NEW YORK HERALD. \cw York, 'rural* y, July '-JS, 1N4H, THE HERALD FOR EUROPE W 1 T 11 TWO SPLENDID EMBELLISHMENTS We are now engaged in preparing an edition of this valuable publication for.our aubscribera, to lend to Europe by the (team ahipe t ambria, which will leave Boston, and the Great Britain, which will leavo thia port, neat Saturday. Thia sheet will contain the latest intelligence from the .A.rmy, from Mexico generally, and from our Gulf Squadron, together with tliq proceedings in Congress, the de bate oa the tariff, and the futo of this irreat measute which occupies at present so much attention in tho Old World as well as the New. Also the latest intelligence from Canada, lie. The illustrations will he of a su|x?rior order, and will consist of a view of the city ot Matumoras, and another aplendid engraving. The edition for the Cambria will he ready at one o'clock on Friday afternoon ; the edition lor the Great Britain will be ready on Saturday,at twelve o'clock.and will contain one day later intelligence, from all parts of the South. We would temind the advertising public, of the advantages the Herald for Europe offers them, for making their business known in Europe. Advertising, now that the connection with the Old World is so easy and rapid, is almost as necessary for toe other side of tho Atlantic as tor this. We receive subscriptions for the Herald for Europe separately, from our regular daily and weekly Issues. The Clly of Malamorus. Tho beautiful engraving of Matamoras, which we have had prepared at considerable expense, will be given in to-morrow's Herald. The Tariff.?'The Pate of Use New Bill?Ita Defeat, All eyes are turned to the seat of Oovcrnmcnt. The result of the vote on this question is looked for every moment, and every moment it is delay, ed adds to the excitement. Wo have been in suspense long enough, and shall feel gready relieved when the long agony is over. Tlie present tariff act passed the Senate by one vote, and the bill now under consideration wil| bo disposed of by about the satne vote. The question now hangs upon the vote of Mr. Jarnagin, of Tennessee, and every one asks what course , he will pursue. It is the impression that he will either resign or vote against the new bill; but the probability is that an attempt will be made to postpone the question until the next term, and that he will vote for the postponement. Should he not resign, and u vote upon the direct question be taken, the chances would be ngainst the tie^ bill, as he is opposed to it in its present shape. The idea of a compromise has been abandoned. The vote will be upon the whole or none. The democratic party have determined to sink or awiin with this question; and if they carry the bill, it will be a mill-stone about their neck. It is the pet bill of the session; and the business affairs of the country will be more affected, for good or lor vil, by it than any other belore either House. The ehang?s die new bill \\ ill produce in our commercial affairs are to be feared more than tiny thing else; if it was not for that, very few would take any interest in the movement. By preserving the present bill, all things will go on smoothly in the chaiuuls they now are; while a repeal of that act, and the adoption of another so much different, will require a revolution in all the old laud-marks, and bring into operation n new state of things. We are opposed to these changes. They invariably produce embarrassments and d.ffiaulties; and it is better policy to suffer even a defective law to remain, than to create a revul eion in mercantile matters, by establishing, what may be considered by many, although not in fact, a better. Infallible remedies as frequently kill the patient as the disease. So far as we are able to judge, by the proceed, ings in the Senate, yesterday, there is very little doubt but that the tariff bill, as it enme from the lower House, will be defeated. The votes upon the several amendments proposed, indicate pretty clearly that result. The democrats appear to be afraid to come to a vote upon the direct question. Everything, however, is yet in doubt. It is possible the whole thing will be settled to-day,?ne way or the other. T1 1' * - " ' x uc proceedings in me nouse yesteruay were not very interesting or important. The bill of appropriations was under discussion, and an adjournment took place without coining to the question. Lkoislatiox of Claims.?Tuere is not a session passes over in Congress without days and weeks being occupied in the legislation of claims. Now we know of nothing more vexatious, not only to the holders of these claims, but to the public in general.'than the protracted and frequently unjust legislation upon them. If a claim be preferred by a citizen, or by a bod/ of citizens, for serx vices done the government, nine times out of ten there is no difficulty in determining whether said claim be just or not. If the claim be an unfair one, it should be promptly set aside; if, on the other hand, it is proved a just demand upon the government, it should be as promptly discharged. It is as much the duty of a government to reward the meritorious as to punish the guilty ; else what incentive is there to meritorious conduct. There has been heretofore, on the part of our government, a degree of dishonorable stinginess? in fact, a want of