rtfci _ ?? _ NEW YORK HERALD. New York. WtdiiHdiijr, February 3,1847. Malls lor Kurojie. The packet ships Oxiord, Yeaton, lor Liverpool; St Nicholas, Eveleigh, lor Havre; Switzerland, Knight, for Havre; and Saracen, Hawkins, for Glasgow, will sail this morning, it the wincf permits, and we hopo it will permit, because these vessels are.lull of food for the starving thousands of Europe. These fine packet ship 1 will carry three days' later intelligence from America to Europe, and it will be of considerable importance to the merchants and masses on the other side of the Atlantic. In consideration of this fact, we have supplied ourselves with the Herald Jor Europe printed for the last steamer, which, with the New York Herald ol Monday, Tuesday, and particularly of to-day, will make excellent news remittances. Single copies, in wrappers, can be obtained at the otfi:e. Major General Taylor and the Administration?-Military Correspomleitcr. It was announced yesterday by telegraph that Mr Thompson's resolution has prevailed in the House of Representatives, and, of course, all the correspondence that has taken place between the War Department and Gen. Taylor from the time he rook his position at Fort Drown, opposite Matainoras, until the storming and taking of Monterey, will be produced and published to the world, excepting tha' wnicii may tie detrimental to the public interest. The object of this resolution is probably to clear the government of the imputations thrown upon it by the whig pres sand whig politicians throughout the country; and as it was introduced by a member of the democratic sclreol of politics, it is reasonable enough to suppose that he either felt sure, before hand, that nothing will appear that can at all militate against the administration or itrengthen the suspicions of General Taylor's friends, as [to its designs in regard to that otlicer, or that the member who introduced the resolutioa is one of the purest patriots of the age, and has called for the correspondence merely to place matters in a clear light before the public, without any reference to the whigs or democrats?the years 18-18 or 1862. This correspondence will, without doubt, cause a great sensation wherever it is read, not only among General Taylor's friends and the friends of the administration, but also among : those of General Gaines, General Jessup, Gene- I ral Scott, and, perhaps, other military men. It must, necessarily, have reference to General Jessup, incidentally, because that officer holds j the office of Quarter Master General, and was, j and is, according to the Union, invested with ' i \traoidinary and full powers in his department, j v. hich he was directed to use, as emergencies j liould arise; and because, also, the in- i direct changes which General Taylor makes j ;amst the administration, would refer to . that officer as much as to them. We are extremely sorry at this unfortunate af- j tair. We hope that it will act as a caution to mili- j tary men hereafter to bo careful of what they , write, or at least of the persons to whom they direct letters containing their private thoughts.? j^vcry in in in ty man nas 01 course as mucti ngtit to entertain his private opinions of men and matters as people Of any other profession; but it is J extremely impolitic to commit those thoughts to paper and send it to a distance, to be indiscreetly published by indiscreet friends who received them. We have had one lamentable instance of i military men indulging in the cacoethtt scribendi ' too freely, by which one of our greatest heroes? one who has rcllected lustre on his country?was divested of one half of the glory attached to him by his services against his country's enemies. We hope, however, that nothing will appear in this case at all derogatory to General Taylor, llisbrilliant conduct in the war with Mexico has endeared him to the American people, and it outd be with feelings of regret and mortification to see anything calculated to lower him in the slightest degree in their opinion. One thing is certain in regard to the forthcoming correspondence. It will, to a certainty, either make or mar General Taylor as a candidate lor the Presidency We sincerely hope that it wilj not injure him for any position; but if it should have a tendency so to do, and be the means of fading, as much as a hreath, the bright laurels that encircle his brow, in the estimation of any portion of the people, uo matter of which party, we will not envy the feelings of the indiscreet person who gave to the press the first letter that produced the difficulty. We can yet hardly believe that General Gaines published the letter that is now creating so much conversation throughout the country. Mexican Plan of Operation ?We published on Monday last a letter lrom the city of Mexico, j translated from La Patria, of New Orb ans, purporting to give the Mexican plan of operation in ' the existing war. We are now informed that | Gen. La Vega was the writer of that letter. The 1 Patria, in reference to it, says:? In our last number we announced that we had receiv- j Ad a letter of the utmost interest and importance, written j lrom the city of Mexico, by a gentleman from this city, end an iu'imate friend of ours. The information given by this letter, will no doubt appear to many to be un- j worthy ofbelief, and we ourselves should not venture to publish it, did w? not pcrreneily know the author, and if we had not entire confidence in his integrity. And we oan also announce, that he is a gentleman whose relations givo him the best possible opportunities of acquiring a knowledge of those public affairs, which, in Mexico, cover come to light through the press. This almost states, in as many words, that La Vega was the author of the letter. Mexican Privateers?We understand that letters are in town from the city of Mexico, confirmed by intelligence from Havana, as per following extract:? " We are determined to carry on the war. General Santa Anna has already collected at Han Luis Potosi more Irian twenty-five thousand regular troops. Our letters of marque are operating - they will stiike in quarters where least expected, in the Mediterranean and Indian Seas, Sic. Wo shall see how our neighbors will feel then." Tftlnsbe true, and anv of these demi-semi Mexicans are caught on the high seas, tfeey will surely be hanged attho yard arm of some of our men-of-war. The poor devils will d'e as pirates. Mails by the Steamer Hibkrnia. ?This steamer left Boston on Monday for Halifux and Liverpool. Th? Tramcript ol that city says :? ' The royal mail steamer Hlbernis, Copt. Alexander fly lie, left this afternoon for Halifax and Liverpool, rvitb the monthly mail for Europe, and 47 passengers. Beside the above, -'i0 additional berths have been taken at Halifax. Among the passengers from this port for Liverpool, are Alfred Douglass, Esip, of New York, boarer of despatches, and the lit Rev. Bishop t'owell, of Toronto, Canada.

