The steamship VanUei^ilt, which left Southampton on the 14 th inst.. wan boarded by the yacht of the Associated Press oti Sunday afternoon, off Cape Race, but owing to the breaking down of the tele graph wires, in consequence of the recent severe storms at the eastward, the news did not reach us until last evening. The intelligence is three days later tb :;iat brought by the Atlantic; but in that brief interval a fearful financial panic had prevailed throughout Great Britain; commercial houses in all directions went down before the storm . and cotton declined three cents a pound, as compared with the prices of a week previous. The crisis culminated ou the 12th irwtant. when the government suspend ed the Charter act of the Bank of England, and authorized an unlimited issne of notes. The effect of this movement was quickly felt at every point? the excitement ceased, and business affair* as mimed somewhat of their usual quietude. Parlia ment wan to assemble immediately. Cotton re covered one cent aLd a half of the decline, and the market closed with an advancing tendency. Bread stuff* were dull, and flour had fallen sixpence to one shilling. The details of the news from India had reached England It was reported that Lucknow. which had been relieved by Uavelock. was again besieged by fifty thousand Sepoys. commanded by Nuua Sahib. The massacre at Delhi was horrible. All the people found in the city were put to the sword. By the way of Turks Islands we have advices from bt. Domingo to the 14th ult.-Aot bo late as those previously received, but, nevertheless, in the dis tur'ed condition of affairs in that quarter, quite in teresting. The struggle hetween the Baez and San tana factions was likely to be prolonged. Great d4smay. however, existed among the partuuns of Baez in tiie capital, as his troop- had been defeated in th?ir i-ortis? by the forces of Santana. The Pro v -ional government were al?out to attempt the re < iptnrr of Kamana. The exj>ort of i at tie from all t... ports under control of the Pro\ Uional govern ment was prohibited by decree. Our correspondents at Port nu Prince, Hayti, writing on the Cth and 13th inst., state that the basinets n-ason lutd commenced with an over impor tation of American provisions, awl the market was consequently dull, but at tls- last date there were eigna of improvement. The money market was strin gent. The value of the 116 doubloon had fallen to 1190 (Haytien currency ) and was downward. Coffee came in freely, and rated at per hundred weight. lx>gwood wa? plenty at >7 75 per ton There was not much dosbt entertained of the final acquittal of ('4|>t. Mayo and his steward on tfceir trial, on an al leged charge of introducing counterfeit money, as it was pretty clearly believed that native houses were in the habit of importing very large quantities of fraudulent bills. All parties wished for the presence r>f a man of war on the coast, owing to the insolence of the native officials to foreigners. We have new* from Belize.

Napoleon's last residence, was still used as a corn mill. The officers ?f the Missis, sippi had been entertained at a grand ball by Mr Kimball, our Vice Consul. Senors Escalante and Molina were yesterday for mally received by the President as Envoys Extraor dinary aud Ministen^Plenipotentiary from the repub lic of Costa Rica. Their address to the President, and his reply, both of which contain atrong points with reference to Central American affairs generally, and the Transit route particularly, are given in our despatch from Washington. The Police Commissioners have determined to ap point one thousand special policemen to do duty on election day. This will practically evade the injunc tion served on them, restraining their filling up the force with new men until the 28th inst. The prepa ration of the late offices of the General and Deputy Suj>eriiitendents for accommodations for witnesses is rapidly progressing. Tl?e workingmen yesterday assembled in the Park and at Tompkins square., and resolved to ask work of the Central Park Commissioners. A deputation waited upon tlie Board, in session in the afternoon, and sent in a communication, but no notice wis taken of It. The office was strongly guarded by policemen to prevent any outbreak. After nearly twenty years of litigation, and final decision by the Court of Appeals, attended with immense eo?t and immense fees to lawyers, a large portion of the Trust funds was paid over yesterday to the legal claimants. The deposit of J. J. Palmer, special receiver of the North American Trust and BuAuig Company, in the New York Life and Trust Company, amounting to about tfiOO.OW a $700,000, was yesterday withdrawn and paid over to the holders of the company's trust bonds on ac count of their claim, awarded by the late decision ot the Court of Appeals. The balance of the assets in the bands of the special receiver, amounting to about the same sum , and consisting of bonds and mort gages on real estate, wil be paid over rateably to the holders as soon as collected. Only ? portion of the fuuds thus thrown into the market have been re-invested here, the largest portion having been en gaged to go out by the Arabia to-day. The reci pients, Messrs. Palmer, McKillop, Dent A Co., of London, will doubtless be glad to receive even a portion of their old and long contested claim. After the President of the Board of Councilmen declared the Board adjourned, on Monday afternoon, a number of absent members nude their appearance and a meeting was organized, when considerable routine business was transacted. Several bills for the erection of polls at the late election were laid over, and a