^ *;T d r in i NEW YORK HERALD. i". .. ij ; ^jw,:,* ~'~* D?w York, Sumlajr, Re|4cmber iW, 1N4T. Important Uw Document. We shall endeavor to publish in to-morrow's Herald the report of the Commissioners on Practice and Pleadings, which was made yesterday to the Legislature. It is very long, but it will be of considerable importance to the legal profession. Arrival from Vera Crux. The steamship Massachusetts, Captain Wood, arrived at this port yesterday from Vera Cruz, in nineteen days passage. She brings four days later advices from that port. The following are ber passengers:?Dr. Uattee, U. S. Army; Lieutenants Clements and WaJser, of the Baltimore Battalion U. S. Army: Mr. P. "P. McCnrkle, U. S. Navy. The M. has come here to have her boilers and engines repaired. There is no additional new* from the army yet She brings the report, current here for a day or two, that Col Burnett, of the New ^ ork Regiment, is dead. This we are still disposed to doubt, became there tire said to be letters in this city or in Albany, which state that he was shot through the t ali of the leg, and was doing well. The steamer Ann McKim was at V era Cruz, on the 5th, with steam up, waiting for the despatches of Gen. Scott. Interesting Intelligence from Central and South America Our files of the Cumercio del Plata of Montevideo, the British Packet of Buenos Ayres, the Di trio de la Marina of Havana, & !. &c , received !>. the recent arrival* here, have placed Ui in pns i >11 of a good deal of very interesting inform.ition relative to Central and South America. Tiie notes of Mr. Harris the United States Charge d'Affaires, to Lord Howden and Count W.ilewski, on the subject of their negotiations, and announcing to them the determination of his government never to sanction the establishment of any governments or colonies, as political communities, in any of the provinces of the Plate by any European government, is commented on somewhat feely l?y the Comercio del Plata Tn his notes, Mr. Harris stated that the M intevidean government seemed in an "anomalous" state. This seems to annoy the editor, who says that Mr. H. may think it "anomalous," but that it is none of his alfair, his only business being to protect the co mrierce of his country. The editor also affects to ridicule Mr. H *s fears of European interference. We mav add that this paper is very violent in its denunciations of JJosas. The royal geographical society of Berlin has lately transmitted to the President of the republic of Paraguay a diploma as an honorary member of that society. The Legislature of Chili was opened on the 1st June last, and the message of the President, Manuel Uulnes, delivered on the occasion, gives a a good picture of the progress that repullic is making, in obtaining a position among its compeers. The message of Senor Bulnes, is a serious document, worthy of attention, from whichever poiilt it may be viewed. Free from all that frothy declamation which is so usual in these documents in new republics, its style is succinct and clear?it . does not contain one unnecessary phrase. He says that Chili is at peace with all the world, and is moreover tree from any civil war. The negotiations with the United States for some definite arrangement of all pending claims was progressing, and he trusted from the well known character forjustice possessed by the American government, that all would be arranged equita bly and satisfactorily. lie deplores the existence of the present war between this country and Mexico. He speaks of the absolute necessity of bridges to their rivers, and in order that they might have the best models, he had sent to the United States for models of wooden ones, which can be placed in itny part of the country, and also for engineers and artisans to superintend their erection. In speaking of these orders from the United States, President Bulnes says:? " In that country thin branch of work hag received the greatest improvement*, all of which combine both solidity and economy." He had also made contracts for the speedy transportation of the mails, and recommended the subject of common schools to the especial consideration of the government. A military and likewise a nautical school, both of which have been established for some time in Chili, were succeeding admirably. He speaks of the state of the public revenue, which is increasing every year. He then goes on to say that a National Bank would be quite beneficial for the furthering of their various manufactures nnd the introduction of capital, and that if the line ol steamboats between Europe, Rio Janeiro and Montevideo should extend as far as Valparaisc through the Straits of Magellan, (as is thought ol in Europe,) nothing would be more apropos thar such a bank. The Comercio del Plata makes a great |many comparisons between the condition of the Plate republics and that of Chili, and concludes a long article by saying :? " Ah ! if the people of the Rio de La Plata woulil onlj study and ponder on the happy