MeKeever, the commandant of the Brooklyn Navy Yard, received orders for the construction of one of the four large steamers intended for the Navy. The or- j der was received in the morning, and Capt. Mc* I Keever, with his usual promptitude, issued directions for the work to commence forthwith, and by one o'clock the same day preparations were made for building. A large ging of men were engaged in clearing the immense chip house in which the steamer is to be built?removing the big gun?getting out the timber? clearing away water tanks, chain eables, &e kc ; and the business has progressed with such spirit that the keel is nearly completed, and wil! be laid on the ways to-morrow. Her dimension* are to be as follows:? BotwMn perpendicular*, 910 ft. 0 In.

Captain McKeever, on Tuesday morning, in company with Col. Grice, Mr. Copeland, the celebrated engineer, and several gentlemen of the Navy, made a visit of eiHminntion to the steamship Sarah Sands, and the French steamer Union. Capt.Thompson, oftheSarah Sanda, received thegantlemen with his accustomed politeness and attentioif, and furnished them with much information in relation to the construction of his vessel. The office of the French steamer were equally kind and attentive. We have no doubt that in the building of the staamer at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, there will be nothing wanting to render her not only a val uable auxiliary to the right arm of our national defence, for which she is intended, l>ut will reflect credit upon all engaging in her construction. W? are greatly indebted to Mr. Mason, th?> Secretary of the Navy, for directing the ship to be built here. News from Mexico?Prospects or Peace.? We arrived at the conclusion Home tima since, I that it was puerile to form an opinion of the termination of the war between the United State? and Mexico, from the conflicting accounts that | we were daily receiving, and made up our rniud not to refer to the question again until our army vtbh either in possession of the enemy's capital, or (.within n few days* march of it. We were strengthened in this determination, when we heard of the President having despatched Mr. Trirt, in the capacity ol pacificator, clothed with authority to conclude a treaty of peace, the moment after the Mexican government had come to ita senses. These contingencies have occurred. Our army is, if not actually in possession of the city of Mexico, very near it, as it is understood that General Scott took up his march on or about the first of July; and judging from the news lately received from the warquarter, we arc inclined to think that there is a probability of peace being very sooil restored. The Rtpuhlicano .of the 25th of June, a paper very hostile to the United States, says that rumors, which it calls very alarming, were in cir- I culation in the capital. It was said that theMcx- I (>u,l U/>r>?rl?il tn tin- mediation ol England. That the English Secretary of Legation had been down to Fuebla, and returned on <hr 24th. That the object of his viait wan to negotiate with Gen. Scott a treaty of peace, and thatthe terms agreed upon between them, would be the surrender of the Culifornias to the Americans; the recognition of the independence of Texas, and the acknowledgment of the line of 36 degrees as the Northern boundary between the United States aud Mexico. Wtiat foundation thetse rumors were based upon we know not, but the article in the Bepublirana may have been dictated by General Santa Anna, with a view of accustoming the people to ttlk of peace. It is btrongly suspected that he is in fa7orof peace, as much in consequence of the defeat at Cerro Gordo, as the conviction that a continuance of the war, cannot but be disastrous to his designs, as well as from the fact that there exists a large peace party in the country, whose sentiments are daily issued by their organs. There is another important faet. Mr. Buchanan's letter was published in this same Rrpuhlicano, immediately after it was received by the Mexican Executive, without n call for its publication from any source?and even in an extra ol that paper, in advance of its regular publication There wan nothing in that letter that the Mexicans could object to. *lt wia highly conciliatory in its tone, and breathed friendship and a denre lor peace, in every line. What wan it published fori Giving it publicity stirrly would not strengthen the war party?rather, it would weaken it, by nhowing the madness and folly of refusing pence from a country, the Chief Magistrate of which, on the part of his twenty millions of constituents, expressed his ardent desire that harmony and good feeling between the two countries should be restored as quickly as possible. There is vet another fact, too, which, when joined to the others, makes the case still stronger. We allude 10 the apparent difficulty in obtaining a quorum of Congress together, to whom the letter of Mr. Buchanan was referred to act upon. Mr. K.inkhead asserted that a large proportion of the members were in favor of peace. If they are, we can interpret their not meeting to the fear of encountering the war party, which has always been so favorably inclined to continue the war, and procrastinating it, with the hope of eventually wearing out our patience. I'utting tkese facts together, we are inclined to the opinion that peace is near at hand. There inay be a battle between Puebla and the capital; but whether successful or the reverse for the Mexicans, it would be favorable to peace. If successful, it would strengthen the peace p*rty,which is fftlalag eowsih iwy dayj tad iftfe* reverse, li wo?ld weaken tfca war party. ' Santa Anna it deep, cunmg and aelfish?hii depth and cunning are used towards hie own advancement, and it ! quite immiturial to him whether the interests of hia country suffered or i not, ao long ns he forwarded iiis own private I designs. by tike Fr?Mh Steamer#. We preaent our readers with the exact tableau of the tariff of postages which haa been aettled upon by he agents of the French steamer*, for all letters aent to Franco or to England. All letters and parrels ought to be put in the post* office: for the mail agent of the French ateam ship company has orders to receive no correspondence but by the hands of the American postmaster.

