Hereafter, the double sheet of the New York Herald will be published every Tueaday morning. I We have come to this conclusion, in order to accommodate the vast body of new advertisers who are pressing forward for admittance into the co lunins of that edition of our journal. The enterprise of publishing a double sheet for the benefit of the business community, has succeeded beyond our most sanguine expectations; and although we i begin with the issue only of one such sheet week- | ly, we mean gradually to extend this accotnmoda- j tion, by publishing a similar sheet, whenever ne- ; | rptuurv twin* a w#?rk (rrnHimllv inrrtnirtintF th? I - arrangement, so hs to be enabled fully to meet tho j t wants and wishes of this rapidly growing city, by j 1 the publication of a double sheet every day. But, | 1 far the present?and during the approaching sum- tj mer, when the nctivity of business slackens? s we shall restrict ourselves to the issue of one c double sheet each week ; and Tuesday is fixed 11 upon for the permanent day of issue. Advertisers (| of all kinds will please take notice of this an- n nouncement, and govern themselves accordingly, a f Iht Annexation of Cuba?The Foreign Po th y of the Administration. p A few days since, we gave an outline of the fo- t reign policy which, from indications here and < elsewhere, we inferred would, in all probability, be l adopted by General Taylor and his cabinet, during i the preeent administration. A part of this policy? ] that in regard to the annexation of Cuba?was rep- < resented to be non-intervention in the affairs of I i that island, a relinquishment of the negotiations c which were commenced by the admin Miration of Mr. b Polk and the Spanish ministry, and no interference ti St sll with thnt islund, unless an attempt should be mude by Spain to tram-fer it to some European 1< power. tl When we take into consideration the spirit ri which is at work in this irje of the world, it ap- ti pears evident that nations and governments are o controlled more by circumstances than circurn- n stances are controlled by them. If wo could con- ? trol the relations of the island of Cuba, such a u policy as has lieen adopted, as we are informed, hy ?i the administration, might be followed. But is b there no prospect of the question of the annexation i 1 Cuba being forced upon the people ol the United I1 States before the present administration shall v have run its course? We think there is. The in- t habitant* of Cuba' tire themselves desirous of har- t ing their island annexed to the United State*.

