Our telegraph mmnury,us usual, will be found j under it? proper head. In Congress, the Senate whs principally occupied yesterday, with a discussion on the Ten Regiment Bill, Mr. Bell, of Tenn., having the floor. In the House, the debate on the President's message wae the engrossing topic. In the L?*gisl lture, the day's business was of little i. .nortance; the only question which passed the higher branch being a motion for ad- | journmert; while the Assemblymen gave but a 1 slight return of labor for their three dollar a day salary. We have market reporls from six com- I mercial points of the Union. Italy and the Pope. We give in our columns, to-day, a very well i written and interesting letter, which we received by the steamship Acadia, at Boston, from a distinguished literary American who happened to be travelling in Italy, at the last dat^s. We | i ? r_ I different parts of Italy, sent to us by the proprie- ! tore, requesting the AVtc York Herald to be sent to them in exchange. Among three is the Diario di Roma. the official organ of His Holiness the Pope, with a special request from ths proprietors of thst distinguished journal, that we should send them the Herald, as containing the best American news, through France to Rome ? We have also received a number of ether journals, from diff-rent parts of Italy, and likewise our regular private correspondence. But among the most interesting things we have received, is sn original letter, in the form of a plenary indulgence, signed by the Pope's own hand, which has been communicated to us by the Pope's chamberlain, and through the American consul at Rome, by way of gratitude for the interest which this journal has taken in the regent ration of Italy, first begun by his Holiness. At the proper time we shall give our readers some of these curious papers, with a fac timilt of the Pope's autograph. It appears that the recent proceedings in sympathy with Pope Pitis, in this city, have produced a terrible commotion throughout all Italy. In some of the Italian papers that we have received. the address sgreed upon at the meeting I at the Tabernacle is published at leng'h, being < copied from the New York Herald. In all quar- I ters, as will appear by the letter of our private | correspondent at Turin, the sympathy of America was rtccived with almost frightful enthusiasm. This is all right and proper; but we ars still afraid that that very sympathy will be the means t of stimulating Austria, and oih*r continental powers, to put down any attempts for the regeneration of Italy in the most extensive form. Italy was never 111 such an interesting condition as she is in at present, and every arrival will bring important intelligence from that quarter. Our arrangements in the various principal cities of that beau'iful peninsula are most complete for j the reception of all future intelligence from j there. Singular Religious Vnvem?iit_Progrrsa of ' Religion. A very singular lrcture was delivered recent- I ly, on religion and civiliz?tion generally, by Oreet'B Brownson, who it well known as quite an eccentric philosopher on matters of religion, philosophy, and ev? ry thing else. Mr. Brownaon expressed the opinion that the civilization of the present day has crown out of the influence and efforts of the ltnman Catholic Church during the early and middle as^es of Europe; and, also, that any further improvement and progress in society can only be accomplished by the same church, adapted and modified to the improved state of intelligence and philosophy of the present age. There is a great deal of truth in these views of the progress of the Catholic church in the present age. Bishop Hughes, the most noisy Catholic Bishop that evrr sprung up in this country, is very butv writi ng a series of letters, and publishing them in a weekly journal, in which he is vary severe on all other s^cts of Christians, and ; claims his own church and principles, and his j own opinions, and his own special views, to be the only true faith of Ciristianity. These | letters, however, are the most shallow that ever came from Bishop Hughes ; they are ell " fuss and feathers," of the most s'ale description, and would have been only tolerable reasoning for a monk four or five hundred years a^o. To give forth these notions at the present day, about catholicity, only shows that Bishop Hughes is two or three centuries behind the age. Mr. Brownson's views are much nearer the philosophy of the thing ; but Brownson is not so certain a Catholic as Hughes?the former having been by turns an Infidel, a Presbyterian, h Methodist, n Bjptist, a Unitarian, and cow a Catholic. Perhaps his next move will be to th* creed of Mahomet, or Confucius. Yet, ,n ?