The barracks there were blown down, and H4 men, women and children of her Majesty's 50'h regiment had perished; 135 have been wounded, and four privates are unsung.

This , oonnderatlon has had a depress ng ertect upon the funds t since Monday.

Cottox Market, July 36?We make no further emark about the extent of the crop in the United Sta< ?, that being an ascertained point, according to the stal ments given in our previous circulars during this im nth. The great subject of interest for us now Is the state and prospects of the Manchester trade, and the rate of consumption generally. Upon this point we nave lent reason tor satisfaction than might have been hoped for. Not only are the profits of spinning and manufacturing greatly decreased. hut have become in aome canes non-remunerative: added to which, the facili- . ty of sale is greatly abridged, evrn at much reduced ' ratea. From this canm our market has been leu ipirited ! and flatter than it otherwise would have been, and, we may say. has been under considerable check. A different and improved state of things in Manchester would now be very sensibly felt amongst ua in Liverpool generally. For this improvement it appeara we must wait, hoping that the good promwe of an abundant harvest may contribute somewhwt to the desired end Prices remain nearly as before, with a slight tendency upwards. 3 300 Ame - ican and 400 Surats have been taken on spcca- i lotion, and i.700 \merican. 4V) Pernams. and 40 Maiiraa ' for export Sales to-day. fl.000 to 8.000 bales.

London Corn Trade, July 94?The time intervening j between the sailing of the laet steamer and the dat* of j our present publication ie so short, that we have hut little to report in connection with this market. On the 30th instant wheat told at a decline of 9s per anarter below the prices obtained on the ISth. Tho holders of foreign wheat would *ot submit to the decline looked for by millers, and only a retail butineaa waa done at bout 2s per quarter decline Flour was Is to 3s per sack lower, and tho trade dull. On the 12d the supplies brought forward were.small. so that the business transacted was at prices somewhat higher than those current on the iOth. Free foreign wheat was also held at easier ratea. The greater part of this article now unconsumed is of inferior quality, injured by long continuance in the bonded warehouses. Net?ly arrived Ameiioan flour ia in good demand, at price* varying with the reputation of the brand' At yesterday's market the wheat trade remained dull, and to few transactions took place that Krices were nominally the same as those current on londar. Floating cargoes of Indian com were in request for shipmeut to Ireland, an.) Is dearer.

Police Intelligence. Aco. 10.? Thrtali to Extort MoneyOfflcer Stewart, of the lower police office, arrested yesterday a man ! by the name of John Clark, a dealer In paintings, re 1 aiding in the granite building, corner of Chambers street ! and Broadway, on a charge of using threats toward* Mr. 8 J. Sylvester, broker, No 41 Wall street, with the view 1 of extorting money, under the following circumstance* : It appear* that Clark entered the office of Mr. Sylveiter ' on hriday last, and handed him a letter, and almost immediately left On Mr. Sylvester opening the letter, he 1 found it to contain the following language i? | " Sir?I hare something of very great importance at ! the present, partleularly to youreelf. If worth your 1 while to notice this communication. I shoul be pleated i to *ee you in psnon, at my place of business, any time I from Sto 11 A M . or from I to 9 P. M. Unlet* you call soon, the matter will bo disposed of to your groat diaadvantase " This latter belnf anonymous, Mr. Sylvester imme1 diately pursued Mr Clark, to endeavor to obtain some 1 explanation ; and overtaking him noar the corner of Bioa I stree' and Wall, asked aim to explain the meaning I of stioh an opi?tla. Mr. Clark replied that he (Mr Syl1 vaster) knew where he lived, and he would explain something to that effect at hi* place of busines*. Mr. J Sylvester accordingly went to the store of Clark, in the granite building, and was at onoe Invited into a private room. Clark closed the deor* end window*, and ; then stated that the object of the interview was to inform Mr Sylvester that he had in hie possession a hook, in 1 manuscript, called the " Wall Street Manual," to obtain which had cost him a Urge amount of money ; and that, | if published, it would ii\jure Mr. Sylvester, and be the j mean* of driving him out of the citv. He farther stated j that an offer h?d been made to purchase the book bv a young man named Edward Charles, eon of old Charles j and that, unless he agreed to withdraw a lawsuit whioh ' was now pending againat him, pay expense*, and giro a good round sum beside*, he (Clark) would dispose of thn book, or publish the manuscript himself, which would ultimately drive him (Sylvester) out of the city. Upon these threata being made, Mr. Sylvester left the , premises, and applied to Justice Osborne, and a warrant was issued for the arrest of Clark; and after a hearing : being had in the case, the Justice held the accused to Dan, in tne sum 01 $iwu, lor mi appearanee ai tnun 10 i I answer the charge.

