The Liverpool market was, however, numerously attended by buyer* from distant part* of the oountry on Tuesday; but the inquiry was directed more to flour than to wheat; and whilst the latter article receded 3d per 70 lb , the former rose tid to Is per bbl Later In the week the advance on flour could not be maintained; still a large amount of buslnesr was done on Friday, the best brand* ot western canal bringing i -2tin Ud, and secondary serts -J4* to 26* per bbl Owing to ' the unfavorable report* from Irelnnd relative to potai toes. Indian corn excited a good deal of attention at r Liverpool on Friday, but it was necessary to accept low terms to effect salen Farmers being still busily occupied in the fields, little time has been afforded to thrssh i or bring new corn to market and the supplies at the leading town* in the agricultural district* have been quite moderate; the quantity brought forward has. i nevertheless, proved more tban equal to the demand, i aud pries have undergone a further depression as well at the different shlnplng ports on the east coast as at fh? nplnitlnal - *u? , ..... in uio interior i n? quaury or the new wheat is stated to be inferior to the growth of i la*t yenr; but, judging by the weight per bushel, whiob i in allowed to average irom ?Olb to B41b . we are inclined i to think that there is not much reason for complaint Our letters irom Scotland and Ireland inform u* that the weather had been fully as favorable in thoa i countries as with us; and with the exception of potatoes? which, as already intimated, were believed to have been extensively attacked by tho disease of last year?the crops promised uncommonly well. A small parcel or two of new Irish wheat have already arrived at Liverpool. of fine quality and In good condition Though the arrivals of wheat coastwise into London have not been by any means large, only 3.I4M quarters having been received up to this (Saturday) evening, the supply has proved amply sufficient to satisfy the demand, aud business at Mark-lane bas remained in a very dull state. The few parcels exhibited on Wednesday by land-carriage samples from Kssex and Kent, were placed i with difficulty, and the turn was decidedly in favor of i the buyer On Kriday there was scarcely anythingfresh up but the millers were even less inclined to buy than earlier in the week; and factors being anxious to realise, i prions Is to is per quarter below the currency of Moni day last were in partial instances accepted We conti1 nue to reoeive liberal supplies of w beat from abroad, upwards of iei,(>78 quarters having again come to hand this week. The London warehouses, whioh a few months ago were almost empty, are now well stored; indeed, granary room is becoming scarce. The transactions in foreign wheat have throughout the week been on a restricted scale. the town millers having refused to purchase more than absolutely necessary for their immediate wants, and the country demand having rather fallen off than increased. The sales effeoted on Wednesday were at terms barely vqual to those previously obtained, and on Kriday a reduction of Is. per quarter was pretty generally acceded to; notwithstanding whioh the purchases were of quite a retail character. Towu-ulade flour has been very difficult of disposal, the comparative cheapness of Amerioan having greatly interfered with the sale of that of home manufacture; the top price has remained nominally unaltered, but ctuntry marks have been offered at irregular rates.

It Is Impossible to say nbat quantity i may still be on passage from the United States aud Canada to this country, but there onn be no doubt that the toue of t:ie recent ad rices from Great Britain will hare the effect of chocking further shipments. i The receipts of Knglish barley have been quite mode' rats; but more liberal supplies being expected so soon as harvest operations shall have been brought to a close, buyers have shown no anxiety to purchase. Tho few ' lots of new brought forward, huTR, however, commanded about the same terms as on Monday.

Very goud Riga have been sold ut 20s to 31s , and some of the out-of conditioned oargoes have been forced off at 17s to Iris to 18s per qr. In beans there has not been much passing, and prices have undergone no change requiring notice. Very few new peas have appeared" at market, and last Monday's advance has been maintained. The finer kinds of Indian corn, which have been held relatively high, have been wholly neglected, whilst the inferior sorts have been taken to a fair extent, at low prices, for pig feeding. | The reports from tbe northern countries of Europe continue to give very favorable estimates ofthe probable result of the harvest Letters from. Dantslo of the 21st inst. inform us thit the weather had been almost uninterruptedly fine, and that a considerable portion of the crops grown in the immediate neighborhood had already been secured; whilst the advices from Upper and Lower i'oland represented the harvest prospects as highly promining Under these circumstances and with continued dull accounts heuce, Imrdly anything had been done in the corn market. The very reduced state of stockthere being then only about H00 lasts in granary had o lused holders to exhibit considerable firmness, and the best high mixed qualities, weighing fi-J lbs, were then held at5fi* to 67s per quarter, and secondary descriptions from A'Js to 55s per quarter, free onboard.

