The Steamship Acadia. The following communication was received last evening by telegruph :? Boston, Friday, 8 P.M. Nothing of the Acadia yet ; weather now very olear ; wind N.E. We shall wait all night. SPEED. Partdea and Santa Anna. The farewell address of Santa Anna to the Mexican people, and the manifesto of Paredes, are extremely amusing and interesting produc- j tions. The Mexican leaders are well educated and polished men. They figure in ball rooms, in newspapers, and at foreign courts. They write with a great deal of eloquence and much unction. The Spanish language is favorable to j eloquence?but when we have said this much, we have raid all. In the real business of human life?in the deep diplomacy of great nations?in the great deeds of destiny, they are sadly deficient, and behind the age. Santa Anna's address is one of the most ludicrous productions we ever read. After the boasts which he has uttered, and the defeats he lias received, it is quite amusing, and almost irresistible, to see him beg for a certificate of character from General Taylor and General Scott, and looking for an endorsement of his patriotism and military reputation to those who have defeated him in every encounter. It is said he has escaped from Mexico. This is probable. We should not atjall . be wurprined to see nim in New York by the next | vessel from Havana; and if he were to come here, he would be worth, to Barnum, as a substi- J tute for Tom Thumb, at least ten thousand dollars. Barnum has already cleared $5,677 12i by ] hie wooden leg, and of course he would multi- j ply that sum by seven or nine times, if he had the whole person of the Mexican general. Of Paredea, who, by his -manifesto, assumes the vacant place of Santa Anna in the Mexican mind, we cannot speak much more favora- | bly. He was in Paris all of last winter.? He occupied a seat at the table d'hote. / the Hotel dsn ;Princes in Rue Richelieu?price five francs per day, wine included. We have frequently seen him in the Boulevards, and in the Champs-Elyttes; and on one occasion at the ] Tuiileries. He was presented to Queen Chris*init whnthen ncrunird the Hotel des Cmirrriles. in 'he Fauborg St. Germain ; and, according to s correct information, he was intriguing the whole of that winter and spring, for the purpose of \ getting Louis Philippe to send the Due de Montspensier to Mexico, backed by a French army r'"1 fleet, to place him there as Emperor ol the ' Iscv World. Such was the rumor among diplomatic circles in Paris, at the time. The manifesto ot Paredes assumes to give some color to ouch a suspicion. Whether the remains of the Mexican government now in existence, will encourage such an intrigue, seems very questionable. Whatever may be the result of the new efforts of Paredes on the existing government, we are persuaded our government will take care to prevent all attempts of European intrigue from succeeding in the establishment of a monarchy there. Sooner than such a result should take place, it would be much better to annex the whole of that republic to the United States, at i once. We shall watch with a good deal of interest the future movements of the chieftains of Mexi- j co, and the fragments of the government that i still exist. But this movement should not im- I pede or dist irb the purposes of our government, ' in that region. Let our conquests be held and i perfected according to the contingencies of the | iuture, and what is best for the interests of the | United States and the whole continent. Military De ie??A New Literature.? | The despatche n Mexico, detailing the bril- ! Imnt achievere ii he American army, constitute a new species of literature, which will give a character to the reading of the times, and overwhelm some of the trash wc are importing from Europe and reprinting here. Such trash, and similar productions originating upon this ide of theJAtlantic, will not sell any longer. The ege and the taste of the reading public are becoming practical, as well as chivalric and enthusiastic. The recent despatches from Mexico will probably be read, during the present week, by eight or ten millions of people. Founded upon these astonishing deeds, a new species of literature will be springing up, resulting from the letters, sketches, reminiscences and recollections of these events. For a long tune to come the press will groan under them, to the utter exclusion of European and similar trash. We are glad of it, for we were in want of something to give a more healthy aid manly tone to the public mind, and to restore a proper imtli* litorftlnm nf fh*? nnTinn ^ ?.V Ofiwiows or the Press respecting Mr. Ciay. ?The daily journals of this city have come out with their opinions upon Mr. City's resolutions and