" made on the spot, by an accomplished officer ol the nnny. This is one of the most valnuble engravings we h ,ve ever published, and tn iy be relied upon for accuracy. The whole plan of the battle can be seen in a moment?the position of the several regiments of the contending armies, &c. Single copies, in wrappers, 6^ cents each. .Ntwi from Europe. The steamship Hibernia, Capt. Ryrie, is due at Boston this afternoon. She is now in her twelfth day at sen. Our merchants are looking for her news with considerable interest. It will be of importance. Mexican Mutt *ra_ Prospects of Peace. The further we get into the interior of Mexico, the probability of conquering a peace becomes reduced. The more victories we gain, lead us further from peace than we were at the start We have captured city ufter city, vanquished army upon army, and have penetrated almost to the capital of the country, and the people appear to be more determined upon war than ever. * We have before us but two alternatives. One is to subjugate and govern the people of Mexico; and the other is to take and destroy their cities, " ' r .1 1 L J to confiscate tne property 01 tae cnurcn, uuu ic- i tire to such b boundary us may be deemed proper for just indemnification for the expenses of j the war; and leave rhe rulers, the clergy and the people, to mtke the best of it, to build up their cities at their leisure, to establish whatever form ofgovernment they may choose, to slaughter each other as much as they pleuse in their civil revolutions. We can tuke possession of such sections of the country as may be deemed sufficient recompense for the injuries received, and for the blood and treasure expended; and preserve, by means of a cordon of forts from the Gulf to the Pacific, the masterly inactivity recommended at the last session of Congress. It would, without doubt, be better for this country tocarry out this summary and rigorous policy, than to attempt to establish a military government throughout Mexico, and support that government by levying contributions upon all CUSSeS, mid ny me ( Iiiuririuau ui icmiuc mnpj but suMi a course would not be con-istcnt with our institutions; it would be more on n level with the policy of European powers, and have the appearance more of a war of conquest than it actually is. When there is no oth?r alternative, we may be forced to ndopt it, but every other expedient will at first be resorted to. It is decidedly the best policy for a powerful nation like this to be liberal, to be humane, to preserve, if possible, the people and institutions of a neighboring republic, to improve their political and personal condition, to give them a more substantia) government, and to remove those bitter prejudices which exist in the mind of every Mexican, relative to all outside barbarians. We mu.-t hold forth the olive branch/ and forbear until forbearance ceases to be a virtue ; we tnu>t ?i peace, without resorting to harsher measures than thoae already used. We must conquer a peace with kindness, if possible; and should we fail in so doing, after the most patient and persevering efforts, should the government and the people of Mexico continue to resist all overtures from our government, a retribution awaits them, that will annihilate some of their fair cities, and heap coals of fire upon their heads. Every thing depends upon the policy pursued by the Mexicnn government after the American army has taken possession of the capital. If ne- j gotiations are not entered into immediately after that movement, we must sbandon all hope of peace, and make up our minds for a continuance of the war for an indefinite period. The city of Mexico will be the destination of the army under General Scott; there will be after the occupation ; of the seat of government, no more cities to capture, no more to be given up to us. It is the policy of the Mexicans to preserve their cities from injury, and they are, therefore, giving them up quietly. Another motive in surrendering without resistance is to draw General Scott as far into the interior as possible, before he gets reinforcements, for the purpose of lulling him into false aeeurity. We are not to be caught in that trap; and when Gen. Scott enters the city of Mexico, he will do so with a force sufficient to maintain himself against any thing that can be brought against him. The question of peace will soon be put into a more tnnivible nhiine All doubts unon this noint will toon be removed. The government will make another effort to procure a peace, as soon as we have taken possession of the "Halls of the Montezumns," and if that fails, a course different from that which from the start we have religiously adhered to, must be adopted. A few weeks will decide what that course will be. Steamer Washington.?Many thousands of persons visited this ship on Saturday; and many were obliged to come away unsatisfied, as it became necessary to resume work on board, in order to prepare for sailing. Indeed it was found indispensable to continue work upon her at the very time she was thronged with visiters, much to the regret of her excellent capt,tin, who being, with good reason, proud of his ship, was very loth to display her to sa little advantage, and very sorry to receive his guests, a*he was constrained to do. It is, therefore, with regret that he will be obliged to exclude visiters from his deck on Monday and Tuesday. But it is a matter of indispensable necessity, for being determined that nnfhinir shall interfere with his well bnnu'n punctuality, Captain Hewitt i? resolved to have all hin coal, Mores, furniture and equipment* completely on board, and the decks and cabins clean, and fully ready for sea on Tuesday morning. On her return from Europe, without doubt, some favorable opportunity will be selected to gratify the natural and laudable curiosity of our oitisens in behalf of this first of ocean steamers.

