Hew York, Friday, March 30, IM9< New* from California. The steamship Northerner will probably bring us the next newa from California. She left this port on the 1st instant, and arrived at Chtgres on lrwi. cl>. ut.c nmain there ahnnt ten Hnva t.,? www ww*. ? for the arrival of the steamship California at Panama, from San Francisco, under an' arrangement with several insurance offices to take on board all the gold duit destined tor this country. She probably left Chagrea on the 20th, and may be expected at Charleston to-morrow. She would touch at Havana lor coal. The Calitornia was to leave San Franciaco about the 1st ot March. Her news from the gold region will, therefore, be two months later. Our last authentic accounts from that part, were of the 29th ot December. It la thought that the Northerner will bring this news, and from one hundred thousand to half a million doilars worth of gold dust. It is said that she will bring one hundred thousand dollars, even if the California doea not arrive at Panama In time to send her gold and despatches in her. In the event of the non-arrival of the C. before the departure of the N., we may reasonably expect the later news in either the Crescent City or Falcon, both shortly due at this port. Over two hundred thousand dollars of California gold have already been received in this country. It came in the following lots:? Asbivaliof California Oold. Bo.ton, March 28, ship Tzar, from Honolulu. .$100,000 u " 28, ship Crusader, from Valparaiso ? .. v . . . 65.000 V IB LDafin, BJ LIDUt. Ulimm ( au viAl I Via CbagTes, by Mr. Carter 80.000 Via < bagrss, in until lot* 5 000 ' OTtrland at St Joseph, MiMsarl 10 000 Total $320,000 Very little of this amount has reached this ]>ort. It arrived nt Boston and at the South. One hundred thousand dollars of that received in Bost< n has been sent to the mint in Philadelphia. That brought by Lieutenant Loeeser, was on government account. That belonging to Mr. Carter was also Bent to the mint. That received at St. Joseph was exchanged for goods; and that brought by Messrs. Phelps, Melius, and others, over the Isthmus, was in small parcels, more to exhibit as a curiosity than any thing else. We euw in the hands ol Mr. Melius, who has just received $32,000 at Boston, four or five lumps, one of w hich weighed nearly five ounces. With these facts, we leave the public to await the arrival of the Northerner. The (Vew Administration and Its Dincultles. The party warfare, which we predicted long ago, is already being waged against the President ? Those wbigs who were loudest in opposition to General Taylor before his election, are now most clamorous in urging him to violute his pledges; and because he lefuses to do so, there is now bitter blood stirred up against him in the party. II the teose of the people could at present be ascertained, it w ould be seen that it is not in the ranks of the democrats his most determined opponents are to ' e found, but among those whiga who, having first d- nousced him, now seek to shape his policy and coerce his action. Even in the cabinet this spirit manifests itself, and the organs of those who are, hapi ilj , in a minority in that body, are already giving tongue in condemnation, not of the cours: I ol the President?for that they do not as yet veniure openly to decry?but in abusing, in advance, | *1 e line ol p? licy which they fear he intends to pirsue. y r Fillmore, the Vice President, is said to be among those who urge upon the President a ,1 roecriptive course. Mr. E wing and Mr. Collamer, whose vtiwg have met with reprobation lrom the majority of the cabinet, are said to be still engaged in the tndeavor to bring about such a combination of circumstances as will force the President to the adoption of the policy they recommend. Hut it is tvidtnt the administration can only f-uetain itself by the wise and moderate course indicated by Mr. Meredith and Mr. Clayton. These gentlemen are very dtcided whigs, but they do net counsel the President to establish proscription jor opinion's sake as a doctrine of the whig party, merely because there are men hanging around the d (Hrtrnents who desire office. They wish to plate the party in a commanding position, in which it cannot be assailed with the accusation of proscription, and to vindicate, at the same time, the sincerity of General Taylor's pledges, given before his election, and also embodied in his '? ugurul address. The country will undoubtedl/ eus ain (it neral Taylor, and the majority in his cabinet who advocate the anti-proacriptive prin< i.