The Wttkly Herald will be ready at tl o'clock this morning. Single copies sixpence The foreign news per steamships Great Western and Acadia?the latest news from the seat of war in Mex'eo, as well as of the operations of our navy, together with such other news as inay he received up to the hour ol publi. cation, will all be published in this number of the lYrtek'y, in addition to the regular quantity of mis cellaneous, political, and monetary intelligence. The engraving will be of great value. It will be an illustration ot Alvarado, its fortifications, and the plan of attack ot Commodore Conner. Attack oil AlvnraUo. We give on the outside of the Herald of this morning, an accurate sketch of Alvarado, and the plan of attack led by Commodore Conner on the 15th ult. It was drawn by an officer now in the Gulf, and is strictly correct. The Affair* of Ireland?The Doleful Proapcct. The wail offamine rises louder and louder fiom unfortunate Ireland, and still the ports are closed, and still there is no restriction on exporters, nc measures of relief save the appointment of reliel committees, and the expressed intention of the government to dole out a lew thousand dollars in driblets round the country to purchase food fot the most indigent, that is, when the poople prove to the satisfaction ol the officials that they are indigentby dying of starvation. Tis true the board of public works have, in some half dozen places, employed some unfortunate beings at task work, for which they pay theni hardly sufficient to keep body and soul together; but this is a mere drop in the bucket. The evil has been allowed to gain such headway that it threatens to undermine the foundations of society, and instead of applying props and stays sufficient to arrest the impending crash, the government, after the manner of those dolts mentioned by Juvenal, stop up the chinks with a little plaster, regardless of the ruin that may ensue, so that every thing be lor the present, to outward appearance, lair and smooth, and stable. Lord John Russell has written a long letter to the Duke of Leinster, defining his position, and plainly intimating that no relief can be expected from England. The minister talks wisely ofwhlit must be done in future years to supply the people with food, but virtually acknowledges his own incapacity to meet the present crisis. He udvisce the purchase of grain by proprietors of property, and the disposal of such food, in shops furnished on purpose with flour at a /air price, with a moderate profit. Now all this would have been excellent advice six months ago; but now, in the very pressure of famine, it is lamentubly out ol piece?it is more?it is trifling and contemptible in the first minister of the crown. Where is now that energy, that iron will which should command the ports to be opened, and which should prohibit in breweries and distilleries the use ol grain, thus preventing the consumption of the people's food in distillation, and permitting the free importation of everv snecies ol foou necessary for daily sustenance, indiscriminately, from every country. Alas ! for the starving millions of Ireland, such energy dees not chtrcfccterise the present premier of England, and the only man with nerve to meet the present crisis is no longer a minister of the crown. In Galway the people are in such distress that the corn is escorted to and from the mill by n company of dragoons, and on one occasion such was the desperation of the populace that they actually broke through the guard, and tearing open the sacks took away the iiour by the handful. A deputation of gentlemen from the counto 01 Cork, headed by Mr. O'Connell, has waited or tha Lord Lieutenant, and reported the state oi each district. The aggregate reports of the deputation showed an appalling extent of destitution. 1 he Lord Lieutenant received their suggestions, and made a vague promise, on the part ol the government, that every thing possible should be done for the reliel of the people. What idle mockeries are those deputations to Lord Lieutenants. The corporation of Limerick have memorialized the government to open the ports, of course without success. At a late meeting in Fermoy, at which an immense number of landed proprietors attended, it was resolved, as the sense of the meeting, that in the baronies represented! the owners and occupants of land have exerted themselves to the extent of their ability to provide employment, foi the laboring population, at the same time solemnly declaring, that instead of facilitating the .projects submitted to them, the government official have created difficulties and delays, and have proved themselves wholly unequal to the emer vencv. This is not nn opinion, but the unanimous opinion of severa hundred of the most respectable gentlemen ir Ireland, of all cieeds and political opinions. At this meeting, Mr. O'Connell, who is known tc be well disposed towards the existing government, used the following language,? " We have heard cad tales, tales of horror, this day from the Rev Mr. Disney, the Kev. Mr. O'Brien, tht Rev Mr. Daly, and the Rev. Mr. Walsh?tales tha make the heart shrink within itself, and despair look with impatient anxiety for some mode, some