The most brilliant prospect is in store lor us. Cjngresg has lortunately & joumed. Our merchants, mechanics, manufacturers, agriculturists, and proteasional men are delighted with this, and enter j on the spring business with lighter hearts. Belore another month, all will be bustle and anxiety. Country merchants, laden with money, I will soon arrive to make their spring purchases. j i >ur city merchants will then have their hands < full. Some will make money?some will not. j Some will have their stores, or other places of business, thronged from morn till night, and make large profits on their sales; while the stores of others will be passed by, and their occupants will not clear expenses. The first will be : those who advertise in the public journals, the others will be those who do not. Advertising is reduced to a science now-a-days. The man who J 1 makes himself known in this way soon gets rich, i I He who docs not remains poor. 1 We desire to inform our friends and pa rons 1 th-it the Hiraid is the best medium for advertisers < to make themselves known, in the city of New 1 York and throughout the Union. Our paper circulates most extensively among those who want 1 to purchase, and we can truly say that five dol- f Iftrft ATnAnHpH in uilvprtiflinir in it will iirinir nrn- 1 tits amounting to one thousand or more. He , 11 who neglects therefore to employ it in this way, neglect!) Ins own interest. In order to do justice to all rwhose goodjudg. j ment induces thern to select this sheet lor adver- 1 tising during the coming business season, we ! have, at great expense, purchased a complete font ol new type, that will produce impressions so clear and distinct, that the oldest as well as 1 the youngest, will bo able to read them with case. In fact, the impressions will be so distinct, > that a persion who has not even learned the alphabet, will be able to see that the type mean something. On the fourth of next month we shall appear i in our new dress. Advertisers will bear this in j mind.

I 1 In another column will be found some ex- } tremely interesting news from Mexico, which was 1 received in this city yesterday. Our readers will < please refer to it, and draw their own conclusions 1 It establishes two important points. First, that < Santa Anna took his departure from San Luis 1 Potosi between the 26th January and the 2d of t February lan, with 21,340 troops?that he had reached Matehuala, a town about one-third of the distance from San Luis Potosi, with the avow- j ( cd purpose of proceeding to Monterey. Whether I 1 he has done so or not, is a matter of much doubt. 1 1 The extreme destitution oi bis force would render i it extremely doubtful] hat he would go!so far to attack the well paid and enthusiastic American sol- p diers under the gallant "Rough and Ready." If t he has done ao, however, he must have arrived \ long before this, and, as a consequence, a battle a has taken place between the two armies, and no < doubt Mother brilliant victory acquired by our arms. < The other point which it establishes is, that i another peace messenger, or something like one, i had been despatched by our government,with offers of peace to the government of Mexico. The peace messenger in this instance is Senor Atocha a native of Mexico, who resided here for some time. Whether he succeeded in his mission or not, does not appear. The announcement yesterday that this gentleman, that any one, in fact, had been sent as a peace messenger, created a great deal of suspicion; but, if our readers recollect, we published the fact of his having been sent?his name, and the purpose for which he was sent, in our correspondence from Washington, six or eight weeks ago. This is all important, but in addition thereto we have had communication with a gentleman direct from the city of Mexico, who informs us that the government was negcciating a loan for 9100,000,000, with every prospect of realizing that amount for carrying on the war. This loan on paper looks like a magnificent lottery scheme-, and the chances of its negociation are probably about equal to those ot drawing the highest prise in oae of the lotteries of the day. But we shall see. We will undoubtedly receive extremely important news from Mexico very soon. Tbb City Reformer# in the Field ?Eighth Waxd Primary Election.?We are assured that we were misinformed as regards the statement niur m yesterday ? paper, so far a* regards the candidates for Alderman and Assistant A'der* man of the Eighth ward Neither Abraham B. | Purdy, nor Daniel E Pelevan, are candidates for Mderman or Assistant Alderman, but are the : lpporters ol a ticket that will use every exertion to nominate such candidates, regardless of the contending cliques of the ward, as will give the most satisfaction to t electors: suoh as under- ' stand their wishes, snd have the nerve, if elected, ' to carry thern out; pledging themselves to go lor , 'clean streets," and for diminishing the expense t on "ice." Tiiis is the greatest move yet. Clean streets and economy in ice is all that we can rea-onably expect.

