' I M spade they M In their trunk*, upon Ittnitif <h? t mount. The Cemmissianera of tue Hudson River Railroad Company have made the announcement that the three millions of stocks hare keen taken; and that the ten per cent instalment will be paid upby the 1st of March. 80 far as the interest! of this city are concerned, this is regarded by many at a very satisfactory announcement, but are fear that the interest of the stockholders will not result no favoi ably. Taking it for granted that the construe tion of the road will ultimately be commenced, we wish to make a few suggestions to the Commissioners, for the purpose of ensuring the completion of the road, 'if possi. tde. In the first place, we recommend a commencement of the road at Albany; by so doing the Commissioners will be able to overcome the difficulties created hy the early closing of the river, as navigation is suspended at Albany first, and gradually works down towards tbia city The three millions subscribed will complete the road from Albanyto a point about midway between Hudson ami T01 ghkeepsie; tin* three millions, which the Company are autlk .u ed til bo: row after the three million subscription hm been eapeDded, will, if obtained, complete the road from the point between Hudson and I'oughkeepsie, alludod to, to Kishkill, leaving between forty to fifty miles more to finish, which will require an expenditure o about three million* more. According to our oatimatesf based upon the experience #f several of our best engineers, the road from this city to Albany will cost ten millions of dollars, and the result will show which is the most correct, this estimate or that made hy the engineer of the company. Whan the construction of the Erie. Canal was com metutatt n< WiMCllnlnn : it - j,a? , ? .. ... - ?? .... vuo uiwcuiues no would have to contend with txfore it wu completed, and the obitaclea which would be raised in consequence of the determined opposition to it, prevented the total failure of that magnificent work by commencing it in the middle and working both ways?east und west?so that unless it was carried through no portion of it would have been of any use; and nothing but this wise policy compelled the completion of that work, from which the Stale now derives an annnal revenuo of several millions of dollars. We do not intend to make any comparison between the Erie Canal and the Hudson River Railroad; our only object in stating this case is to point out the only method by which the oommissione rs can, by any possi\ bility, complete that road. If they can raise money enonghr, after expending the three millions capital, to complete the road from Albany to Sing Sing, they will secure a winter communication from this city to Albany as tho river is usually open to that point, and this road will then have the same facilities on the river that the Erie Railroad have, and save an expenditure of at least 'wo millions of dollars, we might ssdely sa y three millions, as it is estimated that it will cost more than one million to build the road on Manhattan Island. These suggestions we throw out broadcast, for the benefit o f whom it may concern, believing that it will not only require the full amount named above, but tho most judicious and oconomical expenditure of that sum I to ensure the completion of this v ork. 80 many of theso i projects have failed after having beeu partially constructed, that we have very little confidence in any of these I modern movements, particularly when they originate in Wall street. The Erie railroad failed, after having expended about five millions of dollars, and no one ever doubted the feasibility ot that route. It became necessary to form a new company, and to raise a subscription qf three millions of dollars more to carry it along, and a further aubacription, or a loan of six millions more, will be required to complete it. There is a very great mistake ma le in all oar estimates and calculations in relation to tUe construction of railroads, and it is this grand error that produces all the difficulties and embarrassments in the finances of these companies. The bondholders Of nearly all our fancy railroad companies will ultimately come into possession, and run the roads on their own ac count, leaving the stockholders a vory poor chance of re covering a fraction of their investments. The immense debts these companies create, as soon as they get started, soon use up the substance of the whole concern, leaving but the mere shell, which deceives the public so long as it remains whole, and no one sees the little value they possess until the shell is crushed. The stocks of most et our fancy railroad companies are mere shells, and before many months some of them will prove so. It is our opinion that the stock of this Hudson River railnud will bu one of the greatest railroad fancies ever seen in Wall street ; and the bulls and bears will s^n have another football to kick about in the Boards of Brokers.

