The tariff bill has at l ist been tnken up in the Senate, aiul the Chairman of the Finance Committee led off the debate. He advocated ad valorem dutic*, and made the broad assertion, thai the House bill would produce a revenue of twenty-eight millions ot dollar?, upon an importation of one hundred and nineteen millions. If that is true, it is an increase of the average rate of duty, as the present tariff does not produce such a revenue. The average of the present act, is less than twenty-five per cent On motion of Mr. Evans, the bill was postponed until to-day. We have no doubt there will be a lengthy debate upon this question. We are satisfied tho Ilouee bill will not pass the Senate. The warehousing bill passed to be enmossed, but there have been so many amendments made to it, that we have at present no idea of its pro visions. [ A resolution was introduced in the House of Representatives, reminding the Senate 'hat several important bills had been sent to that body for concurrence. This is a good move, as the Sennte appears to have lost sight of them entirely. Th<v graduation bill still hangs in the House, and there appears to be con-iderable difficulty experienced in its progress. Votes are taken on amendments and as often reconsidered. It'state is very doubtful, parties are so very equally divided on the principal points raised, that the casting vote ol the speaker has several times been required to settle the matter. We see no sign of a final adjournment. Will some member make it his business to keep this subject belore the House. TUe American Army?The Regulars and tUelr Officer*. No topic has lately excited more attention, nor been discussed with more pride than our gallant army and its otficers. Success ulways commands notice as an end, but when brought about by either talent, superiority, or deeds of daring, the means used and object attained excite respect and praise. In the ca?o of our own forces, not only all of these traits have been exhibited, but combined with them we have seen discipline, strategy and valor, victorious over superiority in numbers, advantage of position, and brutal resistance, in an enemy actuated by feelings of desperation and dread of famine. Of some of the details connected with the branch of our national power, which has latterly achieved such triumphs, we would now speak. The aggregate force of the army actually in S"rviee on the commencement of the present year, was of whom 7.'M were commissioned officers, and 7,SS5 non-commissioned otficers, musicians, artificers, and privates, or about one commissioned ofheer to every ten men ; though of these officers, about 150 being engaged in some other duty than that of actual command, would lessen the proportion to one officer to every fifteen men. Sinc<* that period, owing to the outbreak Of war with Mexico, two mounted regiments have been added to the regular army, and orders received for the completion olthe previously enrolled regiments to their maximum number. So that within the suceeeding three months, probably, eur regular forces will amount to about 15,000 rank and file. We would only * ish that with the increase in numbers, the pay of the privatos were raised to a sum sufficiently commensurate to their services; and that our officers, now perhaps respectably remunerated, should be allowed, when incapacitated by age or sickness, to retire on half pay. That our army has been thus increased in numbers,and abundant appropriations made for subfri ? fence, equipment, and transportation, is in a great degree owing to the firct opportunity which ooeurrcd for a successful display of its utility. When the news came of the two or three ambuscades into which small d-'achnients of the main r%f nilr n imu in Tuiriu uravn nffn/>L n<l u?i<4 """J """J ? r. i miu overcome, though 110 evidences were .>een of want of bravery, yet there wore many who censured the rashness, nnd underrated the military skill o( our officers ; and at that time it could not be concealed, that an intense anxiety prevailed for the safety of tlie whole army of occupation. Had Gen. Taylor, at that time, merely retreated to Point Isabel, and held out strongly in that point, nine-tenths of the American people weuld not have been dissatisfied with his course under the circumstances; but the reputation of West I'oint, the honor of the troops, and tho glory of the officers, would not admit a delay for the arrival of volunteers, to detract from the inent of those wlio risked fame and litis on their own exertions. We know the result. The world knows it, a>id all slanders and r.diculo hitherto thrown out against the defenders of the government, were scattered with the remnants of a flying foe. But had the result been otherwise? had our army there, cut off from all asuistance, been destroyed by the numerical superiority o( the Mexicans, would the allowances for defeat been sufficient to have dispelled the coolness with which most certainly any proposition for increase of force would have, been rerf?ivf?il W.tl. nrmios it is as with individuals?m tlu'ir successes and prosperity they are overwhelmed with praise and offers of assistance, but tn unavoidable adversity no man holds out a helping hand. The soldier who now by long services stands at the head of the American army is General Gaines. This veteran, who for nearly sixty years has fought, and bled, and conquered in the battles of his country, is now called to account by men who were unborn, or in their cradles, when he was wielding the sword in the repulse of aggression. A hero of half a century, who was rewarded by a government and applauded by a nation, is now given an opportunity of vindl catmg his oharncter from a charge of over-zea leuMieM- We hope the opportunity has been af< iorcLadin aspiritol justice rather than of detrao -General Scott, the highest in rank, ttaoJjjh hot SO long in service, who was breveted 14 W his distinguished good services in the suo. oeseree oenfiicuiaf .Chippewa and Niagara, anc for his un;[?r.(H,gaJJa,ntry and good conduct as ar oifleW ro jtiW Mtrpy," a. man of tried courage, o fifty year*.' uuliiary ujipeneroe. li at this moment ?(,avery ttUfil tftippoon thai wii pf pwirfin^fcaft iir*erft Oae iihguarded expresfwn ho*, shook the fahrut reared in hattle and cementod iQ Victory i a,gpo? e ^u!U .h bljk owfi hand fc.t? ftpfe thaft the whojeartillery of the *emyv bet ?he eaeond sober thought of the pssple ^overtook one. fault, a*d tamomVr hirp oittr ** (oa th? barto-fleto. i Lai bun be himjM'.itorilfr ojfttii but;if ip 1912 was that of Col.

