For President, ZACHARY TAYLOR, OF LOUISIANA, Subject tu ih# decision of (bo Whi# National i Convention. TO THE PUBLIC. , III few day* we shall bavo the pleasuie of tending out tbe NATIONAL WHIG in an entire new dreea. The reading matter will be in a beautiful light face minion type, and tbe adrertieemenle in an equally elegant nun-pareil. Tbe prees upon which we eball work Iho National Whig ia one of A. B. Taylor's well-tried, double cylinder patent air-spring presses, capable of throwing off 6000 aheeta an hour, when driven by ateam, an oure will be. Tbe ateam engine ettached ia not much larger than a Iwnd-box, and will, with the preea, attract no ordinary attention. We have taken the large and commodious rooma over Bihmb and Sun's Wine Store on the aouth aide of Pennsylvania Avenue, between 3d and 4 J streets and opposite Jackson Hall. Tbe second story will be occupied by the Office of tbe National Whig and by a Free Reading Room; the third story by our printing establishment; the fourth as a job printing office; and the Ana rooms in tbe back building as Editorial Rooms. Altogether, this location is one of ths most desirable locations in the city, and the facilities which it affords for the publication business are not to be excelled/ Advertisers who desire to have standing adverments inserted in the NATIONAL WHIG are requested to bring them in as early as possible, in order that they may have the advantage of appearing in Km Aral iealla r,f tlta nam nana* A II ell... .,l..?s: ' ...... ... -. V... U.UV. O'l.ClllKIII will ?|60 send in (heir favors without delay. We I shall isiue of the first number 6000 copies which ' will be circulated in tha city ol Washington and in Georgetown. Peace ??The editors of the Spanish paper La Patria, at New Orleans, in their paper ol ' the 9th instant, assert that they have advices from Mexico, assuring them that a treaty of 1 ' peace had been tinned by the Commutioners! We do not believe the editors of La Patria. 1 Eureka.? We have this publication. It requests us to notice it. We do so, and re quest that it will notice the National Whig in i return, and give us credit for the List ol Patenth which it takes from us, and which we i publish every week, with account of claims, I See. It is an official list, prepared expressly i for the National Whig, at the Patent Office. The Eureka is a capital journal. It is admirably printed, and does the proprietors great credit. We shall refer io it more particularly. Yankee Doodle.?The last Yankee " goes it" strong on the tragic. The plate of the child-murderess (Madam Restell) riding in a coach and four, and of the victim of seduction and Reslell's infamous art going to prison, is a just picture of New York Bociety. The department of fun is by no means well administered, now a days. We hav'nt laughed at anything in Yankee since the caricature of Mr. Benton and Mr. Polk making politicocelestial discoveries, made its appearance.? Brush up, Yankee. Do get more funny, or your readers will die of ennui. 0^ The Vera Crux people were divided in their opinions about tbo prospect ol a peace, The na tivee did not believe that there would be any, while uio UJVBUoiB mciineu mc omrr way. ?EJ" A report ?n nt Vora Crur on the Dint ult. that the National Bridgo had been destroyed and that 1300 men, were waiting thore .for tho next train. (TT* When our army reached Tacubaya, the arid Texan priaonara, who were with it, stood near a monument, which had been erected to Santa Ana in honor of hie having built the fine road from the Capital to Tacubaya by the hands and labor of 1 the caid Texan prisoners, and in the twinkling of an eyo, the monnment was scattered to the four of heaven, for the stones of it were literally 1 Wusihed to atoms ! Wo' ! >?5" Of Captain Walker is as terriblo to the na- | t*0es about Vera Ciuz as Jaraula used to be to our ( people.. He is a perfect Fra Diavolo in thepromp- | titude with which he moves and tho certainty of his ptmishmente. The whole of the Picayune and Delta corrcspon- ' dence from Mexico was transmitted from Baltimore to New York at an oxpense of not leas than $600. "What has become of the prophet of the N. I , York Courier and Enquirer, the Spy in Wash- j inglon, Jr. 7 He predicted for weeks past that I there would be no battleB at Mexico?that peace < would surely follow without further fighting, i The spirit of prophecy certainly did not rest i upon his shoulders. The Government paper at Mexico gives a , clear and candid account of Coutreras and San Pablo. It attributes the defeat of the Mvxicam to the refusal of Valencia to obey Santa Ana's i orders. This after thought can't do away with the fact of the immense physical and scientific superiority of the Americans over the Mexicans. In this lies the secret of our victories. A letter from an English house in Mexico slates, that Gen, Scott was satisfied that the i Mexican authorities did all they could to sup < press (lie violence, committed in violation of the armistice, upon (lie train of 130 wagons , which visited the city to get provisions. The poor wagoners who were stoned and insulted differed however with the General. The wires will be ready for pulsation between Washington and Charleston by the 1st of De? cember and about the catno time between this place and New Orleans. Then, farewell to J. i C. Riddle U Co.'a Expresi. The good people of Richmond have of late 1 I been in a state of great excitement about the route the Louiaa Railroad shall take westward- j |y. Public sentiment seems to incline in favor of the southern route. We should be pleased if the Richmond Whig or Republicin will ' give a clear statement of the two routes and ' the progress of the controversy. dj* The New York Herald of yeeterdsy has a 1 list of 700 persona arrived at the principal hotels on ' the Ifitb instant in that city. 1 L ?linn nirin11 mi? """ EIGHT DAYS LATER FROM EUROPE. The Ereoeh steamer Union arrived at New (i York yesterday bringing; eight daya later news 1 from Europe. She left Cherboug the 31st of c August. 11 The English Corn Market experienced a * great fall on the 23d of August, which was 0 followed by tho failure of Robinson St Co., the 'J chief of which house was the Governor of the 15 Bank of England. ' On the 27th ult. another house went by the T; hoard for nearly a million of dollars. * The Bank of England was about to reduce ^ the rale of interest on loans to five per cent, and '' the market was easier. The Union is detained in quarantine having * small pox on board. *' The Hibernia on the last trip ran from Hali- 1 fax to Liverpool in nine days. ^ The American Government has ordered thai b( British letters passing through the U. .States to p Uanaua snail pay a hall penny postage. ta Moera Kampah has been made a free port c( an the East coast of Sumatra. A The Iiish on thn west coast of Ireland hnve rj made several attempts to capture corn laden b vessels. ? The Duke of Prnslin killed his wife on the ;t I8lh ult. and then killed himself. A Governess ,, in the family with whom the duke was too in- ,j, timate was the cause ol the murder. ol The Austrian Government was filling the b< States of the Chuych with troops. It is plain it that the civil government of the Pope will p\ fall. The hostility of the Chinese agatust the g English continues. . The Great Britain steamship is to be left to #j her fate. w Galhcia is in a state of great inquietude, ^ owing to the feeling in favor of the Poles. ^ Hanover, Oldenburg, and Denmark, have been " swapping" territory. Ab del-khader has sued to the Q,ueen ol '' France for peace. , Mr. Ousely, late Minister to Buenos Ayres, 1^ lias returned to England. Princess Juinville's little daughter is named S' Louis Phillippe Marie. ' , - o OO-The Charleston Courier thinks that Gen- It Scott ought to insist on one stipulation in the 11 rreaty ot Peace, if oue should be made, and '< that is?the occupation of the city of Mexico it by our troops, if it were only for oue day. The ft floating of the American flag over the Halls of b [lie Moutezumas, it regards as abosolutely necessary to complete the moral force of our triumphs over the euemy. If to humble and con ijuer the Mexicans were the object of the war, this would be all very proper, but as peace is our professed object, it would be unworthy of us to insist on so humiliating a condition, if peace can be got without it. A few of the Whigs of Lorain county, Ohio, whose abolition sentiments predominate over all their party predilections, recently met and denounced General Taylor as a candidate for the Presidency, for four reasons: 1. Because he is the hero of the Mexican war; 2. Because he is not a Whig3. Because he is a slaveholder; and, 4. Because, if elected, he will go for the extension of negro slavery. They then declared for Mr. Corwin as their choice for President. Now could not the Whiirii nf l.nrain Imvo nrnd.im.il tli.ir nr.. fcrence for Mr. Corwin without vilifying GenTaylor? II' he in the choice of the Whig National Convention, what will the Whigs ol Lorain do? The Spanish Ambassador in Mexico has been recalled, because he look part in tht I'aredes intrigues to establish a monarchy in that country?the Queen of Spain having disavowed his nets. He embarked at Vera Cruz on the 31st ultimo, for Spain. _ it Gj" Our ultra "No more territory" and "Wilmol e Proviso if more Territory" frionda down East arc lt planning the storm for their deleat in Mains !

