Highly Important from the Armies of Invasion. | ANOTHER BATTLE WITH THE MEXICANS. &c., Sic. We publish on the first side of to-day's paper several highly important despatches from our special correspondents in the army, which will be lound of the greatest interest to the whole i country. We also publish other accounts of the J movements of our troops,rantl of the occupation of j Santa Fe by General Kearney, of the Army ol i the West. It will be seen from these accounts, that there must have been a battle some days ago between the advance of our army, under General Werth, and the troops under Canales, who is reported to have taken up his position before Monterey. If this bo so, it will verify a prediction which we Vtilltiirtnl \ir?plra ocrA thnt ?V?o Movl/.one would oppose the entrance of our troops into Monterey, and afterwards, if beaten, as they probubly will be, would fall back on the town. The next news front the seat of war will, in all probability, convey intelligence of this battle, and perhaps of another that has, ere this, been fought at Monterey, between the Mexicans under Ampudia, and the Americans under General Taylor. We have also advices from Washington, to the effect that in the war and naval departments prevails the utmost activity, and that the most energetic efforts are being made for vigorous operations against the enemy. We rejoice to hear it; and we trust that orders will be forthwith issued from head quarters that our army take their forage from the enemy's country. As long as we pay the Mexicans a high price for provisions, there will be no desire on their part to bring the war to a conclusion. in addition to the land operations,we understand that orders have been issued to take Tampico. San JuanD'Ulloa will be the next place of attack, and we venture to say that the Mexicans cannot long hold out against such vigorous and manifold operations. The " Constituent Congress" will probably have something to think about before December sets in. We are now in the very midst of war. When are we to hear from the army of Chiliuahuaf Who is to nx our next Governor 1?We believe that nearly all the parties have now nominated their Gubernatorial candidates. They run as follows : j/rw. rrmg. mauve. m/tnouuon. Gov 8. Wright, J. Voting, H. Bradley Lt. Gov. . .A.Gardiner, H. Ki?h, G.Kolaom, W.L.Chapin. The Natives have selected their candidate for Governor, but they are yet uncertain whether or not he will accept the nomination; hence his name is withheld for the present from the anxious public. The Anti-Renters and National Reformers have not yet made their nominations. The latter will probably preserve tlseir independence by having candidates of their own, but it is supposed that the Anti-Renters will be satisfied with the whig candidate, who is a good enough Apti- | Renter for the present. The two great parties?the whigs and democrats, have selected their men, and in about a week they will probably settle their little private difficulties, and f>ach become nnited. It would no^ surprise us, however, to seethe whigs, by the assistance of the Anti-Renters, poll a very heavy vote, unless 'die natives weaken them in this city j and the riv er counties. ?

We are disposed to believe that most of the gentlemen composing this body are very well-meaning men, bat they should not allow their time to be frittered away so i unprofitably as it has [hitherto been. There is too much oratorical display in the convention. Every man w ishes to speak, and to press his own views on the body. The senseless harangues that arc frequently delivered, disgust men of sense; and, mdecd, we cannot blame them j for avoiding such inflictions by staying away. On j Wednesday evening last the body adjourned for vtant of a quorum, as was frequently tho case ! before. We trust that ti je sensible members of the convention will put down all useless debate, and bring their labors (if such slow and lazy proceedings can be called labors,) to a close. As they have undertaken the office, it is a duty they owe to their fellow-citizens, to carry out the object for which they have been chosen. They have been in session now lor upwards of two mortal months, and, so far as we are informed, without any practical results. News peom Havana.?The ship Norma, Capt.

