that the action of Congress upon the Oregon queition, may re quire a resumption of negotiation; and in that ease, there is Tery little doubt but that a special minister will bs sent out for that purpose, and the present minister recall, ed. Should n resolution, giving the required notioe for the acessation of the mutual occupancy ef the Oregon terrl tory pass both hout.es of Congress, and reoetae the sanc tion of the President, actiTe negotiation* must be imme* diately resumed and some arrangements made, or boun dary agreed upon, within the year stipulated. Unless some understanding is arrived at between thu two go vernments by or before the expiration of the neceasary notioe, difficulties must grow out of the question If we pass a resolution that our claim to the A4 40. is indisputa' hie, and that we no longer agree to a mutual occupancy below that line, we must, as soon as we can do so, consistent with existing treaties, take possession, unless some mutual agreement is made in the meantime be tweon the two governments. A movement of this nature in Congre**, would briug the matter to a crisis v*ry soon, and that is what we anxiously look for, it Is full time, so long as the question lias been agitated, for it to he settled; ar.d we are incllnod to belieTe that a con* summation so deToutly to ho wished, will soon be real ised. Subjects of so much importance cannot, in this age, be long agitated without reaching a crisi* that soon
