Trieste, June 2:5, 1351. ^ 'J'he Imprisonment of Mr. Bract?Particulars?The Charge* against him, Qrc. The chief excitement iD this city, just at pressnt, a a touching American affairs, is the rooeut arrest at Gross Wardein, of the Her. Charles L. Brace. The prominent facts of this case you have, no doubt, already had. You have, no doubt, hoard that Mr. Brace is a native of Iiartford, Connect i-cut, of highly respectable famiiy, a graduate of Yale College, and some twenty-five or twenty-six years of age; thut he has been coane;ted as a student with a Presbyterian theological seminary In New York, and is a young man <>f active mind .and fine abilities; that he came to Europe last year; and, after- travelling in England, Holland, and North Germany, settled at Berlin for the winter, and perfected himself in German, so as to speak it fluently, duriDg whioh time he associated intimately with our Minister, Mr. Barnard, and the Secretary of Legation, Mr. Fay; that, in April 'sst, he arri.ed at Vienna, and, having received a general letter of commendation from our charge, Mr. MeCurdy, departed in the mouth of May for J Pe th, in Hungary; that the police of Vienna j strongly dissuaded him from visiting Hungary* j owing to the unsettled state of the country; that he, however, proceeded to Pesth, by railway, and thence, after a brief tarry, southwest to Gross j Wardein, a military post in Hungary, on the frontier of Transylvania, about BOO miles from Vienna, j anil not far from the borders of Tu.kev: that ho wias received with much attenion by the II trigs ' rians, and wrote back to Mr. McUunfy he w.ts i "huvug a glorious time;" and, finally, that, in the | very midst of this "glorious tiuie," without one | word of, he was suddeuly arrested, M iy 2Btb, at the order of the commanding officer of ttie ' Austrian troops at that post, and thrown into the ' fortress?his carpet bag having at the same time keen soiled, broken open and searched. Intelligence of this event reached Vienna about the 25d of June, by a letter from Brace, borne by a private hand, which letter, o ving to a brief tempo- | rary absence of Mr MoCurdy, was delivered to the j American Consul, Mr. Schwartz This g> ntleuum at once applied to the Under Scoretary of Foreign ^ Affairs, Prince Nth war/enberg beiog then absent j at the conferenee of the Kmperors of Russia and Attetrin, at Olmutr: and. having represented ihe utter improbability of the charges against Mr. j Brace, demanded his release. A few days afterwards, on Mr. Mct'urdy's return to Vicuna, us wt-11 j as that of Prince Fehwurzenoerg, the Minister bud an immediate interview witb the Secretary, j who expressed surprise at thr event?bad the tacts j relative to Brace communicated by Mr Mel'mdy i t> It-graph, d to Pesth, and assured the Minister that tbe whole subject should receive eirly iuvesli- i gation, and, if the assertion.- made relative to rf-a -c proved correct, he would bo discaarged; bis severest punishment being to be put over the borter 1 of the empire.