number of polling places for the ensuing city election were selected. A communication from Peter Cooper, relative to the employment of the laboring classes, was referred to the special commit tee previously appointed. A resolution offered by the President was adopted, requesting the Police Commissioners to procure suitable lodgings for the poor in the vicinity of the station houses, and asking them to supervise the matter during the winter. Councilman Mitchell's resignation was laid on the table. The bill from the Board of Aldermen in favor of paying Stephen B. Branch for his services in establishing the nativity of Mr. Matsell, was lost for want of a constitutional vote. The Board will meet again on Friday afternoon. Stephen H. Branch yesterday petitioned the Ten (Governors for leave to go to the Almshouse. It was suggested that some employment might be found for the petitioner, and the document was referred to the appropriate committee. We hope something will be done for Mr. Branch. He has been harshly dealt with by the politician* in and ont of the Common Council, and the Governors cannot do better than follow out the suggestions alluded to. Some burglars last night broke into the United States Isjuded warehouse in Greenwich street, near Beach street. The police of the Fifth ward pursued the thieves, and officer Fields shot one l**fore he would surrender. The ball fractured the jaw in two places. He thcu surrendered, and was taken to the station house. The two accomplices escaped. The rogue* had two hundred and two gold and silver watohe- selected already to hag. The watches were conveyed to the station house. The new Venexnelan Consul for New York is Senor t.uzman Blanco. He left this city on the IHh inst> in the Watson, for l-aguayra, with despatches from Senor Rivas, the Venezuelan Minister, to President Monugas. Ou his return he will assume the duties of his new office. Senor Blanco is, we understand, the son of Vice President Guzman, who was the kadtrof the liberal party in 1S4*, and ?ho|terformed the famous Cromwellian act in dispersing that body in that year. A detailed account of the horrible tragedy at Port Jefferson. I?ng Island, on Saturday last, may be found elsewhere in our columns. I>r.

The news from England, which we publish to-day, if the most important that has ever bee a l>orne westward across the Atlantic. The action of the American crisis upon the English com munity had reached ita height on the 12th instant, when a universal panic took possession of the public mind in Great Britain, and on the next day the government Issued a Treasury circular suspending the Bank act of 1844, and authorizing the unlimited issue of paper money by the Bank of England. In this event, the viewB which the Hkbaxj) has expressed for a long time back? views which were founded on a comprehensive, logical and rational study of the state of affairs, both on this continent and in Europe, and a careful sur vey of the ramifications of material interests, unbiassed by the hopes or fears of interested parties? have been singularly and truthfully borne out; while the efforts of all the jour nals. from the London Timet down to the New York Courier and Enquirer, have l?een ceaselessly employed to convince the world that with their little brooms they could repel the advancing waveB of the great financial tempest. We publish elsewhere a succinct account of the several suspensions which have been made by the Bank of England; but the present one must not be confounded with nor its effects judged of by those. Commerce was not king then as now; nor did England have, at the be ginning of the present century, a young and powerful rival who could dispute with her for its crown. The present suspension is far more than a simple bank failure; it is the failure of the whole monetary and currency system of the empire, and will produce the widest spread and most lasting effects. The Bank act of 1844. con trived with all the skill and experience of Sir Robert Peel, who began his career with the gold bill that brought al>out the resumption of specie payments in 1821, after twenty-three years of bank suspension, and which was counted upon as being the great preventive of the very thine that has now occurred, is demonstrated to be as weak as all the other devices that have been brought forward to stay the crash that comes upon the immense system of bank credits whenever public confidence is withdrawn. Mnch of the supremacy of England's mer chant princes will now pass away from them, and pass into the hands of their younger rivals on this ride of the Atlantic. Her merchants have not the recuperative energy possessed by our own: and though the measure she has now adopted as a palliative for present disaster may afford relief for a Jime. she must go through the struggles of a resumption of specie^ pay mints, which may produce effects as perma nent. though less immediately evident, as those of the panic. For these struggles she has not those vast resources that exist with us in our surplus crops of cotton, wheat and olber pro ductions of our vast fields and varied climates. Any speculations as to the effect of a recur rence to an utlimited paper issue In England j npon trade would be premature. It will be seen from our advices that the immediate effect was to cause a reaction in the declining tendency of cotton and other staples, as also In the public funds. Exchanges between Europe and Ame rica have now bccome utterly deranged, and what may be their course and their effect upon trade can only be known when we learn the re sult of the license to issue paper, now given to tho Bauk of England.

