NEW YORK HERALD. \?mv Saturday, Mity 18 W. 05- The Weekly Herald of this morning, will he ready for delivery at thia office, at an early hour. Price t? 1-4 ceuts. The New Yore Lancet.?No iloi tl??!lar Medical Journal will be published this morning a^ 0.-tit o'clock, at the Herald office, corner id X.nt-an and Fulton streets Single copies 6 1-1 cents Influence of the New \ock Herald. One ol the most marked nnd latest instances ol the mighty influence nnd power of the New York Herald, we lind in the New York American of lust evening, u very respectable daily print of about 900 circulation, conducted by Charles King, the brother and organ of J antes Core King, the principal of the firm of Prime Ar Co. in Wall street. It is as follows :? Or ten. w ere given by ('apt. Keane unf to deliver pap< t* to :i.n ot the uewsboat* unfit the Herald hoat had obtained filet for that paper. Some ot' the boats approached the hluecn at midnight, in the lower Bay, but tne collectors v. ere not admitted on board the ship, and, in u pelting rain were kepi alongside ; and It was not till this morning that the Herald land went to the ship. Its new* collector boarded, nnd when he w as supplied, the other paper* were permitted to have their turn. As this statement comes from u pure and unpolluted source,we presume it is correct. Indeed we have reason to believe it true?in fact we admit its truth? and on compulsion we would make tin aflidnvit to the fact. Now for the manner it wasdone. On Thursday last, in company with the jeune editeur, we took a trip to Coney Island to see if Governor Dorr was there, but did not find him, although we discovered " thai sword," now doinghavock in opi ning clams. After ascertaining the quality of these clams, we returned by the way of Bath anil Fort Hamilton, stop, ping a short time at each place. While musing there on the sea shore, a little before sun down, we saw through the power of rlairvoi/unfc, the British Queen coming booming along Long Island. We accordingly stretched forth our hands, joined with those of the jeuiit tdilew, which joined ours, forms a whole four horse team in magnetism, and, in the lower bay fi.\ed the British Queen for the night. By the same process, negatively exercised, we prevented all the Wall street newsboats front being able to get aboard the Queen?and Bancker, Lowlier,Blubber Lowber, Loafer A: Co., very correctly reported that the lie" raid was at the bottom of the difficulty. For this hrst instance'of truth telling, we give them thanks. This i? a simple and unvarnished account of the Vet there is nothing in it remarkable. The highly respectable editors ot the National Intelligencer at Washington, have long since acknowledged our (tower in magnetism, by admitting that we broke up the Koonskin Kabinet, and others say thai we yet keep Captain Tyler under its influence. The gallant " Col. Webb of the regular army," long since admitted that it was the influence of the Herald that diminished the value of certain State stocks in the money markets of Paris and Loudon, not the refusal of these Stater to pny the interest. .Tames G. King, the financial brother of Charles, attributed to " Bennett's influence," the indictment of nil tin- W:?11 hired mill lira fur > lilirl <111 tlm f'.mirt nf Oyer and Terminer. (If course, all wus " just so." in short, there is no end to the extent and variety of our power and influence. We go further. We have moved into our great establishment, the six story granite building corner of Nassau and Fulton streets.and we mean to make that corner, the centre of news, of civilization, of liberty, of intellect, and of power?not only the centre of New York, hut the < entre of all America?the centre of all Christendom?the centre of the whole world, the centre of the universe, and three marine leagues beyond. The New York Situ, by means of our influence, could not rest content till it got in the same mighty centre of mind and thought. Thus we go. Is it surprising then that we should go ahead 1 Is it surprising that the Wall street News Collectors felt our magnetic power! Our establishment is just complete. We may say that we have only begun our great career to reform the age. Wait and see the result*? only wait. Hereafter Fulton street will be greater than Wall street, ten times told. The Koon Skin Attack on the Navy.?The approbation of ourieniarks on the disgraceful conduct of (lit- hard cider Congress towards the navy?we