An extraordinary Cabinet meeting waa called lost night about tl o'clock, in a moat private manner, which broke up but a short time since. The late* ness of the hour, and the secrecy with which the call was made, will prevent me from entering more this time, into any speculation as to the im portant business which brought them together in so sudden a manner. 1 will, however, say it is thought that the British Minister made his ultimatum to" day; and although its nature has not yet been fully developed, enough is known to cause sober think ing people to retlect seriously upon the present slate of our foreign relations. Of one thing you may rest assured, which is, that England is not going to surrtndtr am* foot of territory north of the Colum bia nttr, without a ttruggle. She " will not be bul lied much longer by the United States." Such is the language of her Minister to private persons here. I have the most indubitable authority for saying this, notwithstanding the peaceable appear ance of the late news from England. The Secreta ry ot State has been, late and early, for the last three days, writing despatches to all our Ministers and Consuls abroad, which shows that there is trouble in the camp. In addition to the foregoing, a Southern Senator had it in contemplation, in secret session, to take the whole of our foreign affairs out of the hands of the committee in charge of them in the Senate, but I which was postponed tor the present, lest the act 1 might prove injurious to the public interests. In j this movement, all the whigs of that body were j willing to co-operate, but through the earnest oppo- I aition of two or three democratic Senators, the measure was defeated for the present. All this goes ta provs my previous statements of the unfortunate condition in which Mr. Polk is placed, owing, as 1 have said before, to his want of confidence in his' legitimate advisers?the Senators of his own party. It will be remembered that about four months ago, I informed you that Mr. Walker and the Bri tish Minister were leaking arrangements for a re duction of the impost duties by their respective go vernments, at the Treasury Depwfpient. Well, the last news brought us the confirmation of this, in the fact that Mr. Walker's report was in England before it was officially submitted to Congress. There would have been nothing very extraordinary in this, had not the friends of the tariff endeavored to throw obloquy upon the Secretary of the Treasury, for having given the British Minister this informa tion in advance of Congress. There certainly was no great harm in this, as both governments seemed desirous of abolishing the restrictive system on im ports altogether, except so far as that which might be necessary to ilefray the expenses of the two go vernments respectively. The way this report got out, was simply as follows: Mr. Pakenham being in Mr. Walker's office on the day announced by me, saw his report and projct lying on his table. Being deeply interested in its contents, he asked the Secretary for a copy of it, which was given him, and which he immediately transmitted to his go vernment. So much, then, for this affair, about which there is so much fuss made. It is the opinion of the most intelligent here, that should a reduction of the tariff take place, it will not benefit Ameiican breadstuff* in the least, as the ports in the Baltic are able to supply England with all she wants, at eleven shillings per quarter ^ less than we could do it for. This is proved by (he fact that whilst we pay but four shillings duty upon j flour entering Canada for transhipment to England, the flour from the Baltic pays fifteen shillings, and is able to meet us in the market at that. Ariel. Postscript.?From a gentlemen by the southern boat last night, 1 learn that a duel was fought at Richmond, Va., between Mr. Robert Pleasants, of the Richmond Whig, and Mr. Wm. Ritchie, of the Enquirer, in which it is said the formur was killed. They fired four rounds each, with pistols, and then closed up to each other with bowie knives. Mr. Ritchie received three cuts?one in the mouth, one in the arm and one in the breast. Mr. Plaas ants received a cut across the abdomen, which has caused his death. Mr. Ritchie, I understand, is now in this city. Washington, Feb. 25,1816. Appointments, Confirmation.t, tjrc. fye. Romulus M. Saunders, of North Carolina, was j confirmed to-day by the Senate, as Minister to j Spain, in place of Washington Irving, who has re* I quested to be allowed to return home. An interesting case has been going on in the Su preme Court lor some days, relating to a planing machine, in whioh the Mr. Phelps of the Senate, is engaged. He is considered, by both the court and bar, to be a lawyer of superlative talents, and on this occasion has far surpassed-all his other forensic efforts. Some days ago I said that the nomination of Isaac Wright, Navy Agent at Boston, was opposed by the Southern Senators,on account of his supposed abolition principles. This was one side of the story. It is only fair, in all such cases, to give the Oiher, which I now do, not being interested one way or another in the matter. His friends say that Mr. Wright has ever been an open and decided op ponent of the abolitionists in Massachusetts?was the first editor in Massachusetts to advocate the an nexation of Texas, under Mr. Tyler's treaty; and as soon as Mr. Polk was nominated, took