NEW YORK IIERALI f'w York, Thar?:lo)', June H, 1H43. MAILS FOR EUROPE. Extra New York Herald. The steamer Great Western, Captain Matthews, leaven at three o'clock this afternoon for Liverpool Her letter bags ?lo?e at 'wo o'clock. The intelligence that she will take out will be highly interesting. We shall, therefore, issue, a. u^'i il, an Extra Hkraud, to be ready at h ill past one o'clock, which will contain the news received to that hour from Texta, Mexico, California, Oregon, Washington, Arc. Arc. All the markets will be given in full ; also the latest theatrical intelligence. The price of this extra, in, or out of wrappers, will be two cents per copy, only. Pros;rem oi" RepublicanWm on tlic Continent ?The Revolution In California. \V> received a day or two ago, and publish on our first page this morning, a series oi exceedingly in teresting sketches of ihe political and social history of California, for a year past, up to last January. This correspondence canie to us by the way of New Orleans, having been transmitted thence across Mexico, and comes from a source perfectly authen* tic- Later news was received some days previous ly, giving an account of the successful termination of the revolution in California, which is only des cribed in ito commencement by our porrespondect This subject acquires a great interest from the ge neral belief that as soon as the annexation of Texas has been effected, in spite of the opjiosition of Mexi co, Fr mce, and England, u movement will be made in the South and West, for ihe purpose of uniting California, in a similar manner, to this confederacy. The revolution in California, although the first in a series of events which will lead to results of great interest and magnitude, was a small, and in some respects, a ludicrous nfiiir when contrasted with the mighty revolutionary movements which have shaken kingdoms to their centre. On tile 20th and 21st of February last, the decisive and " desperate conflict" between the Cnlifornians and the Mexicans took place. Two hundred and fifty cannon balls ?veru lired, but the entire slain and wounded amounted to six horses. The result was, how ever, sufficiently decisive. The governor-ge neral becoming quite disheartened by the desertion of forty or liftv foreigners, and the remainder of his " army" refusing to tight against their countrymen, lie surrendered at discretion to the " insurgents," and California, from Bodega to San Diego, is now under its own rule. The people arc determined to govern themselves, acknowledging " the laws of Mexico" when it pleases them. In the meantime the numerous bands of emigrants to Oregon are di verging towards California, and a strong and influ ential American population will very soon be col lected in the neighborhood of St. Francisco, one of the finest harbors of the world. Monterey, where our corres|>ondence is dated, is not far distant from St. Francisco. We hive been furnished with the following list of arrivals at this port, and as it is o' no little value in enabling us to estimate the present condition and prospects of that place, we annex it:? Arrivals of Vk4*kls in thk Port ok Montkrkv, Ca LIKflilMA, IN THK ?KAK 1S41. Hi Ships, 6 Ships of war, 26 American, 1 Barques, II Merchant ships 22 Mcxican, UrigK, 7 Whale ships, 4 French, ?I Schooncrs. I Transport for 3 Hawaiian, cattle, 1 English, 11 Barques, 1 Genoa brig ol 10 Brigs, war. S Schooners. 3 different vsls 67 i)7 different vessels As several of the vessels arrive here at different times, before they load lor their own country, the '29 vessel* divided as above stated, have made 6? arrivals for the year ending December 31, 1844. All intelligence from California and Oregon wilj now be of great interest. The progress, movements and success of the emigrants will be anxiously ob_ served. Fears have been entertained in some quar ters that California will be again reduced under the way of Mexico, but we think there iB little ground for these apprehensions. The accessions of strength which the people will receive'from our emigrant*, will enable them to maintain their independence Besides, according to the last accounts, they are in the midst of a new counter-revolution in Mexico, in favor of Santa Annn, and no one can tell what will become of that distracted country itself. The whole [Kjpulation, inhabiting the territories between the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, are deliberating whether it would not be better for them to unite with the United States, and so secure to themselves peace, comfort and prosperity. Will that be ano ther question for European interference 1 Removals ani> Appointments.?We perceive a statement in the fVtuhmgton Union, attributed to the New York Herald, that a private letter men tioned the fact of thirty-seven removals in two dnys at Washington, and which the Union contradicts as a gross exaggeration. On inspecting the files of the Herald, we cannot discover that nny auch statement was made in its columns, and are very much in clined to believe that the Union has been imposed upon by a fictitious paragrnph in some other quarter. We gave a list of removals in the city ot Washing, ton since the accession of Mr. Polk, which com prised, we believe, between thirty and forty cases. That is all that we published in the way of misstate ment, if there be any. We gave this list of removals with the view of showing and recording our disap probation of the principle of proscription for opinions' sake, which appears to[jhave been adopted by the present administration, and is just as obnoxious to all right ;ind reason, as it was under the regime of ihe whig party. It is a miserable piece of business, ihi? proscription for the sake of opinion, whether i?n>etrated by whigs or democrats. We know no distinction between parties on this score. Nkw B<>aki> ok Kmwution Fiohtino fo* the Holy Biki.k.?An animated debate and much ex citement was expected last evening, on the subject of the apt?ointment of President in the new board It will be seen, on reference to our report, that the democrats have a majority as a p?rty ; but, on the divisions, a coalition between the whigs and the lust remnant of what is called the "native" party, has operatrd so as to exclude their cundidate. The par lies appear to lie nicely balanced, and as there are '.