Our columns t<?-dav contain all the additional war intelligence that we hhve received since the receipt of our special express, but not near as much as they would contain if the mails had not failed. Yesterday we received three Southern mails in one parcel, but they brought no later than to the third instant from New Orleans. The papers of the fourth have not come to hand, very much to our annoyance, for we hoped to be able to publish to-day additional intelliff gence of the suspension of hostilities, &c. We hope soon to lay before our readers some | further intelligence from the Capital equally as interesting as what we received by express ^few days since?perhaps the terms of a treaty of peace between the two countries, which may be brought to New Orleans by the next steamship arrival front Vera Cruz. We are now in the mid*' of a most important period of our history. Axwi from Europe. The city was thrown into some little exitement yesterday, in consequence of the report that the packet ship New World was below, with three or four days later intelligence on board. Our new* collector ha* not yet brought us our papers; the probability is, therefore, that the New World is not below. The mercantile portion of the community are exceedingly anxious to receive further news from Europe, as in all probability they will learn by the next arrival from there, whether the potato rot has really made its appearance in Ireland or England, and also the effect of the protested bills. The Sarah Sands is in her fourteenth day, the French steamer Union in her twelfth, and the Britannia in her eighth. All of them will be due, and will probably arrive in three or four days, with the intelligence so much looked for. In the meantime there may be some arrivals of packet ships with later news than any we have received. The last packet ship thai reached here, brought us dates to the eleventh of August, only a week behind those brought by the Cale ionia to Boston; and as easterly winds prevail generally at this time of the year, it is not improbable that one or more of our packet ships will arrive, bringing news some days later than what we have received. We shall keep a sharp look out for them, and issue an Extra Herald immediately after we receive later news, whether by steamship or packet shipv * CruUe of the United State* Ship Savannah? The Suffering Emigrant*. The U. S. ship Savannah arrived in this port on the 8th inst , after an absence of nearly four years in the Pacific ocean. She left here on the 19th of October, 1843, and since then has sailed seventy-two thousand two hundred and eightyfour miles ; and it speaks volumes in favor of the discipline on board, and the sanitary regulations adopud by the officers, that of a crew of some seven hundred men, there were only thirty deaths, two of which were caused by the enemy and two by accident. We have been favored with some extracts from the log book, by the officers, which we take pleasure in laying before our renders. Tne following table shows the places visited, the number of days at sea, the distance sailed, and the time she remained at each port, aa well as the names of the several commanders, during her long voyage:?

Altogether the cruise has been a very fortunate one, and we congratulate the officer* and crew on their safe return to their families and friend* By the Savannah we have received a letter addressed by Mr John Sinclair to Wm. A. Bartletl, Eaq., Chief Magistrate at .San Francisco, giving an account of the sufferings of the emigrants in the < aliform* mountains, and the exertions niMde for their relief and succor. It is as follows ;? . ? R*!?chq obi. Paio, Jan. 39, 1847. Wm. A. B?nti.ittt, k?h., rhief Magistrate at Verba Buena Dbab Si* Allow me to congratulate you on your return to liberty and the magisterial chair I have nothing official to communicate, but, unofficially, I have a case to Inform you of in which I am warmly, deeply interested; a case wherein the lives of ftbout sixty of our fellow-belnga are interested, and who depend upon the exertions of those hiflug the power to MTt them from death The toll owing narrative of fact*, to far as I hare learned them, may be depended on; a full aad perfect narrative ! am not able to giy.- you, net baring *? * Seen any Of the unfortunate sufferers. It appears that, r about toe 18th t December. nine men, five wojaen. ana two Indians, in the employ of rapt Mutter, left what is called Raid's party of eminent*, wbo have been JeUin- a ed in the mountain* hy the snow, with the Intention of ^ reaching thin settlement, driven to, th'? 00"r"?.',n. n certain death which awe ted them In the mountains jf They started, iu a manner of speaking, tI 910ns (one of the men baring only two pouud. of beef), " and. as you will understand, on foot, the snow being P thain wImrti tli?v wortf too ftdt dwp. A I?W dftjl MMir w"ds two of the men became so weak that they oon ?' eluded U, turn back These two, It U supposed, perish- h ed The rest endeavored to struggle on a while, every * hour beholding them getting weaker and u? < at last they were obliged to throw away the blankets which they oarried to shield them from the piercing & I oold which, in those regions, is Intense. At what time F they got entirely out of provisions 1 am unable to say; but in the midst of their suflerlngs a snow storm caiue K ' on, which lasted three days and nights; and during the a whole of that time they were without fire, and, aa far as H I haye understood, without food. During these three . dreadful days and nights they sat huddled together in the snow, their heads resting upon their knees, exposed a! to the pitiless storm Ureat Uod! who can imagine the ai sufferings of these helpless, houseless beings at that n time, without food and without fire '?no prospect be- g fore them but death, and that death the moat horrible tl which can fall to the lot of man ! P After the storm ceased, they succeeded in getting fire, and again endeavored to pursue their pathless course . through the newly-fallen snow. Whether any of the party died previous to this 1 oannot say; but, if not, h death was there hovering fearfully over them Again " they camped? " and each sate sullenly apart, . Gorging himaeif in gloom : no love was left; , All earth was but one thought, and that waa death, ? lUlUltfUlBbV >UU lll|lVtiVlM. ?uvt ?u? m Of famlns fed upon all entrails.

