NEW YORK HERALD. ??w York, Thursday, April *3, 1?M? Kroi i Washington?The Oregon notice. The ?>iegon notice is still hanging by the eye. lids between the Senate and the House. The Se nate refuses to recede, and have api>ointed a com mittee of conference, consisting ol Messrs. Ber rien, Haywood, and Corwin. This committee will not recede an inch; and it the House do not concur in the Senate's form of notice, the resolution will fall to the ground. We wait for the denouement., Oi'R Mexican Relations ?The pacific charac ter of the news received from England by the Cale donia, together with the prospect that the legisla tive and executive departments of the national go vernment will not be able to unite, in adopting any certain or stated line of conduct in regard to the Oregon question, has turned the attention of the public to the condition of our relations with Mexico, which have now assumed a very important cha racter. It would appear that the same desire to avoid responsibility, that marked the course of the execu tive in our relations with England, has character ized hun in the measures taken to maintain the national honor with Mexico. Instead of demanding appropriations from Congress, sufficient to equip an army el tea or fifteen thousand men, General Tay lor was desjwtched to the Rio Grande with a pal try three thousand men; many of whom have de serted, and many fallen victims to the climate. Such a contemptible display of the military re sources of this great country, instead of intimidat ing the Mexicans and striking terror into their government, had quite the contrary ellect. Indeed, so insignificant did this force appear in the estima tion of the Mexican officers, that they were not afraid to post their forces on their own side of the river, immediately opposite the camp of General Taylor, and point their cannon in such a position as to sweep the American camp and army to the shades. Such is tl.e view the pusillanimous Mexi cans, as we are accustomed to call them, take of Mr. Polk's measures of intimidation. By the latest accounts from the army of occupa tion, we learn that the Mexican army is now eight thousand strong, and continually increasing. To oppose this large force we have about three thou sand men, who, by daily desertion and sickness, are decreasing fast. To increase our difficulties, the | Mexican authorities have committed an act which, in all probability, will lead to a general engagement between the two armies. It appears that two men, who were the videttes thrown out by.the advanced guard of dragoons, have been captured by the Mex icans; and on being demanded by General Worth, who proceeded with a Hag of truce for the purpose, i the Mexican officers who answered him, declined \ to convey any propositions to their commander, until the American army should withdraw from its present position. This, of course, was not done. Meanwhile, the greatest activity appeared to pre- , vail in the Mexican camp. Four redoubts were thrown up in one day and one night, in expectation, no doubt, of a general engagement. If, under these circumstances, an engagement should take place, we must reasonably conclude that it will end disastrously to the American name, and that a considerable portion of our little, but brave, army, will be sacrificed. The eternal boasting without acting, and the in trigues of the President makers at Washington, have lowered the American name immeasurably in the eyes of Europe, and defeated the settlement of the Oregon question. The same policy towards j Mexico?the same big talking?has inspired the j feebl' Mexicans with contempt for us; andthepro ihii'ty is, that if the anticipated engagement has taken place, and the American forces have been de "*i >d. a long and bloody war, which may cost mil- , .101. follara,will have to be resorted to before our relations with Mexico will be settled. It would ap j*ar, in '"ed, that the same vacillation which cha racterizt I the administration of John Tyler will at- j tend that ol .lames K. Polk. ? More Disclosures from McKjjszik.?Another j Book?.VIcKenzte, the Canadian refugee, haa pub- | fished another brochure, purporting to come from Jeraey city, but printed probably in this city, con taining further disclosures, as he callB them, of the movements, principles, and associates of Van Bu ren and his dynasty, in this State and throughout die Union. We do not find anything remarkable or new in this publication. There are some few private and ' confidential letters that have not appeared in the ' former pamphlet, and there are four of Webb's, of no particular importance, and merely indicative of his quixotism, when he was going about the world, from New York to Washington, trying to get up a fight about Van Buren with some one of his oppo nents, so that he could have a crack at him. The great bulk of the materials throughout is but a re hash of his former |>amphlet. He even reprints again