This is a s-riows drawback, as the value of the corn bus been greatly lessened by the deterioration the quality lias suffered by the prevalence of dajip soft weath-r throughout the winter. The stippli-s of new wnoat have ,?p ly come forward in wretchedly bai order and unless * > have au interval of shayi frost th- condition is lively to heroine worse rather than better. Under these circumstances anythiag like sclivitv in the trade can scarcely be calculated on, and the confidence pretty generally felt a few weeks ego. that wheat would with the opening of the Dew year rise in vaitte, hasreifiitlv been a good deal shake' Hitherto, however, holders have displayed considerable tfrmn*8*. but whether prices will be long supported if the Killers and der'?rs do not buy somewhat more freely, is in our opinion exceeding y questionable P. ople begin s ready to talk of an early opening of the Baltic,- and though by the latest accounts si! wss still fr-ir-n up. it i* quite natural that 'h? .xtrs-rdinary mildness of the s?ason here should 1-ad to the belief the winter may prove of shorter duration on the cootinrut than In ordinary years Oa the, tee trade has lost a portion Of the firmness bv which it was characterised previous to Christmas and 'ess cooflderce is decidedly felt as regards tl'.s tuture This h is been pWtuly manifested by Th?

' The telegraphic wires furnished no news from l the south last night, the mail with advices from New Orleans having failed to reach the southern extremity of the line. The Coi.jreasional and Legislative reports, however, came to hand, the Postmaster General, luckily, having no control over the transmission of intelligence by telegraph. In the Senate, a resolution of thanks i was offered to Col. Doniphan and his command, lor their military achievements in Chihuahua. ! Mr. Cass offered a joint resolution, authorizing 1 an issue of silver medals among those offii cera and men, of the regular army, who dis tinguished themselves in the Mexican campaign; j and for the appointment of aboard of officers, to examine and report the names of those who arc worthy of such honors. A bill was s passed to increase the medical staff of the ? army for a limited time. The special order * of the day?the Ten Regiment bill?was taken - up, and u speech from Mr. Underwood, of j Kentucky, in opposition to the bill, detailing a a catalogue of financial and other difficulties that " must overtake this country if the prosecution of t tl;e war be persevered in, brought the day to a y close. In the ;House of Representatives, the il war loan bill was the most important subject * under consideration. Mr. Marsh, of Vermont, b aod Mr. Brown, of Mississippi, occupied the j full nm.tsure of time allowed them by the one i. hour rule in the discussion of this question ; the former in opposition to, and the latter in favor t of, the bill. 4 The report of the legislative proceedings ton day, as has been the case during the greater part - of the session, give evidence of the political manoeuvring going on in both houses, in the ? creation of offices for favorite partizans, principally lawyers, who have been deprived of lucra: tive berths by the alterations in the constitution of the State. Our report exhibits the progress ' of this spirit, in the appointment of referees in t equity, and in the debate to ascertain in whom ' will the power rest of appointing commissioners of deeds and notaries public. The General Mai nufacturing law passed the Senate, with the b Oriskany clause conditionally attached thereto; * which, with the business above mentioned, is * about the extent of the day's doings. * The News from Europe, " The news from Europe, which we publish in r this day's pnper,continues to be very interesting, and to bear out the speculations and opinions 1 we have already given to the public, on the vae rious movements now going on in Europe. It embraces a space of only about eight days; J hut in that brief period of time, the fluctuations ,f in the markets ure quite interesting. Corn and * cotton move in a s-e-saw way; when corn goes

