We give in another column of this day'a Heraid, the instructions of the Secretary of State to Mr. Slidell, when the latter set out on his mission to Mexico, betore the war with Mexico. They will be read with great interest. Ilie United States and the French Revolution. The position that may be assumed by the United States, in the present crisis of French and European affaire", will not only be important tc both continents, but may aff-ct the future history of the civilized world. This republic is the model and exemplar of the revolutionists of France, and of all Europe. They copy our constitution, imitate our institutions, follow our political fashions, and adopt our principles of public policy. The new movement in Paris_will only tend to heighten and extend those sentiments towards the United States. This being the case, it is therefore highly im poriani inai me people ana government ot tuis republic should, calmly, deliberately, and firmly, assume such a position towards the new French revolution, and other revolutionary movements in Europe, as will correspond with the character, the principles, and the power of this great confederacy. The prominent measures which have agitated Congress during the existing session, will have to be laid aside, or abandoned as unimportant, before the vastness of the new prospect which opens upsn us from across the Atlantic. The first thing that should be done ut once, by Congtesa and the President, is the enlargement of the navy and the immediate institution of naval academies, similar in principle and objects, towards the naval service, as our military academies have been towards the military service of the republic. The Mexican war is finished The new treaty is on its way to that republic; and whether it be ratified or not by the Congress at Queretaro, henceforth tlie M?xican leaders and people cannot move to the right hand or to the left. The revolution in France, and the downfall of Louis Philippe, with a probable revolution ir? Spain and elsewhere, take away all chances of the monarchists in Mexico, to make any head in that part of the world. Let, therefore, the Congress at Washington withdraw their eyes and attention from the southern republic, and concentrate all th* ir mind on the n?w republic, which has risen with the _< .1 .1 _:j_ -f .u_ a. lajMuny m a mcicui uu nic uuici ?iur ui mr nilantic, and which will produce dlects on the old continent, that can hardly be estimated, for their magnitude, at this moment. All our great men, statesmen and orators, must prepare for the new age which is opening upon them. The United State?, as a republic, will Boon stand at the head of civilization; but first there is a mighty and prodigious conflict to pass through in Kurope, and how they may brook it, or what direction il may take, no one can predict with accuracy at this moment. Let the President and Congress wake up at once. A vast problem is before them. They rannot put it aside. They cannot postpone its solution. Wake up?wake up?wake uj>. New Inflttknot on Parties in the United States.?The revolution in France, and the policy which must soon be adopted by the Uuited States government, will produce a corresponding effect on the feelings and attitude ol parties in this country. Duriug the old revolution of 1789, the democratic party of that day sympathiz-d with the popular movement in Prance; arid tiie federalists, ? l. ... jr.' 1 1 i on iuc uuunai j, i uuiw nur B wiih i^u^tauu auu ihe monarchical institutions of Europe. hat was an unfortunate issue lor the old federalists; and after a long contest on these points, the democratic party finally triumphed, and the federalists sunk into nothingness and inanity. The new revolution in Europe will throw a similar issue before the action of parties in this country, and'that too, in a short time, before the Presidential election. Hitherto, it has been supposed that the Mexican war would be the only issue ali<*cling or determining the Presidential campaign. We may now any the Mexican war, and all its glory and ail its disgrace, il any there is, will be placed entirely in the back ground. In less than a month, Mexico will not be heard of. The army will reuirn from that country as soon as the tresty reaches there and is ratified, and all in pwper time, without a word being said. N>-w issues, fresh, invigorating and animating, will be placed before the American people; and that issue will be the great contest between popular liberty in Europe, and the institutions of monarchy. Thi?, we believe, will have a great effect on the Presidential election; and it will be well for all politicians to be wary how they take any ground during the next few months. Generai. tiAiNta.- By a card, addressed by General < and >.* lady, to their friends, we learn that they lrave town, in a day or two, for New Orleans. The purpote ? l the journey 's, probably, to tal e toward* the recovery of the vast property in that region, whirh has reverted to Mrs. Gaines, by the recent decision of the United Stales Supreme Court. It is generally iUppOBi d that the value ucovered is about $J.j,0<KJ,000, which, however, will be com,to mned lor tea or twelve million*. C'A?70fRof - b-tATt ?.