Vat week from the s. O. Picky no in gov 2d. Later from Alexica. The mails of the steamship Texas capt. Forbes from Vera Cruz the 21st inat., reached us last evening by the Tow boat Anglo american. By ibis arrival we have papers from Vera Crug to the 21at, from the City of Mexico to the 17th inat., fourteen Days later. The election for president of the be Publio under the new Constitution took place on monday the 18tb inst. So far As the returns were in they Are entirely favourable to com ont Ort of whose election none of the papers at the capital seem to entertain a doubt. In the District of Mexico the electoral College stood 281 for Comonfort 12 for Der do de Tejada and 17 scattering. Some Days would elapse before All the states would be Beard from but the vote in the District in believed to be about a fair example of what might be expected from the rest of the country. The election for president of the supreme court who in Case of the death absence or inability of the elect of the people becomes by the Constitution president of the Republic also took place on the same Day. The successful candidate in believed to be Senor Benito Juarez of the fro Esisto or Ultra democratic Branch of the Liberal party cordon Lort being classed with the Mode rados. There seems to have been an understanding and entire Accord Between the two parties. The elections in the District and so far As Beard from elsewhere passed off in the most quiet and orderly manner. Indeed the Pratt d Union complains of the want of ardor and enthusiasm on the part of the people in the exercise of a right which ties at the foundation of the institutions of the the election for deputies for the capital took place on sunday the 12th inst. And resulted a the Complete Triumph of the Liberal party. The Prospect of a War with Spain however seems to occupy most of the attention of our neighbors at the present time. The alarm has already become serious. Among other things the Secretary of the Interior has addressed a formal circular to the governors of the several states on the subject. It begins by stating that Gen. Lafragua the mexican envoy had not yet been honorable received in Bis official capacity and intimating that notwithstanding everything had been done to Avert it a rupture must inevitably take place declares that full of Confidence in the Justice of her cause Mexico awaits with calmness the course which events will take and that if War must come relying upon the patriotism of her citizens she is ready to meet it and finally Calls upon the governors of the several states to bold the National guards under their command ready for whatever order in the mean time to transmit Mil reports of their number and efficiency to the proper ministry at the Federal capital. In connection with this subject the so National says that in Case of a War with Spain Comonfort will place himself at the head of the army in which Case Juarez would be president of the Republic. The legislature of Frebla has authorized the governor to contract for the equipment of 4000 of the National guards of that state in the shortest time possible. Other and similar preparations to meet the invading enemy continue to be made throughout the Republic. The Money Market. The London Bankers circular of july 4tl contains the following remarks on the future of the Money Market the opinions on the present condition of the Money Market though More hopeful Are still devoid of a steady Confidence the High rate of interest which has now to Long prevailed has made great inroads into Many of the most solvent and Well conducted mercantile and manufacturing firms. The continuation of this process Cun not but prove highly injurious to the general state of Trade and Commerce it is however with us u question of Gold or no Gold. If we can retain it our Confidence is supported but if not then we Are in a constant state of uneasiness. If we Laok abroad we can scarcely indulge in the Hope that we can retain More than our fair share of the precious metals. We Are at present receiving in return for our immense shipments outward Large quantities of Gold and Silver but atthe sacrifice of our manufacturers for it a impossible from the state of our Money markets for some time past that any profits can be realized As these have been absorbed by the High prices of raw materials and the High rates of discounts charged upon Bills. Taking an external View of the Money Market the demand appears Likely to be heavy for some time to come on the continent. The capital necessary to to paid up by the Batik of France Aud the demands by other companies Are very considerable these demands extend Over a great portion of Germany and will Leatto great depreciation in securities. But Thede mands on French account Are not alone for France her financial ramifications through such institutions As the credit Mobilizer extend Over the whole continent of Europe. With such an aspect of things the demands for Money will continue to expand rather than diminish. War Between Spain Ana Mexico. War the last resort of civilized people would at last seem to be imminent Between Spain and Mexico. Considering the natural relation of the two countries to each other and to the world it would appear almost impossible but unless there be an unusual amount of blustering and bravado on both sides War would seem to be near and inevitable. The mexican government indeed publishes authoritatively to the world in so Many words that it cannot yield to the demands of Spain it seems moreover to take for granted that War is inevitable and is openly preparing for the work. On the other hand we have the equally positive and authoritative Assurance from Madrid that the Spanish government will continue to insist and that regardless of consequences on its original demand the very same the mexican Cabinet declare they cannot yield to without blemish to the National Honor it has already despatched a Fleet and troops to the mexican Waters and otherwise assumed a most threatening and Bellicose attitude. There must then be borne inglorious backing Down on one Side or the other else War is certainly inevitable. It would in fact appear that the negotiations at Madrid have already been broken off at whose instance under what Cironi stances or with what Prospect of resumption the Telegraph does not inform us. The mexican papers Tell us of instructions having been forwarded to Madrid which in the language of the extraordinary of the 8th, Good authority would effectually bring the Long