NEW YORK HERALD. Slew York, >1oikIh>. February '43, INYO. Our Mexican Relation* We have received some rather important intelli gence troni Texas and Mexico, which we Hive in an othercolumn The leading letter under our postscript head in yesterday's pai*-r, intimated that the admi nistration would soon bring our relations with Mex ico to a crisis. Now we have advices, stating that tlen. Taylor, in command ol the troops at Corpus ( hristi, has received orders to march to the Boca iiel Rio, and there take up his position. This con tains our statement from Washington, and there, the re to re, seems to be very little doubt but that some decided movement will soon be made on the l>art of our government to settle ihe dispute with Mexico. We hope that this vexatious business with this nation?vexatious because it is so small in itsell?will be siieedily arranged It is certainly ti me tor a settlement. The Oregon iluestlon.? \oolktt Hound Con vention. On the first page of this day's paper, will be found some highly imi?ortani papers takeufrom the "New Annual Register" of 1790, published in London, and esteemed ol the highest authority, which will throw more light oil the true character of the right of ownership in the Oregon territory, than any evi dence which has heretofore made its appear ance in this country. Had we time and sfuce, we should spread through our columns the whole of the p irlianientary debate when the king's message was presented by the British Premier, William Pitt, in order to show mat so lar was it from being consid. ered a righteous cause of complaint against Si>ain, that some of the leading members of Parliament, among whom were the distinguished Charles Fox, Edmund Burke, and Sheridan, thought the subjects oi Great Britain had been guilty of an outrageous trespass, and merited from the Spaniards much more severe treatment thun had been bestowed. It will be jierceived, in the convention, that the pri vileges of trade, and settlement for me purposes Of trade, were extended to the uavigators of England, to the South as well as to the Northern seas and, con sequently, it would be equally within the grant, tor (.freat Britain to claim the right of joint occupancy of the whole ot the Southern coast of South Ameri ca, as to pretend to their claims on the North-west ern territory; but aB this might appear rather too large a stretch of aggression to suit even the pliant servility of the French government, it has never been attempted. It however, remains matter for a future dilference with the republics of South Ameri ca, aud il not settled now, may lead to matters of dispute and compromise. We ask an attentive perusal of these papers, with the hope that the citizens ot the United Slates will see, in thiB affair, the insatiable aggrandizing disposition ot Great Britain. Kirect or the Foreign Newe.-The Oregon Compromise or Foreclosure. In every circle of our community, may be seen the agreeable excitement ptoduced by the recently ofnlriv ?h re'^n ntW9; HDd WJthoUt d???ction that our' r I sa,18fttC"?n prevails, in the hope hat our relations with Great Britain may be brought ton speedy termination, equally honorable to both ihe I d* n?twuhs,ttndinK the efforts made by teehtr t" '? among U9 ,he "rongeat i? i trritation, that it might have an oppor cesl of thtt?8ttl1118 ?Wn g0Vernment 'or the ill sue cess ol the negot,aliens. The controversy has evi ? ntly narrowed itself down to the smallest point of be e " Jbe ft>r,y-nin,h parallel of latitude may be considered as conceded, leaving nothing more or d.scusston than the settlement of matters of minor cous.derat,on. W?h respect to the navig., u? Colombia river, we ought to concede us use to the subjects of Great Britain, for a limited 1'nod, ,? return .or the establishment ot a tree \ on V ancouver's island, and the permanent right to ! navigate the waters between the tsland and the .nam land, without interruption, lor the purposes of ZgFur , C*r08a '? and ,r0n'lhe *** of Jom , , in feeing to the temporary use of the Columbia river, we secure to ourselves the capital vah.ah'l 0< ,0rcign,?r,s'in tbe cstabltshment of winch will be carried on in the Pacific. la forming this conciliatory opinion of the sub jects in dispute, we have taken in consideration the ret77 """I" Whldl haVC ^ 'o our reflection, and we think, when properly weighed they cannot fail to j.roduce conclus.ous with all impartial observers. In the first place, we have the related openly avowed purjaise of the parties, through their proper representatives, of a willingness and constant desire to close the uitlerences in dispute in a spiru *t liberality, and on terms ol mutual concession and con- ! uhdtion, which necessarily means compromise And as we are willing to abandon to Great Britain that portion of the territory which lies contiguous to her possessions, about a moiety of the disputed ground, we claim in fairness and equity the