The steamship Caledonia is now due at this portf'he is in her fourteenth day. The Mlwanrt Cora promt ae-Tit e Ktw Abolition Party. The attempt to create a new and dangerous Northern abolition party, by Mr. Van Buren, of Kinderhook, on the platform of the Wilniot proviso, having reference to the new territory acquired l\ hj the treaty with Mexico, lias compelled thelead| ere of other parties in (Congress to bring forward, J for the third time, the old Missouri line of coinpromise, by way of a check to the progress of the new parly, in its first movement to dangerous power and inliuence. This compromise?the old oue of 36 deg. 30 min.?has been introduced into the Senate bv Mr. Bright, of Indiana, as an amendment to the territorial bill for Oregon, and per pectively to settle the same difficulty with regard to the territory of New Mexico and California, now ours by the new treaty. From the discussions which have taken place on this subject, in the Senate, and the intimations which have been thrown out in the House, it seems to be supposed at Washington that the passage of this compromise will uaturally reduce the difficulty which has created the barnhurning movement i" XT/ivtltAvn Ctntcin WUU txf n/mnfiir..1/ to the ultra movement which originated in South Carolina. The friends ol General Case, in Congress. and some of those professing to support General Taylor. api>ear to unite in imagining that such a measure will alluy the abolition agitation in the North. We think differently. From what we can hear and see taking place around us, we are much disposed to believe that the movement commenced by Mr. Van Buren in this Slate, will be urged on to ihe highest point of excitement, and its broadest swurtlr of extension, in spite ?f any compromise that may he passed during the present session of Congress. In fact, the leaders of this new abolition movement are determined to press it on?to carry their purposes and' fleet them? at all hazards, and against all compromises of every kind. They have taken the position, and strongly taken it, that no more territory hitherto free, and received by way of indemnity from Mexico, shall he permitted to become slave territory, with the consent of the free States of the North. If the proposition of Mr. Bright should be passed by Congress, in reference to trie territorial organization of Oregon, the barnburners, here and elsewhere, will raise the shout of repeal, with even more vengeance, and more force, ami more vindicj tiveness. than they do the |>osition which they now assume on the Wilmot proviso. This, we believe, is the unalterable determination of these enthusiasts, amounting to almost the highest species of fanaticism, which is beginning to pervade die barnburners, and all those associated with them under the mantle of Ex-Pro widen: Van Burrn. With these views and feelings, this new party j are determined to urge their purposes onward in -L- r ? ...J M, Von Ri,_ (Ills rrniuu III I'uuuu;, ana >v ?>"' .<? . ..... .... ren, if jxissiblc, the c-?ndirlat?' of the N'orih?of the i August convention M'hich is to lie hold in Buffalo. I Some of the old abolition loaders?the Tappaus ' and thoir aFsociutos?have conic out with a mini- i feato against any amalgamation between (lie original anti-slavery party?comprising sixty thousand votes at the last Presidential election?and the new party of barnburners, set in motion by Mr. Van Buren. There are differences of opinion among all ; those factions; but it is highly probable that the most violent, the most ultra, will carry the day. Mr. Van Buren has assumed his present position, associated himself with ull his friends, disciple.', and supporters, and seems to lie determined to revenge himself on the South for their neglect to him in former years, by forcing on them now a movement that may lead to most dangerous and unheard of consequences to the happiness and 1 pence of the country. What the ultimate views of Mr. V an Buren may be, is difficult to tell; but if be chooses to carry out the feelings which he has 1 brought into action, to their ultimate con>..?qucuoes, we may yet see an entire separation between the Morth and the South, and a union between the Northern States and Canada, at no very distant day. Mr. V an Buren is a cold-blooded, ambitious revengeful, and dishonest man. The new features of his character ate juBt looming gloomily In fore the world. He is the modern Burr in political action, with more cunning than Burr, and presenting greater hopes of success in his projects and parimFep. ! While this dangerous question is beginning to agitate the masses of the North and the South, and those feeble attempts to allay them ar^ intro- J lured into Congress, we yet Hee that body, in both I the houses, idling away their tune in miserable I . J. party di-cnt sions relative to the jiersonnl merits of j the various candidates for the Presidency, m a j i styl<- and temper that would nimo.-i msgracr me lownt journal, the meanest newspaper, in the smallest village pothouse in the country. Wliat is the duty of Congress, as laid down in th Constitution 1 If it not to diaenss publie tii'-asures, and d< ride on ihem with randor. manliness and puttr ' | '1 In wlntiw of a Ptoaideni i? 11 yet belt re '' them. Neither the Senate nor the House of KepreneiiUtivfn ean decide whether < h ncral Taylor I or fieneral Caw, or any oiher man, is to be I'r.'ni[| d? ni ?f i!.ih country, until the p II h made their opinions known at th? polls, next No- ! vember. Congress is impudently, unconstitutton- I ally and disgracefully anticipating the union ?>f the jieople, and endeavoring to select a President if for the next four years, or in giving a cue to the public at large as to how the people shall exercise I i their rights as voters. We except hardly a single member of thut body, who mingles in these debates, from the legitimate censure which hi conduct deserves in ?uch disrussions. The tables of both houses groan under the weight ol bills nnd repoits on the practical affairs ol the nation. The ' new territorial acquisitions require highly important legislation, on which depend the peace, the F happiness, and the union of these States ; and yet, I 11 the nnti-t in '-Ins ijuantity ol ban [ before both booses, it is melancholy to observe l| tin most res|s-ctable no mi>< t i <i? jf? bates with the rarae folly, and baste, and exciters went. as we sometimes see the Spovten i I n to the menagerie of Tammany Hull, or a rowdy meeting on |H?- CiuiaJ street pliin. Asmmmkiit ok Cokciriiss.?According to all spjieurano?, Congo-* will not adjourn lot six weeks, or two months, yet. They have been in wmiou over seven month*; and what have they done * Absoluti Jy nothing. Perhaps there never was Met) a Congress ns the present ?one which Ills ^ wasted so much time to no account, and consumed if ?he money of t!