NEW YORK HERALD. > n Vmk, Krtiluy. Au?uat 7, IH4?i. m? V\cekJy Herald. The li'trkly Herald will bo ready, as usual, to-morrow mormi>g ?t ? o'clock It will contain a general summary of newt from all paru of the worid, including that received by the steam hi|> Hibernia; two very interesting letters from Mr. Bennett) a graphic account of the closing scenes in (. on grass; the President's Veto of the River and Harbor Bill. Sec , he. Price six cents, in wrappers for tha mails Mission to JHcilco~Arc we to have I'race / It wits mentioned in our telegraphic report yea terilay, and we see it stated in several papers here and elsewhere, that tlie President has sent a special message to the Senate, relative to sending the Hon. John Slidellas a sort of peace commissioner to Mexico. This is mere rumor, however. We have taken some pains to ascertain the loundation oil which this ruinoris based. We are inclined to believe that the administration have 110 such in;ention in view. If any movement is made it must and does come from the Mexican government. It is not unlikely, however, that Mr.Pakenham, the English Minister, has had one or two inter- 1 views with Mr. Buchanan, and that he has now offered the mediation of his government for the settlement of the difficulties between this country and Mexico. The rumor may have grown out of this supposition. The U. S. government did all 111 its power to Hvert the piesent war, and in its greatness condescended to send a special minister, with authority to settle all matters in dispute.? That minister was declined a bearing, and was obliged to leave without accomplishing the object of his mission. By an act on the part ofMexico war ensued, and in the very commencement ' of it, she received a lesson which ought to have led to a proposition for peace. The lesson, however, has been thrown away, and it now becomes this country to administer another aud more exemplary one, and to follow it up until the despots who rule that unfortunate people have no reason 1 to deny our power, and sue for peace on the broad rules of necessity. We have endured too much already, and experience proves that chivalrous j dealing and generosity is lost on that imbecile race. The war must be prosecuted to the capi- i lal and a peace conquered We believe this is the view held by our government, and we really hope that no mediation will be even thought of, until Mexice has thrown her- | self wholly on our generosity. We have already ! been too much humbugged by the treacherous I leaders of that ill-fated republic. If Mexico has offered to settle the difficulties on I the basis of the cession to this country of California, us our telegraphic report of this morning states, she has acted wisely, and we hope that it ; will prove true It is said that the mission of j Captain SI dell Mackenzie, of the Navy, to Havana, and his recent mysterious visit to General Taylor at Matamoras, has had something to do with the proposition ; but if any proposition has been made, we trust that it has coin* from the Mexican government. But ail is yet in doubt. THE ITVI i mi Sru cti H ffvcvuc si'Dwinii ?A aliArt I time ago, we published an article in this journal, J mentioning ttie s-rvices performed by the. officers and men i'iuii, <1 in the revenue service of the Unit d sui e?, i>) b ??id >ug and relieving ?h ps and vessels in (b?tic .mil also spoke of the efficient aid tli.?t Hi - - rv .iv: is capable of rendering,in the event of there beugauy necessity lor the general government o employ them as vessels ol war. At the time wo wrote that article, we were aware of the immense benefits that they have conferred on our commercial marine; but we have since discovered tnat the estimate we formed is far short of the ui irk, We in idvertently, too, made 1 a mistake 111 that article, which in justice to a gallant officer, should be corrected. We mentioned in a favorable way the servicei of the revenue schooner Jackson, and bestowed , some prnise orv Lieutenant Cornell, her commander, as we thought. It cannot be doubted that Lieutenant Cornell performed his duties faithfully as executive officer on board of that vessel; but the captain's name is John A. Web- ; ster, senior captain in the service, to whom two j swords were voted during the last war with Great Britain, and who is now in command of all the revenue vessels concentrated betwefcn the Rio Grande and the Mississippi. We make this correction, not for the purpose of disparaging the services of Lieutenant Cornell, for whom we entertain the highest respect; but merely with the view of correcting an unintentional unjustice we have done to Capt. Webster. Lieut. C.'s services lose none of their value by this. A friend has kindly furnished us with the offi- ( cial report of vessels boarded, spoken, and supplied by the United States revenue cutters, from December I, IS45, to April 1, 1846, from which i , we learn the full particulars of the lo^ of each vessel?the amount of duty performed, and the distance sailed by each.