>le ; and we have heard some of the most prominent members of the democratic party in ths innate declare, that it such be the President's l>olif y, they will never be found in that body in an attitude of factious opposition. It was, we presume, in view of this dawning 1 opposition in the ranks of the whigs, that Mr. .Benton, moved with solicitude for the perilous position of the President, made hts late demonstra'job of homage and fealty to the new regime, by an assault on the late i dnnnistiation in regard to the protocol explanatory of our treaty wnh Mexico. To ingratiate himself with the new dynasty, he wished to present to Csnsar the head of the murdejed Poinpey ; and in order to present the head, lie was first obliged to attempt to cut it ofl. But the new administration would not have the head, or the alliance, at any price ; and it was iudurius io s> c the trepidation with which the n.embers of the chhinet repudiated all connection wnh the gr?at Misi-ourian llow an experienced |> litician, like Mr. Benton, could have ever supposed that his movement with regard to the protccol, calculated as it was tc vmbarrass the administration, could have rendered him acceptable as an ally, is only to be accounted for by the conside- ' ration that, for along time past, Mr Benton Ins J not exhibited that sagacity which signalized his aily career. Mr. Iienton is, at present, a political diner-mt He cannot be re-elected, it is said, from his own time; and it is rumored that he designs going n> Cu for :h- t urp? c o establishing himself with the people of that interesting country ia such a way as to secure his electioa, at a future day, to tae Senate of the United States Whether this de- ' sign will succeed, if it really exist?and of its existence there ia every probability?is extremely 1 problematical. Many Senators go out to California this spring, with the double view of miking themselves acquainted with the wants of that country, so as to legislate for it uuderstandingly next session, an ', at the same time, of counteracting Mr. Benton's designs. The fact is, Mr. Benton is now regarded as excommunicated from out the pale of the democratic church, and it is very doubtful if he can ever regain the position, with his own party, that he has lost by his recent course. He has always lached, but recently more than ever belore, the chief element of popularity ? singleness of purpose. He has been accused of inordinate selfishness; and his letters to the people of California are said to he dictated hv the with tn aggrandize his own family. Whether these charges be true or untrue, time must determine. We merely mark the curious phenomenon of Mr. Benton's fall from the position he has formerly occupied as leader of a great party, as he was acknowledged to be in Mr. Van Buren's time; and if we Bpeak of the charges made against him, it is merely to analyse the causes of his decline. But we note also a curious fact, that for the last five years the efforts of Mr. Benton in the Senate have been confined to spasmodic and hysterical assaults on those who had in any way interfered with or offended against him. John Tyler, John C.Calhoun, Doctsr Houston, General Kearny, and Mr. Polk, have been, one after another, the objects of his resentment and attack. It is not surprising, in this view of affairs, that the present administration should be very solicitous to have it known that they decline the honor of Mr. Benton's alliance. Mr. Clayton may be anxious to form a new republican party, but he is by no means willing that Mr. Benton should, in the language of Jeremy Diddlerism, " ring in " on him. If the administration go oa as it has commenced, making only such removals as are judicious and necessary, and not proscribing for opinion's sake, they will build up for themselves more strength than they can obtain by a hundred alliances like that ot Mr. Benton. Thk New Postaok Treaty.?Doctors, it is said, will differ ; but they are net the only class who disagree in judgment en cases submitted to thernWe will show that postmasters will differ too. A few days since, the following pronunciamettio was issued from the Post Office Department at Washington :? PotT Office ditrartmkut, ) Contract Office, March 2(1 th, 1849. j Sir?Prloes curreat, and othsr oiroular*. srs not