Having concluded the affairs that took me to the "I.and olGodand Uborty," 1 ain now on my way home, by way of the "Rver faithful Island." We Kft the 'Heroic City" of Vera Crux on th? Sth, And are now panting the Alacranea. The weather being beau tiful and the ship motionless, 1 disnel nnui by inditing you three lines. Ill fact, one must be duirg -omothlng on hoard ship?particularly an Anglo-HhipuNO-Muxiciiuo packet?or be bored to death. Never was there such it set?from the John Bull officer*, with a new stock of in o ?olenre since their -'unfile allies," the French, took Se baatopol, down to the dirty grea-era, and, lower still in tho scale, it possible, the brutal Catalans, who, having pinched together two or tliroo thousand dollars hy years ?pent in menial employments, are now returning home as first class cabin passengers, and giving themselves airs at once ludicrous and painful to behold, -'uch nabobs you never saw. In Mexico, affairs remain in a very so-an-ish condition On the 4th instant, an election for President of the re public wee to have boon held atCuerntvacs, hut up to tho departure of this steamer the result was unknown. It is ?supposed the mantle ol the ub'comling Dictator will fall upon Comonfort, inasmuch as (he "Panther of the South" ?Don Juan Alvarez?has so willed It. This they call an "?lection;" but, to my bumble perceptions, it has very much the appearance of a fresh dictatorship. The Mexi cans have yet to learn the meaning of self government. However, Comonfoit Is a protty tolerably liberal man, considering, and may have picked up a few ideas In the art of ruling in New York last 3 ear, though I do not think be went to the best school. Alvarez has been unite high horslcal of late. He has eoine out strong ngatnst the " proteotornte," which (to nse one of old Santa Anna's sot phrase,) -'the eternal of th enemies of their race, and tho violators of the integrity of the national territory"?the Yankees?were about to propose. Tho old fell w may rest easy on that *c ?re. The reported protectorate had got up quite an excitement in opposition--so much so, in fact, that the American Minister h id to come out In "a card," informing the woly terrified Dons they nc d be undor no alarm, for tho government of the I nited Mates would >.e 'em il?d first! Tbisstovyof the protectorate was, of curse, a hoax got up by the conservative party to strengthen their ranks hy ti e hostility which it would ex .to agiinst. the I'm or?who wee to be supposed to favor it. The base- of the treaty wore lithographa^^id -eatteiedbroad cast over the country. The following! a translation:? DAMES OF THK TREATY BETWEEN MFVKJO AND THE I'NITKD BTATF.3. 1. An alliance, offensive and defensive. 2. The I nited '-tates guarantee the Integrity of the ter ritory as it ronffilns by tlie treaty of Guudklupe and of MomIIa. and th.- guarantee refers a it. only to the Interior States, but alio to every infr. -:il fraction of Mexico. 3. The I nited states "hull send no immigration to Mex loo, hut that which tomes from Europe to the raited Btatos shall be made to flow buck en Mexico. This immigration shall enter Mexico with the ram1 rig'.i it now enters the United States, and it. .-hall have the right of suffrage alter live years residence, 4. The United States lend to Mexico thirty millions on the hypothecation of the property of th" ele gy, the a : tion of the government in the matter hetug taken as sufficient, even 1 hough the clergy tuay object. 5. The United States shall establish for its profit a han't of is-ue, with a capital of ft hundred mill: 11 , to a- .l t agricultural and mining enterprise. It will i > iiavc Its charge to open ways of communication hy canal- and railroads. fi. Custom house* shall be Oittbli-hed by common agreement , and there shall be no protective duties In Mexico; but the United States bind themselves 10 con sent impose protective duties so long a* necessary. There diull be no interior custom houses. The whole of this troity remain* subjjet t-i the Uuiie 1 State* sustaining it by means of a protectorate, which it shall exercise over the Mexican republic, and which shall extend to the sustaining uf tire established government. Alvarez bad been making a grand address lately to his ragamuffin* and to the veterans of the regular army?his lnte foes, but now followers. Tb'i document is vastly like (largantua's speech to the vanquished army of Hicrochole, being on the high magnanimous and '* big Indian me" order throughout. The old fellow, in recom mending the subdued veterans to the fraternal regard and attention of his I'in'.os, tells them that. " they, the regulais, bear mion their bodies honorable scars, re ceived In flgbting the Yankees," By an " honorable ?car" th'-old gentleman doubtless means a scar upon the tea' ot honor?for that portion of Vulnerable .tuff was generally the must exposed. Tbe old nigger (Alverex) took tore not to expose nny part of bis precious carcase to tho fire of those same Yankees. All the world knows how modestly lie held back at Molinn del Itey, when a ?ingle charge of Id* 8,fOO horse would he ve swept the attacking columns from the face of the earth. On the lltld September, Guam attacked San l.uis I'otisi and captured the outposts, but un armistice tvu Agreed upon tor six days, (iiirza had previously tascn four pieces of artillery from Farrodl. In the internal provinces everything wore a very un nettled aspect, and tbe present revolution going on in Mexico rosy lie l-igarded as the most complicated that has over happened ei en tin re. Should they succeed in ejecting a provisional I'resident, ten to one ho will scarce ly be installed before a fresh pronunciamento will depose him. And what then' Why, this thing will continue until both parlies are exhausted, and some int-rloper will step in and selzo upon Hie prise for a short time. Then,'as soon as one or both of the others shall have re covered a little, iliey will unite and kick the intruder out ?after which Iliey will sot together by the ear- ngsln. Anchor we shall have no satisfactory adjustment of tho TwWf - ? affn? for some while yet.

