The TarliTand the Revenue*
The receipts of Revenue from Customs at this
port since the 1st of January last have been as
In 1841 In 1343.
Januarv.$1,876,015 $548,056
February.2,169,110 492,216
March, to 16th. 983,676
Total, 2J months..:.$5,029,401
This sum will undoubtedly be swelled to at
least Five and a Half Millions of Dollars for this
single port at the close of the quarter, two weeks
hence; and, as the collections at all. the other
ports cannot fall far below the amount realized
here, the total Revenue of the United States from
Customs only cannot fall below Ten Millions
for the current quarter, or at the rale of Forty
Millions per annum. But we do not suppose the
receipts will be as heavy throughout as in the first
quarter of the year. They will probably (if the
Tariff is let alone) range from Thirty-two to
Thirty-FIVE Millions, defraying all the current
Expenditures of the Government, and affording
Ten to Fifteen Millions surplus to be employ?
ed in redeeming the remaining Treasury Notes
and about half paying off the Nat ional Debt.
?4 Ah but,' says a triumphant Free Trader,
' you are calculating on heavy imports, in spite
of your Protective Tariff!' No, sir, we arc not.
We are anticipating that our imports for the year
will range from One Hundred to One Hundred
and Ten Millions?a fair ami sale amount, which
will be overbalanced by our exports, and allow
us to bring back a considerable amount in specie
or (what wo greatly prefer) a still greater amount
in our dishonored and depreciated State Bonds.
We appeal, then, to considerate and candid men
of all parties to stand forth tn favor of the policy
of 1 letting well alone: The present Tariff, it is
demonstrated, does not cut off Foreign Trade, but
steadies and invigorates it. It does not diminish
the Revenue, but greatly increases it, so that our
entire National indebtedness may be paid off in
three years at farthest if it is simply let ahme.
That it does not cripple Industry or diminish the
rewards of Production, let the universality of Em?
ployment and the abundant strikes for higher
wages ans wer. Then why should the Tariff be
overthrown ? Can any man imagine
The iti - in Spll'lt.
The Whigs every where will rejoice to sec the
quiet and determined manner in which the Loco.
Foco bill to repeal the already suspended Land I
Distribution, so indecently rushed through the
House, Mias, as soon as reached in the Senate,
laid on the table, by a clean party vote
Wc trust all the violent party measures
of the House, and especially the down*with
the-Tariff bill, will be served the same way.
If the Whig minority in the House arc al?
lowed a fair chance to debate this or any other
measure, let the same courtesy be extended to
the minority in the Senate ; but whenever any
measure is forced through the House, in utter
disregard of the rights of the Whig Members, let
it be nailed to the table Of the Senate the mo?
ment it reaches that body. Wc beg leave to as?
sure our friends at Washington that the spirit of
the Whig party, every day rising, already de?
mands the most determined and resolute action
at head-quartere. At such a crisis, hesitation,
timidity, divided counsels at Washington, will
exert a most mischievous influence over the
whole country. But give us union, energy, and
a straight-ahead course there, and they will^fe.
sure enthusiasm, confidence, victory, every
where. We arc impelled to these reflections by
the noble course of the Senate on Friday, but
they apply no less to the Future than the Past.
[LTWe like exceedingly the look of the Political
contest in Pennsylvania.?The Loeo-Foco House
has passed resolutions in tavor of a Taritl* for
Protection without regard to Revenue. The
journals of tbat party are engaged in personal
attacks on the Whig candidate for Governor,
calling him stupid, ignorant, incapable. On the
other hand, the Whig papers let the Loco candi.
dates alone, and aim their broadside* at Loco
Foco principles and measures. This is every
way wholesome. Friends in Pennsylvania ! if
you only realize how the election of MarKLE
would ring through the land, your exertions will
be unparalleled.

Mr. Melville** Oration.
Our amiable but rather flighty young fricn?
Cansevoori Melville, Esq. in the course of hit
P'jctic but vapory Oration to the Loco-Focos 01
Friday evening, indulged in the following pei
sonal reminiscence:
?' As for myself, I num.- from t M<><:k. the women a* Well ?
the men of which hare, from the first organization oi pi
u;an ifested apreference for and a sympathywith the Orut
ciatic canse. (Coud cheers.)?'
Our friend would have spoiled tiii? story if b<
had stated that his paternal grandfather, Majoi
Melville, one of the famous 'Boston Tea-Pai ty:
was a Whig to the last, and was turned out of a
petty office in his old age therefor, by this very
Jackson-Van B?ren dynasty which his grandson
w as here glorifying.
But h< ar the Orator again :

Wc intended to make some personal applica
lion of this dignified argument, but it might be
thought ill-natured, bo we won't. If other folks
who know Mr. M. choose to be less fastidious,
how can wc help it ?

