HIGHLY IMPORTANT INTELLIGENCE FROM jWASHINGTON, THE PRELIMINARY SETTLEMENT OF THE ^OREGON {.QUESTION zxr IBS IBVAVS. THE GREAT QUESTION OF THE DAY. The great question of the session is settled.? The Senate have saved the country from a war, and secured an honorable adjudication ol a much vexed question. The Senate lias given the advice, relative to the Oregon question, to the President by the consti tutional majority, and a treaty will immediately be framed on the terms offered by Great Britain. The vote was 38 ayes to 12 nays. Mr. Corwin was absent from sickness. Mr. Burrow and Mr. Crittenden absent in Virginia. A fourth whig vote could have been obtained if it hud been necessa ry. Mr. Atchison did not vote, and Mr. Bright was absent. This intelligence will send a thrill of pleasure throughout the length and breadth of the Union. In relation to the above, we take the following from the Washington Union of Friday night:? Kr mors.?It ii rumored over this city, though we have no official authority for the statement, and will not vouch for the truth of it, that the 8c nate of the Lnited States has been engaged in closed doors for three days pa?t on a message from the President of the United State*, con sulting them about the propriety of accepting terms^pro posed bv Mr. Pakenham for thj adjustment or the Oregon 'mention. There are dilferont rumors about the pro cue character of the proposition. It Is said ??nate Washington this evening, imm?4Utly altar the senate ailiourned at 6 o'clock, that they advised the President to accept the proposition by a vote of 3# to >*! We cannot consent to keep these important rumors from although we hare no official evidence for them, and have had no sort of communication upon this wntwlthaDy member either of the Senate or of the adin.nis rationi_ We understand that the Senate adjourned over till Mon day. I'lie Vote on the Oregon (Question. Philadelphia, June 13, 1846. The vote in the Senate, advising the President to compiomise the Oregon controversy, is as fol lows : Yeas?Messrs. Archer, Ashley, Benton, Bern en, Bagby, J. M. Clayton, T. Clayton, Calhoun, Cameron, Colquitt, tfix, Dayton, Davis Evans, Green, Gen. Houston.

Nays?Messrs. Allen, Atchison, Atherton, Breese, Cass, Dickinson, Jeness, tairfield, Stur geon, Semple?10. Mr. Hannegan refused to vote, and Messrs. Bar row, Chalmers, Crittenden, Corwin, Bright, Westcott, Upliam?7. Washington, June 12??iP. M. The Ore eon Question?The Courte of the Senate. 1 did not write, because my own judgment was n doubt ns to important matters connected wittt the great question, which is now pending. ince then, I have conferred personally with more than twenty Senators and can now speak with more confidence. ? , , . ? The terms before the benate, though not in orm, are substantially the ultimatum of the rSn tish ministry. They were not put in shape, be cause Sir Robert Peel did not desire to embarrass his successor with any committal to his policy, or to leave the responsibility of a war upon the shoul ders of his friend, if one should grow out ol it. Last night a good feeling prevailed as to the re sult?had a vote been taken yesterday, the two thirds could have been obtained, but one difficul ty is now to be apprehended, and that is as to the amendments which may be otlered. This may be news to the country, but mtorma tion is in possession of tho Senate, showing that Sir Robert Peel will probably resign within thirty days. A portion of the tones have signified to Lord John Russell and his friends, they will form a coalition to expel the ministry whenever they are ready. Sir Robert is opposed to this condi tion of things, and will be apt to take the Home Labor Bill, as the chance to declare himself lully, and to relinquish the Premiership. Great Britain asks for the navigation of the Co lumbia river during the charter oft he Hudson s Bay Company, which expires in 1863, (and not in 18S3, as you printed me.) Some Senators fear this stipulation would cover a renewal of the charter. The legal opinion is that it would not. Those who raise the objection desire to insert a clause to that effect. This would involve the ne cessity of returning the proposition to England ; for Mr. Pakenham's hands are tied as to any a - teration. This difficulty will, I hope be obviated The proposition of England submits, that her privilege of navigating the Columbia never shall be subject to the United States laws of naviga tion and revenue, now in existence, but no farther restriction shall be imposed without the reierence to this right. The article stipulating for remu neration for British settlement below the line ol 49 deg , provides ior compensation for any Ame rican province North of it. The following is the most reliable account ol the opposition as it now stands : Messrs. Fair field, Atherton, Dickinson, Sturgeon, Cameron, Cass, Atchinson, Breese, Semple, Allen and Han negan, and Mr. Bright also, but he is still absent in Virginia, and is not expeated before Monday. The following are doubtful -. Messrs. Bagby, Turney, Westcott and Simmons. 1 he last will probably go right on the great struggle. Mr.Barrow and Mr. Crittenden are absent at Portress Monroe, and will not return before Monday. Mr.Lvans is ex pected back to-day, and then the i^enate is ac counted for as lull.

