THE WEEKLY HERALD. PZOTOKIA1 VZBW OF MOLINO DEL REY AND CHAPULTEPEC. I . At nine o clock this morning, the Weekly Herald for tbla week will be ready. It will include among the new* of the day, the Hon.

Single coploi, <*!? cent*. 7.aeh?ry Taylor. History is only human nature in a stats of chi VBtnlization. TheGreeks were lickle?the Romans ungrateful. Theniistocles, a wanderer at the court of Persia, was the victim of Athenian Oirracisn. Caius Marino, leaning over the mini of Cartliage, suffered banishment from the ungrateful Romans. The lapse of twenty or thirty centuries changes hut slightly she human h"art> congregated in masses, and forming a homi.g<'u<'ous people. The deeds of antiquity?the glory of the Grecian phulunx?the bravery of the Ionian battalion, have not only been reproduced this continent,during the last twenty months, hat the ficklcnaesofthe Grecians and the ingratitude of the Romans, are mixed up in the same ,.i.........r... . l. rcj^f'llu. i unl^um jroiaiiacu iui a iuuiic iiioumiuii 10 the existing attitude of the American people towards one of their most distinguished military ineu. We allude to Gen. Taylor. The fields of Palo Alto, Monterey, and above all, of Buena A'ista, creuted an enthusiasm in the American mind ?nd threw a halo around the American name that surprised and startled the world from a deep slumber of thirty years. In the first developemejit of that enthusiasm, the whole press and the whole people, numbering twenty-five millions of the latter and twenty hundred of the foimer, united in one burst of applause?"this in the man that will be our next President." "V^hat u change has come over the public mind in less than six months ! Hardly a tongue lisps the word Taylor?Rough and Ready is heard no more. The journal* which rv.ised his name are stealing it from their columns, like pickpockets ?those who huzzaed in the streets and in public places, " Old Rough and Ready," arc now silent; and, with their long tongues hanging out at one side of their shameless cheeks, are intriguing with the political cliijxus of*the day for other men and candidates. If the Greeks ware fickle, and the Romans ungrateful, is it not apparent that the American people are both tickle and ungrateful in one breath - as invinciblc and as brave as both those ancient people, and combining in their character tiie same meanness with the name extrftnrilinm-v traits of bravery, courage, invincibility, fickleness and ingratitude 1 As & people, we have at an earlier period of our history surpassed the Grecians and the llomanM in the rapidity of our conquests?in the brilliancy of our deeds, and in the terrible energy of our troops. Have we not also surpassed them in the ripeness, the richnes3, of our fickleness and ingratitude to ene of our principal chiefs, who accomplished uo much glory for our common country with bo little means ! Gen. Taylor's victories on the Rio Grande were the first to give a new feeling to the American people?to open a new future to the mind's eye, and to startle the world with a new developement of national power, lie organised the regulars the volunteers ?he taught them his patiencc and his courage? lie led them to the heights of Monterey, and to the terrific conflict on the field of Buena Vista, victorious and triumphant. Yet, just in the moment of victory?in mid-career of his glory?the government called ofr the troops whom he educated?collected the generals and the xoldiers whom he led to victory, and placed them under the command of another, but not a braver or a better man, and left the founder of our Mexican victories in idleness and sloth. Was not thin an instance of government ingratitude? And is not the coolness with which the name of General Taylor in now alluded to throughout the country u shameful a piece of national as the other was of government ingratitude? "Let Aristides be banished," said the peevish Athenian. ' Why?" asked the sage. "I hate to hear him con. tinually called " the Just." "Let General Taylor, Jet Old Itougli and Jteady be stripped of his troops, and be condemned to obscurity." "And whyl" asks the enquirer. "We, the politicians of the United State*?we, who endeavor to buy and sell presidents, no that we can enjoy the spoils?we, the politicians, hate the name of Gen. Taylor, for those very victories, for that very honesty, for] that quiet simplicity of character, which have given him a name and a popularity. We can't buy and sell him?we can't barter him?we can't make hini our tool. He is not our man; and, therefore, we must send him, like Themistocles, to wander among the deserts of the east, or banish him, like Marius, I to lean over the ruins of Carthage." I Such, in effect, seems to be the position of I affaire tn the existing sentiment of the American I people, at thin crisis of the Mexican question and I the next presidency. Originating in Kentucky, I we see one clique oT the politicians collecting I their strength, organizing their forces, secretly I issuing forth their circulars, and, with their canI didate on their shoulders, endeavoring to asI touish and