It strongly recommends an in - a v crease in the Army and JNavy; which is certainly very proper when we take into consideration the peculiar situation of our. affairs with both Great Britain and Mexico We learn that the Oregon negotiation has been entirely suspended and that there are no signs of any re-opening in prospect The recent despatches of Mr. McLane to the Secretary of State, say that England has come to the determination to make no more offers, that she will allow us to go on and give the notice, pass our laws for the protection of our citizens in that territory, or, do any thing else that we may of right do in accordance with the provisions of the treaty; but the moment we come into con flict with what she considers her rights there, we will have to try our strength with her for the possession of them. This is said to be the substance of the last advi ces from our Minister at London. To use the language of the Memphis Ap peal: "We would not be understood as the advocates of war, we consider it a great evil, and the nation which recklessly provokes a war, has a fearful accountability to answer for; but there are some evils greater than war: first among these is a sacrifice of na tional honor; and another, the habitual yielding to the groundless claims of England, conceived in avarice, and sought to be'per fected in wrong. At least, if negotiations are to be renewed, let us be prepared in the mean time; for the greater our strength, the better the bargain we shall get." 07" Our neighbor of the Gazette seems to have become excited in reference to the slight notice wo took of his "eloquent" Clay har angue., some low weeks since. He is down on us nearly a half column, and one would think his very existence depended on exalting Henry Clay and talking about "sir" Robert Walker, Mr. Polk's Kane letter, Plaquemine votes, &c. Now neighbor, you must know that your whig friends with C. M. Clay at the head, played the card as well as ever Sir Harry himself did at poker, in order to get tho abolition vote of the North. If Sir Henry is not an Abolitionist he was very willing for Cassius to obtain their votes for him. Neighbor, don't pour out anoth er such mess of stuff in reference to the causes of Clay's defeat don't complain of that which you and your political friends have brought on yourselves, but recollect the cry of "British Gold" and the numerous train of "Roorback's" vou tried to play off on the people. Oh Hush! .fjCf" We have been not a little disgusted at the late attempts in our village to parade the Militia. Most of the men knowing very little about military evolutions, and their officers evidently knowing less, made it in all, the most ridiculous affair we have ever seen. Let us have a respectable Artillery company or Infantry? Certainly there is energy enough in Holly Springs to keep one together. The 'Weather. The weather, until within the last two days has had more the appearance of February than April. But spring with her green robes and prattling birds is now with us. Our Cotton planters have but few of them commenced planting. 0We are glad to see the improvement our town authorities are making in the new bury-ing-ground. There is nothing perhaps more noticed by strangers and sojourners amongst usi than the last resting place of the dead. rjCf"The. new revenue bill amendatory of the revenue laws of this State which we published last week it is said curtails the amount of revenue, some $80,000.

We have no doubt the Tribune and its accomplices are ready to perform any dirty work assigned them by the whole train of Abolition leaders. We request a perusal of the following article, in order that some of the consequences of these fa natical interferences may be discerned. ST. DO AIT NfiO. Those familiar with the history of the lovely island of St. Do mincro, (says the Vicksburg Sentinel,) once a fairy land, made the scene of the beauti ful storv of Paul and Virmnia. but since chanered into a Pandemonium by the Hell born doctrines of abolition and their prac tical enforcement, know that in the interior fastnesses of that Island, amidst all the con fusion -and havoc of the rebellion and the subsequent disturbances, a small co nmunity of whites still preserved themselves, and now constitute a little republic separate from the negro population, where the peaceful arts 1-1 a J IM ana civilization nave Deen mamiainea, jikb a nest of violets blooming secure in a storm which has spread desolation overall around them. Against this little band, the demons who hold the bulk of the Island have lately renewed a war of horror; and by the latest accounts, aided by the abolitionists of this country and England, they were concen tratinfja force to march against them. A correspondent of the New York Sun draws the following picture of Pierrot, the leader of this horrible expedition, and the plans he seeks to accomplish: ,"IIe is to save only the most beautiful white women for his officers. All our women over 40 years of age, , captured by his army, are to be taken to this niace. chained back to back. Our young women under that age, down to the girls of five, are to be delivered over to his officers end soldiers! This is the monster work your abol itionists in New York, Philadelphia and Boston are helping with ships and money! He is now only waiting for a steam-propeller, which the abolitionists or anti-slavery societies of Boston are to send him, to carry out his horrible designs upon this little handful of white people! He is a master workman in the trade of human butch- a. . 