New York, Saturday, January !47, 1840, The Ocean Steamer*, There were no tidings of either the United States or Canada when the Htrold went to press this morning.

( eneral Taylor and tile Incoming Admlnl*1 trailon_tts Difficulties. A good deal otjionjecture lias been hazarded on the motives which actuated Mr Clay in again accepting the post ol United States Senator in Congress, frcm the State of Kentucky, and entering afresh into the old polit cal field, at Washington, during the incoming administration. On several occasions, of lute years, Mr Clay declared that he had entirely abandoned political life; and it would really seem as if some strong motives must have impelled him to again consent to mingle, at this late period in his life, in public affairs in Washington. From recent disclosures, it seems also that the motives which have worked on Mr. Clay's rmnd in coming to this determination, are hardly of the moat amiable character?ttiey, in fact, partake more of resentment, or revenge, than of any affectation of friendship towards the incoming administration of Genera! Taylor. According to the accounts coming from the West, Mr. Clay wrote some weeks ago to Gen. Taylor, congratulating him on the success of his election, and intimating that he might tarry at Baton Rouge on his way to New Orleans, and make him a friendly visit at that quiet station. The accounts which have been furniBhcd to the public, of the interview between them, do not give much encouragement for the belief that any very friendly relations exist between the Presidentelect unA tkp PrpaiflAni nnn.?lo/if Fnmro 1 nf/wmnfw?n however, fiom that quarter of the country must be received, before an accurate opinion can lie formed of the state of relations between those twodisguished men, or what may grow out ot the position wbish they hold towards each other, in the future administration of the government. Mr. Clay is not .a man to be over-ruled or over-done, without making an elfort to recover the position of influence, and sometimes of dictation, which lie lias been accustomed 10 hold for ihe last twenty years of his political existence. As matters now stand, Mr. Clay's election to the Senate bodes no good or friendly feeling towards the administration of General Taylor. Tue Mileage Mkjiukr's Explanation. ? Mr. Greeley is daily boring his readers, and wasting the time of Congress, in endeavoring to explain his little pettifogging inconsistency, on the mileage question and the book expenditures of the House. He had tnuch better "confess the coin" at once, and have done with the matter. The facts ot the case are simple, and easily understood. The travelling expenses of members ol Congress, from their plac?s ot residence to the seat of government, are defrayed by the public treasury, according to law. The original intention of the law wan pinijly to pay a fair rate tor those expenses?mflicient to reimburse the members, hut nothing more. Now, the expenses paid by Greeley, in his journey from New York to Washington, probably amounted to twelve or fifteen dollars, and yet he actually received, and put in his pocket, us mileage, the auni of one hundred and eighty-tour dollais! Was this consistent with nu honest and moral construction of the law 1 Gan he lay Ins hand upon his heart, and say that it cost htm more than twelve or fifteen dollars to reach Washington 1 He cannot, and yet h* received nearly two hundred dollars lor performing that journey ! Hia course on the book expenditures is of a similar character. He talks to several of his colleagues in such a way, as to lead them to believe that ho was favorable to making the appropriation. The vote is taken, the books are purchased, Greeley takes his share 01 the plunder; but like all sneaking, cowardly, paltry reformers, he votes against it himael , alter doing all be could to secure an aflirmative vote, and the passage of the resolution. There never was so perlect an unearthing of a low, paltry, contemptible demagogue, ns that which has been witnessed in the case of the lion. Massa GreeJey, during his brief career in Congress. It is no more, however, than what we expected ol hun. Hia conduct in the business of the post office advertising in this city, under a law of Congri ss, was precisely similar. Hy a pettifogging construction of that law, given by Cave Johnson, the preiient postmaster of New York, Mr. Morris, gave Greeley tfie post office advertising : or two years, when, in (act, it legully be loaned to he IS'nc York ttrratd, becsus* it had a much larger circulation, in thia city and out ot it, than hiB paper, the 7\tbvnr, had. Tne Treasury of the United States puid Greeley, through the postniaBter here, nearly live thausand dollars tor those advertisements, not one cent of which was he entitled to, but the whole ot which, legally, morally, and equitably, belonged to the Ilfuld establishment. When we exposed that construction ot the law, nnd compelled the postm* ter here to take that advertising from Greeley, and give it to us, Greefey had ihe impudence and audacity to charge, on two respectable persons in our office, who gave evidence ot the facts us they really were, perjury. For this, those gentlemen commenced a suit against him for damages, which suit will soon be adjudicated before a jury, and the jury will, it they act properly, give th? m damages to the wholeamount ot advertising money whictt Greeley ille. gaily received from the post office of this city, unde r a pettifogging CiNUtincUWef thi kv of t'ongters. Will ili?