Commercial Treaties?Til* Extension of .iTiuci lean Commerce. We are four ful that the attention of the government and of Congress is so much absorbed in Mexican matters, that everything connected with our foreign commerce wi'l bo neglected, and that we shall lose sight of the movements making by other governments to extend their trade to the remotest corners of the earth, and the formation of such treaties with nations which have not heretofore been included in the list of commercial countries, calculated to place us in an unfavorable pos.tion. The government of France has lately been making efforts to open a commercial intercourse with the island of Japan, and Great Britain intends not to lose the chance of extending the "area of commerce." A French fleet, under the command of Admiral Cecille, arrived at Japan some time since, but the reception it met with was not of a very flattering character. The U. S. ship Columbus, under the command of Commodore Riddle, lately visited Japan, and the Commodore was politely requested to depart as soon as possible?, and not come there again. We should judge by these demonstrations to the vessels of this government and France, that the Emperor of Japan was not very favorably disposed to an extension of the commerce of these governments with his dominions. It appears .by an article recently published in the Pari$ Prcsse, that the King ot Netherlands addressed to the Emperor of Japan a friendly letter,' for the purpose of bringing about, if possible, the abolition, in that distant kingdom, of the exclusive system practised for the last three centuries, with respect to foreigners. Two years passed without any reply bei -g given. At length, however, the Emperor of Japan sent to the King of Netherlands a reply, of which the following is the substance :? "I hare watched with attention the events which have brought about a fundamental changa in the policy of the Chinese empire, and these very events, upon which you baae the advice which you give to me.aro for ma tba moat evident proof, that a kingdom can never enjov a durable peace without the rigorous exclusion of all foreignerx. If China had never peimitted the English to establish themselves on a large acale at Canton and to take root there, either the quarrels which caused the war would not have taken place, or the English would have found themselves so weak, that they would have at once sunk in the conflict. Hut from the moment when China allowod herself to be touched on one point, she rendered herself vulnerable on others. This was the reasoning of my great ancestor, when he granted you the faculty of trading with Japan, and, but for the proofs of friendship which you had frequently given to our country, it is certain that you would have boen excluded, at all the nations of thn went have been Now that you are in possession of this privilege, I am willing that you should continue to enjoy it; hut I will take care not to extend it to any other nation, for it is easier to maintain a dyke in good preservation, than to prevent tho enlargement of the breaches which are permitted in it. 1 have given orders to my officers in comequence, and the future will prove to you that our policy is wiser than that of the Chinese erapiro." This is about tho richest thing of the kind we have seen for a long time, but it is our impression that some way will be discovered to remove this restriction before many years elapse. It is very important that the government of the United States should make a decided movement in this matter. YUe are extendi no nil r nnssewslnns so rapidly on the shores of the Pacific, that the trade of the islands of that ocean will be very valuable to us. The harbors of San Francisco and Monterey, will, in time, become the depots of this trade. It should not be our policy to wait the movements of other nations in forming commercial treaties with those islands we are not at present in intercourse witn, but should take the lead, and let others follow in our track. We trust the government will appoint proper agents to make such treaties, and open those channels for our commerce, which have heretofore been closed. The Report of Sri.kct Committee on the Literature Fund.?A committee of the Board of Education was some time since appointed under the following resolution:? Resolved, That a committee of three he appointed to inquire into the application of that part of the Literature Fund which is apportioned to the Regents of the University to the city an 1 county of New Vork. That the said committee he instructed to inquire into the expediency of applying to the Legislaturn for inch an alteration of the law as will permit the moneys lelerred to, to he applied to the support of a High School or College for the benefit of pupils who have been educated in the public schools of the city and county. The committee report that they have given full consideration to the subject submitted to them. The schools which participate in the