She if, of coizrse, over due. It will be necessary to urge upon the French company the propriety of rigging their steamers with lighter spars; they are now too heavily rigged for speed. Tbe Mexican War?Future Prospects. The second conquest of Mexico is complete All that is necessary is to retain possession of that country; but the efforts to do so may be more difficult than were those of the'onginal conquest. The inarch of General Scott from Vera Cruz to I the city of Mexico is unparalleled, considering Ins means, in the history of twenty centuries. The only parallel that can be found ia that of 1 General Taylor from Palo Alto to Buena Vista. ,The American arms have been covered with new aud fresh glory, that will be better appreciated in Europe, than even in this country. After the first astounding intelligence, the public mind is beginning to realize the deeds of the victors. The press is speaking forth. All parties?all secte?all factions, are bursting with astonishment. The past is remembered?the present is known. ; What is, to be the future? This is a new and most imDortant uuestion for the government nnd people of thin republic to determine. We seem to be embarrassed with our victories. Shall we , retain all Mexico, and annex her to this country! Shall we keep it an a territory, or military province, lor future contingencies! or shall we abandon the conquest and the capital of Mexico, and retire to the line on which we proposed the re- I cent negotiations! These are the important questions of this moment?questions that will be decided iu the approaching election tor the Presidency; but some of which are so pressing as to require the immediate decision of the Government, or of Congress, the session ot which is now approaching. The general opinion, at indicated from all quarters, seems to be that we shall retain our present position in Mexico, at all hazards, and leave the other questionto be determined by the contingencies ot a future day. As far as known, the government has manifested a disposition to retain p?ssession ot Mexico, to organize u military government fur the time being, and m?ke that country pay the expenses of our occupation of it, in every possible way in which it can be accomplished. The proposition to annex Mexico to this republic is attributed to certain members of the cabinet; but it is generally believed that no mch project in entertained by the President and the whole of his cabinet, bo as to be shown in distinct action. The mission of Mr. Trist?a mission which seems to have been originated l-y the Pre- 1 sident alone, without the consent of his i cabinet?has failed, and no further offers will be made to Mexico. Our government will retain its present .position, and be ready to receive propositions from any legalised government that Mexico may create within a reasonable time. There is another purpose, however, eu?er'ain?*d in some quarters, that the m litary possession of Mexico will gradually lead the higtw clasnes of that country to look upon ann^x-itiou us not so great an impracticability, or .- uch a moiiHtroug evil, as they might at first sup* pose. For twenty-five years that country has b^en distracted by military despots; under the American rule they would enjoy peace and quiet, and repose. This, in a few years, may tend to eff'Ct other changes, and, lastly, to bring about annexation ; but as yet, that idea is a mere contingency, depending on future events The President will keep possession of the capital and other places which have been conquered ; Con gress will soon be together, and the whole question will be discussed by that body. In this state of indecision as regards the fu ture, it is possible that some ot the governments of Western Europe may manifest a disposition to act on the subject of Mexican affairs. Our brilliant campaigns in that couniry have annoyed the governments of Western Europe. The tone of their pres3 has been ba*e, insolent, mean and atrocious, in the highest degree, towards this country The press, both of England and France, has been instigated by the agents of those governments. and the opinion!! they express may be taken as the opinions of their respective cabinets concerning thie country. The growth and power and genius of the United Stares, have aiarmed them, and may end by English inteference with up on the Mexican question. If the British Government, under any pretext, be it Lord Palmerston or any one else, ventures upon taking any steps in relation to Mexican affairs, hostile to the United States, the effect on the American people w ill be such as to hasten annexation itself, and create a feeling in this country that will never give up the conquests at the bidding of any foreign power. Heretofore, the government and higher clashes in England, have given us ever credit for our commercial enterprise, for our skill in uteamboats and railroads, and every thing connected with trade and commerce; hut as an organized government, they looked upon us with contempt as a mere rabble, without power to carry on war?a? incapable of standing for an instant before a regular army recent campaigns in Mexico will remove those errors from their minds. A more energetic and better provided people, in war or commerce, never existed on the face of the earth. - i? i < linn IIIC Jjcuyic Ul Hie l mini OlRlTi. II l||(* Oregon question had been unsettled to thin day, we are psrsuaded the British government would give us any line of boundary, sooner than pro voke hostilities. We tell the governments, the press, and all the orguns of public sentiment ii Western Europe, that, from thif- day forward, the United States commences a new career; a career that will as lar surpass that of Rome in ancient times, us this country surpasses, in mag. t oitude, power, and internal wealth, the diminutive monarchies of the old world. T?* PaomsxAKT EpmcofAU (JKNBRAL CONvention.?-This body of clergy and laymen, adjourned on Thursday evening last, after a session of twenty days. The result of their deliberations on the condition of-tlie diocese of New York, was the apparent passage of three new canons, the first of which authorizes the Court ol Bishops to remit or terminate judicial sentences on certain term*; the second directing that in cases of sen tepees ot suspension hereafter, a duration qeWMBWeSB-.

