Rttnntajr, lUroh 17, IMS, The New Administration?Premonitory By rnptomi. The premonitory symptoms of the Presidency of General Teylor, are beginning to develope themselves. Things thus far look well. Some lew scattering appointments, to fill vacancies, have been mad* by the President and his cabinet; but no general sweep seems to be encouraged in that quarter at all. The Preaideat seems determined 4o carry out, as far as possible, the pledges which he made before his election, and which he renewed so boldly and honestly in his inaugural address. Pot this city, it was announced, yesterday, that Zttbedee King had been nominated to the Senate for the office of Surveyor ot this port. This nomination has given oflence, we understand, to some small cliques here; but we are perfectly satisfied it will be approved of by the great body of the people, and particularly by those who brought forwaid and supported General Taylor for the indcp* nd?nt and noble qualities which they expected he would bring into power with him. Mr. Ring's j* a good appointment, and will give satisfaction to all concerned. He is " a whig, but not an ultra whig"?a moderate, fair, discreet man ; and will perform the duties oi hi* office with perfect honesty and impartiality. He comes up to the rule laid down by the President for the making of appointments. This appointment is the first indication of the President's taste in making his selecMens tor this city, and thus far it is quite satisfactory . The rabid office beggars are displeased; but the amount of their displeasure is nothing,compared with the satisfaction of the great bulk of the community. Similar nominations?but not many, as yet? have been made by the administration to fill vacancies in other portions of the country. We see it stated, even, that a democratic Postmaster in .Richmond, and also another of the same politica pinions, elsewhere in Virginia, have been reappointed lo the offices they before filled?their for mer cororr issions having expired. Some little eN fervetcence among the office beggars in Virginia haa been created on account of these appoint menta ; but the strong hold which the independent character and good sense of General Taylor has upon the people of Virginia, aud of the whole countiy, will be the safety aud salvation ot the ad ministration, if it persist in iollowing out the ca H er thus tar irdicattd during the first month of ,tsrxi*t< nee. We hud in a cotemporary, another similar premoniloi> symptom, which also -speaks lor itself, and that of a very favorable character. It is as follows:? fine of the good storisi of tba day, and ana moat creditable to tba Pre*ident and aamlnietration, i*eon nrotrd ?i>b tba application for the restoration of two nildabi) men dismissed hy Mr roik for being engaged in a dual. l'b?- Secretary of tba .Navy, in oastnat nesting tbii morning, informed the President that ha bad lead tbe petition and considered that tba mtdeblpmen ought mat to be restored So thought the cabinet "I am very glad of it," raid the President, "for it the w) nit c.bmei had tboogbt otherwise. 1 would not have ecnaen'ed to re-appolut thaaa gentleman. I hale duels I hate fighting, I bate wars, and will have no due'ilj g men about me, If 1 oan be p it All tins looks very well, and is very encouragirg in regard to the purposes of the new administration under the Pieeidency of otir new chief tnagibt Lie. But while the people at large, and those who desired to see an elevated, honorable, and pure government at Wellington, are delighted null rvii h things, we yet liod symptoms of opposition in certain quarter*, which spring up more from the < (lice-begging mama than irom the generous dene to n e tiir able and impartial administration ot General Taylor. We hud in our cotem( oraty, ihe Lcurxtr Q- Enquirer, the following I nragteph:? Great efforts are making ta rennrs the ra-nomination ot ih- Nery .Agent at N??

We congratulate ourcotempo rary tip<>n the company we may soon find hiin in, if he doe# not trim hie sails in a different hape to what he has already given some indications of doing. rim I rsciaior*.?

The whig wire pullers are the first 1 in inoiion, this yesr, in regard to nominations; 1 but in adjusting the wires and fixing the ropes, the I democrats have, as usual, taken the precedence, f In this respect--that is in preparing their stomachs I and smacking their lips, in anticipation of receiving I a proportion of the immense sums which are annu- ' ally levied upon our patient and long Buffering 1 citizens, without their getting any return, save 1 dirty streets and every thing else that ia bad aud hbonanable, to Bay nothing ol canvaas-back ducks, done rare, and regaltaa in the supper room?the whigs have taken the atart ot their opponents; but in laying plana cunninvly and judicioualy, ao aa to follow the advice of Mra. Glass, aud catch their fiah before they cook it, the democrata, aa they call themselves, (but preaerve ua Iroin auch democracy !) ere adopting their usual tactics, aad will pethups b?at their opponents in the race attar the spoils. We shall see, however, and report the. progreaa of the two parties. It has been intimated, in several quarters, that the fbinous mileage member, the genius who has figured ao extensively, within the last few months, aa ihe member wbo took "them booka," and whs wished to hornly the people of the United States against tbe present mileage system, by showing ' iliam li/iUf hn lm>lr nourlai faro kiiMi^vo<I am I mileage between this city and Washington, while 1 his actual expenses did not exceed twenty?this * Bondescript, who,while advocating squat h, bran 1 bread and farina as the best articles ot diet, would ' discus* a beet"teak or a mutton chop with excellent j gusto?this specimen of the gewus h-mo, with a boot on one loot, and a shoe on the other, to make himself that is, in attracting notice? this "plain Horace Greeley," it has b en inti* n a ted, will be taken iu hand by the whigs, and run aa their candidate tor the Mayoralty at the approaching charter election. Now we do not know, in view of what we have heretolore said on the subject of the next charter election, why "plain Horace Greeley" would not make the beat Mayor that we have ever had in this unfortunate and much to be pitied city Our annual taxes are enormous: they would certainly be heavier under his administration. Our streets, as eur citizens will no doubt admit, are somewhat dirty : they will be dirtier it he be elected. The system ol contract-giving at present in existence, is corrupt : it will be more corrupt if he be elected. Our city treasury has a very big leak in it: it will be bigger ii "plain Horace Greeley" be our nextMayor. t In tine, look at the municipal government in all its t ramifications, and the conclusion is irresistible, that if "plain Horace Greeley" be put forth, nomij i ..t--... J .1? -?. M 1 .1 imicu) ouu cicvir? as uir nrAi cviayur ui iuih grctti 4 metropolis, the tuxes will be just as high as we want them to be (say five millions per annum), tie j streets will be as dirty as we wish to see them, r Sty fit! lest deep Ol mud, instead ot three, as at pieeent, and the whole of the funds collected for * city punioses will be expended without even a show of r? turn. Now, we have given up all idea of obtaining re- , form or economy in our municipal government.? i We have harpea on the subject uuttf we have become tired ot it, and we mean to change our tune. 1 and come out in Bupport of any party or any set ot men, who will make it their study to inquire and I aicertain the exact length and breadth of the patience ot the people, and assess gthem to the utmost limit, pocket the taxes, and give no return. Massa Greeley, or "plain Horace Greelev," is the best man tor this purpose that we can find ; and, ] therefore, we nominate as candidate tor the Mayoralty of the.great commercial city ot New York and its dependencies, "plain Horace Greeley," quash, bran bread and all, with the conlidence hat his coadjutors in tbejegislative branch ot our n city government will be ot the same calibre as himself. Mr Greeley will, when installed (i. e. provided he be elected) succeed, no doubt, in curailing the mileage ol the niembersof the Common Council, by vetoing their omnibus fare. He may > ucceed in stopping their pog, in shortening their allowance ui chuvubs dbcks hdq Amontillado* but ? hey will make it up another way, and swell the taxes to five millions of dollars, to a certainty. Later from the West Indies.?By the arrival 1 of the British mail Bteamship Trent, Capt. Norton, ' we have files of papers from St. Thomas to the 3d inst., and from Bermuda to the iOih.
