? N KVV YORK H Eli A ID. J(?w Vorh, Tueailny, Miifh #, IM7. Agent In Hertford. The tgeiit fjr the Hnali in Hartford, Connecticut, it Sit Abrahtm Rose The Volunteer *>j at. m?TUe St-in cling Army of Amrrlra. When 8 state ol v/ar was decreed by Congress to exist between the United Stales and Mexico, by the Congress of the former country, the miliT.iry enthusiasm ol our people was at its height. Our soil had been invaded, and the blood of cur countrymen had been spilt by the soldiers of a neighboring republic, from whom we had sustained insult and injury to a degree never before submitted to by a powerful country from a wealt one. To repel the invaders and re-establish the peaceful relations of the two countries, as well a* to recover the expenses of so doing, the Congress O. the United States placed at the disposal ol the President, the sum of ten millions of dollars, and authorized him to call into service an army of fifty thousand volunteers. The moment these measures were promulgated u> the people, myriads ol our fellow citizens enrolled themselves among the defenders of their country. The Present and Secretary of War were besieged night a id day by an army of officers, soliciting perinist ion to take part in the war; and we are credibly informed that within two mouths after the passage of the ten millions bill, the names of over t wo hundred thousand men, composing the bone and sinew of their respective places of residence were entered on the books of the War Department, every one of whom was anxious to take part in (he war. Business was laid aside, and nothing but the war thought of. The carpenter forsook his bench?the anvil no longer resounded to die stroke of the blacksmith's hammer?tho ! farmer forsook his plough, and with his rifle | in hand, eagerly joined the ranks of volunteers, and nervously awaited the summons that would call him to the wars. It seemed, in deed, as if the whole nation were willing to ha- i zird their lives arid their all to drive the inva rlers of iheir country from our soil, and revenge the lives of their fellow citiiens who had been slain by our semi-barbarous enemies. As a matter of course, the President could not employ sll who desired to volunteer. We mention these circumstances only for the yorpo?e of showing the intense enthusiasm for volunteering that existed the moment war was acknowledge t to exist between the United States and Mexico. But while this mania for vo- 1 lunteering existed, the recruiting officer of the regular army experienced great difficulty in enlisting men. All wero ready i and willing to volunteer and march at a day's 1 notice, but none, comparatively speaking, would enlist in the regular service. Wo alluded to these facts at the time of their occurrence, fur the purpose of showing that the American people disliked the idea cf fighting lor any master for pay; but that when their country was invaded, ! they would volunteer to rep. 1 the enemy, and defend their homes and firesides. With these facts before us, it may be asked why did not Congress authorise the enlistment of volunteers, instead ol regulars, by the ten re- ( giment bill recently passed* The number authorized could have been obtained in this State ulone, within a week after it passed, and ten times the number could have been obtained within the same time in the United States. Gene* ml Houston and otner members oi the senate, exerted themselves to this effect, but in vain. The till passed, and included regulars. We think we can account lor the reason, and e have no doubt that our readers will agree with us that it u the right one. The fact is, that the conduct of some of our volunteers is not what it should he. We are credibly informed that the volnn'eers who were encamped a short time on irovernor's Island, in this harbor, committed a great many indiscretions, anil destroyed and injuied much of the pubhc property there. The newspapers mentioned instances of unsoldierly nad riotous conduct by the Philadelphia Bouncers and Killers, as they were called, in New Orleans, doms of the Western volunteers, too, are not exempt from this charge, il report speaks true. These acts, although perhaps committed by only a few, injured the character of the whole body of volunteers, and induced the majority in Congress to prefer regulars. We regret this very much, because it implies u censure on the volunteering system ol the country?a system which we must, from the nature ot our institutions and government, always place reliance upon for the defence of our country. If the penalty could be inflicted on the guilty alone, and not on all indiscriminately, the guilty alone would suffer; but in a regiment of volunteers this ic next to an impossibility. V/o would, therefore, impress on