The Message ot Mr. Polk, explaining the protocol to the late Mexican treaty, as far as received by telegraph, is perfectly triumphant. The conduct of the whig party, iu both houses, on this subject, appears not only unnecessary, but completely absurd and ridiculous. What dc the whig leaders iu Congress wantl Do the) want to make Judys" of themselves 1 Do the) want to break the treaty 1 Do they want to reopen the war 1 Do they want to add embarrassments to General Taylor's administrationt Ii really would appear as it their object was to establish all these issues. In a tew weeks General Taylor will be President of the United States?elected to that high station principally by the wlug party, throughout the countiy. Tne great popularity of Gen. Taylor, and the elements of his great success, grew out of this Mexican war and its most important results. Now, aie the whigs ready to abandon all our acquisitions by that war 1 Are they ready to repudiate all the glory ot our campaigns in Mexicol The Mexican war and its results present one oi ths most brilliant pages of American history, and no party in this country can succeed with the people by repudiating that war, or by seeking to throw disgrace upon its results. We are disposed to believe that the whig leaders have been so long in a minority?so long in the position of mere agitators?so long representing the character and playing the part of fault-finders, that if they do not take good care, and change their tectics, they will, instead of supporting and ennobling the administration of General Taylsr, embarrass both him and their party, and produce difficulties where no difficulties need be. Do, gentlemen, have some common sense. "Ik* Friend of Humanity" In tlae American Congress. "Unhappy wretch! Wb?t hut thou gotten by this fetch, Or sJJ thy trick* to this new trade. Thy holy brotherhood o' th' blade!" Hcomaa*. Pari 111., Csnto 1. It is a melancholy fact that we live in a very wicked age?a hard-hearted, gold-loving, profligate age. But it is consolatory to reflect that wo are not left without preachers of righteousness. Wa may be like unto Gomorrah ; but then we have a Greeley; and although steeped in iniquity, there is still in our midst a miracle of bran-bread and charity. The fame of Reformer Greeley has been widely spread; and, indeed, we take some credit to our unwoithy sell in giving celebrity to this distin* guishrd philanthrooist. We obtained an early insight into this interesting bit of humanity. The amiable being who talked ao loudly and ao modestly of his love for the whola miserable race of mankind, and who exhibited so charming a simplicity of character, naiurally attracted our atten. tion; and we have managed to keep sight of him from his first appearance in white hat and short pantaloons on the pubis stage, till the present hour. On his election to the House of Representatives, our interest in ths philosophic friend ?i ths human family was naturally enhanced. We awaited, with a good deal of anxiety, the debut of the relonner on this new and conspicuous stage of action. How will our protege bear himself 1 What grand scheme of benevolence will he first propose 1 To what important practical plan of ameliorating the condition of the poor will he first devote hia gigantic energies 1 What plan for tha education, elevation and regeneration of humanity will he first carry through Congress T On what subject will he, in his wisdom, first rally the friends of truth and liberty in that Houae 7 What opportunity will he first embrace, in order to manifest himself as a burning and a shining light in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation 7? These were the questions which presented themselves to our mind, and in the silent watches of the night disturbed the equanimity of our loving soul. We may as well confess the weakneaa at once.? We did tremble for humanity, and Horace! It certainly was weak to doubt auoh aphilanthro put as Greeley ; and the result was lull of admonition and rebuke. No aooner did thia pure-minded man aet his foot in Congress, than the work of reormation began. While right " Manfully himself ba bars, And ratting bts right foot botors, Hsrals'd himself, tosbow how tall His parson was abort tbam all," Greeley, the philanthropist; Greeley, the reformer; Greeley, tha model " friend of humanity"?at once hurled ins bolts against the corruptions of the House. No puny, faltering, grovelling reformer is he! What, tohissagacious vision, are all your paltry schemes lor educating the masses of the people ; for diffusing amongst the poor and despised the treasures of knowledgs which srs secured only to the rich snd influential! What, to him, that government endows with theusands and tens of thousands, institutions which benefit only rich men's offspring, while it leaves crowds of the children of poverty to grow up in all our large citiee, in nakedneas, and famine, and crime 1 What to him is legislative reform of our prisons and alms houses 1 What to turn is postage reform, or any other of these despicable, common place ideas, which bother