The Foreign Ncwi-ltt Commercial and Political Character. "i^be Cambria brings us intelligence from Europe, which in a commercial |k>oint of view is more nportant and enooungin|' than we have received,'"or many months. Everything connected with was in a highly satisfactory condition, and the elements of prosperity were never more healthy w'<*n at present exhibited. There 1 appears to be ft very active demaxid in Great | Britain for all our staple agricultural products at j improving prices, and there ia every ev idence of a j demand from the other .side for those articles cal- j culated to advance priced very much in this ! country. It was our imprfi??ion previduts to the ! arrival of the s'eamer, that her advices would, so far as commerco was concerned, be very favor- j able, but they fairly exceed our most sanguine expectations. The Bank of England had reduced the rate of interest to three per cent, and the re 1 was any quantity of capital offering for employ I ment in commercial pursuits. The advance in quotations for cotton, with the | extensive demand from the trade, had been pro- I duced by accounts from this side, in relation to the deficient yield of the old crop, and the pros- j pect of a deficiency in the new. The movement : was, therefore, baaed upon proper data, and was the more likely to be permanent. If a specula- j tion in this staple springs up in Liverpool or in this country, it will be carried to a very great ex- j tent. Two short crops of this staple in succession, is something very unusual, and cannot but | be attended with an improvement in prices. I One or two deficient crops now, would be felt more severely by tho manufacturing classes than in previous years, as the consumption has reached an amount requiring an increase in : the yield of several hundred thousand bales per ! annum. Prices, in all probability, will experience a very great revolution under the existing appearance ot things, in relation to the crop now in the ground. We, however, expect to see, in case a very extensive speculation be produced, the usual explosions and bankruptcies grow out I of the movement; but as it is likely to commence | so c?rly in the season, we indulge in the hope that ? the planters will be more benefited this time thaa ( they have been in a majority of those of a similar . character. An advance has already been realized here in i breaJjtails, and it is highly probable that a spe- f culativo movement will take place in articles j coming under that head. We trust those interest- j cd will look back and reflect a little upon the re- ^ suit of the speculation in flour, &c , hist fall. Se- ' veral of our oldest, largest, and wealthiest houses 1 were made bankrupt by their immense losses, growing out of the inflation in prices und?r th? ! excitement of that period. We have before us J every thing calculated to ensure a long period of * commercial prosperity, if we content ourselves j with progressing at a moderate rate ; but if we j go ahead recklessly, there will be a sudden termi- i. nation to all our bright prospects, and before we I aro aware of it, we will find ourselves in the midst ' of embarrassment, and upon the verge of utter j rain. The political intelligence from Europe does n<#t amount to much. There had been some deb ite in Parliament in relation to the war between the United States and Mexico, during which Lord Palmerston stated that the British government had renewed the offer of mediation to the two parties engaged in hostilities, previously made by Lord Aberdeen. We should infer from this, that the first offer had not been accepted by either of the two governments interested, ims is aoout tue , gist of the political news. The Policy of Santa Anna?Will there he I Peace 7?Nous Verrom. The manifesto of Santa Anna, dated the 16 h | August, has been received in the United States, | and so far as we have been able to learn, its na- j tura and contents verify the anticipations which j we have already expressed as to the prospect of a 1 speedy termination of hostilities between the two countries. We judge of the character of this important state paper, not merely from the sy- j nopsis given of it in the Union, but from the cor- j roborating testimony of those who have had the opportunity of seeing it. We therefore speak ad- j visedly on the subject. Two characteristics of this paper merit particular notice. It will be perceived that it bears date the very day of Santa Anna's landing at Vera j Cruz. Among the grounds upon which it de- i nouncMS the conduct and administration of Pare- 