our volunteers, for their own sake, ns well as that of their c. intry, 'ue nocessity of good disciplme and well r hul..icd conduct. They have a double duty to perform. They have not only to light the battles of their country, as soldiers, but they have to uphold their dignity as citizens of this great country. American Sympathy?Relief or 1rklani> and ' Scotland.?Just at the close of the late session, tho fallowing resolution passed the Senate and Lectin a law i? ^Hby the Senate and House of Rsprcsentabrcs o! t.ij L"states ot America in Congress assembled, That tho Secretary of the Navy bo ami Lie ,ia hereby autuon ej to place at the dispoaal of Captain weorge C. he Kay, ot New Jersey, tha United States ship MacedoTiian, lor th.: purpose oj transporting to the famishiDg p iur of Ireland and Heotland such contributions as may ha made (or their relief ; and that the said Secretary bo Ulan autuorii ed to place at the disposal of Capt. Robert 11. Koibat.of Bosten, the Cnited sloop of war Jamestown for tho like purpose ; or, if the Secretary shall he ot opiniouthat the public interest will he better subserved thereby, ho is authorised to despatch said vessels upon tho service uforetaid as public ships. That is sympathy which will carry a blessing vi: it Many a heart will be made glad at tho sight, and, better still, at the taste of the food which will go out in the Macedonian. Captain lie Kay, whose nunte is mentioned in the resolution, has been chiefly instrumental in bringing about this excellent measure The Captain is an American by birth and education. His life has been somewhat eventful. He formerly held a midshipman's warrant in the navy of tire United States. Leaving the American serv co about 1826, he entered tho Argentine navy, and lought his way from an humble rank to that of commodore. His family connexions are good, his wife being irom the old Knickerbocker stock. It is fortunate for the suffering poor elScotland and Ireland that they found so active an advocate as Captain De K. The Macedonian will be at the dock in about a week to commence taking m a cargo of flour and other articles of food. .Sixteen thousand barrels ol flour will be put on board immediately, and the good old Irigate will in less than a month bo dancinir HCrns* tha nrmn u/hii.h aha lm traversed bo often, bearing precious freight.? he Macedonian is almost the last of the ? nps captured by the Americans Irom the English in the last wai And it is a happy rei'. iction that she goes to her lormer home, whence lii saiied thirty o Jd y?ars art j laden with the imI .,ments of d-sath, carrying the staff of life to ilf ring thousands?a missionary ship, bound on k voyage of humanity, fnis is an act worthy of .

The Is i i?b government sent out tne Macedonian with p iwder and halls to deal death among our sailors h it <.ur tars took the king's ship away from the k ,i ,'a subjects, and now a Yankee sailor, by per, - on of an American Congress, govs back with I ho man-of-war deeply laden with the products i > peace. Fire ad m return (or cannon balls! lr pot this good for evil F The fffsu Pavement and the Common Council ?When Mr. Ruts applied to the city lcg'slatori for permisMon :o lay his sample block ol pavement in Bro>ul ay, ihe privilege was granted, but not a penny offer- d to aid the enterprise, which if snccesslul /as to benefit the Corporation very materially. The work was accomplished, however, by individual exeition, and the experiment resulted in the realization of the most san- j guine hopes of all interested in the work. Mr. Russ then, conscious of having done a good work for the city at a great expense to himself, applied to the proper authorities for a reasonable remuneration for his labor and material furnished. But the sages of the City Hall, instead of voting the money and a medal to boot, or at least their thanks, te Mr. R , got up a long talk, said much about the effects of the elements upon the granite and cement, questioned the propiiety of paying for a job until it had been tested, and finally refused to pay the bill. They said they wanted to wintor the job and see what effect the frost would havf upon it. Well, the winter is over; the pave. mem ua? uppii u icu uuu iuuiiu iiul wanuD|(. n only remains, therefore, for the Common Council to pay for the work, adding to the face of the bill an amount equal to what Mr. R. could have made with his capital if it had not been lying all this time in Broadway. Having paid the first bill, the guardians of the city's welfare could not do better than to contract for the same excellent pavement to be laid in Broadway from the Battery to Union Square The following table, which we have procured from a reliable source, shows the required outlay and the saving