?> (or Eaevern New Mexico) to submission |
force 4: m. As soon as intelligence of these j
events r-\jMc>Va?hington, the two Texan Senatort
tecjKio^liave materially modified jhe course |
which they hud previoutly pursued. Up to that |
time they had supported the Compromise bill, t
which proposed to t uy otf their claims of territory |
by a payment in money to an amount of not lees j
than ten millions of dollars. On learning, however, j
the decided step uj>on which the New Mexican
Assembly had ventured, they appear to have become
alarmed lest their light to compensation
should be injuriously aflected by proceedings which
were evidenily giounded on the assumption that
tanta Fe was not a Texan dependency at all. Accoidmgly
they at once declared war against that
imrt oi Mr. Clay's measure which related to New
ult xico; and their hostility was the more important
from the tenderness with which the whole
South is known to guard the interests of Texas as
the nursing mother of half-a-dozeu future slave
States^ On the 30th ult , Mr. Dawson, the Senator
from Georgia, moved, as an amendment to the
earlier cluueeh of the bill, that the o|>eratiou of th'*
Territorial Government which they constituted iu
New Mexico t-honld be confined to the districts
west of the Rui Grande, i. e., to Western New
Mexito. This amendment, which retained Santa
Fe in its dei>eiidenee on Texas, was carried by the
votes of the Texan Senators, anted by those from
the South and South west, and by the faw from
the North who are systematically infavor of every
thing which w ill embarrass a compromise that is
condemned as disadvantageous to the sacred cause
?f free soil. On the next day, luly 31, Mr Pearce
?f Maryland, a professed friend of the measureafter
pointing out lhat th virtual effect of the
amendment carried the d v before would be to empower
the scanty settlor west of the Rio Grande
to make liiws for the uch more numerous population
dwelling east o' the river?moved that so
much of the lull as ;elated to New Mexico should
be stnii k out, on the understanding that the cl iuse*
removtd should tie re-introduced m their eriginal
form, and Without Mr. Dawson's proviso.
This course, which was rendered necessary
by the n;cde of procedure in the Senate,
?ti ms strar lie enough, but its results were still
stranger. Mr Peaice's first motion, to eliminate
ilie clauses bearing reference to New Mexico,
was readily carried. His second proposal,
to restore the claases as they originally
stood, was rejected?ihe supporters of Mr. I>awson's
amendment Voting against him to a man.
The moment that the general scheme of the measure
had thus been docked of its principal ingredient,
the Senate seems to have been carried away
by a movement resembling that lmjietuous rush of
men or buflaloes in oue continuous straight line
wbuh, in the language of the prairies, is denominated
a " stampedo. With brief intervals of
debate, and amid exhibitions of the utmost levity,
the clauses relating to the payment of money to
Texas, those referring to the pursuit and recovery
of fugitive negroes, and finally those constituting
Calitotnia a State, were successively rejected by
decisive majorities. Nothing was eventually left
but the portion w hich gave a government to the
eolony establish* d by the Mormon-* on the Great
Salt Lake. I he result will probably furnish the
successor of Joe Smith with the text of a truculent
homily. We must hold him excused if he
preaches that the heathens are about to exterminate
each other in internecine combat, and that ihe
re mini nt of Israel in lieseret will shortly he called
to take possession of the American world and of
the fulness thereof.
Bi'i he more ho(*-ful of the American journals are
venturing to anticipate that the hill, in its mutilated
state, will be sent down to the House of Representatives,
which will restore the omitted clauses,
and rtmit them to the higher chamber for acquiescent
e. Our caution will not suffer hs to be betrayed
into a prediction; but we cannot help seeing
that this is exactly one of the matters in which ths
lower House, returned by the collective population
?I the Union, will scarcely be permitted to dictate
to the Senate, which represents tke aggregiteof the
State*. On the other hand, difficulties oi all kinds
are accumulating, and it seeim. incredible that either
house of Congress will be willing to adjourn without
scnie kind of provision ioi their setilement.
The Texan militia arc positively stated to be
marching en New Mexico, and nothing that we
htve lately heard leads us to attach a Might importance
to the explosion of discontent which will
inevitably fo'low .the announcement in California
of the Senate's decision. The worst symptom of
all to disclosed by the altered tone of newspaper
controversy in the older States. It is hard to t>elieve
that the actional antipathies of North and
South, which serm 10 have gained fourfold their
ancient intensity in the single week between the
beginning of August and th? departure of our intelligence,
will exhale during the winter in nothing
nn re serious than words.
Ttic Balance of Power In Euro|>e anil

