The course of trad# to far thi year ha* been such at to turn the tide et preeiou* metal* to our shorts, and are have no doubt but that wulnn the neat an mouth* the importation will reach tea or lib toon in II,on* of dollar*. The introduction of *nch an unmeute amount of specie into the country, will have a tendency to inllate the currency, by increasing the palter issues of the bank*, and an nidation oi prices will naturally follow. An expansion ot the currency, and an advance in prices, will lead to a very great extension of business, and a large importation of lor- ign manufactures, both on domestic m il foreign account, and ultimately to an exportation of specie to a greater amount than that imported. We do not look upon these deviations from the regular course of trade, in a favorable light, as they invariably lead to a derangement in all the departments of commerce, which we are unable to regulate for a long time. A largo importation of the precious metals uivaiiably leads to an exportation of a large amount, at a time when we are little able to loose it. For every dollar of specie brought into tbe country by tbe balance of trade, two dollars go ou'. We cannot calculate upon a commerce with Great Britain for any length of time similar to that we have had during the nast two years. nn less the harvests ot the United Kingdom should continue to be deficient. This we can by no means depend upon, although we have no doubt but that our agriculturists will extend the cultivation of the principal grains, lor the purpose ot meeting any foreign demand which may arise.? The supply of breadstuff's is, therefore, likely to > be sufficient for any emergency ; but in the absence of an extensive external demand, prices must fall to a ruinous, or at least, below a remunerative point. An extensive demand tor an article ;s sure to lead to an increased production, and unless the demand continues large, there must bo an over supply. The production of all kinds of grain in the United States, another year, provided the season is favorable, will be immense ; and in the event ol lh<- harvests of Europe being an average, it will be difficult to tell what level prices will reach. At present every thing wears a very prosperous appearance, and the condition of the producing classes has been so much improved by the profitable business of the past two years, that a very extensive demand for the manufactures of Europe, and the necessaries and luxuries of life generally, will be experienced next spring, which will stimulate importations ton great extent. We shall have glorious times for at least twelve months. Then look out for breakers. The commercial classes are at present in a healthy condition, but we are fearful that they will soon become diseased. Alt a California.?All the accouuts which we continue to receive from this distant portion of our territory, as we are now warranted in calling it, fully confirm the previous impression we had formed of its tine climate, fertility, and resourues. These, cpupled with the importance of its geographical position, must, under the judicious and losiering oare 01 a wise government, anil the natural enterprise of our people, ere long, render it one of the brightest jewels 111 our confederated coronet. The importance of this vast and valuable territory must be, to every reflective and patriotic American mind, a source of exultation and anxiety. Exultation at the extension of American principles, the triumph of Americau arms, and the great impulse it is destined to give to American commerce; and anxiety, sincere anxiety, that such a sound system of order, protection and impartial justice may be caily established there as shall unite all interests, and beget unlimited confidence amongst the mixed population of that ex ensive region, in our desire and ability to promote their welfare and happiness, and protect their persons and property. To accomplish this, in the present belligerent state of our relations with Mexico, and the daring and predatory habits of the roving bands of Indians and robbers who infest the ranchos and villages, and plunder the larmers and peaceable inhabitants, is no easy matter, and seems to demand some further consideration and energetic action from the government at Washington. A modified system of military colonization would, perhaps, be the most economical and - iT?s.'..* ' 1 ? niiwu'c iiiuud iu attuuinpiisn tnese desirable objects; nor do we conceive that the government would expor.once much difficulty in procuring, in this city ulone, a reasonable number of men willing to serve during the war, and afterwards, for the consideration of moderate grants of land, become permanent settlers; and, without further recoinpenc?, keep up their organization for the defence of that country and the protection of pro petty, Itc. itc. fcuch a class of men would have the strongest interest in the preservation of order, xndthe efficient defence oi tho country would i ost the government but little; and ifcompoaed of itelligent and industrious men, would exert a 1 owcrful influence in developing the resources of t ic country, extending its commerce, and attarh4 to our institutions us half civilized inhabitants. One or two regiments of such men, organized for a mounted force, and sent out on these terms, would confer incalculable benefit to our interests there, ar.d it is therefore with great satisfaction we have learned tnat Col. Dutf, with commendable sagacity, foreseeing what the necessities 01 that country would require, has offered the sorvicos of his regiment, attached to Gen. G. P. Morris' fine brigade in 'his city, to the government Washington, f Lc high rcspeclability, inulli-11C and fitness ol Col.