In 1846 he is breveted again tLe i foremowt of the army. j i All of these generals ju?t mentioned entered the artuy utihe lowest step, Hnd have risen by indivi- i 1 dual merit and honor to the positions they now fill. | ] Not here, as in Europe, can wealth buy rank, but > the road is open to all. Deeds, not dollars, are the < r stepping stones to promotion. This principle is j one which, in a great measure, seems to refute ( the objections to the existence of a military body I in our country ; but the stronsr onnosition inveii i to the increase and even to the provision for a r Mantling army in the United States, seems to be principally from a misunderstanding ns respects the distinction between military and martial law. The soldier, on enlisting in thu army, does not become released from the restraints of civil law, but is taken up by the martial code, where the ' civil law leaves him ; the one is added to, but ' ] does not cancet the other, and this is the great, the radical ilistinction between our own standing aru'y and that of the generality of monarchical governments. Tiierc, the soldier is withdrawn 1 from the jurisdiction of civil power, and even his debts become liable to military supervision. With the check now mutually held by the President and Congress, a standing army can never be used in this country for the solhsh or usurping pur- 1 poses of either. ^ Wlide we are upon this subject, there is one point which we think has too little excited the at- ^ ! tention ol those in power. It is the exercise of a 1 practice, the bene A is of which have been proved with most signal success. 'Tis the distribution of ! 1 rewards of merits and badges of honor amongst j < those who, either by good conduct, long service, or deeds ol valor, are worthy of receiving them, i A soldier, though looked upon by many as little . superior to a machine, is a human being suscept- I ible of the same feelings which actuate the ollicer at the head of hi s regiment. Ambition, the spirit t ^ of emulation, the pleasure of approval, ana a i sense of injustice, are feelings which spring in | , Jiis heart with none the less impulse, because that heart is'covered by a rough exterior. It is in siccordance with the spirit of our institutions that ?i. merit should bo acknowledged and rewarded in every citizen protected under the flag of our coun- | ; try. The soldier is a citizen?a useful citizen, and j no matter what the distinction consist of, only j , let it be conspicuous, and the effect would be felt ; , in every branch of our army. Napoleon gathered | c around him a half million of troops eager to re- ' j , ceive from him one look of recognition, and who ! t died happy ifthe cross of the legion of honor hung ! ^ on their hearts; let our government by the same in- t duceinent instil into the heart of every man however humble, fighting the battles of his country, the like reverence for the flag, and that glorious 1 esprit du ccirpt, which is the sure guarantee of j victory. Let every ono worthy have an evidence to show that he personally assisted in the work wh:ch added to the fllory or dignity of his country; j ! an evidence which shown to his children with the ^ pride of one " who has been to the wars," will I make them, inspired by his example, better men und more useful subjects. ' Tiik New Consular Bill.?What has become I of the bill for the revision of the consular system, which was presented in the House of RepresentaI lives on the 17ih of last month, by Hon. W. W. ' ! Campbell! The many valuable alterations which ; the bill suggests should be put in operation as , ! quickly as possible, and we hope that no indif- ; fcreuce or t>upineness on the part of Congress ; will allow the consideration ol this bill to be post- I poned to another session. There is no better time ' than the present to urge the adoption of the bill, and we hope the mover of it will attend to it im- , mediately. | Under the present system our consuls abroad are allowed to participate in commercial or mer- i cuntde business of any kind; and, in lact, nearly ull u.ro engaged in business either ns principals or agent?. Thi? generally produces a handsome in' come, which in addition to tho fees of the consul, liim tr? tnnnnrt n?/l . j ?"? UIO VU1WV *?**.?