Jng a rich scene opposite the Park, on the fourth of July, and a full compenlof commercial, monetary, and miscellaneous intelligence of the week. The Revolutionary PerMutf In Krauce?~lta Probable Progress anil Uffect, The news by the Britannia, important as it is, even in a cursory view, yet, in" its details anil minutiae, presents symptoms anil facts pregnant with interest to the political world. The eyes of potentates and diplomatists, though ever apparently occupied with "the present, yet, as soimt prophetic warning is given, turn anxious glances to the future; and to that part of the curtain which veils the destinies of I-'rance, speculation turns with seriousness, hut scantily concealed. Now, that the head of the Papal dominions, well stricken in years, has gone to tne graves of his fathers, the thought naturally arises, who is the next, amid tlie sovereigns of Europe, to descend from the throne to the tomb. If age is to be taken as the test, Louis Philippe, now the oldest reigning monaich of Europe, will be the next to fall ; and with Irs demise, will probably commence the grand struggle between republican and monarchical principle*, under whatever name the contest may be commenced. The present King of France, by his unceasing efforts for th? preservation of pence, coupled to his English predilection?of course securing the co-operation of the English Cabinet?has thus lar , held firm possession of his throne. The several attempts at assassination have but strengthened his position. lie has, during his fule, presented the singulur appearance of a king surrounded by republicans at home, popular abroad; himself a ' strong pacificator, guiding the movements of a people fond of military glory, and eager for war. But the tacit understanding, which seems to exist uniongst all orders of the French people, that all diboord must be avoided, till his death leaves cioar me nem ot action tor another revolution, , anil with it the terrors of civil war, has been the main prop to his stability. i That Louis Philippe has a popularity among a certain portion of the people, who, engaged in j mercantile traffic, have reaped the benefit of the peaceful relations existing by his influence, and the ministerial talent gathered around him, cannot be doubted; and from the fact that this class, through their moneyed influence, Isave always the power of supplying or withholding the sinews of war, we arrive, probably, at the cause which fir so long an interval has restrained the natural impulses <jf the majority of the French; though with this majority Louis Philippe nnd his political course are forever at real variance. With the j nobles of tlie ancient rtgitne, with the lower j orders, with the army and navy, and last, though j not least, with the Napoleonists of the coun- j try, there exists a feeling diametrically op- I posite to the policy of the present French ministry, and this feeling, though now suppressed, j must find vent when the question of succession is | broached. The next occupant of the French 1 throne will probably be a military man ; one who has been brought iin in tli* old rxt war with the true French hatred of prrfide Albion, and who will iiavtt the desire and heart oncc more to ' cross bayonets with the armies of England, and try ayjun lor the supremacy of the seas. The n?;ne of Napoleon is still loved by the French people, and his imagined wrongs cry not loud, but deep, in their bosoms, for revenge. The rash attempt of Louis Napoleon, so foolishly planned and so signally frustrated, was cited as a proof in England that the inlluence of the Napoleon family was forever crushed ; but l'rince Louis, of a branch comparatively unknown, and untried by the people, seized a most unpropitious moment for a madman's freak ; and his failure, in the very first steps of his course, is no evidence that another may not sue- I ceed. The Prince de Joinville.a name dear to the majority of the French people, apparently unites more qualities essentially requisite | for the fulfilment of their desires, than any man now prominent amongst the dignitaries J of the country. A prince of blood, he hns become a man of the people. From tiis youth he has been the servant of his country, and as j much from merit as from position by birth, he , has arisen to the station which he now holcls. lie j aecms at present the only one npon whom the friends of the Bourbons und the devotees of other schools can, with any probability, unite ; and his well-known hostility to the English,and his love for America, will not bo the least of hia qualifications for popularity. Were the Due d'Orleans himself I living, the natural descent might probably he | peacefully secured ; but a regency of years' dura- | tiou would of itself give strong temptation for out- ! break of public opinion, especially if the Due j do Nemours were to act as regent and guardian of j the Prince Royal, now only in his 8th year. Were i the rights of the oldest living son to Vie overlooked, j and the Prince de Joinville to be appointed Hegent, civil war would, perhaps, be avoided ; but the peace of Europe would be disturbed, and the soil of the continent once more be dyed deep with blood. Those now dominant in the councils or France would be swept away, and the old r?