? i IVEvv YORK HERaLL \t*v lork, Drctuibtr I, HOLIDAY HERALD, NOTICE TO THEWORLD. The Illustrated History of the Mexican War. W? desire to inform our patrons and readers that we are now preparing to publish a grand Pictoriil IfrraM tor the Holiday*, the like of which has never been seen in this country. It will contain the labors of twenty-three artists in the Uuifed Urates, including California and part of Mexico. In addition to illustrations on miscellaneous subjects, it will contain all the Mexican engravings that we have published in the daily Herald, from lime to tune, and will form a complete and graphic pictorial history of the present war with Mexico, up to the day of publication. The engravings are in the first style of art?a specimen ?f them will be found on the outside ot this day's paper. This grand affair will be ready on or before the 30th inst., printed on good paper, and will be delivered at 6.J cents each A liberal reduction will be made to our agents, as usual, who will please send in their orders as so*n as possible. The First Day of Congress. The second session of the twenty-ninth Congress opened at Washington at twelve o'clock yesterday. There was a ijuornin in each House, and both branches of our national Legislature were therefore organized for the transaction of business. The first day's proceedings will be found in another column of this day's paper. We now begin operations lor the winter. If we mistake not, this session will be an important one?important in every point of view- Washington, for the next three months, will bo the centre of attraction?the grand buttery from which the results of tfce congressional deliberations, affecting the welfare of this great country, wiil flash off to every direction over the lightning lines that are now so rapidly spreading their meshes over the Union. The message will be delivered at twelve o'clock to day. It will immediately be transmitted to this citv bv telegraph and railroad. An abstract will probably be issued at an early hour this afternoon in on Extra IIkrai.p. The Last Revolution In Mexico. On Sunday, the 29th of November last, we received a communication by telegraph lrom one of our correspondents, and which we published in our paper of that day exclusively, announcing the important fact that despatches had been received from our squadron in the Gulf, to the effect that the Mexican administration had been dissolved, and that Almonte was going to England It further stated, that Santa Anna was compelled to refund the two millions of dollars which he had taken from the conducta, and deliver it to the owners, who were British mer**hnnt<a This intelligence was copied from our paper into almost all the journali of the country, South, North, and West, with com.nents of various kindsThe Union, the official organ in name, but not in fact, undertook to deny its authenticity, and say that there was no foundation lor it whatever. Recent events, however, have shown, that in this, as well M in other instances, the Herald waa-correct. It i? now prrtty wpf! known that the administration of that country was dissolved at the tinse we mentioned the fao', and that a partial revolution had likewise broken out. The information wtut conveyed to our squadron by tho officers of the English vessels, likewise in the (Jnlf, wh > in their turn received it from the owners of the specie that was on its way to the capital. We have on other occasions roceived important information in that way?being conveyed to the capital by those in charge of conductas, by them communicated to the British merchants, by them to the officers of the Britisji vessels of war, by them to the officers of our squadron, and by them transmitted in the form of despatches to our government. Ladnc* of SMir Ska Witch?Nkw Link of Belfast Packet*.?The splendid ship Sea Witch, whose peculiar model, and sharp bows, have for the last few months attracted so muoh attention, was launched about noon yesterday, from the yard of Messrs. Smith <te Dimon, foot of Fourth street. She was built fjr Messrs. Howland Sl Aspin* wal), for the Canton trade, and is to run in connection with the fast sailing ship Rainbow, al?o owned by the same gentlemen. The Sea Witch is, for a vessel of her size, the prettiest vessel we have ever seen, and much resembles the model of the steamer Great Bcitain, only on a smaller scale. She is built of the very best material, and although presenting such a light appearance, is inMt strongly constructed. Her figure head is intended to represent the black dragon?the symbol of the Chinese empire. Captain R. H. Waterman, of the ship Natchez, like Captain Bailey, of the Yorkshire, is celebrated for quick passages, is to have commaad of her. Her length it 192 feet over ail, 34 feet beam, 19 hold, and 900 tons burthen, making as fine a specimen of New York ship building as we have seen in a long time. The new line of packets mentioned by us a few days since, as about being formed, is, we learn, now in operation, and is composed of the following fine substantial vessels, and commanded by skilful and experienced navigators: new ships IHenmore, Monterey, and bark Thetis, and another, whose name we forget. Messrs. Richardson and Watson, proprietors of the line, deserve to ue, biiu we nave not the least doubt will be, suecessful. One oi the above vessel* will leave regularly every month from this port and Belfast, and it i> in contemplation to extend the line and run oftener, if the business demands it. Tux Maonxtic Txliqxaph.?We have heard of a commercial transaction demonstrating beautifully the advantages to camm. roe of this great and wonderful agent. The news was telegraphed lrom Boston to this city in the evening?thence to Rochester and Buffalo, where merchant* held large amounts of flour and produce. Immediately on hearing ot the fall of flour in England, they sent message> to their agent* in New York, directing them to *eli every barrel of flour they held on their account at whatever sum it would bring. Thus we tee intelligence travelling, in the short space ef two or three hours, (rom Boston to New York, thence to Buffalo, Rochester and back again to New York?a distance of nearly 1200 miles?carrying important information to all interacted in the grain and produce of the country. And yet it ?'"ovsreome os like lummrr cloud, Without our ipocitl wonder " Affairs in Euxo?*, lie ?Wo c ill the attention ot our reader* to the extract* irom our foreign file*, given on the out?ide of this day'* Htrald.

