The steamship Canada is now in her twelil day, and bernews may be expected over the win at every moment. The President and the Gablnat?-Tranb about the Nominations, A. geod deal of sensation has been produced t the public mind, by the information that the Sena had rejected Mr. McGaughey as Governor of N nesota. This was probably one of the most lmp< tant nominations that haB been made by t President since he sent in his cabinet to the Sent for confirmation, and the rejection came with si prise on the country, and left an intense desire know the causes which induced the Senate to t as they have done, in refusing to confirm it. Sin the vote of the Senate was disclosed, the Washio ton correspondents of all parties have given th< versions of the affair, which are more or less exa gerated, and more or less correct in the details the matter. Our correspondents have alluded the rejection on several occasions, and one them, in to-day'b paper, goes into somewhat of minute statement of the causes which led to tl nomination, as well aa those of its rejection by tl Senate. It appears that the nomination of Mr. McGaug ey, aa we have heretoiore surmised, originat with Mr. Ewing, who is at the head of the Hoi department. Mr. E wing's career, as apoliticu is well known to the country; he was a member the cabinet under General Harrison, but was c of the first to secede from it and explode it after f death of General Harrison, and on the aecessi of John Tyler. Mr. Ewing is a man otconsideral talent, but we believe he in an ultra whig in fe Ing, purposes, and views. We are also inform that he has lately procured appointments for hie bi ther-in-law, his father-in-law, his son, and perha other connections, during the brief career of tl present administration. It is also believed that I is disposed to indulge in a general clearance of t office holders under his control, whatever may I their qualifications, their principles, or their gen rnl character. If these statements be correct?and we ha\ ihem from good authority?Mr. Ewmg certain goes a little beyond the programme of the adm nistration, which we were led to expect, by tl etters of General Taylor be lore the election, ai by his inaugural address since his accession power. The appointment and confirmation of crowd of nominees?members of his own family becomes a delicate matter for the Senate even proceed on; but the nomination of such a man Mr. McGaughey ta represented, on all hands, to t with his late career in the House with reteren to the Mexican war, was certainly trespassing, a considerable degree, on the quo ammo of tl administration, which we were led to expect fro General Taylor. His rejection, according to tl best accounts, seems to have been justified on tl part of the Senate, and we have no doubt that will be concurred in by the President himsei when all the facts of the case shall have been co rectly represented to him. Mr. McGaughey conduct in Congress, on the Mexican war, wi unpatriotic, anti-American, anti-national, and dii creditable, in the highest degree. We are satii fied that the President never, of his own volitio and knowledge of the man, would have sent in h nomination to the Senate for confirmation; an we are equally satisfied that the cabinet cotnmi ted a gnat error in recommending a man whoi nomination compelled so grave and dignified body as the Senate to act as it has done, on tl very threshold of the new administration, and rebuke the President in the discharge of an ir iinrtnnf rlnfv What ia past, however, can't be recalled; bi it may lead to greater care, and more regard fo propriety, on the part of the President'! ad risen for the future. It ia true that General Taylor, bein the President of the United States, and the hea of the administration, ia, in the ordinary sense < the term, responsible to the American people fc all the nominations, acts and measures, that h may recommend; but it is no lesa true, that whil he occupies that legal position, the whole of th moral responsibility of the administration will fa visited on Mr. Clayton and his colleagues in tfa cabinet, whoever they may be. General Taylt was called to the high place which he now fill from a conviction, on the part of the America people, of hia high moral character, hia uncoi querable patriotism, hia purity of pur|>ose, and h genuine American feelings. He is not, and coul not, from his previous life, be acquainted with th details of office, the peculiarity of personal oharai tcr, or all those small matters which are so abs< luu ly necessary to be known in the performanc of the most ordinary public duties. To assist hii in this branch ol hi* administration, he calls to h aid a cabinet ol public men, eminent atatesmei well acquainted with the details of public affaii and with the capacity and character of candidate lor the offices to whieh they may aspire. If ba ui mm*.u na and improper appointments be mad under such advisers, the moral responsibility rest with them; and it ao, the President woul< Le justified, in the event of any gross df lusion being practised on him, to dismis the individual troni his cabinet at a mo mem o warning, who had acted in that man ner ; and in this prompt and equitable course o actisn, the American people would support Gen Taj ler against aii the cliques and all the trading (oliticiuBH that could stand in a row from Vfash ldgton to San Francisco, California. Under this view of the matter, and with all th< I acts in relation to the nomination and rejectioi ol Mr. McGaUghey, we ihink the Senate are p.t tecily justified in the course they have pursu-'d and that the cabinet have committed a gross erro in recommending to our patriotic President th iii initiation ol such a man to such a high oflic< involving such responsibility, and in bnngin about such a collision at this early stage betwee he new President and the United Slates Senate. Bank Excitkmunt at Albany.?It seems that ' there ia a considerable bank excitemeat growing ' c out ot deTclopemeata mad* ia the matter of the Canal Bank, just now bre dkiog out at Albany. A short time back, a Mr. Olcott, the cashier, was tried for frauds in connection with the bank, and 17 we believe