^^ P^Tyork herald. *ew V SuUuxIh), July 10, 1H4T. Tut Weakly Herald. The following are the content* of the Weekly Herald, to be issued at nine o'clock this morning:? The foreign news received by the Caledonia and Union ; domestic markets; movements of the President, with accounts of his reception in the Eastern States ; the despatches of our special correspondent attending the Chicago Convention ; a full account of the celebration of the 4th of July in this oity ; correspondence from Washington ; the latest news from Mexico; money and statistical articles, be., &c., &c. It will contain three engravings of the celebration of the Fourth in New York. Single copies in wrappers 64 cents each, mailed from otor office. News from Mexico?.Our ttelatlons wltlt Uiat Republic. Another special overland express for the New York Herald, reached this city yesterday with* the New Orleans Delta of the 2d inst., thirty-six hours in advance of the mail. It contains intelligence from the city of Mexico to the 12th ult. inclusive. It is, like all other Mexican news, ? very contradictory and unsatisfactory. It will be recollected that we yesterday published accounts from the city of Mexico of the determination of the Mexicans to oppose the advance of General Scott to their capital, by every meaus in their power, and that the greatest preparations were making to defend the Halls of Montezuma. It now appears that the Mexican papers to the 12th contain no evidence of thut ormidable opposition which threatened to overwhelm General Scott. According to the telcgrapluc summitry of the 'intelligence brought by our express, the Mexican newspapers are all strongly opposed to peace, ^anta Anna, to the 12th, had not been declared Dictator. The rumors tothut effect had been set afloat by his enemies. The Republicano of the 12th recommends that the forces which are intended to defend the capital, should be well drilled and properly instructed. It says that the chieftains should bear in mind, that it is to be their last effort, and consequently no exertion to have it successful should be spared. The Razonador, the peace paper, recommends peace only from a conviction that the country cannot carry on the war. Our despatch further states that Gen. Valencia has taken command of the army of San Luis 1 Potosi; that a letter addressed to the Monitor from Puebla, says that Gen. Worth, who began < by kissing his hands to all the young ladies at i Puebla, has concluded by breaking the door of i S^nor Paroa's house, and lodging in it; that Gen. i Scott was to march between the 15th and 20th of ' June, as he was determined to celebrate the 4ih of July at the capital; that, according to another account, he was not to march for six weeks from the 10th ult; that the citizens of Tlascala had solicited Gen. Scott for protection from a ] party of guerillas; that a letter from Puebla ad- i vises Santa Anna to march out and attack Gen. Scott before he is reinforced. Such are the latest accounts from the city of Mexico. With so many contradictory statements, what are we to believe ^ We must wait quietly and patiently till our forces march into the main Plaz i of the capital. L,- rom the N. O. Delta, of the 'id inst ] We yesterday received flies of Mexican papers from ibe capital. to aud ot the lJth ult , dates three days later than any previously received. We make from them n series of extracts which are given below We find in tbem do evidence of that formidable, fearful opposition to the advance of Gen. Scott, the apprehensions of which, for the last day or two so alarmed the nerves of some of the more sensitive of our contemporaries. Santa Anna, it seems, however ambitious be may be to piny the dictator, is rather shy in proclaiming his prefi-renrtes; he appears to think that as he can get along, though minus half his "understanding," be cau keep the government moving, muugu rcni-iug uu a muiuu u( ? ministry. Thti flies before us contain full reviews of the opinions of the different newspapers throughout the country, which number about twenty, and with but one single exception (in Durango) they are all fully in favor ef the war. El Monitor Rrpublicano of the 12th ult., contain* a lengthy article on the subject of the dictatorship. Up to that data Santa Anna was not proclaimed, nor had he proclaimed himself.dictator. Indeed, the Monitor ridi- I culed the idea that he designed to become one. The rumor to that effect whioh prevailed in the capital, is alleged to have originated with, and been propogated by, his enemies and the enemies of the country. The Moni'or asserts that the new cabinet Is not to be entirely formed of Puioi, (democrats,) as