The New Administration. The President elect will probably be in Washington to-morrow or next day. The selection ol a cabinet, the adoption ot measures, and the general arrangement of the adm lustration, are going on with considerable activity. We have received the fiist intimations of the formation ol the cabinet through the electric telegraph. Mr. Clayton, of Tkduware, is to be Secretary ol State, and other distinguished men are mentioned in a lump, in connection with the other departments, who are generally of the same stamp in politics. They are all whigs?moderate wings?wings of ihe present generation ; and are not ol that antique description of whigs who contended so nidiiiully, but so unfortunately, throughout the whole udmiinstration of General Jackson. The old whigs? Clay,Webster, tt id ntnnt gsaus?are pushed asidet to make way for a new class of men, who have heretofore borne only u secondary place in the nolitical movtmertsol the labt quarter of a cen tury. Thus we go. General Taylor's election to the presidency was a great revolution, and the formation of his cabinet and the udupfion of his measures will give the nation some inkling of what we may expect for the future. In the letters and speeches of General Taylor, heretofore promulgated, that distinguished man alludes so forcibly to the first Presidents as 10 lead the public to believe that he intends to follow the example of Washington, more particularly in the line of his public conduct, than any ol our torrner chief magistrates have done. This is a very natural feeling to be entertained by a pure-minded man, untainted with politics, and one who has been elevated Irom a different sphere of action, and placed at the Head oi a great republic, by a spontaneous expression of public opinion. General Taylor comes into the Presidency fresh from the battle-field, ful of patriotism, little known to partizane, and with little party feeling. Jn these respects he goe it.to that high < ffice in much the same way that General Washington did. The career of the father ol his country during the Beven years' re volutionary war, was one of hard work, of great I privation, and ol thr exercise oi mighty qualities. 11 w us not a career of political intrigues here, o caucus there; and he did not reach the highes' office in the public gilt by a variety of tricks. It was a career of patriotism, and his election was the unanimous voice ol the American people. But although the previous lite of Washington end Taylor may present some tmits in common, the u-en with whom the former had to act in nianagiugthe allairs ol government were altogether diflerent from those with whom General Taylor will be associated at the pr?sent day. Washington had with him the men ol the revolution as Ins assoc'ates, nndivid? d by personal, local, or partisan feelings; but meit who passed through a long war, whicn stimulated the general leelmgs ol patiiotism within them. General Taylor, on the contrary, conies to Washington in the midst of the present generation ol politicians, who are altogether diflerent Irom the pati iots of the revolution?whose nudes of action and moral principles are as opposite as the poles, and who nave risen to power and pre-eminence by the little paltry acts of politici ins, and political intrigue No doubt the men whom he will select for his cabinet, line the leading men of the two parties, ate sound, talented and worthy, according to the signification ol those terms in the present day; but they belong to a ditiert nt era from jhat ol Washington, and will occupy a held ol action entnely diverse from that which a pureminded man, like General Taylor, would expect, coming Irom the scenes with whicu he has been associated, and imbued with the principles which have heretofore guided him Looking back at those antecedents, we cannot help foreseeing that as soon as General Taylor's cabinet shall have been inatalled?no matter who Will be the other men, in addition to those who are mentioned? there w II commence a quiet struggle betwreu the political principles ol the present age, anu those grand moral p uiciplea with which General Taylor hiius? It has been associated, and ?L.I i.i .1 . P .1 which irer-jiuiic mure most' ui wie ny ui vr aanington than those ot the present time. The cabinet will be made the tulcrain ot all the politicians throughout the country who want office, or to give a particular direction to the action of the government. General Taylor wi 1 be the great national conservative power ol the government, acting from different principles and looking to different results Irom hose of the members of the cabinet and their advisers This position of affairs will, no doubt, ciente difficulties that are not yet anticipated, in regard to measures an well as men. Jn another point of view, the acce.-sion of General Taylor is a moot remarkable revolution in the political hi.