The fifty-four forties declnre open war upon the Administration.

Washington, June 12, 1846. Jucunda rtrum vicinitudo?Jxicundum cognitu at que awl the?Hnzsah ! Yes, indeed. They are going to do it. There was a very strong report in town to-night at the adjournment of the Senate, that they had agreed to advise tha President affirmatively upon the protocol of Mr. Pakenham?33 to 10. Adjourned over to Monday. Certes, when the question comes to the proposition of Mr. Pakenhani or nothing, tho following will be about the strength of that irresistible radical combination in tho Senate, which threatened in less than six months to hurry the nation, noltnt volent, into a contest with the whole civilized world, upon the question of the annexation, instanter, ol the entire Ameri can continent, with a most awful squinting at Hayti and the Island of Cuba?the following will be ?he vote against oonceding New Caledonia itnd Frazer's river to be the rightful projierty by occupation and settlement of her Britannic Majes ty's subjects, to wit:? Messrs. Allen, who says the only impediment to a ?ettleinent will bn that the American Senate may insist on the British government taking more than Mr. Pakenham is willing to accept?Cass, who is supposed to be repentant, notwithstand ing his late uncompromising attitude?Hanne gan, the most consistent, and unquestionably a sincere believer in our title to the Russian Breese, who took his position in obedience to Illi nois, without presuming to more knowledge than his constituents?Semple, who, after the endorse ment of Mr. Gilpin's rhapsodies upon our " un transacted do?tiny," i? bound to stand up to 54 40 ?Cameron, who is pledged to sustain the August letter of M". Buchanan?Fairfield, who has gone too far to recede {vide the ten war steamer?)? Atherton and Jenncss, from indignation at the Northeastern boundary being settled by Mr. Webster?and our vigilant Senator Dickinson, who, since his onslaught with the orator or Marshfteld, has become a champion with the ad vocates of the " whole or none. Atchison is doubtful. He is a man of calcula tion, though a filly-four man. Westcott is "mighty unsartin. He lias a way of his own upon all questions. Ashley, we think, will go the treaty. If the Senate were full the vote would be most probably 45 to 11, allowing two of the doubtful to fo with tin- majority; the minority, however, may >e reduced to seven, and thus will end the clamor of 54 40. Truly may we say in the language of old Bullion, "Oh mountain, that was delivered of a mouse, henceforth thy name is 54 40." Thit treaty will bring the Mexicans at once to terms The following paragraph throws consi I derable illumination upon this point. It from a lata letter from Mexico:? " A letter from Tepic, dated the 'J6th of April, Myi that Admiral Seymour, whose arrival at Mazatlan we have announced, ii concentrating at that port a fleet which will consist of the Collingwood, of 80 guns; the America and Grampus, of SO gun? each, and (even other veisela of war of smaller class, but which will carry the total of the gun. of that fleet up to 340. The Admiral has be sides four steamers at hia disposal. The Mexicans argue from this large force that England is sure to declare war on the Oregon question. Tnii idea ha? been a favorite one with them all aloug, and i* certainly influencing their hope* cf success in the war with u?." Tlie Oregon Treaty will dispel this illusion, anil show the Mexican Government, that a speedy peace or a speedy extinction are the only alterna tives from which to make a selection. It is indeed surmised that Mr. Pakenham, after the settlement of the Oregon question, will propose his mediation between the United States and Mexico. But there will be no necessity for it, nor do we suppose that without advisement he will hastily interfere. We take occasion to announce, for reliable in. formation, the indomitable bravery of Hon. Seth Barton, Solicitor of the Treasury, in a great vic tory he has recently achieved over a messenger in his department. John Pnillips, the messenger of Chas. B. Penrose, w&s retained, of course, by Mr. Barton, while his own confirmation was held in abeyance : but after the Senate had approved him, there being no further dnnger of "a lire in his rear," he boldly ejected Mr. Phil lips and uppointed a Mr. Isaac Ankeny, of Car lisle, Pa., in his place. Salary $500 a year. For the moral courage exhibited in this removal, Mr. Barton will stand exalted by an admiring posteri ty. Examples like this are well adapted to shed undying lustre over the history of this administra tion. Our private opinion is, that it was an ex ceedingly small potntse proceeding. Mr. Bancroft has done nothing quite so small as this, though we regard his prosecution of Captain Voorhees as a persecution, unjustified and unmerited, if not absolutely tyrannical. We shall probably have to begin soon to scour up our old armor, and to take into hand certain detergent olficials, in a manner that will contri bute somewhat to the public service. We learn that Kane of the "Kane letter," has

