Common Covkcie?There will be a special meeting of the Board of Aldermen this evening, when the subject of the new polioe bill will be taken up There is considerable opposition to the passage of the new bill, and a remtnntranoe from the insuranoe companies of the city has already been presented to the Common Council; besides whiob, we ieara there Is another very numerously signed protest to be presented this event*;.

Oil and Gas.?There seems still to be a great want of attention somewhere with regard to the street lamps In Madison street, there is not more than one ol every five lamps burning after eleven o'clock at night, and In the upper portions of the olty, it is really too bad. That portion is lighted principally with oil, and soarce one in ten can be found lighted after ten o'clock, and many of the streets not b ing regulated in that amotion, render* it very inoonvenlent for those who travel in that part of the oity after night. An occasional lamp niv be found in some of the streets, which will burn all nikbt; and tbnt is tolerably goad evidence, that if the lamp* were tilie-l, aud properly oleaned, there would be no detlolency of light. (These complaints are constantly before the eyes of the corporation, and yet there seems not the slightest attention paid to it although good street light is necessary to the preservation nt lilt and property.

MONEY SUliKBT. Sunday Feb. ?7?0 P. 91. Daring the past week there has been considerable excitement in tbe stook market. Prices have rapidly ;.dvanoed, and as rapidly declined. On Monday an Extra HtrAd announced tbe arrival of a special messenger at Washington from Mexloo, with a treaty Irom the late commissioner of the United States, made by bim with the Mexican government. The effect of this announcement upou the stock market was eleotrioal - prices instantly advanced, and outsiders cams In with confidence and purchased largely. This relieved the market of a great deal of stook, and it wai almost the universal opinion that a farther improvement in prices must be realized. A day or two after the reception of the treaty at Washington, the stock market continued firm, and holders were not disposed to sell, even at a moderate advanoe, as the ratiCoatlon of the treaty appeared almost a i matter of oertainty. The sudd ;n illness of ex- President ! Adams, and the suspension of business caused by that event, delayed all aotion upon tbe treaty, and gave the ; stook speculators of Wall street time to cool off and time for refl ction. The deUy also |tT? the speculators plenty of time to ciroulate all kinds of reports relative to the treaty, and the most ridiculous sto'-ies were made for Wall street consumption. It was first stated that a condition similar to that of the Wilmot proviso waa inserted io the treaty, and that its ratification was entire ly out of the question; a ilcnn other itatements, equally grounJleel.were currently reported, and the pubiio mind became very mach unsettled. The only oorreot synopsis of the treaty was given in the Herald of the J6th inst., and the sosroe from whish that was derived gave it a semiofficial character, and it settled all doubts upon the sutjeot. Assoou as the Wilmot proviso condition exploded, the opposition centered upon the section whloh provided that grants of land in Texas, made by the Mextoan government prior to the year 1836, shall be respeoted by the United States, as the most objectionable part of the treaty, fcnd sufficiently so to condemn it. The balls and bears of Wall street are leap able to form correct opinions relative to the treaty, or anything else conuected with public affairs, than any other olsss, as their interests ohange almost j every hour; to-day they may be in favor of a treaty in almost any shape, and to-morrow opposed to any movement oalculated to bring aotual peace upon any terms. The longer all action upon the treaty is delayed, the le.?s confidence those connected with fiaanoial and I commercial afftirs will have in its ratification; and the ! (ess anxiety the pubiio generally,will have for its favorable | consideration. The public mind is so easily exoitei,and so j easily allayed, that the treaty in a few days will cease to j create any wonder, and even in the ev> nt of its ratlfioa. ; tlon, will soon give place to something .else. This feel, i log is pretty well understood in Wall street, and the i shrewdcst operators of that seotion take advantage of ! the inflation in prices produced by the temporary excitement The treaty has been of advantage to both j bulls and bears during the week, as it enabled the for* mer to retliso at a handsome advance, and the latter to mate new contracts at higher prices. There is no doubt but that the anDrehtmsion relative to the ratifisation of tlie treaty, bu been the prime cans* of the decline la prices for most of the fancies; it is, boweVer, bo reason why prices ehould touch point* lower ttun those ruling previous to the announcement that suob a document had be*a received, or even bad been made. The advance might bare been premature; but be decline is certainly unwarranted by the present position cf thlcg* generally. The treaty of p<*o? with Mexico, already presented to ' the S?nate, has been made with the existing government of that republic, with the bid and advioe of the repre-1 tentative* oftbe British goverhment, and of the prlncii p tl capitalists cf Knrope, and with the content of Santa J Anna, the prlnoip^l leader of the military or oppositiou party in that oouctry. It is true the treaty had not been i ratified by tbe Mexican Congress, and there has been n ' vast deal of Informality In the mode of negotiating, on 1 the part of the United States; but that doe* not affeot the uutbentlcity of the treaty, or make it le*s binding upon i the Mexigan government in the event of it* ratification. , j\ " n i riTtomi, n may on a dangerous one, and measures I should by *11 mean* be cd optad to p rer?nt m reeurren ee o, uch proceedings Should it, howaver, transpire that Mr Trlst b?s been activg under secret orders from tha F.xp. outivo, all these ohjaotloosfall to the ground?and that he | b*j 10 Is pretty generally believed, from the feet that the i I'resi lout ha* sent the treaty Into the Senate with bii , eDdoresinart. Should the term of the treaty ba satis i fae'.rry to the Senat#, the fart of its not having been | ratified by the Mexican Congress nay be an eviction to it* immediate ratification by our government; this will, however, ba mertly a matter of time, and all doubts itj lctive to peace will bi removed H utilities in the maautima will have ceased, the expenditures parI tially reduced, and the end and object of stock speou' Utorj accomplished. Tha Rothschild* rf F.urope, | and tha host of speculators in this country, have for a long time be.?n closely watching tte course o* things in Mfzlco. to catch the first glimmerings of peace, for the purpora of tahi' g advantago of i's iiillaeote npt-n financial a(T irs. 'i he Rothschild* have, through th< Ir egent in Mexico, who was o?e of the prime mover* in iudueiig tiie Mexican governmeat to to termsj been early u;p Ised of the probable result of tha p?ndI lug negotiations, and they have, without, doubt. prtlHed j largtly by it, by purchasing our own State aud governj meet securities. Unil.rl States G's snd Treasury Notes have, wiit In the p^ft three weeks, advacced three and j flie per cent, and good State stocks hive Improved nearly *1 much. This has bean the result of the cur le V, turners of peace, and the agents of the Rothschilds were, no doubt, < fllcially In formed of the facts, and In possession of all tha necensary information, whan the mtlotj t?r\iou nrvtx ao long a?ru floating about, ware flrit a.arUd Tha truly waa not signed njitll tha 94 inst ; but it must 1i*t<< b.??n datortnlnod upon pom* tim? pr> viouM to timt Tlio sptenlatorcof %Ji country ba?f I hud tin* lotnlli((*ne?, aseor.d hand, and luta had to play second flddlM to tha grai?t r.apital'sta of Europe, wliota ! t urctg of Information aro unlimltn I, at.d wbna* flnanI rial pont-r l? anornous, from Its connection ^Itb all tha principal gjTtrnnti ta cf th? world, axcapt this Wo are yat oat ot lhajr pow<r, but biw lonj? wa ahall remain ao, depend* upon our future ex -e-.dUuref The Mexican treaty may not b? dlspored of for rcmc tlfflo. oa It* various *?ctlons will, no dcubt. giv.i ri?* to <*onsider?bl* debate In *Mcutire serrlnn.

