? > : ? < NEW YORK HERALD. 3cnz---~''ran rr r ? ?' . ,? , New York, Wednesday, September 9, 1S4T. Meeting of the Legislature. The Legislature of this State will begin its special session at twelve o'clock to-day. We shall receive daily telegraphic reports of its pro ceedings. _ The Corn Trade. We call the attention of our readers generally, and of those engaged in the corn trade particularly, to the money article in this day's paper. It contains an exposition of the ways and means used to inflate prices for breadstufl's in Europe, and a statement of the exportation of Hour and grain to Great Britain from this country during the past three ye irs. Affairs of La Plata. We have received another letter from our special correspondent in Buenos Ayres, from which uui icauna win icaru iu an quiuvhuu "?"rv? that the negotiations for the withdrawal of the French and English from the quarrel between the Buenos Ayrean and Montevidean governments have ended in nothing, and that RosaB is determined not to be forced into doing any thing that he consider not right or proper. Thus has ended, as our correspondent says, another chapter in the farce of the peacemaking mediations. We insert immediately after our correspondent's letter, a review of this troublesome aifair, which is copied into the Britith Packet, of the 26th of June, from the Gaceta. We have taken paina from time to time to keep our readers informed of the progress of this armed intervention by France and England, in the affairs of La Plata, and we are sure that our readers will agree with us, that a more ridiculous proceeding by strong powers towards weak ones was never perpetrated. For the indomitable energy which RoBas has displayed, and the unintimidated front which he has so unremittingly presented to those insolent interlopers, he is deserving of all praise. lie has shown himself to be possessed of the spirit requisite to success on such an occasion, and will yet weary out both the French and the English. There is every reason to believe that these governments are aware of the false step they committed, j when they first undertook to interfere, and when they found that there waB no probability of their being successful in accomplishing what they expected, they have been awaiting an opportunity to withdraw themselves from it with as little disgrace as possible. They wanted some concession which smacked of reality, but Rosas would not grant it. They now find themselveB exactly where they were when they commenced, and we doubt not, have received a lesson which will prevent them from interfering with business that does not concern them hereafter, in that quarter, at all events. If it were necessary to adduce any grounds to prove that these two governments acted from the beginning in bad faith, the proffered friendly mediation of the United States, which they rejected on the silliest ground, is sufficient. When our chargi, on the part of his government, offered his good services, the agents of those governments refused to confer with him, on the ridiculous ground that as he was only a chargi, and they fully accredited ministers, it would be derogatory to their dignity to confer with him; as if, indeed, a chargi could not have as much brains as a minister. They have had reason since, however, t* do so, and do now, no doubt, repent their refusal, for there is no question that they wish to back out of the intervention as speedily as tk'.-y possi- ' bly can, but with as little disgrace as possible attaching to them. ( Stkamboat and Railroad Routes.?We sug- 1 gested to the owners of railroads and steamboats ' a few oays Bince, the difficulty which strangers and travellers experience in procuring accurate j and reliable information as to the routes they wish to travel, and the propriety of their advertising their respective routes in some one paper, no matter which. Since we made that suggestion, we have been informed by Mr. John Doggett, jr., the publisher of the Directory, that he is collecting information, and making other preparations, to publish a work which will embrace all necessary information for the travelling public, on the plan of Bradihaw's Railway Guide, a work published in England, and of great value. This work we are assured, will contain the hours of departure, routes, fares, distances, freight rates, &c-, on every railroad in the United States, which he is now collecting, through agents employed for the purpose. We are much in want of such a work in the it?;??.i ev... been increasing, and the only means of obtaining information has been from agents and runners, whose business and interest are to misdirect and puzzle the traveller for the purpose of shaving Bhim of his money. The depredations which this class of people commit on the travelling public cannot be overrated. The unfortunate emigrant, with money enough to take him to the West, where his friends and relatives have settled before him, has been robbed of his laat dollar, and left penny less in a strange city. Our own citizens, too, have been victimised by these men, and it is because we are sure the work in question will obviate these rascalities, that we are happy in announcing the forthcoming publication. Movkmknts of Gknkrai. Taylor.?We have on many occasions informed the public that it was not contemplated by General Taylor to move from his present quarters for some time to come at least not until after the results of Generul Scott's movements in another quarter were ascertained. The Southtftn journals, especially such of them as are Whig, cannot, or will not understand it, for we perceive