The recent news irom England by the Yorkshire, received by ua exclusively, and published ia Wed ne?d :y*s Htrald, his whetted the appetite of the community for the news by the Unicorn. This vessel has now been at sea fifteen days, and may be hourly looked for. Her news will be four teen da> t.l iter than that brought by tha Yorkshire, and will, :n al! probabil ty, contain the settled and d liberately formed opinion of the English public a id pr. iB, and perhaps, also, that of Parliament, on the retusal of the American government to submit tb * Oregon question to arbitration The news will, therefore, be of the utmost con sequence, as from its lone and character, an opinion miy probably ba formed of the maintenance or nun-maintenance of peace between the United States and England. It will also accelerate or post pone the forming of commercial enterprises which have been suspended for a long time past. The n wa will bebrouehtto tins city by express, and will probably be published in the Herald imme diately after it is received, or as soon as in any oth er paper. 1'toe Emigration to Oregon?The bull for a ' Settlement of the U?f? Ion. Although our government at Washington, so far as we are advised, have made but little progress toward* a settlement of the Oregon question, yet there is one phase of it which, in the four months that Congress has been in stsrion, has undergone a great uinl important change. Th? question has two great phases?the one regards our rights in Oregon, and the ai iu il ultimate possession of its territory. ; The other looks to the various effects growing out of the discussion and agitation of the subject, as upon our foreign intercourse and relations, particu larly with France and England; upon business of a'l kinds, both domestic aud foreigu, and al.-o upon our domestic politics,upon which the farther the "abey ance" of the settlement of the qu-siion is thrown, the greater will be the mischief. As regards the latter phase, the sooner the matter is settled definitively the better?whether with the notice given or without, it matters not, so it be settled. Ujnm the other phase oi th<* question we have a few rematks to make. We say the. position of the question has under goes a great cltange. It has been discussed and argued before the people. The discussions and ar guments have been followed by a universal convic tion in the popular mind that our right and title to the territory ol Oregon, is clear and unquestionable up to forty-nine degrees; and very few ot those disposed to emigrate to Oregon, doubt the perfection ol our title op to fifty-four forty. In regard to title, pOHCestion, occupation, and actual improvement, will probably turn out to be about " nine points."? Possession can only be secured by emigration. An teccdt ntly to discussion and argument, there was no emigration. But pari passu with discusaion and argument, has proceeded emigration, just as the waters ot the canal fellow the spade and crow-bar. Tli ? reason i6 obvious Emigration would not go to Oregon to settle upon lands with an uncertain tenure. But just as fast a3 you demonstrate the va lidity and security of tenure, so fast will emigration occupy the territory. The free choice of selection, and the certainty of holding the soil in fee simple, ere abundant inducements to draw emigration eaough to occupy every ICO acre farm in Oregon, in an mcred.bly short space of time. And so far as the "sovereignty" of Oregon is concerned, we ap prehend that this is the possession which will con stitute the most impregnable title. Now, we take the ground that previous to Presi dent Polk's administration there was but little popu lar knowledge ol our rights in Oregon. Since the first of last December the subject has been fully and ably discussed in committee of the whole Union ? Conviction of the validity of title has followed dis cussion. And emigration will as certainly follow conviction. And sovereignty will, must, follow emi gration It is very probable that emigration will not go north of forty-nine. This line is, and will be, the boundary. Whether it be too far north or too far south, the calm, sober judgment of futurity will de cide. We only remark, that if it bo too lar south, upon the whig party must be the responsibility ? But for their opposition, the democrats would have gone lor fifty-four forty, and assumed all respon s.bilities that might have resulted from that posi tion. As it is, the democratic party must come down to tortv-nine; for it they cannot frame an ar gument to convince their whig fellow-cituens, how can they expect that their arguments thould con vince an ambitious rival 1 Believing, as the whigs do, that the British title north of forty-nine is better i than ours, they must, ol course, regird it as tres pi?s to settle there. It would, therefore, be contra ry to conscience and moral slnse, first to commit a trespass, and then compel the whigs to fight tor it. The duty of diplomacy is plain. It must settle the Oregon bound try with the least possible delay. Upon legislation devolves an equally important du ty, town?tofueuitate emigration to Oregon. Dis cuisioaand argument have fulfilled their task. It nov remains tor legislation, by the erection of block house forts?the organization of dragoons to protect the traveller?the construction ol roads and bndgee?the establishment ot a mail?and various other measures?to secure a full and rapid tide ol emigration to Oregon. Help and encourage our hirdy Western pioneers to r move to Oregon, and when transplanted there, with the rifle in one hand, and the United States Hag in the other, the sovereignty cannot be long in " abeyance " Indeed, c -mvinced ae they now are, that a valid title ie in the United States, there needs no pre-emption or any other law to invest the settlor witn title to his quar t-r section. Their own indigenous Oregon Legisla ture ctn efficiently and conclusively regulate all such nutters. In this view, it is to be hoped that Congress will immediately devise some means to encourage the hardy sons of the United States to emigrate to Ore gon?to fill up that section of