the minds of ordinary sinners 1 A Greeley grapples only with gigantic evils. The benevoleace of a Greeley is not content with any thing short of soma grand heroic ach.evtmeat tor tha human race! Hence the parliamentary career ot this famous reformer has been distinguished by a moat determined effort to break down that grand impediment to American pregreas and buniau iniprovt mem?the mileage ot membsr* of Coegre-s. Hard!" arfed men, sceptics,profane fellows, who mcofl at g odn? ss c&imug to us la the >b <pe of tgl low faced bipeds, with long, lank hair and susptoiau* | linen, I ave b? rn much in ih? habit of ridiculing philanthropists and reformers, as visionary dreamers. But Greeley is a practical man. lie baa as eye to the dollar* and cents. lie is deeply imbued with the amiable and humanizing philosophy of Benjamin Franklin. He checks the per diem sad mileage ot members, as model wires audit the weekly accounts of their washerwomen. Ho muffles overt-very new piece ol exlravaganse. Ho la the sworn guardian ?! the people's money, and where their tiearure ia, there is hia he m also. In uli thia, how unlike in our pet and pattern rs? tormcr, to the common run ot philanthropists and friends of humanity!" They sometime* aeek to infuse into the cold, hardened, selfish hearts of governments, something of the benevolence ut the blessed founder ot the Christian faith?he, more a man ol the world, initiates them into the sublime moralities of dollars and cents. The Congressional career of Greeley haa been an eminently appropriate finale to hta public lite. He haa alwaya been the great friend of the poor; and be haa proved the amcerity et hia devotion to their intereata by hia unparalleled efTorta in behalt ot mileage reform. He haa alwaya been a atrenuoua advocate of cheap and efficient popular education; and he baa ahown hia enthuaiaam in that great caute by hia unparalleled eflbrta in behalf of mileage retoim. He haa alwaya been a zealoua laborer in the work of priaon reform ; and he haa demonstrated hia zeal by hia unparalleled eflbrta to obtain mileage reform. He haa written acrea of newapaper sheeta to induce mankind to live in large hencoop*, and enjoy the delighta of the Fourierite heaven; and he provea hia aincerity by hia unparalleled eflbrta in favor of mileage reform. He haa at last hit on the grand panacea for "all the ilia that flesh is heir to." Bran-bread ia nothing to mileage reform. Founcritun ia nothing to mileage reform. " Self-culture" ia nothing to mileage reform. Even the Sleive-gammon battle is nothing to mileage reform. Ot all the modea ever yet invented, of ? Osttlng the start of tha majastle world," there haa been nothing at all equal to mileage reform. Social reform?legal reform?priaon discipline reform?dietetic reform?Irish reform, must all knock under to " mileage reform." Stupendous idea! Do you want a regenerated state i of society 1 You have it in mileage reform. Do you deaire an amelioration of the penal code! , Take mileage reform. Do you long for a just re, cognition of the " rights ot labor 1" Find it in i mileage reform. The new code of legal practice r ia a direct emanation from those migflty philoaor phera, Fourier and Greeley; but Messrs. David Graham and Dudley E. Field must call in their " masterspirit," before they can finish their great I work on civil and criminal practice with com. manding iclat. Thua gloriously has Greeley vindicated his right to be regarded as the great philauhtropist and reformer of the age. Thus haa he proved himself the champion of the oppressed?the faithful follower ot freedom?the true friend of humanity? the herald of that millenium of universal love and water gruel about to burst upon the world ! And for all this wastage oi soul, tongue,and punt&loona, he haa only got out ot the United Statea' Treasury $184, his own mileage to Washington, which cost him about $12 in travelling; and about $650 in " those books" which he voted both for and against- making in all $820 over and above hia pay of $8 per day. Great mileage reformer! Tint Opeba?La Favorita.?The Opera House, i ? \ ii: a j i..i a\ i_ msi evening, wu uriumui aim bucccbmui, uiuugu we cannot say aa much for the performances, which were barely not a failure. A few more rehearsala would improve the performcra considerably, though many critica believe that the Labordes would master the opera better than Benedetti and TrufTi; but we congratulate Mr. Fry on the fulness of the hsuse and the splendor of the company. The cause of this revival is, to many, quite a problem in the annals of fashionable society. We rather think, however, that the pardon which Governor Fish has just extended to Jack Harrison, and the triumph of Tom Hyer over Yankee Sullivan, would, in the absence of anything more satisfactory, furnish a likely, if not a conclusive, solution to the problem. Be that as it may, there can be no doubt but these two great "facts" will exercise a most beneficial eflect on the "houses" at the opera tor the remainder of the season. That class of fashionable society who form the friends of these