The " man of the situation." to uu a French eipres rion, ii Lord Palmer h ton. 1 have on one or two occa ftons stated my conviction that Palmerston wax tU? stoat popular man in England, and that he would sooner ?r later, be Prime Minister. The immense majority on Mr. Roebuck '? motion for a committee of inquiry into the management, or rather mismanagement, of the war, bad, as a necessary conse quence, the resignation of all the ministers ? tie toute la boutique. Lord Aberdeen formally announced it to the House of Lords last night, and 1'al me .s ton announced it ia the Commons. The majority against ministers on Mr. Roebuck's motion was 167. Now, when it U con sidered that this motion and its consequent vote was not the offspring of opposition machinations, but the legitimate child of indignant public ooinion, aroused by tke sufferings of our army In the Crimea, the impor tance which must be attached to it Is very great. The vote was received in silence. It is regarded by many as tke first blow struck by the hind of the people against ?wr system of government. Public opinion represented in the press by tbe 'Una, found a mouthpiece in Roe bock, and the government fel], l,\ea house built of cards, ktthe first breath Tbe (|uettiou now is : who is to be Prime Minister? As 1 ksv idy said, there is but one man who enjoys the confidence of the people, and that man is Palmers tan; but there is such a split among parties that be will find it difficult to form a ministry. Moreover he is not a favorite at Windsor. Tbe nation also will not be satisfied ? nless he is Minister of War. On Aberdeen's resignation the Queen sent for Lord Derby, but he has not been able to form a ministry, though he bad a long interview with Palmerston af'er leaving the Palace. I believe he ofTered him the War ?Bee, but I'dlMThton declined to servs under him. Earl Grey would make a good War Minister, with Pal werston aa Premier, Gladstone in the Echequer ? and a lew young men of action, as Layard, RtafTord and 0? horne, who have been and seen things with their own ?yea as undersecretaries. It is to be hoped a ministry will be formed to day. It Si scandalous to leave the country without a m uistry at the present moment. The cowardly retreat of Lord John Russell, who, like ft rascally commanJer, was the first man to leave his ?hip when be thought she was sinning, is st'll the theme ?f universal reproach. Lord John is running the gaunt let of public opinion, and the nine-tails fall heavily on fcis back. The Queen has expressed hsi entire disappro bation of his conduct, and his former colleagues have, in ?oequivocal terms, expressed their indignation at his tight. Personal ambition is tie reason g'ven for his con tact. In tlio House of Lords, las', nigh'., the Duke of Newcas tle gave him tbe lie. It is a strong expression, but a pe rusal of tbe Duke's speech will oonvtuce you '.hit it is a ?errect one. The Duke made a frank, open sia > ueut. Me had repeatedly ofl'ereJ to resign the war office, and hft completely refuted l.orrl John's statements of his ma sons tor resigning. Tae Karl of Derby took a-lv image ?f tbe Duke of New.-astle's titatewen'. of the ?tsxen ions ?f tbe late Cabinet, to m^ke a slashing spx?<'h whih, kowever clever as a pieoe of oratory, is re*.t;Je I out of plaee jnst now. If noble legislators do not tat<c car*, and am ise themselves in p.irty discussions and person ftUiies whilflt the public are cape: tin / rom^tbiog to be 4*ae {or out brave troops aol brothers in the Crimea, public opinion miy hit '.h"m o Micoqd b'p*. harder t'lai vote of th? otbw night. It is Wt)rtb your wh;l$ t6 rea 1 carefully the spe<?cbe< ?? the debate en Roebuck's m it'oi oa Monday n ght, 2Mb January, Th? fearful 'tat^aitnt 0j gtalTord, the slashing speech ?f Bulwer ^ confessions of Berusl Oaborue, all to the same end. A thorough reform is about to take plaoe in tbe whole system of organization in Kog taftd. We are on tht eve ol great reforms ? of a gteat ?octal revolution. Merit is hen eforth to take the place ?f family and fortune and nepotism is to be done away with, in so far as it can be done away with, for It Is an ?vll which belongs and forms apart of humaa nature, ?berent in all, in the republican as wi ll as in the lory, the w big; or the radcal. Tbere Is much to be le.irnt from these dt bates In Par liament, where tbe noblest and richest in the land, some ?f them the hereditary rulers of England, acknowledge that tbe hour for a great social reform ha? struck. Tbe next step will be the aboliticn of hereditary right to a seat in tbe Legislature. A Duke's son, tria if a'l idiot, has a right to a seat in Parliament. Let him re tain bis rank and his estates? they are -Irs ? bat let not ?a incompetent man legist ite f??r a great and a free peo ple. Tbe acscunts from the seat of war are more sttlsfac Wry. Tbe frost had hardened the ground, and pro visions and an munition had b?en got up to the camp in considerable quantities. The Russians tmde eorttes continually, always with the sime remit? a few killed on both sides, and then a precipitate retreat. The >'reach are quite ready for the as-a ill They throw jftily ail hundred 13-ineh shells into the city. As soon a' all the English new batteries and heavy msrtar* are ready the game will be opened. Adm ral Lyon 1 is con tinually going to I/>rd Hau'lan, and I believe there is something In tl>e wind. We have no news of any action yet n*ar Eupitoria, wbtreOmer Pasha's troops landed.

