It will contain maay of tho detail* of the settlement of the Ore gon (jueition, the progress of the war with Mexico, the lateat commercial intelligence from all parts of the Union, the Congressional proceedings of yesterday and the week previous, the lashionable, theatrical, and political news of the day. and the list of vessels in the principal American ar.J Canadian port?. public.'im will be, in wrappers, at one o>lock aud can be aer.t to all part? of Europe. Price, sixpence a copy I'll*; Or. tfon Trfaty. Wo understand tha a special messenger, pro bably Gen-ml A. mstrong, will leave for England this ilny ;i. the f unship Great Western, with the Oregon treaty. It w.ll probably be immediately ratified by the B risli Government. Wb have no doubt that the receipt of this im poitant will relieve our transatlantic friends of considerable anxiety and trouble, and be h tiled with delight u* the harbinger of a new or der of things. The peopie on both sides of the At lantic have onoe or twice been eatranged by ques tions ot difference that have brought them to the verge of war. These question* have at las' been ?jettled, and for the fti'Ure the bonds of good feel ing and amity will probably make them more as on<? community and one family. We congratulate the people of England that the voice of peace has triu m plied. Congressional Proceedings?The Tariff. Both Houses of Congress resumed business yes terday, but as usual accomplished nothing. In 'be Senate, tho expenses of the Mexican war, the military alfairs of tho country, and the patent bill wore under consideration, but after a short session the Senate went into Executive session. The principal points reviewed by those who took part in the debate, were the estimates of the war made by the government; and tho proposed plan elect ing general officers for the volunteers. In the House the debate was almost exclusively confined to the tariff, but after several speeches there was no quorum present, and an adjourn ment was forced upon those remaining. There has been no measure before either House of Con gress, for yeurs, which has'been so much harped upon as the tariff, and it is not surprising that the members are sick of listening to the old, worn out arguments for, or against, the modifications pro posed. We have no doubt several weeks will be used up m discussing this bUl, as it will be necessary for every member to make some movement for homo consumption. The House is at this mo ment better prepared to take a vote on and dis. pose ol this endless subject now, than it will be weeks hence. The greater the delay and the more extended the debate, the greater the uncertainty in relation to any changes being made in the ex isting system. This subject has been so long bo fore the people, that every politician, of any expe rience at all,must be perfectly conversant with tho matter from one end to the other, and it is a wa?te of time and treasure to procrastinate. The .'act is we want Congress to adjourn. We want to get over this session, and then we can form some idea where we are and what we have done; but so long as the session lasts, everything con nected with public atlairs will bo in an unsettled, feverish stare, which will prevent all classes from reaping the benefits of those measures, both poli tical and commercial, which have been perfected. It would be very satisfactory to tbe public geno ally, if both Houses of Congress would settle upon some day to adjourn. All could then have some data to go upon, in making their arrangements. At present all is dark and doubtful. We have been kept in hot water about seven months, and would like a chance to cool off a little. There is some cousolation in the belief that dog days will scatter the members, and some satisfaction in the fact that Washington is several degrees south of this city, and that when it is comfortably warm h#re, it is boiling over there. ? The Position of the United States of Ame rica?lis Progress to Greatness?Its Kle. ?wiits of Success. What is the next move ? This is a quostion we hear proj>onnded on eve ry corner of our streets, discussed with equal ?eel by politicians, by commercial men, and by agriculturists. It is a theme for every newspaper and periodical throughout the length and breadth of the land, from the White Mountains of the ?-ast, to the Rio Grande of the South. Let us look into the past, and then cast a glance at the future. Texas is annexed, with a territory equal in extent, perhaps, to that of France, and in climate aud soil unequalled in tho world. This gives to the Union twenty-eight States each one of which is an empire of itself, separate,' djsunct, independent, in all of their local affairs ? and yet united-bound together as with bands of ron, ar delegating to a central government all power necessary to secure harmony and unity of acnon towards all the foreign powers of the ?arth. It is a union not of force, but of affectum, of love, for the possession of equal benefits and ngbte, jusdy secured to each and all ^To this galaxy of States, two more-Iowa and lT,w~0,;Ved fr?m the interminable and prolific \V est, eqpai ,n extent to the Inland of ^reat Britain, are at this moment forming a con Zn Tr U,em*>lv<v'' antl the next ses .TwlT'';knock at thedo?"of,hp two 1 admi,tanc? into the Union, as of (h ,nK7; UK'! not t,,e honored, sisters They W'11 * ??ved, and with , ?1 ~ r?" and R?*Pr"?entatives, will aid TwT^K Je"tinie" ofou' common country. ; hmr. ,ifrf ,h? 1' shedd,n* the,r bri?ht uTltS? ^ * y0< *e rePublic throughout j We 'n lh?

