Message will , sot be sent in tinti! to-morrow. We know of ao special reason for thia delav, as both Houses an full organised sod ready for bnsiness. Then are rumor of a movement in the House tQ tvperseJe Speaker Basks, but they are absurd. Tjie political importance of the position ke bold hu greatly diminbhed since the . election, and it is not at all likely that either party regards the responsibility for the organisation Of the House as especially desirable. VV do not anticipate any considerable poli ti-. cal excitement during the present session. ' The friends of Mr. Buchaxas would undoubtedly be glad ' to tare the Kansas question set- ' tied before be comes into power, but it is not sj to see how that result can be attained. The new Kansas Legislature does not meet until J an nary, and a Convention coull scarcely be anthorixed, elected, held, and a State Conttitiitkxi framed and .presented for the action of Congress before the 4 th of March. With the present Bouse, moreover, it would not be easy to secure the admission of Kansas with a fro-Slavery Constitution. We doubt whether such a constitution, especially if formed in haste, and wider the 'sanct ion of the pres- nt Legislature, could be forced through that .lody. '' hlr. UrCHAJux, we are inclined to think, rill therefore be compelled to face the responsibility; of acting upon the Kansas question. , . If, indeed, he could prevail upon President Pnca to remore Judge LECoMrn, Marshal . DoiULDSOl and the other federal office-holders who have been so largely concerned in the difficulties of the Territory, and thus open the Courts of law to the people of Kansas, events night take such a run before his advent as greatly, to relieve him afterwards. We presume, however, that he will be left to meet the emergency alone. Oea. Pierce is not sufficiently grateful to Mr. Buchabak for relieving hint Iron further Presidential service, to be disposed to smooth bis official path by any preliminary action of his own. Private business, changes in the Tariff, schemes of private plunder, will probably divide the attention of Congress with specula- ' tions concerning the Cabinet, and applications for place and power with the new Administration. There is a large amount of money in the Federal treasury, and there are plenty of , adventurous gentlemen who will think it n shame that it should remain to be wasted by their successors. One generation of plunderers goeth and another cometh: and this is about all the variety which the operations of cur Government afford us. The News by the Illinois. By &e Ilinoit, which arrived on Saturday with the California mail of Nov. 5, we learn that the Golden State has given her electoral vote to James Bcthakax. Returns from all the counties were not, of course, received, at the time of the steamer's departure from San Irancisco, but sufficient wss known to render it pretty certain that Mr. Bccbaxak had ob-, tained a plurality of over six thousand, votes. TiUMoac stands nest in the racy, and Fbe-kovt lags fur behind. The defeat of the Republicans in California is attributed to the imperfect organisation of the party, and also to the same .causes that insured its defeat in Pennsylvania and Indiana. If Mr. Fillmore had not been a candidate, three-fourths oi the Tote he received would undoubtedly have been . given to CoL Fbemost. The sketion, we are happy to add, passed . off failiy and peaceably. There were no riots . a,t the polls, and no ballot-box stuffing. On the 8d tf November, the Rrate arms, then in the pcaeession of the Vigilance Committee, Wis handed over to the State Custodian, and Govern or Jomsoa immediately withdrew his proclamation of insurrection, which gave the city a technically legal election. In the city of San V Francisco, the People's or Reform Ticket; has been carried by a large majority. This issae was regarded as an event of even greater) Importance than the Presidential election, as its success would insure the prosecution cf those measures of Reform inaugurated by the late Vigilance Committee, and would be a virtual indorsement of its acts. As an dastratioMi of the reforms accomplished by the Vigilance Committee, the fact is noticed in the papers, that though overs thousand new voters were mads previous to the 4th, and though .every exertion was made by each party to turn out its entire strength, yet the vote of the city ens Several hundreds lass than that of last year. It is annonnced nosltlTr tfcat On i, p ficoxT and J. C McKinaxx. Democratic can- -didatei, have beee elected to Congress, but the J tumpieuoa of the Legialatare was not known.

