WAR WITH MEXICO. I
There can be but little doubt that
nutters between Mexico and this
Government arc assuming a threat
ening aspect. It has ever been our
opinion, that had Mexico been I t
alone, and no foreign influence
brought to bear upon her, that such
a state of tilings as a declaration of
war would never have been thought
of; that the relations of amity and
peace which have heretofore existed m' 'I' r has sued a rum.-i!er for libel

Juckson, is soon to appear. It will
be, beyond doubt, a work of deep in

tiie old Hero itself, furnishes an al
most inexhaustable theme for the pen

assurance that it will loose none of

Jackson desired that Mr. Kendall

they should be returned to the hands