" A sample of meal has been exhibited to us this moraine as coming from the New Brunswick Landing Mills, which was evidently made by grinding the corn and cob together. The sample is said to havo been taken from the lot ground at the above named mills, and shipped to the order o( Messrs. Woodhull Si Minturn, in New York, for the European market. Rumors have been abroad concerning a fraud of this sort for some weeks, and the exhibition ot the sample beforo us, together with other testimony which we have received, make it an imperative public duty to call public attention to the subject. This is due to the parties implicated, as well as to our State end the country at large, which would be disgraced by such a base attempt to defraud and impose upon the people of another country. We trust the manufacturers, and the euterprising house in New York, will be able to ratisfy the public mind on the subject, and put an end to the current statements to which we have referred. The process of making this spurious meal is said te be this. After the corn and cob are ground together, the product is kiln-dried and then ground again, in order to make it resemble pure meal as nearly as possible. The sample may be seen at this office." We can inform our contemporary that what he has discovered, and to what he calls public attention, is what is technically called a mart's nest; cr, in other words, that he has lost his time and labor in discovering what Paddy hunted for and found?"just nothing at all." Messrs. Woodhull fc Minturn have been, for two months back, manufacturing this corn and cob meal, and shipping great quantities of it to England ami other countries ; but as to any fraud being i practised, there is nothing of the kind. This corn and cob meal is used very extensively in the United States as cattle feed, and 1 is found much superior, and more whole, some, than meal from the pure corn. It is less heating, and more easily digested. We are informed, too, that for man it is likowise capital lood, and even makes a tolerably good loaf; and wc doubt not that the starving poor of Ireland would like very much to be " defrauded" with as much of it as would support them till the famine season is over. Great Robbery in Boston ?The Boston Transcript, of Monday, contains the following account ot an extraordinary and extensive robbery in that city:? Rome time between Saturday night and Monday morning, a gang of daring villains (broke and entered the btoi o on the corner of Washington and Milk streets, occupied by Messrs. Currier k Trott, jewellers, and by Mr. Widdefield, optician, and swept it of everything of value ! The iron sale with three doors was broken open and rifled of Its valuable contents. In fact there is nothing left in ths store worth carrying away '. The value oi me goons sioien cannot oe accurately esumaieu at present, but can hardly be leaa than flfteen thousand dollars 80 cool were the robbers, that they look a luncheon with them, and ate in the store. They appear to have gone as deliberately to work as though they were taking an account of stock. It is the heaviest rotd>ery that has been committed in Boston, since that of Davis, Palmer &. Co 'a jewelry establishment several years ago We learn In addition to the above, that among other property stolen were $660 in cash. The rogues were very nice in making their selections from the stock, as nothing but the most valuable goods were taken. The thieves must have entered through the cellar window on Saturday evening before tbo store was closed, and secreted themselves in some part of the cellar. This is, without exception, the most cool and daring robbery we ever remember to have recorded. Police Intelligence. Prompt Arret! anil Recovery of Property.?OIHceri 1 Rue, McGroney, and Scally, of the 6th ward, arrested early yesterday morning two women called Catharine I Reed and Mary Kenney, on a charge of robbing a mat by the name of Wm Dunn, of $200 in Ave dollar gold pieces, together with a silver lever watch worth $30 I while in a dancing "crib" kept by Harry Norton, it j Anthony streot, near Centre street. It apneari that Dunn arrived in tho city yesterday from Tren ton, New Jersey, where he resides, for tha pur pose of depositing the above $9C0 in the Chamber 1 streot Havings Dank ; but arriving too late, the banli having closed for the day, he thought he would tak< 0 stroll to see the sights on tho Kive Points, and ii doing so, he soon found himself amongst a nice party and being considerably in liqner at the time, created thi sympathy of the above two ladies, who, after a verj short time, managed to relievo him of the money nnc 1 watch, and when nicely fleeced, turned kirn out into the , street, where he was found by one of the policeman rolling about in the gutter, and a lot of thieving cbans besting him over the head with hladdors. On the jpolicemai taking him before the magistrate, ha informed