T\ NEW YORK HERALD. "** * "* 1'h"ri*>y' M*r *? U*TKtwi from rope. We limy expect to receive the news by the Caledonia sometime to-day. She is now in her sixteenth day, and therefore over due. The Boston wires a e in fine working order. \Vkl| Candidate* for the Presidency, and Vlee Presidency?Sir. Webster's Southern Tour. Our readers are aware that the Hon. Daniel Webster, the "Expounder of the Constitution," as his friends delight in styling him, is now On a tour through the southern portion of the United States. We understand from his speech, delivered at a dinner tendered to him by his .friends in Richmond, that thi* is the first time he has been south of .lames River. The hospitality and marked respect shown to him thns fur, and which will unquestionably be continued, must be extremely flattering to him, as it is gratifying to the people of his native .Stale and of the whole North. The theme ofMr. AVebster's public discourse was the constitution, which he lias so elaborately studied, and which lie so ably expounds. Every where he goes lie speaks of that sacred instrument as the most precious gift ever conferred on a |>eople?a gift that we should be grateful for, and one diat we should preserve and cherish in all its beauty, as our most valuable possession. Occasionally, here and there, he brings in an allusion to the future, that will be worth the recollection thereof. We must unite, he says, in supporting that grand fabric of the nation, and do nothing that would have the remotest tendency to impair it. These have been the sentiments, with a few variations, of that distinguished man on the constitution, delivered time and again in the North. They are now repeated in the South among his southern fellow-citizens, who never saw him before, and who before this visit, have known him only through the newspapers. They?must be truly agreeable to our southern brethren, and carry with them the conviction, that, however much the fanatical portion of 'he peonle of the North are willing to hazard that instrument, the statesmen of the North will ever defend it, and preserve it intact nu pure ; and, perchance, in 1848, by its aid, elect Old Rough and Ready President of these United States. According to Mr. Webster, he has made the constitution his study for tiie last thirty years. He looks upon it, to use his own words, as the embodiment of >he great principles of human liberty, founded in Providential arrangement. " Let us take it," says lie, " as an inheritance come down to us as the greatest achievement of our ancestors." What better evidence can our southern brethren have of the respect which the North cherishes for that instrument than the sentiments which Mr. Webster is now expressing in their midst 1 Have they not a guaranty that the North, while they cherish the constitution, will not grant the compromises, the sacrifices, the considerations, that were weighed and settled in the era of its formation?not the least of which was the question of slavery! What need they care for the inflammatory doctrines that emanate from the excited brains of northern fanatics, when their rights as ' a constituent portion of our greet republic are guarantied to them by the sacred instrument which our "northern statesmen so profoundly respect and admire 1 We anticipate many curious results from Mr. Webster's visit to the South. It will draw close the bond that unites the South with the North. and, perhaps, secure a southern President, and a northern Vice President, for 1848. It will prove that our statesmen look upon the .South as part and parcel of their common country, as members of the same family, as conservators of the constitution, and copartakers of the benefits it confers upon all. The giant intellect of a statesman like Mr. Webster, can in a moment dispel the prejudices and ill feelings that northem fanatics have labored for years to form. His colossal mind can sweep them before it, as the hurricane sweeps the chaff of the field ; but will all this produce the result to which the leaders of the great whig party are now looking forward 1 We shall see. This tour of Mr. Webster will not be without its importance and interest in one point of view?one that somewhat agitates the public mind at this time. It may not surprise the leaders of the whig party, or a few of them, if it should result in the selection of Major Generai. Zackary Taylor, of the Regular Army, for the Presidency, and of the Hon. Daniel Webster, of the United States Senate, for the Vice Presi aency. Such may be the upshot of the tour of Mr. Webster, and of the victories of Palo