Our telegraphic despatches will be found highly interestirirj '"-day. The intelligence from Texfs shows tV,at a v.-ai had broken out in that Slate between the Delaware and Camacche Indians, which was waging to such an extent that it was feared it would lead to a general war among til the Indian tribes of both Texas and Mexico. In the fight between the two above mmed trthrs, the Delawares were defeated with i e I ,-s of twenty-five of their warriors. Other nccoit ts of skirmishes between the whites and Oamanehes, cans- d by depredations of the latter tvg inet the former, arc also given. From Washington, we have our usual Congre.Vi ,.! reports ; nnd they will be found wor" thy < f p? in sal. The Senate, however, transacted very little ; enerhl business, tjje greater part of tl.e day bring devoted to debate 011 the tea re* giment bill, Mr. Powns, oi' Louisiana, having the floor. He was in favor ot the bill, and advoc a d the annexation of the whole of Mexico, the most sure way *>f ensuring " indemnity tor the pust and security for the future.In the Houv? of Representatives i( wasa busy day ; that body sp( mingly having takenoff their coats,rolled up tiieir sleeves, and gone to work with a determination to make amend* for their slothfulness during the previous eight weeks. To recapitulate the numerous resolutions and bills passed, would take up more space than we can spare today. We, therefore, refer the reader to the report, under the telegraph head, where also will be found the legistive proceedings, market reports, shipping intelligence, &c. The Treaty with Mexico. T.le treaty with Mexico is the topic of discussion every where. It i* talked about with tqail intensity, in hig'i a::d low society?by the rich and by the ptor. Some affirm positively that no doubt exists of its success, and others are as determined that there is no chance of a treety?that we eve now at all the peace with Mexico w?* ever will be; and that we never ought to leave that couutry, but keep it, for good or for evil. Dunn/thp campaign on the Rio Grande, it is very well known that General Taylor endeared himself to bis soldiers as much from his humanity and strict ju = tice, a = the simplicity of his character; but above nil, trom the simplicity of his costume. The soldiers, who have much tact, and n great deal of wit, iu these matters, had dut>b(-d him old Hough a^id R*ady in Florida, and the soubriquet was r^tai ned during the Mexican campaign. Gen'-ral Scott, who, with all his military genius, has some peculiar personal qualifications entirely difl rent lrom those of General Taylor, has received from the same quarter a different soubriquet. lie is known among the soldiers as old" Fuss and Feathers." Now, whether all this noise about a treaty with Mexico will end in "fuss and feathers," time alonecan tell. There is no doubt that the basis of a treaty has been r.greed on by the Mexican commissioners on the one side, and General Scott and Mr. Trist on the other. This ireaty w h to he presented to the Mexican Conirr'jB-dt Queretaro, which w*s to be held on the lirst of last month; but whether the Mexican Congress in the piesent state of public feeling i:nd * flairs in that country, would concur in such ;i treaty, is the very point at L-sue, and may be discussed on every species of probability. All the future movement* ol our government depend on the concurrence of the Mexican Conares* ir that projel; and ot their concurrence, or non concurr> nee, we can only know by some of the next arrivals from Vera Cruz. In the meantime the chances and the probabilities of this concur rence m v be debated in every possible way; bul no determination can be arrived at until tht lact in ascertained in the usual way. This is the pre.