Mi W YORK HERALD. >.-vv Vorh. Sundnr, Auk"" 31? ~ Onr Foreign H? l?tlon?? f),.. foreig < relations of the I nited States, parti cul .rly with Mexico, hp- in a most interesting and >r in .1 j" >-it ion. It if utterly impossible from the t-h it >r of our latest intelligence, to ascertain will pred ion whether the two countries are ai war or not, or whether they may not he in a belligerent po sition in a very few days, i )ur i ist accounts from Mexico are brought down 0 the >th of August. We have seen letters front 1,t;i Crux and from the city of Mexico of the lates' jaif These letters talk with confidence of a war ,ei ,v*i'ii the two countries?that it ?s inevitable, and i the Mexican troops are ordered to proceed to ! utier of Texas, in order "to take up a jatsttion . ? Rio Grande at once. Some state that 1 I ojct of a loan of fifteen millions has already n |i . -.-d bv Congress, and that it the money is ?,?t found in Mexico they will lie able to negotiate ucTSsf illy in England. This, however, wants con firmation. One letter which we have seen from Mexico,st ites that Hustaniente is to be the Cotntnan Je: in-chief?Filesola to be Major-General? Vri.-ta to have command of the cavalry?Paredes (,? la the chief of the infantry?and that an army of c, or :?o,(HK) men is now in a state of organi tion, nti ready to march upon Texas and the Uni [. i| States. These are the accounts which we have r.v-pived direct from Vera Cruz and Mexico. Yet i vto is not a great deal of confidence placed in ; ir accuracy, and doubts are still entertained, .ii nust many persons, whether Mexico is able to try on a war. Our government at Washington, then, h 've no farther information than that which the public already possess. Sometimes they think th.it Mexico will be foolish enough to declare war? at other times, the contrary ; yet in the midst of this difficulty, the President and his Ministers are putting the annv and navy of the United States in the strong, eft position imaginable; and at this moment 'here are probably four thousand men in Texas, under the command of General Taylor. In addition to this, m ivements are in progress in Mew Orleans. Troops h ve been c died out by Gen Gaines,and it is stated t i i directions have been sent to the Governors of a the South Western States, to hold themselves in e lines- for a requisition, if necessary. There has been a great deal of speculation in the pro babili' iesoiwar being made by Mexico,through theis 8ne ot letters of marque and reprisal We have no cer tainty on this point more than on the other It is sta ted with the greatest confidence,that letters of marque and reprisal-blank ones?were issued by Almonte b fore he left this countrv, several months ago, and that numbers ot these letters are already in Havana, in readiness o be used the moment that actual hos tilities commence. Our government have despatch ed agents to even' port and position in which they can possibly collect any information on this very point, for we understand that it h is been determin ed by the President, that the very first attempt to carry out a Mexican letter of marque, will be very severely treated, as much -o as in the case of piracy Another very important oint is al-o involved in doubt, and that is, whether Mexico will make ac tual war without a declaration at all. It was the opinion of Almonte before he left this country, that the annexation of Texas was actual war levied by the United States on Mexico, and that Mexico is therefore justifiable under the law of nations, to make war both by land and water, without any formal declaration. If this be the view entertained by the Mexican government, we shall have no actual dec laration of war, but the first intimation of the dispo sition of that power will be actual hostilities, either on the frontiers of Mexico, or the capture ofjAmeri can property on the ocean. Such is the extraordinary,mysterious,and critical position of affairs between the United States and Mexico. This country is not afraid of Mexico, either alone, or hacked by the secret friendship c! France or England or any other power. Our gov eminent is making the most active preparations ti re pel any attempt upon the territory of Texas, and the President is lirm in the belief that the frontier of that ten itory extends as far as the Rio Grande. Kio del Norte orllio Bravo, by all of which desig natious that long river is known. The first gun th.?t is fired upon United States troops?the first capture that is made of an American ship by a priva teer under a Mexican flag, will only be the signa for one of the most destructive campaigns against Mexico that has ever been known Thousands and thousands of men are offering them: "Ives to the government in all directions, and from all the great cities of the country, in the eveni of tne actual breaking forth of that war. On the publication of a mere rumor in Philadelphia, G>-n Patterson, of that city, instantly offered his services with six thousand armed volunteers, to go to Texas New Orleans, and every other city of note in the South and West,are fired by the same patriotic and warlike spirit, and an arrny of fifty thousand men can be instantly collected. Besides all this, the Treasury of the United States