The people of the Gadsde I tmlic, t fxcja the Los Aryrlcs S: bad met to take the necessary steps for the formation of a State Government. The Ter-litory .which it is proposed to esS ArUona, has now a population of about 10,000 souls. A terrible tragedy had occurred at Nevada, Some of Tom Belt's gang escsped from jaU, and, being followed and overtaken, an encounter ensued, in which the Sheriff was shot dead snd another of bis party mortally wounded. A confession, made by one of this same gsng, gives some curious revelations concerning crimes and criminals in California. Mr. Heebest, Member of Congress, left San Francisco on the 6th for Washington. The D0tti of that city makes a bitter attack on BuBEtr, who replies in an address to the people of California. We give both the benefit of their statements. From the Mexican State of Sonora, we learn that a revolution had broken ont there, and that the Governor had been forced to fly. Intelligence from Oregon and Washington Territories is not important. The JUinuit has Lroughf in treasure over fl,800,U We receive by this arrival a fortnight's later news from New-Granada, and portions of Central America. Nothing new has turned up in relation to the diplomatic rupture between Great Britain and New-Granada. Two Eng-lih war vessels had arrived at Aspinwall and more were expected. It is not believed, however, that they will proceed to a blockade. The English residents at Bogota have met to petition Iord Clarendon against such a measure. The Panama Star mid Herald talcs np Mr. Corwixe's report on the massacre, and recommends the adoption of his projositions for the protection of U. S. eitizins on the transit. As New-Granada, the Star and llrrohl argues, is not in Central America, this matter cannot, as the English press apprehend, reopen the Central American question. From Costa Rica we learn that eat prejia. raiiono were going on for the prosecution of an aggressive war against Walkeb. Seventy -five thousand dollur; Lad been votod to defray expenses, and large reinforcement of Salvadori-ans and Guatemalians were poming in. The Illiitois also brings hrtr intelligence from the Sandwich Islands, Navigators' Island the South American Republics and the West Indies. A full summary is given in this morning's paper ; but we do not find in the news anything that merits special comment. Funeral Rites and Wrong. It is a happy attribute of the Roman Catholic Church, that it can enact umptuary laws, im-porsible to the civil legislature snd to other religious organizations. Bishop Baylet, of the Newark Diocese in New-Jersey, has just exhibited this power in an order prohibiting nndue displays at funerals. lie forbids the use of more than a half-dozen carriages in the cortlyr. thns destroying 6ne very serious source of outlay, that swells the undertaker's bill, and only accommodates the curious, idle and really Indifferent throng, who haunt such occasions with the ardor and rapacity of so many ghouls. It is a sad thing to say of earthly friendships, but we suspect fow die w hose real lovers may not be compressed in the number of vehicles which the Catholic prelate licenses. If a similar restriction could bo made general, a crying evil of the day would meet with salutary abatement. We refer to the cost of burying the dead. The expense of living has not augmented more distressingly than the expense of dying. If it is difficult, under present high prices., to live in health, it is comparative ruin to be sick, and to pass into the hands of the undertaker is jositive bankruptcy. There is no family u the great cities, we imagine, at whose doors the grim monster has recently knocked, but has been startled at the amount of the items tw the very ino6t economical of funeral ceremonies. Charges accumulate on charges; and what with the service of the sexton, the coffin-maker, the hearse, the carriage the gwe-diggvr. ttie cemetery, the roarble-scnlptor, the fabricators of mourning garments, and other ghastly circumstances grouped about the last end of all of us, the bill very seldom foots at less than a hundred or two dollars, and we have heard of instanoes where they have attained even to thousands. In such a state of things, nobody that is not comfortably off in this world's goods can afford to die. It is a luxury too costly for common people. Suicide is absolute extravagance. A new terror is added to death ; and to the personal grief at the loss of friends, is appended, in spite of fine sentiment, a sordid pecuniary study of the ways and means of interment. A comparison of such expenses to-day with what they were twenty years approves that the progress of luxury in that kind equals that of all other conditions cf life. The remedy for this sumptuarv excess must in general depend upon individual courage. t require some courage to depart from the prevalent fashion in matters of the sort, where aspersions of our love, and libcrali:. and unaffected sorrow are easily founded on an omission to attend a lost friend to the grave with a display such as others in the same rank of life are accustomed to receive. There is a natural relnctanee to quarrel with an undertaker's bill, though obviously exorbitant and dispropor-tioned. There should, however, be no sueh false sentiment. At such periods of sorrow a spirit of not parsimonious economy, that seeks to brare all things becoming and decent, is much better placed than the ostentatious pride which leads to outlays we cun ill support, in order to rival the similar ostentation of others. Like the Chinese, we are Tery apt to fling into the tomb of the dead the food and raiment needed for the living. One step towsrds reform lies, therefore, in the power of every person, who by setting an example of careful economy in funeral expenses, countenances his next door neighbor in like abstinence. Snch an example was set by the. late Bosjtxll C. Colt, a wealthy, public-spirited and widely-respected citizen of Peterson, N. J., whose remains were consigned, to the grave on Wednesday last. The Newark Advertiser informs us .y II had directed, by an indorsement the out aids of his will, in his own. haud-writtng, that his funeral should taks place err in the morning, and in the ilnipUet and fltiit tmannrr. It took place at tX o'clock, in tbe uomlsg, and witbeut aaj iavitatioae, except to the immediate relatives. Nothing was known xcert the time U would taks place.

