J. hn Qutticy Adams, while in his | seut, in the House c f Representatives yesterday, j Wdo suddenly seized with an apopletic fit, and I fell to the floor. He was immediately attended :<> l>y medical gentlemen, but his life is dispairi d of. Tiiis is the second lit which this venerable gci:tletni.".i has had within a year; and at his udv . iced age, it is feared that his system is too iee'jle to bear the shock. Both houses of Congress immediately adjourned. In tlie State Legislature, little was done except | sojourning ovtr to Wednesday. " I t aly of Peace With Mexico. At length we have some authentic intelligence of the trea'y of peace with Mexico, which has I been rumored for the last few weeks. Mr. j Freaner (the celebrated Mustang), bearer of dt s , patches irom General Scott for the government at Washington, arrived on Saturday evening at the capitul, with the treaty in question. He left Vera Cruz on the 7th inst., in the steamer Iris, for Mobile, and arrived there a few days ago, Jrorn which place he travelled to Washington. He brought with him the treaty of peace, of which so much has been said, all the particulars of which, so iar as they are developed., will be found in our columns of this morning. As yet, it seems to be uncertain what the exact terrr* of th e treaty ire. There are some general stipulations known, which are important in ! themselves, and which would seem to indicate that it might be acceptable to the American government. Trie boundary of the Ilio Grande, New Mexico, and California, to be'given to the United Stales - twelve thousand American troops to remain in the c'.ty of Mcx co for a certain time. Tnese seein to be the leading provisions. Ac cording to some accounts, it seems not o be absolutely certain that this treaty has received the tanotion of the Mexican Congress, although it in jy have received the approval of the existing Mexican government. There teems to be yet some uncertainty whether more stf-ps in the negotiation?the appointment of commissioners, and other matters?liny not be necessary, before it acquires a shape sufficiently matured to be presented by Mr. Polk to the Senate. At ail event*, this treaty, the manner in which it been negotiated, the negotiators in Mexico, the position of nffiirs in this country, the excilemet!'. in Washington, the presidential election, will all tend to fix public attention, and to produce Mran e scenes nd sirange results, both in the White House and in the Senate chamber. What Mr. T? Ik wj!1 do, what his cabinet will n-lvis-, what tiie leadintr administration Senators miy determine, are questions of deep interest, and will It ad to great results. A certain portion ot the administration ranks?the 54 40 section? . \\t... \ : 11 i. i . _ ji? i _ _ _ ? ^ _ .11 yw ue.uu^iou, wiu ii:iuourucuiy ne opposed 10 treaty, and particularly to a treaty founded on principles which huve been attributed to the one ui question, and negotiated l>y General Scott. It m certain, however, that if a treaty of thv. kind sh uld b** presented to the Senate, it > II lie supported by a majority of that body. It has first, however, to pms the ordeal of the executive department, an J receive the assent of the nv';nb?rs of the cabinet. Will Buchanan and Walker support it? Such is the interesting position of this affair? iull of excitement, hope, fears, and all sorts of feelings and purposes. This movement presents Gen ere. I Scott in a new and important light, end it will bring up before the country the whole of the : >c tit proceeding about courts ui inquiry :ind courts martial.

