Tht fnnch Itttmin. Mrn)riml aiirtiitd by tht Kr'.ncK M'rckantt / Stw York 4fr'irt H'rauIt and i: HDirtcitri ?f Ik* Fi*>ick Trant-Ailaiti'- S'eam Company. Gentlemen ?The magnitude, both of national and commereta interests, codded to tha llna of taMnara of vhtnh in" are tba directors, taken ?*?f from your company tba character of being an exclusive private enterprise At tba lama time. though tha diraotlon of tha oomptny 1" plaoad entirely in yonr handa. and though all the risks of profit ana lea* are assumed by the sharehold r? yet the support which you recslva from government. tbe monopoly, with wh<oh you ar? invested. pla o?a you la many respects, in the poaition of belonging to th* public service, and subjects yon. under oertalo IIm tv lors, to the moral aontrol of persons Interested We. therefor*, who reside at the port where you arrive, and who are connected with th* neoeas ties of this new method of transatlantic communication, feel ourselves authorised to address to you a few observations upon tha present arrangements of yonr company.and toruggesttoyou certaiu Improvements whloh it appears to us are required. We do not faiget, gentlemen, that a duty la attaohed to every rlgh(tnd if therefore, we assume the right of calling upon your compaay for the performance of your mu vice* in a manner harmonising with tha present advanced *tat? of sUao navigation, at the same tune we feel it to be our duty to render to yon, under all the clrcumstanoe*, our oordial support, an l to a**ii>t with our co-opemtlon the effort* which you will, doubtless. in like to accomplish your miation worthily. W? doubt not, therefore, that you will appreciate our position, aud give a serious consideration to the letter which we have the honor of sending yon. Though you possessed tbe experience of those who have preceded you yet the success of your first voyages did not anawer our expectations. But we were not discouraged, and were willing to make allowanoea for a first beginning. But at each voyage the complaint* of paaaangara and freighter* are repeated, accident* are constantly htppenicg, and the boat* are ?low. We ought, therefore. no longer to hesitate to give the weight of oar oollefttiv* complaint* to those which have nitherto bean p i?ate and isolated. Rapidity and regularity are lnrtispDnoaMii co/idiilon* for the accomplishment of tha *erv c h to be performed, and next the oomfort af tbe passer g-rs snd proper care of merchandise, are eonditions of t>lin??i i qual importance Let ua, then, extmlae in Bucciuioo, bow the** conditions have been fulfilled. 1st ?Rahoitv and Kloulabitv. The steamship* which, thus far, ha vH sailed regnlarly aarua* tbe A'lftutio, are the '-Great Western," which, for utarly eight years, successfully made her pa**aga*. atid hUo tbe nti-aujers of tbe Cuoard line, the miooes* of haa aoaaturtiH + K*a Viirrhuaf avnaAfutinna nf tK*n*A_ I motera of this speciea of navigation We annex to our loiter a table of the postage* of the Great Western, during 'he period of (even years, also of the passages of the Halifax steamers, from the first formation of the ocmp?ny. mod lastly of the four passages of the steamer Washington. The forced delay* of several of your iteamer* In ports at a distance from New York, render it impossible for us to make a serious comparison between the above parages and those of jour company. It will be suffloieni to remind you. that both a*reapeot* regularity and rapidity hitherto, tbe Inferiority of your ateamer* has be-n very marked. We give, therefore, these tables, rather to show what we have a right to expeot from you Does this inferiority of your line prooeed from some fault beloDg ng to our marine in general? Or la it owing to the fa il that steam navigation haa hitherto male but little progress in France ? That these are not the causes ; we have steamer* in tbe Mediterranean, and in the obannei whloh prove our superiority in ateam navigation, and besides, all those wl o have made comfilaiuts, concur in speaking highly of the skill and Intelig -new of y?ur officers and engiueera. What, then, ia th- c.iui>? of this bad snooesa T First, we ought to aay it la the bad quality of your coals on some voyages, and tbe Insufficient supply of theiu ; snd next, we ought to refer to the bad charaoter of the sailors These, however, are things easy to be remit iled. Tbe chief cause*, and thoae whloh appear to ua to threaten tbe future proaperlty of your line aioet seriously, are tbe following, whloh we will point out without aoy circumlocution The ateam-ablpa you have reoeived from government, in tbeir present oonditlon, re not capable of attaining the rapidity expooted from steam ships in general. The large masts overload and chak? tbe ahlp, impede it* aallTog, and exhauat the Kwera of the few aailora em ployed to navigate them The tiers, by a too alow evaporation, give an inadequate motive power, and soma serious accidents seem to ahow that these boilers aland in need of repair. W* do not pretend to deny the importance and the great expense of tbe modilloatlona required on these points, but we doubt not your company ia prepared with rearuro?s. We, therefore, do not bealtaae to give it as our opinion, that your ahipa require A chamge in the masta? A change in the boilers? iu in der