St L'?nis. Jin 30, 1849. i Important Dtcititm?pr^JuthU A/f-iut of Honor. I have heretofore nvnitonrd the pendency, ia the Supreme Court ol Mum:*, nt a question deeply involving the intetests of ihi* city. I allude to the dike case. The city commenced the construction of a dike, running I nun the foot of Bloody Island to the Illinois shore, with a view to turn the curTent ot the Mississippi to the Missouri shore, and thus improve the St. Louis harbor. The authorities of Illinois laid an injunction on the work. The case was tried before the Circuit Court of St. <Clair county, Illinois, and the injunction was dissolved. An appeal was laken to t&e Supreme 'Court ol the State, and, as I have just learned by telegraph, has oeen decided by reversing the decision of the court below. The despatch is us follows:? The Court dseidss that the F. as tern channel Is navigable, and a pert of th? common highway; that the State nay fill It up. so as there I* still a free and commodious passage left open to the citizens of the other 8tates in the main oheuoel. fbts channel being a part of the public htshwey. the owners of the land ?ould not obstruct without the eon-ent of the Legislators, and if they do. tbny erect a nuisance: that the Court osdnot MBc'loa a public nutMuae, although It if tatiafled the public good *ou>d be promoted by it Decree reversed, and the toju notion made perpetual. What such anuiBance wnuid be, that wub calculated to promote "the public good," is something of a mystery. We have quite a promising prospect of a brace of duels here to-day, growing out of the vexed question of free aoilisni. Challenges have passed, and the two sflairs will probably come ofl tomorrow. 1 will write particulars by next mail. akol's. St. Loins, February 1, 1849. One of the Duels. I promised, in my last, to give you details relative to the two expected duels to have taken place yesterday. With regard to one, I believe it is yet in abeyance. The other was to have come oft yesterday; but owing to what we call in the|West ** taking water," on the part of one of the parties, our goodly citizens were not gratified with hearing, this morning, ot the effusion of blood. The facts in reference to the latter case are about these:?Last summer an effort was made in this city, by some halt-dozen persons, to get up a free soil party. A paper, advocating the free soil principles, was commenced, and it maintained a feeble existence until the morning of the election, when, with the eflort which hud brought it into being, it expired. Among the getters up of this party and Saper, was understood to be Mr. Francis P. Blair, r. The gentleman seemed very much chagrined at the failure of the (no doubt) very well intended design to distract the democratic party here, and after "resting a spell," essayed the attempt in another manner F or several weeks past, numerous articles have appeared in the Republican, a leading whig paper of this city, over the signature of" Radical," in which the design was very evident, to create division in the democratic ranks. The rationale ot the argument was, that Hon. Thomas II. Benton was a tree soiler; that the Legislature of Missouri had oflered an insult to said Senator, by seriously considering a string of resolutions denouncing the Wilmo: proviso; ergo, that all democrats in St Louis who did not denounce the Legislature for such otlence, were the enemies of Mr. Benton. Preposterous as it may seem, the writer continued to urge this matter through a series of numbers of the Hepubliran, and denounced byj name those he atl'ected to think should take a prominent st<.nd against the antiWilmot movement, but who yet held themselves aloof from the question. Among otners who thus fell within the ban of his displeasure, was Mr. L. Pickering, senior editor of the It A mi* U?ion. The attack on this gentleman was, at first, guarded, but at length became exceedingly personal and oflensive, charging him witti being tlie tool of others, and striking at his credit, in * business point of view. On Monday last. Mr. Pickering called on the editor of the Republnan,and demanded the name of the author. It was given, as tnatoi F. PBlair, Jr., whereupon, in the Union of Tuesday, Mr. P., over his own proper signature, pronounced Mr. B. a liar, cpwitrd, scoundrel, punpy, and the usual et relet at in such cases. Tins led to a formal challenge from Mr. Blair, to which Mr. P. re juivu) iu cuuDiautr, mat j-'aai CTniia [? cuiuucu no acceptance, but that he was willing to give him what satisfaction he might desire; and, to allow him an opportunity, propose d to be on the square fronting the Planters' House, at 4 o'clock last evening. Mr. Blair, through his fiiend, objected to this, on the score that "some one might get hurt," and dwelt with considerable feeling on trie barbarous practice of "s.reet fighting." The friend of Mr. P. then proposed to dispense with fire-arms, and use bowie kmvesalone, from which passers by could receive no injury; but Mr. B.'s friend was understood to decline. Mr Pickering then, acting on the right ol the challenged party, to dictate time, place arid weupnns, oflered his ultimatum as above, excepting with regard to weapons, leaving Mr Blair free to use such as he deaired. To this, there was no definite reply, though the challenged party warned his opponent that he would be on the ground, and exp-cted Mr. B. to be there also. It was raining in torrents, howev- i er, and Mr. Blair did not appear, either through j apprehension of "hurting somebody," or getting | his pumps soiled. Mr. Pickering waited an hour for him, and then "adjourned." So ended this "duel." How the other will terminate, is a mat- j *ei oi conjecture; out i win duty aavisc you 01 uic important affair.

