HISS DAVENPORT IN A NEW PtlY " CAMILLE CR THE FATE OF A CO QTTETTE." A new play entitled " Camille, or the Fate of & Coquette" will be produced this evesing for the first time in our city, at the "V ariete, Miss Davenport persona ting the herione, Camille. Prom a peru ial of the following sketch of the plo'i this tragic play, it will be seen, posses.se. much interest : " The story is simple?Camille Gautier has rendered herselfnotoriousthroughout Paris by her system of coquetry, and to such extent ha? she carried this folly, that a stigma is at tached to her name. She at length really be comes enamored of Armand Duval, and her par-ion is ardently returned. He perceiving in Camilla symptoms of consumption, is glad to accompany her out of tova to spend the sum mer months in the country, that her health ' may be restored, and daring this delightful sojourn in each other's company they became affianced. Thin news spreads to the city of Tonrs. where Armanda's sister is betrothed to the hoir of a noble family ; the parents of this bridegroom declare their fob ah all not marry M'lle Duval until Armand breaks off from Ca mille. Old Duval therefore, seeks out the co- 1 quette, and informs her of all these circum- 1 stances, entreating her to sacrifice her love for Armand in order that the other marriage may take place. After a severe struggle, she con sents. on the condition that Armand be not in- ' formed of her reasons, for thus throwing off his suite, until after her death, fearing that such ( a disclosure would cause a quarrel between fa ther and son. '? She jilts him and accepts the long offered i band of the Count de Varville. Armand en- \ raged at her seeming perfidy, most unfortu nately meets Camille at a ball given by a mu- ' tual friend. A very stormy and exciting scene < ensues between them, in which she feels it her i duty to say that she loves De Ville ; upon this Armand. transported beyond th? limits of rea son by his fury, calls in all the guests and tells ' aloud the story of her apparent beartlessness i and coquetry. The excitement under which she has labored brings a severe return of her ' disease that undermines h<F health and brings her to the verge of the grave. Old Duval hear- l ing that she is dying, writes to Armand, ex- 1 plaining all the circumstances. The now re pentant lover returns to Paris just in time to ' receive the last breath of poorCamille. " Around this simple, and yet comprehensive i plot the hand of the author has traccd a varie ty of incident and character that has but a trifle to do towards the developing of the trag- 1 ic denoeument, but which affords fine scope for i clever acting." , The New York True Democrat, in which city Miss Davenport appeared in this character, says: Miss Davenport's representation of the part of Camille, is said to be one of the most power ful efforts of artistic greatness. It is every thing that can be desired. She is judiciously gay in the lively portions, and painfully ex cellent in the pathetic. The Broadway thea tre will no doubt present a brilliant appear anco to-morrow evening."

Caucus.?To-morrow (Tue.-lay) evening, al the Capitol, there will be a caucus of Jratia House members to nominate a House printer. The Kotiente Cordiale bstwoen Engird ?nd France, announced in Lord Clarendon s recent speech, so fkr as it threatens our rela tions with those Governments, is still a matter >f convers itionsl speculation in political cir :les here. It will be recollected that in Gui iots day, England essayed to use him (then fjouis Philippe'# prime minister.) after the <ame fashion, to prevent the annexation of Texas Those gorernments then made an '?Vtiente cordial*, designed to prevent thecon iuinma! ion of that policy of this Government. The I nited Stales snapped their fingers at the tni ted efforts of England and France on that >ccasion; knowing Oiat thoy could not afford a ?var against us in furtherance of a siinplo design :o meddle in our affairs, with the view to re press our national growth. Oar statesmen, too. hen placed strong reliance on the correct hope hat Loais Philippe had not the least idea of icting with England in that affair further than o lend her purpose the sanction of his name, o long a serious difficulty with us might not ippear likely to eventuate from that policy on lis part. Now, however, we find public men in Wash ngton regarding the attitude of England and ; ranee towards us (as foreshadowed in Claren lon s speech,) as really requiring grave attcn ion. As, if the Eastern question be settled >eaceably, those allies will be in a military ondition to dictate terms concerning Cuba to is for a time. There is no disguising the fact, hat in case they may not require to use their -aat military preparations against Russia, they nay, at will, compel us to submit to whatever >pain may do with Cuba, under penalty of errible temporary disasters from war with hem. It will be recollected that we are Tholly unprepared for fighting them on the ?cean, while we have a commerce afloat which vould be utterly sacrificed were wo to resist heir demand*. These are plain truths, which rnblic men among us are now looking straight n the face. Hence grows a very strong desire or the settlement of all questions really in lispute between Mexico and this Government. \.s, unless so settled in the event of a war with eference to Cuba, our