THE ATOCJ1A MISSION.
Since Mr. P6lk restored Santa Anna to head
the Mexican army, to rouse the dormant ener
gies of the nation, to unite her factions ,_io con
centrate her hostilities against the United Skates,
and to sacrifice the lives of thousands of our
patriotic people, the administration has hesita
ted *t no step, however reckless or extreme.?
Encouraged by the hosannahs of a subsidized
press, which, with one accord, applauded this
a<?t of bold and barefaced treason in time o^
"war, they have gone on in a career of outrage
?pon the constitution, of violation to the laws,
^and of insult to the country, These excesses
iave been continued until the current has turn
ed, and the divine justice of retribution seems
now to have begun its progress. Deliberate
treachery entails punishment upon the traitor.
There is no probability of escaping it, even in
the highest position to which the consent of
society can exalt the worst and meanest of men.
The recent popular elections have demonstrsi
led that the administration has not only forleit
ted the confidence and respect of the country,
but that its political quackery, and its Presi
dent's war, has been repudiated from one end
of the Union to the other. Even Virginia,
the Gibraltar of locofocoism, which withstood
the tornado of 1840, has abandoned her idols
and proven that "the way of the transgressor
is hard."
Next to the treasonable restoration of Santa
Anna, the employment of his pimp and prote
gee, Atocha, on a semi-official mission to Mex
ico, is one of the most daring indignities ever
offered to the American people. The official
paper of Mexico informs us ol the terms, that
ibis person is represented to have tendered on
behalf of the United Slates, as a basis of peace.
The parallel ol 26 degrees to the Pacific fif
teen millions in cash?no indemnity for the
war, and an army of ten thousand men to main
lain the boundary.
While the administration has directed its min
ions abroad to deny the authority of Atocha to
propose these terms of accommodation, the
President's paper lure has not yet dared to affirm
that he was not instructed verbally to make
such representations to one of the parties in'
Mexico. It has attempted to be sure, to ex
tricate the government by averring that he was
Jiot appointed an "American Plenipotentiary,"
though it is candid enough to admit, he was
the "bearer of a despatch." Now, we under
take ts assert, that he.was possessed of the views
of our gov't, afiiTWai Sent to Mexico wren mr
other view than to bring over by bribery or oth
erwise, the most formidable interest into paci
fication, promising our support to maintain its
authority. The despatch which he bore was
only a disguise,to his errand and the means by
which his services were requited out of the
Secret Service fund of the Department of State.
Now that the experiment has failed, and the
confidential agent of Mr. Polk has been pub
licly disgraced, it may suit the purposes of the
administration to put off the responsibility, and
disown the connection. It shall not succeed in
this contemptible trick. We intend to nail the
base coia to tke counter, and to hold them and
their confederate up to the indignation and
scorn of the country.
And who is this Atocha that has so engross
ed the favor and -the confidence of the Execu
tive 7 We know of him in Mexico as one of
the brokers or inferior agents of Santa Anna,
and in the United States, according to the Del
ta, a journal friendly to the administration, as
a member of the night watch ol one of the
municipalities.
These are the sort of characters who are en
trusted wilh the confidential missions of our
diplomacy?who bring with them no reputation
for honor and integrity,and who appear under
circumstances of the gravest suspicion. There
was no "Democrat" or citizen in our country,
it appears, in whom the administration could
sufficiently confide to bear a despatch to Mex
ico, or rather to bear terms for the adjustment
of a treaty. A Mexican and one too, notori
ously the ally, if not now the secret agent of
Santa Anna, must be preferred over all their
beads, and have showered upon him the favors
and the confidence of those in power. Loco
focoism may submit to such outrages, but
thank God there is a party identified with the
interests and the reputation of the country, that
.will resist such treacherous collusion, cost what
it may. The administration in the course of
this war hat done every thing for Mexico, and
everything against the United States. Its poli
cy and its principles are Mexican, and its sym
pathies as well as its' services, are entirely with
Santa Anna. We cannot express our opinion of
lhe present administration more exactly than in
ibe words of Sir Rich. Steele, "that we are gov
erned by a set of drivellers, whose folly takes
away aU dignity from distress, and makes even
calamity ridiculous."
NOMINATING CONVENTION. ? The
Boston Whig considers the nomination of
General Taylor a Southern movement, and
made wilh a determination to dispense with
the interposition of a Convention. Our con
temporary may not be far from right in the
latter supposition. The PEOPLE will nomi
nate General Taylor without the medium of
any Convention. Such a body may meet to
confirm the nomination if necessary.
While Nicholas Carr, of Howard
District, and lady, were absent from home on
the 12th inst, about 1 o'clock, his dwelling took
lire and both house and furniture were entirely
destroyed.

