Our readers will find on the outside oi this ^ day's Jltrald, some very important extracts from the latest English papers, relative to the famine of Europe?the probable demand for grain? and the financial movements of England. Mr. Bennett's letters. We have received by the Cambria several highly interesting letters from Mr. and Mrs. Beunett. We begin their publication to morrow morning. Sympathies of Americans*?The Famine In Europ*. The people of the old world, and particularly those of England, have, ever since the revolution, Indulged in censures and vituperations on American character. They accuse us ol want of all principle?us a people perlectly bereft ol ail the bind and tender sympathies ami feelings Iclongitig to human nature?as a people actuated Vy one tingle motive, the love of gain?the pur(uit of the almighty dollar. ' key have repeatdly told os that we are a nation of stock-jobbers and bankrupts, and that fondness of money predominated over every thing else. We question whether the people of America have ever taken the trouble to refute these slanders, because they emanated from a people who could have no sympathy with us since the declaration ot Independence was published to the world; and which, successfully carried out by force, severed the link that bound their Ameri an cslonies to them. The revolutionary war cost them some two hundred millions i f pounds, the payment of the interest of which they still luhor under. After expending so much to so little purpose, and afterwards losing what they contended for, it is natural that America and Americans weto to them despicable terms; ana mat it would take a long series of years before they could look 021 either with an unprejudiced vision. We trust, however, as we believe, that this feeling is wearing away, as it should do, and that before many more years shall have passed, that the people of England will he disposed to look upon us as a pretiy fair sample ol the human family, and, like the rest of Adam's ;numerous progeny, our instincts and dispositions are much the same as mark his descendants over the whole world. We have, at all events, given substantial evidence that we think of something else besides the dollar?that we are sometimes moved by sympathy ; and* that, when occasion calls, our sym pat by extends to Dtir 1 jockets. which h?v?v in many instances, freely contributed to relieve the wants and misfortunes of others in distress. Within a period ol' fifty years, partial lamine has visaed several parts ot the world, and to all of them was American sympathy extended. The Greeks were furnished with food, when they were suffering for want of it. So were the natives of the Cape de VetJ Islands. Ireland and Scotland are now suffering under the same calamity, and it certainly canuot bo denied that our citizens fully sympathise with their unfortunate ? and are doing their utmost to relieve their 4misfortunes, livery city, town, vrlliwe, and hamlet in our extensive country, wit" ?r?rtinn? fnr fliiu rvVii?r>f tt>.? na.n l" - W"JVW'I "/ ,MW fv-wp.w w?? lectivcly and individually. Our mechanics, merchants, trades-people and laborers, are vieing with i i> jth jr in the good work; and before the nev America will have sen', perhaps, a mitlio n ol.ars worth oi provisions and eludi ng, to fetui. angry and clothe the nuked of E::g1 and'* o.. a subjects. This will be a decided and peremptory falsification of the charges made against us by England, and wili act as a rebuke to her that she must leel, if her own ceople no* rot he-eft of sensibility. - o.iund and Ireland a* aerica with an opportunity of ese calumnies before the eyes ol t "nolo world, it haq likewise it (forded us an opportunity of exhibiting to the world our inexhaustible agricultural resources. Hitherto, the people of the old world were comparatively but little acquainted with our eountry. Information that would tend to 1 open their eyes to our position, power, and resources, was studiously kept lrom llicm, but now they will receive it in a manner little expected or contemplated by their rulers and lords. They know, too sadly, that their own resources have failed, and that they are aepenaeni on America ior ineir very existence. Every mouthful of food they eat. must, they know, come from America ; anil what ideas but the most exalted can they have of u country which, after supplying its own people with abundance, has a surplus left sufficient to feed a nation f of six millions of people besides; and that, too, j without making provision foi export. They know at once, that with notice belore hand, we could supply the whole world. What oxalted ideas of America and Americans will swell their hearts!?and w.ll they not pant to reach our highly favored land 7 The famine in Ireland and Scotland will confer a twofold benefit on us; it will prove to the world that Americans think on oth"r matters besides the acquisition of money; and that our country is as inexhaustible as it is extensive, and that it is capable of being the granary ? of the world. Thk Boston Tkl.eoraph?Very soon after the arrival nl it... .>..>..1,1. f U.:~ U .? ' Saturday Inst, and within a few minutes alter the operators commenced to transmit tlie news to the press in this city, communication between the two cities was suddenly interrupted. This interruption continued for two or three hours, when it was repaired ; but the hour a1 i which we received the news was so late as to put it out of our power to issue an Extra Herald thut night. This of course created much dissatisfaction, and rnuiiy people thought that the news in full had been received It was not, however, rc- I ceived, for the reason that the wire was cut j about seven miles out of Boston, in several places news messenger from Boston saw . that the wire had been cut or broken lor a distance of several rods. We make this explanation in justification of our repeated warnings to the public to beware of the speculators, who, as the event has shown, scruple _ not at any timo to aonum.t a State prison crime, ' ' be promoted by it. New York State Militia?Annual Rcfoht oi ' the Adjutant Gsnekal.?The roodition of the militia of the State has been laid before the Assembly. in a report of the Adjutant General, from which document it appears that the aggregate force of ihe State for 1S46, as reported by the brigado inspectors, was one hundred and sixty-five thou-arul five hundred and forty-tight. This, the Adjutant General thinks, is " far less ui ui me numoer 01 ttioso who ought to have been enrolled." The deficiency in numbers is attributed to the unpopujirity or the old militia ?y?. tern, which caused a hind of disrepute to fall upon anything connected with military enrolment. As the new law now stands, it is made the duty of the captain of each company district to enrol the men within his district, and that without any compensation. This duty, if properly performed, will olten require much time, and involve considerable expense ; and it is feared that this very necessary part of the system will fall into neglect, unless a reasonable compensation is allowed for the services of the officers who have to perform the duty of filling up the rolls. auction 87 of the new law directs that " the treasurer of this State shall nnnually. on or before the 10th (lay oi December, transmit to the Adjutant General a correct statement of the sum total pai l into the respective citv atul county treasuries and the State treasury tor fines and commutation money." A copy of the statement made in pursuance of that section is annexed. It embraces only sixteen countios, in which the amount of commutation money for the year 191ti is Ave thousand eight hundred and eighty-six dollars and twenty-eight cents. Many other of the officers named in the 8Mh section here, it is oenevou, receiveu cummuunoii mousy, woicn may have naglectad to report to the State treaaurer, aa required by that Motion of the law.