moneys referred to, arc:?The Grammar School of Columbia College, which received, at the last report, the sum oftfl,H2 SI; Grammar School of the University ol the city of New York, which received ifjM 71. New lorn institution for the dear and dumb, which received $1,212 24 Kutgei's Female Institute, which received $1,534 14; making in all $4,645 94. In the estimation of" the committee these schools ought not to receive the money of the fund,which was established, in order to rentier it possible foi all to have the advantages of an academical edu cation. As to the institutions referred to, they are part of them, deriving considerable profits froir their operations, and their stockholders are re ceiving large dividends on their investments ir these schools. For instance, it appears in th< case of the Columbia College grammar school, " that on a capital of $l:t 700 a profit of Ins accrued, being a gam of over 24 per cent pei annum." The li.ntger's Female Institute is also shown to bo making money. Them institutions surely, think the committee, ought not to receive the bcriefi' of the public fund. The Committee feel compelled to oppose thi payment of the moneys of this fund to the Den and Dumb Institution, although they are con vinced o 1 the great blessing which that institutiot is to the class which it proposes to benefit. Th Committee do not believe the Institution ca suffer, even if this money is withhold from thei use. The Committee recommend the cstabhsbmer of a high-school, such as is referred to in th resolution. l'-l - ? 1 fitter from Mr. Dennett. Paris, Dec. 27,1346 One ol i tie most pleasant private parties that we have seen, was given by the Marquise de Lavalette,whose house and apartments in the l'lace St. George's, form as beautiful a bijou as can be looked upon. We met with the Marquise at M. n. ' rA. _ I _ ? _ 1 1 o.vinna tVlA vjruizoi *jtie9 wiiero sne ranneu m uuc ???""i *?w best dressed and diitmgue in that assembly. We have attended a number of other toirfet and gay places, but society, I believe, don't begin in theirsplendor.tillafterthenewyear. Thetheatres, operas, and bat mavjutt are all under way, and the crowds which frequent these places in Paris, are perfectly incredible. '1 his vast metropolis is i in fact the centre of European gayety and cirilization. From every part ol the continent, people come here to spend the winter, acquire knowledge, replenish their wardrobes, polish their manners, and add to their stock of information, j i The number of gratuitous lectures given by men of the first eminence at the different public institutions, is almost incredible to any one from a foreign land, where nothing comes of nothing. Next week the presentations will be made to the king?the grand balls will commence?and soon thereafter the Chambers open. Tho deepest interest is attached to the discussions of the F'rench Chambers, as well as the English parliament? perhaps deeper than has taken place for many years. The rupture in tho friendship between the two governments may lead to strange results. At all events, the United States will be allowed to prosecute her operations against Mexico without any such interference as was displayed in Texas annexation. The governmenta of Europe have j enough to do at home. The Navy.?By private advices from Washington, we learn that Commodore P. F. Voorhees, 1 who, our readers will recollect, was suspended a few years since, bus been restored to command The circumstances that led to his suspension are these. Captain Voorhees was sent to Buenos Ayres for tho purpose of protecting American interests. While there, an American merchantman was fired into by a Buenos Ayrean vessel of war, arid her crew wpre about to be imprisoned, as was represented to him by her commander, who applied to him for aid and assistance in the emergency. Captain Voorhees, of course, promptly answered the call, and proceeded to demand redress. He called on the Buenos Ayrean officer, by whoso direction the American brig was fired into, and requested him to desist from the course he was pursuing, but he refused; and Captain Voorhees considered him- 1 self justified in obtaining redress, which he did, by capturing the whole of the Buenos Ayrean 1 squadron. For this act, a? we understand it, Captain Voorhees was susps tded; but in justice to that gallant officer we must state that many differed very much 011 the propriety of tho sentence. His conduct on the occasion was warmly approved of, wc are told, by all the French and English officers on that station. We are rejoiced to find that Captain Voorhees is restored to his command, for there is not a more gallant spirit in the navy. ? (Irurrir Tivi ni'< I cttcti ?Alhnnu Artrus of yesterday, received by Livingston &: Well's famous express line, contains the following curious letter from Washington, dated the 2tith inst: * * * * Its publication has injured the author of the letter, if it haB had a tendency to produce any marked result in the