The bears operate with a great deal of spirit and confidence, and apparently with the firm conviction that points much belew those now ruling, will soon be realised. There are not so many purchasers in the market, and the bulls seem disposed to wait the arrival of later accounts from California before involving themselves any deeper in the fancies Outsiders have left the street, almost in a body, and prices must settle down in tbe sbsenoe of some stimulus to sustain them. There it a mora active demand for money, and loans made on call a few weeks since, at low rat?s of interest, have been called in to a great extent. Tbe demand for specie for payment of duties, has already been large, and the probability is that for the n xt two or three months the payments into the Sub-Treasnry will be very heavy. The banks already feel tbe infiuenoe of this drain, and bave lately been more cautious in tbeir movements.

At present the prospect of any Important Increase in tbe actual valne of the stock Is very poor; but it is good enough for speculation, and It is probable tbat is about all it will ever be.

At this rata, tho publio lands in that dlstriot will aoon be dlspoaed of. Emigration ia settling to wards I 111 note vary rapidly, and the eyatem of internal improvement reoently adopted in that State, will aoon aaake U one of the moat deairable locations for agriculturalists in the Western oountry. It is in contemplation to construct a railroad from Chi" cago to Cairo, a bill being before Congress for a grant of land along the proposed line, to aid the completion of the work. It has passed the Senate, and will no donbt pass the lower house. In connection with these movements, we annex, for the benefit of those interested in lands in Illinois, the material polnta in a reoent decision of the United States Diatriot Court of that State, relative to tax titles. The suit was an aotlon of ejectment, Instituted to recover ItiO acres of land in Adams county, Illinois. The plaintiif showed good title derived from the United States, and possession by the defendant, and rested his case. 1 he defendant relied npon seven years possession, the payment of taxes during that time, and a connected title from the Auditor of the State on a sale in lSJtf for taxes, under the act of 1827 The Auditor's deed dates in 1831. Such was his title. The defendant maintains that he is protected by the limitation laws of 1835. If not by that, then he is by the law of 1888-9, "to quiet possession and confirmed titles te land." As to the act of 1835, the oourt decided that possession without title would not avail That the Supreme Court of Illinois, in 1837, in the case of Garrett vs. Higgins, had deolded that the Auditor's deed, unaccompanied with proof of the performance of the essential re quuues 01 ine law, conveyed no ucie. rnereiore, the defendant is not promoted by that law. The court alao decided that the law of 1838- 0 was idconstitutional and void, because it purports to convey to one man the land of another. The court further decided that the Auditor's deed; unaccompanied, aa in tbeoase at the bar, by proof that he had performed all the requisites of iaw authorizing him to sell the land for taxes, convey no title. Therefore, the defendant ia not protected by ' claim and color of title made in good faith" in the meaning of the law The oourt dell ned the " claim and oolorof title made in good faith" under this law, to be suoh a title as in law would pass the estate prima facie, if abetter title be not shown. That it is a question of law, and not depending upon the opinion of the oeoupant, otherwise the defence would depend upon the capacity of the man to judge; in which case, it would proteot one and not avail another, who might be more intelligent. The finances of Massachusetts are represented as being in the most prosperous condition. The annual revenue exseeds the annual expenditures, and tha assets exceed the liabilitias of the Treasury; six hundred and twenty four thousand dollars, as will be seen by the statement annexed:? Finances ok Massachusetts?Revenue and Expenditures. The receipts into the Treasury, the last year, including $6,134 77 on hand January 1, lt48, and $46 600 for Western Kailroad stock sold, amounted to $660,029 66 And the expenditures to 648,674 97 Leaving a balanoe, on the first of January, 1849, of $11,364 59 The resources of the Commonwealth, on the 1st of January, oonslsted of:? 10 000 shares cf Western Ratlroad stock, (old) $1,000,000 00 134 do. do. do.

Massachusetts is the only State in the Union whioh can make such a financial exhibit as this. Its new railroad stock is put down at its par value, whereas it is worth one or two per cent premium and will ultimately be worth much more than it is at present. Its revenue for the past year, has been increased by the sale of railroad stock to the amount of >46,600. But for this item there would have been a deficiency; the assets on hand, however, have been increased by carrying to the credit aeoount a portion ol the proceeds of that rale.