I told yon in my last with what anxiety Frenchmen were looking acros tbe channel ; with what ? may I not call it enviou pleasure.- ? they were on the qui vice for each alternation of tbe approaching Parliamentary discussion ; and how, like the old hunter whose tiprung sinews and stiffened joints consigned bim to the mute inglorions ease of the straw yard, while horse and hound and bounding steeA woke the morning echoes within aggravating ear-shot ? they pricked their earn, and sent forth aundry ebulli tions i igniucant of the secret longings of their hearts. But now that a species of revolution is in progress ? the only one which England happily indulge* in ? namely, a cabinet crisis, al' Paris is rubbing its hands with as much excitement us if the physical temperature did not afford it sufficient occupation in this respect without aucb poli tical addenda . Tb? ong and repeated conference* whioh Lord John Russell was known to hate had with the Emperor during ^7?Cent Ti8U ,0 i^uoe the belief that the result of these was not without its effects on the ualoek ? or.te, . which t. at most important member ofThe British cabin, ^ajust taken, and even that he might hate prepared -Napoleon, in eonie measure, for a decision which seems to lmve Uken all the political world by surprise. Lord John Rumll'g cordial testimony to the sincerity of the French alliance, from, a* he himself termed it, hi* pfrsens! exoerience in the French capital has, however, reli.-vcd the publis mind from any notion Of a change of policy, and but one idea now prevails that, happen what will in the English miaistry-and "''"""lotion i. expected-the war Wl" Btl11 continue a great fact.

