The steamer Yankee, Cspl. Kastmau, arrived at the Navy Yard to-day, having left York river at six o'clock yesterday morning. Tbe Yankee went about eight miles up the York river On Sunday night, and anchored off Gloueoeter Point, vrhero tbe atenmers Peuobacot, Marblehoad and Wachusett wore already lying. The rebel batteries at the Point, which are said to be very extonsive, mounting mostly 100-pound rifled guns, tried the range of their guns on the steamers about throe o'clock yesterday afternoon, the -shot failing very little short of tbe Marblehead. Tho vessels then dropped down the river, and about throe miles below the Poiut discovered a party of rebels building a battery on tbe north bank, on .whom the Yankes opened flro at a distance of throe-quarters of a mile. Tbe rebels seemed loth to abandon their works, and although the shells of tbe Yankeo fell in their midst, they did not leave the vicinity, but took refuge in the woods sad behind some neighboring log house*. The Yankee, after firing some sixty or seventy shot and Shell during an hour and a hair, left the scene, the other beats having come up to do their share. As the Yankee wan leaving, the boats or the Marble^ ftead were on the way to the shore to burn the houses behind which the rebels had taken refuge. During the engagement a battery up the river flred soaieeight or ten shot, but they fell far short of them. The guu( in the batteries at Gloucester Point are said to be only ins position to reach vessels below them in the twiddle of the river, and light draught vessols can apgiroach within a short distanco of tho Point with safety by hugging the shore.

It intimate# that the Monitor, Naugatuck and Galena, all arsaorad vessels, might easily come up James river, and, by their Invulnerability and powerful guns, take and keep possession of the city. To prevent such a result, it proposes that the channel of James river shall be ob tructed by stone, which it says Is abundant lor the purpose, and should be used at once. NEWS FROMJFORTRESS MONROE.

The Cabinet meeting to-day was stormy, and new phases and slumbering prejudices are suid to have been developed; but the llrmni'B.s of tbo President for what he believes to be the best Interests or the nation, supported by the Secretary of .state and Postmaster General, amidst all the complications that existed prevailed over all opposition. THE TAX BILL. It has been positively stated that the Secretary of the Treasury baa prepared a substitute for the Tax bill, to be offered in the Senate. This Is an error. The Secretary has only furnished much information to Senators tn regard to matters of importance tending to perfect the Tax bill, and many amendments will doubtless be based upon this information and meet his approval. The Finance Committee of the Senate are industriously collecting, from every accessible source, facts and figures to aid them in ascertaining the best mode of raising a sufficient revenuoj with the loast oppression of the people or interference with the general trade of the country. The opinion prevails that it will be best to approximate as nearly as possible to the English plan of placing high taxes upon only a few articles, and those exclusively luxuries, such as malt liquors,spirits, horses, carriages, railways, he. The ctubus statistics furnish a basis for this system of taxation. It is showa,for instance, that there was produced in 1860 about eightyeight mlllionsjof gallons of distilled liquors for home consumption, exolusive of tha amount exported. It is strongly urgod that a high tax should be imposed upon this, and lu order to simplify tho tax and insurs its realization by the government at tha loast cost of collection, It ahould be applied solely to the crude spirits, as it goes from the still, instead of attempting to follow it through all the processes to which it may subsequantly be subjectod. It is estimated that a revenue of arty, or oven a hundred millions of dollars, may be thus realized, without injury to any branch of trade, unit with little trouble to the eorernment. APPOINTMENTS CONFIRMED BT THE SENATE. The Senate in executive session to day confirmed the following nominations:? Governor E. D. Morgan, of New York to be Major General.

