The chase and war wee the chief occupations of

were synonymous terms. Nimrod was most like
ly the firfct founder of this branch of the family,
and the legitimate descendants are numerous at the
present day, though somewhat degenerated, ytt
bearing unquestionable marks of their parentage.

their nedierecJ ( if they beuot in fact

are informed that as far as Mexico can proceed
ut tho matter : of war; she has proceeded.-. Her

known, the ability .is wanting." ;'

through our bu'iuV BecaCso her arlillpry car not
' thunder al our gnies. ' Iilood may not flow like
water because., -ur opponents may not be able to
Ehed it ; still we are at war, and as a cousequence
ouranr.y is called from its garrisons and encamp
mculs to occupy and guard a territory w hich but
last year was foreign soil ; and if they meel the
soldiers ofthe tint ion that but a. short time since
we recognise! as the owner or that same soil.nd
who have never 'yet yielded their claim, they iire
required to slay and vanquish them. This then,
after oil that has been sid to mystify tho subject
of Annexation,' is really a tear of conquest ; a thing
u:teily repugnant to the genius of our government.
Peace is the natural relation of one nation to an
other ; war is acknowledged to be the contrary of
the natural rclatioirand is only to ha exercised in
self .defence, when one party has shown itself so
regardless ofthe natural rights of auother, as to
endanger its poosessiou of those rights, the parly
so aggrieved is justified in appealing to arms in
elt-delence. no war can pussiuiy exist wnuoui
,n08t heinous guilt on the one side or the other.
In the present contest where must the blame res,?
Since ihe feebleness of our. antagonist renders this
. . consea,JeI1Ce as far as profit and loss
war of little consequence as far as profit and loss
are concerned, . it may be useful to ex.-mi e its
moral bearmg.Jor the rtght and wrot.g ot the case.
Has Mexico threatened the peace of thej Unied
S ates ? Never, and if she had4 her impo tney
renders it no more excuse for the Uniied States to
commence aggressions, than a threat would b j an
excu-e for a giant to crush a pigmy.
Has she invaded our territory has the burned
our shipping at our wharves, and shot our citizens
when endeavoring to escnpe from the conflagra
tion; has she" demanded that an 'armed emigra
tion should be stopped, and hV8 we complied ?
After all this, does he still persist neyonu an
hnnnd. of iuatice until we are driven to a War ?
n. . tiin nmiintrv- u aLeaLa diPtnn.ne. a Jeeble
nation uui a tew years oui oi ino most cnwirauiog
colonial bondage, humbly endeavoring to imitate
our own example ot sen-government, anu ai mis
men are enlisted, money is levied, arms and amu
nition is furnished, not from (he eea coast alone,
but from the most inland towns, to wrest from her
a province which she could confessedly, but for
this, retain? When years have passed and Bhe
still asserts her right though unable to enforce it,
do we cooly step in, annex the territory, in dis
pute, march our forces into it and congratulate
ourselves over the ease with which we can kill
every Mexican, who may, in the discharge of his
duty appear ii the field, and call it a justifiable
war? Here are two pictures drawn from life, tell
us which you recognise as the one representing
the Mexican, war and its causes? Oh ! say you
we recognise the picture but it is a caricature :
A caricature is, it ? Then pray, what is the fact?
Almost at the same identical moment the soldiers
of the U. States were searching the houses of pri
vate citizens at Buffalo to eiezearms which might
bq used in Canada, a rebelious province of Britain,
and an armed steamboat lay at the wharf at Pitts
burgh 200 miles distapt without molestation, re
ceiving men, money arms destined to aid in sub
dutug Texas a revolted province of Mexico. Is
this a caricature of ihe Punic faith of the "brag
uation"of the oarth ? Had different parties prac
ticed such contrarieties, this would have .been an
excuse, but no such thing, in them all the same
party prevailed and the same .men w ere conspic
uous. In ihe . one case our government was
wrong, in the other, as certainly right. . Our con.
duct toward Great Britain, a nation at peace, with
us ; the Laws of nations and the common sense
of mankind declares to be right. .
As certainly then our conduct towards Mexico,
another neutral nation was wrong, from thai con
duct pursued bv the same set of men to its present
crisis, the war has res-altcd, can we doubt who is
wrong in the contest.-

