Tilt- Ptocrt (Ituga nt WaMilngtoni This i? the commencemeut of the third week ! of tl.e session, and us yet the House of l'epresen- ! t itives at Washington has not succeeded in ell'ecting fin ?rg8cization or electing a Speaker. Today, tlie btrugglt- between the parties will 1 recommenced, and in to-morrow's paper we . -hall give tlie result, if any is arrived at. Th? Smate have show n their tense in declining to wait any longer ?u the House, and going to work on executive business. lTic Ntw A|> untl the I'nltrd SiIrHi Si-nale, The Senate at Washington having patiently awaited the organization of the other branch of the national legislature, for two vvei -ka, and no Speaker having been dected, have determined, it epiears, to go to work and transact such business i en they can legislate upon without the action ot j the House. Accordingly, they appointed a com mittee on Saturday,to Wait upon President Taylor, andinft>;m him that their b?dy had orgauized, fend was rtaily to receive any executive communication that he might h*ve to transmit. Tuts proCteding having take n p'ac-e, it is expected that the. President w ill send in a batch of nominations to the Senate, this morning, for their action. A great many of the nominees of the present administration, who have been shivering in their shoes for month past, will, therefore, soon know their fate, and either b; allowed to hold <>n to their offices, or rec? ive a covp de grace that will be more summary tlian e^reeable to their sensibilities. There it a good deal of guurioii'y in this region to know the lute of the appotntiueuta that have bt?n conferred on Col. Webb, the Minuter to Austna, and Mr. Maxwt-11, the Collector c f the port. Seme eay that neither one nor the other Ins the tait ch?nce oi bt iuir confirmed, while others exI" : j an opinion ilidt both will he confirmed. Our o? u 11 inion, fnundt (1 en reliaLle information, U that Col. Webl> will be certainly rejected, and that f Mr M*\*ill escapes, 11 will be b> ihe "skin ot hit) teeth." A ft> at many complaints have been made against J the manner in which Mr. Maxwell host managed j the administration of the Custom !Iou.?c since hia J ajpoiatinent as well us against the way in which : he has distributed the offices ot thft famous establuhmei.t. The merchants are very loud in their complaints, aud say that there never was a tune j when they encountered bo many ditlicuhiea ua 1 | announces, in transacting thtir business, as th'-y do at prt sent, arising from the appointment of iaef- ' licit nt bud int Sj able j>er>ons in the subordinate d< - ' partner!*, ucd new arrangements that have been introduced, of u narrow-minded and lawyer-like ! charucttr. 1 he lart ^acies of complaint that has bun mae'e against Mr. Maxwell's mana^em^nt, is that all the liggage ol passengers arriving at -this pott, ? transierted, by h s order, to the public , stor's, and th<u examined b> lore it is d- livered up t<> the owners.

