The bill to establish a line of steamers between Califor nia aad (ttmughse was taken up. Mr. Sbwabti, (wtig) of N.

The bill dimes tbe Poetma" .--General to contract, for five >ears, with the lowest bidder, on fair competition, with security for tbe carriage of monthly mail* between Sin Francisco, in California, mid ?hangboe, in Cbina, by the way of the Sandwich Ulands and Japan, in steini vessels of at least 2,000 tons burden, constructed in th? best minie r with regard to speed and safety, at a cost of not more than 9600,000 p? r annum, and directs, also, thai, aav deli eiency of tli> accruing postage to nefray the exjienie of the transaction, shall bo | aid by the Treason of the United States Will the Senate please to consider that we have in operation a very perfect postal system, wuich pervades and penetrates all tbe inhabited region) of our country, while it Is connected by steam mail ve .-el.- with similar European postal systems beyond tbe Atlan tic; and that, by tola national agency, letters, news papers, and commercial, scientific, and political communications of all sort*, are regularly ex changed anting the poople of the United States and tl oae of Western Europe. Will "he Senate please to con sider also, that new efficiency has been recently given to these poatal systems by tho establishment of electric tele graph companies. One hundred millions of letters pans tl rougbonrown post offices annually. Now will tbe Senate onoe more consider that since our poatal system thus du eribed waseel&b! shed, we have forever ceiel to ue merely an Atlantic people, and that on the contrary hare added to the Union one nourishing commercial State of vas'. di mensions, and also a territory which Is soon to become a State on tbe Pacific coast, and that now being em;:ige 1 in filling up the territory thus rounded off, we hive be come a continental American power, hoi ting the same attitude to Asia that ue do to Kurope, and sustainingtlie same relation.-) to the countries on each of those conti nents. What is now proposed is simply to extend our existing postal system aeitward on the l*acitic Ocean so as to exchange intelligence with the nations d veiling on Its islands and coasts, as we already exchaoge intelligence with the nations that dwell on the islancs and coast< of tho Atlantic Ocean The very statement of tho case In this form seems to me a complete demonstration. Never theless, I will briefly illustrate?lir*t, please to lo* at the sabj< ct in its relations tn the people of California and Oregon. Those people morally aDd by virtue of thu con stitution have rights, in ail respects, equal with tlioje which are enjoyed by thei/ felluw c. titans resi >ug on the Pacific cot ^ t. If tbe latter justly enjoy the ai l ol < gil.tr and speedy public malls in their intercourse wil the ?ountries "acco- iblo o>cr the sea which washes their stores, tlicc, unless for ao ae reason tu.i must be ensigns-'1., the former have the right to the aid of reguler an1 ipesoy public .nail* in their ln:e:course with the countries jWaasibln to tbem over t' e p-n which wash'" their bIo.*cj.

I submit, then, that the argument for the present mwmi* ia complete, even while it root* on the ground of itn mi (oitance to tbep?opleof California and Oregon. Hap pily, however, it U easy to show that In this ease, as .? moat others, the local or sectional inter?st* involved ?rw inferior to the general interests of the Union. We have a habit of discussing questions of territorial enlarge ment aid of the extension of political and oommeroitl influences sod connections with as much caution ?nd anxiety as it we enjoyed always free oholce to make, Invent, or control national movements in that direc tion. 1 grant that we do wisely whea we refute to ot mmit ourselves bl ndly to the guidance of tho?e who interpret to us what they are pleased to call oar "manl iest oestiny;" and, vet, air. I con'eaa t bat sometimes, when l ake an outside position and review tho thickly recurring changes through which we have pissed, it aw ma to me that our course haa been shape* I, not so much liy any self-guiding wisdom of oar owo as by a law of progress and develnpement, impressed upon us by na'nre herself When we consider tj?e renist le?8 impulses to expansion which have aovd on tbe | eople of the United States during the Ust half century, together with tbe broad and tempting field which, at the beginning of that period. s'rvtohed out from beneath their feet; and jrben we oonsider, in con n? o'ion with these circumstances, how the cr*-ole popu lation, who an-or led claims to possess that which <hey hud betvint pbjslcdly and intellectually unable to de ft nil, and how 1-ranee, consum-d by anarchy, and yet enkfipeil in u death struggle with despotism, was unable to hold I.ovi*lana; wh'le Spain, enervated hy -ell-ia lul *ence. sustained herelf only by mems of foreign aid. atid was therefore obliged to relinquish Florida and Mexico. It is dtflicult to conceive borwe could have much longer avoided the extemsion whioh his given us a broad region, whose surplus productions must n.tve way through n.anv channels, to We?t?rn as well as hast> ru foreign markets?an extension that has not only brought the Antilles under our constant surveillance, but has also brought us to compaaa the island and th* cm*', of Asia and obliged ub to open passives to them ucross the territoile* of triendly powers, white preparing to mi?e the moie direct and important one over our own bruit, but an