NEW YORK HERALD^ Kew York, m otlntxliiy, July S, INitt. Tki? >tv? TaillT IIIII ? Its Final Fuu(< Doubtful. The greatest anxiety exists in relation to the action oi Uio Senate upon this important measure. It lifts Ihmhi mtde the special order for Monday next, and every day alter until finally disposed of. Mo one ever doub ed its passing tbe House of Representatives, hut its passage through the Senate is, and w.ll be up to tbe ld?t moment, very doubtful. This whole que-tion inny turn upon the vole of the Vine President, and, if ?o, its fi'M is |ireltv well settled. The vote nt ihe Senate will bo so equally div,<led upon this b II, an?l the complete absence of eve ything savoring in any way of [??rty feeling, w ii l- .t.r :;ie qu? -tiou open to the latest moment, tin- cli?M-st political calculators coinpl-tely in the dark, and beyond tneir r> c'xonmg. It ? ? iinpo-mIiI 1.1? ?> ihi 11j? vote*. SeVcitd of tbe strongsii dtfiiKx'i ntv Senators have announced their determination to vote dead against be b il u* it pmiwd tlu- lower liou^e, and sueb i? the liRtion ol the two parte*, that wry material dictations may bo required to ensure its ?UCee-g It i* p>*? ble, ahbough not very probable, that the ad valorem principle m iy be restricted in its 0|xslat.on, and that ?pec i tic rates wdl, in rotne in tAncrs, be adopted It Will be perceived, on reference to tlio proceedings of yesterday in the Senati , that petitions have already been presented to 'hat etfect We are fern fill of the ro.-ult of this thorough change in the method of levying and collecting duties, and believe that much confusion and difficulty will be exrv-rienced in enter irig goods under ttiu new system. It is a very great experiment, one that may lead to very serious embarrassments in the finances of the government, and require an immediate repeal or a retort to some other way of raising revenue. We are opposed to such extensive experiments when there are so many and ruch vital interests at stake. There is no probability of any system becoming permanently established unless it is gradually brought into operation, and made | erfect as it becumes more generally enforced. No business of any particular importance was transacted in the Senate yesterday, and the House used up nearly the v, hole session in an unsuccess. ful attempt to fix a day for final adjournment. The Political Slovi mrnta of th? Day?Who It to b? the Next Pr*?l?l?mt7 Several events have recently transpired, which ^ *o?a a determination on the part of the friends of General Scott to be beforehand in securing, lor their favorite, the suffrages of the whig party lor the next Presidency, even in the face of his resent faux pn. From what has lately come to our knowledge, we are justified in concluding that most of the whigs, who were attached to the old United States, are in favor of Scott,while the other branch of the party still cling to the fortune* of Henry Clay, but in the event of his resig. ( nation or declination, they would go for J. J. Crittenden, of Kentucky, or, perchanco, General Taylor, of the Rio Grande. Wltllill a frw 11 rl 1/? llf.. baa been u dinner party at the house of a #entieman, formerly, we believe, a director of ibe United Slates Bank, in New Jersey, not far from tho fail* of the Passaic, at which, a distinguishod tneinbir of the United States Senate, for o ne days past sojourning in this city, and an ExCollector of this port, were present. The rest of the party was mostly composed of Jersey men, who are warm friends of General S ott. At this dinner, it -s more than probable that the views of the d.lfercut individuals present, in regard to the next Pres dency were freely expressed, and, doubtless, a plan ol operations was agreed upon. It will be remembered that Go neral Scott is a indent of New Jersey, and that Mr. Clay's nomirtHtion for the Presidency, in 1S40, was defeated, in fouie measure, in the Convention, by the New Jersey delegation, who were in favor of Scott, a citizen of tWeir own State. Immediately after that time, the whig party in New Jersey was divided into two factions?the Pennington party and llie IixUted party, the latter of which gained the fir^t victory over the former, in the election of Will am Wright to Congress from the 6th di-trict, in.13-13, in opposition to Win. B. K.nney, the nominee of the Pennington party. The war has been wu_r nir ever since, but the Halstui party hate gained the ascendancy, their candi. Jutes' now filling the miwi impo;tant offices in he State. Tli'* IVnnington party are in favor of General Scott, and it may. therefore, b? that the JIi?l?t<d paity will oppose him. At the time of tH* Convention to noniinnte a President in 1340, the Pejm'rigfon interest was in the ascendant.? Th? New Jersey delrgation was, therefore, mo?tjy comi>o?ed of that section of the party, and through the influence of a certain politician, or residi-nt of Elizabethtown, where General .Scott formerly resided, the del -gntina was prevailed upon 'o cast their vncs for Scott, thus defeating Mr. Clay. Hence the lukewarmness of the PentiUigton party in fighting under the Clay banner in the campaign of 1844. file gentleman at whose house the dinner party ft?.rendy alluded to took place, is supposed to be a prominent member of the Pennington section of the wh g party, and it is that section of the New Jersey whig", in connection with several whigs of this city, and the distinguished Senator already mentioned, who are working 9ilently but with great energy to secure the nomination of General Scott. In connection with this branch of the subject, we may mention that at a dinner of the Cincinnati Society of New Jersey on the 4th instant, at Newark, Ex-Governor Pennington proposed the health of General Scott. This, at a mixed party ofdemocrat* and whigs of all shades of politics, was highly significant. Another very significant mutter, as we have heard, is that the editor of General Scott'* organ in this City, proposed to those who got up the meeting, tome short time since, to nominate G?v | nerml Taylor lor the next Presidency, that if the I meeting would refrain from mentioning General Taylor's name in connection with the nomination (or President, he would himself, perhaps, address the meeting, and refer to it in complimentary terms in his paper of the next morning. This tntve organ of General Scott has entered elaborately on the defence of the General's conl duct in the plate of aoup affair, and has at the ^ same time deprecated the further prosecution of the war with Mexico, evidently with the apprehension that if it continue. General Taylor will emerge from the thick chaparrel of the Rio Grande, in his chip hat, with such a meed of r fame a* will entirely dissipate Genera] Scott's f prospects of the Presidency. Thus it will he perceived that we have made out a complete chain of evidence tending to prove that the friends of General 8<:oU are already in the fl?ld, and working with some little energy to seeure his nomination.

