*. ,f. TH ?? - ? NO. 6485, Late and Iutercettuu from TeiM< [From the New Orleans Delta, June 3.] The steamship Fanny, Captain Scott, arrived Jesterday. She was from Port Lavaca the 29th; rora Galveston the 3(Jih uk. We are indebted to Captain S lor the journals of these cities?we suppote Lavaca is a city. We make the fallowing extracts from the Corpus Chriati Star, of Saturdujr lust, May 26:? Since our last we have heard of no frosh depredations by the Indians iu this section Tho horses stolen from San Patricio appear to bare been taken by a band of white thieves, mixed with Mexicans and D'groe* They were pursued by a party of the citiscns. who kept them in view for ten miles, bat belug badly muusited. were unable to overtake them. A gentleman in this town has received a letter from Mexican friend of his ut Laredo, which gives an account of a rencontre with the Indians near that place lie rays that a party of fifteen I'auiauches arrived at the Han' ho (. apitancno and carried olf a girl about twelve years old iier father and relation* Immediately called together the inhabitants of tile other rauohos, and jrtrsued theui; but being badly mounted, their fores gradually diminished until there were only eight men left, who. being friends of the unfortuuatc captive and excited by a feeling of anger agaiust those atrocious Caribs, resolved to pursue and punish thorn SMereiy Ou the 7lh lust, they overtook them at a place called Magiieylto* (ucar the old itaacho do Dofores, iu the Laredo district), and after a light of more f.hau an hour, succeeded iu rescuing the captive girl. The Indians had three killed, aud the Mexicans tnree wounded ?tho former losing all their plunder aud horses Since that day the Indians have returned iu iorce. aud now range tho linn with perfect freedom robbing the ranches aud destroying everything they can lay their bauds ou A Mexican named llesendes arrived yesterday from Matamoras. in company with four families, who intend filling here. Ou Wednesday eveuiug they encamped this side of the Arroyo Colorado, and while the men were out. getting their cattle together, a party of Indians altucked the camp and carried off four women (.two of them married), and a female child, two years aid. They took au old woman, whipped her nearly to d< atli, and let her go. Wbeu the uiuu returned, the ludiaos hud been gone some time, aud they saw uo more of them or their unfortunate captives The saint* man reported that the old aud extensive Raurho de Rosalia, above the town of Santa Rita, ou the Rio Uraudu, had been eutiruly broken up, uud the luliatntauts were making their way to Corpus Chriati The whole Rio Grande country, with the exception of the large towns, is said to be complete y deserted, aud the Indians roam at will, killiDg mm aud beast wherever tbey meet them The inhabitants were casting longing eyes to the government for relief, and we hope it may arrive before it is t?o lata. Yesterday two Mexicans, belongiug to Colonel Kinsley's Runclio del Oso, were shot on the west bank of the Nueces, just above San fatricio. aud ouu of tnuui. it is "thought, mortally wounded The person* who shot tbeiu are *aid to be white*, aud doubtless belong t? the same gaug who stole the horses at 3au Patricio The Western Texian give* the followiug extract from a letter written at Loredo. by a respectable gentleman, -well kuown in Texas, but whoso naiue is not mentioned:?"The cholera has swept like a whirlwind over Laredo, leaving scarcely a family that Is not lu mourning It raged for twenty days, aud then begaii to disappear, although it still lingers, there being a case today. About two hundred Mexicaus have died. The company of the 1st Intautry stationed here lost eight out of thirty, and a company of emigrants Hi} led the Essex Mining Company, from boston, buried live of their number here, aud I much tear will lose more on their route. They have left for Luaipascus ? they numbered thirty men when they arrived a few days ago " This letter confirms the report relative to the loss of Captain bui-bank's men by choluia published in our last. The writer says "The distress aud desolation here beggar description?the panU was great, aud the people rushed from the town to the ruuehns in tbo neighborhood, which only made the matter worse, aud they were daily Drought hack to die. the premonitory stages having been neglected from their distance from medical aid" lie further says that there are many houses vacant ? the inhabitants having all died?one fumily in particular be ineutions. which consisted of niue persons, of whom eight died. The bau Antonio Trrian mentions a fearful increase of supposed suicide, though we doubt whether so many j sudden deaths are justly chargeable to this cause. That paper says "A recklessness of life unprecedented has exhibited itself in many instanoes; the horrors of death, or the fearful consequences of a hereafter, seems to make but a slight impression upon the iniuds of mauy.whoare daily rushing headtoug" into eternity Within the last tour or five days not less than Ave aud some report seven, bodies have been found lu the Sau Antonio river and the ditch leading from the Alamo to the bend ot the river, supposed to have been drowued The names of two only have been ascertained ?