The schooner Wolcott was dismasted early in the season, and the Woodbury is cooperating with the army. This will account for those vessels not rendering as mucli service as the others. The above othcial account of revenue service is well calculated to create much surprise; for few persons, we believe, are well acquainted with thia noble branch ol our national marine; and his- ( tory shows that, as vessels of war, our revenue euttera are not to be despised as enemies. The following extracts from Xiltt' Rtgisitr, show that when called upon in that way, the officers of the revenue service have not failed to ' render a good account of themselves, in the use of the force employed on board.

I am air, with greai leapect, V'our obedient aervant, JOHN CRENE To Capt. 9 Tkatii, IT. S. Cutter Surveyor. For the purpose of showing how these service! were estimated by the Congress of the United States, we clip the following from the fourth volume oi Unittd States Laws, page 6tJ0. The United States relinquish to Capt. Cahoone, officer* and crew their portion of the proceed* of the Britiih priva eer Dart, captured by the Revenue schooner Vigilant. A ad again Vol, b, page 510.?The United States relinquish to Capt. Augus. 0. Kraier, officer* and craw, their portion of the pioceeds of the British ihip Ardent, And again Vol ft, page 119?British privateer Dart, ?J nine pound cannonade#, captured by the United Statai Revenue schooner Vigilant, ' apt John I'ahoone, and carried into Newport, wit' which place ihe had committed many depredations. This is conclusive evidence that in time of war our revenue cutters have performed some glorious actions, and helped to win the laurels that belong to our little navy. We are extremely glad of having the opportunity of letting the world see what services our revenue navy have performed; and we have no doubt that if their services were again needed, they would gallantly uphold the honor of their flag,and be a sore annoyance to the enemy. Servants' Pebquisi tes?Another European Custom to be guarded against.?It is becoming quite fashionable in our hotels, steamboats and stages, to tip the waiter who waits upon you, or the driver who drives you, a wink, with a small sum of money, generally ranging from half a dollar to a fi'penny bit. This is done by bloods, who wish to show the slight value w hich they set upon their money or themselves, and by pretenders who wish to pass for bloods. It is never donn from motives of charity, kindness, or gratitude, but is, at best, a piece ef the purest folly. We never see a gay swell stretch forth his hand in this species of bestowal, without wishing that he may sometimes himself stand in need of that quarter, to strengthen his ribs with a dinner. The direct result of this illjudged liberality is to expose all travellers and residents of hotels, to the necessity of paying an unjust and grievouqpx, or of being starved or otherwise neglected. As soon as "John " finds that you are not going to pay anything he *huns you as he would a wild beast, and not unfrequently insults you. You have to help yourself?if the means happen io be within your reach- -and if not you must "go without"? your coffee is cold?your beefsteak bumed, and your eggs hard-boiled. Nothing you can lay your hands upon is fit to eat?while your next neighbor is gorging himself on all the delicious "tit-bits" of the table. It is no use complaining; you may be told that if you do not consider yourself wel' enough waited upon, you can go about your business, or perhaps you may be told to "go to the devil!" or not unfrequently you run a sharp rick of being kicked out of doors. Now all this vexatious imposition has been brought about, by the sham generosity of parvenue puppyism. In England the thing has reached its maximum, and a strange maximum it is. There you might as well think of leaving a hotel without paying your biil, as to depart with out let-iug tli? servan's Waiter must have his perquisite?so must chamber maid?so must bar maul?so must "boots"?errand boy, hostler ai;d groom, all expect to be feed, and if you do iict "come down" handsomely, they will set to work before a crowd of gaping idlers, ai.d ?buse you like a pickpocket. This is one of the much talked of pleasures of an English hotel. The sum thus mulcted from you is exceeding'y large, often amounting to pounds and guineas ; but the most amusing part, (if any part can be called amusing,) of this ridiculous swindle, ia, that in some hotels, they put the servants' perquisites in the bill, and not only that, but take credit to diemselves for so doing, lor they set forward in their advertisements, as a great inducement for your patronage, that "Servants' fees will be