probably holds peace or war in the

appear willing to astist Mexico, or to

most violent journals in London,

conduct in Texas, and grossly mis
represented our character, seem un
willing to kindle a war out of the

Calculation in Printing. Every
column of a newspaper contains sev
eral thousand distinct pieces ol metal,
the misplacing ol one of which would
cause a blunder or typographical er

be more disposed to excuse than to
magnify errors of the Press.

Court of justice, is bound to "fit," or
the garment may be thrown upon

French opinions.- -The Courier Fran
cais, in speaking of the reported dec
laration of hostilities between the
United States and Mexico, remarks:
'The struggle between these two
sta'cs cannot be doubtful: and we
are only astonished that Mexico has
not better considered its p:wer.
However, there is a great distance
between the talking of war and the
acttiall v enizajrin.: in it. Hence it is
probable that an in'ernational revo
lution, in upsetiinj: the unstable pow
er which governs Mexico, may put
an end to the crisis befmea shot shall
have been fired. Considering this,
we should not be uneasy at the re
ports of war which comes ti us from
the new world, did we not perceie
the hand of England stirring tip dis
cord for her own profit After hav
ing vainly endeavored to oppose the
annexation of Texas, she now tries
to raise up enemies to the American
republic. She is now going to at

which her diplomacy failed to effect.

Americans, she protects them.

Reform in the Nivy.. Below we
copy from the New York Morning
XVvs, an article relating to a much
needed reform in the Navy. Some

all kinds of tricks and ingenuity to
make out that lie was unseaworthy.
but was thwarted in them all, nn.l
had at last to put out to sea. This
is right- It is unjust lo impose all
the hardest service upon one set of
public officers, while others will
shield themselves by tricks and excu
ses, unless the service is to their own
liking, that is, easy & pleasant, which
has been the case heretofore.
'Mr. Bancroft has introduced one
reform for which he is entitled to the
public thanks. When an officer now
receives an order, he knows he must
obey it or else be very civilly but
firmly put on furlough and half-pay.
The "day of frivolous excu'es has
gone by. A bonafuk strong case of
justification, such as illness, or other
truly imperative reasons, alone now
induces an officer to apply for release
troni orders-or gives him any chance
of applying with success. Former
Secretaries have comjl lined of the
difficulty of getting a set of officers
for any other than the most agreeable
service. There is no difficulty now.
Sea or furlough to be or not to be
that is the question; find it is mnrvel
lous to witness the excellent effect
already produced in the general spir
it of the service by this very simple
formula to which Mr. Bancroft has
reduced the matter. So much."
