This is her twentieth day at sea. I'hr Difficulty with Brazil?Its Satisfactory Adjustment. We have great satisfaction in informing our readers that the unfortunate and deeply to be regretted disagreement that took place between the American minister at Rio de Janeiro and the Brazilian government, lias been adjusted satisfactorily, and in a manner highly honorable to both governments. The despatches containing the terms of adjustment, will, wc are informed, be sent to Brazil in the U. S. store ship Southampton, in a day or two. We are extremely pleased that this aflair, which at one time wore a very threatening aspoct, and even endangered an eruption of the amicable and friendly relations that have so long continued, and which will,we hope, for ever continue, between the two countries, has by mutual compromise and explanation, been thus happily sot at rest. No insult or wrong was premeditated or intended by either party, hut | the most trivial circumstance will sometimes assume a fearful and dangorous shape, where national honor and courtesy are con- , ?ern?H This transaction assumed this phase. and if a less able man than Secretary Buchanan was at the head of our State Department, the result might be very disagreeable. That distinguished statesman had several conferences with the Chevalier Gaspar Jose de Lisboa, the able Brazilian Minister at Washington, and by a little t- ? explanation, and by the exercise of the talent for which he is so eminently distinguished, succeeded in bringing round a restoration of good feeling, and in producing conviction in the minister's mind that the United States earnestly desired that no difficulty should occur between the two countries. Under such circumstances, the Brazilian minister was satisfied, and ihe whole matter disposed of. If Mr. Buchanan or Mr. Lisbon were rash or hasty men, it might have ended differently. We cannot suppose a case to occur been Brazil and the United States which could not bo settled satisfactorily by negotiation and explanation, conducted by clear-headed statesmen. Good feeling has always existed between the two Governments, and the people of both countries have great respect and friendship for each other. The 1 Brazilians look up to us as a model of national perfection. They take great interest in our concerns, and even enact 1 aws, we are told,ver y much j like ours. The sentiments of their newspapers I are ot the most friendly nature. We published an j article in yesterday's Herald, extracted from the Jnrnul do Commercio, published at Rio de Janeiro, g.ving a detailed account of the circumstances that produced the rupture, but not a particle of ill feeling was perceptible in it. This article, perhaps, was written by a member of the government, who might have indulged in some reflec" tions on the United States to vindicate the conduct of the government, but there is nothing of the kind in it. It purports to be simply a mere statement of facts. How very important, then, it is that the two countries snouid remain on terms or amity and friendship, and when any thing does occur, displeasing to either, how important it is that our State Department should be occupied by a cool and clear headed statesmanOcean Steam Navigation?Atlantic Hall Steamers. We yesterday published an article which we deemed necessary in the present position of the ocean steam packet service, and which we are glad to find has attracted the attention the subject deserved. We intend to follow it up, until the attention of the whole Union is fastened upon it, and something done to prevent the United States from occupying even a secondary position, in regard to a steain marine, to any other nation in the world. The article we gave in yesterday's Herald has drawn out the following commnnication lrom a gentleman of this city, who has always had the interest of this country at heart, and who probably understands the subject of steam navigation better?at any rate as well?as any other person. This communication we annex Ms. Editor : ? Farmit the writer to reply to the enquiries in your paper of yesterday, respecting ocean steamers Vou ask. "will the people of this country longer permit the people of Great Britain to amass fortunes at their expense?" They must, until government take efficient measures to prevent it. What capitalist would invest his money iu a line of steamers between this nnd Great Britain, to compete with the two Canard linos, which wi:l receive yearly from the British government $000,000 for carrying the mails ? And it is kDown that nearly, it not the whole of that sum will be reimbursed to the government from postage. The Postmaster General, as early as April, 1843, was foAwarned. that if our government did not establish a line of mail steamers to Liverpool, the ("unard lino would he duplicated, and the steam carrying trade between England and America, surrendered to the British ?sg. and over $? 00O 000 American dollars taken annually, to keep in commission war steamers, (see Sir Jtobert | Peel's speech on the Cunard contract.) for our greatest maritime rival. When remonstrances were made to tho Postmaster General against selecting firemen as the ter- [ minus, bis reply was, that "it was an administration mea sure," and also that the British minister had desired that the "terminus for our steamers should not be in Kng- i land." You complain that sufficient American capital does not j offer to build the Bremen line; the want of confidence in the route it the cause; this, the Postmaster-General was apprised, would be tho case. The lack of American | capital will, in part, be sapplied, if the reports are trie, | that the Frussian Government, and the city- of Bremen, have agreed to advance sufficient money to finish the , building of the second steamer, should not the law under i which this line is about to be established (which requires | that tho mail steamers must be owned wholly by Ame- < rican citizens), prevent it. The drain of $300 000 to $330,000 per annum from tho Treasury, to run mail stoamers to Bremen, is of but little consoquence to the nation,in comparison to the total sur- i render of the steam carrying trade with Great Britain to her flag; and the defeating of the grand objoct of the \ mail steamer law, which was passed (or the purpose of building up a steam navy witu but little, if any, cost to the Government. VERITAS There are some very important statements made in this note. What will the Post Master General think of them ? New Invented Poktablk Kiplk Cannon.?We witnessed, yesterday, on the marshes of Hoboken, the result of an important invention, designed and executed by Mr. Gilbert Smith, one of the most scientific artista, lor many years in thecmp oyment of Hoc k Co., of this city. It is a piece of field ordnance of 36 inches in length from the breech to the bore, bored with rille fluting, through a solid piece of steel, and weighing about 70 lbs. It is mounted on a light field carriage, with every requisite lor ammunition, and capable of being moved by simple manual labor, upon any emergency?the whole not exceeding 200 lbs. in weight. A target was placed at 700 yards distance, and notwithstanding a very high wind, ev"rv bullet, conical I v formed, wsivhinv hut five ounces, and forced only by one ounce of powder, raid either in the target, or within a few inches range of tho very limited space allotted to it. The mouiring of ihe pi?ce is simple, but sure, and rtivested of any power of derangement; the sight being regulated by a screw, and the gun capable of being raised or depressed by a similar arrangement, posn<"?ung one advantage above all others, that instead of sponging in front, the gun can be sponged and loaded by a swivel movement, as a common musket, ami immediately returned to its position. We are convinced that (or mountain passe3, where horses are impediments, in bush skirmishing, where the rifle cannot reach, this invention will be found worthy of the government patronage, and the inventor's ingenuity rewarded by a patent. The Revenue Cutter Taney, Ottinger, put into New rnrt from ? cruise 011 Saturday, in r heavy gale from S >. ih West, with twelve men sick and frost bitten t ~ musical Intelligence. Italian Otbsa?"Lucia di Lamms moor" was porfoim ed again last evening The house was wsll filled and ' the piece well performed.

