? - ~U. mmmmmmmmmgm NEW YORK HERALD.' \? w Vork, M'ednewltjr, July AX, 1D4A. Our Uluttvnird Weekly. The Weekly Herald of this week will be a very valuable publication. It will oontain all the late foreign news brought by the Cambria and Great Britam ; Mr. Bennett'* interesting letters from England ; the Congressional proceedings, &c. fecit w.U be embellished with a splenJid view of the steamship Great Britain in her new rig. Agents can send in their orders The Foreign *ew?. The Great Britain made a magnificent passage uver the Atlantic, and arrived off Sandy Hook at midnight on Monday, just as sleep 3tole over the eyesof old Neptune. The intelligence brought by the Monster is j highly interesting, and may be considered very favorable, particularly iu a commercial point of view, th-j price of cotton having jomewlur improved. The political news is. of an important character. Its impressive ; feature appears to be the rapid spread of j republican sentiments throughout Europe. Take up the leading papers of England, France, or the continent, and you cannot fail of seeing republicanism lurking under the forced expression of love lor monarchical institutions. All the governments of Europe, who are inactive, are losing catte, the spirit of the people demanding action?progress. This increased democratic sentiment may be -een in the articles taken from the English and French papers, and published in this day's Htruld. \ It ia called liberalism in Europe, which is a pretty enough name anywhere. Ostan Steam Navigation Commencement of a New Era, A circumstance took place yesterday, in this eity, which may be looked upon as the commence ment of a new era in the history of the United States. This circumstance was the laying of the ke?l of the first of the splendid ocean steamers lately authorised by act of Congress, and which will run between this port and Cowes and Bremen. The dimensions of this splendid vessel are gigantic, and are as follows :? Length of Real T20 feet " orer all 030 " Width of Beam 39 " Depth of Hold 34 " flinches ' " from the Poop Deck. 31 " Tonnage 1760 tons. Messrs. Westervelt & McKay, the well-known ship builders, have contracted to furnish the hulls of these vessels, and to build them in the strongest and most substantial manner, and will introduce all the improvements that the experience of the past few years has brought to light. Her oabin and second cabin will be fitted up in the most magnificent, and, at the same time, staunch manner, with ample room for two hundred first alas* and one hundred second class passengers, and will resemble more the drawing room of a splendid hotel at one of our fashionable water- | ing places, than the interior of a ship. The engines and machinery will be constructed by Messrs. Stillman, Alien & Co., of the Novelty Works, on an improved principle. The following will be the dimensions of the engine and machinery Power of Engins 1000 hones. Cylinder 72 inches. Stroke 10 feet. When all shall have been completed, and the noble vessel ready for sea, she will be placed under the command of Captain Hewitt, the pre* I ?*nt master of the splendid Havre packet ship Utica. Fears were entertained some time augo, by some of our short sighted citizens, that the enterprise would not turn out productive. We understand that this company, and all our principal merchants and sailing masters, are confident that it will yield the most profitable returns. The following is an estimate of the probable income and expenditures of the Ocean Steam Navigation Company, foe one year, with their four vessels :? INCOME. Twenty-four trips from New Vork to Cowm end Bremen. '2A0 ton* freight par trip, $0000 tons per annum. at $ 10 per ton $00,000 Twenty.fntir trips from Europe to New York, 360 tons freight per trip, 8000 per ann at $36 ISO,000 Twenty four trips from New Vork, to average 70 pasiengera. lstclass, I (WO per ann at $136 300,000 60 do 2d class, 1300 " at $60.

Wo think it would be nearer the fact to put down 260 as the regular number of passengers, and deduct at least one half of the sum put down for contingencies. It will be perceived, then, that the first Amerioan steamship company will commence business under the most favarable auspices, and we hope the day is not distant when we can congratulate the country on possessing as numerous a fleet oi steamships as any other nation in the world. Latxr prom Havana.?By the schooner Hnrrnonicn, Capt. Malcolm, we have received our Spanish file* to the 9th inst. inclusive. Nothing of peculiar interest haa occurred since our last d vio?s.

