Last evening a special meeting of tion the Board of Trade was hold, to hear IV. C. Auchincloss lecture on. ''The I importance of extending our Gommer- 1 cial Relations with South America."— I TU« lecture was delivered by Mr. Au- 1 chincloss in response to a request mad« by the Board some time since. The room was hung around with I ndmkuoub l'HOTOORAnis, of brazil- I lANscBNEBY, I public buildings, cities and prominent I personages. On a table, was laid for the Inspection,copies of the principal daily I f weekly papers of Brazil and thirty I one varieties of polished nativowoods. I The audience was composed of all the I prominent buslnes men of the city. I The lecturer was introduced by Mr. I H. Mcndlnlmll, and after makingafew remarks on the close connection be- I tween our country and South America I both by geographical and civil ties, I he said that he would especially direct the attention of his auditors to Brazil, From his interesting and exhaustive description of this country, we take I the following : | * 3 140 000 square miles, embracing one 1 quarter of the entire area of the Wes tern Hemisphere. The main portion of it is a mountainous region. It has a vast sea coast, and is well supplied I with harbors, having 42. The work of improving these harbors is constant-1 ly going on, and they are now receiv ing the attention of an eminent Eng- I lish engineer. I There is abundant opportunity for river navigation. The river Amazon is navigable for 3640 miles, and with its tributarios for thirty thousand three hundred miles. The products of the area of country navigated by means, I of these livers, find a depot at Para, from whence they are exported by the many steamship lines. In 1867, the viver Amazon was opened free to the I Branclies of I am BRAZIL HAS AN AREA OF commerce of the world, the equatorial current runs along the N.

Slavery is gradually being abolished Children of slaves being free, TIIB DIVISION OF BRAZIL is into 20 grand divisions: not includ ing Hio Janeiro which benrs the same relation to them as the District of Columbia docs to our States. The religion is Homan catholic toler ant towards other religions, dissenters being debarred from no part of the Government. The government is an horidatory monarchy, and was explained by the . lecturer at length, that all might see its liberal character, and not be under 1 the impression that it was despotic Coast Navigation is protected by 29 large and 19 small lighthouses. New line of steamships are encouraged, $1, 952,000, being yearly given in sub sidies. There is AN INVITING FIELD FOll AMERICAN EN TRRFRIZB here, and is constantly increasing. Wc are about 500 miles nearer Brazil, b water lines, than England. The rai way era has just dawned on the coun try, there being as yet but fow trunk lines. Here railways are more numerous, I and pay well. Telegraghic communi-1 cation is maintained between the sea I coast towns by ocean cables, and they connected by cable, with St. Thomas which has long been in com-1 muni cation with the United States. The Press receives much encourage ment and nearly eyery province liaB a dozen newspapers. Education is fully appreciated, as a means of making good citizens, and receives liberal appropriations As manufacturers are still in their infancy, tho importations are heavy. There are %s yet, no paper mills in the country. AN EXCELLENT MARKET FOR AMERI CAN MACHINERY is here open. Manufacturers should go in person to the country to see the effect the climate will have on their productions. The field for manufac turing enterprize is an inviting one, and cannot fail to be highly renumcr ative. The principal exports are cot ten, coffee, sugar,|leather, caoutchouc and tobacco. England exerts every effort to control tlie South American trade. We import from this country over twice the amount that they im port from us; while Great Britain's importations nearly equal her exports. In order to show more clearly our su- . pineuess in till* regard, I will compare 1 l are Great Britains South American trade with that oi our country, for the year 1873. South America exports to the f United States $83,002,000; to Great Britain, $117,789,000. She imports from the United States $27,680,000; from Great Britain *111,915,000. In . a word, South America exports to Great Britain 84 per cent, more of her produets than she does to the United Stales, and she purchases about 300 per cent, more from the markets of Great Britain than she docs from those of tho United States. THB Queen change, is a most a sum to. ural, much sums, by a mail ion, He larly zle. first per to did each how mi Besides the | English trade, business relations have been established liy Italy, to run from j Uenoa to Buena Ayres, The rapid Increase in the expoita tion of the loading nrticles will appear from the following table: I Articles.

I The valley of the Amazon contains an I inexhaustable supply of ornamental I woods, the plains are covered with I herds and cattle, from which we get I hides for leather and tallow; the low lands produce in abundance, coffee, I sugar, rice and tobacco; and from the I mines we get precious metals, stones I and diamonds.

He can solve the most difficult problem,and has yet to find a sum he cannot get the correct answer to. His talent for figures is entirely nat ural, never bavin? attended school as much as a year in ms lile. lie uoe. ni sums, not by nny arithmetical rules, bat by his own, but always gets the answer correct. He has mode, too, somewhatof a refutation, and receives sums through mail from almost every State in the Un ion, which he works and answers lur mail. He is (juite notorious also for the diffic he puts to the others and particu larly the school whom he delights to puz zle. His latest is as follows: "A farmer having 12 ditches cut of differentlengtks, employs four men toidothe work.