the continent with brave and determined spirits. Ockan Stsam Ships ?The Hibernia, Capt. Har rison, left Boston ?n Tuesday afternoon for Hali fax and Liverpool, with one hundred and twenty ni'sengers, forty thousand letters, six m agon loads of Heralds and o:her newspapers, and despatches for our ministers in London and Paris. Of the passengers, one hundred nnd eighteen proceed to Liverpool, and ol these, fifty-eight, or n-arly one half of the whole, are set down in the list us being from New York ; and it is said that every berth in the ship was taken, and that several applications for passage had to be denied. This is a significant (act, and it would not be a disagreeable piece of business to have a line of steam ships start from this port. We must, how ever, bide our time The Rhode Island Ki.ect.o:*.?We have re ceived returns from Providence. The law mid order, or Alg'rmr, candidate had a majority of 297 pver the Dorriteu ?h t.trr Kf-BCTtojt?!)?fAt.eArTox?.?Some of fhe present officers of the city are not acting, of late, in a manner which will at ali conri j<-e to their re election to power, on the Itth of April next. Our reader? will recollect the Alma Houae investigation, which took place a few month# aince, and resulied' in the discovery of the fact that bad oil and worse tea were purchased for the Alma Houae, at the ratea which should be paid for good article# of the kind Another interring aflatr, somewhat of the same nature, has of late taken place in the charging of Mack Oakley, superintendent of public building# with gross abuse in the discharge of his various da' ties. A communication to this effect waa received by die Board of Aldermen on Monday evening, from the Mayor. It appear# that Mr. Oakley baa been in the habit of receiving trifling sums, of five, en or twenty dollar#, from persons to whom he had E TT forci,yj?b?- I- b? examination e the Mayor, Oakley stated that these sums ere received as a recompense for the loan of mo ney# belonging to the city, which he had made to persons wishing to carry on contracts. It eeerns also that Mr. Oakley has kept his ac counts with the city literally in a very loose atate, upon pieces of paper, and with a pencil. IThe Mayor meet unhesitatingly declares his belief that Mr. Oakley had other account booka, winch have been kept out of eight. Mr Oakley was dismissed from his office by the Board of Aldermen. We shou d think the present Corporation had done enough to be able to retire upon their laurel# What with the A'ms House frauds, that of Mr. Oakley, "them gloves," and a variety of other small matters of the kind,we should think the people would be ful ly well satisfied of -heir capacity and honesty as public servants. The fourteenth of April will, we fear, make bad work with them. In the meantime, too much praise cannot be awarded to his honor the Mayor, who has not I feared to search out and expose these frauds, though ?' in his own party, but has dihgenijy done his work, an honest man and a faithful magistrate. Mav we never have a worse one. The Mayor has now till the 14th of May next to bring to hght more of these rascally frauds We presume by that time he will have the city caildron uretiy well cleaned out, so that the party who next come into power can have a clear field in which to i commence operations. Immigration during March -The following is the li.-t of arrivals from foreign ports in the month of March? From Ore.t Britain ? " Havre " Bremen . ..V.'.V ' " ' alo Rotterdam ???? " Hamburg " Other poi ta \\\ \\\ ' ' j ]j( Total paaaengera In the month of February only 770 passengers ar rived zn tins city from all foreign ports, making an increase for March of about five fold. Ia the present state of things between this coun try and Great Britain, whence a large portion of the emigrants come, these statistics are very interesting, i In one single month nesrly four thonsand p-rsens have left thetr homes and all the tender associations winch cling about it; have bidden adieu forever, probably, to their native noil, and have come with their wives, their little ones, their dollars and sinewy arms, to take up their abode in the repub lic of the United States. This amount of immigration will probably be very much increased during the ensuing summer.? i Owmg to the annexation of Texas, the probabl# I annexation of California ere long, and the prospect ! of the establishment of our claim to "the whole or none," a wide field for the settlement of emigrants j will be opened. The most fertile tracts of land in I those countries will be ready for selection, and the ! emigrant, if iudustrious and careful, wi.l, in a short ' time, find himself transported from the noisome, I daik and dangerous mine, or the confining manu factory, into a little Eden which has sprung up at the touch of his own hund. I If the commercial policy of Sir Robert Peel pre- j vails, we doubt not that great numbers of British Bettlers in Canada will leave that cold country and remove to the sunny climes of Texas, Oregon, or California, where they can cultivate wheat under much better auspices than at present, and be able to send it to England at as chenp rates of duty. The statistics of immigration during the present ' year will, in this view, be very interesting to the patriot, the man of the world, and the philosopher. Opening of tub Fashionable Season?Tub De mocracy in an Uproar.?We give, in another co lumn, xn account of ag and pitched battle between the barn-burners and the hunkers of the democratic party of Albany county. It was a terribly funny af fair. It appears that the harmonious democracy had as sembled at New Scotland to make nominations for delegates to the State Convention,when the old spite between the barn-burners and old hunkers broke out afresh; and the result was a general fight, in which the old hunkers were routed, with damaged heads and broken crockery. lathis delightful mt let Prince John Van Buren figured cotwpicuously, and likewise other gentlemen. When the rumnr reached the Legislature, Mr. Watson asked leave to offer a resolution, which was read, rs follows t? HonWJohrn V.n ihh* th?