1 1 1 ery. Aitnougn now an oiu anu ieeme man, ne was in youth the leader of the powerful jet blacks who fell upon and destroyed their mas ters. He murdered his master and mistress with his own hands. Their only daughter, a beautiful creature, whom the female slaves were about to murder, as Pierrot rushed into the room and saved her and made her his wife, and drew around his new estate a large number of negroes who had also taken their master s daughters as wives. At the expiration of some years, when the new race of mulattoes first began to excite civil commotion, the bloody Pierrot was the first to plunge the fatal dagger into the bosom of his wile and children. His example was fol lowed by his neighbors, and the whites and mulattoes were thus exterminated in that district. This act was appiauded by the blacks. Pierrot become the Virginius of Ilayti, and at last he has ascended to the Presidential chair. He has vowed that every white male shall be extermi nated, with the female children under five years ot age." The Kentucky Desperado. The post mortem examination recently held on the body of the notorious John U. Waring, at Versailles, Ky., is said to have disclosed a fact long suspected, that he wore a strong coat of mail made of steel! This would go to prove that with all his thirst for blood he was a most arrant coward. None of the cit izens of Versailles seemed able to form the slightest conjecture as to who the oernetra t-T ( I tor of the assassination was, and probab ly there was no desire to know. The ri rle with which Waring was shot from the upper window oi a hotel, was one that had been standing in the room for several months. From an article in the Lexington Obser ver, we learn that Waring was walking from Devine's Hotel to the court house at the time he was shot, and that several per sons were looking at him at the time. The shot was fired from Shelton's Hotel, and the rifle used was a sort of common property about the town. It was thought the person who committed the act must have been se creted in the garret two or three days. He must have been an excellent marksman, thus to hit his object while walking along. War ing was unable to speak, the muscles of the tongue being entirely cut away by the ball. He made signs for pen, ink and paper, how ever, made out his will, brought a writ a- gainst one of his neighuors, and thus died, a a a a a m r as he had lived, in the midst of litigation and strife. IN SENATE. Waihgtox, Tuesday, March 24; 1846. THE OREGON RESOLUTIONS. On motion, the Senate resumed, from Thursday last, the resolutions from the com mittee on Foreign relations ior uie iwene months notice; together with amendments proposed by Messrs. Crittenden, Colquitt, Hannegan, Breese, Johnson, of Maryland, and others, embraced in the subject matter of the special order of the day. Mr. Chalmers, a young and promising Senator from Mississippi, rose to. the ques tion, and after reviewing the contrariaty of opinions upon the effect ot the notice, and the. various reasons ot its advocacy as illus trated in the discussions ot the feenate some advocating it as a peace measure others as the first of a series ot measures leading to the formal occupation , of the whole disputed territory some supporting the notice in that it would facilitate a "com promise" others on the ground that it would prevent a compromise, by "securing the "whole or none, afterreviewingthis con trariety ot opinions, Mr. Chalmers was on ly the more deeply convinced of the " vast importance of the issues involved, and of the necessity of acting wiih.- deliberation and circumspection. Before proceeding to the notice, Mr. C. adverted to a reference by the Senator from Miine (Mr. Evans) to the .negotiations with Russia for the settle ment of the northern boundary with that power. The injunctioa of secrecy was not removed lrom those negotiations; but the Senator from Maine hai been understood to say that it had been coaceded by the Unit ed States at that time that the Spanish title gave a valid claim to any of the territory of the northwestern coast, but that the whole territory was left open to all the world. Mr. Chalmers said he hai been looking into this correspondence, and his understanding was entirely different from what he hadun derstood as the interpretation of the honora ble Senator. Mr. Evans said that his views upon the general subject of the Russ an negotiations, had been drawn from several newspapers; but that what he had said m regard of the invalidity of Spanish title was, that our gov ernment assumed as a prmcple ot the iNoot ka Sound Treaty, that the territory was op en to all the world. Mr. Chalmers dissented, and assumed that upon priority of discovery the Spanish was the very best title. Duiing Mr. Chalmers speech, a message was received from the President of the Uni ted States, which will be found in to-days pa per. J Mr. Chalmers resumed the thread of his remarks. He entirely