It will be seen by the reports ol the debates published in this day's Herald, that the subject of the annexu'ion oi the island ut Cuba to the United States, has produced c.uite an excitement in Congress. When it was first broached in the columns of this journal, some of our cotemporuries attempted to throw discredit over our statements, and ridiculed the idea as much as they could The truih is, however, that all we stated concerning the matter, are fixed facts. From the character of this debate, and the persons who took a hand in it, it seems there is a strong party in Congresa in favor of the annexation of that island; and one of the members of the Senate went so far a> to say that General Taylor, the President elect, was committed in favor ot it. This subject, we have no doubt, will be much agitated in Congress and throughout the country dur- * ing the ensuing tour years; and in connection with the slavery question, it may produce results which no one can anticipate at the present time. There is a strong disposition in the Southern States in favor ot the annexation of this beautiful island, but the North is just us much opposed to it, on slavery grounds. Between this time and the lth of March, 1852, the question muy be carried in Congress, simultaneously with the annexation of Canada. By this double measure the North and the South wou'd be satisfied, for there would be an equal gain to esch, and the interests and feelings ol each would be balanced. It is certuin that the slavery question, which is creating such a commotion and agitation throughout the country, will never be settled as long asCuba remains in her present position on the one side, and Cunuda on the other. Removal of the Capital to Cincinnati.?In ( order to get rid of the exciting subject of slavery in the District of Columbia, and put it at rest for ever, it is proposed that the wtiole of whit re. mains of that district, after the retrocession of t..at portioB ot it which originally belonged to the State of Virginia, be ceded back to the State of Maryland, Virginia having same time since received her part. The public buildings, and the ground on which they are located, are, however, proceed to be reserved to the use of the United States lor the present. But it seems that this movement is intended only as a |*eliminary measure towards removing the capital to Cincinnati, or some other point we6t ot the Alleghur>ies. This is a measure which, it is contended, will soon be necessary, in consequence ol the great growth and increasing importance of the Northestern and Western Statea. When we reflect upon the great increase of imputation that has been taking place in the Northwest mid West for the last few years, it is very probable*that by the time t!ie next censui | shall have been taken, those regions will be en ] titl< d to as much representation in Congress a ; will exe/cise a controlling influence in the Iegis lation ot the Union. In this point of view, therefore, we would no' ' be surprised if a measure of this kind were carried I into eflect before ten yeais. With the great in I cr? use of population, and the growing importance oi 1 those distant regions, it will be a matter of neces- 1 nit) to huvc the seat of government more centrally situated than it now is in Washington. We are I induced to think too that it would b: a judicious movement The sentiment of the people of that region of the United States, is much stronger in favor ot preserving the integrity of this confederacy, than that of the South generally, or of the nnrtinn of the North: and the removal ol the capital there would nuke that Bentiment still trouper, and have the tendency to add to the permtiiience of the Union, although it might give a prejonderating influence to that portion of the country. This, however, cannot be avoided; influence will increase in the name ratio with population. It it) a happy thing lor the welfare and permanence ol this confederacy, that the sentiment in thone regions is so strong inl*vor of preserving it, and that the ultras of the North and South consist of materials volatile, as well aa being without strength or organization. Jack Frost and tub Opkba ?During the pist week the Opera has become very thin, and the sleighing has been very fine, although Benedetti and Trufii never sung belter. Mr. Fry lias certainly met with a most serious opposition in Jack Frost and the fine sleighing If Jack Frost should continue his opposition for a week longer, we think it probable thgt the Opera will ba shut up altogether. I Mors Cabinet Makino-^-Colokei, Wrrb far Secretary at War.?Our cotemporarice of the prrsi*, throughout the couatry, are still busily engaged in constructing cabinet* for General Taylor, as well as filling the various department* and all the ini| ortunt and profitable posts under the new government. One curiou* stick of timber, thrown up in the recent freshet, which we have seen, is that which we find in a neat country paper, published at Dundee, a small town in Yates county, of this State. It is called ThtJlecorA, and is conducted by E. Iloogland. From its rich and interesting columns we extract the following high hoist, concerning our cotemporary of the Courier and