Tim whit-? are in genera! itidu.trious, and the idea that they are mperior to the other classes, inclines them oftoii to contemn many who hold a certain rank in toci ety. This itilo ofl'ois honorable e*ce tion*. There are amongst u* instructed French and Knglish, who main toln with the Hajtiem intimate and profitable relation* for tho cauntt y. Generally the whiten arc hated by the exclusive mulatto 'S and the black). Ttia mnlaitoo* do not lore the blacks, but they Hatter them?they havo ruiDed tho countiy in flittoiing their prf-judicos. The black* deriro the supremacy denied them bv tho mulattoes. From theso dispute* reault a general confla gration, in which the mulattoes will be tho unhappy victims. In general the manner* and customs are easv. They am hospitable, generous, charitable, particularly the fe males?womanly weakness; but they are also slothful, indolent and carcless on the one ride, ami lnclinod to rotbery and assassination on the other; whilo moral and social virtues may ho found amongst sumo of them. These are what may be remarked umong tho llaytier.n It is very difficult to give a particular character of this people, composed as they are mostly of different nation*. The whites ate in general devoted to commorce. They are strangers to the country. Tho mulattoes are intelli gent; enligtitaned; cultivate with succosh the arts and science*; are distinguished in medicine, law, public em ployment. particularly those belonging to tho rising gen ii i M ion; but they are full of pride, of egotism, and of pre ju 'ic.es. Some blocks are AMinguished, but the mass is rude and in some manner savage. Although polygamy irevaila generally, one always sees i' amongst the jlncks. The Haytien* make li'^ht of roligion. Tho man are superatitlou*, and the enlightened portion only es teem it in relation to its outward forms. The Catholic religion is undervalued in Hayti, in consequence of the bad priests who have come there. The Protestant reli gion, particularly the Werieyun C. urch at Port au Prince, wt.ieh includes two free schools, by their rigid forms and ?ie conduct of its pastor*, aro in general re spect. Two Knglixh minister* govern it. Civilitstion is little advanced among us. I can say generally that the Ilaytiens ,are in the second age of ci vilixatlOu-tThe inhabitants of the highlands and the plains have preserved the savage manners and customs, lu the large towns we find the luxury and the manner* of Eu r >pe and Amcrica. French and EngUsh fashions predo minate. The rights and privileges of each race are nearly the same, except that the whites are a species of Parin, who linve lost the right of commerce; that the black is subject to manual labor, and that tho mulatto, whatever may be his effort to maintain himself in the position the climate and his education assign him, will end by the loss of all his rights anl all his privileges, anil will be come the victim of the vengeance and the ferocity of tho blacks. This, sir, is all I have to say to you of my country. The trut i w as due to you, and I have not deceived you. This country would net tie what it is, if t"e mulat o chiefs, who have been called to govein, had known how to rule it. Petion destroyed agriculture in parcelling nil the largp estates to render the blacks proprietors, but he neglected their education, moral and political. Uoyer, by his bad administration, has not known how to profit by the union of the East, and the recognition of our independence by France, nor to attract by immigra tion, as many foreigners a* possible to this rich and pro ductive soil, and could &r.gn>entour population and civ ilize tho country. A liberal constitution, embodying principle* favorable to emigration, to popular sovereign ty, creating a strong government ana organizing labor, would suit us best. But our reform has been a deception. 1 would be able to furnish you with interesting notes upon this countiy, if 1 was 'iot surprised byyourdepar tuie, but it will i*io me a great pleasure to answer any further questions you may address me. I am. sir, with great respect, Your obedient and humble servant, DR. JN. H. FRENEL. Jons Hooin, Ecq., St. Domingo. [Ftoni Port an Prince Fcuille du Commerce, Nov. 30.] The FeuilU ji t Commerce contains a long letter from T. F. Dorvela* Dorvul, dated November 20th, addressed to the members of the Abolition Society of the United States, in which the writer returns thanks to the Society for " tke brilliant favor ' accor.led him in decorating him with an honorary medal, as a homage for hi* concur rent with the Society, in its "gigantic and generous enterprise." The letter is filled with the usual florid language which characterizes such documents in general; and, in speaking of the United States, it is called " the land ot injustice." The Case of Mrs. Gov. Thomas for Divorce. ! ?W?.? give, in another column, the proceedings in ' the cuse of Mrs. Thomas, a daughter of Governor McDowell, of Virginia, sueing tor a divorce from her husband, Francis Thomas, late Governor ol Maryland. They are rather curious and interest ing. The libel suit agaiast Gov. Thomas, growing out of this Klfair, will shortly commence in Wash ington city. The evidence on both sides is looked for with a good deal of interest. Medical Revival in New York.?The new me dical tohool of New York (Doct.

