m-????? NEW YORK HERALD. New York, Wednesday, March 14, 1*4T. Random Motes by Xn. J. U. Bennett. Paris, February 20, 1847. 1 am now, my dear Madam, preparing to leave Pant for a second tour in Italy. 1 want to be in Rormforthe Hoiv Week, to witness the nrinu. niflcent ceremonies on that great occasion. The spring in I'aly is delightful. Only imagine me, my dear friend, going alone?but then I cannot say alone, for I shall have my two servants, cou. sin, and also my little boy?but 1 mean withou t Mr. B ; for he dislikes travelling so much."I intend posting from here to Marseilles, and then coast it along the Mediterranean. 1 don't know how it is,but I always like travelling in the spring of the year. The wea her is so inviting and the air so delicious; and then you meet so many new faces, and see so many queer things, and learn so much of human nature. 1 cannot see how it is that the Americans tind so much pleasure in coining here, and, instead of ( travelling all the time, setting themselves down in little clvpitt, and vieing with each other who ( will throw away the most money. They know about as little of French society when they return? as if they had never been here ; for the greater number of them go into no society but that of Americans, or a few English, and that a verv tow. There is nothing more difficult than for Americans to get into good French society?and | tolerable society is so very intolerable. There are a great many mothers who imagine their sons and daughters' education not completed till they visit Europe, and, indeed, their own also?the education of the mothers themselves. That is a very erroneous idea, like t>. great many more that the would-be fashionables have; for I assure you, I have met ladies, married and single, who have been living in Europe four or five years, and in my mind not 1 hall so accomplished or elegant in their manners as some who have never left their native land, in 1 the United States. For my part, 1 think it is the 1 destruction of a young man or girl to come to Europe. It spoil* them tor any sort of domestic 1 life, they become disgusted with every thing 1 American, and all their future happiness is de- ' stroyed. I heard a very pretty American girl say 1 the other day, " Ah, what shall I do! Pa, 1 intends to take me home next spring, I can 1 never live there. It is impossible ! I shall surely 1 leturn whenever I can get a chance." "Why," 1 ?aid she, " they have not even handsome shops 4 there?no places ot amusement?not even any 1 handsome promenades?nothing but Broadway, Broadway." By the by,that is very true; for c Now York is the only city in the world. I believe, where there are no handsome promenades. 1 recollect, also, having met some American 8 young ladies, who had been away for a short 1 time; they had actually forgotten their own Ian- 8 guage; and even tiaed to ask me what part of the 8 city of New York Broadway was in. How perfectly absurd. Americans ought to be proud of their country?proud of its institutions, and ol their superior intellect and natural talent, superior to any ' nation on the earth ; the only country in the 1 world, almost, where money is so equally divided, ' and where one third of the population is not in a starving condition. Every one there has plenty 1 to eat and drink, and plenty to cover them. There you do not see one-half in splendor, and the other half of the population in misery. Every body can be comfortable if they wish, and if they ^ work for it. It is really melancholy to read the papers here, and to hear of the distress all over Europe Even all the exertions to help the ' starving seem to have no effect, the wants are so great. J But I must turn from this subject, for it is dis- ^ treusing to think of the poor creatures and their sufferings. I start to-inorrow for Rome, Florence, ^ and Naples, and leave all the gaities and chaims of this seductive city behind me, and its hand- ' some men, for 1 believe all the handsome men in the world congregate in Paris. H. A. B. i i The KxclUng News from the Rio Grande? Ths Reported Battles. The intelligence by telegraph, published in our yesterday's paper, and given more in detail, in this day's Htrald, confirmatory ol a battle between the Mexicans, under Santa Anna, and the Americans under General Taylor, will be perused with the greatest interest. It is now probably certain that there has been a tremendous and severe conflict near Sa!tillo; for where there is so much smoke, there must be some fire. These reports, coming lorward at a time when we knew by accounts from Mexico, by the way of Vera Cruz and Tampico, that Santa Anna had , left San Luis for Saltillo, prove the probability , of the collision between the forces. We have little j doubt but that an action has taken place. , t If General Taylor has been induced to leave g his position at Agua Nueva, it must have hap- a pened in order to concentrate his defences. His ? forces being not tnore than one-fourth of those of \ Santa Anna, the withdrawal of them to a position j where they could resist rep ated assaults, would ^ have been positively necessary. The necessity for ' it accounts then for the movement. The necessity | for the movement is to be easily seen ; to have un- ( dertaken a pitched battle against a force so much ( stronger numerically than his own, would have ( caused great losses, even if victorious in the end ( The whole of the