Ryne, according to the quick trip 6f the Cambria, is due this afternoon at Boston. She was to have left Liverpool on the 5th inst. Our Relations with Mexico. The statements relative to the present position of our relations with Mexico are confused and contra dictory. This arises in some measure from the vio. lent partizan feeling whicli is manifested by the t,wo great political i>arties in this country relative to the measures adopted by our government for the con samm I'ion of the nnnex ?ition of Tex is. Every ru mor relative to the movements in Mexico is seiz>d np in bv certain of the whig journ.U and distorted or exaggerated so as to contuse and district the pub lic mind. We will endeavor to state the exact con dition of afTairs as accurately as possible. The last advices from New Orleans inform us that the Mexican Consul at that port had received offi cial instructions from the Mexican Secretary of State, informing him that the relations between that government and the United States had reached sucli a point as required the immediate cessation of all official intercourse; that their friendly relations were at an end, and that all .Mexicans were to be directed to take such measures for the security of their per sons and property, as they might deem expedient. ? It is quite certain, that in New Orleans the general opinion was, that war had been declared by Mexico; and the intelligence which pours in upon Ui from all quarters, confirms the belief that the crisis which we have been awaiting for some time past, has at length arrived. We should not be at all surprised to hear in a few days, ol some decisive blow having been struck by Mexico, <md that the v%rti unu mureu uuiuuiruccu. The ^overnmeatorgsn at Washington, in referring to certain various and contradictory rumors rela:ive to the disposition of the United States troops sent to the Texan frontier, declares in positive terms that these troops are not to he withdrawn and tint it expected (u hear by the next arrival, that General Taylor hud advanced with the infantry under his command, as far as Corpus Chi ls'i, and perhaps ;>enetra.ted the country farther from the Gulf coast. Colonel Tn igg?, in command of the dragoons, had advanced through Austin tar. ther west, to the vicinity, perhaps, of the Alamo ? We have elso reason to believe that the Textans themselves are now in uving for the purpose of co operating with our troops. This is, we percene, si ited by the Union. Ttis instruct i'jnn issued by ?h- United : Go vernm"nt to th ir troops on the Tex an frontier, re strict 'hem entirely t ? defensive course of action, so long i.s Mexico remains quiet. 13ut from all pre sent appearances it is very evident that Mexico wil^ forcibly resist the measure adopted by our government, to maintain the boundary line at claimed by Texas. The demagogues in Mexico who now manage her affairs, are stirring up with the greatest activity the belligerent feelings of the people. Each is trying to out-herod his rival in this business. The Mexican people, themselves, ignorant, vindictive, and misled and excited by Bri tish agents, are in a very fitting condition to be ope rated upon by these ambitious and violent leaders. Thus, then, stand at this moment our relation with Mexico. We do believe that war is nearer than mtny imagine. Of course, we cannot have any fear for the issue. But the public voice begins 10 call louder and louder upon the President and his cabinet to summon Congress together. Ought they not at once to take this step Canada. ? Trie CuuJi pipers contain nothing of m ich interest to other parts of the world, although there are some matters discussed by the public jour nals of that province, of no slight importance to themselves. The railroad mania seems to have extended to that part of the Empire, and had the Canadians but the means, they would not be behind in such speculations. Due regard is paid to the Western trade, which has become of such great importance, that a strong rivalry exists between the carriers, via the St. Lawrence, and those on the American side, to secure it. There is a project talked of at present, of connecting Lake Ch impl.uti and L ike Ontario by railroad, which m <y be regarded as a bold stroke towards diverting from Montreal and Quebec, a large share of the trade of Western Canada. If ever this is effected the great results expected to proceed from the Wel land Canal, in favor of the Canadians, will be much neutralized. Hardly any commercial operations are taking place in Canada now ; several attempts have been lately made to force off goods at auction, but to no purpose. Stagnation in trade is as natural in Canada at this season, as the appearance of the shad fiv is a month efirlier; there is no remedy but to wait with pa tience. We observe the weather has been very warm at Quebec ? the thermometer last week ranging from 90 to 95 there. This comes nearly up to our New York hot Su day. A trial which caused much excitement has ended in the acquittal of two young men charged with mur der in the last election disturbances. Party feeling was keenly at work to