NEW YORK HERALD. New York, Thurday, Jane 4, 1N46. Ntwt from tti? Klo Urande. There appear* to be no little anxiety In the community .to receive later intelligence from the war quarter. We are very deiiroui to ascertain the late of Matamoraa. If any thing of importance in received thia morning from the Rio UnuiiU. it will t>o given man Kim* Hsa*i.u. The War and oar i'ortlgn Relation*. Theotfieial paper of the government at Wash .ngton states that the war with Mexico will be prosecuted on the broadest and widest scale, up to the very " Hails of the Montezumas," until Mexico shall be brought to terms. We are very ^lad ti> hear this ; but judging from the past vati ? -muiicns of the organ, we have no great faith in .t- accuracy as the exponent of the Executive.? During the last eighteen months, in nearly one half of the important movements of the govern ment, it has misrepresented, falsified, deceived, cheated, and humbugged the country. Whether this deception grew out ol design or ignorance, we cannot tell, but the result on the public mind was thi! same. But if we have no faith in the statements or pre diction* of the organ, we placo some confidence in the common sense of the President and the Cabinet, They must see the necessity of prose cuting this war With spirit and energy, until it is brought to a successful and early termination. What we waul of Mexico is very simple, indeed? payment for her lawless spoliations of the past, security for the future, and also a new boundary line between the two republics. The war must be prosecuted until these arc eoeured, and if nothing else than a revolution in Mexico will effect the*e measures, let that be done. In the present state of the question, we ought to insist upon taking possession of, and keeping Upper Culilornia, and certain portions of New Mexico, as a guaranty that the terms and agreement into which the gov ernment of Mexico may enter, will be faithfully kept and accomplished. Unless these views animate the President and the administration, tliey will soon get into one of the most uncomfortable dilemmas and complica tion of difficulties that ever men were in. Any quarrels or disputes between the President and Gen. Scatt will not be tolerated;^ any delay in call ing the whole foree of fifty thousand men into the field at once, will be equally less tolerated. 11 nless the war be prosecuted with determination and energy, we may have France and England on our backs. And the complication of our foreign relations mny be such as to throw the President and his Cabinet on their beam ends and put the country into an awkward predica ment. We are beginning to have a reputation in England and throughout the civilized world, and that reputation must be supported by land and by sea, and in every department of the government. Lord John Russell calls the United States "one of the greatest nations of the globe." Let us not forget that. Temflkton's Concerts.?Mr. Templeton, the vocaljst, resumes his concerts for the season at the Tabernacle this evenitig. He is prepared with an entirely new entertainment, called his " Remi niscences of the Grand Opera." The first por tion of this entertainment will be given to-night, comprising a " Lecture on incidents connected with the Italian Opera in England," with a num ber of " gems" connected with this?in which Templeton bore a most distinguished part, during his operatic career. It will be recollected that Mr. Templeton, during the celebrated career of Ma dame Malibran, in England, was the principal tenor which sustained her, while she created such enthusiasm among the musical and fashionable people of England. These entertainments will embrace, in the course, these gems, in which he sung with Malibran. Mr. Templeton has taken the Tabernacle, the most extensive public building in the city, to sa tisfy those who wish to hear him. His opening here is quite an event in the musical world ; and in other respects, is important and interesting to the public. There has been an attempt recently made by certain persons, of the disreputable portion of the newspaper press in this city, to put down Mr. Templeton, to destroy his reputation, both private and professional?break up his con certs, and create a riot, if possible. The cuuse assigned for this attempt is the most worthless and mercenary that enn be imagined ; it is sim ply because Mr. Templeton managed his own bu siness, in his own way, and resisted all exorbitant exactions for pufTs, from thoso connected with the disreputable portion of the press in this city. Mr. Templ?ton has given no offence to the pub he?he stands well with them. But the disrepu table portion of the press, who want to levy mo ney and get a living out of public characters, wish to step in between him and the public, to satisfy their own malevolence and spleen. Whether such a purpose will succeed, the issue, to-night, will tell. In the meantime, we understand that the police will have a strong force to protect Mr. Templeton and his audience in their rights. Any person attempting to disturb the audience, is lia ble to be arrested and lodged in the watch-house; and we have no doubt that it will be done, on the manifestntion of the slightest disturbance or rest. Those who dislike Mr. Templeton, and have no relish for his beautiful mi^iie, can