Alto, Resaca de la Palma, and Buena Vista. Stranger events have occurred. Wool,.?We publish in another column, an advertisement, that a subscription has been opened at the office of H. C. Adams, Esq., for the pur pose ofestablishing a large sheep-fold, upon an estate of one hundred thousand acres in Western Virginia. We commend this project. The rich and mounrainous land, and temperate climate of Western Virginia, are highly favorable to the rearing of sheep; and capitalists, who seek a sure and profitable employment of their funds, will with difficulty find a means of investment more conformable to their wishes. The fertile soil of this part of Virginia, and its subterranean riches, need only the application of intelligent industry, to furnish their proportion towards the prosperity and the resources of the State; and we should, therefore, be pleased to see the capital, and the activity of our men of enterterprize and ot enlarged views, directed towards that favored tract of country, so long unknown and neglected. The calculations upon which the brilliant anticipations announced in the advertisement are based, appear to rest upon well authenticated facts; and we cannot doubt the realization of the results which have been deduced from them, should the management of the enterprize be con tided to practical and experienced persons. The population of the United State*, increasing day by day with wonderful rapidity, aseures to the products of the sheep-fold an important outlet at home, independently of the foreign demand, if a glut of the American market should he apprehended. Every form of industry, which is certain of a sale for its productions, may count upon sure profits. Above all, in the present instance, in which the wool,7 the product of the told, is beyond all caprices of fashion and all the rhances of new inventions. Wool has been, is, and ever will he the primary material indispensable to the clothing of man as wheat is to his subsistence. The character of the enterprise is one that must attract attention. Arrival at New Orleans.?The new steamer Yacht, J. R. Crane, master, arrived at New Orleans on the 27th ult., in seven days from New York, via Charleston. Politic*! Intelligence; Visoisia Electio*.?It Is thought that Thompson, democrat, la elected In tbo 14th Congressional district. Tho 13th Is In doubt; tha chance*, however, are In favor of Fulton, whig. It I* probable that the Legislature wll' be divided?one house whig, and the other, the Senate democratic. The Lkekse Electio* is New Yo**.?According to the Jlrgut IPS towns have voted for license, and S3 no ecas*. giving license a majority In 115 towns. _THjt_CAfTU?K_or Alvajlado and t&e Rxward ^?TSSr=raT. tfunter, with his " Scourge" and one gun, took Alvarado and Flacotalpam without loas of life. Commodore Perry expected to take it by twelve ships of war, one hundred I and fifty guns, and three thousand sailors and soldiers, after a large lose of life. The ConunodoM* was astonished at finding on his arrival that Lieut.Hunter was in command of Alvarado. Lieut, llunter has been tried by a court martiul tn the fleet, and has been dismissed the squadron after a reprimand. The people of this interesting republic had already tried Lieut, llunter, und had decided that an " order to blockade " did not supersede the right to capture every enemy within reach, and that the capture of Alvarado was an act to be admired. Among the disinterested gentlemen of the nuvy the verdict is thought to be foolish; for they,with our citizens, admire grand results from small means. There are several important circumstances connected with the capture of Alvarado, which Dave not yet been made public. They will place Lieut, llunter in a higher position than he now apparently occupies. The committee of citizens who are preparing a sword tor Hunter are extremely zealous. Theatrical. Pabx Theatre.?Mr. Forrest appeared last night In thu character of Aylmere, in the tragedy of "Jack Cade." The performance was well received. This piece, from the historical incidents upon which It is built, cannot but excite a lively Interest. The subordinate parts were well sustained, and received the commendation of the audience. The bill for the evening concluded with the comedy of " Three Weeks After .Marriage," in which Messrs. O. Barret and Bass and Mrs. Hunt and Mrs. Vernon were cast. This evening. Mr. Forrest will appear in the character of Damon, lu the play of " Damon and Pythias," a character in which he has greatly distinguished himself. Bowr.it Theatre.?The admirers of Mrs. Shaw, whose name is legion, will