NEW YORK HERALD. S?w York. TuroUy, September 1, IN4tt. Newt from the Ariuy and Siivy. We have received, by the last mail from the south, numerous letters from our military and naval correspondent# stat.onrd in Cainar^o, New Orleans, in the Gulf Squadron, Matamoras, and other places, in po?se??ion of our forccs. We give many of them on the outside of this day's Hiruhl. They are to a late da<e, and are particularly lull and Interesting in their de'ails. Foreign Intelligence. The Britannia is due at lloston, to-day or tomorrow, with two weeks later intelligence from all parts of Europe. The news will probably l>e of an important character, certainly so lar as the | politics of Ireland unti France are concerned. Ttie advices may come iu short sentences over the lightning line. Our Mexican Relation*?I lie I'eace CrUI?? Will the War Continue 1 Our relations with Mexico now absorb all other questions ; it is the only question of the day. The vessel now, probably, on its way front Mexico, with the news of the reception of Sautu Anna and suite at Vera Cruz, will, in a few days, be hourly looked for. It wilt aiford us intelligence of high and interesting import, and the readers of the Herald will have a full and paiticular account thereof, in due season. How will the appearnnce of S^nta Anna at Vera Cruz airect the reception of the otficer from the American Comniydore, with the letter of Mr. Buchanan to the Mexican Minister of Foreign Relations I To whom will the letter be handed on its arrival at the fortress of San jnau D'Ulloa ! The detention of the special messenger of our government at Pensacola ; his journey thence to New Orleans, and departure fiotn the last place for the Rras.-os on the 14th only, will, certainly have prevented his arrival at Vera Cruz before the 22'l Angus', by which time the Ex President oi ?*it x cu win imvt* iiiHUf iin entry iiuu turn uny , eonsfcjiiunily ihere mav be a difficulty as to who is to have the peace overture from our government Will our commodore be allowed to send his il l# of truce with the dispatch to the Mexican capital, or, will he deliver it to the commander of the fortress t If the latter, the fortress, being in the possession ol iho pronunciammtu forces, the despatch, as a matter of course, will fall into the hands of Santa Anna himself.? Who. then, is to give the response to Commodore Connor 1 That is a very important consideration ; and, 1 therefore, it is that we regard the news published j in the Washington Union of the defection of the forces in the capital as, in every respect, fortunate for the early elucidation of the way and the how, our oveiture to Mexico will be metby the Mexican chiefs. The news, in question, is to the 4th ult ; it foreshadows the triumphant success ol'the change. We take it for granted, then, that Santa Anna is, by this time, once again at the head of Mexi- t can affairs: that a new Congress is summoned ; that a more general unanimity will speedily prevail, and additional energy in the government in- 1 spire greater confidence in the whole of the people, and that the reception of the overture will be by him. We are not unaware of the talent of Santa Anna, nor of the way in which, heretoforo, he ha* carried the people of Mexico with him ? Ho will, probably, l?e able to do it now. He will ; take his station at the helm, too, at a perif d "'hen, i had he not been called upon to do so, President 1 Parades would have been placed in an awkward dilemma, pi dged as he is, no/cm t'o/ctu to the ! continuance of the war. General Sunia Anna will thus re-step into the Mexican Capital, and relieve President Paredes from an iiksome responsibility ; the knowledge o! which will, without doubt, have great effect in reconciling the feelings of the latter to the substitution ofSanta Anna for himself in the national chair, and acrelleratc the junction to which we alluded on the 22.1 ult. of the forces of each. On the subject of the reception of the dispatch, from Commodore Connor, under a flag of tiuce,we cannot but b>! pleased to be able to refer to our file of the 25 h July; the Havana letter of Mentor, published on that clay, from a source on which wo liny depend, mentions the exact event now about to happen, and which is therein stated lik ^ly to remove the insurmountable barrier in the way of peace?a proposition from our government on the return from Santa Anna. That proposition, oddly enough, will knock at the door of the fortress of San Juan D'Ulloa, a short time after Santa Anna's appearance within if. We are thus to assume that Mr. Polk's invitation to open a diplomatic intercourse will at all events be received with courtesy?with the courtesy of a Mexican. xjui win trie mex.oan government assent to the reception of, or will they send, an embassy 1 And what arc the terms ou which Mexico i9 likely to make a peace, or those upon which our own government propose to base it 1 These are questions of considerable import- 1 anoe, but questions which, at present, we are unable to solve. We are under the constraining impulse, to confess, however, that, on the subject of the settlement