IVEW ' YORK HERALD.1 ? r - _ ??> Vor??, Turxlay, Ucccmtxr '4l>, IN#'-. (tin- Volunteer Syatem. As !u v-i the wlni> membersof Congress per- j si.-! li coiir-e of coi<(luct they have pursued itir.e tliP commencement of the present session, it is worso than useless to draw their attention to eny Cubjrct requiring legislation. Hoping, however, and expecting,that they will ere long recover t'neir reason, roll up their shirt sleeves and go to woik at the business which they were sent to the oapitol to perform, we venture to suggest that soma action is necessary hy them in regard to vo- i lunterrs for the war. Volunteering is decidedly more popular than j enlisting in the regular army, and it may seem an anomaly, that while ten, fifteen or twenty thou- j *and volunteers can be organized in this city j within one week, Uncle Sam's corporals and , sergeants are obliged to traverse our streets with arum?, ni. saun nit's, Dealing up,or ram"r scaring up, wish their execrable noise, recruits for the army, without success. However anomalous it may appear, it is never- ' theless true, and the cause is obvious. A requisi- : ti ;?i may ba made, sjy {Jr two regiments of vol-* i unteevs. Oar young men, fired with patriotism, j and animated by love of country, throw down their implements of trade or profession, and enrol themselves as defenders or asserters of that country's rights. The work-shop or the office is vacated, ai.d the drill room resorted to for discipline, j A'ra>gement* are immediately ir. ide for settling domestic uff.i rs?the ir minds are bent on glory j and gunpowder. Nothing occupies their attention , hut w;.r, glory, and heroic deeds. All civil matters being u .o-td of, th?y put in their poekcts ail the ;iu>m y tliry tan taise, and cageily ar.d anxiously : await the tune when they shall be mustered ; into service. Alter a short time, seven of ten Companies have been raised, and the members of these seven companies have expended perhaps t -"ir I:<*<t dollar in eqn pp ng and providing thems.-l wi h articles necessary for their comfort. . Anm iiii-y g>* poor, and become dissatisfied with tli- 1 lay ; their means are perhaps exhausted, .iiui tiiev are losing their time. Murmuring is heaul -difs.itisf^ction increases, and, like a eonra^io:i, it spreads. Other young men, willing to wiii not do so, because they see no reason why ti.'.-y slioui?l abandon their civil pursuits and re m 11 tin indefinite time before drawing pay from u netr ; mid the result is, perhaps, that the panie* w li, with hard work, be filled, t i v v i-?, t'.i? government cannot pay .fit tint : they are mustered into the ser\ of tti i' United Sates, avid tliey cannot bo mmt red into service until the requisition is fulfilled. If,therefore, the law were changed, bo that volunteers would draw pay from the time of their ofter- , ing th ir servict s, instead ol from the time of their bei. g mustered into service, one hundred volunteers would flock to the standard of their country where one goes now. Several of the States and mincipul cities have Ween put to great expense in equipping and supporting their citizens after volunteering, on account ol this defect in the law. T^iia they were obliged to do, to sustain their c'.i-.racter and reputation; but there is no reason, why tliey should be put to this additional expense i >r the f-deral government. We hope that Congress will look into this matter, utid 111 its wisdom asiume all the expenses that h ive bee i incurred by our cities and States in equipping and supporting volunteers, and that the present law will be so modified that volunteers w 11 be entitled to compensation from the moncent they enter the ranks, without reference to the ,mo when they are actually mustered into tarvice. Something of this kind will prevent a great deal of d ffisult. ________ Qoadranollar War ?The war in New Mexico jsLk' ly to bu prosecuted something on the plan of the triangular duel, with this difference, however, that the opera'ions in which General Rear ney is en. n^ed produce a quadrangular contest, ins'ead of a three cornered fight. In the first place, the General has to fight a 1 mongrel crew ot Mexicans and Indians, knavish cut throats, who hnil war as a piece of good luck, because it enables tliem to carry oat their predatory designs under the protcctiou of a flag. They sire never to be deterred liom shooting men, that they may obtain their valuables; but still a flag ia a matter