Foreign News. The American steamship Hermann is in her seventeenth day; the British steamer Cambria in her fourteenth. It is, however, stated in a private letter from Southampton that the Herman was not to leave until the 27th tilt. Revolution In American Politics. The political journals, tar and lieur, are beginning to discuss with a good deal of warmth, the approaching Presidential election. These journals are divided into two classes?democratic and whig. The oo inventions of these parties will soon meet?one in Baltimore, the other in Philadelphia ; but according to all appearances, the tendency of those discussions leads the mind to believe that a very remarkable revolution will take place in the future history of parties in this country. One of the principal elements in bringing about this revolution, may be found in the sudden existence oi a new party in New York, called the barnburners, originally set in motion by John Vun Buren, ' Churchill C. Cambrelleng, John Kathbun, Pres- i ton King, and several other distinguished leaders i of tha democratic Dartv of this State. At the last . Presidential election there was a sort of abolition party organized, which separated from the bosom of the whig party, and which gave a vote of sixty thousand to the abolition candidate of that day, and produced that amount of defection in ths whig ranks. That vote was the principal cause of the election of Mr. Polk. The disorganization of the whig party, growing out of the abolition discussion of that day, is about to receive a competitor in the organization of the barnburners of New York, who also profess a certain amount of abolition doctrines in reference merely to the new territory that may be incorporated with the Unitad States. The principle of the barnburners is, "fsm territory make free States," and in contradistinction to the institutions oi the South, wherever that free territory may be located. This principle has caused gTeat disturbance in the democratic party of New York, and in parts of other Northern States. They are now completely organised here, and will send their delegates to the Baltimore convention, seeking admission there. If they be refused admittance, there is every probability that they will organise as a separate party, issue an address to the people of the United States, and may likely nominate General Taylor as their candidate for the next Presidency. General Taylor is a southern man?a slaveholder?has given no opinion on the question at issue?but these are small matters to"6wallow among politicians?all of whom, of all parties, caring more for victory than honesty or consistency. If, therefore, the whig convention?as there are now some indications of their doing?take up General Taylor, his election would be almost certain; and his election, under such circumstances, woulil he a romuleti* rlmmlii tion and disorganization of both the old whig and democratic parties, and will give the ascendancy to the new party?the barnburners?which will thenceforth become one of the mightiest confederacies in the Northern States. It is now two years since it was first'stated and predicted in the New York Herald?before all other newspapers many months?that General Taylor, from his position, his character, his victories, and from various other causes, would most probably be the most formidable candidate for the next Presidency, and would most probably lead to a complete revolution of parties in the United States. The idea was taken up by the people, and made wonderful progress during the subsequent.yeur. When General Scott won his brilliant victories in Mexico, the cclat produced bv his campaign rather gave encouragement to the principal leaders of both parties to check the popular career of General Taylor towards the Piesidency. During the last six, nin?, or twelve months, every effort, we believe, has been made by the great mass of those leaders, both whig and democratic, to crowd General Taylor off the canvass, and prevent him from being the candidate of either party. Since the occurrence of the singular events that have recently taken place in Mexico, connected with the courts tnirtial, and the developements growing out of them, General Taylor's name and fortune have again risen. He i* now absolutely in the ascendant, and the position of parties is such that they depvid more on General Taylor's nam" and position than he does on any party?democrat, whig, abolition, anti-abolition, barnburner, hunker, or any thing else. Such, therefore, is the ex?ct position of things, Rt nr?'S'*nt. romiPPted with lll?? l>rnaiil.n?u in the United States. The chances are that we shall have an entire revolution in parties?th? creation of new parties?and the dissolution of the old whig and democratic factions, which have humbugged and cheated the country, on both sides, during the last fifteen or twenty years, us was the cate with General Jackson, who effected a new organization und revolution of pitrti^s by his election. Such, we believe, will be the consequence of General Taylor's position and growing popularity up to next November. Movements or the Generals.?The number of our military heroes is on the increase, and the nt. tention of the pubic is more ardently than ever fixed on their movements, especially since t!<e developements of the Court of Inquiry in Mexico. Another military hero has recently made his appearance here?one General Tom Thumb?who fights battles, and writes letters, as well as any of in? compeers; but who has not yet been courtmartiallcd. He has unsheathed his sword, and is otherwise preparing himself for a campaign, not against the Mexicans, nor the Indians, who aie mamacreing the whites in \ ucatan, but against his rival Tom Thumb, formerly of the American Museum, in respect to whom he says lie is much smaller, weighs less, sings better, is fonder of kissing the ladies, and, on the whole, is n much better general than his competitor. Although he has shown his warlike proj?ensitie? towards IJarnum's Tom Thumb, the new general is not a fighting general. lie leaves the fighting to lie done by tho?e ui .Mfxiru, nnu runirnia film-?"ii wiiri nrui? uu ?**lnbitintf t/eneral, rath'-r than a IhcIiIiiijz general, and proposes to exhibit hi-* dimensions in in - Minerva llootns in this ntv, and kiss the ruby lips of the fair of New York, from an r-irlv houriu tl?r? morning till late at night, one at a time.

