NEW YORK HERALD.! r >?w York. Halnnla}-, Krbruarjr I3.IWST. ? ? . - ( The Weekly Herald. The IFeek/y Herald will be ready this morning, at 8 o'clock, and will be the most valuable and interesting of any that we have ever issued. It will contain fall accounts ot' the condition of the unfortunate Irish and other European people ?the Queen's speech in l'dtliament, and the debates thereon?copious extracts from the French journals, depicting the condition of the money and grain markets?accounts of the manufacturing business ol Enuland?in tact a full svnon is of the nows received by the steamer Sarah Sands and packet ship Admiral. It will also oontain the latest news from the Army and Navy?Congressional and Legislative pro* oeedings?Washington correspondence?and a variety of commercial,"miscellaneous, financial, and political intelligence Irom all parts of the United States and me world. It will be illustrated with a graphic engraving of two philosophers preparing to enlist for the , Halls of the Montezuma*. This illustration is t vory local and life like. t Single copies sixpence each. They can be had j in wrappers at the coanter. > Alalls for Km op*. ' The packet ship Virginian, for Liverpool, will ' sail to day at noon. Her mail bags will close at half past eleven o'clock this morning. Those desirous of sending the latest American news to Europe, can obtain copies of the Weekly Herald, iu wrappers, at the office at nine o'clock. Important War News Expected* It will be recollected by our readers and by the public, that the first intimation they'had of the contcmp'ated attack by our military and nava| forces on the oi'y of Vera Cruz and the Castle of St. Juan ae uuoa, was in an article puonsnea | in'his journal sometime since. We received our ' information from a source that entitled it, in our 1 opinion, to implicit confidence, and we published it accordingly. It is pretty well known now that it was correct, and that our government are en- I gaged in making arrangements for one of the most brilliant demonstrations that the United States 1 ever look part in. ' Indeed, there are indications all over the coun- ' try that are of themselves sufficient to lead to this 1 conclusion, for we read of immense quantities of bomb shells being manufactured in our foundries , ?that the larg'-gun the Columbiad, recently cast j at Boston, and which is capable of throwing a , , bail of immense weight a distance of four miles, | , as weii as Commodore Stockton's two gigantic i , guns?the Oregon and the Peacemaker?being sent there?the great activity at Braaos San Jago ? t ie musteiing into service and sailing of the M vssaohusetts regiment, as well as the departure of Oeneral Scott?all these things indicate that a n-ov-ment is on foot that will, probably, end in ; a t 'emendous, end, perchance, a decisive blow. ! That ull these mighty preparations refer to Ve- . ra ^ruz and San Juan de Uloa, there cannot be a possibility of a doubt. If, however, there were any, the delay of the Secretary of War to produce the correspondence between the War Dopartment and Generals Taylor, Jesup, &c , is calculated to remove it. This correspondence cannot, as we are informed, be at present made pubic, without { causing great damage to the interests of the conn- , try, but that in ten days more it can be piouuecd ; without causing any evil consequence It is, of , course, then natural to suppose that all these preparations have reached a focus, and that every j thing is ready to strike atremendoiu blow. In about one month Irom this time we may ex- | pect to hear news of the utmost importance ; and j if, at the and of that time, the city of Vera Cruz, j and the fortress of San Juan de Ulloa, are not in j the possession of our arms,we shall be much mistaken. Costs at Law.?There is a great evil in some of ( our Courts loudly complained of, and we think, i justly so. We allude to the enormous amount of costs often expended to recover a trifling sum. | Instance the cases against the Corporation, brought by the lamplighters, where the amotuu claimed was a few dollars: and the costs, which. ! in a justice's court,would have amounted to about $20 or #30, in the Superior Court, amounted to : about $10,000 to $12,000, and this was, because by our wise law, no Corporation could be sued ' in a justice's court. Onr new constitution has remedied this evil, by allowing justices' courts now to maintain suits against Corporations. This heavy taxation of rests in suits lor small sums, is nowhere a greater evil than in our Admiralty Courts. And this offers inducement to irresponsible persons to prosecute claims there | against responsible ones, for the mere purpose of driving them into a compromise, rather than go I to the expense of defending a suit, to gain which j will cost more than to settle in the first instance. ' This is particularly the case in suits brought to recover seamen's wages, where, ia addition to { other means to harrass the ship owner, the ... in,_i ,u? ......mv,;. n? (lone when she is on the eve of sailing ; nnd the merchant must pay up, or have his ship, her cargo, passengers, kc., all detained lor some paltry claim. Tliis is