She had then entered upon hef nineteenth day at sea. The longest passage of any ol the s'eHinerJ oj this lin - wus made by tho Caledonia, in Jan., 1S48, she being 20$ days in making the run. The II Derma was, last year ai mis nine, >it;Micen nnu a-half days in making the passage. The telegraph, new iron wire, is finished to Boston, and to day the flashes will come regular' y turjugh. W'e shall, therefore, probably receive the Htbcrma's news by lightning. This will bo excellent. Steam is not now last enough lor us. The Government will run a special express ovetl?e Long Island road,with the mails, if the steam* r reaches Boston before twelve o'clock to-night. 't he Clllty Movement In c ongress?WlthiliBwtng oar Troop* from Mexico. When the rumor was circulated, a few days s iice, that the distinguished Senator from South Carolina, the fion. John C. Calhoun, intended to introduce a resolution into the Senate, withdrawing our forces from the .VI -xican territory, in order to deprive the people of that country of every excuse to not enter info negotiations for peace With the United States, it created a deal ot wonderment and astonishment wherever it roach id. 1'. was considered impossible that a statesman like Mr. Calhoun, whose past career lias been so honorable to himself and so creditable to his conn try, would so far forget himself as to propose a measure that would virtually place his country in the position of an aggressor in the presen war, and make an acknowledgment before the whole civilized world, that our army was not justilled in crossing the Itio Bravo, after Mexico had not only exhausted her ingenuity in heaping upon too United States a series of insrlts and injuries, which no other country wou'd I it ve submitted to for one half the time that we did, but actually crossed the boundary between the two countries, and killed our citizens on our own soil. Tftlte circumstances that led to the war had not been generally known?if the clear, candid and indisputable manner in which the President enumerated these circumstances in his message to Congress had never been published?there might be some palliation for such a movement; but when the justice of the war, after it was commenced, and the utter inability of the United State to pri^reiit it, is acknowledged from one end of the I'niutl to the othor, it took every one by surprise when it was rumored that the distinguished son of South Carolina, whose past lile and services have conferred so much glory on his country, had introduced a resolution of this kind. The elfect of the contradiction of the rumor, when it was stated, 011 unquestionable authority, that Mr. Calhoun never entertained the slightest idea of any thing ofthe kind, can bo better imagined than represented. But it appears that a resolution of this nature has actually been handed imo the Senate by a Mr. Cilley, and if it be not considered the silliest affair that he or any other man ever undertook, we will confess ourselves igno rant of the feelings and impulses of the American people. Withdraw our forces, lorsooth ! And'.for what ' Ij it to acknowledge to Mexico that we have 110 been injured by her 1 That we have not beer kicked and spat upon by a nation whom we eoulc crash Witti one united blow ! 1 hat it is a wai of aggression, and not one of right and justice, that we are prosecuting 1 That after having com mcnced it, wc Hud ourselves unable to continui ill If Senator Cilley entertains these views, al wo en say is, that he will find biitfrw adherent: in the Uni'ed S:ates 1 And what would we gam by it 1 Would w< he an inch nearer establishing a peace 1 Hav< we not been deceived too much and too severely already by Mexican diplomacy 1 Have we no trusted so much to Mexican faith that w< And it as pliable as Punic faith 1 An< ere we to withdraw our army and navy, am trust again to their faitli, to bo again deceived To ailow them to recover their strength, raise sup plies, and concentrato their armies, to inarsha them against the United States 1 The whole movement is ridiculous. Mr. Cille; is behind the age, and has made the silliest move tnent that was ever made in Congress. No! We must carry the war into Mexico We must take Vera Crux and St. Juan de U loa. We must dictate a peaoc in the enemy1 i*pital. We have thrown clods at the trust boy too long. We must now use stones to brin him to submission ; and the man who neglect hie nnnntrif1* inf?r#?at in f^rtnorota Kir nnf cpp^nrl ing such measures, as will bring 