The United States Senate did not meet yesterday, having adjourned over till Monday. In the House the monotony of balloting for a Speaker was diver ged by a spicy debate upon a proposition?pre sented by Mr. HUkman, (dem.) of Pennsylvania? that alter the Hiatielh vote all but tbe two highest candidates be dropped, and that oue oi these two be ehoeen. Of course the motion won rejected. There ata no re porta of new combinations. Col. Orris ?till regarded as an available man, but the time to try him lias not yet arrived. Probably the roedita tlans of the Sabbath may lead to something better than the caucuses of preceding days. Who knows? The Washington Unwu of yesterday contained the following interesting item of intelligence:?"We are informed that a person who desires to remain unknown has sddrest ed to the ohief of the Hussion legation a check for four thousand dollars to be transmitted to his government. The unknown donor, who only signed the initials W. Y., states in his letter that, full of admiration for the gallant de fern e of Bebastopol, he semis this liberal sum of money to be distributed among the widows and or. phans of the Koi-fliun soldiers who fell bravely fight at)- for their homes against foreign agressors.'' We publish elsewhere the call of the soft shell democratic Htute Committee for a Htate Conven tion, to meet at Syracuse on the rtli of January, to ehooco delegates to the National Convention at Cincinnati. The Board of State Canvassers have certified to the election of Samuel L. Belden, as Judge of the Court of Appeals for the long term. The fact that wme extensive inacuracies in the spelling of Mr. Seidell's mime had been discovered, fed to the ap prehension tliut he would 1k? ruled out by the Boerd. The contest for State officers in Wiscousin, on the (vth ult., was a very close one. The election of 13aist \v (dem ) and Bashford (black republican) lias been churned at varions times by the papers advocating tbe principles of the respective candi dates for (lovernor. Yesterday, however, was the time fixed by law for the Htate canvass, and the following telegraphic despatch, giving tbe result, was received in this city last evening from Hon. A. T.Cray, Secretary of State :? in all ibe oooniie" in the State Governor Barxtow's iov joritj is cue hundred and forty-three. Captain Ilaven, of tbe bark Chieftain, arrived at this port yesterday from Aux Caycs, reports that when he left it was very sickly at that place, espe cially among tbe shipping, as all the vessels in port bad bad more or less sic knees on board, and a great many deaths had occurred. Samuel 13. Haven, se ound officer of the Chieftain, aud youngest son of the Captain, aged twenty yearn, died on board, ol fever, on the lltb ult. Oliver King and Warren 0. Ayres, the first named ?eccutly a hctelkecper in Lowell, Mas.-., and the latter formerly a broker in Boston, were tares;cd on Friday night at laiwrence, Mass., charged with hav ing committed the robbery of fifty thousand dollars hi gold from the American Express Company, while m transitu between Dubuque and this city. Two other persons arc also in custody upon a similar charge. The Ifeury Clay Fire Insurance Company, of the city of New York, after an investigation by Mr. Barnes, under the direction of Comptroller Cook, has been " found wanting.'' Consequently, as in the case of several of its bogus cotemporaries, its doois will be closed. We give in another column on aecoant of an ex tensive conflagration which occurred yesterday morning at Noe. 17 and IS Canal street, whereby pro perty to the amount of upwards of one buudred tkuuMind dollars was destroyed. From the official report of the City Inspector we team that tire whole number of deaths in the city during the past week was 346, namely, 59 men, <19 women, 1.17 boys and 90 girls-- a decrease of 22 on the mortality of the week previous. There were 8 deaths of bronchitis, II of consumption, 19 or iutlain. nration of the lungs, 2 of bleeding uud 2 of conges tion of the lungs, 5 of diarrhoea, 3 of dysentery, I of cholera. 8 of inflammation of the bowels, tl of con gri'tion of the brain, 10 of dropsy in the bead, 5 of diceuse of tbe aeuit, 5 of inflammation of the stomach, 7 of typH- s fever, 4 of palsy, 37 of con vnLsions (infantile), 15 of cronp, 10 of debility, 32 of scarlet /ever 4 of hooping cough, 15 of jnaraimc >, (infantile.) cud 2 of smaJlpox.

