The distribution of the spoils having now fairly commenced,each appointment that is mude and announced to the world la scanned, examined, canvassed, turned over aud over and inside out, with a degree ol curiosity, interest and anxiety, infinitely amusing. Yet, notwithstanding all ihe sharpness and closeness w th which every movement of the new administration is thus watched and studied, by friends and foes, we have not observed m any quarter an attempt to subject the events and operations passing before us to the rigid and wholesome test of philosophical analysis and scrutiny. It may not be amiss, then to examine this matter in the light ol tnat plain common sense philosophy which hesveu has bestowed on sinners as freely as tne air they breathe, but whose value is known only to the few who happen to possess intelligence er industry enough to acquire the srt of using it Wt showed in our journal yesterday, how the mystery of the new administration begins to be unfolded ; aad we Bbail again :ry to threw a little more light on the subject. " Who construct! d the cabinet V' " What wera the leading objecis which regulated ths selection of the materials 1" " What indications do its acts, thus far, furnish ol its purposes, plans and policy 1" These are questions which present interesting and profitable subjects ol study. Nor it their solution beyond the mathematical powers of ordinary mortals. If you only open your eyes and follow tne wiudiugs ot the subject, as you would Lsrdner's demonstration ot the steam engine, the mystery is cleared away, and the whole thinir stands as clearlv reveal ed aa the liberty pole on the next corner. It is a great mistake to suppose that the members of the cabinet were all selected ttriuhm by General Taylor himself. Tbe entire construction of the cabinet was the result of skilful, deliberate, and well-matured schemes on the part of certain adroit politicians at Washington, and elsewhere, who used the popularity of the old hero?and not a few of their own unsuspecting bosom fr ends?in order to accomplish their objects. Mr. Crittenden was the first choice of Taylor, as the leading member ol the oabiuet; but certain circumstances impelled that highly honorable aud ulented gentleman to decline; and then, as it quae accidentally, Mr. John M. Clayton was called to that post in the council of the President. In the subsequent appointments, Mr. Clayton, and the influences which Jbe represents, and which he has sk^lully controlled and amalgamated, had a potential voice. Meredith, Crawford, Ewiog, and CoUamer, were not gentlemen with whose character, standing, or capacity, the President had had opportunities of becoming acquainted. Tney were suggested to him, end the wisdom and propriety of selecting them as members of his cabinet were made apparent to him by judiciously conceived arguments. And they are all very excellent men?not particularly strong, however, in their own States, and not surrounded by an absolutely dazzling tame in the eyea ol the country. In truth, here we have the first glimpse into the true nature ol the motives J U!_L 1 _ l .? auu uujrvis which reguiatea tne construction 01 he cabinet. Heretofore it has been the oohcy of new administrations to give to the most prominent and leadng men of the dominant party a poattton in the cabinet; the object be>ng to conciliate powerful cliques and factions. 1 he result has not always been prosperous. Too many rivals were thus gathered about the throne; apd although, undoubtedly, the meetings ot the cabinet were rendered more piquant and lively, yet, on the whole, it was not a oomfortable state of afiaira. In the compo. sition ol the present cabinet a different cours- has been taken. Mr. Clayton is the "boss," and the other respectable, worthy, well-behaved and unassuming secretaries, are the journeymen, who will mind their own business and " make themselves senerallv useful." We think this is a good ar ring' merit. At all event*, the system merit* a fair trial. It promiaea unity and harmony. It may, and p'oiiably will, prevent little bickerings and jealousies, each individual entertaining, it is to be hoped, a becoming sense of his own subordinate position in the construction of the cabinet. The scheme of the cabinet, indeed, resembles, in some Important feature!, that on which G>n. Jackson's administration was arranged under the auspices of the ingenious and adrou little gentleman who etitt amuses himeelt by political speculations in his retreat on the banks ol ihe Hudson. No much, then, with respect to the lending principle of the compos, lion of Gen. Tnyior's cabon i, ami the Vlevation to sents in his council, ot scv-r ,1 gent),., men, of whom it may be said, with p-rieci res.iect, thai compared with oihers who mi {hi poim%J I out in the ranks ol ihe whig pirty, like the in r . tonous youth in "Gray's Ele y," ttiey wee Allks to for'.uts and to fa n? u a IBS St." 'They I.avs been chosen lor thur r^t rmg d spoi si aition and mdnt drwuaor; and wa trait that, repiresing all improper aspirations, they may fairJi- If tally discharge the duties of thier respective do- e< pertinents, yielding themselevs to destiny, and n the goad guidance of a clear conscience and the "boas." " The foundations of the new administration u having been thus laid, the next business was to U mollify the wounded spirits of disappointed Iriend* t| ?pour balm uptm the bruises ol tne uniortuuate? n and build up a strong and manageable adiniuis- e tration party. Happily, the means ol acoomplnhiag II these benevolent purposes wore at hand; aud, we I must say that, so far, these means have been ap v plied with no ordinary judgment and sagacity, b Influential leaders in both houses ot Congress are d giving in their Hdhesiou to the new dynasty with n emarkable cordiality. Patronage exerts ita usual a aorcery. But it is to ths skill of the raagiciuu, U rather than to the poteucy of his spells, that ws f would now direct public attention. In all tne o recant appointments there has been a definite aim n at building up a strong party in Congress. Mr Webster has quite properly been conciliated by the appointment of relatives to very lucrative I offices. This wise man of the east, and others, are wide awake in their generation.? " The silent sow gets the most swill." The Clay connection wtd be subjected to the same agreeable and satisfactory process. 