have an opportunity of seeing her this evening in the part of the Countess in the play of "Love," and as this is positively the last night but one of her engagement, we should suppose that the house will be as full as it was on any night for the last two weeks. Mrs. Shaw's personation of this great character, is a treat not seldom offered to the public, and when it is. is eagerly enjoyed. The drama entitled the "Mysteries of Paris or the Prince and the Htabber." will be added. Tho patriotic exertions of the manager to lay before the public, and illustrate in a striking manner the principal incidents of American history, have been fur some time past directed, in I preparing a striking illustration of the battle of Bueua Vista and tho bombardment of Vera Crux, which will be produced on Friday evening next. We are informed by those who have an opportunity of knowing, that it will be a faithful representation of these grand events. Vauxhall Garde*.?Mr. Eaton, the hale old man of 77, is still walking, walking, walking, and will continue walking until Saturday evening next at 8 o'olock. when* he will have performed his one thousand quarter miles in one thousand quarter hours?provided his strength holds out. Bets to a large amount are pending on the result, and the excitement about it is consequently very great. Mr. Alexander.?Two nights more after to-night, and Mr. Alexander, the magician, will leave New York, never1 perhaps, to appear hero again. He must not be allowed to go, until his extraordinary feats and magical illusions are witnessed by all our cltixens. We do not \tnf\-m whom u mftPP ncrrs.?n>?l<? pvpninir Pkti 1m HtiMnt than I iu the Minerva Koonw. Alexander exhibits his great talent there. Mra. Kean has suffered a relapse, and will not be able to play her contemplated engagement at the St. Charles Theatre, Now Orleans. Mr. Oliver, late of the Vicksburg theatre, has leased the American at New Orleans, and will open with a good stock during the present month. James Wallack, jr. is about to.go out to Europe for a new wardrobe. Musical. Italian Orr.iia.?" 11 Barbiere di Siviglia" was performed by the Italian Opera company, at Falmo's, last I evening. The singers were iu good voice, and gave good entertainment to those who encouraged them by their presence. Signora Pico won from her numerous friends sufficient evidenco of the favor with which they regarded her performances. Sanquirico was in his element, and fieneventano did the Barber as gracefully as if the character were really in his "line of business," as they say i n the green room. To-night Signor Benedettl's benefit takes place, as every body knows ; and on Saturday evening " I Loinbardi"-? to be performed for the last timo ; and next week we are to have " Semiramide," which has been in rehearsal for some time. The Swiss Bkll Rinoers.?The Swiss Bell Ringers will play "Julius Royal," "Irish Quadrilles," "Home Sweet Home," with variations, and a variety of admired and favorite airs, at the Apollo Rooms, this evening. On Saturday they will bid adieu to the United States, and take passage for the continent of Europe, where, we have no doubt, a brilliant career is before them They will be assisted this evening by Miss Barton, the eoeomplished vocalist. CiiitiiTr's Minstrels.?Such of our oitlsensM admire Ethiopian music performed by artists of rare and acknowledged talent, are taking advantage of the temporary stay which Christy's Minstrels are making in this city, and enjoy themselves nightly at Mechanic's Hall, Broadway, where, for the small charge of twenty-five cents, they hear a number of the most celebrated pieces of Negro music, arranged expressly for this company by their leader L. r. Christy. These minstrels are well worth hearing, and all who go to bear them with the expectation of getting double the worth of their money in enjoyment, will not be disappointed. Mr. Dempster.? By the last accounts of Mr. Dempster, we learn that he had concluded a most successful tour in the North of Sootland, where he was reoelved with peat enthusiasm. He gave his farewell ooncert at Aberdeen on the 18th of last month. He was to proceed firbm there to London, and after singing in that city to return to the United States. { Medical Intelligence. The Coxvextiox i.v riui.aoei.rnia.?This convention is now. we believe, in session in our sister city, and to the profession at large Its actions will be full of interest. It is the second convention of the kind, the first having been held In this city on the 6th of May, 1H46. The New York State Medical Society first originated the idea of