New York, Krlrtay, Janurj 10, 184:0, Our Forri|>ii Correspondence. Our readers will find in to-day 'a paper an additional letter from our accomplished and able correspondent, Marcus. This gentleman is an American?a Wetlern man, of distinguished talent; and his letters are acknowledged to be the most perfect and erudite expositions of European affairs that ever have been published on this side ol the Atlantic^ Opposition, In Advance, to Usntrsl Tsylor'l Administration, It ia very evideut that the various political factions of the North and South, and perhaps of the "West, too, who were defeated in the recent Presidential election, are very earnest, and are struggling hard, to organize an opposition of a guerilla kind, in advance, to the incoming administration of General Taylor. This opposition is intended to operate in Congress, as well rs out of it?among the people. There are mors than ninety members of Congress yet to be elected for the session that wiii v|ini iu next jjrcemuer. J adding from what hae been the result of the fall elections, the chances are that a large majority of those members who are to be elected will be favorable to the party which elevated Gen. Teylor; and, therefore, with them, and those members who were elected recently, there can be no doubt but that General Taylor's administration will have a great majority in the next Congress. If the result of the elections which are to take place should be the same as that ?f the recent ones, the majority in favor of the new administration will be thirty-five or thirtyseven; but if, under the new agitations which have been set on loot by the various factions throughout diflerent sections ot the country, new issues should be made, the anticipated majority for the new administration may be reduced to nothing at all. The political movements which have recently taken place at Washington, under the auspices of Mr. Calhoun and some ot the Southern members, in reference to the slavery question, have probably us much bearing on the organization ot a new party at the South, which will be opposed to General Taylor's adminis- 1 tration, as they have on the avowed purposes 1 which the originators cf them have given out.? The aggressions of the Northern StateBof the con- j fedrracy towards the Southern, on the slavery ( question, have been exaggerated and enlarged upon, fur the purpose of furnishing a platform in the approaching elections in the Southern States, so as to enable the new opposition to carry a majority ot that section of the couatry against the incoming President. Some of the Southern members appear to be very violent?threatening, as they do, a dissolution ot the Union, and fulminating their direful purposes, without regard to prudence or moderation. The greater portions of those threats und fulminationa are, however, intended for Buncombe, and meant as capital to be i used in those elections, tor the purpose ot prepar- | mg the public mind to oppose the policy of General | Taylor; and as such, they are beginning to be un- , derstood. i The movements of Mr. Van Buren and the free t Boilers ot the North, including the odds and ends ^ of the abolitionists, who have united wnh them, ( have undoubtedly a similar purpose in view. The ^ otirtv which supported General Cass in the Xortli. a i? entirely broken in pieces, although some of the r individuals who acted as leaders, may survive the wreck of the vessel, and (lout ashore on sticks and spars, here and there, along the political coast. General Cass himselt, it seems, is to be returned to the Senate by the Legislature of Michigan. If this should turn out to be a fact, his will be one valuable life saved from the general wreck of the Juckson democracy. Others, too, maybe saved by their individual edorts; but on the whole, th# old democracy?tnat is to say, the democratic party which rose up with General Jackson? may be considered as cons gned to the tomb r.f the Capuleis, and must give way to new combinations and fieah movements of parties and measures. Mr Van Buren and the free soilers of New York and New Kogland, intend to hold the vantage ground of opposition to the new administration; and the movements which will soon take place, in which members of the new Congress are to be elected, will be conducted in direct hostility, in advance, to the measures, and purpose*, and]administration of Gen. Taylor. Tins combination will form another branch?a Nor .hern branch?of the new opposu ion to the incoming administration j What a singu'ar spectacle does not ihe politics j aspect of the country and of the next Congress pre- j sent! Mr. Van Buren and Mr. Calhoun, who have agitated the country tor the UbI quieter of a century, now uniting in a nominal opposition, as re i ga'ds their views, hut perfectly coucurring in the ultimate purpo le of purling down the ne v administration, arid endeavoring to do so, even in advance, each in his own way ! These movement! are daily being developed as we represent them. A new division and reorganization of parties are now certain. The new administration mint take a /ioiu<.tvafivo t.ii.iftnn in r?-i'rwni*r r?i flit* letwrv . and eveiy oth^r cuestton It mint take a positive ^ etiind hi opposition t? the dtstinionnts ot both sections of the country?the North as well as the ' South Of cou no those i>tie rill is, or factional s--c- I * tionists, although ostensibly opposed to ea h other, j k end utterly and irreconcilably -tt vnrun t in their * avowed fitirixwe, ?il f'otina k nd ofc'imbina ion j" in the next Onngreae, for the purpose of cin iarr.ms- s jpp and weaken ng 'he administration of ttie new j t I'm id? nt. it w nl he we) i } >r itie w i,ole country to lo< k on their designs and th t> movements in this liuht, as t>y so doin# it will be enabled t? in et aud * cbviate them. 1 StfaMK* e le ter, received " in tin* city, from Cha^res, by the Falcon, at New ' ttrVaiie, men'tons the arnval ot the mail steamer c Cnl.fornia ut Pa?oiirie, |?revious to the ItOih It-c.

