At this rate of decrease, the aggregate income for 1848. will be much less than that of 1847. It is anticipated that tlio opening of tho Nashua and Worcester road, and the Fltchburg and Worcester road, will give the Norwich and Worcester a great increase of business, and of courso enlarged receipts. It is estimated that from the Nashua road alone, business to the amount of nevcuty-ftve thousand dollars will be realized the first year. It is in contemplation to open that road in Sep- j tembcr. There is no doubt but that the Norwich road will draw s?me business from the Nashua line; but it Is our opinion that the amount estimated is overrated ' The recent decline in the market price for Norwich and Worcester stock has destroyed all confidence in H it, and as a fancy, it cannot range much above ruling H rates. The history of this stock is sufficient to give H speculators very little confidence in any fancy securi ty. Within the past four or five years, this stock has been as low as 25 per cent, aud as high as 95 per cent, and the fluctuations between these points have fre <iucntly been 10 and 15 per cent in as many days.? There have been as many explosions among the bulls and bears in this stock, as in any other in the street. and the probability is, that it will hereafter be one of the dullest and heaviest fancies afloat. We sec no prospect of reviving or improving it. If its receipts contlnuo to fall off, its stock must sink, even below current rates, as its immense debt must ultimately absorb the whole concern. I The finances of the State of Rhode Island do not present a very flattering condition. The annexed H statement exhibits the aggregate roceipts and expen ditures each year:?

But thero is reason to believe, | he conceivos. judging from the five years past, that the deficiency in that year will be from $10,000 to $12 000. i The amount of the State debt is reported to be as fol- ; lows. vU : Due the public deposit fund $152,719 21 i Note at the Bank of North America 25.000 00 Balance due from tho State per balanco of his account current to May 1st, 1848.. . . 0.030 00 $187,354 21 The system of taxation must be very deficient in Rhode Island, te make such a financial exhibit as this.

'I'll.' hunkers believing now ill it it is iiit|M>f~vit>l' to oust the I tic.i delegates from tin- convention, desire to be admitted r.r (Pi/ii<>. They would thin neutralize the votes of their appoiunts. Tin y have very little prospect of being admitted on any terms. [t is now clear that Mr. Polk despairs of a noruination; and he is therefore giving solemn ass?-anees that lie never meant to be a candidate. Of course nobody believes thofi" protestations, but everybody feels <|iiite certain that there is no possibility of his re-nomination. That his frienda have arrived at this condition, may be inferred from the fact, that Mr. Hanuegaii threw up thYucatan bill in the Senate, yest-rd ty. It wastha last trump card held by Mr. Polk, and t!i ahsoluo renunciation of him by the united democracy of the country;, has rendered it wholly unavailable. As to the information pretended to have been received. that was too shallow a pretext to deceive unybouy._ Air. Polk has abandoned all hope of the nomination, and now we may expect n are at deal of pompous boasting of his fidelity tu which h<> failed to break because he found it impossible; mid ot his magnanimity iu refusing a nomination which he knew would not be offered to him in any case. Mr. Allen made, to-day, an indignant speech against what he alleges to be an attack by Mr. Johnson, of Maryland, on the prerogative of the President, in calling for information why certain nominations have not been sent iu to the Senate. The facts are these. The President was authorized, at the last session of Congress, to create two additional Major Generals. The rank was conferred i:i the recess of Congress on < lens. I'illow and Quitman. It has been invariably the custom to send in as early as possible after Congress has assembled, nominations made in the recess ; and in this cane there was a peculiar necessity for observing this practice, as General Quitman s services had entitled him to the highest honors that could be conferred by the Senate; and it was essential to confirm him as soon as practicable in the rank to which he had been unofficially raised, as the war was expected to terminate, anu in that event the confirmation of the Senate would have been but aii enintv honor. Senators felt exceedingly anxious to confirm General Quitman's nomination, but it has not been sent in, although these ssion has now lusted nearly six months. The cause of the i!