Th- position <>l "tr I*l?tii with England seems I,, be full of doubt, mystery md uncertainty. The most contradictory statements are put forth with e i-I positiveness on the subject, Since the ter mination of the correspondence between Mr. Pakenham and Mr Buchanan, which took place last .-ummer, when the |iroposition of the American (iovernment was withdrawn, and up to the prerent l>eriod, the mystery has only been increased. i in this subject we have received the following private communication Iroin a correspondent at Washington WAIHIN0TON, Dec. 39. 1845 \J* Hissktt? ' 1 have ever recanted yon as a person of sound, excel M"ise, and clear judgment; and in conducting the l/y oid. vouceitalnJy ars first la procuring the Cabinet information. Nevenueless, you are occasionally led in Daring the p'*t week, 1 have noticed in your paper an intimation fr< -n " private advices," " undoubted authori ty," \c. of ihe Oregon negotiation having been re-open ed; and -'nix endorsed by you with implicit reliance on tiie tr-dh ot the statement. Vjw, .Mr. B., I am constrained to tax your sincerity, itiher than to question your judgment. Your corres pondents may all be good ineu and true?withal, trust worthy and tagacious persons, enjoying full confidence of the Executive, heads and clerks of Depaitments? hand in glove with Mr. Takenham?very conspicuous gentlemen, too, as much so as lounging about bar-rooms and living on Pennsylvania avenue can make them?in fact, diving deep into the secrets of the whole communi ty;?but with due deference lor their" reliable sources," I, ax an humble individual, having no hopes of being en ? oiled in your corps confidential, beg leave to pronounce the report, wind?more wind, sir. Lend me your ear, Mr. B.? 1 say the Oregon negotia tion has not been re-opened, either here or in London: nor is there the remotest prospect of it. The British Government will not yield the right to navigate the Co lumbia, and enteitain no hopes of a peaceful arrange munt, except through arbitration or mediation. The fueling of our government has been too plainly and forcibly made known, to admit of a doubt, as to the bourse marked out for future action, and now the mat ter stands thus -.?England must recede?the United Status must recede, or Loth must fight Tilings are wearing a uiost serious aspect, and there should be no false masoning in the minds of any. Stories of "amicable adjustments," &.c , may lull the public into fancied security: hut the news by the February steamer will, possibly, dissipate tho mist, and give a hint of ci vilities attendant upon the visit of twenty sail of tho line to our waters. Believe, Mr. B., that strangor things may happen, and do n?t ridicule these ideas of The last Washington Union has also the follow ing paragraph:? [From the Washington Union, Dec. 28.] The | tiationa I Intelligencer republishes a statement, from the NrwVork News, reported from Washington,V'to the effect that a settlement of the Oregon boundary question had been concluded in London between the British govei nment and Mr. McLano, on the basis of tiie 49th degree-the proposition having come from the former." As we are at present advised, this report is not correct. Other rumors are afloat in the papers, touching the same subject, which are equally destitute of loundu tion. II the Washington Union had not, during the last summer, and up to a recent date, deceived the public and violated the truth in several resects, relative to the movements ot the government, we should have been more ready to believe its assertions now But what confidence can be reposed in an organ that impudently denied the Ihct that Mr. Buchanan ollered the 19th parallel of latitude lest summer to Mr. J'akenham.-or that Mr. Polk had sent a Minis ter to Mexico, at the time when these two state ments were true 1 We are very much afraid that the statement of our corresjiondent, together with that of the Union, are both precisely the same kind ol mystification and special pleading, intended to deceive. We will now state what we believe, Ironi all that we can ascertain, to be the exact position ol the ne gotiations between the two countries. When Mr. Buchanan withdrew the proposition , ol the 49di parallel from Mr. Pakenham, the latter minister sent by the next steamer to Lngland the whole of the cotreapondenoe tint had taken place between him and the American Government. In consequence of some negligence or delay, Mr. liu t hanan did not, at that time, apprise Mr. McLane, j onr minister at London, of what had been done in Washington, relative to the Oregon question As ?oon as ithe Uritish Government received their : despatches trom Mr. Pakenham, an informal nti- t million was given to Mr. McLane, through Lord ! Aberdeen, of the (>eculiar position of the matter j between the two governments, and its abrupt termi nation This intimation was accompanied by the British Minister, with some regrets, reflectingon the abruptness,orsoniething ot the same nature, of their Minister at Washington, leaving an impression on the nnnd of Mr. McLane, that the British Govern ment would be glad to make a settlement ot the question, on the compromise otfered by Mr. Buchanan, or