of the terms of peace, the proposal recently made public to divide Texas into two Sta'os?to siive to the Mexican portion of | the division a majority of the elective vote, and, therefore, a considerable share of the senatorial voice at Washington?will, if handled in a delicate way, in the commission to be appointed, go far to make the bounda?y likely to be proposed, 'palatable to the leading intellects of the Mexican nation. It will, under certain circumstances, give a voice to Mexico herself in our national Congress, and lead on to the annexation of ChiI ? uimiiua, otu. au. But, alter all, the question of pence or war must be settled instanter, and it probably will be, if Commodore Connor acts with the decision that marked his course early in May. If we are to place any reliance on the sentiments of the locomotor, published in the Herald, of yesterday morning, Mexico is at this moment better prepared for peace than she has ever been since the annexation of Texas. Mexico is now in o peace crisis; the next news is, therefore, anxiously looked lor. Naval Movements ?In our Mexican intelligence published yesterday morning, we mentioned the late attack on Alvnrado, which proved unsuccessful in consequence of the want of vessels of light draft. The steamer Spitfire, Commander J. Tatnall, and Vixen, Commander J. Sands, sailed on Sunday morning for the Gulf. With the assistance of these two splendid vessels, the attack on Alvarado will be renewed, and the tawn will inevitably be taken. Commanders Sands and Tatnall are two of our most experienced and gallant officers; and the subordinate officers are true seamen and gentlemen. Commodore Perry goes out in one of the vessels to act as Vice Commodore, or second in command to Commodore Connor. Commander v.?u~i .. u.... ?r . i iv. uuisuil o uuk in luo u|iuiiic c?a woici ui despatches to the Pacific squadron. He will be landed at Chagres, with Ilia escort, and will theree cro?s over to Panama. As soon as Alvarado is taken, Tampico will bo attacked, and finally Han Juati d'lJlioa, unless tho Mex can government should lirst conclude to accept our offer of negotiation. Tho capture of Alvarado will atlord a great many facilities for the attack on J?an Juan U'Ulloa, and should negotiation fail?our squadron will receive orders to take that fortress, noltn$ vUtni, as Old Rough and Randy would say. The order will be given with reluctance, as it is tho disposition of our government to be on the most friendly terms with the Vera Crn/ans; but should tho war continue, the possesion of fc)an Ju&n d'l'lloa will b? necessary to iu, mmI It mu*t b? Commercial Affairs?The Btulnew Pro** pccta of the Country. Thi* ia the season when business usually commences, and the country merchants make their appearance in the principal maikets, but we as yet see none of these evidences of activity usually exhibited at this time. There is a very fair amount of business Joint:, bin nothing near the extent generally realised upon the opening ot the fall. Wo can only attribute this state of things to the changes recently made in our commercial system ; there is no other cause for the apathy which prevails so generally among the commercial Classen, and it is our impression that had the tari if remained as it was?had there been no changes made in the financial policy of the government, there would have been a very large and profitable business done in this city this fall ; as it is, with these changes in the perspective, no one will pur chiuse a single dollar's worth more than is actually required for immediate consumption. Country merchants coming into the city purchalk* va^y cautiously, me/ely making up their assortments at home to work otI? their stock through the approaching winter. The interior is alraudy preity supplied with cotton, woollen, worsted and linen- manufactures of all sorts, and it will require full six months consumption to use tWiri up. In tht?meantime,the importations into this and other ports, under the warehousing system are large, and the quantity of goods accumulating for entry under the new tariff, after the 1st of December nexj, will be increased. These goods coming into the market must have u very maierial and unfavorable influence upon prices, and we have not the slightest doubt but that all kinds of foreign and domestic cotton and woollen manufactures will be cheaper next spring than they have been for a long time. This depreciation in price will be produced more by an over supply than by the reduction in the duty, and will have a tendency to promote speculation and overtrading, and this leads us 'o think that tiiere will be a more extensive business transacted next spring than has been realised for several years. The country is now in a very healthy and prosperous condition, and it will be for the interest of every one to preserve this prosperity permanently. We have it in our power to prevent any very great speculative movement, if we would confine trade to its legitimate channels, but the first moment any large class of merchants commence any speculation, that moment our prosperity can date its downfall, for when the mania gets once in operation. there is no limit, and it orilv ceases with the ruin of a large number of those engaged. There is at present every probability of an extensive speculaiion in cotton, before the season is over. The accounts in relation to the growing crops are so generally unfavorable,that the impression is almost universal that the yield will be below thit of either of the past three years. There is no doubt but the prospect of a short crop, will lead to extensive speculations in the raw material, both in this country aud in Great Britain. We tru.