'he Mexicans t terms, will be faithftilly remembered by the pec pie. Mark that. Immigration?Bill to Prevent the 1m fortation of paupers and criminals int thr Unitep States?Mr. Soaman has intra d iced a bill into the House of Representatives the object of which is to prevent the evils arisin; out of the course pursued by the parish authori ties in many of the European States, namely 'hat of sending their criminals and paupers ir hips to this country; thus, for a trifling sum, get ng rid, effectually, of supporting them,and throw ingupon us the responsibility and expense of pre viding poor house or prison accommodations fo he transported. The bill provides that the cor suls and commercial agents of the United State shall examine on oath or otherwise, as may bei * jrve the proposed end, all immigrants who tak passage in vessels from the ports where they ar resident, and which vessels are bound for th United States; and if it appears that such imm grants have not been paupers or convicts, the the consuls are to give certificates to that effect hut if, on the contrary, it appears that they hav been tho inmates of prisons or workhouses, th consuls are to refuse the certificates. The certil rates, when given, are lo be duplicated, and ropy sent to the authorities of the port for whic t he vessel sails. Persons arriving in ports of tli United States, without such certificates, are to b sent back whence they caine, and the master c owner of the vessel from which any immigrant i landed, without such certificate, shall be liable t a fine of $2)0. Mr. Seaman is one of the representatives c the native American party in this city, and it i not, therefore, surprising, that while his bill poi r-esses some valuable features, it at the same tim partakes of the proscriptive principle so nlainl to be seen in everything undertaken by the state men of this school of politics. It is well to propoi reform in the matter of pauper and oonvict in portation; it is well to put some check upon tl r >nd let of the parish officers across the water,wl i ave for years been engaged in shipping their uu j roductives, whom they must otherwise suj t. - rt, to this country to eat at our expense, wet r irolothea, break open oar houses, pick our pocl isor cut our throats Tooheck all this is ver well, and might be done simply by sending back a such importations by the same vessels whic bring them out. If tins course were pursued, shij masters and owners would soon tiro with tf trouble which the thing would cause them, an would of themselves put nu end to the trade, Y refusing to engage in it. But it would be worse than unwise if any couri should be pursued tending to discourage the cm gra'ion to this country, of respectable citircn* be Old World They bring with them wealth . mm w* , ? ? *' 1 I well at the sinew which conquers forests, builds | railroad*, cnnals, fort-*, ecu- >? alls and bridges. : I Look a', the present pot illation of Michigan, Jlli* . | uois, Wisconsin and Iowa ; look at whole i townships in these Staes, settled by cotnpanit s ofemigrunts from Europe. Any person familiar wi-h the principal routes of travel from our sea board to the lakes, his seen, time and again, associations i f intelligent foreigners moving to i wards the western wilds, there to establish civilization utid the arts, in the place of primeva ! forests and the dull, unprofitable monotony ofsea' sons recurring without crops. Every shin load of emigrants is a national blessing. Every willing j lo-laWor mail who comes luto the country, urged | by the spirit of enterprise which overcomes the i . natural love for home, is worths thousand dollars to us, and a dup so freighted is in tact ol more importance than the million of dollars ot specie about to b>' brought into the country by the Htberilia. Eveu under existing circumstances, if we get the off-scouring ol' Europe in small numbers, ; we get her choicest sons in large companies? the men who have learned from the history of the past, and the experience of the present, to ! admire onr institutions, and prefer them to those ' of their own reentries ; men who, with enlarged views, liberal reasoners, can, and do overcome national preferences for their own, and evince an honest regard in favor of onr political establishments. Hitch men are to be desired, and whatever their rank in life, will hardly fail to jt'ind by the country of their adoption, if it j should require their aid. That they make ! good soldiers is abundantly proven by