We took occasion a fcw days ago lo men. lion tho rt-ception of a paniphlct on ihe Tex an Revolution, by ' Probus." We do not know who " Probus" is, but wo conjecture him to bo David L. Child. At any rate, he has done a good service. The pamphlct occupies 84 large pages iu smajl type, and contains a mass orwell authcnticatcd facts. diawn mostly from official documenis, ex hibiled wilh piquant and apposite romments. These facts are known to but few of thc American people, though decply concerning them. Thcy show beyond all qurstion that tho project of getling Tcxas addcd to tho Uoion " by hook or by crook," has been long cherished, and Ihat tho means rcsorlcd lo have bcen unwarrantable and outragcous. It waa a darling project of Gcn. Jackson, and from tho momcnt he cama into power ho set himscir about il wilh grcat assiduity. In cxsmining the correspondence belwcen our Govcrnment and that or Mexico, pub lished by order orCongrcss, Probus discov ered frcquent rcferencc to othcr lettcrs which are not lo bc found, but arc supprcsscd as vrivaie, not being of a nalurc fit for ihe peo- plc to seo ; but what are publishcd sufficicnt ly discloso that tho principal business of our Ministcr in Mcxico, for the last fourlcen vears. has been to coax, intrigue, whecdle and chcat Mexico out of Tcxas, and that finally fraud aud force wcre added in lho mosl sinistcr manr.er through the agcn. cy of Houston and tho Texan voluntoers. In all these intrigucs, Mr. Van Buren was as rcady if noi as wiliing an inslrumcnt as any Soutliern Slavc-bold;r, the grand objecl being the exlension of slavcry into that rich and fertile region, where the Mexicans had abolishcd it. Our government bcgan lho quarrcl with Mcxico, because her govern. ment would not make a trcaly to deltvcr up fugiiive slavcs. Thi3 cfiort was made as soon as John Quincv Adam3 was driven OLt of offico by tho miserablc, kuavish Jivp ocriiical crv of " barcain and corruption,' and whcn Mexico ncremptorily refused, the efforl was rcdoubled to eet potsession of Texas. To accoiuplish this, wo have sev. cral timcs been very ncarengaging in a war wilh Mcxico, and hostilitiss would actually havo commcnccd at one time if Gcn.
