From the principal (hipping port* on the east coast the reports arc cxcepsively dull ; at koiiio of tho Lincolnshire markets good parcel* of red have actually been offered at 4<>s per qr without leading to important transactions. a feeling prevailing there,as elsewhere, that prices have not yet touched the lowest point. The few parcels oi new wheat which have hitherto appeared at the different markets hare commanded comparatively j high rates, but a' tho itipplien increase prices of old and ne v a e lj eh to be equalized. For :\bout a fortnight previous to the 35th ult the wea-thor waa rather unsettled in Scotland; the rain ceased about that tim?, and the temperature having since been very high the crops having been rapidly brought forward; ' and out northern neighbors are likely, therefore, not to 1 bo much behind us with harvest uork. The piosper.t of an early harvest, together with the exceedingly depressed tone of the reports from the south had had considerable infiuonce on the trade, and wheat was quoted about '.If per quarter lower, both at Edinburgh and Glasgow, on Wednesday. In Ireland the weather seems to have taken tip about the same time as in Scotland. The reports of the Potato crop from thence have given rise to some uneasinessbut whether matters are really as bad as represented may bo questioned; that the disorder of last year has manifested itself is, however, too true. Prices of grain have nevertheless rather tended downwards, than otherwise, at the principal Irish markets The arrivals of Wheat coastwise into London have been decidedly small, only 4,700 quarters having been reported up to this (Saturday) evening.

Whether this will occur previous to tho fetiing in ol'tho winter, may he questioned; and it ii, therefore, quite possible th ft until next spring the foreign receipts may be comparatively i nimportant. These considerations may peihap* enable holders of that already here to o >tmn somewhat better rates than they otherwise could have reckoned on ; and hitherto they have manifested less anxiety to press sales than might have been expected Up to the present lime tho finer qualities of lore gn wheat have been held relatively higher than Kn^li-h?a circumstance which mny, in some m.-asui c, account tor the limited nature ol the transactions Country buyers have found no advantage incoming to London to buy wheat, having been enabled to purchase on quite as ea?v terms of tue farmers in their iekpeciive neiguboi hoods.

Ifew T vrk, Tliundajr. August M, ISM. 'jaa tiJiiLB BY THK G R E AT WESTE R N. ! THE HERALD FOR EUROPE. The steamship Great Western will leave this port at three aMoek this afternoon for Liverpool, and her letter bags will close at half past two o'clock. Our regular ?viition of the Herald for Europe, will be ready at one o'clock, in time to be sent by the mails of this steamer. It will contain the latest news from Mexico, and the army o' invasion ; a review of the commercial, financial, and political affairs ol the country, and whatever other news that may arrive up to the hour of publication. The price of the paper in wrappers, will be sixponce per copy. Mails made up at the office. The Foreign News?Settlement of the Sugar Duties? More Free Trails?Commercial Systems of Great Britain anil the United States. By the arrival of the steamship Caledonia at Boston, from Liverpool, we have ten days later intelligence from all parts of Europe. The news is rather interesting, as we learn by this arrival that the new Cabinet have passed the ordeal of the sugar duties, and are, therefore, compare tively safe in their new position. It appears that Sir Robert Peel aided the new ministry, and gave them the benefit of his personal popularity, and I no doubt his counsel and advice in framing the bill, to that it would meet the views of a majority in the lower house. The settlement of this sugar question, and the progress towards free trade made by the basis upon which the duties upon that important article now rests, have had a ^ood effect upon the markets generally, and tended to create more confidence in commercial aftairs. Capital has, therefore, been more abundant, and there appeared to be more disposition to employ it in mercantile pursuits than usual. This is indicative of more favorable times, as soon as the other political questions of any importance, under consideration, are disposed of. The adjournment of Parliament will put at rest all the matters likely to aiFect commercial matters, when we may look for some real improvement in the money market and in business generally. Great Britain and the United States are somewhat similarly situated in relation to their commercial systems. Within the past six months great and important changes have been made in each; and there is very great doubt in the minds of the commercial classes, as to the operation of the new systems, and un'il something more is known of them, they will be very cautious in their movements. There has been a greater revolution in the commercial eystem of the United States than in that of Great Britain, and the alterations made in our tariff laws go into effect much quicker than those of Great Britain. What wo do in ] iMonths, the ministry of England require years to perfect. A very gradual change is made in the commercial policy of England, while the most abrupt and sudden changes are mode in the commercial policy of the United States upon the most unreasonable data, and merely as an experiment, and more in accordance with party principles. than in accordance with tlif? hest intprpan of the country. Tarty expediency required the al- J terations tnado in our tariff, while the real in- ! terests of the masses was looked to in the altera- I tions made in the tariff of Great Britain. The first J is an experiment; and the Eecond, the result of I necessity and experience. We have opened markets for the manufactures of Great Britain, without receiving any guaranty that we shall find additional markets for our products. It is true that we are placed upon the same footing as other nations and can enter our agricultural products as favorably as any others, but it does not follow that we are to be benefited in any way by that, as it is only under peculiar circumstances that we can compete successfully with other grain growing countries. We cannot, therefore, resist the impression, that the changes which have been made in ?he tariffs of both countries, will operate more to the advancement of the j principal interests of England, than to the prosperity of any domestic interest of the United States. While the new tariff of this country will operate more advantageously to Great Britain, than the new English tariff will for the United States, we have no evidence that our tariff will tend to any improvement of our own interests. We are existing under a new Older of things, or in ether words have at present no commercial system at all. We are hanging between two systems, one we must soon drop, and the other we must soon adopt; and it is pretty difficult to keep the wheels of commerce going. The only sure way to keep clear of the difliculties these changes threaten to produce, would be to come to a stand still at once, and wait Ihe course of events. *We have not even the probability of a deficient harvest in Great Britain, to console us. There is at present no prospect ol any additional outlet for our immense surplus of agricultural products, and there is every evidence of a large importation of foreign merchandize without a corresponding exportation ol our own produce in payment.? There appears to be a complete derangement of commercial matters, and there is no health in us. This can bo principally attributed to the effect of the new commercial systems of both countries, upon trade, even in anticipation of their operation; and until things become permanently settled upon the new basis, we cannot expect any very great activity; or any important movements in the commercial world. | ISBW3 FROM E.UR0PK VIA IN EW JIAVIJM.?ACIfimS and Co. sent a messenger to this city, by tho way of New Haven, with tho news brought by the Caledonia.