convulse the whole country with his I merits, his capacity, and his great popularity.? A ad in this very effort, mean and sneaking a* it I is, they take no notice of General Taylor. His I merits are depreciated, his character overlooked, I mdall his war-worn services are cast aside as H vf no sort of estimation with that class of inen who want office, and who make presidents to H get spoils. No sooner has this movement extended to I other parts of the country, than the friends of an- ! other leader begin to stir themselves in a simi lar way, and make efforts to concentrate their forces and sentiment on the individual from whom they expect, also, the gilt* of office and some of the spoils. General t*cott, one of the most distinguished leaders of the day, has great rvnd overwhelming merit; but no one can dmy that be is indebted for oun hslf of his glory in Mixioo, to tbt effoils wi I'factal Taylor, teaching the troops under hie command to conquer and to meet ftie enemy without flinching.' Those troops that conquered at Vera Crui, at Cerro Gordo, at Mexico, are the legions that were taught by General Taylor?the same who vanquished at Palo Alto, at Monterey, aod at Buena Vista. Yat all these merits of (?en. Taylor go for nothing. What is the reason that the politicians of the day, and the political journals throughout the country?the first a class of rogues and cormorants, numbering about ten thousand, and the other some /ifieen hundred?what ia the reuson that at this important crisis in the settlement of the Mexican question, Gen. Taylor is abandoned ' bv all those who sang praises to his name, and expressed an attachment to hi* cause ? We tind it in the purity of tlen. Taylor's character, in the simplicity of hisconduct, inthe honesty of his sentiments, in the absence of that trick, trea. cliery and corruption which have hitherto characterised too .many of our great men, and even some of our Presidents. This clique and that clique write to the old hero of Buena Viata. endeavoring to secure him to their particular interests. He replies with the same simplicity? the same candor, which mark all his despatches on public affairs. Wnen he understands things. he states it?when he does not. or has not time to understand them, or is too much occupied, he states, also, the fact, and the truth, llis general replies were, that he has been so much engaged in the service of the country that he could not step aside to trouble himself with political matters. And is there no honesty in the American p?ople! Is there no gratitude among them! Are they to be only a re-production of Grecian fickleness and Roman ingratitude, amplified and enlarged, as they must be, by their greater power, and their greater numbers! It is a shame to the present age, and disgraceful to the people, and above all to the politicians, the manner in which Gen. Taylor is treated.? Is there no way of arousing the sentiments of the people! Is there no way of calling a great mass meeting in the Park, to create a reinvigoration of those patriotic sentiments which were started into existence by the great victories achieved by him in Mexico? Are there any men with moral courage, in New York, capable of reproving the miserable political clique$ of the day, and of coming forth and taking the responnihility, without being feed like lawyers, of de? " ? - - 'II .!.! - J 4. .L- -C daring mat tney wiil, wiwioui regaru 10 mc ciforts and wishes of miserable politicians, present Gen. Taylor for the next Presidency! We pause for a reply. Entkiu'Risk op inn New York Press?Great Southern Daily Express.?The New York daily press, of which the Jlerald is one of the mem* bers, lia.s made arrangements to run a daily line ot expresses between New Orleans and New York, extending also, sometimes, to Mexico and Havana. These expresses will be continued through the approaching winter, probably up to the period required to complete the telegraphic communications between the two great cities of the Union. This daily express line will be organized for the purpose of giving the intelligence from the .South and Mexico, the West Indies, and the Western Territories, one day, or even two* or three days, in advance^ of the Government maila, as they are now conducted by the< nresent Pnpl master tl Imc !>??> long ween by our contemporaries, that there was a necessity of some voluntary association ot' the prenfl of New York and the North, in union with the journals of New Orleans and the South, in order to obviate the blundering incapacity and ridiculous parsimony with which the Tost Office Department is conducted under its present regime. A remedy is now at hand. The importance of the Southern and Mexican news, during the approaching winter, is understood by every one connected with active life. A permanent peace with that country, or not, will depend upon the movements of the Mexican government and people. A knowledge ot these movements becomes, therefore, absolutely necessary to the government at Washington,, in order that it may be able to make calculations for the future, as well as to the