We return our warmest thanks to our New York friends for their advertising favors. Our readers must bear with us till we get through this welcome labor. THE RUMORED TREATY": We sincerely hope for the country's sake? for Mr. Polk's sake?that the rumored treaty of which an outline from the Republicano newspaper is given in another column, has no truth in it. We should feel humbled to the "dust, to know that so much precious blood has been spilled, so much treasure has been ex pended. so feartully and so flagrantly has the constitution been violated, to obtain a strip of territory which could have been purchased for a few trifling millions at any time. Better far> if there be any truth in this rumored treaty, that we had taken not a foot of Mexican land. In that event we should have retained our self approbation and made good what the Presi dent has so often proclaimed?that the war was not waged with a View to territorial conquest? With the line which Trist's asserted treaty gives us, we gain nothing, aud lose all?lose our national character for truth. But we are prepared for any thing from Mr. Polk's admin istration, however disgraceful to the country* From the beginning there never has been about any of its actions the least show of elevation of thought, of nobleness of purpose, of patriotic feeling. All, all, has been lUtle. And its little ness has been and is so little, that it begets con tempt and ridicule. Hence, while we hope for better things, we shall not be surprised if the Mexican war shall be brought to the ignp ble close, which rumor assigns it in the last ad vices from Puebla. Peace Rumors.?On the 26th ult. rumors which the Republicano calls "'very alarming" were in circu lation in the capital. It was said that the Mexican Government had acceded to the mediation of Eng land ; that the English Secretary of Legation had been down to Puebla and returned on the 24th; that the object of his visit was to negotiate with Genera' Scott a treaty of peace; that the terms agreed upon between them would be the surrender of the Califoi nians to the Americans, the recognition of the inde" pendence of Texas, and the acknowledgment of the line of 8Q degress as the northern boundary between the United 8tales and Mexico. This line would give Santa Fe and one third of New Mexico to the United States.?Mw Orleans Picauyne. Is it all Right??The Mexican population of this city, we aro crediby informed, has increased upwards of a thousand within the last eight days, "and the cry is, still they come." The new comers are repre sented as wounded and discharged Mexican soldiers in search of employment. Many officers have aUo said to have arrived, several of whom we have had pointed out to us. They are all honest and deserv. ing people, no doubt; but it will be well to keep an eye on them for all that? Matamoras Flag. The Signal Letter. The correction recently pub lished in the Signal, is a curious one. It appears that in the first publication of the letter, a very im portant word was left out: that word was "decided," before "approval of your editorial." The usual van ity of editors would, it seems to ua, have got that word into the first publication if all others had been left out?New Orleans National. The North American and U. 8. Gazette imagines that Mrs. Partington 'overflows with the milk of human kindness.' It may be she does, but it is ^ ?""" ""?* * No wonder she has as much as she can do to feed the overgrown calf of the Boston Post. GEN. TAYLOR'S POLITICAL OPINIONS. Although we have had sufficient evidence to satisfy us that General Taylor is essentially aod practically a Whig, we have no objection to adding to the mass of testimony upon that head, the following extract of a letter which has been banded to us by a friend. The letter is from an officer of the Virginia regiment, long known to us as a gentleman of character and intelligence, in whose judgment and ve racity we have entire confidence.?JS'orJolk Herald. " Camp mbar Bubwa Vista, "June 11, 1847. " I hope to be with you at the next election, and give ' a long pull, a strong pull, and \ pull all together' for Old Rough and Heady. I see by the Demociatic papers that they are trying to throw cold water on his nomination for President, and to doubt wheth er his political principles are of the Whig school. I have the satisfaction to know that he is a genuine Whig. This I have learned from his most intimate friends, and among others from his own brother; so that there can be no mistake in this matter. I also know, that he is the avowed candidate of nearly the whole army; and that he will go it in 1848 with a 4 perfect rush.' " As l.am now on politics, I will give you an idea of the state of parlies io our regiment: Of the 13 Captains, 9 ate Whigs; of the 39 Lieutenants, 28 are Whigs ; ihe Colonel and Major are Whigs; and the Lieutenant Colonel, although a Democrat, is an open advocate for ' Old Rough and Ready' for the next Presi dency. Two-thirds of the rank and file of the regiment are also Whigs. General Wool, who is now in command of our division, is a Whig, as also a large majority of the officers in the North Carolina and Mississippi regiments, and 1 am satisfied that if an election was tb take place in our camp to-day, on political grounds, that we could show you a ' Bethel,' if not an ' Old Trap' majority. " After this statement of facts, ! think you will agree with me that the Whigs have a cu rious way of affording ' aid and comfort to the enemy.' Santa Anna, I am certain, thinks so; and I am