[From the New Orleans Bulletin.J The most exaggerated report* continue to be published iu the Northern paper*, regarding the crevasse and the overflow in tbis eity; aud to a person ignorant of the facts aud circumstauoes of the case. It would seem as if a cataract like that of Niagara had suddenly hurst upon the city carrying rapid and overwhelming destruction to everything in its path and causing the inbubitauts to flee in the utmost consternation, for tba safety of their live* We have ourselves received letters and have seen similar one* addressed to others, expressing the greatest anxiety on the subject, and urging an immediate abaudoumeut of the city In order tbat the subject may be properly understood abroad, and to relieve the minds of those who inay have friends in New Orleans, or busiuess relation* with the city, we make the followiug statement with all the details of which our citiaeus are of course perfectly familiar. 1 be Mississippi runs through a ridge of land formed originally by It* own deposit*, which gradually decline* aa it recedes from the baok* on eit her side. This ridge however, though higher than the ground further from the river, is not high enough to keep tile water within its bauks in season* of flood and. in consequeuce, an embankment, or levee, is raised, the top of wnich is intended to be above the highest flood* i'his levee, however, I* sometimes not substantially made, or from some other defect or being uudermincd by t lie water the latter makes a breach or creva.-se in it, which, though small at flr*t. rapidly enlarges from the heavy rush of watar through it. and. unless promptly oheeked and closed, frequently becomes unmanageable, audiinpos-ible to be atopped. The gTeat body of water which thus flow* with overwhelming force through the break, naturally seeks, first, the low lauds aud swamps which exist a abort di.-tance back from the river, winch are gradually filled up. until the whole country, above aud below the crevasse, becomes overflowed, and continues to rise to greater or legs extent, as the water may be able to escape and diffuse itself more or less freely, into channels, lakes, or other outlets that may exist in the rear. The crevasse from which New Orleans Is now lufferlng is fourteen miles above the city by the c iur?e of the river, and the break through the levee, we understand Is to the extcut of doll tent. through which the water is rustling with great force on an average depth ..? . . .

Political Intelligence, William S Ash* Is the d?nii<orali't candidate for Congress In the Wilmington district of North i.arellna, Eivr 17' rs -tia Pacific Railroad. New Vow*, M\J 25. 1M9. Editor N. Y. Herald The article in your paper of 21st inst.. on the subject of* Our Intercourse with th# Pacific; the Isthmus of Panama. &c , fce with the illstancvs from Liverpool anil from New York to ports beyond Cape Hnru and the Cape of Good Hope, has induced me to ask yon to place before your readers the following facts, arrived ut from actual experience, and calculations from the highest authorities, and from the results of seven yearrf of investigation. Prior to any Dronosition before Cuneresa fur a railroad eema* at. ! ?_ imam. I took the ground that a communication oetween the Atlantic and Pacific across any part of Mexico, could not have business sufficient to sustain it, and that such a communication any whore, could not b? of use or benefit to us. unless located so far north, that by the sphere of the glotye the distance woulJ be so utu-h reduced, as would force a change of route for the commerce and iutercourse of Europe with Asia; and so far north, that the climate would uot damage and destroy animal and vegetable products, so that the great Mississippi basin would UaveCuropuon the one side, and on the other side all Asia for markets; and I am ready with facts aud figures to sustain my position. The figures from which you speculate, all of which are erroneous, being not your owu, and for which, of course, you are not responsible, are well understood by those who are acquainted with the subject, and mislead those only who have uot examined it all. Before going further, 1 will state, that I am not opposed to u proposition for the construction of any mcaus of transit at I'uuaiuu. or across any other part of Mexico. Were there fifty catials or railroads to-morrow, or should the i'aicitin burst Its bounds, aud mingle its waters with its sister Alkiutic. and open a space lor an unobstructed passage, sufficient for the marine of all the world, it could in uo way interfere with my