-tory o! the country, aud deserves a cairn and candid consideration before the rnmd can ccrne lo an accurate conclusion as to its consequences. It was during the administration of General Washington that tfie demon's of the two |>arties Which havt since agitated and governed th cum try, were developed, and went into separate and pving action General Washington's cabinet Was composed of boih ot these original el?mehU; and hence the difficulties with which he hud to contend privately, during both his terms, for sight years. ' >ne ol those elements succeeded in the election of John Adauu; and then commenced the open contest between the two pnties which agitaud this coui.tiy to the present day. From that period down to the time of John <4 lincy Adams, the democratic element ruled in the general government and throughout the country With tire defeat of John iiucy Ad him, aud the election of Gen Jackson, commenced a new phase of the same political action wntch characterised the republic. Parties were again divided, wuh a modified name, but with the same principles, arid the democratic party?the original party ? Thomaa Jefferaon? has, with thecxception of the four yeara of John Quincy Adams and one niooth under Gen. Harmon, governed this country Irom the beginning of the present century to Una day. For the firat time, therefore, in the hiatory of the republic, the old federal party, or the modern whiga, assume l>ower under the mantle of General Taylor; and here begina the very curioua experiment that will illubtrate their capability and capacity in conduct'ng the government of the country with mora success than hereiolore have followed their attempt* to reach power. One thing la certain at the beginning of the new administration. General Taylor, from his habits, hie life, his hiatory, and the mode of his election, cannot be held responaible lor any mistakea he may make in I is administration lie diaclaimsall sul*rior knowledge ot statesmanship, and brings into the Wliite liouae simply lioneaty, integrity and common sense. Hia modesty takea away much responsibility, and placea the onus on the shoulders of the cabinet, who will be responsible for the advice which they may give hun mall the practical concerns and details of the government. For all t rrors and mistakes that may be made?and ' to err ia human"?we shall, therefore, hold the cabinet of the m w administration responsible, and so we believe will the people of the United States Let us therefore watch and pray. Lii'.kj.s and Lir.m. Suits?A Maoniticbnt Movemknt ok ihk Oi'kra Aristooracv?What akb tiix Itioiirs of riiK 1'aicss 1?Several of our coteniporaries have stated that the management of the Opera aristocracy in this city, had commenced h libel suit against the New Ymk Herald, in which the damagie are estimated at twenty thousand (why not say a hundred thou"and!) dollars?a suit which covers the whole ground of criticism during the Opera Beason which has recently terminated. This is a very curious and unique movement, and it will bring out s me Very curious scenes before it shall terminate in any way. It is rather droll, too, that at the same time that this singular action was instituted in the Superior Court, there was another libel suit being tried in the same court, which, after a protracted examination of several dayB, terminated in lavor of the Herald, and against the unhappy plaintifl, Mr. Clarke, of No. 27 lleekman street. A report ol this latter case will be lound incur column? to-day. It will well repay a perusal; for it discloses some curious lacts in the education of lawyers, that will be new to many membris of the legal profession. Herealter, it may be hoped that under the new system ol law in this State, talenied cow feeders and intellectual milk men may become the Mansfields of the New York bench. We desire every one to read the charge of Judge Vanderpoel, which is one of the best and clearest, on the subject ot libel. which we have ever seen, laying down, as it does, the dut.es and responsibilities of a free and intelligent press, and the rights of individuals on the other side? and one which should be conned over by every one in this community. But the movement ol the Opera aristocracy against the critijucg, theatrical and musical, of the Mew York Herald, will probably be one of the most interesting investigations ot tins novel Reconnected, as it is, with lashion, with music, with art, and with every element of social life. In former years, the Italian Opera has been frequently attempted in this and other cities ot the Union; but it has been attended more as a novelty, as a curiosity, than as an element of social life and enjoyment. The attempt to create an exclusive 0,*?ra aristocracy in this country was never made till within the last two or three years, und its progress, both as a social element and ns a species of amusement, has been duly recorded in the columns of this journal. In every case where censure was deserved, either to managers or artists, we have given it; where merit disclosed itself in either, we have also given it; and in many respects, the columns ot this journal have been more devoted to the interests of art and artists of the highest and best description, than those ot any other journal in this community. But the introduction recently into this city, ol a new set ot manners, new modes of social developements, in the shape of an exclusive Opera aristocracy, as it may be called, bids fair now to become a subject ot discussion and comment throughout all the avenues of society in this metropolis and the whole country. In European countries, the Italian Opera lias been estub.islud in certain of the gresj capitals, as an amusement, and as a place for