Ws have six days' later intelligence faom all parts of Europe by the arrival of the steamship Great Western at this port, from Liverpool. The intelligence is rather important than ofber? I wise,and in a oommercial point of view rather fa- (' vorable for the principal interests of this country. The depression in the cetton market was only of t a temporary character, and produced by the in- " activity in the manufacturing districts more than | by an excees in the supply of the raw material. In. the money market very little change had tak< m place, either in the supply or the demand. T) ?e political questions in agitation h^L rather an un fa- | vorable intluonce upon the stocK market, afTrjct- ? ing operations, however, more than quotations. As soon as these questions were disposed of, it . was anticipated there would be a general improvement in commercial matters. CX>nside rable interest had been excited by the position the new cabinet had taken in relation to the sugar duties. The proposition made by the prime minister had been pretty well received, and there was every probability of the new ministry 6U?tSLiniojc itself j upon this question. If it succeeds in so doing, it will give them strength and create public confidence, which is very much wanted at the present moment in Great Britain. The accounts from the continent of Europe,, in ; relation to the harvests, are very unfavorable, as | it appears pretty well settled that the crops of Russia will turn out almost a complete failure. ! Should this prove to be the faot, it will be a form- ! nate thing for the agricultural interests #f this oountry. If these accounts are true, aod if the harvests of Great Britain turn out to be a full average, there will be a demand for or?r agricultural products which we could not otherwise expect. There is a deficiency in the harvest of Great Britain every year?that is, then home sup- I ply is never equal to the home demand for oonsumption, and an annual importation is made from the grain-growing countries of the Continent, particularly from Russia. This supply be- j ing in all probability cut off by the deficient har- I vest in that country, attention must be turned to this country. We shall not only be required to supply tb6 deficiency in Great Britain, but if the \ accounts from the North of Europe are not ex aggerated, there is every probability of a supply ] being required from us to feed the people of those countries. The changes in ths corn laws of Great Britain ! may be an immediate benefit to the people of | that country, and prove at once more advantage- j ous to us than we anticipated. It is only under : circumstances similar to those given above that 1 the modification of these laws will be of any par- i ticular service to our agricultural interests. I Whenever there is a general deficiency in thft harvests of Europe, we have the monopoly of the supply. The harvests of thin country never were more abundant than they have been this year. We have ! breadstuff's sufficient to feed the nations of Europe. This is in fact the granary of the world; i and if there was a demand corresponding with : our ability to produce, we could supply Ae world j with the statf of life. A very moderate foreign | demand for our breadstuffs will have a very fa- j vorable effect upon prices. An outlet for u very j small per cent of the surplus product, has a very j wonderful effect upon the price of that remain- f ing, and an unexpected external demand to any extent invariably inflates prices, and produces i speculation. It is to be hoped that the scenes of last fall will not be acted over again. The ruin which followed the speculations of that period has not yet been forgotten, and we trust that it will exert a great influence in preventing similar operations this year Thx Nkw York Post Oftick Aoaih.?We are compelled in self defence to advert to the mismanagement of the Post Office in this city again. We shall soon give it up,however,as a bad job. On Sunday last, we received a letter from our correspondent in New Orleans, dated on the same day when the New Or leant Picayune mailed an Extra to us, and we did not receive the extra till about eight o'clock the next day, Monday. Both arrived by tt<e same mail, but for some cause or other, the paper was suffered to remain some eighteen or twenty hours in the Post Office, before it was delivered to us. We are ^tting out of patience i with the whole affair, and sincerely wish that the j ides of November were oome, so that we might plant Morris in the gubernatorial chair,and thus get rid of him. But if he were put in that high ofiioe, it would be ten chances to one that he