In c insen'Jeuee of this, bills on I'aris are iu fact good for nothing to thia clvr1' cf merchants. It matters not to thein how good the bill is. how solvent the parties dnwing.or those upon vrhom It is drawn, they cannot demand the specie fjr it in Tarls. and must take, if offered, bills of the Bank of FrRncc.

Domestic exchange* continue quiet, and there is no material alteration to report in the rates ; they are all in favor of this city, and probably will remain so until the new criJJis c< meforward mint rupidly than the old have for the past six months.

Many of the securities have slightly declined, and the market, altogether, is less buoyant and less active. Capital was not so abundant, at either of the previous periods, as it is now, and the position of financial and commercial affairs generally was not so satisfactory or en- ' couraglDg as it is at present. Still, prices for stocks generally were higher, and operations were to a much greater extent. We attribute the existing inactivity almost entirely to the scarcity of capitalists and speculators in the market. The oppressively not woacuer has driven all who could get away, Into the country and to the different watering places; and those stil| left at the Board of Brokers, and in the street, evince no disposition to do anything; and there is, therefore, very little going on among the bulls and the bears. We have noticed, for the past month, a gradual growth CI public connuence, anu a pieauy improvement in me money market, Indicative ol the return of better times. If nothing transpires to check there favorable movements, by the time our city is again filled with the absentee*, the principal elements of trade will once more he in a healthy condition. The only dark spot now visible in the commercial horizon, is that hanging over Ireland. Should that increase, and spread over Great Britain, we must expect a revolution in financial as great as that which would bo realized in political affairs. The Messrs. Barings' circular of the 28th ult. says : <> In American stocks the transactions eontinue uuimportant, and we have no change whatever to notice in prices."

