Th* Electric Talegraph. We received over the wires, la?t night, our usual summary of passing events at Washington, Aibany, and elsewhere ; but apart from the pro. ceedings in Congress and the Legislature, and transactions in th? markets in the different commercial cities, nothing further came to hand. In the Senate, Mr. Baldwin, of Connecticut, submitted a series of resolutions, having for their object the settlement of the claims of American citizens against Mexico, and to have the je/enues, itc , collected in that country, appro printed to that purpose. The ten regiment bill underwent another silting, Mr. Greene taking the matter in hand; after which, there was a bill paused allowing Mr. Black, late Charge des Affaires at the city of Mexico, the amount of a claim iaid by him against the government, for i services rendered; and then the Senate adjourn- i ed to Monday next, la the House of Represen- I tatives, .the day was principally occupied with | the considerction of the bill for the relief of the heirs of Paul Jones, which was finally passed; aud the House aleo adjourned over to Monday next. From Albany, we learn that Governor Young has signed the Manufacturing Bill. In the Legislature, both branches were busy, hammering away all day on a variety ol subjects; but on examination of their labors, we find nothing that will add lustre to their reputation as law makers and repairers. "The Presidential K lection?Fate of Mexico. We are in the midst of an important revolution in this republic?a peaceful, quiet, goodhumored, eloquent, constitutional, political revolution?a revolution that will develope itfell in meetings and conventions up to next November, when a decision will be made by >he votes of f >ur millions of people, at the ballot box, thereby determining who shall be President tor the next four years, and what shall be done with Mexico. The President who is to be elected, will be our king, our emperor, our czir, our sultan, only tor four years; but, during that space ol time, he will possess a power greater than that of any single sovereign in Europe?a power to expend and give away nearly one hundred and fifty millions oi dollars, in various ways. Of course, such a contest, or peaceful revolution, involves great excite ment; but it is a natural aud constitutional xcitement, and nothing like the bloody revoution9 in the old world. In fact, it is mere fun. Two important points will be determined by this election?"what is to be done with Mexico!" is one ; and "who is to be our President!" is the other. According to all appearances, the question of tue annexation of the whole of Mexico will becom?* prominent befora three months are over. The annexation of the whole of that country will be put in issue by the administration, or democratic party, when they put forward their candidate; for that seems to be the only issue of great importance which can arise in the coming - >u?*et. With regard to the men who may be n iminated by each convention, there is great < 'ut>t. The whigs seem to adhere to Mr. Clay, and at this moment the chances are decidedly in his favor. Yet Gen. Taylor may become prominent, and may run independently. This will disturb ttie movemeuts of the other great parties, and more especially injure the whigs The candidate of tlie democratic, or administration, party, is eoen more uncertain than is that of the whigs. The probability seems to be increasing in favor ?' u rttn ?i a f ' r? r? M r I'/xllr nnrl rnnninrr li im - .v? "IS ? ?'")

While ttKse ini[?o- int movements, meetings and conventions, ej itir.g on the public mind in reference to the nc\* presidency, are going on Hinong the people, both houses of Congress are b sy, legislating in public, and intriguing in private, for the same objects.

L?n Prohahla NtpUaUon. There is s great deal said about the government loan?about the national debt?the stringency of the money market, and various collateral topics, ia Washington, New York, and elsewhere. Rumors are circulated day after day, sometimes that Mr. Walker is willing to modily the sub-treasury system, provided the banks will take the loan. ThiR is followed up by another, that Mr. Belmont, the agent of the Rothschilds in New York, will probably take the whole loan ; aud others assert that the Emperor of Russia has also turned financier, and is willing to take a slice. These rumors about Rothschilds and Russia are undoubtedly the idle talk of the day. The Washington Union, the organ of the government, has contradicted the first?the last is too absurd to believe or repeat. During the pendency of the last loan, when every body was wondering who would take it, one of these financiers in wan street, who nave since iauca, ana cannot pay 20 cents in the dollar, thrust his hands into his empty breeches' pocket, and sagely remarked " I'll take the loan?the government need not despair?I'll take it " " Yes," some one replied, "110 doubt you will take it?you'll take anything you can get, but who the devil is fool enough to give it to you." Probably many of these loantakers are like this broken financier. Yet there seems to be a great deal of confusion, both in Wall street and in Washington, about the loan?about the debt of the United States? about the probability of negotiation, and about everything else connected with the financial action ol the American government. Some members of Congress seem anxious to represent that the Mexican war will entail adebt of $100,000,000 in less than a year, on the finaaces and revenues of this country, and are ready to cry out b&ukruptcy of the government and destruction to ita credit?others think the increase of the debt will help the manufacturing