honesty toward claimants?not beggars for favors, hut creditors who have demanded their just dues. It has been a source of ?i,ainc iu \jui Liuicus iii me i.iee oi me world. II' a government set examples of dishonesty and want of fairness in its dealings with its own subjects, what can be expected from its citizens in their dealings with one another 1 We know of one man who has been prosecuting a claim with Congress for a period of thirty years ! Now how can such monstrous imbecility exist t Either his claim is just, or it is not. It the former, let him be paid the sum of sixty thousand dollars, which he claims ; if the latter, let him and his claim be promptly discharged. What is the truth in respect to legislation on claims. Are the protracted discussions which they frequently give rise to, caused by a want of lilierality on the part of the government?a desire to economise, at the expense of honesty and justice! It has been so considered ; now what is the real state of the case! Why, the expenses of legislation upon an individual claim have often exceeded the amount of the claim ! Nay, more. The legislation upon an individual claim lor the prico of a single horse, cost the government more money than would have purchased all the horses required during the revolutionary war This is a fact, and not by any means an isolated one, as hundreds of other claims, daily brought before oar Congress, far exceed their own amount in legislative expenses. Will not something be done in this matter!? Why nan we not have a regular court of claims! A judiciary consisting of three members, or more, 1 whooould of themselves attend to this expensive bu-iness, which, after all, can hardly be considered a subject of representative legislation The salaries of three judg e, appointed lor this purpose, would not be an item, when compared with the amount which our Congress annually spends in "claim legislation." 1nt*llio?wce from Mkxico.?We give, on the outside of this day's paper, lull particulars ol the intelligence received yesterday from Mexico via New Orleans. It will be seen that it is no later than that brought by the Harmonious Walker, which arrived here last week from Ha<*nne, but ?M?la 4mu1 Highly lni?r(?Un| from the Oregon Ten* ?ory We have, through various ' hannela within thi last few days, received news from the far west which gives us a better insight into the situatiot of it* inhabitants than we have before been pos sesscd of, and we must acknowledge we are t little surprised at the rapid strides being made b; them to commercial and political importance From our natural ideas of a new country, am the various discussions arising from this one par ticulurly, we should almost have imagined thn what few settlers there might be, were a sort c a detni-savage race, living on gaine, fighting will Indians, and scattered about, without any niori law or clothing than nautre had originally givet them; but iu truth, to judge from our late ac counts, we tind that the inhabitants are a ver; quiet, intelligent, public spirited set of beings working industriously through the day, attendmi bulls or u theatre in the evening, and sleeping soundly and undisturbedly at mght. There are now in the Oregon Territory ove GOOD Americans; G grist and B saw mills, and i large surplus of agricultural products. A brisl commerce is carried on with the Saiulwicl 1-lands. At Paget'# Sound, a party ol emigrant 1 had settled on a tract ofland,which is repr< sentet as exceedingly productive for the distance oi six'] sv.Lj . illu hu.l a, mo iinun nf tliM utut?< nt thi ""Ik " i ^ y country we find in the growing importance o Oregon City. Tliis city now possesses 500 soul." about 80 houses, two churches, two biacksinnl shops, lour tailor shops, n hatter a tanne-y, threi hoe shops, two silversmith*, four stores, two flour intr and two saw nulls, and a lath machine. A pos otilce has bcenestablished, which conveys letters Si miles for 15 cents ; and the City ol Oregon itself lnt obtained an act ol incorporation ; upon which tin editor ol the semi-monthly (for there will alway: be nn editor and a newspaper where there is out Yankee to write and another to read) adtnouishe the corporators as follows: " Oentleincn, dig U| the stumps, grace the streets, tax dogs, proliibi hogs, and advertize in the paper." New Yorl might nvail herself of the same advice. The taxe are allowed to be paid in wheat, deliverable a certain depots, among which the warehouses o the Hudson's Bay Company are mentioned alont with tno?e of the American traders. Another very agreeable leature connected wit! their growing prosperity, is the good feeling exist ' ing between our own countrymen and the Eng lish. The Americans during their national festivals, invite the British olKc.ers to their parties and their balls ; in return, the English gentlemen Iron: Fort Vancouver take turn with the naval officer! in dancing with the pretty Auierh-an girls on board Her Majesty's ship Medeste. The utmost exten of concord prevails, and very seldom even an al Ins,on to any probability of hostile feeling or hos tile collision. The most exciting topic seems t< there, a* with us, whether the State should o shoiiid not .prohibit the use and manufacture o ardent spirits. Meetings were held by both par lies, one aemanumg uiai iuu win ui ui? maiuukj 1 should govern