stay away. Those who have a relish for his talents and musi cal abilities, by paying fifty cents, and going to the Tabernacle, have a right to hear the vocalist un disturbed, and should not be intimidated by any mercenary gangs. Apropot, on this subject; there is in an obscure morning paper, of no circulation and less character, an intimation, that what we have said in relation to Templeton, has been pur chased as an advertisement. This is a pare false hood and calumny. Everything winch has ap peared in these columns, of Templeton, in the way of theatrical or editorial notice, has been voluntary, and no charge has been or will be made by us, and no offer made by him. All inti mations to the contrary are utter falsehoods. If Mr. Templeton be put down, then it will estab lish, on a popular basis, the legitimacy and justice of the black-mail system, so much talked about ia Connection with the New York press. Let us have a decision either one way or the other, and we shall be perfecdy satisfied. VoMiNTKR*?The army of fifty thousand now mustering into the serv e- of the United .States throughout the country, preparatory to the inva sion of Mexico, wi II form an army of invasion dif ferent from any that has yet been seen in the world. This great body of men w,11 be composed of the host animated, energetic, and enterprising sur plu. population of the country. They are abou, going on an expedition to Mexico, for the pnrpoea of bringing that unfortunate country into a re spectable condition, and it is probable that after that shall have been accomplished, most of them anil remain and settle in the Northern States of Mexico, establish themselves, and then' send for 'heir families from the United States. They will m the advanced guard of a mighty emigration, that will lieroafler renew the spirit and common sense of the people. fiat Cowtiar SysTXj*.?What is the rcuoti hat Congress doe* not take up the consular sys tem ri{ the I nited States, and amend it so as to pot this important branch of the public serviec in some respectable posit,on in the several countries to which our consuls are sent t The consuls com pos* one of the most important branches of the government, more important and more practical than the diplomatic rorft. Yet they have been almost altogether overlooked. The whole ?y*t<,m should be re-organired, and every American Con sul should be allowed a respectable salary, so as to make him a respectable agent dt hit county. ?? -j- ? ? ju MfltM CaflW* Of BtateMaait Theia Is little doubt that the next newt from the seat of war will bring 4e intelligence of the fell of Matamoras into the hands of our army. Our last advices are up to the 19th ult. from Point Isabel. The combined attack of the army and a detach' nient from the fleet, on Matamoras, which was in contemplation, had been delayed in consequence of the inclemency of the weather. On the 18th Gen. Taylor was to have crossed the Rio Grande, Ave miles above Matamoras, U(ith a view to tho investment of that city; and, from the fact that some cannonading was heard in that direction at Point Isabel, on the morning of that day, it is be lieved that he effected his purpose. Fifteen hun dred volunteers, newly arrived, under command of Gen. Smith, had marched from Point Isabel to the nearest point of the river, which they were to cross, and take up their position Ave or six miles below Matamoras. Lieutenant Colonel Wilson, with a force of 400 men, had entered La Barita, a village about twenty miles from Mata moras, on the Mexican side of the river. His force consisted of four companies of 1st U. S. Infantry, Col. Desha's Mobile Volunteers, and two companies of the Washington Regiment of Louisiana Volunteers. They had crossed the river at its mouth. They were to have been joined by a detachment of sailors and marines, from the U. S. fleet, but the junction was not effected, owing to the delay occasioned by the bad weath er. Thus we see that at three several points our forces are concentrating on the Mexican border; at Matamoras, at Barita, and between the two last named places, at the principal bend ef the river. We presume that the landing of the troops at this last point is but for the purpose of forming a junction with Gen. Taylor, and concentrating a larger force on Matamoras. The fleet had left their anchorage off Point Isabel, and bad come to, off the mouth of the Rio Grande. The squad ron consisted of the frigates Cumberland, Rari tan, Potomac, steam frigate Mississippi, sloop St. Mary's, and the brigs Somers and Lawrence.? The map on the outside will explain at a glance the entire plan of operations. Death of Gansevoort Melvili.k, Esq.?We regret to record the death of Gansevoort Melville, the Secretary of the American Legation in Lon don. Mr. Melville was thought a great deal of by his family and his friends in this city, where he was well known and much esteemed. He was a young man of great promise and remarkable ge nius. He possessed high oratorical powers. Dur ing the campaign that resulted in the election of Mr. Polk, he travelled hundreds of miles over the country, delivering speeches to the people. He was a young man of elevated sentiment, fine edu cation, and will be deeply regretted by all those who knew him. He belonged to a family of ge nius. He has left two brothers