Gband Concebt.?There will be a grand concert in the Church of the Divine Unity, in Broadway, beween Spring and Prince streets, on Thursday evening next. We have seen the programme, and can safely say ! that it will be one of the best concerts of the season.' Thestrlcssls.

Every available place ol accommodation was filled up; and the entire cast seemed more au fail in their parts. This magnificent opera will be continued to-morrow veiling, with all its rich and varied attractions. The | famous drama, "Jack 8heppard," will conclude the performance. The grand opera of "Cinderella" will have a run at this popular theatre, which has seldom been so crowded as during the last week.

Launch.?A beautiful ship, called the Enterprise, will be launched at 3 o'clock to-morrow afternoon, from the yard of Messrs. Porine, Patterson it Stack, at the foot of Corlica street. These gentlemen have been for some years celebrated for the neat and swift small erafc turned out from their yard ; but this ship, we believe, is the largest ever constructed by them. They are experienced and practical mechanics, and no better evidence of their skill is wanting than is shown in the well-proportioned and j graceful model of the Enterprise.

Strange Cask op Suicide?A day or two since, the j Coroner received several anonymous letters containing such allusions in relation to the sudden death of a man named Robinson Walker, who formerly resided at 76 Hammersley street,as induced that olHcerto enquire into tho matter, when he found that Dr. Van Buren, an associate ol Dr. Mott's, had given a certificate of the manner of doath, and upon the strength of such certificate, the doceased had been buried, although he came to his death in an extraordinary manner. The Coroner ordered the body to be taken up, and un inquest was held upon it at the Seventeenth Ward station house, where the wife of the dead man was called and testified that her husband went out about 3 o'clock on Sunday atternoon, and did not return until 1 o'clock next morning, when some unpleasant conversation took place between them ; he finally asked her if she was not going to bed?she replied no, and said that as she had got to be up at five o'clock there was no use in going to bed for so short a time ; her hnsband then got up and took a tumbler, and saying he was fit to live no longer, went out. but returned after a brief abseuce, and seated himself in a chair, and slept till 9 o'clock the next morning, when he awoke and went to bed in the bed-room, telling her that he had taken two shillings worth of laua anum the night previous. At about 3 o'clock he got up again and took a drink at 4 o'clock: she went to take him some soup, called him but he made no answer, I and all efforts to arouse him proved vain; he was evidently suffering from the effects of a strong narcotic drug. She then sent for Dr. Van Buren, who came and attended deceased until half past 11 o'clock en Monday , night, when he died. He was a native of Pennsylvania, aged about 36 years. The verdict of the coroner's jury was, that Robinson Walker came to his death by poison, | by taking laudanum for the purpose of self-destruction. Kinr.?A fire occurred at 8 o'clock, a. m , yeiterdav in the planing factory belonging to William Van Hook iu Bank street, near West. Cause accidental, damage trifling. Attempt to Breae the Telegraph.?Sergeant Sweonov discovered yesterday morning, about 4 o'clock, a man having a rope attached to the telegraphic wires in 9th avenue, and, on moving towards him, the man absconded. He was evidently one of those wire pullers behind the curtain that belong to tha corn speculators. " (Jo where Glory waits too."?It will be seen by an advertisement in another celumn that all who desire to signalise themselves in the war with Mexico, besides acquiring a nice farm, good wages, Stc , have now an opportunity offered them. This company will be called j into service as soon as the vacancies are filled. The Washington Market?The Alarm Bell.? We are requested by several members of the fire department, to enquire of the Common Council, the reason that tlio Washington market bell is not rung for fires in the 6th district. They say that they cannot hear the Hall bell in that district, only when the wind blows from the east; and that in consequence of the raaiket bell not being rung, they cannot attend to thoir duty, and have to pay b round sum in the courie of the year for flree, in not attending with their engines. This bell is always rung lor Ures in tho 6th district, vnd why not . lor the Ath as well f We hope the Common Council will | remedy this evil.

