The Japanese The accounts which have reached this conntry of the arrival of the steam-frigate Niagara at Yedo, and the return of the Japanese Embassy to their native land, indicate that there is not much probability of any sanguine expectations of extensive and profitable trade being realized, and that, while for all our trouble and expense we will reap but little reward, onr swarthy visitors will be enabled to promote the welfare of their nation very materially by disseminating the ideas they acquired here. The Japanese are a very imitative people, and when furnished with models of an invention which is calculated to prove useful to them, they are not disposed to purchase large quantities of such articles in a complete form, but their own ingenious mechanics and machinists at once proceed to construct similar contrivances. The vast numbers of American presents they received, therefore, will not be apt to open a new market in their country, but will only serve to enlighten t...

The Canadian Slave Case. The English journals are already discussing what is to be done with Anderson, the fugitive negro, when translated from Canada to England, _Tsy virtue of the writ of Habeas Corpus lately issued by the Court of Queen's Bench in London. His immediate transmission, should the Canadian authorities obey the injunction of the English Court of Law, cannot be expected. On the 19th ultimo, a Queen's messenger sailed by the Cnnard steamer with the writ of habeas corpus, directed to the Governor General of Canada, directing him to bring up the body of John Anderson before Her Britannic Majesty's Court of Queen's Bench, at Westminster. As Sir Edmund Head, the Canadian Governor, is now in England, on leave of absence, the writ clearly cannot be delivered to Mm in Canada , Probably, it is also directed to other official functionaries. r Supposing, even, that the Canadian Judges , who have already decided that Andessok is to be rendered back to the United States, as...

The Union victories in Virginia a»_d Tennessee are hailed with the utmost enthusiasm by the friends of the Eepublio in both branches of Congress, and by those who are congregating here in advance of the inauguration.

Though the Cotton S tates have long been distinguished for the exclusiveness of taeir devotion to agr icultural and commercial pursuits, there is one branch of manufacturing to which a number of their citizens have recently applied themselves with extraordinary zeal. We allude to the fashionable and favorite pursuit of devising flags for the " Independent Republics -*' which have attempted to force themselves into a new political existence, by sundering the ties that have heretofore bound them to the American Union.

Mr. Crittenden presented to day, in the Senate, a petition _signed by thousands of citizens ef Magsaonusetts_, asking the adoption by Congress of bis resolutions. He made a few cJcquent remarks , stating that he was glad that the people of Massachusetts had eo nobly come forth to _reScoo the Union from the threatening _destruction. Senator Sumner, who feltgallesi that hia constituents should have addressed themselves to the venerable Senator from Kentucky, and not to him, was brought immediately to his feet, ohargitg the citizens who subscribed the petition with ignorance, and giving amongst other excuses,as a reason why he could no vote for the resolutions, that his colored fellow-citizens were to be _politically disfranchised if they were adopted. Be again made the assertion that Lafayette was an anti-slavery man, and would not have come to the assistance of this country if he had known that slaver...

The Mornll Tariff Bill. The rates' of duty upon nearly all important articles will be, under the Morrill tariff bill , very nearly identical with the average rates under the tariff of 1846. In substituting specific for ad valorem duties, an effort has been made, in most instances, to render the former no more burdensome than the latter were under the operations of Hon. Robert J. _Waiker's celebrated bill, but only to secure the proper amount of revenue and protection at times when the articles imported are sold for low prices as well as when; they command high prices. Among many American importers there is but little objection to the abolition of the pre. sent warehouse system. They complain that it has a constant tendency to stimulate the importation of goods not legitimately demanded by the wants of our country, and that thus unsaleable articles ate sent here on speculation, and eventually sold at a ruinous price, which would never be imported if the duties were promptly paid....
