NEW YORK HERALD? lork, Turnlay. July 1", 1*43. Ktmioui Srainoa?-Our readera will pleaae bear in wind that the Herald can I* olrtained daily, on the arrival of the car*, from Mr. Lewia, o|>poaite tha United Statu Motel. Linnpir.iriiiH,N. V ? Th? Herald can be had of Mr. Lewia, Rennelaer Houa?. Subacribera leaving their ad. Ireea w HI be (erred regalatly. Ma. D. L?man, Middletown,'Conn., ia Agent for the Herald, of whom may be obtained copies of the Daily and Weekly Herald. Sims Sinn, N. Y., Meaara. Stanton li Co. Kiioitok, N. T., Mr. Z. Waller. The Extradition Cask.?The case ol Christina tiilmour, as will be seen by our report, now only awaits the decision of the Commissioner, and the action of the Executive thereon, and then it will be i?een whether the Ashburton treaty in that respect is oi any wonn. ?o ac; 01 uongress nas incorporated that treaty amongst the statutes of these United States, and until some such enactment be passed, the treaty is of questionable efficiency. The officer sent in pursuit of this unfortunate woman, intelligent though he undoubtedly is and iwssessrd of much information which can be legitimately given in evidence to strengthen other legal testimony, is clearly unable to establish such a prima Jaria case as the law of the State of New York would require to justify a commitment for trial if the oftence had been committed wiihin her jurisdiction. How then shal' cases of this description be sustained 1 Must, in all instances, witnesses sufficient be tent across tlie Atlantic to es;nbli*h the guilt of fugiNves from justice, or will the written ^vid^nce taken by the investigating magistrate suffice 1 The admissability of the latter is more than questionable; and the inconvenience and burdensome expense attending the former, are such as to defeat the ends of justice in the great majority of caBes that may arise. A writ of habeas cor}** has been issued in the case of this " dalt Scotch lassie," as she is styled by her counsel, and it is anticipated that it will be carried up to the Supreme Court of the United States, where the binding force of the treaty itself will be contested. Here, then, this poor unfortunate?for that she is a mental imbecile we reiterate?must remain until the lawyers and the politicians have decided whether the treaty shall be enforced in good faith. If the law courts deem the treaty constitutional, there is yet much machinery necessary to render it more than a dead letter, and this alone can the politicians supply* But will such a Congress be elected as will be willing to leave untarnished the laurels which Mr. Webster gained by his negotiation of the treaty of Washington? The case becomes invested * ith a new interest when viewed in this aspect, and it is not unlikely that a combination ol circumstances may oostruct the operation of the tenth article of the treaty under which the surrender of this prisoner is demanded. The I)bama.?On this subject an article appeared in the editorial columns of the Herald on Sunday, which should have appeared amongst the miscellaneous matter of the paper, with an acknowledgment of the source whence it was extracted?an article in Blackwood's Magazine. The error is susceptible of eaBy explanation. Any person possessing but a limited knowledge of newspa|>er business,knows full well that communications on all conceivable subjects are pouring in upon the luckless wight whose bad fortune has made him an editor, and that passages from publications which have created an interest in the mind of some enthusiast, are transcribed and transmitted to newspaper estab tide in question was thus written out, and brought into t)^s office by a gentleman whose character has placed him above suspicion of fraud, and by some inexplicable accident, it found itself gracing our first column. We, however, have no hesitation in saying that the article was worthy of the place which it occupied, and that it had an especial appropriateness to the present circumstances in which the drama is placed. The Governor's Movements.?The Governor yesterday, in company with Gen. Storms and Alderman Browne, visited the Establishments for the Inspection of Beef and Pork, and examined them very minutely. Alter that, he accompanied Col. Bankhead on a visit to Governor's Island, where he was received with the usual salute. From thence, he went to Staten Island and visited the Quarantine Hospitals, 6cc , under Dr. Van Hoovenburgh. After dining there, the Governor returned to the city, and visited the Board of Assistant Alderment; then took tea with both Boards?visited the Board of Aldermen?and returned to Howards' Hotel for the night. To-day he visits Brooklyn and Greenwood Cemetery, and from thence down to the Hamilton House and Fort Hamilton. He will be accompanied by Mayor Sprague, of Brooklyn, Gen. Storms, Col. Hamilton and others. Tomorrow he is expected to viait the Farms on Long Island, and Blackwell's Island. United States Ship Falmouth.?As an instance of the power of the commanding officer of oui naval vessels m active service, to contribute to the comfort of the officers and crew under his command, we will state that this beautiful ship, the pet of the Navy, having been in commission twenty months, on arduous duty, requiring the vigilance of the officers to the utmost extent, returns to port under the most favorable auspices, every officer and man on board in love with the ship aud her commander. There are no charges preferred, for a coirt martialthere are no unkind feelings?there is nothing but the most perfect harmony, which, with the tnania that exists for court martials, is a most astounding fact. Capt. Mcintosh is the finest example of a gentleman it has been our good fortune to meet, and to the fatherly care of the young officers under his command, and his regard tor the more experienced, must be attributed the good feeling that exists between every individual that sailed in his ship. "Commodore Dallas."?The Philadelphia Ga> zette speaking of the late articles going the roundi of the papers headed " Death of Commodore Dal liis," says they have given unnecets&ry pain ? many friends of the gallant commodore. The offi cer recently deceased was named " Alexander J ['alias Brown " until within a few year* past, whei he had it changed to " Alexander J. Dallas."

