We published in yesterday's Hffluu> tbe oonnertnl wkh the Jlnalt of the Mexican revolution, the flight o *lMta *i""| the depositing of the reins of government id *0 h-~?- of a%iumvirate, the subsequent appointment et GinersJ Carrera, as President for six months, the ex a^arated (eeling of the people when the news of Santa im , fljgbt became known, the doings of the mob in ?eeking and pillaging the houses of Senor Bonilla, the ?te Minister ol Finance, of .Santa Anna's mother-in-Uw, ?aaora Toeta, of the banker Escandon, &C., and of the ] Htaie of public feeling generally, brought about by these events. We take from the correspondence of the ?ew Orleans papers the following additional particulars: antv ?l Mexico (Aug. 19) Correspondence of the New r OrleaM Delta.] ?ODWS OP THE POPULACE ? 1IAS3 MEETING IN TIE ALAUKOA THE PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT AND THE PRESS. In a brief note by the last steamer, I foreshadowed the realisation of the trents of tlie last tea iluys in this capi ta). Santa Anna, no longer His Serene Highness, or I'rtnce President, finding that he could not subdue or conciliate the opposition against his tyranny iind plunder, prepared on the 9th inst. for a retreat ? before the ave net of escape could be closed ? a most extraordinary ?aanifetrto, in which, like the Parthean in his (light, he east in his rear the poisoned arrows of an exposed and defeated tyrant. Protected by some two thousand men, hie retreat could not be arrested, and the rumor 01 the in that he had reached Vera ?cnz. aad embarked for that retirement in Venezuela, wluA^iie had left two yearn since " so reluctantly, and at the unanimous call of a grateful people." You will see all these flourishes, at which he is very happy in his manifesto; but as his ''prestige'' evaporates with this revo lution, their eloquent and sympathetic uppenl I will act ?n thoee whose indignation, for base betrayal, has oblite rated the recollections of bis earlier and recognized ser vices in the cause of the republic. If he wag protocte I by his guards iu a triumphal retreat to the sea ooast liw rear was closed up by pronunciauentos for the plan ef Ayutla, which reproves, while it annih lates his two years' reign of terror. In the interval between the lssu mg of "the Ministerlo de Gobernacion," and his Perote "manifesto," which api>eared in the Journa's of the 19th, fbe journals in the city began to breathe the purer at Mospber Aof a ''free press." On the 13th. the Styln, the ?nly liberal paper thai had, ' by its silence," been permit ted to be published, opened with a powerfu article, re citing the wrongs and outrages committed on the press, the interest f of the country, and the personal liberty ot its citi.tnf. Its inspiring lumcutations soon stimulated a gathei ;ng-in the AlasM da, and by three o'jlock many thousands of the then sovereigns ot Mexico assembled to listen to the cheering notes ol liberty. The doors of the Mexican Hostile had been previously opened, and some ftxty State prisoners, for suspected political offences, were let free to respond to the calls of the multitude tor a recital of their wrongs. The addresses, as you may (?appose, were animated, coming from such sources. They were tike the sweet warbles of a long encagoil bird that had escaped to the freedom of its native f irests. The last ?f these, whose prison doom had been unbolted, after a most exciting address on the personal wrongs endured, even to "hand cuffing and fetters," cried out ? "to the l'aluce to demand the arms of the National Ouard of the repuh. Mc, which had been transferred by Santa Anna to the hands of conscripts and a mereeuary soldiery." "Halt," May other voices, ''We have not yet fixed our signatures to the plan of Ayutla." This ceremony performed, by fomo ten or twelve ? probably leaders of the proposed movement ? the living masses of excited patriots inarched by the main avenue, San Francisco, to the Plaza. They found the Palace doors in possession of a guard, the fire of a few blank cartridges, and the exhibition of a piece of artillery, was deemed a response to a demand, which it was not prudent for an unarmed, though well organised body of civilizariH, to press. They preferred, therefore, another order, to repair to Madame Tosta's residence, the mother of Madame Santa Anna, and whose young