>nt four or live whigs in the hoard, who have it in ilieir power to decide all party questions tliut may arise between the violent i>urti<cung at cither side, tiiev may be said to hold completely the balance of power. The strength of the party has already been vu{Ticieiitl^tested,at- will be ol>served*Dn referenceto our report; and, unable to agree, the board have adjourned. The appointment of President at their next meeting (on Wednesday next) is looked to with much interest. Passinukm BY the Western.?The Great We.<-t ?ni will -ail this afternoon with upwards of a hun dred passengw?. She may be tilled by fresh arrivnl this morning from the north and -touth. Among those who have engaged berths in herare the veteran and highly esteemed General Robert Armstrwng, the new Consul to Liverpool) Mr. Anderson, the trage dian; and John Greig, Esq., of Canandaigun, a Scotch nfWoiMiri. Two bearers of important des patches also :jo in her, one of whom recently arrived at sew Orleans in the British frigate Kurvdice from Vera Cru?. Tub Weather The bent of the weather conti nued oppressive through yesterday. At noon the mercury touched nearly MO in the *hnde. From ??very place we hear of intense heat. > Among the arrivals yesterday were lx> Prince (It; Mu.-iquano (Joseph Bonaparte) and Mr.Mtillard, who occupy apartments at the Globe Hotel. The distinguished Prince previously entered his nanv on the registry of the Vsfor House as Princi Joaepli Bonaparte ( OLLE0T0J13HIP op New York.?We believe there ta a good deul of mystery about the Collectorship? f York?the resignation or removal of the pre sent incumbent and the appointment of his successor It is generally supposed that Mr. Lawrence, now President of the State Bank, and Chamberlain of (li s eity, has I eea offered the office by the President W c ho le ru that Mr. Lawrence wishes to retain his present bank presidency and his chamberlaio -liip. in addition to the Collector-hip; against wliic! there is nn objection in the mind of the President, or ;it less! there is supimsed to be, so that there is s "ne doubt about Mr. Lawrence's appointment. According to all appearances, there will be a change ol politics throughout the country in another four years, and Mr. Lawrence, on re signing hit. present offices, has only in exchange u four years office at the best. It may be doubtful, therefore, whether the President will consent to Mr. Lawrence's retention of his present oflices in con nection with the Collectorship, and in that case it is not for us to say what Mr. Lawrence's determi nation will be. This is what we have learned on that point. On the other point, we learn that the Collector sent his resignation to Washington a week ago, but it was withheld from the President by some of Gov. Van Ness's friends in the hope that lie'would still be sustained in his office. But a messenger, with a duplicate of the resignation, was despatched yester day, in order that the President might be altogether freed from any embarrassment growing out of the contests between the <li(/ites of this city oil account of the Collectors-hip. We have every reason to be lieve tiiat the administration part with Governor Van Ness with the best feelings, and it is highly prob tble that he will be appointed Minister to Ma drid in the place of Mr Irving, who will be recalled. At all events, the President and his cubinet, or a portion of it, have been very much annoyed by the agitation, and meetings, and denunciations, and ef forts made by certain democratic cliques here, on the subject of the Collectorship. Whoever gets the appointment will get a load of trouble on his back, and the foundation is already laid for a great deal of discontent by this removal. Governor Van Ness has given great satisfaction to the government, as we learn, and we have no doubt the following paragraph, which we find in one of the organs at Washington?the Constitution?ex presses correctly the sentiments of the administra tion with regard to the Ex-Collector that is to be Mr. Van Nous is a New Yorker of the ol.l Democratic stock, bora in the mansion now occupied by ex-Picsi ?10,lt=Ya.n Dur?" at Lindenwold. He was educated in that State, and began his political career as an able ex ponent and zealous advocate of Jeftersonian doctrines ? Hiring the war of 18mA, ho held with high reputation the ofhcc of Collector of Vermont, when its duties were qJ a most responsible character, beth in a military and commercial point of view. He was afterwards Chief Justice ol that State, and acquired for its Supremo Court an elevated reputation for sound legal discernment und equity. He was subsequently nominated by the demo cracy of V crinont for Governor, and was triumphantly elected, thus redeeming the State from Federal misrule niul was again elected lor a second term to the same of' lice, lie was one oftho earliest friends of General Jack son 111 \ ermont, and upon his accession to the Presiden cy, was selected as Miuister to Spain ; and while there mainlv through his diplomatic exertions, the Spanish Ministry wore induced to recognise the independence of tiiicoi c i"i I,?.t"rn ',0,n Spain, he again entered the political field, and m 1840 w as one of the most untiring advocates of Mr. Van Buren'a re-election.