a great portion of the same letters which he published before, and among them the letters attri buted to the editor of this paper, coupled, however, with infamouB and base falsehoods, which McKen zie knew to be false. The whole batch of these ' disclosure* contains nothing remarkably new, and nothing th at can alter or change the opinion of the [ public on Mr. Van Buren's dynasty in this country during the last few years it was in existence. That dynasty was acknowledged by all who are acquaint ed with its secret springs to have been selfish, de ceitful, hypocritical, silly, impudent, speculative, jobbing, rascally, atrocious, corrupt, cowardly, vin dictive, contemptible, pitiful, and all the other simi lar epithets that can be found from the beginning to the end of Webster's quarto dictionary. Many of the men who formed that dynasty were clever, gentlemanly fellows. Martin Van Buren is a gentle man, Hoytis a gentleman, Croswell is a gentleman, and take them separately, and they are all clever men and gentlemen. But it is the singular destiny of hu* man nature, that when you take a certain quantity of very gentlemanly men, 'and form them inte a poli tical coUrie, in search of power and plunder, they be. come a clique of the deepest rascality in every country Mr. Van Buren is now quietly enjoying hia otium cum diqwiate at Lindenwald, riding out on horse. back every day, and exhibiting himself in the style of an old English gentleman, who has retired from public life. Many of his associates, during the last twenty years have likewise retired into private life, and are endeavoring to make themselves as comfortable as possible in their old age, with the remnants of their fortunes. There is no use now in disturb ing the evenings of those men's lives. Tyler endea vored to create a dynasty on the same principles as Mr. V&n Buren, but failed; and Mr. Polk is the only living representative of the Van Buren princi ples now in existence in this country. The Polk dynasty will probably end in the same way that th* Van Buren dynasty did, for it seems to he possessed of the same principles, and touched with the same dry rot. McKenzie s book is not worth the paper and print on which it is issued. It is a miserable rehash, with a little freah matter here and there, and is full of .inpotence and malevolence. Steam** O**oo.i.?We are happy m being "able to state that this splendid steamer was released from iier unnatural position last evening, by the efforts of Mr. St urges, who superintended the removal ol the Hem\ Clay. Mr. Stnrgea fastened four canal boats to her, and the full tide floated her off in gallant style. On an examination being made, it appears .lidi ?h* is comparatively uninjured, and that from eight u ten thouaand dollars cxpenw will put her in '!"><? order, and as good as ever. It i* expected Hi* win resume her trip* in thirty daya at farthest. Alter tli t iug oft, the joiners and other work resumed their na 'ral position. We are gratified that thia splendid 'e^mer-the object *f pride and admira tion of every peraon that has seen her-Will, in a *hort time, be agaia in running order I Tmt Catholic Church?Dr. Rydrr's Lxctttrr.? The .lecture delivered by the Rev. Dr. Ryder, at St. Peter'* Church, on Sunday evening last, was one of the moat masterly polemical discourses ever delivered in this city. The subject selected by Dr. Ryder was " Auricular Confession," which is one of the dearest and most sacred doctrines ot the Catholic Church, and at the same time, one which afforded free scope (or displaying the power and eloquence ot the gifted clergyman. We publish it in another |?art of this day's paper. The conduct of the Catholics in this city for some years past, when contrasted with that of their op ponents, is highly creditable to them. We see none of those disgraceful ebullitions of religious rancor and hostility occurring in the Catholic churches, that we see frequently in the churches of other persuasions. While the dissenters are wrang ling among themselves upon some unimportant matter, and fighting about the difference between twtedltdum and twtedledet, the' Catholics pursue the even tenor of their way, defending their faith from the accusations brought against it, and extend ing their influence in every direction. Hence the wonderful spread of Catholicity in the United States, within a few years. The violent fanatics belonging to the dif ferent persuasions in this country, have injured true religion very seriously, by the manner in which ihey have attempted to make converts and proselytes. Instead of using calm, sober, temperate and dispassionate reasoning, they have resorted to the use of opprobious epithets and billingsgate slan der. They have addressed the passions and preju dices of their congregations, instead of influencing their reason and their consciences. Nor are the Catholics altogether free from this charge. On a certain occasion we saw