" 1L _ ... 1? - NEW YORK HERALD. New Vork, Sat unlay, March !J0, It<4T. O r Illustrated Weekly. The Weekly Herald will be ready at 9 o'clock thia morning. It will contain the late very important news of the massacre of the Americans in New Mexico; the latest intelligence from Vera Cruz and Gen. layior ; toe latest naval intelligence ; the correspomience between Col. Benton and the Presideni; the proceedings of the State Legislature; important and interesting Washington correspondence; theatricals; a table of mail distances in Mexico ; the reception of Hon. JohnC. Calhoun in Charleston ; New York markets to the last hour; editorials on the subjects of the day; a table of the pay of U. S. army officers; and a variety of other interesting matter, besides our usual collection of financial, political,commercial and miscellaneous news. It will be embellished with an accurate engraving of the town of Marin, near the pass of Salinas, | in Mexico. We desire to inform our patrons that that section of the new post office law,charging three cents on transient newspapers, will not apply to the Daily or Wttkly Herald, if they wiil leave them in our office to be mailed. We shall keep bogs for their especial accommodation, and forward them from the "office of publication." By this plan ! the postage will be the earne as heretofore. Single copies 64 cents, or $3 per annum, in ad- 1 vanoe. Arrival of Use Steamer. The city was full of reports yesterday of the arrival of the Hibernia at Halifax, and of an express in this city from that place with her news. 1 The steamer had not reached Boston last evening, ' but the speculators contemplate beating her full twelve hours to that city. It may be that her news Is already in town. Take care! The City of New York?The Put?The Present?an<l the Futars. We recently published an artiole on the present prosperous state of the city of New York, 1 and the whole country, and augured, that we are now entering on a career of speculation and prosperity that will continue for a number of j years, unless some contingency should intervene I t o prevent it. While, however, wc direct ourjattention to the present and the future, it is as well, perhaps, that j we should occasionally recur to the past, lest we might in a few years outlive our memories, ard be bereft of any link by which we could connect ourselves with what passed within a comparetively short time. Wo shall, therefore, brush up 1 I no uicuiuiics ui uui teaucis, aiiu uud mem hack a few years, with the view of illustrating I the city ol New Yotk then, and contrasting it in tts present state of extension, opulence and popu- | lation. We shall go no farther back than the year 1808. From that year to 1814 the British orders in council?the Berlin and Milan decrees?our own nonintercourse acts?our embargo, and finally the war with Great Britain, acted on the United .States, and on this city in particular, because it was the focus of the country, as does a sudden and violent squall on a ship at sea. It threw us on our beam-ends. The course of events in those years occasioned great and irreparable loss to our merchants,and paralyzed their movements. South street, and the wharves on the East River, which before that period presented a busy scene, were, comparatively speaking, deserted. The same inertia was visible in Boston, Philadelphia and Baltimore. AAer the war was over, however, matters assumed a different aspect. Energy and enterprise once more asserted their sway, and the gloom a id despondency that for many years hung like a black cloud over our city, was dispelled by the { sunshine of peace. This.was manifested in many ways. Commerce was relieved of the iron fetters j vhat controlled it. New York sent her vessels and her seamen to all parts of the world ; packet , ships were built and traded regularly between Liverpool and New York, departing lrom each port as regularly as they do now, and creating as ; much excitement on their arrival here as they did a few years ago, before steam power was api ed to ocean steamers. I The trade with China, which, before then, ( was small, grew into importanco under the cn- ; terprise of John Jacob Astor and other*., and continued successfully by Thomas H Smith. The Russian trade j was pushed bv Samuel ilicks, Mr. Jones, and others. The South American trade flourished under Peter Harmony, G. and S. Howland, Foster and G. raid, and several others. The most extensive I importing and exporting merchants at that time were Jonathan Ogden, Archibald Gracie, J. Wad dington, John Taylor, John Mason, A. Mitchell, ani some .others. Whitney, McCoun, Storm, : Tooker, Nevius, and othors, controlled the grocery trade. The jobbing business was in the hands of .Smith Crays, Laverty, Kobbins, Kelly and others. The auction business was managed ; by the Hones, and so well was it conducted, that the prices current at their salts governed business in other cities. Others, among whom were Peter j Remsen, Goodhue, Ta'bot and