The nresa is ileiiiandin the attention of t'omrress to the absolute necessity ot inviting the west extensive colonization into the country, with the view of protecting it from further nemUMatl from the North To promote immigration, it is insisted that religious toleration must be at once conceded in lull. Mexican journalists appear to be thoroughly awake to the danger ta which tht ir nationality is exposed by their juxtaposition with our more intelligent, iudustrious, and enterprising i oople The very name of Mexico will be obliterated, they urge, by the tide of civilization, unless their government arouses and enacts such reforms as ore called for by the spirit of the age ? ?V.

Tbere is no change in United States sixes this morning ; but T.'eaury Notes fell oil' J?; Harlem ltailroad declined ??' ; Long Island, '4 ; Farmers' Trust, }? \ F.rie Railroad improved )i. Only $1600 in specie were shipped in the America' which sailed to-day. Congress has at last adjourned. After a session 0^ more than eight months, the combined leg! lative wis dom of the nation has been distributed?not to be again concentrated until after the close of the Presidential campaign. In the meantime, the movements marked out by the leaders cf both, or all three, political parties will be perfected. It would hare been much better for the public treasury, and for the country at largo, had Congress adjourned six months ago, and the members hare carried out among their constituents, at their own expense, those measures which hare occupied their time at the seat of gorernment. at a cost to the country of eight dollars a day. Kor the past three months, at least, rery little has been done at Washington but manufacture public opinion for and against the different aspirants to the presidential chair. Senators nnd Ileprusentatirrs hare been runniogatl over the country lonttend public meetings; and yet these individuals are the rery ones mos opposed to an early adjournment of Congress. The entire business of the session ?that in which tile people hare really an interest?was pot oil to the last week or tiro cf the session, and then hurried through in pitch imperfect rhapes, that alterations und modifications will he required early after the opening of the next term. Many mportaut bills hare been laid orer, and eoreral important interests of the country are suffering from tha want of proper lcgislatire action. These haTe not been neglected for the want of timo, for eight months la a ncriod loinr enough to period and pass hills sulll cient to answer all purposes lor the next ten years. There is only one way to do away with this waste of time and money, which is that adopted by the legislature* of several States?the reduction of pay in proportion to the length of the'session. so that, after a cer tain time, the pay ceases altogether. If members of Congress received eight dollars a day for the first month, six lor the second, and four for the third, we should never have a session more than tlirco months' long ; there would be no long session, as it is now correctly called, hut both the long and the short session would clf u on or about tlie first of March in each year. Touch their pay, and you touch their patriotism. Members of Congress are governed more by the almighty dollar than their anxiety to serve their aountry. A meeting"of the stockholders of the Heading Railroad Company was holden at Philadelphia, a few days since, for the purpose of taking into consideration the policy of converting another portion of its debt Into preferred stock, it is stated, sayg tho /.< <lKrr, that the new Heating debt of the company is to be funded in pruferrt d dock at .')0 per Cent discount J and that tile takers of the loan of 1847, for the liquidation of the old floating debt. who. by original agreement were to hare received tv.e million bonds at 70 per cent, but (itemed it prudent in consequence of certain legal proceedings, to receive for the time being, fourteen hundred thousand lit par, have been voted their doftrird tbiity par rent in old stock, equivalent to an iucrmre of twelve thousand iliares at f.50 each.

We have partly estimated the imports and export for the year ending June 30, 1848. According t< ofllcial reports, the imports for nine months ending March 31,1848, were $5,100,158 ; from that time to Juno 30, they were so limited that we have put down $5,000,COO for tTe year, and double that sum as the amount of exports. The returns for the other years included in the table arc ofllcial. We must add at least $17,000,000 to the above, as the amount of specie brought into the oountry in the same period, by emigrants, making a total of fifty millions of dollars in tpf.it, received since the last great explosion in our banking system. This accession to our supply of the precious metals, with that which has been drawn from our own mines, has made a vast difference in the value of the currenoy, strengthened the banks, and enabled the government to carry into successful operation one of the best financial systems ever invented. It has placed us In a more independent [position in regard to other conntrieB, and has given a great impetus to our most vital interests. By increasing the value of our currency, it has prevented those enormous Importations of foreign manufactures which, under an inflated paper currency, prices which have shut out more effectually than any t tariff, similar articles of foreign manufacture. Our p exports have increased, and that branch of our for- I j eign trade has been more profitable than ever before. ! t Altogether, a wonderful improvement has been realised " within the past six years in everything connected with ] the external and internal commerce of the country, 0 which we attribute principally, we might say with j, truth almost entirely, to the changes which have i within that time been made in the financial systems I of the government and in the currency. 1 Stock Kxcliange Jd'SOO Trean Notes.