Sivori was born in Genoa, on the 6th of June, 1817. His parents are distinguished citizens of Genoa. His father, an opulent merchant, would not have suffered his son to adopt the profession of music, but that his genius was developed so early, and to such an amazing extent, that he thought it would he criminal in him to hinder the natural bent of tho child's mini.? So early as at throe yoars of age, having induced his f-'Une fiimialv Kim nriiK o ptiiM'a vinlin Iia KoffQn in apply himself, and withauch assiduity, that at four yean ha could perform erery thing be heard his siateri play or ling. The report of hi* precocity ipread over Genoa, and he was invited erery where, even to the soirees of the nobility. He ?ooa became a (pecial feature at the greateit partie*, and morning and evening concert* were given to bring him out. He wae frequently invited to the regal palace, and on luch occasions he was loaded with present*. When the child was six year* old. Paga nini happened to arrive in Genoa. Ho heard Sivoii piny, and at once adviied his father to have him instructed.? The father was doubtful as to the propriety of allowing the boy to adopt music a* a profession; but Puganiui took the child under his own tuition, and such was the progress of the pupil, that in two months he played in public a concerto, written expressly for him by hi* great master, together with six short sonatas. All these pieces, written out in Paganini's own hand, the artist still preserves. The great Maeitro took astcuishing pains with thefboy, although in Jevery other instanco he refused to receive a pupil, notwithstanding the immenso offers made to induce him to do so. He was in the habit of treating his pupil with great severity, during his practice, although he was always affectiouate to him when the lesson was over. At the end of six mouths, Paganiui departed for Germany ; and such was his attachment fur young Sivori, that he requested his fathnr to sulfur him to take him with hi n en hi* tour, for tho purpose of continuing his instruction. This the father would not assent to, and at the instance of Pagauini, the boy was placed under Costa, who had instructed the great artist in his first studies. For three years Sivori underwent a rigid course of tuition under Costa, who Instructed his pupil in the pure Italian music of Corelli, Tsrtioi, Viotti.&c. When Paganini returned to Oenoe be was dolighted with the progress made by Sivori, and advised that he ahould ba placed under M. Dellepiaoc to learn expression; and taste?at the same time that he still continued under the tuition of Coeta. Under these two instructors he made wonderful progress. In 1#27, when he was between ten and eleven i ears of age, he set out, accompanied by his tutor, M.Oellopiane, to make the tour of France and F.ngland. In Pet is lie played twice at the Comervatoire with distinguished success. Of his execution on the violin, at one of these concerts, the Journal ,lri Urban of theS-Uh of February, iai8, speaks in the following terms. " He surmounts tho greatest difficulties with the perfect ease that distinguishes the great tin a u..acl ?il, sented by the smallneasof hit hands. But what particularly distinguishes him, is the soul he puts in his execution?the fint quality of an artist, and which neither time, study, nor counsels can give." He gave three public concers in London, and everv night was engaged at fashionable soirees. From London he returned to Taris, where he remained for nine months in study, lie then proceeded to the principal cities of France, ami