others, entered I into it, and received consignments of whole cargoes of teas, &c .which were owned in other ports, I but transmitted to them for sale. fjThus on from 1820 to the present time, our steamers an>l packet ships have increased in numbers, magnitude, and splendor, that have no parallel, attracting and concentrating at this port the chief business of the continent. In the meantime, the packet lines, and fine ships of our sister cities, were not sustained, and have mostly witharcd away. Should we be exempt for the next twenty years from the desolations of war?should both politicians and Congress cease their agitations, our progress up to 1865 promises far more brilliant results to our city than we have ever realized ; and h ere let us -revert for a moment to the progress in ' population, even under the vicissitudes of the period we have mentioned, to 1845: ? In 1806 our population 76,770 In 1826 " " 180,086 Id 1846 " " 36:1,000 In 1866 " " ? The blank lor 186ft, we leave to others to fill tip. At a guess we should put down 600,000 or more, without reference to Brooklyn, or other adjacent places. To judge from the past?the extraordinary rate at which ftjew York has progressed since 1820, there is every reason to believe that it will be, in time, the largest city in the world. The Army Promotions and Appo intments.? The promotions and appointments in the Army ?l the United States since the publication ol the Army Regieter, In January, 1847, were published exclusively in the Utrald yesterday, and will occupy a place in the Weekly Herald of this week* We arc glad to see that our gallant officers,who behaved so nobly in the battles of Palo Alto and besaca de la Palma, and in the defence of Fort Down, have not been overlooked Our readers may have perceived, that, perhaps, every one of them who distinguished himself on those occasions has been promoted. Correspondence between General Taylor and i he War Department?In another part of this day's paper will be found the official correspon- I donee between the War Department and Geneial Taylor, so far as published. The correspondence is voluminous, and will occupy several days in its publication. Military.?The Hussars of the 1st Brigade, I srs succeeded in obtaining at Albany all the privi e ,es formerly enioyed by the 1st Division of Artillery. Mexican Cavaley.?Statement* the most contradictory have appeared in print, respecting the elliciency of the Mexican cavalry. According to some, the cavalry is the very best portion of the Mexican army ; according to others, it is the worst. An ollicer of our army in Mexico, who was present at the capture of Monterey, stated, V'n a letter wtucn was puupsneu in scvciai ho-* papers,) that he had seen "a regiment of lancers, composed of very fine looking men " In another paper we find the following paragraph, in a letter from iti Ne.w Orleans correspondent:? "All the officers from Mexico speak in high tsrms of the Mexican cavalry, and admit they are fully equal to our mounted volunteers, man for man, and greatly out* number our forces of that description." Now read what Mr. W. Thompson, in his "Recollections oi Mexico," (page 170,) says on the subject :? "I should regard it (the Mexican cavalry,) from the diminutive sixe of their horses, end the equally diminutive stature and feebleness of their ridera, as utterly inefficient against any common infantry." And again, at page 172, he says "An American corps, (of cavalry,) from the superior size of their horses, would.cover twice as much ground, anil the obstruction offered by tho Mexicans on their small and scranny poniea, would scarcely cause their horses to stumble in tiding over them: to say nothing of the greater inequality of the men thomaelvee, five to one at leaat in individual combat, and mora than twice that in a battle." Truly, Mr. Thompson, and "the officers of the army," have very opposite views in respect to the efficiency of tho Mexican cavalry. Yet neither party can be said to be in the wrong, in relerence to this matter. The fact is, there is no uniformity in the composition of the Mexican cavalry?one portion being very bad, another very good.? When Mr. Thompson was in the city of Mexico, he saw the bad portion?the olliccrs of General Taylor's army have seen the good Amongst the Indians, and the very dregs of the population of the large towns, the cavalry you see in the city of Mexico, and the country south thereof, is recruited. The men comprising it are puny, and ill made, and unskilled in the use of arms. Nine tenths of them never mounted a horse before the day of tneir enlistment. Their horses, too, are as puny as themselves; not be uiiunr mere lire no 11110 liorses in me repuouc 01 Mexico, but because, in the northern districts, horses are scarce and dear. These are the cavalry Mr. Thompson saw during his residence in Mexico. But when you travel northward of the city of Mexico?when you enter the departments of San Luis de Potosi, Morelia, Arc , you enter a fine