The weight of a letter for Frauc? ought not to be ovtr a quarter of an ounce, whilst for England and America, the allowance is half an ounce. We must say, however, that the postage of a letter sent to (England by the French steamers is two cents more. The passage of the French steamers will be as quick as the others, according to the first trip of the Union; and then there is uu inducement to patronise an enterprise, the conductors of which are taking the greatest pains to satisfy the public, who have so liberally patronised their undertaking. ______ Nlw Vork, Havre and Faris Express Aoency.?We are desired to stats that Livingston, Wells & Co. have engaged the services of a most respectable and accomplished perso to execute the commissions for France, which may be entrusted to their care.

There was no possible mean* of stopping the fugitive cars, and ?n they continued down the grade, while the accommodation passenger train from Norwich was approaching Upon turning a short curvn through a high ledge, the engineer of the train saw the two cars close npon him, and while he was in tbo act ot reversing the engine, a collision took plaoe.

The pauiotloardor, the gallantry, the acknowledged ohlvalry of our citizen soldiers, the military enthusiasm displayed by them upon all occasions, their Jealous regard for the national honor, and particularly the gallant conduct of our army at the lata battle at Buena Vista?where the brave Zabriskle fell?would seem to have aroused a national spirit among our oltlaeas. on the occasion of the removal of his remains through this city, and accordingly crowds flock* d forward to join in the oeremony. At half-past 4 the body was received, when mniute guns were fired by the military and civic authorities, headed by the Mayor, at Pier No. I, Last River, In solemn silence After a little delay, the military. Mayors and corporations of the eltles of New York and Brooklyn formed In procseslon. and turned Into the Battery, from whence they proceeded through Broadway as far as Chambers street, In the following order:?First, band mounted, playiog the ''Dead Maroh In Saul,'' followed by the (Rrman Hussars; next, the Oernian Horse Guards.

The Mayor aud Corporation?the military, and all who participated in the solemn ceremony, exhibited a praiseworthy fueling of patienoe under tne heavy rain and storm that prevailed during the entire time, which should afford additional gratification to the friends ol the lamented d^oeased, and be taken as additional testimony of the high regard in which he had been htld. We shall onlv say, in conclusion, over the remains of the mourned Zabriskie?" JJulcr it iltcorum tit pro palria mart." That Ji nk?Caitle Gauds*.?All doubt in relation to the legitimacy of this vessel, or whatever it may be called, having been removed, those who have heretofore been unbelievers will of courM satisfy their curiosity forthwith. It la not very likely that we shall ever hare another specimen of marine architecture of this kind in the port of New York, as the arrival of the Keying was purely accidental, and tnose who negluot the opportunity now offering, will regret It when it is too late. The thousand* dally visiting this vessel, is the best evidence of the sensation her arrival has oreated, and the few days longer she will remain in port wlll| hardly suffice to allow all who wish to vi*it her. She is a strange looklug craft and must be seen to be appreciated, independent of the attraction the juuli presents, Castle Garden is a delightful place to pass away a few hours In these hot days.

