"NEW YORK HERALD | , lltw York, Nontbr, April W, 1MT. The New* from Kit rope The UkIIim In Com, | and Use C'auw?Ital* of Ike Money Mulnt Uy the arrival of the packet-ship Washington Irving, at Ronton, l'rom Liverpool,we have seven days' later intelligence from all parts of Europe. The political news docs not amount to much, and there is no change of any importance in the ' world. The corn markets had expcrienced a slight depression, caused partly by the large arrivals for several days previous to the latest dates, and partly, no doubt, by the pressure in the money market. We consider this decline in prices merely temporary, as it was produced by other influences than those connected with tne consumption. Last winds had prevailed at Liverpool for some time previous to the departure of the Washington Irving, and there had not been any arrivals from this country, in consequence. A change of wind curri'-d in a small fleet of vessels, laden with breadstuff*, and prices became very unsettled, resulting in u slight depreciation. In view of these facts, we cannot resist the impression that u revival wus reulized, and that the next packet will bring accounts of a complete recovery in prices. It will be recollected by those engaged in the trade, that at the latter end of January, between the departure of the Sarah Sands and the Cambria, the price of grain in Great Britain experienced a decline, produced by the repeal of tha corn luws, the opening of the ports, and by the quantity of corn put upon the markets by the announcement of these movements on the part of the government. Holders of breadstuffs in this and other markets of this country, upon the reoeipt of that intelligence, experienced a small ranie, and flour fell off very rapidly. A few days sufficed to restore the tone of the markets, and price# gradually recovered. The next arrival brought accounts of a reaction on the other side, nn,t nil Itindi nl Kmnilitnfln linvr nine* ntnndilv advanced. The effect of the news by the arrival at Bostcn, has not yet transpired, but the nature of the accounts is calculated to depress prices. The extent of the scarcity of food in all parts of Europe, and the extent of the probable supply from other sources than the United States, is pretty generally known on this side, which may have a tendency to neutralize the effect of the latest advices upon our markets. So long as the demand for bread stuffs for consumption continues so much greater than the domestic supply, there will be very little danger of prices permanently depreciating. There may be ' u slight falling off from time to time, from local causes; but as the season advances, and as the ( supply diminishes, prices must improve, and be- , fore next harvest rule much higher than at present. It is nothing strange to see prices for cot- , ton steadily settling down. It would be very strange, under existing circumstances, to see the reverse. The falling off in the consumption was, ut the latest dates, about thirty-three per cent., which, with the high price of food, could not but depress prices. The London money market had not improved an iota. Consols had declined, and prices ruled vorv low. comnarativelv. It was supposed that the crisis had arrived, that the greatest depression had been experienced, and that a change, for the better would soon be realized. What foundation existed for these suppositions, we cannot discover, but wc trust they are not based entirely upon moonshine. There are two steamers nearly due?the Surah i Sands, the packet of April 1st, aud the Cambria, ; the packet of the 4th. The former is now in her twelfth day, and the latter in her eighth day. They will both be in this week, without much . doubt, with several days later intelligence. Opening of the laUimna of Tel man tepee Opening of the IiUiinnA of Sura. A few days aince we inform,*d our readers that the government of the United States were about to take possession of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, and cut a canal across it, that would unite Uie Atlantic and Pacific oceans. The preliminary part of this great enterprise, we also informed our readers, had been commenced, and that the steamer Polk had sailed from WashingIon, with an armament, for the purpose of tukiug possession of the |>ort of Huasacualeo, with u ' view to its occupation. We also dilated upon the advantages which the carrying out of this project would have upon the oommereial interests of the United States, and of the whole world?and showed thai this connection between the two oceuns, would more than repay all the blood and treasure the Mexican war has, and probably will cost us, in the benefits it will confer on mankind at large. Since the receipt of our foreign exchanges by the packet ship lately arrived, we perceive that a similar undertaking is about tbbe commenced in the old world. We are