We will explain in a few words. During the last few months the prices of cotton, corn and other staples in Europe, have been so low as in a great measure to diminish the exportation of those staples from tliis country. The banks and the speculators throughout the country, in order to ward off the effects of low prices, have been endeavoring to adopt measures to enable them to hold on to the crops beyond the period at which they were usually sold, in hopes of realizing higher prices at a future time. The banks, therefore, in connection with the speculators, have been making vast issues of paper money, far beyond the amount of State stocks or spccie on which these issues are made, to protect them in case of any sudden revulsion in the trading portions of the world. Some of the banks in the Southern and Western States, and also some in the western parts of the Northern States, have a most miserable amount of specie in their vaults, on which is based an extraordinary quantity of paper money and circulation. The relation between specie and paper is too distant in many of these banks. The movement, however, enables the speculators to keep up the price of flour, provisions, cotton, and various other articles?to hold them on hand in expectation of higher prices, and to prevent the export of those articles to other countries, to be sold at the natural prices which they will bring. This is the situation of things here. On the other side of the Atlantic, among our customers, the prospects of high prices are worse than they have been for twenty years past. The revolutions and changes going on in the old world will throw, and have thrown, every thing into confusion, diminished consumption, diminished prices, and every thing on which a healthy and rising trade depends. The prospects of any increase in prices of any of our staples, are not only, therefore, | bad, but are positively as gloomy as they have been in the last twenty years, or sineo the times of 183G and 7. A continuance of low prices, and a derangement of our foreign trade, will, therefore, gradually bring to a head and a crisis the extraordinary efforts made by the country banks in the o,..J i,? ? .1 : _r >. vuiu uuu f? CBi ?u up UIC |U UI UUI Oldpies. We would not, therefore, be surprised to see, in the course of a few months, a serious revulsion take place in our banking currcncy; and the symptoms are already beginning to show themselves in the weakness of the country banks, the failure of some, and the disproportion between ! specie and the issues of paper money. We would, therefore, advise the public to look at, and be careful of the currency of distant banking institutions. The banks of the large cities?New York, Philadelphia, and Baltimore?are in a tolerably healthy condition. So are those of Boston, and those of New England, in consequence of the system of circulation and redemption which prevails there, ' called the Suffolk system. But the banking currency of other parts, and of more distant regions, should be looked at very carefully, before it passes from hand to hand as value for goods. There are breakers ahead, and the sooner the people take care the better. The Wkst Indies.?Due reflection on the present and past condition of the West India islands, in connection with the recent revolutionary movements in France, and other European countries, induces us to think that matters will not remain long in those islands asthey are at present. Thechangc which appears to be going on there will be accele, rated by the decree of the provisional government | of France, abolishing slavery in the French islands; I r\r frmn tU<> Itma %?'Uon !?? ?? 