Again; the provinces of Canada uro in a re?oln? ionary condition. Kerent occurrence* in lint url of the American continent indicate u eep.iru ion from the mother country, and the eal.ibliah- t nent of an independent nation, or the annexation < >f those province* to the United St ilea. Public i :>l>iiiitn there ia divided a* to which alternative < viII he taken ; but there ia no doubt that one or the Jther will he adopted before very lonif. We do not lee how it can he avoided. If the rebellion bill, ua t ia culled, he vetoed by the Queen, the whole of Lower Canada will aaaunie the poaition which the ipper province now holda ; and if it be allowed, he upper province will, iu all probability, aeck to lievolve the union at preaent existing between the ? <> I.rrivinpi u unit eiirrv their reiiented threola to lint effect into force. In either event, it it* clear o lie tliut the annexation of the Canada# to the United States ia inevitable?ia only a question of inn?and must take pi .ce, or weal or for wo, before many years shall have elapsed. It mtynot )ccur for many yeurs yet, and it may long before he year IH62. Now, if such a proposition were nHde to the people of the United States, it is easy o perceive thdt it would not be acceptable to the Southern Stales, unless the increased anti-slavery nlluence which such annexation would bring into lie councils of the nation, were counteracted, or it least counter-balanced, by a pro-slavery influtnce ftoin some other quarter. Nor would it be ust or pro|>er owarda our Southern brethren to annex Canada without taking these things into consideration. The Northern States abolished slavery, simply for the reason that sluve labor was unprofitable, and could not profitably compete at home with free w hite lubor. Motives of humanity, except in rare instances, hud nothing to do I with the ubolition of slavery in the North. We do not heliuve that the people of the i Southern Stutea are a whit less humane than i those of the Northern; but we do believe, i that as soon us slavery becomes us unpro- | Citable in the South as it became in the North, in former times, it w ill be abolished there, too, I as it has been in the North. But as this will not I occur for some time yet, and us in the meantime i there is every probability that the annexation ol the i Canadas will be agitated, and become an open ]uestion, we must look urouud us and see whence we can get the pro-slavery influence in our legis- ' uture at Washington, so as to preserve the balance j >f power, as well us the harmony of our political | lystem. To no place can we look but Cuba for it. Ag aim it must be borne in mind that the democratic party, although defeated and broken up in the lust presidential election, will in all probability be reunited, and form a compact, solid, and itn- | rosing force, before the next presidential canvass j ihall hare come round. Efforts are being made o reunite that party, und the probability is that hey will be attended with success. If that party hould be reunited, and should take up the question of the annexation of the island of Cuba, and ^ hould the Cubans remain disposed to form such a onnexion, and in the meantime render themselves ( ^dependent of the Spanish nation, an issue of qua! importance, and attended with equal results ^ u that of the annexation of Texas, would be subiiitted to the people of the United States. The .occasion of that island would be grasped at, not only ^ i>r the acquisition which it would be, possessing, ^ .s it does, a soil and a climate unexcelled tn any art of either hemisphere, but from the safety and iccurity it would give us in times of difficulty and langer. The ideu has become fixed in the American mind, thut, at some time or other, Cuba ( must, in the nature of things, become part and parcel of this confederacy; and of late years, u con- j ratenution of events seems to indicate that that tune s now not very long off. If such should be the nurse of the democratic party, then Canada will ? e taken in, it it be not before that time annexed d the United States. * Under this state ot things, therefore, and as )ng as we cannot control circumstances, we think hat the policy which has been determined upon in " pgard to Cuba, by the administration, will not c ?nd in the slightest degree to defer the annexation 8 f that island to the United States. It will have o effect at all on the great question. The islanu j f Cuba will he annexed in time, and it depends pon contingencies, very likely to occur ut any ' nonient, whether such annexation will tuke place iefore the present administration shall have ended ts career, or General Taylor re-elected to the residency. It may or it inay not tuke place vithin that time; but whatever policy the udintnisration may adopt will have no effect, one way or | he other, on the subject.

The parties in this unfortunate ntr.iir bei?ng? d to wluit is called the resfiectable class of ociely, and prodigious efforts will be made on a itch side to gain the |K>ints contended for by f 1..

It is also a singular fact, that in m iny / uch cases the pop alar joiirn ila of the d iy too r reipiently are influenced by either one or other T I the contending parties.