system, and cause an increase of the tariff laws. There is one view, however, of the present financial system of the government, in its connection with and relation to similar positions of the governmentsot Europe and capitalists, which we have very seldom s?en taken by any newspaper or statesman in this oountry. We will explain. About eight or nine years ago, before the first State repudiation took place, by Mississippi, in this country, the Rothschilds, of London and Paris, had made arrangements all over the continent, to negotiate vast amounts of American State stocks in every large capital in Europe. They engaged a very eminent financier ol this city, who was well acquainted with the German and French languages, polished in his manners, and a capable man of business, and sent him on a mission through all the principal capitals of Europe, for the purpose of preparing the way, in every mode, for the sale of American State stocks, which were to be purchased and contracted for here by them, and sent there by their agents. We have been given to understand that twenty or thirty millions of dollars, in State stocks, would have been sold in the various monpv murkptc nf Fnrnnp fhrnnoh thin nrrnnor#. ment made by the Rothschilds and their agents, on the continent; but unfortunately for this grand operation, Mississippi repudiated part of her debt, other western States followed her example, and the whole thing was blown to atoms, and never more heard of. Before that explosion, Rothschild, on London 'change, advised every one asking his advice?" invest in American stocks." During last winter, when we resided in Paris, we became acquainted with several financiers connected with the Bourse ot that great metropolis, and who associated intimately with the capitalists of Pans, London and Germany, and were acquainted with the financial operations of Europe and the United States. On several occasions, we heard it suggested that the probability was, if another revolution should take place in France, or any part of Europe, it would create a general revolution throughout the continent, and embrace in its vortex, principally,Germany, Italy, France, and England ; and in the event of such a popular outbreak, where railroads, and eteam, and all the other improvements of the aga were gradually extending, it was stated that the first shock would be against the credit of 'hose governments, by which an amount of property equal to nearly five thousand millions of dollars, being the gross amount of the respective public debts of the various States oi Europe, exclusive of Russia, would be rendered almost worthless, and those who depended on such property, would be reduced to penury and want. Now it is well known that the Rothschilds, and the Barings, and all the great capitalists of Europe, own vast amounts of public stocks of the different governments. In fact, beyond the furniture of their houses, and the small amount of gold and silver they retain for balances^ in their offices, the most of the wealth of the great financiers of the old world, consists of the public stocks oi the various governments. During a season of peace and prosperity, the interest on those stocks are regularly paid, and of course their value is kept up; but in the event of any popular disturbance, leading to a revolution in those countries, taking place, or the death of Louis Philippe, which may bring about that, we have frequently heard it suggested, that, in such case, there would be no stable government in the civilized world, on which such capitalists could rely, but those of the United States and Russia. In this view of the matter, it was supposed probable that the time would soon come when the H othschilds, the Baiings, and other great capital lets, would gradually withdraw their property in the different government funds in Europe, and endeavor to transfer it to the United States. It is even now said that Louis Philippe lias agents in this couatry investing property for him, in case his family should, after his death, be driven from the throne ot France, and we liavs heard it estimated that it is probable a million of dollars is invested in various ways, in houses and etocks, in this country, in anticipation of some outbreak in France. At that time, about a year ago, in Paris, the Mexican war was in mid-career, and it was feared that it would compromise the United S ates, either with Europe or Mexico; that we would be defeated, and therefore those reasons weie given by the capitalists of Europe for not trying to get the loans by which the war was to be carried on. The matter, however, is now changed?the war with Mexico has been successful; that country is held by the United States, and probably will be retained; the whole ot its mines will come within our sphere of action, and we would not be surprised to see an ' tire change come over the capitalists of Europe, in regard to the public stocks of this country, and that in a short time, the United States stocks would rise bevond snv th'Dg we have any conception of. It is not, therefore, a hazardous conjecture that Mr. Belinont, or eom? other reputed agent ot the Rothschilds, may, sooner or later, be directed by his principals in Europe, to negoti te some of our loans,or purchase aom* of the stocks issued by the United States government. If the British parliament should reluse to admit Jews into the House of Commons, such a fact might give edge to the motives of the great capitalists, to take a slice in A mcrican loans. That house and that time-honor* d race, is willing always to turn a penny or a million in cotton, corn, quicksilver, or old clothes, and their eyes may be directed (O the mines of