r elusion than that spinners must be prepared to pay an advance when they again make their appearance in this market, which oannot either with aafetv or prudence be lcng deferred. By the last advioesfrom America. the receipts had lncreaaed. but the ahtpaenta to thla country were only 88.000 bales, against 1M 000 at the same period last year. The estimates ef the orop were much the same as previously estimated ?2 000.000 to 2 200 000 bales; and by talegraphlo despatches received at the moment of the steamer'* sailing, there bad liem a Killing frost throughout the cotton producing dlrti lets. By some this latter statement may require confirmation; but. from what we have beard, we frar it will prove but too correct. It Is beyoud ques tion tbat tbe limits hitherto sent out both by our own nricbants and spinners have been too restricted, and that the only cotton whioli we can receive for a length of time, cf any moment, will ha on Amerloau acoount. Though tbe demand has been very small all the week, and though prices have slightly tended to the buyer's favcr, still there has heeu mo pressure to sell on tbe part of the large holders.

He intimates very strongly, too, that there will be no indictment or trial, and claims fur the administration tint it discharged its ] whole duty, in promptly demanding the return of l!ey. This is certainly an extraordinary statement for Mr. Clayton to pat forward, through his private secretary. It really looks as if he and his asso- j ciates in the cabinet had interfered to pre* 1 vent the finding of any such indictment. Nor would we be at all suprised if there was such interference. It is well known that Mr. Clayton has, since his accession to a place in the cabinet, truckled and pandered to monarchy and despotism, nnd especially to Spain. Tor proof of this, we need go no further than refer to his conduct in relation to the steamship L'nited States, and to the movement which was set on foot in the I nited States, for the purpose of assitting the inhabitants of the island ot Cuba in throwing oil'the Spanish yoke and achieving their inde|wndence. 15ut il he has gone so far as to interfere with the course of justice in New Orleans, and screened the S|?msh Consul in that city from the penalties which he incurred in the abduction of Key, then indeed he has sunk himself lower than we thought he could. The smuggling away of Key was one of the most flagrant insults to the l'nited States that could be committed. It was an insult which should be atoned for as soon as possible, and the party who committed it ought to hive been prose- ' ruled and punished to the fullest extent <if the law I From these givings out of Mr. Clayton's private secretary, it may reasonsbly be concluded, if no indi< Unent against the Spanish Consul in New < >rleansbe found, or no trial take place, that Mr. l lay ton has interfered in the matter, and prevented it. If such be the case, the public will be able to form an opinion of the safety of the national b >nor in the hands of the present cabinet, and of the marwier in which the affairs of the governmental Washington are conducted. Not sstisfied with attempting to muzzle the independent press, it wil' appear, in such case, that Mr Clayton has stepped in and interfered with the course of justice, and preventtd a man from being punished, who has insuited our country, lor waui of courage to assume the responsibility.

