J UVVWI V. day cornea forward with some special do?e. Mr. Clay, in his recent amateur maaaage, gives us his plan ; then ex-Secretary Gallatin comes with his message to Congress. We give, in another * part of this day's paper, three or four several plans upon this question. One of these, very remarkable to find, is from the col?mns of our cotemporary the Courur and Eaquirtr?the others are trom anonymous quarters. But the moat important of ail the piano, is that contained in a letter from our Washington correspondent?a plan proposed by Gen. Quitman, and which really seems the best yet devised. The pacification of Mexico, or the settlement of the Mexican question, is, indeed, a difficult matter, to be decided by the American Government. Every fresh arrival trom that unfortunate republic, only proves the impossibility of making any treaty, and the inutility of expecting any settlement with them, as an independent nation. All the elements of social and political life are in uuer confusion; the military caste is nearly demolished by the American arms; no one knows where Santa Anna is ; the attempts of Parrdes to go back to a monarchy, or of Almonte and Penato establish a republic, Will probably be equally fruitless. It is now very probable that the most important element in the settlement of the Mexican ques uon, win dc tne Mexican clergy, by whose means this object, perhaps, may be effected. In this view of the subject, the recent rreeting to address tbe Pope, held here at New York, and the purpose of Mr. Polk to create a mission to Rome, may have a very important bearing on the general queation. If, through the contemplated mission to Rome, some influence might be obuiaed with the holy father, it would be possible, perhaps, for the American government to come to some pacification through the clergy. But what this may be, no one can tell. We muat wait for events. Philosophical Intkllioinci.?When one philosopher leaves us another comes. Professor Agassis has been here for the last.few weeks, giving lectures on natural history to admiring audiences. His last lecture was the most remarkable one of the whole series, for he showed that the creative power of the Great Maker of all things, had been entirely exhausted in his last great effort to make man in the shape he is in.? This is a most curious conclusion to arrive at.? Man, in his present condition, is not very perfect. He has a great many weaknesses, and we think, without disparagement to Prof. Agassis, or to human nature, that a great many improvements could be made in man, and woman too; and yet this distinguished savan believes that the whole circle of creation is new complete, and that we have nothing higher to exj>ect than what we see. Well, if it is so, it can't be helped; but we hope there are some wonders of nature yet to be developed. A new philosopher has commenced? Professor Mitchell; who is delivering lectures 011 astronomy; and we hope, before he closes his course, that he will give us his opinion about the characteristics of creation, and whether, really, in his belief, the power of the Almighty has been exhausted in furnishing the world with the weak and erring mortals we see around us. On the whole, however, the ingenious author of the "Vestiges of Creation" produces more conclusive proof to us in the idea that we are merely in u nrnerrpttiaiafatp tfint th#? Divine Pnwpr hn* ~ ~ - ' by no means exhausted all the powers of creation, but will work great changes in the next ten millions of years. Progress or the Aok.?That very remarkable and ingenious philosopher, Orastus Bronson, hat been issuing his thoughts down East, and ap pears to be decidedly one of toe most ultra ca tholics of the day. During the last six or eigh years, Professor Bronson, from the exuberanci of his originality and the pressure of his genius has adopted almost every Christian belief that hi could lay his hands upon, believed them all, anc has made a complete circle of piety. He is now one of the greatest catholics of the day. Judging the future from the past, we would not be surprised to see him adopt Mahominedanism in lest than six months; and in order to facilitate him in this transition, for this is