«♦*. which carried the aalar-rd resolution
to Team. The act war then done: Texts waa admitted:
all the rniH'iurwM oi admission were incurred—and
•eprcully that ennixujuanco which Mr.de H>caneBra had
tlen-ninred. and winch our Secretary had acerphd —
WAH 1 h# alate of war waa established—the alaia*
UHl waa rraalad—and that by lha operation of our own
roii-tim ion, at well aa by the filed declaration of
Maatcot fig Texas then being admitted into the Union,
the war with her extended to the whole Union;
and the duly of protecting her, devolved up >o the
I'r- anient o' the United States. Tue selection of the sb
oolote rwaolutlnn eihauated our action: the alternative
resolution lor Iiegoiiatloa waa delunrt s the only inode of
•diniHiun was the absolute one, and it made war. The
aaei was mad* to Mr. Polk's hand*: hia administration
came into existence with war upon it* hand*, and under
tin- couatitationel duly to protect Texae at the rxpenec
<1 w ar wiih Mexico: and to that point, all event* rapidly
tended. The Mexican mmi»ter, (leneral Almonte, who
had returned to Washington city after the rejection of the
tit aty of annexation, demanded his passports, and left
the United Hiaire. The land forces which had t>cen ad.
vanned to the Sabine, were advanced to Corpus Christ! :
the Mexican troop* moved toward* the Kio Crande : the
line! which remained at Vera Cruz, continued there :
entnrtMiea died out: the citixentof each country lelt the
other, aj far aa they could : angry denunciation* filled
ih- piraa ol each country: and when a minister waa
•-'■it from the Cured Siatea, hi* reception was return'd.
Tint state of war cxiaiad legally : all the circumstances
ol war, except the single circuin’tance of bloodshed, ex
it cj at the acccs»i.>n of Mr. Polk; and the two coun
tries, Mexico and iho U. States, aloud in relation to each
other impossible to bo continued. The march upon the
Km Crande brought on the conflict—made the collision
of anna—bui not the war. The war was prepared, or
gan.led, eatabliahcd by the Sccretaty of Stale, before he
left the department. It wns bis legacy to the democracy,
und to the Polk aduiiuiatration—hi* laat gilt to them, in
the moment of taking a long farewell. And now he sets
up lor a man of peace, and throws all the blame of war
upon Mr. Polk, to whom he bequeathed it.
Cicero says that Antony, flying from Rome to the camp
of Ctr«arin Cisalpine Caul, was the cause of the civil
war winch followed—as much so as Hrlen waa of the
Trojan war. Vl Htlrm Trojanit, air hit fair rerpMrcn
(sum krHi—causa ptttti at,ur rxitu fait. He says t.iat
that flight put an end to al! chance of accommodation ;
chard the door to all conciliation; broke up the plans of
peaceable men; and by inducing Cn-aar to break up Ins
camp in Caul, and march across the Rubicon, In up the
flamee of civil war in Italy. In like manner, 1 say that,
11.e flight of the winged messenger from this capital on the
Sunday night before the 3d of March, despatched by the
t on Secretary of State, in the cipiring moment of hia
1-iM t; and bearing bis tatsl choice to the cap-tal of Texas,
v •>• the direct eiu«e of the war with M xicc in wh cb wc
are now engaged. Like the flight of Antony, it broke up
the p'sns of ail peaceable men, slammed the door upon
negotiation, pot an end to al! chance of accommodation,
broke up the camp on the Sabinr, sent the troop* toward*
Mexico, and in up the war. Like Antony, and ibe otbe-s.
he made the war: unlike Antony, he doc* not stand to it ;
but copying rather the conduct of the paramour oi Helen,
he fl.es from the combat he baa proveked : and, worse than
Tana, he endeavor* to draw along with him, in hia otvn
unhappy flight, the whole American host. Pans ded alone
a- the a ght of Menclaus : the senator from South Carolina
urges os all to fly at the sight of Sams Anna. And, it may
be, that wor»e than Pan* again, be may refuse to relurn t •
ti e field. Pans went back under the keen reproach oi
llrctnr, and tried to fight.

