Tlie Important < from Mexico? Singular CUaln of tCvfiiti?ilHnla Anna Again ? Power. Although it wa* expected that Santa Anna would Bg-iin soon be at tlie head of the Mexican government, yet die news we published yesterday orln? m"na! arrval at Vera Cruz, and taking the lend in the revolutionary movement, created considerable ex iitement anion# ilie political and com mere .il ciicles in this city thronghont the day. btoc.;s in Wall street, the thermometer of men with smalt means, were alfected, and the public appear to be somewhat anxious to learn what will be die result of our peace mission to Mexico, now that Santa Anna is in power. It is p.ob ibly clear enough to our government; ard ,is we yesterday threw out the idea that the olFor of peace would be delivered by Coiniiio^orw Connor to Santa Anna, we will now i^ive a fciu^u'ar chain of facts, or events, to prove that the latter may b? the means of a speedy ponce. But it will be a3 well to bear in mind that Santa Anna has hitherto been rather a slippery diploma' ist. Now for a few facts: Wam 9*nta Anna was before in power in M x c i, : i :ro \V is n certain Mr. Morphy, the son of a i Irishman by a Spanish lady, who, from ratli-r an ob-cn e position, rose to the condition of financial a^<-nt to the govsrnment. He resided in the city of Mexico, and became very successful in finanentl speculations,and in the course ofa few years x> 'I' I ? haid<ome fortune, wiili which lie purchased an estate near London, to which he afrei ward* retired, and acted as Mexican Con- * enl i>? Luidon, from which oiiice lie was removed j by Karly in June last, Mr. Morphy suddenly arrived in tliisco intry from England, in the ! steamer H b Tnia, and immediately repaired to VV^iihing'Oa A'ter holding several intervii'.v* cvitti ih'? President, and certain members of the Cabinet, Mr. Morphy proceeded South, in company with a certain Si^nor Tainariz, who pUo suddenly >pruni?into existence in this country, and who was formerly a member of Santa Anna's Cabinet, and if we rtcolUct rightly, Secretary of the Trrf i -n y. S.gnor Tainariz stopped at Charleston, wlvro be charttred a steamer to take him to llavam, at nn "xpense of eight thousand dollars, while- Mr. M irphy proceeded to New Orleans, ! where immediately chartered a vessel to take 1 him to Vera Cruz lie was treat d with all re- | spect. by Commodore Connor, in consequence o'" a pasanort given him by the President of tho ' Uni> d States. and he landed at Vera Cruz without interruption. It svas asserted that Mr. Morphy \-'iu an a_-< rr fir som- Knglis-h bond-holder* n i l that he had g me to M- xico in that capacity. He pro! ibly was do'hed with powers as tho ag-nt uf -omo English stook companie-i, but to p.- or sec-ire inn interests 01 rus principals, i* piobubly but ilie ostensible object of his visit to M'-xirn. Tl\e teal c.tuse, we suspect, lies deeper under tin; stuf.iee, and of this ?i(>t?s rtrrins. S ) netinv* in June la*t, Alexander S>idell M ic- i kei.Z ", a brother of the Hon. John Slidell, was c i. <.d irotn his country residence, on the Hudson, to t ie "Sent of Government, where he received Rome instructions, and soon alter ."ailed fiotn Nor- i folk in the United States brig of war Truxton for Havana. There, it is said, he landed in full nnifo; m, and proceeded 10 the residence of Santa Anna, with whom he had several interviews. 1 The Trnxton proceeded to the Gulf, and Captain Mackenzie remained for some day* at Havana, during which a revenu ; cutter was plying otf and oa the harbor, and having frequent communis itions with General Campbell, the United States Consul at that port. Captain Mackenzie afterwards wont on boa-d this revenue Cutter and nailed for Brazos di Santiago, where he landed, and rodo acrcm the country to tho camp of frenertil Taylor. There he held an inievi >w w'itU the General, and so >n after in the cut'er, which in a few days reached New Orients, where he was announced to have arrived with important despatches for our government.? He at once repaired to Washington, and has since returned to his residence on the Hudson. According to the advices which we gave at j len-j'h in yesterday's paper, ,t appear? that San- 1 ta Anna left Havana on the 8th August, in the s'.eamer Arab, and th(Lt he arrived off Vera Cruz on the 16:h ; that he brought letters from Gen. Campbell, our Consul at Havana, at sight of which Commodore Conner permitted him to pass in- In Santa Anna's company were Signors Almonte, Itejon and Tamariz, the latter of whom, jt will be recollected, travelled with Mr. Morphy from Washington to Charleston. Santa Anna is i reported to have said to I'ommodore Connor that he desired peace, but that he would be constrained to go with the people. Sone ol the facts enu nera'ed above are sufficiently important in themselves to challenge attention ; o-t?"rs are comparatively unimportantwhen Taken singly and alone. But all taken in connection, go to prove at least the reasonable probability that Santa Anna's return was long foreseen, anil, indeed, calculated upon by our go- , vernment?that Mr. Morphy, who was a prime mover in a previous revolution in Mexico which placed Santa Anna in power, went to Vera Cm* with the countenance of our government, for the purpose of sou iding the garrison, and if possible make a diversion in lavor ol his old patron? that S