(Correspondence of the Phil. Ledger mOM WASltlNOTON. Waihinctoh, Feb. 17, 1850. ' There ii a rnmot in town, that Mr. Clay ton meant to resign the offica of Secretary of Stale; and another, that he haa already re signed ; but that the President would not ac cept his resignation. I Jo not believe it yet though I have good leaaon to know that Mr. Clayton threatened to da to if they would make him angry. 1 cannot for the lif of me see how Mr. Clayton manages to keep his temper; but his course in regard to what he is pleased to call the Nicaragua negotia lion, was certainly auch, that on Sunday last it was disapproved by thecabinot itself; and if Mr. Clayton can manage to pardon such an indignity he certainly shows great forbear ance and an amiability of temper which en , titles him to the respect of the wotld. Mr. Clayton's error consists in offering terms to Sir Henry Lytton Bulwer, when he knew, from Sir Henry's own lips, that he (Bulwer) had no instructions or power to treat, and could not engage the faith of his government. He might just as well have offered himself in marriage to a nun, as tried (o make a trea ty with Sir Henry. Well, after pursuing, Sir Henry with his suit, the latter at last consen ted to refer the matter to his government, which was accordingly done, and furnished a pretext to certain would-be-wise editors for spreading the rumor that a treaty had been concluded at Washington. What effect these rumors may have had in Wall street what effect it will have at the Stock Exchange in London, 1 cannot tell ; but mistakes of this sort seldom occur, without producingau effect among the brokers. Instructions have now gone out to Mr. Lawrence that he is not bound by Mr. Clayton's project ; but send the latter back to Washington. So that we shall pro bably stand just as we commenced, which have been concluded in Central America, and smothered on their arrival here in Wash ington. We also learn that Tigre Island is going to be surrendered first by England to the United States, and then by the United States to Hon duras, as if Tigre Island were a pocket-book which Honduras had dropped, and the United States picked up, without the knowledge and permission of the British justice of the peace, who, having possession himself of the stolen article, returns it to the thief and orders him te restore it to its lawful owner. This some writers in Mr. Clayton's employ call straight forward diplomacy ; but it consists, in my humble judgment, in a miserable attempt to save appearances, while he seems to be quite ready to sacrifice the substance of things. It is also whispered that Messrs. Crawford ami Preston are about to leave the Cabinet, but the cause for this rumor must be sought in the slavery question, on which both these gentleman differ essentially from both the President and the rest of their colleagues. That slavery question will yet give us a deal of trouble until it can be driven from the Halls of Congress. In conversing with Southern members, I heard them say that it was strange that the North should be unwilling to sacrifice a senti ment, when the South were quite ready to sacrifice their interest to the North. The South, I feel confident in saying, would look with favor on an Internal Improvement BUI and on some local changes in the Tariff of 1846, (not iuterfering with the general princi ple,) provided the slavery question be once disposed of, and time afforded for rational legislation on other subjects. I know that even the question of a fixed home valuation of iron has been talked of ; and that the efforts of Pennsylvania to roll back the tide of abolition have met the grati tude, and challenged the respect of every State south of Mason and Dixon's line. What folly it is to quarrel about abstractions of which it is known they Ml never find an application in practice, while substantial bene fits are thus thrown to the dogs! We have an internal improvement bill local improve ments of the tariff free trade in produce with Canada free navigation of the river St. Lawrence, and a land distribution bill pend ing before Congress, and yet the care of a few negroes, who will never goeitherto Cal ifornia or to New Mexico, absorbs our atten tion, to the exclusion of every serious consi deration. The Mexican Commissioners have in rll awarded a less amount of money than three millions and a quarter, stipulated in the treaty of Hidalgo. There were, no doubt, a number of claims (some of them stocked.) which had their origin in fancy, or in ideal performances which it was never intended should be requi ted by the enormous sums' now claimed as damages. The commissioners have done their duty. Oaseavca. Washington, Feb. 18, 1850. The Doty Resolution Excitement in the House, Ifc, To-day, in the House of Representatives, Mr. Doty, of Wisconsin, moved that the Con stitution of California, with an accompany, ing message of the President, be transferred to the Committee on Territories, with instruc tions to bring in a bill for the admission of California as a Slate. The moment this was done, an adjournment was moved, and the ayes and noes taken on it, which process has since been repeated up to this minute, 1 1 o'clock, P. M. If neither section (for it ia useless to talk of parties at this crisis,) feels disposed to yield, I have no doubt that the House will be called all night and all day to morrow, so that we shall have a House of Representatives en permanence, with no othe' question pending before it, than that of ad journment. Talleyrand would call this the