I NEW YORK HERALD.' H Ktw Vo THur.dajr, April I, IH4T. K?nr*Fwm hurope. I The steamship Sarah Sands probably left Liver pool on the twenty sixth of la* month, and is now about half-way on Iter voyag*- She will bring I twenty-two days later intelligence from the other I side ot tho water, and will no doubt arrive here in the course ol next week. Her news is anxiously I look- d tor by the mercantile community. I We expect, however, to receive later intelliI genco than what we received by the last steamer I through the medium of packet ships, some of I which, judging by the prevalence of easterly j winds la'ely, must be near shore. The packet ship Silvie de Grasse arrived here the day before yesterday, alter a passage of twenty-eight days from Havre. The same winds which favored her j have doubtless influenced others. After the Sarah Sands, the first steamship from t England will be the Cambria, of the Canard line, f which will leave Liverpool on the fourth of this 0 month. She will bring five days later news than s the Sarah S rods will 0 Immediately after late news arrives, whether u by packet or steamship, we shall issue an Extra ? Mkr/lld. ( The Olorlous S.WI frsa tlM Arm jr. , We publish in this clay's paper tha whole of , the important news from the seat of war, toge- a ther with the list of the killed and wounded, as , c known. ^ This news was obtained by us several hours in J, advarou of the mail, and at a great expense. As j soon as we heard o( tha damage to the Southern 1 line ortelegiaphs by the late storm, we arranged a , Southern express, in anticipation ol this news? and sucoeeded in bringing it here ahead of the i mad*. The different railroad lines, particularly ] the Wilmington and Delaware line; also E. S. , SandforJ, Esq., of Adams It Co., made the most praiseworthy exertions to send the news to this ! city in the quickest time possible. We publish on the outside, to accompany the details of the glorious intelligence, amapoi the oountry where this great battle tork place. It was drawn by the lamented Col. Yell, ex-Governor of Arkansas, who, with many other officers fell in the last great battle. It is a correct topo- ' graphical view of the battle-Aeld. Wu have no room to-day for comment. We shad merely say that our officers and soldiers must have fought with desperate fury, or they , could not have achieved so brilliant a victory | against such overwhelming odds. j i The Corn Trade of the Culled States?Its Pre- j < sent and Prospective Condition. The greatest anxiety exists in this market tela- ! tive to the resumption of navigation on our lakes, ! rivers, and canals. The season is very back ] ward, and the cold weather holds on longer than ( 1 usual. Last year the Fndson river was open on ; the 18th March; it is still closed in the vicinity of 1 Albany, and from the appearance of the weather, , there is no immediate probability of its opening ' Last year'navigation on the canals of this State < was resumed on the 15th of April, and on the upper lakes on the 4th April. We regret to learn from the canal board that the canals this year | will not be opened until towards the close of the month. Under existing circumstances this is particularly unfortunate. Our stock ol breadstuff* in this . market is exceedingly limited, so much so that a ; day or two of unfavorable weather has a material influence upon prices, and there is every prospect of the supply becoming reduced to the 1 ; smallest quantity before the general avenue of re- | ] Ctfipts is in operation. Had there been vessels | i * enough in this port to have taken away the brcadstufls offering for shipment, we should have been ' completely cleaned out, but fortunately for the homn consumption, vessels have all through the ( season been scarce, and the stock has been pretty i < well sustained. 'I he resumption of navigation upon the chan- , ncla of Communication with the section of the 1 country bordering on our great western lakes, is a matter of vast importance, not only to the consume is in this country on the seaboard, but to the whole of Europe, as the quantity of produoe of | every description, which has lor the past Ave months been accumulating at the different points* s immense, and must, upon its arrival in the < markets, have a tendency to depreciate prices. The influx of breadstuff* from the interior must j greatly exceed the deflux, as tho difficulty which has heretofore been experienced 111 relation to vessels and freights cannot be obviated. There : is not a sufficient number of vessels in existence unemployed to carry forward supplies as rapidly as they will bo required on the other side, or to ' the extent they will be pressing forward from this . side. There is not the slightest doubt but that we j shall have an abundance to meet every demand ' from abroad, no mutter what may be the amount, j The last crop of grain has, as yet, hardly been touched, particularly that ofcorn. The aggregate , ( exportation of this grain from this country to Europe since the 1st of January last, a period of about three months, does not exceed five millions bushels, which is hardly n tenth part of the surplus on tiand previous to the last harvest. ! Accotding to the estimate made by the com- I inissioner of patents, the crop of Indian corn in i the United States in 1846, was about 160,000,000 bushels; this, with the surplus of the previous year, would swell the aggregate supply on' hand , in the fall of 1846, to at least 000,000,000 bushels. It would be safe to calculate upon a consumption in this country of at least 860,000,000 bushels, which would leave a margin for exportation of 150,000,000 bashels for the year ending in the fall of 1847. Of our supply of wheat we can spare a fifth part of the crop, which, in 1846, according to the abov<* authority, was about 125.000,000 bushels. This would lie equal to 6,000,000 barrels of flour. Of this we have exported, since the 1st of September last, lull 1,000,000 barrels, leaving a balance of about 4,000 000 yet to go forward, in the event of its heIng wrnted. It will be seen by the above calculafions, that we have a surplus of breadstuff s in this country j greater than the greatest estimated defic ency in | the harvests of Great Britain. The best authori- | t tea in England calculate upon a deficiency eq tal to aixteen millions of quarters of grain, equal to about 145,000,000 American buahsls. Suppose j one half of thia deficiency should be required from this country, we shall still have 30,000,000 i bushels of wheat and corn to supply the demand from nthe?r Aonrsv u The quantity of broadstutts shipped from this country to the United Kingdom, from September 1st, 1846, to March 27, 1847, according to the moat ; official returns, was at annexed i? amrMtcsTi or BssAcsTurrs rsoa thi Ubitsu Statss re llBKST -IIITAIB ABU IsKLABD Sloar........ |bt.

Of the com exported, 2,939,416 bnsbels were shipped from this port. 1 besa shipments are but a drop in the bucket compared wi'h what we hare on hand destined for the tame markets When we look at the large number ui vessels, which ha/e been required to carry forward ihc quantity of breadstuff* exported within the past 1 six monthe, it will be seen that a sufficient ' number cannot be obtained to transport from from thie county one quarter part of the turplus 1 we ehall have. It therefore becomes a matter i for eerioue consideration what we are to do wiUi the flood of food which will aoon be pouring in I upon u* from every section of the country. It is our opinion, in view of these eircum* ounces, that priees, on this side of the At* i lanne, most come down All the com* | WrimtIon our speculators omn perfect, omnoo* : sus'ain them. The tblug will be reversed on the other aide, the difficulties experienced here in : aending forward supplies, must keep prices up to the highest point in Europe. Musi ceJ.

The familiarity of every one with ; the passages of history upoo which the play ia built, l gives it a sort of individual interest to every beholder. It is not tuiprising, then,that it should be wiineesed with 1 leelingt ol the deepest interest.