Verdict, death by serous apoplexy. Jsrtsy City Intelligence. Stormy Tims ii? the Common Council. Chamber.? ! On Friday evening last the " peoples" representatives ! 1 read their protest against the action of the majority of ] i the Board in favoring tho usurpation of the Jersey asso elates It fell like a bombshell in an enemy's camp, and made as much confusion and noise as does a missile of thnt kind in exploding. It appeared from the protest that ! 1 the authors carefullv searched the archives of the Boards of Selectmen and Aldermen, to substantiate that the parties who now assume to own the water rights in Iront of and adjacent to that city, were, when representing their I fellow citizens as Aldermen In former years, strenuous I opponents of the same assumption by the Jersey asso- . | elates. The way of accounting for the milk in the cocoa- : nut in this case is, the protestants aver, that then they had no interest in those rights there, but within a few years purchased them for a trifle, and now step in and assume the stsnd which the original claimants ssca med, *nd which they insisted in former years, was not valid or legal It also appeared that these recent claimants, in their places as Aldermen, some years back, insistrd positively on the right of the city to exercise, and did themselves, as Aldermen, exeroise jurisdiction over the identical water rights and shore property, the fee of which they now claim as individuals Naw Bank ?Those styled tho lottery men of Jersey > City, have made application for a charter of a bank, which they wish to establish in Jersey City, for the purp se of having more lucihty to earry on their business.

It appears that Mr. John Hoey and Mr Johnson, belonging to Adams' Express, No. 10 Wall street, which is located nearly opposite the above porter house, observed on Sunday afternoon, just about dusk, twa men standing up against the deor ef the porterhouse, the premises having but a few minutes before been closed by the bar keeper, Mr. Wheelan. Their movemonts, indicating soir.e felonious intent, caused Mr. Hoey to watch them, when in a few moments the door was aeon to open, but was immediately closed again; this movement satisfied Mr. Hoey that something was wrong; consequently he called Mr. Johnson to look likewise, and f eling convinced they were thieves, came to the conclusion to arrest them, if possible; therefore, for this purpose they returned to tho back part of the store to put on their coats, and upon their return the men had evidently en tared the store; they passed over te the store door, opened it, and looking in and finding it all dsrk, and hearing something move inside, closed the door again in order to send lor an oflicer and procure their arrest, but unfortunately the store being on the corner, while Hoey was watching the door in Wall street, the rascals escaped from the store by the door that opened in Broad street. On observing them going down Broad street Johnson and a man by the name of John Dunning fol lowed them tin Exchange street to Broadway, up Broadway to an alley which led into Lumber street, along Lumber to Greenwich, down Greenwich to Morris, and on the corner of Morris and Washington streets. Mr. Dunning seized Peterson by the collar, who showed fight, striking Dunning several blows in his endeavors to make his escape, and would in all probability havo got away had it not been for the timely aid of officer Closer, of the 1st ward, coming up to his assistance,when the ruffian was secured and conducted to the 1st Ward Station House, where, on his person, was found a large assortment of brass keys, together with several skeleton keys und " nicks,"one of which fitted the store on the corner of Wall und Broad streets, which had been opened by them.

