Notwithstanding the pro tracted drought, the very low stage of the river, und ! the indication of sickness in this neighborhood, our city | remains very healthy thus far. Causes, not iscident to the locality of the place, did, a few weeks ago, produce a fatality among some two or more persons here, but since these have passed away, we have the pleasure of knowing that our city is healthy, especially in a time when disease visits town anil country alike. ?

Norwich and Worcester fell off ] per cent ; Long Island, j; Canton, j; Reading Railroad, J; Morris Canal, 4; Farmers' Loan, J; Pennsylvania S'g, j ; Harlem im proved, 4; and Mohawk closed firm at yesterday's prices. The improvement in the stock market experienced within the past few days, has beon produced, principal ly, by the change which has taken place in the minds of ! stock operators, in relation to our affairs with Mexico. ? j It matters very little with these speculators, what the { actual position of the U. States and Mexico may be in re- ' lation to war; it is the impression upon the public mind ! that affects the interests of those engaged in depressing ' or Inflating prices of fancy stocks. The advices received i from Mexico, by the Relampago, at New Orleans, from Vera Cruz, had a very unfavorable effect upon the stock market, and prices steadily declined, until advices ten days later, by the Water Witch, came to hand. The advices per the Water Witch produced a wonderful improvement in the stock market, and prices have since been steadily advancing. The latest accounts from Mexi co are considered by many, to be even more belligerent than those received by the Relampago ; but so far us the j stock market is concerned, the effect of the two accounts ' has been widely different. The influence of the various j reports from the South, in relation to hostilities, upon movements in Wall street, is a very good index of the feeling among those deeply interested in the result of the existing difliiulties between this country and Mexi co. The fortunes of most of them are at stake, and eve ry rumor and report is carefully weighed and consider ed. It may appear to a casual observer, that the specu lators of Wall street are a reckless, desperate set of men; but every man among them makes use of every circum stance, favorable or unfavorable, to advance his interest! aud nothing is done, no movement of any importance made, without first carefully calculating chances, and operating accordingly. The prospects and probabilities of a war with Mexico are closely watched by these shrewd speculators, and the complexion of the stock mar' ket shows the impression upon the minds of the ope rators.

