A? the anniversary of American independence will this year come on Saturday,we shall issue our regular weekly paper on Friday morning, so that every person connected with this establishment may participate in the festivities of the day. The Weekly will contain, as usual,the latest and most important news from Texas, Mexico, and perhaps Ironi Europe, and will be illustrated with aii engraving representing tUe Rancherosof Mexico in their native costume, and in all their wild- ' ness, pursuing buil'alo on the great prairies of Northern Mexico; and ? magnificent scene re pre- j seating llerr Alexander performing one of his , most mysterious feats.

It is very probable that she will bring us soine tidings of the reception in England and France of the news of the battles of Polo Alto and Resacn de la Palma. It will be cnrious to read what is said of them. Tltc Proceedings In Congress. There were the usual proceedings in Congress yesterday. The Senate was occupied with the volunteer anil one or two other bills,and the Honse with the tariff. Each member of the House will have something to say about tlio tariff, the price of calico, and the effect of a duty on a cup of coffee. We believe that the most interesting and popular movement that Congress could make would be to adjourn. Highly Important from Washington?Movements of the Cut holies?Our Mexican Relations. Wo promised yesterday, to make some interesting disclosures regarding certain negotiations that have been lor some time pending between Bishop Hughes and the Cabinei at Washington. We now hasten to lay them before our readers, premising that they come from an authentic *ource, and that they may be relied upon with confidence. Shortly before tho meeting of the Catholic Council at Baltimore, in May last, a report was prevalent that general Taylor had constrained the Catholic sOTaiers in the army, (eleven hundred in number, of a force of fifteen hundred,) to attend the instructions of a Presbyterian minister. This report became the subject of comment and discussion among the liishops at the council ; and it was proposed, we believe, by Bishop Hughes, that a deputation of tho body should wait upon the President in relation to it; and at the tame time to propose to him to send out Bishop Hughes himself, with a suite of clergy 01 me ?econa order, 10 treat wim tue Mexicans. Jn tlue time, after the adjournment of the council, the deputation waited upon the President at Washington, and the proposal was made in lorm_ The President was struck with the idea; and calling his Cabinet together, laid before them the proposal of the Bishops. The demand of the latter was, that Bishop Hughes should be <cntout, with full powers, in the light of a plenipotentiary, to treat of the matter* in dispute between our government and that of Mexico. That he and his suite should be despatched to Vera Cruz, in a United States frigate, and should have such further conduct to the capital, as comported with the office of a Minister Plenipotentiary. The object which the Bishop proposed to effect was to dissipate the prejudices of the Mexican people towards the United States, and to disabuse the minds of the clergy, and through them, of the people, of the error which the military despots of Mexico have taken pains to disseminate, that the Americans, should they be fillowed to gain the "lightest foothold on Mexican soil, would burn their churches and overturn the Catholic religion. The Bishop further hoped, through his influence as a Catholic Bishop, and his high oltice as Minis ter Plenipotentiary of the United States, to effect a renewal of peaceful relations between the two countries, on terms honorable to both. This proposition was entertained and discussed I at a Cabinet Council, and it received the approval of nearly all present, we believe, except Mr. Polk. He too was favorably inclined towards it, but was fearful that such an arrangement would give rise to an anti-Catholic prejudice throughout the country, that might possibly result in scenes of bloodshed, like the Philadelphia riots?a consequence which he was desirous to avoid. Besides, the members of the Cabinet, although in favor of the plan, were not altogether clear about despatching the Bishop in a frigate., and with the pomp he desired. The proposition was, therefore, declined for a time. The Bishops, who were at this time staying, if we mistake not, in Georgetown College, thereupon held another consultation, tin- result of which ^ was, that they again waited on the President and , ? offered to send five chaplains to the army?two [ from Georgetown College, two from an establishment of Jesuits at St. Louis, and the fifth to be chosen by these four. The Cabinet was again consulted, and an immediate assent given. The President, in his reply to the Bishops, stated that there is no law of Congress authorizing the employment of chaplains for the army, but that he would take the responsibility on himself. The following stipulations were then stated by the Bishop, as the tine </imi non of the mission of ' the Jesuits:? int. That they should lie recognized ami respected an clergymen in the army. 2<f That they should have free communication and intercourse with the Catholic soldier*, while not cmployed on military or camp duty. 3d. That the Protestant soldiers shall be allowed to converse and have unrestrained intercourse with the priosts, whenever the soldiers choose. 