Xa early aa liJSti they established :i free irhool, and In IA47, by an , act of the General Court, prorlded for the eetabliehment I of free schools in every town- where-there were fifty householders; and In the msmorable statute which gave j rise to those institutions, they declared tha? "leurniug should not be buried in the graves of their forefathers.'' Tlia Latin school at Boston was also founded at this time, and was soon the most celebrated of any throughout North Ainerioa If Boston became the cradla of liberty, I It is not to be wondered at, for she regarded her children with a true parental love, and was ths nursing j mother of many a patriot hero and sago. Krom that early day to tba present, the educational career of her population haj continued to become mora and more distinguished, until wa have beard bar styled, aud perbape with juitloe, the Athena of America. Certainly, ber public men have always been celebrated for th'ir learn ng and accomplishments, and that, too, alm?et as a matter of course; while perhaps we. of the Empire Slate, hare not always been equally happy in the acquirements of our leading public men. The classes of publio schools now supported by the treasury of the city of Doaton, are the primary schools, grammar schools, an English high school, and a latin sobeol. These schools are under different directions, but are all eminently successful. The cost of the public schools, originally was $616,317 69, and the whole expenditure In connection with them for the last twenty-firs years, has been $3,437,837 03. The sum expended for their maintenance the last year, was $305,643 18. equal in amount to one-quarter of the whole tax leried upon the cltisens. The adrantages obtained by attendance at these publio schools, have been so marked, we may say, indeed, so distinguished, that the number of scholars, at the private schools, diminished from 6 6B per cent of the population In 1639, to 3 81 of the population of 1843, and if there was at any time a prejudice against the public schools, it has rapidly declined, and is no longer apparent. Besides these Institutions, there are others In Boston of the most admirable character. The Lowell Institute, f lundud by Mr J. Lowell, jr., through a legacy of $345.000. is a monument more lasting than brass or marble of the geueroslty. good sense, and patriotism of the donor. Thero a c urse of lectures is annually delivered, by tbo most eminent meu of the country, on sutjeots of practical utility ; and what must we think of a city where as many as 6000 tickets havs been Issued to the attendants of a single course ? How csn we justly appreciate the moral worth of a community, not one quarter at Urge as our own, when ths subject of geology has caused the sale of 3000 tickets for a single course; electricity and electro-magnetism 5,500, mechanioal laws of matter 5,500, chemistry 6,000, astronomy 5,500, botany 5,500, architecture 6,MO, the military art s,uuu, ana optic* 3,400? We auk, with deep mortification, if New York, rich, powerful, and enterprising a* she is, has ever exhibited such a spectacle, such a movement In her masses, such a thirst for useful information as this ? The taxation for the purposes of education is enormous in the city of Boston, one quarter of the whole sum annually raised ; yet never has a word of remonstrance been heard from the tax-payers themselves. The modern Athenians glory in their literature, and in the universality of their practical knowledge. We are led to mako these remarks, because New York, which has in its primary public institutions not faltered iu the march of improvement, nor lagged behind the expanding spirit of the agu, has now an opportunity presented her of occupyipg an exalted position, and of advancing even beyond Boston in the cause of education. New York will, in a few days, be called onto decide whether a free academy, which will send forth yearly one thousand well instructed youths, into active, useful, and honorable life, shall