devotcd a portion of our columns to the most
disgusting narrations of Idoody battles, murdcr
and devasta'ion inflicted by our countrvmcn
upon a wcak and defencclcss nation. We rc
joice that the horrid banquet in blood which
Polk has set bcfore the nation is soon to be
cnded. We do now cntcrtain some delightful
hopc that the timc has nrrived whcn we can
talk of pcace, of which a tolerablc prospcct
prescnts itsclf. It can no longcr be doubtcd
that Gen. Scott has assumcd the rcsponsibility
of ncgotialing pcace with Me.xico, which is now
in the hands of our cabinet at Washington.
It is belicvcd that it will be submitted to thc

tion. To-dayl count 1G s falling oflf of 4.
Thcy avoid quarrclling with tho Administra

idency. Sam Houston, who knows the Mcxi
cans better than any ono hcrc, will dcnouncc
it; and I hear tliat CoL Benton himsclf fecls

his mastcr mind to thc subject and use his ty

at this moment sccms to require suth aid, the

has not a chance of inlerpofing his casling vote.
In his hands all tcould le safe.
I think the probability of the Trcaty being
ratified, or only slightly dissented from, is in
creasing; but the friends of the Trcaty must
not halloo bcfore thcy are out of the woods.
