Should the measures proposed at the present session, for the augmentation of the revenue, be adopted, tho committee think that the total receipts into the treasury, for sucoeeding years, will not fall short of $930,000 ; and, if so, the annual surplus, after paying the interest upon the present funded debt, and the expenses of the government, will be nearly one hundred thousand dol lar*. It is estimated that the interest which will be in arrear on the first day of July next, up to, and inclusive of whiok, it is proposed to fund, will not much, if any, ex ceed twelve hundred thousand dollars, and, if so, the additional annual charge upon the treasury will still leave us, at the end of every year, in possession of a surplus. Tho sinking fund, on the first day of December, 1843, amounted to $1,411,911 69, having been increased, in tho course of the preceding fiical year, $133,004 80. The entire public debt of the 8:ate, at this time, in cluding the bonds bold by the Baltimore and Ohio Rail load Company, is $18,186,784 98 Deduct Balti.i ore and Ohio railroad bonds, amounting to 3,200,000 00 And there remain* $11.986.764 98 By insisting the accumulations of the sinking fund semi annually, this debt may be extinguished in about hirty-fiva years. The State of Maryland has Invested large turns of money in various companies, chartered for the construc tion oi roads and canal*. In the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company she owns (independently of the three millions two hundred thousand dollars) stock to the amount of one milli n end fifty thousand dollars, upon which there was paid into the treasury, last y<ar, for di vidends, and the State's one-fifth of the passage money $86 699 43, being upwards of eight per cent, on the in' vestment Tho State also hold the bond* of the 8u?quehanna and Tide Water Canal Companies for $1,192,300, upon which thean was received last year for interest the sum of $74^10; and she holds, moreover, the bonds of the Balti more and Sutquehanna Railroad Company,$1,884,043 29, upon which there was paid last year for interest, $20,000 In addition to tbesa stocks and bonds, more or less pro ductive, the 8tate is the owner of bank stock to the amount of $310 966 66, and other productive stock, amounting to $23,000 The whole amount of her productive stocka and secu rities may be stated thus Bank stock $310 966 66 Baltimore and Ohio Railroad slock 1.030,000 00 Bond* of the Surquahanna and Tide Water Canal Companies 1,192,300 00 Bonds of the Baltimore and Surquahanna Railroad Company 1,884.043 33 Making $4,687,601 93 From the report of the directors on the part of the State in the Baltimore and Susquehanna Railroad Company, it appear* that the annual revenue from that work will be augmented from twenty thousand to upwarda of eighty thousand dollars, provided a measure which has already received the aanction of the House of Delegates shall be corae a law. The Susquehanna -and Tide Water Canal Companies, t is believed, will be able to pay regularly the fu | amount of the intereat on the debt contracted by the State for their benefit; end if so, the Chesapeake end Ohio Co. net is the only work in which tbd State has a deep Inter, est, whioh Is not affording material assistance to the re venue.