THE ABOLITION OP SLAVERY IN THB DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA?WHAT THE N Eli ROES THINK OF IT. Tho ardent expectation of the freedom shriekers, in re. ference to the District of Columbia Emancipation bill, have not yet be?u realized. The President still has the bill under consideration. What he will do with it, is still a matter of speculation. It is known only that, while he favors the abstract proposition of abolishing slavery in the District of Columbia, the details of this bill aro not altogether satisfactory, and it is gravely doubted if they are constitutional. The most intelligent of the negroes, whom it is ostensibly intended to benefit, deprecate its approval. They contend that, instead of enlarging, it actually curtails their freedom, and deprives them of privileges they have hitherto enjoyed. They fear that as free ne gn.os they will be debarred from passing out of the Die. li let, or from one Slato into another,and that they will be entirely excluded front nearly all the States in the Union. They fall to appreciate this nominal freedom, which iu reality abridges their privileges. C0XUKB3S AND ITS AUJOURNRKNT. """ It will be remeinhere<l that a resolution passed the House (reported from the Committee on Ways and Means; for a Una! adjournment of the present session of Congress (with tho concurrence of the Senate) on the third Monday in May next. On an investigation of tb? subject it appears that so l'nr exclusively as the Houxo is concerned, Congress conla adjourn in ten days without detriment to the country's interests. Although there Is a vast number of bills (both Senate and House i on the Diss, still Hie passage of but a \ery few is absolutely necessary at this lime. THB UOMJMTTKM ON OOVKRNMKNT CONTRACTS. Ill the course of a week tho above named committeo will make an extensive report on the rsault of its labors from the commencement of tho present session up to this time. It will be one of the most important reports, in a bnancial and Contracting point of view, over submitted to thif or any past Congress. Accompanying tho report will bean immense amount of evidence; and this evidence will not only be manifest in facts aud figures of an interesting character, but also diaclosa shame, and contrivances of the most ingenious kind; aud in seme instances designs frustrated, and plans an J operalions unqualifiedly discreditable to the participants, and deservedly nisritorioua of punlshueut to meroly professed patriots. He'ore making tho report the committeo will have to finish some of its labors in New York and Pennsylvania, and especially in HarrlsburgTh? rotor! will not hi no much fr? imtilv n?nctir* in lay hare operatiohe, and leave it lo tiie good sense of Congress end the discriminating eye or the people to discover where "fault Boding'' ia neceseary?where the 'found wanting" exlata?and the pnolahment, la whatever form deemed prudent, la applicable. Since the tune cf making its la at report the committee hae been eery bually engaged la lie legitimate bualuesi; aod, atraage as It may ?eem, lie compouent parte, in subd.visieaa, have been as often welcomed to their task aa the opposite. Judging from the private remarks made by persons competing such committee, they have had no pleaaing task to perform. Iho "Zhou art the man'' la no gilded compliment (?) to iboae who would fain ate such wise man from the Kaal end the Weat and elsewhere afar off. It ie presumed that tba committee a members, Individually, have made bnt few frlenda and many enemtee, In a eomparativ# point of view. One of the members of this committee waa desirous of ronaecllog lla invaatigatlona with iha doings of your Custom House; but oa an Investigation of the matter it waa made evident that the committee waa not created for auy such purpoae, and hence it it, no report wlU be made in the premises, ea stated aforesaid, auch invtstigallons very properly belonging to the enpervitlon of another regular committee, or the Committee en Commerce.

