As you would've found, the game doesn't offer a option to delete a save file
The recommended method is to simply start a new game and overwrite the existing save
Saying that, this can be deleted (if you really really wanted to) by purposely corrupting the save file (by, say, turning off the DS as it saves), but this should only be done at your own risk as there's a small chance that you'll end up with a partially corrupt save file that you can neither save to or load from (as someone once found out by accident)
If you obtained a "second hand" copy of the game (particularly from some place like eBay), then you could well have a pirated copy of the game (which are known to have problems just like this one due to faulty game data)
These "black screens" are usually caused by corrupt cut scene data that causes the scene (such as the one that should appear where you get the vase) not to play
As the cut scene doesn't play and you can't skip the cut scene in the Curious Village, you're basically stuck
If you purchased the game from a store, take if back for a replacement (possibly after testing it on another DS just to make sure)
I don't know what is wrong with your game but I suggest yiu send it back from where it came from get your money back and buy anew game because it sounds like the game you have got is missing data or has an error on
Load a save file you want to delete. Hit save on the same slot, and then eject the game while it's saving. Load the game again, it'll give you a message saying it corrupted a file and was deleted. Do the same for the remaining files, this doesn't erase your own file.