succeeded to the place of Randall as District Judge of Philadelphia, and that he is nominated for tne office. TWENTY-NINTH CONOKK8S. In Nenate. Washington, June IS, 1840. ilONIFICANT MOVrMtJtT. Mr. Allen submitted a resolution that the 40th rule of the Senate, which require* that in consideration of exe cutive business, the door* of the Senate shall he closed agajnst the public, be rescinded, and that the door* of the Senate shall bo open during the session of the Sen ate, upon any buiineai whatsoever.

The bill for indemnification of Kl^f^h White, lato Sub-In dian Agent in Oregon, for a robbery which ho suffered from the I'awnee Indians, while journeying from Oregon across the prairies, on his way to Washington, was this morning taken up on the question of its Anal passage, and rejected? 2*2 to 45. The ground of the rejection of the bill is that Dr. White was not travelling under the authority of the gov ernment at the time of tne robbery, but on his own pri vate responsibility. FORT BIOWK?PALO ALTO, AM) RESACA DE LA PALMA. Two messages were reported from the President, ono of an Executive character, and one covering detailed oftloiul despatches of the recent splendid operations of the army on the Rio Grande, under General Taylor. Order ed to be printed. Mr. Ashley reported a bill which was supposed to have a bearing in regard to " those bonds." A lot of private cases wero disposed of. The supplemental army bill, with the agreement of the House to certain amendments of the Senate, and its dis agreement to others, was reported. The matters in is sue will therefore be left to a committeo of conference, and when their report shall have been agreed upon, wo shall give you the bill as finally passed. MORE HOOKS. A joint resolution reported from the Judiciary Com mittee by Mr. Ashley, providing for the purchase and distribution of certain law books among the States, com ing up? Mr. advocated the measuro, upon the general Eround of the utility to the people of these books ; and scause some thirteen States had given instructions, or requests, equivalent to instructions, for the distribution proposed. Mr. Benton was oppoaed to the whole schemo. And the idea that instructions from the State Legislatures upon the subject of buying books of a bookseller to distribute among the lawyers, was preposterous. The great right of instruction was intended for great princi ples, and not to be used in a book speculation. This it a bill, sir, buying books of a bookseller, to give away among the lawyers. Last year we printed a largo extra quantity of a book for the farmers; and this year wo were called upon to print another of the same sort, and we wero told that it would be of the same size. But it turns out to be double tho size. And the profits from the printing of that book exceed the profits of the best farm in Arkansas or Misiouri for a life time?a farm in Mis souri, with a hundred slaves upon it, would not yield a tithe of the profit of the extra printing of this single book. (Report of the Patent Office.) No, kir, a turm of u hundred sluves, would hardly make as much money in u life time. Having thus distributed books to the farmers, we come now to the lawyers?next we suppose the phy sicians will come in for a share, and so all professions in their turn, air. Mr. Sevier.?And a nautical almanac. Mr. Benton.?Yea, sir, my friend says a nautical alma nac. We shall next publisn a nautical almanac. Now for fifteen year* 1 have made war on this book-printing? this promiscuous printing, sir?and tho old members havo found it out; but then the new members are always ap plied to by these book men. They get hold of them, sir. As for myself, 1 believe I am regarded as the tx-officio guardian of these measures. I was juit now, air, sitting out there u|>on the sofa, when the Senator from Arkansas came out and touched me upon tho shoulder, and said that one of my bills was up. [Here Mr. Sevier com menced laughing, and continued as if his tides were splitting.] It is called one of my bills, sir. The