something approaching that line. Mr. McLane was thus apprised through the British government of what had taken place at Washing ton, before he received any intimation of the facts from his own government. He wrote several let ters to his Iriends in New York and Baltimore, ex pressing regret at the conduct of his own govern ment, and the unpleasant position that Mr. Bucha nan had placed him in. It will be recollected dial about that time several statements ap|>enred in the newspa|<ers containing the sentiments ol Mr Mc Lane towards the American government. By the next steamer, however, Mr. McLane was put in possession of the abrupt termination of the negotiations at Washington ana the whole corres pondence. Hither about that time or shortly alter, one or more informal conversations took place be tween Mr. McLane and Lord Aberdeen, in which notice was taken ot the abrupt termination ot the negotiations at Washington The Bri tish Minister expressed a great desire to settle the difficulty on an equitable principle of compromise, but not mentioning what those particular points would be. It was a general decla. ration ot an earnest wish on the part of the British Government to settle the matter amicably with the American Government. What the express terms might be was left to conjecture. Mr McLane com municated this important information ot the views ot the British Government, to Mr. Buchanan, by the last or the previous steamer. And shortly after wards Mr. Pakenhnm had an interview with some members of the American Government, on the same and other subjects. Out of these facts it was very naturally inferred at Washington, that there would be n?? difficulty between the two governments, and that some point of compromise would be agreed uj>on between them, commencing the ne gotiation at the forty-ninth parallel, where Mr. Buchanan had left it off. These friendly feelings and view* were communicat'd by Mr. I'akenhnm at Washington to many of his friends, and also by several members ,f the Cabinet to their friends.? On these commonicar.ions many persons naturally jumped at the conclusion that negotiations were re opened, and that there waee,-jy prospect of the dif ficulty being terminated in a short time either in London or Washington, but it was g*'<erally suppo sed in Washington, because our government wished to control the matter there These facts furnished the whole ground on whic. we formed die opinion of the termination ol the dif ficulty between the two countries. It will be seen that it hardly amounts to a re-opening of negotia tions, although it may be said to be preparatory to that step. Yet it is difficult for writers, editors and individuals, to talk.'^write, or speculate on this mat ter, without jumping to some positive conclusion. The negotiations are now in a stHte of betweeni ty, always itady to be re-opened, but not formally rc-opened In fact, the difficulty between the two countries is in a position to be settled penceablyand amicably, or to be opened afresh for the worst re sults. It is the turning point o? H great war or along peace. It will be seen from this view ol the case, that the Washington Union and the various Washington corr spondents, are deceiving and cheating the pub lic And the probability is, that all this is don- for some paltry ridiculous purpose, to 0|>erate on Con gress, in a way thai cannot he clearly discovered at this moment. Mr Polk in his splendid message, did his duty fairly and openly Whatever the press of Kngland may say, or orntors in Parliament may talk, we rather Ihink that the position the President has laken, will hasten, ami not delay the termina tion of the difficulty Congress may, or may not 1 act on the measures Mr. Polk has proposed to them, but we do not think tnat it will affect the probable isbue ol the controversy to such an extent as many suppose. It is now believed, that the actual re-open ing of the negotiation, by Mr. Buchanan and Mr. Pdkrnham, has only been suspended at Washing ton, for the present, at the suggestion or desire of Mr. Calhoun, in order to allow Congress time to act, or delay action, and thus prepare the way for an immediate settlement. Whether the tone of the President's Message when it reaches Europe, or the pregnant intimations looking towards Califor nia, tec., may change the views of the British government, time alonecan tell. We bide our time here,ready to accept a long and honorable peace from England?or to go to war at once, and begin the next grand transition era in Europe and the civilized world, that will raise the people from the dust, and sink monarchies in utter oblivion. Mnilcal Publications. The remarks which we made some time ago, with regard to new books issued in this country, can equally he applied to new music published in this city, Boston and Philadelphia. Our table is literally covered with .waltzes, quadrilles, polkas, ballads, marcties, quick-steps?dear music, cheap music, and " music for the million"?which inore properly could be called " music for nobody," or music for the lovers of trash and nonsense. It is n mutter o' no small surprise that there does not exist one house largely and successfully engaged in