We published an article in yesterday's paper, in which we gave it as ouropinion that the prosp-ct of n termination ot the war was very good. Lite in the night, however, we received a telegraphic desp itch to the effect that the Mexican .*1.. r.

By yesterday's Southern mail we received New Orleans papers of the 10th inst., which cont iini'd one day's Inter int"Iligencefrom the city of Mexico than what we4iad previously received. Tlio Delta contains a translation of an article on the que&tion of peace in the Republifiano, of the 23th of Juno last. The following is the translation:? XKW PROPOSALS POK PEACE. Th? government of the ITnlted States baa lately sent a not* to onr Minister of Relations. proposing again to ?tnUr lato negotiation* for peaoe. and offTin* to send a Commissioner. with full pow-rs for the definite arr*ng?raent of the difllcul'le* now existing bstwien the two !t-nub!i'-s Tbis afftir. for I s gr?at importance ami lnt?r?st. ds-terveg puhlie attention above all things. an>t it iinnoees upon u? the duty of exp ising ulnoerely anil freely. th? turn which. In our opinion should be given to this nahjeot. in order to prevent its being ma le prejudicial to the nation. It will b? ?as ly pero-ivrd that the government might have at onoe repeated the anewer given to the previoue notification of the Amerioan oabin?t. In whioh onr go ernment (Mexinan) simply proteBted that It would not enter into arrangements of any description as long as the enemy's squadron blockaded our ports, and Its tronpe occupied our territories. But. whether from a conviction. produced by the reasonings and examples given by .Mr Buch?na>i. or from a witih to avoid the efTuxion of blood or from the belief that the new propositions will b? ad<iiis?ibl?. the eovernment has judged it u>oiit prop'f to a Idr^M lts?lf to Congreis. In order that thi* body i may d t?rmine up'<n (he atmwer which um<t be given to | the late proportions for peace. Wo belters that the power of treating with the Commlss loners. Id case it should ha deoine<l advisable to do ho. belongs la an extraordinary way. to government instead of to Congress Our opinion is f >unded in the natural and plain con truetion of the deerm which given the government extraordinary piwi'ri ThU ampin authorisation wan (riven. an<1 ha* been preserved. Iwcause Congress, as well a< ourselves. Is persuaded that the Executive in derided ly In favor of carrying on thn war.and wouli not dare to art tr-asnnably, iu which case the Republic would be j lost without remedy. In oonse<]i>enpe. and supposing likewise that among the few restriction* named at the time of vesting the Executive with extraordinary facul ties wrr? thw: that it oould not make peacn with the United States?oonclude treaties or negotiations with f'reign powers?nor dispose of the whole or any part of the ti-rrib.ry of this republic, we understand plainly, that there is no impellment to the Executive opening diplomatic communication* with Mr Trist. or with any one else who may be sent from the United States as a commissioner on such an Important suoj. ct. It will not be improper to remark here, that tbo pow or* of the Executive go no farther than to hear and make propositions, and by no means to resolve detlul- 1 tively upon the new proposals for pe oe. It Is couse luently clear enough tbat the Executive either thinkithat these proposals are of an admissible character, or it judges, even before knowing what they are. that they mu-t be unworthy of the character aud dignity of the Mexican republic The lstter conclusion is very probably the opinion of the Executive, and It Is likewise our own private opinion In such esse these proposals should fie Immediately rejected and there is no doubt than that It is entirely useless for Congress to assemble to take into consideration mch ignominious and inadmissible propositions. Neither i-hould we attend to the argument that b* this refusal on; cover ument miicht re jeot a peace which would be :vdvunla?eou.i to the uation ? for we must suppose that they (the United State*) weuld not make uuv such propoaals. huJ in t a?tt tbcy should, It will never be t"0 late to admit tiiem, lienauae In every eiw the Executive W"Ul J be obliged to give notice of what occurred and ll it had acted Improperly, itn error* cruld be easily rmnedi-d If, on the contrary. the government should consider the propositions favorable to us, and that it was codt*nient to make a peaoe. it, rhouid always do it by recurring to the legislative body as the power to ratify a treaty Is only ve?ted In it. Should the Executive be prevented frmn raasinit a p?a>-e with the United States no matter how desirous it might be, or how adrantageou* those propoeitl<<ns si)'>ul<i appear to be, the Executive would tind itself without power to act. and would be obliged to oill on the representatives of the people, in order that they ml^tH revolve what should be done in that case. And this gives au additional support to our ideas: for, if the government should be prerented fioiu making a peace?which would be the only evil we could fear?what objection is there to Hi taking charge of the preliminaries of negotiation? We believe thrre is none; and (hat ne reasonable objection can tie found, how much soever yon may search, against this truth. Biaides the legal reaeous for li< lding that it la the government, and not Congress which must receive the newly appointed commissioner, there if still another reason, arising flrom the reel and effective impossibility that the legislative body eould for the present assemble The number being dally diminished by the absence of aeveral members, who have given the soandalous examSle of abandoning the posts with whieh they have been onorwd, a very long time must elapse before the uecessary number could on united for the purpose of forming I a quorum Thus, it is evident, thai to pretend that Congress should resolve about the new proposition is as much lis oaralvllna it indefinitely, or l>neak it down nt the very coojmeno?