By this vessel we have private intelligence, and private correspondence, from Vera Cruz and Mexico, of the highest importance to Texas, and the future destiny of that country. | We have now certain and positive information, on which we can rely, that the Mexican government, or rather Santa Anna, will soon invade Texas, if she is not already invaded, by a large army and navy, both by sea and laud?the army to be led ou by British officers?and rhe navy by the same. The Mexican fleet already numbers three iron steamers, two gun brigs, and titree schooners. The iollowing is a letter:? [Correspondence o( the Herald.] Vera Critz, Sept. 16, 1842. To ihk Eoiion ov the New York Herald. I have just recei red the annexed statement from one of the crew ot the Guadaloupe, the war steamer arrived from England. "1 shipped on board the steam frigate Guadaloupe, Capl. E. Charlewood, at Liverpool, at the close of .Tune last, as I thought lor China. The number of crew was then eighty-six, including engineers, liremen, Arc. The day before the sieauier left Liverpool, we were all called aft, when Capt. Charlewood read a written agreement, without a stamp, and drawn up by himself, ft -ttcited thai he wished all hands to go with him?that he was ignorant of the destination of the ship?and iliat we must ask no questions. We were to rereive Ju'-i per month as wages?warrant and petty officers rated according to rank. We sailed Ironi Liverjiool on the 4th of July. Two days itter, I noticed in the Liverpool Mail, of the 2nd, that the rfuadalouoe had cleared lor Corunna. Ou the 7th, we called ut Cork. Or ders were then sent on board for the captain to go ..shore and report the ship immediately. He thereupon piled on sail and put on steam, and we soon left old Ireland in the rear. On the 15th we touched at Fanchal, took in coals, and left on the 18th? Shortly after, the Captain ordered the boatswain to pipe all hands to quarters. We were arranged on both sides of the deck. Captain C., then said? Well, men, it is my intention to inform you what my business is. I was ordered not to tell you before I am bound to Vera Cruz in Mexico. That place is blockaded by a set ol half-bred Yankees, who call themselves Texians. 1 am determined to break myself through. I atn well convinced that you are all a set of picked men. We have a good ship?with 2-<>8 pivots, and we shall no doubt take plenty of prizes.' "Two (lays after we saw the Mexican colors on board, much to our surprise. From that day we were constantly drilled at the big guns and small arms. It was laughable to see the firemen, all eo very green, handling the niusketa. We were piped to quarters whenever a veseel hove in sight. On the 26th of August we reached Vera Cruz. On the 2Dth all hands manned the yards and saluted the Governor. We were then piped to quarters, and Captain C. again spoke :?" Well, men, I wish to inform you that this ship is going to exchange digs, that ot Mexico will be hoisted tomorrow morning. If any of you have anything to say. now is your time. Hereafter you must hold eour tongues " Several declined serving under the Mexican dag. and wished to leave. Four were permuted to 'go- The others were told that they must remain, as the Mexican Government were anxious for English sailors?so much so, indeed, that the wages ot the warrant officers were raised We were then informed that Captain C. would receive ?450 per month, the first lieutenant,G. Wright. 3150, Doctor Clemeneou ?150, under purser and clerk cacti ?150; and, after the capture ol Texas, the? are to receive three hundred dollars, to pay dieir passage liotne?and poor Jack but ?25. A.I those who should lose an arm, .n eye, or a leg, were to receive CtiO, and j?30 for n finger, a toe, or for any scar. This is a list of prices adopted by Santa Anna. He lost a leg, which was probably worth no more than Hence the list Three men refused to comply with these regulations and serve in the steamer They were consequently thrown into prison and confined three days without any food The British Consul refused to offer them any aid.'' If these men should fall what will become of their poor wives and families f Will they get any money 1 So thoughts of this enter the minds of the Mexicans. All they care tor is the taking of Texas a six months, wuh a fleet of three steamers,, one IS gun brig, one ID gun brig, and three schooners. This expedition, ii will be i>erceived, was organised in London, under the pa'ronage ot the Mexican merchant* and landholders in that quarter. The lorce alicidy in nio'ion will be sufficient to overwhe'm Texas, and to drive every Texian out ol that smiling land. The Textan navy, at the 1 tt-t account?, wat laid up and useless, for want ot fund*. The Mexican navy is in lull force?with irtrec iron fteainers and plenty of men and am munition to cn-operate with their army. We exited that a decisive blow will soon be levelled at fh* independence of Texas. The arrival of Col llmonte, as Mexican minister in this country, is pri-hnhly intended to preserve the peace of the United Statesof the north and Mexico. Almonte is a man of superior talents, great address, perfectly acquainted with our language and institutions. The British ascendancy in Mexico is now complete. I nlejs the French and American governments interfere, the existence of Texas as a nation t? gone for ever. Nothing can save the new republic, but such mi intervention. Will it be extended to the Anglo Faxon raee in Texas I We'll see. On the whole, we begin to see -ome mighty results glow logout of this new invasion of Texas. Will t not lead to h union between France and the '"nit'-d States to prevent England and Mextc* from Is Dying an independent republic on this continent!

