NEW YORK HERALD. \rw Vurk, Thursday, July l?, 1N?6. The Weekly Heialtl. Ttus publication will bo issued at 8 o'clock on ffetturday. It will be embellished with a beautiful engraving of Fort Brown, in Texas, the place that withstood thr bombardment of one hundred and sixty hour*, from the Mexicans. New* from tCurope. The Cambria is now in her twelfth day, and her news may, therefore, be expected in this city to-morrow or next day?perchance to-night. The TurUT?Thr Warrhoutlng BUI?and llw Sub-Treasury. Congress has now been in session nearly eight months, and neither of the above bills have jkissed, and what is more, it is yet extremely doubtlul wneuier inejr wiu pass mis session in uu/ should the term be carried into the next. There appears to be no union of feeling between the two parties, or even between different branches of the sutne party, or between the two Houses. The Senate has on its table, several bills from the Lower House, among which are the tariff and the sub-trea.-ury; and while they have been weeks waiting for concurrence, the Senate has been dragging along slowly with the warehousing bill, which is upon the eve of passing, in a shape so defective and useless, that its repeal will be called for in less than twelve months. The wings have opposed this bnl as it was originally introduced, inch by inch, and although they well knew it coidd not be defeated, they have succeedrd in sticking on such amendments as make it almost inoperative. The only point in the bill of any value to the commercial classes, is that giving a privilege of storing goods one year, and bad the time been three years, it would have be^p pf some real service. In a country like this, where the tariff is altered almost every other year, we require a warehouse bill of the most unlimited and liberal character. If we had a warehouse bill of that nature now in operation, there would not be so much alarm among the importers, whenever changes in the tariff were proposed, as is now experienced. Whenever a reduction in the tariff is in contemplation, importations for the time become very limited; whereas, with a warehousing system, the importations would be more regular, as they would at all times, be governed by the domestic demand for uuiiauiu (IUUI1, anu me mreign uemanu lor exportation. Our foreign trade would not be periodically interrupted, as it now is, and our markets would not at one tune be almost bare of foreign manufactures, and at another time filled to overflowing. We have our doubts about the warehousing bill passing the House in the shape it will be sent in from the Senate. It is the general impression now that there will also b? a division between the Senate and the House in relation to the Tariff bill. The debate In the Senate is likely to be lengthy, as the leaders of both parties must have something to say upon the question. The Senate will not consent to a wholesale revolution in this department of our commercial system, and it would not surprise us if the modifications and alterations proposed were lost between the two houses. The Independent Treasury Dill appears to have been lost sight of amidst the excitement at iviiuuig uic uriuiic upon uic larui nn(l uie warehouse bills. An issue of Treasury notes for ten or tilteen millions of dollars will without doubt be authorized, and it is possible this may interfere with the provisions of tho independent Treasury Bill, as it passed the House of Representatives, and with the specie clause in any shape. It is with regret that we are compelled to say that an early or immediate adjournment of Congress, is out of the question. The session will be carried into September at least, and how much farther, is difficult at present to tell. Tke Myatrrlout Mission to Mexico?The Special Messenger?Who la he ) In our paper of the 11th instant, we copied from the Orleans Timtt of the 26th ult., the following paragraphs:? ' An eminent commercial bouae of this city hai received instructions to charter a veinel, either for Vera Cm* or Tampico. for the purpose of conveying thither a gentleman, who ha? recently arrived at the North from Kngland. together with four companion!. " The latter to that effect, which hai been exhibited to na, atatea that the party in queition, having powerful reaaona for avoiding tha Havana route, applied to our government. at Washington, for permiaaion to proceed to Mexico unmolested, and to charter a veaael with that view at New Orleaiu. " The request wan not only granted, tint imtructiom 1, V. - ? 1- I .