Single copies 64 cents each, or $3 per annum, in advance. Tit* tautest front Mexico?The Mexican Preparations for the Bombardment of Vera Crux. We have received the Diario de la Havana, and the Diario de la Marina, to the 27th ult. They contain intelligence from Vera Cruz to the 7th, inclusive. The authorities of the department of Vera Cruz were expecting an attack from tho Americans, and were taking active measures to resi >t them, arid were fortifying the National Gate and another point called Chiquihuite. The Slate legislature of Vera Cruz, assembled atJalapa, had authorised tho Governor to absent himself from the seat of government, for whatever point he thought he could most advantageously act for the defence of the State?they also clothed him with extraordi niry fjuwvfo. . Senor Kejon has finally been appointed Minister ol Foreign Affairs?Senor Canaliso still re- j mains in the War .Department, and "Senor Do. blado, Ex-Governor of Guanajuato, lias been appointed to the Judiciary. The question of supplies is the one that has as yet been the principal one with both the government and Congress. Our readers will remember that Congress, on the 11th ult, passed a law authorizing the government to hypothecate t or even sell, the property of the clergy and mortgaged possessions. They will also recollect that part of this department, (Vera Cruz,) and the ! legislatures of the other departments, protested j against this law, and petitioned lor its repeal; and they will also recollect that up to the end ol January, the government hud been unable, under tins law,to procure any supplies whatever. In the journals before us,we see that these protests have been continued, and the bishop ofMichoaean has been very prominent among the protestors. We also read that, Santa Anna himself, who at first, in some private letters, seemed to accord with this law, on the 2fith January, in replying to a mani i/l.i?.ti ?r.. oivu helnw. that was sent to him at San Luis Potosi, appears fo have changed his mind. It appears, then, from this, as well as other indications, that Congress was about to devise some other method of raising means, and with this view there had been a proposition presented to Congress to repeal the last law, and substitute lor it a loan from the clergy of $450,(W0, monthly. There was also pending, on the 2d nit., a resolution by which government was to have a carte blanche to raise means by any mariner that it could. But besides all these projects, one thing is positive, that Santa Anna declares, in the abovementioncd document, to Congress, that "he had found it necessary to seize 98 bars ol silver, mostly belonging to Spanish merchants in San Luis," and he moreover says, "I have again given my own individual security lor this, as far as I can." It appears, moreover, from references in this letter, that he had previously taken other sums under the same guaranty. On the other hand, the Secretary of War states to Congress on the 28th January, that ho had very recently remitted $35, iHIO to the army. As regards the war, wo will, in the first place, notice the previously referred to. In this, he answers the accusations of apathy which have been brought against him. He depicts the sad situation of the army under his charge, their wants, mora! and physical; his own conduct at every period ; his disposition to retire to private i(e, and his willingness to undergo exile, if necessary; and finally, Iiia resolution of marching against the enemy if he is not interfered with. This same resolu'ion was expressed in the communication which he sent to Congress along with this document. On the 27tli January, he issued a proclamation to his army, which w<? have before given. It appears to be beyond doubt, that on the 27th January, the army commenced their march, apparently in the direction of Saltillo and Monterey, towards which he had already advanced some brigades. Tbo brigade which whs at Tula on the 25th January, under the orders of General Valencia, had been transferred to .those of Brigadier General Ciriaco Vasquez. 'l'he ImnilKrstlon haw?What la It ??What do our Legislators Intend to do with It 7 Legislatures, as well as individuals, frequently exhibit a lamentable want of knowledge and experience in matters that children, even, are presumed to be acquainted with. We have ati instance ol this in some recent proceedings of the Legislature of this State, in icgard to the bonding and taxing of einigiants arriving at the port ol Mew York, which we aro confident will furnish pretty strong evidence that the gentleman who introduced it was either determined to strike a severe blow at this city, or is lamentably ignorant of the matter that he desired to legislate upon. The bill which this legislator introduced, for tho purpose ol relieving the city and folate ef New York from the burden of supporting pauper emigrants, imposes a tax of one dollar a head, as a