a medical convention, to consist of " delegates from the medical societies and colleges In the whole Union," which they thought would be the most likely manner whereby means might be taken "to elevate the standard of medical education in the United States." They accordingly met In this city, but from some cause or other, the representation from the various States was by no means a full one, and but very little was done; indeed nothing save the appointing | of committees to draw up reports on the best methods | of accomplishing the following objects, vis :?The Insti| mtlon of a National Medical Association; an Address to I the different regularly organized Medical Societies and i bartered Schools, netting forth the objcotl of said Association. The flxiug an uniform und elevated standard of requirement for the degree of M.D. Tho fixing the standard of preliminary education and acquirements to be exacted from students entering on the study of medicine; and finally to prepare a code of medical ethics lor the guidance of the profession in the United States. Vnother resolution was then offered, the substance of which was to take away the power of granting licenses or diplomas from the Medical Colleges, and State and County Medical Societies, and vest it in one board in each State; so that those who teach should have no power whatever to license also. This last resolution was refer] red to a select committee, who are to report to the present convention. Another very important resolution was offered and adopted, viz : That a committee of five be appointed to recommend and urge upon the several State governments the adoption of measures for a general registration of all blrtns, marriages and deaths among their several populations. The foregoing then is the gist of what was done at the last convention; and the reports of these various committees will be acted upon by the present one The medical profession in this country, as it now exists. is composed of probably as respectable and intelligent a body of men as could well be got together. In some of the States their business is proteetod by the laws against the intrusion of unlicensed practitioners. In other* again. >ew > orK, for instance, tne practice 01 medicine is open to every on* who chooses to assume the responsibility of It, and run the risk of an action for I malpractice In caae they are unaaoeeaaful, but In all ; the State*, w# believe It i? a conceded fact, that the regularly licensed M.'D. flnda protection enough in the 1 confidence of hi* patient*, and where the unlicensed or I ignorant man supersedes him it is because he is more sueI ccasful in his mode of treatment, and we humbly conceive that In such cased the public are right in employing those who do the best for thein.'Rutbe that as it may no on* will 1 deny that the public generally, as well as every individual patient, is keen enough to llnd out whether a man lias received a sufficiently elevated education to cure them or not. for medicine is a thing that shows for Itself: blockheads there may be. and undoubtedly are, honored unworthily every year with the title of .VI. D.; bnt the same happens in every profession, and doubtless will to the oud of time. The study of any profession is a very easy matter compared with thejirarttoe of it; it Is not the most profoundly learned man that makes the best practitioner; and we would veuture to say that place the acquirements necessary for obtaining the degree of M. D. as high as tboy may, still will they have an equal proportion of blockheads for all practical purposes receiving It annually, at the same time that in those States where no legal impediment presents It self to j universal practice, those who have passed through the ] strictest course of education, will find no trifling opposition in their business from those who not being able to 1 J?0!*11*1" tlmr or mcane for tb* lengthened curriculum that may be required, gather together enough practioal Information to carry theaa along throughtbo usual buslBin of flWfttiwwr, mhtttti? tttlt?ver. The truth of the matter is, if the medical profession wieh to raise their standing as a body of scientific and intellectual men. the remedy is la their own hands, and they can do it without the machinery of Convention*. Those of them who really wish to become better informed on every topic, can easily do so, withoat stigmatising as ignoramuses, the whole body of the profession, as T? so much the fashion now a days, among certain medical cliqvti. As for lengthuning the period of medical studies from the present term of three years, to