*In the lato Pre sidential contest his efforts were zealous and unceasin? in bchalt ot Mr. Polk's election. Ho has, from the first, and decided advocate for th? annexation ?! ? wbose cause one of his brave sons forfeited his life, and another was rescued from a similar fate by the special interposition of General Jackson. Under his administration the New York custom-house has become a model lor cfHciencv, promptitude and rectitude, fn nl! his relations, social, official, or political, ho stands un reproachcd and irreproachable. The President we have reason to believe, warmly appreciates the worth and services of (JovcrnorVan Ness, as a citizen, a demo crat, and a public olticer, and entertains, personally the kindest feelings for him. Launch of a New Packet Ship.?Yesterday a new vessel was added to our splendid fleet of pack ets, in the shape of the ship Fidelia, which was 1 lunched from Webb's ship yard, foot ofTth street, at 2 o'clock. Lvery thing went off most satisfacto rily, and she assumed her new position amidst the cheers of an immense crowd of spectators, both la. dies and gentlemen. Modern ship building has advanced to such a pitch, that it is difficult to keep pace with the nume rous splendid ships that are daily being sent down upon our wuters, and the journalist can but say that each is more splendid than the last; however, in this instance, a mere description of her build, di mensions, ifcc., will prove ihe best praise that can be bestowed, as it will show the great care and ex |)ense lavished on these floating palaces: She is for the old black ball line of Liverpool pack ets, and of about 1100 tons, carpenter's measure ment, is built by Webb,and that is praise. Her frame is of live oak, locust and cedar; her planking of white oak, copper-fastened, and with strength and adaptation of materials proportionate. Her dimensions are?Length of deck, 16fi feet. Breadth of beam, 351 " Depth of Hold, 21} " lie model combines buoyancy with sharpness. A fine, bold entrance, long liat floor, and clean run, tell the story of a good carrier and a good sailer.? Her broadside looks like that of a sloop of war. The stern is singularly light and handsome,and the figure head, a female at full length, with most lite-like pro portions. * The cabin will accommodate some thirty passen gers, with most spacious and well ventilated Htate rooms, while in conformity with the demands of the age,the forecastle is spacious, roomy, dry, and pro vided with idl needful accommodations. The timber heads are aboard for some distance down, and filled with salt. There is salt between die knees. The whole frame is well ventilated, and every thing seems to have been thought of that can impart strength and duration. She is to be commanded by Captain W. G. Hack stall, a name well and favorably known in this port, and will assume her place in the line on the 1st July next. The Synagogues Yesterday.?The various con gregations of the children of Israel attended religi ous service in their syn ues yesterday, it being the festival of the Penceost. That in Elm street, and others which we veiled, were decorated abun dantly with roses, as rich and odoriferous as those of Sharon. Among the " maids of Judah" who oc cupied the galleries exclusively, ih.-re were a goodly proportion of truly beautiful faces, and as the ser vices seemed lo be conducted rather more in the spirit which moved David to dance before the ark, than in that in which he mourned his son Absalom, the prepossessing feces here and there visible wore un unclouded serenity, with now and then a dash of gaiety. The housees were far from being full, and strangers had only to enter and be seated, without even the formality of uncovering heads, as die occupants were found wearing their hats all through the ser vices. To the Gentile, or uninitiated, these were not intelligible. On entering, the men put on a square white shawl, on two portions of the border striped blue?took up a book in the Hebrew language and chimed very assiduously, but far from harmoniously, in a half chaunt, half recitation, which was led by three persons placed in a square enclosure near the entrance of the church. At times this chaunt dwin dled to a soft and low whimper, at others it arose to a loud and strong chorus?at intervals it took the form of a solo, whose performer repeated the words with u volubility thai could only be acquired by long drilling, whilst at other periods it be came a hearty and joyous strain from the united throats of all present. .Sometimes a memBer would ari?e nnd approach the altar, repeat some words standing anil retire to his seat ; at other times, ves sels of silver were taken out of, and soon after re turned to the sanctuary, but any thing else in the way ot ceremony, except a nod of friendly recogni tion. or the profler and acceptance of a social pinch <>f vault, or some such trilling observance, formed no part of the proceedings in the synagogue. At live o'clock in the afternoon, a discourse was given in English, by Mr. .(ucob Falkner, in the Elm t-treet Synagogue,in which benevolence, union, and a strict observance of the letter and spirit of their religion were inculcuted.

