Bastard's Panorama or the Mimimtpi River New York, ^nnitny, January 0, 184C. ihe News from Washington. Neither house of Congress sat yesterday at Washington, hot our private and special correspondence by telegraph, is rather interesting. Rub your specs and go on. We have no further confirmation ol the rujnor regarding the probability of peace with Mexico, than what we have given ; but after due refleetien, we are very much disposed to believe that the statements v.*e gave are correct in all ; material points. We are not so sure that it will be effectu il, or that we are any nearer to peace than we have been. If the most recent rumor from Mexico, hv vvav of New Orleans, be cor rect, that General Scott has sent un expedition to Queretarn, where the Mexican Congress is reported to be sitting, 6uch fact does not look much like peace. The other matters of interest from Washington, refer to the Presidential movements. The difficulty and trouble among the whigs, between General Taylor and Mr. Clay, are not greater or deeper in Washington than they are among tne whig committees in this city. These troubles must increase, so as to produce, before long, a terrible disruption in tne whig ranks, unless, as is intimated by our correspondent, Mr. Clay alt aiiI/) vo ith Tit o \chirtk< 1 li rnit nrlirkii t tlif country, will be entirely disorganised, and the next Presidential question will be easily managed by the democracy. In fact, the excitement, and turmoil,and trouble, and passion, and auger, and sublimity, and folly, in reference to making Presidents, arc only beginning, both in Washington and New Fork, and thev will soon spread to the capitals ot the different States, as soon as their several legislatures shall have assembled. For six months to come, the whole country will be in a state of uproar aud confusion on these points. In the meantime, if the war should go on, and more money be required, the trouble will spread, and affect all our nferchants, our banks, our financiers and our traders, at the same time that the political fac'ions are disorganized anil demolished. We hope the sun and moon may rise regularly?and that the avinds may blow as usual. If they continue, ah is not lost. More Court Martials.?When Alexander the Great had conquered Persia, and died, in conse- I quence of a debauch, suddenly, his generals quarrelled among themselves about the succession, and tore eBch other to pieces, for the hopes of the empire left by the Macedonian conqueror. Mr Polk aid his generals, exhibit a little specimen of the same kind of game, on a small scale Mr Polk has conquered Mexico ; and, like Alexander in Babylon, when he died there : so is Mr Polk now in Washington?a dead cock in a pit?as dead as Alexander, and his generals are beginning to quarrel about the succession to the empire. But tue field of battle will be transferred from Mexico to Washington, where these generals will fight it out at courts martial. Such is at least the rumour, and we begin to put a great deal of faith iu the statement that General Scott, and three or four general officers, will all Ire ordered from Mexico, if they are not already, in order to get up a magnificent court martial at Washington City, to lust during the present winter and the coming spring and summer. Mexico has been conquered; hut the honor of the conquest does not seem to redound to Mr. Polk. Now, a magnificent court martial at Washington, in which all the great generals will be exhibited and shown up to the country, engaged in little petty quarrels among each other, wih bring about a revulsion in the public miud calculated to dim the glory of these military men, and put them, in public estimation, a little peg lower than the politicians and civilians. Jn fact, it will ruin them ; and instead of a "hasty plate of soup," this great court martial would be a whole kettle full ot soup, such as we have seen in the case of the Fremont court martial, which has turn* d out nothing but a hasty plute of contempt and derision, to the respectable parties on both sidee, concerned in it. Another such a court martial among our muit'-ry chiefs from Mexico, would have similar results, and would work well in favor of some parties at the coining presidential election. We, therefore, have full faith in the report that a court martial will be called, and we fully expect that General ?cott, and other high officer*, will soon be in Washington, to take a hasty plate ol soup. Post-Office Reforms.?We arc glad to see that the House of Representative* at Washington is determined to go into an investigation of the conduct of the Postmaster General. Mr. Botts, of Virginia, d"s?rves the greatest credit for his public spirit in this matter, and