At Wakefield wool market there was rather more doing, and prices were firm. At Bradford there was considerable activity in the piece market, large purchases being made both for America and the continent, without, however, any improvement in prices. 111 I he wool market there was a butter demand, both for combing and short wools, at firm prices. In the yam market there was considerable improvement, both for the home and export trade. During the month there was a slight improvement in the Barnsley linen trade, and the weavers generaUy, were well employed. There were large orders on hand. At lluddersfield, on Tuesday. there was a large attendance of buyers, principally on American account, but there was considerable caution In making purchases There was not much doing in the home trade At Halifax there was a better feeling. owing to the fall in corn and the promises of spring. In the demand fur yarn there was a slight improvement, I n wools there was not much doing, but prices were deI cidedly firm.

Owing to the most gross negligence some where, the mails received by the Cambria, at Boston, did not arrive in this city last evening. They remained in Boston for twenty-four hours ; but it is to be hoped that they were forwarded last night. If so, they will reach here this morning. of We last evening received by Mr. C. t'loyes, of the New Haven and Springfield Hailroad, the Boston pajiers of yesterday morning, which gave us the Cambria's news somewhat in detail. We are also indebted to Colonel A. D. Munn for the Liverpool Mercury of the latest date. With these nnners we are enabled to make out a pretty full summary of the foreign news. We thus find ourselves indebted to the kindness of private individuals by the folly of Cuve Johnson, llut what can we expect from a man whose department is so managed that important government despatches are received by a mail steamer, and sent to Washington by the wuy ol New Orleans^ We will look out for the future.

The news is bad for speculators in breadstuffs in this country and in Europe; but it is good, very good for those who have nothing more to do with hreadstuffs than to cat them, and get all they want to eat us cheap us possible. The consumers are very partial to such advices as these; and it cannot, therefore, be said that the European accounts are very unfavorable. It appeurs that the decline in hreadstuffs bus been produced utmost entirely by the immense supplies which had, for several weeks previous lo the departure of the Cuinhria, been pouring into Liverpool and the principal ports of Ireland.? The market has only been affected to any extent thus far by the two legitimate influences, supply and demand. The favorable state of the weather, and the fine prospect relative to the growing crops, had no doubt an effect upon the markets; but it was only in connection with the other influences, that they could have operated at all upon prices. From the continent the accounts in relation to the season were very flattering, and all the indications were decidedly favorable; but there is u long time between this and harvest, and Coil only knows what win turn up between this and that. So far as high prices are concerned, it was the general impression in England that the crisis had passed, that they had seen the worst, and thut from this time forward the course of prices would be downward. Such wua the state of the markets when the steamer left, that it is impossible to arrive ut any satisfactory conclusion in relation to the movements going on! but it is pretty certain, that if the receipts of breadstuff's continue as large as they have been, there is an end to high prices this season. Quotations for cotton were about the same us on the 4th of March, when the Ilibernia left.? The speculative movement had subsided, and the market at the latest dutes was very inactive. We do not look for any improved movement in this staple until breadstuff's have settled down considerably below current prices. We do not notice any material change for the better in the London money market. Consuls remained much depressed, and the Bank of England was losing its bullion very rapidly. From 'lie 13th to the 27th of March, the bullion had fallen from ? 10,78(5,340 to ?10,320,340, a reduction of ?4(i(),000 in fourteen days. The Cambria brings ?420,000 in specie;Jand it was reported in London that the three steamers leaving in April, in the Cambria, Sarah Sands and the Caledonia, would bring one million sterling in specie.? The Hank of England must be very much weak 'tied liy tins la rye and steady drain of bullion, and unless speedy measures are adopted to stop it, the embarrassment in the money markets, on the other side, must be more serious than any yet experienced. The Sarah Sands was advertised to sail on the bill insl. If she sailed on her day, site lias been at sea sixteen days, and will he in between this and Sunday. Her news will be two days later. The Caledonia has been at sea but two days, having sailed on the 20th; she will not he here for two weeks. War Despatches.?Our paper yesterduy contained the official despatches of General Taylor, giving the details of the buttle of Huena Vista, and those of Col. Sterling Price, commanding the nriny in New Mexico, giving the details of the suppression of the revolution in which Oov. Dent and other civil ollicers were murdered ; the details of the battle at the Pass of Embudo, and those of the buttle of Pueblo de Taos. Our readers are acquainted with the gallant manner in which our troops deported themselves at Buena Vista; but the behavior of those in vr...., ii? .... l.11: ,v... c?i.i as well as in its results. Nothing could exceed the during and bravery with which they stormed and captured Pueblo de Taos. Tli it town is represented as a place of great strength,? surrounded by walls and pickets. Within the enclosures it contains two large buildings, and a large tower, the exterior and interior walls of which were pierced for rilles. The attack was tnude on the church, und after a desperate resistance, it was taken. These despatches are so important and interesting that we shall publish them in the IVtrkly Herald on Saturday next. American Ocean Steam Navigation.?It will he seen by an advertisement in another column, that the steamship Washington, the first American ocean steamer will leave this port on the first of June next, for Cowes, Southampton, and Hremen. The Washington is a splendid vessel, built in the most approved manner, and is under the command of Captain Hewitt, who is well known as one of the most skilful and gentlemanly commander.-!. The manner in which sh< is built, renders her capable of being converted into a vessel of war at n day's notice.

I.a Vega had been at I'uente Nacional, with 1 -2000 men and nine pieces of cannon, but not being sup| ported by the government or the people, had concluded ' to abandon the post, and marched olf his force towards the city of Mexico, immediately after his departure tile citizens of Jalaps assembled together, aud determined to send the Alcalde to tho American camp, to surrender the town Col.

To thin defence the plaintiff replied tin-re win a custom among brokers in the city, that whoever named the vessel Drat was entitledjto be paid the commission, or at all eventu one half. Tha Judge charged the jury that the only question wus whether by the rendition or the alleged services,the plalntiffH have a claim against defendant. There are three ways by which a plaintiff may sustain his claim in a legal tribunal. First on a contract entered into between the parties; secondly, if there be no contract then he must invoke the general law; and thirdly, in the absence of any agreement, and the general law doea not reach his case, then he muHt resort to custom, and if there be a general uniform usage or custom, it stands in the place of the general law; but tbe custom must be reason able, and consistent witli law, to give it validity. In ap- . plying those rules to the evidence ill tbis cause, you are j to say whether plaintiffs have established a custom 1 which covers their claims.

If you are of I opinion, from the evidence, that a custom has been I proved, and that they rendered the services, then you " ought to find for the plaintiffs : if not, then your verdict should bo for the defendant.