Grand Opkha-Geand Musical Criticism -A sp endtd, original, true blue American opera is now wrapping the senses of the good people of Philn Sio?a ? k 13 C,euling u ^''inenJous sensation all over the country-that is, if we are to lecteJCfh^hef ?l lhC neW8papers- 11 W1" be recol lected that before tins opera was produced, we pre Mr Fr'v^h ,T "T1 Sagadty and for?ight, that wnrM ' . u u'! com'loaer. w?uld throw all the d into the thade, and rob the brows of Mozart, Rossm., and we don't ftnow how many others, of all their fine-honored laurels. We are verv happy to find that in opposition to the opinions of some per sons pretending to musical taste, who went from this city to hear the new grand opera, our prophecy has been completely verified. The critics are ail in raptures with this opera. Hear how the Express of this city, and the National Intelligencer of Wash ington, speak of its transcendent and incomprehen sible merits:?

Pennsylvania, it seems, is now not only rich in mines of anthracite, but has struck also on a vein of music, such as Italy never knew We trust, therefore, that Mr. Fry will put up his opera, silver gilt drinking cups and all, and come on here We are willing to believe a reasonable quantity of mystery, and inspiration and genius, but alas! this is a doubting age, and the sons of men call for proof TJ faith. So do, good, wonderful, in spired Mr. fry, let us hear and judge for ourselves. Police.?llie Police Bill passed both Boards last evening, and the Mayor, it is expected, will sign it forthwith, and nominate a Superintendent. We had, however, a little exhibition at the wind up of the proceedings before the Board of Aldermen, last evening, which gives an insight into the petty jealou sies, and little bickerings which have obstructed the passage of the bill, which has been shifted about from board to board during the last few days. It is lamentable to witness such petty bickerings amongst a party. We trust that this will cause no delay in perfecting the immediate organization ofsuch a body, as we are in a most deplorable condition without a police force. The Naval Court Martial?June 9.?Tlie cross examination of Lieut. D. Porter wap continued on the part of the defence, to a conclusion. It was confined principally to questions relative to the nature of the t'lorkn ' and the conduct ol the blockading squadrou. I i that they had never made an attack upon the isels ol othei nations ; and that, some time previous to >c capture of|the squadron by Captain Voorhees, the Argentine admiral had undertaken to hombard one of the blockaded Montevidean ports ; on which occasion Com modore Purvis (the Kuglisn commander) interfered against the Argentine fleet, and compelled them to haul down their color* by firing into them. The Judge Advocate also offered additional testimony for the prosecution, in the way of official documents, let ters, 8cc., (some of which were written by Captain Voor hees himself,) to show that he had acted under a lull knowledge of the extent and character of the blockadc He also offered documentary testimony to show, as uiulei the fifth specification, that on the '?><1 of October he had declared the blockade at an end as respected American vessels.? Washington Union. Milwaukie Riot.?The people at Milwaukie have actually come to blows, or rather lirearim, about their bridges. The Sentinel of Thursday week say Yesterday, while sitting in our sanctum, we were disturbed by the firing of cannon.- Soon a lai^ge crowd assembled, broke down the Spring street bridge and then proceeded to that across the Menomonce. This they also rendered impassable. Many of the mob at the Alenomo nee bridge were armed with pistols and guns, and one or two individuals were considerably injured, though not dangerously. While writing this article, cannons and guns are bein^ fired. Somo of our citi/.ons report rathei unfavorably of the state of society in our sister city ol Milwaukie, and represent the Badgers as being decided!