LATEST FROM MEXICO. Arrivals at New Orleans from Vera Cruz, are to the 22d. April, and from the city of Mexico to the 15th. Gen. Cadwallader and Mr Trist arriv ed in ,one of. the1 Yteatnera. According to the news -by' this arrival, the; Mexican Congress had not beea' able'to 'aiiemBIe a.Jjuoruin to do busi ness: A paper called tlie Free American, pub lished by an American, in Mexico, gives, as its opinion that the treaty Will not be ratified ; but there are more than two to one who believe otherwise ; and one of the best evidences, we presume, of the latter opinion, is the statement that the ' State of Mexico gives 102 votes out of 1GG. for Gen Ilerrera for President, who is known to be a pence roan, or at least is so con sidered. ' By the Charleston Courier's Express, we learn that dites have been received at New Orleans from Mexico, up to the 20th of April. At that time it w;,! staled that there lacked about 20 members of a quorum of the Mexican Congress ; but members were arriving at Queretaro every day, and some had left after waiting some time. Gen. Parede had not been arrested, althugh- the Government bad ordered the Governor xf San Luis to arrest hitn.- Mr Sevier and Mr Clifford, the Commissioners who took out the Treaty, were in Mexico, and had declared' that tFey should have very few words to say to the Government of Mexico, and those few words would be, that the treaty must be ratified quickly, if at all. Gen. Butler is re ported to have said that he will very soon be, either in Vera Cruz, on his evacuation march, or in Queretaro, to break up the present resting place of the Government. . The trial of the officers and men for breaking into a store to steal, and then killing the Clerk, is going on, but unfinished. The correspondent of the Picayune, writing from Mexico, says : The Court of Inquiry will be through with the evidence here this week, but if the information I have received be correct, it may be delayed to investigate another case. I am told, and I consider my authority good, that serious charges are to be preferr ed against. Gen. Scott by the Govern ment. You have doubtless heard that a coun cil of war was held when . the army was in Puebla, to debate the propriety of buvinx a peace, by advancing a certain sum of money Co Santa Anna. It is said that CJen. Scott, although the council of war decided against the plan, entered into negotiations with Santa Anna, through Mackintosh, to bribe him either into a treaty or not to oppose the advance of the American army upon the capital; that the sum. was agreed upon, and that ten thousand dollars were advanced as "earnest money." I cannot 1 . . il a rf"w . j . a ueueve mat uen. coit is guilty oi this, but that a charge to the effect 1 nave mentioned, or somewhat similar is to be made, the character and position of my informant leaves me no room to doubt. It is stated that several American officers have joined the Mexican army. I can only learn of one American officer who has gone from this line of the army toQure taro, a Lt. O'Sullivan, whowas promoted from the. ranks to a commission in one of the old Infantry regiments for his gallan try at Palo Alto and Resaca de la Palina. He resigned his commission some time ago, and it is believed went to Queretaro to join the Mexican army. Itis probable that many of the deserters from the ranks of our army, with the view of obtaining com missions in the Mexicans army, represent themselves on arriving at Queretaro, as having been officers. You will think the statement of your correspondent that several of these deser ters have been sent into the interior States to organize companies of Americans strange, but I am credibly informed that there are some six or eight hundred teamsters, dis charged soldiers and deserters scattered through the country, some idling and others at work in the factories, or engaged in other occupations. 1 he greater part of this number are at Guanajuato and Guadalajara-' The inhabitants of Zecualtepcc, at which place Gen. Lane had the fight with Jarauta, have petitioned General Butler to re munerate them for the losses suffered by them by the fight and the partial sacking Major Polk, now the senior officer of com mand engaged in the fight, in the absence of General Lane and Col. Hays, to inform him how far those people are deserving of remuneration. JVlaj.

