The intelligence which we sent to Europe, by the steamer to-day, is very interesting. 1st. The whole diplomatic correspondence be tween the American and British Ministers, upon the Oregon question. 2nd Intelligence from Washington, upon the best authority, that the negotiations which it was thought had been suspended, have been re-opened by Mr. Pukenham, upon new propositions of compromise. Sd. In the event ot any difficulty taking place with England upon this question, the probable ac tion of Congress upon the subject, and the proposi tion by Colonel Benton, of organizing *200,000 mili tia, in order to meet the important crisis, including also a suitable increase of our steam navy, fortifica tions, and naval armaments. 4th. The reopeningof negotiations between Mex i co and the United States, and the proposition for the purchase of California, with the probable expecta tion of a magnificent plan lor uniting both repub li a, so as to give peace to both, and to present an important front to all European governments. These things affect our foreign relations. In do mestic affairs, the prospect that a revenue tariff will be established by Congress, together with a specie currency system lor the government, as the best general plan to prevent inflations, give protection to all the interests ot the country, and enable it to meet and prevent all commercial explosions hereafter. Relation* Between the United State* *??<1 Mexico?Important Negotiation!. Avery important stage in the intercourse between the United States and Mexico, has now commenced. Mr. Polk, in his recent message, announced that the negotiation between the two countries, which had been interrupted by the annexation of Texas, and which was terminated by the abmpt departure of Mr Almonte last spring, has been renewed; and tha1 Mr Slidell, oi Louisiana, is sent to open fresh diplomatic intercourse, lor tlje purpose of settling the important questions in dispute between the two countries. This was official. Ot the nature of the new negotiations, we are enabled to gather some intimations brought by recent arrivals in various ways from Vera Cruz via Havana, Pensncola, New Orleans and Washington. By those accounts we learn that proiaisitions have been informally placed before the Mexican Govern ment by an agent of the. L nited States, proposing the Rio Grande del Norte as the boundary between the two countries, end also embracing a proposition to purchase New California, as lar south as the Gila river, at the head of the Gulf of California. It is further stated that a sum varying from five to ten or p' lhbps twenty millions of dollars, has been named to be paid by the United States by way ol indemnity for those new countries, and the fresh boundaries be.t ween Mexico and the United States. This information comes in such a shape and in ?Jch Various ways, that we are constrained to Kive it belief and faith. It U highly probable that the , resent Government of Mexico, after seeing the du plicity and folly practised towards them by the ?aents of France and England, on the Texas ques tion, and believing that there was more honor and in teerity in the United States than in European Govern ments, came at last to the conclusion to offer no oppo sition to the annexation of Texas; and signi fied its wish to resume diplomatic intercourse between the two countries, as soon as possible This intimation probably was conveyed to our government by the American Consul at \ era Cruz, embracing also an invitation for the United States to send a new minister to Mexico. Allusions have also been made to certain debates in the Mexican Congress, and certain violent attacks made by the military factions in Mexico against the government of President Herrera, in consequence of listening to such propositions on the part of the United States. By this time our new minister, Mr. Slidell, has ar rived in Mexico, and no doubt some considerable progress is made in the negotiations. He will pro b bly meet with opposition from the British and French ministers in that republic, but the good sense of the government, and the necessity of the case, are ali i n favor of the new proposition before the Mexican Congress, for the settlement of all differ ences between the two countries. This is but another step, however, in the great progress of events in reference to the movements of Repub'ican Government, in this hemisphere, which has commenced, and no one can tell where it will terminate. Instead of a negotiation for the settlement of the boundary line of Texas by the Rio Grande, or the requisition ot California, we believe a project u on foot for the purj>o?e of uniting the two Republic*, and for lite annexation of Mexico loth* United State*, or of the United Statet to Mexico, a* you please to exprat it, and thut predentin* to the leorld a Repub lic unequalled, even in the imagination* of vision aries of past timet, or of the present age. There is nothing to prevent the union of the two republics on the same principle