It was announced a short time ago that the British Post Office Department contemplated to change the days o 1 the departure of the English mail steamers from Liverpool, from Saturday to "Wednesday. This arrangement may have commcuced with the Britannia, tne (-.nival of which is now daily expected. If so, she sailed on the 16.h inst., instead of the 12th, and will not, therefore, be due at Boston till Thursday or Friday next. If, however, the arrangement has not y?t been carried into eTeot, we may look for her news to-day. New* by Telegraph. The Southern line of telegraph is completed to Columbia, S C., from which poiut we labt evning n ceived some interesting intelligence. An arrival at New Orleans brings VeraCruz dates to the 16th inst. The treaty of peace, it is stated, has been ratified by the Mexican government, and, in ^onsequence, business was rapidly reviving. Sajita Anna had asked-for bis passports, in order to leave the country-^>ut it seemed to be the determination of the government to arrest and confine him, and thus avoid the contingency of any interruption to the progress of the pence projects, on his part. The news from Mexico by this arrival is otherwise interesting. It will be found under the telegraphic head. TU? Blood/ and Terrible Revolution In Venetuela, The startling intelligence which we published in yesterday's paper, communicating the horn- ; ble massacre committed in Venezuela, receiver fresh mterebt from the additional intelligence which we are able to publish this morniug?intelligence received from au eye witness, on the spot; one who kept a journal of the startling events of that peri< d of carnage, in ihe very midst of death and danger to himself. It will be recollected that we received some intimations, a few weeks ago, of a probable revolution in Venezuela ; but no one expected the movement to result in the bloody scenes which we now present to the public. We have also received a number ot private letters and statements from our corrts/oiidents in that republic, endt-u^or'ipg to explain the cuus* of this bloody revolution. . They give us interesting sketches of the authors of those deplorable events. It appearBthet this most extraordinary movement, leading to blood and carnage, has been produced by a species of Fourerite agitation in that republic, and by the *ff >rt* of communists, exciting tne populxr phrensy. nnd the popular pa?sions of the uneducated people, for en equ*l division of property Some years ago a popular ag.tutor by the nume of Guzman, introduced into the discussions of that day the right of the j people of Venezuela to en equal distribution ! and division of till Unds?to abolibh laud titles; and thisdoctriue was blended with all the affiliating doctrine which have been started in France and in this country by the Fourcnt-s, cotnuu lists, and a?soci4tionists. Thes? doc- ; trinec, it appears, have taken deep toot among the common people of Venezuela; th<; spirit ol aggraritijiism and the division of landed property have been increasing for several years pist, until it has ended in a horrible massacie in the House o( Representatives, and the murder of several members of Congress, as has been already recorded. Such tire the 'terrible conseouenca of these p'btit' rou? doctrines spreading among a compa- j rttively people. Ought not this greit I fact to be taken notice of in this country T The vessel which brought as .his important j intelligence, aud which arrived at Norfolk, also j brought despatches from the existing govern- | ment of Venezuela, or some leading distin- ' guislred persons in that republic, to Washington, j We h^ve every reason to believe that an ap- | plic-tion lias been made to tlie government at ; Waehirgton. lojf ihcir aid or interference in ! some way, to restore peace and prosperity to that unfortunate republic. What may be asked, or wtiat may be given, will appear in due time; but it ia curious to remark, that during the j lav few weeks, three of the South American ; \ r#pri! lic??Yucatan, Ontral America, and now 1 V?