By arrival, at New Orleans, we have Tampico date* to the 8th inat., Brazos to the 6th inst., Matamoraa to the 5tb, Camargo and Vera Cruz dates to the 2d inst, the city ol' Mexico to the 29:h ult. A detachment, oompesod of eighty Kentucky and Arkansas cavalry, was cut ofT when thirty mile* beyond SaltiUo, by Gen. Minon. They formed an outpost, and were surprised and taken prisoners without resistance. Maj. Borland, C. M Clay, and Maj. Gaines were captured. The oapture of Lieut. Ritchie and ten dragoons, with despatches from Gen. Scott to Gen. Taylor, is ooniirmed. One account says they were cut oif between Monterey and Victoria, aa were all killed. The despatches were said to have contained the whole plan ot our operations. Another account says that ten dragoons had reached Victoria in safety, but titers is no doub( of the death of Lieut. Ritchie. Young Ritchie was lassoed and dragged across a cornfield. An officer of the Ohio Regiment, supposed to be Lieut. Miller,had been murdered nearChihaahua, and awfully mutilated by the Mexicans. Gen. Scott was to embark immediately on his destination to Lobos, a distance of 76 miles troin Vera Cruz. The attack on Vera Cruz, it was supposed, would take place about the first of March. Col. Harney was sentenced to be reprimanded, but Gen. Scott remitted.his sentence, and ordered him on duty. New# in r?a?rH tn Vnlnisfuara An Kas tl'A UIU Ondiaka is less favorable than was expectod. A detachment sent to their assistance, is said to have been made prisoners; and all the Volunteers of Capt. Magruder's forces had started for the wreck, and the whole brigade were said to have followed. The main body ot the volunteers who were wrecked, had certainly not reached Tampico ; and at last accounts from them, were engaged in conflict with a body of Mexicans, far superior in numbers and equipments. The U. S. ship Statesman, Prentice and Catha- * rine, were off the Bar at Tampico on the 9th instant, filled with troops. The Mississippi volunteers ware on board of the Statesman, suffering terribly by sickness, and dying daily in great numbers. The New Yorkers, on board of the Cathariue, were in good health. About 7,000 troops were st Tampico, of regulars and volunteers. Lieut. Gibson, of the recond artillery, died on the 6th, ol lever. The rumored assassination of Santa Anna turns out to be unfounded, so also does his active opposition to secure the church property, though he daily appears to be a dead letter. Last accounts state that he had left for Tula, at the head of the main body ol forces. Gen. La Vega had been appointed to command Vera Cruz. The Congress of the State of Vera Cruz had called on its people to resist at all hazards any invaiinn nf th? A morinoi.a The Congress of the State of San Luis passed , a decree authorizing the Governor to negotiate ; a loan in forty-eight hours, by force or volunta rily. I There are some further accounts of the capture of Chihuahua The Mexicans admit that over 1 one hundred of their numbers were killed Another account mentions that the action took place in the immediate vicinity of El l'asso De1 Norte, in which our troops were en'irely successful. This is the Mexican report, and it states that the Americans were in possession of El Passu, with GOO cavalry and 400 infantry, on the 27lh ultimo. The lots on each side is not stated. The Vera Cruz Indicador of the 81st ultimo, says Gen. Savage meditates an attack en Tampico, and yet the Mexican troops are all represented to he in a deplorable situation. The same paper contains a communication from Santa Anna, declaring that although he has entirely renounced the Presidency, ho will oppose with all his strength, any attempt to disturb tha peaceable state of things in any State in the I Republic. 1 0rp We receiver! a despatch from the telegraphic office last night written on tissue paper, which was so illegible that we could not decipher I it. The portion* legible, however, refer to the l attack ol the Mexican*on the shipwrecked Louisiana volunteer* under De Hussy. The Mexicans under Gen. Cos were 1,000 strong; they demanded the volunteers to surrender; this was refused, and an engagement ensued, which lasted until 10 o'clock at night. The result of this encounter is unknown. Pillow's brigade was sent by Gen Patterson to the r? lief of the volunteers; but it is probable they would bo intercepted by a strong force of cavalry and infantry, despatched by Gen. Cos for that purpose. WxsNianTON, Feb. 36, 1(U7.
