NEW YORK HERALD.] Vnrii, Monday, November 4, 1846. 1 in Nm, (itini Kurope. The steamship Britannia probably left Liverpool on the 20th ult, instead of the 19th, the latter coming on Monday. She will probably arrive to-morrow or next day, and we again caution the public against the speculators who have, we are told, arranged another express, in anticipation of the telegraph being again out of order?that is, cut. The safest way is lor no holder of llonr, &e., to j sell until he sees the Extra Herald. Tilt Cotton Crop of tbe ( illicit Stairs?Tlie I'lmlur tlon anil Consumption. There is at present every indication of an extensive speculative movement in cotton, both in j this country and infEttrope. Prices have already reached a very high point, and it becomes a inat- ' ter of much importance to all classes, whether ! they will continue to advance, whether they have reached their maximum, or whether there is any probability of any reduction from the present standard The settlement of these points would be n very desirable thing; but there are so many conflicting accounts, that it is impossible to reach any satisfactory result. In relation to the growing crop, the s 'ason has advanced sutficiently to settle the fact that the yield will be several hundred thousand bales below the average of the last three years, and prices lor th'1 raw material, therefore, depend solely upon the extent of the demand for consumption. In anticipation of a short supply, speculators will of course monopolise as much as possible, and may tor a time have a very great intluenee upon prices ; such an inlluoriee, of itself, cannot but be temporary, and will soon run itself out; hut this, m rnnnrriimi wifli n t'nr rirf n n I a in ??ii i n n tion, beyond the supply, must have a tendency to inHate piices very rapidly, and to sustain any inflation wliicb may be produced. In relation to the supply of the raw material, it becomes necessary to examine all the sources from which receipts can be expected, for the purpose of settling upon some estimate of supply, in comparison with the probable consumption. We have received many communications from anonymous writers, estimating the demand and supply ; but as there is such an immense interest at stake regarding this staple, and as these communications come from parties interested in favor of, and against high prices, we have made it a rule to refuse giving place to any of them. The two great parties in speculation, use every effort to give currency to their own views; the shortorop operators, and the long crop operators, appear equally sanguine of the strength of their position, and it is very dillicult to get at a correct result, amidst the movements of these rival interests. Very great allowances should be made for reports emanating from any quarter, and if speculators abroad would be morecareful iu crediting statements, even from private correspondents 011 this side, there would not be so many explosions among this class of operators, and the business would not be subject to those ruinous fluctuations, which have ever characterized it. We do not feel disposed .at present to hazard ;ii y opinion in relation to the supply of the raw material in this country. There is very little doubt but that the yield will be less than that of the last crop, but how much less no human being can tell. The mania lor putting forth estimates, long before the plant has matured, has done a vast deal of injury, and lead many into speculations which they would otherwise have avoided. It is gratifying, however, to see, even at this late day, that all estimates are looked upon with suspicion, and speculators in Europe place very little reliance upon them. Miu-h nrifipa fnr pnffiin lirimr nilt evftiv lmle in the hands of producers. In times of scarcity, the picking is very thorough, and that which would in other season be hardly worth collecting, is carefully gathered and sent to market. In this way the supply proves td*be much larger than the condition of the growing crop would warrant us in believing. Every one engaged in tlio trade must recollect the " storm cotton" which was so plenty in the market about three years since, and we have no doubt there will be something similar among the receipts of this crop While high prices bring out everything in the shape of cotton, they have a tendency to check consumption, which goes a great way towards ffsetting tho effect of a short crop. Our accounts from England of the 4th of October, state that the weekly t consumption of American cotton for tke two months previous to that time, had been about one thousand bales less than it had been previous to that time, and that the manufacturers were using more ijurat than they were in the habit of doing. Tke manufacturers were producing thinner and lighter goods, ami were in every way more economical in the use of the raw material. We have no doubt the consumption throughout Great Brifain, will 1 >#? in ntrirr !???? t)ii? trim r than last. There are other things tending to a reduction of the consumption ot cotton in Europe, besides high prices for the raw material, and that is the