Tlio Stntlmlivvl I) nvKral publishes, from tlic
N. Y. Juiini'il if Comm'iv, a tetter from llic
Hcv. Y:ilter Collon Inquire, a fort of non-des-cript
Justice or tlin Peace in California, under
tho reign of his Serene Highness Coninuidore
Stockton who not lung ago formally annexed
that favored country tn tttl - Union,. mil proclaim'
cil himself ( Inventor, Captain CrcticralCoininaiid
or-iu-Chiof, and every thing else short of Km
peror, therein. Tlio reverend .lii-tice-of-tho
Peace's letter is well enough, giving an account
ofhi I'leftion to that responsible post "by the
suffrages ol'lhe people," in the most approved re
pulilicau stylo, ami expressing the opinioirthat,
i-ince his aforesaid election as a Justice of the
I'eacc, (or Alc.ihle). "the misses" (the true
'democratic" phraseology) "are thoroughly with
lis and right gi. nl to ge'rid of Mexican rule.
Had it been otherwise," say Mr Cullon w itli j
inimitable simplicity, '!ey u-imhl iicic hate
elected me ".' The correctness nf -uch a process
of reasoning it is not for us to dispute. The
reverend .Magistrate thinks California should
never bo surrendered to Mexico again, hut in
toad, ho says, ''let Congress annex her to the
Union as a territory, and c-t.iblMiachil govern
ment." II Congress suppose they can do the
thing any stronger than Commodore .Stockton
has ilono it already they will probably find them
selves mistaken. Our military and nival olli
cers have got "the knack'' of annexation to a
lint, as wc have remarked, this letter ol the
Rev. Inquire Cnlton is well enough, though it is
)iorhais tinctured witli a spice of tlio carnal cm
ings of conquest that is moro appropriate to the
political than the spiritual calling of its author.
However, this is no special concern of our. Our
present object, in noticing the letter at all, is to
call attention ton sample or two of tlio philo
sophical reflections with which the Sentinel in
troduces it to its readers. These aro in every
rc-pect woithy the reputation that our friend has
already attained by means of hi-, profound dis
quisitions on the inevitable "destiny" of the
Spanish American race "who aro to di-appoir be
fore the Anglo Swnn as the Indians did be
fore their own ancestors."
Mr. Colton says, among other things, that ho
"einpannelcd the first jury that ever sat in Cali
fornia," whereat the Sentinel indulges in the fol
lowing hurst of feeling :
"Only think (') that llic trial by jury is unknown to
them in this p irticiilur llii-y nrehnt so enlightened as
the sjnvous were in the time of Alircd, inoic than t00
The Sentinel having thus "broken ground"
proceeds as follows:
"Who that carefully enntrmn'ntes th detracted, de
graded conuitiuu ol me Alexic.in .ntion ; the violence,
tyranny ami haughty dictation ol i.er priests ami iles.
p its, the iguuinut.s.nv ish an I almost hopeless degrada

est aspinitioiis who can doubt th , our uiva-inn will
be the dawning nt a mure prupitiuiu day upon (his
much abused people I"
And this is the .Sentinel's description of the
character and condition of tho people again-t
whom it desires to see arrayed the wh de naval
and military power of this vast Union! Hut
when wo poor Whigs venture to suggest that
neither ju-ticc, nor true magnanimity, nor self-
defence, nor national pride, dent m led that our
armies should im5tliismi-eiab!- sh ulow of
republic, and thrust upon its unhappy citizen
ground to the earth by domestic oppres-ion, the
unhallowed civilization and liberty that Vai:
confers, the tune is changed ! Then, Mexico j
becomes the Kxm.A mi of 181U anil the Whig-I
are branded as federalists I What troublesome
inconsistencies this thirst for fine writing expos
es us to !
But hear the Sentinel onco more. Another
apocalyptic vision touching the 'destiny' of Mex
ico is thus unfolded:

Our correspondents plan is to bring the Og-den-burgh

County of fliand Isle, to a connection with a rail
j road in .Milton on the Vermont side of the Lake,
and thence to a connection with the Vermont

o dcsiro it to be understood that wo are dis
cussing this subject in a practical, "common
sense," view. We do not say that bridges can
ml be constructed acros, ilm waters mentioned,
nor that tho route indicated may not lie a feasible
one, inthc abstract. What wesay is that no such
bridges cicr icill bo built, and that no such route
ctcr in' be traversed by a train of cars. This
islho light in which wc are now debating the
matter. Should thc time over come wlienthein

candid attention. We know not, and we care

Ogdensbiirgh may bo connected, bv a continu
ous lino of railway across Lair Chnmplain, with
Hoston ; we have only to say that in our opinion
it cannot be done.
Hut how then can this formidable obstaclobe
best surmounted, is tho question that remains.
We answer, by carrying a railway around it, or
by crossing it at that point which is, during the
longest period of the year, unobstructed by ice.
In either of the-e rases, our excellent friend the
"Islander" will observe that lliirlingtou must lie

go around the Lake must connect with tho Ik
