- ( NEW YORK HERALD! I l oi l*.. Thin Jmiumy 7, lH<Tt Legislative Prncwdlngl< The proceedings of yeatrrdny in the New York ; Legislature are to be found under the postscript ! head. The Mexican War?When shall we have t'race I The ol't asked question, when the war with Mexico will he ended, may soon be answered definitively and decidedly. If the recent intelligence from the interior ot that country be correct, there :niy sno.i be propositions lor peace transmitted to Washington But, alter all, Mexico is a slippery nation; worse even than the Kafirs. L t us, however, look into the subject. Our readers wiil recollect the article we published a short tiuie since, in which we referred to the Mexican administration under Herrera, the deposition of lterrera in consequence of his acceptance of our proposal to settle all the matters in controversy between the two countries peaceably by negotiation, by Paredes, who got into power by exciting the military ardor of the people, and exciting the rabble against the United States?the refusal of Paredes to receive our minister plenipotentiary, Mr. Slide!l,on the ground ot informality in his cr dentials, and the succeeding events that led to the breaking out of hostilities. Wc proceeded farther, and spoke of the downfall of Paredes, return ot Santa Anna, the election of a Constituent Congress, a majority of the metnbe rs of which were friends of Hcrrera and the policy of his previous administration, as well as the election of Herrera himself as a member of that Congress. When hostilities were commenced by the Mexicans, the military ardor of that unfortunate and miitary-ohief-ridden people, had been worked up 10 the highest pitch by tlieir designing leaders?so much so, that we have no doubt they considered it quite au easy matter to thrash the barbarians of the North and drive them from the State of Texas, which they were induced to believe was yet a province of th' ir's, and that Mexican people ought, could, and should recover it, although it was annexed to the United States by a resolution of our national Congress 011 the one hand, and the will ol the peonle of Texas on the other, expressed in thoir general election preceding the event. The battles of Mexico with Old Spain were fought over again ? the victories acquired over the veterans of the mother country wore referred to in the most glowing panegyric, and the acquisition of national independence by the valor and bravery of Mexicans, were all referred t? as proof that there would be no difUculty in the Mexicans achieving all they desired by the sword, and that the rcconq test of Texas could he effected as soon as the Mexican people willed it. It may be askeil, how is it possible that a nation of nine millions of people could bo so easily led astray in the manner they have been, by a few designing military m"n. Hut it must be recollectf d that as a bedy they are a sunken and degraded people. They know nothing ol the power or resources of the United States, or of our past history. Like the Chinese, they know but little beyond the limits of their own territory. They hid little or no commerce with the United States, and the majority of them being ignorant beyond parallel in all Christendom, they had not the opportunity of knowing any thing about its by reading. Their public journals are under the control of the government, and any editor who inserted any thing in his eoluintis that would tend to oppose trie military chieftain who happened to he at the he ad of the government, would suffer for his temerity by confinement in the Castle of Perots or San Juan d'Ulloa, where he would be allowed to cool his patriotism by a long and severe imprisonment. The liberal conduct of the United States for a series of years previously in not promptly and enforcing redress for the many injuries aud insults that were heaped on the United States, and which wo are sure no other government in the world would have submitted to for six months without obtaining reparation at the cannon's mouth if necessary, helped in a great measure to favor the schomes of tho military scoundrels who wished to play on the feelings of the people, for the purpose of furthering their own private views. We all recollect the bullying and threatening letters that were written by Bocanogra, the Mexican Minister for foreign affairs, to the Govcrn. inent of the United States, in reference to the qxuiti war then going on between Mexico and Texas. He assumed the position that the Mexican nation had been deeply and seriously wronged by the people of the United States, encouraged by the government at Washington, whom it accused ol violating treaties of amity and friendship between tho two countries, and threatened