The packet ships Mediator, Lord, for London, and Henrv Clay, Nye, lor Liverpool, will rail today. Their mail bags will close at hall past 11 o'clock, this morning. Singlo copies of the New York Herald, and also of the last Wttkly Herald, in wrappers, can be obtained at the office, in time for these mails. H dor Sim Kuropcan Art vires?What News I will the Cambria Bring 1 fhe steamship Cambria, from Liverpool, has been at sou five days, and we may begin to look for her by the middle of next week. In the mean time, tne Sarah Sands, the packet of tho 18 h ult. from Liverpool, may come in, in which case a H portion of the advices by the Cambria will be an ticiputed. It is the general opinion in this market, that the I next news from England will be, in a commer Cial noint of view full im no riant and as inte? resting as the last. We have heard some little doubt expressed in relation to quotations for cotton ; but the universal belief is, that prices for breads'uffs will bt sustained, nnd that orders to an immense extent will come out by the steamer for the purchase of grain for immediate shipment. Holders of breadstuffs, in view of this thing, are not anxious to part with their supplies, and ?rio-s are exceedingly firm at the very high ra-es current. The nature of the demand for flour and grain in Great En tain is such as to preclude the p??sib iity of any decline, of consequence. There i may be, as there usually is on all rising markets, from time to time, slight reactions; but the movement ot pr ces must be upward, ami they will, without doubt, reach a higher point than that realised in 1-137. The accounts we must receive by every arrival from Europe, particularly from England, in relation to the distresses of the poorer classes, and the ravages of fumine, must be terrible; and if the sympathies ol our people are not ' beyond being renohed by any calamity, they are destined to be excited to the utmost. We feel sa tisfied there is not that confidence placed in the reports which reach us regarding the condition of the people ol Ireland the circumstances warrant, and proper measures should be adopted to place beforw the public such information as will put the matter in its proper light Speculators in bread do not leave a stone unturned to advance their iutorer.ta, and philanthropists should be fully us zealous in advancing the cause of humanity. Thk Resumption or Navigation on tue Hudson J vEii?11 this warm weather lasts one week 1 ;er, the river will be open to Albany. The ice is n t very thick in any part, and several teams have h jken through at Albany, and been lost. Should t; river open by the middle of this month, it wil' I; ve been closed but about sixty days altogether, a i only about thirty days in succession, boats h -ving been to and come from Albany within the past month. The river has not been closed below Sing Sing this winter, the boats of the Erie Railroad Company having run regularly to Piermont through the season. The winter, so far, has been unusually mild, and there is at present every prospect of its breaking up. The number ol' days that the river has been closed to Albany lor sevoral years, averages about ninety. It is very seldom that the river is completely closed up for even half that time. Yonkcrs, Saugerties, Nyack, Pierrnont, Sing Sing, are accessible throughout the winter to steamboats and towboaW. Arrangements have been made by the numerous steamboat and towboat companies on the river to carry on the business this season to a greater extent than usual, and this magnificent highway will be covered with more splendid boats than ever before lloated 011 its ample surface. S. veritl new steamers ate ready for a start the moment every tiling is clear, for a speed of twenty and twenty-Ave miles an hour, and there is every prospect of a competition greater than ever before experienced on the Hudson, which is saying a great deal, as we recollect the time when owners of steamers actually paid people for going m their boats. Two shillings to Albany and eat yourself, will in the course of another year be considered too high It would be well for tba Commissioners of the Hudson River Railroad to think of these things; there is food lor reflection in these facts. OurExrjrts to Europs?The shipments of food from this port to Europe continue, and will continue to be large Ships, barks an! brigs are engaged ahead ; indeed, those on the slocks are taken up before they are launched. The following are the latest returns : ?

