NEW YORK HERALD. New York, Tum1*y, September I, IMT. Hireling of the LeglilUur* The Le^isU'ure of this State will convene at the cspitsl to-morrow, and continue in session until the business left unfinished at the last session shall have been completed. We have made arrangements with the telegraph company that will enable us to present our readers with a synopsis of each day's proceedings in the next diy's Herald. None of the members had reached Albany on Sunday last. The Latest from the Heat of 'War?The Crisis In Our Relations with Mexico. /*... ?,.:II s.j . ,?u ,i.;. ,iav>a paper, which we rec-ived yesterday by tel'-graph, and which informs them thit General Twiirgs' division of the American army, reached Ayotla on the thirteenth of August last, whifih place is within twentv-one miles of th? capital. Unless peace commissioners have tie?'n appointed to confer with Mr Tn.if, or some other contingency haa occurred, it is reasonible to suppose that our armv entered the cipitil on the twentieth, twenty-first, or twenty-seoond of the same month, and ihit the troops are now being drilled daily in the muin plaza of the city of M-sico. If the former, peace is near at hand or has been concluded; if the latter, we are as far off, or perhaps farther, than we ever thought we were. A week will probably decid*. We cannot think, however, that the capital has been reduced without a severe and bloody b lttle having occurred at some point near the city, perhaps Penon, which is the strongest point between it and Ayotla. If the enemy has been defeated there, and we cannot suppose for a moment that the issue of the struggle could be otherwise than disastrous to him, he has undoubtedly fled, not probably into the capital, but to eome point adjacent, and that the city authorities surrendered the city on the promise that life and property should be respected. Our troops then marched in and took possession, but we question whether such capitulation without a suspension ot hostilities solicited by the Mexicans, would 1 be of any signal advantage to us; and we hope that Gen. Scott has not stipulated to protect the property of the city, unless the Mexican army is surrendered, or peace proposed Our troops, otherwise, would be liab e to be hemmed in by the Mexican forces, and perhaps cut off by 1 a preconcerted movement between them and the ' citizens. This is a result not at all unlikely to be attempted, when we reflect upon the small j number of troops under Gen. Scott's command, and the notorious bad faith of the Mexicans. At any rate, the line of communication between i the capital and Vera Cruz would be cut off, and a considerable time elapse before it could be reopened. We do not know what the instructions are which govern General Scott's movements? wh^thT he is directed by the administration to continue the plan at first adopted, and so long? too long?continued, of piying for every thing | necessary for the subsistence of his forces ; in ] other words, of fighting the enemy with half- 1 eagles and doubloons; or whether the people and the property-holders are to be made to feel the burden and the distress of the war, by levying on them for all that he might need, and burning and destroying as he went along. The latter is a fearful and dreadful alternative, and should never be resorted to except in cases where the enemy is dogged and evinces a determination not to innke peace. Such an emergency has occurred in this war. We have h?*ld forth the olive branch before and after every engagement that has taken place since the commencement of the war, and in each case "war to th^ knife" has been the reply. Self-preservation, the first law ot nature, and regard to th cl lima of humanity and civilization, imperiously demand at our hands u change of policy. We have already thrown too many paper pellets with our leaden balls. mus t now try the virtue of something worse. We have said that we do not know whether the latter named policy is to be resorted to after the capture of the capital; but if it be not, we aee no wav in which this war can be brought to a close. If the war hud been conducted since its commencement as all wars are conducted, by the victorious party laying waste every part of the enemy's country that was