The steamship Illinois is now due at this porl horn Aspinwoll, with the semi-monthly mails one shipment of specie from California. The apprehensions that existed is the minds ol any as to the safety of the steamship Black Warrior, were allayed yesterday by the arrival of that vessel at this port. She left Havana on the 14th instant, and subsequently encountered several terrific gales, which caused considerable damage to her pperworks. Although entirely out of coal, she managed, by burning nearly all the spars and movable woodwork about the ship, to reach Old Point Comfort, where a supply of fuel sufficient to enable her to reach New York was obtained. The Black fTirnor was iu uavc icn v? uvi io??iu tvj?r? *y. but her departure has been necessarily delayed until the 31st inst. Our correspondents at Havana, writing on the 14th Inst, state that much real feeling was mani tested by all classes on the island with regard to tb: approaching departure of Ciptuin General Concha, who, it was said, would relinquish his post in a few Months. A preposition had been made for laying a submarine telegraphic cable between Havana and Cape Florida, but the Cuban government would not sanction it unless it had sole control of both ends of the line. Dr. Kane's health was still considered in a riticjd condition. Our Consul, Colonel lllythe, hid left his post for bume in order to complete a matrimonial engagement There were quite a number of Ameri:an visiters luxuriating on the island. The slave trade was flourishing, two cargoes having but recently been landed. The Spanish mail steamer from Cadiz was at (Jnarantine with smallpox on hoard. Thirty-five thousand boxes of sugar?old and new?remsined on hand. Freight had improved. Exchange on New York ruled at 64 a 6J per went discount.

Foreign immigration was etUl encouraged by government. Onr despatches from Washington are Interesting, The Fenate pa?scd the bill cstabllshlsg a navil depot at Brunswick, Georgia, and a resolution was adopted directing a survey of the Niagara rirer. Tbe House passed the bill increasing the pay of the officers of the army. It increases the pay of all officers and military etorekei per* twenty dollars a month, and the ration commutation to thirty oenta. It is supposed the bill will be amended by the Heaate ao m to exclude all officers above the rank of Colonel. Mr. Cbceter. the witness in the corrup toon case, appeared before tbe House, and having explained that this non-attendance before tbe Investigating Committee was not occasioned by a desire to disobey its mandate, he was discharged from arrest. It iasaid that the Committee of Ways and Means have perfected a tariff bill, which they will report in a day or two. K imposes a doty of ten per cent, ad raiorrm, on wool, sugar, hemp, lead and salt; all other articles remain as before, except those In the 1(N) per cent schedule, Whicb nre reduced to fifty per rent. A number of topics of interest cine no in the lagislamre Yesterday. The Senate Committee on Klection* reported unanimously against Mr. Barr's petition, in the contented sent from the Third district. The report will no doaht be accepted, and Mr. Sickles confirmed in his position a* the sitting ember. The resolution declaring it inexpc lient to mart any prohibitory liqnor law was debated and laid on the table. In the Assembly the bill creating a Hoard of Canvassers was discussed till the adjournment. We publish to day a correct report of the meeting of the ship Patrick Henry, fro* London, with the British bark Princess Louisa, off the Highlands. The last named vessel was in great distress, but eras immediately supplied with ten days provisions by Captain (lifforl, of the Patrick Henry. Owing to the fact that nine of Captain Clflbrd'a men were frost bitten at the Ume, he roaid not spare any, as desired, to work the hark into port, but oHhred to take all off and laad then from his ship. This was declined.

We giro a brief account of the affair in another column. Hon. John Barney, eon of the gallant Commodore of that name, of Revolutionary memory, died at Washington yesterday. As in well known, Mr. Barney was engaged for aomo time pant in getting eat a book giving his reminiscences of public events and notable men and women of bin own timee, for which U*k Mi Intimate acquaintance with the lead Ing pernooagiW who hare figured daring the pant half century emi nently qualified him.