' IV iin l)t*liu|J, U>| wlieiwihe bishop labors u?ders disability to perform ltis function?, to rail on any bishop, assistant bishop, or missionary bishop, 'o fill th<? vacancy, and perform th?* episcopal f"nc tions. The first of thes** canons empowers the bishops to remit or terminate the sentence on BishopOnderdonk, and in case ol their not doing so, or in case they should deposehim.ihestandmg committee will have the power to call in another bi hop to fill his place The canon* also provide the manner in which the court of bishops shall be called together,and the manner in whicti they shall remit or terminate sentences. This is the apparent result of the twenty days' labor. Ocean Stiamers.?It appears by a notice published for the first time yesterday, that an enterprise is on foot for the purpose of constructing a line of steamers to run in opposition to the sir>iith.>rn??r nnil Northerner, from this port to Charleston. We learn that no contract has yet been made, mid no keel yet been laid in this city for such a line. The undertaking certainly deserves some enrourageinent, and if properly conducted would prove a lucrative investment. The great increase of trade and travel between the two cities, requires at l?ast two additional steamers, with capacities similar to the Northerner, which would then make a splendid line, plying semi-weekly. There ara now in course of construction in thia city, thre? fine sea steamers, in addition to the Hermann and United States, now receiving their machinery. Two of these are in W. H. Brown's yard, the largest of which ia intended for Mr. Morgan's New Orleans line of 6team packets ! She measures about two hundred and forty feet, with a capacity of sixteen hundred tons. She is apparently a noble vessel, staunch and well moulded. TUe other in thia yard is someth ing on a small"r scale, but not inferior in symmetry or form of model. R. B. Forbes,Esq. of Boston, we understand is her owner. The keel, stein and stern posts ol the third have just been raised by Messrs. Smith k JJimon, for George Law, Es?j , under the government contract, given sometime since to Mr. Sloo, but recently purchased from that gentleman by Mr. Law. She is designed by government to carry the mail to Havana, ^Chagres, &c., having the starting noint either at Charleston or this port. Her dimensions are greater than any other steamer ever built, not excepting the United States; She will be 2001) tons measurement, 250 feet in length, and a beam not less than 49 feet. Her builders have asked and obtained a year from last month to complete the hull. This great length of time they consider necessary, that they may produce a vessel in all respects perfect. The keel of the steamer Franklin, the third in the Bremen and Southampton line, is not yet laid, as was stated in one or two papers. The report originated, no doubt, from the fact that Messrs. Westervelt k McKay laid the keel, a day or two since, of a new ship, for Messrs. l?oyd & Ilincken's Havre line. Negotiations, j however, are going forward for the building ol i the Franklin, by Messrs. Westervelt & McKay : but, up to yesterday afternoon, nothing definite had transpired. Theatrical and Mimical. I'aki Theatre?Mr. Forrest appeared at the Park last evening, in the character of 8 part I c us There was 8 good bouse,and the play wan well received. To-night Madame Bishop'* company appear iu the opera of " Lucrezla Borgia." We are Hatistled that it will be a grand j performance. Musicians who attended the rehears* apeak in the highest term* of the prima donna'* execution of the grand music whiob falls to the part of Lucrezia. Slgnor Valtelliui, a? the Duke, caunot fall to please. It will be aeen bj tlie bUJs that Alme. Macfarren, the new oontralto of the troupe, will make her first appearance in this pieee. Mr. Reeves appears in tbe part of Uenoaro. After the opera the petit comedy of the" Lost Letter." will btt performed, with an excellent cast. Madame Bishop remains with ui but one week longer, and those who value the privilege of hearing her sing will have to make the most of this opportunity. Bowert Thcatre.?Mr. C.Burke will takeabenetit | at the Bowery theatre this evening, and we think that < that gentleman may rely upon receiving as flattering & { testimonial in the shape of a bumper, as any aotor ha3 ! received here in a long time. HU olalms on the public I and particularly on the patrons of the Bowery, will not ' we think, be disputed. He will .appear on this occasion ! In four favorite pieces, viz: a new drama entitled'*Mur ' rell, the Land Pirate, or the V'ankee in Mississippi,' "Crimson Crimes, ' the Yankee comedy "Ole Bull,'' anc the "Oolden Kurroer " We need not reo pitulatu .Mr Burke's claims on the play-going community?they an too well known, and we hope will meet a response thi ening. Chatham Theatrc.?Miss Vallee's benefit, we ptr ceive, will take place at the Chatham Theatre, this eve ning, and we perceive, also, that