The success of their measures ; expecting the proposed Commercial relaxation* : j. quite certain, and the Corn Hill having now fina I! v passed the House of Commons, may he exacted at no remote day, to pa*s the Lords by j a majority no less decisive. From that time, j l.uwevtr, the lie which has hitherto kept the Whig party in support of Sir Robert Feel, " ill j be dissolved; and the determination of the Fro tectionist party, who suppose themselves to have | been hetraved, to drive him from office, has lost j rK>ne of its vigor or power. Indeed, it is confi dently reported, in quarters entitled to great res pect, that they have even offered to the leader of the whig party to select his own time, and that when he is ready, they will be no less pre pared to force Ministers to resign. 1 have rea son to know that, at present, Ministers them selves believe a change to be inevitable, and are ■ considering only the mode and the time in which , it will most likely happen. i It will not be long, after the success of the ! measures for the repeal of the “Corn laws, be-j fore opportunities enough for the accomplish- j ment of this object will occur. The Factory bill regulating the hours of labor will afford one, i and most probably that on which llie change hi take place. With a knowledge that the change, sooner or later, must be unavoidable, and that the offi r has been made to the probable head ol a new Mimstrv to select his own time, may it not be expected that instead of waiting quietly to al low the Whig leader to select the time ot corn ing in, the present Minister will ratherselect his own time and mode of going out ; and v%i.L his usual sagacity so regulate his retirement as to j leave as few obstacle* as possible to his restora- j tian to power. In that case, it is not very un- | likely he would prefer going out upon the “Fac- j lory bili,” before taking ground upon more im-j poi tant measures —and if so, it will not surprise I nie to witness the coming in of a new Ministry ( at the end of June or earlier. With a know ledge of the proposition now to be made. 1 am not prepared to say that one more objectionable might have been apprehended from a Whi: ministry; unless, indeed, the present govern ment may be supposed to be prepared to ac iept the qualifications when proposed by the j President, which it was unwilling at first to offer. ; I’pon that *nppo*dion, it might b© desirable that the modifications should be offered before the coin- I ing in of a new Minister, who, finding only the j aM* of hi* predecessors, without a knowledge of his intentions, might not he so ready to take the lesponsibility of assenting to a change.

Y^oung, of the Telegraph, saw dA' Cape Antonio:—“It seems that on the day 1 stated, (the 20th of May) when two captured American vessels w'ere observed as ‘at anchor under the guns of a Mexican privateer, the rakish schooner Spitfire, formerly a slaver, now a peace ful merchantman, was off Cape Antonio, and having a party of ten or twelve persons on hoard ; at the time ’the Telegraph hove in sight, she ; hoisted the Spanish (lag and fired a few gun*, upon which the brig showed British colors, and ; crowded sail to r-ach Jamaica, carrying the , news which has so starled the underwriters throughout the country.” COOL FORETHOUGHT. Our readers may recellect that a few days since, we chronicled an accident by which three Irishmen were hurt, part of the wall of a build ing in Mount Vernon street, which they were engaged in pulling down, falling upon them. A friend who was passing at the time tells us, that a lady from the opposite side of the street, rushed ■ out, and calling to those who were rescuing the | poor fellows, said—“Bring them in here. Bring them in here. I have everything ready. I have been expecting this all day.” The men were carried into her bouse, and true enough, she had “evtrutfivi* ready ” bandages, lint, laudanum and all. ’if this be not cool forethought, we know not what is.—Boston Transcript.

It was only Indians who asked lor whiskey and liked to drink it. “Then,” replied the Indi an quickly, in his broken English, “me damn rascal.” SAILING OF MISSIONARIES.

We trust the Senate j may take steps to ferret out the person who has , thus violated the order of the Senate, and make an example of him—as they ought to have done in the case of Tappan. RESPECT FOR THE CONSTITUTION. The New York Tribune boasts that “a fugitive , slave can hardly be reclaimed north of the Dela ware.” The tight of reclamation is one guaran tied by the Constitution and laws of the land, which every good citizen north of the Delaware, as well as south of that river, is bound to obey. We see nothing to boast of, then, in this admit ted want of obedience to the law’—this practical nullification—this shameful breach of faith ! THE “EVERLASTINGLY RICH MANU FACTURERS. ” Mr. Niles, in the Senate, the other day, said that he had heard it often repeated that the Man ufacturers were getting everlastingly rich. Now, he had been one himself, upon a small scale, and instead of these “everlasting riches,” had had the misfortune to become “everlastingly poor.” The Southern Nabobs, who complain so much about the Tariff, are themselves the men who roll in luxury and wealth.