of convenience, and as they are likely to be better rewarded by the plunder of Americans than Mexicans, they ndopt the flag of the latter. The next corner from which opposition is to be seen, is the one occupied by the Texans, who are indignant at the idea of a territorial government being established at Santa Fe. The papers throughout Texas generally echo this sentiment. They say that? "Sian'B Fe ia included within the boundaries of Texsa, a> Ui.i down and defined in the law ot 1816; that it rightfully belong* to her, and to bar alone; and any atteir.pt to rttabluh a territorial or other government within those limit*, i* an inn ingement of her rights as a sovereign State From the time the Santa Fe expedition atarted from Austin in 1811 ? in lact.fiorr 18M ? up to the present time, 'l'exaa h?a claimed that pert oI New Mexico lying eaat ol the Rio Grande, aa within her limita; and that the United SU>?? hua no rigtit to set up any form of government over a portion ol the State of Texas." Th?a? n? it>r Inilleta tlinnir'i not mure anaerimis in their immediate effects as the leaden ones which are sent from Indian rifles, have their irn- j pcutance, notwithstanding, and may prove as sellout, ultimately, as the bowie knife or scalping blade of the yellow faces or their red skinned companions. The ni-xt angle is the position assumed by ike , whtgs ot the United States, who oppose the war, and declare the invasion of California an outrage, j With all this opposition, General Kearney pur ies the even tenor of his way; torms his territorial government, fights his Indians, receives the abuse or commendation of the press, as the case may be, and is content with doing his duty. The course pursued by the whip, in this matt er, is one calculated to make them unpopular with the Texans, who, almost to a man, will look upon thoseho oppose a war with Mexico,as their worst friends. They remember their struggles with Mexico, they remember their butohered brethren, and they will be likely to forget that our | war with Mexico is aught else than another act ; in the same drama ; and, consequently, the par- ! ty wiiich is found opposing a war with Mexico, will be likely to find fe>v friends in the new j 8; ate. Thus, out of this small war with Mexico, seve- 1 ral smaller ones will arise. Agricultural Statistics of trk Unit*? Statbs ?It will be perceived by one of our Washington correspondent's letter* in to-day'g Herald, that in conaeqaenee of the refusal ol the Senate to make the necessary and usual appropriations to enable the Commissioner of Patents to publuh his ieguUr annual report of the statistic* of the , ountry, we are thi* year to be without that report. We are much *urpri*ed at thi*. We are surprissd, because the Senate as well as the people of the United State*, must be aware of the immense advantages thi* rrport haa always conferred on the country, on our merchants, our politi- | e .ans, and, in fact, on all classes of our citiien*. I The Senate cannot bat be aware that the stop- j page of this work will throw the country into a state i of chao*. Our merchants base their speculations and ventures on the data it furnishes, and our | state*mon look to it as authority tor legislating for ( the future by the experience of the past. How t can they legislate without official data to guide > the in 1 We trust and believe that the Senate will reoousider their action in this respect, and make the neoessary appropriations foy furnishing the report a* usual. . Who m Fciurnl?Tiik Mkcican Navy -In the Htrald of Saturday, appeared n letter from our special correspondent at Havana, fram which the lullowing is an extract:? ?' The agent of the Mexican government is (till liars; he ho* oot teen able to depose of s (ingle privateer licenie; in fact he finds it no go Information nus been received hera, that the Mexican government had made over to a Frenchman by the name of Rebaud, the two men of war laving inAlvarado. the St. Anna and Maxicano. Rebaud left Mexico with the expectation of getting them to tea under the French flag, taking them round Cape Horn, and urm them aa privateer* to cruiie against our commerca in the Kast Indies and Pacific, but he is not like)}- to accomplish his purpose. We have obtained some information respecting this Kebaud, which w? think will interest our readers. He is a Frenchman by birth, and a seaman by profession. On leaving the French uavy, (wherein, we beliave, he served with