high prices for breadstuffs and provisions. This will require an advance in the price of labor, to place the consuming classes upon a level with their past condition, or a reduction in the time of labor. A great decrease in the home consumption of British manufactures, will be the result ol the present state of things, which, in connection with the abundant supply ol fabrics already in ail the foreign markets, must have a tendency to restrict the manufacture ot cotton goods this year, very materially. In view of all these facts, we come to the conclusion that there are cnnses operating against the consumption of cotton, which will tend to moderate prices and prevent speculation from running riot. The supply of the raw material is likely to ho fully equal to the demand for consumption, even in the event ol our crop proving to be much 1 less than that of last year. By referring to our \ last tiles of English papers, we notice consider- j able stress placed upon the large supply of hurat cotmn in warehouses in India. It is stated 1 by some, that nearly three entire crops have accumulated there, in consequence of the former low price of the American cotton, and its superior cleanliness?by some, the amount is stated at 600,000 bales, and by others larger figures, running up to 1,000,000 bales. Reference is also made to cargoes, expected in England, from advices which went forward three months ago? I [IIS Will IlrtYC ? llimciini CIIUUI Oil UIO SKX'K in Liverpool, and consequently on prices. Another Western Convention.?At an adloiirned meeting of the Chamber ol Commerce of the City of St. Louis, held on the thirteenth day of October last, a series of resolutions were adopted cordially approving of " the holding of a convention, to consider the powers and duties of the general government to assist, protect, and advance the inland commerce of the country, by the removal of dangerous obstructions from the Mississippi, Ohio, Missouri, and other rivers and highways of trade, and for the improvement of harbors thereon and upon the shores of the northern lakes," and recommending that city as the j most suitable place, on account of its easy access ; to all persons residing in the sections most imme. diately interested, and the 10th of May, 1847, as the best time, because the commerce of tiro lakes *n?l rivers is most active then, for holding the convention, and also inviting delegates from the south and south west, north and middle States to attend. We question very much whether any good can be attained by a convention of this kind, and are disposed to believe that if it be held, it will l>e a second edition ol the Memphis convention Boston Steamship* anp Matt. Faiu'res ?It is well known, that from some cause or oilier, the Boston steamships have been obliged to leave this country, on two or three occasions, without the mails from the South and from the city of Maw York, causing great inconvenience, and incalculable derangement of mercantile business throughout the whole country, as well as in Kngland. The importance of having the mails leave punctually, may be inferred from the fact that each contains about two hundred bushels ol papers and letters, relating to the commercial business of the two greatest nations in the world. The -aine thing was very near occurring again on Saturday last. The steamer Oregon, with the mail on board, came in contact with a bark, near llcllgate, by which she sustained so much injury as to disable her from proceeding on her trip. When intelligence of the accident reached this city, it created, as might be expected, a feeling of disappointment among our merchants, and threw a gloom over the whole city. Luckily, however, for our merchants, both in New York and in the South, the indefatiirahle Postmaster of Boston, Mr. Greene, was in town, who with cotmnentiuble spirit, set to work, assisted by Geo. Law, E-q , the enterprising owner of the Oregon, to obviate the difficulty, by despatching the mail by other means. Their first step was to send a communication by telegraph to Boston, informing the agents of the Caledonia of the accident, and requesting them to detain that vessel lor a short time after her appointed hour of sailing, as he was about to despatch the mails in some way. They then waited on the superintendent of the Long Island Railroad, who placed a locomotive at their disposal, and at twelve o'clock on that night the whole of the large mail had been taken from the Oregon, and was on its wuy to Boston. The whole country is under obligations to Messrs. Green and Law for their desire to serve the merchants in this emergency, and for the admirable manner in which they successfully carried out their arrangements. This is the third time, we lielieve, that accidents have occurred to the mail for the Boston steam ships, and it proves conclusively the impropriety of having Boston the depot, when such important consequenaes arc at siake. were it not tor ivir. Law, anil that Mr. Green was fortunately in New York at the time of the accident, the mail would undoubtedly have been left behind, and irreparable injury done to the meicantile