the highest dignitary of their church descend from the altar, with the fra grance of the holy incense remaining on his gar ments, and engage in the discussion of secular mat ters in the filthy arena of politics, resembling more a Roman gladiator, than a devout follower oi the meek founder of Christianity. As might naturally be expected, his conduct on the occasion created a great excitement, and the mighty eilect of public opinion marked the public disapproval of his con duct. We have reason to believe, however, that the functionary in question has long since regretted his conduct on that occasion, and has been reinsta ted in the estimation in which he was previously held. Be this as it may, one thing is certain, that while every persuasion has an unlimited right to promulgate its doctrines and make all the converts it can, public opinion will not sanction a resort to any but the legitimate means for that purpose. Wehstke and Inqkrsoll.?We are glad to per ceive that the President has refused to lend himself as an instrument, to be used for the purpose of black ening the character of Mr. Webster. In the first place,we do not believe that Mr. Webster ever com mitted himself while Secretary of State, to such an extent as was charged upon him by Mr. Ingersoll.? i The uses and purposes to which the secret service money is applied, unaccompanied by an explanation of the circumstances which called for its application, | might nafurallyflead to a suspicion'of corruption and malfeasance. But it would be unfair to Mr. Web ster, or to any other man placed in similar circum stances, with the weighty responsibility of a great international question to adjust, to furnish his ene mies with garbled extracts of his correspondence and State papers, without the production and publi cation oi such correlative documents, as could not j be made public without manifest detriment to the i public interests. But even supposing that Mr. Webster was so im- j provident of his reputation as to be guilty of a mis application of the secret service fund, of what use i would be an exposure 1 The country has a precious treasure in the reputation of her public men, which she should guard charily, and with jealous watch fulness. The reputation of one of her greatest statesmen is not a thing to be lightly trifled with.? But while we rejoice that this matter has been al lowed quietly to drop, we cannot but regret the man ner in which it originated, and the virulcnce of per sonal animosity displayed on both Bides. In the first place it was highly impolitic in Mr. Dickinson to drag the Ashburton treaty into his speech. No pos sible good could arise from the discussion dt that question after it had been worn thread-bare in the Senate; and to quote portions of a speech of a mem ber of the other House, was, to say the least, very injudicious. It was contrary to all precedent. But we must say that the reply of Mr. Webster was al together unworthy of that great statesman. It was too fith'womanith for the man who gained such high distinction in the celebrated passage-at-arms with Mr. Hayne. The dignity of the senatorial order should never be compromised by the effervesence of personal feeling. The Senate chamber should never be made an arena for the exhibition of gladiatorial feats of acrimonious antagonism. But in jousts of this nature, the bludgeon is by no means so effective a weapon as the finely tempered blade of Damascus. On the whole, we are pleased that the affair has been quashed, and we hope that the matter will rest here. Wbbb vs. Bacon?Libel Sdit.?This trial is set down specially for this day, in the Superior Court, when a large array of witnesses will be in atten dance. It will be one of the most humorous and amusing trials on record, involving a series of de velopments in relation to party tactics, which will throw the recent denouement at Washington, on this subject, quite into the shade. We shall report the case in full, for the special benefit of the parties in terested, and the edification of the politicians in general. Movements or Travellers.

Recent events are Riving to Sonera very considerable importance, and will make it one of the moat important points on the river. A new fort i* about to be established at Table Reck ten miles above Sonora-and we learn that foar companies will aoon lesve Fort Lsavenworth snd be stationed at this point H i? understood that Fort Kearney, (tuck is to be 1 its name) will be the starting point for Oregon, or the terminus of the chain of posts extending to Oregon. We I hear of quite s numoer who propose going to Sonora in the confident expectation of its speedily becoming a MunShing town, and the county seat of Atchison coun I ty. We heartily ad viae t v? ry artisan and mechanic who | is not doing well, to vuit Sonora, where they will find betk employment and money?ao aoon at least ai the , tioope move up to Fort Keerny.-(*) Dtm* erat, Jpnl 4.