force of the enemy would not ; strike at him at one time, but repeatedly. Repeat- ( ed attacks would lessen his vigor of defence ; be- t cause, if the Mexicans advance against him . in the first instance with 6000, and these were routed; another 6000, fresh from the Mexican ( ranks, could continue the attack ; then 0000 more, t t and so on, General Taylor's whole force being all , the time occupied. We have a great opinion of 1 r the coolness, courage and intrepidity of Generai r Taylor. His danger with so small a force con- , sists not in the supposed impossibility of his j ; beating the enemy, but in the impossibility of re- t silting the weakening assaults of successive at- ( tacks of the enemy, and to cover liimself unti' emforcemenu reach him. [, General Taylor will have been sensible of his ? danger on that account on discovering the enemy so superior in numerical strength ; and if ho has fallen back from Agua Nueva at all, it is lor the g purpose il concentrating the two commands o' y Haltillo and Monterey. He may have evacuated i ii SuiUllo without encountering the enemy; and the h latter may have been repulsed only at the Kin- d conada l*ass. The enemy was not repulsed at ti S.iltillo, or he would not be heard of beyond it, on ihi road to Monterey. Wa do not think it possible that General Tuylar, after a loss of 2000 men, ' could retreat, after enough ot hard fighting, to 1 kill and wound, four of twenty thousand. His J Strength would be insutficient tv retreat successfully, pursued by an army which would be stil1 ) 1 sixteen thousand strong Tho battle reported as having taken place in ! the streets of Saltillo, may turn out to have been revolt of the Citizens against the garrison, on bearing of ihe approach of Santa Anna. Such a movement was announced as likely to take place by the Governor in the locality of that post; and> ! ' If we remember rightly, he was threatened by General Worth. If General Taylor thought it prudent to move j toAgna Nueva, he must have done it because he ! I 1 bought Saltillo untenable. If, therefore, he shall 1 have believed Agua Nueva untenable, abo, I against so superior a force, the movements to , Monterey, o.i the approach of the Mexicans, is i accounted lor; end the conflict will, as already ! jtsted, have taken place only at the Kinconada pass. This General Taylor will no doubt be able to bold until ike junction at Monterey is effected Hi* danger there will be in his isolation lrom all communication with Camargo and Matamoras. He will be placed in a very critical position, unless the place is well furnished with provisions ; he, indeed, is besieged. But the troops now ess route for the Bmzos, and the ten regiments which he is said to have called for, may reach him in time to save his aTmy from serious injuiy We think, wo now discover a clue ol the future intended movements of the Mexicans. After recovering the posts on the Rio Grande, they will vaticeunon Tamnico. Vera Cruz taken, thev ma v not, possibly, attack Tampico, but pass on to Vera Cruz, and by that means get into the rear or General Scott, when he shall leave that place for the mountains. We expect, however, ah this speculation may yet be succeeded by intelligence of the total discomfiture and route of the forces of Santa Anna, notwithstanding their great numerical strength. If, on the other hand, the latter re-establish ascendancy on the Rie Grande, the interest of the war will be increased in the ratio of the possibility of his the national feeling to add to the facilities of continuing the war. The movement of Santa Anna against Taylor is a desperate one. If he should succeed in it, it will give him immense sway over the destinies ot Mexico. Vkoktablb Chkmjstry.?We made a lew remarks last week on the rapid advances ot the science of chemistry in the world ot organised matter, and ot the service that these investigations are rendering in the cause of medical science more particularly. At the same time we remarked that the diseases and derangements of the nervous system were still sealed books to the physician. This is undoubtedly the case as far as regards any knowledge of the nature ol the morbid changes in the system giving rise to these complaints; complaints the most formidable and appalling that befall the human system ; such as lock-jaw, epilepsy, amaurosis, inducing total blindness without any appreciable change in the struoture of the aye?neuralgia or tic doloreux, giving rise to the most excruciating and unremitting pain that the mind can conceive, and many other disorders, all lending to curtail human life, and.absolutely wearngjout the system with the pain accompanyng them. All these disorders arc wrapped in mystery as regards their cause, for, in the great iiiijuriiy ui cases uie examination 01 me uouies 01 he poor patients after death lails to disclose any ippreciaUle deviation or alteration from the natual structure or appearance. Vegetable chemistry, however, has been suclessful in some measure in wresting, as it were, a emedy for these complaints, from the inmost releases of certain plants; we allude to that class of ubstances known as the vegetable alkaloids? imong these we may instance morphine, quinine, itrychnine, laconitine, veratrine, fee. Morphine ind quinine are well known, and the efficacy of he latter in the cure of fever and ague, is one of he greatest blessings to the human family that