sure he would rather receive such aid and comlort as his friend James K. Polk afforded him, than any he has ever received from Taylor, Scott, Wool, &c." In this connection, we take the opportunity to introduce an extract of another letter, from a gallant and distinguished Kentuckian, who has " done the State some service" in the field and the forest, which has been some weeks in our possession. Speaking of General Taylor, he says? "He is a firm, self poised, clear, sensible, plftin, honest man?concurring with the Whig patty in all its prominent opinions?a Clay Whig; for he would prefer Mr. Clay as Presi dent to all other living men; and, next to him, Crittenden." Ocf- Some of the newspapers of the country are assailing the Washington National Whig, (which pronounced the Signal letter a forgery,) for the bad box it has got into by saying " the Signal letter is the offspring of some miserable, mean, lying fellow," 8tc. Our friend of the Whig certainly does seem in a tight place; but then, he may console himself with the reflec tion that his is not the only paper that has upon the came subject, reversed a very' sensi ble maxim, and " leaped" before it " looked." | Richmond Republican. We desire to thank our worthy brother for his* concern in our affairs, but we would re mind him, that, we did not leap before we look ed in the matter of the Signal letter. Already one of the strongest points taken by us has been substantiated, namely, that General Tay lor was not the author of that letter. It remains to be seen whether it was ever signed by Gen Taylor. On this point we shall wait to hear from the Old Hero himself. There has been no reliable evidence produced dny where of the gen uineness of the signature. Whig Meeting of the Fourth Congres sional District, La. A meeting of the Whigs of the Fourth Congres sional District was held at Alexandria, La., on the *th instant. ?. Heydenfelt, esq., in the Chair, J. J. Wells, esq, Vice President j. E. Archinard, esq., was appointed Secretary. After a number of ballotings Col. J. Gahhktt of the Pari h of Washita, was unanimously declared to be the nominee of the con vention. After which, the following spirited resolu tions were adopted: Resolved, That the Whigs of the Fourth Con gressional District highly approve of the distinguish" ed public services and military career of Genera Zachary Taylor, as exemplified in the fields of Palo Alto, Reseca de la Palma, the heights of Monterey, and Buena Vista. Resolved, That his indomitable courage in the field, his model alion in victory, unsullied integrity, his unbounded patriotism, his profound judgment, his great services, and the Republican simplicity of his character, clearly indicate him as The Man who, as the head of this great nation, can best guard and cherish the interests of the people of these United States. Resolved, That they view with indignation the base attempt which in the last Congress was made to censure that gallant Chief for bis conduct at Monte rey on which the vote of Isaac E. Morse urns cast against him. (tj* A Washington letter to the New York Her ald says that Judge McLean and Judge Burnet are both in favor of General Taylor for the next Presi dency.

We learn that the North American ia incorrect in calling Mr. Whittlesey the President of the Waah iogton National Monument Society in ihia city. ' The President of that Society ia, ex-officio, the Pre* of the United States, and its Vice President ia Col. Wm. Brent. Mr. Whittle ey haa been appointed General Collector, with authority to appoint sub agents, aod make colleetiona throughout the United States for the proposed Monument to Washington. He u to reside in thu> <<?ly? ?nd will have an office in the City Hall, where be will transact his business We understand that the Board of Managers of this Socicty are only waiting for a proper site to com mence the Monument, and ihia they exprct next session. The funda in hand now amount to near $59 000. A magnificent design has been adopted, and lithographed, and every thing is ready to make a commencement as soon as the site ia obtained. This, we learn, is a portion of the public mall near the river, and directly South of the President s House. Would it not be better for the New York Society to unite with the one in this city, aud crec a National Monument to the father of his count'y. as proposed by the Soc ety here, instead of a local one in New York? Why, we would ask, too, has not the President answered the interr gatory put to him by a correspondent of the National Intelligen cer a few daya ago ? or, does he wish the public to understand that he prefers Jackson to Washington' by granting to the Jackson Monument Committee, a right which he has refused to the Washington Monument 8ociety ? We trust that the people ol this country will not hesitate to manifest their grati tude by contributing liberally, and generoualy, to so laudable and patriotic an object, as the erection ol a great Monument to the memory of Washington, and that the efforts of the Collector in this noble under taking will be crowned with success. GEJ\: JOJYES JMYiTtHE fVAR OFFICE. Justice and Truth alike demand that we should again notice the pamphlet just published by General Walter Jones, laying open to the public contempt, the trickery' and duplicity of James K. Polk, the President of the party now in powr, and his sec retary, William L. Marcy, with regard to Charles Lee Jones, esq. Never did two men receive a more severe and better merited chastisement. As an ar ray of damning facts