It baa beau our habit lor some years past to int"?rl in this journal, for the edilieation of our readers, the state 01 mo European teeiing to. wards tho United States, o* it is reflected fey the public journals of that part of tho world. We hav.. -oo, appended to them such remaiks of our own as we thought necessary. Tho good results flowing from this plan cannot be overestimated. It gives our readers an insight into the feeling of Europeans towards Amorie ins, towards their government and institutions, and brings the minds of the two people into close communion und contact. We publish in this day's paper another batch of foreign extracts, which we have taken from English, I'ish, German and English-Colonial l -'pcrs. Tho war of Mexico is, of course, the most prominent topic on vrhich they debate; b~t it will 60 perceived that the tarnf, our foreign reI Hons, our domestic and iore <n commerce, our national caieer, and other subjects,have occupied the attention of the writeis, as well. A majority of them a^ree in viewing the war, as one of agression and conquest, commenced sol- ly fur the purpo?e of ebtaining possession of tiie long coveted and fertile lan is of Northern Mexico, but ihat before it is concluded, rignt wilj? triumph over m'ght, and the invading army bo cut up in detail. The wish in this case is father to the thought. These silly writers exhibit a woful ignorance of our resources, power, and ability to carry on n war; and throwing these all overboard, they lush to the desired conclusion, and would fain make their reader- bcliev? that the United Stntt s are not only defeated now, but that we cannot survive it. Silly fools as they are, they had better "save their breath to cool their porridge," than waste it in defaming the best friends they have in the world. ,\ ra^ng m large a mass of illiberality and prejudice, we Hud an aiticle in the Liverpool Chronicle, which we likewise insert in to-day's paper, which is like an oacis in the desert. This otio really speak* of us with some favor, it even woes so far as to state, " that of the itiperior pluck oi our brethren of the Anglo Saxon raee, we have as little doubt as ever; and if the aiTdir were to be decided by one grand battle, we would still back them against any odds which their opponents could bring against them"?but ut ihe sune time, it double whether General Tayior's prospects are better improved by his rect nt exploits. We have frequently stated that the tone of the European press towards the United States, is very different from what it was a few years ago. The more we read the more it is apparent, and we should not be surprised if it should become quite favorable in the course of a very few years. Notwithstanding this, the leading journals ot Europe, as Mr. Hennett stated in his recent letter, are corrupt, ami wholly under the control of the monarchical governments. The change, however, will be produced by the force of public opinion?by lho progress of republicanism throughout Europe. While we give the remarks of the English press oil our war with Mcxico, it is as well to present our readers wi'h the views of a distinguished English statesman, delivered in the British Parliament some sixteen years a^o, by the Right Hon. William Hoskisson, who was one ol tlie brightest ol the Canning Ministry, and whose views on political economy, A:o., were regarded as au. thority, and are cited as such to this day in reference to the future poliey of this country. On the 29th of NHy, 1830, he presented a petition from the traders of Glasgow, London, Manchester, and other places in the United Kingdom, praying the British Government to enterpose its power to prevent tha repetition of attacks on Mexico, proceeding l'rom the Island of Cuba, before the independence of Mexico had been acknowledged by Old Spain. These attacks, it appears, had caused great injury to the British, who carried on a considerable commerce with Mexico. The following were his remarks:? * But. sir. it thare are great political interest* which should induce ui to enileavr r to maintain to 9|>ain her Cesent sovereignty am pos^rsuon 01 L uba ami rorto ico.iheie or* other political consi'.eratioi.s which make it not lei* important ? i! possible, still more important? that Mexico should settle into a state of internal peace anil tra> quilli'y. and of entire and secure independence. If the United States have declared that they cannot allow the l?land of Cuba to belong to any maritime power in Kurope. Spain excepted, iui her can Kngland, as the first of those maritime powers ?I say it fearlessly, becans* I feel it strongly ? suffer the United States to bring under their dominion s greater poitivxi of the shores ot the ( ulf of M< xico tli n that which they now possess IVithiu the lust twenty-seven years thev have become m?st?rs ol all the shores of that gull from the Point of Honda to the river Sabine, including the mouths of the Mississippi and other grext riveia, the port of New Orleans, and the valuable and secure harbors of Florida; and. within those few days, we lieur of their intention ol forming a naval statiou and urseual at the islands of the D-> Tortiigas, a commai ding position in the Unit-stream bawajo Florida and Cuba With all this extent of coast and is andi. we know, further, that designs are entertained. and daily acted upon ?I will not say by the present Soverntneul ol the United States, but, notoriously, by 10 people?to get possession ol the fertile and extensive Mexican proviuca of Texas. To borrow an expression of o deceased statesman of that country, " 'he whole people cf America have thrir eye" upon that province They look to all the country between the nvet Sabine ?nd tho river Bravo del Norte a* a territory that mnst, ere long, belong to their I'niou. Thoy have alto, I bolieve, that same eye upon some of the western coast ol Mexico, possessing valuable ports in the Oulf of California. Should they obtain these districts, the independence of Mexico, 1 will venture to say, will be no better, or more secure, than that of the ('reek Indians, or any other Indian triho now living within th? circle o( tile present recoguixed limits of the United States; and the Uulf of Mexico will become as much a part of their wi'.itj a* the ulack no4 wni ones ot the waters or Turkey, or as the channel which separates KngUnd from Inland may be considered a* part of the waters of the Uahed Kingdom.