Fleming, late of the brig Bainbridge, oosimenoed its sittings at Philai delphta yesterday. \ At the meeting of the Board of Aldermen last , evening, the tax levy for 1867 waa taken up.

Flour was heavy, while sales were moderate, with the turn of prioes in favor of purchasers. No wheat of moment was sold, but k holders continued Arm. Sales of new Southern white and mixed corn were made from city stores, s at 74o. a 76c.; from the Atlantic Docks Western mixed was at 72c. Pork waj firm, at $21 for new ' mess, and $20 for old do. Sugars were firm, but owing to the difficulty of delivering goods, no sales of moment transpired- Coffee was qniet, in view of the sale to come off to-day.

""P* America wiS England?The Change In the Policy of their Statesmen. : It is a cheering evidence of the triumph over policies aud politicians, which the instincts of the j people are obtaining in this country and in England, that the Eogliah press, and particularly those papers which are the recognized exponents of the opinioos of men of mark in London, has 1 assumed a tone of conciliation and respect towards this country seemingly far more hearty i and sincere than has ever before been witnessed in British journalism. With the exception of the London "Times, which has always been marked for its independence of men and measures, every other leading journal in London is looked upon as the organ of some one statesman or of some political clique. ' In its independence of everything except the ruling popular sentiment, the Times has, from the moment that the result of our Presidcntal election became known, thrown overboard many of its old ' crotchets in respect to our country and its ' progress, and assumed a tone of friendliness that stood in marked contrast with that of some of its compeers. But the politicians and their organs are rapidly following the lead of the Times, and even tbc Post?the admitted organ of Lord Palmerston, and the last that would have been suspected of any coquetting with the cotton power in England and Ame nuu?is ueguiuiiig w sex* uiiugis witu u uuraier virion, and to give utterance to sentiments that for many years have been foreign to its columns. The truth is, that the old and cherished theories of foreign policy in England are fast giving way to the pressure of public interests and public i opinion. Some wiseacres who are always looking for 1 truth in the owl-like vacuity of "the best inform' ed circles," pretend to find reasons for th'n change in a change of political relations between England and the' Continent, and a prevision on the part of the former of some coming necessity for support from the United States in a possible conflict with the despotisms of Continental Europe. This is all bosh ; for though the English nation, like every other wise people, desires the moral support of other enlightened communities, this desire never has been and never will be made the rule of action with any Saxon people. The history of that race in Europe*. America, Africa, India, and Australia, fas pThihStf^ and flfill nvhihit* in Sla rlpv^lrm*. mint, a lore of the practical, and an adhesion to its dictates, that has overpowered all other coo?idei ations. Whenever any branch of the Saxon race has been led by a mistaken enthusiasm to put in practice any erroneous theory, the progressive mass of the nation has quietly turned aside from the error in Its march, and left the theorists ulone in their defeat .It is procieely this that is happening at the present time. The old school politicians supposed that the progress of the United States was inimical to the prosperity of England, and their policy was so shaped as to meet and oppose our own in every possible way. Iiut the people of both countries, with their practical instincts have gone on developing the true theory of international well are: and the great majority of Americans and English having come to recognise the truth that the progress of each is coatributive to the prosperity of the other, the politicians have givea way. and the old English school, with Eotd Palmers ton at their bead, arc taking a new position in accordance with the spirit of the times. Tbey have already come to reoognize the great truth that what the world demands of the negro r>p? is thn onHnrit r?f pnltnn sliioh itnasl. can branch of the Saxon race in practically carrying out. They bare got to recogaise other great truth* in relatioa to thin country, which wo have no doubt they will soon do. The tide of trade ami tmrel between our Atlantic and Paefic coast* b (breed to seek transit aero** the I nth .mus of Amarica. There we find a degenerate mongrel race, whose incapacity for government, and internecine war*, render life and property insecure. Our people, obeying the