NEW YORK HERALD. >cir v?rk, Mondax, March 1, 1817. Tbti Knd of Hie Srxaloii?The ImpniUnt 0tl?atil-TlM Ileiuld llrpoita. The last session of the twenty-tenth Congress is drawing to a close. Iaiu* Deo There remain ^^B only lour days, and during those lour days there will be, as usually is the ease at the close of each session, n gteat deal ol business transacted in a burned and imperfect manner. H This session will be charac'ensed as the most disgracetul in the history of tlie country. Mem bera wased their time, which, in the present case is so precious, iu squabbling and debating upon sectional and silly matters, whilst the interests of the eouatry were allowed to suffer. Money and men should have been placed at the command of H the administration immediately, and then ConH gress cou'd have legislated on Secretary Buchanan's able consular system, the pilot law of 1887, and other subject* of great importance to the welfare of the country. Of course, the attention of the people will be largely directed to the proceedings of the few diys that remain of the session. Our arrangements are perfect to give a daguerreotype picture of thein from day to day, and to detail particularly the incidents, speeches, fcc., to the last hour of the last day. We do not suppose that any action will be taken on the consular bill this session. We expect that it and o her things of importance must lie over till the thir'ieth Congress Bhall meet in December next. MR. BENNETTS LETTERS FROM EUROPE. I'akis, January 29, 1847 The itlcilrHii War In an European Military Point or View?The N eutrullty of England und Prance?Ocean Steam Navigation? '1 ha Fiench Line of Steamers, dfcr. 1 had a conversation, a lew evenings ago, about the war w:th Mexico, with some British and French officers, during a ttoirit at one of the fashionable talons, where some new musical debutants from Italy were showing olf their talents. In private society, the sentiments entertained by military and diplomatic character, are somewhat different from those outbursts of passion which circulate in the press. Privately, these personages express their wonder, their astonishment, their dread, th-'ir loudest admiration at the tnigh'y growth, progruss, and energy of tl... If.,Stall.. Tl..?, Ilia araat 1_" fS'?? republic as a movement an l developement in moral and political power, equal and similar to that of steam and electricity in the physical world. The conversation, to which I allude, was very curious, and very critical. Setting aside the mirale of the war, they censured Mr Polk's ad* , linis ration, for the weak and inefficient plan o i whic h it was carried on One ol? the French nllicers, who spoke very good English, alftrmed chat the best, and most elhcient plan of operaons appeared to be that conceived by General Gaines, at New Orleans, on the first breach of hostilities. " The United States," said he, "never should engage in a little, or a cheap war. Ifit is dee ned necessary to go to war at all, it ought to be crushing, powerful, and profoundly energetic. Such a war is the cheapest in the end?such were the wars of Napoleon, and of every great military genius." 1 could not help concurring in these ideas. If the energetic measures, set on foot by General Gaines, had been followed out by the government, a peace might have been effected, or the ci'y of Mexico occupied long since This would have told well in Europe, and prevented those torrents of abuse, sarcasm, and reproach, which the pressed Paris and London ha e poured on the h>-Bd of Mr. Polk, and the republic of the West. On the contrary, it is much to be feared that the war department, at Washington, imagined they could conquer a peace on the cheap, or Canal street plan?on something like the same principle which a distinguished judicial functionary of New York once saved to that rich State about nine dollars fifty cents, in a certain year, by hav ing a rent in his pantaloons repaired by a Ro. ches'er tailor, at seventy five cents the hole, instead of getting a new pair at once. What a pity that military genius, talent, and energy, wat not allowed to have a proper influence on the military department, instead of censuring its design*, and ordering court* martial upon its acts ! Be this as it may, the United States must prosecute the Mexican war to an honorable conclusion ; and I have no doubt the great body of the people are in their right mind on these points. The eyes of all Europe are upon them?the eyes of the governments, and the eyes of the several people equally. There will be no interference, and no intervention from this side of the Atlantic. Ten years ngo, France and England would have united in such a project; but there is no danger of that now. Each country is too much occupied with its own domestic difficulties?each is too unxious for peace and commerce with the United States?each depends too much on being fed by our corn, and clothed by our cotlou?and, above nil, each of the two governments hate each other cordially, in consequence of the quarrel about the Spanish marriages, ever to return again to tne entente cordiale during the life time of Louis Philippe and Queen