The foreign news per steamships Great Western and Acadia?the latest news front the seat of war in Mex'eo, as well as of the opera" lions of oar navy ; together with such other news as may be received up to the hour ol publication, will all be published in the IVttkly Herald of this week, in addition to the regular quantity of miscellaneous, political, and monetary i ntelligence. The engraving will be of great value. It will be an illustration ol Alvarado, its fortifications, and the plan of attack ol Commodore Connor. It will be ready to-morrow morning, at 8 o'clock Price 6^ cents. Our Illustrations of Mexico. The readers ol the Herald are aware that since i he commencement of hostilities with Mexico, we have regularly published views of the principal cities, towns, fortresses, and places of interest, that huve been of great value to them in obtaining a correct knowledge of the operations of our anny anil navy. We need hardly say that our efforts to please our patrons in this respect have been attended with great outlay of money, but the patronage we receive is sutficient tj justify us in tnuking every exertion in our power, without regard to cost, in maintaining the character of this journal. We therefore desire to say, for the information of all our (fiends, that we have recently placed in the hauds of our uitists many additional sketches and views of Mexico, taken on the spot by men of talent, wluch we shall give, from time to time, as the war proceeds. The public may rely on their being strictly ac- i curate. We have now more than a dozen on hand. The Balance of Power on the American Con* tlntnt. We are now in a fair way to have the vexed I uestion of the toleration or noil-toleration of European interference in the affairs of this continent, definitively settled. The internal dissensions of some of the republics of Sonth America are being seized upon by France, Spain, and England, as pretexts for intervention. There is every reasou to believe that emissaries of those European powers are constantly at work to promote discord in the South American States, in order thereby to beget a specious occasion for in. terference. There is scarcely one of those States that is not entangled in some wuy by English bond-liolders, wretched hucksters, who think to purchase the liberty of a nation for some yellow earth, as if that liberty were a marketable commodity. This system of holding the freedom of independent republics on debenture, is becoming a nuisance. The unholy traffic is uublushingly carried 011 in broad daylight, and the liberties of a people, purchased by years of toil, by hardships and by blood, are treated as matters of bargain and sale. This evil is growing too large to.be longer endured. The immense power wielded by the United States is entrusted by an all-wise Providence, not te be buried, unproductive, in the earth, but to be used . freely for the protection of the less powerful republics on this continent. We sue, as it were, Heaven-appointed guardians of the liberties of our sister republics, and as we vindicate the ; rights of this trust, in the case of Mexico,so should we pertorm its duties in forbidding this European pettifoggery in the domestic concerns of our weaker neighbors. We give in another portion of to-day's paper a communication in relation to the affairs of the republic of Venezuela, the views embraced in which we neither endorse nor repudiate, but which we simply give without comment of any kind. We also give an extract from the London Timet of October 6th, in relation to General Flores and the republic of Ecuador ; also other documents of a late date relativettto Ecuador. The statement from the Timit is an' exparte one, and as such, should be received with caution. It represents General Flores as a disinterested patriot, and his enemies as cold-blooded unprincipled murderers, selfish, brutal and tyrannical. It further represents Gen. Flores as returning)to overturn the faction opposed to him, through pnre love of country, and as instigated by no personal or ambitious views. We are aware that republics are proverbially ungrateful, and, therefore, we, unacquainted, except by hearsay, with the facts of the case, do not absolutely discredit the statement that General Flores has been wrongfully banished. The stipulations entered into on his departure may have been violated by the Roca party, and his treatment by his countrymen may have been anything but handsome, but we cannot force ourselves to the belief that a pure disinterested patriot, such as the general claims to be, would have recourse to the crowned heads of Europe to right his cause. If he have faith in his own motives, he should have returned to his country single-handed, endeavored to arrest the progress of the evils he deplores, and if unsuccessful have died for the country he could not save. Doing this he might have claimed the* title of patriot. But his course has been rather that of a disappointed traitor than of a patriot.? Under the auspices of Franc e and Spain, he intends to invade his country,that country for which tie professes such love, as the head of a band of adventurers picked up from every country in Europe, to carry bloodshed and desolation into the heart of Ecuador. But worse remains behind. For the assistance of France and fctpain there must be a consideration Neither Louis Philippe nor Christina is absolutely a pattern of disinterested generosity. The designs of the former on Spain, and through'Spain on her colonics, is a matter of notoriety. The Lait held out