I went uux JtalUn last night, and beard Grisi, Mirio, and tlie whole troupe in II Pirata. Grisi, 1 think, is changed since I heard her, four years Siro, an<l not for the better. She is decidedly jxtttt. mid that i* the general opinion here. The lirst night she appeared for this season, they were afraid they could not continue the Opera, tbe applause was so little, and th* frigidity of the audience so great. Grisi is now, I think, sufficiently pout to visit the United States or Russia, those j semi-barbarous and half civilized countries, as the diUrtanti call them here, where, they say j the great artists generally visit, when their po- ' ularity is on the wano here in the metropolis ? But that is not the case, because some of the him uiiisis iiiivo visueu our country 111 be very ; height of their popularity here. I could men- 1 tion many. The beau mondr is in daily expectation of some new goddess of song from Italy, as that is the mus cal school for all Europe. Mario, I think, has very much improved, (if there was any room for it,) and truly may be called the "prince of teuors." When ho sings, the silence ol the house is death-like, and at the close, my heaven ! what applause ! They have a very line tenor at the Acudumit Itrpal, Bettini; but after hearing . Mario, it spoils one lor other singer*. The Italian Operalloitsepiesentsa very splendid appearance: ! all the ladies are most tastefully dressed, and almost every laxly wears a bouquet in her breast, infctead of in her hand. It is not, as yet, thr high lasliionablo season, nor will it be until thcr two Chambers open. At ' that time, all the distinguished persons wi I have returned to Paris?the talons become crowded? ; the balls are given, and the theatres present crowded displays of beauty and fashion. I have Been another of the celebreties here, Carloita Gnsi. She has a great deal of graco arid utility, ur.d a pleasing smile. There are some who prefer her to Fanny Ellsler, but I am not one of those. I have never seen one to please ' me as much as she did. Everything she did wait j so neat, so perfect, and so beautiful; and then ! that smile, which drew down such thunders of applause. I have heard it said by some persons, that it was only necessary for her to come on the I stage and smile, to till a house. None can sur- J pass Fanny Ellsler in her peculiar style. Kerlmz. the art at comnnipr. hrinos out ne*t i Sunday, lor the first time, his new composition, ' called the "Damnation of Faust." He finished, it last summer at Prague, that romantic capital. ) of Bohemia. They gay that the last bars were composed during a thunder storm, when he had to take shelter in a epictrit, in one of the by streets, on the banks of the Moldan. Berlioz is j 1 quite celebrated here as a composer, in the Satanic school; and also, 1 am told, he is charming in society, being himself considered as a mixture, i < in equal proportion, of Mephistophiles and Faust. ( Berl.oz was the person who brought out Leopold < do Meyer's " Marche Marocaine" in Paris, ar- ' rangnd for four hundred instruments. It had immense success; also h? " Marche d'Isly" in Vienna, which created a great furor. I suppose the next will be his American airs. Only think of hearing " Yankee Doodle" and " Hail Columbia," with four hundred instruments. I Lear ( that all Da Meyer's compositions are sought after i very much in Europe. lie is considered here as one of the finest composers of the day; and certainly his compositions are far belore Lixt in vi^or, liieioay aim genius, ine compositions 01 Lizc ace somewhat incomprehensible; they soem to be nil prelude and very little melody. They | produce no effect, except when played by Jiim?elf. Hit great popularity seems to have been partly acquired by his eccentricity of manner in 1 society. 1 understand he has just gone IO Constantinople, to rouse the Turks from their lethargy. 