the antecedent'decCeoas unanimously
agreed to in the General Congress on the
THE MEXICAN WAR.
The followiug article is from the Ne"
York Herald of Tuesday:
Attack cn San Juan tJlloa.-We stated
some time ago that it was determined upon
by the Cabinet that the fort ofSan Juan
.d'Ulloa should be bombarded by our
squadron in the Gulf; and that the honor
of inking that hitherto considered impreg
nable fortress, would ere lone be purl of
the'lfistory of our navy, and compose one
of its proudest laurels. We at the same
time published a list of the vessels of war
that were selected for that purpose, the
number of guns, &c.. and expressed our
conviction that the force was amply suf
ficient for the purpose. The Washington
Uni.en took us to task f..r that statement.
and undertook to correct w hat it consider
ed an erri tmir, by saying that the Penn.
sylvania, Ohio, and North Carolina, wsere
not then in conmissiron. and could' not be
used for the purpose intended.
We knew at the time we maslo the
statement that those vessels were not in
cotimission ; but we were well infortned
that surveys of them had been ordered.
and .that they could be o!aced in a cond
lion equal to any etuergency in the cocrse
ofa few weeks. We are now inlormted
from authoriiv which we consider beyond
doubt in such matters, that the statetnltfi
we have made wts it tie- in every material
respect; and that the bontbardn:ent of San
Juan de Ulloua is now set down by the ad
ministration as part of ;he measures that
will be prosecuted against Mexico, if over
lures of peace were not soot received.
Tampico, if not already taken, will soon
be in possession of o;r forces , and the
biontbard ment of tile Castle of San Jan
de Ullona. dat the captutr of Vera Cr..z.
" ill be the nevi act in the dratta. The
time, too, is appointed. for taking Vera
Cruz. and ne are informed that the be
ginning of October is set down as the tire.
For this purpose the adtniastratiun is paros
eeuting its arrangernents with all the vieor
possille ; and before :hat irme we trill

rain of cars that }ever passed frot Maron
to this place, was greeted by the repealed
and almost deafening cheers of our citi

linfshed passenger cars, and was whirled
into our midst by a powerful engine-l he
Ker Boyce. Thes' cars were crowded to
excess by about three hundred perons
from the cities of Savannah, Macon and
Grillin, and inter mediate stations. It also
brought a fine hand trom .Macon. Nex.

another train from Augusta, with two ad

of march, through our streets, the vast con
course thus paraded, passed successively
over the Western and Atlantic. the Ma

very heart of our city ; and then proceeded
to a most beautiful spring, a fourth of a
mile from town, where a stand was pre

the July nmher of the Sontherni Quarterly

William .uttirord. Article secotnd, is entitled
" The Preacher." -Atr ticle third; " Onslow, or.
the Protege of an Enthiamst, by a gentleman
of A labanm." A rticle h'ourth, " Italy." Arti
cle fif'th, "The Study at' History." 4trticle,
sixth, ' Th'le sondition of WVoman, 'in the nine.
teenth centiury." Article seventh. -MAr. Clay
and the A merican Systemo." A rticle the eighth.,'
"The' Nebular Hlypothiesis." Article ninth,
Thme first article, a review of a new transla
tion of H omer's liiad, by Wm'. .Muaford, Esq.,
a Virginia gentleimani, is froml the pen of Geo.
F. H-obris.E~qr., well known for his excellent
eritical essays, many of which have formerly
appeared in the Southern Quarterly Revj~eiv.
The article by Professor [Holmes, fully sustains
his high character as a scholat, a nd as a chaste
andceloqtiein writer. It is a very elaborate,
nnd appatently impartial review of air. Mun
ford's translation. It places it above any which --
hias yet been tmade or the old Grecian bard.
The reviewer conisiders it more faithfunl than
that of Pope. though devoid of the eleganco
and ornamnetnt which .characterize that transla
tion. le thinks it preferable on this account,
as it partakes more of the simplicity and gran
deur of thme father of pietry. He re'gards it as
better than the translation by Cowper, which
lioinah generally faithful, is. devoid of alnost -
every grace-ofstyle, ar~d is peculiarly ritgged
in the versification.- 114 thinksi itjfarpi~efera'