- , 1 <- t- - the object of the traveller*, by transferring tliem on hoard of an English man-of-war, from whence they can he easily landed at either of the above-mentioned places. The vessel will be ready to leave by the 1st of July. "The gentleman in question is a near relative of the Mexican Ambassador in London, and is waiting probably at New York tor despatches by the Caledonia steamer, now due. His movements may have some connexion with the existing state of affair* in Mexico. At all events the inference is not improbable.'' We have ascertained since our last that the above statement is substantially correct. But the editor of the Timrt is in error when he says that the " gentleman in question (his name by-the-by is Morphy,) is a near relative of the Mexican Ambassador in London." Such is not the case. The similarity of the names of the two gentlemen, that of the Mexican Mmitter in London being Murphy, ('hough a native ofMexico, he is^of Irish extraction,) is no doubt the cause of the trifling mistake of our New Orleans contemporary. Now, respecting Mr. Morphy,we purpose saying a word or two. Like Mr. Murphy, the Mexican Ambassador, British blood llowg in his veins. But in old, not in new Spain, he first saw the light. We believe that he was born in Cadiz,some forty-two years ago; but left it to reside in London, where he commenced business as a wine merchant. It did not answer. He (bund the trade a losing one; and, eventually, gave it up. In the old world he gave up the contest with fortune, in order that he might continue it with better success in the new. He came to Mexico; and there, we are told, as an exchange broker, soon realized something handsome. But now he resolved on playing a higher game in the philosophy of life. From being a negotiator of loans he became a lentler of money himself. In a very few years, not many of the agiotitlat of Mexico were in better circumstances than Dr. l-'rancisco Morpny. now, r>e u observed, he made his money by lending funds to the government at a rate of interest varying, it is said, from 200 to 400 per cent per annum, and as high as 700 per cent have been realized by loan contractors in a very short time. As a security on such loans the receipts at the custom house are pledged to the aqiotiita, who receives his money sooner or later, according as trade is brisk. It is vcrygseldom indeed that government fails in performing their engagements? for if they did who would advance them money in future 1 But when there is a revolution the agiotistat run great risk?for then, unless they have great interest with the new comers into power, their names are.sure to be erased from the list of claimants on the treasury. In a predicament of this sort, we learn that Morphy found himself, in the year 1836. His fnend, Santa Anna, in consequence of his defeat and capture at San Jacinto, was no longer President of Mexico. In the sight of Rustamentc? Santa Anna's rival and successor?Morphy found no favor. In vain were his efforts to obtain a settlement of his accounts. At length, in the autumn of 1841, he hit upon a plan, it is said, for the relief of his embarrassments. We may suppose that he said to himself, " if my friend Santa Anna were in power, my claim would be settled; I will get up a revolution in his favor." And he did #et up a revolution ! From town to town he hurried?the bearer of Santa Anna's instruction! to hi* various adherent*. On hi* return to the city M* 4 # > of Mexico, he arranged matters there. But being , seen, it is asserted, in the aot of bribing some soldiers of the garrison, he had to claim the protection of Mr. Pakenham, the British Ambassador, in whose house he lay concealed till the struggle between Santa Anna and the constituted authorities wa.? over. Every one knows how that struggle ended. It ended in the instalment of Santa Anna as President. Of the loaves and fishes now it lus disposal, it is fair to suppose that his friend Morphy largely partook. He was allowed to ohoose for himself. With a handsome fortune he retired to England; and soon afterwards was appointed by Santa Anna, Mexican Consul in London. Now the question is, what takes him to Mexicol Has he gone thither to give Paredet the benefit of his counsels 1 Wo should think not, for Purede* deprived him of his consulship?of the consulship conferred upon him by Santa Anna. Has he gone to Mexico on business of a mercantile nature 1 An unlikely supposition, seeing that the bulk of his property is in land, and land, too, in the neighbor hood of Loudon. We believe, l'rom what we hear, that he has gone to Mexico to prepare the wuy for tlie coming of Santa Anna. The success of hi* enterprise is doubtful. Paredes is made of " sterner stuff" than the generality of Mexican Presidents. If he is forewarned of Morphy's design?, he will catch, and perhaps hung him, before he has time to play hide and seek a second time, in the house of the British Ambassador/ But suppose that Paredea is ejected from the Presidency, what effect will that event have on our relations with Mexico 1 Will Santa Anna exhibit less pugnacity than Paredes 1 We think not. All foreigners ho dislikes, but the Anglo-Americans he detests. We do not doubt that ; rather than see Mexico a portion of the United States republic, he would strenuously support Franco and England in their scheme for the establishment of a monarchy in Mexico. Some time ago, it was stated in tho English papers, that Santa Anna was friendly to that scheme ; and had even sent to Lord Aberdeen a formal offer of his aid. We suspect there w?