Congrei>_WI>at Should be Done, Now that the Mexican war has been terminated, Congress should at onca go to work and finit-h the imm?nsem iss of public business which has been delayed for y*ars, in consequence partly of the brilliant episode which haw just been closed by the treaty of peace. Possibly it may be as well, also, to p?s* the ten reginieit bill, in order to t-how the Mexican Congress and people that we are in earnest in this country. But the action ofCougress ought to'be particularly directed to the quick and rapid finishing i up of the old busiuess lelt on hand, that ih.'y may afterward proceed in good earnest to lcgii;at--, by making wise laws for the future conduct oi inis vasi ana incT'*ai i:_r renmiic. vvesta'ia now in a newposition t' e old arc] the new worlt', cover-d with honor und glory, enlarged with extensive territory, and oa'y having a deb' which we can easily wipe awe.y in the course of tenor twrlve years .Much will yt t be required to settle up the accounts of the arniv; but we thi .k that t ie mere settling of accounts, payii'2 up d fien i~s <ind baUaers, fee., n-erfnot t -ke up much time of Congv^s We should lock out for the lulure, anil m tk- arrangement* for the vtBt. ?nd increasing prospect of tli<* greatness uhich op'-ns upoa us in all quart- rThe next war will b" a naval campaign?and th it should b, prt-pared for. The termination of the war will gen-ra'.ly ple*se the country, whatever dili rence of opinion may hare existed as to its commencement and progress. Some grumblers there ytt msy be; but all things considered, it wag best to agree to the treaiy, and present to the worlJ the sublime spt-c'acle of national mipnanimity in not keeping possession of all Mexico. We have already astonished the civilized wor'd by the number of our brilliant victories; and now the magnanimity of our conduct, in giving back to Mexico her nationality, and the best part oi ner territories, win proauce me iiappiesi results upon the world at large, and entitle us to the respect ar.d admiration of Europe, for the high ton- d aud magnanimous principles which have actuated our qovernmeut. We trust, therefore, that Congress will go to work at once, and make a speedy and short session, doing the business of the country with promptness and despatch, and omitting nothing necessary to the advancement and promotion crl all tne varied interests of this vast confederacy | The Pol'cr Systkm.? We understand that the proposed amendments of the existing police system, h ive been at length consigned to the " tomb of nil ihe Capuletb" by the Board of Aldermen. It seems the new project met with general condemnation. It was charged as being merely u return to the old watch and police system of former years. Very likely. We are much disposed to b-lieve, from all we can gather and li aru, that the existing police system, with a few additional amendments, is the i ? ... l : a. _ i i i r_ _ .l:_ ?t*l ur?i wmyu c in nr ucvistra lur mis guy. i nc amendment we mean wou'd be a change of the power ot appointment from seventeen individuals to a board, one power, for the whole city. The system, as it appears upon piper, looks well; and carried out with good intentions and strict integrity, will no doubt work much better than the old system. The deficiencies of the f resent police system, however, fire r.wing mora to thu want of adminiitrvive ta!<-nti in its vnrioua H?nients, ?1j .r> any other cause During the recent funeral obsequies paid to Mr Adam?, and the triumphant reception of Mr Clay, the presi- t police system worked remarkably well, ard showed its efficiency in keeping order among the immenff crowds ?>f our denize population.