the much sdmired bal let, tbe " Giselle," and two excellent dramas will be per formed on the occasion, which of course will fill thi house. As the Oiselle, Miss Vallee, we should think would appear to more advantage than she does in an] piece we can recollect This is the first time that shi personates this difficult character and we believe then Is much curiosity to see her in it. The drama of thi : " Idiot Witness," and that of the tl Female Horsi Thief," form part of the evening's amusements. Wt are satisfied that Miss Vallee's benefit will be a geoc | one. Ci*cv??Bowery Amphitheatre ?To-night,as usual | there is an admirable bill at tbe Circus, and we can re i commend a visit as a capital method of concluding tbr | week Dan Rice, the great Shaksperian clown?equns trianism?vaulting ? gymnastics?Ethiopian singing am: ; our inimitable frioads Don Quixotta and Saneho.are cer i talnly enough for one night There will also l>e an extr> 1 performance given this afternoon for tbe express acccm modatlon of the juveniles Ethiopian Serenadsbj.?There is tbe same crow<; , here every evening, and if, as the doctors say, gooii 1 health is secured by placidity of feelings and hearty laughter, there is no doubt that a larire portion of th'i community have got fust bold of it. The tact is, a visit to tbe Ethiopians is a certain cure for tbe blues, which ii not the less efficacious, though it'is wrought by black? To-night they have a splendid bill. Christy's Minjtrklh.?To-day concludes the fuurtfc week of these untiring genius,s performances here thli season, and still the public, to use a hackneyed simile like Oliver Twist, cry for more. In consequence of the silicitations of numerous families, they have concluded to give an afternoon entertainment to-day. at:) o'clock in addition to their regular evening performance. Thirls an excellent plan.a" many juveniles and family partler do not like to face the evening ?ir; now, however, tbej ; have an opportunity to enjoy themselves before dark i and we have no doubt both they and those who go t< j the evening performance will fully enjoy themseWes.

I The AimiCA* Vnw5fMr*n Prh???Tn refe rence to the new invention of a press adapted to t the printing of newspapers, constructed on a revolving principle, and invented by Mr. Hoe, of this city, we publish the following articles from a Philadelphia paper now printed on a pryss constructed on the same principle, and also from the Pirayun, 01 New Orleans The machinery which Messrs. Hoe & Co., have arranged to con struct for{11.0, is of larger dimensions and of ! greater power, but on the ?aine principle as those described in the annexed articles. This new pre.-<s has (beep tried for some time, and tested; and of its capability to perform nil promised of it, there can be 110 doubt. [Krom the I'hiladelpbiaLedger.J We have now got fairly at work, running off the im mense nightly editien of the Ltdg^r upon the newly lcj vented cylindrical rotary printing machine. which a few ; day* nine* we announced to our >H?4er* m having bwn I manufactured for the Lnlgrr by the Mewn, K Hoe ^ | (Jo., patentees and printing press manufacturers, of New York We doubt not that subscribers to the paper will be interested with a brief description of the mn1 chine and of its invention, particularly as the prinolple of its operation Is so entirely different from that of any printiog preHM ever before put ltto successful use in thn country or in the world; that it has been with printers , a disputed point, not only whether any machine could be invented by the moat Ingenious mechanic, capable ot applying tbis principle to printing, but, even if ther.' could be, whether the principle itself coull be adapted to letterpress printing. We think this last general in vention, < f which the first and only machine illustrating it yet manufactured, is that upon which the L'dgtr is now printed, proves the truth of the hypothesis, that the pricciple is susceptible cf being applied, acd with success The one we have has been in course of construction for us months past, and is the first and only one yet built, oommenced or ordered, ezeept by ourselves The . manufacturer* already hare our order for a second one I of the name kind. The essential principle of difference between thia last | Invention and all other kind* of presses or machines hitherto used, consists in the fact that while upon those ! the types are looked up with '' quoins'' and a -'mallet I and shooting stick," in a "chase," and laid upon a"bed" of iron, the surfaoe of which is flat, with this one the ! types are screwed up with a wrench, in what our com\ positors are pleased to denominate a '-turtle." constltut! lag both bed and chase, and placed upon p large cylinder, four and a half feet in diameter, more or less, which revolTes upon its own axle within lour other smaller I cylinders, one fourth part the sue of the larger one. ; these revolving also upon their own axles