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,

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

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.

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

game of killing the measure through its heat friends,

such wicked meuns, the Globe la too well aware of

it then seeking, by forever linking these vile charges
of disunion to every attempt to acquire Texas, to or- .

which i? exclusively and permanently under
tie editorial control of T. H AR THUR, believe
that they can ull. r to the public moat substantial
claims tu patronage. The first and second voluniee
have been acknowledged on all hand* to be equal,and,
in many respects, superior, in character,strength,interest
and atlraclivpiieos, lo anv of the luagaz in a issued.
The aim of the fcalilor la a high one. lie repudiates
the long prevalent system of baaing hla work upon
the reputation of contributors, whose article', no mat

winch la not eicellent in Itself. The source
from which an article cornea is secondary?ns merits
always primary, duel) a rule, strictly carriod out,
must give character to any work It has given "Arthur's
Magazine" a character already acknowledged
in all reafieciahle quartern where it has lieeo received.
Among the irieihaustihle sources lhal open up lo the
hands oi a literary caterer, Uermaii and French Literature
oiler a wide held tor selec ion. Into this icgi >n,
with an ad tuira h|e corps of Translators, We are steadily
penetrating, astonished at every step by ihe riches we
on el EaoccialW M this the case in Lileiatuie Al
ready we have givrl) >oun splendid articles from the
German, brim full of pure tr jths, end tumble illus
trallon* of Hie power uf goodness. 'Silent Love,'
"Tb? Governor and fit* Successors," "The Unknown
Patient," ' The Russian Ptince," "The Privy Counsellor,"
die. Ac., all who have read will reineint>er
From the French we have alsi gl'eVl uiany fir*lrate
article*. "The P. rpleled Cover* Iroui Mad
ante de Gentis, also, "'1 h.r Lesson of Misfortune,"
and "The Error of a Good Father," from Marinontel,
with line tale- from Umoai, LacroiX, Nodler, llalxao,
and uiher author*of celebrity.
.'n seleating from the French, our translators are
guided by a eiricl regard tu purity and excellence.
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
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.
" Arthur's Magazine" will eontain 48 pages of read