4th. That the priests thall have liberty to visit the Mexican camp. army, and people, at any and all timet, except on the evt of <in engagement, when their leaving the American camp might be jraught with danger tn themulrei, or lead to any breach of military discipline 6th. These stipulations were accepted by the President, and the arrangement was at once consummated. In accordance with this arrangement, two of the Jesuits, the Rev. Messrs. McKlroy and Kay, have already proceeded to join the army, and left New Orleans on the 2lst nit. in the Alabama, for Matatnoras. It wll be perceivsd that these stipulations, especially the fourth, give those clerpymrn unlimited power. To have unrestrained intercourse with the camp of the enemy in time of war, is a trust so unusual and extraordinary, that the President must have had the highest confidence not only in tb? venerated clergymen who have In-en chosen for the mission, but also in the order to which they belong. No one who is acquainted With these gentlemen, can doubt for a moment, that ' ihey will fulfil the object of their mission faithfully and well, and that the national honor and the safety of our army, will not be jeopardized bv bem? entrusted to their keeninir. We are of lb* opinion that the President, in sending these gerltiemen with sneh extraordinary power*, has pursued a wise and judicious course, and that the miseion will have the most beneficial results, when viewed as a piece of State policy. But we feel inclined to believe that tlu> announcement of the conditions of the mission will cause an awful outbreak of anti-Catholic feeling throughout the country, and that Mr. l'olk will be bitterly denounced as having endangered the safety of our army, by^greeing to a stipulation allowing the chaplains to go from one camp to the other, and to have nnr??trained conversation with tli? solI IWo Mel Muireri, lor out own pan, that ths miMiOn ot th*M hjfhJ? r*?p*ctabU clergymen i will be attended with the most favorable result*. 1a tho lirst place, they will increase, if tliat be possible, the devotion of the Catholic soldiers to their country, and to the cause for which they fight. These Catholic soldiers will be more contented, and will fight better, Laving the consolation of religion in sickness and in time of danger. Rut the most important service resulting from the mission will be the disabusing the minds of the Mexicans of the erroneous opinions that now obtain amongst them in relation to this country. The Mexican clergy "nd |>eople have received exaggerated statements of tho church biirnini/a nf Phi. ladelphia, nnd the hostility of a small portion of the p?ople to the Catholics. They have been improved with the idea that the object of the pre sent war on the part of the United States, is to get possession of their wealth, to plunder their r.'iurches, and to overturn their religion. The chaplains will dissipate those prejudices, in their preaching and conversation with the Mexicans. Their statements will of course bo received with respect, coming, as they do, duly accredited by the Bishops and their spiritual superiors; but should their mission fail, the first proposition of Bishop Hughes, namely, to send himself aiul a number of clergymen at a special commission to Mexico, trill be seriously entertained, and, perchance, acted upon, by the President. State Convention?The Bill ok Rights.?We are rejoiced to see that a constitutional bill <?f rights has been reported to the convention, delining, in an e?|>ecinl manner, the rights of the citizen. It provides lor the maintenance of trial by jury, freedom of speech, religious liberty, and the habeas corjms. It enjoins on the legislature the duty of authorising commutations of militia service, in behalf of those who have religious 'cruples against the use of carnal weapons. It amends the law ol libel, and provides against the imprisonment of witnesses, except during such time as is necessary in recording their testimony. It abolishes imprisonment for debt, except in cases of fraud, and gives married women right over all property acquired by gill, (except from tin* husband,) during coverture, and requires tho legislature to provide a separate registry thereof. The principal features ot this bill arc highly important, as providing for the corroction of abuses that have long been a disgrace to the administration of justice in New York. Among its most important provisions are, the amendment of the law of libel, that against the imprisonment of witnesses, and the definition of the rights of married women. In each of these particulars the evils have heretofore been of the most glaring character. An honest witness, as the law now stands, can be contincd in a loathsome prison, with all sorts of rascals, until such time as the trial of the culprit is brought on, whilst the latter is at large, and