the rank of Lieutenant,) he entered that of Mexico?then struggling hard to achieve her independence.? Rebaud was ot great service to his new employer, and was rewardad by them with th<v rank ofCommodori?a rank he still holds. When, a few years back, the people o! Yucatan and To* i,.,?i ?? ^juuvuuocu a^uuioi IUC vciuiai ^uvciir ment, Rebaud deserted the latter, and lent hi* powerful aid to the revolted provinces. Though not a man of first rate talent, his decision . is great, his courage unquestionable ? Not long ago, he fought under peculiar circumstances, a duel with Sentmanet, whilom Governor of Tabasco. Sentmanet, who was a noted duelist, challenged Re.band to fight with pistols, both combatants to fire, as the phrase rtin, "at , discretion." The/ met, and both duellists advanced to within a lew paces of each oth*r, without pulling trigger; when Sentmanet was so appalled < at the firm bearing of Rebaud, that he lost i his usual preseu-je of mind, fired at random, and run away, without waiting ?for his adversary's fire.| Rebaud is about fifty-two years of age, above the middle height, and very compactly made. There is a good deal oi the filtbuttitr, or freebooter, in his appearance. He has only one arm, having last the other in <t land fight, not in a ?ea light. This tend fight occurred, if we remember aright, in 1880. Santa Anna hav- ; ing in that year pronounced against the government, was attacked in the neighborhood Df Jalapa, by a certain General Echwerni, and , sustained so complete a defeat that only one in twenty of hts army escaped Rebaud being at Vera Cruz at the time, Santa Anna started on his ill.ftitPfl f- *ru ilitintn fli^nmnnni^H him fn thf* ? fight,and there received the wound which depriv- | cdliim of his arm. , i Rebaud has a brother in the city of Mexico, j who partite* the useful occupation of milkman, md to whom he bears no resemblance, whether n the inner or outer man. The milkman has a (ood deal of the milk of human kindness in his :ompo?ition?the commander has none. We agree with our Havana}correspondent, hat Rebuild in not likelj"to succeed ip his piratical expedition. At the satfte time, it will benesessary for our naval officers to watch the , Frenchman closely. 1 Collision, at Ssa?Satkty or Vaaasi.a and I Lives.?The schooner Laura Jane, reported in ' Saturday's paper; and supposed to be lost from jeing in contact with the brig Savannah, hence [br Savannah, has, we are happy to learn, arriv- i sd a Norfolk. \ The captain, mate and three of the crew, who 1 were reported drowned at the time of the acci- | ient, have arrived at Savannah in the brig S., j iiaving at the time the vessels were in collision | jumped on board that vessel. ! The Laura Jane was bound lrom this port to Cape Biscayenne, with materials for building a light-house, and had on board twelve passengers, captain, mate, and five hands. Sly? sustained but little injury, loss of bulwarks monkey rail, anchor, &c. TheS. received none. The Savannah had her main channels carried away, some ol her chain bolts broken, and sus- I taiaed other damage. TfV4? I\1y\tnfnw nt flnM/iov?? 11 ia urtH^rttrwl that Gen. Sam Houston, the hero of San Jaointo, Gen. Husk, and Messrs. Pilsbury and Kaufman, 1 Df Texas, will arrive in this city to-day or to mor- I row, and remain until after the first of January, | for the purpose of witneMing the manner in which New Years is celebiated in Gotham. We 1 hop* that our public officers will show them the respect they deserve. Magnetic Telegraph ?Wo n that the new wires for the telegraph between this city and Boston, have all been put up, with the exception of a short distance between Boston and Worcester. week will see the lightning again at work. News from Boston.?We are indebted to Phillips A: Co. for Boston papers of yesterday morn' J ulcali Sr. Oeokok'i Society.?The grand concert given in aid of the fundi of this society last evening, at the 1 Tabernacle, was attended by some 1,600 persons, not- | withstanding the very unfavorable weather. Of th performance* it it impossible to speak at length, or iD . detail?the late hour and the piece* played, to the number of twenty-, forbid. The grand novelties of the eve- , ning were the appearance of Herr Dorn, hi* flrst in thj* city, and the yonng Apolloneon*. Of th* farmer, suffice to *ay, th't (hough all the mutie possible, per&ap*, to be attained from a French horn was achieved, yet the attendant mechanical difficulties