Mataximum, Mexiso, April 16. 1840. Mtral Effects of tie Revolution?Imliffnatum of the Clergy? Something New for MuUmorot?Mcutacre of Notions, <#f. By why ef Vara Craa you have doubtless recn red lull parflsular* of the capture of Puebla by the President Snbstitute, as also of tho very patriotic manner is which he hi* applied to the vanquished the fourth article ?f the capitulation of Puebla. There is oe-tainly a vast deal of difference between figuring in the army ae g?oe aala and colonels, and having to aerve In lte ranks, a* In oaae, aa eommon soldiers. To*' horde of trait're i the r'gbte and liberties of poor Mex'C) certainly I It, and the moral effect will be most beneficial. Let mc call your attention to one fact reepecting the ?abnWon vhieh has just been so completely destroyed, and It Is this: that, In consequence of the late law regu lating the administration of justice, the military, ae aleo the clergy, were deprived of their fuerot, or privileges, which exempted them from being tried by the common law tribunals of the oonntry. The immediate ie?att was ? general outcry raised, by the clergy particularly, against It, who. headed by the Archbishop and Bishops roundly asserted that they would not obey it unless com ?ended by the Pope of Rome to do so. They all p-o teeted, but the government stood firm as adamant. The protests, published and circulated under the humble name of "Pastoral Letters," were inflammatory precia nations intended to cause a rebellion against the g , rem nant. They had the desired effect, and the result was Mm treasons oommi.ted by I'raga, iiaro, Oastillo, Gui tian, and some tw enty other generals, aided and assisted by the curate of the village of /.aoapoextla. They took possession of Puebla; taev declared a war iu favor of the ?acred religion of the country: they appealed to the Maatioism of the people: they collected In the city soma ?even thousand combatants; tbey organized ba.talions with the sacrll gious Dame of "Sacred Legions," and de fled toe power of the government scarcely orgsn'zed. The chief magistrate appealed directly to the pcp:e, and the National Guards were hood In the field. A body of some 13.000 men, rank and tile, approached Puebla, and defeated the rebels In several engagements before the Anal surrender of the place. The victory was most com plete and the remnants of Santa Anna's army completely annihi'ated. never again to be the oppressors of the country. These facts show that tbe fanaticism so much spoken of as exisclcg in Mexico is not halt as much as a super filial observer would suppose, and I appeal to tbe genuine history of this last rebellion to corroborate my aeeerlion. ? A oommittee, appointed by the city authorities, left here < n the 9th instant, to go to Tacpico and request tbe Governor to a?sume the responsibility of docla ing 'his city a port of deposit, ami afterwards request the general government to sanction tbe measure. I scarcely b'l'eve that his Uxoailency will "assume the resnonsibill y," a la Jackson howeve- great may be his wishes ta favor us, who would thankfully receive any small favors, calcula ted. like the measure propised, to advance our p-cuntary Interests. He rniy do it. and I nope I am mistaken. Among others who lately lsft this place was Colonel Garcia, who commands < n this line. He went to Tamp co In see the Governor about mtiinry arrangements on this Iron tier. The Lipao Indians, who latelv committed dep-edations an the Texas side of the river, h?ve been soundly punish ed by Governor Vidaurri's forces, who ba?? captured aimos. the whole tribe, the mosi of wnich were killed be fore they reached Monterey. The squaws ki ted their yourg ones and in the attempt they made to escape oae Indian ai ne stood his ground against one hundred and ?event -five men, until he was shot to pieces. The energy and activity with which Gov. Vidaurri's forces pursue and punish "the Indians prove the sincerity ?t bis in entions to preserve good neighborhood with onr friends on the Texas side of the river.