Saxon impulse of practical utility, must and will carry peace and social order to those region*; and though the white neckcloth* of both countrie* may howl, and call it rapacity and murder, the practical instinct must be obeyed. It has ever been found that the Saxon, whether rallying under the star* and stripe* or the cro** of St. George, ha* home | for hi* motto, " the greatest good of the greatest number." Exeter Hall and the Tabernacle combined are powerle** to resist this utilitarian , apiru. There to another truth that lie* deep in the practical impulaca of the American people. The admimon of Cuba into the Union to not nought < fro? greed, or purely from a doaire to extend < territorial away. The elevation of the people of < that iidand to the right of nelf-government. and I their admtoeion an a aovereign State into the ? Union, bring* no profit to king or katoer. ae an I extension of territorial limit? might do under the < autocratic eyntcros of Continental Europe. The 1 adv< nt of Cuba to our political system i? an im- t pule* la the American heart, because ite practical 1 instincts tell it that euch to necessary a* a mca- < aure of defence, that it to a pnrpoee of practical f utility to both partiee, and would be consonant t with the great eat good of the whole civilized t ! world. Every American statesman for the part ii forty years haa recognized these fat to. and they are e entwined in the popular heart. The only reason h tbftt ite coofumoatioo bae not been long a4n<y fi rEW YORK. HKRALD, TUF attained is because cur Saxon nature has not admitted the practical nature of the Method proposed. We ere glad to see the Indira tie? of a new rale in the policy of HagHah ntatnn?i. to which we have alluded in the beginning of thie article; and if oar London compeers of the preee need any proof that the rale of popnlar instincts in this eonntry is far above politicians and policies, we point to the signileant fact that when the administration was abandoning its fanner policy toward Walker in Central America, and Maiey wac declaring war against him; when the news from Walker showed that he was in desperate straits, and his enemies were shooting that be must succumb, hundreds of filibusters were found, both in the North and in the South, ready to go aad join him. Even now that commnnication with him is cut off by the seizure of the steamers on tbe San Juan, three hundred are preparing at Grey town to fight their way to his camp, and hundreds more are on the point of starting from here. In this matter Marey has committed another of those many blunders that have left him without a shred of a party in this country, and have sunk him and the present administration at Washington beneath even the contempt of the American people. It is a curious contract, that while Marcy and other of cur politicians aie so widely mistaking the tone and temper of the times, Palmers too and some of the English statesmen are beginning to appreciate and adopt it. Speed the parting?hail the coming guest! Symptoms of am Opkra Excitimknt.?The coup de Ihtairt of Mr. Strakoach, in confining his advertisements to the three or fonr daily newspapers having the largest circulation and widest influence, has created a tremendous hubbub among the small fry journals, which now bids fair to create as great a disturbance as the far famed ' tempest in a teapot" The newspapers which bavfe not received the official announcements of the Opera, have teemed with attacks upon the manager and the artists; and it appears to be a settled fact that a man may not select the journals in which he chooses to advertise his business without being subjected to the most gross personal attacks. Mr. Strakosch is the first manager who has had independence enough to adhere to a resolution not to throw away bis money foolishly, and the impotent rage of all the little curs of the press is amusing to see. The empre-vano, however, is not to be crushed. ' The season has, so far, progressed in a satisfac- 1 tory manner, and the attacks upon the director, fminripri tinnn atn.tMrr.pntR Irnnnrn in hp fnlap will ' undoubtedly have a beneficial effect. They at * least help to create an excitement and to make 4 the public remember the Opera. The public, 1 aware that the manager is unjustly attacked, will 8 give him their sympathies, and thus the artillery * of the journalists will recoil upon themselves. n M. Strakosch takes advantage of this excite- 41 ment to increase the public interest in his season. ^ Like a sklliul magician he waves his wand and * forth comes a dtbutanU?a dtbulante with three of 4 heaven's best gilts?youth, beauty and geniua 1 Added to these, the Lucia of to-morrow?Ma- 1 dame de Wilhorst?has energy, will, perseverance ' and cultivation.