Couhtttton The trials of Jo ige Stuart and Ilaker, t Mid the investi gation lately in pi ogress l> f"re ^0 l'?gis lative Committee, Lave let pei "umc accrete with regard to the p. *l'ce force in this city. Eleven hundred m<*i t there are, more cries*, among us, drawing a stlary from the city for their servicea as keupet * of order and enemies of vice and crime; it becomes 4jnitc curious to know bow many of tfvui are thieves, tow many levier- of black mail, .how many professional " su kers." On the Stuart trial, it came to light tb^t members ot tbe police force, werc'ftjendi aiioi* , Associates oi the wi^ft claui of thieves. They > .iew th?m familiarly, went to their house,*, as siciatcd with them, ey mpalhucd with thc/u. and apparently rejoiced when tbey escaped the band" of justice. On the Baker trial, the line be tween the professional fighting man and the po int u an, wa? drawn so narrow that they blend ed together, till it became almost impossible to ray where one began and the other ended. It appeared that men wearing the police uniform engaged in 1'gbtn with regular shoulder hit ters?not prottesional lights iu the discharge of their duly as police officers and tor the preservation of the peace; but fights of the very kind which tbey were paid fourteen dollars a week to suppresa Finally, the investigation before the Legislative Com mittee discloses an utter rottenness in the police arrangements which even surpasses all former disclosures in infamy. It appears that tnany of these paid guardians of the public peace prey like vultureB on the unfortunate women who are outlawed by modern society, tax them *cr presents when they go out on tar get excursions, tax them for preseots at New Year and Christmas, levy toll upon tbem when business takes them that way, and extort money from them when they meet, the whole being in consideration of the high and mighty protection ot the rascally officer, who can obtain a dis charge for an unprotected female when arrest ed and taken to the station boiiBe, and who, when required, can drop in discreetly and ter rify an insubordinate girl into submission to her tyrannical mistress. We likewise learn that besides these pariahs, not a few of the force are in leagne with a parcel of sharks who hang abont the Tombs in order to prey upon the criminals and prisoners. We are told that it 1b usual, a daily practice, which has existed for years, for keepers and officers at the Tombs and other station bouses to sell to cer tain lawyers the monopoly of the cases of the prisoners under their control for a remuneration equal to from thirty to forty per cent on the gross amount extorted from the poor prisoners. One lawyer?of respecta ble standing? tells us that he used to do this, but when the police raised the per centage fr<m thirty to forty per cent, he retired from the business, as he did not care to pay so much; and now, he says, no matter how ardently a prisoner may desire tohavehim for his counsel, it iB impossible for him to act, for the keepers of the prisons will not allow him to communi cate with his client. Now, we ask the Legislature at Albany whether these things can or ought to be tolerated ? Was there ever anything worse than the factB we have related, in the most corrupt city of Europe in the most cor rupt age? Was there anything worse at Rome at the time when even the vigor and the venom of a Tacitus failed to depict the corruption of the place? And what shall we deserve if we submit to this and allow this legislative session to pass without the enact mfin of a new charter wKh wholesome pro visions? Lord PMmtr?l?n and 31r? Marcy. Now that the war rumors have passed away, aud Englishmen and Americans have ceased to ihiiih about cutting each others throats, it is curious to note what share in the business of embroiling the two countries properly belongs to the lending statesman of each. It so hap pened, curiously enough, that at the t'uie the misunderstanding took place the leading statesman in Great Britain was a thorough political adventurer, who has held all sorts of others, and professed all sorts cf principles, for the snke of office and power? namely, Lord Palim-relon; while the leading statesman in this country waB Mr. Marcy?of all American politicians the one to whom the epithet of ad venturer most appropriately belongs," aud the one who has shown the moHt conclusively in the course of Lis political career that his ideas never rise above the spoils, and that be too is ready at any time to form part ot an adminis tration with men of uuy, every, and no princi ples at all. Neither Palinerston nor Marcy are men whom the publio voice called to the position they occupy. Palmorston