We wish each and all of our patrons and friends a happy, very happy, New Year, and co cra niate them on the general prosperity that / the first of January, 1847, witnesses in our beloved country. Although 'he year 1846 belongs to the past, it was marked by many incidents and events which i : i.. : !.? n,.o will bo found in another column, under chronological and statistical heads, and we recommend our readers to preserve this day's paper as an index to the history of the year just closed. We have taken some pains to compile these tables in order to present the patrons ef the IV* w York Herald with a rich New Year's Gift. The most important event that happened in the old year is the war with Mexico?a neighboring republic on our own continent. This war was commenced by the enemy, and forced upon us. Previous to the commencement of hostilities, the United States had endured a series ol insults and injuries for a number of years, which no other nation, able to redress its wrongs by force, would have submitted to. Notwithstanding our acknowledged ability to force satisfaction for our repeated wrongs, our country, with a magnanimity without a parallel in the history el' the wcrld, held forth the olive branch of peace, and ropeatedly asked and implored of i Mexico to retrace her steps and avoid a collision with us, warning her, at the same time, that, in the event of hostilities occurring, we should act only on the defensive, until sell-protection and the came of humanity required us to assume another position. Mexico refused the hand of friendship, and was deaf to our warnings. She declared the two countries at war before a shot was fired by our troops, and followed up the declaration by spilling the blood of our fellow-citizens on our own soil. Tiro war is still in progress, but wo doubt not, ihat before the end of the present year, it will have been brought to an honorable termination. The year 18M?, thon, witnessed a disruption ol" ui?? penceiui itriiuiuns which iiit? \jnucu oiairs hud enjoyed with the whole woild, for a period ' of more than thirty years. The same year, too? has witnessed some of the most daring military and naval exploits that were ever performed.? j Opposed to a foe three times superior in point of numbers, our brave regulars and volunteers compelled the enemy to bite the dust, and such of them as escaped their deadly aim, to fly before ihem as chaff before the wind. Our navy officers performed feats of heroism and bravery, which, Tor dauntless energy and daring, are probably unexampled. We have now changed our own position. Wc have taken an offensive stand,and are prosecuting the war in the enemy's country. We have gain- i ed, and are daily gaming important advantages, not with a view of conquest, but purely to conquer a peace. Before this is accomplished, we may record other victories and other deeds of heroism and bravery, worthy of our brave army and navy. The year 1846, too, has witnessed many changes in our domestic policy. The Congress of that year passed the sub-treasury bill, and modified the tariff of ld42 ; but the time that has elapsed sinre they were put in effect, has not been sufticimtly long to hazard a conjecture on their probabb influence on the interests of the country. The year 1846 was marked by a love of order >n tho part of our citizens which we may be highly proud ol. We have de uonstrated to the world that republics afford as adequate protection to life and property, as any other form of government. The year 1846 also witnessed the settlement of a long and angrily agitated question of boundary between the United States and Great Britain. iMutual concession, and a reciprocal desire to avoid the effusion of blood, prevailed over false ideas of honor; and a matter that at one time threatened to cause a conflagration that would ; encucie me civinzeu worm, was uisposvi 01 i through the influence of civilization and humani- ! */ There are many oilier events in the year 1846 j that we might refer to, if space permitted. We shall content ourselves with mentioning them in another column, under appropriate heads. Adieu, 1846. Thy hand, 1847. Slilp Building In New York In The spirit of enterprise which has always marked the character cf the American merchants, and which has done so much towards the welfare and prosperity of the country, we are gratified to perceive is still in the ascendant, notwithstanding the innumerable restrictions' which operate against commerce, growing out of national dissensions, and which seem to have effected but little that indomitable spirit of energy and perse" verance so peculiar to the nature of our people generally. This most important branch of trade, in w: ich the New York ship builders are so justly eel ub rat ed, not only for tho tleet and beautiful mxeled vessels they have sent out to every hnbitabi portion of the world, but also for the largest, t e most durable, and withal the most convenient ships that float upon the bosoms of the Atlan c and Ny Paciflo Oceans, is yet, we are happy to state, keeping pace with the rapid and onward march ofthisageof enterprise and improvements. In on- annual report of the amount of tonnage built at thv port during the past year, we find that no less thavtbiriy-seven thousand, nine hundred and forty-five t%;ig have been and are now in course of completion Twenty five thohsand nine hundred and forty of that amount is 110^ engaged in its legitimate clement, the remainder n yet on the stocks, *na win np comrioicn .n the roufe nl one tp?nrh. vessels launched in 1s-16.
