NEW YORK HERALD. Mew loik, Widiir?duy, Apill VU, l?45, New* fjr Kiiropr. The " Caledonia" nails from tf oston to-morrow. Letter bags for her will close in this city at half past 4 o'clock this afternoon. An evening edition *f the Herald, containing ilie latest news from all parts of ttds continent, with a great variety of political, commercial and theatri cal intelligence, will be ready at three o'clock, P.M. 0O- We understand '.hat preparations are in pro gress in this city for a great public meeting of the citizens, irrespective of party distinctions, for the purpose of expressing the opinion ol the metropolis on the present state of the foreign relations of the United States, as recently developed in the news from England, Mexico, Texas and the Brazils. Oar Foreign Halations?Popular Opinion. The extraordinary and interesting position of the United States in relation to England?to Mexi co?to Texas?to the Brazils, but particularly in regard to our relations with England, is beginning to excite popular sympathy, and popular Bentiment, and popular impulses throughout the whole land. We are certainly in the midst oi a stirring time. Diplomatists and special messengers are flying about in all directions?some across the contiuent some across the Atlantic?som* here nnd some there. An important public meeting has also been oalled in Philadelphia, and will be held on the oid site of revolutionary sentiment and action in that city, for the purpose of expressing the public opinion orthe people of that city on the Oregon question, as it has been presented by the inaugural of President Polk, and the declarations of the British ministry in both Houses of Parliament. Thus it will appear that every week?nay, every day, some new intelligence is coming to us from these various countries, whose relations with us are in a very critical and interesting condition. Texas is already in a state of great excitement on the subject of annexation. It i? generally given out that her official classes, from the President down, are opposed to annexation, unless some spe cial advantages accrue to them. It is also stated that Mr. Ashbel Smith, the Secretary of State of that Republic, has arrived in this city, on his way to Boston, Liverpool, and London, in order to open fresh negotiations with England and other Euro pean powers, and to see what new conditions they may procure for Texas, provided she remain inde pendent and reluse annexation to this country. On the other hand we have every reason to believe that the people of Texas are so bent on being an nexed to this country, both as a matter of feeling nnd of Belf-interest, that they will produce a revo lation at once, if necessary, in order to accom plish it and destroy the influence nud power o* their own government if it should impede the at tainment of their desires in this important mat ter. On the other hand the position of Mexico is be coming more and more interesting every day. Every fresh development seems to indicate that there is come deep and settled policy in con nexion wi;h the European monarchies now going on in that rtgion. We do rot believe that Mexico, if ft to herself, and uninfluenced by Eurnpeau diplomacy, would ever have made any serious objections to the onnexation of Texas, or ventured on anything like an interruption of her commercial tad diplomatic intercourse with this country. There cannot be any doubt that Mexico is instigated by the European powers, through secret agents, and none so likely as British agents, for the purpose of throwing obstacles in the way of the settlement of the Oregon question, so fur as the interests of the United States ?re concerned. By the latr3t and most authentic intelligence from Mexico, it would eppeer that an op?n war with this country is. indeed, seriously contemplated. Well, if it is to be so, let it come. In the meantime, what is doing by our country, in relation to all these important matters, and what do the government intend to do in the midst of these complicated and menacing difficulties 7 The people of Philadelphia,and also in this city, as we can hear at every street-corner, are beginning to agitate on this subject, and particularly in relation to the tone assumed by the British government in the two Houses of Parliament. Ia a few weeks, we have no doubt the whole country will be like a prairie on fire on the Oregon question and our relations with England. If it be ascertained, as is highly probable, that England is now stimulating Mexico to assume her present belligerent attitude, a feeling of indignation and excitement throughout the country will be produced, which will be over whelming, and paralleled by nothing but what has been seen only twice, and that was during the war of the revolution, and in the war of 1812. The spark has caught. It only remains for the press to record the popular movements throughout the country. The great meeting in Philadelphia will be the first intimation of popular sentiment, and no doubt that example will be followed by all the other large cities. What, then, is the government to do 1 What does Mr. Polk mean 1 What ia the Cabinet about 1 