The session of Congress just closed has been re- ' initkablo for the many important measures perfrOted, defining the financial and commercial poicy of the government. Attempts have been re- ! peatedly, heretofore, made, to place our financial ; and commercial systems upon a better basis, but ' they partially failed; and it remained for the first ?e*6 on, of the new administration, to perfect f > ? J .W. ?. of these important branches of the government. Changes have repeatedly been made in ti e talff, different systems have frotn time to time \ been adopted for the regulation of the finances < f the Government, but at no session of Congress lias there been such a series of measures adopted, as at that just closed. We allude particularly to the ad valorem tariff, tho Warehousing bill and the Independent Treasury bill. These 1 three art? all important; but the greatest of these ia the Independent Treasury act, as that regulates the operations of all others. The Warehouse bill is a kind of auxiliary to the tariff, and, in connection with the Treasury bill, will have a very favorable influence upon our foreign trade, and prevent those sudden and ruinous fluotuatic&s in the upply of foreign merchandise, which have heretofore been so frequently experienced. The manufacturing and commercial clashes generally attach very little importance to those laws regulating the tinancos of the Government; they appear to think that the tarid' and the tariff alone, has every thing to do with the trade and commerce of the country, when it is but a secon- j dary mutter, compared with those laws affecting the value and volu me of the circulating medium. The manufacturers Ubor under the impression that their interests depend upon the rate of duty upon foreign labrirs imported into the country, whereas it they would look a little deeper into the subject, they would lind that the rate of duty ha.l. In fact, very littie to do with the extent of our foreign trade; and that our importations are regulated more by the value of our currency than by the duty. If we could only impress the importanoe and force of this fact upon the minds of the manufacturing closes, we should not hear so much hereafter about the tariff as we have during the ptiit lew months. It cannot be denied but that the enormous inflation in the currency ot the country, from 1834 'o 1337, had an immense influence in producing the enormous importations of those years. In 1834,'36mid '36 the tariff was highly protective,mucti more so than the net of 1S42 has been since the lust year of its opeiation, notwithstanding wh.ch the importations in 1835 and *36 were more than double what they have been any two yes^s since. From 1838 to 1842 ihe rariff ranged below J* revenue point, averaging in 1841 and '42 only about fifteen per cent on the aggregate importations, notwithstanding which the importations were only about one half the value of those when the duty averaged above thirty per cent. What was the cause of this change, this great falling off in the extent of our importations! It was nothing else but the changes in the currency, which had been as great as those in our foreign trade. According to the theory of the protectionists and free traders, the whole course of our foreign trade from 1832 to 1842, should have been directly the reverse of what it was. They find no place in their theory lor the operation of those laws regulating the currency; they never dream of the effect ofthatfiifluence, and their calculations, therefore very freq lently fail. It is our opinion that the In dependent Treasury act will have a more important bearing upon the extent of onr importations, and upon our foreign trade generally, than the oew tariff, about which so much has been said and written; and if those depending upon protection will turn round and use their influence, for th* purpose of bringing into existence, and pre .erving a nounu currency, upon n pure specie bans, they will do more towards "hutting out of our markets foreign fabrics, coming iute competition with similar articles of domestic manufacture, that they could accomplish with all the tariffs in creation. Army Affair#?The Disbanding of thk Voi-unrK?R9 ?The public is already acquainted wi'li the fact that the disbanding of the six months' volunteer?, who entered the field at the first breaking out of hostilities with Mexico,has caused a great deal of dissatisfaction ; and the admini*tration has been severely censured for the action it took in the premises. We think that in an emergency like the present there should be perfect unanimity, as far as it is possible, in supporting the government in prosecuting die war, with all the means placed at its disposal, in order to conquer a peace as speedily as possible; and diat no censure, either direoy>r implied, should be employed, unless on grounds that did not admit of dispute. Such is not the case in discharging the six mouths' volunteers. It will