It was reported that Mehemet Ali had offered to the Porte to send seven regiments of the line to assist in disarming the Syrian mountaineers Ibruham Pasha left Cairo on the 9tb (or I ppvr E--;*pt, to superintend the erection of sugar mills, which h- is building for Ins own account. The P isha had acceded to the proposal submitted by the British Consul, that the import and export duties be tor the future levied upon valuation o! merchandise, and in Egyptian currency, without reference to the tariti of The trade in cotton had also been declared free, the five per cent duty on the imports becoming i?ayable from the 26th of June. The letters from Constantinople are to the 18th of June. A: in extraordinary council held at the Porte on tic iffurs of Syria, the various points of the quests, m wre fully debated, each foreign minister giving his. anion on the subject ; audit appears that th'-v unanimously agreed that the policy hitherto pursued by the Divan, with respect to that country, was conformable to the real interests and dignity of the government, and should consequently be perse The Overland Mall?India and China. The Indian M lil arrived at M ir-^illes on the29th of -Tline. The following telegraphic despatch readied London on Friday:? < -neral Pollock liad joined Sir R.

The answer was not known. Genera' Elphinstone di"d on the 23d of April. The accounts from China are interesting On the I8t!i of March tiie Chinese, ]o,??t.t or 12,000 utr 12. tried to lake N'ingi'o, while another force attacked Chinghue In both instances they were repul-ed with cou.-iderable loss. The details nave since been received. The mail is despatched from Bombay on the 23d of May, ten days earlier than usual, in order to avoid the monsoon. The Chinese were allowed to enter Ningpo w ithout opposition, but upon reaching the market pl ire were attacked on all sides by the British troo|>r and instantly routed When they got within one hua Ired vnrds of the British guns, a terrific fire of r i and c mister w is poured down upon them ? T on ?! -I in confusion, leaving about 250 dead.? Th I Mi regiment wis then sent in pursuit, but ui> to the last accounts h id not vet returned. A simtil t i ieous attack h id been made upon Chinghae. The enemy were again routed. The British did not suffer i "ingle casualty at either place. This appears to have been onlvpart of a concerted attiek, as at the same time fire boats were launched against the shifts. Th- in inuarin* also contemplated an attempt upon Chu in. lor which purpose 'hey h id collected a consi |rr Pile force on the island of Taisam. Their int?-nt|o s were, however, frustrated,by the Nemesis ho'i i. been sent to reconnoitre, and ascertain the ex' nt of th?ir preparations A boat having been des latch *d from this vessel, was fired on by the Chi''"se, wli n pulling into a creek The steamer's crow were immediately landed They succeeded, after killing many of the enemy, in capturing 30 junks, supiiosed to have been intended to convey troops to Chilean. It w is rem irked that all the Chinese soldiers left dead at Ningpo and Chinhae had a few dollars aboip them It issuppos-d from this that a gratuity was issued to them immediately before tney attack"! the city, in or ler to induce thein to advance. n 1-1 111 in u nit* r.nipvror n ?s ordered niat the provinces which arc the neat of war -hall defray th whole of us expenses We 111 iv conclude, therefore, that the Cabinet ofPekin do not conceive it necessary to in ike a if rent 11 itiona! effort against theii loes Tiie inhabitant.* of the invaded provincesar< naturally disinclined to bear the whole of the heavy pecuniary charges necessary for carrying on hostilities. The consequence is, that the Chinese arim to the south of the Ilung-how river is in want oi pay an 1 I t.tnte of supplies, front which cause th troops were in such a stale of insubordination that it wis expected they would shortly disband tliern selves. The de iih of Shall Soojnh is also confirmed ; he fe'l by the h m I of Zemaun lvhan, brother to Dosi Moh enme I The most sati.sfactosy intelligence h id been received of the Cubal prisoners; Capt. M'a o/ie. one of their number, had been permitted bv Vkbnr Klian to visit the camp at Jellalabad on parole, is ihe bearer of a despatch from Maior Potting*r, and to treat for the ransom of his companions. He brouvht news of the death of Gen. Elphinstone on th- 211 of April The other prisoners were (loin r well, and had been treated with considerable kindness. It is said that ait enormous sum had been demanded for their ransom. Bv a notification from the pleni|K>tentiarv, it appears that the Chinese will be suffered to use their own discretion in fortifying the banks of the river between Whampoa and Canton ; but that if they venture to erect new works below the former place, hostilities will he immediately resumed. The state of trade at Canton had improved, many sales li tving been effected during the latter part of th" month of March. Opium was sold at very low raf"s. Trade had been carried on as usual, but, with the exception of cotton, not upon remunerating prices. Barter was the only means of commercial interCOIl-Se. Sir Henry Pottinger continued at Macao.

