Telegi njililr Summary. !n the Senate, the hours devoted to the public service were not very j>rofitably used?though this ie no uncomnu n fact. The Compromise bill of Mr. CUy came up, and Mr. Foote having moved an amendment to Mr. Hale's amendment of the preceding day, with respect to the formation of two States out of California, the Senate adopted, by a ote of thirty-three to live, "that California shal| be admitted with er without slavery, as her people Biay^elect." In the House of Representatives, the whole day was passed in a discussion u|>on mc new cnarge brought against the Secretary of tl?e Treasury, by Mr. Sweetzer, for using and appropriating a large sum of money from the surplus fund. The record of the discussion is highly interesting. The cabinet occupy a vast deal of the public time at Washington, and not without reason. We have no' seti led the first piece of Galphinism, and yet we have another thrust forth to perplex the country. On the twenty-seventh of June, lt>47, under Mr. Polk's administration, one hundred and fifty-two thousand dollars were transferred from the contingent fund ef unexpended balances, to the national treasury. In December, 1S49, the present cabinet did take from the treasury this amount, and re-appropriated it, without any sanction of legality. This is a serious charge, and, with other circanastances, cannet he overlooked. When it comes up again, we hope it will be treated with becoming decorum, ia accordance with the importance of the subject. The public are alive to the corruption in high place* at Washington, and desire thorough investigations. We shall have a beautiful financial history of tha present cabinet one of these days Haytl and Dominica?'What Is to be dona? We received, recently, a letter from Ilayti, published in the Herald of the 17th instant, which contained very important intelligence from St. Domingo. This island is fast becoming an object of magaitude to foreign powers, and is still more interesting to the people of this Union. By that correspondence, we were first put in possession of the startling facts, that both England and France have been secretly moving in the afTairs of this eland. It is the agents of these |>owers that have put that black scoundrel, Soulouque, now Faustin 1, up ta the idea of Itecoming a despotic monarch. with the style md title of " hmperor." They hare till other nod deejwr designs, which are only recently beginning to develope themselves. Kn*Und has a secret agent in llayti, a Sir Hubert Sham( ours, or Himr such name, who in tampering with both the black und the white races; and, by costly presents, is endeavoring to coax the whites to sub. Biit to the blacks, and acknowledge Faustin a* emperor of the whole island. Thus f ir, in thia regard, f*ir Kobert Shambourg, the Knglish secret gent alluded to, has had no success. Santana, the military chief of the Dominicans, would not listen to the proposition for an instant. The Kuropeun |?wer? are anxious, not only that Faustin 1. thould become sole em|>eror of St. Do. imiigo, but they nr? urgiug him, through their age uts, to conquer, acquire, or subjugate, all the West India inlands, by forming alliances with the negtoes, and inciting them to a general insurrection in every island, w Inch would be tantamount to a general massacre of all the of white rnce. This is the I at-1 and the greatest stroke of Uuropean diplomacy. Th?y view with alarm our rapid increase by accretii ji on this continent, and they are fearfully alarmed in reference to the i?l uidaol the Caribbean Sea If they can muke Kaustm, and hia 11 aytien empire, the nucleus of a still greater empire, comprising all the islands, they will have gained a success which will eveutuiily embarrass, if not destroy the Southern Stales and their institution*. These governments look with dismay at the progrefa of this country, ?nJ the ty r.innical courts of Lurope are now filled with jay at the prospect of a separation of the South from the North, and indirrctly they are doing all in their power, by secret agents, to increase the difficulty, and widen the breach between the twosectiona. They know that if this taken place. Iil?etty, freedom, and a government of the people are things of the past in American history, and that anarchy, civil war, an I carnage, would take their places, until the people would ahout with rapture at the advent of any hief, whom they believed h *d power to protect, i matter how bloody and unjust a tyrant he might he or become. The downfall of hlierty here would enable Kuropean tyrant* to cm*h it under their feet, in the old world, for the next century. Kngland, and ih<- other powers of Lurope that look with a jealoua eye at our progrean. now nee our weak point?the designs of the factions in the North to crush the .South, and her institutions They are willing to aid the abolitionist* nnd free soilrrs, to an ei cnt these people do not dream of. Hence the course that is now being pa railed by the sccret agents of these guvernme its in llayti. If they can in< ite a general uprising of the blacks in the West Indies, and the formation of on* rful negro empire, or a dozen smaller govern* merits under one imperial head, they know that the .South would find a deadly and a powerful enemy in a class of negroes, win h its been fought, tr< in their childhood,u? detest and hate American*.