In a picture ol ao many and such dreadtul errors, it it
hard lo apeeity the worst, or to dwell upon any one to the
exclust m of the rest; but there is one feature in this pic
ture of enormities w hich seems to demand that distinction:
I allude to Ihe pledge upon which the armistice and the
peace negotiations beiw eeo Mexico and Texas wore bro
ken up in 1814, and those two countries put hack into a
Mile of war, and ourselves involved in me contest. The
etory it briefly told, and admits of no dispute. The letter
of the 11 th of January it the accusing record, from which
there is no escape. Its awtul words cannot be read now
without iteez.ng up uie blood •• It is known to you that
an armist ce exists between Mexico and Texas, and that
negotiations lor peace arc now going on under the med a
tion of two powerful sovereigns, mutually tnendly. It we
yicid to your solicitation to be annexed to the I’n.ted States,
under these circumstances, we shall drsw upon ourselves

speaking tor the President of ti e United States, peuveiv
refused to take annexation on ihe condition proposed. 1 an

nouncing that he had just learned this fact by letter from
G.-n. Mmon, who it seem* i* stationed at a small lo«vr.

he had received information imm tn* Governor of Nue\a
Lon that the Americans hod been seen in mat neighbor
hood, and that h« supposed them to be tr. great f .rce, medl
mtirg an attack upon Ga nna. Minon writes that he
Sill ed lortli to meet the Am.ncan* with a brigade ofCa
vairy—that they immediately surrendered ai dtscreti. n—
that all the horses, wagon*, Ac, with which thry are found
in possession, with the exception of their arm*, was diat-.
btited among the soldier, a* tneir booty.
Santa Anna in address ng the Minister of War and Ma

.Mr. Culliutiu.
Il 1* apparent, that, whatever may bo the c our re deter
mined upon by the t. tends of Mr. Calhoun, the Adrainia
trac.on n determined upon the prostration of that gentle
man. Whether they aeparate from or unite with the Old
Hunkers, this purpose will be kept steadily in view. To
t in great object the Administration is stimulated by a d»u
bia motive. They denre to wreak their vengeance upon
Mr. Calhoun for the past; but, powrr'ul as it mat pa'aton,
it has .era weight t.ian the supposed necessity, in reference
to the next Presidential election, of depriving him of influ
ence in future. His refural to vote for the Mexican war
had been overlooked, if not (orgiren. The Administra
tion preive* were prudently s.lcnt in regard to tbit refusal,
aid to the emphatic remarks with wh en it was accotnpa
n.ed, even while they were charging the Wings who voted
I *r their war b.u and lor the means nccc sary to render it
cTectux , with "golug aid and coin ort to the enemy.”_
Tr.ey might, in like manner, excuse Mr. Calhouu's more
recent dec.aration that tne Pres dent unconstitutionally
commenced the war by ordering the march of our army
to the Rio Grande, and ncn h:s attack upon the " L berty
01 the Press." But they cannot overlook the fact that
Mr. Calhoun has taken decided ground against the use of
l^e Caucus machinery by which Presidents hare recrnily
been e ected, and his determination to res st a resort to it
• n Ibtli, as his Irieuds in Richmond succcs-ruily resisted
it Ih s winter in the clcc tonof a Senator. And the attacks
upon Sira now are intended to destroy the influence which
he might otherwur riert m hostility to that course of ac
tion, when the time shall arrive to begin the work of or
gamaation. They rejoice that a pretext has been afforded
thus early 10 commence the process of detaching from the
rar.ks of his supporters that large portion of the domirant
party in the Southern Slates, who, since lo-tJ. have Ickrd
to h-tn as their next Pres drnuai candidate, so mat. in
! 'IS they may be disencumbered of this clement of in
terna. d sorgaaiziti n, from tue disastrous consequences of
which they barely escaped .n lo4l He who does not see
:;.it this is ihe pr.mary object the ass a alt jp n Mr. Cal
n un. whatever be the ostensible pretext, is blinder than
an owl at noon-dsy.

