NEW YORK HERALD. %rw Vork. Tuesday, July 30, IMT. ^ The N?wi ftom Mexico. u We were yesterday enabled, by our Bp?cial P overland express from New Orleans to this ci y, ? to l?y before our readera, forty-eight hours in (1 advance of the mail, some very important news l' from Mexico, received at New Orleans by the ^ steamer Jno. McKun, which left Vera Cruz on n the 4th inatant. That'news has doubtless been n read and commented upon by every intelligent J" man inthe city, each of whom formed his own ^ opinio* ugen it. We, therefore, consider it unnecessary to refer to it further than to suy that the details of the news, so far as received, will be found on the outside of to-day's paper. More < minute particulars will lit given when we receive )a our full files of southern papers. ^ To Postmasters and I*ews|*per Subscribers. bu Hitherto it has been lawful for postmasters to receive subscriptions for newspsjiers, and for- c-, ward the money to the puuiisners, iree 01 ex- g|| pense. th Thin law was repeuled by an act passed on the j twenty-fifth day of April la*t, which act was to take effect ou the first day of July instant. We ^ were net aware of the repeal of the first men- tj tioned regulation, neither were the deputy postmasters throughout the country, uh we are informed, having, as we, believe, exercised the authority seated in theui by it since, as well as y( before the first of July. We yesterday learned the fact of its repeal, and heard further, that the (jJ has extended the time when it shall come i"to operation to the first of August next; after which ^ day payments of subscription must be forwarded through the post-office, direct to the proprietors { vf the respective journals. The Vlilted ItatM Bonded Warehouse-. ni ih? Security Agnlnst Fire. . The city of New York is the grand ville " tl'*ntrtp6l of this Western world?a city of ,w merchants and of merohandise. The most im- . portant of its mercantile institutions is the ni United States Bonded Warehouse, for the facilitation of mercantile transactions. On the 4th of ^ August next, the institution will h*ve been in operation one year; prior to which time it was an untried experiment in the United States, although it has been established in England ever , since the year 1803, where it has not only been triumphantly successful, but where it is regard- | ?d " as the greatest improvement that haB ever been made in their commercial and financial a P system In 1732, seventy years prior to its establishment in England, Sir Robert Walpole, then P%ai Premier?and if not the ablest of England's ^ premiers, he may be said to have been, histori- ^ ?ally, the first of that peculiar line of rulers? made a desperate effort to give England the bene lit of the warehousing system. But r#| his warehouse system, "which," he said, " will y( tend to make London a free port, and by come ^ quence, t/u market of the world," was unfortunately introduced into Parliament in connexion ^ with his famous " excise scheme," or tobacco projet, which seems to have suggested to that e great financier the idea of a warehouse system, aud was so confouuded with that excise schcme, as to share all the prejudices of the people against ^ excise, and, therfore, fell through. Seventy "years later, however, under the "Addington ministry," Walpole's system was carried out, and England and the world have since been cn- VC joying its advantages. We may well marvel at the tardiness with which England profited by"this qjmous and signal improvement," as McCulloch calls it; but what shall we say of that succeeding halt cen- M tury (from 1803 to 1846) of tardiness, during which we Americans looked upon this " obvious |n and sigual improvement," and still refused to adopt ill Well might we reproach ourselves with our dullness and stuuiditv. traits of chnra<-t?r nr< not so exclusively the property of the Dutch but ^ that the Anglo-Saxon rave may claim a share. ?e Bat u. better course now will be to go in at once, with heartland hand, for the full advantages of the of warehouseing system. Although it is more than a century since Sir Robert Walpole conceived the magnificent idea ^ of making London a " free port," it is not too H late for us to make New York what Walpole ^ would have made London. An immense ware- H< house has already been completed on Broadway, extending to New street, and is now filled with j. merchandise, from cockloft to'basement. Other and extensive warehcuses are constructed and be nettriy completed at the Atlantic Dock, Brooklyn, lit ior the storage of heavy kinds of merchandise, as de sugar, molasses, rum, he., which have hitherto in b?en warehoused in stores hired temporarily for pa that purpose in different parts of the city. The only drawback that has hitherto arisen tui "in the operation of the system in this city, has been in the rate of insurance exacted upon ware- {|-| housed goods. Although the bonded warehouse on Broadway has several division walls, yet the (ju communicating openings in these walls are (o such as to render the building equivalent to one large warehouse. That being the case, fire in- m surance companies are necessarily limited in the amount of risk taken to some five or ten Thousand dollars. The consequence is, that ^ there are not insurance companies enough to effect insurance upon all the merchandise wars- j housed, and so they quietly have taken advan- ^ tage of the fact to charge monopoly rates; and we suppose they might as well hitve charged gt two p?r cent, or two and a half, as the one and a half that they do cha ge. Under , ?>, r--.ii tn ?,r- vi |VHIi?(BUW*| UHi viuwtv III VVUCWtUI hu taken the matter in hand with a view ^ to render the bonded warehouse a safe w building for the storage of merchandise without any inturauc? a< .a//. And we think, from H| a careful examination of the hydraulic appara- p] tus just completed there, that the day is not far #| distant when importers will have contidence to o| snap their fingers in the face of all insurance j companies, and warehouse their merchandise ^ without any insurance, or at least, instead of having monopoly rates dictated to them by the oompamee, importers will dictate their own rates w to them, and from being dictatees become die- pr tators. l The Collector has, in fact, at one stroke, ef- ar fected one grand hydraulic insurance upon all the tj, merchandise in the warehouse. He has caused co the Croton water to be introduced in a large pipe m, upon every floor of the building, with an attach- rc rnent of hose upon every floor, of sufficient length ^ to reach every corner of the warehouse. Thishy- an draulic apparatus is of the most perfect kind, ,.0 and has been constructed under the immediate direction and supervision of Cornelius V. Anderson, Esq , chief of the fire department of New York, a gentleman whose judgment and skill, from many years of experience, will neither be w doubted nor disputed in this city. On Saturday last, according to public notice, the water was let into the attachments, and the apparatus fully, m and we are bound to say triumphantly, tested. The experiment showed that one minute was ami ly sufficient to transfer both hose and water te to any part of the boilding. To perfect h< the insurance, Mr. Lawrence has secured the services of four the most expert- 0I raced and efficient watchmen to be found in thi the city. They have also been firemen, and "' are men of character, in whom confidence may ' 7* be placed. Two of the?e night watchmen will be on guard every night, aud the warehouse is I ?? i constructed that a light or firt in any one part Hfc " the building.would, and must, be instantly per- | l?j ived by the?* men in ?ny other part, wherever ley may chance to be at the moment; and we re safe in saying that within, one minute om that moment, the water will be thrown pnn the fire with the whole power of the Croton recaure, which is very great in the low?*r part f the city, and in quantities sufficient, if reuired, to deluge the whole warehouse in leas lan ten minutes, a space of time too brief jr any thing short of saltpetre to gain inch headway, and, we believe, it has ot yet been decided whether even aaltttre will explode with a combustibility too rapid >r (he Croton to quench. The building is opened at sunrise in the orning, and the doors are closed at aunaet. o fire or light is allowed at all in the ware>nse, except under peculiar restrictions, in the sement or vault, where daylight never enters. Mr. Anderson haa given ua his opinion at the bonded warehouse ia now a safer lilding for the storage of merchandise, an any and every other building in the ty, unless it may be some one similarly tarded and protected from fire. We hope, for e credit of our city, that these facts may be ily examined, weighed and appreciated by imirtera and warehousers,whether in this or in forgn countries, and that they may tend to relieve ' m both trom anxiety and from exorbitant rutes insurance. Merchandise to the value of seven illions of dollars has, within less than one :ar, been warehoused in this citv. in the verv fancy of the system, and we have no doubt that indreds of millions will be safely warehoused > successive years, without the loss of a hun eth part of one per cent by fire. We are assured that no pains or expense will : spared *?n the part of the Collector to render le United States bonded warehouse a place for orage perfectly safe without insurance, and we IviBe all warehouses, and especiaHy foreign anufacturers and exporters, in whatever part of te world they m?y be, to submit to no iinposion of exorbitant rates of insurance. Let them aithouse their goods for a while without any urance, and they will soon bring the compaes to reason. Steamship Sarah Sands.?The iron steamip Sarah Sands, Captain Thompson, arrived in rt yesterday, safe and sound, after making a nnrkably good voyage of twenty days, from ; city of Cork, Ireland. She sailed from Liverpool on the 15th day of ne, with a large number of cabin and second )in passengers, and gaily tripped her way over ; Atlantic, till the 20th of that month, when >ortion of her valve gearing broke, causing mage, which it was found could not be reired at sea. Under the circumstances, the ptain thought it best to turn round, and steer : Coiit, which he accordingly did, and arrived :re by sails on the twenty-third. The repairing the machinery occcupied from the twenty-third the twenty-ninth, on which latter day the Sato Sands again put to sea and headed for New >rk, where she arrived, as we before said, yes-J..? : ?t j i Hjay uiorninij, saie ana sounu. The time that elapsed from her leaving Liver>ol, until tihe arrived here, waa thirty-three lys, during which time she got over a distance [ual to once and a half across the Atlantic, and mained in the port of Cork nearly a week, his rate of travelling is convincing proof that ,e Sarah Sands equals the expectations of her ojectors. We are glad to hear that the passengers were iry well pleased with the vessel and with the immander, as will be seen by the following ird:? We, tba undersigned, passengers on board the Sarah ndn. cannot take leave of her commander, Captain lompson, wit''out expressing to him oar very warm tnka for hi* politeness ana attention, and for the ll?tv which h<* haa m&nifmitjth tn Ho m?p? <n i power to relieve the monotony of a pannage protractbeyond our expectations. We would also state, that our opinion the Sarah Sands la both aremarkably good i boat, and a very fast sailer, and that the accident iioh happened to her machinery and caused our deltion, was one in no way affecting the principle of her sprier, but one to which all steamboats are liable, hen It Is taken into consideration that we have boon ce and a half times across the Atlantic, besides being arly a week in the Cove of Cork, we think the p?rrmanoe of the Sarah Sands highly creditable, and we ,ve no doubt of her fully answering the expectations I her builders, and of her proving a mat aocommoda>n te the mercantile community and to the public genrally. We wish Captain Thompson and the Sarah Sands uch suocess. Signed? rlll!am Bouelbee, Thomas H. Smith, snry Van Wart, jr. Charles Widder, sorge Wood, George S.