wrong. All these inferior claims should l>e prosecuted in inferior courts; and where the owner resides in the place the suit is commenced, his individual responsibility is sufficient to secure a small demand for wages; and where the owners are non-residents, by the law of the State an at- , tachment may be issued out of the inferior courts, : and so much only of the vessel, her tackle and apparel, as may cover the demand, may be taken on the attachment. We see by the papers that Congress has the subject before them; and a bill remedying the evil, has passed the House, and is ' now in the Senate. We hope it may become a law. Those mostly interested in it are the shipping merchants nnd sailors; those interested to oppose it, are proctors in admiralty, clerks and t other officers of admiralty courts, and the land- | iora? 01 sauor DOaruitiK-nouses, wno prcui largely | by the present state of things, al the cost ol the . sailor and thip owner. Th* Capmji.atio.t er Monte hit. ?We insert in i this day's paper a statement of all the facts and [ circumstances connected with the capitulation of Mon'erey, from the pen of Col Jefferson Lfevit, 1 one of the commissioners appointed by General Taylor to conduct the conference on the part of the American General; which statement is confirmed by Major General Henderson, of the Texan volunteers, and Brigadier General Worth. A perusal of this document will convince the most prejudiced mind that the terms of the j capitulation, tinder ihe circumstances of the j case, were the most advantageous for American interests that could be made at the time ; j and will relieve Gen Taylor front the censures i t haf ha vp l?HPn th r^vsr., ?... i.:- 1?. _ - I uu iim nununci in tnai affair, by a portion ot our people and ot" ->ress. General Worth says emphatically,that ho not o ily counselled and advised, but cordially spproved the decision taken by General Taylor, as did every member of the commission; and Hands * ready at all times, and proper places, to del. ?.d and sustain the action of General Taylor, and participation of the commissoners. We trust wc may hear no more censures of t (. moral Taylor. It is very easy for people, thou sands of miles distant, to find fault, and say that an unconditio ui surrender should iiave been insisted on; but if those same people had been in General Taylor's position, they would have acted y rdy the same, as he did?piovided, they si ' v h? well how to aot as he does Inojatitttdk or Pavfkks.?1c ii well known :hat every nook and corner of the Alms House, it Belfevue, is appropriated to the use of he pnupors, who have been thrown in such numbers upon us for support during the pre* lent winter. Not only are the rooms of the Alms House proper, nil occupiwd, but out buduings have been fifed up, and temporary ones erected, in otder that none might go away unfed, unelothed, or unwarmed. One would suppose that this concern for thejr comfort, shown by our authorities, towards those suffering creatures, would awaken feelings of gratitude in them ; but to the shame of a few of them, at any rate, be it said, the ease is quite different, and the utrnoat vigilance is necessary on the part of the officers to enable thorn to prevent some of the inmates from stealing articles of wearing apparel, and other things, easily movable. A day or two since, a stout German, who had been for some time fattening at tho public expense, was about to leave the Alms House, and had already com -J !.. ? a.rnla u/haa tKa tnurnrr) f\i ilia AS. QienCDU III# ..VM W. ...www tablishment overhauled him, and through an in- i terpreter demanded what he had done with the clothes and other articles which were charged o him upon the books, ard which were in- | ended for his use only while he remained an nmate at Bellevue. " Me noting?me noting vas all the reply that could be obtained jy the steward, who, therefore, ordered him baek nto the house, where he was ordered to strip nmself. This he refused to do, and it was found necessary to resort to force to divest him ol his outer garments. This was, however, accomplished at length, when the grateful recipient of | public favors was lound to be encased in a suit i of clothes belonging to the establishment; this was taken off, but another similar suit appeared; this being removed only uncovered a third; and so,when the skinning operation was concluded, it was found that the fellow had assumed Ave shirts and three pairs of pantaloons; and a companion who was about to leave at the same time had se- i J sured an equal number of unmentionables. The ; females are also addicted to the same peculiari- ! ties, and it requires no small amount of labor on the part of the matron and her assistants to keep ! good their charge. The best remedy for this evil I , would be to punish severely every violation against law and property. We have not learned I that any of the paupers caught thieving as above, have been prosecuted. Let the law be executed, and it will be respected. LiKtn-knant W. H. Bbxwstkr.?We give plaoe to the following communication, in the hope that t will be the means of drawing firth some infornation respecting Lieutenant Wm. H.

