It closed its career yesterday. Our readers w'1 And in '# appropriate place, a telegraphic report of the pr meed! 'gsthe latest mom'-nt. We are iuc'mud to believe, from the indus ry exhibited t>y the ruembt rs, and the great amount of ousiness 'hey transected during the last f.v d. ys, that 'hey endeavored to remove, in som ' (i.-vrc--, the dicgT ce attached to 'hem in co iseqoenc of their pun.ile conduct during the whole of 'he preceding portion of the session. If they h ive succeeded in doing so, they have done more than we think they have. The people, however, are the judges. They certainly labored hard in these two days, ami accomplished probably more good than they did during the previous time, out w? are not disposed to vive them any credit for it. They might as well have taken a vote on the Wilmot proviso two months ago, as on the last day but one of the session, and saved the country from the dishonor they have caused to her. They cannot avoid the responsibility they willingly incurred. We refer ou? readers to the full reports oi Thursday's proceedings, in another part of this paper. MPORTANT WAR INTELLIGENCE. Mm qhu miliary AiiacK on vera iruz ana San Jnan d'llloa. We have the pleasure of presenting to our readers this morning, some important information connected with the contemplated attack on the city ot Vera Cruz and the castle of San Juan d'UUoa Ly the United States army and navy. This information has been in our possession for b 'veral days past; but inasmuch as its publication before to-day would have had a tendency to embarrass the government, or perhaps frustrate to ?. certain extent their plan of operations, we withheld it from the public until a certain contingency should have occurred that would'enable us to divulge it without prejudice to the public interests. That contingency has occurred, and the sailing ol' the United States l>ne of battle ship Ohio, and the sloop of war Decatur, l'rom Norfolk, on the 1st instant, will make the intelligence clear to our readers. It will ho recollected by our readers that the plan of operations of the army and navy were first published in this journal. It may be necessary to recapitulate them here, so that the history of the matter will be complete. Gen. Scott takes command of the army, and will rendezvous at the Island of Lobos. Thither the whole of the army, with the exception of that portion left under the command of Gen. Taylor, for the purpose of garrisoning Saltillo, Monterey, Camargo, &c., &.C., which will he held by him, will be transported from Tampico by the several vessels, nearly one hundred in number, which the government has chartered here and in other cities for the mtrnose. That island affords an excellent harbor, and is only eight miles distant from the main shore, and from its abundance of wa'er, &c., is admirably adapted for a rendezvous. From this island the troops will be conveyed to the shore, and ;t is for this duty that the great number oi launches were ordered by the government. From the point ol landing, Gen. Scott will march immediately to the city of Vera Cruz, and by a preconcerted arrangement between him and Commodore Perry, the city cf Vera Cruz and the Castle ol San Juan de Ulloa will be simultaneously attacked by the army and navy. Thus much we published on a former occasion. Tne details of the great programme have been studiously conceal d by Gen. Scott and the odminis' m'ton, as w- II as by all v. ho weto acquainted W'th them. Our army officers received orders 'ro.n day to day, but their purport was never Jivug d. The line of battle ship Ohio underwent repairsrecen 'y, with the view, ostensibly, ofproceeding to the Pacific, and joining the blockading squadron on that side of M-xico, and sailed with scaled outers from Hampton roads on the 1st instant. These orders are not to be opened untd sri? g ts into a certain latitude; but we will take the liberty of making our readers acquainted with their contents probably before Capt. Stringham himself will know them. This vessel has sailed ostensibly for the Pacific; but before she will have reached there, she will have taken part in the grand demonstration about to be made on the enemy's strongholds. She sailed in company with the rloop-ot-war Decatur, but she will not go in sight of Vera Cruz until the morning of the day when General Scott will attack that city. The appearance of a vessel of her size and armament would reasonably induce the Mexicans to suppose that an attack was contemplated immediately, and it is to prevent this suspicion that she will remain out oi sight until the eventful time shall have arrived.? Tne Decatur will act as an agent to convey from the squadron there to her, and inform her of th< proper time to take her place. Between Genera Scott and Commodore Perry, who will relieve Commodore Conner, signals have been arranger ihnt will enable Com. Conner toknow the precise day or hour that he will commence the attack on the city. Commodore Perry will immediately communicate, by means of the Decatur, or one ol the small steamers, to the Oluo, the