charged in the bill." God forbid ! that we should live to see a notice of this kind in the advertisement of an American Hotel, and we do not suppose we shall. Still, though not so bad as this, we have been frequently annoyed with the lesser evil of having to pay the quarters, or be satisfied with very poor quarters indeed. The New York Post Office again.?If the post office in New York be not conducted better than it is, we think the public will demand that it be abolished. It has never been so much mismanaged within the recollection of the oldert inhabitant, as it has been since, unfortunately, Cave Johnson came into office. We now insert a couple more mmnlaintfl uKnnf fVin nnn.ranantinn nftUa which we selected from a batch that we got within j & few day9. They are from the same place :? I Bratti.eboro, Vt, July 31, 1846. 1 am torry again to be obliged to complain of the frequent failure of your paper* at our poit office. Sometime* they do not ?omo for two or three days, and at other* a file o fold one* ia reeeived. This i* not generally the caie with other New York paper*. They ure alway* received on the evening of the *ame day on which they are published. The short coming* of your paper, however, i* a nint'er of univerial complaint here, and unlei* something i* done to remedy it, we shall be obliged to discontinue the Herald, which, could it come with regularity, would have quite an increase of subicribera in thia neighborhood. Brattleboro, Vt, August 4, 1840 I have only got one paper since I came here. The poit office in New York is a rascally affair, and Morris is not fit for the office. Of all the papers taken at this place, the only New York paper of Monday received thia day, was the Journal of Comment, all the others failed; but a* the Journal i* a leco paper, it will be *ent forward and the other* kept back. Send the Herald as I asked, and drop me a line. We now call on President Polk to give us some relief. Let us have some one who will have time to attend to his bu siness, for it appears that Mr. Morris cannot attend to it; for with his duties as delegate to the convention, and fishing lor popularity in order to be elected Governor, his whole time is taken up. Skriou8 Railroad Accident.?An accident occurred on the N. Jersey Railroad Wednesday nigfct about ten o'clock, which will probably result in the death of one or more of the passengers. A number of Kechabites from Newark and Railway, proceeded on an excursion to New Brunswick, and on their return, a miscreant among them drew out the bolt that connected the locomotive and the cars. When it was discovered the engine was considerably ahead of the cars, anil the passengers crowded to the platforms and called on the engineer to hold on. The conductor jumped from the cars, and seeing what the matter was, directed the engineer to go ahead as last as he could or the locomotive would be dashed to pieces by the cars, as the grade of the road in that place was on a (b'clivitv ol iw^ntv.?i*vf>n fi*pt to tli?? mile. The engineer did as directed, but I the car* nevertheless thundered 011 and overtook tlie locomotive. A tremunilou" crash wns the con sequenc which broke tin* platforms of tw? of tin- c ir< into splinters, ntui seriously injur, d lour j pas-engers One man named Waul had b-ith bis ; lrg* broken and th.ee others were al-o serious)}' i injured, "u punishment is too gr. i\i for the miscreant who cau?ed this 1'imentnbie ncc dent.

It i* a decided hit, both for the manager and the ' talented author, Mr. Walcott, and cannot fail to fill the | treasury of both. The intereat of the piece increases ' with each night's peiformance, and would draw large j houiei for a long time if it were allowed to be kept on the itage. Thu, however, cannot be, as the enterprising Mr. Jacksen, who has acquired additional popularity ince it* production, hat another new drama of intense in- ; terest in rehearsal, and which will soon be brought forward. These ? ho have not yet seen Hoboken, had bet- : ter do so while they can, before it is withdrawn to make i room for the new drama. It will be repeated thia evening. with the pantomime of " Don Juan, or the Libertine I Destroyed. j UHtciiwisH Theatre.?Mr. Henkin's benefit last | evening drew together a Louse hardly equalled by any this season. Mr. Freer in the affecting drama of "Michael the Ferryman" was very successful; and we were particularly pleated with the acting of Miss Julia Drake, who is improving rapidly in her profession. Miss Homer | danced a pas seul last evening, which for grace and ar tistical perfection we have rarely seen surpassed. This ( evening i( the last night but one of the engagement of ' Mr. Wood and hi* ion ; they appear in two attractive melo-dramas, one entitled the "Planter and hi* Dog and the other the well known " Philip Quarl and bis Monkey." Mr. Kreer and Mi** Drake both will sustain j prominent characters in the drama of the " Maid of MiIan"?the graceful Mi** Homer too, will not be wanting. It i* seldom such an opportunity for pasting an agreeable evening u ottered in our oity, and we know that the liberality of the manager will be appreciated and rewarded by an overflowing house. 