mercantile interests of New York and the North, in order to avoid disastrous speculations in commerce. A few years ago, as will be recollected, we established a similar express in connection with an enterprising journal at New Orleans, and | upon several occasions the Herald has been the first to give the Southern news, as much as three days in advance of the public mails. The interest of the Southern news at that period was by no means equal to thnt which it has attained at the present clay. During that period of enterprise, which originated solely with us, and was paid for only by us, the Post Office Department endeavored to throw obstacles and difficulties in our way. It is, therefore, highly probable, judging from the past, that the present Postmaster General, who certainly is not blessed with a higher degree of liberality than his predecessors, will endeavor to prevent the success of this enterprise, in which New York and its daily press, as well as many other journals, aie interested. This anticipation is confirmed by the obstinate and self willed incapacity exhibited by the Department in breaking up the mail arrangements between Washington and Richmond. This rupture of the contracts entered into between the former Postmaster General and the company, on the line between Piichmond and Washington, will now, however, not have the effect of preventing flir rnnnnprrml nnnnlntinn nf fln? MnrtK from obtaining early intelligence from the .South. This enterprise, which we and some of our cotemporariea have organized, will be an effectual remedy to the obstinacy of the Postmaster General, and hisjincapacity in the management of the department. It is, however, highly probable that, in order, if possible, to throw our enterprise "into a position similarto the one which he himself now occupies, (ill sorts of sinister practices will be reported to, to prevent our surceas or impede our progress. We hope, however, that all persons on the mail lines, the post office routes, and railroads, between New York and New Orleans, will endeavor to aid and assist our express riders, and all the agents of the New York daily press, and the Northern press, associated with us. Our enterprise is one of great public utility ; the present is a time when information from the Houth and Mexico i^ nn important brunch o| business, and concerns all the interests of the country at large. Let them remember this, and help ux accordingly. Naval.?The IJ. S. store ship Supply, formerly the Crusader, sailed yesterday, under command of Lieut.

About ten or twelve respectable men, who, on a fair calculation, are worth $10?after paying their just debts?to form a committee of arrangements, in getting up a public meeting in favor of Italy.

P.?No speeches requiredsix briefless lawyers being already engaged, at $10 a head, to make the speeches?and no insult intended. Apply to Jack Straw, of somewhere. Opera and Fashion.?The opera at the Astor I theatre was not so crowded last night as on the opening evening. , In fact, there was a thin attendance. Th** opera of Krnani" itself, is only a second or third rate musical entertainment, and people are beginning to find out that the troupe is not first rate, though some of them may be tolerable in certain parts. The audience appears to be reduced to the regular subscribers, the diatauce from the business part of the city being too great tor ine uoating population to attend, and the subscribers, as yet, certainly do not amount to more than five hundred. Now, as this movement was considered highly important in the/ashionuble annals of New York, and as it was looked upon as the organization of the upper class of society, instead of there being ten thousand of this self ame upper class, it appears that when subscn[ bers were required to pay in advance, the number shrunk to five hundred ; the leaders of that five hundred being our highly respectable cotemporaries, James Watson Webb, Colonel of the Militia, and James Gordon Bennett, Adjutant General of the defunct Mormon Legion. In such a position of affairs our musical and critical editor is not willing to attend every night. The troupe is from fair to middling, and the opera of the same calibre; but it is repeated so often that it has lost all its novelty and al| its freshness. If things go on in this way, it seems we shall soon be ia the market with the offer of our box to the highest bidder, in the same way as a bear in the Harlem stock endeavours to sell out during a certain contingency of the market. In order that they may make a good appearance before the public.we understand that the managers, Sanquirico and Patti, have rescinded their order excluding the free list and members of the press, and that they deal about *? nl>al/i /vwao# IiK*i>nlitif nil AAm?ra V*?( week they are going to bring out a new opera, we hope with better success than that of Ernani. We shall endeavor then to see what is to be done. , Apropot?one ot the troupe is a celebrated mutttro from Milan, Signor Bonzanini, who is reported, on the best authority, to be one of the best teachers in Italy.

