NEW YORK HERALD. N?w York, Tuesday, April 6, 18*1. Mails for Europe. The pucket ship Anhbnrton, (.'apt. Ilowland, for Liverpool, will Kail this rntyning, at eleven o'clock. Iler letter bags will clone at half-past ten o'clock. Single copies of the New York Herald, with the latest news, can be obtained at the office in time for the mails. Tile late News from Vera Cruz anil General Taylor?The new American Policy?The Canal to the Pacific. We received, at an early hour yesterday morning, intelligence from Vera Cruz four days later than what had previously reached us, and published it in an Extra Herald at half-past eight o'clock. It was conveyed to us by an express, which was arranged under the direction ol ( Messrs. King and Ski It man, of Philadelphia, two of the most enterprising gentlemen in the ^ express business that can be found on the Southern routes. i We leurn by this intelligence that tten. Scott had not attacked Vera Cruz on the 17th of lust month, because, owing to the rough weather, all his heavy artillery had not been landed. He was. however, making preparations to do so, and had given notice to the foreign residents to leave the town. We also learn that many of the citizens were in favor of an early capitulation, but the military violently opposed any movement of the kind, and had shot, it was reported, several citizens who urged a surrender. By the same express we also received some additional news from the army under old ltough and Ready, to the effect that Santa Anna had rc- i tired to Matuhtialu, where ho was endeavoring to collect his scattered forces, and that Gen. Taylor had arrived at Cerralvo with one thousand cavalry in rursuit of Urrea, who fled towards Victoria as soon as he heard of Gen. Taylor's approach. All this news in detail will be found on the a? _r .i.:_ u u umoiuc VI 11113 ucxy a no utu. Theae two pieces of intelligence we consider [ of gTeat importance at the present time. They prove that, notwithstanding the severe defeats the enemy has suffered at our hands, and notwithstanding that one of his principal cities was invested, and probably would be battered down by American cannon within a few days, that the government is yet unwilling to couie to terms, and is obstinately determined to continue the war. Well, be it so. On their heads he the eonse- ! queners. The Mexican government commenced 1 | the war. If it w ill not conclude it, we will, j ( Wo must be the more vigorous in its prosecution, 1 and make them bear the burden. The probability is, that ere this, VeraCruz is in i j our hands; but, judging from the tone of this j late news, its capture has no doubt been attended with great slaughter to the enemy. We have no j fears for the result. Our Anglo-American spunk has accomplished and can accomplish every thing. The probability, too, is that General Taylor has | pursued the Mexican forces and achieved another brilliant victory over them. By the last advices we had from Monterey, we learned that reinforcements were reaching him rapidly, and it would 1 not be out of the way to estimate the number of j effective men soon to be under the command j of that distinguished general, at iifteeu thou- j sand. With such a force, composed of the ' chivalry of the country, elated, too, with their re- j cent brilliant successes, it cannot for a moment j be supposed that Old Zack would remain inactive. | There is every reason to believe that, faking ad- | rant*?? nf 1 In. conuternu I ion info which he threw > the Mexicans at liuena Vista, and the sad havoc j he committed on their retreating hosts, he i would follow up the advantages he gained, and , by one bold stroke annihilate the enemy's forces, or succeed in capturing them. While these things are going on in Vera Cruz | and the country in and around Moutery, the go- , vernment is steadily pursuing the policy which we referred to a day or two since. Immediately i after official notice of the reduction of Vera Gruz shall have been received by the administration, the new Mexican tariff will be put in opera- i tion in that and other places. The U. 3. steamer j Polk sailed from Washington on Friday last for Huasacualco. She took out an armament for the purpose of taking possession of that port, and | will make a completejsurvcy of the coast and the neighborhood of the coast, with a view to its oc- , cupation, preparatory to the opening of a ship ca- I nal to Tehuantepcc. We are informed by relia- i ble authority that it is the intention of the govern- j tnent to equip several new regiments, to be officer- 1 ed by graduates of West Point, for the purpose of ! taking possession of that country. The officers ) being well versed in civil engineering and sur- j veying, will mark out and survey the line of the j canal, and tho men, together with the Mexican people there, will construct and build it. This great work can be commenced and finished i within two years, and then the long talked of ' and much desired communication between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans will be made and 1 thrown open to the commerce of the world. Whether the war he concluded or not before this work shaJI have been finished, it w ill