Steamer California at Acapuleo. Acapulco, Mexico, Feb. 11, 1849. We arrived at thw place on the 8th last., being eight day* irom our watering place near Panama, we have on board three hundred and eighty passengers lor California, among whom are General Smith and suite, Governor of California, Judges, Postmasters, English Consuls, &c., <5rc. The health ol the passengers varies with the day. We have at times twenty or more on the sick list, sometimes not more than ten The Buffalo people stand the change of climate wonderfully?but one of them sick, (E. C Andrews,) he being confined to tiis bed witn the lecai fever ol Panama, resembling very much the fever and ague of our own latitude. I should judge there were about ten now suffering from the same disease on board. Mo deaths have occurred sinee leaving Pauama, yet it would not be at all surprising if some were to, before reachmg San Fraucisco, so many of us being crowded into such small space. The stories of the immense amount ol gold in California grow largri as we near this great deposite of the wealth ol the woild. Many ol the natives have left this place months since lor California, and perhaps an hundred are now waiting for passage hence to ojui ridiiciscu, auu n is nam mtu iiuuv inure arc waiting at every port on the coast. We (the favored ones) will be among the first, if not the first arrivals from the States. Many who left New Orleans months since, in the Falcon and other vessels, are yet at Panama, but few having been able to procure passage on board our steamer. This is a sm -.11 and lovely place. I think its harbor cunnot be equalled in the world; there are many larger, but for depth of water, and safety from winds, it cannot be equalled. A vessel drawing twelve feet water can anchor within filtven rods of the snore, m any ( art of the harbor, with peilrct safety. We have dates from San Francisco up to Christmas, and it is said nothing will be done at the miuea until about the 1st March, owing to the unnt-allhiness of the valley of Sacramento, on account of the prevailing rains We expect to reach San Francisco about the 25th inst. I presume but few of our countrymen will attempt the passage across the isthmus tor several months to come; the fact oi the prevalence of the cholera, together with ths mauy other usual and natural disadvantages ot crossing, will aeter them from it. That the choltra does exist, is a positive factx and tnat numbt rs of the natives are dying with it, is another positive fact, if the statements ot Docts. Haley, Jones, and Clemons, (who are with us,) can be relied upon, who state that very many ot the soldiers and citizens ot Cruces and Panama were daily dying ot this teariul epidemic?add to this my own knowledge of the symptoms ot this disease, and I am entirely satisfied that it does prevail, even to a fearful extent, although but tew of our own countrymen have as yet fallen victims to it. I would advise all persons who intend coming to California, before January next, to come across land?the v >yage around the Cape is it tedious (unless made in a steamer,) that it amouuts almost to an absurdity to attempt it?besides which, you have not that variety ot scenery and excitement of travelling throuuh (trainee and forests, over mountains and across valleys, that one would have in crossing from Foit Leavenworth to Fort Hall and the Sacramento The trii> could t>e performed in seventy days, at an expense tar below that of any other route?the route across the Isthmus has the advantage cf being made much more speedily, but with much more risk?individually, with my experience, I would come via the Isthmus, but at the same lime would advise my friends to take the land route. We touch at Mazatlan, San Diego, Monterey, lrom one of which places, should anytmng new occur woithy of note, 1 will write you. 1 will write from San Francisco and the valley of the Sacramento, or wherever 1 may find myself located, and give you the tacts of the case as I find them. Today, (being Sunday,) we are crowded with the seiiorasand sennrius of Acapulco, who visit us on board to view the "Vapor California;" some of thtm are guice pretty and interesting?but their tawny sk ins, coal black hair and eyes, cannot present that lovely appearance that never tails to attract tbe attention ot a real Yankee, when visited by the real white lady ot hts own country.?Buffalo Commercial uid valuer.

