sfttisssAjr-* *** ***1 r> A latter rvcaiTtd by a commercial house In this city, atwl published by the Courier of laat evening says:? " Gen. Alvarez baa pronounce*! in tha South in favor of the federalists?and in tba meantime calls for a trium virate composed of General Santa Anna. Hen-era and Kincon, who are to rovem this countqy until a free elec tion can take place for a president; but we hare so many of these pronunciamentos that they do not amount to any thing. " ><a the *J0th instant, the editor and proprietor of the Monitor, in Mexico, was imprisoned and sent to San Bias" j We find in the /Mario, a letter from Canales to Ampu dia, of which we offer a few paragraphs, as precious spo cimeus of Mexican vanity. The letter is dated the 5th April, from Matamoras:? "The Hnited States Army is encamped on the left bank of the Rio Bravo. Slight fortifications have been thrown up in front, or ratber large ditches have been dug, the earth of which has been used for entrench raonts. " I have redoubled my efforts to attack the enemy morally, and flatter myself that I have succeeded, for deserters are daily swelling our ranks. 1 have 36 thus far: six were drowned, lie. " I have inspired such terror in the foe that they know not what to do, convinced aa they are that tbey cannot leave tbeir camp without heavy loss, and exposing them selves to defeat. " These few lines will enable you to appreciate the advantages of a prompt arrival, before Taylor has time to receive reinforcements, and be enabled to make a vi gorous resistance The triumph is certain to-day?to morrow it must be disputed. " Canales." Another letter, from Mctta, declares "that General Taylor is compelled to employ one-half his army in pre venting the other half from deserting !" Important Suggestion?War or no War.? The last National lnttlligencer has the following suggestion :? On the aubject of the hostilties which have actually commenced on the Rio Grande, let ua suppose a case which would show the declaration of war against Mex ico to be as premature as it has bean precipitate. In the anarchy which prevails in Mexico, where (the forms of the constitution having become as much of a farce aa they are in danger of becoming among ourselves,} tho Presidency becomes the prize of the most enterprising and successful soldiers why may not Arista, universally reputed aa an ambitious as well as accomplished General, taking advantage of his rank and bis influence over offi cers subordinate to him, have seized this occasion, with out orders from his government, to make a dash at our army, which, If he do no more than ha has already done ?but, still more, if he force it to retire from its present position, however short a distance?by the eclat which such an exploit will give him, and his popularity with the army, march to Mexleo, drive out the Preaident of the day, and seat himself in his stead ? After merely stating this problem for the reader's consideration, we will add, in seriousness, that wo really have some doubt whether the crossing of the Rio Grande by the Mexican forces haa been authorized at all by the government of Mexico, and whether it will not be promptly rebuked and disavowed by it In this hypothesis, what would be come of the solemn assertion, by law, that " by the act of the Republic of Mexico, a state of war exists between that Government and the United States r (W* We dosir? to express our thanks to Mr. Clowes, ferry-master, Jersey City, for aiding us in getting the news which we published in yester day's Extra Herald, as quickly as possible, to our officc.