D\NIELH MF.OIE. New York, Feb. 30,1848. JAMESQ. WILSON. This decides the bet between the Het aid and the Tribune, in favor of the former, and against the latter. Messrs. Greeley & McElrath will pleace, therefore, pay over to-day, to the two orphan asylums, fvo hundred dollars, and also pay ihe bills of Messrs. Wilson and Megie for the services performed by these gentlemen on this occasion. This decision, which has been uselessly and unnecessarily protracted ten or twelve days, is, uu wc?ci, unr ui uic ihubi rciiiaiAnuic 111 no terms, its disclosures, and its results, which has been given from the time of Knickerbocker to the present day. There is a contradiction and discrepancy, on itsvry face, which wc shall explain. It represents the aver?ge circulation of the Hirald nearly fifteen thousand under the real fact. The Sunday Herald is entirely excluded from this arrangement?an exclusion which is not warranted under any view of the case; out the decision, excluding this, was only consented to by our umpire in order to decide the bi t at once, and thus enable the poor orphans to realise the advantages of the bet before the winter hud departed. The following was the bet, as it was proposed by the Tribune:? * * 1 ?<?*< vu*i wiin w Uianv We will appoint one honorable and disinterested mm, and tli? Hm.ld rhtll anotb?r. the two having power, II they choose, to appoint a third, and all of ?hetn (ball have free access. at all timi-e. to the books. rffices, and prfM-ro"ms of the two establishments, until they are fully Kftti'fif d an to the actual circulation cf both journal* Tbey sh?U then draw up a statement of the average circulation of each paper, t'aiing h"w mm y cnjiits are ittued d?n/y. wn kly. and othrrwuc; and this stattmant shall b? published three times, both morning and evening, in the d?ily. and onoe each in er.sry other edi tionofthetwo pipers respectively, directly under the ditorifcl head; and if they repnit that the H-rald has more subscribers and buyers than the Tribunr?taking the aggregate circulation of each paper? wc will pay the expense of the scrutiny and give $100 to each of the two principal orphan asylums in our city; but if the Trihunr is proved to have the largest total circulation, then the H-rald shall pay tha expense, and give the $200 a* aforesaid. Here, then, we have the bet in the very words in which it was proposed by the Tribune; and although we publish no semi-weekly paper, and they do, our Sunday Herald was not counted, and this, too, in the face ?f the terms proposed?the average circulation of the retpective pupert, daily, weekly, and otherwiit. What doee "otherwise mean!" j.lie discrepancy 10 wnicti we auuae on tliface of this document, is that between the average circulation, as stated, of both journals, and the quantity of paper consumed by each. In the >ibove document, the quantity of paper consumed by each establishment, in the same space of time, is set down ae follows:? Rfvig. Reamt Daily Herald 975 Daily Tribune 573 Weekly 95* We.klv 131X Presidential 6 Semi-Weekly. ..... Id 1076K TiOX By this statement, which is admitted aad signed by both umpires, it appears that the Herald estnblialmient u-et?,in the same space of time, very nearly one half as much more white paper a* the Tribune usrt; and yet, in the statement of the circulation, the Herald is put down as having only about eight hundred larger average circulation than the Tribune. H?-re is the descrepancy in the statement of the circulation of the Herald, of which we complain, even in the lap ol victory. Our Sunday paier is entirely excluded, withou? any reason whatever. Now the Sunday Herald is a journal of as equal and independent circulation as any we issue from the Herald establishment. But our Sunday paper is not only excluded? the average of the Daily Herald for the same ime is underrated, as we can prove The real circulation of the Herald, to make it correspond with tli" quantity ot paper used, as appears by the above drcument, is as follows :? BFAL CIBCVLATION OF THE WE*' YOKE HKIIALD DtlH ilrrkli 17.400 8Linda/ Jhralu 13 500 30 900 Weekly Herald 11.455 Presidential Herald 7e0 43 135 We may also add, in addition to this, that the have reached during the last year, according to our books, which both of the umpir?3examined, stands us follow*:?