the power and vengeance of Mexico against us. We recollect too the temperate and dignified responses of Daniel Webster, then Secretary of State, to those threatening communications, in which he said that if Mexico commenced hostilities, on ner woma resi tuo responsibility?mat wnue me United States religiously desired to remain always on amicable terms witli every power on the American continent, yet the people and governmentot the United States conceived they were able to defend themselves against aggression by any of them. The tono and style oT the despatches of the respective Secretaries contrasted strongly in favor of the United States, but wc do not think it an unreasonable supposition that the dictatorial style in which the Mexican addressed the United States, was assumed for the purpose of having efTect among the Mexicans, and showing them that the government of the United States could be bullied as they thought fit. These despatches were widely published and circulated in Mexico, and we can easily imagine the effect they had on a people who are notorioiHy degraded and cowardly. It would appear then that our forbearance in remaining so long unindernnified for our losses, and tne insults heaped on us by Mexico, wero used as an argument to convince the Mexicans that we were unable to redress them by force; and to impress them with the idea that we were a weak and imbecile people, who lacked the ability to obtain satisfaction. wnen I'areues naa excited t!ic ardor of the people, he lound that ho could not control it. Instead of the eagle and the suako of Mexico triumphing over the stars and stripes of the United States, they were compelled to cower before them; and the Mexican armies, with three to one in their lavor, were defeated by the .people whom they were led to believe could be easily conquered. A reaction m public sentiment occurred alder the battles of Palo Alio and Resaca de la Palma, and Paredes was crushed by the force of the hurricane that he him* If had raised He was pronounced against ?his administration upset, and Santa Anna, the best of their generals, and who, notwithstanding his exile to Cuba, had still a large party in the country, was called to resuscitate the waning f'oitunes of the republic. He, probably, more than any other Mexican, was aware of the power and strength of the United States, and the hops, less.iess of Mexico prosecuting a war with u? ; hat being called back by the will of the people, he assumed the command of the Mexican armies as their servant, to prosecute the war, until the people willed him to act otherwise. Resides neing invested with the leadership oi the army, he was elevated to the ollice of Provisional Pr>>i dent until fho Constituent Gotisrress should el.-ct nothor. Tim hntti#* of i'rtio Ailr> Hint ){?.?. (? (In l? ? . ; ? * s*Patma undoubtedly bad great effect ou the people?a greater influence than they will admit "They probably saw the absurdity of the vi1 *ionaiy pros: ect their military governors had held forth to them; and the election of Hetrcra *o * ougrvss, who had consented to rej ceive Mr. Slidell, and wou!d no doubt have done so it' he had remained at the head of attain, together with a ma jority of his paity, called the peace party, is conclusive that "public opinion in regard to the war had undergone a change. By the last accounts from Mexico, we learn that ilia impression prevailed there iliat Herrcra himself would be elected Presidfcjnt, and that overtures of peace would be i mined lately made. It is also stated in the hut i tews that the departments o! Yucatan at,d Tabewco had been tho scene of another revolution, j a ad had pronounced agaiitet tho lederal government. All these movements are straws, and we wi <uld not be surprised to lind that propositi ins for audi, g it will soon be belore our gov eminent,,, from the Mexican Minister of Foreig n Attain, by direction of the Constituent Congre ss. T lie declaration of Santa Anna in reply to the exp resMsd hope of General Taylor, of peace being soon, rumored, that he hoped the Congress would act as shall be most conducive to the interests of the jepublic, but believed that no overtures of peace would be listened to until our army and navy were withdrawn, is not worthy of remark, one way or the oilier. He is now the servant of niu (icwpie, iiiu wiiue ne pretends to act tlieir bidding, lie is concocting his own plans of personal aggrandisement. Ho knows lie cannot compete with the American forces, and is, no douts, anxiously awaiting the action of Congress, and eagerly expecting propositions of peace to ema jate from it. M< tun time, our army and navy are making ever f arrangement for a terrible battle,which will give -us a