Thirty-Seventh Annual Exhibition of the National Academy of Design. The exhibition for the present year opened on Monday laat, under circumstances that augured favorably for its character. The forced idleness to which our artists have been reduoed for the last twelve months, by tho almost total suspension of orders, afforded them plenty of leisure for the preparation of show pictures. What thay could- not gain in money thay could by this means, at least, gain in fame. There was this additional inducement for n little extra exertion, that their works were to have the advantage of a new and mora suitable locale for exhibition (the Derby Gallery), where there would he less opportunity for the Hanging Committee to exhibit their partialities in favor of particular artiste than la the old Tenth street building. Wo regret to say that these anticipations have been disappointed. Wo scarcely recollect a year in which the works of our artUU have exhibited less progress! venass as a wholo, and In which, as regards individuals usually distinguished for their industry, less ambition to excel has been displayed. We can only account for this by the assumption that the aputhy and hopelessness whioh up to a recent period had seized upon all the productive classes of oar community,from the gigantic aspect of the rebellion, Virara sen tin 11V ahhrSbri in Ktr t ha nsAfuooInn K HEKALD, WEDNESDA1 only relief from the prostration they auffer, there hu been in this behalf no ooncert of action, without which it ta next to impossible to push through Congress say other than political measures. One-tenth part of the nativity exhibited in regard to abolition schemes to Iceep up agitation, if applied to the bankrupt law, would long ago have secured its passage through both Houses and emancipated the comuieroial enterprise of the country from the fetters by which it is bound. An effort is to be made in the Senate to get a bankrupt bill through; but it will share the fate of the House bill, if those interested in its passage do not without delay exert themselves unremittingly to insure its passage SENATOR M'DOUOAL'S SPEUt'S ON TBR CABS OP OEM. TOMB. Senator HcDougars speech upon bis resolution for information in relation to the arrest of General Charles 1*. Stone produced a marked sensation to-day. It aroused Senator Wade to such a degree that be boiled over with indignation, and replied with much asperity to the remarks of Senator McDougal in reference to the Committee on the Conduct of the \^pr, of which Mr. Wade is chair, man. He maintained that the committee lead never stabbed a man in the dark, and had kept inviolate the terrible secrets that bad come into tneir possession through their Investigations. His reply to th# argument that General Stone's rights, under the constitution, the common law and the military law of the country, had been violated, was, that the government, in this great exigency ie bound to protect itself, and that the constitution is vtrturally repealed until the government has become able to restore its authority in tt^e rebellious Stales. General Stone's record; as presented by Senator McDougal, certainly entitles him to a spasdy trial, and if bs 1* guilty of treason, aftsr having rendered eo much patriotic service, he ought to be executed with the least possible delay. In the course of bis remarks Senator Wado said that he did not know by whose order General Stone waa arrested, but the Committee on the Conduct of the War had obtained testimony against him that would warrant the arrest. OUR RELATIONS WITH MEXICO. The President to-day, In response to a resolution of the House, transmitted voluminous document*, embracing all the correspondence which has taken place since June last, relative to the affairs Of Moxico. From a hasty glance at their contents it appears that on tho 3d of that month Mr. Seward, In writing to Minister Corwin, informs him that from intelligence wearing an air of au tbenticlty, a design exists on the part of the insurgents of this country to gain possession of Lower California, and that tha President ex. pacts him to exercise his beet judgment not only to thwart this scheme, but to prorent rebel armed veseols from finding shelter in Mexican ports, and from carrying arms through the territory of that republicThe defence of the Mexioan sovereignty is urged upon the attention of that government, and the declaration made that the United States does not desire to acquire any part of Mexico. On the 0th of June Mr. Corwin tuforme Mr. Seward that it had been his constant endeavor since hie arrival at the city of Mexico to possess the Mexican mind of the true chuso of our difllcultiee, and thus enable them to estimate the dangor which would result from any unfavorable termination of them. He was quite eure that whilst llto Mexican government would endeavor to preserve peaceful relatione with all I European Powers on fair terms, it regarded the United States as its true and only reliable friend in any struggle which might involve its national oxisteoce. Toward the close of July Mr. Corwin, In the course of his despatch, incidentally remarks that Europe is quite willing to see us humbloJ, and will not fail to take advantage or our embarrassmeuts to execute purposes of which she would not have dreamed had we remained at peace. This was said with reference to the intervention by England, France and Spain in the aflairs of Mexico. Mr. Seward writing to Mr. Corwin, on the 'Jd et September, assures him the President greatly desired that Iho political status of Mexico as an independent nation should be permanently maintained; and in December, alter speaking or the Joint intervention, informs him that the government cannot consent to his returning from Mexico as he desired. It is Known that Mr. Corwin negotiated a treaty with Mexico; but the Senate re* jected it on the ground that it was not advisable to assume, as was proposed, any portion of the principal or interest of the debt of *Mexioo, or which would require the concurrence of European Powers. In communicating this result to Mr. Cerwin, Mr. Seward says, April 3:?"Under these circumstances, the President is unable to suggest to you any other mode for contributing to the deliverance of our sister republic from the einburrassmeuis by which it is surrounded, which will he acceptable to the Senate. Meanwhile, I desire to direct your most eartiost attention to the necessity of guarding, if possible, against any such plsdge of ths resources of Mexico to foreign Powers as might affect our cause injuriously, or impair the ability of the people (or Mexico to sustain the free government established by their own choice. You will not leave the government of Mexico in doubt for a moment that the government of tne United States ere not indideront concerning the perils by which they are menacod. " SEMI-MONTHI.T PUBLICATIONS OF THE FINANCIAL CONDITION OF TUK NATION. The resolution recently introduced requiring semimonthly otllc.ial publications of the receipts and disbursements of the Treasury, ia approved by tho Secretary of the Treasury as sound in principle; but it is represented to be quite Impracticable at a time wbou it is deemed necessary to keep secret the military and naval O|ierationa of the government. Even if all the data for such a statement as would bo satisfactory and iutolligible were always within roach of the Treasury Department, instead of having to be groped after in ail the ramilicalious of the other departments, they could not now be published without disclosing projected military opo ration*.