With these facts exhibiting our real business find circulation, it may be asked why the Tribune concern should have wished to conceal the actual circulation of the Herald, or why our umpire should have agreed to sign such a paper 1 This is easily answered. It sprung from the meanness and contemptible duplicity of the Tribune concern, and the liberality and generosity ?>f the Hirald. The moment the examination was begun, it was ascertained that the Herald would win the bet by a targe majority. All th<'ffirls of ihe Tribune were accordingly directed to the concealment of the large circulation of i the Herald, hy refusing to a^reetoany statement ! which exceeded theirs to any remarkably extent, ! iind to throw th" responsibility on us of defeating the decision of the bet. They reduced our daily circulation without any reason, and excluded our Sunday circulation; but yet had the i ' supreme folly and ignorance to include in the mutual slat'-iiient the ugtjregit" amount of white I>.ip?r used by both, which proves the fact we wish tn state, and shows up completely the dej ception and meanness on the other side. For the truth of liter* statements regarding I our business and circulation, any person of re: npectablo standing in New York, will, at any : time, be permitted to vi*ir our est ibliehment, . ud ?ti?(y himself of its correctness.

The first of these curious articles is taken from a weekly religious journal, published under the auspices of Bishop Hughes, in this city, supported by him, and generally understood *o be conducted by his very great talent and sublimegeuius. This article purports to be republished from i Halifax paper; hot we have the best reason for believing that it emanated trom the lofty mind of somo pious Giles Scroggins, who issues tome of the theological trash of the dirk ages, in the shape of letters, and endeavors to pass them oil' as sound divinity, and religious controversy, in the present enlightened period ot society. The language in which it is written, and the sentiments conveyed, do not aspire to much elegance or sublimity, either in conception or composition. In fact, they hardly reach the literary characteristics which distinguished a certain journal published in this city, called the Subterranean. There is something, however, in the singular vulgarity of this article, that would seem to imply a congeniality with the spirit of Giles Scroggins, in any part of the world. unly think ot a holy organ, 01 a holy tfisuop, 01 the holy Catholic church, charging Mr. Bennett with destroying or ruining " virtuous women!" This is hardly the language of a follower of the meek and lowly Jesus?not even ofthe successor of St. Peter, unless it was during that fit of courage that caused him to draw his sword. The other article on this subject, takes a different view of "Bennett an i the Herald," and is published in a Washington paper called the Whig, which seems to be conducted with a great deal of talent. The article will speak for itself, and requires no comment. These things, however, only show the singular sensation which has been produced in the civilized world?both in Europe and America?by "Bennett and the New Yurk HeraldOn one side, assailed m every possible way by bishops, priests, clergymen, lawyers, bankrupts, and all sorts of vagabonds; on the otner, sustained by a tew, but quiet, people, and by the public at large; the Herald, has, since its organization, risen from nothing, to a circulation of over fifty thousand?the greatest in the eld or new world ; and it seems to be increasing every day in prosperity, wealth, and power. ? This broad fact shows that the civilized world, in both America and Europe?whatever isolated and vindictive persons may say?know what is good in a newspaper, and will support it, in spite of all opposition, and all malevolence. The Opera, and Fashion.?The " grand gala night" on Saturday was a complete failure.? There were ouly about two hundred persons present?one half of them in the boxes, a few in the parquette, and not a dozen in the amphitheatre. The house looked beautiful anc^ melancholy, like a sweet young girl dressed out in the gayest style, but in the last stage of consumption. Benedetti and Truffi were splendid and beautiful, and satisfied the audience that they did their hftfit : hut what wns the use nl' ?in<rinir ?<-> mntv , ? o-"? ???rv benches 1 The whole of this miserable /allure has been caused by want of judgment in the committee who manage the performers?for in this business there are two or three wheels within wheels, 1tetore you get to the supreme power of the Opera. We told them at first bow it would be; but they would not believe us, and now they have the fact before them. We leave them, therefore, to themselves, aud wish them better luck in future. The " yraiid fancy ball" is a greater and betM^ idea than the 44 grand gala evening," and it will succeed. We shall support it in every possible way. In the meantime, the new opera of "Hemani" will be given to-night. It is a most beautiful aad splendid opera. We have heard it several times and we have no doubt, that after the artists shaM have perfected themselves in their rOlcs, it will have a run equal to that of "LucretiaBorgia," if not greater. To-night, the Opera will be filled, crowded, fashionable, beautiful, extatic and de- j lightful. We hope the managers, and all their j advisers, will take the musical lessons (only two cents a dose?dog-chesp) which we give them in good part, or they may have to go farther and fare far worse.

