The recent treaty between England and the nited States has settled their |>riiic*i|>rtI |>olitic*l ind territorial dillereneea?hut new movements art legmning to show themselves, which will lead to h ong and protracted struggle between interests ?>l he most original characters that ever took place between two countries. tTuis struggle will he for the tloating specie of the >m crcial world?and the two contending eleents will he tlir> I'.inlt lit KitvlanH on one -1 lit*. Mild tie new American commercial sysiem, founded on ash principles, on the other side. This is a war ol ommercial and monetary principles?and the consquences may be, in a few brief yean?, ilie tall of tie Hank of England, a revulsion in her ntanuicturiug system?an insurrection in her masses? nd a total revolution in lier government. The I'nited State- .ire now on the threshold ol a ew series of commercial, financial and political vents, that will shake the old world to the centre. I'Midon and Paris had better look out. Mexico ann Tkxas?We have had nothing new out this part of the world, since the arrival ol the lenrielia al Now Orleans, whose news to the Xth ol cto'ier we published a lew days since. The second general invasion of Texas by the Mrx:au army will be a very serious affair, before the l< xieans are again driven out of Texas. Already XI Texians have been killed, and about double that umber of Mexicans. Yet there has been no enigement between the hostile forces on this ticeaon that could he dignified with the name of a fight -nothing but skirmishes. They have had the efct, however, of keeping the Mexicans in check, ui when the remainder of the Mexican forces, mounting probably to 15,000 men, enter Texas in iree divisions, as they will do, and the powerful ?et of Mexico blockades and bombards the ports Texas, the " lone star" republic will have very nigh work of it. That she will ultimately triumj^i over the Mexi ms we do tint lor .t moment doubt; but to do this ie must have assistance, in some shape, from the nited States If not men, she certainly must have ovisiona, arms, and munitions ol war. We very ucli doubt whether there can he found lighting men lough now in Texas to beat back the large force Inch Mexico is about to bring against her. Ami e shameful manner in which the recent volunteers Dili the I'nited Slates have been treated by the ithorities in Texas, readers it very doubtful whethshe will have much more assistance in that way. rvertheless, if matters were to grow des|>erHte, (I the Texians were to he driven this side the 'azos, we think perhaps that numbers of gallant irits would rush in there from the Southern and rath Western Slates; in which event the Mexicans so Id be driven out of the country in three weeks, ith great slaughter. In the meantime our < 'overtirntnt has offered to ediate between the two countries, and we think teat Britain ought also to offer her services for e same object. Almonte, the Mexican AmbasJor, has been presented to the President. * From letters received from the western part ol rxas, it seems the late expedition of the Mexicans linst San Antonio, is not of the general character i,i Ned?a general invasion ? hut the work of John legume, the traitor, who, it appears, had m*rtjed his landed property near San Antonio, to Col. ;de i, lorm-rlv a in reliant of Bexar, as security about SIO.lMNf worth of merchandize purchased him SH.Miine, it will be remembered, on hisexfiiiontothe KioGr nde with his merchandize, is robbed I>v the Mexicans?returned to San Anno?i.iised a p irty, and, in retaliation, robbed a rty of Mexican traders, on the Texas side of the o Grande. The au.hoiities of Texas not sancnini this jobbery hv Seguine, he deserted the nntry with his followers from San Antonio, and ne.f Vasquez and his party. Now the court, lich was in m*s:jon at Bexar, when this last expeion ol ihe.Mexicins surprised them, would have tided a suit which Colnnel Ogden had instituted lin-t Seguine, and Seguine knowing this, was in iimentat in raising tins last expedition tor the |)n-e ol capturing and carrying off the archives I Bexar county, in which he succeeded, and has 0 taken Col. Ogden among the prisoners caped. There is little hope tor the lite of Col. Oj11 in the hands of this iruitor. Dr. Sim titers Hiid lerswhoin he hadsliot, are supposed to have been Loesses to the mortgage. "rom Canada.?There is still a very stubborn and 'lent discussion going on in Canada, about the reival of the seat of government. The people of Toito and Montreal want their towns to have the vilege ; whilst the people ot Quebec clamor louder in all the rest to have the seat of government lo:ed there. >Vith regard to Sir Charles Iiagot's administration 1 |K>pularity, < r want ot it, we shall hear more at next session of the Canadian Parliament. Some the papers state that their confidence in Impolicy w great that they feel sure, if a vote ol wan' of conrnce should he attempted, it would he negatived mediately by a large majority. On the other hand eral of the papers condemn his policy most veliently; and particularly his calling Lafontaine, Bald j, and otners. to t ike seats in the Executive Coun. The airangements of Sir Charles Bagot tor form h new ministry, have been tully completed, and | following is the result:? L B. Sullivan. Prcideiit of theCouncil; S. It.