procure a conviction, and also to secure an acquittal. Since the notorious verdict of the jury in 1K37. acquitting Jobin of the murder of the lamented Lieut. Weirf it is quite comnfon in Montreal to assail the integrity of iunes, ?nd we fear it is not always done without good ground. In the case just tried, the prisoners were acquitted? a regular triumph for the popular cause. The 7lst regiment had subscribed C30 Is. t>d. for the relief of the Quebec suflercrs The ^uin pro mises to excotd thirty thousand |?ounds in < rrea! Britain and Ireland alone. The Montreal Agricultural Society has published a list of pietniums to be awarded at their exhibition on the 2d October next. They can afford to be libe ral tins yenr,as this Society has the disposal of 4.15C voted by the Assembly for uie encouragement agriculture. A strong rivalry exists between steamboats on the 8t. Liwrencfi this season. The passenger trade during the arrival of emigrants from Eu rope, is a valuable one, between Quebec and Kingston, 0 W. But a few years ago, the route oetween Quebec and Montreal was in the hands of a monopolizing and greedy set of men, who had not a single thought about the poor travel lers, only to bleed them of as much money as they could. Now, however, it is altogether different ? Splendid opposition boats have been put on, and pas sage is extremely low, the old monopolizers oiinrin" passage for a fourth of the old rates, in order to break down the opposition, which takes passeugers at ten dollars each in the cabin? their rivals for a mere song. Emigration into Canada. ? There arrived at Que bec to the 9th lust. 22,221 emigrants ; to the same period last fear 16,681. Increase in twelve months 6.690 ; showing that the repeal movement injreland, which had it* effect last yenr, has sinre lost much ot itt influence The Ejections ? Returns received up to the present time of tne recent elections are by no means complete ; neither can they be fully relied upon. ? The content throughout appears to be entirely be tween in*1 two old parties, whigs and democrats? apparently no abolitionists stirring in the matter? ui least none arc recorded. According to present appearances the whigs do not poll such a large vote as a: the Presidential ehc tion of last tall ; this may give the democrats some little advantage, but otherwise the parties may stand very much as they were previous to the present con test. For Kentucky last year the liouse of Representa tives in Congress stood live whigs and five demo crats. According to present appearances it will this year stand the same, owing to the whigs having two candidates in one district, otherwise it would stand six whigs to four dem-^crats ? again of one. Indiana stood last year with eight democrats and two whigs; this year, after a hard struggle on the part of the whig party, they remain the same. In North Carolina the election has resulted in the choice of five democrats certain, and two others re ported to have been elected. If the latter be correct the present members will stand thus ? Six democrats to three whig*, a gain of one on the part of tie de mocrats. In Alabama there is en election for Governor and other State officers, in addition to members ot Con gress. For the former office there are two demo cratic candidates, who have a very close race to gether, but the independent democratic candidate (Martin,) has the majority, much owing to the support he has reived from the whig party ? Tue democratic ticket so tar appears to prevail throughout this S'at>% and the general impression is ihit it will be successful. If so the democrats will have a gam of one ; the previous House .-landing six democrats to one whig. Tennessee is looked upon as the most important of the present elections. It may be recollected that President Polk was defeated by the whigs in this, his native State, when candidate for Governor in 1843, by about -lOO.votes; but tit the Presidential flection ot 184-1 that vote was much diminished, Clay having only 113 majority over Polk. There fore, the present state of party feeling ill this State is looked to with considerable interest. The elec tion was to commence on tfie 7th inst , but up to the present time no accounts have been received from this quarter. We have no returns from these States as to the different Legislatures whereby to form an opinion of the future characfi" of the Senate of the United States, indeed there appears to he a general apathy prevailing as to these returns, even in the immedi ate scenes of action, and among the Abolitionists in particular, as to the result, which cannot be readily solved. Stramek Great Britain. ? This monster of the Jeep ?till continues to be thronged with visit >rs About 5tKX) persons have visited her since she ar rived on Sunday last. It has been stated in some of the Boston papers that she was intending to make a pleasure tri^ to (.ieoige's Banks, at a charge to pau.-engers of $10 a ticket ? a report for which there is no foundation. She remains here until the 30th. About a dozen persons tiave already entered their name* as passengers for the next trip.