If we remember aright, Mr. bi Morse went to the polls on the question of "No tr More Territory." Thus it will be seen that this 81 question is not even a Whig policy in his djj- ai irict, much less in all the rest of the Union be- p; sides. i" . - li The Ireirs of Mr. Holden, one of the late cl owners of the Saturday Courier, are to receive from the estate of the Courier (its good will) thirty thousand dollars.

Wo h i man who can rise superior to all euch infln- ni nd auch a man we certainly jiosbcsx in Gene Schary Taylor. The deeda of General Taylor, performed utir te moat try ug circuiuatancca, clearly ahow him ? auch a man. When hia little army waa aurrour I by fearful odda, and ita entire deal ruction seem I be ine liable, every American heart sunk at t mteinplatiou of tho awful criaia except A/a ou-n. .nd when, through incredible deeds of > alor, vL ' waa made to perch upon out alandard, eve rain was intoxicated with the glory our amis h ihieved, except that of the great hero under wbt was won. It ia not fur the brilliancy of hia mi try achievements, but for thia intrinsic moral gra ,'Ur of the man, that we wish to see him Preside r the United Stales. It is, we earnestly hope a ilieve, reserved for hie mighty ana, to bring ba te political affairs of the country to the immacoli tirity of the days of Washington.

One of (lie highest merits of Gen. Taylor tat every action of his carries on its face t viilence of its strict fidelity and honesty. io often happens that a man is seduced is zeal for his own self glory, into exlrav ant action, which, however nearly it may s roach the chivalrous and knightly, does n ear the semblance of houesly and truth alio , and therefore lacks in the great essentit hich go to make up a great and powerl lind, Such a man is not Gen.