"Napoleon's Old Guard" followed. It is one of those tonching little pieces in which Mr. riacide is so happy. The old soldier's fidelity, his love for his Emperor, and his constanoy to the trust confided to him, were so beautifully portrayed by the actor, that all were charmed with the performance. The e^raragama of the "Happy Man" wm tbe concluding ptcoe of the evening. To-night "Rory O'More" la to b? ?p?in performed, together with the oomedietta of the "Omnibus," in which Mr. Collins will perform the part of Pat Ilooney, Mr. I'laoide personating Master Tom Dobbs. The petit comedy of "A Kiss in tbe Dark" will wind up the performances for the evening. bowtrt Tiikatsk.?This place of amusement was so much crowded last evening, that those who arrived after the rielngof the curtain, tried in vain to procure Mats. The attraction,chiefly,was the "'Stranger,"in which Mrr. Shaw acted the part of Mrs. Ilaller To speak In favorable terms of the manner in which she acquitted herself* would be like gilding rellned gold. The large attendance on the ooeasion, aud the>pplause with which she was greeted, are sufficient commentary. She will appear there this evening far tbe last time this season, in tbe character of Constanoe, in the " Love Cha-e;" "and as tbe performances will be for her benefit, we expect to see, If possible, a larger bouse than there was last evening. The musloal extravaganza, the "Lady of the Lions,'1 and tbe tragedy of " Douglxs," will also be performed this evening. We are informed that Mr. Marshall, who has become a great favorite at this establishment, will leave it soon to fulfil an engagement at Albany. He quits New York with tbe regrets of all who know him, and takes with him the reputation of being one of the most talented and sterling actors on the Amerioan stage.

It was alleged that the defendant went to May bee and teld him that he, defendant, wished to beoome his tenant, and that plaintiff was about to remove his furniture ; that he bed a cart at his door at the time, upon whiob he was in the act of loading it for the purpose of running away from bis creditois. It was further alleged that, In consequence of this f Under, a landlord's warrant was issued against plaintiff, under which bis goods were taken and his business broken up. by which be sustained great lose and damage ; to recover compensation for which, the present action Is brought. The defenoe was that the words spoken did not amount, prr it, to a slander, and that no special damage was proved ; second, that the slander, if H was one, did not originate with the defendant; that he had heard the circumstances from another person, against whom the plaintiff brought a similar sctlon for th* same alleged slander, and recovered damages, upon the trial of whloh the defendant was examined as n witness, and that defendant only mentidned the words casually, without intending to injure pMlntiff, and fcnd afterwards dealt with hlra ?nd given him credit.

It appear* that Mr. Woodruff placed the dog and ohaln Into the handa of a black man for sale, and aa he waa proceeding down Broadway, wal vet by Mr. Britton, who offera 1 ! him $10 for th? animal Thia waa refused, and then*- I f;ro pnaned on to Wall street, where he took up his stand, n ord?r to peddle off the dog to the highest bidder. He had been there hut a few minutes, when Mr. Britton spoke to him again, and said, "Come along with me; I've a customer for your dog." At this gr>oil news, tbe negro's eyes flashed like two lumps of whits chalk In a tar barrel, and he replied t; Yea, manna. I go wid yon;" conaequently he followed Mr. Britton to his residence in Dey street, when Mr Britton took the dog and chain from the negro, conveyed him down stairs, and shortly returned, giving the negro the chain, saying that the dog bfllongnd to him; consequently he should keep him. Thiaso alarmed poor " nig," that he posted off immediately to inform Mr. Woodruff who on hearing the negro's story, laid the case before the magistrate, which resulted in the arrest of Britton, together with the dog, who were both brought up to the police offloe, where, after a short hearing, Mr. Britton was permitted to go home, but poor bow-wow was locked up In a cell as a witness, and plaoed In charge of Mr. Snow, the property olerk. Bnt should tbe clerk omit to visit that cell for several days pending the hearing, the poor dog might bite his own head off in lieu of some other bone to pick, which would tend materially to depreciate the value of both claimants The oase^underwent a partial hearing yesterday, by counsel on both sides, who argued the matter extremely dogmatical, quoting Chltty, Blackstone, Revised Statutes, and all the other statutes of natural history touching on dogs, hogs, or any other living animal that travels around our streets, endeavor Ing to show conclusively that a dog Is aoknnwledged property.