tho jus , tice of his loss, when tho shove active officers wen placed on the business, and in the course of an hour, the] succeeded in capturing the above women, and recover ing the whole of the money and the watch likewise which was certainly a very remarkable circumstance considering the neighborhood Justice Osborne com milted them both to tne Tombs for trial. It Arret! of an old " Bhop]Lifter.n? Officer, o the 3d wsrd, caught an old shop lifter yesterday, by th< name of Michael Walsh, in the act of stealing a pair o bcots, valued at $3 AO, belonging to James O'.Vleara, No lOti'j Greenwich street. Locked up by Justice Osboint for trial. Fahe Pre fence 1?Officer Sweny ef the Sixteentt Ward, arrested, yesterday, a man by the name of Lyaini Hturge.on n charge of obtaining money ou false pre tences Held for examination. A Ticklitk Te irk ? Officer Hlokely, of the 2nd Diilric j Tolice Office, Jefferson Market, arrested yesterday, twi 1 young women, by the names of Precilla P. Pell, and Ma ry Sherwood, on n warrant issued by Justice Merritt j wherein they both stand charged with placing a lot ol 1 cowitch iutoihe bed of Marv Ann Combs and Lucia M Fox. Tbay having] quarreled togethi r, the [accused porties took this method el obtaining satisfaction, whicl so tickled the complainants, that they could not possibl] rest until tliey made the above complaint. It appear that all the parlies reside at No. A20 Greenwich street The magistrate held them both to bail to answer at cour for this funny act of tickling mischief. Stealing Rvtter?Two black fellows, called Johi Smith an-t Pnillip A. Laveni, were arrested by ofiL'eri Hnlse and Curry, of the Third Ward, for stealing a tul I of butter, valued at $9, from the store of Barnes 8 ! Mackie, No 194 Greenwich street. The rascals were found on the Kive Points, sad after severe flgift, striking one of the oihcers e violent blow in the face, they final ly succeeded in capturing the ruffians and conduotin| | -jsT J'istice Osborne, who locked them up fo . | Nmlcal. i. Italian OrsaA?This evening a mw opera and e compoier, by meam of it, ere to be introduced to eur citis tec*. The opera is " Nine, Pazze per Antour the com. ' poser Ccppola ; name which ia little known in thia country, though it will be introduced under u favorable 1 auspice* as could be desired. Tbe plot and style of the y opera is one which will, we think, render it a favorite. 1 ! Its groundwork is slight, but pleasing and fanciful; how Y ever, wt> can say more of it, when heard in its full parts. > Beneventano will be the Couat Rodolph, Signnra Pico the Nina, and Bcnedetti the Henry, (a lover el Nina's,) of Y the Disc*. ttanquirice has a good part, and will sing in 1 the second act an aria composed by the Maestro of the 8 i company. Signor Barili; this aria we have heard spoken 1 of as a true gem. We expect Pico's friends will turn out in lull strength, and present such another crowd of brilliant beauty as was gatherod on Monday evening last. 3 Ma. Hxriar C. Timm's grand concert will take place < at the Apollo Saloon on Saturday evening next He will 9 be assisted by Mrs 1:1. Loder, Mrs. H. Timm. Messrs. P. Mayer, W'eizel. and Halle; likewise Messrs. Kyle, Stark, \ Boucher, and Woebning, who will perform several iu j strumental solos Mr. t>. Loder will conduct the con| cert, and. no doubt, from his splendid orchestra, toge . ther with the galaxy of talent above named, the Apollo ; Saloon will be crowded by the fashionable and musical j people of this city. Alhamhsa ? Chrysty'a excellent band of Ethiopian < Minstrels commence a series ol concerts at the above | saloon, on Thursday evening next. If we judge from the success he met with during his last visit to this city, 1 at Palmo's, as also from that of "his tour through the Seuth. no doubt his concerts now will be attended wtth I like success, and the Alhumhra will he crowded with the admirers of musical and vocal harmony. t Theatricals. Park Thkatse.?The Italian ballet made their second appearance to a New York audience last evening, and ' drew forth the most unlimited approbation and applause. They consist of three artists, Signor Morra, Signora Ciecca and Slgnorina Mactin. The first is an extraordinary dancer, and peiforms feats in the pirouette which I ere truly astonishing. lie rests on the toes of one foot and spins on them like a tep, while bis magnificent leaps . I or bounds on the stage exceed any thing of the kind wo ; have seen in many years. The spectator becomes dizzy 1 in beholding h m. Signora Ciocca is beyond question the most beautiful and gracsful danseuee we have seen on the stage since the days of Kanny Ellsler; aha is beyond praise, and must be seen to be realized. Signoriaa Mantin is likewise a beau ' tiful artietr, and alono would rank among the first I in her profession; but in company with Ciocca, it is at | once perceived that she is not equal to her. The threo 1 