' The cost of the war, thus far, has been toogfSent; the number of troops, Bt present, too larfee, and the success'of the American arms too brilliant to admit the thought of relinojrishing any of the advantages already gained over our foe, or to withdraw from the coufltry until the object, which called our troops|hto it, is completely accomplished and alieace triumphnndy'con-•qhered from Mexico.

Freaks of Electricity. During the storm on the 8th inst., there were some curious phenomena exhibited in the effect produced upon the wire ofthe Telegraph, and tbe instruments of the operators in the office. On commencing to use One ofthe instruments in the morning, it was found'to be unmanageable, from tbe : great surplus of electric fluid, which, of itsdlf, put the pen in rapid motion, "writing dots," as the term is, in style worthy of an old hand at the instrument. It being found impracticable to do anything with such an erratic and self-willed agent, the operator turned tbe current of the fluid to the ground, and Ipt it work off the extra steam as fast as it pleased. One of the wires, when disconnected with the instrument, was discovered emitting from its point a most brilliant flfime, of the intensity peculiar to electric fire, and as large as the blaze of a candle. This striking appearance being caused by the passage of the fluid from tbe termination of tbe wire into tlie ...

Congressional. WftsiiixoTtix, Jan. 4, 1847. The ffreat topic of the week has been slavery—the subject which, sooner or later, is destined to become the all-absorbing theme of political, religious, aiuf social discussion and action in this country, until the master evd from which it springs, is removed. The House of Representatives js fairly involved in the discussion, and with a spirit and apparent earnestness that give the best hopes for aii auspicious result. The discussion, it svill be remembered, has thus far been only iqxui the hill for increasing the army, and voting supplies. Mr. Kind's resolutions, which have been referred to the proper committee, gave direction to the discussion ; and when introduced svill open the whole subject, whether'we are to have any more slnse territory, for consideration. The position taken by tbe Northern members, has thus far been Jinn, kind, and uncompromising. If the proverbial want of principle in politicians did Hot suggest a doubt wheth...