Whatever could ba doaa to creato artlflciel distinctions betweau the works of tha exhibitors and to depress merit, whila uudua prominence has boon given to pictures remarkable for the absence of it, hoe been accomplished. By converting into a sort of ovon tho front gallery, from which the light of day is but imperfectly excluded, and which consequently struggles for ascendency with that of tho gasburners, a locut penituli* has beon provided, to which we need not say all those who do not Dnd favor in the oyes of privileged mediocrity are remorselessly consigned. Haviug said thus much of tho manner of arrangement, let us now examine the pictures themselves. No. 1. A portrait of a gentleman, by Saintin, Is capitally drawn and forcible in expression, but harsh in coloring. The position, too, is stiff, and the general effect of the picture is, consequently, not pleasing. No. 4. ''ASleighrlde in Broadway," by Alex. Vion, ia a clever little picture, thoroughly French in its spirit and handling. No. 8. A portrait or a lid/, by 9. Mount, N. A., la detestable in coloring and worse in drawing. It contrasts unhappily with a small portrait (No. 6), by a young girl of ssrenteen, Miss Ida Powell, which is placed in juxtaposition with it. This latter picture, considering it is a first effort, is astonishingly maturo in treatment. Tha head, that of a child (the artist's brother), Is beautifully modelled,and there is asweetnossof tono in the whole picture which is in harmony with the subjectNo. 0. A winter scene, by R. Gignoux, N. A. A charming landscape, clear, crisp and bright in its efibcts, and fuller of detail than is usual with the winter scenes ol this artist. No. 10. "Un Carro de Sevila," by Goorgo II. Hall, is one of thoso studies of Spanish lire on which this artisl is now almost entirely employing his pencil. In group ing,atmosphere, and local features generally, the sketct is faithfully characteristic. There Is a conyentionalitj about the faees, however, which detracts from thes< merits, and the eCTect is further spoiled by the woodei aspect of the mules attachod to the wagon, which look ai If I hey had been copiod from a toy shop. No. 14. A gentleman at full length, by Thomas Hicks la the bibliophile here deliueated with appropriate surroundings there Is no difficulty in recognizing Dr. Cogs well, of the Astor Library. The likonosa is excellent, and the picture generally is clearly and effectively painted. If thero is any fault it Is in the redundancy of color given to the flesh tints. No. 16. "The March of Silenus," by W. U. Beard. A gro tesquo and clover conception, showing on the part of tb artist a thorough acquaintance with zoological anatomy without which it wotfld be impossible for him to givi such vitality to those eccentric groupings. It dltftri from the tieatment of the ssme subjects by ths old mas tars iu the fsct that its flgurss of wild animals, no maltw how exaggerated their poeiltoa,are always conscientious ij iwurun. No. 21. "Amain. on lbs ('out of Naples," by W. 8. Ha seltin". Tbore is a glittering unsubstantialily about thit landscape which, however correct it may b? in oertaic conditions of tbo Neapolitan atmoapbara, ia vary unaatis factory in a picture. There ia no point of raposa for the eye, a groat fault in a work in which euch dazzling effects are introdnevtf. No. 22. ''St. Michael and Satan Contending for tho Body of Moeee.'' An anibitioua subject indifferently treated No. 28. "A Lady," by It. M. Staigg. A pleasing and sketchily painted portrait in the artial'.- beat stylo. No. 22. "Pleasant Remembrances? era and Wood' cork," by A. K. Taite. So far u the denotation of anima bft> ia concerned, Mr. Taite bae few auperiors. We could tvieh that his landscapes had a little mora irealineaa and naturalness. Nothing, fur instance, ian be tamer than that in which he hua introluoeJ tho present sporting episode. No. 23. "A View In Switzerland," by R. (ilgnoux,N>. A. We like tins laatlscape less than the one by the same ar list that wc hare just noticed. 