speech. The results are, those journals which hare an aggregate circulation of from eighty to a hundred thousand per day, eondemn Mr. Clay. Two journals, which have a circulation of from ten t? twelve thousand per day, approve his position; while one or two others, having a somewhat less circulation, are neutral. In the aggregate, the pnblic opinion in New York is in the proportion of 100 to 15 against Mr. Clay'a sentiments, as they are represented by the daily press here. The New England country journals are more favorable to Mr. ('lay. Behind the Age.?The greatest orators, statesmen, and candidates for the Presidency, who havcx been figuring before the world for the last twenty years, are getting verv rapidly behind the age. The war with Mexico, and the splendid triumps of our brave armies, have upset ninetenths of the great men of the last quarter of a century. _ American Contract with the British c,oveehment.?-The Ocean Steam Navigation Com* pauy of this city, we understand, has, through Mr. Mills, the agent,) secured a contract with the British I Government for the conveyance of the lloyal British Mail from Houthsmpton to Brem?a llw ftallua Opera. We are at length enabled to give tome information to the gay world and to philosophical society, disclosing the important movements in the Italian Opera, for the approaching season, in this remarkable city of New York. In the upper part of Broadway, around Union square, is congregated a great portion of the wealthy, the intelligent, the intellectual, the gay, the pious, the honest, and the best educated society of New York. Many of the private residences there are built in a style of elegance and splendor that would do honor to Hyde Park in London, or the fashionable fuubor^n in ParisThe churches and coach houses are constructed on the same principles of Gothic and Grecian taste. They have nearly finished a new Italian Opera House, of large dimensions, of elegant structure, which finishes and completes the fashionable region of New York. During the past few days various preliminary meetings have been held,and arrangements made, for the purpose of bringing forth this refined amusement in a manner never before attempted in this country. We have been furnished with several lists of parties connected with this movement, which are represented to us as correct, and we therefore give them:? rftoraiCTOM or the ope** Houta.

By this it will appear that between three and four hundred seats are taken, by subscribers, tor the season, already, but there are in addition, nearly one thousand seats that will still be vacant for the public at Urge?nearly all the pit, all the third tier,and some other portions. At one of those meetings a motion was made that all gentlemen visiting the opera should appear in full dresswhite kids, white vests, white neckcloths, dress coats and pumps; but it was not pressed, as it was supposed the ladies would regulate the dress of the gentlemen much better than auy public meeting could do it. The opening of the opera will be a great event in New York. All the milliners and dress makers in the city, are .preparing dresses for the ladies, and every gentleman pretending to taste and refinement, is brushing up his Italian, Ins music, and his reminiscences o( foreign travel. Thus we go, in war and relitemcnt. Thisis the fifth or sixth utteinpt that lias been mnde to establish the lialian opera in New York. It is now about twenty years since the (larcia troupe opened in the Park, and we havlTiad attempt after attempt since then, with varying suecfy. NVhf.t may be the mcrit? of the present company we know not; but they ahull hive l?ir trial. Mant of the names sre new t0 us,,and none are known beyond the region of mere provincial theatres in Italy. Whether the weal'.hy and fashionable society of New York have liberality enough to support an opera is questioned by many. It is very certain that unless a large portion of the floating population visit the opera every night, the subscriptions will be insufficient to pay the expenses of the troupe. The subscriptions for the season are only equal to three or four hundred dollars per night, and I the receipts must amount to six or eight hundred dollars, at least, to remunerate the services of those who require to be paid. Let us give them a fair trial. In almost every theatre in Europe, the Italian opera is aided by a ballet, except in Paris; but in that city there is a higher and more cultivated taste for music than in New York.? Can oi>era net alom? in New York without ballet f Let us try. Later kbom La Plate.?We have received by the way of Salem, the Buenos Ayrea Packet to the 12 h of September, and from Montevideo to the 24th. There was no n?ws of any interest.