-ent position ??f our r<lation? with Mexico?.1 most singular, unaccountable, and curious position, ind<ed The newspapers mid the public, 'alk a gr?at d< al about peace with Mexico, while the fact is, that we have had peace uith that republic ever s>ince the capture ot its c ipita'; and we may continue to have peace f< r ti;e next few centuries, on the same terms. It has br n a mooted point among the masfe - in the United States, whether it would not be better to fini-li th conquf t of Mexico in this v -r, : n 1 conden c three Punic wars into one, rati -r th..n iittempt to pntc!i up another kind of a p'uee with tha' detracted country, which lias not materials enough to form an orcanised mid permanent government, and which never could comply with any conditions it might enter into with the Unit'd States. We are really o. opinion tiiat the United ut< and Mexico are nt this moment in the liond-of pp.ice ?that it ie<|iiires no other treaty than t t w :e!i the A mi rirm army bus extract ii Ire i i - that tiie best policy for this country to |iur, ir, under nil the circumstances, 1 ?<!' >t 'I y io I.old that country, to preserve it in it- i i )>' ition, and gradually to absorb it wi'ltin this v.i ,t re, uMic. ll the chance be given up now, t u:<.y no: occur again (or a century or two, or without wading through fresh seen-s ol blood, i n i frightlul expenditures of money. We have i., ,?ir possesion, under t i' con rol of the A merie m army, oneof the rich# ct territorit s on thin continent, and the very pec^e vau'ts ol the commercial world. We ought, by no means, to give up this chance; and nny tre ity that mi.;ht be patched up with the CongresB that wa |o meet ui Qu'-retaro, would, tor future peace with Mexico, be hardly worth I I II I -I. 'J 1 . IJpMW*?? thf ?h which it might b? written. Hy | force of fcrtn-? we have now impoaed peace in Mexico, and govern her with something like an organized government. We ought not to give up such a favorable condition of thinga, holding j j cit such good proapecta for the future. Let ] Mcxico be organized into a territory; its reve! nuea will easily defray the expenses of holding 1 | it, and yield a l.trge income besides. There ia no use in any other kind o( a , j treaty. We arc at peace. We have thrashed Mexico into jieace?and we ought to remain so. j Singula* Cki.rhration of the Birthday of Thomab Paine?Smearing? Eating?Drinking? Dancing ?On Sunday evening last, at the Mij nerva Room, the birth-day of the celebrated Tnom b Paine was solemnized by the delivery of a speech from the lips of Mr. Allen, of this city, b< fore a respectable congregation of old fashioned people, both English and Americnn. I The celebration was continued on Monday even- | ing at the Minerva Rooms, and carried on by ; darning, eating, and drinking, and all the festivities of the ball. A report of this speech will be found in another column of this paper. This celebration of the birth-day of Thomas Paine has been kept up in this city for many years past, and is not a greater departure from ! which have been had of the birth or death of I | Fourier, or even if the French should get up a \ | celebration for Voltaire or Rousseau. Thomas j ; Paine belonged to the same school of moralists | and thinkers us Fourier, Rousseau and Voltaire; ; I but in his latter days he made a greater depar- j ture from sobriety in his demeanor, and propriety ' in his daily habits. The character and history of Tom. Paine, or Thomas Paine, Esq.?if it is 1 desired we should be more respectful?are a study in themselves. Possessed of a remarkable : genius for literature and politics, he was, iu 1 t le early pirt of his career, an admirer and supporter of liberty, in opposition to kings mid lords. This spirit brought him over to t lis country; and during the revolution he did more service to the cause of liberty, by 1 his writings, than any other man?than even jtjr.rson himself. His subsequent career, how- i ever, in England and in France, rather turned j over the steadiness of his mind, and led lum 1 into a way of life suc'i as his last days misera- ! bly exhibited. The violent, gross and outra- j geous attacks he made upon religion, were extended, not only to mere opinions, but were carried j beyond, and lighted upon those who cherished j the Christian faith, who were shocked by the violence with which it was assailed. But even this would not have extinguished the brilliancy of Paine's career if he had not, with an utter prostration of his mental and moral ; pjwers, given himself up in his latter days to the J brandy bottle. There is no doubt that for several years before his