five, or even seven, us lias been talked of, let those who propose this examine dispassionately into the working of such u regulation in the Kuropean Colleges, and coinuare the acquirements of the great majority ofgraduates there with those of the junior praetioner* in the United States, and they will be easily satisfied as to the benefit of such a rule ; but we have said enough on thla subject. Time will show how all this will end, and we trust, for the houor of the doctors, that, iu their own phrase, the, National Medical Conwntion for 1847 will go oil Tuto citv et jucuilde. Sporting Intelligence. Cknthevillk Cot hie, L. I.?Pacinu.?The pacing contest came off yesterday, according to notice. It was for a purse, mile heats, best three in five, under the saddle. for which five of the most celebrated pacers were entered, vis: K. J. Odiue entered r. g. Village Boy. J. D. M'Munn " ch. g. Capt. Waugb. A. Cook ' br. m. Mary Blane. I. Woodruff " r. g. Roanoke. Ii. Woodruff " b. g. Tornado. The latter horse did not show himself on the track, leaving the four others to settle the affair among themselves. Village Boy was the favorite against the field, and more money was offered on him than found takers. Capt. Waugh was not expected to do much, notwithstanding his previous great performances, lie was, us the result of the race will show, out of condition, and ought not to have been entered for the purse. Mary Blane seemed a stranger on the course, no one but her owuor iuu nuer oaring Buy connueuce ID ncr capaoiilties. Koanoke was looked to as the only competitor for Village Boy; his previously acquired fame for speed and certainty giving him thut place, although very few supposed he would win the race. There is a great resemblance In the appearance of Koanoke and Village Boy as regards color, size, and action. Bat to the race:? Kirst Heat.?A number of attempts were made to get the horses to the stand in a proper manner before they got off; flrst one breaking up, and then the other, on ncaring the score, until the patience of the spectators was pretty well exhausted. However, they Anally got a start, with Mary Blane about a length in advance of the others, which she held, with a gradual inoreoso, to the quarter pole; Village Boy second. Koanoke third, close after him; Capt. Waugh far behind, having broken up at the turn. Mary dashed on, making the distance between her and the two roans greater every moment, until she reached the half mile pole, which was passed in 1 m. 13 seconds. Before reaching this point, Koanoke broke up, and the mare felling a little, Village Boy came up with her; in the endeavor of her rider to force her along more speedily, she broke up, Village Boy soon after following iter example. The mare, however, soon recovered, but the horse could not be quieted. During this time Koanoke had settled himself down, and was rattling away at a tremendous rate. He was soon in front of Village Boy. and closing with the mare at every step. The mare tried hard to keep away from him, but his speed was too great for her, and he led home in i.33)4, two lengths ahead. Village Boy lost so much by his break, that he resorted to running to get inside of the distance Bag; which ho need not have dene, for ho was rightfully ruled out. Capt. Waugh never recovered his drst break, and was an eighth of a mile in the rear. Second Heat.?Roanoke and Mary Blane were now the only candidates for the purse, bnt Mary's chances of winning were considered small. At the flrst attempt, they got off. Mary leading. Koanoke close at her heels. They kept thus until they were past the quarter pole; when the mare broke up, and fell back about forty yards. This loss could not be recovered, for in each attempt she met with a similar mishap. Koanoke reached the half mile pole in 1:19; and came steadily along, the other half mile, without an effort, reaching the score in 3:36){. Mary Blane was distanced.

Thousands of our citizens are anxious to hear the bells at Trinity Church playod by ,the Swiss Bell Ringers, and It was thought that this wish was to be gratified, but notwithstanding that the 'artists were addressed upon the subject by an influential clergyman of the church, who called upon them in reference to the matter, yet they were, up to yesterday morning, left in suspense, having received no definite answer frpm the officers of Trinity as to whether they were to be allowed to use the bells. Why is this ? The bell ringers do not propose to benefit themselves, but generously propose to aid in the celebration of Friday,by adding this agreeable feature to it.