The rrobability i* that the erowned head* about that time will have more stormy events to occupy their attention. Supposing Austria and Prussia to take opposite aides in their appeal to the Germanic Confederation, the fol lowing calculations hare been made of the votes of the Diet For Austr'a there will be, first, her own votes, 4; Biden, 4: Brunswick, 2; the States of Thuringen, 8;Hesse Darm stadt, and Sunderhausen, 2 ? in all, 19 votea. For I'russia, her own Totes, 4 ; Sax on j, 4: Wirtumberg, 4; Holstein and I.arrenburg, 3; the two Meckleaburgs, 4; Nassau, 2; 8axe-Melneng|in and Altenburg, 2; and the amall (states of Anhalt, Walde:k,|Rea?a, Ac., 8 ? in all, 29 -votes. In this way the majority would be In favor of I'russia', but theie are still Hanover and Bavaria, each with four votes, who are said to he inclined to support the Austrian policy, though with reserve* that Austria cannot admit. There would then remain to be classified Electoral Hesse, Saxe-Welmar, Oldenburg. Luxemburg, Limburg, and the free towns, -which might leave the balance pretty equal in the end. The miscellaneous news may be thus comprised The Nkw York Herald is confiscated three times out of four. Mr. Philips, an American citizen, from hts unfortunate re semblance to M. Mazzini, the Italian patriot, or whatever it may please parties to call him, was arrested at Basle. Count Buol ana M. Droyn de l'Huys exchange orders? or ratber, the first receives the Grand Cross of the Legion of Honor, anil the last the Order of St. Stephen in Aus tria. Count de Montmerail, whose leisure hours were employed on the Bourse, and whose fertile imagination ed him to circulate certain false news and injurious re ports about I.oule Napoleon, has been consigned to prison or six months, and sentenced to pay a penalty in aadi t<>n, of five hundred francs. At Havre de Grace there is o be a new dock, and every ship since the first of the year, en lering into the harbor, is made to pay the sum of ixpence towards the expense. The macadamlzation In the streets of Paris, spite of the dust in summer and the mud in winter, answers admirably in one respect? houses in them let at an increase of ten per cent, in consequence of their freedom of noise, and carriages go through the year without springing bolt or screw; in fact, save fifty per cent in value. While it la rain to pasquinade the Emperor of the French, anything in the shape of sa tire on the Emperor of all th&Bussias ? If very, very broid ? is an excellent speculation. The Marquis de Biaarls, formerly Sardinian'Mlnister, is now President of the Histo rical Institute of France, Prince de la Motkowa, Honorary President; and Count Reenhard and M. Jules llarbter, Deputy Vice Presidents; and M. AohiUe, Internal Seore tary. The French clergy? in fifty parishes? have ex horted their psrishioneri to bring all the old linen and lint they can spare for the use or the army in th*> East. General Archet is Chief of the Police at Constantinople; and now that the gendarmerie patrol the streets a little better order is ktpt, though the unfortunate Turks hive ?till reaion to exclaim, as the peculiar kick of the French assails their unwielly bodies, "Call ye this back in* your friends?"

Famagelli is to execute his grand fantasia, "Robert le IMable," all with the left hand. Pagi'uiui, with one string, must necessarily be quite eclipsi d. The accounts from Spain promise ill for the repose of that country. M. Soul. , on his return to the United states, should publish a volume ; the occupation would be good fur his energetic character, and few men must br better acquainted with a state of things of which he n.ay say, "Quorum dam magna fuu" BEKT1B.