conquered, it would have ended long since. If it has been recently adopted, and General Scott directed, after defeating the Mexicans at any point near the capital, where they should make a stand, to demand instant peace, and in case of its being denied, to batter down and destroy it, the Mexicans would then suffer the horrors of warfare, and be clamorous for peace. To this point they must be brought. The destruction of the cities of Mexico, Puebla, Monterey, Saltillo, &c., Sic., would save ' thousands of valuable lives, and lead to a peace. | "What else will 1 Another v^ttw or the Mattkr?The Mails a\d Cave Johnson.?We mentioned the other day that the Hartiord and New Haven Railroad Company had ceased to perform the mail service, and we have seen their reasons for doing so in a long article from the pen of the President of the Company. We regret that the article is so long as to make it impossible for us to insert it entire, beeause we consider ourselves bound in justice to do it, having published Cave Johnson's and Mr. Vanderbih's sides of the same story; but we shall extract from it the points bearing on the dispnte. The article is addressed to Cave Johnson, and ays:? It Is well known that they, the Hartford tad N?? Haven Railroad, are Interested u proprietor* In a line of steamboat* running In connection with their road between New Haven and New York You have lean fit to refuse the price whloh this line of boats required for the mail service, and have chartered another boat to per form that service an arrangement ot which this company hare no right to complain. At the same time It Is obvious that thin boat i* calculated to daetroy thrlr husines* impair their revsnuea, and In every point of view to constitute an interest wholly hostile and detrimental to their own. They cannot, la Justice to their stockholders. consent to the suicidal policy of aiding to sustain a concern whloh from the very nature of tha case ean only nucoaad at their expense They are ready to perforin tha steamboat mail service, as they ever hare been, betweea New York and New H iTen. for $8,000 a year, tha allowed by your pre. deceeeors The article then goes on to prove that the mm demanded by them for the service was not un; reasonable, and insists that the Eastern route cannot be termed any but a first class one " In addition to tha fket* and reason* given by Mr Vanderbilt. to whaaa communication they refer, there are further considerations going to show that the rate of compensation required by them for that service is not nnreasonable la your explanation published In the Courier and EnqHirer on the Jflth ult, yon allude to eer'aio laws of Congress and oertain classifications wblco appear to hamper aad restrict your action with respxet t? the Post Offlce service Whatever may be said or the pasaait* of these laws, the classification has been wholly discretionary with you There is no law of Coogrvs* which c impel* you to rank the most Important mall route of New Kngianl in an inferior class, or to limit Ita pay to one-third the amount which Congress aaslgued to a first class service (n your letter to the Courier you s? ? as the steamboat service nas always b*en regarded aa inferior to railroad service, the ssttled in the Department at 11% per cant less than that of railroads Now Instead of being I inferior, n mi Happen* mat thl? uteamboat aerrioa hu lyen auperlor to the a** ** of railroad ?erTice, both in regularity and ap-ed and oon.eqa.ntly m It I. your duty to dlMTn uU>. th.rul. of U* percent daduc Horn ttonnt with Juitice be applied to it It ha* lx*n performed with greater ip?*d and puna. tualiy than any other .tearaboai .errine in the whole oouoiry It bu b??n the only rout* on which r?p?tl?ii failure* ba?a not oo?urr?d Supplying aa it haa the dana* population of the Connecticut River Valley, it* Da>l Barrio* baa baen entitled to rank with any other In Importrno* and valu* It haa oarrtad two daily maili, repairing the .errie* of two boat*. one by day and the other by ntght, tharaby graatly adding to the acr.nmmo datlon of the publlo It ha* performed the duty laat va.r dlachargeu by the Long inland Railroad, and for which yo* pay that oompanj tha of f.V73fl per an ^ atom to ttiTTf ba> offered to iatiwU, lor t I th?