[Correspondence of the V ierii<ji Washington f August 25, 18-45 We thall give you the near' 8t a^ogy of a lctler to-day, with a promise of tv ogood ones to-morrow. We have taken a little exr ursjon Gj reconnoissance in Maryland, and an w e generally travel with one eye open, we challep ge Nnt Willis to produce as readable a letter att'_.rajourneyof 3 ^00 mlie8) agWe can dress U|? tor t\je readers of the Herald, from a morning ride of twenty-five miles in the cars. We confess, Gener al, that it is the matter-of-fact, com prehensive, ur iiversally observant style of the Herald , from which. in our service, we can be use ful by and Y ,y, even as an auditor in Hagner's place if called tf > go high a station. But enough of that. Young Elliott will, most probably, remain in jail till the \jecember term. We yield to the judgment of the court, and the decision of the counsel of the itriso ner, to waive an appeal to Judge Cranch, at leas', for the present. We maintain, however, our gro'jud, that the crime of Elliott is as much the re su' t of public opinion and public morals, aa of hasty 1* ifsion, and reiterated ana persevering provocation. And that in refusing him bail, the Court has boldly led off a step in public morals, at the unexpected ex panse of the prisoner. As the example has been starred, we ho|>e it will be followed up hereafter, though the offending party may be a great man, in stead of a wild and reckless boy. The Cabinet had a council last evening (Sunday) upon Mexican alf'airs. It would be a profitable lea son if our forces on the Texan frontiers should be cut up by the Mexicans in detail, as were our few parcels of troops by the Florida Indians. If the Mexicans are worth the powder that would blow them up, they will be able to do it. But they are of no account in a surprise ; and they will, probably, " march up the hill and then march down again,', like the King of France. The Cabinet session was of course on the question of an immediate addition, to our Texian land forces; und there is some talk of a messenger having been sent down with instruc tions of co-operation and combination with the fleet in the Gulf; but of this we are not officially advised. What we wrote you about the change of Govern ment in the Georgetown College was true ? it is ap prehended that this change will be prejudicial to the Institution ? it is feared that it was injudicious. Certain it is, the College could have no better ad ministration than the old one; we only hope the new one may be as popular and as good. Dh.timore, Aug. 26, 1845 The news from Texas of the approach of a Mexican army, and the requisition on the Governor of Louisiana for troops, caused some stir among our citizens yester day morning, but it all seemed to be forgotten before evening, so little is the estimate placed on Mexican abil ity to harm our little army now stationed in Texas. The hot weather of July is down ou us again, without its accompanying breezes, the thermometer yesterday for the greater part of the day, ranging from 87 to 9? de grees, The election to take place in this State on the 1st 0^ October, for members of Congress, Legislature, See , ex cites but little attention, and from present appearance*, will be rather an inanimate atl'air. Neither whigs or dem ocrats can raise any enthusiasm among their friends ou the subject, consequently, 110 public meetings have yet been held. The Native American Convention, which has been try ing to get a quorum for the past six months, is advertised to meet to-night, for the purpose of nominating candi dates. But three or four wards will be represented, but I learn an effort will be made to raise funds to start a new Native American paper. The State Reform Convention meets to-morrow, and should the slarery questi n bo broached, we will have a storm. A special session of the City Court is, I learn, to be called on Tuesday next, for the trial of the proprietor* of the .Sun newspaper, for an alleged contempt of Court, in telling their honors that impartiality, purity and hon or, are the requisites for juuicial station. This Court has been so long accustomed to do as it pleased, regard less of public opinion, that it has become odious in the sight of all classes and conditions of the people; and if they would only resign their stations, a general jubilee would take place on the strength of it. Let a man like Pooler commit 1111 offence, and the community are at once satisfied that there is no punishment to be awarded him. The contemj>t trial will cause a great commotion throughout the city, though it is thought by some that the Couit will endeavor to dismiss the case as toon a* possible, being, it is said, anxious to escape from the dif ficulty which their hasty action in the case has brought upon them. The Maiikeh.? There was a larger supply of Beeve* at market, yesterday, than usual, and a slight decline in prices has taken place, in consequence of which butch ers purchased more freely. The offeiings at the scales amounted to 750 head, of which 1K9 were driven to Phil adelphia, 43 remain unsold, and the balance, 618 head, were sold at prices ranging from $.1 dO a $2 50 per 100 lbs. on the hoof, equal to $2 50 a $4 75 net. The ave rage rate is about $2 181. The market for Howard street Klour is without change. I note sale* of 400 barrels at $4 50, which is the prevailing rate. Alio, of 100 barrels fine, at $4 25. The receipt price of *u per is $4 374. Old is in very limited request at $4 37J. City Mills Hour is generally held at $4 50, but I hear of no transactions. The stock is very light. The supply of Wheat at market to-day is quite small. The demand, however, is limited, and prices remain much a* last week. I quote good to prime reds at bOa 86 cents, and ordinary to good 75 a 80 cents. Ordinary to good white wheats i>eli at 85 a 90 cents, and family flour parcels at 93 a 98 cents. Corn has advanced. Sales to-day at 50 a 51| cents for white, and 64 a 56 cents for yellow. The de mand for Whiskey has improved and, prices are firmer. Sales to-day of hhds. at 22 a 22 J cents, and of bbls. at 23J Philadelphia, Aug. 30, 1844. The nominations of the democratic county convention were concluded yesterday, and a ticket waa formed, which I fear will not be succeuful. In the city and county conference, Andrew Miller ? well known as the author of a letter denouncing native ism, has been nominated as the democratic candidate for Recorder of Deeds. When the nominationa are eomple* ted, which will not be before Thuraday next, I will send yeu a list of them. The democratic city delegates mat last evening, and nominated Col. James Page, as the can. didate of the party for Mayor. The Colonel is well known as the best postmaster Philadelphia has had for twenty years. He is a sound democrat, a polished gen tleman. and mu active soldier. The democrats have in him a capital and highly popular candidate, and if they make their other nominations for the city with equal in telligence and discrimination, they will give the whigs and natives a severe shaving, if not a thrashing. The whigs of the county, and also of the city and county, met last evening, but have not made their nomi nations. Wesley Flavel, who was convicted some time ago of the murder of his nieoe, and wai pardoned by Qovernor I'orter on condition that he would leave the State for life, was arrested to-day by Recorder Vaux, on informa tion laid before by the deputies of the Attorney General. The charge preferred again t him is, of course, a violation of the condition referred to, which it is alleged vitiates the pardon granted to him, and renders him liable to the punishment to which ho was sentenced by the Court.? Vou may remember that a question was raised on hit pardon belore one of the Judges of the Supreme Court, shortly after it was granted, and that it was decided the Governor, as the fountain of legal mercy, might annas such a condition to his pardons. The question will now be, "docs a violation 01 the condition, annul the pardon?" As this is probably the first case ever occurring in thia State, its decision will be looked for with much mtereit. The hearing before the Recorder will take place on next Thursday morning. Snl?? of litm'ki at Philadelphia. Kik?t Board, Aug. 36.? 100 Wilmington H.

Mayor Da vit, ij-c., <}-c. The National Theatre, the only regular theatre in Boston, was opened last evening, with the comely of " Time Works Wonders.'' The house was well filled, but not crowded; and the play passed off in tolerable style. Several new members have been added to the company; but most of the actors possossod of any (prink ling of talent, are all old stagers. Messrs. Thorne, Gil_ bert, Cartlich. and Hamilton, stage manager, all favor ites. though rather threadbare, still have to do the heavy work. The interior of the house has been tastefully fitted up, and looks remarkably well, even including those gas lights, which used to dicker to dimly, that re" course to the old fashioned tallow, seemed at one time inevitable. Mr. Pelby, the proprietor of the Theatre, i? known by nil players as one of the most gentlemanly, generous, even tempered Christians on this side of Jeru salem There is a rumor in circulation, that he attend* the Methodist prayer and class meetings very regularly. This will, perhaps, account for the fact that the Theatre has been greatly improved in its liquor department within the past year. The Washington Theatre, a kind ol cock-loft, which was once a candy saloon, is also open, and is doing n fair business for a small place. ? Kendall's Boston Museum, though small, is the only place of theatrical amusement, in the upper end of the city? which the self-styled highly intelligent and respec table portion of the community patronise. It has always done a first rate business, simply because it is not named a Theatre; and also because it is very neat and clean, and the pieces represented are generally unexceptiona ble, in a moral point of view. The ships Moselle, from Havre, and the Barnstable, from Liverpool, which arrived hereon Sundav, brought full cargoes of merchandise. French goods, before the arrival ol the Moselle, were in mnch demand here, being lighter, and better adapted for warm weather, than Bri tish fibrios.
