What Thiy think of Otorgt Law in Washington?, d ministration Intrigue* ? Spanish Affairs. The rumors respecting the attitude or the alminis'ra tion towards Cub* cUangc like the kaleidoscope every day, leaving us ia a great etate of uncertainty. The utmost excitement aid feeling now exist, in relation to Geoige Law, at the seat of government, and especially among the departments and officials of government, who car not comprehend the enigma of a President being tales from the ranks of the people instead of the politi cisns. At first it was treated as a joke or malicious hoax of the Herald; but as the character of George Law begins to be dcvoloped, his great administrative talents understood, aid his chanoes brightening with every defeat and discomfiture of the administration, th? ex citement with the increasing chance of his election. Happy would it be for toe future weal of this co us try, if Georte Law sbould suocsed Franklin Pierce as President of the United States The grosses* m'srep reuettatioi s prevail through ignorance or inalerolencs in relation to Mr. Law, his family, ?duration and charac ter. He Is riptessnted by seme to be a foreigner. Now, his fatbsr was an old aad respectable farmer in Washing ton ceunty, New York, and gave his eldest son, Joseph, a colleg.ate education. Joseph graduated at Union Col lege with liigh honors, and was a law partner of ths Hon. Dudley ttaldon, of your city. George had a good sound Bngliih education, and has improved his truly great po vers of mlad since, by reading and study. He 1* a good historian, a logical reasoner, and looks with a practical eye is to everything? mankind, boots and bu siness. As to his character, he is eminently a moral man, strictly orthodox in American views, feelings and principles, and would bring to the discharge of tue exe cutive duties a mind vast and comprehensive, in its full vlger and ex par tion. It does a man good from time to time to be in Wash iagton, even during the recess to see what schemes Pierce, Forney and Jeff. Davis aie concocting for their mutual advancement. Would yon believe it, that after being whipped clear out of his boots, disowned, cudgeled snd literally " crushed out" by his own party, Pierce is fool enough still seriously to entertain the idea of a re election? Forney puts him up to it, for from the time Pleroe gets over his spree, (he is no>v drank with power.) bis butler, bottle washer, and something else, will be without occupation. Bs must be fooled to the top of his bent that be may dispose of all the money and patronage he has to bestow, in favor of his personal frieads; let Pierce become politically honest and free from vlee, and he will spurn such m?n as Forney aad others who are now his boon companions. One ef the contemptible means now resorted to by Pierce, Forney and Jeff. Davis, to keep Marcy down (because it is feared his reply to the report of the Os tend Conference might furnish him with poll tical cap! tal for the next Presidential campaign,) is to direct public attention to another quarter; and hence the Union has kept up an incessant Are upon 8pain, England and France, threatening war and destruction to the whole civilised world, when there is net a man In Wash ington, be he a foreign Minister or a domestic politician, who does not know that Pieroe would sooner faint than fight. Pierce, who, in the presence of Marcy, is over whelmed, and flutters like a little bird enshanted by a big black snake, revenges himself on his stubborn pre mier by setting Forney to sbuse him ia the go vera meat organ. Fornev is glad at the chance, beeause it helps Buchanan while he seems to serve Pierce; and Pierce is glad to kesp ths halanoe of power between the premier and the minister to l^ndon The President, it is believed, takes epon himself the responsibility of the orders, whatever thev may be, that I have b en given to Captain McCauley. Us is probably ordered to blow oat of the water the Spanish eraisers and their British consorts, also, ia resentment of the fpanish assumption of a right to hail our vessels aad a*k for I heir papers, and enquire whether they are on a piratical or comasereial errand. This 8panuh pretension and practice are assumed to besqulvaleat to the ? xerclee of a right of search, which, as advocates of the freedom of the seas, we do not ooaeede to any Power, upon any pretense whatever. The intelligence expected by the government from Havana, via Charleston, probably relates to the exercise by the Spanish authorities of this right of search, or rathsr cf visiting aad detaining oar vseeels. The United States Consul has, of coarse, had a oeafereacs wttb the " authorities on that subject, sad the result ImIno ?om ?Ulctbd to our gov. niawL The dstorssiBitioo of ths tpanish goverumrut to |?iit In this practice la. tberr tore, known uil tbo iMMon paper Ittfawd; made It r? mala ? only to bring tlie question to ths tost of term. fonr# appeal to think that the sinking, by Cap*.

