Taylor, in hie high capacity as President of the United States, have created a singular sensation among all claasee of this community. The promulgation of his cabinet, as far as it is known with accuracy, took every one by surprise. His inaugural address, so brief, so modest, so classical, and so comprehensive, lias increased the wonder in every quarter; and the master spirits of the two old parties are going about inquiring of each other, " What does ail this mean 1 who have we got now in the White House 1 what is to be the policy of the new President? will he remove or retain the old oflice holders ? is he lor a high or low tariff 1 what will his general policy be V' These questions are answered in various ways, according tp the hopeq and anticipations ct the inquirers and listeners in every cottrie around town. One thing, however, is certain; a new era in the republic is ubout opening?all the modes of speech and action which have been considered right and proper for the last twenty or thirty years, by both of the old partieB, have been swept from the " slate" of the White House, Tubbed off'with a sponge, and we are ubout to begin a new age of government, with fresher principles, more enlightened purposes, and liighet notions of morality, than any that have prevailed in Washington lor years and years past. The opinions expressed ol the inaugural, by the New York press, are equally quite amusing and interesting. The principal whig journals are in ecstacies with it, and some ol them even cannot refrain from saying silly things in the exuberance of their joy. The democratic journals, on the other band, seem to labor under as much difficulty to find fault with it, as the whig newspapers do to elaborate its praise. Now, the absence of all party feeling in that classical paper, and tiie comprehensiveness of its general views, are decidedly its best characteristics, and will oc so considered by those who understand the character of the new President, and the purposes with which he goes into the White House. No social party policy, on any particular subject, is indicated in the address. The words are chaste, large in meaning, courteous in phrase, and patriotic to the fullest extent. We must look for the practical intentions of the new President, in the conduct which he has exhibited since his arrival at Washington ; and if we look into that matter, we shall find that Gen. Taylor, as President of the United States, is more a man of decided, prompt, and discreet conduct, than a person who uses language as a lawyer does, or who multiplies words like one of those politicians who can talk for hall a day, or write a whole newspaper, without communicating a single distinct idea. The general views put forth in the inaugural corresj>ond, to a reruatkable extent, with the sentiments contained in the letters written by General Taylor previous to the election. He means to be Piesident ol the whole country, and not of a party, lie has, to be sure, select* d his cubmet advisers from the whig paity; but these selections have been made ol moderate men, apparently unaspiring politicians, and not by any means at the dictation of clique*, from any part of the country. The attempt of th? Pennsylvania delegation to dictate a nortion of the cabinet, met witn the same fats which the tflort of a millionaire of Boston in the ?unc direction received. The Pennsylvania clique remonstrated against the apj>ointment of Mr Mereditli, but tbey were dismissed .in the most cordial and gentlemanly style. Mr. Lawrence, the Boston millionaire, wanted to select his own place in the cabinet ; hut both those classes ot politicians discovered that the President meant to Belect his own eabiuet, and not allow politicians to select or frame it for him. These indications of firmness, good sense, and voolueis, on the part of the President, augur well for h'u course ol policy during lua term of office. Buck conduct is a fit commentary on the principles put forth in bis letters before the election, und m his address on the day ot his inauguration. The policy of the new President is therefore beginning to disclose itself. The country is at peace with all the woild, and will remain so for at least four years ta come. The republic is prosperous to an extraordinary degree; and every <nergy of the new administration, under the presiding genius of the White House, will be dieoted to give an imiwtus to progress of a peeceful and industrious kind, affecting agriculture, commerce and manufactures equally with every other interest. The laws on the finances,on the tariff, and all other great national interests, as they have existed for the last few years, and as they were shaped by the late administration, will remain ?s they are until the meeting aftiie next Congress, am then, there is every reason to believe that do violent or radical changes will be made in them, b*t that such practical modifications may be recommended as time and experience may dictate. For four yeare to come, at leust, no annexation scheme will t>e indulged in by the government. Our recent acquisitions, brilliant as they are, will be improved, consolidated, and rendered fit for the habitation of an industrious and energetic population. It is true that no territorial government was established by the late Congress for either New Mexico or California; but the revenue laws, as a pit ulln, having been extended to California, the President will no doubt establish in ihat distant and valuable region such a provisional government as may suit |he emergencies of the case, until tlie new Congress, at the regular time, can legislate on the subject. Genera! Smuh is now there, and withthe emigrants going thither from this country, nu<nbenog nesily thirty thousand, who will be in California next sumnu r, we have no doubt, under the ?usp.eee of General Taylor, a provisional govern far all purposes, of preserving erder and doing ji *tce in that distant country. , Thus we stand, in a brilliant and hopeful po tion, on the threshold of tne new administratif We have the beat evidence, in tfte experience oft last week, for believing that Gen Taylor hims ' will be ita master spirit. It the cabinet, or a ' portion of it, should endeavor, by atealth or trigue, to swerve from tho chart laid down them by the letters and address ot the Preaide the same firm-minded man wljo bowed the Pel sylvania delegation cut of his room, and the n lionaire ef Boston back to Massachusetts, will easily re-construct a refractory cabinet, as he lias i justed greater d.fficultieaon former occasions. 