peace, no matter even if no offers of peaofr are transmitted to us. Opinions of the English Pasts?Wepub'ish in a iotlier part of this day's paper an article from the Cape Town Zuid A/rikaan, of Nov. 16, on the subj ect of the Kafir war, and we ins*rt it for the pur oose of contrasting tiic sentiments of the British -people towards the Kafirs, with whom they are ut war, arid the sentiments they express towat ds the Mexicans, with whom the people ol the United States are at war. We bag particular atte ntion to the parts in italics, which we are turn will as well apply to the Mexicans as to the Kal Irs. The British accuse us of waging war on a wtenk and defenceless people; but we ask, ore the Mexicans weaker than the Kafirs, who, the f say have lost all claim to clemency, moderation, and consideration." A.msrican Coasting Trade.?The report of the Se:r?tary of the Treasury of the number of coasting vessels in the United Statss, is tlio subject of a great deal of comment among the commercial mc*i in this city. We are compelled to say that wo never saw an official document containing so met ny glaring errors as it does. Iji yesterday's paper we pointed out a palpable ernor that affected this city, wherein the number ral* 1 1 1 1 wi Ttootu UI live IJUUUJCU IUI1S uiiu upWinds belonging to New York is set down at two, but we perceive that Boston fares much wtrsethan this city does. Boston is rated as having sixteen steamers, and two hundred and twtenty five sailing vessels, while little Perih Am* boy, in New Jersey, is rated at having fourteen st latners, and two hundred and thirty-one sailing vessels. We cannot say whether the surprise of the people of Boston is greater | than that of the people of Perth Amboy; but we have 110 doubt that the Perth Amboyitesare completely bewildered at the commercial prosperity that the report says they enjoy, and which they had no idea of bclore. The sooner this report is corrected, the better. The Hkikh of the late Gov. Tompkiks.?The lutirs of the late Gov. Tompkins, ex Governor of the State of New York and ex Vice President of the United States, have petitioned Congress for the payment of several largo sums of money, which their ancestor in his lifetime claimed to be duo to him from the United States, for services rendered, and for money loaned by hi.n to the government, amounting to $3d,190. We have read all the proceedings in the case, and consider that there never was a clearer claim presented. We earnestly hope that Congress will lose no time in passing a bill to pay it. The Volunteers?Several complaints from friends of the volunteers and Col. Burnett's regiment, have reached us, to the effect that the men have not yet received either their advance pay, or sjiiv nnrtioii of llio oort onnmn.;.!...! r? their use by our Common Council. We have no doubt that if these statements are true, that some good and sufficient reasons exist for tbem. Col. Srevensou's men were not paid, we believe, nntil the day previous to their leaving this port; and if the men wish to leave their pay here far the benefit of their liimilics or friends, as has been stated to us, they can easily accomplish it, as they did. We have no doubt that the officers are anxious to, and will do, full justice to the volunteers who have forsaken their families and homes, to fight the battles of their country under them. j American Whale Fishery.?In another column of this day's paper, wo give some valuable I statistics from the New Bedford shipping list, showing the amount of tonnage engaged in this branch of commerce; the imports of oil and bone into the United States, during the year 1846. The table shows a diminution in the whaling fleet, in ?r r v.:.? 1 yJHK /<=?!, Ul VIRMW 01ll),0, IUUI null OI1C schooner, amounting to 2,f>71 tons. Theimportsof sperm oil have iallen otT nearly one half since 18-15, and whale oil and bone nearly as much. DisTiNOtniniD Arrival.?The Hon. Daniel Webster, who has been l'or the last ten days at Boston, arrived last night at the Astor House, on his return to Washington, to resume his legislative duties. _________ Military Movement.?Amongst the number of military officers at present at the American hotel, we found, yesterday, the arrival of Lieut. J. II. Better, ol the (J. S. Army, who hns returner! on , sick leave, wounded severely, we believe, in the gallant storming and capture of Monterey. Navigation Open to Albany.?The Hudson is open to the capital of the State. We understand that a steamer will leave this city this afternoon for Albany. This, on the 8th of January, is extra; ordinary. _____ The Last Call?This graphic illustration el " New Year's Day," in New York, will be publisher! in the Weekly Herald next Saturday.