1 des, is that for the purpose of accomplishing sinis- i ter designs of his own, he brought about the war ' with the United States. In Santa Anna's judg- J ment, this war owes its origin to Mexican policy, ' and that not a national, but an individual, or factious po'.icy. The war is then not national in its I inception or motives. The United States is not the I iuwiosb, uiifirovoncu aggressor wmcri h ims uere- | tofore been styled Iron# one end of Mexic? to the other. The other feature in this paper, to which 1 allusion has been made, is not only a corollary ' from the proceeding*, but possesses at this time, | and under all the circumstances, an intrinsic im- I portance. There i? no vituperation and abuse of the United States, such as for years we have seen to abound in Mexican state documents. The effect of the manifesto is calculated, and we may fairly infer, were designed, rather to allay than to foment a hostile feeling between the two nations. The only plausible reason which can be assigned for this extraordinary change in the feeling of the Mexican rulers, is that it springs from a desire to bring the war to a ciose. And this, disposition, met as it is by a corresponding I one on the part of our Executive, leaves little doubt, strengthened as it must be by every con- ' siJeratiou ol patriotism, and wc may, perhaps, be permitted to add, the strongest motives ol personal interest on both sides, lead us irresistibly to the conclusion, that Mr. Pwlk, in his next message to Congress, will have it in his power to communicate the immediate prospect if not actual restoration of peace. Arrival of toe Vic roau.?This fine packet ship, Capt. Morgan, arrived yesterday morning, in tha remarkably short passage of turanty-aight day? from London Sht brings t full complement of c*hin ptM*Bf*r?. Among tha* we nouoa the n?m* of !Ub?rt Owen, the lMtiuopi*t Bxtondr* Conflngratlon?*lblo*s in Hnim At about half past four o'clock, yesterday morn, ing, the building* between Prince ?treet and Houston, on Broadway, and known as Niblo's Garden, were discovered to be on fire by the police. The I fire was discovered in the theatre, near Broadway, ! in which the Ravels usually performed, and which was in a comparatively short time reduced to ashes. The fire then extended to the relreshmont saloon, where the concerts a la Muiurd were usually performed, and which soon shared the fate ot the other building. Thence the tira attacked the two large dwelling houses on Broadway, and levelled them with the ground, not bow- ! ever before all the furunure was r> moved, and conveyed to the house of Mr. John Niblo, .No. 413 Houston street. The hou?e No. 602 Broad- j way \va? next destroyed. Tbi* wai occupied by ; Dr. J. T. S. Smith, a Botauic Pnysician s by G. Derrick, Saddle and Harness Maker; by Mr. i Murphy, a Carver and Gilder, and by McCord, i a Boot Maker. Dr. Smith's loss is 91500? insured for the full amount. Mr. Derrick's loss about I $1200, partly insured. Mr. Murphy's loss about | $2000, no insurance; and Mr. MoCord succeeded ! in saving all his stock. The building in the rear 1 and on Crosby street next suffered. The upper part was used by Captain McArdle, as the armory i of the City Guards, and the lower part as a Club room. All the property and furniture was removed, and the building slightly damaged. This, I we believe, comprises all the buildings destroyed and injured. At the corner on Prince street, was a drug store, and adjoining this was the store recently occupied by Grant Thorburn, but from which he had removed a little while before, and the place was unoccupied and being repaired. All down. Loss ; unknown. Those who are familiar with the place are aware of the great quantity of wood and frame ! work that was there crowded into a comparatively limited space, and will readily comprehend why I the conflagration was so rapid. It was at first ! apprehended that Mr. Niblo's dwelling-house would fall a prey before any thing could be saved i from it. By great exertions on the part of the ; fiie men, and the prompt assistance of the 14th ward police, under the control of Captain Kissner and Assistant Captain Scatliff, a considerable paction of the contents was rescued. The new club house was saved, having re: ceived but little injury. The entire bleck, occupied by the saloon, theatre, gardens, &c., was swept over by the flames, nnd nothing remains but charred timbers, drjed-up fountains, and shrivelled shrubberies a /id trees The gicound on which the establishment ptood belongs *ro the Van Rensselaer estate, as al80 did the