The examioation ol tbi? ci*c wai rMumnl yesterday before Mr. Commissioner Kiriur, in the l'. S. Circuit Court, and tie question of tb? prisoner's sanity having already irttlnl, Mr. LoaD.who ipiwiriil for the Brit1 ish authorities, proceeded to establish his case; whTnoa, j to justify her surrender, he called the constable, Orerge McKay, who kad pursued the prisoner l;oir Scotland to i this country, and examined him to prove the murder, the identity of the prisoner, tic. . , He deposed that he kuaw John Gilniour, tke deceased ' husbaud of the prisoner; he saw hire at hia house in ln| thinnaii on or about the dih of January last, and he heard ol his death at the time it occurred. Mr. WttNct desired the witness to cocftue himself to facts within his own knowledge. Mr. Loao continued his examination, and the witness said he r< used to see the deceased about after the 11th January; he never saw the deceased alter that time, until he saw the body exhumed lor medical examination on the 99d April; he w. s an otticer of justicc, anil as sueh he attended the disinterment ; he waa Superintendent oi I'nlin. nf fh?? Connti- nl R<>ii(riiU'< tho KnrJw Kavinor ho*n I disinterred, a portion ol tilt; stomach wan given to him, i which he frcured in a box and conveyed to Dr. Wildy, ! who in a few days succeeding exhibited to him a quantity ' of arsenic which had been discovered in the stomach by three physicians, who had applied the usual testa; inquiry was instituted aa to the cause of death in consequence of certain reports which were in circulation. Mr. Win*** objected to the production ol reports as evidence in this case, and said if reports were to be received, he should feel it to be his duty to give other re]>orts in evidence. The Commissioner, after hearing a few observations from Mr.Wariii r and Mr. Lord, decided that he must confine the examination to legal evidence. Mr. Loan continued the examination, and the witness said, alter the death of John Uilmourthe prisoner returned to the house ol her father. Mr. Lord?Did a report arise of foul death 1 Mr. Warner again objected to reports being given in evidence. Mr L?rd contended that on those reports arising, th? prisom r fled from justice, and that it was admissible evidence in a preliminary examination to show the conduct of the prisoner. Mr. Warnkr said a loul death wai assumed, of which there was pi yet no proof. | i?ir ldhd repneu lum ne nan proveu a ileum, iinu a disinterment ; then theie wan n report and an immediate I flight, and he contended that it was admissible. The Commissioner said he thought it wan admissible testimony. Mr. Warner intimated then that he should have to appeal from the Commissioner's decision. Mr. Loso desired the witness to state the circumstances attending the flight, and he said that after the reports got into circulation he went down to the house of the deceased and made enquiries from the servants, and a warrant was thereupon issued against the prisoner, which he and another officer proceeded to her lathers bouse in Ayrshire to execute, and then he fourd shv had fled. No person about her lather's house could give him any information about her, and after making Mime enquiries in the neighborhood he returned home. Hu sent officers to ditterent point* to make enquiries but without the desired result. He next made enquiries about the purchase of the arsenic and he found a shop in Renfrew kept by one Hugh Wiley where it had been sold. Mr. Warnkr objected to this evidence an it wbs a matter that waa not within the witness'.s personal knowledge. Some discussion ensued on this point, in the course of which it was ascertained that the witness hail seen an entry in the Druggist's book which was the amount of information which he possessed. Mr Lord contended that heconld give particular acts in corresjiondenceto satisfy the commissioner for the pur. poses of this enquiry. Mr. Warner denied kit right to introduce reports and hearsay evidence, lor the purpose of bolstering up a bad case under a bad treaty?a treaty which was so bad that it was not worth the paper on w hich it was written. Because the British government had entered into a treaty with the government of the United States, all the rules of evidence were not to be broken down, and his client given up, right or wrong. The Commissioner said that circumstances which the witness had heard from others were inadmissible. Mr. Lord said the correspondence of lacts made them evidence. The witness then went on to say that he satisfied himself of the prisoner's absence on the 13th of May. He was instructed by the Sheriit of Renfrew to make a further invejtigation of the matter, and he accordingly proceeded to Cumberland in Ayrshire, and at the coach office he ascertained that a man named Jamison and his wished taken the coach that morring. He did not know