be seen from the letters published Jn another column, and taken from the Washi/ig'on Union, that the government had no alternative, and were obliged to act as it did in discharging thern, however unpleasant it may have been. Before the passage of the act of the 13tb of May last,' the government could not legally require these volunteers to serve longer than three months, unless they themselves reinlisted foi twelve months under that law. This they refused to do, and hence the government found it incumbent to discharge them. If, after the expiration of three months, they should still be in the service of the United States, serious dif acuities might *row out ol it??? ,? the event of iiny net of insubordi ittion or mutiny occurring, whioh should justify shoatinK the offenders, the Oourt martial that tried thein, the otiicert whodii acted the execution, and the file ot soldier* who earned the judgment into effect, would all become Jiable to be tried and punislwd as murderer*. Theee difficulties were apprehended, and for hie, as well as the otlier reasons, it was found neve4*ary to discharge the** mouths' volunteers. * ;*<ti i*i uft^ws.-'iPj ^v*nth regiment of l-niled Stilus volunteers, under command of Colonel J. D. Stevenson, and now encamped on Governor's I?land, has been made in certain quarters, the subject of a variety of false statements and misrepresentations, which we <)eem it our duty, as we can ?lo so officially, to deny and repel. We are sorry to b* obliged to ?tate that a feelinn of j alousy, which doe? not characterize good officers and true men engaged in our common cause, for the weal of a common country, has exited among some of the other regiments, which were organized under the same general requisition upon our State for volunteers. E*ery obstacle which it has been in the power rf man to use, has been thrown in the way of the organization of the regiment In spite of this, however, under the energetic, cool, and determined action of the commandant, the regiment has been formed, officered, and drilled; and a finer looking company of volunteers could scaict-Iy be found in our whole country. The latest report, intended as injurious to the regiment, is one which has been going the rounds 1 of some of the papers for a few days past, to the effect that the three ships intended as transports to the expedition, had been chartered, a.nd that they consisted of vessels which had been condemned, and were, therefore, unseaworthy. So senseless a report we could hardly believe would g-iin any credence among sensible men; but lest this should act ns rirpiiidirial to the nroiriectfl of tlio expedition, we will state, from authority, the real facts in the caso. But one ship has as yet been chartered, although contracts are being made for the other two. This ship ii the Susan Drew, of 700 tons, and wel| known as a fast sailer, and a found vessel. Previous, however, to the contract being closed, so determined was Col. Stevenson that none but per" fectly safe and sound ships should be chartered, j that he caused her to be examined by a board of , naval officers, and the naval architect at the Brooklyn navy yard. This has been done, and the ship found, not only entirely safe, but a fine ship; and she is now being put in extra good order i for the expedition. Certificates havo also been received from the inspectors of all the Marine Insurance companies in Wall street, and signed by the Presidents, stating her to be a perfectly sound vessel. The other two ships will be obliged to undergo the same inspection We trust that none of these foolish reports will be believed. In a common cause, in the service of our oountry, there should he a common feeUng of encouragement and assistance. Col. Stevenson's regiment will proceed to a very important section of our continent, and should be viewed as they r?ftllv nrn?(Uu ninnAOrs in n <u>rvi/?n whinh ulinll the history of the past for example, and which is hourly working tremendous though peaceable revolution on the destinies of mankind?the fruits of which are already coming forth?and yet we have not reached the summit of our greatness, j We have to lulfill the mission wo have but commenced?we have to populate the distant regions of Oregon and California?we have to promulgate our principles of religious and politicaj freedom to the inhabitants of Mexico and South America?in floe wc have to elevate the human 1 family all over the world, to that grand eminence which his Creator intended he should occupy. Elections.?The returns do not vary the renults we have before given. Indiana undoubtedly elects Whitcomb, the democratic Governor, though there may be a whig majority in the legislature, i Graham, whig candidate for Governor, has probably carried North Carolina by from eight 'o ten thousand majority. In Kentucky the whigs have carried the Stale as usual. In Illinois the democrats have elected their Governor, by from two to three thousand majority.