grazing country, whero horses are dog cheap. As a matter of course, the cavalry raised in that part of Mexico, are well mounted; and it is composed of men who, from being engaged in tending the immense herds of cattle with which that portion of the republic is covered, have become bold in charaoter, and athletic in frame. They are dexterous swordsmen, and as horsemen un* surpassed. These are the men who constitute a large portion ef the cavalry now at San Luis de Potosi, under the orders of Santa Anna. These are not the men Mr. W. Thompson saw, when acting as U. S. Minister in Mexico. But supposing that the Mt-xican cavalry are not only equal, but even superior to our own, in strength and stature, what does that matter 1 It is mental, rather than physical force, which gains battles. The Romans, though much smaller men than the Gauls, almost always defeated them ? The diminutive infantry of France have olten put to the rout the gigantic grenadiers of Austria. The Mamelukes never could withstand the onsent of the French cavalry, though much superior to the latter in stature. And we may be sure that in this, ' as in former epochs?in Mexico, as in other countries?when two armies engage in battle, the one whioh belongs to the most civilized nation of the two, will, nine times out of ten, gain the day. The New Postage haw. New York, March 19, 1947. James Oohdon Bennett, Keq : ? Dear Sir : I wish to enquire whether vour offer te for- | ward the Herald to persons in the country, applies to the daily Herald, end whether those are at liberty to avail themselves of it, who, lihe myself, have taken the Herald : regularly for several years, but are not subscribers 7 I hsve taken,and paid for, your paper, from an individual >o whom the sale, Sic., of papers affords, apparently, a living. This is one reason why I have not enrolled myself as a subscriber. I have uniformly forwarded it to the country, when read, and now wish simply to know whether you will allow me the privilege of your "bag." Yours, WALL STREET. According to our view of the new postage law, or rather according to our view of the circular of the Postmaster General, for the law and the circular are very different affairs, persons can purchase papers and mail them at this office at the old postage rates, but il they purchase the Herald, the daily or weekly, out of the office, and is first read before mailed, it must be dropped into the post-office and the three cer.ts postage prepaid. Yucatan Nkoociations?The Yucatan Com- : missions have closed negociations with the De- J partment of State, and without success, Mr. Bu- I chanan requiring that the port ofLaguna should : be held in occupation by the United States, under ' blockade, pending the war, notwithstanding the ! recognized neutrality of Yucatan. The President has recognized Thomas Rogers, of Charleston, Consul of the Pontifical States for the State df South Carolina The Fine Arts. The twenty aeoond annual exhibition of the National Academy of Design, is in progress of formation?a large proportion of the pictures aro now at the rooms, and from what is current among the members of the academy, it would seem that the coming aeaaon is to be in no respect inferior, and may surpass that of the last?which was oue of ths finest exhibitions ever offered by this association to the public, whether considered in regard to variety of school*, styles and manner, or, in respect to the execution and finish of those pictures, more particu lerly recognized as coming from the masters of thesrt The chief diflculty in an exhibition of this kind is, that the vast difference between portrait and hiatorical painting is too little recognized, even among artista themselves ; and when a good portrait is spoken of as constituting a high claim to the name of artist, we bow in deference?but privately, conclude that one doe* not wiah to swallow a toad to become the posaessor of a jewel. Musical. Italian Or era?PalmCs was crowded last night?a perfect jam, and the "Baibar of Seville" was performed to the satisfaction of the immense concource. Pico played and sang Roiina. 01 ihe doei every thiajc she undertakes, to admiration. We shall refer to the performance again. There is to be an extra performance this evening, when the "Barber" will be related. CMaisTv's MiasreLf.?This is their last night, and those who have not yet seen them, should repair to the Society Library this evening. Their choruses are excellent, and their wit rich and humorous. They have done a great business. Thk Allsohshishi, comprising three male and two female singers, give their last concert at the Tabernacle on Tuesday evening next. If we judge by their former entertainment, the Tabernacle being crowded, they cer tainly will have a bumper. They are good musloians, and their voices in concert are perfect harmony. Miss Caroline and her little sister greatly enhance the attractivenes oi this sweet band of vocalists. Oo early and secure seats. Person el and Political.