form a powerful and irresistible attraction, and we much 1 mistake if they do not meet with triumphant suocess, when the publio are acquainted with their excellence, and superior artistical merit. We nerer saw a better | satisfied audience than that which attended last evening. I The ballot " Diana and K.ndymion" will lie repeated tonight with the comedy of " Look Before You Leap," I anil the comedy of "The Kton Boy;" the whole to eonI elude with (for the first time) a new ballet dance, styled ; " La Polka." Bowery Tiieatbe.?The grand opera of "Cinderella" was repeated here last evening, and its production was attended with signal succass. Miss Mary Taylor, as Cinderel's,delighted the entire house by her admirable performance of this popular character. Her singing was well supported by a full and efficient chorus. Mr. Hunt's rrujcn, auu 'uuo i/rau vjuuan wire uiso well attained. Vache, Chapman, Stevens, Hadaway, Mr?. Booth and Mr*. Serjeant, together with the remaining member* of the talented itock compaay, performed with excellent effect; and the whole waa got out in a manner highly creditable to the management of Mr. Jackeon.? The new and auperb acenery, by Mr. O. Heiater, act off" the performance a good deal, and this beautiful opera has aeldom been presented with auch rich attractions in New York. The comedy of "Like Master like Man," waa performed previous to the play. To night Mits Mary Taylor's benefit take* place. When we'consider the I high popularity, the extreme ability and talent* of "our own Mary," we need only announco the fact that tonight is fixed for her benefit?to insure her a cordial greeting from her numerous triend*. The Bowery tonight will be a real bumper house. City Intelligence. Frio at* Rar itan's Tabs ?About thirty of theae brave sailors, who have been engaged during the war in the Oalf, gave a splendid toirct a la Ntptunt at No. 351 Water street, on Monday night. There wore about eighty or ninety ladies and gentlemen preeent, and they danced several splendid Mexican dances, equal to those to be seen st the magnificent fandangoi in the Halls of the Montezuma*. Those brave tars can beat the Mexican! not only in a fight but in a superb fandango, and it is known that the Mexican* are as great at a fandango as the Raritan crew are at a fight. Thb Weather.?Yesterday was gloomy, end calculated to give the " chills" to every New Yorker. 1 he atmoaphere waa cold and damp during the day, and we had not a single gleam of sunshine. Relief fob Ireland.?Is it not time for New York to take this matter seriously in hand, and send a remittance in money or provisions, that will alleviate the misery of three or four milliona of our starving fellow men 7 Shall we keep back until that country is depopulated by famine and pestilence, while we nave it in our power to put forth our hand and save them? As a Christian people. we have a serious responsibility resting on us. Fire Alarm.?The alarm of fire last evening proceeded from the eecond section, aecond district; straw being lighted in one of the street*.

The Coroner bed not yet gone to perform his official duty, when another messenger arrived and stated James Daley, the husband of the deceased woman, was also dead.

The market di.l not open so bright to-day, aad prices fell off a fraction. Canton Company declined Ji percent., Long Island l)s, Harlem \ Reading Norwich and Worcester X?, Ohio G's U Erie Railroad, old stock, improved >$. North American Trust, Reading Bond', and Farmers'Loan, closed at yesterday's prices. At the second board, thora was no material alteration, and the market closed firm. Stoniogton Railroad.Company is now well managed, and is doing a good business, the receipts being much larger now than they ever were before; and the fact of i'a paying a good dividend this yeurto the stockholders is now placed beyond all doubt. It is thought by some of the wise men of Well street that the present business and prospects of this company render the stock a mote judicious investment than tho stock of the Norwich uu J Worcester. The receipts of the Vinksburg Railroad, it is said, have greatly increased during the last year, eonparci with the yenr before. We are told that the proposition made tome time [ago, that the respective stockholders ehould surrender to tho Oirard Bank, the Bank of the United States, end the other creditore, one half of their tock, end that these banks and other creditors should discharge their claims against the railroad company, haa been agreed to by these banks and all the principal creditors. This must increase the value of the- stock very much. The late advance in tho Long Island Railroad stock, it is said, has been brought about by the present manogtrs of the company,in order to induce stockholders who are opposed to them to sell their stock, and thereby render the stock now sold incapable of being voted on by any person, at the coming clectiun.