} belligerent. While the Princeton was lying in Milwau kie, a large mob collected near the Spring street bridge, and after some preliminary tiring of cannon, fcc., the bridge was demolished, so as to preclude the possibility j of passing the river at that place. The bridges below wero then destroyed, so that it was impossible for tenmF to cross and nearly so for foot passengers. It apiwared that this disgraceful outbreak wasoccnsioned by section al jealousies ; the pcunle on either side of the river were fearful that their neighbors were doing too well. Important Arrest.?James Young, Lieutenant of the Philadelphia police, came on to this city yesterday in search of a man nnniod John Kcnedallon, chargc'i with robbing a trunk of About $3000, which hod been left in the care of Messrd. Bingham, Dock and Stratton, agents of a transportation line in Philadelphia, \ftci securing the aid of o/Hcer Ridgcly, they went to seek for the suspected offender, and succeeded in arresting him He confessed his guilt, and was sent to jail, to await n requisition from the Governor of Pennsylvania. About nine hundred dollars of the stolen money, in gold, was found on his ptTxon.?haltiinnre Patriot. Execution of Mrs. Elizabeth Herd.?A few days since we published 11 report, which was cur rent in our exchanges, that this human fiend, who wu*. under sentence of death in Illinois, had cheatcd the gal lows by eating glass. The Charlmtnn (HI.) Reporter re futes this report, and gives a minute account of her exe cution, pursuant to sentence. She was hanged at St Lawronccville, (111.) on the 93d ult. C arthahe Trials.?We are informed that the jury in the case of the indictments for the murder ol Joe Smith, the Mormon prophet, after an absence ol about thirty minutes, returned a verdict of not guilty. Tho in dictments for the murder of Hyram Smith will tie trie'1 at a special term, which will bo held alter the circuit i? gone through with.

George, ac noui|nni?*d by the stars and stripes of the Unitet ^tateg, floated gaily over the ground of the St !Je.<rrre's Cricket Club, at the end of 27th street, ii tlit* Blootniugdale road. Beneath them were pitch ^d thf necessary tents for the accommodation of the members and their friends, of whom there were a goodly muster in attendance, which gradually in creased as the day progressed. The weather was as favorable as could have beeu desired. The genial shower of the previous night, and that of the morn ing, together with the good rolling of the turf in the early part of the day, made the ground in capital order. The m itch announced to come off was be tween eleven members of the Club from the south -if England, and eleven from the north. The fol lowing are the names:? South. Nortr. Mcsiri. Groom, Motors. Wild. Tiniion, * Symo, Marsh, wheatcralt, Bristow, Wright, Tins on, jr. Dodiworth, Bage, Oreen, Warren' Eyre, Nichols, Hindbaugh, Vinton, Bucklcy, Jr. Downing, Plutt, Harrison, Shaw. About eleven o'clock the wickets were pitched. The toss having been won by the Northern mem bers, they called upon the South to go in. Groome was the first that took the bat, played very cautious ly, but on receiving his ninth or tenth ball, was caught with his lug before wicket, and de clared out, though not without some objection on his |mrt, in which he was joined by others; indeed, it appeared not a very satisfactory decision. Mr Tinson was caught in most beautiful style by Wheat croft, umid considerable cheering; as was Bage by Wright. There was very cautious playing by those in, but it d;d not avail them to any great extent; the fielding was too much for them, particularly the long stop of young Buckley, and the wicket keeping of the elder Tinson. They remained in rather better than one hour, and out of about 72 balls, scored 2-1 runs and one bye. The Northerners then went in. and Wild's batting was much admired. Groome's left-handed bowling was most effective, but was well and cautiously op posed by the former. Syme was less fortunate, though lie took considerable pains, for at his third or fourth bat. he was caught by Bristow, with out making a single run. Marsh's bowling at the commencement was most unfortunate: out of seven balls, six were declared wide. Much was expected from the well known ability of Wheatcroft, but just after hs made his fourth score, he but slighty struck the ball and which caught by Groome. Green's play ing was most admirable, and drew forth great up EIse?so far he scorcd more than anyof the previous ?era. Eyre was caught in most beautiful style by S. Nichols, who, in doing so, made one of the best jumps and turns ever performed?there is an evident improvement in this gentleman's play: he only needs practice to give a good account of himself whenever he takes the field or bat. Young Buckly was rather unfortupate with his bat, forat the second or third ball he was bowled out by Marsh. The fielding throughout was pretty good, except in the early part of this innings, when Warren, as long stop, was rather nervous, or amwared to have ha3 his fingers somewhat greased, tor the ball more than nnce slipped through tliem. (iroome's bowling, us it ever is, was most admirable and called forth great