was acquitted. Hie trial, however, * brought out developments showing the state of morals of the hanking speculators, in a singular t* manner. Just new another report on this subject ^ has appeared, emanating from the Legislature, in " session at Albany, which makes yet further derr velepements, giving a beautiful statement of the momlB which have prevailed in the interior of tha1 ^ banking establishment. One of the funniest statements in this aflair is = the inventory of property presented by Edwin Croswell, one of the proprietors of the Argus ^ newspaper. In that statement, it seems he has been a general dealer in all sorts of things, and an h owner of every thing which can be enumerated in ua the catalogue of speculations. There are factory stocks, lots, mortgages, taverns, lands in the West, insurance company stocks, telegraph stock, State '** stock, steam stock, &c : in short, all sorts of things of this description are enumerated among hiu nrnrvrfir nmnnnf innr f A 171 000 Hll A PA ...? I'*"*'* ?/? umvuuw?.b f I?' ? ? ia- of various kinds; $-1,000 of which appear to be due to Prosper M. Wetmore, ex-Navy Agent of ?]j this city. Some of his opponents are making a great deal of fuss about this statement, and hold * ? him up lo the public indignation en account of it. We rather think, however, that Mr. Croswell is about as honest as nine-tenths of the bankers and o- brokers in this or any other State. The great error which our cotemporary committed was that of being concerned in other stock than that * of newspaper stock. Those persons who have too c many irons in the fire stand the chance of having some of them cooled, or of having the fire = go out altogether. In matters of business, the ^ best plan is always to concentrate one's ideas upon one special and singls occupation, and to exert all one's energy and sagacity in carrying out that object properly. If Mr. Croswell of Albany, had le always stuck to his new spaper, without wishing to get rich suddenly, he would haw been at this day ?n n verv resuectahle man. innt?nrl nf hpinir nn te to the world as one of that tribe of mortals who are [t- estimated as bank rogues. Mr- The Van Buren party?the old friends of Mr. he Croswell? are out against him with great indignaLte tion for his banking transactions; but we think M- the Van Buren party is fully as deep in the mire as t0 he is in the gutter, in that respect. ict ee Appointments in this Citt.?Great anxiety U [j?_ manifested among all parties, in relation to the apJir pointn:ents which are expected to be made here, in a few weeks or months, for Collector, Postmaster, 0f Sub-Treasurer, Marshal, Naval Officer, and other to important officers in this district. The various 0j cliques among the whigs are moving heaven and a earth, each for its own man. e According to the developementB made by previous [ie appointments, and the rule of action eliminated, which appears to regulate the cabinet in its selectiens, that rule is to give the appointments to those e(j put forward by the cliques which have the greatesi ne influence in Congress. Now, under this view ol in> things, we rather think the Seward clique of this 0f State and city, will hava the moBt influence in these lQe selections, as that clique is probably the stronges' in Congress, or will be at the next session. The on candidate for Collector, of this clique, is said to be James Bowea; who the others may be, we have ej. not heard as yet. General Sam Houston.?The correspondent of tne i>tv> iotk ax)>tcu states " mat senator P* Houston had gone off, and left Senator Rusk to he battle, single-handed, for Texas, in the debate on the protocol." Senator Houston was under an atill tachment to testify in a court in Texas, and was >e compelled to leave; and he knew very well that e- his colleague, Senator Rusk, even single-handed, was equal to any emergency that might arise '6 touching the interests of Texas. The two Texan 'y Senators have preserved the respectability of the i- Senate, and have done more than any other two ie Senators to soften down and soothe the aspentiei id and bitterness of sectional and party spirit in the to councils of the nation, jApropot? Gen. Houston's a famous address to the South, in reply to Mr. Cal? houn, is a capital paper, and should be published, to We shall find room for it at soon as possible. as >e, False News fbom California .?The newspa ce pers all round the country are full of false intelliin gence, false letters and false news, purporting to he come from California. Accounts have been given m (o the 20th of January, when it is well known that he the latest intelligence from San Francisco and he those quarters is only brought down to the 23d of it December. Various attempts have been made to |ft heax the public with pretended California news, r- The first we remember was by letters from Louis's ville, in Kentucky, one of which came to us, parts porting to be later intelligence, which was nothing a. but the mere manufacture of aome hlr?/?iri,?o/i nm West. n From Vrmuuela.?We understand, from phis Tata letters received from Maracaibo, by mercanid tile houses in this city, dated in the latter end of t- January, that peace and quietness had once more been restored in that city. Paez's forces (the ina surgente) had left the place some time since, and ie as the action between them and Monagaa'l (go" to vernment troops) at the mouth of the hver Julia, it* up the lake, had been decisive in favor of Monagas, it was anticipated and hoped that the Paes it party would hereafter keep easy, r There has been a law made within the last year, >, in the rejniblic of New Granada, which the other g South American republics would do well t^make d also; it is to this eflecti?that the government >f will not be responsible for any damage done to the r property of loreign residents during political ex. e citemt nts. This law is seemingly a harsh one, e but as foreign residents generally are very fond of e meddling with the politics of thes- republics, it e would prevent their being so ready to do so when >e their property is put in as much jeopardy as that of >r the natives whom they incite to revolution. s, t - ?? a- ' - ?