feelings of the people, by its expo is of the opinions of the Commanding General as to future movements, and the best means of prosecuting the campaign. Cf this the friend who received the letter from General Taylor, is well aware, and lie hesitates not to 8a y that its publication was a great breach of confidence on ^tho part of him who caused it to be put in print > There was no authority given by him for the publication of the letter. It was handed to this editor or writer in confidence to read, lor the inlormiition which it contained,with the injunction that publicity was not to he given to the contents of the letter. It was n private letter to an intimate and experienced military friend, and only one, among others ol like nature, not rrHecting on the administration, hut simply giving a desultory narrutive of the writer's operations from time to time, lor the edification of his friend. Tho astonishment of this friend may be imagined, on the next morning after the letter passed out of liis hands to see it in print, almost verhatim. He repaired immediately to the seat of government, obtained an audience with the President and Secretary of War together, and eiplained the circumstances to their satisfaction. Thk Launch of thk Washington.?This steamer, according to previous notice, will be launched this morning, at nine o'clock, from the foot of Seventh street. The launch will certainly take place irrespective of weather. From Honduras ?By the brig Matilda, Captain Jenkins, arrived last night Irom Belize, we havo flies of the Honduras Gazette up to the 2d instant. They contain nothing of interest. AlnalcatItalian Ofkra.?We now learn that " Lucia di Lammermoor" is to have ona moie repetition, and then is positively to be withdrawn, to Rive place to tne opera 01 : " Nina, pazza per Amore," in which Pico will hare a fiae opportunity of adding to her already enviable professional reputation. The management, in withdrawing the opora of "Lucia" have not done so because it has ceased in attraction, for, on the contrary, there has been a crowd almost uncomfortable, on every night of its perlorinaure, but solely with the view or producing a variety of the best compositions of the best masters, previous to the close of the season Signerina Burili will have, in the meantime, full chance to recruit her health, which has been hardly equal to her exertions lately.? Benedetti and Ueneventano need no delay?they stem to grow in strength and favor with every successive lip Iterance. The latter especially suits his immense voice to the compass of Pnlmo's building, and is harmonious ir I its strength. Ma.

H< was induced to give n concert in Richmond, Va., the ac count of which we extract lrom the Tint* 4- Comyiltt of that city.

The transport ships Loochoo, Susan Drew, and Thomas H. Perkins,with the California regiment, sailed from Kio on the 29th November, all in good health and spirits. It was stated that there were a lew deserters at that place, locking for employ- j ment. Nothing had transpired further of the difficulty between our Minister, Mr. Wise, and the Brazil- I ian Government. Not a word is mentioned about ; it in any of the papers we have received. The seaman who was imprisoned, had been set at j liberty. The news of the taking of Monterey was report- i ed at length, and full justice done to the courage of our troops. On the 3d ult, was the anniversary of the birth day of the Emperor, and celebrated with great ! pomp. Salutes were fired by all the men-of-war in the harbor. Baron D'Arcet, a French chemist of distinc tion, and who had received many honors from the government, had been killed by an explosion of gas. On the same day Cornet Joao de Souzn, 1 an oflicefin the Brazilian army, suffered the penalty of death, for some offence not mentioned. The U. S. brig Bainbridge, Commodore Pennington, arrived on the 12th ult. from Montevideo, beating the British packet Griffin, which sailed on the same day. U. S. frigate Columbia, Com. I modore Rouss an, sailed for Montevideo on the j 3d ult. The British war steamer Salamand-tr, Captain | Hammond, arrived on the 8th December from j Valparaiso, after a passage ol ill) days. The Crescent, Curacoa, and Express, English men of war, were also at Rio. The English steamer New Grenada, arrived from Liverpool on the 12ih December. From Montivideo news had been received to the 1st ult. General Rivera was at Vivoras on the 26th November, and having collected his forces, aires a qaam tr\ onrnmonoa nnAvatinnfl Thft fnrf.P* 1 under his command amounted to about 4000 men, j of which 2750 were ciavalry, and the remainder [ infantry ; he had also seven pieces of artillery, i A letter to Rio says:?"We have nothing to fear j from UrquizaatCorrientes. Rivera will soon open j the campaign,and probably with brilliant results." j Gen- Oribe had taken no steps for m* paign ; the General Assembly of Cerito had declared that the extraordinaiy powers given him by the acts of last year, should be