to Christina is said to be a promise that one of her sons, by the Duke of Rianzares, should be made king of the three Venezuelan provinces and Peru, which this Pizarro expects to conquer and erect into a monarchy. Tins is a rumour. Nothini' is known with certainty o( the conditiens upon which the queen mother lends her asistance, but that there must be some weighty consideration, there can be no manner of doubt. The patriotism of Flores is certainly of rather an equivocal nature. Mr. Folk has hitherto strictly adhered to Mr. Monroe's doctrine, with regard to European interference in the affairs of this continent, first in rejecting the proposal of the British government to refer the Oregon question to arbitration ; and more lately, in declining the mediation of England in the adjustment of our difficulties with Mexico. His course, in both instances, has met the cordial approval of the American people, and we trust that he and all his successors will uphold this principle in all its purity. Should this foolish crusade of General Flores against his native country bo carried into effect, the time will coauc for asserting this doctrine, and placing it on record before the nations of the earth. That n armed aggression by France and Spain, on the lrce and peaceful republics of South America would be resisted by our government, admits not of a doubt. Wo trust that the governments ol both countries are too prudent to hazard a collision with us, in the hopeless attempt to establish a monarchy on the shores of the now world. A war on behalf of the South American republics, would be entered into by our libertyloving people with a zeal unequalled since the war of the Revolution. But we cannot persuade onrselves that this attempt is really serious. There arc so many difficulties?nay, impossibilities, in the way ol its accomplishment, that we cannot believe any man of common sense, much less a man like Louis Philippe, distinguished for wisdom and sugacit), would undertake such a Quixotic impracticability. Rut We will wait and see. I 1 jtli ii i m . - \.n. y m hj..i The fn?tie III I'M and It* Abuir. We give, on ihe first page of this day's paper, die affidavits of four or five individual!! employed by the press of this city to procure and lorward by the New York and Boston magnetic telegraph the news lrom Europe, upon the arrival of the steam ship Britannia at Boston. We give these statements, made under oath, for the purpose of placing before the public the facts connected with t\je matter, to enable them to draw their own inferences. It appears to us as if those engaged in transmitting the news, the company's operators, had, for motives as yet unexplained, grossly deceived the parties employed bv the New York press, to say the least. When such an important method of communication as this is in the hands of those who sacrifice public benefit for private interests, it becomes a dangerous matter, and completely destroys all the advantages of the invention. We have repeatedly stated that these magnetic lines should be in the hands ol the government, [and the experience of the past week confirms our first impression. No one can place 'hf vugiuvai uuuuucnuc in suiuc ui iiic^c mica, its they are now managed, as there appears to be to? much fanaticism, or some other ism, behind the scenes, calculated to turn them into the hands of speculators. The conductors or proprietors of these telegraph lines no doubt imagine that they are beyond the reach of the people or the power of the press, but they may find out their mistake when it is too late. We are disposed to give them the benefit of any investigation they may choose to make before condemning them any further. It is due to themselves and to the public that an exposition of tlie affair should be given. But never trifle icith the starving. Atlantic Steamers ?We understand that the French government have recently made a contract with a private company to run a line of steamships between the city of New York and Cherbourg, in France. The government, it appears, has ceded to this company the steamship Ulloa, Darien, Christophe Golombe and Canada, each of which is two thousind tons burden and 464) horse power, for the term of ten years, on condition that they have them insured for twelve million franrs. By the terms of treaty, it is said that these vessels were to commence running on the first of December next, but it is probable they will not be ready till eatly in the spring. Every person knows that the United States government has made a contract with a company in this city to run a line of four steamships from this port to Cowcs and Bremen, the first of which will leave here next spring. This company have thus far been highly successful Their steamship now on the stocks in this city will bo a magnificent vessel. We refer our readers to a uuuce 01 hi is company 111 unouier column ui una day's Herald The English government has also made a conlract with Mr. Cunard to run a line between here and Liverpool. The, Great Western Company will probably build one or t<vo more vessels. Thus it appears that in the year 1847 we will have four dill'erent lines of steamships running between this port and Europe?numbering, in all some seventeen or eighteen vessels. The benefits arising from which, will be chiefly felt in New York, but will also be extended to the most distant parts of our great country. " The influence of our government and institutions on Europe will, of course, be proportionably increased by this frequent and rapid communication. Steam