stated in some of the journals, and that the new ministers will carry out the policy of their predecessors. Santa Anna thinks that without a fall ministry?with the Ministers of War and Finance, together with the clerks in the Bureau of Koreign Relations ?he will be able, for the time being, to carry on the government In an article published In the same paper of the 10th. we find the following paragraph:?'"i'hero is no doubt but that the majority of the nation Is in favor of carry ing on the war, and we are, consequently, convinced that it is Impossible to enter into any arrangement for peace; were It to be concluded, it would prove fatal to tho nationality of Mexico. The defenders of the nation are, therefore, encouraged with brilliant hopes of final s?ceess. an it is undoubted that the position In which the I'nited .States finds itself must, in the end, secure us triumphant success, notwithstanding our former riinnKf.?rs All of us who sincerelv wish the continuation of the war. look upon an equivocal policy an dangerous, und all overture* of peace a perilous means to secure It; for this reison we are opposed to any change in the politics which may five it a pacific appearance.'' Congress met at the capital at last on the 10th. and the proportion of declaring a recess, was lost by one rote. El Republicano, of the lJth, in a leader of great length recommends that the fores which are intended to defend the capital, should be well and properly instructed and drilled, as they bare plenty of time before the American army arrives there. IMng chletly recruits, the generals commanding them, be says, should take great pains in their drill The editor says that the chieftains should bear in mind that that Is to be their last effort, and consequently no exertion to have it successful should be spared. El Umanadnr, the peace paper, says that It has recommended peace, only because It is convinced that the government would nut or oould not carry oa the war, but at the same time It approves Santa Anna's withdrawal of his resignation, and praises him very much, saying that he is tne only man In the country who can keep alive the war spirit. The Legislature of Aguascalientes had given its vote to Gen Almonte. A letter l'rom Uajaca says that Santa -<nna has been unanimously nomlputed President by the "Veislature of that State. Gen Valenoia bad reported having arrived at San Luis 1'otoet on the 3th June, where he took Immediate onmand of the army. Gen. Salas had alse arrived there, and taken charge of his post Gen Bustamcnte was at Irapuato on the Ath, where be was to begin immediately to raise forces from the State of Guanajuato It was thought that Gen. Alcorta bad Issued an order by which Bustainente would be obliged to go as far as Sloaloa, in order to take command of the foroes there?which, according to El Monitor, are nono It seems, from what we see In the Monitor of the 11th, that Santa Anna and Canaliso had "made friends'' once more. and. consequently, the examination of the latter forhis oonductat Cerro <>oruo whp dropped. AJtnougu It was reported that he had been Appointed Governor of the State of Vera Cru?, he was to be employed in the ~ defence ot the capital El EttanAartt 4t (as Chinacatei, publiHhed at San Luis Potosi. >a;i that a large body of guerilla* hat been organised at Boca*, about twelve leagued from Han Luis, and that they were all well armed and equipped. Gen. Alvare* sent an express from Amect, on tbo !Jth, with oorreipondence Intercepted in the possession of a courier golug from the oapitai to i'uebla The Gofirnment bad called on the different persons sending letters, in order that they should be opened and read, to show whether or not they contained any information nf which the Americans could avail themselves. El Rtpublicano of the lltb. bas accounts from I'uebla, in which it Is stated that the American forces would not move towards the capital before six weeks, (from the 10th of June) as they were awaiting reinforcements and heavy artillery from Vera Crux El Monitor of the same date publishes a letter in which the writer states that he has been informed that the whole foroes will ^ move towards the capital, in all from the 1Mb to the 30tb. as they had resolved and were determined to spend and celebrate the 4th of July at the capital. A letter trom luebla addressed to El Monitor, states thnt General Worth went as far as Cbolula with '.100 men, and had returned alone with bis staff, without being troubled by an; of the guerilla*. A letter received at the capital on the 10th, from riaxcala, says that the inhabitants of that place bad addressed a petition to Oen.

