In conversation with a diatioguinhnd democratic 8ena t<ir today, he expressed himseir as ? ?< I harre no doubt in my own mind Pierce vu actuated, in a great degree, in tending hia Message to Congress at the time be did, by a desire ef bringing it before the Southern State conventions, wblcb are to come off vriibin ttte nest few days, and which eleot delegates to tbcNational Con vention.

GEN''RA L AL MONTE CALLED TO THE PRESIDENCY? IMPORTANT MOVEMENTS ON FOOT. Washington, Jan. 3, 1856. The mo.-t reliable Information received from ptrlles occupjing influential positions in MpxIco, indi :ates a serious deslgr ailing General Almonte to the head of affairs, they i c.-arding him as a man of much oxp?, conservative in his opinions win has liad no com plicty with the recent revolution in that country, who understands so thoroughly the working of republican institutions from his experience und residence here, and who at various periods has exercised his iL&uence to In duce Mexico to adopt a form of government more in con sonimee with our own ? hence thu wish to pluce fcira in a position to give, if possible, permanent peace and sta bility to Mexico. Instead of proceeding at once to the C.'urt of St. James, he will, it is understood, depart for Mexico, and tbeie pUce himself at the disposal of his friends. Should he be called to the head of the Mexican government, and secure the ends suggested, the result cscnot fail to be grati'yiiig to our own countrymen. His ismflyhave already proceeded to Mexicj. S ine members voting for Banks are not backward in t-xp'etsiDg the opinion that he cannot be elected, and are i txions to bolt and go for some other candidate. Mr. Boyce, of South Carolina, whom Mr. Peroy Walker wished to bave declared Speaker ? uniting upon him the conservative elements of the House ? belongs to the Gal heno Southern wing, and considers a dissolution of the Union inevitable, regarding It as a mere question of tine. THIRTY- FOURTH CONGRESS. FIRST SESSION. SENATE. Washington, Jan. 3, 1850. TUB TREASURY RETORT. The financial it-port of the Secretary of tlie Treasury was rsceived. Mr. Masos, firm.) of Va., moved tha*. 10.600 copies be printed by the printer to the Senate of the last, Congress, at rate* not exceeding those established by law. A discussion ensued as to the power of the Senate to take such action, since it would, as conten '.ed on one side be a violation or evasion of the law of the last ses sion relative to the public printing. The resolution was adopted. THE HECX11ION OF THE .V1J*8A<!1 ? SENATOR HALE'S OPINION OV 1RE8IDKNT PIERCE. Mr. Hale, (abolil'iniit) of N. H., remarked that he m not in his seat when th? President's annual message came In else he should have objected to Its reception as irregularly sent. He wou)il not pretend tu si ate reason* wby the Presidont took such. an extraordinary and un l'Tec< dented course; but Yankees aie allowed to guess, tud he would by no means presume to assert that the President has taken thia opportunity to gs down on his kne< s to the South beeaase several Southern States we to hold democratic conventions about the 8tli of January . (Laughter.) If such is the true version of the case, he was sorry the President bad taken so much tiouble for nothing, for there is just as much chaase lor one of the Senate's pages to be nominated tor the Presidency as for Mr. Pierce. (Laugh ter.) The President takes np muoh of the message in talking about Central American affairs; but he, (Mr. Hale,) thought there is a place in the central part of the I nited States on which the eyes of tne people are turned with vastly more attention, namely ? Kansas. Mr. Haie stated, on the authority of Mr. Calhoun, that the Monroe doctrine, so much talked about, was originally suggested by the Biitiah cabinet. It Is true, as the President says, that acts havo occurred in Kansas contrary to go >d order, but they had taken place by instigation of the President. It is not the first time tho ('resident has de livned a lecture on slavery. It was insulting to tbe ma jority of thia nation for tlie President to say, in effect, that tbe men who riissgreed with h<ra on that subject are enemies to the constitution. Mr. Hale rebidked neh an imputation. The Supreme Kuler, for the punishment of our national sins or humiliation of our national price, lias neimitud Fierce to occupy the Presidential chair, nor* he comes down intu the arena of the demagogue, stripped of everything which should clothe him with executive dignity, (laughter.) KANSAS A STAIRS CALL FOR INTORSIATtON. Mr. Wli-sON (black rep.,) ot fa ass. , offered a resolution (which lies over.) calliog upon the President for informa tion relative to trout' len in Kansas. Adjourned to Monday. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. Washington, Jan. 3, 1856. TU* SPEAKERSHIP. Mr Mack. (Jem.) of Ind., offered a re olution that tho acting doorkeeper of the House be required to lock all the doors leaelng to this ball instanter. aud keep them se curely fastened till a Speaker is elected, unless they are opened for the purpeso of letting in absent msmoers. (laughter.) We had ecclesiastical precedent for this la the election of a Pope (laughter) to sncceed Clement IV , in 1668. The Cardinals were for nearly three years un able to ag^ee on the choice of a wcccssor, and were on the point of breaking up, when th* magistrates of Home, by the advice of St. Benjamin, shut the gates of the city, thus locking np the Cardinals till they ag-eed. He was not so much of a Know Nothing as not to acknowledge the finding authority of this precedent. (I&ughter.) If the resolution was adopted, be ventured to say the calls of natuie would be such, either far refreshment or otbuwlss (Isughter), as to forc? the election ot a Speaker within ten hours. ^Merriment.) On the motion of Mr. Boyee, the resolution was tabled. The House then voted for a Speakeo, with the tallowing rt-?ult:? EKHITT HEVENTII I1ALI.OT. Banks 102 Ptnnicgton ft Richardson 73 Scattering u Fuller 83 Nowssary to a choice 110. Two additional vo'.es were taken with tho same result as the eighty-seventh, given above. Mr. Walkeh (K. N. dem.) of Ala., with the view ol uniting the conservative element s of the Hoi o. , ffered a tesolutlon declaritg Mr. Boyce (dem ) of S. C., Spoak?r, regarding him as eminently qualliied, and as h>n in^- taken no part ui the democratic caucus, the American party could not carry out their wishos, therefore ho wits in clined to surrender Mr. Fuller solely tar the purpose of organizing. Mr. Galloway, (black rep.l of Ohio, moved to subs'i tute Mr. Banks, and demanded the republicans from Mr. Walker's charge of sectionalism. On the contrary, they are national, sseking to carry out the cardinal principle* of freedom. Mr. Dcnn, (black rep-) of Ind., appealed to the friends of Mr. Banks to accommodate themselves tt circumstances to secure seme degree of harmony in all quarters. Do svgges'ed the name of Mr. Pennington tor Speaker. Mr. Rack, (black rep.) of N. Y., m-, ted to lay the reso lution on the table. Before tl e question was put, several gentlemen took oc casion to define their position. Tkure -uiution -was tabled by a v< te of 141 to 75. Mr. CnRoM, (dem.

