. __ ? VEW YORK TIERALD > 1'ttrkt V\ i lini , Ui'iolx i M.IIIB. '1 hi' Sti amcr, I'Uere will soon begin to bo some anxiety felt i >r the Caledonia, as well as lor the Great Britain. .Site is now in her .seventeenth day. Mora Troops Ordered Into the Field. We perceive that onr government is exercising more vigor than ever in prosecuting the war with Mex eo. The Secretary of War, it is ?aid, has | called upon the State of Pennsylvania to furnish , >ix regiments of men, and it is expected that New \ irk will be called on in a short time to iurni-h her quota. We understand that our citizens ' have been engaged for some duys past in polishing their accoutrements and putting their traps in or ler, so as to be atile to take up their march a' a day's notice. I'll se measures indicate a determination on the part of our government to use more means and .renter strength than it has yet done, in order to ti nig tlie Mexicans to terms, and conquer a pea.-e. 'Fa s is undoubtedly the best nnd the wisest po- j iiey that can be pursued towards our unruly I neghbors, and one that will have the desired ef- , lect. LetTampico be taken, and a large force concentrated in its neighborhood, ready to march ; to the capital, aud terms of peace will soon be proffered to us. and the war ended. As lorg as that important point is in the hands o the Mexican*, nnd also the city of Vera Cru/, it i* idle to hope for a settlement of our ditlleultic-i, but Tampico or Vera Cruz once iu our | po--c-*iiin, the war would he all but finished. of Monterkv.?The gallant charge of i the :>d regiment'of the I nited States Infantry, at I Monterey, and the tremendous loss sustained by j that uoble regiment, was a parallel to the deeds of ( tin 74th ot the British army in India, commanded j by the Duke of Wellington, at that time General j We I Lesley. i >ur /alir.nt 3d, consisting of four or tivehundied *n m, in storming the fortifications of the enetny, lost nearly a.11 us officers, and all the rank and file, 1 with the exception of seventy-one men. l' At the battle of Assaye, with the Mahrattas, in I the Deccan, General Wellesley says " One company ot the pickets alone, of the 74th, con- j sistiug of one officer and fifty men, lost their officer and loity-iour rank anil tile." Nothing, however, could airest the steady advance o I the 74th, which moved direct upon Assaye. The British loss was severe, and the victor ' found himself weakened by a loss of one-third of i the whole British force. " The fire," said the Duke, "was so severe, that I doubted ifl should \ be able to prevail on the troops to advance. It , was the fiercest battle that had ever been seen in India." Old Rough and Ready says that his severe loss j was owing to the eagerness of his men in pressing on. He is now ordered to advance; and in all probability, we shall have, at San Luis de Putosi, another parallel for the Iron Duke. Tuk Wages ok Females.?We think it full j tli-it tin; eyes of the community were open- ; < J , i the gross impositions practised on our fe- j male operatives. There is a large class of females n our midst, who depend solely on the labor of. their hands for support. They are variously ein- 1 ployed?at cap making, umbrella sewing, shirt . making, tailoring, bonnet making, &c., and the wages they m general receive from their hardhearted employers, are altogether insufficient to maintain them in any degree of comfort. These girls seldom make more than twentyfive cents a day, and not always even that sum. On. of this there are many drawbacks, the un. principled employer often laying down arbitrary rules for their guidance during working hours, an infraction of which rules is visited by the imposition of a line, which diminishes the already wretched amount of their weekly pittance, j mid reduces it even below die sum they have to pay f-T board. We see those poor girls walking at evening from their workshops to their homes, perhaps in a distant part ot the city, their clothing insufficient to protect thein front the cold? their delicate forms shivering in the cold blt^t? whilst at the same time their employers are luxuriating in the wealth wrung from the unrewarded toil of these poor girls. We are by no means desirous of exciting the envy of the poorer classes against the rich, nor do we join in the agrarian cry of those dreamy visionaries, who would at once enrich the poor by taking from the wealthy their honestly acquired gains. We know that the best of measures have their wicked and foolish advocates, and this question of a just and equitihle reward of labor has been so mixed up wth Fourierism, humbug, and cant of every description, that it is difficult to approach it without subjecting ourselves to the suspicion of entertaining