Jamison He learut that Jamison's wife had left for Carlisle on the 34th of April, being the morningon which he went to apprehend the prisoner. He proceeded by the coach to Carlisle, and enquired on the night of his arrival of the coachman lor persons answering the description of Jamison and his wile, and he leorned that they had arrived in and left Carlisle. Mr. Warner again objected to this course of examination. How, he asked, did the witness know of his own knowledge that it was the same coach and coachman that brought the Jamisons. The coachman's having told him so did not constitute it admissible evidence. Mr Lord contended that he had a right to show that the witness was led from place to place by discovering the route of persons calling themselves Jamison, and why he was led to a certain result. Alter argument, the point was abandoned, and the examination continued. He lia la warrant tor the arrest of this woman, and he found her on bevdthebrig Eicel.on the'ilst June in this port. He ascertained that she had assumed the name ui Mrs. Spiers. She denied on tioard that her name was Christina Gilmonr. He was led from Car lisle to Liverpool by the de criptions of certain persons, und at the latter place he made enquiries from a person named MoDougal, at the Railroad Station. Mr. Warwer objected to the recital ol what McDougal told him. The witness passed then to another point, e*id said lie found the names Mr. end Mrs. Spiers on Shaw's shipping books,and from the description given to him Mr. Warner objected to this information being given. Mr. Lord argued that it was a description which had guided the witness in all his travels?but it was deemed inadmissible, and the witness proceeded: He found two persons of the name of Spiers. He afterwards found two persons calling themselves Spiers on board the brig Exel, of which the prisoner was one. Mr. Warner cross-examined the witness at great length. He said he was a police officer for the county of Renfrew, and he was also a sheriff's officer for that county. His jurisdiction was confined to that county. He was in no other respect an officer, minister, or authority of the General Governmerit (those being the wordsof the treaty.) Of his own knowledge he knew nothing of the prisoner's criminality. He was examined closely on the subject of the prisoner's identity. He said he recollected seeing her at the house of Gilmour the deceased, at the time he had previously mentioned. He was next exam ined ps to his knowledge of arsenic, and be sa'd he had seen it at least fifty times, hot he had never been engaged in any business or profession which would bring him in connection with that po-son. The l>ody of Mr. Gilmour had been interred some three or four months when the disinterment took place, and he afterwards saw R small quantity of arsenic which had been taken from the sto< mach He had before Been arsenic which had been taken from deceased persons, and he had no doubt that the substance which be saw was arsenic. He was examined as to his knowledge that the disinterred body wu the body of the pririner's husband, and he replied that the grave was pointed out by the friends of the deceased, whose name was on the coffin plate. The cross examination was continued at great length on these and a variety of other points. Mr. Lord said he should there rest hiscase. Mr. Warner said he should onj?ct to the gentleman's calling additional testimony at a subsequent stage of the proceedings if he rested now. Mr. Lord said he should rest then, and moved for a warrant for the surrender of the prisoner. ?hiq mat nc moven mai ?ne n? uisciiargeu. Mr. Lord?Have you any evidence to call? Mr WiKiii? I do not doem any necessary, as you have made out no rate against her. Mr. Lord?I will sum up as the case now standi, hut if you have ary evidence cull it. Mr. Washes?|f you will n^rec to sum up as the cbac now stands, 1 will tuy that I have no evidence. He then proceeded to address th'' Commissioner on the case as it stood, and ho contended that there was no legal evidence given that a mu der had tteen committed, or (if a murdei had been committed, that the prisoier was th^ guilty per1 son. The body from which the nrsnic was taken was no* identified, but if it were, th?rc whs no evidence to show that the aranic had not been administered by his owr ' hand He also raited objection* to the warrant, and verj ably diicutaed the various points in the cat*, and urgei that the Commissioner was hound to ?et the prisoner a' liberty. Mr. Lord addressed the Commissioner, and contendei < that there was sufficient evidence to warrant the sutreu der of the prisoner to the British authority. B|The Commission:r in'imateii tnat lie should take seve ) ral days to conn ler the conclusion to which he ihouli _ come, and the prisoner wa< remanded to goal to await (hi reiult.