employing every expcdi?nt that money and interest can furnish him with, to put olf his trial. This is such a crying outrage upon the liberty of the citizen, that we are only surprised it has been suffered to exist so long. The present law of libel, too, is eminently unjust. Under its operation the press is more hampered than even in England. We would strongly advocate the maintenance of some law to serve a? a curb on the licentious portions of the press. IJut the present law, as it is administered by our judges, tends to trammel the free opinions of the press, in matters not only indifferent in themselves, but in those that actually interest the public good. We trust that this will be remedied. In the case of married women, the definition of their rights, incorporated in this bill, will have a most salutary influence, as preventing dissipated, or evil disposed husbands from squandering whatever property their wives may acquire by devise <?r otherwise, during the coverture. On the whole, the main features of the bill are conceived in wisdom. Majority Elections.?We notice that a movement has been made in the State Convention, to engraft into the new constitution the doctrine of majority instead of plurality votes. That any sensible ina?, desiring the real good of the State, should make any such' proposition, we cannot conceive. The idea is an exploded one, and is entirely anti-republican. The will of the mass of the people, in a majority election, is disregarded, and some little petty faction which holds the balance of power, forces the people to a compromise. Not only is the principle false in theory, but it has been found very clumsy in'practice. In Massachusetts, where this principle is arplied, it is sometimes necessary to have a dozen elections for a Governor, member of Congress, or town constable. There is now an election in progress in the county of Middlesex, in that State, for a register, and this election is either the fifth or sixth, which has l>een held for that purpose. Every body will recollect the number of useless attempts to procurc a Mayor in Boston, two years since. By these various attempts at an election, the State is put to much useless expense, and an election is only obtained by one of tho jmncipal parties making concessions to the petty faction? ihe small party of one thousand votes?who hold the balance of power in a community of fifty thousand suffrages. This movement in the convention is essentially an abolition one. If that party could succeed in establishing the principle of majority elections in this State, with their 16,000 votes, they cotdd forever hold the balance of power, a? that faction now does inMassaehusetts; and the people, in order to obtain a (>overnor,would be obliged to truckle to them. We have no idea that this absurd proposition will be, for u moment, entertained by the sensible and honorable members of the convention. ForRTH op Jtn.y.?There is a disposition manifested through the length and breadth of the country, toeelebrate the approaching anniversary of our national independence with unusual spirit. Every where the most extensive preparations are being made to make the occasion one of unusual splendor and rejoicing. A new ardor seems to be infused into all ranks of our citizens, by the late glorious events that have shed lustre on the arms of the American people. The revolutionary spirit is aroused in unusual strong, and there is every reason to believe that the coming Fourth of July will be the occasion of one of the most brilliant fftt* ever witnessed iu America.? The people nre rejoiced at the late brilliant victories on the ltio Grande, and at the peaceful termination of the Oregon difficulty. The present is n period ?>l unutual plenty, and the national prosperity never wa? greater. Why, then, should not the people rejoice on the returning anniversary of that glorious day on which was secured to u> our independence, and all the manifold blessings arising therefrom. What I>or.s it Mean !?Is it a* Ettuw Fleet to Ba? k t*r Mediation !-We learn from Captain Pilsbury, of the brig James Caskie, that on the night of the 24th of May, in lat. to 10,Ion. 0 (0, he passed a fleet of eight ships of war and three steam frigate*, all under short canvass and standing to the westward. In consequence of the darkness of the night, he coidd not ascertain to what nation they belonged. This fleet may have been the experimental squadron of England on a cruize, but is stronclv saanected to ha cither a French or English fleet,on its way to the Gulf of Mcxico. Time will tell. Lathi kkom Sot-rii America.?We find in the Caracras papers of the 30th May,the following intelligence:?On the 26th, preambles and resolutions were referred to the Committee on Foreign Affairs in the Senate, authorizing the executive power to offer his mediation in the settlement of difficulties between the Kepublicsof New OreuAdu and ?on the 27th, this decree was panted Jfea Legislative set^ion for 1846 clo?ed on the 8|i M*r * City Convention.?The delegates to the City Convention will meet on Monday next, and proceed with the m>k of remodelling our city charter.