extravagant and absurd views on the sub- I ject of labor und its reward. But the evil is too The wages of young female* being so low, and tTifcif outlay foT necessaries being greatly above their income, it is not at all surprising that so many of them should fall into a life of moral degradation rather than be dependent on the will of r heir haul taskmasters for a miserable livelihood, i tiose re red in the lap of luxury, who have ner er known the pangs of hunger, and all the bitter i ardships of pinching poverty, cannot imagine t hat any amount of aulfering would drive them lothe commission of crimes; but before condemning tlioso unfortunates who prowl our streets at light, and seek in the wages of their infamy a precarious subsistence, they should reflect how lo.ig and agonizing was the struggle between the proinp nt;s of principle and the bitterness of want, before virtue finally succumbed. That man is not to be envied for his wealth who enriches himself on the toil of these poor Kin?-, uiu w in), in auauion 10 mo misery his sordid ne 9 lias caused them whilst in his employ, has the further remorse of having eventually, by his fraudulent and miserly system of imposition driven them to destruction. e trust that public attention will be drawn to this matter, and that same check upon tha avarice of employers will be suggested. Latk from Yccatam.?We have received iilcs of FA Amtgo del Putblet, published at Campeachy, to the 18th September, but find nothing of pecular interest. The appointment of Sr. D. Miguel Barbachano, President of the Republic, to a seat in Santa Anna's cabinet, ns Secretary of Stnte, is rpoken of. The evidences of the public feeling are decidedly in favor of re-annexation to the Mexican uovernment. nrnvidrtil nlwavstlmt tbpir demnnds ara complied with?in having the treaty of 1843 earned into effect. Wo are assured by the gentleman who favored u? with the above papers, and who has been residing all summer at Cam peachy, that the rej>ortt of the assistance rendered to the Mexicans by the Yucatanese an titie to a letter. I'owder and military stores of all kinds are shipped to Yucatan, and from thence reshipped to Mexico under Yucatanese colors, no duty being demanded. In this way that neutral'pow<?r reaps a harvest in hleping those wi'h whom we are at war, at the same time being allowed privileges by our government which are openly perverted to our injury. This will all be stopped now that Yucatan has again become a part ol Mexico. The Loss or Two New York Stxsmkrs.

Amkrican Smr Building ?If there is one thing j more than another that proves the enterprising character of our merchants, ship builders, cap- ; tains?in fact all that are engaged remotely or intimately with that great civilizer of mankindcommerce, it is the great and laudable rivalry : existing between them, in building and construct- > Mig steamships and sailing packets. Scarcely a week elapses during which we do not see one or more of these majestic vessels move from the ship yards into the waters of our bay, each successive one superior to the preceding one, and all bearing evidence of the munificence and liberality of our merchants, and the high skill ofour ship builders and inecha< ics. Yesterday a new steamship called the New Orleans, was launched from the yard of Mr. Wm. j H. Brown, at the loot of Twelfth street, East ri- j ver, a description of whieh we gave in this paper j a few days since. She is owned by Mr. Charles Morgan, and will run between New Orleans and Galveston. This morning, at 9 o'clock, the new packet ship American Eagle will be launched from the ship yard of Messrs. Westervelt and McKay. This vessel is a splendid specimen of American skill, and will be, in point of construction, strength, model, magnificence and comfort, equal to any 1 that was ever built here. She will form one of the London line of packets, owned by Mr. John Griswold, and will sail on tho twenty-fourth of November next, under the command of Captain John M. Chadwick, one of our most experienced sailing masters. Her burden is one thousaud tons, and her accommodations lor passengers are not excelled by any ship afloat. There was another beautiful packet ship added to our already extensive fleet, about six weeks ago, called the Bavaria, of one thousand tons burden. She was built by Mr. Wm. H. Webb, of this city, lor Mr. Whitlock, owner of Whitlock's line of Havre packets, and will be under the command of Captain llowe, late of the Emerald. We had the pleasure of looking at the interior arrangements ol this beautiful vessel, and could scarce realize that we were on board of a ship. The cabins are constructed so that not a single inch of space is unoccupied ; and yet they are airy and spacious. The