She must be close at hand, and will, in all probability, arrive in the course of to-day. Iht Treaty Investigation in tbe United States leasts, Who has not heard of Herr Driesbach, the lion tamer?the great Napoleon of the menagerie 1 For years past he has been the " observed of all observers," of the b;g boys and girls of this magnificent republic, as well as of thos- of smaller :ae and fewer years, all round the country. On the anniversary of American independence, in ach year, it is the custom of this singular man to give a splendid entertainment of raw meat and bloody bones to his menagerie. He himself takes the head of the table, 'he lion the foot of it, the elephant the^entre, the tiger opposite to the elephant, and all the minor animus in appropriate positions, with the monkeys hopping about from corner to corner. Without even a grace before meat, but with a simple whoop from Driesbarh himself, the company fall to work, roar, shout, eat, growl, bark, and then wash down the whole with a draught ot cold water from the neighboring spring. Driesbach keeps order during the entertainment, as long as he carf Each of the animals contributes his part; the lion does the roaring, the tiger the growling, and the whole concludes with an entertainment by the monkey, who tries to bite his own tail off. Such seems to be an exact parallel to the termination of the important labors of the United States Senate on the Mexican war, the Mexican treaty, and the recent investigation to find out who it was that gave the treaty to the New York Herald?a question fully as important in every point of view, a8 that which agitated this community so long?that of " who struck Billy Pat terson 1" The President and the Senate having conquered Mexico, end alter whipping her, paying her twenty millions beside, are now endeavoring to bite off their own tails, by the ridicu lous antics they have recently cut in the recent imprisonment aad incarceration, contrary to all law and constitution, of t n independent individual, who chooses to keep his own secrets, when the Sin-ate had not sagacity or sense enough to keep theirs. It is hardly possible to touch any portion of the conduct of the Senate in this investigation, without creating a general laugh among all persons of common sense, beyond the reach of the corrupt atmosphere of Washington. In another part of this day's papT we give a number of extracts, from various newspapers, on this subject, all of which, with one or two inconsiderable exceptions, concur in the opinion that a violation of persona! rights and personal liberty, contrary to law and i constitution, has been perpetrated in the impri- j oonment of Mr. Nugent, the Washington correspondent of the New York Herald, because he would not divulge to them the ailairs connected with his own private business and the business of the Herald, merely to gratify the curiosity ot the Senate. The only exception to : this general opinion is to be iound in a remarks- J ble quarter, and that is in the Philadelphia 1 ledger, a journal wtiich generally has been con- i ducted with a due regard to the rights of the press and the privileges of the people. The principal correspondent and contributor of that journal has undertaken to defend the Senate, without giving a single quotation from law or constitution upholding that defence. Not content with that, he endeavors, with extraordinary meanness, to create a prejudice against the gentleman, I whose personal liberty has been assailed by the Senate, because he supposes him to be a foreign- j er?a native of another land?possibly ol Ireland. Now, what makes this discreditable and con- | temptible piece of business still deeper and broad- i er in its meanness, is the fact that the nnnriiul ! contributor and Washington correspondent of . that journal, is Mr. Grund, who is a loreigner by birth himself?a r.ative of Germany. Tne other attempt to throw odium ou the conduct of our correspondent, and on his position and character, comes from the Haltimort Clipper, 1 whets correspondent, it seems, ir also a native j ot Europe, and stands in the sa.ine category with the individual assailed. We hope that thes? persons can fully exculpate : themselves; and we trust they will not fail to do i so; for this matter is destined to cut deeper, and j to pervade farther, than miny are aware ol. At presrnt we have to do with the personal rights j of Mr. Nugent; rights which have been violatnl 1 by the Senate, and which must be restored belore the great denouement, connecting it with Mr. Polk and other politicians at Washington, can take place. On the question of law, no doubt can exist in any iniad. The fif.h arnc'e of the amendments j to the constitution of the United States reads as ' follows: asticl.ll r. No person shall bs UalJ to antsfr for a capital, or otb*rsns? infamous crime, unlets on % presentment or tnilotmsnt of a K sod jdry .?cept in cases arising In tbs land or nrVal lorose, or id tbv mil.lla, when In aoiusl srvtcs la time of war or publts danger . nor Shalt any parson bs subject for lit* asine off-a-* to b? t?| ? put n jeopardy ot Ills or limb , ?