Mr. Parmlee, the government agent, has been as far as St. John's to see about this. He discovered that a good many horses had been smuggled over, and also found out that a large number of asses had passed that way during the summer, and both statements are probably true. Universal Clemency of Governor Skward.? This is the "era of good feelings'^ caused by the Croton water. Governor Seward promises to be the most bevevolent man of the age. We hear that petitions, praying for a general pardon to all offenders, will be got up?and hopes are entertained that he will grant a general and universal amnesty. There are now in prison, several persons convicted of various offences?one for murder, one for forgery?many to be tried?besides several hundred thieves in the State prisons. Let the amiable Governor, before he goes out of office, grant a general amnesty for all offences, as a fit accompaniment to the bankrupt law and the introduction of the Croton water. Let Auburn," Sing Sing, and Blackwell's Island be emptied?swept clean?whitewashed?and let out to new tenants.

There, now, young lady, don't faint. The Bowery and Celeste-?Celeste's engagement closed at the Bowery on Saturday night. Her engagement has been tolerable, but not what it ought to have been. It presented a struggle, from the jump, between the popularity and great talent of the actress, and the bad reputation and worse management of the theatre. None but Celeste could have maintained the struggle and brought any houses. The Bowery has been so unpopular, so badly managed, so characterless of late years, that it would swaiup'Garriek himself, if he were to rise from the dead and play Richard there The proceeds last week were small. The Bowery will now return to old prices and oblivion. Feace to its manes.

Some allowance must be made for the above, and also for the following, which we take from the Columbus Statesman, democratic, of the 11th inat , the day of the election :? A few townships in Clark county show a gain of about 200 for Shannon over 1840 Two townships in Licking county are reported to have done as well on Governor as in 1838?these, too, front the supiiosed infected district * Eight townships in Muskingum county, says a note on the way-bill, gives Cor win 750 majority?about as in 1810.