[ ite of these narrow minded and shallow e(n?tlf?, the Catholics, as a Beet, are increasing, and will continue to increase, in this country. T iteir rsh.iion is connected with the fine art*, in >re than of ar.y other society of Christinns. Music s"'l paintiug, and elevated manners, seem to be much more a part of the Caiholic seivic^s than ol the Presbyterian, or such like bald-headed sects, w|10 banish all the fine arts from their worship of God, and consider rags and holiness twin brothers. In this country thsrc is great taste lor the fine arts?a nstural tasle?as much, probably, considering our a?e and all things, as there is in Italy, or th? refined country in Europe. We have f-irni?S*d sculptors and painters, in proportion ?o our year*, more than any other ivuatry <u lit* world, and artists, too, el rmmm^ II i? the highest calibre. The coarse tastes of the Presbyterians, or any other sact that banishes the fine arts from their worship, will soon become unpopular in this country, and their numbers must diminish. Tin: progress of religion and Christianity in the United States, is decidedly onward.? Some of the various s.-cts are diminishing in numbers and funds; others are increasing; but in the aggregate, we believe there is an increase of all Christian sects, und particularly the Catholics, their increase being, we b-lieve, greater than ever. It is very true, | the income and subscriptions to the Bible Sociei ty have somewhat fallen off; the same may be j said of the Tract So<;ie?y. There are not to many fanatical exhibitions at the Tabernacle and oilier places; hut there can be no doubt that the number of quiet and sober religionists is increasing?:hat the clergy are increasing, and that the aggregate revenues of the various churches are increasing. Probably, J however, the Catholics increase more than any oihar sect of Christians. "We do not , think, however, that this increase has grown out of the efforts of some ot the Bishops and loaders of the Catholjo church, but out of the improved tone of the age?the liberality ol opin, ion which prevails in all quarters, and the tolerance v hich is exhibited towards opinions of all kinds, even opinions anti-religious,and incon uisipiu wun oiirisuamty. We are satisfied that, on the whole, religion is prospering and infi lelity going down. At this day, there are probably ten thousand clergymen, of all kinds, in these United States, receiving an aggregate salary of five millions of dollars. In j the way of charity and religious contribution*, of all kinds, we estimate that, in the aggregate, the amount paid for religion and worship, and religious purposes, is equal to ten millions of dollars a year?a pretty considerable sum to be paid voluntarily by a nation embracing twenty-five millions of thorough going democrats, who are, of course, considered ignorant and irreligious by the well fed, stag-hunting clergy of Europe. The Post Office Advertising?Triumph of theHerald.?We received, yesterday,from Mr. Morris, Postmaster of this city, a note communicating to us the information, that after examining the several affidavits presented by the journals of this city, the JVetu York Herald hud been selected by him as one of the papers which, under the law of Congress, are entitled to receive the advertising of letters not called for at the post office in New York. This is no more than what we exptcted. The Tribune never was entitled, from its circulation, either in this city or out of it, to any of that advertising; and that paper has had it for nearly three years, in constant vi lation of law, and merely by the leniency and tolerance shown by us towards its duplicity and deceit. It is now established officially that the Herald has one of the largest circulations in this city, and we can establish it to the satisfaction of any reasonable man, that the Htrald has the largest comprehensive circulation, taking the whole country and foreign parts into consideration, of any journal now in existence in th* civilized world. One other paper in New York may have, a larger circulation in some small localities among the poor, who want a cheap journal; but the circulation of the Herald among all classes, and all parties, of the highest intelligence and the greatest worth in (tie community, is larger than that of any other paper in the world. In giving us this advertising patronage, the Post Office Department could not help itself. We - r> t?i .u- i a.iw nut iuucuicu iv \_/a*t juuuovu au me ieasi| and therefore we shall not relax an iota in our efforts to get that incompetent individual out of the place which he so disgracefully mismanages. The very patronage which the Department, under the law, has given us, will enable us the mure to put in, occasionally, a few rich licks, without any extra expense, against that incompetent functionary. Thus much on this point. Now let us say a word to the auctioneers, the shippers, the merchants, the brokers and the bankers of Wall street. On every occasion, the Htrald is ahead of every other paper, in giving them intelligence most necessary for the management of their business. In shipping intelligence, financial intelligence, and every other Wind of intelligence, we furnish it earlier, better, and more completely, than any other journal. We have gon? to every expense, and snared no money, no matter how large an amount, in making our paper what it is, and we can claim credit, that whenever a steamship is expected to arrive, operations of all kinds are suspended until her news is published in the Htrald No later than yesterday, we give them shipping intelligence and financial intelligence, obtained by us by express, arranged at