M xiiiik relating to the baUnce of power in

of Jialy, still forma portion of the learning

Viffue, partly by conquest. The nation which in
1783 was confined on the north by British Ameriea,
on the east b* the Atlantic, on the west by the
Mississippi, and on the south by Flotidn, has now
bo eilm<l?*d its southern boundary a-*. to have
reuchtd the Gulf of Mexico, and so stretched its
western limit as to have the Pacific Ocean
ing the whole length of its western boundary. The
people, who, when they declared themselves iudei
pendent, did not exceed 3,000,(Kto souls, now
! amount to above 25,000,000; and this powerful
1 people coolly informs the nations of I'.uro.ie that
> its safety is incompatible with any acquisition of
territory by any Euro|>ean State on the American
; continent Indeed, we have strong reason to believe
ihat the inquiry lately made by the cabinet
of Washington respecting ihe treaty supposed to
have been concluded between England and the
States of Yucatan and Costa Rica, was suggested
by tlie f> elilig w hieh first gave birth to this exclusive
maxim, and was intended to convey to liugiand
u hint ihat the United States meant to resent
any such interfere nee in American aP/air* as the
one sujfu'sfd That peace should lie maintained
between England and the United State*, must be
ihe wish of every rational man on both sides of the
Atlantic; but peace can only be maintained by a
; just (1'i.duct on the part of both nations, ami any
attempt on the part of the United States to possess
heiself of further territory would render it a matter
of absolute necessity on the part of Kugland to interfere
and prevent Buch aggression. Mexic* at pre1
sent lies helpless, und if Eoglaidshould standtd\j
j by, and not insist on the maintenance of the Mexican
i republic in its existing integrity, one campaign
! would suffice to add the chief State of fenj
tral America to the already formidable conft de,
eration cf the United States. England has her
sen no fleeiri' to acquire territory in central
America; but if there be any symptom of mi intention
to encroach ii|>on Mexico exhibited by the
| cabinet of Washington, we should do widely to extend
our protection to the independent republics
wbich at present hold, as rightful possessor", the
whole of Central Ameiica. And ihe United States
could have no rational ground of complaiut if
England were to enter into an alliance of friendship
and protection, not only with Yucatan and Casta
Kica, but with every one of the remaining republic!,
Mexico included. This is a subject which for
many reason* must continue to occupy the serious
att? nticn of English statesmen. It is evident that
shortly a communication mil be completed between
Ihe two oceans, and we have seen that a very
u hole tome jealousy on the part of England has
been exhibited with respect to this, which n about
to be the treat highway of nations. So far as a
nation can be bound by treaties, we are aware that
the United States are at this moment, by the late
treaty, under a strict obligation to permit to all
nations full permission to use, without hindrance,
the interded canal and railway. Hut this subject
| is to us of so vast an importance as respects our
POBseaiioM in Asiu and Austral-Asia, that we are
bound to take every possible precaution against interruption
at the Isthmus of Panama. The United
States has admitted the justice of this assertion
by the late treaty, in negotiating which Sir Henry
Hnlwer has shown great judgment and prudence,
llut a wise policy suggests the necessity of some
further precaution by means of an immediate arrangement
with the Statee of Central America,
with reference to this great channel of commtini
cation, through which must |>asn an immense
portion of the commerce of tlie world. If any
nation has a right to be iealou* with res|>ect to
: this subject, it is England; the United States is
without any pretext for fe?r upon the occasion, and
must not fie allowed to lay down and maintain
maxim* of international policy, the only object of
which must he to prepare for herself universal
d< minion upon the continent of America.
Spain and the l?lan<l of Culm.
Letters from Spain notice a French proposal
brought before the delegates of the fni^ign bondholders,
by ihe President of the Public Debts Committee
The principle involves the creation of a 3
percent stock, with a recognition of the common
arrears, on which a gradual rise to a maximum of
one and a half per cent interest is to take place.
Nothing, he wever, whs decided. The governm?ut,
it was repotted, comteinplHted reforms and
rredifieetions'niore favorable to free trade in the
cus'onis tariff.
Accounts from Madrid, of the 12rh ultimo, state
that tl.r government is actively employed in the ornani7
.tion of a corps of 4.100 men to reinforce the
garrison of Cuba.
It is Mild that the government of Spain intend
opening a direct line of communication by steam
between Madrid and the Island of Cuba; and that
m getiatiens are on foot for the speedy currying out
of the project. Count Mirasol was daily expected
on his leturn from Cuba, his mission to reconcile
the progressive and reform patty wuh the iidvocntes
of the existing system of the colony having not only
failed, but embittered bo'h against the home government.
According to the Clamor fuUioi, ihe
negotiation with Ihe Pope for a concordat had failed
; but the report is contradicted. Lord Howden,
lit r majesty's minister to the court of Madrid, was
daily becoming more |<opular.