*e nation without doing any work, f I? ? truly th? "taikinf Congress." TiiKlitiMi ann tiif.iu Ahtaibb.?We are overwhelmed with letters, articled, and communications, of all kinds and, from all sorts of persons, relative to the crisis of affairs in Ireland, and the best mode of giving liberty and happiness to the liit-h ptoplc. Some of these communications come from Signer Mooney, the historian, as he calls himself, varying all down to Signor Spooney, the loafer, who lives on it. The most of them, however, overlook one thing?while they wa^te prodigious energy on fine sentiments, noble rcsolvcs and ustonishing patriotism, they forget the belly. The great want of the Irish is that of full stomachs ; at present, they have empty stoni tehs i and nothing to put tp them. You may publish | speeches, make orations, and sign declarations, and do every thing of that description ; but if a man has nn empty stomach, from the beginning to lilt- end of the week, and little or nothing to put ! into it, the other muterials will go for mere leather and prunella. A boiling pot is better than boiling patriotism. The truth of the mutter is this?the vast amount of Irish patriotism which ex|Jodes in New York, is most generally utter humbug. All these associations are got up by a few interested indivfdu-tls, for the purpose of collecting money to fill theirown pockets and line their own stomachs, instea 1 of going to work und earning wages, like honest men. They never will do anything to relieve Ireland from her misery, or raise the condition of her race across the water. If ever that beautiful isle is to contain a happy and contented population, such a state of being must be brought about by theirown i artion, their own impulse, and their own energy. All the sympathy meetings in the world can effect no good tor Irish liberty, or fill their stomachs. > The American jieople made their own resolves, j started on their own hook, fought on their own 1 hook, and finished on their own hook?nod here I 1 f *i we are now, a nation of twenty millions, e jjoying all the comforts of life in existence. If there were nna.iiinity, energy, determination and real patrii otism within the shores of Ireland itself, they | could accomplish the same which the Americans did in 1776. All the aid that can be given from this country amounts to a mere drop in the bucket, j If Ireland is to be free, she must fight it out her- j srlf; she has men enough, energy enough, and nerve enough, if properly collected and directed. With these views, we cannot resist the convic- I i tion that all the Irish meetings got up here are . nothing but humbngs, and intended to deceive and i cheat the people out of their money, lor the ser- 1 : vices of a few idle fellows, who are too lazy to ' work. Tiik Telegraphic Companies.?We have had i many enquiries addressed to us of late, relative to j j the electric telegraph companies, as to how far they arc dividend-paying concerns. We w ish" that we j had some information to give in reply to these 1 j ?nquiries; hut we must plead much ignorance, and ! | great want of knowledge, on tilts subject. We observe, however, in some of the papers, i ; that the Atlantic and Ohio Telegraph Company ! has declared a dividend of eight percent, out of 1 the profits ol the last six months, payable at 20J ! South Front street, Philadelphia, on the 18th inst. | This company, we believe, was organized by Mr. I O'Reilly; and as far as our memory serves us, it is the only telegraph concern that has declared any ! dividend at all. More than two years ago we sub scribed lor a certain amount ot stock to the lioston and New York Company. For the two past years this company has been doing a good business; and ! yet we have never heard of any dividend being made I out of ilie profits, to this day. We have not even 1 en able to discover the slightest fact in relation to the management. During the last year its business must have been very profitable, having as 1 much to do as all the operators can attend to. Yet there has not been any evidence of the least dis' position on the part of the managers of the company, to give the stockholders any information, or : to declare imy dividend whatever. Jfeully, these telegraphic associations and com- j j panics are curious concerns. They are extremely useful and wonderful in their day; but those who have subscribed to their stock arc beginning to feel wonder of another kind, and that is, where doc s the money go to 1 What becomes of it 1 Whoare the managers 1 What are the profits made 1 To whom are they paid 1 Who gets the benefit of the 7 tie.. nrn. bablv, give niore patronage to these concerns than any other two newspaper establishments in the country. All their bills are regularly and honestly paid when presented, and yet the shares which we ! hold in the Boston company have never, up to this t moment, y ielded the first red cent of profits or in- j tercet, while, at the same time, we have been paying very high prices for their operations. Who is ' the manager of the Boston company ? Do tell. Tiik Great Buffalo Convention.?The conj vention which is to assemble at Buffalo on the I !hh of next month, will be a great, curious, magnificent, and, probably, startling concern. The | convention will consist of representatives from | all the free States in the Fnion?fifteen in number | ?comprising a concentration of all kinds of anti! Southern men, ranging from those of the Wilinot proviso to total abolition. Mow the convention is to be organized is not so clear. Many dele1 gates, no doubt, will be self-elected, or, rather, i self-nominated. Many different shades of opinions j will pervade the whole concern. The old aboli| tionists?those who belong to the sixty thousand faithful of 1844?do not want to let Mr. Van Burnt, j the new abolitionist, come into the concern and drive the coach. < >n the other hand, the Kinderhook politician wants to take the reins in his own hands, and whip up the whole team, and for his I own benefit. There will l>e a vast concourse of 1 delegates, amateurs, jtolhiciane, and everything i else, at Buffalo, on the 9th of August. If Mr. Van Burcn gets the nomination, he may obtain an overwhelming and cxttrordinary vote in the fifteen free States. But, at all events, whoever may be nominated?whether it be Mr. Van Buren, , or Mr. Hale, orsome|other man?this movement is ' calculated utterly to demolish the prospects of ( Gc ;:ernl Cass and the hunker branch of the democratic party.