they are from time to time announcing the intention of the old General to move to dan Luis Potoai and other places, and finding fault with the administration for taking from him some of his troops. Such a com. plaint has recently been made because two regi menis, 10 dp aaaca 10 ine lorce uoacr trenenii 8cott, have been taken from him, making eleven regiments in all ?ince Scott wan directed to Vera Cruz and thence to the capital. i For the information of those journals we can tell them that no blame can be attached to the ad- | ruin miration in the premises. It was at General Taylor's own suggestions to the war department that he has remained so long on the defensive ; and when making it he informed the war department that in addition to the troops previously i taken from him, he could spare two regiments, and have force sufficient left to enable liini to act on the defensive with security. We would further remark that a pcrfect understanding exists between the old hero and the government at Washington, and that no movement of the latter, as far as he is concerned, is made without his consent being given, or indeed without his opinion being first obtained. Arrival, ok the Soi-thkkner.?This line coast steamer, under the command of Capt. Berry, arrived yesterday morning at her usual tinv- from Charleston. She move* with the regularity of clock-work. She has brought intelligence trom New Orleans twenty-four hours in advance of the mail. It Is said that the remain* of Mr. fox, lat? British Mi nlater at Washington.will not besrnt to Knglaod, an originally contemplated, but will b? Interred Id the Con- ! jrewit iial buryiug ground A g.'i)tl<un?n ha* Wn on leotsd, who. Mr ) rawntou, < harjte de Affairs*, will elect ? proper trestle* f?>r tB? ((?>* , Antral of a SwUnlui Corv?tte_Ttu> OJect of tier visit to America. The Sardinian corvette Aurora, arrived at thi? port early yesterday morning. She caine up in the forenoon, fired a salute and nchored off the Battery. The following interesting account of her, we received from C. Edwards Lester, Ksq., the American Consul at Genoa. The Aurora came from Genoa. Ui.toi, 10th July, 1847. L'Aurora, now lying in the beautiful bay of Uenoa, will lift tier anchor thin evening for the New World? the llri>t Sardinian man-of-war we believe, that ever visited New York 1 give you a list of her officers, and a short account of the object of lier voyage. The Aurora corvette is a naval school ship, of 600 tons, carrying b guns, 118 naval scholars who rank as midshipmen, and 7 officers, vis.: The Marquiss ilipolito Spinola, Captain; Big. Cavaliere Mantica, 1st Lieutenant; (sola, Jd Lieutenant; Marquis Delia Chiesa 3d Lieutenant; Du Nau, Master; Sertorio, Chaplain; Psgano, Commissarlo; l'iconi, Professor of Mathematlos; Oaffodlo, Surgeon; and Sig. Ponglgllone,who has oharge of the school. The object of the voyage is exceedingly interesting.? The naval school at Genoa U probably the best regulated In the world. There are twenty-five young men in it who are distinguished either for the nobility of their family, the military service their fathers have rendered the State, or for their own talents. The Marine College standi on a commanding position in the city of Genoa, overlooking the town and the enchanting bay, and every facility is provided by the government for the eduoation of the scholars. They are eduoated for the sea,and for the world. A full-rigged man-of-war stands in the oourt yard the oollego, where the young tignorini can make their first essays in seamanship, without being subjeotad to the lnconvenienoe of salt water, for the ship stands some 300 feet above the sea. The most accomplished professors are engaged, and the scholars are most thoroughly trained in mathematics,navigation, and foreign languages the latter being a branch of eduoation which is culpably neglected by our Government. 1 have seen in Genoa an Amerioan fleet of '2000 men, and among all the offloers, there were hardly enough who understood either Freuoh or 1 talian to act as interpreters. After the annual examination, each year, the scholars are sent to sea five months, for the double purpose of learning practical seamanship and navigation, and to visit foreign countries. While at sea tneir duties are very severe. Without distinction they are obliged to do the work of oommon sailors In every part of the ship, to eontinue their regular studies, to keep their reckoning, to make their calculations, and to keep complete charts of the voy (hip. It la impossible that such a system vhould not give the Sardinian marine a most accomplished corps of naval officers?men who are fully oapable at a very early age, of commanding the largest vessels in any sea, and of representing their sovereign with honor In every foreign codbtry. And yet, as desirable as this system of naval education may be, we much doubt if it could be easily introduced among us. We are afraid our young republicans would revolt against so severe a discipline. This system of the King of Sardinia has been admired throughout Europe and won for his Majesty the praise of being a wise and provident Prince. The course of studies lasts Ave yearp, when the young graduates are raised to the rank of passed midshipmen, and Immediately transferred to active and uninterrupted service at sea for two or three years. When this term expires they are subjected to another searching examination, and if they come off with honor, they are promoted to lieutenants in the royal marine. Every year the Marine College is transferred to the sea for a cruise oftflve months, in whioh there