iJhis war, to be pursued with success, re
n4ires men acclimated and-accustomned to
erestraints of military life. lIndeed all
'aasof invasion demand well appointed,
pelI disciplied and permanent armies. In
*am .enemy's couutry, it is necessary to he
e*er on * the. lookout; to be ready at any
tiime, to meet an attack in front, in rear, to
,t he. right, or to-thae.left. In a moment an
.army may .be overwhelmed by a force
.presenting itself' from some unexpected
,pssor mount ain defile:. -The utmost dii
*gence, therefore, trained courage, activity
and skill are requisite. 'Without. these,
r7~.orible may ,be the consequences~ With

But in.a climate like that of Mexico,
the consiant introduction of large bodies of
fresh troops, greatly intreases the amount
of mortality. The history of the late cam
paign proves this most fully. - -Thousands
died off from., the diseases of the, climate.

,bJj the time ie tro..p 1are carried thither.
and *rai'ed so as to if serviceable, the ex
-piration of their term of service is at hatid,
and they must be dismissed to give way to
new and raw recruits. There will be,
then% a continual'passing'and repassing of
undisciplied troops -through the enemy's
country, subject to all the disasters of the
climate and dangers of the enemy, to say
nothing of the very great expense to the
government. Besides, the army being al
ways in a fluctoating condition, a General
will be crippled in his efforts, and will be
greatly hindered in undertaking grand and
important enterprises. The consequences
are so palpable, they need no further illus
tration. Fronr all these considerations, we
conclude, that volunteers siould not be
employed in the further prosecution of this
war, and those. that are now.in the service
should be dismissed.
But peculiar reasons exist for the dis
charge of the Palmetto Regiment. Its
services were offered originally for twelve
mouths. By a ruse de guerre, ror which
the piesent Administration.is somewhat
noted, it was tricked into a tender of its
services during the continuance of the war,
in the fallacious hope, (excited by the!
friends of the President.) that the" war
would -be brought to a speed'y termination.
Independently-of this hope, the pride of
many was touched, 'and sooner than bear
the odium of a refusal to volunteer under
the new requisition, they would have en
tered into the war with certain know!edge
ofits continuing for five years or more
The President and his friends were awrare
of the advantage, they thus held 'over the
original volunteers; and they did not hesi.
tate to exercise it.' Jt is butjustice, there
fore, we think, thej should make some
renuneration for the' prois they have re
alizedby their happy siroke of diplomacy,
aid if they can do nothing more, -at least
allow the few poor fellows of the Regi
ment, who are left. to return to their Ofiends
and'firesides." It is what th6 common die
tates of humanity would stggest. -
'But' the Palmetto'Regiment has ran its
career. It has fulfilled. its-destiny:.it has
fulfy discharged its duty, and!the.time for
*ts dismissal is. already. at .hanJ. It. has