pending Spanish question to a close one Way or the other in the course of the next two months " but of the exact state of these instructions or by what mail transmitted we have no information. Judging however by the general Tenor of advises from both countries it must have been some time in the Early part of the last month in which Case it is More than probable they constituted the basis of negotiation at the recent conferences. We read at All events of Gen. Lafragua s having submitted an ultimatum a step he would hardly have taken without fresh and explicit instructions from Home of their being for a time under consideration of their final rejection and now of a parting interview Between the two ministers. It is quite certain therefore that Mexico has done All in this matter she Felt called upon to do for the Sake of peace and has determined at length if necessary to Appeal to the sword. If this be the real state of the fact we do not see but Spain will at length for the credit of her Good name be forced into a War which notwithstanding her numerous threats we Are Bure she cannot sincerely desire. We cannot indeed but think she has been handsomely outwitted in this matter. Whatever May have been her real object in pressing this ugly controversy she cannot but know that War of any kind in the Gulf to which she was a party would prove most disastrous to her interests therein. On the other hand if we May judge from their journals nothing would be More popular with the i mexican people and with reason too if As asserted in the Peninsula they cherish feelings of enmity to the Mother country or her american . O. Pio aunt. Col. Jack w Ashington correspondent of the new York Herald in his letter of the 21st, inst., stated that col. Jack Hays had been removed from the Surveyor generalship of California for having exceeded the appropriations made by Congress by nearly $175,000." that correspondent was mistaken. From the most reliable bourse we have ascertained that col. Hays was not removed but that his commission having expired he was not re appointed. It a True that col. Hays exceeded the appropriation made by Congress by $175,000, but it is not True that the colonel is to be considered in honorable exile while in Utah. The real state of the Case is this that a Man of the extraordinary nerve and courage of col. Hays is very much needed in Utah and for that reason the president has thought fit to Transfer him to the Surveyor generalship of that territory. The administration of Naidert his Transfer no imputation upon the Honor of col. Hays. Washington mates. Spanish Fleet in the Spanish naval Force in the mexican Waters at the present time is said to be quite respectable in Point of numbers. It consists of one ship of the line the Label 2d, of tuns described As a magnificent specimen of naval architecture two frigates two heavy corvettes five Brigantine four schooners eleven steamers and seven transports. This is rather an unusual show for Spain to make in the Golf and must mean something. Confusion of Washington correspondent of the Baltimore Sun writing on the 6tate of parties As at present organized in this country Suys the state of patties in the country at this time is somewhat confused. The old whig party of the Northern states went Over chiefly to the republicans or to the know nothings and the remainder to the democrats at the late presidential election. In the South the whigs fused with the democrats or the know nothings. There Are signs everywhere that the last named organization cannot be maintained and will be abandoned. The know nothings of the North Are it appears preparing to go Over Al most in amass to the republicans. The big element of the party revolts at this fusion and will go Bank to the whig Camp where an Independent few Atill keep their the be publican party brought together under political excitement finds its Bonds very weak and every future election will show a diminution of its strength. Thousands of them All who Are reasoning and conservative men Are Well satisfied with the Walker Kansas policy and disapprove of the insubordinate and factious spirit of the Topeka men. The question is where shall they go events partly local partly National must determine that. Things now tend either to a reorganization of the old National whig party or to a fusion of All conservative elements into the democratic party. The be publican party of new York have not used their Power with such Wisdom and discretion As affords a Promise of continued local predominance and no one will be surprised at the next state election to witness a political revolution. The calculations which have been made upon the Success of the republicans in i860 Are without any solid basis for the party instead of growing has Bbown already signs of decadence. The August and fall elections for Congress in several Southern states Are looked to with Bome interest a India Tiodos of the Fate of americanism in that Quarter. There is scarcely a doubt that he democratic party will have the organization of the House of representatives. In Tho next Congress neither North americanism nor South americanism will make much show but it appears that a new party a Central american party May disclose itself a party which May advocate a More decided and rigorous policy in regard to our relations with Central America than that which the administration May put Forth. The vice president. Ireneaus of the new York observer who is travelling at the South was lately a guest at a wedding a Lexington Kentucky where he met the Hon. John c. Breckinridge vice president of the United states. thus describes his person manners and Domestic state John c. Breckinridge Nice president of the United states waa one of the gusts at the wedding. The rough portraits of him that stared every body in the face last fall give but a poor a Kenesy of thib extraordinary Man who at a Youthful period of life unexampled has been called to preside Over the most August body of men in this country. His form is tall erect and commanding his countenance grateful and his conversation indicates a sober intelligent and thinking Man. With a Lovely and accomplished wife and Sweet children he resides in a modest cottage but one Story High shaded deeply with old Trees a Little Way out of own. I could not but Admire the simplicity of our Republican institution when i saw that this great people had come to this empowered cot to find a Man to preside Over its Senate and perhaps to fill its chair of state.

