Why, it is pr -irate I pruauai* 1! prosuals !!! We, I'riendi
ot Mr Catboun, tell you that as will stand with you un

Ueutleasen of tb* Convention, this is no lima for iniling
The peril is loo imminent. Lose lbs Stale—ruin ths party

—a war of which I labs laava to say I hare been tbe tho
rough, hearty supporter, from its inception to lb* present

tion and your surrender of the State? How can you de
Zend yourteltea before them? You may eay you Aele
Calboun, and bis Inends, too, who naver lailed you in lha
hour of need, because of your haired of him. How will
you look before ibe people witb an excuse like thai? Ton
hale Calboun mao. and lo crush them, will crash the party.
The only conaaquence of Importance lo be achieved by
your resolution it the defeat of our parly. Now the De
mocracy of the fftafe know that wc were never wanting in
ac/rea, and they love their party. Tbe grand doctrines of
the party are our faith, and we will never desert them.—
but our principles and policy are lo be cast down to the
dust, and h\ bigger)- is lo be triumphant! Ot this result,
which I deeply deplore, you will be the authors— vot win.

Ilolrttf of Colknuntom' The people will not be satisfied
by that cry. On your heads, I warn you, the conseque li
ce* must be vialled. If we shall be denounced and our
party handed over, bound hand and fool, an easy prey to
the Whigs; then when the spectacle it presented of our
measures overthrown, our hopes blighted, and Democracy
undone, an indignant people will demand who did it’—
Torn we will point to you, and exclaim—
*• I .si the galled jades wince, our withers are un wrung.”
Will you assume the fearful responsibility of this action?
We "ask for bread," will you “give usa stone’" “forfish,”
will you "give us a s*rp*nt?" We wish union. Are you
determined on rfisrensiou? Wc proffer peace—will you
insiel on e«rf Chon e ye;—os lor ourselves, we have "a
heart for any fate." Do as you will—we have an "appeal
unio Ce-ear," and we will make il—an appeal unto the to
lerant, liberal and just people of Virginia.
Mr Wooltomi was perfectly willing they should refer
the mailer to the people. They would say all the discord
comes from tbe Calhoun men. Mr W. called Ihe previous
question, but withdrew it at the .nstanre ol
Mr 800TT, who sa d hr did sign the paper published in
1844, alluded to by Mr Caskie. Ilut he begged to know if
it contained any thing against a Convention lo nominate a
Democrat? He concurred heartily in the form of a Con
st ntiog sustained m that address; but he begged lo know if
there was any thing m .ho resolution against that sort of
Convention?
Mr Caskik look the resolution with the commentary
made tijton if by the Chairman of the committee who re
ported it.
Mr Scott—with the commentary—Then, saul he, we
have a starting point. The resolution itself was one both
l< irtiea might adopt, with the change of a single word. He
» as lor ihe bril Convention to express the sentiments of the
party; and be wuuld strike out the word “oniy" and insert
"best" in piaee of it—so as that it should read "ihe beet
practical mode," Ac.; for he could not consider the Con
vr n’i >n the "only" practictl mode. The people might with
oi.p voice elect a man to be President, and that would br
tat best mode. [Messrs. Cox. Wallace and others intimated
they would accede to this amendment ]

