Ho! for California. The repairs of the engine of the steamship Panama have been completed, and she made a trial yesterday. She is now in excellent trim, and will leave for Panama on the 15th instant, positively. She will be commanded by Lieut. David D. Porter, of the navy, a son of the late Commodore Porter. Her route will be through the Straits, stopping at Rio, Valparaiso, Callao, and Panama. She taltea a limited number of passengers, and will form, on the Pacific coast, the third of the line of the Pacific Mail Steamship Company. She will doubtless reach Panama by the 1st of May. The Panama was built by Mr. W. H. Webb, and her engines by Mr.Allaire,'at the Allaire Works. The splendid ship John G. Costar. Capt. Durfey, will sail tor Sau Francisco about the same time. She is nearly a new ship, and was built for the East India trade. Her commander has made some ot the quickest trips on record between here and New Orleans. Instructions have been sent to the different custom houses, from the Secretary of the Treasury, to the effect, that as all vessels clearing for California will probably stop at some 'foreign port on their way, they must clear for a foreign port and a market. By this means the value of the goods sent out will be got at, as in foreign manifests the value is stated, which is not the case in coastwise manifests. The Secretary also sayB that the law relative to the ventilation, fcc , of passenger ships, does not apply to vessels bound tor California.

The fine bark Lanerk, Capt. Woodbury, cleared thu forenoon for San Francisco, with 120 passengers, whose names are suppressed until she has sailed. Among them are the members of the "Nepoaset California Trading and Mining Company" and the "Roxbury California Mining and Trading Company." The L. has also on board, among her passengers, the "Boston Mechanics' Mining Company," and the "Norfolk and California Mining and Trading Company." Her manifest is of goodfy size, embracing two-hundred and fifty-eight articles of entry. The Springfield Republican says:?"A 'small company, called the Franklin Mining Company, hcsbeen formed in this town, and intend starting next week for California by way of the Isthmus. They sail from New To.k." The fine bark Helen Augusta, on the stocks at Newburyport, has been bought by a Boston firm, and Capt. Frederick Myrick, and is to proceed to California. She was to be launched yesterday. The gold excitement in New Bedford does not seem to abate.

Letter About Modern Opera In New York. New York Hotel, Saturday morning. Mr Dear Sir:?When I informed you that I intended te make my dtbut at the new modern Opera House, you asked me to give you my honest opinion of the present concern. 1 told you I would do so, and, upon my honor, I really intended to have complied with your request; but 1 must be excused m part. The fact is, when I got inside of the building, (which is miserably arranged, and in excessive bad taste,) and looked about upon the people there, the associations connected with many old faces made me neglect the opera, and think upon the " ups and downs" of life, and the strange changes that take place in a commercial city in a few years. Let me see. It's now about fifteen years since we had such a time in starting the Italian Opera in New York, and put up the old Opera House, at the eorncr of Leonard and Church street. And did we not have fun in those days 1 Most of us suffered some?the .6,000. Private boxes, eh! But, if we did spend money freely in those days, we had money to spend; and, what is more, we got the worth of our money. There was no humbug and bad management. We had over the choices1 spirits and voices that Italia could furnish, or money procure. The Italian Opera then, was what it purported to be. But the old familiar faces?the old school?the aristocratic families?our real fashionable citizens, and people who really have a correct and critical taBte, and could appreciate such music as we had at that time?where are they now! Fifteen years do make changes; and I pledge you my word that, at the end ot alto tecondo, I had to leave the place?I was sick and disgusted. I have but little to say about the opera or the performers. Trufli, poor girl, seemed sadly out ot sorts. The last time I heard her, I think, was in Milan. 1 telt bad?the contrast was painful?then bhe sang as she can sing when she is sure ot being paid, and has an audience that can discriminate and appreciate her excellencies. As it was, she seemed to do as much as could be expected to an audience that, out of the whole number present, I'll take oath, there were not twenty people in the place who could have discovered the difference, it she had sang in Choctaw. Her notes were poured lorth exactly as if she had an idea that the management had broke. The other characters were so so, all but the choruses?they were execrable; but this I thought nothing of, when I found out who they|were. 1 was informed by a person who sat near me, that the manager, Mr. Fry, (by the way, tell me, who is this Mr. b ry 1?is he that rgther conceited chap who took the Gazette in 1'hiladelphia of! the hands of my old triend WalBh, turned editor and smashed the paper? broHe the concern f?fry, try?XI is t&miliar?I don't know bat I have got the name mixed up In my mind with a Mrs. Fry?a celebrated female pnson| vis'ter about London, whose work I have read or heard of ; but never mind that.) "Mr. Fry," be said, "gave out tickets to needy young men, who had good voices, and allowed such to bring their relatives, or female friends, without Cay, provided they sang as chorus singers." Not a ad idea that. Trie scenery of the new piece was out of sense and out of date. The costumes were ditto. I was astonished that Truffi, who has taste, should have appeared in a dress, m the first act, that remmded me very forcibly ol an old heirlotm,?a dress worn by one of my great great f;rand-mothers, in New England, before the revoution. As tor the nobles of the court of a Span* ish king, their