This adds a new feature to our relations with Nicaragua, and of the proceedings which have recently taken place there, that will in all probability complicate them to a still greater extent while these things are going on. Mr. Harvey, the private secretary of Mr. Clayton* Secretary of State, nnd of the cabinet at Washington, is promulgating sentiments through the cabinet organs in Philadelphia and in New York, for the purpose of inducing the public to suppose that Mr. Squier, the American minister to the South American republics, has exceeded his instructions, in the course which that gentleman has taken since his appointment, as well toward* Nicaragua us in obtaining the cession of Tiger Island from Honduras, which, as our readers are no doubt aware, has produced a collision between the American and English representatives in that part of the world. That gentleman, at the instillation of Mr. Clayton, throws out the idea that Mr. Squier ap|<ears to have regarded annexation as the speciul object of his mission, and to have signalized some part of his diplomatic career by unnecessary zeal and intemperate exhibitions. Now, it is very well known, that from the time when the present cabinet came into power until the present, Mr. Clayton has bungled and mismanaged our foreign relations in such a manner as to create difficulties and explosions with almost every nation in the world, in both hemispheres. It Is un. necessary to refer to those diliiculties in detail, for it would be like repeating a twice-told tale to do so. Every one who reads the news of the day, and takes any interest in national affairs, is familiar with the horrible manner in which our foreign relations have been bungled by Mr. Clayton and his associates. For the purpose of making factitious capital for the cabinet, nnd himself as the leader, lie adopted this extraordinary and unheard of course of policy, by exciting the honorable feeling of nationality which characterizes the whole Amen- | can people, without distinction of party, and taming it to his own profit and advantage. This was his motive and objeet in producing the didiculty with M. Poussin, the French representative at Washington, which, happily for hiin, has not amounted to a great ileal, in consequence ot a , change in the French cabinet. Rut he has gone tsu far in some rases, and the Nicaragua business ;s an instance of it. As soon as Mr. Squir'a proceedings in relation to the affairs of that State, were made known, it was intimated that that gentleman had exceeded his instructions, which were alleged to be merely verbal; and as the proap?ct of a difficulty with Great Britain increased, Mr. Harvey, speaking for Mr. Clayton, repeated , in louder terms, that the cabinet was not responsible for Mr. Squier's proceedings. This new movement of the Hritish, in ordering a squadron to the neighbor hood of Panama, so as to be within call of the British Charge d'Affaires at Nicuragua, puts a new and a more serious feature on this business, nnd we shall watch w ith a good deal of interest, { Mr. Clayton's next move in this matter. From what has already been developed ami promulgated ( by his private secretary, however, we can readily gueps what it will amount to. He has got frightened, and, no doubt, intends to disavow Mr. Squier's pro- J ceedingi. on the ground that he exceeded his in- J stiuctions, and intends to sacrifice that gentleman. What a melancholy and humiliating position docs not tin* place the cabinet of (Jen. Taylor in, i nnd what an exhibition does it not furnish, of the weakness and imbecility of Mr. Clayton and his { associates! To direct a diplomatic agent to pur- i ?ue a particular course, and when such course lias be< n adopted, to disavow his proceedings, on the ground that he exciedrd his instructions, is one of the most paltry pieces ?t conduct that csuld b" imagined, and utterly unworthy of the character of an American statesman. The Speaker and Ike Cabinet. As yet the House of Kepresentatives have not succeeded in electing a Speaker, and of course legislation has not been commenced. One of the causes which has produced this anomalous and deplorable state of things, is of course the ruinous and unpatriotic policy pursued by Northern fanatics for many years past, on the subject of slavery, wnich, as might be expected, and as was always predicted, would create a counter feeling of equal intensity in the Souih towards the North ? The collision between the Northern and Southern sections of the confederacy, whirh such a course of conduct would naturally produce, has already been commenced, and hence the continued disorganization of that branch of the national legislature. Hut this is not the only cause of the present .... _/v \U.-L: a i ? nunciia siair m auairt* " a iik irw efficient cause ia the folljr, imbecility and nepotism. m hirh have characterized the cabinet f?r the |m-1 nine months.

The more wa saw of tha company, the more we were pleased with their unostentatious snd simple manners, their kind, easy and gentlrmsnly deportmeut. Of Kossuth, the Governor and all spoke in the highest terms. Governor Ujhazy was particularly intimate with him. It 1b difficult to oonjeoture what will bs the fata of Kossuth and his fallow refugees. That they are now prisoners in tirae of peace, and kept prisoners as Napoleon waa at St. Helena, by a nation that baa no right over the in. la undoubted. It ia to be hoped that the American government, Imitating the magnanimous conduct of the American people, and taking a lesson from them, will rend energetic remonstrances to Constantinople, with a chip of war, to bring home the prisoners We aay home, for where have tbe oppressed by political tyranny in Kurope a home but here in America?