Mcsjcai. Treat.?It will be seen by the advers tisemenf that the Messrs Ratner have combined y with Mr Dempster to sing to-night at the Society r Library, and also to-morrow , at the Rutgers Insti 1 ujie Fifteenth Annuel Fair of the American 1 atltatc At Slblo'i CiarAen?1H44. As yesterday w<ts a diet iwn with the Fair at Niblo's, we, of course have nothing to report this morning. We, therefore, take this opportunity to say, that the great absorbing topic of all minds now is tlio Nautical exhibitions to-morrow, for which the Institute are going to a very heavy expense. For full particulars see the advertisement in another column Professor Morse will perform a highly interesting and scientific ex|>eriment with his Electro Magnetic Telegraph, by which a correspondence will be carried on between Castle Garden and Governor's Island. The great feature of the day will be the blowing up bv Mr Colt of a vessel of nearly 300 ton*, which is five times larger than either of those blown up before. This part of the exhibition is made at the request, and also at the expense of the American Institute; although Messrs French and Heiaer will share with them the proceeds of the garden on that day. The Institute applied to Mr. Secretary Upshur to bear the expense ol the exhibition, out of the $15,000 which it will be recollected, has been appropriated by act of Congress to test by ex|>eriments the ability of Colt's submarine battery for coast and harboi defence. To this the Secretary replied, that he had no authority to make such an appropriation in behalf of any private society. The Institute, therefore, proceed on their, own account. The vessel will be located between the North Carolina and the Garden, where the best view can be k?,l M. C-l. 1. , mualt ....II k- .... kn..J tl.? V..rlll Carolina with his apparatus; and the explosion will take place precisely at twelve o'clock, M., to a se cond. The experiment to-morrow is the only one that will be performed in New York harbor, as we are informed by Mr Colt. The public can therefore visit the Garden and see for themselves. As there are a great many conflicting opinions respecting the originality and merits of Colt's submarineTjattery, we have taken considerable pains to ascertain from private conversation with Mr. Colt? and will now state for the information of (he public ?what are his claims for his sub-marine battery. He claims, then, to be able to destroy any vessel within sight of hisown position,even at the distance of forty miles, wherever she may be, and whatever may be her size. That he can destroy any number of shine in the most rapid succession, or all at once, e ven De they the combined fleets of all Europe, provided they he any where within the above stated purview. That he can pick out one vessel, and leave another; destroy this and save that, at pleasure ; if he can see the difference between them, he can produce the difference in his results. That he can destroy the largest class Bhips of war with ease and safety to himself, when in motion passing in or out of harbor, without the necessity of approach within reach of shot from the largest guns of the largest calibre. He intimates, therefore, that the idea of raking a channel?of powder being deposited under the vessel?of wires to be torn up, &c.,&c., are all chimeras of other people. The moment the vessel is wuhin his sight, he claims her as his own, to save or to destroy. We have thus fairly and correctly stated Mr. Colt's claims; of their validity or futility the public can judge as well as we. Seci'rity against Explosions.?Our attention has been called several times to a new invention now exhibiting in the machine room at the fair, called Raub's double self-acting safety valves, to prevent explosion in steam boilers. Not being a judge of this machine ourselves, we will give one or two extracts from letters to Mr. Samuel Raub, Jr., the patentee. Those, interested will give it a careful examination:? Nkw Yorl, Sept. 7,1842. ****** Your "Double Self-acting Safety Valves," 1 consider the most important discovery that has been made since the application of steam to purposes of trade and navigation, as you have, in your own simple but strong language rendered " the use of steam as harmless as foe lied of down." * * * * Your " Double SelfActing Safety Valves" ire the only certain remedy that I have yet seen for the detection and prevention of this great evil. ???! consider your " Valves" the long sought desideratum, and having thoroughly tested them, since they have been applied to tbe boilers of the South America, of the People's line, I cannot hesitate to recom menu tneir general adoption. ? ? ? * ? Having become satisfied of the above facts, from personal olwerva. tion and practical experiment on boarl the South America, I close by giving my opinion that the safety of life and security or property demands that they should be brought into general use, as without them we are not safe in either, while with them 1 conceive it almost Impossible that explosions should occur, except through intention or gross neglect, which could not. without greatly outraging the feelings of humanitv, be attributed to any indivinual, whose life was also at stake. GEORGE HAWE8, Chief Engineer of the steamer South America. 1 fully concur in the above opinions expressed by Mr. Hswes. THOMAS ROCKEFELLER, Second Engineer of the Steamer South America. Nr.* Yona, Sept. 10, IMS. Dkab Sis,?I am highly gratified in being able to give my unqualified approbation to your " Double Sell-Acting Safety Valves." They are, in my opinion, the one thing needful to put steam under the complete control of man. * * I have no hesitation in declaring it my firm conviction that no boilor is really secure without your safety valves, and that public safety demands that all boilers should be equipped with them, especially thoaeused in propelling vessels. You have my beat wishes for your entite success, and the general adoption of your Valves. WILLIAM A. LIGHTHALL, Chief Engineer of the steamer Troy. To Samuel Raub, Jr, Present. Tub Cattlb Show.?Our readers understand that the American Institute are this week to open their annual cattle show at the corner ot 18th street and Broadway. The exhibition will open on Wednesday next at 9 o'clock. The Committee of the Agricultural department have taken great pains in preparing the yard, and been at heavy expense, and we run no risk in say ing, that on no occasion has this city ever been called to look at such a collection ot line improved blood animals. The herds of Messrs. Gibbons, Poole, Prentiss, Tonkin, Whitney, Watson, Vail, Hilhouse, Corning, Sothani. Clark, Hall, Townsend, Bust and Sherwood, will be represented, and several others ot equal celebrity. Good old Connecticut has sent down noble specimens of working oxen, and Hambden, Guildlord, and New Haven are all on the ground. We were delighted with their appearance at New Haven a few days ago. The horses, sheep, and pigs, are to be here in strong force, ana we hope that the beautiful and amiable swine may have tneir merits fully recognised by their patron saint at Worcester, wno we hone will be here. Mrs. Suitor's Conckri Cto-morrow evening).? The return of this charming vocalist, after so long an absence, will, we feel assured, he hailed by a crowded auditory. Mrs. Sutton's musical career, since she left us, has been unusually triumphant, and her reception from the Havana, throughout her tour, has been enthusiastic. Mrs Sutton ranked, prior to her departure, as superior to any vocalist now among us. The programme is rich in musical gems- By Mrs. S. the beautiful " Pair de niobe," and the grand aria from Uppermestra, by Mercadante, nnd two Duetto's Buffo, with Signor De Begm*, one, of which, "nella casa," was received with such immense applause at their concert last fall, and the other a novelty which will eclipse even the former. Mrs. S. sings, as well, a splendid aria Irom the " Schiave Bagdad," with violin obligato, by Mr. Chatel, who has not appeared since his successful debut at the Park, last winter. Mr. Kosaowkt plays two of liia tine pieces, and Monsieur f'hatel a solo, and last, though not least, the first appearance in New York, of Miss Emilias Sutton, not yet seven years old, whose performance* are s|?oken of by the press, where rhc has sung, as being truly astonishing.