the appetites of the few, and the minority proclaiming any prohibition unconstitu | tional. Personal controversy lor pi 'ce is not entirely | unknown, nor does the difference ol longitude appear to make any great change in the charactei or the arguments used by the parties to the dis pute. Thus we find that J. L. Meek, ex-Sherill ofOregon, like all other Ex's, demands nothing but justice. The Provisional Government has been organized by choosing George Abernethy, formeriy o i New York, Governor; John E- Long, lrom Ken ' tucky, Secretary: Peter 11. Burnett, from Mis sou-i, Circuit Judge. The first messnge of the first governor of OreI gon we give at length, as it will show the position resources, and expectations of the territory :? governor's message. To the Honorable the Legislative Assembly of Oregon. Fellow Citizens .?Allow me to congi"?*1"**? you 01 your return to this place, agaiu to enter on the importaii duties assigned to you by your constituents. By the latest dates we hare from the Unit**! States, ' are informed that the affairs of Oregon still remain un I settled, 110 arrangement having, as yet, been enured int( ; between the United States and Great Brit*'u> axir.g tht i boundary lines between the two Government*In my last message. I suggested leveral B'teration? ii 1 the militia law, and would again call your at,0ntion t< . the suhject. At presout, all is peace and qui?luess ; but should anything occur requiring the aid of the military everything should be ready for immediate a?d prompt action. i The currency is another suhject on which you will b< : called to act. Th-taleg-il tender should be provide) for the payment of liabilities, besides gold and aiiver, wi are all aware. The precious metals are very scarce it this country, and by most persons not to he had. Wha shall be the legal tender is an important quoitionfor tot to decide. If ull the articlea produced, raised and manu factured in the country, are made legal tendeia, no per son will sell anything he has to dispose of, unless theri is a special contract drawn up, designating how, and ii what manner the seller is to receive his pay ; this wil cause much inconvenience to both parties Wheat, ii my opinion, should he the only article used in this couc try as a legal tender, in addition to gold and aiiver. It ii at present, the staple article of our country?can be pre cured by all tho settlers in abundance, can he readil; disposed of by the merchants and others, and is not perishable article. The next question is, where shall the article or art! cles made a legal tender, he delivered ? If the deutor i allowed the privilege of delivering wheat at any poin i'ii uiu iiiivi^Huie rivers, ami ruereuy uiicnarf; ng ni I debt. it will throw nil the trouble of getting it to mark* i on the receiver: this should not be ; the tiouble thoulc dcvolvo on the one who, by delivering hit produce, it relieved from hi* liability. Oregon City it at presen the business place, and for the convenience of all par ties, would, in my opinion, be the bast depot for thi i country. Other articles and other places of deposit cai bo agreed upon between parties who are transacting business together Our business it to provide for a man who. being in debt to another, is pressed for silver, an< informed that nothing el?e will answer in payment?wt must in some way provide to relieve him lrom this did! culty; but, in doing this, we should be cautious not t< throw the door too wide open, lor, in doing so, we ma; break down all confidence, and do more injury than good. We are visited occasionally by vessels for trade, and other purposes. I think it would be well to have an olflcor appointed to reside at the mouth of the river, whose duty it should be on the arrival of aov vessel, to board her'and deliver the Captain a copy of the law relating to the sale, Sir.., of ardent spirits many complaints hav? come from the inhabitants at the mouth of the river stating that spirituous liquors have been distributei among the Indians from different vessels, causing mucl excitement among the Indians, and, in one case, leadin; to a war between two parties of them. It ceonot be ez pected that a stranger on hissu-rival should be acquamtei with the law on this subject; and he may deal out ti Indians, aDd others,enough to do a great deal of mis chief, before he becomes acquainted with it, unless romi steps are taken by you to inform him. The officer s< appointed could inform the proper authorities, should thi I aptain then persist in selling liquor, and the necessary steps to enforce the law could then be takeu. 1 here should be a Sealer of Weights and Measure Xinted ; and no weights or measures used in tin ny, excepting such as are stamped by him. By thi means, a uniformity in our weights and measures wouli be brought about, and one source of complaint removed The boundary lines between some of the districts havi not been defined, and persons living near the borders o such districts, do not really know in which distiict the; reside. 1 would call your attention to this subject, the you mav examine into it, and define the boundary lines. it will be necessarv to deckle upon and locate the sea of government the present session. I would recommen that a committee be appointed b> your body, at an earl; day, to take this matter into consideiatioo.