situation of Chili am the causes which produced it ! ' Chili, Venezuela and New Granada may indeed be looked on as the models which the other South American governments ought to follow. The exclusive privilege to construct a railroad between Valparaiso and Santiago, the capital of Chili, had been granted to Mr. William Wheelwright, a gentleman well known in the Pacific, from his connection with the Steam Navigation Company there, lie has been many years in business in the republics of Peru and r*hiIi, hut cornea originally from Newburyport, Massachusetts. This privilege he is to retain exclusively for thirty years. Mr. Wheelwright had also received the exclusive privilegefor twelve years, of constructing a railroad between Callao and Lima. The republics of Peru and Bolivia were not on very friendly terms by the last nccounts. All commercial relations between them were sun/I ?? rmA and af^nrri inrr tsi ull gpnnnnta if trnuU nr.1 UV .VW, VVV.?4Mi ?' ?" UVV?/U..?B i> "VU,U ,,Ul be long before some more definite marks of 111feeling would take place. Indeed, there was a rumor in Lima, on the 10th May, that the llolivian troops were about to enter the Peruvian territory. Meanwhile Bolivia wan tranquil, as tar as her internal arrangements were concerned; * and, notwithstanding the threatened war, was advancing all the useful improvements of her internal government. In letters received irom Lima, the government of General Castilla is represented as surrounded with domestic conspiracies, and it was said that that chiei could not depend on either the army or the people. f?eneral .Tose Felix Ignain, who was found guilty before the Tribunalm ordinario? of Lima, " o( having projected the separation from the Republic of the Southern l>epartmentg," was sentenced on the loth May, to six years exile from the Republic, with the express prohibition against hia settling in any republic whose limits connected it with Peru. I The Dftreurv) of Valparaiso noticeH a military revolution which occurred in the capital of the Argentine Province of Mendo/.a, which led to the deposal ol the Governor, Don Pedro Pa?cua Segura. This revolution was cauaed by th? Jriends of the dictator Rosas, and in his favor The charge against the Oovernor wn, thtt he afforded protection to the savage Unitariui, and allowed the return of aorne who had emigrated. O* the (?ih August, the Anerican ehip Carfb wag placed in circumstances of considerable danger in the harber of Montevideo, and was rescued from her perilous position by the oid of boats sent from a Brazilian man of war that was in the vicinity. This assistance, which at all times would have been praiseworthy, is more especially so at the present time, when some little coolness exists between the Brazilian government and our own. The United States Consul at Montevideo, K. M. Hamilton* Ksq., wrote a note of thanks to the lira/ilian ComI niandant. I Besides all this, we are in receipt of news I from <^uito to the 28th of May. There was a rutnor in that city that a project was on foot to annex the Ecuador to Peru, and it was supposed that this subject would be brought before the assembly of American (South) representatives, who were about to ass ruble at Lima, mid to which New Granada, Ecuador, Peru, Chili, Bolivia and Buenos Ayres hid a'rendy nominated mtmbers who were on ! tneir way there, and it was thought that Paraguay and Brazil would also send their representative?. Before this assembly, also the quettions pending between Peru and Bolivia, were to be submitted. Venezuela is the only republic which holds itself aloof from this Congress, so that her representative and that of Uruguay or Montevideo, will be the only ones wanting from among all the governments existing in South America. In addition to .the above, we find the follow ing articles relative to General Mosquern, ol New Granada, in one of our Havana papers:? [From the Diario de la Marina. Sept 4 ] The peace. progress anil happiness of a nation depend intimately and constantly on the correct and good principle* possessed by those persona who are in possession of tbe executive authority No matter what administrative principle predominates; because, if personal influences. (whether acquired in this way or that), which ' are necessary accidents growing out of the sooial organization itselr do not absolutely decide the greatest of human problems,they can at least hasten or retard them. The best opportunity wbioh is now afforded for the study of this truth in all its phases, and for the following of it out without losing its track, is in tho new nations of South America, whioh rose up as but yesterday, under our own eyes, who struggle on unceasingly amidst good and bad influence*, and are more or less tranquil and advanced according as they are ambitious and egotistical or patriotic and uoble. Amidst all these natious, Venezuela, New Granada and <'bill offer ai i interesting spectacle, cultivating carefnl'y, and with happy results, under the peaceful and