>-|ity is easily explained. Mr. Polk would be ( ileil at the same time to send in the name of General Pillow, who, he knows, would not be confirmed. He desires to hold it back until the war shall terminate, in order that General Pillow, by resigning, may be saved the disgrace of a rejection by the Senate. Thus, to save from a merited rebuke General Pillow, his colleague in the practice of the law in the small courts of Tennessee, he does a gross injustice to General Quitman, an able and gallant officer. Now, it is true, the President is not obliged to send in those nominations until the close of the session, if he choose to delay them so long, and therefore, Mr. Johnson's resolution should not be entertained; but its introduction is, nevertheless, _ by no means to be regretted, as the debate lias exposed this most unusual, and, under the circumstances, most vile transaction. IIow Mr. Allen, of mi nu n mi me senate, can attempt to justitv huh base and grovelling scheme, is incomprehensible. The doctrines that gentleman advanced 111 the Senate to-day, are even more strange tlmn his justification ill Mr. Polk's meanness, lie attempted to prove that it is morally impossible the President of the I nited States can he a bad man. Mr. Allen is able and honest; hut twice the degree of his ability and honesty cannot sanction so monstrous an absurdity. lie need not go farther than the present administration to arrive at what can be proved from his own words, on a former occasion, to be a direct falsification of his present position. That Mr. Allen should be heard extolling the man wln? made the Oregon treaty, i:< exceedingly strange; almost as strange as that Mr. llannegan, who devoted this same man to an abyss of infamy where the hand of resurrection could not reach him, should now lie his blind and subservient agent. Mr. Allen talks largely of the freedom of the press. How long will the people be gulled by those who talk forever about the freedom of the press, and who, when the occasion presents itself to defend the press, basely truckle to power and desert their dutyT I will Jo Mr. Allen the justice to say, that whatever votes he gave in the late proceedings of the Senate against myself, he sustained the rights of the press against the power of the S"ini". Hut Mr. Allen contented himself with voting. Xo denunciation did lie hurl against the aggression of the Senate on tjie rights of the press and the liberty of tlr.' citizen. There was no crowded gallery to listen, and he therefore spoke not; no reporter, to herald his speech to distant parts of the country, and therefore he spoke not; ii" one o/posed to the Senate who could give him ( \Ir. Allen) the vote of this State or of that for thn Presidency or Vice Presidency, and therefore h" spoke not ; no President of the I 'nited States to be conciliated, and thi'ivfore he spoke not; in tine, no political capital to be in ide, and therefore he ppoltc ll"t. When a resolution was before the Senate last session, in expel the editor <if the Union from the Senate. .Mr. Allen denounced the attack on the lib crtv of the nress holdlv. vehemently, and with great effect. Mr. I'olk, as 'i mutter ot course, \va? nit rested for the editor. When the corrcsnondent <>f a New York paper w;ii vilely oppressed by the Scnati?deprived of his liberty, and treated with sh miefitlly viudietive violence?Mr. Allen was si I -iii. Mr. I'olk had instigated those proceedings against the correspondent. There lay the differ< ?!< < . Mr. Allen made a stveeli to-day, in which lie glorifies the press. Mr. I'olk is not at present particularly opposed to the press in general, and (ho convention meets on Monday next. Mr. Allen feels therefore at liberty, and it is his interest to glorify tli" presM. And yet .Mr. Allen is par excellence trie great asserter of popular rights in the Senate, and professedly the greatest enemy to humbug in llint body. It is but just to Mr. A lien to say, that lie appeared hi "ii extremely false jmsition?!o??i amid the sophis; tries which lie wov.?entirely at fault in sustain j mg the false and disingenuous theories he enunciated. His style is suited only to the emphatic utI ferance of honest sentiments. He should never assume or attempt to defend positions which h? knows to be untenable. Gai.viensir. Washington, May 18, 1HH.