Attempt at Mukdkb and Suicide.?Until within the last week, the Coroner's office has furnished but few items or interest for sometime past, earh week affording tome dozen cases of ship fever, deaths from intemperance, Sic., iio. The events of the last five or six days have, bowever, oalled to mind the old saying, that " it never rains but it pours," for while the Coroner is engaged investigating the ciroumstauoes connected with thu mvxterioils murder of a child, he is sent for to hold an InqueRt on the body of a religious fanatic j whose days were suspected to have been shortened by tbe physic administered by bii equally fanatic brethren. and ere the subject haH been permitted to remain a tbree days' wonder, tbe attention of the worth} offlcial alluded to. is culled to another case of equal iutereat, the particular* of which, from the evi denoe adduced, appears to be as follows :?A young Portuguese, said to be mate of a vessel nou lying In port, while in the city some time ago. beoame acquainted with a young lemale of prepossessing appearance, who in due oourse of their acquaintance, consented to beoome hi* bride, and that on tbeocoasion of his next voyage, he should lead her to the altar, " And hear her voice ascend. 'Mid changiog scenes, unchang'd to feel, To love till lift) should end ' Under such blissful anticipations, our Portuguese sailor left our shores for a trip to the old world, from which he reoently returned and sought out tbe object of his idolitary, at present boarding at a respective house in the vicinity of Franklin quare, where, on resuming hi? wonted visit*, finding his " lady love" in no haft.t for the performance of the nuptial ceremonies, the young Portuguese became distracted,and more urgently pressed his suit Ills ent rnaties had no peroeptible effect upon the heart of the maiden in question, while his Imagination oould readily discover tbe cause of the apparent ooldness on her part, in tbe shape of other candidates for her sqjiles and affeotions; and unable to withstand the then existing state of excitement, resolved to know the worst, and again " popped the question." which resulted iu our hero's rejection ; whereupon he drew out a * heath knife and made a plunge with it at the breast of her be bad long and dearly loved, inflicting a severe gash; then fled at nill speed through Franklin square and Dover street, where be passed over a vessel and jumped into the water. His body was subsequently recovered by means of grappling irons, and an inquest held, resulting in a verdict of death by drowniug.

A framan Driven to fleiptration.?Officer Smith, of the Jit ward, arrested on Wednesday afternoon a young woman by the nume of Julia Kelly, on a charge of assaulting a man by the name of Jonathan Bloom, a watch case m'ker io the employ of Mr Bond, in Ann street.? It appears from the statement made by Julia, which we believe is correct,* from other corroborative circumstances, that about four years ago she became acquainted with Bloom, at her resldenoe in Watts street, and soon after, from representations made by Bloom, agreed to live together, under promise of marriage, as man and wife. This passed on for near a year, when Julia became encirnte, and to eradicate this, by persuasion of Bloom she was induced to visit Madame Kestell's, in Oreeuwich street, and there prooured a box of pills, which she took according to direction; but instead of giving the desired relief, came very near destroying her own life. Consequently, upon the birth of the child, it only breathed a tew hours, and then expired. Sinoe this, Julia has been the mother of two more. Bloom, within the last few months, having become Indifferent towards her, finally left her destitute, and, it is said, is about to be married, which so preyed upon the mind of Julia, that she felt determined to And him out, if it were possible; and on Wednesday afternoon she accidentally met him iu Broadway, near Liberty street. She at once spoke to him,, and he, apparently in good faith, invited her to wallra short distance with him. which she did, and was conveyed down in the neighborhood of the first ward station house, where she was placed In the custody of the above officer. This so enraged poor J uliu, that while in the station house and about being placed^iu one of thu cells, iu a fit of despair, she suddenly seized from bei pocket a small viol containing oil of vitriol, which she threw At Bloom m she parsed, a portion ol the vitriol taking effect on bis face and clothing; she wasatoaoe locked up by Captain Wiley, and in the morning brought before Justice Osborne, where Bloom made his complaint against hit unfortunate victim and the magistrate hold her to ball to answer; In default ot which she was locked up In the Tombs for trial.

B's, 1867, >?; Farmers' Loan,L? ; Harlem, ; Morris Canal fell off >?. At the second board, Harlem experienced a further improvement of .'i, and Reading with sales to some xlent of the former. The stook market appears to be in a state of transition Everything tends towards an improvement, and the indications are such as to Induce us to believe that the appearanoe of a few large operators in the market weald create an advance of several per cent at once. Holders of all stocks are very firm, and until there is an advance. there*wlll be very little business transacted at either of the stock boards. Money will, without doubt, bo more abundant after the first of August, and the banks will haTe a period of nearly three months in which they can expand with impunity. Within that time we expect to see a very extensive speculative movement in stocks, and of course an advance of several per cent in prices. September and October are favorable months for outsiders, and they generally bite pretty well in that season, at the hooks baited for th?m by the brokers of Wall street. The out sidets have a very great influence upon the stock market, and whenever they are shy, and oannot be drawn into the street, prices generally are heavy. This olas* oi operators Is at present pretty well supplied with fanoy stocks, bought at prices below those now current, which they are holding for a greater advance, which many ar>* oonfldont of realizing. Kvery thing depends upon the money market. The prospect now Is very flattering, and we trust it will continue so.

