mm ? TH] Vol. XIH. No. U8S_Whole No. 4885. ADDITIONAL INTELLIGENCE RECEIVED BY THE CAMBRIA, AT BOSTON# The famous Rati I re of ContreriUi and C'huruhu-co, In an EnglUH point of view. (From th? I.ondom Tittle*, Sept. 30 ] H hail b??n anticipated that th<s acoounta from the United States end the seat of war in Mextoo, which hare Ju*t reanbed u? by the Caledonia steamer, would put an enl to th? l"n(t period of ruapenre and/perilous inaotlvity iu whlnh On. Scott'? army hu pasted several weeks, and would pr<>bnbly announce either the entry of that G-neral into th< Mexican capital, or the discomfiture of nis Fonnty forces. 'J be Intelligence, which will be found lti knottier column, bear* much more resemblance to the Utter tban to th? former of these alternatives Although the American Journils record another vietory, they acknowledge that the honors of the day were disputed with great resolution by the Mexican army. They publish a list of ofiloera killed and wounded, whloh shows the extreme severity of tho action; and above all, they announce an armistice proponed, not by the Mexioans, but by (.Sen Scott himself This last ol'cumstanoe demmstates that, although tho spirit and firmness of the little American army eventually prevailed over the numbers and the field fortifications of the en^my, they were not In a condition to take any political advnnt.iwe of the contest, though they remained masters of tho field. Indeed, considering tlielr feeble numbers, the immense difficulties of transport, and the iinperfeot organization of their suppll?s. whioh have prevailed throughout the war, it Is evident that C.000 mun Isolated In the heart of a hostile couutry. decimated by fatigue, fever, and actual fighting, and out off from reinforcements by the conditions ot t his arralatico. are muoh more likely to capitulate to the enemy they iiave Insulted and despised than to hoist th* Ameriian flag on the towers of the oity of Mextoo. Ths moral effect of a decisive action and a tremendous dM>st might, indeed, have paralyzed the Mexicans, and Induced thorn to accept the terms they had hitherto rejected; hut, if the prrticulars are to be believed which reach us through Amerlaan channels, the battles of Coo? treras and Cherubusco are more likely to raise the confidence of the Mexicans than to destroy all faith la their cause or their commanders. The Mexiuan Generals are siild to have taxen up a very strong position, on which they had concentrated a large amount of artillery, within sight of the capital. These batteries of 8t. Augustine and 8t Antonio ware served with great activity and effect, and their fire was especially directed against the position which was occupied by General Wortu and his corps. On the 10th of Augustan attack was made by the Americans on these points,which, as may he inferred trom our accounts, was altogether unsuccessful. The American field batteries ware goon silenced by the heavier guns of the enemy, and weobserved that the loss of officer* la the artillery corps was unusually great. Kor slxhoui-b this terrific cannonade lasted, and at the close of the day General Scott and General Twiggs retired, completely exhausted,not anticipating the great strength ui iu? wur&n ui cue uuwuiy. uio irwupa wvru uougaa u> bivuuao on a tempestuous night, whloh must ill have prepared them for a renewal of such a battle on the morrow. Oa the morrow, however, the itate of things seem* suddenly to hare changed. Karly la the morning of the 'iOth, the position of Valenola, at Contraras, had been attacked by General Smith with complete fuooess ; and upon the precipitate retreat ol the Mexioans irom this point, General Worth fell baok on San Antonio. A second most severe engagement took plwo, which lasted some hours, until the Mexican troops retired in disorder upon the oity, leaving their heavy guns and a large number of prisoners In the hands of the invading army. The foroes of the Mtxioans in these actions arc stated to have been at least three times as numerous as those of General Scott's army; and although defeated to a certain extent, it is probable that the Mexican generals have still a body of men under their command sufficient to repel any open attack on the city In fact, having arrived under the wall* of Mexloo by dint of extraordinary perseverance and hard lighting, it is by no means clear that General Scott is nearer the grand nbjeot ot his gallant efforts than when he started from Vera Cruz; whilst, on the other hand, it ia evident to the merest tyro in military affairs, that an army of <1.000 men, at such a distance from its base, and so Inadequately supportml from home, is in reality, in a position ot great peril. Conferences for the negotiation of peace have, it is s?id, been opened, the alternatfcvo being another batt.le of a still more perilous character than the last: for It must be bserved, that In Gen Scott's present position the least reverse must be annihilation. He has *hno!*tely no rntraat. We should, therefore, not be sur?>rlseii te learn that he is willing to oonolude a peaoe on rrmt by no means flattering to the vanity of the United States But the moment we arrive at this point we are met by various political considerations, peculiar to the Institutions of the United States, which reudsr the solution of the question extremely romplioated.? Mr Polk undertook this war on his own account, and it has proved to be the principal affair of his Presi uruoy i u? simoiiuaii ui miiiurT kafitniura ua lae SrHe of military success have Induo'ed the people of the sited tttatea to endorse bis bills and to recruit his armies; and we have accordingly seen the Cbief Maglstrine ut wntrt wae once tfie model of paclflo governments Indulging Uiuiself la tb? royal luxury of a bloody war All this may be ol soma temporary advantage to Mr Polk and hie adherents; but they must be well aware that advantages eo dearly bought by the nation will piove fatal to those who have speculated In them, unless the burdeus ot the war oan be terminated with this oampaWn, an.l unless this campaign can be dosed with sn amount of success sufficient to screen the enormous injuscioeof the invasion. In thepresent state of public opinion in ihe world, wr should have thought it ertraordinary 1/ the most absolute ?f European sovereigns had dar'd to embark in tuth a war; but that a man, temporanly invrttud with a limited power like that of the l'resi dtnt of the United States, should, by hit own will and jd'miure, have plunged hie country into sueh a series oj < mbm ran immti, is, without exception, the most extraordinary event which has ever occurred in the history of any modern republic The sequel will show whether the mere pres'igr of military achievements Is auflloient to overthrow all the prlnoiples on which the constitution of the United States is professed to be founded; and ven In this affair of the armistioe and the alleged > egmiation for peace wo shall be cnrious to learn bow far O n>ral Scott's oonduct will be approved and supported by his government, whioh no doubt anticipated a mora brilliant result from the march to Mexico.