of General Jose dr la Concha, w ho will take with ^

the discretion ard judgment exeicised in the Cabi- v
net ot M?drid. In this country there can be but ^

[Frim the London Tiroea Aug. 'IJ ] r
The measures contemplated at this critical mo- (
nieut by the Court of Madrid for the improved ad- r
ministration of Cuba have, doubtless, been sugges- p
ted by a sinceie anxiety to conliim the imperial te- j
nure of lhat valuable colony; but it is less apparent ,,
that they have been calculated with a proper a|>- J,
preciation ot what circumstances actually required. v
The new Captain-Ceneral will be attended by a
militaiy retinue of imposing strength. Nor can it j,
be questioned that the garrison of the island, when f,
thus reinforced, will be sufficient to overawe mal- r
contents at home, no less than to tehre away the r
piratical desperadoes of the c(<ntiguous gulf. But ,
ihe posiiion of Cuba ia so extiaordinary, and the tl
conditions of its tenure so peculiar, that unless appeal
is iiii.de to the inteiestsas Weil as the tears of f
its inhabitants it is highly improbable that the im- n
perinl control can be permanently maintained. >
The population of Cuba may be considered under ,,
a tripartite classification of social parties,each with v
its ow n distinct interests. These are the Creoles, -]
the colored classes, and the slave population itself j,
? exactly the eh ments which we re summoned into r
fuch fatal activity ht t^t Domingo by the first ?
French revolution. To these may be added, as a c
separate class, the officers and retainersof the cole)nial
i.dministration, und the garrison of the island?
a migrateiry and variable body, having little or no
thine in the chief interests of the j <>,mUtion, and I
servipc onlv te> maintain and siniboli/e its i*>litical
subjecTion.' Now, even the first of these classes, '
though that to whit h the imperial government might 11
most naturally * { (<*-tl, is left, as we recently took 8