8tranger* should not I leave New York without paying a visit to thi* delighti ful place of amuiement. Cum OiaDin.?The liberal proprietor* of this esi tabliihment are, we are glad to *ee, reaping a golden harveit from the *eed of their enterpriie. Thoae who can- , not ipare time to vi*it the country, and yet deaire pure air, throng nightly, the gay laloon* and liiten to the mu- j l tic of the neat orchestra in the United SUte* on the bal- ' I conies of this beautiful place. The refreshment* handed about by numerou* and attentive waiter*, are of the most exquiaite quality ; the muiic ia unequalled by any i orcheitra in the Union; the coimoramas are extensive and brilliantly gorgeous, and the tout tntemhlt is an attraction which lor chaatenes* and novelty deierve the patronage of our citizen*. Thia evening the muiic will com- j prite the choiceit gem* of Italian aad German opera*. I Conckbt.?Mr. Philip Ern*t, flutist to the lale court o^ i France, and Mr. H A. Wollenhaupt, pianist from the i Conservatoire of Leipzijg. will give an inatrumental concert at Blancard'* Pavillion, New Brighton, Staten Island, to-morrow. These distinguished performers will be aa iited by Mr. Philip Meyer, the celebrated singer, and also by Mr. Ahrenc, who will preside at the piano. We i think the mere mention of thi* concert i* enough to draw i a full asiemblage, but when it it known that [Mr. Ernat will perform on the celebrated Bcshm flute, we auppo*e the hou?e will be crowded. Welsh and Mann were lately refuacAMrmiuion to exhibit their Circu* at Worcester, (althoHk they offered to apply $100 for the benefit of the Nantucket sufferer*,) by tne select-men of the town, on the grounds that the I ' eneci was immoral, rrevious periormers nave aiway? i obtained a License. We consider the conduct of the au- 1 thoritiei vary foolish and bigotted The select-men of the f mail villages in Massachusetts are the funniest set of mo- < ral philosophers we ever romember to have seen. They i i would probably object to a military display of West i Point Cadets, because the horses would unfortunately f ! be paraued in bare legs. 1 Herr Alexander left yesterday for Newport; from J | thence he proceeds to Saratoga. ' ' Mr. De Meyer was to give his firat concert in Montraal, .

Cttjr Intelligence. ! | shir Buildino ii* New York?launch op the Ba- 1 j varia?more Packets?As previously announced, this j ! new packet ship wu launched yesterday morning at 9 , | o'clock, from the yard of Mr. W. H. Webb, in presence 1 of an immense concourse of people. She ia a noble ship, j I strongly, neatly, and carefully put together; and is sup. , ! plied with every requisite for good sailing and comfort, ! that experience and taste could suggest. Her burden is 1 ; one thousand tons. She ia loO feet long, 87 feet breadth of beam, and 31 feet hold The accommodations for pas- ! i sengers, of course, will be in keeping with the age, and i j with the other departments of the ship. The B. has been j - constructed expressly for Mr. Wm. Whitlock's "Union I Line" of Havre packets, and will be commanded by Capt. 1 | Geo W. Howe, the late able and gentlemanly commander of the Emerald On the same stock*, in the same yard, is a magnificent vessel for Messrs. Fox li Livingston's ' ' line of Havre packets. She is nearly all planked, and ' \ will he finishes in a few weeks. She is about the same j 1 model and dimensions a* the Bavaria, and is to be com manded by ('apt Wotten, of the Francois I, and is de- ! signed to take the place of that vessel in the line. The ! keel of another large ship is to he laid immediately tipon the same ways that the B<iv<<ria has just vacated, an<l is c intended for Messrs. Urinnell, Minturn & Co.'s London 1 line. She is to be commanded by Capt. Chadwick, now ' i of the Mediator. t ! California Volunteers ?The new regiment |of ; i mounted men. to be under the command of one of our i j most experienced military men, will be inspected this j ( evening by Gen. Sandford, at the drill room corner of J ( Christie and Delancy streets. The companies are near- | < ly if not quite complete, and are composed of intelligent > , and active young men, principally mechanics, who will, > i no doubt, act a conspicuous part in the plains of