Our special overland express from New Orleans has again placed us in possession of some highly exciting and important intelligence from the seat of war. It will be seen that the news received at this office by express last Friday was correet, except in one particular, namely, that the Mexicans had supplicated for the armistice. It appears that it was asked for by General Scott, at the instance of the British Embassy. Two terrible battles, or rather a sucee*sion of battles, had been fought by the Americans and Mexicans, and a series of splendid victories achieved by the Americans. News from Europe. Another packet ship arrived yesterday from Liverpool, whence she sailed on the 17th ult , only two days before the last steamer. We may now the more confidently expect later intelligence from Europe by a packet ship, unless the Union soon makes her appearance. Thk Cask or Tkimk, Wabd k Co.?The suspensiun of this extensive private banking establishment, will not create so 'niucli embarrassment in financial circles {as first anticipated.

Should the accounts from England be at all favorable, every farthing ot their debts w ill be promptly paid. The surplus exhibited is very large, and it would take a series of serious louses to make the concern bankrupt A very Urge amount of their bills have been protested for non-nccepunce, which places thein lu h better po ition thun if tliey had been pro tested tor non-payment, as the property upon wti'cii the nou-<iccepted bills were drawn tall* sgtui into their hands, and is appropriated to th-ir I.quid tion. Bills protested for non-payment lake itieir chance amongst the liabilities of ihe tiouse upou which th y are drawn. The Steamer Washington.?The company having completed the improvements on the Washington, fhe wil. take her berth at Pier No i, North River, this afternoon. She will come down under steam, and will take a few turns in the bay. We are informed by the agent, that the principal part of her luel and stores are already on board tor the voyage, and that she is full of freight, and has a very fair list of passengers. She will positively sail on the23d instant. We shail give to-morrow a full account o( the improvements and alterations made upon her. Thk Yellow Fever in New Orleans.?We hope that the New Orleans papers will publish the Humes of those who die in that city ot the yellow fever. We are frequently requested to give lists of the names in the Herald; we do publish all those we find mentioned in the New Or leans papers; but they ^are necessarily imperfect and lLcomplete. It is a Bad duty that the press ol that city owe to the thousands in other cities who are daily Losing friendsand relatives by this dreadful scourge.

The overland express for your offlce has Just arrived, and I hasten to telegraph the news to you. It la of the greatest Importance. I According to the Picayune of the 8th inat., the Mary Kingaland arrived at New Orleans on the 7th from Vera Crus She brings the much desired and anxiously exp oted intelligence from Gen Scott. The two battles between the Amerioan and MexiO ins. victorious to" th* forumr. wore feuftht at Csntreras, or Coysaoan. and Cburubuoeo, so called from the field works of the enemy The proposition for an armistioe was made by Generul Scott, and it is suppow-d to have been at the initvnce of thr British Emhoiiy The report, hitherto given, that the city of Mexico was at the merry of the Amerioan army, seems to be Unfounded, and ihould prace nut follow from thr ??- I lociationi thin ptnd ng, another batt'e would have to he jtugnt. According to a letter from Mr. Keudnll. dated T?c? buy*. Aug 3-2. the ArchbishopV palace of tbat place wan occupied by General Scott and a portion of the Amerio*n army, after dtfrating the enemy in two of the hardrtt fought battles of the war. Annexed are the particulars of the manoeuvre*, and brillUnt light*, tog. ther wit), an incomplete liat of tb* American officer* killed and wounded. On the 14th August, a rec nnoi*?n?q made by Colonel Duncan, having satisfied General Hcott tbat a road for artillery could be cut from Chaleoa to Bun August in General Worth's division moved in that direction on the 18th, followed by Generals Quitman, Pillow.and Twigts By this movement a pew line of operations was taken on the southern and northwestern sides of the city of Mexico, and the tlrong w?rkt of El Penon and Itexicalcingo, on which Santo. Jlnna had beitowed tueh immenee labor, wre completely turned. On the 16 th General Worth marched as far as the Taolenga of Han Gregoria, wbeu a halt was ordered by General Soott, as General Twiggs bad met a large force ot the enemy near Chaleoa. Twiggs promptly ordered the heaviest trains, (guns probably.) unllmbered. and after a few discharges the enemy was dispersed.with a loss of six killed. On the 17th. General Worth resumed his march over a terribly bad road, but by 8 o'olock In the morning be was in sight of the domes and spires of the capital, without opposition, exccpt that rocks had been rolled on to the road, and ditches dug. evidentty showing that General Soott had stolen a march on Bant* Anna uu rw:uiug buii fjuini, uuwvTor, a icibtnriog are was opened on the head of his column by the enemy stationed In an advantageous position, which was noon silenced j by Col. Bmlth'a light battalion of the 3d artillery, nnder Major Galb. Another attack wai shortly after made. | but again the nemy's picket* were driren In without ' Iom. At 7 o'clock on the 18th, General Soott arrived at Ran J Augustine. At 10 o'clook General Worth we* in full I march for the city of Mexioo by the main road. Majors 1 Smith and Trumbull, Capt. Mason and other engineer ! officers, were *ent In advance, rupported by Capt. Blake's squadron of dragoons, to reconnoitre, when a masked battery opened upon them, and killed Capt. Thornton, of the 3d dragoons, bealde* seriously wounding a guide. Col. OviADd'f brigade was then ordered to occupy a poeition on the plain in sight of the enemy'* batterivs at St. Angnatlne. whilst Col. Stark'* brigade aud Duncan'* battery took their station in the rear clone by. A jt'ty waa then ?ent out to reconnoitre, to ascertain the practicability of finding a road by whieh the village of San Angel could be reached, and the *troughold of bau Antonio turned Thl* party had a gklrmlah with the enemy, killing Ave j or tlx, and taking aa many prisoner*, without losing a man. The result of the reoonnolaano* waa favorable, and It waa ascertained that a road oonld be made. The Mexlaina were plainly seen In force near Bronteraa, and at a . eounell held that night It waa determined to attack { th??m hi th# morning Whllat thin rt?toonolanuca WM going on, Oan.