[ Oband Concrkt at tni Tab??i?aol?.?This evening ' we expert to tee an army of the fashionable ilitt at the ; montlre concert to bo given by Henri Hers, such as has lately been collector in this oity before. The attrac lions, both for novelty and variety, are on a most liberal scale. The Kropcror will, besides a duet with Rapetti, . sod two solos, fantasias on "Lucia do Lammermoor," and " II Puritani," also play a duo with the extraordinary young pianist Visa Anne Maria Cole. Tbis will nit be the least pleasing feature of the evening. The members of the Italian opera company will sing some of the choicest gem* of the best operas of the day. The j "Prayer of Moses," so celebrated in Kurope, will be eung by Signorita Barili, Signers Beueventiuo, Benedetti, and the other chiel singers of the troupe. Herr j Dora adds a grand fantasia < f his own, on tt?e Kreneh born, and tho overture to William Tell will be executed ; upou eight piano fortes by sixteen of our professors ? Kach and evary part of the programme ie a treat by it . elf, but with such a combination we only fear leat all | who desire to he prcsant may not be aocommodated ? That the blaze of light may be co equal with the brilliant talent engaged, we learn that the Tabernacle is to bo splendidly illuminated with wax candlea, independent of the gas. This will bo a gala night for the musi. cal world. Italian Oucka.?Palmo's was crowded last evening in very part, and "Linda of Chamouni" was successfully repeated BurillS appeared mora at her eaae than hereto, lore, and sang divinely. Beneventann's gigantic voice was robbed of a certain harshness which we noticed the other eveninr. and he was most heartilv received. Ben. edetti improve* upon acquaintance; hi* 'enor i* certainly the very concentration of melody and harmony. Sanqui 1 rice was himself nil over; and a moat excellent buito i* that seme self The part that Pico hai, iaofcotirse not well calculated to exhibit her power*, but *uch a* it is he make* the most of it, and her note* are i one the less the pure and rich becauso she is only Pierrotto. Of the opera itself we can only repeat what we have said before. It is pretty, papular, and will answer probably much better than one more full of artistical eltort at display. Some of its pirn are very sweet, and will be whistled about our streets before the week is over. The next opera to be produced is "Lucia do Lammermoor," and that it will he well sustained, we have no fears. Strom.?'The ee'.at with which the various concerts of 1 this great vi >lin;s'. havo been received in Washington, I Baltimore and Philadelphia, must have exceeded his ut- \ most anticipation*. Every where the enthu.siam excited has been unparalleled After playing for two musical , societies in Philadelphia last week, ?0 proceeded South and will give his next concort in Richmond.

The " Pss de Fleurs" is decidedly the most graceful and picturesque divertisement they have yet appeared in, and seems to give unbounded satisfaction every night of its performance They will appear this evoning in three dances. The comedy of " Nicholas Klam," and the comedy of the " Married llake," will be included in the evening's bill. Mr Bsss's personation of Nicholas Klam in the first of these comedies is as good a piece of acting as we ever saw, and is fully spprecia- j ted by the patrons of the Park. Buwcsi Theatre.?The "Wizard of the Wave" was j again produced here last evening before a crowded ! house; indeed, it was a perfect "jam" from pit to gal- { lery. The entire cast showed judicious management, ! and the performance went foil' with i' lat, such as cha- j I racterised it on tho previous evening. The Hake's j Progress" was alto produced, and with much success; ] Clarke's Tom Rnke well was admirably sustained; Hadaway's 8am Slap.Vnche's Ned Noakes, and Booth's Harry Maikhum, were performed with much humor. Mrs. Jordan's F'nnny Moreland ant .Mrs Booth's Betty fliggins were also very well sustained, and M ss Bell us Martha acquitted herself with much naivr'le t he " Wizard of the Wave" is a piece of such high attraation as cannot fail to draw crowded houses. The mauner in which it was produced lust eveniug reflects the highest credit ou the good taste of the munager, Mr. Jackson, who alwuys IUI IUV |?O IUIIU ut uiu uuwvi; wuu luutu uuoiuu I ty and due regard ler their amusement. Amemcan Ciecus ?There wan a full and crowded heuae here last .evening, who seemed delighted with the performance. The riding was, aa usual, splendid.? best of the night was the two horse act by Mr. Carroll and Mastar Jesse. Such a splendid feat has never before been witnessed. Mr. Carroll rode sevoral times around the ring, standing on two horses, the little boy Jesse, about six yeurs at' age, standing on bis head. The crowds of spectators were loud in th- ir applause. May Fly and the Fighting Ponies performed also, showing an extraordinary degree of training lluggles, O. Dale, and Moseley, together with Muster Hernandez, acquitted themselves with their usual ability. The attractions hero continue to draw immense houses nightly. Madame Weiss andThoi-fe in Boston ?Thesecharming children have imparted much delight to all who have i witnessed their extraordinary performances, and have ; excited a very deep and general interest; in accordance 1 witu this feeling, on their departure for Boston, the agent > of Madame Weiss, (Mr. Povey.l in conjunction with Mr. I Hackett, of the Boston Atbeoaum, have engaged a special train, on Sunday next, for their accommodation on thair journey to Boston, which is to be performed over I the Long Island and Norwich and Worcester Road, by 1 daylight. Madame Weiss, in addition to herchldren, has a full household that accompany her, consisting of I *ttacht$, clerks. aDd servants, in every department, | numbering together about one hundred.

