Mr. Otero's views.?The papers in the
city of Mexico are publishing a long com munication by Senor Otero, a distinguished member of Congress, upon the. late negotia > tions of the house ol Alfaro. We received a translation of it in pamphlet form two 01 three weeks since, but its great length pre vented us from using it. Senor Otero maintains that the only thing really in dispute be t.veen the two Governments is the question of Texas- anrl that all negotiations should b( confined to a solution of that single affair. He invokes the aid of public opinion to induce Congress immediately upon assembling to declare that the Government shall ente into no treaty o! peace with the United States under any circumstances by which ? national territory other than Texas shall be alienated. He condemns the conduct of the late Mexican commissioners in assenting U anv arrangement whatever as to California and demands that the hands of the Government shall he at once tied up absolutely, si as to render a legal peace at the expense o! any territory save Texas absolutely impossi ble. The paper, the purport of which we can only thus hint at, is written with considerable force and with an insight into the politics and policy of the United StateB which is unusual with a Mexican.?AT. O. Pic. . More of the Praslin Affair.?Paris. Oct. 16.?M. de Praslin, a long while before the execution, meditated the murder ol his wife. The guilty duke is said to have made several attempts, before the fatal day. which have now been brought !o light by. the judicial investigations. Report speak.' of a heavy top to the curtain frame of a bed so fixed as to be kept up only by a singh thread, and the fall of which was to crusl the duchess. At anothertime, when she was walking in the park of Vaux, two pistols were discharged and two bullets whist ed by her ears. Other similar acts are spol en of, rnnnprtoH with this lnnrr pvtpn^prl trno-prlv & aa ? v. .. J all the accidents that ever befel the duchess in her whole life are now attributed to sorat dead!)* intent. Before he proceeded to murder it is said the duke tried to induce his wife to commit suicide After those Ion; scenes, which continued several years, tin duchess, a prey to a violent emotion, wouh find, as by enchantment, a small box ready for her, 'with arsenic and detections- for it.use. In spite of her despair, the duches* was able to resist all these invitations, which were from time to time renewed. Eacl time that she had cause fur a renewal of he> grief, each time that her husband inflictec upon her those moral tortures, the poisoi. was forthcoming. It was found in all the duchess's furniture.?Boston Atlas. DilBeultle* in Mexico* In conversing wiih various officers who arrived in the Alabama, we have found, without one exception, tint all of them consider the idea of peace as perfectly preposterous, and the details we have received from thetn, as to the e.ate and prospects of affaire in Mexico, only seem to tender more difficult the solution of the problem as to what it is, or what ought to be done with Mexico. A large portion of the better part of the population, dread the withdrawal of the American army, for fear that it would be followed by Bcenes of anarchy and lawlessness, as the country is literally without a government, and yet, whilst such are the sentiments ol trie eober minded and thinking portion, the great bulk of the pe jple retain feelings of .'the most bitter rancor and hostility towards us, and would wreak their vengeance upon all those of their own nation, who are supposed in any way to favor the Americans, so soon as an opportunity offered for so doing. Another dread that exists in Mexico, is, that this guerrilla system will result in a permanent and generul organization of regular banditti throughout the country, which will be kept up long after the difficulties with the United States may be settled, and which it will be impossible to eradicate. It was the same in Spain, where the guerrilla bands were not put down for years after the French were expelled, and only by most vigorous and energetic measures, such as no government in Mexico, will have it in their power to employ. The column that had gone forward, under Mujor General Putterson, and the one preparing to start undefr Major General Butler, would furnish a force sufficient to place adequate garrisons on the road, and at the same time, afford such reinforcements to Gen. Scott, as to enable him, if he thought advisable, to push detachments out to occupy some of the larger towns beyond and around the city. It was in contemplation, so soon as their was force sufficient for the purpose, to establish a line of posts, so as to enclose a largo portion of the mining district, near the city, and to encourage the working of the mines, which had been greatly interfered with, by the state of the country.?New Orleans Bulletin.