* becoming dignity. Of the many evils attending the fact of our consuls being generally merchants, we have already spoken; and, indeed, they are too obvious to require explanation. The new bill abolishes consuls' fees, and forbids their engaging in private business of any kind. In order to compensate for these deprivations, ] a list of salaries is proposed, varying from fifteen j hundred to four thousand dollars. Thus the < ! former salary is paid at Bordeaux, Cadiz, Trieste, and other places, and the latter at London, Liverpool, and others. The only objection we have to ; this part of the bill, is that the salaries, particularly j I the lowest, ore too sm ill. As the bill abolishes i all other sources of revenue to the consul, he must j , i nt cessarilv depend entirely for his own suppoit, j and that of his office, upon the salary which he re- j j ceives. Fifu-en hundred dollars is too little for this. I ( j As the representatives of a great nation, our con- I ( suls abroad are subjected to many expanses other j j than those absolutely necessary for the support of I J themselves and th?ir families. Civilities must be 1 1 tendered to our own countrymen, ami returned to j \ 1 residents of the country where a consul may be , | stationed. In many cases, wo doubt not the ex. | penses would far exceed the salary. This being the fact,we think that men,capable and well qualified . for the office, could not, under the present scale | of salaries, be persuaded to leave their business j here and enter into the consular service. It would be necessary, then, to appoint hungry officeseekers, ready for anything, who would disgrace, j rather than sustain with honor, the dignify of their ' office as representatives of a nation like ours. 1 j We trust that the scale of salaries will be care- I j fully examined, and materially altered before the i ' bill is passed. _____________ j < Affairs in Brazil.?Our advices from llio de j Janeiro are of the 6th tilt. The Senate and assembly were yet in session. We tind amongst the documents laid before them by the Secretary of Foreign Affairs, the protest of < the Argentine Republic against the acknowledgement, by the Brazilian cabinet, of the independence of Paraguay, and the reply thereto. From the latter, we make the following extract, as appearing rather republican, coining from the minister of an Emperor:? , "The Anti-American diplomacy ji to sub-divide into , mall independencies the nation* or Sooth America, so < thai none may acquire (Treat or overbalancing power, and , for this came' the government of Brazil would not haTe acWnoule Iged the independence of a revolted province of | the Argentine republic, especially when upholding the | same fundamental principle* of government as the Arg ?- ( ! tine republic herself, had not Paraguay alway* been | independent and tepwrated from Bnanos Ayr??.

Tn MA.NtTTACTCa* or Pro Iron ?It ia wit much surprise, we have seen In ?om? nf the part papers, the extraordinary statement, that pi iron is mad* in the United States as a general bu siness Tor 'welve dollais the ton, in face of tb well established fact, that thero is scnrcelv a pos tion within the country where it can be produce below seventeen dollars, with the exception pei Imps of factories on the Potomac River, wher Boal, ore, and lime, with water power combined it cannot be made under fifteen dollars. Sue misrepresentations, proving too much, are moi likely to counteract the object in contemplatior ihey show a selfish interest entirely inconsister with fairness, totally unworthy tho c< ntidence < Congress. The peculiar advantages on the Potomac Rivei for making pig iron at the lowest price, ougt never to be presented as conclusive evidence, tin other situations are equally faverable. Pig iro made from charcoal invariably costs twenty do! lar*, (east of tho Alleghany mountain*) iuic! where the ore, or the fuel, is to be brought to th furnaces, the cost cannot b* much less. Neuvitas.?Th? advices l'rom Neuvitas are t the 29th ult. The news of the settlement of the Oregon que! tion hart arrived. The arrivals at the port for the precedini month, were 476. The season was unusually healthy. The ntun ber in the hospitals daily diminishing. Oh the 2lth, the Philharmonic Society cele brated their anniversary with a grand festival.

Tlia society ought to furnish inside accommodations for tha emigrants. ViLLAift ?Two or three casea have latelr come to i our knowledge, which exhibit one ol the various modes j by which acbemer* make money in thin city at the ex- i s pense of laboring men. There is quite a number of geniuses aboat the city who have latterly made a business i v of watching the arrival of transieat vessels, going to e their capUUM, and offering to discharge the cargoes at . very low prices. The captain consenting, they hire a II number ot laborers, set them at work, and tell them they n will be jald as soon as the ship is discharged, which will probably ba a fortnight. W hen the job ia completed the ' speculator roceives the money for which he contracted, { and sudnenly is missing, leaving hia poor laborers to a whistle for their pay. Captains of vessels should be rares ?ul not to allow others than established stevedores to discharge their vessels. l~ i Fibe.?About one o'clock, yesterday morning, a fire i, was discovered at the store No 33 Downing street, cor ner 01 seuioru. ruucemia i iuik, wuu uutwvcrcu u, y succeeded in effecting an entrance through the window. ) It vu apparently the work of an inconJiary.