s u:ia little, cotton goes down; and when cotton J goes up, #orn goes down. After a few fluctua0 tions of this description, the prices of both reachn cd about the sfhne point at the end of the eight ,! days, that they were at the commencement, so that the great staples in the English markets are 9 pretty much in the same position that they were , in at the time of the sailing of the previous 1 steamer. ! It is a period of repose in commercial affairs, that period that intervenes between seasons of J creat speculation. The money market is in a simi1 larcondition. The specie in the Bank ofEngland [ is gradually increasing, having reached well i nigh twelve millions and a half. Discussions ( w ere held in that institution, on the propriety of I diminishing the rate of interest, but no resolution was taken on that point for the present. * Failures among the commercial classes were , disappearing, and. on every hand, trade and com' merce appeared to be gradually and slowly reachi ing firm ground. When the specie in the Bank J of England shall have reached fourteen or fifteen millions, when the interest ot money hall have been lowered, it is probable that the great capitalists will mike their usual preparations for unothervast speculative movement in the staples of commerce. The rest of the world is entirely in their hands, and must Hubmit to their operations sooner or later. In political atfiirs matters are, also, in a state f of calm and repose, both in England and on the t continent. Parliament is not in session in Lon| don. All the old parties seem to be broken up; i everything is in confusion and fog, and the same 1 characteristics apply to continental affairs. In i France, speculations are indulged in on the re| suits that would probably grow out of the demise of Louis Philippe, who is now old, and whose health is not very strong. The affairs of 1 S<vnzeriand are pacified for the moment, but an ominous aspect of excitement appears to be afft cting Italy, under the auspices of his holiness : the Pope. According to all appearances and all ! accounts, the Italian peninsula will present one ' of the most interesting conditions before : six months, that it has done for the last two I thousand years. Pope Pius, by the journals I of London and Paris, is beginning to be denouncI ed as a revolutionist, as a Jacobin, as a disturber ! of the peace of Europe, because he will not subI nut to the articles of despotism from Germany. Symptoms nre developing themselves favorai ble to the belief that the Pope may create a revo' lution in Europe, in connection with the reconstruction of the Catholic religion, that will pre' sent a new phase in the history of the civilized WOrW. j 40* >'wr local motr*r, * fourth pif> / CotnncftciAL Failttms?Th* steamer bring* a* accounts of additional commercial failure* in Europe, England, and elsewhere. Of the moat important of those which have recently taken place in Havre, we are sorry to say, that the highly respectable and long established house of Delaunay k Co., of Havre and New York, has suspended payment, and, it is generally reported, to a large amount, probably half a million of dollars. A few weeks ago, one ot the younger members of this house here, embarked in one of our packet ships for Havre, in consequence of receiving intelligence of the failing health of his father, the well known founder of the house in question. By this failure, we un derstand a number of our French importers will be affected, more or less, but we hope not very seriously. The house here were the bankers o' the Italian opera; but that establishment, from the perfect equality between its expenses and receipts, can receive injury from no quarter whatever in the banking line. In the recent revulsion, Havre has received a pretty severe blow. One of the most important failures heretofore recorded, was that of Bonafic & Co., and to that we have to add the present. Indeed, we are afraid that more failures will take place in the American trade with France. Ano iher idea, also, seems probable. The merchants of New York and other large cities on this continent, have hitherto stood the hurricane remarkably well. We have escaped with comparatively few failures?those of Prime & Co., Benafie & Co., and Delauney & Co. being the leading ones, all ot whom, however, were engaged in the exchange business. We much fear that the terrible revulsion that has taken plaee in England and other parts of Europe, will yet exhibit its effects on the trade of .New York and this country. It is impossible for so many suspensions to take place on that side of the water, without involving vast losses to the merchants in this and other cities, and we have yet to see how we can get through the coming spring and summer. The New Police Bill.?On Monday evening next, we understand, Mayor Brady will present to the Common Council for their approval, a new police bill, or an improvement on the present system. The following are, we learn, about the main points in the bill:? In the first place, the number of Btation houses will be reduced from eighteen to nine, and a captain with two assistants will be appointed for each station, to be on duty night and day. The night police, or watchmen, will consist ot 500 men, 250 of which will be on duty during each night; and to ensure the puncfual attendance of men thus appointed, a chance list will be in attendance at each station house, so, that in the absence of any regular member, one of the chance men is placed on duty to fill the vacancy for that night, receiving the pay for such service, which is deducted from the regular policeman. The day police will consist of fifty men, dis. tributed in the several wards, ub occasion may require; in addition to which, the mayor will appoint 100 marshals, to attend the police offices, and other courts, who will receive a small salary, together with such fees accruing from such court as was heretofore prescribed by law. A superintendent will be appointed, whose duty it will bs to oversee the whole department, under the direction of the mayor. The above are the main features of the bill, which, in all probability, will become a law. Thus savin? the tax uavers of this citv two hundred thousand dollars annually less than the present system. And the property will probably be as well guarded, and possibly better, as each post allotted to a policeman will be filled nightly; but as it now stands, nearly halt the posts in many of the wards are left unp|ptected, through sickness or want of industry, by those appointed to perform the duty. The Accepted Bet.?We gave notice yesterday, in a regular way, to Messrs. Greeley'and McElrath, of our having accepted their bet relative to the respective circulation of the two papers, the Herald and the Tribune. We also advise them now, that we have deposited two hundred dollars in the hands of Messrs. Fersse & Brooks, No. 65 Nassau street, as the amount agreed upon on our part, to be determined by the issue of the investigation between the two establishments. We request our Fourierite contemporary to place a similar amount in the same hands, or to select any other respectable house in which the two sums can be safely placed. Let us proceed at once in the investigation. Messrs. Greeley and McElrath, we wait for you to move. The sooner the bet is decided, and the two orphan asylums receive the money, the more advantage it will be to those institutions at this inclement season of the year. A Locofoco Orator in Europe.?Some of the London journals republish a portion of the famous speech made by Judge Barton, of Philadelphia, at the great locofoco meeting a few weeks since, in whicti he served up Queen Victoria and P Albert, in very bad taste, to say the least t The indignation of the English journals is v natural; for the speech of Judge Barton was anything but creditable to him, to Philadelphia, or to the party to which he belongs. We hope the report of that speech, which was perfectly correct, in spite of all attempts to im. pugn its accuracy; and the publication of it, will teach those violent speakers to be, hereafter, a little more temperate, and introduce better taste in their tirades, involving the character and reputation of any person, whether high or low, or wherever they live. Opera Affairs.?The controversy relative to the skill, taste, and talents of Madame Biscaccianti, is just as warm as ever between the various critics; and the question whether she is a great artist or not, seems to be as much undecided as it has been on any former occasion. The critics of the two Couriert denounce her plumply and decidedly as a failure, and no artist. The critics ?f some of the other papers deny this sweeping decision, but admit that she has some faults, and has more talent and genius than she receives credit for, and has greater power than any other soprano attached to the troupe. She only wants a little more cultivation. One thing is certain in this curious controversy,and that is.that Madame Biscaccianti hasdrawn fuller houses during the evenings she performed at the opera, than any other soprano or mezzo soprano of the troupe. If she has no talent, no genius, no taste, and is no artist, there must be something ahout her very original and curious, which briugs forth the people and fills the house, as she appears to do on every occasion she sings. Farcy Balls at thk Otera.?Why don't the managers endeavor to get up a few fancy halls at the Astor Place Opera House, on the off nights of the opera They would yield handsome contributions to the somewhat empty treasury of the : troupe. It is said that there have been subscriptions made among the subscribers, amounting to fourthousand dollars, in private contributions, to pay off some of the back debts created by the company. We are afraid that this attempt to establish a permanent opera here, will fail, unless more economy is introduced. They have artists enough for three separate and independent trouprt, and are paying three times over, when ons troupe would be sufficient. There must be some change in this, or there will be a regular swamping of the whole concern. We again say, why don't they get up some fancy halls 1 Our Foreign Correspondence.?We have re? csived nareral intonating letter* from oorra,' youdeata in RmrrtP?t which w* shall five kl an j arir day | TELEGRAPHIC INTELLIGENCE, Mall Vallate,.

