H NEW YORK HERALD. aWI? ?W. "NEWS FOR EUROPE. Movements of the Ocean Steamers. The French steamer Philadelphia will leave thi> port this morning at eight o'clock, on her return trip, with a goodly number of passengers, and aa excellent freight list. She will take with b#r the best wishes ot all classes of our citizens for her success. The mails of the Philadelphia closed yesterday afternoon, and contain a large number of newspapers and letters. To give our subscribers on the continent ot Europe the latest news from this country, we republish in to-day's paper the French summary of American intelligence that we published yesterday in the Herald for Europe, together with such other news as arrived by last night's mails, including that received from Mexico. The Philadelphia will carry one day's later intelligence from N'ew i'ork and the South, than will go in the Hibernia from Boston. Steamer Washington. This vessel will not leave for Southampton and Bremen until the 24th of September. This | delay i? owing to a number of alterations, which the company deem in a measure necessary. Her day of sailing in future will be on the 24th of the month, instead of the 1st, as heretofore Ntwi from Europe?Two Stwm?h)p? nearly <lue. The French steam ship Missouri, from Cherbourg, has been ut sea nearly fifteen days, provided she sailed on her regular day, the 1st in&t.; and the English steam ship Cambria, from Liverpool, has been at sea neurly eleven days, having sailed on the 4ih inst. Tne former will be due on Monday, the 16th inst., and the latter on Tuesday, the 17th inst. It is the opinion of many that the news by the Cambria will be received here before that by the French packet. The Cambria we know is the best and fastest boat in the Cunard line, and the Missouri we know nothing about. Should the Cambria arrive first, our advices from Euroi e will be fifteen days later thaa those received by the previous arrival, and the accounts will cover a very important period, so far as the growing crops are concerned. Whatever the character of the news is relative to the harvests, it will give a complexion to our corn markets, which will be pretty permanent. lVt anticipate a slight decline in prices for breadstuff? t? the markets of Great Britain, and we look for accounts to that etfect by the steamers now nearly due. We also anticipate a very moderate improvement in quotations for cotton, aud a very decided improvement in the money market This is plain, and a few days will settle the point. It is impossible to tell what the weather in Eugland was from the 20th of July to the 4th of August; we have not calculated upon anything linn an d n,/ ,U..< ..... based our prediction upon the fact that the receipts of breadstuff's in the pr.ncipal ports of Great Britain, since the departure of the steamer of July 20th, have been immense, not only from the United States, but from the northern and southern sections of Europe. It would be well for flour dealers to a little while, to uwait the receipt of further news, to keep themselves quiet and perfectly cool, and when they get an Extra Herald, govern them elves accordingly. The Ifewi from Mexico; We yesterd iy received some news from Mexico in which we placed reliance, and accordingly issued it in an Extra Herald to the public. It was rather unsatisfactory, because our renders, no doubt, like o-irselves, expected that it would contain the details of ' another great battle in Mexico," and the triumphant entry of the Amen' can forces into the capital of the Aztecs and the Halls of the Montezumas. The reverse, however, was the faetj for at the last accounts, Gen. Scott, although determined upon marching upon the city of Mexico at an early day, was still at Puebla. The news, sttchas it is, is not without importance. It sets at rest the rumors that have agitated and perplexed the community for the last two weeks, in respect to Gen. Scott's having taken the capital with the loss of three hundred of his men, but which we never believed. As soon as these rumors were received here, we thought ' they had a suspicious flavor, and considered them unworthy of credit. Instead of publishing them in an Extra form, as we usnally do when we re ceive reliable intelligence from the seat of war, we merely posted the rumors on our bulletins to let the public know we had received it, but did not consider it true. It is also important, inasmuch as it states that a rumor was prevalent at Vera Cruz that there was an understanding between Gen. Scott and Santa Anna, that at the first onset of the former, the city of Mexico *ould surrender without makingany very serious resistance. Whether this be true or false, we cannot tell, but we give it for what it is worth. It appears by our telegraphic report that despatchss Irom General Scott to the government ware received at Vera Cruz on the 2d instantiate tenor of which were, oi course, unknown. It such is the fact, we will, doubtless, soon hear of his intended movemen s in an official announcement. It is gratifying to receive authentic information from the war quarter, although its character is not sueh as wc should like it to be. It relieves the community from the state of doubt and uncertainty in which it has been placed. The next news will, unquestionably, be the most important that we have received for some time, a* it is pretty well known that the intended operations of our government do not extend beyond the reduction of the capital. The news will be found under the telegraphic head in this day's paper. I Remarkably Qmc* Sailing.?The Canton jacket Sea Witch, an the whole worid known, has made a remarkably quick passage to China; but the rate at which she sailed yesterday, beat anything that ever she performed. She left our port in charge of Mr. John Hyer. of the New York pilot boat John E. Davison; and incredible as it may appear to persons not acquainted with her, she get to sea, a distance of nineteen miles, in the extremely short time of one hour and three minutes. Our readers can rely on the correctness of this statement. It can be verified by Mr. Aspinwall, of the firm of Howland It Aspinwall; Mr. Monson, of Staten Island, and Mr. Daniel Spinage, another pilot fof the John E. Davison, all of whom were on board of her during the time. We would like to have her go all the way to Canton at this rate of speed. Wist India Intklliofncr.?We have received I oy the Falcon a file of the Bermuda Royal Oa~ i xtlte from the 20th of July to August 3d, and the Bermudtan Irom J uly 17th to th< 31st of the same month, and onr copy of the Bermuda Htrald of August 5th; being Inter than any received from that part of the world. We extract from these papers all the news of interest to our readers, that they contain.