11 is, however, effective )y treated, and forme nn agreeable pendant to the latter. No. 34. "Sunlight and Shadow," liv A. ttiersladt. Thb is otto of the very best pictures in the collection, it shows a skilinlness iu the management of effects and a strength or color such as we did not give Mr. lliorstadt crodit fur. Not lung can be happier linn the choice o( scene ibat he hie made, so perfectly in keeping is it with bis main idea. The front of a country church, with a partial view into its Interior, and the rays of the sun stealing softly through the deep shadow* coat by the old tre"s that surround it, gliding portions of the columns of a bulustrado thai extend* half way across the building, make up the features of this admirable picture. We forget: there is a Agora of an old woman sou ted upon the stops of the church, with e child sleeping upon her lap; but these add to, rather than detract from, the reposo and stillness of the scene. We congratulate Mr, Bieistadt on the genuine suecou that he has achieved in this picture. No. 37. "A (iltmpee of larks Cham plain," by Shattuck, is charmingly treated, and ia oueol' the most pleading efforts of this elever artist's pencil. No. 38. " Itinerants," by Tbomae I,e Clear. A capital picture. tve a?? in it not only the result of attent ion to the general effect, but of the careful elaboration of detail*. A a much atudy evidently hna been beatowod on each figure of the group aa if it were to farm a aeparate picture in itaelf. The boy playing the tiolm la inimitable,and would not be unworthy of a place In one of TVilkle's tableaux. The aentlment of which he ia tb* embodiment contraata charmingly w 1th the coquettish arcbneaa of the girl who acenmpaniee hint, and who ia beraelf arreated In her rounds among the byatandera by the stralna that bold them charmed listeners. In tone the ptcturo ia all that could be deelred. The background la a little too much broken up for our taatei but where there ia eo much to praise It la hardly fair to suggest aa a blemish what other* may, perhaps, deem conducive to the general effect. No. 44. "TbeHon. Hiram Barney," by W. rage. TV*are disposed to pass by with indulgence the eccentricities ol an artist who errs from too much attrition. In seeking to treat a modem portrait claasiealty wo should, however, look for ooniietenry from a painter like Mr. rego, who has imbibed his tdtas from the very fountain bead of classic inspirations. Nothing can ho in worse taste then the accessories of this portrait. They present us with a melange of Corinthian columns, teeaelated pavements, showy wall paper, aed Bowery furniture of the most approved pattern. In point of color the picture la without force. Mr. Pag* has spent so inuob of his time Imitating the works of tb* old misters that he has ended by adopting their faded tints as the media of natural effects. Ills portraits have, consequently, none ol the consistency of lleeh and blood, and appear to be dissolving through the canvnss rather tlmn to stand out from It. It Is a pity to see sa fin# an artist lose himself in tills manner. Il? has forgotten that in art is tn evei y Ihmg elae tho world movta, and that the pilntei LE SHEET. no nnr# Uiau ths politician can oppose birriir lo tin progress of human idtvi Mo. 48. "light Triumphant," by George Inaess A pic. ture of viuleut etfucLs, too violent to bo agreeable or evcu natural. The eticceaa which Mr. Inneaa has met with in the delineation of unusual phases in the aspects of na ture temple him at times into extravagances To thit class the present work belong* No. 63. "A Skye Terrier," by W.J Hays Clever and soailiugly forcible. No. 55. "Kvangoliue," by KJwiu White The line in I/tngfellow's poem describing Evangeline as straying in churchyards, and gazing on crosses and tornhsiouea, has been sel'-eted as the subject of this picture. It is sombre, but ofTectire, and carries