Emigrants coming in oommence work at onoe, at fair remunerative prices. South Carolina has ?pened the ball by sending to ue, already, tome sixty truebearted men, and one hundred more are on the way, and are lotked for at our place on the next boat. Be ?ides these, a party < f one or two hundred have gone up the Kama- river to settle. They aU come well armed, to help support the laws, it need be. Many of them are men of weal h. who bring their slaves with them. Taey consider that upon a t.rm in Kansas they can derive a larger proCt icf tnvir labor than on a Southern plantation. We hear of parties from almost every Southern State alieacy on the way, and of course give them a heirty wele<me ae they amve. Most ol them get claims, acd many will m tae good crops the present season. The Topeka Legislature adjourned as soon as organized, be eanse the memtern would otherwi e have been arrested and arraigned for blah treason.

In this case, as in other outrages upon tbe whites by these Indians, it is presu nei to be the work of a class of white men who. leaving their native country for the country's good and lo avoic the sword of justice, have taken refuge amongst tbe Indians, and, in a Hplrit i f revenge for their own tieatmeut, endeavor te exci'e their red brethren to the commissi in of deeds for which they are now about to be punisned.

[From the London Times, April 16.] The toll' wing mercantile letter, by the Brazil mall, gives the latest aesount of the position of ths republic* of Montevideo ard Bu*noa AyreB. In Montevideo the p>-?. sicentialelection has terminated favorably, and to -.r* seems to te some prospect of a crmpaiatlvely hone-' ad* mlLHtrat <-n; but the clalme of the English merch.uis In BODnrc'ioo with the b an guaranteed by the BriUsh government are etill evaded, arut uM probably nea>tiUUt &tr<myer measures than have yet breri resorted to. At Buenoe Ayres. pre gress is cheeked by the ferocity of the lndia.es, which is alieg?d to be stlmmated by the partisans of the ex-Dictator Rosas:? Montevideo, March I, io50. The Presidential election came off on the let lost., and lion Gabriel 1'ereira is now the President of thi< republic tor the ensuing fiur years. Bis compe'itor was General Cesar Dias, who was supported by ths rads. Age i ? i drew his pretensions, as his friends were principally c > u poeed of tbe moderate party, who in such times have ct minished Influence. Although 1'ereira is a man of no gr> at C pac ty, he has character. With a full allowance 01 ? e prejadiet* appertaluirg to his race, he is hoaeat, possesse a will of his own, verging on obsti nacy. and, being rich, it may fairly be j e su.ned be has not aeumad office to fill hii private exchequer But. although the elec ion has resul ed ?o favorably, It must be ooniessed It waa not acoomoit-t- 1 in a perfectly free manner. Flores and Oribe?the r. mer under the title of "General de Armas''?had vi.tu ally the ea'ire direction of public affairs. Thev oUec'.ed and armed ail the men they could get together, under the pretence of preserving order and securing freedom of election. These alarming and arbitrary proceeding! etlrred up a vr Jent opposition, which, however, was on.y made spparent in tbe newspapers. They were uncea singly ec'ive, and to k advantage of tMf position to plunder every dollar that same into the treasury, be sides foresiaiUng ?very source of revenue for m nthst ) come. Fortuta'eiv there was no fighting. The na v President has app inted Dr. Ellauri hi- Minister for Gov ernment and Foreign Affairs, and Dr. Garcia, Minister of Finance. Tne post of Minister <d War is to be suppresses and a great number of employes in all departments will be dispensed with. H? has expreesec his determination to reduce sxpen-ea to the lowest pcint possible, and to extract from each source of revenue the utmost it is ca pab'e tf ] lairing. For ibis latter purpose, one of hie earliest measures will, it Is said, be to farm the custom house duties with 1 he administration, as was d .ne during the sisge. For the greater part of that period he was Chairman of the Committee of Management, and is tbereiore, from experience, acquainted with the supericr customs a< ministration of the merchants. The arraigement made by this government with Mr. Thornton, her Majesty's Charge d'atfairee, last January, for the settlement of the guaranteed loan and other Bri tish claims, ha?. as was foreseen, not been fulfilled, an 1 be has, In conformity with one or tbe conditions of that arrangement, declared It aullptni^vofd. He has now de manded that tbe administration of the customs should be eelivered over to tbe loan claimants, woo are virtual ly entitled to it by toe terms or their oootraet, guaranteed by tbe British Plenipotentiary In 1845. No answer has been returned at preseot, bnt it is expect ed the demand will he resisted, and we all beile*e that nothing but an exbiti'ion of foroe, by which it may tie understood our governmental* in earnest, will be effectual. It is whispend tnat tola government, intend sending to Ecgland a special envoy to induce tbe British and French governments to torego tbe pressure of their demands. All this, of course, is to stave off the evil day; bui I do not believe Mr. Thornton wi*l be imposed upm so easily. He understands tne character of these people thoroughly, ana we KcgLish merchants are well corneal to have so indefatigable and respectable a representative of her Ma jesty's government.