recognized In the postal treaty with Great Britain, a* each Letters are 24 oents (single rate) no matter whether written or printed. Newspapers, 2 oents, to be paid in advance. Respectfully, your obedient servant, S R HOBBIE, First Assistant Tostaaster General. Postmaster of Charleston, S. C. For the information and benefit of our readers, we embodied the substance of this communicatitn, or jrronunciamcnto, in an editorial yesterday, under the impressisn that it was the law of the land en the subject of postage on circulars; but we have since discovered that the postal authorities of. England take a different view at the subject. We have seen circulars sent to this country by the steamship Canada, and we find that they were charged only newspaper postage, of one penny sterling each, or two cents in American currency. The post office authorities of England and the United States are, therefore, at issue in regard to the construction of that provision of the postal treaty recently entered into by the two countries. Postmasters, as well as doctors, will, therefore, disagree. We would like to know which are right? and we dare say the mercantile community are as anxious as we are sn the subject. "A Good Ti.mb Comino."?We perceive that Father Ritchie has repented of his hostility to Gen. Taylor; for he now actually comes out with a long puff of the virtues of that heroic old man written by "a demecrat." It'is quite apathetic document. The writer proves, most conclusively, mai i,enerai layior is oouna iu spare mm ana nu fellow suflerers in the departments. We hail this agreeable omen of the return of the venerable Ritchie to common sense and reason. " Sweet are the necs of adversity." Tus Storm on the North River.?The Amenia ca started up the North River, but put back. The Orcgonand Fairfield went through. An old captain, thirty-three years on the river, says he never knew a btoi m so violent. The steamer Dutchess County, a small boat formerly used as a ferry boat, and lately called the Sacramento, plying between New York and Per kskill, went ashore about eighteen miles from ihe city, during the storm on Monday evening. Her cargo was thrown overboard, and the vessel will probably be a total loss. The passengers were all got on shore in safety. From St. Croix.?By the bark Isabella, Captain McKee, wh'ch arrived oa Wednesday frem St. Croix, we have received our files of the St. Croix Avir, to the 12th inst. They, however, contain no news. Police Intelligence. Gomnment Jewels.?In blinding to the arrest Of Jim W ebb and Tom Hsnd. a few days ago, on a charge of stealing the government jewels, we notloed that Hand bad been taken to Washington and was there to be eommttted on the oharge. Such bee been the oaee, end cffloer Mr. A. M. C. Smith, of this olty. who conveyed him thither, baa returned, and will now potslbly bring all his force to operate on Jim Webb, who Is now oonflned In the olty prison, in order to effect the restoration ef the preeious jewel*. Oa Wedreiday of this week, Mr. Shepherd, the United Statee District Attorney, bad another private latervtew with J m Webt( but the result of such laterview is kept from the publto, at least for the present. Thereiore, all (bat we can do as the ease now stands, without further develop emea i e, will he to goeeojat the compromise that will In all probabUlty take place between the government and tba burglar, Jim Webb. It might be possible that Mr. Smitb, oa bis return, brought on from Washington such documents as may juitify the District Attorney in making arrangements whereby the prisoner Webb will receive hie disebarge from prison, and such evidence will be brsught, through certain Influences will insure the eonvietloa of Hand, whiob is as much, asunder the existing ciroumstances, as the governmentean well expect; and thusthe government, I upon paying the reward, eonvloting one or the robbers, i and allowing the headgdevll (Webb) to esoape, will ac- 1 oordlngly receive back their jewels. This makes the t second time the jtwela have I eenhtolen The first time they were returned in e very mysterious manner, on , the payment of the reward, and this time it seems they J will be restored on the payment of the reward and the , conviction of one of the rogues. Thus we go. Fair play is a jewel. Jim Webb is oertainly an ingenious opera tor, beyond a doubt. , Ji Singular Can ?Wo notloed, yesterday, the or- , Kit of t nit etllrd Ko;il D.