ornamental work is composed of mahogany and rosewood. The ladies' cabin contains four state-rooins. with two berths in each, and the gentlemen's cabin contains thirteen state-rooms; all providing ample accommodations for twenty-live passengers ; the whole fabric forming a wonderful piece of mechanical neatness, compactness, and superior timsh. ' We have already g ven an extended notice of the new packet ship New World, which was built at Boston for|Mr. Grinnell, of this city, the is now in our harbor, and will soon take Iter place in her line. There are several o her vessels of less and greater tonnage, in course ol construction; among which are the vessels that will compose the new line of American steamships to England, and steamboats and other craft without limit; and it is expected that during the year 1S4T this branch of industry will he in a still more flourishing condition. Tut Political Revolution.?As far as ascertained, the wines have gained, in the recent elec uuwo nt vn:i?inia, unio, t'ennsyivanut, rtnd probably in Maine, thirteen member* of Congress, making a difference of twenty-six against the democrats. Thk Militia Law or ruts Statb.?We give in another column the proclamation of Governor Wright, relative to the militia law of New York. It will be read with interest at this time. i V. a. Circuit Court. Befoie Judge Rett*. Oct 20 ?1The term of this Court openel on this day (Tuesday,) and the calendar win unusually light presenting only those cases of trifling import, consisting of assault ami attempt to create a revolt. The following Orund Jury were sworn : Ira Bum'ge, John Uonsall, William Cunningham, John Dunn, Hamuel Kioat, Daniel Hart, Joel K alley, Nehemiah >tiller, James I'inkerton, Wm Hhennon, Anthony V. Winans, Horatio N. Caun, f.ewis M. Decamp, Krancls N. Domintck. Thomas Hardy, John Townsend. Daniel Caily, and Levi Burr. Ilia Honor briefly charged the jury, who retired to the room, and found a true bill against ten of the crew of the Hudson packet ship for endeavor to rreata a revolt, on her late trip from Liverpool to New York. Tho Court | then adjourned to thia (Wednesday) forenoon. gggesgsm-i . vt a . Theatrical. Pshs The nt w play of the " King of the < omnr,on?' was repeated last evening, with Mr. Anderson in the principal rliaracter. This play, which is founded on an incident in the life of James 6th, King of Scotland, abounds with stirring scenes and incidents, and the principal part gives room for the exercise, in no ordinary degree, of jMr. Anderson's tine declamatory powers. The plot is as follows King James is desirous of making resistance to the encroachments of the Kuglish, but finds most of his nobles either toodreacheroua or too timid to sustain him. Buckie, an outlaw, (Dyott.) discovers to him a bargain between several of the nobles and Sir Adam Woir. (Barry,) uncle of Ruckle, whom be Inn dispossessed of his property, an emissary of h.ngland, who pays them a monthly stipend as u consideration for their withholding their aid from James, an<l using their influence to dissuade him from making war. The king goei in disguise to Adam Weir'i house, with a view lo satisfy himself of the truth of Buckie'i story On his way be is attacked by robbers and is rescued by Malcolm Young, (Stark,) a relation of Sir Adam Weir, whom the latter has plundered of his property, and forced to take priestly orders. Sir Adam W'eir entrusts a parcel for the traitorous nobles to King lam^s, taking him to be an honest yeoman, and upon the King's retnrn to court, he is met hy the Bishop (Pearson) who accuses James's favorite minister, Seton, (Sutherland) of treason As Seton is being led to execution bis innocence is discovered, and he is restored to favor. Toe packet ot letters given by Adam Weir to James was given by the latter to Ouckie. to be brought to him in open court, and at the appointed hour they are produced. The treason being discovered, the nobles declare their penitence and are pardoned, and Sir Adam Weir retires in disgrace. The under plot hangs on the loves of Malcolm and Madeline Weir, (Sirs Hunt) the latter of whom, is destined by her father to be the bride of Mungo Small (Fisher.) a fopling usher at court By the influence of the king, Malcolm's ordination is cancelled, und he is made hippy in the possession ot Madeline. The nobles , renew their allegiance, and the king, in prospect of a ' prosecution ol a war witn Kugland, has his patriotic wish- 1 es gratified. The play has a great many faults, hut is < admirably adapted for stage representation. The pait of , King Junius is one which requires a very powerful ge niiii to'grusp; and, an much as any other we , an think of, demands the utmost versatility und pliancy of mind, voice, (feature and