The Report of the Secretary of the Treasury ia ready, ami would have been delivered on Saturday U?t, if both houses of Congress had been in n It will be handed in to-day, und we are im boi^H cl being able to place it before our readers lo rn' rrow nxmirjj. Pumt Ian of the Administration I'nlon Plat. ftiin ?llie I'r?hl(li'iit umi Ih U ItiK Party. Oor intelligence from \Vrar.hin2t??ri, both public mi private, advise us of an effort of Senator Seward and his party to effect a treaty of peace with the President, to enable them to keep their ftiei ds in oftice at the North, and for a variety of ether reasons. We are told that h* has already had several interview s with Mr. Fillmore on the aubjert, atnl 'liat the friend? of the Union are not at all pleasi d with the movement. We would ad vi.-e Mr. Fillmore to beware of forming any alliance with those demagogues, lie now stands ? a highly favorable position before the cointiy His first annual message to Congress has commended itaeIf to the approbation of th^ conservatives of all parties. Tha decided stand taken by ihe Executive in favor of the slivery adjustment, as it stands, has enlarged the confidence of the people in behalf of his administration; has strengthened the conservatives in Congress; and, among whigs and democrats, throughout the country, lias operated to identify the administration with the integrity of the Uaioa. Never wes the country in a mora interesting crisis khan the present?and never was any President in a more advantageous position for rallying to his support ihe grtat b?dy of m people, of all parties, tJian is Mr. Fillmore His plain and undisguised recommendations in respect to the Fugitive act, oat cnly assure the country of his fidelity to the laws, buf of his desire to conciliate the South, by refusing the slightest concession to Northern nallitiers. Mr. Fillmore Mands upon the Union platform The old lines of demarcation between the old partie* are nearly obliterated; the general recommendations of the menage may be adopted by either party, without matt-rial violation of their party doctrines. The only party with which the message Minifies the President, is the Union party; an 1 his tB(A|r>ni*ni to nnll?f??ria r??i Uf h*onl?' party hostility which he has indicated. A* far as an be judged. General Caaa and General Koote are scarcely to be regarded as leas the friends of the administration thin Mr. CUy or Mr. Webster. The exigency is the integrity or disruption of th? republic. The President, comiug into power under the distrust of a large section of the Union, and generally regarded as the mere lm ?m ttntni of the White Hou*e, by the whig party itself, had very Kttle to excite his ambition, except the good withe* of the people. A nodrst man?a capable man? but too kind and amiable for the cut and thrust, right and left policy of Jackson; too honest tor the wire in and wire out" diplomacy of Van Buren; too dignified for the bartering system of John Tyler; too experienced to be indulged in the mistake* of the heroic lieneral Taylor?while Mr Fillmore waa eipected to administer the government with discretion, no party?no fragment of a parly?held him qualified to act the preaidential pariy leader. He came into the executive chair aa its imre occupant, by common consent, fur the remainder of General Taylor's term. The whign did not even (latter him with the |>oMibility of anything more. He waa given to understand, by movtments for Scott, Clay, Webster, Crittenden, and other*, that anything more ??aa entirely out f the question. Meantime, he waa expected faithfully to divide out the loavea and finite* among the whiga? for, whether they were Union men, or nullifiers, or aeceasionists, what was that to hitul To keep the party together, he nsust conciliate all the cliques:?the whig* must have the offices, and he must have their support. While, therefore, the whigs are under no obligation* to him. Mr. Fillmore is bound to look to their Interests?and no thinks to him. Parties, however, like men, are bnt the creature* f circumstances. The slavery adjustment, in it* breaking up of the old whig and democratic partoe*, ha* given u* four parties instead of two?the Union whig*, the Union democrat*, the Northern nlhfiers? chiefly from the whig party?and the Southern seceder*, chiefly from the democratic. The whiff puny proper, as it now stands. ic hut fr-tgm'nt?a \ery *01*11 frafment?of the whi( party of 1*4H It > already throws out of the last hope of either houne, and haa ao possible prospect, f itself, of being either able to advance or to iajure th* adai.mstratioa. And it so hifpene, that in the present state of tfciaga, there is more affinity between ' nion whiffs and democrata, taan there can be between Uaton whiffa and whiff aollitiers The circumstances creating this diviaton of parties, have placed Mr. Fillmore in the most favorable position Staadug ont boldly fur th?