Mr. Brougham Lee Indeed performed his task well; and this dramatio adaptation of ao popular a novel Is welt worthy of being payed at the Bowery theatre, where eo many (dramatic triumphs bave been achieved. Upwards of 30 000 copies of the novel have been sold, and it hae been eo generally read that every one la familiar with the story, a> d tbu? all the points ire readily understood and appreciated by the audiences. Though the piooe Is net one In wbieb much scenio display is expeo'-ed the scenery which Is introduced in itat the Bowery is of the most beautiful kind, and adds very muoh to toe general interest of tt e piece. We would strongly reoomtneod this piese to the aitsntion of tha public , it will be found tbattteblgh commendations whioh we bestow on it are fsr from being exaggerated ; on the eontrary, for Interest of story, good noting, beautiful aoenlo dls play, and general excellence, as a dramatio entertainwent, ' Jane Kyre" Is not to bo surpassed. Miss Wemyss and Mr Gilbert perform tha principal parts with all tbe excellence wbieb their gteat talents, as performers, enable them to do. Tho amusing musical extravagansa of " Jenny Lind" was playsd after "Jane Kyro " In this plsoe, Miss Taylor and J H. Hall are wrwy suturing, iw is ?iwse/n icwitou whu iuuuu spiHsunr. To ocmpltte tbe evening's entertainments, tbe ' Last Days ot romp?)l" was played Tbla piece U one of the moat popular ones that baa ever been played, and it la now performed with all tbe splendor that originally made It famona. Tbe manager of tbe Bowery baa lost none of bia enterprise ; be always keeps well forward In the rare of iheatrioala, and, as n natural consequence, bia boose is moat liberally patronised; for tbe publio will go wbere they get the most amassment, we see that Van Amburg the great lion king, la engaged, and will ahertly appear in some new pieces. Tbla will draw a vast orowd. To night, last evening's bill will be repeated. Bboadwat Thsatbb.?Balfe'sOpera, the" Enohant. reel." was prodnoed last evening for the fourth time, before a orowded audience. As presented on the boards of the Broadway theatre, It is a gorgeous speotaole, seldom equalled in this country. Indeed, the seenery la ef surpassing splendor, and tbe costumes and properties of great magnlfloenoe. Tbe singing of Mr. and Mrs. Seguin anl of M. Reeves, drew down the warmest appluure; and almost every ohange of scenery, exhibiting as it did the Immense oostllness of tbe decorations, elicited the liveliest approbation. The performance of the " Knobantress " draws nightly crowded bouses, and seems to gain, rather than lose, after every representation, in fresh nesi and inters st ? Those who take the prinoipal parts beoome eaoh evening more perfect in their role. The opsra will be repeated this evening. National Thiaiu.-The California fever has been somewhat abated for tba last few weeks, everywhere save at the National, where it haa raged as fiercely as ever, and the doings and sayings of the immortal ' More," and his racy adventures in the land of promise, have amused thousands of our oltlsens who delight to patronise this hoase ; and well they may, for It is as well regulated and excellent a theatre as oan be had. The company is excellent, the stage arrangements most carefully and faithfully attended to, and every thing whioh Is produced Is done In first rate style. To night, quite an interesting affair will take place, vie.: the benefit of the beautiful Miss Carline, whose danoing is so universally admired. This yeung lady is a most talented young denteute, and her performances are always much applauded. We believe this is the first time she has appealed to her friends for a benefit, and we are sure it will not be made in vain. The bill she presents is a varied one The romantio drama of the ' Dumb Oirl of Oenoa" will afford her an opportunity of appearing in the graoeful part of Juliette ; besides whioh she will, in the oourse of the evening, dance several favorite danoes, and also appear as Abel in the beautiful series of tabltaux. " The First Fratriolde," " Mose in California." " Tom and Jemmy," and the farce of ' 111 be your Second," will make up the entertainments With such a bill, on suoh an oocasion, we basard little in predicting a very fHll house. Buxton's Theatre ?There was a large audienee at this theatre, last evening. ' Dombey and Sen" are still signally triumphant. We have more than onoe spoken In terms of just praise of Burton's Captain Cuttle; but It appears to us that every time he performs the character, he throws more spirit into it, and represents it with mtre truthfulness?if, indeed, sooh finished eo'lng can admit of improvement. Brougham, as Mejrr Joe Bsgstock. looks his charaoter; his wit. fun, ana facetiouenees won for him loud and general ap plause; and as Jack Bunsby, he is first rate. Mrs. Brcughsm's Suian Nipper was capital; and Raymond, as Mr Trots, was exceedingly droll He does his part in a manner that does him znuoh credit. Mr. Lynne, as Dombey. is mort rxoellent; and, in