The true policy of the United Statea is, %t once, to take the initiatory in this matter, by reeosm/iog the Hepnblic of Dominica, and sending them a minister. The vessel of war that carries him oaf, should remain in one of the Dominican hartxra to protect the American * migrant* that will, douMiew, ponr into the rich valleys of Dominica the coming fall and * inter. There is great danger in delay. A quarter of a million of whites may he maaaacred by the ferocious negroes of Mayti, unless a fraternal and Acridly hnnd is riiendid to them by our government The sympathiea af the miaao* of the Amert an people are with(he apparently helpless and devo- 1 ad white race of St. Domingo, who havt bottled tike brave fellow*, as they are, for more than six years, against ten times their number of bruUl negroes. We have bo donbt that meetings on this subject will be held in the South, from Norfolk to New Orleans, as fan as the news spreads of the critical situation of the whites, and the ultimate design* of the blacks of St Domingo. Why should not meetings be called in this city at once, to take up a question so vital to thousands of onr white brethren 1 There are plenty of brave and gallant spirits in our midst, who would be welcomed in that beautiful portion of St. Domingo belonging to the republic of Domimeo. There is no law to prevent such emigration?there is room in St. Domingo for a hundred thousand agriculturists?and emigrants can go us fast as they pleasa to Do.ninica, and for any purpose whatever. The empire of llayti has no political existence with us. We do not recognise her, nor her government or her pco. pie, any more than we recognise the ourang and monkey chiefs, and their tribes of chatterers, at Sumatra or Borneo. This is a most important subject to the American people ; and, as we have little or no faith in a cabinet composed mainly of avowed abolitionists, we trust C'ongiess will at once take up the matter. let one or mic oilier uouee cull lor nil tne papers, I reports of secret agent*, their instructions, the j letters of Secretaries of States to the French ami Spanish ministers, in relation to this topic?their replies? the memorials and petitions of the people of Dominica, and the letters of the minister they sent to our government in 1841, which can be found on file in the State Department, placed there when Mr. Calhoun was Secretary of Stats, including those that have been added under Secretaries Buchanan and Clayton. Congress will then be in possession of all the facts, and we feel assured that i they will at once, after reading all these papers^ t.ike instant measures for the acknowledgement and preservation of the republic of Dominica. Foreign Claims on Portugal and Hayti.?The cfainiin, Chickasaw and other Domestic Claims. ?We have received advices, that Mr. Clayton and the Portuguese minister are at loggerheads, and that it is not at all improbable, but that the latter may speedily be furnished with his passport, and that the President may he induced to send in a war message, in reference to jioor, broken-down Portugal. What is it all about? will be asked by thousands of the American people. It is all about little or nothing. The AmericinGovcrnment are claiming s? me $40 or |50,000 from the Portuguese, for the destruction of u privateer named the General Armstrong, and that is about all. i> .~ .i. _ 1* n ? t)-:*-:- ..... i it-* iuub iu mr iciir vs ai wnu vjirai dukiiii, bt?cral eminent merchants in (his country, made contracts to supply the allied armies in the Peninsula with (lour, and other American provisisions, and, in accordance with such contracts, many American ships, with cargoes, were despatched to Lisbon. Shortly after, and while these vessels were lyint; in Lisbon, the news that war had been declared by the United States against England, reached Portugal, when these American shi|?, and cargoes, were seized und confiscated. After the peace of 1815, negociations were commenced, to recover these cluims, which amounted to hundreds of thousands of dollars, and we believe that Portugal paid every claim against her, in full. Thirty-five years later, an American cabinet are found, who are stark, staring mad on the subject of claims, and some of the members of this cabinet, having made their own fortunes out of Galphin, Chickasaw, La Francis, and other domestic claims, and caused great excitement among the masses, by the unblushing manner in which they (the cabinet) have combined to swindle the government, and plunder the public treasury to enrich themselves and their friends, are now endeavoring to direet public attention and disgust from themselves, and the Galphin and other domestic claims, to small foreign powers and foreign claims. Mr. Clayton becomes very patriotic and very belligerent. He knows that all our just claims sgainst Portugal were promptly paid for the S]<olmtion6 committed in 1814, and yet he rakes up this (?0,000 doubtful claim, w hich was incurred at the same time, by the destruction of a hulf privateer, and [>rnt>ahly half |>iratioal vca*cl the Urnrul Armstrong! What folly! What absurdity! Whit humbug! At the same time that Mr. Clayton is pushing this small Portuguese affair, ? the verge of a war between the two countries, there is the Iiaytien | Empire of negroes, with its Mack scoundrel of an emperor, who owes to our citizens, for the most j tyrannical robberies and confiscations of American property, a aum amounting to nearly one and a half millions of dollars Here is an amount worth talking al?