-t that it will not extend to any thing else, and what is more, we hope the planters will realise the full benefit of any deficiency in the supply of the staple. Thk Dutch Fkiqati Jasson ?Wo yesterday visited this line vessel at hi'r berth in our harbor, nearly opposite Castle Garden, and found her a vary handsome frigate of forty-four guns. She is commanded by Commodore Willenex, and manned by three hundred fine, well-built seamen.? Everything was in capital order, and the neatness and regularity that reigned on board indicated a Vigh state of discipline. At the time we happened to be on board, Commodore Stringham paid a a visit to the vessel, and was received with the customary salute. Our citizens will, we trust, extend the usual courtesies and civilities to the officers of this fine vessel. She remains here for about three weeks, and her after destination is probably the Gulf of Mexico. i.ntfxlitfknoe from honduras?trade in Maii<~gany ? The Robert Bruee, Capt. Wade, ar. rivei this morning from Belize, Honduras, with the Obtervcr to the 8th inst. inclusive. The following interesting article on the trade in jiiaji<'H?ny, iippeiirs in uini [m(>rr : (Krom the Belize (Hon) Observer, An)? 8] As there hat he? n very considerable talk regarding the staple export of Belize, mahogany, it might not he thought amim if wo "-rite a few words on this subject. Jn 184J, after n very lo >g depression in the market, mahagany hegm gradually to improve in prico, from an average of 5d to 10 . till the beginning of this year, when it ha* suddenly assumed a downward tendency, and has caused consiileiable uneasiness in the rauids of many. The primary cau>e of the depression consisted of the heavy stock of smull wo?d accumulated in the London and Liv erpool docks, nnd which, unfortunately, wai held by speculators who had paid n long price for it, so ai to become the s<de holders in the market, and to prevent any com ng to public sale. When money became scarce in London, doubts beg*n to be felt that the speculators would not hold on much longer, and woulu be compelled to tell at ? sacrifice This however, with the exception of one ef the principal holders absconding, and the consequent failure of one or two minor holders, has not taken place ; and although those circumstances have indicted considerable injury to the character of the market, very large seles to the amount of uenrly a million feet, ccuncd in the month of .May, to consumers, at good prices. On the 1st May, the stock in h*nd was 4 930,000 The deliveries to consumers amount to 901,000 Leaving a balance of 4,038,000 For the most part, small trash wood, which ought never to have been cut. Since the 1st May, very little wood has gone from here, only 2,470 M. having been shipped to 1st August this year, against 3 406 M last year; and the greater part of this year's shipment arrived prior to 1st May, very little having been shipped since Should, then, the sales have continued as large in the following months as they were in May, the stock in the London Docks will be very much reduced. Great fears wi re entertained both in hngland and here, that thero would be an eniirinous quantity of wood cut this year, on account of the great increase in the number of the gangs, but this has proved quite fallacious. Some of the hones here estimated the cutting) ol thia year as high as 1I1,. millions tmt it is now well known that the cutting* will not lie more than an average season, say 71 ia8 millions; this has occurred from the number of the gangs, formerly about 70, being distributed into 130, wiih no more hauds than formerly were in the 70; and the new gangs having all to go to woik with young raw battle Nearly every on* ot these failed, and caused a partial failure to the old established gangs, from the want of the neressary number of men to ge: out the wood. The unprecedented[y long dry weather also caused 'nortality nnd weakness in the cattle, which, with the want of manual labor, has made the season merely an average one We are ourselves aware that one ol the 130 ganici consisted of a captain, carpenter, and one man, and we have learnt fium good authority that half of the foremen were incapable ol doing their duty. Certainly a sufficient reason for their gang's failure. The ? ant of floods has delayed the wood in going a* early a? usual to market thnyear, which we think will have a good eflect in Kngland. as ha.l it got there soon. it. together with the stock on hand, would probably have caused a further ? ma.Laf Aalfim i ?, o . ..