faot, all who played in the piece acquitted themselves In a highly rsepeotable style. Broadway Circus, 5&7 Broadway ?After a season of anrivailed suooess, to the no small mortification of the old, as well as the young, and we may add, to onr un xi ptrpviiBi rvgrnii, ;?u? tcouiupiiBusu wruupo vi equestrians, including the Sand* family, the Rivera family, the inimitable clowns family, and that amusing member of tha smallest specimen of the horse-flesh family, of wblcb tha past and present representation is Tom Thumb, Jr., bare announced this as their last week The word "positively," however, is omitted: bnt there is no confidence in olrous companies, a ad dependence on their announcements may be, after nil, like the riding-master's whip to the incorrigible clowns? n box, ef jireteWo nihil. Nevertheless, there is no time to be loet The inerensed crowd that, despite of wind and weather, last night filled the house, to enjoy the banquet prepared for them, indicated their superiority in evary branch in which the arena could be diversified in its manly, rational, and athletic exercises. This evening's entertainments are equally diversified; and let it not be forgotten that there will be two performances to-morrow?at two o'olock, for the entertainment of the juveniles, and at the usual evening hour, for all the admirers of those classic and refined exhibitions. This, perhaps, may be their last display. Christy' Mimstskls.?The crewds that tend towards Mechanic's Hall every evening, and fill up every nook and corner of the concert room there, show how much these elegant singers are appreciated by the public. They continue to give the same raey programmes t very evening; and as they oonsist of a long list of elegant songs, besides the two burlesques of the "Voyage Music ale" and the " Cowbellogians," none oan complain that they do not get ample music enough fbr their money. I New Orleans Serknaderb.?These modern Orpheuses are drawing erowded houses every night, and the beautiful music which they give, the laughable musical panorama, inimitable Italian soenas, and all the admirable songs which they know so well how to sing in the most efieotive style, always elicit thunders of applause. A visit to the Serenaders 1s one of the pleasantest ways of passing an evening. Mr. DaMrsTRR's Concert.?This favorite vooaltist who has so often aroused the sweetest and dearest remembrances .of early days within the minds or his auditory, will give one of his evenings of melody, at the Tabenaele, to-night |His programme oontalns several genu; and It needs from us only to say. that his patrons will retire, as usual, highly delighted with the entertainment offered for their pleasure and amusement Chinese Museum.? Of all the collections of foreign curiosities, this one is undoubtedly the largest and most compute ever sot together, m it giree a meet complete end comprehensive idee of the stole of living among that extraordinary people the Chinese. For centuries their enstoms and habits have been almost entirely unknown to the rest of the world, the vague accounts of travellers being the only source of information; here, however,we have the actual thing Itself; all their onstoms and habits illustrated more completely than any written work could ever do. Every one ought to visit it. Panorama e? tiir Hcdion River ?It it really surprising how accurately and naturally all the most minute points on the Hudsen river are transferred to the oanvast of this stupendous Panorama. All the exhibitieas of this kind which have hitherto been exhibited, have been of distant localities; thus the majority of those who saw them were unable to judge of their accuracy. Here, however, the orttles have had a clear Held to And Fault, If fault or ommlssion there were: but tbe universal opinion has been expressed, that this Panorama of the Hudson is tbe most accurate, spirited and natural that can be dene. It is exhibited every evening. Siokora Ciocca.?This graceful danseuse is for the present In Albany, engaged at tbe Museum, and nightly receiving the greatest applause from the numerous admirers who frequent that theatre. The newspapers of Albany are dally praising the charming Ballet ina. The Signora will tetnrn in a few days, snd will reappear at the Bowery theatre, where she is the favorite; and really she deserve It The Festival or the America* Dramatic Ford Amui iatior ? Great preparations are making to render this famous entertainment the most complete and unparalleled in the annals of city notabilities. The president of tbe day will be David C. Colden, Esq , ever prrmpt at the call of benevolence. Thirty of the best men in New York have acoepted tbe task of being vicepresidents on tbe occasion. Coleman and Stetson havs i xprtreed their determination to out do themselves, if ibat be possible. In the excellence of the comfort tcdlly, which will be supplied at tbelr profuse but elegant table, while the traneed soul, the while, may ' It-p itself in elyelnm," firm tbe sweet inducements of baimony.