In soma part* oftha Island, especially at Villa Clara, the enure crops ware injured or totally destroyed by the long continued drought. The heat was intense. The newspaper controversies as to accuracy in American newi, were still raging vielently. Mr. PaulUn was delighting the inhabitants of the Island with his balloon asoenrions, in which he had been very suooeseful. The English steamsr Clyde srrived the 7th inst., bringing news from Vera Cruz to the 38d ult., which will be found in another column Naval ?The U. 8. brig Truxton, Commander Dcrpentrr, sailed from Havana, on the ftth inat., on a ci-uim* around the Island.

We arrived in Liverpool on Sunday la?t, about 1 o'clock in the afternoon, after a brief and pleasant voyage of 12 days in the liibemia, Capt. Kyrie We have seldom spent so pleasant a time, and much was contributed by the courtesy and attentions of the captain. Great and unfeigned pleasure was felt at Liverpool on receiving the intelligence of the settlement o! tlie Uregon question. There hail indeed been n previous expectation in England that such intelligence would be received, and the positive fact made all the commercial circles glad. We were met with equally important new* to ' that which we carried. On the Friday previous, Sir Robert Heel had carried the Corn Bill, but was defeated on the Irish Coercion Bill?the latter causing a resignation of las administration, and the entrance of Lord John Russell and the Whig* into power. Every thing is in a state of political confusion and transition in England; and the settlement of the Oregon question has, in consequence, not caused the general sensation which otherwise it would have done. During the whole of last week the ministerial cri*is here ha^ occupied all tongues and all pens. Lord John Russell has formed a ministry of whig elements, but the passage of the Corn Bill ha* given the most prodigious (dat to the Manchester League, and particularly to the celebrated Richard Cobden, the head of the concern. A new and powerful element has been disovered in the system of political agitation in England. In 1838, the Manchester men began their agitation for the repeal of the corn laws. For eight years they proceeded in their movements, and have at last succeeded. I wa? in this country in that year, 18S8, and remarked in my correspondence at the time, that the real popular metropolis of England was Manchester and the surrounding towns?not London, which was the mere feudal metropolis, held in obedience by'lhe expenditures of the aristocracy, or corn lords, during the fashionable season. The abolition of the corn laws, demonstrates the signal success of the Manchester men, and is only the first great, broad, curious, surprising fact in a series of changcs which will take place, in the same way, in the future history of England. It is not believed that the Russell ministry will ) last long. A year, or tw? years, would be a very old age to allot to it. In the Houso of Commons, there are three large parties, and one well dressed cltque,?1st, the Whigs ;2d, the Conservatives ; 3d, , the Liberals; 4th, the Young England men. No ministry can have a long lease in the midst of such | varied and confused materials. Out of doors there are only two great and radical parties?the aristocracy, comprehending both whigs and tories?and the popular or modern influences and classes, who will hereafter be gui 'ted and directed by such organizations as that of the League. That remarkable association has been dissolved in Manchester ; but the spirit in which iteriginated has received a development that, under another name and other leaders, will yet shake England from centre to circumference on some other ancient laws or privileges. I should not be surprised to see the privileges and monopolies of the church the next point of attack. Lord John's administration may affect to be a movement ministry, but it will take care to do nothing, to stand still, and to lay the foundation for some other leagne association, that may start up in London or in the manufacturing districts. This is now the system of revolution in i this country. It has been proved and tried in the , O'Connell agitation in Ireland, and now in anti com law agitation in England. In the meantime, there will be a short season of calm, a period ot considerable commercial prosperity, and a fresh development of the resources of this country in industry of all kinds? manufactures, trade, railroads, Ac. Arc. There is a vast and a wonderful revolution going on in this country?a revolution in government, in religion,! in everything that constitutes civilization. I shall have much to soy on this subject as I proceed. 