regenerating shadow of peace and order, the material Interests, both moral and Intellectual. It seems that these two latter interests are spread only to a certain point on the continent?as Mexico, Central America. the Kcuador, I'eru, Bolivia, Montevideo, and Buenos Avres, overruu with intestinal discord, by internal and external warlare. tlr-i' of thus wrestling, always seem ready every instact to become prostrate and defenceless, to be dissolved an 1 extinguished. And where is to be found the clue to the explanation of this difference in the'destiniesof nations,which.with some blight variations, all possess the same natural elements: a population of a like origin and heterogeneous character, tbe same language, religion m.d customs, and tbu same system of j government ? II is in the men who have bad the guidj unce of the events of these governments. Venezuela has i naa a raez, i\ew uranaua a >iosc{uera, vuui i uuuu, these three generals represent and incarnate the tranquility of the three nations, which arc; marching onward to a condition which may be great and .influential. Paez has just gared Venezuela from the horrors of anarchy, which the egotist Guzman would have entailed on it. Mosquwa saved New (iranada in 1842, from the van Jal like principled proclaimed by Obando, the assassin of Sucre. 13 ulnes, accepting his re-election to the Presidency, has waved the beautiful country of Chili, from the horrors of civil war, in which it was about to be plunged by the ambitious partizaua of the admiral These three men belong not only to the history of 1 war, but also to that of civilization ; their services have been more useful and fruitful in the peaceful times of creation, organization and preservation, when they have had to teach and persuade people of almost irretrievably loose habits, inasmuch as they were uneduoated, and in the darkest and most entangled paths, where thev could not progress without danger, save by the aid of the light of illustration aud morality ; and moreover they have had to argue with these same people, led into error as they were by faithless aud heartless tribunals, the most holy truths, the clearest axioms, the most incontroverti| ble principles. These three men deserve much from their own countries, and the sympathies of all honorable men in the world. Comiug now to the second (New Ciranada) to which this slight sketch is devoted, wo mus: say that in our opinion it is the most favored, whether we look at the personal qualities or the relative situation of the countries ainoug which it was born. Venezuela, at the vanguard of the South American 1 continent, at the very ports, we may say, of Kurope, with | which it entered into intimate commerce ever since | trade in its ports wasiree. incessantly visited by curious | ur BpecuiitllUK biatruein, witu a |'U];uiav?/u Wto lUBDa v?? | which is intelligent and filled with much self-respect, hati assimilated, Itself mure quickly than its neighbors, j although still imperfectly, to that civilization which id approaching it in the westward march of empire. < hili has effected alike assimilation, both from the softness and fabulous beauty of its climate and the flat nature of its territory, *4 well as from its immediate vicinity to the straits of Magellan, a vicinity which brings it in contact with the old world of the south, like VcneI /.uela's position does with the north, and which makes its ports points of deposito for merchandize for Bolivia and T<-ru. New Granada. encompassed on all sides by immense cordilleras, with only three Atlantic ports, Kio Hacha. Santa Marta, and Carthagena. and uvery narrow extent of coast separated trom the productive parts by chains of elevated mountains, of difficult access either by water or land, with two-thirds of its population, consisting of 1 Indians indigenous to the country, an apathetic rase of the most limited capacities New Granada has thus in its isolation from the civilized world, had to create a special civilization, which has taken up many years for its elaboration ; and it this is. as we believe it is, a positive guaranty of progress, it is indubitable that on the other hand it has b-t-c. an obstacle to the rapid advance of the country and the consolidation of the institutions Mosquera has had to contend with much greater obP stacles than those overcome by I'aez and Bulnes, as these latter were assisted by the poweiful help which I the enlightening of a uation. though ever so superficially, always affords, whilst Mosquera had not only to 1 go on without such aid, but also to combat enemies of f such powerful calibre as the HStu?? Hantander, and the sanguinary Obando, who, taking advantage of the innocence and credulity of the natives, were leading tbeai quickly into ooutusion anil onaos. , I Uiuit-ral Movquera in descended from an illustrious laniily that origin*ti-d in the metropolis, and are ho i well supplied with the gift of fortune that the term ax , ' ' rich as a Mosquera ' has bocome proverbial.