Frost 79 63 Ti'iga, Franklin Slesson 60 33 Ulster Thomas Clerk 366 46 Westchester, Robert Palmer, 193 40 $6,8S6 38 The report states, that Several officers have applied for pay for services rendered during the year 1846. Their claims rest upon the provisions of the 86th section of the new lnw ; but the construction which this department gives to that section will not aJunit of any puyment for services during the pa&t year. It is believed that the law in question contemplates making payment lor sorvicos rendered under tho new law only, and Hfter the now organization shall have been completed. The words "org inized in pursuanco of this act," which are found in the first subdivision of tbe 86tb s> chon. it is thought by the undersigned, wore in tended by the legislature to apply equally to all of the other subdivisions of that section ; and a reply to that effect has been given to the applicants above uumed. In relation to courts martial the Adjutant General remarks. The duties of judge advocates of courts martial are always tar more burdensome than the duties ol tiny of the members ; and it appears reasonable, therefore, that their compensation should he greater in proportion ; but it is believed that extravagant charges have often heretofore been made, and I would suggest the propriety of fixing, by stututu the precise amount whichajudgo advocate shall be allowed lor each day that any court may herealter he in session, beyond which amount he hall receive no allowance for his services. There seems to be some prospective difficulty about the election of officers in the new organization of the State forces. " The new law," says the report, " directs that senior brigadiers and the senior held officers now in commission shall tako command of the new brigades arid regiments within the bounds ol which they reside. But both the old uml new Constitutions direct that the field officers shall be chosen by the writteu votes of the company officer) of the regiment, and thut the brigadier* shall ho chosen by the held officers of the brigade. The new Constitution directs alto, that brigade inspectors shall be elected by the held officers of the brigades; be, there lore, inquires wnetner me portions 01 me new minim mw are not unconstitutional anil void. The regiments and btigades to he lormed under the law of May 13th, IHirt, will be entirely new in their organization ; and it is to be doubted whether the Legislature bus authority to direct that brigadiers and field officers under the old organiza tion shall take command of these new corps, unless previously duly elected ,in the mauner prescribed by the Constitution ot the State " " Soon alter the passage of the new law, viz : daring the last week of .May, the (lovernor received fiom the President a requisition for seven regiments of volunteer infantry, to he enrolled and held in readiness fur muster into the service of the United States, to serve in the existing war with Mexico." On the 28 h of May the Governor issued an order calling for volunteers. This order was immediately responded to by numerous offers ??f service; and the seven regiments were organized, and ready for service early in the month of August ; and the President, through the Secretary of War, was duly apprised of the fact. The oHicers of the volunteers have r ceiVtd commission.-, n conformity with the requirements of the act providing for the prosecution of the war with Mexico. It is believed that they are not properly otHcers of the militia, and therefore they were nut com missioned us such ; and it may well be questioned whether it whs the lute LiOu ol < ongie?s that the President or the Oovernor should organize the volunteers,and give commissions to their blficois, isut the President, 111 his requisition, re. quested that the tiovetnor would petform tins seiv.ee, ami he a cordingly did so, in the manner which appeared to him best. The companies weto organized, as nearly as practicable in the mauner prescribed by section eight, article first, title lour, chapter ten, ot the Revised Statutes. The field officers were chosen in the manner prescribed lor choosing lield officers of the militia. The statute under which tho companies were organized, (hut which, it is thought, did not fully covei the case,) ssrepualed by the no .v militia law ; and it is believed that there ie now no legal mode of organizing troops hy the Governor, except tho one prescribed by the law passed ou tho thirteenth of last May. If 1 urn light in suppo-ing that there is no law in this S ate, winch contemplates the raising of volunteers lor the United States' service, it may be deemed important that the Legislature should pass one for that puip ,so. in tumor war, and which shall also provide for raising and or ganiziog, in time of war, a militia force, in addition to the uniformed corps provided for in the is w of May last. Karly in August the seventh regiment of volunteers was mustered into the service of the United titates, and in tho latter pare of September sailed from the city of New York for California, in three ships. On the 21st ef November the Governor received through the War department, a call for one regiment ot voluuieeia Irom this State, to be immediately mustered into the service of the UBited States, to serve during the continuance of the war with Mexii o. The first regimeilt was at once designated, and tho ten companies of the ie gi merit have all been mustered into service.

Yesterday morning found us with n comfortable covering for mother earth; and r.leigh belle, which had been hung up as if for tho season, were once more taken down, the omnibus sleighs were overhauled and brought into service. The railroad cars made a fovv uncomfortable trips, and then gave it up for a bad job. Wheels were decidedly oat, end runners were in vogue.
