WILLARD WALKER, Dealer in Stoves, Ships’ Ca bouses, Fire-Frames, Lead Pipe, Tin, Copper and Hollow Ware, ,1134 Broad Street Bath, Ms; The Editor of the Boston Atlas, writing from Washington, says : “ A great interest is felt here to see what course the House will take, in relation to the refusal of the President to communicate to Congress and the country the whole of the correspondence which led to the return of Santa Anna to Mexico, and the instructions given to John Slidell, when he was sent Min ister to Mexico. There are certain facts in re lation to this matter w hich honorable mem bers here believe—it is by many believed, and there are good grounds for the belief, that Sli dell was instructed to demand of Mexico a considerable portion of California, and to de mand the Rio Grande as the western bounda ry of Texas; and it is believed that Santa An na had agreed, when in Cuba, that he would, if again in power, accede to our demands, whatever they might be—and as an equivalent, we were to give up our claims against Mexico, and in addition, as a douceur to himself, we were to give him three millions of dollars.— As part, therefore, of the scheme, Slidell was instructed to threaten the Mexican govcrn meut, in the event of its refusal to accede to our demands, with a return of Santa Anna from banishment—and as a part of the plan, to coerce the Mexican government, our ships of war were ordered to cruise in the Gulf, and the army under Gen. Taylor to advance to the Rio Grande. It so happened that Mr. Slidell was not received—consequently the purport of his instruction is not known. He returned home, the army was marched to the Rio Grande, the American fleet was in the Gulf, and on the very day, the 13th of May, that the war bill passed Congress, a letter was sent by order of the President, from the Navy De partment, to pass Santa Anna and suite (com posed of upwards of 40 Mexican officers) into Mexico. It is to get the whole of this ini quity before the country, that the House pas sed the order—and it is the purpose of the President to prevent this by plumply refusing to respond to the call of the representatives of tbe people.” Queretaro. Seventeen Deputies wereatQueretnro, ready for the assembling of the new Congress. The Monitor publishes a list of those who were present at a preliminary meeting. The revo lutionists are brought to a stand, public opin ion being too strong for them. Many of the chiefs had given in their adhesion to the gov ernment and avowed their determination to aid it to the best of their means and ability. They think it the best and surest course to leave the General Government and State at liberty to form their own opinions in regard to peace or war—thus submitting to the exigen cies of the time and the will of the majority. The Monitor’s correspondent thinks the mem bers of the new Congress will readily and effi ciently work together, inasmuch as they will cast aside everything like the gratification of personal interests or unworthy prejudices.— We really hope that such may be the case. We have noticed many of the liberated pris oners asking alms in the street, with their cer tificates in their hands. Whether worthy ob jects of charity or not we are not advised.— Being able bodied men, however, who have fared well since their confinement, those who are industrious can no doubt find employ ment, and thus support themselves and their families. Lower California.—Advices from Mazat lan have been received to the 30th ult. The guerrillas, under Mijarez, made an attack upon the Cape (Lower California) and were com pletely routed—Mijarez and many other Mex icans being killed. La Paz, further north in the Peninsula, was also the scene of a san guinary conflict between the guerillas, under Capt. Pineda, and the Americans. The place was reduced to ashes by the fire that took place between the combatants. The Mexicans were finally compelled to retire. There are rumors of other engagements, but nothing to be relied on.—American Star, Dec. 2d. Col. Belknap, who lately returned from Mexico where he distinguished himself in the various battles that have been fought there, is just ordered back to serve on tbe Court of Inquiry ordered to assemble at Perote, to in vestigate the charges against Gen. Pillow, and Lt. Col Duncan.—l'hila. J’mnisyIranian Jan. 21. The War va. the Business of the Coun try. We are now realizing, to a painful extent, the mischievous effects ujjon business of the Mexican war—effects which we predicted with confidence almost at the commencement of this journal, and at a time when scarcely any of the commercial papers had bestowed a thought upon this view ot the subject. We know, indeed, that not a few business men re fused to believe that there was any ground for apprehension, but rather rejoiced in the opin ion that trade would be quickened by the op eration of the war, inasmuch as it would open new fields for commercial enterprize, and in crease the demand for our manufactures. The Whig journals opposed the war on political grounds, but seldom for the reason that it would check and embarrass home industry and enterprize. Meanwhile, this grand cause of mischief to all the interests of business has continued, like a huge constrictor, to wind its deadly folds around us, getting us completely within its power ; and now the fearful pres sure grows more and more painful, seffoeating and crushing, and a thousand voices cry out at once, in recognition of the deadly embrace. The activity of business which war was to produce has not taken place; the contribu tions in Mexico which were to sustain the war have not been realized— but nearly every dol lar of its cost has been withdrawn from the capital employed and needed in the legitimate business of the country ; thus creating confu sion, contraction by the banks, and general apprehension in the mercantile community.— In short, from being in a highly flourishing condition in all branches of trade and busi ness, with an indefinite prospect of general prosperity, everything has been brought to a sudden stand j a feeling of anxious apprehen sion prevails ; enterprizes of great importance are arrested or embarrassed ; contracts in ship and railroad building are given up, and the vast indebtedness of the country for merchan dize purchased is wantonly placed in great jeopardy. It is not possible to doubt that all this change results from the operation of a single cause, the war with Mexico—a war commenced by politicians for political ends, without the least regard to, or concern for, the prosperity of American industry and trade.— Mercantile Times. Venezuela. As we intimated yesterday, the veiVal re ports of a revolution in Venezuela prove to be incorrect. Our correspondent at Porto Cabel lo is silent on the subject, although he gives us mercantile intelligence. The same gentle man, however, -writing to a friend in this city, under date of Dec. 25th, represents the excite ment among the politicians as very great, but says there were hopes of an accommodation The quarrel relates to the administration of President Jose Tadeo Monagas, who was elect ed by one party, and makes his appointments from the other. [His administration com menced on the 20th of Jan. last, and should continue four years.] No revolution had tak en place, says the correspondent, nor was any apprehended. Another gentleman here, a merchant, has letters from his correspondents in Veneauela, but they make no mention of a revolution.— The report, in that shape, is evidently untrue. One of the letters says: “Every portion of the country is quiet; the authorities are obey ed." Gen. Paez was at Porto Cabello a few t’a a before the Greek sailed, and remarked that there were no grounds for impeaching the President, whatever. The influence of Gen. Paez is great, and being exerted, as it will be, in favor of the administration, will go far to sustain it.—Journal of Comment. Gen. Harrison’s Carriage. The Frankfort (Ky.) Commonwealth con tains an advertisement, offering for sale the splendid family carriage of thelamented Gen. Harrison. It was presented to Gen. H. by the young men of Baltimore. The original cost w-as $2500, and it is now very nearly as good as wrhen new, though it will be sold for greatly less than cost. The circumstances of the family of the lamented hero are not such as will permit them to keep it; and they have advertised, in the hope that they may find in Kentucky, among their tried friends, a purcha ' ser.—Atlas.