is au old back politician, trained to the regular routine of British Cabi net business; all who take an interest in Bri tish politics will remember the murmurs of disapprobation which came from the British press and people when ho last took office. They wanted a strong man, fitted to grapple with the difficult crisis in which England was placed; but, owing to the peculiar organization of the British Parliament and executive departments, they could not find any one with strength and connections suffi< ieut to form a government; nod therefore old Lord I'almerston was pitched upon, ns a ministre de circon>'<ince. Just in the same way, Mr. Marcy was the last man in America to manage the foreign policy of Mr. Pierce's administration. lie had had no experi ence in loreign politics. He knew nothing of European affairs. He had never resided abroad, lie was merely a lair average lawyer and judge; but be had, from his influence in his political party, established a claim on tbo tri umphant "lemocrats In 1852, v. hich the Secre taryship of .Siate alone seemed adequate to satisfy. Many b?tter men there were for the of) < ?; but New York r> quired to be repaid for her services at the election, and the only mode of effecting this, without utterly disor ganizing the party, was to elevate Mr. Marcy to the Premiership ?like Lord Palmerston, a tnir ittn de cirremetnnce. The parallel may be carried out still fur ther. Both Pa inorston and Marcy are in triguers, and figure habitually in one or more characters at the same time. The former is a pv< fes??d liberal of the largest sympathies. 11 is a'l lor the people, all for free institu tions and extensions of he suffrage?in bis speeches; but privately, he is on very good ttrmswiih tb< court, and pretty much the friend of the ar;: tocraey at a pinch. When he goec down to his constituency, he addresses the farmers in language that might fall from Mr. Cobdtn himself; wbou Prince Albert, or the aristocracy are assailed in Parliament, they have no warmer friend or stouter defender than he. Compare Marry. To judge of his democracy by his speeches and letters, Thomas Jeff'.'r?on himself had not a more vivid sense ol the rights of man, or a more thorough will to abolish all the abuses of nepotism, routine and pmonal favoritism. Yet in his acts there is not a ntore unswerving purtisan of the clique system of government than Mr. M.ircy. All he docs is by aud for a clique. lie has round bfm a select circle of domineering demo crats, and will rerogni?c no one who does not bow to them aud accept their law. There is cot nn old nest of nr}H>tism in the country fc,\rhdocH not rely on Mr. Mar y for a defence. Ti c Mine similarity previfiis in their policy. Both are intensely fond of blustering, and, It moat be added, equally fond of terminating a quarrel by a profuse outpouring of apologies and assurances of regard for their adversary. Bo h are naturally indolent and haughty in tb?'r language and demeanor; hut both are accustomed to be set down with marvellous ease, and submit with philosophy. Endowed, in short, with ro small share of the character of ihe coward and bully, these two men, finding themselves in a position of power and authori ty, have indulged their instinct so far as to jeopardise the peace existing between the countries over which tbey are set. They soon perceived the danger and quickly receded from the foolish positiou they assumed at first; But the lesson will not be lost on the public. And when the time comes for the publication of the correspondence, the people both here and in England will measure the expense and cost of indulging themselves in the luxury of minitOcs tie circvttetance, by an inquiry into the cost of a war between the United States and Great Britain. The Private <Jor*e?pondenee ?f Hen 17 Clap? Ugkh ana BUi?te??r Politic*. There in ? vast amount of interesting mat ter in what it) published as the private corres pondence of Mr. Clay, liberal extracts from which we lay before onr readers. The public mind likes to look behind the formnle of official routine and ceremony, to ascertain how the great personages who enter tain the world contrive to get along? with mere private affairs. History ia made np by far too much of the movements of armies, thp discussions of legislators and the corres pondence of diplomatists. In thiB way that which mak"s history?the whole inner life, the ' daily walk and conversation?ia concealed or counted as unworthy of notice. Instead of ! tracking out prominent individuals-in place, | in fact, cf individualizing nations, care seems to hove been taken to present the public with ! nothing but the mere exterior of the castle, the paint and varnish of the structure. 