commander of which will govern himself accordingly. The moment that General Scott commences to attack the city, the whole fleet will play on the castle, for the purpose of preventing the garrison from a'tirig in concert with the Mexicans in Vera Cruz. In this manner it is supposed that both tiiC city and the castle will be taken in a short time. The time appointed for this demonstration is the 20th of this month, if Gen. Scott be ready by that time; if not, as soon after as possible. At all events, the Ohio and Decatur, which sailed on t lie first, and the Mississippi, which will sail in a day or two, with Commodore Perry, arc directed to be in that neighborhood by that time. The object of secrecy has been to put Santa. Anna off hi< guard, arid prevent him from co-operating with the troops in Vera Cm/. He must remain where he is, for fear that Gen. Taylor might advance towards San Luis. 'I he Castle of San Juan d'Ulloa will be lor a time occupied by our troops after its capture, lor the purpose of testing the effect of the climate or them. If it prove unhealthy, it will probably h? iivzed to iho water, so tha' the enemy will not b< able to avail himself of it hereafter. This oughl to be done, it the Mexican! refuse to treat foi peace alter its capture. If the attack be made on the 20th, an express will, we understand, be immediately sent to Washington, or to the nearest point to that city, and the news wi'l reach us about the first ol April. In the meantime, however, it is not improbable that a grand battle will be lought between the troops under Ssnta Anna and those under General Taylor. Two great battles at the same time would be a serious blow to Mexico. The above particulars may be relied upon for accuracy. It will be seen, therefore, that we may very soon expect to hear important news ! from the seat of war. The Funeral Procession to Kicert tlse He. mains of Captains Morris. Williams and Fields. The ship Auburn has arrived from New Orleans, having on board the remains of the gallunt officers who?e names appear above, and who fell at the battle of Monterey.

These brave men, who were called at an early day, to offer up their lives in their country'8 cause, were highly esteemed, not only in their profession, but in private life. Captain Williams, who belonged to the corps of Topographical En* gineers, was better known to the public than the others. He was a man whose place it will be 1 difficult to fill; his amiability was such as to cha1 racterire him wherever he was known ; his love ' ol the fine arts led him to devote much of his lei' sure time to drawing and coloring, in which he ! j was eminently successful, and his pursuit of let ters nau siorra ins mum wan a iuna 01 useim ami 1 agreeable information, which, though modestly 1 introduced (for he was never pretending) always ! had the effect to enchain the attention of those who listened to him. Of his bravery, Monterey, the time when he received bis death wound, the military despatches and the journals throughout 1 ihecountry, have already spoken. He was a Virginian, of a good family; nut this was never allud: e<i to I y himself with anyrhii<g like an air ol vanij ty. Cept. Williams w*s beloved for bis own sake, j Captain ' "ieids is highly spokeaof by his brother ! officers, and ail who knew liim. He, too, was kind hearted and engaging in his manners, and i had drawn towards himself the esteem of a long I list of friends. The families of both these officers reside at Buffalo, whither the remains of the i fallen are to be taken for burial. Of Captain i Morris we have not heard so much said; he is, ! however, highly spoken of by his fellow citizens . of Albany, who deplore his los?, and have taken every pains to rescue his remains from the field i of his death. No one will be found to deny, with truthfulness, that each one of this trio won for himself, before death, the laurels due to bravery. It is to be hoped that as many citizens as can spare the time, will joiu the funeral procession; show themselves, in this way, sympathizers with j the relatives, who have thus lost such estimable ; friends, no less than for the purpose of showing, at this small expense, a sympathy with our pa triotic fellow citizens who are still periling theii ' lives in the country whence these relics have just | come. > Sebioijs Accidents on the Eastern Railroads 1 ?Three accidents occurred on the Worcestei road, in about half an hour, on Wednesday after I noon. Two persons were killed, two dreadfullj > injured, and several others, including one or twe > ladies, slightly injured. A laborer, named Flint , and a braketnan, were the two killed. Anothei I brakenian, named Kennedy, had both legs bro ken, and a man named Pa#6 was so seriously in jured that he is not expected to live. Two 01 three locomotives, and a great many cars, wcrt smashed, and the probability is, that the damage sustained will amount to between #30,000 anc 900)000. About the time these accidents occur red, one happened on the Western road, nea Worcester. One man was injured, and the can considerably damaged.