Pack Thuiu.-There wmi a wry (tail house at the Park, la?t night The attraction waa that capital come dy of Shahspeare's, "The Merry WIth of Windsor"? the occasion, Mr. Hackett'a benefit The play waa powerfully caat, all the beat talent of the stock being engaged in it, and Mr. Vandenhoff assuming the part of Ford, the jealous husband, a character of a very similar nature to Kitely, in "Every Mania hit Humor," a line in which Mr. Vandenhofl'particularly excels " Sir John Falstsff," the amorous knight, as every one knows, is one of .Mr. Hackett's chrjt d'uuvrt, and he last night gave the most convincing proof of his juat conception of the character. There is such a richness in Hackett's laugh, such truth to nature in hia every motion on the stage, andlhe possesses such a perfect command over his countedance, that he personates the jolly knight to per fection. At the close of the play, he was loudly called for, and, passing before the curtain, made his bow of thanks to the hoase The public will be gratified to learn that Mr. Hackett has been re-engaged for two nights more. To-day is the two hundred and second anniversary of the birth of Shakspeare, and the tragedy of "Henry IV" will be performed to-night, as appropri ate to the occaaion. Mr. Vandenhoff appears as Hot spur, Mr. Hackett as Falstafi*. On Monday evening next, Shakspeare's celebrated tragedy of "Antony and Cleopa tra," will be produced at the Park. For a lonjf time past the most extensive preparations have been in pro gress for this purpose. This tragedy is capable of great scenic effect; and all that the artist and the costumer, in their respective spheres, can do, will be done to bring out "Antony and Cleopatra" in a style of superior mag nificence, and the utmost fidelity of historical illustra tion. The part of Antony will be performed by Mr. George Vandenhoff We hire no doubt that the tale of Egypt's beauteous queen, told so touchiogly iby ^Shaks peare, and produced so truthfully by the Park manage ment, will draw crowded houses. Bowery Thkatbe ?This establishment ?u filled to the utmost last evening by the (rienda and tdmirers of Mr. Clarke, a gentleman long connected with this thea tre, and one of the most promising young actora of tho day. They were determined to make his benefit a i bumper, and we think they succeeded to the satisfaction of themselves and Mr. Clarke also. The performances on the occasion were warmly applauded, a'd evety thing went off as well as couid ho desired. The bill for this evening is an unusually good one, consisting of the celebrated tragedy of "Jane Shore," end the drama of the "Six Degrees of Crime." Mr. J. It. Scott will take the part of the Duke of Oloater, and Mrs. Jones that of Alicia. Undoubtedly the house will be crowded. Gbeeivwich Theatbb?The performances, last even, ing, at this beautiful theatre, were highly interesting and attractive. Yankee Hill played the part of Seth Slope, in " Done for a Hundred," with inimitable power I and skill. Two other choice and admirable comedies were performed, which drew down bursts of applause from a large and delighted audience. This theatre, un- j der its excellent management, and with such a superior company as it possesses, deserves great success, and we are happy also to see that it meets with it. For a rich bill of fare for this evening, vide the advertisement in another column and the bills. The Annual Concert or thi German Society, which took place on Saturday evening last, in many respects, fell short of the expectations we had moat reasonably formed. The Tabernacle was well filled by an appreciative audience, made up principally of the elite of our German population, ol musical amateurs, artists, and critics. We do not think it just or patriotic of our Ger- ! man friends, that foreign music (not German) should so eminently prevail in their programme. We looked in vain for the names of Moxart.Sponr Meyerbeer, Mendelsoohn, Stc., among the composers, whose works were presented; and although there wai a sprinkling of German music in the list, it was by no means enough for a German so- i ciety concert. The overture to the "Queen of Cyprus," I with which the concert began, wu well and effectively given. This was followed by the "Ave Maria." by Cher ubini, sung by Miss Northall, in a very fair but by no means excellent style. This young lady is too apt to lose her exact intonation, especially in the upper notes. The inimitable Timm next played Beethoven's concerto in C minor, (first movement) in a manner in which he alone is master of. This was indeed a delicious musical treat The purity of Mr. T.'s style, the certainty of his velvet touch, and the exactness oi his execution, must ; ever win the admiration of every true lover of music.? The ad libitum cadenca, which he