The editor of the Washington Union says
that the Whigs are retreating from some ol
their positions.' He will find, says ihe Louis
ville Journal, that what he calls a retreat from
some of their positions is but a falling back
from Agua Nueva to Buena Vista.

Think of this, Mr. Polk, in the 19th century!
How much more noble and worthy of man's
destiny would it be if these children were en
gaged in learning the arts of peace f
? The Union thinks it very doubtful whether
the Mexican leaders will attempt to get up an
other regular army for the prosecution of the
war. Does Mr. Polk know any thing about
* the designs of his friend Dot-and-go ene?
We are happy to learn that the Mississippi
flood, which swept a few days ago over Gen.
Taylor's plantation, did. little or no injury to
his property. The old General himself can
stand fire, and his farm can stand water.
Mr. Polk's Mexican accomplice has shown
himself pretty good at fighting, but a good deal
better at running away. So far as he is con
, cerned, the war has emphatically been what
he himself calls it in his late address to his
countrymen?'a war of races?

The Washington Union says that " the glo

Resident." We think, says the Louisville

establishments, have been emancipated. The
only remains of slavery in Wallachia are about
48,000 individuals, without private property.
Episcopal Convention. The sixty-third con
vention of the Protestant Episcopal Church in
Pennsylvania, commenced its session yester
day afternoon at 5 o'clock, iu St. Andrew's
church, Philadelphia. The chair was taken
by the Right Rev. Alonzo Potter, Bishop of
the diocese. George M. Wharton, Esq. was
unanimously elected secretary, and the Rev
Wm. H. Odenheimer, assistant secretary.
A" ?? now no longer u matter of doubt that the
new issue "Mtxico or no Mexico" is to be pressed
home upon the American people by the party in
power, it becomes a serious question?what is the
July of the whigs in such a crisis 1 The Whigs ot
the country have a more solemn duty to perform than
merely to express and act upon their individual opin
ions in relation to public questions. They owe it to
themselves and to their children, that they should
not only get the ascendency in the councils of the
Republic, but that they should keep it. Can this be
done without union of purpose and union of senti
ment ? Surely not. Can it be done by opposing
the popular sentiment upon any one subject of pub
ic policy ? Assuredly not. They must be content
to abide by what is obviously the opinion of the
msjority upon all vital quostions, if they expect to
obtain from the people the grant of their power to
them as trustees.
But why is it desirable that the Whigs should be
in power in the General Government 1 Obviously
to be able to carry into operation their principles of
public policy which they believe are interwoven with
the true glory and prosperity of the Republic. The
doctrines of (he party in power are believed by us
to be destructive to the Constitutional Government,
and our wish is, as good citizens, to drive that party
from power. But how is that to be done, is the ques
tion t Surely by uniting among ourselves and by
endeavo-ing to show the voters in the opposing party
that their true interests lie in abandoning their old
associations, and joining with us. 1
But there are measures upon which the public
mind will not be instructed, will not be dictated to.? |
Suppose the Whig party should proclaim that one of I
lu cardinal principles was, the dissolution of the!
Union?is there any one so blind as not to see that
overwhelming defeat in the elections would overtake
us ? And why 1 Because the American mind will
not tolerate the doctrine?no matter whether it be
right or wrong. Again, suppose we were to engraft
upon our creed?Restitution of all the lands acquired
from the Indians by those mockeries which disgrace
our Statute Book under the name of Treaties with
the Indians t Is there any man so silly as to sup
pose that we could prevail in the elections ?
Now, the acquisition of territory, the enlargement
of the bounds ot the Union is a pqlicy, that, in our
humble judgment, will always command the majori
ty of the' voices of the American people?right or
wrong. And why ? Because it is a national trait of
character, to offend which will alwaya be followed
by certain punishment. It would be as easy to era
dicate from the American heart the hatreJ of kingly
government, as to attempt to convince the American
mind that the acquisition of territory is not right,
not for our interest Right or wrong, the aequisi
sition of territory is alwaya holy in the eyes of the
American people?by which we mean, the large ma
jority o I them. It is flattering to our pride and to
our strength, while it opens new fields to our enter
prize. We are not approving this spirit of our
countrymen, but merely dealing with the fact as it ex
Well, the Whigs went into the laat Presidential
contest with thk most powerful and popular man of
the age as their candidate, but with opposition to the
acquisition of Texas inscribed upon their banners.
What was the consequence? They were beaten by
the party that went for Texas and all of Oregon,
with one of their weakest and most unknown men
as their candidate. It is not too much to say, that
it was the Texas question which defeated us in that
memorable contest.
In view of these considerations, therefore, and of
the evident design of the parly in power to force an
other territorial question upon the country, it be
comes the duty of the Whigs to decide, whether
they inscribe upon their banners at the next
Presidential election, ? No Mexico." 8hall we re
peat the experiment of 1842 ? If we were beaten
upon the question of the PEaCEFUIj annexation
of Texas by taking ground against it, will we stand
a better chance by going agnintt the WAR annexa
tion of Mexico? The very propounding of the
question will awaken distrust in the mind, we are
The question of the military occupation of Mexi
co, of the subjugation of that country, is not a ques
tion to be judged of by itself. It stands now, and
will hereafter stand connected with other questions,
deeply affecting the public interests. If Mr. Polk
could make a .war with Mexico necessary, he can
make its subjugation necessary?nay, he will try to
make it necessary. These thoughts are thrown out
at random for the consideration of the Whig paity
at large, and our brethren of the Whitf press. The
subject is worthy of the profoundest reflection. To
morrow we shall follow it up.
From Santa Fe. Yesterday, says the St. Louis
Republican of the 11th instant, Mr. Cuniffe arrived
in this city from Ssnta Fe. He left the latter place
on the 3d of April, and arrived at Independence in
twenty two days afterwards. At the time of his de
parture, no further news had been received from
Col. Doniphan, except that received by the express
which brought the account of the capture of Chihu
Col. Price, with about 450 troops, waa in Santa
Fe, the remainder of his command was scattered
through the country, some guarding the horses and
stock, and others garrisoning posts. The volunteers
were enjoying better health when he left than they
had previously done; still very few of the whole
number had escaped sickness.
The Fort at Santa Fe was not completed, and all
the public works were suspended. The civil Gov
ernment was progressing quietly under the Secretary
of Stale, acting as Governor. |
(& Mr. Consul Black thinks that the moderate
and ultra Federalists of Mexico, in whose ranks are
many men of property and many of the prie its, are
for the continuance of the war with a view to the
destruction of the Mexican Army and the ultimate
union of Mexico with the United Statea.
(?j? What were the Post Master General and a I
certain ex-consul to Bremen cogitating upon on