It appears by this, that "the man with the white hat," and the French charge formed part of the Texas Ca binet. All will probably recollect the statements in the Journal of Commerce of this city, made when Dr. Smith was here, "by authority," contradicting what the annexed proves to be correct. These di plomatists are certainly the greatest liars the wotld ever saw. As wo intimated noma time since that wo could scarce ly beli ve that our President anil eis Cabinet had autho rized Dr. Smith to otter the propositions that there were made to Mexico and accepted by her, it may be proper /or us here to mention that we nave been informed by Dr. Smith, that these propositions were the subject of discinsion at a lull meeting of the Cabinet. The Presi dent, Dr. Smith, Secretary o( State, Col. Allen, Attorney Oenoiwl, Judge Ochiltree..Secretary of the Treasury, and Col Win. O. Cook were all present, and they unani mously agreed to those propositions. Captain Elliott arid Mr. S-aligny vare present, and urged that they should be agreed to by the Cabinet a* speedily a* possible In a f w hours after this Cabinet meeting, Captain Elliot was on his way to the city of Mexico to deliver them to Cuevus, and it is a singular fact that be me Major Donel ?on a few milns lrom Washington, with the olticial copy of the resolutions of Annexation passed by the American Congress. The news that these icsoliltions had passed the American Congress, and hud been signed by Presi dent Tyler, had reached Washington several days before this ( ubinet meeting.

Sunday, Dec. '41?ft 1*. in, The WHk just closed, has on the whole, been rutlier a quiet one, so far aa operation* in the stock market wero concerned. The money market continue* very tight, and the rate of intereat in the banks seven per cent, on the beat business paper olfered. In the street the rat?a vary from a half to one per cent per month. Quotations for many of the fancy rail road ttocki are much lower than they have been for many months, and notwithstand ing the very great reduction within the past two or three week*, aome of the heaviest brokers are ttill hammering down prices, and bringing all their force to bear down the market and produce , if potable, a further depression. Although there has been a decline in some of the fancy rail road stocks of fifteen and twenty par cent, they still raoge many por cent above their actual value as invest' ments, and until their real value is reached, there can be no real cause for complaint. It is the immcnso falling off that alarms spooulatorH, more than anything else, and those operator* who hold those stocks at the highest pi!? cos, havo caust* for feeling alarmed. Amidst all the depre ciation in prices, and the serious loues many must have experienced, we hear of no explosions, not even among tho street speculators. We can hardly account for this stato of things, as there are at all times a great number of operators hanging about the exchange, whoso means aro so limited, that the smallest losses would flatten mos* of them complett-ly out, unless the differences are set tled quietly, at tho best possible rates, and the amount unpaid abandoned as worthless. We have no doubt but that more than half of this class of brokers in the street have actually failed, nnd that those to whom they wero indebted, in the Khnpe of differences, accepted the first odor made, and allowed them to retain their tents at | the board, if they had nny, or to keep on in their busi ness as usual. In times like these, there is a general resort to com' promises, as the only way in which differencos can be i settled. A strict adherence to the rules of either ! board of brokers, would have reduced the mem | hers in each to a very small number. An | improvement in the money and stock markets, would ' relievo many of these brokers from the ditfl > culties under which thoy now labor, and sot them on | their pins again; at the same time, be of much benefit to those holding contracts approaching maturity. We annex a table, giving the quotations for stocks in this market for each day of the past week, and those cur rent at the close of the week previous. There has been considerable variation in some of the fancy rail road stocks, such a* Long Island and Norwich aud Worcester There has been an improvement in some of the fancies, suoh a* Stonington, Erie and Reading.