husband. V'idal, had recently been Minister to the United States, with an advance of $130, 000 on the ministerial services he was about to render. The wife and queen mother, like Christina, who had eonferred the order of Charles III. on the roliring Kmperor, was known to have participated in her full share of the public spoil her position gave claim to. H< r residence, therefore, was the first mark ed on the list of public plunderers ? in which the plundered were resolved to claim a reclamation. The contents of valuables were soon made food fir lire in the rtreets. From thence the movement was to the Minister of Foreign Affairs. (Bonilla,) by the light of Madame Tostas' splendid state coacli converted into a ?loving lantern with a blare of lightwood In the interior. The work of desolation of the interior of the Minister's residence (the inmates having prudently escaped) conti nued some time from the Immense quantities of public npoii in deposit ? consuming rich furniture, a mosaic table valued at five thousand dollars, a library of fifteen thousand volumes, paintings, costumes. &c.. sc. In the latter category was the purple garment embroidered in Chi as one of 1 lie Grand Crosses of the Order of '? ...(,1 ? to.nrirMt Aollais. All. all were committed to the flames. The books, as they were thrown from the windows, were cast into Madame Tostas' carriage, and the whole were soon converted into a mole of black cinders. This admirably disciplined mass, steady iu but oue ob ject, retribution on their oppressors; prohibiting plun der, and respecting private property, moved successively to the residences of all the Ministers of State, excepting that of the Hacienda, who had come too receuily and too late into office to share in the \ spoil, and of Fomento, whose residence fortunately was in the public building of the Menerla. Two of the bankers who are charge I with sharing large ly in Santa Anna's abominations on the Tre.i aury, and the Univertal and Oiicinl Journals, were among the distinguished of this occasion. The-e two pa jiers were made to suffer what they had contributed to ? Inflict on the more liberal of the fraternity. They tyive been extinguished from the daily journals; and th" Moni'or. which had been suppressed on Suuta Anna's usurpation of power, and its editor, proscribed and perse cuted during his reign, tal.es their place. The day after these night proceedings ? all of which were closed by 12 ?"clock? solitude and silence reigned through the avenues ?f the city of the Axtecs. One wing of the army iu gtrri aan, through the management of Generals Vega aul Car ?rera, proclaimed for the plan of Ayutla. They presumed afterwards, however, to carry it out in the pretended ? rail, but rather by appointment of a Junta of Deputies trom the department. They assembled, and by a farcical ??lection, which was divided In its vote between the two Generals, ( Carre r a und Vega,) proceeded to nominate a provisional President. Two ot the body protested as be jond their powers, hut the provisional government (ho*. ?*rer, unsanctioned by the na'ion,) has restored order, and quieted all apprehensions of new outbreaks. The -populace have acquiesced, while the journals, now able to xpesk, are preparing the programme for future dispoel tions. by which the nation shall have recovered its liber 2' , through those distinguished patriots, who first raisod e standard of revolt, and who are now on their march en, and expect a peaceable entrance into the capital. In the meanwhile Carrera and Vegt are permitted to cxercise authority to preserve order iu Mexico, and tlieir manifestations of a disposition to do so are exemplified in removing or abating many ef the nuisances and most obnoxious decrees of 'antu Anna wli'ch irritated the op pressed. The nomination of Vldal, Minister to the I'm tod States, has been annallel, and the Envoy reiuuei to diworge the advance* on sei vices he never expee'ed to perform. His appointment from the first was considered a cover for the retreat of Madam Santa Anna's family iu advance of the greater ?xodas of the Israelite t'ro.n "ibis American Egypt. So you have a brief narrative of the tm days' events of a revolution or rm -ut- at the capital. Wo all feel as if the first great step in the cause of liberty has been made In permitting fre>"lom ef speech an 1 pub lication.

