Delta of the 16th inst., that the Mexican Congress at Que retaro bad dispersed without acting on the Treaty; and it was universally admitted by all classes, Mexicans and Americans, that there would be no peace, - but that the Americans would hare to occupy the whole country, or to retire from it ' entirely. This ' intelligence was brought to New Orleans by Capt. Decker, of schooner Velasco, who left Vera Crux on the 8th inst. Capt. D. says the report was gen- ' trail r belie red there when the Velasco left. The Free American, published at Vera Cruz, peaks indignantly of the conduct of the Mex ican authorities, who, it isjstated, are doing all they cau to humiliate the American citizens in Vera Cruz, and calls on the Governor to in vestigate the matter, and see that justice is done. It seems that since the commencement of the Armistice, the Mexican authorities hare resorted to all sorts of petty annoyances, and, as far as they dare, hare done erery thing they -could to gratify their revengeful feelings. CQrCusMus M. Clay publishes a letter in .the Louisville Courier of Friday, in which he is rather tertre on Mr. Prentice, of the Journal, and also on Senator Borland, of Arkansas. Cassius says Borland is a coward, a man of no honor, and dirers other hard things, and utter ly denies that he begged his life of Mexicans. This, no doubt, will lead to "pistols and coffee for two." Prentice promises to take Cassius in hand when he has nothing else pressing up on his time. He says he must "attend to tK sane people first and may look to the crazy ones afterwards." Cassius may therefore look to hare his hide on the fence. But aint it a little cruel to keen the poor fellow in sus pence? If it was our casj we had rather hare the whip ping orer and done with it. . Methodist Book Costers. The Pittsburg Gazette, in its report of the fourth days's pro ceedings of the Methodist General Conference, now aittinz in that city eivesan abstract of the Report made of the business of the Metho dist Book Concern. This shows a great dimi nution in the sales of the publications of that concern' since the report pf 1814. And this decreased sale of books has been attended by a reduction in the circulation of Methodist pa pers and periodicals. For example The Christian Advocate and Journal prints in 1818, 19,000 copies against 25,000 in 1814; and the Quarterly review, one of the ablest of Maga zines, 2,100 against 31 ,000 copies. The Sun day School Advocate, on the other hand, shows a gratifying increase, printing 80,000 against 40,000. It may be tnat tnis decrease in tne circuia tion of Methodist journals is only an apparent one the falling off " of the old works, being made up or more by an increase of local papers in different parts of the country.

The National Intelligencer aaya that India rub ber is now proposed to insulate telegraphic wires. Gutta Percha has been tried in the Pasaic rirer with so much success that the company propose to make an effort to cross from Jersey City to New York by laying insu lated wires under water. Mr. Wilson of the Trenton telegraph office, has suggested to the company, according to the Gazette the experi ment of insulating their whole line with gutta percha, and burying it six inches in the ground instead of supporting i t, as now, u pon poles. At present the great exposure of the wires sub jects them to innumerable aid constant inter ruptions. The Louisville Journal does not believe that this plan of laying the telegraphic wirea under ground can er succeed, and supposes that a wire between that city and Nashville were bu ried under ground, and then supposes that some rascal, either in mere wantonness or from a desire to promote the interest of a rival line were to sever the wire at some particular point and cover the spot so as to exhibit no trace o the depredation how could the break be dis covered?.

