Our demarche* from Washington inform us I that the Executive session of the Senate roae at eight o'clock last evening, without the final vote upon the treaty beine taken. The Question mav be decided to-day. The pervading desire for peace, or rather the wiah to avoid the direct responsibility of continuing the war, has subdued much of the hostility lately existing against the treaty, and it will doubtless be confirmed, in its modified form, by a triumphant majority. The five million loan has been taken, princi* pally by Messrs. Corcoran k. Rigge, the govern* ment brokers, at one per cent and twenty-six hundredths. The bids amounted to seventeen millions. This affords a gratifying indication of the good credit of the government, and of iu power to raise the "sinews of war," to almost any extent, and that, too, from among our own citizens. Congress was engaged in the transaction of its ordinary amount of business. In the Senate, , a rather curious petition, considering the quarter from which it sprung, was presented by Mr. | Webs'er. It was from citizens of Virginia, and prayed that the proceeds of the sales of the public lands fhculd be devoted to the extinguishment of slavery iu the Southtvu States. The House passed the bill supply ing deficiencies in the ap. propriations, by a decided vote. The legislative summary, markets, &c , &c., will be found under the proper head. The TrUt Treaty. The revelations coming out every day, in reference to the proposed treaty with Mexico, cowbefore the Senate, arc very remarkable and curious, and certainly lead every reasonab'e i person to believe that such a treaty could ne- j ver be sanctioned or confirmed by an Ameri- 1 can Senate, if it possessed any adequate moral 1 courage to n.eet it. According to certain accounts, Mr. Webster 1 and Mr. Benton, the two great leaders of the whig and democratic parties in the Senate, each , with a tail of right or nine joints, called also members, partaking respectively of the same opinions, are opposed to the confirmation of this treaty, with all its monstrous and unheard of provisions and purpo.-ea. In fact, we doubt whether the treaty can be confirmed at all, unless n dc so moainea and cu&nged us to endanger its reception and confirmation by Mexioo. But it i* of no use to trouble ourselves about Mexico, either in war or diplomacy. To make Mexico keep the peace, it is necesa*ry either to lick her or to pay her. So long as there ie a chance of the United States government throwing away twenty millions upon any government of Mexico wh ch will agree to make a treaty with us, we doubt not we shall enjoy peace and quietness from that quarter as long as the payments continue 10 be made. Lec the payment of the instalments be prolonged for a year or two, and Mexico, or any government in Mexico, will reman at peace so long as they have money to receive. There is nothing like licking or paying them, to make them keep a peace. As retards the treaty itself, it is a monster and an abommatu n, from beginning to end, and many of its provisions are altogether intolerable, and impossible to beaccepted. Yet there is no moral coursge, as it appears, in either of the two ptrties, or in the Executive, to reject this treaty? to throw it out of the Senate?or to take the responsibility of its rejection. An atiempt to patch up any thing out of it, or probably to send commint oners to Mexico, will merely be a waste of more tun'>, more money, and more absurdity, upon that ridiculous people. Vet it will probably be done, and then each faction?whig and democratic?will charge other with the wron? and folly. Really, really, the position assumed by Mr. Webfcter and some of the whigp, looks as it they were changinz sid> s with Mr. Polk and his cabinet on this seli-spine Mexican war?as if they wanted the war to continue; while Mr. Polk wished to close it?as if they looked to absorp tion of the whole, and not a part.