Sayings and Doings of Mr. Webster?Expedition to the Congo River?Comj>luint of the Want of Buoys off the Hatbor of Nexo York?Amusements on Board, fyc. According to promise, I proceed to give you further partic ular!- of the delightful excursion on board the steamship (JoldenGate, as well as the incidents of the vojsgc from Annapolis to New York. It ie worthy to be recorded, that from the oarliest dtys of ship building to the present time, and of all the entertainments given on the occasion of trial trips of vessels, the present was never exceeded, neither with regard to the maguificence of the construction of the ship, the generosity and liberality displayed by Mr. Aspinwall in the sumptuous fare provided, nor the distinguished guests who were on board, to say nothing of the distance and pleasantness ol the voyage, or of the high enjoyment that pre. vailed. It may not be generally known, that Mr. Aspinwall is the pioneer of the great line of steamship: now floating in the Pacific Ocean, aud ruuuing from Panama to San Francisco. The keel of the first steamship for California was laid by him in lect ruber, 1818, und sailed on the first of October, 1848? a period of hardly twenty-one months agoarid yet, ut this day. thoro are fifteen magnificent steamers now ploughing the waters of the Pacific, built by the enterprise, energy, und talent of Willism H Aspinwall. The great feature in connection with this enterprise is, that they did not wait to establish shipyards or workshops at Panama or San Francisco, in order to repair their steamors, but each vessel carried out in her all the mechanics, tools, iron, timber, aud everything else that was necessary to provide against aoeidents, ami repair them as soon as tbey occurred. This is the great superiority which we enjoy over tho Knglish steamers. The difference is, that our mechanics act and wotk understanding^, and repair the injury at the moment of its occurrence, while tho ?nglish,n>t being thus provided, wait to send their vessel* homo, and repair ibetn afterwards. l'urirg the trip a splendid set of charts of the coast and ports of California, dedicated to Win. II. rtspinwall. Lsq , was presented to the ship < 1 olden (late by Cadwalader Jlinggold, Commander U.S. Navy. The surveys and soundings were principal/ made by Commander Kinggold himself, ai^.1 do honor to bis talent and profession. Our run from Cape lfenrj to Sandy Iloo't Light, was made in twenty two hours, notwithstanding the vessel was stopped several times to get souudiiigs, and a heavy souall, early on Thursday morning. caused the ship to make a great run off tr tin the coast, which consequently added greatly to her distance. .^hc made as high as seventeen and a half revolutions, and averaged fourteen during the trip. Once or twice the machinery beeume heated, us is generally the case with all new engines, so that the sj*cd of the vessel was not tried. I omitted to statu in describing her machinery, that her boilers are built ou a somewhat novel construction, ralhd horizontal tubular boilers. Sho has two aft, and two forcward of her engine, with five rooms in i l-o centre of the ship, running fore and ufi, and a low of furnaces on each side. Her engines are nominally ot 320 horse power each, but are really of about 800 horse power. We bnd fine moonlight nights and a smooth sea tin-most of the trip, and the passengers preferred sitting upon deck to a late hour, or rather I should say, " an early one,**listening to songs and stories, than to going below. There was one spot below, however, which was very attractive. This was the family room, containing two or three state rooms, and several open berths, whieh was occupied by a Mtu her of the distinguished guests, all of whom were over six feet in stature, and inativ of them wote large liearils and inoustachios. This room watt dubbed "the nursery," and a pretty set ofchil* die n oeeupted it. I do a-sure you. A large trunk in tlie emtio of this room served for a sideboard, on which a waiter was plaeed, containing mysterious blaik looking bottles, and a huge pitcher whieh swi utcd under the load of ice it coutnined. The bight st dignitaries onboard the ship wore frequently seen pu)itig visits to this room, not excepting in it uk'u ui inc t j <>i ii. * 'ccbmoqai ly muu hunln lit laughter would be heard emanating {rout the nursery,," and echoing through the ?ht|> ; but 1 i rnili! l ot learn the mysterious cause which proouod thcin.

