rr NEW YORK HERALD. <tw York, Thurtdaf, March ?, 1H47. New* from Mexico. We give in the Herald of this morning the details of the news from the seat of war. It is important, us indicating the extensive preparations makingl0T 'he attack on Vera Cruz. We shall probably hear in about a month of the investment of that city by our troops. Twaddle in Congress?Waste of Time?The Close of the Session. A portion of the members of the present Congress must undoubedly be demented or atllicted in some way equally as melancholy. Wo must in charity give this interpretation to their extraordinary oonduct. They must to a certainty be stark, staring mad, or they never would fritter away a whole session, in a crisis like the one in which the country is now placed. What confirms us in this opinion is, that they adhere to the last moment to the insane policy they pursued at the beginning, and fritter away their tune in twaddle and nonsense, whilst every Knur I. nf mnra nnnapcueiicc than a dav or a week would be at any other time. Thus we see Mr. Benton, the day before yesterday, discussing for throe mortal and wearisome hours a resolution directing the Secretary of the henate to contract with a reporter to furnish the proceedings and debates o( the Senate to the daily papers, or to pri t them himself if they declined, at a time when the Senate had more business, of the greatest impoitance before them, than they oould possibly act upon within the limited time that remained of the session. We are, indeed, amazed to find a man occupying the position that Mr. Benton does, ac'ing in this way, and can account for such ex'rao'dinary conduct in no other manner than by inferring that his mind had taken temporary leave of him. Pefore this sheet shall have reached the capital, the twenty-ninth session of Congress will have bee n numbered with the past; but we hope, for the honor of the country, and the reputation of our gi-at men, that the last day of the session was not o< copied in such puerile business as that wt inn we ba^e here spolct-n of S mi- Iroers and reports from Washington, in ano li-r column o< tins day's pap-r. Ireland and Its Evils ?Trie Proposed Remedy of the BilUsls Government. Tne condition of ihe Irish people receives a 1 great deal of attention from the press and people of England, at the present time. There is but one opinion, and that is, that some substantial and comprehensive system of relief must be carried . out, which will not only relieve the temporary rtistress ot the people, out also produce perma- j lient amelioration in the condition of a vast number of the peasantry. With this view, Lord John Russell brought forward a scheme in the House of Lords, on the 25th of January last, and from the sketch or outline of it, which we publish in another column of this day's Herald, we are of opinion that it will, partially, at all events, remedy the evils that have so long existed in that part of tho British nation. He proposes that the government advance money enough to purchase seed for the next crop, to all whose circumstances are so bad as to be in want of means to purchase. He also proposes to advance money to such of the landowners as wish to improve and reclaim waste lands, or lor the government to buy those waste lands, reclaim them, and then sell them in small lots lor the purpose of creating a yeoman proprietory, to fill up the void between the peasant and the present race of landlords. With such of the landlords as will neither improve their waste lands themselves, rer dispose of them to the government to be by them improved, he proposes that a law be passed, empowering the government to buy them at a fair v&iuation. this scheme be carried out, of which theie is not much doubt, it will certainly go some wuy toward* ameliorating the condition of 1 roland_ But would it not he better to apply the axe to the root of the evil at once. It cannot be supposed that this scheme will remove the terribly oppressive burdens that have rested so heavily on the Irish people since the union of 1900. Let the terms of that union be carried out by England? let Ireland and the Irish people be put on a political equality with England?let the ratio of representation be the same inlreland as itis inEnglnnd, and all these evils will be dissipated. Ireland is not ruled by Irishmen. She is ruled by Englishmen, many of whom are unacquainted with the cause of the evils that afflict her. Let her be ruled by those who have been barn and nurtured on her soil; by those who have suffered under those wVils, and who know the remedy. Ireland would be ruled by Irishmen.if the ratio of representation that prevails in England prevailed there likewise The famine in Ireland will produce dreadful suffering among her people; but it will cause a regeneration, which will place her in the position she long since ought to have occupied. ???????? Naval I.vrxLLiogNCE ?The U. S. stenmers Scorpion and Scourge, destined for the Gulf, the former under the command of Captain Bigelow, and the latter commanded by Lieut. Chas. G. Hunter, sailed from the Brooklyn Navy Yard yesterday. They wil' co-operate with ihe squadron in the contemplated attack on Vera Cruz, and we have no doubt will render good service. The officers of the Scorpion, and Scourge, are young and active, and possess all the requisite experience necessary for energetic and successful action. In the selection of their officers the Secretary of the Navy, Mr. Mason, has displayed his usuai discrimination. The Plymouth is not ready to sail, nor is she being fitted our, as has been stated, but still remains at the yard. The greatest activity prevails there in fitting out the bemb vessels?the Vesuvius, Hecla, and i.lectra, and the work generally is progressing With great spirit and efficiency. We are happy to learn that the order from Washington, regulating the hours of labor at the Navy Yards, was, most wisely, not enforced at the Brooklyn yard, or we would probably have had to record astmilar expression from the workmen there, to that exhibited at the Philadelphia and Washington yards. By the wisdom and good sense of the efficient and popular commandant of the yard, the government has been spared the mortification of seeing the public business suspended in the enforcement of an obnoxious order. Hsuir ro Ireland.?