A rumor prevails la Demerara, that Governor Held la to supersede Goyernor Light The Gazette make* the following signiticant remarks on the transportation of Coolies by the English to the West Indies : The bark Giaour, lately arrived from Cork. 1* reported to have upoken on the 30th ult, off Altavilia, the hip Duke of Argyle, from the Eaat Indies bound to Havana, with Coolie* for that place ; and a wander haa been expressed how a British Teasel can be employed in suob a cause. Oar surprise might also have been exelted. did we not happen to know that party queatlona are now carried out for the purpoee of promoting the basest and most unprincipled speculations Indeed we should noc?be astonished If the parties engaged In this new slave tirade are members of the free trade league, now speculating on the profit of the Cuban cultivation o! produoe, to the ruin of the British West India Colonies. The owners of the ehlp, for aught we know, may be members of the British and Foreign Antl-alavery Association .' We tbink this matter reaalrta more than a passing notice. No one having the Uaat knowledge ot the manner in which things are managed In Cuba, can have a doubt that however speolous may have been the pretenoes under whloh these poor wretches have been decoyed from.their native hills to Cuba, that onoe there, nothing will save them from sharing the miserable fate of the Cuban slaves. TkestrieaUk Pass Theatsc ?There was a good house at the Park last evening, where the opera of "La Sonnambula" was produced with grand.effect. It iiui on the occasion of it* presentation, on Wednesday night, received with the gr< ateat enthusiasm, and Madame Bishop waa called out, as usual, at the end of the second act, and at the oloee of the performanoe, to listen to the shouts of applause, and to receive the bouquets of flowers, which were bestowed by her highly gratified listeners. The elosing piece was encored, and its repetition again called for. In the second act Mr. Fraaer's performance of "Still so Gently,'' was enoored. The chorusses were all good, and the opera went off handsomely. Signorina Tedeeoo, and severe! others of the Havana Italian troupe were present, and appeared highly pleased wllh.Mad&me Bishop's performances. Tedeeoo applauded some of the passages with a warmth that evinced how much she was gratified In listening to the sounds which she herself but lately discoursed at this same place. -Tills opera seems to be received with even a better grace than " Linda." On IVioiiday night " La SonnambuU " is to be performed agaiu, for the benefit of Mr. Fraaer,who baa shown much Kood taste in selecting this opera on this occasion. Aa this will be the last opera night but one, we have no doubt tbat there will be a good attendance. Surely, no one wno is iond of mu*io and who can spare an evening, will have it to say after Madame B. has left, that he did not hear her sing. 3Bowehy Theatre.?That old favorite of the patrons of the Bowery Theatre, and universally acknowledged excellent actress, Mrs. Shaw, will oommenoe an engagement at this theatre to-morrow evening. During the short time she will be with us, she will appear in all the cbaraoters In the personation of which she is so Justly oelebrated. She will commence with tbat of Margaret Elmore, in " Love's Sacrifice," and who that has witnessed her in it. will not be gratified to hear' that he will to-morrow have the opportunity of seeing her in it again. We predict for Mr*. Shaw areoeption more enthusiastic it possible, than she over met with ; and also, full houses during her engagement. In addition to '' Lore's Sacrifice, the nautical drama, " Inohcape Bell,'* which has been revived with so mueh favor,will be performed to-morrow evening. Chatham theatac.?When we referred to this favorite establishment yesterday, we were not aware that the talented Adelphl company, consisting of Mr. and Mrs Brougham, Mr. Whiting and Mr. Patker, were re-engaged for one week more at this theatre. This will, no doubt, be hailed with gratification by all who have had the pleasure of witnessing the performances of this company for a week or two past. No more popular movement could he made by Mr. Fletcher; and his making it, Eroves that he knows th? imposition of the people wnom e is catering tor. 1 liny will perform, the first night of their engagement, (to-morrow evening) the fiaroeofa " Man About Town,'' the ' Wnite Horse of the Peppers," and th? laughable pieco " Horn to Mood Luck." This is a bill eminently well adapted to our people, and eminently well calculated to draw as full houses as the Chatham ever contained. The Rateus.?It must not bo forgotten that these favorite pantomtmists open Pslmo's opera house tomorrow evening. Their fame Is too well established to require aught except the bare aunounoement of their appearance to ensure them success. The Lkhmar Family.?The celebrated ballet company known as the Lehman family, numbering several of the beet dancers and performers oa the tight rope that ever performed In this city, commence an engagement to-morrow evening at Castle Uarden, where they will, no doubt, draw as large houses as they did in New Orleans. Their performances are peculiarly well suited to the summer season, and Castie Garden is decidedly the best place in the city for them to meet that success to which their merit entitle* them.