Assistant Alderman Nash was sent for; and upon opening the store two boys were fcund secreted on the premises, who had made their entrance through a rear window. Upou examination of the premises it was found that failing to break opeu the iron chest.they had attempted to force off the lock by pouring gun powder into it and exploding it. The young rngues gave their names as James Hughes and John Clark, and upon searching them a box of locofoco matches was fonnd, a number of keys, a candle and a small package of powder. They were fully committed and have been arrested once before on a similar charge, but were released for want of proof.

(a- TO ALL THE WORLD WHO USE LEATHER IN ANY FORM?Oil of Tannin, or Leather Restorer, a new Chemical Discovery. Moat people know that skins and hides are converted into leather by the use of Tannin extracted from certain barks, Ac. When the force and strength of the Tannin is worn out, leather becomes dead, hard, dry, brittle, cracked, covered with a crust, Ac. This all know. To restore then life, soltness, moistness, strength, smoothness, and remove all crust, By, or blister?restore the tannin. This substance the leather never can receive the second time?but the whole v irtues of it are in this article, the Oil of Tannin? which penetrates the stifiest and hardest leather, if it has been twenty years in use ; and il it tears easily with the fingers, it imparts at once a strength that is utterly incredible until seen. It becomes like new leather, in all respects, with a delightful soltness and polish, and makes all leather completely and perfectly impervious to water ? particularly boots,'shoes, carriage tops, harness, hose, trunks, and in lact all thiugs made ot leather, giving a splendid poiish, even higher than new leather has, and at least doubling its wear and durability, in whatever manner the leather is used. These are facts. and not finding it so, shall have bis money again. Hemember that tnis is serious and true. W? have to say it, for we would net er have believed the wonderful effects of this oil upon leather without seeing it, and we ash not for the credulity of the community till they havu seen, and then, we know that they must know these to be facta. Directions for use, with each bottle. Patent leather and its polish restored by this oil. Corns cannot long exist where this is used for boots and shoes, it keeps the leather so soft. Leather cannot decay, or crack, mould, or blister, during the common age of man, so far as we can judge by experience, if this oil is proper.y used. Ladies' shoes, of the finest kinds, are beautified and rendered water:proof by it; and so are the shoes or boots of all others who use it. Banish then, all India rubber, or other overshoes, and use this oil. The proprietors will warrant, that if leather is first soaked in this oil, and then made into a boot, and that boot sunk three months in water, not one drop of wet or moisture can ever enter the boot, unless it runs over the top ! and such a boot shall wear double the time of its mate that is not so prepared. Now, if these things are true, the discovery is of infinite value to the world. If it is not true, it is the easiest thing in the world to prove it, without cost. Who then will refuse a trial 1 Those who will may wear old shoes, groan with corns, ride with old carriage-tops?have old harness, and throw them away half used?look filthy themselves, and all about them?expend double what is necessary for articles of leather, to their hearts' content, for what we' their prejudices are so strong, they will not try a new discovery.