introduced, was a gem not easily overlooked or forgotten. The orchestra , did not do Mr. Timm full justice in the accompaniment, i It is with regret that we must censure the manner in j which the duet from "Norma," the "Deh Conte," was 1 executed by Miss Nerthall and Miss Korsinsky. Never, ; in our musical remembrance, did we hear a more un- | successful attempt. The music lies entirely out of tho ; compass of both ladies' voices, and if they could not ; transpcie it, it was certainly most injudicious to at- ! tempt singing it at all. The lact of a composition being a favorite, and popular, should never induce young and I hopeful vocalists to risk their fame on a public trial, un- I less they are sure of being able to do justice to the com poser. It is needless for us to repeat, that the whole of 1 this duet was the worst failure of the evening, sung ' out of tune, and with painfully strained voices, almost from the beginning to the end. We now come to the star of the evening, Senhor Noronha, a distinguished Portuguese violinist, who made his debut on tnis occasion. The style of this gentleman's playing is as remarkable as his execution. He is unique iu his way, unlike any violinist we have ever heard. His style of composition, and manner of playing, belongs to no acknowledged school; yet it is decidedly original and eccentric, yet full ,of evidences of great, though only half developed genius. He has a graceful execu tion, much expression, a quick finger, carries a bold and vigorous bow, but, unfortunately, possessed a violin of rather inferior tone, whicli greatly marred the effect of many well executed passages. He seems to be more determined to astonish his auditory with extraordinary feats upon the instrument, than to please or delight them with a smooth, well played, and classical Adagio. This was our opinion, after hearing bis variations on "The ; Prayer" from "Moses in Egypt;'* and his "Valsaa Bur. lescas," only strengthened onr first impressions. The | gentleman unquestionably possesses great genius, and much originality, which, it tempered by pure, classic and correal style, may soen elevate him to the rank of i one of the first violinists of the age ; but, at present, the erotni/uerie of his playing only astonishes and amuses, but is incapable of making a deep, aerious, or lasting impression. Of the remaiaing performances con tained in the second part, we mav especially men { tion Lindpainter's overture to " Le Paria," " full of sound and fury," but well executed, and with much precision; and the overture to " Oberon," ever new, ever glorious, and welcome to all true lovers of music. Miss Korsinski sang an aria of Nioolini, in a very fine style?but we regret that this lady, a Herman, should not, at a German concert, have sung at least one piece of German composition. Mr. i Hill, aa the conductor, seemed to give very general satisfaction. The Kcans.?The Keans have been playing & most 1 | successful engagement in New Orleans, and ate proba bly by t*is time in St. Louis. We have seen a most mas terly criticism of Macbeth, by Mr Kean, and Lady Mac beth, by Mrs. Kean, published in one of the New Or- 1 i leans papers, in which tke "quiet readings" of Mr. Kean are spoken of as those in which he exoeh. All will re collect the cool, philosophic readings which Mr. Kean ' gave in Hamlet, while playing his last engagement in * this city. We shall have the Keans here in the latter part of next month. | Welch acd Mann's Ciacui.?The fine circus of Welch and Mann proceeds to Washington, where they will open on Monday next. Their success in Philadelphia haa been so great, that we have no doubt they will) be equally successful in Washington. The fine style in which they are got up, and the peculiarly interesting character of their entertainments must attract large houses wherever they go. The unprecedented succes which has attended me performances of M'lle Augusta, in Philadelphia, has induced the management of the Walnut to re engage her for lour nights more. Signor Blitz and Dr. Valentine had arrived in New Or leans at the latest advices, and were to give entertain ments at the St. Charles theatre. i The last concert ef the Swiss Bell Ringers at Mobile, was to have taken place on the 16th inst. The Rrgiiter and Journal says that they design returning to Europe in a few weeks. Superior Court. Before Judge Vanderpoel. Apbil 22.?Mary Burtit r*. Jarnei McNanut. Novel Lav Cat*.?This was an action of ejectment, to try a right of dower, brought by plaintiff to recover the title to certain property, (three houses,) situated in Houiton street, under the lollowing circumstances It appeared that plaintiff, who 'is now a widow for the secood time, waa formerly married to a party named Thomas Russell, her first husband, who