Theatrical. fai Thi?tk-Bw?ht or the Vik.nhouk ChiiDam?This is the le?t night, and it will be a distant period, if ever, when this splendid entertainment can be enjoyed again. Apart from their attraction, kindly feel, ing towards these little strangers in a foreign land should ! draw a crowded house to greet them on a night like this. Their tender age, their state of orphanage among ua, their ambition to please, their untiring effort* to excel in a profession so arduous and so rare on our boards?all i these should appeal to our sympathies and ealiat our sup| port They lock for this patronage?they need this stimulant It will kindle a Just pride and a glow of de light in their bosoms Night alter night they are called i on to toil for our amusement; and, tanked to their utmoat ; trength. in a state of temporary exhaustion, link on | their pillow to repose, in a career so trying, your pre| sonce, your welcome nnd applause still cheer them onward. Let them not he dinappolnted. Four dances are i I to be produced?the " Pas de Flours," the most graceful ! | and beautiful perhaps of all; the " Polka Paysanne," ever j 1 popular and pleasing ; the " Pas Rococo," piquant and ! | humorous, with the style and costume of a brilliant and memorable era, that of Louis XV , combining, with the ! ! minuet of that court, a great many impoaing and graceI fu] attitudes and forms ; and the " Pot Pourri." 80 rich I I a variety of flgurea and movements, and so characteristic ! i in national manners and dress, closes the night'* display, j Lat all go to-night. Bowery Theatre.?"The Mysteries of Paris, or the ' Prince and the Stabber," was performed here laet evening before a full and crowded bouse. Neafio, as the Chouri neur, or Stabber ; Clarke, as Prince Rodolph ; Vache, as Murphy, and Hadaway as Tortillard, were excellent. Mri. Sergeant aa Fleur de. Marie, pet formed with in- 1 ! finite cleverness, and tne wholo piece was presented with a very powerful and talented cast ? The other attractions of the evening were reoeived with 1 ' applause. This evening will be presented four very at- 1 tractive pieces, vis:?"Beauty and the Beast," "Jack | Shappard." "Robert Macaire," and "Married Yesterday," 1 which will bring out the entire company?Neofie, Vache, Clarke, Hedaway, Mr*. Sergeant, and Mra. Booth, together with ali the performer*. "Robert Macaire," by ! Stevens, and the talented cast in this popular piece, will j be received with enthusiasm. The entire bill far this 1 evening will be found exoelient, and will draw a full and crowded house. 1 < Gbbenwich Theatbi.?The " Actress of All Work" 1 was produced bore last evening, and Miss Carolina 1 Chapman as Maria, in which she represented six differ- , ent characters, performed with extreme cleverness, and ] was received with [much applause. La Signora Man tin j danced a grand " ras nerreux," in wnicn una was roujiy ] applauded. The " Rebel Chief" was next produced, and John Dunn as Marc Antony Tape kept the house < convulsed with laughter by his rich performance. 1 Handel Squall by Chapman, Corporal Diskey by t Fredericks, and Edward O'Brien by Urattan, were admirably performed. To night is fixed for the farewell ( benefit of Chapman. The claims of Mr. H Chapman J upon bis numerous friends here are manifold, and few c deserve a more cordial greeting from a bumper house i than this popular comedian and general actor. We trust his numerous friends will flock forward to the Oreen- \ wich this evening and give him a full " bumper at part- c ing." Signora Mantin, Mile. Ocoana, and Monsieur Bennie, will dance on this occasion. The bill will be found t highly attractive. o Bowkbv Circus.?The Ethiopian Seronaders, or Dul* a cimer Band, continuo to draw, in connection with the jj other attractions, the most crowded houses. There will t! be an af ernoon performance here every Saturday at 3 (o'clock. Monsieur Casimer, the celebrated French [j drummer, continues te elicit the most enthusiastic op- ai plause from the vast crowds of spectators who nightly e flock here. The feats of the oompany fully sustain t< the high reputation of this popular place of n evening amusement. Horsemanship by Master Nixon, o Messrs Sergeant, Madigan and Bacon; also, vault- n ing, tumbling, rope performances, posturing, jug- n gling, 8tc , tic., are also presented nightly. The grand n attractions here are highly creditable to the enterprising n proprietor. b Mr. C. R. Thorne, late manager of the American Theatre, New Orleans, arrived at Boston on Thursday last. City Intelligence. Thx Weather ?Yesterday was a mild and beautiful day, and the streets were thronged with foot passengers, mary of them apparently strangers. The river is opening rapidly, and we may soon look forward to the opening of the spring trade with ah unusual degree of activity. We hud a very light frost visible yesterday morning. The evening was remarkably fine. The String Business.?The wholesale stores in Broad street, and in the principal parts of our city, presented an appearance of active business preparations yesterday, and large