afterwards to Genoa, creating an immense excitement on the way home. He now applied himself to the study of counter point under Serra, and remained practising under this excellent master for eight years. About this time M. Dellepiane, his tutor, who was first violin at the theatre Carlo Felice, and master of the Conservatoire of Genoa, died, and Sivori held both places for an endro year, for the benefit of the widow of the deceased aitist. He retained the two situations for a year and a half afterwards, on his own account, travelling during the vacations into several of the Italian States, and giving concerts in the principal cities. He was during all this time arriving, by arduous study, at that perfection of execution and style, for which he is now so eminent He entertained a strong desire te possess one of Paganini's violins, and his father having applied to the gieat master, ottering any sum he named for the instrument, the latter replied that he would not sell the violin, but would present it to the young artist in compliment to his high talents. This is the instrument upon which Sivori plays in public. In 1840 he travelled to Nice, on purpose to receive the violin from I'aginini's own hand Tne latter was on his death bed, and having heard Sivori play on the instrument, with which he presented hnn, he advised him to go to Paris and study thore. Pag,mini died a tortnight afterwards, and Sivori having resigned his directorship of the Contervatoire, set out on a tour ot Kuropo. He visited the principal cities of Italy, Germany, and Russia, and everywhere gave concerts with unbounded success. He was loaded with testimonials and presents, and after a stay of eighteen months, arrived at his native city. After a repose of three mouths, he set out lor Paris, ,md aftergiving some concerts in that e.ity, he receivod a medal and complimentary letter from tlie Koyal Academy of Music. He next visited Belgium, wlieie he R ive several concerts, tro of which were for the benefit of the poor of Antwerp and Liege. On his return to Paris he gave a concert at the Italian Opera, which was one of the moat brilliant affairs ever seen in I'aris lie afterward* visited London, where he gave a number of concerts, and created a greater/urerr than any other artist that had ever visited that city, exceut Puginini He was engaged at private soirees at the most fasnionable houses in London, and never received less than thirty guineas a night on such occasions. He aftcrwaids play ed in Lublin fourteen times, and appeared at Liverpool, Cork, Maachester, and other cities lie was everywhere received with the same enthusiasm. He made an excursion to Holland, anil gavo fifty concert* in the space of two months He also made n rn-it to Denmark, Germany, anl other countries, and having spent the last season in London, is now amongst us, with the.endorsement of all Ktirupe as to his artistic excellence, rtivori is a little over 29 years He is said to produce more elfect thau any liviug violinist, I and even to equal his great master in this respect. But I we will let the loreign journal* speak for themselves on this subject. [From La Franco Musicale, Feb 19. 1-141 ] Last Friday's enteitainmeut wui more brilliant and delightful even than the first; it was heightened tiy the ptessroce of the star of the season, t'anuilo Hivori Nothing we have hitherto been acquainted with can he compared to that wonderful artist? petfurmanco He played Paganlni's " Clochette," a piece preeminently distinguished for grace, fancy, and the must enchanting ori ginality.