Sp'TTT *?rr? ' A<p?A tkm list nrrivftif from VeraCnu, it appears n Minor wnn curr?"it thfte ilut S mu Anua had applied to Irrneral Scott lor a passport to Irave Mexico, ind tlint his application had been successful. We t!u:ik ihis news ;tp >cry phal, and will turn ut to b<? u'.iioundid: judging from his gener<l ;l?ur.:ctfr, h.s position in the country, and the st> te of pirti^s there, we are of opinion it it-f neither his purpose nor his interest to leave Mexico ut ih's particular juncture. Moreover, w e find, by tue papers which brought this account, that lie will not be allowed to land at Havana Should this last rumor be true, the only othi-r places to which he would be 1,1,?!.. .? u: i J u. n iu oirci iiir? L'ourar, wuuiu uc iu nauw wi England; but from his opposition to the views of the rulers of thess countries, in regard to the establishment of a monarchy In Mexico, he could not, with any degree of certainty, calcu- , lute upon meeting with a cordial reception from : those governments; and even if he were cer- J tain of beins well received, Paris and Loudon bfing beyond convenient intriguing distance, it is not ,>robal>le he would remove to either of those capitals; and his going to any of the southern republics, in the present state of afFairs, is out of the question. The principle ground, however, upon which we doubt the accuracy of the rumor is this : General Scott had no authority to treat with him on any other terms than as a prisoner of war. No doubt he had an implied authority (as all commanders have) to negotiate with an enemy ; but would he exercise Buch a power on his own responsibility, knowing aa he did the outcry that was raised against the government, and the odium they incurred by allowing Santa Anna to land at Vera Cruz after the fall of Parades! We think not. General Scott is too good a general. But in addition?suppose the report " that he would not be permitted to land at Havana," turned out to be false, and that he hnd received a paspport and took up his residence there. Can any one doubt but a system of intrigue would be' immediately commenced, and in 1? as than three months alter our forces were withdrawn, he would overthrow any government that might be established in Mexico, as he did that of Paredest For these reasons, we are of opinion our commander-in-chief did not enter into any treaty with Santa Anna that would leave him open to the taunts <>f his enemies, be they whom they | niiy?whether the President and his cabinet, or auy of the cliqurs or factions that compose the j t ills of th aspirants for the next Presidency. But j if, unluckily for himself, he has committed so ; egregious an oversight, we predict that it will j stick to his skirts longer than the " hasty plate ! of soup" The next accounts from Vera Cruz, J however, will clear up all doubts on the subject, ! and wc must wait with patience until their arrival. Father Matthkw Coming Over ?In a few weeke, th * cel-brated Father Matthew, the great temoeriuiee anostle in Ti-flmiH will lunil in Koiu York on a visit to this country. He recently ad* dressed a letter to Thurlow Weed, his friend, in Albany, informing him of his intention. This letter has been published, and preparations have been making on a vast aad magnificent scale, to receive this eminent pious Catholic clergymsn and temperance lecturer. Father Matthew will be received with treme.idous applause, excitement and cordiality in this country, during the spring and summer. He litis made a happy selection of the time; for if he had postponed his visit till after the Presidential election, he would have had by no means so h-nrty u welcome as he will uow ha*e< Wl>y 1 Tit- whi<js are very anxious to get the Irith votes for their candidate st the approaching election, and the democrats are equally anxious; hence this pious Catholic temperance lecturer will be overwhelmed with c*r ssrs and attentions from both parties, though he himself will be entirely ignorant of the reasons for all this z al. When this celebrated Fattier was in London, two or three years ago, he produced not the least st-nsition. Why not 1 Because there were no Irith votes to be got at that moment in London, or throughout England! We have no doubt, therefore, that from this consideration, the leaders, both of the whigs and locofocos, will be seen running over each other's heads, and overwhelming the worthy man with ail sorts of attentions up to next No vember. After November, he may pass through the country with comfort; but not before. Fashionable Intklliobnck.?Enquiries have been made of us respecting the prospect of another grand fancy dress ball. To these inquiries we can make a short renlv. which is. we Iihv* nn information to give. We have heard nothing more upon the subject, but think that if another fancy dress ball is to be given at the Astor Place Theatre, it must come off very soon, as the Opera opens again on the 27th of the present month. la the meantime, we can give at least some fashionable intelligence; and that is, there will be a grand fancy dress ball given by the famous Empire Club, tt Tammany Hall, on Tuesday evening next. It seems that soire changes have taken place In thin fashionable club ; thut the celebrated Captain kynders has retired upon a pension in thr Custom House, and hia post is now filled by tli t' distinguished fashionable, Colonel Au^tii), < f the MephittophileB Guards. Colonel Austin is a very original and curious character; us much so as any who have ever been distinguished in tishionable society in New York, in that particular lin?. His adjutant, or aide, in his new post, is the celebrated Commodore Yankee Sullivan?the came to whom a silver pitcher was awarded for his gallant behaviour recently, at the Astor Place Theatre. These distinguished fashionables have got up this fancy dress bill for next Tuesday, and they intend to make it outstrip and beat all to pieces the late grand fancy ball at the Op^ra. It will be the greatest night yet of this season, Rnd gr< at I reparations are making for a splendid displty on this momentous occasion A lull and beautiful report will be given next morning of the whole bfl'uir. Modkt. Artists.?Aldermti I'tirr r mal report on Monday, before the Board of Aiderin-i, on the ?'ilij?ct ol model artUta. (tap pe.trs tii At he had beeu appointed a committee by the Corporation, toget'i r with t vo others, to invest i_rat" the decency and th? drapery of tlies' exhibitions, as tiiey exist in this modern Sodim and Gomorrah. Alderman P. associated with himjelf llecorder S'iott, in the business, anil ihey all took ait opportunity to bee the elephint, a* it appears, in his own liir. This verbal r port of tlie Alderm in, on the part of the committe , was decidedly hostile to the?e exhibitions,arid confirmed, in u!l points, th" shoe ting indecency with which tin y are siid to have b"en p e?* nted to the public in this city. It nppears that the committee visited in prion all these exhibition!, mid t'ney consider d them all < qtially deservir g to > c ii.l'-nin' i . ui plao'd in the c in" category, us dv-cid -illy indec-nt.