by which Florida, Louisiana, and now Texas and Oregon, will be edded to this republic. In every point of view it would be a happy and fortunate thing for the Mexican States to have a stable government in that beautiful region, and to put an end to the long aeries ol revolts, insurrections and revolutions, which have characterised thit country for the last thirty years The union could be effected immedi ately by authorizing the Mexican Stales to elect re presentatives in proi>ortion to the population, on the name basis as exists in this country, by the last cen sus. The diversity ot religion and language is not nu insurmountable objection to such a project. We a e in this republic, Catholics and Protestants, all uniting to carry out our glorious destiny as a nation, and ilte same results would be apparent if Mexico formed an integral i*rt of our Union. Iu all re sects, physically, commercially, and politically,such n union would be a benefit to both countries A republic of such a description embracing the United St ites and Mexico, would comprehend all the great v .Id and silver mines of the world, the greatest cot '"n growing country, the greatest wheat growing t'i 'tstry, m faci, possessing a monopoly of every thing Uidt is valuable and rich on the face of the ?? irth Thf population of the two countries would then amount to thirty tnllions, and the number ot voters would be about five millions We have ex i- ed iri this republic tor nearly two-thirds ot a c< ntury, under a state ol noveriimfnt preserving ]i e, mid liberty, and property, tar beyond any thing tb military governments of Europe can show The ii >v r? public, formed by the union ot the United Suites and Mexico, would present the Mine tea iur<., iml ".ive to the Mexican Wtai^i> soin?- pto ol th.i' happine-M which they never yet have hi - .Mid which the tmnulrs and revolutions ol the |,i j juisliuve shown they r.iver can l?s Bess, without the infusion of some powerful ele ment of civilization into their government. That element must come fr?ni the grand reservoir of J Anglo-Saxon energy and stability. Such is the plan which is now forming for the , union of the United States and Mexico. It em braces, in magnitude, mighty results, and will be the cause of making great changes in the old world and in the new. We have much to say on tins subject hereafter, j and will recur to it agiin. We were the first, ten ! years ngo, to propose the annexation of Texas, the i acquisition of California, and the adoption by the i government of a system of finance which has re- 1 ccntly been recommended by the Executive; and the success which attended all those great measure? is greater than we anticipated when we first broached them. The people in this country are intellectual beings, and nothing can retard their progress to wards that great and mighty destiny, which it is ordained they shall attain. Increase ok ouk Stkam Navy.?In the present j condition of our foreign relations, no one can tell how soon negotiations may take such a turn as will involve war, however much we be opposed to it. In the event of such an occurrence taking place, how entirely inefficient would our present navy be to compete successfully with that of Great Britain ! The British appear to have taken all possible advan tage ol the success which has attended ocean steam ship navigation, and have added a great many wur steamers to their navy, besides merchant steam ships which could at any moment be converted into formidable vessels of war, while our government has almost neglected to avail itself of that formida ble engine ol recent discovery. Even if our foreign relations were of the most pacific kind, the best way to keep them so, would be to be well prepared to re sist any attempt at hostility by foreign powers. The Oregon question will, we have no doubt, be settled without resort to the ultimatum of nations; but sooner or later that tremendous conflict between the old world and the new, and which will shake the world to its centre, will take place. The old European dynasties are eyeing with jealousy the j gigantic strides of this country to unparalleled great ness?a greatness which Rome, in the height of her splendor, never dreamt of,?and they see and feel the influence of our republican institutions on their rotten and decaying monarchies They know and feel that every progressive step which we make in any element of national greatness, acts as a retro gressive step to them, hastening their destined downfall. They are not unmindful of the fact, that from all appearances we are in a fair way to swallow them up, and that sooner or later,they will be obliged by the instinct of self-preservation, to make a j bold, determined, and united effort to crush these United States, and with them, the hopes of the pa triot and philanthropist all over the world. Every i day the sun ol heaven shines upon us brings a day nearer that dreadful crisis. By the result of that conflict will be decided for thousands of years the fate of republics and of monarchies, in this and in the old world; and in the result of that conflict the great experiment, that man is capable of self-govern ment, will succeed or be forever abandoned as a chime ra. No person of judgment can doubt what the issue will be it we be but prepared for it Hence, then^ we imagine the necessity there is of our maintaining our position on the eeas, for it will be principally by naval warfare that the conflict will be contested. We see France and England adding yearly to their already powerful navies, while the U nited States, in national and commercial consequence, is inferior to but one country in the world, has a navy only equal to some of the fourth or fifth rate powers. 