Tbe stock market 1* in a eery strange condition. The prospect of a great rise in all kind* of eteek* never was better, notwithstanding whioh, the "hears make the most money. Every Indication Is in favor of an Inflation In prloe* for tvary speoles of >kcpetty; all the elements of prosperity are in a sound and healthy state; and a movement has already com- j meneed it the sonro* of all eommerolal advancement, which nut, u It extends, earry activity Into every branch of tndustry, and give employment to all idle capital. Yet, in the faou *f those things, the bearj have thl idnittl* a"d are able to Keep down prio*S for steaks. It is bsrd'y pnssihU for this to oatiaue for any length of time particularly as tn? prime oaura of tbif axtraotdlnsry stst* of things Is purely loeal and Bust soon. In the ordinary operations of our flnanolal policy, be rent red It is nothing but the present position of our money mirket that gives the bears the ascendancy ; and aa soon as the Independent Treasury not Is prrperty administered, and the dspo it* are distributed, there will be a oompleta roro" lotion, by which the bulla will be able to realise all their most sanguine antialpatlons. Tb# bear* era watching the movements of the Treasury da* psrtment very olosely. and depend upon a continuation of the present polloy of the SeoreUry, for the remainder of bis term of office. Two weeks from to-morrow oloees the present administration, and the advent of the new government will be hailed with joy by a Urge majority of the mercantile classes. They expect a changa in the eonduct of public affairs. Indifferent almost as to ths nature of the change, miej iook tor sua are anurous or a rair ana propar administration of the commercial and flnanoial systems, according to tba strict Utter of the law, that all may regnlate their operation* accordingly. It U to be hoped that the Treasury department, at leaat, will be free from and independent of all Wail street cliques and all stook speculating Influence, and tbattbeflnanoeaof the government will be managed solely with an eya te the beat interaata of tba people at large. The amonnt on deposit in the Sub-treasury of thU elty, yesterday, was about three million* of dollars; and as the accumulation has been going on in other parts aa well as thtv it is within limits to estimate the aggregate amount, at this time, aa deposit to the credit of the 8*oretary of the Treasury in the different depositories, at six and a half millions of dollars. Mora than two millions of this sum has been withdrawn from the channel* of oemmeroe dl reotly oonnected with this elty, and has, of oourse, had a depressing effeot upon this market. On the Oth of Deoember last, the banks of this oity had en hand $5 860,424 In apeoie; and, aooordlng to an estimate mad* amesg ths Wall street banks, the oity hanks had, after the oloee of business yesterday, four and a halt millions of dollars, showing a decrease, in a little more than twe months, of 91,360,424. If ths drain upon the banks continues at this rate, they will soon be pretty well rsduoed; but .we have no idea suoh will he the case, even In the event of the importations continuing large for any length of time. We are daily looking for large arrivals of geld from California, and silver from Mexico. We have already advice* Of Hhlnm?nta for thla r\e\rt nmnnntino th vam<a*?1w ana million of dollars; and we have no doubt the re* eeipts in tbia country, within the next three months, will be between two and three millions of dollars. By the arrival of the steamship California at Panama, and departure for San Franoleoo, we know that the line between these ports is established, and this faot enables us to form pretty oorreot calculations relative to later advices frem our California possessions. The steamers forming that line will afford the safest, chespest, and most expeditious oonveyanoe for the transportation of specie from San Kranoisoo to New York; and we shall receive remittances of gold dust from the mines, hereafter, by every arrival from Cbagres. It is about time we received large amounts of gold 'rem California, to fill the vacuum created by the large shipments of specie and the outlay required for tbe expeditions fitted out from this port. A capital of at least three millions of dollars has already been embarked in this business-of which, at least one and a half millions of dollars have been withdrawn from us in silver coin, principally of small denomination. This movement, so far, has had a tendency to tighten the money market; and we require this moment, at least five millions of dollars, in speoio, to piaoe this section of country in a condition as sonnd and as strong as upon the commencement of the excitement. It has been, even thus far. of infinite advantage to ship-owners and to many branches of bnsineis ; bntit has restricted onr resources to such an extent, that it will require full a twelvemonth to place us in a better position than <t,.t ?- TV,.,-.. ?k --- -- . ? .. mi|<u.niii uia> tor to bo taken Into consideration, in eonneotion with this gold movement, and that ii, the cost of maintainirg the army of emigrant* which i* swarming into San Francisco from ail parts of the world.