who are now in this city, one of whom, Herman Melville, is the author of an extraordinary book called " Typee," giving an account of his adventures in the South Seas, and almost equal in interest to the celebrated Robinson Crusoe. The vacancy occasioned by the decease of Mr. Melville will, no doubt, be soon filledj and when the death of Mr. Melville is known, no less than fifty applicants will be on their way to the Presi dent to pester him for the office. Among the ap plicants, N. P. Willis will be one, for we under stand he has been trying to get an office of the kind for some time past, and has a batch of recommend ations on hand. We hope the President will take Mr. Willis's application into consideration, and if possible give the place to liim, so as to end his as pirations, and satisfy him for once in his life. We owe no particular favors to Mr. Willis, for even while we were serving him, he has shown a great deal of meanness towards us on many occasions in his literary and newspaper career. Yet we can afford to be magnanimous, and we recommend him to the attention of the President. Tiuc Rank and File or the American Arm v.? Why docs Congress not do something besides ten dering thanks to the army on the Rio Grande ? They have showered hatatull of thanks on the army,which is right and proper. General Taylor is a brave, upright, and patriotic officer, but it must be recollected that he could not have accom plished the glorious victories over the Mexicans, without the assistance of the rank and file of the army. These men supported their officers and their country in the campaign, and each one of them is entiUed to a portion of the praise, be sides something more substantial. We hope Congress will take this into consideration at once. Hattien News.?The Hayti, Capt. Morse, ar rived yesterday from Port Republican in fifteen days' passage. All was apparently quiet; the new President, Richl, was popular. Aggression on the High Seas?Funny Inci dent, and Yankee Pluck.?We learn that the schooner Catharine, Capt. Scott, arrived yesterday from St. Jago de Cuba, met with a strange inci dent on her voyage hither. It resulted favorably to the American character, and exhibits a small slice of the same spirit that was recently mani fested on the Rio Grande. The particulars of the affair are as follows* On the morning of tailing from 8L Jago, and within gunshot of the Mora Castle, the schooner Catharine waa met by the French war steamer Tormarre, from 8t. Do mingo, bound in ; she passed at flrst considerably out of hailing distance, and not much nearer than she waa to half awien other vessels which had come oat in oem P A$tar she had ma in about a mile and received a pilot, close to the shore, she was observed to back round and manoeuvre some time, and at intervals ft red two guns ; she then stood for the C., cam* near, and hailed in the following words: " You d d rascal, heist your flag." The answer was that orders given in such insulting lan guage would not be obeyed. Other abusive phrases fol lowed, and threats were repeatedly made te Are late her unleas it was immediately done. The boat, with a lieutenant, was twice sent on board, with a message that, unless the schooner aet her flag, all the force at the steamer's oomanand would be used to make her do it; that her commander had the power to send the schooner to the bottom, and that he would do it To all of which the same answer was retained, the se cond tine in writing, as follows :? " To the oomnmier of the French war steamer Tea nerre : " 8m?At the ft ret salutation you called me 1 a d 4 rascal." U ntil yon apologise for each insulting lane usee, I will not hoist my flag. Beepectfully, "ANDREW SCOTT, " Master of schooner Catharine, of New York. " Off the Mora, St Jago de Cuba, 19 May, 1844." About an hour was thus passed, during which time the steamer was laid across the schooner's bows and clumsi ly got foul, dolag herself some damage ; her commander insisting on an unconditional obedience, and the ofllcers and crew of the Catharine upholding their captain in his decision. The wind was very light from the eastward; the schooner was kept on her course, going one or two knots and the crew continued their work of washing decks, which they had been engaged in. At last, alter some words of conciliation on both sides, the apology was offered and the salutation made. The language at first used by the captain of the steam er was brakeifEnglieh , afterwards the conversation with the lieutenant and with him was in French. After the C. had posse d the Move, her flag had been healed down, so thai the gaflrtopeetl might be aet, which it iaterforred with. This was done about twenty minutes before the steam er came up?but ae sack nor any eiptenetion was given, only the iateatioa of iwaiting his flag, which her captain charged, was denied. Excepting a Spanish schooner, no other reseel in sight had her fleg set The stsaisr's manosuvres and guns were supposed te be signals of communication with the shore, and con Id not be understood as meant for the schoeaer, and when she came neer it was thought she wanted to put letters en board, or aek for seise information. We refer the above to the conaideration of the editors in Canada. TM A AIVIe At a meeting held ea Taasday evening, Jane ad, at Bonaard s.

