Tho Oregon Negotiation. Our right to the "w hole or none,"' including war or peace, is the absorbing topic in every circle, und trie question, in its importance, makes itself felt iu ill quarters To illustrate the whole matter, and place the question, in its prewnt attitude, before cur readers, we commence, on the outside of this ddy'8 paper, the publication of the correspondence between Messrs. Calhoun and Pakenham, Arc., on the subject. ' Moke of the Panic ?Wall street is still in a bieze. The bulU cannot stand such a reaction much longer. On reference to the Money article in to-day's paper, it will be seen that the fancies are rapidly reaching their level. A lew more days like yester ony will suffice to tt.ap up some of the flats, and .am--dotki wi;! be waddling out of the street in scores. The war fever will last long enough to give the bears a rich harvest. The hardest must fend off. There mvst be n smash soon. ^VIIlTthcrc be\VaTl^\\ hat will Congresario? These are now the great questions of the day ? We have, perhaps, already sufficiently expressed o\-r views of the policy of .Mr Po k; a policy uilly PtartVintr &nd maenificent; astonishine. a? m ? 1 h':.< friends, a? his opponents. The question, therefore, which now engages the whole popular tnnd, is whether Congress will tust-in him, in the r which he recommend', in relation to ; ,otn foreign and domestic ^flairs, end whether it will lead to a war with England ! We perceive the public journals of the opposition parM\ ".'ready attacking Mr Polk, and very confi de. "predicting that Congress will not sustain his admiiii tration?that his party will not pass favor ably upon his measures?and that, even if the House of Representatives should sustain him, there will be opposition enough in the Senate to render its support nugatory. There may be something plausible in such a view of public affairs, and until the results are disclosed by th' action of Congress itself, during the present -"-sinn, we can only make an approximation to this r c ilt by calculation, and a brooding over'the event* and votes indicative of the tendency of tliii ;rs. The first movements of Congress, there for , will be watched with intense interest, and the firM votes .Meeting the various subjects in dispute, will be scrutinized with an equal care. We already find that, thus far, Mr. Polk has been completely triumphant in the House of Representa tives, both in the election of the Speaker and of the Primers.

It is very evident from this decision, as well its 'i. in the vote upon Speaker, that Mr Polk is not in " position of his predecessor, Mr. Tyler; he i? nut a President without h party; he has a strong id derided piirty in both houses and throughout t >e country, supporting him with minds stirred to : ,u bottom by the luf<- powerful document which he h i5 is-iu'd He stands in i different position from 1 predc:. -aor; he occupies the Mm? ground ' Sich 1 r* neral la?'kson formerly did The only therefore, of ?nv strength, his ad nriiEtration must be developed in the Senate, monj' those memliers who before "'ere his eujv purt-ts. The new opposition to Mi Polk antici . tea much from Ml. Calhoun, Gtn Cass, Mr. Ren* t".-, and other leaders, who aie either candidates or n* for the future honors of the republic.

In the mode of lo, iiug the committees of the Senate, and deciding i he minor officer* of that body, developments have b?en made connected witli some ol those lead era, pointing decidedly to a want of harmony among t'ie democratic Senators, and their determination not to adhere to the caucus system, so called, in connection with the administration. Mr. Benton and three other Senators voted with the whig*, against girinp the power of appointing the commit ters to the \rice President. This dcleated the demo cratic pcrty in the Se.nte, a-j?i arrested its action for once on tha; point. Indeed, it is understood that Mr. Beaton took strong gtound ugair?t the cnucus system, and effirtned positively. "/ shell not abide by it, fsir. I wout ubitit l*y it. Sir." Gtju. C?88 vo ted with the administration on the question cf the appointment of the comtii'tteer, but Mr. Calhoun is stiil ahf-ent. As wuu us the Senate is lull, we may see further trouble, and an increase of difficulties of this description. Vet it may be thought a doubtful point, whether these distinguished statesmen in the Senate, will venture upon any isolated or positive movement against Mr. Polk, in reference to the great measures which have thrown him before the country. They may oppose his nominations, cut otr the htads of collectors, and perpetrate other small work, but it will be dangerous lor even Mr. Benton, Mr. Cal houn, or General Cass, to present any opposition to Mr. Polk's great measures, or to organise rliqucs looking towards the future. The words and votes of tht-Be great men in the Senate will be watched with the deei>est interest, beyond others, becanse then the questions we have put will be solved. Thus far our opinion is, that the President will command a positive mnjority in the House, and in the Senate also, upon ail his important measures re luting to Oregou, Texas, Mexico, and the Indepen dent Treasury. When such a large and sweeping majority in the House could swallow Ritchie A: Ht iss, whose journal, during the last summer, has : exhibited more weakness, and less dignity, than any other organ ever did, we may expect they will not fastidiously refuse their votes to those measures which are popular?and eminently so?among the great masses of the country Great Theatrical