MKI.ODEON - H wit? '? St r r**rm*?Bi.acr l.ifls Kiso ?w York., Tucidiy, January '4'J, ISM). Ot-caii Strain Navigation. ( ur readers will find, in another part of thii day's paper, a detailed account of the magnificent spectacle which was presented in this city yestrday, at the launching of the beautiful sleamshi[ Arctic, and also of two smaller steamships, the Boston and the New World, the latter of which it intended to ply on the California waters. The Arctic is the third of Mr. Collins's new line ol te&mships, which are intended to run between this city and Liverpool, and compete with the Cunard vessels for the carrying and passenger trade between those ports, which is becoming more exterfsive every year. Two of those beautiful vessels, the Atlantic and Pacific, are rapidly approaching completion, and are advertised to leave here for E.iverpool, the one on the sixth, aad ihe other on the twenty-seventh of April next. It may now be said that the I'nited States have fairly entered the lists of competition with the British in the matter of steamships. Since the aolution of the problem of ocean steam navigation ?a period of thirteen years?the British tiave excelled us, and have had no opposition of any 1111] ?nance to contend against. But a new face will soon be put ujon the matter. Instead of having the field to themselves, they will meet with a formidable rival in these new American steamships, and in others which will no doubt be built hereafter, as fast as the growing wants of our commerce will justify their construction. Already we have a fleet of steamships engaged in the California tiade, which, for speed, eleganca, symmetry, and covenience. will compare favorably with any in the English service; and the prospect is that before long we shall number as nuiny or more than there are under the English flag. The right spirit has been awakened in this matter, and in a few years it is almost certain that we shall be as far ahead of all ether nations in steamships, as we have heretofore been in sailing vessels. The determination to do m*. i. .. w... .,?,i ?ii ... ... Ty that determination into effect. Nor will we be content with establishing lines merely between this country and England. As soon as the great inter* oceanic canal shall have been completed, which will connect the Atlantic and Pacific, we shall avail ourselves of that great work, and, under the recent change in the navigation laws of England and the United States, establish lines Ot steamships between London and '"hina, and compete with Ergland for the trade of which she has for ages enjoyed a monopoly. We shall likewise establish lines that will embrace all of the West Indies. Already the English are becoming dissatis fied with their steamship arrangements in that quart* r, and admit that they will be of little use as soon as American competition has fairly com. nienced. This can be ?a?ily accomplished, and when it is effected, the great revolution in the commerce of the world, of which we now have a glimpse, Will be carried out. New York will the nceforih be the great centre of the commercial world?the seat of the moneyed |>ower, the metre polis of the world, and occupy the position towards the nations which London has heretofore held. Kuch is an indistinct glance at the commercial greatness in store for the United States, and of the boundless wealth and riches which will soon be with in our gr&sp. That brilliant destiny awaits us, unless this government should be severed and torn apart by the fanaticism which is now rampant in the land, threatening consequences that are dreadful to contemplate. Prbsipkmtial Movsmkmts.?These movements are beginning somewhat more vigorously than we could have expected, in various parts ol the country, and in favor of some names we have heretofore published, with others who are new candidates. Governor Lane, of Oregon, who was a distinguished officer in the Mexican war, has been nominated by a convention at Indiana, composed ol the democratic members of the Legislature of that State, and vigorous movements have been commenced there in his favor. As the first step, they re preparing a biography of the General, reciting his brilliant deeds in Mexico, in order to recommend him more effectually to the people. We also prrcrifr inai crniivr i?rnu?u nap jim urrn iiumi sled for the same high office, at a democratic meeting at St. Louis, Missouri In the midst of nil this activity of ('residential movements, Mr Clay ia not forgotten, but a movement seems to have been commenced, which is very general, in his favor. It has been begun chiefly in the shape of private correspondence and action, extending throughout the country, having lor its object to bring his name before the people for the Presidency, without he aid of conventions by the wings. Mr. Butler, of South Carolina, has, also, in a different section, gut forward the name of Gen J*cott, as having high claims upon the country, and a fine chance now before him of reaching the White House. All these movements, so early in the coming conteat. are indicative of the course of events. The mar era of the two parties, throughout the country, nre tired and worn out by the nominations made by conventions and caucuses, livery distinguished man will henceforth be put forward by his own ferial friends, and will be run in his