His appearance Is pleasing, though he is not of a very tall stature, and Ills age is between 45 and 40.

Almighty tor his conduct.. Ohaudo placed himself at the head of the movement, and the noble generals Horrati and Mosquera went forth vallautly t<> combat, him. The civil war quickly extended throughout the Granadian turltory whiolfwill feel for many years the numerou?_ills it suffered, which, in their dmtructive career, blasted many happy hopes and expectations. In the midst of the diu ot arms, and an impoverished treasury, and the effervesctuco of contending passions, the pacific Dr. Marquei coDoluded his presidential term. General llerran being substituted for him. General Mosquera by himself remained at the head of the govern-, tnent forces, and he had the glory of puttiug an end to this fratricidal warfare, by completely routing Obando and causing him to flee to the Kcuadorlan territory During this p?riod < <en. Mosquera gave proofs net only 1 of his military talents, of hi* well known courage, extreme disinterestedness, but also of heroic firmness Among many other anecdotes, we have whicli may be placed by the side ot the one which gave the noble Don Guzman the title of the Good.'' Hit eldest son had been taken prisoner by Obando, and ha wished to force Moequera to make some very preposterous conditions for the sake of getting him back, at the same time threatening to kill the prisoner, should he (.Mosquera) advance a step. The reply of .Mosquera to this proposition was his rapid advance by forced marches, surprising and routing the enemy, and happily liberating his son, at the moment they were about to assassinate him. In 184ft, <J-?neral Mosquera was elected President, as a just reward for his valuable services, and since then the progressive unrolling of the resources of New Granada, has been apparent, as he was enabled to give the powerful impulre of his activity to the administrative machinery With the greatest good faith he called out all the aid which the capacities of the country allowed, lie surrounded himself with honorable men?he judiciously selected a number of useful foreigners, and thus protected In these elements, and strong In his intelligence and patriotism, he commenced the difficult ami repelling work of reform, and which he has kept up with a perseverance, which does not belong to this age or climate, and which has revealed the Immense resources of the Granadlau nation, resources which, before this, were hidden, and even unknown and disbelieved. Hear what was told in December, lH4tt, by an illustrious Granadian. who had been absent from bis country nearly thirty years:? "Mosquera is a man who is more activn and ambitious of administrative glory than any I have known He has regenerated all our systems of general administration; hit is at the head of a great number of enterprises of the best ina'erials From all parts he has collected skilful men. and has given them immediate and honorable employment. lie has organised, on paper, awaiting the next version of Congress, a complete plan of publio in, J struction, which will have the effect oi developing ?y?ry I branch of national Industry la. lhat, thoro I* no mook [ or oorner Into which his Innovating hand ha* not oni tvrtd." i The law allowing free trad* In gold, baa pat an and to ''' ' the muggllng of this article, and the amount of duty on w it now. collected at the pretant rate of six per cent, ex- .1 1 oaadi tbat wbicb *u collaatad under the former duty of 1 fifteen per cent, to wbicb we may alao add tba opening < , of many new mines, whloh are tempted by lawful profit# B The blows given to the titanco, (government monopoly ^ 1 of the growth or manufacture of any article) of tobacco, has infuaed new life into tbis rich productive branch. H i and Huitably prepared the mind* of people for ita total b( extinction, which will take place In fire year* from now. t The enterprise of (team navigation on the great rivers, the Magdaiena, Atrato, and San Juan, is already organ- w i/.ed with a capital of over $300,000, both private anu go- A vernmeut fundi*, and under the protection of the latter, ! I Two steamers for the Magdaiena have been sent out . from New York this summer.?Eu. Hkkald] In order rr to connect this enterprise with the city of Bogota, a ikll- a ful engineer and twelve working director* have been in brought from Krance, who are about to undertake the great enterprise of a carriage road from that city to the port of embarkation on the Magdaiena, Honda. ci Of the local works, such as the government houses, p public markets. &.o., 1 will not