and Musical Revival.? Within a couple of weeks past, there has been some thing of a decline in the theatrical and musical ex citement, which had pervaded all clashes of the com munity at the tune when the Keans were playing their former engagement at the Park, and Leopold de Meyer, T?mpleton and Ole Bull were delighting the ears of the city with their sweet and |>owerful music. The decline, at the Park, was probably owing to the inefficiency of the trottpt who were associated with Miss Delcy. But the return ol the Keans to the Park, has imparted a new lite to the play-goiug comniuuity, aud stimulated the mana gers of the other Theatres to extra exertions for the satisfaction ol their patrons, excepting at the "cheap and nasty" theatres, which are still dealing out to the newsboys, who stray away from home, small doses of blood, fury and nonsense. At the Park, the purely classical, and richly beau tiful tragedy ol "Ion" was presented,on Monday eve nine, with Mrs. Kean as the hero, (or heroine, which 1) and Mr. Charles Kean as the King. Ihe house was crowded to its fullest capacity. There were probably between eighteen hundred and tw o thousand jtersons in the house?the receipts from whom were nearly fifteen hundred dollars. At the Bowery, where a spirit of just emulation had influ enced the enterprising manager to produce the same plav, with the Btrong cast of Mrs. Shaw and Mr. Scott as Ion and Adrastup. there were about thirty two hundred persons. Th" receipts from these must have been over one thousand dollars. In addition to the success of the pure drama, we find the Ger man opera, which was commenced on Monday eve ning, at Palmo's, patronised to an extent which ex ceeded the most sanguine hopes and expectations that had been entertained with regard to itssuccess. There were about seven hundred persons in the house, from whom were probably received between seven and nine hundred dollars. Here, then, we have, at the three principal thea tre*, a receipt, in one single night, of over three thousand dollars. At the minor theatres, and other places of amusement, where farce, folly, dirt, subli mity and horsemanship are all mixed up together, probably a thousand more were received, exhibiting an amount of over four thousand dollars, paid for theatrical amusement in one evening in New York This state of things exhibits a sudden revival of the legitimate drama and the legitimate opera, and speaks well for the discrimination of the New York ers, who always winnow the chatf trom the whett, and patronise true genius, either in the author or the artist. The City Party.?There is now no doubt but previous to the municipal election ot next spring, a party under the above name will not only have an organization, but a very strong prospect of success. The independent men of all parties are beginning to see that the only object of a municipal government should be the proper regulation of city aflairs. We have shown, over and over ai;ain, that all the exist ing parties have failed to attain this most desirable object. We tried the whig party, and they failed ? we tried the native party, and they failed?and we have tried the democratic party, and they have made the worst failure of all. It is not necessary to reca pitulate the many abuses of our present city govern ment?they are ho apparent, that every man with his eyes open, sees them plainly. Now, why have all these diiferent.parties failed ! With proper attention on the.partof the Corporation, and a well arranged system, even the government ot a city like New York, is not the most difficult thing in [the world. Why, then, have the parties failed'! From the very tact, that continuing in their old |?arty traces, they make the city government a mere goal for which they are running, and consider the glory of coming in winner, sufficient, and then the end is attained. The party has been successful, and so the people have been contented to wade through depths of mud?to grope their way in dark streets? to be run over by omnibuses?knocked down in the streets and robbed?and all for the glory of the party. Now, what connection huve principles ol national policy with our municipal ?llnirs'! Nothing, abso lutely nothing. Not a singh- one ol the great dis tinctive principles which separate the people o this country into parties, can be used in the govern mental affairs ol our city. Let men of every paity, then, unit.; for the attainment of the legitimate ob jects of city government. There will be no neces. say tor any strife, but all may labor harmoniously together, and our city may become what it is capa ble of becoming?the best regulated in the worid. Emigration to Oreoon.?The accounts recently received from this territory are very interesting ? Th?- present population of Americans in Oregon, ip now from six to seven thousand, and from the pre parations that are now in progress among our peo ple, in forming emigrating companies, there is no doubt but the imputation will be next year double, at least, what it is now. The discovery of the great Southern Pans in the Rocky Mountains, is destined to produce a change in the commercial current ol the whole world, and will, in due time, have the same effect as the disco very of 'he passage bv the Cape ol Good Hope to In dia had on the commerce ol Furope By a line of steamers from Oregon ><? Cant*n, news front China could be received via the " Great Pass," in one-halt the time that it takes now The eye is daisied when viewing the prospect of ,he greatness which these States are destined to ar rive at.

