Rumors of Peace.-Rumors have been
-rife at Washington that Mexico had ac
cepted our proposals for peace, and had
-agreed to receive an American Minister to
conclude a treaty. The Baltimore Sun
.publishes a letter from its correspondent at
Saltillo, under date of the 21st December,
which states that a report had arrived
there direct from San -Louis-de Potosi, to
the effect that the Mexican Congress had
- agreed to accept a Miuister from the Uui
ted States to treat for peace.. He also
states that pei. -Worth had received on
the 20th December a Fetter of a-very pa
scific character from Santa Anna. The
Correspondent also says that an individu
a; was in Saltillo, who stated that he had
seen the bill passed by the Mexican Con
gress authorizing the appointment of a
Commissioner to treat for peace, and that
he saw it distributed in the form of a
handbill and posted upin the City of Mex
ico and at Sin Luis de'Potosi.
In reply to all this, tie Union says that
t has not b'oen advised of any such report
having been oflicialfy received at Wash
ington, and thinks that if it had ct tno from
San Luis de Potosi, it would most proba
bly have reached Gen. Taylor at Victoria.
But dispatche have been received from
the latter as late as January 7tn. from
Victoria, in which he is entirely silent up.
on the subject of any such report, but on
the contrary, states that ile last accounts
from Mexico were to the 19th December
at w-hich time the Congress had taken no
action in regar- to the war. -
Still more to mistify the matter, we
notice that the bill appropriating three
millions of dollars, to be used by the
President, in negotiating a peace, was
en up in the Senate on Tuesday. In
-'-tpening the debate, Mr. Sevier, whd-rom
' his position as Chairman of the Commit
tee of Foreign Relations, we suppose is
enabled "to speak by the card," stated
that the President was satisfied by infor
mation he had-received fron Mexico, that
a peace coul'd be negotiated, and that he
was ready to enter into such a negotiation,
based on the cessation of New Mexico
and California to the United .Statei. In
this unceitainty, we have nothing to do,
but to 'watcb this shadow ofcomiug events.

Thad Misunderstanding at Rio.-A let
ti received by the New York Journal of
Commerce from Rio Janeiro, dated 25th
Nov., confiris the re.ports of the ditficul
ties between the Braiiarn government
and our minister. The writer accounts
in the .following manner for the pre'judice
againist Mr. Wise:
-The Brazilian government dislike Mr.
Wise because he has been very -iniru
mental-in breaking up the slave trade
refusing to allow A merican merchant men
so'ld .here notoriously for slaving, to sail
under a sealed letter with the American
flag. You know the laws about licensing
vessels, .and understand what I mtean.
Mr. Wise -has, in doing .this incurred the
displeasure of the Brazilians, and hence
their disposition to make difficulty and
have his recall. Mr. WVise says the I . S
schooner Enterprise, that was condemned
at the Navy Yard (Brooklyn) 1ivo years
ago, has made three successful voyages to
Africa after slaves, and is now on the
fotsrth. She sold for .$1,500, and in 3
months cleared hereowners, in his know I
There seems to be some secrecy in the
expedition now preparing at New Oi leans

Iat"1t would appear to be a special expe

will be about 10,-000 toen.

IT HAS PERFECTLY CURED ME !
PHILADELPtA, December 1837.
To Dr. D. Jayne-Dear Sir-The astonish
ing and miraculous beneficial effects your val
tuable EXPECTORANT had on my neig';hor,
the Rev. Mr. Rushing, made sp favorable.im
pression on my mind, that after consulting with
several friends, and learning that you were a
regular Practitioner of Medicine. I called upon
you, and purchased half a dozen bottles, and
told you that if I lived to take them, you should
have a good report from me.
I am alive and well this day ! Thanks to ;a
merciful God, and your Expecturant'; and now
I come forward cheerfully to fulfil my promise.
For twenty long years had I oeen a constant
sufferer from the effects of a hard, dry cough,
pain in the breast, and difficulty of breathing ;
the last five of which, chilly and fevedra, every
spring and fall, added to my misery. I was
worn away to a mere skeleton; with thegreat
est difficulty only could I get up and down
stairs; my appetite was gone, and my strength
had so far failed mne, that my friends were per
suaded I could not survive many weeks, unless
I obtaired relief. Indeed,sir, ny situation was
so perfectly miserable to myself, and so ais
tressiug to my family, that I felt willing to die,
whenever it should please the Master to take
me home. But .I herd:ofyotr medicine, and
relief came. Yes' it proved the "Balm of
Gilead" to any poor afflicted body. Before I
had taken osE BoTTLE, I experiennod a miti
gation of all any symptoms, and to my great
Joy I found in the continued use of it the hap
piest reief. In short air, IT HAS MADE A
PERFECT CURE OF M E-and I can truly
say, I have no desire to be better.
With everlasting gratitude, l am, dear sir,
your obliged friend. MARV GILL.

Mr. Editor:-During thecanvass for a Sen

the assertion that at a previous session of the
Legislature Mr. Griffin offered a resolution for
the suppression of "the retailing of spiritubus
liquors," which was flatly contradicted. Now,
for the satisfaction of the public and in vindi'
cation-of .myself, g raefr to the Journal of the

'" The following preamble and resolutions
