Resolved. That " upou the HUlgcctK of the tarifT. the curreucy. the Improvement of our great highway*, rivers, lakes, and harbors, the will of the people, as expressed through their representatives in Congress, ought to be respected and carried out by the Kxecutive." Resolved. That - war at all times and under all circumstances is a national calamity, to be avoided. If compatible with national honor;" that the principles of our government, us well as its true policy, are opposed to tho subjugation of other nations aud the dismemberment of other countries by conquest, for in the language of the great Washington, why should we quit our own to stand on foreign ground.' " pm* She* Smith. Esq., being loudly called for. after some time, at length jumped upon the platform. and addresaed the meeting In an ardent and vehement strain. Mr. Smith concluded an eloquent address on the usual topic*, by wishing health and prosperity to the administration, which, by making war with Mexico, had raised (?) old Zach Taylor to the Presidency. Hi'oh Maxwell, Esq., then came forward, after loud and repeated calls by the meeting, and addressed the assembly vory briefly. Mr. Maxwell concluded by moring to adjourn, which was carried, and the meeting dispersed. AAUra In Venezuela. | Caracas, April 10. 1848. As the bark Venezuela is about leaving. I send you a few lines, although there is very little stirring at the present moments. President Monagas Is stiU in the interior, with a large body of troops, endeavoring to watch tho movement of the troons under Oen. Paez. and we are without any punitive information an to the whereabouts of Paei, or his movements. The city of Caracas is as quiet at this moment, as though no civil war existed; the operations of the armies are so far removed into the interior, that we only feel Its effects in the stagnation of all kinds of business. The frienda of Paes arc still sanguine in their hopes that in a short time ho may make an impression on tha forces under Monagas; but at present we are at a loss to conjecture the tardy movements of both armies. There is a great deal of valiant talk, but I believe there is little fighting likely to take place. Time must determine; mauy of those who marched out two months ago aro returning to the city. sick, and worn out with long marches over mountains and hot plains. Some idea may be formed of the state of the country, by the difficulty in obtaining money; 3 to 5 per cent, per mouth has been paid in many instances for the best paper; the forced loan has been paid in after much '' disgusto;" the much tulked of two million of paper money has not yet made its appearance. Senor A. L. Gusman returned to Caracas a few days ago. hut ho will most likely remain quiet, as he owes his life to Monagas. Should he resume his pen as formerly, he is capable of doing much mischief. Some are of opinion that he may bo sent on a mission to Great Britain. Nothing is unlikely after what has pasted: the Creoles are truly a strange people to rule a republic. Our " charge d'affaires.'" B. O. Shields. Esq.. has taken possession, and moved into the mansion of Gen. Pae?, in this city, for the purpose of protecting it in the absence of the owner. Should any thing of importance occur, I will advise you by the first opportunity. The U. 8. men-of-war, which we have been looking for have not yet arrived. Interesting Mexican Intelligence.?The following is extracted from a letter received by a gentleman of this city from his correspondent, a highly respectable man now in v era Cruz ; and it presents a good picture of the state of affairs in Mexico. It is dated Vera Cri-z. April 32,1S48. There are still. rumors of peace ; but no one can Hay when, If It ever doe* occur. Tlie opinious here are ns varied as tho winds. Mr Trist is here, on his way to the United States.and lie confidently asserts that the treuty will bo ratified by the Mexican Congress, but you will recollect that it is one of his own children laboring to see the light. On the other hand. 1 have seen a letter from General Smith, and also from General Worth.? Smith doubts that the treaty will be ratified. Worth thinks it will : but that some time must elapse first, and an additional clause bo inserted, binding our goyernment to keep a large armed force in the couutry. to protect the signers from the military aspirants who will deprive the President. Pena y Pena, of power tho moment our forces are withdrawn. There is a party composed of the landed interests, conjointly with a large portion of merchants and traders, which goos in strongly for annexation ; and to this party is ascribed tho lukewarinncss of the representatives who have hitherto kept hack and prevented a quorum of Congress from being formed. Tho Indians, who couiposo three-fourths of the population of this vast country, have, tytwithstanding their proverbial ignoranco, discovered some of the differences between our mode of managing things, and the iron rulo which the Mexicans have neld over them.