#r ?h?;t k, r,imp,Urd it, I ny criminal cat' l? be a wilntu af utnl himielf, not j It 4tpnvr4 of I ft, lik-rly, or jimiitriy, f 4* t I proem of (air , nor shall prlrate propsity bs taken for pablU us?, without just oomp?nssth<n. Now under this article we contend that the conduct of the United .Slates Senaf, ccret session, i? a groat, vioient and disgraceful infrsction of thia moat valuable article and provision. Mr. Nugent was called upon as a witness to testify on an investigation ae to the mystery of the publication of the treaty with Mexico, in the HrraJd. Thia proceeding was in the nature of a criminal prosecution; and at the very first step, the Senate violated the first principles ol criminal law, as well as the fifth article of the amendments to the constitution, by forcing Mr. Nugentintothe position ofbeinga witnessagainst himself, or of imprisonment of person. Under the law and the constitution, he was not bound, in such a position, to reply to a single question put to him by ttle Senate; yet waving the right, he courteously answered a number of questions, all of which exculpated the Senate, the Cabinet, and other persona involved in (he suspicions of the moment. Not content wiih that, it seems that the Senate put further questions; but Mr. Nugent refused to give further replies. For thisrefusal, the Senate deprives him of his liberty, and, we may acid, of his property, by depriving him of his employment; and this is done by the mere volition of the Senate, without any due proC'ss of law, as the constitution prescribes and provides. The only ground or authority they put forward in defence of such a course, is that growing out of some undefined and undefinable privilege. hedged around the Senate, in secret session, in some way not known to the world at large. ThiB is equally unconstitutional; not only is the con* duct of the Senate illegal and unconstitutional, and a violation of personal rights and liberty, but the very system which they have adopted, of debating in secret session, is opposed to the spirit of the constitution?opposed to the spirit of the American revolution, and is one of those remnsnts, yet remaining, of the feudal and monarchical system which prevailed in the middle ages, and which aided and assisted to bring about the recent revolution in Paris,and the downfall of Louis Philippe from a throne which he did not deserve. In a republic there should be no secrecy, cither in the government or in the courts of law. The President's office, the public departments, all the archives of the government and of Congress, shou'd be as open to the public as the courts of law now are The first effort of freedom, in the middle ages, was directed to th* breaking up of secrecy in the courts of law?to opnn the doors of justice. Secrecy has been retained in the diplomatic departments of the various European governments, contrary to the spit it of the age; and the sam; system prevails iu a certain portion of our government at Wash ington, arising from the weakness and supineness of the people. In every point of view, therefore, the incarceration of Mr. Nugent, for refusing to reply to impertinent questions respecting our business, put to him by the Senate of the United States, is a gross and palpable violation of the constitution, nuu an rquuuy yruaa viuianuu ui iur principle* of the revolution, and ought to be denounced at such by every freeman, and every independent journal in the country. The quest ion then arises how a number of men of sense and intelligence, such as compose thr Senate, could so far forget their position, their duty, and their common sense, as to institute such an absurd, ridiculous and illegal proceed ing 1 We can account for it in no other way 'han the beliel that it is mixed up with some oi the contemptible and dirty intrigues among the Presidential aspirants at Washington, and in tended to bear on the Baltimore convention, which is to meet next month for the nomina tion of a democratic candidate for the Presi At*n/?v Tt hn/1 Knpn nnntiAaP/l that Mr Tinr?hanan Secretary of State, gttve the treaty to the correa pondent of the Herald. This, to be sure, was e gross error; but it was the general suspicion.? For weeks after the publication ot that treaty, nothing was said on the supposed violation, in the executive councils of in Congress. Unfortunately, however, a convention in Pennsylvania nominated Mr. Buchanan as a candidate for the Presidency, and held him a strong and powerful man before the Baltimore convention. Almost starting from that moment, it app'ars that this investigation was set on foot, beginning in the White House,and communicating itself tothe private chamber of the Senate. Mr. Hannegan, it seems, was instigated by the President to commence this investigation, and in this he waa supported by Mr. Turney, of Tennessee, and several other democratic Senators of the extreme gauche We6uppos^d, at first,that Mr Cass, Senator from Michigan, was one of the principal leaders in this business ; but further information hss satisfied us that he is innocent of committing this absurditv. which wm set on fool hv Mr Polk himself, and carried through by his agents ?Messrs Ilannegan and Turney. The whole affair is connected witn an eff'orton the part of Mr. Polk to intrigue for a renomination at the Bilti more convention; and the investigation, at th?