-re some grounds for that report. Time, how i ever, is the great expounder of political riddles ; soon we shall have the explanation of this one. 1 Whatever may be the nature of Mr. Morphy's mission, we may be sure that, it will not check ( the progress of the American army. Not merely something, but every thing is rotten in the State of Mexico. So rickety is the fabric of its govern- , ment, that neither Paredes nor Santa Anna, nor 11 foreign prince, can prop it up. The thunder of our cannon at Palo Alto shook it to its foundation. Another such battle, and it will erumblo into dust! We may as well mention that Mr. Morphy, prior to his departure for New Orleans, spent a week at Washington. We do not doubt that, while there, his visits to the British Minister, were both longer and more numerous than those he paid the American Secretary of State. Dreadful Fire In NantuckeWTI&e Town In R. al in | We are favored by a friend with the following account of a disastrous fire that occurred on Monday night, in Nantucket, Mass. It commenced on Monday night, about eieven o'clock, in E. G Kelly's jewellry store on Main street, and was raging when the boat, in which our informant was pas| senger left, the next morning. The following is the extent of its ravages at the time the I boat left. The square bounded by Maine, Centre, Broad and Federal streets, and all the buildings opposite are in ruins. Trinity Church, and all the buildings on North Water street, as far as and including Aaron Mitchell's store ; Main street from G. II. lliddell's to Straight wharf. Union street as far as, and including the building occupied by the town officers; Washington street, as far as, and including Captain Pease's, all burned to the ground. The above streets comprise almost the whole of the business part of the town, and there is every reason to fear that but little of the place is left standing. Some twenty houses were blown up with gunpowder in the hope of staying the destructive element, but without success, except in ?ne case, which was Doctor Ruggles' house in Orange street, which saved the remaining part of that block. It was rumored that several live? had been lost, but the confusion was eo great that no particulars were received by our informant. The following list comprises the names of a few of the sufferers :? E. k J. Kelly, W. H. (Jury, O. W. Macy, T. W. Cal der, J. B. Swain, <i k R. Price k Co., Citizen* Bank, Ex change lira ling Room. Henry Goodrich, Henry A.Kelly, Mitchell & Whitney. 8. Sc. F.

Coffin, Peter F. Ewen, J no. Cook. jr. k Co-, J. Eafton, jr., W. C. Swayne, and about five hundred more. The best part of the town is destroyed. We believe that Nantucket was visited by a severe fire in June, 1838, which destroyed property to the value of $200,000. Since then the people have generally been insured. The Boston Pott of yesterday, says: it c if i?i ii i'j it paiiengvr irum ^aniumei, Mil nigni, that at 10 o'clock A. M. the fire wai (till rnging, ?n?l that at lea?t one-third of the building* in town were destroyed. Omt Subscribers and the Postmasters.?We : received the following curious note from one of our subscribers yesterday:? WiTsareaD, N. Y , July 18, 1848. M*. J. O. Br*i?*tt:? Sir,?1 with you could inform me the reaion why I am charged 6 cents for the Hrrald going through thia post office to Scotland, when tho Sun and Exfren go for two centa. We are certainly at a loss to explain bow it ia that our friend is charged five cents instead of one and a half, or two, when, as be says, the 5tm and Exprea cost but two, and particularly as one and a half is the legal charge It may be that the postmaster is a man of discrimination, and knows that the Herald is well worth at least twice and a half as much as the other papers. We advise our friend to say to the postmaster, that although bis estimate in this respect is undoubtedly correct, yet that the law never contemplated anything of the kind, and that he cannot legally charge more than a cent and a half. Ittkrestiso Cask i.h i'uii^dilphta.?It will be recollected that some weeks sine?, Mr. Fisk of New Orleans was robbed on the Philadelphia route to New York, of a carpetbag containing 8400. This bag, with the remainder of Mr. F.'s baggage, had t>een placed in the hands of on? of the agents of the railroad company, and it disappeared, although Mr. F. found the remaining part in good order. Mr. F. has retained the services of an eminent lawyer of Philadelphia, and he begins an action against the railroad company to recover the amount of his loss, as they are considered responsible for the acta of those in their employ. This is a case which will be of the highest interest to travellers. Tax Campokma ExraDiTiorr?The U.S. ?hip Lexington sailed on Tuesday afternoen, under the command of Lieut.