Barisakitt, and Violation of tub )kad.?Suppose the father, mother, sister or rj rother of any one of us, or of any citizen, at some w listant place in the Union, wa9 to come on to 11 Mew York city, a stranger, and on walking aloof it he streets was to tall down and die, trom some c >ne out of the many causes, accidental or natural, e A'luch cause death ?what would become of him, b icr, or them ? It is awful to relate; but the fact is low leaked out, and it is proper the public should g know it?he or she would be carried to the bonelior.se, a Coroner's inquest, )>ro forma, would be held over the body, and to all appearances, and according to all accounts, and to all the information to be got from the authorities, the body would be decent, ly mteired in the Potters Field on Randall's Island. But such would not be the fact ; it iB probable the bcdy would never reach the burying ground; it would be taken away, cut up, mutilated, and dissected, and the torn and lacerated fragments thrown out into the streets and gutters of this filthy city, to be torn by the dogs, and devoured by the hogs. These terrible facts ; this atrocious violation of the dead ; this indecency on the part of the | city government towards the city aud its citizens ; , these outrages upon humanity?have all come to ( light by the persevering eflints made -and made is 1 vain?by an affectionate son, to discover the body | of h:s lather, who accidentally died in the streets j of our city the other day. Officer W. H. Bell, of , the Eighteenth ward, was the person chiefly em- , ployed to aid in the search after the body ol the deceased; and the scenes come to light in the course oi their vain endeavors, the sights they , saw, the dark mysteries of the dead house, which Mr. Bell, and the son ol the deceased, together, found out in their long and vain pursuit, would harrow up the feelings oi the most insensible, to heartliem relate them. We think it our duty?a solemn duty to the living?to give this account of ( the secret horrors practised uoon the unknown dead who may happen to die in this city, away from their friends. What is most extraordinary in this matter, ia the fact that the public city authorities know nothing at all about tha matter; moreover, they care nothing at ail about it, and bandy about the child in search of the body of his beloved parent, from office to office, from place to place, with scorn, contempt, and neglect, without caring, or being able to give any information. Mr. Buskirk, a respectable citizen ol Staten Island, lately died suddenly in the city, and his son having come here to obtain his body, has found it gone, and disposed of, nobody knows where. Ia the course, however, of the painful research, it has come to light that the bodies of those who die in the streets are Bent from the Alma House and other places to be nominally interred in Potters Field. Out of nine bodies sent by the Alms HouseCommissioner 1 to be thus buried, <*n the 5th and 6th ult , four only out of the nine reached the ground ! Mr. tiuskirk, ( Jr., and Mr. Bell, the officer, opened six coffins at f Potters Field, in search of the body of Mr. Buskirk, and they found only mutilated remains and pieces of flesh?a trunk without a head, and all 1 sorts of mutilations, too horrid to recount. Where and when the bodies disappear when they are chopped up, no one can or will tell. They are left ' in the bone house at Bellevue, for a time, in the j care of a pauper?then they are carried in a boat 1 frein Bellevue to Randall's Island, and here they | are given to the care of the sailors, also paupers; i and the coffins are lef: for nights, exposed and un- j protected on the wharf, tossed negligently on the shore, and less than half reach the burying ground ! Now, if these were only poor people's dead bodies, , the rich might laugh at it; but let the rich, let all t men, recollect that the bodies of their own fathers j or wives, or of any stranger who dies in the city unknown, will be treated in this manner! It such a 1 thing had happened in heathen lands, among the i Romans, Greeks, or Turks, it would have roused l the living to a state of horror and indignation k which would have produced a terrific revolution and awful retribution upon the guilty authors and ^ connivers at such outrages. But we live in Chris tiun times, and these are Christian practices. a Generals Tayi.ur and Wool.?The attempts (1 recently made in this city,,by certain journals, to c create a quarrel between General Tavlor and Ge- 0 neral Wool, in relation to their respective merits * on the field of Buena Vista, have received some encouragement in other quarters. The Nurth American, oi Philadelphia, in its Washington cor- e rerpondence, re-cooks the same views, with the same sauce, which first made their appearance in a the columns of the Courier and Enquirer, of this * city. Such efforts, for such purposes, will be deprecated by all intelligent minds. The motives which miy 1 actuate these individuals, la attempting