We learn from Washington, that accounts have been received by our government, of a later data than any which yet have appeared; and the intelli gence is of the moat important character, aa to the nogottation of our relatione with Mexico. By this news, it appears that the government of Paredes has refused to acknowledge *r receive Mr. Slidell, our Minister to Mexico. On this refusal being known, Mr. Slidell asked for his passports. This was refused. He then insisted on being al lowed an escort to Vera Crui, which, it appears was granted. In a short time, it may be expected that the United States, having tailed entirely in its mimion to Mexico, will have to resort to some other alternative. It is also stated, but on less competent authority, that the Mexican Government have organised au army of considerable force, to proceed to the Rio 1 Grande. The rumors, hitherto, relative to a counter revolution, by Arista, are now contradicted alto gether. It seems doubtful, however, whether this new expedition upon Texas is merely a paper expe dition, or not. In the mean time, our government has not been idle. We understand from Washington, that there is now assembled in the Gull of Mexico, or will be, in a short time, one of the largest fleets ever sent out by the United States, upon any occasion. It will consist of three frigates and two steamers, and other smaller vessels, which will number in all 275 guns, with a force of 2,500 men. The army is ordered to march to the mouth of the Rio Grande, and if the news is correct, it will be marched under able preparations, to as to bring Mexico to terms in a short time. The belief is, that British intrigue now pre vails at Mexico, and is at the bottom of all these belligerent movements. [Kdlcorlal Correspondence.j I mportant from Washington. Washington, D. C., Feb. 28,1846. A most significant and important o ebate on the Oregon (motion, has taken place in the Senate du ring the M two days, and it has been adjourned to Monday. The last news from England has pro duced a profound, as well as a complicated impres sion, upon the different elements of the govern ment, in this metropolis. All parties have now read and conned over the Queen's speech?the de bates in the British Parliament, and in the French Chamber of Deputies?the articles in the public press?and the various movements in France and England, connected with the relations of this coun- : try. All parties, and all public men, according to i their relative position, have made np their minds as to the character of that intelligence. The extreme war party in Congress look upon the news as any- j thing bat pacific; and, on the other hand, the ex treme peace party give a highly favorable interpreta tion to the aspect of this intelligence. This con flicting interpretation of the recent news, by oar leading public men, in both Houses of Congress^ has been particularly developed, during the last two days, in the Senate. What may be the impres sion that has been produced on the minds of the President and his Cabinet, through their private ad vices from the American Minister in London, is more difficult to ascertain. We have had strong symptoms of something important that is under way, but nothing officially has yet been divulged, from either our government or the British Embas sy, relative to the presept position of the negotia tion on the subject of the Oregon controversy be tween the two countries. We are expecting some thing important every day. The relation* of the two countries are yet in a most critical condition. There is but a very small difference, in point of real value, between England and the United States, on the subject of the Oregon dispute; and there is, also, a strong disposition, in the commercial interests ot both countries, to draw closer the bonds ot union?as may be seen from the tariff bill proposed by Sir Robert Peel, and that proposed by Mr. Walker on this side. Yet, in spite ot the minute difference on the Oregon ques tion, and the strong bond of union which it is so desirable should exist in our commercial affairs, it is possible that the turning of a straw amongst some of the factions in Congress, may lead to se ries of consecutive events, that may produce such differences between both countries as will lesd to a long and a terrible war. / am perfectly tatto oed, from everything I tee and hear, bath at Washington and amongst the people, that, if the Oregon question it not settled during this session of Congress, the difficulties of settling it hereafter, will be increased, ami inevitably will lead to the utter impossibility of accomplishing it, under any other basis than that of Hi 40. If this question shall remain an open one, and be thrown before the peo ple at the (lections during the next year, it will not be in the power of any government of the United States to settle it on the basis of compro mise. No matter what the result may be on the j destiny of the nation, hereafter?no matter what j wars may be caused?no matter how much the