which spesk more loudly than words nothing can be more conclusive. The alter native presented is simply whether Mr. P. and Mr. xM. at first intended to bestow the command on Mr Jones and afterwards proved faithless to the strong est assurances, so far as actions can indicate inteu tions, or whether they willfully, maliciously and wickedly sanctioned the efforts of Mr. Jones and availed themselves of the fruits of them, without ever intending to confer upon him the distinction he so justly earned. For men professing to be gen tlemen either horn of the dilemma would appear to be sufficiently disgraceful. As for William L. Marcy, brough* up as he has .been, and nurtured in the Albany Regency School, and steeped to the lips in deceit, trickery and ve nality, there is, we confess, no extent of meanness of which we would net deem him most fully capa hie, but of Mr. Pelk as a man we had cxpected bet ter things. Of his good faith and intelligence our estimate has been sufficiently low for his most ardent contemners, but in this instance it aeems he has fal len even beneath himself, in making the money and time and influence of Mr. Jones and his friends sub servient to his purposes and then failing, entirely, 1 to comply with his portion of a contract to which his actions had made him as completely a party, " i if be had put his sign manual to a written bond.? His political elevation and religious msoeiatums ' forbade us to believe him capable of such barefaced > faithlessness, but we have been wrong and fiel ashamed of the charitableness which induced us to think so favorably of him. Of the acceptance of the appointment by Captaiu Hughes, under the circumstances, if indeed he we:e aware of them, which is hardly possible, we refrain to speak. "Honor is the soldier's gain," and we fear the harvest to be derived from such preferment is small indeed. Of this, however, the Captain's own sense of propriety and the opinion of his chi valrous companions in arms will furnish the best judgment. The Captaiu is, we believe, from Mr. Marcy's"State, New York, originally. Judge McLean.?The Liberty (Mo.) Tribune says: "With Taylor and McLean as Presi dent and Vice President, the people could sleep with safety. Firm in his opinion* yet tolerant, mild, yet determined ; an honest man, a christian, a statesman, and a patriot, he would do much to cool down that acerbity of political feeling which has so long ran wild ia our country. * No unnecessary wars would be commenced ; no tinkering with the currency! no " British tariffs." Every aid which the constitution authorizes, would be given to the improvement of lake, river, and " inland sea" navigation. Capable and honest men would fill all our public offices. More Troops.?The Illinois 8tate Register con *ains a copy of a letter from R. M. Young, Esq., dated at Washington city, June 30th, which states that the Secretary of War would immediately call into service Copt. Prentiss' and Capt. Stapps caval ry companies, which are to be sent at once to \ era Cruz, "to operate' against guerilla parties" in that neighborhood. Mr. Young also slates that the Sec retary of War had authorised Col. E. D. Baker "to raise, if the volunteers desired it, a batallion, to be composed of five companies of 'veteran volunteers, and made up exclusively of volunteers returned from Mexico." Cj* Mrs. Charles Greene Partington of the Bos ton Post has the following excellent saying: "Why don't they bring the whole of China here at once, instead of bringing it here in junks ! It wou'd be grand for new house-keepers, and I could replace my old ehaney teapot that was broke so long ago," and the old lady drummed the table in a reverie on the spread of commerce and its benefit to the world. (fjf Indiana is now a debt?paying State?having psid the interest on her debt on the 3d inst. - For the National Whig. Mr. Eoitor : We observe by a publie notice (hat the .gents of the Stale of Maryland, and the other agents and stockholders ol the Chesa. peake and Ohio Canal have made a complete change of the directors of that company. The State of Maryland, and the District of Colum bia, as well as aH the friends of that work .nay feel glad of the change, for had a board ofj business men been put in charge ol the work, when Maryland look it in charge, as a State ! work, it might nave been completed many years ago, lor less money than has been paid for it, and been in full navigable condition at this time, with an income of over a million of dollars a year. If any person shall doubt that fact, we refer them to the report made to the Board on that subject, and sworn to on the 22d of January, 1836. We hesitate not to say that if the person who made that report, and swore 10 it, had been removed at that time, the State orMaryland might now have been receiv ing from 7 to $800,000 a year from the canal, enough to have paid the interest on her State debt. And all the other stockholders 8 to 10 per cent, on their stock, and coal would have been selling in the District cities at $3 25 cents a ton. OBSEKVER. I The Diu Dock.?Attorney General Clifford has given an opinion that the Navy Depart ment is uot authorized, under the act making a partial appropriation for a floaliog dock at this port, to contract for its construction. Ihe subject will therefore lay over until further ac I tiou ol Congi683.? JVor/ft JltncricaH Gaztlle. In olden times the Executive executed the laws of Congress. Now a-days, the Executive sits in judgment upon them, and decides whe ther they shall be executed.