When news is to be had, no expense and no obstacles seem to deter him, and he is almost always successful in his projects for securing it in advance of his contemporaries of the press. An instance has lately occurred which we deem worthy of note. On lat>t Saturday, it is known that Henry Clay was to deliver a speech at Lexington, which was anxiously looked for by the politicians of the country, as to contain the sentiments which were to be the watchwords of the whig party during the coming Presidential campaign. Bennett saw the chance of heading his contemporaries, and has improved it. The speech was delivered at Lexington on Saturday. Express riders were ready, and in le6s than five hootrs Bennett's report of the speech ?\ full one?was in Cincinnati. Notifications had been sent along the line of telegraph to "look out," and at f'?ur o'clock on Sunday morning the publisher of the Herald had the Hdtislaction ot receiving in New York, a copy of the speech, more perfect, in all probability, than any which at that hour existed, save in the possession of its author. The sp'fch was sent from Cincinnati to Pittsburgh. Here it was copied, acd a telegraphic connexion being made, it was hence sent to New York direct. This was done during a heavy rain, and while a thunder shower was passing over a portion of both the eastern and western lines. Could a better illustration be wished of the perfection of the telegraphic art, and the skill of the operators on the line 1 To Mr. Brooks, the superintendent at this office. especial credit is due for his energy and expertness in performing his share in the matter.? As we have before stated, the day was stormy, with high winds, and about mid-day, when, from the information received, the office was in expectation of receiving the commencement of the speech, to his dismay and disappointment, the Kastern Telegraph suddenly ceased working ? Being short of proper hands, Mr. Brooks himself mounted a horse and followed the line, through the pelting storm, until he found a.break, caused by the falling of a tree, beyond Turtle Creek, a distance of twenty-one miles. He finished mending it at dark, and then returned to the city, and in the temporary absence of other competent operators, received the speech and sent it to New \ ork, finishing it at 1 o'clock in the morning.? Mr. Bennett shouldcertainly send him the handsomest gold pencil which can be found in New York for this, as, but for him, his other arrangementa would have been useless. What a wonderful thing this Telegraph is, in 1 deed ! Hunk cl a long apeecn oeing delivered | in the heart of old Kentucky on one (lay, and i published inthe chief city of the Empire State on the next morning?the distance being ovei eleven hundred miles ! Forty ye-trs ago a month would have been considered a ijuick trip between the two points. Ah ! these little "clicks" of the TelegraphThough they breathe not * word, Their Toloti u? heard . At a distance no voloa could reaoh ; And swiftly as thought The word* are brought, And the lightning endowed with speech : Though mm roll between, And land* intervene. The absent are oloae at hand; The eye tvttmn to hear, And arACE disappear, And Time is eompellrd to stand. F. S. Since the above was in type, we have learned by Telegraph that the proprietor of the I Hcruld did not publish his synopsis of Mr. Clay'i I speech, until liiu regular edition of Menday i morning. This fact does not alter the position of the matter. Mr. Bennett deserves greal credii for his enterprise. Barcelona, (Venezuela) Oct. 18, 1817. The present Condition of the City?Great Flood and Disastrous Consequences. This American city .waa lounded by Sancho Angulo, in the year 1671, and has now abou 8,000 inhabitants; its former prosperity, indica ted by the decay of iti buildings, has greatlj diminished since the country has become a re public. The chiircn, me nnest in mm country is the only building of consequence in the city the convent walls si md us a monument oftht folly and delusion of pist days. This city stnnda on ilie higit bank of the river Ncveri. At two o'clock in the afternoon of the 12ih inst., it commenced r lining and continue! until dark; consequently moat ot the lukahitauti retired to rest at an early hour; at eleven tlie water hud begun to enter tlie houses situatec nearest the river; the alarm soon became gene ral, but the water rapidly rose, and by two 11 bad reached its height, at which hour very house in the ciiy whs in the midst of a' flood those most elevated are marked by the mud 13 water in th'irsalas at two feet; thus the whole citv was blloat, and no place to escjpe to, th( houses being (all but ten) only of on# story, anc without riny lolt-j to escape jo; this was not t simple rite ot the water, biu k furious running stream i>using through every btreft and ever) house; the water remained at its ureat-st heigh lour ure, from two to six in the morning, ant ut the expiration ol thirty hours, had entirelj left tlie Moors of the houses, leaving about twi inches of thick mud upon every floor, witl 1 lie ruin consequent upon such a calami ty.