1 country, without reference to party, has coufidei in the integrity, the honesty, the morality, i firmness, and Btern patriotism of the new Pre dent. They are pleased with hia first 6tepi; th confidence is increased, and we have hope tl they will support hint through his whole career. A Glance at the Thirtieth Suasion of C< oress ?Jf the performances of public men b< anv nrODOItion to their nmmiK^ or tvere ?? :?n . sweruble to the confidence reposed in them, wl an amount of disappointment would be avert* i anil what immense benefits would accrue, not 01 to the community they represent, but to the wo at large ! The experience of mankind, howev in all ages and among all nations, bears melaucl Ijr evidence of what little reliance should be plac in the professions of public men. Micky Fi displayed an intimate acquaintance with the 1 man heart, and the prudence of checking too si gume anticipation by one of his ever meatoral beatitudes, which, though not enumerated amo "the eight," is not the less true :?" Blessed i they who expect little, for they will not be disi pointed." The thirtieth session of Congress has termin ed, and, according to our despatches, the closi moments of Congress, in both houseB, were ignominious as the career of the whole sessi was disgraceful. Wlmt has the thirtieth session of Congress don What measure of public utility has resulted fr< their labors? When they commenced their dt berations, three months ago, the public laboi under the delusion that some, at least, of tht questions which were so imperatively required the national interests, wo ild receive at their har tne consideration to which they were entitled, that time we had ample confirmation of the i mense wealth of one of our newly acquired pi sessions, ilumor with its thousand tongues ti roused the cunosiiy of every one throughout t whole extent of the Union. Kxpeditions to this la of promise were projected on all sides, and tens thousands of our population are now on the way to that remote region. It might naturally I expected, therefore, that in a matter so urgetl' demanding legislation as the government of ti new territory, where no law or executive pow existed, and where all the bud passions of hum nature were roused into fearful activity under t influence of the most powerful incentives kaoi in the history of mankind, thn the legislature this country would have adopted some measure give them even a provisional government, so ti lite and properly might De protected, and the suf of our fellow-eitizens secured. This, too, w only one of the many questions of vital iinportun which demanded legislative actio* But how w? they treated by the last Congress 1 The first f? wetks were spent doing nothing; the next fc were frittered away in paltry squabbling abc mileage; and the last four were devoted to pal manu'tivnng and sectional animosities on t slavery question. This is a brief summary of the labors of the se sion. And what have been the fruits '! There no regular territorial goveinmeiit for California there is no settlement of the slavery question there is no settlement of the mileage squabbles there iB no railroad to uilord easy access to o new possessions?there is no mint for New Yo ?in short, all those measures we were protnis at the beginning of the session, have been lett pi cisely as they were, without any legislative acti whatever. What course the new administration may ad< in such a state of things, it is difficult to say Every means, however, has been taken to for upou the new President the necessity of calling extra session of Congress. What measures may adopt to meet the difficulties which have be bequeathed to him, it would be premature now discuss; but it is of consequence to make the pu lie aware ot the origin of these difficulties, and the quarter to which thair responsibility is to attached. It would be an injustice, however, to the adn nistrution whose career hasjust terminated, not state that, however inglorious has been the closii act of their official lile, this country never, at ai former period of our history since the days of tl immortal Washington, uttaiued u noaiiiun who redounds so much to our honor, our happinea uml our glory, both at home and abroad, as durit the period Mr. Polk occupied the White House. Important Notice to Office Holders and U fioe Seekers.?The clause in the inaugural a dress, huving reference to the qualifications men, either .holding or seeking public office, very important to be studied by both of tho clashes of patriots about these days. Honeaty, < picity, fidelity, are the indisjx-neabie pre-requtsih either for office-holders or office-seekers. The now in office, who cannot give perfect eertificai of those qualifications, may be certain of remov and those who are applying tor office, mustgi credentials of a similar character, before they c< succeed. On this principle, we believe, the C( lector, and a number of officers in the Custo House nnd Post Office, of New York, will be r tained for some time yet, and in iny of those wl are applying under the new dynasty, will wear o their beet pair of breeches before they attain the objects.

