We are indebted lo the courtesy of Mr. Tripler, a pssirnger in the schooner K A Brown, arrived yesterday irons Havaua, lor the information winch follows. Mr. T. left Vera Cruz for I lav ma on the 3d mat., in the Br. mail steamer Dee, which ve-sel reached Havana on the 1th insl. At the last accounts Santa Anna was at San Martin de Sesmolara, about four leagues from Puebla, w ith a force of about 6,001) men, mostly mounted on horses taken from the inhabitants. flan. Parades being in elnee pursuit, mi an army ut 3,000 men, but maims ivri mg and avoiding a conflict, as a mallei of polic), an Santa Anna'* forces were daily decreasing, on arconnl of insertions from hi* ranks, while Gen. P. was rapidly acquiring strength t he city of Mexico had been well fortified, and every precaution taken to prevent or repel an a*isult. The aqueduct* had been opened, and the mole which surrounds the city tilled with water, and there was a force of ?ome 30,000 armed citizens prepared to defend it. At Vera Cruz, also, fortification* were in prices*, and the citizens were arn.ing 'i he steamer MtnltiMma left Vera Cruz a short time before the l>te, bound to Campeachy for troops, and reinforcementa were also expected from Alvarado and Tlscatalplan. A decree tiad bein issued by the Mexidan Congress declaring Santa Anna a traitor and an outlaw, and authorizing any who may meet with him to take his life. Measures had also been adopted to prevent his eacape, by guarding the different sea ports and other outlets, and it is believed that he must eventually Ire captured. A person named Arellano, an individual in the interest of 8anta Anna, with additional confidential correspondence, had been taken, and it was supposed he would be executed. Mr. Tripler slates that the whole country is in a slate of the utmost confusion?robberies of travellers were committed daily, and be himself was twice stripped of whatever was valuable about him m his progiewi through Mexico, but without any indignity being ofiered to his person. It is the opinion of Mr. T. from what he could learn, that the new govern stent would be as much if not more virulently opposed to Ihe annexation of Texas as the former, and 'date* that Americans are held in great abhorrence, and receive frequent insults at the hands of the Mexicans. A MONTH LATER FROM CHINA. The ship Paul Jones, Walkins, arrived at N. York on Sunday night, with advices from Canton to 1st b'toher, iuclusive. Messrs. Fletcher Webster and J. H. O'Donnell, of the American Embassy to China, came home in the Paul Jones. E. G. Tilton, U. S. .Xavy, aim w. 11 uruger, ui lien b..Uv passengers. The treaty between the United Slates and China, negotiated by Mr. Cusiiing, was approved ? by the Emperor, and went into operation at Canton oo the 23th September. The United States frigate Brandy wine, and United (States ship SI. Louis remained in the China seas, the former at Canton, and the latter on the Eaat coast.? The crews ot both were enjoying excellent health. The new crop of tea came in freely, and the anxiety of shippers to get borne their fresh cargoes, had caused an advance in freight. Full prices were being paid for new chops. Market buoyant. As (tie season advances, prices of l eas were expected to cotne down ; and even at our last dates holders evinced a disposition to relax in their demands. Chops that had been held at 41 taels could be bought for 36 on the sailing of the t'aul Jones.

The Emperor denounces him, and orders immediate punishment, unless the sum is handed over to the treasury. The magistrate was in prison. An examination of the students of the Imperial College had taken place at the city of Pekiu, at the Royal Castle, when immense numbers of honors were distributed. All the Manchoo (Tartar) youth who have attained to the raak of Keujin are to be lent to the Board of Officers to receive civil appointB.ents.

While the treaty was under considers-' Uou, It was i n outrage on ihe constitution lo acquire territory by treaty,?now that the treaty is out ol the question, it is unluwiul lo acquire it in any oilier wuy ! And yet this clique are Hie only true friends ul Texas All others are disuniotnets and trailois who talk about Texas, but desire only to dissolsc the lasilsdsrscy aud uiskr Mr. Calhoun Kuiperor' flow long is this paltry sla.Uling lo pass for stalesuiausliiu and patriotism? About a month since the Globe et pressed >he opinion that annexation would be defeated in the Senate I by the Wlnga, and 'hat It would not be carried until the l>eroocralic parly got the control of that body? a very indefinite adjournment of the question, to the arbitrament ol a must doubtful tribunal?as the | ci urae ul the Northern Ueuiocrala in the House shows The Gh.be in the mean lime is all lor Tex j as?but it cannot abide disuinoinsls they must be killed oil hist?the Democratic army must be paralyzed by intestine slilie, and when it la reduced to contemptible weakness by this process, then annexation shall be carried! Jual the game of the last session The tieaty could hare been carried, if the Globe and its clique had not treacherously thrown themselves in opposition to a measure they professed to favor. Then, a? now, at the critical uiomeui, It was taken with a violent bt uf hatred to disunion, under pretext of which it might assail Mr. Calhoun and deprive the treaty of that mighty moral support it would have had from the unanimous favor of the De I mocratic party?a moral force that the Whig party would have shrunk from facing Uuder this attack j the treaty fell?but the cause did not perish, 'the , people look it up?they forced the issue of Teias into the nominating convention, arid carried it . triumphantly at the Presidential election. The j Clamor of the Globe waa hushed before the mighty voice of the people. Now, however, as soon as the question coines again into the hands of poll ; licians and within reach of the wiles of intriguing leaders, we hear the old homilies on disunion The ' game of killing the measure through its heat friends, is again repealed. If the annexation 11 defeated by such wicked meuns, the Globe la too well aware of the xlurm uf mdignalion it will raise in the souih. Is , it then seeking, by forever linking these vile charges of disunion to every attempt to acquire Texas, to or- . ganize the north against the south, and by uniting the ; northern democracy with the whiga ? to leave the I south?rather force the south, to lake up and settle lor herself alone, the policy which her interests and her very salvation demand?against the combined \ hostility of all parties in the north?