<ut, and claims founded in justice which have been long neglected. Now, let Mr. Clayton ' [>re|*re a message lor General Taylor to be aent to Ccngress, with the facta relating to Hayti. and ask for power and a|>proprii?tions to bring the negro scamp and his empire to ??s proper bearings. Such a request would be promptly complied with by Congress. Then let the administration despatch a niHicient naval force to collect this million and a half of dollars fiorn the llaytiens, or bring back j the emperor and Mi court as security. Probably un arr<tngement could !>e made wiih Darnum, of the Museum, to assume the debt, and pay the American claimants ; he having the privilege of exhibiting the ini|>erial black chap and hi* court through, out the lTnion, and afterwards to sell them ia the South lo the cotton planters. We have no doubt that Faurtin I. would draw as large an audience as Jenny Lind. Here is a chance for our friend Mr. I Clayton to do an act which will amount to something, and he will get the credit of it. There is no credit to be gained by a war with di-^irited I'ortupnl, for a claim of |40 or ?50,U00 and that even a | very doubtful one. We advise Mr. Clayton to go home to his dwel i ling to-morrow rvmine, afler he ha* read the ' IU' aM carefully at the Slate iK ^aitmcat as it hi* utual cumin?aend Mark Tom over to Butler'a for a (ration piichrr i f old ale, and while the Secretaiy ia hpi>iuk it, lie can retlect aoberly upon our proportion, and we feel avured that he will adopt it Ml once, and then our a&xioua community will aee an opening to St. lHxnwifq, and we ahall hare no war with Portugal, which would be very likely to involva ua in a war with other European power* before we got out of it.

Willis has made a perverted statement of the affair of Monday evening, the 17th iustant. which resulted in the severe castigation inflicted upon hioi by Mr. Forrest. In this statement I am reltrred to in a manner which requires a public correction :?After i dinner, on the 17th, I walked out with Mr. Forrest and another friend. As is our common practise. wo ' strolled into the Washington I'arade Ground, a publio and tavorite resort. After walking about, some til (feu , minutes or more. Mr Willis was observed coming up { the walk from the southwest corner of the square. ; klr. Forrest immediately left us without saying a word, and moved from the gravel walk upon the raised i ! part above, and allowed Willis to approach, when he (Forrest) stepped quickly In trout tnot behind, aa j falsely stated by Mr. WiUis) of him trou tour to six feet, and stopped, looking him steadily in tbe eye; and shaking his tut in Willis ftse. made use of < ! some expression which I could not hear, from tha | distanae where 1 stood W tin* made a movement with his hand towards hi* breast, as it to draw a | weapon, when Forrest promptly knocked him duwa with his fist, took away his caue. placed his toot upon his neck, and laid upon his person with a whip or cane at least twenty blows over his back, shoulders and legs, applied with rapidity and vigor Many attempted to iiiteifere; but Mr.Forrest proclaimed, in a loud tone of voice: 'Gentlemen, this is the seducer of my wife; do not interfere;''and imm< diately all interference was withdrawn, until the arrival of the police officers ? Willis, in the meanwhile, screamirg and exclaiming ' help, help,'' ' save me. save me." ' police, police, take him off.'' Forrest was finally removed by the officers, and walked to tbe police office, lie there stated, as well to the magistrate as to Willis : "I did this act;" " I told you, t*lr, (to Willis) the la<t time we met. that It ever you attempted sgain to interfere with my domestic affairs. I would hold you personally responsible. and 1 have done .o," Tken. turning to the magistrate. be said: " This i* the seducer of my wife, and f?r that reason I have chastised him which WiUis did not deny. They were then both hound over to keep the peace, Mr Forrest being greeted with cheer*, altar leaving the office, by the assembled crowd This is a < , plain stati ment of the ease, as it actually occurred, j The reporter of the Trtkvne. as well as Mr. Willi*, most unfairly attempts to create the impressioa that 1 was ; close to Willis whin Forrest attacked him and that some one beside Mr F struck him That is unqualifiedly false. I was not within one hundred and fifty feet 1 of the parties when the affray eommenced; nor did I 1 tter one word, or do any act, but look on. until the ! parties were both in tbe pollen office, and then only to 1 correct Mr. Willis's miaatatemcnl*. as It seem* he cannot open his mouth, or pat pen to paper, without a total disregard to truth.