The o are a variety of causes for the depression exist in? in the stock merket, and these causes are likely to produce a further depreciation in the market value of many securities used for speculation in this and other ci. ties. The condition of the money market is the prime cause of the panic that has haJ such a serious effect upon stocks, and tho numerous things affecting the value aud volume of the currency are of a more per manent nature (ban many imagine. The banks have been compelled, Jn a measure, to adopt the course they have duriag the past veek been pur. I 8",n& Th* fr?'1 produced by the pMfcable passage | ol tho Sub-Treasury law, the large payments about be | ing made, on ac count of the State debts aivl State into rest, ami the probable demand for specie for remittan ces in payment of those to foreign holders, hare all ten I ded to a contraction on the part of the banks of this city particularly, which naturally restricted all operations , depending upon these institutions for facilities to con ! duct. The State of New York will pay, on the first of Janun ry, $2,362,536 of its debt then falling due, and the Bank of the Stato of Siutn Carolina will pay off $225,677 oi the debt ol thot State, making the sum of $2,688,212, in these two items alone; besides these,there is the interest on the stocks of the various cities and States, and of tho gen eral government, to be paid, and that held abroad to be j remitted, perhaps in spocie; and still further, tho anticipa 1 ted receipt of a largo amount of State stocks owned ^n Europe, for sale and for immediate remittance of the unds, in specie or prime bills of exchaugo, will re quire n large amount of money, most of which will be sent out of the country in some shape. All these things, both teal and imaginary, have had a very unfavor able influence upon the money and stock market, and it ! must be admitted that there are sufficient reasons to jus j tify the course pursued by the banks. No ono can just ly complain of tho contracted state of tho money market but every one must deprecate the fluctuating movements of those institutions. If the banks would pursue a more uniform course in all their operations, there would not be any cause for these great and sudden char.gea. They would be continually prepared for all kinds of times; in fact, there would not occur those causes for any contraction, if these institutions were conducted as they should be. The expansions in credits and in commercial affairs, they from time to time produce, derange tho cur rency and create an inflated, fictitious state of thirds, that requires the most rapid contraction to check before it is too late. One evil leads to another, and of two evila we should reject tho greatest. It would be much more profitable to all classes, if tho currency was maintained at a uniform value anl volume, than under the continual expansions and contractions that the banks so frequently inflict the commercial classes with. The banks of this city are particularly interested in those fluctuations ; being deeply invol ved in stock operations, purchasing at one time, and sell ing at another Tliey are as much interested iu the changes, they from time to time produce, as any indivi dual bull or bear in Wall street. There is no power strong enough to regulate theae chartered stock speculating companies, the nominal bu siness of which is banking, but the 8ub-Treasury. The Legislature of every State in the Union is every ses sion increasing tho number of banks, and the amount of capital, and we must look to the general government for the adoption of some meafure calculated to restrict the operations and issues of this swarm of money manu facturing monopolies. There is now very little dotibt but that the Sub-Trea sury bill will become a law sometime during the present session of Congress. Every interest of the country demands it, and the party in power will hardly dare re fuse it. This act is closely identified with the perma nent prosperity of th- country, and it guarantees ? pro gross in oil commercial matters, of a steu ly and tolid nature. Under its operations, there can be none of thoso minions reactions that now so frequently derange and destroy the prosperity thot may at any time exist, and tlie value of the currency will bo ultimately estnh.' lished upon a pure specie basis, and the volume regu lat<>i| by the amount 01 the precious metals afleat. The annual report of the president of the State Bank of Indiana has been made to the Legislature. An exten sion of five years of the privilege of issuing notes of loss denomination than $5, was asked a year ago from tho Legislature. Tho privilege, as previously granted, would expire in about a year from that time. It was, therefore, desired that the extension should be granted or refused by that Legislature, so that the bank and branch** might con Juct their bn*jnaHH accordingly. It is now claimed that the privilege, as originally confer red, is commensurate with the charter. What action tho Legislature will take in tho premises remains to be seen. The condition of the bank, 011 the 16th of November, ac cording to the report made to the Legislature of India m, Compared with previous reports, was as annexed:? State B*t? or [!>iniA?s. Spttie.