To Mith. Fifty Kittens were received on Board the Schooner As a part of the assorted cargo. On the voyage very rough weather was experienced. At first the tars attributed the rapid succession of gales to the Comet but one old Sailor told the Crew that it was nothing outside the vessel that occasioned the storm that one cat waa enough to Send any ship to Davy Jones locker and As they had fifty on Board not a Man of them stood a Chance of Selling foot on dry land again. This was enough for the superstitious Crew and the cats were immediately demanded of the Captain Given up and drowned. By a singular coincidence the storm thereupon abated. The owner of the cats has now sued the owners of the vessel for damages laying the value of the Cata at $50 a piece or $2,500.-Albany express. The aet of years ago during the heat of a Coffee speculation in Boston when everybody was holding on waiting for the article to Advance an old merchant keen As a razor whose store was packing from the first to the fourth floor with prime Green Eio concluded from signs which Newell understood that prices had reached their Acme. was too old a hand at the Bellows not to know that the moment he with his immense Stock began to sell an alarm would be taken and Down go the prices. Quietly sending off a pretty stiff invoice of the article to auction and giving t e auctioneer a Good Humoured hint to mind his own business he attended the Sale and bid readily at prevailing prices for the Coffee. Other holders that knew he had twice As much on hand As they had concluded that it was Safe to buy when he did and so stood up manfully and bought largely. While old Carmen were tumbling his purchases in at the front door of his warehouse five times As Many were carrying away Coffee from the Back door. Of the next Day of the Sale he bid As freely As Ever and this continued for some two or three weeks. One Day be failed to appear at a Coffee Sale and most of the dealers took the alarm and prices declined a Little.

The exports or lumber from our Gulf ports seems to increase steadily and is destined to become of great importance in the future. The Export from the Southern states bordering immediately on the Atlantic is already of great value and importance. The foreign Export of articles the growth of the Forest from the United states reaches ten or twelve millions of dollars per annul of which amount the Seuth produces a Larga proportion besides furnishing Large quantities of lumber and ship Timber to the Northern states. We Are glad to perceive that Mississippi is beginning to profit by the example of Florida and Alabama in this particular. The Eastern Clarion says that a valuable lumber business is growing up in the sea Cost counties and which finds its out let to the markets of the world chiefly through the ship Island Harbor. The exports of lumber from that Harbor according to the last returns we have seen Are at the rate of about $800,000 per annul. In Texas Sabine is the Only port from which lumber is exported. Our monthly reports show the great importance of this article in our Commerce and we Are glad to see that the Prospect for its growth still continues highly favourable. We doubt not that lumber will continue to be an article second Only to Cotton in the exports of Eastern Texas. Ben Tao Kaaa j. Buafo. The demise of no Man has Ever occurred in Texas or can soon Ensor calculated to create More profound and Universal sorrow than that of Thomas j. Risk a name endeared to every texan by More than Twenty years of patriotic Public service commencing with the first Dawn of the revolution in 1835 and dosing Only with his sudden mysterious and doubly painful death. Thomas j. Bosk was born in South Carolina and removed from Georgia to Texas in the Spring of 1885, locating at Nacogdoches which has been Bis residence Ever since. When the revolution broke oat in 1886, he was elected to the consultation which assembled at san Felipe in november. waa next Eho Aen to the convention of March 1886, which declared our Independence. Immediately afterwards president Burnet called him into his Cabinet As Secretary of War in which capacity he appeared on the Field of san Jacinto and won the admiration of his comrades and imperishable Fame by Bis Noble bearing on that memorable occasion. After the army had taken up its position on the lava a and Guadalupe Gen. Rusk became its commander in chief and maintained unbounded popularity among the troops during that period of destitution and necessary inertness among them. Returning to Nacogdoches he was elected to the Congress of 1887 at the session of 1888-9, be waa chosen chief Justice of the supreme court a position he resigned in 1840, having presided in january of that year at the first session Ever held of that highest tribunal of the be Publio. On repeated occasions he commanded the Eastern Texas volunteers in campaigns against the Indiana. In october 1888, he fought them and gained a signal Victory at the Kickapoo Village near the Neches and in july 1389, he commanded a regiment in the Well contested Battles of the 12th and 13th of july against the cherokees and their associate