The steamship New York at New Orleans, brings dates from the Army up to the 11th. inst. Col. McIntosh has recovered from his wound*, and has come on to New Orleans. The general health of the Army is good. A general move is expected before long. THE NAVAL BOARD. Il now appears that the Naval Board assem bled in Washington, have not the subject of a proposed attack upon the castle of San Juan de Ullua before them, or any thing connected with Mexican hostilities. Andrew Potter, who sometime since commit ted a most brutal murder, near New Haven, was executed on Monday last. He met his death with perfect composure. The Magnetic Telegraph reported in New York, on Monday last, that the Tariff bill had passed the Senate. The papers of that city, call it the Tell-Lie-Graph! A squadron of Dutch ships of war, is shortly expected in the harbor of New York. COtfGRESS. SENATE, Thursday, July 23. On motion of Mr. Lewis a Committee of Con ference, consisting of Messrs. Benton, Evans, and Lewis, was appointed on the Army Ap propriation Bill. Mr. Cameron, presented numerous memorials from democratic counties in Pennsylvania which gave in 1814, 14,005 democratic majority— nearly three times tho whole majority given by the State—rcunonstrating against a repeal of the Tariff of 1842. Mr. Cameron moved a reference of the memo rials to the Committee on Printing. Mr. Sf.vier said we had a sort of a panic here j eveiy morning about this Tariff. We had heard a good deal of late about singular coincidences, and there seemed to he a singular coincidence just now between the Senator from Massachu setts (Mr. Webster) and the Senator from Penn sylvania (Mr. Cameron) who were passing ques tions and answers backwards and forwards a few days a*o about Pennsylvania, and how she voted, and what she thought about the tariff, all of which was a very good joke. Now every day, said Mr. S. we have a sort of funeral dirge from these pensioners, at taking away the bounty we have granted to them for a few years past. This petitioning from Pennsylvania, he said, was a mere joke. Was there a man who could read and who had read for the last twenty years, that did not know that James K. Polk was a free trade man ? Not one, and Pennsylvania to-mor row, notwithstanding all the fuss about the Tariffj would vote the democratic ticket. She never would vote for the whig party under any circum stances. Now Mr. S. thought his side of the Chamber had borne this joke of hearing the lamentations of these pensioners with great good humor, but he hope that it would not he carried any farth- j er, and that Senators on the other side would I give them the morning hour for other business, ; and then they might take from one o’clock to the adjournment to speak about tha Tariff to their hearts content. Mr. Cameron made a spirited defence of Pennsylvania. She was no pensioner. She ask ed no favors from the government. She asked only to be let alone. The Senator had remark ed upon the coincidence between the Senator from Mass, and himself upon this subject. He would remind the Senator that only a short time ago there was also a singular coincidence be- ; tween him and the Senator from Mass, upon a more important question, one which involved the dismemberment of our territory. Mr. Sevier. To what question does the Sen ator allude. Mr. Cameron. To the Oregon question. Mr. Sevier. Oh ! Mr. Cameron then went on to say that the la- ! borers in hi« stale were freemen who dared to stand up before God, and speak and act like i i freemen—and were not to be put upon a level with the slave labor of the south. After some remarks from Mr. Crittenden as to the importance of ascertaining what Pennsyl vania thought of the administration she was a bout bringing into power in the ’election of 13H, ! Mr. Jarnagin desired to ask the Senator from j Aikausas one question. He wished to know what interpretation he put upon the Kane letter: J Mr. Sevier replied that it was a very good fret trade letter ! After some remarks by Mr. Westcott, Mr. Sturgeon said that the question of the Tariffof ’42 entered into the canvass of 1844, in Pennsylvania, but it was not the only question, and he must protest against the opinion that the 1 election in that slate turned upon the Tariff. Mr. SrEiciiT with a view of putting an end to the discussion, moved to lay the petitions upon the table. Lost, yeas 21, nays 25. Mr. J. M. Clayton asked the Senator from Pennsylvania, (Mr. Sturgeon,) whether he be lieved Pennsylvania would have voted for Mr. Polk, if he had been known to be in favor of such a bill as that now before the Senate? Mr. Sturgeon said he could not tell what she would have done in that case. The vote was a large one, between 300,000 and 400,000, and it would be difficult to say what motives governed so large a body. Mr. J. M. Clayton. 