^ SU?a?^a?"i ' i-? NEW YORK HERALD Nrw York, Sunday April II, 1847. Thf Capture of .Vera Cnu and the Caatle*7?! San Juan d'Hua. Our special and extraordinary express, whirl we nave riau arranged ior some urne past on ihf Southern line between Philadelphia and New Orleans, arrived at Philadelphia yesterday morning at 9 o'clock, from whence the new s which it brotaght, was transmitted to our office by te le graph. It contained the glorious intelligence that th< crty of Vera Cruz and the Castle of San Juar d'Ulfia, had capitulated to the American urmy, and that the stars and stripes of the United States of America wave over these two strongholds of the enemy. We were prepared to witness un excitement on the arrival of this intelligence, but we bad no idea that it would be so ardent and enthusiastic us it was. The moment the news was announced, every lrlnd of business was suspended. The/uror was actually terrific. Joy, patriotism and satisfac lion wore pictured on every countenance. Our citizens exchanged congratulations?all were eager to impart the glorious news to their neighbore?our shipping, steamboats, public hotels, newspaper establishments, and places of amusement, were decorated with flugs. In fine, every consideration was forgotten but the last brilliant achievement of the American arms. By reference to another column, it will be perceived that a public meeting was held yesterday at the Merchants' Exchange, and a committee appointed to take into consideration, and recommend a public demonstration" in honor of the event. "Without waiting for a report, we took the liberty of illuminating the whole of our spacious establishment last evening. Various conjectures were afloat yesterday as to the effect which the capitulation of these two plaeeswill have on the government and people of Mexico, and what would be the future movements of Gen. Scott and the troops under his command. As to the lirst, the general opinion was that peace will immediately follow?that negotiations will be opened within a short time. In regard to the movements of Gen. Scott, we can inform our readers reliably, that ufter garrisoning Vera Cruz and the castle with tho Louisiana troops, he will move to Jalapn, a healthy position, and wait the course of events. If propositions for. peace be not immediately made, he will march to the capital on that route, while old Rough and Ready advances on the San Louis route. TXttLEGRAPHIC FROM PHILADELPHIA.

All the wounded are doing well. 1 Of the Mexicans the slaughter it said to have been immense. The commanding General was stationed in the city, while hit second in command held the > Castle. 1 Their regular force was about 3,000, and they 1 baa about me .mine number 01 irregulars. Uut- i side the city was Gen. La Vega, with a force of from six to ten thousand cavalry. Col. Harney, with between two and three hundred United States dragoons, charged on and repulsed this immense foree, with terrible carnage, scattering them in al> directions. They had barricaded a bridge to protect themselves, but our artillery soon knocked away this obstacle, and gave Harney's command a chance at them. In the attack on the town and Castle, only our smaller vessels, drawing not over nine feet, were available. But few shot and shells were thrown into the Castle, the attack being mainly upon the I town. None of the enemy's missiles struck our vessels, and midshipman Shubrick, who was killed, I was serving over a battery on shore. # With the loss of the city, the hopes of the enemy fell, as they bad not provisions enough in the castle to sustain a protracted siege. The Princeton is commanded by Capt. Engle. As nhe sailed from Vera Cruz, Com. Conner's flag was saluted from the Castle of SJuande Ulfia; i the Commodore is a passenger on board, having been relieved by Commodore Perry before the commencement of operations. The Princeton having landed the bearer of despatches for Washington, and Col. Totten, sails immediately for Philadelphia via Havana. TKL.BORAPHZC FROM BOSTON.