A year since 1 ordered Brevet Major Heller, with about 160 rank and tile, to go ai fer as Fort Boise to give pro tect!, n to en igran a going to Oregon and Washli gtou Territories, and to demand the murderers of some twelve or thirteen emigrants near that place the year before. The major no' only want to Fort'Arise but one hun dred ai d fifty mil?a oeyonc. He remained in that neotion ol eocutry until n<ar theeirse of September. I806 when he re nrned to his post at the Da le-, having previously captured and executed a number of the Indians concerned in tbe murders above allnoed to. Shoitly alter his re'urn, and early In October, he was called on by Major Rains to execute a similar mission , against the Yaaima Indiana, occupying a portion of the conn ry east of the Cascade range of m* un sins. It is said that the Yakiniaa, having become dissatisfied with the treaty made with them the euiuu er belore sy Gov. Stevens, determined on war. This waa hastened, as it would tee in, by some tnjns'i forcibly carrying away anu ill treating some Yakima squaws. Tie Yakima*,aecotdrng to '.heir own story, complained of this wroi g to A. J. Boion, anb-Indian agent, who was at the time in tbe Yakima country, and demanded re dress. An altercation tot k place, when the Indians threatened reverge. The agent in 'urn threatened it they executed their intentions, to send afftinst them the troops of 'he I nited States. It was under such circum stances that the agent and the Indians separated. The former, however, was followed and overtaken by the Ya kimas. when they cemardtd to mow if he intended to send the troops of tbe l>n<1ed S'aies against them ? On answering them in the affirmative, as lhe Indians say, they killed him, and afterwards, as reported, some miners < n their way to tbe Uoiville mines. On this information belrg conveyed to Major Reins, Brevet Major Heller was directed toproeeed against the Yaiimas to chaHtlsethem and demard the mutoerera of 'hesgent, Bolon. Accord tng'y; with od* hundred and four rank and tile, he pro c-edea on bia mission, but without tbe precautions ne tess?ry .gainst savage warfare. About six y miles from the Dalles, on emerging from a deep ravioe, he found himself, as he reports, confronted by 1,600 Indians. Af ter losing two men killed snl some thirten or fourteen *' untied, ote mortally, he ?scaped from his perilous mm 'lition to an eminence on wni-ih was neither woid, waier nor grass. He reported that he was surrounded b? In oiens, and asked tor ? thousand men to relieve him This was communicated to the Dalles by a person wno succeeded in passing the Indians without being ob served. Relief was immediately ordered. In the uican Hme. after remeinftg i-n the hill thirty-slx or forty hours, water beirg inoispensable both to men and ani mals. the M?j. r dc'crmited to for:e bis way lo water. He broke up bis eccampment anc commenced his march for the stream, in his front. He met with do resist ance. and after allaying the thirst tf his men, horses ann mniet, he commenced his march towards the DsUe?. In his eTort to make good bis retgeat he berame aepa rated from his rear guard, 'he front and rear 'akiug dill* rent trails The guard, supposing that it was following the from of the column, cnnticutu its ma'ch towards ths Dalles wibout inierftrence or molestation from tne Indians. This left lhe Major wiih 00.v forty effective men and the wounded and haggige. With this amah force he succeeded in making g od his retreat, followed two days and nights by 1,600 Indians I think the nutn ber greatly exaggerated. However this may oe, under tihe circuri'itances 1 aid n't, consider snsi an enemy greatly to be dreaded. The repulse ot Major flaller created great excitement and alarm throughout Oregon and Wa-h'rg un lest all tne lndiyi iribes in the Territo ri's ihouJQ at once combine and comedown upon the set tlements. As soon as I was informed of Maj t Haller's de'eat, I ordeind all the disposable troops at my command to the seat of war, and I foil iwed. At the .same time I called upon tbe 1'nited States government tor at leas an addi lioLai regiment. This was promptly responced to, and lhe 9th regiment of infantry arrived early in January, but, owiDg