The Wttkly Herald will be ready this mornin at nine o'clock, and will be found to be worth of attention. It will, aa usual, contain a complete sum inary of all foreign and domestic intelligent for the week preceding, including an interest iug letter from by Mr. Bennett; the late im poitant news trom the seat of w?r, including all the p irtieulurs received by our last special express of the two buttles under the w?lls of the ny of Mexico; int?resting Washington correspondence, kc. It Will be embeilisBea ing of 11? City of M<?X'co, now commanded by th? American army; *l?o a view of the monster> Great Britain, and of the preparations to get her of? Dundrum sands. Single copies in wrappers, ready for the mails, 6^ cents. Tne Nfwi from Mealco. We publish in this day's paper the details of the very important news which we received yesterday by special express from the seat ot war. In anticipation of the surrender of the capital, we placed in the hands of our artist some days sine, an engraving of the city of Mexico, and as luck would have it he furnished it last evening, exactly in season for us to publish it contemporaneously with the intelligence of the event it?r-lf. It will be found on the outside of thii day's Herald. This news, as the public perhaps are alread) aware, was procured by us by means of a specia express, which we arranged in connection witl two or three papers at the south as long ago ai the month of February last. We undertook i knowing that it would be costly, but we wen determined to have the latest news of importance from the seat of war iu this city u soon at it could be obtained by steam and lightning. It many cases the information received by it wai contradictory and unsatisfactory, and did nol pay the one-hundredth part of the expenses we were put to in obtaining it, but in others, as for instance iu the taking of Vera Cruz, and yesterday ;n fh?. r./4n?tinn nt lh.. /.Itir f.._l - ? "v i^, that we have been amply repaid for all the expanse we have been put to, not bo much in dollar* and cents, perhaps, as in the aatisfaction ol knowing that we put it before the public some three or four days before they would receive il by Cave Johnson's snail-like mail. This news, for instance, is three days in advance of the mail. It left New Orleans on th< 3d mat., and we hare not yet received the paperi troin that city of the 1st inst. We may every moment expect the arrival o another express, with later news from the army Gbn. 8. W.

Kearny ii a Jersey man?a true Jersey blue. Native Candidates for the Presidency.We publish in another column of this day'i paper, letters from General Taylor, Henry Clay Com Stewart, and Ogden Edwards. ey an answers to others from the natives, relative ti the Presidency. It appears that Messrs. Clay Stewart, and Edwards decline having any thin to do \yith the natives, while Old Rough a.i Ready states that be is williug to accept tli office of Chief Magistrate, if it comes from th people at l.irge, and not from any one party. W understand that the independence ot Genera Taylor of all parties pleases the natives so much (hat ttiey think of making hnn their candidate They will probably announce this determinatioi to him as gentiy us possible, so as not to atfec hia nerves. Curious Naval Intelligence.?It is reportec in the naval circles that Commodore Alexandei Slidell Mackenzie is appointed to the command of the steam frigate Mississippi. Commandei M. was once commander of the brig-of-war Somers. Si ce then he has brren stationed in the Gulf as ordnance officer. Now he occupies the position of post-captain. We do not know how true this report may be, having previously heard that Commander M. was appointed to the Albany, one of the finest sloops-of-war in the service, but in the naval circles it is believed, and we, therefore, suppose that he is now commander of the Mississippi. This is singular, but we suppose it is all right. Ocean Steamers.?The Union,from Cherbourg, France, is in her eleventh day; the Sarah Sandt from Liverpool, in her fourteenth; and the Bri tannia, also from Liverpool, is in her seventf d?y. The New York will leave here on th< 10th inst. for Cherbourg; the Caledonia will sai from JtJoston on the I6ih, artd the W&shingtoi will leave this port on the 2Kd for Southamptoi and Bremen. The Washington is now in excel lent order, and will be ready to receive her car go in a few days.