Livihcool Cotton Market, July 3.?To-day's demand for Cotton has been mo derate, and the sale* amount to 1400 tags, including 600 American lor export. Prices are without alteration, hut there is great ditliculty in effecting sales. July 4?The demand for Cotton to-day has been far from being brisk, and yettheroha* been a numerous at tendanceol the trade, who air evidently under tha necestitv of purchasing for immediate consumption ; about 4000 bags nave been disposed of entirely to the trade, . with the exception of 100 American and 300 Hurat taken for export. The market is well supplied, and prices have | no tendency to advance. LivKarooL Cotton Mabeet, Friday, June 34.?The cot' ton market has this week been without animation, hut on 1 the w hole a frir amount of business has been dono, 36,610 ' bags having been disposed of. Exporters have been con- i .-tantlv on the look out, their pun base amounting to 3000 American, .'10 Bra7.il and 130 Surat. Speculators have I bought only to a moderate extent, they not haviug taken mom tban I 100 American. The market has brum abun' dandy supplied, especially with the common ami middling qualities of American descriptions, and for which firices are barely supported. Holders show no deposit ion lowever to press sales, there being some confidence in the maintenance of present rates from the fact,that the stork of American cotton now in the port is 40,000 bags less than were held at the corresponding period of las' year. The imfiort of tbo week amounts to 44,661 bags. Fbidav, July 1.?The Cotton market has been without animation throughout the week, but the salos amount to 37,460 bags of all kinds. Exporters have been constantly on the look out, and have taken 1400 American and 440 Surat. Speculators have been vary supine, their purchases not exceeding 1600 American. The trade have taken more than their mull weekly supply, although the Yum and Goods market last Tuesday at Manaheoter, was without the least improvement. The market has been well supplied with Cotton, hut prices have undergone no change, although the stock in the port has been on the increase during the last two w eeks, owing to the extent ot" the import. I.ast month there were forwarded into the country unsold 3900 American, 150 Bahia, aud 300 Sural. There hove he. 11 declared forpublic sale nest Friday, 1050 Saa Island, and 100 Stained. The iuqort of'he week amounts -o 44,393 hags. To-day there ha- tieen rather a large attendance of the tiade.oiid pretty nearly 5000 bags have been disposed of at the rates current during the w eek. The Tea Trade?The China news has not|liad any j particular effect on the London tea market, though it ' serves to confirm the steadiness that has characterised it j lor some time past. The business done lately solely by I private contract has been to a very fair extent, and the dsliverics last month were highly satisfactory. The letters from China will not reach till n?*t week. On the 80th tilt, the stock of tea iu Loudon wss 33,107,736 lbs. and at the corresponding date of last year 37,040, 331 lbs. In addition to the stock now held about 3,300,000 lbs. have been received by three or lour vessels that have come in. The stock of Congou constitutes 31,837,000 lbs. of the total quantity on hand. Tne deliveries this year have been 17,615,837 lbs, or an increase over those to the corresponding period in 1841, of nearly 600 000 lbs. The imports have greatly increased, being 10,809,186 lbs. this year, without the 3,300,000 lbs. above specified, against only 6,398,779 Ids. to the end of June last > ear. Our exports of the leaf have rather fallen 1 off thts year, but the home consumption from Loudon lias risen from 11,351,146 lbs. to 13,066.837 lbs. These statistics at the present time are of some value. Manchester, June 25 Our cloth market was never so depressed as it lias been this week, and men of all shades in politics seem to think that things are likely to grow even worse than they now are, indeed, there docs not appear t? lie the smallest hope from any quarter; and strange to say, speculation is altogether out of question. Twist is saleable to a fair extent, out again prices are in favor of the buyer. Two mills belonging to Mr. Richard Roberts, Manchester, will cease working this day (Saturday.) The very extensive mills of Messrs. Stirling and Becton, in whish it is said t wo thousand hands hare been employed have not been working since last Saturday. Another mill, and an extensive one, belonging to a company, will either totally close to-day or next Saturday, or the 'greatest part of the machinery will stand still. The Oxford Road Twist Co., will stop four hundred looms this day. Messrs. Sharp, Roberts and Co., the well known and very celebrated locomotive engineers, gave notice a few days ago, it is said, to tu-nnr 11, nu.