IJ I TBMMiWHM! HmUUEHfE. " j Inmintrf , Our telegraphic deepitchea yesterday, froin all quarters, brought imi>ortant intelligence. By the southern line, we have advices from ' Vera Cruz to the Si inst., brought by arrivals at New Orleans, which give accounts of more battles and bloodshed between the American troops and the guerillas, and, as usual, the intelligence ol ihf HftVai of the latter ; hut with th? lona nf Beveral brave men in the American ranks. We j are also apprised of an armistice having been ] agreed upon between General Butler and the , Mexican Commissioners, for two months. This i will give time for the receipt of the ratified trea- ' ty and the arrival of the American Commission- , er at the capital of Mexico. We find no allusion to General Scott, or the i court martial, among the news?but judging from j the statement that General Butler has agreed to an armistice with the Mexicans, it is to be presumed that General S. has been superseded, temporarily, as commander-in-chief, agreeably , to instructions from Washington. s From Washingtou, we learn that the Senate ' have confirmed the appointment of Mr. Sevier ( as Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipo- , tentiary to Mexico, and Mr. Walsh, son of our I consul to Paris, Secretary of Legation. Mr. Sevier will start immediately on his mission. Permission haa been given for the shipment of arms and ammunition from the ports of the Uni- ' ttd States for the protection of the white inhabi- 1 tants of Yucatan against the exterminating designs of the Indians. Commodore Perry has received instructions to attend to the proper disposition of such arms and ammunition. j The proceedings of Congress, yesterday, were j interesting. In the Senate, Mr. Cass availed 1 himself of the first opportunity to propose the ] taking up of the ten regiment bill. In this, however, he was opposed by Mr. Webster, on the ground that other business pending in ex- < ecutive session, should be disposed of before i proceeding further with the bill for the increase of the army. Mr Cuss rejoined, and spoke earnestly in favor of the passage of the bill, but finally gave way to a motion to go into executive session. Mr. llacnegan was appointed Chair, man of the Committee on Foreign Relations, in place of Mr. Sevier. The House bill, to raise hv loan, aixteen millions nf rlnllnra. was nre sented with amendments In the House, a bill for the relief of Cassius M. Clay, was introduced. The message of the President, refusing to give information respecting the return of Santa Anna to Mexico, coming up for consideration, Mr. Pat. Tompkins, of Mississippi, seized the occasion to denounce certain measures of ( the administration. He was replied to by Mr. Stanton, ?f Tennessee. By the Northern line, we have the sad intelli- , gence of the death of an able jurist and estima- 1 ble citizen, the venerable Judge (late Chief Jus- ! lice) Ambrose Spencer, the iricnd and associate of the late Chancellor Kent, and like him, a pro- ( minent feature in the history of the judiciary of our own State, and possessing a wide fame as a sound jurist and lucid expounder of the law. He died at 10 o'clock on Monday last, at Lyca?, ! Wayne cjanty, aged 83 years. The Eastern wires brought the information of the decease of the Hon. H. G. Wheaton, who died at Roxbury, Mass., on the night of the 11th inst. Mr. Wheaton has for many years previous to the present one, been engaged in diplomaric missions from the United States to the European Courts. He returned last autumn from Prussia, and was welcomed home as became one who had obtained fro n the learned of both hem'spheres, the' respect due to the sage b man. the faithful minister, isnd the erudite i>s!ho. 1st. He, too, was deeply learned in the law, had studied it comprehensively and minutely, and had, at an early period of life, developed a matter mind in the capability of making himsell acquainted with, and imparting to others, a knowledge of the great principles of govern- I ment, and the laws which control and secure the , rights of the government. He was not only learned in the law, but was a finished scholar in ] all the departments of science and literature, i Familiar with most of the languages of Europe, he had held communion with the savans of the old world in their own vernaculars. He published much, and his wotks are highly valued He was invited during the past winter to deliver a course of lectures on international law, btfore ' the law school of Cambridge University, but was prevented by the illness which has terminated in his death. Thus two more real lights of the age have seen " the last of earth." Ther* will also be found below, the proceedings in both branches of our Legislature, market reports, and a variety of other information, to which we refer our numerous readers.