to tbe unusuahy severe winter, could n it enter upon a winter's campaign. In the meantime Maj >r Kaics, who bad authority for such purposes, mare pre pa.ation for a seaend expedition against the Vaklmas. He mustered, with tbe reinforcements which I sent him, five kuncred regulars, wiih three mountain-hiwiizers besices other artilery; an ample for-e, if properly di reeled, to have defeated all the Indians In the country, lhe Major, however, partaking somewnat of the alarm pervacing the country, insreased aod stimulated by poli tical demagegues, eaded on acting Governor Mason for two companies of v lun eers, waieh was promptly and fa vorably resp mded to; and uoon Governor Carry, oi Ore goD, for tour com par eg, which be refused, because as be said, the 0.egcui?ui would not serve under United States (fficers. At the same time he called Into the Tent torial service two mounted regiments?one to serve against tbe Incfans In Washii gVn Territory, anil theothersgiins' tbe Indians in Southern Oregon. Of the f.rmer, no part ci it, in any sense of the term, war necessary to defend the inbabi.ants of Oregon against tbe Indians in Wash irgton rerri-orv, ?tPt of the C&fc&<1? mountains, from w; om they had no dsrger whatever to apprehend. Msj >r Idntf. having c mpleted his preparations, with 350 re gulare and three mountain howitzers, set out about the 1st oi November f r the Yakima c untry, followed by slv fcompanies of Governor Cutrj'a troopg, commanded by Col.

(no doubt a very capable and enter prising officer), and about seventy miles from the Dalle.-, met :he Yakicas, who. after several skirmishes, without any loss on cither side, excepting one Indian killed and scalped by an Indian who accompanied the troops of Major Rains, fled ever the moun'alns to the Yakima nver, about icriy milea distant; but in consequence of tbe snow, then fast failing, being several teet deep on tbe intervening mountains, the Major could not fol lov?at ,'esst. be so reported. He there! re commenced his return, havinglott fifiy-fjur animals, captured by the Inr.ians. but not until the volunteers, nutortunate lv. bad destroyed the A'ahr.um mission?an imp-irian*' position, anc one which ought to have bsen occupied by lhe Mij'r. On bis return he crossed mcun ains vhlch be bad pitviousiy paseed, which were eovered with mow from two to five feet deep. His command was oreered to 'he Dalles, and he reported to me lu ferstm on the 24th ot November. I arrive! on 'ha 7th, havicg bten detained on the passage from n Francisco neven days, owing to gales, stcrms eud a fire, which crippled tbe steamer on board of wh'ch I was a jasseDjer, by which she came very near be . g loat. Anxtcua to establish a post at Walia Walla in order to prevent what followed?a war against the Walla Wallas ty the troops of Governor Carry?I on'eied a cri tipal inspection ot ail the trcops and animals, wh-. it was discovered that many cf tho solciers were wit1 out shoes and proper clothing for the season; and that all the animals, with very few exceptions, owing to constant service during the summer and tall, and espec'ally in tbe last two expediti. na of Majors Il&lns and Mailer were recdend unfit for service. I bad determined, however if i: waa powible, to take posses.ion of tbe Watla Walla ceuntry before winter had fairly csmmeuced. not be cause I oensideeed It in any respect necessarv for the defence or protection ot the inhabitants o' Oregon or Washington Territory. The Indians in thai region, two Hundred miles distant, could not pass the Cascade range of mountains, iben covered with several feet cf snow. Tie tnly route by wNsh they ecu'd reach the settlemrnta of Oregon was by tbe Dai es, where we had a snffi jient regulaj force to repel all the Indian* In Washington Territory. My object was simp'y to '.vwawe these tribes and to prevent them from uni kg wi'h tffirlhkimas, tbe authors of tne war. They tad not yet taken part in the war, at least they had noc 'ben killed a white man. To accomplish my purpose no time was to be iost. Accoroirg y I oireet-d Major Cress chief quartermaster in my stall, 10 procure, if practicable, the mtana cf transportation. This coulo not be obtain ed in Oiegon or