Heretofore they have been drivelling away their time in rquabbles about petty removals and ap pointments, throughout the land; In deliberating on the awfully important matter of a government organ at Washington?what it wss to be called? who was to conduct it?and how it was to be ar ranged,?as if the destiny of the republic depended on any of these miserable abortions called Wash ington newspapers! It is time for the President and his Cabinet to start from their lethargy. Let thst?i awake to the importance and the duties of the crisis in tne progress of civilization and liberty in which this country has now been placed. Let them see to it, that they adopt, without a mo ment's further delay, such a course of action as will best support and carry out those great princi ples which lie at the foundations of the government, and which triumphed so gloriously in 1776 Managers IIal* and 11 am bun.?The Rev. Manager Hale preaches a little sermon to Manager Hamblin on the subject of theatricals?conflagra tions?special dispensations of Providence?popu lar sympathy for the distressed?virtue and morali ty in general?and a variety of ot^er mbjects " too tedious to mention," as the auctioneers say. It is, however, very amusing?very rich?and very char acteristic. To see Manager Hale reading Man ager Hamblin a lecture about the morality of pub lic exhibitions for the amusement of ihe communi ty is, indeed, funny in an excruciating decree. No doubt scenes have been perpetrated within the walls of ihe Bowery Theatre which hurt better linve been left undone, but really we do not believe that the two Managers, in point of public mora s, present much difference. Theatrical exhibitions at the Bowery at u shilling, end laughing gas and negro serenaders at the Tabernacle at twenty-five cenis a hesd, were, we opine, pretty much on a per in the scale of iniquity, in which Manager Hale gives such a terrible balance to Mauuger Hmnblin It is, however, vcrv true that ia one rcspcct Manager Hale has an advantage over Manager Hamblin. The latter shuts np hie theatre on ihe W&bbath, but the former keeps hi* open, and hires a clergyman to preach and to ;r*y, whilst the manager wipes his month with a white pocket handkerchief, and turning up the whites of his eyw and the browns of hi3 hands, thanks Go! that he ia not as other men or even as this publican, Hamblin- Before an indiscriminntii g public, Mana ger Hale may thuj have some advantage. Hypo critical prof'-aeions nuke a very good coat and pair of breeches fortius world's wear; but they don't go for much in that place where all the mock piety that has ever inaulted Heaven within the walls of the Taberoacle, or in the Journal of Commtrit, wouldn't purchase se much aa one drop ot water to cool a blistered tongue rHK Pr<" l'a.-r|) 8TATK CONVKNTION?A RlVOLt' WOKAir Movimcnt.

In a nig it or two there must, we suppose, be a crisis?a tUre-up between the proprietors?lessees? mana gers? and all. But till the crisis takes place, we can't teil who is to have Palmo's theatte. Hatnblin, we understand, ia about to erect a magnificent and spacious tent over the ruins o! his theatre in the Bowery, and ao come out with hiB light, pretty, attractive summer theatre in leaa than a week. Thia is, indeed, a novel idea, and some tiling classical, too. Let him go to woik at once. He would doubtless bring back all hia old audi | snces, and be very profitably engaged at the same j time he was going on with (his project of a aew theatre in Broadway. At the Park, the tide of prosperity has fairly set in. Last night there was another overflowing house. The " Bohemian Girl" appears to be all the rage, and ia drawing much better audiences thau when it was firs: produced. Madams Otto's Complimentary Concert.?This lorig talked of atiiir came ol last evening to an elegant and crowded house. We seldom have had the satisfaction of attending at a concert that presented a more interesting and a more entertaining array of musical gems than those which gave last night so much delight. Madame Otto, the worthy object of the benefit? worthy tnrough hsr musical excellence, but still more through her disinterestedness, kindness, and chari table disposition, which alwaya are found in con nection with real merit?acquitted herself of her happily selected pieces with a skill and grace which deserve the highest eulogy The voluble cavalina, from Betley, a severe test of vocal capa city, she gave with an ease nud aplomb vouching amply for study and taste, aa well as her web known Tyrolienne, of which the public are eo fond. Universal applause, and a beautiful wreath of fresh flowers were her reward. Pico la-diva, whom Boston and Philadelphia have very reluc tantly restored to us, volunteered the charm of her great talent, which never shone to greater advantage- Mary Taylor, "by the kind permission r W*"larn Mitchell," sung two airs with much fe<ling and skill. Madame Burkhardt who made all the could of an air, that is anything bu< grateful tor the Biuger, and a Promising, new and lovely debutante, Miss "Windmiller, whose neat ta lent shone through the veil of great fright, lent their kind assistance.