The delegation appears to be respectable, and numbers among it-* members some who are well known to all our citizens. Fkom 1 >emerara?By the brig Antarctic, which arrived yesterday, we have accounts from this place to the 13th ult., and files of the Gazette and Timet to the 11th. They are entirely filled with extracts from the United States papers relative to the war with Mexico, and tho only item we find having any claim to interest, is the following paragraph from the leading article of the Gazette ol the 9th:? " The lata new* from the United Ktatei of America U calculated in ono respect to \.e of deep interest te the West India colonies, and thif among the res*, li it not probable, that, in the course of a few months, our sup plies of American provisions will either h<i stnnna^ nr be so dear at to place the meant of purchaiing them nearlv beyond our reach?

It will be repoated_to-night, together J | with the comedy of the " Kour Sisters," and the "Man Without a Head," for the fourth time, and like the pre. I ceding nights, we are certain the Park will be well attended by the fashionables of the city. We are pleased to see Mrs. Hunt's acting so well appreciated. BowEiir Thkatrk,?Last evening, " Putnam," that never-failing source of amusement and attraction, was presented to a good house. This is, without exception, the finest national drama ever written, and will be handed down to posterity with the name of its author, Bannister, who, we are sorry to say, has derived but very little pecuniary advantago from it He is now-sick, , and deserves remembrance. The evening closed with the " Butcher's Dog of Ohent." This evening, Mr. 1 j C. W. rlarke, one of our most talented American actors, i takes his last benefit this season at the Bowery. A very 1 line bill is ollered. " The Lady of the Lake." with J. R. ! 1 Scott as " Roderick Bhu."

Urkknwicii Theatric.?The performances at this admirable little theatre last night, were of varied and inforesting character, consisting of the " French Spy," the i " Death Ship," and " The Devil's in the Room." Loud applause was elicited from a very respectable house, at , frequent intervals, and all passed off with great trial. Mr. Freer is a manager of excellent taste and indefatigable energy, and well deserves a continuation of liberal patronage. The drama of the " Orphan of Geneva," to- i gether with the " Stranger," is to 1ms played to-night, be- ' sides singing and dancing. Such attractions are irresistible. CasTle Garde.*.?This establishment continues to j draw numerous and respectable audiences. This even- j ing the performances will be of a novel and varied ehar- ! meter, abounding in beautiful music. There is no place i in this city that can surpass this establishment for cool- ' ness, pleasure and amusement, and no place where | greater attention to the comfort of visiters Is displayed. ; Great preparations are being made by Messrs. French and ! lleiscr for the Fourth of July. j Hek ALiiiKDts.-Falmo'i Opera House was well attended last evening by a highly respectable audience, who were anxious to witness the varied surprising and amusing experiment* of this extraordinary man. Ho certainly is no common magician, for his feats are remarkable for their beauty and the admirable skill and dexterity with which they are performed. Tho senses | are cheated every moment, and the visiters after wit- ' nessing the wonderful experiments, are inclined to believe in the "black art." No one can form an idea of these curious experiments without seeing them. He produces new wonders every evening. Last evening the performances closed with one of the most extraordinary feats we ever witnessed. Herr Alexander, attired in a magnificent tnnic, embroidered with gol I, mounted n stool which had no connection with the floor. Ho showed that he had nothing concealed about h is person. Then taking a red shawl, which he spread out, lie produced from it, in succession, a" glass vase full of gold-fish, swimming in water which reached the brim, and about half a dozen pigeon*, which flew about in ?? ??-/ direction. This is an instance 1 of JoxtaiKy which we have never seen equalled This evening Herr Alexander takes his benoftu end he will j perform on the occasion some feats and experiments | never exhibited by him before?the feat of the gold fish i among the rest, we would advise those who wish to I witness his feat* to go there early, as thoio will be a crowded house.

