SPIR1T OF TIIE FEDEUAL PRESS. Wo liavc, from limo to time, clippcd from somc of the fodenil pnpprs, articlcs in relution to the wnr witli Mexico. Wc liavo publislict many of tliosc dcnuncia tions, and pcrhaps it wouhl scem tliat onr storo isabout cxliaustcd; yet, we liavo "a few morc of tlic samo 3ort." Jf wo rc membor riglit, wc Iiuvc selecled sometliing likc iwo hiintlrcd federal articlcs wliich go aguinst the war and itssupportcrs; in various ways and in all kindsof langnage. From thc low and basc misreprcscntalion lo thc ontright nnd black falschood from tiic miaerablc and cowcring blackgnard to thc dcmagogtio statcsman. Ilut mark! in all our clippings we nru h appy to say tlint not onc is from ailemocratic journal, nci tlicr liavc wc seon onc. Ifany ono will put tlieir finger on a dcmocrntic pnper u hicli has gono againsl the wnr, and given "aid and comfori" to tho Mcxicans, wc will publish it among thc othcr fedoral cx- tracts. Wc hone our dcmocratic frionda will "prcscrvo llie docnments," and in aftcr ycars know who werc thc oppnscrs and who thc supportcrs of the war w'uh Mexico. Thc federal party will try and tum it off, and say thnt thcy did not de scil thcir couniry in war, and thnt they did not givc "aid and coinfort to thc cne- niy;" but if tlcinocrats will prcscrvo the facts, thcy will be ablc lo throw thc lic in thcir facc. But to ihc exlracts they nccd no further comnicnt. Tho following extract is from a speech of Mr Giudings, of Ohio, in the Ilousc of Reprcscntativcs. "This is an Execulivc war. It wascom mcnced by liis ordeis. IJe dirocled our army to lcavo 'Corpus Christi,' to cntc; the iMcxican selllemcnts, and to tako a position upon llie 'Rio Grnndo,' without advising with Congrcss. It was uiidcr Iii s ordcrs thnt tho baltlcs of 'Palo Alto' and 'Rusaca dc la Pnlma' wcrc fouglit.

'Thc imprecntions of those ivho wcre llierc rcndeied widows, and ol tliosc madc orphana, and of ihose who wcre thcii rcndeied childless.niiist in com ing timc rest on him. And in the day of final retribution, the blootl of our slaught crcd countnjmcn will bc rcquircd at hh hnnds. In thatdread responsibiliiy I will lake no slinie." Again Mr Giddingg saya: "Do wo cxpcct that the iinmutahle law of juslico will bc suspcndcd or repealcd, in ordcr that our uation may pass unpiin ished? I would carnestlv invukn cvpi-v preacher of tho gospel, ovcry professor of u,u "Uy rcngion, every lover ol his coun iry, lo put forih liis uttnost influencc to siop uiis uuo ol crimc, of physical nnd niorni tieain, now roihng ovct Mexico." " Ji hal means this war? It mcans that, so lnr aa our uovcrninent cnn cIToct it.the laws of Ileaven aro siMpendcd, nnd ihose ofHell cstnbliihcd in thoir ste.id. It tiicaus thnt the coininaiidmenls aro lo hc read and ohcycd by our peopletlius.

It tncans that wo ure to exhautt our treaBury, multiply taxes, incur public debts, and rnortgag'c the swent and blood o( honcst labor for untold ycars to come.

JVttr Yorli TrU bunc. The Trbune again thus appcals to tho peoplc of thc couniry: "Peoplo of thc Unitcd Stalcs, your rul- ers nrc prccipitating you mtoa rathomless abyss of crimc and calamity! Why slcep you thoughtlcss on its vcrge, ns tliough this was not your business, or murder coulil bc hid from tho sighl of God by n kwflimsy rags called bannors? Awakc and arrest thc work of butchery cre it shall bc too latc to proscrvc your souls from ihc guilt of wlwlcsalc SLA UGIL TER. " Thc Ohio Statc Journal, tho leading federal print, adopls tho following, in rcfercnco lo thc horrors of this war: "Mr Polk nnd his advisors. who hnvr brought Ihis war vnan us. becin to rencnt of thc madncss and folltj that hnvc charac terizcd their proccedings.

Tho Boslon Atlas, fuithfully chiming in wuh thc rude anuthcmns of "thosc who hnd gonc thnt way beforo it," vehcmcnlly cxclaims: "All the WROJYG oft.hr. xoar-all thc EVILofitalHhcSORROW it may occasion, bclongs to Mr Polkl" The following is from a federal spccch, by a mcmber of the Ilousc ol Reprcsenla tivcs from Ohio: "Send your armies, in the prosccution ofthis ii.i.r.oAi., UNRIGHTEOUS, and DAMNJlIiLE War, to thc mountniiib of Mcxico.nud discnsc nnd Ihc (oe will swccp lliem ofl'iu llwusands!" "It (tlic wnr) is without parnllol in thc annals of infamy." John P. Hak. "I hope cvcry officer and soldicr thnt passcs tlic Rlo Grande will be shot." Fcd. Hhrchanl of JY. Hampshirc. "Our army iscven now commitling thc rnost hnrriblo butcherics, nnd burniug and sacking thc villagcs of tho Mcxicans.