an age of transition, we have an excellent copy of the Koran, which we will present him with, and which will furnish him with arguments with which to create a fresh sensation in the world. Thk Rothchilds.?The history of the present house of Rothschild?its first beginning, its rise and progress, and the steps by which it attained its present power in the world, is a history of great curiosity. During our visit to Europe, we collected materials for such a history, in Paris, London, Frankfort, Vienna, and Naples. The parent of the house, and the mother of the whole race, atill lives in one of the narrowest and dirtiest ts of Frankfort, yet the branches, in all the capitols of Europe, and their descendants, live in the most splendid palaces. They are connected with all the governments of Europe?are concerned in all the great speculations of the day?in corn, cotton, stocks, and every thing; and even American stocks,that are somuch talked of in Europe, was one of their chief objects o speculation before the States failed in paying their interest. Tbeatbjcal Busiotms.?The old theatres seeir to be picking up every day, and the new onet getting into a worse position. We understand that Mr. G. Vandenhoff has resigned his post of stage manager at the Broadway theatre. We are afraid that Col. Mann, whom we highly enteem, and who is a very worthy gentleman, lias nnt vsrv urall nrar-t i-.J * t 1 ?. - ?v.7 ?V.. wi|auucu I'vupi OI UUQer IIII1nagers to carry on his buaineaa. Tha new theatrea hava a hard hill to climb before they can get to the paying paint. It would be almoat aa cany to go to the crater of Vesuviun < n the shoulders of a dosen Neapolitans, and nearly as cheap, ax to build up anew theatre in New York. Cheat Booaan.Lino.~We are on the verge ol a great ravolution in the article of literature anc cheap books. By the inventiona recently mndt in printing machinery by the ingenious Mr. Hoe, ol thia city, we look to the day when the preseul prices ol cheap literature now issued by the Harpers, the Appletons, and other booksellers, will ba reduced to at least one-third, if not one-half, what u is at thia time. Indeed, we do not despaii to see the day when literature (we don't speak ol newspapers) will be as cheap in the United State; aa it is in China. From St. Caoix ?The ship Emily, Captain Davis, arrived yesterday, in a paaaage of thirteen days, from St. Croi* No news. Timothy Childs, Esq , of Rochester, died on board th< Emily on the 36th ult. He was a brother ol Col. Childs, the gallant aommander of the Ame riaan forces at Puebla. This extraordinary system of communication is only in its infancy] Every year, nay, every month, Mtu to be only adding to its powers and augraent ing its efficiency. One of the greatest drawbacks to the general utility of the system is the expensivenep* of conveying messages or intelligence from one distant point to another. Growing out of this expensiveness, attempts have been made to arrive at economy, by improving the mode of communication, so far as relates to the characters used. When we first attempted to bring into action the powers of electricity for communicating early intelligence from distant placet*, this expensiveness was a great drawback to the enterprise, together with the tediousness of the operation, which particularly was the case when there was a great press of business at the various telegraphic offices. In order to obviate these obstaclesfa8 well as to obtain a more economical use of the telegraph for the newspaper press, an individual connected with this estab lialiment?a person of great ingenuity?invented a mode of operation which haa been in use for the last year, and which haa been found exceedingly ingenious, economical, and uaeful, both to the proprietors of the telegraph and to the public at large. As specimens of the working of the system, we submit the following market reports, dated the 13th, and published in the Sunday Htrald of the 14th of November, and copied into the Philadelphia papers next day. One peculiarity of this system is such, that where a word is incorrectly sent, or " murdered" by the telegraph, its meaning can generally be ascertained by what comes before and after it.