the music publishing business. Every music seller publishes yearly a certain quantity of pieces, for the purpose of exchanging with each other, and making some show in their catalogues, in which they usually wrap up the music bought at their respective stores. In looking, however, over all the cata logues for the last few years, we find, with a few exceptions, nothing but trash; and a peep in:o them must give an European musician still a worse opinion of the state of musical taste in Ame rica than really exists. The getting up is decent enough ?the engraving is neatly, although seldom correctly done, and the title-pages frequently are even very beautiful?but the paper is extremely spongy and chalky, and a few days use takes all the stiffness out of it, so that it must necessarily fall to pieces. Is it impossible to manufacture in this country such paper as is used by Schott in May ence, by Breitkopf and Huertl in Leipzig, or even like that of Simrock in Bonn, although of inferior quality I And when will American publishers leave off the ridiculous custom of fingering after the English fashion, instead of making it from one to five, as it is done in Germany, Italy and France 1 Is a thumb not a finger 1 and is it not strange that, in marking music, America should have adopted the custom of a nation whose musical standing iB below zero?which never has produced one performer of more than an English reputation, or one composer of note, unless it be Balfe, tiie illustrious author of the " Bohemian Girl," that modern ? tt,,? recent ly has disturbed ??? i-tactd temper of the two critics, ruf better, the individuals " doing" the musical criti cisms of the Courier and Express ? The reprints of European works generally, are mutilated in a most shocking manner. Whole pages are not unfrequent ly left out, lor lear that the additional charge of a shilling would drive the customer into a foreign music store. It is, therefore, not to be wondered at, if teachers prefer going to the foreign stores,, and preler paying a trifle more, and, very frequently, not even that, instead of giving their pupils mutilated copies, full of mistakes, which will be unfit for use before they have got half through. And even if they would not mind all that, can they get American edi- I lions of good pieces, or ought they form their pupils with the lucubrations of a Halloway or a Saroni 1 Notices of new musical publications?original or reprints?can be made very beneficial, if critically and conscientiously done. They must consist'of more than the title pages and names of publishers, as is me general custom?more nonoieo, However, in the breach than in the observance?although it is just the thing publishers generally require, wntch, by the by, is not a bad speculation on the part of those gentlemen, who, in exchange for one or two copies, of the value of a couple of shillings, get their music mude known to the public. We in tend giving notices, in future, of all publications which will deserve them?that is, if they are good, or very bad?as a warning to those who, not being able to judge for themselves, generally rely upon the re commendation of the music seller, who never fails to put into their hands the least saleable pieces of his catalogue.

I Paaa THeATBF.?A very respectable audience wai I in attendance la?t mgbt, to witness the repetition of the grand romantic opera of " Amilie," the music of which, > we think, whs much better sung than on the prorioua , evening. The entertainmenta concluded with the laugh I able farce of "Hie Last Lege," in which Mr. Barrett acquitted himself very creditably. Thie evening, being j New Year's night, a most attractive bill is presented, and we doubt not the walls of Old Drury will be Ailed to overflowing. "Amilie" is performed for the last time, together with a melo-drama in three acts, founded on a story of deep and thrilling interest, entitled "Remorse." We remember seeing the celebrated Mrs. DufT in the part of the heroine, many years ago, and the sensation she then created in it, will never be forgotten. Mrs. Bland now enacts the the character, and we have no doubt will produce the same effect, and thereby sustain her slready great and well deserved reputation. A fashionable and crowded audience will, most cert'dnly, congregate to witness the performance of this admirable play. Bowebv Thkatbk.?Last evening, a very strong and attractive bill was presented at this popular establish ment. The evening commenced with the grand drama of the "Surgeon of Pans," in which Mr. John R. 8cott performed the characters of the Black Knight, the Mask and tke Surgeon. After this, the tragedy of "George Barnwell" was played, and the evening closed with the drama of the "Mountain Grove," in which Messrs. Conv an?l Bianchard, and the dogs, appeared. To-day. being New Year*, there will be two performance*? the fint at two o'clock, I'.M., and the other at the utual hour in the evening. The afternoon performance will comiit of the grand romantic drama of " Timour the Tartar"?the comedy of "Lover'a Quarrel*," and the ipectacle of the "Dog* of the Wreck," The evening'* performance will con*istof "Pixarro," "The Murder on the ChlT," and