3eaatorj j Badger and Bell, and all other* of that ilk, will be, a if they are not already, entirely justified in giving v o the adminiatration patriotic aud reliable support 11 ju the House, a few tat ollices m "the depart- |, nients," a dozen cadetships at West Point, lucrative places in the custom*, and sundry diplomatic ? appointments, judiciously distributed, will operate v like a charm. Within the last twenty years a t| great many dependents have grown up around c your great whig party leaders, who must be pro. vided for handsomely. Little urchins in roundabouts have sprouted up into bearded young men, who are shockingly exjieosive. Daughters have ( married, and nephews and nieces have coine into D existence. If lh? big hah caunot all be provided p with bait, the small ones can each have a nibble. r< And in thia very way will Congress b? fully secured- 11 We rather admire this line of policy. It is sa- p gaciovs, and discovers a thorough knowledge of a the springs which regulute the legislative ma- '' chinery. n Its L.l_ al * 1 rr* 1 .L . I 2! ivieauwmie, me original tayior men?me real Simon Pures?look blue and grumble. They lor. ^ get, that with all new administrations the great c question that regulates the lute ot a beggar is, not t what he is, or what he huu done; but what he c has, and what he can do. Political patronage is o like so much cash on hand. It is not to be thrown i? away to gratily a feeling of gratitude ; but is to be * judiciously expended and invested so as to secure J,( the largest possible return. At present, the administration are making investments in Congress tl stock. The outsiders, from Colonel Webb to ** Mm tin Kenabaii, must, theiefore, possess their bi souls in patience, and, silently sucking their thumbs, wait tor the future. * That General Taylor is cognizant of all the movements behind uie curtain, we. of course, do ^ uot suppose. Trie very virtues of the man?his * high sense ot honor?his conscientious conviction ? of the solemn responsibilities of his position?his sterling mtegtity, oiler just so many inducements ? to designing men to make him unconsciously an t auxuiaty in the accomplishment of their schemed. t liis popularity will be teliedupoato secure ami re- t nun the support of the masses, while Congress and * the cln.ues will be managed 111 the inaniier we t have juet described. The offices in the gift * of the Executive will be carefully and cautiously c. distributed amongst influential families and '' political connections, and all efforts will be made p to effect such a combination as will retain political patronage and power ut the hands of the architects Jj who have thus far proceeded so skilfully. A 11 liberal and conciliatory policy will he pursued on K all the great questions of the day ; and if there he p1 any who imagine that ultra whig priucipies will be ? entertained and puBhed by this administration, S they will find themselves greatly mistaken. ^ On the whole, we are inclined to approve the b | conduct of the administration. The view which * we have given ot us construction, and of itspulicy o with regatd to appointments to office, is tntelligi- * ble, and will enable the reader to form an accurate ? judgment of its course and couduct. We give, in tact, a key by which the whole machinery may be unlocked and inapected at leisure. In conclusion, t we have only to reiterate the expression of our * confidence in the President, and to remind his J cabinet that, after all, they are entirely subject to ti his control. Let him not be imposed on by artful exaggerations of the difficulties of his novel pnai- * lion. His own sterlisg good sense and incorrupt- o ible integrity are his best advisers and counsellors, jj Let bim always follow the dictates ot his own n eound head and patriotic heart, and recollect that " he can make and unmake cabiueia as may best euit the advancement ot his own vie wsand the best interests of the country. It will be well, also, for ? I the cabinet to bear in mind, that howevershrewdly b they may secure strength in Congress, and how* 0 ever judiciously tbey may pension the relatives D and dependents of party leaders, they must, after all, succeed, mainly, by earning the suffrages J ot the great masses of the people, who cannot be n k.,....kl ik- onnrnk.llnn nl .

We knew, at the time, that lha ' r< Consul's lees were not more than were allowed , ? by law, and that Mr Huchatian, the Secretary of a State, and one of the Judg?s o' the Supreme Court ? | of the United States, were consulted on the subject, and justified Mr. Walsh in what he had done. b We insert the cuimninication, however, and it ? will be found in to-day's Herald, P Morb 8i.ibvboa.mom Nbwb.?The TrxbwM and " other newspspera are publishing, with great ? flourish ot trumpets, letters, and extracts of letters, purjairting to convey highly exciting and interastIng intelligence from the gold diggings of Cahfor- J' ma. of a late date.

In Wahhihoton, Marob 19 -10 P. M. T The Hon. Mr. Benton made, in secret session to day, tt his threatened attack on the late administration. This iu assault was made on the protoool accompanying the re treaty, and his speeoh occupied the whole day. Ha It will not close his argument, probably, for two days. 01 He promises to be able to prove that the protoool tt preceded the ratification of tne treaty by the Maclean ei Congress, and was not subsequent to it, as appeared by ot Mr Polk in his message. He gives two reasons for his l? present course: first, because the dignity of the Senate re should be asserted; and. eeooodly, that we ewe it to the tr credit of the country to treat a weaker nation, like ai Mezioo, with magnanimity. He maintains that ths te treaty would never have been ratified by Mezioo. with to the protoool and that the signing of the instrument at wee a monstrous assumption of power on the part of the commissioners. He also agreed that the Drotoco1 ia In direot contravention of the treaty, and vitiates 0c those portions of it to whleh It refers He charges Mr th Polk and hla administration with direct falsehood mi The whig Senators will, it is believed, remain passive all 'n the affair; bat the democratic Senators are boiling ei with indignation They declare that Mr Benton is fu making this protocol a bridge to carry him over the sh stream that divides the two parties, and that the Orst ad 'netalment of the prloe of his adhesion to the wnige was the appointment of his son-ln law Mr. Jones gr They denounce it as monstrous perfidy and baseness in to rail up those charges after the administration has hi been scattered to all parts of the Union, and when Its members are no longer In a position officially to rebut th the obarge. th Mr. Benton will.