On the market days in lt*38?37 there were brought lor sale in the Manchester Cattle Market 1,406 head of cattle. On Wednesday last only 361 head of cattle were exhibited lor sale. Leeds, Saturday.?The markets at Leeds, during the past week, have presented no new leatures. The demand [ ibr line goods continued limited, the principal cloths sold being heavy low priced fabrics. In Petersham cloths there is not quite so much doing as of late. Some of the merchants' warehouses appear to be pretty thronged. The new wool that has to come to hand appears to be of a better quality and somewhat cheaper than the remains of the former clip. Prestox.? In this town out-door relief is now given to eight thousand mora persons than was the case two years ago. rststF.t.?The manufacturing department continues in i very languid state. At this season of the year, it is so ven in ordinary circumstances, and, on this account, ware it not for the large number of unemployed hands, would not excite much uneasiness. Wc are at present in he transition state between the spring and autumn trsile, ind the preparations for the latter, though progressing <re scarcely forward enough to admit of taking on new weavers. Afew ofthe principal houses ?indeed there srlow but few comparatively altogcthei ?have been engaging hands for the last eight or ten days, but it is to a small extent, and the number engaged w ill not much exceed the number thrownifrom kind of work now over for a sramnn. During the present month there is a prospect hv several nouses of taking on a considerable number of hands, in preparation lor thu demand for goods usually made from \ugust onwards, and this prospect is rather brightened by I he circumstance that the stock of goods, both in the hands if manufacturers and merchants, is small. Hatri:, June 30.?Cottons?Considerable octiuty has continued to pervade our market throughout the whole of the week, and the transactions have been on a still more restricted scale, than noticed at the close of our preceding circular. The further addition to our stock has contributed in some degree to the present depression, and although prices had not hitherto undergone any decided unfavorable change, the demand has been of such a limited nature, that holders, in order to realize, have at last been obliged to yield to a decline of f.3a3 on ordinnry and interior, and f.l on middling United States desenptions. tint since ths receipt of advices to 7th inst. from the other <ide of the Atlantic, which reached us last Saturday by he British Queen steamer, rather more firmness ha* been exhibited, as the shipping season is now nearly brought o a close, and it seems tone generally admitted, that the imount of crop will turn out somewhat below the com utod estimate. Within the last two days some inquiry las been manifested for consumption, hut there appear* to disposition oil the part of sellers to press forw ard tco agerly, nor to submit to any further depreciation, not| withstanding the absence of buyers for transit, and all I want of speculative feeling. No revival of importance an, however, be expected duringthe electioneering peiod, which is fast approaching, and the uncertainty as to its results, added to the inauspicious character of the inelligence from England, will most probably for a time act as a eheck on commercial operations. During the present month, the imports have amounted to 43,380 bales, ind the outgoings to 33,380 halea. We now refer to the ubjoined table, showing the movement in our port, for he hall'year mding this day, contrasted with former years.