death, Tom Paine?or the great Thomas Paine, Eeq.?was nothing but a miserable loafer, as bad as any of the vagabonds | who frequent th ^ owest grog-shop upon the Five Points. This unhappy aud unfortunate period of his life destroyed all that respect and veneration { which the earlier part of his career produced, und might have fixed upon all future generations Yet, with all these elements of intelligence aud power,of wcakuess,immorality and drunkenness, commixed together in his career, lie probably his left behind him more of a better spirit, as a legacy to the present age, than any of those philosophers, of similar hue, who eujoy more fame. Fourier, the French philosopher, of whom so much has been said, was eoually demoralized, ra3re foolish and silly, less efficient in his day; aud ytt men calling themselves distinguished and moral, get up celebrations to his memory. Voltaire is also vaunted at this day, aud he was a great genius; but his whole life was passed in the violation of the rules of morality, and at his famous chateau of Ferney, near Geneva, he lived in open violation of all moral ties, with Madame Chapelet. Yet that place is still exh.bited and looked upon as a place to be re- i vered, venerated and admi e Voltaire was a j man of a different genius with Pain*, more re- ; fined in taste and manners; ^ut with this excep- ! tion, his works perhaps ha> ; produced a higher I degree of demoralization among his countrymen ! | than the more beastly appetites of Paine could ever creatc among his followers. The constant repetition of these celebrations every year, by a certdin set in New York, may be looked upon as one of the freaks remaining i irom the la?t century. They are gradually dying j a * ay; and in a few years, the birthday of Tom Paine will pass by unheeded, like thaiof other equivocal reformers whose principles and prac tice in edrly lite are in open hostility to the principles both of thought and action of their lat, ter days. Removals in New York?May-Day.?House huntiug, as it is termed, has already commenced j in this ciiy, with a view to the change of residence in May next, when the usual annual migrations that characterize our citizens in this respect, will take place. Many of the new houses that have been erected during the past year, and such as are now in course of being built, have been already engaged for this pur' pose. About this season of the year the landlords generally get up an excitement, which has the effect to create a false alarm amongst tenants and room-keepers, and then they raise their rents upon the tenants already in possession, or compel them to leave, or at least threaten to do so. A question as to the right of the landlord so to do, arises here. But we ' I would recommend the occupants, or tenants, 1 thus early, to ascertain how they stand with ! the landlords in this particular ; and such as they ; find inclined to impose on them by this system ? I nf ruiainrr thpir rpnto In !*???.? > *<! . ? ' ? "?"l uuu I commence May day on this very firstday of Feb1 ! rimy. There is an absolute delusion among I tenants and room-keepers, altogether, on this matter of removing. Where rooms are vacated ' j in one place, there will be left a vacancy for 1 ' those who vacate in another; and our citizens 1 need not apprehend any great addition to our ; population, so as to justify this imposition on the part of the nndlords. However, this s-ason wc have had a large number ot houses built, in all quarters of the city, which will be finished for occupation in May and this bliou'.d have the ellect to diminish the rate of rents, which it is anticipated it will do considerably. To both tenants and roomkeepers, therefore, we would say, not to be S alarmed by any movements or threats on the 1 part of the landlords. Ttiere is an abundar.ee of room for all, and more than will be required this reason, in consequence of the erection of the large number of new houses; and should the landlords resort to their usual mode of creating i an alarm, we would just remind those who rent their houses or rooms, that it is something like the system of getting up a panic in Wall street, at least, for the ensuing year.