Wasbirgton without jrsat delay and at sn entunc us expense, which the state of the waj did not c*ll tor, cwing to tbe resources of tbe country being very much exhaus ed by tbe targe requiaitiona uf Governor Curry >0 Btout his several expeditions. Tais compelled me to seek elsewhere f ?r means ol' transportati ns. Hence 1 iireeted Major Cress to have wagons, horses and mnlee sent from Benicta, and boats and lorage from San Fran cisco to Vancouver. Before the animala, Ac. arrived the river Colombia froxe over. This cnt oil all commu ntcatioa with tbe Dniiea and the Incian conn try eaatof 'he Cateade mountaina. For three weeks I waa ice bout d, tot being able to communicate with the Dalles or Ssn rmncieeo. Gov Cnrry, however, had brought two regimenta of mounted men in tbe field at an enormous expense. No thing btd jet oeew accomplished by them, and certainly rot by the regiment ipteoced to operate against the Indians in WieringtonTerritory. Something had to be done. A fignt with th? Iidians, no matter whe her fHends or enen les, was indispensable to excite the sympa'by of the nation, and especial y Congress, or the propriety of payiLg e ntrihntloos, so profusely levied on the people ol i regon, mfgnt be questi ned. Accordingly Col. Ne sn ith whs ordered by Gov. Curry with his command to march against 'he Walla-Wshas, where Major Chlnn, wiih tour companies had been previously ordered. On an inspection of the horses of the Colonel's command, although but twenty days in the field, tbey were pro nounced unfit tor that service.

F-nch have been tbe reaulta of oie of the most unwise, utiu?ee**ary, and extravagant expedi lone ewer ftttei out in the United share*, aid 'or no other reason than to plunder ibe treasury of the United States ai-d to political capital tor somebody. It eouM not have been projected for the deft nee of tbe inhabitant* of Oreg nor for the protection ot O egonlar* In Washington ter rlury, lor none retired tbsie. What, then, e >uld ha ve been the objee.V Nothing but a crus.de sgaiust the In diana, and a long war to enrieb the oountry. Il auch waa not the obj.et, G v. Currv, instead of sending nht tro p* against the Indians In Washington Territory, and beyond his jurisdiction, would have sent all of them to Si at tier n Oregon, where ths war raged, and mwhers else in his Teriitory. The Ori goo tans say thai the war 'is a god send to the country." It would, however, appear from the GoTsrnor s proeia matlon that he did send a regiment to Sou'hern Oregon ; but. fr< m all tbe tbtbimation 1 have received from chat feotion ol country, they ha*e been ot little or no service, bo 'bt si giving protectlsn to tbe Inhabitants; and yet tne war has been carried on between ths volunteers and the Indians in a most signally barbarous and ssvagv manner. My information Is derived from citizen* ami. regular officers under my command, and not from any of ths eivil or military lunctionarles of the Territory or Orsgon. I have never been informed by any one, m>teveu by the Governor, of ihe mibtary wants of the Territory. R*bs* never called on me far troops to defend it or o protect tbe ir habitants from savage barbarity although be bss, as it would appear, purposely avoided all com munication with n e on the subject. 1 have not been un mindful of tbe condition and wants of the Territory. I have not failed, as far ss It was In my power, to defeud ,nd protect such pans as were exposed and usaliel bv the Indians, and 1 have no doubt but for tne lndworimi nste warfare cenied on against them, and the massacres of several parties of friendly Indians by the troops o Gov Cut ry, the wsr would have long since been brought to a close in Oregon- Although the Indians are retails ling with fearful vengeance on innocent citizens tor the murder in Ooiober last, by Major Lupton and his party ot twenty five friendly Indions, eighteen of whom were women and children, all g< log to the military reservation at Fort Lane for protection; and notwithstanding the massacres cn the 23d and 24th Dessmber last, when volun teers murdered about forty unarmed friendly Indians, be longing te tbe band of tbe chief Jake who was among the killed. 