is full to overflowing. Tnr re are ten millions of dollars surplus in th<* hands of the public depositories, and on the assem bling of Congress, there can be no doubt that a loan of twenty, thirty or fifty millions could he easily negotiated, in the present flourishing condition of the nation. It is said that Mexico is instigated in the course of action which she has chosen, by the agents of the British government. Others again contradict thi intimation?for the present the matter must remain enshrouded in mystery till events decide. If, how ever, it be disclosed that Mexico is acting under the instigation of England, or is assisted by British in fluence or British gold, a feeling of hostility to Great Britain will be enkindled here which may operate in a way and with a degree that is little expected We are in a condition not only to bridle Mexico, and to punish her for any attempts she cat mike upon our territory or property; but wt. have it also in our power, without tiring a gun, through that great element of our commerce, tne cotton, to produce a crisis in the commercia atfairs ot England, that would finally bring forth ; dissolution of the social fabric of that empire, and a complete revolution in her government. Thiscould be effected in los thin six months; and where would British power, and British influence then he. either to retain possession of Canada, or to make any movement towardsthe acquisition of Oregon, or, indeed, to maintain, in any point of view, her ascendancy in Europe or Asia! Thus stand matters on this continent, at the pre sent time?in the most critical position that they ever have been during the present century. II this war between Mexico and the United States breaks forth in the shape and manner in which it is now threat < red, it will be the commencement of a military movement involving the whole ol Western Europe, and ending in a complete change in the destiny of he old despotic and monarchical governments of tl.c ancient world. This country?this republic? the " model republic," as English writers choose to call it, holds in its h .nds the destinies ot Britain. It the next news brings in a declaration of war, 110 doubt the President will ca 1 an extra session of '.ongress immediately. This has ulready been inti mated by the organ. In that case, the excitement throughout the countrv would be tremendous. Q-ick Passage ?The ;Oxiord7 Capt. Rathbone, urivcd on Friday from Liverpool; the John Baring, yesterday, from the same pori; and the Burgundy, 'rom Havre. They crossed the Atlantic in twenty six days. Stkamkr Cambria, Judkins, trom Boston, arrived at 11 .ItUx IHfii mat. in 42 hours passage?took on j ? i.it 1 eight additional passengers, and sailed again ilie ? tne day for Liverpool. luiGRATtox in Canapa.?The number of emi* arrived in Quebec, during the weekending i 23d, was 22,80(5?an increase of 5,001 over t.ie a..me period last year. WW Departure of ihe Steamer breat Brllatn^ j Great Concoune of Spectator*. The Steamship Great Britain, Captain Hosken, took her departure tor Liverpool at three o'clock yesterday afternoon. She had fifty-three cabin paa ;engers, a large mail, and twelve hundred bales o, cotton, and packages of other articles, as cargo. At?out 12 o'clock persons began to gather on the wharf at the toot of Clinton street, for the purpose of witnessing the departure. Althoug i it was known that the was not to haul off till three o'clock, yet such was the anxiety to get a view of her, that by two o'clock the wharf was covered with persons Men, women, and children?Irishmen, negroes, loafers, young ladies and old ladies,all were there. The sides of the wharf were lined with fruit stands, ice-cream stands, stands for segars, oysters, root beer, and in fact for all the edibles and drinkables that are usually sold in the streets, lor the benefit of those who forget to eat their meals at home. The scene around and along the piers was most animated ?not only was the whart covered, but the rigging or all the ships lying near, and the tops of the houses and Mores for several squares around were filled with eager ga/.ers. Two or three laughable scenes oc curred at the wharf. A tall strapping Yankee, with ar. umbrella in his hand, came bustling along, and was darting up the stairs, when he was stopped by oneot the ship-keepers with " Passenger Sir?" " No" said the Yankee, "but I've jest come all the way from Varmount, and I want to see what sort of a ship you Britishers can build?I want to go on board " " No," said the keejier, " we don't admit any body." "Well," said the Yankee, "I'll go home'to Yarmount, and tell all the folks that you Britishers are afraid to show your ships j" andoffhe started in high dudseon. At half-past two, preparations were made for haul ing round to the end of the wharf. An Irish woman who had been on hoard to bid some triend farewell, thinking that the ship was going to sail without let. ingher oil", started for the gangway and got on to ? he stairs, hut just at this time the hands were hoist ing up 'he stairs, and with them the poor woman.? "LordJ istts" cried she,"an' are ye coin' tocarry me i>H wi'ye 1 An'what'II Patrick.tny darlin'husband, and me live little chtlder sav when they know I'm gone ! f) do let me off?O do lot me off; I'd rather stay inAmepkv one year than live forty in the Ould Country." This last sentence so excited the patrio tic enthusiasm of some you'in fellows, that holding out their arms tliey received the woman, who jump ?d from the stairs, happy to think she had escaped being earii-d hack to the " Ould Country." The ship hauled round to the end < f the wharf, nd preparations were commenced forher dep mure' Tt?e passengers were getting on board?the steam was issuing from the pipe?the Captain was order ing his crew?the carrier front the Herald office had ust left on hoard the copies of that paper to be sent all over Euroi*?and at half past three the last haw ser was cast off, and the Great Britain was loose asiain upon her element Slowly and majestically she sailed to the middle of the river, when the boom in^ cannon from her side spoke a loud and echoing farewell to America. This was replied to by the hearty cheers ot about five thousand witnesses ? Never did a vessel present a finer sight Flying troni her six masts were the flags ot the principal na tions of the earth, on one the stars and stripes of our own country, and on another these blended with the cross of St. Geor?e she was soon joined by -everal steamboats loaded with passengers,and made iier way slowly down the river. We look our sta tion on board the good steamer Telegraph, with upwards of 8110 others. Knowing Capr. Ryer's ener gy and enterprise, as well us the capabihties ot his vessel. Several boats were announced to accompany the Great Britain along the Bay. The consequence was, that No 1 Pier on the North river was crowd-! ed with persons, anxious to obtain a passage on hoard one or the other of the boats, from twelve o' clock, it having been announced that two o'clock was the last moment of starting. At about a quarter before two, the Mutual Safety came along -ide This was succeeded by the Delaware and It" L. Stevens, followed by the Telegraph, Capf. Ever. At about three o'clock, the Rar.tan and Virginia -learners p tssed in the stream, heaving ahead. This was the signal for preparation. Shortly after the Delaware and Telegraph cast otf?the former bore down the Last river, while the latter hovered about the Battery towards Long I-land shore, for the pur pose of aiviug those on hoard an opportunity of wit nessing the great Leviathan of the deep take her de I purture for tin* land of Iwr creation. The Battery at this time was crowded with sjpec aturs, a- were all the vessels bordering on the East river, livery spot on the Long Island shore was crowded to excess; the heights were one mass ot iieadt?males, females, old and young. The river was crowded with vessels of every description, from the small fishing boattoth* majestic steamer,without number. The different lerry boats on the hay were crowded to excess, to view the departure "of the Great Britain, and nutty crossed and recrossed lor the purpose of witnessing the sight. At this time the steamboats Telegraph, Delaware, R L Stevens. Mutual Safety, John Fitch, Wave, Virginia, and one or two others, were under way. At this mom-lit the Great Britain was observed to ap proach She kept close in the shore. The quar ter deck of the North Carolina was crowded with spectators; among them bonnets prevailed to a cori-ider-jble extent. As the Great Britain up nrouched, she saluted something with two guns; rlns was responded to from a vessel in the river She kept on her course down the bay, accompanied iiy the different steamers, in ouch close proximity in many instances, as to make it rather uncom fortable to the feelings of those on board some of ?he steamers. They kept thus down to ^taten Island at the rate of about five Knots an hour, the Virginia leading the way, closely followed by the John iFitch, the Tel-graph, und the Delaware. Wh^n off" the telegraph station on Staten Island, a salute was fired Here the Great Britain came up with the St i'atriek packet, which she soon left be hind, as .did the other steimers. The heights of Staten Island were crowded with spectators to wit ness the sight. They k-pt on their course to the other side of Coney Island, where most of the steam p ickets tacked round, and bore away hack again tor New York. Capt Ryer, of the Telegraph, wished to ascertain the desire of his passengers, whether to proceed further; some few wished it, but the majority was for turning back; and turn back he did accordingly, leaving the Great Britain bearing her course S. s. E accompanied by th Delaware and John Fitch. The Telegraph reached I her destination, at pier No. 1, on the North River, about half past six o'clock, after one of the rno.-t pleasant and exciting trips ever exiierienced in thi A Dinner to Captain Hoskkn.?A number of our citizens, merchants, underwriters, unci others, gave a dinner, on Friday evening, at the Astor House, to Capt. Hosken, of the Great Britain, Chief Justice Jones presided, assisted by James D. P. Ogden ? The following were the regular toasts:? 1.?Trie merchants of Br istol t?the first to tok their \\ alth in Trans-Atlantic Steam Navigation?the thanks of hoth nations are justly their >lue. ?J The President of the United States .1. The Queen ot Great Britain and Ireland.