own arc ion of the country, where each one for him-elf will endeavor to get as many votes as he can. Thus we shall have candidates all over the country, each different section setting up ita own man for itself. A scrub race seems certain, m spite of the lad icious appeal* of the Washington journals, about the value of keeping up " the national whig Party," or the ? national democratic party." National humbugs, rather? Tnu Triai or 1'ai rt .?The trial of this individual. on the charge of contriving a torpedo for (he destruction of Mr. Warner, was postponed yesterday, and haa been set down for to-day. This ia only tha beginning of a series of trials, in which tome very c urious developments on the tool-pigeon system may be expected to be mude. A number of indictments, embracing various individuals, some for attempts to kill, others to assassinate, ethers for forgery and frnud, have been found by the Grand Jury, and one even for an attempt to bribe Judge Edmonds himself, which will all shortly come on for trial. The firat of them, that of I miry, for tending the torpedo bbx o blow op the house of Mr Warner, may not be the most interesting of the batch, though it ia of great importance, both in a public and private point of view Aa much interest is felt by the public in these trials, we shall endeavor to give a full and accurate report of them, and of all the evidence which may come out. J | City Taxation? ting of tli? Millionaires. We mentioned, the other day, that William B. Aisior, unci a number of other millionaires in this city, had held a meeting, in one of the dark rooms ; in Wall street, for the purpose of passing resolui tions against the taxation bill now before the Le- | gislature in Albany?a bill sent there and prepared , by the Corporation. The character of the objections made by these wealthy gentlemen to the proposed new system of taxation, is well understood by those who have made inquiries into the subject, although the great mass of our citizens may be ignorant of the purposes of such a movement or of such a meeting. It is well known that the immense masses of personal property held by these and other wealthy men, entirely escaj>e taxation, while they enjoy all the benefits of protection atlorded by the city government, which is sujiported by the real of the community. Mr. Astor and the other millionaires j call themselves land owners. They do not oppose the taxation on real estate, but wish to prevent the passing, in the Legislature, of a law whereby all ow ners of jiersonal j>roperty would be liable t? taxation to an eijual extent with that of real estate ow ners. In fact and in truth, this movement of ! W. 11. Astor and his associates is to saddle a greater amount of taxation upon the working i .... c -l. ?.. u:t~ (. liibrt a UI MIC Lliy, n IIUC llirjr luimorivio ou<-uiu i remain exempt, as far as personal property is involved, from all participation in support of an exs pensive burden. t Tliere is an amount of about two hundred millions of personul property, in the shape of slocks, , capital, bonds and mortgagee, goods in stores, and in other forms, all of which is protected, and en, ,oys the benefits of our city government, but none . | of which, under the present law, pays any taxa\ lion at all, in requital for the protection such , ! property receives. The law now before the Legislature in Albany proposes to remove this ine ! quality, and to make the personal property of the rich man pay its share of taxation, as much as the small pittance of the poor man, who may have it 1 all invested in a little house, or other real estate.? Three years ago, the same clique of millionaires prevmted a law from passing in the Legislature? 1 a law which had for its purpose a similar equali' /action of taxation, and which we exacted then to pass, itut agents were hired by these wealthy i gentlemen, and sent to the Legislature in Albany, win re thty succeeded in frustrating the passage of the law. Agents will be hired again for the same purpose ; but we trust they will be defeated, and ho|>e that the great masses of small property holders of all kinds will take the matter at once in hand, and call to account every member of the Legislature in Albany, who will dare to injure the poor and benefit the rich, by preserving the existing inequalities in the system of city taxation. This movement of Mr. Astor and his associates in Wall street, we trust will be defeated. It is an impudent, atrocious and unjust movement to allow personal property to a large amount to escape taxation, and thus to ihrow entirely upon real estate, owned in part by the poorer orders of society, all the f xpenses of government in thisgreat city. Let the Legislature look to their votes. Tin Removals and Hi mh s at the Custom I Horsi.?We rather suspect that Mr. Maxwell would semetimrs prefer climbing over Salisbury i Craigs, near Cdinburg, in his kilt, bare legs, and I brogues, than to occupy the troublesome post of j Collector of the Custom House of New i'ork city, during these days of retrenchment, reform, rumpuses, rows, end what not. With tears in our eyes, I we find in a cotemporary, that, under directions ' from the Treasury liepartment, he has just made the following batch of removals from the Custom House, of persons, some of whom are whigs, but the greater portion loco-focos:?