<*ousi' Thi eIreneincai rrcducfi ty ths rsrolution in t'afi*, ha? j prevented the mind from dwelling with any defree of attention on trie progress ot things in England, and the condition of that country at the last dates. Englishmen in this region, laugh at thetdeaof a probable revolution in that country; but thos?who have examined with an unprejudiced eye, the elements that have been agitating there within the last tew years under the surface, will not , join in such incredulity, but believe in the i prospect of some great and radical change taking rj I'ltjir 111 nidi country. i nc rrcxiuii irvuiuuuu i must produce its natural effect on the middling I aud lower classes in England, lu London, all those connected with the press?even while the newspapers are advocating monarchy and aristocracy?are well known to be republicans in prin1 ciple, and are only waiting for an opportunity to carry their principles into action. The aristocracy in England consists of two branches?the landed , und the pnper ; those connected with the land" ed, owning immense estates; and thoBe r connected with the public debt, owningimmense amounts of those securities. There are, to be sure, about one hundred thousand small annuitants, who have an interest in the preservation ol the present government; but they are by no mear.a the active portion of the population, nor possess much influence on the progress of public events. The recent debates in the House of Commons are very ominous ot even the fall of the Russell ministry. The finances of England are in a most wretched condition. There have been great di i ficiencies in the revenue?equal to $15,000,000 a year, and Lord John Russell has proposed no re medy but an increase in ths taxes?direct and palpable taxation. This has already produced great consternation among all classes of the people, aud even has been commented upon with great asperity by a great portion of the London press. Even the London Timet begins to ridir cu!e the Russell cabinet. In the meantime, the singular revolution and disenthralment in France, will soon produce cor responding effects on the inflammable materials in the manufacturing districts, which'are highly excitable, particularly in Manchester, Glasgow, and other parts of the British empire. The city of London, in which are conccntrated the landed aristocracy, and nil the great merchants, bankers and big financiers, is less imbued, probably, with popuJir feelings than any other portion of the empire; yet there are powerful elements of democracy at wotk in that great metropolis, and they only want some stirring event, like that of the French revolution, to concentrate its action. In spite of all the steadfastness attributed to the , English government and existing institutions, . we should not be at all surprised to see | a revolution soon in that country?perhaps i before six months will have passed away. It is even doubtful whether the present goverrmerit, or any government, can maintain the institutions in that country for such a length of time, without some terrible radical charge. There are nearly one hundred member* of he House ot Commons, republicans?radicals, as they as are called. All the writers and reporters of the newppaper press are republicans. Many of the journals, principally ftle weeklies, are ultra republican; and it is only the immense wealth and influence of the great financiers and lords, that prevent the daily press of London from launching into democracy and democratic agitation. The next arrival will give us the effect of one week's movements in Paris, on the hitherto torpid population ol London and the British empire. We say nothing of Ireland?that is a prairie on fire. The Great Financiers in EuRors.?The revolution in Paris, and the probable spread of revolution throughout Western Europe, and perhaps in England, will produce an equally destructive and terrible revulsion among the great capitalists, bankers, merchants, and finan ciers iiiruugiioui ine \_mu worm. The aggregate public debt of the difl'erencountries in Europe, excluding Russia, is pro, bably shout six thousaud millions of dollar*, the interest on which amounts annually to about three hundred millions of dollars. This great sum of money is expended in the maintenance of kings and courts, and aristocracy and military. All the great financiers and capitalists of j Europe have the principal portion of their property invested in these funds. A radical revolution over the Old World, destroying the existing governments?as that of France was destroyed three weeks ago?would annihilate this vast 1 | amount of property, and hand over to ruin and bankruptcy all the rich bankers and capitalists 1 who own it. In fact, the great financiers o! Europe are worth nothing at this minute beyond i the furniture in their houses, and the gold and j silver in their iron chests. i The revolution in Paris will produce a greater revulsion on the monied aiVura of Europe, and a 1 greater change in the social efidira of individuals and wealthy families, then any that has been produced, from the creation of the world to the j present d?y. The debts of Europe have been acI iiiimnluf inrr fr%T u nfiftnH t\f nna lunwlruil anrJ | v...*, ...'j | years, through nearly a dozen intestine wars of all kinds. These wars have imposed on difj fertnt nations a yearly revenue of three hundred millions of dollars, which is taken from the industry of the population, to support in idleness, sloth and extravagance, royalty and all its trappings. There is laad enough in Europe, if properly cultivated, to bupport all the inhabitants, and half as great a number besides; but the unequal state ol society, and the attrocious system of goj vernment, produce the inequalities established in Europe?thus bringing about famine, pestii lence and death,so frequently in those unfortu* | nate countries. The eflect of such a revulsion will ba tremendous on commercial affairs in Europe, and also un the manufacturing energies. At the last accounts, the cotton operatives of England were preparing to emigrate to the United States in large numbers; and we have no doubt that the revolutionary movement commenced in France, will send to the United States vast nuinb?rs of artisans of all kinds, and also of small capitalists, and others, who can save their little property from the approaching wreck. In the meantime, all the commercial interests in the large cities on this continent, intimately connected with the ] large cities of Europe-such as London, Liverpool, Havre and Parjs?will soon feel one of the ! severest revulsions and shocks that was ever i telt in this country. Look forward?prepare for ! it. It will not, however, affect the prosperity of the United Slates, but extravagant people, who will fall without notice; and industry and prudence will take their places. Thk Contested Election in Congress.?It i s said that the Committee on Elections, in the ' House of Representatives, will, shortly, report ; in favor of Col Monroe of this city.