can never be suffi. ciently appreciated by the public to counterbalance ita mesgerness of compaaa and ita monotony of tone Kyle, in the duet, did admirably; we listened to bii flute with even more than usual pleasuie Of the Apolloneoni, we can only aay that they . did aa we propheaied they would ; Ihey achieved a great triumph. Little Anne Maria Cole, by her performance on the piano of the airs from " II Croc la to," called from the audieace repeated and prolonged burata of applauae, in which oar mo at distinguished artists and the grvat Here himself, who was present, heartily joined. The aoio on the violin, performed by Henry Bullock, was one of the gem* of the evening, and also great ly applauded. Madame Ablamowici sang aa aha always does, well, exquisitely, and in her laat solo gained a rap. turous encets. Miss Northall sang her first piece, aa we thought.in bad voice, but in her last was delightfully aweet and pleaaiog, so mueh so, as also te be compelled to repeat, in spite ef the lata hour. " God save the Queen" was sung with energy, If not with accuracy, at the close of the svening, the audience rising and joining in the chorus. The artieta who kindly volunteered their eervkea last evening, and Mr. Loderparticularly, who has been the main spring of the whole affair, deserve well of the public. We can assure them, that an evening spent for charitable purposes will not be to them no craning Ion.

Wew York Pilots, f be Maw Vork licensed pilot* were, a few Jay* since, | unqualifiedly .lonouuced In an articla which appeared in tha Journal off Commerce, in the following term*, vix:? "That they are the wont ptloh we have, for nine-tenthi of ; all thed igatters occur in their hande." The following extract from the memorial of the Board of Underwriter* to Cong ran, will at onca clearly show the entire falsity of the abova statement "Your memorialitU desire on this occasion explicitly . to assure yonr honorable bodies thai they neither deny Ike competency, nor are they diepoted to undervalue the merit, nor do they urieh in any reaped to interfere with the j interetti, or limit the empl.,ymtnt of the \ew Vork Piloti; on the rantral y, the undereifned deiire that the character and ektll of thai moit ute/ul and valuclle clots of citirent should become identified with the interest and reputation of our port." Though the preceding extract from the memorial of , the Board of Underwriters bears ample testimony of the character and skill of tha New York licensed pilots, and u a flat contradiction of the Journal of Commerce, yet unfortunately we are in fact compelled to impeach tha testimony thus offered,to convict the editor of the Journal fey showing that the acte of the Board of Underwriters are not only wholly .inconsistent, but are at war with their published assertions. While the Journal prides it. self in publicly defaming tha character of the pilots, the underwriters extol them to the highest extent, clearly proving that the editor of the Journal is not entitled to credit, though unfortunately the pilots are obliged to dis credit their awn professed friends, by showing that their public representations and professions cannot be recon- ? ciled with their conduct?like they who "male* the promise to the ear to bnak it to the heart." What art their profeitioni??Admitting the competency and merit of the New York pilots, they disclaim the "wish in any retpect to inltrfere with the interetts or limit tht employment'' of that mast useful and valuable class of 1 citizens. What art their acti'l?Can there ba anything mora pro. 1 scriptive and inconsistent with their professions than the following published circular? We ask net that tha character of \he warfare against us be judged by any representations of our own, but by the conflicting statements of our persecutors alone. To what irresisti" ble conclusions must the mind of arery just and candid man come, who will compare tha preceding statements with the following circular? Let tuch men enly answer i as It is not our wish to characterize It New York, , 184-. ' Sir: In consequence of the repeal of all laws relative ! to pilots, by the Legislature of this State, the subscribers \ were appointed by the Chamber of Commerce, and the Board ot Underwriters of this city, commissioners for the ( examination, licensing and general regulation of pilots for the port of New York, by way of Sandy Hook, and having licensed a numt-er of competent