granted, during his life time, a deed of the property now in suit to the defendant, with out the consent of plaintiff, who waa then his wife.? Proof of the marriage to Russell, dated in the year 1115; by a clergyman named Rev. W. Tebuss, was put in, showing also that ahe lived with him as his wife until the I time of bis death, when they had a numerous family.? I The defence itt up was, that Russell had been married to another lady named Stephens before his marriage with the plaintiff, who Deinc alive at the time, rendered the marriage with plaintiff invalid; and that Miss Stephens, or ratber as is alleged the first Mrs Russell, was living for several years alter Russell's marriage with the plain tiff The validity of the marriage witb Miss Stephens is contested upon the part of the plaintiff, on the ground that no certificate of said marriage it now, as is alleged, in existence. The law on the subject of matrimony, and ihe requirementa of the statute being then some what Jiffs rent from the present. The plaintiff appears to be an intelligent sort of lady, aud sets near hor coun sel. Verdict to-morrow. Before Chief Justice Jones. Ltrrridge vs. Milwording?This tedious case was brought to a close yesterday, when the jury rendered a verdict for plaiotiff, $1,864 64 damages, and 6 cents costs. It was, as already noticed, an action brought against the defendant, aa owner or proprietor of the Bowling Green fountain tor damages sustained by plain , tiff in consequence of the Cioton water overflowing therefrom, and damaging a large quantity of sugsr be onging to plaintiff, which lay in his cellars in Broad street. Priet f Co. vs. Crete* Inmrance Co ?This was an ac tion to recover the amount of a tolicv of insurance from defendanta. It appeared that plaintiffs insured premises situated in Broad street, in Newark, which took fire in April, 1846. The company, it is said, object to the pay ment of tho ram insured ($3,000) on the ground that a partition was removed acroas the building, which was a large establishment for sawing mahogany and for other purposea ; and also upon the ground that a bake house waa erected on the adjoining premises. Plaintiffs re join that said bake house was erected by the owner of the adjoining premises, without their knowledge, and over whom tney could exercise no control. Adjourned , over. Common Hlesie.

How very im portant is it, then, tbet suitable accommodation be pro vided for reporter!, that a fair and faithfnl report may be given. It ia very annoying in a crowded room for a re porter to be obliged to take hi' aeat among tha audi ence, or, perhaps, even to stand up, and, with hii pencil and note book in band, take down ipeecbaa while being prested upon bv a crowd of persons. We heartily second the suggestion made by an evening paper, that those to whom the management of the various anniver saries are entrusted, provide seat! and a table near the speakers, and out of the crowd, for the accommodation of reporters. Democbatic Coi??f.ntion?The Democratic Consti tutional Convention met last evening at Tammany Hall, and completed their ticket for delegate! to the State Convention, which stands as foUowi: Charles O'Connor. Lorenzo B. Shepard, Henry Nicoll, Robert H. Morris, Samuel J. Tilden, John A. Kennedy, Benjamin F. Cornell, John L. Stevens, Campbell P. White, D. R. F. Jonei, A- F. Vache, Wm. S. Conely, Solomon Townsend. The convention meet again thu evening to nominate three more, provisionally to be voted for, in case the Legislature passes the bill now before them, giving 10 instead of 13 representatives to the city and county of New York. Whio Convention?The Whig Constitutional Con vention met last evening a* the Broadway House, and added five names to their ticket for State Convention, which now stands as follows: Hiram Ketchum, Richard S. Williams, Shepard Koapp, Samuel F. Mott, John C. Greene, James De Peyster Ogden. Common Council.?The Common Council held a caucus last evening, andebose their chairman for the en suitig year.

Lost Max.?A man named Samuel Froan, aged 4fi years, left his home, No. 65 Goerckstreet, on Tuesday. He has been deranged for some time. Accident.?A boy named James Wait fell from the roof of a new house|in Fulton street, on the inside, upon a scaffolding about 30 teet below. He was considerably bruised and injured internally. He was taken to tho City Hospital. Broken Leo.?A woman passing by the name of " Johnny," and residing at a house of ill fame in Antho ny-street, was brought to the City Hospital yesterday with a broken leg, caused by scuffling with a good look ing fellow, who had come all the way from the West and taken up his quarters there. Interesting Announcement.?We perceive the fol lowing interesting announcement posted up in large bills through the city.