We stated, a few days since, that a party of naval officers, under the command of Lieut. W. ! F. Lynch, would shortly sail from this port, in i the United States store ship Supply, ta the Mediterranean, (or the purpose of making an explo- , ration and survey ot the Dead Sea. We have ) since received the following interesting commu- j nication relative to the expedition:? 1 To the Edito* of thi Hkbald | In reference to the proposed survey of the Dead 8m, . several of the newspapers bare asked, " cm bono ?" As tbe first publle Intimation was givsn. without my { knowledge, through your columns, I ask permission to avail myself of the same medium to answer, briefly, to the point of abruptness, questions at once so natural and i so reasonable. ?> !. -h 1 ?? .....U -- 1 f\tbUVUgU 1UVDI. tOIUUkSUK WU p'?l Ul J < uu<||? . -v.u name in print, I take this step without an Instant'* hesitation, in justice to the enlightened statesman whose mind In an Instant grasped the importance of the question* at Issue, and foresaw the oredit to be acquired by bis country in their solution. For upwards of four thousand years, the Dead Sea baa laid in its deep and wonderous ohaem, a withering reoordoftbe visitation of God's wrath upon his sinful creatures. Itself onoe a fertile vale, teeming with population and redundant with the products of a fuvored oilmn, it now lies inert and sluggish, a mass ot dark and bitter waters, with no living thing upon its shore, or above, or beneath itssurfaoe Receiving at one extreme, the mighty volume of a swift and unfallicg river, and the numerous torrents that plunge into it through the olefta in its sides, it slowly rises and falls in its own solitary bed, with no visible outlet for Its tributary waters. Its lofty and fretted sides riven by earthquakes;?here blanohed by the rain, there blackened by the tempestrise perpendicularly fifteen hundred feet on one side, and two thousand feet on the other; while from the summit, the awe-struflk speotator beholds iloatitag upon its surfaoe huge masses uf bitumen, thrown up from its mysterious vortex. Mount Lebanon is 6.000 feet above tbe Mediterranean, and 10 300 above the Dead Sea, wnich is little more than one hundred miles distant from it. The " Corral" in the Island of .Madeira is wonderfUL, for it Is the bed of a crater nearly level with the ooean; but here is a sea. forty mile* distant from another sea, and upwards of thirteen hundred feet below it.

Whether or not this be tha crater of a submerged voloano, forming a subterraneous aqueduct with the ocean, who can tell ? This unfathomable spot, whether or not through an extinot volcano, ii connexion with the depression of surfaoe and tha height of a contiguous mountain, forms tha most extraordinary fault, or Assure, in the known world. One great object of investigation will be to ascertain whether this sea and its shores are of volcanic or nonvoloanio origin, and to refute tha position of infidel philosophers with regard to its formation. The elucidation of this subject is a desideratum to science, and would be mom gratifying to the whole Christian world. It is a mystery whleh has remained Impenetrable since the awful moment when the water* of that wondrous sea first rose above tha smouldering ruins or the vale of Siddim. The configuration of one-half of its euorea, and its Tory extent, are unknown. Its waters, of a petrifying quality, and limpid as a mountain stream, doubtless bold within their bosom, and holding, will reveal those ruins, upon the non-exi>tenoe of which the unbelievtr takes his incredulity. Strabo, Diodorus, Pliny and Josephus. among the ancients?and Maundrell, Pococke, ,\bbe Martins, <;huleau briand, La Martlne, Stephens and Robinson, umong the moderns, all differ aa to the extent, and many of the peculiarities of this sea. Considerable streams are said to empty into it, the very names of which are unknown. Some have heard the gambolings of fish upon its snrfaee, while others deny that any animated thing whatever oan exist within Its dense and bitter waters. Krmts, luscious to the eye, but of nauseous taste, and crumbling In the grasp, are said to be found upon Its snores Many travellers deny the existence of ail vegetation, and Chateaubriand asserts that he found branches of the tamarind tree strewn upon the beaoh I ts southern coast is said to consist of masses of solid salt; while, as far aa the eye can reash from its northern extreme, It beholds only the washed and barren blllaof Judeaon one side, and those of Arabia I'etrea on the other. All is vague, uncertain and mysterious. Are the questions answered ? Or, shall a small pecuniary consideration withhold a country suoh as this, towns of their former owners.

The orator deduced from these facta the evident and important conclusion that here we see established and proved to the world the ability of the people to sustain a ftte republican government. Mr. Butler then proceeded, acoording to the plan by him stated, to dlscnss and comment upon the history of the State governments ot New York, which he proposed for the subjeot ef his discourse.

It was contended on the part of the plaintiff that the room in question,! with several others, was rented by tbe plaintiff of the wife of the defendant's; and although it was never taken possession of until the day of trespass, still the possession was sufficient to maintain the action Ths defendant endeavored to show that the room was never rented by the defendant to the plaintiff, and if it sver was, it wss not for ths purpose to which the defendant had appropriated It.