seems designed as the great element in advancing the prosperity and greatness of the unitea states. The Express Case.?Mr. Holbrooke, the agent of the Post Office Department, lias obtained sufficient evidence to commence the suits against the express oompanies, charged with carrying letters over the United States mail routes. The case of the United States rI. Thompson & Co.'s Express, for violation of the Post Office laws, iti carrying letters out of the mail over the Western Railroad, between Springfield and Albany, came up before his honor Judge Spraguc, in the United Slates Circuit Court, at Boston, yesterday. Nearly the whole of the day was occupied in settling the question whether the way in which the mail is carried by the railroad company between Boston and Albany constitutes, according to the language of the law, a contract with flic Posttiiuster General. The mail on this, filed many other routes, is carried sometimes, for a while, merely by verbai agreement, no contract having been executed, both parties governed by former contracts, which have not been renewed. Robert Kuntoul, Jr., for the prosecution ; Choat and Ashman for the defendant. If the points raised by the defendant's counsel in this case are sustained, Mr. Cave Johnson must make contracts with the railroad companies at once, or the letter-carrying business will bu taken out of his hands by these express companies. The Earl of Elgin, tick New Governor General op Canada.?The delay in the Earl ot Elgin's arrival to assume the Governor Generalship of Canada, of which Lord Cnthcart has been locum Irnrnt, or administrator, s nee the retirement of the late Lord Metcall, does not so much prosper! from the nou-completion of those plans predicted in the general economy of the colonies by the colonial department, but from the desire of His Excellency to promote the domestic economy and splendor of his household, by sharing the honors of his appointment with Lady Emily Lambton, the eldest daughter of the late Ix>rd Durham, who in 1838 was Governor-Gen oral of the Provinces.

The play of "King Jolih wurr ' prated last night in the gorgeous style io wliich it was ; 1 1 JlWdaced for-.the Ant time on Monday evening. We j j have before remarked upon the iplendor and magniA- 0 cence with which it haa been put upon the stege, and ; c upon the reiearch and taate diaplayed by Mr Kean in preventing the play with a degree of hiatoric truthful- a nesa never equalled in the production of any play in this j ' . country. The rude pomp and alendor of the middle P ages are admirubly illuatrated in the Arat acene of the Arat a act. The riae of the curtain diaplaya the court of John, the monarch himself, seated upon hii throne, his mother, j, Queen Elinor, on hia right hand, and his knights and no- b hies, dressed in the court costumes oi tho period, * standing in groups around The chamber is ta- k l paatriad according to the fashion of those days. . <j and the Aoor is covered with a cloth, on which ; Q , are designed the royal arma of P'.ngland. sur : ? mounted by the rrosa, and other similar devicea The | 8 arms, costumes an I accoutrements of nobles, knights, ^ nriests, men-at-arms, servitors and heralds, are all strictly f, in accordance with the best authorities. The opening of ; tl the second act displays the French army, with King ( <j Phillip and the Dauphin at its head, drawn up in battle c array before the walls of Angiers, with nil the engines and appliances of war ; and when the King of England I and his train come upon the (tags, the appearance of the ' d opposing hosts, drawn up on oppoaite sides glittering in aj their gorgeous armor, is of surpassing grandeur Tho . acene in King Phillip's tentiaequally grand and imposing. ] nod the interior of tno temple church of Northampton is 8 one of sombre magniAcence But the gem of the entire. ! ?. is tho last acene of the last act?the death of King ; { John, in the orchard of Swinstead Ahboy On one ! | aide rise the gloomy walls of the monasterv, * from the gate of which issues a train of monks j and nobles, bearing the couch of the dying mon ! c arch while on the other aide is seen tha church of. i d 1 tached to the abbey, the light of torches gleaming 0 through it? atained window*, Every thing is in ;>erfect ! P i keeping with the melancholv occasion The noiseless | ' i tread of the monk*, who, in flowing robos of black, tell- | ing their bead* in ailent prayer, lurroun I the couch of the dying king-tbe respectful eadnesa of the noble*, v and the unrestrained grief of the prince, all bespeak the I j solemnity of the approaching event, aod the reverence ; |, i in which the name of king waa held in those day*, how > (I : unworthy *oever the occupant of the throne wa* of the i love and esteom of hi* subject*. When the monarch breathes his last, with the subdued wailiugof the attond- 1 ant*, blend the solemn tone* of the organ from the ; neighboring church, bearing up the prayers of the 1 n priests for the soul of the departed. Upon this srone, | tl which for beauty of design and completeness of ar- j rangement, we have never seen equalled, the cur tain falls The scenery is painted with a masterly tl hand, the costume* are magnificent, and in every respect p the play is produced on a scale of grandeur that reflect* ^ the nighest credit on Mr. Kean and the management.? There Is no part in the play admitting a display of great U histrionic excellence but that of Constance. There is a h sublimity in her frenzied grief and passion worthy fo the tj highest order of talent. The