Weac my cordingly published, on Sunday morning, in our ia- regular edition, and thoughnut the day in extras, tor upwards of four columns of telegnphio matter, ut, which we laid betore the public at the regular cost HQ- ot the psper, and for which we did not receive in lil- return more than twenty per cent of the cost which as we were put to in obtaining it. We do not comid plain of this; for we never calculated on making 'lie profit by the sale of extras; we issue them with ice the sole view ot placing betore our readers and the the public generally, important news, which we strive si- to obtuiu in advance- and as the public are aware. eir with i>rt tty good success. What we do complain hat of is, the cotemptible petty conduct of some of cur contemporaries, who, knowing the expense we incur in procuring news exclusively, habiiaally toke it front our columns and insert it in 'bflr own, as if it were their private property, J ' without giving a particle of credit to the Herald -d' fvT ' Thus, the a ccounta of the closing scenes and proJ * ceedings of Congress, which were transmitted to r us exclusively by our own correspondents at Wash^r' ington, and which, as we before remarked, cost 10~ us a large sunt of money, was copied verbatim et 1 hterutim (typographical errors made m the hurry ree of setting up, and all) into several of the New 1U York papers of yesterday, without crediting the "J source from which they extracted it, but in a way that would lead the public to believe that they procured it themselves, which was not the case; ire thereby striving to make capital from our enteri'>* prise and our expenditures. Thus, the Exprest, which is, without exception, the most soulless and at" conscienceless journal to he found in the thirty btates of the American confederacy?or even in a< the new territories of New Mexico and California, on so long under the domination ol Mexico?extruct? ed these Congressional proceedings, and headed e " them "By Telegraph; correspondence of the Exi jreet;" thereby striving to convince the public that ' l" thutncketty concern procured them at its own exe pense. Nothing con be meaner or more contempts ,ae hie than this; and we hope the public will not forget ^ it. The iSuw, Morning Star, uud one or two 1 " other small fry journale, did the same; and we are At sorry to say that the Journal of Commerce, a jourai" nal from which we would exja-ct better things, did )S" likewise. It did not, however, so thoroughly disU(1 grace itself as the Expnts did, by putting it forth "* as its own telegraphic correspondence. " . Now, stealing an umbrella, or forgetting to re' ' turn a book, may be justifiable under a peculiar ir state of circumstances; for we believe it is conceded that individual property does not exist in v either; but there is no palliation, no excuse, to be 11,1 offered in defence of a journal which would extract tr from the columns of a cotempora y important 10 news, obtained at a great outlay ot money and e labor, " appropriate" it, aud pass it to the public as its own lawful property. It will be, at the same ? time, borne in mind that those journals which t0 thus plagiarize or appropriate (not to use a stronger 1111 and justifiable term) the reports of the Herald, arid ,v meanly attempt to pass them off as their own, are 'ia in the constant habit of denying the accuracy ?f ILS our reports, (more in a spirit of malevolence and *re envy, however, than anything else, for they cannot ,ur comj>ete with them,) and stating to the world that ur they are not worthy of belief; and yet they will ,ut extract them in the manner above referred to, and ty publish them as their own. The Cr/uner and Enquirtrtind the 7W6i*u? were the only payers that acted manfully and honeBtly s" on this occasion. ? Gen. Shields and Sknatoh. Breesk.?Since the operatic fracu? between Benedetti and Fry, and ? Forest's famous "card" to Macready, there has ur been no public event ot a bellicose character, on rk this side of the Atlantic, to equal the extraordinary ed correspondence we have published of Gen. Shields re- and Judge Breese. Indeed, we might safely exen tend the contrast to a wider sphere and a more remote period, and challenge any civilized country >pt in the world, or any age, however hoary ? in antiquity, to produce a parallel to the atrabilious ce ebullition of the gallant General. It stands, we an believe, fucilt jnniutps, and unless we revert to' a he state of savagery and barbarism, will retain this en unenviable pre-eminence for all time. to If we lived in a country where an objectionable ib- form of government was established, and where of even bud laws were in force for the redress of the be public and