Intklliqknck from Porto Rico.?The baik Condor, Captain Tikiob, which arrived last night, brought us an interesting commercial letter from our correspondent at Mayaguez. It is not, however, as late, by a few days, as accounts previously published; but it contains a few facts relative to the sugar crop on that island which are important to many of our mercantile houses. j Mtviiiuti, P. R, Fab 11, 1S47. Accompanying this, I send you a full list of shipping ! left in this port by the Condor. The sugar crop is in full operation, and all the planters are doing their utmost ! We are making but about 300 hhds per day, which is far short of the requirements Prime grades are taken j readily at 6 to 6%' for United states, and 4 to s>? is readily paid for an iofaiior quality for England, for which there is s heavy demand. Yet the ordars from France, which have heretofore assisted us very mueh in disposing of this quality, are limited to 3>? a 3)f; consequently at this moment cannot be acted upon. Much a state or things cannot maintain itselt long, and prices for Europe mast approximate more, later in the season. Molasses, from ' the great influx of vessels, is getting absolutely mad. $18 per 110 gs has been paid to-day ,cask $i, lighterage$l, I and uhmit <1 other exnensea. This rate far exceeds anv thing that your market advicea warrant, and with sugars must eventually recede Coffee in good demand at 7^c, , and heavy cargoes rapidly going forward, all to Europe, i The introduction of American produce haa been unusually heavy during the laat three inontha, and you will see by note annexed, that proapecta lor pitch pine, atavea, llour and codfiih, for the next thirty to aixty days, | muat continue bad. When you aend papera to other porta in the Ialand, . plcaae put them all in one package; it makea much dif- ; ference to the overland poatage.

Thtatrltialai Park Theatre.?Another very large and fashionable audience attended the Park last evening, to witneaa the little Viennoiae children in three of their grand divertisementa. Every individual of the vast assemblage was j pleased and delighted. They will perform again this evening, which is the laat but one of thair engagement The house will, ol course, be filled. The petite comedy a " Nabob for an Hour," wbich was capitally played laat evening by all concerned in it, will be repeated, as well as the drama of " 1 wo Friends," for the second time. Bowkbt Thiatre.?"Ethan Allen" is still the rsge hare, and draws immense houses since its first introduc' tion. Clerk, Hadaway, Vache, Neafie, Chapman, Mnj Sergeant and Mrs. Booth, together with the entire cast'

improve as they proceed. There waa again a "jam' house laat evening, and the whole performance passed off in a highly creditable manner. An additional feature ol attraction haa been added, by the engagement of the celebrated Thos D. Rice, hotter known aa the popular and veritable Jim Crow, whose acknowledged talents aa an able delineator of negro character,have gained him so high a reputation. As Ginger Blue, iu the comedy of the "Mummy," Rico cannot be surpassed; and this evening be will perform "Jumbo Jum," the principal part in this celebrated comedy. Wo would remind the friends of this truly popular delineator of negro character, that his benefit is fixed for to-morrow (Saturday) evening. The liberality of the enterprising and popu lar manager, Mr. Jackson, in catering for the numerou* I patrons and friends of Old Bowery, cannot be too highly appreciated, and we take pleasure to announce that 1 the popular and distinguished danseuse, Mile Dimier, | from the Opera|House, Paris, has been engaged here, and will make her first appearance on Monday evening next. Her engagement will add another laurel to the high reputation of Old Bowery. Greenwich Theathe.?The extraordinary dancing of two iavorite artistes, has drawn good houses since the opening of this popular theatre, and each appearance has met with the most enthusiastic plaudits from the entire house. The introduction of such accomplished opera dancers as Signora Ciocca and Signor Morra, has been attended with entire success, and their " Grand Pas de Deux," " La Polka," and other performances last evening, drew forth repeated applause. Their style of dancing surpasses any thing of the kind we have seen for some time?and nothing like it is at present to be seen on the boards oi any of our public theatres. " Charles the Second," together with other popular pieces,was presented, and the immense attractions of the evening were received with unbounded applause. The Italian