The Cities of Liverpool and New- York?honorable competitors in comiiieicial enterprise. Capt. Hosken'nmde abrief reply to the compliments paid to him and Ilia ship; alluded to the reception he met with on his first arrival in the Great Western ; stated his help f tiiat the Great Britain was as strong and substantial a ship as ever was built; and that al though some improvements might be made in the form of Hie propelling power, lie considered the Great Britain as a successful experiment, and one destined to command public confidence. As speech, making was not his vocation, he begged to assure the gentlemen present, in the words of his lamented Irtend, Captain Roberts, that his thanks came from the heurt. Letters were received from Commodore Jones, Captains Stringharn and Cooper, and Colonel Bank head, regretting their inability to be present on the occasion. All these dinners are! well enough in iheir way; they are capital to the lovers of good eating; but will they create the confidence in the public mind that time and experience will! The Great Britain is a splendid steumer, but chickens and champagne will not increase the number of her passengers. _________ The Weather in Massachusetts. ? Quite agreeable change ban tuken place in the ktate ol the wen thcrUia pant :tt> hours.

At Wheeling, on Wednesdtty, there were three leet ot water in the channel, falling. At l'iUtbnrg, the same day, the lliver had two feet of water in the channel. Canada.?The principal topic in the Canada pa pers at present, is the project for making a vast rail road between the lower provinces and Canada, which, it is said, government is to take up. Per haps the thing is iiot impracticable, and may yet be effected ) but it seems Irom the extent ol the line, the nature ot the country, the rigor of the climate through which it must pass, to be a project too vhsi tor the country, and too difficult to be soon accom plished. English gold, however, is nearly omnipo tent. The people of Qutbec are well pleased with the parliamentary grant of ?20,000 tor their relief, and are sanguine euough to look for more in the shape of collections from England. The buildings on the site ot the old ones, are commencing under the di" rection of the committee, and according to the fire proof plans. We observe that shipments of mute rials useful in this province, have been made at Liverpool for Quebec, and are duly appreciated. The theatre is closed, alter a season which has proved more successful than is usual in Montreal; for the people there are far lrom liberal patrons of the drama. Mr. Irfkerritt, however, has been well pleased, and is determined to try it again. A large sale of building lots has taken place on the outskirts of Montreal, and have realized excellent prices, which is rather a sign of the rapid growth of that city, than the ubundance of money. The grounds were known as the Priest's farm. A serious row took place on the race course, where sports began 011 the 19 h instunt. Isaacson, an old Cockney, who is in the beefsteak and chop line, got his crown cracked, and a Mr. Scott was severely beaten. Rumor lays it at the door of the Canalers; hut, notwithstanding the pains taken by the papers to make this apparent, the person beaten declares that there were none such engaged in the attack on his tent and person. The military had to be sent for, but arrived too late to have a shot at the rioters. The Quebec papers mention the arrival of the j bark Iiory O'.NIoore, with a general cargo, in 20 I days from Liverpool. This they cull a remarkably short passage. The City Elections.?Preparations are now made with a greut deal of spirit and zeal for the , coming election in this city in November next, although the movements are not of such a character as to excite much public attention as yet. There will be thre- parties in the field?the democrats, the whigs, and the natives. As the native organization is still kept up, though with greatly diminished vigor and efficiency, it continues to exercise its adverse influence upon the prosperity and strength of the whig party. Greeley, the organ of the young whigs> is also to be classed amongstj the influences wlrch operate disas'rously upon the fortunes of whiggism in this metropolis. His wild vagaries about social reform and reorganization, and his abolitionism, have created a great deal of disgust and indigna tion in many quarters in the party to which he is professedly attached. The great contest will be be tween the whigs proper and the natives, as to which can poll the greatest number of votes. As matters stand now, the democrats will no doubt sweep the field, as in the last election. News from Nova Scotia and Newfoundland ? We have Halifax papers to the 23d inst. The Uni corn since her return from New York, had made a voyage to St. Johns, Newfoundland, and returned