The New York papers notice with strong approval the appointment

of Mr. John Quincy Adams to be Chairman of the Committee of Congress on Foreign Relations, in the room of Mr. Cashing. The change is one of considerable importance. Mr. Adams's recent lecture on the China war' in a literary institution at Boston, would alone suffice to show that he has at least no bigoted hostility to England in his view of existing questions. Mr. Cashing's feeling may be gathered from the fact, that he was accused, though upon very doubtful authority, of being an office-bearer,; if not President, of the great anti-British "Hunter's Association."
