NEW YORK HERALD. | vew Work, Sun.lay, June '48, 1*40. Our Relation* wltli Mexico?Settlement of Our DIAlcultleit?Will the War Continue > The iwtelligenue lately received from Mexico, appears to he of a very contradictory character. On one day we lenrn that General Paredes has inarched to ooperatc with Arista, to act on the offensive against General Taylor; 011 the next day, that Mexican privateers had captured several American vessels ; then we hear of the arrival of a special messenger in Washington, with a pro position for peace, from the Mexicans ; the next ilny, that Mr. P.ikenham had received in?trnctions to offer the mediation of England ; then, that ne gotiations for a treaty of peace were actually going on in Washington ; and, lastly, that Paredea had left the city of Mexico, with ten thousand men, for the north, " to effect some arrangement with the Americans." Now. of all these rej?orts, which are we to be lieve ! Thero must be some truth, ia so many rumors. It will bo recollected that on the 15th instant, we published a letter from our correspondent in Pensacola, containing a rumor that the steam frigate Mississippi brought a messenger, with n proposition for peace, from the Mexican govern ment. It was stated by our correspondent, that it was considered not a little singular, that during the existence of a war, two gentlemen in the pub lic service of the United States, ono with das patches from our Pacific fleet on his person, should be permitted to pass unmolested through Mexico and remain a day or two in its capital, unless they were requested by I'uredes to convey some intimation for pence to our government. It is not a little singular, also, that this same rumor should find itself in New Orleans about the same time that it was received by us, if there was no truth in it. It is strange, too, that the letter writers m Washington, should continue to assert that there would soon be peace with Mexico, if Dr. Woods, one of the messengers who came in the Missis sippi, had not been the bearer of a peaceful pro position from the city of Mexico. Of the truth of this, however, we shall ascer certain in good time ; but meanwhile what is doing in Washington 1 We lean that several leading Senators in Washington, are now making strenuous efforts Tor the ending of the war, and it is thought that they will succeed. McDulfio, Calhoun, Webster, ure among those who take the most active part \n this etlort; and die latter lately led oil" in a speech in the Senate, upon the bill reported by Mr. Benton, providing for the organization of vo lunteer forces to be called into service in case of the prosecution of the war with Mexico. After enumerating the various expenses of the war, and the only modes of raising a revenue ade quate to their payment, he closes by recommend ing immediate overtures of pence to be madu to the Mexican government. However politic, viewed in a Certain light, this course would be, we fancy that it would not be an exceedingly po pular one, in the present state of things. It , ?would, moreover, be a great compromise of dig- . nity for us, us a nation, to ?ue for peace to Mexi co, as though we were actually fearful that our funds would run out, and men could not be rais ed in sufficient numbers to cany on the war. It i? not for us to mnke peaceful overtures. This : war was begun by Mexico, and upon her rest the responsibility of its result. It is our duty as a nation, to prosecute it with vigor, and if necessa ry, to march our armies even to the capital of Mexico. When the utter futility of any further attempts to curry on the war on their part is seen by the Mexican leaders, then will be the time for peaceful overtures; but they must come from Mexico, and not from the United States. The doubts which have existed in the minds of many, in regard to the entire ease with which our government could prosecute this war to its furthest extremity, are fast failing away. The recent rich and ridiculous address of Arista to the American soldiery, exhibits in more glowing co lors than auy description could do, the true state of things in the Mexican ranks. The small sum at which a Mexican soldier estimates himself, lias led General Arista to believe that Americans are made of the same material, and that three hundred and twenty acres of land would be an irresistible inducement for desertion. With such men to deal with, we certainly have nothing to fear. The idea that any interference 011 the part of England, either in Mexico or upon the Pacific coast, may be anticipated, is,we think, a false one. The mortgages of property in Mexico and Cali fornia, in English hands, are held by individuals, and not by the government, which latter is not responsible for them iu any manner. England will be very careful about embroiling herself in a war with this country for the protection of a few of her capitalists. If their mortgages have run out, wo advise them to foreclose immediately. We have no desire for a long and protracted war, but we cannot discover any reason for of fering terms of peace to Mexico. Let us sustain the government, heart and hand, let them prose cute the war with vigor, and peace will soon be brought about, withput the slightest compromise of national honor. If there is a proposition from the Mexican government, let it be listened to with the attention that otters from n weak nation should ever receivo from a more powerful 011". We can atiord to be magnanimous, and our enemies will find that the generous nets of "Old Hough and Ready" to the wounded Mexicans on the Rio Grande, and the restoration of private property, including the plate of Arista and Ampudia, taken in war, will characterize the policy of the United States in all her wars with other nations, espe cial!/ with Mcxico. It i? to be hoped, therefore, that when l'aredes reaches Monterey, he wil| see the necessity of" elfeeting some arrangement with the Americans," without a resort to nnothcr battle. The Mexican war is the only question to absorb the public mind, for the present. Th* Rkported Instruction ov St. Jotin.? In another column will be found an necount, re published from our afternoon edition of yesterday, of the destruction of the city of St. John, New foundland, by fire. There has been no extensive conflagration in that city since 1N1K In the three years, 1816. 1817, 1*18, tin- city suffered severely from three successive fires. The account which we publish to-day, represents the entire city as having been consumed ; but this report is doubt less exaggerated. At all events, there seems to be httle doubt of the occurrence of a verv disastrous conflagration in that city. This is the fourth time within a year ihat the Briush North American provinces have been visited with a calamitous fire. Quebec has been but lately visited, for the third time within a year, with an awful calamity, resulting in a dread fnl lo? of life and property ; and now 8t John, the oapital of auo her province of British Ame r.ca, has been afflicted by another tremendous calamity. We shall prcbably have the particulars in a dav ?f*w Veaa Citt Qvaan I* Alhh -The jtrgut of th* 2Tth inet iayi:?Th* New York City 1 ?otr4?, on* of Om most soldier like and we<l-drilled corj.t that we re RTlect <0 har# aeon, pas**> through town yeiterday afternoon, 011 their return from an excuriion to Troy.