There was a promise then given him that his salary would be raised also, but that promise was never redeemed, notwithstanding his extra labors and. exertions during the plague last summer. He applied, tome fortnight or three weeks ago, to the Council for an increase to at least $2,000, but his application was shelved, so as tog?t rid of it without a discussion upon its merit*, and nothing has been heard of it since. There is too much reason to believe that at the bottom of this unfairness there is an attt'mu* against him,arising out of his endeavors to purify the city during the ravages o^ the pestilence, and hie consequent popoularity; while the remism ss of the Hoard of Health, and their connivance at nuisances, incurred (or them the odium of the public Had the City Inspector made himself subservient to private interests, and neglected t! e public welfare, he would probably have h?d his demand granted nt once, and receive, besides, seme compensation for his extra exertions during the mmmer and fall. The Resident Physician, who receives a salary of $1,000 from the State, and whose office is almost a sinecure, was present* d by the Common Council with a donation of *1,000, and the physician of Staten Island, who litis ii similar (situation, $600, for their services during the cholera, though no person would think of comparing what either of these gentlemen did, lor nmonnt or difficulty, with what devolved on the City lafp-ctor. He was at hi* post day and night, and employed an additional clerk atlas own exp? nse, in order to get thron ^h the accumulating piei s ol business; and though the law did not require it, (lor he was only obliged to keep his office open every working day, from 9 till 5 o'clock,) yet lie gave his evenings and his Sundays cheerfully to the pubi c service, risking his health and his life ! in the discharge ol his duty. But the Common Council have given him no compensation. Is this even-handed justice 1 There is not one of the denftttmPTifa n?nrf? im-inrhirt th if hm If invnltr^a ' health and lives of the people, und embraces vital statistics, which are of the utmost value to medical science; and Dr. White's reports, in this respect, are extremely inteieBting, and constitute a new feature, which had been wholly neglected belore. In a w ord, the onerous duties ot the ofiice w? re never performed as he performs them. We are no friends of extrav igatit exj>enditiire, and ne have often had occasion to censure the cheese-paring, penny-wise, pound-foolish squanders g of the public money; but in this, as in every other department, the true economy, the way tobest serve the public interests, is to give a fair, and even a liberal salary, and to secure competent, upright, pains-taking nv it, who will give a quid proi/uo. We care not ?i tig for the City Inspector more than for any of the other heads of departments we gave him credit in the summer months, when he was right, and we are as free to censure him to-morrow, if he fails in his duty. Hut we can easily see that fair play ha* not been shown him in the present in stance, and as chroniclers of passing events, we fttl bound to publish the fact.

Although Great Britain out her eyes upon this ipot, with her nsual cui idity, along time ago, yet ahe did ?ot act decidedly end offensively in her aggressions, until the United Statea, with characteristic keenness, entered into a treaty with the government of Honduras, aecured the Island of Tigre, and began to prepare to oonatruot a canal, to connect the Paoiflo and Atlentlo oceans, by the way of the lake of Nicaragua. Thia appears to have Inflamed the jealousy, end stirred up all the reg? nod envy, of Kngland. The oourse Kngland Laj 6o lately taken, Las drawn universal attention towards Central America; and we purpose, in some dugxee, to tatUfy this natural oraving for information.

BIOSEV M.VIIKET. 1 Buitdny, Utc, IO?d p> 1, The stock market closed U a?y yesterday ?t the decline, and the fancies apptar to have fallen into disgrace again with speculators. The movements of the bulls to inflate prices hive proved full aa successful as we anticipated. It is getting to be exceedingly dangerous to attempt any expansion of prices for these subterranean stocks, as the prospect of getting saddled with them at high prices Is so great, that no one dare make the experiment. On this account, cornering operations have proved so disastrous to those who have originated them Purchasers are so likely to get so much stock, at such high prioes, that the market is dettroyed, and, as they cauuot hold, the only alternative Is to let prices down to as to draw in speculators. Combinations among bulls for perfecting a corner in nearly every fancy in the list, have invariably foiled, and, la most Instances, ruined many of those oonuern jd. Some of the richest houses iu Wall street have been mush reduced by losses on purchases of fancy stocks, fur the purpose of getting up what is termed a corner The bulls are principally speculators ef limited oapltal and sanguine temperament, and are too apt to loJk on the brlgbtaideoftbings. ande<sualiyapt tolose sl^ht of those contingencies calculated to depreciate public eia&dcnee and the market value of fancy stock securities, i'iio consequence is, frequent and extensive losses, and annually the ruin of scores of those who operate fur a rise. It should bo burne in mind, that a very slight clroumttarce will depress the market value of artificial or lm? aary securities, while It requires a loog series oI lcrtuuate and favorabio events to give an uftrarl impetus to pricos. It ii utterly impossible ti get up a rpeculatlre movement of any Importance In fancy stocks; and even the slight advances made from time to time result most disastrously to pjrubasers as they, in most cases, realize at lower prices, and therefore realize a loss. llailroed stocks, of the subterranean order, may, from time to tiiae, be slightly Inllated, bat the wiight upon them is becoming so great, that they must ultimately be pressed down to a deeper depth. We call them subterranean <tocl:s, because they art the foundation upon which all olhir railroad securities are ba'ed. and because they are so near bott ;ua that they may disappear at any tirue, and let the otii?r securities down to a lower level they now oocupy.