1 think, if the volunteers, who expect to be paid largely fcr their services, were withdrawn, and private war urt vented. I could soon end he war in Bogus River Valley knd inceed throughout Oregon and Washington; but the determination of the Oregonians to ex erminate the In dians, whioh I am wholly opposed to, if not discounte nanced bv tbe United States government, may prolong the war almost Inde finitely. Another Florida war mat be had in Rogue Ri?cr Valley, owing to the mountainous charac ter of the oountry. The same remark will apply to Puget Sound, where it is extremely difficult to follow the In dians in the dense forests of that region. Vet, by a pro per and judicious course, the war may be brought to a close, when, by establishing posts at proper points, a re currence of the past might, be prevented; but to do this, I repeat the extermination ot ths Indians should be aban doned. No doubt they could be ex'.e-minateJ, but it would cost from fifty to one hundred milli >ns of dollars, besides thousands ot innocent and valuable lives. Still, with all the difficulties presented, and staring us in the face, I do not despair. Wi h eigut companies of regular trcops in Rogue River Valley, and auotaer on the way, with not to exceed two hundred warriors in arms, in creased to that number by the barbarous conduc' ot the volunteers towaros the friendly Indians, and seven com panies in Tuget JrcuDd, where there are not over one hundred and fiftv in arms aeainst the whltee, command ed by active, vigilant and Intelligent officers, I cannot hut hope that the war in those two sections will soon be bronglit to a close, when we will meet with no difficulty in blicgirg the Indians to terms east of the Caecads range ot mountains. To show how determined the people of Oregon are to exterminate ihe Indians, it is enly necessary to represent their conduct towarcs tour hundred friend-y Inlians waiting on the military reserve at Fort Lane to be eon ducteu to the coast range reservation. Capt. Fmlth commanding at that post, with two companies of regu lars, reported to mo that it took a large par* of his ooirmat d to pi?vent the ci'izrna niiirrieriEg those four hundred Indians. I have been In firmed by those whose character for truth and veracity is not to be questioned that meetings of the cit zens of Oregon had been held, when it was resolved if tbe attempt, wa- made to oonduot those Izduns to the ccast reserve, they wculd not only kill them, on', all who mlpht accompany them. After tbe Indiais recently start ed for the reserve, although escorted by over 100 soldiers, they were followed by a citizen, who shot one i f the In cisns, declaring at the same time he intended to follow them and kill all he coold. Many and similar cases hav< been reported. I regret that I am compelled to say thai such conduct is too mush encoarsged by persons h tiding high tfliees under the government of the United states, and becanse I bave opposed this Inhuman and barbarous prae'lee, and the wholesale plundering of the treasury of the United States, which there is no circumstance* to ju?_ tify, I have been cenounced by the Governors of both Territories and the Legislature of Oregon. The latter bas tiemanced of the Pruaicent of the I nited States my removal from the command of the Pacific department To discover how much truth is contained in tte charges pren n'ed against me in the memrrisl to the President it will enly he necessary to read thiscommun'cation. i am. however, eurprbed to tiid that tbe L?|iisla*.ure does njt Know tbe bouudaiiei ot its own Territory. WnUa;Walla is in Washington and not in Oregon Territory. No cli ztne were ih<-re except two or three beeiaee thoHe attach ed,:cr had been attached, to the Hudson B?y Company, and tbeee were mostly hal'-breeds or Canadians. It is well known that they are In no danger o' being killed "by tlelntians. AH not Americans, or Boston*, as the In dians call tlem. not found in arms against them are respected, at least tbey are in no daDger ot being ai lei ^IrMroDdu&ion, it only remains for me ?o notioe a letter est it should cieate false impiesai ns and mislead ihe public, cf I. J. Steven*, Governor of Washington lurrl ? cry daud tbs 8th of March. 