If the English govern ment are satisfied with this, surely we ere, more especially as she has always steadfastly ad hered to the channel of the Columbia, below us southern branch as the dividing line. They have now relinquished nearly three degrees of latitude north of this, and left all that it desirable for culti vation and settlement, together with one ot the noblest rivers and finest harbors?the mouth of tho Columbia?in the wo .Id, for our own use and benefit. While the thanks of the whole oountry are due to the administration for securing this, we cannot withhold our meed of praise to the British cabinet, for so honorably relinquishing what they deemed their own soil. The Oregon territory pro per is now our own. "The whole or none was the word, and the whole is secured, for the coun try i\b?ve the 49th pnrellel is drained, not by the Columbia, but by Froaer's river ; a river conce ded to have been discovered, appropriated, and settled upon by the Biitish, and known as New Caledonia. Here then we have a territory, sufficient in ex tent for five or six of the largest size-' States, into which our population will llow ns steadily as the waters of the Columbia flow into the Pacific. Our difficulties with Mexioo must soon oome to an end, when our boundaries on the Pacific ocean will be marked by the 49th parallel on the north, down to the 36th south, including, of course, Cah lbmia. This is inevitable-no power on earth can prevent it?no power could resist the im petuous rush of the free and hardy sons of this Republic, voluntarily, to secure our oft-acknow ledged, but as often deferred, rights from Mexioo. Fo^this purpose, the whole country appears as one vast encampment. Twenty-five thousand men were deemed suffi cient to conquer a lasting peace. Besides our re - gular army, which has been increased to 15,000, Congress has placed an additional force of volun teers, not exceeding fifty thousand men, at the disposal of the President. Already, ere the news lias reached the capital of Mexico, it is estimated that seventy thousand men have volunteered their services lor this patriotic work, and the great dif ficulty the Governors of the several states have labored ander, was not in raising their respective quotas, but in restraining them?in keeping back the torrent which poured in at the ?rst tap of the drum. . Ohio was called upon for thirty companies. In less than twenty days thirty-eight full companies were in Camp Washington, at Columbus, eight of which, by proclamation of the Governor, of course, disbanded and sent back to their homes, and further enrollments ordered to be suspended. r Threo thousand men were called for from Ken tucky. Ten thousand answered to the call in less than two weeks time. Twenty-five hundred was demanded from Louisiana. She had forty-five hundred under marching orders before instructions from Wash ington could reach New Orleans " to suspend action." So throughout the North, the South, tho East, and tho West. Let but the war bugle sound, and a million of men, if required, woul rise up m arms fully equipped, with rifle in hand and ready far the fray. To the ears and eyes of Europeans this may appear strange,but it is true, nevertheless. We leave the big broad fact to them for comments. They can draw their own inferences. Our Republic is free; and the effect of this freedom is seen in more ways than one. But we would ask, under this state of things, what be comes of M. Guizot's " balance of power " prin ciple upon this continent 1 Our navv, too, is springing into existence with the rapidity of a fact over the lightning line. W e have now afloat and in serv ice about seventy vea | sels of war, of all classes. There are at the dit l ferent navy yards, in a great state of forwardness 1 about thirty vessels of war, of all sizes, several of which are