It was the death of Mr. An thony Beemer, caused by the accidental discharge of a gun The particulars of the circumstance as fares lean learn from Mr. Robert Gregg (at whose house the accident happened) are as follows: Mr. Besmer was moving from Indiana, where he has been living for some time, to Lancaster, Pa.: he stopped at Mr. Gregg's for Ihe purpose of feeding his horses, and while they were eating, seeing a squirrel he went to the waggon for (he purpose of getting his gun to shoot it, but while in the act of taking it out, it was in some way discharged, and 4hm 1-1 1 ntJtPA.t ,Iia Pifrh l.mnl. an A InArraA in tt. back pr nf th- head.

' Our minister has returned to- the United States The head of the Mexican government has refused to receive him as the agent of the United States, and in a manner which is calculated to aronse the pride and indignation of our people. Our govern ment will, no doubt, in its own good time asoertain It the facta of the transaction from Mr. Slidall him self, weigh its duty to itself and to the world, and decide what course it owes to its honor, and to its rights; The Executive will take all pr9per time to make up its opinions, and recommend ths proper measures for their adoption to the Congress of the United States. . . : Meantime we are furnished, through the Mexi can prints, with the correspondence which has closed the negotiation between our minister and the -Mexican minister of foreign relations.' We lay them lilts evening before our readers. They will be particularly struck with, the dignity and ability which have throughout characterized the conduct of Mr. SIMell, as well as with the sophisms which have emanated from the Mexican minister. The world will see how ilimsy are the exceptions which the Mexican government have taken to (he reception of Mr Slidell They profess themselves willing to treat wilh him as a Texan negotiator, but not as envoy extraordinary and minister pleni potentiary, to adjust all the points of difference be tween the (wo countries. Why this distinction? Why settle one question, which except in the line (o be run from the Rio Grande, has, iij.iuct, settled itself.aiid yet refuse Co -settle rkh ps our other grisvaoces. which will tester with time, and would promptly bring the two counuios again into collis ion?.. Where is the wisdom of this course? - Can we permit our citizens to be cut off from the in demnity to which they are entitled by a specific treaty! Can we permit their unsettled claime to remain unadjusted forever r Where is (he wisdom of this species of negotiation? - Why try to close Up one breach, and leave .Others to remain open at ths hazard of involving the t.vo countries in future ware Besides, asour minister justly remarks.- "j.,-, k, -.' , .,' The Mexicee government cannot shift Ihe res ponsibility ir war upon the United States, by as suming that tbey are tha aggressors. A plain, un answerable fact respond (a all tha subtleties- and sophistries by which it is attempted to obscure the real question. - The fact is, (h presence in Mexico of a ministerof the United States, clolhed-with full power to settle all the questions in dispate between the two nations, and among them (hat of Texas. Their complaints are mutual; the consideration of mem cannot be separated, and they must be set tled by the same negotiation, or by the arbitrament which Mexico herself has elected." ' .. Another objection trumped up -by the Mexican minister to a negotiation with Mr. SlideH, is, that " a part of her territory ie occupied bv the soldiers et a nation who intends, without any right whatso ever, (o make herself master of; because her ports are closed by the. squadrons of that same nation." And again he remarks" the United States, which, under frivolous pre texts, avoid the conclusion of an adjustment, and at the same time that they propose peace, oraer ueir . squadrons and their troops to close our ports and invade our frontiers; and now require of us an impossible, humiliation, in order have a pretext.lt not a motive, to enter upon hostil ities." A similar insinuation it thrown out in the denunciatory procUmau'on of Gen. Paredes, which we published yesterday. Will the Mexican gov ernment please to. recollect how grossly regardless (hese statements are of the facts ? We witdrew our squadrons trom Vera Crz when Mr. Slidell ar rived in Mexico, about the 6th of -December. -', Our troops did nol advance an inch towards, the, Kio Grande. '' The negotiation opened under these, sus -picev.Ttfat government, howerur .began to sophis ticate, aod show an unwillingness "to receive bur minister. v V . . ; These were under the eoveroment of Ilsrreia. j...,v,vt-minIUinioi ma repuuijc,,-.we re monstrated sxainst his discourtesy , and be answer ed our expostulaiioiur by menaces of wr ! But these not being violent eueurh. a revolution broke out under Paredes, with pronunciamentoe bfeatb-' ing more defiance, and bolder threats of -war against the United States.. What course were we to adopt?' Whilst our minuter was Communicating with his ewn government, about his reception, we heard rumors that even his person might be in danger. W ar wis threatened against everything Amor kan. yy anew, not wbn the blow inigiit Ml upon Tex t , 1 as, upon our citizens in Mexico, our commerce on I .u - -. . - : . . t . i. . . . f i DH DT.CH UUOU QUI IU1UISICT. Ill inB UUQBl Ol these revolutionary symptoms, what were we to do.' We have advanced pur troops on our own soil op on the bajifcscf the Rio Grande, to look after the Mexicans, Who threatened us from Matamoras. We sent a small 'souadron to protect our minister and pur countrymen, both by sea and land, Our troops and our squadron were distinctly instructed to respect the rights ol the Mexicans to use no force not to fire a gun except we were attacked. Our minister' was detained in Mexico we spared no means. to adjust the differences with Mexico we risked eveo a little character lest we might shut th door too hastily, and cut off the last hone of ne gotiation. " It was nol to lmtimidate Mexico, then, as Parades insinuatesbut to protect ourselves against the war which Mexico threatened to invoke, that we sent in that direction a few ships and a (ew troops. Such are the circumstances ot this attempt at negotiation, which we have sought for the sake of peace, arid Mexico now idly threatens to ex change for t state o( war.