0n the Oregon question everything is satisfactory. On Monday last Sir Robert Peel, in the Commons, and Lord Aberdeen, in -lie Lords, announced its preliminary settlement, and with expressions of great satisfaction. The United Stales stand higher now, in the general estimation of this country and of Europe, than ever she did before ; and were it not for the unfortunate State i debts, which continue to ca?t a slur over our reputation, we should be the envied of all nations, in European opinion. The Mexican war, thus far, under the management of Gen. Taylor, has only added to the general opinion in our favor. Mr. McLane's conduc here, during the ticklish negotiations on the Oregon boundary, has also been highly valued. This question might have I been settled last winter, on probably better terms > than those accepted, but for the violent debates in Congress; for the English government would ! not move in the matter while those debates were going on so furiously in Washington. But all now is happily settled, and a great increase in the commercial intercourse of the two countries may now be expected. As to the Mexican war, no one here expects that it can last long. The attempt made on 'Change, to negotiate a loan here by that government, has failed most ludicrously. I ant informed that the agents of Paredes had succeeded in getting a loan, on one condition, and that was dependent on their obtaining a victory over the American army on the Ria Grande. The agents and the contractors were only waiting for that ( victory, to close the lists and clutah the money. | Unfortunately, "Old Rough and Ready" thrashed the Mexicans?disorganized their army?drove them into the interior; and, as soon as the news was received here, the Mexican negotiations were ail blown sky high. It is high fashion in London at this moment. The Queen returned yesterday from the Isle of Wight, to superintend tha new ministerial ar rangements, and, probably, to close the fashionable season in a wctk or two. Every one will then be off for the country, or the continent; and among which we shall be one party. We shall, probably, visit the Rhina and Baden Baden, in the first place. The nobility and people at fashion are giving parties, balls, dinners, and fttu all the time. The west end of London, and the Parks, present nothing but a succession of fertivities. We are invited by a distinguished family , to dine in the country to-morrow, and to spend the Sunday at their delightful residenoe several miles out of town. There ia a vast concentration of theatrical and musical talent here, at present?Grisi, Onto, Si- I von, Charlotta Cushman, and 1 don't know how j many others. We vinted the Itnlinn Opera last | night. It was quite fashionable?but the Queen has not yet been seen there since her aeermchtnunt. It was crowded with beauty and brilliancy. Grisi ia fatter than ever, but she sings with the same power and beauty as in her younger days. Madame Castellan also sung with great power and beauty, hut her figure and face are very pttitt for that vast theatre?she was applauded?but Grisi had the most. Of the Jatuwn we ??ur r .. cille Graham and the beautiful Canto?but what a contrast' Lucille Graham it a splendid dancer in the style of Taglioni, but the looks like a ghost, from the church yard, just let out for ono night by death, to daace a pot, and be back to her grave before oook crowing. I never saw such a long, lank, pale, fleshless, unearthly looking being. 8he would hare done for " Cuttie Sark," in Burns' Allowny Kirk, and would have caught his mare, Mrg, beyond a doubt. Of Carito, it is difficult to speak without launching forth mtr^rapture*. j Itl is fnow three years] since we saw bar la*t, and.sbe has improved in beauty, ...... in grace, in art, in Anish, so that she is new at the head of all the Uantetutt oflEurope. Her figure is somewhat fxtit, but exquisitely faultleM. Her style of art is of the Taglioni school?the very reverse of the Elssler. She was received with rapturous applause, although the newspaper critics did not mention her at all in the papers of this morning. 