and ii.tluenlial, possessing very considerable wealth, J
and tanking, not only among the chief proprietors '
of slaves, but, as was also the case at St. Domingo, '
among the most resolute advocates of slavery. The t
cieolts and colored eludes together form what f
may be termed the nutural constituency of the I
colony, and yet they are rigorously excluded from
all access to the more eligible grades of the public
service, whother military or civil. This arrange- .
ment, ef course, largely increusea the patronige in 1
the hands of the ministers at home, and enables a '
political adventurer to fortify himse lf in the poa- !
ression of power by a lavish distribution of lucra- "
tive places ; but it has operuted to the eHectual c
estrangement of these influential (wrties from the
inteiests of the iirireriisl state, and it would proba- 'J
bly have snapped the tie of all-giance long since, !
but for considerations to which we shall presently
allude. e
The position of Cuba is uch that we may de- ^
scribe it without d.*guise of facts, hs virtually Conlerrmg
u|?n its inhabitants the privilege of deter* '
mining their own political connections. A more r
p< WeiliiI itate thhli Spain is eager, on almost any 1'
teirr.s that any patty t ouhl dictate, to annex their v
tettitoiy to its own dominions It would, of
course, be vain to d> ny tiiat if the inclination
of the colony had bee n sincerely and generally
tuiiii d to the American alliance, even the ex- ?
pedim ii of NarcikO Lt>|* z would probably have ef- ^
lected the intended revolution ; nor can it be con- j
ceividthat the Spanish government, if i.nsuppoit- '
ed, could ofler an eflectu.il resistance to a plain
declaration of popular w ill, justitii d by years of
inif government, and teccnded bv the resolute co- rl
ojeri.tioii ot the I nned Sutea under pretexts which
would not le wanting for the occasion. On the (
other hand, it has been recently demonstrated 1
that without such genuine consent of the colonial
population, no enterprise on which the

Ob the 7ih of this month the King of Denmark
ontracted h morganatic marriage with Lola Kasnut-sen.
' The marriage was celebrated by the
fohop of JutUnd. Miille. Katmutsen was fornerly
a milliner, and was well known to the
-openhagen corps of (flicers; she then bet.me
acquainted with the King, and haa
ow bet 11 raised to the rank of Haroness
Jsnner. She has great influence over the King ;
ersons well informed state that the exercises her
rifluence in the revolutionary Danish sense, and
vaa the person that induced the King to make such
udden concessions to the Casino club in the Cotiihagen
revolution of 1^8. This marriage is so
nr important, that it confirms the extinction of the
oyal house of Denmark. On this ground the
ninistry oppoted this union till the London protocol
ras signed; this done, the marriage waa to the inerest

It is reported on authority, that Austria has invited
{ussia to join the Diet, but that the latter will
iot accept the invitation. There does not ap|>ear
o he ihe slightest chance of any kind of union or
maniroity being established amongst the various
tates of which this Empire is composed. It is
aid that mutters have reached euch a point of ill
relirg and diametrically opposing controversy beween
the Pnwsian end Austrian cabinets, that unesg
one or the other retract or modify their "preensions,"
there can be no egress save through the
nedium of complete abniption. This may not
fad to war, but meantime both parties stand upon
he roof of a powder magazine, which the slightest
ccident may cause to explode, as did the laboraory
at Rensbury, but with consequences a million
imes more disastrous. It is not in the |>ower of
nan to predict the issue. All that can be done is
o point out the perilous condition to which affairs
iave been brought by adherence to reciprocal "preennoiis,"and
es|>ecially by precocious declarations
in the part of Prussia, which bind her so strin
ncontiettncy, and even peril to herself at home,