Adnaw In WMNdw Wnih f^a Bulla, Oho Bears, mmI Mm lUnu flnwaSaris Tbe latest news from Walker is decidedly interesting, and filibuster stock is rapidly rising in tbe market. Tbe great contest is between the balls end the bears, and promises soon to rival that between Jaoob Little and Wesley A Co., in Wall street, a short time since. Great attempts are being made to get up a corner in Nicaragua, and present appearances seem to indicate that ihe bulls are getting the best of rt just now, as tbey did in Wall street lately. The game is being played by strong hands, and there is certainly fun atiead. Morgan and Ganrison wear the horns now, and are using them to great advantage in support of General Walker. Commodore Vanderbilt goes in with the claws and the hug, and hopes with the aid of General Spencer, to bring his opponents down under an avalanche of Costa Ricans. It does not matter much which wins, as the fate of Nicaragua, and, indeed, of Central America, is settled, and it must submit to manifest destiny. We are informed that new views on the question will soon be carried to England, as an English baronet has been down to Nicaragua and stayed a month with Walker, just to see how the thing works, and what sort of an animal manifest destiny is. He has come back with a most exalted opinion of the American filibuster, and says there me not men enough in all Central America to whip him. Notwithstanding this British endorsement of Walker's position, the Tennessee will leave here to-morrow with three hundred recruits, and the Texas from New Orleans, on the same day, with an equal number, making in all six hundred more manifest d<?U nan&iip. col. litoe sailed two weeks since from New Orleans, with his one hundred and forty of the same kidney from Kansas. But our weather prophet sees new complications in this great fight between our steamBhip kings. There are three full blown generals in Nicaragua?General Walker, General Elenningsen and Gen. Spencer and but two of them have their public backers and bottle holdire in Wall street. Now, it is a well known fact hat here in New York we have the same trimsrirate among the steamship kings that there is imong the generals in Nicaragua. Commodore forgan is allied with Gen. Walker, and Comaodore Vanderbilt with Gen. Spenoer; but who s Commodore Law working with ? Let us see : V hen Law got stuck with his three hundred housand old muskets and other hardware, he ooked about him and found Col. Hennlngsen, an ible soldier and practical man. Henningsen bowed him how to turn his two dollar muskets nto ten dollar rifles, and the thing went on iwimmingly for some time. A larger market soon opened its prospective riew to George; so he stopped turning old musiets into new rifles, and sent Col. Henningsen off o Nicaragua with several howitzers and other lardware, to the value of about fifty thousand lollars. These have been of great service to Valker, and have made Henningsen General-inihief of the forces in Nicaragua. So it will be een that the other Commodore has a live geneal in that region, too, and in all the chances he say come in winning something yet George as a big gullet, and can swallow almost anyhing, even to a Nicaragua Transit Company. <ike the Laird of Ravenswood, he is no doubt iding his time; but all three of the Commodores re in the fight, sure. Look out for what may appen, and look out. particularly, for anoth r raise of the Grapeahok Lord Nafik*.?There is but one feeling here i relation to the new British Minister, and that re are sorry to say is regret In our time, everyody knows everybody, and we all know Lord iapier; who, though he may be the moat amia lc and loveable of men, and possess a very agrceble talent for a certain order of literature, is ertainly not the best man that Great Britain ad for the embassy to Washington. Many reams might be urged why the appointment was n unfortunate one; bat let them pass. We are II in uirinna here In remain nn crrwvl Mir. ial terms with the English that we are softy to ?e a second rate man like this poor Scotch lord, esh from absurd despotic courts, come to Washington, perhaps to set us by the ears as the luoderlng Dublin man Crampton did.

The public want them; so bring i^m out, gentlemen, and let us nee who's who, id what's what. Is there anything about G,-n. penoer in them?