1'eihapH in no case within the range of our j existence as a nation could a person be selected i whose private acts and associations are of Buch general interest as those of Henry Clay. Ii not the greatest man which our country has produced, he is undoubtedly the fittest repre sentative of .American ideas and life, lie was cast in the finest American mould; not whit tled out and driven into a place in society, but a full natural growth. As a whole, he was the ablest statesman we ever had. He went off the stage of life nearer than any other as he came on. He was at once the most extreme and the most moderate man in the republic. Mr. Clay was the very embodi ment of the constitution itself. In saying this we would not be understood as endorsing all bis theories; for many of them had reference rather to Mr. Clay as a politician, as the leader of a grcRt party, which he was permitted to counsel, but had not always the power to con trol. He advocated the charter of a national bank, a high protective tariff*, a grand scheme of internul improvements by the general government: bat these were projects of a party which was organized in opposition to General Jackson. This is teen by reference to his cor respondence. It is interesting to observe as late as the summer of 1827?two years after the election of Mr. Adams?how sensitive was Mr. Clay on the subject of the federal policy of the elder Pre sident Adnras. Speaking of the latter, he says "1 gave all the effect 1 could in,private circles' (he was too young to be in public life) "against some of the prominent measures of that ad ministration, and what I believed to lie its ten dency, if not the ultimate aim of some of its principal supporters. But I could not allow myself to transfer my dislike of the adminis- 1 tration of the father to the person and public character of the son." Mr. Clay was a democrat in its broadest and deepest sense. Previous to what was termed the " bargain and sale" of 1824, whicj? resulted in the election of Mr. Adams over Gen. Jack son, and the appointment of Mr. Clay to the post of Secretary of State, then supposed to be in the line of safe precedence to the White 1 House, Mr. Clay had been the acknowledged republican leader in the national Legislature. J 14e wub reared in Kentucky, a frontier State, where they made nothing but liberal, patriotic 1 men. There were no disunionists in those days. Even Colonel Burr, who was believed to be a traitor to the Union, writes to Mr. Clay as early as 1806, and having been charged with origi Duting a scheme looking to a dissolution of the States, says: "I have neither published a line on this sulject, nor has any one through my agency, or with my knowledge." The truth is, Colonel Burr, in those times, could hardly ob tain a bearing amongst our black Hpublicans. 011 the basis of what he did in opposition to the government. Traitors then were rare pro ductions. Mr. Clay was Colonel Burr's coun sel, and believed Lis client guiltless of all de signs to impair the integrity of our national compact. We can readily imagine that amongst a people like those of Kentucky, bold, daring, chivalrous and patriotic, it would be difficult to understand bow an American could devise means to sever the bonds that bound us toge ther as one people; just as difficult as it Is now for a true patriot to comprehend how an abo litionist and negro worshipper can be anything else than a traitor to his country. Perhaps no mun in the United States ever passed a prouder, a more cloudless career than did Mr. Clay during the first twenty years of j his public life. lie was the observed of all observers?the chief object of attraction by all parties?the nation was literally waiting for a lew years to be added to his youth to crown him with its highest houors. The great secret of his strength was. after all, his hu manity-his pre-eminent social qualities, united as they were with wonderful common sense. Hewss, as we have said, a natural growth?a full grown and well cultivated man by the pow ers of his admirably balanced and Intuitive mind. He was no student of other mcu's thoughts; be always relied opon his own, and he was sale beyond any man of his day in do ing so. It has always been a marvel how such a person became intimately associated with Mr. Adams, and a violent opponent of General Jackson. There is one marked resemblance between the latter?they were both distinguish ed for self-reliance, a characteristic which made the one the most distinguished aud suc cesslnl statesman, and the other an unsuc cessful leader of a party. They were new statesmen?Western men-a portion of our country hereafter morethau in the pa?t, which is likely to produce our best warriors and our most acceptable political guides. Mr. Clay wrote to F. P. Blair on the 8th of Jauuary. 