JVEW* YORK HERALD. hew York, Thur?i*v, July '43, 1HM. CoiiKreulunil TblrtyThlrd Week of the Srulon^The Tariff. The tariff is dniKgnijjjulong slowly, but not so Kurely as its friend* anticipated. Wo do not look for a vote before Monday or Tuesday next. Senator Camerou, of Pennsylvania, defended the bill of 1842 ably, and reminded the administration of tho measures resorted to by the party in his State to secure the election of their candi dates. It appears that there are eight or nine democratic Senators?independent of those who have avowed their determination to vote against it? opposed to the new Tariff bill in the shape it came from the lower house, but how many ol these eight will voto against it, remains in doubt. All who vote for it must vote against their own judgment, and in opposition to what they must consider the best interests of the country.? If they vote for the new tarilf bill they must sacrifice those interests lbr their party. These Senatort arc Mettr* Dix, Dickinson, Benton, Cats, Semple, Hnyrrard, li'innegan, and Breete. Mr. Calhoun is opposed to the ad valorem principle, and to the great revolution in our commercial system this bill will produce, and it is our impression that he will recommend some amendments We wish to place the names of those Senates before the country, that the people may see in urKnao ?- - - - * - ' itMiviD uioii iiuon:?i8 resi, inai mey may I judge them by their acts. When a measure litre this it brought foward, a measure afi'ecting to ome extent the interests of every man, and when the two parties are so equally divided in relation to its merits, it becomes a matter of very serious consideration with every Senator having a vote upon tlie question, what course he will pursu? in the premises?whether he will hesitate between hu party and the real interests ot' his country. If the necessities of the country really required a repeal of the present act, the whole question would bear a different complexion, but euch is net the case. It is an experiment of the most desperate character, and an immense responsibility devolves upon those having in their hands the disposal of this mighty matter. The Oregon Treaty and tlie Senate. We have extracted from the Philadelphia North American the documents connected with the Oregon treaty, and which formed the basis of discussion of the convention proposed by Great Britain for the settlement of this dispute. These documents we publish in extento in this day's paper, and it will be perceived that they bear us out in 1 the statement we made a few days since, that the fight of navigating the Columbia is confined te the 1 Hudson Bay Company during its charter, which expires in 1863. There is a mystery hanging over the publication of these documents, that the Senate owe to themselves and the country to explain. An in- | junction of secresy was imposed on all the debates and documents connected with the convention; and before that injunction is removed, and while the Union states that they cannot publish them, we see the secrets ot the Senate Chamber given to the world in a daily public journal. How did this take place 1 Which member of the Senate has , abused thn trust r?nnui1 liim orwl 1 parliamentary usage and moral obligation so outrageously as to give publicity to these important j documents 1 We trust the Senate will investigate the matter, and promptly expel the offender. It was but a ^ year or two ago that a similar outrage was perpetrated, and an important treaty published in a ' Wall street paper before the injunction of secresy ; was removed from the Senate. Affairs in Mexico.?The letters that have appeared in the London Timet from Mexico, have lately attracted somo attention; and it will not, I therefore, be uninteresting to bo made acquainted with the writer. The correspondent is Mr. Thomas Worrail, a native of Liverpool, England. He is a very intimate friend of Mr. Morphy, the genUeman who has gone to Mexico on a secret mission from England. He is also well known to Mr. Paken- ; ham, lately the British Charge d'Affaire*, in Mexi. j co ; and we think it possible, that Mr. Pakenham ! may have him pointed out to the proprietors of the Timet, as a fit and proper person to correspond 1 with them. We believe that Mr. Worrail went to Mexico in 1334, as partner in an English commercial house; but three years afterwards he left it, and commenced business on his own account as bill broker, and agent for the sale of government securities. Hitherto he has done pretty wen, ana u Santa Anna were restored to power, would be much better. The Timn could not have chosen a better repreventative in Mexico than Mr. Wo'rall, for he moves in the first circles there, has access to the best sources of information, and possesses great literary, as well as commercial attainments. Capital Potnsh.mxnt.?We notice that Howard, the murderer, who was lately hanged in New Hampshire, stated before his death that had he known that he was to have been hung, he would not have committed the murder ; his idea being that the law had been altered, and the sentence would be imprisonment for life. This in a measure explains the feeling which desperate murderers have in relation to their pnnishment. The idea that the dread of life imprisonment is ?o great as that of death, is absurd in the extreme. The fact Is, that many desperate characters in these days of " reform," plan and commit mur- | der, with the explicit belief that the Fourier and 1 universal abolition philosophers of the present time, will exert themselves in their behalf, and obtain for them full pardon, or a commutation of punishment to imprisonment for life. The new theories which have been lately broached upon the subject of capital punishment, have spread themselves among all classes of society, so that even judges and jurors are tinctured with them. Understanding this feeling, and knowing that so soon as arrested as a murderer, he will excite the sympathies of a class of sickly sentimentalists, a man who is so hardened as tocommit a murder, is willing to risk his chance of hanging, fully believing that the various causes we have mentioned will prevent it. If murderers were sure that death would be the certain result of their crime, they would be much lesa abundant than at present. < 'ALIVOMIA ExPBniTIo*.? A* fnlnnel Stm?n- I non's regiment is now completed, they will be prepared to muster in a few days. It was a mistake of one oi the Wall street