The Cambria is the fastest 4 vessel of the Cunard line, and with the exception mi ^ i ofthe last trip of the Great Britain, has performt ed the distance from Europe and America, in the i ne s shortest time on record. i 1 j: The Great Britain, as our readers already M j I know, has taken the wind out of the sails of all ! pii the other steam ships, and with her submerged ! Jj i propellor has managed to outstrip all competi- I tion, every thing considered. j thi Many persons are disposed to believe that the I Jjj recent quick trip of this vessel is owing more to bo favorable circumstances than the good working of her submerged propellor, and are inclined ta ! doubt whether she will be as successful on her thi homeward as she has been on her outward trip, jjjj The doubts on this subject will be solved by the 1 result of her next trip to England, and we under- of stand that bets to a large aniount are pending on jjj the time she will make. Some have wagered ch thnt she will beat the Cambria, and vice versa. For our own part we do not approve of racing, j'h? but we certainly look forward with much interest tw ) i to the result, inasmuch as it will establish the r | practical advantage of the two modes of propul- Br sion?the side wheels and the screw.

Mr Ciapo accompanied the report with eome it remarks. i id Mr. Boiwosth wished Mr. Crapo to state why so largo a aum as $14,500 was required. He tueught $10,000 ie would be sufficient. ir Mr. i RAfo said the school-houses lately erected coat that sum. and experience showed them that a schoolt, bouse could not bo erected and furnished fur less, u Mr. Buctcxr.a, alter some remarks, moved to amend i- the resolution by making $10,000. instead of $14,500 Mr Weir objected to the amendment. He aaid he had j been a school tiustee ; houses were put up under bis direction, and he knew that a school-house with all the J, new improvements, could not be put up for $10,000 ; he, therefore, hoped that the trustees of the 13th ward would , be allowed to build the school accoid.ng to their own plans and estimates. J. | Mr. Blekcsee again rose, and askod the gcDtlemsn < from the 13th, "Mad they procured estimates?' Ho ie was leplied te in the negative. Me then contended that I they ought to have advertised, and procured estimates, S id belore any appropriation was asked for. Me went un to contend, that if a grant of $14 500 was now made, it o would advertise all the contractors in the city, they r would necessarily tnko advantage ut' it, and send in their i J. projiosali accordingly. He wished that $10,000 might c now be granted, and if it should turn out that there was a r any dehciencv, another application could be made to the t Board, and a further appropriation made. 1 d The question on the amendment waa then put, and 8 ie voting in the affirmativo, and 14 ia the negative, it was v ). lost. t {. Mr. Dknfiy moved an amendment to the following >f effect, to wit:?That the school officers of the 13th ward < should, hofore any appropriation be made, procure plans >f and specification* of the building.

Mr Harris then read from the report, the branches of education taught in these seminaries, and then went on to sentark that none of > the highei branches of education were Might there, that is mathematics, astronomy, mineralogy, be lie coutinuod to say that it was singular that a school claiming tho chuiarter of a grammar school, did not (each any if the in branches of learning he had mentioned; and it was also r- an astounding fact, that in such a city as this, containing a haif a million of inhabitants, there were but two coiie leg's, and that in those two colleges there were but 'a47 jt pupils, ami tnat the greater ponton of them did not heat lung to this city. Mr. Hariis pioceeded at some length in 1 id suppoit of the resolution, which w a- unanimou-ly adopit tea. and vlessrs.