- Fugitive Isw, ss the test of Northern honesty and th*' vitality ot the coosutntion, the nulliliera, prima fanr, became his enemies; the I'aion men of hoth the old partiea became his supporters. He is thna reir forced ten fold the eiteat of his loss, and in tendered completely independent of nulliKcatioa <mp| nrt 1a Congress and in the States, A succession of accidents, tf you please, hts placed the President in this attitude before th ova try. But the wisest exercise of stgacity and foresight could not have pat him in a better position Any otlitr would have been untenable This is tirn.i and sure footing Practice, it appears. ' is following up this l eory We understand th it the President ha rrttn'Iy addressed a letter to Hiram Krtcham, or cher Union whig of this city, alluding to email removals Irom office,of Seward nullitirrs, in the interior of this Mate, and that the e??cutive has declaied in this communication his rrsolution to regard t.'<e nulliliera as his political eaemtes.snd the Union i.i?n as hia politioal friends A practical movrvent o?" this hind is all that is ' needed to confirm the posit ** of the administratis. I'ollowrd up,it will soo i operate to reorganise a aew party?a great Union pmy?f>a the basis of the admiaisttation. Pnrh a* organization, it is unaeceasary to argue, would place Mr. Fillmore ia a vnv prominent attitude with respect to the cam paign ol '52. The Uaioa pUUoruj aiopc, cau ac complish a successful administration, and cin alone enter iaio the field with the lightest prospect of defeating all sectional combinations,either before the people, or ia the Houae of Kepreaeotativea. The administration hua? foothold ia depending upon the duilocfited whig party?it hat the (irmdal footing in the Union party, North and South. That party haa got to be organized; but the elements of Northern nullification and Southern secession clfbrly iudicate it* necessity. Ami whatever may be ihe r?eult to ['residential candidates, ' he platform of the administration, thus far, commends itself to ihe oountry. Mr Fillmore may be assured that he, or his Euiiiiuibimuun, < m gain nomiug ?y an alliance with Seward or his tribe of higher law politicians. Under the re-action which took place in public opinion during the recess of Congress, their influence has dwindled down to nothing, and in attempting to coalesce with his administration, they are only trying to grasp at soiuethiug to keep them from t-inkuig. The better way would be to let th? m slide into oblivion?a fate which they well deserve, and which they seem to have courted. The Papulation and Utowth of the City of Hew orComparison with other Cities. By the statement we published on the 12th uist., it appears that the population of this city, according to the census of I Hoi), just taken, (which miy be slightly varied by the otficiil returns,) is 517,849 The cen6U* of 18-10 made the population of the cny, ut ihat time, 812,832; but there was an erior in the return of about 9,000 in the Tenth ward, which would have reduced the total of the | city to less th$n 304,000. The actual increase of the ei?y, therefore, in the last ten ) ears, is about ' 21-I.GCO, or over six y per cent?an immense in1 create on to large a population. The increuse J of the city of London and suburbs, in the ten )ears from Iftil to 1&4I, was a little over twenty | per cent. | For the purpose of comparison, we give the po;>ui latum of ihe principal European capitals and com1 mercial cities, by which it will be seen that New York, without including Brooklyn,\c., outnumbers all thr cities of Europe, except two or three, viz: London, Paris, and perhaps Constantino.>le. With regard to ihe latter?the capital of the Turkiah empire? the lumber of its inhabitants is probably overran d?there being no other authority than vague estimates, which vary from 300,000 to 600,COO.