-Wo give in another column the official accounts of the proceeds of the Relief Ball given at Castle Garden on the 10:h nit. The amount, #142(1, which the Mayor acknowledges in a receipt, from the hands of C. 1,1. Murray, fcieq , is much larger than was anticipated, and certainly does great credit to the originators. Thk Latest from Havana.?1The Ohilde Harold arrived yesterday Iroth Havana, with papers t > the 17lit ult. inclusive. Our files of the Diarin rire to that date. They contain no news of any i i n porta nee to this country. Eastern Papers ?Through the kindness oi Mr. Cloyes, of the New Haven route, we were favored at an early hour last night with Boston papers of yesterday morning. What Nkxt*?Father Ritchie, of the f/nion, positively that he will not accept the office pf Vice President of &e United fcftatas, j Thi Warkhovsinq Ststsm.?1This bill hat been , in operation only about six months, and those i who have made use of the facilities it affords for ! importing, storing, and disposing of foreign merchandise, And it all the meat sanguine ever antit cipa ed; but there are many who have an erroneous idea of the system, and labor under the impression that the warehousing of goods is attended with so many delays and dilHculties, that they have avoided having anything to do with it. It is a new feature in our import trade, and in time it ' would become generally understood and generally adopted; but we wish to place its advantages before the commercial community, that it may be immediately beneficial. To the importer, ol i limited means, it will be found of incalculable importance, as it will enable him to do a more extensive business upon his capital, than he could | under any other system. It plaoes him upen a par with his competitors ol large reseurces, and enables him to buy and sell goeds without forcing his credit. His capital is not reduced by the payj ment of duties, weeks and perhaps months before he disposes ol his merchandise, and transfers can be made from the warehouse to his customers without the goods passing through his hands. Under authority granted in the warehousing act, the Secretary of the Treasury has engrafted upon it a new feature or privilege, intended for the greater accommodation of the importing merchants;*,we allude to the issuing of certificates of warehoused goods?which certificates stand in much the same relation to warehoused merchandise, that bank bills stand to the bullion in the bank's vaults. The following is the form of the certificate:? UNITED STATES BONDED WAREHOUSE, NO. 1. No Nsw York, 184 . 1 certify, that according to the invoice and bill of lading | produced at Ike t'mtom House on the entry thereof, A. B , the owner of the following goods, wares and marchesi dise now deposited in the United 8tates Bonded Ware1 house at this port, at the expense and risk of the owner , i which goods were imported by 0 D , en the 184 ,iuthe Master, fiom [A] No 'J. One case Linens I further certify, that the d':'i?bie value of tail goods, wares end merchandise, scoop Iff to the app'aisement | made by the United tMatee app'aisus for this port, is one hundred uo) are , Register. Theupsign of tliis certificate is to aft" >rd 'o importers every facil ty and advantage, without impairing the securi'y of the government for the colb r i -n of duties Thes- certificates are transfe ah|e by ei dorsement, and the holder only can withdraw i he merchandise from tie warehouse. This enables the importer to obtain advances on his goods at any time, without transferring them, by merely endorsing the certificate over to the party making the advance, by which the holder only has the privilege of withdrawing them; it being always considered at the Custom House, that the holder of the certificate has the only claim to them. The certificate can be procured at any time by ; making application to D. F. Barhydt, Esq., the ' register at the Custom House, to whom the merchants are very rnnch indebted, for the simplicity | of the lorms necessary in perfecting this important ' system. The holder of the certificate, wishing to with| draw the goods, first makes out three copies of withdrawal entries, takes them with the certificate to the register's office, the register cancels the certificate, and the holder proceeds with it and the entries to the entry elerk, and the usual forms and steps follow. If part of the goods j stated in the certificate are to be withdrawn, the same steps are to be taken; and the register in cancelling the old certificate, gives a new one for the portion not specified in the withdrawal entry Cltjr Intelligence. The Weather.?Yesterday may be deemed the flret day of spring?the weather being soft and mild. The atreetf were crowded with pedeitriana, aed rarely have we seen Broadway so thronged with fashionables. Thk Funeral OnssquiKs.?The remains of Captains , Morris, Field and Williams will be received, on arrival I here, with military honors. The following is the ORDEB or THE PROCESSION.