residue, whicn is continuous and contiguous, in a direct line to the Pacific, with the United States. The line ol di vision we require, is the cont.nuance of the same boundary which now separates the territories of both nations to the Rocky mountains. II there existed no special matters of hidden interest, independent of the true subj ct in con'roversy this equitable ar rangement would be conceded to without a mo ment's hesitation. The free navigation of the Columbia river-the whole ot Vancouver's Island, and the Bay of Juan de I uca, are the matters of interest contended for 1 ntain' b"1 wh'cb we hold, if granted would be not only to deprive the United States ol the advantages of every seaport, but to create, in ?P at ritain, a quasi joint sovereignty-a species ol wiprrium m tmptrio, within our rightful juris diction. I, would, evidently, be unjust to expect from us the abandonment ol any valuable harbor - This ought sot to b. asked ; and, ,f adm.tted. would, underevery treaty formed on such inconveni ent inequality, he aconsunt theme of dissatisfaction. There would exist no good fellowship-no perma nent duration to our friendly relations. We do not believe, with the light whteh has been recently hrownon this important matter of difference, that there can he any longer honorable continuance o' the controversy To refuse to compromise, ,n such a manner.sw.U do K, the contending par ties, would not only he to act in hostility to the com ZSZiSFT*" *** State, and n, but to keep ,he c.v.l.xed world in a state of great embarrassment and annoyance In support of the liberal view. o. oar ow? govern! cede the free of the Columbia nverVud .? can be distinctly seen, whatever phases,he comt pondence has assumed, the same grand object has been m contemplatton-the peaceful arrangement ot the subject in dispute, for the preserve.,OD 0? an amicable intercourse If we have changed ,n our 1'ropo.iuon for a comprom se, we have been com piled so to do, from the discovery thst, ere long po'rtl^ m'i l0" l?

It does not require much penetration to discover that the speech of Monsieur Guizot was made after a full understanding with the British cabinet, that we might comprehend the nature and extent of the difficulties we should have to encounter. If we do not yield to theae strong testimonials of the anxious desire of these great t>owers, to preserve the harmony of the world, and should we insist on terms more extreme than those we have intimated, we shall deservedly place our selves in the wrong, and tairly merit the censure of the world. It is clear that England's desirous to close the controversy; and under sach circumstances, we do not doubt that the whole matter will be settled within the shortest possible diplomatic l?riod, to the honor and happiness of the con tending parties; and in the issue, the responsible heads of each nation will receive, as they will be justly entitled to, the lull approbation ol their re sjiective constituents. To the President of the United States we are happy to accord our fullest ap probation; und in doing so, we are perlectly aware | that we do no more than give him full credit for wise foresight, enlightened consistency, and the most distinguished and dignified fi mness of pur pose. Ocean S tea in Navigation. The great success attending the navigation of the ocean by steam, especially by what are called the Canard steamers, has accomplished a revolution of a most important nature in the transmission of news and travellers, to distant parts of the world. Dis tances requiring, a few years since, months to ac complish, can now be travelled in a lew weeks, and travellers can calculate almost on the certainty of reaching their places of destination, to a day. It may be well supposed that t lese increased facilities ot travel, generate an increased amount, and a desire on the part of many to go abroad, who, otherwise, wou d not venture from their homes. This desire is becoming universal, and is particularly conspicu ous in the United States. The profits accruing from ocean steamers, have stimulated the American shipbuilders to participate in the trade, which is at present monopolized by Great Britain, and we hear of extensive prepara tions that are on loot, to establish lines of steamers to |ily between ports in the United States and the principal cities of the old world, and ports in our Southern States. Already we have one line, under taken by R. R. Forbes, Esq , of Boston, a gentle man of enterprise and experience, and who has done more to advance American ship building, pro bably, than any other man, except E. K. Collins, Esq., of this city. The steam propeller Massachu setts, the pioneer of Mr. Forbes' line, is now on her passage from Liverpool, and is hourly expected. Tnis vessel was an experiment, merely, and has not succeeded as well as it was anticipated she would. The probability is, that the remaining three, which, with the