The intclli ,euc? of the treaty of peace from Mexico, which we received by telegraphic ex- I press yesterday, and announced to the public, 1 together with the particulars now published, will place this distinguished military coinman- j der in anew position before the American j*ople. li" it be true that he has taken the responsibility of receiving a treaty of peace, and sending it on to his own government, then lie hus, in iactt taken the responsibility of getting our imbecile President out of a dilemma which he himself was incapable of doing for his own safety. We tnay be, as many others are, in favor ot annexation, of absorption, of swallowiug up all Mexico ?or ]>erhaps it wouii^he better tor our constitution and our ap.ietile, us well as our powers of digestion, to eat up Mexico as the Romans did Carthage?bit by bit, a large slice after a large slice? i n ur?>twl fl'.VM I! nw i n jr ! h#? wltnlp r#?nuhlir? u<i tlif anaconda does the buffalo?head, horns, shoultier*, und all, at once. If the intelligence we have received be correct in giving the provisions of ths treaty, we have already ceded to us one-:liird of the republic of Mexico. We may st.:y contented with this for the next twenty-live year#, and gradually steal away the remainder, at the first ooportunity ; for it is evident we must eventually have the whole country, up to the Isthmus of Teliuant<pec, in process of time. If this treaty should be received by the Presi dent, sent to the Senate, carried in that body, and bucome a law, who will have the honor and reputation of having achieved the great and important work 1 General Scott. In spite ol his " hasty plate of soup," and his rather indiscreet doings in relation to the purchase ot grain, buying oi horses, and other little charges, he is the man who will, in a great measure, be entitled to the merit of the deed. During the last few weeks, some singular movements have been made by the government towards this distinguished General. It was said? and we have not seen it contradicted?that he had been suspended, and ordered to a trial at jtciuic. Aim wimi iorf iviainty, it was Deuevea, on account of his dispute with some officers under his command, whom rumor assigns as members of a party favoring the administration. The severity of the conduct pursued towards him by the administration, appeared tq us unjust. We think, indeed, that General Scott hue been imprudent?there can hardly be a question as to that?in not controlling his spleen and vexation at the arrogance of his junior officers, putting themselves above him, and claiming "all the honors," instead of him. We say it was a pity that General Scott did not pocket all such affronts and indignities. Again, it was an indignity?we may say a gross insult?when his inferior officer penned a volume of vituperating charges against the General in Chief, and sent them to the General in Chief himself, to request that he himself should forward thtee pitiful charges against himself on to Washington. Pity that the sensitive Virginian?the hero ot Vera Cruz, of Cerro Gordo, Churubusco, and Montezuma?suffered his vexation to burst out and show itself, by putting his contumacious officers under arrest. But, after all, in this hasty and too sensitive conduct of the gallant general, we saw nothing more than imprudence, and the unguarded ebullition ot wounded personal vanity. For this imprudence, if report be true, he has been severely punished?we may add unjustly. He has been suspended from his high command. That was severe enough. His inferior officers, his accusers, have been discharged from the tffVct of his accusation*. That was severer still. Their accusations, on the other hand, have been received ugainst him, and he is to be tried on the charges of the very men whom he had put under arrest. That was severe iu the superlative. They .ire supposed to be innocent, and he is supposed to be guilty, by the War Department. This seems to us rather unjust. Its future effects may be fatal; for what discipline can ever be hoped for in our army, if the commander in-chief is made to appear before his troops such an impotent tool that he dare not punish a subaltern without being immediately suspended and put on trial tor so doing, and finding that s line subaltern liberntt d and set up as an accuser against him! Is the War Department mad 1 Has Mr. Pnlk heen talcintr clilnrnfnrm In (altf such te?ei>3 acaiiijst ono of the moat distinguished generals of America?one of the most heroic conquerors of modern times'? Now, then, Gene^ ral Scott, in mhking this peace, in putting an end to this war, you have punished the President for his severity to you in the sevrrest and most cutting m anner. This you have done by blessing him in return for cursing y.ou; by rescuing him out of bis troubles, in return for his bringing you into trouble; and by bringing honor upon him 111 return for his effort to disgrace you. 'JREAT MEN JOINING THE 1AYLOR UAUSS? Within it few day?, several great men, of great political standing, and of different parties, have announced theij preference for General Taylor us their candidate for the presidency. We may enumerate the Hon. John Sergeant, Hon. Joseph R. Ingersoli, Hon. Win. C. Rives, Hon. Garn<*it Duncan,Hon. Andrew Stewart,of Pa., and though lust, uot leas:, Col. Van NesB, of New York? All these gentlemen have come out flat-footed lor General Taylor. Tkey have held high and responsible situations, and their influence cannot but exert great weight in favor ef the hero of 13u?na Vista. Some of them support him as a whig, and others ns a no pirtytnan. Col. Van Ness supports him on the latter ground, and h>s remirks on this respect are worthy of deep consideration. We extract the following from his letter to the public, upon political parties, caucuses, nnd convention?, and the next presidential election:? He i? tbe man.above *11 others. upon whom the peolle can unit*. regardless of old pa'ty prejidices, and, at tbf ho? tlme.wi bout an; sacrifice or principle. or even of pride Hehasnevr been id-niified wltb party contests and, iud?<d, knows no party but the people at large.

If we have strayed from the right course, it is time that we retraced out steps, and repaired the wrong. From tnis valuable accesion of strength nnd influence, it would appear that the Taylor cause ;s gaining ground rapidly in different parts of the country.