yet Imperfectly explored -domtin To what end has this expansion tended from tin- begin ning? Whither does it now tend, if not to c >m merce snd to Influence on the islands and continents which lie between us and the setting aunt' Beyond alt doubt, this Is its tendency, If we have sufficient re sources and adequate vigor and energy to justify as ia er gftgiDg in competition for that commerce. Great Bri tain largely monopolizes it, an1 yet while her territory scarcely equals that of one of our largest Mates. Her native resources are inferior to those of Virginia, or of Pennsylvania, or of Missouri, or of Texas, or of Califor nia alone To speak of no others, Pennsylvania exca vRteH cocl from ncr mines, at a rate of annual increase, which promises one hundred and eighty millions of dol lars for the production or the year 1870 When we refer to >ur sin-cess in driving all competitors from the whaling fields, under either pole, and when we find that our aggregate tonnage employed ia commerce is already ten millions six hundred thousaud tons, and ex ceeds tl at of Great Britaan proper, is it not manifest that oar energy and vigor have been proved beyond dou it arid dispute. Tbe same tendency mark* the poli tical events ?hich are occurring on the other side o' tbe Pacific. Within ten years, China, before elosed against us. has opened to us five principal ports oa various pa ra lit 1s of latitude along her entire coast. Just now a revolution is occurring there; doubtless the re.ult of h-r depai tare from her ancient policy of exclusion, which seems likely to give to us free uccssa to every port of the empire. Even while we have been engaged here in our annual labors, tbe nows comes to us of the opening of three j?its with the addition of convenient stations for repairs and refliting in Japan, and that a messenger is on his way, who brings to us a voluntary and unre stricteo cession of the riawaian Islands. The conclusion ? hid follows the consideration of these events U, that the follcy which the Atlantic nations have pursued so long, although so unsteadily, ia on the ere of it< con summation?that, tbe thousand years are to be fraternal ly te united. there ia no power but ourselves likely to ei'hei co-opfrate or cum pete with Great Britain, in eject ing that consummation. It Is the proper work not of one only, but of both of the branches of that grett family, which is spreading everywhere freedom and free religion, with the capaciout and comprehensive language of the British islands. If we abit&in from auch co-operation and competition, the trade anu intircourse of the two hemispheres will pass around us, loaving to us only incidental bonefHs common to all other nations. If, on the contrary, we adopt the policy which has dictated this measure, and if we cairy it out hy exteuding our railroad, postal an I te legraph f? stem, through our new Territories to the Paci fic coast, then we shall not oulv open to til our citizens arid Mates the inestimable benefits of a liberal, active aud internal commerce, but we shall draw through our own, ports, and on our own Territories, |is if it were a fertilizing river, the exchange* of the world. The measure before us ia less costly than any cne we have heretofore adopted for a sUmlar object It culls for a smaller outlay than that by which we acquired Loui siana or California. If the whole expense were to fail on the treasury, it would consume but two million flvehuu tired tbourand dollars in five years; but the freights, passage money ana postage would in the beginning yield t so hundred thousand dollars, aud ultimately the mails would become a means of revenue. We might per hip* wisely Consent lo delay the enterprise if our com mere were not ulready in tho Pacific oceun. It is toere, and becam e it Is there, we have already found it necessary to wild a mtl squadron to secure its protection na tional mails are everywhere equivalent to an armed force for the purposes of protection. Show me a place in the United States whore tbe mails arrive and depart regu larly and frequently, and I will give you a place where a soldier onouty in never seen. Show me, on the other band, a secluded region, where the postmaster seldom or ne\er penetrates, and I will sho*' you the United States barracks and garrison. It is just so at sea. Yon had no mail intercourse with Japun; therefore you sent a squadron there to prevent tbe sailors from being driven on rhore in distress?from being exhibited in cage* through out tue empire. You have BO postal connections with Af ? ric?, aun therefore you maintain a squadron there to pro tect your own seamen and prevent the slave trade. I con clude With n practical illiis'raf ion. Mere is a letter and here a newspaper, the one written and the other printed at Hong Kong, in China. They brought as the first in telligence of Commodore Perry's great treaty with Japan. They bear the poet mark of Hong Kong, and but for the want of a native mail they would have reached us, not by conveyance across tho Pacific and In our own mails across Panama, but by taking a circuitous wa> through India and the Isthmus of Suez and over the Mediterra nean Sea. and then after being stamped in the Post Office at London, they come to us over tbo Atlantic Ocean. ( alilornlu and Oregon, nearer by two thousand miles to Ilong Kong, and very deeply interesting, got the same down nearly a month after it reached us, indebted for it to the mail.stramers bet woes New York and San Fran cisco.