wf bops his example will be followed by every other independent member in the House of Representatives. A more awful condition of weakness, meanness, arm imbecility, never ruined any department in any government such as that which is exhibited under the management of the Post?)flice Department,by Cave Johnson. He is a man utterly unfit?from his obstinacy, littleness of mind, stupidity, and folly?to be placed at the lu-Bdof such a great institution. The Canada Elections.?The elections in Canada are not yet completed. The celebrated Papiaeau hao just published a very mnarkable address, in which be assumes the old ground that was the basis, snd which instigated, the insurrection in that couirry a few years ago. He is elected to the present Parliament, and no doubt will organize the radical republican party there again. When ttie Parliament met-ls in Montreal, we shall he able to give any important proceeding* of that body, the next morning, in the Ilrrala, that City being now connected with New Vork by electric Plegraph, the distance by telegraph being one thousand or twelve hundred miles I r*f.tfsui amiw# tut \Vntt>s 1^ tut# Cm| I r? tii>> has broken out in <!le wh'gratus.ln thip city, on the Presidential fjuesiioa. At a meeting of the vie teral Committee of democratic whig young men, held, at the Broadway House,on Friday evening las'. the following preamble and resolution wa-t otlered by Mr Ceorge A. Hnlsey, u delegate from the First ward :? Whereaa. tUU committee beholds in General Zechary Taylor those exalted qualities of the mind and heart, that fully entitle and no less qualify htiu for the first ofiloe tn the gift of the American people? Thereto re, resoleed. that we now unfurl the " rough and ready" banner to the breese and will nse all honorablfl Aifirtiona In untiira tliu clu?Hn? mf /luwoe.! 7.?ke.. Taj lor, to tbe Prviidrncy of the United States. This resolution threw the meeting into the greatest confusion ; every conceivable opposing motion wan offered ; confusion reigned supreme : nearly every member was on the floor at once ; some rushing for the door ; others exclaiming against the mover, who stood alone,?" murder him"?" put him out"?' kill the traitor"?" tie is a locofoco"?" shoot hitn,"fcc? were the cries. Order was soon pirtially restored, when the door was fastened and an additional sergeant-at-arms stationed, to prevent ingress or egress, and a resolution ottered to substitute the name of Clay for that of Taylor. The most prominent in the supsoit of the resolution was J.T. M. B.akt ly, a clerk in the Jeflerson Market police and one of the peace meeting; also, Charles Kiddle. The substitute, was carried by a vote of 46 for, 2 against (George A. Halsey, of 1st ward, and Colonel W. Lyon, of 13th 'Yard,) and three declined voting. The mover of the Taylor resolution was prevented I from speaking. The following resolution was then offered by Mr. Darliug: Resolved. That this committee reoognUa the seatim?:..j cootitined in the recent message of Governor > Yuuog, as ju:t, liberal, and patriotio. This resolution caused considerable fluttering among the majority. The resolution tfas understood 10 be offered in view of that part of the message relating to the war. Simultaneously, motions to "commit"?" lay on the table,"? " postpone lo '49." kc.. were offered, and finally iiie resolution was laid on the table. After this, as we are informed, the following resolution was oflered by Mr. Price, a clerk in one of the city departments: ltes^vi d. That (ieorge A Hulwy, delegate to the Voung ! Men's (Jttiieral Committee, from First ward, in view of i be remarks made by him in derogation of character of Henry t'Uy, d? serve* the just reprehas sion of this commutes, and that the self respect ot this committee requires that he should bs solicited to reaign his teat in this body. Tuts was passed by a vote of 46 to 2, when the 1 committee adjourned to the bar-room in a great state of excitement. What will the whig masses say to this 1 Are they lor Clay or Taylor I i That is the question. Fanaticism in run 19m Century?Perfectionists and Beastliness.?Although we live in i an age characterized by improvements in the : arts, sciences, and every thing else calculated to . promote the civilization and elevation of our I race, yet there is a vast quantity of benighted* j ness in the world, and in the United States. This retrogressive movement, we are happy to see, is not general, but confined to a few fanatical creatures and ignorant people, led and directed j by corrupt and designing men. It originates, too, under what is erroneously termed the prol gressive spirit of the age, which in reality has I nothing to do with it, but is rather directed and animated by a spirit oi barbarism, the same which prevailed in the dark ages of the world. As in those pencils of the earth's history, the mo6t vile and brutal passions were loosed from all moral restraint, and indulged into excess, under the sacred name of religion, so, in this nineteenth century, we perceive precisely the same. We have had the Mormons and their spiritual wife system, and the Fourierites and their associations, and now we have the Perfectionists, a new sect, which combines with its own nonsense the wor.