commutation fee, on every emigrant arriving at this port, and also re <1 uires a bond with two sureties, each of whom must justify in the sum of five hundred dollars over arid above all previous bonds, conditioner lor the support of the aged, infirm, decrepid anc >uch as are likely to become a permanent charge upon the city, such bonds to extend to ever] county and town in the State, and last in each case, wo believe, for ten years. Ifthisisnot u specimen ol what is called wilt 1 legislation, then we never saw or heard of one Tnis bill is no doubt predicated on the foolish arit s lly report that has been publiflied pretty largel in the newspapers here and in the other parts o the State, to the effect that the alms house of thi city is filled to overflowing with a mass ol foroi^'i paupers, whose supp'ort is a serious tnx on ou jo highly taxed citizens. If it is based on thi ? port, it rests on r very shallow foundation. Ir first plnce, we arc informed, that one yea rii another, the propoition ol freshly urrivei % * I migrants in our alms bouse, to all others, is not J more than one half, if so many. In the second place, we are informed, and wo have no doubt that proof can bo adduced to support the assertion, that for the last ten years, the entire cost to the city of New YerW, for the support of foreign I aifc ters, has not averaged near fifty cents a head on the number of emigrants arriving here each year. Proof ran be adduced to substantiate these premises What, therefore, becomes of the rumors of the great burdens we suffer for the support of foreign paupers'? What is said of the benefits of emig.ation to New York, and to the country at large 1 What would the United States now be, if thero never had beon any emigration from the old world 1 Who landed at Plymouth, two hundred years ago, but emigrants! What becomes of the large amounts of specie that emigrants annually bring o the United States! The returns of the mint will show tb at an immense amount of foreign coin has been annually recoined in the Am erican mints. lAnd where did it come from ! Surely, thero has almost always been a drain of specie on this country, until within the last s:x months or year, in consequ ence of the balance of trade being agaiast us. These large sums in lbr??lirn PnUi. mint thpmfnrti U a ua Koun VrnMinlit hither by emigrants. No'hing is said on this side of the question; but the dark side is taken, and a bill based on it that will seriously injure this city, if it should become a law. These, however, are not exactly the objections } we have to its passage in the Senate. We be- j lieve it has passed the other house. The objec- I tions are numerous. First?The province of deciding upon who are j likely to become a permanent charge on the city is vested m four or live commissioners. These commissioners may decide that a whole ship-full are likely to become a permanent charge; and ! how could bonds of the nature required be given ' in a case like t'latl We venture to say there are not a di /en men in the c'ty who could command ; so great an amount of security as will be required | by the new law or bill. An Astor could not fur* : nish it. Secondly?Should this bill become a law, it j would be difficult to find any one to receive con- : signments of ships with emigrants. Thirdly?The State at large, as well as the city, would lose the benefits of emigration, aud not be relieved of the burden of foreign pauperism? j if burden there is, which we doubt?because no : one here would engage in the business. Fourthly?All "emigrant ships would go to i Boston, Amboy, Quebec, or other :places, ' and their passengers ultimately find their ' way to this city, which they know is the focus o! America; and such of thein as arc incapable of providing for their own support, would, in reality, become a burden and a charge upon the State or ciiy, without either having a remedy. Fifthly?Its passage would do infinite injury to the city, by diverting a legitimate portion of its trade to other States. These are a lew of the objections to this law passing the Senate in its present shape. We are confident that they are well founded; and we hope that the Senate will pause and reflect on what would be the consequences of their passing it. We are informed by one of our most respectable emigrant agents, that he has declined to contract for emigrants until the late of this bill be known, if it pass without the umendment introduced by Mr. Harris, of the Senate, ho will decline the business, and establish himself in Amboy or Boston. Mr. Harris's amendment proposes that a tax of one dollar be levied on all emigrants, i and appoints commissioners to expend that fund . ... >-I - u uuj thorises the commissioners to provide for rei binding to any city, town, or county, in ! the State, any expenses they may sustain | in supporting these foreign paupers, and in ease *nv of the emigrants are idiots, lunatics, blind, i