Vessels are coming over in ballast from England, Ireland, Ike., Ike., to take in return cargoes to Europe. Vessels are scarce at the South, to do the coasting business in grain. Thus we are on the high road to prosperity j but we must be careful. Nxw Ship ENTKRrms .?This very fine vessel, intended (or the Liverpool trade, under command ofCtpt. E iward Punch, was launched yesterday from the yard o! her builders, M ssrs. Ferine, Paterson 4c Stack. Willi the except, m of a slight accident, which can be repaired in a few hours, every thing was as complete and interesting as could be .expected Her lower and topmasts were nil etanding, which gave additional novelty to the scene. She loads immediately for her destination. Her capaci ies were given a day or two since. Smoni.A.R Sentiments in Ei;roi>k ?Our reader! are referred to two singular articles in this day'i Htrald ; one taken lrom the London Timet, and the other trom Li Dcbat Social, published ai Brussc' They indicate, to a remarkable degree, the progress of American sentiment on the other side of the Atlant a.

T?<JoiuHHoji of our State Prisons. >Vc have already {riven soma statistics of lbs Sing Sing and Auburn StRte prisons. The reports of tba boards of Inspectors, are more than ordinarily interesting, and we therelore refer to them again. In this report to the Legislature, the inspectors of the Sing Sing prison refer to the | restrictions platted by law upon the employment of convicts, substantially as follows :? Ws beg respectfully to invite your attention to X feature 111 tbo operation of the restrictive law ol 1S4J. vrr: ? i No convict who shall hereafter be sentenced to imprisonment, in either of the Slat# prisons ol this Stats, | shall. in such prison, be permitted to work, except as is hereinaiter provi ed, at any other mechauical trade thau thau that which, as shall appear by the certificate of the deck of the court in which ho was convicted, such convict had learned and practised previous to his conviction, or in the making or manufacturing of articles, for w bmh the chief supply for the consumption of the country, is imported without the United States.'' [Session Laws 1M3, p. 183 ] This law depresses the market value of our own pri on labor, and furnishes protection to the piiaon labor of sister States, and invites all the penitentiaries of the L'nion into competition with the free labor of New Vork. It is well known that New York city furnishes the largest market lor prison, as for about every other kind ol manufacture in our country. It is not so well known that this is the only btate that protects its tree labor from computation with its conviot labor, to any considerable extent. The convict* ot Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Jersey , Maine and Vermont are employed at atone cutting, bruiti making, chair seating and ahoemaking. Yll thii labor ot these aeveial penitentiuriaa in States for most ot whose surplus labor New Verk has been, and must continue to be a prominent murket, comes within the restrictions of the act of IU4j above quoted. The consequence is, that our iaarsletion in attempuag to piotect our own free labor from competition with convict labor, is in fact protecting te precisely the same extent, the convict latior ot this State, and in certain cases laying a bounty upon foreign prison labor. We will enumerate tire article ef chip hats ua an instance, are not manufactured in tnis State to any extent, if at ell. but are mostly wrought id the fcustern States, by prison labor and otherwise, and yet the State of New York furnishes a larger market for this article probably than an equal area upou any portion of the globe If our penitentiaries were permitted ,/y Jaw to engage in this manufacture. they would compete wuh none of our domestic tree labor, and might he enabled to furnish an article of almost infinite consumption in this State, without touching the interest* of her citizens except to advance them. Under theie circumsianoei, the undersigned respectfully invite your honorable body to consider the propriety of so modifying the law to which reference has been nude, to hunt is restriction upon convict labor to those branches of industry, the chief supply of wmoh, for too consumption ul this State, is imported from with out the State ot New Vork. Tho discipline of the prison nas materially improved within the last year, under a new system of government Formerly the powers of judging oflenc.es, determining . their penalty, and administering their punishments on tho cenvicts, were all vested in each assistant keeper. " This unnatural alliance of powers," lays the committee of the iosj>ectors to whom the matter was referred, "naturally and inevitably led to the abuses which defied the vigilance and authority of the inspectors. To remedy 1 these ubuees, if possible, and secure entire impartiality and coolness in the iniuistration of the prison penalties, it was pioposod by your committee that the duty of de- | termining the quality of each ctfeuco and