solution 01 relief Matters are coming to a dreadful pass. Do you authorise me to tall the LordLieutenant that the peace ol the coantry is not secure 7 (Yes, yes.) Do you authorise me to tell him that distress and misery are wide spread and universal 7 (Yes, yes) That starvation is stalking over the land, ami that he will be responsible tor the loss of countless human beings, if something be not done. (Yea, yes?)" Meantime, in the midst of all these wordy propositions for theoretical and distant relief, the people are, in the agony of their despair, bringing themselves in contact with the laws. The snbrs of the dragnor, and the policeman's bullet are hastening the work which famine has begun. Some again, not possessing even the strength to challenge death at the hands of the soldiery, lie down by the wayside and die. On the 28th ol September, a man named Michael Fleming was shot down in a food riot at llungarvon. At Templemore, a riot took place on the 26th of October, in which several bakers' shops were forcibly entered in despite of the presence of the police ; and t n the collision that afterwards ensued between ?he populace and the n^ihtary, several persons were injured. The Rev. Cornelius O'Brien, of Lurrah, in a letter to the Tipptrary Vindicator, relates an ap. palling instance of death by starvation. These are but a lew of the many dreadful sigw of the famine which is already busy in thinnin) the population of Ireland. W? wonder much that something has not beer done in this country for the relief of Ireland.There are one thousand men in this city and Bos ton wealthy enough to send ship loads of corn t< Ireland, but we have as yet perceived no move ment of this nature. This was not the conduct o the paoplr of Ireland in tho time of our noed.? They were the first to supply u?, at the outbreak of our revolution, with money, lootl and arms.? The voice of their sympathy reached us across the waters, although to speak a word of sympathy lor us at that time was to endanger their ow n lives. I^et us now repay that debt while it is in our power. Where are the repealers with their rent 1 m W<of zr i t vrrs rtvf* -The mere tr.? i,uities wo ma e in legarTtn the p&id to lemale operatives in this city, the more; ye are I convinced ot the inutstlce of the " bosses," as they are termed. A short time since we proved that women engaged in making and covering umbrellas and parasols, could not possibly earn enough to support and clothe themselves at the prices allowed them by their employers, even if they worked eighteen of the twenty-four hours per day. We have since learned that the charge of oppression in this respect applies equally as strong to the merchant tailors and clothiers, as to the umbrella manufacturers, particularly those engaged in the Southern trade. It appears that they give their girls only forty-four cents for making a vest in the most fashionable style, for which they charge their customers from five to seven dollars and a half?to do which a girl must work from early in the morning till late at night?and many are unable to make one a day. The merchant tailors' profit on the same articles varies from two ; to four dollars according to the quality of the material. Assuming that every girl can make a vest each day, they can only earn twenty-one shillings a week, with which to support and clothe them1 selves?a sum that every person must know is inadequate for the purpose. The question arises, in what manner can this system of oppression he remedied, so long asthe girls continuo to woik for any prices their employers may think fit to give them f We certainly do not know, except it he done by the force of ! public opinion. Let the system he exposed lully, and it cannot Tail to meet public condemnation. > i We are determined to do it as far as it lies in our > power, and we accordingly invite the operative I girls of this city and State to furnish us with full 1 j particulars of their sufferings. The Explosive Cotton?Value ok ns disco' very to America.?The new discovery that cotton prepared by being saturated with some acids, L has as much explosive power as gunpowder, is one which will be of vast service to this country. The fact that it is far cheaper than gunpowder will soon bring it into universal use, and then what a market the entire world offers for the staple of our Southern States ! This is a prospect 1 j of gieat interest both in a national and commercial point of view. We can now grow as much cotton as we please without any fear that it will become a drug in the market, or that it will depreciate in value after a certain supply. We saw some experimenting yesterday of a highly interesting nature produced with cotton prepared by Dr. Chilton, the chemist, in Broad way, who is the first, thus far, in this city, to prepare the explosive cotton. The experiments satisfied us that the discovery is entirely successful, and that cotton is destined to supersede gunpowder. With a 9mall quantity a pistol ball was sent through a three inch plunk, and flattened against a brick wall. i 1 The Expedition of Florks.?We gave yesterday a full history of the rise and progress of the new trouble apparently brewing for the South American