which would ultimately result from it. Official documents furnish the data upon which the estimates are based i? Appropriation! for repairing streets, from 1st of May te Ut October, 1846 $48 000 00 Amount probably expended on Broadway, for repairs, in 1841 28 000 no 33,000 00 Cost of Buss pavement for all Broadway $397,000 Intereat on above amount, at 0 per cent, per annum 17,830 Amount saved in sweeping Broadway, with (aid pavement 8,000 Reducing amount of intereat to 9.830 00 ' Amount raved per annum $13,180 00 : It would therefore require but 14 years to repay the whole amount, leaving a balance of $2l,962 27, at the expiration of s&id time, which amount : may be expended in the meantime for the remo- ; val of pavement for laying pipes, lie. Here, then, are the figures, proving as clearly as figures can prove it, that the city will be the gainer by the operation, to say nothing of the comfort and beauty of having an even, smooth and clean- I ly floor for our much praised grand thoroughfare. What Alderman will deserve the thanks of the j whole city by urging forward this excellent measure 7 The Mails bktwkkn New York and Philadkl. phia ?We publish in to-day's paper the reply of i the executive committee ol the Deleware and Raritan Canal, and Camden and Amboy llailroad Companies, to a latter addressed to the Hon. C. W. Hopkins, by the Postmaster General, on the transportation of the mails between this city and Philadelphia. The controversy between the department and these companies was commenced by Postmaster Johnson; but from what we have read of the reply, we should say that ho has got the worst of it However, our readers can form 1 their own opinions This document reviews both sides of the question, in an able and impartial manner. Decision of the Supreme Court on thk License Law.?The right of the States to regulate the trade in ardent rp>rits, by granting licenses for the sale of alcaholic liquors, has been questioned by many ablelaayeis The Supreme Court, jus t belore the close of :he la;e term, gave a decision which will sefle this point, so far as the right of the several States 10 enact license laws, &c , is concerned. The uecis'on of the Court is, that each State has a right to enact such laws to regulate the trade as they may deem advisable.

The Cask of Calvin Rttss ?It will be remembered, that about five weeks since, Russ was tried for cutting his wife's throat in the month of October last, at a house in White street, found guilty of murder in tbe first degree, and sentenced to be hanged on Friday next. We now learn that a 1 communication was received in town yesterday, from Mr. Clinton, ono of his counsel, that his sentence has been commuted to imprisonment for ' life. New Post Office Law.?We believe that two letters can no longer go in one envelopo to different persons; but two letters may go to one and the same person. This is a silly law. Navigation of the Hudson.?If the present mild weather continues, the river will soon be I open to Albany. Important Law.?Tlie following bill, relative to proceedings in admiralty, has become a law. It will bo recollected we strongly urged its passage, and we are glad to see that our exertions were crowned with success. The merchants of this city, and the seaman, have a deep interest in the matter. Bo it enacted, W"., That in any cue brought in the courts ol the United States exercising jurisdiction in admiralty, where a warrant of arrest, or other process in rem, shall be issued, it shell be the duty of the marshal ' to atay the execution of such process, or to discharge the property arrested, if the same has besn levied, on receiving fiom the claimant of the same a bond or stipulation in double tho amount claimed by the libellant, with auffl cieut surety, to be approved by tbe judge of the ssid court, or in his absence by the collector ol the port, condition! d to abide am) answer tbe decree of the court in such cause ; and such bood or stipulation shall lie returned to tbe said court, and judgment on the same, both against the principal and sureties, may be recorded at the time of rendering the decree in the original cause: Piovlded, That the entile costs in any such case, in which the amount recovered by the libellant shall not exceed ono hundred dollars, shall not be more than fifty per cent, of the amount recovered in the same : which costs shall bo applied first to the payment of the usual fees lor witnesses, and tbe commissioner, where a commissioner shall act on the case, and tbe residue to be divided pro rata between th? cleik and marshal, under tbe direction of the judge of the coui t where tbe cause may be tried: Provided, further, That no attorney's or proctor'* fees shall be allowed or paid out of the said coat*.