It will he Keen the General e.xpreanea himself ?eiy favorably regarding public education, freedom ol the preen, religious toleration, and all the policy so requisite in u well regulated republic. It is, altogether, a most clearly written address, and sinintlurlu frt'f from thfi noninoiiM vprhrmifv in winch Spaniards are mo apt to indulge. In another point <>t view it in interesting, as it akows that this young republic is going on well and favorably. It is too generally thought that nothing but revolutions are going on in the South American States. It is certainly true there liuve been many ; but then, sonsideling the circumstances in which they have beeu placed ever since the achievement of their independence?not much over twenty years ago?much allowance ought to be made for them Left by the Spaniards in a most depressed condition as regards education, roads, manufactures, and everything ihat goes to muke a nation ; overwhelmed with an enormous debt to England; in a country but thinly peopled, and whose mountainous character m ule communication from one point to another almost impossible?it is not surprising that they have had trouble and difficulty to contend with. The real matter to he surprised at is, how they have advanced so much as they huve, (ieneral Lopez's uddress speaks the sentiments nf the vust majority of the Granadians who elected him, and shows that they, at leust, know how to try and elev.te their country. That they will do so, in time, we doubt not. Would that wo could draw such a favorable picture of Venezuela. That unfortunate country, ufter attaining a vast deal of prosperity, seems suddenly to have retrograded. Military deniagoguism, and the officious interfi?r?*nr** r?f (nr^iirnprH in thf nolitiru nf thi* roiintrv. have conduced much to tins result; nnd we fear [he difficulties will continue there for some time to ttome. The PrBLic Amusements.?One of the mo9t imIKirtunt and influential elements of order and social government, under the present system of civilization, is undoubtedly to be found in the character and working of public amusements. Among these amusements, theatricals hold the first place. We beliuvc that nothing could keep such a state of society us prevails in this and other large and populous communities in any degree of order, without the existence of theatres, und other places of pubic amusement. Theatres are, therefore, as ne.'essary to sociul order and sociul progress, six lays in the week, as churches are on the seventh. All the lending theatres are doing a good busiless, notwithstanding the tmeute at the Astor Mace Opera House, with its twenty-three killed nd fifty wounded. That disastrous affair was he result of the effort of a little coterio of indisreet citizens, hacked by the civil authorities, to orce an obnoxious actor upon a resisting audince ; but it has failed to exercise a prejudicial inluence upon the leading theatrical establishments, vhich are conducted in a popular manner and spirit. Among the movements in the theatrical line, in the upper region of the city, the most prominent is the rupid progress of Niblo's new theatre, on the lite of his old and famous "Gardens." We are glad o observe the fuvorable tokens of the advancement >f this new enterprise ; for Messrs. Nililo ?k Iackett, the managers of the Astor Place theatre? >r rather Massacre Place Opera House?suffered greatly, in consequence of being under the necesity of submitting their judgment to those who asumed the control over them. If the respectable lommittee of old and young exquisites had not uKen poor Mucready out ot the nands ot his malagers, and in conjunction with the folly of the ity authorities, attempted to force a disagreeable dor upon a repulsive audience, the late lamentable events would never have taken place; but ve hope that Niblo?always one ot the most popuar and deserving men connected with our public imusements?will sutler nothing from the folly of hose who compelled hia action in the case. This heatre is rising rapidly from the ground, and as it rises the Opera House in Massacre Place?we mean ?Astor Place?sinks and fades. Indeed, the unforunateand bloody eventsconnected with thatalfair, mtiplfd with its silly history for two or three years jofore, will lead to the necessity of closing it alogetheraa a place of public nmiioement. We would idvise the proprietors of Massacre Place Opera louse to convert it into a church?into a place or hearing sermons, and singing psalms, and miking prayers, and repenting of sin; for assuredly, here lias been enough of sin committed in that ?gion to he repented of in sackcloth and ashes. City Financial Rkpokm.?We are very much fniid that our anticipations of a reform in the inn until affairs of tli e city, uro not likely to ho pslized. From a recent report of one of the coniaiitees of the Common Council, we perceive that lie hill for refreshments at Astor Place, daring the eroic riot in favor of a foreign actor, amounts to early seven hundred dollars! Then it is to be ecollectod that the c'.ty und oounty must put the LMor Place Opera House into a decent state of rpnir ; so that what with the crimson velvat, and hussels carpet, and cosllv chandeliers, and siilen id gilding, necessary to make the pltice lit for the rception of iiH refined patrons, the whole cost of Iip decision between the cod-fish aristocracy who vntild hear Maeready, and the cod-fish democracy vho would not hear htm, will amount to at leant en thousand dollars?all to come out of the pock;ts of the honest republicans of both parties, who efrained altogether from taking any part in the (pit>hble, hot wlto had twenty-three killed and ifty wounded, for merely locking on ! A rery good leginntngin the way of financial reform! Thk PmiLtc 1'lAi.nt.? We have heard a food deal about the unprecedented efforts of the itv authorities in cleansing the city. If the state if Washington street, and the lanes running into t. or of the wharves all along the North and Mast ivers.be a specimen of cleansing, heaven deliver is from all such cleanliness! The greater portion >f the lower wards is filthy beyond description. }<iu1d not some slight attempt be made to purify hei-e streets and lanes, reeking with pestilential ptsesl Could they not bp cleansed at a somewhat irnaller con than the loss of twenty-three killed ind fifty wounded 1 Preps rations for tiik Nkw CtTr Constitu u- ,i.m, ii..,..i i-.-.I..... .......