I have received some further information, thrss' ng a little more light on the views ot the Pros*ent elect, which may be of some interest to yenr Northern readers. 1 have also heard a great dsal f conversation in relation to Mr. Clay's views is ? turning to the Senate, and the probable charao r of his teelings towards the new administration. Mr. Clay arrived here a few days ago, but, incea'quence of a slight accident, he has been confined his room,althoughhe Has seen hispolitica! f riends* ith whom he has had'muchconversation, accordg to all accounts. You have, no doubt, seen some iwspaper stories that were published here, prossing to give a view of the relations between t-neral Taylor and Mr. Clay, and more especially 1 that remarkable interview which took place beween those two distinguished men, for an instant, n board the steamboat at Haton Rouge, when Mr. :lay was passing down the river from Kentucky, j spend the winter in New Orleans. There hu een a great deal of conversation in political otrles, on all those topics connected with Mr. Clay nd Gene ral Taylor, and the position which Mr. day will probably assume towards the incoming dministration. It is dillicult, in the midst of so lany rumors as are afloat, to glean the iacts and nth; but I shall endeavor to do so with as muoh andor and justice as possible. 1 am more and more disposed to believe that Mr. lay entertains some singular feelings, ol a vary jmplex nature, towards General Taylor and his n/-Iu nn/l iUaf thnasa fasalinnra will atfnnf Kits wwn. on and course, should he be returned as a Senator r Kentucky, to a more extraordinary and rearkable extent, than many at this time suppose, i conversation, Mr. Clay never hesitates to (press the highest admiration of the military ilent oi General Taylor. On this subject, he in roluee and eloquent, but beyond this not a word r praise escapes his lips. He never refers to his ivil qualifications, nor to his capacity as a stateslan, at all. Such has been the tone of the conersation here among |his political friends, as I ave learned from those who heard them. But it Ir. Clay speaks so highly ot General Taylor's mttary talent, and says absolutely nothing ot his ivil qualifications, I cannot say that he is equally ilent or significant about some of his old friends n Kentucky and other places, who were the prinipal agents in bringing about General Taylor's tame before the Philadelphia convention, aud geting him the nomination of that body as a candilate for the Presidency. I am perfectly satisfied hat Mr. Clay entertains a most settled hostility to dr. Crittenden, and that that hostility extends to dr. Clayton. Mr. Mangum, Re verify Johnson, nd some others I have heard mentioned. Hn orisiders that Mr. Crittenden, in his course towards General Taylor and himself, acted the part f a treacherous friend, of the worst kind; and with uch feelings burning in Ins bosom, any one cut nsily imagine what kind ot support he will giro te administration that, it is believed, will be conducted under the advice and by the opinion of Ir. Crittenden. _ There is no mistake about the accuracy ot tha lews entertained by Mr. Clay, as tar as I hare een able to gather, during the last few days in. his city. I am also told that letters are in xistence, which were written by Mr. Clay soma ime last year, before and after the Philadelphia onvention, which go the same length in relation o Mr. Clay's opinions of General Taylor, as well s of Mr. Crittenden, and those who supported hem in that convention. If such letters do exist, t is probable they will come out in the course or ime. The accounts which I heard of the casual interiew between General Taylor and Mr. Clay, at la ton Rouge, concur in strengthening the accuracy if the views now taken of Mr Clay's attitude tovaids General Taylor's administration. 1 understand that after his election, Mr. Clay vrote a letter to General Taylor, professing kindess towards him, and expressing a desire to call nd see him on his way to N?w Orleans. To this ?tter the General replied courteously, but gars im no special invitation to stop and visit him, ither for consultation or advice, at Baton Rouge. 