General Almonte was much spoken of, too, and It was positively asserted he would leave Washington for Mexico early in Novem ber. It might prove a fortunate thing for his country ?ould he be elected and permitted to servo out a (our year*' term in peace and quiet; but, alas! we shall never see any thing of the kind. It is too late to export any thing from the Mexicans manifesting a sound practical idea of government. In tld* care what ought to he done with them, or for them? 1* It not p-rfectly clear rlrey cannot govern ihemselve-r Doe* It not, therefore, be come their neighbors to lend tlictn a friendly helping hand. *ud if they do not choose to accept the pr iflered assistance, are not those neighbors bound, in self-pre eervata n to compel them to do no. ami to d"*ist, once and for all, (rum the row* and sliindie* hy which they have made themselves u regular nuisance to tho whole neigbborbr oil? In Vera Cruz there was some rejoicing amongst the a' Be* en account ol tho fall of Sebastiqiol. Quel gloire! The French gamins, es-rttcs and retirf d go/cn'-os were perfectly frantic with delight, and ?poke?or rather chattered?of their achievements, as though each one of th?'u had c 'in manded the si.go in person. Sturdy old John Ihiliisin displayed Its immense satisfaction in another manner, viz. :?by simply bemusing itsidf in leer and going drunk to bed. The fact is, Johnny Is cautious. He's afraid the news is too good to be truo and recollect* what an as* he made of himself last winter, wlnm the lord Mayor of I.on don prematurely announced the triumph over their "bar baric foe*." Joan Crapceu, however, with national vi vacity, is entirely oblivious of the " SeCistoixA est pris.'" At Vera Cruz 1 left a very indignant U. S. Consul. It had lately been offered for himself and tellow citizens the protection of the Spanish squadron there. This he avow ed to h" the greatest indignity ever offered an American Consul, and swore he would make it a personal matter with any tellow citizen who availed hlinsell of Spanish protection. It Is thought the Cou-ul had some private scruples In the mailer, for It is customary for men-of-war to be placeu at the disposal of the Consuls of all friendly nations under such circumstances as now exist in Mexico, nevertheless, it Is strange American citizen* have to tie under fspanish protection in our own peculiar seas.

Chicago and Rock island Is more buoyant, and sold this morning at 95}j percent, on thno Nicaragua Transit lias f-iflen off, instead of advancing since the recent report. From the movements, we should Judge that putties were increasing buyers' option con trncts, prior to putling up the stock.

The Engineer of tho State of New York, In his ollicial 1 report to the legislature, containing the returns of the railroads of thin Htate for the year ending Sept. .'iO, 18 >3) gives the annexed statement, showing the cost of the roads consolidated into'the New York Central Company i lorming the line from All>nny*1o Iluffalo:?