dancers will again appear this evening. The Bowery Circus maintains its ascendancy among the places of fashionable amusement, and the house is crowded nightly with all the beauty, gaiety, fashion and' respectability of the metropolis. Strangers from all parts of the Union make this place their evening resortThe Amphitheatre, from its spacious accommodations, and admirably disposed interior, is thoroughly ventilated throughout, which is au important consideration in places of public amusement. The entertainments, which are varied and beautiful, are generally over about ten o'clock, so that those who would indulge their little ones by bringing thorn to see the performances of the horses, and the elegant gymnastics of the arena, may do so without inconvenience, or risk of taking cold. This evening Mr. llobbs will ride his great act oi horsemanship, turning a succession of somersets on his horse's back while in rapid motion. Gossin is the clown. Mr. Geo. Sergeant, Mr. Madigan, and Mrs. Aymar will also appear in their several acts of horsemanship. Here Alexander.?This great wizard will go to Havana in the U. 8. steamer Scourge, it is rumored that his destination is Vera Cruz, where he will assist Com. Conner in reducing San Juan d'Ulloa ; but he does not wish it made public. John Sefton is drawing crowded houses at WashingtonMr. Forrest is playing a round of characters lrom Shakspenre, at the Savannah theatre. Miss Julia Turnbull is the star of attraction at the Odeon, Albany. Winchell, the celebrated drolleriat, is giving exhibitions at Bleecker Hall, Albany. A number of the friends of the drama at New Orleans, kave tendered Mr Murdoch a complimentary dinner. The performances at the Orleans theatre, on the night ol the 10th ult, were tor the benefit of the suffering Irish. nusleah Italian Orr.r a ?" I Lombardl" was again presented to a well filled house and fashionable audience, last even 'ng. The spectacle is well worth an attendance, if there were no music. The starlight scene, at the openmR, gain* tho admiration of all who behold it, and the several tahleaua, which are formed at different periods of the op?ia. are presented with an efTect rarely ai-complikhe i in scenic representations. The chorus.* are decidedly pr, f.rable to those in any ol the operas before brought out by the present company. There is considerable acting necessary to a proper performance of '* I Lombardi." and this part of the piece is creditably ac cumplished by Beneventano, Benedetti, Sanquiiico and Paiti. Of the music, it would ce.lamly be unjust to say it is not pleasing; sod yet it certainly does require the accompaniment of tho "stage business." and yet there are some pretty aiis and a duo or two which, with geod execution, are well worth listening to. The most popular piece in the opera, however, is the trio between Pagano, (Beneventano.) Oionte, (Beoedatti.) and Gisehia, (Signs. Barili.) This is truly a beautiful piece and full Justice is done to it by the tbreo performers named Beneventano has a better opportunity lor display of talent in the part allotted to him, than any of the others. Heavy drafts are made upon the orchestra and are promptly met; the instrumental part ot the opera is exceedingly heavy. Taken all in all, " The Lombards" ia attractive, and will, without doubt, have a good run; it will be re peated to night. Aid to Scoti.akd?A grand musical entertainment will be given at the Tabernacle on Monday evening next, for this truly laudable object. The committee appointed to make arrangements, announce the kind, liberal, gratuitous services of several amateur and professional ladies and gentlemen, including that sweet band of vocalists, tho Alleghanisns, and Professor Whitney, the celebrated lecturer on oratory. Another feature of novelty, Mr. M'Kerrachar, piper to the New York Scottish Guard, will play several celebrated Highland ai's, and elan nibrochs. Scotland, the IsdJ of Burns and Sir Walter Scott, from whose pens many rich gems of literature have come to us, and now udorn our libraries, will surely meet with that benevolent response which has already characterised a sympathising and charitable American community. We hope to see the Tabernacle crowded. Christt's Mimstrcls.?This popular band of Ethiopian vocalists, musicians, and burlesque Cachucha dan| cers, will perform at the Brooklyn Institute, corner ot Washington and Concord streets, this evening. Their performances being unique and original, are received nightly with great approbation ; they announce the introduction of many new songe, glees and choruies.