Republics. We have since received Ib iciin uaicu juuuuuu, me dial mi., waicn mentions the entrance of a new character in the sceno, General Santa Cruz. The lettir says:? " He ne sooner heard of the expedition on his arrival at Bordeaux, than he started lor Madrid, where be joined company with Floras, since the plan seems to be, i not to form the Empire of Munoz from Kcuador alone, but also from Peru and Bolivia. The house of Hunts in this city has assumed the account of all expenses for Christina, and has already bought two steamers, the Soberano and Neptuno, both of which are well furniahed r with military equipments, besides several vessels tor transports, among them one of a thousand tens burthenIn Ireland they are collecting men for Klores, and prin. ; ted letters have been given out, one of which 1 held. ' 4 They are to the sumo effect as those published in Spain, offering $.1 on enlistment, $b upon appearing at head quarters, and f>b more upon embarking. The time of enlistment is for five yesrs, after which each individual is to receive 10 fanegadat of land, two oxen, and a cow. ' Dn J. Joaquin is the general agent here for the expedition. Although the whole affair is clearly quixotic, yet all the above statements are correct, though in truth I do not fear much avil will result." There then seems to be no doubt that the expedition will be organized, but as the writer of the > i above letter says, the whole atluir will result in no evil of consequence. It must die a natural f death. It would be well, however, to keep an i eye upon this patriotic Flores. r New York Elections?We have official returns complete from all the State, on the vote for and against the Constitution and Negro Suff rage, ahd of fifty-six counties for Governor and Lieut.

Such enquiries end retearche* have taken a . ^ new start in these our time* -, and there i* no period to ^ which they have been directed with such intense inter- I n est as to that of the middle age* of European civiliza- ^ tion No topic* within the last half century have gain- ! w ed more attention than these, whether discoursed upon ; g| ' from the desk of the college professor or from the tri. tj buue of the popular lec urer. Books hare swarmed ^ from the press on these subjects, and they have no g sooner appeared on the other continent than they have ai been reprinted on this la this age of reforms and m revolutions, men's minds are naturally turned back upon past ages?some with a sort of lingering regret tl for their departure, and others, with the keen spirit of * historical analysis, in tracing to their source* the institu- ^ tions amidst which we live. There is no point in those ei ages more deeply pregnant with meaning for the modern ! jj' student than that of John. About that era arose the tl crusades, those gigantic expeditions so fraught with the O mvar on,) noioinn of mino-tooil warlikn ami rollaimia an. i thusiasm. Than vu tha contest fiercest between the fc authority of tha church and the authority of kinge ; the church being for a brief space triumphant in the humi. 01 Ration of John. Then in England, the feudal system struggled for ascendancy against the popular laws and ^ customs of Anglo-Saxon origin; and these again acquired w new strength, not from any intentions in tho baron* favor Tl i able to liberty, but incidentally from the weakness o1 t( ' the sovereign. Then was determined the form which En" '' glish political institutions should assume , the Anglo- w Saxon element prevailed over tho Norman, and time and ; " j circumstances have tended ever since to give that ele- l' i ment a wider and a wider expansion. This reproduc| tion, then, is a living commentary on the opening of our 8' ; freedom ; it Is not a mere spectacle, but a most vivid m and a most impressive contribution to history. It affords D1 instruction by the fidelity of its scenery, of the most j, practical and the most sober kind. It affords pleasure to y] the highest taste by its tine artistic combinations ; while, n by the passions in it, and their reveals to us those p] mysteries of the moral nature, as only Shakspeare, of all human beings, can repeal them. Tho scenery, then, is y true to its age, the performers are true to their part; and r( the spirit and the iioetry are out from the august soul of al hhikspeare. 'If tnere be epjoymont greater than can f, be thus obtained, we know not where on earth it is to rl I be found. We will here particularize but one of the ti characters?that of Constance, by Mrs. Kean. The cun y ning tempting of Hubert by Mr. Kean, as John, is most p j admirable acting; the malignant laugh when ho gains j, his point; the look of blank terror when he think9 the r deed is done, but would wish it not done?ail this was e impressively striking. But so far as passion is i, concerned, the real grandeur of the drama centres in \ Constance. Bhakspeare has no character of a more har- j, rowing power; it wrings the very soul even to read her Cl j words; but it is tearful, almost beyond our bearing, to t) I see her grief, as Mrs. Kean impersonates it. It is not y mere declamation?the word we have used is the true q word. Mrs. Kean gives us a living impersonation of the n utmost Buffering ot