would not stay put, but would hunt up some other office for which ha would get as near four dollars per j day as possible. We are about done with the Post Office, however; we can't expect aay thing from Gave Johnson. Mfe believe he is loca- I ted ia the Mammoth Cave in Kentucky, away in ' the darkest coiner, so dark that it ia impossible for < him to read the newspapers. Tux Hon. Louis McLans.?We leam by a gentleman who arrived yesterday in the Great Western, that Mr. McLane, our Minister at the Prtm-f rtf Qf Tatnoa urill n^rinvAlv roturn Knma in the packet of the 19.h init. Daring Mr. McLane's residence in England, he has on all occasions supported the dignity of his country, and demeaned himself as becomes the representative of a great and powerful nation. He has acquired n host of friends, and made himself very popular i by his successful exertions to settle the Oregon question and prmerve the peace of the world. The friends of peace, and the merchant princes of Liverpool, gave a sumptuous entertainment in token of thetr estimation of him; and we think it would not he a bad idea, for our merchants and people in this city, to give him a like compliment here when he returns. Stsamsuip Great Western.?We think the Bostoniana had better give up the contest, and adrcit at once, honestly, that this steamship is* superior to any of the Cunard line; and, also, that New York is a better terminus for a steamship line than Bosion The Western took 188 passengers from Liverpool, and brought here 139, having had a fine bouncing boy born during the passage, whose name will be Great Western. Until one of the Cunard vessels comes up to this, we think the Bostonians must admit that we are ahead ot them ; and if one of them should equal it, we will apply to Captain Matthews, and see if he can't beat them by having twins the next time. Think of that. Singural Arrival at Port d* Pi.atta ?We are informed by Capt. Kincaide.ofthe Hudson, at . .1 <l _ i o-:j this pon* mill in? scnooncr diiuc, oi urn? ion tuna burthen, belonging to this port, arrived at Port au l?|aita a few days previous to his sailing. She was twenty day* on the passage; and the most singular thing connected with it is, that there were but two men on board. From Pout d* Platta.?By the arrival ef the schooner Hudson, in twelve days passage from that place, we have intelligence to the effect that President Santana had left two days previous for Ganaives. The purport of hi? visit there is supposed to have reference to the difficulties with 1 the Haytiens. It is presumed lie will effect a reconciliation. i ( Oeeqo* Correspondence.?The Union has commenced publishing the correspondence connected with the Oregon treaty. This correspondence is < very interesting, and ws are sorry we cannot embody it in to-day's paper, in oonsequence of i j the press of foreign news. We think we shall be able te> insert some of it to-moirow. Imtkrrstino prom Central America ?By the | brig Matilda, Capi. Crowell, arrived- here, yea- | terday. We hRve been placed in possession of news from Belize, Honduras, to the 23d ult. The following letter from oar correspondent is of much interest? T Bkuz*. (Hon ) July 23,1846. In all probability, ere this reaches yon, the newi of tho att mpt to assassinate President Carrer*l*l^J}'* ?^binet, in Guatemala, will have invucu new ioik. L,e?i it nvgtit not, however, 1 Will give you the particular*, as far as we have got them in this place. On the occasion of the funeral obsequies of the late Archbishop of Guatemala, (deceased at Havana and conveyed thence for interment,) a plot was discovered, which had it succeeded, great changes must have resulted through it. The artillery were ordered out and planted in the streets, and the infantry were posted in every part of the city. The cathedral whero the obsequies were beingjierformed, was inscantly deserted, the people flying in terror to their homes. No outbreak occurred ; though it is confidently asserted that a revolution is about taking place. We have ao news of interest here, except that the notorious Oorea de Costa is said to be down the coast. He has lately been figuring in Trinidad. The American brigantine Charles Hammond, sailed on Saturday last, for New Orleans; the Matilda leaves to-day, and the Pelou will leave on Saturday. The American schooner Bola de Oro, remains here as a coaster between this port and Yzabftl. Provisions are abundant at moderate price*. Lumber of all kinds is high. His excellency Col. Fancourt, H. M. Superintendent of t'.iis settlement is absent on a visit to Jamaica, a:.d returns next month ; the government being 'idministeren in his absence by the Hon.