The faote are simply that the attention of Co geese being arrested, and the tender conecieno of members unpleasantly rasped by articles 1 the press .generally?and more especially I the Hbiul?? on the subject of the notorious oo roption attending patent bills and land grants, occurred to some members to institute an lore tigatkm after the fashion of the one which a i ucceeded inextorting from Congress last year i connection with the Colt patent case.

This personage, who canno be suspected of a want of self-respect or sell esteem, and who no doubt knows the value of i Congressional advertisement as well as Mr. Wee ley himself, made haste to tender to the com mittee the volunteer statement that he bad beei improperly approached, and that members tool him pretty generally for a broker in bribery But, when called upon to specify the names o the Corrupters of his innocence, Mr. Simonton de clared that his honor forbade him to speak. Th< only parallel on record is that of the girl, wh< laid a charge of seduction before a magistrate but avowed, with tears, that her "feelinx'' would not permit her to name her seducer. Thus placed in a conspicuous position, Mr Simonton has borne up under his notoriety witi laudable fortitude. The journal with which h< is affiliated has taken care that the pnblio shall not be in darkness as to his feelings, and condi tion: do convict or borglax oq the point ol execution was ever more studiously published than this little gentleman. Nor is there any barm in this, if Mr. Wesley and the rest of them like it We merely take exception to Mr. Simonton'i notion that he is an embodiment of all the journalistic virtue and courage and genius in the country, and that Congress must be regarded as quenching the press when the Sergeant-at-Arms locks him up in an attic. We do not so view it We are not aware that the offence for which Mr. Simonton is now?very justly ?confined, was committed in a professional capacity. If it is usual for metropolitan newspapers to keep in their pay a regular bribery broker, the plan is new to us; Mr. Wesley must have the credit of the invention. If Mr. Simonton had been committed to custody because he obtained early news for his paper, or because he spoke fearlealy on this or that subject, we should of course defend him, so long as he allowed himself to be reasonably advised; but really it is too much to ask us to take up the cudgel in favor of this gentleman, who is screening two notorious rogues from punishment. and whose only claim upon our sympathy is that when his other business left him leisure, he wrote letters for a New York journal He muii ugui qub own dmuc, auu unit or swim according to hie merit*. For our part we are glad that Congress ha* pawed a law to make witnesses speak. Oar only kar is that it will not be stringent enough. The men who have committed the rogueries charged the press will not confess save under tremendous prenure. Fine and imprisonment will not pry upon their lips. When we hear that this or that witness will defy the committee, and stand -upon his honor, we may make up our mind that he is an accomplice, and dare not speak for his own sake. This " honor" is merely a flimsy cover for roguery. Every honest man will tell the truth. We trust, however, that in spite of " honor," and contumacious witnesses, the committee will persevere and will make a full and fair report of all that they can learn. We beg to direct their especial attention to the Wood worth Patent and the Minnesota I.and cases, and to suggest that the agents of these concerns in and out of Congress be cx Muiucu. it uiiuuubuu 0 luuuui IMJ uc ^uv upt'u, a question or two oo tbeae mat tern to him might be followed by beneficial disclosures. TIm United lUUa lia?W?lal <tw?stlan at Albany?Traable la lh? Camp. The question of the election of a United States Senator at Albany, in place of Hamilton Fish, la beginning to stir up the politicians among all parties and factions of the Legislature. The Seward managers appear to be in the predicament of the traveller who. counting up his hotel expenses without his host, fell considerably diort when he came to pay. It appears that as far back as eighteen months ago, in the first practical movements to the organisation of the republican party. Master Thurlow Weed and other managers of the nigger worshippers or Seward party at Albany, In order to bring over St. Lawrence, Jefferson, Madison, Herkimer, Otsego and other strong Van Buren democratic counties, pledged the office of United States Senator to Preston King; and bsnee die present trouble in the republican oamp at Albang. i nr particular reaaom nir selecting Mr. ITee too King u the representative the free noil Van Buren deserter* from the demooraMc camp were, that he wm from the great oounty of St Lawrence, the county of Silas Wright?that, to pome extent.