distinguished "lions," are flush of money and liberal in spending it. They have a fiae taste for opeia and the elegancies of fashionable society. They dress better than any of the Wall street classes?their whiskers are more bushy and more neatly trimmed?their mostachios are more captivating'y curled?their imperial, or to speak more democratically, their "goatee," is more irresistibly fascinating?in short, their whole outer man is more gentlemanly, dignified, andrec/iercAL Their internal decorations are equally in advance of their fellow loungers around the house?they are better judges of what constitutes good opera, and are more generous aad patronizing to so refined an amusement. Last year, it may be recollected that Yankee Sullivan was a frequenter of the Opera, and what spur he gave to the music and the managers. The recent fight, however, it is said, has swept away all his funds, and also abstracted large amounts from his backers and supporters. II this be the case, they must content themselves with a shilling "cut" at the Bowery or Chatham. Tom Hyer, however, has been more fortunate. His star is now in the ascendant, it he can only get out of the clutches of the authorities of Maryland. He is flush of money, and will grace the parquette in a far superior style to that of his less for tunate rival. There is a prospett, at ail events, that during the remainder of the opera season, the audiences will be larger, more elegant, more shaggy and fierce looking, more rtektrchi, and more remunerative?although tha troupe may be more careless and less efficient than ever. Mr. Fry la in luck at last. He need not quarrel any more with Benedetti in the green room, nor make speeches to the i suffering audience, nor sigh tor a fight in the parquette between a committee man and any of the hmbUiU*. Thi Dkamatic Fund Association.?The benefit given for aiding in the establishment of a Dramatic Fund Association baa been very successful. Tha amount of receipts almost reached the sura of three thousand dollars. The house was crowded with the most respectable classes of society in this city? the real pations of the drama in its beat characteristics. We trust that the managers of this benevolent institution will now go to work and organize it upon an efficient and practical footing. The proceeds of th<s benefit ought only to be the begin mug 01 a mcTrnrii 10 increase uie etnciency 01 the pressed institution. Every theatre in the city, before the season in over, ought to give a separate benefit to increase the funds of a charity from which so much good may be expected to flow to unfortunate performers hereafter. Apropot of the accommodations en tho evening in question. One of our theatrical reporters said some hard things of Mr. Povey and others, which had been much better not to have been said. From the beet authority, we are satisfied that Mr. Povey (who has always been courteous to trie press,) and his colleagues, exerted themselves to their utmost in accommodating all that appeared. Single gentlemen?even of the press?should, on a crowded night, for a public charity, be quite content with standing room, or a peep over a short man's should* m. We would, and be thankful.

BiDiDwir Thutm.-Tho(splendid pageantry of Mont* CrUto, a drama eminently euooessful, the unprecedented run of wbioh aae been and la ttill a wonder In tbe tbeatrioal world, wae again performed last night, before an lmmen e assembly. It la needless to lay that Mr. Lester and bis oouiin, MIm Wallaok, were rewarded, daring tbe whole evening, with muohapplauie. The talent of Mr. Lester is really original and varied, and tbe oifferent personations 01 his part are rendered by bim with great skill and footing. Mrs. Abbott, tbe obaiming Miss Sinclair, the pretty Miss Celeste and the excellent aotors Messrs Uyotl aad Vscbe Fredericks, Msthews, Bernard, Shaw, eto , all fulfil tbeir bletrioolo duty with great ability. The rtoh scene of tbe masquerade ball Is one ef tbe most amusing aflaire < ver put on tba stage. The variety of oortnme, tbe humor of entertainment, tbe evolutions and tbe wbo e coup d ait ate oapital We think It our duty to make our readers remember that this evening will be devoted to tbe benefit ef Miss Fanny Wallaok. We hope tbe whole bouse will bo crowded from pit to doma. National Thbatbb ?We witnessed, last avsnlag, tbe representation, at this bouse, of the famous nautical drama of " Blaok-Eyed Susan," a drama wbioh ba* probably been more popular and oftener acted than any other nautical pleee. J. R. Seottwastbe William lastnlgbt, and be certainly noted tbe manly, noblebearted tar in most excellent taste. The description of tbe intluenee which the recollections of bis dear biaok eyed Suran bad over him whilst far at sea, was most pathetically given ; and then again, In the lighter portions of tbe part, snob as the story ef 8t. Domingo Billy, be displayed muoh oomio genius. Mr. Boott makes a most excellent stage sailer, as be does not over-not tbe part, th? fault 01 most performers in this line. Little Miss Car.ins danced a hornpipe very prettily