lounging, to ihe aristocracy of those monarchical | hdH despotic countries, and the introduction of it was in all cases accompanied by a certain freedom, not to say licentiousness, in manners, which has caused that class of society in the old world, to deteriorate in the moral scale, and lay the Inundation for the terrible revolutions which we see going on in that part ol the world. It is a singular tact in the history ol social life, that the attempt to organize an Op-ra arietociacy in this country, lias been followed by a similar deteriorut on in the propriety of manners and the character of amusements which hare , niuiked similar events in other lands. It is only i within the last two or three years that the libidinous and lascivious polka became the favored dance of our fashionable circles ; it is only within the last two orthree years that the shocking scenes of model artists have become common 111 this land, and which are now in full career, privately and publicly, in this nnd other cities; it is only within the last three or four years that gambling, as a science and a business, lias become fashionable at those splendid saloons which provide splendid supers?all of which are in violation of every moral and Christian rule. All those developements, debasing and demoralizing as they are, seem to occur at the time when an attempt was made to organize an exclusive Opera aristocracy in this city, which would look down on the rest of the world as low, vulgar, and common place, not worthy of either attention or observation. The action which the ()|**rtt aristocracy have commenced against the New York Herald will bring out, on the trial, some curious facts?noma curious scenes, and seme wonderful characteristics, that will be worthy the attention of the honeat, the moral, and the Chriatiaa portion of the American people. On that trial we shall have all the artista, and editors, and managers, and theatrical people, and clergymen, and saints, and gamblers of all kinds, on the stand for examination. It will really be a strange case, and will lead to strange develoj*-ments, and may do good to the moral structure and religious foundation of society in this country for years to come. We have yet much more to say on thiH subject; but enough for to-day Mi.u. Euphrasia Uorohrhk and Siohor Cokki.u.?We announced, some short time ago, the arrival of these delightful artists in the steamer Cambria. We learn that ihey will both perform at Washington city on the 28th instant. This will afford an opportunity to citizens gathered together in that metropolis, from all parts of the Union, to hear an artist who holds a high reputation in Europe for power of voice and uharm of singing. Corelli is also an artist of superiortalent. There can be no doubt but that these two artists will find at Washington city a reception and patronags as brilliaut as that which we hear she lately met wuh at Paris, and which will only be in harmony with her unquestioned and extraordinary Ulent. Fohrion Nswa.?The steamship Europt, Capt. Lott, will be due at this port on Saturday or Sunday next. She will bring two weeks' later intelligence. It will be important in a commercial i-ou.t of view.

We can |>oint, also, to a large number of collegiate establishments which have attained the highest character for learning and usefulness. A moat everything that the enlightened benevolence of the State and the disinterested liberality of individuals can attempt, has been done in order to soften the as|>erities of grammar, and safely conduct the daring student through the darkest passages of Euclid and the classics. The inestimable treasures of orthography, etymology, syntax, and prosody, are within the reauh of the offspring of the poorest citizen; while, by the praiseworthy labors of peripatetic " professors," the higher departments of the belUt Uteres are rendered accessible to the entire community for the small charge of fifty cents, at the door of Clinton Hall or the Tabernacle. Philosophical systems are manufactured to or der, as expeditiously and cheaply as " those five dollar suits" in Chatham street or the Bowery. The New England States turn out a dozen Platos per annum, and Aristotles are as plenty as blackberries, at Harvard and Yale. Columbia College annually gives us scores ot philosophers, who want nothing but beards to be fully equal to Socrates; while Kutgers Institute, with all the punctuality of old Father Nile, every stasou inundates us with "finished " young ladies, to whom " Latin la no more dtfHoile Than to a blank bird 'tis to wbiatle." Yet, with all our unparalleled progress in moral philosophy, grammar, spelling, and other occult subjects of study, we aie, in some respects, prolouadly ignorant ol several branches of knowledge which constitute the curriculum ol the National College at Washington. Nor is this strange. Under all the lorms ol government hy which mankind, from uge to age, have been made happy, there have been mysteries too sacred lor the common and vulgar eye. Like the invisible manager of that exciting domestic drama in which Mr. Punch has for so |ong a period delighted the public, there are agencies, perfoi ruing a most important part at Washington, of which the dear people know about as much as they do ol the mystic lore of Cornelius Agrippa.