Two Battles % y BKPORJC THE CITY OF MEXICO, j THE COMPLETE OVERTHROW * OF THK | MEXICAN ARMY. ; . -j THE MEXICANS MJGING FOB PEACE. : HOSTILITIES SUSPENDED. 1 MEXICAN CONGRESS CONVOKED r TO t OPEN NEGOTIATIONS. < litn fc(n kti 6 The special and extraordinary overland ex- < press for the Nno York Herald reached Philadelphia early yesterday morning, with the most i important news that has yet been received from < Mexico. This express whs arranged at a great | expense and has been kept in operation for nearly a year, for the purpose of bringing the latest war < : news to this office. I i The news received yesterday, was telegraphed from Philadelphia in the morning for an Extra r Herald. In the afternoon we received the in- i 1 telligence more in detail, which we give in the ) annexed account. ' s On the 3d inst., the New Orleans Picayune ? t received by express the following information, ' ; which arrived by the steamer Fashion, which ! left Vera Cruz on tha 27th of August, and Tam- 1 I pioo on the 29th. 1 i Our army has not only advanaed to the city i of Mexico, but it has had two engagements with 1 the enemy, close under the walls of the city, and t 1 defeated them. The Mexicans have been brought to supplicate a suspension of arms, which Gen. Scott granted. ' The Mexican Congress had been convoked to | take into consideration Mr. Trial's propositions. ' The news was received in Vera Cruz on the ' evening of the 26th ult., by an express courier ' from Orizaba, who brought down the follow- J t ing letter to Mr. Uitnond, the collector of Vera c Cruz, to whose courtesy the Picayune was in- J debted for its use:? v !

M.

Tbe Americans are around Mexico, but lied p oot entered the oity on the 31st. d Such are the meagre details which we have ol ', these important events. No couriers from Gene- i g nil Scott's army direct, have been able to get d through, so far as we can learn, but from the e foregoing statement it is manifest that Gen Scott 1 e holds the city of Mexico at his command, e That Gen. Scott did not choose to enter the I ciy, is clear; he was, doubtless, deterred , from entering it by a desire to save the pride of the Mexicans, when upon the eve of important , i negotiations. t It is now supposed that the extraordinary cou- 1 rier which left Vera Cruz for Mexico on the ! I 12th, 11 day in advance of the regular English > courier, was the bearer of instructions to the { British Minister, to offer again his mediation, and we think we may safely say that he was instructed to do so, if possible, before Gen. Scott 1 entered the capital. We believe the instructions were positive, and no doubt they were obeyed. Having absolute confidence in this representation of the acts of the English government, we think it reasonable to suppose that General Scott was influenced by a knowledge of this mediation to trust once again to the efforts of Mr. Trist to negotiate a peace, and so spared the | Mexicans the humiliation of the armed occupu- 1 tiou of their capital; his characteristic humanity ( , may also be presumed to have strongly influenced 1 i him to save Mexico from the violence of a hos- i tile occupation. 1 i We may recur to this point, and to the pros- , : pets of peace, which we may now entertain. < I We have given none of the rumors current in ! j Very Cruz as to th? fall of Mexico. They are a evidently founded on imperfect rumors of the real state of facts. The rumors circulated here that Santa Annn nnd Valencia were taken prisoners, we believe, j are totally without foundation. In regard to the train under Major Lally, the intelligence is favorable We are informed, from a very responsible source, that Major Lally | is known to have passed Perote, and been on his way, in safety, to Puebla. He made some stay | ' at Jalapa. The Boletin of Jalapn, says that Major Lally's train, after having been attached at Cerro Gordo, retired to the Plan, at th? rime time the guerillas also retired. On the follow- , ing day the train commenced mar 't.iug i">r J.ilana. and on Thursday evening had not yt en i I te'red that place. On the 19th, it was r-porteil i >?t JaUpa that the guerilla? would attack rui i troops near that plaee, and all the evening the r<Md, for near a mile, was covered with men, women nnd children, whom curiosity had attracted there. Thin gave rise to firing of cannon and mnnketry from our troopa, and the citiz-n* succeeded in reaching their homes with, out receiving any injury. The guerillas r?r'- said to have numbered 350 , ' The fire commenced nt half-past five o'clock, r and lasted but ashort time. At night tranquility , , prevailed in the city, and a party of mounted i t men from the train entered the city and pasted , through the principal street. At the sam?tun gnerill s were seen near by. The RnUtin 1 ays thnt the los-< on t ie side of the