National Theatbe.?This house was pretty well filled last evening considering the unfevoreble stete of the weather, and Mose, Sykesey and their two deerles, Llse end Jenny, were as raoy as ever, in their trip to California. Bythe-by, we bare seen a letter from the gold reglone going the reande, in whleh the writer states he has ,discovered a " ledge of gold." He was net the flrat who found it, as Moee hae, every evening for the lust six or eight weeks, pleked out snoh a ledge at the National, maoh to his own delight and that of the audience too. Tom and Jemmy was next played with its usual suooess. To-night Mr. Tltton puts his name up for a benefit, the first one be has taken at this house. He is a very popular member of the oompaay, an excellent aotor, and a worthy young man. We hope his friends will not forget his appeal to-night. A new comte drama, entitled "Whleh Is the King ?" will be played first, after which the two loeal dramas, and to conclude with the romantio drama of " Maurloe the Woodcutter."

Broadway Ciaoui ?Last evening, this eharmlsg place of amusement was not se well attended, in oonteqnence of the unpleasant state of the weather. The performances were, as usual, exoellent. The daring feats of horsemanship and the wonderful sagacity shown by the ponies, were truly astonishing. The grouping and posturing of the Rivers family are remarkably olever.

TKLEUKAPHli IflTELLliiENCK Unmmarjr* o Below will be found Beveral despatches by tele- 1 !r8|'b, detailing the most recent intelligence from 1 anous parts of the Union. In the United States Senate, the business was t inncipslly contined to the debate, in secret sea- g don, of the Protocol question ; and a message was received from the President, in reply to a resolution of Mr. Benton, calling for information on t hat subject. The opinion seems to prevail, that i

lothine will be elicited in this discussion calcu- i ated to invalidate the treaty, or to cast any re* proach upon the late administration. Among other Dominations submitted, was that of Ex-Governor 1 Pennington, of New Jersey, as Governor of the * territory of Minesota. The rumor that the axe of proscription was to { fall upon the necks of the subordinate officers in j the bureaus transferred to the Home Department, in contradicted. Our despatches from Albany will be found more t than usually interesting; considerable industry is evinced by members of both houses; and various { measures, of importance to the public at large, are l in a state of progress. The bill providing for the J election of three additional Judges of the Superior i Court of this city has become a law, and they will ? be cheEen at the xext charter election. The iol- 1 lowing bills were reported favorably upon in the 1 Senate:?A bill for protection against fires in the city of New York; a bill to incorporate the New York and Havre Steam Navigation Cempany. A j resolution was reported, to confer gold medals and the thanks of the Legislature upon certain officers in the Mexican war. The afternoon session of the \ Senate was devoted to the consideration of the bill concerning the Code of Practice. In the House, the following bills were passed:? The bill organizing the courts of Brooklyn; the 1 New York Marine Court bill; a bill for the preservation of newspapers ; and an important bill limit, jng the amount of damages, incases of death resulting from carelessness on railroads. The wharfage bill was under discussion, and was referred to a select committee. The homestead exemption bill was defeated. Various important resolutions were passed, for which we refer to our despatches. In the Pennsvlvnnia I .pmsliitnre the hill fnr the completion of the Northern branch ol the Penn- ' eylvama canal, to connect with the New York line ' ot canals, has been defeated in the lower house. Thelltilcan Protocol?The Continuation of Jllr, Benton's Speech, dec. dee. Waihinoton, March 31,1840. The debate on the protocol will probably terminate sooner than It waa at first expected, the Senators on both sides of the ohamber believing that nothing has been elicited oalonlated to invalidate any artlole of the treaty. It Is now probable that a vote will be taken Immediately on the olose of Mr. Benton's speech, and a resolntien will be adopted, declaring the Protocol to be in perfeot aeoordanoe with the articles it refers to; and that no blame attaches to thelate administration in this matter. This resolution will be Buppwwu vj mix buo uoiuuorauv lavnoen ?uu pureru whig*. A conference fu bold yesterday by the democratic 1 members, at which it til determined that there be no longer any oonfidence plaoed in Mr. Benton. Mum. < Hamlin and Bradbnry, although oorely againet their < will, are oompelled to oppose Mr. Benton, on Mr. Clifford's aooonnt. It is said that Do La Rosa, the Mexican Minister, Is privy to this movement of Mr. Benton. That ( be warmly approves of It is unquestionable, as it would be greatly to the Interest of Mexleo If Mr. Benton were to sueeeed.