Ill uiaoo Ul ilic licuiiic icmnmauii, pertonage obscurely hinted at in the extract from our Washington correspondence, at the head of this ariiele, and who is occasionally heard ol under the mysterious sobriquet of ' the lobby member V The whole career of the " lobby member " appeals to be involved in doubt and uncertainty. No one knows where he first saw the light. His birth, parentage, and education are concealed by an obscurity impenetrable even by the optics of Dominie Gnswold, who has written the biographies o! the seventy and seven hundred native poets ol America, and can tell you precisely when, where and how every precious mother's son of them was weaned, breeched, and saved from the whooping cough. The ? lobby member " is a short, thick set man, of about five and forty years of age, sallow complexion, and rather an obtrusive appearance. There is nothing very remarkable in his countenance, except the eye, which is cold, grey and quiet; and the nose, which is of a fiery redness, flames out like a beacon on a treacherous 6hore. The " lobby member" is emphatically a man of the world?that is to Bay, a man of the Washington world. lie has perfect self-possession; he is completely master of the fashionable games of " poker " and " cut-throat;" and since the lamentable decease of the celebrated General O'Don- | nell, he alone can lay any half doze i members of ) Contress under the table. It is not to bo wonder- I 1 ed at, then, that, possessing so many accomplish- 1 meats, the " lobby member " is, at Washington, almost omnipotent. He thoroughly understands his materials. Thus, he cajoleB youthful Congressmen into the library, and introduces them to the | fatal blandishments of shrewd politicians with ' bright eyes and pink bonnets. He overcomes a'l the scruples of an obstinate Senator by an excellent dinner at Coleman's. A judicious whisper behind the Speaker's chair has often decided the fate oi a bill. There is no knowing what has been done, or what has not been done, at a snug I supper at Copp's; and it need hardly be said that I the " lobby member" knows very well when to 1 lose money nt billiards. l'rivate bills are under the special surveillance oi the "lobby member." He is always prepared to prosecute a claim against the general government. He rakes up old ones out of the musty files of the < various departments; and when unsuccessful in ' these interesting historical searches, he invents i ' new ones. For a horse Killed in ihe Florida war, | \ he promises you from two hundred to live hundred j i dollars, minus the trifling commission ol sixty per | cent. Out of the French spoliations, prior to the yeareighteen hundred, he will assure you of quite a 1 resectable fortune. For the services of your ex- i J collent uncle, who got his leg broken at the battle \ t of Chippewa, he can get a hanasonie pension for j J his suflering widow. The letters and papers of i your wife's respectable grandfather, who sold b.*ef \ j and p< rk to General Washington's army, cau be i i reHdily disposed ot to Congress,lie Bays, and briuj, ' at the lowest, ten thousand dollars. But the great source of revenue to the "lobby member," is that derived from liictitious opposition to government contracts. When any important project is submitted to the general government, j in the execution of which its aid is sought, the j "lobby member" is immediately prepared with a rival scheme and a rival set of projectors. Not that 1 our hero, or his associates, has the remotest thought of carrying this scheme into effect. Not at all. The object is to create an interest in Congress sufficiently powerful to defeat the project which is submitted on the other side, in 811 good faith and sincerity. A sufficient number of members of Congress are ingeniously hood winked; and honestly believing that the pretended scheme is likely to be much more beneficial to the country than the other, they vote accordingly, and the result is that neither scheme can succeed. And now the genius of the lobby member shines forth in all its resplendent 1 lustre, lie sees only one way of adjusting the j matter. Let there be a compromise. He is all magnanimity, lie will withdraw his scheme ' "lor a consideration" The bargain is struck, i and the success of the plot is complete. The lobby member, we are sorry to Bay, is a nuisance and public disgrnce. We trust that his j term ot deception and swindling is approaching its , close. The establishment of a Board of Comrnis- | sinners of Claims, and a Home Department, will j terminate, it is to be hop?d, the career of the lobby member. We have long been convinced of the absolute neceisity of bot i these measures, in order to relieve both bouses of 'Congress of onerous duties which do not appropriately belong to them ; i and to remove many sources ol corruption and pro. j fhgate expenditure of the public time and public money.