Call i | fornia. j Anothfh Child Stolen ?We learn that as a little girl < was diagging a basket wagon, containing a child, 1 through Grand street, on Wednesday last, a man stepped j ' forwaid. watched the infant from the wagon and disap I I ! the passers by had time to arrest him. Nothing ha* since ' been hemd ot cither the child or man. Thii ii strange ? This is the second child that has been stolen within the last few weeks. What does it mean ? What are done with the stolen children ? Is the city infested with a gang of gypsies 1 I Thk Awwino Posts.?The work of destruction com- I menced in good earnest yesterday, and awning posts, ! like pride and fancy stocks, have had a fall. Nassau street looks like a freshly shaved chin, or an unshelled j oyster ; the coverings to its modesty a e being remov- ! ed, and it ia left baie to the ardent gazes of Old Sol ; ardent, indeed, for he in his anxiety to shine where for j j years he has not shone before, almost shrivelled into old age with his warmth, those who came between him and his lately laid open prize. In a word, Nassau street awning posts are down. Let this be a preliminary step to the removal of all the obstructions on the sidewalks throughout our city, including awning posts, lamp ] posts, fruit stands, pedlars and hydrants The improve- { meat will be for the public good; (and the cheerfulness , exhibited in our street in obeying the orders ot the power* that be, even at personal expenses of sixty or seven- 1 ty dollar* in some caies, is the best evidence that the whole community In our city need* no force to compel them to acknowledge the supremacy of the law.

The Rucoaoia raa4 the minutes of yesterday's pro CMdia|i, which were approved. A communication was read from the Quarter Maater lieneral to General Jeoiup at Washington. in reply to a letter from the Court, in relation to certain documentary svidence, requiring the Court to designate and make ipecial reference to the aame previoui to it* transmis Hon. The RcvoaDca hare read the fourth imtruction upon which it had been directed to inquire : 4th. In giving orderi. since the 1st of May, 1846, to afflcers of the ordnance, commiuary, quarter-maitar and pay departments, to lasua and distribute ordnance and ardnance stores, aubafctence stores, and for the disbursement and payment of public ftinda to certain designated individuals or bodies of men. and to inquire also whether he persons to whom such issues or payments were orlered or mada, war* legally in the service of the United States, or properly authorised to receive, or have the ;ustody of punlic property or money. The court is ordered to report the facts of the case, and to express an opinion thereon. General Onirics here row and said : If the court should *analfi?r m* na BiithnrinA/l to <riv? nrHora tn aiH raylor, and aslc the Commissary to furnish ration*, the ( Quarter Master to Mpply camp equipage, and other n?:et?aria? we can't mt along at all, unleu we have evilence

I felt myself fully authorised :o order the supplies they were entitled to by law? 1 uid any other supplies ordered by me, the i Court are aware, that if Jhey did not eome within the proviaioaa of the law. I am myself personilly responsible for them. 1 labored very hard to raise and , squlp the hardy young patriots of the west, as it appears before the Court, in consequence of the "imminent peril" which threatened General Taylor. If I had a right to call troops into the servloe, it was my duty to ieed 1 ind to clothe tbem. As I before slid I came here not to tccase any man, but to let the Court and community tnow that 1 was right in what I did, under the t)id artiste of war. The department use the words "Brevet Maor General Gaioos" in its correspondence. 1 have only ;o toll them that f am proud of the brevet, for it is a war ' jrevet, and I am proud of it. The Union has published ne aa a very grave offender, which offences, if I were 1 fuilty of, tno Court of Inquiry should order me to a gelerrl court martial, and I should bo shot; but I acted ac:ording to tho terms of my oath, to "serve the United ' States,"' and not "a party," but to serve tho .citizens of , :he United States. I acted under conscientious, upright pure motives, and called out volunteer aid to defend my :ountry,and under imminent peril; and to meet the ' emergency" suggested in the letter from the depart- ' nent in Augttst, 1S46. That letter expressly declares? " The emergency which would tolerate or excuse the issumption of this authority by a military officer in comnand at a distance from the seat of government, in anti:ipatioa of the President's action must be one indicating treat and imminent peril to the country?a peril so great | IUU ?