Mrs. Spencer, wife of Eliphalet M. S. 1 Spencer, was shot through the body by ker hus- I band with a bullet from a revolving pistol, and died in a few minutes after receiving the wound. It appears that Spencer was married about fifteen months ago to a daughter of Mrs. Dobbin, of Jersey City, and that he and his wife have been staying for some time past at the house of his : motlier-in-liiw in Monti?nmi?rv street A serious disagreement had for some weeks existed between the wife and husband, and the night before last, at the instance of his v* ife's family. Spencer was arrested, as his conduct is alleged to have been extremely violent during the day ? nd evening, and the family were apprehensive for Mrs. Spencer's safety, should her liusband be left at large. When , he was arrested he?ak< d permission to be allowed to speak to his wife, for the purpose of making overtures of reconciliation. This was granted by the otficer, but his wife, who was in her bedroom, refused to unlock the door until requested by her brother, who was under the impression that her husband wished a reconciliation. i ii is *aiu uiai wnen spencer entereu me room, , lie asked his wife to iiccompuny him to prison.? This she relused; upon which he presented a I pistol nt her and pulled the trigger. It missed fire, but upon pulling the trigger a second time, he ac| femplished his Fatal purpose. As she turned to j : escape from him the ball entered her right shoul- j dt! and came out over the left breast, perforating i the luriKS in its passage. Po quick were his movements that the brother, who was standing behind | him, could not arrest his arm in time to prevent the murder. ' An inquest was held yesterday morning, and a i verdict returned in accordance with the lore- | ; going facts. An examination of the prisoner was | appointed to take place at twelve o clock yesterday, but he, by the advice of his counsel, declined to answer any questiqns, and waived bis right to be present at any examination that might be made. Depositions to prove the facts we have stated above, were taken before Judges Edwards and Griffiths, and the prisoner was fully committed to answer the charge of murder at the August term of the Hudson County Circuit Court. The term commences on the second Tuesday ia August. The prisoner is now in a cf-llof the city jail of Jersey City. He has retained Messrs. David Graham, Charles O'Connor, and Ogden Hoffman, of this city, to act as his counsel. Spencer is said to be about thirty or thirty-three years of nfe. He is also said tn be a relation of Joshua A. Spencer, of Utica. The deceased was about twenty-six years of age. The pistol with which the fatal act was committed, is a six-barrelled revolver. Five of the barrels were found loaded. According to the reports in Jersey city there seem to be some cu i ions and painful circumstances conncctcd wiih this deplorable event. Firk ?In the carpet factory of Finch & Co., at Bergen Hill, a large fire broke out which completely destroyed the entire premises, on Tuesduy evening. The firm hold a respectable reputation, and were deemed to be in comfortable circumstances. There is no positive certainty as to the direct cause and origin of the fire. The whole loss is estimated at about $4000. The stock and premises were only insured lor yiSUOO. lhe trequent losses sustained by fire latterly, in this and neighboring cities, should awaken the owners of large factories, stores and public buildings, to a true sense of the necessity of the most active vigilance on the part of themselves and caretakers. No large houses should be left without a careful watchman, and the ulinost diligence should be observed by all owners and holders of property. Packet Ship Havre.?This beautiful vessel, so famous for quick passages, leaves for Havre to- i day, with a large list of cabin passengers.? She goes out under Captain Ainsworth, her favorite commander. A list of the passengers may be found in another column. City Intelligence. The California Expedition.?The rails for Col. Stevenson's expedition were all filled on Friday last. Twelve companies were then offered, while only ten are required. Many, therefore, will be disappointed, as two or three companies have been raised since, which will not be accepted.? They are to muster about the 2()th. Completed.?Every vacancy was completed on j Friday the 10th inst., constituting the regiment for California, commanded