?I . "1111 mm iMpii i n 11 N ? rfEW YORK HERALD. v. w York. W?dDM*qr, July 91. IH4V. daw! fro? Knfop*. Th? speculators mid Hour dealers are already looking out fnr the arrival of the American Bieani hip Washington, which left Liverpool on the lOrh of thia month. She will bring six days later news from England, and they are desirous of ascertaining the kind of weather that prevailed since the sailing of the last vessel. The Washington is in her eleventh day, and may arrive to-morrow. It is contidently expected that she will make an excellent passage. The Slexlc?n War. We publish in this day's Herald the interesting correspondence between Mr. Buchanan, the Secretary of State, and the Mexican Minister I of Foreign Affairs, relative to the proposition made to the latter by Mr. Buchanan, I on the part of our government, that the two | countries should appoint commissioners to I meet at Jalapa or Havana, with full power, to conclude a treaty of peace. The Mexican governmentdeclined toapi>oint such commissioners until the blockade of their ports was raised, and their territory evacuated by the American troops, and Mr. Buchanan replies that such a proceeding is withoutaparallel in the history ofmoderntimes, and wholly inadmissdble. As this ofl?-r on the part of the American government hus been refused, as it was on former occasions, the President, Mr. Buchanan says, will not again renew it until he has evidence lhat it will be accepted by the Mexican government, but in order to hasten peace, he has despatched Mr. Trial to the ?eat of war, olothed with ful powers to conclude - ' ? ?cr.: I terms 'Of t u?nnuc treaty ui iiwiiueii>i>. Such is th* purport of Mr. Bucnanan's letter, tend1 ring again the offer of peace, on fair and honorable terms; but there is not muc i probability that Mr. Trial's cervices as commissioner will be called into requisition for some time to come, or at least, until the capitol snail have been reduced; because, up to the 20 h of June last, a quorum of Congress, to whom the letter was referred, could not be procured to act upon it. General Scott had given notice to the Mexican Government that he would give them to the 30th of June to act upon the letter, aiid if nothing was done, he would march on the capitol. We presume that Generals Cadwallader and Pillow had arrived at General Scott's headquarters, as *hedid not intend to take up his march to the capital until ha was reinforced by the new troops under the command of those officers. MtikliAAttAn aT tKia Uttav urill i Iia United 3'ates a vant deal of good, by placing her ui a proper position before the world in regard to this war. Peace is again offered to the Mexicans, 1 and by them rejected, under an excuse which ihey knew was invalid; and notwithstanding this refusal, our government sends a gentleman high in its confidence to take advantage of the first evidence of a pacific disposition on the part of the Mexicans, and enter into a treaty honorable to both nations. Such magnanimous conduct is without parallel. It places the United States in a proud and enviable position, and her example in this case would serve as a model for other oountries to follow. The next news from the seat of war will no doubt be very interesting. "We shall learn by it whether the Mexican government acted upon th? letter or not. In case they did so favorably, we may of course look for a suspension of hostilities, and soon afterwards of the establishment of a permanent treaty r\f It' lhf>v fit A nrtf wm ahull annn nf Geo.Scott's advance to the capital,a bloody battle, perhaps, at Rio Frio, and newB that the ancient capital of the Aztecs is in the possession of our gall mt soldiers. If the news should be of the latter kind, it will put an entirely different face on the war. "We must, in that case, make up our minds to overrun and conquer the whole country, and arrive at the conclusion that the Mexican government and people are determined to precipitate their tatc, and are desirous of being blotted out of the map of nationality. N*w You State Agricultural Socikty.? We referred in general terms to the next fair and cattle show ot the New York State Agricultural Society, which is to take place in the ensuing full, a few days since; but we did not at the time know of the place where it would be held. We have since learned that it will be held at Saratoga Springs, one of the most delightful spots in the country, on the fourteenth, fifteenth, and sixteenth days of September next. From what we have gathered, we are induced to believe that the coming exhibition will surpass all preceding ones, in point of interest to farmers and agriculturists, as well as to visiters. The premiums amount to the sum of three thou* sand four hundred dollars, and the grounds elected for the show, are close to the Congress springs, and cover an ar?