features. No man who is not a masterly doclaimer run attempt it; and we do no more than justice to Mr. Anderson in saying that he is the man most tit for it of nny at present on the stage, either in this country or in Kuropc The sudden transitions from stormy wrath to well counterfeited rotir tesy in his lirst interview with Sir Adam Weir, in the Jd act, exhibited genius of the highest order ; and his line, ferveut, hearty declamation, nil through the piece, not empty rant, or stugo twattle. but of that kind that seems to come from the heart, nnl goes directly to the heart, called forth bursts of warm and unulfected applause. Mr. i Anderson is unquestionably a great actor. He possesses to a great extent, that electric power that thrills and sways the feelings of an audience, and without which no man, however great his taieut, or deep his study can be a great actor. Wo noticed one fault last evening, arising from Mr. Anderson carrying his naturalness to an extreme, that is, a slight redundancy of manner (we cannot say of voice or gesture, particularly,) in one or two scenes. Next to the principal part, we must mention, in terms of high praise, Stark's Malcolm Voung. Wo always entertained the idea that this gentleman had talent of a high order, which it required but time and application to bring out. But we confess our surprise at the naturalness, breadth, grace and effectiveness of his acting last evening. We hope to see him one day attain a high rank in his profession. Dyott's 1 part was tame, but he mado the most of it. Bass as Laird Small, (a part unimportant to the denouement.) was very good. We need not praise Barry's acting, for he is always good. At the close of the piece, the house rose en musse, and called for Mr. Anderson's appearance before the curtain; and when that gentleman appeared in compliance with the call, he was received with most vociferous applouso. To-night the " King of the Commons" will be repeated. Bowedt Theatre.?We attended the last two nights at the superb pageant of " Montezuma, the last of the Aztecs " We do not hesitate to say that, in point of truth and fidelity to history, in costume, appointments and scenery, we have never seen it surpassed.^ is not merely the gorgeous properties to which we allude, but the spirit of enterprise and liberality exhibited throughout the whole. With regard to the former, we allude moie j particularly to the last scene?the siege and destruction i of the temple?the undertaking of which alone, without the success which accompanied, is sufficient to place the Bowery Theatre preeminently above every other in this dramatic department; and for the latter, the great expenditure to which the management has gone in the production of the piece. It is, without doubt, the most magnificent pageant this theatre has produced ; and as " the halls of the Mentezumas" have become provarbial, those who w sh to embody this fairy vision cannot do better than gratify their e>cs by the truthful yet fanciful creations of Mr. Heister. The costumes are all new, Mexican and Spanish ; and we hare never beheld such a superb coup d'izit as the Halls pf Montezuma presented, emblazoned as they were by the congregated banners of the different tribes (the fanciful aud rich devices of Mr. Williams), and the glittering costumes (the tasteful i handicraft of Mr. Walkei). l'he drama has one great advantage?it is taken verbatim from Maturin's romance, which is characterized throughout by as pure and nervous native English as we have read in the most eminent of English authors. Mr. Wemyss deserves un bounded credit, and exhibit! the moat practical know ledge of his profession. Ureknwich Thcstbe.?The performances herd this evening willbe.for the benefitof Messrs.

Bowaav Ciaccs.?Another overflowing house attended last evening at the Amphitheatre, to see the Italian Trick Clown, Kelix Carlo, go through his numberless | antics. Every night this original genius presents sonic- | thing new, and has ns great a collection of jokes, both practical and s|>?rulative. as the renowned Sam-ho Panza. His antipodean peiformances (dancing on his head among other matters) are perfect miracles, and his flexi- | ble and grotesque exploits are not only the most comic and curious we bave ever seen, but matters of interest , to men of science. Sr. Carlo performs again to-night. < We had forgot to mention the horsemanship of the hoy I Stout, a pupil we understand of Mr Wm Stout, the j < equestrian, as being a very superior rider, quite equal, if not superior, to any of his age in the profession Wai.xpt 8tsr.iT Thistic, Pmi.Ai.nri.Min.?The C.'nontele says, that on the first appearance of Mr Kor rest, in the first scene of Hamlet, the audience received . him with applause.

