At (he second board, there was a slight re-action in the market, and prices fell off a fraction. Harlem declined % \ Norwich und Worcester % ; Morris Canal X ; Reading X I-nng Island X Canton 1.

It ii seldom that an isolated effort to coll public attanion to the existence of great evils is at all successful, n a great city, a cry of Are is generally unheeded, ex;ept by those immediately interested. Owners of pro>erty, to be sure, often enquire anxiously as to the direcion of the alarm, ai d are seldom satisfied without asceraining that their houses are not in danger. By such, an i ilsrm is soldona unheeded. j In the Unitsd Htates, eveiy citizen has an Interest in \ he framing',of the laws by which he is governed, and by j .he operation of which ought to be secured to him j afety in property and person. But too many are content t to take every thing as they get it, regardless, provided I it press not on themselves, ol the mode in which their Interests are cared for, and entirely unburthened with concern for the common weal, until some sudden and frightful calamity, in their immediate neighborhood, hreatening to involve themselves in ruin, rouse them from their fancied security. It has besides been so very hacknied a way of gelling ip an excitement, to declaim against corruption, and nisgovernment?to predict the dismemberment of the ' Jnion to prognosticate the advent of great eocial and >olitical catastrophes, anJ the charlatonry of attempting o repair social evils, by extraordinary, convulsive, and udden expedients, is so vulgar that any warning cry ! aned, is immediately set down as a false alarm. Jt is therefore with but small hope of successfully atracting public attention to the evils I deplore, (by sueessfully. I mean with any chance of practical amelioraion ) that I declare it to he my settled conviction, resul- 1 ing from no slight intimacy with the machinery of the 1 overnment, that the national I.egislatum is perverted 1 rom the wise purposes for which it was intended in the 1 >eginninp, as the pure fount of healthful legislation, i hoi ono ntw in ten is peneciea wunoui tne pressure of 1 MM petty influence?MM party MtMHHN selfish 1 I esigo?some private pique or jealousy?some grasping < t popularity) but why,enumerate the many tin worthy inueucoa?the sordid motives-the factious springs or an <([iii;ntn tlm jealous heartburning* of wounded sell- j teem-the ingredient* of that seething bubbling caul- j ron.

The immediate forces ol tho main army under Generals Taylor and Scott occupy a circuituoua 3ass lino from Saltillo to Monterey to Gemargo, thence down to Matamores, thence down the Gulf to Tsmpioo, >r a circuit of occupation of about 900 miles. Santa Anna s stationed at San Luis, 1ft* miles from Tampico, within his line of ciroumvaliatii n, the other detachments of our irmy inland and to the northward, being twice that (Usance from the Mexican General-in-Chief. The whole [orce under the main United States army does not axceed 14 ooo men, and deducting the necessary garrisons st Tsmpico, Matamoras, Camargo, Monterey, and Saltillo, the actual force which Scott and Taylor may be able to concentrate upon San Luis, before tha first or April, will not exceed 16,000 men. The conclusion is apparent. By the first of April the vomito rages along tha Gulf, by the first of June, the rams descend and tha flooda oome lathe interior, and of course the campaign will ba suspended. Gan. Scott cannot concentrate upon Sea Luis, without further supplies of men and munitions. He cannot gat them now in season, and the anticipated battle at Baa Lais, will, probably, be postponed till about the flret ef next November. But Hit be the purpose of Scott end Taylor to marrli upon San Luis, which may be readily deue in twenty-five days, we may be anticipated in our calculations by the report of the defeat of Santa Anna and tha capitulation of San Luis before the adjeurnment of Congress. The opinion prevailing here, bowevsr, stems to " ui?i "?? w?i miBpauueu, io lar as active operations are concerned, unleai the nine regiments of volanteera juit raised, are landed at Tampico before the first of March, which will just enable than to penetrate to San Luis before the malaria spreads its pestilent wings, and their deadly shadow along the seaboard. This will give a re inforcement to the main army of operations of, say 10,000 men, which will increase the whole active force to 26,000, sufficient for 76,000 Mexicans in therartificationa of San Luis, however strong they may be i'or the sake of closing this branch of the argument, let us suppose that before the present seasen is closed San Luta will be surrounded, and bombarded, and stormed, and taken, and that the defeated Mexican army files off by capitulation or retreat toward Mexico. This will end all superior military operations to the North, and the next point of operations will be Mexico itself. And here we begin with the exposition in the ou'line of our programme, and the vindication of the President of the united States. Taylor is tired, and at loggerheads with the War Department ; Scott is perhaps still apprehensive of a " fire in the rear"?" Old Bullion" has been deprived, by the defeat of tho projit of the Lieutenant General, from making the " lofty summits of the Cordilleras his n onumeut and his grave."

It originated in tha rear building attacbad to the leather store of W. W. Keen k Co , the fourth stery of which was occupied by Hopper, Boss k Co., manufacturers of the patent self-feeding pencil cases. The manufacturing portion of Messrs Keen's establishment fronted on Strawberry street, end the whole was completely gutted by the ravages of the flames. The Chesnut street front and ethor portions of thst building fell, crashing the adoining store of Mrs. Lacock. Her stock of fancy goods was ell destroyed, but she had an insuranca of V3000, which will probably cover it. Keen Ik Co.'s buildings were fully covered by insurance, and they ilso had (12 00) of their stock covered The loss of Hopper, boss V Co is (3000, upon which they had no insm ranee.