papers, which stated that they mustered at the Arsenal Yard on Tuesdayafternoon. They will, probably, muster on Monday or Tuesday next, when they will immediately proceed to Fort Hamilton ; when, after drilling a few weeks, they will sail for the Pacific. Several of the companies have been inspected; and, taken as a whole, they are as flnelooking and capable a set of men as ever marched in their country's service. As the razee Inde- | pendenoe, is to mil from Boston for the Pacific, on or before the 9th of August next, it is highly probable that she will aot as a eon voy to the expedition. She bears the broad pennant of Com. Shu brick. NaimjcxxT SnrrxuM. ? The old board of brokers appropriated two hundred and fl I ty dollars for the relief of the sufferers by the recent fire in Nantucket. This is liberal, and very creditable to the members of that body. We would like to see the rich religious corporations of this city cr-ie forward and do the same thing .When any oL-n table object is to be accomplished, the stockbrokers of this city are invariably the first to move in the marter. There is much mere virtue | a wan Kreer tn*n r.n? aeruxen* o! that plane )? * endit for The Progress of the Revolution In Knflmnd? The Democratic Tendency of the Ago. The course of parties and events in England for the last few years, and particularly since the French revolution and the downfall of Napoleon, has been of such a character as to excite the interest and attention of the rest of th? world. The extraordinary occurrences tha*. marked the rile and progress of that great eveut, are yet fresh in the memory of tnany of the present generation, who saw, for the first time in the world, a great nation suddenly throw off the shackles that hound them, for centuries, at the feet of an aristocracy ; and at the mayic command of a man, whom the circumstances of the time raised from obscurity to be the deposer of crowns and kingdoms, marshal their strength, and inflict the most signal retribution on their oppressors throughout Europe. These results directed men's minds into n new channel of thought. - The divine right of kings to goverti was freely and openly discussed by the masses of the people ; the result of which was that the majority discarded it, and many who religiously believed in its existence, were induced to be carried with the majority,and alter their opinions by the force of example. The same results, too, operated on kings and rulers. The signal example proiuced by the revolution, and the immense power that a leader, whose authority was based upon the affections of his people, had ncquired, taught them that any government that legislated for the interests of a few, at the expense of the many, was liable to be overturned by a combination of the elements of discordand, dissatisfaction among the body of the people. These few remarks will prepare the reader to give his attention to the history of England for the last few years, and will enable him to perceive that the mighty changes that have occurred , in that country within that time are traceable to the lessons taught by the French revolution, and me progress 01 democratic principles. The first ?f these measures of change or reform was what is commonly called the Emancipation i Bill. The agitation of a change in the laws of England, by which five wr six millions of people were placed on a religious equality with the rest of the nation, was commenced by a man of the people, whose influence was derived from the hold he had on their affections and respect. This moasurc was granted when the body of the people insisted tipon it, and was a severe blow to the religious aristocracy. The aristocracy sustained another blow by the 1 passage of the income tax and the Catholic endowment bill, both of which created a tremen- 1 dous excitement at the time they were proposed. These were blows aimed directly at the aristocracy or privileged few, and cat off some of the perquisites they had enjoyed from time immemorial. Sir Robert Peel was always an admirable tactician, and knew how to try the pulse of the nation in the most accurate and scientific manner. The masses had suffered so much from taxation that the people were ready to rebel; and when the exi- 1 gencies ot an expensive government required furthnr loviua tn fill >*j ^ ? ?1 ? *' *~ ----- .W..WW ^ tut Itg vuiic:i?y UC tllUSC I UlUCT IU J)fOpose a measure that would inflict this additional burden on the aristocracy, than encounter n revolution that might have followed a proposal to inflict greater taxation on the masses. The expert- ; ment succeeded, and was followed by others of a ' more extraordinary kind. We come now to the principal movement in favor of the masses. For centuries the people of Great Britain had suffered from the odious corn | law system, which prevented the importation of food, even in case of a famine, anless at a rate ; that would prevent all competition with the aristocratic landed interest ol that country. But the people knew their own strength, and were determined to have the odious system repealed. They accordingly marshalled their forces, and placed themselves under the direction of one of their own number ; and in the short space of five years, so vigorous a front did they show, and so great was the pressure against the system, that the first Minister of the government, himself, proposed the repeal of those very laws which he had himself hitherto supported and upheld, and carried it successfully through all opposition. Here then we see a tremendous triumph by the masses over the privileged few ; and a case, too, that threatens the loss ol the North America^ colonies of Eng- , land. We think from all these premises it is safe to say that the great masses ?f the English people are gaining strength every year?that the people are beginning to get the asccndancy, or in other words that the country is in a state of transition, ! and is emerging from a state of aristncracv t/i ? state of democracy?shaking off the excrescences , of centuries, wiping off the cobwebs of old usages and privileges, and are determined to imitate the example of their kindred in the western world.? In confirmation of this view we refer our readers to an editorial article which lately appeared in the leadirg English paper, the London Timet, ol the 25th ult. It is as follow*:? It is po(tibia that the crisis ?a are approaching may be t pasted m dry-shod aa soma former embarrasamenta.

