Truth is stranger than fiction, and very
specially in regard to politics and thore en
aed therein. The fact that a portion of
tlie Democratic press of the State are veue-
mcntlv urning the claims of this man Mc
Vntt to the. hifh and resrondble olike of
United States Senator, is so very absurd a uc
riiliculou--, that we would be disposed to be
lieve it all fiction, did not our own eyes as
sure us that it w a? truth. That' editors o
Democratic, racers fhoukl su.,tum hnn m
the face of all the startling, and undeniei
caul undeniable developments as set fortl
by the Uonthem ilrtormer, i a gross - ui-iut
to an intelligent people. Even should they
have the' hardihood to" say they attached no
credit to facts so strongly and completely
proven by the Reformer, they should with
an earnest desire to see the party succeed,
refrain from forcing upon the people a man
who is so odious generally through the State
to them as MeXutt. Tliev oncrht with a
knowledge of these facts I efore them, sacri
fice their own personal preferment and in
the language of tho lamented and venerated
Hero of the Hermitage, w e say to them,
"Ijcaiv your fr-tend and stand by yvr coun
try." MeXutt's conrst upv-n the Texas
question and a. great question it is, for upon
it depended and to it are we. indebted for
our late glorious victory; must forever lose
him the confidence and suffrages of a party
whow bhto see their principles ' trhaoj h
and perpetuated. Upon that question it
has !een abundantly proven that he, was
not only lukewarm and faltering, but' that
he spoke of the annexation of Texas as a
humbug and gotten up to break dawn Mr.
Van Euren, also that he would have pre
ferred Mr. Van Euren even after his Anti
Texas letter had been received. So anx
ious was he for Mr." Van lluren's nomina
tion and t-o chagrined was he at the neces
sary defeat of such a selection, that be for-
got his duty as a patriot, in h'n preference
for a man. It was owing to the coldness
and disaffection of himself and others great
er than he, that our victory la?t fall was
not obtained by a much more triumphant
majority, but many thanks to the honest
veomanrv of the country, we overcame the
combined efforts of w higgery and one man
Democracy. And we would ask rgainf
how can papers calling themselves Demo
cratic, sustain such a man. Instead of ex
hibiting as they should a manly indepen
dence and desire to reflect the wishes of
their party, tliey ?diow a miserable and base
subserviency to one man, rendering them1
contemptible in the.- eyes, of .every high
minded man in the community. Vv'e think
instead of' their being called independent
Democratic papers '.they should be called
fiejtendenl MeXutt papers. r ..

Gaitkmrn :The river continues rising
here, and is, as I am informed by those who
know, within six or seven feet of high wa
ter mark. It has risen from l.to 18 feet
within the last fortnight, and its broader
surface adds much to the beauty of the view
from this city, which I consider .one-of the
most lovely landscapes ever presented to
the eye; especially" when arrayed in the
gorgeous splendor of sunset. The placid
expanse of the, mighty''. Mississippi the gal
la nt steamers passing and repassing -the
distant shores that deck the bori'a with
richness and verdure the drapery of the
evening sky, rcilecting. iri a thousand ray -,
the departing n'.orv of the sun orient a
combination f beauty beyond the skill of
the poet or painter, and finds no parallel in
any thing but itself. It is beyond all human
etibrtand can only be produced by Om
nipotence.; ;

and cold, col l is the .heart that does net-reflect,
as its dazzling brightness -lles away in
trie fwiligbt; how frail are a'd thin here
helow,how brief is the dream of lil'e, and
how necessary it is to improve the tlectian
hours that are left, to 'prepare for the-ik-od
of death Which is sweeping onward and on
ward to the great ocean .of eternity '
There is a speculation abroad in this city
vv.ucn is ce-'.nie-i to work wonders tor gcM.nl
roevil, if persisted ia. The business bcaRtic;
have for many years, been ' fluctuating;
sometims3 down and sometimes up, and
anon down, again.- Xow the"prcipositicn is
to build blocks of stores along the batture,
between 'the bluff and the river, along what
is called W ater street ; indeed, two or three
foundations have been already laid, and
yesterday there was a sale of "lot for the
purpose on the Westerly end of Poplar and
Washington street-;. The. ale was well
attended and the bidding, proceeded with
animation. Some of the more eligible lot.
lam informed, brought as high as s.KH)
anil lJ3,000, and so on down to G00, ac
cording to the situation. , The occupants of
stores on broul Eow,'m many cases, think
that the matter will end in smoke; and that
though the land may change hands, there
will be no building of consequence al pres
ent; but I believe many of the buildings
have already been contracted for, and will
be speedily erected. This will produce an
entire revolution in the business part of the
city, and probably do away with that fruit
ful source of misery and crime, the Flat
Beats. Though a great convenience at
present, and many of them conducted upon
w holesome and upright principles, there can
be no doubt, 1 apprehend, in the minds of,
the rejecting portion ot the conununity, but
that their entire al-olition would vastly im
prove the morals of.that neighborhood, ana