bands in which their chief the bowl fell. His name was a terror to the red Man of the Eastern Frontier. During the period from 1840 to 1345, Gen. Busk sought to devote himself exclusively to the Law and built up the largest practice of any lawyer in f the a Public but in the latter year he was Bent to the convention which framed our Constitution and by that body elected its president unanimously. By the first state legislature in february 1346, he was unanimously elected to the Senate of the United states and last March completed his second term. From the fourth of March 1857, lie waa also re elected for a third term of six years having six sessions to run at the time of his death though serving but five sessions under the classification by virtue of his first term. In All the Publio relations to which we have referred Gen. Busk stood at the head of his associates and colleagues As a Brave sagacious and untiring general and As a sound thorough and comprehensive statesman. As an american senator perhaps no Man in a period of eleven years has Ever erected a More enviable reputation or attained to a More honorable and enviable influence. Without the towering Genius of Clay Webster and Calhoun he yet Posa eased practical greatness As a statesman in an eminent degree a love of truth and Justice a Devotion to the interests of Bis state and the whole nation and a nobleness of bearing in personal Intercourse which combined to give him More influence in the. Senate for several years past than any other member of that August body. But in the Meridian of life Juat when the nation began to regard him As one of her noblest sons he is stricken Down by an event too painful to contemplate. The name of Rusk is written in everlasting letters on the history of Bis loved state and will also be perpetuated in that of the Empire county of Texas and the flourishing town of Busk in Cherokee county. We have but hastily glanced at the career of the lamented Patriot and statesman whose death will be Learned every where with sensations of propound sorrow. It devolves upon the pen of history to do Justice to his memory. Freta arise a. We Are permitted to make the following extract from a private letter just received from tha Frontier of Sonora by an army officer in this pity. The condition of affairs on the Boundary of our new territory of Arizona fully sustains the statements of the people in their petition to Congress for a separate territorial organization and imperatively demands the Early action of the National legislature Fost Gumacal Jane 3,1857. Or. Kippin has just arrived from the Arizona mine and represents an awful state of affairs. During the time that or. Bill the superintendent of the mine waa below in Sonora it waa unsafe for him to pass out unless accompanied by the mexican general Don Guadalupe prose and even with him it was dangerous. No news from Sonora not even an arrival for the last Twenty Days. God knows what a going on though of one thing we Are certain no american never mind who he is can go into Sonora with passports or without. Very truly your Friend p. B. Beady. To Lieut. Mowat u. S. Army. It is necessary to observe that or. Brady is an old traveler in Sonora has traded there Beveral years thoroughly understands the Spanish language and the mexican character and his letter is therefore peculiarly reliable. Washington Union. A of Pant Well known gentlemen of this City says the Albany times recently formed a Copartnership. One has a very Brief name the other has one four times As Long As the first. Painters charge so much per foot for lettering signs and As the new firm were obliged to have a new sign an order was give and it was speedily put in a place. Bat a few Days before the Bill was presented when he of the Short name made the declaration that he should be barged Bat one third of the whole expense As his name occupied but one third of the sign i this reasoning was not perceivable to the party of the second party and a dissolution a talked of As neither of the firm will Bank Down. This is the last and most singular Causa for a division of opinion that we have heard of. The Poirior Overland Road Little Book Gazette of the 25th ult., says on wednesday last we had the pleasure of a few minutes conversation with col. James. B. Leech who is in charge of the above company and who is engaged in surveying a route for the purpose of carrying the Overland mail from the Mississippi River to the Pacific. The party consists of forty Wagon and 100 men and will strike an air Lide from Here to Preston Texas from which Point it will travel nearly in a Westerly direction passing a Little North of fort Belknap Twenty five Miles North of fort cad Bourn Crosb the Peacos River at the Emigrant crossing Cross the Llano West of Cardo on the North route and strike the Eio Grande fifteen Miles North of Elpaso. Thence the Survey will continue to fort Yuma and san Francisco by the Best and most practicable route. The the different varieties of this Beautiful trailing Shrub Are the eur Geon Scarlet monthly the dutch monthly Sweet scented and the chinese. The first named is an american Root perfectly