exist among us or not?whether a complete and finished education shall be offered to the sons of genius, without money and without price? and whether those branches of learning now become indisuensalile in this busv and lirosoerous republic, the unavoidable result of the discoveries of the age. and almost unheard of la our established classical seminaries, shall be taught to our children, and made the means of their advancement and prosperity. The act of the Legislature which leaves the decision of these momentous questions to the popular voice, shortly to be expressed through the ballot box, proposes quite a moderate sum for the endowment and support of the free academy, under the control of the Board of Education, and the people aro to say whether they will ureapt it or not. The amount of money required is small, very smell, in proportion to the immense objects to be attained by the outlay?not one-fifth of the sum for Its endowment which a single Bootonian could give out of bis private fortune, for the establishment of an Institute. The annual expenditure for the support of the academy is also so extremely moderate, that it may be easily saved out of the actually unnecessary disbursements of the Common Council. 1 he sum voted to supply oysters and coffee for the corporation, during a single year, will pay nearly one quarter of the whole expense of educating a thousand youths. Let there be then no remonstrances againt this public institution, founded In lore to our youth, and which is to be maintained on principles of strict economy. which shall elevate our poorer classes of scholars, and fit them for an honorable and useful career lu life, when such large amounts are continually expended In jobs, contracts, celebrations and spectacles. We cannot believe there will be any serious objections to the project It is too benign, too excellent, too ad vantagcous. to meet with opposition from an intelligent community. It will be too honorable to New York?to our Stateto our country?to the age?to be now rejected. It will elevate too many of the unfortunate ?enrich too many minde that might otherwise lie waate?increase too rapidly the lovers and defenders of the republic, and recruit too fast the ranks of the virtuous and the wise, to be rejected by our fellow-citizens. The laRue Is however momentous, and had we any fears as to Its result, we would pause for a moment to bewail tne indifference, or combat the enmity, which suouid endanger a noble scheme. But we have none. We see this temple about to rise, upon a steep it will not be "bard to ciimb;" and whose pantheon will one day contain the monuments ot many an illustrious man?many a benefactor of his racemany a go*d and nobis citizen. who*e career began, and whose best attainments and most abiding principles' were attained under its dome, and around Its altars. Sporting Intelligence. Taonmo To-dat.-We call the attention of the sporting world to the advertisements, in another oolumn. of the business to be transacted to-day on the Centreville and Union Courses.

The anxietv. excitement, and alarm, occasioned hv the murderous assault upon Mr, Hotchkiss. of tflfo city a few week* ago. arc rapidly subsiding, and tho hnrriole occurrence has now almost ceased to become a subject of conversation. The poor old gentleman still linger*, but ha* not yet been able to speak: nor I* it possible that he can much longer survive hie injuries, The ruffians who attacked hUn remain in rinse custody. and will not probably be arraigned for trial until August or September next.

F.xtenslvw preparations have been made in Kings county, for the judiciary election, which takes place oa the 7th proximo. The nomination* that have been made, are strictly of a party character, and the opposing candidates comprise seme of the ablest, ie-st. und most popular lawyer* in Brooklyn I h< ir respective claims to popular suffrage are so evenly balanced, that the result if the election iniay bo regarded as extremely doubtful.