Common Plaai?Not. 19.?Before Jndge llshoeffer.? C/rnin and Lackwood vi. Michael Itaactun ?This was an action to recover $2,060. inoludlng interest, being the lots on 200 shares of the Norwich and Worcester railroad stock. The plaintiffs alleged, that on the 24th of November, 1846, the defendant gave them a verbal order to purchas* 200 shares of the above mentioned stock, at 67H to 6H, but not to exceed this limit. The same day the defendant went to Boston, and on the 2ith. the Btock was purchased. The plaintiffs alleged that they notified the defendant by letter to Boston, that they had Eurohaied That after his return, they again notified im, and that he sent them word to bold on to it. In a few days after, the steamboat Atlantio, wbloh belonged to the Norwich and Worcester Railroad Company, was wreoked, and in oonsequenoe the stook w/nt down in the market, and Anally the defendant refused to take or have anything to do with it. On the 8th of December, tha plaintiffs again served a written notioe on defendant, to aoaept and pay for the stock, or else they would sell for his account, for what it would bring The defendant not having replied to the notioe, the stook was accordingly sold at a loss of about $1,000, for whioh sum and the interest the suit is brought. There are three defences setup. First?That defendant did not employ plaintiff* as brokers or agents; that it was a private bargain between them; and as the plaintiffs bad not the stook at the time of the bargain, they are preoluded by the statute from recovering the amount. Second?The statute of frauds, whioh declares that all contracts where the consideration is (60, and upwards, must be in writing, and that the contract in thisoase, not being in writing, it is contrary to the statute, and of course null andvoid. Third?Assuming the plaintiffs to be the agents of the defendant, they exceeded the limits of their authority, defendant having restricted them to 67X per share, and they having purchased some of th? shares as high us 68. The Ji'rut,in charging the jury said that it seemed these parties had dealings with each other prior to November, 1846; that on the 24th of that month there was an open contraot between them; that plaintiffs were to purchase stock for defendant ; that on the 26th the plaintiff* did purchase 200 shares of the Norwioh and Worcester Kail road stook, and made advances to the amount of $11,600 thereon; that after having laid out of their money until the 8th of December, they caused it to be sold by Mr. Bleecker, and after deducting the oharges for commissions, Interest and other expenses, there *m a balance of $1850 left, for whlob this suit Is brought The plaintiff* now Insist that you, gentlemen, are to render a verdlot in their toor for that amount. The first suggestion made on the part of the defenoe is this, that in point of faot, this transaction was not a brokerage oonoern; and to sustain this proposition the statute has oeen read to you now. It is true, where a party bargains to sell stock, to another, if the seller has not the stock on hand at the time, the law will not sustain the bargain; and it you can bring your minds to the conclusion that this was not a brokerage oonoern, but a mere private transaction between the parties; that they only agreed to sell it to tbe defendant, why then there is no proof that they bad it on band, for it appears they bought it next morning; then all bargain of that kind is void under the statute-, and you need not go further; tbe defendant would beantitled to your verdiot; but If you come to the oonolusion that the plaintiffs were employed by the defendant as bis agents, to purchase tbe stock, then your verdict should be for the plaintiffs. Aa to the statute of frauds, whioh is also set up as a defenoe, that statute declares that all contracts, where the consideration is $50 and over, must be in writing. I am bound to tell you, that where a plaintiff brings his notion, It is his duty to make out his case by legal evidenoe; and if he do not, he must fail Tbe plaintiffs say that, as brokers, they advanced their money for this stock on defeudant's nccount; and the question for you to determine, In this case, is, whether they did or not. You have beard tbe witness, who testiued bere before you, that delendant read to plaintiffs from a book, a memorandum, mad* by himself; showing that he directed tbem to purchase 200 shares of stooa lor him. If the defendant gave this direction to tbe plaintiff, there can be no doubt, If you are satisfied of that faot, that they acted in the transaction aa his brokers, they would be entitled to your Terdiot But tr you are satisfied on the first point. the defendant should hate your verdict. The next point in, did they, ihe plaintiffs, conform to the directions if the defendant? I'be law requires that tb<?y should strietly conform, and keep within the limits of their instructions. If the plaintiffs were instructed not to go beyond 67X,and they went to 58, the stook is their own, and they must keep it In this branoh of the dtfenoe, the great point before you is whether the evidence limited them to 61%, or bad they a discretion to go to 68? If we were to speculate on this matter, we might readily oome to the conclusion that one party might understand the instructions to be and the other to be 68. We know that in loo*?conversations, where parties are conversing about Oitures so closely connected as s7X and Sb, they might misunderstand each other, and that is the most charitable conclusion to put on it; but it is only from the evidence you must decide whether they oomplied with the instructions. If they did not, they m*ct bear the loss. Sealed verdiot to-morrow (this morning) For plaintiffs, Wigbtman 8t Clarke; i-r defendant, Mr. J. M. Smith.