$imf of the Empire, with their supporters, would unfurl to the breeze the banners inscribed with I Wagram, Austerlitz, and Marengo. War once J desired, and pretexts innumerable are readily j found to excite it. These speculations for the future may be pre- t mature, but wuna vnront. The next Reamer ' may bring us the news of the death of him who already numbers more years than three score and ten, and there are few believe but his deccas? will be followed by a /evolution. It is at any rate a well-known fact that France and England have each silently, cautiously, but energetically been preparing for the anticipated contest, even when apparently hound strong in the bands of peace. Let the United States then be prepared for the crisis which may soon come, by her counsels and her actions, to exhibit herself as the model republic of the world. Let her, while the elements of discord will shake the monarchies of the East, make the most of her position to increase in wealth, extend her power and influence, so that when omoe more the earth is still, she may be found first and foremost in all that ia good and great. PtociRDiifns in Co.voaxsv?The members of the present Congress certainly have a way of disposing of time without disposing of much business. The graduation bill and the appropriation bill passed the Senate yesterday, and the warehousing bill was debated at some length, | without coming to the question. In the House of Representatives, the gradua- | tion bill was under discussion. There is no doubt 1 but that this bill will pass and become a law ol the land None of the great measures of the seeaian appear to be on the carpet, and thty j appear to be slumbering between the two houses. | From present appearances, there in very little ft probability of an adjournment before the first of l? September. This sess on of Congress will long b be remembered for it# length, unci we hope the ! odium of such a protracted fitting will fall upon ^ the party in the majority, which has the complete ' tl control y\' the busine-s under consideration. It n is now the eighth month of the session, and K nothing, in fact, has been done but what could 1 ?! easily have been accomplished in as many weeks {, or day*. While the members of both houses are 8 opposed to an early adjournment, it is impossible ? to i;et them together for the transaction of bust- . * tie--. It is difficult to get even a quorum In the lower house, and about a dozen of llie members i of the upper house are running over the country, n doing anything but attending to their legislative I l< duties- ti Warehouse Bill.? We have reason to believe : ^ | that if the shipowners nnrl Importing merchants j i move in reference to this important measure, and i that there i$ every probability of it being carried. ! c Seldom has there been n matter of sd much con- * , P sequence to our city brought before Congress as w this, and it wonkl be a source of lasting regret if ^ it did not succeed in consequence of the apathy 1 v, of those so deeply interested in the passage of the , w bill now before the Senate. Cl The opposition of the manufacturers to it is ? altogether "^Warranted, for aldiough the purport j of 'It is to allow importers to store their goods for j |j a time, it will not increase the demand for goods 0| for consumption hcr?. No, the principal object j tt to be gained by it is to encourage* foreigners to ^ cunw hero for their supplies?say for Mexico, , w when /eace is restored, and other quurters. New j Yorkers are deeply interested in the matter, not j ?" only our ship owners and importers* but our real JJ! estate holders also. | st To suppose that it will add to our consumption here is absurd, and therefore the alarm which has ci been created among our manufacturing interest is groundless. The idea of a poor woman wear- ? ing two new dresses a year in consequence of it, 1 ?| when she can hardly afford to get one, is ridicu- | th lous ; ami but few of our hard-working mechanics | P1 and laborers wilt he able to obtain two coats in- ! y; stead of one, even if the warehouse bill is passed. I in Let the manufacturers get rid of their absurd and j jl <V>nli?Vt a? *?'