Nevertheless this comnynv have not demanded the msxtmnm rate of p?y. $3(Vn per mile, but hare required one half of It.and have nev?r s?en anv reason to atter their lew* wleth espeot to t.he reasonabl*ne?s and moderation of that, demand You have not seen fit to allow It. and even the materially diminished rate of compensation, which has been conceded has upon various nretenoee been repeatedly and vexatiously withheld. This company have pa'd th? government mora than two thousand dollars per mile, for the dut.ie* on their Iron rail*, the 1nerest of ?blob payment l? more than #110 per mile, per tannnm for each mile of their road, while other companies to which the maximum rate of compensation la allowed have paid nothing We are therefore furnishing to the government a nearly gratuitous mail service. As to the allegation that this company is a monopoly, the article proves decisively the reverse to be the case. Any man or set of m?n aw at liberty to mUblUb a Steamboat line between New Haven and New York, and between Hartford and N-w York, bv Connecticut river. I If this company have no exclusive privilege on the water, still l<*ss have they been endowed with one upon the land. It l? a little more than a year slnee the Legislature of this State chartered aline of railroad from New Haven to the north line of the State, running parallel with their road n arly its whole length, at an average dls'anoe of six or seven miles from It. and a portion of this road Is already In the course of construction If another appll cation were to be mad* the next year for the charter of another rosd In still rioter proximity to tbnlr road, there la not the slightest reason to doubt that suoh application would he granted. ? ? Having faithfully accomplished the mala purpose for which railway companies are constituted, they claim the right accorded to them oq all question! connected with their business to judge of the reasonableness of any compensation which may be tendered to them by the Post Office Deportment. f?r the performance of the mail service. and thev beliey- that they have in this letter assigned sufficient reason to show that under all the circumstances of the case, the remuneration required for this service has not been unreasonable or exorbitant. Now Mr. Johnson can reflect on this. While he is doi >g so we would ask him, what becomes of all his allegations, about the classifications, the law, the routes, the monopolies, and every thing else that he has resorted to for the purpose of concealing his own inefficiency for the office of PostinaBter General! Another word, Mr. Johnson. You have made terrible outcries against the Camden and Amboy Railroad Company, and against the New Haven boats and railroad Sound, and the New England routes, and you have mad* tremendous exertion through the newspapers and otherwise, to prove if you could, but which you could not, that you ! were not to blame for the failures on these lines. Now we would ask you how will you get over the failures that are daily occurring on almost every other route in the country? Is every steamboat, railroad company, and stage coach in this vast Union a monopoly, or are you the twelfth man whose misfortune it was always to be on a jury with eleven obstinate jurymen, with whom he never could agree? Or again, do you w^sh to concentrate the attention of the public on these two routes alone, and divert it from all others! Mr. J?hnson, it will not do. You are a clever enough kind of a man, individually, but as Postmaster General, you are not the man;? and be ashured that in telling you so, nei'her the Herald nor any of its numerous correspondents has any private spleen to gratify. Give ua better mail accommodations than we have ever had, and we shall say that you are the best Postmaster we ever had, but give us the worst as you do, and we shall call you the worst, as we do. As evidence that you are not the thing, we refer you to the " Mail Failures" we are publishing in this paper from d*y to day. We have now done with the Eastern Mail.

View op the Battle ovBi tKjVim?A magnificently colored lithograph of the battle of Buena Vista has bean published, and if now for sale in this eitj The picture Itself is some 36 bj 18 Inches in length and width, and is accompanied by a key which fully explains the pnaltions of regiments, oompanles, &o. There Is an *Tid?nt truthfulness. an appearance of life about the picture,which is seldom found to accompany the sketches of Mexican battles This lithograph is from a drawing made by Major Joseph H Eaton, aid de camp to Gen Taylor, who took his sketch on the spot. The picture is well worth having. Deiiox rea the VV*?hi*otoi Moiumeht.?We yesterday saw a dealgn for the Washington Monument, made by Mr YVm Ballard, of this city.

There waa a simplicity and truth in his personation, that entirely identified him with the character. It was, aa if the actor to whom was given the genius to conceive the mighty oreation of Shaleapear e, had by some cunning necromancy conjured up before our eyea the Otht-llo himselt, with ell his fond unutterable love, his racking doubts, his utter loathlrgs, hi. ?. l..kr imIuAi V... _||,| ?,,,i (?..lkU tumiuMl .if Bin uvM??*un K* ion " ?? ..? ?v*..w.? ? | painlona; sweeping th?-m all away, hit flxfd autl neMle<! ; purposes, and I nut of all the bitter remorse and grief which hurried him to his fate There ?u an intensity lo Mr Forrest's noting of the Moor, from first to lajt, which Kept every thought and word up to its uttermost stretch Mr Forrest was molt ably supported, and the tragedy was put upon the stage lu a most praiseworthy manner.