WRIGHT'S INDIAN VEGETABLE PILLS are a purgative medicine so justly balanced, and withal so natural to the human constitution, that they cannot possibly injure even the most delicate; at the same time, if used in suck a manner as to produce free evacuations by the bowels, it is absolutely impossible for pain or distress of any kind to continue long in the body. In all disordered motions of the blood, called intermittent, remittent, nervous, inflammatory, and putrid fevers, Wright's Indian Vegetable Pills will be found a certain remedy, because they cleanse the stomach and bowels of all bilious matter, and purlfV the blood; consequently they remove the cause of every kind of disease?they are absolutely certain to cure every kind of fever.

We mentioned on a recent occasion that the city of St. Louis, had outstanding a large amount, say $'160,000 of city shinplasters, which they forced upon their creditors to circulate as mouev. This fraudulent nsner has itmrs. ciated in thr hands of the public 30 per cent, yet the city authorities have refuted to part with any ol ita property in order to redeem theae promitea. An ordinance haa, however, been enacte I which provides for the funding of the scrip in sums of $100, in bonds bearing 10 per cent. inter est, to be issued in three classes ol $00,000 each, payable in three, four and five years?the interest payable semi annually in St. Louis and New York, in specie. This ia all very w ell. The next queation is, has the city the. means of paying 10 per cent, interest 7 The tame law which authorizes this funding scheme restricts the annual expenses of the city to $36,000. The income of the city is less than $30,000. Where the funds are to oome from to pay the interest and principal ia not so readily explained, but ia very necessary to the credit of the bonds. In relation to the affairs of Illinois, Governor Carlin, in a lata Executive Circular, aays " The reduction of some salaries, the curtailment of expenses, together with the large amount of additional lands which have become taxable this year, will justify a large reduction of taxes, and have ample means to carry on the government on a system of strict economy ; and until we get through the present crisis it will hardly be in our power to collect reve, nue to pay any portion of our public debt."

Skinner, of the tirm of Stanley, Reed It Co. James Hunnewell, the vice president o( the Bank, charging Wy. man and Brown with having embezzled and feloniously stolen the sum of $300,000 from the bank. Secondly, he charges Skinner with having received the $800,000 from W. liB., knowing the same to have been embezzled and stolen. Thirdly, he charges all three with a conspiracy to defraud and cheat the stockholders of the bank, as aforesaid. And to these several complaints, the defendsnts pleaded " not guilty." This is the proper method ot dealing with paper money rogues. In the course of the examination the fact was developeJ, that these parties were concerned with Blanc hard and Odiorne, the two Boston Bank tellsrs, wko were prosecuted last year, for frauds connected with .a broker's house in Wall street. It appeared that from these people Wymau obtained the funds to pay a dividend of the Fh? nix Bauk, in order to keep up appearances, in the same manner that the late National Bank deceptively paid two dividends on the stock of the State of Mississippi, in London, representing that the Bute had paid in order " to sustain confidence," and cheat innocent people into buying a wgrvuiCHiiocK< The detail* of the late tariff continue to occupy the attention of the mercantile cla**ei, and generally peaking the conclusion come to respecting ita practical, working, is not at all favorable. We cannot see any very cogent reason, however, lor taking a desponding view of the subject. It has been laid down as an axiom in finance that nothing can prevent the smuggler stepping in as the corrector of extravagantly high duties, even under the most despotic governments, and that Congress have committed an egregious error in this respect with many articles of the tariff, doe* not admit of a question. The result is, how ever, palpable and obvious at once to all persons conversant with the trade of the United States with Oreat Britain. The moment it is found that it will be more profits ble to take the risk of entering by the Canadian frontier ^^B than by the Custom House of New. York, goods will be ^^B shipped for Quebec, New Brunswick, kc. nearly as openly for the merchants in the eastern towns of the States, as if the trade were direct. It is utterly impossible to guard a ^^B frontier extending 1200 or latO miles with a population on loth sides of the line interested in affording ovary facility to the contraband trade. Every person acquainted with ^^m the practical effect of tbe'former high tariff on the Cana- ^^m dian line, is aware that the bulk of the article was no aeentity whatever against smuggling, and there Is no reason to believe that the populace have become more virtuous and patriotic than they were ten or twelve years ago. The best judges are, therefore, decidedly of opinion that supposing the southern and w estern States were to submit to the present tariff remaining permanasit, a case by the way altogether improbable, the object for which it is impoeed would roost certainly be defeated. It will neithrr answer the purpose as a question of revenue, nor as a protection fo manufacture* in competition with the old settled countrie* of Europe.
