Wanmaker.?Decition.?Tho decision in this matter, which was reported in the Sunday Herald, was giveu this morning. The Judge said tile Public Administrator was appointed by statute. The question then before me is, whether that "statute is still In force. The constitution (new) declares that such acts of the Legislature as are now in force, shall be and continue as the law of this State, except fcicli parts as are repugnant to this constitution. It is not pretended, uor have I been able to discover any thing in the constitution repugnant to tbut part of tho statute which confers on the Common Council tho power of removal. The ground taken before me is, that the statute authorising the Common Council to appoiut. is repugnaut to the constitution, which declares that this officer should bo elected or appointed, as thu Legislature should designate. I cannot discover between the statuto and the constitution any such repugnancy. The Legislature tany make the office elective, or may direct thut it may be tilled up by appointment of such of the city authorities its they may dusignate; and they have already designated the Common Council as such authority; and thu constitution, which gave them this power, declares that their authority ahull be and continue, until altered by the Legislature. This intention, when so evident, must control all judicial action, and oompuls me to declare, thut Mr. Thayer is duly qualified to execute the ollioe or Public Administrator, and U entitled to the order be seeks for. Order granted. . United States Circuit Court, May 17.?Before Judge Nelson ?Jlndrew Thorpe tt al. vi. Comeliut IV. Lawrence.?Action to recover $l'Jd. amouut of duties paid uudor protest.

Several persons were reported to be lrowned. At dark lust evening the breach was about .wo hundred feet wide, and the waters were rushing .brough with great fury. The hull of an old steamer eas procured- and scuttled immediately abreast the rrevasee, which Impeded the flow of water somewhat, But the banks were evidently wearing away, and the appearances were alarming. The bank seemed to have saved in, for where the levee was yesterday morning the water was one hundred and twenty feet deep at dusk. The streets of Algiers were flooded ; and the water was three or four feet deep all over the Bingamau course, which is immediately in the rear of the break. The depth of the levee at the point broken is about Ave feet, to one may Itnngine the terrible havoo a volume of water of the breadth of the breach and the depth of the levee must make unless soon arrested. A great quantity of wood was swept away, and damage to property in the town must be sustained to a large amount. There was a number of horses and cattlo in the inclosnro of the Bingaman Course, which presented a piteous sight. The ferry beats were crowded with people crossing the river to see and marvel at the rush of waters, it was a grand spectacle to behold, but fearful in its ruthless violence.? AT. O. Pie. May 8.

The advices from Europe by .the Britannia, arc, in a commercial point of view, highly Important, and buve had a very great influenoe upon our produce markets. Bread-stuffs of all kinds have advanced, and very large transactions took place upon the announcement of the European intelligence. The effect upon the stock market has been rather unfavorable; but such is usually the immediate influence of such news. Wo look for a reaction in a day or two. The Britanuia brought about two hundred and fifty thousand pounds sterling in specie.

The news appeared In an extra Herald at about 1 o'clock, P. M. The Information, an far as communicated. wua considered favorable for breadatuffa, and on the . meeting on 'change holder* demanded higher prtceR.

After it* receipt, holders demanded $6. Hye sold, after the news at 105c; and ' oats, to arrive in Jun* and July at 60 cents, | Owing to the fact that parties In Boston en- j trusted with culling and sending on the foreign com- : mercial news by telegraph, having wholly omlttod any ! notioe of the Foreign Provision Market, dealers were i left -wholly in the dark, and operations wore in a measure suspeuded, except a lot of old Prime Tork at $13 I '7%'. Some new Mom at $16 13}$, and some tierces of Hhoulder* at OJ^o. sold before the news. Of this important omission, the merchants interested made considerable complulnt. Another class, interested iu Naval Stores, also complained that tho telegraph report made no allu> sion to their value abroad, and henoe there was no | movement in them to-day. A large bouse In this line, at its own private cost, sent to Boston and obtained the last quotation for Spirits Turpentine in Loudon, which proved to be 60s., and which was kindly handed to ua for publication.