Sphmsi. Si ssioxs- Augiut I a.? Before hts Honor the Major, and ildermen Brady and Tappan? The only cafe of interest that occupied the retention of the Court tills morning, was one in which Joseph Onlirk, the well known militia fine collector, was the complainant, against two young men named Gdward B. Lawrence and Edward Brodie, for having very politely . or what he considered rather uncivilly, put nim out of the store in wlu<-h ihey are employed as clerks, lit the contend Canal an<l Green streets. From the evidence adduced, it api>or? that On lick went fothe store for the purpose of collecting a fn e from E B Lawrence tor neglecting to attend parade or military doty. On the part of the oefeSr.e, it was con tended that the process which Oulick went to servo was illegal and void, on which ground the defendants hail a peilect right to eject complaint from the premises, which 1 was done >ts respectftill} as it could be. and that the Court Martial writ had expired, as it had not been properly re turned Irom term to term, while Gillick exhibited no au thority for hi* attempted atre?t It was al-o alleged tor ilie defence that Oulick had previously offered to settle the fine for 74 cents. The Court, after hearing the case, ordered Mr Law ranee to pay a fine of fM, and Mr Brodie fli, when .fttdpe f ynch Intimated to the rottrt, that he should carry up the case to the Supreme Court, with a view of setting aside the decision of ilUa Court Our thin with Me*l?o-D?cl*r?tlon of War ! The mail With New Orleans pa|*r? of the 7th in. slant, brings the following important cemirmatc ry iatelligence ol' the expected declaration of war by the Mexican government fVrom the N. O. Picayune, Aug. 7 ] It is confidently stated that Senor Arriuigoiz, th> Mexican Consul nere, tins received orders from hi 'overnmeut tn close his business in this city? and further, that he will sail la two or three days for V'er ? Cruz One report has it that his departure will be the signal tor the publishing of a lion-intercourse ,ict and another that a iormal declaration ot war is to follow. A few days will tell the story. Since the above was written, we hear it stated that the declaration ot war by Mexico is really in town, and that it will be published by some one or more of the city papers this morning It this be true, we shall see what Mexico will do after taking a step so rash. That she will issue letters ot marque and re prisal? attempt to turn loose a Bet nl toreign priva teer* upon our commerce? has been hinted at, anil with good show of reason. There are not sailor enough, put them altogether, in her contemptible marine to man a single sloop ot war effectivrly, anil we trust th it our Government will at once declarr every vessel engaged under Mexican colors, with out the lawful compliment, ot natives on board, a .irate, and string up every foreigner tothe yard arm The paues ot Vattel may not afford such authority, tint V attel knew but little of Mexico when he wrote, and strong eases require prompt and forcible argu ments. On land, the course of the L nited States is ulain enough W.th the regular troops now in iex as an<i the volunteers ready to start at a moment s warning, we have a force sufficient to crush any miserable apology ot an army Mexico can concert trate between San Luis Potosi and the Rio <*'?nde for three months to come; it would be an act ot char ity to take the entire army ot our gasconading neigh hors prisoners, to save tht m trom the starvation thai h is long been preying upon them. Possession ol the harbors of California? n matter which a frigate ind sloop ot war could easily effect, might also bj taken, and if all these plans are carried out, we shall have the enemy at our gates suing for peace, betort a vear is over their tieads. (Krom the N. O. Rep. Aug. 7.] The schooner Itelampago, which recently arrived at t lie Ralize from Vera Cruz, came up to the city on Tuesday evening. Our previous acconnts by this vessel were very limited, based as they were upon verbal statements, and a short extract trom one ot the few letters which reached the city in company wiili the despatches for the State Department. It was not until a late hour yesterday that we re ceived the letter, an extract from which fol lows, containing the official communications, a translation of which is the subjoined. The letter is from a friend and correspondent in Vera Cruz, and enclosed the commu nications, which are trom the Minister of War nid Marine of Mexico, ft appears by these, that .he previous intimations of the intention ot Mexico to declare war against this country have assumed ? positive and determinate shape. No simple act of non-intercourse, it appears, will give sufficient vent to the pent up indignation ot our Mexican neighbors Nothing short of a war? a war of invasion too-that contemplates among the least ot its triumphs the re conquest of Texas-will appease their belli"eren feelings and heal their wounded honor. Well, it it w to be, we must prepare ourselves for the struggle We hope bv this time that our fleet is iu the Gu t we know tint our little army is ai its post I he Water Witch, which may be looked tor every day, will bring us full particulars. We have reason to believe that the despatches to the Department of State at Washington, brought by the llelainpago, communicated the Fact ot w ar hav ing been declared by the Mexican government. In a still closer view of a war with Mexico, we lake occasion lo repeat what we said the other day, as to the course which should be pursued in such an event It we are to be embroileo in a conflict wit.i Mexico we hoi>e that the scale upon which the con tent will be pro.seci.ted by us will bear some relation to the power and dignity of this nation. Let the the assertion of our might as well as of our right bv so complete, that among, the other results of a bin liant campaign, no vestige *ot European will remain in Mexico to tempt her into a repetition : of the fatuity of going to war with us j The following is the letter and documents reter rtC^ t0 ' Veba Ceui, July 21, 1H45.