Price 6^ cents fjrj- The Sitnday Herald of to-morrow, will contain its usual variety of interesting and important information from all parts of the world. Price only two cants. Office corner of Fulton and Nassau streets. Tlu Foreign News. Wre received the highly important news brought by the Acadia yesterday morning at half past 3 o'clock in advance of all our cotemporanes. For this we are indebted to the enterprise of Harnden and the Captain of the Albany^boat. The news is very important. The treaty with Texas?the sickness of Sir Robert Peel?his quarrels with the Tories?the precarious state of Louis Philippe?the successes of the British in India and China?the fitting out of dozens of vessels of war? the passage of ihe new tariff in France and England, and oth'-r matters, render this the most important news we have had for a long time. Read, learn, digest it thoroughly, and be wise. Highly I-mcortamt krom the Mormon Cotnrntv. ?War in tub tar West.?Late lust evening we received despatches from the Mormon country, with further most astounding disclosures, which lead us to believe that an insurrection or civil war will be the immediate result in the State of Illinois and along the Mississippi, where the Mormons reside. We have two more letters from General John Cook Bennett, with astounding disclosures of the Mormons?and more from Prophet Joe Smith, showing up Bennett. They are extremely rich. The "Sunday Herald" to-morrow, will contain the whole of these curious particulars. Latest from Vexezckla and New Grenada.? We have the Venezolano, a Caracas Journal, to the 14th of June. The condition of commerce and business is truly lamentable. A new revolt has taken place in Cienega. Obando was advancing with a few troops, which he had picked up in Ecuador, towards New Grenada, with a view of fomenting an insurrection on the coast of the Pacific. Arrivals.?We observe in the city, at the American, the Hon. Mr. McKennan, Hon. Mr. Forster, Hon. Mr. Colquit of Congress, and Mr. Milliard of Alabama, the new Minister to Belgium. The visit, era from the south are coming in very slowly; very few families south of Philadelphia are about visiting our watering places this summer; they defer their visits this year until the fall. Ili: ffians,Pickpockets and Loafers.?The feeble ness of our police, its total want of energy and activity, arising from its miserable organization, is causing our city to be filled with loafers and beggars. The weakness of the police emboldens the ruffian and pickpocket, who now assemble by night and day at all the most frequented places in our city; here they contrive to get up sham fights for the purpose of crowding the population and picking pockets. The first ward is filled with sturdy beggars, who sleep nightly on the Battery. The I'UUIIV. IIUU2II. Hit, iioivi, IIIC Vll> llUltl, JIXvTt UIU c, the American Hotel, are constantly infested with beggars. In 6hort, the citizens are alarmed at all these things, and justly complain that the police do not do their duty to the city. Foreiun News.?We are under many obligations to the enterprising Harnden A: Co. for the early delivery of the foreign news brought by the Asadia. Harnden sent an express by the way of Hudson, which reached here in the North America at a little before four o'clock, yesterday morning. We are also indebted to Adams Ar Co., and the officers oi the News Koom for their attention on this occasion. Naval.?The brigantine and three schooners which sailed.from Indian Key on the 10th inst. arrived at Norfolk on the 18th inst., and anchored ofl the Naval Hospital. They are, schr. Flirt, Lieut. Com. McLaughlin, senior officer of the squadron; tirigantine Jefferson, Lt. Com. John Hodgers; schr. Van Buren, 'Lt. Com. Marchand; schr. Madison, Lt. Com. Ileindon. The tichrs. Wave and Phenix remain at the station. The U. S. steam frigate Missouri, Capt. Newton, left Norfolk on the 19th for New-York. The U. S. brigantine Boxer, often gun?, Lt. Bul'us, from Santa Martha, arrived at Port Royal on the '23d ult. Frigate Columbia, Captain Shubriek, went to iea yesterday morning from the Lower Bay for Rio Je Janeiro. Steam tiiis Mo.vrii.?The British Queen is the next steamer due. She left Antwerp on the 7th. tnd Southampton, England, on the 10th instant: tnd is, therefore, out thirteen days this noon from the latter [tort. We may look for her on Monday wtth certainty almost. The Great Western comes next. She is out one week to-day. Then follows the Columbia with advices down tc the 19th instant. Politics in Massachusetts.?All but six towni in the ninth District are heard from. Now the vote stands?Democratic, 2054?Whig, 2053?Abolition dot). This shows a change in faver of the locofocoi of over two thousand votes. Another Marine Curiosity.?Wc learn the fol lowing particulars ofa cock boat from Captain Crane of the Emily, arrived. The English sloop Blackbird, 14 de.ys from Ber muda, with onions, was at St. Thomas on the lltl inst. The B. is a sloop of only four tons, navigatet by the captain and one man. They experience* very bad weather all the passage, the captain hav lllff hppfl wnellpfi nvfrKnor^ Tlin ulrwvrt 1*uLrot badly, which required the man at ibe pump most o the time. The Cai>tain was a man 60 years of age We believe this to be the smallest vessel that eve floated to the West Indies. It is to be recollected that Captain Crane onn crowed the Atlantic from Englajid in a little iroi steamer of eighty tons burthen. Car Stone.?This morning, ut 6 o'clock, the cai stone is to be placed on the HunUer Hill monument two hundred and twenty feet fr om its base. So thi splendid obelisk is finished at leist. The Rev.