concurred in the course of the President; and whatevermight be the consequences, the responsibility could not fall upon him. He had only been par- suing the line of policy of his "illustrious predecessors. Tho liuuoiaLU j3eMte wo ferred to the correspondence of Mr. Clay while Secretary of State, setting forth our title to the 60th parallel before the settle ment with Russia, to be as "clear and un questionable" as the President now assum ed it to be up to 54 40. He contended, too, that while the President had declared an opinion unfavorable to the prospective issue of negotiations, he had not closed the door against the acceptance of an offer upon the basis ot the 4th degree. The resolutions of the Legislature of Mississippi upon this question, recommending the notice and the assumption, at all hazards, of our just rights to Oregon, but without an express declara tion that they were "clear and unquestiona ble up to 54 40," were here read to the Sen ate at the request of Mr. C He concurred in those resolutions. He should go for thei notice a3 a primary object to the settlement of this controversy. But this did not debar the hope of an honorable compromise, and the preservation ot an honorable peace. He 1 regretted, therefore, that the Senator from Connecticut, (Mr. Niles,) had opposed the from Georgia, cn the ground that it would ' look like a begging of the question. The great object to be desired in the action of the senate, was so to shape the measure be fore it as to secure its unanimous voice, and the moral power that would be exerted through its unanimous vote. As it was, the question, in a measure, had gone out of their control, it had been taken up by the mere A I 1 .1 . " puny nacKs u was in tne hands of dema gogues who were using it to the preiudirfi of a speedy and peaceable settlement. Events were hurrying us on; and he confessed that he contemplated the aspect of affairs with a teefing that there was much to alarm much to hazard the peace of the country; and that we were approaching a crisis in which it would be beyond the Dower of Con and of either government, to prevent the issue of war. These apprehensions too, were excuea, m the lace ol the fact, that four-fifths of the Senate were in favor of a "compromise," including three-fourth nf th democratic party in the Senate. The Pres ident nimselt could not wisely reject a "com- r-.wu.ov. o luiivuiuui ram i ifn ivnro offered, there is nothing in the the accompanying or subsequent papers of CV.UUC, Uiai Will lUStltV the mforon. of a rejection. It it were so, why not pre pare for war? Why not remmmnj ,k. requisite increase of the army and the navy ? Why not arm the country for defence? Why not issue requisitions for a direct an- uluu wi uwn me peon e of fiftv a " men voting against a "compromise. in .u- A f nil th?"a evidences of the sense of Congress, it were impossible for the Pres- ident to reject aU"compromise, uu ucSw ation. Mr. Chalmers referred to the letter of Sir Robert Peel to the Queen, on resign in his office as Prime Minister, in which Sir Robert promised to satisiy the Jving oi a 1-1 At -a. a-- AvI France that the wariiKe preparuuuua England had no reference to any contem plated rupture with the French monarchy, and inferred that these preparations must, therefore, look to the contingency wnn a ththe United States, in the per haps anticipated unfavorable foreclosure of negotiations, in snort, inai mere was u pofnt beyond which theBritish Government would not go; and that the only preventive of war is through, negotiations and "com promise." Mi. Chalmers, after deploring the consequences of a war with Great Brit ain, returned to the movements in Parlia ment for the repeal of the Corn-laws and the commencement thereby of the milleni um of free trade. He hailed this movement as the dawning of the day of deliverance and of liberty to the'oppressed as the breaking light ot the up-coming day ol universal lree dom; and it was deeply to be deplored that this auspicious hour should be obscured by shadows, clouds and darkness. - By the brig Oceana, we have received papers from the city of Mexico to the 10th ult. The files before us are filled with long and important articles against El Tiempo, the monarchical organ, which continues to advocate and defend its principles. The Memorial Historico has been changed into El Republicano, with the view of defending the country and defeating the Tiempo. Mr. Slidell was still at Jalapa, from which place he addressed a letter to the Mexican Government, in order to inquire whether he should be admitted or not as minister. La llesperia says that a long debate had taken place at the Council, the result of which was not known; but the Republicano ot the lUth says that by a source which can be relied upon, the editors have received information that Mr. bhdell will not be ad mitted as Minister of the United States, and that Mexico will not enter into any arrange ments about the Texas question unless it is agreed to settle the boundary at the Sabine We think we see it settled there ! The Mexicans were somewhat alarmed at the arrival of so many American ves sels of war at their ports, and the journals we have received state that Gen. Paredes is disposed to march personally at