to secure rapidity and regularity. Lastly, we would recommend you to bare a fifth steamer at your deposition, in oase of any accidents to those engaged in the regular voyages Comfort or Passcnokrs. The pa*seng?rs of the first olati complain of the general want of regularity and oleanlineH, of the insubordination of the servant* and their quarrel* among each other, of the helplessness of the stewards?and lastly, worst of all, want of providing enough provisions. We oall to your mind, that, on several ocoations. articles of the first necessity have] either been entirely forgotten or not provided in sufficiency. Wo will not go into details, but will only remind you that these ocmplaints are unanimous, and tbut tbe Britl.h and American steamers have aocustomed tbelr passengers to so muob comfort, abundance and good order, that you would do well to imitate them in these particular?, it you wish to obtain the patronage of the public. The interior arrangements of the berths of passengers of tlie first c ass, require some ohanges. fly taking advantage of tbe experience of the Amerloan packet s ips tbe oompany might both increase the number of berths and add considerably to the convenience and ci un neions. it may not be oat of plan* fc?re to mention that the room appropriated to the ship'* offi'v rs U much larger thaa In any American ship. ^'h? pstisengers of the second class hare m&ae rery heavy complaints against yoar management, VVe are willing to believe that there may have been some exaggeration here These complaints, however, have been nh'.tlly ci. 11't d by the agent* of the oompmy, who, instead (if employing the word* " between dec Is," in designating this cluHH of pafnent;*r?, gave them the pompous Dame of ' passengers of the seoond class." We would b-u the company, for its own lake, at wall aa that of tbii respectable class or passengers, no mora to gW? occasion tor complaint*, and even lawiulta, by the UN ef ambiguous word* and deceitful promise* Bestowal and Cahc or FaxiOHT. The establishment of packet vessels between New York and the continent was not absolutely indispensable, ucitber for passenger* nor despatches The English steamers presnntod no other disadvantage than that of* too gieat expense, to h ef time and money. It waa not so, however, with respeot to merchandise, which the Eoglieh steamers were not constructed to carry. Beeides the irregularity which we have above pointed out, we have to complain of great damage occasion* d by lh? sea w>ter. This bai been so frequently the case that American insurance companies have already refuted to insure any goods on board your steamers ; and it is to tie feared that the French insurers will make tha sainw refusal. This determination of the insurance companies, by depriving you of suoh an important item of your profits, would cause a dangerous disturbance in your business. We beg you to remark that an ImmeUiate remedy ought to be applied to this disorder, for orders have already been sent nut to Europe with the intention ot being snipped in your steamers; but if the insurance oilioes should refuse to Insure thegoods you carry, the m*r? ban is who expected to profit by the rapid oonveyaue? by steamer, would be exposed to the danger of reoelfli.g loo late, by sailing pickets, goods which were agrred to be delivered within a speiittad time. Beside* too d iuiMg? by (nit water, we mux also oall your attention to tbe breakage*, and bad state of a great number cf boxes of merchandize, a sort of accident extremely rare on board tbe common packetsblpa These observation! relating to tbe carriage or merchandise, have such an immediate relation to jour own Interests, that we ea 'not doubt but that you will rectify this business with a* little drluy as possible. Haying, gentlemen, enumerated tbe oomplaints made by the public against your sti auers, we ought, perhaps, to have left it to your officers and competent persons In your employ to point out the causes ot their inferiority. But we thought that by endeavoring t.p point out the remedy while we indicated the evil, we should more effrctually prove the r?al interest we take in the sucoeas of your enterprise On tbe otber hand, aware of the magnitude of tbe ohanges we have recommended, we should have abstained (torn suggesting them it it bad not been our own firm belief and perrutsion, that the future will amply recompense any well couducted company fur all the expenses it may ineur at i h* pr< sent. N?wVork is the metropolis of the commerce of tbe new world, and the port < f Havre presents tbe inost favorable point for tbe landing of passengers to all pitru of the continent of Europe As to merchandise, those kinds wbioh are of the highest va'u-t, though but otS'i a I bulk.for whioh the caprice of farhion demand** rap d passage, are all the products of French manufacture 80 tbat both as regards ptssengers and freight, tbe line between Havre and New York possesses high privileges Consequently your jompany has tbe best obauce of success, and our ardent desire is that you may soon be able to ray in tbe words of the Minister who signed your corftract. " We have dine a good business." Signed, Lfc'. BARBIKR, President. E Csylus, C. Bechet, T. Osiilardet, C. Morlot, C. BonatTe, H. de Courey , C. Jolv, Secretary.

