I? ' . I.nt:-luoknck prom th* British Wkst Indixs. ?Files of the Nassau, (N.P.) Guardian to the 3d instant, have come to hand. The weather was fine, business brisk, and things generally possessed a cheering and enlivI ening aspect. The principal inhabitants of the place were giving u great deal of their attention to the subject of agriculture, and effort* are to be made immediately to develop? the resources of the colony. In alluding to this matter, the Guardian says : Tbe artiol?? of export being, however, of a very perishable Dature, it would be necessary to adopt that mode of conveyance least likely to produce failure The suitable remedy Is suggested In the sh?|>e of a steamer, to run between the United St*ten and the Bermudas.? Now this uecessity is felt equally. If not In a neater ' degree, In these Ulamls, and should, therefore, be also ' provided tor The couvlctton of its necessity has. we < lire Klxd to si'O, Induced some Inquiries at New Ybrk. 1 prelualoary to any definite arrangements at the Bermuda* The result of these inquiries was not yet known. We are not put to the trouble ot sending to New York for information, sinoe a gentleman resident in that city ban kindly wr tten to say, that if the merchants here will subucrlbti JJOOOO stock in a private company formed for the establishment of a steamer between New York and litivsna, she will make this a rugular intermediate place ot Ktoppagi. Surely this Is an opportunity not to uo iicgiKoiea. nut to b? eagerly proflted by. We ha *e Demarart accounts to the 14th ult. A funeral meeting of the inhabitant! is to be called, for the purpose of preparing a petition to the British Parliament, setting forth their grievances. The Bugar bill in to be denounced, and the convention of delegates at St. Thomas to be 3&<iCtioued and supported. Delegates from the various) colonics are uguin to assemble at St. Thomas. The object of the Congress, says the Royal Qazettc:? Mu?t be to all self-evident. In the Jamaica circular, it Is stnted to bn " In order to resolve on such a comLinud movement In support of the declining Interest of these important colonies, as may oarry with it all the weight, nod impnrlanoe due to the property and Intelligence tf Her Majesty's subjects In the West Indies." This lunKUMge In comprehensive enough to imply any speeillo measures which may l>n deemed expedient for recaring our interests, and which may 1>? compatible with tbe weight whioh ' property" carries with it, and the demands on which " intelligence'' insists. The I; run ft ol'jeot of the Jamaica Chamber of Commerce, and of all strong minded and sensible ool?nlsts?all but the wavering, and the Insipid- is to organise on the neutral l< round of St Thomas a great West Indian confederacy, armed with full powers of deliberation, correspondent and resolution In all that may concern iur joint interests. We mistake the temper of the times and of the free trailers in Kurope, If work for mora than one session he ngt oarved out for the delegates, who, we suspsat, will Had it necessary to adjourn from time to time Better, Infinitely bettor, that no convention at til take place, than that it should bn dissolved after making some partial and uojustained demonstration, or one moment before full justice be granted to these injured colonies.

The same favorable change in the weather reported trom the other isl.Mids which have been suffering from the long dry weather, h .d taken place In that island, and also in ALtigua to the fame date.