O. here called the attention of the sourt to his letter of Uth May, to the government, in which he predicted the triumph of Oen. Tayler, before receiving information of the result of the battles of the 3th and 9th May. The letter also suggested the proprie:y of having mounted gunmen, which he said would lave materially aided Oen. Taylor, and enabled him to lave pushed on to Monterey long before now. The Recorder here read some communicationa from :he departments in relation to the pay of officers, and j laving no reference to the caae of Oen. Oainet. Court?Let these documents aa they have nothing to j lo ~ith this business, be put in the appendix. Oen. Oaines here remarked in relation to one of the j etters read informally that he had given orders to sup)ly two pieces of artillery to the proper officers in Baton Elouge, in the middle of May last, because an insurrecion was anticipated among the black population in that ricinity. Howe rer, this had no reference to the case low before the court, but he gave the explanation as the >etter was read He felt himself authorised to order ;he two pieces of artillery, because war had occurred ipon their borders, otherwise he would not feel himself luthorized to do so without orders from Washington, Capt Montgomery, who had been examined yesterlay, wa* here recalled. Oen. Brooks ?Capt Montgomery, will you let the sourt know what Oenerai Taylor's forces were on the 3th of May ? Witni ss.?About 3300. The Recorder, (Capt Lee.)?Do you mean his fight ng force ? witness.?His fighting force amounted to about 1800. Oen Gaines here called the attention of the Court to mother of the letters from the Department of War, already published, in which the Secretary states, " an error of judgment, with such motives as have governed j four conduct in thin instance, the President *avs, cannot )e regarded at a crime," to which, continued Oenerai O. [replied, "that though appreciating the favorable inerpretation put upon my conduct by the President, who lid not question the purity of my motives, still, if he did lot consider I acted right, and that my conduct was correct, I insisted upon being being brought before a Court Partial. If War had not occurred " If war had not oc'urred?if the 'enemy" had not arisen?I would net have >een justified in actiug without orders from Waahingtv;n. Sut when war occurred, then a commanding officer it luthorized to act in any emergency. Why should you >r I, gentlemen, be kept in the service, unless we know >ur duty? The duties of the President are simple. If to uppiesH insurrection?and act in case of invasion?a Oenerai Officer was not to act until he heard fro.n the Departments, the country would be broken up. We it tend to military affair*. Military men should not be encumbered with too much writing. There i? too much in the way of writing required from officers in this way. There are too many papers. We ire incumbered with too many papers, and have too much writing to do. Military men should have jnly to do with the sword, the gun, the cannon and the rifle, and not to be incumbered with the unnecessary ind accumulated labor of writing fourteen hours a day. rhis was too much to expect from military officers. Oen. i 9. having concluded, when Capt. Mo^TooMitar was again recalled, and examined jjt the court. He testified the amount of Oen. Taylor's force before the battle of the Sth May was?the arm of trtillery, acting as infantry, about 460 strong ; the infantry arm, 1.450 ; dragoon, 175 ; light artillery, 180 ; rangers, 30 strong -making the aggregate of 3,185. Witness withdrawn. The Court here went into secret session, with a view o inspect the documentary testimony from the Departnent of War, and select such portions of the official 'ommunications between General Oaines and that De >artment as would apply in evidence against him before ' he Court, the government having solely to rely upon : his species of testimony. The two captains, Hopkins mil Montgomery, from the seat of war, though examin'4 on the part ot General Gaines, in order to accommolate them, yet his defence is not yet gone into formally, vhich it is expected Will commence to-morrow. It is inderstood that the Court will not accede to the applicar ion to call on the Governors of Kentucky and Louisia la. Colonel Payne, from the seat of war in Mexico, will be examined, and is daily expected here, with some jther American officers, direct Irom Matainoras. The whole case will be finally disposed of, it is expected, by Saturday or Monday. The veteran hero, so far, has i knocked the Department at Washington into a " cocked iat;" but the entire proceedings, it is understood, have i ieeu instituted more with a view to settle a principle of nilltary law,than to condemn Gen.Gaines as an "offender" lie has as you perceive, commented more than once upon he undignified and unprecedented course of the Union, n publishing surreptitiously the charges against him, irevious to their being officially brought before the ^ourt, with a view to prejudge his case.