So the resolutiou could not be received. The fact appears to be, that ihere ia no adhesive principle now a days in political parties; and until common honesty becomes more of a constituent clement in politics than it is at present, we may look for such disgraceful scenes as the above to be of frequent occurrence. What an admirable opportunity the whiga will now have to sweep the State at the next election! Will they understand how to manage their cards 1 We shall see. HtTDfo* Strbkt Rail Road.?The public would like to know what ia tha cause of the delay in making the report prepared by the committee of ! the Board ot Assistant Aldermen, upon this iropor- ? tant and necessary road. We understand the report is highly favorable, and it would be gratify ing to those interested to have it acted upon as soon as possible. Citizens living in the upper part ol the west side of the city, are entitled to a rail way, to facilitate travel to and from their re aidencrs, and for the purpose of doing away with the own.bus nuisance, which is getting to be almost . beyond endurance. Broadway is literally jammed full of these noisy, clumsy vehicles, and some mea sure must be soon adopted to reduce, or at least to prevent an increase of their number. There are two railways running into the very centre of Lon don, and the benefits the citizens of that city derive from these roads, may be inferrari from the f.ict ttiat, in 1315, more than twenty millions of passengers were conveyed over them. The shape and size of New York will soon require similar facilities lor getting from one end oi the city to the other. 09" The President of the United States has re cognized Edward R.

Tit* Right* cy Woim.?W# not long linoe took oeession to urge our view# reapeeting the re strictions iuij>osed upon the rights of married wo men by the ancient Engliih common law, which in moat of the States is still retained. Since the pub* lication ot that article, the Legislature of Ohio has passed an act lor the protection of the rights in question. Among other provisions we find the fol lowing, viz 1. The real estate of the wife, whether inherited, giv en or deviled by deed or in tiuit, is protected in ell form* ae&inst the creditors of the husband-not for the wit* only, but for lb* heirs of ber body. 3. The personal property, such a* stockr, money, Ius., (which the buiband has not actually converted to his own n??) is protected against his creditors. 3. The furniture and household goods, bought with money of the wife, or given, or devited to her own use, eaniint be taken lor debts contracted by the husband. 4. The interest of the husband in the estate of his wife cannot be conveyed, escept by deed, properly acknow ledged, lie. This set, however, does not take effect against the debts contracted during the marriage ?f ih* wife, and before tbe passage of this act Tiub is the progresa of the reform. Alabama, Kentucky, and Ohio have just ti ken ground for the defence ot the weaker sex agair ist the oppreaaions of avaricious husbands. What fitate will bs tbe next to advance in the cause of jty tice 1 The marriage tie is an honorable one, and conducive to the well being of society; but there can be no substantial reason why marriage shov Id beggar a woman by depriving ber of all right bo her own property, and placing it under t'ue sole control of her husband. All the propevty of the wife, whether real or per sonal, should be under the mufjpl regulation of both the parties to tbe maritalcontract. Women are pro bably capable of managing their own affairs, but they have very little chanoe to do so. Theatrical and Mu?lc;?l? ftaax Theatb*.?"

"Alexan der the Great," as produced lost night, is, in fact, cne of the most gorgeous and effective pageants we h:ive ever witnessed. Of the acting, we feel bound to speak in teima of unqualified praise. The character o! Alexander, in the hands of Mr Vaodenhoff, was as finely conceived as it was boautilully executed Mrs. Biand's Siatira, Mrs Abbott's Boxana. and Mr. Bar rv's ( lytuj.were allexcellent.