HKS FOR YUCATAN CajilUn S A Wait, oi the bri* Mary Ann, leaves this morn ing, in hie vessel for .SiEal, Yucatan. Captain W has been appointed bearer of despatches I rum Washington to the Government of Yucatan ' JL..I* '-'1 - 1 I- J" !!M -1! ' -U Di?ttumrv& Oonscft cr a tyrant* p-?Fb I itual or Jora Qcikct Asaju.- We made exI t?DtiT? arr mgements to gtT* a full and accurate I report of the imposing ceremonies attending tba funeral procession of tlie Hon. John Qaincy Aditme, yesterday, in this city, from beginning to end?and in accordance therewith, stationed one rf our reporters in the City Hall, for the purpose of reporting the concluding portion of the ni-laucholy pageant, with the prayer and benediction. After the corpse of the illustrious deceased arrived in Pitu H-ill nnr wnnrur (Applied for admittance into the Governor's room, where the religious services were to be performed; but he was politely but sternly refused admittance by the officer in attendance. After presenting the ticket which he whs favored with, in the early part of the i day, by Alderman Kelly, and representing tiimselt as a member of the press, the officer informed him that, in refusing him admittance, he was only fulfilling the directions given him by the chairman of the committee of arrangement, and those directions were, that none except the committee, kc.?not even the members of the press?were to be admitted. Now, we suppose the public would really like to know who the chairman of the committee of arrangements is, that made thia impudent rale; and j accordingly, we learn that hia veritable name ia Alderman Maynard. In giving an account of thia proeeaaion, we did it for'the public at large?for the people of the United Statea; and it ia really too bad, that in consequence of the ignorance and stupidity of a contemptible politician, who perhaps sought to mike capital by his ofticiousnesa in the funeral ceremonies of a great man, that the people are deprived of an account of the last ceremoniea of this mournful occasion. The press could, if it deaired, crush this man, whoever he is, aa the pedestrian crushes the worm which he inadvertently treads upon in his path. Remember, that the chairman of the committee of arrangements, who gave such direction, was named Alderman Maynard?nothing but Maynard. Mission to Rohk ?It is a singular coincidence, that at one aad the same moment, the American Congress and the English Parliament are deliberating upon the propriety of a mission to Rome, and of sending a minister to the Pope. In England, diplomatic relations between that country and Rome, were severed by the Refor mauon, ana nave not beeu renewed, or attempted to be renewed, until recently. It appears that the iniorm&l mission of Lord Minto has not been without its effects. The rescript of the "Propaganda," sent to restrain the political violence of the Irish priesthood, is attributed to the negotialion of Lord Minto with his Holiness. The Bri* tiah government also supports the reform tendeni cies of Rome, and other liberal governments and ' sovereigns of Italy. In the United States Congress, a similar opposition has been given to the proposed mission as in the British Parliament, springing out of an attempt to revive the fanaticism of the 16th century, and to make it palatable to the liberal opinions of the 19ih. We trust the attempt will fail in both bodies. We hope our Congress will act as becomes men and Americans?members of a great republic?and will institute a mission to the Pope, without reference to religious feelings or pre: judices of any kind. There are in this country almost a million and a half of Catholics, guided and directed by nearly one thousand bishops and priests; and we venture to say, with lew exceptions, (and those principally in our neighborhood and in this part of the country,) that the Catholic clergy and laity of the United States constitute one of the most loyal, true and Bteady i portions of the friends of the institutions and , constitution of the country. A minister from | the United States republic to the Vatican should I be instituted at once, and would produce its naj tural effects, which would be beneficial to the ! iiberal progress ?if the npe. , Additional from Yucatan.?By the arrival of I the bark Wave, Captain Fe nsley from Sisal, we ' are in receipt of Merida papers to the 15th ult. This is not so late as has been received via New | Orleans: but all the previous accounts of the atrocities now being committed by the Indians in Yucatan are fully confirmed. The state of Yucatan u, indeed, in a moat | dreadful condition; nearly one-third of the cultivated portiona of its territory has been overrun and destroyed by the Indians; altogether nearly sixty towns and villages have been laid waste. These incursions of the Indians are c inducted in the most cruel manner?they spare noither age nor Bex; all the white males are im, mediately despatched, and the most revolting | cruelties practised on the females. They raze to ! the ground every place they take, not leaving one stone upon another?even killing the domestic animals. Tiie arrival of the Spanish brig of war at Sisal, in the beginning of Februry, with arms and ammunition from the Spanish government, will, doubtless, be of some assistance to the YuCitpooe. The Governor of the State, Don Santiago Meruitz, issued an urgent proclamation on the 10;h ult., calling on the inhabitants, both young and old, to endeavor to use evsry possible means to put these most remorseless and savage Indians down. | We sincerely trust that the late appeal to th American government for aid and assistance, | will not pass unheeded; for if ever country { etood in