Tho re port d< ps not .-how how the enormous increase in aggre gate cost was made up, leaving that important matter to the Imagination of the stockholders. New York Central Railroad. Acknowledged coat of reads forming this com pany, .Sept. 30, 1853 $17,283,001 Do. do. do. Sept. 30, 1851. 26,907,374 Increased cost in one year... 97,624,283 It is well known, as wo have clearly shown, that a por tion of this great increase in cost was caused by taking in outside lines, roads which have no more to do with the through business of the Central Company than any road In New Jersey. Th? addition of more than seven and a half mill! ins of dollars to tho cost of this company's roads io one year, is a small aIIair compared with the atrocious swindle practised under the act of consolidation. The fraud of that net must appear in evory annual report made. Tiro legislature requires every railroad company to state the cost of its read, its capital, debt, Ac., and the Central Company Is obllgoil to stato tho cost of its line, independent.?! its capital, Ac. These returns mast as often as mado exhibit to its ignorant and unsuspecting stockholders the fact that the acknowledge! cost of the road ranges botweon fourteen and fifteen millions of dol. | lars, under the total of the company's capital, floating and funded debt. 1 he act of consolidation- added at one stroke of the pen that amount to the nominal cost of the road. , The not earnings of the company have to provide for the interest on fifteen million of indebtedness beforo the ttock can receive a fraction of a dividend. The actual acknowledged cost of the road exceeds by nearly two millions of dollars its capital stock. The fifteen millions sdded by the issue of bonds to pay for imaginary roads and for an imaginary value on roads actually existing, is equal to about forty per cent of the total amount of stock and bonds now outstanding. Tliis forty per ce it represents no real value any more than the two million.: of New Haven Railroad stuck issued by Robert Schuyler reprtbents value. The stock issued by that distinguished individual amounted to forty per cent of tho totul stock and bunds of the New Haven Company, and that issue depreciated the entire capital and debt of tbe company more than fifty per cent; and now when it is known that tho over issiud stock can he compromised at a dis count, the old stock and bonds continue enormously depressed. The central consolidation clique in Issu ing fifteen millions of bonds, showed a great deal more shrewdness than Schuyler, for they sndlltd the company with a debt which takes precedence of all stock, and secured a fair market vuluo for th ir bonds by compelling the stockholders to guarantee their l payment. Schuyler issued a security ot less actual value, I for It must lie classed with the old stock of tho New II a ven Comjwriy. Inlaw there may bo a great deal of dif ference between the acts of Ncbuyler and thoso of the Albany consolidating clique. The former has been com pelled to fly his country and live in some foreign land an outlaw, execrated by the widows and orphans whom be has beggared, while the latter '-ranks in all tbe elements of character snd business capacity among the best men In the State." If there Is any moral difference between the issue of two millions of New Haven Railroad stock by Robert Prhuyler nod the issue of five millions ofNrw York Central Railroad bonds, to pay for railroads which never existed, wc should like to see the distinction point ed oat. In our opinion, and in the opinion of all who clearly nilcrstnnd tire matter, they are both on a par, and they must exist in tho community where men guilty of eiilror arc sustained and '- ranked among tho best mou"?awry loose condition of public morals, to say tho least. Had the New York Central Hnilroa.l Company discovered a Schuyler among its managers ,who had fraudulently Issued five millions of stock, tho entire capital would have ben depreciated from forty to fifty por cent; but the lstua of the same amount of bonds, representing no moro v.due than Schuyler's stock, inflates the valuo of tho com pany's capital, anil tho stockholder.-! appear to rest per fectly contented. Tliey know not of tho volcano upon which they aro sleeping. We have sounded tho note of warning in season. If the stock was as mnch depressed as Erie we would advise tbe stockholders to hold on, and sec if something onld not be done towards reforming the extrarag.-- .ce i and mismanagement of ihe company's finances; bu. it is so much inflated beyond its real value, that those who wish to avoid the loss which must surely result from the present policy pursued by the directors, can cut them selves loose without any great sactlflce, and Bud luvo t ments tor iheir money in roads which not only have something to show for tire money expendcl in their con struction, but roads which earn the dividends paid to stockholders. The capital stock, /tended and floating debt of tho New York Central Railroad Company, acc rrding to tho in -t tellable reports, are as follows; New York Central Railroad, 1855. Capital stock $23,985,000 l anded debt 14,687,516 Floating debt 1,000,0)0 Total $39,553,145 Cost of road and equipments (see Engineer's report) 25,907,374 Fxcess of stork and debt over cost of road... $13,045,771 There Is no getting away from these facts. The last an nual report of tho company showed that the stock, Sept. 30, 1854, was $23,007,415, and funded debt $11,504,033. Since that time the company have sold the remaining $2,020,000 of lis convertible loan; havo increased Its ca pital stock $600,000 and added largely to its constructive account. It i? tho impression that the report for the year ending Sept. 80, 1865, will show an increase In the construction account vf more than two millions ofdol Utri. It is admitted that the floating debt is fully a mil lion of dollars, but we have no doubt the entire stock, funded and floating debt of the New York Central Rail road Company, at this moment is upwards of forty mil lion* (if dollar*, representing a road which did not ac tually coat, with all its extravagance, more than half that sun, ami which could now lie built for about fifteen millions of dollars. The following is an extract from a private tetter dated Chicago, Oct. 12. 1855. The writer is an accurate busi ness man and hla statement- therefore may lie c>n- ulerel reliable ? Our wheat market Is In a panic to day. The receipts are 100.000 bushels p< r day, and increasing. I hear from points iu lewa that the CouDtry is fall ot tea- is hauling wheat, and tbe warehouses filhd to their utmost. None of the roads in this eonntry can now bring the wheat that is offered to them. If the East can tako 250.003 bushels per day. lake Michigan will give it to them. Recelpta of corn and oats both very light. Block Eirliitngs.