character differs from every other conception of Shakspeare. It combines woe, a scorn, maternal tenderness, rage, grief, and frantic des- h pair in one grand, gloomy Picture?a concentration of * stormy passions unrelieved by'one ray of hope, or glad- ? lies*, unlets such be called her frenzied exulta- '' tio.n in contemplating the dissensions produced between w France and England by the Pope's nuncio. Mra. Kean'i p Constance is perfect From first to last, it does not lack f< a shade of the necessary coloring; and the raving* of her a madness, as well as the agony of her grief, are of terrific ? grandeur. The impassioned tenderness with which she '> bewails her lost boy, is the very acme of fondness ani ? bereaved maternity. Her declamation throughout is " Kwnd, majestic, and impressive, reflecting in its tones tl e altornations of passion by which she ia swayed, but h nevertheless softened down into,sweetly modulated ac- '< cents of love when speaking of her Arthur. Her delivery c of th.i passage? J " I am not mad; this hair I tear is mine; 11 | My name is Constance; I was Geoffrey's wife; r Young Arthur is my son, and he is lost! t> 1 am not mad?I would to heaven I were, * For then 'tis like I should forget myself; 1 Oh, if I could, what grief should I forget'." f - is in the highest degree impressive and stamped with the 0 impress of masterly power, as is likewise her delivery * of the passage commencing t " Grief nils the room up of my absent child," 4tc. 1 We do not remember any other part which gives us a !j j higher estimate of Mrs. Kean's powers than this of Con- ? 1 stance. The part of Fuulconbridge is the next beat, iD the {. I play. Mr. Vaudcnhofl'reads the part, perhaps, as well as f it can be read, and yet there is something wanting in ,, , his delineation. One side of the character he gives coraElete? that is, that of the bold, lusty soldier, with a stout * tart, a ready hand, and a glib tongue, reckless of cou- * sequences, and indifferently honest, as times went But l there is a rich comic humor in the part, a rollicking love j" of fun, which we look for in vain in Mr. VandeuholT's }' impersonation The fact is, the character is too ? giave iu his hands. There is in it too much of the " i actor, and too little of Faulconbridge. It lack* f" | tone, and that hearty, Joyous, warm, life-like J] j coloring, of which it is eminently susceptible. We by j I iiv ?? tiMUoiiom llll. T OUUOUUUil. V/U IUC | contrary, we entertain the highest respect for hii talents, : which are of a rare duality, and for hit scholarship. * I which ii profound, we with he could unbend himself J i more than be does in Faulconbridge. The part of King " John doe* not afford much scope for Mr. Keen's genius. ! There is Tory little in it, except to keep the character ; perfect before the audience in the integrity of its die- 1 ! gutting meanness and viciousnest. The dialogue with > I Hubert, in the 3.1 scene of the Sd act, when he break* to ' that facile tool his murderous design on young Arthur, it c i given with masterly power snd effect. It is the only por-- c tion of the part affording Mr. Kean an opportunity for the 1 display of his genius, (it we except the death scene ) and he makes the most of it. The chuckling exultation with j j which, in a paroxysm of joy at the prospective success j 1 ol hit villany, he utters? , " 1 could be merry now." v is perfect in its naturalness. It is fully equal to his? " So much for Buckingham"? in" Kichard III." The agony of the death scene appro*i c mates to the sublime. Those who have witnessed Mr. 1 ; Keau's Beverly, know how truthfully and with what a i great effect he can delineate the tortures of a death by * poison. Dyott's Hubert posseses a great deal of merit. 1 it is careful, quiet, and judicious ; and the dungeon ? scene with Mi?s Denny, (who, by the way, plays Arthur ' with a p ecition, grace, and elegance, worthy of all ! nraiss) is marked by no ordinary artistic power Mr c Barry's Thiltp it a careful, accurate, and finished t piece of acting. This gentleman deserves no small i | share of credit for putting this play upon the t i stage in the elegant style in which it list beeu o produced. His skill, taste, and experince are apparent jn tue accuracy with which the business of the jday it t carr ied on. and in the vorv eltirient manner in which so I many supernumeraries, of couise unacqainted with stage ? business, aro brought on without inconvenience or tumult, adding immensely to the effect, and contributing t to render this great representation complete in all its , parts. Mr. Stark roads the part of the Dauphin very ere- , , ditably, although there is aome stiffness in his acting . I Mr. Bass's Pandulph is excellent, as is Mr Bellamy's | ; Melun, and Mrs. Abbot's Queen Klinor. "King John" is , I to be repeated every eveniug this week. c Bowxr.r Theatric? Mr. Booth, as Sir Giles Overreach, in the " New Way to Tay Old Debts," performed ^ ! last evening with much of that original fire and ability t that hare characterized his acting while in the full tide ' c of his popularity upon the stage. His personation of this ( difficult ehaiacter last evening was a beautiful piece j of acting, drawing forth his gredl powers as an actor, t and wae greatly applauded throughout. He was ably sup ported by Mr. Neatic as Wellborn ; Hadaway's Justice y Greedy, and Clark's Allworth, were also admirably sua- t toiiied. Mrs Madison's I.ady Allworth was very well f peiformed, and Mrs Sergeant's Margaret was at once I r.ha*te anff weli conceived.