1 ask the Senator’s opin ion 7 Mr. Sturgeon declined giving any. Mr. Clayton said the Senator declined an swering. lie would not venture to give such an opinion. Mr. C. then alluded to the remarks of Mr. Sevier, and wished it to be known throughout the length and breadth of Pennsylvania, that Senators on the opposite side treated the peti tions that came from that state, praying Congress to save them from utter ruin, an a very good joke ! and maintained that Pennsylvania was ready to vote the democratic ticket and the destruction of the Tariff! ! The people of Pennsylvania, had been cheated into the support of Mr. Polk, and were now told that if they had common sense or could read, they must have known that Mr. Polk was a free trade man. Mr. Allen called the Senator from Delaware to order. The President decided that Mr. Clayton was in order. Mr. Clayton then went on, and at the conclu sion of his remarks, Mr. MeUuffie moved to lay me memorials on the table, and on this question; the Ayes and Noes were ordered. The Senate refused to lay on the table. Yeas 25, Nays 2G—Mr. Haywood voting with the Ta riff Senators in the negative. The reference to the Committee on Printing was then ordered. Mr. Atherton, from the Committee on Print ing, made a report against print ing the memori als against a repeal of the Tariff, which had been referred to them. The question being on concurring with the re port of the Committee, the Yeas and Nays were ordered, and the Senate refused to concur. Yeas 25, Nays 25. The Vick President voted in the negative ! The memorials were then ordered to be printed. On motion of Mr. Hannegan the Committee on the Library was instructed to inquire into the cause of the delay in the delivery Fremont’s Re port, and also to inquire whether any officer of the Senate had disposed of or held back any doc uments ordered by the Senate. Mr. Cilley presented resolutions of the legis lature of New Hampshire in favor of the Tariff. Mr. Lewis, from the Committee on Finance, reported the Navy Pension bill, from the House, which after a brief debate was amended and passed. The Tariff Bill was then taken up, and Mr. Upham addressed the Senate at length in oppo sition to it. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. A resolution was adopted to close the debate upon the bill forthe increase of the duties and , pay of the Attorney General, at 1 o’clock. The resolution was not seriously objected to. Mr. .1. R. Jngersoll asked leave to offer a Joint Resolution recommending to the Pi evident, if in his judgment he should think it expedient, to offer an amicable scltl ement of the pending difficulties with Mexico by opening negotiations for the purpose. Reasons are given in the reso lutions presented why the compromise should be made, and they relate mainly to the honor and dignity of such a position assumed by the United States. Mr. Ppomgoolf objected to the resolution, ana so did Mr. Rathbun, of N. Y., who moved that the House go into Committee of the Whole on the State of the Union. Mr. Dromgoole, of Va., was called to the Chair, and a debate arose upon the bill refer ring to the duties of the Attorney General, and the increased salary. The bill was defended by Messrs. J. R. Ingersoll, Rathbun, Chase, A dams. Sims, and oihers, and opposed by Messrs. Jones, of Tenn., Owen, of la., and others. At one o’clock, the Committee were brought to a vote upon tho amendments, and the motion to increase the salary to $6000 per annum wa» lost—73 to 53. The. Committee also refused $500 as a messenger for the office, by the same vote. Mr. Tiprstts proposed an important substi tute to the bill, defining the duties of the Attor ney General in regard to the examination of in debtedness to the United Slates, &c. The substitute was amended, reported to the House, and then laid upon the table. The House again went into Committee of the Whole, Mr. Brodheap, of Pa., in the Chair. Mr. King, of Ga., moved to take up the bill providing for new' contracts for the transmission of mails to foreign ports. Lost. Mr. Seaman, of N. Y., moved that the Gen eral Fortification hill be taken up, which was agreed to, and Mr. S. defended the clauses for the better defence of New York. _j J1GG'MODEL SOAP.—A fresh lot of that J superior Egg Model Soap, with Palm, Al mond and other soaps, received and for sale cheap by [jj 24] GEO.