Etu/uirir:?Jiiuti Watson Win ?Few Individuals connected with the press have reoetved a larger share of aatunanv and abuse tbaa the gentleman whose name heads this article : and few. we believe, have been more unjustly assailed or more wantonly attaoked. than Col Weoh But amid all the vituperation heaped upon his devoted bead, ha bae stood up like the ohlvalric gentleman that be is, and laughed his traducers to soorn ? lived abors then, and lived them down. Durinc the recent political campaign he has he an confessedly ths head and froi^t of the Taylor party In thle State; he It wm who ret to* hall lo motion, and immediately after the battles of Palo Alto and Iterant predicted the deration of the General He It was with the indomitable courage and peraereranee for which be la dietlnulebad. that stood for months and mouth* almoat alone to bear up the oau>e of bla farorit* candidate against an opposition snoh ae no candidate has erer before encountered; but there stood <-ol Webb, firm, undaurted reliving hla half-hearted friend*, and dealing blow*, th'ck. feat. and poar-rfu', against hi* opponent* We watched and admired the noble energy and oonsummata ability displayed In warding off attack* and direotlng horns thrusts un">n the enemies of Gen Taylor. Battling firmly f-r his cause and bnrllng defiance to the raging multitude of political trader* arrayed against him. ha ha* triumphed - bis manly cours* was victorious? and to Col Webb more than any other man in the northern section of the Union, la Gen Taylor indebted for hi* nr mination and election During the whole oempafgn be never be mean ?d himself, never descended to low blackguardism, nor onnde?oonded to bandy epithet* with any one but faithfully npheld the dignity of the neweoaper press and the eanae h? had espoused: and could we reach the ear of the President eleot, we would suggest that among all hi* friend*, hs could find none in whose wisdom, prudence, and honor he could more safely confide than In Col. W?hb Al a oabinet counsellor, be could at all times he relied on; as a friend, trusted; and the example should be set ol giving the public pTess a representative In the caSloet. Col. Webb was formerly so offWr f Men'enant?hi* title of Colonel la only a militia matter] in the United S'.stes army, ie skilful a politician t*leuted. and well informed on every subject of government that distinguishes and befits the statesman He would adorn He war office, and do honor to the ailminiit--ation, at welt at good ternite to the country in that position Well done, good fellow. This is going the whole hog, with a vengeance. Col. Webb, wj underderstand, is a candidate for a foreign mission, either at Berlin or Vienna; but this new kink in cabinet making puts him in the war office. Well, probably he will be as good there as in the other place, until he can speak German. He is equally as well qualified as many who have filled the war office for the last few years. But our cotemporary of Dundee seems to make a little mistake in sur. ming up the services of Col. Webb io the cause ol General Taylor. Our respected cotemporary of the Courier and Enquirer certm ah did not "set the ball In motion" after the battles of Palo Alto and Itesaca. That ball and that prediction were first set in motion and made in the columns of the Arm York Herald. Colonel Webb, of the Courttr and Enquirer, discountenanced all the movements in favor of General Taylor until sometime in Janunry, 1813. Indeed, in '46 and '47, upon several occasions the Conner and Enquirer made an attempt to bring out the name of General Scott for President; but finding no response in any quarter he dropped General Scott, and as a dernier resort, and in absolute necessity, our Wall street friends then came out boldly for General Taylor. This was a short time before the whig convention met in Philadelphia, when there was every indication that that body would tak? up the heroofBuena Vista. Yet we do not urge these facts in derogation of the chances of Col. Webb, either to become Minister at War, or Envoy to Berlin or Vienna. When at last he did come out, we are happy to confess, he did good service to the cause, and helped to bring about a revolution which many persons have taken ibe credit of starting or directing, without being well entitled to any such credit. But for his nomination to the war oflice. This is jne additional stick of to the cords of wood which have been collecting for the last few weeks, for the purpose of manufacturing a durable and permanent cabinet for Gen. Taylor. We have nearly a dozen of new names which have been brought cut for places in the cabinet during the last few weeks. What their chances may be wo will investigate at our leisure. In the meantime, we understand Col. Webb will oe at Washington previous to the inauguration and during the opening( of the new presidency. He will then have an opportunity of asceitaining from Gen. Taylor, in person, what his chances are either for the war department or the mission to Berlin or Vienna. We *ieh li m a 11 lots of luck, and think he can hardly tail, as he is evidently determined ..to be something anyhow. Another Bevolution.?Brazilian Tea.?A few days ago we received, through the