Patterson, We have no doubt that the Surah Sands will icome a great favorite with the travelling puband we are rejoiced to know that the accint which occurred to her machinery, nas not the least lowered her in the estimation of her ssengers. We wish her a prosperous voyage on her rern. Tu? Galway Industrial Society.?Sometime ice we published & circular, written by Henry irry Hyde, Esq., Secretary of the Galway Instrial Society, of Galway, Ireland, addressed the benevo.ent portion of the American 0| le, soliciting heir aid, by contributions of oney, in such sums as they could conveniently iare, to assist them in prosecuting the holy and imane purposes tor which that society was esblished. Sirce that time, Dudley Persse, Esq., of this ityi w ho, with other gentlemen, has kindly connted to act as agent of the society in this city, :nt to the society a draft for forty pounds erling, the proceeds of his exertions i collector for the cause. The mnlv of le society to this letter will be found on the aside of to-dny's Herald, and on behalf of the .mishing, yet industrious people of Ireland, e invite for it a calm and careful perusal. We also solicit the contributions of our people, nd in the language of the secretary of the Socity, will repeat, that even one shilling will be r service, and may psrhHps save a life. Let no ne be deterred from contributing, no matter ow small the sum may be that he can devote to lis humane object. N*w York, Havrk and Paris Express.?It ill b? seen, from an advertisement under the oper head, in this day's paper, that Messrs. ivingston, Well* k. Co., have completed their rangements for establiahing an express from is city to Paris and Havre, and that they will mmence business immediately. The established of the French line of steamships was, as we marked on a former occasion, eagerly taken : vantage of by our enterprising country people d turned to profit before the first voyage was mpleted. __ Important Sale.?The elegant ships loscius, ddons, Garrick, and Sheridan, belonging to r. E. K. Collins* line of Liverpool packets, ill be sold at auction this morning, at the Mer. lania' Exchange.