Depuia long tempa noua n'avona re$u aucune nouvelle exacte de 1'armee d'occupation, nul rapport officiel d'un mouvement opere par lea troupea du general Scott, plua loin que Puebla. Voici pluaieura joura que l'on raconte en public la priae de Mexico par ce mime general, maia comme noua ne savons paa de quelle aource proviennent cea nouvellea, noua ne pouvona encore y ajouter foi. Le dllai de l'armla am?ricaine k Puebla a et4 occaaionne, aana aucun doute, principilement par la disposition que montraient lea Mexicaina h entrer en nfegociation pour conclure la paix; et avant qu'on n'ait decide ai la guerre continuera ou non, ai Ton en vieadra 4 ae donner la main eu it continuer lea hoatilitls, aucun mouvement progreaaifne aera op?re par lea genlraux de not re armee. Noua ne croyona pas non plus au bruit qui court au aujet de la nomination d'ambaaaadeura du coii dea Mexicaina; la aeule chose qui puiaae donner qualque fondement k cette croyance, c'est le fait certain que l'armee amlricaine n'avait pas, auxdernidrea datea parvenuea & New York, fait le moindre mouvement du cot? de Mexico. Notre gouvernement a lea meilleures dispositions du monde pour entrer en composition avec le Mexique; chaque vicloire remportee par nos troupes a 4t6 auivie d'offrea de paix k dea conditions inalM ft hnnnrnhles. et 1'on s'eat tOUIOUTS tenu pret k arreter lea hoatilitea au moindre signe de bonne volont?. Un charge d'affaires accoicpagne noa troupea, ayant en main le pouvoir, non aeulement d'ebaucher, mais encore de conclure enticement un traits de paix. Malgr? cos dispositions pacifiquea, noua sommes dans la perauasionde noua ne reuasirona point, et que toua noa efTorta pour conquerir ou nlgooier la paix avec noa enneraia, avorteront dans toute cirronatance; en un mot, que noua aerona forces de noua emparer de tout le paya et de le garder, qu'il noua faudra ditruire aa nationality, itablir aur son sol noa inatitutiona politiquea, revolutionner lea maaura, lea coutumea, la maniire de voir et leaprljugls dea Mexicaiua, et lea abriter aous la vaate bannidre du republicaniame legitime.