have no effect on its completion. The terms of peace j w ill be such that this connecting link between ! the extremities, w ill be finished under the auspi- | ces of the United States. orr Fekriks?Complaints aoainst their Man- j aokmrnt.?The city of New York proper con- j tains something like three hundred and titty : thousand people; but Brooklyn, Jersey City, Wil- j li&msburgh, Staten Island, &c., being peopled by ; our citizens, we may reasonably include the population of these places as belonging to the city of New York, and put down the number of human beings in and belonging to the metropolis of America, at five hundred thousand, or half a million. Almost every individual of this great mass is engaged more or less in business, and as the business of the city is transacted in the lower part of the city, it follows as a consequence, that every individual of them must reside as near as he possibly can to the part of the city where business is transacted. The great strides which this city has made within a few years past, growing out of her increasing trade, and commercial prosperity, have induced the owners of real estate in the lower part of the city to convert their dwelling houses into stores ana piacrw ui ouhincnej. 1 hub, men, wurrr, a irw year* since,a street contained nothing hut private houses, not a single place ol residence can be seen this day. The population has increased in proportion to the increase of business; and, as 1 business is, and always has been, confined to the | lower part of the city, of course our people have been obliged to move up town, in order to make room for the increasing business down town. Cut as many are engaged in occupations that ' require their attendance at their places of | business at early and late hours, they preferred to live in Brooklyn, Williamaburgh, and Jersey city, wbcra they would be within ; ten or fiftoan minutes' sail of " down town,"' to f living in the upper part of this city, where they could not reach " down town" within half or i three quarters of an hour. By such people have these plaoes, which may in truth be etylsd the Jaubwr&a of New York, been settled. As they are our owTi crtuens and people, notwithstanding ' their non-residence among us, it becomes the duty of our public authorities to watch over and protect them, because they contribute nearly us much to the support of our city government us if they actually resided in the city proper. This leada us to the subject of ferriage, and to j the ferry aeeommodaiions between this city and M;illiani!"burgh, Hohoken, Jersey ci?v, Staten I Island, kc. We hiive, on h former occasion, given it a* our opinion that the Hoboken Ferry Company have violated the contract under which they hold the slip* at the loot of Barclay, Moboken, and Christopher streets.? They were granted the privilege of using those alips, on the condition that they would run a boat ut certain and defined tunes, which they have omitted or refused to do. By not observing the terms of their contract, they, in our opinion, violated it ; and we trust thnt the slips, the exclusive use of which they now enjoy, will be soon put up at public auction, and rented to the highest bidder, who will bind himself to serve the public at a cheap rate of ferriage. This matter, we believe, is now before the Common council, oui wneiner inev will uct upon it before the election, or not, we cannot say. The next ferry affair in order is the Jersey City company. This ferry is in the hands of those who appear to disregard public; opinion entirely, as well in respect to the high prices which they charge for crossing, as to the accommodations which they provide. During tlte last winter, they carried on their affairs as the stockholders themselves pleased, without much apparent reference to the wants or requirements of the public. Jn consequence of the disarrangement of the machinery of one of their boats, one night last winter, there was no pussage made after half-past ten o'clock. The consequence of this was, that one or two hundred of our citizens were deprived of reaching their families that night. We have no doubt the stockholders will see the benefit of altering the system they have so long pursued, and that they will not only accommodate the public better than they have hitherto done, but also reduce the ferriage to three cents or less. The next ferry is the Fulton. That ferry has hitherto been managed satisfactorily to the public, but ^lately we are sdrry to find that many complaints have been made, and justly so, we think, in regard to the manner in which the .South ferry is conducted. Our merchants residing in South Brooklyn, complain tnuch of the delay that takes place in crossing. There hit two slips oil the Brookl vn side, and yet hut onr is used. Tin y complain of the boats, too,which arc represented an poor, and unworthy for that service. Their cabins, we arc told, leak so much in rainy weather, as to afford no protection from the storm.? Their machinery yets out of repuir almost every week. Within three years four new boats liave been built for the Fulton ferry, while the ast-off boats, it is said, are put on the South ferry. They slop