community, from New York to New Orleans. We have the consoling reflection, however, that in a short time we will bo comparatively independent of Huston. When the new American line of steam ships, as well as the new Cunard line get into operation, we will have rapid communication with England, and a failure in the mail to reach Boston will not be attendi d with such disastrous consequences as have tak.'n place in two or three instances, and which were very near occurring again on Saturday last.? Hostou may be u great place, and may contain some smart men; but in commercial importance, it never can or will be equal to New York. We must say, however, that lioston is stupendous in railroads. Another Steamboat Accident on the Sound? The Rhode Island Ashore?The Oregon.?The steamboat Rhode Island, Captain Manchester, was driven usbore on Huntington Beacli, Long Island, in the storm yesterday, about 12 o'clock, while on her passage to New York with the eastern mail. She lays about 80 rods from the shore, and 45 miles from New York, with a heavy sea running and breaking over her. It being too rough to launch a boat, a letter was placed in u bottle and the bottle tied to a barrel, which was thrown overboard and drifted on the beacli, and thus a communication was had with those on board the unfortunate steamer. The letter was directed to the President of the Company, requesting the aid of a steamboat to be sent to their relief immediately. We learn that no lives were lost. The passengers must have been in a very unpleasant situation last night. We understand that a steamboat was despatched forthwith to the assistance of the Rhode Island The Oregon, which met with an accident on Saturday, will be immediately repaired, and be ready to again take her place in tho line to-morrow. The passengers were sent to Boston in the Narraganset. Theatrical*. Tare Theatre.?Mr. Collins was warmly greeted on Saturday evening, and his reception proved him.to bo a great favorite with the New York public. This evening he will appear as Captain O'Rourke in the comedy of the "Soldier of Fortune,"and as Terence O'Grady in the new farco of the " Irish Post" Tho former play has not been before produced in this country, though it was brought out in London with great success. Mr. Collins. will during tho evening sing several of his popular Irish songs, which are always received with such hearty applause. Mrs. Hunt will appear in the first piece as the Puke of Anjou, and we anticipate inuch pleasure from her |>erfonrianco of the character. The evening's entertainment will conclude with the farce of " Lend me Five Shillings." On the whole, this is one of the most attractive hills of the season. Bowirt Theatrk.?There will probably be a crowd, ed house collected this evening, to greet Mrs. Coleman l'o)>e on her first public appearance on the American stage. This lady has attained a high rank as a tragic actress in F.urope, and, indeed, in Liverpool critical audiences pronunced her as unsurpassed in her profession. The character in which she will appear, is that of Margaret Klmore in " Love's Sacrifice," a part well adapted to call into pin) all the variety of her dramatic powers Mr. l)e Car, well known among us as a melo-diamntic and pantomimic actor of much merit, will also make bis first appearance after a long ahscuce from the Bowery boards in the character ot Strappado, in the drama of the " Dumb Gill of Genoa." Tho Misses Yallee appear in one of their favorite dances. Bowrm Circus.?Anew candidate for public favor is tliii evening to commence nn engagement at (hit popular place of amusement, Mr. W. II. Kemp, and if he in any wey fulAl the expectation! which are railed on the atrength of his Ktiropean reputation, he will prove a great card for the management. Amongst others, he will exhibit the astonishing lent of running on an empty cask, going on it up and down an inclined plane, down a flight of stairs. Sic. The Italian clown Carlo is with drawn the present week, he being actively engaged in the preparation for a grand new pantomime, in which he ami his talented children will sustain the principal characters. I.evi North, the equestrian, will also appear this evening Tbo performances at the Circus aro of a high order, replete with novelty and variety, which heretofora have nightly tilled the house. hr* tsioup & Wabino's mrrsaukhia.?The collection ol living animals in this establishment is probably the most complete that ever has been exhibited in this city and will repay a visit from the lover of natural history, The place is admirably arrangeJ, and its convenient situation gives it great advantages seldom possessed by an establishment ol the kind. Mr. Pierce, the lion tamoi, is a Ana example of the power that man possesses over even the wildest of the brute creation. Am h Strfft Tur atei:, Philadelphia.?Mr. Burton, the manager, has kindly oflered the proceeds of this evening's performance for the benefit of the Franklin Library- Company, and a strong bill is ofl'eied for the occasion The operatic drama of "Hob Hoy," and the American drama ot the "Siege of Monterey " will both be pro ?"?)