The speech of the President of the republic, at

Ihc Tour of the French Presidents
(From the L?idoa Timra. Aug. ltf ]
The joutney of the President of the French
republic through the departments of Hurguidy
and eastern France is certainly the most
singular manifestation of his personal influence
and position which lus been given since
he assumed the executive government of the
republic. The cities chosen for his first appearance
in the provinces were notoriously ill-affecttd
to his government, and were snp|>osed to be
those in which the Red Republic has the greatest
number of passionate adherents. Several of these
districts are still under martial law; the National
Guard hHS been dissolved in some them for its revolutionsry
tendencies ;and they have for the most
part returted intra republican members to die Assembly.
tUut when an attempt was made at L>ijon,
at Montbsrd, and at Chalcns on the Saone to interrupt
the chorus of popular acclamation, it
was scon evident that whilst 'a band of
disorderly fellows were shouting forrepublican
uibtituioRS, the mxss cf the people bad
concf ntraied their interest and affection on the
nibti whom they were assembled to welcome and
applaud. Accoidingly, nothing could be more unlike
the modest journey of the Chief Magistrate of
a commonwealth, and nothing could more nearly
approach the splendor of au im|>erial progress.
Lveiy where the recollections of the empire and the
Emperor Napoleon are revived and |>araded before
the people. Here a monument is to be visited with
Folemmty, representing the illustrious captain on a
sham St. Helens, with the exquisite pathos of a
French inscription?
" To Napolsuo, Koiiot. a Grccaditr ?f Elba "
There a city was reminded that the great Emperor
had enriched its armonal beatings with the star of
the Legion of Honor. When the health of the
Piesident whs proposed by the Prefect ot Magon,
it was preceded by the "glorious and immortal
memoiy" cf the uncle, and wound up in honor of
" his worthy and popular heir?Louis Napoleon."
The Ptince, as he was styled by the more ardent
w orshippers of the rising sun, received all these
honors as due neither to himself nor to his nreseut

expression is seldom heard,) but to the glory of Ins

the Grenadier oi JuiU, f?F ?n amnesty to one of
his particular friends, which Louis Napoleuii said
he w as constitutionally unable to grant without the

deprecates a roupi/'tlal or u revolution, even to es

but an ( cent Mrp by step from the rank of I'reaident
to the distant grandeur of the Empire, would
probably ronniund the support of the people. For
if these chang'-s appear to^be dilricult and dangerous.
since they imply a change in the constitution
of 1SIH, it must be borne in mind that the inevitable
aeration of that constirution is still more

From Bombay we received a confirmation of the
report that Sir Charles Napier had resigned, on account
of the disputes with the Earl of l)aihousie.
Sir Charles and the Governor were at Simla, and
the forrner would set out on his return in October.
The Earl's health had much improved. Affairs in
the Punjaub were quiet, but executions were very
numerous at Lahore. A i-epoy had been shot by
the Afleedees; ln<t there was no proof that any of
the ehitfs were accessory to these acts of individual
aggression, and the communication through
their country continued uninterrupted. A plot had
been discovered to assassinate three British officers
whilst travelling from Peshawur to Kohat.
Thirty-nine Seikh prisoners had attempted to master
the vcbkcI conveying them down the Ganges.
They seized the murkets of the guard appointed over
them, and tired at every white man they saw,
hilling two or three, ard wounding about the same
number. Two of the Seikhs hit victims to their
own designs. The mutineers had possession of
the vetfcei for some time, and, having obtained
some boats from the shore, succeeded in effecting
their escnpe ; but before many hours elapsed, several
of iliem were reiaken and placed in more secure
custody. Frauds oh the military fund to a
considerable extent hud been discovered, arising,
from a defective way of keeping the aecounts.
The tecretary and the auditor had been, dismissed.

having buMaineo, without loss, a cannonade of
twenty-seven hour*, during wiiich they ki41ed sorm
lifteeu or tweniv of tlieir assailants, evacuated
their fortress, on condition that they should receive
the i mount of their claims and he exempted
frcni all punishment on account of their wild way of

of Elicopoor, had defeated the force wluch his
lord had unjutiiy 8<it against him to diwposses'
him of hi* Jjicletrs.
Accounts frtrn China of the 22d June announce
the arrival of the new Portuguese governor at
Macao, with a small military ?nd naval force, and
state that, according to 'he accredited report, the
trhflic in opium whs about to be realized, with
the consent of the new limj-eror. Some doubt,
however, still exi -th on this point. Several deatht'
had occurred amongst the European soldiers,

we are not surprised at, considering the prevalence
of blight among all the earlier .-oris of wheat, ard

to sj<eak josttively as to the extent of the

enabled to collect, we are of opinion tint wheat
will prove less productive than in moderately good
aveiage seasons, and th.tt a considerable proportion
will be of coarse uality. This will orove a heavy
trial to our fanners, as there exists little prnepect
of the value of the article advancing, so as to cover