The latter is still to be acted upo.i. hi the'nieun time, what will the democratic opposition do 1 Washington, Dec. 27, 184S. Mitrelluntuus Observations on the Grtat Questions and Men of the Day. We despatched you, yesterday, a rather elaborate review of the portentous significancy of the Oregon controversy, in ita present aspects, and in its imme diate and remote results. Five words, to day, from Mr. Calhoun, in the Senate, h:ive killed the speech of Gen. CaSfe, and dissipated, well nigh, the cloud of war. Mr. Calhoun will stand out, we infer from these remarks, against all ill-judged irritation of old sores?he has 110 disposition to stop the cotton trade upon a point of honor already conceded.? I 'poii him will rest the responsibility of bringing us safely out of this difficulty, honorably out, quietly out, and entirely out?upon him will rest thisrespon sibility, and upon him will rest the after gratitude of both nations. The line of -19 will he the line, the bee line, from the Lake of the Woods to the shores of the Pacfic. Whatever we might have wished, ia respect of pvery inch of the soil, it is too long since August last, to ho|>e for it. Un another matter. We wish you to understand the secret of Mr. Levy's motion in the Senate, for uu inquiry upon the exj*di-ncy of negotiations with Spain, tor the cession of Cuba to the United States. England has long had her eye upon that little island of Cuba, ot seven hundred miles long. She has long bad a. tiankerini; ot that island ; and in *84--'5, she would have, but for ii protest against the transfer, cent over to Madrid for the natives. The object ol Mr. Levy, is not to institute negotiations now, nor as soon possible ; but it is simply to excite public attention to the subject; and particularly the atten* tion of the people ol Cuba. The object is to satisfy them, that when they are ready, we are quite ready to take them in. They will hear of this proposition of Mr. Levy, and they will think of it, and thus their minds will be prepared to turn in their sympathies to the United States. Cuba is the key of the Gulf, and the seal of the West India Wands. In the event of war*vith Great Britain, she would pounce upon it first thine, and as to tak ing it away Irom her, alter she shall nave planted her double cross upon it, it is a thing easier said than done Let us, therefore, keep piece with England a few years longer, and we shall be able to buy Cuba, the Queen Island of the gull, for a song; for less than the cost of the Florida wur. Let us go to war now, and it may cost us one hundred and fifty millions to recapture it, and not a few of the mu rines See how beautifully all these things dove tail toeether?the peaceable annexation of Mexico ?the cession ol the Island of Cuba?the dominion of the Pacific from the line of 49 to the neck of Pa nama?the carrying trade of China and the Pacific Iilinds, Australia, Polynesia, and Japan. Do you sec how the early acqusition of all these advantages depend upon the preservation of peace. Mr Cal houn, like your reporter, ir. a man of enlarged viewe, looking to ilie great results, and not to the thimble-rigging going on to hasten or letard the ends desired trom merely selfish or sectional con siderations. He is not that kind ot n man. He tias no time to play the demagogue, and no disposi tion to unite in the movements of such "smalldeer " As an American statesman he will present you at the proper tune, ihe true Anieriwin policy upon the Oregon question, in a review of the contingencies attendant upon peace or war. Mr. Chipman, of Michigan, on the great question ot Hltenritr the Messengers' and Pages' department ot the H?use. acquitted himself like a giant to-day. It in upon such stupendous questions as tnis that the genius of that great statesman of the Wolverines shines pre-eminent He enchained the attention of the galleries?h** attracted even the attention of the House?the reporters listened with utter derange ment at the tremendous consequences as portrayed hv the eloquent orator, that must