Om D*y Utw from U?? Continent mt Inopt. We are indebted to Dr. Jffe, one of the pa??en? gers of the French mail steamship Union, for a copy of Le Commerce, of the 20th ult. It containi) some interesting commercial intelligence, including a full report of the Havre market of the 19th, and several items of marine newb. It also contains several interesting items of miscellaneous intelligence. The steamship Washington, Captain Hewitt, bailed from Southampton ut 7 o'clock on the morning of the 17th ult , for Bremen. The Gazette de France of th?* 20th J une, haw the following passage:? The judiciary commission of the Chamber of Pears baring made Mr. Ceete,;tbe ex-minister, pass from the rank of witness to that of accused, and having sent him with Mr De Cubli-ree, before the Chamber or Peers, an animated diocussion ensued, whether the Chamber of Deputies ought to interfere in the aocusatlon, for Mr. Ceste was minister, when the affair of Cubit-res and Parmustier took place in Paris. The affair of Em'^le de Girardin made a great impression in Paris; the matter, if not already entirely discovered, is, however, enveloped with such a transparent veil, that we shall no doubt soon receive the news of its having been probed tn th# Iwttfnm The Peer who has bought hin/><urt? for 80,000 francs, is said to be known. The Slmaphort of Marseilles, of the 16th of June, contains the following extract:?"89 ships with cargoes of wheat, from different ports of the Levant, have landed their cargoes within a few days, at the port of Frioul. Up to that time 235 ships, nearly all loaded with wheat, had arrived at that port." "L'lndus," a magnificent ship, the oldest of the French merchant navy, entered Havre on the j 18th ult. She was built in England in the year 1718, and is, consequently, one hundred and twenty-nine years old. She was taken from the English, in 1778, by the French, during the war [ which was declared after the independence of the United States, and has, since that time, remained in possession of the French. The official journal of Madrid of the 14th June > contains the following notification, made by the minister of justice, to the auloritier of the kingdom :? Somo newspapers having dlsouaaed the rights ae knowledged by the constitution and the laws, or the In fuut Dona Luiaa Fernanda to auooeed to the orown o f theae kingdoms, the public prosecutor, desiring to pu t an end to there discussions, is obliged by his duty to adopt coercive measures to prevent them for the future. Disquiet and trouble still reign at Madrid.? One person says that Espartero had received permission to return to Spain with all his grades and titles; while others say that Narvaez was to return and seize the reins of government. Our > advices from Portugal, are of the 14th jf June. The Junta had accepted the proposed conditions. Measures had been taken immediltely by the commandant of the English forces to stop the march of the troops of the Queen's party, whose leader was Saldanha. Correspondence from Constantinople of the 2d June arrived, via Germany, contains the following news :? The last mail ha.a brought the news which ?u no impatiently waited for at Vienna. The Prince of Metternlch hat cut the gordlan knot. The Dlvaa'a demands are recognized as just. Mr. Muwarns, the Ottoman Minister will return to Greece and reside in Athens.? Mr. Colttel, " or one of his colleagues," will pay him a visit and make an apology. Before all that will be done, the President of the Counoil will write to the Ottoman Porte to make known that the Hellenic cabinet is ready to receive Mr. Musvarus; but it is understood that this ambassador will be reoalled after a oertaln time, and another diplomat will be appointed In his plaoe. By this piece of diplomacy, the Divan succeeds in getting his ultimatum; and the only difficulty that now exists in the way of a final settlement is the visit and apology which will be made by Mr. Colettl, or by " one of his colleagues." The Count of Sturmer and Lord Cowley had an interview with the great Vizier, in which they congratulated him, or rather they congratulated nno unnihir nn tiip hnnnv termination of their quarrel. The Ottoman Porte adheres entirely to this settlement. The only thing now is for the lircek cabinet to consent to it. Negotiations are to be opened between Austria and Prussia,(respecting the Zollverein) in order to efl'ect a mutual understanding between the two countries relative to commercial matters. The aulic cancellor, Baron D'Esh, has departed for Berlin for that purpose. A food riot took place on Tuesday evening, at Ostend. The high price of wheat and flour in the market of Fumes, obliged the bakers to augment the price of the bread. This becoming knowji, a great many persons went to supply themselves with bread, wishing to avoid the rise, which was to begin the next day. The bakers had concealed their bread, and refused to Bell any. This refusal excited the people, and a riot began, but the burgomasters and three cancellors presided to the sale; of the bread, and peace was restored that evening A scandalous affair, similar to Mr. Gudin's, took place at Vienna. A Cai>tainde N., aide-decamp to the Duke Ferdinand de Saxe CobourgCoharv, brother-in-law to the Princess Clementine d Orleans, forfeited his honor in so shameful a manner, that French scandal is left quite behind by it.