apeak, as 1 could not say enough about them. In tbe month of April, 1840, the exploration and plans a] of the road from Bogota to Honda were concluded, and r, tbe Legislature has assigned $600,000 to commenoe tbe work. At the hhria time. nrimtliUniu wero ntinnAil with an al Anglo Uxllic company lor th? op?nli g of tbe luttAnu* of tti Panama, which would bring New Granada in intimate contact with Europe, and would make it the depot of all the population which inhabit the borders of the Pacific, tb TbiB gigantic enterprise, which would insure lorover tlie 0f peace add prosperity of tbe Granadlan people, must be nearly ripe and ready to be put in execution ? The foreign credit, which had sunk so low as to leave ec the bonds of the public debt worthless, a* it* interest it could not be paid, thus giving rise to angry remonstran- . ces from British creditors, who threatened to compromise the external peace, and lowered the dignity of the tb government, has been resusoitated; and we do not exag- oc gerate when we say, that under the administration of Mosquera it is daily acquiring more solidity. The worthy brother of Senor Mosquera, the Minister 03 Plenipotentiary near the Court of St James, at this date must be in Madrid, endeavoring to obtain from the government of her Majeaty the Queen tbe ratification of a treaty of recognition, friendship, and commeroe. ei All these facts. although thus mentioned collectively, M without entering into detail, for want of sufficient time and data, suffice to give some idea of tbe person whom w we are writing of j and permit us to prophesy, tbat when fo he concludes bis term of office, he will have changed tbe tj, face of his country to a most favorable, moral, social, and industrial aspeot. ^ ac The Equinoctial Storm and Its Effect*. ou We had a few blows and rain storms last week, M which, it appears, were hut the fore-runners of of the great equinoctial. The pleasant days just P passed were but a delusion; for many were led to ra hope that the old fashioned storms peculiar to this a*! season, and which were generally of a destructive character, had neglected to pay us their an- ^ nual visit. ta In the afternoon ol Friday, rain commenced ^ falling gradually, with the wind changing and ro v irying from all quarters of the compass, and " continued in this mannerduring the night. Yesterday, (Saturday,) morning, the wind hauled to ta the north-east, from which quarter il blew a per- wl feet gale,accompanied by sudden gushes and tor- ha rents of rain. As late as 12 o'clock last night, cl< the storm was raging without the slightest indi- "J cations of an abatement. The streets through- ** out the city were flooded, and it is presumed that an the cellars in the lower part of the city have suffered great damage. Many stores located in exposed streets were compelled to close, owing to ,la the intensity of the wind, and apparently but th little was doing in any branch of business. The co streets were nearly deserted, none venturing out th hut those who were necessitated by urgent busi- su ness. The air, during the day, was cold, dreary ?0 and exceedingly uncomfortable?fires and over Hi coats were in genera requisition. cl1 Apprehensions are entertained for the safety of vessels on the coasl ; hut, as yet, we have heard of nothing beyond a few slight accidents bi in the bay. A few days,we hope, will bring the b report of the safe arrival of those vessels, which M may have been so near as to preclude a chance of o? weathering the coast or to stand to sea. u? The brig Linden, ly ing at anchor near quarantine, dragged her anchors during the blow yes- tt, terday, and was driven foul of the public dock, fortunately without damage. The bark Panchita was blown at the same time from her moorings, *. and came in contact with the same dock, but re- b, ceived little damage. We have heard of no other accident among (.( the "hipping worthy of note. Many of the steam- H, boats leaving for the Sound and other places were i? obliged to defer their departure. The Hay .State id was the only one running in an easterly dree- rc tion able to leave. It is said that a number of ^ unfinished buildings in Broadway, and other pans 01 me cny, suriereu Dy me violence 01 mc i wind. ?l In the vicinity of Second avenue, Tompkins' I park and other streets up town, the treea and , shrubbery Httactied to the private dwellings were | i'1 lorn up iind scattered in all directions. j I In ISrooklyn, we are told, the young trees planted as ornaments in the vicinity of the new City llaLI, and those of the more unprotected M streetB of .South Brooklyn, were entirely de- K stroyed The streets throughout the city were covered with trees lying about in confusion, : 0 having been torn roots up and all by the winds, i 11 The steamer Traveller, which lelt at 6 o'clock yesterday morning for New Haven, sue- i a ceeded in reaching Hand's Point, when she was % compelled by the severity of the storm to put I g( back to this city. The steamer Southerner, which was to leave j F for Charleston at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon, lias postponed her departure till 9 o'clock tomorrow morning. D "Tiisy ark Passing Away."