to be launched in the coming week, which, together with the ten additional war ? steamers for whish a bill is now before Congress, I make us at least respectable in this arm ol I defence. At the navy yard in Brooklyn, about 1000 men are achvely employed ; at Boston, about 6005 at Portsmouth, 400 ; at Philadelphia, 600 ; at Norfolk, BOO: at Pensacola, 300 or three ' thousand four hundred in all-preparing wooden walls, for fearless hearts and iron hands to man. Where, wo would again ask, is M. Guizot's ba , lance of power 1 We leave this subject, as we. commenced it? with the question, what is the next move T Steam Navigation?It is said that the Provi dence and Stonington lines are to be mude into one ?the magnificent Oregon is hereafter to run with the splendid Massachusetts for one company, Stonington is to be their eastern terminus; fare, four dollars, instead of two. The Roger Williams, a very fine boat, we be lieve?as good a boat, we suppose, as Roger Williams was a mau?is to run on the North Ri ver. She has lately been on the Newport and Pro vidence route. Several new and splendid steamers, for Sound and River navigation, are nearly ready for service. The new steamers push by the old boats, as loco motives do by the old mail-stages. The New Republic of Rio Grande.?We give in another part of this days' paper, the leading ar ticle of the new American journal at Matamoras, called the Rtpublic of Rio Grande. The article is well written and displays talent of a respectable kind. The object of the editor is plain and above board, and expressed with a great deal of fearless ness. Thr publication of this paper may be rank ed as an omen full of meaning. The editor is Gen. H. McLeod, a graduate of West Point, and tor many years in the service of Texas. We be lieve he headed the Santa F* expedition. Steamship Great Wests**.?1This noble steam er, commanded by the popular Captain Mat thews, will sail to-day at three o'clock, with near ly one hundred passengers. We understand that upwards of ninety names are already on her books, and this number will undoubtedly be in creased to-day. It is said that General Armstrong, our much respected Consul for Liverpool, returns to England in her. Signs.?Taylor songs, a In Harrison songs, are beginning to be heard in different parts of the Union. Conviction or Wyatt.?This man, lately on trial in Auburn for murder, wm found guilty on , Tuesday last, and was probably sentenced yes terday. WtUrlng PImm. Among the many natural blessing* with which this country Is fsvorsd, there is none (raster than the many watering places that abound, and which ar? resorted to , Id naiBtr, by thoee who daalra frash invigorating air, j and a relaxation from tha carat and anxieties of business. j Among tha nod favored places of summer resort, are fcchoo ley's Mountain, la New Jersey, aeohem's Head, on the Sound, about eighteen miles from Now Haven; and Nsw Lebanon Springs, where Mr. Hall has opened Co lumbia Hall for the recaption of visiters. Besides Ihote that wa hare mentioned, there are Niagara Kails, Barr I toga Springs, Rirhl and Springs,Fort Hamilton,New Brigh ' toa, Long Braneh.Rookaway, ( ape May, tha White Sol- | phur Springs of Ylrgin a, ead many others. The many ad vantages to those in delicate health, offered by the do- ' Ughtful bracing air of these ? storing places, should not be overlooked by those who caa escape during the dog days from tha heat, duet, and polluted air of tha city. AU the old Mormon police, sixty or se venty in number, h;ivc returned to Nau voo Their object is not kuowa, but since their return, there hsa been a great increase of thefts. It is reported that a farnler in the north of the county, last weak, ' * hila hunting for his cattle whioh had bean stolen, found i secretod on the island north of Nauvoo, forty roke of ' cattle.