It is highly and deservedly complimentary to the gallant navigator. cause our stars and stripes to wave triumphantly from ocean to ocean. United States Steamers " Spitfire " and " Vixen."?These two war steamer*, built by Messrs Brown arid Bell, of this city, for the Mexican Government, (which failed to fulfill its contract,) having been purchased by tbe United States Government lor the navy, made a trial trip on Thursday. The " Spitfire " left the wharf in a handsome manner, and stood down the East river against a strong tide, running off with ease at the rate of eight or nine miles per hour under reduccd steam (uine inches), which was not increased to her average pressure (fifteen inches) this trip. The | " Vixen " was obliged to anchor shortly after she left the wharf, but,after an hour's detention, went off in fine style. These are two sister steam schooners, of 240 tons each, and will draw but seven feet water with every thing on board. They are propelled by Lightall's improved half-beam engine, of seventy-five horse power. The " Spitfire's" armament is to be composed of one eight inch Pa;xhan,mounted on a pivot torward, and two thirtytwo pounders on the quarter deck. The Vixen " is to mount one long thirty-two pounder on a pivot forward, and two medium thirty-two pounders on the quarter deck. Each is to be manned with a crew of sixty men, and is to be fitted nut with the most ellicient arms, to render them unwelcome visiters t? the creeks and shallow rivers on the coast of Mexico. They will immediately take on board their crews, armaments, and stores, and proceed to the scene of action. Wo expect to hear a good account of them shortly alter their arrival among the Mexicans. Success attend them! The lollowing is n list of their officers. " SriTPOK Jotiah Tattnall, E*q , Commander; Henry J riur'steno, Lieutenant; S. Chute Barney, Acting Matter; John K Duer. James M Ladd.

W#, yesterday, by invitation, mad* one of a party on a pleasure tnp down the bay, in the new plendid steamer Atlantic, soon to be plaoed on the Norwich and Worcester line. She was built by Capt. Vanderbilt, under the direotion ofCapt. , Dustan, whe also ucts us her commander At two o'closk, together with a numerous invited company, we went aboard the noble cralt, and primarily paid our attention to the gorgeous splendor with which every part of this model steamer is decorated Everything seems as though the "magic wand had meved her brilliant beauties into life." Her length is three hundred and twenty-one feet; thirty-lour feet breadth of beamt eleven feet hold, ot about fifteen hundred tons burthen ; her engine is very powerful, and by the trials made, she can walk the water at the 1 rate of 23 miles an hour. Her engines and ma chinery are built by S?oor & Co., of the Novelty 1 works. On entering upon her d ;ck, one it struck with > the neat simplicity which adorns every part of her that is vis.ble. The captain's office, and the ladies' saloon, are among the brilliantly adorned apartments which attract every beholder; but on i ascending the stairs, and reaching the upper saloon, one is almost bewildered with die variety of j magnificent adornments which dazzle the eye.? ' Numerous staterooms line the sides of the saloon, and each is furnished like the chambers of European hotels, and in a far more tasty manner than those of our steamships. The rooms especially set apart for wedding guests, are peculiar, not only for their splendor, but for the comic particu- j j larities of equipment. Every article is apropot, | and seems necessary to the elysium attendant j upon those who " woo and marry but for love." | The saloon itself, with its soil carpets, original settees, and courting couches, with its magnificent 1 mirrers and rich curtains, realise the dreams of j Persian voluptuousness in their acourate details. | , Below, the cabins, running the lull length of the 1 boat, are provided with wide, spacious berths, i with curtains, so arranged that every passenger 1 is, as it were, in his own apartment. Tbe wash j > rooms, and other necessary conveniences, are arranged in a novel and most perfect manner.? \ i Amenitst other inventions wli>ch have been adapt ed to the adornment of this floating c*jtle, one oi' ! the most wonderful it the lighting of the whole | vessel by a hundred and more gas pipes. The I gas is generated on board, and is conveyed to eve- , i ry part of the boat where it may be deemed ne- ' j cessary. After satisfying ourselves that no boat in . i America, or perhaps in the world, could vie in splendor with the Atlantic, we at given notice descended to the dining rooms, where