Mr. and Mrs hrcujn, Mr. Krarerand P. Meyer will sustain the prineij al parts After which the farce of'"A man without a head," will he performed. Mown & Co.'s Ciaci-s ?The talented corpa of e^ucs triana forming this establishment, still continue their tour, though approaching near home. They play the coming week in some of the principal towns of New Jersey. On the 6th inst. our Trenton friends will have an opportunity of seeing them, The 1 level family are expected to pley et Pittsburgh some time during the present month, thejr will prohahly also atop at Cincinnati, St. I.ouia and Louisville; previous to their departure for New Orleans. 1'ersonal Intelligence. Hon. Caleb Cashing arrived at ,Buflalo on Friday last, from Detroit. The Rev. J. O. Choulcs, formerly of this city, also arrived at Buffalo, from Detroit, on the aame day, afid was to preach yesterday in the Washington etrcet Baptist church of that city, i Hon Thomas Corwin was at Cincinnati on the 56th ult. It la said that he had >1000 stolen from him recentI ly, while stopping at the I'earl street house in that city. I ???M | The K lection In Hew Yerk-Tlu OMM?ln I mikI the Questions. The elections in this State will take place tomorrow. The polls will open at sunrise anil close at sunset. The contest will he a highly important one in a dozen points of view. We have been at some pains to make up the following list of candidates to be voted for throughout the Stale. The names have been collected 1 from the most authentic sources, and the list is probably as correct as any list of the kind can be made. It will be seen that we aro to vote for a Governor,a Lieut. Governor, two Canal Commissioners, thirty-four members to Congress, eight members , to the State Senate, and, it is almost impossible to , tell how many, members to the Assembly. There are all Slate candidates.* In addition, the voters in this city are to elect a Sheriff, a County Clerk, ! and a Coroner. And, besides, we are to vote "yen" or "nay" to a new constitution for the State, and negro suffrage, and then return to the city and vote for or against a new city charter. It is lrghly necessary, with all these candidates and questions in view, that every voter should devote the who'e of this day to study over the list ol names; to careiuuy reau over me new constitution lor the State, and the charter for 1 the city; and to reflect upon the consequences | that would arise from negro suffrage. Alter this is done, the voter should retire early to bed in order to awake to-morrow morning to the import- I ance that his single vote may have upon the destiny of this city and this State. Annexed are the candidates. They number enough to form an army sufficiently powerful to storm Saltillo or take Tampico. What a pity it 's that the government cannot draft them for that purpose!

Leofolu De Mevsb.?The musical festival which this artist has originated for the benefit ot the German Be lievolent Society of this city, will take place at the Ta. bernacle to morrow evening, and in'addition to the attraction of bis own wonderful performances upon the piano, he has secured the aid of other musical talent of the highest order. Mrs. Edward Loder, Fraulein Korsinsky, M'lle. Rachel, Mr. Philip Mayer, and Herr Hecht, all vocalists

of the first rank, and favorites of the New York public, are engaged. Mr. George Loder, with his effec tivo orchestra, will also assist. Leopold De Meyer will perforin bis celebrated Iniprovisatores on Russian Airs, a grand fantasia on the Elisire d'Amore, and the Carnival of Venice. The Grand March Triumphale D'lslay, and the March Marocaine, will be performed tiy the full orchestra. Few opportunities like this aro offered of gratifying the senses, and at the same time to do a deed of charity ; and we trust that the benevolent design of tho lion pianist will be rewarded by the presence of a crowded auditory. Hexri Him.?This distinguished artist has, in a most creditable manner, postponod the giving of his second coucert, se as not to interfere with that given at the Tabernacle to-morrow. His next performance will take place at the Tabernacle on Thursday evening. The Alhamra.?Seldom have our up-town citizens had such an opportunity of witnessing pleasing and varied entertainments as at this establishment, and never, wo are sure, at so low a price. To-night there will be i music, vocal and instrumental ; displays of ventriloquism by Mr. Wyman, the distinguished imitator ; feats of magic by Miss Wyman, who may well be called the fair enchantress; an exhibition of the Italian Fantoccini, to see which, of themselves, are worth double tho price of admission ; und a variety of pleasing dances by the pretty Miss Jcssclyne. This is, we think, sufficient variety and attraction to draw as largo a number together as the saloon can accommodate. James Dorm.?We have seen some notice of the oxpected arrival of this musician. Formerly occupying the place of first horn to the Grand Duke of Baden, he is a performer of undoubted merit, and without doubt will meet with great success in this country, if his talent is as great as his reputation would lead us to expect In Italy, Germany and Europe, he has been highly successful. Though tho French Horn is the instrument upon which he excels, we are informed that he is also a gui umi vi giuni ivfuuiuuu. Sporting Intelligence. Union Cousse, L. I?Teottikc te.