We have lived too long ia the world, and en. countered too many heroes of all kiads, to be much afraid of anything in the shape of man, wo* man, or devil. Besides, we should suppose that j N. P. Willis has had " cudgelling" enough for the prevent, in a legitimate and substantial form ; and accordingly, we set down all this exhibition of feeling to lite influence of the " Rochester knocking*," under their new and improved phase, which ought to be taken up again by the Kev. Mr. Griawold and his twelve apostles, for philosophical analysis. In no particular, whatever, shall we do injustice either to Mr. Forrest or to Mr. Willis; | and as to fear or intimidation by threats, from any 1 quarter, we never knew it, and (hiss it by as the idle wind. It is a much graver matter than " Rochester knocking*," or personal assaults, that has tern forced m?on the public attention. Let us return to that. In w hatever view we look at the matter, there are point* which present the same aspect on every vide. It is perfectly well known that Mr. Forrest lived in harmony and attection with hi* beautiful and accomplished wife, for many years. Ilia own nature appears to have been, for a very long period, free from any ungenerous suspicion; and blessed beyond the ordinary lot of professional men, he was about to retire from the world to enjoy those simple habits of life which were in consonance with his taste and education. He, no doubt, believed ' that in the retirement of the couatry, many more years of connubial affection would contribute to the happiness of himself and wife. At the very period, however, of anticipations so gratifying to his hti?ction Hnd ambition, the presence of spoilers s< ured the whole cup of the future. During his ah- , sencr on his (irofcssional tour* to various p.irts of the countty, his house seems to have become the I raravant-ary of a numberof individuals, who, to say the least, were flee to make it such on these occasions, though they would not have dared to do so *hen the master of the household w*a at home.? They ste his bread?drank his wine?lounged on his sofas?reposed on his pillows, and took que*> Unliable lilterties with the wife ofhis bosom. This treatment did not, and cauld not, square with any plain republican's ideas of propriety, or of gentlemanly liehavior. It was the result of a gross levity of manner, foreign to any gentleman's mind not corrupted by the socialistic follies and freedoms *hirlimark the conduct of csrtain fannliea in Kurope, and of which Lady Blessin jton and Count D'? >rsny were once the centre. It was conduct that even the most con Ming and unsuspicious man of tke old school of politejieas and hospitality, could oaly look upon with surprise, and was well calculated to arouse snspicioas that a mask concealed the real feelings ol the heart. Itoubt, once sug. ftestn>l, b ads to scniuny; and Mr. Forrest seems to hsve teen very watchful, though s!?w in his decisions. His forbearance waa remarkable?and when, ct last, he did strive to protect his honor, and (< mnenred seeking a remedy fur his uneasiness, Mr. Willis made a reply to the charges %:rin?t his associstes of the modern socialistic ol ol n?orals and m?niiew; but neither defended r.?* esj 'sinal his own share in the curious transactions st Mr. -Forrest's residence, or contented himself ? nh disa&using Mr. Forrest's mind of the suapiri< ns vthich'kad unfortunately tortured k. On the OoMrsry, Mt Willis attacked the simple and anc;t? ntalicus habits of Mr. Forrest, and added fael to the /!Mir?^~v:gravating, we fear, symptoms alrrsty sufl*i?ntly wnder snd etcitable. 1 l.e re Mill * no oili?r than might fw Hnt.< ipatrd. f-iur^ with the Ion of tfcone ?fT? ctiona which wero vr.ce ih? pilUra i>f hia pride, Mr. Forreet, with thoiij htlrM ha Me and<|Mil?wtliWaagacify.yet with * natural in>| ulae, iought to |**iah, or at (be Iraal to indicate bia di*f?>aiti<>fi toward# Mr. Willie, to wlxie moral* and mannerr. to w.Vse teaching* *nH acquaintance, he attributed. in an alight dogi*r, hia rfomeatie nnhappinm.