There will ahortiy be a universal demand that the business of this great empire shall be put on aome more stable and regular footing. It cannot afford to wait while political nvsls are settling or aggravating their diflerencea, fortifying their positions, adjusting and amoothing their ruffled consistenciea, or otherwise consulting their private convenience. It requires s greater conunuity and certainty of operation. The words in this article marked in italias are i full of meaning, when we take the other matters mentioned in this article into consideration. The fact is, that England is in a state of transition, and many of the present day may live to see it a democratic country ; it will b? interesting to watch the progress of the election that will take place in that oountrv in the event of the dissolution of Parliamen; and it will be equally interesting to ascertain the result of the elections which are to take place in Franoe on the first of next month. The progress of democratic sentiment is so rapid in these two nations, that even the elections now anticipated may indicate that the democratic feeling strikes deep?r into the hearts of the people than many would fain be- I lieve. The a (fairs of Europe were never of such absorbing interest to the American as now.

Additional IV?wa from Mexico?'The ProepeoMr* Return of lanU Anna* [Translation* from the Havana Papers.) A vessel which sailed from Vera Cruz, attemptiug to break the blockade, was seized by the boat* of the blockading squadron. In the chase, every thing was thrown overboard with the exception of a few boxes of pitch ; even the water was started. The crew of the vessel captured were afflicted with seurvv. On the 30th June, an America* sloop-of-war arrived at Vera Cruz, and anchored wiihin sight of the fort; the name day, an American brig-olwar was seen standing in the direction of the IslaVerde, under full sail. Names not given. The Diario del Gobierno announced that General Mrjia had t>een appointed commander-inchief of the army in the North. On the 19th ult.,several hoits of the blockading squadron lauded at Anton Liaardo, near Vera Cruz, and endeavored to purchase a supply of beef?but the owners near, refused to enter into any trade. However, the boat* carried olf by force a cow and three sheep. " They would afterwards have repeated the attempt,"savs the Mexican journal, " but a detachment of cavalry arriving, deterred the boats from another act of ' violenco. On the 21st the diplomatic corps were received by and paid their respects to the new President. A letter from Monterey, statea that a force under General Taylor comprising 6000 men, four heavy pieces of artilleryfefluid 30 wagons, had proceedrd to Reynosa, for fne purpose of establishing a permanent depot.