'Ins is supposed to be the reason which caused lr. Clay to pass down without calling on General 'uylor; so that there is no probability ot the existtice of any great cordiality between them. I mch fear that the breach has been widened since, ml that Mr. Clay, while he will profess to maintin an attitude ot friendship towards the adinluia ation of General Taylor, will assume such a praise and distinct ground, as will make his action ven more detrimental to many ot the views and urpoaea of General Taylor, than if he were open n opposition. The cabinet of General Taylor will no doubt be leteimined and selected in conjunction with Mr. >ittenden, when the General visits Frankfort, on us way to Washington. Mr. Crittenden may be Secretary oi State, it he chooses; but it is doubtful f he will accept that po9t, for 1 believe his political muraee is not very strong, and it is now thought hat lie is becoming alarmed at the inkling recetvd of the sentiments entertained towards him jy Mr. Clay. Any cabinet which General 1 aylor may select, will be approved by Mr. Clay, ro this, there will be no opposition ; but I am psrectly satisfied that beyoud the formation of the :abinet, Mr. Clay will not go. 1 understand from us friends here, that the other appointments to >flicial stations will be closely examined in the Senate, and that Mr. Clay will take a positioa oundea on the views and principles put forth ia he various letters written by Gen. Taylor, previous o the election. Many ot the applicants for ofHoe inder Gen. Taylor, will, no doubt, be from that iranch of the whig party which were most intrumental in putting aside Mr. Clay, and to this lass of appointments Mr. Clay will be irreconcileibly hostile. In such cases, he will be opposed to ill r< iuoval8, and, in justification of his course, will point to Gen. Taylor's own letters on the subject. In the new Senate, there will be a majority ef democrats politically opposed to Gen Taylor's administration ; and if that body should receive the accession or support ot Mr. Clay, and put a step to any removals arising from the feelings in Mr. Clay's bosom, which 1 have already mentioned, it is very probable that no appointments will be confirmed, beyond the mere members of the new cabinet, till alter a long and trying investigation shall have taken piace, in secret session of th? Senate. Mr. Clay, I understand, will alwavs be courteous^ and will profess great friendship and admirationfor Gen. Taylor himself; but aa to his cabinet, constituted, as it is supposed it will be, of Mr. Crittenden and those leading whigs who contributed to throw him overboard, Mr. Clay is determined to pursue them to ttie last extremity. Hence, it will not surprise me, if, notwithstanding the pressing invitation of [Jen. Taylor, Mr. Crittenden should remain In Kentucky, and decline a place in the cabinet, or fear of coming in contact with Mr. Clay, at tVashirgton. If the measures which Mt. Clay may propose ia 'ongress, when he reaches his station in the Senate, 1 do not hear so much said; but 1 have no loubt he will revive some of those which he atempted to revive in the time of Gen. H irrisoa, nd that he will endeavor to embarrass the new abtnet, while professing to suppjrt hun, muck nore than the public dream of. I have heard nothing further of importance from laton I! ouge. Uailie Peyton went to von General faylor, a few dajs ago, in order to fini out what irrangeinents the President elect had made with fgnra to his cabinet and other matters, but he elurned with a considerably big (lea inhisesr. Ie made no discovery, and could ascertain nothing it all i I what he wished, beyoud the simple sutenent thut the General, on his wav to Washington. ntended to visit >ir. Crittenden, at Kranktort, in ieaiuckv, and there make some arrangements reative to his cabinet, before he went over the mouuains. I understand, however, that the General ins been thinking strongly of appointing Horace iinnt y,?f Pennsylvania, as Secretary of the Treaury, and he might even make him Secetary of state, should department be refused by Mr. bitienden, or should that gentleman take the A.torney-Generalship Mill, however, there can ha 10 doubt that the General wants Mr. Crittenden. b( ve nil i thers, to take,the State department, una here can be as little doubt that Mr. Crittenden is leginnu.g to feel afraid of taking not only that deariment but any, since the disclosures have been nade tel.itivc to the feelings which Mr. Clay eueriains towards him. There will be a terrible cx- , l< sion between Mr. Clay on the one hand, nd Mes-era Crittenden, Clayton and others, on the , tlier, one i f those days. The General has ths , n atest confidence in Mr Crittenden,believes him it be a man of strict honesty, ot great talent, but , e will submit to no dictation from any quarter, "he General thinks htmaelf a moderate whig; but t is very etisy to begin in a spirit of great mode- , a lit n, and be urged on by intrigues and cabala at iVHslnngton to a point or two beyond. He const- I lers that the letters which he wrote previous to , he election, in reply to inquiries made to htm r< tn all quarters, as comprising Ins whole political , anh, and broad enough to embrace everything conlected w uh public affair* I have every reason to I, lelirve that his inaugural address will be merely i recapitulation of the doctrines, axioms, ana K>stu atts, contained in his p ditical letter*.