gnor Tamariz had an understanding with our go ernmcnt as to the return of Santa Anna to Mexico, and its probable influence in terminating the war | that Alexander Mackenzie was sent to Havana to confer with Santa Anna?that our consul nt Havana had an understanding with Santa Anna, that he would, upon regaining power in his own country, favor the promotion of peace between M-xico and the United State*; and that this politic j General sees that Mexico can never hold out | ngain?t the United States; and we believe that in this opinion he is concurred with by both Reion and Almonte, notwithstanding that the latter left this country with tho most hostile feelings to this country. Theso conclusions wo do not positively draw, hot our readers would do well to bear in mind the facts wo have sta'ed. and watching 'he course of events, s ee whether or notour deductions are correct It i? a little curious at any rate, thst all thee foe's should dove-tail so nicely, and tint at tho moment our peace mission ought to reach Vein Cruz, Santa Anna makes his appearance otr that port, is permitted to land by Commodore Conner, wheels into the revolutionary line, and is a^ain bend of the Mexican government All this is a little curious at any rate, and we and every other per'on will therefore he anxious to receive further intelligence Wo arc all very desirous to learn how our peace mission is to be receit'ed, and whether or not S\nta Anna will really negotiate aud satisfy the M'-xic ?ns, by the nid of two millions ol dollars or thereabouts, that their honor is tranquiliz-jd . it is perhapi unnecessary to repeat that Santa Anna uj k vory slippery diplomat.

In fact, it is a private mutter, and we desire to keep entirely ch ar of it. We request our corres|>ondent* in future to leave this controversy to the decision - '1 II J L LIL' _l.ll. _ Irregularity or tub Mails.?Tlio frequent cjmplaints of the pres*, and of our citizen*, of the irregularity of the post office department in this and other cities, have at length reached the Postmaster General at Washington, and that worthy official has determined to correct the evil, ii possible. With this view, we are informed he has deputed William J. Brown, Esq., Second Assistant Postmaster General, to proceed on i a tour of inspection, visit the principal cities on 1 the sea board, and in the interior?especially New York, Philadelphia, Boston, and Albany? ascertain the causes of irr-gularity, and report the same to him, to be obviated for the future, if DOsnible. We are much gratified at this determination of Mr. Cave Johnson, as it exhibits a praiseworthy desire to relieve the community from the annoyances and embarrassments it h:is suffered lor a long time past. The selection of Mr. Brown, too, is judicious; for from what we hear of that Ktntleinan's talents and business acquirements, we are confident that the mission " ill be attended with the fullest and most perfect success. This gentleman will make a searching enquiry into the manner of conducting the aff.iirs of tha office* which he is commissioned to visit, and make such suggestions and alterations as he may deem requisite, in discharging from the service of the government both postmasters and clerks, which suggestions will be carried intoelle*t by the l'ostmas erGeneral immediately. We hope that no obstacle will be thrown in his way, and tha' every facility will be atlbrded him in fulfilling his mission, as the public at large is interested in the remit. Wo will vcntnro to offer a suggestion to Mr. Brown, in regard to the manner in which the affairs of the office in this ciiy is conducted that needs a correction. We tire satHaciorily informed that some of the clerks iu that establishment, for certain reason-, entertain ill will towards some particular newspapers in this city?the Herald is, perhaps, among them?and that those papers ! fail in reaching sub-cribers more frequently than | others against which no such pique is entertained. ; Now, if this be ihe ease, and we are assured of ! its truth, it certainly demands to be investigated. We are further informed that it is immaterial at what t me the latter papers are received at the post-office?whether it be ten minutps or half an hour alter the regular time for closing the mails? those papers invariably are forwarded to their I places of destination, while the others fail when deposited in proper season. Again?we suggest 1 that we receive more complaints from subscribers at the East of th non-receipt of the Herald in due season, than from all the other points com bitied. From this we are led to behove that there | is room for improvement or radical change in the ! persons employed in that partirulur branch of the New Yo'lc post-.iffice. If the clerks on the " east table" are remiss, they ought at once to be discharged. It has been urged by the friends of Mr. Morri, and of the Postmaster General,* that chore is a deficiency of clerks in many of the post offices which precludes the prompt and efficient transaction of busmess, but that the evil cannot be remeilii'il PYfpnt hv P*rinirrASA- lifrniup th? have no means wherewith to pay for additional assistance, except the commissions accruing in their respective offices, which, under the new postage law, are not sufficient to pay a greater number than is at present employed. These commissions