We receive report* Irom all aide* announcing a republican rising It appear*, however, that the democrats are dealr?u* of whiting for some important event which mav give them a chance of success, but, in order not to lose lime, they continue to orgauir/3 tneir measures What has just taken place at Beaang-in is an evident proof ol it. The political refugees were not well agreed, and, moreover, they were without the means of existence. They had come to a resolution to disperse, bat M. Hetnzen hastened to the spot to dissuade them Iroin so doing. He succeeded by holding out a ho|>e that a movement would soon take place. Accounts from HwitzerIsnd announce a movement for the 2d March ; but the news ta scarcely more probable than ia the account of a great popular meeting, which ta, it is said, to take place at Morgaotheim, the frontier town ol Wunernbiirg, in orde r to march on to Slutgard. The central government ol Frankfort, will, Crhaps, decide on sending fresh troops to Manim and Heidelburg.

The table given below showa the political atate of Canada. 23 constituencies have returned liberal membeia to the preaeat PiirliHineat. The aggregate number ol their inhabitants is 488,929 The remaining 18 constituencies have returned 19 tor? membeis?while their aggregate population is only 238,668. It has been often asserted that the mind of Upper Canada is almost equally divided; but these figures show the very contrary. Two to one of the inhabitants have returned liberal members. The average number represented by each member is 17,217 The average number represented by each reform member is 22,016?while the average number represented *>y each tory member is 12,660. Eight constituencies?Hnmil'on, Prescott, Kingston, London, Niagara, Brockville, Busself and Cornwall, contain a population of 40,239, and return 8 members to Parliament, while MuL dleeex and Waterloo have each a population larger than all the eight. lower canada. Accoiding to the estimate of the population for 184ft? each of the 42 members represents 18,282. Of these, 36 members have been returned on the liberal, and 7 ob the tory interest. The liberals represent a population of 885,288? and the tory only 73,058. Total liberal constituencies. Upper Canada 483 013 Do. do.

At the head of the constituencies stands the Canadian Middlesex, [not unworthy the name] repretentrd by Mr. Notmun?with its 41,963?although Montreal is more populous, it has twe members. At the tail stands Col. Gugy, the censor general of the press, who represents the weighty constituency of Sherbreoke, with its population of 887! It is well that Canada has supplied this gentleman with nothing but a rotten borough, or what might he not have done in his wrath against the press. How grave must be his feelings when he rwes, and reflects that the old ftarum of Canada he represents, is a sixteen hundred and eighty-a?cond part of Canada, and that it would take twenty Sherbrookes to make up an average constituency in population. It Col. Gugy had a Canadian Yorkshire at his back, like Mr. Notman, or a Waterloo, like Mr. Furgusaon, nothing would stand before him. The Colonels of the House of Assembly seem its greatest annoyances?mercy it is that there are not many of them.

New York, Maroh 22,1840. Ma. Editor? In your impression of 21st inst., you have an artiele purporting to give aa aooouut of an outrageous tiansaoifon by the Portuguese authorities at Mozambique. Without pretending, in the absenoe of further information, to Impugn the statement of Capt. Russell, of the American brig ' Magouu," I oan safely say, tbat many pretended outrages have turned out no outrage at all, and that the masters of vessels often get Into difficulties from their own unlawful sets, or from Ignorance. In the first place, the port of Vlotembtque alone, and no other of the Portuguese possessions sn the eastern coast of Afrioa, is open to foreign commerce; then, if you are acquainted with Ibe kind of trade irencrallv carried on in Amarlaan vessels between Brasll end Africa, the lawful eetsure of one or more of eueh vessels would not be surprising. However, it la not my purpose to dlseus* the merlta of the ease, and oniy auk yourself and readers net entirely to rely upon au ex parte deelaratlen, to oondrmn the proceedings of distant foreign aulhoritrlea.

