We chronicle the fol lowing sketch of a conversation said to have takeu place between Mr. Benton and certain of liis frauds as being a morceau tou good to be lost: It was announced to Mr. Benton that the counsel in the Thomas case had mutually agreed to an adjustment?the terms of which Mr. Bpnton approved. Mr. Benton then went on tu express his gratification at his relief from this embarrassment, and to say that now he was ready to receive his commission and go at once to Mexico. One of tlic company said': 'But in what ca pacity will you go, Col Benton V ?I shall go with plenary powers?powers to carry ou ihe war?powers to make peace? powers t? prescribe the terni9 of peace'?was the reply. ? _ 'What will you do with the war, Col. Ben ton?' was the next question. To this the Col. replied, 'O, I will bring down my boy, Fremont to Mexico, and we will carry the war into the very heart of Mex co.' 'Are you sure, sir,' was the next question, j 'that Mr. Polk will conler on you these plena I ry powers?' 'He caninot do otherwise,' was the reply, 'it is the only thing he can do.' The inveterate questioner continued?'But Col. Benton, it is my opinion that the Presi dent and his Cabinet wish to engage your ser vices, but in a secondary capacity !' Thp Col. reddened and stormed. 'Secondct ry) sir?I. will be second to no one. "Aut l 'a;sar, aut nullus," is my motto. The Presi dent k^ows that, and will not propose a secon dary position to me.' 'Do you know, Colonel,' continued the scep tic, 'that Mr. Polk is a very false man. Do you know that he will deceive you?' Here the Colonel threw himself into a rage, and uttered qi fierce and terrible denunciation, in advance, against any treachery on the part of Mr. Polk or his administration. 'It remains tabe seen whether his (Santa Ana's) return may not yet prove to be favorable to a pal cific adjustment of the existing difficulties, it being manifestly his interest not to persevere, in the pro secution of a war commenced by Paredes touc complish a purpose so absurd as the reconquest of Texas and the Sabine." Polk's Message., Dec. 1846. The,natural inquiry is, whether the Presi dent knew, that his affectionate friend Santa Ana purposed to give a desperate battle to our Army and capture old Rough and Ready, be fore that yet should come ? 23- It is hinted that Mr. Polk will recall San ta Ana since he has suffered old Zack to whip him so soundly! Battle of Biiemt Vista. This is the fourth regular battle that Gen. Taylor has fou^tf. says the Philadelphia Inquirer, in eady&9e his force being much inferior in nuty*?18 to that opposed to him, and in each, ne^rt^e'es9? his triumph has been signal. Caty^'e wonder therefore that the American ^ople should speak of him with enthusiasm //Whether we contemplate the modesty, br^y^Y> an^ beauty of his despatches, the cley'ieai'e<^ sagacity which characterizes his ory*fl,'on8> ve'n noble humanity which ^rfmgles with and mel lows his chivalric spdlt,> or l^e dauntless he roism which marks his movements on the field of battle, he i^eed is superior?the man for the crisis and^e occasion, and worthy a nation's gratity^ an(l plaudits. Gen. Taufr,s Glories. Gen. Taylor enjoys the glory / having conquered the Northern Indians Fort Harrison. He enjoys the glo ry of living conquered the Southern Indians on th/ Withalacoochie. He enjoys the>glory of having conquered the Mexicans on the im mortal fields ol Palo Alto, Resaca dela Palma, and Monterey. He enjoys the glory of exhib iting a moderation, a modesty, and a magna nimity in the hour of victory, equal to his tran scendent coolness, skill, and courage, in the hour of conflict. He enjoys the glory of hav ing routed President Santa Ana at the head of anartyiy five times more numerous than our own on the day of Washington's birth. There is one more glory for him to enjoy?the defeat of President Polk and his army of Ficklinites, TUompsonites, and Bentonites. Potatoes?CobbeWs Prophecy. A correspon dent of the London Economist has furnished thh following : 'Last evening, I met at dinner a Roman Catholic Priest, a Doctor Smith, from Comemara county, Galway, who relate! the following conversation he had with that ex traordinary man, Cobbett, in 1826. While speaking of Ireland, Cobbett said that the dirty weed (alluding to the potatoe) would be the curse of Ireland. ?How so?' replied Dr. Smith,'what must the people do without it? they live upon it. They have had it iii cultivation one hundred and eighty years-' Cobbett answered, 'they must go back to the same food "they were accustomed to live upon previously to the general cultivation of the dirty weed: and that is to grain, as wheat, oats, rye, &.c. You have four millions of souls in Ireland, and eight million# of acrere of un cultivated ground. This ground must be dtained, and brought into cultivation, and yon must again grow wheat, oats, rye, &o. The potatoe will not last more than twenty years, when it will work itself out, and then you will sec to what a state Ireland will be reduced. You must return again to grain crops; and Ireland, instead of being the most degraded, will become one of Ihe finest countries in the world. You may live to see my words prove true, but I never shall.' It is suggested, that the reason why Mrj Polk haa not ordered a salute at the Araenal in ho nor of the glorloua victory of Buena Viata. arisja rom the fact that all the cannon which used to blncken the grounds of that depot have been sent to 1 Vera Crux!