The part week ha* been filled with excitement, and stock tjwculutora hare bean in a continual state of alarm. Quotation* for itocks have fluctuated from day to day, find there has been a desperate contest between the bull* and the beara for the control of price*. The bears have had everything thoir own way; wars and rumors of-wars have been very plenty, the money market has been steadily tightening, and the confidence of outside opera tors has been gradually giving way ; notwithstanding which prices have boen firm, and the bulls have sustain ed the market wonderfully. This can be attributed to the vory reduced point prices had previously reached, and to the ability of many to hold. The stock market wai in a great degree prepared for the pressure, and the effect was not, therefore, so great as many anticipated? quotations had been steadily settling down for several months previous, and a very slight depreciation brought them to a war standard. Many of the fancy stocks used so much In Wall street for speculation, aro much below their real value, even in the ovont of a protracted rupture in our foreign relations. Beilroad stocks would not be much depreciated in real value by a collision with Mexico, although at first the market value might be materially affected. Should tho money market become so much depressed that a suspen sion of specie payments by the banks, could not be avoid ed, and a suspension should take place, quotations for stock* would advance at once fifteen to twenty per cent, and everything else connected with finance and com merce would become inflated to as great an extent. Be fore such a point was reached, before the bank* were compelled to resort to the alternative of a tuspeniion, there weuld be a very serious depression in the market, which would result in the ruin of thousands. Fortunately, however, for the country, the commer elal classes have not extended their operations far beyond their Immediate resources?they have not yet got under greet headway, and have boen able to contract without producing any aeriou* revulsion* in commercial affair*. Had credits been much inflated, and had speculation in any of our staple products been carried to any extent, the effect of tho war accounts from the South would have been most disastrous. There would have been such a panic as we have never before experienced, and we havo no doubt an immediate impension of specie payment* would have been the only alternative. Prices for every thing were, on the contrary, very much reduced. Provisions, breadstuff*, cotton, and all our staples, ruled very low, and fancy stocks, particular ly, were held at the lowest point*. Stock* which a year ago were selling at eighty and ninety per cent, are now held at forty and fifty, and a similar contraction In all other thing* exist*. We were not, thereforo, unprepared for the blast which ha* swept through the country, and it Sa well for us that we saw the approaching storm. Its eflfcet will consequently be less injurious, and we shall be better able to meet the demand upon us, necessary to ensure a speedy and successful termination of the dif ficulties with which we are at present surrounded. The anxiety for further intelligence from the sceno of strife is most intenso. The suspense under which w e labor is worso than tho roost unfavorable reality, and un til something more definite and decided than wo have yet received comes to hand, there mnst be a partial sus pension of business. The absence of accounts leads every one into the most alarming anticipations, and the dangers and difficulties are magnified, and daily increase in strength. There are many who do not feel disposed to believe one half of what ha* been received from the ?eat of war, and continue their operations perfectly In different to the reports in circulation, and totally Inde pendent of the general opinion. If their anticipations prove correct they will reap a rich harvest, and their eonfidcnce will give them fortunes, while a reverse now will not be attended with results so disastrous as experi enced when the news from the Rio Grande first came to hand. Should the next decided accounts be favorable, or even that received be partially confirmed, the stock mm ket would be so greatly relieved that prices would i vance with the greatest rapidity j while, on the other hand,we do not anticipate any very bad effect upon prices of many stocks, npon the receipt of bad news. The mar ket is now in a position to feel the influence of favorable advices from any qnarter, without being much effected hy any thing of an unfavorable character. We annex our usual table of comparative quotations for the past week. Compared with prices current Inst Saturday, there ha* been a falling off of *eve ral per cent, but since Monday there has been very little change, end In several Instances there has been an im provement in the rat**:?

The itock market first felt, the effect of the war news on Monday, and it will ba perceived that since that time the market hai been unsettled, but price* hare fluctuated very little either way.

These variations are a vary trifling per cent of the aggregate movement, and are such as may be expected in the best regulated bank*. From the report of the Chairman of the Board of Pub lic Works, which has just come to hand, it appear* that the whole amount appropriated for the construction of the Welland Canal was ?500,000 Halifax currency?the amount expended up to the 31st March, ?673,973, and by the detailed estimate, ?178,394 is still required, of which the sum of ?131,544 is needed for tho service of 1848. The Board, it appear*, had been induced to recommend the adoption of the Lake Erie level in the enlargement of the locks, upon consideration of tho very great advantage* to be had therefrom, and from being led to believe that these improvements could be effected within the amount of the appropriation, in which they have been disap pointed by the miscalculations of the resident Engineer. A considerable enlargement of the trunk of the canal, and alteration in the curves, has been rendered necessary for the passage of a larger class of vessels. Another stoamboat lock has been constructed below 8L Catha rines, by which the advantages of a port on the lake are afforded to that town, and the portion of the Orand River navigation connected with the Welland Canal, greatly improved. The work, however, notwithstanding the large amount expended, is not executed in that substan tial manner anticipated, although it affords an uninter rupted navigation for the full sited vessels for which its enlarged dimensions were adapted.

It is I a Scientific Chemical Compound of Iodine that has perform ed such astonishing cures of long standing, after every other remedy had failed, that it would stagger belief if they could not be substantiated by the inost respectable persons who have been cured. It permaneutly and effectually enres RHEUMATISM, either chronic or inflammatory.