Hardy the foliage Evergreen the Flowers trumpet shaped of a Rich soar let exterior tinged with Orange within this Plant grows rapidly throws out a a multitude of branches and has a very Rich appearance. The dutch monthly has a yellow Flower variegated with red or purple produced in succession through the summer and autumn until hard frosts when the Flower opens the Interior is pure White which changes to a Cream color and from that to an Orange giving the Cluster a Rich and variegated appearance. The chinese honeysuckle is a Choice variety with Evergreen leaves and delicate Flowers through the season it blooms with an Exham Solesb profusion presenting from Early in summer till late in autumn Rich wreaths of Flowers various in tint and of an exquisite Orange Flower perfume. The White italian honeysuckle has Pale yellow almost White Flowers. Business prospects. The Boston traveller considers at some length the prospects of the fall Trade and concludes As follows the omens for the coming season Are More auspicious. If the autumn is genial As it most generally is after a cold and wet Spring we May look Tor a Good if not a great Trade comparatively unaffected by the decline in the speculative value of wild lands and earner Lota in inbuilt cities. St. Louie be publican of the 18th says that the Coroner was summoned the Day previous to hold thirteen inquests the most if not All of them upon the bodies of persons who had died from exposure to the Sun. We see numerous similar cases reported in other cities. Although cases of Sun stroke Are almost unknown in Texas it in not amiss to repeat the advice of the be publican that it would be Well for workmen exposed to the bub to Stop off All labor during the heat of the Day. It is bad Economy to endanger health and life in order to gain a few hours labor these Long Days when there in to Little necessity for haste. A Steamboat Captain was badly fooled at St. Paul Minnesota a Short time since. Captain Harris whipped a or. Tro Lott editor of the times pretty severely under Tbs impression that Crofott was one of the editors a the Pioneer and demo crat. We Are not complimented by the m. Ceu be. Whether Crofott Felt the death of g in. Rusk creates a vacancy in the u. S. Senate Wabia the next legislature will have to fill but for the credit of our state we Trust his remains May become cold in the grave before the names of Genf Emen Are proposed for the position. To we have no further details relative to the death of Gen. Rusk excepting a Tew Linea from or. Thomas p. Ochiltree from which it appears he was not killed instantly but lingered for a Short time though doubtless in an unconscious condition. Opt Trade with new exports and shipments from new Orleans of Domestic produce to Texas during the last Quarter were to the value of $448,664, according to the custom House returns but in reality doubtless exceeds a half a million of dollars. Texas is importing articles from that a to to the annual value of about a million and a bait of dollars. Most of these articles ought to be and doubtless ultimately will be produced in our own state not Only in quantities sufficient to Supply the Home demand but also furnishing a surplus for exportation. Louisiana sugar is no doubt that the sugar crop of the United states will be again Short. A Well informed planter of Louisiana says that the crop is now so Small and backward that the most favourable future can not prevent this and an Early fall or unfavourable weather May reduce the product of the growing crop to the figures of last year or even less the Universal statement thai i hear upon the whole coast is my stand is Good but the canes Are very Small. It is asserted that it will take a most favourable season to give 200,000 Hogsheads and with bad weather drouth or a Early fall there is no estimating with any degree of certainty Bow Little May be produced in Louisiana.

The writer asserts that persons who by their votes of their influence endorse the decision of the supreme court in the dred Soott Case Are doing All in their Power to rivet the chains of tha slave to make servitude involuntary oppressive Servi tudo the Cornerstone of our National govern ment and at the same time to secure the moral assassination of a this benevolent and Law abiding Christian says that those who approve of such things Are mors guilty than those who do them. continues our churches cannot tolerate Fellowship with slaveholders indeed some clergymen think their Bonis in peril by associating with or corresponding with those who consent to meet with them As equals.

But the effect of such assumptions will be to destroy respect equally for religion its ministers and its ordinances.

One of the most serious evils heretofore experienced in the education of children in thib City has been the want of permanency in nearly All the schools owing mainly to the want of cooperation on the part of parents and to the Lack of interest in the bub Sot of education among the Public generally. It is equally the interest and the duty of All Good citizens to Aid in building up and sustaining Oohoola for the proper education of our youth at Home.