In the House of Assembly, coinled of eighty-four members, it is asserted, upon dfy pood anthority, that there are only thirteen ;idealy opposed to the ministry, and eleven of im doubtful; thus leaving them sixty firm support. Mr. Ihinscotnbe and Mr Parent, wi'l retire in Parliament, but their places will doubtless be ipliedbyMr. E.G. Wakefield, and Mr. A. N.

Tut Wkllavd vs. thk Erik Canal.?We set it ?n as a conceded fact, a fact established hy ires, thai the business ot the Wetland canal is biasing.

His aptiearanoe is respectable, and'we ln\'r? tn.it cur sister Kopublic ol \Vw i iranada will j besu'islied with Mr. Iflacliford, and on knowing him w,II confirm the opinion we have lormed ol ins merits." 1 1 It is to be hoped Mr Plachford will be more sue- 1 cessful in negotiating a treaty than his predecessor. 1 The increasing imi>ortance of the trade to New < Granada, now nil carried on in vessels of that na- 1 lion, or wearing their flag, seems to demand more attention than is usually given to our foreign rela- I tions, w lien the power treated with is of a second or third r.ink among nations. i New Granada, in geographical situation, has ad- ] van'uges not possc^Med by any country of America. 'I he Atl mtic and Pacific both lave her shores, and the Isthmus ol Pun.ima offers the readiest and most certain communication between those two mighty oceans, ller territory reaches from the isthmus t*> the head waters of the Amazon ; and if a canal ?r Railroad (surveys for which have been made long since) should unite the two oceans, what important results may not be anticipated in case of i war, where one nation might have the privilege of I transportation of troops and materials for her fleets ' in the Pacific, and the other compelled to make a I voyage of 11111* or ten thousand miles round the 1 CHjK-s, for 'h?* Maine purpose 1 But in time of peace 1 it is not less important that our relations I should be friendly; indeed, more than that, they ! should be intimate- Without such facilities for manufacturing as other countries possess she must e?- ] ebange Iter(oid and produoe with other nations. The ( question is simply, shall it he with us or some other , tuitions ' 1! we enter the field we can drive out all ( others, but if we let others take the lead and get in- ( to possesMon.it will be hard to oust them, or change | the current of popular taste. We lio|>e that these- ( lection made hi this instance, Iihh been dictated by , the fitness of the |?erson tor the office, rather than as ( a reward for political services at home. Too much , care could not be used in choosing a man to treat ( with this honest, high-minded and upright people ; j and if he does nothing, lie should he recalled and ] another sent out forthwith in his place. g The Bogota paiiers mention that scnrcely had t peace been concluded between Bolivia and Peru, when 'he Peruvian chiefs 'ell at loggerheads with 8 each other. It appears that the army of the Sou'h I was arranged in two grand divisions,?one under j command of Gen. Antonio (Jutierez de la Fuente, , and the other under Gen. San Roman. The former *' accuses the latter of seditious conduct, in having withdrawn from his command. Sin Roman bestows a similar epithet upon I-a Fuente, for having d disobeyed certain orders of the Supreme Govern- j ment. The morals of the army suffered greatly by this dir-sention. <ien. Torrico was in Lima with 1 about :tiSH) m>-n, almost all raw recruits. The New Grenadian refugee. Gen. Obando, was ^ still in Peru, and was every day becoming more odious. A* ourgovernment has recently concluded a coin- a ntercial and friendly treaty with the Republic of Ecuador, it is not without interest that we learn the prob ihility of a pacific adiusiment of the diflerencs n lierwcen Ecuador and Peru. It a- ems that both parlies are dwposed to recognize the existence and 9 validity ?f the treaty of Guayaquil of 1829, accord- a ing to which all differences were to be adjusted by p the arbitrament of a friendly power. It may he |j that the Uni ed States will he the friendly power appealed to on this occasion. Mr. .Tames ll.Cau- s' .-ten is now the acknowledged Consul lor Ecuador, resident hi Wushington. Later from Havana.?The schooner Laura Vir- () giuia, has arrived at New Orleans from Havana, with ^ dates to the 12ih inst. Two slight motions of earthquake were felt at Santiago de Cuba on the 22J ult. The danger was but ^ momentary, and no injury was sustained. It is in contemplation to construct a railroad from the town of Cobre to Punta de Sal, in the neighborhood of Santiago. d The medical review, recently established in Hava- si na, is highly spoken of by the newspapers. ol The Saint Cecilia Society continued to give its concerts of vocal and instrumental music. q. The Noticioso complains of the small support hi- ^ tlierto extended to the Italian Opera,and suggests that c| a joint stock company of amateurs should be form- ||| ed, for the purpose of patronising all artists of distinction who might honor the city with their prel sence. Private Coirespondence. Havana, Oct. 13. The Uncft* arrived yesterday morning, dismasted, hav- u ing experienced a heavy gale on the 4th inst, in which she lost her topmasts, the head ol her foremast and deck load. The cargo in the hold is also probably damaged. The Kmpresario arrived same day. Kmprrsario and Uncus discharging. On the 10th instant, the English pilot boat Francis Cockburn brought our mails of the 1st ultimo I Irom Nassau. (apt. Elliott, formerly of one of the coin- . I psny's steamers, has come out as special agent to break ,, ii|i the line, and we are no longer to he humbugged by steamers that are thirty-five days bringing us new s. He . ml Drills us that there will be but one steamer a month from Knglaml, which will go to St. Thomas, Turks 1-1 ind, Jamaica, Belize Honduras, Vera Cruz, Tamplco, ?l' Havana, Nassau, Bermuda, and thence home. So that r" you also are to have the beneflt of their absence. In the |*r. nine mouths that they have been running, I believe they yj have brought us the latest dates lrom England but once. "c The Medway, during her last trip down the gulf, was 'J* obliged to h ave her mail and mail officer at Tamplco, be- *,u cause he could not get oil during a norther, and the last c steamer, the Sol way, from there, not only could not get JJ" the mail and officer, but was obliged to leave her own, . together w ith the purser, because ol the same difficulty. Our market coutiuues in a very dull state, and litttlc 1,1 improvement is to he lookeil tor until our great staple, su- ? gar, begins to make its appearance. Of the old crop there m are now Irom 40 to 50,000 boxes on hand, generally of an inferior quality,but which will be pretty well taken olf before the news arrives. Trices range from 3}, 7| a 619 rs. per ?* ar-obe, an t there is a slightly increased activity in consequence ol favorable advice* from Europe and the action ca of the tariff with you. The prospect for the coming crop 00 was very good before the heavy gale of the 1st of Sept., which prostrated a great deal of cane, so that now a re- ' duction of 70 a SO,009 boxes is anticipated from the last t?v crop. Coffet.?The new crop is now jiouring in, but the 00 heavy rains have retarded the drying, and m tich has been |"e blown lrom the trees. The crop, how ever, is still lair, and 'al we quote prime green at $8 50 a $9; lair $7 a $7 75 per quintal. Flour.?The stock is very small, but the low prices nj! with you tend to keep rates down, and the last sales, per ? Uncus, were effected at $15 35. This morning $15 only , is offered. /.ai d.?The stock is also very small, but dealers keep loot,in anticipation of heavv arrivals. Last sales per brl, $10 35.

