The Wnkljr Herald. Our next edition of the PTukly Herald will he ready to-morrow morning. It will contain the whole of the English and European news by the steamship Cambria at Boston ; a full account of the dreadful collision at aea, by which one hundred and seventy-two lives were lost; a description of the fancy dreaa bail at Saratoga; the latest news from all part* of the United States; reports of the foreign and domestic market*, and a general summary of ; miscellaneous intelligence, continued from last ' Saturday. It will be illustrated with an engraving of the | town of Puebla, the laRt general encampment of ! the American army in Mexico. Single copies cents each. The Foreign Malls. Much to the surprise and satisfaction of every person, the mails of the Cambria, were brought to this city last evening. We do not know to whom the community are indebted (or this piece of enterprise and good luck?certainly not to Cave Johason, for he could not agree upon terms with the railroad company. We apprehend that we are indebted to either the Boston Postmaster or to the Wor cegier, ^prtngheld, liarttord, and Wew Haven Railroad Company, or perhaps both. It was a clever thing, and we suppose the letters and papers will be distributed at an early hour this morning. General Taylor and the Presidency..Another Letter from the Old Hero. Gen. Tay.or hiving been interrogated as to his political principles and his views on the tariff, national bxnk, and other questions, has in reply written a letter peculiarly characteristic. We publish it in this day's paper, and commend it to the perusal of our readers. The old general in a quiet easy manner disposes of the interrogatories addressed to him. He says, in effect, that he knows nothing of politics?is not a politician, and has no views on | tne tar iff and bank questions, for he never esa-; mined the subjects. In conclusion he says that ill the pledges he will give are, that, if he be elected to the Presidency, he will honestly aud faithfully perform the duties of the office to the ba*st of his ability, and strictly in compliance with the constitution. This letter is a bone for both whigs and locofocos to pick. The leaders of the two parties can du anything almost in politics. They can easily make black appear white, but we defy any of them, with all their legerdemain. to make out to the satisfaction of the people, that Gen. Taylor belongs to either party. TIm News from Karops?Oreot Decline In BmditaffH By ths arrival of the eteamship Cambria at Boston trom Liverpool, we have fifteen days later intelligence from all parts of Europe. The news is rxoeedingly important, in a commercial and financial point of view, and is ot the most unfavorable nature so far as all our great exporting staples are concerned. There has been au enormous decline in breadatuffs, without any m iterial improvement in cotton. Our readers will recollect, that in an article nblished a few days since, we predicted a details in breadstuffs, but by no means to the ex nt reported We anticipated a moderate decline, upon the ground that the receipt of breadstuffs in Great Britain from this country, up to 'he first of August, judging from the shipments from this and other ports during the month of June, must have been immense. The shipments of flour to Great Britain in the month of June, from this j ort alone, amounted to about four hundred thousand barrels, besides immense luantities of wheat and corn. Anticipating thai 'hese shipments would reach their destination in all July, we made up our minds that the "trainer of the 4th of August would bring accounts of a decline in prices. Our predictions ii.tvejbeen more than realized;Jbut it is our impression now that the steamer of the 19th inst., the Caledouia, will bring accounts of a partial recovery of prices. There is no doubt but that there was a very serious panic in the Liverpool market, as the decline was very sudden, having taken place on the 3d and 4th of August. The telegraphic despatch giving the report of the Liverpool market of the 4th inst., published in an Extra Herald on Wednesday evening, and ?lie despatch giving the report of the London I market of the 3d inst., published in an Extra | Herald yesterday morning, are very wide in the I statement* relative to prices, but are, nevertheless, correct. The bulk of the decline took place on the 3J and 4th iu Liverpool, and in London on the 4th. This accounts for the discrepancies. The first report made public through the Extra Herald on Wednesday evening, is the only correct one, as will be seen on reference to the detailed accounts of the mnrkets in this day*s pa- ' per- It is unfortunate that such contradictory -tatenients should be given, hut it is fortunate that the most unfavorable accounts came first, as it prepared the minds of those interested for the real state of things on the other side. We give in another column the circular of the Barings, dated London, August 3, for the purpose of showing that the telegraphic despatch made up from it corresponds with the original, being another evidence of the accuracy of the operator on the telegraphic line. Having ilius disposed of this part of the mat'er, it is necessary to sum up the extent of the decline in breadstuff*. We annex a comparative statement of prices current in Liverpool, at the departure of the last and previous steamers i? The Pairsn or BacADcrrrrt is LiTcsrooL. July 1:1. .'lufuil 3. Ptr Hih-mia.

The arrival of the j next steamer Irom Liverpool will be looked for with the greatest unxiety. The effect of this news upon our own markets must he great, but not to the extent that would he experienced had prices on this side ruled high. The decline yesterday in this market in flour was about fifty cents per barrel. The Liverpool cotton market on the 3d in?t, was firm. There had been a slight decline, hut it had boon recovered, and the reports by the Cambria abe about the sune as those received by the Hibenkja. The acoounts from this aid*received in Liverpool on the 2Sth of July, by the Caledonia, h^d a favorable effect on the market. We have no advicos of the effect of the fall in prices for breadstuff* upon those of rot ton, out n in uur iniiimooivu m>?? >. ngj .vtj ?reat and v-ry favorable. We shall have all this >y the steamer of the 19th inst. The London money market, on the 3d instant, w?? decidedly titfht, but quotations for stock v.-re pretty wt Jl maintained.

The British outrage nt the West. New Vohs, Thursday, Aug 10. Sin :?I take the liberty of addressing you, to order to contradict a paragraph In your paper of ibis day, copied Irotn the St Louu Republican It states that two men, deserters from the detachment at Red River, were arrested by an English officer and a party of soldiers for within the American territory, and against the wishes of a gentlemen in charge of an American fur trading poet, under whoso protection they had placed them, selves Now the real state of the case is this. Two privatsg of H. M.'s Sib Foot. deserted io tb? month of >iay last, taking with them some property brl.uglng to English settlers. After throe days they arrived at Pembina in a starving oouditiou, and applied to Mr. Kitaou. the person in charge of the American trading post to giro then assistance to get to 8t Peters, which lluiy believed to be Utiite close, though it 1* in fact 600 miles distaut Ho refused. They I lieu were consulting as to going baud, and went into an Iudian hut. The boundary Hue ruoa through Pemblua, the American trading p?at on on* aide, the English on the other. A party of constables arrived and arrested them on a civil warrant of Governor Christies, for felony. On thia slight foundation, the St. Louis ii< puiUcan has built up his Hue story of British outrage. May 1 request that you will insert this statement, as I have oousidersd it my duty to make It. lu order to disabuse the publio mind of any false Impression that the officer Oominandiug the British force at Red River, had done anything that was inconsistent with the law of nations. 1 have the honor to be, sir, Your most obedient servant, AN OFFICER IN I'HE BRITISH ARMT To the Editor or N Y.