4v? ttuiu ii?v_ mm. nutu iuu nti ui triuaui;ij*aiiuu shall have been carried into efiect, a new career opens upon them?impulses that have lain dormant for years will be aroused and brought into play, for good or for evil. The British islands, ever since the emancipation of the black races, have been in an unsettled condition. Their commerce and internal resources having been ruined by British legislation, and t^eir wealthy planters reduced from wealth and affluence to the verge of bankruptcy, the British West Indies are not now what they once were, and evident signs of a disposition to resist the imperial government of Great Britain are visible. Meetings are held, from time to time, at which sentiments are s|>oken, and resolutions passed, almost as violent und hostile towards the government of Downing street as those which have characterised Irelaud for some years. The flash which precedes the fire is visible, and what the result will be no one can divine; but it isclearthat they aspire to independence. The Spanish island of Cuba, the most valuable of the whole group, cannot long remain 111 her present situation. The mother country is on the verge ol revolution, symptoms of which reach us by every steamship. Should such an event take place, of which there seems to be every probability, the Cubans will, without much doubt, seek to throw off ihe Spanish yoke, and either become a republic, or what is more likely, seek to be annexed to the United States of America. Liberty of speech is much restricted there; but from the whispers that reach us from time to time, there can be little | doubt that a large portion of the people yearn toj wards this country. From all these Mima of the times, taken in ocn nection with revolutionary Europe, wo are inclined to the opinion that the West Indies arc on the eve of a radical and revolutionary change, the seeds of which were first sown by the British government in abolishing slavery there. State of Canada.?It was a fortunate thing for British domination in the Canadas, that the home ' novernment of those colonies was in possession of 'he popular party at the time when the intelligence I of the revolution in France, and the dethronement ' of Louis Philippe, was received there. Had it been otherwise?had the government party been in | the ascendancy?we think it highly probable that | another effort by the inhabitants to free themselves from British connection would have been made, j and, in all probability, with much better success than that which characterised the abortive attempt in 1837. As it is, however, public opinion is rapidly gaining strength in favor of separation, and the time when it will be reduced to practicc may not be very far off. The government has to yield almost every thing to the popular pally, and the cry I ol responsible government is heard from one end of the colonies to the other. This, however, wil' not satisfy the great mass of the people, who are i strongly tinged with democratic aentimenta, superinduced, no doubt, by the extraordinarily successful and brilliant career which has marked the United States since we established our inde|>endence. If such should be the case?if the Canadas should succeed in throwing ofTthe British yoke?it ! id nfii milik**iy inai mey win uesire if? lie incorporsit?'<l with the 1'nited States. This would lie a j subject of e xtreme difficulty, and would involve considerations r.f great weight and moment. It effected, it would increase tlie political i>ower of the Northern States very much, and that would not be agreeable to the South. The balance and equilibrium, however, might be restored by the annexation of Cuba, and, perhaps, of the llritish West Indies. The future is pregnant with changes, the signs of which are no plain at the present time, that h<- who runs may read. The influence of the I 'tiled States will not be confined to ICurope.