Senator may laugh for the burden of proof is against me. 1 have learned of one of these book transactions, which illus trates this business to some extent. A member of Con gress?1 shant give you his name, sir, sold out his rever sionary right, sir, to a book, the extent of the printing of which no man can tell?he sold out his right, sir, estima ted, at least, at >220, tor ton dollars in hand?cash in hand, lie sold out at the other end of the avenue for ten dollars. The abuse of this book business is as scandalous as it is notorious, and as notorious as it is scandalous. You may take it backwards or forwards, sir. 1 do hope and trust in Ood that we shall stop this business. As to instruc tions from the.States lor parcels of books?State Legisla tures instructing the National Legislature?if they un dertake to instruct me, i would demur?if any instruc tions come to me about a book I have never seen, I shall put in a demurrer. Mr. Allen moved to lay the wholo on tbe table. Mr. Benton?Never to riae again. Mr. Ashley appealed that the motion be withdrawn, in order to some reply to the remarks ot the Senator from Missouri. Mr. BsaaiEN seconded this appeal, as a member of the judiciary committoe from which the resolution emana ted, providing lor thia purchase and distributions of the laws, lie. Mr. Allen in deference to the request of the Senator withdrew the motion, to renew at the earliest opportu nity. * Mr. Berrien waived his remarks upon the subject for the present, and moved an Executive Session.

Mr. Haralson remarked that, having noticed a certain artiele in the Ulobt of yesterday?[A voice?" The Uniin, you mean"j?he thought it nocessary to make an explanation somewhat personal, and in which every member ol the Military Committoe was implicated or in terested. The editorial to which bo alluded, in comment ing on a letter Irom lien. Taylor, dated tue 18th of May, sa>*:?" It will be seen from th.i letter, that it was very uuiortunate that he was not supplied with a ponton train whicli wothl have enabled him to pursue the enemy across the Rio (Jrande, and greatly improve the results of his victory. Having made enquiry on the subject,wo have ascertained that u was a source of no less regret to the War Department than to lien. Taylor, that it possess ed neither tne power nor the means of providing him with such a train. Its great uselulness and unpoitance in military operations, has, we understand, been long known to the Department, and various efforts have been made to induce Congress to make provision for it. * * * * This . ecoinin?ndation was follow ed up by earnest and repeated efforts by the Depart ment to induce its sanction by Congiese; and tho Secretary of War no Itn than thru timet, in thu early part ol the session, addressed the appropriate com mittee on the subject, urging tbe importance t>l this mea sure and reminding them that the General, commanding the army in Texas, had called lor this essential uqui|> nicnt to his miiitaiy operations," etc. Now, he did not wish to trespass on the detail* ol thu Secretary ol War, and he would willingly concede that the secietary had discharged his duty on the subject, but he was unw tiling that it should l>e done at the expense of the Committee on Military Affairs.

The House took up the bill supplemental to the art for prosecuting the war existing between the United States and the Republic of Mexico ; and acted on tho amendments which had been disagreed to by the Senate. The House refused to recede from its amendment to the first section, viz : " Provided, That when tho war with Mexico shall ter minate, the number of major generals in tho army shall bo reduced to one. and the number of brigadier generals shall be reduced to two ; and tho President of tho United State* is authorized and directed to select from the whole number which may then be in office, without regard to the date of their commission*, the number to be retained, and catue the remainder to be discharged from the ser ?ice of the United State*."

