Tne conflict between these opposing powers must, sooner or later, come on, whether on the ocean or on land. That it will come, is as certain as that the sun will use to-morrow ; and it may as well come next we-k, or next month, or next year, as next century The annexation of Texas was the first great move ment of the American people to spread, in a natural way, their principles, policy, and government uj>on his continent. rThi? measure has given the deepes* offence to the British and French Governments. But the position which the American Government his assumed in relation to the Oregon territory m mother and more important movement, an well a* u question ol territorial right; and as a matter of I rineiple nnd honor, it more eo e ven than the an. uetttiou 01 Texas. It is also probable that the pre ? ai nig belief that the United States hnve been ne gouitinsj for the possession of California, is another em in the catalogue of offences which the gigan t march of thin country has occasioned to Euro pe in monarch* and people. 11 ;n ? we may i>erceive that alt the prejudices of ?t age?, all tl e recollections of the antiquated days 1 . Europe, ire mixed up with the present excite merit ? f ambition and passion in ilie uiiited British and lrr<ml governments. They took a serious et.ind against the United States in relation to Texas, a id now they w II assume a more serious one in reference to Oregon and California?yet tliev du it cautiously. There is, indeed, very little intimation in the English journals ot th- probable deHtination of those tieets and armaments rjrep?nug in thai c 1 .try for the purpose of seine warlike demoustra t ion. But this silence is us much indicative of t ??, r obt 'ct as if they spoke out. Everything tells ot 1 movement warlike in its character, which m 11 .0 bf m ide against aoine nation II may be i n a few months. I! the diplomatic correspondence which lately oo< p.dce at Wdshington, between the functionaries of th i two sovernments, in reference to the Oregon territory, and the abrupt termination of that corres pondence (all of which must be before the Britnh lovernrneni), has had the effect of producing bo strong a feeling ia that Government, as to lead to r he organizing of a navai and military expedition ol mi-jrue magnitude in En^iarid?- what effect, ihen, will the President's Message produce when it ? j.ch "s that country' We may be prepared for ? ruat outburst of passion, beyond nil prudence, both London and Paris It may be that the first pur pose would be q breach of the public relation? oe t en the two countries. V/e knr. v from pood au t!u?eity th;it the d iy after the President's Mes ieac led New Ifork, de^paich's were it by Mr. I'akenliam. directed to the ee vn il squadrons 011 the American coast, from r -rth to south. This, in connection with t 'evrlopments and inie'ligencs reosirtd by the ?te ' - er, indicate nn unsettled and dangerous >nn el r'rnntgs* between th" two countries 1-1* u??t ?ii Th* gensrai purpose kept .a view, both by the French and English governments. is supposed to be plainly enough indicated in their conduct in relation to Cuba and Mexico, by which it appears that they have in view the object ot produc ing a change or revolution in the latter country, and of changing it from a republic to a monarchy. Th< r* ?aa be no dyiibf thir these great navul and military preparations in England nnd France. bare a replies tc som? great movfmcn: and oGensiye Je rnonstration agn.nst either the United Scutes or orher American nations We see what the agents ot ihose governciems are doing in Dueno# Ayres-, arjd the neighboring republics, and that the tenden cy of all their measures is to blot out tin: existence of those republican States. The existence of the free government of the United States 13 no doubt an eye-sore to the monarchies of Europe, and the pro gress We have made within the lust few years tins Lx-en looked at with a jealousy which may influence them to cast away prudence, and try the temper of the sword in preference to diplomacy. On all hands, and in all quarters, it is evident, bnili in Europe and America, that a terrible aud iearful crisis is at band. It becomes, therefore, the American government, in all tu branches?execu tive and legislative?to ponder well on the present position of things, and to t ike measures of precau tion and deliberation ; to go to Work at once, and to put the country id a posture of defence superior to the condition lu which it is at present The first step should be the creation of a great and pow erful steam navy ; and if a debt ot a hundred mil lions must be incurred the next tea years, to create u suitable arm-m.T.t, as well by land as sea, it would be well luid out. Our coon try is rich 111 men a id money, and must be placed in such a situation as to be able to negotiate with the weapons of war and the force of truth. Branch or rat Mint in New York ?We are giad to see that the Secretary of the Treasury, in his iate able report to Congress