Com. Perry,l -;_ a nto ta epart in
case th'Mexicassset: todefend it -.
The inipreision% however; is,- that They=
will ledve'it ;ithout a struggle. -
Fromr the direction of the city of Mexi
co we can gain no intelligence- There ap
pears to be no doubt. however, that Santa
Annau.arrived there on- the 20th and 21st
inst., and at once took sides with the cler
gy against Gomes Farias. Nothing far
ther has been learned in Vation to the re
p-rt that there was a large foree of Mexi
cans, under La Vega, at- or near Jalapa.
The army will proceed in that direction in
a few days; 'nd then wve shall, know all
about it...'
I was, witness to a singular scene yes
tertlray,..A,large concourse. of. Mexicans
-old men, woman and young girls-were
gathered around the 'door of one of ow
commissaries, and each struggling, as you
have frequently seen people at the ticket
o'icer of a theatre on a crowded night, to
be first in. -On enquiring. 1 found that
rations of food were being distributed to the
hungry and half-starved throng.
Since writing the above I learn that a
Frenchman has-just arrived from the city
of Mexico who reports that there are not
one t'aousaud armed men, all told, on the
road from, this to the capital. He says
there were ntne guns it position at
' Puente.Nacional, but only sixty men to
serve them. It would seem perfect mad
- ness for-the Mexicans to continue the war,
yet I suppose they will hold on a while
The amount of spoils of war taken by
the capture of. Vera Cruze is immense.
Over 4000 muskets were laid down on
the ground, and it is known that a' great
nunber were left secreted in the city by
men who-went out in citizens clothes in
stead of their uniform. The numher of
cannon and mortars, in the town and cas
tie, is not as yet known, but it is already
ascertained that there are over 3000. To
this should be added an immense amount
of powder, ball, shells, Paixan shot. &c.,
enough to conquer the country all the way
to Acapulco. Quite a speoulation far

arrived from Santa Fe, which .diff'ers in
many respects from the accounts before
published. It appears that the' massacre d
of Gov.'Bent and others, was perpetrated
at Taos on the.18th of January,. and im
mediately runners were sent out .by the ,v
Mexicans to the different towns the prow-; d
ince, calling upon the inhabitants to assist
in the murder of the Americans.'
We learn also that on the 19th, the t
night after the murder of Gov. Bent and
his companions at Taos, Mr.. Romulus,
Culver, of Clinton county; L. L. Waldo,
a brother of the doctor, and Benj. Pruett,
of Jackson county, together' with- five
others, were killed at Moro, a town ofsome r
2000 inhabitants,and situated seventy-five
miles from Santa Fe.-After this outrage,
the insurgents, to the number of some 2000
collected at a small town called La Cati
ada, some twenty-five miles from Santa
Fe. Col,.Price, hearing of this, immedi
ately went. in person at the head of 350 ti
men, and drove them from their position,
killing 36 of their- nungber.-Ahout the
time of the battles between Col. Price and h
the insurgents at La Caoiada and Lam- r
bada, Captain Hendly, of the Ray county y
volunteers. who was on. the east side of
the mountains, in charge of a party of gra- ei
ziers, hearing. of the massacre at Taos and
Moro, immediately repaired; with about
90 men to the latter place, where he met
with a large body of the ener.y, and an h
engagement ensued, in which Capt. H.
lost his life. After his fall, his men, under a
command of their lieutenant,. fell back on
Vegas, and reported at Santa Fe the
condition of things. and the probability of >;
a well appointed force being-able to defeat u
the enemy at Moro. -On receipt. of this t'
intelligence at Santa Fe, Capt Morin of Y
Platte, with some 200 men, wan despatch= b
ed to Moro, and on his arrival the inhabi
tants fled. leaving every thing to the mer- I
cy of the Americans. The town, as before v
stated, was burnt, and every thing possible- tl
for the enemy to subsist upon was destroy- c

Dreadul Massacre.-Information enn- I
erning a frghttful occurrence, has recently'
been received by the British Goverunent, I
from its agents on the Wecsternt coast of b
Africa. A negro chief,. having 2000 slaves a
upon his hands, and being unable to dis- C
pose of them, had them all killed before 3
his own eyes. The French G ,vernoienth
has also bxcn .madlencquainted'-with this Il
horrid mnassacre. The murder of those poo' "
slaves ought to he avenged. The "naegro '1
chief" by whose order-the murders were
perpetrated, should' lbe made to expiate L
his crime by a penalty as severe as that d
which lie'so harbarously inficted-the 'I
penalty of death itself. Such an act' of y
justice might serve as a warning to all I
"negro chiefs," that they will be surely il
punished .for their misdeeds.-Farmers' ti