The production of " Macbeth" at the former place on the 37th alt., strictly in accordance with the original text, and without the musio, created quits a sensation.

The Corn Trade or Europe. | Krom the Mark Lane Kxpreas, Oct. 4 ] The weather having been highly ausplolous for preparing the soil for the reception of the autumn orops, farmers have been busily engaged with outdoor work; and the supplies of greln brought forward at the leading markets In the agricultural districts hare, ooneequaatly. b??n small. Lew tflact has. '.hsrafort, b?cn pfc?u??4 on pritM ty th? duU teat of tbt iterate j 1 mmr*?*** vv y o r YORK, THURSDAY Ml from Mark Lane and other large continuing market* than might have been expected; atill the value of wheat ha* declined In all parts of the kingdom. Whether the downward movement will oontinue much longer may, however, be <jue*tioned, for we have now arrived at a period of the year when supplies usually fall off; and as the miller* and dealer* will *hortly be obliged to buy? their recent purchase* having been nearly consumed? we should hot be surprised to tee a rally; at the *ame time we do not calculate on any permanent improvement in the tone of the trade ao long a* the existing difficulties in monetary affair* oontinue. The absolute want of confidence, and the total Impossibility to obtain the ordinary taoilltiaa, must inevitably have the effect of checking business. No one has juitnow either ^the power or the inollnation to hold stook; the operation* are likely, therefore, to be on a scale in accordance with the Immediete requirement* of the parties buying We may, and probably *hall, have a period of comparative activity; but ?o soon a* purchaser* have secured sufficient to enable them to go on for a week or two, the demand will, in all probability, again sub*ide. At some of the principal provin rial markets, held toward the close or the week, u>ere were symptoms of an improvement in the demand, but previous to Wednesday rnuoh anxiety waa manifested to realise. At Liverpool, on Tuesday, wheat was pressingly offered; and the attendance of distant buyers being less numerous than on previous occasions, old foreign wheat was sold 6d to Ud. and new Irish 9d to Is per 70 lbs, cheaper than on that day ee'nnlght American flour was also obtainable at materially reduced rates, it being then difficult to exceed J (is Od per bbl. for the the best brandy of Western Canal. L.ter In the week rather more firmness was shown by holders, and the best qualities of old wheat, as well as prime sweet flour, maintained Tuesday's rates on Friday: New Irish wheat was. however, again cheaper. The advloes from the chief towns of Yorkshire state that the miller* had shown a decided unwilllngnrst te purchase wheat even at reduced terms, and neither at Hull nor at Leeds, was much business done on Tuesday At the former place a decline of 3s to 4s., and the latter full As. per qr. was submitted to without ftimnlatlng the demand. At some of the markets west and north-west of the metropolis, where the fall has been very rapid during the past fortnight, there has been something like a return of confidence, and the business done at liristei and Birmingham, on Thursday, was at prises not more than is to 2s per qr below those current on that day week The letters from Scotland and Ireland speak favorably of the weather, and inform ns that the little corn not previously secured had been mostly got in. With respect to the late crop of potatoes the reports are still conflicting; but as the yield of all kinds of grain has unquestionably been large this year all over the I'ntted Kingdera. a partial failure of the potatoes is not likely to be attended with the same hardships as last season Prices of corn. were, according to the latest accounts receding as wall In the Scotch km In the Irish market The arrivals of wheat coastwise into London have ( lightly increased, but tile quantity received during the week hail, nevertheless, been moderate, and since Monday last rery little has t> en shown at Mark lane by land carriage samples from the neighboring counties. Small, however, naa been the supply, it has provod amply Kuffloient to satisfy the demand ; and prices have not varied, 'lhe operations on Wednesday were on so restricted a scale as scarcely to warrant any alteration being made in quotations, but there can be no doubt that purchases might have been made oa somewhat easier terms than in the beginning of the week. Subsequently the demand rather increased, and on Friday the few runt fiesh up from Essex were taken off at rates precisely the same as those current on Monday The country demand fcr foreign wheat has greatly fallen off, and the inquiry on Dutoh and French account has wholly suV sided. Our own millers have meanwhile beceme more ar more oautioua in their operations, and the transactlo n have been on a comparatively retail scale sinoe Mond last. Holders have,however, been less pressing th? might under the circumstances ha?e been expecteu a renewed oountry demand being confidently relied on The trilling business done on Wednesday was on much the same terms as those at which sales had bean previously made, and even on Friday no quotable reduction was submitted