Tht News from Europe?More Failure* In the Corn Trade. ily the arrival of tne steamship Britannia at Boston, from Liverpool,we have seven days later from Liverpool, anil five days later from London. The advices by this arrival are more favorable than those received by the Union, and more definite in relation to the financial and commercial movements of the United Kingdom. It is true there hnve been additions to the list of failures, and theamount of liabilities has reached a very large sum; but there appears to be a much more buoyant feeling among our merchants, in consequence of the removal of the doubt and uncertainty which had become so intense. The commercial classes are more disposed to look all things boldly in the face, than to remain in ignorsnce of the actual condition of their affairs. When we know the wont, we can govern ourselves accordingly. There is nothing more annoying to the mercantile clusses than to be in momentary expectation of losses, without anything definite as to the source from which they will come. We annex a list of failures in the principal cities of Europe, within the past two months. It is estimated that the liabilities of these firms amount to more than five millions pounds sterling.

We find nothing in the public accounts of the amount of the assets of these concerns, and nothing very definite as to the amount of liabilities. There are some conjectures relative to the probable dividends of W. R. Robinson & Co. and Alexander & Co. It is stated that the former will pay 12s. to 15s., and the latter 6s. to Hs. on the pound. We have our fears that most of these concerns will turn out no better. There is no doubt but that the losses by these houses will full heavily upon houses in this country ; but we trust, and are induced to believe, not to an extent sufficient to create many, if any, insolvencies. If the failures do not increase much?if the bulk of bankruptcy has taken place, we may not sufler so much us at first anticipated. Suppose an average dividend of 10s on the.pound is paid by each of the houses connected with this country, and the liabilities of these houses amount to J?8,000,001), there will be a deficiency of one and a half millions sterling, equal to seven and a half millions of dollars.? This amount distributed throughout this country, would not fall very heavily upon any section, and would not amount to the aggregate promt) on uie auipments 0! urcausiuna lor uie past year. Tlie acceptance of a large amount of exchange drawn upon Prime, Ward& Co. upon Overend, Gurney & Co., has relieved many holders of these bill*, and placed the drawers in a more favorable position. We have seen darker days than tli se, and look forward with a'great deal ol hope, believing that we shall come out of these difficulties much better than anticipated. The Foreign Mall*.

This letter is the only one received that mentions tkis intelligence, which we are sure will be gratify ing to the relatives and friends of the Doctor, and the dragoons, as well as to the whole of the American people. Thk Steam Ship Washington.?This splendid vessel now lying at her berth, No. 5 North River, wiil finish loading, it is expected, eith? r to-night or to-morrow morning, having, we believe, nearly her full complement of freight. The passenger list looks exceedingly well for this season of the year. She will sail positively on Thursday the 23d inst., at 12 o'clock. Military Movements.?The ship Sweden, with about one hundred United States troops^ bound to California, F'acific [Ocean, under the command of Lieut. Thomas E.

