The Y?ar IR4V and the Year 1850. I The year 18-19 has terminated, and is numbered with the past. It may not be amiss to tske a cur- I ory review of the history of the United States 1 during that period, and to cast a glance at our 1 prospectB for the year 1850. The Usk is the more i agreeable, ioamuich as, during the time we h<tve , mentioned, our m?rch to greatness h is been on- 1 ward, and the vista which opens before us promise" a still greater degree ot National, State, and individual prosperity. The year 1841) has been characterized by events of gigantic moment and importance. It has witnessed efforts for liberty in Europe, which, though unsuccessful, will form a brilliant page in the history of the world. Revolutions buve taken place that have shocked the whole of the old world to the centre. But they effected not the United States. We, removed from such scenes ?f trouble and excitement, were only interested spectators, wishing that success might crown the cause of liberty, and opening our arms to receive and protect the van quished, when it wss lost. While the musses of Europe were endeavoring to depose their kings and governors, we presented the extraordinary spectacle of a nation of twenty or twenty-five millions of people, conducting to the chair of government a chief executive, or ruler, who was elected by their own votes, to preside over the destinies of their country for the term , of lour years. Such a contrast will not be , without its influence. The moral effect of such a beautiful spectacle will strike deep into men's minds, and penetrate the recesses of despotism throughout the world. The year 1^9 wtllbecharac- 1 terised in after times as one of the most prosperous, , if not tne most prosperous, that we ever experienced. Commerce diffused its blessings among us ( in great profusion. Cotton, our principal Southern 'aple, was in active demand, and met a ready sale ( in foreign markets, at good prices?the receipts coming back to gladden the hearts of the planters, Rnd to be expended in a thousand ways, in active 1 industry at home. Domessic trade has been active ^ ?the currency never was on sounder or safer basis?emigration was on a larger scale than ever j ?the i>roduce of the teemine West came forth in abundance?he that sowed reape d the fruits of hisia- ( dustry?and joy, contentmcut and satisfaction reignedthroughout the length and breadth of the land. As if to impress apon us the necessity of looking beyond this world, and not to assume to ourselves too ^ much, the country has been visited by a scourge ( which claimed its victimi by the hundred and by the thousand, and left many a hearth desolate in its progress throughout the confederacy. It tracked { t>s to the far West and to the mines of California, as well as North and South, sparing neither raak nor station, age or sex, in its progress. Such was the year 1849?which is now numbered with the past. Within that time we have not only prospered amazingly, but have laid the foundation for a still grrnter pros|ierity for the coming year. What, then, are the prospects for the year 1H5Q? d From all appe?rsnces, trade and commerce will be even more extended, and more fruitful of blessings, than they w?re during 1849. The whole commerce of the word is abont to be rsvo- ^ lutiomzed, by opening communications between | ( the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, which will , make this country the cntrqtot of the trade of , the whole civilized world. There is but one n drawback to the prospect. During tha year 1:C0, a there will be a collision between Northern and a Southern fanaticism and ultraism, in the halls of 0 the national legislature. It cannot well be avoided; r lor it has been approaching lor several years, and 1 mutt be met. The slavery question is again about to become the engrossing topic in Congress, as it t has been in the political arena for years; but we # l ive full faith that the Vnion will survive the e shock, no matter how imi>etuous it maybe. We I ? C-innot, und we will not, believe that there is not i difluvd throughout the country sufficient pa. t triotism to overcome and swamp the ultras of t a.i>Ka* A* Iv?vtK ua< 11<111 nf lK?> rntinf rv u Kit KflVfi ....... ....... -* ?-"/? ?

Although yesterday was the last day of the veni 1849, it will be seen, by our telegraphic de* spatches from Washington, that Coagreaa was sot it le, but, as far, at least, as the House ol Representatives was concerned, transacted some very important proceedings. Not the least interesting of these movements are the appointment of standi a comm tteeB; the offering of a resolution calling 1 for all knowledge in the possession of the Exe- j cutive, relative to the late proceedings of the Britith in Central America; and a resolution that the Committee on Territories be instructed to report to the House a bill or bills, providing territorial governments (or all that pait of the territory ceded to the United States, lying eastward of the Si^rr4 NpvaHii. And nrohihilinnr tluvnrv thpr^in There was oiher important business transacted, hut what we have referred to is the most interesting at this time. We bhall comment upon tliem in our own way, at the proper time. It will be seen that the House have appointed their Committees on Ways and Means, the District of Columbia, the Judiciary, Territories, and For? ign Aflitirs. Our readers will find the names of the gentlemen composing those committees underneath, and we give, by way of informieg them of the action of the Senate, the naineB of the triemlir rs composing similar committees appointed by tTiat body several days ago. They are as follows:? Jttctrirt of rolnmMn?Messrs. James Mason, Ynlea, Miller Shield* ard Berrien Judiciary?Me?i<rs A. P. Butter, Downs, Berrien, Bradhorj and Daj ton. Territories? Meaars. I. A. Douglass, Butler, Underword. Houston and '"ooper. Koielgn Affaire? M*??rs W. R. King, Foot#, Webster. Benton and Mangum. Mr Savage's resolution, calling for information concerning British aggressions in Central America, is a very important movement, and so is Mr. Hoot's, in regHtd to the new territories. By the Isttcr it would seem that the great discussion on the Wilmot proviso question is near at hand, and will occupy the attention of Congress at an early day. Highly Interesting from Washington. THE COMMITTEES IN THE HOUSE. Important MoTcments Relative to Central America* APPOINTMBVTf, dcc. See. dee. oum 8j-xcial TlLXO*ArHlC corxkspoifdkhoc. Washington Citt, ) Monday Niuht, I>c. 31, 1849. j Tke South, upon the House committeea, as in the Senate, have the chairmen on the slavery question. In the House this is rather a compliment than a real advantage, a* the committees nriuet obey instructions; aud from the proceedings [>f to-day, Mr. Boyd may expect instructions to bring in a bill for territories, including the proviso. Mr. Bayly, the chairman oa the Committee of Ways and Means, is a free trade Calhoun man. rhis is a bad prospect for a high tariff report. Mr. McLane, of Md., the chairman of the Committee on Commerce, la a democrat of the Baltimore platform. The Missouri resolutions are held over in the Senate till Thursday next. Mr. Benton is expect d to renew the war upon Mr. Calhoun, when hey are presented. It is rumored that the whigs have been debating he policy of cutting loose from the cabinet. Mr. Seward will push the slavery issue to an explosion, if possible. We understand that special instructions are to >e cent to Mr. Squier, on the Nicaragua business. We apprehend that Mr. Clayton will give up the Itland ofTigre. H. B. Maxwell, of Prnn , ia teadered the conlulate to Trieste. Tha free-aoilera, having a man on each of the .omniiitees on slavery, are satisfied. The whigs ire not pleased with the Chairman on Foreign fcflitirr, wliase appointment thfy attribute entirely o his conservative view? on slavery. The New York appointments will probably be ent to the Senate within a few days. That of X. Wrbb will probably be held buck, pending he resolution of Grn. Cass.
