We give in to-day's paper a number of extraats from our European exchanges, which will be read with interest by the public. Some ot them refer to the war in Mexico and the taking of California, the establishment of telegraphic communications, Canadian affairs, tea ice. As regards the war, the articles are dictated by the same spirit that pervades the whole of the English press, with scarcely an exception, when sp-aking ol the United S'ntes. T. .... .U_.

The extracts in to day's Htrnld give a sart of couji d'ad at the affairs of the world The Progreas of Astronomical Science?he Verrlrr's Planet. We look npon every tiew discovery which tends to es'ahlish the practical advantages of a"tronom eal science, as ?n much gained for the cau"e of human usefulness It is. then, with great pleasure that we readof a late discovery in astronomy, which proves that certain conclusions can he arrived at jn that science, as well as in the purer mathematics. A young Frenchman named Le Verrier, reflect:ng upon the hitherto inexplicable changes in the position of the planet Uranus, determined to investigate the cause of those changes, which had long puzaled scientific men; as after calculating the attraction of all the known Lodies, it was still found that Uranus appeared in plac-s to which none of these attractions could have drawn it To find out thi* ur,known force was the object of Le Verrier. The difficulties attending such an inves igation may be gathered from the fici that the d ft*-rent forces and attractiona of all the known bodien had turn to be ca'culafed, in order to determine the position and magnitude of the unknown controlling force which had made its effecti visible in the various inexplicable changes of position assumed by Uranus?lor that 'here was tome oth?T undiscovered body, there could be no doubt. Accordingly the young philo'opher, in the solitude of his chamber,worked out the problem, and deteiinined the position and magnitude of the boty wh;ch is now called bv his name. He showed that this hitherto undiscovered force which controlled the motions of Uranus, must be a planet moving round the sun at twice the distance ot Uranus, and having on the first of next January a longitude of S15 degrees, it is, as described by Li"U'enant Maury, a white itsr of the eighth magnitude, very near Saturu M Le Verlier, after calculating the forces of the known planets, crea'ed a hypothetical planet, to which he assumed mass, orhit. n.-ri/vl r.f position, all of which he changed until a combination was obtained which gave the effects known to have been produced on Uranus. Having brought hit calculations tc thii point, he obtained the aid of Doctor Galle, who, on the evening of the 24 h of September, discovered, by the aid of a telescope, the new planet in the position indicated by Le Verrier. It was observed, some days by Lieut. Maury, at the National Observ-torv, and also at the observatories of Cambridge, New Haven, and the High School at Philadelphia. The hypothesis of this new planet was first broached by Le Verrier on the 10:h of November, 1845, before the French Academy of Sciences. As eai as 1842, the celebrated astronomer, Bessel, had intimated to Sir John Herschell the probability of the existence of such a planet as that discovered by Le Verrier, and the theory was also entertained by Mr. Adams, a young mathematician of merit dBgub. Le Verrier deserves all the credit of the discovery. For him it was reserved to indicate the exact orbit, position, and period of revolution of this star, the distance of which from the earth is supposed to be not less thin three thou-and three hundred millions of miles. Its period of revolution round the sun is iiu'. ifM man two nnnareo and twenty years? nearly thre? times that of Urantis. We rejoice, in view of the important discoveries yet to be made in the tlold of astronomical science, that the study of astronomy is at present so zealously attended to in our universities, and that its pursuit receives, to so large an extent, the countenance of our government. The National Observatory cannot be in better hands than those of Lieut Maury, and we feel congdent that there is nothing which research and scholarship can do, that that gentleman will not accomplish. Tke W?io Pakiy?Irs Condition.?With the exception ol the tune when Wm. H Seward was rarri?d into the gubernatorial chair, at no period within a number of years past have the prospects oi the wing party been so good as ihey are at present, for achieving a triumphant victory in the State of New Yotk. They have not only brought forward a> good a ticket as they ever did, but they have all the advantages anting from a change of public opinion in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and other States, by winch their strength ban been considerably augmented, and that of their opponents proportionately decreased. Notwithstanding these advantages, and the necessity of keeping the ball rolling, this party appears Pi be laboring under a strange lam ty that will be fatal to their oaute, in this State, unless it it shaken erf Ttie leaders and orators of the party appear to keep in the background, and avotd