The streets are full of people and vehicles, aad the Boulevards are crowded with gay people ot all descriptions. This is precisely a description of this day about noon-tide, in the middle of the month of November. Yet, with all its beauty, brightness and delight, 1 like it not. The Novem- ! bers of New York can beat all the world. There is nothing in this part of the world like the au- I tumns of America?they have something that resembles them, but that is all. The existence and progress of the American war in Mexico, seem to produce singular feelings among the governments and their tmployitt of Western Europe. With the people it may be different; but the people have little or no voice. ' No one can conceive the jealousy and dislike which prevail among all the governing elM*es i wards the United States. They see in th#' pr6- ! gress of our glorious republic the growth of en 1 element ot human society, that will never rest till Europe be changed from the bottom upwards, t During the last few months, a great estrangement has taken place between France and Eng- j land?a ridiculous estrangement toe, for It has i grown out of the marriage of two bits of the blood royal. The newspaper press of London , and Paris has been, accordingly,'carrying on a bit- i ter war of words ever since?yet, in the midst of ; these criminations and recriminations, both the representatives ef 'the two governments speak of the United States and the victories over Mexico with the same degree of disparagement and contempt. We have no real friends in any European government, and nothing would delight the statesmen of this continent more than the downtall of our system, and the failure of our government. H'Iia lirornrvrlnaa ia fli#? <tftrrtA ulnni 1 have been here as yet only a few days, after , having traversed, since July, several'thousand | miles over Europe, in every possible mode of I conveyance, through Switzerland, Italy, Istnia, | Hungary, Bohemia, Saxony, Prussia, tic. be. 1 , I may probably prepare a journal of my tour pt J my leisure, but to Mrs B. 1 shall leave the task of ! describing the fashions of Paris, and tlje other gay capitals through which we have passed. She has kept notes of her whole journey, and i we certainly had a chance to witness some rich and curious scenes and characters in these pere, grinations. We propose sojourning in this me1 tropolis for the next few months, and in a few days we are to be presented to M. Guizot, the great statesman of France, and other distinguished persons of both sexes. At my leisure, I shall have much to say, for we are taking our time to study the society, manners, politics, and j i religion in Europe. This continent is in a transition state of a most novel and iearfnl kind. There is not a government, except that of Russia, that is not treading on a volcano The next great popular revulsion will not be in France or England?it is mueh more likely to take piuce in 1 Italy or Germany. Switzerland is already in tram, l was a lortnigtit in Ueneva, a lew days before the recent revolution, and saw the seeds ! [of change in 'a state of singular activity. There was a political celebratian which then took place, that recalled to my senses and my imagination, a Fourth ol July in a country town in the United States. Ten days after, the revolution broke out. But enough at present. I am full of matter, but ! not prepared. ________ 1M POUT ANT, IP TRLTC?'THK CAPTURE OP ?ALT1LL0. ?The following paragraph was copied into the Herald of yesterday, from the New Orleans Dtlta of the 28tli ult:? On the 15th lost. Gen. Tuylor ar.d bis stall', with GenWorth in commnud of a brigade, left Monterey on a tour of reconnoisance of the country. They at the same tine took and garrisoned SaltlUo,and were