the broken-hearted Constance. We w can conceive of nothing finer. Mrs. Siddons, for aught ? we know, may have been; but we have never seen Mrs. ^ Siddons, and we are willing to talk with heartfelt enthu- nj | siasm, and grateful appreciation, of the pleasure which n { contemporary genius afl'ords us. What could surpass the manner in which she poured out her indignation ! n against John, her robukes of Phillip, and her withering ! w contempt and scorn of Elinor 1 And could womanly an- I y guish use to more sublim tytf misery than when she i says, " I am not mad," Stc I We will merely repeat, that ! if there be anything finer than Mrs. Ktan's Constance, ; tl we cannot conceive of it. j rr Much of late is spoken on the degradation of the stage, si ; If this be so, where lies the fatilt ? Certainly not with n the actor or maneger who put on the stage sucn a play as 1 w this, in the manner which thev huvn done, rivinv in tha n , public an opportunity of the noblest gratification which 11 can be drawn from intellect, from passion and from ait. We find that we committed an unintentional erior in n giving to Mr Bany the credit of ('tilling the supernuma- a( I ties, Uc. It it entirely the work of Mr. Kean. The error g I was a natural one. Mr. Barry is stage manager, and his Cl merits cannot be overrated ; but the energy and enter- (1 pnse displayed in producing this play belongs wholly to ^ I Mr. Kean. ' p, Bowery Theatre?Ma. Booth's Benefit.?As we p anticipated, this theatre was filled last night to ? ; its utmost capacity, by the numerous admirers of this a< once ominent actor, who, though on the decline, came , ri still to greet him with a cordial welcome on tho occasion ; of his benefit. It is at all times creditable to the admirers | c ot true genius, (and no where can they be tound so sin- 1 h 1 cere or liberal than at " Old Bowery,") the just ap- t) preciation of the merits and qualities that attach to the < j, great actor, who after, to a certain extent, having " fret- . t, ted his hour upon the stage,"comes beforehisoldfriends ! p and acquaintances, to revive former iriendshuis. In this r Mr. Booth last evening was not disappointed, the house n being filled to excess, it being his last appearance here j p . for the season, and his friends wishing to give him | p " A bumper at parting." . e . Mr Booth's personation ol IticharJ, Duke of Glo'ster, in n this splendid tragedy of Shakspeare, was highly wrought p and powerlully sustained. He smwars more at home in this pit ce than in any other in which he performs, and with an impaired ariiculation, the fire and eneigy which he iniuses into the pert, show the great powers and con- ? ception of the actor. Indeed, if Mr. Booth confined his uctingsingly to gesticulation, the language of the great author ot the tragedy would seem to find embo- | v diment in his very looks and gestures. Mr. fi Claike's Duke ot Buckingham, was a good perform- ti ance. As a lising actor he promises well in his profes- a sion Vache's Lord Stanley, was admirably sustained. 1< ' Mrs. Madison, as Queen Elizabeth, and Mrs. Sergeant as c ' Lady Anne, were creditable performances. The Misses { c Vallee danced a favorite " I'as," with much animation. 3 . The " Artlul Dodger" and " Dumb Girl ot Genoa" were si also pertormcd, in which De Bar kept the house in a roar by his personation of Timothy Dodge; and of Strappado, j c or the drunken Corporal, in the " Dumb Girl of Genoa " ; j, The entertainments of the ovening passed ofl? in a nan- 1 j ner highly creditable to the entire company. The bill ! j, lor this evening will be found equally attractive. ! p Palmo's.?Every part cf this house was crowded, laat j d i evening, and a more enthusiastic assembly we never law collected in thia city. M'lle Blangy's triumph waa com. ! , plete. Ai much aa w ? have tupposed her capable of, we p were totally unprepared to witness such a very perfec- j I tion of the graceful and beautiful as the presented in her 1 several pat. in the first place, as "La Giselle," she a danced better than we ever saw her dance It before, ! y though our commendation of her performance of thi* , tl character lias been unsparingly as it was deservedly fi given , and in " La Chatte," she introduced a vivacity j tl and a sylph-like lightness in her steps, which were accompanied almost throughout by the impulsive applause a . of all preient. Repeatedly was she encored, and at the j j ' falling of the curtain, she was called out to receive their v [ testimonials of delight But the crowning piece of all was what she simply announced as a " Fandango." It : 1 < was danced with a manner that we never saw sui |>assed . P ; on a iy stuge. A mere fascinating, supremely angelic J 0 1 pei lormance, we never saw yet accomplished by a being P of eaith, and as sho seemed to float on the air, ' i the v ei y pei ((unification of grace and hue) ant beauty, " ' the building shook again with the storm of prolonged ap- i n 1 , plause that hurst from the spectators. She, of course, j c. ! was encored, and again at the close was called before j I iuc vunoiu. i> ur uunijuuui uarver uc B cuauuumiun j , of her success last evening, her position will he one en- 1 ' , viable, indeed. \1.