Brazoria, Texas, February. 1847. Trip from Galveeton (? lirazoria?Natural Turnpike? IFind-uagon?Model of Travel?Exchanging thr \umei of Riom?Ainuiing Anecdote. T write you from Brazoria in Texas. I arrived at this place yesterday evening, having left Galveston in the morning of the same day. We travelled in what is culled a stugo in these parts?you would probably name it wagon. Nevertheless we had quite a pleasant ride of it. During the greater part of the day our road was along the beach, by the water's edge ; and you cannot imagine a finer road than is here presented by nature, without any labor, any repair, or toll Kates. The gulf beach in this country is composed of pure sand, and the descant from the main land into the water is so gradual, that a person might wade into the gulf a hundred yards, by merely rolling up his pantaloons above hi.-. kn?es. That part of the beach which lies between high and low tide, firms the turnpike upon which we travelled The waves have beaten upon the sand untd it ha? become so firm, that the wheels of our stage scarcely left a track upon it. During the summer sea on ? pleasure carriage driven by sails, navigate* thin road froui Oalveston down to the went end?a distance of thirty miles ?J ho propriety of it charges. i believe, one dollar for carrying a person this distance and bark, which he docs in ten hours?a distance of sixty miles The means of travel in this country arc. however, yet very insufficient and iuconvenieut. 'i here is some little effort being now made, to get up some internal improvements, running from Ualveston inland But capital commands such a high rate of Interest and besides is so scarce, that very slow progress is effected. Foreign capital has not yet found its way into the channels which are here awaiting it. Urasoria is the county seat of Brazoria county, and contaius about seven hundred inhabitants It is situated on the west side of the Brazos river about thirty miles fiwra its mouth. The territory around Brazoria is the most fertile portion of Texas, and at the same time the most unhealthy. In this region will be found in the course of a few years, some of the finest sugar plantations in the world. Thpre is scarcely any bottom to be iound to the rich black mould of which the soil is composed The tew experiments which have been made in (he culture of sugar, promise a realization of the most sauguii.e expectations. Brazoria is situated in the southern portion of the territory, which Stephen F. Austin chose for his colony, when lie first settled Texas. With the grant of lands for the purpose of colonization, to Mr. Austin is associated one of those singular incidents which sometimes acoount fur the inappropriateness of names The river of Texas, which is now called the Draxos. was formerly and first called the Itio Colorado?and the river which now bears the latter name, whs then known by tile former. But in order to procure a grant of land for a colony ill the location where lie desired it, Stephen F. Austin loitod it cuuvenient to make these rivers exchange their names. By doing so. and presenting the authorities of Mexico with a map of the country upon which the rivers were so laid down, he did not find it uecessary t<> contend with their former determination not to graut any land beyond the Brazos. The rivers have never yet been restored to their former rights?and probably never wdl bo P< rhaps it will be considered a strong corroboration of tin- truth of tills Incident, that the present Klo Colorado (which no uns lied River) is as clear as a crystal?Is in fact remarkable as one of the clear, st streams In the world, whilst the Brains Is a turbid and nitlddy stream such as the Spaniards have several times named < (dorado. There Is an anecdote connected with the first settlement of this town which may not prove uninteresting to some of your readers It was first laid tit by ,? in n of tile name of Kobison. in the latter part of tile year IS'ifl Rohisnn came to Texas from the United States about that time with six or seven negroes, which -vas something unusual at that early day in the history of this great country, lie purchased tidii seres of land from Brown Austin, In the absence of Stephen F Ins. tin; nnd It is upon these acres the town now stands. Just where It Is situated tlisre w,l< a plot or parcel of ground called the "pap corn patch. ' a name which it received from the raising of a crop of pop ooru there by some emigrants who had arrived there some time before. hut who of course, had since left it. Kobison laid out his town, and christened it Napoleon; but the uauie wa? an unfortunate one. A man by tin- name ol Pettis, wno wax a wan. seems 10 nave heeu the wit of that day in these far-off place* nave it the name of ' Napoleon ?le l'?p Corn" The effect of i'cttis' pleasantry was to turn tin* place Into ridicule; so much so, at to almost destroy all prospects of a town When Stephen K. Austin, however, returned home, Drown complained to him of what Kohiton hud done. It seems that the establishment of towns at that time was a part of the prerogative The elder Austin thereupon made an arrangement with the Romulus of the place, whereby the walls of lh? city were extended, and Drown Austin was admitted to the rights of Remus?modernised. The effect of this plan was. on account of the respect paid to everything .Stephen K Austin did, the redemption of the pine; whereupon it received a new uaine among men, for Mr. Austin called It " Brasoria." and eo it Is railed even unto this day But the devil being east out. it was bound,to enter Into something, and lo ' and behold, it entered poor Robison. uml he went by the name of Dop Corn llobisi n ever afterwards Al'bough so much nearer the sent of war titan you are thanks to the nbseueeof railroads and telegraphs and even regular malls we hear of nothing which transpire there until you have done so likewise | might write y"U a grcnt deal more from this place, which might perhaps be interesting; but as this letter has reached a proper lengih It tnust ho closed.