the utmost need of help and assistance from her more powerful neighbors, most certainly Yucatan does at this present moment. Insubordination of the Coolies?Intelligence from the British West Indies ?The IVett Indian, to the 31st January, published at Barbadoes, has been received. The reduced rates of labor, adopted a few J months since through some of the West India Islands, appear to have met with little or no ap1 probation. The greatest discontent prevail, and in many plantations scenes of outrage have been perpetrated. At Grenada, and at Demerarp, th^laborers have not only struck work, but have prflfceeded to acts of insubordination and vio. lence which were deemed sufficient to warrant theaidof military. At Georgetown, on the 21st, considerable excitement prevailed. Several acte of incendiarism had been perpetrated, Rnd a proclamation had been published by the Governor, offering a reward for the conviction of the guilty : parties, and counselling the laborers to be order| ly, snd cr ntented with the proposed reduction of i their wages. The IVett Imiian of the 13th of January soys : | "We look to lbs appreachlng meeting of the Assembly with considerable society, whtob li participated, we be! lieve, by almost every member of the community, in 1 fery rank os l 'e The la which the inland, la o ramoo with the sister colonies, I* placed? th? paralysis ol indastry?the refusal of the bank to dii;nnut-th? inability of tbe planters to obtain specie to culiivate their estates?and the stagnation of trade,render the meeting of tbe Legislature, at this juncture, most important.'' \ *ry Latk from Montktideo.? we are md-b'.ed to Capt.

The Senate ia in Executive 9esaion on the treaty. Before closing the doors, a very large quorum of Senators were present, and several were talking with Mr. Webster. The Chairman on Foreign Relations had a triumphant look upon him, as if the case were settled ; Mr. Clayton looked somewhat melancholy ; Mr. Webster gloomy and dark ; Gen nuusiuii auafm?even nis Mexican Dianicet was not in bis chair this morning ; Mr. Allen appeared to be savage. Mr. Honnegan will go the treaty. We expect the case to be closed to-day; perhaps within a few houra; perhaps not till a late hour at night. The old whigs, such as Clayton and Mangum, are indignant at the course of Mr. Gales in coercing them, by means of extracts from the public press, to the support of the treaty; and the radical democrats are equally displeased with Father Kitchie, for presuming to whip them in; but there is no help for them; they must go it; or hazard the chances of re-op*ning the warthere is the rub. The President has the case in his command, and Father Ritchie speaks in this matter as faithfully as an echo. The day is delicious, and a host of Tisiters are at the capitol, awaiting the great issue. Mr. Dickinson will go for the treaty, if we are not mistaken. Mr. Dix is, of course, for it. The Wilmot proviso will be ruled inadmissible. 86 SO is talked of west of the Rio Grande More anon. W. DISPATCH NO. it. Washington, March 8,1848?P. M.

Washington, March 8, 5 o'clock, P. M. The Senate flag is flying in a high wind?the treaty is hanging, like Mahomet's coffin, by an invisible power. There will be a late session tonight?probably as late as twelve o'clock. To finish the work, another day may be required ; but it is expected the job will be concluded today. Religious privileges and monopolies, the boundary, slavery, British Interest, British agencies, and the bastard character of the treaty, are the obstacles discussed ; but the great and paramount object of peace overrides them all. W.3 dispatch no. iv. Washington, March 8?9 P. M. Ths Senate concluded their secret session at 8 o'clock, and immediately adjourned. The final vote on the treaty had not been taken up to that hour, nor had any material change occurred since the day before. The discussion was animated on both sides. THe Five Million Loan Taken Washington, March 8?6 P. M. The five million loan has been taken. Over four millions of it were taken by Messrs. Corcoran & Riggs, at one per cent and twenty-six hundredths. The balance was taken at rates varying from one and three-eighths to two per cent. The whole amount of bids was seventeen millions. From tile South. Augusta, Ga., March 8, 1848. The overland express has arrived at this place from New Orleans, with papers to the 2nd inst. They contain no news. Oread fa I Accident at Baltimore. , Baltimore, March 8?5 P. M.. A dreadful accident occurred here this afternoon. A brick wall on South Charles street fell with a loud crash, burying four unfortunate laborers and a horse in the ruins. All were dreadfully mangled, their limbs broken, and their flesh bruised. They were extricated as soon as possible. Their groans were most painful. The names of three of them are Hfnry Develin, Patrick Quia and John Donohan The name of the other is unknown. Two of them can scarcely survive ; the others will, perhaps, recover, but must always bear the tokens of serious injuries. Naval Affairs?Sailing of Commissioner Davis. Baltimore, March 8?8 P. M. The frigate Columbus lies in Hampton Roads, waiting for the tide, in order to sail. The Plymouth sailed this morning from Norfolk for China, having on board Mr. Commisbioner Davis end suite. Vila Wea'her. Albany, March 8, 1849. We are now in the enjoyment of lovely, mild spring weather; and we expect, in a short time, 'should the sun continue in his present melting mood, to cast off the hoary habiliments of Jack Frost, and dash out anew in all the variegated attire of gaudy youth. Truly, the past has been a mild winter. TH1RTUCTH CONUEKSI. first session. WAfHittoToiT, March 8, 1848.