WhaUy. .^ingultirly enough, in this list is Mr. Maxwell's ow n son ; but this we suppose is for Huncombe. It is well known that M. M. Noah, the editor of a Sunday newspaper of small circulation, and l.'obert O. White, a lounger and critic of the Opera House, , connected with some similar paper, besides others | now at Wathingtain, occupy sinecures at the Can! torn House of this c'ty; and yet we see no mention j made of the removal of such excrescences. Many I of the persons removed are able and competent men. Why, then, does Mr. Maxwdl retain those I who fill merely tinecurr places, anddismiss useful, good men t Ought he not to make a better selection for removal ? We are glad to nee, however, that real reform and retrenchment have commenced. We are persuaded, from information we ' have received, that all the business of the Custom House inipht le conducted for half the expense it ! has cost within the last few yearn; and that a selection of men i?-rlorming their duties like other men of business in the city, would, though it were half the present number, easily accomplish the whole routine ot this establishment. Many of Uie recent doings and removals in the Custom tlonae hare been perpetrated by the Collector and Secretary, in consequence of a pet with Confrere.

The Jew ahi> the Jewel*.?The petition presented by Mr. Sceley to Congress, respecting the robbery of the Prince of Orange'?jewels, in 1832, is causing some curious developments on the subject, and some funny contortions in certain quarters. M. M. Noah, then surveyor of this port, who fingered a large share of the prize money on that sccasion, has just published in an evening paper, the foils wing naire confession:? The circumstances which gave rise to this charge are as follows: ? While Surveyor of the port of New York, a large amount of valuable jewels were smuggled by a subject of the King of Holland, by the name of [Ylari. It became the duty of the Collector of the Port to seise the property for the infraction of the revenue luwe. which Mr. Swartwout did In pereon, as the muggier was kuown to be a man of desperate charac ter When the property seised was In the hands of government, it was discovered that the jewels had been stolen from the Princess of Orange, in Holland The I>utch Minister immediately applied to our government. to request that they might not be libelled or sold, as Ik usual in such cases, as the articles were stolen, and belonged to the family of his sovereign. The government eouhl entertain no question as to the ownerehlpof the property, which had been introduced in \ iolatton f the revenue laws; but out of courtesy to the King of Holland, would not proceed to libel them, and vouid surrender that portion of ihe forfeiture belonging to the 1'nlted Statae; but the government In doing this, could not compromise the rights of the seizing officers, which were protected by law. The minister, therefore proposed to value the jewels, and pay to the ft itiiig officers their portion, ?? it the articlet huil been actually n Id Tble wat done with the knowledge of government; end when the Collector made the J1 virion, hr sent me a chuk fm my ?/ air, with htt rteti/if hotk, which I signed. without halving known at the time (end Indeed et any time when the amount ot aelzurea war divided,; to what claaa of property it belonged. There was noooncealment in the burlnesi; the raizing officers had a right by law to their portion, without reference to who paid it. As to tho abduction of the culprit Polari. there Is no truth in the charge. The Duteb government wished to have him sent to Holland lor trial, more with the view of exculpating the Prince of Orange- suspected of having purloined the jewels hi nself- than to punish the offender; and he went with his own accord on board of a vessel, under charge of Mr. Benjamin flays, a pcllre eliicer. under some promise of the government that he should not be punished. What became of him I know not. And tbia is the entire version of the whole affeir; and I state it, that your readers may see the extent of the agency I had in the matter, and the maliguant character of the libel itself. M. M. NOAH. Hood ! This is honest for once?this is candid, at all events. There