a*vA 1 ,D, | ?y. J ? unary 17. I** 7. A ewe fruin Utxlciti All the mads, Willi the detail* of the lite news from the city of Mexico and the *cat of war, ate in, and we have taken some pains to compile the interesting portion of the intelligence for our readers These d-tails are given on the outside of this day's Hualtl. Tue Kmente between fllr. Wise and tike Brazilian Government. We published yesterday an account ol an emeute reported to have takun place between the Hon. Heury A. Wise, the American Minister, and tbu Brazilian Government, in relatieu to the imprisonment 01 an American sailor, and the arrest of one of our navy olticers; which ,in tbe ubrencc of authentic and ollicial information, presents a bad omen for a continuance of the amicable relations that have sj long existed between the two countries. We are inclined to think, however, that the accounts of this unpleasant, and deeply to be lamented affair, are very much exaggera'ed in the newspapers, from tho fact that they state that a resolution was offered in the upper house of the Braz han parliuinOM, to expell Comnmdore Rosseaufrom the coast of Brazil in s x hours, where it passed, but that it was vetoed in the other house ; whereas the Brazilian Parliament, as it is here allod, was not in session at the time when this rer ution is reported to hnve been offered. This is amply sufficient to deprive these reports of their worst features; and when we take oiher matters into consideration, we arrive at the conclusion that the unpleasant affair amounts t o but very little, and can be settled by nego'iation in a manner satisfactory and honorable to bo'h countries. Tnese matters u.re, first, the sympathy that exists between Brazil and the United States, and the respect and confidence with which that country has invariably regarded the United States; and, second, the fact that the present minister of Foreign Affairs or ?eIoretary of State, has held a position in the foreign department for a period of thirty years, ai d is the last man in the world to bring his countrv info d ffl lllfv llflth ariu fnraiim IVt. iri|( tliis long time of pubic service he h isearn- 1 el a character for moderation, sagacity, and far-sigited statesmanship, that entitles him to the confidence of his countrymen as well as of foreigners. We are inclined t? believe from these fac s, that the official account ot the matter will put it in a more agreeable light. ! , Apart from the question of right and wrong, wo < would sincerely regret any interruption of good f ebng between Brazil and the United States, on ' t'se score of policy. There has existed for years p ist a bond of union, as strong as a bond can be between a kingdom and a republic, between us, w h.ch li?s been drawn tighter and closer, by the g-atuitous efforts of the British people and government to interfere in tiieir domestic institutions, a (1 compel the Braz linos to abolish slavery tioVtn vj'cps at thi it command. That interference aliena te<l nil the go- d feeling that had previously existed between the people of the two countries, and pre- ( s-mted the United States as the only country of j influence and power, that they could look up to. The evidence of this flattering state of things we gather from the tone of their substantial men, w ho invariably point to the United States as a model worthy of being copied in every respect, and from the debates in their legislative meetings, where the act? of onr Congress are cited and respected as authority?as a safeguard for their own !??L'i<k1a )inn __n? a Knor??n 1?? state might be navigated with salety. We await the appearance of the otiicial accounts of ihe matter with some interest. Value or Gun Cotton to the United States. ?We perceive by an advertisement in today's Jkruld, that Messrs. C &- F. Lennig, of Philadelphia, have purchased of Professor Schoonborne, the inventor of gun cot on, the exclusive right to manufacture that article in the United Slates, 1 and that they will be prepared to till all orders by the middle of February next. We are infotmed that this enterprising house will conduct this new branch of their business on a most extensive scale, and will commence it with the determination of producing an article that for cheapness, explosive power, and cleanliness, will be in every respect superior to gunpowder, and will take the place of that article in our army and navy,as well as among con'ractors on rail roads, and sportsmen. The article prepared by Professor Schocnborne, is very ditferent from any that has been made in this country thus far. What has heen manufactured here is only an imperfect imitation?merely explosive cotton?the other is real gun cotton, and not liable to the insurmountable ol?j-ctions that have been raised against the common explosive cotton. It s a remarkable fact that all the inventions in ' science, arts, and mechanics, that have been made within n few years, have had a tendency directly to bent*fit the United S ates more than any other country. The large extent ol our vast , country, together with our immense inland seas and navigable rivers, enabled us to profit more by steam and electricity than any other country. 1 This last one of gun cotton, although the benefits i. will confer upon us may not be so great as those arising lrom the others, will yet be of infinite advantage to us. Those who | have maUc a computation of the quantity of cotton tlicy will probably consume in the manufacture, to supply the demand of ! the United States, set it doarnattwo hundred and fif y thousand bal s annually, which would give a great impetus to cotton planting in the southern States. The increased demand lor this staple from Europe will not probably be so great, butevcn this it iscomputed will rcaclioncliundred t limoanil li.ih'n- maliinu in oil on ,............I -in f ,.1 U.I, nil liivi^accu lie maud for cotton of three hundred and fifty thousand bales, in the course of a few years. This will noon increasing through all time. A1 hough the ' ttimate ol the demand for cotton for supplying the United States with this new ex plosive material seems larg t at first sight, we do n* lhmk it unreasonable. There is a vast amount of gun power used in the construction of railroads and canals, in blasting rocks; and we kuow that an immense amount is used in sporting, and in the manufacture of fireworks. The amount used for sporting purposes is almost be* yond cal;ulati n. Every farmer, and fanner's s?n in the land has a gun or rifle, which is in | almost continual use. To supply all these demands,will, of course, ske an immense quantity of co ion It follows, then, that the United States will profit more by this discovery than any other country. It mskes very lit le diirerence whether it be an old or a now invention News from Europe.?The ?t*a nihip Hibernia Will be due at Boston on Wednesday next.