Me is, without doubt, the most extraordinary artist of the present day. [From the Journal de Liege, March 13, 1SU ] It is perfect, it is divino ! It is impossible to hear anything more extraordinary ! Such were the w?r ts that circulated yesterd ly, at our theatre, a few m< men's Hf:*r Camillo Siveri's wonderful |.erlormance. It is because it ia impossible to offer a more complete, a more per ect assemblage of all the qualities that constitute the great *iolini#t; because, beneath Sivori's how, the violin ce ises ono might say. to bo a violin, and becomes a voice whose accents, now lefty and terrible as the sounds ot the temjiest -now gentle, delicate, coquettish and murmuring as a bewitching tattle, produce as much emotion n? surprise ; because, if the artist astonishes by the magic, of hit pliy, he is able, wired it suits him. to make his instrument eing, end to do this, like everything el*o, in perfection.

IP rum L,a riwie | Sivori's concert took plaoe at the Italian Opera, before a numerous anl select assembly. Camillo Sivori hai been the muaical lion of the aeaaon ; and, aince Paganini, no violinist has met with such success ; a success well merited in evory respect, and for which he is in no wise indebted to trickery Hivori's execution is really prodigious, displaying an inconceivable ease, caprice, brio and audacity ?he duos in possibilities as if they cost him no trouble. His variations on Paganim's Carnival of Venice exceed every thing that can be imagined in shape of difficulties, and these are overcome in se triumphant a manner that it would scam that to play on the violin were the easiest thing in the world. The old Venetian air which serves as tuc theme to these marvellous caprices is exquisite, and is worth whole cart-loads of operas ; it is joyful and melancholy fit the same time ; tears and laughter ore blended together: and when you hear Sivori play it, all sorts of fantastic visions flit across your mind. You see the white doves of San Marco skimming through the a/.ui o sky, and the gondolas gliding under the marble bridges : each Dote as it passes bv wrapped up in the bautta of black lace, lifts up its vsfvet mask for an instant, and discovers a once loved countenance. The modulations rock you languishing!}' like becalmed waves, and you would lose yourself completely in your revery, did not a nasal, chuckling passage, like the giggling of a group of masks, suddenly rouse you, and bring the smile hack to your lips. [From the London Illustrated News.] The first thing that strikes the eye is, that the young debutant is the complete reproduction of Paganiiii himself; the face is different, but otherwise it is the great artist resuscitated. There is the same peculiar manner of holding the violin, with tho elbow completely turned in, the same position of the legs, the same swing of the whole body from the hips, and the same coniman ing jerk with me uow. snct tne tune 01 raganini many periormers have imitated his mechanism with more or less success, with more or less refinement; but none of them have caught up his spirit, and one by one they have dropped in'o oblivion. With Sivori it is otherwise ; he has not ouly inherited the arm and fingers ef his preceptor, but he has caught his spirit also. [From the London Globe.] He stands in the same posture?the same swing of body as Pftgnnini ; under this motion he throws his flowers? lovely bit< of melody? among the audience. In the midst of this d"light, which roclts yon iutoelysiun.?he breaks olf into his devilry?which continues for a time, when all is hush, and you hear the cries and sobs of the infant in his arms. Tnough not so intense in passion as Ptjganini, he is more natural, sweet, and refincJ. The prodigies of play are cquahy astonishing. The sounds seem to fly upwurds and to the height of the three octaves above the lines. The.pizzicatojaccompaniment to his lovely cantabiles is that of the castanets gently played. It is said of Sivori and his master, that they never feel the full inspiration of play till they see the devils' tails come out at the is holes ot the fiddle. He is eithsr ic the infernal regions or in paradise The applause was so great at the shake which terminated his concerto, that not a sound of the hundred performers in the orchestra could be heard. [From the Cork Examiner ] For sweetness, depth of feeling, tenderness, softness, music, we never heard anything equal to this performance. ??????? At one moment, it was like the human voice ; at another like the silveriest notes of the tiniest bird?now, it re-embled the full swell of the organ; again, it produced t i.i in.ies winch one dreams of, but rarely, if ever, hears. Then tne execution ! rapid, wonderful, fantastic ?the very eccentricity of art ! He seemed to play with the string", defying them to produse discord. Now, he la.i the most delicate and complex passages on the first siring ; him in uw nexi iiiouinui no Kinvv leii uui muuc from the lowest <1 pths of the fourth. Amidst a ma/.e of variation*, a redundancy of ornament, you still discover tlxe silver thread of the " sujet '?that always struck upon the ear with exquisite distinctness. [From the London Morning Tost ] The appearance of Sivori, as the interpreter of Beethoven nets at rest the question, if ever it has been one, into hi < capability ot executing every school ot music, lie produce 1 the most luscious tone; and the most earnest of his applauders was Spohr, who watched every movement of the young (fenooso with the most intense interest and evident admiration. In his own concerto Sivori's seiutilNtions wete quite exciting In his cadence tho coruscations were most startling. Surprise succeedc I su prise?marvel alter marvel came, and yet another mid another -it was, start eyes and ears. Sivori was, no douht, urged to extra exertion by the preseuce of Spohr. The rontia?t between these two great violinists, each distinguished by the finest attributes, was very striking. Spohr is ot colossal stature, ami looks more like au ancient Human than a Urunswicker ; Sivori is the antithesis of Spohr in stature. Spohr has ihe severe phlegmatic Teutonic aspect ; Sivori his the flashing Italian eye and variability of feature. Spohr stands firm and still; Sivori's body is all on the swing?he tears the notes, as it were, from hit instrument. Spohr's refinement snd polish have been the cnsracieristict of his playing ; in Sivori it is the w-ilJ energy?tue soul in arms?the determlnstion to be up and doing?the daring impulse of youthful genius. Spohr's playing is remarkable for its fill appeals to the affections. We might go on ad infinitum [Kro-n the Birmingham Journal ] He it as neaily as may he live feet in height.