On the oroes-examlnatlon, Mr 8tuart Id that be oould not swear that the prosecuting wit nee* had ?a'd that the aoensed would (tab him, nor eenld be swear that be bad not said so. The prosecuting witness at one time said that tbe accused was the man. and at another, tbat be was not the man Thomas Smith was the next witness. He stated tbat be saw Cornell at No. 470 Fear! street, on the night of tbe alleged robbery; witness was standing outside tbe door, talking to a friend on private bust- , nets, when Cornell oame up; that was at twenty-five 1 minutes past nine o'clock: Cornell remained with . witness lor fliteen minutes; was sure that it was for so 1 long a period; witness and bis friend went away together. and tbe former believed tbat Cornell bad been left there; It was then near 10 o'olook; Cornell had a blaek hot and a blaok or dark frook ooat on; and wore a ' gnattee" and a moustache, which were very like bis; tbey were not heavy; Cornell bad no whiskers. _ - Ills last place of work was New Orleans; bad lefttbeieon tbe evening before Christmas last, and arrived here in tbe latter part of January; had not bad any w?rk sinus tbat time; he was not ?mplnyed now in any shape or torm; he was not certain as ta the time be saw Cornell on tbe night in question; be oould only guess it, he went to New Orleans abont tbe lOtbof October. In a Boston ship called tbe Mary Anne; he could not tell tbe captain's name; bs worked there abont eight weeks. On the dtreot examination be raid he was not certain tbat It was ou tbs lktb of October he sailed for New Orleans. Martha Cornell, tbs mother of tbs aooused, stated tbat her husband kept a seaman's boarding house, at tbe eorner or William and Water streets, she saw the aooused on tbe evening of the alleged robbery, at tbe oorner or Roosevelt and Chatham streets; it was then between 7 and 8 o'clock; be bad a dark ooat. dark pantaloons, and a black bat en; had never known him to wear a straw bat; witness bad no doubt whatever of bis having been attired, on the evening in question, In tbe wny ebe bad described. A colored man named Peters was next examined.? He stated tbat be is a barber; be knows the aooused; be need to visit bis (witness's) establishment; bad seen him tbree or four days before his arrest, and bad been in tbe habit of seeing him more or lees every day; tbe aceused wore a "goatee" and a mustaohe, bat no whlsk??s. Tbe Assistant Distbict Attorney then read tho statement of tbe aooused, which oontraillcted tbe testimony of tbe witnesses called on his behalf, in some material points. One contradiction was, tbat tbe au oused bad sworn tbat on the night in question be was In the Paik and lu Pearl street, from dark till 10 o'clock; and in reply to another question, be said be wee there from 9 till 11 o'olook, in oempeny witb person named Ttaomae Smith, and another named William Cordelleu. Tble being the eaae for the pioeeoutlon The accnivd'e oonnMl then rone and addressed the jury in a very eloquent etraln, and at great length. He contended that tbie wee not a caae of highway robbery, beeaute there bad not been any violence or patting in leer until after the property had been taken, and he earneatly requested that they would bear In mind tbe important qaeetien, the pivot upon whloh tbe whole eaae turned, whether the violenee had or had not pieoeded the taking of tbe property. if it waa alter, that did not oonstitute the offenoe oharged In tbe indictment The mere enatehing. or grabbing at theaaieb, waa not an offenoe that would render the perron accused of it liable to a conviotion for robbery ii the tret degree. The evtdenoe waa indisputable as te tbe vlolenoe having taken place after the taking of tbe property The Teamed counsel read from the rtatuie that part of it whloh bore upon the oa?e, from which it appeared that the taking of property against the will, Is not all that it requires; there must be violenoe against the person, and witboat that violence. there Is no offence within the meaning of tbe said statute, and that, therefore, this charge of robbery In the first degree, must ef necessity, tail. He defied any jury, no matter hew ntueh disposed It might be to col viot?and liodforbid that be should suppose,ter one u oment that they were not actuated by the nloest and ke. nest sense of justice?to find theaeoused guilty of the offenoe with which he stood obarged, in the free of tbe statute