are Immense advantages. These young men in shert jackets are already accomplished gentlemen and sailors. They have seen many countries, and they speak several lan. guages. Last year, under the same able commander, the Marquis Hpinola, they made a voyage to England and sailed around the British ialandg.vlaitlnff all the naval ports, arsenals and magasines of that great naval power. The previous year they visited Greece, Turkey, the Black Sea, and the shores and oities of the Mediterranean. These voyages are made, too, in the most beautiful season of the year, and in the spring time of life, when the most permanent and the most powerful Impressions we ever receive are exoited, and when the iiind and the character yield with grace and flexibility ;o every new passing objeot. There is something peculiarly interesting in the departure of these twenty-five young Italians from the birth place of Columbus, for the distant land that great navigator discovered. In their veins flows the same wivrm blood that coursed through the heart of that immortal hero?they have been born under the shadows of the same bold mountains, and in youth looked off on the same blue sea, and each one has the last night dreamed of that far off land over the deep, with its warm hearts and bright eyes Thoy have a right' to expect a cheerful and fraternal welcome; nor can I doubt they will receive it. Their absence is limited to flvo months, and they will stay but a short time among our oitixens. Many of our officers, particularly of Commodores Morgan, Morris and Smith's fleets, will long remember the warm, hearty, and open, oheerful homes of Uenoa. The hospitable and prinoely entertainments of the Governor of Uenoa?the magnlticent wines of the casino of the eity?the elegant soirees of the Marquis de Negro?the enchanting strains of Carlo Felice?will always recal brignt days to the memories of our gallant officers who had the good fortune to sail under those well known commanders. A fact has come to my knowledge which does great credit to tbe government or bia Majesty the King of Sardinia, and that of the United States. Home nine yearn ago, when tbe King fitted out tbe Regina, for a scientific voyage around tbe world, an order waa issued from tbe American President, to all onr foreign naval stations, to eittnd to that expedition every possible courtesy, aid. and attention. And, in faot, this order waa literally and fully obeyed, for, on the return of the Regina, auoh a report wan made to his Majesty aa induoed him to isaue a reciprocal order to extend particular courtesy in every part of the world to American veaaels. Here, too, in tbeae waters, whioh are ao much frequented by our national vessels, we have had abundant reason to know that tbe moat hospitable and generoua reception haa keen extended to ua. , The Marquis Splnola, who oommanda the Aurora, had charge of a similar expedition to England laat year, and a better selection could hardly be made. He represent* one ot the most ancient and noble families of Genoa, which had distinguished Itaelf in tbe aervioe of the republlo, long before the timea of Columbua. He la a gentleman every way fitted to represent hla aovereign, and tbe beautiful land which gave him birth. You must not regard tbe Aurora aa a aample of the king's navy, exoept in her offloera, college crew and dlaolpline. She is only a school ship, and is sent beoause she is well adapted to the aervioe on whioh ahe goes. The San Miohele. one of tbe king's frigates, would have exjited a good >*eal of admiration?or any of the king's steamers?but I hope the Aurora may be, as its name importa, only the harbinger of a brighter day of commercial. naval, ana social relations between America and Uenoa. The kingdom of Sardinia la now la a career of rapid advancement ; and the completion of the railroad from Genoa to Lake Constance, which is tunneling the Appenines, will introduce a new era in its prosperity. Our relations with this state have always been of the most friendly kind, and as there is even no distant probability th it these harmonious relations will ever be disturbed, it become* every Sardinian and every American to do what he can towards the mutual interchange of the wants and the oourtesies of oivlliiatlon. Truly yours, C. EDWARDS LESTER. "A Little More Grai k, Captain Brack?."? This is one of the thousand and one sayings that have been attributed to General Taylor since the breaking out of the war with Mexico, some of which are very good in their way, and dome unworthy of him or any other high-minded man. We were informed a day or two since, by a gentleman, who knows,that the old General never made use of the expression at the head of this nrticle, nor of any of those which have been laid at his door. He is represented as remarkably plain and unassuming, and not in the slightest degree disposed to indulge in slang or vulgarity. The only slang that is told of him, which has a mixture of truth in it, is that related of him when he received Gen. Pcott'd letter taking from him his brave volunteers, who accomplish^ such wonderfully brilliant achievements under hi" direction. He really did act as is represented on that occasion. He did actually put mustard in his coffee and sugar on his meat, when he read it, and it was some minutes before he recovered iiis wonted composure, which, however, soon followed, and then his brow wa? as clear as ever. "A little more grape, Captain Hrsgg," is very good, but not very true. Stili. Another Anti-Rent Outraok ? On Wedn< nday ni^'bt Inst, fnme desperadoes went to the farm occupied by Mr James Weeks.