Massachusetts, will compose Mr. Forbes' line, will be constructed on the same principle, bul much improved in various ways. In addition to this, the recent mail contracts made between our government and several of our enterprising mer chants, will give us three or four lines el splendid steam ships?one to run between this city and some port in Europe, and another to run between New Orleans and Galveston. Besides these, there are now building in this city, one or two splendid steam ers, to run between New York and Charleston. All of these vesselsare to be built in the most sub stantial manner, and will probably be at the disposal of the government, in the event of their being re quired for vessels of war. This is a most judicious arrangement; for we will have on hand at ail times a number of these vessels, without any expense on the part of the go vernment in keeping them in commission, besides insuring the rapid and punctual delivery ot the mails to ull parts of the world. By this method we might have, in a few years, a navy equal to that of any other nation, without any additional taxation, and one becoming the greatness of the American people. It is notorious that our present navy, even in time of peace, is insufficient to give protection to our widely-diffused commerce; and in the event of a rupture with either France or England, il would be inadequate to carry on, with any hope of success, a war on the ocean. Our gallant Little navy has, on many occasions, performed almost miracles, and reflected the highest lustre on the | country ; but it could not be expected to success fully coni|>ete with the navies of England or France. We have the skill and materitl for a navy as large and powerful as any in the world ; and even if we had no prospect ot a foreign war for fifty yeare to come, it would, nevertheless, be ne cessary to increase our navy in the same ratio with our commerce. In commerce we rank as second among the nations, and our present navy is not as large as that of a fourth or fifth-rate European power. There can be no good reason that such an inequality should exist. Our hardy seamen Bhould be amply protected ; for it is to our extension of commerce that we are indebted lor'our present high rank. Every sea visited by our commerce should be likewise visited by our navy ; and every injury and injustice done to it should be promptly re dressed. This cannot be done, if, as frequently is the case, several months elapse before the commission of the injury gets to the knowledge of the government, impressed with these feelings, we hail the recent contracts entered into by'our government with plea sure, and see in them the dawn of a new era. Tn Common Council.?It is understood that both Boards will meet this evening. In the Board of Aldermen it is expected that the police bill, as amended, and the .further considers* tion of the charter pertaining to our city govern ment, will be disposed of in some way. Alderman Mrsserole, of the 10th ward, is directly in favor of submitting the whole matter to the people them selves, rather than taking it within the gilt of those who represent them. Alderman Charlick takes the same view of the matter under consideration, while at the same time he conceives that the members ot the Board are are in themselves the people, repre senting their interests: and that, therefore, it is quite unnecessary to submit the same to a conven tion. There seems to be quite a trembling in the ranks of the party, which nothing but a thorough and ra dical reform in our city government can materially affect and set right. Distinguished Areival.?We learn that ex-Pre aident Van Buren has arrived in New York, and in tends to remain for some five or six weeks. He is at present stopping with his son, Major Van Buren, in the Fifth avenue. In the present aspect of poli tics in this State, the movements of the ex-Presi dent are watched with no little interest by the dif ferent tactions ot the democratic party. Diplomatic Movements ?J F. Crampton, Esq., Secretary ot Legation to H. B Majesty at Wash ington, and the Hon Spencer Ponsonby, Attach6 to the same, arrived in the city yesterday from Eng land, and oooupy apartments at the Globe Hotel. The Mormon Heoira.?About two thousand Mormons, mostly young men, have crossed the Mississippi, and are now far advanced on their way to California. They are to form the aran* guard* of the Mormon expedition, and have started early, to provide for those who shall follow. This is an incident in religious history, that will, undoubt edly, be as remarkable a one as is the Hegira with the Mahometans. A new empire is to be founded in California; and being thrown there, upon their own resources, they will be obliged to labor and cultivate the earth. We consider this a very good move on the |>art of the Mormons. A much larger i expedition is to.follow soon ' Theatric*), and Mcsical.?There is no people on the face ot