Governor Fed of Michigan, 1 has delivered his annual message I' divided to the ?ubject of common schools in the St. ., andsaye'the laws on the subject of coaimou achcul*, it is believed are such, when faithfully executed, as generally to secure in u manner highly satisfactory, the groat lutere>ts of education " The Governor comidaina of the want of punctual attendance on the part of the scholus.and deliciuecy in the qualifications of teachers " It is difficult to say what method, if any, of a public character, should be adopted to raise the standard of excellence in this important department," says Gov Kelcb, but he cannot refrain from recommending it to the consideration of thu Legislature, as a subject in which the ioterests of the public are deeply involved 1 he number of students in the University of Michigan is 70 The faculty consists of seven prolecsors. In this institution, every citizen of the State is entitled to the benefits of a liberal education without charge. " During the year ending cn the last day of October, 40 convicts were received in the State prison. #0 wete discharged, 3 escaped, ond 1 died The number re-_ m iming at the date last meet oned, was 122 " Agreeable to the direction ol the Legislature, the Governor has within the year made selection for the Sbite, of 6 920 acres of land in the upper peninsula. The choice was made with reference to the value of the particular locations lor mineral wealth. These selections and appiopriatioiu have not yet received the confirmation of the Secretary of the Treasury of the Unitrd States, although all similar selections heretofore made, have received such confirmation ' Deducting the quantity of the abovo mentioned selections fr m the unlorated portions of the 600 COO acre grant for internal improvement purposes, there remain to be located only 1.676 16 100 acres." It is recommended that application be made to Congress for authority to sell the salt spring lands?an act of Congress being necessary to aufhoiue such salo. Id relation to the leases, executed by the Secretary Of War, of the mineral lands of Michigan, the Governor complain* of the injustice of the system, and say* that hi* opinion, that theie lenes were made without autbori tv, ha* been "auctioned by the highest functionaries the general government, "it i*," lay* he, "of the ?>tmoit importance to evoid in time the evils which must necessarily attend thi* nnuiual disposition of the public domain " Sale* in fee at moderate price*, and to actual settler*, i* recommended as beit calculated to subserve the general welfare. A revision is recommended, of the law passed at the lest session of the Legislature, providing for the organisation of four counties in the mineral region The law is found to he imperfect in i'e provision*. and requires revision. By the present law Isle Rosal is not c ?mpiis?d within the limits of any county, 'neither are th contiguous water* of Lake Superior, which ere within th* hounds of the State." embraced within any county jurisdictional limits. Thero are du ri>'g the present winter at least on* thousand men in the mineral r gion. et gaged principil'y in mining. "Th* 0 lerations of this character dming the tear have con. firmed the general confl lence in the belief, that the legion in question is on* of the richest in the world in va 1 table ores and it cannot be Joubted that it will, at no dis'ant day, become the theatre of extensive mining operations, the source of much wealth, and the residence of a numerous population. These interests commend themselves to the aruardian care of the Legislature " The attent on of tho Legislature is called to the impor tanc.e of a communication arouni the falls of St. Marie' between the l'wer 1 bea and Lake Superior. Some yean since expenditure*! were made by the State in surve' a, and labor upon a canal for the purpoae of forming tuoh a communication, " but further prosecution of the enterprise waa prevented by authority of the United State* of ficers. Notwithstanding the national character of the work Corgrei* ha* hither'o neglec'ed to appropriate money for i's construction " The increasing busines* on j Lake Superior renders this cosnmutiica'ion now almost ' indispensable, and the Governor suggests the propriety, uolers the speedy action of Congress should render it unnecessary, of committing its construction to an incorporated company, with the proper restrictions in its charter, and a reservation of the right, on equltihle term* to purchase the work for the public benefit. The whole number of enrolled militia in the State, is reported to be 01,046. Much embarrassment hai been occcasioned by a neglect, on the part cf the officers whose duty it is to return the names of. * jus liable to do military duty, to make such return* A call for the organization and er ent of a regi. ment of volunteers to be held in read: s for the service of the country, whenever demanded jy the President' met with ready response. A number greater than was called for immediately offered themselves. On the subject of the Mexican war the message says, no evem couiu 00 1110 sunjeci 01 more general regret. The love of domeilic quiet and peaceful pursuit*, and a settled aversion to the policy of war pervade almost every class in community, a spirit of concession and forbearance has ever been libaraily exercised to avoid ' threatened hostilities. In reviewing the causes of the ! present wsr between the two nations, the same forbearance under provocations and indignities, and the same unremitted efforts to cultivate friendly relations, and to avoid hostilities, which have bacome the settled policy of onr government, are apparent an our part" The Geological Surveys and Explorations of the State aro for the present suspended. A new Senator is to be elected from Michigan during the present session of Congress. The twelfth article of the constitution provides that ' the seat of government shall at the present session be permanently located bv the Legislature. It is recommended that all officer*, a* far as practicable i be elected by the people instead of receiving executive appointment to office. This course, it is said, "while it | would relieve the executive from the exercise of a power by no racaus to be coveted, it would secure the i service* of men equally honest and capable, and would ' giv* better satisfaction to a'1." Upon the subject of harbor improvements, Gov. Fetch uses the following language : ? " For the went of safe and convenient harbors and roadsteads, pel Us attend on ever) enterprise connect-d ; with the buxiness of the lakes Every season swells the catalogue ol livrs that aie lust, and , f property destroyed. , " JM rep?tad applications to CeBgra a hytheLegialsture ot this S ate, and its ( ongressional delegates, for i the improvement of the barbers along our borders show 1 that we have always regarded this as a subject worthy the atteu'iou of tba general government. These improvements are national in their character. The great j interest-, connected with the business of the lakes extend to the whole Northern portion of the Union. They | aro connected with the induatry end enterprise of the preeent and future population of a tei titory rich in every 1 natural resource, ami exceeding kingdom* in exteut. A* the frontier of our common count!y, the duty ot affording the means of oufety and protection to our navy upon their waters, appears to me to be evident." Assembly DisrHicts-LKOsi- Query.?A doubt ! lists arisen in thu minds of some of our city legis- .j la.lors and their law expounder!, as to whether parts ot different wards may be included in the same districts. It is claimed by some that the wards possess all the rights of individuality which are er.joyed by townehips throughout the State, in fact that our eighteen wards are virtually so many towns, whose sepaia'e existence in the corporate uhion, whose r? served rights, are not to be compromired by submitting to any such coinming'ingot interests as must result Irom the diair cling ol the city independent ol the ward boundaries. The question is not yet sit'led but remains open for donate; arid meantime the districting must stand in I'a'uguo. It isto be hoped that the d trerences mny be settled soon, ss it is very desirable that the districting should be accomplished in some form or other. It is not imperatively necessary to divide the wards. Nkws from Brazil?Our files of the Jornal do Comcrcio to tho 2?kh of November, arc received.