The house as well and respectably filled. The pit and dress circle were crowded?the second tier nearly full? and the third empty, the manager having, for the Bret time in New York, put forth a moral courage unheard-of, und exclu ted the usual frail women who frequent that quarter. It would he unfair to criticise the first night of such a drama with severity, hut 011 the whole, it went otl very well. We must enter into its merits hereafter. The stage manager has taken some liberties with the original score of die great composer, which musical p.'ople must not altogether like.? Why strike out a beautiful passage ol llossini's to I'ui in .iiiuiurr <u nuuuri s . The production of this drama is a new and enri ous event in American tli?*utric.il history?and the courage oi Sixipson, in purifying the third tier, is a step that must attract the uttention ot the moral and religious world. The Park Theatre, in propriety, decorum, refinement, and moral entertainment, is now a fit place for all the clergy and the most pious of their (locks to visit. We doubt, however, whether there is inor d courage enough in the pulpit to a|>i>rove the moral courage of the theatre. We will see. Caution to Housekeepers?Female Thieves and Burglars Afloat.? Families and housekeepers ought to he very cautious of admitting several strange women, who are in the hahit of going in souples, and of calling at houses, and making enluiries of a frivolous nature. They are believed to >e thieves in disguise, prowling after plunder. The r mode is to ittipiire for some lady of the house, and while showed into the parlor by the servant, to ap iropriate what tliey can lay their hands upon. Yeaerday, two women of this description took the round >! several houses in Chambers and other streets, and n one house they were suspected?became insoent, and were turned out of doors, when they hould have been sent to the Police office. One oj Itese women is dressed in a light-colored gown, a ilk cape and straw bonnet, and has a long face and ug mouth, rather vulgar in appearance?the other s an older woman, with a veil over her face. No loubt they are thieves in disguise. Next News from Europe.?The steamer Calelonia, from Liverixiol the 19th ult., is out thirteen lays this noon. She will probably arrive at Boson by Wednesday. The Great Western, front Bristol 22nd instant, vill arrive on Saturday or Sunday, if not before. In the meaatitne, however, the Siddons may irrive from Liverpool, with five days later news. Clinton Hall.?Mr. Buchanan lectured here last , ight on the " Nervous Fluid," and performed i ome remarkable experiments He paralyzed the ] rin of a strong man so liiat he could not lift a < ound weight, and then magnetized it till he ceuld | ft one hundred pounds at arm's length.