Itluslcal Intelligence. Camii.i.o Sivobi ?This great artist gives his fourth ind last concert on Friday evening, at the Tabernacle. After that, he goes to Boston. There is no longer i my doubt as to the greatness of his genius. His j Maying at hit last concert, even in a greater degree han on former occasion!, established his fame as the greatest successor of Paganini. He has set criticism at i leflance by the witchery of his genius, and has elicited rom vast audiences the most rapturous applause. When j luch effects are produced as the sort of spell exercised ; iver his auditory by Sivori. there must be something ! nore than mere talent. The voice of the entire press of he city is loud in admiration of his wonderful playing, ind such being the effect he has already produced, he nay look forward to an unusually brilliant career in this :ountry. Ma. Bcrkr.?This distinguished master of the violin jives a concert to-morrow evening at the Tabernacle.? j Mr. Buike has engaged Leopold do Meyer, the lion 1 pianist, Madame Pico, Miss Northall, and Mr. P. j Mayer for the occasion. The entertainment will, j :herefore, be abundantly rich and varied. Mr. j Burke will petform a giand concerto by De Beaut; a lanta-ia, and the "Carnival of Venice," by j irnst Be Meyer will perform his grand fantasia and .-ariations on Scmiiamis, and a duo from William Tell, , villi Burke. Loder's band is engaged for the occasion LV'n Imva reason to believe that this will he one of ike nost successful concerts of the season. Ls.ot'oi.d pc Msvir.?We find the following notice )f the lion pianist in the Bot'on Jidttrlittr of tho 19th n?t When De Meyer was last in Boston, ten months ago, le was interrupted in his professional pursuits, by an inury to his hand, which threatened to incapacitate him torn further developing his charming art In the course )f Thursday evening, nowever, the firmness of his playing proved that he had rvgained all the requisite com mand, to present his music in iubppropri.ite lorms It has been supposed by many that the peculiarities of De Meyer's performances are found in hold, rapid, and vigorous passages, that take the attention by storm, and hold it captive by surprise. But any one who listened to his first performance, the "introduction and Grand Fantasia on Hemiramis," must have felt the injustice of this The "Introduction'' was a quiet, gentle, unobtrusive bit of playing, wheie the notes fell upon the ear with a liquid grace truly delightful. He can command the thunder nigs of his instrument, but he can also command its most delicate whistlings The truth is, both styles ol play Ing are completely within his power; and, if he often indulges in the bold ami passionate, some apology mabe found in the preference shown to that class of passages by the popular demonatration of applause. That excellent "Introduction" was permitted to pass away quietly. and the applause was all reserved for the bold aud flotid exaggerations which sre at his command when ever the taste of his audiance seems to require them.? Having named what we felt to be an excellent point of tne evening's performances, we will name another, very different in character, but showing the perfection of his execution. In the ' Gtand Andante Keligioso," there was a lung passage where a double shake was contained, while at the same time ihe melody was prominent in a erics ol even marked notes. 11 De Meyer had performed but that one difficult passage, it would have entitled lum to distinction as a pianist He will give another aoncart thla even ng, at the Melodeon. He is to be aslisted by Miss Garcis, Miss Htone, Mr. Barksr, Mr Blessner, and Mr Lange. Cosirt of Soeclal Sessions. Before Recorder Scott and Aid. Smith and Compton.

This greetiy relieved her, but the wind and sea still kept inereasing with the advance of the day, and a council of the passengers and otllcers was held, and it was their unanimous opinion that the boat would certainly founder if she continued at sea, and that our only hope of saving tho lives of those on hoard was in running for the land, and if no favorable change took place in the weather, to beach her. We made the land at four in tho morning, and a few minutes after the engineer informed me that hi* principal pump had failed, and that the water was fait gaining.

At daylight, strong crews pulled off' two of the boatto our assistance, and took oft twelve more peranns, but they were uuable to return, and as a longer continuance on the wreck threatened inevitable destruction to us, we threw over the gangway plank, and myself, one ot the passengers, and the officer* trusted to its frail support to enable us to reach the beach -, not a life was lost nor a person injured.