Haller by Mrs. G. Jones. AU that we have be. fore said of the perfeotlon of Mr. Pitt'i performances, might bd repeated here ; be was again true to his part' the best ovldcnoe of which was the effect which was produced upon the audience. The exhibition of deep melancholy and misanthropy, the feeling of disgust which his bitter experiepoe had made the Stranger feel for mankind, yet acoompanled by generous impulses which only needed to bd awakened, to show forth in all their strength the keen sense ti the great wrong, whioh above ell others, weight d most heavily upon him?all that the play was designed to exhibit in the character was most beautifully brought out by him. Ills interview with Steinfort, (Dyott) Arst where he recounts his sad history since they hud parted, and afterwards the one in which bis friend end?arors to conciliate him to his wife, were both vuenes of rare merit; and the float one, when the husband and wife are brought together, had tbe effect to moiren nearly every eye in the bouse Mrs Jones was exceedingly good In her part of Mrs Haller, as was also Mrs Abt-ott in bersof Countess Wintersen. Mr Bass performed the part af Mr. Solomon to tbe perfect satisfaction of the entire audience. Mr* Knight made all that, could be made of the little part of Charlotte. At tbo clofte of the play Mr. Pitt and Mrs Jones were called txfore tbe curtain and roundly applauded. The aftirpiere wan " The Bottle." whieh out lectures all the lectu-ers which have yet raised their voioes in the good euuee < f temperanoe. To-night Shakspeare's tragedy of ' Oi.htllo" will be presented, Mr l'ltt playing the part I of th? jealous Moor; Mrs. Jones that of Deidemona, ml Mr Dvntt. nf fn-vn TK? af^rniMM will l>o ** A I Kin* In theDark." UowhRv Thkatkk.?There tru another very crowded house at the Bowery Theatre last evening, and th? pieces performed were Sheridan Knowles' play of the " Honehback," and the new national drama of the " Revolution, or, the Patriotn of 1776 " In the first mentioned piece, Mrs. Shaw, than whom no more popular or accomplished aotor.or actress, ever appeared on these boards, personated Julia. The more w? Me of thin great actress, the more we are inollned to rank her among tbe highest in the profession to which she belongs. It is but seldom that we see an actress excel In many characters We see occasionally one, whose personation ol a particular character cannot be surpassed; but w bo, wb?*u he or she at tempts another one, will make a comparative failure. Not so with Mrs. Shaw. She ?ppi<Hr* as Julia, (or instance, on one night, and on seethg ber, tbe spectator will imagine that she has devoted her past lite nDd experience to Its study and conception, to the exclusion of every thing els?. Again, she appears m Mm fuller, and the same conclusion is formed. Such U Mrs Sbaw She is perfect in every character in which she appears Of Mr. Marshall's Master Walter, laxt evening, we are induced to speak in the highest terms of praise. U was indeed a capital and truthful performance. The same may be said of Mr. Clarke's Clifford Mrs Khaw wili appear this evening as Ion, the cburaoter which we believe first brought her into notice, to Mr Marshall's Adrsstus. The drama of " Captain Kyd" will concfude the evening's amusements. Chatham Thrvtrk.?We attended this favorlteplace of amusement last evening, and found the house as full as was comfortable, and also found the audience in as good spirits as good entertainments could make them. Not being in time for th? first part of the evening's nmusemema, we can only apeaK or me living tableaux >>y i he model artiste whom the oftener we nee the more favorably ttarj grow upon us.

These artiata will thin evening represent the parting scene ao grxphiealiy dei * <! by Homer, between ileotor and Andromaohe?a au'juot which la moat beautifully adapted to thia kind of r> prraent*tion. In addition, however, there aru eight aceoea to be repreaented, Illustrating varioua Inoldeuta in ancient and mythological history The drama of the " Minute Guu at 9e?," will be the flrat piece performed.

I.?Trot i i.m;.?The announcement of three trotting matehea, of $600 each, drew out a very respectable number of the sporting fraternity to the above traok, yesterday afternoon, who made and imposing appearance with their faat naga and showy vehicles i ue ouauiy m me nay, loo, nad its Influence in inducing many to enjoy a ride on the inland?the reads in all direotions leing in oapital order or oomtort and pleasure. The flrit matoh on the programme of the days' iports, was "Time v$. Tandem," in which two well known nags were backed to trot one mile in 2:60, to have three trial*' and the dlatanoe to be accomplished, if at all, between the hours ef two and three o'olook. The baeker of ''Time" paid forfeit to "Tandem,'' which quickly settled that matter. The driver of the homes, Mr. Heed, however, to gratify a number of the speotetors who had never witnessed this novel style of driving, soientiflcsily^uidcd the nags onoe round the track. in 2.04; and from the easy manner in which It was performed, proved conclusively the sagacity of the time party in escaping, by paying forfeit, a sure defeat. It was generally understood that the nags? g. g. Orey Harry and br. m. Betsey Biker--can, at any moment, aooompiish a mile, in tandem, in The second match, mile heats, best three in Ave, between b w. American Doe and b. m Lady Clay, being ceiled cn, the owner of the latter would not let his mare start. Ue ptid forfeit to the owner i>fthe Doe, and tliUH deprived the friends of botb nag* of the pleasure of witnessing theirrcspeotlve capabilities. The competitors for the third and concluding match were then oallud for, and were promptly on the course. They were bl. h. Black Hawk and ch m Jenny Ltnd, the former to go to a wagon weighing 250 lb# , and the latter to a skeleton wagon weighing less than 100 lbs. This oontest was ai closely oont?st*d an affair, from beginning to end, as could be desired; and when the time of the horse, with the great weight be had to draw, his want of condition, and his inexperience on the traok, are taken into consideration, it will be acknowledged that his performances yesterday su j the most extraordinary ever recorded Black Hawk is the only horsuthat ever trotted a mile to a 2o0 lb. wagon in pubUe, in this or any other country, in 2:40. He Is niue years old, by Andrew Jackson, out of the famous old trotting mare Sally Miller, nod be was sold to a celebrated turfman, at thu ?xnir?Hnn ?f ih? * ? Ftnt JUut ?The betting wu about even previous to the start; but, if there were any odds, Clack Hawk bad tlm call. The start was a very evtn one,and tbe horses kept tbeir heads together through tbe draw-gate, and a part of the way round tbe upper turn. The mare then drew out from Blaok Hawk and led x length to the quarter pole, in 40 seconds. Down the back stretoh tbe horse challenged Jenny, closed with her went in front, aud passed the hslf-mile pole a length ahead of her, in 1:18 Hound the lower turn, the mare made a fine burst, and was at the tide of Black Hawk as he came on the home stretch. From the three-quarter pole to tbe soore the struggle for the lead wa* warmly contested, and the friends of each horse were oonfldent and boisterous that their respective favorite would win Jenny Lind, however, seemed to fall baek as she neared the stand, and Black Hawk worn the beat, by his own length only, in 3:40 Second Heat ?Betting was now entirely in favor of the horse, and very long odds were offered on him They got away very evenly, and kept closely together?notwithstanding that tne mare broke up-*-rouud the turn Black Hawk pasted tbe quarter a length in front of Jenny, in 11 seconds. Down the back stretoh the mare closed with him, and they pat-Bed the half mile pole side and side, in 1:19. Round the lower turn Jeuny clung to her ebony oompanion with the fondness of an amalgamations. and, notwithstanding his repeated exertions to oast her off, she kept her head to his shoulder until near the home stretch, where the horse broke up and fell off two cr tnres lengths The mare maintained the advantage, thus gained, and led to the soore about twenty yards in fropt of Black Hawk, in 2:38. Third Heut? Ita'ay Lind now became the favorite, and two, three, four, and even Ave to one were wagered on her during the interval between the heats. At tbe start the horse was about half a length in front, but the mare passed him on the turn, In doing which sne was forced off her t'uet. and broke up badly, falling off about thirt y yards. The horse passed the quarter pela In 40 seconds; but in going down the back stretoh be too broke up, giving the mare a ohance of olosing up a part of the gap At tbe halt mil* pole tbe horse was about two lengths iu front, In l.'JO Round the lower turn the mm irraduallv gained on the horse, and at the quarter pole she was up with him.