a feast equaling that with which Cleopatra wen the heart of. ; Antony, was spread the length and breadth of the f spacious saloon. Every luxury was there liberali ly displayed, and the wines stood expectant of re1 lease; uniformed waiters stood ready with wil| ling hands; and after adding a hundred passengers to our already numerous number, at Staten Island, the sig al was given to join in a havoc upon fish, flesh and fowl. At the head of the table at which we tound ourselves sen ted, was the noble captain, w 10 directs?and we hope will (or years direct?the m' comings and outgoings of this " queenly maiden of the waters." Near him sat Mr. Holland, tlie energetic and gentlemanly President of the Norwich and Worcester Kailroad Company; and around us were gathered specimens of the lair sex, whose " lips the winds delight to kiss, and linger in their dtdlying." Soon the clash of carving weapons and the pop of champagne corks announced that justice was being done to the glorious feed provided. From five to six hundred were seated at the tables, and by every plate stood a bubbling bottle, wailing 10 be broaoiud. So soon as the appetites i were partly appeased, Capt. Dustan proposed a i toast?" Tue Norwich and Worcester Railroad ' Company"?to which Mr. Holland replied in a lew pertinent remarks, and gave as a toast? "The Ladies." This was drank standing, with three times three; and Mr. Waleott, of the Bowery theatre, bein< called upon, repli d in an adj miralile and eloquent manner to the sentiment. Captain Dunstan then olfered as a toast, "The i Press," which was responded to by a gentleman of the Herald office,. who gave in return the 1 , " Success of Captain Dunstan on the Adantic, | the only tic he will ever have to seek." It is impossible from ttiis time to follow the course of the various toasts proposed. Sixteen or twenty little coteries were formed, and each organised its own proceedings; but we heard the "Array and Navy" given and replied to ia a hnp- i py style, by Samuel Chase Barney, of the Navy, j , grandson of Commodore Barney. Mr. J.J. Sprouli also gave as a toast, ' New York, the only city i which is competent to build a steamer graceful as the Atlantic." Sentiments and corks began to fly too thick to distinguish the sparkling of the one from ihe flashings ol the other, and we retired on deck, and found ourselves again approaching the gooO city ol Gotham. At the North River, most ol the passengers left, but a lew choice spirits remained on board, who j accompanied the steamer to the foot of Ninth ' street. The theatrical and editorial corps wore i well represented ; and the Army and Navy were not wanting. Tne liberal President, Mr.Holland, invited all below, and again the sparkling wine filled and vanished in the crystal goblet. The ; ladies, God bless thein, joined in dances on the main deck, while Lothian's band played soft rau- ; | sic to the tune of the pattering feet. Altogether. 1 ; it was a scene, the like we ne'er perhaps shall ! look on again : and we only hope that the gallant i Captain and the liberal owners may reap a full reward for their enterprise and polite generosity. Taking all in all, the Atlantic ia the most splendid vessel that ever kissed the waters of our bay; her cost is $150,000, ?nd all her arrangements are made regardless of expense, but considerate for the comfort of every class of passengers. Notanim1 provement could we think of that might add to i me [jiutisuru ui muse who travel on mo sound, and il' the steward's endeavors to-day are a specimen of his nsu.il cffects, we pronounce the ' Atlantic as superior tf any vessel that floats on ; the water. , Of Captain Duns an it is unnecessary to speak He is an active, experienced, and gentlemanly officer, whose traits of character are well known to the public. On one occasion we recollect, when mate of the I^exington, during a storm, the tiller . ropes nave way, and the boat became unmanageable ; no one siood ready to descend, and in the raging temnest reeve the guiding ropes, till Dunntan niinselt accomplished the bold undertaking, saving probably the steamer and the lives I of the passengers, (the latter presented him with a gold watch in testimony of their feelings.) Huch a man he is, always ready in case of emergency, and polite to all, be they high or low, i who come under hischarue. We predict that ihe Atlantic will b swell pa- ( I tronized by all who travel on the sound and desire good accommodations, gentlemanly officers, res- i Cectful treatment, nnd quick passages. ForCapt. [ Hilton we hope lo.ig lite, and many means and , < many friends to help him enjoy it.

