Wamii.nuton, Jan. 4,1858. BliheSenate to-day the Vice President presented com B?nlotioBS from the departments, none of which, how ear, were of general interest- A large number of memorials and petitions were presented of a local nature. Mr. Dnsta introduced a joint resolution to extend and define the authority of the President of the United States respecting the act to promote the efficiency in the navy rehire to dropped and retired nuval officers. Mr. Fcssenden | presented a bill to provide indemnity for Preach spoiia hona committed prior to 1801. Mr. Pugh introduced bis his bill In regard to tbo admission of Kansas. Mr. TMtdell ashed up bis resolution calling upon the Secretary of the Navy to communicate to tbo Senate the record of the Moral Courts of Inquiry and amend H so as to hare an abstract Instead of the whole xe ord. One o'clock having arrived, the matter was postponed, and Mr Brown, of Mississippi, who was emitted to the tioir, commenced an able and elaborate speech poo the Kansas question. Afur speaking for (en rninuUvi Us voice failed biin, and he was compelled to suspend. The Senate immediately adjourned until to morrow, when ha will probably resume his remarks. In the Honse Mr. Clingman, from the Committee on PoreigD Relations, submitted resolutions calling upon the President for all the papers and information relating to the Mtaure of Walker, and for all instructions, 4c., given to Commodore Paulding on the subject. At least a dozen amendments were offered, and a vast deal of talk in bulged In, which woo entirely irrelevant. Humphrey Marshall proposed an amendment that the President inform tho llwufce whelber the United Slates, by treaty or Uterwise, has agreed with the government of Nicaragua to keep open the Transit route, and to uso the forces ef the United states for that purpose if necessary, which was adopted. This relates to the Yrisarri treaty, which has not been ratified, and consequently will not be furnished. A large number of reports, bills and resolutions were submitted, which wero referred to appropriate conimitives. Mr. Taylor, of New York, gave notice of the following bills For the security f life on our Rea coast, la cose of shipwre:k; to equalise the pay of the army and navy: fo increase the salaries of the Judges ol'the Supreme Court of the United States; to amend the patent laws, and to regulate the manner of procuring patents. Mr. Cochrane introduced a bill for odiflcation of the collection laws, and for other purposes. Mr. Hatch submitted a resolution calling upon tho Secretary of War to report the condition of public works upon the north and northwestern lakes and rivers. This looks like a movement for internal improvements. Mr. letcher troduced a bill to establish a branch mint at New York city. Mr. Quitman asked leave to introduce his bill to repeal the Neutrality laws. Despatches were to-day received at the Navy Department tnm Commodore Armstrong, of tbe Fast India squadron, Anted Oct. 20. lie communicates letters from Cape Foote, firing a full and accurate account of bis (Foote's) visit to Bakodadl, Japan. Be bad called on tbe Earl of Elgin, sir John Bo wring, and Admiral Seymour, from whom be learned tbat tbe British naval forces under Admiral SeyBou would make a demonstration on Canton in tbe eneu g month. Canton, be says, baa been strongly fortified daring the cessation of hostilities. Tbe French forces, with their Ambassador, are lying at an Island further up the Vtmr, and seem indisposed to participate with the English la their attack upon Canton. There are rumor* shoal that MM of the Southsra mem hero of Congreas in reference to Kansas sre beginning to ash, and tbat tbey are ready to reject tbe U>compton acne tit uu'p. and side with pougtae rather than Jefferson - Daots. But ss this Kansas question Is now an issue to tbe Be eth | which rises above the question of men and fart tons, the Southern members of both Houses will be required to tend their ground. To this end there will probably be aa early Southern caucus, " big with the fate of Komo.'' tku omnui mnrwAi-mt nssrircw.