Victoria. Indeed, the quarrel on this paltry point, is more a personal quarrel between the sovereigns, than a real national division. Louis Philippe is charged with duping and deceiving Victoria at the Chateau d' Eu?Victoria, in fact, feels that she has been duped; just as if she had been a little forward grisette, wearing a crown; and, hence, she is in a terrible rage with the French king, and the whole Orleans family, declaring that she will uncrown them, and drive them from France one of these day*. While this state of estrangement continues, the power of England and France will be neutralized ; and, accordingly, Ku?s;a iathe East, and the United States in the far West, will have opportunity to t xercise their influence, and extend t'.ieir empire without let or hindrance. 1 had a long interview with the Minister of Commerce, the other day, at which I was assured that the line of four steamers from H ivre to New York will certainly bo carried into operation in the spring, or early in the ensuing summer. Of this determination, I was assured there could be little or no doubt. Tnose ships are to bo hired or let to a company of merchants at Havre. The only point not yet concluded upon is, whether the captains of the vessels shall, during the contract, be under tbe an hority of the government or of the company. I fancy, however, that the latter point will be determined upon. Asamaucrof form, the projeet will be placed bi f jre tbe Chambers to receive tbeir sane, tion, ol which no doubt is entertained. My the time that the line commences, the railroad from Pans to Havre will be complete It is calculat. d that this desirable result will take place in April, if not sooner. As soon as these events shall have been completed, it is calculated that a fresh and remaikable impulse will be given to the intercourse between Pan* and New York, not alone in commercial affairs, but in literary, philosophical, social, and political. The great highway between tbe continent of Europe and the United State* will then be by the lire of Pa<i?, Havre and New York. Vast crowds of travellers wd| go and oame, and a great accession of trade will bo the result. It will be taken into account, hew ever, tliat the French steamers are not so last as the British?ths former will require from on? to thro days more on the voyage across the Atlantic I am nf/aid that the American line, between New | York and Bremen, will, from the competition of the French and English lines, prove not so profitable as its projectors believe. Time, however, which turns a Newton into a handful ol dust and ashes, will tell whether this surmise be true or I not. Tlie Hrofrau of tlse Relief for Ireland and (See tl and. Our readers are aware that the inhabitants of our little sister Jersey City, generously contributed the handsome sum ol' one thousand dollars for the relief of the tarnishing people ol Ireland, which sum they remitted in two dralts; through Horatio N.

The following is the amount subscribed in the several States as far as ascertained :? Sibicriftions in the United States for the Relief of Ireland and Scotland.

Over one thousand | dollars were collected in St. Peter's alone. It ap- i pears also that large and small sums are constantly K?<ng forward for the relief of the starving and destitute, all knowledge ol which is kept from the public on this side of the Atlantic, as the following ! from the Belfast (Ireland) Chronicle of the 23d of ; January shows :? j | The Rtv Doctor Kdgar has received jC338 19a 9,1 from Messrs. Thomas Sudani, James M'Biide, Edward H. Oillilan, William Shaw, ami John Nicholson, subscribed by a lew friends in New York, in consemience of their neru sal of his pamphlet, entitled "Famine in Connaugbt." This sum has heen lodged in the Bat.k of Ireland, to be appropriated, as directed, to the relief of the poor in Connaught. The amount would have heen much larger, had not a public meeting heen convened for the samo object, and it was teemed inexpedient to proceed farther in raising private subscriptions. Several of the gentlemen named ia this extract have also each subscribed five hundred dollars to the general relief fund in this city. We frequently hear of poor persons, poor in i purse hut rich in heart, giving five and ten dollars to be sent to the cabins in Ireland or to the Highlands in Scotland, a mention of which is hardly seen; indeed the donors desire their names to he kept from the sight of the public. There arc thousands of this class of sympathisers for the fauvshed, and their contributions swell?the aggregate to a very large sum. Although the list we have given shows a sub- i scription thus far of #167,834, yet we sincerely ! believe that, without the aid of Congress or any State legislation, the amount that will be sent from this country to Ireland and Scotland before the next harvest will, in food and funds, reach- over halfa million of dollars?a free-will offering from the American heart to the suffering and starving cf Europe. Congress may increase this sum to over a million! t Affairs in Yucatan.?We have received by the Adelaide, lrom Havana, the Diario and the Faro Induttrial to the 14th ult.