may also add the army?is beyond all precedent. We never had n conception that the navy was so popular with the people, till we had seen the attempt m ide by the koon skin Congress to proscribe if. In furtherance of this fact we Teould publish a number of communications enthusiastic in the cause of the navy; but we have not sufficient space in our columns. Suffice it to say that we Trunk if Hfinii1 fnr flip l?r*?nfh r?f nnhlip mrlicrnntirm to blow tins spark into a wide broad fianie of pure I patriotism. L?t the people speak on this subject, in I mighty mass meetings, in every city, town, and I hamlet. I The " Koon skin Kongress" have nearly filled the hard cider barrel of public indignation. Arrival ok Fanny prom Havana.? Mademoiselle Fanny Elssler arrived last evening troni Havana, 111 the steamer Natchez. She is in fine health and spirits, and intends probably to return to Europe in the British Queen. We do not learn thnt she has any intention of gome by the way of Boston and Halifax?it is decidedly too far north, and too far out of the way, as n route to Europe. If she should not go in the British Qt 'en, which is now fitted up in princely style, under the management of Captain Keane, she may go in the same ship with Boz. One tiling we should like to know?is she going to Europe, without bringing out those new bnlleta she appeared in at Havana ! Certainly not Strawberries ano Crevm.? Bid you ever visit Gowanus' beautiful bay ! Bid you ever hear of Take Morrison's berry beds there ' Bid you ever iiste any <>f Juke's famous strawberries! Then il vou did, you are of course little better than a barbarian, and almost on a par with Governor Borr, of Rhode Island, including his sword. But if you have ambition, just step into F'attison's, corner of Nassau and Ann streets, call for a basket of strnwtierriet and cream, and prove what we nay. Fori Hamilton Hotel? I'teruirupk Kkirkat. 'lie of the most lovely spots for a summer visit is the elegant and well kept Hotel at Fort Hamilton, i he energetic and tasteful proprietors have pist op.'aed their house?which is now ready to receive ' )in;>ni)> i he lo>(Ue of this s[k>i is unrivalled.' At tin'mouth <>l the harbor?on the Inch bank of lite i,arrows, with the whole upper and lower bay of New 1t ork?on each hand?Staten Island and the Quarantine opposite?and the hills of Xeveraink in the blue dijtanca. fort Hamilton is one of the most lov lv spots in the neighborhood ot New York. It has also a communication with the citv !>v land and water every day l'n.Wni.ii Sat.T W.VITR Hvriis. This is the designation of one ol the most complete, e\tensi\e, and ornamental constructions that ever floated in the American waters, built under the su[>erintcndanre of Mr. Klias Thomas, and to be conducted nntlar that gentleman's experienced management, and placed this day in the berth occupied hv its name-ike and predecessor last year, at the llattrry (fridge. This stupendous work has an extreme length of 171 feet by 75. The Gentlemen's berth measure* feet by ; the Ladies' l.r> by 19 : a M-hool lor voting persons ot considerable dimensions ; shower baths upon a new nnd improved plan ; ami iinterior arrangement.* luted up in a styie 01 comfort and convenience equal to the desire* of the most fastidious. This is the Hath Mr. Thomas so faithfully proini?-d should supply tlie place of his first experiment (now in operation at the foot of Montgomery-afreet, on the final River) ; nnd the public who last year so liberally patronized him can now judge for themselves, by inspection, how far he ha? labored to realize his designs, and continue their encoitrigcmenf to his praiseworthy and public spirited enterprize.

Keane, arrived in the lower hay on Thursday night from Southampton, which place she left on the 8th of May, making a fine passage, aimdat very stormy and unusually severe weather for this season of tl?e year. The gallant Queen has thus proved herself a beau titul and safe seahoat, and her commander one of the (test and most skillul seamen that could he found in either country to navigate her. She brings its our full files up to the 8th of May inclusive. The Queen brought 42 passengers. The news from Indi i is highly interesting, as it gives full details of the exact position of the a Hairs of the British army in every part of India, and their contemplated movements against the Afighans. In the British parliament the lories still maintain their ground.