the . declarations of the officers of our army, under j whom so many are at the present time engaged : armed in defence of our cause. The Irish and German soldiers are highly praised by our officers; ! they have their peculiar failings, but they are | tractable, and subordination is one of the first re1 quisites in the character of a good soldier. We httve 110 doubt that something will he done to alter the present state ol emigration. The poor passengers themselves are the subjects of all kinds ! of abuse from heartless passenger agents, and a I committee from the Common Council of this city I have either gone, or are about to go, to Washing ton to urge the passage of some law to control the owners, agents,or masters of emigrant vessels, in their transactions, obliging them to furnish suitable accommodations for their passengers, and thus avoid the evils to which so many now fall victims ueiore meir passage is enaeu, or soon alter landing. If we have cause to complain, the poor emigrants have double cause. Ot'R VOLUNTEERS.?WIIERK ARE THIY 1?We published, yesterday, a report sent Irom the Adjutant General's oilise in Washington, to Congress, relative to the volunteers in the service ol the United States. According to our ideas ol" arithmetic it is a most slovenly statement of figures, and it is impossible by it to tell how many volunteers are now in the field. Such a report is absurd and ridiculous. It gives in tha first place the number of volunteeis received in service, and sets the whole down at 22,950; it then makes several deductions by death, | discharge, and desertion, and concludes that > 15,182 remain in the field, making a difference of 7,46S 1 After a careful examination, it is utterly i impossible to tell where these seven thousand are; whether dead, asleep, or revelling in the t halls of the Montezuraas; although the report pretends to tell the precise number killed, woundi ed, deserted, discharged, &c., lie. In relation to the New York regiment, probably I Stevenson's, it states that 761 were first received, 1 then 135 were discharged, and 87 deserted, and i 764 remain. In relation to the first regiment I from Tennessee, it states that 1,033 were mustered into service; that 25 have been killed, 74 died, , 76 discharged, and 8 desertions, and yet only 177 remain! This is most unaccountable. With tie s Mormons, too, there were 497 mustered into s< r 1 vice ; ol these one has been discharged, and or:o s is dead, and y t 498 remain. And where are the hundreds, nay thousands who volunteered in Loui isianal 1 hey are not mentioned in any way or 3 shape. In addition to all this, five or six whole r regiments have entirely disappeared ; not a " son t of a gun" is left. s Altogether, it is a most extraordinary report, 1 and it seems that our brave volunteers appear 1 and disappear in a most mysterious manner. 1 We hope the Adjutant General will revise the ? report. ' The Desire of h.Mui.ATion in ora Officers ? , wii uik 131-in oi me join uecemuer, ult., passed y Midshipmen Fitzgerald and'Gale, two young !* officers attached to the John Adams, which vessel had taken the place of the Somers, quietly slipped in, in one of the boa's of the ship, and examined I' ; the mole and the castle. * After having pulled around under the walls ol lt the castle, without molestation, they proceeded to K the outer soa wall; while getting up this, for a * further examination, they wore hailed by one of '* : the sentries, which caused them to return to 0 their ship. Their return, however, on board the John Adams, was not so successful. On being questioned as to their visit, they replied that they had been to burn a vessel, but not finding any, 0 they had gone to sec what conld be done with the castle. This answer not satisfying the CotntnoI dore, they were suspended. ' 1 We learn that Lieutenant Parker came near 1 i meeting the same late, and it was only prevented I by the intervention of ins commanding officer. ' Frequent Jieations had been made before by j differen ers of the squadron, to burn the cruiser >r the castle, but the Commodore I always reti J his sanction, lt was while the , Commodore was at Tampico, and during the only time that he had been absent, that Lieuten' ant Parker took advantage of it and fired this |t | vessel. e Ttoors for Mexico ?The bark Carolina, ('apt. e Sherwood, soiled onFriday, having one buna dred and sixty-lour officers, non-com missions'* ed officers, and soldiers, on board, bound lor the n seat of war.