?!! <.? ...111r. ? ' ?? <ww?iwii| " vu W? nvttlSII} ICUIO ) UUI LUIIllUCItUj uv and commrrje chiefly will be benefited by such bill. m What gives London, apart from its rfflghty pop| ulation, so much power and wealth 1 Its im- fo rnense commerce, with its great facilities in the numerous warehouses, furnished by the government for the accommodation of those who cannot, 0i on tho instant, pay their duties, or who, lrom an excessive supply, causing a glut at the moment, t do not choose to force sales, and have recourse to Li the public warehouses until the market is relieved from tho over-supply. Give us the warehouse bill, and New Orleans, Philadelphia, Baltimore, ol Boston and Charleston, a? well as New York, will tj, be largely benefited. But our Chamber of Commerce, and the whole mercantile body, must stir in the matter, if it is to be carried. Let there be no delay. A largo com. tli miltee should be appointed by the merchants to proceed to Washington, at once, to urge the passage of this most valuable measure. Our Indian Relations.?We are glad to per- ir ceive tliat the relations between our government and the several Indian tribes, on our borders, are becoming nioro and more friendly. This will ? form a main element of our strength, in time of H war, and the administration deserves great crcdit for taking pains to conciliate the redman. '?< We learn that a new treaty has lately been (l concluded, by Major Harvey, with the Pot- l>< tawattamies, by which it is covenanted that {J the tribe relinquish their lands west of the in Missouri river in Iowa, covering an area of 5,000,000 acres, and that they remove to a new >i tract, on the Kansas river. The tribe have also consented to dispose of a million of acres, held by a baud of their nation on the Osage river, the government stipulating to pay them, therefore, the sum of 8'S!>0,000 ; such sum to cover all expenses fil I of removal, improvements, purchase of new ]? tract, Src., Stc. jj Nothing can tend in a greater decree to give j, vigor and confidence to the American arms than v< the establishment of lriendly relations with the Indians. There are now various tribes repre- ri seated, by delegations, at the seat of government; , and we hope no opportunity will be neglected of | proving to them that their best policy is friendship ^ | to the United Ftatcs. ! Tiie Mormons.?These victims of delusion have ti. ttl at length been routed lrom their city, and been jj scattered over the plains of Oregon, California and tu the frontiers of Texas, where they will settle and 8< practice their religious rites with freedom. ?t Since their celebrated Prophet Smith made his 81 dibnt as a Saint, his adherents and believers have been characterised by an energy and perseveranco worthy ol" u nobler cause. In spite of U obstacles that apjieared to many insurmountable, tliey succeeded in building a city and erecting a temple that has become an object of wonderment to travellers. The same spirit has animated them a, in all thvir undertakings. When the command went forth that was to banish them from their ; homes and kindred, they grumbled not, but pur- ai sued their march as a people that were willing to ! o( suffer every persecution for the cake of their reli- i ?t gion, and viewed it more in the light of; n act of ! w their (iod than an injury committed on them by Jt their fellow-men. They undoubtedly will be 01 guided by the same spirit in their new homes, and will sigain recommence the lnbor of founding ! jn a new city. ' It will be interesting to traco their progress in in the Western wilds and mark the course they shall ! ' take. We may have to chronicle the rearing of a Western empire, which will ere yet exercise an important influence in the affairs of this continent. I n; One hundred and fifty Mormons have just set- j j'j tied in Texas, near Austin. | to ????? th Glory.?We believe it was Byron who defined ' il glory " to be shot through the body, and his name ! gi spelt wrong in the newspapers announcing his ! death." j c? In our notice of arrivals we have given Cnpt. Hawlis for Capt. Hawkins. This inadvertence enables us to notice, with more emphasis, the 1" gallant defender of Fort Brown, after the lament- t|J ed death of Major Brown. Captain E. S. aa Hawkins is n native of this State, and is the f0 eldest son of the late Colonel Samuel Hawkins, l,c formerly of this city, who raised a volunteer of regiment, and had command at the Narrows, at m the close of the last w?r. Ho was subsequently ^ agent of the government under the Ghent Treaty, I | in settling ihe Canada boundary. The family of Colonel Hawkias is a brave one; afl Charles, his second son, was commodore of the *u Texan navy, and died at New Orleans. Captain ^ H., the defend r of Fort Brown, graduated at b? West Point, and has been in the service since ^ 1S20. His reply to the pompous demand of i Arista to surrender, ttjat " respectfully de-lined," ! was peculiarly characteristic. gn tic Constitutional Convention?July 8, 1840?

Nancy Mieeter, a rather interesting and well-dressed i 11, charged a young man named James Dixon with lie- i g the lamer ot he illegitimate child, which he thieut- 1 lud to de*crt and leave a* an incumbrance upon the i mnty.

The conre- i i lenco was, that Dixon had to evert hi* ingenuity to I ;tricate himselt,being placed in a "delicate li* ' between | I e two ho. ns of a dilemma. Nancy wished to bo made ( 1 honest w oman of, and told her gay Lothario that ii he | bmitted to be her husband, and take her tot " better or , r worse," she wou'd not swear against him.