Keane, arrived in .Southampton Wnter, from Antwerp, this afternoon. She is anchored off llytlie. This immense vessel is going regularly from Belgium to New York, calling at Southampton on her passage from and to America. The British Queen will leave this harbor on Saturdav next. Her crew consists of nearly 100 men. The officers on board of her are all Englishmen. She has on board a large number of passengers from Belgium, and a number in hiKtlitJ Inr li??r in lliiu <>niintr%' rTh#? utfntiiPr iu th'.' property of the Helgian Government; and tlie arrangements respecting passengers are of a singular description. The passengers will he charged a moderate passage-money, and they will be considered as living in an hotel, and will be charged continentel prices for what they choose to eat or drink. A West India mail steamer is expected hourly at Southampton.?Globe. TttK Hovat. Masqi'k.?In Spitallields, herMiiicsty's fete has*already operated some change. The tissue of Iter Majesty's magnificent costume is made in that distressed quarter of the town, and it is an exquisite piece of handicraft, in which the clever weavers have surpassed themselves. The ground is gold, over which appear flowers, partly mattes, partly brilliant ; hut description cannot convey an idea of the exquisite nature of the tissue, the beauty of the design, and its striking effect?and we can only add that it is worthy of enshrining her who is? " The cynosure of every eye." The chivalric costume of his Royal Highness Prince Albert has issued from the looms of the same native artisans, and when set off by the manly form and handsome person of so rtt a representative of the great Edward, he will be? " Ay ! every inch a King I" The benefits her Majesty has thus already conferred have inspired us with the hope that we shall soon behold some other epoch of history figuring in another Royal pageant. This splendid /cfi is rivetting the attention of the higher etreles of society beyond any other festivities we ever remember at home or abroad?whether galas or even coronations. The voung nobility, with more than their habitual flow of huovant spirits. first began, at tlie bidding of the gracious Sovereign, this joyous race after elegant pleasure. Tliey have now involved in their impulse many of our oldest and gravest senators; encompassed by their young relatives, even as the incautious farmers are said to he by the fairies, when they trust themselves within sight of their moonlight gambols. We land intended to publish this day a further account of the preparations for this fctr, which, so long since, we had the pleasure of oeing the first to announce.

The Island Queen, which reached Bombay yesterday, brings news of the 15th February from Macao. .a series or earner arrivals nau carrieu duck our information to the dates of last month, 18lh January. Little of anv interest has within this period occurred. The Plenipotentiary had returned to lloiigKong, and on the 24th January issued a circular, notifying the slate of operations to the westward.? According to this paper, the Sesostris, Nemesis, and Phlegethon steamers, currying about 700 men, had, on the 2Hth December, proceeded up the river (on the coast opposite to t'husan) to the town ot YuYao, which they captured without resistance, the enemy having retired. The Chinese soldiers were hotly pursued by us, but in vain: at running we were no match lor them. Out of 1200 regulars, 28 were captured and some 101) killed, the rest escaped. A strong fort, live miles from Yu-Yao, was ulterwards taken, and its powder magazine and stores of every sort burned and destroyed The city "1 Tsikee, somewhat lower down, was next occupied, the Chinese having fled before us; the government granaries in the town were broken open, and their contents given to the inhabitants; end the public works were destroyed, solar as t hut was possible without injuring the town. On the 10th the steamers started for Xing(>oon a fresh expedition ; they took the citv of Funghwa, and did with it as they had done with the others.? They returned to Ningpo on the 12th. The Plilegethon steamer and R-ntinck brig of war, next proeeeded to examine the bay of llang-cliow-foo and port of Chapoo; the soundings for the shi|M had been taken and hnovcil oil : .111(1 at tile deimrturc ot the Island Queen it was believed that the city itself had fallen into our hands. The envoy is said to have expressed extreme dissatisfaction, as well he might, with all the proceedings at Hong-Kong.? The jttnk-seizingsystem, that had produced so much irritation, had been put a stop to. Intelligence had been received of the npproacn of powerful reinforcements for the expedition from I.ngland and India. Meantime the Chinese have been indefatigable in strengthening the defences of the river. Their nitrations are said to be directed by a couple of Dutch engineers from Java. The Macao passage anil Salt Junk river are both obstructed, and a few additional impediments will makp the second bar impassable. Kleven new batteries, mounting 390 guns of large calibre, are said to have been erected. These will afford somewhat more