Yacht Race,\v.?The match for $1,000, announced to come off as above, did not take place, in con. quence of an accident to Mestra. Stevens' newt sloop yacht Maria. In atrial prcvioui to the rtfee, hor tackle slackened so much as to bring her boom on the~tafl'rail, hnd if the race had been attempted, it was the pilot's opi-nion her mast would come by the board in the first half hour, particulvly with tho wind that was prevailing at tho time. Consequently, Messrs Stevens withdrew from the contest, and the Svren went alone for tho money, accompanied by a couple of ateamboats and three or four other clipper yachts. The steamer Buffalo finding there was to be no race.after hovering about the scena of action for near three hours, landed her passengers at the foot of Barclay street, without charge, much to the credit of her spirited Captain and owners Movement* of Travellers.

The rapid progress of human enlightenment in t)tis free land, where mind is tree, is a deep source of gratulation to the upright and juit citizen ; and the vast facilities which are profusely scattered through the various arteries of the republic, while they have elevated the national character, have laid the foundation for the numerous modern improvements that have takn place in ' the arts and sciences. To our national institutions are due, in an eminent degree, the KreAt and onward progress of the various branches of literature, under the fostering and able tutelage of pro- ' lessors of high eminence in the walks of science and the arts. Standing highest in the ranks of our public institution* for the cultivation of those arduous branches, is the University of the Citv of New York, whoie flourishing carecr has been marked by results a. once flattering to its protestors and honorable to the country. Some of the most eminent slurs in the politi- j cal world, whose mental scintillations have radiated an honorable pathwuy of fame, may date their dawn of intellect from litis excellent institution ; and the powerful display of intellectual ability which we witnessed yesterday, is a successful proof that the high carcer of this University is " still onward." Hie course of collegiate study is admirably suited to prepare the mind > of the graduate for tho higher professions, and instil the uccp luijprvMioim ui roorai senumeni, wnicn are caicu- ? lated to elevate and uphold character through life. In I tuch institutions, where the scholar tastes in early life of the " Pierian spring," he jmbibes sentiments which after yean cannot blot out from memory. " Justum ac tenacem propositi virum, . Noa cirium ardor quava jubentium, Non vultus instuntis tyranni Mente quatit solida " So seith poor old Horace, whose sparkling wit and 1 pure Roman iutellect shone conspicuous, nnd was ' coeval with the birth of Christianity , nnd this beau- 'J ti1111 passage, like his own "Monuinentum ere pe- ' rennius." hat itood tho test of ccnturiei, and come down ' to u* from remote ages, to delight the mind of the scholar and instruct that of the divine. The annual com- 3 mencement ot the University took place yesterday, be- 4 fore the meat fashionable und select auditory which we have seen for somo time collected together in the church ) of the University. The galleries presented an array of ) clastic beauty which fully sustained the high reputa- r tion of our city, the proverbial elegance and loveliness J of whose fair denizent have already so frequently called forth the homage of many a pen. At o'clock, a procettion was formed, which moved from the University to the University Place Church in the following order : Th? Janitor. Students of Arts. Candidates for Baccalaureate. Bachelors of Arts. Stndent* of the Medical Department. Candidates for the Dogree of Master of Arts. Masters of Arts. Masters of the (Jrainmar School. The Faculty of 9cienee and Letters. Faculty of Medicine. The Chancellor of the University. The Council. Regents of the University Ottcers and Members of Columbia College. The Rev. Clergy. The Doctors of Medicine. The Hon.