dresses arc not those usually worn by the ragamufhn banditti in all respectable modern o)>eras. Now, a word about the persons present. Who, do you suppose, was the first man I met, on ascending the stairs to the first tier of boxes 1 He was a a little fellow from Connecticut, whom I first knew sweeping an office in Wall street. He knew me at once. Do yoa remember the old cellar, long vears ago 1 Did I think, then, when I used to allow you to knock of]' the 4 <u>d 4 per cent discounts for two or three days loan on drafts on Boston and Philadelphia, that I was furnishing you with thelwherewuh to shine in sfter years, as the main pillar of fashion, and the patron of the Itsli an HrutPa 1 Ua A\ A nnt caom f A oninw f ha Anara II (MA VJIVitt i AAV. UAU BVVUI ?V VUjXIJ ?UV 1 u. lor he wu outside in the lobby when I entered and when 1 came away. He made hi* money outside?in the street. Only to think, in white kids and patent leathers !! I met a large number of men there, who I knew could appreciate Truffi. They were dressed carefully and in good taste. Those were the Italian, French, and Spanish barbers and kair dressers; Delmonico's domttttqun, and the waiters in the French hotels generally, they were at the Opera to hear music. I saw there, a German errand boy m my own store many years ago; the fellow had the impertinence to ofler to shake hands with me! He asked me into his private box. . I will do him the justice te say that the ladies in that box were dressed in exceeding good taste. His wife had been a dress-maker, ana she was there with her sisterB. Is it possible that the brokers now lead I the musical world 1 Why, there were more brokers in the place, that I once knew, than I supposed were now in existence.? I remarked this fact to a former cashier of a Wall stnet bank, whom I met in the lobby. His reply was, that the brokers aud clerks in dry-gooas stores in Broadway, the Bowery, Canal and Catharine streets, were the main support of the Opera. My friend pointed out ?o me a large number of exceedingly well dreiaed individuals, whom he said used, in one day, to be denominated blacklegs, but were now known as the fancy men, who congregated in haunts in Broadway, near the Bowery theatre and Park Row. The females with these individuals were very well behaved, and not gaudily dressed. The ladies who were with the dry-goods young men were evidently respectable people. In fact, I think they appeared more modest, and made less show ana rustling than the wives and daughters of iny old friends the brokers. But I am stak of the subject. 1 have heard this si me opera played fifty times in the most celebrated opera bouaea on the Continent, and I assure you l should not have reeognined the characters, reentry, costumes, or incidents, bad it aot beea for the mimic tad the bills. I must do the management justice, and say that they deserve a great deal of credit for the originality with which they have got up this piece. The orchestra was so bo. I should judge they were not paid more than day wages, from the manner in which they performed. I must mention the conductor; he is the most amusing character I ever saw similarly situated ; a sick monkey never made more amusing gestures; his grimaces made two little eirlB near me go into con- | vuleims? their mother had to send them nome.? The little fellow, perched upon a stool, with his litt e stick, worked like a beaver; he evidently felt the opera rested on his shoulder bones. The management should pay him high he earns his money. I was surprised to hear the sweet notes of a flute, which 1 knew I hid heard years ago. I loosed at the performer, and found I was not mis- ( taken. Ah. this is a world of changes! Poor, amiable Kyle, to have become ao reduced in circumstances as to make that exquisite Hute of his talk m suck an orchestra and to such an audience! Now is it possible that men of standing, taste, and respectability will patronise, or in the slightest deg're countenance, such an abortive, miserable humbug aa tbis so callaA Italian Opera is, and must ptove to be 1 Brokers, barbers, gamblers, dry-goods clerks, and foreign boot-blacks, attempting to give tone and direction to the respectable, influential classes ot the community! I am shocked ; my nervous system is prostrated, and 1 shall cut the Opera. This is my first and last visit until this bubble burst up, and the Opera goes into the hands of men who have some tangible position in the community, and who are known to possess a refined musical taste, and the ability to sustain it. Excuse me, my dear s?r, for trespassing upon your patience by my lengthy epistle; but you desired me to express my opinion to you, after I had paid a visit to the Astor Place Opera. Ihavefrank]y given it to you in my own ? ay, and alter my own fasnion. I omitted to mention the gallery?I was not up there. It appeared to be tolerably well filled. 1 asked an old acquaintance?a religious, respectable man, in one ot the sli|is?what class of people they were! He replied to me in French, " can*ult." 1 observed females, as well as males, and the gallery was nearly one-halt filled. The remainder ot the house, I should judge, was, at tie very least, one-third full?it was certainly one-quarter full. These views are part'y private. I would not wish to hurt the feelings of many very respectable friends whom I met the other evening, and whom I had not seen since my return from Europe; they might suspect me of being your correspondent, should you publish this letter in Paris?which, for this reason, I would prefer your not doing. Candidly?in the old opera time, years ago, we | naa our DUi.aing at tue corner ol Leonard and Chutcti streets. The fashionable musical world U6rd then to come to it, from the fashionable parts of the city. There has been a complete turn-about. Now, the Opera House is in a fashionable quarter of the city, and the great proportion of its frequenters, I should judge, hailed from the purlieus of where the old Italian Opera House used to stand.