the earth who more readily appreciate talent of a high order in artiata, or esteem and pa tronize real merit, than the American people. New York stands pre-eminent in her admiration ot ge nius, no matter what form it may assume. Our po pulation is ot a very mixed character, to be sure; but there is n homogeneousness which is not tound elsewhere on this continent. We are ever on the qui vivt for some novelty, but it is always the novel ty of merit. The popular taste, in matters pertain ing to music and the drama, has much improved, too, of late years, and nothing mediocre can now long hold a place in public estimation. There is a great demand for tirst-rate artxtlct, but they must make the great national pulse vibrate, to maintain a position. It will not do, as in Paris and Vienna, and other cities of Europe, to be the lion of a cote rie. No clique, be it never so powerful, can elevate mediocrity into the sunshine of popular favor in this metropolis; and here is a significant fact, which is beginning to be understood by candidates for fame. On more than one occasion we have witnessed the feeble attempt of some faction to foist upon the pub lic some bantling of its own creation; but how sig nal has ever been the indignant rebuke administer tered by the free, fearless and thinking masses. Asa people, we combine the vivacity and love of change peculiar to the French, with the solidity and energy of the English and Germans; but we also have peculiar characteristics of our own, and our amusements are, therefore, more varied than those of other nations. We are at once enthusiastic ad mirers of the legitimate drama, and the "spectacle" and melo-drama. We delight in the fascinations of the ballet, and have a lively taste for music and poetry, and the line arts. Whatever possesses ori ginality and beauty we readily appreciate, as much as though we were to "the manner born"?but it must be brought to our notice without trickery or disguise. Genius needs not the intervention of clique* to bolster it up. With these remarks,we pass to the state of amuse, ments around us Theatricals in this country were never in a more flourishing condition than at the present moment, though we do not anticipate any great furor in this city, until the return of the Keans, from their Southern tour. Leopold de Meyer, the most extraordinary artiste who ever visited America, has lately left this scene of his bnliant triumphs, for Philadelphia and Washington, where will undoubtedly gather fresh laurels, and in crease his already great reputation as the lion pianist of the age. Madame Augusta has also closed a very success ful engagement at the Park theatre, where she brought out the delicious ballet, entitled "La Giselle." The able and judicious management of the Bow- I ery, or Metropolitan theatre, in another part of the city, has produced, within the last few weeks, seve ral beautiful and effective dramas, which are dee- , tined to have a great run. ThiB establishment is 1 now borne upon the full tide of popular favor, and is nightly crowded by enthusiastic audiences. A magnificent new drama will be produced for the first time, this evening, which, we doubt not, will attract brilliant and crowded houses for a long time. The management deserve much praise for their liberality and enterprise. Howe's Circus, at Palmo's, is also thronged nightly, by our most fashionable and wealthy fami lies, and the performances are always conducted with spirit and in good taste. The great attraction here is the celebrated female equestrian, Madame Macarte, whose daring performances, and beautiful delineations of character, have won universal ad miration. Her act of horsemanship is, indeed, a rare exhibition of beauty, grace and skill, and well deserves the loud praises bestowed by the press and public generally. This evening, at the Hark theatre, Misa Char otte Barnes, a young lady whose promised excel ence all play-goers will remember, makes her debut as the i&ir heroine in Shakspeare's subhinest con ception. "Romeo and Juliet." Miss Barnes has , Iutit returned irom England, where she ib highly spoken of. The part she has selected for her debut is one in which feminine delicacy und tenderness preponderate ; and in the delineation of these diffi cult, but beauiiful characters, we should imagine she would prove most successtul. Mr. Van denhofl, a correct and sterling actor, will also make ^ his debut as Mereutio. The renowed Mr. Sands and his talented and beautilul children, will also make their third ap pearance at the conclusion of the tragedy, in their astonishing gymnastic exercises. The ieats per formed by these great artittee have been the theme at universal praise, while the loud applause be stowed on their efforts, is the beat evidence of their cleverness. Nothing can surpass the perfect grace, agility and skill exhibited in their daring feats, while the loveliness of the boys, and simplicity