-t features of both the Mormons i and the Fourierites. This sect originated at New Haven, Connecticut, in the year 1831, under the auspices ol a man named N'oyes. a licensed Congregational preacher, who has, from time to time, published papers 1 developing, at full length, the principles of the new sect. We remember that a colony of the Perfectionists was planted near BulValo, in this State, som*' years since; but their conduct and be haviour were so gross that the public authorities were forced to Interfere, and the result was that they were indicted and dispersed. They are now scattered in ditlerent pirts of the country; but the principal colony is located at Pultney, in Vermont. With a view of giving our | readers an insight into tueir principles, we clip the following creed ot theirs from their organ : U7n KJiuiia that a? (h.i rla.tan.IU. f 1 __ si. end of the Jewish dispensation, Christ came to believers tb? second time, according to his promise We believe that a: the period ot the second coming of Christ, Christianity, or the Kingdom of Heaven, properly begun. We belieTs that this eras the period of the fall develop-ment of the new covenant (iieb ?),which secures to believers perfect and eternal salvatiou from sin. lull freedom from written law aLd human instiuction. We believe that the whole body of Christ, i e , the Church, attained the perfect resurrection ot the spiritual body a', his second coming We believe tbat after ihie period, the salvation given to all men iu Jeeus < triet. included nothing l?ss than a perfect and eternal salvation Horn sin?a complete redemption from the law, and legal instruction?a perfect resurrection of the spiritual body, and a standing on the plain < f eternity, beyond the judgment We believe that Christ, as ho is in his resurrection and glory, is given to every member of the human race. We believe that none are Chrls'lans In any senso until they receive Christ in his (esurreoiion. We believe thst Christ in the resurrection Is free from sin, from tbe law, from all ordinances, and from death ; hence all who are subject to any ol these, are not properly called christians, as not having attained the hope of their calling. This is iheir creed; and the next question is, i what do they think ol the marriage contract! On this point we arc not left in the dark, for Mr Noyes, for the edification of his hopelnl flock, [ and as a rule for their moral conduct, has laid down the following principles on that subject in a letter w ritfn by him to the Battle Axe, one ol the Perfectionists' organs: ' When the will of Ood Is done on earth ni It Is In Heaven there will be no marriage. The tannins* supper ol trie l.sinb Is a feast st which every dish is free to every man. hxclujlvness. jealousy, quarrelling, have no place there, ler th? same reason as tbat whioh forbids he guests at a Thinks iving dinner, tu ciaita each his separate dish, and quirrrl with the rsst for his rights In a holy cotnmuuily, there i' co more rrnson why sexual Int-roourse should be re?tr.rn?J by law, thao why eating and drinking should be; und tb re Is as little oc catduu f >r fliame | j the ?us case m in the otht ?.

My claim upon h-r cuts directly across the marriage covenant of tbie world, and (jod knows the end." Ah an evidence of the extent of impiety and absurdity to w hicli this sect lias gone, we learn from tin* same paper, that the Pi rfectiopists, believing that th" Kingdon of God had come, put the question to u vote, whether it had or had not, and Mr. Noyes says, with the following result. He | gives his own words: " It >u unanlmnu'ly adopted. th?r>for?. a* the ooi.siat?rt testimony of the bsllavers assembled, that the kingdom if H?d lias come." We think our readers 11av * had enough of this Huhject. We have introduced it solely for the purpose of showing that, although we are in ?n at'-- of enlightenment,there sre some foul and dark spots on the present century. The Perfectioni ists out-Mormon the Mormons iu their spiritual wife doctrines, and are immeasurably in advance of the disciples of Fourier. S range infatuation?that people pretending to be gifted with the faculties of reason, should he led away in this manner. The Washington.?