inevitably result to this Republic from the election of a superintendant of the folding room; and had not Gen. McConnell called the gentleman to order, we are satisfied that his vivid imagination would have carried him from Plymouth Rock to Kalamazoo, thence to fifty-four forty, the Kuby-comb of British assumption. The s|?eecli ot Chipman deserves to be printed in letters of gold all around on the outside of the dome of the capitol, and we hope a resolution will be introduced to that effect. Mr. (iraves, of New York, followed in not quite so exalted, but m quite as sensible a strain. He went lor retrenchment, and was apparently of the benef that his constituents were not opposed to economy. In short, excepting upon the passage of the Texas bill, the proceedings of the House to-day were a holid.ty matter, at the expense, it is true, ot two or three thousand dollars to the people, but they can stand it. >lr. Calhoun hns removed again to his old quar* ters at the United States Hotel. He could not hardly be better suited. TWK\TV-XINTH CONGRESS. In Senate. WHSHinoTOif, Dec. 37, 1844.

Mr. Dickinson presented a petition from certain sailors; and Mr. Dix a memorial for the recovery of csrtain moneya ofStimtiel Swartwout, Sic. The joint resolutions admitting Texas into the Union, were brought in from the House signed by the Speaker, with a request for the signature ot the Vice Preaident. Deferred till Monday. Several bills were introduced: among them one by (ieneral Ashley, for the establishment of a permanent prospective preemption system in favor of actual set tlers and cultivators. Mr. Lkw, on leave, withdrew his resolution for in structing the President upon the subject ef opening nego tiations lor the purchase of the Kingdom of Spain, of tn ? Island of Cuba. Mr. Levy said he aid it at the auggeation of bis friends. ORKGO.N?MR. CALHOUN. Mr. Atchuvson's resolutions for instructing the seve ral committees in the premises respectively, upon the expediency of establishing a local government over Ore gun, and of i line of block-houses, and a of a corps of mountaineer riflemen, lor the protection and defence of emigrants ; and of a post route and post offices ; and ol Indian Agencies, principal and sub., and upon the expe diency ol granting lands to settlers, tic. Mr. Calhoun said that as these resolutions embraced a series of questions of the greatest character, he should be nleased if th? Senate would permit the postponement of their consideration until some day after the noly days, and that meantime, the resolutions be prin ed. Mr. Atchison said he had no sort of objection to their postponement; but as they were mere resolutions of inquiry he thought there could be no impropriety in re ferring them to the committees. They went no further than the President had gone in his message. Mr. Calhoun submitted that these resiHutions, and the resolution of Mr. Allen, for giving the twelve months' notice, be laid aside, and taken up on some given day, after the holidays. At any time thereafter, at the plea sure of the Senate, would be suitable to him. Mr. Atchison raid that Mr. Allen's resolution had been referred to the Committee on Foreign Relations; and that these resolutions would tefer themselves. Mr. Cslnou* suggested that meantime th* resolutions be laid over, and that, on some futare day, the whole subject matter of all the resolutions of Mr. Atchison, ana of the resolution of Mr. Allen, be taken up to gether. Mr. Allien hoped the resolutions would be permitted to pass to the committees. When tliey should lender in their reports, a day for their consideration could ba ap pointed Mr. Calhoun submit'ed to the arrangement, with the understanding that the whole ol these Oregon enquiries should bo taken up together, when formally taken up lor discussion. So the instructions o( Mr. Achisen to halt ado/.en ol the committees, were referred. [What do you think of that / Don't that begin to look like something ? Depend upon it, Mr. Calhoun will take Gen t uss by the lorelock upon the Or. son question ?