It will be franght with big event*, and give a complexion to finanolal and commercial affaira for some time to ooma. Within the next week we ahall have the ateamer's newa, with fifteen daya later Intelligence from all part* of Europe; the meeting of Congreaa, the Preildent'* meaaage, the reporta of the arioua department*, the moat Important of whioh will be that from the Treasury Department The Presidents Meaaage will cover the whole ground relative to the affaira of the country?to the, war, to the proapecta and probabilltlea of a peace, Ice ; but the reporta of the secretaries will give the details. Ia the present position of publlo finances, considerable anxiety exists to see the report of the Secretary of the Treasury. We have no doubt Mr Walker will present a very able and a very comprehensive document, not only in referenoe to the past and present, but In regard to the future policy of the government relative to its flnanolal and commercial systems The estimates made by Mr. Walker, of the probable amount of revenue to be derived from customs under the new tariff, and of the probable ameunt of expenditures attending the war, have proved so correct that his estimates for the future will carry a great deal of weight with them He has exhibited so muoh foresight and shrewdness in all his calculations, that our financiers have a great deal of confidence in his administration of the finanoes of the government. Last year at this time everything was doubt i and confusion. The new tariff was about commencing | operations, and no one really knew what would be th? result W* were striking out into a new path- an ex- , periuent *u about being made in the most important { department of the government, its revenue, at a time j when the expenditure* were of a very extraordinary 1 character, and the amount to an extraordinary extent. The most gloomy forebodings existed in the minds of flnanciers and those engaged in commercial pursuit*, r?, lative to the resources of the government to oarry on the . war, and the estimates of the Secretary of the Treasury were looked upon as being chimerical, while the expend!, tures were magnified to an immense amount. The speeches in Congress, and the statements of Mr. Webster and i other leading oppoaition Senators, that the expenditures I amounted to half a million of dollars per day, tended ! very mnch to intimidate capitalists, and if possible, to mbarraM the ffo?ernm?nt in ft* inma ing theM thing*, the Secretary km able to make *11 the I ! loans required, upon the most favorable term*, and tlma ] bw established the soundness of bin positions, and shown the accuracy of hla estimates. He has not failed in a | i single position assumed, and the report about emanat- j I ing from hla department, will be issued under more fa| Torable auspices than the last There are no theories to \ advance now?no efforts necessary to convince incredu; lous capitalists?no new system to put Into operation, I and the Secretary has the satisfaction of showing the ! sueoesa of his policy, and the favorable condition of the j government finances, amidst the drain upon the Treasu! ry, consequent upon a war of invasion. We have no doubt but that the revenue system adopt i ed relative to the ouatoms of Mexloo, will occupy a very ' Important part of the Treasury report, and the develop- , j o?Dtl regarding the rircnun already received, and source* of revenue for additional inoome, will astonish . I tboM who have considered the Mezioan war an imm^DM burden npon the Treasury Department. The oondition 1 ot the treasury relative to future way* and mean* to oarrj on the war, will, we feel oonfldent, be inch ai to place > government stocks in a more favorable position than I they now enjoy in the market The moit erro. j neou* and ridicnlou* statement* have been put forth by i party organ*, showing the indebtedness of the government to be many million* beyond what it really la, and what official return* ?how It to be ; and the mo*t gross calculation* have been made by the sam* parties, shewing the probable Indebtedness of the government at stated times hencit, made for the purpose of Increasing the political capital of the party they represent. These I >Hi?mtnca nave Had an Injurious influence upon the ' market value of government stocks, by frightening holders and Inducing many to aell in anticipation of purabating again at lower prices. The state of the money mirk*', ha*, no doubt, had an influenoe to a certain extent, but for a eeeurlty like United States ?'?, the market value range* many prr eent below It* real value The Secretary of the Treasury's report will illustrate this fact, and Inortass theoonfld?noe of holders In the vslus ! of their investments Prices have fallen in anticipation | of government coming into the market, immediately after | the meetlag of Congress, for a large loan. It ! very ! doubtful about the government wanting a large sum of I money Immediately; the old loan has not yet been used 1 up; there is still a surplus in the hands ofSub-Trsasorers, ! which, with the revenue continually coming in, will meet the expenditures for some time. It Is not yet general| ly known what plan the Secretary of the Treasury has | perfected for providing ways and means to meet the eipendlture* of the government. after hia preeent r?touroea are exh&uited; there la no doubt but that ha will adopt goma method that will enable him to obtain any amount wanted, upon the moat favorable t?rm* without any derangement of the money market, and without any depreelatlon In the real or market t*lue of the government ctoekn now in existence. It appear* by official return* that the extraordinary expenditure* of the government during the paat twenty month*, have been nearly thirty mtlllona ot dollar*. That amoun t ha* been the ooat of the war thu* far, not paid out of the regular and ordinary revenue* of the Treaaury. i au mount oh nn raised oy man?, an issue of trfa ury notM, and by revenae* from customs upon Imports

late Mexico. The revenue derived from Mexico ban, u yet, been limited; it Is rapidly increasing, snd under* proper system, such m wei think Mr Walker cabbie of creating, will very soon be suffloient to meet the bulk of the expenditures on aooouot of the occupation of that cmintry. The complete and entire occupation of Mexico has ever been a favorite measure of the present Secretary of the Treasury, and bis financial system will cover every source of revenue that country la capable of producing. As the two countries are, In fact, under one general government. It becomes the dnty of lb* *C0r*Ury oUbs'l'rMWj toaiUnd bli juriidlctloa ow ibs whole Urrlloiy, frotb lb* rlver.4t.