iroai which he had quoted. Taking into their serious oonstdsrstioa all the etidenre and tbe law of the oa*s, they oould not righteously or legally eoovlot the aocused He would ask them whether. In the exerelse ef their good sense, they oould venture to piooouuoe averdiot of gutrty in a case whioh was suiroonded by so mueh doubt? He was sure ibey would not; but on the contrary, at ter having duly weighed tbe evidence, tbe whole of the facts and tbe law, were so clear, so explicit, and so Imperative upon tbe question as to the okaraoter of the offence thai they would not rend a fellow creature to a living tomb, which wou d be tbe effrot ef a verdict of guilty. Tbe learned gentleman having dissected the evidence for lbs proeeeution with the greeted minuteness, and havleg with Impassioned earoeatoesi dwelt npon tbe responsible duty which they were called upon 10 perform aaia that If they had tbe least doubt, they should cling to It; It was the property of the so cured, the law said It was; they should give him the benefit of It. In all its plenitud# That they Would do so, he (the learned gentleman) had the fullest oond denes Tbe AisiSTaitT Distbict Attokwet replied In a brief but elcqueut speech. He said he quite agreed with the learned gentleman- tbe aaoured'a oounsal?that a verdiet ol guilty would be of the most serious consequences to tbe aroused; bnt the jury would not f irget that tbey had asoiemu duty to olacharga to the public.

Extraordinary Balloon Excursion?Yesterday afternoon a great crowd of people assembled near the comer ofPoydras and St. Charted streets, to witness the feats ol M. Vt tor Verdalle, who had announced that he would ascend witn hid balluon at 4 o'clock, not. as is customary, in a car, | but attached to the balloon by a rope, hn " last to I he ven, head to earth," and so ascending would perform some most wonderful serial teats. We did not see his exhibition previous to and immediately after stalling, but we sa v him when at his Sreatett height, ana witnessed his extraordinary eclension. The afternoon was exceedingly favorable for the daring aeronaut; bat an accidhat occurred as he started which placed bim in great danger, as the eveut showed. It scums that when (11 was ready for the ascent, and the word wan given to let go, a rent ol some four feet was made in the balloon by getting loul of a post. The gas, of course, commenced escauing, ths balloon ni the same time risinir maieaticallv. and WrrUlu through file novel performances, to the great delight of the assembled multitude. The balloon did not nee to a very great height, but went ofl stesdily in a northern direction, the gas all the time making its escape. As it pasted over Canal street, we had a fine view, and continued watching the progress of the aerial voyager uatil the grand catastrophe occurred. The first thing we uotieed preparatory to the sudden decline and fall of Verdalle and his balloon was the canting over of the latter. Before this, however, it seems that Verdalle was aware of hia danger, and had prepared to meet it. The next thing we saw (immediately after the canting) was a great explosion of the remaining gas, the sudden loss by the balloon ot its , swelling outline, and its instantaneous tall fiorn a height of several hundred feet W> expected to hear nothing e'se than that M Victor Verdalie was "among the things that were;" that m descending from his high position he was dashed to pieoes Such appeared to lie the opinion ot every ?oe ? such was the prevailing report last evening Hut the opinion and the report were both incorrrst. ML. Victor Verdalie still lives, and, we understand, showed himself in some of our public places last evening, to convince the slieptical. It iwisii Chat on being precipitated to the earth, he landed in a nsrden in Moreaa street, Third Municipality, and, wonderful to r? late, escaped without sustaining the slightest injury The only way to account for this miraculous escape is by the supposition that as the wind was pretty strong, the balloon was in a I measuie kept up so us to break the fall. Loud cheeislroni the assembled crowd greeted the daring man wnen it was ascertained that not withstanding the fearlul rapidity of his fall he was sound, wind, limb, and eyesight M. Verdalie yesterday gave he m< at wonderful proof of his proficiency in ground and lofty tumbling we ever wituesacd? ,Vim> OrUant CrfKtnt, March 12.