There was, on the ftth of July, only $2<),000 outstanding out of an issue of 91,81d 600, showing the amount purchased up to that time to hare been 91,198,500 From the profitable mannef In wbich this institution is nonduoted, we should judge that the outstanding stock of the over issue would be redeemed in the coarse of another year. The suit between this hank and the Schuylkill Bank, Is still unsettled, notwithstanding the late deolsion in favor of the former. The whole question now is one of time; all the points at issue have been settled in favor of the Bank of Kentucky, but the SohuyIklll bank will, of course, put off a settlement to the last moment. The aggregate movement of the Bank of Kentucky shows a slight reduction sinoe the January report. Mlebigun is one of the most extensive wheat growing States in the western oountry; and as its surplus is usually exceedingly large, it is important that the condition of this year's crip, and its prubabie productive nets should be understood. .The annexed statement exhibits the probable productiveness of each county. It will be peroleved that there is a fair proipect for more than aa average yield Wheat Crop of Michigan, 1647. Excellent Cropt. AUcgan, Barry, Luton, Berrien, Branch. Calhoun, Cunt, Clinton, Knlamazoo, Ingham, Ionia. Ottawa, Kent, Lapeer, St Clair, Saginaw. Shiawassee, Wayne. St. Joseph, Van IJuren. In most of the above counties, there will be an increase of twenty per oent?in Kent three hundred per oent. In Lexlngten, St. Clair oouuty, a thousand per cent is calculated upon. Three Quarters of a Crop. Washtenaw, Monroe, Livingston, Jackson, Oenesoe. Hillsdale. The prospect in these counties Is far better than it was a month ??o. Some farmers are of the opinion, with the additioa of the new ploughed soil, they may not be over an eighth short Half a Crop. Lenawee, Oakland, Macomb. In those counties, ft appears, much of it was winter killed, and the fly has made much havoo. The additional extent of land put under cultivation for this crop i last flail, and the favorable appearance of the grain in such a large number of the counties, Induce us to believe that the aggregate yield will greatly exoeed that of last year Early in the season the whoat crop throughout the Western country looked far from flattering, but the fine weather in May and June changed the whole oomplexion of things, and the improvement since has been very rapid. We do not believe the injury to tho crop has t??eu more than what is experienced every flriAinn vhlln tho Inffraiian^ nnanfltv rtf land AVftd must. owell the aggregate yield above that of laat year. Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and all the wheat growing 8tates will withont doubt show a surplus that will astonish all the bull (peculators in breadstuff* in the oountry. Ax regards Indian corn, the harvest will be immense, exceeding the most extravagant calculations made by the most sanguine believers in great orops. We have for the past month had most favorable weather for oorn, and the plant is almost beyond the possibility of being ovi rtakeu by frost. The extent of this crop would lengthen that of wheat, as it usually enters more largely into consumption. when there is an abundance, and the producers will reserve their wheat more for market.

A Mend writing from the town of Wheatland, says that the harvest In that region will be nearly finished during the present week, aud, from appearance*, ho thinks the yield will be much batter than was anticipated a month ago. The wheat heads were well filled, the berry plump, and It is said that there extra row on the heads The weather has been quite favorable, and the straw being clear and bright, will serve to supply the place of the soanty grass crops as fodder.?Rockiiter Jidm. 'list tin/. There were a few fields of wheat harvested In this vicinity last week. We were out of town a few miles, (for the first time in several weeks,) and noticed several fields cut and put In the shook, jet the harvest may be said not to have commenced generally and in earnest, until yesterday On Inquiry, we lear ed that the insect had been at work anil has done considerable injury, yet the new orop will afford a much better yield than any one could have supposed two months ago. About three fourths the usual quantity (rom the number of acre* sowed will, it is supposed, be about a fair estimate, taking the whole county togntner.

Mr. Orrin A. Turner, of Hamburgh, in this county, has shown us some potato vines with the supposed C4U*e of the disease which has so extensively prevailed in this vegetable for a few years past. It is a worm about three quarters of an inuh in length, which make* It* way through the vine, and Is supposed to impregnate the root. On nearly all the vines was fouud a bug. and many of the leaves bore the marks of having been stung. If this is not the cause of the rut. it Is sufficient to destroy the potato, aud render Its cultivation abortive. We are told that nearly all the vlues were In this condition. Mr T. thinks, lYoin what observation he has been able to make, that this worm, and its atti ndants, have been the cause of the wide spread dtsexse auioug potato*. which has been an almost universal destroyer throughout the world.?Buffalo Com.