Mexico and the stocks of the | 1'oited Hiatfs sooner ill in some suppose J he i <ii?tmuU<m between *t9ck? of the gcaeul vernment, and those of mere States, is well understood by the financiers of Europe, although the newspapers there confound them together, and make them the ocersion of a great deal of abuse against this country. Indeed, in the event of a revolution in Europe?in England, France, Germany, or Italy?for a revolution in any one ! of those countries would be a revolution in Europe?those classes of society, and the prin- I cipal financiers, who depend on the faith of the ' governments there, and live on the interest of their stocks, would have nothing else to look to but to the United States, for safety and protection. The sale, therefore, of vast amounts of government stocks in Europe and transfer to the United States, is highly probable during the next few years. This country is probably the most stable in its government, in its institutions, and in its trade and commerce, of any country in the civilized world. The election of our President, which would tear out the entraiU of any other country, produces nothing but a few amusing disturbances, as amerences 01 opinion, an in perieci good numor, just as it was seen at the Taylor meeting in the Bowery, the other evening. The credit of the government can't be impaired,whatever party may be in the ascendant, nor will Congress dare to do anything to sink its credit or destroy the confidence which financiers have in the integrity of its engagements. The United States are going up?up?up. Europe is going down?down ?down. Position of tub Taylor Party.?It is time for the friends of General Taylor to examine their position calmly, and see whether it would not be the best policy for them to organize an independent movement, without reference to the whig or democratic conventions at all. From the meetings already held in this State, it is very evident that General Taylor has little chance of getting the whig vote of the State of New York, in the Philadelphia convention. If there was any possibility of introducing him into the democratic convention at Baltimore, and of procuring his nomination, no doubt could exist of electing him against Mr. Clay, or any other man. The candidates of the democratic party?Mr. Polk, General Cass, Mr. Buchanan, and others? would never countenance such a thing, for they mean to keep the party together for their own purposes. It is, therefore, necessary for the friends of General Taylor to consider whether it is not time to organize themselves into an independent party, to nominate electoral tickets in every State, and get as many votes as they can the first heat, on the principle that he will beat the whole field, four or five years hence. Revolutionary Widows and Orphans.?A correspondent asks us "why it is that our representatives in Congress make prevision for the widows and orphans of those who fell fighting in Mexico, whilst the few remaining friendless orphans of our revolutionary fathers are left to the mercy of the world 1 Many of them are females in delicate health, unable to earn a support, and consequently must depend on others for their daily subsistence ; whereas, if the half-pay allowed their mothers (when living) were allowed them, it would greatly contribute to the comfort of their few remaining days." In reply, we can merely say, "the only reason why provision has not been made in this way is, that as the old proverb has it: "Eaten bread is soon iorgotten." We do not know, however, of a more appropriate time to urge this matter than the present, and we hope the subject will be laid before Congress. Canada.?Republican symptoms are increasing every day in Canada. The Canadian journals are even discussing the question of ultimate secession from Great Britain, and of annexation to the United States. Articles on this subject are admitted into the government, or conservative, journals there. Even her public men are beginning to change ground. Not long ago Sir Allan McNab was iu litis city. During his stay at the Astor House, in frequent conversation with our citizens, he freely admitted the probability of the ultimate secession of Canada from Great Britain, and its probable annexation to this country. Among many of the leaders of both parties there, the same sentiments are beginning to prevail. The new parliament in that colony will present some singular developments, before the first session will have terminated. From tub Wbst Indiks.?We have files of the Aurora dt Matanza* to the 29th ult., but find nothing in them later than received by way of Havana. We are greatly indebted to Captain Atwood, of the bark Hecla, for his attention in forwarding our p&; era with such promptness; and also to the captains of the steamers Dart and Hercules. Thi Steamer Washinoton.?This vessel will leave her dock at eight o'clock to-morrow morning, lor Europe. She is in first rate order for the voyage, and great success is anticipated by her commander.

My physicians were skilfnl and excellent men?but here their prescriptions failed About fourteen ytart since, in consequence of frequent exposure to the weather in the dischar.s of iny pastoral duties, I became subject to a severe Chrome Rheumatism, which lor year after year caused me indescribable anguish In the severe paroxysms, the skill of my physicians sometimes afforded me gceit relief; but this reilef was only temporary. Farther?in the winter of'45and'46. in consequence of preaching a great deal id my own nud various other churches in this legion, I wui attacked by the Brouchitis, which soon uccamc so .severe as to re^nre au immediate suspen.s.oii of my pastoral labors.