[From the New Orleans Delta, Aug. 26.] On the 8th of August, previous to his departure, Santa Anna published a decree, naming the Judge of the Su preme Court, and General Salas and General Carrera his successors. The people, however, would not liave a government of his choice, and so the garrison, the population of the < ity and the authorities at once pronounced. General Jii Vega, the hero of llesaca de la Talma , was chosen their leader. The plan of Ayutla was adopted, which is the Alvarez plan. Ueneral I* Vega at once issued his proclamation to the governors of the several departments, directing them to appoint two delegates from each State, or the purpose of choosing a provisional President for the republic. This all ocuiA-red no the 13th. On the lflth, the delegates assembled and elected Don Martin Carrei a provisional President, who at once entered on the discharge of the duties of the office. Carrera was one of the Cabinet Ministers of Santa Anna, being Gover nor of the district, and was of course opposed to the revolu tion. Uis election as President seeing to have caused great dissatistiiction. The Monitor, which paper is again resusci tated, declares that in the election of Carrera, General La Vega has virtually annulled the plan of Ayutla. because the second article of that plan provided that, su soon as the i evolution should be successful, the comuiamling officer of the successful forces should appoint one delegate from each State, which delegates should choose a President for the republic. Whereas, General Ui Vega was neither ii lender in the revolution, nor even a revolutionist, and instead ol appointing one delegate from each department, he appointed two. on the evening of the 15th inst. Santa Anna arrived in Vera Cruz, escorted by hlntiuides, a battalion of lancers, and another of light artillery. He was received with a national salute and great demonstrations of joy. The palace was illuminated: there was a display of fireworks and enthusiasm, aud a great quantity of gunpowder was burnt. Vera Cruz still remained loyal to the abdicating dictator. The Eco, of the ltith, nave an account of his arrival, but did not appear to be aware that he was on his way out of the country. On the following day, however, the address of Santa Anna appeared, in which, alter reviewing Ids course as President of the Republic since 1853, and giving a brief history of the present distracted condition of the country, and stating the causes which impel him to the stop, he takes his final leave of his native country, and states that lie goes into voluntary exile lor hi* country's goo 1 . ami that he had left the government in the hands of his ministry, as provided by the constitution, in case of the death or absence of the President. This proclamation slightly astonished the people of Vera Cruz. But they soon recovered from their surprise and joined in with the plan of the revolutionists. Santa Anna seemed to be In a hurry to get out of the country, and intended to embark on the evening ot the 17th. in the war steamer Iturbide, but there was a severe norther blowing, ami his embarkation was prevented. The soldiers of the garrison were drawn up in line, how ever, to receive his farewell address, which was rea l to tlieui Ii y their commander, (I'eneral Tumariz. We trans late it lor the benefit of our readers: ? Co.mpanio.nh isr Aims ? With the deepest anil most pain ful feelings of regret, 1 take my leave of you forever. In thus bidding you farewell, 1 conjure you that you do not depart from the strict path of honor and duty; that you continue to be the defenders of the nationality, as you were the founders of the independence.