The ftine ral. which hsd t>e*n announced t* Uk? placs on ffca mk* day, was >/erirl until to day \Toumon DirricwLTI*#.?We regret ?o perceive that Hancock county, Illinois, is again the scene of anti-Mormon disturbances. By the last accounts received from that place, it appears that the anti Mormons were about to make an attack on Nau> voo, the citizens of which were armed, and pre pared to resist them. The rendezvous of the former was at Warsaw, and they had sent out to the neighboring counties to collect an additional force, when they found the inhabitants of Nauvoo prepared for resistance. All friends of order must regret this unfortunate ditiiculty. An open state of lawlessness and vio lence always bring* more evils in its train, than the mere loss of life and destruction of property immediately resulting from it. It unsettles the minds of peacefully-disposed citizens, and makes them have more dependence on physical force, than the more judicious and impartial redress of the law. Whatever complaints may have been entertained by the enemies of the Mormons, against that sect, it would have been much better policy, as well as more consonant with equi'y and luw, to have permitted them quiotly to retire to the homes they had marked out for themselves in the far West, than thus to attempt not only to eject, but to ex terminate them. It is very orobable thev would all have emigrated within a year; and it would have been greatly more adviaable to have allowed them to evacuate their settlements, without dis turbing the peace of the community by an at tempt to eject them by violence. Hut, further more, the attempt will doubtless fails for, besides having the laws of the land in their favor, they have every inducement to resist, to death, the attempt to drive them from their homes. Moreover, persecution of any sort drives the warm-hearted and generous into a defence and advocacy of the persecuted ; apd we find that numbers of citizens, notwithstanding that they disagree in doctrine and principle with the Mor mons, havo still declared their determination to help them to defend their homes from the assaults of their enemies. These men have armed them selves, and ha've made every preparation fot a determined resistance. But what makes this forcible attempt the more reprehensible, is the fact, that the business con cerns of the Mormons are not as yet woundup, and that, if they were forced to leave at this junc ture, hundreds of them, who are now in treaty for tho sale of their property, would be thrown out upon the world as paupers. When people are in such a strait, with prospective poverty and starvation staring them in the face, they are upt to fight desperately. Should the Mormons and anti-Mormons have actually come to blows, we fear the result will be disastrous in the extreme. Ilad the Mormons been suffered to depart ]>eace ably to their destination in the far We?t, they would, most probably, have founded there a free republic, upon a basis somewhat resembling our j constitution. Such a state, growing up on the shores of the Pacific, would have been but an ex tension of those principles of treedom which have germinated already so widely on this continent, and which are destined to spread over its entire face. Why, then, throw an obstacle in their way! Let them have lull time allowed them for their ' departure?above all, let them not bo turned out without the means of subsistence, to starve in tho wilderness. We trust that wiser counsels may have prevailed among those who were rashly de termined to attack Nauvoo. If the " Regulators" want to fight, let them go to Mexico, where they can have a fight without infringing on the laws of ; their country or the rights of their neighbors. With the dispute of these two parties, or its cause, we have nothing to do. We are not dis posed to interfere in their quarrels, but we speak what we are convinced must be the sentiments of every good citizen, in condemning any attempt | to kindle the tlaine of civil war. Obedience to the laws should be maintained at all hazards, and a resistance to the existing authotities should be promptly suppressed If not, the country may again be disgraced with another scene of , violence like that which attended the death o* Joe Smith and the church-burnings in Philadel phia. The Projected Occupation ok Oai.ifok.via.?It is said there is a design entertained in some quar ters, in Washington, to organize a volunteer force of one thousand men, to proceed to California, for tho purpose of taking armed occupation of that fertile country, and colonizing it. It is also stated that the plan has received the sanction of the President, but that it is to be kept secret until a proper time arrives for putting it in execution. The force is to be drawn from New York and New England, and is to be com posed of hardy mechanic*, who are willing to settle in the country. Already a company of artillerymen are on the point of leaving this port for that destination, in the U. S. store-ship Lex ington. This looks very like extending the area of freedom to some purpose. The idea is a capi tal one, and the enterprise is sure to succeed. Here is an excellent opportunity for emigrating. Movements of Travellers.