The adoption of the views so strenuously advocated by this gentleman, will give an illimitable scope to the members; and an abuse of the privilege would tend to abridge the national revenue, especially during the coming Presidential campaign. The bill was referred to the Post Office Committee, for their consideration. A joint resolution for the purchase of American hemp for the use of the navy, with amendments, leaving the subject discretionary with the Secretary of that department, Wrs adopted. The question of the mission to Rome followed, on Mr. Benton's amendment for a full embassy, and led to a very warm discussion between Measra. Iiale, Hanne gan, oiaytou, roote, ana mtea. j. ne contention between the Senators ended in the defeat of the a nendment, by a vote of 28 to 13 ; and the mission, for the present, remains in ttatu quo. A d-spatch from Washington states that Gen'l Siields will probably be selected to represent this government at the Court of Home, should Congress decide favorably on the question In the House, Mr. Sawyer, of Ohfo, moved to tike up the bill making provision for bringing home 'he bodies of the slain during the war with Mexico, in which he was opposed by Mr. Haski 1 , of Tennessee, and the bill was relerred t i the miliiary committee. The correspondence between Gen. Scott, Mr. Trist, and the government, was received from the President, and the usual number of copies ordered printed. The appropriation bill was next taken up, and an exciting debate ensued on the clause appropriating money for the Choctaw school?, which continued until the adjournment. The reports of the State Legislature, markets, miscellaneous matters, &c., &c , below, are all interesting. The Million to Rome. Washington, March 20,1848.

Government securities have fluctuated more than any other, and the closing prices ruled lower tbau for some weeks previous. We attribute this partially ' o the jeitrioted state of the mcney market, and paUly 'O the apprehension entertained relative to the ratification of the treaty in Mexico. It is the prevailing impression that a long time must elapse before the two governments finally settle upon term* of peace, and neg.v tiatiocshav* by no means ceased, even on cur part. The Mexican government formed a treaty of peace and s?nt it to the President cf the United States for ratification; this treaty was altered and modifli d by the S?nate,ra'itled and returned to Mexico, by special commissioners. We are boucd to believe that tba t.Ttns of the treaty, its amended and ratified, is the ultimatum of the treaty miking tower cf the United States; that the commissioners have no authority to change a word or iino of the treaty; but aro merely empowered to obtain its ratification by the Congress of Mexico. The acoeptanc* of the tnaty in its mcdsfied shape, by the government of Mexico, is not eroagh; wj must have i'j ratification by the Congress of Mexico; and a great deal of difficulty will be experienced in getting ths membsrs of the Congrras together. There are one hundred members, end at the latest aCOOUntS OOlvtwentv-foUr OOlllil !,? nn.*nll?.l iinrm or compelled to remain a; the coat tf j^ovrnmrnt. This gives ns some Idea of the opposition existing at that time, among the representatives of tba people, to peaoe la any shape; and we fear it will be almost ao Impossibility to get such n number tngothar a.i tbe constitution required for t'.io ratification of a treaty of peac^ Kven in the event of a quorum, or a 'egil number, belrg gr t together, it by no means follows that the treaty ratified by our government will be accepted at one \ cr even at ail. Alteiatlone and modifications will doubtless be made, and a treaty ra'lti.'d by the Mexican Corgrees (fnt to tbe President < f the United Htites for acosp^ancs. This will produoe points nh'ch may be at issue between tbu two give.-iiaants for a great length of time, and put off tii? final setCiment of tbe existing difficulties betaBen ths two countries, ranch longer titan is now gsnm-liy anticipated.