It appears that the Americans have abandoned , Carmen; that Com Conner treats the Yucatacoes as demi semi-neutrals; that the revolution in Yucatan is complete; that D. Domingo Bar l ret is named as governor in the place of B&rba1 chan ; and that Campeachy is herealter to be the ' > capital city. The papers are filled with the usual numbeis of decrees, Jtc. From China Direct.?The magnificent clipper ship Rainbow, Capt Hayes, arrived yesterday from Canton, in the short passage of 86 days, bringing accounts nine days later than have been received by the overland mail. We received large files of the China Mail and the friend of China, but can find none among them later than the 2G;h of November, the date of our last news. Capt. Hayes makes no verbal report. The Eastern Mail.?The mail from Boston, due yesterday morning, had net arrived last night, in consequence of the storm.

Singular Cause or a Duel between a Professor and a Nobleman ?A letter received from Vilna, in Russia, stated that a professor had been commissioned to go to Munich to purchase a telescope, which he paid $6,(XX) for, hut requested Mr. Fratinhofier, the maker, to give liirn a receipt for #!) (XX), which he did. Sometime after the profes-or returned to Vilne, a nobleman proceeded to Munich,and purchased one of the same dimensions as the professor's, for which he paid #'6,000. The Astronomical Society finding themselves swindled out of #3,000, told the proles *or that the nobleman was informed by Mr Fraunhoffer that he only paid #6,000. The result was a duel between the professor and the nobleman. in which the former was severely wounded, besides being compelled to refund the #3 (XX) and be imprisoned lor three years, by order of the emperor. fitjr Intelligence.

New York setisl ICrle Railroad. 1 have rrisd with oare the reports both of the majority uad minority of the commissioners te lecate certain porions of the Erie Railroad. The reports, as made to the 1 Legislature, are published together, making No 36 of mh.'Je documents. I cbserve that the company have minted end are circulating the majority report only.? The newspapers teo, of this oity, have made public only he Pennsylvania view of the oase, and speak of tha re>ort of the commissioners as if only one had been made. The report of the majority was made by fourcommislieners, ono of whom is an officer of the company, the ninority report by three commissioners, hy the act oi he Legislature, passed in 1644 appointing commissioners, I hey are required to survey the line between the summit >f Sawanguiik ridge and Deposit, and betweenDepositand liighampton, to ascertain whether a practicable route J lists on which the road can be constructed without treat prejudice to the publio interest of this State, and he interest of the citixons of this State. That a practi able route exists between these points within this State, he seven commissioners are unanimous. It was not inended that anothar route out of the State, should be roferred, simply because it might be eomewhat or even lonsjderably more profitable to the stockholder!. If uch lied been the intention it would have been better t the commencement to have located the road, or a reater portion of it through New Jereey and 'ennsylvania, without any regard to the interest f the citizens of the eouthern tier of counties, for rhese benefit, to a great extent, the charter was ranted to the company. The miuority report saya, It is apparent toua, the Legislature, at tbe time of our ppointment, kept eteadily in view the iuterest of the itizens residing in the vicinity of the interior route.? f tbe intereet of tho company were to be principally retarded. the appointment of the commissioners was a useess enactment. The company, without our interiormen, could, and probably would, have located the road ither inor out of the State, so as to derive the greatest <ossible advantage from the construction." The company in their application to the Legislature or permission to locate their rond in Pike county, in tha Hate ol Pennsylvania, represented the grales through he couutv of Sullivan to be 00 feet per mile. Tho sur reys of the commissioners show that the highest grade d that county i> but 40 feet per mile, which is 16 feet ess than the road now runs ever in Orange, aud 16 and 10 less thau several grades west of