Tho-?e two pijxis are a portion i f the dying embers of the last gf-n 'ration, and of the lust centnry. They are two stnnted trees in a etnte of decay. A single newsboy, in a single ward, will di.-tubute and circulate us ininy sheets of the Utrald us either of those journals has subscribers. To publish advertisements, or to do puffery, nf any price, 111 these vehicle ?,"is the same us to bury tbem and keep them out of sight of the p? ople. But what right hnve the Corporatioif to expend money for such purposes ! What authority hnve they to throw away the taxes contributed hy the people, to keep up such ricketty concerns as those papers are, without talent, circulation, or energy! And how is it done! We sec an announces ment by the Comptroller that he will receive money on dejwnit. giving six per cent.interest, in anticipa ti< n of the (axes; hut nothing under two hundred and fitty dollars will be received. I'robahly this notice may induce a great many to pay their taxes in advance, for the benefit of the interest; but to say nothing of such act being in violation of law, it is manifestly a breach of prudence in the money officer of the Corporation, to call, or have to call, such money into his coders. Probably the thousand dollars thrown away on these rieketty pai>ers, for the l>enefit of their puflery, muy have arisen from a superabundance of money, thus collected unlawfully Ly the Comptroller, and lying in theooff is of the Corporation. We do really want a new government for this city already, und new men to take the places of the old. Theatrical niici Musical* Bowkrv Theatre.?The house, last evening, was finely attended. The first tier was crowded with elegantly attired ladies and gentlemen, and the other parts of the house were crowded with a most respectable audience.