to Halifax. ?Prince Henry, of Holland, arrived at St. Johns on the 9rh inst., in the Dutch frigate Rhine, 63 guns Mis Highness wh? welcomed with public demonstra tions of respect by the cozens, and all ranks co-op erated in giving him a hospitable reception. The Prince was expected at Halifax. It is stated that the Labrador fisheries from Cape St Francis to the Seal Islands had been highly successful, but poor at the Carapt Island. The weather at Newfound land had been hot and dry, but the crops looked tol erably well. The St. Johns Morning Post of the I2th men tions, among the vessels in the harbor, " about fitly Spanish merchantmen." City Intelligence. The Lhttkr Carriers.? Before the introduction o the new postage law, the letter carriers did a very good business in the delivery of letters at two cents ea"h,? Since that law Ijas been in force, tbe number of letters distributed in tins city is nearly double what it was he fore. and the same charge for carriage is made. Theie is too large a disproportion between the prices charged for carrying letters three hundred miles and an eighth of a mile The postage on a letter from Boston to this city is five cents, while the postBge fiom the office to the corner of Wall and Nassau streets is two cents, nearly hall as much. It is a pretty heavy bill for some of our mer chants in the course of a year, this paying two cents on each letter. On a newspaper, the charge for delivery is more than the postage. To our certain knowledge, some of the letter carriers make from four to five dollars per day, under the new Jaw. The charge of one cent for car riage would be amply sufficient, and were that charge only made, many persons, who now get their letters at the office would have tliein delivered at their residences or places of business. The receipts of the carriers would he nut little if any less than they are at present In F.ng lund, letters are carried to the house of the pe'sontc whom they are directed, at no extra charge, all the ex penses being paid out of the penny that is charged for postage. Why cannot this system he adopted here, and the carriers he paid by the Post Office Depaiiment ! At any rate, one cent is sufficient for carriage, and we hope our merchants will make a move in the matter. The Wf.a i hi:k.-The weather for the last three days has been cool and delightful. The thermometer on Thursday stood at 73, on Friday at 72, and yesterday at 77. Coronfk's Office, August 30?Sudden Death.?The coroner this morning held an inuiiest at the I'nited States Hotel, in Pearl street, on the body of Capt George Day, Jr , a native of Gloucester, Mass , aged 34 years, w ho was found dead in his lied The deceased had been un well for several days past, hut his friends contemplated removing him to his native place without delay.

'fhe&trtcaia. 1 Since the opening of the present season, theatrical bUii- | ness shows strong symptoms of prosperity, tar beyond that observed lor many years past. The Park, Bowery, Niblos?every place in the shape of a Theatre dedicated to the delineation of human character, are more flourish, ing than there was any reason to hope, or ground for ex |iecting at the opening of the season. Mrs. Mowatt and Mr. Hackett, both natives, have finished engagements at the Park 'with the most extraordinary success. Next week the Kean family, consisting of Mr. Charles Kean and his lady Mrs. Kean, formerly Miss Ellen Tree?make their appearance in the tragedy of the Gamester. A great deal of interest is felt for those artists, they both having been here on former occasions, but in less prosperou times; and we have no doubt from the anxiety manifested to see them, that their engagement will be one of the most profitable and distinguished that has been made at the Park for a long tin e, and fully commensurate with the obvious revival which has taken place. Both Mr. and Mrs. Kean have numerous admirers, and many personal friends in New York and throughout the country. The Bowery Theatre since its re-construction and change of management, has met with a very extensive patronage ; it is nightly crowded. The French Troupe, now at Niblo's.have also been liberally encouraged, and are likely to be supported well as the eveuings begin to get cool. Throughout the whole country, theatricals are decidedly prosperous, and indeed the growing pros' perity of the republic in commercial matters, appears to have communicated a vitality and increased activity, to all kinds of amusements and public recreations. In the midst of this theatrical prosperity in the legiti mate drama and the light kinds, the Italian Opera is falling away. No effort is making to bring a troupe from Italy here, and the artists already in this country are so scattered, and possess so little adhesion of character, that their combined operations are fairly at an end.