the stump for Polk, Dallas, Texas and Oregon, throughout the Bay State. I hear that he was the author of the spirited and graphic account of the famous Anti Texas Convention at Fancuil Hall, which appeared in the New York Herald last winter. Certainly, no one who read that account, would accuse him of abolition sentimen'.a. In '44 he run as the demo cratic candidate for Congress, against J. Q Adams, and got the same vote as Mr. Polk?no abolitionist voting for him. A&w.. Washington, Feb. 25,1846. Doingt in Congress?Mr. Dickinson?AImott a De ri ri on in the Senate, upon the Oregon? The Harbor Bill in the House?An Estoppel, by Mr. Holmes, upon I jog-Rolling. The long and laborious effort of Mr. Dickinson, of York State, is finished?he has brought his argu ment to a close; and we do solemnly assert, that after a discursive dissertation of nearly four hours, (yesterday and to day,) he has left the qaestion standing precisely where he found it. His summa ry of the evidence of our charter to Oregon, from Spanish and American explorations and settlements, as compared with those of the English, was but an imperfect recapitulation of the testimony on the title, ss condensed in the clear and methodical ar gument of Mr. Dix?his description of Oregon, he acknowledged to be from an old speech of Colonel Benton?while the commercial division of his har angue was in part from the great commercial speech of Mr. Allen, on the Texas annexe* ion, at the last session?and in part from the con mercial speech of the some Senator, on the Oregon, on the 10th of the p.vsent month?his onslaught upon Mr. Web ster. was borrowed from Mr. C. J. Inge moll's con cluding remarks upon the notice, in the House while the questions of impressment, the N. E. boundary and the Caroline, ns indicating the policy of the British government towards us. were so evi dently suggested fiom tne late essay of the Senate's Chairman on Foreign relations, that we wondered | Mr. Dickinson did not concede his obligations. For his own sake, aa a son of York; for the sake I of the Senatorial reputation of Mr. D.; for the sake of our high personal regard for him aa a man, wa 1 do wish he had said leas, and had said it more to 1 the purpose. It was an up-hill business.with the I honorable Senator from the start, aad hit strength ' and courage sensibly diminished as he ascenderf? ( He appeared to grope and lee! his way, rather than to walk up to the Question, and into its merits, with ? his eyes open and his undemanding wide awake. ! And yet the fault was tnore in the manner than in i the matter of the honorable Senator. Had Clay de li vered the aame speech, in the same identical words. Senators, so far from going to sleep over it, aa they ' did, would have listened, and would have been in terested, it not edihed. It was the bard, metallic voice of the orator, aad his labor in getting along, : that made the listener weary; and still, hopeful from sympathy, that there would yet^ke a redeeming ex plosion of indignation?a brilliant overflow of (pa triotism?a racy and sparkling repartee, a spicy ; anecdote of illustration?a choice historic incident appropriately applied, or something to agitate into a npfln the stagnant surface of the orator's appeal? i but none of these saving clauses were introduced? It wan a dull journey over the dead level of ioreusic mediocrity. The positions of Mr. D. were all well enough ; his exposition of the title?his advocacy of the notice? his animadversions of the chicanery of Great Bri tain in her relations with us?ins recommendations of maintaining our rights at all hazards, and of only settling the difficulty by negotiations without in fringement of the natioual honor?were all strong points for an effective argument, for some originali ty of thought, and research, and recital, and deduc tion. But in all these essentials the speech of Mr. Dickiuson was as barren as his manuer was devoid of life, action, or effect. Mr. D. cannot appeal to the plea of the youthful Helicon?lie is old enough to appreciate his own merits; and yet, the necessity of dispelling his ignorance upon this (aunt is the par amount inducement to our present strictures. We do solemnly believe that he lias a high estimate?a very high estimate, of his intellectual calibre, and that thia destructive idea has prevented hun from that indtutrtoiis research, and atudy, and applies tion to Mtory, to politics, to governmental science, so essential to the perfection of a great statesman.? The great secret,most unappreciated by Mr. Dickin son is, that when one has but little to say, he should say but little, and be done with it. As soon as Mr. Dickinson had concluded his well meant and charitably received discourse, Mr. Day ton moved the postponement of the question, tor two weeks from Monday next. Mr. Allen resisted the motion, bscause it would argue of fear and quailing. Gen. Cass seconded the Senator from Ohio. Mr. Calhoun wanted the amendment voted upon, and disposed of, and the question put 111 some questionable shape, before he, at least, should speak to it. Mr. Calhoun desired Mr. Colquitt's amend ment to be read, so did Mr. Crittenden. The amendment of Mr. Colquitt, was according ly read for information. It recommends briefly the settlement of the Oregon controversy by negotiation, and gives the President discretionary power to with hold the notice, even alter the adjournment of the present