in an opposite direction. J-.ach one of these smaller cylinders reoeives from tlx supplying attendant tbe sheet of paper with whioh. at every fourth revolution, it meets the form or '' turtle" of type as it comes around, and in passing,gives the impresi sion, and instantly throws it out into tbe receiver's hands, above or below, according to the relative position of the cylinder. Surrounding tbe large iuner oylinder, to which tbe form of type is attached, and between those giving the impression, are placed tbe inking rollers, whioh Bpread the ink upon the face of the typns as it revolves under thun. There are two of these to eaoh oylinder. The Inking fountain is placed entirely underneath the jna j eblne. from which the ink is constantly drawn by meant* ! of a continually revolving sirall iron cylinder, forming i Itself a part of the fountain. From this the Ink is taken i up by means of small rollers, with a small vibrating disi tributor working in connection with them, aui is con1 veyed to the surfaoe of the large cylinder, the entire I .!..? nf ?hl,.h ovnunf Ihil u-nfinr. ,.f It . pied by the form ol type, performs in itH revolution the \ office of both distributor and feeder to the eight inking I rollers, from whloh latter the type receive their supply | direct With two of tho cylinders the white paper is fed in ] above. and the printed sheets are thrown out below,and I with the other two it is led in below and thrown out above. The room taken up by 'he machine, paperboards and all included, is about sixteen feet in length, and nine feet high, by about five feet in breadth. Th<< type used upon it are the ordinary typo hitherto used on the Ledger, which are made to ahsuine a circular form in the" make up," by the use of bevelled column rules. For the attendance of this press ten persons are required, viz : a superintendent and an assistant, and four to feed sheets in, and four to receive them as they connout. This in the same number only that have been required to attend the two presses heretofore used in printing ihe Ledger. We have now given, in brief, a description of this . most important invention, by whioh we doubt not, that primers, at least, if not mechanics generally, can derive a correct idea of its plan, without the aid ot a diagram. All meohanics know that strictly rotary motion is the motion capable of the highest rats of speed in machinery. lloe's last fast press is constructed throughout, entirely upon the rotary principle of motion. No still iudeed dors the machiue move,that it can hardly be heard 1 in an adjoining room. I One ot its greatest beauties, as well an advantages, in the estimation of all true mechanics, is its great simplicity, being far leas complicated than any previously used machine press. The extensive manufacturing house of tho How, to whom the printers of t?? United Stairs are indebted for mott of the printing presses and mirhluer; in use in this country, and particularly for the rapid machine presses, was ooinwuced by Robert Hoe iu 1808, who died in 1832. and lelt his sons, and Mathew Smith, who had been bred practically to the busintRJ, an bis successors. Messrs K. Hoe 6c (Jo hntd now iu New York two very extensive estuulltthmenis, one in Oold street, and the other iu Broome street, in the upper part ot the city, taking in the whole block boundeu by Sheriff, Broome and Columbia streets They have attached to their works an iron and brass foundry, foru* shop and trip hammers The whole machinery, foundry, be , are driven by single steam engine, of a oapaolty tu extend its power and work the entire length of the block, in which are employed between two and three hundred hand*. [From the New Orleans Picayune ] , We have recently had the opportunity ot personally inspecting one of Hoe's last invented printing machines, now employed by the Philadelphia Ledgrr. Description)! ' of the machine have already appeared in these columns, I but they necessarily give but an inadequate idea of the struoture; the results, however, are simple, and suiilelently astounding From ten to twelve thousand copies f of a newspaper can be printed upon it in one hour, and a the principle is aapable of iudetiuite extension, by the multiplication of the numbei' of distributing cylinders The Lrtlgrr's machine, for example, is built with lourot those smail cjllnders,which are brought iu contact with the main njllnder.upon which the form is plaoed Ksoh of these small cylinders throws off nearly three thousand impressions per hour, and, by increabiug their number, three thousand more impressions are secured for , every additional cylinder. The credit of this great invention is due to Richard ' VI. Hoe. of the house of Hoe & Co. I.ike most other val ' uable improvements in the arts, it has been the fruit of * long and baitting toil, sleepless study and innumerable * experiments, it is not., probsbly, an exaggeration to say that Mr. Hoe has expended fifty thousand dollars in