[From the Cork Examiner.] To describe the performance of Mignor Bivori, i* a thing impostible. To afford tome idee of it, it almost so. Wordt are'no poor, wo might say too unsympathising, to tell of the ravishing melody that gushes trom the uugreoi'ful iustrument, like a musical rivulet from a rude rock; or to describe all the wild, wayward, unaarthly tones, that cry, or moan, or shriek, in obedience to the spirit that conjures them into momentary being.

[From the .Morning Post.] Fer ourselves, we answer Sivori's playing is an apic poem, in which we trace design and treatment ia every stage of the story. It is the porfeciion of execution, moving masses to boundless enthusiasm, and exciting aveu tue stoical professors, with all their mechanical expeiience, to expressions of raptnre. We scorn to descend to technicalities with such playing Whet have the ordinary achievements of violin performances to do with 8.von I lie ia there a magician, waving a wand which mikos every auditor thrill with dolight.

Long, we have received tiles of O Mercantil, and of the Jornal do Comercio to the 14th tilt. We find nothing of in'ereft as respects affairs in Brazil; but the arrival if the American brig Eagle, at Rio, from Montevideo and Buenos Ayres, brought later intelligence from the blockading squadrons, and the Argentine republic. Although no positive intelligence had been received to that effect, yet various circumstances render it almost certa:n that the combined English and French squadrons had withdrawn their forces from Buenos Ayres. Mr. Hood's mission seems to have been conducted with much diplomatic acumen and liberality, which, if previously adopted by the foreign ministers, would have saved much property, and rendered less prevalent the indignant feeling now prevailing against the combined powers. Mr. Hood had otncially stated that the English minister had gone beyond his duty in the conduct pursued by him; and in matter of fHCt, concessions were made by Mr. Hood to Hosas, which, on the part of the latter, were favornbly received. General Mnnsilla had received orders to place no obstacles in the way of vesmls passing on the Parana; and the general opinion prevailed that the long and vexatious war was ended. The English and French governments were evidently nred of a conllict in which they gained nothing, and created nn universal odium against themselves throughout the South American republics, j General Rivera still remained at L >s Vaccas. i The governor of Montevideo had sent proposi- j tl..? >.vnl. m Km the latter, owing to the manner, or titles with which he was addressed, relused all offers The Rio Janeiro papers, without exception, severely condemn the interfering course of the European powers; and cvinco a spirit but little in accordance with the interests of the AngloFranco governments, while at the same time they commend the independent course pursued by the American ministers.

Mr. Vinton called up the proposition ' I ottered by him at the last Convention, making "communicants" alone eligible to sit as lay delegates in the Convention. The subject was, on motion, referred to the next Convention. The Hon. Judge Burnett then called up the resolution I instructing the standing committee to pay Bishop Onder! donk's salary. It is as follows Resolved?That the Trustees of the Episcopal Fund lie directed to pay over to the Rt. Rev B. T. Onderdonk, j l) D , outef the income of the said Fund (excepting the portion thereof set apart for accumulatioo) the sum of two thousand live hundred dollars annually, to commence i from the first of October, 1846, until otherwise directed ' by the Convention ; and that he be paid at the same rate for the period from the 3d of January, 1944, to the first of ; October, 1946, whenever the state of the Fund will adi unit. Judge Buel, of Troy, offered an amendment as folj lows : ? Resolved?As the solemn and deliberate jU Igment of j thisConvention that the episcopal fund of this diocese wbs established by themembers and parishes thereof, for thet purpose of supporting the Episcopate of the Protestan Episcopal Church in the diocese of New Vork, to secure 1 services therein, and to maintain the usefulness and dig! nity of the Episcopal Church, and cannot tie appropriated ' to a Bishop convicted of immorality and impurity An amendment to this amendment, was ottered by Mr. | Hoyle, as follows :? Whereas, doubts are entertained of the expediency of the Convention appropriating anv part of the Episcopal iuuu 10 uidoi |iui|iu.i?b, man m? payment o< me salaries ad expenses incurred by the penona actually performing the dutiea ol the the epiicopate, Therefore Resolved, That it be rocom ueaded by the Convention, that a fund be raised in tho ordinary way, by the ereral churches in this diocese, and paid to the Ht Rev. B T Onderdonk, D. D , for his suppoit, until the General Convention can take other necessary steps to relieve the episcopote from its present embarrassment. The convention then adjourned to 7 o'clock, P. M. At the openingot the evening session, the Hon Judge Duer enquired if the motion made by Mr. James tlonroe for an indefinite postponement of the wtule subject had been carried ;whereupon a debate ensued.