The Prmient'i Mutant w relation to the Treaty ?Mine tola, etc. After tbe transaction of bustnesa in the Hnn of no especial public importanc , the President of tbe United States communicated a message, in reply to the resolution of the House of the 5th instant, calling lor certain papers connected with the ratification of the treaty between this country and Mexico. He incloses a mass of documents, such aa efltcial letters, and a copy of the inatruc. tiona to our commissioners, who were sent ts Mexico with the treaty as amended by the American Senate. Their duty was to get it ratified by Mexico, with the least practicable delay, and ts explain to the Mexican Minister the reasons which influenced me Senate in making the amenlments. This they were to do by conferences, and were not to resort to diplomatic notes, except when absolutely necessary. Their instructions did not extend to a modification of the treaty in any of its 1 provisions. It was proper that the amendments of the American Senate should be explained, and explanations were made by our Secretary of Stats, in March, 1848, under tfie direction of the President of the United Slates These were communicated to the Senate of the United States, and published by their authority. During the time the treaty, as amended, was before the Congress of Mexico, the explanations of the Secretary of Slate were known to them. On the 8th of May, 1848. the Mexican President submitted thtm, ana on the 28th of May, the Mexican Congress approved the treaty, without amendment or alteration. The final action took plac* before the American commissioners had any communication with the Mexican government. Oa i ha next day, the commissioners were presented I* the Mexican government, and delivered an address, to which ihe President of that republic replied. The protocol referred m w?? r.<?ura?a ??1 ? ? 6U>UVU lUVICIjr U an explanation of the amendments. The treaty was returned Irom Mexico on the fourth of July, 1848, and was then proclaimed as the aupreme lair i the land. Neither the papers nor the protocol were communicated to the Senate; it rarely hapena, in such cases, that all the accompanying patera are sent. When these were received, peaoo was restored, the first instalment of three millions was paid, the blockade had been raised, and our troops were on their return home; the treaty was binding on both parties, and, in a great degree, had been executed. It was not competent tor the President and the Senate combined to annul the treaty. The commissioners did not regard the protocol as a part ot the ireaty, or as modifying the amendments of the Senate. They had no authority to alter or modify their instructions, which were, is eflect, to procure the ratification of the treaty, and with the least delay to send it to Washington. The President says that he was convinced that the Mexican gpvernment did not regard the protocol as a part of the treaty. He then enters into an argument to shew that the protocol is merely explanatory. In the House, the chairman of the Committee oa Territories reported the Senate bill to give a Territorial government to Mtnesota, with amendments, one of which proposes that the act shall take effect on the tenth of March next. This is to give ths incoming President the patronage which will result. It is highly probable that this bill will become alaw before the adjournment of Congress. in the Supreme Court, to-day, Justices Woodburv, Daniel, and Nelson, coincided in the views of Chief Justice Taney, delivered yesterday, adverse to the opinion expressed by the other members, that the alien passenger laws of New Yoik and Massachusetts are unconstitutional. G. "Washington, Feb. 8, 1841. The Prtstdinl'i Menace?Alien Patiengert?Pubtic Printing?The Hudson Bay Company. The President sent into the House, to-day, hta explanation ot the "protocol." It appears to ba all right enough. It is a mere trick of diploma*? ?that's all. Mr. Webster introduced in the Senate a resolution, instructing the Judiciary Committee to inquire into the expediency ot providing by law far securing against vessels entering the United States, with alien passengers; that said passengers shall not become a charge upon the public; or, in other words, providing for the exclusion of foreign pampers. The setting aside the State alien passenger taxes as unconstitutional, in yesterday's decision Ot the Supreme Court, we presume, promoted Mr. Webster to taks this early step to supply the vacuum which, from the declared nullity ot the Stat# laws, will be created. The resolution lies ovsr till to-morrow. The