Chatham Thkathk?We have seen the bill of performance* that will be presented to the patrons of the Chatham theatre this evvuing, and wo can confidently say that it promises some rare amusement. The comedy ! of 'London Assurance," with Miss Clarke and Mr Waloot in the principal character*, forms the first part of it. an t the laughable force of " Bamboozling" the conclusion Between these pieces, Miss Du Loraine will per form a prarid fancy danne. VVe need not repeat that a pleasant hour can lie spent at the Chatham this evening. Castle Qakden.?The performance of the ''Two Foscari" took place last evening, aud went off in a very perfect style. Hignora Rainier!, whose vulce Is so rich and whose tones are so harmonious, performed the part of Lueresia Contarlnl, and rendered perfect the despair of that unfortunate woman, who, in the midst of her love, was so outrageously separated from her husband. Perelll, (Fo?oari,j the sweet tenor, and Luigi Vita (the Doge.) acted and sang with a precision which Is munh admired. The One music of Verdi we admire greatly The subject, though very sad, 1s quite effective for soenlo aotlon, and well appropriated Verdi understands admirably the poem, and his muslo corresponds to the grandiose of the soenarlo. The audienoe was good enough at the Castle Harden, and. among the principal persons present we remarked the officers of the Frenoh steamer New York, who had been visited by Signor VilUrlno, the manager, whose politeness is now proverbial in our city. This evening we shall bear, for the first time in America, the oelebrated Bellini's opera,'' Ilomeo and Juliet," generally known in Europe under the title of "Capulettl e Montechl " We should have presented our resders with the synopsis of the play, if we had believed that any among them had not read or seen the famed tragedy of bhakspeare upon which it is founded. The only thing we have to make known, is, that the charmante Signorina Tedesoo takes in It the part of Homeo. No one of ber admirers, (and they are as numerous as the sand of the sea.) will full to go sml see her In male attire. We understand that this is one of the greatest triumphs of the cantatrice, who has in it a maguitioent part, superb costumes, and displays all her histrionlo and musical talent. The other characters are taken by Signora Carantl di Vita, (Juliet.) and L. I'errozzi, (Tybalt.) New scenery, new costumes, a fine breeze, and excellent musio for fifty cents. Palmo's Theatre.?THIS place 01 amusemeut, so long aa it ia occupied by the Ravels, cannot fail to be crowded by fashionable audlenoea. They were, indeed, capital last evening, and all went off very well. Tonight, these acrobats will again give another good performance, which will.oonsiat of the one act piece,*' The Sketches of India." the pantomime of the " Wood Cutters," the elegant and daring aohlevements on " la corde raidt" by Leon Javelli and Gabriel Ravel; then after will come a grand put dr. deux from " La Favorite," by Madame L. Javelli and H Wells. The entertainment will conclude with the celebrated performances of the " Bedouin Arabs," by the whole Ravel Family,-'who will in this spectaole. not only appear correctly attired, and offer a personation of the real Bedouin, but will pledge themselves to exhibit all that these Indian performers have attempted, with many darlngand almost incredible feats which no performers of any nation In the world have ever conceived possible to be achieved. Misebva Rooms ?The Virginia Serenadera have entered upon their last week at the Minerva Rooks, and there is every prospect of its being very successful. The programme advertised for this evening is unusually rich, and promises some rare sport. Pkedee Opera Troupe.?We are glad to see this company receiving success, for they promise to be as perfect in their line as any that have solicited public patronage. Tbey will perform again this evening at the Apollo Rooms. Brottdwuy. M. Bartholomews New Ballet Company.?These talente J dancers, who are engaged, as announced, to appear at the opening of the new theatre In Broadway, are already preparing themselves to make a grand impression on that occasion. The prettiest costumes, the most exquisite