The Select Committee appointed to inquire how cer tain information was obtained by the Hon. C. J. Inger soil, from papers and accounts in the State Department, which the Trusi4ent declined to submit to the House, re port : that immediately aftor thoir appointment, they proceeded to make the investigation, and have been assiduously engaged ever since in the performance of the duty. They applied to all sources for information, and examined witnesses able to throw light on the sub ject, and submit the result in a mass of testimony. After much consideration the committee present the evidence, without stating their conclusions, which can be adduced by the House itself from the testimony ; and, therefore, they deem it most proper to forbear any comment what ever. They leave it to the House to take such order and action in the premises as occasion may seem to require, and present a full record of all their proceedings and the testimony taken. Inasmuch as some portion implicates one or more subordinates in the State Department, as to permitting access to the rccordi, the committee propose that a copy of the report and testimony, when printed, be furnished the President and the Secretary of State The resolution was again read.

Had the abuse been cast upon the individual who has the pleasure of being the author of the letters referred to, not ono word would have boon said in rela tion to the subject-, and I only make this mention to in duce them to pick their flints and try again, but first to know who they are firing at before fixing their aim. I M. P. Mitchell, Ksq , the present proprietor of the U States Hotel, gave a handsome entertainment this morn ing, to the members of the press, and his friend*. He en tered on the proprietorship on Wednesday laat, and the house-warming of to-day was in commemoration of th? event. He promises to bo an extremely popular hoat, both from hit manners being those of a polished gentle man, and the prompt attention to the wants of his guests, which he inculcates to the undeilings in his service.? Mr. West, late of the Kxchangc Hotel, Baltimore, asso ciated with Mr. Mitchell, is so well known to the travel ling community, that little need be said of his abilities to oversee the department placed under his charge. Tha furniture of the ladies' parlor has been furnished by Mr. Crawford Riddle, and is magnificent?it surpasses all that can lie seen in this city. Tho steamboat Rip Van Winkle, Capt. Fury, from your city, arrived hero yesterday, and will soon commonca her trips to Cajie May, which are to continue throughout the bathing season. There is to he considerable compe tition, this season, among the Cape May boats. The Bal timore line are to have two boats on, the Ohio and Goo. Washington ; and the Portsmouth, Ca^. Devoe, will ma as asual. * The report of the nomination And confirmation of John K. Kane, Ksq , as Judge of the (J. 8. Circuit Court, as re ported yesterday, seems not to have much foundation-, at least it needs confirmation. Tho latest rumor, raised through mischief, however, is to the effect, that J. 8. Cohen, En., the present Prothonotary of the District Court, had been nominated bv the President The mem bers of the bar, and others, have l>een quizzing Mr. Cohen all the morning bv congratulating him upon tho honor conferred. He takes the juke quite coolly, how ever, and blames Major Christy as being the author of the report, in revenge for a jmn he had perpetrated ? Speaking of the probability or tho Major's going into service tinder General Taylor, in the Mexican army, ho thought his friend should be posted at Corpus Christi, but whether or not, he would advise him to take care of his corpus. Some excitement was occasioned in Southwark and Moyamensing, yesterday afternoon, by the arrests muda by the police ol the former district, at the fire, of which 1 inlormed you. The persons who were arrested, con tending that the Superintendent of Police had exceeded his authority in tuking them in custody without any vio lation of law having been committed on their |>art, after they had been released on bail, in turn sued hiin for as sault and battery, and false arrest*. The arrest of Arohy t oi/cm, whose name alone has sufficed to scare the row dy boy* for many years past, was an arreat which affor ded extreme gratification, and hi* progresa from ono Al derman's office to another, wax attended by a large reti nue. He was held to bail by Aldorman Fletcher, of Moy amensing. to answer at Court the charges preferred against him.