giicr'Ha!1 ( was email At 11 o'clock on the 19th, Majoi ' Lally inquired of th>- Ale ilde whether the citi . z-ns of Jalap.t would commit hostilities ?g;iin i '' I the Americans if tliev entered, or not; to which ? the Alcalde answered, thit the population wu? 1 unarmed, but that a number of guerillas being in the neighborhood he could not take the responsibility of their action*. On the morning of the 2rfth, the train of wagons and the troops entered the city ; the Boltlin lays that the wagons are Ailed with aick and wounded. On the 24th ull., it waa rumored in ! Vera Cruz that Father Jaraata had attacked the train a short distance the other aide of Jalapa, nit that he had been driven back by our troopa, with lo.ia on both aidea. In addition to the foregoing we have been faror^d with the two notea following, the first of vhich is a translation from the Spaniah :? Jalapa, Aug 30, 1847. The American army, after much suffering on the ?ad. has been again attacked at Lou Rio* by 700 gueillas. anil badly enough treated. fc>en before the en into Jalapa there waa aorne firing. Last night, at ' o'clock, the Americana enU-rad the oity firing, and relating-one minus He waa laaaoed by one or the guoil'as. Tbia morning they *ent a Hag of traoa to the lyuota Miento (oity counoil) to ascertain whether bey ithould enter aa frienda or aa foea ; but. rithnut waiting an anawer, they began to enter, .nd continued up to 1 P. M , when all got In ? I'h.tre are 76 wag<m? and 893 men, among wnom 317 ire wounded and pick ?\l?jor Lally I* sick?the boraxa ire worn out?for which reason It Is supposed they will main here some time It U said that father Jarauta rill attaok them to night. But nothing mora. The other note is us follows : ? Jalapa, Aug. 33, 1847. Majoi, with hi* command, 1* itlll here, and will >ruu>uijr irujaiu umo buiuw uuio i ua ^uriuim u???.11 disappeared from this neighborhood, but to where hey have gone 1 am unable to ray. Abarto, the gaerili chief died la Jalap* a f-w day* since, him iaj of a round received in oae of the attaoka on Major Lally's ommand, and other* by fever. We do not entertain any doubt that the train, is mentioned above, had passed Perote, and gone >n in sufety to Puebla. Intelligence reached Colonel Wilson on the norning of the 27th ult., that Lieut. David Henierson, of Captain Fairchild's compaify of dragoons, and Iub j>??rty, who were sent out by Capt. Wells, on the 15th August, to apprise Maj. Lally of the approach of reinforcsments, were all shot by the guerillas. There is little or no doubt of the correctness of this sad intelligence. Lieut. Henderson was a resident of New Orleans, and but recently embarked as a volunteer in his country's service? lie was a printer by profession, a man of courige and enterprise, and his fate will be sincerely amented by his numerous friends. It is now very generally believed that Captain 3esancon's company went up with the train inder Major Lally. The following letter gives some facta that we lave not before seen, though news promptly eached here of the insurrection in Yucatan:? [Correspondence of the Picayune ] Vera Cri z, Aug -j7, 1847. ] Gentlemen?On Sunday last the city was startled with ntelligence from Yucatan that the whole Indian popu ation of that State had risen against the white, ana in orne district* massacred entirely the white population, rith the exception of the women, whom they only spared or a fate still worse than death. The new* was received here i y the Frenoh Consul in i communication from the French Consul at Campeaohy, md the massaore he says was universal, no dlatinotlon >*lug made except between Indians and whites, In some >f the districts the wfttteg have succeeded in reaohlng he oitius. and were there waiting suocor There is good vason to hope these will be able to defend themselves intil they are reinforced. At Campeaohy they were in ixpectation of an immediate attack The French brigs I war La Purouse and La Pilate have, It is understood, >oth been ordered to Campeaohy, and there is a report hat Commodore Purry is about ordering down one ol ho vessels of our squadron. Th?i*n ia rtHrhuns mhyim nTn.crtf?ra.linn in tha Annnnntj >f the extent of the massacre, but of tha main faots here is not a doubt. The Indiana in Yuoatan have bean ;iore oppressed than in any otker part of Mexico, besause the landholder! are generally absentees molding in ipain. and trust the management ot tbelr estates to it.ewards, who. to subserve their own Interests, grind the unfortunate Peon to the dust. An ezprebS arrived here on Tuesday, from Alvaradn lo Com I'erry.with information that the guerillas had itUcked that place the uiglit be (ore. and killed a aur jeon and twe marine* in that town The steamers I'etrita and Scorpion were immediately despatched to reinforoe those in possession of the place.