On the l?-.h of Iinmber Letd Jeba Ru?t?U informed the Prim* Mint* ter that he had rfttnvod hia views and abandoned hit former plan. A\ the Cabinet held on Saturday, the 20th of January, three days before Parliament rt aajeinbled, Lord John Russell himself brought forward another plan for the reorganisation of the military department!, more Marly resembling the aebeme of Lord Grey. This plan was agreed to by the Dnke of Newcastle, and a lopted by the other members of the government, with the ex ception of one or two Insignificant details, on which Lord John had made a blonder. Yet to the astonish ment of bis colleagues, Lord John has since HmW that be bad no reason to suppose that the reforms which had been under consideration would prevail, and that he was unable to asanre the House of Commons that arrangements were being made to remedy the state or the army? lhe fact being that Lord John's own plan had at that very time been agreed to, and that the Duke of Newcastle had already announced to Lord Aberde?n hia absolute determination to resign office altogether, on account of the unpopula rity attached to his administration of the War Depart ment. Under these circumstance*, the sudden announce ment of Lord John's flight from the treasury bench ex cited tbe unfeigned amawment of all who knew the fscts of the ease, and we must add that theae fa:ts are wholly irreconcilable with the mottvsa he thought pro per to assign for hia recignation. The trnth is, that of all tbe proposals connected with the war, which Lord John Kussell has made to his colleagues, none have been rejected, and of the objections he has started none have hem overruled. The causes which led him to destroy the government at this difficult and periloua criais in the affairs of Europe muat therefore be sought altogether In bis own personal ambition. Calling the assembled Peers of Fngland to witness, and In the preaence of all the late ministers of the Crown, who have personal knowledge of all these occurrences, the Duke of Newcastle proved to demonstration that most of the. allegations made in the House qf Commons by Lord John Russell on this subject are at variance with the truth, and that tbe obloquy arising from this transaction does not remain where he attempted to cast it It has been our painful dnty, in commenting on tho accounts received from the army, to animadvert as forcibly as we could on the numerous instances of mis management which have exposed our troops to dreadful hardships and losses, lowered our military reputation abroad, and compromised the success of tbe Crimean expedition. But we have neter aaid one word which could be construed into a personal imputation on the Duke of Newcastle more than on the other members of the government and the chiefs of tbe army. Ou the con trary, we knew with what indefatigable energy he has worked, while other members of the government were not even within reach of London; and we could not but draw, and have ever drawn, a favorable contrast be twee n his laborious real in toe public service and their supercilious indifference. Great mistakes have been committed in the choice of the men selected to carry on this war, bo h at home and ?broad ; and the government has been jaatly blamed for not reorganizing the administration of the armv, em bodying the militia, forming a reserve, and proceeding to place our military establishments at once upon a full war footing. But on all these points Lord John Russell must lie content to share the ceaaure which his col leagues have Incurred, and it la because these evils and emissions were not more promptly remedied that the tatk became impracticable. Tbe Duke of Newcastle has failed, hut it was the aystem as much as the min'ater which broke down; und no minister will aucceed in guiding this country to the glorious termination of a successful war until tbe military establishments have been thoroughly reformed. We think, therefore, that the Duke of Newcastle overstates the accusations which are or can be preferred against himself; and we are con fident that no man will read his manly and becoming de fence without sympathy and respect. Brighter Proapcctt of tti?

The sufferings of the troops before Sebastopol have i o completely and so justifiably engrossed our at tention that we have almoct ceased to inquire into the progress of the siege, and appear to have assumed that the effectual prosecution of offensive operations was virtually beyond our power, trom the letttr, how ever of our correspondent, which we yesterday pub lished, it will be st en that to the virtues of heroic eour sue and indomitable endu'ance the British so dier add* tho.e of unllitching confidence and neverfailing hope. On the very scene of *11 that misery wh?ch has reeeottv be. n so vivid v deputed, there actually prevailed a unl verbal belief that our arms would b? triumphant, and that f-obastopol, eo long ana so fruitlessly beleagurei, must mfalUl.W fall before the valor end solution of the al lies. "There is no doubt," says our correspondent "no despondency out here. No one for an instant feels diffident of ulimate success." If anything >vere required to ccmplete the admiration with wh ch our soldiers are regarded, it would be found in this astonishing express slon of military confidence and patriotic faith. While we, with too much reason, were trembling for the very salvation of our army, that army itself was still talking ef victory and anticipating triumph! No suff^r.njt could rob it of that belief wtveh British soldiers enter tain in the power of their arm?; and certainly, if any cause could contribute more forcibly than another to irsuie luch a success, It would b? thst dauntless reso lution wbl-J?

We may venture, however, to coosl Jer this subject a little further, and to resume for a moment that siirv j of operations which other topics have inter '"fboticge of Sevastopol has n ver besa ab?ol itely sufp'cdfd. Our own works, it is true, proceeded b it very slowly, and our batteries were tew often silent for want of ammunition; but we lott no gioun 1, and while we were waiting lor 1-etter means of action, and suffer ing unfortunately, rrore excessive privations, oar brave allies were pushing their approaches agsinst, the town with indefatigable activity and no mconslderib.e effect.