its appropriate puuislimeut, should bo devolved upon the principal keeper exclusively." The officer who is witness to any 1 offence, is required to certify the facts, in his own hand writing, to the keeper, stating the exact time of sending in his report. This repo.t is taken at evidence of the offence, and the punishment ordered accordingly. A record is made of the punishment, its degree, aud the exact time of its infliction; and all these records are to be reviewed monthly by the inspectors. This new system works well, and has " brought the discipline of the pri hod into a more iavoraoro conoiuon iuhu 11 uui ?? m hibited before *' According to the Dew code of rulei aioi>tod ltrst September, the couvicte reader themseltei LabJe for breach of prison discipline to tho following punishments, "and to do olhera, underauy ptotence whatever, except by order of tho board of inspector* l*t. Privation of food?dd Privation of bedding?3d. Privation of book* -4th. Privation of tobacco?6th. Change of wot ??6th. Change of dresi?7th. Change of rations? 8th. Solitary confinement, witti or without light?9th. Shower bath?link. The lash, (which last punishment is not to be resorted to at all in the female prison ) The penalties of the lash and shower bath shall in no caso be indicted except in presence of the keeper." And " no punahment shall be so indicted as to impair the constitution of the convict, or disfigure his person " Formerly it was customary to send each new convict to the occupation to which he was expected to devoto hlmielf, as roon as he could be registered and dressed. The new rulos require that on the arrival of a convict at the prison, he shall be (tripped of his clothes and clad in Uie Uniterm of the prison; he is then to be examined by the physician of the establishment, wba is required to make a record of the elate oi his health.? The priaoner is next to be examined by the oletk and keeper, in presence of as many under keepers at can conveniently attend; his height, apparent and alleged age, complexion, and color of hair and eyes, shall ba entered in a hook kept for that purpose. All the effects of value found upon his person shall be taken from him, and especially registered and preserved, to be restored to him on his discharge, or subject to his order, under the general discretion of the principal keeper. " If the convict be net in such ill health as to requiro being sent to the hiepital, he shall then be conducted to the cell assigned to iiiw, where he shall be kept in aoli tude for 43 hours, interrupted only by the necessary attendance ol the keeper During this period, designed for r< flection, neither books nor employment ol any Kind shall be allowed him On the third day the chaplain shall visit him in his cell, a* d shall endeavor to impress on his mind, as well the wickedness us the danger of vicious and unlawful puisuits, and be shall exhort hiin to obedience and industry during the term of his service, nnd urge the utility of acquiring the means ol an honest support by labor on his discharge " The emoaut of clothing allowed each convict is to be regulated by the keeper or matron, under the advice ol the physician, the clothing to be washed once a we. kTho convict* may always, without let or hindrance from any one, speak to either of tho inspector*. Each convict shall be supplied wi h a sufficient quantity of plain, wholesome food, and an hour and a quarter is to be allowed for each meal, when it is made Incumbent upon certain officers that no prisoner suffers for want of food. Every prisoner is to be allowed an opportunity for wash ing his entire person once, aud his hands and face three times every day. The rule entitled " Convicts," con tains 36 sections, nearly every one providing for some right or privilege to be enjoyed by prisoners during good behavior The difference between the old and new systems of discipline is this?the old. forced what obedience it could by harsh treatment and the breaking down ot the spirit of the convict ; tho new, protects him in his rights, and endeavors to cngendor in his mind all the self respect possible, pointing to n bright future, when he hall be restored to society. The reformed system has been tried, and the happiest results have ensued. Tho reform is based upon a plan proposed by the late Edward Livingston. The promiscuous visits of parsons t whose only object is to gratify on idle curiosity, is com| plained ol by the inspectors, who think that there ought to be hare, as at Auburn, a tax imposed upon all visiters. Many idlers would thus be excluded, and a hand 1 some income derived from the sale of tickets to such as chose to purchase them. The visits of philanthropist! and acientific individuals is acknowledged, arid invitoi lions are hel 1 out for such to visit, as heretofore,without ! charge Among the new itries is one prescribing the solemnization of death in priaon by appropriate funeral rites. On t he death of a prisoner (except when caused by infections or contagious diseuse) the remains of