Mr. Gwin, (dem.) of Cal., laid that the bill could be disposed of alter a while, tbe steamer bill could be aced on now.

DEATH OF MADAME ME&ZLrNYI. Thin lady, the sister of Louis Ktsnath, die d at her residence, No. 130 Ninth street, yesterday, mourned by a large circle of friends. The disease was consumption, which has been growing upon her constitution ulnce 1861. It is related by her friends that upon the evening of thearrestof the female members of Kossuto'o family, during the Hungariau revolution of 1851, by Austriaus, Madame Mcsslenyi was one of the party, and with the others was dragged through the street* of Pesth, whtn were sown the seeds of the disease whkth has carried her to thegrave. She died in the 34th year of her age, and fully reconciled to death. The deceased lea res t wo inter esting children, both girls?ouo about ten and th? other twelve j ears of ago. Madame Mes/.leuyi arrived in this country With her staters, Madume ltuitkai and Madame Zuiansky, at the close of the winUw of 1861, and bring dependent upon their own exertions for support, at on?o entered into buriness. Me. daiuos Meszienyi ivnd Huttkai opened a store ix this city tor tbe tale of laoe and embroidery, aud the other winter took a boarding house. Tueir arrest iu Auc'ila *v** at the timu that Kossuth was mal.lng his tour of this couuiry, and the Austrian rulers displayed ibeir humanity by subjecting the sisters to tile jireates' ? uttering bv way of revenging themselves for what they esteemed the brother's faults. It will be remembered that the mother of Kosnath, who was also arrested by the same authorities, died from the hardi-litps of Aus trian dtppotism, atid even while the agonies of drath were upon her Kossuth was denied permission to sre her, except upon conditions v.hieh his honesty forbade him to accept. It is unn??e."Sary now to repeat in detail the slory e.f the t-u tier Lugs of "triis entire fmnily?their beng hunted like wild beasts through their own country? their tieatment in prison?their perils by land and sea, for a brother's patriotism?all this lia? uow become a mutter of history, aud the k.vntimtby of the civilized work has been given to the oppressed, and its scorn to their oppressors The children of the deceased are left to the care of her sister, Madame RuttLai. who has a iiusbaml living in Aus tria. but who is forbidden extending to bis wife any sup port. Helving wholly upon herown exertions, this lad? ha* been compelled to support her own family, consistinp of herself and three young children, and now to her care ia left the children of her deceased sister. Will not the hand of liberality be extended to these orphan:* by Ameri can citizens!1 They are thrown upon the worll by no Jault of theirs, but because their illustrious uncle, in emulation of ourownsiros, raised his arui against the OBpmW of his couutry.