Slatc Banner, May 25V. 05 Wc fecl for Mexico just prociscly as wc should if England, instcnd ol'our country, was carrying on this extcrmina ting, inhunian warfare against her, and we do not see how any one with a soul within him, who is not au athcist and n disbeliver inthc prcccpl of tho gospel and tho I'rincc of Pcacc, can have any othcr feelings on the subject. Vl. Slatc lianncr, Juuc 0, 1840. A writer in thc Anti Arbor Statc Journ al of the 4th inst., a federal sheet, outdoes himself in thc falsclioods and slnndcrs lic heaps upon our own government in his cf forts to bolster up llie Mexican causc. xmong other pnragraphs equally mfnm ous, we copy thc following: "For such a causc ns Mexico is now fightinjj, our fathers fought thc protcc lion of thcir firc-sides. God will strilte with them thc voicc of tho world will uphold them. They aro conlcnding for liberty and wo cnslave them. Michignn lins no intcrcst in this war, nor nny othcr middlc or norlhern stato. A syslom of slavcry and sectionnl domination drags our citizcns lo pcrish iu thc wilds of Mex ico. Thc writer thus prcdicts dcfeat and dis aster lo our bravc troops now fighling llie baltlcs of thcir country in Mexico: "Sir, whcn our soldiers nre cntangled in thc defiles of Mexico, tho Rancheros will not alonc waylny thcir path but fathers and brothcrs and husbands, ayc, wivcs and dnughturs too, will inflict rcu genncc upon the dcstroyers of thcir liomrs and f.unine and pestilencc and tho Faiiitcd spirits offr fathers will frown upon them.

"Whcn our fathers tell, it wns for coun try nnil for man but thcao posterity will not mnbalm tlieir nnmes, thcy will not go dnwn lo all timc a sncrcd perfume to hcaven a sacrificc upon the allar of liuerty. ISo, wlnlc the vulture will prey upon thcir hodics posterity will pronounce a fcnrful doom, which, as coutitrymcn, wc darc not anticipatc. "But recruits nre called for voluntccrs to fill up the thiiincd ranks of our army You will go? Ifyou do, it is to reuounco the creat principlcs of our rcvolution to dcny your pareniage to bo falso iu liber ty to build up slnvcry to spread desola tion and death." A federal paper of Ohio, in speaking of Gov. Bnrily's proclamntion for Thnnks- giving, says: "For whal liavc thc pcoplc of Ohio jion to l)u gratelul thnt thcy arc to sct apart one day from thcir scculnr business.

Gcn. James Wilson, federal candidttlc for Congrcss, N. JI. "A war which hnd not only no mitign ting circumstanccs, but is stnmpcd all ovcr with thc blackncss of darkncss itself." N. II. Statcsman, leading federal avgan, cdiled by Ihc Statc prinla: Tho "Jtlcssachusclts Spy," the organ of John Davis who editcd il during tlic last war, whcn hc thrcw up his hal in tho streels of Worcester upon hcaring that tho Brit ish hnd takcn tho city of Washington, burnt tho capitol, &c. this pnpcr lately spokc as follows, for tho cvidcnt purposc of discouraging men from voluntccring: "Voluntecrs Jlhoy! The govcrnnicnt have called for one rcgiment of voluntcers from Massachusetts, lo perisli and rot on the pcslifcrous plains, or to bo slaughtercd in Ihc mountnin passes nnd fortified towns of Mexico.

We have some curiosity to scc who is disposcd to voliintccr in such a causc and with such prospects ahcad. The samc Spy, 1814, had thc following very pitiful, grnve, disconsolatc, and sol cmn dcclarations, as to llie justice of thc wnr of 1812. Tho editor of that papcr is morc honcst (!) than somc of his kiudrcd; hc does nol dodgo Fedcralism nt all: "We liavc uniformly entered our sol- emn protest against this ilesolating wnr, which originalcd in thc W1CKED, MA UGNJliVT vassions of a COIUIUPT and IMBEC1LE Government." "No republicnn people wcre ever so harrassed, pcrplexed. and disgtaccd, by a captious and corrupl set of rulcs, cs the peoplc ofthis country." "buch a Uoverntiicnl is worsc than "Tlic uvils thc Fcderalists hnvc long prcdicicd aro ihickeuing upon us, and in our nllliclions lct us nlwnys rcnicmuor, it is James Madison and his party that have brought thcsc cttlamitics upon us." "This ohstinatn, infaiuated, mnn plung C3 us into a wanton, wicktd war." John P. Ilalo a fedcralist of N. Hamp shire says iu speaking of tho wnr: "Il is pnntilni only among the DEV ILS OF TIIE BOTTOMLESS PIT." Thomas Corwin, fedeinl Scnator from Ohio, in liis war spccch beforo that body says: "If your Prcsidcnt nsks of mo mcn nnd moncy to proscctito the war, with God's assislancc aud my own poor fuculties, he shall hnvc ncillior men nor moucy to pros octits nny such purposc." The Lowell Couricr would follow tho cxample of Gov. Strong in the last war, who refused to nllow thc IMassachusetls troops lo go out of thc Statc. It says "i'V our parl wc hope that not onc vol nnlecr will go ovcr his Strtc linc for any such purposc. TIIE WAR IS UN JUST, J1ND MORIJ THAN T1IJ1T IT IS UNCONST1TUTIONAL The folloH'ing nrticlc is from tho New York Tribunc: "JI noble lcsttmomi.

Iu thc courso ofthc dcbnto in thc Massachusetts Lcgislaturc, upon iho qucs lion of grauting relief to thc voluntecrs, ono ofthc Mexican Whigs nligmatizcd thc voluntccrs as drunkardi aud vaga bonds.