* start, was expected to enable him to dispose at leart of one of his competitors in this way? Mr. Buchanan. A full developement of the in . ;stigation, with its antecedents, will be given in a few days. In the meantime, w )? fe the United States Semite to make another attempt, in some shape, to as to beat the monkey who tried to bite off his own tail, for the entertainment oi Drieobach and hi a menagerie. Mexican Affairs?The Quarrels of our Gemkkals.?The alfiira connected with Mexico and our conquest of that country, do not interest the republic to as great an extent as they did pre vious to the French revolution Their interest is fading every day. There seem to be now only two points which are calculated to command any attention from any person; and one is, whether the trea'y will be ratified by the wreck of the Mexican government still existing; and the other point is, when will the quarrels among our generals assume a form of decency aad propriety, and lead to a peaceful termination 1 With respect to the first matter?the confirmation of the treaty by the Mexican government? we do not think that it is of much consequence whether they confirm it or not. It is pro? liable, however, that it will be confirmed by the shadow of a government that may exist at Querela It is true many persons write from Mexico, giving different intimations, and entertaining different opinions; but the recent events in Europe, the entire destruc ion of the French monarchy, and the probable troubles, it not revolution, in Spain and elsewhere, will at once close up every avenue of intrigue which had beeu opened by Paredes, aud those in Mexico hostile to the United States, and calculated to protract the war. The Mexicans will see at once that there is no t hance for th it republic but instant submission to any terms that we may choose to offer them, or their annihila tion ha an independent republic. After all, we suppose Uia; the amount of money offered to them, at the rate of three millions per year, for five years, will always produce a government ol sufficient strength and standing to rorihrm the treaty, and preserve peaceful relations of a tolerable kind between the two countries, during the period for which these pa) meets will continue. With regard to the quarrels of our generals, and principally that be'ween Generals Scott and Worth, and others, the public are beginning to * ntertain but one sentiment, and that is unqualified and unmitigated contempt for the whole. Thsse gentlemen and their Irieiidsthink that they areall and all?everything ; that they monopolize the glory of the two campaigns; and nothing is talk d of but the glory of Scott, the woaderfui i bravery of Worth, or the tremendous mihtar] capacity of aome other one Little ia aaid of th< courage, the endurance, the honor, the forbearance, and the brilliancy of the private soldiera? of the AmeriCin citizens?who volunteered and enlisted, and who fought all the bittlei and shed their blood in the war. Then is hardly a common soldier in that arm; of heroes who marched from Vera Cru to Mexico, who would not have behave< and conducted himself with more discretion am prudence, as a man and an individual, than wha General Scott and a' 1 his generals have displayei j in the recent discreditable and disgraceful quar : rela among themselves, about the honor of thos I victories, which were fought and bled for, am j won, by the men. We do not deny that Gene ral Scott and his associates have diaplayei great genius and skill in their dispositions ani plans, and that they accomplished much; bu why should the whole world be convulsed b; their ridicu'ous persona! quarrels, springing fror vanity aad ambition, while the private soldierstheboneaad muscle?are to be forgotten, am rreeive credit for little or nothingt The tw? campaigns in Mexico were the most brillian that ever took place in the history of any coun try, ancient or modern. They reflect the high est honor on the American people and the Ame rican troops?on their courage, their skill, thei endurance, and their genius. As military men the generals have also exhibited great skill; bu in every other point of view, our diplomatist and generals are mere children?irritable, fretful discontented big boys; and in this condemnalioi we include Mr. Polk and his diplomatists, an< Gen. Scott, and all those he is quarreling with In fact, General Taylor seems to be the only mai of common sense among the whole, either mili tary or diplomatic. In this view of the recent campaigns, and ihi conquest of Mexico, we think, after all, that tb< best thing that could be done by the Americai people is to cast off all those generals and diplo mats, and principally Mr. Polk, General Scotl and the whole bunch of them; to hare an entir revolution in our country, and put in the Whit House that plain, simple man, Zachary Tayloi and see if we could not then get rid of such non sense in high places as we see perpetrated ever; day French Residents and Ofpicials in th United States.?The revolution in France ha produced strange changes among the French re sidents and officials in this country. First amon? the officials?it seems that M. Pageot the French minister at Washington, has not ye been replaced by any new appointment, as wa intimated in some ot the journals; but, expectiui to be removed, he has " taken time by the tore lock," and will transmit by the steamer whicl will leave Boston to-inorrow, his resignation t< the new provisional government. There is ai anecdote toid in .Xsop's, or some other tables that when a gentlemanly dog once saw prepara tions making to kick him down stairs, he hat the sagacity to put his tail between his legs ant retreat, before the demonstration took place. M Pageot was a political and special appoiniben of Louis Philippe, and could not, of course, witl any consistency as a man, give in his adhesioi