The Actual wealth realiz#tftn Hexico, of British India, has been greatly exaggerated. There is no doubt (hat the mineral resources are vast and almost inexhaustible. But the natural indolence of the people, the want of sufficient en terprise,and the internal distention* that have long distracted that country, have pr^ented the mines from being worked to advantage. Besides ihis,the mines mostly exist in the table lands of the nor ! them departments, and the working of them re quires a great deal of time, labor, and expense. The most enterprising merchants and capitalists reside in the south, and thus a vast source of protit is allowed to remain barren and uriprofit I able. I At the time that Cortes landed in Mexico, the people were well acquainted with the mineral treasures of the country. The mines of Tazco af | forded silver, lead and tin, and copper was found in the mountains of Zacotoilan. The natives worked those mines with skill nnd enterprise.? Gold was found in the beds of the mountain tor rents, in the neighborhood of Tchuantipec The use of iron was unknown to them, and even to this day the iron mines are not worked to any ex tent, although the mountainous districts of nor thern Mexico abound with iron ore. Instead of , iron the Mexicans, at the time of the conquest, used a sort of bronze, compounded of tin and cop per. Tbc finer tools were made of a mineral call ed istli or obsidian, which was abundant in the hilly country. The department of San Louis Po tosi, and the neighborhood of Gru&uahuato, were at that time most famous for gold mines. Quar ries of porphyry and of emerald were work ed extensively, and with their bronze tool*, made of an alloy of tin and copper, they had no difficulty in cutting the hardest minorals. This is not to be wondered at, when we consider tliut the Egyp ! tians of old were unacquainted with the use of ! iron, although they have left many beautiful spe cimens of sculpture, both in metal and mnrble. There are very few veins of gold ore as yet dis covered in Mexico, althou gh from the quantity found formerly in the beds of the streamy there is no doubt that extensive gold mines exist. A few have been discovered in the neighborhood of the rich valley of Oaxaca, formed by the south eastern slope of the Cordilleras. The principal portion of the gold is found in combination with silver. The ores of Guanahuato afford the larg est proportion of gold?three penny-weights of gold to one mark of silver. The gross produce of the mines of Mexico from 1690 to 1808, is estimat ed at $1,358,462,020, averaging about $12,000,000 per annum. The highest amount, which was in the year 1796, was #25,64-1,566. Since that time it lias averaged about #22,000,000. The profits of th? Guanahuato Mine* for last Fab. amounted to about $569 00 Bolano Minsa 404 00 Rio del Moat* 7,613 00 The expenditures of the Pachucar Mines ex ceeded the profits. Tin,lead, iron and copper abound in vast quantities under the surface in northern Mexico, and it requires but enterprise and capital, and a security for property and person, to work the mines to great advantage. During the century alter the conquest, gold was found in abundance in the mines of Tchuantipec and silver inZacatecas.In 1801,there were upwards of 8000 mines of all minerals in Mexico, and many have since been diyovered. In the time of Cortes, tin was used for money in the province of Taxco, and it was with great difficulty he could at first procure sufficient to mix with copper, for the purpose of founding cannon. Since that time, however, it has been found in great abun dance. Not one fiftieth of the mines of Mexico are worked at present. This is owing partly to the fluctuations in property caused by the num berless revolutions that have occurred within the last thirty years, and partly to tho monopoly by aie or tlie quicksilver minesofSpain. There is no doubt that at the time Humboldt visited the country in 18M, the wealth of the landed proprietors was great, and that there was more than a fair prospect of lucrative returns for mining investments. Accordingly, a sort o mania seized the English capitalists, similar to the South Sea mania. Mining companies were im mediately formed, and the stock* rose to a high premium. The capital of tho English company that owned the immense mine at JUal del Monte was four hundred thousand pounds starling. In 1824 this, stock attained a premium of fourteen hundred pounds per share. In two years, the value of a share had sunk