Pah* Thcatb*.?Mr. Collin* was again lecelved last night with uumistaknhle evidence of approbation end delight, by the p.trons of thi* theatre; and if it were poi' ible to enhance his reputation as an Irish comedian ol the highest order of talent, lus persoi attng the parts ot Pierco O'tlara in the "Irish Attorney," and Teddy Malowney, in "Teddy ,the Tiler," last evening, wmeml nently calculated to do it. But there I* no need < f it. Mr. #ollins has now established n reputation beyond cavilnot only here, where, on bis first appearance, ho had to undergo en ordeal of no ordinary kind, but in every other place where he has performed We have before remark i'd on Mr Collin's superior judgment in discriminating between the mode and general manner of acting genteel and low Irish characters, and the perfeot control he possesses over both His Pierce O'Hara last evening, and his Teddy Valowney, were as distinct and different in brogue, gesturo, action, Ac., es they could possibly be, and yet the Irish gentleman end the Irish tiler, were strikingly woll pel formed. Indeed, in genteel Irish comedy we consider Mr. Collins uneuuallod by any actor that ever appeared here?while in low characters he is inferior to none. His style is becoming more familiar to the public, and the more he is ?een the more he is liked. This peculiar talent and judgment distinguish Mr. Collins from ell other Mm MMHlHilM has. more than any thing els?, contributed to his extraordinary success in the United Mates He will appear on Tuesday, on the occasion of Mrs. Vernon's benefit. On that evening a youug lady of this city, possessing high intellectual attainments, as well as great personal beauty, will meka her debut in the very difficult part el Juliet, in Shakespeare's play of "Romeo and Juliet"? Report speaks in the highest terms of her accomplishments, while it pays equal tribute to her lady-liko and gruceiul appearance. We learn that she has been lor sometime under the tuition of the popular and accom pliahed Mrs Vernon, whose experience and excellent taste is equivalent to a guarantee of the young lady's abilities. Mrs. Hunt will perform the port of Romeo ? Wednesday night is set apatt for tho benefit of the attentive odiceisof the establishment. Mr. Collins will appear on that evening also. Bowxar Thsathb.?This house last evening was crowded to excess, and the performance was highly attractive. "Beauty and the Beast," "The Carnival Ball," and " The Last Days of Pompeii," were represented by the corps dramatique. In the " Carnival Ball," Miss Mary Taylor delighted the audience with the beautiful air " I am thine," in which she was rapturously applauded In " Beauty and the Beast," she also sang from the " Bohemian Girl," the popular air " I dreamt that.l dwelt in marble halls." Miss Taylor has won additional laurels since her appearance at this popular theatre. The crowded houses that nightly flocked to witness her performance, as well as of that of the entire company, during the past week, speak highly for the taste of tneir patrons of the Bowery theatre. Miss Julia Drake, and Mr. Chapman, are a great addition to the present talented stock company?and with Ncafle, Vache Clarke, and Hadaway, also Mrs. Booth, and Mrs. Sergeant, us well as the other members of the present company, the attractions here will draw crowded houses ? The ensuing week will bring forth several new noveltie. We learn with much pleasure, that Slgnora Ciocca and Signor Morra, have entirely recovered from the slight accident which occurred to them in Philadelphia. Tney are engaged at the Park Theatre, and will appear there in the tirat port of February. Mra. Maaon is to appear at the Walnut street Theatre, Philadelphia, this|week. aRocewill and Stoics'* Circus.?This establishment lest present in Cincinnati, instead of Columbua, as wa yesterday stated.

She stated tnet she had lived >at No. 9 Hoboken street, and had keen dispossessed by her landlord, and was houseless and destitute. She was taken in charge by the police and sent to the station house. The Frost?The gutters in many of the streets are frozen over, and the water that flows from the hy drants and through the channels, has run over thd streets in i consequence of the frost, and forms lsrge sheets of Ice, to the danger of both the horses and foot passengers. Yesterday, Lewis street wni in a bad condition in the vicinity of Stanton, and a milkman had his horse's neck and cart nearly broken in trying to pass that way.

At the extreme ends aie tour coupled pilasters. There will be three doors of entrance, ornamented with architraves and cornicea?above each door there will bo niches surrounded with impost mouldiugs; the centre one is intended to receive a collossal statue of Christ, and the Biches over each of the aide doors are intended to enshrine statues of St. .Peter and St. Paul ? the patrons under whose invocations the church is dedicated.