The rev entiemca then made another short prayer, and Tho tai said, "Oh,'Almighty Ood, I beseech you to give e pardon, and remission of all my tins, through mis Christ our Lord." Then looking towards the heritt, said, "Kxecutioner, do your duty," and just ai te sheriff was drawing the cap over his eyes, he imloied all present to take care of his poor wife ; the sp was drawn over his eyes, and on that instant [r. McDonough, tho Deputy Sheriff, struck the >pe with the axe, and down went the weights, id up went the negro swinging in the air, some S feet om the ground. He made several severe struggles foi aspiration, with his hands clinched firmly, until conges on of the brain took place, which immediately relaxec 10 nerves, and his arms dropped with his bands onen.turing the whole time, this unfortunate man conductei imself with manly fortitude,meeting his death with trut hristian faith, which reflects much credit on the rever nd gentlemen who attended him. Tho prison yarc lading to the gallows was a mirably arranged by Mr latseil, the Chief of Police, by stationing a large num er of policemen, with their staves of office, forming i omplete line of the best looking set of men we huv< en for some time, who kept the centre clear for the heritt , which has never been done so completely before uite an excitement prevailed around the Tombs all th< ioming. Some five or six hundred blacks and whitei ere congregated in Krank Lin street, opposite the rison door, all anxious to obtain a sight of the xecution. Many hundreds were unable to obtain adlission, the Sheriff having already admitted a sufficieu umber to witness the execution, according to law. A abscription was instituted by Mr. Deputy Sheriff Bren an, for the benefit of the wife of Thomas, and $30 44 eta ,-ero collected The body was interred in a vault in th< ullivan street Church. Tnc Weatheb ?Yesterday was a very fine day, an< le air was cool and braciDg. In the early part of thi torning the wind blew very strong, and did damage t< >me ot the awnings, that still hang out like the "las >ae of summei," in some of the streets. The streets hich were completely drenched by the rains of th< revious night, appeared clean and dry in many parts i consequence of the cool dry air of yesterday. Fiaxs.?A fire broke out at Uoulding's surgical instru ent maker, in the rear of No. 99 Anu street, last nighl t about 6 o clock, and was promptly put out by the re companies. There were two alarms also in the jurse of the evening, which kept the fire companies ot le qui virr It is to be regretted that some effective plar at not been adopted, so as to concentrate, in the shortes assible time, the energies of the fire companies, am remptly direct them to the proper locality when i re takes place. Somo such plan must eventually b< lopted before this useful force can be made t< st with that promptitude and dispatch that thoulc snder their cervices effective. The question o itablishing a telegraphic communication from depots ii le various districts, so as to enable the companies to as ertainwith promptitude the places where fires occur as already received the atteutionof certain members o ie Board of Aldermen, but the project has failed Then i no doubt but the adoption of some such plan woulc s ?ri?|i<>iijl ? ?tiu ?? iuiiur on ui art of (be fire companies ; and until something of thi iod ia permanently aet on foot in tbia city, neither lifi ior property can be deemed aecure. The hiatory of tin ast, and the nightly recorda at the Fire Department arniah abundant evidence of the necesaity of throwing very poeaible facility in the way of the fire compa iea, who are in a great measure the guardiana of tlx ublic property in our city.