In the retirement, where 1 hope to pass iny last days in the ijuiet of private life, the recollections of your firm adhesion to me, of the valor with which you sustained my government, and the hopes which I conceived, tliat you would some day bet oine the avengers of the outrages suffered by our loved country, will oe among the most pleasant remembrances of my life. farewell, and be assured of the eternal lov^ of your C0IUIItoU?Ml>ilRI?< ' ANTONIO 1.01'KZ l>K SANTA ANNA. Tlie soldiers tiled oft' in silence nfler listening to this harangue. aii'l passed the Paiiue, on the balcony of which Snnta Anna was standing. There does not appear to have been any demonstration whatever; no enthusiasm was expended. The uorthei' bavin# ceased to Idnw at live n'clook on tlie morning of tlie litlu the ex-President quietly ein barked on the war steamer Iturbide, which soon after (tailed nut of the port, and the Napoleon id' the West for the la ~t time. perhaps, looked upon the gol.ien chores ol his native land. The Vera Cruz /.Vo, in speaking of his departure, says: ? -His numerous and faithful friends will ever gratefully remember the Illustrious man, who has given the country so many proofs of his noble and disinterested patriotism; the last and most uotable of which was 'his abdication of power, and voluntary exile from the scenes of political strife anil turmoil tn Mexico, that he might give his country peace from her civil dis sensions, uud history will one day view this act with t'i ? impai tiality which his cotempornries cannot at pre*. . . Unit day will also arrive when history will doSautaAnua the justice he merits." On the lWh, after the depaituie of Santa Anua for Ha vana in the steamer Iturbide. the authorities of Vera Crux pronounced in favor of the plan of Ayutla a full a count of which will be found in our Veru Cruz < on es pond ence. DEPARTURE OF MADAME 9AKTA ANNA. Previous to his departure from the city of Mexico, on August Vth, Santa Anna caused the Diario, the othcial journal of the government, to insert the following as to the departure of his wife lor Vera Cru*, which had, uo doubt, the effect he intended: ? On Sunday last the most serene Madame Dolorez To?ta de Santa Anna left this city for Vera Cru*, in company with her mother, the wife of his excellency, Senor I.uis Vldal y Rival, our Minister l'leui|K)tetitlary to the Vnlted States, on the route to the neighboring republic, intend ing to make a tour through that country. The enemies of public order have for many days past circulated alarm ing rumors on the subject of this Journey of tlie Illus trious wife of the wi-e Chief of the State. In all eouu tries of the world the rulers have the right to manage their domestic nfta.is as it may suit their pleasure or tlieli interest. With us everything is uncommon, ex ceptional aud capricious; with n?, everything iJ com mented on. and in an air of mystery which puts society into a state of alarm. I-et it !>e knowu then, that the voyage of S. A. S., the ! ady President, has no otuer object than to accompany her mother. Let it be known that the beautiful wife of the General President docs not. as has been said, pro. cede 1 he tfig'.it of her noble consort. !<et it be known, in short, that Cen. Santa Anna, true to his reputation, to his antecedents and to his indomitable energy, will abandon the presidential chair when the nation shall say to hi in. we have no further need of you, or when death shall cause him to disappear from the sceue* upon which he now figui-es. S. A. S., the lady President, goes to Hi van*. She will remain there a tew day, and thence she will take passage on one of the steamers running 'jetween that port and New York. Her voyage i? merely one of plea sure she does not go in the character ot wi.e of cien. Santa Anna, but like any other Mexican lady who should go to v isit a country worthy of being seen aud of which we know the manner*, the custom* and the elements of prosperity and riches. FLIGHT OK SANTA ANNA AND THE CONDITION OK XKXICO. (From the New Orleans I>elta. Aug. 'Jrt.J Our anticipations are justified. Hie prophecies of our Vei a Cru* correspondent are fulfilled. Tbe hopes ol ill honest men who took any interest in the present or fu ture ot Mexico are gratified. Santa Anua, the would-be Napoleon of the west, is once more a fugitive from the justice of his country ? a battled de.pot without a single tiiend, except his stolen gold, in the whole eivilited world. ^ I rom the fir?t movement of tbe rebels'' in the South, we perceived the impossibility of Santa Anna's with standing the fury of the people agaiu-t his imbecile dy nasty. The insurrection was clearly tlie remit of a vast popular feeling which could not t>e checked by frand or violence. and ifs success is therefore neither unexpected nor sin prising. At the seme time, we must contest that we did not regard Santa Anna a- a base an I worthies, coward ? a white-livered enven who would surrender empire and name nod every hops of being mentioned in his nne," without one parting HI iw at the cn?uy to whom he owe- hi* misfortune..