Messrs. Arnaud, Douvry, and Garry, sang again last night as well, if not better, than last Monday ; in fact, the second representa tion of " Les Huguenots" may be considered a real tri umuli for these hve artists. M'me llicher acted again, V bain last night, and did it also better than at the nrst , -presentation, for she did not appear as timid, and sang more fully than she had done belore. A young artist, M'lle Douvry, daughter of the first basso, who for the first time since she entered the stage, had received.in the Hueuenots, a part in an opera, came belore the audience, and although much timidity was nerceptible at both representations, she, neveit.ioless, exhibited i very vure vocal emission, which certainly will, with practice and study, make hera distinguished sing or M'lle. Douvy had only a few lines to sing, but that was sufficient to show what she may become some day We can ouly re|>eat of Mr. lJeinard, what we have always said of him. Mr. Bernard is an artist of great talent; we have seen him in nearly all the operaa, and in many vaudevilles, and he ha* always appeared perfectly at home in all of them. Such an artist as Mr. Bernard, is a treasure for a company. We would consider it li mit to conclude this urticle without laying a word of the orchestra, and of its leader. Mr. TrOvost ha* been olten praised by the public , lie amply deserves it, for no musi cidii ever took so much pains at lie does, and lew ever succeeded Letter. A* for the orchestra, there is as in 'lie chornsses of the company, a perfect ensemble harmu nioae which eKCites the admiration of all the spectators, -.ome of the orchestra were taxed rather strongly in the "Hugnenots;" among other* we will mention Mr. Elie,

he ur?t violin, who accompanied on his instrument \lr \rnaud, in the song of the first act. Mr Kyle, w o played again beautifully on the llute the introduction to the second act, and Mr. Cicsar Spolti. who accompanied on the bassoon , the duo between M'me Casini and Mr i his, as had been announced, was the last night of the French Opera Company at tho Park The artists will take a week.tolrecruit themselves from their arduous la hor*. and will resume their representations at Niblo son Monday, the -J5th inst. , The English company re open* on Monday night, with Mr. Simpson as director. The array of talent composing this company, most of which has been engaged at great expense in Europe, will not fail to bring extensive pa tronage to the Park. Among the artists engaged lor this season, we have Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Kean, late Ellen Tree ; Miss D'Arcy, Sig llophino Lacy, Mr Reeve, Mr Brough, Mrs. Mowatt, and .Mr. Hackett. Other artists who have also been engaged, are daily expected, anc will shortly make their appearance. These are Mrs Bianc. late Miss Faucitt, Miss Gordon, and Mr. Bland from the principal English theatres ; also, Mr. llobeits, from the theatre Covent Garden. Mr. Charles Bass has arrived in the Queen of the West. Mr. and Mrs. Charles Kean, mentioned above, are expected to arrive in tne iti hernia to-morrow or next day. Mr Charles Kean is very anxious to be considered as the leading member ol the drama, but although he stands very high in the theatrical world, his reputation is not equal to that ol his latnei, the elder Kean. Mrs. Charles Kean, formerly known 111 this country uudor the name of Miss Ellen free, is a beautiful and very chaste actress, and has not her equal in talent on either side of the Atlantic. They will, doub.t less, prove a very great attraction to all amateurs ol the atricals. The " Lady of Lyons," a " Roland lor an Oli ver," and a grand jtas de deux by tho two Misses \ allce will be produced for the opening of tho season. Bowery Theatre.? Never did a theatre moet with so unlimited and steady h patronage as this one has since its re-opening. The house, although the largest in the United States, is crammed every night and far from abat. ing, the patronage extended to it seom* to incrcaso more and more. We congratulate Mr. Jackson upon his un precedeuted success. In building the theatre and orna menting it, Mr. Jacksou has omitted nothing, nor has he ?pared any expense to give it character and splendor. Last nighc three pieces, William Tell, the Golden Farmer, and the Sleeping Beauty, wore e.cted at this thea tre, and all the artists wh. appeared in these differcn plays deserve commendation for thoir good acting. J he [hara.