maimed, or so infirm as to be incompetent i to support themselves, it requires the commisoneis, in addition to the commutation money, to 1 require a bond in the penalty of three hundred dollars, conditioned to indemify every ci'y, town, and county in the State from the expense of supporting such lunatics, idiots, &c., at any time within five'years from date. We are as much in favor of the passage of this amended bill, lor the want of a better, as we are opposed to the passage of the original bill; and we sincerely hope that the obnoxious bill will never become a law. The bill of Mr. Harris, unlike the other, will not deprivo this city and State of the benefits of emigration. It docs not leave it discrei tionary wi'h the commissioners to say who are, or who are not likely, to become burdens on the city ?r State. The commissioners could not under this bill, as they might under the other, declare a stout, hearty farmer, with abundance of health, hone and sinew?a man who, in himself, is intrinsically worth five thousand dollars, because his labor would produce as much as the interest of that sum would amount to?a person likely to become a burden on the city or State. This bill will, besides, amply provide for all exigencies, and relieve us from all burdens of foreign pauperism. It will secure to us the increasing trade of emigration, and promote the prosperity of the State at large. All classes ol our citizens, native and adopted, arc in lavor of it?as well as the shipping agents, who declare that they have no objection to give the required bonds for the maintenance of idiots, lunatics, or infirm persons. We rely, at any rate, on the good sense ol the Senate to defeat the bill, which places such restrictions upon emigration as to amount to a -v prohibition. The " IUttlb or Saltillo."?We are of opinion, after looking closely at the accounts, that the reportud battle between San a Anna's forces andGenernl Taylor, has not comc off. If such . battle has been fought, the result will have been one ol victory to General Taylor, of course; but we are confident no engagement, to the extent mentioned, at least, has taken place. By the last accounts, General Taylor had taken tip a position eighteen miles south of Sal1 tillo ; he must, therefore havo retreated from that station t? Saltillo, and thence to Monterey, pursued by Santa Anna's forces. Such a retreat never would have been undertaken by General ; Taylor. It must, necessarily, have been disastrous; because it would have been entered upon under the impress on that his force was incomI petent to protect Saltillo against the forces ol Santa Anna. General Taylor never would have allowed himself to entertain such an impression; i especially without being previously defeated This, the intelligence gives us no reason to be lirve. The retreat in question, therefore, cannot with probability of reason, have been made bj i him. ' I As the accounts state the battle to have beet (ought between Saltillo and Monterey, and that i i was won by General Taylor falling upon thi weakened centre of Santa Anna, Gen. Taylo I must not only have retreated from Saltillo withou 1 cause, but Santa Anna's ariny must have hat J room to be in lino or order of battle in the narrov t passes between Monterey and Saltillo; an irnpos i sible circumstance, Irom the nature of the groutu | between those places. 1 The impossibility that General Taylor will hav retreated before an enemy that had not defeatet 1 him, and the other impossibility that the batlli y wis won by encountering the centre of the Mcx P' lean army in a delile road, proves the battle to b 8 a mere rumor. 1 It is not at all unlikely that the report of sucl r a battle has originated with the Mexicans, as i 8 ruse to draw attention from some point where i 1 is intonded they shall appear in force. T j It may be possible that it is part of < Ion. Scott' I I plan to have Gen. Taylor tall back upon Mon terey, and that he may have received instructions to do so. We do not think, however, that Gen. Taylor would retire in the view of an advancing r enemy, unless for the parpose of drawing the lat- c ter into a disastrous position. In the last men- | tioned case, the strategy of the] mnnteuvre will * , account partly lor Gen. Taylor's success, as well t j as for hts retreat and adoption ol the battle ground. We do not discover in the accounts any reason to believe that Santa Anna has left San Luis for a Saltillo. We expect he will lie found by and bye 1 to be in an opposite direction. We have no faith in the Mexican report of the evacuation of Vera ^ Cruz. 1 - 8 Ship Building In Ifcw York?Activity in 1 our Ship Yards. f The unprecedented demand lor vessels of s all descriptions, but especially for large ones? 1 the immense profit resulting to owners from t their employment, und the prospective business of our mercantile marine?are causes which result in the greatest