Stanton street, lietween ttherif nd Columbia, is in a state of disgraceful filth for the las sw months, sufficient to generate disease. There is i Lurch and public school In this locality, and this cir umstance in itself ought to be sufficient to induce thi treet Inspector to have the filth taken oflf the street a ion as possible. Thi: Hydrants?The inhabitants of Carmine stree omplains a good deal in consequence of their not bcini ivored, like most of their neighbors, with a public by rant. This street ia a perfect thoroughfare, and is situatei l a part of the city which requires the advantages of i ublic hydrant.

Maximilian Reader vi. Umty Johnson, impleaded with Jacob Hraisled?This was an action to recover the amount of two promissory notes, made by the defendants, payable to the order of the plaintiff 80 daye I after date, one for the sum of $103, and the other for r $377. it am>earcd that the defendants occupied the United States Hotel in this city, and carried on the business of hotel keepers for some time previous to the year 1845. [ in that establishment. It also appeared, the hotel with the r fixture* and furniture, and some pait of the stock in 1 trade, were hired from Mr. Samuel Leggett, the landlord i ot the piemises. In 1845 the concern became embarrassed, > debts to the amount of $30,000 having been incurred, i which the firm were unable to pay. The defendant, [ Johnson, then dissolved the partnership, and applied un, der the act called the two-thirds act, to be discharged from his debts ; and accordingly obtained his discharge. The plaintiif alleges that previous to obtaining his ais[ charge, he entered into a private arrangement with Legi gett, his landlord, to give him n prelarence over his i other creditors, to induce him to sign his petition, and l for that purpose handed him over property to the amount of $10,000 or $12,000, or procured him to issue , a landlord's warrant and levy on it ; that after ' the levy was made, Leggett took the property into his own poioemoa discharged toe warraut, und afterwards signed Johnson's petition ai a creditor for $18,000. The plaintiff's counsel contends that Johnson's discharge is fraudulent and Toil as against his other creditors, inas1 much as the act declares that if auy i reference is given : to any particular creditor, or any partial payment, or promise of any payment made to vuch creditor, it ritiates the discbarge, if one be obtained, and further it requires a full and fair inventory of all the effects and property of the person so applying to be made and annexed to the assignment, ana given to his assignee, which require | ments of the act the plaintill' alleges the defendant had not complied with. The defendant's discharge was set up as a defence. It was lurther stated that the whole of the furniture, stock in trade, &c. was owned by Mr l.eggeit; that they were only hired to the defendant, and snould be returned to Leggett;or at any rate, that such part of the stock as should be used, should be made good when the leare expired It was, therefore, contended that Mr. Leggett was justified in whnt he had done It was farther alleged that a violent opposition was got up against Johnson at the time he obtained his discharge, and the same evidence then given was given on the present trial, notwithstanding which, the jury in that case rendered a verdict j for Johnson.

John Steele, of No. 510 Broome street, in the month of September last. On the part of the prosecution, it was shown in evidence that the accused went to the storo on Sunday motniug, and under the preterce of purchasing some wine for a sick person, obtained admission, and was immediately followed in by several accomplices, who conducted themselves in a tumultuous manner, aud while Mr. Stee'e went to a rear window to call assistance, the accused seized the property in question and decamped?was pursued and overtaken with the gun in his possession.

During the investigation of the charge of conspiracy to defraud the Mechanics' Bank of Baltimore, a statement was made in relation to the condition of the bank before and since the defalcation It appears that the entire loss, inclusive of Birch's overdraft and the supposed fraud of Turner, is $60,137 83. The capital of the bank, actually paid in, is $680,813. Cash surplus on the 0th of Nov1846, $60,331 68. Of the circulation issued between 1806 and 1031, judging from the length of time it has been outstanding, it is probable there ha* been lost, and for which the bank will not he called on to pay, $34,430. The banking house and real estate of the bank now stand estimated on the books of the bank at only $0,000, but they are fairly supposed to be worth $30,000. The difference then between these two estimates shows ' a surplus of $0' ,000. The earnings of the bank from the last discount day, up to yoaterday, are $30,447 68. If, then, the bank divide three per cent on ita capital the next dividend day, it pays $17,604, leaving a surplus of the last six months' profits of $8,763 33. These four items, therefore, show the actual surplus in money and property which the bank has, over and above its capital, to be $103,606. The capital stock of the Boston and Providenoe Railroad Corporation has been increased by the creation of thirty-six hundred now shares.