running at a quarter ;>HPt twelve o'clock; whereas, we believe, they ire bound to run till two in the morning. These are the complaints that are daily made Hgainst this ferry, and we trust that the company will take an early opportunity of removing them, or in the event of their not doing so, that the new Common Council will take the matter in hand. We have a word at some other time to say of the Staten Island, Hoboken, and Elizabethtown ferries. The ferry bout between this city and New Brighton, it is said, sometimes starts half an hour before the appointed time, to the serious inconvenience of many residents of the island, who do business in this city. It is very material to our citizens that all our ferries should be conducted in a proper manner. We hope they will receive the uttention of the proper authorities', and be compelled, it' necessary, to make such alterations as may be needed for the public convenience. Two of those who arc now on the Ferry Committee, in the Board of Assistants, sire up for Aldermen in their respective wards, and we hope that the voters will canvass their views on the ferriage system of this city before they east their votes for either of the candidates. New Haven Route to Boston.?This line now leaves New York at 4 past 6, utid Boston at 6 o'clock in the morning. We received, by this route, Boston papers of yestrrda vmorning, before 8 o'clock last evening. They will arrive here between 6 and 7 in the evening. Theatricals. r*ns Theatre.? Mr. Wallock appeared last evening, at the Pnrk. in two pieces, as Don ( wsar de Daxan. lnths popular drama of that name, and as Dick Dashall. In the farce of " My Aunt." On his first appearance Mr. IV. was received by a round of applause, und another, and another, and yet another?and another still; and then a continuous tbundor of some two or three minutes. In truth we never witnessed a more hearty greeting extended to any artist of his line, than Mr. Wallaek received last night from his auditors at the Park. The play was all that eonld be desired; the stock admirably sustaining tbe parts assigned them. " Don Cicsar de Bazan" is a capital piece, and excellently adapted to the talent of tlie gentleman in whose hands it hns been so eminently successful. The farce of" Lost Letter" wasgiven at the MMNMtot the evening, and the entertainment concluded with ''My Aunt." At the conclusion of the principal piece, Mr." WaUaok being called out, came forward and uindc a few happy remarks, waa again cheered in the warmest manner, and retired with good cause to feel proud of his rcceptiou To-night he appears again in the same characters as those in which he appeared last evening. BowvnvTHr.i irk?The great romant ic and scenic spectacle. the "Naiad liueeu." which had been iu preparation Ibr so long a time, was produced last evening, and we must in candor say. that notwithstanding wc were prepared to gee something spleudid, it exceeded our most sanguine expectations. We are not prepured to give a lengthened notice of it at present?we will content ourselves with saying.that none who goto witness It will not be disappointed. We cannot, however, otnit saving a word iu favor of Miss Turnbull. the graceful and elegant, ilantrrur. who personates the principal part. She truly has lost nothing of her reputation by appearing in it.? In fact, we should say that she appears more to advmitange in this spectacle than she does in anything we have ever seen her in. It will be repeated to-night. but as wc said before, geutlemen who purpose to take Indies with them, had better serure their seats Hnd go enrly, because the house will, no doubt, as it was last evening, lie crowded to eSMM Howi av CtRcrs.?Kemp, the greut clown, had a tolerably good benefit last night, but it certainly was not ns good a one as he deserved. However, he will, no doubt, make up all deUricnelcs the next time he is up for a compliment of thai kind We are glad to inform the patrons of this establishment that Mr. Kemp is engaged for six nights longer, and will appear, to-night. In the new ballet of f un and Physic." w hich has bean received with so much applause every tiiglit that it has been performed The Kthcopian Hercnadcrs will play a variety of their favorite songs. Coin and Kemp will give another display of science Kemp will perform his barrel act, and the members of the equestrian company will, as usual, perform their extraordinary feats All these performances will take place this evening So we must expect a very crowded house. Castli: Oardfs.?The spirited and enterprising proprietors of this delightful location, arc. as usual, repairing and newly painting this healthful resort Indeed, we do not know any place in. or near this city, which embraceM so many attractive features It commands a view of a splendid bay. second to none In the world.?at either side of which there is (he most picturesque, rural, and health-inspiring scenery Wo sincerely hope the forthcoming season will be more favorable and profitable than the last, as French h Hcyser are every way descrving of public patronage and are Indefatigable in their efforts to ; render the citizens plessuro of the most refl. ned.charactcr.