scenery, the loveliest ladies for the corp? de ballet -suoh are the novelties which will be displayed by that company We witnessed the other day a part of these preparations, and we think they will be a great help to the real talent which Is possessed by M. and Madame Monplaisle and M. Bartholomiu, whose reputation as maitre dr ba let is known tbtough France, Germany, Italy, Russia, and England. We shall keep our readers au courant. The Rosika Meadows Compact.?This popular vaudeville company, under the management of Mr William B. F.nglish, are performing to crowded housea In the principal towns on the Hudson river, en route to Saratoga. Their entertainments are well spoken of, being, for the moat part, dramas written by Mr. Knglish, which have won "golden opinions" in the theatres in the Union. This company is quite respectable and talented; among the names we notice Mr Salisbury, who is doing up the funny bualnesa In great style. Among the ladies, Mrs Western, In the manoloque and vaudevilles, appears to be the ''bright particular star." Thi Union Pantomimuti -This company,consisting of W. A. Barnes, S'gnor Pheli rarlo, nil J the Holland finally,perform at Newark on Wednesday and Thureday evenings Tbey are exceedingly clever, and no doubt will b? well patronised by the citizens of Newark.

A morn lovely d?y than yesterday could hardly have been desired ? the roads to the cnurae wore in tolerable order* thanks to the g?>uial rain of the morning, and the port, as we have intimated, was superb. Indeed, we doubt whether a mora exciting, stoutly contested race than one described in the annexed report, baa been witnessed since the famouscontest- between Dutchman and Rattler on thu Deacon Course, Oct. 6, 1838 ; and although the time made on that occasion was better, yet the match could not have aUord^J more Interest to the spectators than the ono whioL tor>fc plaoe on Outreville yesterday. The na^H were finely matched, and managed with that consummate skill which is fust bedoming a puint of houor in the sporting circles. The first performance announced in the bills, of the dtty, was a purse of (60. two mile heats, under th? saddle, the entrances for wbioh were 0. 8 Dertine's ch. m. Liatuna, and I. Woodruff's b m Lady Taylor. Tho latter was the fivorlte, at two to one, notwithstanding she had cast a shoe on her way to the track, and therr b< ing no blacksmith in the neighborhood to replace it, she was

compelled to go with her off hind foot bare. Firtt Htat.?Lady Taylor drew the track, giving the utside position to Llatuna, as a matter of course At the start, Llatuna took the leud by a length, the rider of Lady Taylor expressing his willingness to go, by a nod to the judges. Llatuna increased this distance around the turn, and passed the iiuarter pile full two lengths In front of her oompetitor in 47 seconds Down thu back stretch there was no deviation in the distance between tbem, and Liatuna patsed the half mile pole In 1:30. From thence round the lower turn, Lady Taylor gradually shortened the distanoe between her and her adversary; but when oloae up with her, broke and Ml off again a length Her rider then rallied her; and up the stretch, caught, passed her, and led by the stand two lengths in front. In 3:J; shortly after which. Liatuna broke badly, ana fell off four or five lengths before she reached the quarter pole. Down the back stretch. Lady Taylor held all that she he d gained by the acoident oi her opponent, and even lengthened the gap. At about the half mile pole, Liatuna seemed to almost oome to a stand still, and it appeared evident that all her ohances for the heat were lost, seeing which. Woodruff, the rider i\t I .ml v Tavlor mil/I# i?n uff.jrt. m diafanitA h?r fwlr.nh he undoubtedly might have done, had he tried sooner,) but foiled in his endeavor by a few yards. Time?0:9. Second Heat?Thin heat was a counterpart of the first, exoept that Liatuna did not even reach the drawgate when Lady Taylor passed the score, proviug hurmlf a counterfeit o! the Louisiana inula mare, whose name she ignobly bears. Lady Taylor passed the staud easily, in 2:o9. 