British Government may threaten about Ore- ; gon, or conciliate on commerce, I am per- | fectly satisfied this is the time to settle this ; question on the basis of compromise between j the two countries. And, if the present session ; be allowed to pass away without such settle ment, it never done hereafter, on less than 64 deg. 40 min.; and that being ths ease, ultimate collision between the two countries is trembling on | the weight of a hair. This singular position of the relations between ! England and the United States, anses from the pe-1 fuliar form and action of this government. Even during this session, the war party, or that portion of , the members of Congress which affect to be the 1 war party, for ulterior purposes, are comprised of ! certain portions of the two old parties; and although 1 they may be unable to effect any thing leading to these results, from what has been already indicated j during this session of Congress, it is just as sure as ; day that the postponement of the Oregon question to another period?another session?is looked to, from a consideration that it will give them an in crease ef power and activity in the Legislature here after. Mr. Polk's influence over that portion of his party is not very great; and his influence over his whole party, which is nominally in a majority, is. in consequence of the peculiar position of of the Presidential cliques in their operation for the succession?this influence is diminishing everyday. :n is called The administration party?or that whicti democratic?is divided into a number of Presiden tial cluptet, each with its leader, and guided, princi pally, in their legislative action, by no other motives than those which have reference to the succession for President. In fact, Mr. Polk and his Cabinet have already, in this early period of the Presidency, entered upon that isolation from their own party that marked the Tyler administration. There is an oininons want of confidence between the President and the great leaders ot the democracy. The opposition?the whigs?are united more firmly, and can thus throw every embarrassment in the way of Mr. Polk and his measures. They have been very cautious, and somewhat divided, on the Oregon question?avoidiug the unpopular aide as much as possible. They are bolder and more open, and lets divided, on the tariff question. On the other hand, the democratic section ia divided into several frag ments, each taking different directions, more or less, on all the leading questions. It is this disorganized state of parties that produces delay, and causes difficulties in the action of our government, on the Oregon aQd other questions. What the result may be, no one can tell. Every ons thinks that war cannot take place between the United Statas and England on the insignificant points of difference involved in the Oregon ques tion ; and these impressions are increasing, by looking to the commercial revolution proposed by Sir R Peel, which it is expected will eventually turn out so fnvorably to this country. Bat, in the face of this, there yet lurks an inward fear lhat, from the peculiar tendencies of the various factions in Congress, and the impracticability of the British government getting a full knowledge, through their Minister here, of the peculiar position of this gov ernment, that this condition of affairs may lead, ?tap by atsp, and bit by bit, from ons point to an other, until both are involved in sueh a knot of diffi culties as can only be unravelled by war. ? In the meantime, there are influences at work in both Houses of Congress, endeavoring to put ofl, as fur as possible, the two great questions of the day? the Oregon and tho tariff question. The Hous - of Representatives is now engaged on the internal improvement bill; and, when they finish that, they will go to the warehousing and sub-treasury bills. 1 have reason to believe, that the tariff question, which involves bo much in relation to the commerce ol the two countries, and watch has created so great an interest, even in the mind of Sir Robert reel, in England, will be the last taken up this ses sion, and that its tate will be connected, more or less, with that of Oregon ita^f. There is no neces edf sary connection?no direct union?between the Oregon question and the tariff ; but there is a mys terious influence between them, waich will either have the effect of settling both, at the present session of Congress, or unsettling both ; and thus leave the country in a most excitW condition, with the chance of a future war. Every day and every week the war party, now in its germ and infancy, will in crease in this country, if matters remain as they are. And it is the belief of many intelligent men, that more depends on the magnanimity and good sense of the British government, in relation to terminating this Oregon question, by meeting the views of the American government, to preserve the peace of the world, than all other influences; In their approaches to a settlement of these matters, the