Kahmkr*' Club.?The first regular meeting for thu year 1847, of the above Institute took place on Tuesday, in the repository in the Park, to bear the opinion of the practical farmers and agriculturists on the subjects extended from last day's proceedings, " manures, and the restoration of fertility to exhausted soils " The meeting was not as numerously attended as might have been expected; as almost every plan that experience has hitherto suggested, had been frequently and forcibly adduced on former occasions. Notwithstanding, many interesting facts were elicited, and the continuation of the subject was proposed for the next meeting, probably to enable Mr. Wil liamson. who bus recently returned from an agricultural tour in Europe, to furnish bis views of the various systems he there observed operating successfully, in writing E-fiovernor Mahlon Oickerson, was elected to tne chair. Tito Secretary read a communication he had received from Calvin Post, of Mayville, Blunt county, Tennessee, on the properties of the land in East Tennersee, possesing coal, iron, precious metals; gold, predominating,silver. Stc , the gold producing from 30 to 40 penny weignts; and soliciting the attention of the institute to the sehome of sending on emigrants, who could derive from their exertions a profitable and permanent occupation, by colonizing a soil from which they could secure a perpetuity of property, the occupier having one thousand acres on the North-west side of the Alleghany mountains, he only reseiving the precious metal*. The communication did not seem to elicit much interest, however plausible the inducements. Mr. Van Eppes sent in a specimen of the black mulberry, which was distributed; described ax squally proUtubio us truit or feeding. A letter wax also read front Mr. Chat lex C. Boston, of Boston, on the propriety of the New York Agricultural Club assisting him in the formation of on Agricultural Muaeum. This measure wax supported by Mr. Wekeman, but eventually abandoned. on the suggestion of Colonel Clarke, who maintained that by patronising inch an institution, it would diminish, if Dot destroy,the long adopted plan of the New York Institute, ever ready to receive, exhibit, aud promote the inventions of artists and mechanic#?the proposition, consequently fell to the ground. Mr. Sheriff tent an article from brands Bick's works, on tlio method of propeguting soeds from all plants, in poor soils. This theory was subsequently refuted by Mr. Williamson, who had visited the farm alluded to by Mr Bick, whilo in Kngland, aiul who attributed bis success to the annual overflow of the waters in the neighborhood. No credence, therefore, was given to the proposition. Mr Wekeman recommended the appointment of delegates to attend the meetiug of the State Agricultural Society, which assemble at Albany on the 20th, and the following were named as the members of this deputation : C. H. Hall, Col. Clarke, Judge Van Wyche, and Alfred Hall. The petition prepared to the legislature for an agricultural school, was presented, and r. ceived the signatures ol several present. The subject of the occasion was then taken up, but postponed, as before remarked. The Secietary lead an articla on an improvement of modem invention, by which water onn be railed by a hollow bore. The Secietary more than intimated, that upon the experience of I'tofeasor Map:-s, tho samo invention was of nearly nntedrluvinn celebrity A long and useful dissertation, sustained by Col. Clarke and Judge Wyche ensued, upon the facility by which farms on Long Island can be supplied from the creeks and bays that diverge fiom every arm of tho river, that girts the island, with the marine deposits cost up. containing from eight to ten par cent of decomposed lime, besides a quantity of animal matter, by conveying it to a dry place and exposing it to frcst and heat The components consists of phosphoric acid, sea-soda, and potash. Judge Van Wyche also advocated the properties of lime, as excellent