great cost, almost exclusively. Yet, in spite of all this enterprise, and all the vast outlays of money which we are continually making to carry that enterprise to the ver; doors of these classes of men, these brokers, and bankers, bnd shippers, and auctioneers, and financiers, prefer giving their advertising patronage to a f<*w lazy, iudolent journals down-town, which exhibit no enterprise, make no effort to place the latest news before their patrons, and have but a very limited circulation among the business classes of society. The Post Office Department acted with equal meanness, until we compelled th;m to behave decently; but the brokers, bankers, shippers, auctioneers, and jobbers, and others, who receive the principal intelligence on which they make th- ir operations, from this paper, ahead of all other sources, and yet give their advertising patronage to papers of a limited circulation and no enterprise, exhibit a specimen of the meanest and most contemptible conduct that any class of men, in any country, in any age of the world, ever did, or we are sure ever will do. Ge.'NKRAL ScO'I'T amd TDK ADMINISTRATION.?It is now generally supposed that the cause for ordering a court of inquiry upon General Scott, grew out of his disobedience to the orders of the c: AU... ...L? n_ L:_ orti *: n** y ui a< | nnu is uuiiBiliuuuuaiijr Ills superior. General Scott is, without doubt, a strict disci, plinarian towards all those who are under him, and who receive ordera from him; but he may I have forgotten that the principle of obedience appliea as much to himself, in his conduct towards hie superiors, as from his inferiors towards him. The General-in-chief must obey the War Department, as much as the War Department must the President, or the officers obey their superior officers in the field. It appeara that he has not communicated with i the Secretary of War for a long time, and has ; manifested insubordination to the directions ! emanating from Washington. If this be so, it is a violation of duty which cannot be overlooked, ; notwithstanding his great military talents in I Mexico. Mr. Trist, no doub\ if he has endeavored to enter into negotiations since his recall, is also subject to the penally of tlie laws for such an offence; and there is no question but that the administration will make both negotiators, equally amenable to the laws they have violated, whether military or civil. From this view of the case, the friends of Gen. ' Scott had better wait before they let out all their 1 sympathy. Much may be said on both aides, ' even now, and much mny have to be said hereafter. Justice will be d?r.e to General Scott by the public and the country, despite of all intrigues; for as a military man, he is one of the I first of the age. Gen. Taylor is the only man wh?) surpasses him in moderation, dignity, ntilij tary skill, and cfjiuprehennive propriety of cha1 itoter tad goaduct. m Presidential Movsmxnts.?The whig committee of this city have agreed, by a vote nearly unanimous, to prefer Henry Clay as a candidate for the next Presidency, and to recommend him to be taken up by the national convention. Wt also understand, that a public meeting will soon be called in this city, for the purpose of nominating M". Clay forthe Presidency, Babject, however, to the decision ofanationil convention; and great < fforts will be made to render this meeting the greatest of any which has taken place at any time in New York. There is no doubt that the great body of the whigs in this city, and it appears in the greatei portion 01 mis state ana i\ew England, art- ai present most favorable to Mr Clay for the nexl Presidency. The manifestations are too open and too numerous to leave any room to doubt the fuot. That section of the wings whose centre is in Wall street, and who are known as the "pipe-laying" clique, who have come out for General Taylor, seem to possess very little influence among the rank and file of the whig party. Indeed, the Taylor movement here, we must admit, has been singularly impeded and diminished, inconsequence of the bitterness, the violence, and want of harmony, amongthe cliques and clubs who are in its favor. Tne Rough-and-Ready Club, so called, has in it a small number of persons who have come out openly for General Taylor; but they present strong points of antagonism to the pipe-laying clique in Wall street, who have called the great mass meeting on the 22d ot next month. Both Mr. Iiale and the Journal of Commerce are favorable to General Taylor; but are equally hostile to the Rough-andReady Club and to the pipe-layiag clique; so that there is no union, no harmony, no adhesion, among the raw materials of those who support General Taylcr. The friends of Mr. Clay are warmed up, of late, and conceive great hopes of getting the vote of New York, from the serious divisions in the democracy growing out of the Wilmot proviso. Their hope ia rational, too. The friends of General Taylor, on the contrary, seem to have but little hope of success at the approaching election; but many think the best policy will be to nominate an electoral ticket in every State, in his behalf, during the present year, to run it and get as many