Madame Pico and Signer De Begnis, are the only two of note here now, and even they arc en route to Montreal, to do the best they can in that region. Pake Theatre.?The Park was very well filled last night. The bill for the evening wustlie " Lady of Lyons'' and the " Married Rake " la the " Lady of Lyons," Mrs Bland, from the London theatres, made her first appear ance in America, in the character of Pauline. Mrs. Bland's personation of Pauline was characterized by a clearness of enunciation, an elegance of style, and pow erful delineation of the emotions,which drew down loud and frequent applause from the seloct and fashionable audienco. Mr. Dyott as Claude Melnotte astonished even those who knew him best as an actor. Mr. Dyott lias not heretofore been appreciated by the play goers of the Park, and that because he has not hail an opportunity to display the talent which he pos sesses. His peiforinauee ol i laude,was h gtily creditable, and w 11, commence a new era in his theatrical life.? 1 hiougliout it was characteiized by puiity of st>le,and the beuutilul elocution in which Mr Dyott excels We hope hereafter that Mr Dyott will be cast (or a higher range ot chaiacteis than lie has heretofoie appealed in Mr. Bass appeared as Col. Damas, Mrs. Barry as widow Melnotte. and Mrs. Vernon as Madam Deschuppellos. The evening closed with the "Married Kake,"in which the talented and beautiful Fanny Gordon appeared as Mrs Trictiack, the part in which sho first maile such a favoiatile impression on the New Yorkers. On Monday night Mr and Mrs. Charles Kean appear in the tragedy of the "Gamester." Theie will be u crowded house. Bowebv Theatre.?The patronage which this theatre has received from the public is truly surprising. What ever kind of weather we have had, since its re-opening, it has been every night crowded to excess. As u reason for this, we may mention that the plays acted were al ways well selected and properly adapted to the talents of the artist s composing the company, and the taste of the patrons. After two very successful representations of Don Cwsar de Bazan, and the Wreck Ashore, these plays will make room on Monday night for Shakspeare's tragedy of Julius Ctesar, and the drama of llobiu Hood, in which the corps dramutigue attached to the Bowery will have another opportunity of giving incon testible proofs of their talent. Casti.e Gardex.?To-night a grand concert of Sacred Music will be given by tho powerful orchestra of the Garden. To those who are fond of religious melodies, this place will prove a very agreeable resort; the more so that, notwithstanding the numerous audiences that attend nightly this delightful place, its vast size and con venient accommo datioua render it always the most com- j fortable one in this city.

Skerrett wound up his season of nine or ten weeks last Saturday with a tolerably lair house. He dolivered a farewell address, and was loudly cheered. After the fall of the cuitain, his pretty little wile w as called out, but Skorrett took this honor also on himself, and began another *|>eech, but finding his mistake, he suddenly re tired, and Andrews led forward Mr*.

Miss Clarendon, who is the most milk and water mixture of assumption and inability that ever stepped on a stage, made three- nights hideous by her direlul execution of Tauline, Mrs. Mailer, and an other part equally above her comprehension and ability to portray. And one paper here (the Courier, I think,) was the only one that lashed the imposture as it deserved. The others lauded her to the skies, before she appeared, and alterwa'ds talked an infinite deal of nothing about what she might, would, could, should, or ought to be. Mrs Howard and Mrs. Andrews lemain to sing with the Dcll-Kingers, the rest of the company depart, each on his or her errand, and thus ends the theatrical season at Montreal. The .Heguins gave two concerts here lately, to very meagre audiences they then went to Quebec, and were not more fortunate, while, by the Toronto Herald, it ap pears, they played in that city to n beggarly account of empty benches.

Picayune, Aug. 22.J The departure ot the Alabama yesteiday for Texas wrought up the martial hi dor and excitement of our citi zens to a high pitch. Nothing else was talked of during the day; passengers were running hither and thither, completing their preparations for the expedition, and the friends of the troops, and especially ot the volunteers from this city, uiowded to the scene of embarkation, to take leave or them and wish them "God speed" in their patriotic enterprise. We cannot compute the numbers who went down to the barracks on these friendly offices, or who were at tracted thither by curiosity to see so large and unusual an armed force set forth on a warlike expedition. It was very large indeed, and the whole were animated with a zeal that must have still further inflamed the pat riotic ardor of the troops. We have merely room for an enumeration of the officers, with their commands, who embarked. The steamer got under way late last eve fling. First ceuie .Major Ually's and Capt.

We are glad to be corrected in our statement of yester day, that Capt. Miles was unsuccessful in endeavoring to charter a steamboat for the government. He succeeded in securing the steamboat Creole, Capt. lliern. which has just been thoroughly overhauled and repaired. She will be ligged with a mast, as when she came out from New Vork. To-morrow she sails lor Pensacola, and on Monday from that port for her destination in Texas. She will take over thirteen oificers, one hundred and fifty men, six horses, with military stores, &c. We noticed \esterday, mustered among Major Gally's corps, many chivalrous and enthusiastic young Creoles, fellows who could live at home in ease, it not in luxury, but who joined the service for the "fun oi the thing"? Braver spirits will not be iouud in the ranks, and, like ord Gen. Brady, whenever the drum beats, they will be found ready, with knapsacks slung.