The annexed we extract from the National, which comes down upon the managers of the bank pretty severely: ? " We. a few days ago, mentioned the great project* of the Bank, and we had hoped not to have bad ooca* sion to return to the subject. Yesterday, however, the directors, continuing under the influence cf the same panic, entertained the question of raising the rate of discount A few davs since, thev debated as in whether thev should not limit their discounts to bills having thirty days to run, instead of three months at at present. Plans abandoned and resumed, fatal agitation, which, (joining from the Bank itself, throw difficulties in the way of business, and lessons credit?this privileged establishment, whose principal duty is to create security, produces fear, uncertainty and dlst'Ust. She ought to have foreseen, more than three months ego, the elf ?ct to be produced in Paris by all the causes which she was acquainted with in common with every one else. Is the shortness of crops a new fact ? Was it not known that a certain quantity of specie would he applied to the purchase of wheat and other grain 1 Was it not known what a weight the railroad shares would be on the market 7 As for us. we called attention, over snd over again to these subjects. All other circumstances, which st present exercise their inAuence on credit, were as well known then as now. The bank ought to have taken measures, and been prepared tor all contingenciea, for she is in possession of all means, and is richer than necessary. If she bad been sufficiently foreseeing to render her capital available, she would not now experience any inconvenience. Wiiat does she do now 7 Frightened at the increasing diminution of bullion in her cellars, she wishes to limit her transactions and reduco the amount ill hand of discounted paper 8ha ought to prevent, but she creates a crisis. Whence arises this panic under which she labors 1? Have apocu'atiens been carried to excess ? Is production beyond measure 7 Have ..e had here the countershuck of those great crises wi'h which the trade of other countries is sometimes visited 7 Have we seen in France the imprudence of production create those perturbations which shalte the strongest houses and overturn the rotten 7 Nothing of the kind The quantity ot specie in the hands of the bank is reducad, it does not exceed 8*,Oun 000 of francs. The quantity has nsver baen so low; and us the decrease go<-s on the bsnk gets frightened, and threatens to make the trading public victims of a state of thinga whioh has nean caused solely by her imprudence. and which is dsily increased by her indecision. She has been more tfisn a week negotiating a loan ol AO 000,000 francs from the Bank of Kngland, and nothing is done. If there is so much fear it is time to come to a decision. Nothing is so latal to credit as these fluctuations ef fear, end, instead of comiug qu.okiy to a conclusion, they thufllo, they disenss upon gold or upon silver; the bank does not see that the most important and urgent thing is to quiet tbe mind of the public aud her own. They do not see that when the bauk lies 611,000 000 more in her cellars she will have nc occasion to touch them, and that tbe will soon see her stock of specie doubled. It it by acting with timidity that a great establishment ii to hu conduce If Is it expected that little means and digging little gutters will bring money back to the only reservoir oi credit? Is this the way in which the directors understaud the importance of an exclusive privilege, and the obligations it imposes ? Many causes have been mentioned as seccouuting for the disappearance of specie ; the amount required for the purchase of wheat has been greatly exaggerated, but it has not been arid that ior several months French money hat b?en going to Bavaria, Prue' sia and Austria, to be employed in support of the projects of our enemies. Nothing is said about the loan of 80 000,000 of florins, contracted at Vienna with the bouse of Rothschild ; nothing has been said of the specie taken from the bank by M d'Eicbthal for a snvllar purpose. No notice has been takeu of our live franc places con verted into bars, to supply the wants of Ueruaay, which was exhausted Our oouflding and blind coaatry looks with ii difference on the warning given by the press in days of quiet; and like the swallow in the fable, only believes in danger when it is come. We have frequently dwelt on the danger attendant on tbe suppression of the mints, and concentrating tbe coinage in tho hands ?f M de Rothschild. No attention was paid to us. What haa been tbe consequence ? The trade in gold and silver bullion kaa become in this house, already so powerful, a formidable monopoly. What has further happened I The price of silver, wuicti is on an average at tif., rose to 81., and is new at lOf. 60?. It would seem as if the government, ministers, and even tho chambers, had coalesced, to increase tke strength and the riches oi this king of metal. Hia are the loam, railroads, wheat contracts, tbe monopoly of the miuts! And he, gratefully, haa,uo doubt, f hastened to say to the bank, "Vou want 00 millions,here , they are No, the concerns of the hank are not bis, let her get through aa she may. M de Rothschild is Eng lisli. Austrian, Prussian, Dutch, French, according aa profit is lo be made. He is in thn right, and we should nave nothing to say against it if all the coinage of money had not beau concentrated in his house, unit tbe power of so strongly acting on the trade in goid and silver but lion had not been given it. This is no longer a private matter, but a public one, aud it is natural that when we , are considering tbe einhanasiments of the hank, and the 1 general state of the place, wa should call uttention to those hankers who have, in *o great a measure, cuntrib2 uted to create the existing difficulties We have, however, while pointing out the cause of the exportation of 3 specie, avoided calling on the patriotism of tha dealers in money. They would have laughed at us? money-bags own no country."