neighbor, as an ally of France, England and Spain, sheltering their roops aiming to operate against California, night give us infinite trouble. Up to this time, t seems to us that the policy of Congress ha* jeen to ignore the possibility of another war with an European power or powers. Yet, year Jy year, and day by day, we have gone on ex panding and increasing in every way likely :o bring us into collision with other powers with whose interests we are thus commencing to rerfere. In the East, our commerce has in :r?!ased within the last ten years in ratio near y 100 fold faster than England's has ever progressed there; until she sees in us a rival for trade of that quarter of the universe, who s nut long hence to throw her iuto the back ;round. Our South American and Pacific islands trade iiTeatens her commercial supremacy in those luarters quite as seriously, while at the same lime its increase comes home to the immediate jotumercial interest of France, now governed i>? a monarch whose policy with reference to war is directly the reverse of that of Louis Phil ippe. who was as proverbial for his disinclina :iou to it under any circumstances. England md France realize that the policy of the United States points with unerring certainty to the jventual acquisition of Cuba and more of Mex ico. That is by purchase?honest, fair and square purchase, if possible; but at any rate to iucli eventual acquisitions In them, they see, too. additional elements to enable us the more 3urely and speedily to outstrip them in the joininercial race now in progress. While we have no idea that the United States would ob serve an hour longer than absolutely necessary any convention that England and France might force from our necessities and condition of want of preparation for war, we are prepared in the event of a peaceable settlement of the Eastern luection, to see them essaying to carry out in this quarter, the intention of regulating " the balancc of power ' on the American continent, foreshadowed in Clarendon s speech. As, if they fail to check us at thin time, they may ne\cr again hope to be able so to do. Th? self evident corollary of all this is, the vital importance of prempt action in the House upon the Senate's six steamer bill. As wholly insufficient as tiurt will be to enable us to cope successfully with those Powers on the eceau , (he ships to be built under it, may, neverthe less, gave American property a hundred times their cost to the National Treasury, in the course of a single year after such international trouble may commence. Society in Washington, &o.? A letter ol the Washington correspondent of a Philadel phia paper, dated February 23d, instant, re minds us of the fact that that writer has, for years past, exhibited a passion for crying down those among whom he has now so long resided. As he intimates in this letter that they look to the pens of such individuals ai himself, wielded in distant newspapers, foi guides for their opinions and acts, it may not be amiss to show, briefly, how silly his notion in this connection really is. Thus, while hit letter, on which we comment, is little more than a tissue of unfounded assertions concern ing the Washington press and Washington so ciety be so delights in maligning, the mass ol the reliable information relative to what h going on here, in the same journal, is copie<l from the Star and other Washington news papers. If there be an undue share of time serving and corruption in "Washington so ciety,5' it arises wholly from the fact that tli? sessions of Congress bring hither crowds ol persons of the profession of this correspondent | ?''borers''?who are any and everything, tt any and everybody for pay. They are not cit izens of Washington, having not the slightesi identification with this city. The moral oJ ! ;heir example, we are free to confess, has a bae afreet here, corrupting the manners and habit.1 of the young, and of strangers, who seeing more of them than of business citizens o: Washington, are prone to loave us impressec with the idea that they are fair representative! <>f "Washington society." So far as his alle gation that the Washington public look rathei to the views of persons wielding pen* like his and as his is wielded, for guides for their viewi and conduct in public affairs, we have simplj to remind him that all the Washington work know that his opinions and representations both of measures and men, are almost as open ly "in the market," as the butter and vinegai they pay for, for their tables. Knowing wei that upon Texas bonds, railroads, patent exten sions, the protection question, Ac., 1c., hi views are regularly and systematically paii for, in cash in hand or contingencies, and wi] assume, in all oases, the hue which pays best they have little faith in his attempt to pul their interest at the expense of the press o Waahington city. Of late, he has been engage in puffing a few members ?f Congress, at iiauseavm He has carried that folly to such point as to make the recipients of his purchase* praise, the ridicule of the town. Himself ai office-holder through their exertions, he give them quid pro quo, until his labors to repa them for the ' facilities'' they have thus al forded Imu for the prnsecution of his main ] busiiiCfn at this time not only make them ridiculuus in the eyes of all others, a* before remarked, bat also scam greatly to generate the impression, in man; oases most unjust, that of all sinister and unreliable newspaper writing which eTer saw the light, that which is at this time known as "Washington corres pondence"' is the most mendacious. The Very Last Bbdge ?The letter signed "K,!" so conspicuously displayed in the New York Tribune, attributing the Nebraska-Kan sas bill to Messrs. Toombs and Stephens, of Georgia, and maligning all the Southern Whigs without stint, the Hon. John M. Clayton es pecially, has created groat amusement in Washington,as convoying indisputable evidence of the desperation to which the opponents of the measure have arrived. It is the standing joke here, of the day. We have to assure the public that neither Messrs.