" Wednesday, Worember 17?0 p. M. There are tight times In Wall street. Money Is worth one and one and a half per oent per month for the best business paper in the city. The banks are oalling In their loans rapidly, and contracting in every possible way. The large shipment* of speole have alarmed the bank President*, and they are completely panic struck Amidst all the excitement growing oat of this state of thing*' fancy stocks stand pretty firm. At the first board today Illinois tt's, Farmers' Loan and Canton olosed at prices ourrent yesterday. Harlem advanced \ per oent, and Reading Mohawk fell off and Morris Canal At the second board Canton advanced p t cent, all others closing at prices ruling in the mcrniog. Specie is going forward very fast. The shipment* from this port and Boston, within the past seventeen dtys, have been about two millions of dollar*. It Is not yet knowa bow much the Washington will take, but the shipment* will probably be very targe. The demand for sterllcg exchange ha* been moderate for this packet, in consequence of the high rate* demanded for first rate bil'i and the waul of confidence In those offering There were tome bsnk bill* In the market to-day, for which ten per sent premium was asked.

We hare repeatedly remarked that the effect of the revulsion in Kngland would be felt In this country more through the influence upon prices for our great exporting staples, than in any other way. Cotton forms aucb an Important portion of our aggregate export*, that whatever effects the prlcei of the raw material in England, operate* directly against us, and the loss falls principally upon our shoulders. Tbe recent decline In pr.oei for cotton in this market is almost unprecedented; but prices do not rule so much below those current at tie corresponding period last year, as the great depreciation would Indioate. F'revlous'to this dealine, prices were very much inflated, and a speculative feeling existed to some extent, in consequence of the Impression prevailing that the consumption would go so far beyond the production that the stooks on band would be completely used up. In the midst of this speculative movement the explosion In England came upon us. The manufacturers ot England found themselves compelled to reduce their operations to the smallest limit, i The consuming classes of Great Britain are poor, and the consumption of manufactured goo4s has been very much reduced ? Tbe middling classes of Knelanrf ar? th? >?> .? ?u era of ootton good*, and their reaourcea have been no completely absorbed in the railway speculations Of the day. that the moat rigid eoonomy will have to he practised, to Rare themselves from utter bankruptcy The home market for British cotton goeds haa, therefore, been reduoed a large per cent, and the iorelgn market*, with the exception of the I'nlted Ht?tee, hare also fallen off largely. The consumption of the raw material has, consequently, been much leaa for same time paat, and the difficulties In the money market and the grand explosion In the credit system of England, hare all tended to depreciate the value of the artiole in all the markets of this conntry. Within the past three months the shipments of ootton have been unusually large, notwithstanding Ilia depreciation in prices. This Is attributed to the fact that previous to the termination of the last comoaeroUl year, when prloes ruled high,and It waa generally expected that the crop would be very short, large atooks accumulated In the hands of speculators In thla and other marketi, In anticipation of an advance in prloea. The commercial oriels in K.ngland revealed to them their poaltlon. and the only alternative left w#i to realise as early and as favorably as possible. To do this It hrrsme uec??i?rv to ship to the other side,

The highest point touched wai in August, just prevl ou* to the reoeipt of the disastrous Intelligence fron the other side.