( We have received the Bi itiih Packtt, published at Buenos Ayres, to the 12;h of December, incluoive. It contains some highly interesting intelligence relativo to the troubles between Buenos Ayrcs, Montevideo, and Paraguay, and the intervention of the Americans?Messrs. Brent and Graham. The blockade of Buenos Ayres continued. It had been in operation four hundred and forty-one days, on the 12 h. Slavery is abolished in the Oriental Republic ol Uruguay. It appears that llivera had made no important movement. At the last accounts he was at Las Vivoras. The British Packit states that there was a strong force of three armies in the field ready to crush him wliencver he removed to any distance from the coast. Annexed are a few interesting extracts: ? 1 [From the Buenos Ayre* Packet, Dec. 13.1 i Although we spoke advisedly in our laet when we hinted at the eimeter influence exercised in Paraguay 1 by Brazilian diplomi-cy, we were uuawaro at the time of the full extent oi the subserviency of President Lopez's administration to the policy of the Imperial Cabinet. We have now in our possession incontestible proof that < Dr. Pfmenta Hue no, the Brazilian Charge d' Affaires in , Assumption, is not only the political adviser, but also 1 the actual Foreign Secretary of the Paraguayan ruler. The Parafuayo I>uitptnditnl*?with a flie et which to the 34th of October, we have been favored?contains the whole seties of documents relative to the mediation of the U 8., and the mission of Meetrs. Graham and G. L Brent. Now, all the documents which have emanated from the government Of Paraguay clearly bear the itn- I preas of foreign origin. In fact, they aiford the etrougeat internal evidence of having issued from the pen of the Brazilian representative, as will be readily discovered bv tmy persou tolerably conversant with the Spanish r itd Portuguese languages, whenever they are re- i published In many instances the phraseology is Portu- ' gue.-e, and in others almost wholly untranslated sen- , I truces occur-, aa for example, the following in e note to i Mr. Harris, dated the 14th of October: " Par l? asanas i es *n cie intuifa," Vc. Will eay competent judge say 1 that an Hispano-American aver wrote srUuita in the i sense here given to it? Murder will out. But enough : of this for the present. We omitted to mention In our lest that President Lopez | had abated considerably hi* pretensions with respect to { the navigation of the Parana, having mada aa overture j i for e compromise, by issuing a decree to the following i i effect, under date of the 14th of October ! "Art. 1. On the assumption that a just reciprocity will be obtained, the navigation in Argentine veaseis with ( their flag from the line of the fluvial frontier of the Re. , public to the Villa del Pilar, continues henceforward free. | But the ascent of those vessels farther than the upper j anchorage of the Villa del Pilar is prohibited. Art. 3. Until the supreme national government shell | obtain the definitive stipulation of a ju9t and sure rec.ipro- < City, in order that the vessels and national flag of this re- j public may descend freely as raras tbe lowest anchorage , of tbe city of Coriieutes, and arrive with entire freedom, , they are prohibited to proceed further down than the j frontier line " Whatever President Lopez may call his flig, it is in the eyes ot tbe Argentine government, uotiing mora titan any ef the proviwiil Haas ol nanta Ke, Cntreiios or Corrieotes, used exclusively in the coasting trude. And we much mistalte if, notwithstanding his relractorinesa. provided be do not renew hie aggreisions, the Argentine fievernmont will not, upon the pacification of the Repub10, extend to hit Dig the same privileges aa those enjoyed by any other of the aialer provinces in the inland navigation; though at tha ume time we would very much question the propriety of continuing to favour Paraguay produce by diicriuunating duties. Aa the case stands between Paraguay and tha Confederation, the lit. tar, we think, would be carrying ita generosity to a too hazardous extant, ii besides allowing, ior the sake of the interests of general commerce, a iree intercourse between the former and the Argentine ports, it should fail to make the dissident province leel the ruinous consequenoes of the iosane policy it pursues. [From the British Packet, Dec ] Messrs. Graham and G L. Brent arrived in town on I Monday ivst from Paraguay, with despatches ior tha U. 8. legation. It is nudarstood that Signior Lopez had not only issued a decree, as was befors stated, suspending hostilities against tha confederation, hut actually disbanded hi* uimy- For tbe rest, the Paraguayan ruler appears to be as infatuated as ever with the idea of dissevering that province irom the national union ; and there is but toi much reason to i-pprehend that his eyas will not bo opened to the folly of such a pretention until he shall have shaken off the ominous influence of Brazilian diplomacy. That 8ignior Lopez should remain lor any great leugth of time under Ins Iiresent delusion we deem quite improbable ; and we ook forward with confidence to the period ot pacification and renewal of commercial intercourse as tha commencemant of an era fruitful of results demoustrative of the immense benefits to be deiived irom preserving the nat'onal union unimpaired, and equally conclusive as to the aeifbh motives by which the Imperial cabinat is acI tusteJ in encouraging a separation, by which Paraguay would be the only loser, and Brazil tbe sole gainer A1 though the mission of Messrs. Graham and Brent has failed to attain the main object for which it was undertaken, it will, nevertheless, be productive of one very useful tesult, in contributing to correct the erroneous impressions, so prevalent abroad with respect to every | IUIIIH twow i/WU mm * d< n|| uaj , auu mua t'^u<u?w ? i j:i?t appreciation of the nature of the question at Ueue. i oaiaitTai. state.