•ATI KDAY HOUIL1B, PCMUARY IT, 1MT.
Tin- Origin of tin* W«r.
If, »• the Executive Organ at Washington is constantly
affirming, the war with Mexico te exceedingly ••popular.”
and that, being to, the people are disgusted and incensed
with the tardiness of Congress in responding to tbe mea
•uree proposed by the Kxerutlvo for ite •• vigorous prose
cution,” is it not remarkable that anch strenuous efforts
are made to relieve the President from the responsibility,
which, in the judgment of all impartrol men, he has in
curred. of having, by hie rash measures, brought on the
conflict l In each of the Executive Messages to Congress
01 the subject, to the first of whirh the law recognising the
existence of war, as •• the art of .Verreo,” was responsive,
the moat labored efforts have been made to satisfy the pro
pie that every effort bad been made by our Government,
consistently with a due regard for the natioaa! rights and
honor, to prevent an ojh-ii rupture with Mexico. But theeo
Executive Mcs<ages are wholly inconsistent wnh each
other; and consequently, the positions assumed by the
Inrnds if the Administration, in its defence, borrowed
first from one and then Irom another of those documents,
are frequently directly aniagoatstteal. Thus, at one time,
we are told, that Mexico made war upon us—that not only
was ihe first blow struck by her. but that it was so struck
in pursuance of order* from the then President of the Mex
ican Republic, bclorc Ihe march of our troops to the Rio
Grande ; and in the next breath, even chronology is in
verted and admitted historical fact* are distorted, for the
purpose of allowing that we were justified, by the repeated
and long uuatoned for outrages committed by Mexico upon
the persona and property of our citizen*, in making war
upon her 11 So tortuots and eontrad ctory are always the
statement* and arguments of those, who, abandoning the
plain and simple truth, are reduced t the necessity of at
tempting the justificat.on of a great error of judgment nr
of a premeditated and do toeratc wrong, by a perversion
or concealment of facts. If Me* co commenced the wcr.
u the trienda of the Administration assert, why, we ask.
the necessity of detailing the wrongs we have suffered at
her hand*, in order to justify u* for fighting her! Even if ail
the relations between the two Kcpub tes,, nor to that blow,
had been of the trust pacific ana friendly character, that
act alone would have compelled us to punish the age-cs
•or. But it was because Mr. Polk well knew that the first
war! ke act had been c >mm tied by himseit, in the seizure
of territory in dispute between the two Governments, but
which had bc.n always tn possession of Mexico—a sei
zure made with the knowledge on his part that it would be
regarded and treated rs an act of war by Mexico—that he
deemed it necessary to uevote so large a portion of hi* last
Annual Message to the j> •urtrayal • f the unredressed grte.
varces to which we had so I mp pat e:.t!y submitted, for
reasons satisfactory to his prcccces* irs. It is, indeed, tm.
possible to imsgine any other object for tbe exaggerated
detail of tbe**- grievances, if it be not to justify, in the
eyes of our own peop'e and of the world, the declaration
of war by our own Government against Mexico. Kor, no
man will be guilty of the absurdity uf saying that Mexico
made war upon us. because she had, lor a series of years,
commuted depredations upon the property of cur cittxrns,
for which she had refused, or was unabte to make repara
tion ! That is an absurdity so gross that the uund at once
rejects it. But if it be true that the legan the trie, that
lac: is enough to justify ua for prosecuting it unt.l ane ears
lor peace. It was not neceesirr to rake up the records ol
he last th'rty years, to find reasons for our vinutcauon,
when that atng.i; fact, standing n pr -mi neatly before th"
world, that sue stxci k rut rtu-r blow, would have been
itself amply sufficient to exculpate u« from e< naure, not only
to our ow n c maciencea, but in the judgment of the civ.fixed
world. It was because Mr. Poik knew- mat the act was
otherwise, that he resorted to this, the most plausible
means of sell-justification in his power.
Mr. Benton, however, takes a new- track. He declares
that Mr. Calhoun ts the teal author 01 tbe war, of which
the annexation of T*.xa», by the means and in the manner
r< a rteJ to by that gentler.en, wbi.c Secretary of State,
tor the accuaip.wbmeut ol .h great measure, was the true
cauar. II the fact were so, Mr. Cal.ioun ru'ght well throw
himself upon the great Lee toco pirty, to which, on the
question of annexation, Mr. Bcntoj occupied a hostile at
titude, for hts defence, for if the annexation of Texas
wx* the conception of his mind, that party made it their
own by adoption. He would have been powtr.rss but for
their co-operation ; and if that be the cause of tae war.
merefore, they, and not be, must be held responsible. In
deed, we have recently seen the success • t that measure
ascribed to Mr. Poik httnseif by the Washing u Tmon, as
one of the brgntest reathers ;n hi* cap—ta -gh in truth,
he hau nothing to do with ir, in his official capacity, save
the peronnance of certain E ecufive forms of proceeding,
winch were necessary to give legs, validity to a transac
tion wb ch had been consummates prior to h.s inaugural.on.
He roj.t he acquitted, therefore, of any official agency in
mat measure, and must dir,de with the pany wh ch elect
en him, up a that iseue, the respnas o.nty for tne cor.se
I quencea last hare resu ted from its adoption. But i» Mr
| Beaton's posit, r. tenable 7 That tne annexation of Tex
j o* »a* the remate cause of the war, no one can question—
because, if it bad n t taken place, the invasion of the Val
i iey of tbe RioGrar.de, wn.eb Mr. Benton in 1541 declared
Would have been “an act of DIRECT AGGRESSION
UPON MEXICO, for all Ike consequence! of ieWA the
United Slotei iroald te retpontibltwould not have taken
pace. But the proaimnte cause of the war was indub,tn
oiy tae perpetration of that "act of aggression” by the or.
dera of Mr. Poik. If the question of boundary, which
was left open, in express terms, for future negotiation and
adjustment, by the "joint resolution,” through the agency
of which annexation was uncontliiutionally elite led. had
not been akraptly decided by Mr. Polk himaelt, and tn
’ forced ky arms, we believe, with Mr. Calhoun, (and such
will be tbe ultimate judgment of our own countrymen,;
•hat the war might and would have been avoided. As roan
as the fact that Gen. Taylor had been ordered to march
from the Neures to the Kin Grande became known, w.r
was anticipated and pred.cited. Mr. Calhoun drciarts that,
whm tae fact was communicated to him by Mr. Clayton,
it amazed and alarmed him—and that nothing but the criti
cal position of the relations then sub-rimg between G.-eat
Britain and the Cnitcd Sates, growing out of the Oregon
controversy, and hn» d<*trc to prevent ■ rupture between
'.hem, prevented his pen protest against a rn aaurc, which
he believed would lead to a war * th Mexico. Thai pro
tejt he did not make, le*t it might impair hia influence
with the President, which he wu then exerting to edi ct a
pacific settlement of th<- dispute with Great Britain—a rea
son, we conic**, not very aatie'aclory, though we a:c con
strained to say entirely charartmtuc of Mr. Calhoun
whose great defect, as a State m in, is his want of nerve
and decision. Mr. Calh run's statement on this subject,
however, it fully orrob ;rau J by Mr. Clayton, win, m a
late speech in Ihe .Senate, advert* to it in a manner which
•how* so clearly rite immediate came of tho war, that we
make no apology for copying it at length.