the deceased are to be taken to the chapel, and there, in pieaence of tho convicts, who are to lie assembled for the occasion, an appropriate burial service is to be pronounced by the chaplain, accompanied by auch other services as may be deemed appropriate. Tho use of tobacco is now allowed to pnioners,contrary to former custom; tlio 1 quantity allowed i* not to exceed one sixteenth of a pound to each prisoner. There i? a long report upon tbii subject, setting forth the reasons for ordering the al 1 lowance, kc. ' The inspector fays : " Tho short time which hti | elapsed since this priviege was granted, has not furnished any such conspicuous evidence of its tendencies 01 operations as would deserve to be noticed here Ths , effects, however, upon the discipline, and upon the men tal condition ol the convicts, have been such as to satisfy every officer, we beliova, in daily contact with (hem nt they have satisfied ourselves, of the clear advantage of allowing the uso of tobacco fn moderate quantities tc these unfortunate beings, und that the highest ends ol penitentiary treatment are rather subseived than ot> strueted by tho indulgence "Its influence upon the discipline of tho prison," sayi Mr. Eldridge, (tbn principal Keeper,) in his leport, to which reference lias already beau made, "win almost Immediately manifest It ha* dill used n ineosiiie of contn.iment over a else* of our inmates, who bad previous 1> been a source ot constant uneasiness and anxiety to toe rrison authorities, and has, t sni satisfied, contributed largely to the unusual respect given by the convicts to the regulations and government of the prison during por turns of the past year. Tho matron of tho Female prison, Mrs. Eliza W. J am ' ham, in hsr report, states that about 33 of the convicts under her charge are now employed at manufacturing 1 hu'tuiis and trimming hats, so that this department,which was so long unproductive, is now in e fair way to sustain sn industrial reputation. The introduction of labor among the lemale inmates of thepriaon hae produced tha beat reaulta; the vioiatlona ot discipline are fewer, and j the geneial nmial character of thepriaon.higher than pre vious to the employment of tbc women While in the : mal- department tb? crC9t privilege of an allowanoa of tobacco hl? been granted dining the put year, so in the femalo department a great privilege hu been restored. ' The restriction upon (peach was removed on the let of I June, 1846, and the women are now allowed ta talk. There it a handsomo little library belonging to the fa 1 male department. 1'ha past year has been one of experiment and reform in the Mount Pleasant prison The experiment has been ' made to test the practicability of kind treatment towards prisoners, and thus far the results have been of a most favorable character, sua the inspectors and keepers feel encouraged to persevere. Of the 1021 prisoners routined at king Sing within the past year, 711 ware ua'.ivos of this oountry, and 310 foreigner*. About one third of tha native prisoner* are black. The itrisnti Troisier.

Theatricals. Pass Thsa rax.?Last evening witnessed the com- i mencemont of another great thakspeare revival at the Park Theatre, and the numerous auditory which osseinbled to witness the first representation, gives promise that the exertions of the manager to preserve the ascen , dancy of the legitimate drama will not be unrequited.? j We consider it unnecessary to ssy e word in this notice of the manner In which tbi? tragedy has been produoed, nor of the performances of the chief actors, as well those of all who participated in it, having on a former occasion dilated fully on the met its of tioih We are constrained, however, to state that the manager deserves the highest credit for his earnest dssire, as evinced on former occasions, as well as on this, to give a proper tone to the theatrical tastes of our people and elevate the drama to the standard which it deserves We believe "Richard HI." will be repeated this evening. Bowcav Thsatsi.?The nightly ruth at this popular I place of amusement is perfectly indescribable. The en ' thusiaam and excitement of the immense audiences I which ascembla have no comparison in the records of theatrical history. It is, however, not to be wondered I at, when so much is done by the enterprising manager > to please the tastes of all. His efforts are properly ap- 1 predated, und the encouragement he receives ia but just. The beautiful opera of " Cinderella," which bes been performing for the past two or three weeks, continuss ! rather to increaso in public favor than otherwise, on I each representation. The interest given to it by Miss I Taylor and the excellent members of the establishment, mske it the moat exquisite opera extant. We learn it ia | to be performed every evening until further notioe, no ; deubt in order to give all an opportunity to witness it. i Those who are fond of fine music, good acting, fairy I tableaux, and magnificent scenery and ataga appoint- 1 meats, should go.