-ter <>f William Tell, the Hero ot Switzerland, wa particular)*- w*il delineated by J. It Scott, and the asso ciations of love of liberty and patriotism aonnecteJ win that tragedy. were received by the audience with per.oci pli.er/.y. The Golden Farmer was not less successful and Messrs Hadaway and Clarke were also much ap plauded by tho public. Tho Sleeping Beauty canio last and there was no danger of her state ol lethargy ing over the audience, for bu'sts of applause rent tr> nousa at tho view of the splennid sceneries and drosse: used In this grand spectacle On all sides wore hear exclamations oa their beauty, and from the pit to tin gallery all seemed again perfectly electrified by s,' aorgeous a sight. The artistes also ac'ed very well in ? Ins play. Tho same bill is to be repeated to-night, un<i will, 110 doubt, be again largely attended, and meet, as before, with the warmest approbation of the audiencc. Castle Garof.v? For the last time positively, the Som-.Vwi-Buli-Ole will be represented to-night. This is one of the burlesque operas acted by tho Ethiopian com pany ; these operas, full of the most comical incidents attract every evening great crowd to the Garden. Miss Pray and Mr. Parsloe, are todanco again thi* eveuing and the overtures to Gustavu* and La Fille du Regiment will also be played by the orchestra. The visitor to the Garden should not forget to cast a glance at the splendid CGsmoramaa, which well deserve his attention for their beauty and accuracy. Nibio's.?" The Village Doctor" and "Born to Good Luck, ''are the capital pieces presented thi* evening, ii which Placide and Brougham appear for the last time.? Placide's Bonca-cur, and Chippendale's Baron, in tho for mer domestic story, are really artistical delineations.? " Our Mary" has also an excellent part in it. Brougham in the latter piece keeps the house ie a roar. Nothing has been witnessed like his Paddy ORatferty sinco poo' Power* day*. Monday Rice appears in a characteristic burlesque. Vauxuall Gaiidkn. ? The Vauxhall continues to lie well patronized. The performance which drew forth great applause for tho last two nights, is to be repeated again this evening. Oo and see. Palmo's Opkra House.? The German Company gave their second representation last night. It was pretty wel' attended, and the performance went off quite well. We believe these artists will become very popular among their countrymen in this city, for some of the actors and actresses appear to possess talent. On Monde} they will give the play called "Johannus Guttenberg." The Anglesea Singers had a very large and highly re spectable audience at Palmo's theatre on Thursday even in<{, and gave gieut satisfaction. They give their second and final Concert at the same house this evening. Mi. Blake took a benefit at tho Pittsburg Circus on Tuesday last. Miss A.

Thero is business enough for an increase of iioatf, and the subject of a new line, to run from aix in the morning until six in the evening- half hour boats? und from that period hour bunts until 13 at night, is now arranging. This line, it will be perceived will not run in opposition to the present line? but leaving at differ ent periods of the day, and charging the same prices, will greatly serve the convenience of such of our mer chants as chose to reside on the Island, and at the same time verymatcrially increase tho value of property there, berries should always be so regulated as to serve the convenience of the public.

A gentleman in passing down Barclay street, on Thursday evening, about 11 o'clock, whs pursued bjttn ill-looking fellow, who came out of Church street, who probably intended to rob him. He, however, escaped by superior fleetnesa. He looked on all sides for the watch, in case of necessity, but from Uroadway to Greenwich street, not a single watchman was to be seen. Cases of knocking down and robbing in the streets, havo become quite frequent of late, and the watch should be ready tor the protection of our citizens. We notice that two of tho city watch have already been discharged for neg lect of duty and it is to be hoped that our vigilant chief of police will pursue his investigations till the new force is purged of all that provents it l>eing a protection to the city.