ENE am HoiUKK or tub nlibuwmw?a call mm thk oocvinm. Mr. Cuxgxax, (adm.) of N. C., from the Committee cn Foreign Affaire, reported a resolution that the Presidnntba requested, If In his opinion not incompatible with the public interests, to communicate all information In his possession in relation to the seizure of General Walker and his followers in Nicaragua, together with such instructions as have been given to naval and other officers. Mr. JoN*a, (adm.) of Tenn., would like the gentleman to modify his resolution so aa to call for information respecting the fitting out of the expedition by Walker in this ocuntry. Mr. Clwoxa* replied that he would modify the resolution if he bad the power, but it being a report from a committee, he could not do so. The resolution was reeeivod, under a suspension of tho rules, by 117 against47. Mr. Ounoman said a moment's reflection would convince the gentlemau that the resolution should be adopted. It was sufficiently broad to cover the entire ground, and the President would be likely to inform the Housu what this man Walker has been doing. This was a matter of great importance, which the House could not overlook. It involved three considerations to bring it to their notice. In the first place, the rights of Walker and his followers who had been seized; whether they are criminal or not is another question. Secondly, the rights of Nicaragua and Costa Kica, or whoever owns the Territory invaded. Thirdly, and of more importance, which did not depend on either of the two points preceding, it appeared that one of our naval officers, whether or not by the authority of the President, had marched into foreign territory, and brought away Walker and his cue or two hundred men by force. It must strike every one that this was at act of war. Suppose Walker was a bad man: this Uiu not justify tbe invasioaiSr Nicaragua lor his arrest. Suppose Nicaragua did not object to the invasion of her soil by a foreign army for that purpsse: this did not justify Commodore Paulding. If civil war or rebellion were in progress there, and our officers suppressed it, the triumphant party would not complain. He had no doubt if in the revolution in Paris American troops had interfered in behalf of louis Philippe, the latter would not have complained of tbe invasion Mr. Urrrmi: (opp.) of Pa., interposing, said the act of (Vim. Paulding wus justifiable ou the ground that Walker was a fugitive from the criminal law, and officers being despatched, bad a right to arrest htm anywhere. Mr. Clingxan resuming, remarked that he did not concur with bis friend. If a fugitive go into Canada we would have the right to make a demand upon a foreign government for bis restoration. But if wo invade that territory, the gentleman from Pennsylvania could see it would involve us in much trouble, and would present a very serious question. Congress may authorise interference in the alfairn of a foreign country, but ax Congress is the war making tower, our ofllters have no right to invado a foreign country without authority. It we justify the invasion of Central America by Paulding, what may not Great Britain do? If we can land lorces there and interfere in the allairs of that country, Great Britain ran oo the same, if this be not a violation ?f the Clayton Buiwer treaty, what is'/ The government of the United States is bound to disavow the act of l'nu!ding. Were we to leave our naval ollioers discretion to commit acts of this description'/ The President himself canuot do it,and certainly not his subordinates. Mr. Wakkicn (adm.) of Ark., objected to tho discussion of the merits of the question on a mere resolution calling for inf< t it lion?while prepared to vote for it, he was not ready to c intuit himself on tho question till properly advised on all the facts. Mr. Cu.vc.van had no doubt the House will get the information quite speedily?perhaps to morrow, Mr. Joskh, ol' Tennessee, raid it waa right that the House should be informed of all the facta relative to tho titling out of the expedition in this couutry by Walker, and all the ln.ormution respecting his capture and return. YOKM?"That's right.'' "IajUs have it all." Mr. Kailknkn, (adm.,) of Va., moved an amendment to the resolution calling on the President to communicate all the tacts and information which rendered it probable tnal William Walker was engaged last summer aud autumu, within the limits of the Uuited States, in littihg out a military expedition against the people and territory of .Nicaragua, also, copies of ail orders, letters and ins tractions adoriseed to the various otticers of the government relative thereto; together with auch other measures as were adopted to arreat said military i R crpriec and enforce the neutrality laws: also embrac tng the Instructions, If any. to Commodore 1'auldlng for the arrest of Walker, and showing how it has been approved or disapproved by the government. Mr. John Co< hhank. fadm.,1 of New York, would have the inquiry made to include all the circumstances hearing on this important question. It was essential to know what waa Walker's position in regard to the laws of the United Mates when be left our shores, by what authority he assumed to act, and whether his authority was an assumption against the laws ol the United Mates. This was as important as his attitude In relation to the government itself. Mr. Savacs. (adm.,) of Tennessee, said the House was not in condition at present to discuss this question with justice to the couutry, the administration and our great interests involved in Central America?interests such as no other nation has there. Without bring a partisan ot Walker, he would say that the cause of which Walker seemed to be the representative, whether worthy or unworthy, da served candid on?Ida ration.