?It isour.painful duty to record the death of Major William Popham, whose services in the war of independence are gratefully acknowledged by the w hole > nation. In addition to being the oldest commis- u| sioned officer of the United States, he held at p the time ol hijs death an office which the immor tal Washington tilled, viz : me Presidency ot tne 0 Society of the Cincinnati. lie died yesterday J morning at tlie advanced ago of ninety-five years, and his funeral will take place this afternoon ? trom his late residence, No. 122 Waverly Place, jj at half-past five o'clock, and will be followed to u his last resting placc by the members of the society of which lie was president at the lime of ^ his death, and a large concourse of sorrowing friends. * ... ? n The Steamsiiii' Biitannia.?The mechanics engaged in replacing the keel, forefoot, and re- Jj pairing ot+ier slight injuries, were at work during ' the whole of Friday night and through all the ; storm yesterday. There is more work upon her than was at first expected,but the utmost despatch is being used to have her ready to leave for Boston on Wednesday. The repairs will certainly not be. completed before that day, although a large number of men are employed day and night. Notwithstanding their great efforts, the prospect of her sailing from Boston on Friday, the 1st ( prox., under the circumstances, are rather poor. ; One of the crew ofthe Bi itannia fell from a lad- j , i der on the outside of the vessel, to the deck, and j fi I was killed. f. News from Trinidad dk Cuba.?By the brig j n l Mazeppa, Capt. Colson, we have received the ( i Corrto of Trinidad to the Iffth ult. j ? They were suffering much from drought in i a that vicinity ; and on many plantations, whole crops of corn were lost There was much scarcity of provision* also, j and the papers state that some of the p;irts of the ?t! ; Island were Kiiftering much from this circum- 0 | stance. Femat.e Saii.or Boy.?The schooner St. I Mary's, Capt. Black, of Baltimore, with coal, which went ufehore on the Tortugas Reef, a Bhort I time ago, had a cabin hoy ot remarkable good ! looks and smartness, but as the vessel appeared ! j to he in danger, fear overpowered every other consideration, and he blushingly confessed herself no boy, but a veritable woman in breeches, i The captain was more than ever alarmed at this i novel peril, and it is said has exhibited gr^at remorse ever since, tor sundry thumps and growls . bestowed upon her, the common heritage of caain boys. At present she is with a family in this place, and Joanna is a very modest, ana really a clever girl. This whim of donning attire ? : not belonging to her, is deemed a high offence by 1 some of the ladies of the Key, whilst others " ; equally commend it as a gallant feat, betokening \ (tune an early disposition to wear the breeches. . I The itffair has assumed a serious aspect, and it J 1 is believed that the breeches have the majority j IkwMnl and ImImI. I'ahk Theatrk.?Mrs. Mowatt appeared again at tb? wrk lent evening.

On Monday even' ig the new play of " Armand " is to be produced. Bowkry Thkatrk.?Although we had a very fair spe men of an equinootlal storm yesterday, the Bowerj beatre was tolerably well filled last eveaiDg by a nu erous and respectable audienoe, who appreciated and jplauded the performanceH. Tha " Carpenter ol ouen" was very well enacted, and Mrs. Phillips is de rving of much oredit for inducing the child in hei 'ms to ory so lustily aa it did; it added considerably tc is amusements of the evening. We must announce t< te friends of the Bowery that Mr. Jackson will treat tern to an entertainment to-morrow evening, the equal ' whioh they have not enjoyed for a long time. It is a and patriotic drama, founded on the war with Mexico ititled " The Siege of Monterey." We shall refer tc more at length to-morrow, and shall oontent ourselvet i present by saying that it will b? the most splendid ilng ever produced at this or any other theatre in th< tun try.