Ohio.?After all, the expectations of the pas.
sage of Bank bills by this Legislature arc frustrat?

the two General Banking Laws known as ' Dun?

the Franklin, Chilicothe, Hocking Valley, Stem
benville and McConnelsville Banks, by a strict
party vote?19 to 11.

Loco-Focoism.?The editor of the N. O. Cou?
rier some time ago procured the publishing of cer?
tain legal advertisements, having underbid his
cotcmporaries, and offered Jo publish them for
three cents per 100 words. A few days since,
however, the Loeo-Foco Senate very accommo?
datingly passed a resolution allowing him twenty
live cents per ION words for publishing these ve?
ry same advertisements ! This is the way the
Loco-Foeos flagellate his Satanic Majesty around
the base of a tree, in Louisiana.

I5v This Morning's ftlail.
j ht Question of Annexing Texas to the
t I?tt?;il States.
Fiotnoar Special Correspondent.
W&swsGToy, March 16.
Dear Sir:?1 sec by a letter from this city in the
?? North American" of Philadelphia that the wri
tcr states he has it on good authority that Mr.
Tyler has actually signed a Treaty for the An
nexation of Texas. Now this statement is of
j'Cat importance for several reasons. The Cor;
respondent of theuNorth American" is a Mr.
J >hnson,an assistant editor of the "National In?
telligencer." the same gentleman who acted as
bearer of the challenge from Shriver to Wellet ?
the " Intelligencer" is always earliest and most
accurately informed here of all affairs concerning
Mexico through the Mexican Officials here :
and Mr. Juhnson is also intimate with many
Senators and official character* wb<> might
h Lve famished him with the information.?
But on the other hand, let me ask, is it like?
ly that the President lias already signed a
Treaty for the Annexation of Texas, when the
fact is that Gen. Henderson is now on his way
from Texas to this country for the purpuse of.com.
pleting the Treaty for the Annexation of T< x
which Mr. Upshar begun 1 and it is supposed that
in less than a month after his arrival the Treaty
will be signed on the part of both Governm. tits
and sent to the Senate.
Of all the ugly questions that have aiisen lately
this Texas question looks likely to be the most
troublesome. During this week it has been intro?
duced into both branches of Congress in a tangi?
ble form, for the fir.-t time'. In the Senate, on
Tuesday, Mr. Buchanan to the astonishment of
every body, said that he would not express his
views on the annexation of Texas now ; but that
he considered the Almighty had given to the peo
pie of the United States a direct mission to goon and
take possession of all Texas, Mexico, California,
and Oregon ; that they might carry civilization,
Christianity and a Republican form of Govern?
ment there?and that all this would $ie done
within the next 30 or 40 years and perhaps
In the House, several times during the session,
the Southern Members. Georgia, Alabama, Mis?
sissippi, Louisiana and South Carolina,) have ex?
pressed openly their determination to have Texas
j annexed to the Union during this Session. They
! have again and again declared to the Western
men that they could not get and should not have
a bill passed to settle Oregon, unless one to annex
Texas was coupled with it; and the day before
yesterday, Mr. Garrett Davis, in advocating the
continuance of West Point Academy, declared
that as it was now the settled policy of this Gov?
ernment to annex Texas, he thought that as be?
yond doubt this would involve us in a war with
one or two countries, we ought to strengthen the
Army as much as possible. Again, Mr. Holmes,
(the particular and personal friend of Calhoun,
and a lair exponent of his views,) declared on the
same day on the same question, that he was wil?
ling to risk a war with Mexico, but that the South
would have Texas, and therefore it was neccs
sary to train officers at Wot Point to be ready to
drill the militia of the country whom a war would
??all into active service?giving as a reason that
England would not. go to war with as on that
ground, but that she would do all the trading in
her vessels: therefore, the sooner we got through
the war with Mexico the belter for our commerce.
Now, is not all this cool '
On the strength of all this, Mr. Winthrop-,
who declared his belief that th'1 people of this
country were to be taken by surprise on the Tex?
as question, yesterday offered his proposition to
suspend the rules that be might present a resolu?
tion declaring that no proposition to annex Texas
ought to be made or assented to by tills Govern?
ment, and fixing next Wednesday as the day tt
consider this. The Ayes and Noes on this showed
40 for suspending the rules, and 122 against it