Chatham Th* ure.?'Thome having returnet rom the country and resumed the management he (campaign op. ens fresh, like a northeaster. It hat >e, n "ontemnlo led to close the house for a short pe od in order to complete the decorations, but owini o the admirahje plan adopted and the vigor of it xrctition, the whole will be done without interrupt ug the performances.

All the ar ingements are on n scale every way worthy o Thome's high reputauo^ i as % manager ^ wi^ * City Intelligence. An iHfottAKT iMrtortMK?T is called for by the Corporation, connected with the administration oi juitice at Blackwell's laland, which it i? to be sincerely hoped will ' be adopted a? loon aa practicable, and which we regret '.hat the Mayor did not call public attention to in that part of hia message i elating to the combined erili ' of the present Police system. We allude to the ne. v esslty of providing a suitable place at the Ferry, loot oi olst street, within the control of the city, to land and se. cure prisoners while waiting for the passage of the boat ( across the stream, as also to shelter the sick and those af- [( dieted with contagious and infectious diseases. Public j policy and humanity prompt such a course, as the Corpo- ( ration are now merely on suSsrance, and allowed the use of a landing through the publie spirit of the owners of H ihe adjacent property. We earnestly call the attention ! of the already efficient Committee* on Watch, Police, and Prisons, and Charity, and Alma Houae, to thia important ' subject, the necessity of w hich will be readily perceived > by a visit to the plsce alluded to. Thia matter waa be- 1 fore the last Common Council, but by some undue influence, beyond our ken, no detinue action was ever pro- \ duced. At that time the following certificate was pro- , t tented to the Committee on Charity} and Alms House, to ' s whom the subject had been referred " The subject of providing on this side of the river, at , the ferry to P-lackwell's IsUnd, proper meant lor the seeu- | rity of prisoners, as well as suitable accommodations lor j < the sick and others, who are under the necessity of being i ( transported to the island, lieing now before the committee on Charity and Alms House for their consideration, we l deem it our duty at public officers to urge on the commit- i tee and on the Common Council the necessity of providing , such accommodations as well lor security and protection, as to preveut the too open palpable intercourse now exist- | ing between the prisoners on the island and their associates . in the city, which at present, bailies the best eilorti of the ; } keepers, and of the police.

Clerk of Sessions, 4"c-" i Moke or the Habeas.?On Thursday, a man named 1 Jerry McDonald was arrested by otlicer Stokely on strong suspicions of being concerned in a recent burglary, and , although there were two additional complaints agaiust < . him for assault and battery, he was taken out of prison iD less than half an hour after commitment, on a writ of habeas corpus, and admitted to bail by Judge Lynch. This daily, we might almost say hourly, discharge of prisoners by the Judges of the Sessions, when many of the facts aud ' I circumstances of arrest and commitment arc not before ! I them, is calculated to prevent that due administration of i , justice that is so necessary in these days of rascality. The ; < writ of habeas corpus was never instituted for such pur- , 1 poses, and it never should be resorted to except in cases ' where the public interest or private rights are endanger- : ed. The daily application cf this writ in cases of notori- ; I ous burglars, thieves, and pickpockets, is a mockery of . its virtue, and should be frowned down by the public. | | Afflicti.nu Accident.?Yesterday morning as Anson I . O. rhelps James, grandson of Anson G. Phelps, and son of j Mr. James, who is absent with his lady in Europe, was re- I turning lrom the city to the residence of his grandfather in a carriage accompanied by the colored coachman Jo- j nathan Brown the latter stopped the horse at Nelson's . blacksmith shop near the corner of 39th street and Third , avenue, to enquire relative to the carriage lamps, and left , 1 the youth above named, aged about 13 yearn, sitting upon ' the front seat with the line* in his hand. The horse start- 1 1 ed suddenly, ran oft at full speed and when turning the 1 corner of the Third avenue and 25th street the waggon was capsized and the boy thrown out with