parucipaling in the preliminary measures that must necessarily be taken by every party, when victory it worth struggling for. On Tuesday evening last there was a county meeting at Nutional Hall, and instead of there being half a dozen or more ot good speakers, who could instil animation and zeal into the aud ence, there were three or f iur gentlemen who were obliged to speak on the occasion, because none of the regular campaigners were on the ground ; and one of these waa suffering uncer a cold, and his voice was so weak that hundreds did not hear a word ha uttered. i i the spirit displayed at that meeting is an omen of their prospects hi the election, then, indeed, it is blue auougti, and the democrats have uoihing U iesir. dislike to see <naniina*ion in any political party; and wo beg of the whig< to hostir them rivifs, and not let tho eluctiou go by defanlr. Let v 'em go to work with spun, aud do what they " " I V c Mi; and lf they ara dee'med to be beaten, their d?f.-at be an hon >rable one. But ! t them not back cut b -fore the fight begins, or they will be 'h-ashed worse than the Mexicans were at Palo Alto, or Monterey. , Votsbs and 9to.mii ?The expenses attendant upon the Huss pavement in Broadway. have not yet been paid ; and very probubly will never be by the Corporation. The politicians look upon it as a sort of drag chain upon that patronage hitherto enj >yed by various contractors lor paving our streets; und the Common Count; I do no', therefore, intend to pay for this perpetual pavement, when the cobble stones annually furnish a goodly supply of voters. This small block of Ru-s pavement takes at least twenty votes from the party in power. This, probably, gives us a clue to the motives of our corporate lathers, in tolerating the various abuses in our streets, and public thoroughfares. The Russ pavement has now been sul&ciently tested, and has given the most decided satisfaction to its projectors, and our citizens in general. It embraces two features of improvement upon the old system, which should at once recommend its general adoption, namely?durability and economy; for, no matter how expensive at the outset, in the end the plan will prove far more economical than the eternal outlay of money, which the present system of patching and pieceing entails upon the city treasury. It is a lamentable fact, that the fear of undermining the great field ol patronage, which has been so long and so signally abused in this city?a patronage which embraces the whole system of the spoils of office under the corporation, has operated as a check upon all uselul reforms, and kept our city in a condition, in many respects, worthy of some objure village in the " Far | West,"' or elsewhere. In casting our eyes through some of the principal streets, the state of the pavements will excite no less surprise than indig. nation. The small cobble stones that arc used in paving, the patching and loose sort of manner in which the paving of the great thoroughfares of this city ?the emporium of America?is performed, are a disgrace to the age iu which we live. The Russ pavement stands out as n monument of native skill and ability, and a rebuke to o tr city fa'hers . The citizens of New York ?even had not the Corporation the power to levy the re crssary tat, to defray the expenses of paving and improving our city?w?u'd cheerfully subscribe to improve Broadway?and the leading thoroughfares; and it is really monstrous to And every effort at reform clogged by the whe-ls 'ot party, through fear of curtailing the immense patronage now enjoyed, from the highest effioe holder down to the street scavenger. There is no doubt but a bold effort at relortn wru'd strike a decisive blow at the political rowdyism that so frequently disgrace s the ballot box in this city, for it is the thirst for office that forms ttie groat secret of our city politics. If our;principal streets were all paved with the Russ pavement, or something like ii?the contrac or?the mechanic?the laborer, who upon ihe cole ground of politic*, have been selected to work in the present careless and negligent manner, would soon And other and more lucrative channels for enterpriz-*. What has become of the "City Reformers 1" If we had a party of sincere Reformers?who would make the repairs and improvements of our city the sole text question at the ballot box, they would he supported by every respectable voter in this metropolis. It is time that our businesscommunity should take a bold and decisive stand on this question, which should be agitated forthwith, previous to the next spring election. Reporting.?We must again call the attention of the wb'gnnd democratic parties to the neces* ony ui lurirsuing ine press wun goo a accommodations at their public meetings. On Tuesday earning las', at National Hall, there were some three or four dozen persons sitting en the reporters'table, and as many inore stretching and leaning over it, rendering it impossible for the reporters to do their duty. Our corps want a clear field, and a<-k no favor; and, with proper facilities, they engage to give life-like pictures of all that inay take place, iu all political meetings. One would