Bulletin, April 14 ] The Galveeton Qaxette of the 11th instant received advicea from the army to the 30th March, by an arrival from Brazos 8&otiigo. The ntin body of tho army wai lying immediately opposite Matamoros. The Mexicans bad withdrawn all their troops from the Texas side of ? the river, without firing a gun; and the opinion waa prevalent that there would be no fighting. A very 1 strict look out was kept for the stragglers and hangers- I on of the army, and none allowed to remain in or near ' the camp. , The report that General Taylor had moved the army from before Matanoras to a position farther down, proves to be a mere rumor. Of this tho Galveston Oe- : sette iays : " They had encamped directly opposite the city, and report says they waked up one morning and founJ eighteen piece* of heavy Mexican cannon pointed directly into the camp, which might have inspired some doubt of the suitableness of the position, inasmuch as only some few pieces of flying artillery were in the American po*i'ion This, howeier, is only rnmor. The reputation of General Taylor, both lor prudence and courage, repels any doubts either of the safety or honor of the army. "The disposition evinced by the Mexicana is not so Sicific and confiding as we had hoped and expected.? ' esides the abandoning and burning of their custom house on this side of the Kio Grande, the inhabitants be gan to fly, first setting fire to their own dwellings, four of which were consumed, and three others aaved only by the intervention of our army. Some of these people have lived a great while,and were probably born onlthis side of the river, and we had hoped to aee them remain ; in the peaceable possession of their little property, i which waa doubtleis contemplated by Oen Taylor." [From the Galveaton News, April 18.J We are informed that Governor Runnels, the Collec- 1 tor of this port, has received the appointment of agent on the part of the United States Government, to receive the public property ceded by the Republic of Texas to that government, according to the second article of the joint resolutions for annexing Texas, and also in con formity with the eighth section of the 13th article of our constitution, requiring our Legislature to cede to the United States "all public edifices, fortifications, barracks, ports, harbors, navy and navy yards, docks, magazines, arms and armaments, archives and other public property and means pertaining to the public defence, now be longing to the Republic of Texas-, and to make the necessary preparations for transferring to the United States, all custom houses and other places tor the collec tion of impost duties and other foreign revenues."

Reading Railroad fell off i per cent; Harlem, Long Island, Norwich fc Worcester, Pennsylvania 6's, Canton, and Morris Canal, closed at yeeterday's prices. A very slight improvement in prices was realized at the second board. Harlem went up J per cent; Norwich and Worcester |; Morris Canal j ; Reading Bonds ^ with sales to some extent. There appears to be a very great effart making by the bulls to get up prices, and it is very possible they may succeed in running some of the fancies up several per cent.; but while there are so many local causes for a depression, while the money market continues in its present state, while there is a probability of the Independent Treasury bill passing in its most restrictive shape, there can be no permanent im provement in quotations, for any kind of stook. The bears may withdraw from the market,* and permit 'he bulls to put up prices fire, or even ten per cent., for the purpose of coming in again at the top of the market, make large sales, and then hammer prioes down as far as possible. There has been a bill before the Legislature of this State, for some time, authorising the lire insurance com panies of this city to All up their capital stock to where it was previous to the great fire of last July. Many of these comi>anies lost nearly the whole of their capital by that conflsgiation, and the losses have been paid (as far aa they were, able) so promptly, that the burnt district has been nearly all rebuilt in the most subftantial man ner. These companies have applied to the Legislature for permission to renew their capitals to enable them to go on with their business as usual; but for some reason or other, the Legislature has not acted upon the applica tion. This is the season when a great many policies expire, and those anxious to renew them cannot do so Unless some movement is made at once in this matter, those wishing insurance will be compelled to get it Jn some foreign office. Those companies which Have suf fered so severely, and have met all their losses so promptly at great sacriteei, are entitled to all tho aid In the power of the Legislature to grant; and we trust their petitions will receive, at the earliest moment, that consideration they deserve.