such force as to cause the fracture of the skull and almost instant t death. Dr. Vache, was passing in the immediate vicinity 1 at the time, and raised the interesting youth from the ' ground in his arms, but his skill was of no avail, as death ensued almost immediately afterwards. I The Recent Counterfeits.?The publication yester- > I day in the Herald of the arrest of the gang of counterfeit- , era, brought forth a large number of persons who had re- , ceived the spurious $5 notes of the Tolland County and f 3 i of the Greenwich banks in payment for goods purchased. . j In the course of the day Honora Shepherd, the wife of one j ( I of the Shepherd gang, now in prison in Trenton for pass| ing counterfeit money; Peter O'Brien, her brother, and | Charles Shepherd, were recognized as having passed these | counterfeit bills, and we trust that evidence sufficient 1 . i will be secured to send all arrested to the State prisonft| Let every person who has ben defrauded come forward ' and recognize them. Another of the gang, who says her \ ' name is Elizabeth llennessv, was also committed yester- i : day in company with Ann McCiiunity of No. 8 Hester ' ! street, with whom she lived, and to whom she gave one of J thenotesto get changed, and which was passed upon Mr. i Barney, grocer, corner of Division and Suffolk street. 1 The Grant. Procession for the introduction of theCro- ' , ton water wiil take place about the 1st of the ensuing 1 month. Great preparations are maing for this important era, particularly by the Fire Department, who intend to surprise even the New Yorkers, who are rarely surprised at any thing. Fiaa.? The alarm in the second district yesterday proceeded from the partial burning of Prout's Ink Manufac- j 1 tory in Prince street, between Elm and Crosby. The pre. ' ' misci were not much damaged. The alarm at eleven o'clock, in the fifth diitrict, pro , ceedod from the burning of the sales room of Bolen & Parks, stationers, 107 John street, near Pearl. Smoke wa- ! i seen issuing from the door and windows, and on th store , being entered by the insurance firemen, flames were dis- ! covered proaBeding from one of the upper shelves, on j , which were placed a number of boxes of wafers. The fire was extinguished by a bucket ot water. The oceu. pants were fully Insured, and the cause of the ignition of ' the fire is unknown. From the manner in which the , City Hall bell was ruag, it was almost impossible to tell j ( whether the fire was in the fifth or the first district. Ring 1 slower, you new comers, when the fire is down town. ! A Monster in Human Siiaee.?A brntn in the shape , ' of a man, named Jacob Cochran,{who resides in Centr* ' street, while in a state of intoxication yesterday, threw one of his own children, an infant about 18 months of age, from the second story window of the dwelling in which he resides and fiaclured one of the little innocent's legs, . and otherwise so injured it that its life was despaired ol j , last evening. He was committed for examination. I , Ned Piter Drowned?A well known genius of the ' colored species, named Edward Piper, one of the Catha- ' rine market fish boys, was found drowned at the slip near . 1 the*mark?'t yesterday morning. The evening previous 1 about 11 o'clock, Mr. James Wade heard a person fall into j the water at the end of the slip, and immediately ran to the ' wharf to rescue him, but arrived too late to accompliih 1 - hii purpose. The eoronerheld an inquest on the lardy, ' i and the jury returned a verdict of accidental drowning.

Not relishing this ad- i vice, he pounced upon Joseph like a hawk upon a June ' hug, and down went officer and up went Lawson, until I the war raged so violently that Joseph, like hi* uamesake I of old. left a part of one or hfa garments on the field of hat- | i ile but secured his man, who was landed in the Tomb* to < | cool himself off in aspac* of eight leet by four.

In the Senate the Commerce and Navigation re>ort from the Treasury iJepartment for the year 1841 vas presented and the usual extra number ordered o be printed. Mr. Calhot*n presented a free trade memorial roin Middlesex, Virginia, and sent to the chair a etter written by Gen.

Mr. Calhoun said it was certain hat the compromise act, after this explicit and sormn declaration of Gen. Harrison, could not have ?een disturbed, had he lived. The President had tcted on tliia question, to say nothing ot any other, recisely as Gen. Harrison would have acted.