Bo??iv Tm ata>:?The liowery Theatre re-opened for the winter oawpaign last evening, with an excellent ( stock company, and bearing evidence that during tho recess the enterprising manager was not idle. From " turret to foundation stone" it has been repainted and redecorated, and considerable alterations have been made tothu scenery. The boxes are beautifully refitted and repeated with soft cus'iions, and an improvement made to the entrance to them, which was much needed. Instead of being connected with the lobby, and forming part of It. as formerly, canning the noise in the street to be heard and to disturb tin performances, it has been neatly partitioned from it. New chandeliers from top to bottom. Uavu been provided?oil cloth has been laid on the floors; nnd though last not least, a splendid drop curtain, axhlbitlng an exciting soene in Mexico, iu wliich the American arms successfully contended against tremendous odds, was presented to its patrons AltoI;ether. the Bowery presented a refreshing appearance ast evening, and we hope that the managur will meet the reward which his efforts to please so eminently deserve. We cannot think otherwise, for the enthusiasm which the performances were received with last evening, is an omenlhat Mr. Jackson will be amply repaid for all that he has expended. The pieceB performed were ' Brutus, or the Kail of Tarquin," and "Ilofer. the Tell of the Tyrol."' In the first mentioned piece, Mr. Clarke, Mr. Marshall, Mr. Bellamy, and several others appeared; aud were it not that each and all did so well, we would be tempted to remark on tba acting of Mr Msrshail. It was indeed capital, and highly creditable to him; so was Mr. < larke's personation of Titus. Mrs Jordan, Mrs. Sutherland, Miss Bell, Mrs. Broadly and Mrs. Phillips, performed their parts in an admirabln manner. We need hardly say that the house was as lull as the manager could desire The bill for this evening is a repetition of that of last night. We congratulate the management on the success he has met with, aud I -a IaaW nnnn thu onnlaiia.t 1?? * - ' nw ?v?? r, ?iul?a km3k rvuulug uk u guarantee that htg friends are determined to stand to him. Ch at h a m The at r k.?This place of amusement, which by the way is one of the best patronised and most attractive resorts in the city, was Oiled to overflowing last evening, so much .so, that we question if a dozen more persons could obtain even standing places, and we must say that the performances were in every way deserving of the compliment. They were, indeed, excellent, and gave general satisfaction, if loud applause is nny criterion. Mr. Rice will appear agaiu this evening in ' Jumbo Jum" and thu "Virginia Mumuiy,''and Mr. Neafle will perform William Tell, or the hero of Switzerland. Miss Brloraine will also perform a grand fancy dance.'s Opera Hor?k.?The Ravels, with the ballet of " Olselle,-' and the pantomime of " Oodenski," attracted last night a crowded house. It wan but j'.ist, for they gave their performance in the most elegant style. Madame Leon Javelli, and Qabriel (lavel danced and aoted with real talent. The bill of this evening is very attractive. indeed. The entertainment will begin with the Knglish farce " Boots at thu tiwan;" after which lh? Ravels will commence their exhibition, with a series Of " clasHlo grouping," in which they excel. These are decidedly their best tableaux. Madam Leon Javelli and Henry Wells will dance the Tareutula, and the Ravel family, including Uabriel Ravel, will exeoute their daring exploits on ttie carde tendue. The whole will conclude with the comic pantomime of ' Robert and Ilurtraud," otherwise Robert Macaire. in wlnoh Uabrielaud Antoine produce so uiucli mirth. This will undoubtedly attract all the amateurs of merriment to the Chambers' street theatre. We are requested to mention that, for the future, thu doors wilt open at hall-past seven precisely. Bowkrv Amphitheatre.?We spent a very pleasant hour or two at the bowery Amphitheatre last evening, and were much amused with the performances, which, we are free to say, were of a high order. The feats of horsemanship drew forth repeated burst* of applau.iei and were highly oreditable to the numerous performers. There was some disappointment caused by the non-appearance of Mr. Oosain, the celebrated clown; but we learn that his absence was occasioned by unavoidable causes, and that he is expected to arrive here every day. No more attractive place than the Uowery Amphitheatre can be found in New York, Yankee Hill and Or. Valentine will remain one week longer at Mechanic's Hail, II roadway, and will continue during that period to delight all who may choose to favor them with a call. These are, par excellence, the Yankees ol the American stage, and are more successful in delineating and caricaturing the peculiarities of the unsophisticated down-easter than any who have yet appeared. It was an excellent move for them to join forces. And the prqject tells advantageously for themselves, It would appear, from the numbers who attend their exhibitions. jftsiunor iblitz.?The oftener Slgnor Blitz, the celebrated magician appears in New York, the more be is liked and patronised. The feats of magic aud ventriloquism are really wonderful, and puzzle all who witness them. It is too often the case that persons pretending to be versed in the black art get up entertainments, and fail In giving what is expected from them. Not ho with Blitz lie fulfils what lie promises to the letter, and Is not unwilling to repeat experiments for the purpose of giving every one of his visiters an opportunity of detecting the manner in which he performs them ; but we need hardly say that be knows his art too well to allow them to do it He will hold forth again this evening at the Society Library. The Vlennoise children were still at Montreal at last dates. They took a benefit at the Theatre Iloyel on Saturday night. Mrs. Uuntwas to commence an engagement at St. Louis on the 13th Inst. Dan Marble is playing at Pittsburgh. Madame Bishop will appear before a New York audience again on Friday evening, when she will give a vocal and instrumental concert at the Broadway Tabernacle. She will be assisted by Bochsa, the harpist of the age. and instructor to Madame Bishop. City Intelligence. Tmk Wkathkr.? Yesterday was a dull and gloomy sort of day.