W Health of the Citv?The New Emioea-tt Law.?A very important and healthy meeting of citu?p? of the Fifth ward wa* held o? Thamday t vcaiag last, in the Laight street Methodist church, for the purpose of considering the conduct of the Goipovation, in u recent nu-aaure wluch they have adopted for the construction of a wharf, to be used for lauding emigrants during the ensuing summer, under a recent law of the Legislature. This meeting was called at short notice, and was composed of the most intelligent and respectable citizens of that ward. The conduct of the Corporation, in the location of an emigrant wharf in the Fifth ward, at the foot of Hubert street, was denounced in the severest terms, and measures were taken for the purpose of staying any further measures under the ordinance, until further uroceed ini^s are hud on the subject by the projier authorities. Wc understand that this movement of the Corporation, in locating the emigrant wharf at the foot of Hubert street, haB been adopted under a recent law of the State. It is, however, condemned in the most unqualified terms by the citizens of that ward, as its health is endangered by making Hubert street und that region the general nucleus for landing the crowds of emigrants, in every condition of health, during the ensuing summer. At the meeting in question, several highly respectable gentlemen of the Fifth ward took part in the proceedings, and gave direction to the public opinion. Among these we may name' j. W. Bleecker, F. Tillyou, and Henry Carey, Esquires, and several others in their train. On a resolution offered by Mr. Bleecker, that gentleman expressed his opinion that although the people of the Fifth ward were opposed to the location of the emigrant wharf at the foot of Hubert street, yet they have felt for the health of the city at large, as well as that of their own ward, and that it would be much better for the Coruoration to recon sider the project, and make a location for such purpose somewhere above Thirtieth street, or on some island in the harbor, instead of endangering the health of the city, by allowing emigrants to be landed in its most populous districts. These sentiments were received with cheers and applause, and Mr. Henry Carey followed them up by a most energetic and eloquent speech, depicting in glowing language the gross negligence and ignorance of the Corporation, in making such a location for such a purpose in any of the populous parts of the city, endangering, at the approaching unhealthy season, not only the health of the Fifth ward, but that of the whole city, and making them liable to all the chance9 of shif fever, yellow fever, and all the other fevers that life is liable to. We understand that Judge Edmonds, on the representation of the Fifth ward, h<?3 stayed the proceedings of the Corporation for a fortnight. This will give the people of the whole city time, in every ward, to prepare and mature a plan to prevent the introduction of any fatal disease during the approaching unhealthy season. Some place certainly could be selected north of Thirtieth street, on either the North or the East river, which mighl furnish a better location, so far ^s regards the preservation of the public health of New York, than that which has been made by the recent ordinance of the Corporation. This order, we understand, was one of the dirty deeds of the last Corporation before it went out of power and into infamy; and we trust the new Corporation will reverse it, and take such measures as will protect the general health of the city from any contact with disease, coming from any quarter, or originating in any conntry. T< the emigrantsfrom Europe, of all nations, the people of this city and of the whole country, extend the ham ol greeting and fellowship; but while they are wil ling to see emigration proceed, on proper principles mey aesire 10 preserve ine iieaitn ot tneir own citi zens, and of their own cities, from any fatal con> tact with contagious disorders, that may be engendered by the poverty or remissness of other lands, and which produce disease in emigrant ships. "We trust that the Corporation will take prope: measures in this matter at their very first meeting porting Intelligence. Usiox Coi'Rsc. L.

Theatrical and 9Ituleal? : Tin:atiiif:al Ciianiirs and Revolutions.?Great r | ohanges and revolutions have recently taken place In ' theatricals in this city. Niblo, a sort of Odillon Barrot in amusements, has taken the Astor I'laco theatre, ' ! which has become notorious for its failure to establish ] an aristocratic opera, and for it* *ucce*s In cheating t the coddsh aristocracy. editor* and print?ri included.