-tnent. We are, however, far from Intending by our foregoing remark! 10 ind'rate any disposition uu our part to make a pea<~e Decided partisans of the war from a conviction of its necessity, persuaded that only through its nontinuation oan the repubiio be saved, we oould not recommend a contrary course. We do not even deem it necaasary to receive the commissioner s>nt by the United *t*ten, and If he should b admitted, in order that it flight never be said that we shut our ears to every amioabie arrangement, we believe it to bo indispensable that hostilities should not be suspended, even for a moment; but tbat. on the contrary, every occasion should be rendered profitable, and that we must take advantage of the perilous position in which the enemy finds himself from his own fault, and make him pay dear for the ephemeral triumphs with which fortune has favored him thus fWr. We also wish that both the Executive and Congress shoal 1 not be easy in granting a peace; and that la ease tbat that should b? the result, w? hope they will not permit that the honor, the good name of the ooun| fry, aud Its Interests sbeuld be forgotten. Tue tone of tins article is vastly different from that which formerly characterized the RtI publicanu, when sp-uking of the question of l?eHce, or alluding at all to the United States. Formerly it was death before dishonor?war to i 'he knife, and audi like phrases; but now we have before us a qaiel, sedate article. When we connect this article with the facta that we published yes erday, we are confirmed ] u the opinio* we ill 'it ' xpressed, and think that peace in n-arer at Hand Man p*'ople generally cupiose. L\ter irom Yucatai*.?By the politeness of Cupt. Wnite, of the "M iry Ann," we are in receipt of Merid-i papers up to the 3rd instant. There is no new* of any consequence from that quarter, and they seem to be awaiting further news from the seat of war with us much anxiety us we do here. The election of representatives was to take place on the 1th instant, and the papers in speak- I ing of it, express a hope that all will go ofTquiet- I ljr and well; indeed, they do not doubt it. At the time of Captain Waite's departure he til form !< us thet they hud heard nothing at Meri. ds, uf whatimr flfftt had MOvmpliBhad at 'IV ( *? *? TIm lUTM?r.TlM Bmivki mt Ik* flwrw mwit, umI ih* Optrallon of Dm HcwTiitft Tne ad valorem tariff of ldi6 works admirably. The r?*vt?nu'* from cu^omi for the pa*' srven month*, exceeds that of th* corresponding period, under the tariff of 1842. in the previous | year, nearly one and a half millions of dollars. This increase has been realised in the face ot a Urge importation of specie, and of course a diminished importation of merchandise, to what there would have been had there been no shipments of sp*cie from the other side. I nder other circumstances, the twenty-five millions of dollars received in cpecie, within the past six months, w?#uld have been received in merchandise, and th?* revenue from customs, in that event, would have been several millions larger. The increase upon the receipts of Inst year > would have been from three to five millions of I dollars, instead of one and a half, for the seven months. The importations of merchandise since the n*w tariff went into operation, h;tve been less than estimated, while the exportatinns have been much larger. Had our exportutions been paid for in foreign merchandise, we should have had a more favorable report to make relative to the revenue, than that given above. The prospect now i*, that our fall tride will be unusually lartte; and our fall importhtion will, wifVwkitf m.lit u I e/i Km irw ru 1 w n rn t?vt*/?r_ " uuu.,n n.nu v * 7 tation of Bp?cif from the other side h is nearly ceased, and the probability is that the value of our imports of merchandise will correspond more with the value of merchandise exported, than they have for some time p*st. In the event of the harvests in Europe being as ur e as anticipated, and those of this country Iteinglarger than >ast year's, ihere willbe anucb greater surplus than we Dave ever had yet, and prices will touch a low point. The surplus in tkis country will, without doubt, be immense, and we have no doubt large shipments of breadstuff's will be made to Europe on speculation, on home account. Should this I e carried to any extent, of which there is every probability, it wiii give a great impetus to our import trade, and tend to swell the revenue fr< m customs. All this will aid and comfort the Secretary of the Treustiry, and add to our resource* for prosecuting the Mexican war, if it should not before thai be closed. The receipts into the treasury from the tarifl of duties placed upon imports into -'lexico, is a source of income not calculated upon wh'n the present tariff of the United States was planaed a d perfected, and the revenue from that quarter will nnKe up part of the deficiency caused by the lari e importation of specie. There is one thing pretty conclusively settled in rehtion to the tariff of 1840, and that is its successful operation, which places it beyond any material alteration or modification. Whatever mav be the political complexion of the lower houae of Congress, this department of our commercial system is beyond their control. This is a very imj ortn. t nutter, as permanency is more to lie desired in this than in anything else connected with commercial affairs, which the