session. On motion of Mr. Allen, the Senate went into ex ecutive session, after voting down a motion by Mr. Mangum to adjourn. In the House, the harbor bill has been under the hammer. Mr. Holmes, to prevent log rolling, se cured the passage of a motion, by which the vote upon every amendment can be analyzed. Mr. Payne, of Ala., denounced the system of internal improvements, as herein proposed to be introduced, most indignantly. Mr. Brinkerhnff followed in if lake f defence of lake harbors, as an off?et to Southern fortifications. [See House report ] We shall have some interesting passes, at arms length, upon this billyet. Tne ringing of the lost bell interdicts further com mentary for the present. Wasiiinoto.n, Feb. 25, 18-&5. The Anniversary?Washington's Birth Day Assem bly?Soms Particulars of that Spleuiid Affait? Dreadful Fracas at Richmond, Fit.?Turning Point of the Oregon Controversy in the Senate. We had purposed an elaborate and deliberate ac count of the splendid Washington Anniversary Bill, giwtn at Carusi'a Saloon on Monday evening last; but matters more important to the public have deprived us of this great anticipated pleasurable description. We will take occasion to say, how- ; ever, that it was a most recherche affair?that New York, and the State of New York, were welt repre sented, in ladies and in gentlemen, in numbers, in elegance, beauty and grace, and in talents, dignity and station. The saloon was full of bright eyes. The President was there, the private secretary of the President, and Mrs. J. K. Walker, were there. Most of the corps diplomatic,in their court cos tumes,were there?officers of the army and navy in uniform,were there?judges of the Supreme Court, members of the cabinet, members of Congiess, edi tors, reporters, strangers and citizens, were there? all told, not less than six huudred people were there during the evening. The President led the way down to the elegant supj>er?partook of it?laughed and chatted with the ladies, cracked jokes and ate heartily, and enjoyed himself very much. The whole arragements were creditable to the good taste of Mr. Miller?the supper was particularly po fular; but we must Bay that we did get hold of a ottle ot champaign which could not or would not explode. As Mr. Miller, however, is always con- , siderate to the " press gang," we wish that he may always be encouraged in his public "swarriesr'| with a mass meeting of the "good and brave and beautiful," like that of the Washington Anniversary Ball. We do wish we had time to go into particu lars of this tine ball, and i'faith, with your permis sion,we will to some extent. And we will give the names of some ol the patrons and participants ot the festive scene. The President, plain suit of black, pleasant ns a , sunshiny day; looks as though he Blept well of nights, notwithstanding the Oregon question.

II you want a pleasant chat, look out for the second named of these three ladies.

But we must not forget the pretty little L E L., late of Kentucky; norMissAshb?y, of Virginia; nor? bnt positively we haven't time to say any more. ; One thing, however, we will say, that we missed very inucn the beautiful and most winning little Mrs. H , and the blue-eyed Mrs. S . of Peon- , sylvania. At the President's late levee, there was not one of the hundreds aspiring for the premium of taste, grace, and beauty, that could surpass Mrs. H. We expect a reprimand for this; but we will risk it. ' We learn this evening, of a most murderous af fray at Richmond, Va.. between young Pleasants and a fton of Father Ritchie. They fought with revolvers?each firing six barrels si his adversary ' without eirect. Ritchie then drew a kniie and I Pleasants a sword-cane. Pleasants put hort dm combat; expected to die. Ritchie slightly wounded i ?Hed to Washington. Such is the report. Cause I of fight?a quarrel in the papers, growing out of polities. The report of the debate in the Senate to-day, particularly the amendment of Mr. Colquitt, allows that we are on n very important turning .point upon the Oregon question.

A Spencer,) wis retained by Mr. McLeod, prior to the ap .ointment of laid Spancer to said Attorneyship. Mr. D did not think it imperative upon Mr Spencer, that after his oflr cial appointment, he should abandon the case of McLaod. With some further remarks upon this iatricats rasa, Mr. D recurred to the fact, that in all negotiation* wi'Ji Great Britain, all the concessions had been on uur side; end that in this very case of McLeod, the laws of New York had been superseded by the Fedsral suthoii yj and that Lord Brougham had boasted of it in the British Parliament, as a case in which the American Conatitn tion had been overruled, out of deference to the de mands of Her Majesty's government Read the letter of instructions from Mr. Webster. Bscre'ery of State, to the New York Attorney General, prescribing that Mc Leod should have good and able counsel, he Used from the remark* of Lord Brougham on the subject Reour ring st length to the suhj?ct ol the notioe, Mr. D. was not of the opinion that it would arrest negotiations. Mr. J. M. Clayton woult ask a question of the hono rable Senator He had apoken yesterday of a commer cial treaty with England; and that he hoped we should meet England in auch an arrangement half way. Mr. O. desired to atk, what did this meaol Mr. Dickinson replied, that in the commercial regtt Htiona anticipated, he hoped we