Affniia on this frontier bava assumed a very favorable aspect, and the difficulties between Tauaulipas ant New 1 eon, that bad threatened a boHous rupture, have been i-et'led to tie satisfaction of all parties. Govfinur Gaza, of this State, has received the appnin ? mtnt of Commauding General of the same, and his jio?tre as such, as also Governor Vidaurrl's, have beta fully and explicitly defined and marked out by the gene ral government, in each a manner as to prevent in fu ture any difficulties between tnese two leaders in this section of Mexico. The Tampico difficulty, alao, has been fortunately ter minated, and on the 4th instant Governor Gazi was to ??ccupy that city with the forces under his command. General Traconis, who held the place against him, has been ordered to Mexico, and bis troops remain under Vidaurii's orders, who will cither retain them in Monte rey or and them into the interior, as be may deem ad visable. Tlie Cevallos tariff is now in force here on this lino, and the amounts lecelvid at the custom housei of Turn pico and this place are to be divided as toll 'ws: ? )ne third to be given for the support of the troops in this Stale, and two-tbirns lor tbe forces in New Leon and Coahuila, under Governor Vidaurri. The adoption of tiiiii liteial 'arifT has given trade and commerce a fresh impulse on the line, and the beneficial influence of the measures lately adopted wi.1 immediately be felt on thli fruitier. Ihe National Guards are being rapidly organized, an we are at last satisfied that they are tbe oaly nope fo i-iiving the liberties of the country.

This gentleman ?poke half an hour, Imploring the House to orpanize and proceed with the public business. He made a pathetic ap peal to the numbers to throw aside their personal and political predilections, and enter at onee up in their legis lative duties. Mr. Foote, belug of the b.ack republican stride, was voted. ,4r#n a'most unanimously. Anotner tr al for Speaker was had, which produced the same result, when Mr. Van Santrocrd, of '1 roy, submitted another resolution, declailsg that after three more efforts to elect, U no choice could be made, then the person re ceiving a plurality on the fourth tiial shall be declared tbe t-pt-aler. Mi. Meban from New York, took the door and spoke quite eloquently against the proposition declaring Van Santrocrd a Know Nothing, though pretending to be a democrat . Mi. M. also stated that he had thus far ab stained 'rom roting for Mr. Bailey: but if tint gentlemtn would aunounne himself a union democrat, he tould got all the scattering votes.

Prospects qf a Protracted Struggle. The Seward power in Albany, so long and unscrupu lously used to control tbe legist alien, of the State, has this session recelred its quietut, For the past two yea rs it has been declining, and the triumph it achieved throtgh treachery last fall in tho re-election of its chief to the feuste of the United States, was the struggle that precedts final dissolution. The election of black repub lican officers in the Senate yesterday in reality amounts to but little, as it was only secured by reas.n of bargains made with such men ai Bellinger. Rider, C. P. Smith aud tbe like, by which thay have been promised aid in cer tain legislation of personal interest to them. When bt Is are piesented to that body repealing the laws creating the State paper, and the railrooo commission and similar corrupt acts, the votes of the republican democratic n embers will show that the Albwtiy regency is ic tuct shorn of its power. In the Assembly they are of course impotent. ihoseof the democratic members of the House whe call themselves "softs,'' met in caucus on the 1st. just prior to the sweating in of the members, and. a.s t iu have already heard, nominated a candidate (or Speaker.