4 In addition to this, our commerce requires protec tion. While we were in our infancy, our commerce was small and did not require much protection; but we now are the second commercial nation on the globe, and our navy should increase in the same ra tio as our commerce, and give full and ample pro tection to it, in every sea and ocean that it frequents. To do this effectually, would require a larae increase in our navy depaitment. We arc glad to find that . the President is fully sensible of the importance of this subject, and has recommended it to the consi deration of Congress, who, we hope and trust, will make some legislation upon it. That an increase of our navy, and particularly of our steam navy, is called for, both by the condi tion of our foreign relations, and by the demands of our commerce to be protected, no sane man will dispute. The only question existing, is the manner in which that increase shall be made. With all due deference, we will point out what we conceive would be well calculated for this pur pose. Some of our New York ship owners propos ed to the Tyler government to build a number of steam ships, or packets, to trade between the several ports of the United States and those of foreign countries, provided the government would confer upon them the same rights and privileges that the British government has conferred upen the Cunard and other lines of steam ships owned in England.? These vessels were to be constructed in such a man ner that they could, in twenty-four hours, be con *^rted into steam ships of war, and for model, workmanship and swiftness in sailing, equal to any of our splendid packet ships ; and, likewise, that in the event of the United States engaging in foreign war, these vessels were to become the pro|*rty of the government at a fair and reasonable price. Tins faverable proposition was not noticed by Mr. Tyler?having his hands full of [>etty business, such as intriguing for the successioK, and supplying offices to his minions, and other contemptible busi ness, he' had no time to devote to the attention of this important matter. But now that we have an administration in power tnat is above such small potato aflurs as intriguing for the succession, Arc , which disgraced Mr. Tyler, we hope that the pro position will be renewed, for there is no doubt but Mr. Polk will make leisure time to give it the at tention it is entitled to If this plan were adopted, we have no d jubt that in an incredibly short space of time, we would have an addition to our navy of twenty or thirty steam war vessels, capable, when manned by our sturdy taw, of contending success fully with any vessels of the same or greater calibre, of any nation in the world. Another ini|>ortant feature connected with the es tablishment of these vessels, would be, that in time of l>eace, they would be a regular mail and passenger line between the United States and distant coun tries The revenue which would be derived from them, in this way, would reduce the expense of keeping them, in times of peace, almost to nothing. Cask of William Rt'Ffs Elliott ?OrTRA'm won Law ?This young blood, who has been imprisoned since last August on a charge of homicide, tor kill ing WUIiam Z Kendall, has, we see, been set at liberty, in consequence of the grand jury ignoring the bill of indictment. This is an insult npon the common sense and decency of the community. That a man should be shot down in broad daylight, in the capital of our country, and his murderer be discharged without a trial, on the miserable ground of ttlf-dtfenct, argues, to say the least, a very low estimate of human life Elliott should have been a' least tried for manslaughter St;?-TREASf*Y and U. S Mint.?We learn that the government is neuotiating for the lot of land oc oupted by Grace Church, at the corner of Broadway aud Rector street, and have oflered an advance of #10,0(10 on the cost to the present owners of it, for the purpose of erecting a magnificent building, to be used as u Mint of the United States, and for the de posit of the government funds, if the Sub-Treasury lull passes Tiiavki. in bi Rom ?The line packet ship* New York, Capt Cropjier, for l,iveri>ool, and Zurich, <';ipt Thompson, for Havre, will sail to-day The ??l>|en?fwf |>ackei lup Liverpool, Capl.