The entertainment* were highly attractive. and commenced with tho popular farsetta of "My Nelghber'a "Wife," which was well represented by an effective cast. Smith by John Scfton. and Mrs. Scinvrton by Miss Kate Horn, were well sustained. Tbe now serio-comic ballet, produced under tho direction of Mr Schmidt, ballet master, entitled " Diablo Bougc." was again repeated. The various incidents, the tricks, tran-formation*, dances?It. which Mdlio. Adelaide was excellent?and entire representation by tbe < <>) ;.? rfr ballet, were loudly applauded by a delighted audience. Tho gymnastic exorcists, flights and feats by M. Marcetti were performed with n*tonishing power and ability. Altogether tho entertainments passed off with much eclat. The Lehman Family and Mons. Marrettl will ngaiu appear on Monday evening Miss Roso Telbin will also appear here lor tbe fust time in a popular vaudeville. Broauww Theatre.?i he second night of the reappearance of the excellent bullet company of Monplnisir went off. last evening, in the most brilliant style, and before a very numerous audience. The performance of " L'Almee." < r an oriental vision, was rendered at this splendid theatre, with a series of scenes, properties and dresses, scarculy ever equalled in any other theatre in our city. Great applause wa-. of course bestowed, by the large assembly to Mr. and Mrs. Monplaisir, whoeo Icgfrrti. ability and souplesse. are. indet d. astonishing They arc Dot only the best matched couple for dancing, but they understand one another so weiljthat they s-em. whilst dancing, to form the same body. The celebrated "/Cingarilla.*' which, when the company tlrit appeared in Saw i ortc, wus every night received with such noisy hursts of applause. was danced by there elegant artiste* with a verve which elicited for th-.m as many plaudits as bouquets; and they wire enthusiastically encored at its termination. Miss Anua Bnlau, a very pi'/uante brunttte, received also much applause, as well as Mr. Corby, and Messrs. Grotti and Cornet. The corps de ha ltd is composed of very pretty young girls, who perform with great exactitude their fairy evolutions. In short, the bullet of L'Almee is got up very brilliantly, and will be repeated this evening. The beautiful French ballet of * he Diable ii quatre " is in rehearsal, and will be performed early next week. Chatham Theatre.?We were much pleased last evening to tlndsnch a crowded house on the oceasion of the Misses Benin's benefit.