Treasury notea par. The difficulty of inventing a system of shortj hand for condensing communications to be transi nutted by magnetic] telegraph, grew out of the , 'act, that no stenographic, or short-hand, characters hitherto in use, could be adopted, trom the , nature of the registering machines. Moreover, i the telegraph companies, by adopting rnles, to charge all figures and all letters in arbitrary , words, not forming common English words, each hb a wora, iorceu upon tne inventor the necessity of inventing a plan of condemnation, by the use of plain English words; fraught, however, with a comprehensive meaning unknown to the telegraph operators themselves, or other parties thun those taught its use. Before, however, the rules of the company became known, the inventor devised a system of arbitrary words, which was afterwards thrown into the fire, on account of the rule above stated- He then set about devising one calculated to come within the requirements of the companies, and at the expense of of intense and long continued mental labor, he devised no less than three different plans, each of which, in its turn, was rejected, until the last was matured, and which, by subsequent improvements, has been rendered, in the opinion of those competent to judge, more perfect than any thing of the kind can probably ever be made, and I which the inventor has in daily use be'.ween t New York and seven other different cities.? ; Various other parties have devised plans, but those who have been made acquainted with each consider this by f*r the most complete and com1 prehenqive, and especially so for commercial re' porting, which ia attended with much difficulty, and reouires much patient care. Thus, the sva lem provides for giving the quantities of articles sold, the names, kinds, or qualities of each, and the prices at which each sold, with 'such minuteness as to express all the simple fractions f a unit, as 1-10, f, and so on up to j or 7-16, or 1&-16. It also provides for all the general information about receipts, Btocka on hand, sales and quotations of stocks, freights, depth of water in rivers, hip news, clearances and arrivals, dullness, quickness, activity, falling or rising, state of I markets, icc. The economy produced in tolls I by such aHystem, when it is known that every word costs from 2| to 5 cents each, is very great, and enables newspapers to rececive communicaj tions which they could not otherwise take, on account of the expense, and gives the telegraph I lines business they would not otherwise get, and l?adsto the creation of much collateral business [ This is a wonderful invention indeed, em bracing principles of economy for the newsp.i( j per press, and allowing the companies time to devote their energies to other ameliorations. And yet this economical system, we are informi ed, has given umbrage to some companies and i managers, and they are endeavoring to find out other measures less to the advantage of the newspaper press. We think this is ill-judged, I and that they ought to encourage every method in aid of the press and its economical supply of words, for the less time which they have to de ..vete to- th* prem, the more they wltl have for t'i<* public. But the truth la, the whole te1 'graphic business ta an experiment, and Con* gress ought to take it up, and examine whether it might not be made a branch of the Poatoffice Department, thereby securing its general use and efficiency throughout the whole couatry. The proapecta growing out of this wonderful invention are unlimited. Ita application in our own country may be greatly extendedLines could be extended from the Observatory in Washington to all our principal seaports, and as the ball drops at meridian in Washington, a ball could be made to drop at the same moment in each seuport; or a cannon be fired in each, by which sea captains could set their chronometers. Thus one good observatory at Washington could be made available for all the seaports and principal cities on the continent. By similar means, clocks could be set up and mads to tick at the same moment, and keep the sams time, and show the daily longitude for very city in Ameridh. This application of electricity is but in its infancy. The day of judgment is at hand. The time will come, probably, when Cuba will be connected with the continent, and Havana and New York thrown into daily communication. If so, other West India Islands may be connected with Cuba. as civilization advances, plans may De perfected for connecting Europe and America. Russia has only to run a line through Siberia to the Straits of Karasch&tka, and we to run a line hcnce to th* Pacific, with a branch to join the Russian line across the straits aforesaid. Then, by connecting the capital* of Europe with Sr. Petersburg, all parts of the civilized world would be thrown into daily communication. The English, by running a line to Constxntinople, might cross the Bosphorus into Asia, and thence extend lin' B to Bombay, Calcutta, and even to Canton, in China. This may, and probably will, happen, in the course of years. Latch from Havana.?By the bark Childe Harold, ,Capt.

The fairy legend on whiah thla ballet is founded, is a wild and fanolful one. but beantlfnl in the extreme; and the manner In whleh it has been worked up in the ballet which ia presented on the Bowery stage, is highly favorable to the full development of all soenie etfeot. The scene laying on the banks of the Rhine, enables the Bowery folks to shine out in this line. In addition to the Willies, we are glad to see the Intensely Interesting drama of the "Bottle" is to be brought forward?It is truly the m"it eleotri lying domestic drama that we have ever witnessed, and one whloh is well calculated to do more geod in the way of lnouleating the sad effects of Intemperance than any leoture that has ever been delivered.