* jury do ent Fiox New (?rs.nara.- Wi; Hr?* in receipt of tilea of F.l ihn. published in Bogota, up to the 2drh ult. They are very incomplete, however, and have no news of importance in them. Tue country was very quiet, and there does not seem to be any excitement about the approaching election.? Burmese waa vety dull on the coast when the bark Bogota (by which we. received these papers) left Carthsgena, which was oa the 7th mat. ki Cauinkt Making in Washington.?Pur me tune past, cabinet making haa not been so fash ionable as it was immediately after the election of 1,1 General Taylor. For six weeks subsequent to the in seventh of November, the editors and politicians J throughout the country drove a very hard business in cabuiet making, and did not cease until all their ingenuity, fancy, and taste were completely ex- a| kausted. A lull tlieu succeeded ; but a new set of <j. artificers has started up in Washington, whose ? attempts in this liue of handicraft arc beginning * to attract some public attention. P We al-ude to the recent meeting of the whig * members of Congress from Pennsylvania, which J, wus held for the purpose of nominating a Secretary "i of the Tieasury lor Generul Taylor; thereby sav- * inghimthe trouble of advertising for or discover- " mu one for himself. The Congressional cabinet ? makers, however, confine theinselveB to a single I member of the cabinet, and thereby show their strong attachment to that invaluable principle ot mechanical ingenuity - the scientific division ol labor. They will cot make a Secretary of State, or a Secretary of War, or a Secretary of the Navy ; nor will they touch on a Postmaster General. They are modesi, too, in estimating tlreir own capacity, and simply are endeavoring to construct a Secretary, out of a stick of Pennsylvania timber ; and even this small body ol cabinet makers don't know exactly what sort of timber to take. According to their vote, it seems that they had three or four sticks before them; but one of them, labelled Andrew Stewart, was thought the most suitable to be put in the Treaaury department. The rest were accordingly thrown on the wood-pile, to be used hereafter as kindling stuff Seriously, however, the meeting of the Pennsylvania whig members of Congress, recommending a Secretary of the Treasury to General Taylor, is a gratuitous piece of impudence, far greater, even, than the attempts ol the editors and small politicians in the same line ot business. The latter only endeavored to foretel who might have chances of being made cabinet officers; but the Pennsylvania delegation expect that the President elect will consider their resolutions as a species ot instruction for his guidance in choosing his constitutional advisers. The Election of Senator at Alhany.?If Mr, Fillmore, the Vice President elect, and Mr. Fisn, , the Governor ot this State, and the rest of the j wliigs composing the government at Albany, had any moral courage, they would not Buffer them- ' selves to be overruled and made of no account, as j they probably will be m the coming election for ' Senator, by the intrigues of Seward and Thurlow j Weed, lor the purpose of carrying their own 1 schemes into eiTect. These persons are altogether opposed to the election of Seward as Senator, but 1 are afraid to take decided ground against such a * calamity. They are in the same paralized condition as the whig journals are in this city.? r Each whig organ here is the centre of sundry * cliques ot office beggars, who, in their efforts to J get a share of the spoils from the in-coming ad- ti ministration, are afraid to move right or left, and J only try to swim with the current, which ever way it sets. Such a position of things presents a fine opportunity tor the old anti-masenic leaders to get the whole mastery over the whigparty in the State oi New York, and re-establish a regency, even worse than that which Mr. Van Burcn organized, and which is equally revoltinir to the int.'lligence and spirit ol the people throughout this great State. We guess we shall have to go to wont ourselves, take oil'our coat, roll up our sleeves, and set up on their pins Mr. Fillmore and the other whig leaders, i pat them on the cheek, and encourage them to do ? their duty. We are not atraid ot the denuncia- ^ tiona that would be concentrated upon us, which c Weed or Seward could issue from this day up to [ the day of judgment, and six hours alter. We have n long standing account of old grievances to set- *> tie with some of these chaps, and the day is not ? tar distant when we shall make them stand tip to *1 their hand, or give up the ship. ft Italian Opkka?Singular Changr of thk e Times.?If the recent Grand Faucy Ball given by Signor Fry, at the Opera House, was, in a certain t > degree, a failure, it will probably, in another way, ? turn out to be a very favorable affair for the rest of v the season; and be the means of establishing