Gentlsmen:?Welast evening bad an express from Orizaba, with a single dispatch under date ol the 35th iunt., giving as the important Information that a part of the ltfexioan forcea, under Oan. Valencia, had been completely routed by Gen. Scott, and that a column, under the immediate command of Santa Anna, fell ba?k upon the city. The action took place at San Angel, a^laoe some six or eight miles southwest from the capital, on the 30th inst As soon as Santa Anna found himself in a comparative state of personal seourity, he deapatobed a flag to General Soott. requesting a suspension of hostilities until time should be albrded for formal action on the subject of propositions, Intimating at the same time, the readiness of the Government to reoelve those brought by Mr. Trlst The Minister of Foreign Affairs also immediately wrote circulars published in the Diatio Official, calling an immediate session ot Congress, with the object of taking these propositions into consideration. If the Yankee* army had been one of Visigoths, greater alarm would not hare been created by their approach and the government have been driven and whipped, and all parties soared into the measure that common sense has failed in induoing them to take long ago, without coercion. It is an excellent sign that the Mexicans value their oapltal so highly and the best results are to be expected from this exhibition of u shade of real and becoming pride. Whether Gen. Scott decided to drive them to desperation, by advancing at once upon the olty. or, to lay upon his arms, keeping it at his feet, we have not learned. Our next express, which is anxiously expected, will tell, aud 1 hope to inform you by the next steamer tnat jeint commissioners are engaged in arranging term* of peuctx God grant that their efforts will be early successful, and I am full of hope that suoh will be the case. The despatch whioh oontaius the intelligence which I now give, winds up with this unqualified declaration:?1" Peace will positively be the result." The steamer Fashion starts immediately for New Orleans, and if there were any further news I have no time to* write it. There is, however, nothing except some unpleasant intelligence from Alvarado, to the eftt-c that a small party of guerillas had entered the towu and cut off two or three, out of less than a dozen, of the marines stationed there as a Custom-home guard. From Campeacby we have nothing new. The health of the city improves daily,but it is yet very dangerous tor strani(ers to ooine here. Two naval officers who bad been detained a few days waiting for a steamer, are very ill?one of them, in all probability, fatally ho 1 lo not give their names, as it might create uneasiness in iheir families. Yours respectfully, INDICATOR. [From the Washington Uuion, Sept 9 J We are indebted to the War Departmunt for the foilowiog letter, received this evening, that was no doubt sent on by the same express from New Orleaus which brought on Mr. Wooibridge's letter.

The fluctuations in the exportation to different countries have barn exceedingly large. In the first six months of 1H46, the United States stood the fourteenth in the list, wli'lein the pust six months *f 1847, we stood the fifth in tbe rank of mxrkets lor firiiisb plain calicoes. In the rank of markets for printed aud dyed oalicoes, we stood tbe eighth in 1846, we now stand the second. This is a great jump in the scale, and places us in a very Important position as consumers of British manufactures. The increased importation of mirufaotures from Great Britain, has not been oonflned to these artloles ; iu nearly every other description of cottou goods, In linen and woolen goods, there has been a corresponding increase Wo were prepared to see large shipments of these articles from the ports of Great Britain to this country, but not to the extent olfioially announced. The immense exportation of breadHluffs from our ports to England, Ireland and Scotland, prepared us to expeot an unusual Influx ot British manufactures. Notwithstanding the increased importation of foreign manufactures, and the importation of an Immense amount of specie, quotations tot sterling exchange have, up to within the past week, ruled very low, and the advance reoently has not been produoed so nuoh by any reduction in the supply of bills, as by the want of confidence in the quality of those drawn. There must still be a large balanoe in our favoi, and that balauce Is mere likely to increase than decrease. Our imports are rapid ly tailing ok, wnue tno exports continue large ins prosperous condition of thla country, the abun4*n*e of money created by the extensive foreign demand for our agricultural products, and the abundance of every article of bfoadstu(fs,have placed un in a position to become Urge consumers of all the necessaries and many of the luxuries of Tife; but fortunately more *i the necessaries of life are new produced- and manufactured withiu our limits than oyer before, and our own industry is therefore better remunerated.