From Fray Cristobil, our detachment marched with Col. Doniphan louth, when, at'he Lacuna of the Jornada del Muette. newa reached ui through an express sent by Major Gilpin, that the Mexicans had determined to resist at ?1 Paso, and had collected a considerable number of troops, intending to citre us battle An express had been sent to Santa Fe for part of the artillery under Major Clark, but no news bad bs yet reached us from there, so that the detachment of thirty men from the three companies of our corps are all that are here from the batallion. At the southern end of the Jornada, ten miles north of Don Ana, the traders had en eamped. Contradictory rumors of the enemy's approach reached us dally. Yesterday, (Christmas day.) when we had just arrived in camp here, with about 600 men, had unsaddled our animals and most of the men were engaged in carrying wood and water, the news was brought into camp or tho enemy's being in sight and advancing It waa about two o'clock., P. M , and the day was very pleasant Onr horses grazing some dietanre from camp, at the time we formed a single line and deter mined to meet the enemy as infantry Their attacking being evidently designed on the 1. ft flank, near which waa eur wagon troin, our detachment was ordered from the extremo right to the left, where we soon took up our position. One piece of artillery. 4*0 regular lancers and cavalry, and 100 regular infantry, beside* sons 600 militia troops from ?1 Peso, composed the enemy's force, according to the best information I can obtain from report! of prisoners and from papers found amongst tho baggage on the field of battle. The onemy ranged themselvo* on the east within half a mile of our line, the mountains in their rear. Iu our rear waa the rivar, with a little brush-wood on its banks. Prsviona to the eaceunter a lieutenant from their ranks came forward waving a black flag in bis hand, but halted when within ono hundred steps of eur liue. Thomas < alJwi-11, our interpreter. rode out to meet him. The messenger with the black flag of defltncs demanded that tho commander should come into their camp and speak to their general. The reply was, "If your geueral wants to see our commander, let him oome here." "We shall break your ranks thou and take kim there," was the retort ol the Mexican. ''Come and take him," said our Interprater, unwittingly uaing the phrase ot the Spartan at Tharmopylss. "A curse on you, prepare for a charge," cried the Mexican, "Wo give no quarters nnd nek none," * ' ? * * ' 1 ? awjw lila Via is/I era I. hoi waving nis hick uir ?. ??- loped back towarila the enemy's line Their charge waa made by the dragoon* from their right, directed upon our loft flunk, bringing oar detachment into the clogeet Are.

Here they >aet a very warm reception and were soon compelled to fly in all directions and in the utmost confusion. Their infantry having been put to flight, the Howard company, under the command of Lieutenant N Wright, taking advantage of the panic, charged upon them and took tbrir cannon from them?thia was soon manned by the artillery detachment, under Lieutenant Kribhen, in Colonel Michel'* escort. The eDemy had by this time fled, leaving their arms, baggage, previsions and other stores on the field of battle. A small body oi mounted men under the command ol Captain Heid. had by this time gathered together in a line and charged upon the enemy, pursuing them into the mountain!, where they sought refuge. The number of their Jeua is said to be at loast thirty that of their wounded waa alight as far ai ascertained Had we a single piece of cunnon with us they would h-tv< last more a( their men, but having no artillery on oui side, we had te act as infantry until we got possession ol the howitzer so gallantly captured by tno Howard com pany.

Thus ended the battle oi Brscito, the fitsi buttle of the Army of tins West, and as bravely fought by oar mm at ever men fought at any engagement.