The news from the Interior, and espeo tally the middle of Russia, are vary unfortunate for rye. They look on the crop as lost, in consequence of drought. Late ;rro.m f Jamaica*?The schooner Volant, Capt. Mathias, arrived last night, bringing us files of the /Impatch, published at Kingston, to the fithjult. At a meeting ot the great Internal Railway Company, held on the 2d, it was resolved that the company should be dissolved, and that the deposits, alter paying oil the debts of the company, should be returned to the subscribers.? It is said that a dividend of 7?. in the pound will be available. The weather was very favorable for the crops, throughout, and the estates generally, in the district of Bath, St. Thomas, in the east, were bringing the year's crop to a good conclusion, the estimate m many cane* having t??en ? *cMded OMM Itw B?Tl|?IUW Steamer Union. TbU elegant Frenob ntumir which trrirad In our port ob Thursday, U certainly on* of th? finest steamships we have ever seeu in our harbor. We visited her i from bar upper deck to the keelson, yesterday, and now furnish our readers not only with a description of her, but also with the particulars of her passage over the Atlantic. The Union left Cherbourg on the 'JJd of June, at 7 o'clock In the morning, and arrived here on Thursday the 8th of July, at 6 o'clock In the afternoon. The day of her departure and the day of her arrival being divided, as is generally done in the oase of the English , strainers, the French steamship has made her passage in 1 tlfteen days instead of sixteen. This is quite a remarkable trip for a ship that had never before made ber way j aoross the Atlantic, and whose officers were somewhat i Ignorant of the road. In addition to this the chief engi- J neer has shown us his log book, in which it is stated that 1 for the purpose of repairing the machinery, and arranging some other matters, the U. was stopped fourteen hours during the voyage. It Is unnecessary to say any- < thing relative to the difference between New York and Cherbourg, and Boston'and Liverpool. The second day she was at sea a head wind began to i l.lnw .?.< Ji.J? ??-? _U.l ?"? ?*??t ?? "v-ii-u *?'?"! tus nuuiu |iug<|g. uu the third day out, a fatal accident took place in tho engine room. The second machipist, named Thomas, baring . come down to the lowest part of the machinery, wan fixing a screw, when the unfortunate man was struck on the head by the lever and his skull broken. Thomas had 1 strength enough to reach the deck, where the surgeon of the Union gave him every attention which a most j touching solicitude could suggest; but the poor man, after twelve days of the most horrible agony, dled.jand was , launched to his last resting place in presence of all the < officers, crew, and passengers, who assisted in the cere- j mouy evidently with the deepest sorrow. A Catholic priest who was among the passengers, L'Abbe Butem, presided at the ceremony; and this Bolemn burial was a sad spectacle. This was the only remarkable Incident that occurred during the voyage, and the Union arrived here safe and in good order. Before reaohing her pier at the foot of Clinton street, she met with some difficulties occasioned ' by a sloop, by whioh one of her buats was crushed to ( pieces; and when near the wharf a German brig having refused to move, broke her left paddle box, with its bow- < sprit. But now the Union is safely fastened to the wharf, j In a few d?y* she will be ready to reoelve visiters, who a may assure themselves of all the elegance and comfort y which can bo displayed by the French offloers. q The Union has lor her Captain iCdmond llebert, Esq., e Knight of the Cross of Honor, a very amiable gentle- y man, and who is known to be an exoellent officer. Mr. D'Heseoque, an old offioer of the navy, and a very . fine old gentleman, full of urbanity, acts as'Messrs Herault & Handel's special agent on board of the steamer. Then oomes Mr. Laine, the seoond offioer, who has a himself been a captain in the merchant navy. Then there are two lieutenants. Mmrs. Bandran an J Tonastre. The surgeon is Mr. Poirson. This gentleman, whose medical knowledge has been mentioned te us principally . In relation to the accident of the poor machinist, is a 1 very fine looking gentleman, worthy of the rank be a occupies. tl The machinist in ohief is Mr. Joannet, having tbe rank of an officer. Tbe erew is oomposed of 54 sailors e and boys, 18 firemen, three cooks, a baker, a chamber- a maid, and six servants. We must also mention fbur p machinists, having rank of masters ; three masters, the (| first carpenter, thelwo other masters of the crew, then 11 one furniture maker. P Tbe form of the Union is quite elegant and bold. Her * masts slim and strong, and tapering ; the figure which tlands at her head represents a golden eagle terminating T in a dragon's tail. The machinery which has been cast 0 