At tirst. the visiter ia utlructed by the general beauty of the scene, then admires. one after the other, the ilnely executed paintings upon the canopy, among which the Htraltl Ettablithuuat occupies a prouiineut position, but at lust gradually becomes ubaorded in wonder ut viewing laid out before him tho whole expanse of this vast city, its rirurs, uaty yard, docks, shipping. Icc. A Serious Accioknt.?Yesterday forenoon, as Mr. John t'rowell. residing in 13th street, near Broadway, was driving a pair of horses in a wagon near tho Courtlandt street ferry, the animals suddenly became frightened. and ran with great speod towards Broadway, when, just as they were crossing Greenwich street, they camo in contact with a gentleman by the name of Charlos So uec&l, who was endeavoring to pass at the time, with his nephew; but unfortunately they wero both knocked down, Mr. Benecal receiving a severe blow on the head, | and several bodily injuries.

Walker street. Fell Overboard.?As the Iloboknn ferry boat John Fitch, was making her customary trips, a little after four o'clock yesterday afternoon, a man lost his balance and fell overboard. The boat had proceeded some 200 yards I before the attention of the officers was called or the j boats headway stopped ; fortunately some fishermen, who were soino 400 yards distant, saw the drowning | man. and immediately loft their nets and rowed to [ whero the man was struggling; he had sunk four times I before they got to him; they got him in their boat by the time the steamer arrived to where they were.

The return further stated that the child 1 was unhculthv, had indications of a chronic disease, and 1 that maternal care and solicitude was absolutely nect i- < *?ry to the preservation of its life.

There was a slight variation in the stock market, and >rices fell off a fraction at the opening of the first board ' rhU is universally the case upon a rising market, and in- i variably precedes another advance. There is evidently a lisposition among speculators to put up prices, and sot ral of the most desperate bears have become bulls ? *11 we want is a little more confidence, u little more reief in the money market, a little more favorable news 'rem Mexico, and a few more outside operators in the itreet. to put up prices several per cent above those now :urrcnt. The opening of the spring trade usually has a very IhA...... MiMn t It a atAi.lr mirlritt nn.l In ftrtt. portion to the- activity of trade, aud its probable proluctlveneiw. fancy stock* improve. When the canal is n navigable order from the river to the luke. and the ,ide of produce 1* dotting towards this city, there must po a very great increase in the supply of money in this uarket. Country merchants will l>o enabled by the high price of produce, to pay up exceedingly well, and the jlty merchants will be more independent of the banks ban they have been for some time past. This improvenent will go through all the ramifications of trade, and dl classes must be equally benefited. Whatever tesidx to ncrease the prosperity of the agricultural classes, bus u limilur effect upon ull others, and any improvement upon his basis, cannot but be of a permanent aud healthy pharacter.

Mr. Williamson. the President, lias usigned, and Mr. Whitney, of Philadelphia, in spoken of is hia successor. Considerable interest is uiunifested in Wall street to see the result of the cornering movement going on in this stock, as it has about reached the tuning point. As for making the canal a productive piece if property, without an expenditure nearly equal to ;hat required for the construction of a new line of tlio lame length, it Is entirely out of tho question, and micas something of that kind is realized, tho stock is worth nearer twenty-one cents a share than twenty-one dollars. We hope a Philadelphia president will be elected, and that the stock, bonds, and everything connected with the canal in any shape, will bo transferred to Philadelphia, and that the speculators of that city will hereafter confine the inflations and explosions in it entirely to themselves. This stock has been the greatest curse in the shags; of u fancy, Wall street ever had. It has heretofore been enormously Inflated, and when the explosion came, has smnshed the market all to pieces. The best advice wo cau give outsiders, is to keep clear of this stock; it is a shell, and will crush in their hands before they arc aware of it. It is one of the most unaccountable things in the world, bow such a stock as the Morris Canal, a stock which never had, and never will have,any value, can be run up in six or sight weeks from pix and eight per cent, to twenty-one and twenty-two, an advance of nearly three hundred per cant. It must appear plain to every outsider, genorally, that a rise so rapid could not have been produced by any increase in the value of the stock as an investment; to those who do not understand the movements in Wall street, or tho workings of a combination aihong stock speculators. It must appear very strango how such an Improvement Is brought about, a ad their ignorance makes them an snsy prey to xue suums ui iuc aievci.
