the MEXICAN WAR—PURPOSES OF
1 THE ADMINISTRATION. The following more than semi-official disclo re of the views and purposes of the Adminis tration in its war with Mexico, is so frank and II that the Public, to be enabled to make up 1* opinion of their merits, requires only to know in addition, from the same authority, what it is, the part of the Mexican Republic, that the Viecuiive would consider as manifesting “a wnseofjusl From “The Union." The New York Albion invokes all the friends fneace to exert their best oflorts for its pres ervation. It thinks the danger imminent. We stmpath»*e in our wishes with the Albion.— \Ve, too, deprecate any war between Great Jlntain, and the United States, and we in voke os sincerely as it does, the blessings of reace between the two nations,—But why Joes it indulge any fears at this moment? Why ♦uprose that the call for fifty thousand vo!« u:i'^ers points to a war with England? We mean conduct the war against Mexico with all the vigor incur power. We may want twenty-five thousand volunteeis, or even more, to strike su<*h a blow as may compel her to make peace.— jf> shall invade her territory; we shall seize her strongholds; ice shall take eve* her capital, if tiicre%e no other means of bringing her to a sense of 'thrice We may want fifty thousand volunteers, V t against England, but fur the Mexican war.— Wiiv need the Albion, then, attribute our inilita- ] rv energy to any covert design of waging a war against England ? ... TUB u. STATES AND GREAT BRITAIN. The following Message was on Thursday trans mitted by ttie President of the United States to both Houses of Congress: Washington, May 28, 1846. X) the Senate of the Un ited States: 1 transmit a copy of a note, under date the 26th inat , from the Envoy Extraordinary and Minis ter Plenipotentiary of her Britannic Majesty to the Secretary of State, communicatings despatch, ululer date tne 4th instant, received by him from her Majesty’s Principal Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs. From these it will be seen that the claims of the two Governments upon each other for a return of duties which had been ltViMl in violation of the commercial convention of 1513 have been finally and satisfactorily adjust el. la making this communication, I deem it proper to express my satisfaction at the prompt manner in which the British Government has ac freded to the suggestion of the Secretary of State lor a speedy termination of thi* affair. JAMES K. POLK. THE UNITED STATES A MEDIATOR. We are rejoiced to learn, os we do by the Ar gentine News of March 7th, that our Minister, bv authority of his Government, had offered the mediation of the United States to terminate the war between the Argentine Republic and the neighboring Republic or independency of Para guay, and both parties accepted it. This is gratifying intelligence.—These three American Governments are now exactly where we have long wished to see all our American Govern ments, mediating between eaeh other, and set tling then disputes among themselves. LOVE AN1) GLORY. A gentleman from Iberville, says theN.O. Jeffersonian, married a most lovely girl, and in two hours afterwards marched with the volun teers. A rich planter of East Feliciana was engaged to a beautiful young lady, with no dower hut her charms and virtues. He reluctantly left her for the frontier, but, being desirous of securing to her his estate, he induced her to follow him to the city. They were married, and in a few minutes she returned to her new home, and he proceeded with the volunteers Glory attend these hero-husbands, and love and bliss welcome their return ! CIRCUIT COURT. Yesterday the Court and Jury were engaged in trying the case of Kennedy r* the Corporation of Washington. The plaintiff sought a compensa tion in damages for a personal injury which he sustained, as it was attempted to be shown by j Mr. Carlise, the plaintiff’s counsel, through the neglect of the Corporation in not properly se- | curing the side of an open lot, on the side of1 w icii is a precipice, in F street, near St. Pat rick's church. The defence was made by Mr. Bradley, attorney for the Corporation. A ver dict was returned for the defendant.

Some other cases be ing disposed of, the Court adjourned until the Fall Term._ * The Mexican accounts of the bombardment of the American fort opposite Matamoras have reached us. They are, as usual, very magnilo quent and gasconading—and they evidently think their shot did a great deal of damage. But “a change must have come over the spirit of their dream” by this time. The bravery and skill of the Americans, in Fort Brown, as it is now call ed, deserve all praise. The military spirit is rising in Virginia. Calb lor volunteers are made in Frederick, Berkeley, and other counties. In Berkeley, especially, there is likely to be a company or two, promptly formed.