Suicn r I'he Coroner was called to hold an inquest at No 91 James rtmet, upon the body of Hamilton Rain, a native ol Ireland, age,I -is year', who committed suicide by hanging himself inuie loom which he occupied. It appeared Itorn the evi ence adduced before the coroner, that the deceased, a tailor hy trade, was intemperate in bis habits, and that while laboring under the influencs of liquor, treated his wife in a brutal manner; that on .VloDiiay last, tha Utter, on > ccourit of having been se verely beaten hy the deceased, left home and did not re turn, which ciroumstanca appeared to give him greet un ebsinesa; that the deceased yesterday told his son, as the latter was about going to his wotk that he would no' ! see hiir. again, as be would not live any longer in sucfc | a state, anil b.d his son rood bye ; but as the deceased hac i previously made use of similar expressions, litile or nc regard was paid to what he said on the subject ? . The son on rsiurnlDg to his dinner however, found aoint difficulty in oneninr the room door, iu c.onsenuer.r-? nf chest having been placed against it. The <:oor being fi [ nally op.ned, the young man discovered b e lifelesi body of his father on the flour, by the side o the chest, with a rope around his neck. As nc hook, nail or any other kind of projection to whicl the [rope could be suspended, was found, the younf man was taken into custody, on suspicion ef taring beet guilty of foul |>lay, and several hours elapsed before i was satisfactorily ascertained that the deceased, after ty ing a knot in the end of the rope, passed it over the to| ot the door, which wee then closed and the chest pu against it, mounted upou the chest, sfHxed the noosi around his neck, and then by throwing the weight ofbii body upon tho rope, accomplished his purpose. The soi was therefore discharged from custody. Hocsr. Huarmii.? Yesterday, the weather being s< , fine, we observed an immense number of "local cmi grants," on the look ou' for new quarters. Several billi ware accordingly taken down, and several were etucl up in consequence.

Italian Otb?a ?The new op?ra, " I Lombardi," wu produced la?t night at Palmo'a, in a etyle fully equal to tke high eipectatione which had bean railed concerning 1 it. The effect of the icenery in the firat act ii incomparably fuperior to any thing before attempted by the managera.

(Jiselda's thoughts meanwhile bad centered in Oronte, forgetting her parents, countrymen, and even her faith; but Sophia had induced Oronte to embrace Christianity, which he was disposed to do to be united to Uiselda. During the storming of the city, however, Oronte was killed. Pagano, the foremost in assaulting the walls, fell mortally wounded, but before expiring, made himself known, and obtained his brother's paidon Giselda returned to her father's bosom, and the Christiana entered triumphantly into Jerusalem. "1 Lombard#" will be repeated tonight. Christy's Minstrels ?This Inimitable baud of Ethiopian vocalists and rausioians give their farewell entertainment at the new Concert Hall, Newark, thieevening. Their coucerti there have been attended by mere numeroue and fashionable audience* than any company who havo visited Newark for years From their general success throughout the Union, we are not sstonished that they should ba so Weil patronised in Newark They are very talented and witty, and well deserve the enoumitiras bestowed upon thsaa. Aid to Scotland ?A grand musical entertainment, in aid of tbe poor of Scotland, will be given at the Tabernacle, on Monday evening next, 8th March. Mrs. Strong, i Miss Pearson, the Alleghanians, Mr Whitney, Mr. Cliiehugh, and others, as also some of the most eminent musical gentlemen, Mr. Ueorge Loder. Mr. Tinim, and Mr. Austin Phillips, will each try tbe effect of music upon the soul of benevolence on that evening. Henry Hers gave two concerts at New Orleans, on j the evenings of the illd and 'J31 uit They were annua need as his last pariormancaa, previous te leaving for Havana. Thtstrlraii, Fabx Thiatrb.?The Dnnnuni Vitnnoit* continue to-carry all before tham. There appears to be no limit to the enthusiasm they create. Once seeing them is not nough, lor all who witness their extraordinary and ! novel performaneos, are irresistibly attraoted to see 1 them again. Nor is this to be wondered at, for never I have we had presented on our stage any thing that could | approximate to the exhibition which these agile and talented little girls afford. In them is seen natural < grace and beauty to the fullest extent. They have, to ba | aura, bean educated, if the tern is applicable, to a certain extent by their preceptress, Madame Wiess, but the effect of that education does not mar, but davalepes the ! grace that is natural, and which we in vain look for in i an advanced stage of life. The natural abandon of youth is in them seen in its perfection, as well as the effects of art in their training. BowebyThkatbe?There wa? an immense aisemblage ( | at the Bowery last evening, to witneai the performance 1 of the new national patriotic drama entitled " Ethan Allen, or the Ureen Mountain Boya of 1778," 'The very 1 uperior caat with which the piece waa represented, ( would be sufficient to insure it that success which it has , deservedly gained since its first introduction. Neafie, Stevens, Clark, Hadaway, Chapman, Vache, and the entire company, acquitted themselves with their usual ability. Mrs. Booth as Nemeneca, an Indian Squaw, sustained the part with extreme cleverness. As a national drama, " Ethan Allen" possesses much merit, and its reception hero every evening since Monday last, is highly flattering to the author of the piece, as well as to the high talents of the performers. The Hibernian dramatio spectacle of " Brian Boroihme" succeeded. A varietv of ; new attractions will be shortly presented here, of which due notice will be given. Through the able and liberal management of Mr. Jackson, the enterprising manager, ; tho patrons of this popular theatre are nightly entertained witu the leading attractions of tlie day. ObeebIvioh Theatre.?In consequence of the temporary indisposition of Mr. Dunn, "The Dumb Belle," ' was substituted here last evening for the "Angel of the ! Attic " Signora C.'occa and Signor Morra again appear \ ed in a grand "Pas de Deux," and their appearance was | greeted with unbounded applause by a full house The : Italian dancers have added considerably to the attrac- > tions presented here since the opening of this popular theatre for the preient season, and no expense, it would appear, haa been spared to render them worthy of the 1 support of the numerous patrons of this popular place of evening reereation. Those who have not yet seen the Italian dancers, should not lose the present opportunity that presents itself here. The acknowledged ability of Signore Ciocca and dig nor Morra gives,them already a very high stand as (he most acknowledged ability of celebrated Italian dancers of the day. Bowaar Circus.?All the fun and novelty in the way { of amusements seem to be monopolised at the Circus. This evening the Albino Minatrals, a sort of musical fusus nature, are to be added to the attractions of this ' popular place of amusement. Mr. Hobbs will repeat his 1 tremendous " somerset act of horsemanship;" the infant Macfarland will exhibit his wonders upon the tight rope; I Ooosin, always at home, will amuse the million with his , inexhaustible fund ol humor; and " Jack, the Uiant Killer," which was omitted last night in consequence of the illness of Major Stevens, will be repeated. The Amphi. j theatre is now the great resort of citizens and strangers." The Seguins are doing a groat business in Charleston Mr James Wallack took a benefit at the Mobile thea- j tre on the night of the 22d nit. He is re-engaged. Dan Marble is still amusing his Savannah friends. j Mrs. Mowatt and Mr. Davenport are still playing at Mobile. Mr. Anderson was still at the St. Charles, New Orleans, on the 23d. ___________ Law Intelligence. Suvbrior Court, March 3 ?Before Chief Justice Jones.? Richard Hayes et.JiiapK Stent tt at ?This cause was summed up this evening, and the Chief Justice, after detailing the history of the case, left it to the Jury to say, under the evidence, was there such a custom as that set up by the defendant's counsel. If there was no such custom, then they should find a verdict for the plaintiffs; lor the Court of Errors had laid it ; down as a rule of law, which bound them all, that an : agent cannot purchase hills on his own credit, and remit i thorn to his principal, while be retaiiied the money of the latter in bis own hands, and used it lor his own purposes; i but if they found that such a custom existed in 1837. then they were to enquire if the defendants brought themselves within it, by purchasing an undoubted bill ; that is, that the person whose bill it was, was of such stand- ; ing and credit in the community, as put it beyond auy reasonable doubt that the bill would be dishonoied.