In this era of progress and Fourierism, we are aot surprised at any thing that occurs, which is different from, or contrary to, what we were accustomed to look upon as the regular order of things. Doctrines the most pernicious and ab surcK are daily broached by brainless philosophers and patent reformers. The wisdom and experience of centuries are disregarded as of no value. Tinkers and tailors assume to be legislators. The boy of 15 Is the man, and the man of 50 the boy. We go to sleep to-night, and wake up to-morrow in another century. These are the signs ol the times?roveltyand progress are the order of the day. Our age is what is termed an age of pro- j gres?; and nothing absurd, extraordinary or whim j sical ought to excite our attention. The latest novelty of the age is one that deserves more than a passing word, and we hope that it will receive, as certainly it deserves, more than ordinary attention. It is the power of raising the dead from the graves in which they were decently and respectably laid by their sorrowing relatives and friends, and instilling into them, by the aid of galvanism, a new life and a new spirit. To witness any thing emerge from what has heretofore been termed, though erroneously, its last resting place, would have astonished our pious and exemplary ancestors, but to us of this age of progress and reform, it is although, to be sure, something out of the way, a little more than we could lope for. So great, however, are the strides that science is making, that we have before us an instanee of its wonderful powers in this respect. We have heard the shaking of dry bones, and tow behold the "departed" just risen Irom the {rave, with the vesthnents of death around them, ike Madam Augusta in the ballet of " Giselle," uid see them take part in the affairs of this vorld of sin and sorrow, as eagferly as if they tad never died at all, but were still alive and ticking. Be not astonished. We have convincing proof of the fact, and now lay it before our readers?and we think tliey will agree with us that it is a most unaccountable and extraordinary resurrection?and that we may consider science is capable ol doing any thing. It is no doubt fresh in the recollection of the imblic that, two or three years ago, our citizens kid miucuDwuvie worn csiueu upon iu ueieurmc ind aid, witli all proper reverence and iiolemnity, he funeral obsequies of the political party .nown as the Native American party. Thecrcaure died from exhaustion, produced by over exrtion, and was decently interred at the public xpense, in the public burial ground. Many illatured persons asserted that its death was caued y gluttony?that it devoured at one meal five >aves and two fishes, and, being unable te di? est so great a meal, dyspepsia ensued, and ternmated in the death of the victim. The cause of its death, however, is immaterial t is sufficient for our purpose to know that die it < lid, and that it was interred, as every thing that 1 lies should be. It is with its resurrection that we i lave now to do, of which we produce proof sufficient to establish the fact. Here it is in the thape of an edict issued by one ol the departed heads of : that party Gkmkhal Executive Committee t February 10, 1847. J The following resolution was adopted Resolved, That the several Ward Associations be requested to convene on or before 18th March next, and I appoint three delegatea from each ward fo form a Mayor- i alty Convention, which shall assemble at American Hall on Monday, 2'Jd March, at 7 o'clock, P. M..to nominate a cabdidate for Mayor of this city. That the party is really alive again?that its ghosts are stalking through our midst in the day time, and at night assembling in the ball which they lrequented before their death and burial, is, although extraordinary, neverthless, clearly evident; but whether the influences of the galvanic shock, which startled its skeleton from its dreary tenement, will last very long, is not quite so clear. ;The numerous arrivals of Irish and other foreigners, may agonise it to so (icai on lAicni uni 11 may survive a snon lime lfter the influences of the galvanic shock shall ihall have been no longer felt; but wo are of >pinion that it cannot long survive. The graveyard smell attached to it?its lank and hungry irisage?its ashy cheeks and attenuated form, bespeak for it another death at no