souU have been granted. It is the active principle of the Peruvian bark, and a few grains of this oeautiful white crystalline substance is as efficaiious as a pound of the nauseous woody powder, which was the form in which it had to be administered, until within, comparatively speaking, a very few years past. But the vegeto-alkalies which have been more recently isolated from their parent plants, have been all of a much greater power than quinine and morphine. They occur here and there in a few plants, and always in very small quantities, but their extraordinary powers over the animal system, claim for them with justice a prominent place. They are fearful soisons or valuable medicaments according to the landl thf?V fall into fliAv at art iKa mnaf nntviir. ul influence over nervous diseases; and lockjaw ind amaurosis, two of that class which have ong been considered as impiegnable to meliciue have yielded beneath their use. From their extraordinary power, (the 40th or even 60th part of a grain of strychnine being a tolerably large dose) there is reason to hope that when the whole series of them, whioh undoubtedly exist in nature, shall have been thoroughly explored, many of them will be lound complete specifics lor diseases at present considered incurable. The great expense attendant on their preparation is one great drawback at present, for many of them cannot be sold for less than $60 to #70 per ounoe?but this will doubtless be obviated hereafter. Meantime, let us hope that the more universal attention which is now being given to the various branches of chemistry, will be the means of bringing to light many more of these hidden treasures of nature. Thk Govkenmxnt Steamer Scorpion.?We understand that the difficulty attending the sailing jf this vessel, lately the Aurora, arid the alleged mperlections of her machinery, which would end, if true, to injure the reputation of the conductors, is attributed to other causes than those issigned, and that the reasons why she does not ret fulfil the anticipations of those who, from obervation and critical inspection, considered her lerfoct in model and construction, will, in time, le satisfactorily given. She was constructed, we understand, by a shipping house in this city of the highest respectabiliy, for their own use, without any idea of a lale; and all the work performed by the best me. ihanics, under the most careful supervision. A iteam vessel, however perfect, may be greatly in ured by alteratijns in adapting her to new duty, >r by over lading; and, above all things, required o be well engineered to carry out the views of her >rojectors. The introduction of steam into our navy creates, >f course, a new grade of officers, whose duties ire, in the highest degree, important, and in vhom any want of skill or mechanics wonld lead it once to the most fatal consequences. We are lot aware how engineers in the navy, are at prelent selected, but it is certainly very essential that t should he after searching examination as to heir abilities and knowledge ot the monster pow r they attempt to oontrol. We say this much without reference to particuar cases, but with general reterence to the mangemerit of steam vessels of war. The Launch op the N?w York.?The notice ;iven that this vessel was to have been launched es erday was rather premature It was not the mention of Mr. Webb to let her off until to-day at lalf-past 3 o'clock, at which time those who were isappointed yesterday, will have an opportunity o gratify their curiosity. Steamship Southerner.?Through the thick og and heavy rains, this little steamer came iloughing up the hay yesterday; bringing accounts 'rom Charleston some hours later than the mail. We are under obligations to Captain Berry, and to he Charleston editors for a good supply of papers. No news. Board of Supervisors. Alderman Hart In the Chsir.

On that evening Brother John N Mafflt led R | to the altar of Hymen the beautiful Miss Frances Smith, I stsp daughter of Judge Pierce of Brooklvu, aged about sixteen years. Tho ceremony was performed by Bro- Ic ; ther Oreen at the house of the bride's stepfather, and Pi ! was the subject of much merriment and tun to a large N | attendance of the Calnthumpian buid, who assembled Pi . outside the house. The moment after the ceremony pi I was concluded, these worthy gentlemen, some of whom, ! tiy the way, were under the lataMM of the jolly god, j Bacchus, commenced blowing cows' horns, rattling |E j tin kettlas and pans, singing hymns and songs, and | frequently ringing at tho door, and en it* being opened p( ! saluting the ebony countenance of tho colored offl | t I cisl who woe deputed to attend on the invited guests, p, I with flour snd o her whita substances, 'till the poor p| I blacky was so metamorphoiod, that his aged and respectable parent would not be able to discover his polished I features.

Ample justice having bee ne to the viands, the cloth was removed, and the Cha in arose, and in a low pertinent remarks, thanked tl ntlemea who had conferred upon him the honor eliding on the pi eaent occasion. He referred happi the improvement! of the age, and to tha part whii anklin, Fulton and Morae bad taken in advancing tl eat projaote with which their name* are so lneeparab mooted. He proposed the first regular toast. ' Tho Constitution of the United States."?This tor is received with cheers, and the band struck up Ys e Doodle.