praise. Not much was expected from the two last lhat went in, but Piatt made one of the best hits of the day, a four run ; indeed, throughout he scored far more than any of the previous players; nor did Shaw fall far behind him; he carried his bat out. This innings occupied one hour and fifty minutes The score was 59 runs, 12 wide balls, 7 byes, one no ball?total 79. The party and their friends adjourned to dinner at Burrows's, where a good and substantial meal was provided?such as cricketers know well how to en |ov after some five or six hours good play?also, with a bountiful supply of the creature comfort to wash it down. These having been amply enjoyed in a brief space?for the noble game of cricket always com mands plavjheforejenjoyment?the parties withdrew to the field. It was now for the Southerns to go in, and they showed that a good dinner and some practice made a material difference. Bristow led the way, accompanied by Bage, Wright and Wheat croft bowling. Bage only scored two, when he was bowled out by Wright. Vinton was run out by an indiscreet call of Bristow without scoring one ; Tinson, junr.. met with a like fate from a similar cause, which drew down considera b,8 censure on Bristow, though, doubtless, it was "J*01"*1 an error of judgment than aught else. Shaw showed some good fielding as short stop; in takinu made some clever summersets, delivering his balls at i l l'm.e with great activity, quickness, and ability Bristow was out upwards of an hour scoring 24, when he was bowled out by Wheatcroft. Marsh's play was most cautious, sum deserved the succesR he met with. Mr. Down ing'* play was cool and collected, but Wheatcrof t caught him just as he was getting warm Mr. Har rison showed the spirit of an old cricketer; though near upon 80 years, was as jively as those not hi,If the number, and bore his bat in triumph from the held, net being called upon to score at all. The ecorc stood at the conclusion of the innings, 69 runs and two byes; which, together with 25 got at the tirst innings, made the total 89; leaving tneir opi>o nen's some to"get on their second innings. On 'he pirtoi the Northerns, Messrs. Syme and vV heatcroft went in for their second innings. At the en J of the third over, it was found that Mr Syme scored three, when he was caught in beauti ful style by the Senior Tinson. Mr. Wheatcroft sbored another three, which, with two wide balls and two byes, and Buckley one, made the Norther ners the winners of one game out of four, as we un derstand, that has been played between them. On the whole, this is one of the best games that has been played for the past two years by this Club; it was played in tme cricket spirit?nothing like gambling, as far as the Club was concerned, Deing attached to it.

In the centre of a beautiful prairie, wliich the wild taste of the Knw Indians have selected for tholr |iernii?nent village, is the rendezvous of the Oregon emigrants, assembled here to complete their flnal organization. One hundred and four wagons, arranged in an oval ring, and linked together with ox chains,form at once an immense caral to enclose the stock, and an impregnable fortress to pro tect them. One hundred more wagons encamped in groups at small distances, completes the troop here as sembled, which dotting the plain with their snow white covers, resounding with a busy multitude plying to and fro in business of preparation; or herding the cloud <>1 stock engaged In devouring the luxuriant gnus, combine to heighten in interest a scene full of animation, sun shine, and excitement. Simultaneously with the depar ture of this body of emigrants, oi whom we are now ta king leave, other bodies have already commenced their jOurney from 8t. Josonh's, Savannah, and Council Bluffs. These, of whose number we have no positive informa tion, by renort ct|ual the emigration by the route of In dependence. Robtif.ry I* Loi iniajta?The "B..ton Rogue <>a zette"ol lait Saturday hiivs : On the 5th insta hard working aid industrious farmer of this parish, named Wm.

VV'e understand that he has made affidavit that on said day he had started from homo with $300 to pay a note at the Ban!. ; ntid that lie had been struck down and left sense less by one of his neighbors, Tlios.