sue- 1 cessfully the Italian Opera in this country for ever 0 hereafter, and a day beyond. I } It may be recollected that the managers af the y bull were much censured for permitting on that ?c- J fusion a certain class ot society in this city to E fi-ure on the gala night; mixing familiarly with all * the characters on the occasion. The class of so- ? ciety here alluded t?, is that originally called the * " siiortinir centlemen." rnmnnm>rlnf mm uhnnwn I 5 C O ? r ? ? " MW W"M J splendid ninntior.B in Park Place and Broadwayt give glorious champagne and game suppers, and entertain and support the whole by the proa peroua results of the faro table. The system ' which they pursue is in some respects not very J dillerent fiom the Wall street system, at least in t' its morale. In short, we understand that the Italian * Opera is now patronized, particulaily in the par- e queue and some of the private boxes, by all the sporting men about town, who are the most elegant and accomplished men of the day ; who sport the it biggest moustaches, wear the most delicate and J richest cloaks, and whose whiskers are altogether unnnpeachaVle. The Wall street men, on the other hand, who deal b in stocks, are by no means so delicate in finish, ? in manner, or in dress, as those people connected v. ith a different kind of banking establishments, ? and who deal in cards, fashionable society of the t [ resent day is composed of two kinds ol sporting Jj gentry? the one being those who deal in stocks, f tlie other those who deal out cards ; but the latter ? desnijtion of people are far the most elegant and p the most accomplished of the two. The remainder of the season at the Opera will now be bnllisnt in the extreme, and the enterprise e will doubtless close with i< hit and profit, leaving a * vast surplus lor the establishment of a foundling bl hospital. |,| n (Vf.vn Steamships -Wf have heretofore in- a< formed our renders that E. K. Collins, Esq., so well known as the principal proprietor of the bra- w untie line of packets between this port and Liverl?ol, had entered on the ocean steam navigation 2< enterprise, and had contracted for the construction of h line of steamships to piy between those ports. We also infonned them that those vessels, ci us vo il as their machinery, are to be constructed tt in ih" trios', scientific manner, aud without regard d4 to expense, with the view of making them equal, if not superior, to the same kind of craft in any ^ part of the world. We now take pleasure in say- m ing, that two of those splend d vessels will be ?'r launched on Tuesday next, both at the same time, oo from the respective yards in which they have been J1' In lit, between the hour* of twelve and one o'clock. We have the fullest confidence that those vesse's, 0,1 w hu h will be named the Atlantic and Pacific, will letlect credit not only on Mr. Collins, who Km qn promoted the line, and the builders who have eon- ,l" 6tp rted them, hut on the country to which they belong.

In speaking of Burns, as a man and a poet, we have the bisiory of one and the beauties of too other to instruct us; but In al udlog to his genius, we speak of the emanationsi-f an inspired mlnu or spirit, suoh as dictated tba Ideas and prompted the expressions ot the great phl'osopher*, painters, and poeti of antiquity The genius of ancient poetry oouoeived the beauiirul anthems and tbe luaguiiioeut imagery of Job aud Isaiah; It awe'led the boi-oui of Homer, when he sung "the Trojan War;" it bred the strains of Sapno, and It kindled tbe glowing numbers ef Anaoreon. It is the same undylig spirit tbat in later iluaes animated tbe lofty verve of Milton, of Dante, of Petrarch, of fasso. of Sbafctpeiue, and of our own immortal Burns, Genius is my theme How difficult to define it! Iluw many hove attempud it iu ruin ! Homo#, tile priaoe of poets, doubtless, Alter long deliberation, called it the 'god of human nature"? a a earthly divinity It is, Indeed, a great principle?one of endless duration. It is confined to no time. It i.s superior to human laws and the oonrtntioua'ities of society. it out lives the pride and prrjudloes of an epoch, to rise still more resplendent amid the visions

of tbe future. I have mentioned the names ef several men of genius whose inspiration has shed a bright lustre upon their age ; and 1 oould, In connection with my subject,bare traced remarkable resoinblaaoes in their lives, to incidents in tbe career of Burns; but in doing eo. 1 should delay you too long I will select, then, only the name of Shakspeare, a genius who. liks Burns, was born in en humble rank, was negleoted In his lifetime, but will, like Burns, live forever la the memories of his countrymen stigkepeare, as an actor ana a dramatist, was, at leait, app>audsd. though not justly appieciated by Queen Elizabeth and her esurtiers; but the gems of his genius slumbered in parchment for a century after his death, in the moth eaten libraries of the corrupt and Illiterate successors of the Virgin Queen. The genius ef Shakspeare was either overlooked or forgotten, while Rochester and Waller were the recipients of royal favdfc, and the delight of the dissipated aristocracy of England, in the latter part of the seventeenth