To explain hit motive*, we offer a few remarks respecting Wyatt, for whom, although he appear* to be (till impenitent, wo think undue ay m jittuy hat been excited, perhaps partly because that iJreeu, the reformed gambler, authori/edly published some account of his former life, which might injure hlin on his trial, provided there wus any chance of his being acquitted of the Clime of murder. We take thia oppor tunity to express our opinion, that most of the Tacts stated by Gieen, he did not loaru directly from Wyatt, and that he did not ariive at hit information in tucn a man ner ns gave him a right to publish it. But we know that Wyatt lias made disclosures. In a letter, written by him to another convict, whilst engaged in getting up a murderous plot, he taid, " I muidered two moo last spring I killed one man for his money ; the other was an omcer who attempted to t3ke me. I shot him dead." A constable was shot through the head in Ohio, iu the spring of 1643, in the presence of one hundred citizens, and the criminal made hit cscupu; and a traveller up pears to have been murdered for his money , in the wooai near the Mautnee river, about the same time. Well, this Wyatt it, properly enough, placed in a large airy room, fastened to the lloor with a light chain, long enough to allow him to exercise, and it exempt from laBbr. Contrary to former usage, his convict drett wa>: taken'olf, and lie dressed up like a gentleman, when ta ken to the court house, to be arraigned lor the murder of (jordon. Perhaps this waa right. He it allowed bettei food than other convicts, the use of newspapert, and oth er privileges, incompatible with discipline, and that might furnish facilities for hit escape. He is made the hero, the lion of the [dace. He sees company frequently through the day, it visited by ladies and gentlemen, citi zen* and strangers, and converses with them freely; whilst the poor ne.art-broken father, who comes ull the way from Ohio, to see a w retried sou in prison, is nut allowed an interview. In view oi these facts, it is stiunge that other convicts, tired of prison lifo, bu>I having yet long sentences to serve out, should seek to create some variety in their monotonous existence, and to become lions a la mode de Wyatt .?Cayuga Patriot. To the Editor of the Herald. ? It is necessary to direct the public attention to the disgraceful pro ject of opening a street through the Episcopal Burial ground in Hudson street ; and we have rend with much satisfaction, an article in your psper ol yes terday, entitled "Removing of the Dead. We had j always understood that Episcopalians were distill I guished for their respect for the dead, and that the I desecration of grave yards was a practice which ; they were prompt to discountenance and eondemu. Can it he nossible. that the love of filthy lucre has ; so prevailed over the moral sense and right feeling of the vestry of Trinity Church, that what they have i been ever ready to condemn in others, they are ! about to practise themselves 1 If the vestry of j Trinity are thus inclined to trample upon the rights, j and to outrage the feelings of their brethren, shall , they be permitted to do so, at least, without a strug gle to prevent itl We should like to know what right the vestry of Trinity Church have to s??ize and sell the land, for the use ot which, as a place of inter ment for the dead, enormous sums have been paid to them. If they did not intend that this land should continue to be used as a burial place, was not their receipt of this money a fraud upon the relatives and friends of the deceased who paid it 1 They are now in the almost daily receipt of money for this purpose ? do they suppose that it is paid to them, by indivi duals, merely for the poor privilege of obtaining a resting place ot a lew weeks or months, for the re mains of their departed relatives and friends'! But again, we put the question, what legal right have the vestry of Trinity Church, after devoting this land to tfie purpose of a buriul ground, for a valuable consideration, to appropriate it to any oth er, without the consent of those whose money has been paid to them, and who have vested rights in the matter'? We pause for a reply. Itisourearn est hope that those who are interested, and their number is not few, will bestir themselves unon this occasion. Let us see whether this powerful corpo ration can ride rough shod over the community, treating the legal rights, as well as the natural feel ings of our citizens, with equal contempt. A want of respect for the dead is a standing reproach to our countrymen, and, it is to be feared, not without some foundatidh. Whether it shall be glaringly ex hibited in the present instance, remains to be seen. Several. The Small Pox Raging in Vermont ?