This is not only the headquarters of the State, but the i leading men here control, in a great degree, the machinery of the Union. The whigs are daily becoming more ; alienated from each other ; a division of the party is inevitable. The section controlled by Weed and Greeley, j and which embraces Urge portions of the various factions of anti-rentism. abolitionism, nativeism, and Kourierism, being now In the ascendant, are ooncocting measures, and pointing to men, which have long been dead weights upon their party. The other section, the leaders of wnich are such independent and uuoontroiuble men as Samuel Stevens, John C. Spencer. John A l.'ollin, Daniel Cady. and others easily mentioned. Iiave entered into a solemn league to demolish the anti-rent and i i Kourierite division of the whig party. Although Stevens j I holds a prominent offlce, conferred without ??liisitutlon | ! by John Young, yet he will stop at no exertion to coin- i Eel bim to retire from the chair of state, at the end of is present term. Stevens has never devoted much of j Ills aOllllleS 10 political UlKliers. Ill cuil?ci|u< u. - UI 1MB I close application to his enormous legal practice , but : having now secured a station among the millionaires of ! the Slate he is ready to enter into the political arena, ' and will make a desperate effort for the next gub i unto- ; ! rial chair. And as be has openly avowed liiinsi 11? in fa : vor of Old Hough and lleady for the presidency, and done so earlier and more emphatically than any other | whig in the State, I am prepared to see him outstrip j every competitor for the whig uouitnation of governor in | ltf-ld. John koung will retire and remain in obscurity ; with TLroop, Bouck. tic. Stevens' paper. In Albany, is < dealing blows right nud left daily, and they fall with 1 force and effect upon the whig old hunkers. That paper is admirably well sustained, and contains amongst its >

supporters mauy intellectual and political giants. Un- ! less Weed It Co. relax their leading strings, they will j become unhorsed, and the party must Inevitably become disooncerted. On the other hand, it is evident from the signs of the times, that the democratic party are coming to their senses, and are preparing to meet their enemies in solid phalanx. Already they boast of giving the whig* sn imitation Buena Vista tight on the 7th of June. The democrats are the moat wily managers The transactions of the late convention at Syracuse, obliterated ueurly all the ill-feelings whiuh bud for two or three years existed oetweeu me uurucrs ana nunicn. inueeu, 11 it nan nut been for the content between Van Dyke and Peck bam. for neatn in that boi'y, there would uot have been dieplayed a single feature distinct from the old harmonious times of regency nomination and certain victory. The convention displayed exoellent sense in sustaining the previous question, because it would have been entirely unnecessary to enter into an angry and protracted debate between tweedle de and tweeulo dum. The nominations for Appeal Judges were approved by acclamation at the convention, audthe party throughout the State have already given them an enthusiastic, unanimous response. The whigs can create no dissatisfaction with the ticket, except they may possibly endeavor to raise a hue and cry against Judge Bronsou, on account of his alleged hostility to the new constitution; but the argument will apply with equal force against one of the whig nominees, Mr. Noxen, who stands in the same predicament. But the great prise light comes off in November. The eleotion for State officers is one of immense importance; no person can estimate the consequences involved in that election. They are momentous, Incalculable. The officers to be elected, are Secretary of State, Comptroller. Treasurer, Attorney General, knglueer and Surveyor, three Canal Commissioners and three State Prison Inspectors. None of these offloers have ever come before the people, by whom their qualifications culd be scrutinised; they have been log-rolled through tue legislature, and ofteutimes men have been selected whom the people would have promptly spurned and rejected. The present Secretary of State, Nathaniel S. Benton, will probably receive a nomination, although uriny of the friends of Col. Young may desire that he should be reinstated. This will uot be done if Mr. Klagg'g friends demand his continuance as Comptroller, though it is whispered that he luteuds to retire from public life, and assume the management of an extensive financial establishment in the city of New York. Mr. Karriugtou ic not a