Cabinet scribblers to prepare the public mind for
plundering the Mexican Churches 1 It would seem
so from the Washington coiresj>ondence of the Bal

General on either aide of the "Swiss" we allude to,

somewhere of a sharp between two Jlats, or the

Chronicles of Jonathan.
Now, there was among all the counsellors of the
land of Jonathan, one Thomas, surnamod "the hum
bug." And the Bame was a mighty man by reason
of fatness?for he measured round about five cubits,
and his countenance was like unto brass, and his
voice as the roaring of the bulls of Bashan. And
the same went unto the King, saying?"Long live
the King, and may his enemies be scattered?may
Zachariah be as a'scarecrow in a garden of cucumbers'
and may the soup of Winfield, the chief captain be as
poison unto him. Hath my Lord,the King, considered
the feebleenes* of these men, and that they will not
prevail against the enemy by reason thereof 1 Then
the King answered and spake saying, "Whence
I comest thou 1" And he said "From walking up and
down among the counsellors of the land?from
Wick, the son of Wicked, from Jacob, the son ol
Thompson, and Brincker, the son of Hoff and Brock,
the son of Brocken, and Sawyer, surnamed the Sau
sage. Hath my Lord considered the counsel of those
bis servants ! Behold I, even I, will command the
armies of the land of Jonathan, and I will smite the
Mexicans and give their carcasses to the beasts of
the field, and the fowls of the air. Yea, I will pull
down their strong towers, leaving not so much as one
stone upon another. I, also, will destroy their cities
and put the people thereof to the sword. Behold, I
have read Humboldt and what I know, I will do,
and what I wil do, have I not written it down
And when Tuomas, surnamed the Humbug, had
spoken these things,'he showed unto the King the
plan thereof, as he had written it down?and he
stamped upon the ground,
and bia face shone with exceeding fierceness.
And when the King had read the writing, and
saw the countenance of Thomas, the humbug, that
it waa exceeding fierce, and heard his voice, like
unto the roaring of the bulls of Bashan, and saw that
he was a mighty man, by reason of fstness?behold
the King was moved unto admiration, and he lifted
up his voice and spake saying, "Yea shalt thou
command the armies of the land, in the place of Za
chariah, and in the place of Winfield, the Chief Cap
tain?for what are the countenances of Zachariah
and of Winfield, as compared with thy counte
nance 1 And it ahall come to pass when the Mexi
cans shall hear thy voice and see thy shape, they
ahall begin to say unto one another, os the coons
spake unto the mighty hunter of the West, saying,
? It is of no use, we give up, spare us yet one mo
ment and we will come down unto thee.'
And the King spake unto the counsellors of the
land of Jonathan, saying, "Make ye Thomas, ' the
humbug,' chief captain over the armiea, in the place
of Winfield and in the place of Zachariah." But
certain of the councilors refused to obey the com
mandment of the King?howbeit Wick, the son of
Wicked, and Brincker, the son of Hoff, and Jacob, ;
the son of Thompson, and Sawyer, the Sausage, and |
many others of the council aasented thereunto. And
when this was told unto the King and unto Marcy.
the scribe, and unto Thomas, the humbug, they
were exceeding wroth and rent their garments. And
the King comforted Thomas, the humbug, "Behold,
I will make thee second captain." But Thomas,
the humbug, answered, saying, "I will be second to
no man. Behold, Winfield hath his plan, and thy
servant hath hit plan, and it shall come to pass when
I go to the camp of Winfield, straightway there will
be confusion. Thy aervant hath read Humboldt, and
understandeth what he doeth." And Thomas, the
humbug, went from the presence of the King in an
ger; nevertheless, what was the plan of Thomas,
surnamed the humbug, no man knoweth unto this
