But, we repeat, we will never balieve that the assent of tbe Crewn to its own degradation wii be given, until, at least, it can ha constitutionally demanded, as tbe result of a general eleotion. What that result will be, We have not tbe ebadowof a doubt; but. whatever It may be, surely the loyal defenders or ber Majesty's throne make no nrreasonabie demand noon her prerogative, in asking that tbey should not be condemned naheerd- that they should have an opportunity of constitutionally revising their deoieian at tba last eieetion, when tbe slightest whisper of tbe Injustice intended them *ae car, fully avoided.

Return from Washington?Office Seekers at IVurk ?Change of Programme?Theatricals, tfc. Our city to-day is crowded with strangera, and every hour adds a thousand to the number. The return cars from Washington commenced to arrive at 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon, and have been pcunng in ever since, nil being apparently aa anxious to escape from Washington as they were to rench there. There is considerable atir here among the office seekers, and all the offices in the city are already appropriated by a derm or more expectants. The moet prominent names mentioned tor the Collector ol Cui-toms, are Jonathan Mereoith, Esq , brother ot the Secretary at the Treasury; Colonel Kii e, Captain Pickell, and Elias Griffith; for Surveyor ot the Port, Mr. Kenley ; lor Postmaster, Col. Isaac Monroe, Mr. Maddux, and Z. Collins i>ee; t^r the offices ol District Attorney and U. 8. Marshal, the names are lemon, comprising a great variety of both young and old lawyers. For the minor offiees the applicants do not yet show tbemeelvrs, as they are unpointed by the higher grades, and t uch applicant for these stations has a host of friends in ex|>ectancy However, the scramble for office among the whigs is not half so great as ?, the rerent eeramb'e of the "outs" of the democracy for the places ol their dsmocratic Mayor, Stansbury. The appointment of Mr. Meredith to the Treasury Department, it is calculated, will upset the jTOgrsmme ot appointments for the custom house, laidout by the whig Central Committee. II his krothei should desire the post ol Collector hs will doubtless get it. Mr Peale, formerly of the Museum, in this city, " has become proprietor of the Howard Aihenimm, mid intends to exert himselt to repair his losses in Philadelphia. Both him and Yankee Silsbee have made money at the Baltimore Museum, only to squander it Hlter a gilded bait in Philadelphia. Thk Late Miir. Walker.?The Norwich (Ct.) Aurora, ot the /th instant, speaking ot the melancholy tate of the late Mrs. Walker, says: The history of her divorce from Mr. Miller, by the Legislature of this State, m 18-13, is probably fresh in the recollection ot all. Such was thes.mpathy then excited in her behalf, that after a long trial before the committee, the Senate granted her a bill of divoice by a unanimous vote, the bill havirg belt-re pushed the House with only three or four dissenting volet. Our prthf.nlGovernor, Bise? II, tin n a member of the Senate, made a strong si cech in her favor; and Mr. Billings, of New London, then Speaker of the House, whs among those wno advocated her cause in the House Tiuly has her life been an eventful one. A short . lime, we trust, will clear up the my stery that seems to hang sbosl her horrible death. Cowrt Calendar?Thlu nay. 0i??t?T Cava*.?No? 83,68 66.64.67, 09 to 7T, 79 to 14 18. Cohmow Plk?i ?

Of rouiee the ladies had the first claim upon file attr tition, and it they had not ivcssessed it by all t-ociaJ and chivalrw; comity, they would have demanded and tnlorced it; therefore our friends waited unnl the female greetings were eoded, when they were ushered iuto the reception room, where the President was alone, waiting to receive them.

Having spent forty years in the camp, and for the moBt part, outside of what might he termed the boundary ot civilization, the courtesy snd eloquence ot the forum could not be expected from him, but the will must tie taken tor the deed. He had always toid his whig friends that he would not be the exclusive candidate ot uny patty, hut would consider hiuis> if, it elected, as the Pres.dei.t ot the people. To the people he w hs indebted lor the highest station in the world Whigs, native Americans and democrats, had given him their support, and uhhough he might d tier eiignity witn eonio oi tntm 111 points ot political opinion, he would as toon turn his back upon his country's enemies in battle, aa upon his friends, who had stood together in the late civi1 contest. Ail were equally entitled to, and should rtceive, their proper sha;c of hia regard, la the distribution ot offices, he would endeavor to give to each of the divisions of his supporters their share of the burden ot public duty, according to their proportion and numbers, so far as he could ascertain them. He said that a large share of the honor oi the late important actions was due to the brave soldiers, both regulars anil volunteers, who fought and conquered Tor their country. The very honors which were now showered uinui him, weie but an expression by the people of their sense ot the magnitude and importance of those achievements It was his good toitune to be p act d in a position to lead tioae brave soldiers, and to that circumstance he was indebted tor much r.f his military reputation. 1 have not attempted to give the language of the Piesidtnt. but in the above digest of bis remarks 1 think I nave retained the Bpirit of his declarations. After this address of the President, the various members ot the oelegatiou were introduced to him, and afttr a cordial interchange of congratulations, they piocetded to the itsidcnce ot Mr. MrieOith.

Mr. Polk was accsmpamed by his lady, two nieces, and other ladies, and by K. J Walker, Esq., lute Secretary of the Treasury, Major Graham, late Register ot the Treasury, Mr. Thomas, M U from Mr. Polk's distiict in Iciinessee, and others. At Firdencksburg, and other points on the railroad, the people turned out to waicome him At the junction, he was met by Messrs. R.G. Scott, J. A. Seddoa and J. 8. Cut k it , of the commit tea ot invitation, who escorted him to Richmond, where, in the midst of u great crowd, he was taken tn charge by a committee of the Legislature, and conducted to the hall of the Hause ol Delegates, wherein had assembled the Senate, the House, the Governor and Council, and a Urge number ot citizens. >Ve rruuh(d the rotundo ao late, that we wera unable to force our way through the crowd. We lesrn from othns, however, that the scene was lull of interest. Mr. Speaker Hopkins addressed the exFiesident in eloquent language. Mr. Polk, in reply, spoke warmly and eloquently of the very nigh compliment in being thus received by the Legislature of a State ?or w hich he held the most profound veneration, and lit nt whose apostles he had drawn und gathered up hie appreciation ot the principles of constitutional liberty. He said he was taken by surprise in the flattering reception extended to him by the representatives of Virginia, and he should regard it as the very highest honor of his life. To be so received, having lust laid dowu power, and no longer clothed with the patronage of the government, filled him with gratitude. He bad been most laboriously cngxgt d during his administration, and had endeavored, to the be6t ol his ability, to discharge the arduous duties that had devolved MM him aa President of the United States. Measures of greater magnitude had been crowded into the four years of bis administration than had fsllen to any that had preceded ; and the beneht ot tha country alone had guided him in the conduct of bflaire. Hia principles he had learnud in the school of the illustrious statesmen ot Virginia. He was no longer a servant ot the people, but had become now a sovereign. He spoke of the greatx>('as of the country, and, in connection with the extension of our territory, of the value of the Union. The Union would be preserved by maintaining the compromises of the constitution. Freer i ve the Union, and the march ot our country in prosperity and greatness would be immeasurable, end surpass the glory of ancient Rome, the miatresa of the world. He referred to the vast commerce that would flow from our newly-acquired possessions, making six hundred millions ot people comRierciafly tributaiy to ua. He contiuned to respond at soma length, in fine taste and with much forse. We trust that acme one who wan present, who fortunate ensign to preserve wnat tni do well and so handsomely said. Mr. F. E.