It will depend upon Congress whether It ba carried on with tne wuole pour of the aoaatry or not, and thty will probably sav not. Tbe expectation of Intelligence from the destined war station of the aetnal destruction already by aay of our ?bipa, of the ofl* nding Spanish guard* tU eosia, will bo disappointed.

After a f.wdaysof pro found alienee on the part of the organs of the Llr "American Banking Hoase" in the country, we find a tengthy official statement of the affair, whieh we eaaaot let P?. without notice. Although the fimacui ^-ans of the banking honae referred to have frea. the Irat been pretty loud in their p^. of praUe we hare he fore bee. favored with a blast from an offloUl aenroe We have not mueh space to d.rete to a refutation of the statement, ma/e by the ' American Banking Honae '? and therefore merely give a brief and auccinct hi. tow of ths affair. Me*?. Dnnean, Sherman * Oo hev^Ju^ three months before they ware prepared to give any ex plaaat!on of their unaccountable oouree with their eor. respondents in January last, and now that both the par ties on tbe one side are oat of the city, they nut forth this statement, distorted In all its, incorrect ia all the e.sentlal particulars, and avoiding entirely the main question at issue. We are well assured that at time soarcely wer* Dwan, Sherman ft 90. ia actual tub advance, uM the two acoountsof hp h Bacon ul Page, Bmm * ?s., together. The latter dm gens rill j bad large eaah balances tpioit which Dansaa, Sherman ft Co. eould only ahow acceptances, sot ma turisg for acme time to com, and If a house of the re pited me ana of Duncan, Sherman 4 Co. felt the "torero money pressure" in "thoee stringent aad trying times," it mut hove heen from other sources than from auoU sc eoDDta aa thete. A)1 that Is said a boat wut of seesrity, he , ia futile. Mr Bacon la knows to hare responded promptly to every call of Dnaoao, Sherman k Co. for security, and on the 9th of January, when Mr. Sherman expressed uneasiness, Mr. Bacon at onoo conveyed to him, "in trust," private real estate ?alusd at $600,000? open doing which Mr. Sherman ex pressed himself perfectly satisfied ? his house being, a', that tisse, holders of bonds, stocks, and other good secu rities, previously desmed ample for their entire safety. Wo can easily imagine Mr. Bacon'* astonishment the ?sry next day to And Mr. Sherman still as ere exacting and pressing than ho had ever boon before, complaining of want of money, he. Ho was told to "ssUths securities,'' wh'ch ho did, (Missouri bonds, he.,) at frightful rates. Aga'n Mr. Sherman became mere exacting, and then Mr. Bsoon became alarmed? not so much at his own po sltion as at the equivocal course apparently adopted by Mr; Sherman. It was at this juncture that Mr. Baoon called on his friend, Mr. Asplnwall, and explained his position and askod his advice. An interview was had between all the partios, at which the Una) agreement was made ; and, to avoid any further misunderstanding Mr. Aspinwall dstormined to commit it to writing, which

he fid in the note of the 11th of January, which we annex' New York, Jan. 11, 1866. Watts Shxxxax, Esq.? Dxar Sib? To avoid all misunderstanding hereafter, I beg leave to recapitulate the result of our interview of this morning at Mr. Bacon's room : ? lut That the overdrafts of Page k Baoon, as advised up to last evening, be considered as a temporary loan, and be represented by their not* on demand, with the understanding that it shall be halt as a permanent loan for the perod at tlx months, if Page k Bacon are thereby benefitted so as to continue their business without' inter ruption; and provided, also, that the aceount of Page, Bacon k Co , of San Francisco, continues in a satisfac tory shape, by not being oveidrawn, and that Page k Bacon, or St Louis, do not exceed the one hundred thou sand dollars is thsir future overdrafte. 2. That you shall oontinue to pay the future drafts of Page k Baeen to the extsstof one hundred thousand dol lars, to be drawn in the ordinary course of their busi ness, under Mr. Bacon's as sura res that ths same shall be covsred within forty days from this data by the sar liest remittance from California S. That for any advanoee made by Duncan, Sherman k Co., aa above, I will bp responsible to them lor one half of such advances, not exceeding the principal of liability on my part, of fifty thousand dollars (660,000,) to be covered by my note payable on the 10th day of April next, and to be given aa soon as it shall appsar that such advances have not bsen covered by remit tances from California to the credit of Page k Bacon in the books of Duncan, Sherman At Co., or by Page k daeoa themselves, from the proceeds of the bonds in the hands of r. Huth h Co , or otherwise. I am, very respectfully, your obodient