Teottino in Philadelphia?To-morrow commences the fall sporting campaign ia our neighbor city, and from the extent of the field offered each day, we should judge there will be some fine trotting witnessed by those wno attend. The well known character of the majority of the horses advertised to trot, has induced a number of our citizens to prepare for a trip to Philadelphia, notwithstanding we have one ef the most exciting elections before us, which has occurred for years. We hope the weather may be favorable, so that all who go to the Hunting Park Course may be delighted. Police Intelligence jt Bold Hotel Thief?A Mr. E lliffe, of Philadelphia, at present staying at Lovejoy's Hotel corner of Beekman Street anil rirlnaw, wai rouueu vcnerui; \auuauy) or a pui (o containing betwoan $76 and $S0 in $6 gold piacea under the following circumstance!: It appear* Mr. Uifle occupied a room with a man who entered hia name on the Hotel Book aa "C. C. Jenka, of Jeuksville. Maaa," and on Mr. lliffe retiring to bed on Saturday night, ho allowed hia door to remain open for the purpose of admitting hia friend "Jenka" whenever he should feel disposed to come to bed About 7 o'clock the next morning (Sunday) ho was awoke by footsteps in his room, and on looking up saw a man in the room, and supposing him to be Mr. " Jenka," turned over in bed and was just dosing otf again, when the supposed Mr. " Jenka" was making " tracks" towards the Joor.)This appeared rather strange to Mr. lliffe, who thought, of course, that Mr. "Jenka" intended to go to bed?and on opening his eyes he observed this individual, but not the Mr " Jenks," passing ou' of the room, who remarked to Mr. Uifle, " we have had quite a rough night of it." Seeing he was a stranger, Mr. llifl'e at once became suspicious that something was wrong, consequently he jumped out of bed, examined hia pantaloons which hung on the bed post by his head, and discovered the loss of his purse and money as above stated, he rung the bell, immediately slipped on his pantaloons and coat, and running down stairs met the waiter coming un to ascertain the cause of alarm; in the meantime the thief escaped. Upon enquiry being made, it appeared that Mr " Jenks" left the hotel on Saturday afternoon. No arrest at present. Stealing a Tarpaulin.?A fellow called Jack Donnelly was arrestod last night by officer Street of the 4th ward, having in his possession a tarpaulin belonging to Mr. Wm.

Paihtinu.?The painting re |uusruiius in? wwuhir w? uwiuuiuu? uj?yu mu newiy dincovered (oil of America, has been for some time past in this city. and we are glad to lenrn that it haa been extensively visited by our citizens, evincing another proof of their growing taste for the fine arts. The time chosen by the artist in the portraying of the scene is when Columbus having planted the royal stundard of Spain, takes solemn possession of the land in the name of Ferdinand and Isabella. Near the great discoverer are seen Martin Alonzo Pinzon, Vincent Yanez, Lscoledo, the notary, Rodrigo Sanchez, the inspector of armament, and figures in a suppliant attitude, exhibiting well their ! shame for past abuse of him whom they now almost venerate. In front of the group is the figure of a boy, which for life like accuracy of portrayal lias probably never been surpassed by .the artist's pencil The attiI tude, coloring, living expression of the features, seem ' that like Pygmalion's statue a breath would kindle it into life. Though but a minor or a second rate feature I in the painting, it of itself displays the master hand of | genius. The figure of Columbus, whether as viewed in i its conception or portrayal, is beyond the reach of criti| cism. As we look upon it, we feel that the great discoi verer stands before us, mingling with his feelings of : gratified pride, the praise due to the hand which had > guided him across the ocean. We have not time to enj ter into the details of this admirable painting, which is ' alike a credit to the painter and to our country. Few can appreciate the toil, the perseverance, the mind necessary for the projection ana completion of a work of j this kind and of such magnitude. It is enough to say ; that Mr. Vanderlyn has overcome all obstacles,and given I to our country the possession of a painting valuable as a : historic description, and valuable as a master piece in I the art. We trust that it will not leave our city without the inspection of all who are interested in the od; vancement of fine arts in America, and who would join in giving a meed of praise to the artist who has done so i much towards it U. 8.