The following gentlemen acted as Committee: Reuben

P. Lowrie, F. Delafield Smith, William Aikman, Samuel Sands, George Noyes. The Chancellor, Mr. faeliisohryse.i, presided, and the Regents of the University, and other prominent Professors, took their places upon tho platform, the student* being located in the area of tho Church, separated from the spectator*. A very splendid orchestra, under the direction of Mr. A. Dodsworth, performed during the day a variety of tho most popular and select pieces, with a degree of sweetness and execution which deligh ted the entire groups who were present. The Chancellor commenced the proceedings by prayer, after which the order of exercises was proceeded with; after which a salutatory address was delivered in latin by Mr. P. W. Rkpfield, which was an admirable composition, of pure and chaste construction, having reference to the University, and complimenting the Chancellor, the Regents, and finally the audience who had honored them with their presence. It was delivered with a degree of ease and fluoncy which showed great , proficiency in the classic*. Tho next was an oration delivered in our own languafr* fey Mr William Aikman, which showed depth ot erudition and literary acquirements highly creditable to this young gentleman. After offering the congratulations of the students to the Council, the Chancellor, the faculty and the audience, for the accessful progress of the institution, he delivered the : oration, and dwelt, in tho course of his remark*, upon the indispensable necessity of faith, which made known Ulknown truths. Soaring'on her wing, the soul float*, with calm sereuity, in that infinitude of space far beyond the realm of starry worlds; in that region where eternal silence reigns, broken only by the distant murmurs of that music which suns hymn forth. Faith was the only ground ou which man could stand firm amid the rude liock of contending element*. F.rror may come as a whirlwind?the multitude may be shaken, but the believing soul always stands unmoved. Truth, which to other mind* is shrouded in the blackest night, is radiant to the man of faith. It may not be able to give argument, for faith looked bejond for higher powers and clearer light The oration was admirably delivered, and with a degree of easy Tonfidenee which showed a practiced power in public ipeaking. Mr. llcarEY W. Baown delivered the next oration, on imaginative literature, and passed a higk aulogium ou our own Cooper. He traced the origin of the style of romance and fiction which was originally designed to satirize vice, and depict error, with a view to banish ; them from society. Mr. Joan** Wbioht Williams delivered the next oration, on " Self-Reliance " His delivery whs good.? The next oration was delivered by Mr. Franklin O. Sherrel. Subject?" Incentives to Fxertion." The next, by Mr. F.dward G. 11 tad bury. Subject?" Preparatives to Eloquence." A Greek oration was nekt delivered by Mr. Charles H. Korce. It was a beautiful composition, , and was well delivered. The Greek i? a l>old ore rolun- . do language, full of rich patliot and melody, and spoken , in it* original purity, pouesies a *ort of melody which i* ; truly captivating Its dialects, too, are many?the Attic ?the Doric?the Eolicthe Ionic?and the proverbial beauty of Grecian architecture, has, too. ita Doric, Ionic.

From the libel, it appeared that on the 4th x>f June last, the Frank was pro- ! reeding from the foet of Canal itrcet to Fort Lea, with a large number of passengers. The Boiton wai alio lying at another pier at Canal street, and when the Frank came ' opposite to the pier where the Boiton wai lying, at the distance of about 950 feet, the Boiton was started and | propelled directly towards the Frank; the latter being | on her courie and at right angles with the Boston, which ; struck her with great violence, breaking the knee upon ' the guard of the Frank, abaft the starboard wheel-house, rarr) ing away the railiDg and otherwise damaged her. i The owner* of the Boston, by their aniwur, insist that ; the engine of the Frank was started before tha engine of j the Boston ; that, before the Boston headed rouud the ; fier, her engine was stopped in order to allow the Frank i to get out of the slip, by which the stern of the Boston i was thrown into the slip on ^e north side of the wharf. > it which she was lying; that^ie Frank had, in tha mean- . time, backed out into the river, and was moving to the southward and westward.