*a of twenty-three ceres. The same description of buildings as were used at the former exnibitions, will be erected at this exhibition, for the display of fruits, flowers, vegetables, farming implemenis, TK? firat n?v Tii.a/tatr lfltk will k. devoted to the examination oy the judges, of tue different animals and articles exhibited. On the afternoon of the 9ame day, the trial of ploughs will take place, and on Thursday morning the great trial ot skill between the best ploughmen in the State will take place. Altogether, this will be i\ i>rand affair, and we doubt not that it will reflect credit on our 3 ate, a* well I as or. fhr patriotic gentlemen who comprise the officers of the society. The .ist of premiums is much larger thnn any heretofore offered, and of conrae will ensure a much more extensive competition. We shall endeavor to report the doings of this /reat exhibition, for the benefit of our readers. The managers, we think, made a peculiarly fortunate selection of Saratoga Springs. It is in the immediate centre of an extensive agricultural section, and can be reached from all parts of the State easily by railroad. Later raow the Pacific.? Lieutenant 11a wisen, of the United States Navy, came pas senger in the ship Norma, arrived yesterday from Havana. He la bearer of despatches from Com. Biddle and Gen. Kearny, dated Monterey, California, March 18th. Lieut. H. came by way of Valparaiso and Panama, but brings nothing of interest from the Western coast. The difficulties existing between Peru and Bolivia, it was apprehended would result in war. The Penirian navy, consisting of two brigs and two schooners,were anchored off Arica, prepared to assist in defence of the town, which was threatened by the Bolivians The United States frigate Savannah, Capt. Mervine, waa to sail from Valparaiso, June 1st, for Rio and New York bout the 12th May, the whale ahip Stonington was spoken, 75 days from St. Bias; she war* bound to Chili. Her Captain had been made prisoner by the Mexicans at St. Bias ; but was subsequently released and sailed for the United States _ From Cuba.?By the arrival of the packet ship Norm, Capt. Ellis, we have files of the Mariana and Diaro, published at Havnns, to the Uth inst. inclusive. Capt. E. reports the health of Havana good?never better. The foreign consals are giving clean bills of health, for vessels bound to Euroj>e and other ports. The British mail steamer of the 1st, from Vera Cruz, h;id arrived; Hut her accounts have been anticipated via New Orleans T?* C^pnt**?Th* Watuuno Placw ?<In the ttrly part of tlw nmoi there wee i general di position among ouroitixensto spend a portion of the summer months in the country watering places, and imbibe their medicinal waters, and inhale their pure air, lor the purpose of health and comfort; but the | extreme warm weather of the last few daye j has driven away thousands who at first had i no intention of going beyond our corporation | limits. We have no doubt that seven-eighths of our fashionable and wealthy |>eople have left lor ; the watering places, and the remaining eighth would leave if they could. I nder these circumstances, the city is in possession of the lower million, and the two shilling side of Broadway is occupied by the unshaven and unshirted. The unfortunates who are not in the country, might as well be there, for their presence is not felt in our streets or promenades. It is fashionable for fashionable people to follow the fashion, and as it is fashionable for the fashionables to be at Keyport, Niagara, Saratogs, or some other resort of the fashionables, of course the fashionables who cannot go think it unfashionable to be seen in public during the time that it is fashionable for people of fashion to be away. In order, therefore,*not to appear unfashionable, they lock their doors, and are "not within?gone to the springs"?to all who enquire for them. It is not of those, however, that we purposed to speak, for they are desirous of remaining as quiet as possible until they emerge from behind their window blinds, and acain Dromenade the fush tonable streets; but of those who really have gone, and are now drinking new life from nature's fountains. They can be seen in the day time at Keyport, Niagara, Saratoga, Lake Niahopac, Nahant, Brighton, Long Branch, and other places, drinking water by the pail-full, or Lving their limbs in pure ocean water, and in the evening tripping upon the light fantastic toe, amid the rustling oi silks and satins and the squeaking of new pumps. For the fashionable part of our population