This is a great injustice to jurors, and ought * to be remedied. It is but fair to say, however, that the it same abuse is tolerated in all the other law courts. We e bare known jurors to be kept in their seats for three or t four hours, waiting for the lawyers, but in the end, the d gentlemen of the long robe could not be brought to the if : scratch, and the Jury would have to be discharged after * ' losing three or four hours of the most valuable part of d the.day This matter should be taken up by the Cond vention. 9- The Dead House.?Some time last snmmer the then y Common Council made an order that thi< nuisance > should be abjted. but no action has since been taken on * it, although it is becoming every day more intolerable I i- On Thursday last, and every day since, tho windows of e the United States District Court, and of all the offices at- ; g tached to it, had to be shut down; the consequence is, the 1 * officers are nearly suffocated for want of air, and if the ; - nuisance is not very soon aoated, that department will | y have to suspend business, or tuka up their quarters ; >* i somewhere else.

Jordan, one of \ I tlie heiocs wounded at the battle of Resnoa de 1 la Pultun. Tlii? distinguished compliment to that i) : gallant officer originated with some eight or i; ten patriotic gentlemen now residing in this : city, who are natives of the town of Canton, in Massat. chusetts, where Lieutenant Jordan waa born. A very 1, elegant circle of charming and accomplished ladie* who i t- were present, called forth from Lieutenant Btirbank the 1 i- flattering interrogatory, whether any angels could be seen more lovely than the angels of New York. About 10 n, o'clock the company arranged themselves on either side r, of the splendidly furnished apartments, and Mr. Kndicott a-' ir a graceful and appropriate manner, stated the object i.; | for which he had invited his friends together, and gave a ', brief narration of Lieut. Jordan's service* and bulbant d, i conduct in the battles ol the 8th and 9th of May. (ton. ' 1 Handford then stepped forward and prefaced the pre senl.; 1 tation with the following address : ? /. I Sir,?Vour fellow-tow ni-men of Canton in the State of 1 4. | Massachusetts, now residing in this city, have deputed d- roe to perlorin the very agreeable duty of presenting to J a, you this sword, as a suitable token of their respect and s- esteem, and as a testimonial of their appreciation of the gallant manner in which you discharged your duty on the battle field of Resaca de la Palma. The honorable i I wounds received by you on that occasion, with the tes- : n timony of your gallant commander and companions in i ; that unequal yet glorious struggle, have associated your I II | name, with honor, in an event which will ever be conr. . spicuous in the annals of our country, and your friends ,e i whom I represent feel an additional pride in the hard H- bought honors of their fellow-townsman. The battles of > 1 the eighth and ninth May, fought by our gallant little |(j j army, under every disadvantage of circumstances and re position, and ngainst fearful odds, have proved to the 1 i world, that in the long interval of peace, with which our : ,,1 country has been blessed, we have lost neither the mili, tary skill nor the cool courage which have heretofore ever charnctized our countrymen. And I should fail to r, do justice either to my own feelings, or to those of the , friends whom I represent on this occasion, if I omitted to pay the tribute so justly due to that Institution to whose ' noble and judicious training we are indebted for the skill and science exhibited on this occasion, and I feel doubly " gratified in having in opportunity of doing so in the pren' ?ence of one (Professor Mahan of West Point,) whose I l.ibors have no largely contributed to the foundation j 1 of the military character of many now in tba Held .

It will be ob?orved that thin di/Trrence in faver of New York, oocura with a diflerenc* in the duty at ! iverpool of nearly two shillings per barrel, in favor of flour solped via Montreal. It will alao be perceived that the highest rails are put down in the calculation! made in relation to the New York reute, showing an excess of expenses in the transportation of flour fronr Toronto to New Veek, over those from Toronto to Montroal. TUe expenses in favor of New York appear to be from the time the article leaves the seaport, where the last shipment takes place. Leaving out of the question the expenses of transporting flour to the shipping port at the termination of either route, there is a difference is favor of shipping flour from New York to Liverpool, com par ed with Montreal, of one shilling, seven and a half pence per barrel, currency. When this fact is ao clearly demonvtrated, as appaara in the above statement, even under existing charges on the public works of this State, we can safely anticipate a much mora favorable position, as a shipping port, whan ma ions on our canals are reauceu 10 a proper |>eini This fac' it another and a vary powerful argument in favor of the passage of the export drawback bill, which ha* tor many month* been undvr consideration in both house* of Congreai. The import drawback bill haa, ?o far, worked admirably, and ita successful and beneficial operation* 1* pretty good evidence that an extension of the lyitem would work advantsgeously to all Interest*. It would increase our foreign and dome*tic commercial marine, and increaie the revenue of our work* of internal improvement, not particularly of this State, but thoee of New fcngUnd, and of the Southern and War Urn State*. A railroad from Portland to Montreal i* in the course of construction, and a few year* will eufflce to complete it. Tbi* will give a more direct route from the interior of the British province* to an Amencsn seaport, than j at exists; and it will open a trade with the Canada*, greater than ever yet experienced.