W YO SUNDAY MORNING, The Tebuantepec Route. New York, July 18, 1851, > TO Till EDITOR OF TI1K HERALD. My attention baa been called to an article in your paper of yesterday's date, under the caption of the , "Tebuantepec Trouble," &c., which n in many respects bo inoorrect, and is also so unjust towards > the members of the engineering party lately employed on the Isthmus of Tchuaotepac, that I feel constrained to address you this reply. Without entering upon the legal question of the | right of the Mexican Congress to annul the grant I nf l)nn <1a (I a rn v in /lAnfoemiiw iwiftt the constitution of that rcpublio, whijh vests in the President the power to grant concession* of lands, for oolonization, internal improvements, &c., I shall content myself with noticing such statements only as tend to implicato, in some mcasuro, those persons in the service of the United States, engaged in the survey of the route, and the good faith of thoso gentleman who composo the Tehuantopco Railroad Company. The statement that " those associate 1 with (iaray have attempted to go on with the work commence tho survey of the route, and go to Coatzacoalcoas with steamboats, and engineers, surveyors, workmen, provisions and merchandise, and land, though forbidden by tho Mexican authorities," is utterly erroneous. Jlvory member of tho survey was provided with a Mexican passport, duly certified at Vera Cruz; the party was under the direction of Major J. G. Barnard of tho Corps of U. ! S. Kngineers, and by an order of the Central < iovernment of Mexico, (a copy of which appeared in ; the Ilerufd,) all tho stores, instruments, and equip; ments necessary for tho use of the surveying party, i were udmitted into the oeuntry tree of duty ; and, ' moreover, permission was given to tho stcumship l Alabama to make several trips to tho C-mtzaco, alcoas, for the purposo of landing and receiving pas- 1 j sengers, &o. The representation in the article in | question, ot the conduct of tho engineering party t | on arriving at the river Coat/acoalcoas, is unjust to thtm in every paiticular. They did not "invade" j the country. There was no opposition to their landing and going on with tho survey which they completed peaceably and quietly. They did not land or attempt to lund any " merchandise." Tho fi only merchandise on board their vessel was a few ( i "plank," which was by permission entered at Vera j Cruz, and a hig b duty paid thereon. Nor were any j of them imprisoned by the police, or threatened; * ror hud they any difficulty with tho authorities. i ne J a.-scDgers 01 a vessel unonnootod with the i i Tebuanlcpcc t ompany, and having no connection t" 1 with the engineering party, ho<l come trouble with ? the Mexican authorities, as has been reported, in h i various ways, in the newspapers; but wo had 110- tl thing to do with theui in any way, except gratuit- ' ously to aid in the fiiendly settlonient of the dispute. v liud -ueh statenicnts as these made their appear- h anee in any of the trashy shoots of the day, a oontra- d diction of them would bo >|Uito unnecessary; bat. tl : tvlo nthe Weight and force ot ono of tho oldest and h ! most largely circulated journals in the country it em- h ployed to disseminate incorrect statements, lending *t to impugn the good faith and patriotism of soma t? i of the lirst capitalists in the Eolith, and the cou- tl i duet of a scieutilie commission, composed in part ot officers of the army and navy, under the ganotiou of the President of the United States, it is pro- ai per that the same should bo contradicted an l re- f ! fitted. 1 am aware that telegraphic and other 1 loose rcjtorts have been published iu different news- ' ' ] u| crs,from time to time, troin which,doubtle-s, tho ! h I ortorsin your article have arisen; but 1 am satis- 0 fn-dtbul it wdl give you pleasure to correct them. C i They arc all without foundation. I By reference to the rtumbets of the Jlcrail si j early iu this month, it will l>e found that all tho t 1 survey sou tho 1-thuius had been, and u the party on tluir tetiitn to tbo United States, long b bot'irc any a't<on towards tbc fabulous expulsion of the Americans was talicn by the Mexican govern- 14 uicnt; and, moreover, that every facility wa-, and " 1: id been, freely furnished, and as freely paid for, \ * during tbe progress of the survey, to advance its 11 1 completion. * 1 1 it no: my pmvince nor my privilege to antic! ? I ate the publications of the reoorta of Major Bar- ? j n irii, oxeep'so far as it mty be necessary in his I absence to relate charges which tend to a IT-at the 1 k UMWt* ot in- labors, and his distinguish -d repu- J' tatioD. In reply, therefore, to the statement* con- ? I corning the Tehuantepeo route, I bog leave briefly to ;i--ure you that it is quite at les-iMe ns vny ill ' the United Mates; that there are no loss than six ^ I mountain pauses, all Admitting of grades not ' i greater than tit) lest; that the road eau be built !l upon a grade ol 5"> feet to the mile; that a ship J' ratal is by no means impossible; that earth- ' quake* have not oeeutred ou the Isthmus, so far I fi am info lined ; that the lands arc incomparably rich, v abounding in iron, tin, silver, salt and coal mines, together with mahogany, lignum vittc, India rubber, ^ pine, live oak, and cypres, and every variety of 1 gum tree.' and dye wools. We may add to these a 1 xntl and climate adapted to the raising of rice, cot- ' I ton, Mignr, and tobacco, equal, if not suporior, to ' the fiiuel portion-of the southern country, and in x j ounctities sufficient, should the Isthmus fall into ' 1 llie hands of foreign capitalists, to ipjure seriously, ' | if not destroy, tho American fade to Kurope; the ? i existence of an excellent harbor on