Kdwards Lester's new drama, entitled "Kate Woodhull, or the Price of LlbcJ ty," was prevented for the first time at tbe Broadway Theatre last evening. The plot of the pleoe Is made up of incidents wbioh occurred in the American war <f independence, or the Revolution, and are taken mora particularly from that page of our history whloh recounts the facts oonnecttd with the battle of Brooklyn. when 8,ubO American patriots were killed or taken prisoneis. It alludes also to the retreat of Washington to New York, and depiots some of the suffningsof the unhappy prisoners on board the acoursedly famous prison ship Jersey, lu this olay, Mr. Lestas has nnt AtnistBYiirnd tn iiiaIim naniful mi ft. <if urn tin iv. der explosions, popular tableaux, or the tremendous hurrahs of victorious supernumeraries; ha has aot appealed to the prejudices, aud by exaggerating f?0t, made truth subaervient to mawkish sentimentality j but, on the oilier hand, he has kept so far wltniu the truth, that he has not shown the whole of tha picture whleh history would bare warranted him in doing; for instance, in the fourth aot, where tha prison ship scene occurs, he has tailed to oonrey to the eye of the audience anything of the horrors which we know but too well prevailed there. It is true, the author makes one of his comio characters tell, in a quaint aud luughable way, what be saw below decks one night; but it must be acknowledged that a dUinterc-ted spectator would ha.diy gsther from that soene any idea that ths Jersey was worse or better than any bulk used in times of war by any warlike nation; and so all through the pli-oe. extravagance is happily avoid d; and, at the presi nt day. it is no small praise to ty that an author has steered clear of this rook, wbtoh seems to lie in the path of the majority of dramatists. But the rnirrer Is being held up to lite, rtic groupof incidents ought not to be so far in the baok-ground, that only the prominent objects are apparent. It woaid seem from the drat viewing ef this play, that Mr. L has oho-ien an excellent topto?that he baa framed a oapitai plot; but the incidents want to be somewhat elaborated, and a few prominent points given to it. The tcry spy, Ha rd, and the Indian girl, Msnbatta. are very well wrought, but they are seoond and third raie characters in point n f imr nrf.uriPH i? t.h? niunt) Th? mil f.fifiP hra ahnurn in the course of the pay, instances where the laws of humanity have prevailed in the breasts of ths king's otlioers, over the tyrannical ordsrs of brutalloomuianders: but in one instance thls'ls tamely done, and in another it is owing to the energy of the actor himself that the same fault may not be found with the tardy developement of this sense of justioe. There are but

two oomio characters introduced, and they barely serve to enliven two or three scenes. And yet, while all these things are true of the whole pleoe, there is not one obaiaoter in the whole play but that, viewed separately, is a good one. Nathaniel Woodbull, a Genera! in ths patriotio army, as enacted by Mr. Mathews, was well received, and it deserved so to be. The same may be said of Kate Woodhuil, by Mrs. Abbott: Uelanoey, a major of dragoenslntbe British army, as enacted by Uyott; Colonel Burr, aid-de-camp to Washington, by Sbaw ; Nathan Prentiss|a Yankee oaptain of militia, by Hadaway ; Paulus Vandergriet. by Vaohe; Frank Woedhull, by Miss Hose Telbiu ; the maniac scholar, once aid to General Warren at Banker Hill, played by Moorhou?e ; and not least among them ail. Baird, the tory spy, by Pope. These, and, in fact, other parts in the pieoe, were well written, and, if the play were dlsaeoted, eaoh would look well by Itself; but the combination of inoldents is not calculated to causa agreeable surprise, or to enchain the attention. We would not that any resort should be made to loud invective, even though it might be in a patriotio strain, nor would we have mountebank drolleries inlriduoad too thick, and far lees a huge burning of blue and red lights, wlib UriDg of musketry to match, all to produce a sensation. All those are very property left out by the author cf ' Kate Wendbull but while the tinsel and gewgaw show of the </uasi drama is left oil. we have not the pure gold and real gnins of agreeable incidents to staud in their proper place We have no doubt that Mr. Lester will yet retouch his play, lor it is really desirable that so excellent a groundwork as he has built should have a pnperstruoture not only durable but attractive. The piece is introduced by a prologue of merit, written by Mr. Tuel. and apoken by Miss Fauny Wa lack Tiie prologue, while It contains sentiments sufficiently patrlollo, is still so written that it oan offend no one, be his political creed or h s national prejudices what Lhev ni.LV I.. .a ~r .a- -I J " -/ ?= -?.i?