informed that the governments of France, England and Austria have i concluded a treaty with the Porte for piercing the Isthmus of Suez, at the Port of Suez, in the Gulf of Suez, and cutting a canal or a rail rosd to Cairo, the capital of Egypt, and improving the navigation of the Mile ; tints establishing a connection between the Mediterranean Sea and Indian Oceun?or in other words, connecting the Indian Ocean with the Atlantic Ocean. The terms of the treaty are also mentioned. Austria, it is said, is to undertake the works on the coast, and in the port of Alexandria ; the reguloting th<? course of the Nile is to be at the expense. of Egypt; France to undertake the roads through the desert; England to restore the port of Suez, construct the basins, and all other necessary establishments. It is also said that M. Jlegrelli, and several other engineers under his orders, will set out for Egypt this month, for the purpose of making the necessary surveys. On the other hand, the whole affair is represented us a private undertaking, which will he warmly supported by the government. Whether it be a government or private undertaking, we think there is little doubt that this communication will soon he commenced, and carried out. We know not what influence our opening of the isthmus of Tchuantepec will have over this last movement; but it is rather a curious coincidence that two projects, of similar kind, now engage the attention of the old world and the new. Railroad Teleoraph.? In our extracts from foreign papers, on Saturday, we gave an account of a " new electric telegraph," an apparatus about to be applied to the railroad between Tours and Nantes, in France. The end there professed to bo attained is " the situation of the train at any time upon the road." Por this purpose, posts are erected, with an ap7 status at any stated number of places. When th' train arrives at any of these posts, tho numI of that post is g,ven ul the " fijed machine," si he terminus of the railroad, thu? enabling the o.-eetor to know the position of the train. This idea., and the moans generally of carrying It ?nto effect, are not new. Professor Morse, in In 1938, obtained a patent in France, for an appliri.'ion of hi* eleetro-magneiie telegraph principle to this very purpose. and exhibited a working nirxlo! of the same in Paris in the Name year, which excited a groat deal of attention. We have H?'?n his specification and drawings, and Frofessor Morse's plan appears to have this superiority?that, at any of these posts, the conductor c.1'V means of a small w ire only two or thiec in.

I terday received in Philadelphia from General Scott, confirming the intelligence that we published in an Extra Herald on Saturday, and in the Xew York Herald of yesterday. We also learn that Col. Totten has reached Washington ; he came in the Princeton. It is also stated that private letters have been received in this city from Vera Cruz, detailing the bombardment and capitulation. After the above was written, the following particulars were sent to us. We give them, neither vouching for nor doubting their accuracy. They have the appearance of correctness. ADDITIONAL PARTICULARS ABOl'T VERA CRUZ AND ITS CASTLE. A? already stated, the town was summoned on the 22d .March. At 2 o'clock that day the bombardment commenced, aud lasted, with Intervals, till the 26th. when negotiations were resumed, which led to the sur rvnuer ui luo town uiu asue on lue vain. On the second day of the bombardment an offer was made to surrender the town, but Ocn. Scott would not accept the town without the castle, and two more daye of bombardment ensued, when the soldiers of the garrison, listening to the entreaties of the suffering Inhabitants, compelled the general commanding to surrender both town and castlo. Ocn. Morales, refuting to act in the premise*, resigned, or retired, when Oen. Landero succeeded to the command, and signed the convention for the surrender. The bombardment of four days placed the town In ruins, nnder which groat numbers of non-combatants, men, women and children, were buried. The bombardment Is represented to have been terrific, and to Its thunders succeeded the moans of the dying In every part of the town for several days afterwards. Oeneral Hoott offered to the Inhabitants, foreigners, Sic , a safe retreat from the town prior to the commencement of operations. Kxccpt a few shot from the gun boats, not a shot was fired on the castle. The navy bore but little j?rt in the attack; a battery or t>avy (DDI unuer iu? comuiuuu ui imrjr umtTTio, uu great execution in battering down a portion of tho walls of tho towu, and effecting a breach. The army did little more than to bombard the town. The skirmishing at the landing of our troops tested tho nerves oT our untried troops, and t'olonel Harney, with some dragoons, and a few pieces of light artillery, carried