large d welling houses on Broadway-_t'ae re-t 0"f the bu lldings belonged to Mr. Nibl^ p lg principal lease, however, had run out >bout g ago*"and he has leased ygar to year since that; time The absence of ^ large engines was:.senously loIt, (none ot them belonging to the dist ri ct,) and it is suppo tjjj8 building might have been saved with thf>ir U9e No 42 bro nj'ht up about hal ^ *,a9t gix o'clock, but it was too late. 1 he heat 0f t]ie iire> on pfince street, wi i# so great, at r>ne tirne> ag (Q endanger the m moin^s on in-j opposite side, but the continual pi ?y ot the e /igines prevented their taking fire. Ihe Montgomery House, an hotel owned by R |r. Wi^iiain Green, in P ince street, was saved 1 >y tho, greatest exertion. Mr. Green was on the roof holding a small croton ho3e pipe, when beronvvng exhausted lroin fatigue and heat, he fell, and wdoM Vive perished, only a gallant fireman was present, who caught him in his arms and wrapped a blanket around him. The armory of the Montgomery Guards was in this hotel and was saved, but we are sorry to hear that Mr. Green's loss exceeds five hundred dollars. From what we have learned?and we took particular pains to inquire?there can be no doubt that the conflagration win the work of some vile incendiary. When the alarm was given, some persons rushed into the theatre, among whom was the bar-keeper of the establishment, who immediately perceived the theatre to be on fire in five or six different placet, np stair*, down stairs, and even in the basement. There were no fireworks the evening previous; and Mr Longwood, the night keeper, went around the whole establishment, as usual, after the performances were over, extinguished the gas, and eaw every thing right. The loss by this cntastrojihe falls principally on Mr. Niblo'and ihe llavel Family.? The former estimates his at 850,000?h? is insured for S'10,000. Gabriel llavel informed us at 12 o'clock yesterday, that the whole of the costly wardrobe and property belonging to the llavel family (himself included) is destroyed, and the His.-! w-iu noi lau lar snort oi jysxMHJU?none of which is covered by insurance. This 19 a severe blow to these talented performers. They losi a few years ago their whofc wardrobe by the explosion of a steamboat boiloron the Mississippi river, and barely escaped with their lives. Mr. Iinckett, we are informed, is likewise a heavy loser? he played the part of Faistnff a few evenings since at the theatre, and was to have appeared soon again in the same character, and left his wardrobe there. Miss Taylor, Mr. Chippendale and the various supernumeraries and actors belonging to tjhe theatre are also heavy losers. We ara informed that soon after the arrival of the ttremen, a disgraceful scene took place. It is charged that many of thein neglect-d their duty and made a descent to the wine cellar, and indulged in the viands that were there s cored, and that the police followed their example^ between whom and the firemen a row took place concerning the liquor. We can hardly credit this report, and the firemen owe it to themselves to exculpate themselves from the churge. We understand that Mr. Chippendale, the acting manager of the theatre, has engaged Palmo's Opera House in Chamber street, for tlve nights, where all the 'Company that belonged to Niblo's will appear. Mork Trouble About thb Mails.?We hear it rumored on good authority, that the railroad com* panies intend to discontinue the carrying of the mails on their lines after the firft of October. The true ground of diiliculty doubtless is, that Cave Johnson is unwilling to pay a fair price for their transportation. Some time ago we learned that there had been a difference as to the hours of leaving the cities, the rate of travelling, and the pay for the service. At the same time we heard that the companies had tffered the free use of their road?, without any charge, to the government, for this purpose, to start at any hour, and to run at any speed they pleased. This was certainly a moat liberal offer, and we have never known why it was not accepted. At all events it seems a civil war has broken out between Cave John eon ana ine railroad companies, in consequence of which another general derangement ot mnil carriage may be expected, for the amusement of the public?" about these days."

Such an establishment would be a great acquisition to the uptown citizens, and we hope the design may be promptly carried out. Of this, however, there is little duubt, as ' the men engnged in it are just of the tight sort to achieve such an undertaking.