government have the regulation of. Arrivals?Ex-President Tyler, lady nnd child, arrived in this city on Wednesday last, and are stopping at Mrs. Gardiner's, Ltlayette Place. United States ship Macedonian, which left here for Cork, with breadstuff*, for the relief of j the poor of Ireland, was spoken on the 3d inst. seventeen d lys out. The Steamship Washington.?If the American steamship Washington sailed at her appointed time, she is now fourteen d*y? at sea to-day, nid must be very near land. It is a matter ot doubt, however, whether she did sail at the np[ pointed time, as Captain Hewitt was determined, we learn, not to leave Southampton until his vessel was in perfect order, witli the view, no doubt, of testing her and ascertaining what passages she is capable of making. We understand thai the confidence of her builders, as well as of the gentlemen who made her engine and machinery was not in the slightest degree diminished on account of her not making better time than she 'did on her outward passage. They feel convinced that she is the fisiest steamship afloat, end will reach this port in a shorter time than uny of the Cunard steamships have ever done. II she do not arrive to-day,we shall decide that she did not leave on the day advertised for her departure. Her news will be six days later than that brought bv the Britannia at Boston, and it will be of the highest interest to this countiy; inasmuch, as on its purport will depend the quotations of every description of produce in this country for months to come. Alter the Washington, the next arrival will be the French steamship Philadelphia, with much later intelligence. When the Washington does arrive,we shall tike all necessary p tins to obtain the foreign inaket quotations and publish them m advance of the speculators. Theatrical. Bowery Thcatre.?"Gilderoy, or, the Reefer's Rannin;" "01* Bull,'1 and "The Children in the Wood," will be repeated to night at tho Bowery.

Now, It is said, to get 10 words fiom Wheeling to New York costs 9o cents I This we conceive to be too high. We should like to see ail the companies agree upon uniform rates ot charging; 1 mid the best method for this purpose would be to charge . two. three, four wr Ave cents for each word in a comrnuuication, and leave it to the writer to send as many or as | few aa lie pleased. The telegraph Is all powerful and | competent to the immediate despatch of brief coininuni, oauont; but to tnable it to aot with eleotrioal celerity, it is necessary to give it matter it can grasp Condensation beoomes absolutely necessary For instance, oould the President's message be condensed for trannmlssioii to one-fourth. *r one tenth its bulk, every one must fee that the Ulegraph itself, as well as the public, would be benefitted So of commercial news. When the contemplated telegraph liue-i are completed to the eight or ten principal commercial cities, to get ten daily market reports, without condensation, would prow both too voluminous and too expensive A geutieuian of this oity has Invented a syetem of short hand w Itlng for o mtuerclal reporting, which work* success fully.

Their extreme condensation, enable# an operator to Rend one ihrough in from three to tive miautes They are composed in plain, *iuiple ?nglinli wordn, which secure* correctness by the fact, that if the telegraph sends a word not tnglirh. it Is known to be incorrect. The system ot abbreviation Is so formed, that if a word happens to get wrong. Its meaning can generally be understood by the words preceding and following it. Am some words uro more frequently used than others, they soon become familiar to operators, and henoe lessens the dauger ot mistake, commercial reporting. Is likely also to be a more regular business to tbe telegraphs, than miscellaneous news A merchant stated that reading tbe despatches referred to from Buffalo, had caused him in some instances to send messages of enquiry or conditional orders, over tbe line, that he would uot otherwise have dono. so that these brief despatches actually created busiuess for the telegraph. To invent an abbreviated system for commercial reporting oost the gentleman alluded to much mental labor and expense, and we therefore regret to learn that the questloA has been agitated with some of the oompani s, of abolishing the use of all systems of abbreviation on their lines. We are sinoere friends of Lhe telegraphy and wish them all possible success; and one of the best modes of securiug this end, will be the exeroise of as much liberality n? is consistent with their interest. We are gratified to hear that a gentleman in Thiladelphla has succeeded in contriving a plan for relieving the telegraph from interruption by atmospheric electricity We" hope it will answer; yet we are led to brlieve the surest means of protection can best be secured, bjr coating tbe wires with nou con uuvvmg umiviiuB iur tueir entire ifu^iu. l urn wuuiu in the outset coat mora money, but yet it might be the cheapest in the end. Ait the companies acquire means, it is probable they may build such lines. Considering the novelty of the enterprise, the limited amouut of capital owned by those engagi d in building the lines, tor the heavier capitalist in this, as in most other new and important enterprises, stood uluof--ttioy, with the inventor and patenters, deserve the highest credit We consider the whole thing as yet in its infancy, aud that it is calculated to still further astonish the world As to their preventing thunder storms or aocidents from lightning, as is said to be claimed for them by Professor Uinntead. it is more than we oan yet believe. The wire posts, trees, ?.? ,are frequently struck along the lines of lh? telegraphs.