1 have yet to see Charlotte Cushman, and the remaining celebrities. Charlotte is male ing a rapid fortune in this country. She is appreciated. What a stigma upon her own land ! London, 6th July, 1846. We are still iu London, and will probably remain here for several days. The fashionable season is drawing to its close, and, in a fortnight, the west end will be a desert, and the gay parks empty. Yesterday we returned from a delightful visit to a beautiful seat in the country, where we dined in company with Prince Louis Napoleon, who recently made his extraordinary escape from the fortress of Ham. He is i fine young man?very intelligent?speaks English fluently, and was full ot inquiries of those who formerly extended kindness to him when he was in the United States a few years ago. He made special enquiries of Colonel Webb, who entertained him once at his country place on Long Island. The Prince talks of going to South America; but from his long confinement his spirits are low and dejected. Fresh air and liberty may improve him soon. There is no news here since I wrote by the last steamer. We are just in the beginning of a new ministry, and nothing of interest will transpire till Lord John Russell gives hisprogramme of government in the House of Commons. The war between the United States and Mexico does not make much sensation here. It is generally believed and expressed, that Mexico was foolish to provoke so powerful and military a republic as the United States. In other respects, I have no doubt the English people would like, rather than otherwise, that Mexico was under the J ! * .TaL. TT *a_J O * dominion 01 me u nueu oirues. Great numbers of Amerioan travellers have come over this summer,'and many are bound for the German spas and other watering places. Arrival or the Steamship Great Britain.? The remarkably short passages which this noble vessel has made 011 her two last trips, form the subject of conversation among all classes of the community, and particularly among commercial and scientific men. It will be recolleciad that her last trip to England was made in a little over thirteen days, and that she arrived in the harbor yesterday, from Liverpool, in thirteen days and eight hours, running time. If the time occupied in stoppages be deducted from this, the length of the passage will be reduced to twelve days and eleven hours, which is the shortest passage to New York, on record.? Before this last performance of the Great Britain, the Great Western had made the passage in twelve days and eighteen hours?hut the Great Britain made it shn.ter.

The above table commences on the 9th of July, but she left Liverpool on the 7th, and made the first distance mentioned in the tabie, four hundred and thirty-five miles, to the 9th, inclusive. The honor of having made the passage from the Old World to New York, in the shortest time, therefore belongs to the mammoth steamship Great Britain, and her noble Captain Hosken. We should think that these results would convince the most sceptical of the success of the submerged propeller. The Great Britain now stands deservedly high in the estimation of the public; and another voyage like the last would place her in the position heretofore occupied by the Great Western.

She brought advices to the 23d ult., inelusive, with the following important items. An American brig had been reported as blockading the port of Alvarado.. Her boats had, in pursuing a loaded vessel into the port, come in encounter with tome armed boats of the Mexicans, and according to the Mexican accounts, hud been driven off; but it seems that they were recalled by signals from the brig. The latter sailed the next > day. The iaiiabitanta of Alvarado had turned , outm ma sue, and subscriptions to the amount of j ! 83000 had been made for the erection of fortifica- i tions. One brigade of the army of reserve had march- i od to the aid of the army of the North, showing that the outbreaks in Jalisco would be suppressed previous to any movement against the army of Gen. Taylor. The remaining l>ody of resorve would remain in the capital tiU the arrival ot lien. Bravo, to that the forces previously announced I as having collected at Monterey, have been very I much overrated. From the Castle of Perote, a large number of mounted guns, and ammunition, hid been sent to the defence of the city of Mexico. The steamer Clyde, sailing from Tampico subsequent to the bombard nent, announced an active cannonading going on between the Mexican gun boats Queretana and Poblana, and the American brig St. Mary's. The English steam frigate Vesuvius had sailed I from Tampico for Vera Cruz, in consequence of 1 the refusal of the captain of the St. Mary's to per| mit bullion to be taken on board the Clyde? j much trouble was expected to accrue from this ! refusal. Tta? following statement was received by express at Vera Cruz on the 30th nit.: "The Cali| fornias have separated from Mexice. General j Taylor has occupied the country at the right of | the Rio Bravo, and had advanced towards Saltil] lo. The town of Altamira, distant a day's journey from Tampico, was in tile hands oI the Amej ficans." After the bombardment of Tampidb by the St. | Mary's,which seemed to have done no injury, the i i Commandant of the department of Tamaulipas j i had called to arms all the citizens of the province.