(tern neoesslty, and that love of life whloh even sufferings the most Intense oaunot vanquish, compelled Hum: to devour their dead. n Let me close this tale of horror. Suffloe it to say, that seven out of the sixteen reached thia settlement, forty miles above me?five women and two men. The rest t died at different times, and slz'sf them became lood for ( the living. The two Indians, who bal been sent there eailv in the season by Capt. Sutter, with provisions, were ' the last that died, and they likewise were eaten, with the exception of their heads. Thoae who escaped J arrived with hardly sufficient clothing to cover their ! nakedness, their olothea being nearly burnt from their ' backs by keeping so oloso to their fires, and most of ' them have tneir feet badly frozen. They were one month on the road, the distance travelled being only ( about one hundred and ten milea. They report those remaining in the mountains still alive by eating the bullock hidaa, and being on short allowanoe, may nave ? provisions up to the middle of next month. ' Mr Kern, Capt. Sutter, Mr. MoKinisty and myself, e are doing all wi' can to raise men to go the assistance of v those in the mountains, and have pledged ourselves to pay each man three dollars per day from the time they start until they return, provided the emigrants themselves should not be able to pay. We likewise hold our B selves reponslble for the provisions, at the same time we j feel confident that our government will be willing to pay all the oxpenses incurred In such a case aa this, and we a know that there is not one of our fellow-citizens but h who is willing to aid and assist us, in saving the lives of 0I those helpless women and children. | M IIy the Jd of February, I thinn about iourteen D; men will be able to start, which will be nearly every j able-bodied man in this vicinity, and I would urge the al propriety of calling a meeting of the inhabitants of 0I Verba fiuena. and from among them endeavor to raise about twenty able bodied men to torin a second party to go te their assistance. as the men who are going from ol here will not be able to go back. Capt. Hull will like- n, wise, undoubtedly, exert all his influence and authority . in furthering such an undertaaiog. P' You will excuse this hasty bketch of their sufferings, as 1 have not time to be more explicit, i leave hereto- *' morrow, on foot, for the starting point, distant forty ^ miles, to bring on and complete every thing for the expedition . You will oblige me by making this communicction as IB public as possible, as I wish every one to know the situation of these unfortunate people, in order that it may w stir them to exertion in their behalf. ,, I r main, yours, respectfully, (Signed) JOHN SINCLAIR. We informed our readers a few days since of it the result ol the expedition, and do not consider it necessary to repent whut Wf th^n published. o< ? gi Naval Affaiks.?We were yesterday made to say that Commander McKenzie was a Commo- h dore. We were made to say so by the types, but in no other way. We love to be accurate, n and hence this paragraph. " Steamship Cambria arrived at Halifax on b her way to Liverpool, on the afternoon of the 3d J inst. She had been detained by the fog.