Marcus L. Filley. for the prisoner In open log the oause in b?halr of tb? people, the district attorney gave a synopsis of the case he expected to make out. The testimony would be nearly ail circumstantial and would go to show, that ?" the murdered man, an aged and respected citlsen, had kept a public house and was respected by all who knew him The prisoner wm confessedly addicted to drinking, and when under the influ^noe of spirit*, his passions were always fearfully aroused. Deoeased bad not an enemy In tbe world except the prisoner. 80metlm dnoe, prisoner kept a tavern with hi* father. Some diffloulty 0 'currlng tbe father was deprived of hi* property, and driven int o 'he street by his son. The father prooured an humble plaoe, and kept a *ort of baohelor'e hall, living upon the oharity of hi* friend*. He was in tbe habit, lik? other old men, of taking a mid-day sleep On the 19th, the old man was seen around In the enjoyment of he?l h A Mr. Smith called on him on Friday, to make him a present of some green oorn He paased In at the door, put bis hand upon the old man. and finding him de >d, gave the alarm. He was found inclining on his right, side, lying on his bed A large gash was out m bts head | The oounsel here related the oiroumstanocs of the 1 wound?the instrument it was done with, an axe?and related many olrcumstanoes to show tbat the murder i was committed on Thursday When Mr Smith g?ve I the alarm, tbe prisoner was notified, and his conduct j was very singular. He was Informed tbat hie father was dead, but he said nothing. He was again in- I formed, but he said nothing At length he walked | from his room deliberately down into the bar room of the tavern where he boarded, wished his hand-, | and ooolly called for a gla** of brandy?although bis father wa* lying dead In an adjoining building He evinced no feeling on looking at the corpse of hi* tamer?aunougn mac corps* wan surreunueu oy iae ; weeping member* of the family.

I:. 1 wan found that on- blow of tbe axe had killed him Tli orisoner at tbe time said he had onnversed with the old , man in the early part of Thursday evening The object of this remark was to induce the belief tha the old man ; was murdered late on Thnrsday eveiing, as tbe prison er would be able to prove that he waa somewhere 4s? at the time of tbe commission of tbe crime All the evidence would go to show that the murder was oonuni W on Thursday. Mr. L related severri stories which the prisoner had circulated, contradictory in themselves ? A bad feeling bad existed between tbe prisoner and lil< father On one occasion, when the Utter was unwell, be had remarked, ' let him die?he's oiily lit to have a b .11 hole through him !" About a week before the murder prisoner was at his father's place, intoxicated, and abused tbe old man. lie desired his father to give him bis wHtcli but the old rnau refuted, when the prisoner told him to '-go toh-U!" A nuht or two belorw the murder, the son again called upon bis father, and aitbr repeated insults said, "O - d d? n yon, I'll be the mesne of your end !" An angry fit oftbe ton's took plaoe ou Wednesday before tbe murder Home personal property ?a horse, ka? possessed by the old man, was the occasion of it. On tbe same d ij he remarked to some oa? else mat * lie >4 b< d ? J if he Uid not havo It >11 settled In a week " Several other remarksof tbl? kind Were spoken of by the oouuBel fur the people (A map ut the m-ighb, rhooU whs here exbltiitid). The prosecution would sb. w tb?t the prisoner left Marvin's store on the evening of th murder, protessedly to go to his boarding house at Ollendorff's. aoross ttie street, at about. nineo'clooa. About ten o'Uook he came to Ollendorff's?rim irked that 1' was cold?and said that he had b*en to call on rum friends This was the time the muider was J During the Coroner's examination, a Mr. Cramer wn: oolied o to the staod At the time ot the murder li had driven by the house, and had seen a man enter the building, where the old man laid The man had h slouched palm-leaf hat on, entered hurriedly and ouu tiously, and it was his Impression that he was of th.' same slae as the prisouer When testifying before fli.