The proclamation issued bv hia Kxcellency Col. Kan| court, tortudding til parties from cutting in the Crown lands,will have a goodolfeet, as it will cutoff about 40 gangs, who have heen the principal cuttor* of small wood. The breaking up of those gangs will of course throw a great many hand* out ot employment, and reduce tho rate of wages to something nearer their standard i value, as Irom the gieat competition for workmen at the commencement of tuis ) esr, ?he men were induced to nak higher ? sgea than their Ubor was worth. Heavy and just coinplainta ware also made by merchants and cutters, again.t the system of parties actually worth nothing, being allotted to cut o:. Crown lands without paying lor the tiees; whiikt many of them had paid very iarg<9 sums for their grants On the whole, we a. e not inclined to take such a gloomy view of the position of the Maho "ull?r c*n 10 "<> h"i?K out*r?vera? *ou of good wood, ?e)l it at ftO dofiari per M and have aomething very comiortabie over; and poia'iblv alio with a Heady market at bom*, be glad that the feverish excitement of the pa?t year 11 gone.

We take it from the Belize Observer of the 8th August Wm have received from an attentive correspondent, unJer date of the 26th of Jul)-, the following important intelligence There has been an attempt at revolution iu Salva lor, instigated. it is said, liy the Bishop for some act* of the Government unfavorable to the I lor?y It was suppressed. however, and the Bishop is conliued to lus own house at prer?nt.

[Krom the Belize Observer, July 35 ] To the attention of a correspondent we are indebted for the following brief outline of the state of attain in Guatemala:? wuatkmel.a, 1uu1 juiy. low This city has all the day t>een in a considerable state of commotion, on account of the report that a conspiracy against the Government has been detected; soldiers are potted at different parts of the town and at the doors of houses in order to apprehend suspected individuals. Many persons have already been taken, but n great number ha%e escaped, having fiad timely warning that their conspiracy bad been detected The conspiracy appeared to have been nurtured for a considerable time, uad was ramified over different parts of the country. It appears to have originated with a number of young men ot respectability, and afterwards to havo beenjoineu by old?r heads?pome, men woll known as revolutionary characters ; and it is said, was organised for the pu' pose of overtnrowing Gen.

About 8 or 10 peisons are already arrested; some ot whom have mado full confession*, which are, however, not yet made public, but probably will lie so in the course of a few days, when 1 shall not fail to inform you fully on the Subioct It is repoited thatseven hundred muskets have been found, which it is said have been hid since the revolution of Montero?o in February, last year, but this is discredited. Gen Carrera appenrs toihe generally liked, and still retains tjie good opinion and confidence of the people 'l'hero appears to be every prospect of its ilill continuing, as he merits it by the moderation of his conduct ; and if he had only good advisers upon whom he could depend, his reign at Guatamata, no doubt, would be long prosperous and beneficial. Gen Pais, the ex-Minister, on the contrary, is distrusted and hated; all his measures are looked upon with an eye of suspicion, and he appears to have meiited the distrust by someot his political incasuies. It is said tliat he returns to Yzabal id a few days to re-assume the office of Commandant of that Port It is currently reported that Mr. luaijuin Duran is to succed Gen Pais tu ortice. an I that it is the intention of that gentleman to dispossess (ion. Tail of bis cvmmindancy as soon as he is made Miuister. Theatricals, die. I'ahk Tmeathi.?A large and fashionable audience welcomed Mr. and Mrs. Kean back last evening to the Park boards?the stage of their many triumphs. The tragedy of the " Gamester," was performed to a very large house, wita such effect as to produce an actually painful impression on the audience. Mr. Kean't Beverly, we consider one of his greatest parts. The vividness of the death scene, was Irigntfully intense. Every throe appeared the actor's last, und one really imagined that he was looking upon the agouized death of a suicide.? Mrs. Kcan's Mrs. Beverly, was marked by the usnal beauty of that lady's acting, but in toe last scene it was perfectly harrowing. Her phienzied shriek, where she excl lims in an agony of terror and doubt, "'Tis false old man !" thrilled every heart in that vast audience, and we really believe, that the lady must herself have shed real tears in the intensity of the feeling Mr. and Mrs. Kean were enthusiastically called before the curtain, and greeted with a storm of applause. To