of their manners, creates the deepest interest in their favor. Of the cheap minor theatres we hear no- 1 thing said, but believe they are still in existence. Thk Clkrqy and the War Question .?Seve. ral clergymen, of different persuasions, both in New York and Boston, delivered discourses from their pulpits yesterday, urging the maintenance of peace between this country and England. The ob ject of this movement was, the expectation that the government at Washington would be influenced in their negotiations with England, about the Oregon territory, so that the matter would be settled in some way, without a resort being had to ultimate measures. We consider this a most impertinent interference of the clergy, in matters with which they have no right to connect themselves; and we rather think, that if the clergy would mind their own affairs, and 1st the Oregon and all other political questions re main in the hands of those who were selected by the people to manage them, they would do the country more service than they can possibly hope to achieve in any other way. This interference of the clergy in questions of State, must be frowned down, no matter in what respect it is proffered. We do not pay them to act as politicians?we elect our agents to transact all affairs of State, and j>ay preachers to attend to their business. When a minister leaves the pulpit, and comes down into the political arena and identifies himself with political questions, he at once forfeits his clerical character and loses influence among his dork. The day has gone by when the clergy could, with impunity, interlere in affairs of State. Movements of Traveller a.

Important from Tuu and Mrxteo. We have received, by the steamer New York, at New Orleans, advices from Galveston to the 10th inst. These advices are interesting and important. Gov. Runnels, collector of the customs for the district ol Texas, and inspector of the revenue for the port of Galveston, has given notice that Ualvu t&n it the only port of entry tn Ttxat, and that con sequently all arrivals Irom foreign ports must be re rted there, and all duties on importations must paid at that port only. The following is the notice issued by the new Collector:? The undersigned having been appointed by the Presi dent of the United States, Collector ol the Customs for the district of Texas, and Inspector of the Revenue for the port of Galveston in the State of Texas, notice is hen by given, that masters of vessels will be, and are hereby required, to report and enter in conformity to the revenue laws of the United States. All vessels that were bono tide owned by citizens of Texas, on the 39th day of December last, and those which may have been since built, or may hereafter be built, in its limits, are deemed and will be held as ves sels of the United States, and will be enrolled, licensed or registered by their original names, in conformity with the laws that regulate the enrolments, licensing and registering of vessels of the United States. Ana vessels heretofore sailing under enrolments, license or register, from the heretofore Republic of Texas, are re quired, as soon as practicable, to take out the proper papers from the custom house of the district of Texas, at Galveston. Hibam G. Runnels, Collector, ko According to the Civilian, a report had reached Corpus Chnsti to the etiect that Chihuahua, and some of the adjoining States, had declared their independence of the Mexican government, and are determined to maintain a separate confederacy. This may have something to do with the recent movements of Arista in the North; They ata talking of raising money in Tsxas for the Jackson Monument?the very thing we were doing here. There are between thirty and fifty houses?brick and , frame, going up in Galveston. Preperty has advanced in ? the city 60 per cent within the last six months. ] Capt. Mansfield and Lieut. 8carritt, of the corps of | Engineers, are now engaged in surveying the bays and i inlets between Corpus Christi and Matagorda. A private letter from Corpus Christi states that Capt. John R Baker was attacked by a party of U. s. soldiers, on the 1st inst., and severely injured. The wounds 1 which Capt. B. had received at the attack on the Mexi can guard at Saliado, are said to have been greatly lace | rated, and the dangerous bayonet wound in his side (from which he had but partially recovered) was so badly injured that it was attended with a copious dis cbarge of blood The writer does not state what was the cause of such cruel treatment. We learn that San Antonio is rapidly being improved and rebuilt. Alter years of doubt ana uncertainty, the inhabitants now see their way clear, and are improving their beautiful and healthy town to a degree. Near 6000 emigrants had arrived at Galveston within the ten months, ending on she 1st January last. [From the New Otleans Picayune, Feb. 13.] We yesterday heard it reported that Gen. Taylor, in command of the United States troops at Corpus Christi, has received orders to break up that encampment aud move to the Boca del Rio, (mouth of the Rio Grande,) and there take up a position. One account has it that he is going no lurther than Brazos Santiago, a position some ten or fifteen miles this side the Rio Grande, and near the southern extremity of the Isla del Padre, the length of which the troops will probably march by land. It is thought that the army will commence the march in