candidate tor Treasurer, his professional ursolic* in Tioga and thereabouts, is worth to him three times the amount of stilury he receives as Treasurer, besides being relieved of all public responsibility. He Is a faithful and efficient officer if John Van Buren, the present attorney general had not exhibited quite so much scenco at tbo New Scotland prize fight, nor bud induced Governor Wright to certify so liberally, he might probably have suceeeded in a nomi nation. Still it is questionable whether ho would consent to servo another term. His unsurpassed talonts can command an income ten times tho amount which his official station yields him. John will be governor? but not yet?he must abide his time. It is sincerely to be regretted that Hugh llulu y emphatically and decidedly refuses to bo a candidate lor State engineer and surveyor; his services as surveyor general have been so incalculably beneficial to tho people of this State, that the loss of such a man from one of the State departments. and especially from the canal board, is deeply to be regretted '. Ills salary, however, as judge of Suffolk county, will probably be Increased. 'The democratic parly does not contain another man, with tho exception of modest David Hamilton, who could till tbo plaoe so ubly and so constantly, us the present surveyor general But the people of the State must not expect to retain their brightest luminaries, especially when the scintillations of genius are found to be absolutely necessary, in diffusing light, learning and intelligence over the sandy shores of Long Island. Should the democratic party succeed at the June election. tliuy will become firmly reunited, aud form such a ticket for State officers, as will call out their full strength. I Indications to this effect are at preseutsufficiently niani I fest. It will then behoove the whigs to bury all minor i matters of difficulty, come together as a whole parly, and nominate capable, intelligent men. They must do this if they intend to obtain possession of the State offices But if the spirit of intolerance aud dictation is to be exercised, as it was in the nomination of John Voung. then Weed 8t Co. will find their underpinning quickly knocked out by such conservative whigs as Stevens, Collier, 8l0. Amisr. May 39. 1847. Nomination! of Senator$ for the Bench?j3 Slave Caee ? Pilet! to the Cemetery, if'C. The Legislature is probably about to bo deprived of several of its ablest men. The President of the Senate, and Messrs. Spencer, Hand and Harris, also of the Senate, have been nominated for the bench of the Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court, and in case of their election they will have to resign their places in the interim of the Legislature; it Is also probable that the Senate will lose the services of Mr. Folsom. of New York. Several excellent members of th*e lower house are also candidates at the approaching judicial election. 1 have often de-igned to refer to the conspicuous talents of several members of the Senate and of the House, and now when they are about to be transferred from one department of the government to another, I am more forcibly reminded of their merit, and of the great void which their absence will produce. I have the materials in my hands, and I shall be prepared to accomplish my design at an early day. Mark H. Sibley is nominated for judge of Ontario county; the nominee for district attorney is Barxillni Slasson, and J. Porter for associate justice The weather is charmincr: the environs of this hcauti. ful city, in point of natural grandeur and ricli scenery, arc equal to any on thtc continent. I drove through the environs yestcrdiiy; I went into the cemetery, two mile* distant from the eapitol: this cemetery comprises several hundred acres; it is divided into plots; each of these plots is an heir loom, and a receptacle Tor the ashes of many a noble tine. The scenery is grand, and scores of men are constantly employed in planting flowers and forming grass plots and beautifying the entire grounds In this cemetery there are brooks and fountains tliat project a volume of silver water as high as that in the New York Park. The lion. Samuel Young, of the Senate, and his lady arrived at the Delavan Hotel yesterday The directors of the Utlca and Schenectady railway have announced that the fare over that road will be three dollars, on and after the first of June next; the expense of relaying the track with a heavy rail, which the law pessed at the late session renders obligatory may have Induced the company to adopt this method to increase the receipts.