British govern ment is not embarrassed by a Parliament hostile to any nioderate compromise on the subject. The British Ministry is not obstructed by a party look ing to war for ulterior purposes. The American government, in this respect, is placed in a more awkward position, and hence the prudence and the sagacity of both the French and the British govern ments, in observing a certain policy in all their re lations with the United States, when they take into consideration the |>opular elements of which the lat ter is composed. I understand that an invention of a very remark able character, capable of being organised into a system of harbor defence, of the most magnificent uojk kind, will soon be presented to Congress, an" is : now before one of the committees. Captain Tay lor, the celebrated inventor of the sub-marine appa- | ratus, has submitted this new apparatus, of which we have heard so much for the past few years. This invention ia baaed on a combination of electricity, and other principles, and ia calculated to create an entire revolution in the art of defending sea ports from the attacks of an enemy. I understand that by this new system, the harbor of New York could be defended against the attempts of all the j navies of the world, at comparatively a trifling ex pense. This new invention ia called a Sub-Marine Battery. The apparatus of this Sub-Marine Bat tery could be placed in a very short time at all the out-lets and in-lets about the haborsof New York, J and any hostile vessel that may endeavor to sail up, ' would be, nine chances to one, blown to atoms, i before she could anil one-third of the distance. I The committee to whom this new invention is snb milted. ia now investigating the matter, and it is probable that Congress will make a small appropria tion, in order to teat its capabilities, by which the country will be placed in a position to enj?y its ad vantages in the event of any emergency hereafter. Wasiiinqton, Feb. 26,1816. ; In my communication to you of this day, at 2 j o'clock A. M., I stated that an extraordinary Cabi- J net meeting was held after 8 o'clock the previous 1 night, and continued in session until a late hour; i and that Mr. Pakenham had submitted his ultima- ; (um to our goverraent for consideration. This ia all true. Mr. Pakenham waited upon Mr. Buchanan, at the State Department, early in the evening, and re mained there lor an hour or more with him. The consequence of this was, an immediate meeting of the Cabinet at the late and unusual time of night above named. It is not necessary for me to say what the nature of the British Minister's proposition ia, nor would it be prudent for me to do so under the existing state of the case; but I will say this, that it is of such a character as to be wholly inadmissible by this government, and that the present prospect of things here is warlike?aye, warlike. What the government intends doing to place the country in a proper state of defence tor the crisis, which seems to be inevitable, I have not as yet learned ; but it would be right for the President to advise Congress upon this subject as soon as practicable. This, I believe, he will not do until after the passage of the notice by both houses; then, and not till then, will , he call upon them for aid to carry out ths objects con- 1 templated in the act. The general aspect of things | in the Senate is very unsettled and discordant. Par- ? tv lines there upon this question are evidently bro ken up There are Mr Calhoun and some tour or j five of hia followers, breasting the storm of opposi tion with which the rest of hia party are bearing down upon him; and, on the other hand, there are Mr. Crittenden and his friends in an antagonist po- ! eition to the majority of their party in the same noay. | There seems to be a fusion of opposite elements go- i mg on at this time among Senators, bo lhat it is d if- ! ficult to tell what tne effect of such a combination may be upon the question now before them lor ad justment. On one thing they are all agreed, vi71 I the giving of the notice, but do not agree as to the | form. All the great men of that body spoke tonfciy. What they said was short, but to the point. Among those were Messrs. Webster, Cass, Calhoun. Crittenden, Breese, Allen, Clayton and Keverdy Johnson. Gen admitted that if neither party receded from Cbbs admitted that if neither party receded from their present positions, after the twelve months' no tice should expire, war was inevitable. He was sa tisfied that England would not, for if she did, it would be contrary to her general course of policy at all times; and on the other hand, he did not believe there was one man in either that body or in the whole country, who was willing to surrender an inch of territory south of the 49th parallel. We all know that the British possessions and forts belonging to the North American Fur Company, lie between the north bank of the Columbia river an d the straights of Fuca, which, if she surrender to this country, will be