OmoKOf gkm ? lh? urt and abuss f'this i?wm. tui anodyne it uow a subject oi much conversation in all circles. Many view it only as an agent wherewith to neutralize the sense of pain; and never atop to ask whether it leaves any aft?r effects, or if there is any risk run in its use. Yet the tragical results which are daily occurring from a reckless application of it, ought to create a forcible impression on the mind of any reflecting person, that its indiscriminate use is hazardous, and often attended with evil consequences, especially in impairing the faculties of the mind. Chloroform appears to be an improved, or rather more powerful substitute for ether, whose anodyne quality, in its full extent, was first discovered by the late Dr. Wells, who was awarded a premium of 25,000 francs for the invention by the French Institute. From the investigation which was made at the time of this gentleman'* suicide, it appeared that he was constantly in the habit of resorting to the use of ether, at first, and subsequently chloroform, as a remedy for low spirits. It is easy to imagine that such a habit would lead to mental stupefaction, or derangement, just as much as the immoderate use of ardent spirits or opium; and as it is a law of nature, that after great excitement there is r1ways a proportionate re-action, this unfortunate custom disorganized his nervous system, and finally his mental powers. We have heard the sensation felt,while under the influence of ether, while extracting a tooth, described by a person wno experienced it, as being most horrible, being perfectly conscious of every thing that wrs going on, but unable to speak or move; and he compared the feeling which pervaded his system to that we feel when the foot is asleep, and that he experienced a sensation of exhaustion tor several weeks afterwards. This shows that it requires a sound constitution to bear up against the effects of these powerful agents, which is corroborated by the recent inquests in this city and in Cincinnati, upon eases of death by the administration of chloroform. There is no reason to doubt that this is an important discovery towards alleviating human misery in desperate surgical cases; but it should be used with extreme caution and judgment. The indiscriminate sale of this article in every drug store, like any other simple drug or medicine, is highly improper. We know of instances where it is largely used by persons engaged in sedentary occupations, merely for the purposes of exhiliration, without weighing the evil consequences of such a habit. A popular mania for its use may be attended with the most dangerous results, and lead to the commission of numberless suicides, like the mania which existed in Paris at one time for suicides, throwing themselves into the Seine, and the modes of suicide which, at another time, were fashionable in London, by throwing themselves from the top of the monument, and drowning in the Serpentine. It is time that proper restrictions should be put upon the sale ot this article, and that its administration should be confined solely to medical practitioners. SloTeininU of Mr. OUjr^-lntanitlog VUlts and Receptions In tile City. In accordance with the industrious habits of Mr. City, he rose from bis couch at half-put six o'olook, yesterday morning, after a night of weloome rest; and at seven o'clock a barber attended him; after which he adjusted his toilette, and prepared for breakfast, which was in readiness at half-cast eight o'clock. Having taken hit breakfast, he retired to his private parlor, where he remained