It may be unpleasant to leant that the whole country Is wis. -nuugh to dislike war, when one has been far cnougl tiehind the age to commence it; it may be unsatisfactory to find that men out of office can scan publh measures and Indlcute public policy better that those whose business It wus to do both; but unpleasant or unsatisfactory as these things may be, the) will appear in the Message. It Is not ltnprobabla-that much glorification ma) be made of past, present and future attempts to tnakt peace. Peace la popular, is wished for and prayec lor, not only because It is right, but because U is convenient uqd profitable. For this reason, great thlngt will probably be expected from tho peace passages 0 the President's manifesto. He will sink the fact that he commenced the war, und cover It ovet b) the statement that he hopes to conclude it. He wlii undertake to bring Congress and the country to glvi him and his party credit for putting a stop to thai which should never have been begun, while even he is ignorant of the modes and mouns of stopping it. The message cunnot fail however to take some notice, directly, or indirectly, to the point recently taker, by Mr. Clay, ou the subject of the control which Congress has over the war. Congress is the war making power. It may declare before war commences, cr after It has commenced, what the war is. fur. 1 Congress now chooses to dictate to Mr. Polk for what lie shall light, and on what terms, he must mnke pence, lie muet eubmit to its commands. Hi has shown that ho can make a war without the instruction or consent of Congress, he can now be told that this gives him no right to continue such a war. We cannot now prejudge the action of Congrcst in this matter, but it is easy to see, that the messagi must recognise this idea, and that the President jwill feel it necessary to advance some projoct, or givt some excuse, for the continuance of the war, to thosi who have the right to say to him, and who probabi) will say:?"Thus far ahull thou go and no farther."

These attacks hava been mostly tjictatd by a desire, on the part of those who made them, o exalt a single Individual in the army high above the flight of his military capacities?a desire whicl issumed the quality of fanaticism In intensity and fa tuity in folly. It is with the profoundest s&tisfactio: that we remarked the close coincidence between th. official despatches of Gen.

Occupying this position we may wc defy the defamers of Ids reputation, whether they b. p arty hacks this side tho Rio Grande or General Pil low's amenuenBes on the other.

And forwhafi Because Mr. Kendall did not see fit to applaud Gen Pillow for the capture of Contreras, and thus deprive Gen. .Smith of the credit of that brilliant achievement for the benefit of an officor who was as innocent of any participation in it as Mr. Kitchio war himself. So nil this crimination comes of Mr. Kendall's refusal to endorse the fabrications of " Loonidas," whose drafts upon the gullibility of the public would drain the exchequer of the father of lies.

Subject to the deciaton of the Whlf National Convention tl The question, whether there shall be a " convention for the purpose of selecting Whig 11 candidates for President and Vice President, is agitating the press in every direction. On j( the affirmative side of the question, we republish to-day the subjoined well-considered article, from4 the Louisville Journal. Fot our own part, we'have but one opinion upqp u the. subject, and that is, that a convention n is necessary to harmonize any conflicting 1 views of the party and ensure concert of ac- ll tion, at least in reference to the Vice Presi- (| dency, if not in relation to the Presidency; We believe that General Taylor will be the ti choice of the convention, meet when and ii where it may, but even in that event, it is due to those Whigs, who mt>y prefer some other candidate, that their consent shall be obtained in advance, and.after a full and fair hparinor TIia WKiYr friAnrla nl* fh*? n\A Thtm derer of Buena Vistji?of whom we are one j ?will go into convention determined to ad- I vise ana consult for the common success, and ' if, contrary to .our expectations, our prefer- 1 ance should be overruled, we shall buckle j on our armor and do battle will all our might for the nominee, be he who he may. j "We were, some months ago, Impressed with a ] confident bellof that 110 necessity would exist for ? I National Convention. We then thought that the I pliant and horolc Taylor, by common consent, and to a great extent by the concurrence of both partlee, would be proclaimed 1I10 candidate for'.tho next Pre- < ildency. We have elowly and reluctantly arrived at he concluelon, a concluaion In which wo think wi 1 tannot be miataken, of the necessity of a Nations Convention. The enthusiastic manifestations in fa /or of Gen. Taylor as a candidate for the Preslden y have not pervaded (he Union as we expected they vould do and aa thoy at one time seemed certain t. lo. Many Whig States have declared themselves it. avor of a national convention, and some havo actu dly proceeded to the appointment of delegates to it Jnder thess circumstances, what ought to be done . (f two or three or four States, declining to be ropreisntod in a national convention, were to nominal lectors pledged exclusively to vote for Gen. Taylui vhether nominated by a national convention or nor, t is man f at that the most injurious and perhaps disastrous consequences might be the result. Shoub he States meeting in convention nominate a differ :nt person, as they would be very certain to do i the Suites in favor of Gen. Taylor were to refuse t ;o into convention, we should have two Whig Rich nonds in the held, and, in such a stateof discord an llvision, defeat would be inevitable. No one cat low doubt that the Locofocos will have their nionul convention, that they will have their cand. late, and that he will not be Gen. Taylor. Concei in their side begets the necessity of concert 01 iurs. Conventions, it is true, are not free from al i ijcctions. Nor were Congressional caucuses whe. o9. There is no danger, in the face of this b fact, of a Whig being elected (o the U. S. b Senate from that State this time ! Or Ea-Presl lent Tyler recently came to this city J and staid all night, yet none of our eitlsens would rr have known of his being here but for the publication h of tho list of arrivals at the hotels In the newspapers. , Wo are told that he was neither called on nor taken ~ hy tho hand by a solitary Individual In the city.