night these distinguished artistf appear in Tailourd's tragedy of "Ion," the part of Ion by Mrs. Kean. and that of Adrastus. by Mr Kean?two parts in which it is needless to say they excel. Theatkf..?The announcement that the popular and talented young actress, Miss Julia Dean, would appear at this theatre last evening as Julia, in the " Hunchback," drew together a very numerous and enthusiastic audience. Miss Dean has certainly improved since we last had the pleasure of seeing her perform, but she did not act last evening to her usual advantage, in consequence of the peiiod,of timo that has elapsed since she last appeared. She appeared to be nervous and diffident of her powers, but a short time will suffice to restore her self possession. Notwithstanding these drawbacks she sustained herself very creditably, and in a way that promises well for her future carcer. She hat, however, to underiro some severe training, and aunlr herself to deep study before she will reach that point of eminence in her profession that she aspires to. Mr Nealie, as Matter Walter, and Mr. Clarke, a* Kir Thorn a j Cliffore, performed their parti in their uiual good style.? Mill Uean will appear again thii evening in the lame character, and " Paul Pry" will form the after piece. To thoie who have teen Mr Hadaway as Haul Pry, it is unnecessary to say that he performs it in a manner highly creditable. Okeknwicii Theatre.?A very full house wasprcsent and witnessed tha representation of " Joan of Arc " last evening. Mr. Freer'* Beauvitla wan admirably sustained, and so was the character of Joau of Arc, by Mrs. Jones. The attractive bill* that are nightly put forward by this rising theatre, show the deep appreciation in which the enterprising management is held under Mr. Freer, by his numerous admirers and patrons .Miss Julia Drake a* Nancy Strap, and Mr. Chapman ax Christopher Strap, in the 'Cottage of Content." gave inSnite satisfaction last evening There is a splendid company at present engaged at this popular theatre, and the success which ha* attended the laudable efforts of the proprietor, Mr Freer, show the deep interest and high apprecia'ion set upon hi* able management. The Greenwich is a splendid sourco of attraction for evening recreation and the pr esent companv possess much talent. A new and splendid saloon has been fitted up in superior style. Castle Garde?*.?As the summer draws to a close the desire among our citizens seems to increase of enjoying as much as possible, the cool breezes and excellent music at this delightful resort. The view of the harbor, with the men-of-war lying at anchor, and the encampment at Governor's lslnncT is woith double the price of admission, even if there were no other attractive objects ; but in addition the splendid cosmoramir. views.'depictirg scenes in every part ol tl:e world, and the well prepared refreshment? A*light the senses of sight and taste. To-morrow look out lor sport in the afternoon. Waliu-t Street Theatre, Philadelphia.?Mr. Col. lins made his first appearance at this Theatre last evening, in the "Nervous Man" and "Teddy the Tilor." We have no doubt but that the Fhiladelphians will be as much pleased with him as the New Yorkors. This Theatre on its opening was crowded to it* utmost capacity, and the applause of the audience testified their gratification with Uie efforts of the manager. Mr. May wood has made a very decided hit at the Olympic in Montreal, in the character of Bailie Jarvie. Mnalcal intelligence. Free Concerts.?Our up town citizens will be glad to letrn that a very excellent opportunity will be given them of enioving a series of free concerts this fall, at the " (Jotharo,'' No 098 Bowery; n most excellent band of linger* ami musicians, with'an entirely new selection of music, will be in attendance every evening. Signor Kerranti, the great guitarist, and agent of Signor Sivori, has t.o?n for some days very sick at the Astor House in this city, but we are happy to say is now fully restored to health. Sporting Intelligence. To those who wish to enjoy an afternoon of fun, we recommend them to visit Castle Warden to-morrow, and see the performances under the direction of Mr. Sheridan. If they are carried out here the same as in Boston, they will be the means of collecting thousands of our citizens at every presentation. The entertainments are of strikingly original character, and will be conducted with the utmost decorum. Mr. Katon has completed his extraordinary task of walking his 1000 miles in 1000 hours, a milo each hour, at Caledonia Springs, an I it is, considering the ago of the nerformer, the most remarkable feat of the century ? The Mnntrral Timet gives the following account, which was probably unknown to the many who bot heavy odd* against the jierfonr.ance of his whIk.