I Srnr.k.t, WasmiuiTon, Sept. 17, 1847. To the Adjutant (junkiul:? Sut.?According to the orders of Brigadier General Kearny. I have the honor to report myself to you in person, In n Hate of arrest. and to make the following re ijuests: - 1. A copy of the charges tiled against me by the aalJ General J. A copy of the order* under which the mild general brought back fiom < alilomla to the United Mates my 'elf audthe topographical party of which 1 formerly lied he command 3. A copy of the communication from Senator Bon,ou asking for my arrest and trial on the charges made in the newspapers ngainst me, and which application rom him 1 adopt and make my own. 4 That charges and specifications, In addition to thoee llled by General Kearuy, be made out In form against me, on all the newspaper publications which have eome, jr shall come to the knowledge of the office, and on all Hlier information, oral or written. 5. That I may nave a trial an soon as the witnesses now in the United States can be got to Washington ; I'or although th? testimony of the voice of California, through noun) of its wont respectable inhabitants is essential to me, and also that of ( ommodore Htockmu who lias not yet arrived from that province, yet i will not wish the delay of waiting lor these far-dixtaat witntsses, and will go into trial on the testimony now in the United States?part ol which is in the Statu of Missouri, and muy refjuire thirty days to get it to Washington. I, therefore, ask for trial at the end ol that time. These requests I have the houor to make, and hope they will he touud to be just, and will bit granted; I winli a full trial, auil a speedy one. Thu charges against me by Urigadier tieneral Kearny, and the subsidiary accusations made against me in newspapers, wh> n I was not in this country, impeach me in all the department* of my conduct (military, civil, political und mors!) while iu California, and, if true, would subject me to be rarbiered and shot under the rults and article* of war and to infamy in tho pul lie opinion. It in my intention to meet these charges and accusations iu all their extent ; und tor that purpose to ask a trial upon every point of allegation or insinuation gainst me. waiving nil objection* to lom-i and technicalities, and allowing the widest range to all possible t?*?timony These charge* unit accusations are so generaI and extensive a* to cover the whole field of my operations in < alilbrnU, both civil and military, from the beginning to the end of hostilities ; and in iny operation*, and those of which I was the subject or object, extend to almost every act (.r event which occurred in the country during the eventful period of those hostilities, the testimony of my trial will be the history of the conquest of California, and the exposition of the policy which hae heretofore been pursued there, and the elucidation of that which should be tollowcd hereafter. It will be tl'e means of giving valuable information to the government, which it might not otherwise by able to obtain, and thua enlighten it both with respect to the puot and the future. Being a military subordinate, I can make no report, not even ol my own operations, but mv trial may become a report, and bring to the knowledge of the government what it ought to kuow, not only with respect to the conduct of its officers, but al?o in regard to the policy obFerved, with regard to the three-fold popula tion. (Spanish-Americans, Anglo-Americans, and abor initial American*,) which that remote province contains. Viewed under these aspects of public Interest, my own personal concern in the trial already sufficiently grave ?acquires an additional and public importance , and for theso high objects, as well as to vindicate my own character from accusations both capital and Infamous, it Is my Intention to require and to promote the moat searching examination into every thing that has been done in that quarter. J, The public mind has become impressed with the be in?! 111itl kj,1"i iii!xct>u<]uni hum prevaiieu in < aiirornta ; and, Id fact, It would bo something rim in the history of remote conquest* and governments. where every potty commander might feel himself invested with proconsular authority, aud protected by distance from the supervision of hi* government, if nothing wrong or culpable ban been done by the public amenta of the l/nited States in that remote province The public believe it : and the charges tiled against me by Urlgadier General Kearny?the suhKidiaiy publication* made against ma whilst I wan cot in the country?my arreat on th* frontier, anil the premonitory rumor of that event?the manner of my being brought home for trial, not In Iron*, hn aonie newspapers suppose. but in chaina stronger than irou. and with circumstances of ostentatious and galling degradation- have all combined to present me ax the great malefactor and the sole o?e. Heretofore I have aaid nothing, and could have said nolbing, in my own defence. I was ignorant of all that wan going on against me; ignorant of thechargis sent from i Hli.' rnia; ignorant of tbe intended arrest, and of the subsidiary publication to prejudice the publio mind. What was published in the l uited States in my favor by my friends, was done upon their own view ol things here, and of which I Knew nothing it was only on my arrival at the I rentiers of the United States that 1 became acquainted with these things, which concerned dm ko nearly Drought home by General Kearny, and marched In his rear, I did not know of bin design'to arrest mo until the moment of it* execution at Fort Leavenworth. lie then informed me that, among the charge* which he had preferred, were mutiny, disobedience ol order*, assumption of power*. Ik.c.; and referred me to your ntlioe for particular*. Accordingly. I now apply for them, and ask for a full and speedy trial, not only on the charge* filed by the said Qeneral, but on all accusations contained in the publication against m< I (The private calamity which ha* this evening obtained for me permission from the department to visit South i Carolina, doe* not create any rea*on for postponement or delay of the trial, or in any way interfere with the necc*aary preliminaries Hoping, then, sir, that you will obtain and eommuuicate to ine an earl v decision of the proper authorities on there request* I remain V "ur most obd't servant.