has suggested the pro priety ot the government establishing a bruaich ot tiie mint in the city of New York it would be desirable, in a great manv respects, that there should be a branch of the mint here. - Two-thirds of the whole revenue from customs is derived from this port, and there is an immense amount of foreign gold and silver coin brought by emigrants annually, and also imported by our mer chants, and instead of its being converted info Ame rican coin it lies idle in the vaults of our banks. Now, if we had a mint in New York, all this foreign coin would he immediately couverted into American coin, and be circulated in the ordinary channels of business, and give an impulse to trade. As it is, tnis foreign coin is deposited iu the banks, where it rem 11ns lor years, the owners preferring to take that course rather than run the rnk, or be at the expense, of transporting it to Philadelphia to be re-coined We hope the suggestion of the Secretary of the Treasury will be carried out by Congress. Panic in W ali. Street.?It will be seen, cu refer ring to the money article in this day's paper, fhit the brokers have experienced another panic. This is the w,,r panic, and the greatest excitement exists among the bulla. The bears are in high spirits, and lull of confidence. They are now in the ascendency, but how long they will remain there, no one can tell. The content between the two parties, so deeply interested in prices for fancy stocks, will be highly interesimg, as it is perfectly immaterial to the public generally, which comes otT victorious. The coun try will not be ruined this time. Express Over the Sound.?Our despatches brought by the steam ship Cambria, came over Long Hand Sound on Friday night, in ilie splendid steamer New Haven, Capt. Van Pelt. It was one of the wildest and most stormy nights of the season. Tuohe who were out that night?especially those in flie .i.'iorie Li and?represent it 113 being really terri [ - yej c,s; 1 \ itn Pelt salely, and, thertlore, ski!* fully navigated his steamer from Allyn'aPoint to Greenport. much to th?- gatification of all on board. We are indebted to ihe t kili ot Capt. Van Pelt, for the ultimate success of <?ur expre?.?. 1 hi Ati.antk 1 Rack?The packet ship Queen of the Wt st, Capt. Woodhouse, arrived last Friday, proved herself to be a remarkably fist sailer. She run a distance of forty-five miles, to the bar, in three hours and a half; and i?he made the passage over the Atlantic to Nnntuekef, in twenty-two days. This is an extraordinary passage at any season of the year. The Hospitals and Medical Schools of New Yokk ?The subject of the hospitals of New York is one which involves a great deal of consideration, though they appear to be thought quite a secondary affair by the city government; whereas, in truth, they are probably one of its most important branch es?is on tnem and their management an immense amount of money is annually spent, end this amount forms no inconsiderable part of the taxation to which our citizens are subjected. Some litt* action has litelyjeen taken by the Common Council in the regulation of the Bellevue and Blackwell'a Island hoopitals; but the fact 13, that these regulations, or any which they have 'ever adopted regarding them, are always more with a view to extend the area ot the political influence attached to them, than from any desire to place them on a more legitimate basis than they at pre sent occupy. .Now. all this is quite the reverse of what it ought to be. As the thing now stands the appointments of the medical attendants to these institutions are given to those political doctor who may have chanced to have worked hard for the party that happens to be in power; and, as a mat ter of course, when they are thus filled, the attention of the incumbent is more generally directed towards keeping himself in, and inakinghis office profitable, than to the more high and dignified object of en deavoring to advance the knowledge 01 science and managing things so that the hospitals should become not merely receptacles for paupers, but beyond thTt by the great Held which is laul open in them for the Observation of disease ,n all it- forms be the means of advancing the standard of medical knowledge m this country, where it has air, ady progressed so These should be the objects ..f ihose w,,o have the management of these p|hee*; but as long as thev re main mere political machine*, We are afraid -uch will never be the case; and we would -trongiy urge me medical profession ofthis city, 10 see if by taking some stand in this matter. ,-f cannot do* some? thing towards removing tbt present condition of aft.nrx. Now tint \>w York li ?m tiken the stand ili.it she ha* in medical education,this matter ought to be more closely looked into than ever, mid it only require* to thin further audition to the many advnntasjea ? ,it thiucity already possesses in thi? pauicnUr line, in order to make it <|uit?; equal to I'ttris in thi* r? ?.,H*(;t Now, our i?tudenf? after