beginning of the eml,atidoertainly, if nothing is done in the shape of a compromise, it is difficult to say where it will end. Some weeks ago, every thing looked favor able to the Missouri Compromise ; but iis champions seem to have fled; for I hear of n Senator beyond General Sam Houston who has the courage to propose it. Then we were led to hope that a Compromise would be ef feoteJ by allowing California, with proper limits, to eome iuto the Uuion, and establish J.ig toiritoiisl goTemmeiitt for tbt real of the Territories, without the Wilmot proviso ; but this proposition, too, seems to be killed be fore it was fairly brought into notice. Both Houses seem to be now bent on the admis sion of California as a separate and distinct measure, apart from all other questions; and the South, with equal unanimity, is bent on defeating the naked admission. What the South and the moderate men of the South, too insist on, is the settlement of all the questions involving slavery by one and the same bill, or by bills proceeding port passu with the bill for the admission of Cali fornia ; and for this reason, General Foole, actuated by the best motives in the world, moved the appointment of a Committee of fifteen, to which all these questions should be referred for a common settlement. The plan was patriotic, and with Mr. Clay as Chairman of that Committee, we might have hoped for better things. It really does not matter so much whether California is admit ted now, or four weeks hence, so she come in without creating sectional divisions, and rendering the final settlements of all the ques tions in dispute more easy and proable. The North, which is pressing the immedi ate admission of California has not now the same excuse which the Wilmot Proviso men have had, last year, for pressing their favor ite measure. It was then supposed by many that slavery would goto California ; time and the action of the people have shewn that the thing is impossible, and hence the reason for legislating on the subject does no longer exist The North have carried their point without the proviso ; and the consciousness of strength as well as the certainty of success ought to make them tolerant and patient. Among Senators a worse feeling prevails now than at the beginning of the session, and the North antLSouth are more distinctly marked than ever. Mr. Downs, of Louisiana one of the moderate men of the South, took ationg grounds against the admission of Cali fornia; and other heretofore moderate and conciliatory senators from the South will fol low him. Per Contra it is said that Mr. Webster will speak in the course of this week, and that the great stateman of Massachusetts will take strong grounds in favor of some national com promise. Two Northern Whig Senators (one of Vermont, the other of Rhode Island,) will stand by him ; and I have no doubt that Mr. Webster's words will fall deep into the hearts of his countrymen. Who does not reroem ber his great union speech against Haynes of South Carolina, the greatest speech in the English language and that glorious motto of his : "Liberty and Union, now and forever !" I also see several very influential lobby mem bers from Massachusetts who, in conversation freely avow that there has been a great reac tion in publio sentiment in the Old Bay State much more favorable te compromise and union than has existed there for many years, and that unless the Massachusetts Whigs change their grounds there will be such a thinning off in their ranks, aa to produce a revolution in politics. - Mr. Clay is surrounded by a crowd of young Whigs from the Empire State, who it it whit pered, are about to leturn to New York to hold a large meeting for the purpose of de nouncing the Wilmot Proviso, and standing firm by the compromise of the constitution Ihe old Kentuckian seems to look twenty years younger since he made his great speech; and he may yet aee his hopes realized and friendly relations restored between the two great sections of the country. Mr. Calhoun was, to-day, again in his seat in the Senate ; but he looked very pale and ghastly, and ought not soon to venture on a speech. He and Webster, may, nevertheleaa speak in the course oi this week. This morning it was positively asserted that Mr. Clayton had resigned ; but the Pre sident has not accepted his resignation, and so Mr. Clayton is obliged to hold over against his will. Observib. THE IMOtf. The history of the world affords no exam pie of a nation arising in so short a period from such small beginnings, to such a height of greatness and glory, as has been attained by these United States. No other population on the globe, twenty millions in number, are so generally prosperous, intelligent, and hap py. Instead of wasting our energies in fierce and bloody wars, one State or section against another instead of imposing all manner of restrictions and hindrances upon each other we have lived together in harmony, co operating in all matters of joint concern, but leaving the separate interests of each State to be managed in its own way. When we call to mind Ihe vast and immeasurable sac rifices made by our fathers in laying the foundations of this great republic, we cannot but admire their far reaching sagacity, nor less the devoteduess with which they laid themselves and their all upon the altar of their country. They felt that the prize for which they contended waa of inestimable value, and therefore that no hardships or sufferings, no expense of blood or treasure, were too great to be endured in such a cause.