On Mouday, as you have been informed, came >ff a contest of speed between the yachi Nortlisrn Light, of Boston, and the Syren, of New ifork. The terms of the race had been fixed at Tour hours' sailing, on a wind; but as a great part >f the morning had passed off before any wind :ould be " raised," it was determined to test the ailing qualities of the yachts by a run of fifteen niles to seaward, starting from the " Beaver-tail L.ight," and back again. In the trial, the North:rn Light won by two minutes and twelve #elonds. The friends of the Syren, however, insisted that the Boston yacht won the race, on account of the light breeze, and that had there been wind enough, she had stood no chance with her opponent. Accordingly a fresh challenw ?m? and accepted. Yesterday, the breeze being fresh and stiff, the two contesting yachts, with several others, accompanied by a number of boats, sailed out of the harbor, and rounding Fort Adams,again stood t* ?ea. On this occasion the wind was high enough, and the amateur sailors got thoroughly clucked, as sea after sea washed over their tiny vessels. The contest was kept up for two hours and a half, when it was found that the Boston yacht was no match for her antagonist. The Syren literally ran away from her; and to put an end to the race, it was acknowledged by the Bos- | tonians that the Northern Light had not the ilightest chance of " catching up." Thus ended this contest, which was for a time an exciting affair?both yachts being nearly of the same size, tonnage and rig, and being crack vessels of the rival cities. The Northern Light has lately, we believe, had an additioryo her sails, which enables her to sail well under a light breeze; but when there's a 44 wet sheet and a flowing sea," she is 44 no where" in the squadron. This has been a most exciting evening among the ladies of Newport?particularly the belles ot the Ocean House?in consequence of a kind of a general invitation extended to them by the gal lant yaehter* to 44 go a sailing." At lour o'clock, P. M., carriages, bearing fair but heavy loads, were seen galloping to the wharf Bind there depositing their 44 dry goods." Present iv a suure ui smnii ooais snoi out on tne Dosom 01 the bay. and, with the aforesaid freight, soou managed to cover the decks of every yacht in the 1 squadron. The fine sloop of the commodore ooked particularly gay above board, and remindsd one of the flag-ship of Cleopatra, with the }ueen herself, attended by her maidens, all a. board. The eagle wings of the yachts soon began to expand ; anchors were weighed and at five precisely, the whole squadron stood up the Narragatisett bay, led by the tall sloop of tne Commodore, with her blue flag flying at tne top. We have just dropped our glass lor a moment, to pen this epistle, ere the closing of mail. The whole squadron is yet in sight, like a flock of swans ; but I am unable, for want of a magnetic telegraph, to give you any particulars of the excursion.

They were leeu by Mr. Benia- I min Armstrong, a neighbor of Mr. Carter, who gave the alarm, and had them pursued. They were arrested by Mr. Eliiha Ketcham, and brought to the police court, and after an examination were committed by Justice Downing, to take their trial at the Court of Oyer and j Terminer. Wm.

The Convention then proceeded further to consider the report of the committee of the whole on the article relative to the election or appointment of the State officers, and those officers whose powers and duties are not local, fee. The question being on the adoption of Mr. Murphy's substitute for tbe last sec- j Lion of tne article relative to the inspection laws Mr. Murphy, by consent, amended his substitute thus: " All offices for the weighing, gauging, measuring, cul ling or inspecting any merchandise, produce, manufac ture or commodity whatever, are hereby abolished, and no such office shall hereafter be cr?ated by law; but { nothing in this section contained shall abrogate any office created for the purpose of protecting the interests of the State in its property, revenue, tolls or purchases, or of supplying the people with correct standards of weights and measures, or shall prevent the creation of any office for such purposes hereafter." Agreed to, and the section, as amended, adopted, 93 to : 10. Mr. Perkins moved to strke the Treasurer from the officers to be elected by the people. Lost, 90 to 10. Mr. Marvin moved to strike from the first section that part of it which Axed the salaries of the state officers, and insert in lieu thereof a provision leaving the compensation of all of tbe officers named in this article, cxcept the i Speaker, to be settled by the Legislature; such compenRation to be paid in lieu of fees or perquisites. Adopted 73 to 33. The Convention postponed final action on the first section, as amended, until a vote could be had on a motion to restore the second section, creating the office ?f State Engineer and Surveyor, which had been rejected yesterday. Mr. Chatfield moved to restore the section. This motion was debated until two o'clock, when, I without taking the question, the Convention took a restls.

