After sho nad been to sou sixteen days, sbc bad only insula about lulftlio voyage, Sho encounterod very se vere weather, and oven in the channel, iho gale was so furious, that Capt. Lott was tin ablu to land bis pilot, and ho consequently brought him to Boston. Tho Caledonia brought $310,22" in specie. But lilllu news is brought by this arrival. Tho Inst dates by packet were to the loth December, and in the intervening timo but little of interest lias occurred. No intelligence) had been received of the everland mail from India and China. Parliament is summoned to meet on thu teroud of February. Sir Robert Peel, it is vxptictrd, will introduce a salutary and v, lioln sulu nlter.ilion of tho restriction by which trade M f tiered.

The I iwfulobjei t of ihe war, on the part of Great t'ritain, was to compel tho im prrialilespotio treat, as the sovereign of a great em pire, with the sovereign of nnothsr cmpiiu not less powerful, ol the intercourse, couitncrciil and political, between their two mighty nations, upon terms of pi'ife-l equalily and re-ciprocitv. Tho conllirl was, in root nnd t'lbsiance, for equal lihls of independent nations, against the insolent and absurd assumption oftlespi'tic supicmicy. On this point, tho committee forUnr to impress any opinion. It is undetetood that one of the stipulalians of iho Irpitv cf peaee tecently concluded has seemed lo the Dntish (loi ernment the right of ironing hereafter with lhat of Chun, by accredit! d coinnu-'Moners plnipo tentiirv, upon terms of pc ifecl cquility and rei iproci ty. Hut as Great Uiitrun was not bound, nnd pcr Inps, in -tticinrss, had not thu tijht, to slipulilo f r the came princijilu in I uhalf of other nations, it will mlurally lollow that, nsa compact, it v. id be obligato ry only uiion the partirs ; and tho Chinee monarch miy continue tnchiui superiortiy and yassilnga in the intercourse of cttcr foreipn nations with his domin ions, a- he Ins done hitherto.

The intercourse af tlv se United Slates with the Celestial Empire Ins hitherto been exclusively commercial; and they hae submiited to hold it upon thesime turns in which nil the other maritime nations of Christendom have, until tine recent coplbet, tamely acquiesced. Consuls, to r.side at Canton, hav been appointed, from liui'' lo time, from tho penodof our independent existence j they have never been pi rmitled lo enter the g ites of Canton, nor received or acknowledged in any other capacity than ns oulsido barbarians vassals to the Supreme Lord of the Flowery Land. The lutmilia ling forms in the concession of superiority has been, is signally cxoinp'ified in thu following extract from the Idler of the Consul cf the United Stiles to tha lato Secietary of Stale, Mr. I''orsyth. After rep irlin,' an rdirl w hich ho had recently reciiv cd from the imp-rial commissioner and Ihe governor of Canton, and his respectful answer ton, ho siys: "Tho reply, of which I now send yon a copy, was re turned by this officer, (the kwang-chow-foo,) request ing that I would ndd an expression of gratitude for all fivors bestowed on mo by tho Great Ihnperor, nnd likewise n hopo for the cbn'inuance ofthe Celestial dymsty's trade with my in lion, placing ihs Celestial dynisty about an inch higher on the paper than my nation, thereby admiring llieir supi'riority." Mr. Snow very properly declined to comply with tins demand j but the fict of this being made proves how tenaciously the Chinese officers then adhered to their pretension, nnd to what minuteness of nieta for malities it was extended. The Comni'ltee on foreign Affiirr, believing the present moment auspicious for placing, by mutual consent, the future rcla'ions of intercourse between the United SntM and tin r.mnire of China upon a foolin"of national equah'v and reciprocity, propose n appropriation of 810,0C0, to enable the I'rr-idcnl to accomplish that object, without deeming it nieessn ty to designate the specific renk or chiracler of the agcnls vvhom h" imv emp'oy for that purpose, or more cp rially to limit the amount of contingent ex penses which may occur in the piocess of its accom plishment. ntOM WASHINGTON.