At 3 o'clock General Cadwalader wa* ordered out to support Col Kilry, reinforcements being seen on their way out from tb* olty, whilst General Pearce wa* sent to sustain Gen (Col ) Smith. The firing from the enemy's batteries was inoefsant. About 4 o'clock, Grneral Scott arrived, and seeing tbe immense strength of the Mexicans, at once ordered General Shields' brigade to eupport Riley and Cadwallader. and prevent, trpossible, a junotiou of the force* coming out from the olty with those of Valencia; bit few of the movements of our own troops could oe seen but every motion of the enemy was visible. The order of battle of Valencia wa* most imposing The infantry were seen drawn up to support the batteflsafl ?Kila? lMk*l linna nf ?ka anam.). mtrn. tioned in the rear, &a if waiting the shock of the battle Two separate charge* of the latter were dUtlnotly seen to be repultad by Col. Riley. Until night had fairly oloxed in, the firing from the enemy'* batter!*) had net lacked. It had been a continuous roar for nearly six hoar*. Oen Soott retired to San Auguitin about 8 o'clock, in the mldat of a hard rain, and Oen. Twlgg* and Gen. Pillow, came in about 11 o'clock, oompl*t*ly exbauited not anticipating the great atrength of th* work* of th* euemy. It wu thought that the batterie* could be taken at a dash, and that the troop* would all be comfortably quart?rvd atriau Angel for the night. Inatead of this,a larj.* portion of them were compelled to blvouao wlthont blanket*, in the midst of a pitiless itorm. On the JUth Worth was ordered to move with a part of bi*divi*lon, Garland'* brigade, to aid in the attaok on Valencia, a* to foroe this position, waa deemed lndiipemable. At 7 o'clock, a few diaoharges of cannon were heard, a rattling of musketry, and some even said, that in the diatanoe ftorses of the enemy oould be *een flying toward* the city, yet few deemed that the batteries had b?en stormed and carried yet. It was so Oen Soott himself accompanied General Worth, and started for the soene of action, when they were met by Captain Mason, with the joyful intelligence that Valencia had been completely routed, after a terrible struggle. The attaok upon hi* works was planned by Gen. Smith, and resulted in the oapture of IS pleoes of artillery, and some 1500 prisoners, among them Gens. Blanoo, Garoia, Mendosa, and the notorious 8alas. He also captured all the ammunition and oamp equipage, whilst the road over which those who esoaped fled was strewed with muskets. No less than seven hundred of the enemy,among themmany offioers, were left dead on the field, whilst tha num ber of wounded was far greater, and the works of Contreras completely in the power of the American army. Gen. Scott at once ordered Gen. Worth to fall baok on San Antonio, to turn and oapture that work, and then push on towards the capital by the main road, whilst the main body of the army moved on towards Ssn Angel and Cohojcan. Gen. Twiggs bad scaroely mured half a mile beyond the latt?r village, when a rattling fire of musketry announced that it was actively engaged with the outposts of the enemy, and the heavy booming of cannon now gave token that the noted seoond division had fallen on anotner strong worK; a lew minutes more, ana tremendous firing from the right made it evident that (Jen. Worth's division was actively engaged. He had completely turned the strong works of Sa&tonio, bnt while doing so the enemy had abandoned the place with the loss of three heavy guns, and had fallen back on a second stronger line of works. It was now one o'clock in the afternoon, and about thx commencement of the battle, and suoh a rattling of fire arms baa seldom or oarer been heard on the continent of America, aocompanlnd with such booming of artillery: ai d this was oontinued over two hours, when the euelny was completely routed from every point, and until those who were not killed or taken prisoners were in full flight for the city. i un flbrHUgiii ui uio I'UBUiy 11 tuia place was jluuwu to hare been at least fifteen thousand, and many say twenty thousand, all fresh troops, and In a position of uncommon strength Opposed to them were about six thousand Americans, j*ded and broken down by marches, couutfrmarehcB and Incessant toll At Churubusco the Mexicans say Santa Anna com manded In person, but that he retiret^early. The young men of the capital, from whom 10 much was expected nearly all fled, without firing a gun. The loss on our side ha* fallen most heavily upon the South Carolina and New York volant-en?the 6th Inlantry nd Smith's Battalion, and the batteries of Capbt Magruder and Taylor. The South Carolina regiment was nearly cut to pieoes. Thirteen Mexican Generals were, killed and wounded More ammunition was captured than General Scott has used since he has been in the country.