There were eight earrUra, who were dreeaea in black, bet no paH bearers ; nor was there aoy other vehicle i present but the Leeree. The long eolemn precc Ian i Bering unoefcratatoualy along in the stillness of the inorning, without a word spoken, and free from the clatter of the horses hoofs,' or the roll of carriage, gwre an impress to the acene that will long be lewese-bered. No man was evT earned to Lis grave in a more appropriate manner. It would be well if others would profit by the example eetabliahed by the directions of this dietinguiahed man. The tt tintmy given by the voluntary attendrjtce of so large and so respectable a body of people composed of hi immediate neighbor, could not be mistaken. The mills of the te wn were toppe I, and many of the stores and places of buin'-M closed. The people loved and honorrd him, and many a sincere tear fell at hi grave from the eyes f the peer and the humUt." i Another step, and one that it reflects little credit upon our national character for beneficent enterprise not to have adopted long ago, I lies in the formation of societies for the inter- I ment of the poor. Such institutions have been found to work to the bst purpose in England and France. They might be introduced , here with equal efficacy ; and much of the means of life the poor are obliged to w:.?te upon their dead saved to the necessitous sur- ' vivors. Benevolence can ask no more useful channel than this. Anything to abate the ! mischief of funeral extravagance. A return to primitive incremation and urn-burial would alnioht be justified by the existing practice. NlCAK0,rA IsrERF.STI.Vr. CORRESPOVD- encf.. In another column will be found nn in- tcrcstir g letteT from Seftor Ferrer, tin new ' Nicnraguan Minister to the United States, con- . ceniing the affairs of that country. It is writ- ' ten in reply td certain inquiries from Gen. ; Caziikeau. I It is easy to see, however, that this letter ii really designed by the Nic -raguan Minister a a reply to the powerful arraignment of Gen. Walker's conduct, especially in the execution of Salazaji, published in the Times a few days since under the signature ' A Voice from Nicaragua." That letter was so evidently written by one entirely fan.iliar with the whole secret history of Gon. Wai.kek' administration, and it denounced his conduct with so much cmj.hasis of facts as well as of language, that it could scarcely fail to challenge the attention of the representative of Gen. Walker in this country. Seiior Feucer's reply justifies tiie execution of &ALAZAR on the ground that he had abandoned the cause of Walker and taken up arms against him. It denies also the statement of Walker's indebtedness to him for pecuniarv aid. These are points concerning which but little evidence is accessible to the public. We resume that we shall hear further from our Corres;ondent on this subject. Keopi:mo of tile Slave-Tr.vkk. Gov. Adams is not destined to receive the support of the Virginia Democracy after nil, in his project of reopening the slave-trade. The Richmond Ktiiju'.rer, which is the authoritative expounder of the opinions and purposes of the Democratic Party in that State, opposes and denounces it with a good deal of earnestness and warmth. It refutes the Governor's arguments in support of the necessity of such a 6tep, and contends further that it is an impossibility. Even if the repeal of our own laws against it could be secured, the law of the whole civilized world pronounce it piracy, and those lawsei least are beyond our control. And to close the case, the Enquirer urges that the South cannot afford to excite the opposition and hostility which such a project cannot fail to bring upou her. We are curious to see what the other lave-holding States will have to say about this matter. It has been broached by the Executive of one of the Southern States, of the State which claims to lead Southern opinion. It is put forward by him boldly and upon grounds that concern the interests of the whole South. They cannot well avoid meeting it in some way or other. The most Southern of these Stati s. Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi. may indorse the views of Gov. Adajm. But the rest of the slaveholding States will be. more likely, in our opinion, to follow the lead of Virginia, than that of South Carolina. In fact the interests of the slave-yrorfw-i' States are against the proposed measure, while it is odIv those States which are slave consumers that arc supposed to m for it. Sucks of Political ial The Richmond jy,q irer is making a very vigorous and desperate efl'ort to reconcile itself to the anticipated administration of Mr. Bcchaxax. We have already noted its sudden change of tone upon the return of Gov. Wise from Wheatland, and it has ever since that time urged upon the Southern Democracy