Mr. lli'Mmiurr MaRshail, (opp.) of Ky , offered an amendment U> Mr. Faulkner s amendment. calling on the President further to communicate whether our govern ment. prior to the arrest of Walker, had undartaken. by treaty or other arrangement with the existing government of Nicaragua, to guarantee the peaceable enjoyment of the Transit route between the Caribbean (tea and the Pa cite Ocean,or otherwise assume the protectorate of said route, with the army of the I'nlted States, if neceesarr. Mr. Marmhali said his intention was to ascertain to what extent lhi? government aaeuincd the protectorate which might induce it to ahield an officer who violated the law. The original resolution. as amended at the instance of Mi mo. Faulkner and Marshall, wa? passed Mr Kxiesv. (opp ) of N.

There is a majority of slx'for admitting Kan sas under the constitution, in the Senate, and a working majority in the House?that is certain. Commodore Paulding, it seems, has acted eon amor* in bringing back Walker and his men. The gallant Commodore, however, has set the world a curious example in the way of treating "pirates and murderers," by Inviting their leader into his cabin and dismissing him afterwards on his parole of honor. The old tar most have seen some saving grace in his captive, or he would not have thus treated him as a prisoner of war. We have now two great naval achievements to chronicle?the bombardment of Grevtown, on t the capture of a whole army?both accomplished without the loes of a single man! Commodore Paulding approves of the conduct of the odicers and meu under his command in general terms, but ho flailed to indicate by name those wbo were most gallant in the descent on shore, and con sequently moet entitled to promotion. It lias been observed that the shore is the natural element of many of our naval officers; and some, no doubt, will be indulged in their prediction. The President will, no doubt, carry out his Central American policy; and in pursuance of the new treaty with Nicaragua, protect the transit across the Isthmus by Uncle Sam's troops, under the stripes and stars. The whole civilized world is interested in that policy of the President which will substitute a fait acctimpli tor the obrcure interpretation of the Clayton Itulwer treaty, and put on end to English tlllhustertt-m as well as our own.

The republicans held their caucus in the Assembly clumber, Ibis being their privilege, h iving the largest number of members. They were not long in selecting Mr. Van Valkenburgh for Speaker, and Mr. Richardson for Clerk. The Sergeant-at Arms and Door Keopcr required more time to agree upon. The caucus was very harruonious. Very few rabid barnburuers havo been elected; there are no Hogcbooms or Wousters among the rcpub licans this year. The democrats held their caucus in the Senate chamber. They had a more lively time, and for a white it was quite exciting. Mr. Alvnrd, Mr. llanford and two or three New York gentlemen, contended for the nomination of Speaker. The friends oi cacn have Dcon very inuusvriuus iur iuu 1mt ten days. Alvord woe accused of being onti railroad, which atflrnt seemed to bear heavily upon him. But ho subsequently rallied and wo* in better spirits. The bifl kiting wm quite animated, and finally resulted in tlio choice of Mr. Alvord. The Clerkship lay between Mr. Riley, of New York, 1 and Mr. Curhm.in, of Oneida; linully Mr. Riley succeeded , In getting the democratic nomination for Clerk of the i Houm of Assembly. It is by no means certain that the House will be or 1 gantsed to morrow. The Know Nothings thin evening of fered terms to the republicans, but were too extravagant, and were not accepted. Though the Know Nothings have ( only eight members, still they hold the balance between the two other parties, and demand the Clerkship of the House. This the republicans refuse to concodu to them. It war confidently stated, late in the evening, that Weed t bad succeeded in bringing over four Americana, which, if correct, will secure the republicans the organization. The same state of things exists in the denote, though it does > not affect the organization, for that is accomplished as soon as the Lieutenant Governor coils to order, and the Senators are sworn to obey the constitution, he., he.