The aggre gate value of the crop has been diminished sever < I mlllloni of dollars by this depreciation In prices, and It Is verj probable a further depreciation will be experienced b* fore the whole Is disposed of.

Should the polioy of further prosecuting the war, and collecting taxes and other means of revenue, prevail, It will be the 'riumpb of the administration.

The AJminiitrnlion. Already the eitj li In a ferment. Nothing Is talked of, thought of, or dreamed of, but politic*, and, ia polltins, nothing but the next Presidency. The polittolanj aru running mad lu the public streets, in mid-day, they assemble In knots of five or six, and talk and look like so many Catalines or tiuy Kawkeses. The noise and excitement Is already so Intense that It Is easy to foresee it will be Insupportable three weeks benoe. Mr. Clay's fentlinents, lately enunciated at Lexington, are generally regarded as not over wise. He had, however. but one of two courses to pursue?either to forestall the administration by pronouncing for the whole of , Mexloo, or to declare himself opposed to any acquisition 1 of territory. Any middle course would be infringing on somebedy else's' thunder,'' as Mr. Webster classically terms it To make an impression, Mr. ''lay was com>, pel led to be origins! >, but whatever may hare been Mr. CUy's former Judgment and shrewdness ss a politician-for, after all, strip the thing of its disguise, aud it Is as a politician ha spoke, and it Is as a politician every body else has spoken on the question, from the President in his message down i to Mr Wilmot in his abolition speeches, and Vlr. John Van Ouren In bis philippics?he hax not exhibited over muoh wisdom in the part he has chosen. Kor onoe, at least, he kas mistaken the character and the feelings of the people. Without any insane desire for Insane aggrandizement by the annihilation of Mexican sovereignty, without any mad thirst for empire and enlarged do * aln, there is yet in the hearts of the people a settled determination to have their rights respected. The administiatlon will neither adopt Mr Clay's policy, nor Mr. Calhoun's policy. The President, in his mtHHsge, will bring back the minds of the people to the principles enunciated in Ills last annual message?to the I principle upon which this war has been oonduoted, ' namely to secure an honorable peace; and In that word " honorable'' lies the whole subject of difference. The President will declare that this war should not be abandoned without Indemnity for our losses and expenses, and that without exacting such indemnity no peaoe we ; could make would be honorable to this country. Mr. | k lay. on the other hand, contends it would be quite aa i oouoraoie ana mora proniaoie 10 mane peace wuuout I any Indemnity. In thi* opinion the people will not agre* with him. i There is a pre determination on the part of the poll\ ticlans to make this Mexican question a subject of party strife. There ii n<> small danger that it will be decided solely with a view to the aggrandisement of this party t j leader or the extinguishment of that I trust it will M J kept open for decision by the people at the next PrwrtI 1 dentlal election. | ~.Mr. Clay has enunciated one gTiat truth'that the anj nexatlon of Texas was the primary eauae of the Mex| lean war. There i? no denying thin. Had Texas never been annexed, there would hare been no war. Tboa* j who predicted that annexation oould not produoe war, ; In vain attempt t? assail this position. But Mr. CUy I baa fallen Into, doubtless, an unintentional error In aay1 ing the army of the United States was ordered to ad ' ranee to the Klo Uritude before the result of Mr 811* I dell's mission was known He is reported to bare said, " At the very time wben our army was ordered to march I on Matamoras, to take possession of the disputed boundary, Mr. Hlidell was on bis way to the city of Mexico to enter into negotiations for the settlement of the mine disputed question Why not wait until Mr. Slldell's mission bad been fulfilled ?"? | On the l'itli of January, 1846, a letter was received by the Hccretsry of State, from Mr. Slldell, ensloslng the I decision of the council of government of Mixloo, ad vis I lug that he should mot be received. and oilier oommunlI cation*, rendering ll morally certain that our minister would not l>e received On the 13th of January, the day of the receipt of thin despatch from Mr Slidell. or' ders Issued from the War Deprrtment to (Jeneral Taylor to advance to the Rio (Jranda. Mr. Clay had, in ; this InHtanoe, fallen into au historical error, of which It would be dlsoourteou* to him to doubt he would rejoica to be disabused. Mr. ('lay'h sentiments on the Mexican question w*. ' materially damage his profpeets for the Presidency.