With great respeot. yours Al. M. WAINWRIOHT. Treasurer of the Protestant Half Orphan Asylum. January 7th, 1849. W. v. Bradv, Mayor of tha City of New York. J Thus far, thus well. We like the majiner itt j wiucti tins black, mail has been distribated, eri ceedingly?one-half to the Catholics and the - othfcr half to the Protestants?precisely as we would have done ourselves ; for we wish to patronise both religions, and those who believe in them. It is true, we were born and educated a j Catholic; and, looking backwards, all our race ' were Catholics, from the promulgation of the | Catholic faith, during the middle and barbarous , ages of Europe; but in these latter days, since I the invention and discovery of Morse's telei graph and Iloc's printing press, and the esi tablishment of the Herald, we have become i more liberal and comprehensive in our re, ligious uotions, and we now believe in both the Catholic and Protestant faiths, with all their divisions and subdivisions, rejecting only those particular little doctriucs of either that contlict uud quarrel among themselves. The Mayor, accordingly, has pleased us very much in the distribution of this black mail, and we return him our thanks for his kindn.-ss in taking the trouble to do it ; and we trust and hope that Benedetti will sing some of his best pieces, to please the Mayor, at a future day, aud help a little farther the half orphans, or full orphans, or lying-in hospitals, of the city. Thus much for black mail and babies?now tor Benedetti. It was perfectly unnecessary ier that distinguished artist to put himself to so much trouble about what the newspapers or the critics sam 01 nis laienis. w nn some lew exceptions, an the ladies, it teems, are quarrelling about him? they are all his friends, nearly.Vfhe whole fashionable coterie are delighted to listen to him, and don't care a button about the critics. Yet he must bear patiently with what the newspapers say,although his hundred dollars have got a different and better destination than they would have done if he had sent them to some other critical quarters. It ought to be a lesson to him to change his tactics in these matters. If that littlesum of money, $100, had been sent to some of his critics, it is very likely we would have heard no more about it; only suspicions might have been createa by a singular change of opinion in some of those newspaper wri Some of those critics, it they had received such a prusent, would have considered themselves the half orphans, and the poor, intended to be relieved, and have kept their charity at ho We don't say all of them; for there is a difference among critics, as there is among pick-pockets. With these remarks, and this advice, we trust that Beneditti will go quietly to work, care little for the newspapers, attend to his diet and his : profession, and he will soon stand higher than , any other tenor that ever visited this country, wiih the single exception of Garcia. Bmedetti has a fervor and intensity in his style and manner, which almost approach greatness. He is a veiitable Italian in all the feelings of jealousy I and love. .Mario, with all his beauty of person I and of voice, doe* not make half tin impression on his nudience that Benedetti does. Benedetti feels what he sings ; Mario does not?nor does Gardoni. What Mario and Gardoni have in clearness of voice, Benedetti makes up in force, feeling, and intensity. We have heard Mario again und again, aud never once has he touched our icelings. He is cold?cold as nn English audience. In short, Benedetti has not as splendid or rich n voice as Mario; hut 1 he has more warmth, more feeling, and more eloquence. He lias not that perfect science aud those unrivalled tones that come from Gardoni; | hut lie Ins more life and animation : end as an nrtist, before audiences such as we have in New | York, who are only half educated in such matl ters, Benedetti is more useful, more agreeable, i and more delightful, than perhaps any that we I cou'd have at this day, from any part of the old world. 1 ! rr *v? 13 \ir~ . - * - lilt r<? ? w r r .\prci 11 IS 11 ' mistake that Bishop Hush'* i* to be went to | Rome, although he would make a very good minister, and would he received with favor by Ilia Holiness It is more likely that Bishop , Hughes' man, Mr. Livingston, of this city, or Mr. McKeon, was intended, although in our view of the matter, Chief Justice Taney would be the most popular to send to the eternal City. Some have named Mr. Benjamin F. Butler as one who would make a good minister to Borne, he being in favor of the stated preaching of the gospel, and other moral and important measures. On the whole, therefore, we would advise the President, if possible, to overcome all prejtidi1 ces, nnd send Bishop Hughea to Rome at once. We think lie would Hccept of the mission.