There ? is no choice of Governor by the people, as has been the u ease in this State for some years past. That there will be a whin majority in both Senate and House, as hereto- | fore, there can be no doubt, and ot course an election of t whig State officers, ns heretofore The whig majority on ) joint ballot, last year, was some rising of 30. I Sporting Intelligence. ? Centsf.vii.ke Covkif., L. I.?On Monday, Lady Suf- J folk and James K. Polk, the fastest couple in the known ] world, contend for a proprietor's purse of $400. and from ' the interest in the affair, already manifest in the sport- J ing circles, we anticipate the greatest attendanoe it the j < entreville that has been seen on a race track since the ' famous match between Fashion and Peytona. Kvery J sporting man in this vlciuity is on the qui vivr, and the | betting is runniog high. At the present writing, It ap- r pears to be about even. It was reported, a few days since, that pigeon* were I so numerous in New Jersey and Long Island, io the 1 neighborhood of New York, that their weight actually ^ broke the limbs of the trees on which they alighted, and j. that there never was a better chance for sport. No sooner was the announcement made, than many of our citi- k zens. armed and equipped, as the law directs, proceeded ' across the river ''on dreadful deeds intent," leaving business and all the cares of life behind them. Awuy they went with sacks, bags ami baskets in which to carrv the dead, but judge of their mortification in finding S that ?carcely a pigeon was to be seen. Atone time 111'- . teen of these sportsmen might be seen crossing fences ? and ditches in quest of game, but not a feather did they Q see. They held a consultation, we are informed, and arrived at the conclusion that they were gold and done a brown. t City Intelligence Tut: Weather.?The thermometer at 1J o'clock M. yesterday, stood as low as 03 degrees In Wall street.

Therewill be other 1 musenients besides these pieces, for we perceive that the autioal drama of the "Floating Beaoon, or the NatureIan Wreckers," will be performed, and that between \ lese several pieoea, Miss Deloralne and Mr. Yatea will i erform a grand fancy danoe and a hornpipe.

I am acquainted with the manner in whiiili the trade is carried on on thecoast of Africa; some tims in December, 1845, I captured the brig"Pons," of Philadelphia, with eight hundred and ninety-seven slaves on board. The usual course for the persons engaged iu it. is to establish themselves at one point on the coast where the slaves can be obtained and conveniently shipped; a treaty is then made with a chief, who has the jurisdiction of that part of the country, for permission to I build barraooons, for which he is given a supply of arms and ammunition, which gives him an advantage, and renders him more formidable than the petty kings of the vicinity. When they make war they attack the villages and destroy all the old men and women, and generally the children under four or six years of age, the others are brought down and placed in the barracoons. This course is pursued on some part of the coast, on other parts a different course is pursued. The negroes arc brought from a distance in the interior. On thi> southern coast in particular, they art; used as beasts of burden of the country ; they bring down gum copal, ebouy, ivory, &c , which are sold to honest traders, and the negroes themselves placed in the barracoons and sold to the slave dealers. Along that part of the coast, near Oallenos, Cape Mount, and New "Sisters, they are sent on board ship handcuffed ; on other parts of the coast they are put on board ship without irons. Those on board the i'ons were not ironed. They are generally taken from the baracoons to the ship in large canoe<*. managed by Kroomen. The canoes will carry .'>0 or 60 lias heard that a cargo of slaves was shipped at Cape Mount Oallenos. The Tons was a fair trader at 0 o'clock in the morning, and at 8 o'clock the same evening sailed with a cargo of slaves. At the slave stations they have a great many men employed, so that the whole charaoter of the vessel enn be changed In a few hours, formerly barracooi.i were within two or three miles of most of the rivers; but sinoe the British have burnt down some of the stations, they are further in the iuterior. That part of the coast, north and south of (Jailenos and Cape Mount, and north and south eastward of Monrovia, are the parts particularly watched, because they are the points from which the slave trade is carried on. In December, 1844, the bark Atalanta sailed from Cape Mount with a cargo of four hundred slaves. The Atalanta was for a long time known as an honest trader on the coast, and was considered above susploion. A few days before she sailed she was boarded by a British man of-war, and her papers Inspected, after which she anchored at Cape Mount, took In the slaves, and soon alter passed under the range of the British man-of-war's guns, who had a few days before allowed her to pass as the honest trader It was soon after ascertained that she was sold to Capt Carnot. A slave deck is made of lumber; it can be laid in a few hours; no planing or grooving is neoessary; it may be laid without saw or hammer. While in the barracoons the slaves are subsisted on rice; after they are shipped, a pound of rioe and a pint of watar are allowed each man per day The Court adjourned before the examination of Capt.