Common Council.?Both boards will meet this even ing. The Russ pavement report will be made by the .Finance Committee, bhould the report be favorable, we may predict that something will be done towards improving our streets, j Coukt ov General Sessions.?The November term of this Court commences this morning. The 'Weather.?Yesterday was a wet, cold and fjloomy soit of day; and the rain fell heavily, particuarly iu the early part of the day and last night. The wind blew at one timo rather heavily, and it is expected that the shipping must have suffered in some instances. " Gloomy November" has set in, this year, in character. Accident.?A man fell into the river at the Battery (name unknown) yesterday, and was taken to the station house in a state of exhaustion. His recovery, however, was calculated upon from the attention paid to him. Stray Horse and Waoon ?A stray horse and wagon , were lound in the streets near Grand street and Kssex. They were conveyed to the livery stables, corner of ; Brown aud Kssex The Urougeries.?The'poisonous qualities of the liquor sold in some of the' low groggeriea, produces a sort of derangement, which it is ascertained by physij clans, frequently causes settled madness?or loss of reaI son. The sale of poisonous drugs, such as are sold in | many of the lew groggeries, should be held as an in1 dictable offence, particularly when they are palmed off as genuine liquor. This is the great evil ' j by which so many victims to intemperance have been made?namely, not the quantity, but the deleterious quality of the rum that is sold in the vicinity of tbs > .wainte '* Woi.v rirool an/I in mnil Af *Ka Iaui I Kraggeries in thi* city. Physicans assure us that some ! oftlie so called liquors found there, have bee* analyzed i and blue stone, turpentine, and several poisonous ingre clients |havei been found to make up three-fourths o! the article. Surely, the law could take hold of so glaring i and so infamous an imposition?so dangerous and destructive a fraud. A glass of good and genuine liquor, it taken by those who moderately use an occasional glass of liquor, will not endanger life but the poison sold ir some of the low groggeries is a rebuke to the authorities The New Lkoti>res on Human Maunetisii.?During the last week Professor Rodgers delivered the first oi his h'ghly original aud able lectures on this subject tc large and intellectual audiences in different parts 01 the city, Yorkville, Harlem, and at the new and beautiful Lvceum on States Island. We hav? hitherto had no lecturer upon Animal Magnetism who has commanded the attention of so large a nun i I er of the respectable families et the city , or who seemi to have afforded so much rational satisfaction to in quiring minds. In fact, in his hands the subject acquirei a new and very superior aspect, and we doubt not thai his whole course will be heard with a degree of interesl and respect which has seldom been excited. It will be seen by the advertisement that he lectures this evening at the Lyceum in Broadway, and then at other parts ol the city in regular succession His lectures are usually accompanied with highly interesting experiments.

Hrdley, Es.| took the floor, and in aatyla ; vi wusi uiuceriy eloquence eug'ged lite attention ol the vast ! assemblage fur more than an hoar. He deprecated the course of the Richmond County Delegate! to the Congressional ' Contention, by which the righta ol our county had been frittered away?he Paid a juat tribute to the worth and respectability or Judge Winant, but declared unequivocally that he was not the choice of Richmond county for Congress?he said that a charge of fraud had beeu brought against Kings county, but we should remember that we ourselves had been the cause of losing o tr rights?the trouble had begun at home?we had chested ourselves?gentlemeu had sown the wiud sad they must reap the whirlwind. ; The questiou was not now whether this man or that man was our favorite, but whether we should throw away our votes, and lose the district. It is impossible to give a perfect sketch of Mr. H.'a remarks, but their effect upon the meeting was rlectric and they were most enthusiastically cheered , and responded to, notwithstanding the several attempts to in, terrupt them Mr. J F. Hutton rose to reply to Mr. Hedley. and was patiently listened to for several minutes, when " the questiou" being loudly called for, it was put by the chair, who declared , it impossible todecide it; whereupon a motion to divide the house was made and carried. Upon the division of the house, i the chair again declared it impos-ible to decide the question, and appointed r>r. Van Dyke and Mr. Hutton tellers to count the meeting.

The daily operations are to a very limited extent, and prices Hardly vary a fraction from day to day. Speculators are con. tented with small profits, and even make them out of each other in the street. The anticipation of difficulties growing out of the condition of our foreign affairs, and | the finances of the government is so general, that many ! are deterred from involving themselves in any stock ope. rations, but it is our impression that these anticipations j are without foundation, and that the fears of embarrass| merits of a financial character aro entirely groundless. Quotations for fancy stocks, of all descriptions, have ; reached a very low point, and there is a very wide margin fcr an advance. Should the Mexican war be brought I to a termination within the nextl nlnatv dava. there ' would immediately follow a Terjr extensive speculation I in all tlieie securities. A great many holder* are i anxiously waiting such a movement, and purchaae* late' ly have been made to come extent in anticipation of auch a result. Tbere i* very little riak taken in purchasing j Harlem or Norwich and Worcester at present p,ic*s; ! they both rule below their real value, and the slightest I improvement in the aspect of public affairs, generally, must have a very favorable influence upon prices for both of these securities. There are other fancies in the list, which would advance upon the strength of an improvement in one or two of the leading stocks, bat which have nothing within themselves likely to produce suck a desirable result. The time is rapidly approaching when holders of Harlem and Norwich will lookback to present prices with regret, and wonder why they had so little confidence in them as permanent investments.? Many of the best railroad stocks in New England, those 1 which now command twenty and thirty per cent pre| mium, were at one time selling in this market as much i { belew as they are now above par. A few years will suf, flee to produce as great a change in the position ef the' I two above named stocks, as those of New England have realized.