Important from Mexico and Texas. We give additional intelligence to-day from Mext co and Texas. These accounts conlirni the thei existing belief that Mr. Llliott, the British Envoy, i> moving heaven and earth to prevent annexation while Texans are getting wild in favor of the mea sure. It now looks more than probable that Mexi co, if no fresh revolution takes place, will declar< aguinfft the United States, encouraged and in stigated by England and Prance. It is clear to per ceive that we are on the verge of diificulty that niaj lead to a general war. Interesting peom Mexico.?Private letters re ceived from Mexico, state it as a matter almost M ccrtainty, that before Ion* the Mexican government will declare war against the United States. We have seen some of these letters, and they all go to confirm the statement* to this effect made in our paper of yosterdav 9o hostile to this country and to Texas is the tone of pub lie sentiment in Mexico, that it is generally believed the government must either go to war, or suffer an over throw bv a new revolution. In this posture of affairs, it will probably adopt the alternative involving least peril to its members, trusting to the chances which the future may afford to save the Republic from the consequence* of a conflict with this country. Krom one of the letters referred to, dated Vera Cru?, May 23, we hava been kindly permitted to make the fol- J lowing extract " Captain Elliott and a Commissioner of Texas are 8t this place, waiting for tho arrival of letters from Mexico, which, it is said, will arrive to-day. They will sail direct' for tialveston in the French brig "La Perouse." The "Eu rydice" will sail for your port with despatches for the British government. In addition to the propositions made by England to both Texas and Mexico, to settle the relations of these countries to ouch other and to the United States in a manner agreea ble to her policy, 1 am assured thore are inducement* ottered of rather a tempting nature. They are as fol lows: England compromises herself with Mexico to pay ten millions of her national debt, und with Texas she agrees to pay tho wholo of hors, which is computed at eight millions. This, if true?and I have got it from ve ry good authority?proves that England has some deep ly laid project with regard to Texas; one much more im portant to her than tho advantages she might dorive from the simple determination of Texas to remain indepen dent, confirmed by the consent of Mexico. Those English who speak of the controversy between | Mexico and the United States about Texas, never fail to introduce the question ol slavery, and regard its aboli tion in the little republic as a consequence which will speedily follow the determination on her part to remain independent But from what I can learn, I cannot think that any proposition which England may make, however tempting it may bo, can now defeat the annexation. Governor Shannon arrived here yesterday. He will go in the "Anahuac" to New York, unless Com. Connor I offers him a man-of-war. Under ordinary circumstances, this would be done; but it is said the Commodore is un willing at this time to weaken tho forco of his command Mr. Shannon was robbed both going and coming from Mexico."?N. O. Republican, June 3. Further Texas Items.?We give a few addition al items of Texas intelligence brought by the Mc Klm, deeming them not altogether unworthy the atten tion of our readers. The crops in the upper country, and as low down as San Felipe, look very promising, notwithstanding the heavy rains in April prevented the planters from work ing their field* as much as coula have been wished The stands of cotton were all most promising, while between Washington and Lagrange, the fields of wheat were ra pidly ripening, and as late as the 30th ult. gave token o< a most abundant harvest. It has only been recently,we believe, that the planters so low down have turned their attention to the cultivation of wheat, and one field which we saw between llutersville and Independence, on the1 plantation of Captain Fuller, it was thought would yieli) at least thirty bushels to the acre. It will help the citi zen* of southern and middle Texas out wonderfully it they can succeed in the cultivation of this giainto per fect ion, and many of them are itiost sanguine of raising paying crops. Toward* the cultivation of sugar, too. many of the southern planters have this year turned their attention, and as to their full success in this under taking there can be no doubt. On the 14th ult. they had a monster mass meeting nt Bastrop, all in favor of annexation, at which Gen. Burle son presided. Speeches wore made, toasts were drank, an extensive barbecue dinner swallowed, and the enter tainments of the evening, in theatrical parlance, closed with a grand ball, at which all the ladies for thirty mile: around were present. We were not in attendance at the time, but three days uflerwards we saw one of the tallest poles, and one of the largest United States flags flying at I its head, we have ever met with in our travels. The people in this section are almost unanimous in favor ol annexation. They say that they want no proposition | from England?can dispense entirely with her mediation aud pretended good offices. They say, too, that they can get along very well without the interference ol France, in any shape, manner or form?wedded to the in stitutions of the United States, nnd connoctod with hei people by ties of closest kindred, they look to her and her only, for counsel and assistauce. Indepeo dence they do not think themselves able to sustain? J the heavy taxation it would throw upon the planting interests, the present doubtful credit of the coun try, combined with tho slight protection the> can look for at home against Indian aud other borde'i J encroachments, are the arguments thov use against tlii view of the question. When the proclamation of Presi dent Jones was received, recommending the election ot deputies to a Convention, the document was looked upor a? " ?nakey"?we repeat a word which was used in om hearing at Baitrop. That clause in the proclamatio: which