Lost by a vote ot 11 to ? Tht Street Contract again? Alderman Waisrman called up document No. 2, being an ordinance to divide the city into sixteen districts, aBd making sixteen contracts to sweep the streets ol the city. Adopted. Alderman Watshmin moved a re-consideration of the vote on the lirst section ot the ordinaxce, which was lost at the last meeting by a tie vote. He stated that although he voted in favor of thu passage of the section, yet it being a tie vote he thought the courtesy of the Board would grant him the privilegeof moving a re consideration. AlJermanPuHDY decided th it the gentleman could not move a reconsideiation, he having voted in the affirmative which was lost. Alderman Watchman moved an appeal from the decision of tl?e chair, which was sustained by a vote of 10 to 6. He then introduced a new section, dividing the city into eight sections and granting eight contracts. Aide-man Lite opposed any plan cxcept that of the old system. Alilerman Esimans also advocated the old plan in preference, and said he was opposed to all contracts. Alderman Tillou said tnat he had seen or heard of no evidence that the people were opposed to contracts for sweeping the streets properly made with an eye to economy, for the city's welfare. Alderman Emmans said that he believed that the gentl.-men from the 5th and 9th wards had acted in bad laith when they voted for the appointment of superintendent f streets and street inspectors?that he considered the contract system in any and every shape as a Federal dectrine, as it placed power and might in the hands of the few, and not the many. He believed that the people were opposed to any contract for sweeping the streets, and had so decided at the last election?and he also believed that the people expected that the present contract would be repealed before the month of May had expired, instead of its being talked of in the month of July. Alderman Watikhin replied, and contended that econ. omy called for the sweeping by contract?and figures and numbers shewed that that plan was far preferable. Alderman Hatvif.ld saiu ttiat. tne reason wny me expenses ju 1S3S and 1836 for sweeping streets wera so heavy, was because wages then were $2 and $1 60 per day, and also that th? great fire and heavy snow ol that year added tens of thousands of dollars to'the current eapense. The debate was continued by Aldermen Tillou, Waterman, Emmana, and Lee, and the battle so often (ought was refought until half pest 9 o'clock, when a vote wps called on the first section. A derman Scoles moved to amend by making lfl districts. Alderman Baiaos said he had yet to learn that the contract system was the most economical. He had seen no evidence of that fact, and he therefore could not see how a contractor could perform the service any cheaper than the corporation. He said he was opposed to any contract system not that he was decidedly in lavor of the aid syi. tem, but he thought that each ward could sweep their own streets, under the direction of the street Inspector. The motion to amend was lo>g by a vote ot 7 to 10. The ayes and nays were then called on the first section as offered by Alderman Waterman, which was lost by Ayes?Aldermen Clayton, Tillou, Nash, Waterman, Brevoort, Scoles, and Rawson?7. Nays?Aldermen Woodhull, Dilnning, Martin, Emmaas Vandervoort, Purdy, Hatfield, Briggs, Brady and Lie?10. Slight applause at this result was heard in tha lobbies, which the President ordered Mr. Hays to suppress. The question on the title ol the ordinauce was then taken and lost. The resolution adopted by this Board,as passed in May, refusing to pay the street contractors for any furtcer services was then ordered to be sent to the Board of Assistant Aldermen. TAe City Wutch.?Alderman Briggs offered a resolution calling ior a committee to inquire into certain charges made against a Captain of the watch in a paper called "The Subterranean." Alderman Ukderwood opposed the reading of the article. Aldciman advocated it. Alderman Tillou said be thought such allegations should receive notice^if not true they should be contradicted, and if correct should be enquired intoThe resolution and article were finally referred to a special committee consisting of Alderman Briggs, Tillou and Woodhull. More Street Cleaning?Alderman Briggs presented a resolution calling up in the committee on s'reets, to report the most economical plan ot cleaning the streets except by contract?adopted. Buying Futl ?Alderman Lee presented a resolution authorising the purchase of fuel for the present year.