are fixed by act of Congress at a certain sum, to include all the expenses of each office, including rent, salaries of the Postmasters and their clerks?in fact, every thing. Neither the | Postmaster in New York, nor the Postmaster I General in Washington, has power, by law, to apply any o'her fund to that object. We are satisfied that there is a good deal of truth in this, and that a sudden and great acctt mula'ion of business will al<vays produce an un- , avoidable increase of mis'akes and confusion, but wo were the strongest advocate for the cheap postage sy-tem ; we were willing to suffer, and expected to be incommoded by the change, and this wo Wi'.e willing to submit to for the ntihlic good, until, in course of time, the defects with j remedied. But we cannot concede, in the faoe j of what we have above suggested, that the gla- . ring irregularities arid wilful neglect that lias characterized the business of the post office in this city, particulaily since the beginning of the session of the State Convention, can be attributed to these causes. Wo are convinced that something is rad cally wrong tli* re, which ought to be remedied speedily. We trust Mr Brown will institute a rigid scrutiny into this office. Telegraph from Washington to New Or- j leans ?We und rstand that D. Bravo, Esq., proprieior of the commercial news roems in New ' Orleans, and well known as one ?of the most enterprising men of the present age, is now in this city endeavoring to make arrangements to have the magnetic telegraph extended from Washington, D. C., to the city of New Orleans. The project will undoubtedly succeed, because ' Mr. Biavo never undertook any thing yet Ciat ho did not perfect. It is desirable on many accounts that we should have a magnetic communication with our h brethren in the Crescent City?particularly so ! ainott tin* a nnovalinn a( Ti?yu Pir tl\a cir?r% iai_ tion ot that territory, we became poss ss?'d of an : immense cotton-growing region, if not superior, : at all events cqu <1, to the rest of our Southern j States in producing that great staple. Hence the importance oi informing our Southern neighbors of the state of the foreign markets immediately on the arrival of every steamship from the old world. We have no doubt that the establishment of a magnetic communication between New York and New Orleans would be a highly profitable I undertaking, and one which, under the guidance : of Mr. Bravo, would offer the belt opportunity for 1 investment that we know of. : OrE.ning or hik Ca mtaion - We perceive that a call has been published lor a public meeting of the hard fisted and huged pawed democracy of tire city, this evening, at Tammany llall, to con- j gratul te eich other, and their brethren throughout the Un'orr, on the triumph of their measures in the last Congress This may bo regarded as the first shot in the | fall campaign.

There is no doubt that Commodore Conner is a brave and experienced officer, but the attack on Alvarado should not have been unsuccessful. The Commodore should certainly have ascertained before hand whether the assault was practicabl and, if not, he should not have attempted it. Bat having once made the attack, he should have carried the town at all hazards. It there were UilUuiilties, ttiey snouiu nave ueen a^ceruuneu iuiu means taken to avoid them. Tiiis is the second unsuccessful attack made by our navy since the commencement of the war. Tarnpico whs attempted before, and abandoned We trust that the vessels of light draught now pro" ceeding to join the squadron, will be found sufficient 'o ensure the success of the next attack that will be made on any of the Mexican towns. We repeat, we have every confidence in the bravery of Commodore Connor, but the failure of two successive attacks on towns which have very inconsiderable defences, proves that there is some fault somewhere. Commodore Connor has now a force under h:s command, sufficient in numbers, discipline, and courage, to carry out any enterprise, however daring. Ho commands at present the largest American squadron that has ever been uflaat since the I demonstration before Algiers in 1815. It consists of the following vessels :?

The remainder of the squadron are with the Commodoie at Anton Lisardo, twelve miles south of Vera Cruz. This place is selected as being more healthy than the immediate vicinity ol'Vera Cruz. Much has been expected from tho squadron, as it is known that it is capable of any thing that can be effected by any fleet in the world. We trust they may have an opportunity of showing their ealibre if the war continues. Our navy has been since the lus war the most popular arm of the service. The army has already covered itself with glory on two well contested battle fields. Should the war continue, our n >vy should have an opportunity to distinguish itself. When at the commencement of the war, our squadron was not by any means so strong as at present, we expressed ourselves confident of the success ol an attack on San Juan D'Ulloa. Now that it is stronger in every way, we are still more confident of the sue doubt, had some good reason Cor acting as hedid in abandoning the attack, of Alvarado. We would not be understood as throwing a single suspicion on his bravery or energy.

We trust, however, that the matter m*y bo satisfactorily explained. Theatricals, die.