We travelled most of the way I with tbr?? companies of the mounted regiment, H and attribute our safety through the Indian coun- fl try, to the fact thut th>* military were with us? I as from signs frequently seen, there is no doubt fl tlie Indians were constantly around, watching I for a favorable opportunity to attack ns, but we were always vigilant, and thus escapcd. I am 1 glad the government has sent a force to guard the 1 plaint. Every thing will depend upon the mate- 1 rial ?f which the command is composed. Little I need be e.\pBcied if it is made up of officers and men who sought the service because they had J nothing to do at home to keep them from starv- 1 ing. (Jod knows th??re are enough such in the service already. * * * * Every coffee house w in Santa Fe, and their name is legion, was pro- 1 vided with the various implements of gambling, y particularly the national game of"monte." In- { temperance and public disorder?the never fail- $ in? attendants of gaming?prevailed in the city. 1 i>y oraer ot tne commanding ollicer, gaming of nil kinds was prohibited. Coffee house keepers were forbidden to sell liquor to soldiers?fandangos were not allowed except on certain conditions and terms. A Provost Marshal was appointed to enforce these orders. As if by magic the whole condition of things was changed. All this htis been brought about by the energetic, and at the same time judicious, exertions of Colonel Easton, who has been industrious and indefatigable in the discharge of his various duties; at the same time 1ms kept himself aloof from the temptations which so easily beset every American who comes here?whatever be his rank or station. Thoroughly acquainted with the duties of his military profession, he has exhibited in his daily life and manners the example of a wellbred American gentleman?an example seldom seen here, and which has not been lost upon these people. All classes, Mexicans, and others, civil and military, are loud in their praise of him. I only speak the sentiments of every one here, when I say that no officer since General Kearny left enjoys so universally the good will and esteem of all classes as does Col. Easton at the present moment. Yet much which I know he contemplated doing towards redeeming,this city, is left undone since he was superseded in command?but during his brief career as commanding officer, he has done enough to secure for him a name which will be long remembered here with much honor. The 2>t. Louis bnttaPon is rapidly improving in drill and discipline?in this last respect it is excellent?while the drill is acknowledged to be superior to any i volunteer regiment wl" last year. * * The battalion is doing welt?as an evidence, there is none sick?that is dangerously?in the whole command. They occupy good quarters, barrack rooms once occupied by the Mexicans, which h ive since been repaired and altered, so that i they arc very convenient?with an excellent parade ground in front. The Adiut&nt, Lieut. 1 llolmes, is, next to Col. Easton, tne best officer t in the battalion, lie lias been most diligent in ' his application to his profession?and now acquits himself not only with credit te himself, but would honor the post of adjutant in any regular regiment. He is highly esteemed by every officer and soldier of the battalion, and by all who know him, as a good officer and unimpeach able gentleiiidU. 1 The Mexicans all seem quiet, and arc altendl ing to their regular business; yet many who ! pretend to know, say that all this quiet is but the calm which precedes the storm?that a general i insurrection is brewing, and may at any moment i break out. Others, again, who also pretend to understand the Mexicans here, say there is no danger to be apprehended. 1 am strongly inclined to the opinion that nothing aerious ia at hand. Among these people, there arc many who are always ready for a row?upon the slightest pretencc?but 1 believe the majority are alike indifferent whether the Great Mogul or Tamea K Polk rules over them, provided tney can sell their grapeB, peaches, corn and red peppers, and smoke their segars in peace. An express, consisting of a captain and lieutenant and fifteen men, started for Washington yesterday. Tne captain is bearer of despatches , irom head quarters here, sent by the commanding officer.

One fact willjsuffice: A private,whom ' 1 know, and believe to be n man of truth, told 1 1110 that nt one tune there was not an officer or non-commissioned offier of his company on duty: , ihat they used up their rations, and were obliged to send a private to the Colonel to know what to do?and it was some days and with great diffi> culty that they at last obtained subsistence ! * .*** + * Efforts have been made to have Uol.