out the description as poetically aa it is expressed in the original. No. 58. "Chincellor Ferris," by D. Huntington. Tbo tone and general treatment of this picture are exceedingly agreeable, and impart to it n value whioh n more portrait would uot possess. No. 69. "Fitting Out Moses for ths Fair." A. HRichie. A clever oomposilion, rented with a nice appreciation of the subject, and carefully handled. It is a pity that the artist did not give himself u little more room on tho cauvass. It would have enhanced the value of the figures. No. 64. "Laborer's Dessert." A happy idea imperfectly, but not altogether unsuccessfully, wrought out. No. 70. " Torre del Schiavi." 8. K. Gilford. Ths wtid scenery and peculiar atmosphere of the Roman Campagna aco capitally rendered in this picture. No. 73. Scene near Lewsllyn Park, Orange county, N. J., by T. B. Thorpe. An effective sketch, highly creditable to an amatqm- artist. No. 98. ? Wind River Mountains, Nebraska Territory." A. Bierstadt, N. A. This landscape has merit; but it is wanting in that strength of color for which we have just given credit to Mr. Bierstadt in his other pictura. No. 104. "Sunday Morning in the Camp or the Seventh regiment, near Washington, D. 0.," by S. R. Gtfford, N. A. A most interesting picture. The landscape is charming, commanding a long stretch down the Potomao, and the incidonts of the camp ground are capitally handled. We Qud that although we have only got thus far through the catalogue we have exhausted the space allotted to ua for to-day. We shall, however, resume at tho earliost opportunity our examination of the remaining pictures. The Navy. Gaijhka.?This new Iron-clad sloop-or-war got up steam yesterday morning and proceeded on a trial trip from the Continental Iron Werks at Green point to the Navy Yard, Brooklyn?a distance of about three miles. At half-past uine A. 51. she gracefully moved from her dork. no&uiag upstream, arniu the lolling or steamboat bells, tho blowing of steam whistles on both sides of the river, and the huzzas of thousands who congregated on the diffe ent docks and boats along the river. She proceeded up stream for about half a mile, when her course was altored, and with the greatest ease she rounded and prooooded to the Navy Yard at the rate of about six miles per hour. She minds her helm beautifully, and her maf chiuory worked with the utmost satistaction. As she was not at all in sailing trim, this trial, although highly satisfactory, is not a fair test of her sailing qualities, and her officers feet confident that when in proper trim she will at least make ten miles per hour. The Oalena is one of tho threo iron-clad vessels contracted for by the Secretary of the Navy, under authority of the act of Congress, approved on the 3d of August, 1831, the Monitor and Kensington being the other two. Having already given a description of her armor in the columns of the Huuld, we will merely state that she was designed by Mr. Julius Patterson, and constructed at Mystic, Connecticut, by Messrs. Mlxon, Fish k Co., and the general superintendence of the work was conducted by Naval Constructor Rook. After being launched she was sent to the Continental Iron Works,Oreenpoint, where she received her armor. 8be is not at all like the Monitor, being simply an iron-plated screw steamer of great strength, and modelled with a view to speed. Her dimensions are ?length over all, 208 feat; braadth of beam, 36 feet; depth of hold, 13K feet, and 1,000 tons burthen. She is pierced for eighteen guns, but will not carry mora than aix. Sha is now lying undar the shears at the Navy Yard, receiving her armor and outfit; but as there is considerable work to be done on her yet she will not probably be roady for sea before Saturday or Sunday. She is officered as follows:? Commander?Alfred Taylor. Lieutenant and Executive Officer?L. H. Newman. Acting Matter*? Arthur W. Emerson and Samuel B. Washburn. Auittant Surgeon?R. E. Van Qresen.