Thutii?Mi Collini ?1There la no oountry perhapo, where national oharaoter U so strongly marked ? none where native humor so richly abounds, as In Ireland It Is original, and entirely tut gtntrit. It If full ot genuine nature, and has all the elements of fun Mixed with those of wit and spirit Miaa Kdgeworth has written elaborately of Irish built, and even as spirited sketches of Irish character. Lady Morgan's no less admirable sketches have vhilrd away many a long beur; and Lever, with his natural and high wrought delineations of Irish scenes, and Lover's more recent exhibitions. have made us familiar with the whims and eooentricities of the sons of ?rin. But thoroughly to appreciate Irish wit and Irian character, the publie must witness l olllns' admirable delineations. Since the loss of poor Power, he stands unrivalled and alone as the representative of this class upon the stage. His humor Is quiet, rich snd racy?his brogue natural and national? and gives great effect to passages of passion -to sudden transitions of feeling, and to every point of humor. His singing, too, is. equal to his acting. His voice Is a fine tenor, and his songs are given with such sweetness and archness that the effect is irresistible. In this respect I he excels all who have gone before him. His perform- j ance of the Irlth Ambassador, last night, was gentle- ! manly, chaste, and effective?keeping the bouse In a 1 roar; yet neither exaggeration nor violating the inten- i tions of the author He is the very spirit of fun, and diffuses life and laughter through the bouse. His entur* talnments are rich and delightfully amusing, and we reoommend every one who loves to laugh to visit the Park te-night, when Mr. Collins will appear in two of his best characters His engagement oonoludes in four nights, when we shall have the pleasure of welcoming the accomplished Mrs Mowatt, and her new play, so long expected, so long looked for. Chatham Theatsk ?To-night we have three exoellent pieces presented, vis: "Follies of a Night," in which Mr. Waloott and Miss Clarke play the leading charaoters, in a splendid style?then the faree of " Kill or Cure,'' whloh will oertalnly both kill and oure all kinds of melancholy, and the whole will conclude with the nautloal drama of " Tom Cringle's Log " All these pieoes. with a variety of dancing, by Miss Deloraine and Mr Yates, is surely enough for one evening Mr. Fletcher's muragemerit of the Chatham, shows how thoroughly he understands theatrical taetlci, and pleasing tho taste of the many headed public. Castle Garden.?The second performance of the " Barblere di 8evlglla'' went off last night, In much the same style as previously, and we need not give any other account of the opera, nor of the drbutant Lorini. There will be no performance at the garden this evening, but | to-morrow the celebrated opera of" Kemeo and Juliet,'' (which attracted such a large audience, and received, as it deserved, unbounded appln use, on Friday last.) will be repeated by the Hlspano Italian company ; the exoellent ' Prima Donna, Tedesco . performing the part of Romeo. This is the bent answer she oan give to some silly private gentlemen who have said that she fell sick on purpose, not wishlug to appear in this part, as she was not confident of her own ability, and not well supported by the rest of the cast. Tedeeco will always be Tedesoo. 8lgncra Carantl di Vita will perform the character of Juliet. This is oertainly enough to attract another audience of over three thousand persons, who will undoubtedly go.

Siunob Blitz, the celebrated magician and ventrilo quist. has lately been astonishing the town by his feats of diaolrrit and bis extraordinary powers of voice ? The Society Library Roum is patronised nightly by the elite of the good city of (Jotham, and we will venture to nay. that no audience can be more highly delighted than those who assemble to witness Signor ililts's wonderful performance As to his ventriloquism one could scaroe ly Imagine the bum,in voloe capable of nuoh a variety ol expression where It not they had "auricular demonstration''of the fact.

Judge Edmoso*? Oreat difficulty must necessarily attend the investment on bond and mortgage of moneys in Court, under the present system; the clerk of the Court of Appeals is alone charged with the custody of the moneys in Court, and will alone be authorized to make suoh investments, he will bo continually receiving vouohers from all parts of the State; and resldinor himself at Albanv, it cannot be expected that be will have any personal knowledge as to the value of property, excepting such as may be in the lui m diate neighborhood of bis reuldenoe.

To remedy this iuoonve nienoe, I suggest the parties interested should select tu< proper place for the investment, and then a reference to ascertain its suitability and propriety; and upon the coming in of the report, they shall enter an order directing the olerk of the court to apply tbe investment upon tbe speciflo bond and mortgage mentioned in threport.