votes as they can, and so make an organization for the next election, four years hence. It is difficult for such a man as General Taylor to break down, ali at once, the heavy shackles of the party discipline of the old factions. General Jackson had to run twice before he could do it, and the probability is that General Taylor will have to do the same thing. Thk Rubs Pavement.?We are pleased to observe that a movement has, at last, been made in the Board ot Common Council, to introduce this admirable plan of paving the streets, in the leading thoroughfares through which the different lineB of omnibuses pass. We have repeatedly called the attention of the Corporation to this subject, and now that it is regularly before the Board, we trust that no party opposition will mark the proceedings in reference to this most useful and serviceable plan of paving the streets. The piece of the pavement opposite Stewart's, in Broadway, has now been sufficiently tested, and there it stands, as solid and firm, and in as good order, as when it was first laid down. What a saving of expense does not this effect! Since this piece of pavement was first laid down, we have been somewhat curious to observe the con* dition of the other parts of Broadway?and what a condition ! Here we find the pavement upon the old plan, deeply rutted and filled with mud, and all kinds of filth, with batches of men here and there, turning up and laying down the cobble stones, which cannot possibly withstand the travel of the heavy omnibuses, cabs, &c. for more than one or two weeks ; and thus a perpetual jobbbing is kept up, during the entire year round. We would venture to say, that one year's expense of the labor thus employed in Broadway, if applied in laying down the Rugs pavement, would go far towards its completion ; and then, on the score of economy, how much would not this effect ! The pavement would be not only durable, but we might say, almost everlasting. But there are other considerations?the cleanliness that must ensue. There would be but Utile trouble in keeping the streets clean. We would have little dust in summer, little in winter, whilst it would add considerably to the beauty of this leading thoroughfare. These remarks apply with equal force to the other leading thoroughfares; and as ihe project is now fairly before the Common Council, we cannot see how they can hesitate to let i-t become the law. The New York Hbrald in Europe.?The London, Paris and other European journals, are full of extracts from the columns of the New York Herald, embracing politics, commerce, and genrral articles of all kinds. The London journals, particularly, copy at great length, all our articles on commercial affairs, explaining the financial position of this country, in connection with the commercial movements and purposes of the great London capitalists, including the Rothschilds and others. One of the leading journals states that the commercial expositions and articles of the Heratd are the most complete ever published; and what is more, they are correct to the very letter, to its own knowledge. Indeed, we know from private sources, that the commercial and general articles in the Herald produce as great a sensation on the London 'change, as they do in Wall street. Opera Squabbles.?We have intelligence from Boston, communicating to us some of the squabbles of the Opera managers here, and the troupe they sent to Boston. It seems that S&nquirico, one of the managers, and the Boston detachment, had each other arrested and held to bail. Signor Vietti and Avignone are all quarrelling about the salaries and the benefits. Biscaccianti seems to be the only one who is not in difficulty. We have had several inquiries made to us from Boston about Signor Albinoli?what is Imposition in the Opera!?aad who are the responsible managers here! In fact, the company seem to be squabbling on all sides; but we hardly think these squabbles are worth giving to the public. Arrival or the Pacwwt Ship Fidelia.?The plendid packet ship Fidelia, Captain Yeaton, arrived yesterday from Liverpool, after a quick passage over the Atlantic. She sailed on the 3d ult., and has, therefore, made the run from port to port in twenty-nine days. Captain Yeaton came within twenty-four hours of bringing us three days later news from Europe. Major Cienkral John A. qnitman.?We understand that this distinguished soldier, who 11 a native of the State of New York, celebratec for his gallantry, will arrive in this city to-day at two o'clock, by the train from Philadelphia The officers of the 1st division of artillery have made arrangements to receive him, and conduct him to the City Hall. Th* English Mail St?am?rs.?Our privatf advices from the British Admiralty Office stati that it is in contemplation to change the day o departure of the mail steamers from Liverpool from Saturdsy to Wednesday. They will, w< understand, continue to depart from Boston anc New York en Saturday. Senator Davis ?We learn that the reportet death of Senator Davis, of Massachusetts, i incorrect; and we bi? happy to state, that he n i rapidly recovery from bis late indiapeaitioa ?

' He was called to order by Mr. King, of Georgia, Mr. ?