cancelled. l From Buenos Ayres there is not an item of news, | In Entre Rios there reigned the most perfect tranquility, and commerce was brisk. The English admiral, laglefield, sailed from Montevideo for the Cape of Good Hope, on the ; 11th, on board the frigate Vernon, accompanied by the brig-of-war Acorn. These vessels were part of the English squadron in the Rio de Prata. Accounts had been received from Para to the 11th; Maranham the 14th ; Ceara 21st, and l'ernambuco the 30th Novembor ; from Bahia, to the 5th December. Everything was quiet in all the provinces, with the exception of Ceara, where several murders and robberies had lately been committed. A Portuguese britr, the " Ventura Feliz," arriving at Pernambuoo, had not been ' permitted to land a boat; she was suspected of ; being a slaver or pirate, and was narrowly watched by the brig-of-war Calliope, which finally pur: sued her to sea. Late advices from the Canaries, give accounts of great ravages by the yellow fever in those islands. Packet Ship Garjiick.?We are pleased to state that this ship was got off Squan beach yesterday morning, as good as ever, and brought to ! the city, by two steamers. The injury she sustained while ashore, is nothing like as great as at first supposed, which, in all probability, does not extend farther than scraping off some of the copper. The leak is but trilling, in fact, hardly perceptible. Sho will discharge at the wharf, preparatory to going en dock to receive a new suit of copper, and will be ready to sail, on the 26th of February, her regular day Theatricals. Park Theatre.?The comedy of " King O'Neil or the Irish Brigade" will be produced at this theatre, this evening, with a very powerful cast Mr. Collios will appear as Captain O'Neil, and with his high and acknowledged talents; his well known ability in this oomic part, in which he will introduce the populsr song of "The Boys of the Irish Brigade," the piece will doubtless be received with applause. "Wife Hunter's," a new comedy, expressly written for Mr. Collins, and "How to Pay the Rent," will else be produced, forming an attractive bill, which cannot fail to secure a bumper house at this highly fashionable theatre. Mr. Collins, since his appearance at the Park, has won golden opinions ; and ho has drawn, nightly, full and crowded houses. Those who wish to enjoy a real evening's amusement, should go to witness the performance this evening. "King O'Neil" will be represented by a powerful and talented cast. Bowery Theatre.?"

Arts and Sciences a mono the Ancient Euyttianx ?Mechanics' Hall, 47i Broadway, wai filled to overflowing on Thursday evening, by an audience called together to listen to a lecture by Mr George R Gliddon.on the arts, sciences, and mechanical powers of the Ancient Egyptians. The numerous pictorial illustrations which have adorned the walls of the hall on the occasions of Mr. O.'s previous lectures, were called into requisition by the lecturer It is indisputably proven by the relics of the ancient Egyptinus, tha' the arts and sciences had reached a high degree of ox^ellenco wheu the pyramids were built Mr. U. asset ts that everything goes to show that the ancient, like tire modern Egyptians, did not en trust black slaves with the performance of any mechanical labor. They were, aud are, employed only as household servants. They are not even employed in agricultural pursuits. The most ancient monuments prove that this psople were familiar with the art of Drick-making ; and the paintings upon the walls of the monuments and chambers, prove them to have been acquainted with rope making, leather dressing, systematic modes of slaughtering and dressing oxen, the manufacture of hoads, gold vases, ami shaving. They are seen engaged in ploughing, reap, ing. and so on through all the steps of agricultural labor down to the storing of the corn, putting up onions, treading grapes, Stc. 1-iom tha discoveries in hiproglyphh'ul literature, it is now p< oven that the Egyptians | -;ssed the art ol computing by numbers, divided into decimals, tens, hundreds, and so on, although tha credit of that system is given by tbo schools to tho Arabs. In the tomb of a nobleman,who during his life time was lend of gymnastic spirts, was found tho figures of wrcstleis in eighty-five different positions; in fact no attitude cuuld well be imagined appropriate to the wrestler which was not found here. A game similar to chess, or perhaps more similar to tho Turkish game of drafts, is found pictured on walls and papyrus; and harps of most beautiful construction and ornately finished have been token from the tombs. A picture is preserved, which shows an Egyptian "cow doctor" in t-e pursuit of his calling a number of bine are before him, and one of them protrudes her tongue from her (mouth; the tongue is painted green, indicating that the animul is sick, and the hieroglyphics over the picture says, " he gave them tamarask water." The Egypliuno aiinlio/l thnmaalvea to rnrvinir. tlmwinir naintinir. sculpture, and architecture. They were governed by rules in their drawing* and sculptures; they had a canon by which they were governed. The Egyptians excelled in coloring and grouping, a* ia proven by their works, still visible; but they were entirely ignorant of the rules of perspective?they knew nothing about foreshortening. In sculpturing they paid peculiar attention to the faclaliikeness. and neglected, in a great degree, all