But Mr. folk declare the n^xt el-ctton cannni in- etrnea peace n> rnnue; una ho lie n-.* consented to retraer lii?< footsteps, whfii, to h consistent, ho should have gone forward, and to piy tribute when lie uhould have exacted kuI?* mission. Yet such is the a;, ^il < ! committing a fali>e step politically, that very t*w Hc*n*inrs will vote ii;;*iri*t the treaty. Th* unmber rf (hose opposed to it never exceeded hx. There n>>ver have been twenty Senators ro muoti opposed us to vote against i'; hut I have us yet convened with 110 Senator wh* thinks it a good treaty. Members of both parties any, 44 it woula h * madnesg to vt>te a uinst it?to do to would kill our party;" and thus, through concern lor th* party, I'le treaty will bo ratified. Mr. Ciav has s.ronglv idvised t?< ratification, und Mr. Polk is usiny nil his effort * 10 en.-<ur<* it. Great Britain will in ike no uninediate demon* ?tr<ition on Lower California, or on any other portion of Mexico?that would he to deleft this treaty. How Ion# alie will forbear the prosecution of her claime, is another question. And here again in a rr.iv* mistake of the President, [d making out the cn=e of this country against Mexico, he has alleged, one of the chief causes of the w#r, the non-payment ol the debts dae our citizens. This must have equal force when tiffed rb a cimm* belli by Great Britain against Mexico, and the principle of territorial indemnity can be insisted upon with equal force. Why, then, may not Great Britain claim the right of indemnifying herself, after the manner of the United Stftes, by the seizure of Mexican territory 1 Mr. Polk Ins furnished her with ample arguments. He declares, forsooth, that he will allow no foreign interference on this co ntinent; but who will now attach value to his declarations 7 In the man who has run away from all his positions on the Oregon question and on the Mexican question, who can have confidence 1 Who next will expose himself to derision by supporting. in good faith, the ambiguous declarations of the President 1 Alas! what a chilling disaff pointment awaits his credulity. "heu qnotle* fidem, Mutatoequ* deoa U bit, at super* Nlgrl* tequora rentis Kmirabltur inaolens!" Who now will swear by hie broken faith, or trust himself to the shadowy platlorin of his delusive policy"! In it Mr. Casa, whom he betraysl ?>r Mr. Sevier, whom he deceived ua to the exittence of this treHty! or Mr. Allen, or Mr. Hannegan, whose indignation at the Oregon juggle Iuih scarcely evaporated ! or Mr. Houston, of whom he is jealous! or Mr. Benton, wbom he hasjilted! whom can he again deceive! If lie turu to Ilia divided cabinet, he will find "linked against liim, a manly intellectual opposition, and 011 his *id<*, a mindless and subservient majority Will hr turn to the democratic party, which he has distracted?to IS?* young democrncy, some of whose sentinels he lias seduced from duty?or to thrs old, whose leaders he has betrayed! Whoift then can he now delude with protestations that no foreign interference w'll be permitted on this continent! There is, however on?* comfortable reflection, which may be indulged: that w!i?n the time will come for asserting this cherished principle, Mr. Polk's alipperiuess will no longer be available for initichi?-f, and there may be some man it (he head ol the government wlio will exhibit firmness without bluster, and calmness without timidity.