' Interesting; Intelligence . v EUROPE IN COMMOTION. We copy from the Baltimore American, of Monday last,' the following additional details of the news brought by the steamship Cambria, which arrived at New York on Saturday even ing last, having sailed from Liverpool on the 29th ult.: ' Ä letter from Lord Shrewsbury 'states that the Pope, on receiving the Envoy from the United States accredited to Rome, said: "1 shall be extremely happy to enter into a treaty with so great a nation, especially with one in which the Church has nothing to fear from the government, nor the government from the Church." Politic! affairs on the Continent continue in about tne same disordered state. , Commercial matten appear to be generally the same, although there seems to be a gradual improvement, notwithstanding the feverish state of affaire throughout Europe, and the po litical agitation in Great Britain and Ireland. At Altona, on the 24th of April, intelligence was received of the taking of the town of Schleswig by the troops of the Confederation, after an engagement which lasted from 3 o' clock in the afternoon of Easter Sunday, until 11 o'clock the next morning. The fortifica tion on which the Danish artillery waa placed was taken by the Prussians at the point of the bayonet. After the batteries had been silenced by the field-pieces of the Hanoverians, Schles wig fell Into the hands of the army of the Con federation. The conflict is said to have been a very bloody one, the Danes having a strong position, and doing great execution with their artillery and nnemen. The Danes had from ten to twelve thousand men in the engagement. The force of the Con federation waa still greater, but thev were not all engaged. The loss of the Prussians, aa far as can be gathered from authentic accounts. waa about 3000 men, killed and wounded. The loss of the Danes is not known, but. from the fact of their having fought comparatively under cover, it is supposr d to be small. The Schleswig territory has been the scene of another conflict. The bands of Prussian and other volunteers which crossed the river, came into collision with the Danes between Keil and Ekenfardo. in the woods of Schnell marker, on the morning of the 21st. and after a battle which lasted, fire hours, the Prussians were driven back with a loss of 20 killed and 50 wounded. The extern of the Danish loss was not correctly ascertained. The Danish gorernment hare exercised their rights as belieerents, and bar laid an embareo on au rrussian, Mecklenburg and Hanoverian ships lying in the port of Copenhagen. The vessels of Hamburg and Lübeck are onlv to be li va a a respected as lone as their respective countries ansiain irom joining ine aitacKon uenmark. In Lombardy, the scene of war is not mate rially changed; The army of Charles Albert. after having been repulsed before Festhieria. a. . . a a . ... wmcn up to tne last accounts nad not beeu ta ken, continues to maintain its position on the banks of Mansio, the King's headquarters bar ing been at Volta. There is evidently a pause in the courage of Charles Albert. . The Milan Gazette, not bad authority on auch points, although relied. upon respecting all real incidents of the war, hints that the riv er Mansio is the limit eeparatinz Lombard v from the Venetian Provinces, and that having anven uro Austria us out tn ijomontav, me missions of the Sardinians and the King would terminate when Parma and Mantua had fallen. On the 19th an attempt was made to surprise the advance post of the latter fortress, and the King advanced to the ditches, but the garrison kept itself vigorously within the walls, and nothing waa accomplished, except the killing of four of the beseigers. The official account or Gen. Kadetzky, re ceived at Vienna on the 15th, states that his position was unalteTt-d, and he seemed little to apprenend any success ot the riedmontese against the Pescbieria. ' On the 18th some skir mishes took place, in which the Austria ns were victorious, and they had taken possession of Trevano, Valvasne; and Codroips. Rein- e . . iorcements were coming irotn tne pass towards Udina. and the war steamers oi the Austrian allies were put in fighting order, and placed at the disposal of Count Nugent. . Thus it ap pears tnat tne lortunes ot Charles Albert nave received a check, which only a tremendous ef fort and great courage can repair. Inactivity will now be almost as fatal to bis army as de feat, at this critical moment, would to his family. In Snaiiv mutter rr ff niwrinf in, wards an outbreak.

The latter form of government r j: i .i ? rt auer uiscussing tne, question iu very in nam ma tory language, is declared the best that can be adopted, and, it is added, the nation desires it. The accounts from Baden are of the most de plorable character. . The insurgents intimated that they wished to capitulate to the force sent against them, but would treat with none but the general in command, unless Gen. Gandern advanced from Schleingen, which the insur gents had evacuated, and which. Gandern had taken possession of. The General stepped from the ranks to parley with the rebels, and the chivalrous warrior exhorted the rebels to obey the voice of the law, but they refused to listen to his counsel. As the General retired to his own forces, he was treacherously shot at, and mortally wounded by three balls. The troops were exasperated to see their chief basely slaughtered, and fell upon the insurgents, who they completely routed, leavings large number of their dead upon the field. The troops kept up the pursuit, and encountered another party of insurgents headed by Struve.' which was also attacked and routed, when night coming ou, a atop ?was put to the engagement.'

The intention of the King of Sardinia to abandon the war of independence rather than consent to the estAblishment of a Republic in Lombar- r . A'vl is confirmed br a despatch which arrived at Milan on the 20th from the headquarters of the Piedmontese army. This despatch brings the news of an attack directed by the Kinz in nerson. against the Austrian army, 'stationed in the neighborhood of Mantua. The Duke of Savor was also present at this affair. The ac count states that after a very warm engagement the Austnans were compelled to retire ana shut themselves up in the fortress.'

New York, May 10,1818. xou will recollect that soon after the defeat of the Whigs in '44 a proposition was made to erect a monument to the memory of Henry Clay. Many of the Whigs iu all parts of the United States were ready to contribute and anxious tosee the project carried intoeflect. Soon after another proposition was made to raise a liberal donation to be presented to Mr. Clav for the purpose of beautifying and ornamenting Asuiauu. uci Asuiana ue toe monument ana Mr. Clay the architect, said the Whigs, in al parts oi tne united Mates, it is known that Mr. Uay s House has been thronged with vis itors for the last 20 yeais, and nearly as much ou uj uia fviiuicu uuueuu aa uj mm poillica friends. - These numerous visitors are all invited to partake of the hospitalities of Mr. Clay which but lew decline. Tins has of course been a constant source of expense to Mr. Clay, aside from the time which he has been obi iced to de vote to such visitors. The proposi tion of rais ing a liberal donation, after the manner of the Cobden fund in England, received the unouali fied approbation of the Whig party. They were auxiuus mat a cnannei rnignt be opened by which their donations could be collected and forwarded to Mr. Clav.

