The developments brought to light in the examination, yesterday and to-day, of Mr. Bean, before the Covode Investi gating Committee, are of the most as tounding character, and ehow an extent of corruption on the part of the Admin istration that will atanls the nation. Mr. Bean waa aasistsnt clerk to Col.

He reluc tantly testified that ba received from Cor nelius Wendell, lets publisher of tbe Un ion, and Printer to Congress, tbe sum of five thousand dollsrs for bis services aad influence amongst members to carry the English bill. He also testified that he beard Corneliua Wendell ssy that the bill must be csrried if it cost a bnshsl basket full of gold. Mr. Bean is at present edi tor of a Democratic paper published at Fremont Ohio. The Committee have the evidence be fore them that a notorious disbursing sgent of tbe Administration deposited and check! out of tbe Bank of the Metropolis tbe cum of nine hundred and twenty-live thousand dollars, a great portion of wbicn tbe Committee expect to be able to prove, wss checked ont to different persons who were employed to carry the English bill through the House. The bsuk books doea not exhibit the names of the parties, but only show blind initials, signifying such terms as "to save tne union, and "lor Kansas." Inese disclosures hsve crested a flutter in circles which have, thus far, mads light of the expected developments. The Committee, under the lead of their Chairman, have worked with great energy, and, thus fsr, one class of tbe testimony baa opened tbe way for more.

The Washing ton correspondent of the New York Ex press gives tbe following Presidential speculations : - J. be ltepublicsn leadera have settled upon no psrticulsr line of policy to be pursued there, except so fsr aa the Sew ard faction ia concerned. They have de termined to press Mr. Seward at all haz ard, full of the confidence which Weed St Co. have instilled into their minds, that he can be elected over any and all candidates. Among the tickets raot talked of here to be submitted to tbe Con vention are: Seward with Lincoln of Illinois, or Bates of Mo., Cameron of Pa., or Banks of Mass. McLesn with Cameron of Pa., or Day. ton of N. J., or Banks of Mass. Cameron with Lincoln of III., or Lane of Iudiana. ' Bates with Grow of Pa., or Hickman of Pa., or Banks of Msss.

Mr. Fessenden would not accept as I hsve the very best reason to know, Pennington is not tbe tnsa for it, and if any one from Ilhnoie succeeds it must be Lincoln.