Oh ! said ?he offi- , cer, I knew you, when you lived in Springfield. " Did ; you 1" she said, " I'm just come from there.'' This ac- ! knowledgment was quite eaotfgh for the officer, who jumped upon the cait along witn the woman, and order- j ed the cartmauto drive to the Chief's office. On searching her person the officer found $1P8 of the stolen money tied up in her handkerchief. In her trunk a number of ; articles were found, such as ladies' diesses and lancy : articles, evidently stolen. Information was immediately despatched back by the telegraph, that tho thief was caught and the money recovered. This has been the first oil'ectual arrest mado by this method, and certainly j proves most conclusively, that lightning goes a " leeile" ahead of railroads as yet. The prisoner was committed by the Chiel of I'olice to await the requiaition of the State of Massachusetts. Burflar\.?

His step-father wat a blacksmith, which trade It waa determined that young Preserved Fith ahould follow; and accordingly, as auon aa ha waa old enough, ha left Portsmouth, R I , and went to New Bedford to pur tue hit education with the sledge-hammer and anvil.? He uted to boait, in after life, of being a practical blacksmith. although ha wat not partial to the trade, whan a boy, as will wp|iear. In those days it wat common for mechanica to own farmt, and to nave their apprentices work ou them in the summer season, which was tha case with younj Kuh's " bott." At the age of nineteen, wuvu uuwiiift iu u?e win U?IU vww u?? "/ Uiia??u, ? tlire a' hit boe an far an be could send it, Bad went directly to a whale ship, which was then ready for lea, and shipped hi self as a aailor before the mast, without the leaat outfit, except the clothe* that he had on. He said that bo " ilept on the soft tide of a plank, during hii first voyage, which wm a abort one, and was determined not to be outdone by any man in hit line ot'duty A* h? had ranaway it wat "neck or nothing" with him, and lie was fully aware he mutt be the aatnor of hi? own fortune. He soon distinguished himsell with the harpaan, and within three yeara trom the time of hit first shipping as a "green nand," he becume master of a whale ship. But he waa favored *o maw hut by circumstances. It muat be recollected that in those days they did not make as long voyages aa tiiuy do now; one year uis about the usual time then, whereas three and four years is not considered long voyage lor a whale ship at the present day. It seems Captain Kith did not like a seafaring life, hut only followed it, as he told the writer, until he could lay up money enough to sot himself up in business on shore, whieh was in about ten years. In the meantime he had managed to save a very handsome lortune. On his leaving tne sea, he commenced business in this city as a shipping and eommiasion ueichant, and dealt largely in oil, and soon became owuer of the line ot packets from New York to Liverpool. Subsequently he associated with him his cousins the (iiinuells, of New Bedford, establishing the house of Fith 8c Orinnell, now Qrinnell St Minturn. About tho year 1035 he retired from business, and took his wife and adopted son, (for he never had any children of his own,) and went to Europe, where he remained fonr years, most of which time he spent in Paris, although he travell d considerably. He was an intimate friend of Lafayette. On hit return to this city, he was elected President of tho Tradesmen's Bank, which office he held to the day of his death, with honor to himself and the institution ; having gained tha name by now, of being one ol tha best financiers in New Yorkcaptain Fish was one year older than Oeneral Jackson, an intimate friend of his, and the Hon. John Quincy Adams, ana a warm supporter ol the tormer during the latter part of his life. We have often heard hint say that he was a republican from his infancy, "having been dved in the wool." He retired fmm the political field alter the last election of General Jackson to the Presidency, until the nomination of President Polk, to whom he gave his most earnest support During his life he had several offices, under government, offered to him, but he always declined; nor would he ever sanction the least fraud in his party, for the purpose of gaining an important election, though be was said to be a most violent politician at one period of his life. He onoe suffered his party to elect him Aldeiman, but would not accept the nominauon for Mayor, or any other office that he was urged to. He was noted for hia bold independence of character throughout his life, to which many of our citizeus can well bear witness, for he spoke his mind in a fearless manner on all occasions. The two following anecdotes will illustrate the mind of the boy and the old man, which are in keeping with many which might be rela:ed ol