The war loan bill was then taken up in committee. Mr. Marsh, of Vermont, addressed the House, believed that the annexation of Texas was the mean produolng great evil to this country. Gentlemen of North think so, and he was sure many of the Southi people and their representatives were beginning to tertaln the same opinion. The great question now is, h peaoe shall be obtained? No peaoe could be honorable the United States that was not honorable to Mexi He had said over and over again that the United Sts owed Mexioo compensation for the loss of Tesas.

We oould gsin nothing by i nexlng them, and he would have nothing to do w them. He next took up the war, and the met proposed for sustaining it. The Secretary of I Treasury proposed a tax on tea and coffee Others proposed to tax bank stock and i property. In his opinion the government oould net s oeed in imposing any of these taxes.

Mr. Browh,of Mississippi, spoke at considerable leni in support of the bill He took up the history of] Slidell's commission, and his correspondence with I Mexican authorities ; the position of General Tay and his movements with the army under his oommi previous to the breaking out of hostilities. He oontei od that General Taylor was not sent to the ] Grande, nor to Matamoras. The war was broui on by the aot of General Taylor himself. But (Brown) did not blame that general, as the course had pursued was probably justifiable under the circs stances. The government had sustained the honor i the rights of the oountry, and exhibited great abii and atatemanahlp in the management of the war Whatever taxes might be imposed, whether dirsot indirect, would receive his approbation.