The daily overland Express package has been received, and brings dates from New Orleans to the 21st, Tampico to the 18th, and Vera Cruz to the 16th, the two last brought by the Euglish steamer, which arrived at Cat Island on the 20th instant. The steamer brought five passengers for Ha vana, live tor England, and ten tor JNew urleans, and had on board $100,000 in specie. The courier from the English legation arrived at Vera Cruz b* fore the steamer sailed, with dat?8 from the city ofMexico to the 18th. The AmtHcan Star of the 11th inst. contains the official announcement that the treaty of peace was ratifi d on the part of the Mexican Congress, by receiving the signature of Signor Rosea, Minister of Foreign Aff.iir9, on the 10th inst., which date it bears. A meeting of the Deputies and Senators who were in the city was held, but only twenty-four were present, and a majority of them were in favor of peace and tjie treaty. General Lane reached the capital safely on the 10th, from his excursion upon Orizaba, and without further adventure. Lieutenant Yaecin, of the Kentucky volunteers is dead. Lieutenant Clark, with his company, was at CuerunevaB8a on the 9th inst., and Gen. Alvarez was making great efforts to cut of his supplies. Lieut. Clark was taking every effort to thwart such plans, and had been, so far, successful. The Star, of the 12th, says that Santa Anna had asked for a passport to leave the republic, and that he rrcommends to his friends to yield up the contest with the United States, sue for peace, and establish a good government. Pena-y-Pena publishes a letter in which he states that the government of Queretaro, in conjunction with Gen. Scott, have resolved upon the imprisonment of Santa Anna, and thus remove the only obstacle whic;i exists against a speedy conclusion of peace. There was considerable animation exhibited at Queretaro. Business was faBt reviving under the general belief that peace was at hand, it not already concluded. The American Star of the 16th says the announcement had been officially made by the Minister of Foreign Relations, that the treaty had been signed a second time by Mr. Trist for the United States, and Siguor Cuevas for the Commissioners of the Mexican government. The Mexican papers confirm the articles of the treaty in the matter of the cession of all of New Mexico, Texas, and Upper California, on their part, and the payment of fifteen millions bonus, and five millions fur our citizens' claims against Mexico by the United States.

A few days previously, the House ot Assembly agreed to a memorial to the Queen on the depressed state of agriculture in tbe island ; and tbe same was placed in tbe handi of the Governor to be forwarded Immediately. Th" sum of ?jG00 had been granted for ednoational purposes, partly for the support of a normal school (for training teachers), and partly iu aid of such other schools as m?y require pecuniary help Governor | Grey, in his prorogation speech, adverted to a prospeo- j tive deficiency ot ruvenua to the amouat of ?16,000, as I appeared by the estimates of Ways and Means Barbados.?The affairs of the West India Bank still | constitute the theiae of public discussion in this laland. 1 A thorough investigation had taken place, tho result* ot j which are succinctly and pertinently stated in the fol- j lowing extract from the Birbniot ilrrcuty of January I 37 " Mlsm?n*g?ii,eut, nr.soonduot, end miseverything, | form the fearful list cf thu causes which have produced ' a ruined bank and a ruined class of tbe community It is now disolosad that shareholders were n'g;igent ot | their interests, and trusted to the directors in too ; much confidence ; that th? directory, for years past, have been culpable, and have nqt shown themselves j ?[uaiified lor the f I'* IWIIT* of their duties, with a j ew honorable eiceptlors amongst them ; it is now MwrdlM particular Individuals considered the funds ! of the bank accessible to them whenever and for what- ! aver purposes required; a d further, tbat lnexousable seoreoy, and the most unnecessary nervousness, con- j cerning such information as should have been imperatively called for by the shareholders, through the pro- 1 per channels, were damning to the prosperity of the in- l slitution; all tbis was k?pt incog, uotll the therehnld- ' rrs forced it before the light at their meeting on the 23th | instant.