We learn from Washington that fears are en tertained by the British Cabinet that Mr. Bu chanan will recommend, in his coming message, the abrogation of the Clayton-Bulwer treaty, and that in order to delay or defeat such a pos sibility Sir William Gore Ouseley was sent to thiB country, and iB to be followed by a new French Minister, appointed also to the Central American republics ? Louis Napoleon having joined Palmerston in the policy of adjusting the equilibrium of America. The sudden importance which Louis Napo leon has discovered, of having an agent in Cen a tral America, where heretofore France has not been represented, and this sending him to his post by the way of Washington, together with the attention that has of late been given by the French journals to Central America, are direct evidences of the part France has agreed to play n the new Palmerstonian programme for check ng the southward progress of the United States. Palmerston, in fact, standB just where : Lord John Russell stood when the Clayton- j Bulwer treaty was negotiated, and has clung j with great pertinacity to the British iuterpre- j tation of it, which he yet hopes to carry, through J the policy of delay. His only fear is that Mr. ! Buchauan will take an open stand in favor of its abrogation by this country, as, during the discussions last spring, the Secretary of State, in view of the discordant interpretation put upon it by the two governments, proposed this should be done. Such a course is not at all relished by England, for then this country would be left entirely free to form its own policy in regard to those republics, while now, if they can but partially sccure the British interpretation of the treaty, our hands are tied by the joint action. The idea of a balance of power in America is an old one with English and French statesmen; but hitherto it has met with signal defeat. It was the prime motive of the Elliott intrigues, of white hat notoriety in Texas, during the dis cussion there of the question of annexation. It was the game that Chatfield was sent to Central America to play when he seized Tiger island, and BuJwer wrote him the celebrated letter tell ing him that the Cabinet at Washington was a weak oue. and he could play boldly. It stimulated Pakenliani. the British Minister in Mexico, to arrange with Trist. through Manning Mackin tosh, the terms of the unauthorized treaty of peace, by which our conquests there were given up. to the great chagrin of the Mexicans them selves. and to the retardation of our progress for fifty years at least. It caused the seizure of the Ruatau Inlands from Honduras, and the im posing of conditions upon their return that looked only to their possible future admission into our Union. It has t>een the cause of every effort to get us into a joint meddling in Central American affairs, the Webeter-Crampton pro ject. the Clayton-Bulwer entanglement, the pro posed joint protectorate for Mosquito, and nu merous other schemes, out of all which we have happily got, save only the unwise Clayton-Bul wer scheme, which is still un incubus to our government. This, however, they wish and hope to fasten on us, according to their own interpretation, too. and accordingly have selected a gentleman who is supposed to lie a personal friend of Mr. Buchanan to go first to Washington, to befog the question there, and thence to Central Ame rica, to carry out still further the intrigue* of Mr. Wyke, the acting Charge of England in these republics. The new British Minister to Central America hits lieen selected not lie cause he belonged to the ruling political clique j in England ? which he does not ? nor because he is distinguished for any diplomatic ability? which he has not been ? but purely because he was supposed to be less distasteful to us. as he married an American lady ; and Itecause. being a personal acquaintance of the President, he might, perhaps, find out what he intended to do, and perchance induce him to say nothing agaitvt the Clayton-Bulwer treaty in his next message. Mr. Ouseley Is to lie assisted. however, in Washington and Central America by a cunning agent from France, who ha* won his way to imperial favor by abusing the United States and praising the much more advanced civiliza tion of the Central American communities. Mobs. Felix Bell} will go out charged with in rt ruction" from the French Minister of Com merce. as well as from the Minister of Foreign Affairs. His principal recommendation for this post seem* to have been the publication in the Jhmt Cbnltmporm int. for J tat. 1856. of an article entitled "On the Anglo-American Coptlict. and the Equilibrium of th?? New World," which lias since been republished, with additions, in pamphlet form. In this article the policy of the United States is cha racterised by every odious epithet of which language is capable; and the American charac ter is painted in the most repulsive colors. The United States, he affirms, "in the hot lied of religions aberrations, where th^ most mon- < strous sects find ready aderenta; where the peo ple are divorced from every moral sen*e and every Christian sentiment; where the elections arc carried