State of the Grain Markets. I LOAN FROM RUSSIA ! TO THE BANK OF FRANCE. I SHIPPING INTELLIGENTE. Arrival of the Sarah Sands at Liverpool. dee., dec-, dir. The packet ship Washington Irving, Captain I Caldwell, arrived at Boston at 7 o'clock yetiterday morning, from Liverpool, whence she sailed on the evening of the 21?t ult. We are thus indebted to our little neighbor, Boston, for European news seven days later than any before received. We are beaten this time bv a Down East packet, and we acknowledge the corn. That's fair. Our Liverpool dates are of the 21st. The intelligence to this date was transmitted to the A>td York Herald office, over the telegraphic wires, in Hashes as bright and as brilliant as the Hashes of the cannon at the bombardment of Vera Cruz and S. Juan de I'lua. Annexed is the news. The Sarah Sands arrived at Liverpool on the 18th. The Constitution, Cupt. Britton, arrived on the 20th, with damage to spars, Str. The Surah Sands would leave Liverpool on April 1st for New York. The steamer Cambria, front Boston, arrived at Liverpool on the 16th, with damage, having, on the evening of the 4th, fell in with a floating bed of ice, and injured her paddles and sides; ' hut her firnt build and appointments enabled lo r to surmount all difficulties, and bearing south, sire escaped further danger. Mr. O'Connell's health waa daily improving at Hastings. He walked daily on 1 lie esplanade, and took carriage exercise. The Karl of Shrewsbury and Sir James Murray hud visited him. The Emperor of Russia bus purchased from the Bank of France the greater portion of the French 5 per cent, stock, held hy that establishment, to ( tiie amount of 50 millions of francs. The treaty was concluded and signed by the Government and the bank, and the Russian Charge, and approved by the bank directors, on the next day. As soon as the fact was known, 3 per cents rose I franc, (20 centimes,) hut afterwards receded. The French papers, though allowing that the transaction gave immediate relief to the bunk, vet were alarmed at the power thus obtained by the Emperor Nicholas. It seems that the first advances in the business ' came front the emperor himself. All kinds of cotton had declined ^d. per lb.; but at this reduction purchases in Uplands,which were placed at 6Jd. per lb., could not be made to any extent. The totalsales of the week, including 2,600 lor exportation, were 16,450 bules. The Timt* states that Sea Island forms an rxceptiou in the dow nward tendency of cotton, being firmly held, and commanding full prices. F.uglisb and Irish flour being extremely Jiflicult to sell, each was nominally cheaper, and ! American in alow request at an nhatcment of two shillings to two shillings and sixpence per bid. ludiau corn?in the absence of further orders from Ireland importers being generally more urgent to etfeef sales, a reduction of four shil- i lings to five shilling* per 480 lbs., w as decidedly established. The accounts from America, just received j liowever, juote extravagant rates for grain ?nd flour, which, with greatly advanced | freights, and low rate of exchange, would | scarcely clear themselves at the present enrrency. ' Indian corn per 480 lbs. free, 66s. to 68s.; Indian meal per 196 lbs., free, 31s to 32s Flour 196 lbs , U.S. sweet, free, 40s. to 41s. United States and Canadian, sour, free, 36 to 36 billings 6 pence The Loudon corn trade was very firm ott Wednesday, March 17th, for wheat, English and foreign, of which the supplies were only small, and much below the greut demand which existed for immediate use, from the matters, and for exportation to France, although higher prices had not been freely paid. The business had i been at fully the prices of Monday, and sales were j generally refused unless at higher rates. 1 Indian corn, of which the arrivals were larger ' 1 sirsetha change of wind, was to be obtain i J at lower rates, tteiv being numerous buyer at hand for this grain, where the prices show on) tendency to decline. The reports of the extensive arrivals of flow and Indian corn at the port of Liverpool, had no produced any influence in the London market where the supplies were far below the present de mind for every article for the hotue and foreigi trade. On Tuesday and Wednesday, March ICth anc i/m, several parcels ot American Hour wer< purchased at Liverpool for shipment to France and coastwise. The demand was freely met by holders, anc the prices ofTuesday were without change.At the market on the morning of the I9tl there was a very fair attendance of buyera, and a tolerably good business was trans acted in wheat and flour at the full prices ol Tuesday. Western Canal Flour reulized 40 shillings pel bbl., and the extent of sales since Tuesday was estimated at 80,000 bbls. Indian Corn was one shilling to two shillings per quarter lower. More business was doing at the decline. On Tuesday March 16th, in confirmation ol increased arrivals, we have to note for that day'; market, a liberal supply of most kinds ol grain and produce coastwise, and from abroad, especially of Indian corn and flour, of which the importations are abundant, and the export to Ireland considerable. Transactions in every description of wheat were upon a limited scale. According to the fondon Timt of the 20th ult., the arrivals of grain of all kinds have in creased since Wednesday. Wheat has been dull of sale at Monday's rates. The Cork Reporter announces the arrival of 3d cargoes of grain at that port between Saturday and Monday, the 13th and 15th ult. The market at Brandon, on the 13th, was remarkably supplied with oats and potatoes; there were seventeen loads of potatoes offered, of good size and quality, at an average price of from 9d. to Is., and the main street was choked with carts loaded with oats, many of which left the market unsold. The municipality of Paris continued to supply bread out to the poor of the best quality at 2d per pound, paying the supplement out of the city revenues. The amount expended in this way for the three months ending on the 81st of March, will have amounted to 120,000 pounds. Baron Rothschild has devoted 5 millions francs for the purchase of breadstuffs in America to be sold in Paris. The profits, if any, to be given to the poor.