persons, the 1 commissioners best leave to inform you tlut they are pre- 1 pared to furnish pilot* for all outward-bound veasels, upon 1 application at their office, No. 70 Well street. The commissioners wish to impress on all merchants niju iii|'iuaaioia I lie imjiui inuti- ui uieir lunuui cu*W|"er? ktiou, to enable the board to fulfil the object* for which It tin* been organized ; and they feel that", as they are g?' ninz their seivicrs gratuitously, they have a strong claim in aifcinf for such ca operation : ana thev, therefore, beg leave to call your attention to the 6th article of the Constitution, as adopted by the Chamber of Commerce >nd Board of Underwriters, recommending ' that no vet- < iel receive a person at pilot excepting en Kit producing a : :ertificate signed by the hoard or those issued under the j lUf hurity of the State of New Jersey. t (ft?-Office hours from 9 to 8 o'clock. Robert L. Tatlob. [Signed] Chas. H. Mabshall, Rlsskll Stt'bois, Gkoboe W. Blurt. To Captain The recommendation contained in the 6th article of the sonstitution, " tfcat no vessel receive a person as pilot, ; excepting on his producing a certificate signed by the Board, or those issued under the authority of fh? State of I Netc Jersey," was adopted, aa mast be apparent to every Inialliffeat man, solely to exclude from all employment :he New York State pilots. That section was, in our ! >pinion, purposely aimod at them, and steadfastly and leliberately ha* the proscription been practised; yet ^ongresi and the public are entreated to believe, that :he underwriters and their associates have ne "wish in my respect to interfere with the interests or limit the employment of the New Vork Pilots." The merchants of this city well know how faithfully | :his ediot has been executed, and how tho poor pilot 1 who has safely brought their ships Into port, is dls- j :arded from their service, when applying to take them to sea, without the slightest pretence of mismanagement ! Br misconduct being attributed to him. Criminal Justice would long sinoe have been visited i upon the pilots, had they dared to combine for any pur- 1 pose, and the merchants be made the subjects of their COraDiDBUOH. x ei wno wiu xirBuaie 10 iay, auer r?auing the above circular, that we are not the victim* ef a 1 combination? And though our oppressors be rich and 1 powerful, yet are they, no leaa than the meanest, amena- 1 ble to justice. | j Witn the most unparailelod assurance hare the just righta of a whole claia of citixena been invaded, and while the pilots and those depending on their exertion* hi their aevefe and arduous calling, have been moat cruelly persecuted, for daring to resist encroach ment, yet still the war of injustice is waged against them, and to their doers is laid the misfortune of every disaster, whether happening under their charge or not Stale complaints are newly raked up to affect the action of Congress, which has long known our calamity, and will grant us justice, despite our enemies and persecutor*. STATE PILOTS. Theatrlcsls.

They will appear again this evening in the same piece* a* those they danced last night, one of which, the Pas de* Moi nonneurs," Is, wo think, better calculated to exhibited their grace, artistical skill and beauty, than any they lievo previously performed. The farce of "Somebody Else," which by the way* was capitally performed last night, will be repeated, together with the comedy of the "Dumb Belle." Bowaav Thiatse.?"

The spring election will take place iu ordinary course. Tha aspirants for re election intha Common Council, or for continuance in office un4er the corporation, would do wall to agitate such a reform aa cleanliness in the streets, and the abatement of the many other abuaei that stare us continually in the face, j befora the preliminary meetings for the spring election take place.

A good job, substantially executed, like the Russ pavement, in capable of resisting the action of a whole train of omnibuses and other vehicles,such as are perpetually plying upon Broadway. Whether suoh a plan ot paving the street*, generally adopted through our public thoroughfares, would not prove more economical to the publio treasury ef our oity, and more advantageous to the city, let the mudpools of Broadway, the ruts in the Bowery and the dilapidated atate of our public streets in general, answer the question Something must eventually be done to ensure us clean and well paved streets.

