Cloning Scene* In Congress, The lust Ht't-sion of the Thirtieth Congress will close at twelve o'clock to-night. Unless there is much more business transacted to-day than we expect, it will be maiked by the future historian as one ot the most unprofitable that has ever been held. It will be looked upon by posterity as a season ot crimination and recrimination by the Northern and Southern States, during which few or none of the substantial interests of the country at large were attended to. It is to be hoped that some charity will be extended to it in after times, tor it will need it. It is expected that the closing scenes of this Congress will be very interesting. We have, therefore, made special arrangements to have them fully depicted to our readers, and they may with confidence look to the columns ot the Herald for a graphic description ol them. Canadian - matters. The conflict between the ultra loyalists and the French, or revolutionary party, in the Canadian Parliament, has ended, and the result is a complete and perfect triumph of the latter ever the former. The bill compensating losses incurred during the attempted rebellion or revolution of 1837, has been pussed by a triumphant majority, notwithstanding the resolutions, meetings, threats, and dura intimations ot repudiation, resist ance, and every thing dee which the loyal or antiTrench party threatened, in Parliament, and out of it, in debate, and ut meetings, in Montreal and elsewhere. Mattel* have now reached a crisis in Canada. The ultra-loyulists? the most loyal nnd aflectionate subjects of Queen Victoria?those who conaider rebellion against ihe Queen aud crown of Great Britain the most infamous, detestable, and abominable crime that could be committed, have been defeated in their Parliament; and il there is any "pluck" is them, they will proceed to carry out their threats. They must call upon their four thousand men, (in buckram,) who attended the meeting at Moutreal en the 17th ult, which day the Montreal Courier said "will be a day ever to he remembered in the annals of Canada, as the day from which the future historian may date the emtiucipution of the Biitish colonies irom the imposition of toieign laws and foreign masters." They must call on the people of British origin, who, the same paper informs us, "roused by the grievous sense of meditated wrong, have risen in their strength, determined that their voice tihall be heard"?tbe men of whom the same paper states, "tour thousand finer, stronger, more eaergetic, or determiued men, never were collected before in one room in that country, and who, with aims in their hands, could sweep the streets of that cuy from one end of it to the other." They must call upon those men (iu buckram) to carry out their threats "with arms in their hands," and prove to the woild, if they are not dastards, that the seventeenth of February, the day on which their celebrated meeting was held, will be " a day from which the future historian may date the emancipation of the British colonies from the imposition of foreign laws and foreign masters." Tbey must do this, or acknowledge before the world that they are not only defeated by their foreign matters, but that they have disgraced themselves in the opinion of the world. It is imperative oa them to do so, from the fact that an amendment to the biU which we have referred to, declaring that none of the Bfdtuy provided for by it should be paid to " any persons in any manner implicated in the rebellion of IS37, or who reiuaed when called upon to aid in suppressing it," was rejected by a strong vote. Now is the 11I11C IWI wit iu;niww iw ..uu.vwv *"v.. ?v; ? ?; ?v their beloved sovereign," and to show their "British origin." But they dare not?they are defeated by their opponents, and they are disgraced by themselves; for they cannot, dare not, attempt either to sweep the streets of Montreal with their "four thousand men with arms in their hands," or repudiate 'he debentures which will foithwitn be issued for he payment of the losses incurred by the French, or revolutionary party, in the revolution of 1.137, even li they hud the power, winch they have not. The resolutions above referred to were passed on the night of the tweuty-second of February nst. Now, in our humble opinion, the twentysecond, instead ol the seventeenth of February, s the day on which, in real earnest, the historian may date the emancipation ut the British colonies from the imposition ol foreign law* nod foreign masters." As we said in y esterduy's paper, this bill contemplated other purpose* besides paying a few thousand pounds to compensate tor losses incurred in the rebellion ol 1K17. It is, in our belief, a measure introduced for the purpose of testing and deciding by vote, the loyalty ol tne people of Canada to "iheir beloved soveieign," and ihe result la ominous as regards Ue luture destiny ot (hat couutiy. Canada, henceforth, will be an interesting portion of the American continent. The seeds ol disloyalty and separation sown a few years since,and watered by the blood of a Von Sholz, a Young, a Mathews, and of other noble patriots, are about to produce a plentiful harvest. The separation from the mother country will soon take place, and the nation "on whose possesions the sun never seta" will lose the choicest of her territories on the American continent. The perpetual roll *f the drum, which her statesmen tauntingly boast of, will be interrupted; and may God send that this, the first broken link, will be succeded by others, until the power of lhat country, so long upheld by th?- bayonets ol ruffianly soldiery, and ihe waihnga and tears of famishing millions, shall be prostrate m the dust. Th? I)*ama ? Mrs Fauny Krmble Butler, who i& announced to deliver a short coarse of Shakspearean Headings,the first of which will uk* pi4,.e this evening at the Sluyvesant Institute, arrived yesterday in the ci:,, wif>ics afartmrn's at lb* Irving Uoom. L TELEGRAPHIC INTELLIGENCE Tcirgrt-plilc Isuuuotry. Our dripttcbri tire <?4 considerable interest; the !*bt ees-iou ol the Thirtieth Congress has but tw i Dty-fcur hourit to run; but even in that tune, we have a glimmering of hope that the amend* nient of Mr. Walker to tit-* appropriation bill, providing for a territorial government for California, and which haa already passed the Senate, will yet receive the aanction of the House, witnout the Wilmot proviso. This opinion is founded upon the rumor that General Taylor has given his countenance to the rteuBure, and requested his friends to udvocate it. In the Senate, yesterday, after the transaction of tome business, of no special im|>ortaace, the bill from the House for refunding duties on goods destroyed by the great fire in New York in 1845, was taken up ; several amendments were offered ; but the bill was finally laid upon the table. At one o'clock, Geo. M Dallas, President of the Senate, in pursuance of previous notice, vacated his sent; Mr. Atchison, of Missouri, was chosen to till the vacancy. A bill making Port Covington, N.Y.,aportof delivery, whs passed. The credrntinla of W (!. I la Whim, as a Senator from fieor gia, were presented ; he fills the seat rendered vai cant by the expiration of the term oi Mr. Johnson. The naval appropriation bill was passed ; and the > l'ost Office appropriation bill was under discission when our despatches closed. 1 In the House, the bill Irjm the Senate for the liquidation of claims ot American citizens against Bgainet Mexico, under the treaty, was taken up, i and alter a long discussion, a substitute offered by Mr. Smiih, (the provisions ot which we are not 1 informed of,) was adopted, and the bill was finally passed. Alter the transaetion of some business ot minor importance, the House, in Committee ol the Whole, went into the consideration of the civil and diplomatic appropriation bill, aB amended by the Senate. Some of the amendments of the Senate were agreed to, and others were d sagreed to. Mr. Wentworth endeavored to attach the Wilniot proviso to the bill, but it was decided by the Chair to be out of order; on an appeal from his decision, it wus sustained by the casting vote of the chairman. The bill, with sundry amendments, was then returned to the Senate. A joint resolution regulating payments to the Congressional printers, was passed. The amendments of the Senate to the bill making appropriations lor fortifications were dlssgreed to. According to the very latest accounts, the cabinet of General Taylor is to consist of the following gentlemen :? Pttre'ary of Statu John M. Cl?yt?n, of Delaware. Secretary ol tho Treasury Wm. M.