There are rumors of a defalcation in the treasury department, of $35 000 ; also in the post offloe department, somewhere in the north, of $50,000. W. GREAT AMD KNTHCSIASIIC MASS MEETING IN PHILADELPHIA, IN FAVOR OF GENERAL TAYLOR. Philadelphia, Jan. 8, 1818. The friends of Oeneral Taylor in Philadelphia made a j strong demonstration in his favor this evening. The J immense saloon of the Chinese Museum was thronged to ' overflowing at an early hour, and the galleries were ' graced by the presenoe of a large number of tbe most | lovely and fashionable ladies of onr city. Thousands ! were nnable to find ingress to this large and spacious ; building and the street in front was lined with crowds j of human boings, all eager and anxious to obtain admittance to the saloon. I Never via there more sealous and patrlotio feeling exI hiblted for an illustrious and tried hero, than on the present occasion ; each and every individual appearing anxioui to award the full meed of homage to the gallant hero of Palo Alto, Resaoa de la Talma, Monterey, and Ouena Vista. The meeting was called to order at 7 o'olock, and Dr. J 11. Mitchell, was appointed president, assieted by a large number of our most influential oitisens as Vioe , Presidents. Letters were read from the Hon. J. K. Ingersoll, C. J. Ingersoll, Lewis C. Levin, Osneral Shields, and others, apologising for their inability to attend. A series of resolutions were submitted by lien. Teter Sken Smith, and eeeouded by Ovid F. Johnson, which were reeevived with enthusiastic cheers, anl unanimously adopted. The assemblage was then addressed by David Paul Brown, Eeq , in his usual eloquent, forcible, and happy manner. lie gave a beautiful and Inspiring pictnre of the glorious battles through whloh Gen.

The overland express came through to day, bringing New Orleans papers to January 2d. They announce the arrival of the Portland from Vera Crux, haviog left on the 24th ult. The Intelligence by this arrival is of some importance, although only a few hours later than previous advices, brought by the Mew Orleans. There were rumors at Vera Crut, previous to the sail' ing of the Portland, that Oeneral Scott had deolded on pushing forward a oolumn of his army on Queretaro. The Portland brought over one hundred and eighty discharged soldiers, and a number of passengers. Affairs In Washington. Washington, Jan. 6. 1818. The Hon.

Before putting the word " end " to those fugitlve wrltinge. I with to give a short summary of iny ideas on the men and the institutions of the country I have juit visited The women? love generally, not precisely their husband, but their home. The young Udlej? enjoy the liberty which is no mors the share ot married ladles. The men ? have two worships: during the week that of the god dollar, and on Sunday the worslaip of the Lord. The children ? are men as soon as they are born. The people? know how to calculate, to read, to write, and to vote. The President ! he it more of a king than a constitutional king of Europe ; but his reign last* only four years The railways? are badly made, badly kept in order, going slowly and dangerous. The horses? go faster than railways. The steamboats ? are stupifylng, m ignlflcent and in numerable on each river. The bridges ? they are no bridges at all. Th? army ? Is oomposed of volunteers, who fight very well, bat only for a certain time As soon as their en gagement has expired, every one pave hie farewell to tb< enemy with the exaotltude which is the peculiar characteristic of a free man ; each soldier leaves to his suocesser the glory of vanquishing The trsde .' everybody makes it; everybody assooiatei with somebody to sell something. The doctors? form a partnership for the cure of the ick; they do not open hospitAs, but trade stores. The attorneys? form also a partnership, and, like the doctors, who sell "health," they sell "words" in then offices. The servants? all of them oome from Ireland. It ii inoredtble to see how promptly they appreciate the feel ings of their personal dignity, when they clean theii faces and become fat They beiieve that a free mar may receive wages, but ought not to do anything to ob tain the money.

Jersey Banes?Another Call.?We will stil continue to call upon the receivers of the Plain ] field Bank, to take measures for accepting th j proposition made to them by the recent proprie ' tor of that bank, for the redemption of the out | standing circulation. The receivers of tlv [ Plainticld Bank consist of highly respeetab! men, namely, Mr. Ilornblower, Mr. Darcy, o Newark, and two others. In the statement pub liehedby these gentlemen, it is intimated tha they could not accept the proposition mude b; Messrs. Beach, of this city, without the consen of the Legislature. This is a very queer thiug, t require the consent of any legislative body,of an kind, to perform an act which would lead to th redemption of the outstanding bills of a broke bank. But, to do away entirely with this e.v cuae, we call upon them immediately to get th consent of the Legislature to this act. Nothin but the action of public opinion in this case ca bring about the redemption of the circulation c this rotten concern. But we must say that w have not much faith in the Legislature of Ne\ Jersey?perhaps about as much as in the bank of New Jersey. Jersey banking is about th same thing, in point ot honesty or stability, witl the banks of other States ; and the legislation o New Jersey is not much better than that of othe Stated. When the receivers of the Pluinfield Hanli and the legislators of New Jersey, shall accej the proposition made by the proprietor of th bank, in this city, to redeem all the outstandin bills of the bank, in full, we shall then giv them credit for public honor and good inter tions ; but not sooner.