Imi' Night in the Senate on the Oregon Ihll. *' S'ului iivfiuli e^i'teinu ett le *' We bei.eve this is the motto of Senator Alien; <tud upon thin idea, in our application, that the welfare of the people in the supreme law, we propose to speak, in a brief explication of the live-long Saturday night, on the Oregon b'll It was not one of the' \orte? Ambrosianm," nor one of the nights of the Arabian Tales; but the (lay and the night, and the next morning, were like that day which every theatrical supernumerary honestly believes kto have icon big (I. e ma-nit) with the fate of C.'i'farand of Koine. Saturday, the lJth of August? Saturday night and Sunday morning as an unit?comprehended tb longest, and perhaps th mont important fitting of the Senate since the orga nidation of Congress. True, it wag the r- mlt of that exciting night, when the Texaa annexation w.ixparted hy two whig votes?it had nothing to do with thi) whig tariff of '42, passed by two democratic votes, nor with the democratic tariff of '4tJ, parted by one whig vote; itut the last night oi) the Oregon bill, niglil in aud night out, wax the result of that laH night in the Texax annexation, and of that nigltt of the dd of March. 1HC>; Sunday night, too, wlien. adopting the absolute plan, John Tyler, under cover of darku-es, rent lux messenger down to Texaa, iieurlng in his train all the Lorrorx of death on the pale hone. The war with Mexico, the treaty of ?>?udalupe Hidalgo, the acquisition of a fertile xlip on the I'ncitic audu vaxt interior hunting wilderness, have had, an the legitimate incidents of the l'exan annexation a direct influence upon this last night ou the Oregon bill. Two sessions ago. after the understanding that Oregon fur the North wax to be an olV-et to 1'exax for tha South, a bill from tin House came into the Senate; and then, for the lirxt time, the South ruined the constitutional question of the jurisdiction of Congress over slavery in Oregon Mr. Ilerrieu. of the judiciary committee. held fust to the lull for souie weeks, and thus it was lost. At about the same time. Mr i ulhoun introduced his resolutions, declaring the equal rights of the South to a participation iu the settlement aud benefits of occupation of the territories of the Cnltfd. State*. On the mme day, Mr. lieuton declared those resolution*. "a string of abstractions ?a firebrand thrown into our councils to net the world on tiro " Then tho issue was made hetwec i Mr. Calhoun and Col. teuton, on thu Oregon question; and two sessions after, on Monday morning, at 12 o'clock, 14th August. 1848, at the last hour of thu long Mission, thu eagle of victory perched upon thu banners of Old Bullion. We have nothing now toiay of thu debate of Saturday?of thu conservative speech of Gun. |Houston, coming so gratefully from a Texas Senator; nor of thu fmrv /iruiiunciaiiieiilv of Mr. Calhoun, Mr. Ileroshut V Johnson, Mr Heverdy Johnson, Mr. Koote, and others, during the day; nor of the night speech of that illustrious pleader of the constitution. Daniel Webster, that capacious and mighty intellect of America. It is the scene of the night, and the causes and re suits of the conflict, witii which we have to deal. '1 lie issue, limited to two iiihd, was an issue between Benton and Calhoun. The direct question in dispute was the question of the exclusion of slavery from Oregon. Now. we take it for granted that Col. Benton, Judge Douglass and others, knew the temper of the House in the outset, upon this question at this session. Col. Demon declared that he supported the Clayton bill because the territories wanted governments, and that something was better than nothing. Kvon in their concessions upon thut bill, the South admitted the untensbleness of their position, for they prescribed the legislation of the territories over a question, upon which they asserted they had no power to legislate at all. It is slill our impression, that had the Senate acted promptly in adopting the Missouri compromise, that it might heve passed the House. After the announcement of the AuIThIo liuut, and after the meeting of the Buffalo Convention, the hope was utterly extinguished. And the declaration of the select committee, that the South were not satisfied with the Missouri compromise line, because it gave the lion's share to the North, of itself extinunislieil ranidlv the remaining smirk* of Nrrtbetn generosity, and concentrated the elements of the Wilmot proviso. The very declaration ef oar unequal share betrayed the expectations of the South in the bill of the