The ] orders at Vera Cruz were for the garrison to be I on the alert, especially at night, to guard against , surprise. General Paredes had received formal permission from the grand junta to lead the troops i to the Ncrth, and on the 19th accompanied Gen. j Arevalo. Arista was on his way to the capital, and Ampudia at St. Luis Potosi. General Rodriguez de Cella haa taken the place of Bravo in the government of the department at Vera Cruz. Intelligence from Mexico, tU England. The London Timet of the 6th inst., gives the 1 following intelligence from Mexico, which ia of considerable interest, although our advices direct are very mncb later. t?| The English have the means of obtaining information from that republic, that Americans have not. Annexed is the intelligence. On the morning of the 30th of May, at daylight, a cor- . ' vetto wu neen at anchor about two miles beyond the shipping lying off the bar of Tampico, but without a flair to distinguish her nation. 8hortly afterward* an officer, fully armed, came on board the mail packet Tay, and tated that he waa ?ent by Commander Saunders, of the j United State* corvette St. Mary's, to declare that port in ! a state of blorkado ; and having obtained information as to the different nationi to whicn the several vessels belonged, and of which there were at tha tine the unusual , number of ten at the bar, he took his leave, and visited | them all in aucceaaion. Communications were then sent ' to the different consula residing at Tampico. informing them of the blockade, and that 1& days (until the ftth of June) would be allowed to the veaaels now in pert to dispose of their cargoea, or ship thoae already in transit. Upon raceiringthe official notification, the consuls went in a body to wait upon the commander of the corvette, (the English consul excepted, who was detained by sicknesa.) to aolicit a prolongation of the time specified previous to commencing a rigid blockade, but their request could not be acredea to The French consul remarked to the American commander, " that whan thoy block aded these port* they were more liberal to the Engliah, u they 'permitted both the silver to embark and the quickiilrer to ditembark." " TYue." vat the reply, " but wt know the influence that England hat over thit country, and we an in hopei that thit prohibition may be a meant of injuring her to utt htr endeavort to jpertuade thete people to hear reason " The mail packet Tav hai every reaaon to apeak highly of the politeneaa and civility experienced from the commander of the American corvette, eapecially in trusting to the hoaor of Capt. Sharp, the commandor, to embark and diaemhark whatever waa not prohibited by the blockading inatructions. In reply to a communication from the Admiialty agent, tne commander of tho corvette informed him that no opposition would be experienced on the part of the British Government in landing and receiving the mails during the existing state of affairs, and so long as the packets abstained from all commercial transactions, all passengers (military of the Mexican Government excepted) would be permitted to embark and disembark as usual. The Mexican* arc, and have been for some time, employed in placing the town and mouth of the river in a better state of defence. On an eminence which commands the north east side of the town, and the approach to it by the river, they have replaoed a dilapidated mud battery by a good substantial atone built fort, in which i the guns are mounted and the Mexican flag ia flying. There is also a circular brick seat at the lower end of the town, which terminates the evening promenade ; this has been converted into a battery a fteur d'eau, to guard tho approach by the river, in which they have placed three long guns of about twelve English pounds j calibre, raising the parapet with bags of earth, and surrounding the whole by a fesae. The bar is defended by three small schooners, carrying one long gun each, and placed across the entrance of the river; on shore, on the left hand side, arc the remains of a battery, with a sandy foundation, part of which has lately been swept = "?/ -J, .uu B'-'O ??