In despite of the eagerness to sign the '"planof Ayutla" displayed by the entire people, especially by the abso lutists of a few months since, when the news of Santa Anna's precipitate retreat was known, the provisions of that plan were violated or ignored in the hasty nomina tion of Carrera for the Provisional Presidency by the con vention of delegates summoned by General La Vega. One of the sections of the Ayutla scheme, positively declare* that such a convention of State delegates as would or could be authorized to organize a national government, could be called only by the rommander-in-chie f of the libe rating annvi? a personage who was not conaulted at all, either by turrera or his friends. It is quite possible that Alvarez and Comonfort muv not apprrove of hi? appoint ment, and they are men wfio have a very original and forcible style of signifying their dislikeforany individual, high or law, or fur any measure that does not exactly jump with their wishes. The condition of the nation is very grave indeed.

The effect is, that no hope re mains of reaping this season anything like a remunerative crop of salt. The pans at lnugua are aaid to bo com pletely overflowed, and the realization of the next crop almost indefinitely postponed in consequence. At Crooked Island and Rum Cay the provision crops liuvc entirely failed, and the result is that many of the people are reduced to a state of destitution but little short cf actual starvation.

There are other instances besides tbo one cited by our correspondent in which the candidate opposed to the I'ebt bill hns been elected, and yet the vote dlrec'Jy on the bill has been largely in ils favor, in the same county. We can imly account lor this inconsistency by supposing that the Debt biil was a minor consideration with voters, in comparison with the ascendancy of one or the other of the two great parties.

One or two compa nies have changed their positions lately ? Cupt. Mc>ao has gone to lcit Bergeoin, and Mr. Thompson takes McRae'a place at Fort I'nion. A good many persons are soon to leave for the States, among whom are Col. Font leroy, Capt. Bowman and Whittlesey, and J.J.Webb, with their families, and Dr. Brvne. The new fort t f Allison and" Boothe, on the Santa Fe road at Walnut Creek, wu< pretty well advanced to com pletion; when finished they hope to open up a ' rade with the surrounding Indians, and be prepared to furnish any in want with piovisious and aid as they journey acro-s the plains and afford pleasure-seeking parties a rare chance to kill buffalo. The party that left this place recently on a gold hunting expedition, stopped at Allison and Roothe's ranch, and made quite a successful gunie hunt, and feasted on buffalo to their hea.t's content.?

I received yours of till (ith on the Jtnli. I did not ex pect the explanations aud reason- argued lu my com munication of the 11th of July to have been satisfactory to the President, for 1 felt confident that the President's course being dictated altogether by political policy which would not be successful without the icm >val of an e^ual number of Territoria1 oflicera from the North and from the South, was full? determined upon (ex party as it evidently ???) on tlio date of your letter of the 14th of June, and ! gave the statement of the facts, an! the rea son which Induced me to become a party to tho-e con tracts in the way of explanations, so that the facts and my reasons might be placed on (iie in the department. The Legislature lias deemed It proper and right to locate the -eat of justice in and for the county of Calhoux at the town of Calhoun? n town laid out on the reserve granted to the half-tireed Kansas indians. (in which nei ther of the parties tu the contracts heretofore submitted bv Governor P.eeder and others have any interest wluit soerer. i and surely they would not ht.ve done so If they had conceived tor one moment that by so doing they ap parently violated the acts of emigres-*. or the regulations of the department. I asked, for information, what act ot'Congreiv. and what regulations of the department 1 had apparently violate.!, and 1 consider that I had a right to expect that [ should receive such information, aud, as it is, has not been given I must think that I have not apparently violated tven the spirit of a single act of Congress or regulation ot the i?|ia'tinent. other wise the lufoimation uould have j-.-eu iui,?artel in your letter of the 6th in-t. The 27th section of the act known as tlie Vebraska and Kansas act fixes the tenure of office of the Judge* M the Mipreme Court in thc-e woria, "and they >hall hold their offices for the period of tour years, aod until their successors shall be appointed and <jualiOed.'' Xo power is given by the bUl to the President to remove. And if you will exuuiine the tenure of office of the Governor, the Secietary. the Mstrict Attorney aa<l Marshal, you will see :i marked diSsrrnoe. Tlie power to remove all and each of theae oflicers Is expressly retained in the<e Words, 'uulese MOtur removed by the President." (?ee the ?0. 21. 7 hn 1 29th sections pamphlet acts p. 2W.) I uiu-t think, if the Tavrlt-h language means snvtliing. that the PreaiMl has not tlie power or the light to re mow the Judgei of this Territory at hi- wli I and plea sure and, as the Territorial I .legislature ha? deemed it right and pi oper to express an opinion on the subject, which is entailed in the resolution- herewith enchxel.

Kinch, of the Argui, has won ior himself the admiration of the profession, and the esteem of the reading community. While the rent of our papers have stopped for the want of hands, he, with the aid alone of one compositor, has kept the Argiu going, and seems determined not to ''give up the ship." Mr. Leon ard, the editor, is sick, W. H. Forest, the reporter, is down with the lever, and nearly the whole duties of the office has devolved upon his shoulders. May he bear it gallantly to the end, and pass through the epidemic safe ly and sound! He is the only one left of all the old bands of the establishment that has so lar escaped. From Portsmouth we continue to receive dreadful ac counts. From two o'clock yesterday to four (two hours), there were sixteen deaths, and forty new cases! Is not this awful? The following are the latest deaths to date:? ?I. Tatum, Edward Whiting, Miss Drusillia Gayle, Mrs. Lieut. F. Whittle: Miss Mary E.