Thin is simply for food, to sustain health and strength. This is a large sum, nearly the whole of which is to bs dag ont of the earth. There is no other resource in that country. They have nothing to give for food but gold, and if the supply of that material fails, what is the alternative? Starvation From all the ao" counts reoelved from the gold region, we can arrive at but on* conclusion,rwhioh is, that the supply of gold is Inexhaustible; and we have no j fears hut that many anticipations formed relative to the mineral wealth of that oountry, will be realizedIt is, however, well enough te look at this movement in all its bearings, and calculate the chances of suooess.? if there be as mueh gold in California as represented^ I at lsaat forty million* of dollars worth must be extract- i *d from the soil within the next twelve months, te pay for shipments already made, and those which will be required within the next year, of merely the necessaries of life. a urn auuvieu imoie tinipug me quotations or me principal speculative stocks in this market, for each da y of tba past week, and at the oloee of the week previous. !

We saw it stated some days ago, that the Brt. tioh Minuter here had again called the atteatioa of Congress, or certain members thereof, to the offer of the Hudson Bay Company, to dispose of all their property in Oregon within the jurisdiction of the United States. It will be remembered that this subject was before Congress last session; and although gieat efloits were made by certain outsiders to carry it, it was postponed, or laid over for investigation. The amount demanded by the vvanj'u u; ??-v ?v?j j?? vvlOV lOU IllilllUUBUI UO|? lars; but untortunately the schedule of property t be given aa an equivalent was not made out ia quite so definite a manner. There was a shadowy haziness about it?assort ol Indian summer weather appearance?anything but satisfactory. Thera were so many buildings; but as to their size, See., nothing whs said; they are doubtless about the size ot a lump of chain. Thousands of sheep and catile, Sec Sec. See ; in a word, everything necessary tor selling up an extensive dairy and grazing establishment? and grass is both cheap and plenty in Oregon? all lor the moderate sum before mentioned. Congress, however, declined even to nibble, much less bite, at the bait, last session. What will be done this, we of course do not know. The transaction maybe all perfectly fur and proper; but even at the present moment, it is scarcely like Ca sai's wife. A gentleman, formerly well known'in Wall street, is the most active in tbe matter?he is, in tact, the agent of the company here, we believe. For jus services last session (ia lobbying, See ) he received from the company no it ss a bum than ten thousand dollars. Now what was '.his immense expenditure lor?where was tho necessity for it. iu a just and equitable claim ! We re [Wirt, it may be all right; but before any bill is patsed giving away two millions ol dollars of the money of the people of the I'mted States to a foreign company, of no matter how respectable a ttanaiwr, we hope the whole matter will be thoroughly sifted.. Let us know what the property is?whether it would be otany use to this government, and if the ,.rice is, or is not, exorbitant. If all tiiese enquiries can be answered satisfactorily, purchuae it?but not otherwise. Washington, Feb. 16, 18411. The Doings in Congrcst?The Cabinet?Tfie Meaturet and the Policy of General Taylor. Excepting a ft w spasmodic convulsions on tho negro question, Congress has been in a state of semi-torpidity this session. The Presidential election teems to have produced an incurable collapse. The business of both houses, and especially of the Stnate, has been listlessly pursued, or studiously evaded. They have made more long speeches than in the same limit of time in any previous Congress; but they have amounted to little or nothing, except a multiplication of words to no purpose. As far as the Senate is con [ cetned, everything remains to ba done; the Panama road?the continental central road?the territories?the boundary of Texas?cheap postages? all radical questions, ail of great moment, and all of them demanding prompt uction, are yet all ot them delayed. Nor have we any hope this session for any ot them, except cheap postages, and that bill, if carried through the Senate early next week, may be carried through the House in season for the signature ot President Polk. Th? others, as also the Sub-treaBury, Llivera and Harbors, ivc., must, from all appearances, inevitably go over to General Taylor; so tnat, it this be so, the following will be the schedule upon which ho will have to act:? 