•Wlr Clayton Yes, the Senator is right. Thus, Mr.

• l*n the 24th of April, and batwaen the hours of 19 and

Kentucky behind. vMr. Mon-head.* and I said 1 had no
doubt that we Were then at war with Mexico, and 1 added.
••I believe we have had a light." Sportively we laid a
small wager on that tuatier, and it turned out afterwards, for
I made a minute of it. that I won the bet by about four
hours, (or Thornton's dragoons were out up about 4 o'clock
In the morning of the same day. Well, theae events reeal.
led and impressed upon iny luiud this great fact, that, white
the Houses ot Congicas rsraained In ignorance, and those
who knew, could not move, the Frea.dent of the U. Slates
wa. ordering the army of the Untied Statca upon the Kio
Grande, and taking a step of which (ho inevitable conse
quence proved to be war.”
••••eases
"At the time war was declared, I denounced it aa the act
ol the President of the United States, but 1 avowed myaelf,
then, and 1 have ever einee avowed myaelf, willing to vole
supplies lor the war. I believe that the war was brought
on by this thing of marching the army, without any ucces
S ty. from Corpus Christ! to the Rto Grande; done, too,
while Congress waa in session, with out one word being
communicated aa to the intention of the President of the
United Mates, either to the Senate or the House, or to any
committee of either House of Congress, or, as far aa 1 have
been able I v judge, to any member of either House of Con
gress. I nder these circumstances, Mr President, the rc
spon.ibihty of the war wilt probably rest on him, who ought

urge the selection of another candidate for this Congress

that Mr. Seddon reluses to pledge himself to the auppon
of the nominees tor President and Vice President of a
-National Convention, or even to give the vote of “the
Democracy of Virginia," should the election devolve on
the House of Representatives. And these, being a’me of
the “chrtiahcd principles" of the party, which the late
Convention was convened for the purpose of promulgating,
he is to be uncerera mioualy thrown overboard. Ilia ad

Whereas, cotmdtng in, and snimated by the conserva

orthodox and salutary by the development of recent poli

ntercb inge ol sentiment in the selection ot a candidate,
we CJrri ally agree with our Wing brethren in the expedi
ent)- ot bidding a District Convention with a view to the
selection of a suitable noniiuee.
Resolved, That we should be derelict in duty, and want
ng in justice, were we to wuhUold the just meed of our
gratitude and thanks from Robert H. Whitfield, Esquire,
tue Whig candidate in the late canvas*, who, brooking the'
probabilities ot delrat, bore alolt the ensign of Whiggery,
and wtin a courage, intrepidity and ability not surpassed
■ n any former political raeTc, sustained, with undying
credit lo himself and honor to his party, the great and con

nevertheless, heartily co-operate in the support of any can
didate whom the proposed Convention may designate.
Resolved, Tnat in this expression of preference for Mr.