Y.?Ar bksto fob Pasmi?<; Tiikm.?Ye sterday a new- and remarka bly well executed counterfeit w as detected in Je rsey City, which has resulted in the arrest of t vo persons, cli&rgea with being engaged in passinK the spurious money. lliO counterfeits consist of $1 Mils on the Bmk of Bath, Steuben county, N. Y., which aro altered to $20's, and arc so well executed as to deceive l>ank cashiors, brakors, aud other good judges of tank bills. Upon hearing that counterfeiters wero in the city, Deputy Sheriff Pollard went in search of them, and arrested a young man, who, it has been asceitained, is named Weitinj. Upon his ert-on he found one of the spurious Mlla. Captain Par ty, of the JertOy City police, by good management dis covered that another party was iindonbteply engaged in tbe business of pausing the money, and ho traced him to the t.erard House, in New York, where he had been staying for a few days, and by the aid ot' a New York officer he arrest eel him and took him to Jersey City. His name is Chatles Dlair. Upon his person were found six of the counterfeit *20'h. Copt. Farley has in his pos session about $lt;0, which he found npon these persons, with which he will rrde>ein these counterfeits to that amount, tor those upon whom they have been passed. Ihrse spurious bills have evidently but just made their appear,"ace, as th?y.arc not mentioned in the last coun terfeit detectors. The word or figure 1 has bocu extracted by chemical agencies, and tweuty is printed Instead in a most skilful tnanutr. Tbe bills are datel April 15, 1854. These young men are from the western pert of the State of New York?probably from Syracuse, as one of thorn telegraphed iu a friendly style to a man doing business in that city tbat he was in trouble, and wished h'tiu to raise all the money he could, and come to New York by the first train of cars. The prisoners *cic ta ;en before Hecoroer Cutter. ln?t they waived an examination, and I'f tCD'mUtcd turn iu default of UM lu tbsiwaor *2,fi00 each, to tho Hudson county jail, to await trial. ibe?e young men are believed to be connected with wealthy and very respectable families in Western New Yoik. Police Intelligence. An AUf.gtA larceny in a Polite Court.?0n Sunday night last a man waa picked up by one of the First v.ard police in that ward, lie being very druak. was taken to the First ward station house, and on ireing tcarclied, nearly $300 was found upon his pers m, which was taken ch-"ge of by fhc lieutenant in charge nt the sta tion house and the man consigned to there!!/-, fn ?he morning the money was given to the ofhcer. rtd the prisoner taken to tho Tombs. W'heu tho office ? arrived at tho Tombs with tbe prisoner in charge, h? there met with one of the city conatablos, and he and the mil cor te^tber, Instead of taking the money to the prapeity clerk, were seen counting it, snd two piles e'' flo gold pieces were seen In their possession, ono cont i nlng todr nieces, tlie other five pieces. Shortly afterwards Ihev Lam ed to the property clerk a patcel. saying It was tho money of the prisoner, and that he wan to ta!. care of it, tho man net being sufficiently sober. The man, tbe first ward officer, and the constable, then loft the court together, the prisoner having been discharged hy the magistrate. In the course of the day the Ban was met with again in a state of gross intoxication, and taken to the Tombs. Tt.dre are many surmises aCjat n* to how he became so, and a hinting abont a sham receipt. The next morning the man was taken Wore the magis trate for being intoxicated, and was fined and dl<ehirg ed Tie then wont to the property clerk and a>.Ued for his money, when the package he received was lisnde.l to the tnnn, who, on opening it, and finding only 980 said he had besides nine >20 gold pieces. The property clerk, Mr. Jaracs Nesbit, has made an affidavit, in which he distinctly s ates tliat the sum In question, $80, is all the money he received from the officer and the couita ble. ThPT circumstances of the case have since teen presented before tho Recorder, who has, for these two days past, been busy in investigating tho clrcumstau ees attending this most slngn'sr afTalr.

It is riddled with bullet holes, and luki been for agreatmuny yeard unoccupied. It is an old fashioned two story bouse, and has around ii mnny historical aaso c'ations. It talies its nam# from iM original proprirtor, the Hev. U riant, who occupied it during the Revo lution, and who here wrolo the story of his trance, which obtained for him some celebrity. Hit succes'ir, the Bct. Mr. Woodbull, here lived for forty yoars. and turned the house into a seminary for the study of theology and tie classics. Since the death of Mr. Woodhull, the bond ing has not been tenanted, but caiefiilly preserved by the owners of tbo tarm upon which It stands. Thousands of visiters call to see it every year; and such is tho anxiety cf mont of them to carry'away somo remembrance of it, that the eflert is Keen in tbe mirwing shingles, weather boards, door latches, Kc. At tho time of the battle, M*d Anthony Wayne, as he wax called, wus posted a few rods south ol this dnellin^r. After Leu's shameful retreat and reprimand, while lAfuyettc van mortified, Washington disappointed, and Morgan deeply chagrined at the ccurso things had taken.
