Important from Mexico, via Havana.
-By the arrival of the Brig Adela, Capt.
Watson, at this port, we hav'e been fa
tored with the following irileresting and
i~mportani items, fron's Mexico. They
were furnished to Captain Watson by Mr.
Oampbell, our Consul, at Havana, a'nd
were received at that place by the packet
from Vera Cruz of the 6th inst.:
Santa Anna is still at San Luis Potosi,
at the head of 22,000 men, generally oc
-eupied with his favorite amusement of
.Gen Taylor is seid to have left hiis re
cent position and passed' Victoria at the
bead of-6900 men,.supposed to~ be on his
mnarch to Tampico.
The clergy have refused to contribute
the $8.000,000 attemgpted to be raised from
tlism;.they are much excited against Santa
Apna, and are endeavoring to get up
pronunciamentos against him.
Th4 whole cabinet of Santa Anna are
reported to have resigned. Great jealoti
sies exist drrong.the different Generals in
the Mexican Army, and consequently
much' donfusion and disorgaitization pro.
dispirited and expect the city to be at
tacked by the Americans on the 2d Feb.
The best. informed think the resistance
which will be madeby the garrison will
be feeble, and it fall an easy conquest. In
the Castle there are only 1000 men, and
badly suppliod with provisions, the chief
dependence being on Vera Cruz for sup
plies. Many vessels laden with valuable
cargoes have run the blockade, and enter
.d different ports of Mexico; some tent
have left Havana for Alvarado and Tus
pan in the last mouth. A large reanch
ship with a valuable cargo has been re
cently captured, after having been warned
off once, for a second attempt to enter.
The May Flower had arrrived in Ha
vana with Lieut. Col. Rantdolph's com
mand of 318 men. The object is to sup.
ply medicines, which it appears had not
been furnished in sufficient quantities pre
vious to her leaving Norfolk. The men
are fine looking, zealous and anxious ti
meet the Mexicans in the field of battle,
or to plant the Standia'd presented to them
on the wall of St. Jua i de Ulloa.
The Standard is a beautiful one. hav
ing on one side the arms of the United
States, and the arms of :heir idolized State
of Virginia on the reverse side.
Col. Randolph's comtnand are in fine
health, except some 18 men laboring under
the affliction of Syphilis. It was for their
imprudence, unfortunately, that additional
medicines are needed. The May Flower
will sail 7th inst., for Point Isabel, that
being the original destination of the vessel.

ET We received, a short time since, a copy
of the Speech of the lion. A. BuWr, " on the
Oregon Territorial Bill, delivered in the [House
of Representatives, Janitary 14th, 1847." 'Ye

117 We have devotud a large portion of to
day's paper, to the Speech of Mir. Calhi oun
upon the three million bill, and the debatp
upon the Resolutions offered by Mr. Yulee,
Senator from Florida, relative to the exputlsion
of Mr. Ritchie, of the Union, from a seat in
that body. Kniowing the anxiety that is at all
times felt by the. citizens of this section of the
Union, relative to the views of Mr.. Calhoun,
upon all important subjects, wve feel satisfied
that our patrons will find no fimlt with us for
crowding out other matter, which might, per
haps, given them a paper containing more va
riety, but certainly not more interesting at the
Relieffor Ireland.-The House of Repre
sentatives has read a Bill thre second time,with
out a dissenting voice, arppropriating five hun

fring inhabitants of Ireland; the bill wvas re
ferred to a committee of the Whole, wvho no
doubt will report as becones an enlightened
ic British ParliamentL-Pazliameut jcon
menced its session on the 19th nit., and opened
by the Queen in person. In her speech, after
noticing various matters, her majesty says,
" the extinction of the free State of Cracow
tits appeureU to. ne so mainifest a violation of
the treaty of Vienna, that I have commanded
that a protest against that act should be deliv
ered to the courts of Vien na, Petersburgh, and
Berlin, which were parties to it."
The marriage of the son of the King of
France, with the Infanta of Spain, she also
notices as having given rise to a correspon
dence between England and France.
France.-Louxis Phillippe, in his speech to
the Peers and Deputies now in session, says,
that he has protested against the incorporation
of the State of Cracow, which was formerly
independent, with the empire of Austria. As
the British government has also-protested
against it, this aatter nay cause serious difli
culties in Europe.
Sccrctary of State.-The official relations of
Robr. Q. Pinckney, Esq., with the State as
Secretary of State, ceased on the 18th instant,
when the Hon. D. K. Henegan, elected at the
last session of the Legislature, assumed the du
ties of that office.
Rail Road.-We cull the attention of our
readers to a'corinu nication in this day's paper,
over the signature of " .AFETr--VALV," upon
the subject of the Edgefield and Aiken Rail
Road. We are assured they will be paid for
tietrouble that they may take in perusing of
it. Whilst upon this topic, n hich interests
a large portion of this community. (e would
remind our correspondents, that our office, is
at present located directly in the rear of the
Court House, and is at all times open, (Sun
days excepted,) from sunrise until sundown,
where all communications, upon that, or any
other subject, will be than kfully'received, and
we will be.saved the expense (which by the
by is no trifle,) occurred by their being drop
ped into the Post Ollice. This precaution,, on
the part of our correspondents, will, no doubt,
-enable us, in the course of a few years, to take
at least,.one share of stock. " A word to the

Relief of Ireland.-The meetings throughout
the country for the relief of the sufferers in Ire
land, according to our exchanges, have been
numerously attended, and large amounts sub.
scribed. From almost every section of our
vast country, we heat the expressions of sym
pathy, for this truly suffering people, who, at
the best of times. arae hardly dealt with. In
the emporiuiof our State, much is at present
doing, in their behalf, and front a circular late
ly published there, we are invited tocontribute
our mite. The Charleston Rail Road Compa
ny,-with their usual liberality, have published
that they will transport all kinds of provisions,
destined for the use of those people, "free of
freight." Is it not probable that some good na
tured tezmsters wonld carry, what might be
subscribed in our village and adjacent country,
to Hamb'trg or Aiken. grants? We think
such conld he found, and therefore hope that
the libcral hearted ulOld Edgelield will coin e
forwArd and throw in their muites, either in
provisions or money. Is there none %% ho will
step forward and commence this good work ?