RKMILIO DE LA VBQA, The Captive Mexican General. The above sketch is engraved from a daguer reotype, now in oar possession, of this distin guished officer, taken by a gentleman in New Orleans. General Vega has attained great distinction ai a soldier. lie has fought with honor in many engagements, and has been identified with the history of his country for several years. He fought, we believe, with the rank of Colonel, at ihe battle of San Jacinto, and was taken prisoner in the battle of the 9th May, at Rosaca de la Pal ma, in the act of discharging a pieoe of artillery. He was captured by the dashing Captain May, ol the dragoons. The General is, we understand, about to visit New York; nnd he, no doubt, will be as much struck at the size and extent of the city, as our citizens will be delighted to have an opportunity of showing the hospitality of New Yorkers to a distinguished stranger. Theatrical and Manic at. Park Tiikatrh;.?Mt. Dan Marble continues to be the ! ?tar of attraction at thii establishment. Last evening be appeared in three pieces before a tolerably well filled house. Mr. Marble nover played to better advantage 1 than he did last evening, and the characters he perform- i ed appeared to be peculiarly well adapted to hjs talent, j These were 8am Patch, in the drama of "Sam Patch in France Deuteronomy Dutiful, in "The Vermont Wool Dealer:" and William, in "Black Lyed Susan." The same bill ia offered this evening. Bowebt Theatre.?Wo hare rarely seen such a galaxy of fashion and beauty, as crowded within the { walls of the Bowery Theatre last night, upon the occa. ' aion of the complimentary benefit of Mr. Scott. The parts were all admirably auatained, and every thing paaced off with great eclnt. At the close of the performance, he ' was enthusiastically called before the curtain, and we onlv regret that owing to the lateness of the hour at which we write this report, wo are unable to give Ma very appropriate remarks, it is generally understood | that be will aoon depart for Europe. The best wishes of . his countrymen attend him. This evening will be play ed the " Wizard of the Wave," and the " Spectre Bride- I groom." Ohiekwich.?This beautiful theatre ia in the full tide j of aucceas. Mr. Freer has just got the right company together, and there ia no doubt he will succeed in hia entorpriae. He puts his pieces well on the stage, and the scenery and cestumes are very respectable. This evening Miss Crawford makes her dttut as Paulino, in ; the "Lady of Lyona." Mr. Henkins appearing as Clause j Melnotte. The performances will conclude with the i nautical drama of " Black Eyed Susan," in which Mr. Freer, Mr. Denniaon, and Mrs. Penson appear. Castle OAaosn.?This enchanting and delicious spot ia receiving the attention it deserves, and the proprietors may confidently expect to receive the patronage which their exortions to please and amuse the public deserve, it must be admitted that the orchestra in this establish ment is one of the l>est in the city, while the luxury of an ocean breeze can be enjoy cd in no other place. Hf.rr Ale**nd?-?.?The performances of this unrlval led magician, last evening, were of a most interesting character. The pupils ot the Mechanics'institute were present, and we never saw a moro delighted audience ? The children were in ecstacies of delight at the many skiliul experiments in natural magic performed by Ilerr Alexander, with masterly success, and they testified ' their unbounded gratification in shouts of appUuse. The lighting all the candles, apparently by tiring off a pistol, caused them a great deal ot surprise, and no doubt will < give rise to many experiments in eleotricityj as they I evidently attributed it to the use of that power. These i scientific exhibitions aro highly instructive and interest ! ing, as well to adults as to children. This evening the benefit of the Masonic Widows' and Orphans' Asylum is to oome off, and the Orand Lodge is to attend in lull re galia. The Alle<;ha:?ia?<s.?A large and highly respectable audience attended the concert of thes* vocalists last evening, and we may truly say that never was an audi ence more delighted with their entertainment. The ui timate success of this band of vocalists is now unques tionable, and they really deseive it, as their sinking merit* the highest praibe. It is truly the "harmony of sweet sounds.'' Mr Buland's fine voice told well, *'i' it wns evident the company had practised much togblliT, a* they harmonized exceedingly well. They will be come as popular as the Hutcnuuon family. De Meyer was to give his farewell concert at Cincinna ti, on the *J3d inst. Mr. Dempster was to give a concert in Buffalo on the 33d. Mr. Templeton gave a concert in Boston llast eve ning Some of the most respectable citizens of Chicago ad dressed a letter te Mr. llurke. the violinist, while iu Mil waukee, inviting nim to visit their city. He promised compliance, ana gave a concert in Chicago on Monday last. Signora Pico gave a concert in New Harven on Tuea day evening.

Mr. W iisLew opposed the motion. He *aid he doubted the propriety of making references of thi* *ort to the County Muoerintendent, he wa* not an officer of thi* Board, nor bound to obey ita behosts, and was already burdened with business in his official character, and he had not and could not havr > better opportunity of obtain ing information on the subjoct relerred to him, than a committee of thi* Board.