At 6 o'clock, the American band, attached to the 6th Infantry regiment, entered the square, and in a style peculiar, gave many of our national airs. The music drew to gether a large concourse of Mexican citizens, who seemed highly pleased, and no doubt went away with feeling* softened towards a people whom the fortunes of war have thrown amongst them, and upon whom they have been taught to look with distrust and fear. The Mexi cans are exceedingly fond of music, and, generally speaking, are gooi judges of its execution. Nothing could have a I aster or moie pleasing tendency, than the frequent recurrence of scenes such as the square pre sented oa Sunday evening. Besides iU effect upon the Mexicana, it brings to the recollections of our own peo* pie. many sweet remembrances Upon the 8th lust., alter dtio investigation, it became manifest that the charges preferred against Oeoige Ray, of the Washington regiment, Louisiuna volunteers, were not of that serious character which had been at first supposed.

New Orleans Picayune, June 19. MISSOURI. Great activity has prevailed at Fort Leavenworth since orders were received to lit out an expedition to Santa Fe and every thing will be in readiness for the roccp- | tion of the volunteers. The regular troops under Col. Kearney s command are glad that they are called into active service, and long for an opportunity to rival the reputation of the second regiment The general expec tation with them as well as with all woo aw acquainted in New Mexico is. that they will have a large lores at Santa Fe. and that those who go out will have plenty or hard fighting; wo have no fears though of the result un less they aro overpowered by numbers, or subdued by famine. Col. Kearney is not only one of our best ofll cers but he w ill command the utmost confidence of all persons, both in and ont of-the army, and there is on this iide of the river a general desire to serve under hirn what can be done they believe he can do, for no troops ever wore assembled who had more faith in man. On last Wednesday, Capt. Moore and part of a company from the new tort (Fort Kearney,) passed through this place to join this expedition. The Dragoons are expect- j ed to leave soon, and the volunteers will follow as soon as they can get ready. The Dragoons are prepared to march instantly, but they have to wait on account of the volunteer corps. There w as a good deal of excitement both at this place and Fort Lcavrtiworth on Thursday evening, about some of the Santa le traders.