the same as giving up the whole territory. The question then recurs, is she willing to do this, or has the idea ever entered into her thoughts'! I believe neither, and, therefore, we may as well prepare in time for a conflict with her, as there is no American that is anxious to surren der either any portion of the territory south of the 49th parallel, or sacrifice the honor of his country at the shrine of commercial avarice. This nation has nothing to fear from England in the event of a war, if our citizens be only true to themselves; for her present embarrassments, inde pendently of those that are likely to arise with oth er powers?say Russia and France?after war breaks out, would be enough in themselves to de stroy her position as a first rate power among the family of nations. There is no telling the disasters j to which she would be subjected in a war with the United States. Axist.. Washington, Feb. 26,1R16. A Great Day in the Senate?Important Crieit in the j Oregon Debate. We have had a great day upon the Oregon ques- i tion?the most important day of the session. The i opposing columns of the 64 40 and the compromise men, have met with fixed bayonets. The clashing of the steel was startling and exciting; and we J might say that the compromise party have exhibited a phalanx that appears to be irresistible, chiefly upon the proposition of Mr. Colquitt, expressing as j the sense of Congress: " that it is earnestly desir- I ed that the long-standing controversy respecting the limits in the Oregon territory, be speedy settled by negotiation and compromise, in order to tran- 1 quillize the public mind, and to preserve the friend ly relations between the two countries " Messrs. , f j>M \ 1/I.kaluv DfasaS f 'aI.iIII ft lllfMtn * Crittenden, Webster, Breese, Colquitt, Calhoun, Alien, Hannegan, Johnson of Md , Pennybacker, and Cass, took part in the discussion to-day. Mr. Webster thought that it was time some decision up on the attitude of the administration should be had ?that some idea of its intentions should be known. Mr. Crittenden was tor leaving the matter with the President. Mr. Calhoun thought that Mr. Colquitt's resolutions ought to be passed this very dav, in or der to go out with the next steamer. Gen. Cass considered them in bad taste. Mr. Hannegan sub mitted an amendment repudiating a compromise, .ny rurrenaer of the territo and protesting against any ry. Mr. Allan contended that the President stood out forthe Russian line. Mr. Johnson of Md de sired the authority of this declaration. Mr Allen said it was derived from the records. Mr. Breese considered ihe basis of 64 40 a question of nerve. Mr. Colquitt thereupon dissected Mr Breese, or ra ther flayed him alive. It was a litile of the sever est skinning operation we have seen for some time. The a quarter past four, stopped the dis cussion, and adjourned over to Monday next?28 to 24?Mr Colquitt voting in the affirmative. The day was one of intense interest, excitement, laughter and seriousness. There has bean no day of die session to compare with it. See Senate re port. TWKITTY-NINTH CONGKKSS.

MICHIGAN RAILROAD AND canal GRANT. The bill for granting land* to the State of Michigan, fort he furtherance ot certain railroad*, and to aid in the completion of the Lachine canal, waa taken up on mo tion of Mr. Speight. Mr. Wooddbidoe undertook, or overtook, tke exposi tion of the advantages that would accrue to the govern ment from the grant of these alternate aectiona, aa here desired.

The subject of the twelve months' notice to the go vernment of Great Britain of the abrogation of the con vention of joint occupancy of the Oragon, with all its multifarious proposition* of amandmandmant, waa re sumed. Mr. Brcese submitted an amendment, providing that the joint occupancy, under the conventions *f 161$ and 1817. (halt cease from the rxp'ration of the twelve month* after the notice, which shall be immediitaly given. He moved, meantime, to postpone the subject till monday next. Mr. J. M Clayton desired to have an understanding of the question, in .t? various forms, before the Senate. Mr Allen explained tint all the propositions of amendment were independent in themselves, and would have to b* voted upon, as also, the the House resolution, wnicb was involved in the special order, and from which, as a matter of course, there was no chance of eaeape. Mr. Calhoun desired to know tb* question. Mr. Benton hoped that the Senate would, when It came to vote, promptly act upon the House resolution. A Senator asked whet was the question The Chairre plied the motion to postpone till Mon ay next. Mr. Wesstcs explained his understanding of tke cause, and said that it was time the Senate were express ing te log some opinion on the subject, if it were ever going I express any opinion at all. Hia own opinion* were as ion this question. He thought that when tb* $e treme upon this question. He thought nate adjourned yeaterday, it was with the understanding Jhat the question wa* to be taken on Mr. Colqnittw amendment