Newport, from which we date, is a quaint, queer, old j lace; two hundred year* old, and over. 4!t stands, as j lany know, upon the finest bay in America?a bay here, at one time, fifty tall ships of war were outlined n its snooth surface, while the many tiers ?f merchant essels that formed a very forest of masts along the rharve*, denoted tho commercial prosperity of the place, 'his was seventy years ago. Alas ! what a different asect does the bay of Newport present at tho present day. , few small coasting schooners, here and there a whaler, alf-a dozen colliers, and, at long intervals, a steamboat lay bo seen to stop, land a few passengers, with their undies, and then proceed on her thorougnfare to Boston r New York. Will it be believed that this almost >le- j erted harbor at one time not only rivalled, but actually i ad the advantage of New York in commereial greatess? Such is the ra-o. Ask ail inhabitant of Newport 10 cause of its commit aial leeay. He will most likely ' nawer you, that it owes its misfortunes to the rough I reatment which it received from the British soldiery | tiring their three years occupation of it in the reolutionary war. This answer is not iatelligent Had 10 British razed and demolished Newport, this would ave, but slightly, affected its ultimate destiny. It could nly have checked its growth for a fow years, had there een a source of sustenance; but there was not. and is ot. There was no great country behind it to produce lio staple of commerce. No city can be great, coinmcrially, no matter what mny be its water advantages, un;ss barked by a fine ami fertile country. Newport, uner the most favorable circumstaucer, never could have cen a great city. It cannot be said to hare decayed, owever. 1*. is as large now. as it oror wai, and there re no symptoms of ruin or decay to be seen. Though lie streets are carpeted with grass, yet the palings and ouses that border them look Iresli nnd white; the doorau lie* have been newly polished, and the windew-panes >ok bright and clear. Her commercial greatness is one?her warehouses are closed for ever; yet, within few years, she has discovered a new source of suste mill ?? ...?? _..|.? I,.- a ourishing anJ fashionable city.

There is, perhaps, no ?}>ot upon the routiuent of Ameira, that affords greater advantages for a fashionable rate ring plaoe than Newport. Here, the invalid, the otary of pleasure, the tourist, the traveller, and even le antiquarian, can all have their respective tastes and 'islies gratified.

The receipts of cotton at this port appear to bive fallen off about the same per cent in each of the past two yenrs.

Theie return* no far rs they go, will enable thote in. \ \ te rented to form a pretty correct idea of the movement* in the article* enumerated, a* they are of an official chfc* racter It will be obier red, that there are many imporI tant itaple article* of importation not included in the li*t, which make* it rather imperfect It i* our impreuion, that the aggregate importation of foreign merchandize into thi* country during the r.axt ten year*, will be leu than that for the pent ten yean, or in other word*, that we hare reached the maximum in our foreign import trade. Ten year* ago, the value of foreign merchandize imported into tL.e country, we* nearly double what it ha* been in either of the pait three year*, notwithatanding the rapid increase in our population within that time; and there i* eveiy probability of the importation* falling ofl' every year, if the currency doo* not become inflated much be>ond It* pre. lent itamlard. It it a very g'eat error to roppooe, that a reduction of duty i* going to dwell the importation to that extent, a* to give a larger revenue. There li a limit to our importation* when they are regulated by the comumption ; and If the currency 41 eitablUhed upon a apecl* bans, they mu?t be regulated by the consumption. If the extent of our importation* depended upon the rate of daty enforced, then the lower th? duty, the greater the revenue: but it muat appear plain to every one who will take common tenia view oft 1 the question, that where the domettic *npplie* are Increasing ao rapidly, and where the conaamption of th* j neceaaariee and luxurie* of life comprise* *uch a *mall number of articles not manufactured or produced within oar own lianiti, that the aggregate importation mint tteadily decline, in the face of any tariff, do matter how reduced may be the areivge. We are ?o thoroughly impressed with thi* belief, that It ia our opinion that a lerenne sufficient for the support of the (Jerernmeu* will hare to be rftl?ed in wne other way beside* or la connection with duty upon import* Our man ifae." nirer* hare become to well eatabll<hed, that they oat> lire and thrlre under any rate ol du j any tarff ma> enforce.