Lbctvbes on Akcii.it EoTrTiais Aschaolooy.?Mr. Oeorge R. Oliddon, formerly U 8 Consul in Egypt, having been invited by the New York Historical Society to deliver a course of lectures on "The Antiquities of Egypt," during the present season, haa accepted the invitation. The eourae is to consist of eight lectures, including tbe introductory one, which was delivered last evening at Mechanics'Hall, ?*i Broadway The walls of the lectur* room are covered by paintiugs, drawings,and engravings, illustrative of the subjects of which the lectnrea are to treat; the pyramids, exterior and interior views, the labary nth? illustration* of the arte, sciences, manneri, costumes, A1., of the ancient Egyptiana?portraits and likenesses of the Egyptian sovereigns taken from sculptures, -fsc similes of genealogical papyri?battle scenes from the monuments,?hieroglyphtoal inscriptions. and a great variety of colored drawings, representing religions rites, scenes supposed to relate to the Hebrew captivity, procession* 01 foreign nations tributary to the Pharoabs, with plans, maps and topographical charts of the- country snd architecture of the land ol the pyramids. To explain the value of some of theee drawings, paintings, Ico., to the student of Eg) tiau antiquities ; the mode in which others were obtained. the egteemont of each with others in dates, historical relations, and the recital of facts .was the subject of a part of the intro luctory lecture. The lecturer remarked, "chronology, like every other science, Is progtessive " The laat few years he said had made great ouangoe In tbe aspect of primeval history The Turin geneological papyrus, the ancestral chamber of Karnao, and some other relic* of great Importance, containing in their inscriptions the key to information long sought, had not only?opened up new flolds for re sesrch and supplied former regretted blanks, but had led to the proof that some erroneous calsulations had heretofore been made ; these errors were not attributable to any avoidable error of the chronologers, but to their want of the dats, which happily have been supplied by the reecue from oblivion of these recently obtained tablets and papyri. Mr. O. hoced ho should not be co tidered pgotiKticsl in his familiarity with tho subjects upon which he was about to lecture ; ha did not protess to m i discoverer, Due an expositor. a residence of twenty three year* In the valley of the Nil*, had enabled him to make himaelf familiar with localities, and a study of his favorite science upon the apot, had itftn him peculiar advantage* in making him acquainted, by personal observation, with theae curioni relic* of past atM, by which a retrospect of aome A,MO year* is obtained. The history of Ancient Egypt, he intimated, is a subject . of increasing interest, bow that the Isthmus of Saex haa again become tbe thoroughfare of nations. Mr. li. alluded to the vast labor and expense which attends the researches made in the country of which he was speaklog, the valuable live* that had been secritoed in the arduous labor of making these reeea-xfces. Seme idea may be formed of thia labor when it ?c stated that the preservation of the aculpture upon the walls of the " Aocestral Chamber" (one of tbe vain ole and most important diecovetles alluded to atx<ve) waa only accomplished by sawing off the feces of the blocks of stone upon which they were cut. This waa accomplished by an intelligent Egyptian, who afterwarda sent the sculptured blocks to Tails, where they now stand, reoording the names and reigns of <1 monarch* consecutively, and all of whom held ru e in Egypt, prier to the time of Moses The Turin tables reter to the lives and reigns of 4*0 king*. Glancing at aome of the featurea which are to characterise hi* lecture*, Mr. O. atated that he should take leave, in thi* lecture, of assertion, and start in hia next with facts. He atated that, owing to tbe limited height of the walls of the room ia which be lectured, he was unable to diiplay all of hi* illustrations The audience in attendance last evening waa small but eelect, compoeed mostly of the members of the HMorical Society. After the lectoie Mr U. remained to convene with any of the audience who were carious enough to aak questions, which the figures a pea the wall* raggested to them. !

All this time Waterson was locked up in his room, which he auppos?s was done by this sang, to prevent his rendering any assistance to his brother. After thus b?*tiog the life out of his bi other, they next threai?ued him with violence, and to show what they intended to do, they rigged up a rope on a tree like a gallows, threatening to serve him in the same wsj- whenever they fell in with him, and all other bloody Protestants. He says, the next thing they did, was to come to his room door ami , offer lilm the 95 or 110 pound* iterling, which wa* found on the pernon of hit brother, but the door being locked and no key th<sre, ke waa unable to receive it.