the duty of lieing moderate in its expectations. The Pacific Railroad letter, however, which Mr. BrCHARA. sent to California just previous to the election, rather staggers the Enquirer. It is in such palpable snd direct hostility so the strict construction doctrines of the Virginia school of politicians, that an explicit indorsement of it by them is almost impossible.' The Efifninr; in a recent article from which we make extracts elsewhere, takes the ground that Mr. Buchakak was supported by the Southern Democracy in spite of his known support of the Pacific Railroad, and because this sacrifice of principle on their part was necessary to the defeat of the Republican candidate. But it contends that on this subject the party is not required to follow him, and declares that, for its own part, wlale it will sustain his administration in its general course, upon this subject it will adhere to its originel convictions and act in strict conformity to the " time-honored principles of the State-Rights, strict-construction Democracy of Virginia." Thus goes overboard ont of the planks of the Cincinnati platform. There is little doubt that on thia subject the Southern Democracy will have its own way. The vote of California was secured by the Railroad letter. The people of California will wait a long time before the road is built by the party which Mr. Bet has ax professed to represent. aaJfaewjMMMii A Crsiors Atfais. The arrest of parties at Boston on suspicion, or rather confession, of being engaged In the Slave-trade, is a curious affair. It seems that a Spaniard named Keg&st was arrested at Salem, who said he -was captain of a schooner from "Wilmington, ,KC, which had been wrecked off Cape Cod. Be was hailed by another Spainard named Dx Mxia, who afterwards surrendered him, confessed to havisg been concerned in the fitting out of the slaver, and charged Keener with hal ing scuttled and sunk, her, after robbing; hex of flO,WO rhiciVa on hoard fr Ac pur chase of slaves. Keoxzt says the money is buried. PosT-Orncr Departmeht. It "is stated that the forthcoming report of the Poetmaster-Oeneral will show a deficiency of two millions seven hundred thousand dollars, or one hundred thousand more than last yesr. This has arisen partly from a great extension of the operations of the Department. But in tiew of the constant and increasing deficiency in this branch of the public service, the franking privilege ought to be abolished. Members of Congress need not be deprived of the facilities y hich it affords, but these facilities should no longer be furnished at the expense of the Post-Office Department. Let them be paid for out of the general treasury. They are for purposes connected with the general government, and as such should be afforded. Let each member cf Congress, instead of having the right to frank mail matter, receive a thousand dollars worth of stamps, each Session, to be charged to, the expanses of Confess. This would relieve the Department from expense, and the members from an arduous duty. Goor fob Gr.AKDKOTHEK ! We clip the following nood hit from the Column rial: The Cwmerria!

The mnn was taken intj custody, nud said his name was teoB.t K. Nxokct, aDd that he bad been captnin of the schooner w hich hud recently left Wil jiington. South Carolina, but that he had been wrecked near Cape Cod, and had. reached the shore at Salem after much hrd--hip. in one of the schooner's boats. As no boat could be seen, and as none had been seen on the oast nt that spot which could not be accounted for, the statement of Ni.cELr, in the latter iarticular, wj doubted. While on his way to Salem jail with the suspected indKidual, w ho said he w as a Spaniard, the officers encountered a Mr. Vr. Hist, a Spanish merchant iu 'his city, (at we are informed.) ana his brother-ln-ia. who became interested in tbe prisoner: and ftnail .. when Nelbbt was delivered over to the I'm ted States officer, 1k Mbka paid down $&.U00 bail for his future appearance, and he was released. While in Snlem. however, Nkiikkt stated that when hi schooner went down, he had taken care to remove JKMXH trom on board, which was designed for trading purposes, and that it had been buried in tbe sand at SsJem beach by himself, the rust nnd a Bailor who had come ashore with him in the boat, and he even irave the description of the spot in which the treasure was to be found. An investigation showed that the storv was a falsehood, although Nek bet insisted that it was not, and "hat the money must have been removed by bis companions. The information was sent to lioston, nd another search for the money proved fruitless on the part of the officers, tkquentlv Nti.atT was handed over to the C. S. Marshal, nnsi brought to thia city, where he was baUud by Ds Mesa, as described. This was on Tuesdujr last. On