Senate, to-day, have been debating two or three private claims. Among the spectators m thn galleries were the Chippewa Indians, in alt tho loyalty of grease, ochre, Spanish brown, beanf clawa, tin bracelets, turkey feathers, and flannel. The poor fellows have been shifted away from their old hunting grounds, and they come to ask the United States to give them a piece ot land om which they may live; and we hope they will get it, and go back to make the hearts ot the old people glad at the good news. We learn that the successful bidders for tho public printing ot this city, are Mr. Tawers, a book and job punter, and a young man of the Uniom office. Messrs. Wend. II and van Benthuvsan will lege $15,000 to 120,000 on their contract, and yet these new bidJern propose to do the work in better style, on better pa|>er, and from five to tan ner cent cheaper. We wish them luck ot their bargain. We understand that the British minister has again caused to be presented to the Senate, the p< pi sitton ot the Hudson's Bay Company, tor selling out all their part in the United States part ot Oregon, tor $2,000,000; this property consists ot torts, trading houses, farms, cattle, sheep, farming implements, See., at various locations held by the company south of 4!) dcg. The matter will, probably, be taken up in the Senate ; and in reference toils real value, that can be readily ascertained, if it is not already, from application, to American citizens residing in Oregon. We tiavo a fierce, wild, wintry day, with the unusual accompaniment of a snow storm from the south-east. WashinuTon, Feb. 9, 1849. Patent Medic met? Vintert?Far California?The Claim BUI?Branch Mint. The bill ot Dr. Edwards, lately reported to the House from a select committee, to prevent the patenting of any article or preparation whatever aa a medicine, is a kind of free trademeasure, although ot so intended, which, rather than close, wilt open the door still wider to every description ?f " curatives," for many geniuses who have the taot to gather roots and make medicines will aot be shut out by patents, and will be saved the ezpeaa* of procuring them. If the Doctor could procure t .1 l:n ... ?. ?-_i- i .-i I (lie fWBBngc vi a uui iu picvriu prujiic iruill lil*lBg ' any medicine at all, the object sought to be obtain ' ed would be reached. On the same principle there would be no intemperance. But individuate will continue to dose themselves, and it does net matter whether they swallow the stuffs of the empiric or the regular practitioner. Among the visiters now m the city, are Judge Forsyth, from Ulster county; ex-Governor Dickinson, of New Jersey: ex-Governor Seward; Robert and John Tyler, of the old dynasty; Mr. Lawrenoe. a retired merchant et New York; Mr. Croswell.of the Albany Argui; General walbridge, who in , " figuring around;" and a delegation of the Chippewa Indians. General Alexander Anderson, formerly a United States Senator f rom Tennessee, is to head a party of gold seekers, who are to start from Independence, Missouri, in March next. This has been one of tbe dullest days of the session. The House were for more than two hoars engaged in the consideration of amendments to the bill to establish a board of three commissioners to settle claims against the United skates. An effort was made, when the committee rose, to lay the whole subject on the table, but this failed? yeas, 64; nays, 108?and, befors adjournment took place, the bill wan ordered to be engrossed for a bird reading. It will, probably, pass to-morrow. The first section of it provides that a board, fsr the settlement of claims against the U nited States, ; shall be established, to consist of three commissioners to be appointed by the Piesident, by and with the advice of the Senate. They are to take an oath before a judge of the Circuit Court for the District of Columbia, faithfully and impartially tc execute the duties of his office to the beat of his judgment and ability, and each commissioner .>> .11 r?reive a eomnenulinn nl thr** Ihnuiuil five hundred dollars per annum, to be paid quarterly from the treasury of the United State*. 2 That clatma againat the United State* shall, as heretofore, be presented to and settled by the proper accounting officers; and if, upon any such settlement, the claimant shall be dissatisfied, he may appeal to the coard of commissioners S. All petitions asking for relief from Congress on account of any claim against the gwvernment of the United States, shall, as aoon as the same shall have Seen presented to either House of Congress, be refern a to the board of commissioners. 4.