Yesterday (Wednesday) a Jew by the name of Meyer LleckensrifT, keeping a small clothing shop at No. 04 Orange street, was applied to by two country looking young men, to fiurcha<e a lot of dry goods, which they would sell cheap or cash, staling that they were from Charleston, Snuth Carolina Upon these statements, Liechensrifl accom panied them to a house located at No 1 Hague street, kept by Mrs Mariner, on the corner of Pearl street, and there exhibited two trunks full of dry goods, which they stated they would sell for $'130.

This is the largest sum received on any ona d iy since the revenue system has been established. The annexed extract is from a letter received ia this city from a gentleman in Illinois, connected with one of the departments of the government of that State, whose position enables him to fortn a pretty correct opinion of the condition of the public finances. It gives rather a gloomy account of the resources of the State Chicago, Keb 1, 1947. dka* Si* : ? * * As to the contemplated rise in the value of Illinois indebtedness, it is all illusory. The s'ock jobbers may, for speculation, run it up lor a few days, but it will amount to nothing. I know very well upon what your impressions are based, but 1 know equally well, that nothing can be done by the Statu at prose nt to place her creditors upon a tooting that will render their debts really more valuable. No one now kDows how much we owe. The present legislature will, 1 think, puss a bill providing tor the funding of all our debt, at. least tho Governor bus a project of this kind in his mind?but the (Jo veruor is no great financier, end the people are unable to pay, and Illinois creditors will long be obliged to chew the bitter cud of disappointment. It is indeed humiliating thus to speak of my own State, but when the entiro debt of over $8,(100,000 internal improvement, has been absolutely thrown away, and when you are acquainted with the additional fact that State has nothing with which to pay this debt, augmented by six years interest alroady, excepting about 160,000 acres of land, which if all sold would not much more than pay two years interest, mm wnen you also take into consideration that wo hare all our rouiia, bridges, schools, and other improvements to make, our government to support, atnl na available means but a direct taxation which is tue most odious to the poople of all taxes, you will, 1 think, conclude with me mat our debt can never be liquidated, but by a compromise, and that compromise will not ho as Rood aft 40 cents on the dollar, at 0 per cent iuterest. If 1 am right, then it is hut to keep as clear as possible of our indebtedness. If your hopes should prove well founded, you may do well by purchasing. At present the canal indebtedness is not in so great demand as the internal improvement, but it is really much more valuable, and the registered bond and scrip will all be ultimately paid, aud probably the entire caual debt, which will amount to between six aud seven millions These are my views ol the matter?1 have some opportunities of judging. Others, because they are 1 more sanguine than 1 am, think the whole debt will be paid?but the wish with them is father to the thought; but while iny wishes are equally ardent, my hopes are not a* bright. We give the above for what it is worth, for the benefit of tboso interested In the bonds of that State. We do not agree with thejw:iter in every particular, but must admit that hit conclusions are not far out the way.