is no stale joke here, seeking to hide truth and fact?no affected jest, trying to cover up a bonne how he of $2,500. and over. He acknowledges the corn?" he sent me the check for my share." Now all this is very good?but poor old Noah, who lias for years not only abused me for living on black mail, as he calls it, but violated all the rules of decency by attacks on the females of my family, cannot help showing his malevolence in the midst of his stultification, lie calls upon the Grand Jury to indict ine for a libel against him?that libel being the simple statement of a fact which he acknowledges over his own name?the fact of receiving over $2,500 for his share of the reward of $10,000, which was offered and paid by the Dutch government for the recovery of Tk. tZ 1 T M Mr I.. L.. .... nirpr jcwcio. a iic uioiiu ui y 9 uuaei ins u?u tuir fcssions, will much more likely indict Mm for receiving money that he never earned, and that did net belong to him. He acknowledges that he had nothing to do in the recovery of the jewels. Why, then, did he take a part of the reward? The pretext set up, about an old law, is stud' and nonsense. The Grand Jury should indict him at once, on his own confession, and thus make him disgorge the money he got on the check. Mr. Seeley, now at Washington, was the person who arrested and ; held the robber, besides other services which he performed. He got nothing, while Noah got over ! $2,000.

Diplomatic Affair^, Ac. cil r special telegraphic correspondence. < Washington Citv, ) & Monday Evening, January 28, 1S50. } T

The resolution of General Foote, to-day, relating to the re-establishment of diplomatic intercourse with the Germanic confederation, is said to meet * the support of the entire Committee on Foreign *' Affairs. Mr. Clayton abolished this mission in order to reach Major Donelson without otfending the Senate. ^ The Austrian resolution of General Cass was e superseded by the fugitive slave bill. The amend al ment of Mr. Seward secured liirn another lecture from Genera! Foote, with which the Senate and the galleries were highly delighted. ^ In executive session, to-day, Col. Webb was up for a short time. We have no doubt of his rejec- 'j tion, except as to the day. It may be to-morrow. 0 Major Tochman received a letter from Europe this mcrning, informing him that publications were made m the newspapers ot Austria and Gallicia, that M. liodisco has actually been recalled. Tht heirs of Kosciusko were authorized to execute a power of attorney in Major Tochman's name, to recover Kosciusko's estate in Washington. This B shows that M. liodisco had no warrant for his in- u terference with M ajor Tochman. The report of the mint directors of the four mints r) of Philadelphia, New Orleans, , N. C., and a( Dahlonega, Geo., states that the whole amount ^ of precious metals received reached $14,609,4!13, of which $12,243,175 was in gold, and $2,3fi6,2S8 * in silver. The whole amount coined was $11,164,695, of which $9,007,761 were in gold, $2,114,950 * i in silver, Hnd $41,894 in copper coin. The numI ber of gold dollars coined is $930,789. The amount of California gold received at Pniladelphia [* was $5,481,439; at New Orleans, $066,080. In oj 1848, at Philadelphia. $44,177?total California gold received at all the mints, $6,253,288. It ap- li pears that, in 1847, the gold received at the mints cl amounted to within a fraction of $20,000,000, or B\ about $7,500,000 above last year's receipts, not j withstanding the importation from California. o; P. 8.?I learn, from good authority, that Mr. ^ liodif-co has been recalled from Washington by 1 the Emperor Nicholas. ec THIRTY-FIRST CONURJESS. first SESSION. washikotos, Jsn. 28,i860.

Pickett, editor of the Champion, was smothered to death and buried beneath the ruins, while attempting to save bis books. It is feared that several others have been killed by the falling walls, but it is, as yet. lmpoeeibie to ascertain the fact. The book* and paper* belonging to the Masonic Grand Lodge were consumed. Indeed, so rapid was the prepress of the flames, owing to the combustible nature of the materials, that not a thing was saved, and thn entire building, and its contents, now lie a heap o: ruins.