I ne b nion proceeds tj show the absurdity of w hat it terms
a “paradox f and a«mj d one this, it "carries the war into
Atrtca.” And in the course of its remarks, the Executive
1 gan makes one admire.on, to which, en pamr.i, wc call
public attention. It is, that the mission of Mr. SI dell
"Wvi.d crrram.ji Aare pro red neetttful, but for one of
those frequent revolutions in Mexico which subverted the
government of Gen Herrera, and MU hi -hej over t .at on.

usu-per." If this bs ac. we ask. ought S. ddl'a rejection,
by that usurper, to have been deemed cause of war against
t..r people of that “unfortunate Republic” 1 D J it not rath,
er constitute a c.i tn to .ur forbearance, winch a magnin:

tit overthrow oi the Adminisirati .n of Herrera, which
had sg-."eo to tec tve h.m, and the sincerity of which is
tans acknowledged, is cued as a proof of Mexican dupil
c ty, and is admitted to hate been tne most influential cause
oi Mr. Toik's hjat.ic procrcd rig 1!
But, ie»vmg tins remark lor future comment, we return
to the assault upon Mr Calhoun. The Union, hav.ng vin
dicatcd the wiadom of the course pursued by Mr. Buchan
an, who, it says, would have “ r.chty deserved impeach

done, recur* to the Oregon quest.on—•• the settlement of
wh eb" (say* tbet paper) Mr. Calhoun "bat done more
thin any living man to ee’ay.” \Ve .j-iute a paragraph from
the arncie in the Urnon :
“ A» a Senator, it was hia poi cy of -mis erly inact v.ty
not to settle it by negotiation at a!!, but to krep it an
question until ottr emigrants -huuld have taken pi-ression of
the territory and spproprtaied it to themselves. This was ma
very s in le recipe for avoiding all danger of war w th Great

.t up, however reluctantly. We will u.,w merely refer ;oi

The Union then charges, that, in the very commence
ment of hit negotiation, “he .n effect abandoned our claim
to al terr.lory north of 49 ’—a charge, which, if it be true,
is not very serious, since Mr. Ben'on, now tnc Ajax Tela-'

Calhoun and Mr. Packennam, to establish this charge, the

Mr Calhoun’# successor”—in otlnr words, had not Mr. Bu
chanan asserted our title to “the whole” of Oregon aa be

abandoned it. and came back to the very lire (elected by
Mr. Caihoun himse.f!) “the consequence must have been
a pirt.t on of the intermediate territory between the 43ih
parallel and Columbia river.” Tnat is to any, that Mr.

what remarkable that the Union should denounce Mr. Cel

It is man feat that there is no real and sub* ant al ground cf

Mr. JcH.taox, of Md. made some remarks upon the ex
tinacious attempts, with a full know,edge that a maturity
' 1 1 •'•*-’ >ena:c w, -c in favor of the resolution, to defeat it.
He had already consumed many liouis of valuable time in
*.tiering amendments and culling f..r the jtas and nays up
on tnem.and if ar,y of to measure a connected with the
prosecution of ihe war should fail in consequence of ihi*
very extraordinary waste of time by the Senator from Mo ,
upon his head, before the Senate and bcore the country,
would a.l tht responsib it) rest. Such a course oi con
duct he had never before witnessed in the Senate.
Mr. BsvTON rejoined, and denounced the resolution a«
a sc.icroe to plunder the Contingent fund of the Senate, to
established a new parly press to denounce and oppose the
administration, and he called upon tne friends o! tho ad
ministranon io stand by him in bis attempts to defeat it.
He charged that it was concocted by the same parl or, or
some of them, at least, who were concerned in the famous
letter giv :.g or'era to denounce him (Mr. Benton) which
hu read the other day iu th' Senate.
Mr. Hand is a* *s.d the Senator fr m Mica rari knew hta
k rd teclings toward him, and his desire to cherish such
li lugs — but he did not like llio application of such terras
as "plunder'' and “robbery" applied lo a measuic which
h- had brought forward.
[ Mr. Benton explained that it was not to him, but to the
newspaper he had alluded ]
Mr. II did ', it know bow the sun might act to-night,
but when he left that chamber Inst night, there was no
man whom he would so .ntr see in the Presidential chair