by Colonel Stevenson.? Therfifop? nil adv^rtispm?nt? nftar that rlntn am totally Unauthorized by the Colonel, or any of his officers. Fire.?A fire broke out, about 7 A. M., yesterday morning, at No. 223 Mulberry street. It was soon extinguished by policeman Patten and Dolen. Boaid of Education.?A special meeting ( the Board was called for yesterday. Upon calling the roll, a quorum not having answered, the meeting was dissolved. Steamship Palmetto?Despatch.?The fine steam packet Palmetto left yesterday afternoon, at j 6 o'clock for Charleston, it being her regular day, having been only twenty-eight hours m port.? This packet has been exceedingly successful this season, and the regularity of her trips has given the public great confidence in her. She has made her passage to and from Chartoton, and her engines have not stopped a moment on either trip. This is pretty good evidence that they are of the right sort. Another Yacht.?The Coquette, from Boston, arrived last evening. Messrs. Perkins, Hasting*, and Chickering, came round in her, and are at the Astor. Accident on the Sound?On Tuesday night, l>etween i) and 10 o'cl.>ck, while the steamer Neptune on her way to Providence was off Huntington Light, she caine in contact with the schooner lolas, of Eaetport, Maine, bound with a load of plaster and lumber lor this port. As they struck, six persons, who ware on the schooner, jumped on board the steamer, and informed the Captain that there was still remaining on | board the schooner, a lady and child. By this time, however, the vessels were a considerable ; distance from each other, and before any effort for the rescue of the unfortunates could be made, ' the schooner, with all on board, went down.kThe lady's name was Murphy, and her child was about two years of age. The Captain of the ne|iiiiuf nmi seen me scnootier, ana oruerea tno steamer's course changed. But at the same time the schooner's course wu changed, which rendered the collision certain, and in a moment they lmd struck. The Captain of the Neptune, at the urgent solicitation of the passengers, returned to the city, although the Neptune is but slightly damaged. This is one statement. Another account mentions that the Neptune was without a captain or mate, and hence the sad disaster. We learn from Captain Wm. N. Peck, of the steamer Suffolk, from Stoney Brook, that he passed, yesterday morning, a quantity of lumber aud several barrels, and saw several barrels ashore at Ixmik Beach. They attracted his attention, and le<i him to suppose that there had been a wreck. He, therefore, sent his boat ashore, picked up a chest and several barrels, threw up a quantity of the cargo high on the beach, and , then sent'to the wreck master. It is, of course, supposed that the lumber, barrels, and chest belonged to the Iolas. The Suffolk, whin here, lays at the Fulton Market. Excursion Impositions?We have heard a number of complaints from persons who were passengers on board of a steamboat which was ad- j vertised for an excursioa around Sandy Hook lights, on Tuesday, and which only went about a mile below Fort Hamilton. There the captain refused to ire any farther,or return the money paid for the excursion. The steamboat afterwards got ' aground, and many of the passengers were obliged to come up in the Coney Island boat. Such 1mi positions are as bad for the boat as the passengers. We are informed that the anniversary of the 27th, 28th and 29th of July, is to be celebrated in a ... ,Y? i... ? ? vwiw.jr nuiiiuvi u. t |/ntriois residing in this city, St. John's College.?we have a full report of the proceeding# at the commencement at this College yesterday.

Mr. Purser offered nn explanation in relation to the Secretary, Mr. Valentine. That gentleman, had been a*kt'd to give his service*, in consideration of his acknowledged experience and capacity, and consented to perforin the onerous duties of Secretory. He (Mr. P.) stated this because he wan aware that Mr. Valentine had positively declined to receive any compensation for his services ; and therefore if he needed an additional Secretary it ought to be allowed. The Presidknt considered they oaglit to appoint another secretary in place of a reader. Mr- Brodxkick offered the following resolution, which was ordered to be laid on the table, and printed. Resolved, That the Committee on the Judiciary take into consideration the abolishment of the Superior Court of this city.