Congressional. Washington, Maroh 2,1819. In the House, the Committee of tbs Whole on the General Appropriation Bill, by a majority of seven, rs fused to add the Wllmot proviso to the amendment of the Senate, legislating for territories. Forty Northern member* were absent at the time. Tbs Senate bill was loaded down with amendments, such as striking out boundary, prohibiting the eleve trade coastwise? continuing the laws of Mexloo, abo liehing slavery, In loroe, bo. A substitute for the latter amendment was offered by the Committee of Ways and Means, whiob was rejeoted. The former received twenty three votes in Committee, and the latter seventeen. The Committee then rose, and ths question was taken on the Senate's amendment extending the revenue and Indian lows over the territories, and authorising the President to make rules and regulations, appoint officers, bo., and It was rejected?yeas 100, nays 114.

Old Zack has recommended to his friends to go for the amendment, and this fact gives us hopes ot its success, without the addition of the proviso.

This, we beleve, is the first time that such a treat was ever jffered to the people of this country by a lady. The lovelty of the attraction, apart from any other cir:umetance, would, almost of itself, warrant us in inticipating a crowded house on the occasion. But when we consider the transcendent'genius of the ady who is to give embodiment to the creations >1" the great master of human nature," her ex(uisitely fine natural voice, her captivating grace ts an elocutionist, and the other unrivalled cemlinations of physical and mental endowments she irings to the task, it does not require the gift of raticinatiou to piedict that there will be few empty >enches this evening in the Stuyvesant Institute. There is also another consideration which nust cperate powerfully in causing a tremendous ush to this lady's entertainments. A considerate portion of our citizens, of great intelligence ind lefinement, who, from fixed religious princi" iles arc averse to frequenting theatres, will attend hese readings, as they will b? accompanied by lone of those objectionable features, either as egards the place, the audience, or the performance, vhich constitute their chief argument against heatres. This circumstance, sanctioned as it ias been by that class of people in Boston and Isewhere, will induce numbers of people who, rom the influence of religious feelings, have >een hitherto strangers to the representation of the ;reat dramatic chefs d'auire of Shakspeare, to be ireeent and swell the audiences to a considerible extent. It wou d be little short of an insult to the public, is well as to the distinguished lady herself, to peak of her in terms of eulogy, with a view to Iraw large audiences to her intellectual entertainnents. She is too well known by the public, on ioth fides of the Atlantic, to require any commenlatory remarks fiomus, which wc have no doubt rill be testified this evening by all the intellect, itihion, and thit of our city.

