Mr. Lewis offered to ameficl hiilast reaelution by adding "if not inconipatiablo fyi.tfitbo public interest," but the House rejected the fPr limpndmeat. ;> ... The Presi'diMit, ns u matter of course, declined a ompiiance with eii^er of these iequests;but what .'further action will be taken upon them in the houses it) which they oi iginated retnaius to be seen., The' announcement of their adoption surprised us Dot a little, and the reasons which have actuated the mem-jbers who passed them aie beyond our comprehension. Whatever the correspondence of ihe President with other naiious may beytii can have no effect or obligation upon the nation, until it has lead 10 a treaty or treaties of some kind, and they are ratified by the Sen-nle. The (Constitution indicates the manner and the proper lime in which all such information as concerns .Congress, or lequires its action, is to be laid before This ill-timed eargeiness, if not met in a proper Bpiiit>might end in destroying iu a single diay. measures which have been maluiing for more than a ye�r, and in soiious injury to the nation, but theie-jeotion in the House of Representatives of the amend-meiit "if not incompntiuhle whh the public i.itcresi," shows the lengths which ihosu who have adopted these measures are willing ir go in order to gruify a curiosity made criminal by the disregard of the public woifare with which ll is indulged.

Mr. Editor:-The opinion that improved prices for Cotton may leasonably be expected, if the present ciop ho not over 1.800,000 bales, appears to be thought by many to be lather dictated by feeling than authorized by facts, and that any material advance in existing prices musi aitse either from on overissue of currency or speculative operations. The price of every article must be regulated by the great law of supply and demand; as the formei is in excess it declines; as the advances; and if the prospect of Cotton be tried by this rule, a rigorous examination of the comparative production and consumplion, will not only wai rant the expections of better prices, but create wonder tha\ prices should have ever-declined as low as they have been.' The followingtable embraces a period of 8 years from 1834 to 1842 inclusive, and is confined to United States Cotton alone. Years. Consumption Production Average price 1st Jan. 16 15 15.J 9 Hi H 8 . From the foregoing Table it will be seen, that the average production for 8 years, has been 1,587,000. bales, and the average consump(totftl,542,000 bales. cei taudy such a near equality in the supply and de-r mand would not warrant, even witb every allowance for tbe excess of currency for a portion that tHttSf the great decline in the prices in 8 ye�rS from 16 doiKa, to 8, audio 1842 to the still lower price pf 6.