Altn California is destined to become one of the r chest aad most important States in the Union. Titc N'rw York' roR Mexico ? We learn that no provision Iihs yet been made for the immediate support of the men now enl.sted, or for the espi-nses incidental to the formation and equipment of the regiment of volunteers ordered out fmin th ? State. The officers have given much t ine and attention to the enlisting, drilling and preparing their companies; most of them have been engaged Irottt eail/ dawn to a lute hour of the night, and to exposure of all kinds, since the requisition made on their regiment. Besides, they have paid out of their own pockets the bills which have been presented them for printing, stationery, postage, lie , to a large amount. Tk.. ? .? . _ .

Since then, some papers have contradicted the statement, and one regrets copying tiie article fiom our columns. For the credit of human nature, it would give us pleasure to acknowledge our error, if one had been committed by us, but we m the first place received our information from what we deemed unquestionable authority, and since then the papers of lust evening mention other circumstances. One paper states, in corroboration, that the clothes of the lamented Dr. Armstrong were cut, and his watch, money, and other valuables abstracted. The meed ot punishment due to those guilty we leave to public opinion to award. If the other bodies were not robbed, we shall take great pleasurein so staling, when we are assured, by proper authority, that such is not the oase. Movements?The Hon.

There weie a number of wagers laid on time?3 43 being the minutes an.I seconds named?ell offered being taken. The general appearance of the horses was good, great care having been taken with them to inaure fast time ; but the wind blew a hurricane during the afternoon, which upset all the calculations of tho drivers of the horses to make them outdo their previoua exploits. There were a number of strangeri on the track, among whom were Hiram Woodruff, (the celebrated trotting trainer,) and a number of other choice sporting spirits from Boston ; besides all the turfmen of this city and vicinity. The horres came op to the stand, on being called for, where their drivers received instructions from the juJges of the arrangements of the owners of the horses governing the match;,and also, the positive assurance, that in cmc of infringement on the agreement, the penalty would It" ageimt ?uch violation ol correct conduct, lie. he.?

Mr. Armstrong?Incidents, die. The solemn and impressive services connected with the funeral of the lato Dr. Armstrong, which took place yesterday, at II o'clock, from Dr. Adams' church in llrooine street, drew together vast crowds of his admiring friends. Every available place of accommodation was srowd* d to excess long before the appointed hour; and the passages leading to the difierent pews were ad filled up with la*'tes?even tha space in the immediate vicinity of the pulpit was crowded with them. About quarter past 11 o'clock the procession entered the church, anil several ladies and gentlemen were compelled to return home, in consequence of their being unable to procure accommodations. Indeed the edifice was crowded in every nook and avenue during the performance ol ths services. After the entianceot the pioceasion, the c tffin was laid on a mahogany table, immediately in front of the pulpit. A solemn still ness reigned throughout trie entire congregation, and while the coflin was being laid down Alter a short interval ithe Rev. Dr. Skinner read the lessons, commencing with the 90th psalm, after which the Rev. Dr. Adams'delivored the address in a tone of deep and impressive solemnity, which added to the general sadness that prevailed throughout the entire congregation present. He said :? The event which this day aasembles us ii Ood's voice It seems it would look like presumption for mortal man to intrude his words on mah an occasion as this, lie should be still, and know that this was Ood's work. As an individual, 1 know not what to say My own feelings are too deeply inteiested on this melancholy affliction to allow me to spoak all that I would. My feelings would lead me not to occupy this place, for greatly would 1 prefer to sit amongst tbe mourners here present?to droop my head and weep With them I feel that I have lost a friend. Bnt we are all mourners, whether related by tbe ties of consanguinity or sot; wo i are all mourners, for