Iiapetti, Grone voelt and Kyle vied for the largestshare ot applause 15 j ir re9uectlve pieces. But in connection with Madame Ojto, the honors of the evening were for Mr Heinrich, whose magnificent composition was received with a perfect hurricane ol applause, a mighty avalatiche of bravos It was the overture of hie'gr.nd historical oratorio? The Pil/f,imt to th* IVcwll orld A boldness ofconception, in the highest degree striking and impressive, an instrumentation, whose brilliancy leaches the highest pinnacle ol maBtersh-p, a mighty sea ot grand ideas rushing with a buret of unresisiible passion through the fl >od-gates ot harmony, an endless variety of thoroughly ori ginal rythmeB, are its characteristics. The work ia too complicated, too grand, too profound, to per mit a detailed criticism after a single hearing, an?? we can only allude to the opening with organ ar.d two oboe solos, to the capricious change from lor tisslmo to pianissimo in the march, which paints eo truthfully the stiugele of freedom with its ene mies, and to the joyous melody ot the Pollaca. which glides along so powerfully ar.d yet so grace fully. It was one of the greatest triumphs we have ever witnessed. It is only justice to apeak ?f the musician-like manner with which Mr Timm pre sided at ihe piano iorte. Very few people are aware of the difficulty, responsibility and impor tance ot this office, and Mr. Timm discharges it with an accuracy which cannot bi surpassed.

The Vox del Pvtblo assails the Ministry, accusing them of incapacity, and declaring that before undertaking a war upon Texas, they should employ proper measures for saving the Californias fiom iheanirchy which threatens to destroy and ruin that rich and v?t portion ol the Republic. The papers literally teem with articles upon Texas, showing that the public mltd in that quarter is deeply ex cited upon the subject, and probably ripe lor extreme measures. The Diario dt Vera Cruz is one of the few moderate prints in the Republic, and that journal ob terves that though sincerely and ardontly desiring peace, it can scarcely see how it is to be preserved \ letter liom Mrz-Hlan, dated the i9th March, says? "By a vessel which ar. ivid here yesterday from Upper California, we karn that General Michetorena with 300 troups ison his way to this poit, having been compelled to leavdthat country by the termso' the capitulation The Vera Ortiz papers speak of a horrible murder com mitted at Puebla by u prie-t, in rontequenceoi a crimir al passion. The particulars not mentioned. Senor Kcheverria has resigned the office of Minister of Finance, on account of ill health, and Stnor Luis de la Rosa has been appointed in bis stead The people of the Dopar>mout of Chihuahua rrfure, positively, to pay allfdirect texes levied by the govern, ment, upon the ground that the irruptions cf the Apa che Indians have reduced them to extreme want, and that hey need succor from the Government, instead of being compelled to contribute to its support. The celebrated criminal,Uru?>ra, condemned to the galleys for ten years, escaped Irom the prison at Mezat lan, on the 16 h uU. His evasion is atenbed to tho neg lect of the authorities. General Woo', of the army of the North, arrived at Mexico on the 28d utt. having resigned the ccmmand of his trcopa 1o Geneial Arista. sJFrom the tone ol the Mexican prints, ond from official communications made by one depar:ment of state to ano ther, wo entertain no doubt that the Mexican government lots really intend something like an overt act of hostility towards this country. Tho only question with it now la time. For example, the Minister ol Foreign Relations in a document sent to the Legislature on the 31 instant, de clares that annexvion must inevitably bring on war. Though Mexico might, without any loss of digniiy, yield u reluctant assent to the independence of Ttxua, yet sl*e could not submit in silence without a po*it>ve loss oi honor, 11 the Junction of that country to a foreign nation. He lay a [great stress on the probade interference ol France and Ktiglend to prevent a consummation of this measure, 'ram a determination they have evinced tooproaeany furih? r increase oi territory ol that republic. From this we should he inclined to believe that the Mexicnn gov ^rnmeai is anxious to receive intelligence from Kurope previously to committing itseif, by a formal declaration of war. The Diario do Gobiimo, the State print, in i*s number of the 31 instant, however, state* pnaitively t'nt the go vernment is engaged in planning carta n operation* cl a warlike character eg linst us or the Texan*, vhich its liscre'ion will not allow it to disclose It profeine* to look at a speedy nnd successful issue to the>-e operations. ?