from this enormous ad vance to an actual discount. The shaft of the mine is one thousand feet deep, and the company that now owns it have, within the last few years, expended several millions of dollars in its ma chinery and other requirements. The English in vestments in Mexican mines are at present very large. In 182B they were estimated at twelve millions sterling. There is no doubt that the mines are at first more expensive than productive, as they require a vast amount of capital for ma chinery, he.; but still they must eventually prove a source of vast wealth to those who employ their investments in energetic operations. The most successfully worked gold mine in New Mexico is that of El Real de Dolores, or El Placer, as it is more commonly called, situated in a spur ol mountains, miles Irom the capital. It was discovered, accidentally, in 1828, by a goat herd. The entire aggregate yield, since its first discovery, has exceeded half a million of dollars. Besides El Placer, other smaller mines of gold have been since discovered in the same ledge of mountains towards the south. Plactre? have also been discovered in the hills of Abigui^r, Taos, nnd other places. For the last century no silver mines have been in successful operation in New Mexico. But copper, seine, and lead are profit ably worked. But, notwithstanding the vast mineral wealth of Mexico, there is no reason to anticipate success ful returns from mining investments until the peace of the country is permanently restored. Of late years, English, Spanish, French, and Ameri can capitalists have embarked vast fortunes in the mines of Mexico, and the stocks of these compa nies have been for ever fluctuating, in conse quence of the unsteadiness of the domestic af fairs of the country. Mexican oapitalists, too, have lost their large investments in consequence of the unsettled state of the country. Every de magogue who could command sufficient money to buy the services of five hundred ranekerot, or bandits, would forthwith issue * frtmunciamento, march upon the capital, with the blasphemous incription of " God and Liberty" on his banner, overturn the existing weak and inefficient govern ment, and then trample on'thc liberties and squan der the properties of the people. Mexican, Ame rican, and European capital is thus continually at the mercy of a rabble, and their interests may at any moment be-as they have often been?wan tonly sacrificed. But the end ef this military despotism is ap proaching. Not content with issuing /nrenuneia mentot, and waging war on each other, the fac tions and unprincipled rulers of Mexico have | lately made war upon the United States, and it is now evidently the duty, as it is providentially, perhaps, the province of our government, to in flict summary chastisement upon those factious demagogues who sacrifice the best interests of their country to their own inordinate Inst of power. We say providentially the province of our government, for there is little doubt that if it had fallen to the lot of either England or Franco to restore peace to the distracted nation of Mex ico, that rich and fertile country wwid, in all pro bability, have been Punjattbed, "to pay ex penses." Let our government follow up the blow al ready struck, by freeing the people of Mexico from the yoke of thnr preterit unpnnupiffi rulers, and, leaving them free to act for dyfrm salve*, secure to them the blessings of a free con stitution. This it is the destiny and the duty ot the United States to effect, and, by bringing about this happy consummation, our Government will conier an inestimable favor on tlioee countries whose enterprising capitalists have embarked their fortunes in the mines of Mexico. Theatrical and Musical. Park.?Last evening Mr. and Mrs. Kean appeared in " Richard III." before a very fall and fashionable audi ence. Of the beauty and magnificence of the stage ap pointments, the splendor of the costumes, and the taste displayed in producing this glorious play with the utmost historic truthfulness, we have >o often spoken, that it is quite needless to dilate upon them at present. We do not believe that the plav has ever been produced better than at the Park, and both Mr. and Mrs. Keen and the manage ment deserve the greatest credit for the way it is put on the stage. We certainly think that Mr. Kean's fame will rest on nia Oloeter. It is evidenUy his master-piece. We saw him ten years ago in " Sir Giles Overreach,'' and we thought than that that was a more