in our hearts we are afflicted. The ministers of Christ, Iriends of the Redeemer, friends of missions and lovers of God, we have all lost e friend, and it is not because this friend was prepared for a better life that we mourn his loss?for tbe very qualities that prepare a friend for heaven,make him the more dear to ue. When the painful intelligence reached this city on Saturday list, stating that eeveral had been lost in the Sound, and amongst them one by the name of Armstrong, the apprehension was, in many hearts, that it was our beloved brother, who now lies a corpse before us. His duties alway s called him every month to meet the executive committee of missions,withwhich he was connected, at Boston. On Tuesday lest it seems thnt the storm raged and he was advised to stop, but as he wanted to he with his family here on Thursday, to celebrate Thanksgiving day, he did not remain He carried with biro a life-preserver, which, by bis family be was advised to tuke, and this fact gave a sort of coufidence to his friends, but it was soon asceitained that be was actually ?mon( tbe dead. The reverend gentleman heie e tered into a detailed narrative of the melancholy circumstances connected with the fate of the ''Atlantic," and gave a biographical sketch of the life of the late Dr. Armstrong, who it appears was 2d years on the missions He had formerly been pastor at Richmond, and also at Trenton. Virginia ; and neat, alter going through various gradations in the church, became Secretary to the American Bible Missionary Society. After detailing the particulars in relation to the cool and resolute calmness with which the lamented deceased had met with his fate?his suggestions at the door of the ladies' saloon of the ill-fated vessel, to provide blankets from the saloon, tear then in shreds, and bind them round their heads; he went on to state that a respected officer of the U. S. Navy, had been on board, and had been a witness of the Christian calmDess and resignation of the deceased Dr. A., in the last hour of peril. His last words were, " 1 hope we may be allowed, in God's goodness, to reach the shore wit'i our lives; but if not, I have a perfect confidencedn God's goodness. (The congregation, many of them, wept and sobbed during the recital of this passage) Scarcely had he uttered, continued the Reverend gentleman, those words, when the fatal wave washed across the vessel, and these were his last words, uttered before appearing at the bar of his God. The body was found, with twenty-Qve others, and was taken to Norwich, where there was much difficulty in discovering who he was, as tbero was no paper found on his person?nothing to indicate who be was His pockets wero cut off, [sensation] and every thing that could indicate who or what he was, was therefore tomoveJ. The Reverend preacher hereupon pronounced a high eulogy on the privato and public character of the deceased,whose unremitting care and the assiduity with which he always discharged his official duties made him universally regarded by all Alter addressing some consolatory remarks to the afflicted widow and family, who were the chief mourners present, he- exhorted them to bear the awful calamity that had befallen them, with Christian calmness and resignation; when be concluded his address, which was deeply affecting. The Rev. Mr Bidokr next addressed the congregation, and dwelt at length upon the many virtues of the deceased. The bereavement did not alone afflict his immediate family?it was a public calamity to the cause of missions and kindred institutions, whicn would be felt by all. It would be felt in Persia, India, China, as well as in the wilderness of the western islands of the sea He continued, Zion was smitten, and the hand of the Lord was upon them The reverend speaker hereupon dwelt upon the many amiable qualities that distinguished the lamented subject of his rt mark, and went on to say that it was intended as an affliction to their missionary friends,in order to induce them to work more assiduously and earnestly in the cause of the gospel; and after exhorting them to labor more earnestly in promoting the [ eacelul missions of the gospel, he concluded. The Rev. Or. Die Witt hereupon offered up the prayer, and The Rev. Dr Cox gave out the hymn, when the services were concluded, and the corpse was removed for interment, wo understand to Bloomneld, N. J.; after which tho entire congregation separated, deeply impressed with