1. The slavery question in thu territories. 2. The boundary of Texas. 3. The Sub-Treasury. 4. Rivers and harbors. 6. A modilicatlon of the tariff. 0. The Panama road. T. The continental railroad. 8. A revision of the Consular system. Here we have scope and verge enough to try th* mettle cf old /acliary to the utmost; and the public miiy well a.WUt, with strong anxiety, the lirat indications ot the policy of the new administration upon all these important questions. They will all of them be pushed to some modification or settlement, or repeal; but, as yet, we are altogetker in the dark. The signs, however, increase, of a bold whig policy; and the return of Mr Clay increases the confidence of a restoration of his platform, ns that upon which the incoming administration is to stand. We learn tliut Mr. Clay will not be here at the executive session ot March?that he will Keep back till next December, provided always, that there shall not occur the necessity and the call of an extra convocation of Congress?an expedient ..... TV.,.!... ...,ll ?... ?.i, v>iiicii| nc uriirfc, ntn. Aujiui win uui auwpv iui the last extremity. It appears, also, that Mr. Clay is not yet pledged to the administration. Nobody exacted it. Nobody desired it: but the friends ot General Taylor do expect that Mr. Clay will be rather the advocate than the opponent ot the new administration in its appointments, and in its general policy, beeauEe it is expected that General Taylor will be rnther tire endorser of the acts of Congress than the dictator of its legislation ; and that in the i matter ot appointments he will give the whigs, at ; least, u huge majority of the places to he vacated by resignation* and discharges. But while wa have reeson to expect this, we have also reason to suppose that Gen. Taylor will have at least one denioeratin his cabinet; audit Jeticrson Davis or Col. Benton should be called to the War Depattment, there would be no occasion for either s.irpnte or alarm, tor it would assuredly be consistent with the programme ot the late campaign. General Tuylor is tree, either to choose a whig cabinet entire, or a mixed cabinet, while certainly lie is not at liberty to select an entirely democratic cabinet, it he would respect the expression of the sentiments of the people. Nor is he entirely at liberty in his general appointments, on the other hard, t<> disn aard the claims ot the democrats, for without their support he would have bee* defeated. While, theretore, we expect his cabinet ' to be whig, it not wing as au unit, we do not expect that he will consider himself aa elected to retaliate, ad libitum, upon democratic ollice-holders; and while we expect that his general policy will be whig, we do not believe that he will employ the patronage ot the government to coerce Congress inio submission. We expect his policy will be more the policy of Monroe than that of (ieneral i Jackson, und Ins administration more like; that of John (Juincy Adams than that ot John Tyler. We have good faith in the good intentions of General Taylor; and wc hold that it is the duty of i all good wishers of the government to give him a fair chance. If he carries out his pledges as well j as James K. Polk, he will do well; and we believe ' that he has the nerve to do it. Mr. Polk had the advantage of a popular system, and a united party, but Generul Taylor has an equal advantage in the ' eonfidei ce of the people. We had another dinner party or two in town i this evening, and a lion at Coleman's. We understand, this evening, tnat, in consideration of the expected pressure of quests at Coleman's, during the inauguration, General Taylor will take up his temporary quarters at Willard's hotel, near the west end of the avenue, lie had nut authorized a decisive engagement ot rooms until the arrival ot Col. Bliss, although Mr. Blackwell, the present proprietor of Coleman's, had been given to understand, by a letter from a friend of General Taylor, that his house would be selected. Col. Bliss, who was here a few days ago, we suppose has settled the question. With the President and Vice President both at Coleman's, we should have had such a pressure as to debar, perhaps, all ideas of'comfort to our distinguished fellow citizens; while, under the arrangement as it now stands, they have some prospect ot one hour's rpst in the twenty-four for ten days preceding the inatwration.