'i'Hor No.Two.. This was for a purse of $25, mile he its, best three in flve.under the saddle, and it was unquestionably the best contested trot that has been witne?sed for a long t.lme. There were four heats. Jim Boll, Young American, and Liatuna, (the defeated in the previous engagement.) were the candidates for the pruce , the last mentioned, however, being of less accouut In this race than she was in the former, we leave her at the three quarter pole at the close of the first heat, and take note ol the two others as they passed the stand, Jim Bell having the lead by a length over Yong Americus. Time 2:64 X. S-cond, Third and Fourth Heat??These hfats were so closely contested, that they elicited the admiration of all present. The secoud heat was won by Young Americus. Jim Bell breaking at the start, and losing a couple of lengths, which advantage Young Americus maintained throughout the heat Time, 2:49 The third heat was still more exulting thau the previous one, bot h starting well together, and although Jim Bell gained a trifle on the turn, be was unable throughout the hoat to draw out clt-ar from Young Americus The excitement manifested by the spectators was intense, a* the uags came from the tbree-quarter pole to the stand. Young Americus had his bead on the quarters of Jim Bell thus far in the heat, and he seemed determined not to be shak- n off; and up the home stretch he struggled with hia adversary so closely, that he was defeated only by a neck. Time, 2:49)?. 1 be fourth heat was as olosely contested throughout as the previous one, and was wou only by a length, by Jim Bell, In 2:50; and we doubt whether the oldest turfite in the land, as we have previously asserted, has ever witnessed a more interesting aud nearly in tohed engagement. It would be advisable for the owners of each te give them another trial. Trot No. Thrf.k.-This was also for a purse of $25, mile heats, best three in five, in haruess, for which was entered Isaac Newton, Jim Bell, Young Americus. and Tobey. Of these Young Am- ricus and Isaac Newtoa were the only nags that came to the scratch when called for Jim Bell, having been successful in the previous raee, judiciously backed out, being chary ot the laurels he bad won Tobey was not lo-br lound when called for. The good reputation that Young Americus had established for himself in the former race, proved a terror to the Newtonians, and they very prudently advised the owner of Isaac to take him home to bis hay.

At the first board Treasury Notes fell off X per oent ; Farmers' Loan % ; Norwich k Worcester 1 ; Canton \ ; Heading 1; Long Inland % ; Ohio 6's closed at prices ourrent on Saturday, and Harl?m advanced IX per oent. At the second board Long Island declined 1 per cent.; Harlem 3 ; Farmers' Loan \; Norwich k. Worcester X. It will be perceived that all the fanoies are en the baok traok. This is what we have been looking for for some time, and although there may be from time to time Blight reaotions, it is our impression that prioes will steadily settle down to about the old points. Tbo?? who have taken advantage of the inflation and realised, will soon have an opportunity, if they wish to avail themselves of it, of getting all they want at very reduced prices. There Is a movement going on amoDg a Urge utid Influential class of agriculturalists, calculated to advance the value of Long Uland railroad stock, by giving it a much larger local business than it has at present. We allude to the efforts making to redeem and put under cultivation that immense traot of land lying between Karmingdale and Hiver Head, containing from ISO 000 to 180,000 acres. This laud is as capable of being made productive as any other part of Long Island, aud the railroad running through the centre of its eutlre length, affords superior facilities for getting to any part of it. M Ith a moderate outlay and a little judicious management, this traot of land might be made to produce as much as an equal quantity of land in any part of the State. Previous to the opening of the Erie Canal. Long I-land was the most prolific part of the oouatry, and had t>iat work not been oompleted so Boon, within ten or fifteen years, we Uare no doubt the whole of Long Island would have been thoroughly cultivated, and to this day highly productive.