project or plaus; but. on the coutrary. it would prove aud sustain the position I have lakeu. But such erroneous Statements put forth to the world, as based upon actual calculation of actual distances, sanctioned comiaeuted and speculated upon, by the I'ress generally, are made to injure my plans, by misleading the opinions of the many who do not calculate for themselves, or have not made veyngea to aud from the places named, therefore 1 notice them. My figures will show that no commerce from our Atlantic slope or from Kurope, to any part of Asia, can be carried across at Panama, any part of Muxico or eveu the southern part of our own territory, and u road, if built, must depend for its support entirely upon the intercourse aud exchanges between the two sides The niouutalu range trorn Cape Horn to the Arctic Ocean, which divides both of these continents, their products, commerce and all. prohibits an exchange of commodities. because each produces the same, except manufactured goods. now. an me commerce or ine rar.itic which could possibly be diverted from its present route to a road at Panama (uot including the present temporary rush of emigrants to California.) amounts to but 18,1*32 tonnage per annum, as appears from Treasury report* and tables of british revenue. The emigration to California will soon be reducod, and coutlnud to those who go with their families, to remain, and they, to save expenses, will go around the Cape. This 18.932 tonnage and the present emigrants, might be facilitated by. but It would not support, a railroad. A good wagon or plank road would, no doubt, be useful, aud for several years give a good return rot the investment for its construction ; but it appears to ma that there is one point on this subjeot which has been entirely overlooked. Now, from New York, the' centre of commerce, on the Atlantic coast to Chagres is 2.300 miles?a long voyage, almost as far as to Kurope? and from Panama to San Francisco, a still louger voyage, of near 4,000 miles, and I ask what difference it eau make to any passenger from New York, bound to Sau Francisco. wketber he Is five or ten hours in crossing the Isthmus? It certainly cau make but tiro hours difference in the long voyage of moro than 0,000 miles, and the same with merchandise. The position which I have taken is, that a railroad, tr canal, across any part of Mexico, could bo of no use to us; that the produce of the Pacific slope aud ocean, except the gold and oil, cannot be brought to us for a market, and the gold and oil we can purchase only with such articles as the wants of the people there require, aud which wc may be enabled to furnish in competition with other nations; the avails of labor must b.i returned to where produced, aad there used, so that if we take their gold and oil, it is to us an import, uot a product?the same as if we purchased from Russia or < hiuu? not so with the settlers in Texas, or Iowa, the products of whose labor must come to us for a market, aud be exchanged for commodities which their wants /111 n a Vi<1 (an/1 eannftf Kn aiifii.llud ? - ?' - ? uviwwuu. SUM v??uvv WU PU|rp4l?VlliWUl ?UJT VlUt'I BUUrUtt. The fruits of *11 their toil is. to tile nation, a product. source of wealth anil power. If I am right, and 1 believe I am, what is the object, and what the gain. In facilitating and urging emigration to California ? if the produce of labor is wealth to a nation, is not any man thus urged olf a loss ? \iy statements are not "based upon exaggerated reports uf climate, to " tvery mau acquainted with the commerce of tbe world, must know that such a climate as that of I'anama is ruinous to animal and vegetable products. At New Orleans, which is more than '40 dm. north of Panama, the aunual total destruction from climate is immense; and shipments can be made to Kurope and the Northern ports for only three to four mouths of the year On c?mand wheat shipped to Europe. the deterioration is 45 percent; ou bacon 15 per cent, aud ail commodities more or less injured. This is a subject which wants no argument; aud if the gold gathering should occupy iuiUWns, we cannot supply them with food across Panama?eveu if the climate would not destroy, the heavy expense of transhipments and transit would be a sufficient inducement to go uu the side near to. and produce tor their wants but wo will suppose, as your speculations would lead us. that ' Panama becomes at once the entrepot uf the whole world, and the gate through which tha immense commerce of the Allautlc and Paciilc must pass,'' 1 ask. what can we gain by it ? can wo