graduating, are coni l.riled to go abroad and learn Irorn the foreign echools what they have close at hand here, but which the loul spirit of political discord delmra them from en joying. It is, indeed, n humiliating thing, that in tin-, the largest city of the United States, where all the mean* and accessories ot a perfect medical edu cation are to be attained, that the action of a tew eontr mptible rliqmei of politicians should interfere m their development. Philadelphia has, of former years, been consider ed Hie h?Md-quarters of all that whs to be found good in m-dica1 induction; but since the estab lishment of the University here, the glory of that fNty has depar,eij, and students from all parts of the Union Hock to this city * Ceruinly, tney have good reason to do so, for here, fortunately, we have one large hospital whi?h is not un^er tne control of po liticians, besides thevariou-i dispensaries and pub lic diniqutt which are wnekly heid in the Colleges Ail this is wanting in Philadelphia, or, at all ev?nts, they have only just es'abiish?d their r.liniqut* this winter, and they are cut ofl entirely from all hos pital practice. The medical dejwrtment of the University has up wards of four hundred and futy students attending the lectures this winter, and tine, of itself, prove how the advantages ot New York are appreciated throughout th.; States New l*-t "the city fcovern jient, while thev ar>* niikini' any alterations in the regulations <>f these hospitals, make sneh on** ms will throw ihem n* n to the schools of medicine; they will thus confer a lasting benefit on the l'X P?y?r?., ihc commune y iageneral, and h!?o on those who ir? ili? uiifiirt'jiiate piti-nts ut thes- establish ments, being the m-ans ot malt vg New York What it undoubtedly coull then beiome? a city where ?

Among the mo?t popuUr individuals in Washing ton City, is Mr. Martin Reuehai:, who officiates Ts master of ceremonies at ihe central entrance to the W t.ite House.

Having served in t ie same capa city that he now fills, under the four last President's ?Jackson, Viin Buren, Harrison, and Tyler?he is. perhaps, as well known throughout the country as any other individual. He is better known than Mr Polk. When fatigued, after* long walk from the Capitol, in a broiling tun, often tike truuy a seat with Mr Renehan, for the purpose of hstt nin>? to tiis stories, and to his imitations of the late Conn sellor Phillips, of whose genius auj talent he is u warm admirer. Martin iimself is quite an or iter, he having delivered two or tiiree fourth of July ora tions in the City of Washington, in "fly time," as well as in hivjU party tune,.. Bur let us speak ol'liim "as one gentleman should* speak oi another gentle man, after an agreeable rubber at whist. Martin Renehan, then, is no mean or common man. He has noble blood in his vei us, and eiiou?h of it, too, or we are much mist-ken ; and. we nmv add, that he is un excellent judge of gastionomy ? He were informed, at Washington, that he was ri Viio Provlnce "f Lfinster, Ireland, Anno Doin 1812 ; consequently he is thirty three vean i age. He claims to be a lineal descendant of-he kings cf that province. If we remember rightly he is about five feet and eight inches high, has'iHit complexion blue eyes light brown hair, a good set of teeth, and is slightly pock marked. He always has a smile upon his countenance?a good natured remark for every one, especially the ladies?and it may be truly said of him, that lie would at any nine prefer to court the Muses than caress a colored lady which is not the case with every distinguished man m the District, of Columbia. He possesses a con descending disposition, and, what is the general fccr8UC ki y?'Jr, true Irial1 gentleman, he is Irank, hospitable, and sympathetic. To show his independence: of character, it is only uecesstry to aT-ViT he ret^neci his political op,niL^ aa a Jacksou man, under several administrations always speaking of the hero of New Orleans as he greatest man iliat ever lived, except the ever asting Daniel O Connell He classes Washington unong the saints. Of Mr. Van Buren and General Harrison, he always speaks m the most ilatteriix' ierms, while Mr. lyler comes in lor a irenerous share of his praise, as an old school republican, a straight-out \ lrginian, a warm-hearted man, of un ostentatious manners, and an ardent admirer of boiled bacon and cabbage. He also speaks in warm terms of praise of the members of the late Presi dent s family, especially Bob, whom he consid.'rs a well meaning young man, of intelligence anil en terpri-e, arid of great decision ol character. Of ih-> new wiie ol the late President, he is afraid to speak u h"j"ves>-'r almost to distraction?she *i 11 d'S'i'b' -d, so elegant in her manners and so kin' and hdy-hkc in h 11 her mov-mentfi 11,' sometimes foriteisthat lie has u wife at home, "when shaking of other ladies ; but this u ?, harmless fail nig |?eculiar to Ins countrymen, and one that wiM fscape censure among nil raiional men.