piles of goods were strewn about opposite the ' doors in all quarters. It is anticipated that a considerable ) amount of spring business will be transacted during the | ensuing month. The stores are well supplied with all ; kinds of merchandise. > Increase or the City?There were 1910 buildings j erected in this city in 1840. This number is less thpn that of 1845 by seventy. In 1844 was the great fire, aud ! , that many new buildings were erected in consequence, I ( but probably quite as large a proportion ot tnose were subsequent to December 31, 184.5, as prior to it, , The Long Island Railroad.?It will be recollected that about three weeks since some persons were arrest- ; ed for tearing up the rails on the Long Island Railroad, and brought belore Judge Edmonds to be doalt with according to law. The Judge then entered upon an exa- ] initiation oi the case, and adjourned it over to yesterday, j when Ike examination was resumed, which resulted In the disehorge of the parties implicated. Boston Papers, of yesterday morning, were received at this othce early last evening, through the kindness of Mr. Cloyes, and Messrs. Phillips & Co.'s Express, via. New Haven. Fires.?The fires still continue on the increase. A 1 fire occurred yesterday morning in the basement of No. 37 Mulberry street. It .was discovered by policeman Owens, who found on the premises an unfortunate woman in a state of intoxication and in a deep sleep. The fire was soon extinguished, end owing to the active exertions of the policeman, both the life ot the wretched woman and the premises were saved. A fire alio occurred in a crockery store, No. 367 Bowery, yesterday morning. The fire did much damage to both the property and premises. Another occurred yeiterday afternoon, about 4Jtf o'clock, originating in the rear of No 86 Fuiton s'.rret. I occupied by Mr. 8.Pay son. The front store, occupied ! t | as an exchange office, and the rear, where the Are Irat I 1 I made ita appearance, a* a carpenter'! ahop The fire itn- ! f mediately communicated with No. 68, and the upper part I 1 and roof were .considerably damaged ; No 84 was also lightly damaged. The Are was put out after much exertion by the Aremen, who promptly Aocked forward, ' and the premises were soon completely Aooded through the efficient uid of the Are companies. The store of 88 was occupied by Messrs Kiddell k Gosselin, watchma- ' kers, who received much damage by the water. The lower part of all tho premises escaped. In the excitement and alarm a large quantity of household furniture was thrown out of tire windows, and was carried to some of the adjoining houses. One ot the Aremen, who worked like a genuiue hero, had to make his escape through the front window into the atreet, being slightly scorched. The promise a were partly, we understand, insured. Funeral Honors.?The sum oi $600, we understand, was expended on the occasion of tfce late funeral obsequies, to pay a just tribute to the remains of Captains Morris, Field and Williams, in this city. Shad ?The Arst shad this season was caught yes'arday at Staten Island. It weighed Ave pounds nine ounces, and waa sold in Fulton market for $5. We may soon lock for large quantities of this Ane Ash in our markets, and at reduced prices. Swindling Operations.?A systematized plan of swindling, we understand, is in full operation just now, by some half dozen persons, who have opened stores in this city. The operations are very ingenious ? Should one of the party want to purchase goods from any of our wholesale merchants, he will make up 1 a very plausible story, aud'then refer to his friend Mr. So and-so, who ke?pa a store in such a street. Mr. Soand-so hereupon dilates upon the high character and standing of his friend, and will refer to another of the "Arm," located in some other quartor of the city, to support him. Thus the wholesale merchant will be deaoyed, and the amount of the swindle is divided between tho I parties. We understand that this plan is now in operation, and the wholesale merchants should bo on the qui vive to guard against it, now that the spring business Is about to commence actively. Professor Mitchell's last Lecture on Astroho1 mv.?There was a very largo audience at the Broadway i Tabernacle last evening, called together to listen to I Professor Mitchell's lecture on the sunject of the "Ccn. tral Sun," around which, it has been contended, that our un, snd the planets of cur system, and the Axed stars, | revolve in common with other innumerable suns and I systems of planets The lecturer remarked upon the various propositions which have Irum time tc time been advanced, and the arguments adduced to prove that such a , I central body did exist. And then, by a course of reuson: ing, bared upon determined data, proceeded to demon I strata the non-existence of such a great central rb. ^Nosuch body," be argued, "does exist " This might [ startle some, but such must bo the conclusion resulting i ; from the observations already made by the astronomers, wkn hflva nuti?ii(lv nkinturul arwl /vnlrtilafa/1 tha ntr. !