By the disaster, both provisions and water were carried overhead, save that below, which It was impossible to get at. Thu* wo were without food or drink. Our only shelter was one berth, whioh letuainedof the oabln on deok. the hold being full of water. Tbree days after, Henry Hughe*, one ot the orew. went on deok and was never seen afterwards; he was probably washed overboard. On the 3rd lnatant we oaught water enough from rain to last twenty-lour hours. Krom that time to th<< 10th were totally without water or food, and b-gan to (eel m If death was very near us. The gale had lasted 8 days. We had robbing to Mt for ten, or to drink for six days. We then began to di?cuss the question of drawiDg lota to see who should suffer death to save the lives of the oth* rs It was agreed that we should use sticks We drew, and It fell to the let of an Irishman, named Charles'Brown, who bud a. 0 marked on bin arm. Hp was a Iniyo, a'nletio man, weighing about 176 or ISO, bad ahipped at SaT?nnnh, and wan unknown to thereat of tbn cr?w Ha alone wai armed with a fhealhe knife, which ho drew, and derlared be would plunge into lb* heartot the first one who apprca:hed t > oarry out the fatal chance. Upon this the captain retired to the cabin, myiug ha would have nothing more to do with the affair, tbinklnx that they ware all near their end At this moment a boy named Hughie Rose, of Bangor, Wulea, aged 19, spoke up and said that the youngcat fchould die flrnt; this free will offering wan about to b* accepted by Brown, as the captain with the boy went into the cabin. Captain Smith states tbat aa ho threw himself upon the berth his eye waa attracted to a handle Kicking up near, which he tbougbt bvlonged to an adze. He told the boy to fetch It, and it proved to be an adze. Thinking that something wrong was about to bu enacted on deck, he followed the boy when he returned, and saw the boy seized round tbe waiat by the now deaperate Brown, with tbe intention of making him the victim. At this moment the oaptain states that he feit gifted with extraordinary strength, stepped forward and drove the adze twice into the head of Brown, and he felt dead upon deck it is supposed by Captain Smith, from the fact that * S. D. waa marked upon tbe arm of Brown, that he shipped under a feigned name. He was about thirty-Are * years old. After he was dead, the oaptain bled and dressed him. His flesh was partly out Into thin strips and laid upon the deck to dry. But the orew did not hunger for fool, water being their chief derire His blood waa uaed for drink until the morning that they were taken off, wben about a pint remained, whioh bad turned black'. On the morning of the IStb, early, three vetaels hove in eight, one of which, tbe brig Tamptoo, Capt. Brown bound from New Haven to the West Indies, took off tb? three survivors, viz: Wm Smith, of Blddeford. Maine (he captain; Horace Smith, of do . the matf; and Hughio Hose, of Bangor, the boy preserved from death by the action ef the oaptain. The two former were transferred to tbe British schooner Splendid, and arrived at Phlla.. 1.1,. .. ?t.. t ...t <_ Ik. .. > ? I r. 1 u The boy was retained on board the Tauiploo. the captain promising to take care of bim. Captain Smith slates that if Brown bad submitted <tuietly to bis late, tliey would not, have bad the heart to have killed bim; but be did not think it ri jbt that the boy, after running one ohance for his life, should, after all, beoome the vloti ; and he appears to think tbat he was suddenly gifted with strength to save him. An idea may be formed of the nearness of death to this unfortunate crew from the fact that the captain's feet and nails both turned black, and bis nails have not as yet obtained their natural color. The blood of Brown probably saved their lives, as tbey subsisted on it two whole days. The Caroline is a total loss. She is insured at the Neptune office, in this city, for $6000.