As a oaterer for tteir amusement, his reputation *is all that he could desire, and all that Is neoessary for him to do to receive a continuance of the extensive patronage he is reoeiving, is to continue in the course he has commenced, and on all occasions evince a determination to please. Those two muoh admired performers, Miss Clark and Mr Walcott. will appear this evening in the comedy of " Tbe Follies of a Night," and the drama of " Charles the Twelfth." After these pieces the laughable farce of " State Seorets" will wind up the evening s amusements. This is a bill that will certainly fill the house. Castle Garden.?The opera of "Romeo and Juliet," whloh was to be performed last evening by the HispanoItallan company, was not presented in oonsequence of Signorlna Tedesoo's sudd-n Illness. The opera of "Somnambula" was substituted, and although Signori Caranti was n?t in very good voioe, she sang with her wonted sweetness. I'erilli was suffering from hoarseness, and this is not to be wondered at, when it is taken into consideration that the strongest and most repeated parts are located upon the talent of this fine tenor. L. Vltl was perfeet in his style, and reoeived unbounded applause. We do not know what will be the bill lur this evening, perhaps "Romeo and Juliet." If so, there will be a crowded house. Virginia Skrenaders.?We must not omit to acquaint the publio, and particularly that portion who have been amused with the performances of the Virginia Serenaders, at the Minerva Rooms, that this evening is set apart for the benefit of Massa Myers, fiddler to th? coiupauy, and one of the beat, m he certainly in the funniest of its members. There is a glorious bill set apart for tne occasion, one that will ensure a full house, and good returns. vikuirtia Minsthkls.?Dumbledon's celebrated band of Ethiopian Beienaders, are performing in Boston nightly, to crowded houses.

Hcaz and Sitori.?These accomplished professors ol music, will give a grand conoert at the Atheowum, in evening- They have issued a programme containing a seleotion of the pieces, in performing which they are bo oelebrated. On the following evening they will give a similar ooncert In Bleeoker Hall, Albany. We have only to remind the citiiens ol these places that this will be the last opportunity they will over hare ol hearing tbese celebrated musicians. Grand Concert.?Mr. W. A. King,whose musical abilities as an organist and pianist of the most scientific character, gives a ooncert to-morrow evening at Patterson; he will be assisted by Miss Watson, a very excellent vooallst, Mrs. W. A. King, and Mr. Cooko, the violinist, whose professional character, while in the South, has been so favorably spoken of. Mr. Win. A.

Bukiali in the Citt.?We are glad to learn that the Common Council have at length taken this matter in hand. At their session, on Tuesday evening, Alderman Smith made a report upon the subject of the cominuni cation of the health physician. He stated that thi ground at the Wallabout, belonging to several relgioui denominations, (as well as Potters-field) wan so densely filled with bodies, as to become detrimental to the heal t? of those living in the neighborhood. The committei proposed to have an ordinanoe passed, to take efTeot on< ?rear from the present time, prohibiting Interments with n a distance of two miles from the city.

The Hon N. Burchard, to whom the indebted for the admirable and eloquent addre?s on the subject of Agriculture the previous even' lug, at the Mechanics' Hall. Broadway, was unanimuus1 ly voted to the chair, wnen the Secretary opened the de* ; sultory conversation by reading an extract on Botany, froui the annals of the Horticultural Review, of Paris I He also read the result of the proceedings of the com' mitteu appointod at a previous meeting, to further and more miuutely explore the qualities of the soil of certain parts of Long Island, and the highly gratifying results of their observations on the farm of 30 acres, purchaeed at $300 an acre, tilled, and profitably tilled, by two brothers of the name of Cooper, whose skill and practical knowledge have, in a very short spaoe of time, displayed a remuneration, almost Incredible. A treatise on thirtyseven different species of grasses, and the respective properties of each, was read ; each class of grass was specially enumerated?many foreign, others domestic. Mr. Loetlitnan read a long and interesting paper upon the ?rogress of Agricultural Schools in.Uermany, of which e had been a pupil, exhibiting* in glowing terms the moral, politloal, social, and civil advantage to be derived from similar institutions in this country, sustained by the government, and adopted for purposes that must render this country as Independent of politloal contingencies as the system had proved lt?elt to be when Germany was thrown upon her own internal resources, at tbe termination ot the last war, in the formation of schools, the practioal knowledge of agriculture, Its identity with scienoe and its general moral influence on the destinies of man The remarks of Mr. Leesbman were listened to with deep interest, and when generally diffused must show that as Jiings and emperors have bees the nursincr fathwrH of nffrinultnrA nhrnufl the stern recommendation of the name principles bj our not less honored but more noble presidents at home, Washington and Jefferson, may yet be regarded by the legislatures of the present day as indispensible to the prosperity of the Union as " wisdom and knowledge 1 shall be to the stability of the Constitution, in this instance Mr. Leeshinan has contributed his experience in the various ouuutries he has visited, and neglect lor a moment upon this important measure, or ooidness, or political bias, is a responsibility of serious magnitude. A method adopted by Mr. Williamson of raising melons was read, by which melons cannot only be raised three weeks earlier, but will produce the amount of $40 a hundred, while the old plan will only reach from $10 to $16. Our limits at present will not justify the insertion of the prooess he desoribes. The attention of the olub was drawn by General Chandler to Jennison's Patent Diaphragm Knterers, as applicable to the farming community, as well as to the whole human family.