S. sloop of war Albany, was launched yesterday forenoon, at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Long before 11 o'clock, which was the time appointed, crowds had gathered upon every spot in the vicinity where there was the slightest chance of obtaining* view. The docks in the Navy Yard, the decks and rigging of the ships North Carolina, Macedonia, Lexington, Boston,Preble, and other vessels lying there, wero covered with people. The roofs of houses in the vicinity, and the shores of Williamsburg, and even upon the opposite side of the river, exhibit ed a scene of densely packed human beings. The water around the dock was filled with tittle boats, sloops, and excursion boats, in which were peo ple, all anxious to see the launch. In the yard, and in the most eligible location, several platforms were erected, upon which sat the Court of Errors, and Common Council of the City of Albany, and the Common Councils of New York and Brook lyn. The pupils of the Deaf and Dumb Institu tion were also present, and a great number of la dies. Eleven o'clock was the time appointed for the launch, but the sloop did not go off until twen ty five minutes past that time, while all eyes

were straining to catch a look at her. She glided smoothly and gracefully, as the stereotyped phrase is, " into her native element." There were on board of her. Captain Hudson, who had the ma nagement of the luunch, other officers of the Navy, and a number of ladies and gentlemen.? Shu did not go far into the water, nor did she go with much force. As she went oil", the band from one ol the ships struck up "Hail, Columbia," while the shouts of the assembled thousands rent the air, whose wind was waving the star spangled banner on the stern of the Albany.

She is a beautiful model, being very sharp, and built for fast sailing, as well as strength. She has one deck, and only a single row of ports, nnd mounts sixteen 32 pounders, and four eight inch Paixhau guns, 64 pounders. She will carry, all told, 200 men, ana six months provision, and 100 days water, carried in forty-lour iron tanks, hold ing 22,000 gallons. She was commenced in Jane, 1841^, and was planned and her building superin tended by Francis Grice, Esq., Naval Construc tor, at the Xaw Yard, Brooklyn. She will be rigged an4 ready for sea in about 60 days?al though her destination is not yet known. Iter en tire cost will be ?129,000, which is much less in proportion than most of the United States vessels that have lately been built. She is named after the city of Albany, and in return for this, a num ber of the wealthy residents of that city hav? ob tained a very tine painting of the city, which is to adorn the cabin. This painting is at present in the Lyceum of the Navy Yard. Theatrical and Musical* Park?Mr. Marble'* engagement closed last evening.

In addition, 1 Mr. Freer will api.ear in the patriotic play 0f " William Tell." With such attractions, wo predict a crowded house. Casti v. Oarhen.?The performances of the magnifi cent orchestra belonging to this establishment, in con junction with the delightful ocean breeze, attract a great number of visiters to this celebrated place of re creation, nightly. We venture to say that no place of amusement in this city offers so many inducements to visiters aa Castle Garden. We would remind onr down town readers that there will be, aa usual on Sunday*, a sacred concert this evening, conducted by talent of the first order. We will givo an intimation of what will take place this evening, by saying that overtures ftom theoiatorio of St. Paui, the Redemption, Love Feast, Ua. Ste , will be performed by an orchestra which is ac knowledged to be inferior to none in the country. These attractions will certainly fill Castle Garden to-night, or we are much mistaken.