Arrival ok Emkirant Passknukrh.?The number of emigrant passengers arrived at this port during the last four days, ending on Thursday last, from foreign ports, amounted to 1167. The greater part of whloh were from Liverpool. The Weather.?Th? thermometer stood at Delatour's, In Wall street, yesterday, at 84 degrees at 3 o'clock. Up to th.it time It ranged as follows 6 o'clock, A. 01. 12 Af. 8 f. M. 69 deg. 83 deg. 84 deg. At the same hours and dates in July, 1616, it stood at 69, 79 anl 79 degrees thus showing an inorease of several degrees. The present month has averaged a degree of heat far surpassing that of last season in July. The evening was oool and agreeable. Intklliuencic Okkicei ?The abases that exist in many of these offloes, and impositions that are practised through them on j oor, unsuspecting and duped applicants for employment, have been frequently made the subject of just animadversion. We heard a story yesterday of a poor Scotch girl, who has been filched out of no less a sum than $7 during the last two months, by an office in Wall street, from which she bad been sent on a '* f< ol's errand," in search of a situation which bad , been secured for her in Madison, William, Franklin streets, East Broadway, and in other parts of the city; but from cacti or wuicn nouses tne rarnuy nappened to be abut-nt in the oountry or elsewhere. The many heart leu imposition* practised upon thoAe who frequeut several or these offices, if noticed in detail would shook an indignant public. Indeed we hear of instances in which some of our boarding house keepers?of course we allude to a certain class - art in regular league with the proprietors of some of then* offices?who supply them with servants moutbly. or as they require them, accor ding to circumstances, and who discharge them ia a month or few weeks, not paying theui a cent for their labor. We know of a case in a certain Broadway house where a poor servant, thus procured, was discharged after three mouths servitude, without a oent for her labor. aud who. on demanding her pay, was threatened with a prosecution for petty larceny, iu stealing a pair of old broken dockings, which, by some extraordinary chance happened to "walk into" the poor girl's trunk, which was always open. There is a systematic combination in existence amongst some of these offlcus and boaruing houses, to defraud the poor, iudustrious servhuU oat of employ, that Rhould be vigilantly guarded against and punished if detected The law should authorise the police to inspects the books at tile different offlcis and trace up the operations. Such a law would soou unfold and expose the tricks aud impositious of the importers in the business, wb He it would uphold and give character aud weight to such ef the offices as do business upon legitimate aud fair terms. Many a sad tale?au awful story, could trace its origin to the heartlessness of root of the proprietors of theau intelligence offices.

Another Mystery ?On Saturday morning lust, about five o'clock, quite a handsome and gunteel lady got out of a back at the corner of Fourth and Market streeu, and went Into the '' Mammoth Clothing Depot" of Mr Weolf Samuels. She said shf had just arilvnd trom New Orleans, on the steamer Chancellor, and wished to purohase a suit of clothes for her husband. Trie articles were shown her, and sht soon selected a cent, vest, pantaloons, cravat aud b?t Shoes were asked for, but as none were in the store rb>> requested the clerk to purchase a pair for her, which was done. She paid the bill, without asking the price of a single article, and tben got into the hack and drove off She directed the hackman to drive first up this street and then up tbat, and finally ordered him to stop nexr a new balldlug In the process of erection on Broadway The driver susploioned omelhing, and gave Information to one of the police, who proof eded to the place without delay, aud there, eonoi-a'ed undt* some rub >lsh in the unfinished h^me, found the dre<s and the und'r loihes ot the lady, and a quantity of her hair, which she had out off which was six or eight Inches in length On some of the olothes a-ipearod the name of "Clarissa Morgan."