N'gws from Bermuda.?We have reoeivtd by | the brig New Orleans, Captain Bramh&ll, twelve days from Bermuda, files of the Royal Gazette, Herald, and Bermudian, to the 30ih ult. They I contain nothing of an important character. ft ia said that government have determined to send ' out 100V more convicts to St. George's Station, and that they will shortly arrive in two large vessels, which ere to take the place of the three hulks at present at Irs- j land, and they will be sent?one to build the Admiral's house, at Clarenc* Hill; another to Hamilton harbor, to be stationed at the Lane, to carry on the work of building barraeks at Prospect Hill; and the other to St. George's.

St Lucia, which has hitherto been governed by the officer commanding the troops for the time being, is to ! have a lieutenant governor, appointed for the usual term : of six years, the legislature having agreed to provide a salary of ?1300. This change will lessen the salary of I the governor-general at Barbadoes by A'600. Tobaoo ? 11 is Excellency Governor General Raid visited Tobago on the 26th December, and convoked the legislature next day. The Grenada Free Press of the 6th instant say* : "A glance at the Tobago pupers enables us to say that the visit of Colonel Reid has had the desired effect, peace and good will haviug been restored to our fellow colonists, on which we beg, in all sincerity , to offer them our warmest congratulations A committee of the legislature of tit.

True Sympathy.?We understand that a num- 1 ber of our wealthy Irish citizens have formed j themselves into a species of relief committee, ' for the purpose of subscribing and collecting a 1 largo sum of money lor the relief of their fellow countrymen in Ireland. We are informed that already fourteen benevolent gentlemen have contributed the sum of five hundred dollars caoh? making seven thousand dollars?and that from the manner in which they have arranged and nre conducting the matter, there is no doubt that they will collect some twenty or thirty thousand dol- ; lars before the end of next week.

Peas Theatre ?The Kesns appeared last evening in go the tragedy of the " Gamester,*' than which we hardly <jj think there is a piece extant better adapted to show cfl be their extreordinary talents.

The car. rying trade of the United State* is nearly all on* way, an l vessels coming litre arrive in ballast. Even eur packet ships arriving, have very limited freight lists, and what they hare is lu heavy goods, such as transient ships usually bring out when our importations are to any ex tont.

American atooks bare been in no regular demand do i ' ring the year 1840, but the amounta offered for aula ham been but email, and hare generally proceeded frera do. ceased estates requiring liquidation. There has been no 1 fresh supply of stocks sent from the United Statea to Europe, and any increase el the foreign debt oan only arise from an increase of arreared dirideads, which ununfortunately is a debt more prejudicial to national credit than any issue of loaa< tyiien the engagements are regularly fulfilled. Tuking ifito consideratiou the reimbursement by the State of Ntfw J'ork, in the beginning of last year, of a portion of iuf debt, and the tmnsler for remittance of some stocks ?? United States, the amount held in Europe must be ,HiH on the decrease, altuough not to the sums extent as dm?<lff the two p.ecediog yeius. Prices are much the saws, a,N some instances lower than at the corresponding perid^ of last year, notwi'hstanding the amicable adjustment of the Oregon queatiju, which was then regarded as of an uncertain and menacing character. The result would have been different, bad the non paying Statea adopted measures during 18 IB for the introduction of order and regularity into their finances ; for there can be no doubt that many of the Stale debts offer tbe best security lor investments, whilst the stocks of those States wuich are in difficulties would rapidly improve in pries under the influence of a wise system Tne prices on the other . side of the Atlantic, in the absence of foreign demand, now regulate tnose in Europe, and during the continuance of the Mexican war, and until the wants of the government are ascertained no n arkad improvement, we presume, can be anticipated ?
