Other than this outbreak and the: ex- ; citement caused bv the. arrival of Gen. ! linsadre, from Havana, the peninsular was perfectly quiet. The declaration of different depart- j menisof Mexico in favor of Santa Anna, j the Sig/o XIX, the official organ of i Yucutan, comes out very boldly for his j ca use.

This may account for the zeal manifested by France on the Texas and Mexican questions, her alliance with England in the war now prosecuting in the Argentine Republic, and the frequent reference of M, Guizot to an American " balance of power." France may endeavor to obtain the privilege from New Grenada, to undertake that project; and when completed to hold the key of the important commerce of the two great oceans. This is a new commercial ambition of France very creditable to her enteprise, but not promising a very successful result. It is not to be supposed that Eng. land and the United States, the two great commercial nations of the world, would consent to allow France to mount guard at the mouth of the canal, and control the commerce of those seas. But another trouble has arisen. The French Geologist report that immense .quantities of gold arc washed out of the sands of the river at thu Isthmus, which \ crosses a number of rocks under which are hurried more jjold than all France contains. In consequence of which a company lias been formed, not to diii the canal, but to search l<?r this 'old.

Should overtures of pence be made, however, they will be willingly heyrd and acted upon. It appears that what the Charlestonians term the abscencc of Air.

The next news from that quarter will be looked for with interest, as it will perhaps tri\e some information of the probable coursc of Santa Anna. Should his influence bo exerted to reiloro peace doubtless it will be brought about soon, for as wc remarked in our last, wu believe him to be a man of too much sagacity to expect success to attend his anno in this war. Santa Anna is ambitious of power, and to hold the reins j ol government in quiet, he will perhaps | be willing lo make great sacrifices and cede away a portion of Mexico in order to rule over the remainder.

The manufacture of beet sugar, the present year, surpasses to a remarkable extent that of any previous year. At 111?; i-iid til Li.sl \1:iv llicrc hnd hnrn ?n:i nufaetured 88,000,U00 pounds of sugar, nearly ten millions more than any pr?vious year. This paid into the treasury of the country over eight million of fr.incs or two and :i hall millions more than ia<*t year. There are now no less than three hundred and six manwiacto- | lies in full operation, and only three in the whole Icingdon not in operation, and this because they have as much sugar as they can stoie. Thiny manufactories have been uuded to the list duimg t!ie past year. So that it will be seen that the rivals of the sugar cnue are disposed to meet with courage the struggle invited by the recent law by which tlicy are placed, so iar as uuiies are concerned, on a level.

JVIason challenged his opponent, but McCarty, on the ground^hat his sight was defective, declined fighting. He was posted as a coward. Being a military man, blood only could wipe out the disgrace. Mason's challenge was ac :epted. Behold the weapons!?togeth a- they must leap from the dome of the :apitol; or sit each upon a keg of powder, and insert with his own hand, a slow match in the bung hole ; or fight with muskets at paces! Mason protested that the conditions were savage. MeCarty persisted in them. The parties met and Mason wnc ki~ - I.^iuhj U1UWI1 to pieces. A few weeks ago a duel was fought hy two men from Nonrth Carolina ; Dr. Johnson, one of the parties, was instantly killed. The stakes still stand nt ten paces apart ; the marks made by the fret at the turning of the body, and the deep stains of Johnson's blood, are still upon the earth. The ground is black all around, while the tall rank ^rass tells us, as eloquently as at Waterloo, of the richness of human blood. Cor. of the N. E. I'tirilan. The Picayune in an articlo on Santa Anna, and his probable policy, gives utterance to the following: It has been stated that subsequent to the conversation with Mr. Campbell, (given yesterday) an American citizen was despatched fro in Washington City to Cuba, to treat with Santa Anna about Mexican a flair.?. This rumor may or may not be true. We have no means ol knowing whalifoundation there is for it. The rapid visit to Havana of an officer of the navy, and his hasty departure for Gen.