This negro was arrested, a few days age. and detained a short time on suspicion of having this wateh In his possession; but no evidenoe then appearing, the negro was discharged This watoh was than delivered np to the negro, who pawned It for $16, in order to pay the lawyer's fees. The owner Is now found for the wateh, and the negro committed for trial.

The officer was oonteyed to the oity hospital, where hlg wounds were dressed; and subsequently he was taken to bis resldenoe; the two prisoners were looked up In the Tombs to await tbe result ot the injuries Jibnracting Money from Lettert.? Offloer Stephens arrested, yesterday, a woman by tbe name of Margaret Conner, on a obarge preferred against ber by one Margaret Cartas, of 266 Washington street,In abstracting too $6 bank bills from two separate letters.

Tbe postman brought to the bouse two letters at different times, direetsd to Margaret Cartas. Kaob of these letters oontalnet1 $5 from ber husband. The letters were taken from tbe postman by Margaret Connor, who opened them and appropriated the money to ber own use; when deteoted, theexouse she give was, that she thought they came from her own husband, as she bad not received any from him slnoe he left; and although the name on tbe letter was Cartas, she believed it must mean Connor, enly another way of spelling it. The magistrate, however, thought otherwise, and oommittfd Mrs. Connor to prison for trial. Ji Singular Box of Segart.?On Monday night, one of the policemen of tbe 6th ward arrested a negro going down Anthony street, quite late, who wai carrying under bis arm a segar box covered over very auspieieusly with a piece of old rag. This bex attracted tbe eye of the pelioeman, wbo took the negro into custody, and conveyed him to the station bouse. The box was taken from the negro, who would not give tbe pollotman any satisfaction as to where he obtained it. When tbe box was exposed from under tbe rag, the nolloemen mustered around, smaoklng their lips, feeling confident, from tbe outward marks on the box, that it contained seme of tbe best kind of segars. Under this impression, the polloemen were exceedingly anxious to open it that the brand might ba tasted. The box was then opened, and to the consternation of tbe polloemen, instead of being tberln soma nice bundles of segars, what do you think it wai? Wbv a little dead negro bftbj. Tbe policemen, at the eight of the little creature, began to oeogb and spit about a* If they had smoked a very unpleasant eegar; soma laughed, while ethers were vexed at the disappointment. But such was tbe oase, and the faot oould not be altered. It was a dead baby, and not aegars, muoh to tbe dissatisfaction of the polloemen. The negrs explained the matter to the oaptain of polioe, which was aaoertalned to be correet, as the child was still born, and ne unfair means to oause death had been used towards the little creature. The bcx was then closed over again, and the shady babe was reserved for the consideration of Mr. Coroner Walters. Reentry of Property ? Quick Work?The dwelling houre occupied by Col. Peers, No. 02 White street, was entered on Tuesday afternoon by some thief, and one overooat and a cloak stolen from the entry, valued at $26. Tbe facts having been oommunioated to that efficient officer, Wo. H. Stephens, of the lower polioe, that officer, after a few hours searoh, discovered the property in a seoond hand clothing shop in Orange street, where they bad been sold, in all probability, by the rogues. Thelofllcer is on the traok of the thieves, and no doubt, before twenty four hours they will be in onstody. jf Fugitive Forger.- The young man, by the name of Frederiek Billings, who stands oharged with several forgeries in the city of Washington, will be taken back for trial by Captain Goddard that is, if the Judge here permits him to go, before whom a habett corpus is now pending.