There ia very little doubt in the minds of many, but that there ia more or less smuggling of foreign goods into this port throughout e/ery year. It ia true that eti'orta.4?ve been made to prevent it, but the great profits of thia sort of " trade," are the great induce ments to the recklessness displayed in its pursuit. It has been in contemplation with several public men, to organize our old New York pilots into a sort of Kuarda rati a?make them sworn Custom house officers?in the hope, in this way, to prevent a vast deal of the illicit trade that is now said to be carried on. It is a well known fact that our pilots have been the means of saving considerable re venue to the government, in exposing smuggling; and it they, as a body, with their clipper schooners constantly on the watch, could be organized by Con gress, into one association, and constituted officers of the customs, while in charge of ships arriving here, a stop would be put to a great deal of this ras cality. In order to effectually do thia, however, care must be exercised in the incipient arrangements. The business of the pilotage of this port is now thrown open to the world. Any person can hire a boat, cruize off Sandy Hook, and act the pilot. This freedom in the business is, of course, reckless and hazardous to all vessels bound in or out of the har bor. It is also directly opposed to any idea of making those now engaged as pilots, otlicers of the customs, to detect smuggling. If the system, now in view, is to be carried into effect, the pilots must first be known as good and true men. This cannot be while the business of pilotage is open to Tom, the smuggler, and Dick, his brother. Indeed, the pilot himself may be the greatest smuggler; but, with a complete reorganization by Congress of the pilot system; throwing out the bad, and keeping the good men; and by hav ing it properly arranged, with a healthy and safe competition from the natural increase of pilots, the government could make sworn officers of an en terprising set of men, to act while in charge of ves sels, to detect smugglers and smuggling, and to pre vent, perhaps entirely, all illicit trade at this or any other port. Such a plan as this is much needed. All honest importers will see its necessity; and facts, in the possession of the government, clearly exhibit its excellence and feasibility. It is to be, therefore, hoped that Congress will take hold of the matter at once, and see if something of the kind cannot be done. Ten or a dozen clipper pilot boats, constantly cruising and acting as revenue cutters, would ularm smugglers out of their impropriety in a very short time. Theatrical Missions to Eitrope?We under stand that W. Niblo, Esq., the energetic proprietor of the theatre and garden of that name, sails for Eu rope to day in th) Cambria, for the purpose of collecting a corps ot theatrical talent in Europe. Should he succeed in making the engagements he contemplates with the first stars of the European boards, it is expected he will be back before spring, in time to open the season with his new acquisi tions. There are several names which fame has already wafted across the Atlantic, which we have tor some time been on the tiptoe to see and hear in New York* Among the most distinguished of these may be mentioned Carlotti Grisi, Cento, Tag lioni, Mile. Rachel, and Jenny Lind. Some of these famous artiste*, each one a brilliant star in her own particular sphere, we may expect will be brought out early in the spring, by our enterprising fellow, citizen, Mr. Niblo, if he can. We wish him success in his expedition, and congratulate our city on the prospect ot such a brilliant addition to its sources of legitimate and rational entertainment. Cento would have the greatest run in this country, of any one that ever crossed the dark blue waters. Among the passengers who leave to-day, for Liverpool, in the packet ship " New York," are Messrs. Germon, Stanwood, Harrington, Pelham and White, the original Ethiopian Serenaders, who proceed to Europe under the direction ot Mr. James A Dumbolton, upon a professional tour, through France, England, icc Tempt.rton's Grand Muhiraj. Festival, for the Benefit of the Poor.?We understand that. Mr. Templeton, who has been 30 successful in this and other cities, intends, at an early day, to give a concert for t..e benefit of the different charitable in stitutions of this city. The plan of procedure is to be this:?After paying all necessary expenses, th< remainder of the proceeds will be handed over to his Honor the Mayor, who is to distribute them according to his knowledge, among the charitable institutions. This will be one of the most magnificent acts of charity ever given by any artiste in this city. The Tabernacle is to be used tor the concert, and it will probably be filled by our musical, religious, and cha ritable citizens. The tickets, we suppose, will be raised to a dollar, and probably, after paying ex penses, no less than four thousand dollars will be handed over to our worthy Mayor. Such an act will be peculiarly acceptable to the poor of this city, at the commencement of an inclement winter, and it will reflect the highest credit on Templeton, the "prince of tenors." On a similar occasion to the one now proposed, during his career in England, the divine Malibran, then aiive, said to him--"Tempe, you are a much splendid fellow?when you do anything good, you do it very good." So he does. News pksm Nassau, N.P.?We have received the Nassau Gazette to the 29th ult. inclusive. The two branches of the Colonial Legislature were to be summoned on the 3d inst. for business. The Gazette says ?' No doubt thin oarly meeting ol tho two branched is called more particularly to the several enactments v. hich hnve been disallowed by her Majesty in Council, or probably from despatches received, instructing the Governor to draw their early atten ion to other matters of consequence, which may be of future benefit to the colony generally.