None know lietler lliari thry do how much that is objectionable abounds III the light ll ersMirr of Ihls people, Bui, flowing along by the side of this impure current, is anuthei, as lucid and clear as crystal ? From this they dip up the bright waters arid present llirui to our lips. At this fountain, we shall continue to let our readers drink. But, in doing an, we shall not neglect the excellencies of our own native literature. This would he the wotsl of folly. Vet in doing this, we shall make no parade of names. The public are gelling to understand pretty clrarly h iw much this is worth, sod to discover that excellence is not always to lie found in the fugitive productions of writers who have done well in books Our Country is teeming with young genius, too often overshadowed and hidden by the successful, who possess not half then intrinsic worth, and whose writings exert n t half so healthy an influence. They are crowded from the path in whi h they are filled to Wj|k, and their merits kept out of sight by a few who have gained the public ear and rye, and who are kept before the public, not ao much on account of the superior excellence of what they are giving forth, as on account of trhul they hare dwu. To merit, wherever we find it, we will give the r ght hand of fel owship. We would not accept a poor article from the most celebrated writer in the country; but a good one, let it come from where it will, shall find a welcome. In all sources, at home and abroad, we shall seek I (if good, 'he "Up and (he beautiful. For nirne time, and with too much jus'ne?s in the allegation, our Msgaiinet have heen charged with being loo light and trashy. Thin fault we have from the fir?t vleadi. |y avoided. "ARTHUR'S MAGAZINE" will continue to eostsin a high character for excellence in all ita depar'menti. Something more than mere love talev will be given. Ita atoriea, while full of deep and abeorbing inter eat, or, sparkling with wit and ha|e py feelings, will have in tbein a aoul?a living toul of goodness and truth. Reviews, essays and sketches, with poetry that shall be truly called such, will be blended with them in just proportion. Thus much in regard to the literary department of our Magazine. Anothei matter claims our attention ?that 01 Pictoiial Embellishments. Custom rnd taste have rendered them indispensable in a literary work like ours. We shall not aland lo argue the matter with custom and taste, but proceed to open up our intentions on this head. First, then, we have determined to present the subscriber* to "ARTHUR'S MAGAZINE," during the year, with a novelty, of a highly attractive rharacter. No less than a series of Six Female Characters from Shakspeare! engraved on steel in a highly finished style. This Slutkspeare Gallery of Beauty will prei>ent imbodicd lo the eye, some of the noble bard's most beautiful creations of the mind, as well as one or two celebrated characters in history, around whom his magic l>cn has thrown a new charm. What lover of the Poet's immortal creations, will not be eager to secure this Splendid SERIES OF ENGRAVINGS?? N?t or,., vurelv. F.veiv niivvevvar nl'i? run, nf Shilii. peare, and whose library does not contain hi* works 1 will have, at mete nominal coat, six exquisite illustrations, hot to be obtainod in any other way. This is certainly a great desideratum. But, besides these beaulies from Sltakspeare, we are making arrangements to procure a seiies of female figures, far sutpasmng, in loveliness of form and face, and exquisite finish, any thing that has ypl appeared in any American -Magazine. Celebrated Views,in this and other countries, will also be a leading feature in our work. For the January number we shall give a highly wrought view of the Bridge of Doon, over which Tain O'dhanter fled in such hot haste from the kirk and the witches. This splendid steel plate will accompany the first of our Bhaks|>eare beauties, and will make that number of our work a highly attractive one, No less so will be that for February. Nor shall there he any falling off in the style of embellishment, or in the character ol the literary contents of the work. From the first, we have aimed at a gradual improvement. We do not issue one or two good numbeis, and then after our list of subscribers is filled up, fail off. But we endeavor to make every number better than the one that preceded it. Excellence, as we have lit fore said, iaour aim. , But bes des our Shakspeare Gallery, our Gallery of Female Beauty, our Celebrated Views, we shall introduce from time to time other attractions in the way of embellishments. In addition to the foregoing, there is yet another feature, no less than a new American Novel, fiom the pen of the Editor, which will he commenced in the January number, and continued until completed. This will be within the year, so that all who subscribe for the Magazine during 1815, will receive hi* new urnr k sKn h?.,u,l "R?ll M... tin," "Fanny Dale," "Insubordination," "Six Night* with I he Washingtoniens," "Sweetheart* and Wive*," Ac. Ac. from the pen of Mr. Arthur, need not he told that thin feature will be a leading one. In addition to lhis, Mr. Arthur will also continue to furnish for i's pages, bis ahorter stories, those (Stinted moral essays, told with so much skill, beauty, and power. The attractions of the Editor'* own pen, will, in fact, form a feature of peculiat interest to our work, which no other magazine can possess.? While to one or two other periodicals he furnishe* a story occasionally, each number of Ins own magaziie will contain many pages of his inimitable writings, and the whole work bear the impress of hia pure ia?te, and sound judgment. The style in which " Arthur's Magazine " is to be is?ued, will bo as beautiful as clear new tvpe, fine while paper, and a highly illuminated cover, (pionouneerl the chastest design that has yet appeared) can make it. Take it altogether, the publishers feel confident that, in regard to the quali'y of literary maiter, style of embellishments, appearance, and mechanical elocution, Arthur's Magazine will he unsurpassed by any other similar publication. This is not mere idle boast and vain, pretension.? No one who has taken the work through the first and sicond volumes will so drem it. Size of the Work.
