Thi is a valuable contribution to the hi-tory
of the I'niled States: it is au account of th
Federal Administration of our country, w ritl. il
by one inheriting Federal feeliugs aud prejudi
ces, mid prej.ured from the papers of a IV.Ier. 1
Secretary of the Treasury. Nu out cau under
stand oar Past, or s;eoiilate intelligently npou
our Future, without knowing what was em
bodied in whit we call Federalism, and seeing
clearly how much of that spirit jet survives,
and where il is to be found. Federalism was
the spir.t of Centralization, of ctiicient (lovern
ment, of auti-auarchy. It was, and i, the con
servative power of oor (iovernmeut, without
which it woulJ never have originated, and could
not now exist. I'ntil Hamilton's schemes were
brought forward, Federalism and anti-Federal-isiu,
meant simply friendship for the Constitu
tion, and enmity to it. At this day, after so long
enjoyinp the bliwsings which date from the adop
tioii of ftiat Constitution, shall we turn round,
aud lire terms of opprobium toward the party .
and III' principles which fave lis that great In
strummt! It is worth noting how Kentucky
has groa n iu adherence to the true Federalist
faith: i l the Convention of Virginia, held in
out of fourteen rpreseutatives from the
district of Kentucky, eleven voted ogaintt the
existing ConsUlution of the United States;
against I'cijera'iisiii: and t-u years later, upon
the pas-iajje of the Alien and Sedition laws, Ken-
ucky, by the unbroken voice of her Senate, the
nearly unanimous vote of her Representativesj
and the approval of her tlovernor, gave herself
to the cause of nullification, of anti-Federalism.
Now all is chtniged. Whigs and Democrats
alike swear allegiance to our ltond of I'nion, aud
disclaim the modern nullification of Calhoun'
But Federalism means something beside alle
giance to the Constitution, it mean ait adhe
rence to those measure which from li'-' to
Illi), were ijeenied, by the party iu power, the
framer of the Constitution, necessary to the
continuance of that Instrument; adherence to
the I'uudiag system, the Bank, Tariff", and oth
er measures of taat day. This Federalism is
dead, for it was not the essential thing; it was
a mere accident, result, circumstance; the es-
nce was, throughout, adherence to hose meas
ures which would preserve the Central (Jovern-
meut against the jealousies of the State flov-
ernuients: the Constitution against nullification.
In this, the true meaning of Federalism, when
applied to the faith of Jay, Marshall, Hamiltou.
Wolcott, Pickering, and Cabot, who i now not
of that faith? A littlo band of slave-hol lers in
South Carolina. Now, these memoir of Wol
cott help ii to uu hrstand Federalism in it true,
broad sense, the sense which was in the mind of
Madison when he helped to write the papers of the
"Federalist ;"' and alto the small, accidental
Federalism which stood by Hamiltou, and elect
ed Adams, and gave a venom to the politics of
the time which is not yt pone from the national
llood; and therefore we ay these memoirs are
exceedingly valuable as maieriais lowira mr
history of the I'nitci States. The letters
of the Wolcott's. father, son, aud brother,
(the ou being lie subject of the memoir;)
-thone of the t.oodriches, of Trumbull,
Cabot, An-es, Tracy, McIIenry, and many oth
ers lotus iuto the household, to the fireside,
and dinner table of Federalism, aud we see its
honeaty, and its violence, it faith aud its unfair
ness, its devotion to the Constitution, and its ha
tred of Tom. Jefl"e.reon, its home quarrels be
tween Hamilton and Adam, its genuine Saxon
obstiuacy, conservation, and love of right
with sinffulardistiiic.tucsN. And with the rest,
j .shown tUe real want ol laiiu which i i4
ism had in the masse; till mingling of old
. r ... . . t. T." I I
English aristocratic feeling with the new-born
Democracy of the Revolution and there i
also shown the cause of this want of faith.
Had Jay and hi fellow lived now, they would
have beeu as much in the lead a they were in
their own day; their doubts and fear were not
of the eosence, but of the accident of federal
ism; truer aoul, purer heart, nobler mind
were never encased in clay. However widely
we may differ from them, however prejudiced
we may think them, however we may eniile at
the occasional extravagance of Mr. Gibb,, or
any other of their warm defender, let n aetrer
forget that none atood cloeer U the heart of
Washington than the great Federal loader.