the course of two or three weeks,or as soon as the means of transportation are in resuliness. This new movement, coupled with the recent departures of United States vessels irom Pensacola, and the increase to the naval force in the Gulf, would indicate that our government is determined to watch cloeely the movements of Paredes, and be in readiness for any emergency. We trust that but few months will elapse before wecome to a thorough understanding with Mexico, and that all difficulties may he definitely settled. The piesent uncertain relations between the two countries should no longer be tolerat ed. Interesting from Hayti.?We have received our regular files of papers from Port au Prince. Lt Manifftt, of the 1st instant, communicates the information that the brig Independence, which had been purchased by the government, has been pronounced unseaworthy. She set sail a short time before, and after being out only a few days, was obliged to put back, being halt filled with water. The engineers, on examining her, pro nounced her to be unfit for service. It is affirmed that the brig was known to be unfit for service long before the llaytien government purchased her. The journals make great complaints at the alleged fraud practised. The same journal relates that it has been advised that the Spanish flee', which left Cubs, supposed to be destined lor Dominica, to assist the Dominicans, was only intended to transport troops and Btores ts Porto Rico, where, it is said, symptoms ot revolt had manifested themselves. Having landed the troops on board, at Porto Rico, the journal proceeds to say, that its future destination was to cruise in the seas to the north of llayti, in order to protect the Spanish fiag, which, it was thought, was in danger, in consequence of the struggle going on between Hayti and the insurgents of the Kast that is, the Dominicans. This story is believed by the Haytiens. Upon the rumor ot the intention of the Spanish government going to take Dominica, and take up . the cause of the Dominicans, the journal speaks I as follows:? It M said, indeed, that the government of Madrid was about to ?end ihipi of war, direct from Europe, to pro tect the in*urgent?. But we cannot conceive how that i government should have recourse to *hipeof war from Sid Spain, and not retort to the .hip. at Jul*. OU Spain it not to rich at her colony, tidce it it Cuba which supplies her eahautted treatury. In fact, we believe that all thii talk of Spannith protection it ani idlei tale, invented on purpote to impede ut in our effort* againtt the Eaitern in t urgent a. From the Wrecks.?The pilot boat Blossom ar rived here yesterday, having on board the body ot Mr. Freeborn, the noble pilot who was lost with the John Minturn. She brought up the bodies of eight others, unknown. The services of the generous and humane men belonging to the Blossom were gratuitously tender ed to those who had friends on the beach, and offer ed every assistance in order to recover the missing bodies, lt is understood that Mr. Freeborn's fune ral will take place to-morrow. The bodies of Capt. Stark, lady, daughter and son, with a number of others, were brought to the city yesterday, in the steamboat Transport, from South Amboy. Humanity in New Jersey.?It appears that those who had lost friends in the late gale, on the coast of New Jersey, were compelled to pay ten dollars for each body cast lifeless on Squan Beach, to the local authorities in that vicinity. It is really to be hoped that none of those who thus extort money, will ever be wrecked on their own shores. It would be diffi cult to tell what would become of their clothes and money, to say nothing of their souls. Mystic Bridge, Ct, Feb. 20,1846. TV Lot* of iht John Minturn. The melancholy loss of the ship John Minturn has thrown our little community into mourning, for the loss of nearly a whole family. Captain Dudley Starks had three children, two of whom, with his wife, were on botrd the ill-fated thip. Hi* eldett daughter it the wift of Mr David Mallory, merchant, of thia place. No one can conceive the grief and distress of Mr* Mallory on hearing of the loea of father, mother, | brother, and ti.tar. Mr Leeds was a passenger on hoard the lost thip, and has left a wife end one < hild to mourn hit premature death The above persons all balongad to Myrtle, and their death i have ca.t a gloom on the people here which wUl not teon be erseed.