In : connexion with the aubject, the lecturer indulged in i aome felicitous apeculationa, drawn in the glowing language peculiarly bia own. After he had completed hi* lecture he claimed the indulgence of the audience lor a ; ahort time, while he related the biatory of hi* efloit* and j their aucceaa in procuring the erection of the oh- I aervatory at Cincinnati. vv'hen he first propoaed to commence the enterpiiae, he waa diacouragedj | he waa told; ha could raiae no money for auch nn j object i but he weut to work end immediately . $10,0011 were contributed and laid out in iiiatrumenta | * which are now in poaaeaaion ol' the aociety; he waa told that he could not gat a place to build upw, but a liberal ' contributor came forward and gave lite ground which j ! forma the aite ol the obaervetorv. He hml m.lv to make i j known his wants and mechanics and artificers came for! ward and took shares, pay ing Tor them in labor in their various departments, whilo others furnished material.? One gave planks tor the floors, while another laid thorn i down, and another contributed the nails to fasten thorn I in their places. One gave the sash lor the windows, I | another contributed tho glass, and another the iron work, < and yet another the cordage with which to hang them ? 80 that when the roof was on tho building not a cent of ( dobt had bean incurred. Here, however, it became ne! ceseary to maka an outlay, end Mr. Mitchell was finally 1 induced to throw his own all into the scale, betides inI curring a debt of some $4,000, and thus the observatory | was completed Pol lea Intelligence. ji Daring Trick?A Frenchman by the name of Gaeton Mathicn, keeping a watch and jewelry store at No. 306 a Canal street, was visited yesterday morning, (Friday) s about 11 o'clock, by rather a genteel looking man, who appeared to l>a in great haste, requesting Mr. Mathian to L go immediately to No. MA Greenwich street, for the pur- \ i>ose of repairing a clock. Mr. Mathien supposing ail to It be correct, immediately put on his hat, and as ha was \ alone in the store at the time, locked up the j F J J uMeen<ln4 'as mlifk IV 11 nOflllhll tO ill?

'V Charge of Grand larceny ? Offlcer Floyd. of the 2nd B ward, arretted last uight a Dutchman called Antone tc Geis, on a warrant issued by Justice Drinker, wherein he stands charged on en old complaint, of stealing a let I of clothing and otheif articles, valued at nearly $>00, the it propci ty of Phillip Bruniier, residing in Forsyth street. < Committed for examination.

These two roads ' depend almost entirely upon the through travel between this oity and Boston, and they musfcontinue to?as they have heretofore?find it rather unprofitable business. The Norwioh andfWorcester Company will labor under disadvantages during the approaching travelling seasorv, which will compel it to confine its business almost , entirely to the local travel. It has not proper fscilii lies to enable it to compete successfully with the other lines for the 8ound travel. There are in operation : at this time, four routes to Boston, two day and two nijht lines. Of all these lines, the shortest Is by the way of Oreenport and Stonington, and we learn that arrangements are about being made to run through by this route in eight hours. 8houtd these arrangements be perfected, the* Norwich and Worcester oomptny will lose this portion of the through travel. This, however, is not of muoh consequence, as it is estimated that only about one-fifth of the travel between this rity and Boston, has been, in'each of the past two years, transported by the two day lines. That company must leok out tor its night line of through travel, as four-fifths of the whole is via Long Island Sound In the night boats. This portion of the through travel is In a fair way of being drawn to the Stonington route, as the railroad and 1 steamboat companies of that line have provided faoili. 1 ties superior to those of any other route, and such 1 as must command the bulk of the through business. It is estimated that the time between the two cities by that line, will not vary much from nine hours Tho Oregon goes on early in a pril, and the Vanderbilt early in June. It is the most direct, the shortest, and with the advantages such magnificent boats as thosa named above furnish, it must be the cheapest and quickast route between New York and Boston. The locsl travel of the Norwich and Worcester Rail, road has been, in each of the past two years, about fiveeighths of the aggregate business of the company. Tha sources of this business are so limited, and the construe i lion 01 omer ronu? ciucuiaica to aruw away pan 01 that whioh it ha* hitheito monopolised, aie progressing as rapidly, that the maximum oi that traffic, has without doubt, been reached It will therefore be aeon that with so increaae in ita local travel, and with a falling of* of c largo per cent in ita through buaineaa, that the greea income oi the company thia year, ia not likely to exceed that of laet. It ia our opinion that it will not equal that of 1848, while the expen. diturea will be ftilly n? large. In thia view , a ' the affaire of the Norwich and Woroeater Railroad o mpany, it ia impoaaibfb to keep ita atock at the preaent 1 market value. Ithaanot in fact any real value, aa the payment of even the emalleat dividond ia utterly eut of the queation.