the sommer is a glorious time, and there can be no better place to see American society than the places to which they resort, like swallows, as soon as the heat becomes uncomfortable in the city. The fair daughters of our merchant princes,with all their dazzling beauty, decorated with diamonds and costly jewelry? modest and bashful?the rich planters from Virginia and other States, ardent as a southern sun can make them, as Father Ritchie says, and the fortune hunter, can all be seenldancing, ogling and doing the agreeable, from the rising of the sun till late at night. Like butterflies, they enloy the passing hour; and we do not know but their philosophy is the best, particularly if their pockets will stand the fun. From all we have learned, the hotel keepers at all the watering places are in ecstacies, while counting the number of plates that are daily set on their extended tables, and are reaping a rich harvest. In Saratoga alone, we understand there are upwards of two thousand visiters, and every train adds to the number. Balls, hops, concerts, and courtships, are the order of the day, and all seem happy and contented. Egad, we envy them; and were it not that our subscribers are so desirous of reading our sheet every morning while taking their.coffee and toast, we would be templed to thiow the Mexiean war overboard for a week, and participate in their fun. But they won't be satisfied without seeing the Herald, and|therefore, we must stick to the typeB, and find work for the devil?although on* might suppose, in this age of humbug and rascality, that the devil hits his hands full. Niagara , too, we are informed, is crowded; and so, in fact, are all the watering places. If the heat be not excessive to-morrow, we shall endeavor to go as far as Staten Island, and try to enjoy ourselves as well as we could at Saratoga. One thing is certain?we will not plant ourselves behind the blinds. From British West I.mdiks. We have files of the Time*, published atKingston, Jamaica, to the 24th ult. A new project of appointing the clergy to the magistracy, seems to occupy considerable attention among the people of the colony. The sybtem is looked upon generally in a very favorable manner. The various small pad .L._ ?r v...? nsiiCB ill liic viciliiijr vi mu^oiun, oic niiuujcu by frequent robberies, and the inhabitants feeling their lives insecure, have called upon the authorities for the reorganization of a police?the present one being useless. in Manchester, the prospects are represented bp deplorable, the low prices of coffee being inadequate to meet the cost of production, and very large fields having been thrown up. The weather had been very dry, but lately a few fine showers have fallen. Bermuda.?We have a large parcel of papers from Bermuda, some of them as late as the 16th mat. No news. Theatricals. Bowcar Thcatks.?A glance at the bill let forth for this svenlng. at the Bowery, will convince *uoh of our oltisens as with to spend the evening pleasantly, that ihat theatre is the plaoe for them to go to. There they will see two oapltal dramas, and a comedy performed in the best manner by an excellent company, and see Messrs Burke and Marshall In some of their most celebrated parts. The pieces to be performed, are the grand drama of "Massaalello;" the drama of the "Robber's Wife," and the comedy of the "Young Widow." Our friends need not be frightened at the heat, for the Bowery is one of the best ventilated places of amusement in the oity. Castle Garden.?'This jardin manifique it fraichtur is now becoming the resort of the fashionable people of this oity. tvery evening the balcony Is crowded?some walking, others reclining on sofas, and all Inhaling the bracing and strengthening air by which this delightful retreat Is surrounded. Tho contemplative mind oan expand on thr view of the finest bay In ths world, with sailing and steam vessels passing to and fro, with their beautiful pennants floating on the air. The musical and dramatlo mind can alio enjoy Itself by listening to the respeotlve overtures by the orchestra, and beholulng the sterling oomio performances of Holland, Walcot, Misses Phillips and Clarke, Mrs. Isherwood, and the other members of the vaudeville company, at present en the "New Footman" will be perforated, followed by a variety of dancing and singing, and the renowned Herr Cllne will give hi* unrivalled performance on the tight rope. Pilmo'i Opisa Home?The Krenoh ballet of the Lehman family wai attended, last night, by a very good audience, and the performanoe went off amidst bursts of laughter and deserved applause. The "Pas Styrien," by Misses Julia and Flora Lehman, was danced with a grace and skill very remarkable for