The KIh, PragTMi, and Destiny o'tlM Sandwich Island*. The arrivals from California now hrinr ? , also, more rapidly than at any fopner period, sewa from the growing and /iouruhing kingdom of Kime- hanteha, who holds his court with til the form** lity of a European monarch, in his palace at Honolulu. Our columns present extracts from two jou* nals?the Honohiht T?mfs and the Poli/futtan ? the former hein? the organ of the extreme liberal t party, and the latter the official journal of the government. The Timet, however, does not demand anything from the king that can he construed us exigent. MB onjrci appears in iir i-j ihiihiii an 111treuse of liberal measures on the part of the king's (tally, which may tend to advance the general prosperity of the territory and inhabitants, both native and foreign, of Hawaii. To thia end, we find it urging (he government to adopt such wholesome reforms, and such lines of policy, aa may encourage emigration, and permit foreigners to share in the formatioa of the local rulers and of the lswigenerally. The Polyntuun does not oppose any plainly judicious movement, but is conservative in its character, and claims, with no little justice, that the improvements made in the laws, and in the extension of the franchise, together with other important public acts, are all satisfactory proofs of the deMre of the kirg ta bless the people at large, and to ijftcreaae the importance of that kingdom, which i4 now beginning to take a high position among civilized nations. When Cspt. Cook, the celebraied navigator, discovered the Sandwich Islands, he found them occupied by a barbarous but a cheerful and contented j>eople. The spirit of American misxians herniiii* unimhtnf hv the accounts viven hv the navigators; and, about (hirty years finer, the JV/Iitiutiuty Herald, published montLly in Bostoa, bo gan to give us records of the first stejM of the islanders from the barbarian to the civilized state. The monthly concert of prayer, in Presbyterian chmcbea, has been uniformly devoted to the progress of the Lord's wotk in that region. Thus the public have been made acqniiaied with the prcgreta of religion and of education, colored af'er i I the faibion of missionary writers, but still suffice nrty clear for the judicious reader to form a cor- J rect estimate of the real progress of this interest- | ing people, la the early stapes of that society, j thi n passing by a transition state, into a hurried ! contact with the civilized world, the first result | was, as u?ual, a haud-in-hand race between vice : : and religion. As churches increased, hospitals 1 I were needed. As the school house inducted the I youth of both sexes into ttie decencies of civilized i i life, it carried them through the inevitable gutei way of debauchery and folly, as a probationary ordeal cf a pa?s?ge from a state of nature to that of art. The whalethip* of Nantucket and New Knelend generally furnished many a guide to the simple islander?, and, accordingly, at one |>eriod of ! the history of these islands, the hearts of the misacnariea almost sank within them at that very natural condition of soeirty which could not but I be exhibited under all similar circumstances. The mercantile pioneer? the pedlar and the supercargo?are the true inisrionariea of civilization. Thtie nitn prepare th* path for the commercial irian, whose enterprise will convert en idle into a busy population, and who will teach men thit the true woy to lighten labor is to love it. Aa soon aa the Sandwich Islands became important, in a commercial point of view, the funeral moral prosperity l>epan to keep pace with the commercial propter; and now we find that the American missionaries are congratulating themselves for having established in the Sandwich Islands aa excellent a government as that which the English niit-sitnaries hoait as the product of their labors in the Society Islands. The spiritual domination of these two brilliant island clusters of the Pacific are divided between the clergy of the United States ard of England, and both groups hare derived much temporal advantage frein the earnest labors of the res| ectiv* missions. It is, however, to the ""mficitl ,w*t lias hern introduced io?* there islacds of the Pacific that the impartial historian must attribute the origin ot those great chsnpes which have marked the progress of society trom its chrysalis to its present condition. Th? ee missionsries who have effected most good, , have done it ky means of introducing the vast business motives of men; and we find that it ia by temporal, rather than spiritual teachings, that the king, Kamehameha, is persuaded to pas* thirty substantial laws in the course of a single session of hi* Assembly, and to enter into a long and important commtrcial treaty with the United Statea, aa it will be remembered he did on the itf)th of Dect mber last year. Yet, without touching further upon the origin; or the proximate causes of the advancement of the Sandwich Islands to a high and very premising position, we may he assured that the king has only to imitate the liberality to foreigners that has characterized the success of other nations, to establish a power f f to mean importance in the civilized world. The time is approaching when the Sandwich snd the Society Islands must be important to the whole civilized world. They hive the very centre port* of the wotld?stand like mid-way havens between the two great continents of the earth, and eath day will add to the (lory of their position The great revolution already effected hy the discovery of California? the establishment of th?t territory ftn on* of the Statrp of the Am'ripin Union?the aonneqaent trade about to be opened with Chiua, and, indeed, with the whole of eastern Aaia, force into a commercial aummit theae hitherto vniirportaat lalanda * Already nave commercial interchange* been comparatively great; hot with the increaainc lil>erality of the Hawaiiaa govrrnment, the tide of immigration tv Honolulu, and to the other Hawaiian porta will be aanuredly large, rapid and beneficial Aa thia flood of humanity poui* itaelf along, increased commercial activity will be the reault, and our fhina, on their way to India, China, and, eventually, to Japan, will make the harbor of Honolulu one of great buatle and imporlanre. There ia now a project on foot to make Honolulu city. Thia appear* to be a wine anggeation If that port were dignified with a looal city govrrnmrnt, it would inrreaae with great rapidity. The progrera of the place would be more quickly advanced than it poaaibly can be under the present ayatem. and it would aoon take a high rank among commercial citif a The argumenta. however, on tl.ia point are ao readily preaented that it is not requisite for 11s to enlarge tipon (hem. It is sufficient thit the kirn hu been so favorable to the adoption of liberal measures thai be will not lore tight of such a project, which, so fir from diniiiiitbiBg ha power, will add largrl j to it ia every way.