Scarcely a week, passes that a black and white sheep are not couplod at the Police offices for their disgutting offences in the street* of our city, and little mullatto jokers are dropped about on the steps of the dwellings of our citizens, carefully wrapped in swaddling clothes and giving every evidence, from appeaanrces, of a full cross in the breed, resembling the ancient Egyptians or their brave an I heroic king, Sesostris.? The latest case, ei an open and avowed character, in which a dark Egyptian has given preference foralaly fair, and ?he to one ol Othello's caste ami tinge, transpired last week, and has cause 1 much excitement among those who cannot reconcils these things to their notions of color.

She is young, handsome and genteel, and adheres to her first love with all the fervor o early affection. There is truly no accounting for taste in this world.

Things continued so until she often would remain absent lor whole days, and sometimes late in theeveiiing, to the wouderof her friends. Her father conceived it to b? his duty a few months since to interfere, not sup|>osiiig, however, for an instant, that there was any improper conduct between his daughter und Smith, but believing that he was the instrument through which some white villain was plotting her destruction. He accordingly forbid her going to his premises,and a fewdays after, she decamped, and remained absent for fire weeks, hut so explained the matter on her return, as to make her parents believe that she was not with Smith. On Thursday last, her father's suspicions of her attachment for Smith being fully confirmed,he closeted her,and with a whip indicted a most severe castigation, scoring her hack und limbs in a serious manner. This, it ap|>cars, instead of inducing an acquiescence to his wishes, settled her former purpose; and on Friday morning she left her father's house, and openly avowed he' determined intention to live with, stick by, and re|>osc on the tioiom of her colored Egyptian, and she now remains with him in every other capacity, except as his lawful wife. Her father has resorted to every means, under the circumstances, to induce her to return home, and leave Smith, but it is of n? avail, and to add the climax to the vvliola affair, through the advice of Smith and his legal counsel, a warrant w as issued yesterday by Justice Merrill, for the arrest of her father, for the assault and battery committed u|>on her, and on which he was held to bail in the sum of $300 ! ! ! j She being over Id years of age he has made himself liable under the law for the ofTence.

Fires.?At two o'clock yesterday morning, a fire was liscovered in the frame grocery store of Jacob Smith, at ho corner of 120th street and third avenue, which de- j troved the building and two adjoining two-story frame wellings. The progress of the flames were so rapid, that fr. Smith and his clerk had barely time to escape with lieir clothes, not being able to save either his books or ny portion of the stock. The adjoining building was oc- a unied below as a dry good store, by Mr. Folsom, who ist all his stock,and even the money in his drawer.

What will the Legislature do] The ^Governor I uiid a majority of both branches are of the same politics; and the financial question must be met. There are no banks now, no shinplasters, no temporary ex)>edient*, and the only State Bankrupt Court is repudiation. The mass of the people are honest, and I think a State tax will be laid sufficient to meet the interest at least, probably something more. The set who have charge of the Governor, and who manage the Pennsylvanian, are wondrous uneasy. A direct tax is a bad topic for coaxing voters with. I |terceive the Secretary of the Commonwealth, Mr. Parsons, is in town. Whether he is after the State interests and the coming I sale of stocks; or a leetle for the vacuncy in the Court of Session that will be caused by Judge Barton s resignation, 1 know not. The Sessions as at present constituted, will not last. On tiiat you may defend I err greatly, if there is not "une extraordinaire shindy" among the Judges when Barton resigns. The whole criminal business of this citv and county wants organization and cheapness. The Sessions have been a set of shambles, where everv thing is done by earwigging the bench by supposed influences existing between counsel and certain Judges.