Tlia fashionable I season has opened with several ball* and celebrations ot auniTertaries by various benevolent aocietie*. Un next Thursday evening, the Thistle Benevolent Association ball will take place at Castle Garden. Here bonnie lad* and comely lasses will meet and trip it mer rily on the light fantastic toe, to the spirit Stirling sound of the Scottish bagpipes, while some "charming young Jessie," with hor admiring swain, stray round the gal lery .whispeting "sott nonsense,'' and making love in true Scottish ityle. The Tailors' Benevolent Society gave their sixteenth annual ball at Tammany Hall, on Monday night. They not only proved that a tailor was more than a ninth part of a man but that they could produce as fair specimens of womankind, as any wandering young Adam could possibly desire to gaze on. Paiker'* Assembly Ball came otf last evening in tho Bowery, and was well attended by the most charming dnmsols of that part of Gotham. Gaiety, mirth and fun were the order of the night. The Montgomery Guards give 'heir annual ball at Niblo's Saloon, on the lath imt. Here all the young re prescntativei of "tho first gem of the sea," will assemble with their sweethearts, anu probably forget in the fasci nation* of he dance, the "repale" association and the "rint" which they owe. The Israelites also give a grand ball at Niblo's Saloon, on tho 16th. The lovely auJ bewitching daughter* ol' Judah will heie be seen coquetting with christian beaux, and darting passionate glances from their large, soft black eves. This will be a very rechrrchi affair? though an old c!o" dealer or two may possibly seek to mingle with the throng. The Ironsides Club, composed of the hard fwted, hard fighting and indomitable sons of the demoeracie, give their annual ball at Old Tammany, on the 18th instant They will undoubtedly attempt to rival in splendor, &tc., their celebrated rivals, the far famed Empire Club The annual toiret of the Highland Guard come* ort at Niblo's on the 19th. Here all the gentlomen who scorn to wsar breeches, with many fair daughters of Caledo nia, will congregate,and alter partaking a glorious Scotch repast, conclude tho evening with a grand reel to the sound of the bagpipes. The Manhattan Kire Engine Company No. 8 give their annual bail ou Christmas evo at the Apollo Saloon. The room will be tastefully decorated with banners, etc., nnd the company will probably appear dressed in their tire costume. Tho Central Guard nlso give a ball ou tho '29th Dec. The Independence* Guard au annual hall at Niblo's j Saloon, Jan 1 j. The Fifth Company National Guard, an annual toirie on the 19th Jan , at Niblo's. and the Gulick Guard a grand toirit on the'21st of Jan., at the'ApoIlo. In the upper regions of Broadway, and particularly be tween the parallels of beautiful Bond street and 1,'nion squaie, great preparations nro also making for several | torin and dinner parties. The ladies of one side of the 49th degree are determined that their parties shall surpass in splendor and magnificence, the tmnbllgMot the other side. Much jealousy has in consequence, arison, and quite i a spirit ot rivalry has been engendered What will bo the consequence, it is impossible to say. We sincerely hope no accidents will happen, however?no war broak out? no "crockery or character* bo broken. There are also extiaordinary preparations going forward among the families of some distinguished and celebrated bankers, who have taken up their residence in this quarter. The financiers here spoken of, are not those gentlemen who live by cheating one another in Wall street, but the great operators of Park How, who, having become wealthy by their v> benevolent exertions to amuse the pub lic, have retired to enjoy the lruirs ol their labors, anil cultivate tho pleasures of refined society in the region aforesaid -where tho inhabitants are celebrated for their exclusivenes* and elegance. Krom these notes of preparation, we nre inclined to 1 lieve the fashionable season in this great metropolis will ovceed all former ones in brilliancy and expenditure.? The Wall street banks, the faro banks, have all declare heavy dividends - money is plenty-beauty refulgent? joung men numerous?onu tbo 'god of love on the 91 oit'f. MomroNisai.?It se*-ma that Mrs. Joe Smith, the amiable and lovely wile of the celebrated Mormon prophet, is not quite so tractable as was the wife of Manommed. Mrs. Smith has lately come out and ' declared that she is net a believer in the Mormon faith, and refuses to accompany the aaints to Cali fornia next spring. She prefers to remain where she is, in Nauvoo. It is understood that trie leader ot the Mormons, in their emigration to California i next Spring, where they intend to found an empire which will rival the United States, is to be a celebra ted gentleman from Flatbush, Long Island. Ah the territory inhabited by the Flathead Indians lies in the route to Oregon, when the Mormons arriv* there, will there not be a great meeting of flathcads! Awful! Mr. Walker's Famous Report. -This celebra ted report, which proposes a new system of tiaanc* ai.J currency in the United States, is the subject ot talk by all the small potato financiers about town> and particularly of those ol the Tribune. When all those puny nibblers get through, we shall take up the subject, and give our views upon it at some length. We were the first to discover Mr. Walk er's abilities, and he has proven himself to be wha1 we stated he was?one of the great men of the age. His report is certainly one of the best that was ever made toCongress. State Deiits and State Resources.?Judging from the messages of the Governors of the various indebted States, we perceive that there is not one of the delinquent States that is not able to meet the in terest on its debt; and there is not the slightest doubt, that in a lew years, every one ot these States will be in a condition to cancel every dollar it owes, if it be willing. Newspaper Meanness?The Washington AV tional Intelligencer has the effrontery to steal from our columns, and publish at length, the late impor tant news by the Cambria, which cost us a vast ^um of money to get exclusively, and that, too, without giving the slightest intimation that the New York Herald should have had credit for it.