suggest* that the members of the Convention niter considering the proposition for the Annexation o' Texas to the United States, should also consider " any olhrr proposition which may be made concerning th< nationality of the Republic," wns regarded a* a cover to some mheme hostile anl foreign to their own wishe*. nnd at first it was openly recommended that no election for members should be held. Itccent explanations, how ever, have probably induced the people of the West to proceed in the matter, and hold their elections a* recom mended. A very neat little theatre ha* been constructed at Gal veston, and regular performances are now given by n company under the management of Mr Newton. Amoim the peilormer* are Mr Clark, a very deserving light co median, Mr. and Mrs Hart, and the dnnseute Miss Carmi ban, and their representations, so far, have been warmly applauded. The theatre itself is small, holding perhap in the neighborhood of two hundred dollars, has two tiers of boxes besides a parquette, and is a tidy, comfortable, and well adapted afl'air in every way. The Prince de Solms arrived at Oalveston on the even | ing of the 2?th ultimo, but could not get through with | hi* business in season to take passage on hoard the McKim. He is now on his way to Europe, and repor' has it that ho has bcon unsuccessful with his colony nt the Comal. It is also said that he expresses himself as i dissatisfied with tho treatment he ha* received in Texas, and that he will not return to the country. From Jamaica.?The British brig Fawn, at Alex andria, from Jamaica, in 18 days, reports the mar kets at Kingston, to be overstocked with American pro duce of all descriptions. No news of importance on the island. i Sheep and Wooi. in Wisconsin.?Our territory la believed to befell adapted to the rearing of sheep and the production of wool for market. Many geutle tlemen, of much experience in this branch of agricultur al industry, as well from the eastern part ol tho United States, as from England and Scotland, are to fully con vinced of this fact, that they have either already em barked pretty extensively iii the business, or intend do ing to the present and succeeding seasons. Previously to 1842, very few sheep had been brought into the terri tory; in the course of that year, several llocks came? say, 184-2 2,610 1843 3,280 1841 10,100 Increase on lti,000, may be put at. t 1,000 Making in tho Territory 20,000 And from present indications, it is believed this num ber will be doubled before the expiration of the present year. In looking over some wool statistics, we find that the aggregate number of sheep in the United States in 1810, wan 19,311,374 ? from which there was sheared in that year, 30,802,114 lbs. wool, boing an average of less than".' lbs. per head. But as about one in four of ever; (lock is a lamb, producing no tloece, full grown shoei will average about 2J lbs. per head peraunuin. From the '.20 000 sheep In this part of the Territory, there will probably be sheared 3d,000 lbs. of wool; ot this quan'it) we may reasonably calculate that 20,000 lbs. will bt brought to llacine, for hale or for shipment; and the re mainner will be either traded oil'at some other place on the lakes or worked up into broadcloths itud satinets at the Wisconsin woolen factories at Burlington and Wa terford.

The lime ha* ar rived lor action, and it ia to be hoped that the new heed ' R? ' 'he aid of our present worthy magistrates, will adopt soma speedy plan for this purpose. No less tliau ten complaints have been made at the police office to"t'jyr of robberies in the public street and taverns near the tombs. We met one old sailor who had just beeu knocked down and robbed in Orange street of several hundred dollars, by some scoundrel prowling about the neighborhood ; another man had beeu enticea into a low porter-houne in Anthony street, and beaten in the most gross and shameful manner. Let this be looked to. Skdl'ction.?A young nnd vory pretty girl came into the police office this morning, and with choking utter ance told a dark, but alas ! too common tale of vile wrong done an iunoccut and simple child. The modest ana earnest manner in which she told her story convinced all present of its truth. The name* of the parties are, how ever, suppressed for the present for reasons which must be obvious. She was born in Liverpool,where her mother died previous to her coming to this country with her father, who had become a dissolute and abandoned char acter. For some months after their unival they lived in meau dependence on the charity of others?oftentimes suffering from want of food and with no means of obtain ing support. At length, in conseouence of some trivial act, her drunken father committed her to the House of Refuse. Her ago was then about fifteen, and after re maining one year she was bound, as is the custom, to a person proteasing to be a gentleman, a married mau and ttie father of a family in New Jersey, for two years ; but no domestic ties could teach him to respect the innocence of one who had been placed under his charge. He mark od her as a victim, and she fell a prey to his fiendlike arts. She has but just escaped and iu ail probability a prosecu tion will be com.icnced by the Directors of the House of Refuge. We have heard several complaints of a similar charac ter to the above in which the injured party had been tliiM bound out at the House of Ilofugc. Sufficient rare has not been taken in separating the inmates in that esta blishment ; but thieves, loaders and unfortunates have all been huddled together. A Minister's Horn: Roiibed.?A large quantity o^ silver spoons were stolen this morning, about 8 o'clock) from the house of Rev. Mr. Pound, No. 30 Fourth street. A young loafer has been seen lurking about the premise* for some time past, who was caught a few weeks ago at the same place under very ruspicious circumstances. UrnGLARv.?The store, cornor of Third avenue and Cighty-scvciith street, was broken open last night, and robbed of $300 ; consisting in part of a $100 bill on the Boston Bank, one $30 bill on the Fulton Bank, and four $20 bills on the Orange County Bank.