" Nearly every house and store in the town hail articles in them, which bore evidence of their hav ing been robbed from the trains. Ameri can whiskey and American manufactured tobacco articles never used by Mexicans were found in the most of them, and, in others, goods of all descriptions marked to American and other merchants in this city. QcEUETAno, April 15, 1848. Itis generally' believed that Congress will meet after the Easter holidays, that is from the first to the fifth of next month. The army of reserve, and the munitions, have left here under Generals Bustatnentc and Minon, for San Luis Potosi, under the pretext of preserving order arid tranquili ty, which are threatened by the rising of the Indians of tlie Sierra Gordo. All the ppiiiwnj expressed up to this time by the members of the new Congress are in favor of peace. The stage whidi left this city for Guan ajuato yesterday was attack by a band of roooers about live miles trotn here. I lie passengers fired and killed one of the robbers, wlw wtis'carried off ini mediately by las companions The passengers return ed to town, and asked the Government for an escort, which was refused. :. They let the stage go on empty, and entered protets against the refusal of the government , to protect them under such circumstances. i City of Mexico, April 19, 1847. TJ econd letter of your Queretaro correspondent, dated the 14th inst., gives in. detail the present military--resources of the country and what is deemed necessary if the" war is determined upon; but in case such a determination is thought of, how appalling must these statistics be to any Mexican-of sense, who desires to preserve the nationality . of his country. Cleven thousand five hundred men is all they can bring into the field. They say if peace cannot be had they want 53,500 men more, and 156 pieces of artillery, of which latter thev have, I learn, from good authority, at all point, not more than 40 pieces, and these generally T an inferior quality. To support the force which they say would be reauired, would involve a monthly ex penditure of over a million of dollars, and . . - A ? -1 - 1 with an xneir ports in our possession ana a large portion of their richest territory, to gether with seven or eight of their most wealthy and populous cities, whence, in the absence of all national credit, can they expect to arise so large a sum. So desperate a situation of affairs of the country one should think would bring the members..of Congress to gethec at Queretaro in a rush, to ratify the highly favorable treaty that awaits their action; until the 2d Juttc Wten, as is . understood, if the treaty bjc not ratified, warlike operations are to be resumed. , The fetter says that several of the States have refused to send their Representatives to Congress, and private letters from Queretarotepresent that it is comtemplated by the Government, in view of the present position of Yucatan, and the state of the country generally, to". decree that fifty or sixty members of Congress shall constitute a quorum, and thus declare a quorum to be present. now, and thus baffle the designs of the opponents of peace. The treaty was sent to Queretaro on the day before yesterday by a Mexican ex press, and at the same , time a despatch was sent to the Mexican Government by our commissioners. I do not know the purport of their communication, but a re ply is anticipated on Friday, when they expect to start for Queretaro. Should they go, Maj. Polk with a hundred or an hun dred and fifty men will escort them. Sewino Machine. The Boston Chrono type speaks of a machina, invented and patented by J. B. Johnson and Chas. Mo rey of that city, which will, in two min utes or less, stitch the" longest seam of a pair of pants, and which, in less time than ' it would take the tailor to cut them, will finish the pants in the nicest manner, ex cept sewing on the buttons and working the button' holes. It is wonderfully simple and easy to manage. The work is inimit ably regular and beautiful, and we think must be durable, because the best of thread is required'' We bopethe machine will not go into operation.' It may as the Boston Travel ler says, do the work of 6 seamstresses," but as irwill' take the bread out of their mouths nfc- the same time, we are in favor of abolishing it We make these remarks with becoming diffidence, as we have no right to interfere with white slavery at the N o r t h' Ri chmond Republican. Oh, yes; -do let the machine go into operation; what if rt does take the. bread out of the mouths of poor females.; their attention can be turned to " agriculture," or something worte.

Charleston AJercury. - CAUGHT IN THEIROWN TRAP. Sketch of a debate in the House of Repre sentatives, on the ZJth ofpriL- -'""The following sketch of -the Rebate tfiat occurred in the House of Representatives to-day on the subject of the correspondence between the Secretary "of War and Gener al Scott, will be found . interesting, shew ing that the whigs, after calling for all the correspondence, found that they had got a tartar, and tried to suppress one ot the let ters of the Secretary of War, -written in answer to a long bill of complaints against the Secretary and the administration : Mr Clingmanmsdntained that he was right in waerting that several important letters had been held back by the Department, as the letter just received by the House showed ; snd as there was a resolution from the committee on printing, di recting 10,000 extra copies of the army corres pondence to be printed, he was in favor of the amendment of Mr Cobb, of Georgia, to include the correspondence just received. He thought it seemed to be the settled purpose of the admin istration to keep back information from Congress. The instructions to Mr Slidell had been refused to the House, he said, and yet they were publish ed in the New York paper in two weeks after. He referred to a statement of Mr Henley that certain four letfel-s, which he exhibited, were'jdl the unpublished letters. He did not blame Mr Henley, because he believed he had been imposed upon by the Secretary of War, who' had attempt ed to palm upon the nation a deliberate false hood." That will do very well for one of " all the decency party." Mr Henley stated that the War Department did not consider that the plan of the campaign was called tor in the first resolution calling fer correspondence. . . " " Mr Clingmangain went on. He said that four days after the resolution, calling for this corres pondence, hat been passed, the Secretary of War commenced a tirade against Gen. Scott, that it might be printed and go forth with the corres pondence. He said that the administration did not want Gen. Scott home before the nominations for the Presidency. He then went on to eulogize Gen. Scott, and to censure the administration. He would not bring Gen. Scott forward tor the Presidency, but in his opinion, the General would be the best candidate that could be taken up. , Mr Houston made a short pungent reply to Mr Clingman, correcting several statements of Mr C. . . , , Mi- Conr, a whigr. suggested that the-types had been distributed, and that it would cost con siderable money to print this 10,000 extracspies. Mr Houston said he had never heard any thing about the cost until it was found out by the whigs that Gen. Scott's bill of indictment against the Secretary had been answered, and was with the correspondence.' Mr Stephens said it' had been suggested that all the documents had not yet been sent into Congress; that documents con cerning the conduct of Gen. Pillow had been kept back on the ground that they could not be made public consistent with the public interest. 