mutterly performance than his " Richard." But we are inclined to think that he has since bestowed more pains an the latter character. We should like to judge, by saving his Sir Giles Overreach again.? The part or Queen Eliiabethis comparatively quiet, but Mrs. Kean gives to it tone and character, and made it striking and effective. Mr. Dyett'a Richmond was, as nsual. conceived with good taste and well acted. Mr. Bland'9 Buckingham waa one of his best parts. Miss Crocker, as the rrinoe, was rery graceful and effective. We are glad to peseelve that she Is correcting the fault that we some time since remarked in her intonation. To night Mrs. Kean appears in two parts as Viola in Shaks peare's comedy of "Twelfth !VtgVt,r end as Kate O'Brien la "Perfection." Mr. Kean appears, of course, as Duke Orsino. The bill is a powerful one, the cart of the come dy embracing the names of Fisher, Barrett, Baas, An drews, Dyott, Povey, Vac he, fee., tic. Bowf.rv Thsatbk?The great historical play of " Jef freys" was performed last night at the Bowery, for the first time in America, it i-miiUm m?]> p**?j" and the plot is well laid, so that on the whole it may be pronounced good, although a censorious critic might point out some important faults. The chief character waa well sustained by Mr. Scott, and the applause was quite warm at times. This play will be repeated to-night, and as it is of the most thruling interest, it can hardly fail to draw another fine house. Obebkwich Tiikatbk.?" Jim Crow" Rica was in his element here last evening, and in the " Ethiopian opera of Otello" shone out in his brightest colors, eliciting bursts of applause and laughter by his performance. The1' jeal ous moor" from the days of Shakspeare down, scarcely

ever found a true representative until Rice conte upon the stage. To be sure the creation ef the great" Bard of Avon," showing forth the "green eyed monster" in all its hideous deformity, was conceived in all imaginable gra vity, to paint the monster, and cheek its vices by a vivid portraiture upon the stage ; but the opera ef the Ethio pian Otello, like the work of the immortal Cervantes, '' Don Qaixotte" which laughed knight errantry out of Europe, is calculated in like manner to laugh jealousy out of the world in the present age. Rice's powers, as an able and graphic delineator of the darker tkadn of Ethio pian character, are too wall known to require commen tary. His engagement here will be snre to draw full and crowded houses, as was evidenced by the full attendance last evening. Mrs. Beoth made a capital " Desdemona," and Chapman's Brabaatie waa also well sustained. The orchestra performed with admirable execution during the " opera." Rice will continue to draw full houaes. Castle Osbpbw?Now, that the warm weather has fairly come, this delightful place of resort will be flocked with people. Concerts are given here nightly, produced in very superior style. Everything is grt up in great taste, even to the ice-creams, and we are glad the garden is so well patronised. Another concert will be given this evening. Dan Marble, the prince ofYankee comedians, is now in Boston. His next engagement is understood to be at the Park. Mr. Joseph Burke was to give concerts in Cleveland, Ohio, on the 1st and 3d insts. He will soon visit Detroit Yankee Hill is giving entertainments in Brooklyn. Ma. Fobbsst in Iniland.?A Cork (Irish) paper gives the following account of Mr. Forrest, at the close of a ; benefit which ho took there in May : At the fall of the curtain, Mr. Forrest was loudly call- ! ed for; and whea he appeared in obedience to the gene ral wish, so warmly and flatteringly expresaed, be waa hailed with a reception such as he is not likely to forget. It waa truly Iriah, and was given as much, if not mote, to the man, than to the actor. The plaudits were so conti nued and enthusiastic, that Mr. Forrest came forward to the centre of stage, and, with the utmost grace and sincerity of manner, delivered the following addreas: Ladies and Gentlemen?Exhausted as I must necessa rily feel after the personation of the Character whteh I have austained, I cannot now find language adequate to express the sentiments of gratitude and respect which now fill ? my bosom; neither am I able to command words in which to return suitable acknowledgements for the kindness which you were pleased to evince towarda me, and for the flattering manner in which you have re eetvsjd my personations of the different character! m whicn i iAiv ?