at" Le Creusot" foundry, possesses great beauty of de- * sign, and is carefully finished, and moves with the a utmost ease and facility. In short, it works charmingly. ' Let us now visit tbe cabins aDDroociated to Dassentrers. * The only rooms we find on the deck are oocupled by the , captain, the superintendent, and tho surgeon. A small *' parlor, -with a divan, is in the middle of these rooms. e and frontiug them the wheel, compass, ico. Icc. * Under the deck are the cabins occupied by the passen- 1 gers. They are divided into two long seotions along tbe 8 ribs of the ship, and end with the dining-room In the * middle of these rooms are two small square blocks, in which are also rooms, and a parlor for the ladies. The c dining-reom, Instead of being like those of other steam- ? ers?longitudinal?occupies the whole breadth of the F ship, in an oblong way; and along the ribs of the steamer are two large Krench windows, which may be entirely \ pened, when weather allows it, and permit the fine \ breeze to enter and delight the passengers. The long table of the dining-room, of mahogany, is pierced with holes, in which are placed very elegant silver castors, containing each a bottle of wine, a tumbler, a bowl, salt, pepper,, two wine-glasses, and a decanter. The entire service of the table is of silver, gilt inside. Wu congratulate the passen'ers, who, exempt from sea eicknuM, are able to share such a bonne chert during their voyage from Kranoe to New Vork, and vice versa. The bread is made every day on board of the Union, and wo-jrere shown an apparatus for changing salt water htta'a sweet bever ge. The wine.-, claret, burgundy,, pjpt. sherry, madeira, are on the dally bill of fare, and champagne runs, freely twice or thrice a week. From the dining room, to which are adjoined the office and pantry, we return upon deck and tind ourselves before two guns, whioh are not peace-maker". guns, hut to b? used for salutes, and nlaced lik? trims in M fri. pate. , The Union la rigged with three nub. On the fore- , mMt t>h? carries three yards, main-top and royal. The mainmast, in consequence of its proximity to the chim ney, which is immediately forward, carries no square ' sails, but occasionally a spencer or stay-sail. The mizen ' is furnished with a gaff and spanker. Hhu cairies a jib . and flying jib. ! We shall now conduct our readers into the room called 1 "Chambre de 3de Clause ' (second price cabin.) This 1 room, we must confese, is as well distributed as the first ' one, excepting the meals, which are not perhaps as good. In the main cabin the arrangements are as comfortable as in he first. 1'here are 84 beds in the first I oabln; fire roomsaie furnial.ed with four beds each; one t with six, and the others with two, like the other steam- i ers. All the furniture is made of mahogany, carved in t style, and the chairs, arm-chairs, and bureaux are of a magnificent model. These last pieces are covered with , red crimson velvet, which look simple and very elegant, f The bedding Is as soft and good an desirable; and tho a berths are as airy as possible. n In short, the French steamer Union, whoso length on [, deck, from tafferel to night-heads, is 196 feet, with a breadth of beam of 44 feet, is a magnificent ship. We mast confess that the painting is not so clean as desirable, but the French government, after Its long delays, did not at best have sufficient time for the company to fit out this steamer a.< they desired to. We have been assured that the next steamer to come, the Philadelphia, will be a model of elegance. We cannot oonclude this article without speaking of the change of name of the Canada (and not the Christophe Colombus, as before said,) into the Union, and the three other steamers into American names This act of courtesy towards the American nation, though appreciated by us, was unnecessary. The Canada, discovered by Carter in 1434. was as good for a name as her present one. This, as a matter of course, is only our opinion.? We may be wrong, but we think so. We have also to mention a note which has been sent 1 to us signed by all the passengers of thu French steamer. 1 It is as follows :? "We the undersigned, passengers of the French steam- 1 er Union, desirous to render homage to the conduct of 1 Captain Hebert and bis officers, who gave us thu 1 greatest care and the choicest attention during all the voyage, have resolved, in order to give tho testimony of our gratitude in a public manner, to make known to the American people, the kind manner with which we have been treated by them.

Wheeling, the road not being confined to any particular line, or required to touch any particular point on the way thither, it has also been agreed that the city of Wheeling 1* to subscribe five hundred thousand dollars to the ltock of the company, and to seoure its prompt payment In a manner satisfactory to the railroad oompany.