Garnett, prominent members ut the Howard As sociation office, are also down with the fever. We have received no papers of Friday from Norfolk all the journals in that city having stopped issuing. The number of deaths for the twenty-four hours end

FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL. MOKBl MARKET Mondav, Sept 3?8 1 . M. The stock market was not at all active at the opening thin morning. Rotations were very irregu rSm?tacd. sollm on tlm. ?* pto J-??? bo than buyers. The bears are desirous of putting out long contracts at their own option, but buyers on such terms arc scarce. Cleveland and To edo and Eric wtre operated in to the greatest extent to-day. Operators in the former for a rise do not seem to care much about the difference paid for buyer's op tion. Ouc per cent difference between cash and seller's option ruled at the first board. As soon as sellers get a little easier on their contracts in this Stock we shall see one of those tumbles which used so frequently overtake Erie just previous to the collapse.

' Simeon Draper's regular semi-weekly sale of stock and bonds will take place to-morrow, (Tuesday,) at 124 o'clock, at the Merchants' Exchange. At the second board the market was steady, but not active. For some days past Erie has been ope rated in more largely than any other fancy on the list, and the improvement since the middle of las week has been gradual. The market is in a very feverish state. An advance in prices appears to us entirely out of the question. The inflation now is more than can be easily sustained, and any unfa vorable intelligence from any quarter would cause an important depreciation. The transactions at the Assistant Treasurers office to-day were as follows:? ^ Paid on Trwuurr account 16tt'080 00 Received uo 41 Balance do 10,584 12 Paid for Assay ol1i<e. 35,030 58 Paid on disbursing cnecKs ' On the 3d Hut two bonds, of <1,00?, of the Scota and Hocking Valley Railroad Company, numbered 846 and 847, wew lost.

Holders of that stock do not attach the slightest importance to this meeting, and It is to them a matter of indifference whether the company accept the stock or not. A few months since holder* were in favor of a compromise, and would have compromised upon most favorable terms, but they have had several decisions since in our courts, and ultimately they will recover every cent of their claims. The new stock will, in the end, 1* placed on a i ar with the old, and it will all share alike in the future earnings, whatever they may be. The stockholders can arrest the cxi?nse going on In liti gation, or not. just as they please? there can be but one result. Tlte most important matter for all par ties interested just now to turn their attention to, is tliecompanvs earnings. Under the present manage ment every month shows a decrease in the receipts while the expenses are monthly increasing. One look at a train of cars, a* it is in motion is enough to satifv any one that the equipments of the road are all going to WTeck and ruin. The rolling ma chinerv is out of order, and rapidly going to deony. It wants some man at the head of this road who will show very different management, and at the end of the ve?r very different results. We named a man nearly a year ago, and every day since has only coa firmed the jiScioosne,, of the choice Joel W White "Esq.. of Norwich, is the man, beyond all option, who will put the New Ilsven ltailroad where it always ou?ht to have been, in the (rout nuik of dividend paying roads in the country. B. t Mr White cannot do it alone. He wanta four or five active encrgetic, working directors, who would, with him, not only employ their time, but their beads and their hands in extricating the company from its present emUrrassments. The road is now goinjr to niwvsfast enough, and the company is daily be Sg more deeply involved in debt Without ?ome immediate change m the management, the limn is not far distent when a new issue of tK>nds will 1* reonired to raise funds to thoroughly repair maJ to place it in safe condition for travel.

Since the last weekly report, about two millions of dollars hare been received by steam er from California, and the exports from this port, in the meantime, amounted to less than two hundred thousand dollars; notwithstanding which we see a decrease in the amount of specie on hand of nearly half a million of dollars. It will be seen by the above comparative statement that on Sept. 2, last year, the banks of this city had a discount line of $9,045,782 lc.-n, with a specie basis of $1 ,861 ,796 greater than at present.