children of ten 01 twelve years of age. We have seen, with great pleasure, the dai oe of M'lle Adelaide Lehman, whose charming faee, whose sweet form, are vivified by a very chaste style of dancing, a true science of her art. She possesses the appearance of Augusta and the knowledge of Blangy We hope our remark will bo appreciated by all tne persons who have witnessed the performance of the ballet, and that these linrs will be an attraction to all those who have failed to go to Palmo's theatre. Now for the ballet.: "L'Arbre Magi que," being something which makes us remember the oelebrateu Havel family. The artists and their tricks are new and very good. The plot ot the play is always upon the same subject so often employed by the ballet wrlUrs?a father, a daughter, a lover, a rival, and a fairy j the father otjects to his daughter's marrying the youug man, and wishes her to become the wl^e of the down, and a fairy protects the love of the two youths. This plot gives a large scope to the danoers, and Monsleurs and M'llss Lehman have filled it with grand ability. The farce is 7read everywhere in the arhrt magtqv* (the magio tree) be fishing business is ^vn; good one,' and Mr. Cristlan Lehman, the father of the family, we believe, makes a oapiial Pierrot (merry Andrew). We have seen also In this ballet, Mies Matbllde Lehman, who, although not so pretty and so graceful as her sister, possesses, however, a great deal of talent. For Mr. Schmidt, he Is an Habilt dsruiur. and we hope we shall see him often on the boards Nothing to be said about the Knglish p ayers, we think them quite useless for attraction, and perhaps Mons l.ebman will do better without them. We understand that the French company of vaudeville# has been engaged (by letters onh) to oome to this city, to appear at Palmo's theatre We should like to see them amongst us, but we fear that our b<^ will not be realize 1. '1 here is no man but Mr. Lehman himself, to secure them their salary, and we doubt whether be will increase bis expenses The IU*el family has decidedly hired I'almo's Theatre for the middle of August Mr. Antolne Ravul has signed the bargain with Mr. Burke, the present manager of the Chamber* street theatre.

Damage trilling. American Institute, Tuesday, July 20 ?This being of the legitimate semi-monthly meetings of the club, and the day by no means favorable for extra physical exertions, the members mustered in limited numbers The proceedings, notwithstanding, were not the less lnterestiug or important, as many communications were read and remarks made, all bearing upon the main object oi the club, the acquirement and promotion of agricultural knowledge, and its diffusion through all classes of farmers. Mr. Wakainan, (the main pillar of the Institute.) having taken the chair, the (secretary read th* programme of the '20th Anutl Kalr, to be held at Caslle Garden, commencing the 30th October next, exhibiting the outlines tor the first and second week ot exhibition Among the usual objects which will, on that occasion command the attentive consideration of the conveution. we tlud, too, amongst the many that are peculiarly recommended to the Dublio attention, the sublet, ot wool and woolens, and the indispentiable nec-sslty for the advancement of agricultural science ; of the establishment of colleges and schools, for the teaching and practising agricultural pursuits. Upon the former topie, (wool) no subject of paramount importance cau stand in competition with it;?ot only as a commodity of internal utility, in every view it can be regarded but eventually as a not improbable article of export to countries where (as represented to the club by an experienced resident in Mexloo) the sheep are only propagated for the mutton. 'i be Institute, therefore, emphatically call upon all the different State* to produce temples oftheir res pectlve wools, and the genealogy of their breed, in order that, by comparison with the best European specimens, which they possess, by tbe liberality and publio spirit of an accredited agent, whose interest extended beyond the limits of his embassy, to tbe hall ol the ins' itate. An opinion may be iormed of the quality of the breed necessary to ooultitute the ob jeot contemplated on the latter sutject, " agricultural sohools or colleges '' in the States of the Union. It Is too far advanced in this proud age of civilization to admit an otyeotion. Tbe experience of continental Europe haa furnished substantial monuments to the spirit that nrged, the spirit that fostered, and the unperishable spirit that flourished by such institutions; and weak must be the government that cannot foreshadow. In the result, the employment and enlargement of