Guzman had succeeded in dispersing the forces under Sr. Juan Alvarez. The last accounts had represented the province as being restored to present quiet. The revolutionary party were concentrated at Guadalajara. At the Isla-Verda on the 18th, there were collected several vessels of war. An American fri- | gate and brig among them. At Sacrificios, an j English steamer and sloop; a Spanish frigate and brig, and a French brigand sloop. Another English frigate was also met near the harbor. The Mexican papers were full of lists of donations for the sustaining of the war. The Ctfmanches and Lipans still continued their depredations In the Departments of Durango and Chihuahua. A military force sent agaipst them had been routed, it was stated that the enmity of the Indians was excited by Americans, as several had been seen with their attacking parties. On the 23d, a severe shock of an earthquake was felt at Vera Cruz, but without causing any damage. EXTRACT FROM A LETTER OF SANTA ANNA. " Should the fortreia of San Juan d'Ulloa second the many call* upon ma from other portions of Mexico, it will be deemed decided evidence that my country is convinced that, in banishing, great injustice haa been done to me. So direct a mode of annouucing my innocence of having shaped my public course in no instance, except in the way believed moat conducive to the good of the republic, must occasion me to feel it obligatory upon me to obey with earnest affection the wishea of the nation; and I will immediately proceed from this to the post in question. As, however, it naa not been my uesire to inienere wnn ine measure! 01 uie proeut administrator of my country's destinies, it will not be expected of me to enter Mexico unless I have the counte ; nance and (upport of the gallant soldiery and citizens of the fortress and city of Vera Cruz. "General Parades was instrumental in supplanting my own government with that of Hen-era; his having himself, subsequently, supplanted the government which overthrew mine, is proof, en hi* part, that he alio did me injustice; and, inasmuch as I am aware of the existing necessity for whomsoever is in power, to consider it, by virtue or the oath of office, obligatory upon him to'uphold his position, I shall deem the measures which General Pareues may consider requisite to avert my return, as in no way personal towards myself, but as acts,which, i by law, he is called upon to perform, in order to sustain it. I shall not, therefore, deem General Paredes my enemy. My wishes are for the prosperity of my country." [From the New Orleans Picayune, July 12.1 By the arrival of the revenue cutter McLane, Captain Howard, we have received advices from Havana to the 2d inst. and have gathered from the officers of the cutter some hints as to the designsof Santa Anna upon Mexico, and other information of interest from the Island of Cuba. We ara glad to be informed by Captain Howaid that there is not the least prospect that privateers will be allowed to be fitted out at Havana to depredate upon American commerce. It is the firm determination ot the Spanish admiral to allow no evasion of the treaties between Spain and the United States. This determination the officer* of the McLane have no doubt he will re- i ligiously adhere to, and Castilisn faith i* proverbial. In regard to the two Mexican (teamen lying at Ha- I vana, they are still protected bv the English colors which they array. They have been offered for sate to the authorities of the island, and the probability is that the Captain General will purchase the iron vessel, > the Guadaloupe. The Montezuma is said to be " hogged" and of course not worth much. Neither of them will be allowed to leave Havana with the intent to cruise against our commerce. It was the general belief in Havana that upon the anival of the English steamer ef the 0th inst., for Vera t Ion fianta Ann. A laa... ? ?Uk VI. Iriend* Almonte and Rejon, for Mexico. This determination on the part of the ex-President hai been formed upon hii receiving anurancei that the Castle of San Juan de Ulloa would, upon his arrival, declare in hia favor. Gen Santa Anna expressed himself freely In regard to the war with the United State*, and avowed hii resolution of doing all in hi* power to prosecute it vigorously against ua. Tbia is in fact the only course which he can purine under the circumstance* in which Mexico ia placed, for ao inflamed i* the animosity of the Mexicans at present gainst tbe United State* that it would be fatal for a public man directly to attempt to stem the current. Frem all that we can learn of tbe tone of feeling in Mexico, tbe two great Departments of Vera Cruz and Tamaulipas have lor nne time been ripe for throwing off tbe yoke of Paredes, and placing Santa Anna again in power. Intelligent gentlemen here, familiar with the politica of the country, anticipate confidently that the next arrival will bring ua new* that Tamaulipa* ha* already revolted, under Uea. Parrodi, who i* a fait iriond of tbe ex-President. Our previou* advice* from the Department on the Pacific, and the latest menage of Paredei himself, have hown ui how exteniive is the disaffection there. We look then for the downfall of Parede* at an early day. It was the general opinion in Havana, and circumstance* seemed to warrant the supposition, that Santa Anna would aail for Vera Cruz in the English brig of war Darien; but Capt. Howard doubts if, under the circumstances, the commander of that vessel would assume the responsibility of taking him to Mexico.

The Toiacco Insfectio* Blmldino.?This is a splendid building, situated at foot ef Clinton street, where all tobacco cargoes, landing in this port, undergo the ordeal of inspection. As a public department it embraces a very important branch ot our commercial business, and possesses vast capabilities for the transaction of this important branch of trade. In moving along the wharves, one ia struck with the perpetual bustle and activity that prevail in thia vicinity. The vessels from the southern port* all put in at the wharves here, also the Great Biitain and Great Western, and the large cargoes of tobacco brought, from the south are stowed up in the building.

Thi* enormoui bulk ef building hai alio an attic itory. and there is a mite of ground cellar*, for the atorage of *ugar, molaises, kc , which are both high and dry. These cellar* are nine in number, each 147 feet 'deep by 20 feet wide, and are, it appear*, excavated from the utural toil. The pauage of (he Warehou'e law will, we understand, give it an additional importance. A Nbw Fountain ?Sealed propoial* will be received at thi* office, and at the office of the atreet inspector, for erecting a fountain in the large sheet of water in Nasiau stroet, directly opposite our office.

The evil, however, Is not yet cured, and we hope Mr. Mlckle will carry out the measures of his predecessor, by ?ta- | tioning a competent force of the Star police at the numerous steamboat landings. The landing at the foot of Courtlandt street requires a stronger police to be there at the time the Philadelphia trains come in, than there generally is.