^Toombs and Stephens, nor any other Southern Whig member of either House, had the least knowledge of the purpose of the author of the bill, with reference to the meas ure, until they obtained the information legit imately. That is, until having it regularly before them, in committee and in open session, they were called on in the discharge of their legislative functions to decide how they would stand upon it. This we know to be positively true, and we defy "K" or any one else to pro duce the first person or fact to gainsay our declaration. Empty assertion will not do. Such testimony is too cheap; and more espe cial!^ when, as in this case, it is accompanied by a sweeping detraction of everybody and everything Southern, standing alone?utterly unsupported?it is simply ridiculous. The silly allegation is that under the lead and through the plotting of Mr. Toomts, the whole South, in and out of Congress, without distinction of party, have entered into a black conspiracy against the North, with a view to conquer Northern rights and institutions, or else to dissolve tho Union. The mere state ment of this charge is sufficient to show its ex treme folly and the utter mendacity and des peration of those who approach the good sense of the Northern masses after such a fash ion. No man has need to fear the consequen ces of such arguments upon the Northern mind, unless the North has gone mad, of which there is no evidence that we can see. Mr. Churchwell'g Resolutions.?We find a growing desire around us for immediate action on the resolutions introdnced into the House not long since by Mr. Church wall, of Tennef see, announcing the determination of this Go vernment to resist, from the outset, any at tempts of Foreign Powers (European) to inter fere with us on or about the American Conti nent. The movement of General Cass in the Senate on Saturday to this end. is pronounced by all to have been eminently proper, to have originated with that veteran and emphatic American statesman. His warning of the ne cessity for the adoption of these resolutions, in view of the avowal of Lord Clarendon of the intentions of England and France as pro nounced, has met the approbation and sympa thy of all public men of all parties with whom wc have conversed on the subject. We well remember tho action of the British Parlia ment on the Oregon question, when party dif ferences wero in an instant hushed, in order to second the efforts ot the English government in behalf of that for which they then contended as England's rights. It cannot be that the Cougross of the United States will be less prompt and patriotic now, than Parliament was on that occasion.

Mr. Stanton, of Ky., sugge>ted t hat it was necessary to elect a printer at onc? as soon as possible, as. else, neither bills, nor resolutions even, could be printed. Mr. Jones, of Tenn., suggeste ( that the printer of the House was a contrae or?not an officer ot the House, and to test the ;orrectncss of this opinion, he intended to ino's to lay the resolution on the table. Mr. Dean modified his ameudi ient by in serting ednesday next at two p m . rather than Monday, as he originally proposed. Mr. Davis, of Indiana, argued I? show that the printer wa.-i an officer, rather than a con tract. Mr. Washburn, of Me., coincided in that opinion.

M hen my husband was in Afghanistan he was several times asked, "Are you married ?" "No; my wife is dead.' "We hear you are very* sorry when your wives die; did you weep?' "Yes I did." Whereupon the\r were struck dumb with astonishment, that any one could feel the death of a wife so strongly. "Wrhy should we grieve ?" say they; "there are plenty of others;'1 and yet these are men of warm feelings, capable of strong attachments and sympathy; but this only proves that any violation of the law written in the hearts of all, or of the arrangements of the Creator, to say nothing of His re vealed laws, brings with it its own pun ishment. Polygamy has destroyed ev erything like domestic and family ties. Sometimes nature re-asserts her right, and produces strong attachment between husband and wife, brother and brother, but this is the exception; and that this state of things is produced by potygamy, and not merely by ignorance of true re ligion, is proved by the example of the ancient Romans during the period when divorce was unknown, and when the wife, being the sole and life-long partnir of her husband, gave him not only a helpmeet but a home and a domestic hearth, ideas unknown to Mahommedans. There must be a mater familias before true family ties can exi&t.?Life in the Mission, the Cainp, and the Zenana.