But to ene who watobea the morementa of political parties, it beoomea an apparent fact, needing no argument to prove it, thet three primary meetiagaare of the greateat importance, for it la here that the first iaelinatloa la given to mattera which end in the election of the flret offieea Of cur olty, State, and nation.

It is, therefore, of great importance that the twig ahould be properly heat, when so large a tree may take Its Inelinatlon from it. It is worth while to watch the curious movements of tha political nurserymen, as they give a pull here, and put a braoe there, in order to bring about the desired result.

The duties and reig>onsibilitlee of the various offices I have been called upon to fill, have been greatly heightened by the cordial support I have at all times received; and this additional testimonial that my efforts to serve the public are kindly regarded, imposes new obligations upon me. It would have afforded me pleasure, if I could again yield to the wishes of my fellow-oltlsens; but knowing that tbere are many among us quite as well, if not better, qualified for the effloe, and trusting that I may be excused from longer service.

The very clouds stem to be weeping at the sad condition of our streets, and endeavoring by their tears to purify them; but it Is more tban an augean task, and we must, as soon as possible,get a Common Council which will undertake tbe bsreulean task of scraping and scouring tbo city tbort ugbfares. We can expect but small redress, now that politics have begun to absorb the attention of tbe authorities, until alter the election Is over.

The OrsniNu or thb Season.?The clouds of along and disagreeable winter being absut to disperse, hopes are entertained that the oomlng sporting season wil1 be ushered in with Its usual pleasant aooompenlments of agreeable drives?an Invigorating atmosphere?the beautiful prospect of green fields of waving grain? and pastures bedecked with gay and beautiful flowers. The leaf-buds of the trees are beginning to swell, and the naked branches will soon be elad in the robes of a season especially devoted to love and muslo by the feathered ereatlon, whose happy and cheerful strain' canse so many pleasing emotions in the heart of th* listener. And while nature is ohanging her attire, the sporting men are not idle in their endeavors to keep pace with the season In the various Improvements which they are making for the sporting months which are now opening upon ns. New vehicles and harness< of the most splendid and costly def criptlons, have been made and arepnaking?old enes are being burnished up?horses have gene into training?the Union and Centreville race courses have been Improved and got n readiness?purree are advertised, which will no 1 doubt be filled?and everything Is in that forward state of activity, so Indicative of a brilliant season. The sporting season on Long Island will be opened with great spirit; and among the variety of inducements to good trotting, it Is understood a new feature on the turf in this neighborhood will be Introduced. It is in contemplation to give a number of gentlemen's plates during the summer-about one a month. Too much Oehhot be said la favor of this Idea' as It must tend to bring a number of private horses to the post; the owners of these nags being gentlemen who would never have consented to enter them for a purse of any amount. These gentlemen will now have an opportunity of testing the speed of favorite horses, witbont subjecting themselves to the Imputation of being engnged in gambling; and there ie reason to lelieve that their presence on the turf will raiee to a high elevation the extremely useful and interesting eport of trotting?a sport that should be cultivated ae a mean* of developing the powers of that noble and spirited animal, the horse. The value of trotting koisee has been greatly enhanced within late years, and veiy high prices have been paid to farmers who , have given attention to raising stock of this description Itis. In fact, a new source of Income,and will wellrtpsy the care and attention necessary.