Now this list requires some little explanation.
Of course it was by no means a test vote, as to
who is and who is not in favor of Texas except
as far as the Ayes are concerned. Many who
voted No" told me afterwards that they were
opposed to taking the measure up out of order;
Willis Green of Ky. gave this as his reason,
Dunlap of Maine, Fish, Sykes, and others.?
While at the same time, several Southern men
after the vote was taken declared that they now
considered Texas "as'good as annexed to the
United States ;"' that so large a majority was
somewhat indicative of the final result; and that
out of the l'2'2 there were not 40 who would vote
against it at the right time. At any rate, it will
be no harm for the constituents of the Northern
gentlemen who voted " Aye " to drop them a line
indicative of their desires on this most vitally
important matter.
One thing, in conclusion, I can assure you of.
The President, Mr. Calhoun, the member? of the
House from ali the States i have named above?

Cedar. L86; New Market, o5? total, 810 votes.
Iu the Northern Liberties, our friends were not
upon the alert, and the Loco-Focos succeeded in
electing a majority of the Judges and Inspectors.
In the District of Spring Garden, the Loco-Foco?
ha\e carried the Fust and Third Wards, and the
Whigs the Fourth. The Native Americans elected
their entire ticket in ihe Second Ward, and polled 50
votes in the Third and 100 in the Fourth.

Disgraceful.?A mostsbameful fight took place
at the New-Market Ward poll about 11 oxlock on
Friday nieht. Several of the Native American can?
didates, nil of wh<>m were Locos, took a prominent
, p.trt. and received a severe beating. The origin ol
; the fracas was the abuse heaped upon the natural?
ized citizens by tho>e who at tunes profess the
strongest attachment. The feeling exhibited on thi*
occasion was of a bitter and virulent character.
At the First Ward poll, Souihwark, a serious af?
fair was threatened in consequence of a gross out- -

of the Ward, by a man named Calhoun, whose life
would have probably been jeopardized had not the

TIicSenate was not in session to-day.
In the House, ih'^ report of Mr. Simons of Ct.
from the Select Committee for the investigation
of alleged abuses in the contracts for engraving
and lithographing for the House for the 25th und
26th Congresses came up?the resolution with
which it concludes providing for the appointment
of a Standing Committee of three upon engrav?
ing to whom shall be referred all propositions for
engraving, lithograping, &c.?previous to the
work being ordered by the House.
This subject gave rise loa debate ol an hour or
au hour and a half?the rules having been sus
pended at the close of the morning hour for the
disposition of the matter?in which Mr. Simons
deprecated the looseness and abuses which had
heretofore existed in the contracts for engraving,
and pointed out several instances in which several
hundreds of dollars more had been paid than their
execution could have been obtained lor. Mr.
Adams called for the names of the individuals im.
plicated; but Mr. S. declined to give them, say?
ing, if the Committee was appointed and it was
then the pleasure of the House, they wouldrcport
them. The resolution, ordering a Standing Com?
mittee on Engraving, was finally adopted.
Air. Adams moved a suspension of the rules for
the reception of a resolution, to which objection
had been made, calling for information from the
President as to the circumstance : of the Dorr in.
! surrection in Rhode Island, the measures taken
by him to quell it, ?.Ve. Refused : Veas 7",
Nays 62.
After debate j two or three private bills were
passed ; one was reconsidered and rejected : and
the House?or ihe mere skeleton of the House?
not discovering in the satisfaction of the many
long-deferred claims of the worthy and indigent
soldiers, seamen and others, sufficient importance
I to deserve their attention, adjourned at about hall
. past two o'clock, unembarrassed even by the ac?
customed calls for the Yeas and Nays of Messrs.
Cave Johnson, Wentwortii, Hale, ami others,
who boast so loudly of their patriotic demonstra?
tions in that way upon ordinary occasions of dull
and useless debate. AltGUS.
Drowned.?A carpenter, named John Lane,
stated to have belonged to New-York, a passt n.
gcr on board the schooner Star. (laptain Thomas,
from Charleston to Philadelphia, jumped over?
board in the Cull Stream, on the night of the 29th
of February, and was drowned. He was labor?
ing under temporary insanity at the time. He has
left a wife and family.

tied to the thanksiif members of this Legislature,
