THE whsslt BB&ALO.
The JVeekly Herald will be ready at nine
o'clock this morning, and will be as replete with
interesting mutter as any sheet we ever issued.
It will contain a full synopsis of the English
news received by the Britannia ; the reports of
the foreign markets ; an interesting letter from
Mr. Bennett, on the financial crisis in England.
It will also contain the Latest news from the
ueat of war, which we may receive by < xpress
or othe-wise, and the latest general, political and
run-ellaneous news from all parts of the United
To >fford the public facilities for correctly und-manding
the detiils of the splendid battles of
C <ntr?-rai? and Churubusco, we shall publish in
th? tVtekly Herald a plan of the battle-fields,
taken from a sketch of the ground made by
Lt-ut B-*aurezard, of the corps of engineers,
for the New Orleans Picayune, and will republish
the engraving of the " Approaches to the
city of Mexico."
This will be an excellent paper to keep for
future reference.

Tile Difficulty between Qcntnl Kearny and
Colonel Kreinont.
It is much to be regretted that difficulties, in
regard to r?mk and obedience to orders, arise
occasionally between the officers of our army.
They detract from the character and efficiency
of the service, and, in one instance at least, a
misunderstanding in regard to rank was near
blasting forever the name of as gallant an officer
as ever lived, and one who, by deeds of valor,
his proven himself worthy of the proud position
he holds, and the favorable notice that the government
took of his bravery and disregard of
danger in conflict with the enemy.
Tne officer we refer to is Colonel Worth?
now Brevet Major General Wonh ? whose
services in the field are so well known to
the public and so highly appreciated by the
army and the country. A slight misunderstanding
about rank induced that officer to resign
his commission and leave the scene of
w*rj but, fortunately for himself and the
country, he altered his mind and again assumed
his station. Like a gallant officer as he is, ha
forgot ho private grievances when he saw his
services were needed; and it is due to him to
?v that thf nrrifirf> nt his nrmnnul leelinfrs on
the occasion was highly honorable to him.
The next most important difficulty that arose
between officers in regird to rank or obedience
to orders, was that which occurred between
General Kearny and Lieutenant Col. Frrinont,
both as fine fellows and as brave men aa ever
faccd aa enemy. The former wan appointed
Governor of California by Commodore Stockton,
of the navv, and entered upon the duties of hia
new office immediately after his appointment.
When General Kearny arrived there, and, by
virtue ot authority from the government of
the United Stat??, instituted himself govrrnor o!
that part of Mexico, and assumrd authority
over Com. Stockton and Col. Fremont, which
Com. S and Col F. would not and did not acknowledge,
a serious collision at once pccurred
between these otticers, the result of which was
that Col.' Fremont wm placed under arrest by
Gen. Kea;ny, and sent to the Umtwd 3tat*s,
where both he and Gen. Kearny arrived a short
time since.
The matter will now be investigated by a
court martial, or court of enquiry, the judgment
of which will be looked for with much
interest by the people at Urge. Our only motive
in referring to this matter, is to point out
the loaa to the country from this difficulty, and
not to express any opinion on the merits of the
issue between these two officers. Of that we
know nothing, and will be satisfied with the
decision of the court of enquiry. It is clear,
however, that the country is temporarily deprived
of the services of both in consequence of it.
This is to be regretted, for both arc valuable
We perceive that Colonel Fremont has published
a long letter in the Washington Union,
addressed to ihe Adjutant-General ot the United
States, dem tnding a copy of the chargcs tiled
against him by General Kearny, and requesting
an early trial; " desiring that the public mind
m>y have something to rest upon in answer to
the accusation made against him, until the trial
shall enable them to make their own decision."
A* we before remarked, we have not formed
ay opimoB of the merits of the difficulty bs.
twcca L ol.. Frsmont and Gen. Kearny; but we
must sty that we think the publication of that card
at his request, will; do more injury to Col. Fremont
than it will do good. It will be looked upon
by the public, as an effort to prejudge the case
fur which he has demanded atrial. This is the
view we take of it, and knowing Col. Fremont
to be as valuable un officer as any in the service,
and entertaining lor him profound respect and adi
miration for his valuable services and researches .
while engaged in the exploring expedition, and
his important services iu California, as well as |
for his previous soldierly demeanor, we sincere [
ly regret the publication of the card referred to.
It is to be hoped that civilians having nothing
to do with this difficulty, will not be allowed to
.intrude themselves before the public on the trial,
| or be allowed to take any part whatever iu the
i proceedings thereupon.
Tm: lT. S. Stsamkr Lroark.?We mentioned,
yesterd.iy, that this beautiful craft was cruisint!
I about our bay on Thursday, for the purpose of
testing an apparatus constructed by Capt. Ericsson,
to furuish a constant supply of fresh water
for i?er boilers. We omitted to state that this
important experiment has been prosecuted under
the especial direction of Mr. Secretary Walker,
and that the honor, in the event of success, will
belong to hiin of having solved, what all mu.-t
admit to be the most important unsolved problem
in ocean steam navigation. Among the gentlemen
associated with Charles H. Haswell,Esq.,
engineer in chief of the U. S. Navy, in conducting
the experiment, wtre Thomas B Stillman,
John II. Towne, Cxeorge L. Schuyler, r.otessoi
\Iapes, James McFirluud, Lewis Taws, Captain
Fr?2?-r, ot ihr r? venue inuiinf, William Sewel],
Jr , and W. W. Wood, of the U. S. N., and Win
A. Liglithall. Several gentlemen interested in
steam navigation were prese.it us invited aue.-ts,
among whom were S >muel M Fox, E. K. Collins,
Will am Kemhle, and J D. Van Bureu, Lbquirvs.
The report ot this commission, Horn
tue great interests involved, is looked for with
great anxiety
The Ocean Sieameks.?There appears to be
a heavy business doing at present in the way of
repairing ve.-t-els; every dock in the city is occupied,
and apparent!) engaged for days and weeks
to come. T:ie emergency has spurred theownerb
nf the doiks to nome purpose; altterations and
improvements h >ve been made, and the powers
and capabilities ot each fully tested. A goc d
deal of competition exists between them, and
each owner ia doing -ill that c?n be done to add
to the efficiency ot his dock. We noticed in the
vicinity ot t.iese ' chip hospitals," disabled vessels
from ull parts ol the world waiting their
turn. The new balance or box dock has been
> 0 much improved within a few days, that the
new steamship Northerner, measuring 210 feet
keel, rests upon it as safe and as free from harm
as if she had been moored at the wharf. The
Britannia is on the sectional dock, immediately
alongside tue JNoiinerner. Inese steamers both
look well hih] are pretty much of a size. Their
models, peculiarities, &c., are in full view,
which, to the lovers and patrons of naval architecture,
are worth a visit.