control it ? Can our commerce be increased by it ? All our commerce cusl of the Cape of Good Hope and west of Cape Horn, including the whole fishery, amount* to an annual aggregate of exports and imports of $25,lu7,94d ; while tbe commerce of Kurope, with tile saute r< ;ious, amounts to an annual aggregate of export* and imports of about $450,000,000 Now. allow it possible (but iny figures will show it te be impossible), to malte Panama the entrepot of this vast commerce; I ask. what benefit could it be to these United Stales' And I a?k the people and the capitalist! of Uoeton. of New York, of I hiladelphia of Baltimore, and the people of all these I nited States, are you willing to furnish meaus to build up outside and out of your country, a city to bo the depot for the commerce of the world f A commerce in which you can participate no more in Its benefits, than you d? od its present route around the Cape of Good llope? Will you. at your own expense, attempt to divert from your own couutry a commerce which commands and controls the world ? Audi ask the people of the South und the southern statesmen particularly, are you willing to furnish your quota of mean*, to draw te your coast tbe entire marine force of the world, to wateh your motion* and interests, and to gaard a commerce in which they cannot participate? Could your speculations be realized, the result must be as I have described it; but I will come to actual distances. which must settle tbe whole nunstion :?

And from F.ngland to Singapore, the difference in favor of the present route would be 3.488 miles. The pamphlet which I gave you will abow the particulars of all these routes. Now. ean any one believe that Panama, Nicaragua or Tehuantepec, can be made the entrepot of the vast commerce of the world? Would a merchant send his ship 2.000 to 3,000 miles or more out ol'her course, pay traushipmuutsaud trausit, barely to make i'anama the entrepot ? if my figures are right, thou it is clear thut the route for the commerce aud Intercourse af Kuropo with Asia cannot he changed to across any part of Mexico.

This is a book Introduced to the English public by Mr chapman.the publisher.?and full to overflowing of that tierce and furious writing which appears to bo so dear to American authorship?but on a subject which the recent march of uvents has endowed with great publie Interest. Of the author himself?or of the execution of his work?it is impossible to say much that is favorable Distemper and temerities remove him from the pale of moderate sympathies; we have no wish to chafe his anger?and to correct his misinformation on things English and European, would tako up too much of our time and space. Patience has its limits ?and Mr. Wiksff is just the sort of man to find them out. His hatred of England is cordial and iutense. lie hates her institutions, her history, her race, hur literature She has in his eyes no redeeming point. His own country he avows has only one great misfortune? the use of a common languid* with England Why, then, does uot Mr Wikol! abide by his ancestral Russian? In so fierce a republican, It is rather amusing to find such devotion to the Imperial family of France. Carlyle himself could not worship more enthusiastically at the shrine of its chief than does the " American citizen." Hatred of Englaud and laudation of " Napoleonic Ideas" are quite compatible: hut we rather marvel to tlod the two in connexion with a democracy so red a* Mr. Wikoir professes Our author advertise* himself a* an intimate friend of every member of the Bonaparte family, and proven hie assertion by here reportlug private couvernation* held in the scrresy of their home*, by those illustrious personage* Such services should not go unrewarded, and the leant that the President of the young republic can do fur hi* laudator, la to make him rnon-dropper to tome foreign court?Si Petertburgh.

Louis was in disgrace when his imperious brother had the order of succession to the empire fixed? and he and hi* descendants were exeluded. How far this law founded on a whim, is binding in snch a new state of things as tlie present, is a question which thu partizans of the family are beginning to ask themselves, i.onis Napoleon is the only remaining male member of the families entitled by the laws of tlie empire (28 Florcal. an hi aad 6 Frimalre, U. mi ) to the succession Thu Prince of Cunino. tlie real head of the bouse, has declared hi* inieution of returning to krauce and entering tlie Chamber The other princes of the family who are at present prominently before the public arc.