Very few or thru bad swords, and their dree* consisted of a large "rnana", (ponobo,) not one in ten of them haying even a Cr of drawer* beside*. You will thus perce ire that they 1 nf itber pipeolay nor "dangleums" of any sort to im pede their movement*, nor any u*eles* weight to bear cown their hortes with. As few of them had stirrups, you mar suppose that they rode au naturel, and not in the pig tail fashion, or, a* we call it in Venezuela, enjua ga-botetla (bottle washing) fashion, which I unlerstand wu Intro duced into the British cavalry by the Duke of Cumber land, a century ago. In order to frighten the Scottish partisans of the Pretender. This was a great advantage to the poor horses in the campaign, as their backs ani rib* wtre never sore; as also to the riders, as tboy never lost leather. Our tavtiss in the presence of the' enemy were a* follow : ? In dealing with Infantry, we would en deavor to get to windward and kick up a great dust, or cet Are to the long grass of the plains, so that lots of dust or smoke should blow in their laces, and we woull then charge and wheel about ad libitum. If regular cavalry, heavy or light, opposed us, we would send out small troop* of forty or fifty men to lasso them by throwing the noose either right over tbe men's heads and arms, and bodily dragging them off their horses; or by catch ing tbe latter by tbe legs, thus throwing both horse and rider. Our men in the real would then dash forward and lance the poor regulars a* they lay sprawling oa tbe ground. Another plan was. to take a few uubroken mares and turn them loose, with dry raw bides attached to their tails, into tbe midst of the Spaniards. Tbe noise thus created caused horrible confusion among the Span sh pipeclays (and they were line troop*,) and we had not hing to do but to spear them. With sixty men I once destroyed a whole regiment of them thus. Depend upon it, that light'horses and light men, with strtng right arm*, form the most efficient cavalry, Tbe Llaneroa, from the habit of throwing the lawo among the wild cattle of tbe plains, were hardy, strong, ana inimitable horsemen. As a weapon, I should probably prefer a good useful cut and thrust sword to a lance; and would only add thereto that modern invention, the re volver. carrying the cartridges in a belt round the waist, after the fashkm of the Spanish contrabandist's " ca naoa," from which 1 would also suspend tbe sword. By these means, all strnps, buckles, and encumbrance* would be avoidei, and the horse would have lets weight to carry, and tbe whole be more effective. Having thus far entered into details, I may now ven ture to say that I have been honored by my countrymen with the Presidency of Venezuela I am now residing in New York, and would be mist happy to cross over to England to aid In any manner in tbe equipment of some effective cavalry for the forthcoming campaign in the Crimea.

Mr. Gidding* arrived at San Antonio, Texas, on the 23d nit., from Santa Fe. He is the mail carrier under the last letting*; bui it appears the Postmaster at Santa Fe refused to give Mm the mail, because he bad not re ceived official notice to do so.

The Legislature la in session, and has been for about thirty days, placing their aession just half through, ac cording to the time for which the members can sit and get pay.

The Legislature is composed entirely of Mexican*, with the exception of, I believe, live Am"ricana. The officers are all Mexican*. The language uied is the Spanish. The Supreme Court of the Territory was in session, Judges Davenport, Broochus and Benedict being present. Gen. I'elham, Surveyor General of the Territory, had ar rivfd at Santa Fe. The country between San Jose and Santa Fe is infest ed with robber*, supposed to be Mexican* and Am?rl. can*, who arc digguised as Indian*. The number is not knovn, hut variously estimated at between twenty and flfly. Major try, tbe paymaster, narrowly **onped them, while returning from Fort I'nion, to which he had been for the purpose of pay ng oil the soldier*, lie discovered the robber* about nightfall observing hi* movements, and eluded I hem hy pretending to stop for the night, where he remained until the night was dark tniugh to hide his escape into Santa Fe. A number of murders and robherlea have been per petrated recently, following each other in quick *u> cession. Lick I'eio, a noted and successful gambler, wan murdered at Ro;k Spring, "even miles from tbe old l'ecns Church. It was supposed that he had with him about seven thousand dollars, all of which was taken hy therohbera. A Mexican was found dead on the public plaza, a few day* be'ore thu mail party lelt.