Brooklyn City Intelligence. Markiaoc Ceremony.?An interesting marriage ceremony took place at the Unitarian chinch, in Pierpont ?treet, y^terday alternoon. The bridegroom was Mr William Spencer, of the Arm ol McCnrdv, Aldrich and Spencer, N. Y., and the bride wan Miss Mary Jane Dunham. Mr. Spencer is a widower, aged about fifty, while Miss Dunham is a beautilul young girl of eighteen. Long before the time appointed lor tho ceremony, the churvh was tilled, principally with ladies, youriu and beautiful. At about 4 o clock, the bridal party entered the church, the bride and bridegroom bringing up the rear. The lormer was dressed in sim le white, and looked charmingly, while the latter was dressed in jjreat taste. The service was the deeply impressive one of the Episcopal church, and was conducted by Rev. Mr. Farley. Every tiling went off harmoniously, and the blooming bride and her husband left the church amidst the looks and good wishes ?>f all present. Happinets attend them. Assault and Battery.?Quito an exoiting case of assault and battery was tried yesterday at the petty session* in Brooklyn, Mr. Justice Garrison presiding, in which two of the most we&ltby and respectable citizens, Messrs. Johnson and Lamdier, with their two son?, figured. It appeared frotn the testimony, that both parties are builders, and own considerable real estatj in Columbia and Warren streets, and that a rivalship in business has existed between them for some Crs. In 1843, Mr. Johnson sold to the Atlantic k Company live lots ol land in Columbia st., one or two of which Mr. Lambier shortly afterwards purchased from the company, upon which he was preparing to erect houses. For that purnose he had a cons derable quantity of brick and lumber carted in the early part of the week, and paed up in lront oi ins lots, it seems mat auout u year since, Mr. Lambier, in a tit of spleen, erected a rail fence on soinn part of his property in Warren street, which completely shut out Mr. Johnson from a portion ?f his property in the same street?ami in order to square accounts and pay ott* the balance in Mr. Lambier's own coin, Mr. Johnson, on Thursday last, caused a board fence to be erected across Columbia street, in a line with Warren street, which as effectually shutout Mr. Lambier from all egress to his lots as he shut out Mr. Johnson from his. On the following morning, (Friday,) Mr. Lambier, with his son and three of liia workmen, came to Columbia street, and with force and arms, to wit, with saws, hatcheu, shovels, and piclc-Hxes, were tearing down the lence, when Mr. Johnson came up and interposed?abusiva language passed between them, upon which Lambier siezed his opponent by the collar and struck him in the face with his open hand ; they were then separated, and young Mr. Johnson having came up in the meantime, a general milit commenced ; the latter was struck on the shoulder by young Lambier, and was also struck bv the workmen, knocked down, tossed in the muu, and his clothes and face dirtied. The old gentleman was apain struck by Mr. Lambier's workmen?one o! them struck liiin on the leg with a saw, and aivither one struck him on some other } irt i t the body with a pick-axe. Mr. Staughton, a me iV'-r of the New York bar, appeared for s dc-' ice, and after congratulating old Mr. Johnson >11 his fortunate escape from two such deadly weapons as a saw and pick-axe, he contended that he was the first wrong-doer by obstructing a public highway, that any citizen had a right to abate the nuisance, and his client was only exercising thnt undoubted right; and if (as was the case here) he was attacked while doing so, he was justified in defending himself, which was all that he had done. This was the substance of the defence. From the position of the parties, the case seemed to create a good deal of interest, for the court-room was filled not only with their friends, but wifi a large concourse of the citizens of Brooklyn. The jury had not come in up to a late hour. x he hempstead elopement?arrest OF the Fair Fugitives and their Paramours.?A few days since, the good people of Hempstead Branch, Long Island, were terribly shocked by the intelligence thai a couple of married ladies of that town had abandoned their liege lords, and escaped to that great metropolis of sin and rascality?New York?where, after taking private lodgings for a little time, they departed to make a grand tour of the fashionable resorts. The first was a Mrs. Hannah Flowers, a very pretty woman, the wife of Benj. Flowers, whose gay Lothario was one Joseph Heustis. The other lady answered to the cognomen of Mrs. Mary Maria Jones, the frail partner of Andrew Jones, and her very kind friend to that of George Hudson. Both of the fair damsels have been married some years, bu; are childless. Well, as soon as all was arranged, they took their departure for the Wf st, probably intending to visit the falls first, and in due course of steam conveyances, they arrived in this city at 2 o'clock on Sunday morning. But as their evil star determined, there was to be " no rest lor the wicked." Just as the cars arrived at the depot, constable Wilkinson and Capt. Moore maee their appearance, having in charge an individual from Wyoming county, also accused of loving, "not wisely hut lr*r* wpII " nnH riinrunor nwnv with u mnn'n better half from Castile. After despatching this offender, their attention was called to the eastern runaways and their lovers, by some of the passengers, who had seen an account ot their elopement in the New York papers. After a little observation, nonstable Wilkinson walked tip to one of them and queried, " Is not your name Heustial" "It is." said the amorous one. "And yours," continued the officer, "is Hudson"!" "Y-e-s," answered the " fancy man," anticipating what was to follow. " Are your ladies with you 1" very politely asked the constable. " They are," was the response, and they were forthwith introduced to the gentlemen who had thus, as they thought, intruded unnecessarily upon their domestic arrangements. The erring couple were informed that they would be provided with apartment* for the night under other than their own directions, and they were therefore toted off to the Champion House. On being brought before Justice Wentworth yesterday morning, the companion of the blooming Mrs. Jones, who, by the way, is a school teacher and "professor of psalmody," said he 'was a little afraid all.the time tnat he would be caught, but he couldn't see how they got the news so soon, lor he had come just as fast as steam could carry him, and yet at almost the first landing place he was nabbed." Alter an examination, tneir.baggage, themselves and their lovely little partners in guilt, were given in charge of constable Wilkinson, who departed with them in the cars last evening for New York, to restore the lair sinners to their husbands, but who, we presume, if they have anything of human nature about them. " Would rather be a toad, And feed upon the vapors of a dungeon, Than keep a corner in the thing they love, For othera' u?ei."?Racheittr Jidvtrtittr. The Brooklyn Ad vert iter says that Mrs. Ileustis, the wife of one of the men who ran away with other men's wives from Hempstead Branch, last w?ek, died on Sunday afiernoon, of grief, as is supposed, for the husband's misconduct.