Bowtry Th*at**.?We have seen this theatre crowd ed very often since it lias boen under tho direction of the present manager, Mr. Jackson, but that term will not op ply to the mighty throng we uw in it last evening. The theatre was perfectly "jammed" full, from pit to dome. The bill that attracted this mighty throng wa? " Ion, the Foundling of Argos," in which Mrs. Shaw sustained the part of Ion, and the applause sho received during tho performance attested sufficiently how her efforts were (appreciated. There can be no doubt that Mrs. Shaw is an accomplished actress, and few, we think, will dis pute it. Mrs. Shaw was ably sustained in the piece by Mr. Jno. R. Scott, as Adrastus. His acting, when stab, bod, was very effective. On the whole, the performances last evening were very creditable to the actors them. g lvei, and to the discrimination of tho popular manager To-night Mrs. Shaw takes hor benefit, and wo presume there will be another crowded house. Tkmplkiof'i Ouind Farewell Coxcirt.?The ex. traordiuary and unparalleled successes of Templeton? the brilliant receptions, and enthusiastic applause eve. rvwhere bestowed on the unrivalled efforts of the prince of tenors since his arrival in America, have only been eclipsed by his crowniug triumph on the occasion of his farewell concert at the Taberaaclo last evening. Never did a more fashionable, daitling and brilliant assem bluge congregate in New York, and uever did the Ta. bornacle resound with such frequent, rapturous, and well morited applause. The audience, numbering many thoulliids, embraced representatives of the various na tionsVhich have contributed so largoly to our metro polis population and which have served to Increase the siMndor and magnificence of the principal city of the New World. So universal is the popularity of Temple ton and so entirely free from all connexion with cliques or parties has been his career, that he has been welcom ed and cordially greeted by the whole people. Among the many lieautitul and sparkling gems of melody pre sented last night, that extraordinary and romantic com position?" Thro' the Forest, thro' tho Meadows, '?will long be remembered with unbounded pleasure nnd de light. If anything could display tho resources of I em pieton's superb voice, it is this scena. Originally writ ten lor a tenure Tobusfot it demands in its execution, tones which were never before found in a voice of that brilliant class of which Temploton is tho great represen tative. But mulgre this, and tho absence oi an orchestra, i there stood "the minstrel of a hundred voices" sum- | moning up, as with au onchanter's wand, ellects the most thrilling and unearthly. After this glo rious conception of the German school, we can not be surprised that Templeton, in London and Paris, should have been the reigning favorite and per sonal associate of the first German artistes?Keitzmger, Madame Schrooder Devrient, nndothera, who paticu larly complimented him on his execution of this scena. At the reouost of the audience, Templeton sung I love Her, how 1 love Her," with his usual taste and feeling. "Sally in our Alley," and tho hunting song of OH Towler," were enthusiastically encored. Alter that ex quisite and delicious marceau, the "Jolly Beggar," was sang, Mr. Templeton, with much graco and elegance, addressed the ui >Mice. He said? Tad .1 and Q< ntlrmen In compliance with custom, nd the diet-tcs of my own heart, I tender you my sin . icknowic igments :or vour munificent patronage.? my arrival hero, I confesa to you, that I felt some ..ut discouraged ; in} 1 wn l?ai und the apprehensions those I consulted, anticipated tor me but partial sue , if I confined myself to solo entertainments. He ting, however, on the experiment, with an abiding lidence in public judgment, your n bio city, the nmercial metropolis of tnis mighty Union, gaveiss a cordial and generous welcome, which at once bespoke for me tho kind and friendly feelings I have experienced in other towns and cities I have siiiee visited, and which bids me onward "in my cis-Atlantic tour. De assured, ladios and gentlemen, the recolloc ion of your generous sifiport will evor be cherished most ardontly and truly by'iue?my hope* have, ihdeed.beeu more than realized i ?my wishes more than gratified. Among the beautiful and scientific compositions of various nations which have had the honor of bringing before you, I am flattered to find that the more simple and artless lav* of our mother country have also received the seal of your cor dial approbation. ! leave you, ladies and gentlemen, for a few months -, and fiom tho kindlier.