Doty, from Rio de Janeiro, ? puts us in possesion of files of the Jornal dt n Commercio, and the O'Mercantil, to the 3d ult. ^ They contain no news. The U. S. brig liain- m bridge, Commander Williamson, arrived at Rio on the 2d, from Ilha Grande, and reported that the whale bark Yeoman, of Plymouth, Mass., a( was seized by the Brazilian government, and or- w dered to Rio Janeiro. It was presumed by many Americana that she would forget to stop at Rio, and make the best of her way home. The U. S. y< frigate Columbia, Commodore Roaseau, was in p1 the harbor of Rio when the Rosina left. u By thin arrival we have, no news from the river, except the following note from ourcorres- gt pondent:? Butitoi Ayrks, May 14, 1847. ol We have now the pleasura of advlaiug you that a proa- V pect haa opened for a termination to our political diffloultiea, in the arrival of the plenipotentiaries of Kngland ?' aud Krauce.

In addition to this attraction, the Misses Weils, and La Petite Maryanne, wa who are much admired, and beoome very great favorites, will exhibit the grace and elegance of accom- m< pllshed dancers. There is little wonder at the success oo of the proprietors, so long as they employ good artists, ju The attendano* on visiters is very regular, and Mr. A.

The graceful and elegant dancing of M'Ue pr Adelaide Lehman, and the dexterity and skill of Schmidt Lehman were much admired, and they were applauded in every scene of the ballet. The " Pas Styrlen" by M'Ues Julia and Flota Lehman was executed with great solence, considering their youth, and the "Pas de Deux," by Mons. Schmidt and M 'lie Adelaide,evlnoed a thorough El knowledge of the beautiful accomplishment of dauctug. In fine, the fantastioal ballet " L'Arbre Maglque" was *? well filled by the family, Lehman, and rendered with I" such grace and style or oomic action, as to call forth the unanimous approbation of the audlenoe.

Since that period, the work has Aeen commenced, under the direction of Henor Meuci, and the following is what has m been done up to the present time, and which we shall th soon nee ooncluded The satin celling has been put in new; It* ground is white, resting on a oornioe, the ornaments of whloh are gilt in relief. In E the centre, from whenoe depends tbe chandelier, *i circular ornament*, also in relief and gilt, have been made.

The passed ai seasons had so injured this edifice. that it made a repair, ci in/ormu, indispensable. Much discolored and stained, rc with broken and dirty boxes, it was shameful to Havana, and also to the same of this beautiful theatre, that it O should be opened to the publlo In such a state. Senor R Marti,knowing this, not only has made the nece.isary remedy, but has done muoh more than was hoped for; for ti which we cannot do less than congratulate him aud our- w selves at the same time. Senor Marti will now have a ri palpable proof that the publio never leave unreoom- b< pensed the sacrifices which are made in tbe enterprise p which he sustains, and this conviction in an tmprnario, h of the importance of 8t.