tbe Intel ieotual faculties, with the healthful and profitable result# of the pbysioal powers from youth to manhood, and the ooi sequent acquisition of independence, as Individuals or collective bodies. Tbe pages of last year's history of Europe are darkened by the records of plague, pestilence and famine The people confine themselves from ignorance orwantof diffusive knowledge of agriculture,to one particular plant; upon that they " lived and moved, and nad their being " It was struck, it perished, and with I it their hopes, their refuge, their lives. Had they knowl- I edge, how many substitutes could they not have devised' Had they schools, how many impediments could the; not have placed In the path of tbe devourln?en*iny ! Who can, from such an example of ignorance and stolidity, refuse to sanction an endowment whose blessings must crown, not only our present generation, but raise up for tbe general benefit of the whole human family, a raee of universal benefaotors diffusing, as It haa been our glorious privilege to do. life and comfort all over the face of the less favored worldT The remaining proceedings of the Club war* confined to the reading of a translation on the longevity of trees. A communication from the Governor of Palermo, acknowledging the honor of being elected a member of the Institute Also s letter from the U. 8. Consul at Oeneva, acknowledging the same honor, and reoommending some doien of Italians as'meinber*, also, .wr Grey, a long resident lu Mexloo, gave an unfavorable view 01 the pi ogress of agriculture in the northern parts of that country.

On Thursday, Jufe 10th. the United State* transport ship Atlas, witn six companiesof marines, bound to Vera Crus. arrived off the Mcro Castle The commander of the regiment, desirous of conynunicatlng with the Consul. and of procuring fresh provisions for the troops, despatched a boat with Lieuts Baker, Hich, and Jones, of the marine regiment, and George 1). Twiirgs. aid-dc-camp to lien. Twiggs, onshore for that purpose On approaching the Moro we were hailed by the sentry and ordered not to enter Lieut Rich then spoke to the guard in Spanish, and requested to see the officer of the guard, who accordingly came, and having inquired the reason* To whloh we wished entering the port, gave us permission to do to. In going up the harbor we passed close by the guard-ship, and though observed by her officers.were not directed to stop; supposing, therefore, the permission acoorded bv the commandant of the Moro was all that was requisite,we proceeded to land.whlch we did at the government steps in preaenoe of the guard there pouted. A moment after, we were met by a oouple of officials, who inquired the manner of passing the < astle. and desired us to acoompany them to the office of the oaptaiu of the port. We did so, and gave a statement of the name of our ship, where from, where bound, number of our troops, name of our commander, and that there was no diiease on board the vessel, with the full particulars of our entry into the harbor, which statement was taken down by them In writing. The adjutant of the port then said wc had done wrong in landing. We Immediately informed him we were ignorant of the laws of the port, which it whs far from our wish or intention to violate. ana that ir we una ininngea any law we were not 10 blame, as it bad been unintentional on nur part, and with the consent and cognizance of those whose duty it was to trach strangers to aroid, not to lead them into error: yet, rather than be the cause of difficulty, we would at onoe return to our ship To this he answered:?'"As you are now on shore you may finish your businri* and then return to your vessel" Notwithstanding this second expressed permission, we were told when desirous of returning, that we oould not do so until we had each paid a fine of (300, which we refusing to do, our boat was seized and placed under a guard, our men finding a home aboard the bark Louisa, of Philadelphia, at the invitation of her captain, John Uailagher, whose kindness to them and ourselves, and the many offers of assistance from the American shlp-msHters in port, we are happy, with gratitude, to acknowledge. Lleuts Baker and Rich, with a view of obtaining our release, o. lied upon the Captain Oeneral, who promised to issue an order to that effect?but so far from this premise being complied with, we were the next afternoon oontined in the quarters of the captain of the port., and only released at the intervention of our consul, (Gen. Campbell,) who strenuously exerted himself to procure a remission of the penalty, and suooeeded in so doing, qualified by the condition that the ship should firstenter and be visited by