Mont of the troops have been drawn off to increase the army, and General Paredei, the commandant of Tampico. cannot at present command more than sufficient men in the town to relieve the different guards. The Mexican regiment named Tampico, is noted for behaving well upon all occasions, and particularly distinguishea itself in the late affair of Matamoras; many of the men are reported to have returned to their foyer$, having quitted General , Arista and the retreating army. The bar of Taflpco has for some time pa?t become almost impassable, excepting for vessels in ballast, having but a few feet o( i water in the channel; in consequence, a sloop belong- i ing to Mr. Jolly, the agent to the Mail Company, took I the ground with 600 flasks of quicksilver on board ; but 1 all was saved excepting one flask, which fell overboard i by accident, and was instantly buried in the saad. The blockade of Verm Cruz commenced the same day i (May 20) with that of Tampico. i The American squadron, when united, will, it is said, ; consist of two sail of the line, one from Boston, the other i from New York, three frigates, including the one al- . ; ready here, and the other two are at Pensacola, with the - i commodore, and of the largest size; two first class steam ) ships, the Mississippi and Princeton; one or two corvettes, some brigs and smaller steam-vessels to tow the I ships into position. The inhabitants are apprehensive of i an attack upon Kort San Juan de Ulloa and the town; in i consequence, most of the families are removing to the i interior. On the 29th of May, 600 men of the line arrived from Jala pa, and the day following about 300 Dragoons accompanied the specie from Mexico, making a total , . amount of troops in the town and fort of San Juan de Ul- | l loa of about 2,200 men, but I am sorry to add that the j military hospitals are full, and I am afraid to mention the .

On Bunday afternoon, the aacrmment of the Lord'* Hurnier wmi administered to him by the Rev. Dr. Cro?well, in the presence of the parent! and family of the prWoner. The final interview between the latter, under the trying circumitancei, wa* a moat affecting one to the beholden. During the night and morning, previoui to hit execution, the pritoner appeared to be in a prepared tite of mind, and displayed bit uaual equanimity. At 11 o'clock, on Monday morning, the military, comprising the Guard*, the Oreys, und Blues, were muttered, and performed sentinel duty throughout the proceeding!. At naif past 1 o'clock, the Kcv Messrs. Bacon and Mervin offered prayers in the cell with the prisoner. The Sheriff with his two assistants, came for the unhappy man at 4 o'clock, and conducted him to the gallowa. There was large crowd assembled around the enclosure of the jail, but] (peace and order were preserved. But a small number were admitted as witnesses within the enclosure, which was formed by stretching canrass along the front of the jail yard from the county house, to the tront corner of the law building, and another across the vardfrom the county house to the rear c jrner ot the law building , the canvass on each side reaching to the height1! of V feet. At 3 o'clock, the prisoner came out He was dresssed in a white gown girdled about the waist, and had a white oap o? his head with the lower part doubled up. sa as to leave his face and forehead I ee. He looked deHcats and rather pale, but walked to 'he foot of the ladder and ascended with a perfectly firm 'read, and al'.aough held by the arm on one side, without any assistance from those ready to support him. When on th? scaffold, he turned to the spectators, and, after a shovt pause, commenced in a clear, firm and deliberate tone of Voice, a short address to thoae around. A hurried sketch of his speeeh it as follows : ADDRESS. "My fellow men, you are assembled here under very trving circumstances?you are assembled to witness a fellow mortal sent into eternity. You all know, probablv what brought me to this; it is all familiar to your minds. You all know the first step taken in the path that has led me here. When the first step is taken in the paths of sin it is very difficult to stop." Hero be seemed faint and sat down for a moment, but very soon rose again and proceeded. "1 have felt it my duty to warn all young men, before 1 left the world. There are so many temptations around them. On every oorner of this city, wherever you turn, are those places for leading you astray; and it it in consequence of them that tnia groat affliotion hat boon brought upon mo.

The blood of Christ atonoa for all, and I entreat you all to attend to that subject." Here he sat down, and remained sitting with kit handkerchief to his face, leaning forward and retting on hit hand, and listened to the prayer Upon the scaffold, the Rev. Mr. Oleaveland, standing by his tide, again invoked the clemency of the Deity for the criminal, and pleaded the Savior'* blood in extenuation of hit guilt and for hit forgivenett. Immediately afterwards they commenced to tie his arms behind him, bv the elbowt, leaving hit hands somewhat free. While thia wat being done, at he had done when he had ascended the tcaffold. he looked calmly up at the rope that dangled above hit head, and around upon the arrangement! for hit death, with the roost perfect caimnesi. There waa not the ilightett trembling during the whole ; no flinching of the eye or tremor of the voice, though he tpoke with great feeling. The helter wat then placed around hit neck and the knot adjusted with great care by Deputy Sheriff C'arr.