the I'acillc ; a c magnifier nt rixer on this side, navigable for do miles fori hips; a salubrious and healthy climate ; the ' i close proximity ol the Isthmus to tho United States; ' , the saving of two thousand miles in the voyage to ' California ; the control of the entire India trade, j and the market which the States of the South and West must have for their produce on the shores of ^ the I'ariCc, it is plain, then,that the "luvasion" | h of the Is-hmiis, so liberally imputed to the cngi- b i iieerit g party, has-been at'en<i< d wiihsome good | ' if Hill* : '?! that Tehuunfepec p hm*?c? im ne.i*a- 1 table advantage* over the B f|4*i'K> tnnra*?i ?. and Htrren heights of Panama, or tbe stagnant lake of Nicaragua. The action of the late Mexican Congress, in reference to fbc Tebuantcpec route, i? due t > the itdluenre of the Uictubcr* from the > -ate of Vera i tin/ ami f'axaca, wboopposc it on the ground that fbey are not likely to reap any benefit from it?in ott? r not'la, the decline of their capital* ' but too plainly depicted in the approaching reality of th> gtrnt drcatn which Corfei bad centuries aince. ty cflort, therefore. ha* been *trained to arert this blow; and even the peoplo of Sinora and Taoiaulipa* have been humbugged into the idea o' railroad* there, to secure their oppositien to Tehuantepec.

Tbete privilege* have been unexpectedly revoked I'umor stands ready, as usual, to attribute to foreign interference an act of alleged 0 perfidy on the part of the Mexican government. d The administration i* likewise blamed because oar minister t? Mexico ban been detained at homo by ill-health. l'p,,n this important subjoct wo should sup|o?e that the position of the national administration may ho easily stated The government of tho I 'nited States could not becon a a party to the interests, nor be stimulated by tho discontent, of any parties engaged in a mere private enterprise It will not depart in It# transactions with a feeble an i distracted government fiom those principle! wbieh would govern im iclations with the most powerful nations of the raith. Hot. at the same time, itsdutv is oaually clear to protect against any injustice the rights of I r American citirens, and to malto any improper interference with those rights, on the part of a foreign power, the subject of immediate and resolute remonstrance. , The administration earnot be justly reproached with ignorance of. or indifference to, the interests of its citirens To execute the laws at home in a spirit of equal and inflexible justice, and to mainnin with piopriety and firmness the Amerioatiohalaeter amongst the nations of the earth, has been t thus far the purposs of the present administration Nor is the government indifferent to the i^tporf tanee of securing connections across t)as ConI tral Isthmus ITiey sra obviously important to establish convenient intercourse between the- Atlantic RK H JULY 20, 1851. and Pacific systems ol rates. They are likewise i of incalculable importance in determining the great problem of competition amongst the commercial powers of the earth. This is, in every point of riew, a national object. Nor is it to bo presumed that the administration has been indifferent to tho luccess of the various projects of connection, or that t would fail to promote, by a proper exorcise of its nflucnce or authority, an object so important. It will evince neither a partiality to, nor a disregard > >f, any one of tho enterprises. Its patronage and I protection are alike due to them all, as adventures in which tl*> nation is deeply interested. 'I hat tno absenoe of Mr. Letober has been occa'iored

by severe and protracted indisposition, there ] an be no doubt; but wo have no evidence that the ntcrests of the nation or of individuals have suEfor;d from that cause. The treaty pending between he United states and Mexico in regard to Tehu- i tntepco did not reach the city in time to receive the iction of Congress before its adjournment. It is not expected to be acted upon by that government : :ailiorthan January next No injury hiving resulted thus far from the ill- ] ae?s or absence of Mr. Letcher, the administration : lias naturally preferred to await some crisis in the ; ucgotia .ions which would render the presence of a uiiuiKKrai iuc cit/ 01 moAioo uuj>t ritii* uiy ueoes- < wry. It Vitvferrcd, of course. availing itself o"" the I knowledge which .VI r. Letcher possessed of the preliminary and present condition of tho treaty, of the influence which be has established with the government and people of Mexico. The government is naturally unwilling to lose ' :he valuable services whi ;h he may render, or to lepriveMr. Letcher of the credit of bringing to a , prosperous termination a treaty thus far couductr 1 id so favorably. It is not to be expected, however, that the infirnitics of a public agent can arrest public business. ! iVe are authorised, in this connection, to correct | he report that Mr. Letehur will not return tj.Mexco. l'be state of his health will not in any mar.ler interfere with the efficient perf irmaiiee of the i tublic duties.