1 1 $16?the innlTtmrT of the bottle of New Or leans?in regard to General Jack so a and Mr. Adams, thus:?" To both of those gentlemen thi re are strong personal objections." To the former he was moved by policy alone, as he was a General, and he feared the example^of his election as a long stride towards building op a military spirit not at all in harmony with our institutions. Three weeks afterwards, iu another letter to Mr. F.lair, it will lie seen be | uairows down Gen. Jackson's claim*, and fixes those of Mr. Adams upon negative grounds, thus:?"Mr. Adams, yon know well, I should never have selected if at liberty to draw from the whole mass of our citizens for support. But there is no danger in his elevation now, nor in time to come. Not so of hiH competitor, of whom I cannot believe that killing two thousand live hundred Englishmen qualities tor the various difficult and complicated duties of the chief magistracy." Mr. Clay was no petty office seeker. Up to 18'2f> bis public career had been that of a statet man of the very highest grade. Lie says, iu a letter to Judge Brooke, on the 4th of February, of that year : " My dear sir, I want no offica When have 1 shown an avidity for office ? In rejecting the mission to Russia and the Depart ment oi War under one administration ? in re jecting the same department, the mission to England, or any other foreign mission, under the succeeding administration ?" Undeniably, subsequent to this, and when he had been driven into fellowship with the living elements of the old federal party, he was compelled to descend to the employment of a little of the intrigue which Mr. Van Bnren and Mr. Marcy were so soon to introduce into the election contests of the country. But in truth Mr. Clay was no politician. He was an opeo, outspoken, candid man. His associa tions imposed upon him most uncongenial la bors ; if we had no other evidence of this fact, it ought to be sufficient that never after his connection with Mr. Adams was he able, us be fore, to sway the popular mind and carry it with him. Half and more of the power of a leader is in the thorough earnestness aud self conviction of the truth und justice of his posi tions. He became allied to the banking, man ufacturing and commercial interests, ami be was their idol; but unfortunately they were not ns great in numbers as in respectability. They besieged Congress for favors; and this fact alone was enough to raise up against them the great agricultural classes, who believed themselves charged with all the benefits ex tended by legislation to the former. Mr. Clay maintained his ascendency in his own State alone ; but before his death was impressed with the full consciousness that his crrorB were for gotten by his countrymen, and his pre-eminent services and his boundless love ot country only remembered. Fhkstoent Pierce's Proclamation auai.vst the Nicaragua Fujububtbes.?Considering the lateness of the season for the proclamation of the President of the United States against the

Nicaragua filibusters, many of our innocent readers will perhaps be puzzled to understand what ]{r. Pierce is driving at. For six months past, Gen. Walker has been permitted, without molestation, to collect bis troops in California, and ship them ofT to Ni caragua, in that great enterprise of the libera tion and Americanization of that benighted country, and of the equully benighted regions that surround it. Why did not the President issue this proclamation of his six, four, three or two monthB ago? Why docs he issue it now, when it is like locking the door after the horse has been stolen ? Cui bono ? What's the use of a proclamation after Gen. Walker has conquered Nicaragua, and secured North Ame rican troops enough to conquer all Central America? We suspect that Mr. Pierce does this to throw dust into the eyes of John Bull and "the slippery Northern democrats ot Con grees. To the former he desires to show bow scrupulously our neutrality obligations are re spected, in contrast with Crampton's enlistment outrages ; (o the latter he desires to show that be is really opposed to the filibustering subju gation and absorption of Central Ajwrica and Mexico for the benefit of the Souft. Further more, we imagine that this proclamation is in tended as a gentle hint to Col. Parker H. French, the Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary iroin Gen. Walker's govern ment to ours, that he cau't come in. Certainly, for all other purposes this dainty proclamation is behind time. It comes out after the filibus ters have gone in.