Av its?Clerical 49 ; Lay 91. Nsvs?Clerical 81 ; Lay 64. The motion to postpone was accordingly lost. The last amendment was then withdrawn by the proposer.

An amendment to this amendment was then submitted by Mr. uiu. C. Hamilton, in the following words : ? " It being expiossly declared that this grant of a part of the episcopal fund of this diocese is not to be deemed, taken, or construed as in any mode or degree admitting or affirming the continuance of the jurisdiction, or any right or title of tho Right Rev Bishop Onderdonk. now under sentenco of suspension ' from the office of Hi hop of the Church of God, and from all exorcise 01 his episcopal and ministerial function#,' to any part of the income of aaid ltind " The Convention then adjourned to nine o,clock this day.

They both were exceedingly hsppy in the pourtrayal of their parte Nor must we omit mention of Mr Baaa ; never did we see him to such advantage aa he appeared in taking the character of Helen's father. Mr. Leonard in the play of " Man and Wife," had but little opportunity of exhibiting any superior powers ; but in O't'allaghan, in the comedy of " His Laat Legt," he evinced an appreciation of the character we have never seen in ita delineation.

Dr. Meter's Cone ext.?Notwithstanding the very un lavorame siate 01 me weainer, a very Numerous, aril liant, and fashionable audience attended Leopold de Meyer's first concert of the season at the Tabernacle last evening. Thero coald not have been less than three thousand persons present; and we have never attended a concert in New York that went off* better, and few that went off hnlf so well. Da Meyer was received with a perfect storm of applause,'which continued until we thought he must be tired bowiag his thanks But this appleu'e was nothing to that which followed the conclu-ioa of his first piece. There was cheering and waving of handkerchiefs, aad bravos, and every manifestation of the wildest enthusiasm and delight Bowing his thanks, amid a shower of bouquets, he made his way off the platform, but was obliged to ap|>ear again, at the repeatoil calls of the audience, and bow his thanks once more. This was at the close of the " Fautasie on Semiramif." At the close of the " Andante Religioso," the same scene was repeated. " Le Carnival de Venice" was *nthusiastically encored, but he played instead, the " March Marocaine." His last piece was a " Capriccio on the " Star Spanglod Banner." The sensation at the end of this piece was indescribable, and De Meyer retired amid demonstrations of uproarious appluuse. There were over thirty bouquets thrown him, and altogether he has a right to be proud of his reception ou his reappearance after his tour before a New York audience, for never did artist get a mure euthusiaatic welcome. Oa the whole, the concert was one of the most delightful musical treats we have ever enjoyed. From 'he first wave of the leader's baton in the first overture, to the last note that trilled from the ttiroat of Pico, it was magnificent, dashing, and effective. The orchestra, which was very full, was led by Mr. George Ledor. and comprised the first musical talent of New York, Among the rest Marks, Bristow, and others of high repute. They executed several pieces with surprising conformity, and in a most masterly manner. The " March Marocaine,"executed by them iu capital style, was enthusiastically encored, and all their pieces met with warm and deserved upplauso. Signers Pico was aifiicted with a severe cold, and did not appear to eo much advantage as on other occasions, but she still was received with a warmth that told how high -he stood iu the favor of the audience. Herr Hecht, a gentlam.a possessing a very fine barytone, sang with a great deal of feeling and judgment, and Kraitlsin Koraiuski added to her already high fame as a vocalist.