to dissolve manures that are otherwise indissoluble. He recommended 11 ne In lu mit .in Ik,. Int. Ihuf its nnrn at p,'.ilii>. irriivitv Would ink it, am! that it would, when placed on the surface, collect carbonic acid from the air and earth. Mr. Smith attempted to refute the theory, and insinuated, if not expressed, that the doctrice had no tendency to suit his philosophical notions. A veiy long communication was read from Mr. Tell on the subject of manures, which was adopted, and recommended to be published in the proceedings of the Clnh. Mr. J. D. Sawino presented some seeds ol a squash from tho interior of Africa, the fruit of which was two feet long and ten inches diameter, of a pale green color, Imt called by the natives "pompkin." The most extraordinary feature of fho occasion was a largo volume recently purchased by Mr. Brown, entitled " Ortus Samtalis!" with tho imprint of 1471; consequently 878 years old. It is printed on good paper, the type (ierman, mteispcrsed with Grcok ami Latin characters, in double columns, and embellished with very grotesque and curious, yet remarkably well designed and appropriate cuts. It treats upon herba and plants, animals and reptiles, with a medicinal table and profuse prescriptions. Tho object of introducing this book, was to show that, among nil tho produce ot this country in grain, plants, So*., there is no word, that even by implication, denotes the existence of indiancorn, maize or potatoes. Confused ltd embarrassed as every word is. by cyphers, tbbrei I Itioni, and to our view, shapeless letters ol the Greek. German and Latin languages, is thus intelligible. Nothing of further interest appearing before the Club, an ndjuumment took place to the third Tuesday in January, when the same subject, "Manure, Sec." will be resumed. ^ Movements of Travellers.

Captain Webster's boys flourish in grey from top to toe, and so I understand will Captain Wright's company, in a day or two. Some of 1 the lads seem impatient at being kept here so long, and : others begin to be cold and down hearted. One of the lattor class, wbo volunteered for Captain Wright's corn* pany, finding that he would cot be called into immediate service, packed up bis traps, an l vanished for part* unknown. The prudent pedestrian's nnmo is Thomas i Rowan, well known in this vicinity as one of the mow' active manufaoturerjof American citizens, belonging to oil Massachusetts. No man could make a better stump speech. Be this as it may, he ha* shown himself a true disciple of Mr. Van Buren, and has been accordingly i guided by "the sober second thought.' ; When the Massachusetts regiment ia completed, there ; will be considerable of a scramble for iU Colonelcy. If ! tact in electioneering can obtain it. Captain Wright, if , he has a mind, will be the man. He ia a fine piece of | flesh an l blood, nnd if he is only as bold as ha looks, in i the hour of trialf he cannot fail of diasinguiahing himself. ; I wish him and his brethren in arms, all the success they ; wish themselves. Two ships are now below ; one of them, deeply laden, i and supposed to be the Thomas B. Wales, from Calcutta. as she is fully due. She is of the kettle-bottomed class and I sails very well when cotton laden, but a Calcutta cargo , will bring her tremendous bumps so low in the water 1 that she cannot possibly make much headway. Nevertheless she is one of the boat built vessels belonging to this pert, and if she should not arrive for a month more, 1 think no fears need be entertained for her safety. We are now looking for late advices from England by some of your packet ships, and as the Htrald is expected to have the news, there is considerable of a rush for it here every evening upon tho arrival of the Long Island mail. Our city government for the inooming year waa organised yesterday. Tho weather was dark and heavy, with a moderate breeze from the eastward the greater part of the day, but towards night we had rain and snow, which continue up to this time.