distant day. In "act, our candid opinion is, that it cannot possialy survive the second Tuesday of next month, [t will die a second time, we think, on that day, ibout sunset. Its surving relatives, however, will not take to much pains to inter it decently, is they did when it first slipped its anchor, be;ause it is an honor that they did not expect to be igain called upon to perforin. Neither do we consider it entitled to the honor. No well belaved corpse would seek to trouble the world( ifler it was once buried under the green turf. Steamer Oregon.?This splendid steamer, ! Daptain Thayer, is to be brought out and placed * ipon the Stonington line, in the course of next i week. She is to take the place of the Governor, ! vhich is to be withdrawn. We learn that Captain Thayer has been engaged for another season. This will be a guaranty I he sufficient to insure the confidence of the ' mblic, however strong the prejudice may be igainst vessels ot her class, in consequence of the hsaster which befel the ill-fated Atlantic. It is a fact worthy of record, and simply an act ?f justice due Captain Thayer, to state, that during i period of more than thirty years' experience in navigating the Sound, it has never been his misfortune to meet with any serious accident, attended with the loss of a single life. We lately paid the Oregon a visit, and were surprised to see the many improvements which have been added to her during the last winter.? These improvements have been made at a cost of $14,000; so we were informed by her enterprising owner, Mr. George Law. One thing of importance we noticed, namely? the construction of her steam chest and pipe, which is secured so as to prevent the possibility of its breaking, as in case of the Atlantic. She will now carry two 1| inch chain cables, each ninety fathoms in length, ai.d an additional anchor of 2000 pounds. This will give her three anchor?, of an aggregate weignt 01 42W pound?, sufficient to hold her in any part of Long Island Sound, in any sized gale. The New Postage Law. Me. Emioa The writer he* been in the habit of sending yonr paper, for some time past, to a gentleman out of the city, having bought it weekly at your office in wrapper. The person to whom the paper is sent is not permanently situ ated the year round in one place, whioh prevents the person sending from becoming an annual subscriber. In such care, would it not be well for the publisbera to make such arrangements as will relieve subscribers of this nature from the operations of the newpostage law ? For instance, the Week!y Herald, addressed at your office, may be sent as papers from the office of publication. H. All who purchase the Htrald, and mail it at this office, can have them forwarded with our mails at the old tales of postage. There is nolhing in the law to prevent this.

It may not occur tor a century that they will have an Opportunity of seeing any thing at all approaching to the entertainment they lumith. Bowcnr Theatre.?Mr. Clarke'* benefit last evening, was attended by a full house, as the attractive bill ; put forth for the occasion, could not fail to secure a large attendance. "Richelieu, or the Conepiracjr," was the first piece preiented, and Mr E. S. Connor, ae Cardinal Richelieu, who volunteered his servicos, peiformed with infinite ability. Noafie. as De Uoringen, Booth, as Chevalier de Mauprat, and Vache, as Joseph, were excel, lent. The character of Count De Baradas. by Clarke, was sustained with infinite cleverness. The whole entertainments of the evening passed oil'in a highly creditable manner, and the friends of Mr. Clarke rallied in full force here laat evening, paying a Just tributo to his talents. This evening will be presented the "Mysteries of Paris," ' Sixteen String Jack," and the " Widow's Vic- ! tim." The bill presented for this evening is excellent. OasanwicM Thkatbx.? The beautiful drama ef " Lucille" was piesentod hero last evening, in which Hamilton as Michael, Chapman as Tyak Schayp, and Miss G < Chapman as Lucille, performed with much ability. La i Siguora Mantin danced a grand Pus Seul, and her dancing olicited the most rapturous applause. The engagement of M'Ue Oceana hero, as also Monsieur Bennie udds con- ! iderably to the attractions, and the highly talentiy company who are at present engaged here, will iuiiy sustain the high raputation which