about to return to camp. Another account states that they left Monierey ou the 13th. Our latest accounts from Monterey are to the 18tli nit. Let us see if this statement can be true. The distance between ihe two towns is 73 miles. The first ten miles of the road to Saltillo are good, but rough and up hill. The next ten miles are down hill; but along a road as rugged and uncouth as the face of a pock marked man Far smoother is the road for the succeeding twolve miles; yet, unfortunately for the traveller, it is remarkably steep, and partly through a barranca, or ravine. These ravines are very numerous in Mexico. At the summit of the steep ground we have alluded to, there is a village { called Puetlo de to* Mutrtot, or Ang'ict, gate ot the dead. A great battle was once fought there between the Spaniards and Indian.*, which, as a matter of course, resulted in the overthrow of the latter with tremendous slaughter. It would be ?trange indeed, if the white anil red races were to meet a second time as enemies, at the Putrto dt lot Muertoi' After passing along a barren tract ot land, you arrive at Saltillo. According to this, Generals Taylor and Worth could hardly have had time to take and garrison Saltillo, and send word hack to Monterey.between the 13th and 18 h nit , although "Old Rough and Keady," and the " Waving Plume," with their troops, can perform a great deal in a short space of time. If Generals Taylor and Worth left Monterey on the 13th ultimo, unencumbered with heavy artillery, they would probably reach their place of destination about the 17th, one day be* fore Major Graham left Monterey. Four wneeled carriages, heavily laden, have gone, we believe, Irom Monterey to Saltillo in six days. The town of Saltillo, like Monterey, is seated at the side of a hill?the possession of which is soon followed by that of the town. The houses are low, but snug looking. The great square is of dimensions proportionate to the size of the place, and, as is usual in Spanish American towns, is located in the centre. The population of Saltillo ir twelve thou, sand. It is a place which travelers do not often visit. A party of Texan adventurers once surprised the town of Monterey, and held possession of it lor some time?but we believe that no hostile force evar entered Saltillo. The inhabitants of Saltillo are said to be unf| tec ted in their manner, and very kind to strangers. This town is distant from San Luis 320 miles.? The road one-hair that distance is good, but along a mountainous range. The great obstacle to the inarch of an army in this direction is the scarcity of water, whicli is only ob*ainable at wells, 20 miles apart. Moreover, the water is very brack isli, and might even turn the stomach of a disci* l>le of Preigmtz or a Atlantic a??i> Pacific Railroad.?We are delighted to see the people of the W?t and Southwest alive to the importance of connecting the navigable waters of the Atlantic with those of the Pacific, by railroad. Since we last referred to thu matter, popular meetings have been held in Cincinnati, Pittsburg, Louisville, St. Louis, Terra Haute, la., Indianapolis, Dayton, Ohio, and Colurabuv and Wheeling, Va., and more will undoubtedly be held in other parts of the country. We hope that Congress will do something effectual towards constructing this great work, or at all event*, in ccmmenciug it. If the Un'red Stat** are true to themselves, and appreciate the extraordinary advantages that nature has lavishrd on our country, this work will be commenced immediately. If not, the power to do so may slip from our grasp. A canal < once constructed across the Isthmus, and the trade of the world is diverted from us. We repeal, we hope Congress will not tail to do something about it this session.

