It will be seen that the President is firm in ad
vocating the Independeut Treasury plan. lie
uses strong arguments against a National Bank,
or a connexione of the Government with State
Banks. He disclaims all hostility to State batnks,
but recommends to the government, to form no
union with them, and to use them only, as the
public policy and general interest of the coun
try may require. This is but just and reasona
ble None but the nost prejudiced advocates
of the banks, can say that this is waging war a
gainst those institutions. Mr. Van Buren trly
says, " that the only safe or proper principle up
on which their intercourse with the govertiment
can be regulated, is that which regulates their
intercourse with the private citizen-the con
ferring of mutual benefits." If the banks wish
for any more than this, it is but to increase, to a
large extent, their own profits. We publish,
this week, that portion of the Message which is
of most interest to our readers. We will give
them. the conclusion in our sext paper.
Aarter Turisp.-The Office of the Augusta
Constitutionalist appear to be a depository of
mammoth Turnips. We wish our planters
would procure the seed. Iere is the Editor's
description of a huge turnip:

ception of a turnip, weighing 7 lbs. 81 oz.
-but it was i *mall affair to one we now

shape, it would be difficult to run a string,

N,:w OnrLI iAs, Dec. 8.
VaaA Cauz TAxxC.-By the French
Steatm Ship Meteor, arrive'd ss:t niahm ins
60 hours from Vera Cruz. intellig~ence is
received that the Castle of Satnan tde
Ullon, was taken by the F'rench fleet sifter
a bonmbardmnen' ofthree hoturs, with a loss
of only four men, by she blockadting squad
ron: whila from 4 to 500 Mexicans were
killed. In the same shaip came a mtessen
ger. who has hurried ona to Washington,
being the hearer of important dispatchses.
From the Courier we take the following
particulars of th.e bomnbardment.
On the 27th of Nove'mber. the Freich
Admiral. Bauditn, sent word to the Mexi
catn General, Rittcon, that he was about to
attack the Castle of San Jesan de [Ulhun.
A bout 2 o'clock the same da.v,three French
frigates, a sloop of war and two bomb.

gunshot of the Caste: and so well directed

the gre of t) pieees of Mexican artillery,
:ein,olished all the out works, includiiig
the famous redoubt called El Caballetol
andi killed and wounded 0(1 of the Mexi
About 6 o'clock in the afternooo of the
27th, he Mexican c,nionander in the Cas
tIe, hung out a signal for the cessai6h of
hostilities, and begged leave to be allowed
limte to withdraw hio, wolnded from-the
ruins of the fortication. Admiral Baudin
replied that le could consent to no truce,
hut would allow the Mexicans to retire
from the fort if ltey capitulated. To this
the Mexicfn General agreed, and with
drew hi4 troops from the Castle, which
was immediately occupied by the French
soldiers and marimes.
The Mexican army, near Vera Cruz,
Was abloti 5,000 strong, but their officers
did not consider thieinselves able.to-hold
the town, commanded as ij was by the
gui, of the Castle, until the Frencli Ad
uiral consented that one thousand of the
Mexican troops should remain in the city
to preserve order.
It was bPlieved that negociations had
been commenced between the Mexican
Government and the,French Admiral, for
the re-r-maf:lishmtent of peace, but some
ime may elapse berore the result is known.
The 1rench Admiral it was thought,
wiuld no lonver hinder tie vessels of all
nations from trading to Vera Cruz.
We have here: given all the particulars
which have reached its. Of the ulterior
designs of either the French or Mexicans,
we are ignorant. Time alone can tell,
whether the Mexicans, dispirited by thi,
their first trial of strength,with the French,
will consent to patch up a peace and pay
the money demniaded of then; or whether
the war will be prolonged, and lead to
further conquest by the arms of Lou6