San Francisco, Juno 1, 1851. Messrs. California Speculators and Shippers; Gentlemen?We beg to acknowledge the receipt of 17,5?0,110 invoices ani bills of ladieg of goods shipped by you to this port. Most of the goods have arrived, and wo have disposed of part at one half the prime cost. Many of the invoices were closed up by the regular fire of the ?th ult We enclose you a general account, and shall forward i special account sales "in the fall." We send you the AUu price current, tb?< quotations in which you can rely upon as the highest retail nriee. From the commercial articles, you will bo able to see the perfectly transparent state of tho market. Some two hundred of your vessels have cleared for China und the East Indies; tao balance, say five hundred, remain in port, from our inability to negotiate further drufts upon you. Most of them are less liable to sink, as they now lie on the mud flats, than they would be if sent to sea, and we would ad vise their remaining ho for the next, forty or liity years. We would advise the immcdiato shipment of some five hundred assorted cargoes, as the supply in the market is not mure than sufficient for fifteen months. By all means ship in clipper ships, as the commission on freights, ut $4 per foot, is quite an item in our receipts. We recommend a large shijv incut of pork, which article, if not placed here so as to be sold at $5 per harr.d, will be driven out of the market by the lurge supply of fresh provisions being carried into tbo mining districts. Any article quoted at high prices, the consumption of which is limited, should be shipped in large quantities, in order to compete with the host of other shippers. It is not advisable to ship any of the produce of your own country, us the supplies of such articles mostly come from other ports. We are daily expecting a large supply of sugar, ccfl'ce, spicoi and fruits from the North I'ole, and several cargoes of dry and fanoygoods from Siberia, | wbi h will doubtless go off readily. We regret to annouueo the loss of several of your vessels at sea, thus restricting our commissions, and | rendering it necessary foryou to collect the amount insured. In shipping dutiable goods, you need never provide for the payment of tho duties, as we are at all times prepared to advance the amount required at ten per eent-per month interest; or, if you prefer if, have tfe goods stored in the celebrated LI. 3. fire proof iSkided warehouses, at ttie trilling expense of #7 per ton the first mouth, and $3 each suceeodiug month. An anniversary fire is confidently expected on the 1 fth instant, when we hope to close most of our consignments, und forward you final aeet sales. 1 be balance of funds will be remitted by tlie first j vessel "in the spring Trusting that previous operations here have proved sufficiently satisfactory to indueeyuu t ? continue .-hipping n- long us you uro ab:c, and to advise your friends to do so when you huve retired horn the business, we remain, geutleruen. your obliged. &c. fcc. &c. i The Late Fiee in New Orleans?Teu.ity I'm Rett?The Trinity Catholic Ohurota, about which theio lias been so much litficuity, was destroyed by fire at twelve o'clock on Wednesday night, together with t he priest's residcnco. a school use, a frame building, and n grocery store owned Hid occupied by (i Brueer, on tao corner of Urea.jiiii anil Bt.

We scarcely know bow or where to begin, to speak of the very destructive flood that vhited this section of the country thia morning. In the after! noon of yesterday wo bad several light ahovrrs; but in tbo evening, from 7 to 10 o'clock, the rain : fell pretty heavily; and from 10 to 2 this morning, at i times it came down in perfect torrents, accompanied with the most (rightful thunder and lightning ever ' beard. More rain fell here than was ever known to fall in the same length of time. Between Sand 4 : o'clock,Crooked Creek, Muddy Run, Spruce Crook, Shaver's Creek, Stone Creek, and many other*, havirg emptied their floods into the Juniata, she was at her highest, or nearly so, as the flood of '47. The streams above named were never known to bo so high, or the destruction along them so great.