Still It is evident, that, where thor a diversity of opinion as to the selection of a candilate for the Presidency, some mode must be adoptet o collect, combine, reconcile, and hurmonize publit lentiment. And if dne party resort to such a pro KIM, end thsitthA iMfeleoi it, the disciplined part) will be sure to prove victorious. When two or thret jtates only have thought of dispensing with a nutonal convention whilst the great majority of the itates favor it, we think that a respectful deferenc, o thorn, a proper spirit of conciliation and harmony, and the final triumph of a glorious cause enjoin ipon the diasenling States to yield to the wishes o. the majority. Otherwise they might be regarded as rbstinate, as seeking to dictate to their sister States >r seeking to practice a sort of nullification In a new ind exceptionable form. Such a course does not become patriotic Kentucky, nor Is it in conformity with the high respect which she has ever cherished and manifested for the other States of the Union. We feci the necessity of a Slato convention to reconcile jarring opinions and preferences ns to tho Chiof Magistracy'of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, and the same state of things and the stmte necessity prevail is to the Chief Magistracy of tho Union. We believe that a large portion of the Whigs of this State concnr with us in opinion that the agency of a national convention is indispensable to success. " If we arc not mistaken as to public sentiment, . we hope that measuros will be adopted in due season to secure a just representation of Kentucky in the nutlonal convention. In thus making a call which we consider ns dictated and demanded by the interests, the feelings, and the wishes of the Whig party of the nation, we do not abate ono jot of our enthusiasm for the glorious old hero of Buena Vista. | Vo one can make a tour through tho Middle and , Rustern States, or etfon read tho public journals of those States, without being convinced that General Taylor cannot be elected to the Presidency without ( the nominntion of- n national convention, but we , bavo no doubt, that, with such a nomination, ho can ] be elected triumphantly and by an overwhelming ( majority. We should have felt much gratified if the , unanimity of the Whig sentiment of the nation could , have superseded the necessity of a convention, but it has not done so, and now, if we would succeed, we have but to do as wo have done in times past. As true friends of Gen. Taylor, we feel bound not only j to go for a national convention but to go for tho ap- , lointmcni of delegates to it from the States friendly ] to him, if he run for the Presidency without the nomination of a convention, he will fail to be elected, and, If the Suites in which he is most popular reuse to go Into the convention, he will fail to roccive ( the nomination."' f fiCJ- The Little Georgian, published at J Forsyth, Georgia, denounces the remarks we made some days ago, to the effect, that the <1 American was the greatest land-robber on J the face of the earth, &c., &c.