In the Senate yesterday, a resolution was taken up, relative to payment of interest an the loan made to the Danville and Potlsville Railroad Company, and the sal of lb Rail road, when some disclosures were made re lative to the affair of that Corporation, which were any thing but creditable to those impli cated. The condition of the Company may be imagined from the argument ol Mr. Pack er, who advocated the passage of the bill, for the reason that the Commonwealth had guar anteed the interest on $300,000 of the bonds of Ihe Company for 27 years only 16 years of Ihe 27 have elapsed leaving It year yet to rnn. He contended, that by an immediate sale of the road, the liability of the State would be reduced to the amount for which the road with its appurtenances would sell under the hammer of ihe auctioneer which could not be less than $120,000 that turn being fixed aa the minimum value of the road in the bill under consideration. Five per cent., or $120,000, would be $6,000, which, multiplied by II, would give $66,000 at ihe turn actually saved to the Common' wealth by the sale. The bill heretofore pa sed authorising the sale of the corporate fran. chises of Ihis road, requires the assent of three fourths of the Bondholders before a sale can be had. Hitherto the bondholders have re fused their assent. The road is in a state of utter dilapidation ten miles at Ihe Potlsville end have been totally abandoned, and the iron sold. The Sunbury end, extending about twenty milet, was still in use, but could not possibly last another season without extensive repairs. The bond holders had abandonee: the road, and like the "dog in the manger," would neither keep it up themselves, nor permit it to be sold, and thus place it in the hands of those who would preserve it from destruction.' Mr. Packer cautioned the boiul holders lo beware how they used their infill ence to prevent the passage of thit bill if it fail, said he, they may perhaps knock at the door of the Treasury in vain for iheir interest The ttock holders had no interest in the result the company waa hopelessly insolvent The bond holders, who have the State guar antee, interpose and prevent a sale they receive their five per eent., whether the road be abandoned or not Let them beware, or perhaps the Commonwealth may pause, and inquire into the causes of their opposition. THE LATEST INTELLIGENCE FROM HUNGARY. By private accounts, from an Hungarian source, which we have received, we learn that the following are Ihe latest acts of the Austrian government lo the country and peo ple now lying prostrate at her feet: An order has been issued, intended, no doubt, to reach the Hungarian exiles in America, to Ihe following effect: All officers of the late Hungarian army are commanded to present themselves to the Austrian army, to be enrolled as common soldiers, otherwise they will be considered and treated as deserters. All individuals charged with political criminal offences, whose names havo been published in the Vienna Zeitung, are judicially commanded and required to present themselvesand make their defence before Ihe proper tribuna within three months time. Among these persons are : Kossuth, Ex President, and Minister Szemere, Ex-Minis ters Casimir, Bathyany, Bischof, Howarth Yukovies, Eugene Beothi, and Ladislaus Ma darasz, the two latter ihe most distinguished republicans and orators of the late Hunga rian House of Representatives; the others all of them active agents in the late attempted revolution. Our correspondent inquires : "Who would be so senseless as lo present themselves be fore their slaughter-benches?" He adds: A sullen stillnes reigns over the country, which it is to be hoped is the pre cursor of a storm. Ninety-five colonels of the Hungarian army have been lately condemned lo eighteen yea is' imprisonment in irons, and a great number of majors to twelve years' confinement. The Hungarian officer Pulaski has jusl pub lished in English, in London, a ooinprehen sive work on the Hungarian Revolution, of which copies are expected to arrive by the next steamer. Colonel Pragay, now in thi city, it, we believe, nearly ready with his work of "Reminiscences and Anecdotes of the Hungarian War and ita Heroes." Thi will undoubtedly bea highly interesting work N.

"Not very," replied Ihe little fellow, shivering at the same time. "Well, come with me," said the stranger; and he took him lo a store and left bim lo be fitted with a child' toil, then went out and relumed with a pair of red stockings and shoes.

The fire broke out shortly after midnight on the 16th, and is believed to be the work of an incendiary. About twenty buildingson Camp street and ten on Bank Place were de stroyed. The Picayune office was among the buildings consumed. But a small portion of the type and fixtures were saved. The loss is mostly covered bv insurance. Five insurance offices also fella prey tothe flames.

The Star appears to be very doubtful of a railroad being constructed across the Isthmus, and intimates that much disappointment has attended the expectations of all who based their business calculalim upon the promises of the railroad company The Star teems to be decidedly of the opin ion with Colonel Hughs, that a railway ship canal acrott the Isthmus of Tehuante pec, is, "the most practicable as well as the most feasible mode of communication that has yet been suggested." The Sla goes on to say that it is not opposed lo a rail road across the Isthmus of Panama; on the contiary, it wishes to see ihe railroad built but, at the same time, hints, it hat little or no expectalion of that being done. One thing, it says, is certain, viz: that railroad or no railroad, if possible, belter roads than Ihe one now iu existence must be made, and it suggests a plank road, remarking that Ihe timbei is on the line, and such a road could be built in one year.