Sir:?Will you oblige me by publishing the accompanying article from this morning's Qluhc, explanatory of tne " Military bill,'' now before the legislature of this State, about which there has been published much misrepresentation. The bill referred to, if it becomes a law . will preserve that time-honored corps, the 1st division of artillery, flrom being disbanded?if it fails, our citlr.ons are deprived of that ever ready defender of their lives and property, and must look alone to the civil authorities for protection in time of riots. Tho gentlemen composing this command seek not to deprivo any officer, junior or senior, of his rights. ' The division has been commanded during a period of fifty years in succession by General* Storms. Morton, and "sandford; the last named gentleman has been at its head for some ten years. (From the Globe.) (}ra? Wo were In error yesterday in regard to the object of the bill before the Senate for the re-organization of the 1st division of militia. The law of tlio last session disorganised the uniformed corps of this eity. iiv depriving the present officers of their commands, ami distributing their troops to other officers commanding the un-uniformed militia. Governor Wright was so well satisfied with the impolicy and impracticability of that law. that he delayed carrying it into efTcct, to enable the legislature to review tho subject and correct the error. Under that law General Striker acquired no command: he was merely directed to divide the militaryMistrut into brigade districts. The object of the bill now before the legislature, is to preserve tho command of the uniformed troops under their present officers. General Striker never did command the first division of nrtillery, or uny body of uniformed troops in this city. He was one of four Major Generals of un-uniformed infantry, which, by the law of last sossion. was very properly blottod out of existence by a commutation of milltury service for seveuty-ilve cents. The bill before the Legislature has the united support of the uniformed troops in this city. Tho few officers opposing it are not supported by any part of the mill tary. They represent ouly their own individual views, in opposition to all those really interested in the mea sure. i ne iroops wno nostra ine passage 01 turn law art' the entire uniformed military force of this city, and consist of about five thousand persona. Tha bill provides in all cases that these troops shall continue to bo commanded by the officers whom they have elected ; and that the vacancies in the new brigade, formed of the Light Infantry Corps, shall bo tilled by election, in conformity to the Constitution of the Stntc Under these circumstances, wo think the bill ought to pass; as in case of defeat, the city will be deprived of its citizen soldiery. If any person wishing to disband tho artillery, and deprive the city of its services, whether to facilitate riots or fur any other selfish purpose, will attempt to refute this statement, over his own name, i pledge myself to prove the farts set forth. Very respectfully. ROBT. C.

The legislature has decided to adjourn on the 13th inet, >ut there is an iuiweuse aud increasing probability thut t will not udjourn on that day; the session may be ex- for emfed to the 30th iust., or even to the 1st proximo. 1 *01 lave now learned from a member of tho House, of prouineneo and talent, that the House will not recede from ! on he ultimatum it has offered to the Senate for the | ^ irrungement of tho judicial districts; that ultimatum , vas published in the Herald. The Senate, which seems ,o have an impression that tho House dare not adjourn j iu| vlthout acceding to the pro|iosal of the Senate committee "j' if conference, is in error, and has underrated the calibre fr< >f the whit; dictator in the house. That able person. L,i Juing perfectly confident of the propriety of the division ju <ffered by the House, will rather omit a duty enjoined ipon the legislature by tho constitution, than consent to eo ho terms of the Senate. 1 state this for tho information if the Senate, and it may be assured that it is not other- go vise. But let the Senate support the responsibility of F( in adjournment without dividing the State into judioial pi listricts if it can. This is one of the formidable difflcul- de .les that may servo to prolong tho present session th jeyond tho period selected for tho adjournment, co J'lie select committee appointed to investigate the ni natters connected with the lato refusal of Mr. Bishop fit I'erkins, of St. Lawrence to attend tho House during a nt .all when he was required to do so by the sergeaut at m irms, have already had one meeting, but liavo not deter- b? mined upon tho character of the report that thoy will th iubiuit to the House; the committee will meet again tomorrow evening, when their report will probably be so perfected. I think Mr. Perkins will be required to make so nn explanation and upology. and that if this be not^dorie pi lie will be reprimanded or expelled. 