to-day. Mr. Crittkndkn said that the first branch of the amendment of the Senator from Georgia, of yastarday, for the conciliation of the Senate, waa in itself eo much like his owu, that ho could not object to it) bat was another resolution (recommending ,a speedy settle negotiations) to which be could not so cordially ment by : concur. Hethought iomi further modification waa cesaary to this new and distinct proposition. Mr. Crit tenden recommended the postponement. The notice it self was not to be given until after the close of the pre sent session. Where, then, was the necessity of haste 7 He was for leaving the responsibility, meantime, in the hands of the Executive Department, for neither tb* in terests of the country, nor its honor, norths character of the government, were aetociated with the idee of war. It waa not necessary for political capital ; and all thia shouting and turbulence, he know would not effect the wisdom of the ultimate decision of this Senate. The whole country were looking to it for a peaceable deele* I ion. It wu the Ant duty of the country to preeerve tno peace. He desired, he believed, the question would bo settled by some of the recognized means of adjustment of national disputes. Reverting to the question of ar bitration, Mr. Crittenden appealed that such mode of adjustment wee not confined to crowned heeds; but it embraced men of talents, wisdom and experience. With some further general observations on the duty of a pacific adjustment,distinguished with the marked ability of Mr. C., he took his seat [Crowd pressing into the galleries. J Mr. Wesstkb, after stating the nature of thequeatioa before the Senate, arising out of the various amend ments proposed, suggested to to the honorable lender, that if the second resolution of the Senator frees Geer Siu did not meet his entire concurrence, he eould with raw his own resolutions, permit the Senator from Georgia to submit his, and then the Senator from ken tucky might propose such amendment as he should deem expedient.

And be it further Resolved, That ft is earnest ly desired that the long-standing controversy respecting the limits in the Oregon be speedily settled by negotia tion and compromise, in order to tranquillJso tbo publie mind, and to preserve the friendly relatione At the two countriee. Mr. CaiTTcnosv said he would adopt the first resolu tion of the Senator from Gaorgia. Mr. WcatTsa said that tha proceedings of this body were looked to with ioftnito interest at home. He coula feel this, perhaps, more sensibly then the Senator I rem Kentucky, from living among tha people of the Atlantis seaboard, and the lossos that are daily arising out of the Ere sent posture of affairs. Ha woulo say a word more, [e would vote for tha proposition of the Senator from Georgia entirely. He waa prepared to do that. At the opening of the eesaion, the President of the United States, doubtless from e sons# of duty, had communi cated the official correspondence between tbo authori ties of tho two governments, up to that time. Tha cor respondence became a matter of remark in both honaoe, and of public discussion Mr Wsbstar then stated the subsequent circumstances which lad t? bis motion ad some weeks sgo, calling for tbo latest official correspon dence upon the Oregon question, and referred to tho oer^ roapondonce on the arbitration question, which had bean, accordingly, communicated by tho President. His resolution had produced the correspondence upon tho offerand the rejection of arbitration Now, without meaning to enter into any sort of examination or re mark, in respect to this overture of tbo British Govern ment, ho would say that, in tha present posture of af fairs, it waa quite desirable to know what was the opi nion of the executive. Nobody deubtt that the two bouses of the Congress of tha United States have the authority to give the notice for terminating the conven tion. and that that act cannot be a Just causa Af offence j but let us consider the circumstances in connection, by which this measure is surrounded. The nottoe, with a qualification or condition, had passed the Houae- It had come into tho Senate, whore other proposition# were also submitted. Tha Senator from Kentucky una for leaving the responsibility where the constitution bed placed it?in the control of the executive. Thin was ail right and proper In hit (Mr. W.'s) own mind, it was a question of doubt whether they should adopt anything but tha naked notice. Still it waa right to expeet ?oat condition Ho thought It proper to know tho opinion of tho executive aa to the affect Af tbo notice?what its consequences, and where it tends. What ha said six wscks ago, he would now repeat. Tho President did not expect war?ho did not act like a man wao expect ed it. There was nothing to indicate the apprehension of a collision with tho most powerful enemy upon the aarth. Thorn was nothing in the recommendsiieni of his message looking to war?nothing to lead to the idee that ho baa the remotest expectation of war.