The Close i f the Sessinn Oregon?Gen Shields. The session has closed amidst loud inanifestatlo i* of a bitterness of feeling between the North and o South, inflation to Oregon not equalled even la lie summer of 1M0, after tho ratification of the OfJ n treaty. 'Ibis morning, after a fierce struggle th? rules were suspended, so an to permit the bill p ted yeeterdny, to noeive the action cf the I'r sident; and the Oregon bill, together with a number of other measures, ut< nee became law, by receiving the 1.xocutivo approval. Thus, the laws of tho United States have Dcen extended over Oregon at last inn nomination | of Gen. Shields as Jovemor of the territory, has been confirmed, and provision 1b made for the government > of a country which, since it first became the subject of a diplomatic struggle with Great Britain, has been re- j garded with us much affectionate interest by the whole Amnican people as any State in the Union Of whatever completion bo the provisions the bill contains, its pas.-age will afford, both to the North and to the South, the warmest satisfaction. Admitting the honesty and sincerity of the motives of those who endeavored todefcat the measure, and, moreover admitting the unworthiness of the motives of some of those who acted in support of it, It must, nevertheless,be a subject of general congratulation, that the efforts to arrest its passage have so signally tailed. Personally, there was a fierce struggle between Mr. Benton and Mr. Calhoun, on this question. I by no mt&'is say that Mr. Calhoun asked too much, in the first place, in demanding a recognition of the Missouri compromise, (and the oonduct of those who, like Mr. Breese, for political motives, voted on both sides of that question, cannot he too strongly condemned,) but he certainly did demand too much, lu trying to defeat ihe bill because it did^iiot contain that recognition. He was disposed to defeat it this morning by indirect means; and for that purpose, it would seem, the only man who would lend himself, Hopkins L. Turney, was employed to talk out the session ; but Mr. Webster promptly defeated this scheme, by calling the vulgar Teuncsseeau to order. Mr. Kooie, after consulting with Ilia Southern friends, declared that having exhausted all honorable means of defeating the measure, in consequence of the insertion of the obnoxious clause, they could not stoop to the employment of indiriot means, (such as that attempted by Mr. Turney.) and therefore he was authori/.ed. in the name of the South, to withdraw all further opposition. And thus, although it certainly was in the power of the South to defeat tho bill, it became a law, by their voluntarily withdrawing opposition which they f> It they could not. as men of houor, maintalu. I trust the Northern men will never give* proof that this manly and chivalrous course cannot find a response from them. Oregon is provided for. and now let there be broad and ample concession even to Ihe sensitiveness of the South, il it amount to nothing more. As to a Souther n convention now. it is not to be thought of, nor will it be thought of. I have been assured by many Southern men in the Senate, who have sustained Mr. Calhoun through tho whole progress of this debate, that they are totally opposed to making any issue with the North at present?not because they are not as realous for tho honor and interests of the South as wir. twuuuu mill) t-ii, nut uvruuiw tuey uii not oelieve a necei-eity at present exists for such a course. Mr. Calhoun anil his friends have maintained a bold, steady, and resolute light to the lust; aud although they hare been worsted, they have lost nothing, for the reason thi y had nothing to lose. The South has lost nothing by the passage of this bill. The constitutional question, to be sure, as to the power of Congress to inhibit slavery, is of the same applicability in theory at 32 degrees north latitude, as at <t'J; but the practical application is not the same. To borrow a legal figure, although the South has been worsted on a preliminary plea, the cause la yet to be tried on its merits. The most sadly crest-fallen and disconsolate man in the Senate is Mr. Fhelps of Vermont, this day. I'lacod on Mr. Clayton's compromise committee, and thus arawn within the immediate influence of the blandishments ef Mr. Calhoun, ho was seduced into an absolute abandonment of all his New Lnglaud notions, and made to go as far in favor of the propagation of the peculiar institution of the South, as the South Caroliua Senator had ever gone. Awakened to a consciousness of his position by the voice of the Northern press, he made several desperate attempts to justify his course to bis constituents. He declared the press knew nothing about the bill or its provisions. Toe bill failed, however, aud ho was reduced to a most awkward position. The passage of the Oregon bill, perfected to day, .with the ordinance of 17b7, by such an immense majority?with the support of two or three Southern Senators?must render him particularly miserable. His constituents may very reasonably ask, by what authority from them he has become the supporter of opinions which even Southern men cannot justify. 1 have reason to doubt whether General Shields will aecept the Governorship of Oregon. I believe be was not consulted ; neither were bis friends in Congress. 1 I,..,,, )u .... ii,.. i,., i',... i ....... * * > ?? """"" ' ?" ? ?"? ""?>'? "~s ?" move him from competition with Mr. Breese for a Heat in tbe Senate of the United States. There is no man so popular in Illinois, at present, as General Shields; and no man more unpopular, or more deservedly so, than Mr Breese. The latter is an especial tool and friend of Mr. Polk ; and there can be little doubt General Shields owes his nomination to Mr. Breese. Such is one amoag the many moves on the political chess-board. GALVIEN3IS. Wabhishto.v, Aug. 13,1848. Congreit. The Oregon bill has at length passed. The session is virtually at an end, and Congress will adjourn tomorrow, leaving an amount of unfinished business Kieater than has ever been neglected by any former Congress. The conduct of both houses, and more especially of the Senate, deserves, and will no doubt receive,the severest censure. 'Twas but this morning that the latter body consented to extend our laws over Oregon, having sat up all n'ght to exhibit a foolish spirit of antagonism on a question in nowise connected with the hill. The South determined to speak (he cession out, but they failed. Last night it was the determination of Mr. Calhoun's friends to remain until noon of to-morrow, and to occupy all the time in talking, thus to defeat the bill. It wyisfld appear that this schema was abandoned. On both sides of this quemtion there has been exhibited tbe most ridiculous pertinacity. There was no DricoiDle involved. Both Northern tand Southern umu admitted that slavery could not exist In Oregon, and the exhibition waa therefore wholly unnecessary. On the other hand, tha inhibition could npt prejudice the South for the name reason. The Insertion of a clause recognising the Missouri compromise line could not haee jeoparded theinteresta of the North in anyof the uew territories, nor could its exclusion from the bill jeopard the interest* of the South. In fact, there waa no momentous issue involved to cause snch a struggle. The extreme adToratea of slavery had not the sympathy of their own friends In the war which they threatened should the bill paaa in the shape in which it came from the House. Mr. Houston, in his speech yesterday, ridiculed the sentiments of Mr Calhoun and his friumla, end declared, there as jet exists no necessity for this bitterness of feeling against the North There is no doubt that his position is impregnable, lie agrees with Mr. Bell, that if a struggle is to come, this is not the issue on which it should he waged. The ultra Southern men cannot sustain the position they hare taken. A Southern convention they may hold, but the South will not jeopard the Union. on the false issue raisi d hjthe fanatics. Mr. Calhoun humbles himself and his party too much, in putting himself in antagonism to the associates of Kreder'ck Liouglasa There is no cause for all the excitement: as vet (here has Wen nothing done to prejudice the interests of the South. Ail this frothy indiguation is therefore supelfluous As might be expected, the scenes on tho floor of the Senate during this debate were amusing sir Houston's speech called forth lerrihle indignation froin the friends of Mr. Caihoun. During Mr Webster's speech, Mr. Dickinson might he observed talking and laughing very loud, as if the eloquence Listened to with such breathless attention wir# beneath his notice a common practice with liim since his temerity called down upon hi? head the ti rrible and eti tiK< n*< castigation he receivtd Jrom the Massachusetts Senator some two year* ago l.ater in'the night a treiic occurred, wliich I will leave to others the unenviable ta-k of depicting. The transaction* of the la; t day and night ara sufficient to convince anybody of tbe great necessity that exist" of expelling frotn the Senate many of those who now disgrace the body. Mr. Cameron has returned, seemingly well pleated with th" success of hi* negotiations in ('"tmsylvania. Mr. lireese has, ho thinks, succeeded, by bis veto on the Missouri compromise, in Mending his competitors. Mr. Davis, of Mississippi, is Riving strong indications of a disposition to come round totho support of Cass. Mr. lienton is exemplifying, more and more every day. tbe truth of Mr. llannrgan's hypothesis. Speaking of Mr. Ilannegan, I am led to notice the inaccuracy of his statement in the case of a claim by a Mr. Anderson for extra compensation as Ckarti near the Krench Court, while the then minister. Mr. Cass, was on a pilgrimage to the Holy I.and. Mr. Hannegan said the bill came recommended from the State Denartment. It did not come recommended rrom the State Department, the lion J of that department being opposed to the claim, an irregular GALVIKNSIS. WaaHivoTov, August 14, 1848. The Oregon Hill and Slavery. The agony i* oyer? the long session has terminated - and ere this many of the prominent actora are naking their way as fast as they can from thin hot, lusty, overgrown village. The scenes presented In 10th houses, as the meridian hour drew near, were inlque.