Thli trial wa? teiuned at the apaa lug of colli thid menUng' ?* * Pr Thoma* ileltaee' who mad* a poit mortem examination of the body of Patrick Muldoon, waa called aa a witneaa on the part of the proaecution. Ha teatiiied to the character of the marka of violence that were found upon the bodr of Muldoon, and that hia death waa undoubtedly caused by the injuriea hs had received; but whether theae iujuriea were the reault of a fall, or blows inflicted by the accuaed, it waa impossible to aay. On the part of the accused, it waa ahewn by aeveral witnesaea that he had previoualy auatained a food character; that the deceaaed waa a peraon of intemperate hebita, and (according to the teatimony of Dr. Holmea in hia cross-examination) could not have lived much longer. The caae waa aut> mitted without argument of counael, and the Jury, under charge of the court, found the accuaed guilty of manslaughter in the fourth degree, whereupon he waa aentenced to be lmpriaoned in the Penitentiary for the term of one year. Trial for Burglury.?A German, by the name of Joaeph Kberly, waa then called to trial, on a charge of i having on the night of the 11th of January laat, forced open a window abutter from the jewelry atore of Mr. i ltogera. No 3 Chambera atreet, cut a hole in a pane of ! glaaa, and abatracted from the window aome ailver watches. On the part of the proaecution, it waa abown j in evidence, that officer O'Neil obaerved the accuaed on , the night in question, lurking about the premiaee of Mr. Hogera under auapicioua circumatancea, and accordingly watched hia movementa; he waa aeen to remove one of of the rhuttera, and ahortly afterward! decamp with aomathing which he tojk from the window, when he waa puraued, overtaken, and after a hard atruggle waa aecured, by the aaaiatance of another policeman, at d j taken to the Tomba, where he made another deaperate ' attempt to effect hia escape , that upon being aearched at the station bouae.two ailver watches, and a,number of j tools used by burglars, wore found in bis possession ? | The jury, without leaving their seats, found the accuaed j guilty of burglary in th* thiri dogrse, and tne louri sentenced him to th* State priaon for three years. It we* thowu in the coarse of the trial that the prisoner had only been in the country for fifteen days at th? time that he was detected in the commission of this burglary; and failing to escape from the station house, he sttemp'ed, and nearly succeeded in taking his own life by cutting a deep gash in one of his arm with a piece of a glass bottle which he had in his celt.

We see by this report, that $6,706,600 of treasury notes have been issued under the aot 01 JUly S'JCI, 1040; irom mis IICI wo buouiu juug* u>?? m* loan of lire million*, for which prepoaala were invited' had not all been taken ae haa been generally aappoeed' and that the deflcienoy wai made up by the issue of | treasury notes. It has been generally supposed that under the act of July 33d, 1848, authorising the govern| ment to raise ten millions of dollars, Are millions was raised by an issue of treasury notes and fire millions by a loan bearing six per cent, payable in 1868; but such is not.the esse, according to recent reports from the Treasury Department. , |The proposals for eighteen millions of the new loan,will be reoelrad at the Treasury Department, until the 10th of April next. Should bids for the whole amount be received and the amount taken, the government will be in funds to carry on the war for more than a year, and the revenue from customs can be appropriated to the support of the oivil departments of the Government We shall then have the Independent Treasury in full operation, and all the benefits of that system will be prectioally illustrated. The demands upon the revenue from customs will not be so pressing then as they are now, and as the treasury notes become funded, the payments into the custom house will be almost entirely gold and silvar, and ^the accumulatio in the sub treasury will, in the event of an extensive import trade, be large enough to compel the banks to keep within proper limits. From this time, the bank will be more or less under the influence of the indepen dent treasury, and when the finances of the governmen become so much settled thet the ordinary expenditure only will be required from the ordinary sources of revenue, there must be a decline in prices for every rpecies oj property, to correspond with the increased value o money, a free and full operations of that system will produce. Everything must come down to a specie tenlard; the enlorcement of the independent treasury act will bring into existence a currency approaching nearer a specie value, than we ever yet had, ami ths value of property, of every description, must assimiiaU to that standard.