it. The expenso of the iulliran county, or interior route, as compared with he Pennsylvania route, (according to the report of the najority of the commissioners, supposing us they do, the -oad to carry 200 000 tons) will stand thus :? '.xtra cost of transportation on the interior rnate, estimated at 4I)? cents per ton.ond-iO, 000 ton $83,000 Oxtra cost for construction on the Pennsylvania route 400 000 nterest on that amount (29,000 tnnual bonus to Pennsylvania 10,000 " extra cost o( repairs 16,000 63,000 ixtra annual cost of the Sullivan county route, $30,000 But the report of the minority of the commissioners, rhoso opinion is entitled to as much weight as the maority, makes the amount stand thus : ? "he above expenses for the Pennsylvania route 63,000 :xtra cost of transportation on Sullivan route 21>i cents per ton on 200,000 ton 43,000 ixtra annual cost of the Pennsylvania route.. $18,000 If the freight exceeds 200,000 tons per annum, the exens? will be proportionally increased, but in such case, le profits of the company will be also increased to that xtent that it can well afl'ord to retain the whole road ritbin the limits of our own State. It ii a matter of great consequence to retain the whole f the route, even at some pecuniary loss, which I ave thown not to be involved. As the report of be rr inority of the commissionsts observes?"it is e eriotts objection to the construction of any part f the road in Pennsylvania, inasmuch as that Hate although confessedly benefitted by the conruction, exacts a tribute from the company, of ill) 000 per annum, besides subjecting the stock of the :ompeny (to the amount expended in that State) to the lame taxation it imposes upon its own works: requiring dso, that the company should permit a connectien with ts road, of any railroad company then chartered or hereafter to he chartered by the State of Pennsylvania, it any point in that State ; requiring the company so to 'cgulate its tolls and charges that they should be at no imn greater per passenger or per ton on the road in this itate west of Elmira than ou an equal distance east of Clraira , requiring that the charge lor transportation of :oal should lie limited to one and a half cents a ten per riile; requiring the said company, under oath, annually o make a statement to the legislature of that State, of its iffairs and business done upon SAid road, and an account >f the number of passengeis, produco, lie., transported in tho whole line ol' said road, and finally icserving the to repeal this act, for violation of any of the irivileges purported to be granted to the company."

M. It appeara to be the general impreaaion in financial circlea that the money market will ateadily tighten, and that there will toon be a greater demand for money, and a more limited aupply, than haa been experienced for a longtime. Should theae anticipationa be realized, quo. tationa for atocka, particularly for those of a lancy nature, must tend downwarda. During the paat week the atock market hai been quiet, and pricea rather feverish, indicating a change of aomo sort; and the chancea are that thia change will he in favor of the bear*. The large importations of apecie into thia country, within the paat twomontha, have not had auch a favorable influ' ence upon the money markot as anticipated, and of courae not auch an effect upon pricea of fancy atocka aa holders looked for. Two or three of the fancies have risen ra pidly; the result of cornering operations; but the toe of the market generally kt* n?l beet klalthy, t td ths.'e appears!i Iccetstderuble difficulty in sustaining prices. Holders o I ir.ost of the stocks used in Wall stroet for speculation aie stranger than usual, as may be seonby the slight II uctuations from day to day, and the bears find it difficult to press down prices; but there are so many little daik spots in the political, commercial, and ilnaucial horizon, likely to increase and spread their evil iofluences, that those operating for a decline in prices certainly have every thing in their favor. The annexed table exhibits the quotations for stocks in this market for each day of the past week, and at the close of the week previous. It will be perceived that prices have been exceedingly uniform. Quotations roa thx Principal Stocks in thb Nkw York Market. Sat'y. Mo'v. Tu*y. We'y.