Dear Sir : 1 received vour friend lr letter: and feel under great obligation to you for the kind attentions and purposes ' towards me which it expresses. You have thought it due to me that i should be presented with some Urge and liberal testimonial of a pecuniary nature by the Whigs of the States, and with that view you have devised a nlan of accom plishing the object which is sketched in your letter.

The members of the Provisional Government of France have a hard time of it if we may believe the stories told by Paris correspondents. . One of. them - writing to the Cincinnati Gazette says: . -in rAA timoa. verr bodvwas nermitted to approach the sovereign and prefer nis petition. In the cycle oi years, we nave arnveu umi nnint. Kverv bodv eoes to the Provisory Government to ask relief, if he is not in an ex rtlr romfortable rxition. The French have been so long used to naving everyuiius u hw ihA ßnvrnment. that the v cannot think of any other plan to get anything done. Since Napoleon's time, the government has appoint ed every officer in France down to the runners for the justices ot tne peace, managed an tne public enterprises, authorized every town meet ing, presided at all boards ot improvement, di rected every course of lectures in the colleges, and in ahort treated the people like a great baby in leading-strings. The present Govern ment feels the inconvenience of this. The different trades feels the effects of the stagna tion of business and appoint their deputations to eo to the Provisory Government to demand relief. The deputies harrangue the Government and the Government harrangues the deputies, and then they part with cries of "Vive la Re publique, bom parties saiisnea lur ten min utes: not onlv the different trades send their deputies, but foreigners of each nation of ours among the rest; washerwomen, seamstresses, coalheavers, grenadiers, the national guatd, &c. &c., &c; at the rate of some half dozen per day. Yesterday, the members of the Govern ment flattered themselves than they nad got through with their harrangues to the deputa tions. They had received all that could be de vised or thought of. Thev were counting up how many hundred times they had played the maiestic. had put their hands on their hearts and said, "Citizens, I am profoundly touched by the events of this day. Citizens, excure my emotion . &c. etc While they were congrat ulating themselves on trje rosy perspective, an other deputation was announced. The mem bers whose turn it was to harangue, took the usual maiestic position and conned over the heads of his last oration to the masonic deputa- talion. The deputation was introduced. It was a lone double nie of old maids. The tallest one bore a banner decorated with an image of St. Catharine. The Spokeswoman commenced by saluting the revolution as the emancipation of bumam to, and finished by demanding that the Gov ernment, which was organizing every thing and securing the rights of all, should organize a little the important question of marriage. "Ah! ah!" interrupted the member, "we touch here on the question of divorce. This is a grave matter, verry grave. No, no, cried all the ladies. "And added the spokeswoman, "we claim only that the Government should guar anty hereafter to every citoyenne a husband.' The citizen minister put on all his gtavity. He could not answer. He coughed, spit in bis handkerchief, wiped his nose and looked first atone and then at another. - Something must be said. He placed his hand on his heart, in the usual manner, and commenced: "Citoy- ennes, what you have so eloquently said, touch es me deeply I will reportyour demand to the Provisory Government, which will think as I do. However, it strikes me that a tax of the nature you demand ought not to be the object oia special oecree, iui snouiu come unaer tne head of patriotic offering." This is the last deputation, but others will be forthcoming. I won't vouch for the truthfulness of the report ot the speeches, but the street rumor, gives it as above. . raosrEBirr or Uoshersville. The great advantages resulting to the country around Connersville, Indiana, from the Whitewater Canal, is thus told by the Telegraph published at that place : "There are now bein finished in our town, two Flouring Mills of the largest class. One is owned by Mr. A. B. Conwell & Sons, and is five stories high, calculated for eight run of stones. This mill will cost, when finished, upwards of 815,000. It is to be supplied with water from the river, and will de ready for grinding in about six weeks. "The other mill is being put up by Messrs. Wetheiland & Hughes. It is four stories high, and will contain four run of stone. This mill gets its power from the Canal. We do not know what the cost of this mill will be, but presume it will approach 810.900.

Queen of Spain to Pi i uce Leopold, of Saxe-Cubourg, cdusin german of Quoen Victoria.' Notwithstanding his near relationship to this candidate, Lou a Philippe considered himself bound to oppose his pretension, believing that his success would cause the ovetlhrow of tbs Spanish throne.

Lord Aber deen added, aud wh'?n she shall have borne a child.' Be it so, I replied. ! dö h of de sire better; for if the Queen were to' remain sterile, the Infanta would become the neces sary or the inevitaUe heiress, and that would not suit me no more than you; but, however there must be some reciprocity in this a flair, and if I give yo" your securities it if just that in return you should give me: mine.

The French Minister protested against Prince Leopold. Palmerston would nut yield. .

As soon as the English Minister got ' wind of i his, he began to support the clattrs of, 'Don Enrico, Francisco's brother.