Washington, May 30. The President yesterday re-nominated to the Senate, Henry Horn, as Collector of the Port of Philadelphia. The dominant party in the House held a cau cus last evening, at which it was determined to change the hour of meeting to 10 o’clock, and to take a recess from two to three and a half P. M.—continuing the evening session until a late hour; and also to postpone any action upon pri vate bills for five weeks and take up the Tariff' bill on Monday fortnight. Two weeks debate, or at most three, is the full extent which is to be allowed to the discussion of this great subject. The caucus was not fully attended, and it is understood that th# Pennsylvania delegation and other Tariff*democrats were among the absentees. You will perceive that the first order of the caucus was attempted to be enforced this morn ing by the introduction of a resolution to change the hour of meeting, but it failed for want of a two-thirds vote. It will doubtless be carried out on Monday, when the resolution will be in order. I certainly can have no objection to the change in the hour of meeting, and the holding of even ing sessions. I cannot forbear remarking, how ever, that if the House would devote the whole time that it is now in session to the transaction of the business before it, instead of trifling so much of it away in calling the yeas and nays, upon unimportant questions, and on motions to adjourn, it would be found sufficient, not only for the consideration of all public measures, but of I * • private bills also, (which cannot bo postponed in I justice to the suffering claimants) within the lime most generally named for adjournment—the 20th July. I do not think, however, that the aspect ol our I foreign relations is such as to justify the fixing of a day for adjournment at this time. If the day is agreed upon by both Houses, it would re quire the action of both Houses to alter or rescind it, and circumstances may arise to render it extremely desirable that the conservatism of the Senate should not be placed in the power of the demagogucism of the House. 1 shall look anxiously for thdjfee^s from the Army which we shall probably receive this even ing. If General Taylor has met with a strenu ous resistance in his attack upon Matamoras the war will be a short one, for I cannot doubt that ; he will capture the principal part of the Mexican Army; but if the Mexican forces retreat to the I J interior without offering battle, we shall have a i long and tedious war similar to the Florida cam | paigu. _ [COMM UN IC ATID. It being understood that a representation has : been made to members of Congress that the pro perty holders of Alexandria are opposed to RetroJ cession, it is sufficient to soy, that papers are in ' a course of signature throughout town, which will show how that assertion really stands. The Senate shall have the fact. A FREEHOLDER.