Picayune, May 2 1 The steamship Virginia came up 011 Sunday night, but we have nothing later from the City of Mexico by her. A letter from our correspondent at Vera Cru* mentions that an American soldier who accompanied the last train from tho City of Mexico, from indisposition lagged behind, and being overhauled by the diligence, he obtained a passage The stage was soon after attacked by robbers, who. after plundering the passengers of their valuables, took out the American soldier and shot him. Our correspondent could not learn his name. A correspondent at Orizaba writes us. on the 18th ult. : ' There is nothing of interest occurring here. That abominable armistice is the only source of trouble. as I knew it would be when first I saw it. Thu Mexicans arc trying to take overy ndvantage. even by forced constructions, of its too liberal terms.

M. The market opened heavy this morning. Notwithstanding the inactivity among operators, prices were without much change. The firmness of holders in the midst of the dullness, is a subject of remark, and no one seems to understand the present position of things in the street. There appears to be no prospect of any improvement of consequence in prices, and it is difficult to get them down much. At the first board, to-day, Reading Railroad fell off >?, and North American Trust per cent; all others closing at prices current yesterday. The packet ship Splendid, far Havre, carricd out $405,257 in specio. SmrMKMTs or Srccic per Splendid, for Havre.

The variety of coins shipped shows the difficulty experienced in getting proper kinds for export. Q- Ik. ?V. Cnntk on.I "J " ?""> the banks of this city are enabled to prevent any depreciation of their supply; but the gold and silver of the country at largo, is rapidly declining. The Southern ban kit have recently bee u very much woakened by the ^rainof specie for tho North, and the report* of the suspension of gome of the bank* of that section, and the run upon others, were the result of the reduoed amount of bullion in their vaults. At the second board the salon were larger than usual, at a slight depreciation in prices, compared with those current in the morning. Harlem fell off J* per cent; Long Island. S'i Reading. .<?; United States' fl's. 1856)4. There will be a meeting at the Alitor House, tomorrow ?Wednesday?evening, the 10th instant, of those interested. In reference to the establishment of a Dry Goods Bank. We hnvc heard the names of several of our most influential importers named ill connection with this project, and we havo no doubt a company will be speedily organized, and the proper arrangements made, to establish sucli an institution. There is only one bank in Wall street which confines its operations entirely to tho legitimate line; every other bunk iu that section of the city is used more by speculators than any other class; and in times of scarcity, when the merchants are really in want of discounts, their offerings are refused, and the facilities of the banks are absorbed by stock and other speculators. In consequence of this, the dry goods dealers have determined to start a bank of their own. to be managed entirely by their own class, and confine It* business entirely to the discount of their owu paper. Kvery important Interest in the city should do this, and leave the Wall street bauks exclusively to the speculators of that neighborhood. We trust the meeting will be large, and that proper measures will be promptly adopted.

They have heretofore looked upon any form of government springing froiu the people, as insecure weak uud experimental, and their confidence and faith In princes have been uubounded; and they have therefore become so involved with the monarchical governments of Kurope. that all have fallen together.

Since our report of the 19th Inst., the London news to the 25th of March has reached us. the tendency of which i? calculated to have an unfavorable effect on our sugar market. Its influence has not. however, yet become perceptible, on account of the Kaster holidays, which interrupted business for a weok; and In consequence of that, no transactions have occurred to indicate the turn which prices will now take. The intelligence from Europe may be expected materially to check shipments, and as the stock is in the meantime accumulating, both here and in Matnnzas, it seems likely that prices will decline, notwithstanding the firm front that planter* have presented hitherto against the adverse course of circum.?tancus. and which they seem determined to maintain as long as possible.