tins Hxcellent and fa'hionuble thoatre has enjoyed aince its opening To night will he presented the "Actress of All Work," "The Rebel Chief," " Robert Macaire," and " Deeds of Dreadful Note," in addition to., the splendid dancing of SigQore I Muntin, M'lle Oceana, and Monsieur Bennie. Bowsar Ciacus ?The attractions here still continue to draw crowded houses nightly. Monsieur Castimer is still the rage, and his astonishing feats have been received with rapturous applause since the commencement ol his engagement here. The educated dog Buffer, trained by Mr. Williams, is an astonishing and noble animal?displaying a degree of sagacity tbnt would surprise any spectator. Cousin, the clown, is a host in himself, and Mr. Sergeant in bis Shakspearran characters has been rapturously applauded. Tu-night the bill will I be found highly attractive, and the French Hercules will j be repeated by Monsier Casaimer, who will also perform on iweivb uiuuio. Tom Thumb.?The General is about to depart on hi* American tour. Only two day* remain for thoae who have not ?een him, to put hia image in their eye at the American Muaeum. Hei? decidedly the lion of the day with the sight-seeking; and although he haa been permitted to kiaa royalty, ho has not the slightest diareiiah for republican buasing. By the way, ia it true, Mr. Thumb, that you really entertain serious thoughts of matrimony 7 Only think of Mrs. Thumb wearing those very trinkets which onoe aided to ornament the persona of the European queens, princessoa, und ladies of high rank. Only think of Madam Thumb's exultation when she fastens her scarf with the pin which Queen Vic wore, when her dear Thomas was presented. But the ladies bad best go directly and see the little-man; for, when once wed, there is no knowing whether the wed one will be so ready to dispense his " kisses sweet" Youno Alu andkr'This famous Necromancer, lately arrived from Paris, will give en exhibition of his surprising optical illusions, and astonishing feats, at Concert Hall, Newark, on Monday evoning next. Mrs. Mowatt and Mr. Davenport have gone up the Mississippi to play at Vicksburg, Louisville and Cincinnati. Mr. Anderson is still at Mobile.

I Well, here we are in the midst of hot weather that : would cause a long resident in Tophet te puff and blow, I but no air to cool us. Thick clothes are terrible bores, , but they have tq be borne for fear of a change, the weather being too unsettled to permit a change?of garments. It comes a little hard on the American public who are I fond of amusements, and are just now anxious to go to I theatres, concerts, etc., to see the attraction now provided ; but they do go. Collins appeared at the St. Charles Theatre, on Monday night, to a very fine house, and I made a great bit. He played Mr. McShane in " The Nervous Man and the Man of Nerve," and "Teddy the Tiler," singing " The Sprig of Shillelagh," and " Widow Mullooney." " I have," said he, " made a hit?the Sprig of Shillelagh hit the people a mighty hard rap, and both songs were encored." At tho end of the last piece he was called out and made a very neat speech. You have already expressed your opinion upon his acting, and, perhaps, you would nt object to my telllug you " a little bit of my mind " To contrast Mr. Collins with Tyrone Power, and say he is n't as good as he was, is unjust ? Comparisons are odious. Because there is only one sun, can't we admire the moon 7 or gaze with admiration on a brilliant star 7 " Av eoorsc," we can. Leaving, then, the lamented Power out of the question, and dropping that painful recollection as we would u hot potato, let us consider his own relative value. As an Irish comedian, he is certainly the best 1 have ever seen, and a superior vocalist. There is an easy, natural manner about his acting that pleases, and although his brogue is nt broad enough to block up a street,or as strong as his brogans.it is the real Dublin article, and " mighty Rui 'ale and illi gant." Every one is pleased with him, and he will play a spienaiu engagement. mere war a goun uouid ia?i night, notwithstanding the 'great curiosity there was to hear Lover'a first entertainment?of whom, more anon? and to night will be a crowder or I'm no conjurer The puhlio hare had tragedy, tragedy, trugedy. all winter? tuvjovrg tragedic, and it is a relief to hare a little sprinkling of fun and