Mr. Blxto* suid he wouldn't.
Mr. Hannxoxn remarked that that was probably the mo.
desiy ortlv ot Ihe Senator front Missouri, thenar thrice ro.
jecied the crown when offered to him by Mark Antony.
Mr. H proceeded, and some words ensued between him
and Mr Benton, when the latter declared that their peiion

Condition of tletieo.
The last New Orleans Picayune contains an interesting
letter from an officer of our Squadron off Anton Lixsrdo,
which, although it furnishes us with no later accounts from
M'-xiCO than had been previously received, presents a gra
p’lic picture of tho dissentmns that continue to prevail in
that districted country, in despite of tho war which rages
upon its burden. We regret that wo have not space for tho
letter itself—from which we lesrn that too present govern
ment is on the very eve of subversion, the confiscation o,
the church property having been already resisted by actual
outbreaks, and every where met wnh demonstrations of
popular hostility—a state of things scarcely avoidable, as
the clergy, whose inti icncc is omnipotent, had with almost
one voice protested against it, and closed their cathedrals,
wbilo the presses in their intercat ire openly counselling
rebellion. Capitalists had refused, in thia stale of things,
to advance money on the scrip—and the resources of the
Government are exhausted, while its credit ia paralysed_
The tr «>ps consequently are not only not paid, but they are
destitute both of arms and provision*. In such a hopeless
condition, it is sa d, Santa Anna, with ihe concurrence of
Ihe Army, and ot public sentiment in various quartets, me
ditate* the assumption of the Dictatorship—the only mode,
in which Ihe voice of faction, clam iron* even in the pre
aenec ol a foreign foe at their very doors, can be hushed,
and the energies of the Nation concentrated for one des
perate efiort. Even this expedient, however, will, wo ima
gine, fail to produce unity of sentiment and action among
tin* turbulent and faction* root. It seems to be madness,
amid such distraction and destitution, to prolong a war
every day’s continuance of which must protract ihcir cm
bvrra sin nts and enflVnnga ; but we fear that they will not
I sten to pacific propositions until they shall have once more
tried the lortuno of war. Tne result of the attack upon
Vrra Crux, therefore, may exon an important influence
upon the djra'ion of hostilities.

Ot r Postmaster fitaiRsi —We are told that one of our
merchants who has long been in the habit ol sending news
papers <o his customers after having drawn a pen around
his advertisement, continued to do ao not withstanding the
order of the Pi at Master General to tear off wrappers and
prosecute every ouo who should rnuke sny mirk on a news
paper sent by mill. A few days ago the merchant received
a note Iroiti the District Attorney, inviting him to call.
The invitation was complied with, when the District At
torney produced aevc’ul i I those newspapers which hid been
wrongiuliy abstracted from tho made by order of iho P it
Moter General, and in>|uired whither the merchant hid
nude these marks or caused them to be made. The mer
chant said yes, and Ihe Attorney informed him that he had
been ordrted to commence a prosecution for this violation of
Post Office orders. Tiro merchant address-d the Poet
Master General, rirpicsting that functionary to inform him
where Ihe provision of law could be fonnd whicb he was
charged with having violated. The answer was a discon
t nuance of the mai•. The Post Master General's arbitrary
orders were the sole foundation of the suit. Our impression
is, that a suit ngamst tho Post Master General for ordering
tile rnvrh pee of Iho papers to be taken off, and (ho papers
withheld from their proper owners, won d be likely lo
find not only law, but public, opinion to sustain it.—Journal