other parts of the figure; and, in fact, it is supposed that the master took only the likeness ol the face; (he figure was then turned over to the student, or even more humble operatives, to complete. They never blended colors, but produced the desired effect by contrasts, and by this method gave an astonishing effect; one which would hardly be imagined by persons, who had not seen their works, or something similar. An instance of the kind of ettect thus produced is to be found in the colors of Turkish carpets so famous for their richness. That the Egyptian* wore great caricaturists is proven by the numerous scenes, of an exaggerated character, which are to be found among the relics. Such as an army of rats in chariots, drawn by dugs, going to attack a fortress defended by cats?a donkuy and a lion emulating each other in nlaying upon musical instruments?donkeys playing chess?hippopotamus in a tree, to which position a bird is climbing by aid of a ladder. They snow a keen sense of the ridiculous in ; many other ef their paintings; they were always fond of twistiDg the girdles of negroes so as to appear like tails. The doric column is found in great perfection in works ! which ante-date by 1000 years the Dorians. Mr. Oliddon | romatked that he had often been interrogated as to whe | ther the Jews were meutioned in any of the 1 hieroglyphics ; his answer was no, they did not tppcar there. He wished to be understood as not denying the fact that they were thore, but it was at tho time wbeu the invaders were in possession of the country during which period the arts were neglected, and no monuments were bu>lt. In painting human figures the Egyptians always represented their own people by rod and yellow, the men being painted in the former and the women in tho latter color. Their paints, which were of a superior kind, woro described by tbo lecturer. The cutting blades of the Egyptians, and all otbor hardened tools, were mude of copper; swords, axos, saws and chisels are still found; a sword was found still elastic, but most of tho implements found have lost their hardness liy age. The instance of the elastic copper sword, proves that the Egyptians possessed some mode of tempering that metal which has not been discovered in modern I times; we cannot make copper elastic They also proba 1 bly possessed the art of dissolving gold. One writer has gone so far as to propose and attempt to prove, that they anderstood the principal of the railroad; grooves were foand in the rocky floors of the quarries, hut these Mr. G, thinks were worn by the carts and sledges running in the soma track for a long time, end were not cat for the purpose of facilitating the removal of the rocks. The deric, the crane, the wedge aud the lever wore used by the workmen, who sepurated large bodies of granite by placing highly dried wooden wedges into holes made at short iutervals, and saturated the wedges until their ex. pension caused the rock to give way. It would appear indeed, that nearly all the principles understood by the mechanics of the present day, and used in tba matter o: gaining power at the expense of velocity, were under stood by the ancient Kgyptians. It is not positively us certained wbethorthey had the pulley or not. The lec turer showed how far advanced in science the Egyptiani must have beeu when the pyramids wore built, and how much the civilized world is indebted to them for some o; the useful arts, which have been accredited to other na tions. Mr. Giddon leaves the city at piesent, this being his concluding lecture. Law to equalize Taiatiow ? A committee of the Board of Assistant Aldermen have reported in favor o! presenting tethe Legislature, at its present session, drafts of laws to equalize taxation in our city, with msmorials requesting tue passage of the tamo The law naked foi pro; oaes to assess all property, whother real or personal The committee states that there ere more than two thou saml firms doing business in the city, with capital* ave raging $16,000 each, making an aggiegate ol $30,000,001' and over, who escape taxation by becoming non resi dents, t having a mero slurping home somowliere ou' ot the city, and thus keeping the city out of ab<>m $300 000, which they ought tn lie assessed for. The pro , posed acts are meant to ineet the casus of these gentle men. The committee state, that owing to this system ! the amount of assessed personal property has fallen of in ten years from $76,000,000 to $62,000 000, instead o gradually increasing, na it should have done.