A PATENT RIGHT QUESTION?A
curious question under the law of patents has
recently been argued before the U. S. Circuit
Court in New Jersey. The patentee of a cer
tain improvement applied for an injunction
against a party who was using the impiove
ment without leave, which application ,was
resisted by the latter on the ground lha| the
improvement was in part a piracy fropa
tent of his own. That is, he had a patent for
a certain machine; the applicant took this
machine without leave, made a partial im
provement on it, aud obtained-a patent for the
whole; and he contended that, as the applicant
had stolen his invention in the first place, he
could not come before the Qourt with an equi;
table claim for redress when that which was
honestly his own was stolen in return.
The decision of the Court on this novel
question will be looked for with interest.
GEN. TAYLOR ON THE FIELD OF
BATTLE.
Lieut. Corwine writes to the Cincinnati
Chronicle, and gives the following interesting
sketch of General Taylor on the battle field of
Buena Vista:
"By way of illustrating an important cha
racteristic of General Taylor, to wit, determi
nation, i will briefly relate" a scene that occur
esd nn tha-battle ground of Vista, dur
ing the battle of the 23d. At a time when the
fortunes of the day seemed extremely proble
matical?when many on our side even de
j spaired of success?old Rough and Ready, as
he is not .inaptly styled, whom, you must
know is short, fat and dumpy in person, with
remarkable short leg$s-took his position on a
commanding height, overlooking the two ar
mies. This was perhaps about three, or, may
be, four o'clock in the afternoon. The ene
my, who had succeeded in gaining an advan
tageous position, made a tierce charge upon
our column, and fought with a desperation
that seemed for a time to insure success to
their arms. The struggle lasted for some timr.
All the v/hile, General Taylor was a silent
spectator, his countenance exhibiting the most
anxious solicitude, alternating betweeu hope
and despondency. His stali", perceiving his
perilous situation, (for he was exposed to the
fire ot the enemy) approached him and im
plored him to retire. He heeded them not. His
thoughts were intent upon victory or deleat.
He knew not at this moment what Uie- result
would be. He felt that that engagement was to
decide his fate. He had given all his orders
and selected his position. If the clay went
against him he was irretrievably lost; if for
Rim, he could rejoice in common with his
countrymen, at the triumphant success of our
arms. - . ,
"Such seemed to be his thoughts?his deter
mination. And when he saw the enemy give
way and retreat in the utmost confusion, he
gave free vent to his pent up feelings. His
rightleg was quickly disengaged from the pum
mel of the saddle, where it had remained dur
ing the whole of the fierce encounter?his
arms, which were calmly folded over his breast,
.relaxed their hold?his feet faiily danced in
the stirrups, and his whole body was in mo
tiou. It was a moment of the most exciting
and intense interest. His face was suffused
with tears. The day was won?the victory
complete?his little army saved from the dis
grace of a defeat, and he could not refrain from
weeping for joy at what had seemed to so
many, but a moment before, as an impossible
result. Long may the noble and kiud-hearted
old hero live to enjoy the honors of his nume
rous brilliant victories, and mafly other honora
that a grateful country will ere long besto*.v
upon him."
A Wonderful Negro. The Richmond" Chro
nicle gives an account of a negro boy about
21 years of age, belonging to Mr. McLernine,
of Alexandria, whose jpower in collecting
numWrs is remarkable. His intellect b^ing of
the lowest order in every thing except where
the power of computing numbers, -which is
unlimited by figures. The most difficult sums
in any of the grand divisions of arithmetic,
and even those involving the nicest calcula
tions of mathematics, are solved by him with
perfect accuracy, and in an incredible short
space of time. His performances in this re
spect are really wonderful.
HARPER'S CELEBRATED
RAZOR POWDER,

certWicatm.
Washington City, D. C.
It M very seldom that I have ever recommended
any new invention, because I know that recommen
dations are so frequent and ea?ily obtained, that they
are in general of little value. But I consider it
j nothing more than an act of justice to the inventor
to hear testimony to the good qualities of Harper's
Metalic Compound for sharpening Razors, and to
say it is the very best material for the purpose that
has come to my notice. I have made a fair trial of
it, and have never found any thing equal to it for
giving a keen edge to a Razor.

I have for the past two years sold Harper's

would noj be willing to be without it. It surpasses
any thing of the kind ever used. Send me five dozen

We, the subscribers, have used Harper's Razor
Powder, for several years, and from our own experi
ence find it to be the very best material we have ever
used for giving a fine keen edge to a Razor. N o