formidable obstructions to the ascent of the expedition than those formerly encountered by them?obstructions which will of course be overcome, and tli soldiers placed to defend tlieut, scattered like chaff before the first hot breath of the guns of the squadron. The reinforcements, consisting of the 2d and list Madras native infantry and artillery, embarked on the 13th March from Madras. Considerable additional reinforcements are in preparation, the state of Hurmah permitting the release of part of the troops. The 14th, now at Maulmain, and :19th Madras native infantry, at Penang, are said to be under orders to join.?Bombay Time*, April \. Camlnhar. Our intelligence from Candahar extends to the 10th of March. At that date the enemy were in considerable force within 17 miles of the city. No lighting had occurred since the 12th of January, and of this encounter we gave particulars in our last. A flock of camels had been attacked, and 200 of them carried away; they had been sent off some six miles to graze : 130 of the men who were attending them were killed. The present force at Cudahar amounts to 7,200 fighting men, with 18 pieces of artillery. A reinforcement is now on its way to them of 2,500; the garrison of Kelat-i-Ghilzie, 80 miles from them on the road to Ghuzni, is 1,000 strong. The enormous difficulty of obtaini ng camels or carriage cattle of anv sort seems to be daily on the increase. Gen. Nott s stores iif everv kind seem of late tn have been verv nearly run out; 1(10.000/ and 50,000 hall cartridges were, on the 8th ultimo, desjmtched from Sukknr and ShikariHire for his use. Medical stores for 6,000 men for six months have been sent for to Bombay. Capt. Henderson, of the Madras engineers, had been or- ' dered to quit Sukkur, where he was laying out and planning new cantonments, and proceed immediately to t'andahar to survey for a road along by the Rujjuck l'uss. so that troops might march from Candahar to Kelat-i-Ghilzie without going through the pas< at all. It is generally rumored that a portion of General Nott's force will move eastward towards Ghuzni so soon as the weather permits?everybody asking, at the same time, how they were to be moved.?Bumboy Timrs, A'il 1. Cabool. Our cares for the concerns of Cabool in a great measure ceased with the intelligence of the destruction of our army in the second week of Janua-* ry. Save in the interest felt in the hostages or captives which still remain in it, it isno more to us than it was before the Atlghun troubles began. The offi cent who remain tnere, together with the sick, wounded, and prisoners, seem to have been from the beginning well or even kindly treated. 'Hie "good Nawaub Jubbur Khan" has taken the nussing child of Mrs. Anderson under his charge, and with " the Feringeos' friend," as he was called before adversity fell upon hint, it is as sale and as secure of kindness, as if under its parent's charge. The tales of the Sepoys being sold into slavery to the Oosbegs?highly improba ble as they were from the beginning?remain wholly unconfirmed: and we believe them to be entirely fabulous. There nre considerable numbers both of officers and men, of whose fate wp have now learnt particulars; the former have been detained as prisoners, but complain of no harshness or severity; but on the contrary, speak very warmly of the kindness they have experienced ; the latter nave been dismissed without ransom, and have, in many cases, received small sums of money, to carry thein on their way. Many native rumors have, in the course of the month, been put in circulation as to the particulars of thn siege?the evacuation?and the subsequent destruction ol our army. No official intelligence st-cius 10 nave reacnen me nanus en v>overnmcni ; and no one of the surviving officers has written, at length, nnv of the details. These may not, in their captivity, he permitted materials for writing, or have leave to write at will ; thoir communications have been confined to scraps of paper a few inches square, containing accounts oi tiieir health or treatment, or of the wants they wish to have removed. Dr. Ilrydon, himself, the only Kuropcan who has,as yet,rejoined hisfriends, must either have been most defective in his opportunities or powers of observation ; for n? vet, he has told us nothing save a few particulars of his own escape The Shah Soojah continues to maintain himself ut Cahool. The chiefs, indeed, are said to have been unanimous in offering allegiance to him. Tranquility in and around the city, is said once more to he entirely restored. It is reported that he has written to Government. 