The boundariei of fashion extend from Bleecker street on the south. to the pig *tyes of New Dublin on the north, anil from Hudson street on the west, to the Kirst avenue on the oa?t. Within t' ese limit., all that is elegant, refined, nnd nehrrch, may be found. Cottly and magnificent palace* have been erected, andothors are now rising in justness and beauty of proportion, like the (airy creation, of Alladin's ljmp, to charm the imagination and enchant the taste. Substantial and elegaut pig styes have also been eroded in New Dublin, whieh present to the eye of the fastidious and refined citizen, a peculiarly interesting and picturesque appearance, to say nothing of the fragrance emitted, not absolutely Arabiau. New Dublin may be considered a* the Siberia of the realms of fashion, which, we think, ought to be "fenced in," in order that the aristocracy may find a secure and safe re luge from tallow chandlers, bakers, tailors, butchers, oil men, grocers, pork caters, tin pan and kottle dealers, as well as thoir own old and vulgar associations?which they would fain banish to Hades.

A novel curi ou*. and unlocked lor question has arisen, which threa nnTahl/hT V* of th? f"hionable world andI which may dinithe lustre of the season, now com' tnenced under such favorable auspices.

But how strange that the German population of our city should be so scarce ! There were but few of them to be seen in the boxes. We beared it whispered that thev were too poor. Wo deny the libellous impeach ment, and hope they will stand by us and support our assertion, and prove that America has been a land ot promise to them, and that they are willing to help to make it such also to others I at one and all, follow the example o? the free and ?' nerons Americans, and .how that they not only can ac quire and scrapo together, but are also able to dispense liberally where there i. genius and merit to {>e en T/i? ?? 6 under?tand the company will next brin* out Don Giovanmi," and we think they will do so with Bv th!TL6?fC.t Ce? 88 the? have done tho Frowchutz.

Three vears ago it was put and then consisted of five upright posts, and about a zeu boards, clumsily nuiled crosswise on the posts, a few months afterwards, four of the top boards g< way, and were blown down by the wind.

A Wise Corporation?Dark Streets.?The strs I on Sunday night were dark as Krebu*, and yet the was not a single lamp lighted all over the city. C citizens were therefore obliged to grope their w through mud and water, with no light to guide them their dangerous path. On enquiring into the cause this, we learned that because it was set down in t Almanac that there would be a moon that evenii therefore the wiseacres of the Corporation thought the would be no necessity of having extra light. But fri some cause or other, the moon aid not make her appe ance, and therefore the streets were left perfectly da This is a curious way of doing business. On clear st lit nights, when there is no moon, we can see very vf in the streets, yet thon the Corporation give us soi light; but on cloudy and rainy evenings, when if it? fair weather, there would be a moon visible, whei light i* the most necessary, then we do not have w This matter of lighting the streets needs reformi altogether.