This petition wa< advocated by Assistant Alderman Smith,and opposed by Messrs. Boggr, Williams and Pettigrew. Alderman Bofgs wanted the matter referred to the Committee on Police, Watch and Prisons, with power. The other gentleman thought if we had laws they ought to be enforced. The mem-Trial waa linally referred to the Committee on Police, W itch and Prisons, (without power.) Tht Ntu> York Stale Re fitter.?Resolved ta appropriate $67 60 lor the purchase ol 44 copies of the New York State Register for 1843, for the use of the members of the Common Council.

Conmi ?m summoned ye*terduy afternoon to hold an inquest on the body or a j ou?Kf"tn9lc, found drowned at the foot of 30th street, North river. On examination of the body the wa? found to brtmienti, and other appearances combined lead to a belief that like Mary Rogers and the Oerman girl teund in the well at the Maniion on Murray Hill, (he ha* been the victim ot her teducer. Her dress rept esented her as in humble life, she being clad in a figured calico Irock, muslin petticoat and chemise, white cotton stockings and black leather shoes. Her hair ii dark, nearly black, and her teeth are all complete. From the decomposed state of the body it was impossible to recognise any features, but her perseu conveyed the impression that she was about 17 years of age. The finding of the body of a man in any ef the waters aJja".ent to our populous city never creates much surprise, but that of a woman is so strange and peculiar that suspicion always follows the discovery. A poii mortem examination will take place to day by Dr. Wm. 8. Tompkins at the dead house is the Park, where the body can be seen by those desirous to recognise it. A Philadklphian in Anthony Street On Sunday evening a Mr. Joshua HalI,of Second street, Philadelphia, was attracted by the luring smiles of Catharine Carurs, to the house of No. 131 Anthony street, and while there was robbed of hU pocket book containing upwards of |>6d, with which Catharine made herself suddenly absent. He followed her closely up and discovered her whereabouts in a grocery kept by one Terrence O'Rouke, No. 103 Anthony street, to whose safe keeping she had consigned a portion of the money, which Mr Hall recognized, one of the bills being a three dollar bill of the broken bank of the North River Banking Company ; also a ten dollar bill on the .Mechanics' Bank of Philadelphia. Officer McOrath arrested the frail one and found in the room a $60 bill ot the Phiadelphia Bank, which with some small bills made up the amount lost. Catharine was lully committed, and Mr. Hall taught a lesson to walk Broad way in New York with more caution and propriety. Sudden Death at the Toilet Table.?On Sunday afternoon as Mrs. Margaret Flick, residing at No. Ill Ooerck street, was combing her hair and finishing her toilet, she suddenly (ell down and expired. Her health for year* past had been very good, but she occasionally sHlfered a slight indisposition,caused by palpitation of the heart, but not of sufficient seriousness to cause her friends any alarm lor her life.

The defendant is the Commandpr of a fast sailing clipper, built for trading voyages Irom New York to various ports in North and nu.iiu uuruimu, una ine piaintni is u uuiuurr una ures* maker, residing in Madison street in this city. John Jones, who is ascribed as "a silver beater by trade, and a lamp lighter by profession," and his wife, who appeared to be the bosom friend of the plaintiff, proved that the gallant Captain and the lair milliner hailed from the came village in the land of steady habits. Inthelyear 1839, the defendant come to visit the plaintiff at the house of John Jones, where she resided, and on every visit to this port he repeated his visit; they set together in her room; they walked out together, end a very close intimacy was shown to exist tor the space of * years. At length, hawever. the blighting intelligence was brought to the plaintifi that the defendant had disregarded all his plighted faith, and vows of love and eternal devotion, and had linked his fate for life with another?in short he was mnr. ricd at some other port, which in the course of his busi. ness, he wrscalled to visit. No reason was given for his cruel neglect of the plaintiff, but various letters were read in evidence which the gay Lothario had written to the plaintiff, in oneol which he lamented the necessity which existed for young men to lay up some capital, before they undertook the responsibilities of the married life, and he expressed the hope that he should soon be able talk the matter over with '-his dearest girl" oo his arrival in Nb"7 York, when he promised they would have a "regular built promenade," In another letter he complained uf Selina's (plaintiff) not having written to him, and he intimated that if she was not sincere, they would "dissolve pltoge. tlier." In another letter still, he used the following ru rious language which we give verbatim et literatim:?'"I'm glad to huar that all tny old grass widows are well as I am. Ill was there I would try and alleviate their distress." In the samo letter he says "tell Patty t? behave herself and keep her mouth clean, and 1 will kiss her when I come back."