Harlem Railroad. The number of miles of road in operation is about 43 ? Cost of construction fiom the City Hall to Putnam county, 61 83-100 miles $1,701077 68 Total income from passengers 170.013 44 " " freight 11,883 37 $183 806 17 Expense of running and repairing road for 1846 88,737 47 Net income, 1846 $94,067 70 This is equal to an interest of five and a half per cent on the cost of construction for nearly Afty three miles, only twenty-seven miles of which have been used, frem which the abovo income was derived It is estimated that the nit income from the extension, for 1847, will be about one hundred thousand dollars, which, with the increase in the income from the lower part of the read, will swell the net income for the year, to about two hundred thouiand dollari, equal to an interest of ten per Cent on two millions of dollars. With these prospects, the stock of this company is selling in Wall street, at less than fifty cents on the dollar. Those who are shrewd enough to purchase this stock at present prices, and re tire with it from the market, will, at no very distant day, find it a very valuable and productive investment. At the present moment, we flud the domestic exchange s against us in every direction ; the natural consequence* of an inflated market; and had not this favorable check taken place, every description of public security would have centred hote. We have made ourselves the principal holJers of the most doubtful obligations, and we as. sume to be the proprietors of every worthless conctrn on this side of the Atlantic. To this mania for speculative expansion we are indebted lor the success of the Hudson River Railroad Company, whence the completion of a railroad to Albany has the promise of being indefinitely postponed It is, however, stated that there is yet a chance for relief; the subscriptions having do legal foroe; many ot the subscribers being unwilling to be made the dupes of artificial movement* of thi* nature, will, no doubt, give conditional acceptance* for the fir*t initaluient, to be binding only when the full amount o' tho first payment* tfiall bo collected; or in other word* mukj the payment conditional, and express theio con ifctiona upon the face of the check* given. It i* impossible to tell how far thi* meaiure of precaution may be necei ary to thoie not behind the acene*, who have no advance* or expense* to be liquidated, but by the publio uch an axerciae of discrotion may prove of the higheit importance, viz: the arrest of a moat in*ane project. The abaorption of money by thi* iclieme to defeat the comple' tion of a rout* partially eomtructed, will, without doubt' be extremely alow, and ihould the expenditure* be pread over an extended *erie* of year*, the lo*ae* it will occaiion, will prove more personal than public tacri' flees, except so far as its deleterious influence* may retard the progresa of the interior route. If the maintenance of this mammo'h scheme was all we had to endure, we might bear the burden more easily, but when the resource* of the banks, composed of the aggregate capitals of individuals, and those principally men 0| business, are employed in bolstering up stocks of compa nies foreign to our State, the burden becomes so onerous 'hat more than ordinary forbearance is necessary to induce us to submit willingly. The policy of the banks is to make no loan* on fancy stocks, as it woulJ neither be legal or pruden', but they will loan on other stocks, and giant facilities to lavorite directors and particular customers, for the purpose o purchasing stock securities. As a specimen of the many peculations in which NewYoik funds are constantly engaged, it is only necessary to present for examination the affiirs of tho Norwich and Worcester Railroad Company, from which some estimate msy be formed ol the probable fate of the Hudson River Railroad Compa u/, uuu me v 111Mo ui me investment, arrout which 10 much haa bean nni 1, to tho itockholdera. The capitalist* ol thii city are interested In tliia com panytothe amount of thirteen thousand out of sixtren hoiuan 1 dee hundred and fifty tlrares. and of the debta, about five hundred thousanJ dollara, heing about fourfiftha ol the whole concern. The balance of the Hock haa bean hypothecated, for the aecurity of the 'xrge loana, four thousand shares to the Stato of Masaachu ?."s, one thousand to the city of Norwich, and four hundred and fifty to Jacob Little 4c Company to protect n short loan, made under pecu'iar and pressing circumstances The amounts of this company on the Uth of December, 1848, exhibited the following condl tion ol the concern. he cos* of tho road, exclusive of honits for steamers, was $3,170 490, tho proceeds o: 16 ?