In the same proportion, will thu* be materially ' mended by the movement* now in progress. and society | will probably feel the benefit of it in the end The age i* mending. Another great revolution ap)>eari to have taken place In the lower part of the city. Hamblln, the hero of a thousand theatres, ha< absolutely and positively taken hold of the I'ark theatre, and got a lease of it from the proprietors in real writing. In black and white In red and blue, In green and yellow. Ilambliu was so en the other evening, standing la the Immediate vl laity of a couple of |Iimm ot hot whlakey toddy, with Blake the box-keapjr. in a place called Windust's. I Tho revolution In the Park, therefore. 1* decided, and , will ooBinMBc* In a few day*, whan that old houie will \ be turned lniide oat, outalde In, andtopsy turry 1 Simpson of oourse, h to bo retained m an nut-door pcnaioncr. fbr the valuable services heretofore rendered by him to the old oouccrn. which certainly havo been many and numerous for the lait forty years. The { I'ark being thus renovated, an it soon will bo, will imrno. diately open under these new auspices, and be ready for tragedy, opera, comedy, ballet, ini-lo drama, and everything else in that line which cau fill a house or U.mklU k.. lk? Bowery theatre, aud raised up tho dormant spirit of the legitimate drama, which had boen killed by the tomahawk and its savage partisans. He now comes to begin a new career, and to restore the glories of the stage on that old classic ground, which has witnessed, in past days, the triumphs of all the great actors who liavo appeared among us during tho last half century. Thus we go. energetically and dashing along, driving and going ahead so fast that tthe devil can't catch tho hindmost. Nlblo and Hamblin have beat the old fellow at last. Bowerv Theatre.?The sudden interruption of Mr. Murdoch's engagement, and the bad weather,and all circumstances taken together, had a bad effect on the numbers of the audience.at the Bowerv last night; in truth, it was quite a small one. "Macbeth" was the first piece, and was well performed by the company,Marshall taking the part of the ambitious Thaue. To-night "Julius Caesar," with a first rate caste, will bo played, and the whole resources of the theatre will be called on to make it go off well. Next Monday, we expect to see an old faanloaed erowd at the Bowery, as a dramatic version of James' beautiful novel of "Ehrensteln" will be brought forward with great splendor. We shall have more to say of it to-morrow. Chatham Theatre.?The continued success which attends this theatre, leaves us but little to say regarding it. During the week, the elegant spectacle of the Spirit of the Waters'' has been revived, and received with much applause. A number of amusing and laugh, able farces have also been played, and, of course, the great -'New Vork As It Is," which is unquestionably tho most successful pieco that has ever been produced in New York. From the crowded state of the house every evening, we presume It will run yet for many weeks. tuat u it unanirau i* not icinpieu to tiiii some 01 me other cities, where imineaiie offer* are made to him we understand. We hope though, Mose will not think of tearing us for a long time to como, he is too important a citizen to be away from town; and has thousand* of friends and admirer* among us. To-night the bill will consist of the following pieces:?' P. P.." The Spirit of the Water*,7' li New York A* It Ii,? and " Highway* and Byeways." Christy's Minstrels are doing finely, as they have crowded houses every evening, and are greeted with the same kind of hearty applause that they have been accustomed to. They perform twice to-day. vie : at 3 and 8 P. M. At each performance they give a full programme of their most favorite songs. Banvard'i Panorama.?We have heard some indistinot rumors about Banvard removing his famous panorama to Europe shortly. If this is so, it is a cogent reason for visiting it. as such another piece of painting will not soon be seen again in New York. Apart from the very complete and artlatlc style In which it ia done, it bears the pre$tige of Banvard's name, and additional interest is thrown around it, when the extraordinary difficulties, dangers, and privatlona under which it was painted are recollected. There are two exhibition of it to-day, vit.. at & and 7X P. M. We commend it especially to the attention of those strangers who are in town on the anniversary week. Mr. Drmpste*. who is so favorablv known among us as one of tho sweetest singers of the day, purposes to give one of his soirirs on Monday evening next at the Tabernacle. This gentleman's merits have been so fully recognized, that it is superfluous for us to say anything regarding him. more than that on Monday evening, he will introduce many of his most favorite songs, such as ' The Indian's Complaint,'' " John Anderson. my Jo," ' Lament of tho Emigrant," u Dying Child." kc., concluding with his celebrated '* May Queen." Melodeon.?When this house was first opened, the proprietor stated expressly, that he Intended It for the accommodation of the many who wished a place where they could take their families, and pass a pleasant ovenlng and hear good music. He has fully carried out this intention, as the Melodeon is one of the genteelest and most agreeable places of amusement in the city, and we are glad to hear that it Is as well patroniied as it is. Palmo'i OrcRA House.?'The illustrated pictures are still being exhibited at this house. The troupe of exhibitors number twenty-five persons. Castle Garden.?This beautiful location, surround] ed as it Is with enchanting scenery and refreshing air. will be opened on Sunday evening next, with a grand sacred concert. It is almost needless to say, that