This is the first time that the people of Illinois ever bal an opportunity to express their opinions directly upon this question, and their cocecntto be taxed an additional amount annually for the purpose of pro riding a fund for the ultimate ? ticotlon of that part of the public debt depending upou t nation This ia a grand result, and must satisfy those who have heretofore doubted the willingness of the people of our Western States to be taxed, that there is a determination to meet tbe demands of their bondholders promptly Illinois must scon occupy a muoh batter posit on In tbe list of ind'bted States than she does now. Within the next twelve months, she will make greater prc>gr?es towards the accomplishment of euch a desirable result, than in the previous fire, and the development of her resouroes, in her effort* to resume the full payment of the interest on the publto debt, will ke most rapid. All the other States In the Union are going on prosperously la their finanots. The steady increase in the valuation of taxable property in each State, mufat, before the lapse of many year*, reduce the rate of taxes very materially, and with tiro or three exceptions, taxes ?re higher now than they ever will be again. As the publlo works of the different States inorease in productlvenrss, direct taxes must decrease, unless the public debt beoomes larger. The annual expenditures on oocouut o' State governments, are less than they have heretofore been, and, with a steady reduotion in the debts, the burdnn of taxation must be sensibly lightened. The position of our public debts, compared with those of Europe, is as strange as it may have beta unexpected to Xn&Dv A fflV vatm dnA* Within j several of tbe States hc,v<i oontraoted large debts, bee me delinquent, and partially renamed again; within that period we hare reached the highest point of publio credit, and sank to the lowest depths of Insolvency?so (Imp lu some instances ai to reaeh repudiation. The credit of the most miserable countries on the faee of the earth was far superior to ours, and they could obtain large loans when we could not obtain the first dollfcr. Seven years ago our flnatoes were in. the utmort confusion, and no one knew'how long the strongest State in the Union could sustain Ler credit While all was doubt and distrust on this side of the Atlantic, the governments cf Europe enjoyed the highest state of oredit and they were usiog it, too, most lavishly. They were oontlnually making new loans and adding millions upon millions to the national indebtedness. European capitalists loaned libel ally at the lowest rate of interest, and the rate of taxation imposed upon the people of Europe was rolling up with the greatest rapidity. What is the position of Europe and the United States at the present time? "What Is the basis cf the oredit of each, and where is the vast wealth of the great European bankers who have made such wise discriminations in loaning their money f The revolutioniits In France will soon settle their part ef the olaims those houses have against European governments, and it will be in the shape of repudiation of the most thorough order | Those who had no faith in oar ability to ultimately j m?et every fraction of publio indebtednesr?who put ; more faith in princes than in republicans?have made a fatal mistake. The debt of France, at this time, amounts to about $2 000 ( 00,000, equal to nine times the aggregate indebt Intra of every State is this Union and the genera government. W.ti a population about fifty per cent g -eater than that of this oountry, the taxes merely for the payment of interest on the publio debt, are about five times as large. The revenue and expenditures cf the re. a it government of Franca were immense. Taxes, amounting to mora than two hundred millions of dol1 irs per annum, were levied, most of whioh was paid by tbe middling and lower olssses. It is an historical fact, that tbe 200 000 electors did not pay taxes for over 610Q0 000 francs, or about the twentieth part of the whole amount collected. Most of these 300,000 electors are offlae-holders, drawing lar^e salaries from tbe govern mant. Notwithstanding <he immense revenue derived fr>m such enormous and tnequal taxation, the expendltris excetdtd the revenue, 'and tbe annual In* | oreaee In tr>e jublio debt was very large. The i rectnt loan made to the deposed government shows how rapidly the burdeni of the people were increasing, which, with the restrictions upon \ their rights nod privileges, were more than they oould ; bear up under.