revolver in bund; where the public law of tfurope Is trampled under foot;" and where, in short, every vice flourishes and every virtue dies! On the other hand, thi- amiable i phik'i'opbcr finds nearly every conceivable vir- I tue, the elements of the most exalted morality. ' sound Christianity, true conservatism and the requisite* for admN-ion into the rank of Euro pean civilization among?t the people of Central and South America! "It is this Christian clrili ratlon." he exclaims, "of Central and South America which now app< als to our jostle* for security against Invasion from Northern lmr barlsm!" The discriminating IMIy propose* a grand combination against the United States, on the part of these anarchical republics and the Powers of Europe: and a notable feature of his plan is to induce the S|?anM)-American go vernments to adopt restrictive measures to wards Americans, while offering liberal en couragements to Europeans. Such is the scheme, and such are the agents to carry it out. that Palmefton and Lou la Na poleon have jointly 4? vised. Lord Napier will hardly move the questions in Washington more than Is absolutely necessary, and Mr. Ouseley, it is hoped, will !k? able to induce Mr. Buchanan to aoquirscc in theClayton-Bulwer treaty a lit tle longer. The coming movements in Central America will be of great importance, for on them may hlngtfmany of our future questions with the European Powers, and for this reason It is necessary that we should send down there not only a Minister of quick perception and ability, but one who can hold social and per sonal intercourse with the leaders and the peo ple of those countries, and not only nnder e'.uuO, but be uudsr?tvvd by tuvu. We want ' no more Borlands or Wheelers, or Joneses neat there. The missions to the countries of Spanish America are of greater importance than those to European capitals, and should no more be look ed upon as a pleasant sort of Botany Bay for pertinacious partisans and unscrupulous appli cants for place. flow the British Public were Deluded. A question often presents itself in these times to imagining minds. It is? How were the \ British capitalists and their agents, shrewd men I and well versed in business and other rascali ties. bo thoroughly deluded and humbugged as they seem to have been with regard to the con dition of business in the United States, and more especially with regard to the stability of the principal railway stocks? For it is quite plain that the panic took ! everybody by surprise in Europe: no one iu England seams to have had the leant Inkling of what was about to happen. The Urst idea, when the news of the beginning of the great fall in railway securities reached England, was that certain stockjobbers here, aided by the Nkw 1 ore Herald, had succeeded, by misrep- I refutation, in knooking down certain stocks for gambling purposes; and that as soon as 1 these gamblers had made their pile, the stocks would return to their old level, and business would go on as before. When this theory was disturbed by events, as it very soon was, others were adopted in its place; but from first to last the British public, as a whole, seems to have been hopelessly blind to the real state of the case, and neither to have foreseen it before hand. nor even to have realized it when it was a fact in the act of accomplishment before their eyes. "W hat is the secret of this singular mys tery? Ihe key must be found in the conspiracy which was formed between several newspapers of this city and the principal foreign bankers, for the purpose of hoodwinking and ? to use the right word, though strong? swindling foreign capitalists. For the last two years all the jour nals ot New \ ork, with the single exception of the Herald, have incessantly urged upou pub lic faotice the value of all kinds of corporate property in the United Sates, and the excellent thing it was to invest in stocks of some kind. For two years the burden of the song of all these newspapers has l>een a prayer and a counsel to the public abroad and at home ? to buy stocks, especially railway stocks, at any price. The strain was of course kept up by the bankers who had stocks to sell. For two years the bankers' circulars have preached the same doc trine as the papers? namely, that everything was going up. that railways were the best pro perty iu the world, that they were ull earning enormous dividends, and that a man who want ed to double his money had only to go into the market and buy. This view has l>een pressed on public notice in every form and shape; ora tory, statistics, argument, declamation have all been pressed into the service; no unfairness has been a matter of scruple for the purpose of dis crediting those who were not iu the great Bull No* against the Foreign Breeches Pocket. Incidentally to the stockjobbing interests, to serve which was the chief object of the riot, the commercial developement of the country was also a subject of concern to the conspirators. It was proved In the confederate papers that trade was never so flourishing, and that nobody, not even the dry goods dealers or the bankers, was in the least degree expanded, or unduly in