Mercury and white lead form the basis of many artificial pigments and cosmetics, but either will, from ita ponderosity, fall to the bottom, if made up in a liquid form, which can be easily detected? but if male up in the form of a powder, It must he analysed before it can be discovered?consequently, cosmetic powders are dangerous to use. Not so with the "Balm of Eden." It is not poisoned with any of these articles, but is so salubrious in its nature and beautifying in its ef feots, that, after a short time using, it improves the skin to perfection, rendering it white, smoeth and healthy. It is a sovereign remedy for freckles, tan, sun burn, red blotches, pimples, and other defects of the skin. The names ef some of the first class of physicians in this city, who are personal acquaintances of the lady who is the discoverer of the "Bnlm of Eden,"and who,having been made acquainted with it* ingredients, pronounce it perfectly harmless, and yet eficacious, may be seen at the store 857 Broadway, where the Balm is for sale at 60 cts. and $1 per bottle. We cannot refrain from giving an extract from a letter just received from a female friend in Philadelphia:? "Dear Madam?Many presents have been sent by you, but none have been more thankfully received than the hall dozen bottles of your delightful Balm. Vou are truly fortunate in producing sucli a combination of pure and harmless ingredients. It is of the nurest milky whiteness,and its effects are wonderful. Three bottles have proved amply sufficient to remove every defect you rpmemher to hnvp seen on the face of Marin I.nuina " The Hbove extract, written by one of the first ladies in Philadelphia, will prove how highly this Balm is appre. ciated by those who use it?and if further proof be need, ed, it can be had at 3S7 Broadway. {?-CONSUMPTION AND LIVER COMPLAINT CAN BE CURED.?Tse genuine Dr. Taylor's Balsam ol Liverwort, prepared onlv at the original office, No. 376 Bowery, hat shown conclusively that liver complaint, consumption, coughs, colds, asthma, spitting of blood, and all other diseases of the chest and lungs, can alone be cured by this vegetable medicine.

The position of our commercial relation! with China, offering m they do an opening for a more eitended inter, course, require! the prompt attention of some individual upon the spot, to look after American interesti. China and the Brazils offer an immense opening for the consumption of thoie lower qualities of cotton fabrici in which the United Statei can successfully compete with all other countries ; a fact lufficiently evident in tho late export of goodi to the English market. The abiUty of the United Statei to do thirhai been tho reiult of the low graae oi ine compromise act. It hag taught and compelled manufacturer* to work at rate* which put their ware* on a level with those of Gnglind in neutral market*. The approximation to free trade ha* built up th? manufacturer*; yet now, with a mole like blindness, they ar? destroying themselves by returning to a system of protection which is no less destructive to their interests than to the commercial and manufacturing interests.? Under the compromise act they have attained a positiou in which they can compcto with England in the Brazil and China markets. These two market* are the most important outlet* of British goods. With the Brazil* a treaty of commerce ha* existed on the part of Oreat Britain, which expires in 1844. All Europe ha* combined during the past year to exclude BritUh good* Irom the continent! by a system far more efficacious than that of Napalcon. It i* to underwork her. France has prohibited many article* of English production, and new on the eve of a new treaty between England and the Brazils, the influence of France at the latter court has become paramount by the intermarriage of tha reigning families.? The bearing which this will have upon the new treaty may easily be divined. Where is the United State* at this juncture? Is she looking after her intereit in that quarter? Is she endeavoring to make good use ef the ability of her manufacturer* to sell cheap, in order to supplant England altogether in that market, and open an outlet lor $26,000,000 of cotton good* for tha eastern manufacturers? Far from it. A miserable race of politicians are leading the manufacturers by tha nose, and endeavoring to persuade then that, by raising the tariff, keeping out Brazilian produce, and irritating its government at the very moment when conciliation i* molt requisite, their welfare is promoted. The inevitable result of such conduct will be, that England and the Vnited Statrs will be put in the same category, and the new regulations cf Brazil will discriminate in favor of France, depriving the manufacturers of a market worth at least $20,000,000 per annum. Thefarsical aiaemblage . of lawyers at Washington, called a Government, have appointed no Minister to look after this vital interest.? The hesitation is to discover how much strength the candidate can bring to "the party." The China trade i* equally urgent. England is on the spot with her cut-throats and robbers. They have counted and sent home the ready money that they have stolen,and are now making arrangementslo monopolize the future trade, while our agent yet linger* here.

Thiican now be done not only ai a means cf remittance, but as a profitable adventure.