during tba plroe. The audience applauded tbe p'ay very much Tbe rest of tho performances went off very favorably. A new piece, tf a peoultar nature, called California Ho!'' will be brought out neat week, we understand. It will exhibit .vloae, Sykesey, Lite It Co , under new auspices, and we shall see them e'ert on tbeir trevele to Kl D redo. Tbo aubjeot affords muob scope for the local dramatist*, and ws expect this new plt-oe will take the lead of all the local pieoes yet produced. Buston's Thcatbb.?This pleasant theatre still draws its fashionable audiences, and will, n* doubt, so long as Mr. Burton keeps tbe public entertained with pieoes of a comioal and yet classical nature, from eaab of wbiob a good moral oan always bo drawn. Last evening" Vanity Fair" was again produced, in wbioh Mr. Brougham and Miss Chapman ara the principal performers; followed by tfcs exoiting piece oalled " California Gold Mines," wbioh gives a mos. sxoallent idea of tbe gold digging regions, showing up tbe tolls as well as tbe pleasutes to he derived from a visit to tbe gold mine*. Tbe entertainments onnoluded with the local burlseoue called " Monto Criety," in which the prominent actors of the original placa of ' Monte , Cristo" are taken oil most admirably by Mr. John- , ton. American Circus.?The attraotiona nightly presented here, draw Immense houses; and last night the oirous was well filled. Among the many feats that ell. oited the applause of the house, were the beautiful gymn&stios and gronptngs by Sands and boys. This papular place of evening recreation still enjoys the blfch and deserved reputation it has earned since Its opening ; snd the fighting ponies, the feiry steed Cinderella, and tha other attractions, still continue to draw full houses. Uusu'l'i Concrbt.?Last evening Qung'l gave an- ' other grand conceit at the Tabernacle, which was attended by a select and highly respretable. but for so large a pis oa as the Tbheraaole. seanty andleaes of tha fashionable, the amateurs, and the dlllstante of this great metre polls. To describe the charms of OnngTs various rich psrformances, the tbrllllng harmony and eahlleratlng vivacity which are so remarkably oharaoterlstie of his oomposlttons, would bs. ws confess, no easy task. The excellence of his band, and the great ' talent which It individually contains,hive been felt and 1 acknowledged by ail tba judges and paisionntes of * mntle In our eminently mutioal and mnrlo loving elty. 1 Tba gems of the evening's performance last night, in * onr estimation, were the original compositions of h Oung'l himself. The ''Illustrated Polka"and tka "Bao- t obua Have.iles," with the pot povrrl and military a marches, otme with auoh a delioious charm to our aars, t and thre w sueh vlvaelous hilarity and good humor over g the animal man. that we oould have aat entranoed 1 listeners for hours, to hear the same enlivening and sanl siirring harmonies Toothers, however, and ws , are free to confer* to better Judges, there were last f nigbt yst more brilliant pieces, and more excellent | performances. The ''Orpheus" of Strauss, ean sosros- t Iy be pissed svsr, It was so beautiful. So was Donlset- a ti's finale to' Lucia dl Lammermoor." the execution t of this difficult placa was truly wonderful. These. c with tha other pieeea, were given with great offset; and a masterly perfection, and finish of time and touch But especially the "Grand Concertino panr la Pint*," by Mr. 8leds, one of ths band, which best night was ? executed by special request, produced raptures of entbnsissm and delight In the judges. Ws met, after * the performance, with some who had heard It, whose ' eestacies were perfectly transcendental, and the language of their applause and admiration as elevated and * extravagant as tbslr feelings were overwhelming and P enraptured. It was Indeed a rich, splendid, deep, profound, touohlag and exquisite performance. Tha publie ought really to thank Uung'l for snob delicious entertainments. and If the public would turn out as they ought to, a little less lastly, ws opln* that Gung'l would thank the public too. ; Ciiaiitv's Minstbrls?As grave as a mustard pot, Is a common-place kind of a comparison, but the "Concert a la Mustard." given nightly by these eccentric geniuses, is the last thing in tbs world to make ? any look grave; ths "Voyage .Musical," tba per- ol fcrmanees on th# six horns, and all the other featnraa of this wonderful ooncsrt must be heard to be appre- |, elated. The remainder ol tkelr entertainments are of q the usual excellence. To day, they give two oonoerte, v vis., at Sand 8 F. M. j, New Orleans Bkrxnadbbs ?These scientific 'gen- B tlemen of color" are dalag wonders at the Society Li- E brary. They attract crowds nightly, and their va- a< rioua performances are received with the most nn- oi bounded applause. Their burlesques on many of th* most beautiful airs from popular operas, as well as their di far-famed seenaa from tb* Italian opera, are truly ad- tl mtiable. To-day they will give an afternoon oonoert, Jo at 3 P. Mas well as an evening one at th* usnal hoar.