Dear Sir.-The credit given to you fa

manifested by many of our fellow citizec

stfication for this communication at thi

so, wio belie'ed in ain extension of th
ight.f suffrage in.Rhode Island, and in
onsiiti;risecurisg itQ ca it Dorrisln, c
rhat you plase; but "dilered with al1
motovers,' and the means resorledto,~t"I
tain that end. When such aiconsittutiot
r was reluctantly wrung from the opposing
party in Rhode lslapd. in obedience to the
popular will, the question as to whili
party was right, is seems to me, is necea
sarily foreclosed.'
I cannot see, with the limited 4informat
s Lion I possess, into the correctness of'any
s other theory of a repnbliean government,.
1 but in the admitted rightof the majority to
rule. Any other theory substitutes a sort
e of Divine rigbt in: a less number, to rule the
residue, a proposition to which a free peo
s pie will. never assent. If you attempt to
i transfer sovereignty, by: drawing a line of
distinctionb et ween) our fellow mlen, pray.
tell how, and where, you would draw it ?
s Would you undertake to say that the rich,
y the bankers, the monopolists alone, shall
exercise the sovereign power, exclude the
t poor, because they are poor? - Would you
transfer the sovereign power into, the
I hands of professional men, and exclude
t the farmer and mechanic, because they are
a farmers and mechanics ? Would you
transfer thie sovereign power into the hands
of good men alone, and exclude the bad ?
If so. who would you select as the umpire
in such a case, but Omnipotence itself?
It seems to me that the very moment we
depart from the conceded right of the
I numerical majority to govern, under a re
publican system, that very moment we
debate from the system itself. I am now
speaking with reference to the right.of our
own free white citizens, and not to slaves,
f and to such I suppose you referred, in your
depart with Simons of Rhode Island.
I think that if an attempt was made in
I the State of New York, or any other State.
. at the present time, to deprive the, numer
* ical majority of the right to govern, there
t would be such an uprising of the people,
in the shape of Dorrism as you call it, that
it would long be remembered by the peo
pIe of the United States; and that the
movers and abettors in such a treasonable
plot would be consigned to an oblivion
darker than that which shrouds the name
of Arnold! And in such a result, unless I
, much mistake the discernment of the
people, nine-tenths would most heartily
concur. The notion is intoletable, out
rageous, and cannot be sustained a mo
ment without changing fundamentally, the
1 structure of the government. Who -is
e prepared for, and who desires this change?
I am aware that there are eminent men
e in the country who are doubtless honest in
e their opinions, and who steadfastly adhere
to the old state of things, cling with re
markably tenacity to the errors of the past
- to the laws, usages, and customs of an
I tiqujty, however oppressive and inconve
r nient they may be; and they look upon
s human progress, and the gradual changes
I which that progress demands, as -unwise,
? imprudent, and revolutionary. There are,
however, a-vast . majority of: the people
1 .who honestly differ- with them in opinion

Dear Sir; I see by your 'letter, that
you have formed your opinion on a very
imperfect report of what I said; and in
order that you may see what I did say, I
etnclose the within, which contains a cor
rected copy of my reply to Mr. Simmons,
with my reply to Mr. Turney, and my
speech on my resolutions. You wtil see
-that if I aim opposed to a government
B based on the principal that a mere nume
m rical majority has a right to govern, I am
:equally opposed to the to the government
-of a minority. They are- both the gov
3 ernent of a part over a part. I am in
favor of the government of the whole; the
only really and truly popular republican
government--a government based on the
r occurrent majority-the joint assent of all
*t the parts, through their respective majori
ties, and not the mere government of the
Smajority of the whole.
s Such is thme constitution and government
of the United States, andI such are all
r really and truly constitutional govern
a ments. The government of a mere ma
jority of minority is not popular enough
for me, they are both in their nature des
. potic and not constitutional governments.
.I do not object to extended suffrage. I
have ever advocated it,-Ry Dorrism, I
mean the right claimed fur the numerical
r majority, that it has the inherent andI ab
solute right to govern, a sort of right divine,
like that claimed by Sir Robert Filmer,
-for kings.-Such a-right has no foundation
tand is inconsistent with the very idea of
'a constitutional government.
SWith respect, I am &;c.,