It appears by the books that several " alarmi" were also given Tho mischievous and mean practice of creating ! a (also alarm of fire, is a custom which has been resorted to in too many instances, by persons who wish to harrass ao l annoy the fir?^ompanies, originating betimes by , rival companiea themselves, and always generating ill- , feeling. A false alarm of lire, raited by no matter who, | should be visited with the mest severe punishment, as we know of nothing so mean or cowardly as that of putting a body of men to unnecessary labor, for the gratification of a silly hoax The perpetrators in all such case* ought to be punished with the utmost rigor of the law.

The arms were pieced, the skirts were patched, according to tbe well known maxim that " a patch is better than a hole," and the elated Mr. Gordon looked upon the shreds and patches with unutterable contempt; and immediately " peeled off his toggery." He applied yesterday at the police office for advice in the premises, and, as yet, we do not find that any action has been had on the subject, a diffpienco of opinion arising on the law of the case, ai to u he tier or not it could be brought under the cognizance of the polico Thus tho ra>e rests at present. | Thk Weathkr.?Yesterday was extremely warm, and reminded us of some of the warmest days of the past month Nui?a!*c?.?'The filth and garbage that has been thrown opposite No 134 Kast Broadway, proved a very dnngerous nuisance yesterday.

Morris Canal went UP U Per cent, Harlem Norwich and Worcester \4'. Reading fell ofl' >4. At the'second board, Morris Canal went up another quarter, aad closed firm at tho advance. The^sales were small. The demand for Sterling Exchange this morning was rather active and the quotations closed at 8>i a 0 per cent premium. Tho demand for exchange has not been as active as it would have been had our importations come in the regular way ; but a very large portion of them go into bonrt, and where thoy are owned abroad, no returns will be at present made upon them. We have no doubt but that a very large per cent of tho importations of foreign manufactured goods during the next three months will be on foreign account. The office of the Morris Canal Company has been removed from over the State Dank, in Wall street, to Jer sey city, and the books of the company will be removed to-morrow fr?m the I'henix Banlt to the same place. This company originated in New Jersey, and the directory ware of its approaching dissolution, wisn to nave it ex' pire upon the spot where it received its existence. This company is in a rapid decline, and we know of no way to prevent its exploding. Its finances are in a deplorable condition, and it requires so much money to keep life in it, that it it bevond the reach of salvation. There a no one connected with its management who has any ,nterest in it further than to make all they can out of it, in the way of salaries, fcc. It will require at least three hundred and fifty thousand dollar* to prolong its existence, and that amount must be raised immediately to keep it from a sudden collapse. Seventy thousand dollars are required to pay off the deb* due to.some of the brokers in Wall street next month (Soptember), $176,000 to build or rebuild the inclined places, and $100,000 to purchase or build boat*. If they can raise this sum at once, this debt can be paid, and the canal can be put ia a condition to yield an income tufficieut to pay its ex. pence* and a (mail dividend on the stock. Thit will make the stock worth something, which is more than can be said of it now. If this amount is nut forthcoming immediately, the canal mutt inevitably fall into the hands of the bondholders, under the preaent mortgage, and the atock become entirely worthless, at it was some time since rendered by a aimilar operation. The principal holders of Morris Canal two months since have since sold out all their stock, at a heavy loss, having no confldencein its ultimate value, or the ability of the company to raise the loan, under the present depressed atatc of the money market The New Orleans money market of the Qlst inat waa very easy, and the amount of paper offering for discount waa ao limited, and the banks have auch abundant meant at their command, that they readily take every good piece of paper tendered.