The stock market during the past week has been rather quiet, and prices generally have been pretty uniform. The tendency of prices has, however, been downward, and the market closed heavy. Money is exceedingly abundant, and the rate of interest rules at four and fire percent, at whloh loan* on time to any extent can be obtained; in faot there is more capital offering for employment than can find customers. Notwithstanding the large supply of money, and the reduced rate of interest, there is no speculative movement going on in fancy stocks. Good sound storks are steadily improving; and thoBe fancies, the perspective value e\t uiKUK lnnlra tnnrn favnmhlA APA atoRflilv RflVlLZlcinff! but there appears to be no din position to inflate any in the list with the rapidity which has heretofore been experienced. We cannot satisfactorily account for this state of things, when there is every facility at command to carry out successfully any such movement. A bill has been filed for an injunction, and the appointment of a receiver, for the Harlem Railroad Company, in consequence of an illegal issue of stock, to a large amount, and selling the same at an enormous discount. *It is asserted in the bill, a copy of which we have received, that there is more stock in the market than the charter of the company authorises it to Issue ; that several thousand shares of stock huve been hypothecated for loans to the oompany, upon certain conditions ; that stock has been issued to secure certain parties who have become sureties of the company upon some bond filed or given on a writ of error, brought on some judgment against the company ; that several thousand shares more than the capital of the company are in the market, which have been sold at about half the par valuo. These charges tho company must meet; but whether it can refute them or not is very doubtful.

It will be perceived that the amount of dutiable goods imported in tho week this year, was nearly three times as large as for tho same week las^ while the duties have only been about twice as large. At this rate the per cent received tor the week this year, has only been about two-thirda that of the same week last. It is fortunate that tho importation has been so large this year, comparatively, as the revenue from customs would, otherwise, have been exceedingly limited. With the falling off in our Import trade with Groat Britain this year, the aggregate importation ef foreign merchandise hns been uuusually large; and a very moderate importation of foreign manufactures would turn the balance of trade against us. The large importations of spocle have nearly liquidated the balance of trade as fast as it has been created; and if the harvests of Europe prove an average, and the full Importation of foreign manufactures reaches a moderate amount, we shall find a very different state of things in the financial world, than at present exists. Exchange is slowly and steadily advancing; rates have already reached points prohibiting the Importation of specie, and an increased activity In the manufacturing districts ol Great Britain, will be the result of a suspension of an exportation of bullion.and a cessation of the drain upon the Bank of England. Should the money marKot in r.ngland become relieved, so that the manii ficturers could get once more In full operation, the exportation of their fabrics to the t'nited States would keep down the balance of trade, so that exchange on this side would rule so high as to put at rest all fears for the future. It is our impression that trie steamer from Liverpool now nearly due. will bring accounts of a very decided improvement in the London money market. We do ni believe she wi,l have a large amount of specie on board At the departure of the packet of the 1st of May from this siue, sterling exchange ruled at six and seven per cent premium; and advices of that character reaching London, must have had a very favorable influence upon that market, accounts of which we shall receive by the Hibernia, now nearly due. having been at sea nearly twelve days. It Is will knowu in fliiauclnl circles in this city that a large amount of bullion was removed from the Britannia, just before her departure rrom Liverpool, upon the rreripi m thin side that sterling exchange had improved. The Bank of England wdl l?e much relieved by the stoppage of the drain of bullion for shipment ?> the United stated; and In the event of the nuau being favorable. and the proapocta for an abundant harvest good, thero mutt be an Immediate improvement in the financial condition of all classes In Oreut Britsln. the fTect of which will aoon be experienced on thia tide of the Atlantlo We have not been aiT-cted to any great xtent by the embarraM nent in the money marketa of Europe, but any Improvement In theae market* will ! have a corresponding lutlueuee here, at it wit) re*tor j cnftdMM, Md deeweywlth thwt 41MMM felrtfee U credit, which chipper* here here felt took Kniuuif(> |400OT e*j6 ?, Kill 105* 50 K?a<liutf it, sbe V* *** At skim i ytl c2 3* do J7* faoto K-mwcky e. iojV 50 Jo ?is 37tt mm Iiiiuoii hpl, n? 42% 30 Jo sto s'M $5000 H?uua 3<, t9u 77% 50 do sl5 37% sauuoo do 71 W 50 Mohawk R, 01 ' J* do 77% 150 Harl?.n R, 5% |o00.1 Kaadn g Bds, 73% loo do 160 53% fVKlO ii dririi Bonds, *2 250 do 53% 25 shs Bk America, 107 100 do ?C0 35% 5 Htair Bank, 90 100 do 55*.