tho solemnity that characterized the entire proceedings. [From the New London Star, Nov. US.] There were four baggage cars on board, only ona of which reached the shore in safety. Only one amall basket of biacnit made up their aad Thanksgiving. Prayer meeting and religious services ware held during the day and evening. We are told that the Rev. Mr. Armstrong, whose body was brought up yesterday from the wreck by the Mohegan, disclosed his presentiments of the approaching disaster, shortly alter leRVing Allvn's Toint, by inflating and securing to his penoD seveial life-preservers. Many of tLe passengers owe their escape entirely to thoae article*, and on leaving the island they brought them away, ai meoientoea ol their deliverance. One of the survivors (the brother-in-law to the lad, whose father, brothers and sisters were lest) was married nu Saturday night last. The family were on their way to parches* a tarm and settle in the vicinity of Lancaster, Fa. ( apt (ullutn.of the U 8. corps of Engineers, while endeavoring to make hit escape, had his lelt arm severely bruised, by the falling of the upper saloon upon it, which held hira fast, until a ' breaker" raised it sufficiently for him to effect his release from hit | erilous situstion When he reached the shore, he was completely exhausted, and almost senseless.

May the landlord, Walter Edwards, be prospered, as bis nobleness deserves. W. L. New Lovdo.v, Nov. 18th, 1844. In compliance with your request, I will give a hasty sketch ol the circumstances attending the disaster and wreck of the Atlantic, as clearly as a confused and whirling brain will permit About halt an hour after the boat lait the-wharf and when the passengers were nearly all in their berths, a heavy sea struck her, causing her to reel considerably, and at almost the same instant an explosion was heard above, followed almost instantly by another, and then by a violent blowing ofl'oi steam. The explosion, in the cabin did not sound very loud, but was said, by those in the state rooms, to have been equal to the report of a cannon. This caused an almost simultaneous spring ol the passengers from their berths, and a rush up the companion way to the deck. For my own part, thinking it most discreet to avoid tho rush, and to remain a* ooi as possible, I remained in my berth till all the confusion had subsided. Those who Went on deck reported that, anJ the saloon, to be so filled with steam, that all tho lights were extinguished, and that nothing could be seen. Ilftma ratnpnaJ sspt'Snff that tha KniUrfl lra/1 hit vol ll nil some seeing the light ot the fires, as they were drawn from under the boilers, weie sure that the boat was on tire. For a few moments the utmost confusion prevailed among the passengers. Soon, however, one ot the officers appeared, and assured us that there was no immediate danger; that every thing possible should be dona for our safety; that if any danger appeared, we should be warned of it; that they had already got over the best bower anchor, and were getting over another,with which they should he able to ride out the storm/until assistance came, and we should be informed of the accident as soon as it could be discovered. Tnis.with the quiet, composed and cheerful appearance of the officers and crew, soon, restored confidence and order. When tho steam had sul ficienlly cleared away, to allow any examination, it was discovered that the stop of the steam chest had burst off, leaving her engine perlectly powerless. Two anchors were at once got out, as I said, soon followed by the third, and as she rode perfectly easy, and as 1 believe few other vessels ol any kind would ride, I felt no apprehensionof any immediate danger. In the morning, however, it was evident to ail that she must have dragged her anchors some miles duiing the night.and was still dragging them. Astern were seen the breakers at Fisher's Island in fearful proximity. Another anchor weighing some tons was formed liom large bars of cast iion, which were oa hoard, and thrown over, her smoke pipes were cut away, the broad doors, fore and alt of tlie upper saloon taken off, her wheel house knocked away, every thing cleared that could hold wind and which was niUTHUlO AIVVI iUi> OliO 1 VU? VC1JT COS}, VOIMCU HI SSfl ging, and all teemed to promise that, unlets the gale increased, she would ride it out safely. At this tiuie the Mohegan came over near ui, and wo were perhaps half a mile from the breakers