In the Senato to-day, petitions woro nresontcd in favor of Iho Exchequer by Mr. rallmadj;o, of W. Cost Johnson's plan of relief to tho Slates (from Ohio) by Mr. Crittenden, against the repeal of the Bankrupt Law by Mr. llurh.inati, etc. After somn privato business the Oregon bill camo up and was discussed with much vigor and pungency by Mr. McDtiflic. Ho considered it tho part of wisdom and pro dunco, before engaging in any enterprise, to consider well tlioappropriato litno for its com tnoiirotnont, tho means for effecting it, and the ultimate cost and ultimate benefit likely to be the result. It seemed to him that tho greatest error of Senators in urging this bill w.n a lack of attention to those important considerations, lie tegarded our title to this territory as un questionable, but that tho present was not only the most unfavorable time for asserting it, but that the country was not of sufficient importance to justify tho neccsaary expense. It was tin prudiictito and very remote, and there was no possibility of its ever becotninir connected with the Slates of our Union. Ho heartily rejoiced in tho ion of the late treaty, and eulo gized tho authors of il: and thought tint now, when the two Nations were congratulating themselves and each other over its constimatioii, was the most unnatural and unpropitious lime for cuinmeric ing warlike measures upon a sub. ject of such comparative insignificance, nnd even now a matter of pending negotiation. Ho was listened to by a crowded audience, whose rapt attention testified that although physically infirm he retains his wonted elo quuiro and powers of intellect. The quos'lum was on motion of Mr. Linn put over till to-morrow, and after some unimpor tant business, tho .S'onalc adjourned. In the House, Mr. Wisu fi'ui) the Select Committee nf last session on (lie public print ing, reported a bill to establish a Government office for printing, binding, and foro her purpo ses. Referred to the Committee nf the Whole, when .1r. W. asked that it ha undo the special order for some day near at band. This was not done, hinvcver. Mr G. Divis moved to go into Committee of the IUI10I0 on the Union to take up his bill for the reduction of iho expenses of the New. York Custom-llnuso.but the motion was not received, not being in order. Tho special order, Mr. Fillmore's ani-Ex-chequer resolution, (from the Committee of I Fays and Means) came up. Air Hirnard made a forcible speech of an hour against the Exchequer scheme, cxatnin inif its details and pronouncing it even mine objectionable than tho Sub Treasury itself. Ho urged upon thu House tho duty, alter disposing of this negative proposition, of some affirmative action at this session, and said if Mr. Gushing did not move tho consideration of the Exche quer in committee of tho U'liole, ho himself should, not with a view of favoring it, but as a means of bringing forward as an amendment a proposition which he intended tn ofi'or and for wh ch he invoked the respectful consideration of the louse. Mr H'liithrop urged upon the House the imperative duty and necessity of passing some measure to bring the public monejs under the Legislative control. His first choice was a U. S. Hank ; but ho would support many of the provisions uf the Exchequer, if no other plan were presented ; and if compelled to a vote on this resolution, should vole against it, choosing to remain freo lo act on anv measure which was presented, on ils own merits. Ho referred to tho attacks on Air. Webster, many of which ho considered unreasonable. Ho did not ap pear as the defender of Mr Webster ; ho disap proved 01 many ol the sentunuuls of Ins 1 anouil nan speech, nnn regretted tncir delivery; but whether he could fairly bo arraigned for incon sistency on tho subject of the Exchequer or any other subject, he had yet to tee tho evi dence. Mr. W's loading argument, in the speeches from which Mr. Marshall had quoted, against the Sub Treasury, was the abandonment uy it ol the great duty ol the Gnvcrniuent to regulate tho Exchanges and Currency ; and although, in some other points, inconsistencies might appear, there was none between this doc trine and the Exchequer provisions, or his Fa tieuil Hill speech, etc. etc. .1r Marshall further eulogized Air M obster s mighty intellect and talents, but argued that this Exchequer scheme was tiothini' tnoro or less than a Government Ihnk, and as such it as r.nrnlnl.ited by Mr W's former speeches, to the djctnnes of which ho (Mr. M.) now held. He devoted considerable time to 'defin ing his position,' assorting, as usual, much in dependence, and implying sumo enmity to Mr. uiay, ccc. cic. Jau, "ii.

Mr. Kenntdv of Md., from tho Committee on Commerce, re orted a bill "making provision" for tho warehnusoing of imported goods.' He stated the bill met Ihe unanimous concur rence ol the members of thu Committee, although this was not the case with souio of Ihe argu ments of tho accompanying icport. Amotion to print 0,000 extra copies ofthe report, which i understood to be 0110 of much ability, lies over. Mr. Wish presented several memorials from ISull'ilo and other parls ol Erie County in favor ol the Exchequer.

Tho act of 1821, fur iho exercise of ciitninal jurisdiction, ho did not conceive was us much nn interference ns had been nssci led. Jurisdiction was derived from person as well ns from place. Air II. said that Gicat Hritain claimed Dorpetual allegiance over her subjects eve ry where, beyond bur borders ns well as in them, and in this view of Ihu case jurisdic tion was innucent nnd justifiable. Besides, the samu jurisdiction was open to us, to ex ercise over our people sotlled in tbu territo ry. The civil jurisdiction was subject to the same innocent jurisdiction, lie conceived. It was 11 0 1 a jurisdiction set up to try the tillo of land or in land, but a jurisdiction limited to thu temporary possession of tho land occupied. The subjects ofGroat Brit ain were entitled to certain occupant rights, between the hunting and in times given to rest. If a contest arose in tho moan time be tween two British subjects, there might bu a jurisdiction over the difficulty. Air Linn stated a caso of difficulty.