Omr Special Kxpreac from Boston* [From the Baltimore flipper, Feb '11) The steamer Cambria arrived at Boston, on Wednes day night, with one month'a later new* from Europe. It waa received in New York in 7 hours alterwarda by the Herald express, ahead of the Halifax express and all others, and in Philadelphia by the V. S. Gaulle, iu~ advance of its contemporaries. [From the Baltimore Prices Current, Fab. 31 ] The Cambria left Liverp >ol 4th inat. and arrived at boston on Wednesday night, and tho advices by her were conveyed in seven hours and five minutes to the Mew York Herald office, as we learn by an extra Herald, received through the politeness of its editor by yester day's afternoon mail, who will please accept our thanks for the same. The Herald enables us to say something about the grain and flour market at Liverpool, which will be found below. The accounts from the continen tal markets are devoid of general interest. [From the Philadelphia Chronicle, Feb. 31.] An Exraxss.?The AVu> York Herald has given the combined Wall street press in that city a Waterloo de feat, in expressing the news by the Cambria. The Her aid'? express came from Boston to New York ia the unprecedented time of seven hours and five minutes.? It nad the news exclusively. [From the Philadelphia Sun, Feb. 31.] Txs Cambria's News.?We mentioned yesterday that the first reception of this news in Philadelphia, waa by means of the express run by the United Statee Gazette. It seems that a wild project was entertained by several publishers in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, and Bal timore, to convey tbe news by some miraculous means from| Halifax.| The combination, or conspiracy, or whatever it may be called, did not succeed, and we are not sorry that a plan so objectionable in some of its features, failed as it did. The JVru> York Herald, stand ing alone, obtained the news several hours sooner than the papers which entered into an alliance for tbe sole purpose of defeating the Herald, which they were not able to oppose single handed. Toe United Statee Gazette, without conspfiing with any one to obtain an ingiotious victory, achieved tbe object which several ? combined presses of Philadelphia could not effect Here | is a good moral lesson which, we hope, will have a pro ? par influence in time to come. [From the National Polica Gazette, Feb. 3 ] The I nc ompa a able Enterprise or tui New York 1 Herald ? Bennett has again, by his single, unassisted i and incomparable personal'enterprise, beaten the com I biued exertions of the whole newspaper press of four ] cities, and has furnished the news by the Cambria to the country five hours in advance of the confederated des peration opposed to him. His enemies may say what they please of him?he has proved himself, by bis enter prise and his talents, to be one of the most valuable citizens of the Republic. He obtained the news by the " Liberty," of the dissolution of the English Cabinet, by a dangerous sea and land express, and laid its pacifying influence before Congress at the opening of their halls just previous to an anticipated warlike debate. The result of this exploit ol personal enterprise might, if the Oregon question had been further advanced, have saved the country millions and millions of money, a devastating war, and the blood of thousands of its citizens. Who will say that Bennett is not a valuable member of soci ety ? and who will enviously refuse to accord him tbe credit which be deserves 7 His opponents, however, deserve credit for their enterprise, although they failed in success [From the Salem Advertiser, Feb. 31.] Eiraxss.?Tbe N. Y Sun and Tribune Express came through this city on Wednesday evening about eight o'clock, on its way to New York, from Halifax. If Ben nett should be defeated a second time, we think he had better, for more reasons than one, adopt the suggestion we heard expressed by a friend, which is, to have an edition of the New York Herald made up and printed in