suppose that politicians would, lor their own sakes, attend to these matters. The Capitulation of Monterey.?We see a statement going the rounds of the press, having originally appeared, we believe in the Arte Orisons Tropic, that the terms of the capitulation of Monterey are so framed, as to give General Taylor and his army free passage beyond the great Saltillo nass. or in other ivnrHn ili?t nn nnmuit:? , ? is to be offered him until he pass the great mountain gorge on the road between Monterey and Saltillo, a pass which is very dangerous to an army on march. This statement is entirely incorrect. No such terms have been made, and even if made, we doubt if the Mexicans would abide by them. The fact cannot be disguised that Gen. Taylor will be obliged to cut his way through that pass, and it is one of the greatest perils he has yet to enccunter. But P.ilo Abo, Resaca de la Palma, and Monterey, have shown what the American army is capable of, even at every disadvantage of position. We do not fear for Gen. Taylor. Ahead of the Mail ?News was conveyed to New Orleans, on the 20th instant, three days ahead of the regular mail, by means of the steam ship Southerner, hence to Charleston. The Baliet. In addition to the refined enjoyment afforded our citizens the present season, from the unusual number ot musical artists amongst us, there is yet another fund of delight in stoie for them in the number of eminent votaries of Terpsichore at present in the country. Those who a few years ago witnessed the unbounded success of Fanny F.lssler, will not be surprised at the number of dsnsursrs who have lately sought or.r shores, to participate in that patronage which artistic merit never fails to receive in this country.

Q What was their value after the meeting of the Board of Brokers on the 4th January 7 A. I think about the same as on the 3d and 31 January. To Mr Cutting?Witness after the 1st of January purchased about two or three hundred dollars worth of the bonds The Resolution of the 5th of January. 1848. approving of the officers issuing the converted stock, was tnen put in far the defence, subject to Mr Cutting's exception. The witness also stated there was a meeting of the Directors on the 3d of Januarv, but that no business was done, but upon reading the minutes of the meeting, it appeared there was a quorum present, that the cnair was taken, the minutesof the last meeting read, and that a discussion upon some subject took place between the members. This was to show that the issuing of the stock was not approved of until the second meeting of the Directors. Thecsuse was then summed up, snd Judge Oakley charged the jury He took a very elaborate review ef the whole subject, and concluded by telling the jury that in bis opinion, in a legal point of View, there wax a difference between the converted stock, which was that called equal to cons li lateil stock; that the officers w re justified in issuing it, and that the company could uot afterwards repudiate it If he was wrong in that opinion. he would be corrected He also told them that in regard to the w. itten agreement to return the bonds and take beck the stock the plaintiff could not now set it up. as be did not call at the ti e designated in it. He next toil them in regard to another ground upon which the plaintiffs counsel contended he ought to recover, which was that there was a misappiehension on tho plaintiff s mind, he agreed ior consolidated stock, and thought ha got it until lie put it into the market The tule of law upon this point, wee that if the misapprehension was mutual, then the agreement was void; but it would not do that one party only should misapprehend it. If the officers of the company cave bim that stock, thinking that it was equal in the'market to the consolidated stock, and it turned out afterwards that it wag not, than the misapprehension was mutual, and the contract was void; and il they could gather from the evidence that such was tba tact, they ought to And for the plaintiff The Jury then retired, and had not agreed up to the tim* the court adjourned.

The Court (who heve all along manifested a praiseworthy patience) was engaged during the whole day, from 10% AM., until a quarter past 11 P. M., in listening to the arguments of the counsel. After Mr. Mayo had concluded the case on behalf of the prosecution, Mr Lyons opened in behalf of the defence. His speech received the profound attention of a large audience, and its conclusion was marked by an outburst of applause. Mr Oustavus A. Myers followed oe the same aide in an ingenious argument. Mr. R. G Scott concluded the argument for the defence. Its ability was universally recognized, and there were occasional interruptions by plaudits, although it was in a court of justice. Mr. Mayo wouud up the whole case in behalf of the prosecution, in an elaborate and cstndid argument. The vote was then taken, and the Court, by a vote of five to two, discharged the parties from all fuither prosecution. The announcement of this result was received with enthusiastic shouts of applause from a crowded Courtroom, which we cannot trust ourselves to describe. ?Richmond Enquirer, Oct '17.