astern. At about eleven A. M. a prayer meeting ol intense interest was held. A very general feeling prevailed that no human aid could avail us, and strong and ardent were the prayers which went up to the Source of all blessings for deliverance from the jaws of death, iuto which it seemed that the then increasing gale must soon drive us At night the gale still increased, and blew with tremendous violence. Our anchors again began dragging, and by ten o'clock tho stern of tae boat was rising and falling on the seas, which ran with indescribable fury, within teL or twelve feet of a rock. Here her anchors again held her, and thua we rode through the night, expecting every successive wave to carry us on the breakers, till about 4>? o'clock of Friday, A. M. Then a tremendous sea struck her, which made every joint and timber in her entire length, creak and groan as if in her final struggle. This parted her best bewer cable, and the other anchors were, almost in an tiDstant, dragged so that her keel struck two or three times on tne aand, and then on the rock*. One of the officers bad been stationed forward with some men, with directions te slip bar chain cablea, and cut har hemp, the moment her stern strnck. But all thia wai unnecessary; for all par ed like threads. Har bow at once came round to the southward, bringing her lar< board side at the North HilL She drove up ia hard, that her bow lay close on shore, and her item, (owing to a bend in the ahoro.) at some distance off. The scene that followed, 1 shall not attempt to describe. Those who have ever seen the almost instantaneous breaking up 01 a large vessel, ay me violence of the mi,' and heard the death ahriaka of the miiarable beings who were crushing and perishing in the aea, can form aome faint idea of it. Let othere bless God < for their happy ignorance. Suffice it to say that in fifteen or twenty minutea from the time her stern (list struck, ahe waa a perfect wreck, and all on board were either rejoicing in their happy deliverance, or lifeleaa in the aea. A majority of those who had escaped, went forward on the larboard guard, to a point just forward of the paddlebox and jurai>ed into the aea and swam ashore I was one of this number. Here gratitude forbids my neglecting to mention Mr. Wm Ritchie (I think that ia his name) one of the firemen ot the boat, who rendered very essential service to those who escaped at this point, at the risk of his own life. Of the conduct of the officers of the boat, and especially of the lamented Capt. Duatan, I can only say, 'twas meat noble trom the beginning to the end. Some censures have been passed on Captain D. for noi doing things, which it was supposed might have been beneficial; but in my own opinion had the things proposed by the cenaurers been done, aome of them w ould have been merely useless, and others, would have.resulted in an immense increase of the laaa of life.

Ftit Thuth?Kimo Jemv.?W* have ulrssdr given our opinion on the merit! of thie dram*, *? pioduced t the Park, with a* much full una* a* the (pace that canhe devoted to criticism in a daily journal would admit We have spoken of the historical relation* of the play to the age from which it* event! and characters are taken , and we have spoken of the fidelity and splendor with which this great revival makes the play a living and an embodied thing. Crowded audiences on all the nighta when crowds could be expected, can now boar testimony to the truth of our assertions. We have spoken of the merits of the peilotmance and of the performers, which taken as a whole and allogethtr, combined both much unity and variety of excellence. We h.>ee asked the at tention of the public to the play ibelf, on Jhe ground of Its historical and social value?we have ash'd their attention on the ground of its deep tragic import f but, especially, we have asked their attention to it on the g'reund ofita present scenic illustrations?wo have asked the*'1'<> look at these, not only as the most fascinating grouping*' of art, nor as among the rarest pleasure offered to any' who have the least perception of scenic illusion or pictorial beauty?we have aiked them to look at them for instruction as well as enjoymont, because we regurJed them as causing timos ef mighty struggles to lire ugflin, Dot to the l?ncy lone, but the eye alio , not a commentary on a greet age, but it* picture ; not as a lecture on it, but a living reproduction of it. Added to all thii, there ii