THE YOl'NG ROSCIISES. The beautiful children of .Mr. Buteman, who with their parents are rejourning at tbe Alitor House, were introduced to the Hunguilitn company yesterday. Miss Apolonia especially war smitten with admiration at the little '-jewels," or bijoux, as she oalled them. We are informed they will give a representation before them at the a*tor House, previous to their departure for Philadelphia, hverybody is struck with and admires the talents of these lovely children. THE fiKW YORK COMMITTEE. The Committee of Citixen* of New York, whose deputation as ae reported in the Utrald of Monday last, met tbe Hungarian* on their arrival at the Astor H< u?e. and addressed them by Mr. Draper, their organ, met lat-t evening at 8 P M. at tbe Astor House It was the Intention to meet the Governor and bis friends, but their engagement for the opera prevented this ariangeuient. We understand the committee propose to organize several rub-committees for tbe purpose of ruitii'g by subscription a fund for the aid and relief of tbe other Hungarian refugees who are expected shortly to airive ou our shore". the opera. In the evening. sftrr ft day of some fati^uo and excitement, our dietlnguli-heu Hungarian guerts pro cetdid to the opera. having been invited to attend the benefit of Mademoiselle Borgheae. by Mr Borghece. her lather 1 be Governor himself, Miss Apolonia.

SERENADE TO THE 111 NQARIANS. I.a?t night, ftt 11 o clock. a fetr minutes after the Hungarian had return*d front the concert of Siglioiina llorghese, to which they had been invited, the German Liedertafel or Associated Band, waited on the diitiaguliihed exilei, to give them ft sertnude, and to welcome them to the ''land of the free, and the home of the brave This la ft dl<tinet bund from that which did them honor on Monday nlgbt, namely, thr band of the "Social Hetormna" 1 he v. terau governor, bis family, and the other patriots, with the brilliant Jagello, received the bard in the ladies' dn suing rofctn.

Mr. Hent?'N amx) the Caiuhet.?It appears lhat Mr. Clayton nnd his associates of th? cabinet, at Wellington, are endeavoring to conciliate Mr. lJcnton, of the Senate, for the furtherance of their own view*. Mr. llenton has thrown himself out of the party to which he belonged, by his free soil movements in Missouri, and has becom-. like Mr. Van ISuren, of Kindt-rhook, a mischief maker and a diforcanizer. The cabinet are accordingly trying to pick him up und use him, to serve their own end*, in the hope that lie will concur ia the new appointments that have been made since the installation of President Taylor, at their instigation. This is the second of the family that has been 'amperrd with in this way. Col. Fremont, Col. llenton's son-in-law, was approached, aud received from the cabinet the ollicc of Commissioner to run the boundary line between tlie? United Mutes and Mexico. The attempt, however, ha* failed, for Col. Fremont has declined the offer, and refused to have anything to do with it. A statement to that e fleet was published some time since ia the correspondence of the Herald, but its correctnes8 was denied by the administration organ*, and by the Ripublic at Washington, very emphaticallyj. This was the only statement of the IlrralA, o this rharacter, tint was denied ; but it is admitted now by even the administration organs. It is really humiliating to see the cabinet of such a man as General Taylor, who was elected to the presidency on the highest principles of patriotism, and with an enthusiasm rarely equalled, going out of its way? and endeavoring to conciliate free soilers of the South, for the purpose of confirming nominations. It shows the tone and temper of the cabinet, in which Mr. Ewing ia presiding spirit and Mr. Clayton his aid and assistant. F.ivritttva r.?*?

Mr. Maivgi m then amid, that according to the practice of the few years past, it bad been agreed upon by the two parties, that three members of each committee should be of the political majority of the Senate, and the remaining two of the minority. This arrangement. though dictated by the majority, and accepted by the minority as a matter of necessity, was probably as favorable an the minority could expect, and aveided the necessity of tedious balloting*. Ho therefore morel that Mr. King, of Alabama, be Chairman of the Committee of Foreign Relations Mr. Hale, of New Hampshire, objested to this coonehe did not desire to be factious, but he could not consent to any arrangemeat by which the two great parties arrogated the right to rotufe the recognition of any other party here. He recoguised neither of tbe great fattier, believing tbem botU to be treacherous in their policy; and not having beeu consulted in relation to the piopoted movement, knowing of it, he muse object. He could not consent to be over-ridden without making such weak resistance as be was capable of.