Lane, we have received files of Matanzas papers to the 29th July inclusive. We find not a word of interest. Business was dull?unusually so for the seascn. Fevers and other local diseases of the Island were much less prevalent than in former years. The crops were suffering some injury from the want of rain. Theatrical and Musical. Bowcsv Thbatsc ? Notwithstanding the great oom. I petition existing at present In New York, among those I engaged in catering for the recreation and amusement of ' the people, and the variety of place* that are open for ' their reception, this establishment, under the manage- ! meat of Mr. Jackson, preserves the even tenor of it* way, and receive* a full share of patronage. No matter what . may be the itate of the weather?whether it is cool or ! hot?wet or dry?go to the Bowery Theatre.and you are | are to see it filled by a fashionable and resectable au- j dience It no doubt appear* to the uninitiated a mysterv, | how it can be that the interest belonging to thl* establish- | ment is kept up and never permitted to flag or decrease.

Last evening Mr Wood was received with prolonged applause, which broke out again and again during the various correct delineations of the character* he asaumed. The drama entitled " A Father'* Malediction," and the farce of " What's the Row About 7* were admirably carried through. Thi* evening, the la*t of the re-engagement of Mr. Wood, a atreng hill 1* presented. The grand historical drama of " Napoleon," and the melo-rirnma of " The Planter and his Dog," will le beautifully put upon the stage, with a powerful company. The mirth- 1 provoking burletta of ' Three Miles on the Harlem Road" will also be played, and an admirmblo farce it is. To the amateur or stranger, this theatre itrengly recommends itself, and all who go onoe go again.

From the character of the criticism* which appear in our foreign paper*, wo are disposed to believe that the vacancy ere i ted by the death of tne lamented Power can be properly filled by Mr. Collins. In order to form an opinion of hi* merit* we have taken the pain* to overlook our Oablin exchange paper* te see what they say of him, being aware that for forming an opinion on the merit* or demerit* of a delineator ot Iriah character, Dublin audiences and Dublin journal* maintain a pontion tint is never disputed We find the f Ho wing in the Dublin Fi itman'i Journal : ' Collin* (till continue* to be the great attraction at the Queen'* Royal Theatre We hive alreaJy given our opinion so fully and decidedly on hia merit* a* a ro- 1 preventative of Iriih character, that ang thing now Mid could be little more than repetition.

[From the New Orleans Courier, August 37.] We are indebted to a gentleman direct from Camargo for the following information:? He informs us that the Rancheros are all back or getting back to their homes, as fast as possible, and goiag to work on their ranches again, having abandoned me idea of conquering the United States, and subjecting it to their own will. If fcuch is the caio Canales and Carrabajal must have but few troops under thoir command?report says they b ive none, as their forces ware made up entirely of raacheros. Rumor says there is not at this time iu Monte. ey more than one thouiand or fifteen hundred meu, but thHt they are fortifying it a" fast as possible. It is understood that it is the intention of the commanding General to remove his quarters, together wittt the ?J and 4th regiments, to Camargo by the first opportunity. . Wo understand that the command of Matamerai, after tho departure of the troops, will be coimaiited to the charge of Major Clark; his command as Military Governor will be sustained by four companies of artillery, with a sufficiency of volunteers to maintain his position.