There has been qnlte an Improvement in prieea, compared with tbooe ruling on the l>th of January laet. This we attribute entirely to the relief In the money market, and to the greater abundanoe of oapltal aeeklng employment. We see no reason why onr really good State stooka, and thoae of the general government,ahonld range below par at any time; and those wbloh do oo now, 4. ,k.l. ?l?l 14 ?iii k. perceived that Treasury notes and government sixes of 1967, are quoted above par, and we expeet to aee those ot 1866 and 186.2, soon tn the same plaoe. Treasury notes are the favorite investment of oapitallsts, as they are available for payments due the government, are transmittable, in the shape of exohange, from one point of the oountry to another, and are convertible at any time into a funded stock, payable in 1667?a twenty year investment. The passage of the new loan bill through the lower house of Congress, will have a favorable ir.fluenoe upon the market value of Treasury notes, as there will be no more Issued than authorised by the aetof January, 1647. The new bill authorizes a stock loan at six per cent, for sixteen millions of dollars, and prohibits its negotiation uoder par. This makes the bill null and void at onoe; and unless a further Improvement is realized in the money market, or some change is made in the independent treasury aot, whiob, by all means, should be avoided, a mote liberal bill will have to be passed, or an issue of Treasury notes authorised for the full amount. We are decidedly in favor of a stock loan, and if there appeared a possibility of negotiating a six per oent government stock at par, would advocate it as strongly as possible ; but such a method, at present, is not feasible, and should, therefore, be abandoned. One of the most important features in the oreed of any political party, is the tact and judgment to never propose any measure not at the time feasible, however much it may agree with its principles, as a measure may at one time break down a party, and at another time give it strength and solidity. The wblg party Is opposed to the Independent Treasury system, and for the pnrpose of breaking down that eystem,orto embarrass the government in its finances so that it will recommend a modification of that aot, the leeue of treasury notes is prohibited, and the government compelled to mske a stock loan at par, or go without the necessary funds to carry on the war. At any other time, this party would flood the oountry with paper Issues; and its oourse lately has been in direct opposition to its well known principles, solely for the purpose, as it appears to us, of giving the Exeouttvo and the Seoretary of the Treasury as much trouble as possible. It may be very well, as a party movement; it may be that the chairman of the Committee of Ways end Means, and his folk) were.may sucoeed in accomplishI log the object they have in view, but it Is our impression that the effect will be more disastrous to the opposition party than its leaders Imagine. They are like the dog In the manger?they cannot do anything themselves, and they are disposed to prevent any one else doing anything. It is so inconsistent for a party so notorious for its paper money principles as that in power in the lower house of Congress, to refnse authorizing an issue of treasury notes, te enable the government to carry on its financial operations sucoessfuily. It is sufficiently well known that the government is decidedly opposed to paper money, in any shape, and particularly opposed to the treasury department becoming a department of issue; hut in time 01 war, measures must be adopted calculated to meet existing exigencies, ..nd some sacrifice must be made to party principles. This the administration bare done; and In doing so, the principal object has bieu eoonomy of expenditure. On the other band, the opposition party has sacrificed its principles for the purpose cf embarrassing the government as much as pcssible in all its disbnrsemsnta on account of the war it is a deipercte game they are playing, but Ihe motive is so palpable that it can be easily fixed upon the right shoulders. There is no donbt but that this loan bill will pass ths Senate at onoe, rsosira the signature of the President, and become a law. In accordance with its provisions the Secretary of the Treaanry will l.'sue proposals for bids, and a few weeks will settle the question. As the loan must be mads at par or abovs, no bids will of oourse be msde below, and the Secretary of the Treasury will soon know what proepsct there is of encores. Should Kuropean capitalists view the terms of this loan In n fa vorable light, it is not improbable but that bids may be received from the other side, and we lo?k upon tliij as the only chance of its being taken at par The statements made relative to the Rothschilds, are something more than mere rumors, as the circumstances connected with the financial operations of that house in Mexico are sueb as to make It a very great inducement to take the whole or that part of this loan which would be required within the limits of Mexico Other European capitalists may become large purchasers of Uaited States stocks from ssoond hands, and our capitalists r-Iisvrd In this way of muoh of the burden; but the Rothsobilds must come in as bidders for the loan, if thry wish to make their funds in Mexico available tor th? purpose of payment. Ro long as we ret.! in possession of that coantry, so long will Ihe restrictions continue upon the eiportatlon of specie, and so long will the funds o the Messrs Rothschild, or any other house, bo snbjeot o the payment of the duly fixsd by the Secretary of the I Treasury. It therefore appears that the only way for that house to make their Mexican funds available, to Inks tbs lean of tbs Uaited Slates, authorised by tba bill (totally passed and If Wet did art wish to hold ? whot# o? mj part m it ewsbasM* could b* oasWy