1 went last evening to tho Optra Comiqtu, and heard some very good music. The theatre is very pretty, somewhat smaller than the Park Theatre, but seemed mostly attended by the middling classes, with uot much display of dress. In the next seat to me, I discovered one of our marcluinds from Biden Baden, dressed off like Kigolette, with her German beau beside her. After looking at me lor some time, she could stand it no longer. Said she in broken English, " Don't yeu know me"! don't you recollect mel" " No!" said I, " I have not that pleasure." " Ah!" said she, " you must recollect the lady who was fond of yaur little boy, and who i used to show him all the pictures at Baden."? " Ab! yes," said 1, " I do remember you now ; and am surprised to see you here." She said she came here to lay in a stock of new year presents and bon-bons for the <5rand Duke and his family. ' "His Serene Highness," said she, "is a great friend of mine, and also the Grand Duchess Stephanie." The rest of the house seemed to be the same kind of people?half Hebrews, half Christians; though the English say there are but few Christians in France, and none at all in Paris. But 1 can say with the old poetic thought, " Paris, with all thy faults, 1 love thee still;'! for the Parisians are the most charming people in the world, except the Vttnnoitt, and they are a riehgtitlul people?hospitable, guy and kind?at least, so I have found them. 1 shall have a bundle of news to give you in the next letter; and il this one does not please, why you can just put it in the lire. 1 am, dear madam, Your guardian ango), Henhibtta.

Falsehoods of the Mexicans. d(C. ?fcc. dec. We have received by the arrival of the packet ship Norma, Captain Ellis, irom Havana, very late dates Irom Mexico. The steamihip Clyde arrived at Havana on the 7th instant, with advfces from Vara Cruz to the 1st. instant, inclusive. The Mexican Government had Kivcn bonds for a loan of ."Sr2,000,000, divided as follows: - ,000,000 from the Archbishop of Mexico ; $100,000 from the Bishopric ot Puebla; $250,000 from that of Guadalajara; $170,000 from Michoacan; $100,000 from Oajaca, and $80,000 from Durtyjgo. News was received at the English Consul's office in Vera Cruz on the 1st. instant, from San j Luis Potosi, that a brigade of about one thousand men frotn the American at my, had deserted, toith arms and baggage, to the f-rces utuler Santa Anna. Through the same channel it was staled that a horrible typhus fever raged in the American army, and tl^is couplnd with the numerous desertions, bad compelled General Taylor to retire from Sol- ! tillo to Monterey ! These last two items are of course of equal truth, or rather of equal falsity. The British man-of-war Daring entered the harbor of Vera Cruz as the Clyde was leaving, and stated that the steamer United States, after having landed 500 troops at Tampico, was lost on the bar; and that another steamboat not having been heard from in 14 days, was also lost. The former of the two is undoubtedly mistaken for the " Neptune," of whose shipwreck we have already given account, and the latter i? the "Sea," which ground- \ ed, but has been saved. The Diario de Aruos, I from which wo translate this news, states that | #150,000 was lost with the steamer. Another Mexican misapprehension. A letter received from San Luis Potosi, on ! which some reliance may be placed, shows tho i preparations making in that city for its defence. 1 " Mr diar Broth**?Yon will wish to learn how w* re situated here with regard to the ba'burous invader* , of our rail. Yesterday they entered Saltillo. and have alio . taken posso?sion ef Tampico. What our own fortune mav bo. wo cancot tell ; but we have here, without doubt, 35 000 men, 61 piece* of artillery, 24 pounder*, in first-iHte order, an incredible abundance of powder, ball* and all other munition* of war. Thin I know from persoml inspection. Tbero ha* alio arrived here a body of 200 men. blackimith* and carpenter*, an !