We need not hay that tho performances gave great satisfaction last evening. They always do that at tbo < hatliam.

This evening, .".'its Muetayer takes her benefit. This young actress, during her preseut engagement, has given the greatest satisfaction. As the dtdinoatress of the New 1 ork girl, she is inimitable, and as a general actress she is alio unsurpaisod. No less than four pieces will be played to-night, and Barney Williams will appear in two of them, viz., as O'tialiugher. in the " Bashful Irishman." and O'SbaUghnes y, in tho "Hundred Bound Note." Miss Mcstayer will appear as Jane t'batterly. in the " WiJow's Victim."

Besides ail this. Barney VV illiams and Miss Delora'ne will dance an Irish jig. so that the bill, tAken altogether, is one of tho greatest of the season. We do not doubt that it will draw a full house. Caiti.f.

What part of thia amount ia a ready appropriated, doer not appear; but it wilt probably lake more than thin sum to mi-et the eipannes already iucmred, and the indemnity due the government of Mexico. It is not, however, probable that another loan w ill have to be contract-, d, as the eurplns n venoeLw ill, in the ronr-e of a jear or so, be sufficient to liquidate whatever small inde! teloess may be outstanding after the funds now in hand have been expended. It is, therefore. >af? to consider the abovenamed rum as the extent of the debt of the country. This will be reduced from time to time, by the payment of Treasury notes into thu government depositories. A debt of sixty-live millions of dollars is a mere baga, telle for rucli a natiou as this; and from our ordinary ' resources we clrali be able to pay every f vac lion of the principal, long before it reaches maturity. Tlfe ordinary expenditures of the government, including interest on thu public debt, are about twenty-foar millions of dollars per annum, while the ordinary revenno is about thirty millions of dollars, leaving a surplus or six millions of dollars auuually for the payment of Mm public debt. The loans recently negotiated have twenty years to run; it is, therefore, plainly to be seen that our sinking fond will exceed the debt long before it r< aches maturity.

'J'lils limited increase in 1848 over 1847, oan be aceountt d for in the very groat decrease in the freight- ' ing business of the company. In the lattet part of 1846. and early of the year 1847, the transportation of flour und wheat over this load was immense, and the receipts consequently unusually large. In August, 1847, prices for breadstuff* began to depreciate. and the foreign demand to decline, when the receipts from the interior, or along tbo line of the railroad, commenced falling off.

This is tiie only part of the busiucss of this company which i ns declined; and the oaoMS producing such a demand for, and extensive movement in, breadstuff's last year, were of suoh an artificial character that a reaction was expected, and has been realised. With such a deficiency in the amount of freight (.(Ti ring fur transportation, it is strange that the aggregate income of the company shows any is- * crease at all. Thcie has been a very great increase in the passenger business of the road. Siuco January last, '25.484 passengers have been carried over trie road, against '20,040 for tbo corresponding period the previous year. The nrraDsenirnt* of the line are ail of the bestcharacter, and the freighting department judloously managed Since this work fell into tho 1 and* of Exstern capitalists, it has been worked by Eastern engineers; and tiie universal Yankee genius, energy, industry, and indomitable persoverencc hare been called into requisition for the purpose of putting the coneerv. upon a sound and solid foundation. That they have succeeded in so doing, is pretty clearly illustrated by the above rep irt of receipts, &e , for the past three years. hince the last meeting, a loan of $1,100,009, payable in bonds running from tire to ten years, and bearing interest nt 8 per cent, and one of $800,000, payable la |.itooUIU VUU1I ut OI JIDUUJ, until maturity, into stock at par, and bearing the same Interest, have buen made.

It in confidently expi clod that a dividend will be made In December next, fully iijual to the last year's. Between Detriot and Jackson. 45 miles of the road have been re-laid with the heavy rail. If the iron arrives promptly, it l? expected the whole of this will be re laid by the middle of September next. The distance to Jackson is now 77 milos; but by tbc decrease in distance to the new terminus at Detroit, and by tbc new lines in the Huron vuilcy, it will be reduced to ubout st-Tcnty-four mile". All the long bridges upon the first fifty miles from Detroit, will be lebuilt this reason. Tho fonr principal bridges across the Kalamsr.oO bare already been ref built, and the depot building" at Nilos, and between that place tjiul Kalamazoo, are in a forward state.