These movements, with ?ome others that nave come to our knowledge, in such a way thai we do not consider ourselves justified in giving them, lead us to the conclusion that a strong effort n by the friends of General Scott to secure his nomination for the Presidency This will probably cause a ?plit in the whig party, as | there nre many who will not support his ! nomination. Whether the democrats will take tiH outage of this dissension remains to be seen. I It is highly probable that tnev mny owe succew in I the next Presidential campaign to this divinion in ; tlie raniu of their opponents. But ;h<?y themselves may be just as n.u*h d.vided in their choice of a candidate.?Who can tell 1 Tune alone. i It will therefore be as well, lor a while, to keep eye on tha movements of the politicians in New Jetaioy, but in the tnoantimo to keep our finger to on no-o til) fho democrats perfect one of two mail arrnugi-uienls of '.heir own. Th?

Lucerne an independent nation, itf> people have beeu characterised for h mart .U spirit, mingled with n love of country that i* an refreshing :o the patriot as a ?las.-> of croton on a hot sultry day. On eveiy occasion, when their service# in the camp and in the field have been required. they have ru.-hed in thousands arid teiiii of thousand* to enrol themselves ill the rank?, and uphold the honor of their country. This spnt was coeval with the existence of the ! nation, and has kept pace with, the increase ol the country. Who can hut ndmire the indomitable energy and ,-erseveranee displayed by the colonial troop* in the. war of the revolution 1?the midnight march over the frozen snow in the midst of the most inclement weather, with the scantiest elo'hing, barely sufficient to cover their nakedness 1?Who ( is there that can but admire the devotedness of the men whose foot tracks were marked with their blood as they marched to give battle to the invaders of their soil 1 1 Kecent events have proved that this spirit of ! patriotism is as fervid as ever in the breasts of I the American people, and needs but the call of J their coun ry to make it burst forth as brilliantly as in former times. When Congress recognized ] the war with Mexico, and empowered the President to receive the services of filty thousand citizen soldiers to carry it to a successful and honorable close, the call was answered in the most prompt manner. Multitudes poured in to join the ranks, and in a short time a sufficient number hail otfered themselves to the President, that I would have formed an army capable of defeating the combined forces ol the greatest nations in Europe. In the West and South-west particularly, the number that otfered their service* boro no proportion to the number called U]>on. The State of Illinois alone offered forty-two companies more than were called upon, whose : services the Gov'nor was of course compelled to decline. In Mississippi thousand* offered their I 1 services, who were in like manner declined, and instead of casting lots to see who should go to the war, they cast lots to see who should stay at home. j j The captain of one company, after all that were ^ , needed had been received and enrolled into the < service of the United States, actually otfored the ! | large mm of one thousand dollars to another j company, if iu members would remain at home and let the other go. This was declined, and of i course the fortunate company went on its way. The treasury of the same State was at the same 1 time empty, and difficulty was apprehended about raising money for equipping the volunteers. The citizens immediately determined to meet the emergency, and by voluntary contributions sup- j plied the Governor with funds sutficient for the purpose. Several wealthy planters tendered their bonds for one hundred thousand dollars, which was as good as ca-h, with the offer that if I the General Government refunded the money, well and good, and if not, they were willing to give it to their oountry. These are individual instances of the patriotism , of the people ; the aggregate amount is still more j astonishing. Ve are informed from a reliable source, that the President, in answer to the entreaty of a gen- ! tleman to have a regiment received into the ser- I vice of the United States, staled that at tht prtttnt time the bookr <f the IVar 1 rjHirtmrnt contain tht 1 namtt rf two hundred thousand vo!untetrt,from all < jhirli nj tht country far tht Mexican JF<ir, if though the Liu- only caUtd fjr fifty thousand, and thai fit < ciuld not U'tJtr tht pnttni cnrumttuncet rtctivi ( tht name af annthtr man. i , The companies number in their ranks some t of our best and ruo?t respectable citizens. j ' The Bar, the B nch, and th? Pulpit, and even the Petticoat have each their re- 1 preseutatives?some as privates and some as officers. Members of Congress, and of the State L?*g statures have quitted their legi?l itive offices, ' shouldered the musket, and gone to the seat ! i ot war. One of the forrunute companies from Mississippi has for its captain the clerk of a Probate Court, and for its Lieutenant the clerk of ' . another court, while among the privates are se. 1 veral members of the Legislature. This is the spirit that animated the men who | < accomplished a successful revolution in the year j *76, and defeated the veteran soldiers of the Old , World, and the same spirit that would in the present day win additional credit and renown for i I the country. An army animated by this spirit is invincible. With such the country is safe from a'Malanceof power," and every other measure that our rivals would like to impose on it. This is a great country. < The California Gxpkdiriot.?Col. Stevenson's California expedition is to be composed of mechanics of nil kinds, professional men, and all other* who feel disposed to enlist in the service of their country and go to Cfdifornia, with the inten| tion of remaining. Among other articles to go there will be one or ] two printing presses, accompanied by men to opc- j J rate them, and men of tnlent to conduct them. We fire happy to say thnt the idea of establishing j a government paper is not entertainod by Colonel | Stevenson, but that the paper, when established, < will be perfectly independent.