Chatham Thkathe.?There was quite a good house at this theatre, las; night. The entertainments commenced with the admired comedy of the ''Heir at Law," ia which Mr. Winans took the part of Zekiel Homespun, a lad recently from the country introduced into London, lor the purpose of obtaining a place for his sister Cecily, which was sustained by Mrs. Wilkinson, who appears as well in comedy as in drama. Mr. Her bert, as Doctor rangioss, *u remarkably sucoesslul, and Mr. HleldasDlok Dowlas, more thin eclipsed any former effort. The " Model Artistes " next came on, and were well received. The thrilling dramaef the "Whistler. or, The Lilly of St. Leonards," concluded the performance. The character of the Whistler was sus'alnel by Miss S. Deniu. and that of David Butler by Miss K. Dcnin, both of whom hie most happy in all their characters They are great favorites, and are always leotived with pleasure by the audience. Mr. Wlaans us Dishy Dutton, was received with great applause. Mrs Wilkinson as Lady 8 tan ton, was perfectly at home, and in this character of the drama, she was most heppy.? Mra.

Phonography ?There is a great effort making in certain quarters to cry up phonography, as h system of short-hand reporting, and the most flittering inducements are held out to learners. Now we apprehend thut reporting does not d?pend on phonogrtiphy or stenography, hut more on the intellect. It is quite immaterial by what system a reporter takes notes ; hut to be a reporter he must have an intellect capable of comprehending, grasping, and ifnecetsary, condensing, the arguments or speech, as the case may be. A tliousand persons inay learn either phonography, or stenography; but not more than tei> of the number will be good repoitera. It does not follow that if a man learn hhort-hand, that he will is a consequence, be a reporter. The Telegraphic Operator*. Ma F.ditob : ?

United Statks Bank R^soWed, That t'n? directors be requested to pronure from the assignees i f the three trusts a statement, as mnohln detail as in proper and practicable, of the remaining aseet< which passed by the said several assgnm*nfs. ?nd report the limn to the adjourned meeting-the objeot of th* stockholders bMng to obtain all practicable information to guide them lu estimating the value of their steck. Resolved. That the president and directors be directed to give publio noting, as required by the constitution and laws of Pennsylvania, of an application to the Legislature, far eurh ?ni?ndra*nts to the charter ns will relieve th? bank of all further liability for the bonus and subscriptions to stocks or other liabilities imposed by th* charter. R .'solved. That th" committee to be appointed under th? last resolution, have power to add to their number* from other stockholders, at their discretion. Resolved. That the committee have power to receive subscriptions to defray the expenses to be Incurred uni!tr the 4th resolution, and also of gtvin? notions to stcokhold-rs of the adjourned raveling to be held in June next, end any other incidental expenses It has been reported that there is a movement going on to galvanise this institution; but we sea nothing la the above resolutions showing anything of that nature . It is an Impossibility to revive that concern ; it la completely defunct, and all the stockholders will ever receive from the Investment, will be realised from the liquidation of the affairs of the bank. It is very important that the expenses of the loetitutlon should be reduced as much as possible, that the assets may be made available as soou as possible, and to as gre&t an extent as possible.? The objeotof the recent meeting was to take proper steps to close up thi second and third trusts as early as practicable The trustees have for a long tims delayed dIvid<*ndsof the assets they have in band,and the etoskholders are anxious that they should be divided, and the extent of the o'.aicas not liquidated by these assets made known It Is the gen?ral Impression that the funds in the bands of the trustees of these trust r are sufficient to pay off all the olalms agaiust them The cash assets in their hands amount to about $600 000, whiob, with % Urge amount of valuable real estate in the oity ot Philadelphia, and a large amount ol dividend paying stocks which may be converted into cash, are estimated at taors than sufficient to pay < ff the deposits arid circulation of the bank The stockholders believe that by the election of a board of directors wholly unconnected with the 'rustees, or with ary Interest which hse managed the <ff-?irs of the bank for several years past, the assets of this institution will be xnnoh more productive, and the olalms liquidated much sroner, and therefore much more to the satlifiction of the creditors. The heavy expense -tow annually p.iid to trustees and counsel would be stop, ped.and the Inter, stsof all having claim*,sitter as stockholders, bill holders, depositors, and in any other way, wonld be b- tter protected. Th? trus'ces, of course, ara opposed to any immedUte liquidation cf the affairs of this bank; it is toe th?ir interest to lengthnn out this bull iness a* long as pos?ible, for the purpose of holding onto thier f?t salaries and they will not consent to any compromise, and will prevent one if they can. There is me fact oonn?ot?d with thesn movements whleh ia not generally known here It appears that aq extensive European banking house has purchased, within the past year, several thousand shares of this stock, and is now the bolder of about one third of the capital stoek. This house is a large creditor of the bank, and also a large stockholder o that it is in a safe position for one or the other of Hs oUims, and perhaps from both.