private wrongs to which individuals might be subjected, there would be scarcely any 11- justification for the threats of an assassm, or for a to resort to the bowic knife or the revolver. But in a ug cauntiy like this, where the government is mouldiy ed in accordance with the wishes of the people, le and where the legislatures, ths executive, and the ;h laws, are the free emanation of the will of the inaa, jonty, nothing can palliate or excuse the lawless ig and ssnguinary menaces of Gen. Shields. The petty and insignificant complaints, also, which have excited such an outpouring of the gall of the j" gallant General?and which, if there be any reliance placed in the ferocious intimation he gives Senator Breese, must eventuate in the inevitable assassi1,1 nation ot the latter?deprive the former of the only pretext which his warmest friends couid offer for his atrocious conduct. Had the crime ot the Senator been of that deep dye for which human laws 8e give neither solace nor atonement, there would be '4 no justification, though thste might be somepallia4 ' tion for such horrible revenge as that threatened ve by the gnllant General. But what conclusion can 1111 any dispassionate judgment come to, when, a j * * cording to the showing of Gen. Shields himself, m . . - ~ ? nis BOie complaints were mat scnaier lireese dep" timed to attend a complimentary dinner given to 10 him; that he had stated Gen. Shields was lneligiut ble to the office of Senator, and that he did not lr give him a certificate ofnaturalixHtion unsolicited? This ia the sum total of thecasiM belli, as far as we et can gather from Gen. Shields' letter. We are sorry, on account of the well-won repu16 tation of General Shields in Mexico, that he lias cr allowed Ins laurels to be tarnished by such unwarer rentable and disgraceful conduct. But the character of our country is too dear to us, the rep.itar tion of our public men, at home and abroad, is of a* 'oo great moment in our eyes, to permit as flagrant a violation of all public and private propriety to ot pass without the strongest possible expression of 10 our censure and indignation. Such, indeed, is the Iy feeling of the whole community, who are lost m astonishment and regret that the ga'lant warrior ^ who so recently distinguished himself in his conna try'a service, should so far forget his own selfrespect, his lesja-ct for the laws of his couutry, as if well as his own proud position in public estima?? tion, as to descend to the language of n " rowdy" fa and the threats of an assassin. We know not what course the honorable body d. to which General Shields has been recently elcnt? ed may take with regard to this matter, or lie whether they will not ce it at all; but we are of til opinion that it is incumbent on them, if they wish "jj. to retain the respect of the coinmiinity whom they _ represent, or the good opinion of foreign nations, to take the earliest opportuaity to express their Hcniinifuta on such unprecedented and scandalous [JJ w nducl on the part of one of their members. ve rs. 8piJtNnti> Swords.?The swords voted bv Cono uri se io Major General* Butler, Twiggs, (Quitman, in Worth, Hei.dersou, end the heirs of the late Gen. ! , HaBier, have been prepared ; and, on K iday.

Summary, We give below the cabinet of the new administration, an it has been re-organize J and ratified by the United States Senute. It will be perceived tout Mr. Kwing has left the seat offered, and been appointed Secretary of the ilorne 1) ptrtment, and Mr. Jacob Collamer, a member of Congress fiom Vermont, has been appointed Postmaster General. The cabinet, as it now stands, is stronger t' it has been yet. It will probably be less proscriptive. Mr. Kwing in the Home Department, to which he has been appointed, will merely hare to put men into office and not remove any. Mr. Collamer is an able, practical, and talented business man. Under his auspices, we are satisfied his depaitment of the government will undergo the r"form so long needed and prayed for by the community. On the whole, the country has the best reason to be pleased with the cab'net. The Organization of tue Cabinet ?Meeting of the Senate. Wa?ii int.tou, March 8,1849.

Old 7.aok, Colonel Taylor (his brother,) and Colonel fiH-s and ludy attended both balls. In the Senate, after tbo debate on Walker's resolution for an Inquiry into tba eligibility of General Shields, it was generally conceded that the member with the regular credentials of election must first be admitted, ond then, If required, his eligibility examined. General Shields was aooordingly sworn In, when, on motion of Mr. Butlrr, u aeleot committee of five was ordered to Inquire into 1 is eligibility.