to. We continue still to receive supplies from the eastward of (Jlbraltar, but the arrivals from the Baltic are fast decreasing, and what has oome to hand lately has been principally from St. Petersburg. The total quantity of foreign wheat received during the week ending this (Saturday) evening, has amount* ed to 33,433 quarters The sale for tlour has been excessively slow, and the uiillers have had to accept less money for secondary BOrta. Thfl Vm.lua nf AmHriran flour hiui * farther reduotion, and on Friday good brand* of western < *11*1 won- sold at Utta to *27r pur barrel. Th? finer kinds of Amwrloan flour are golug into consumption very rapid1); and as It Is not likely that any fresh arrivals of oonsequence will come to hand for some time, we oan hardly expect prioes to go much lower. The supply of English barley has been l?s* than the malster* bad calculated on; and as they hare generally oommenced working, what ha* ooin* forward has met a pretty ready *ale at full previous price* The whole of the fureign barley on the market i* of inferior quality, nn(7 nw fIbi ffliltA S4 haa h?u l?aen to a moderate extent at about former term). The arrival* of oatr, coastwise, have been very scanty, only 1,46!) qr*., (Including 93(1 qr*. from Scotland.) and 70 qrs of Irish have been rrceived. The smallnes* of the home supply has, howefur, been more than compensated by an arrival of 47,6'J9 qrs. from abroad; and the I upward tendency which prioes manifested last week ha* been cheoked. The dealers have throughout acted on the reserve, and the trade has been a* dull a* oan well be conoelved. There 1* at present a large quantity of Russian oats afloat in this port the Importer* of which are naturally anxious to sell, without Incurring landing expense*; and it is not Improbable that leiler* will have to |(tve way before they aucoeed in accomplishing this object. The tall sinoe Monday has not exceeded 6d to la per qr ; but, as before remarked, the dealer* have been extremely shy, under the Impression that they have only to hold off, to obtain a farther concession. Trices of Indian oorn, Indian corn meal, and rye flour, have been tolerably well supported The tone of the advices from the Battle has undergone no particular change; little or no business appear* to have been done in that quarter, the reports from all the prinoipal port* describing business a* having continued in an extremely languid atate. Our Dantlg letters are of the '24th of September; so very few transactions bad taken place In wheat, that quotations had become perfectly nominal.

The operation* in wheat had been on quite a retail scale, the prices asked (saj 61s per qr. for tolerably good quality) having completely checked the demand. From Stettin we have letters of the 27th September, from which we learn that the supplies of wheat from the growers had barely sufficed for the local demand, and ihat equal to 48s per quarter hud been paid for good qualities, l'eas bad been In great request, and had sold readily at about 3tls per quarter. An export demand lor this article waa calculated on, and an extra consumption, would, it was thought, be caused by the scarcity of potatoes. The reports from Hamburg of Tuesday are not of so lively a character as those of the preceding poet day, the demand tor wheat on Krenoh account having in the mean time fallen o.i. It will be remembered that equal to flits per quarter was paid for the best red upland on the 24th ult. at Hamburg, for shipment to Krance; but siuce the export inquiry had subsided, the same quality bad been sold at 66s per quarter free on board. For future shipment, very few bargains appear to have been clotted; the prioe* asked at outports had ranged from 47s to 60s per quarter, aooording to quality, time ol shipment. &c.

Koa thk Wkkk bndinu Oct. 1?The same circumstances. greatly egnrarated, which have bean pressing down our market for a long time paat, have brought about a ?.ill further decline in prloes during the present week. In the extreme depression existing this morning, Amerioan, of all dualities, mav h? u >.'<l lower, making a reduction In these kinds of 1 '?d to l?d. during the mouth of September. Manchester shares tn thin depression as much a* ourselves, the doubt* and suspicions attending every transaction of business oonnectod with the manufactured article, existing there ax much as with ua in our dealings with the raw produce In this state of things, It avail* but little to be advised from Amerlaa that they will have only a short orop of ootton to aend ua nest year Such statements are totally unavailing to give support to a market overlaid as ours is with money difficulties Nay. If these reports of short nrop should unfortunately be confirmed, whloh 1s greatly to be feared, It would ill the long run only add to the evil attending the trade and manufacture of our staple article We hardly need say. that all parties are doing as little, and keeping as much within compass as possible, until this terrible storm has blown over. A public sale of Sea Islands brought forward to-day. shows the prices of that kind as Id to'id. lower than the previous quotations. 800 Amerioan have been taken on speculation, and 3,020 Amerioan for export.