1 understand that to the committee will recommend such a proceeding. th An extraordinary petition was presented to the Senate si; this morning by A'r Harris, aud referred to the commit- lit tee on commerce and navigation. It was signed " Amos tb Kendall, president of the magnetic telegraph company/' of and uravs the Legislature to appoint commissioners to designate thr pluro of crossing the Hudson river with the in tlie telegraph. Mr. Kendall says that the line of telegraph from Washington to the shore of the North river, oppoeitu the city of New York, is q destined to he the main lino from which branches will diverge to the south and west along the tut Atlantic coast, and through the valley of tho Misslssip- rii pi, extending ultimately to the city of Mexico and the In Pacific Oceuu! Mr. Kendall ulso observes that "it is dl expected a year will not have passed before lines will be ? constructed to New Orleans, and as far west as Louisville, Kentucky; and that cro two years havo passed, ?r every considerable town In the south and west will be th connected through this medium, with your great commercial metropolis?(New York.) The interests of the city of New i ork, as connected with the telegraph, O already suffer, mid are likely to suffer more from the obstruction which the North river throws in the way of their correspondence. No mode has yet been tested by which the currents of electricity can be carried with security through the water for so great a distance ; and it is not believed that any species of wire, stretched from IV shore to shore, will be found to possess sufficient strength ol to resist the winds and storms. To concentrate in the V city of New York, as iu a focus, tlie news of the continent, there is no certain mode but the erection of supports M for the wire in the river itself, which it is believed can j,i he done with little or no danger to the navigation?with none, certainly, to be compared with the great commercial sml social good to be accomplished.'' Mr. K. then asks the Legislature to authorize the erection of " structures in the river, at the distance of n~quarter or third of a mile asunder, under such restrictions and n( regulations for the security of navigation as the Legis- il( laturo may deem just and expedient. Unless It can be rj made perfectly certain that these structures can he i-rected without embarrassing tho navigation, the Legis- ^ ;ature will not bo disposed to authorize their erection. p The Senate is now almost entirely occupied in com- (j pleting the great bill of tho session?the bill for the jj organization of the courts of this State. pi The llnusu has been discussing the general bill for tho " incorporation of manufacturing companies to day. " Both Houses will hold evening sessions next week a The proposition to create tho office of Director (iene- ri rul of all the rniiroud companies in mis mine, in apparently growiug in favor. In order to facilitate this object. Air. (t.

An attempt was made to refer the bill to the Committee on I'oor i.uws, which would probably have re- t! suited in its postponement until the extra session. The * hilt, on motion of Mr. Loiter, was laid upon the table, who gave notico to the Senate that ho would move to v suspend the rules to-morrow morning, so that it may be ^ ordered to a third reading. There eau bo no doubt hut p that the hill will immediately pass the Senate; but the majority in the House, from motives of expediency, and from a palpable anxiety to avoid any collision with the 0 temperance men, will suffer the bill to go over to the extra session. I spunk confident of such u result. .Mr. A. A.

Tlio emigrant hill having been * sent down from the Senate, and referred to a select com- a m It tee, to report complete. Mr' Develin, the chairman of (lie select committee, reported the bill to the House, and recommended a concurrence in the amendments of the Senate to the bill that originally passed the House. 0 Mr. SiesLts, of New i'ork, moved that the bill be re- ti ferred to the eommittco of the whole, which Messrs. s Iiadley, of Rensselaer, and Wright, of SullTvan. protested tl would have tho effect to defeat it at.least for the present session. Mr. S. nevertheless advocated his motion with tremendous energy and great feeling, lie disclaimed the design, gratuitously attributed to im. to defeat or delay .J the bill. He was evidently influenced bv objects more ,, liberal, and sagacious and honorable. The House, with- i, out u division, refused to adopt the motion of Mr. n Sickles to refer the bill ton eommittco of the whole. n The question reverted to the several amendments of c the Senate to the bill; some impalpable observations oc- * curred, wheu Mr. Bloss, of Monroe, moved the previous a question; the previous question was seconded, and Mr. Sickles demanded a division of the question, on the amendments.