century. But it was only for a moment, In tbe ages of eternity. The oloud that lowered o'er the fane of tbe dramatist soon passed away, and the darkness was followed by a light that has shed an imm> rial halo around tbe name of Shakspeare; and illuminated English literature beyenil all praise, and all precedent. Robert Burns waeooraln humble live; but as it drinking in early Infanoyirom the Castalian fount, as it nursed in secret by the muses?as if directed by that Ootla sung no sweetly in his vision?he pours forth his rapturous melodies, almost uuno'.loed at the mcmeut, it is true, bat whioh gently swelling on tbe ear of time, has tilled tbe world with biu music Burns' genius, simple, nervous, natural and fervent, attraoted not tbe trifling ear of the fashion of his day. Tbe great bund of Scotland died in poverty, with the song upon his lips that was to be the delight and admiration of all nations, throughout all time. Burns died negleoted; but bis genius, the divinity of his nature, survives In glory, ana will live forever. We deplore the man, but we adore his memory, and dolight In the priceless treasures he kas bequeathed to u<. I fear I am intruding too long upon your Indulgence. I muet hasten to conoltide Gentlemen, we are here to do honor to his memory, and we are honored in return by the presence of his genius. His spirit is with us i here to-night. Let ns indulge tbe pleasing Influence it i sheos over our baoq uet. Kill your glasses, than, to the 1 Driot, anu in nowing Dumpers let us oia it welcome. Gentlemen. I give you ss t lie second regular toast: ? ' The genius of Burns " [Drank with all the honors ] Mr. Clihehic.ii ess then called upon (or a song and In compliance therewith he sang ' Highland Mary," prefacing it with some observations on the olrouinstances connected with theeuojeot of the song, her attachment and betrothal to the poet, and her sickness and ueath The song was warmly applauded, and was exceedingly well snog. " The l'oets of Scotland," was the next sentiment. [Drank with eutbusiaxm ] Mr. Draper sang Duncan Gray," to the great amusement of the company. The next regular toast was? " The l'oets of America." Mr. Moo?v,the Vice ("resident of the evening, in a neat speeob, interred to the dtfliculty he experiensed in otunmenoing his remarks, and could not help smiling at the fact that at the anniversary of Burns' birthday for the year IMP, the assemblage had to preside over them a Baneident who oould not stop, and a Vioe President who oonld not etart (Laughter ) He then entered into the character of the writings of Burns, which were characterised, he said, by evidences of a most generous and nob e spirit As a man. Barns was not perteot, more than any other ; yet he had fewer of the imperfections 'hau any other, and more of the perfections. He then glanced at Scotland and her sous, and concluded by giving as a toast ? *' The Lando' Cakes." Mr. James Boijek then favored the company by reolting " Young Lcchinvar," which he did in a very ornuuiuiD iuauutr. At this point the company seemed to get into the spirit of the thing, end the decanter* and bottles of onampagne danced menlly along the table* F.ach one of the company teemed determined to enjoy himself, and to make all do the same Mr. Moodi propct ed " The native poets of America." Drank, with all the honor*. Mr. Ci arkk, of the Knickerbocker, responded to the last toast He said he was, perhaps, the ouly Ameri can present; but poetry is like nature; one touch of it makes us all one brotherhood, for it is bnt a touch of one genial feeling, and is the language of nature He gave " The spirit of true poetry; It lives in nature, and will endure as long as nature exists " The Pni-.sirixriT hereupon announced that the regular toa*t* wire concluded and he thought it an appropriate time to refer te the ab'enoe of a gentleman whom the company would be moat happy to see present on thie festive occasion, h it whore engagement* were eo Imperious as to prevent his attendaooe That gentlrman is Mr. Bryant. He has, however, enclosed the following toast in a letter, " 1'he Scotch in AmericaMen of clear heads and warm hearts." [Drank, with all the honors ] Mr. Dovui.ass was called upon for a song, and gavo "A man's a man for a' that." The Uhaiii then gave, as a toast, " The President of o the United States."

My advice *, that you had much better let him go; for a man that runs away from a good-looking wife ought never to be run after If i were to run away from my wife, 8 I should never expect ber to run after me. c I'risonkh ? Yes, Judge, that's all very true; but Ihen, you know, It's natural for a woman to go after t ber husband, when 1 know to-day he's going to Call- v Ibrnia Besides, he is the lawful father of ray two :hlldren; and that made me feel a little more for h'm t ban I should have done.

Upon hearing this,?he prisoner began p o dry up her tears and look a littie more obeerful. The nsgisirate remarked that they must be more oautious n l'utuie; and if their husbands were determined to go ti A) California, tha hrst nlan would ha tn lot them an u t would b? such better to have tbem employed in tigging gold in that oountry than to be peeking atone iere on illackweli's Uland.