him at the meridian of lilo, but which would occupy too much room in this place At the time of our revolutionary war with Kngland, Capt. Fish was a small boy, residing with hit grandfather at rortninouth; and at the same time there was a regiment of Hessian soldiers, together with others of the British army, quartered in the same neighborhood, and who, sometimes, greatly annoyed the inhabitants by various insults, robbing their poultry yards, and especially their fruit. Young kish happened one day to be on a vi?it to his uucle Hall's, in the neighborhood, when cherries were beginning to ripen, and ne climbed up to the top of one of the largest trees, where he was busying himself easing the fruit, when there chanced to come along one of the Hessian soldier*, who ordered him. in a very authotative manner to throw down some cherries, which net being complied with, the soldier commenced climbing the tree, and had nearly reached the boy , when he said to him, in the most resolute manner, " if you come up any further, I'll kick your head oft', you infernal British tory." Whereupon the soldier stopped, and actually went down. At the time the merchants of this city gave the complimentary dinner to Lord Ashburton una lion. Dauiel Webster, at the Astor Hou-e, in commemoration of the settlement of the North Kastern boundary question, a short time since, Captain Kish, among other distinguished persons, wai invited The first toast that was drunk was to the Queen of England, out of respect to Lord Ashburton, who was present, which was drank standing, with three cheers, and music. The second toast was given to the President of the Uni'ed States, which w as drank sitting, and in silence; whereupon Captain Fish arose and spoke in a full clear voice?" there is no American spirit existing here?why do you not respect tbe office or the Presi lent ol the United'States, if you don't the man.' I did not support John T> ler, but I respect the office as a true American should " He then walked out of the room, followed by some others. Considerable was said about the occu< renre at the time through tbe papers. Captain Fish was a ' cry libertl man, but was rather eoccntric in giving to the needy; he would not give when it was to be known or noised about; he once gave one thousand dollars to one of our public institutions, on condition that there should be no record made of it, or notice through the papers. At the time of the yellow fever and the cholera in New York, he sent his family out oftown, and remained himself, and did all he could for the poor, going about among them, and trying to make them comlortabie. He was mirried three times in the course of his life; he has now left a w idow, and the son of his adopted sou, who is now about thirteen years old, and whom be has adopted, and prooably left most of his large fortune. atttvirt to Cbcatk a rrrnlt ?YesSnrday morning, B McKinny. second mate of the Queen of the West, whs brought before Commissioner Morton on the complaint ot Captain Woodhouse, charging him with an attempt to create a revolt on the pa>sa?e from Liverpool to this port.

John Williams, who was the originator of the corps which bear his name, and who is one of the most accomplished military gentlwmea in the State. The " Buffalo: nians" arrived i? the ears on Thursday morning bringing with them their ordnance, horses, lie., and making, altogether a flne martial appearauoe. , These troops attract much more interes' now than formerly, owing to the brillinnt su com of this portion of our army on the Rio Grande, where the brave and gallant Ringgold l'ell in the moment of victory. The infantryhttd pitched their tents and gone into camp the evening previous, whi trier their guests were marched from thadep<-t, and where a sumptuous entertainment was in store for them; to whiuh,perliaps.it is unnecessary to say, they did ample justice. Yesterday our citizens were favored with a fine di.?pl?y of the maneuvering of this gallant company in the field.? They performed their evolutions with great precision and despatch, and astonished the spectators as they went through the different motions of charging, retreating, changing positions, Jtc, with a rapidity that was truly wonderful. It i* estimated that over ten thousand persons from the city and surrounding country were oresent to witness the performance. Ou the field 1 observed many of our beautiful belles, and scores ot our brave and gallant gentlemen, whom 1 doubt no? would willingly draw the sword to fight the batik i( ol their country. In the evening the camp ' visited by thousands of our citizens, to w llneBB the display of fireworks, and also to hsVj a view of the torch light procession of our fi 'tnen who turned out some 400 strong, under W' e oommand ot Chief Engineer Sherman, to hor or the gUest> ot the Infantry.