to excite ? a quarrel between these distinguished officers, will * probably lie revealed at an early day. It is easy to # Suess at them now. Selfish scrambling for office, ? or an attempt to play upon the unsuspecting feel- * ngs of distinguished men, may be disguised tor a p diort time, but will soon disclose the cloven foot. " r We are sure, judging from the private characters 01 >f Generals Wool and Taylor, that r either of them ' vill notice or countenance such projects to raise a w lisagreement and excite jealousy. The two jour- Jj' als, however, now professing, from an extreme gC egard for Gen. Taylor, to originate a quarrel of his kind are well known to have been, both of hem, bitterly opposed, as long as they possibly M :ould he, to Ins advancement to the station which i? le will soon fill. One of them struggled for months ? ?nd months, in every possible way, against the des- c, :iny of General Taylor, that it might bring out Ge- *t leral Scott as the whig candidate; and the other, J( jntil the laat'momeut, was a furioua advocate if Mr. Clay. Now they come, at this late * lay, and profess to be the only guatdians and the dl inclusive friends of Gen. Taylor, in support of his ^ miliary reputation, against attacks coming fr m he opposition press?attacks which are only con octt d and published for the purpose of being re- c] died to. b< It is a witless and miserable intrigue, and de- * lerves full and ample exposure, which we shall to nake of it at an early day, if it he necessary.

The principal ground of opposition to iim is said to be that he was born in Scotland, and at s not, therefore, a native born of this country, Die fact that he was born in Edinburgh, we be- U| ieve, is not denied; but he came over at an early T tge to this countiy, and was educated at Columbia th College, where he took his honors. J1' The new Governor, it is said, is in favor of Mr. J, Reward, and it ap|>ear8 probable, from the circumitance of the latter having l>een appointed lately by ^ be former to the respectable trust ol directing the u? r an Rensselaer suits on the part of the Slate. There are many excellent candidates for the iflice of United .states Senator, and all of them n 1 ve think preferable, in aome leepecta, to W. if.

Til* GOVKKMMKNT AND TUB Cai.i PORN iA P*Sitciikm.?The Washington Union charges us 'ith injustice and illiberality, because of onr giv- ' g a small bit of confidence to the rumors circu" 1 iting in this metropolis some time past, that ofli- ' ial intelligence from California had been suppressd at Washington, and held back from the public y the government. Our cotemporary at Washington is somewhat luiiry, both of injustice and illiberality, tu bundling is up with the A'fetiitig Pout, or including us in the tame category. We did not fully believe the atotes circulated in Wall street, and our purpose in nibllahing them was to bring forth an official denal. We are now perfectly satisfied, from the mo9t authentic information, that the stories in Wall street were mere inventions of the speculators, and that the government at Washington hare had do information other than what has been already published. It must be known to the government, as well as to others, that the California fever in this and other cities, is afford ng to speculators a vast field of operations; and that all sorts of stories are irvented, and every species of fraud resorted to, in order to increase the number of dupes, and blow the bubble to its broadest dimensions. There is good foundation for the belief that Call, fornia is going to become a very im|>ortant settle ment, and that vas1 fortunes will be made by many adventurers, both by digging and by commercial operations. But no species of commercial adventure or opening can exist in this country, in a moderate shape, for any length of time. The best evidence is, that the speculators are now at work in all directions, to get up expeditions, to collect money, and cheat the public, under the golden dream of going to California, and beuoming millionaires in a week. We acquit the government, therefore, of all concealment in its oflicial intelligence, and desire lta venerable organ to extend the hand of forgiveness, and make the amtndr honorable. Tiik Opera and its Critic#.?What is in the wind now! Mr. Fry does not seem to manage hie organs very well, nor do they play at all in tune.? One of his favored journals has been the Couner and L'ntjuirer, and the savage manner in which that paper now comes out upon the new opera and 'he artists, is such as would make an Osage Indian of the Upper Mississippi condemn it lor the cruelty of the operation. Benedetti, Rossi, and even Truffi?all poor Italians, who have been laboring and working for the season to repair the blunders of Mr. Fry, and fill the house as well as they could ?are horribly treated, while moderate and middling singers receive eulegiums and praiBe. This is hardly fair or just criticism. But it is none of our business?the cookery is in other hands.