Brazilian Embassy at Washington, two samples of tea, grown ind manufactured in the Brazils, which, in point if quality, do not differ much from the ordinary issortments of a similar kind, so largely imported uto this country from Cmiton. The samples are two kinds?ths one black, and the other green or hyson, and were grown and prepared at the botanic garden of the city of SuroPrfrto, Province of Minas-Gerais. Having sjient our New Year's day amidst the tnew heaps and beautiful scenery of the Hudson opposite the Palisades, we had an opportunity of testing the flavor and strength of these teas, during that brief retirement to enjoy the comforts of a country fire-side, as well as the excitement of a sleigh-ride along the Hudson bank. As well as we can judge of such an article, we pronounce both samples to be excellent. Indeed, we are led, Irom these samples, to ei|>ect to see, at no very distant day, a considerable tiade in tea springing up between New York and the HraztK; and we ihould not be surprised to find, brfore half a century shall have passed away, that among the other revolutions of the times there will be a signal revolution in the tea trade. Tiik Choi.>*a.?There is every reason to believe hat the cholera, if it was the Asiatic cholera at all, its expended its force and become extinct at Quarantine. There have been no new cases or deaths lor the last three days, and the Hoard of Health have discontinued their Besaions. The ttulh is, there has been a great deal of unnecessary alarm on this subject; and the panic which prevailed here a abort time since was created by certain |*rreons, aided and assisted by certain journals, the /.'repress being the head and front of them, for speculative and selfish purposes There is no question that the intereets of the city have suffered in a great degree l>y the psnic, so much so that we do not think a uimricr ?f mil. lion ol dollars would repair the damage.

Marsa Greele. t* making great fun tu the ll?use ot Representatives, at Washington, as well as in hia paper, the Tribune, in New York, about the mileage of the messengers who conveyed to the seat of government the votes <>t the Klectoral Colleges?a thing which occurs enly nnceia lour years?and the mileage of membersof Congress, as if a few dollar?, more or less, paid to messeugers or members, is a matter of such great consequence to auch a rich country aa this la. It only ahowa, however, the calibre of Mr.Greeley, aa well aa hia absurdity. Muaaa Greeley, aa our readers are already aware, is a Fourierite philosopher, and hia election to the I louse of Representatives, for the short term, was the last eflort and dying kick of the Fourierites. and a final attempt to reduce to practice the absurd notions which they represent, ii this practical country. Now, we would like to know what all Muasa Greeley's efforts to reduce the mileage of the messengers or members amount to 1 The fact is, that neither the messengers nor the membcra are pud as much us they are entitled to, not near as much aa professional men and men of talent can make in the capacities which many of them have abandoned by going to Wa-hisgton, and sitting in the national councils of Congress. Our members of Congress are not paid enough. They ought to be paid more, in order to enable tliein to uphold n better poaition in Washington than many of them are able to do on the pittance which they receive. Inateud of receiving eight dollars a day every member of Congress ought to receive a regular salary of at least five thousand dollars a year. They are worth that sum, and they ought to have it. This system of paving them by the day degrades them to the condition of day laborers. If they were paid a regular annual salary of live or six thousand dollars a year, they would go to work at once after tde opening of i each session, and perform the business before , .them, instead of disgracing themselves and the country, as they sometimes do, by having long, unmeaning, and ridiculous debates, and uttering interminable speeches of the same character, about nothing. The truth is, Massa Greeley's movements in Congress are the last kick of the Fourierites. For many years past he has been endeavoring to gun position by putting forth the ridiculous notions and fancies of the Fourierite school of socialist His sect bave made many attempt* to reduce their theories to practice; but in every instance in which they tried it?in France, England, and tlie United states?those attempts have ended in nothing hut deception, delusion, disaster and depression. We have a signal example of this in the project of Cubet and its finale in Texas, Vet, in spite of the good sense of the age, Greeley still { ersirts in h;s absurd attempts to belittle legislation, and convert Congress into a mean and contemptible shop of day laborers. He himself is a mixture of sense and absurdity, heretofore pretty well balanced, but now we perceive that the good serse 1b in the minority, and the absurdity is acquiring a greater influence over his mind. He will, however, iind his level by and by. At present, his efforts to reduce the mileage of members of Congress, as well as that ot the messengers, creates nothing but contempt and ridicule.