until waited on at ten o'oloek, by His Honor the Mayor, and a deputation from the Common Counoil Committee. At ten o'olook, a carriage was brought up before the private entrance to the New York Hotel, and Mr. Clay accompanied by the gentlemen above mentioned, started off for the purpose ofmakiDg some oalls. They first stopped at Julien's Hotel, in Washington Placo. where ex President Van Buren was waiting to rective them; and alter a friendly salutation, and a little chat, they repaired to the residence of Albert Uallatin Esq., No 67 Bleeoker street, where were a number o! ladies waiting to salnte the venerable statesman. Hit time, cf course, being limited, his stay was short, and after the usual ceremony, and the warm congratulationi of the ladies, he took his leave. Again taking his seat in the carriage, he was conducted to the house of his old friend, John Jacob Astor, in Broadway, near Prince street. Mr. Clay and Mr. Astoi bare long been Intimate friends, and the meeting w?? most cordial. Here also were a number of ladies, who, presstnu his.hand, bestowed upon him their most hearty wishes for long life and happiness. He unxt paid a visit to Rutgers Institute, In Madison street, wbfre he was adJressad by the Rev. Dr. Ferris. President of the Institute, and introduced to about foui bnndrrd young ladles, who gathered around the timeworn veteran, and wl'h their swuet smiles and warm congratulations drew fiom their guest a smile of pleasn< ruble approbation. He was addressed, on behalf of th? ladi?s, by Mr. West, Principal ol the institute, in a ten pertinent remarks, expressive of the greet pleasure Willi nnniiM hiH utTordad them. Mr. Clev re plied In his usual happy style. and hi* wonted eloqueno< burst forth, while speaking of the obj-cts of th? institute. and the happy demonstrations of its success. H> was happy to be thus surrounded by such a number o! 1 the fair d*ughters of tbis vreat city, whose every countenance beamed with lutellcct, and shone out the sue<TM5fnl culture cf the mind. After which, he was presented with a gold medal by the young lauk-s, a ftc simile of the mathematical medal, the highest honor 01 the institute. He next went to the bouse of Mr. Joseph Hoxie, in Madison street, and having been introduced to the family, and the large nnmber of persons who had assembled expressly to see him, he again sought a moment'c rest at his hotel , At one o'clock Mr. Clay was again waited on by hit Honor the Mayor, in ocmpany with Maior GeneraJ Gaines. who announced to him that the time for the arrival of the remains of ths late Ex-President Adams hud arrived. Mr. Clay again took his seat in the carriage and with General Gaines proceeded to the Battery, u join in the general tribute of respeat to the departs statesman, and continued with the procession until th? remains reaohed the City Hall. Hi was then so much fatigued, from the proceedings of the day, that wlthonl } waiting for the closing ceremonies, he proceeded to hi/ , hotel. i After having rested for a half hour, at half-past tli o'clock, aooompanied by the Mayor, and a deputatioi from the Common Conncil, he acoepted an invitation t? ' dine with Willis Hall, Esq , at his residence, Ms. 30; West Fourteenth street, and repaired thither, where tu s remained until ten o'clock, when hs returned to hi/ k quarters. At eleven o'clock he retired, refusing to receive an; . more oompany, in oonstquenee of being worn ont by th< labors of the any.

In his soene wltb Qoneril, where her | ingratitude wounds him to the very soul, the sentenoe " Blurts upon thee !