The vote u|>on concurring with the remaining amend j menu of the Senate did not differ materially from the above vote. Mr Ui.ose. of Monroe. as a measure of reciprocity and courtesy to Mr. Sicklee. moved a re-consideration of the vote. It was then that Mr. S. dieplaycd eomogreat <1 unliti**n r>f elocution and oratory that he has never dis- \ played before in thin House; he alluded to the bill as es | pecially calculated to revivify that "execrable, revolu- , tionary. and bloodthirsty faction the native American | party, which has proved such a dire curse to this land." , TIicho were the terms with which he wpoke of " this party. He was very severe, and his sarcasm was sublime. Out it could not have the desired effect upon the House; the matter had been previously adjudged, and no common man could revolutionise the fixed Sentiments of the chamber. The * previous question was moved immediately after Mr. 8. i had concluded; it was seconded, and the House refused i to reconsider the vote on the amendments ol the Senate. So tile emigrant bill was passed, and to-morrow will become a law. ( A remonstrance was received by the Senate this morn- . ing from the mayor, aldermen, nnd commonalty of the the city of New York, against the passage of the bill ' which proposes to tax the people for the compensation of juro-s, instead of requiring the litigating parties to pay , the jurors1 fees A remonstrance was also received from s'-veii hundred seamen, who pay hospital taxes in the port of Now York, against the cont inuance of the pre- i ?"nt hospital lax. and also .against the appropriation of the funds of the seamen's fund and retreat for the mothers and wives of seamen. These reuionstraucrs ' were properly referred. r The readers of the .Veto York llrraltl will prohahly recollect that communications to the Senate from the Hon Zadok Pratt, and from George Wilkes, Ksq., in re- c gard to the projected railroad to the Pacific ocean from v Lake Michigan, were lately published in that paper - t Those communications were, by order of the Senate, referred to the committee on r/illroad". This morning. c Mr. G. Hard, the chairman or the committee, reported 1 to the Senate the following highly important preamble i and revolutions in relation to this subject. Yrtnmhlt ami H*%olution.i in rrtatton to the propottH cnnttnicrion n/ n Ixailronil ft om l.akr Michigan It Ih' Pacific Ot ran. in the territory of Orsgon. .1 Wheres*. the geographical position of tho United 1 States and her territories with tlx* Atlantic and r&elfie oceans for Its eastern and western boundaries, indicates ' It. us the natural route for the commerce of Asia: And, whereas recant politienl events and passion occurrences tend to give greatly Increased importance to that portion of our territory washed by the Pacific ooean : And, whereas tbejeomnicrce of that sen must very soon become an object of the greatest interest, as well to the Industry and trade of the country, as to the government and prosperity of the republic: And, whereas the experience of the present age lias conclusively proven that the sure t safe guard of a free government la to be found in a well regulated lysteni of internnl commerce, conducted upon cheap Riid speedy avonuss, and that these avenues, as a general thing, are best represented by rail roads: And, whereas a railroad from Lake Michigan to Oregon will tend greatly to consolidate the utiiou of the Mat's extend the commerce and promote the iigrlcol tural Interests of the country, while it will enrich the national territory 1 v bringing to a epi edy market, and at advanced prices, i|s hi:lirrto In ,rccs-.l ie lands : And whereas the con of su I al <id can but be accomplished by the plan proposed by t r.

Lestiis declined to move a suspension of the rules the Senate this morning, in order that the bill for a repeal of the excise law. that was introduced by r. Johnson yesterday might bo sent to a third read?. Mr. L. stated, yesterday, that be would make this )tiou to-day. but from some cause he has not done it. r Johnson, however, moved that the biii.be taken mi the table, and referred to the Committee on Poor iws, aud it was so referred. The Senate is discussing the bill In relation to the dicisry. this afternoon, and the House is debating the neral bill for the Incorporation of manufacturing mpanios. Lieut.

There are no government funds, no uneys to support the levies after their enlistment and ifore they enter the service. In order.therefore, to keep elr men the officers must feed them There is something left (to set us right iu this world; methlug to intriguo for diplomatists, and to annul the loinn judgment of judicial tribunals; something to ocuro pardons for condemned assassins, and something palliate the grief of meu. und tjie tears of ruined nanus.
