Wo think all will admit that there never has j appeared a more interesting sheet than this. It is in fact a daguerreotype history of the United j States, and ?if, all incidents of importance that have happened for the year f ast. As a pictorial histoiy of th?Ut.iied States for the year 1846, it is an admirable tiling to put in the hands of children and young poisons, paiticularly in the holidays, when they expect something of the kind. Agents will please send in their orders. The Do I ops In Congress -Tlic Short Session ?liuMinru on. Hand. More than one w eek of the twelve allotted by the constitution to this session of Congress has passed away, and ns yet nothing done. Uf all the important measures presented for consideration, j not the first movement has been made towards perfecting any ol them. We expect this session will be like all"others, the first eight or ten weeks will be used up in debate, and the whole business of the tsrm will bo crowded into the last two or four weeks, and the acts passed sent as usual into the world hall made up, and so filled with defects that a repeal will be immediately called lor. Tho most important business of the session wil) be the devising of ways aud means to carry on the war with Mexico, bhould it be deemed best to prosecuto hostilities vigorously, or should it be necessary to perfect the plan of attack recently adopted by the war department. In that event, men and money will be in great demand; and, from present appearances, the first will be about a* difficult to raise as tho last. It is anticipated by many that the two governments will soon open negotiations in relation to j the questions at issue, and that peace is nearer at hand than appearances would warrant the b?- j lief. This, however, it very doubtful, as every thing depends upon the policy Santa Anna intends pursuing, and the success ho may meet with in preparing the minds of the Mexican people for an immediate cessation of hostilities. We have our doubts as to the honesty of Santa Anna, in any professions lie may make or has made of peaceable intentions towards the United States; and such is the impression we have of him as a military lender, and f the Mexican people generally, that we have aot the slightest expectation ol peace being obtained upon honorable terms, in any other way than at the point of the ?word, and over the ruins of th'ir principal towns. In relation to the modifications of the tariff, everything, at present, is involved in much uncertainty. The admiaistration arc in favor of a duty oi twenty-five per cent, upon tea and coffee, and it is barely possible that the party In Congress may adopt the suggestions of the execu tive and lay the proteased duty merely for reve- I nue, provided it is understood to be but a temporary thin#- We say barely possible, for the thing it hardly probable. Many members ol the democratic party in both bouses of Congress ar* bitterly oppostd to the least duty upon these articled, upon the ground that it would increase the cost to the consumers, and in that cr-ae fall heavily upon the poorer classes. This impression will hare very great influence, perhaps sufficient t? prevent the measure being adopted.? It would l>e easier to put a d?ry upon coal and iron, as the duty in that case would not, it might be argued, como so directly out of the lower c lasses. Nothing has yet been done in relation to this thing, and until the question is opened and debate commences, we shsdl be in the dark. Our impression is, that neither tea nor coffee will be taxed although we have repeatedly proved that the > price to the consumers would not be enhanced, and that it is the most feasible source of revenne now at the command of the government. ssntary Bat-Italian's Nmw Csninlsr Hjrutem. The present consular system of the United States has been the subject of severe animadver sion and censure, tor a number of years past, by the mercantile community, as well as by the press, In the principal Atlantic cities. Formed as It was while the commerce of the country wnt> tri- . iling and of little importance, and while our rela nuus wuii uuior paxi? 01 mo world were not so intricate and extensive as they now are, any apology for a consular system might have answered our purpese. But now that we have attained 1 commercial importance, second to no other nation in the world, and while every sea, bay and harbor in the habitable world, is frequented bf our navigators, and while we have become M well known as any other country, and onr relations extending to all, the old system ! under which we have so long acted is found to bo utterly useless, unsale and insufficient. ' In?teid of advancing our interests, and being a complete digest and manual lor the use of our ; cnusuls, it is so loose and imperfect, and requires so much labor to examine and comprehend, tha* in a majority of instances, our consuls in foreign countries, while deciding cases result ng from the , construction of treaties and international law, have been forced lo base their decisions on their own knowledge of right and wrong. It appears that during almost every session or Co igresa from the year 1908 to the present time, laws on th? subject have been made; and incredible as it may seem, no compiUnon, no digwt o them has ever been made for the use of our eonsult. In a series of articles that we published on this subject about a year since, we point. e<l out the defects of the present system, and proved tho ut'er impossibility of our consuls' adhering to the present system, when called upon to acj in their official capacity. At that time we went folly into the details, and called on Congress to take the matter in hand as soon as possible, and remedy the evils