The principal points touched upon in the forthnoming message are the hanks, the canals, the railroads and the Mate finance* The Governor goes fuUy Into the bar.k qviealioo, deplores the recent suspension, while Ju?Uf> mg it under the peculiar circumstances of the case, and urgei the necessity of providing against such an occurrence In the future. He recommends legislation that shall compel all baake In the male to keep in their vaults an cnlargwl specie basis for all their Indebtedness This Is likely to he objectionable to the country banks, while It will make hut little difference to the city banks. Indeed, some of the country bankers, Tearful that such a policy might be advocated, have already protested strongly against it. In regard to the canals, the message take, strong ground in favor of the speediest completion of the enlargement by means of farther direct taxation Cpol this [>olni the Go rrnov speaks right out in meeting. He slim enlarge* upon the v?ry embarrassed condition of tho State finances, showing what injury to the State it Is to be in a bankrupt condition, and urging anllVcient direct taxation to replenish the exhausted Treasury and set the Slate upon her feet once more. I may say here that the tax, premiums. Ac., for canal purposes will realise abcut H 400.000 Of Ui's, In the first three m<*ilh* of tho fiscal year, fit,800,000 has been already anticipated and expended, besides leaving a large number of "Utstanditg drafts for that period. Thus, far more than half the amount for the year is swallowed up in the first quarter The < lover nor attacks the railroad bills of last session, ' ar l recommends the repeal of tome of '.bum. lie wII ERA probably offer an apology for figntag them. Ho re com | menile distinctly the imposition 01 tolls upon raUruau I senger fare. He alao recommend* on increase in all canal toll*, until tbe canal roveuues can be brought up once more to a respectable buui Tbe message takes ground in favor of the constitutionality ot a registry law, and alter expressing a proper degree of indignation against tbe wickedness of New York voters and politicians, recommends the ptusioge of melt an act to apply to cltiea. Of course Kansas milieu in for a "favorable notice," and tbe good uatured, easy, jovial executive grown facetious over a review of Mi Buchanan s abandonment of squatter sovereignty This part of tbe message u, of course, all hush, but it is a party necessity at. wnlcb the liovernor laughs in bis Blevve. These are the main point* of the message. The Auditor will have a I ug and elaborate report, and will handle tbe railroads without inlttena. This railroad internet in giowmg to a vuet extent in our State policy. The coat ot the railroads in the Slate is ucluuliy U(|ual in amount to one tenth of the whole taxable property in tho State. The aggregate value of the taxable property is about fourteen honored millions, while tho cost ot the railroads Is about une hundred and forty mtlUoua. This us eDOugb to show the importance o( watching tho railroad legislation in our State with jealous eyes. One of the railroad laws pa-sod last session exempted the .-iackeu a Harbor and Saratoga Itailroad Company's lands from taxation. No more villainous act was passed during that memorable session. The bill was very carefully worded, and exempts all tho lands of the company, by whatever name it may hereafter be known, whether suih lands are now owned or horcafter acquired, from all taxation for twenty two years. The company purchased from the State three hundred thousand acres, at live cents an ai re. They have since acquired more. By the act in question?chapter Ms of the laws of the last session?these lands are, as before slated, exempted from State and county taxes for twenty two years. Now. these lauds will be assessed by the Assessors, and will be returned to the Comptroller's Otllc.e as unpaid non-resident taxes. The amount of Slate aud county tax will bo advanced by the Slate. When the lime for the tax sale comes, the exemption under the act of last session will be claimed, and the lands of course cannot, bo sold, nor the amount advanced recovered by the state. Thus, the Mute will lone, not ouly tbe Stale tax on tbe lauds, but also tfie amount or county tax whicn she will have ad vanceu to the county. Probably Judge Stow, the independent anti-railroad Senator, will look into these sugges lions. A suit is just now pending which is of some interest to you New York tax |s?ycrs.