The gallant exploit of the boat's crew which i burnt the Mexican cruiser under tho very guns of St. Juan d'Ulloa is mentioned,and the success ac- I counted for?Arst, that when seen from the watch- ' towers of St. Miguel, the American boat was sup- i posed to be from the English steamer, and occupi- i ed in some night duty; and second, because the 1 commander of the port knew that it was an enemy's boat, but did not wish to notice it. Both rea- : sons very satisfactory. Four American seamen were brought into Vera 1 Crnz as prisoners on the 28th ult., having been : shipwrecked and driven ashore Their names, ' nor that of the vessel they belonged to, ore not given. Sr. D. Antonio de Haro y Tamariz has resigned the seat of Secretary of State, and been temporarily succeeded by Sr. Juan Almonte. Sr. Pedro , Anaya ha* been elected by the General Legis'.a- ! ture Governor of the district of Mexico. General Salas has published another decree, more strictly demanding the enforcing of those , hitherto made, relative to dealings with Ameri- j cans. By it, any goods brought into a town , captured by our troops, renders the importer lia- ! ble to a total confiscation of his property, and any seaport in our possession is ordered to be entirely avoided so far as the sale or delivery ol any kind of goods is concerned. Cam peachy, which on the 23d of Oct. hadpr> nounced against the government of Yucatan, on the 25th of Nov. concluded articles of arrangemei.t with her. The Government agreeing to pay not only their ewn expenses incurred in levying troops, See., but agreed also to pay the whole expenses incurred by the insurgents themselves. The Yucatanos were daily in expectation of being blockaded by the American vessels of war. Flour in Merida was held nominally at $25 per barrel, but holders were looking for a further adTrance in case of the blockade taking place. Tbe commerce of the country wns at a stand. The U. S. storeship Erie, Lt. Com. Turner, left Monterey on the 20th of September, for Pa- i nama. one iinu as passengers to id hi piacc, j. P. Morris, bearer of despatches Irom the Commodore of the Pacific squadron; Mid. Hackson, Dr. C. P. Oukley, and Mr. Kaght, all of the U. S. Navy.

Sept. 10 ] The U. 8 frigate Congress, bearing the broad pennant of Commodore Stoek'on, returned from the south on ] Tuesday evening the 15th in?t.

The papers were occupied almost exclusively with statements relative to tha expedition of Gen- Flores against Ecuador. Don Felipe Pordo has been appointed ambassador to Chili. From Santiago, in the latter country, we have dates to the 27th October; we find nothing of interest. Mokky for thk Voutttkkhs.?At the meeting held on Tuesday evening at Mechanics' Hall, in aid ol the volunteers for Mexico, a committee was appointad to mako the necessary arrangements for the " collection and disbursement of the funds requisite to insure the comf-rt and support of the several regiments of New Yo? volunteers, until they are fully mustered into the service of tho government. Thia committee consists of Messrs." A. H. Miikle, Mayor; M. H. Grinnell, Wm. F. Havemeyer, J. K. King, IVm. McCullogh, Kobt. H. Morris, E. K. Collins, C. W. Lawrence, Stephen Whitney, Moses Taylor, John J. Boyd, James McCullogh, and Elijah Purdy. To tnese gentlemen, there lore, or to any ot tbem, tee liberal hearted may entrust their donations. Let no man say he is too poor to give such an amount as he would like to offer. Let our hard handed, open hearted countrymen, who feel a desire to do what they can for this cause, hand in their contributions; let them give their $6, their 98, their 91, their fifty cents?it will make them leel good when th<*y hear, by-and-by, from these troops, that they arrived at their destination comfortably provided. We are suie that the volunteers themselves would rather know that the necessary amount was raised from among many of their countiymen, than to feel that the purses of a lew supplied the requisite aid. But the wealthy are not to be depriv?d of the pleasure of giving largely, or relieved from the responsibility of making a respectable contribution. They can do it, and will not, we dare say, be backward in showing to the Common Council how different the people feel

from those who profess to represent them, at the City Hall. Now is the time lor the Park orators to prove how sincerely they felt the sentiments which they expressed at the time of the great meeting last June. There ware wealthy men among them. They talked well?they will, of course, act well m the present emergency. In North Carolina, where the war was said to be so unpopular that an extra number of the President's message was ordered to be circulated among the people, a generous spirit has arisen, and a resolution has been introduced, in the legis- ' lature of that State, by Mr. Gillara, a distinguished whig, appropriating #10,000, for the equipment and outfit of the North Carolina regiment of volunteers. In Abbeville, S. C., a town numbering in population less than one of our wards, #2000 was raised; and in Columbia, another town in the same State, between $2000 and $3000 were collected for similar purposes. Good examples are not vanting, and now that we have waited , to be led in this matter by other State* and districts, it only remains for us to vindicate our reputation, by showing ihat our northern sun does not shine less warmly upon Americsin hearts than does the southern, and that, though not so soon aroused, yet, when once active, we are fully equal ; to any requirements which the cause of our country may make. That our purse strings are not so closely drawn, but that they can be relaxed when the time'of need arrives. That time has come, and we shall see presently how its demands are to be met. 'u P. S.