that the commercial community and the who'e country have jo lorg suiTered, in consequence ol the inadequacy of our consular system. We contrasted our *ystem, with that of England and other countiies; and proved to the satislaction of every candid man, that the United States was the worst represented country in the world. The reorganization of the old system, and the absolute necessity of systematizing it for tho use of our consuls has, we are glad to percwive, attracted the attention of Mr. Secretary Buchanan, who has within a few days, presented a new s\ ftem for tho information of Congress, a synopsis of which we gave iu yesterday's Herald.? Mr. Buchanan has evidently given tho subj. ct a great deal of attention, and appears to comprehend it thoroughly. We recommend it to the especial attention of Congress, and express a hope that they will have time to follow hisrecommen- 1 dations, and frame an entirely new system during the present session. It is a curious fact, that while all commercial nations appoint only their own subjects to represent them in foreign countries, the United Slates alone employs foreigners. There is no earthly reason for this, except it be in tha penurious policy o' the government, which does not hold oat sufficient inducement for our citizens to abandon lheir private pursuits. While other nations pay their consuls lixed sularies sufficient not only to support them comfortably, but in a manner to add dignity to their office, the United States, a country with the ability ol being more liberal than any l.uropran nation,attaches, us compensation to our consulates, in most cases, no regular salary, but leaves the consul entirely dependent on what lees he may receive from the business that cemts before him. In a majority of cases, these fees do not amount, in thr course of a year,to a sum sufficient to keep 'hern in snutf. What they make th< y make indirectly. Ainu stall of ur present consuls are merchant?; and ihe advantnges which they acquire from their official position, is the only inducement they have to aecapt the office. ' We can in this way readily account for tho fact j that almost all our consuls are foreigners. We certainly think it does not admit of question that ! uwouiu Do netter policy lor tlie United States to j appoint none but American citizens to represent their country abroad, and to pay salaries sufficient to support them with comfort and dignity. Mr. Buchanan has given this part of the subject much attention, and points out the evils ari- : sing from it as well as from other defects in our I present consular system. In fact, he has evi- ' dently examined the whole subject thoroughly and completely, and now asks Congress to pass judgment on his labors, and if it seems to them that the system he proposes is good, to adopt it, I so that for the future the duty of our consuls will be clearly and explicitly defined. The commercial men in this and other cities have a deep interest in this subject. They feel ihe evils ol the old system more than persons in any other business. They ought to make some movement as soon as possible to further the cf. forts cf Secretary Buchanan, to perfect a consu- 1 lar eystqm, adequate to the wants of the country. We suggest that they send forward petitions, and agitate tho subject while Congress rs in ' session. Nkws^from Bermuda?The Royal OazttU of nit* i tin uu., uiKcv wuiiiiiy iu iifurt uie miiuwing paragraph, which that paper states it copied from the Herald:? "It is computed tint if the mortality throughout the world were a* great aa it it among the English garrisons in Jamaica. Bermuda, Hong Kong. Madrai, Bengal, and Ceylon, the whole human raea would become extinct in the short tpace of eleven ye?r?!" A Tier expressing a proper appreciation of our ignorance as respect* its Isle, it show* conclusively that Bermuda is the healthiest place, j this side of the place where "kings never die." j We stand corrected. The following item, with regard to the man ! with the white hat, is all that we find of interest from the abused B-nnuJas. Ttie Gazette sayst? "We hare teen a .private letter from London of the 3d November, which states that the Mariner traaiport, I in which Hi< Excellency Captain Elliott was to coma to ; Bermuda, ?? detained by tho Admiralty, but would In all probability Mil in a day or two." Intkllioknce from .South Amkxica.?Tho j line vessel Isabeleta Hyne, Captain Dewiug, arrived at New Orleans 011 the 6th instant, having made a remarkably sWort passage, bringing news to the 27th Oct. She is a regular trader to Braz'l. We are obliged to our correspondents for th? following'contirmation of the news heretofore given by us. There was a probability of a change of ministry jn Brazil, on the dissolution of the Chambers, on the 5th December, and likewise that the treaty of alliance formed between Brazil and Paraguay, lor tho preservation of the integrity of their frontiers against the encroachment ot Rosas, would in\olvu Brazil m a war with Buenos Ayres. Tho Brazilian government, aware of this, were adding to their navy, having purchased a beautiful Austrian ship for $15,000, which would be arm ed. A n offer was likewise made by them for the Isabelcta Iiyne, but below her cost and value. 1 U. S. ship Indepedennce arrived on the 23d October. Th# frigate Columbia and brig Bain ! bridge had ^one to La Plata. A vessel, supposed to be the Louis ana, of 1 Richmond, was seen by the Isabrleta going into Rio on the 38th Oct. In addition to the above,we copy the following.

The partition appeared to have taken fire Irotn the outside, that is, iu the store, although there was a atove on the inside. The door waa sately locked, and required the use of axes te open it?