should meet the British i government in the same spirit with which it approaokod | us?that wo should give them advantages equal to those i we received; and out of tha vary same treaty, and intha i very acme terms. Mr. J. M. Clayton read from tb* raportad speech of Mr. Dickinson, how he hoped " we should meet Engli - - 1 in the same spirit of compromise," fcc.; " that created mouths iu England to be fed, and the mean* in this country ol supplying their wants." Mr. Clayton desired to know whether the honorable Senator reiorrod to a tariff treaty, or a treaty tariff. Mr. Dickinson said he did say that ho hoped W* should meet England half way, in a treaty. Mr. Clavton?In what kind of a treaty 1 Mr. Dicbinson said, he supposed that it would bon treaty mutually advantageous to both partiaa. Ha waa for not conceding more than we ahould receive, in such an arrangement, though in lavor of a reciprocity. Am I now understood I asked Mr. Dickinson, with great oon fldenco. Mr. Clayton nodded hi* head, and tn* whole whig aide of the Senate expressed tbeir approbation of thia lueid exposition of the commercial treaty in a mo dest laugh, the caccbination spreading even to tho lerias. Sir. D. protested that he should not now diaouaa this commercial treaty. It would be time enough for that when the subject should come up. Tho whole bur dan of his argument was founded up >n this proposition, that the Oregon question should stand by itself?upon its own merits. He approved ol the notice?he approved of the measures recommended by tbe President. There had boon peace with England for thirty years past, and he hoped there would be far thirty year* to coma ; but while lie approved of and hoped for peace, he was op posed to any concession of the national honor. Tho contest in this case was not confined to the mere 800,000 801 os of Oregon. It was a contest between tbe old world aod the new ; between the darkness of the old world and the sunlight of the new ; between tho manu factures of the old world and the fertile prairie* ol tho West. But Mr. D. wanted Oregon He wanted it for the enterprising yeomanry of the West?he want-d it tor posterity?be wanted it for the down trodden sons of Ireland, and even for tha oppressed of England, but not under English laws. Ia closing, Mr Dickinson adopted the language of the Senator from Michigan (Gen. Coaa) that we had batter fight for the flrit foot?Ui n the last? hotter meet the enemy at the threshold then at the hearth atone, better Contend with him at the door post than at the altar. [Thus closed Mr. Dickinson's triumphant vindication of the Oregon, of the Prmidtnt, and or our UUa and nor national honor. Ha did not, parhapa, trance end the ex pectation* of many ol hia friends ; but ha fully came UP to ourt, and wo aro proud ho did ao wall. " He did hia beat?angela could do no mora."] Mr. Dayton moved to poatpone tha whola subject to Monday fortnight. Tha debate had auapandad all other bill*. There were sixty bill* on tha calendar, and much buainea* belore the Senate, in another capacity. Mr. D. recommended the wisdom of auch auapenaion of thla dia cuaiion a* he had propoaed. Referred to the temperate tone of the newa trom England, and hoped we abould meet her in e similar tamper. Thie wea not likely to bu achieved, if wa acted in hot baite ; and ha baliavad tha Senate wa* net predisposed to precipitate action; baaidaa it would be an accommodation to Saoatora, to auapaod I tha debate for a time. He, therefore, propoaed the post ponement of the aubject to Monday fortnight Mr. Allien aaid he should vote against the motion.

It was bot desired as a matter of general policy. Tae other busineas of the Senate waa not preMing nor had the conduct of the Senate exhibited any tendency to hot haste upon this question. With regard to the pacifto news from England, Mr. Alien argued that it meant nothing, or Just exactly tha ravarsa ol what it appaered upan the surtace. Neithar tha speeches in Parliament nor the strictures of th* Britiih press were any proof of Cabinet designs Ha Uid no ttreaa upon auen informa tion?he gava no importance to it; and if ha dkd give any construction whatever, it waa exactly the revere* of what it profaned to be. If the aubject waa now pout poned, as desired, whan we were half way through, am the resumption it would bo a new thing, and tha whole ground would hare to be travelled over again. Mr. Evan* ?That la aaactly wbat wa want. But what was most important was, that Mr A did a*t wiili cow any quailing or holding back. Tha netio* was a treaty stipulation, and it wa* th# province of aithar party to giva it without hazard of offaoce. Ha hoped tha Senate would set without taking counsel of event* on th* other sula of the water. If the postponement were made as submitted, it would look like heeita ion? likt a want of narva?lika a want of heart, and in thla light our action would go forth among tha nation* of tho world. Tha moral affect would be bad in the extreme. Our hopes of peace rest selrty upon th* firm nan of our heart* in this work.

Mr. Calhoun hoped the motion of th* Senator from Now Jersey (Mr. Dayton) would not prevail. If no Senator* were now ready to spaak upon tha general question, he hoped they would at once proceed to vet# upon the amendment*. A considerable advantage would be thus derived, in giving to the question sons deOano shape, soma idaaaa to th# ultimata action thatwinta taken.