the health officer. This the consul stated in a letter to the colonel commanding, and nent it through the medium of the government, all other communication with the vessel being denied, for which slight service a bill of $41 " > was afterwards presented to the consul and by him paid. The colonel replied he had ordered the captain of the transport to bring her in, which he refused, being charterod only for the ports of Vera Cruz and the Brazos; and having no power to compel him, he enclosed a certincaie irom luo surgeon oi lue regiment, certifying that thero was no disease among the troops, which he hoped would obviate the necessity of the vessel's entering, it was not, however, no deemed, and it being considered requisite that some one should go on b?ard to make known the facts of the case, Lieuts. Baker and Rich paid the fine, and were permitted to leave, while we. adhering to our resolution of non-payment, were detained as prisoners ; the consul applied for permission to have our trunks landed through the custom house and paying the duties, but this the authorities peremptorily refused. The name day (the 20th) the Atlas sailed. For several days we were threatened with imprisonment, but the government oontented themselves with restricting us to the city limits, and exercising a rigid scrutiny over all our actions. On the 27th, the U. S. man-of-war schr On-ka-hy-e arrived, having on board a member of Congress, and a distinguished judge of the Supreme oourt of one of the Southern States. A consultation was held by these gentlemen, the consul, and officers af the schooners, to devise the course most expedient for us to pursue. They considered the whole procedure an outrageous one, and the fine Imposed most unjust, but a* we were soliticous of taking the field they advised the puvment of the fine by the oonsul under a protest, whereby we did not acknowledge its justice, or relinquish the position we bad assumed^ but merely to so teu porarily arrange the matter as to enable us to proceed to our respective duties in Mexioo This course HonlHurl fn nnraiiA atirl tViM nmiuul hftvinir A.mmlllUHfi the payment of the fine. *? ^btained our passports. and It*ft < n the morning of tbe lsr\Jt being rumored that in the interview above alluded to mtween tbe captain general anil Lieuts Baker and Ricb, language Insulting to that functionary bad by one of these gentlemen been used, we addressed. with the approbation of our consul, a letter to his excellency on the subjeot, of which the following is a copy : Havana, June SO, 1847. Sir?Inasmuch as it is currently reported that one of our brother offloers?a party in tbe unpleasant difficulty with tbe authorities of this port?In a conversation with your excellency relative thereto, used certain improper expressions, and as tbe imprevsion appears general that the said officer was delegated to act lur the whole, we deem ita duty iucuiubent upon ourselves to state that if suoh expressions have been used, they have been and still are without oar approbation or eogniiance It is fkr from beiug characteristic of Americans to treat with disrespect the regularly constituted authorities of anyplace much less to insult them in the perlormance of their official duties; and as Americans, we feel an honorable pride in stating that from a country whose boast is equality of right*, there is also due respect and reverence paid by Us citizens to tbe feelings of individuals.

To his Excellency Don Leopold O'Donfckll, Captain General of Cuba. The authorities themselves admit we were led into the commission of tbe error by iheir officer*, who were to blame in allowing us to enter the port and city; yet notwithstanding this admission, they decide by a strange andauamolous doctrine,that we, though innocent, must bear the chains of punishment, which should by every principle of right be worn only by the guilty. Tbu true r ason for the outrage to which we have been subjected is the sympathy felt by the Spanish for the Mexican nation, and their dally growing hatred to that great republio, whose dustluy they Know is to achieve that liberty for others she so nubly won for herself, and now so proudly wears, the bribgtest jewel of her princely diadem. We have the satisfaction of knowing that our oonduot in this matter has met the approbation of our countrymen abroad, and also of those foreigners who have view?n An Imna^tial litfKt Pftf thtt infnriTl&tlnn O# OUT countrymen at tioine, and to correot a falsa statement, the present In made, and will, in du? time, be lubmltted to the government at Washington, with the hope and convlotion that our oourse in this unfortunate affair will reoaivo of both their favorable coniideration.