The Hon. T. Butlkb Kinn roee end responded to tl ut in <he following words: ? Mr. President and Ge men?You will believe me, I em sure, when I say th is with no little feeling that I express the emotio lich your kindness has awakened in my bosoi mewhat accustomed to excitement and the scenes blic life, it has net been my fortune hitherto let an assemblage like that I now see before me. Stt unded, as lam, ty the merchants of this treat cit lose experien ce and knowledge detect the (lights idency of measures that affect the public prosperit m admonished that I am in no common presence; but i persuaded, gentlemen, that in your reception < tat i am about to say, you will extend the indulgent lich is oharacteriatio of liberal and enlightened mind has so happened, it seems to me, that the legislate oai government has very much, in many instance credited the great commercial interests of our cou r; and it is, perhaps, not surprising, that when at issure is debated, the tendency of which is the tuition ef those interests, it should exert some little fe< ( on the part of a community like this. Soon after the first passages of the steamships Siri d Great Western, in the year 16>8, the British gover int, with that far-sightedness, that quickness of sag T which characterises all its acts for the protectn promotion of its commercial interests, availed it?< the great principle developed that ocean steam navig in must be so arranged as to answer all the purpose* itional defence in time of war, as well as the promoti* commercial interests in time of peace. The discov was acted upon immediately; and in the years lb id '40, contracts were entered into for steamship lin. [tending to Boston, in our own country, and to tl 'est Indies, consisting of fouiteen steamships.

Thia aho?a that the Britiab iy Government ia not only amply repaiJ the amount dieburaad, but that it receivaa a large amount from the CuP nard line. y Thia ia evident from the policy they are adopting of ' increaaing thair linea to all parta of the world. Tliay It- eatabliahed a line of ateamera to Maoao immediately after ;r the war with China. They have eatabliahed a line on is the Pacific, from Valparaiao to Caliao and Panama, giv)K ing their merchant! great facilities for transmitting intelliganca to all parts of the commercial woild ; and now . thay propose to extend their Weat India line* to New c Orleans and other ports on tha Atlantio coaat. But 1 48 think that tha law reoently passed in Congress, and 'It which wa are now assembled hero to advocate, will, 'r- as Mr. Botts said of John Ty'er, " heal them otf" no ?(Cheering) My friend aaya, that he ho|?a it will of do it more etfectuailly.

But as I said *' : before, this new law will " head them off", if *' ; the expectations of those engaged in this buainesi will *n ! be realised, you will be enabled to go to New Oi|U leans in eight days, nod to Liverpool in twelve, so that you will have the advantage of John Bull of eight days. 18 (Applause.) I applaud his vigilance, and edmiie the n" , manner in which ne helps his merchants, wherever they 1 Bt are. It was a maxim of old, or at all events, it was a t?- ' M lismao to say, " I am a Roman citizen " 1 ain a British nl , subject, and that is enough to call down the whole pow, , er of Great Britain on every man who demands it. Let t0 not jCtaierica be reoieaut to her citizens, who carry her ' lr" flag to the remotest regions of the earth. But while T> I iirout Rritain la not only extending and protecting by her vigilance, shall we be recreant to our destiny, y: shall we fail to prove that we are not? Why should we 'i not promote and protect our commerce and protect our: selves incaaeaot difficulty! The law juit pasiud pro' vide* for the cenatruction of steamers of not less tnau " two thouaond tona burthen, which ahall make two tripe a ' month. I have confluence to believe that five yeara ahall not elapae before three ateamera ahull eo far excel the , * Cunard ateamera aa our packet ehipe now excel aailiug * veaaela of the whole world Gentlemen, we are literal, 1) engaged in a race. I will not quote the old adage? "Devil take the hindmoat"?but it will be ruin to the hindmoat in.this race'whoever he will be. You will ' have to contend against severe competition?! hope the law will meet all exigenciea, but whoever does | .' excel will surely ruin the other, because celerity ; of movementa will command the patronage of even " the British themselves; so that if you exert ail your enterprise, you will undoubtedly succeed in putting down all competition. Another section of the law pro? 1 videa for the eatahlishment of a line of ateamera to New 1 1'. Orleans, stopping at savannah and Havana, with branches to Chagrea, and authorises the Poatofiice to forwaid ' ' the mails across the Isthmus of Panama to the Pacific.? When all, therefore, are in operation, yeu will be within nioe days of Panama, and your intelligence may be ie* ceived from Liveipnol end sent to the Pacific in dl ' I | days, a shorter period than many of you have thought of But what is said vl our :M-rcourse now with ? the Pacific ? It is stited by Atbart Gallatin, that : month* elapae before private letter* can be aeut to i thi Pacific, and that latter* frequantly remain at ?" Panama a long time; and in one case he atates the gov ernment despatches remained at Baltimore three months ' *: before they were sent out to him. This is indeed news ! nf around " Robin Hood's Barn.'' What a change will take . place when we can have news in one month from Ore "* tron to Valparaiso. This will be done if the law passed B* be carried into effect- The law passed the session bes" fore the lMt authorizing the warehousing of good*, auJ 1 Ju the transmission of packagea before the payment of duty er will give all the advantage you deaire over the ar British ateamera. They must run in tho same space P* of time, and land at any port south of you ** without paving any additional duties or charges ?r When we look acroia the Pacific and regard our to trade with China, and reflect that we have a squadron In' the Chinese Seas and a large sharge of Callfomia and Oregon, and that it coats more to pay the ex'* penaea of two frigates than to pay for a line of steam"J. boats, When we recollect that these steamers must atop ?* at Cantou, and that H le by no means improbable that BU we shall have a line of telegraah to the Pacific, there seems to be no limit to what these steamships may not "e be extended. The distance from San Francisco to Cant0 j ton is 7,000 mdes. If steamers can go to Boston from Liverpool in nine days, we can go to C snton in 23 days- i [We are obliged to condense his remarks 1 The speaker , ?' continued, and said?In case of a war with Oreat Bri- ' ' tain, and in case we had no steamships there, she would control that line of communication, our squadron and ,0 our whaling vessels would be in her power. The com1(1 merce on tna Pacific is worth $20,000,000, and employing 12 000 men, the whole of which could be captured 'n six months before the news ot a war breaking out. I w hold a Kutopiau idea that within the lapse oi a few years ?J we shall see a line of telegraph from St. Louis to Moc11 terey, as well as ac ocean railroad leading to the utmost ,n ; bounds of the earth; we shall probably too, have a line 1 to Brazil as well as to other rl*oes, which shall protect D> otir own commerce alljover the earth, and give our marchants the same security the British merchants have l* enioved. I have alluded to the circumstance that u" speed i? a great element or power. To obtain 1 1,8 thii power 011 the ocean we muat have expeditious ar ocean steam navigation. Thia will be illustrated when '1' we ahall be in a war with any great maritime power ? ly We all know how successful the Parthian mode of war111" fare wai; they cocq'iered the Romani by the celerity of ?n their movements. bo it will ba with our ateamera, that "? can pounce upon the enemy on every ahore, and deatroy ',I* it with ita liou'a graap. The apeaker then alluded to the lte iccreaiiog amount of our agticultural produotiona ; to the importance of ourrailioada and that of our inland 1,6 navigation, and aaid that the tendency of thinga waa to concentrate the trade of the nation in thia great metropo- j lia He coooluded by returning thanka for the attention with whieh he waa listened to, and aat down amid nine 03 dea'cning and enthusiastic cheers. The filth regular toaat waa?" The Judiciary ol the State oi New York," which the Chairman characterised aa the aheet anchor of our civil inatitutiona. Thia sentiment brought out Judge Oakley, who, in ! hia remarks, referred te tue new judiciary system oi our | State, which he looked upon in no favorable light, but I advised a thorough trial of the system, avoiding all party *04 considerations in the choice of judgea, and thus avoiding the evils otherwise likely to arise out of the arrange*04 i ment. The aixth toaat was?" The army of the United Statee," in giving which the Chairman prefaced it by some feeling remarks in allusion to thoso brave hearts who are bearing our flrg abroad, and detending, wherever they | bear it. The baud here played " Hail Columbia." 40 When the music ceased, General Gaines arose, and ! responded to the last toast. He expressed hia feel*32 ings of regret that he was hero, and not in Mexico with the army Yet he was congratulating himself on being present with the citixena of New York. He referred to the circumstances of having received his first mark of honorable regard from the inhabitants of this city, who during the last war voted to >00 him a beautiful sword, as the mark of the estimation in which they held his services, in the accomplishment of certain victories obtained over the British forces in Ca1 nada. In speaking of Gen. Taylor, he said he knew the man, and hesitated not to say that he and his men were : safe, and that they would maintain their stand against | any force that could be brought against him.