HONEY HABKET. Fililay, March 3-0 P. M. Tha stock market opened heavy this morning, and quotations for most af the stocks in tha list fall off a fraction. Tha operations at the first board were mora limited than wa have noticed for several days past, heading Railroad deollned K per cent; Harlem, X ; Long Island, X ; Morris Canal, S'; Rending Mortgage Bonde advanced 1 par oont; Farmers' Loan, X ; Erie Railroad. X. At the second board thers was mora activity in ths market, and a general improvement in prices Reading Railroad went up % per eent; Farmers' Lean, X ; Long Island, X ; Harlem, I,1; ; and Canton Co X It therefore appears, that the fancies not only reoovered what they lost in the morning, but oloeed at an advance on yesterday's prices. These variations lathe market on the same day, shows that the balls and bears are pretty closely matched; but the balls gain a little every day. The preepeot at present Is decidedly more favorable for the balla then the bears, and the movements about being made to deplete the Sub-treasury will, when consummated, relieve the money market end put a further acoutnulatloncf specie entirely out of the question. Wed# not look upon ths proposition to antlolpate the payment of the Meziqen indemnity, due In Jane, es being caleulated to do much permanent good, as it will compel the Seeretery of the Treasury to eall in the outstanding instalmsnts of the lest loan. It will, therefore, be as broad as it is long, and we mast look to other enures for an improvement of aoy importanoe. The basis cf a mote favorable condition of financial and commercial afftirs In this eoantry is the rose'.ion that has taken place in Europe, particularly In Eugand. The movements of specie to and iron the vaults of ths Treasury department have very little infineaoe upon the movements of commerce; they are made a bugbear cf to frighten timid speculators for a rise, and the evils of the system adopts a by the government for the preservation of ita funds, are magnified teofo a. The demand for aur public lecurlties in Europe baa already had a better effect upon our money market, 'ban the withdrawal of every dollar of apeeia in the possession of the government could hava had. We axe requested by tbe agent of th# State of Il'inoi?, for funding the Internal Improvement bonds, to atate that the law doea not provide for funding any bonde which are not presented on or before the 10th of March Inst. The ./Etna Insuaance Company of Hartford have made another dividend of twenty. Ave dollars per share, making a total dividend, for the last fifteen months, of eighty-five dollars per share.

We annex the report of the Harlem Railroad Company, made to tbe Secretary of the State, in ascordance with a special act of the Legislators, for the year ending December 31,1848.

Tbe report now submitted to the Legislature will be found to olfler materially from tbore presented for several years past, and it may be Judicious to acoompany it with tome explanations Ti.e lia^lem road has been built and greatly improved in many reipeot* under great flaanolal difficulties, and by a ceaetani and steady appropriation of all tba ouirent receipts which could be thus diverted, an by tbe ure of tbe materials, machinery, and even of toe transportation department to the primary objects of extension and completion. But this silent operation, in which tbe dividends of the stockholders and the profits of the oompeny have been absorbed, hat been goiigon without charges upon the cons*ruotion accounts and tbore aooounta have stood for several years unchanged; though, In the meantime, new works and amendments of the line have been carried out te ionpinion Tbe director* have endeavored to adjust there accounts, with as muoh accuracy as Is now ia their power and hava o*used ruob entries te be m?d* in their books as will enable them to make a report which shall exhibit a correct statement of the cost of their enterprise, which, lb their best ju Ig nent, the olroumstanee* wariant and the results will justify 'J he road may properly be divided into two see ions : first, hat eiieudlog from the City Hall, in the elty of New Yrrk, passing through the lower part of the town upon the street grades, to Union Place, and tbenoe along tbe centre of the Fourth avenue on a direct line, without ourvature, to tn# Harlem river ; second, toat from tba south side of tbe Harlem river, through th* fertile counties of Westchester and Putnam, to Dover Plains in Dutehers county.