Police Intelligence. Pasting Counterfeit Minty ? Officers Wilson and Hepburn, of the l*th ward, succeeded last night in arresting two men called John Gilbert and John lull, wkom they detncturl in passing counterfeit bills, purporting to be on tlia Merchant's Dank of Portland, Me. It appears that officer Wilson was in the grocery store of Moore and Alloa, on th* corner ol Mott aal Bl?ecker streets, about 0 o'clock last evening, when the aacused, Gilbert, e.tereJ th* store and applied for a bottle of sweet oil, in paymeat for which h* tendered a $o bill on th* Merchants' Bank ef Portland, Maine. Mr. Allan, u|?on looking at th? bill refused to take it, remarking that it was evidently a counterfeit The accused then leit the store. However, the officer thought something was wrong, and consequently foliowed Gilbert a abort distance, when he saw him communicate | with another man, who was evidently an accomplice, and pas* along together. The officer followed, unobserved, after them, a- Aort distance, until Gilbert went into tbe drugjuore No. 716 Broadway, corner of Washington Place, and there purchased a bottle ef caiter oil, and offered in payment a $6 bill, of the above description, which was taken by the clerk, William Grimshaw. and good money given*in chang*. When the accused left this store, he met his accompiice Hill in the street again and walkad along until the> came into Eighth street, where the officers made tbe arrest; and the accused parties becoming alarmed, one attempted to escape, but was retaken, and secured, the other immediately threw something from bis parson, which was picked up bv the effi'-nrs. and found to be a roli of .the spurious or coun tnifeil $5 kills. They wore both conducted to the 16th ward station house, where, upon being "frisked" th* officers found upon th*ir persons a pair of n*w slippers, a whit* spottad black silk handkerchief, on* r*d do., a pair of suspenders. a razor, a gold pen, together with a geld watch and chain and $8.V in th* above counterfeit money. On officer Looker going into 6th street, to tli* spot where th* man weio arrested, ho discovered laying near the sidewalk iu the street, a pocket beok containing IBIriyuMO ?o ceunierieji uiui ui mtj muid uvacnimuu as the one passed, together with a certificate of the Auditor General of the State of Michigan, for the payment of $10 to Hinkln & Howe. No doubt thexe uien have pasted a number of then* bills in different parts of the city, and in all probability the above article* found upon their persons. were purchased by this conn terf.-it money. Therefore, shopkeepers who hare taken bad money of this description, will do well to call upon Justice Roome, at tl>e police office. 6th avenue, Jefferson market, and identify the individuals who passed it. j $M 77, in good money, was found on their persons, and over $200 in counterfeit $i have been recovered from them. Thus we see these chaps intended to ''shove" thii "queer" with a perfect ruth, had they not been detected and captured by the perseverance ef the above active officers, for which they deserve ranch credit.? Justice Roome committed them both to prison for examination. ji Bold Thief.? gome bold thief entered the premises No '23 Catharine street, yesterday afternoon, and carried off two black cloth dress coats and a pair of black ca*simere pants, the property ot Mr. Lane.

The uncertainty that hangi over every meve- I ment of Congreaa, keepa the public raiiid very mueb I uraettled, and ca pi talis ta harlly know what u?e to make ia of their money. The new United dtatea 6'a are aelling I below par, which look* very ominous for the liiccee* ef I sew loan of nineteen millions cf dollar*. The ad a* in- iH iatration muit have a vast deal of faith in the credit of ifl the government, to suppoae for a mement, that a large |M loan can be made at par, after the Independent Treaanry I pet goe* into full operation. The government will fiud, jjfl when it ia too late to apply a remedy, that financial mee- 'I (urea admirably calculated for period* of peso*, are not ao favorable in their operation in time of war. Every' UH thing ahould be dona in the power ef the government to relievo the money market from every eaibarraeament, and to make money aa cheap aa poaaible, for the purpeie of negotiating any loan which may b? required, eaaily, and upon favorable terma. The natare of the iodependent troaaury act ia to in creaaa the valae of money,by reducing the vohune of the currency, and at a proper period the adaption of each an MP aat would bo attended with the moat gratifying raaaltai f bat at the preeent moment we are angagefi in a war w it 1 an enemy whicn may prolong hoatilitie* beyond the anti. 1^^ cipation* of thoae n oat intimately ac^naintod with the ||b| movement, and it ia highly neceaaary that we ahould be pro pored for any financial contingency which any ariae.

From the na- I^H tare and character of their remark!, we should jadge that they were not perfectly setisfled in regard to the UH feasibility of enfotcing those provisioas of the act, and HH wish to wait for the purpose of aeeiag bow they will operate, without cctemitticg themselves either ft>r or ||H against It looks as theagh they had their misgivings as |^H to its working ia time of war ss wall as they aatiaipatod 'a time ol peace, a ad as theagh they looked more to coosisteacy than to the a eptlaa of those measures the exigencies of the conatry required.