It is certainly lamentable, that in consequence
of the iJUregard of the right of the Mexican
ilrpublic, the shedding of blood has become in
evitable between the first republic of tho Amer

treat propriety, qualities this war with a uuna
turd, as well on account of its origin as the
antecedents of two people identified by their
relations and their interests. The proposition

beoil received with pleasure by his Kxcellency

iVanirs of the Pretident ed interim if the A'e
public omd ffenerol-in-ehirf of the Army of the
u critical aud solemn occasions it is the duty
ou the part of him who presides over the Ke
public, to give publicity to events; and I dis
charge this duty with pleasure, hocaue frank
ness has at all times been the characteristic of
my administration. The occurrences of the
l'.'th and 20th are too well known, for they were
unfortunate, but it is proper for me to review
them, iu order that they may not tie misrepre
sented, as well from a spirit of detraction and
malevolence, as from errors resulting from a
want of analysis in subjects of grave aud tran
The nation has witnessed the great, tin extra
ordinary effort, with which, during the space of
three months, I have labored for the defence of
tae Capital which wa about to be surrendered,
defenceless, to the enemy. I have organized,
armed and equipped an army of more thin 20,
000 men; I have collected an immense mutrriril
for this army; I have fortified various lines in
order to keep at a distance fro n Mexico the rav
ages of war; I have created resources in the
midst of the state of abandonment in which the !
government was left; and no fatigue, no labor
have I omitted, in order that my country might
present herself with dignity and firmness in the
struggle to which she has been so unjustly pro
voked. In war, nn accident a circumstance appa
rently the most insignificant may frustrate the
most skillfully devised combinations. A glance
at the defences which I caused to be construct
ed around the city, is sufficient to discover the
plan which I had proposed to myself. 1 he
troops which I had advanced, by one of the
flanks, supported by other posted en echelon,
were to have made a concerted retrograde move
ment, which I commanded at the projicr mo
ment. A iteneral, who commanded a strong
division of 5,000 men and 24 pieces of artillery,
whoso headquarters were at t ie town of an
Angel, was ordered by me on the llh, at 11
o'clock in the morning, to fall hack on the vil
lage of Coyaocan in order to effect the concen
tration of forces, in consequence of a demon
stration already inado by the enemy, and for
the purpose of exactly carrying out my plan ol
operations. But this general, forgetting that
there cannot be two commanders in the held of
battle, and that the execution of a plan will not
admit of comments which anuttl or retard it,
suffered himself to object to the orders which
lie had received; and obedience and discipline,
so indispensable in military movements, having
lieen banished front among us, thus rendering it
necessary, in order to avoid greater and immi
nent evils, to tolerate what it would be absurd to
approve of, I suffered him in spite of invsclf to
persevere in his purpose, and charge himself
with the whole responsibility of the consequen
ces. 1 hey were no less disastrous lii'iu tnev nail
been obvious. He advanced mot proprn of
hi own accordj more than a league to cho-jso a
position from which to meet the enemy, with
out acmiaintiii'' me either of his movement or
his intentions. Hi refusal to obey the order
scut him, was the first notice 1 had of his temer
ity; and soon afterwatds the report of cannon
nabled me to ascertain the position be had ta
ken, and apprised me that uu action had com
menced. Although weighed down with the
presentiment of what was to follow, I immedi
ately placed myself at the head of a splendid
brigade of four thousand men and five pieces of
artillery. I arrived at the moment when the
ei.emy had cut off the rear of the position of the
ill-fated general by a considerable force whose
operations I was then hardly able to check, for
t was now nearly night.
But I observed, with the greatest grief, that the
position in question, was isolated that a large
ravine intervened, aud a neighboring wood was
occupied by the enemy; the troops under my im
mediate command could not advance by the on
ly road which existed, without being exposed to
th) same fate as the others; and a single batl ry,
which arrived late, wa my only means of at
talk. The firing having ceased, our brigade
took up their quarters in the towu of San An red ;
for the rain fell in torrent, aud to keep the
troops in the field would have been equivalent to
their being routed.
Previous to this, I ordered that my aid-decamp,
Col. Ramiro, should, taking as a guide, the
deputy, Don Jose Marts del Kio, who was ac
quainted with the ground, proceed to the head
of the terrible raviue iu front of us, and along
the skirt of a distant hill, and, makiug all haste
to the camp of the general referred to, order him
to retire that night, without fail, with his infan
try and cavalry, to San Angel, by the only road
that was left him, first spiking his cannon, if it
wan already impossible to save them. This my
aid accomplished, and communicated my order
between 10 and 11 at night; bat instead of punc
tually obeying the order, the general hardly suf-
fered my aid to apeak, interrupting bun by say
ing that what be wauled wa 0.000 men aad mil
nit ions, and sent biiu off, after giving biui two
official letter, which he had aigned and aealed;
one of theni containing a report of the action of
the eveniug, in which Le stated that he had beat
en the enemy and put him to a shameful flight,
and that he had, in consequence, granted promo
tions to the gnerals, field-officers, aad others.
The following day, at dawn, 1 repaired again
to the same field, reinforced by a brigade which
I had ordered lo be brought from Ihe capital,
and determined to effect the passage at any coat;
but soon a I began to more, the enemy made
his attack, which lasted about 10 minute., and I
witnessed, in the midst of despair, the rout ef
those troops, worthy of a better fate, aud unfor
tunately commanded by a general who was him
self the cause of their beiugcut off.
The consequence of thi affair were, in my
view, terrible. The enemy could, by a rapid
movement reach the Capital before it would be
possible for me to succor it; he could, by a flank
movement, rut off my detached force; he had
obtainod.as the result hi victory, the power of
falling with the main body of hi troops upon a
part of mine; the enemy, in fine, through the
unskilflul uess and insubordination of a general,
converted to bis own benefit all the advantage of
The advanced fort of San Antonio could not
sustain itself; for our line had been intersected,
and I ordered its garrison to retire, while I cov
ered the fort and iW de poni ef Churtibusco.
Tho euemy advanced, cutting off a potliou of
the Iroopsaa they were retiring, and presented
himself in front of our nearest defemes. I
there placed myself again in front of our sol
diers, aud my efforts cost the enemy not a little
bloodshed. The losses which eusued, though
lamentable, were the natural reeult of the re
treat, which wa sudden, unexpected, and em
barrassed by the trains, marching along a nar
row causeway flanked throughout it whole ex
ten. The defence wa from line to line, until
the third was reached, where I personally op
posed the enemy, and saved the Capital, a hich
was suddeuly placed iu danger. While I was
engaged, on the 22d, in re-organizing the forces
ami covering the batteries, aud again in person
at the head of a column, which have continued
the defence to the last extremity, I received a
communication from the enemy's general-inch
icf, proposing to me to conclude an armistice,
which would atl'ord time lo consider Ihe proposi
tion which may be made by the commissioner
of the I'nited Slates, for ending the struggle
between the two nation. 1 consented to the
armistice; and, after consulting the minister iu
cabinet, I have determined that the proposition
referred lo shall betaken into consideration
The suspension of hostilities is always a good
thing, because war is al way an evil; and much
more so, after great combinations have beeu
frustratod. To save the Capital from the hor
rors of war. oral least defer them, was a coasid
eration which I could not overlook, more par
ticularly hen viewed as a mean of arriving at
an honorable peace.
Wheu two uations find themselves in a state
of war, they have the reciprocal right to make
propositions, and this presupposes a duty to lis
ten to propositions. A perpetual war is an ab
surdity, because it is a calamity ; aud the instiuct
of Helf-preservatiou, which is even stronger and
more powerful iu uatiuus than iu individuals,
counsels that no mean shall he disregarded
which may lead to au advantageous adjustment.