THE NEWS—N. YORK MARKET, May 30. The steamer brought us the important intelli gence of the reception, in London,of the news that ; the notice relating to the Oregon question had ( passed the Senate. This is considered by the Brit- ; ish press as an important matter, and L generally ! commented upon. The tone of the Times,the lead ing London Journal, is pacific, and the opinion is more strongly confirmed than ever, that our re lations with Britain will be nmicablv settled.— At this partienlar time, when we have just open ed a war with Mexico, it is of the highest mo ment that this favorable view will be ultimately obtained. It appears that the British Government have resolved to run a steamer Horn Liverpool to Bos ton, or New York, every week. This is an im portant link in the communication between the New and Old World. The intercourse will be so frequent and constant, that capital and skill will be more and more attracted to this country. The grain market in England had not improved. Indian Corn, however was an exception, and sold at an advance. Cotton, it will he perceived, has gone up Jd., and the market was very firm. Tar without change. Rice in good demand. Ashes a little higher. The money market in London continued to be abundant, and the rate of interest 3& a per cent. The news of the passage of the Oregon notice had a slight effect on tlie market, but it proved to he hut temporary. Trade continued to be in a healthy condition, and produce gener ! ally improving. Ori the whole the news is decidedly favorable. The fact that money has become plenty, and trade active, is of the greatest importance to u«. Whenever the pur-e strings are tight in London, its effects are sensibly felt in Wall street. 3 o’clock, P. M. Private letters speak more strongly than the published accounts. Flour was held more firmly, and sales quite active at *26s. 6d. a 27s. Cotton was very firm. They represent every branch of trade as improving. The money market is quite easy for produce and cotton, ami a prospect of a settlement of the Oregon question, more certain. This intelli gence has had a favorable influence in Wall st. Holders of produce, cotton and others feel, en couraged. The appearance of things is decided ly brighter. EUROPEAN CORN TRADE. London.—'The business transacted at Mark Lane on Wednesday last, May 6, was very tri fling; the demand for Wheat was exceedingly dull, not one purchaser appearing, unless compel led to do so by immediate want. The favorable state of the weather at the present time renders the farmers and yeomanry anxious to sell, at a II events a part of the w heats now remaining in their possession from the crops of 1843 and 1844. For American bonded flour 23s to 27s are the rates paid, ditto wheat 48s to 52s. On yesterday May 9, the Wheat trade was rather depressed In English little business was transacted and prices fell 2s. per qr. There was rather more inquiry for low qualities ot bonded and floating cargoes, chiefly for shipment to Holland and Bel gium. A great dullness, and almost absence of demand prevailed in other grains. Liverpool.—During the time that has inter vened since the sailing of the Britannia little business has been done in the Grain trade,#and for all leading articles the market yesterday was dull in the extreme, depressing the value of the free Wheats 2d to 3d per 70 lbs. below our last quotations, and rendering prices little more than nominal. Irish and Canadian flour also of which scarcely any sales were practicable, might have been purchased at a proportionate reduction had buy ers appeared during the week.—Indian Corn, still forming an exception to the general bearing of the trade, continued to meet a fair, steady de mand, and realised a farther advance of Is per 480 lb yesterday. A cargo or two of Mediteranean Wheat, float ing, the price of which has not been named, and a parcel of white Dantzig in bond at 8s per 701b., comprise the only transactions reported therein to day.—-Of States Flour, under lock, several hundred barrels have again changed hands at 26s 6d, and at that rate there are buyers, but few sellers under 27s per barrel.

Church, Mr. Freeman Converse was a native of Connec ticut-long a resident of Virginia, and for many years past Principal of the Academy in Leesburg, Va. To this responsible station he brought a soul filled with an ardent love of his profession, a mind prepared for its duties by a finished educa tion, arduous study, and a thorough acquaint ance with literature and science: enriched with a full store of classical knowledge, but, be yond all, an elevated spirit, a pure and stainless character, conduct above reproof, winning the entire confidence of all who knew him.—educa ting by precept and example also the characters as well as the minds of those entrusted to his care. Retiring in his nature, his heart was in his scholars, his home and his books. He taught his pupils to love knowledge a« he himself loved it. whilst at the same time the silent influence of his blameless character wrought its sare though imperceptible effect upon theirs. He is dead. Far from his birthplace and his kindred, he sleeps in the Church Yard in Leesburg, quiet ly and peacefully. None look upon his grave without feeling that a good man has departed. None who knew him will cease to remember his worth till they themselves lie down beside him. _ IPISH.—5ttbbl*. No. 1 gross Herring, just , received and for sale low by I QEO. O.

He] left that town on the 20th inst. with the volunteers who arrived here yesterday on the steamboat Cora. Previously to the starting on the boat, a Mr. Gardner, from the town of Sabine in Texas, arrived there. He stated that before be left Sabine, an express arrived from the northern frontier with a call from the authorities on the county of Sabine to raise forthwith a company of mounted men, and send them on to defend the frontier of the Indian country against the Chero kees, who were up in arms, or from whom, at least, hostilities were anticipated. The express rider informed Mr. Gardner that lie left a similar order—an order for another company of mount ed men—with the authorities of the town of St. Augustine as he passed there. There was great excitement along the Indian frontier. Mr. Morse says that he himself conversed with Mr. Gard ner, and has implicit confidence in his veracity.— New Orleans Tropic, 23</ inst.