* 1 have already ex perienced sinte :nv arrival here. 1 hope to meet many good triend while I traverse this countiy?great not only in hor geographical extent, t ut great also in her pa tronage of the arts nnd sciences. On my return, in May or June next, I hope to have the honor of again appear jrg before you, when I propose to submit tor your ap proval enter'ainments founded on modern opera?t he genius and poetry of Byron, Campbell and .Moore, and one on tho romantic adventures of Prince Charles. The announcement was received with repeated rounds of applause, and several beautiful huqueis and wreaths ol (lowers were thrown by the fair hards f hi* lovely ad miiem on the stage. Mr. Teinpleton now sung the Star Spangled Banner with much taste and feeling, Jind the vast throng moved slowly trom the hall, expressing their delight and satistacfion Templeton gives a concert this evening in Brooklyn, which will, undoubtedly be well attended. He leaves for the South immediately to fulfil his engagements. On vroRio ok St. Paul.?This magnificent Oratorio, the chef d'liuvre of Mendelssohn, is perlormed for the second time, at the Taberuacle, on Thu sday evening ? The music is tru y sublime, and th-? instrumentation ex cellent. Mrs Valentine Mott, Mrs. t. Loder, Mr. Paige, and several distinguished artistes, have voluntee: eil to sustain the principal solo parts. A brilliant audience will undoubtedly assemble to witness the representation of St. Paul. Concert or Mows. Christian Hurkr.?A select audience of amateurs and dilttlanti assembled last night at Palmo's, to hear the last concert of Mons. Huber, previous to his departure South. The attendanco was very respectable. The talents of Mons. Iluber as a vio loncellist are of the highest order, and if he was not greeted by a much lerger audience, it was owing ratner to somo error in preliminary arrangements, and the ab of a due variety and proportion of other aid ; cer tainly not to the want of eminent skill and pewer in Mr. Huber. Many who heard him were disposed to rank him even above Ole Bull. He is certainly a great mas ter on the violoncello, but, it appears to us, the dif ference of the instruments renders the coinpari sou impossible to be made with any justice ? Mons. Huber was ably supported on the occasion by ? he other distinguished arlitlet, who contributed their nble assistance. Madame Otto and Herr Bouchor in Hoohr's duette from the " Jessinda,'' were delightful. The voice of Boucher seemed to be in better trim than on the preceding evening, when h i tang in the " Freis chuti," or perhaps not having so great a task before him and undergoing less exertion and fntigue. He snng witti better effect, and was lets emharrattc. As to Me. Oito the prima donna of the German opera, nothing seems capable of breaking her down ; her voice is of remarkable force ami compass. M. Oibert's ex Acution of the "lion Cur.," was pleasing; it was in truth, a delightful < hnmonnelte, and the audi ence highly enjoyed it. At liret, wn wero inclined to think his voice aud cxcoution too lachrymose ; he is an excellent musician, but his voice was feeble and gritty ? be appeared to be laboring under a chronic bronchitis. V et, the lively and amusing words of tho ? I gon Cure," and its lively air, put the audience in . good humor, and ho was rapturously encored. One could have fancied oneself on tho Boulovards of Taris, while listening to this song, so perfectly French was the mu-dc and the expression. The absence of Mm. Valen tine Mott, Jr., in Boston, was announced, and seemed to create some disappointment with many of the audience. The gem ol the evening, however, was the wonderful execution of Mons. Huber; his performance cannot be too highly spoken of; it is a master piece of ait. One would never thought it possible, that the huge fid lie could be made to speak so tunefully and sweetly. We wish Mons. Huher tho success lie deserves on his Southern tour.

A graduate of the Military Academy of this year, named Merrill, on his way to join the army, was standing on the deck of a propeller lyi-ig at the wharf, when one of the yards fell, striking his head and indicting a wound, of which he died thw same day.