18?6, and pub isoed in has Franciseo. The Governor, in his letter of appeal to the citiwm* of Fan Francisco, would induce them to believe that there were not to exceed 600 regulars in \\ ashlngton and Oregi n, and that there were but four compinies of rfRTilars a'. ODe point in l'nget Sound. At the rate of aii* lstisr there were five companies of regular* actively ope retire *gainst less than Two hundred warriors in a-ms against the whites, anS ftx days cr)^n'ens, fcfiO strong, uicer tbe direction of Lieut. Col-Cyy Major Gar nelt. At the date ot hia letter, insteadL of 900, as he asserts, there wee 1,900 regulars, and etthistiure 2 000. Of the thirty-three companies in the Pacific ce partment twenty-seven & e rperating in Oregonan Wailiizgton, distributed aa follows, viz: Nine in South ern oregm, 700 atrcrg actively 0[>erating against c-r tainly not to exceed 200 warriors in arms ??*<>>? t e whites; seven conrpanie*. *a btfore mentioned, In lug - Sound, with less than 200 waniors in arms against the u. one eompany at Vanvouver and ten companies^ at tut Tia'lca. urder tbe command of Col. George Wright of a 9th infantry. Tbe latter will be efficiently and I trust successfully employed against tbe Iadivns eait of th< Cascade rarge of mountains, as soon " permit, that if, a* aeon as grass can be had to support animals?a teree amply sufficient to terminate the war in all parts of tbe two Territories, and after ward - to prevent past occurrences, if the volunteers could be witndrawn' and private war prevented; bat as Icng as Governors of Territories make war and exercise powers, *? J l,eT?> .. HJ" kn< wn to the President of the Lnited States, and individ ual* raise volunteers and make war on the Indians when ever they please, and Congress will pay the expend, so lorg we will have war in Washington and Oregon Terri t< rfea. It is said by intelligent men that the expense of Gov. Curry's army will amount in snip Irom to four mil lima ol dollar*. If Congress should f. otthe Mil. ?me Governor of another Territory will make a bill ot ten mi Hons of dollars. I do not know how the question will he consi- ered. One tbirg, however, is certain, that It is an example which, If countenanced by the I nlted 3Utw go vern? nt, may, when least expected, lead to no lees am banassing than disastrous results.

The Rise of the Dutch Repub lic. A lilstorv. By .lobn l othrop Motley. 3 vols., 8vo., mus lin, fci; sheep, ft. To; bsir eslf ei ra. $8 25. [Firm the Westminster Quarterly teriew, for April.] A serious chairn In Kngllsh historical literature his been very remarkably filled. A history as complete as geulut and It duitrv ran make it new lies betore us ot the first twenty j ears of the revolt of the United Provlroes. H has been the result ot many years of silent, thoughtful, unobtrusive labor, and unless we are stracgelv mistaken, unless we are our selves altogether unfit for this offiee of criMelstog which we have here nndertsken, the book Is one which will lake its place among toe lineet bistortea of this or any othar language. *11 the essentials of a great writer Mr. Motlev eminent y poa seises. His mind is broad, his Industry unwearied. In power of uiamatlc description no modern historian, except, perhaps, Mr. Carlyle, surpasses him; and In analyst' ef character he is elaborate and dlsiiret. His principles are those of honest love for all which Is gocd ard admirable In human character when ever he finds It, wh'ls he unaffectedly hates ojpreetlou and despises selfishness with all his heart. The work consists ot three volumes, each contalnlrg nearly fiOO pages, and the mat ter liotily compresied within this large oompass by the ela borate finish of the style. We now take our leave of Mr. Mot ley. Si airing him only to swept ourlbeartv thanks for these vo lumes, which, we trust. wLl soon take their place In every Ergllfh library. Ot bis axtccedents we know nothing. Ifhe has previously appeared before the publto, his reputation has noterosred the Atlantic. It will not be so now. We believe that we may promise b<m as warm a welcome among our selves sa be will reeel?e even In America; that his plaee will be at snce c needed to htm among the first historians In our common laEgusge. it.