Yet it is evident she stands above a volcano, and
upon the frailest tegument. Her measures
how this. The President of the police has just
issued a decree, stating, that no institutions for
gymnastic exercises will be interfered with,
which altstain from political discussions or com
binations: And in Callicia, wh.re certain To!e
were tried and hung, and where people went in
crowds every day to visit and deck with dowers
the burial spots of WnvniowsaiaiiJ Kxrt isinxi,
Government has forbid all such exhibitions, and
ordered a Connies to cease getting up a petition
in behalf of other condemned Poles! A King,
who is thus oppressive, cau not be very strong
with his people. Hi acts prove, that Gallacia
is ia a ferment. Not evea Austriau bayonets
cau prevent that! And the youth of Austria
those who are at college, auJ who exen i.se i i
the gyiuasiunis ore ripe for revolt, and resolv
ed, to have a freer government. The King is a
man of feudal day. He know nothing of the
pirit of th age. II siu eu bis throne, and
thinks every soul mut do him homage! Poor
fool! He will wake up one of these day and
learu that there is such a thing as the Sovreignty
of the People.
But notwithstanding the situation of France,
and the condition of Austria, it would seem, as
if this King were bent ou subj j gating the Pope.
Can he do it?
There is a rumor that the King of Sardinia
ha protested against the military occupation of
Ferrara and offered the Pope his whole military
power. This wants confirmation. But the
people of Turin received the report with enthu
siasm, and thi shows what they fear, and what
Uiey wish. No matter. EnglauJ is evidently
saying to the Pope, "Goou.doa you will, we
will stand by you." If so, the Austrian Ty
ranny in Italy is at au end! Another year will
see it wholly overthrown.
But more important yet, we may notice the
action of the Poje. First, he protests against
the Austrian outrage at Ferrara. Second, he
is putting himself in a position to defend his
territory! If Austria proceeds, we shall have
war, and that war, unlets we mistake the signs
of the times, will involve other powers. Hut
if the Pope remain firm as we believe he will
for he ia a superior man the probabilities
are, that Austria will back out!
There had been severe shocks of earth
quakes in Egypt! Some damage a as suffered
at Alexandria; more at Cairo.
The King of Naples has been driven into the
path of reform. Royalty will hav- In trend that
everywhere, or fall.

They are reaping th- leiicfits of their re-Art

There are many thiugs we iould hie, to no