The con! tinued agitation ol thoie meaiurei, which have such an ' important influence upon commercial matter*, and the delay experienced in making any of the proposed changes, have a very injurious effect upon trade and commerce generally, and completely derange the calculation* and ar. rangements of every one. While this alteration, and i that alteration, are under coniideration, no one can I safely move in any matter likely to be in any way affected, and the consequence is, almost an universal suei pemion of *ome branches of bu*ines*.

The demand for foreign exchanges for this packet ha* ' been extremely limited, and the rates are steadily setI tlinw ^Aofn Our nltnlalinna nAW rula Inmar than mrm 1 "'"0 -1 .- ? ?? - j have known for leveral year*; and the probability ii, , that a lower point will yet be reached. Our exportation), particularly from thii port, continue very large for the ea'on, while the value of the importation! for the country generally has fallen off this year, so far at compared with last. The change in our foreign trade within the past three months has been *o great that the shipment* of specie have entirely ceased, not a dollar having been exported during the month of June. The rata* for foreign exchange rule very low at thia time, partly on account ' I of the tightnes* of the money market, which prevent* remittances to that extent an abundant supply of fund* would create. Domestic exchange* are very inactive?so much so, that our quotation* can hardly be considered otherwise than nominal. This i*, in a measure, earned by the derangement in the finance* of the government, and the artificial, or we might rather say the illegitimate drain of specie from several point* to meet want* at other point*, not connected in any way with the ramification* of trade. When a demand for money of this nature arise*, it invariably produce* a great deal of difficulty in the market, and in mercantile matter* generally. Congress is trying to do something for the better regulation of the Government finances, but they have been tinkering upon thi* lystem and that syitem so long, that it is pretty difficult to tell what will be the result of their effort*. They hare been about eight months actively engaged in perfecting some plau, and it i* our impreaiion that they are no nearer the result than at the end of the firit week of the se**ion. There are report* in circulation affecting unfavorably the value of the circulation of *everml banking inatitu tions which have been recently galvanized. Those named are the Georgia Lumber Company of Maine, the Salisbury Bank of Maryland, the Farmers' and Millers' Bank of Hagerstown, Maryland. These were all shinplaster concerns, and regenerated for the ostensible purpose ol improving and increasing the general circulation of the country, but actually for the purpose of swindling the public. There is no use in disguising the fact, or giving the thing aimoother, softer name. Theie concern! are galvanized lor no other purpose in the world but to swindle the public, and by so doing, filling the pockets of thoie directly engaged and inte retted in the operation. , | It is a disgrace to the| government of any Btate, that will allow luch banks to exiit within their limit*. It 1 ahould be, if it i? not already, the duty of those having the regulation of the bank* in their respective State*, to make the moit *earching investigation into the movement* and affair* of every galvanized bank a* frequently a* the law will permit, and from time to time make *uch report? at the circumitance* of the ca*e require. The system of forcing thi* specie* of bank paper upon tb? laboring claiae*, ha* been brought to *uch a state of perfection, that they cannot avoid taking it *o long a* theie i* the leaat life in the bank or bank* iituing it So long a* they can keep tlielr head* above water, their agenta con force their bill* through master workmen and bota mechanic*, upon those they employ.