1 Mr Hilliard actually suggested that tbe letter of the Secretary of War, in answer to Gen. Scott, should not be printed with the rest of the cor respondence ! Mr Houston asked if that letter pinched rather too tight ! Mr Hilliard said he had not seen it, but maintained that it had been written after the clII of the House for the correspondence had been made. But Mr Houston showed, that ac cording to the terms of the resolution, that very letter was expressly called for. Mr Hilliard de sired to know if the letter had been written be fore the call was made, or after. Mr Houston said he did not know ; that he did not supervise the affairs of the War Department. Mr Hilliard said there were those who did know that it was not written until after the call was made ; but it was afterwards acknowledged that they only knew from the date of the letter, which was dated four days after the resolutions. Mr Houston said that that was evidence enough for him that the gentleman knew nothing about when it was written. Mr Stephens (whig) was in fdvor of printing this letter, even if it was written after the call was made. . - - The great matter of contention seemed to be the Secretary's letter, the whigs declaring it was written after the resolution calling for the cor respondence, and the democrats were not in. formed as to when it was written; nor did they consider it a matter of any importance. Mr McLane said that he never had any idea of calling for aletter before it was written; but he had the coil so amended as to embrace this reply, because he knew that Gen. Scott's letter would be replied to. Mr Cobb said that every issue taken by the originators of this call for correspondence, had been abandoned. The first object of the call was to show that Gcnl Scott had been badly treated ; but before any other member had seen the cor respondence, -Mr Clingman had examined it at the printing office, and immediately discovered that a part of the correspondence had better not be published, and objections were made to a part of it pretendedly because it was supposed to have been written after the call was made, as if that made any difference, even if it was true. When the call was first made, it was nearly unanimous, but now all sorts of objections were raised to printing the correspondence. ' Mr Stephens reiterated that he had not objected. Mr Cobb continued, saying that at first the matter called for was the correspondence be tween Gcnls. Scott, Taylor Mr Trist, and the War Department; and having got that, it was still said that the most important matter was still kept back, referring to correspondence with Gen. Pillow, whose name had not before been mentioned. - . Mr Hilliard still objected to the printing of the Secretary s letter. He was unwilling to treat Gen. Scott in such a manner. He would be willing to print it when Gen. Scott's reply to it should be received. Mr Cobb desired to know if the House was to wait for all replies to be written, and at that rate, when the publication would be made ? Mr Cobb asked Mr Hilliard (a whig) if he did not consider tbe tana ot is lb a monument of wisdom; to which Mr H. replied .Yes; but its influence had all been destroyed by the1 war."- After some further conversation, the question was taken, and it was agreed that the whole cor respondence should be printed.

Later From Europe The Commissioners of Wilmington have determined not to make the - subscription of one hundied thousand, dollars in the Wilmington & Manchester Railroad Com pany, which they were requested to do by a large majority of the citizens of the town. The ground they take is that no legislative enactment conferring powers upon them, authorizes them to do so, and that they might by such proceeding, involve them selves in individual responsibilities. It can hardly be doubted that the next Le gislature will give the Commissioners the requisite power to make the subscription, supposing that they do not now "possess it. Wilmington Chronicle.

Ledru Roll in had at length made the for mal attempt, to destroy the. Provisional Government in France, and that t roons were arriving every moment in naris. from all parts of the country. The greatest excitement and alarm had been created in Paris and throughout the country by these astounding events, and scenes of the most momentous character were daily expected. . 1 he financial crisis in Pans was appa rently subsiding, though business and trade were still much depressed. "The cause of quarrel, between Ledru Rollin and his colleagues, is said to liave been as follows : A deputation came ito Paris from Amiens, for the purjMise of presenting a petition for the removal of one of Ledru RoUin's com missaries, on account of some violent pro ceedings he had indulged in the exercise of the unlimited powers with which he and his fellow-commissaries.had - beeii invested by M. Rollin. M. de Lamartine and several other members of the Provisional Govern ment are said to have admit ted the miscon duct of the coinmissarv, and stated that he ought to been removed,? : v. Mr Rollin refused to sacrifice a function ary who, if to blame at all, was only guilty of over zeal in the cause of the republic. Upon this, a violent-scene, and words passed .between the different members of the provisional government which caused a wide breach in the councils of the nation. Paris has been the scene of one of those ex traordinary demonstrations which can only occur in that capital. ; Fortunately it has passed oft without bloodshed. A meeting was accordingly got up for the Champs de Mars on Sunday night, with this ulterior object. However, Mons. La martineand Marrast having got previous intelligence of the plot, circumvented their designs. The National Guards, as well as the Mobiles, were called out, and the criti cal state of thin rs which thre .