Baaoiater'* grand national drama of "Putnam." Both of these are a* strong bill* a* hare ever been presented at the Bowery, and the house will, without doubt, to filled to it* utmost capacity. The Harmoneons.?'These popular vocalist* give their first concert at Niblo's, to-morrow evening. They are highly spoken of by all who have heard them. They will undoubtedly draw a full house. The Keans?Richard 111.?We learn that nearly one third of the seats in the dress circle of the Park, have already been engaged for the first night'* representation of Shakespaar's Richard III. The play will be brought out on the 7th instant, in a sty le of great splendor, and will surpass in all its appointments any " spectacle" ! ?ver produced in this country. The Ilichard of Kean I il acknowledged to be one of the most finished and thrilling pieces of acting ever witnessed. It undoubtedly ' is his great character?and in the delineation of it, he produces the most astonishing and striking effects. The | tragedy will undoubtedly hare a great run, but it will I require many crowded houses to pay the enormous ex penses, (some $10,000) incurred in getting it up. Leopold us Meter.?This distinguished artiste, and accomplished gentleman, is still in Boston, where he has been suffering for some time past, from an injury sus tained on the muscle of one of the fingers of the left hand, One of the Boston journals, in speaking of De Meyer, says " We regret to learn that this great pianist will not be able to give his second concert in Boston at pre sent. His hand troubles him so much that he is entirely disabled from performing anything which requires pow er. By the advice of several of the most eminent physi cians, he is going south, believing that a warmer climate will accelerate the cure. It is with the deepest regret , without fulfillir that he is thus obliged to leave Boston, without fulfilling his engagements. He will return at the earliest possible moment, to repay the many kindnesses he has received from his numerous friends in this city, when he will give his promised entertainment." Templeton.?This distinguished artiste appears to have been vory successful in Philadelphia. A paper of yesterday, speaking ol his Concert, says :?" Mr. Tem pleton's Concert on Monday ovening, was largely attend ed, (the Musical Fund Hall being crowded by a very faahlonable auditory. The songs and ballads in the pro gramme were very loudly applauded, and his powerful voice was shown to great advantage. The fire and ener gy with which ' The Minstrel Boy,' and ' A man's a man for a' that,' were eung, contrasted admirably with the sweetness and delicacy of ' John Anderson my Joe.'? Mr. Templeton sings with much expression, and his man ner adds to the effect which his skilful use by his vocal ability produces; and with a nice discrimination, he avails himself of every effective point, and throws it out at times with startling effect. We never before heard ' A man's a man for a' that,' sung in such a splendid msnner. The second of the series will be given to-morrow evening, in the Musical Fund Hall, and the ontertainment will bo devoted to the so.igs ol Sir Walter Scott." German Opera. -Strong efl'oits arc now beiog made for the resuscitation of the German Opera, which explo ded at Palmo'a. A number of gentlemen have taken the same materials out of which the other was built, and in tend issuing two hundred subscription tickets, so to guarantee a partial suppjrt, at least, previous to their commencing the Opera. One hundred tickets, at $30 a piece, have already been taken, and it has been decided t?at the Opera shall commence next month. Miss Julia Turnbull, .the danseuse, is in Charleston. South Caiolina.

' There appears t? considerable anxiety among the operators in Norwich and Worcester Railroad stock, as to the prospects for a semi-annual dividend, now about duo . This company have declared and paid three semi annual r dividends of three per c nt each, and they are as well able to declaro a dividend now as they wore at the end of each six of tho eighteen mouths previous to July last. The aggregate receipts this yea: will be about twelve thousand dollars more than they were last, w hich will aid the company very- materially in making a divi dend. It is stated that several of the d,rectors of the road are short of the stock, and that the ieclnration of a dividend is put off until they can get out| oi their 'difficulties. We are disposed to belicveJ this statement, as speculations in this stock have been more extensive, and the rW and greater, ?han in any other in the list. lYe tVurM tt.' ludod to among the bulls were caused by opera-lone in this railroad s'.ock, and it is to be expecte 1 tl at if any ?? the directors were very short, they would not he >ittte a moment to postpone, if possible, the dtslara'iou of | dividend, to prevent any improvement in the maifci | value of the stock.

The propo sed alterations in the tariff, will tend to rsstriot foreign importations, and the proposed establishment of the Sub-i Treasury law, will check the operations of the banks' and confine them to a very limited movement, until thai question is dispessd of in some way.