Wednesday morning Dk Meu came into the I'nited States Court with Nhx.cet. and delivered him up, receiving his Jo. (XX i bail, and then came the exposure of the affair, which before had been involved in greater mystery. In the presence of Ds Uiki. he dctiuvnitd him a an accomplice iu the tlape-trade. and ax eint participator in a theme of robber', which, it is to te presumed, iueluded the sacrifice of the pe-. uninry interests ot certain parties now unknown. Nn. bit declared that the Toe had been ftttea out at W iliningtoD. North CoxoUna, as a slaver, and that slut had proceeded on her vsyage, having Slo.UoO on board : but that arrangements had beeu made, in which Da Mr a Vras implicated, by the man N cubit (with what truth we havs no knowledge.) as s ccJ consj iraUr, to sink the ship, after having robbed her of the money intended for tiie purchase of slaves. On t'-iis accusation Dr Mbka was apprehended, and put under bonds of JlO.tsJO. The chanres against him art that be was engaged in the slave-trade, and that he was an accomplice in the act of plundering a vessel onthehign seas. The examination of the parties to this strange history will take place on Mundav morning next, at 10 o'clock. NifcBET says that he had tho schooner scuttled when M miles otT Cape Cod. and took to the boat and made for the shore as soon as she sunk. He ad heres to the story concerning the buried treasure, anr insists that He Mkxa and his brother-in-law. wh knew where it was bidden, have removed it. As w; hinted, there may well be doubt concerning th-rmth cf the story from first to last. Meantime, Mi lr Ur.A has been bailed; and more than usual in terest is felt in the question, whether there is a trea sure buried at Pickering's Cove, South Halem, or no.' If there is. anxious individuals, who are intent on it dii-covtry, may have a chance to get ricn all at once. If not, they will nnd themselves very much disappointed because of their L-ibor in vain. The above are statements made to us by parties who are reliable. Yunous rumors have been in circulation in regard to ths affair, among them one that Neubct was none other that the notorious Ds Costa, who as arrested in New-York a few days since, on the charge of fitting out the brig Braman for the Slave-trade, md escaped from the officer while on his way from the Court-Uouse to the jail, but instruction has been had from New-York that the description of Keoebt forwarded from this city does not tolly in any respect with that of De Costa. 8erias Aer ideal tbe Ncw.Ysrk aad Erie Sallrwasl. From the OUnn Adtertiaer, Ko. iS. A terrible accident happened yesterday morning to the Chicago Kx press, bound West, at the crossing half a mile Kast of Alleganv Station, occasioned by the breaking of a rail. The train was going at a fearful rate of speed, some of the passengers say 40 miles an hour, and nearly at of them say 85 miles hen the engine struck and broVe the rail, dragging the baggage-car off the track, and the two passe uger-cars in wHich were some ift or SO passengers becorn. lug uncoupled, went plunging into the earth, literally smashing them to pieces. The first passenger-car weLt over upon its side, thns loosening the forward wheels which came crashing through the floor of the car near its centre, stripping it of its furniture, and smashing everything before them. In this car ware some ten or twelve passengers, and marvelous as it muy seem, all escaped without serious injury. The second pansenger-rar was not so fortunate. In it were sous Is or SO passenger, and ths Conductor, Mikk Bu After uncoupling from ths first passenger-car, the second went to the left, first striking ths stone wall of the cattle-guard, then bounding forward to the sign-pofit at the road crossing, shivering it into a thousand sprinters tlien, still further forward and over on its side, where it lay when we reached the wreck. Both cars were literally gutted off their seats, and every pone of "glass and nearly all the blinds, and in fact the whole wood-work of the can was destroyed by the shock. The baggage-car was dragged some SO rods over the ties by the engine, which kept the track, but whether it was injured we did not learn, as it had been taken to Dunkirk - Looking at the wreck, it seems miraculous that half the passengers were not Instantly killed. Only thns persons were seriously hurt, and ws an glad to be able to stats that none were fatally injured. We eis. ited the three spoken of above, yesterday afternoon and found them all comfortable and doing weO. None of the passengers escaped injury, but three only were unable to proceed on their journey. Hoow Is. CaAM-BixiAUi took the train at this station at X o'clock, and escaped from the wreck with very little injury, although his clothes were badly torn. The following is a list of the injured: Jams B.