Ce gouvernement devra etre aide par des impots leves sur les biens de l'Eglisc et les autres proprietls du Mexique, jusqu'a la proportion nlcesmire : La guerre doit inevitablement se terminer ainai. Nous ne croyons pan un trait? de paix possible, bien plus, nous ne comprenons pas quel serait l'avantage pour nous de le conclure, et nous mettons en doute la dur?e de ce traite, en supposant qu'ij soit jamais signe. La voix du peuple am?ricain parle hautement en faveur de la prise de possession et ce vouloir est sans appel, car avec des institutions semblables a celles qui nous regissent, la voix populaire est si puissante, que, quel que soit le parti qui tienne les renes du gouvernement, il doit obeir & la volonte de la nation. C^uand le peuple a parle, les gouvernans doivent agir selon sea vasux. Le President, ou le parti qui clderait, par un traite quelconque, un pouce du terrain de la Californie, ou la millionieme partie d'un millimetre de ce cote du Rio Grande, ceux qui abandonneraient, quelque part que ce fut dans le pays, des lieux conquis par nos troupes, sans avoir obtenu en ^change la garantie d'une paix permanente, seraient, politiquement parlant, perdus et precipites dans l'abyme le plus profond du "mepris, et des lors, il leur Meruit imnnnsihle ile hp r?*h?hilit#?r inmnia mi* yeux du peuple. La poaition des deux grand* partis politique* de l'Ktat parait etre sur le ptoint de changer: les dernieres Elections ont donne gain de cause aux Whigs, et deja pluaieura de leurajnembrea aont arrives par Ik au Congres. II est done plus que probable que la seconde chambre de noa reprlsentans aupr&s du gouvernement de Washington, appartiendra au parti Whig pendant la prochaine session. Tous lea rapporta qui nous sont parvenus jusqu'k present, confirment notre opinion a ce sujet; toatefois il eat possible encore que les rappoits ofticiels changent un pen la face de la question. Si notre jugement anticipl devient fond? par le fait 6tabli, la prochaine session du Congres ne produira aucun rlsultat, noua pourrions dire que cela n'en ira que mieux pour le pays, puiaqu' en agissant peu, le Congres ne pourra operer, danslc systeme financier ou commercial, aucun de cos changemens qui ont amene d?\a tant de facheux resultats pour toutea les classes et pour tous les intlreta. Le Slnat aura ainsi une sorte de caract?re conservatif, qui neutralises les mouvemens de la seconde chambre et du pouvoir exlcutif et lea tiendra tous deux en quelque aarte brides. Noua pouvons done nous croire tout & fait en auretl, persuades que noua aommee que tout ce qui sera fait sera pour Ic bien du pays, sans avoir Igard k aucune consideration de parti, ni ii aucune influence de vote ou d'intrigue r^ciproque entre lea membrea du Congres.

Jtn Attempt to Break Prt$tn.?An injenloua felon by the name of Christian Bechstien, a (iorman bj birth, wis tried on Friday morning last in the Court of Sen ions on a cnarge 01 grand larceny, convicted ana Hen- i ( need to live years imprisonment in the state prison at Sing Sing, and remanded back to his cell prior to being sent up by the Sheriff. In the oourse of the afternoon, Mr. Stanton, the Deputy Sheriff, entered the prison, and opened the oell door oooupied by the prisoner, and seeing the form of a man lying on the bunk covered over with a blanket, the Deputy 8herlff addressed It as follows Say, young man, get ready early in the morning to go up the river:" but receiving no answer, and supposing he was asleep, olesed the door, whioh was looked by the keeper, and all supposed to be right, until about 3 o'clock in the morning the night watcn of the prison was alarmedjby the barking of one of their dogs, and casting his eyes up towards the end window on the south side observed the shadow of something pass or drop by one of the windows on the outside?an alarm was at once given, and " old Jack," a savage bull dog, was turned loose aniLa general hunt oommenoed with the two night watchmen,headed by '-old Jack." On passing around the outside of the prlsen yard, they observed a rope hanging from the third story window. This convinced them that a prisoner had made his escapes consequently the yard was searched minutely, but imhout success, until they came to the straw, house, whioh Is a large room or cell built in the prison wall, used for keeping straw. It was under this straw that the escaped prisoner, Bech-tien. was deteoted It appears the felon, in order to deceive the keepers, ingeniously built up the exact form of a man in straw which he took from his bed, Slaoed hi* shirt on the man of straw and placed it on a* bunk in an easy Bleeping potition, with a small piece of blanket laid over the head, which ii naturally done to keep off the fliea and mosauitoes while sleeping. This wan all arranged by the prisoner just before the time of locking up the prisoners for the night. The nest thing he did was to secrete himself in an end cell next to the window, which is always unlocked, used for keeping straw, pails, brooms, ke. in; here he fitted a small piece of wood In the fall of the latch so that he eould close the door and vet the latch would not fall. In this cell he prepared his rope for desoension, by tearing uphlsstraw mattress (bag) into strip*,twisting it up and binding the ends with straw twisted together, and about 3 o'clock in the morning he made his entry into the prison yard by ripping off a part of the beading of the window, which allowed a space of about sis Inches between tbe iron bar and the frame work, whioh space he crept through, without shirt or clothing, made his rope fast to the Iron bar, and in this way ne lowered himself down, but in passing by the window he swung against the glass, which alarmed the dog and the keepers, causing his immediate arrest. The deputy sheriff conveyed him In irons, at 7 o'clook the same morning, to the 8tate prlron. And thus ended this Ingenious attempt to escape. The prisoner Is a young man, about UO years of age, and said to be an an old oonvlct from Germany.