the head of the troops, should the Americans show any hostile intentions. The Republicano of the 10th publishes an extract of a letter which shows, in some-re spect, the impossibility that Paredes should remain longer in his actual position. La Heperia remarks that the official pa per, El Diario, has changed its title, and the word llepuhhra does not appear m it as be fore. In the present state of things, says the llesperia, the slightest thing is noticed by all, and this change has caused many to believe that the Government has an interest in the principles advocated by El Tiempo. We find full particulars about a loan which the Government is about negotiating wnn inree mercantile nouses ot Mexico, to the amount of two millions of dollars. It was reported that Gen. Mija had in tercepted some letters for the American Consul at Matamoras, which stated that the American troops were about stationing .1 1 . 1 . a a a a-a . w tnemseives on tne leit bank oi the Kio lira vo, about the 27th of February. The Archbishop of Mexico, Senor Don Manuel Posada y Garduno, was preaching miavoroi ine monarcnicai system. There are about four thousand clergymen and fri ars in Mexico, and nearly all of them are in lavor ot a monarchy. By letters received in Tampico. dated Tepic,24th Feb., it appears that a new re volution was on Jhe point of breaking out in that portion of the Mexican Republic, the object of which is to separate the States of Sonora, Smaloa, Chihuahua, and Durano from the rest of the Republic. Gen. Urrea, who has for some time been in retirement, would, it is said, be solicited to take com mand of the revolutionary forces. By a passenger arrived on board of the Oceana we learn that at last accounts re ceived in Vera Cruz on the 15th inst., Mr. Slidell was daily expected at that port, as h had intimated to the authorities that he must be recognized immediately or he would be compelled to leave the country. The Mexican fleet at Vera Cruz consisted of two steamers, three brigs, and 4 schoon ers There were also in port the U. States frigate Potomac, three sloops of war, and the brig Somers. The S. arrived from Pen sacola on the 10th. Capt. Creighton, of the Oceana, reports sccu au iiigusn steamer standing Vera Cruz on the 16th. Th rv havin into v era Uruz on the 16th. The Oceana sailed in company with the schooner Water V itch, for this port. The schooner Sarah Lavinia was advertised to sail for New York on the 17th insL JV. O. nh m,k March. Diocese op Mississippi.The Vicksburg Whig states that Bishop Otev. Prnv. RIk! op of Mississippi, gives notice that n nn. tion of the Diocese of Mississippi will be held at Vicksburg on Thursday, the 7th day!. Further Hexican News. We clip the following items from the Picayune of the 30th ultimo : The Mexican papers translate from the New York Sun a pitiable account of the sufferings of Gen. Taylor's troops at Corpus Christi. The distress of the officers, for want of fire, truffled turkeys, and other like incentives to arduous service, is depicted in terms to draw tears of anguish from the man of sensibility. The Mexicans rejoice to find the army demoralized by its suller- ings,and promise themselves that it will fall an easy prey. It would be easy to fill our sheet with ex cerpts from the Mexican -papers, but tho public minu is so intent upon ine iwuiuuui questions oi xur. ouueu s recepuon, aim uic probable issue of the attempt to convert Mexico into a monarchy, that intelligence upon. any less important themes would be overlooked. El Republicano ihe successor to the Sigh XIX gives full details of the revolu tion in Yucatan, and then remarks that it U most singular that neither the Government nor the Government papers have allowed the slightest intimation of so important an event tatranspire. - - - ".a It is announced that President Paredes will take the field in person, if the war with the United States is commenced by an at tack on the part of our fleet. lying at V era Cruz. El Republicano sets down Gen. Taylor's force at 6000 men marching upon Matamo- ros, while another column of 1000 is moving to a higher point on the Rio Grande, and yet the General commanding the vanguard of the Mexicans is totally destitute ot re sources to make head against them sx) says the Monitor. . A paper called El Contra Tiemo has been started at v ictoha, m Durango. The Mexican Government, in its neces sities, condescended to despatch Col. D. Ju an Cano, to Yucatan, to solicit aid to pro secute the war against our country. The DiarioOmcial denies that Gen. Ur rea has any connection with the plot to sep arate the v estern Departments irom the Central Government, and says he is on his way to the capital. The Mexican press both opposition and administration are clamorous ior war win the United States: and the official iourna says the President is doing all in his power to be able to commence hostilities. court to which the aprT v,.v ,w lUo paid w,n,l . im sufficient 1. .1- 7'll-'i-. denng the judgment, aj , f F". verse party, and ecmditiS 7 ment of such judgment damages upon the r:fr aforesaid, in ense the sam, '3 .n 1 c i ; . y ti act Si,aH ,, la;; in force from and after it t l:,'t- C A Pproyed Feb. t5, 1 s ' ' AN ACT to rt-iw al an .. . r - - . proved m-v u, m:.