In fine, Booth is perfect master of ble art, and has few, if any,, equals Edgar, the assumed idiot, by Oyott, was a masterly performance The day is not far distant when this gentleman will do honor to the first walks of the drama. Tbe Earl of Kent, by Barry, was excellent Mrs Jones personated the affectionate daughter, Oordelia, with much cleverness. In fiae, all the oharaeter* were well oast and ablv sustained. Tha " M&vnr of Garrett," concluded the performance, and the au4lenoe seemed quite pleased This evening, Mr Booth appears for the Use time In Maturing tr*n<-dy of *' Bertram, or the Castle of Sc. Atdebrund," which will be followed by the burlnrque, entitled " Metamora." The eld Perk is looking Up, and if spirit and energy be brought to bear, in eeltptlrg novelty, it will long continue to be well patronised. Bowery Theatre.?Last evening, the sterling and popular oomedy of the " Rent Day," was produoed at thie proiperoui theatre, the c?et of the leading part* being-that of Martin Heywood, by Mr. Marshall; Silver Jack, by Stevens; Crumbs, by Bellamy; Raehel Heywood, by Mrs Phillips; end the other characters were judiciously distributed among this talsntod company, the entire performance being well sustained, and it was well reoelved by tbe audleaoe. This play was succeeded by the highly interesting and exciting nautical drama of " Captain Kid," or tbe " Witoh of Hell Uate." The part of Kid, by Marshall, was full of spirit and energy, end Jordan was excellent as Horsebean Hemlock, a lire Y ankee. The performance oonoluded with the Interesting drama of " Charlotte Temple," the part of Charlotte being taken by Mrs. Phillips ; Mrs Temple, by Mrs Stiekney ; and Mr. Temple, by Bellamy, with their usual style of exoellenoe. A highly attractive bill ia offered for to-morrow evening, when the grand and popular spectacle of tbe " Battle of Mexico" will be reproduced, whieh has already been crowned with signal suooess. The densely orowded houses whieh assemble in this theatre, every evei ing, prove that the excellent arrangements now existing in every departmeat of this theatre, are properly appreciated by the publio. Chatham Theatre.?There was an exoellent house at this plaoe of amusement last evening, to witness Mr. Adams's personation of Virglnius, In the tragedy of that name, and it is almost needless to say, it was ably sustained; as were also the characters of Appius Claudius, Iollius; and theugh last, not least, Virginia, by Mrs. Wilkinson, who is clever In every part she undertakea. The sailor's hornpipe, by Miss Deloraine, was neatly executed. and tbe comio song by Wlnans, as usual, met with unanimous oheers. The oonoluding pieoe, " Orlst to.the Mill," was also weU'reQeived This evening, Mr. Adams will appear In tbe beautifully drawn character of tbe 8tranger. This theatre, under the management of its present Indefatigable proprietor, is doing well, as must be tbe case with all managers who use their endeavors t) suit the tusie and feelings of the age, iu the production of legitimate pieces. and attractive sterling actors. Tbe house lies been much improved, and tbe oomfort of its patrons consulted..and hence arises its present nooess We say, go ahead sad prosper.

Ttaa nouns li well arranged for the convenience of visitera; tb?r? ia no tedious delay between the aots, bat every thing slipe off as smoothly as any one oonld desire. The various soenes, pantomimes, &o , are all of tbe flrat olass; nothing low or vulgar is admitted into the eota of the amphitheatre. We are glad to know that the house ia well patronised and that all oonoerned are earning a fair remuneration for their exertions. To-night a fine bill is to be presented, and we heartily reoommend the establishment to tbe attention of the public. To night Mr. J. Sweet takes his benefit. Christy's Minstrkls ?The Ethiopian melodies of tbe day have really taken a high stand in the musical world. When first they were introduced the groi terqueness of vhe ringer's actions, tbe broad humor of the words, and the novelty of the whole performance, gave tbem much popularity; now, however, all that is changed, and the Ethiopian songs, especially sueh as , sung by Christy's troupe, are refined in language, and In some instances even pathetic; the song of " Carry ma back to Old Virginia," tor instance, is truly a pathetio p'eca of musie ; so It is with many other of their songs; and in those in which miith predominates, the words are always of the most refined nature. The singing and dancing of this bud are likewise exoelKnt, and in fact they are in every respect, a first-rate company. They perform, as usual, every evening at Mechanics' Hall. Siiile Brothkri.?This band of minstrels bid fair to become very eminent iu their line; they have the true musical taste an i appreciation, which is so requisite for tho?e who hope to obtain tbe approbation of tne public, particularly in a place like New York, where everyone 1 has the opportunity of heating *11 that is fine iu musio. > Tbe Sable Brothers, however, are bound to make a name for themselves as true merit, suoh as they possess, will in all cases succeed. Convention Hall, in, Wooatar street, between 11; ueton nn1 Bieeck?r, where tbey give i their ooncerrs, is quite bandy'< f aco?ss, as the omnil buses pass down Bleccker street every tew minutes dur| ing the evening. < Virginia Harmonists?What with the good singing of these gentry, and the very wonderful feats of legerdemain, by that magical genius, the Fakir of Ava, an evming can be spent quite pleasantly at lb* Alhambra.