to a republic which banished his patron and sen him adrift in ths Dritish Channel, with only i five franc piece in his pooket. His resignation ii such a case is manly and appropriate. Another distinguished French official in thi country, is the Consul General for New York, M de la Forest, it has been supposed that in conse quence of tne letter received by him from M. La martinc, the Foro'gn Secretary ot the provision al government, he has been retained in office It must, however, be recollected that that lette: is merely a species of circular, transmitted to al the principal official personages in foreign conn tries, and that it by no means commits the govern ment to the re-appointment of M. de la Forest This gentleman has been for many years thi Consul General in the United States, under thi elder Bourbons, the Orleans family, and now under the republic. Wethink it extremely doubt ful, therefore, looking at the circumstances ol the case, and principally at the terms of the lette: of M. La marline, whether he will be retained Indeed, it is more probable that all thi principal consuls and ministers employed b; Louis Philippe will be removed as soon as thi new government shall have made up their minds and agreed on the men to replace them. In sucl a case, the sudden adhesion of the French consu ^ere, to the republic, will probably go for a much in inflnencinp the crnvprnment in Paris, s the adhesion of Marshal Soult, or the Archbisho; of Paris, or the various members of the Napoleoi family, and many others, well knotfn to enter tain opinions entirely hostile to republican go vemrr.ont. By the last steamer, many of the French peoph living in this country returned to France, and w< understand that many more will go in the steame which will sail in a few days. Prince Murat, o rather citizen Murat, son of the ex-king of Na pies, who has been living in Bordentown, ver; respectably for several yearn past, returned ti France a short time ago, and the object of hi visit, we learn, was to recover a large fortune amountiugto lour millions of francs, which hai : been unjustly appropriated by Louis Philippe du ring his reign. M. Murat has no ambitiou J motive in returning to France, his only objec | being to recover this fortune from tha rapiciou | hands of Louis Philippe; and we trust that h< ; may be successful. 1 Another gentleman returns or very soon ' md that is M. Gaillardet, tha ex-editor o ; a French journal in this city, who has just soh I out his establishment to a gentleman in Nev | Orleans, for fifty thousand dollars. For Bevera i ye^rs past M. Gaillardet has edited this journal ; and has, during that time, exhibited a good dea of versatility ol talent?some wit and humor! not a little of spite and malevolence, bu 1 very little of either political or personal eonsis tency. It is only a few weeks ago, that in repl; j to some statements made in the columns of th , Herald, giving au accurate picture ol the cor rupt system of Louis Philippe, and his unfriend > ly feeliags towards the United States, becausi it was a republic, M. Gaillardet took up th< j cudgels for Louis Pnilippe, defended him?ac tually approved of nil his doings, his principle and his practices, for the purpose of showin the American people that the views communica tod by the Herald, of the corrupt influences c Louis Philippe's system, were all wrong and al ludicrous Since that brief period of time L >uis Philippe has departed from the scene, republic has been established, and M. Gaillardet forgetting his cross of honor, and all me favor he had received from the family and dynasty o Louis Philippe, took the first opportunity to com i out and insult his poor patron, by saying that h< e^teootcl lil/a o "hicaAsi R?Gtr fmm iKn atarra 1 We think this does not display political e t personal consistency ; but perhaps there is a ' msch ef betn in it as you will find in many ii France and out 01 it, who, like him, have givei their sudden adhesion to a republic, and who, i a monarchy were established to-morrow, wouli give tn their adhesion to that too, and as sudden ly. Generally, however, the French people hai the republic with great exultation and just feel ings; for Frenchmen are Frenchmen all the worlt over, and as long as they live, and we are no sure but they remain French in heaven also, i they ever get there.

What the Telegraph can do.?Although the lectrie telegraph has been in operation in this ountry for a considerable time, we apprehend hat there are many in the community who have ut a faint idea of its value and importance, as . medium of communicating intelligence. We vould etate, for the information of those who io net appreciate its usefulness and importance, hat by the line from this city to Boston, in Mosachusetts, a distance of two hundred and fifty niles, we received the immensely large number of even thousand words in the short space of three tours, on a recent occasion. This, at first sight, night appear incredible, but it is a positive fact; aid further, we can tell the doub'ing, that in adlition to transmitting this great amount of inteligence, fifteen fair and legible copies of it were nade within the sama time?the whole of vhich was done under the direction of Mr leach, the operator in the Boston office, and dr. Bull, the chief operator in the New York iffice. The electric telegraph is, without docbt, he great discovery of the nineteenth century. Sporting Intelligence* Union Cousin, L.