It is ftlso reported that upwards of fifty soldiers perished in blowing up houses. Annexed are the detail* received [From the Quebec Gazette, June 24.] Capt. Scarrow, of the brig Blucher, which arrived here this morning from Harbor Orase, Newfoundland, bring* Information of the destruction, bv fire, of the city of St John. The captain reporti that tne fire commenc ed on the Oth init, and wai still burning on the 12th in>t. the day he sailed. A report was current when he left Harbor Orace. that the whole city, except two stores, had been destroyed ; that about fifteen vessels in the port had been consumed, and that fifty soldiers had perished in blowing up houses to arrest the progress of the flames; but as regards tbe truth of these latter particulars. Captain Scarrow can not vouch, not having been able to procure corroct in formation before his departure. Since the above intelligence was communicated to us, we may mention that Halifax papers to the 18th instant have come to hand, but they make no mention of any such accident having occurred. Notwithstanding this, the statement above given may he substantially correct, the communication between these places being some what irregular. St. John, Newfoundland, suffered severely from fire during the three successive years, 1814. 1817, and 1818. On the first oocaaion 130 houtos were burned, the pe cuniary loss amounting to upwards of ?100,000, and liOO persons driven to seek for habitations. Religious Intelligence.

The proofs are increasing, notwithstanding the falling off of some, that the Catholic movement is quietly and steadily going onward; anJ that it is becoming more and more manifest that it has not depended upon any individual agent or agents, but has been, in and out of the Church, from its Divine Head."

A great meeting of the Jews from all parts of Europe has recently been held in Frankfort, in which they voted that there is nothing obligator in the use of the Hebrew in their worship, and accordingly that it was best to re tain it only in part, as a badge of their nationality and a band of union. Also, on full discussiou, that the Messiah is already come, the present toleration and comfort which they now enjoy being what is meant by the promised Messiah. Also, that there is nothing to forbid their freely blending with the nations among whom they reside. Letters from Romo announce the perversion to the Roman Catholic faith, of the Rev. G.

The doctor wont, accom panied with Mr. Cardosa, and after an interview, left tba prison, when Dr. Hines told Cardosa that Simmons had told him (Hines) where the money was, saying it was in a house in Catharine street, but that the person whose house it was in, waa very respectable ; therefore, he did not wish it to be known who ha was, but he would go alone and get the money. Hines then proceeded, on Fri day afternoon, to Catharine street with the view of get ting the money, but finding ha was watched by Mr*. Car dosa. he returned to his office in Duane street, without procuring the money. Upon Cardosa entering Dr Hines' office the same afternoon, he there saw a young man by the name of Abraham Ly< ns, who, becoming alarmed, knowing that he was suspected, up and said, " Mr. Car dosa, 1'lT tall you all about your money, and throw my self upon your mercy." Dr. Hinas endeavored to stop Lyons from telling the story, but finding there was uo chance made a virtue of necessity, and said they would show Cardosa where the money was deposited ; conse quently, they proceeded to the porter-house of M r Joseph Murphy, in Chatham street, and under the stoop they discovered a handkerchief containing $0M of the stolen money. Lyons was immodiately taken into custody, and was locked for examination by Justice Osborne. The doctor stepped out, and has not been seen since. Burglary?The leather ttoro.

Saturda>, June 07??6 P. ,11. The market opened heavy again this morning, and prioes fell off all round a fraction. The tale* weie not large, but the tendency is toward* a further decline. We look for a depressed condition of the market until alter the fourth of July, and perhap* until after there* turn of operator* from the watering place*, alter which the bear* will have their hand* full to keep price* down. At the flr*t Board, Long Island fell off i per cent; Har lem, J; Norwich and Worcester, 1; Morri*tCanal, Reading, j; Pennsylvania #'* went up }, and Ohio 8'* closed at yesterday's prices. At the second Board there was a slight improvement on prices current in the morning, and the transactions in Harlem were quite large. We have no confidence in these little advances, as they are but temporary. The season is against the fancies, and, as they are rather sen sitive plants, we have no doubt the warm weather will wilt them down considerably below their present po sition.