Illinois and Indiana bonds have I I ,, L., , , ? ^ olfc? iui|uvvou iu luumri voiuo murv mpiuij wan Vl,,v* ' 8tate stocki in the list. The margin for an improvement I in the bonds of those two States was greater than in any j other two; and it is considerod that the recent rise in the I prices of agricultural products, will particularly benefit | the people and increase the resourcei, of Illinois and Indiana. The impetus remunerating prices and an extensive external demand will give to the production of , all kinds of breadstuff! natural to the soil of our Western States, must produce a corresponding increase in the ' value of laud, and the value of public and private property of all kinds. The population of Illiuois and In diana is increasing more rapidly than that of any othor State in the Union, and we have no doubt but that in a few years the productive breadstuff! of these States will ; exceed those of any other two in the confederacy. It is impossible to tell what will be the result of tho movement now going on in breadstuff's, but we are pretty well satisfied that high prices have been realized by the ; producers, and that class will be placed in a very pros I.perous condition by tho course this trade has taken. i From the accounts received by the steamship Hibernia, ! from England and France, we should judge that there | was a very great probability, not only of the scarcity of food in those countries continuing, but of its increasing, and being greater next year than it is at present. The , course adopted by the government of Oreat Britain, tc | relieve the distresses which the lower classes are now suffering from, is calculated to produce more serioui difficulties another year, and to entail upon the people o! i | Ireland the worst evil that can befal a people. Th? 1 ! withdrawal of laborers from the soil,even before the last ' ' crop was fully harvested, and to induce thom to depend ' upon public aid lor support, cannot but be attended with j difficulties, and result in an immense increase in the | number of paupers. ' , From official returns, it appears that the weekly in f ] crease in the number of laborers employed on the gov < ernment relief works has been very large, reaching ! in two instances, more than fifty thousand. i Pkrsoni KMrLovru on OovcameanT UcLisr Works ' Week ending 8d of October 28 19; f " 10th " 40.Odf - 17lh " 68,76.'

A Londo ? paper says: "We are now expending in charity, in Irelat i alone,?nay, in portioni only of Ireland,?a turn equal1 j tho whole coat of our army or of our nary,?a sum e: ir ceeding by one-Afth our whole poor law expenditur it exceeding by one-Afth the produce of the income tax f< ~ the United Kingdom,?a sum half as much again as tl produce of the tea duties or the sugar duties,?a sum, d Ane, equal to one-ninth of our whole yearly imperial i n j come. We are employing, moreover, on these publ U i (and useless) works, 800,900 laborers, who represe u probably, 1,500.000 of the population; and things ha' reached this fearful height witbin two months from tl s last potato harvest, and consequently when ten mont have yet to elapse before the gathering in of tho ne lC crop. Unless some vigorous measures are taken speedii ts ! the expenditure, before that period arrives, will be at t r* | rate, not of six, but of ton millions a year." _ 1 We see nothing to prevents scarcity of food anoth ' year, greater than that experienced this. Even in t event of the grain crops being equal to, or more than i average, the dcAciency in the potato crop cannot hut i very great, as it is stated that there is not in the Unit Kingdom enough tubers for seed. The crop, therefoi ? must be short, even in the absence of tho disease, whii ?- | favorable circumstance we can hardly expect. I 1110 demand lor our.oreaustuirs u likely to be larg next year than it has been thia, nnl the production likely to be, provided the season is good, exceeding large. The crops will, in all probability, be larger tl next year in proportion to the demand, than they ha been this, but the producers havo made such handsoi profits this season, that they are in a position next, J control tlieir supplies much more than they have I several years past. A few seasons like this would do f- vast deal towards relieving the peoplo of the .delinqus States of the immense public debts. As the sggregt wealth increases the taxes become lighter, and the ret " nue from direct taxation is derived from a greater nu ber of sources, and is not so burdenaomo. The Wests , States will be particularly benefitted by the great rise and the great demand for breadstuff's, as they compri I the principal staples of that section of tho country, soon ns the nublio works of Indiana and Illinois i in ?r completed, tho product* of tho*e 8 atn? will find !" | economical, easy, ard rapid outlet to tho meet importi eh maiket*.