Hints to tot Boston Folks.?Htaee the introduction of the Coohituate water into Boston, nearly every person who has a jet in the aide-walk before his premises, may be Been with hose in hand, sprinkling the streets, not because it is necessary to do so, but because the entire population?men, women, and children?are so delighted with the fact that pure and wholesome water gushes, as it were, out of the stones of the street, that they must needs be playing with it all the time. They appear like boys who have become |M>heessed oi some new plaything; and on seeing with what delight they use the pipe and watch the girations in the air of the stream that f scapes from it, one is forcibly reminded of the words of Pope:? " BrhoM tha child, hy nature's kindly law, Pleased with a rattla, tickled with a straw!" ?And well lliey may be (dsased ; for they have swallowed lime enough in the well water they have drank during the last twenty-five years, to whitewash every building in irif city; una u uiey are not tickled with the assurance that they litre now the privilege secured to them, " for all time," of taking their lime and their water in separate donee, then they cannot be tickled at all. Howerer, that is not what we intended to say when we commenced this article. We intended mrrely to state our objections to such a wholesale and irregular uss of their water. Strangers, and especially ladies, are most excessively annoyed by it. It is almost impossible to walk the streets without wet feet, owing to the flooded state of the sidewulks and crossings; and if it he not soon stopped, the Boston folks will be denounced as ihe greatest squirts in ths Union. We are told ihut no ordinuncu has yet been enacted to prevent

this silly and wasteful use of the water; and as such an act is highly necessary, we will give ihem an extract from the ordinances of this city, in which it is provided that, Krom the first <luy of May to ths first day of November all persons are forbid to use th<> Crotoo water for washing streets sidewalks, steps or buildings, after 8 A M. or before T P.M ;nnd from the first day of Norember to the first day of May following, after # A.M , or before 0 P.M., under the penalty of five dollars for eooh offence. Such on ordinance would work well in Boston, and we hope one will soon be enucted; for such ui uui iniu^io nuu vvin.o|'v>iuvMk? wV?<? sion to visit thut city often, complain of the want of it. If 'twere done when it is done, then it were well; and if 'twere done quickly, so much the better for all whom it may concern. The Facific Mail Stkamebs.?We may now consider that How land and Asplnwall's Uue of steamer* on the Pacific is completely organized, and will hereafter run regularly once a month between Panama and San Francisco, to toucb,at one or two intermediate porta.

O Bailey, so favorably known aa the skilful navigator of the packet ship Yorkshire; the Oregon by Capt. It. H. Pearson; and the California by Captain Thomaa A. Budd, both experienced seamen and accomplished commanders. It is now to be expected that in future we shall receive advices every four weeks from San Franclsoe, giving us a monthly mall from the thousands of Americans who are now pouring Into the gold region.

The following table has boen prepared with great eare, showing the comparatively monthly export of molasses from Havana, Matansas, Cardenas and Marle^ up to the 1st of May. From the 1st ot May until date there has been about 4.000 hhds. shipped, and there will probably be about 2.000 more during the month, which will show a decrease in the exportation of abeut 24 000 hhds. to the first of June; and as there ha* been &,000 and upward* more shipped to Europe than at same time last year, it shows that up to the 1st of June there have been 20,000 bhds. less shipped to the States than last year, and 35 000 leas tbau the year before. Upon the best calculation that onn be made, there will not he over 18 000 bhds more to ship during the year, which will show a deficit for 1840, in the exportation, of about 35,000 hhds less lhau In 1848, aud about 42.000 hhds. less than in 1847.