servant, WM. fl. ASPlNwALL. On this hinges the main point at issue in the whole business. Mr. Sherman agreed solemnly to two things: ?1st, to convert the demand loan of Pago k Bacon into a permanent loan of six months, if Pago k Bacon are thereby benefited so as to continue their busiases without Interruption; 2d, to continue to pay the futui a drafts of Page k Bacon to the extent of $100,000, to bo drawn in the ordinary course cf their business, he., the same to apply to drafts not then advised, this engagement being without any Other reservation or qualification whatever. On the next day $80,000 only on such drafts sgainirt this $100,000 wsre preiented, one of $60,000 in favor of the Bank of Missouri, and others to the amount of $30,000, all drawn " in the ordinary course of their businsss" on the 12th of January. Mr. Sherman be came again alarmed, and sent for Mr Bacon, end bogged to bs released from his written contract of the day before. Mr. Bacon told him that tho thing was simply ridiculous, and that hs had had enough of such work ; that there was the agreement, and it must be abidsd by; that he would take care of all beyond the contract. Mr. Asplnwall was seat for, and his ideas were the same as to the plain aad unequivocal duty and obligations of Duncan, Sherman k Co., and himself un der the contract. Mr. Baoon loft, fully assured in his own mind that there eould be but on* course, and that was the payments as agreed, and continued his pre parations to leave for fSt. Louis that afternoon, to ar range for all future drafts, when, to his utter astonish ment at 20 minutes to 3 o'clock, he was informed by one of the fcoployes of ths house that Mr. Sherman had determined to rsputfhto his contract and protest the paper he had obligated and pledged himself to protect This was the first moment Mr. Baoon knew of this phase of the affair, this breach of plighted faith and henor, which, among business men, Is consider ed more sacred than all others. Messrs. Dunsan Sheiman k Co., failed to fulfil a written obllga' tion to pay a ceiUin sum of money, and the ooniequtnce was that Pago k Bacon's paper was pro tested, and the odium thrown upon parties where it did not belong. Whitewash it as thsy may, use Albany ethics and taetics as well, these are the facts, and all the special pkading of the Regency cannot controvert them. It avails nothing to set up tho paltry excuss that the sum was, in their after opinion, inadequate, ho. ; that was not their business or in their contract. After events have shown that it was enough, for no more drafts came forward, and even at tho moment they put in this false plea, they received a telegraphic dopatch from New Orleans stating that $40,000 was on the way to them for the account of Page k Baoon, and within a few weeks of the time, Page, Bacon k Co. had a large surplus here, which w>ro than made gsod every pro mise and representation on their part.

The country dealers have bean busier in procuring sup plies, which they desire to get home with as early aa facilities for doing so are more generally afforded, by the resumption of Internal navigation; and local job bers have bought a little mere liberally, in order to per fect asaortmenta that had been broken by the execution or orders from their cuatomera, and in order to meet the recurring wants of these. Hence the increased animation, which haa bean without any positive infiueaoe ea prices- ( I Brown and bleached aheetinga aad ahirtiaga have been in moderate request, at steady prieea. Canton flannels are quiet, but otherwise unchanged. Denims, drills and duck remain about the aam?. There is a little more doing in ginghama and lawns, at, however, unim proved rates. Oanaburgs are sparingly purchased at lasguid prices. Printing cloths and prints appear about the aaarfb. Stripe ? aad ticks are dull aad heavy. Woollen goods exhiMt rather mere activity, but no* change in value. There is bat little doing in blankets. Chsaimerea are leaa pctlve, but ateady. Cloths attract rather moreattant on, but are languid in price. Doeskins sre telling in a small way at full rates. Flannels, jeans, aad linseya are pretty rreely offered, but ia alack request, and, if anything, favor buy era Mouslin do laines dis play no improvement. Satinets aad tweeds are essen tially the same. , Foreign productions are in moderate demand, at steady rates, where they suit the taste o 1 buyers. This Is rather seldom the case ; and in consequence, the business ia ra ther limited, at irregular prices, especially la the auc tioa rooms, where goods of an tarenor or unpopular aa ture are sold without reserve to the highest bidder, who seldom oiler near the prime cost. Or course, tbe result is unravorable to factors, but this had been anticipated, sad there Is but little disappolntmeat.