The New Mills.?Tbe stockholders of the Globe and Ocean Mills, meet to-morrow, to take measures for the increase of their capital stock, so as to put the mills into immediate operation. These mills have now received and set up nearly all their machinery, snd in a lew weeiu win 00 prepared ier me manuiacture 01 ciotn, the size of the milii having been made larger than w as iriginally designed ; in consequence of this fact, and the necessity at the present time of providing some w 01 king capital beside stoat inveited in building* and machinery, in increase of capital is requisite. We have made some enquiry as to the competition which these wills will encounter from the English manufacturers under the new tariff, and find that the goids they will manuiacture, coat within a small fraction as much in England aa they do here The English manufacturer* work inlo their goods a partion of Ka#t India cotton, which costs only half as much a< American :otton, and b) this means sometimes undersell us in such fabric*; but the quality of the cloth in these cases is so inferior that even the Chinese and Brazilians, prefer to pay the enchanced price of American goods, except when they are deceived by the imitation ol American goods wich some of the Englishmen adopt. With a fairly levied 36 per cent duty we believe these mills "/ill do a belter business than tbe navigation Interest {aneially, especially as the domestic competion will : probably be much lessened for several years to come ? ! 1'he machinery has all the latent improvements, and intelligent and experienced agents have been appointed to luperimeml the manuiacture It may confidently l?e alHimed that under good manigeinent these mills cannot be prostrated unless ail the {real agricultural, mauulacturing and mechanical in:ere?ts of the country, ato first ruined, so that the people ;annu( affoid to puichate their goods; and even then lie) may l e ??vc<, lor should that time ever arrive, the irice ol lalmr will be so low that tbe loom and the ipindl- hue cm compete w itn England in the supply if 'I e 1 ill ero'i. nations with whom cotton cloths ate apii.lv Ih c nung more and more in uae ?

We do not see any amount carried to the credit ef the sinking fund. We are under the impression that twenty. , five thousand dollar* per annum wa* to be carried te 1 that fund, on account of the floating debt. This transfer may yet be made from the ninety thousand dollar* surplus, as that excess has not been appropriated to the payment of dividends, or any other payment, a* we can *ee by the report. There has recently been an increase in the debt of thi* company for the purchase and construction of boat* to run between New York and Norwich, in connection with the rood This increase to the debt will amount te about two hundred and fifty thousand dollars, making the entire debt about $1,030,000. Should the company issue bonds for the subscription to the Worcester and Nashua railroad, a* contemplated, the aggregate amount of the debt will not vary much from $1,360,000. The purchase and construction of s'.eamboat* to run in connection with the road, as the company may dictate, is an important and necessary improvement. The company have heretofore been unable to regulate thia department of their business, as it micht wish, in consequence of having to hire boots They have recently built one of the most magnificent boats Long Island Sound can boast of, and when placed in the line, there is no doubt but that she will attract a very large amount of travel. ' The local travel of this road I* rapidly increasing, and the receipts for the local busine** are sufficient to pay the current expenses of the company.

If the receipts continue to increase as they have for sometime past, that dividend will be at least three per cent on the par value of the stock, or equal to about Ave and a half per cent on the present market value. Although the construction of the Worcester and Nashua railroad, to connect with the Norwich and Worcester, ia for the present suspended, it must, before the lapse of many years, be built From the peculiar loca tionof this load, it would soon be one of the most im portant in the country, particularly so far as the in'erests of this city are concerned. The distance from Boston to Concord is seventy -five miles, and the connection ii formed in nearly a straight line by three railroads, viz: the Boston and Lowell, the Lowell and Nashua, and Nashua and ' oncord. The Boston and Werce?ter road it forty, four miles 1 hese two lines, viz: from Boston to Nashua, torty-one miles, and Button to Worrester. forty four miles form tho two aide < of an acuta tiiangl*, whose apex is Boston.