flated. This was repeated in the bankers' cir culars; uud the perfectly sound condition of every branch of industry was elaborately proved by figures. II anj one ventured mildJy to suggest that he did not think floating debts a benefit to railways or overtrading to merchants, he was frowned down as a maniac. Upon the IIkrald especial ly did the wrath tff the conspirators fall in tor rents. No term of alwse. no insinuation of fraud, no suggestion of black mail, was spared to satisfy the public that our warnings ought to go unheeded, and our predictions be scoffed at. For more than a year not a mail went out to England without one or more earnest appeals to English capitalists nnd mer chants to suppress that mU:hievous ptt p? r, the IIkkald; to discontinue their sub scriptions. to get It out of sight, to keep it awuy from the moneyed men of England. The Anglo-American bankers did us the honor to consider our MJppression in England as al most essential to the success of their schemes of stockjobbing: and very vigorously, no doubt did they struggle to achieve their purpose! Th"y succeeded so we ll? they obtained per mission from so many to substitute the New York papers which were iu the plot for the dreaded Herald? that when the crisis came. It burst like a thunderbolt on the British public, and found no man prepared for it. The Hekaldm readers had been prepared for it long before ; but those who had relied for in formation upon the confederates of the Anglo American hankers were of coarse taken by sur prise, and suffered accordingly. Fate seems to lie awarding to the-,, con-pira t<.?rs a very different reward from the one th?y i'*|K*ctod. They calculate, with the help of their pot papers. to be able to aell enough rot ten Mock? to the English to make a good thing for all partis concerned ; hut the fortuue in long iu coming, and hard knock* are plentiful Of the two leading daily papers which were mainly instrumental in getting ?p t|K, p|,)t t|H, ?liict proprietors. Mr. Wesley, and Mr. McEl ruth. have l>oth unfortunately failed ; and cloat on their Iwcli the proprietors of a largely circulated pa|?er which combined trade with piety ? Hew Bowen A McNamee? hare alsobe come insolvent. Another chief proprietor of another leading paper? which was also in the plot ? ic now likewise on the verge of Insol vency. Now the banker* are catching It. E\ery mail we hear of this or that Anglo American house? they were the loaders of the plot ? going by the hoard; anil according to the news hy the Vandorbilt, published in an other column, there Is probably not one of the original conspirators left. It is a sorry business; a losing one for all sides, a winning one for none. The English have been deludrd. hoodwinked and swindled; l?ut the rogues, after all, have netted nothing by their trickery. Tin. Kaxsa* ENTANni.rMKMT. ? The late Le compton Convention has tangled up the Kan itnbroglio a thousand times worse than it was before. All tlje leading democratic organs. North and South, are running foul of each other like a collection of vesnela large rraft and small? adrift in a gale of wind. "II is a mighty pretty quarrel as it stands." and we shall not atte mpt to spoil It. The kernel of the whole question we have already defined, and It Is WJuyij uo*> -that the i*vouiytua proviaivu Ivr ? the submission of the test question of "slavery* or "no slavery" to the people will answer the purpose, provided always there is a fair bona jfcfa and honest election. In the meantime the anti-slavery denunciations levelled at the Le compton constitution makers by Mr. Forney's organ and the home organ of Senator Douglas^ and the New York Tribune, the pro-slavery apologies of the Albany Argiu, and the fire eating jeremiads of the Richmond South and New Orleans JMta, are all boeh. We must await the action of the parties concerned i* Kansas, and the show of hands in Congress, be fore we can undertake to threaten anything or promise anything. Perhaps the President's message may throw some light upon the sub ject. Let us wait for that. Thk Bui m.i anct of Impudknck. ? John N. Genin is a cool one. He has almost as muoh impudence as his old prototype, Barnum. He has advertised for the past three or four dayB in our columns a great auction sale of furs at hie place, No. 358 Broadway, and has occupied the usual space for such advertisements, at the usual price. Not content with this, Mr. Genin sends us a request for an editorial of a startling character in relation to this auction. This i? quite as strong a piece of impudence as whe* he nominated himself for Mayor. With just as much propriety might we send to Mr. Genin for a startling present of muffs, cufife, capes, gloves and what not. This is precisely the method that was adopted by old Barnum when he was a bogus millionaire. He would importune us privately for favors, and then go about the hotels denouncing us in the most atrocious manner. We advise Mr. John N. Genin, with his auc tioneers, Messrs. Herts & Moss, to sell off as many of those muflfe, cuffs and capos as possible at the best prices they can get. That will do them much more good than writing to the papers. THE 5^?2L?ws.