The time oocupied by the Mohegan in crossing the open part of the Sousd, from the point of the island to the month of the river Thames, was about SO minutes. A large portion of the travellers between New |, York and Boston now take this route, and over the Norwich and Worcester road. The L>ong Island company, by the increase of travel, have been induced to negotiate for a line between Providence and New York, via Stonington, triweekly, for the accommodation of Providence and the towns in that neighnorhood, and east, including New Bedford, Fall River, fcc.,. for the coming winter.

Thk ArOLLO*to*s.?To-night, the Tabernacle, which has bean the scene of so many musical triumphs, we | , hope to see filled. Our citizens, who have given their ( meed of praise, and their presence, at the concerts of foreign performers of emiaence, now have an opporta. nity of listening to the mnsic and the outpourings of genius of the children of their own State. The Maiten Bullock snd Cole are from nine to fourteen ycais of sge. but their performances on the violin, viola, piano, and violoncello have been such a? to secure the unqualified praise of the moit talented artists of our city. Tno pieces performed by tbem and the little Ann Maria, a little airl I of but eight year* of age, are the compositions of such author! at Herz, D?

We sincerely hope that they will be greeted to-night by an overflowing audience, which they will undoubtedly gratify and aurpriae.

At the aound of the music from the orchestra, they glided through the winding of the paw it Flrurt, ' displaying remarkable precocity and a proficiency in the art of dancing that we never mw equalled in creature* so youthful. In witnessing tkem the spectator naturally calls to mind the great labor and care bestowed on their training by their preceptress, Mad. Josephine Weiss, who ; has every reason to be proud of the flattering reception her pupils received last night. We shall defer writing an 1 extended notice |of their performers till we see them again. In the meantime, we can assure the play-going public that they are certainly the greatest novelty that has ever been brought out in the United States, and eminently worthy of the flatterin* encomium* that we 1 bate r?a<l of tliem io the French and Kngliah journal).

Conviction and Sintknce of Death.?An ad- i nrned term of the Supreme Judicial Court was mmenced in thi? town on Wednesday last, for the trial Leander Thompson and Benjamin Pratt, for the crime arson. The offence was committed at D luglaa, on e night of the 18th of March. About half past ten :)ock of that night, the family of Ithiel Cummings are aroused from their sleep in consequence of the icovery that the hoiue and barn were on Are. The rn was burnt down, Dut the Are upon the house was on extinguished. A bundle of hay had been placed 1 alnst the back side of the house, directly under the ik, and set on Are. It communicated to the house, and mt IhronvK thai aide in ana or two nieces before it wu tinguished. A person in the neighborhood, going to e Are, met t w6 penon* in wagon about hall a mil* itant from Cummings' of whom he recogniaed aa lompsen. Ha inquired of theia about the Are, but got reply. Near the house waa found a place where a >r*e had recently (topped, an<l atood, apparently, unea, for a short tine The track made by one foot of the irie waa very peculiar, having a different ahoe from the her leet. By thi* track the horae was traced to a livestable in Millville, (Blackstone,) the place Thompeon d Pratt resided at It was shown, that on the evening of i t Are, Pratt had hired the horse making this tiack, to i four miles with Thompson. When they returned, the rso waa very warm and sweaty, and the keeper ef e stable claimed pey for aaore than four miles, saying st the horse could not get eo warm in travelling that itance. Pratt denied, however, that they had been ther, and paid lor no more. They were heard from a tavern on a road to Douglaa, which place they left out S o'clock. Thompson had tried to hire a horse ? day before, to go to Douglas hut did not succeed, att boarded with Thompson. They left Mil villa about sk. and returned about midnight. The distance from ilville to Cummings's is 10 or I ] miles When arrestthe next morning they gave contradictory accounts of lere they had been the night before It was proved it there bad formerly been a difficulty between Cumngs and Tbompion, and that Thompson had aince, reatedly threatened to be reveuged on Cumoungs; someles adding "if he lived long enough." Tie defennts hsd never been able to account lor themselves, duig the space of time which intervened, after leaving ?tavern at 0 o'clock, till they returned to Milville at doight, the distance being l>ut 7 or 8 miles, and the rse having the appearance of having been very hard iven. Thompson is 34 years of age, Pratt about 31. | lev were defended The case was jiven to the jury Thursday evening, in an able and impartial charge j inn Chief Justice 8h?w. They were out all night, and the morning returned verdict of guilty against lompson, hut were unable to agree on any verdtet in j i case of Pratt.

It appear* that the Morris Canal Company, a corporation of the State of New Jersey, being proceed for money last *pring, proposed to make a loan of $700 000, and in order to induce New York capitalists to take it, agreed to pay 7 per cent interest,when by the laws of Now Jersey ,? per cent only is allowed to be given and received!

We also understand that the stockholders also oontemplate dissolving the present company, and to sail all tha real and paraonal estate of the concern, which are not aetually necessary appendages to the canal, and also aall the canal itself in sections. It is the opinion of some of the stockholders that the large and aubatantial dock, water right and other property at Jerrey City alone, are worth $360,000, and that similar property belonging to the company, at Newark, ia of great and rapidly increasing value. It ia estimated that a sum sufficiently largo can be realized from the sale af On canal in short sections and its boats and other property, to pay the stockholders $15 perahare, even in the event of the present debt of the company not being adjudged usurious and ordered to be cancelled.