[From the New Orleans Picayune, Sept. 3 ] We have a file of the Obitrver and Onzettt, published ,t Belize, Honduras, to the 14th of August. From the aper of the latest date we extraot the following lnteligence touching Guatemala. Apprehensions have been elt in some quarters touching Ihe interference of thin lew Republic in the war with M exioo. There is nothing n the following to justify fears We have received letters and papers from Ouatemala ? ft... oath ?lt ln/,ln.l<u finri In fha iln-.tl* nt 1 h? Oth, the following In relation to the decree of the 31st ilaroh. On the Joth of Jane there wore concluded and igned the treaties of friendship, commerce and naviga ion with Oreat Britain and the Hanseatic cities of Lu>eo, Bremen, and Hamburg; and by them the Republic if Guatemala is recognized as a sovereign and indepenlent nation. This step realizes already In part the great views which ha government had in promulgating the solemn revoluion of that memorable day, as one of the principal moires for deciding on that measure waa to acquire the lapaelty of entering into relations with foreign nations, ind to afflanoe them by means of treaties. There will oilow, and we hope will be quiokly conoluded, that which 9 already Initiated with France. The good result of this .ffair, without doubt, is owing to the favorable disposiions of the dlplomatio agents, their adhesion to their lountry, and their respeot to the government. Costa Rica Is also endeavoring to " go alone,1' as a ?<> iarate and independent republic; her Constitutional ^ongress was installed as far back as the first of May. The Belieze paper gives a favorable aooount or the lepubllo and her President, Senor Castro. We make an xtract from the Observer and Gazette, with a slight erbti correction: The idea of the administration of Costa Rica already appears sufficiently clear?that of elevating it to the auk to whioh its favorable circumstance call it, an dea whioh wo cannot do less than applaud as the most iroper, and that which the precarious position in which tates of the anolent Republic of Central America have bund themselves since the dissolution of the federal empact, most imperiously demands. For the rest, the treaties have nothing onerous in hem, and there has been endeavored to avoid in thein ihat might clash with unenlightened opinions or prejulices. In conformity with modern policy, they are adusted according to the principles of reciprocity, and o equality and justice ; without any particular concesions or exemptions, because the Government on these natters observes a principle neither to graAt nor ask >rivileges. The results begin to confirm that the object of the nated act?that it may bring to oar beloved country he degree of prosperity and aggrandizement which re should desire for it, and to which it is called by its nany and varied elements, as yet soarcely seen and elt, but which, with time and order, an economical and lonslderate administration will know how to devalope.

Baker, late h member of Congress trom Illinois, and more recently well known as commanding a regiment of Illinois volunteers in Mexico, " addressed the meeting, In one of those soul-stirring speeches for which he is so remarkable. Hi proceeded in a plain, sensible, narrative style, to hold up. in bold relief, the strong points of character of General Taylor, and gave reason heaped upon reason why the people, irrespective of party should support him for President The speaker happily contrasted the capabilities and glorious deeds of Taylor, with those of other (ienerals, and showed him up, not only a great military captain, but also a great and good man?not only capable of fighting great battles, but fitted to wear the civic wreath. He was for Taylor, because great occasions call for great men to guide the helm of State, when mere party considerations should be lost sight of?should be merged in the patriotic determination to stand by. and support the great interests of the country. We want, said he, a man for President who will calm the violence of party, and advance the public good- -the peaoe, prosperity and happiness of the people of this great nation If Oen. Taylor wa.3 entirely opposed to him, he would prefer him to any good sort of a second-rate man with whom he entirely concurred If, said he, we elect Taylor. we eleot a man whose most prominent fault is his wilful, perverse, persevering obstinacy in doing right, and In promoting justice.

The shipments of breadstuffs are rapidly decreasing to all places but Great Britaid. To that country they are much smaller than usual, but when we take into Consideration the tremendous deoline in prioes, they hold up exceedingly well. Shippers are waiting further advices from the other side. The receipts of thu Kail River Railroad Company for the month of August, were $16,099 08, and the expense* $6,617 OA, showing a net income for the month of $9,682 03.

The Government of Malta, under date July 30,1847, transmitted to the committees of British and native merchants of that island, a oopy of a despatch from O. W. Crowe, Esq, her Britannic M?je?ty'i Agent and# Consul General at Tripoli, dated the 20th ult., notifying that the importation anil sale of all warlike (tore*. such as guns, gun barrels, gunpowder, gun flints, munket and pistol balls, had been strictly prohibited by the government of Tripoli; and that any suoh artioles, b-ing landed at any of the porta, or on the ooast 01 that Regency, will be confiscated as contraband, From the Jturora A' Matanzai we extract a table of the comparative receipts at the custom house during the first half of the years I84H and 1847, at the port of Hagua la Orande, in the Island of Cuba, and point ,to thorn as an evidence of the Increase of trade in that port. It Is thought that ere long Hagua la Orande will assume an importance similar to Cardenas. CoMMkki-k or Haoija Lt Diumr, Cl'Si, 1846 aid 1847. r- Vutile. -? General Imports. Export!