from the recent improvement* which have been made there, as to the comfort and pleasure of visiters, the garden will be filled with a large and respectable audience on to-morrow evening. Collins, who is now generally admitted to hold the first rank as an Irish comedian, takes his benefit at the Broadway theatre, this evening. The ) -ogramme ef entertainments is very attractive, consisting of tho drama of" Grandfather Whitehead.'' tbo original farce of ' The Wrong Passenger," and the drama of" Born to Good Luck." Added to these. Mr. C., who 1* acknowledged to bo an excellent vocalist, will sing the Widow Machree.'' Bold Soldier Boy." and several other Irish melodie*. If we may judge from his great success, while engaged at the Broadway theatre, he will have a house crammed in every department. We wish him every success. Major General Tom Thumb, a wonderfully minute specimen of the human form divine, will make his first bow to the New York public on Monday evening, at the Minerva Rooms. Several vocalists and performers accompany aiui. >uu iu.s exniumou win uv picasiug uuu varied. City InUUImnM. The Weather.?The weather yesterday morning gave promine of a beautiful day. the iky being clear, and the wind blowing from the west. About noon, howover, the wind changed to the south, and the ?ky was suddenly hid by heavy clouds, and at two o'clock, there was a slight shower. The sky again became partially clear, but about half-part fire o'clock the rain began to fall, and with every indication of a continued storm. Seniors, if mot Fatal Accident.?A boy named John Oakley was very severely injured yestorday afternoon, by accidentally falling through the hatching of the second floor of store No. 61 William street. He was taken to the City Hospital, when it was discovered that both his wrists were broken, his skull fractured, besides being internally injured. There is very little hope entertained for his recovery. The Park and Piblic Sqi'ares.?The Park, and public squares of the city, now present a most beautiful appearance. The trees have put on their foliage, and the carols of the feathered songsters may bo heard with the opening of the day. The long, rough grass has been mown in the Park, and the circles and triangles now present a beautiful appearance. The lighting of that beautiful promenade with gas will soon be completed, which will add greatly to its appearance. Washington Square, the largest in the city, though without the ornament of a fountain, is the handsomest in the city. The trees aro set with great regularity, and over the walks, the boughs, meeting, form a complete shade from one end of the square to the other. When the evenings Rre pleasant, this beautiful place is filled with ladies, who seek for a pleasant stroll in its beautiful shade. Tho grass plats arc beautifully arranged iu this delightful promenade, though the walks are sometimes in very poor condition, requiring something to make them hard, a very slight fall of rain making them quite muddy. Union Square, the smallest in the city, also presents a very neat appearance. Its size will not admit of such beauty and precision iu laying out as the other, but tho arrangements nro excellent. Tho whole square has a row of evergreen around it. inside of which are many handsome flowers. It Is a pleasant place to spend an hour in the evening, and its beauties are fully appreciated, hundreds of ladies assembling there every pleasant evening. Forim Drowned.?Coroner Walters was called to hold an inquest upon the body of au unknown man. apparently about 40 years old. who was found floating at the foot of Catherine street. The deceased was dressed in a blue roundabout jacket, black silk neckerchief. woollen Valencia vest, striped pantaloons, and shoes. The body is supposed to have been iu the water for about ten days.

Several speeches were made, and resolutions adopted, expressive of the high sense the meeting entertained of the virtues, both public and private, of the deceased.

Conviction of Btrfsttak Pttt?Peter Lewally, alias Julia Johnson, alias Beefsteak Pete, was next placed at the bar for trial on an indictment for grand larceny, in having, on the 6th of April last, abstracted from the pockets of Michael Bonney the sum of $12*2 In bank uotes. For the prosecution, the complainant testified that while passing through M'Dougal street on the evening in question, he was accosted by the prisoner, who was then dressed in female apparel, and standing in front of a house where there appeared to be some company and a pianoforte playing, and invited him to enter the basement; and the witness, conversing with the accused in the area, he abstracted the money from witness's pooket. Witness then seised the prisoner, and delivered him into the custody of an officer, and on taking him to the Jefferson Market Police Court, the prisoner was identified. The jury found tho prisoner guilty, and the Court sentenced him to bo imprisoned in the State Prison for the term of five years. Trial for an Attempt lo Commit Arson.?A young Irishman, by tho name of Patrick Clancy, was then called to trial on an indictment charging him with having, on the night of the 26th of December tot, set fire to the premises.