03 Exhumation. Two skeletons were ex

the surface, the larger one in a horiz nt!e pos.tion,
and enclosed in a coufib, and without the trinkets
usually found buried with the Indinns, which
leaves some probability that the remains mij:ht be
those of a white person, whose name and memory

Bailey had been drinkmg 6oda together, after
which Elliott was relating his deeds in a howling
alley, and bragging of his intcutinna iu future.
Kendall jestingly denied his courage to perform
his threats, ati altercation took place tho lie pas.
sed a blow was given Elliott in cch case re
ceiving the effront. After this E libit armed him
self with a revolver, and on meeting his enemies,
opened his battery on , hem ; which resulted in the
death of Kendall, who received the second fire in

Cassius M Clay. This gentleman has to
cenlly been favored, by his enemies, with anoth
ther opportunity of displaying to good advantage,
that indomitable courage both moral and physical
for which he is so distinguished. '
For some time past he has been confined to his
bed by sickness. During this period a number
of his foes in Lexington, held a convention and
appointed a committee to present to him a mess
age containing their views of his course of con
duct, and, with threats of violence demanding the
discontinuance of the True American. " The
following sentences will show with what burning
contempt Mr. Clay treated the insult.
'.- I say in reply to your assertion : that you are
a committee appointed by a respectable portion of
the community, ihat it cannot be true. Traitors
to the laws and Constitution cannot be deemed ro-
scspectable by any but pirates, assassins, and high
way robbere.- Your advice with regard to
my personal safety is worthv of the source from
whence it emanated, and meets the same contempt
which the purpose of your, mission excites. Go
tell your secret conclave of cowardly, assassins
that C. M.Clay knows his rights, and how to
defend them. - : . - . .

together with the unfavorable account of the

with the utmost good faith, paying tho highest
price which the prospect would justify. : .
If buyers elsewhere have temporarily paid
more, it has been for the purpose of attracting bu

THINGS IN PHILADELPHIA.
. A destructive fire occurred this afteruoo t, ( Au
gust 14.) about two o'clock, in a large brick buil
ding iti Dock-st. above Front,' accupied as a tan
ner's shop ai.d cotton Factory, which spread with
considerable rapidity. The city fire companies
were late upon the ground, the man in ihe steeple
not sounding the alarm for some time after. The
rowdy firemen of Southwark tho Weccacoe,
Souihwark, Marion, Niagara were, the first to
do any effectual service! The only fight which
occurred originated on ihe pari of ihe city compa
nies, the Ddligent Engine and American Hose.--This
took place in Dock st. below Third.to which
I was an eye witness. The Joss of property is
considernb!e,t wo adjoining bui'dings being surioas
ly i; jured. One or two persons narrowly esca
ped with their lives in attempting to remove the
machinery in the cotton factory! The same placs
has been on fire several times.
1 doubt riot, but CoK John Swifi wil be the
Whig nominee for the office of Mayor of this city
Hon. Joseph R. Ingertoll has been spoken ofbttt
I am assured be would not accent under any cir
cumstances. About 500 persons left the city this morning for
Now York Bay, with the object of gelling a sight
of the steamship Greit Britain. - , - .

You don't Want nothiiKr. m
dear Sally," said the good mother, when her only
darter got a husbad.and was about settling in the
woods, -you don't want any thing except a dish
kettle of the iron ware sort. When vour father
and I commenced, we had nothing but "a dish kettle
. 1 used to boil my coffee in it, and pour that into
a pitcher; then boil my potatoes in it and put them
on a plate while I nsed to slew my meat in it; and
always afierneals I fed the pigs'out of the sarae
kettle. You can do a great deal with a distf-keltle,
Salty, if you only have d mind to." " "s