The iloop Harriet, on* oi the Sag Harbor packets, lyI ing at the steamboat wharf, was badly chafed by a ! schooner moored alongside. Several plank ends were | started and broken off on her starboard quarter, aed tha ! paint and wood for some distance badly scratched and bruised. The schooner was not much injured. The wharf of Messrs. Prentis and Learned was slightly injured by the tide and wind, and the lumber thereon somewhat scattered by the force *f the gale. The ornamental wood work on the roof of Folly Castle. in Bradley street, was blown off, and lay in the middlo of the street, this morning. [From the Richmond Times. Feb. 6.] ! Wednesday was one of the stormiest days we rememi her to have seen. In the morning, it rained very violently, and the wind blew, for several hours, almost a hurricane. We learn that very serious damage was done to several houses in the city?the gale, in one instance of which we have heard, tearing off a zinc roof, and in another bursting in the gable end of a gentleman's dwelling. Part of the rooflng of J. H. Grant's factory ; Greaner tc Son's factory ; Binford Ic Porter's cabinet warehouse, and Hooker & Bioren's commission house, on the basin, was blown off. The rooflng of the capitol was partly blown off. The steeplo of the 2d Baptist church was forced from its perpendicularity, and represented a leaning tower. This was said to be owing to i tbe want of fastening for one of its braces, which being supplied yesterday, all is right again. The street walks were covered with pieces of slate, and it is a little wonderful that no one was injured by them in their descent. ' Trees, fences, and chimney tops were blown down in considerable numbers. The wind was from the west, and yet Wednesday night, the weather became very cold. TFrom the Washington Intelligencer ] On Wednesday afternoon a storm *f great violence visited this city.

The bill recently ' reported by Mr. Niles in the Senate, from the Committee on the Post Ottice, supplementary to the act providing I for the transportation of the mail between the United 1 States and foreign countriea, contemplates the employ> ment of at least lour steamships on each route, of a tonnage not leas than 1,600 tons, and suitable for war steam| era Now, at its very last session, the Postmaster Uene; ral presented to Congress, through the Naval Committee > i of the House, a proposition from parties perfectly responsible, to build five steam-ships for the Liverpool and ' ! New York line, of not leaa than -7,000 tons each. The > i act noceasary to authorize the Postmaster General to carry out this project, waa reported unanimously by the i Committee on Naval Affairs, and remains unacted upon by the House. i | In view of our rapidly increasing intercourse and commerce with European countriea, and with all quarters of ' the globe, under the beneficent and stimulating influences of commercial fieedom, it becomes still more important i than it was a twelve month since to secure the advan, tagea contemplated by the estiblisbinent of the proposed i linn Ureal Itriinin hue pnvarail ill a noaun tirilk liaamers | of vast size and power, by merely advancing to individuali tho postage income, from which aha will in the , long run doubtless be reimbuned for her expenditure!.

That the principal debt as it now itaadi be kept i separate from the atreari; that the payment of interest | on said principal debt be resumed on the first day af Jan1 uary neat, and continued quarterly and semi-annually 1 i thereafter, as it falls due, and that the interest on the I principal debt be first fully discharged in each year before any interest is paid on the funded arrears. 3J. That the arrears of interest be funded on the first of October next in a stock redeemable at pleasure, bearing an annual interest of six per cent.; that said interest I be fully paid at the end of the year, (the first payment being in October, 1848) if there are funds in the Treasury adequate for the purpose ; but .if the Treasurer shall find that there is not sufficient to pay full six per oen', 1 that a payment of interest pro rata be made on the arrear stock, und a certificate be given for the balance, to be paid out of any future surpluses. 3d. That coupons be received in payment of taxes until the first ol October nest, after which all dues are to be paid to the State in cash. 4th.