(Applause.)

The public mind is highly ex cited by the many rumors ol war ?fl at, and capitalists are unsettled in the disposal of their idle funds. We ate a!, most daily in tho receipt of news from Mex.oo, end it must be admitted that the nature of the advices increasea the probability of difficulties in some shapo, arising be tween this country and that, which will tend to destroy mueh of the commercial prosperity existing in fhia coun try. The agitation of the Texts and Oregon questions unsettles business generally, and oreatea a feverish state of the stock market.

So far at the value of ties-; stocks is concerned, the: ? his since February bren an actual improvement, merely by the accumulation of inte-est. Tho slight dsciin-. in quotations for soma ol the best in the list, has no <ioubt been produoed by the war lever raging at this moaaent aa extensively. Meeting* have t*cpn called in Pailai'e!* po!a to take iato consideration the statement! of the Sri. ti*h >'.iniitry in r?Uti?n to Oregon, and we have no doubt bat that as the same freling apreads through the country, similar meetings will be held in all sections Waean. not but look upon these movements as being prematnre( aid attended wi'h muoh evil, aa they serve to destroy confilonce, atid seriously injure the business operations of ail elassts. W? have the authority o( the Treasurer of the State of Pennsylvania for atatiog, that the intereet doe on theSeate dabt in August, can only be partially paid, when due, ia c ah, aid that bills will be issued for the unpaid part, re deemable oat of the Srst moneys which come iuto the treasury. This settles the point at one*, and tbecredt* tore ol the Stat* may as well make up their mludi that only a fractional per cent of the amouut tnea due will be paid In cash, and the balance sometime bet we >n the flrat of August and the first of Fabrnary. The cordition cf the treasury at thii moment is such that it is imposvibN to teil how large a portion cf the two and a half percent then due will be paid in cash, but should the receipts be no larger for the last three months of the tern than they haverbeen for the fl-st three, there will not be a balanoe iu the treasury on the Ut of August more than large ercgh to pay an eighth part ofthe amount due. The revsnua of the Statu will ha limited until about the close of the next tirm, and the Executive waa aware of this fict ?hen he sjpgested to tke Legislature, last Jacuory, la asocial meatage, that the aoundeet policy for the 8t<te to pursue, under the nirennastanees of the case, was the part pay. rnent of the lutereat then dne in caih The argumert'i Is advanced in favor ol suah an arrai gcm nt wete unheeded, and the irnesury was drained of evary dollar to pay the in* terent on the funded debt only, leaving the interest on a debt of more than lour millions of dollars tiopnid. The amount ol funds in the treasury on tho 1st 01 February lest ?which was only sufficient to pay the interest on a part ?( the deb'?had been accumulating lor many montha. Tba treasury required replenishing to meat a oorreapondiug d-mm least in the ifmcaof six months, withont any additional reionrcea than the gradual increaa* in the in come from the publie works. The aaaonnt in thatm-ury ontha 1st of February laat won Id have paid, with theim<)l balance there will be on the lit of Angnat In ca?h, about one and a quarter par oont of the two and a half due in Feb ruary and August. Partiea are pretty equally divided, ant of ?he State, aa to the houea y and eff ict of this policy, and 1 might be very questionable, were there not in tho per spective additional aonrcea of revenue from which tho government si the State ea<ioipated deriving a vary largo sum annoelly.