>3A shares of the capital stock, and loans upon bonds of $9;0,fi,57; the outlay exctusiro of $60,000 for the extent nn, a locomotivo and twenty freight cars nut yet pel I for. To this sum is to be added $iOfl 0(H) for the purchase of the Cleopatra and Worcester, and the con atrucionof the Atlantic, payable n bond* of the oomperry, at two three and five jeora, from July, 1846 nra king n gross indebtedness of $1 160,367, or which the lier.s of tha State of Massachusetts and the city cf Norwich coyer $000 000 It is very easy to see, train this state nent, the rxtin of our present interest in this company, sir I what must be the posi'ion of those interested, should thero ' ? any danger of insolvency. Should tho company fail to honor its obligations at maturity, tho stockholders must either submit to total loss, or make further ad vancos, to retain possession of tha road. In the a rent of tha claims of the preferred creditor* ?ot being Idischarged. th* claims of our capitalists vill become worthUas, end tha itockbol lin will bo dapr * d of their interact in the work with as little cars m toy ae in the Morria Canal, the Htate of Massachusetts aweoping the whole away. In the construction of the roal, the policy of that Bute ha( been cone'immated The citizene of Button, with their usual fuidtight und intelligence, own very little ef the clock. an J have none of the debt(; ahould a bankruptcy, therefore, take place, the entire concern would be trauaferied, without injury or embarrassment, to ita proper ownen In order to aicertain more conclusively if there if any probability of auch an unfortunate disposal of thia road, it it proper to place before tboee intereated.both at atock holdera and bondholdera, extracts from the statements of the company, for the purpose of thawing whether It has the ability to sustain itself or not We feat, however, that the exposition will have no other effect than to prove to the capitalists and to the business men oi this city, that speculations in tine, and similar enterprises, do not afford the slightest possible inducement for ouch investments of their means. If the mania for speculation cannot be controlled, and we cannot coutlne ourselves to the legitimate channels of trade, we ahould at least make an effort to exercise seme judgment and discrimination in the choice of such investments. We should avoid all stocks of a fancy chataoter, and turn our attention more to those which are really productive. ( The reported gross income of the Norwich 8c Worcester Railroad Company, in ltUl, from road and boat*, was $JJ 1,641, and the estimated groae receipts for 184#, $144,000, which estimate, it it stated, proved to hare been overrated several thousand* of dollar* in consequence of the loss of the Atlantic ; but for the purpose of showing the probablo business of 1847, and through it the future prespecte of th* company, we have put down the receipts at the eitimtte, for tt is year Hnwica tits WoioHSTii Riicaosa. Estimated rceipts $s*?,00t> Expense of ruuning road same as in 1X40 $*tl,000 To net loss by running steamers 60,000 Intereaton dsbt of $1,188,367 60 *00 300.600 Balance in favor of company 1047 $37,*00 In order to meet several vary urgent demands this has not nnlv alriiadv haan emended, but the , , r . company ii making groat effort* to rai?e a further turn of $100,000, ami hare succeeded in making temporary loans on a deposit of their bend*, at fifty cents on the dollar, and in some instances have sold their bonds at ten por cent discount, by which operation they odd so much to the aggregate indebtedness. By taking this as data in making estimates of tho annual business of the company up to tho year 1050, there does not appear to us any possibi sty of making a single dividend, unless the credit of the company materially improves, and it is able te extend its debts, a result abso lutely necessary for the safety of the company, leaving individuals entirely out of the question Without taking into tho account the necessity of replacing the Atlantic, at an expense ot about $150,000, to keep up the income for 1648, to our estimate, we will put down tho gross recoipts of that year at an amount exceeding that of 1847 NORWICH AND WORCESTER RAILROAD. 1848?Estimated income $360,000 Running expenses ot road, Interest and loss, on running steamers $300 500 Sinking fund, tor extension road '30,000 Sinking fund, to pay bonds for boats.. *30,000 1'riucinnl of rieht unnuallv to ri'v of Norwich, lie 60,000 ?390,600 Balance against the company $43,600 It muit he admitted that tue situation of tho company, under such circumstances, is extremely critical. If the place of the*-Atlantic is not filled, and the Cleopatra rebuilt, this road cannot compete successfully with rival routes, and its inceme will be materially reduced, tending to an increase of the financial embarrassment of the company, and a more rapid approach to bankruptcy, The history, position and embarrassments of this company, are sufficient to induce every one not to connect themselves, as stockholders, with any of the fancy securities of the day, and to avoid all projects they do not perfectly understand, or which have any evidence of the foroed results, such for instance as paying interest on instalments out of the capital; a mo lern way of filling up subscriptions, where the prospective profits of the work contemplated are not a |snlficient inducement |for such investments.

Naw York, Saturdat ArTsanoo*, Feb. 27. A heavy rain storm prevailed through the entire day, melting the snow and ice In its descent, and deluging the streets with water, which rendered all out door business in a measure imprabticable. This also being packet day for the Cambria, 'Change was thinly attended, and transactions were very limited, without any material ohange in prices since last report. Owing to the report1 ed arrival of a large number of vessels, freights were leas Arm ; which had the effect of imparting greater Armnrss to the grain end flour market*. SaUis of (Jenexee were made on the spot, at $7, but holders grew stiff, and refused to moot buyers in a large way, at that price. Southern was also sorao firmer. A sale of country re J wheat was made at 140c. The corn market, in the prospect of cheaper freights, was also Armer at yesterday's rates.