The shelves of the library displayed a rich and varied store of that sort of" treasure" which is more acceptable to the mind of the scholar than the sordid wealth which *o many are fond of piling up in their cutlers. A catalogue of the numerous works of the ancient and modern authors that ornament the library, would be we# worth publication. Among the members present, were several dis tinguished for their learning, their genius, and their talents?many eminent jurists, and men of science. We recognised among the company the venerable Albert Gallatin?that venerable and able jurist, Chief Justice Jones, Chancellor Wal worth, together with all the members of the Court for the Correction of Errors Hoa. Luther Brad ish, 1st Vice President, Itc. lie. ; together with seve ral others, distinguished for their high scquireaseats in literature and the arts. The genius of classic Greece and Rome, that have transmitted through centuries monuments of the genius of their poets, their orators, and their scholars, that have stoed the test of ages, art ft rtnniut, would seem to have presided over such a scene. At the hour of meeting, Aiiiit Gallatin, Esq., called the meeting to order. The Secretary (Col. Warner) read the minutes of the last meeting, which were approved. Letters were read from various gentlemen, with donations to the society. These donations oonsist of a Historical Sketch of Co lumbia College, by N. P. Moore, from the author; The Oregon Territory, by Travers Twiss, from D. Appleton He Co.; Revolutionary History of Queens County, by Henry Onderdcnk, from the author; Memoir of James De Veaux, by Robert W. Giobes, from the author; Peana's History of Scituate, from B. F. Thompson; Thompson's Recollections of Mexico, from Wiley a Putnam; M8S. papers, from B. F. Thompson; Pamphlets from E. C. Benedict; Biographical Sketch of the Most Rev. John Carroll, ftrst Archbishop of Baltimore, by John Carroll Brent, from the author; Revolutionary He roes, by Mrs. Williams, from the authoress; Circular of the N. E. Historic Evangelical Society, from the Society: Memoirs of the Administrations of Washington and John Adams, from George Gibbs. A portrait of Lord Lyndhurst, in his robes as a Peer of England, was exhibited immediately behind the Chair. The Corresponding Secretary read his report, stating the progress of the intercourse of the Society with cor responding branches of Literary And Historical Societies in various parts of the Union. The draft of a memorial to Congress, remonstrating against the proposed change in the tariff laws, such ae would be calculated to affect the progress of literature and knowledge in the country. The memorial was admirably drawn up, and contained some just and dignified remarks on the impolicy and in justice of levving a tax upon knowledge, and an inter esting copy of " Holmes' Map" of the first three counties of Pennsylvania that were settled, was presented by Se nator Folsom, on the part of subscribers. It was dated 1981, and dedicated to William Penn. The original must be a very curious re he of the early days of the settlers. General Wktmore read the report of the executive committee, containing the names of gentlemen proposed as corresponding members for the ensuing year. The report was accepted. A Member intimated that an auxiliary branch of the society was formed in Dutchess county, and read a re port in favor of recognizing the same. The report was accepted. An original letter, dated New York, 1776, from John. By vank, was presented and read. The letter detailed some of the incidents of the revolution: and the memora ble defeat of the British at Bunker's HilL It was a ven erable looking revolutionary paper. The Chairman said that he received the copy of a translation of a curious leaden plate, which was dated 1740, and had been buried aearrfhe Ohio. The inscrip tion detailed the particulars of the adventures of some Freneh settlers, who, it appeared, had takeu possession of a certain extent of country in this quarter, in the name of the Frenoh king, and for the purpose of com memorating the same. Gxxbral Wbtmobe moved that when the aooiety ad journ, it de adjourn to the first Tuesday in Oetober The motion prevailed. Dr. Green, ef the Vermont Historical Society, inti mated that Mr. Stevens, of the Vermont Historical So ciety, had in his possession some valuable original docu ments, relating to the State oi New York, for which ea offer was made by the "British Museum." He wished, however, to give a preference to the New York Histori cal Society, provided they wished to purchase them. The oase was referred to a committee. The society hereupon adjourned.