From Texas' Important
The steamship Xew York arrived here
yesterday afternoon from Galvetot, which
jdace she lett on Sunday last, the 15th ult
President Jones has issued another Pro
clamation, announcing the result of the ne-
collations that have been conducted by
Capt. Elliott with the Mexican Government.
. Captain Elliott came passenger, m the
New York, perfectly content, it may be
presumed, with himself for having produced
confusion in Texas as he did in China. We
say that the Captain arrived here in the
Xew lork; but we beg to bo understood
as not announcing this fact upon hb own
word for it : nor do we dedgn to make any
statement in regard to las destination upon
representations that he may make in that
respect. It is. unsafe to allude to a diplo
matist's intended whereabouts in advance
ofjiis locomotion; especially when speak
ing of one who gets abroad a belief that be
is going to Charleston, in order. to blind the
public eye to his escape into Mexico. The
Captain lias exhausted all tho opium lie
brought with him from China it will trou
ble him to put the Argus eyes of the pre s
aiecp again. We 'dozed once over his re
presentations it was a short sicsttt, and the
la-t we will indulge in from the same .sopo
rific. - . .
We proceed at once to lay be for the pub
lic this third Proclamation of the President.
How ninny more are to follow, we canm-t
trust ourselves to guess. Ills-Excellency
ha got in the vein,, and they may succeed
one another to the "crack of doom,' like

A IHOCJ.AMATIfX.
The Executive is. now enabled to declare
to the peop-Je of Texas the actual state of
their a flairs with respect "to" Mexico, to the
end that they may direct and dispose them
as they shall judge best for the honor and.
permanent interests of the Republic.
During the course of the la;t winter, it
reached the knowledge ot the Executive,
from various sources of information (un
official, indeed, but still worthy of atten
tion and credit) that the late and pu- cut
Government of Mexico were dispo -ed to a
peaceful settlement of the diilicultics with
Texas by the acknowledgment of our In
dependence, upon tho understanding that
Texas would maintain her sepcrate exist
ence. No action, however, could be taken
upon the subject, beause . nothin jr authentic
was known until the month of March In t,
when the Representatives of Vtrvtncn and
Great Britain near this Government, joint
ly and formally renewed the offer. of the
good offices of those powers with Mexico,
for the early and peaceful settlement of this
struggle, upon the basis of the aekuowlcdg-
meat of our Independence by that Eepub-
It would have been the imperative duty
of .the Executive tit once to reject thce of
fers, if they had been accompanied bv con
dition:; of any kind w hatever; but wil'i ac
tive watchfulness m that respect, and great
disinclination to entangling alliances of any
description, or with any power, he must de
clare, in a spirit of justice, that no terms or
conditions have ever been proposed by the
two Governments in juestien, or either of
them, as the con-ideration ol their lin ndlv
interposition.
Maturely considering the situation of af
fairs at that time, the Executive. felt that it
was incumbent upon him not to reject this
opportunity of securing to the people of this
country, untrammelled by conditions, a
peaceful, honorable and advantageous set
tlement of their difficulties with Mexico, if
they should sec fit to adopt that mode f
adjustment. .
Thu? influenced, be accepted tljcgood of
fices of the two powers, which, withtho-e
of the United States, had been previously
invoked by I exas, and placed m the hand
lot their. lttnre-tntativci a statement ot con
. . , . -
dltions preliminary to a treaty of
preliminary to a treaty ol peace,
which he declared ho should be ready to
snhriiit to the -people of this -country for
their decision and action as soon as they
w ere adopted by the Government of Mei-
c:'' .!lt he emphatically remindeil those
tiUuaionares for the spoc-ial notice of their
Governments, that he was no more th;u
the agent of the 'people; tha't he could nei
ther direct, control nor influence their de
cision.; and that his ltoundeu duty was to
carry out their dettnidnation, constitution
ally ascertained and expressed, be it what
it might. Our Reprc-v-ntative at the courts
of France and Great liiitam, in addition to