It will b? ptmiNd that then hut been i falling off of mtwiI por o??t in United State*' iIim iliji July Wth, and that they are now nearer par than thejr bare been for a long time. Thi* hai been cau*ed by the fear* of a further depreciation in the market value of government tock by a further iatue. It ia anticipated that the gov ernment will be compelled to retort to a direct loan of a large amount. The treasury note* will anawer a very good purpose, but doubt* are entertained of the poislbility of getting more than ten million* into circulation. An issue of these note* to that amount will have a very favorable effect upon the m iney market*, and enable tha government, in the event of Congro** authorizing a direct loan, to raise money upon an issue of stock, muck easier and much cheaper than it could under existing circumatances. But a very imall amount of the ia*ue of Treaaury notes authorised hai as yet been put into circulation, and th money market* have not therefore realiied the relief an ticipated The*e issues have been put out at a nominal rate 01 interest, una mere ti very little aouoi nut mat the whole ten million* can, with judicious Management be put into circulation upon equally favorable term*' This will insure their circulation through the channel* of lommtrct, and add 10 much to the currency of the country. A meeting of the shareholder* in the St. Lawrence and Atlantio Railroad Company, was held at Montreal a few days sin*e, wnena report was presented from the Board of Directors. It appears that 1410 share* of the company'* stock havo been *ub*cribed for, conditionally on the work* being immediately commenced. The present position of the Company's subscription list is 3,964 sharas, held in Camda, 1,000 subscribed on account of future contracts for work on tho road, about 050 subscribed in EngUnd by ccripholder* there, and 1,983 held by (cripholder* in (Jreat Britain, givingatotal of 7,697 (hare*. Of thi* number?the Directors regard as available for the Immediate prosecution of the work, 3,904 shares held in Canada, 660 subscribed 11 England, 760 of those subscribed on aecount of future contract*, making a total of 6,364 shares, or ?368 200. The shares held by scripholders in England, the D1 rectors do not feel warranted in taking into account of their available mean*, inasmuch a* these partie* can relieve thsmsolve* of future liability by forfeiture of their first instalment. At tho last meeting of proprietors, the Director* stated, that on the result of the appeal to the public then uggested, being ascertained, they would be prepared to recommend, either the immediate winding up of the undertaking, or it* energetic prosecution ; and they say that it is now their duty, in laying the foregoing statement of affairs before the proprietors, to give it as their nnininn that ia nvn?/1iiint at upon the construction of a portion of the railroad, leaving it, however, to the proprietors to instruct them defi; nitively thereon. i On this point the Director* remark, that independently | of the English scripholders, they have 8mple means to construct from SO to 60 miles of the railroad ; that thia portion ol the road, would, in their opinion, be productive in itsel', and would enable the Directors to obtain sufficient means to complete the work to Sherbrooke, a point about 30 miles from the boundary line, and which, if once attained, the Directors feel sufficient confidence . in the now awakened feeling in Montreal, and the adI joining districts, to believe, that the additional amount j required to complete this great work, will be eventually ; subscribed. With reference to the expenditure upon the railroad, should the proprietors resolve to proceed, the Directors propose to commence the works at the St. Lawrence, and to complete the two sections to the Richelieu River, and thence to St. Hyacinth, as soon as possible. Immediately on the completion of the first, or both of these sections, the road should be opened to the public. In recommending the proprietors to resolve on commencingthe work, with a capital at present insufficient for its completion, the Directors have been, to a certain extent, guided in their decision, by the known fact, that of all the railroads now in successful operations in New England, not one corporation commenced, with their full capital subscribed, and in the case of the railroads now in progress of constructien from Portland, Boston, and INCW lurtl, IUO -flictwia UBTC IOBOUU W l/CUVTO, IUBI the proportion of capital subscribed ia much within tie aum which this corporation haa now at its diipoial.