second and thesamj number in the third story, each
surmounted by a cornice corresponding in style with the

stained glasa, and,when all Is completed,will undoubtedly

Superior OornT. *ept 34- Before tha Chief Justice?
C D Hr Lillirtid ihl vs B rrrote and Prior?This was
an action of a**umsit. growing out of the following clr
cumstanc**: the defendant* who are commission merchants
in this oity. received from Htonington. Conn., a
lot of whalebone to be sold on commission The plaintiff
called at the defendants Btore and purchased it at
.14I{ oents per pound, tor shipment to Bremen. The
urtlole was represented by the defendants to contain 193
bundles and to weigh 21.056 lbs. It was next given
to a weigh master to be weighed, and carted to tha ship
in which it wan to be sent to Bremen. In order to put
the proper marks and numbers on it. so that it might be
easily identified at its port of destination, the plaintiff
sent his (l. rk to mark and see It weighed After tli?
weighing w?t> finished, it turned out there were but 1K7
liunjles. and was short in weight 1267 lbs. On delivery to
the mate of the ship, which was to transport it to Bremen,
it was also counted by him, and found to contain only
187 bundles. These tacts were reported to the plaintiff,
who afterwards met or called upon one of the defendants,
and told him there was an error both in the
number of bundles and in the weight, and he wished to
have the matter inquired into before the vessel left port.
The latter replied, that even though there might be an
error in the number ef bundles, tha weight was all right,
or at all events it should be made right. Upon this understanding
tho plaintiff paid the prioe of the whalebone,
and tha vessel proceeded on her voyage. Upon her arrival
at the port of Bremen, it was again counted and weighed,
and found to contain but 187 bundles, and to be
pbort in weight 12oti lbs; the defendants were then apI
nlUil tn trt ?uf,ind tha rliffuran/iu* Hilt, thnw vnfnaml and
' the notion ia now brought to recover tbo value of 1260
I lbs, at 34X cents per lb. When tte plaintiff closed hi*
eviJence, the defendants' counsel moved for a nonsuit,
on the ground that the plaintiff had made a voluntary
! payment, with full notice of the error; that tbo defendants
have paid over the proceeds to their principal, and
ought not now to be called on to refund out of their own
money. The motion for a nonsuit was denied, and defendants
ordered to go into their defence. The defence
was mostly technical.except that evidenoe was given that
from the fact that whalebone is mostly stowed with the oil
! and that for the preservation of the oil in southern latlj
tudes, it is necessary to keep the casks continually wotI
ted, in oonsequence of which the hone imbibes a large
quantity of the water; that plaintiff examined the artlI
cle at the defendants' store before he made the purchase.
I and that he w+a cognisant of all the facts, and bought it
| a little below the market price; that it was weighed by a
man of great experience, and that plaintiff's clerk was
| present and saw every pound of it weighed. The weigh'
master was produced, and swore that the weight was
correct, but would not answer for the number of bun|
dies. Other witnesses were produced, to show that the
I weight might have decreased ou the voyage by evapora!
tion. The Judge reserved the question ot law, and told
the jury if they believed that the weight was inoorreot,
they should find for the plaintiff, making a deduction for
the evaporation. Verdict for plaintiff, iji'JtiS 33. For
' plaintiff, Messrs. Cutting & Millard; for defendant,
| Messrs J. P Hall ti Livingston.

reproached with being unable to take possession ot the

most abhorrent linages of slavery.
Then follows what would make two or three oolumns
of our paper, pointing out the evils under whioh the
couutry has for years been laboring, and suggesting
remedies. Many of these remedies appear apt and
righteous, but the tenor of all this part of the address
appears to us to have been intended to forestall Paredes
should the latter seek to take advantage of Santa Anna's
possible defeat and reinstate himself in power. We are
looking fur more stirring news from Mexico than the

spare a place for a portion of this document At another