Day.arrived at tha, at New Orleans .-arly on the morning of tha 10th tnJtant from Vera t'ruz. whence she sailed on tbo 9th Inat By this vessel we have received. save the Picayune, ?ov Ira. our regular correspondence anil flies of Vera Cnta and Julapu papers. Apart from the intelligence eoutalned In oar letter*, we learn verbally thst an express reached Vara Crua a moment before the stilling of the James L. Day. with In formation that a deputation had oemo down from tba city of Mexico to request dsn Scott to take the capital under hia protection. This nows la almost Incredibia; bat whoa it U remembered that the system of guerilla warfare baa been sdopted by Mexico, and that the banditti who e.ugtge in thd service aro us dangerous to their own countrymen as to the enemy, the report gains some probability. The impression was gaining ground In the army that there would be no more fighting It was not expected that there would be any opposition thir side of or at Pu>. bla. and It was even doubted If the Mexicans would defend their capital. Expectations of this nature have proved decoltful so often (hat we Indnlgn them with much mlsglvlDgs. The Mexican papers continue their deelamatory stricture upon the ini-Hion of Atocha. It would appear that the sending of this miserable fellow on any Important mission to Mexico lias glren greater umbrage than all else that has been done by the United States. They regard him in the light of an official pimp, a treasonable pander, a perfidious miscreant, and, indeed, the concentration of baseness. They think that he was aent there by the American cabinet In mockery and scorn We have already copied tbe article of El Rrpvlliftis upon Atocho That paper -the very beat in all Mexico --the highest In tone, and tbo sturdiest defender of republican Institutions when tbe monarchical party was In the ascen ant? fter noticing llie arrival of Atocha. on a mission from this country, and recounting his past history In Mexico, exclaims: ? "O, God! this Is the greatest sign that thnn hast for gotten us Send upon us bombs rifles, grape shot, and every class of projectile and mlsfortnnc; burn us, reduce us to ashes, destroy us?annihilate, but do not dith.tior us Send tbo entire North to subjugate and rulr over us, but let not Atocha be the broker of a contlact of peace, because that, devolving upon lis the gr.utcct scorn, and tho greatest humiliation, would be [0. God] thy greatest punishment." 1 his, we are assured. Is a true reflex of the feelings of the better order of Mexicans In regard to the unfortunate appointment. Tbe whereabouts of Santa Anna Is somewhat problematical The last nutbentio intelligence located him at Orizaba with a miscellaneous command of I 009. Subsequent rumors report him a. having gens Snath to rwcruit his ranks in Oajaca It is certain that he hat not shown himself at tbo capital sines his defeat. 'J hero is a report that he Ues res to b-u?* the country, but Mr Ki-ndi.ll thinks ha mar niaku a <li..h nnun die. inched parties in the rear of thu uriuy. or upon wagoa trains. with a view to reinstating himself In the good opinion of the nation It wus the intention of Ovn.

In consequence of lhu determination of thu twelve months' volunteers. In a body, not to re-cnllst. This may rutard thu advance of the army, uuloss, indued, the reported readiness oi the city to surrender be confirmed If thu rumor prove true, tho guerilla troops are raero marauders?a band of pirates, and should be treated accordingly. Gen Worth was gathuring up all the grain he eould, and has all the bakeries at work, as if in anticipation of breaking off communication with Vera Crua. It will be gratifying to all to learn that Gen Shields was thought to be in a fair way to recover We have always regarded him as about the best appointment from civil life yet made by the President. Maj. Gen. Pillow came passenger in thu James L Day ills wound is doing well. I.luut. Col.

TUB KIU.hD AND WOfMDED AT CEKJlo GOFIHJ. ikroin the New Orleaus Picayune, May 8 ] We yesterday published a list of killed and wounded at the butllu of < erru Gordo, as made out by the return ing officers. This list gave a grand total of HUH killed, wounded and missing The Adjutant General states thu loss to la- 4'i.i four hundred and twenty-five This discrepancy arises from the fact, that in the official report the loss sun la inod by the Tennessee and Pennsylvania Regiments, under Gen. Pillow, is not put dowu We have before us a list of the killed and wounded in that brigade, which we subjoin premising that it should have been published yesterday, but was omitted by an oversight, because it did not accompany thu copies of the official returns, which wu for the moment Imagined embraced the whole loss suatainod.