singing. Samuel Lover's entertainment la>t ovening, his first, was well attended, and by the right sort of people. The Armory Hali, which is very latge, was completely full. Everybody appeared to be very mucti amused, and warmly applauded the poet, wr iter and humorist. Kor myself, although I was amused at his auecdotoa and delighted to hear the songs, I have so long admired, coming from the lips of their author, 1 am constrained te say tbat entertainments oi that character are net his ftrte, in my humble opinion He lacks physical force to give efl'eet to his subjects, which are, howevrr, well arranged, and of a highly diverting and pleasing character. Hia success is gratifying to me?for 1 euteitsin the highest admiration of hia talents?as it must be gratifying and profitable to himself Mr. Placide is playing hia round of characters at the American, with success. The Ravels aro doing well at the Orleans ; and on the off nights, the opera is?ditto. The American theatre closes in two weeks. It is an| nounced that Augusta has lalt New York for here, but I have not ascertained where she is te dance. Tiabattoni and Finvet commence at the American on Monday, in " La Hylphide " The Keens are to be here soon, and will go to the tit. Chailes. This establishment merits the success which it receives, from the liberality that charac terizea the management in procuring all the available talent in the country, disposed to visit tha South. Plaoide is the only one they have lot slip, and that waa probably owing to bit coming at a period wb.s it was impossible to make an opening for him. Ludlow and Smith are such perfoctly upright men in all businese transactions, tbat they obtain the confidence oi the p-oiession? and what is moro important to the sons of Thespis, they always paid salaries even in the most disastrous seasons Herz and 8ivori unite again to-morrow night, and give a grand concert at the Armory Hali; and if it is'not a jam I am mistaken, as the preserved raspberries facetiously remarked, when forced into a glass bottle. 8. P. btickney, the equestrian- manager, and lessee oi the American theatre, hus also opened the National Amphitheatre with his equestrian corps, and been successful. He has managed the American theatre vety well this season, and been rewarded by a good business. There are other minor attractions hore, commonly called " aide shows," such as the inenagorie.the miti nrmbrij or the double bodied pig, and the flve-1'igged ox. And now, having posted you up in all the attractions of the theatre, permit me to bid you an affectionate farewell. J. E. D. City intelligence. Mstorsltt Coisvzistioi*.?

On Monday last the accused asked the doctor to exchange the $60 bank bill, which he did, giving him good money for the counterfeit.

News from Texas.?The papers from the it terior o' Texas, brought by the Galveston on Sut day, came to hand yesterday morning. We gather fro them the following intelligence:? The Austin Democrat of the 30th ult, mentions that company of sixty-three volunteers from Fannin count under the command ol Captain Taylor, passed throu; that place on the 17th ult., en route for San Antonio. Captain Taylor was of opinion thubMr R. P. Crui had succeeded in raising a company, and that he wou reach Austin in a few days. He represented that if t: men formerly composing Col. Young's regiment we paid off, it would be an easy matter to procure 160 mo volunteers in the Red River countries, but that the d satisfaction engendered at San Antonio last fail wss st existing. The Bexar company organized on the 13th ult. Walt n I n N,|aon I at liaiitar.ai and Henry Karl 2d lieutenant Capt Tay lor bi ought intelligence that a large compan consisting of 120 men, had been raised on the Upp Brazos. There is a fraction of a company In Montgeme county. A number of companies was raised ai organized under the impression that the term of servi whs twelve months; but upon ascertaining the true sta of the case, they disbanded. The Texan editors oi press the confident expectatii that if volunteers could be accepted for six or two! months, a regiment could bo speedily made up. Again, we would express the hope that Col. Hay* mi be successful in hi* mission to Washington. We find in the Democrat the details of an Indi " skrimmago," which is all the more graphic for t disjointed, rapid manner of the narrative.