activity at the * *'Mp yards in this city. All ol our ship build- ( crs have their hands full, and are continually ( turning away orders, which they cannot procure ^ hands to enable them to fulfil. The government j have talcen all the vessels their agents could pro- t cure, and those engaged in the merchant service are sought at almost any price, either purchased or chartered, lor the com trade, which is carried c on to such an extent between this country and Europe. Foreign governments, seized with ad- i miration at sight of our floating palaces, are anx- 1 ious to avail themselves of the benefits of ouc * skill in naval architecture, and send in proposals J of the most liberal kind to New York ship builders. All these things co.-nbined, have.brought about , a perfect mania for ship-buildirig. There is a con- j slant rush to the olilces of the Dry Dock. The ? yards are filled with materials, upon which the 1 carpenters arc at work The berths in the yards \ along a line of the river, are all taken up by the < rising labric", and the din of a thousand axes, J hammers, saws and mallets, is heard in ad- f mirable confusion, by the visiter whose ear is not t' dead to the tremendous clatter. In consequence t of the activity to which we allude, demands, in ( some cases exorbitant, have been made upon ^ the builders by dealers, in the material which is requisite for the performance of their contracts. Lumbermen demand the highest prices for ship timber, and every farmer who has a tree for sale [ j refuses to part with it except at an enormous t price. Woikmen being in demand, not only hero , but elsewhere, ask and receive the highest rates of wages ; consequently ships built at the present t time cost much more than formerly. A ? more definite idea of what is actually doing J may be gained from the list which we give J below:? i! VESSELS BUILDING IN NEW YOBK. t Wm. H.

They are rated at 44a, but are ierced for flu each. The Potomac carries at present 6fl [una, and tho Raritaa 6i, being two leaa in each gang, ray on the spar deck. This makes considerable differnce in estimating the number of (tuna in the Oulf Squadon. MAN-OK-WARS-MAN. Ma. F.ditob Si a-.? It was the V. S.

Of all this we were aware; we knew lhat our ressels were rated below their actual armament. The Ohio carries mere than seventy-four guns, ind so on. We took the "rate" and gave our ist accordingly]; but the probability is that the orce in the ('Ulf is equal to three hundred and eventy-five to lour hundred gur:s. It is not likey, however, lhat the whole of it will bo brought o bear upon the city and castle at the same time. News ihom Alio Janeiro.?By the bark Mac?ni Smith, wn ure in receipt of files of he Jornal do Comercio and the O Mtrcantil up to he 25:ii January. There is nothing of interest in hem, save that the message of Rosas, of Buenos Lyres, to the House of Prepresentatives there, tad been received in Rio, and from its violence owards Brazil had created some sensation. tThey do not mention a word about M.r. Wise, )r his relations with the government. The Election in New Hampshire.?We are ndebted to Mr. Cioyes, of the New Haven route, or the Boston Post of yesterday morning. It fives the following returns of the election in New iampshire :? Our returns continue to he gratifying. The allied irmy, wh-gs, Sic., Sic, has undoubtedly mot with a severe check, if not with a total defeat. We have the vote or governor in 175 towns, in which we make this result, ncrease in democratic vote, 2,600; increase in vets for ill others, 016; democratic net gain, 1,684. This gives ion. Jared W. Williams more tnan 600 majority, alter leducting the 1.171 majority of last year ngainst him. rhe Concord Patriot slip is confident of bis election. Jf the five councillors our friends have most probably ilected thruo, namely.?Jonness, in Rockingham; Jones, n Hilisboro; and Ferren in Orafton and Coos. The ienate has twelve members, and the democrats have probably elected seven, the allies two, and no choice in hree districts. In 164 towns, according to our count, he following representatives are elected. Democrats, 117; all others, 107. And in these towns there is a denocratic net gain of 31. It is probable the democrats will have an effective majority in the house. Theatricals. Pare Theatre.?This evening will conr.iuae ino re ingagement of Let Jeunet uameutet at the Park Theitre, and will positively be the last of their appearance n thia city.

This grand romantic spectacle was received with much applause, and the entire cast acquitted themselves in a highly creditable manner. Md'lle Dimier and Monsieur Bennie, next danced a grand "Pas de Deux," and elicited the most unbounded applause. This distinguisded and popular lady, as a danteute of high standing upon the public boards, has added considerably to the attractions of.this excellent theatre, and her engagement, in connexion with.that of Mile.