bis | experiments ana id periecung ma maclilncs lie na? | richly earned the fortune which he ia at last beginning ' to Jeap trom hi* laborB The invention ia of such a cba racter that it must De adopted by the press as rapidly an , the manufacture can supply the demand; nor is it at nil improbable that it will be so modified and perfected as to be employed upon other descriptions of printing ' tban newspapers, for which, however, it was vxpressly designed. The cost of the mauhincs is large?ten thou 1 saud dollars each; but were it twice what it is. papers with large daily circulations would And their accouut in i employ lag the new invention. We understood from R Hoe It (Jo , while in the North, that they bad already received orders sufficient to keep them a long while engaged , ' A minor invention attached to the new press is also du.- to Mr. Hoe It is a registering clook, which nm ' <'nly markt the time like an ordinary clock, hut acts ax r a register of the operation! of the press. It tells you at * any moment the rate at which the press is then at work i J h<>* many copies per minute it is throwing off?and it 4 ; registers the amount of work done The ol?ck may be i nlu<>H(i in A room (iiaf lnnt frnm nrmaa rnnm?thu hiini 1 n?*s office, for example. W? need not enlarge upon the | convenience of nueh an apparatus about a printing ?s, taMisbruant. i We might detain the reader with remark* upon the ' advantages of tin principal intention, but they are sufll; oiently obvious. Tbe public have a direct interest in every facility which can be employed by tbe daily presn to multiply tbeir issues with rapidity. Whatever may . I serve to give permanent, solid value to newspapers, ana i make them a good investment for men of prudence, will i iu the end rewound to the advancement of their character. We hope to see the day when vue presn shall be re> I garded as an avenue to distinction, as eligible as tbe learned professions. It affords opportunity which other professions do not for the exercise of the highest talent and largest attainment* in a direction to sway the mind'' I of the people, to enlighten their ignorance, and uphold . and elevate public morals It will not reach its full ca ; pauity for doing good till it assures those who embrace it as a profession the fair fruits ol a life of honest industry.

I i We hare reseived accounts of a moat serious accident, i attended by the loss of quite a numb-r ot lives, wbioh occurred on Wednesday evening last, upon the Vermont . and Massachusetts railroad, iu the vicinity of iloyalston | The Motion Evening Traveller, of the 2dth, says : ?A 1 freight train, consisting ?f an engine and two earn, load ! ed with railroad iron, was crossing a new bridge, built j over Miller's river, when the bolts which fastened tbe bridge drew out. and the bottom of the bridge, togeth- \ I er with the engine and cars, was precipitated into ! the river The engineer, named Woodbury, formerly of j | Cbarlritown, and well known la this vicinity as engineer | of tbe train on the Kitcnburg railroad to Lexington war i instantly killed. His body was found in the mud, under the engine and n portion of the bridge The freight- ] master, named Wuitney, of Shirley, was ir supposed mortal!?. Two other perrons connected with ' the read were killed, and another so much Injured that he died this morning Nine other persons, who were | upon the train, also connected with the road, were very ' badly injured, and are not expected to recover Out of I the fourteen persons who were on the train, but one was able to give any account of the accident. There m some reason to suppose, trom the circumstancu that this wan the first trip accross the bridge, thai a number of boyn and young men bad jumped upon the train; but no bodies bave as yet been recovered. Jlddilional Particular!.?The correct details oi this accident have not as yet been received in this city, and the statement as to those who were killed Is liable to corrections. It Is feared, however, that the accounts yet to com*, will Increase, rather than diminish, the list of killed. Two gentlemen from Baldwtnsville, who got upon tbe train for the ride, are reported to have been killed. A merchant named Thompson, of Acton, who bad soma goods upon the train, Is reported to bave been killed. A man named Joshua Lincoln, of Cbarlustown was hurt so badly that hit Ufa is despaired of. The loccmotive and tender had got completely onr when tin | bridge gave way, but were arawu bacn by Uie loua be- I b^nd. \V? have recelved a letter from Mr. Charles ! ield, an engineer upon the road. H? stated that the accident oc curred on a bridge between South Knynlnon and At hoi ; i hat the bridge was built by MesNrs lloody & Hioue that it had been carefully examined previous to pausing orer it, and believed to be perfectly safe ; und that tb<> cause cf the accident w?s the imperfeution in the iroii ! used for the rods In the centre of the bridge. !