Having reviewed, with all possible candor, the origin of this usault, which we can only palliate, and not justify, we gather a moral from the history. The parties to whom Mr. Forrest BeeoM indebted for hiB untortunaf position, are persons who seem to have modelled their habits and practices on those of the tnaurm$ ton known to Euro pean tociety, of which Lady Blessington was the head, and coteries of which are well known in London and on the European continent. Fashionable socialism, literarv socialism, moral socialism, are the foundations of such phases of life?and they are totally opposed to those practical, senkible, refined and moral views of society which belong to the true republican elegance and simplicity of manner generally ruling society in the United States. eeive already the mischief that the introduction of such foreign follies has accomplished, and it is a warning to society. Nothing can repair Mr. Forrest's loss ; but the community may gain much by its painful and uufortunute hiitory. , The Nashville Cohvention amd the Nojith.? After a sefrsion of nine days, the Nashville Convention adjourned, to meet in six weeks after CtngieFs shall adjourn. While Congress has done nettling, the Nashville Convention has done a great deal, that begins to tell everywhere, and particularly here at the North. All the politicians are in a quake. They have been fretting and fuming for nine days, and now they are in the very dog-days of politics, and have become quite rabid. At first they predicted a failure of the convention to accomplish any end of importance. Now, they see that tremendous results are coming out of the discreet and sensible movements ut Nashville. Perfectly aware that the majority of the people, here at the North, h*ve no animosities to entertain against the South, and j that the chivalrous South ate much more likely to deal patriotically with a balance of power in their hands than the North, the people do not care about sacrificing the country upon the great question, to aid ragged politicians and fellow* struggling for place. They will go in for the Missouri line to the Pacific. If there is any doubt ok this l>oint, let the wire-pullers at the North wait and

see. If a complete revolution does not come out of this movement at Nashville, nothing will come out cf any political caucus. The very moment that Congress adjourns, the loss of the whole session will be realized by the people, and they will undertake the settlement of the slavery question, by an agitation for the election of 1K?2. A new broom, in the shape of a new and powerful party, will sweep away all the rottenness and corruption which now jeopardize the health of the country, and a new organization will give freshness and efficiency to the government. The probabilities are, as Eoon as the Nashville Convention re-assembles, that we shall have the outlines of a great political agitation marked out. This will be a commencement. Speedily will follow evsry othsr requisite. Nsw journals will spring up to give the opinions of the public mind. Political hacks will be sent t* Coventry, and the country will take a new position, under an enlightened public sentimsnt, which will not be seriously druibed for a quarter of a century. This will be a just retribution apon the Miserable tricksters who have shown themselves unable to 1 a (vial f fnr f It < sutAnlo Postage Reform.?Rowland Hills' important movement in England, in bringing about cheap postage, has proved a great bleaaing to the people, and the government revenue from the post office, in that country, haa increased. Our government seem to be very slow in entertaining proper views of this subject, and every attempt to get a reduction of our heavy rate*, seems attended with more difficulty than getting a Galphin claim allowed. Postal reform is much needed. The facilities for travelling and transporting the mai's have been much improved and increased within a few years, and it is only a reasonable demand of the people that I there should be a considerable reduction in postage , rates. They are much too high. The experience 1 of the British post office furnishes u* with all the results that tan be required to justify a reform. The extent of our country does not change the nature of the question in the least. Under a reduced postage tax, we should have a larger revenue. Let the reform be decided upon. Coixcctor or New You.?We really hope that the Senate, at Washington, will take up Mr. Maxwell's case at once, and either confirm or reject him, and put that respectable gentleman out of further pain.