England, and ready for distribution as soon as it arrives in New York. There is no newspaper establishment in tbe country, except the Herald, which has the requisite talent, energy and enterprise lor such an undertaking ; and, done by Bennett, would place the Herald establish ment at the very highest point of newspaper perfection. Now, one strong reason for such a work is found in the fact that, all our news by the steamers is made up for us in England, and is altogether of the Tory party charac ter. We have nothing of the liberal views of England, and this is what we want. All we get is English, tho roughly English. Bennett would compile a paper which would be American in principle and leeling. Wilmer It Smith's Timet is English in its whole character, and strives to give an English view, and to sway popular feelingly America by an EngLsh influence. We want something else, and hope Bennett, who is the man to do it, will take our friend's suggestion into consideration. Since tbe above was in type, we learn the other papers did not " come it" over Bennett. He had type, composi tors and compile s on board the steamer that took them from Allyn's Point to New York, and during its passage the whole foreign news was put in type, ready for the press immediately on the boat's arrival In New York. [From the Boston Mail, Feb. 30] But if the Timet bad bad luck with its share in the enterprise, we fear the combined New York and Phila delphia papers are still more sadly disappointed. The express of the Mew York Herald overtook and passed the other at Worcester, reached Alley's Point yesterday morning at 3 o'clock, and took the swift steamer Travel ler for New York, with type and compositors on board, so as to have it ready for the press the moment of its ar rival there. Thus this great express, which, it is said, will cost tbe combined publishers of New York, Phila delphia and Boston, over $3,500, and two extra pairs ef " seven league boots," has probably turned out a com plete failure ; a very just fate, considering the stupidity with which it was planned, and the harum scarum style in which it appears to have been executed. There is fun in precious little fun in running expresses through the Bey of FWdy, and precious hard digging in getting them through Digby. [From the Boston Packet, Feb. 31.] The combined express reached Worcester a few mi nutes after 13 o'clock on Thursday morning, and went on by the way of Hartford and New Haven, reaching New York at 1 o'clock, P. M. at the same moment that the Mew York Herald, having supplied the southern Bail, was filling every corner ol the city with the news. [From the New Haven Herald, Feb. 30.] Bennett of the Sew York Herald, has earned the fea ther this time, beating the other expresses out of all ! character?he reaching New York about the time the i other passed through New Haven. The express of the i combined papers of the TWibune and Journal of Ceai- 1 merer left Halifax, but reached Boston only about half an hour befora the Cambria came up to the East Boston ; dock ; Bennett then took the news, hurried over his ; route, and by "hook or crook" reached New York about 1 8] bouts in advance. We understand that part of his i route was by boat, and that be had a font of type on ! board, and compositors at work, to distribute the news j as his express reached the city.

The (ale of wind came from the S.

The weather to day is delightful and mild, not a cloud to be seea in the heavens, tbe sun warm and spriDg like, the sleighing good, and a thaw commencing. This was the state of things at 12 M. [From the Nantucket Inquirer, Feb 16.] On Sunday last we were visited by the most violent snow storm which has been experienced here for more thau2A years, It commenced snowing about daybreak, and continued without intermission throughout the whole day and evening. Nearly all chnrch-going was intercepted, and none but the most zealous and hardy were induced to leave their comfortable firesides to breast the tempest.