Who does not recollect that outstretched hand and that suppliant how. a* the palm containing one cent was thrust out a little further to imKlore another for company to the first? Every hody wlo as walked through Broadway open mu?t recollect this relic of past times. Well, the old man has bogged and begged, from day to day, and ftom month to month, and from year to year, often making far better wage* then the rob'ist laborer hopes to teceive as a reward for hia toil; hut it now turns out that the o'd man's daughter, a

middle egad woman, residing in Elm street, in the sixth ward and who calls herseli .vlartha Clark, has rasped the benefit of the old man's mendicancy. It appears from evidence introduced before the magistrates, that this unnatural and ungrateful daughter hat diiven the old mau out upon the stieet to shiver in the cold, thinly clad and poorly fed. She paid him visits at short intervals. and took Irom bin the pitv bought pence which he had collected, and thus suppoited herself in oaaa aud comparative comlnit.

He was " habeas corpui'd "out of the poor house, and again made his ap- i peatance in B oadway, a more pitiable lookiug object . than before.

Why, ho asked, has the z sl evinced by this man before tho election on behalf oi these miserable creatures, been dissipa el no soon? Why has it burnt out? Why have hi* pledges and promises been viola'edl He (Mr. J ) was a feeble representative from Delaware county, the theatre of the an'i rent horrors; he was astonished at the arlence of Mr Young upon thia question, and on behalf of hie county he asked why thia silence?

Mr. Joh-io* said he was complaining because he (Young) tied violated his solemn promisee; naa the whole lonntaiu of sympathy been exhaueied? No mere love; no more regard fer these suffering people? He weald t ke it upon himself to say that for the sake of the oBloe of Governor, he (Yonng) was willing to aacriflee hie good name, and to be helu up to the execratiens of posterity. If elections were to depend upon aucb contingencies, he would say farewell to the Republic.