Washington. Dee. 1, 1847. C" 'J/if Hrur and Ihr Tinprr of Ctmgrttt After the organizition of the two house*, the great question will of course be the Mexican war, and its collateral questions. How is peae to be obtained? when, by what arrangement, up on what basis, and through what instrumental ties! Tnere is even yet a hope of peace from Mexico herself?the doubtful star of promise twinkles again above the subsiding smoke of bsttle.? Mexico, herself, may propose, if not the terms, at least the agency through which a settlement may be effected. There Hre several plans of proceeding to this result, to wit (? 1. The ordinary alternative of international negotiation, directly between the governments of the two countries. 2. Arbitration. :i The defensive line policy. 4. Conquest and absorption. The war may be'finally brought to an end, ? through either of these prescriptions. But the ordinary means of negotiation have failed, and even the extraordinary concessions to Mexico, in the repeated offers of peace made to her, with certain defeat attending her further resistance, have failed. We expect Mr. Trist home every dav: but whether his derrirture mav or mav not recall a saving discretion to the mind* of the Mexican anarchists has been a question from wliicli a small hope has been extracted; but about which it ia sc-irce worth while expending a solitary musculation. We fear that the Mexican rulers, even if they wished it. would be alraid to say to Mr. Trist? " Stay, your excellency, one moment; wc have ugreed to reconsider your ultimatum." Yet, with the danger of absorption staring them in the face, the Mexican Congress may propose something, on or after the departure of Mr. Trist. Indeed, one idea of the recall ot Mr. Trist was persuasion?it wuto show the Mexican rulers, that while the UflBld States government has accepted the alternative of war, it is in earnest, and that while the American agent of peace has been removed, the army of Gen. Scott has been promptly augmented for the determination of the issue Dy the sword. It lias been expected that this state of thinga, together with the utter prostration of Mexico, would induce the Mexicans themselves to aak for peice, or at least to propose formally to the United States by a commissioner, or commissioners, to Washington, a plan of arbitration, of compromise, of boundaries, of indemnities, and of peace. There appears to be an indefinite hope of tnis character 1a tlnu capital, that pometningot the sort is under consideration at Queretarot or lhaf, from information received, the assembling of Congress at that place was with a view to bring about a pence, and no longer with any thing of a fixed idea of devising ways and means for farther resistance to the American arms. Wo draw, then, this happy conclusion from all the information received from Mexico, that the authorities of that country arc sincerely desirous of peace, from the poweriul reasons of an impending extinction. Now, then, let us come to our own Congress. The orthodox democracy will sustain the administration. The whigs will be divided, at first, upon several conflicting plans. The Calhoun men will go for the defensive line. But diverse and conflicting as are the grounds of these anticipated divisions of opinion in regard to the plan of peace, upon the abstract great question of peace itself there will be an overwhelming majority in its support, of all cliques of both parties, in both branches of Congress. Here, then, we find in juxtaposition, the one country prostrated by continued disasters, and the other surfeited of repeated triumphs?the one anxious for neace. that it can no lonser continue the war?the other desirous for peace, for the nuke of peace, for the sake of quiet, for the sake of economy, for the sake of avoiding burdensome taxes upon the people, for the sake of avoiding the hazards of the absorption of a strange and revolutionary people into the boundaries of the Union, for trie sake of restoring an honest harmony between the North and the South; for, unconstitutional, impracticable, unmeaning as is the Wilinot Proviso, it means seinething, or the sagacity of the South is at fault; it mean* something, or the clamor of the North ia all moonshine. It may be a mere humbug?a mere pretext; but it means something significant of danger, if we go oil; conclusive of safety, if we stop wen, men, bom countries are disposed to peace. Mexico may send us a commission; if not, we believe there will be every disposition in Coneress, as tar as we can ascertain, to bring about a settlement by arbitration. It is for Congress to settle the question?not only to declare the object of the war, but the plan for ending it. This, we think, can be done. We Begin to think a commission as, perlisjis, more readily attainable than the adoption of the defensive line. Of this thing we are pretty well assured?there will be a general desire in Congress to close this Mexican war, and " where there is a will there is a way." The Docto*. Washington, Dec. 1, 1847.