a bridge fortified and defended by some hundreds of Mexicans?and thus end sd this demonstration ? ? , , , Although the foreign consuls and their families did [lot accede to the offer of General .Scott, and leave the [own. yet. during the bombardment, they attempted to reach tho ships of their r?specti?e uulions, when thoy were arrested in their course, and ordered back to tho city. We ehall publish an Extra Herald to-day, if we receive any further details of importance. Steamboats on the IItdson River.?Spring having asserted ita powe , the reign of cold winter is over, and the thick ice that so long impeded the navigation of tin- noble Hudson, has melted under the influence of a warm' Hky and southern breezes. Navigation is now re suined for the season, and the river is, as it used to be, the great highway of travel to the north and north-west. Every evening and morning our splendid steamhoatB leave the city for Albany, Troy and intermediate places, laden w ith passengers and goods to their fullest capacity. Not more than a tenth of our steamboats, however. ha\ e yet commenced running, but before the present week shall have expired, the whole of them will, no doubt, be in motion. The following vessels leave here regularly on the days and hours mentioned, vis :? The low pressuro siuambuat Empire. Capt. R. B. Maey. Regular days, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays 1 Imj new and elegant steamer Metamora, Capt. T. S. Knight. Mondays. Wednesday*, and Fridays, at half paat six, A.

Kellogg, having been put In complete order, will take their stations in the line in a few days. The above mentioned vessels run to Troy and tl> any. The steamer Thomas Powell, Capt. Samuel Johnson, leavee daily from the foot of Warren street, for Newburgh and Kishkill, landing at Van Cortland's, (Peekskill,) West Point, Cold Spring, and Cornwall?and will leave Newburgh every morning at 7 o'clock. Thus far, we believe these are the steamers that ply regularly on the river. In a very short time, however, perhaps in a few days, the remainder of our steamboat fleet will be running ; und front ull we can learn, there will be more business done on the Hudson during the year 1847 than there ever was done before. Who is to be oik next Mayor 1?This ques} tion is to be decided to-morrow. The following are ihe candidates i ? Whig?Wm V. Brady,. . .occupation?silversmith. Pern.?J. 8. Browncll " ... .baker's boy. VofivB?I'Hm Druke H . . . .Pre?. Ins. Co. The whiga ought to elect their candidate, for they have not been in power for some time, and i hey ray they will keep the streets clean. All parties have said so time and again. They have, however, a pretty fair man for their candidate. The democrat* ought to elect Brownell, because he has been a baker's boy, and will give I full weight to the poor. This is an important point just now. But he belongs to the "dirty street pnrty"?that is bad. The natives ought to elect their candidate, because if they do not succeed now they w ill never again have a chance for the office. Benevolent individuals should vote for Drake on this account. All we care for in this c uitest is the election ! of the best man.

Christy's Minstrels commence their uintb week this l evening. Mechanics' Hall is every night crowded with the most fashionable people of the city, to hear them sing in concert, their negro melodies, which are now become such favorites, that you can almost recognize the same audiences every evening. They are to produce several new songs and choruses, for the six nights they remain, and no doubt, they will be equally successful.

National Academy or Desiun.?The exhibition for the present year, which opened to tho public a few days since, though containing several admirable productions, as a whole, falls short in point of general comparison with that of tho last season. The number of pictures is about the same, the preponderance of common-place portraits, as usual, somewhat large, and the amount of downright daubs greatly less. There U a full length life slse, which not only is not an eys sore, but, on the contrary, a work of great and well deserved estimation. We do not find any series of twenty portraits all sent by the same band, und of an eTen degree of " unpromising mediocrity." " Moderation is a cold, unpootical virtue," said Lord Lyttleton. and if this is true of anything, it certainly is when applied to portrait painting; for if anything be ' insipid, it is a faro devoid of character, painted by an artist without genius, anil but possessed of moderate talents. The banging of the pictures strikes us as being appropriate?just, and devoid of favoritism?the eye is not offended, as lias often before been the euro, by some distorted and offensive carricature thrust directly upon the line, exposing its own defects and Injuring by its close proximity, others more deserving.