1 requesting to he supplied with ?200,000 or ?300,000 I but declining military aid for the present. A letter it stated to have been intercepted, sent by him to I the Ruler of the Punjaub, requesting him to with hold his aid from us, so that the "Fermghecs" might be exterminated. We give these on imperfect evidence: evidence which, however, has been considi ercd sufficient by most of the journalists of India : strongly to implicate the Shah in the proceedings of the insurgents from the commencement. On ihe 28th of January. a letter was received from him at I Jellalabad, requiring Sir Robert Sale to retire, and - to give hostages for our abandonment of Afghanistan : this was declined to he complied with. It may l be. however, that after nil, the Shall is in the hands > of the chiefs; and that he is only playing the game a better man would think permissible when his peril sonal safety was so immediately concerned. We 4 have much reason to suspect his honesty, hut we ' have no direct proof of treachery to adduce against - hun. Jsllalabad. < Mir former intelligence froin the brigade shut up under Su |{. Sale, at Jcllalabad came down to the 2d February; now extends to the 4th March. Nothing of any very particular note appears to have orx curred to th? garrison, save the earthquake of the ' Ifbli February, since the former of these dates. We now it'iirn, however, a tact ot nome interest with which we were not formerly acquainted:?On the ' 2S'h of January a council of wur had been held to deliberate on a proposition then just received from e the Shalt Soomli nt Cahool, to the effect that we should Rive further hostoaes, anil make other nr" rangementa for the immediate and entire abandoninent of tlie country. The proposition was declined to he complied with, thoiiRh not till after a eonsider'* able debate on the suhiect had occurred. On the tnornins of the I Ith of February, I'khbar Khan, with " a raRRcd force of *<<* cavalry and 1.2U0 infantry, enn camped on the opposite side of the river under l.nR" list) tents: it was reported that lie had attacked the r rarrison. and been defeated by them four days after wards, hut this proves incorrect. Any force lie can : muster can occasion them no annoyance, unless acv cotnisinied by Runs, or in cuttinR nfl supplies. Co ' loncl IJcnnie Rave an account of 10,000 Atfirhaiis a " Hamcean with half the present force. On the 19th, ' i severe shock of earthquake which visited IVshawnr. f'erozepore, Meenit, and Delhi. and extended at" far westward as Quettah, shook down many of tin houses and some part of the fortifications at Jcllalahail, which it cost considerable trouble to repair 1. ?- i . i >> .

I >orno dissension* amongst the chiefs had excited | the hope that they would shortly be enabled to purehase their way to the plains; it was said that the it Affreedis at the Peehawur end el the passes were u illine to treat lor Sir K. Sale's retreat, but would li hear of no terms whatever for (leneral Pollock's ad- 0 s ince. The latter otlicer was prepared, apparently, c to attempt an advance at ail events, should there lie any grounds for serious apprehension of .Sir Robert Sale's immediate safety. Three hundred pound* ot money luid been Bent to him troni Peshuwur and t received in safety. The men who conveyed it got an equal stun lor their pain*? u lair illustration ot 0 the danger of the paajes. The garrison had heard p very regularly from the prisoners in the l.uglimaii w country. They continue to report themselves well, " and kindly treated. The contents of their letters- v were restricted to their own personal affairs and we ^ have hitherto derived from them scarcely any parti- t] culars of the Cabool disasters.?Bombay Timet, e April 1. a Markets.

The prices for Paris and Hamburgh rciq^ined the same as last post. The I'aiiureof the experiment of improving the prodite c tion and cultivation of cotton in Bombay u as ut the date of the Indian journal* a matter of severe comment among ' the parties connected with the planting interest, aud the fc favorable progress of the attempt in Bengal is put in strong contrast with the cause alleged to hare produced so lamentable a result as the resignation of the Americans v who had thesupnrintendenceof the improvement. It has on a previous occnsion been states] that the inefficiency of the controlling power at Surnt is openly avowed e to have caused the unfortunate result, ' nnJ that fa distaste in the party who jiossesscd it to an increased duly, . though accompanied with in, K increased pay. brought about a collision between him and | the American experimentaliters, which ended in their throwing tip their interests with the intent to return to a their own country. An issue so much to be depiored.aud s? which has been made the subject of deep complaint to the local authorities, has also found its w ay here in the shape ol a petition to the Directors of the East India Company j< from the Chamber of Commerce at Bombay, in which-ts pointed out the effects the total abandonment of the scheme would have upon the native producers. The success which has attended experiments on a small scale in I other parts of the Presidency, as well as in Bengal, they (] state, prove beyond doubt, that the culture, if made and attended to in a regular manner, anil all facilities granted, b will he followed with successful results; and the petitioners therefore earnestly impress upon the attention of the Company the necessity wuicli exists lor a new attempt, ? not only in the light of protecting the trade from the innovation of the Kyots, hilt also with the t iew of enhancing the importance of these possessions. 8 Tilt hsp iv.