J' " I'1"' 11 F*w Tiutm-TAium?Th# Ion* eoMMVfr- j if* about free trade, and high tariffs, nod low tnrift.-f, seem to be exhausted at the present d:?y During that period of time when the manufacturing establishments ol' New England and New York were organising and coming into existence, their stocks became objects of great speculation, by the money dealers and others 1 Many of those establishments were started and 1 conducted by incompetent individuals, and of course, such factories broke, and the stock-holders lost all the money they invested in them Amid such impending dangers there was frequently a motive in the long tariff discussions which took place for years, in Congress and in the journals ot the d-ty. Speculation in factory stocks was the principal cause of those contests about the tariff, both here and at the East. Dur ing the last few years, however, more steadiness* has prevailed among the manufacturers, in stocks andiu the manufacturing establishments, and we hear less noise and less discussion in the public prints, or in Congress. Our manufacturing establishments, all over the country, are increasing greatly,with the increase 1 of trade, and when started by competent men, j their stock becomes valuable, and yields hand- J 9omely to the proprietors. The tariff laws have ; very little influence or effect on the present con- I dition of manufactures. The government may want a high duty, (or the purpose of yielding a heavy revenue to meet the heavy expenses of the Mexican war, or for other purposes; but the tariff laws of the present day are entirely beyond the reach of any influence similar to that which convulsed the country a few years ego. We are now in a state of repose, as regards tariff discussions, and we hope to remain so forever and a day. Theatrical aiul Musical. Park Theatre.?There was a fine bouse here last evening, and as Sands, Lent & Co. are so energetlo in bringing out new scenes almost every evening, the entertainments at the Park arc devoid of all kinds of monotony. Every evening they are racy, piquant, and as I amusing as equestrian performances oan b.*; and that tbsy nan b.> vury amuslQg. no one who has ever Tioited a first class C Ire in company, like the one at the Park, will dfny. Sands, th* graocful, and his qually charming little sens. Maurice aud Jesse, still receive as much applause as ever. Little Miss Madigan and Signor German!. in their equestrian scenes, were highly applauded on their appearance last evening, for the first time. And as for Perez, tbe contortionist, we think he must be made of gutta psrcha, for surely, never could a man with ordinary botes go into such knots and come out again all ssund, as he does. Tbe poney races form a very amusing scene, and were much applauded. Bowery Thkatrl ?The siege of " Monterey1' was brought forward at this house last night, and there was large and enthusiastic audience to witness it.

The sayings and doings of General Taylor are as familiar ns household words to every citizen now-a-dajs; and as tbe General himself is not here, why tbey take tbe next best chance, and go and see his representative on the stage of tbe theatre Tbe prominent, and indeed all the obaraoters in the drama, are w?U performed; " on oh acts well bis part;" and abundant and long continued is the applause. The drama of "Grandfather Whitehead" was performed last evening, previous to tbe spectacle. It is one of tbe most affecting domestic dramas we have ever witnessed, and scaroely any one is formed of u such rude stuff" as to be able to sit it out, without feeling somewhat tearful at the mishaps and troubles cf tbe poor old Grandfather His character was well rendered by Mr. C. Burke, and we noticed many ? moist eye during tbe prcgress cf the piece, particularly among the fairer portion of the audience. Tbe " Wife'a First Lesson," a very amusing piec?, concluded tbe entertainments of the evening and the Urge audience dispersed, well satisfied with what tbey bad seen and beard. Chatham Tmkatre ?The performances at this theatre commenced with the beautiful play of '* Love's Sacrifice," the part of Matthew Elmore being sustained by Mr. Warren, and we must say, although he read tbe part tolerably well, yet he fell very short of tbe high character entertained cf bis aoting, in the part of Sbyloci, on a former eventag. Time and study mxy improve him muoh, but be requires more graceful action, and a better knowledge of stage business.

The tableaux enucted by this company o artists, are taken from tbe ?orks of some ot tbe best of the old masters, such as RapUael, Rubens hr. and are very handsomely done.? A visit to Palmo's, of an evening, will certainly be a pleasant one.

One desperate battle had been fought, in which the Delawaren were defeated, with a loss of 25 warriors. The alleged cause of the war was an incur- | sion of the Delawares upon the hunting grounds | 1 of the Camanches, and also favoring the whites in the war between the Indian tribes and Texas. The loss of their warriors had excited the Delaware nation to revenge, and they would probably have a considerable force to engage in future conflicts. A general Indian war was apprehended, and it was rumored that several tribes had volunteered to carry the war to the city of Mexico. A party of Camanches state tllkt twelve horses were stolen from the camp of Captain Gillett, on the Scio, a few months since. Lieut. Cezzens and twelve men followed

them, and in nine days overtook and routed the Indians, killing seven. They recaptured the horses, and took others belonging to the Indians. THIRTIETH CONGRESS. KIRST SESSION.