Hle&lrau Affair*.
Ill *11 ih* pap.r* w* have examined w* mo no mention
ol mjf public adieu of Congress upon our proposition for
P*a«* other loan relerrtri* ilieia. On ih* couiroty, it sp
appear* iio« thin proceeding* of the Wist uli that iba c.ni
initiaa whunt our nwrturw war* Ion* srnoe nlarttf hail
not then reported. The subject came up ou ih* au|*HUou
of Renor Gamboa that the Minister of Foreign Alf.it*
should reply lo "til* inipulations, falsehoods and iqjurMa
don* to ihe Mexican*," contained in ihe measage of the
I'lceidenl of the United Riatea. Renor I’achaco thought It
the duty of the Administration ralhar than Congress to
manage this matter, ttiat was beneath the dignity of Con
gri>« to enter into a newspaper diecumion of Iheir wrong*;
Ihat lhair iiijurra* were to be redressed rather by arms and
victories than the pen; and that there waa no other Heap*
lor their Republic from the depths of disgrace. Uuides,
he Ihou* it enough had already been written ol tho justice'
el tbeir cause.
Senor Rrjou spoke next tnd suggested Ihat if it w*a pro
per to reply at ail to the ra.ssa** of Frcsideni l\,lk, iho pre
sent waa not the moment. A more favorable opportunity
would be presented when the committee to whom Ike Amer
ican overture* wero referred should make iheir report. In
rrpolling throe overture* the commote* niight|*how to the
world that the United States, not Mexico, had been ihe ag
grcsa.’rs.
Senor Pachreo rejoined In a hostile drain, intimating
that whatever might b* the opinion of ihe committee aa to
replying lo Mr Polk, th*y could not report in favor of ac
cepting overture* lor peace, because the last dagreo of ig
nominy would be to enter into such a treaty as could now
bemad*—tho terms would necessarily be mosl degiadmg
and shameful for Mexicans.
Rrjon rejoined, expressing himself much of the opinion
of the lonner speaker as lo a peace. It could uol he made
until the whole nation should call for it. We would re
spe.-i such an opinion, bui would always reprobate such
conduct. Ilia design was to suggest, nol that the commit,
tee should report agreeably to this or lhal opinion or in
struction, but Dial in making their report the committee
should give to it ihe lorm of a manifesto, justifying ihe con
duct of Mexico in the war forced upon her by United Stales
aggression. Renor Otero, * member of the committee,
closed tho discussion by remarking that there were vari
ous documents before ihe committee beside* the overture*
ol the United Slates. Thst the romntittee, agreeing in rr.
gard to Texas and the war, lud already labored upon the
subject, but had not yet been able to rotne to a determina
tion upon all the pointa submitted to them. I hat tnordir
to make their report they thought it necrosary to obtain oomo
further J iI j, lor which they had applied to th« proper de
ptrtmcnt; and that as soon as they had received them, they
would prepare their report, by which Congress would ace
that the committee had not looked with indifference nt this
delicate and interesting husmrs.. The suggestion of Se
imr Gamboa was not. therefore, adopted, nor do we find
any lurther mention of the subject in our pa|>ers.
Although letters of the "tith uli. front San Luts declared
confidently that tho army, with Santa Anna at its head
would move the next moruinj in some direction, there were
those in Vera Crux who suspected that Ihe capital was
their destination, raiher than Tula or Saltillo. Surely the
forty or fif y thousand dollars they have obtained cannot
laal them lorqj.
The Mexicans* account of Gen. Minon'a capture- of Ms
jor Borland'* command quite unpretending. They aay
that although it is un mportant in itself, it it a prelude iu
the victories which sro shortly to crown their arms.
A paper says that the enlistment of troop* to form the
c tiitiiand of Geu. La Vega was going on rapidly in the
upper country.
„ w* •">J >n *he Loromottr an energetic appeal to the
Government to provide money to huy provisions for tho
troops III Vers Crux and the castle of San Juan. It culorcca
it* appeal by declaring that during the month of December
last otiicers of companies were compelled lo go without food
a w hole day, and first bleak Iheir fast at night; other* had
bem [orced loseek lltcir discharge because ibey could not
obtain the sustenance necessary lor them ; ami others again
were actually ill from the pangs of hunger. We have a let
ter, which reached us only yesterday, dated aa far back aa
the 17th alt., confirming what we sud yesterday of the short
supply .,f provisions in the cane. And the want of arms
at \ era Crux was felt almost us much a* want of food. For
aomo tunc they have been organizing a national guard in
’ cr* Lruz, and up to the middle of January they had nearly
14,000 tnen enrolled, but had no means ol arming them.
In fine, the numbers who com) forward for the defence of
'he place actually weaken its rapacity to resist attack. A
fow thousand well appointed and well supplied troops wou'd
bo far more efficient, ware all the volunteers sent off to
subsist m some other part of the country.