Air Keen's King John, a finely conceived realization of a character very difficult of conception, in which the actor hai i?one of fhoie bold strokes to aid him that tell npou the mere nerve* of an audience, and that can cover the grosiest ignorance of thought aud the broadeit error* of reading, but iu which it i* his greatest merit, to enter inwardly into the subtle windings of guilt, cunning, cruelty, meanness, cowardice, and to presentthem in thesnbdned euergy a id the suppressed emotion in which life itsetf exhibits such qualities. There is Mrs Kean's Constance, asserted by consummate judges, who have seen Mrs. hiddoas, to be the noblest representation of the character siuce the reign of that queen of tragedy ; but indepeddeutly of Mra. Siddoue or any ene else, a a most eloqueaf outpouring of nature, a most impassioned exhibition of womanhood, in those affections that render womanhoed sublime and that render it affecting. These are the ' grounds on which we htve urged the public of New York to witness this drama, and they are no vulgar grounds. on these grounds we urge mem sun; lmii luoin are uw or two other* which we weald now emphatically add ? One ii, that owing to certain circumstances, the play, after the preaent week, is to be withdrawn, and then the opportunity of beholding the grandest, and truest acenic hiatorio picture ever set upon the American stage will be no more. We have the fulleit confidence, that could this drama have run its legitimate courts, the intelligence and taste of New York would have sustained it geoeroasly to the end; and that they would have fully sympathised with the cultivated enthusiasm exhibited in an effort so noble to rescue the singe from tbo barbarism and incongruity of fahe and inadequate accessories, to the refinement and harmony of correctness and grace.? Our belief is not shaken, but our hope is gene, for circumstance, aawe have aaid, render the continuance of the play impossible. The other ground, the last, though not the least, en which we urge the attentiou of our public once more to this play, is, we will not say the personal merit of .Mr. Kean in his production of it, or his performance in it, but the obligation which they owe him for his taste and labors, and which we trust they will not' be slow to manifest. The obligation is not a light one if wo measure it by what Mr Keen has done and risked. This play has cost Mr. Kean months of fatiguing mental study, and weeks of hard bodily toil, and when we consider that such were added to the regular occupations of a profession, in its most ordinary exercise, a wasting and wearing one, we shall not lightly eaumale inn mnu 01 expeDuiiuio ???- ---? hat borne a heavy expenditure of another kind. Mr. Kein, carried away by tne love of hit art, and confident in the appreciation of the public, baa ritked in this mattsr $t>000 at least, of hit private ferlnne ; no small fraction from any profettioaal competence; /or let mere vague report talk at it may, great fortunes, except in most rare cases, are not the rewards of pret'eseienal devotion to any of the fine arts?and there is none of them with which exaggeration deals to largely, k' with that belonging to the stage. Had the drama gone /aifly to the end, Mr. Kean could have hoped lor lift^0 repayment of the sum he expended, wK? 1'ttle or nothing for his talents and his time ; but cut ?rt as it is, in the midst of its career, he must, '{l? best circumstances, endure a considerable lose. - . would not tay thus much on subjects that may seek1 *n no way to concern the public, but thero are oocasio.^* when strict rules may be departed from, and we think this is one of them. During Mr. Kean's course upon the stage, great interest in him as a man has accompanied the great applause which followed him as an artist; and whatever unfriendly critics may say of the latter, we maintain that ho has nobly deserved them both. If we, therefore, leaving for a moment mere abstract critieism on the actor to make passing allusion to the worth of the man, we trust that tho public will sympathise with us, and pay their tribute io-uight to the worth of both. Tonight is Mr. Kean's benefit, let him have a generous greeting; let there be no space in the cup that welcomeo him; let it be a full, au overflowing hamper, to cheer net the heart of one ulone, but the united souls of two; a testimony to the purity of private virtue, and a recognition of the merit of professional excellence.