Steamboat Palmetto.?We visited, yesterday, the new and splendid steamboat Palmetto, Captain Joseph Spinney, Jan., at the wharf No. ? North River, and we are sattme I, from our Inspection, that tha high character given of her, is not exaggerated. The Palmetto plies be tween Charleaton and this city, and affords the shortest and most pleasant mode of travelling on the route. Her regular running time is fifty-five hours, and her hrajs bot twenty dollars, not more than that of sailing nwels. She is especially fitted for hsr present station, being furnished with meats and eails, as well aa the machinery of a steamer. The boat is fitted up inside in the most costly and elegant manner. The ladies' cabin, particular ly, ia most sumptuously fiited up with every appliance of luxury and comfort. Captain Sninney formerly com manded the steamer New York, ana has been eight years on the coast He is a gentleman of tried experience and of great success in his profession The boat is 180 bet long, 134 feet in depth, and 39} feet in beam. On her last trip to this city she would have been ahead of the mail, but that she was detained for ten hours in a fog of Sandy Hook. She leaves this afternoon at 4 o'clock.

The appropriations already made to carry on the Mexican war, amount to twenty-two million* of dollar*, | ($33,000,000,) which exceed* the surplus revenue aboat I tea millions of dollars. This amount with that required i for the ordinary expenditures of the government, mast, j according to the constitution, be derived from duties en | our foreign imports and sales of public lands; but the ax igenciea of the times will compel the government to re 1 sort to some method of raising money in anticipation of its revenue, which must be either by a direct loan or by iasulng treasury notes. The most feasible as wall as the surest and most ecoaomioal way of raising money is, by the issue of treasury notes, tearing interest, to the extent required. This would relieve the money markets of the Nqrth from the depression large ahipments of specie to uie s?uik k.i pmdu.H and will increase and enable the government to carry on its financial ?panrtiuns to more advantage and with greater expedition The transporta tion of specie from the North to the South in large amounts has unsettled the currency aud basin*** ? affair* of the country, and if carried to a much i greater extent than that already experienced, will create very serious difflculties in the commercial world. Specie transported from point to point, in the oonrae of i the operations of trade, ha* no particular intoence upon commerce, aa it will alwaya go where it is most wanted and for the regulation of balances ;but whan large amounts are carried from one point to another, on acooant of other causes, it must produce derangements in trade, attended with the moat eerioua consequences. The issue of trea sury notes would at once arrest aad alleviate this evil, aa they would rather aid than retard the operations of com merce, and become a very valuable means of "*"1 re. I It ia pretty (uutlljr admitted that whatever alter* tioni or modification* in made ha the preeent tariff, moat be made with an eye to additional revenue. It I haa already been suggested on the floor of the Senate, i that we mult raiae mora rrreane by putting some of the article!,on the free Uat in the Secretary of the Treaaury'a bill, in the dutiable liat A reduction ia the tariff ia Mil in contemplation, bat not to the eatent first pee poos d.

The Secretary of the Traaoary re served theio iteaaa, to make up any deficiency In the re i veaue under the operations of his Ml, bat it ia highly probable that they will be at once incorporated under the head of a twelve and a half or fifteen per cent duty. We have repeatedly urged this and trust R will be idbptsi Several other articles on the free liat co?M with equal justice be made to pey a duty, and there ia very little doubt but that a general revisal of the proposed bills will be made to meet the existing emergency. A mo derate rate of duty upon all articles will produce a greet or revenue theaeaorMtasit discriminations for proteetfoa l Under the praaant act the average rate of duty la gra : dually settling down. The value of dutiable sserrheix | dlse imported late this port for May, 1646, was MA42.M7. on which duties amouatteg to $1 ,900,389, warn paid ; the i dutiable Ipgnrts la May, 1M>, were valued at liutMM, i paying ? duty of $1,977,237, showing aa increase for May, I***, of $017,819 in the value of dutiable goode im ported and a decrease in duties of $90,166. We can only attribute this to the foot, that the importation of foralgn merchandise paying the highest rates of duty, ia gradu ally foiling off At this rate the average duly under ?k? present act would, In a tew yaara, become reduced to that point considered by the saaet rabid free trade advo cates a revenue standard, via : twenty per cent The average under the act of 1843, for the first year of its operation, waa a little more than thirty-four per cent; the average last year, under the seme act, waa but a fraction mare than twenty-nine, showing a decline la three yean, ia the avenge duty,of about tyve per coat.