Mr. Sands'beautiful and graceful stud of ponies, with their wonderful tricks, are alone worth the price of admission, to say nothing of the host of other instructive and interesting performances which are here to be seen as perfect as art and natute can make them. New York Opera House.?'This evening, the entertainments will commence with the tragedy of " Fazio,'> Mrs. Ada Stetson personating the character of Bianca. This young lady is very promising, and will become a great favorite. Mr. Fredericks will play the part ofOiraldi Fazio, a character for which he is well adapted. The entertainments will close with the popular comedy of "Charles II "; Mr. 11. P. Grattan sustaining the part of the monarch, and the character of Rochester by Mr. Fredericks. The company generally, are very clever, and we tiust the uptown inhabitants will patronise the 1 exertions of tlio lessee, who has rendered this theatre, both us regards ue.tness and comfort, suited to tha fashionable circles. Hkbr Alexander has returned to this city, and we , are informed he has accepted a most Mattering invitation from tbe dis'iuguishrl commander of a United 8tates man of-war. (the Scourge) as hit guest to Havana. We think it would cot be a bad plan lor government to engage this grast magician to go oi> to Mexico, and by his magic |>ower change Santa Anna and his whole army into lantern poles. Mr. Daviguon has just finished a capital likeness of the Hcrr, a copy of which is now before us; so well is it doue. that during the absence of the magician, we can imagine ourselves in converse with him, by merely glancing at his picture. Signor Blitz is performing to crowded houses at Philo j Hall, Pittsburg. JHuslcal Intelligence. Italian Overa.?" Nina" was again presented last evening nt Talmo's This opera improves upon acquaintance. It was listened to last evening br a large audience, who did not fail to bestow upon Siguora Pico, as Nina, their tribute of approbation. She was called out at the 1 close of the opera, and received such a " good night" as 1 must have caused her pleasant dresms. The singing was all good Signer Sinquirico, as Doctor Simplicio, who . lias more acting than any othsr character in the piece, except Nina herself, was in excellent spirits and voice, aaiaceed were both Beneventano and Benedetti. Those who have not seen " Nina," will not, of coursa, fail to go; a d those who have been once, will find it decidedly improved on witnessing it a second time Wednesday evming will rffurd an opportunity, as it is to bo performed on ttiat evening. Alhamura?The inimitable vocalists, Christy's band ot minstrels are nightly drawing crowds to tha Alham. bra. Their faithful delineation of negro character, their plaintive melodlea, and euphonious harmony, are very pleasing to the ear. The gentleman who plays on tha bones is exceedingly clever, and the performance of the C.owbeilogians and the burle.que cachuca, Is sufficient to excite the risible faculties of tne greatest sage. ! 1 is nothing lew or vulgar in their songs or wit?thi a very respectable class, and are every way calci I > to please those who patronise them.

The shin ments of com and com meal for the month of January thia year were very large, but there ia every prospect ol those for thia month exceeding those of last. The annexed table exhibits the value of exports for the month of January, distinguishing the destination. We see by this the positien of each country in relation to our export trade, and the relative importance of eaohMore than fifty per cent of the aggregate value of the exports from this port goes to Great Britain and her dt? pendencies. Of the exports from the southern section of the country a much larger per cent goes to EnglauJ Our export trade to Ureal Britain has been much increased within the past year, on account of the unusual demand for our breadstuifs the deficiency in the crops of Europe has created. From present appeara ices there is every probability of our foreign trade being more oue sided than usual, or in other words, more in our favor than we have heretofore experienced. Our imports thus far this year have been ex ceediugly limi'.ed, and from the account* received, we ahould judge that it would not be within sevaral mil lions of dollars of that for the corresponding period last year. | The number of packages imported into this port ia each of the past fifteen years, and for the mouth of January this year, was as annexed:? iMPoaTATiov or BamsH Dar Oeons.