When the humau frame receives a shock, either from heat, cold, fatigue, or other causes, the weakest organ of the sys tem suffers most. One person will have a cough, the lungs being the weakest organ ; his neighbor, rheumatism, the muscular aid cellular tissue being the weakest ; another, en larged gland* and swellings, the glandular system being the w eakest, tic. When you have an organ thus suffering, the more direct your application to the part* diieased, the better the prospect of relief. DR ROAKE'S IODINE LINIMENT. produces a healthy action in the diseased part, strengthens, ?uvigorates, aud restores it to perfect health. It only want* to I be tried to satisfy the most skeptical of the restoring power of this most valuable Liniment.

Not a day passes without bringing the most interesting results from the use of Dr. ROAKE'SJODINE LINIMENT. ASTONISHING CURE OK RHEUMATISM, AND DISEASES or Hir JOINT OF TWENTY TEARS' ITANDINO. Gentlemen?1 feel it a duty to state for the benefit of tin public, the astonishing cure of myself, which is as follows:? For the last tw enty rear* 1 have been troubled with rheuma tism; I could not walk without a cane or crutch : the pain was excruciating, so much so that I could not sleep nights. The disease finally settled in my hip joint: the the thigh became elongated or pushed out of its socket by the paiu aud inflam mation: the cords became contracted so as to throw my knee forward, and drew my foot backward, so the point* of my toes barely touched the ground when I walked. My health wait so much impaired, I made up my mind that the disease was so firmly seated that nothing could benefit me; 1 had tried the very best physicians and all of the sure cures, without relief. 1 was advised by a friend to try Hoake's Iodine Liniment, which I consented to without faith; but before I had used one bottle 1 found relief?it reduced the inflammation and ex tracted the pain. I continued to use it freely for six week*; the cords became relaxed, the leg resumed its former appear ance, the paiu and inflammation has all subsided, and, in fact, I am perfectly well; I walk without cane or crutch, and am attending daily to my business to the joy and comfort of my family, A. HEBARD, 74 John street. Facts are stubborn cases: every day briugs more evidence of the value of Roake's Iodine Liniment. Feelings of gratitude aud the good of my fellow creatures who muy be afflicted in the same way, induces me to state the astonishing cure of my child, which is as follows: Three years ago he wa? attacked with a swelling upon the side of his neck, which grew so large that it turned nis head to one side. It finally broke, discharging large quantities of matter, and kept on discharging until he was reduced to a mere skeleton. He suffered paiu indescribable. 1 employed the best physi cians and msde use of a great many remedies without benefit. 1 made up my mind he inust die. I was induced by a friend who knew the healing powers of Roake's Iodine Liniment to try it. I am happy to say that I had not used one bottle be fore the sores commenced healing. and the swelling and in flammation subsided, and before! had used the second buttle he was perfectly well.

THE ATLANTIC WHITE LEADJCOMPANY having completed their Wodis/are now ready to execute orders for pure White Lead, both Dry and Oround in Oil, to almoat any extent that may be wanted. The Company hare spared no expense in the erection of the Works which would teod, in thelrsat degree, to the improvement of the Lead, having availed, hemsehes of every modern improvement for that purpose. Being well aware, from our longGunilisrity with the differ ent leads sold in our market, that by far the greater proportion sold as such hiu been, and still is greatly adulterated with Barytes, an article of mineral production, much heavier than White Lead, and in itself postessingno virtue ol any pigment whatever, it being, when mixed with oil. almost transparent, and in fact, having nothing but iu specific weight to recom mend it, the Trustees of the Atlantic White Lead Company have passed, unanimously, the following resolution, vix:? "Resolved, That in view of manufacturing only a prima article, the Atlantic White Lead Company will make but one ' quality of Whita Lead, both Dry and Uround in Oil; that to ! be a strictly pure, genuine article, and perfectly free from any i adulteration whatever, which the Company will warrant as , such to all who may purchase their Lead." Purchasers, therefore, may be well assured that every de- i pandence may be placed in the purity of every pound ol White Lead['manufactured and sold by the Company, which Iiuraness will not only tend to the greater durability of the 'auit^but will be found much more economical in its use, even in the most common description of painting^ owing to the body or covering quality it possesses, thereby giving s far better finish with two coats, than the adulterated Whi Paint would with three, of which every painter will bear wit ness. The Company also manufacture Red Lead and Litharge, and have for sale a variety of Paints Oround in Oil, viis? Verdigris, Black Paint, Yellow Ochre, Spanish Brown, Paria Oreen, Brunswick Oreen, kc., Itc. Having been anpoltneil Oeneral Agent* for the Company all orders should be directed to us.