select committee, and roused the opposition with which the plan was overwhelmed in the House. When the Oregon bill, from the House, was reported by .Mr Douglass, of the Committee on Territories, he lualitied the proviso with the s?lvo that it was because I he territory lay north of the Missouri comrromise line. That was something. Mr. Downs saw that it was iomething. it was an admission of the prinsiple, if not an application of It. Mr. Mason a as not thus to be appeased. lie asked, now, when it was too late, that the compromise line, be carried through to the I'acitic, with the guarantee of slavery south of the line Mr. Douglass moved that as an amendment. Mr Mason was delighted? the South were overjoyed at this concession of the very terms which they had refused. Hut Mr. Douglass looked to the end of the game?he foresaw the action of the House, and that the return of the bill, with the compromise expunged, would limit the question to Oregon and the proviso; and that, after the concessions they had made, every northern man in the Senate, with Denton to head the entire column, would join upon the ordinance for Oregon; and that a government consistent with the expressed wi.h of the people of Oregon, would thus be secured to them, without an apology for conceding their wishes. Now wo come to the point. Tho bill came back without the compromise. A line run 400 miles below Oregon, had nothing to do with Oregon. So said Col. Benton. Dut he voted to submit that line to the House. Why? Because bo knew tiiat the House would reject it, and that, on the return of the bill, the question to recede would bring every man of the North, Mr. Dickinson and all, to tho exact question, and the exact boundaries of Ongon. The House disagreed to tho compromise?they so re ported tbe bill back upon the Senate; and bright and early on Saturday morning, Col. Benton moved torerede. Now. air, this brought him directly to the longimpended issue with .Mr Calhoun, and they both lav t at a flash, and each took his position?the one the dlenslve and the other defensive. Napbleon tells ns hat the secret of victory into attack, and keep your nitagonist constantly on the defensive, The forcee acre skilfully trained on both Hides; but with the lighting of the chandelier, it was evident that the exptdient of postponing the vote wiih the plan resolved upon for defeating the hill. Col Benton promptly reined the lirst Indication of the piny, and the motion to adjourn at twelve at night,by Mr. Turuey, proved that the Senator from Missouri was in for the session or for a vote on the bill. Mr. Butler then moved an exicutive session, on a question, as the motion implied. involving the honor of the Senator from Missouri 'I he object of Mr Butler was. by every expedient of legislation, to stave off tbe Oregon bill to the Inst moment, het us see the sum of the provocation jf this motion. It bns been pretty clearly demonstrated tbat Mr. Duller has sought every favorible opportunity to drive Old Bullion to tbe ultiiia nihil It is understood tbat he ramo here with be avowed object of avenging the wrongs of Mr. Cnlloun, who is as bold as a lion as aleglslator, yet per anally as harmless as a lamb, lie is a non-eomtiatnnt. and Mr. Ilutler, as we understand, imagining that Col llenton had heretofore ta'en advantaj^of this fact, in his discussions with Mr. Calhoun, determined tube avenged in b-balf of his colleague on the tir.-t opportunity. We have remarked that lie has frequently sought to give the Missouri Senator occasion lor a disputation ; hut that the latter, as if aware of the object, has disregarded tbe bait thrown out to catch him. Butfhore was the bill fur Oregon. Col. Benton, In his well-known letter, had pledged the people of Oregon that they should have a government 'the bill was balanced in the scales. 'I he Iofs of an hour might lose the bill, and give the triumph to Mr. ' alboun.| Mr. Mason, as well ns Mr. Berrien, seconded the motion for an execuLive .-esslon. Mr. Mason has a relative (Col. Mason) n California, who had some difficulty with Kremont, 'Xteriding to the vergu of a duel. Mr. Muson opposed :he California claim*, as reported from the Military Committee; and even after the bill passed the Senate, an limn reason to suppose that <olonel Denton believed it was South t'aroliua and Virginia influence ill at defeated it In the House. We hare reason to believe that all then? things flashed at once upon the niludoff oh.m l Denton, with the motion for an executive ses-iou, to sit in judgment on his conduct.
