S um) of those profound philosopher in 'poli tics, it.oials, religion, finance, fashion, mid nllf that sort of thing, who fire continually inn no factoring 'tremendous excitements.' upon aj hcntic information' from 'the highest sources,' ti ll us that Europe opimsos annexation, 'not only to interpose a check to the further progress of republican institutions on this continent, but al so to counteract the growing influence of thiil republic on the masses of Europe !' This is a Imut a profound as the suggestion that the Fc doral Executive arc blind to every thing amnmlj t'icin, because they do not proclaim all their movements and tell all their secrets to 'our uuri v.illed corps of reporters.' The government of the 'nation ofshopkeep era' care nothing about the growth of republican-ii-ni on this continent, or any political influence which it may exercise over the masses of Eu rope. They have no fears about the influence of republicanism at home. They well knows that the present political institutions of England,?! a .lord as much liberty, theoretically and practi cally, as much security to person and property much 6cope to private enterprise, as any re publican modifications that might be introduced there. And they well know that if the crown aud the lords were abolished, and xubstituted by a president and senators, property, combination. of the wealthy, exclusive interests, political job bing, would govern the country as much, as ab solutely, ns at present. And they well know that if England is shaken by a violent revolu tion, it will be excited by hunger in pursuit oi bread, and not by political speculation in pur suit of theories. And they know that the go vernmcnt8 of Continental Europe are intent on developing their own resource.", enconragine the industry and enterprise of their own people, and closing their ports against that of Britain And hence they know that continental inonar cliy is quite as hostile to British interests as continental republicanism could be. And fur thermore they know that, as freedom from all needless restraint is a republic theory, the) would have more hope of revival to Bri'ish tradi on the continent, from continental republican ism, than from continental monarchy. The opposition of the British Government U annexation rests upon totally different ground and ground much more congenial to a 'nation ot shopkeepers.' They are verv desirous of divi ding this continent among independent nations without the slightest concern about their form of government. Indeed they know that with al tne increasing immigration from hurrpe, its present wilderness must be principally settled by Americans, and that American republican iwn will be the government of every natiun es lablished upon it. But they greatly dread its union under om confederacy, knowing that such confederal would eventually, and nt no distant period, re duce Britain to a secondary commercial and na val power, while the division of the coiitinen among several nations would render them harm less through their discords. Then the Brilisl want Texas and the country contiguous to thi South and West, for the support of their eottoi manufactures ; for they ore not sure of the ca pacity of India for producing the American va rietiea of cotton, or of being always able to re tain that dependency against the increasing power uf Russia. Then they want Texas for smuggling point, through which to coiumani the market of this continent for British manufac turep. And if able to keep us ontot Texas, the) will be bitter able to acquire California. Am having accomplished this, they will build their railroads from the Pacific to the Gulf of Mexico and thus not only shorten the road to China, bin monopolize the China trade for this continent. But the main object tor which they seek tin prevention of annexation, and to which they are encouraged by the insane ravings of the .South Carolina politicians, isthedivision of the Union and through that division, the command ot tin I whole. If they can maintain Tcxna in iudcprn deuce, and under British influence, they expect what u cerium class of Southern politicians hav threatened, an union of our slave Slates with Texas in a separate confederacy. And if they can accomplish this, they know that they will' command the Southern markets for their manu-l lectures by free trade, and the Northern by smuggling. A very deep intrigue may be in progress between British rtatesmcii and soim of the ultra disunionists of tho South Carolina school. The former seem to be changing their views in relation to slavery. And if they shout. the hostility ot the latter to Britain might sub aide into the amicable fueling that reigned ii the days of nullification. We go not too fur ii Faying that the safety of this Union depends on the annexation of Texas and the occupation of Oregon. Phil. Ledger.

His parents were emigrants fiom Ireland, who had the revolutionary war brought nn enemy into the neighborhood. It now became necessary for e- ven boys to shoulder the musket or rifle, and at the tender age of fourteen, encouraged by his pa triotic mother, the young Jackson, accompanied by his brothers, sought the ranks of the Ameri can army, and ranged himself under its banners The 'U'axhaw settlers, among whom were the! facksons, were obliged to retire before the Iiri tisth into North Carolina. They, however, soon returned to the Waxbaws. Shortly after theii return, a band of forty patriots, with whom were Andrew Jackson and one of his brothers, (the o thcr having already perished in the battle of Stoiio) were surprised nnd routed by a snperioi British force, many of their number being takenlj prisoners. Jackson and Ins mother escaped, hut n the following day, having entered the house of a frienil to procure food, they were captured Jjhy a marauding party of the enemy. An anec- lnte is told of Jar kson's conduct on this occasion. jPieing ordered by a Hi itish officer to wipe the tnud ofThis boots, Jackson peremptorily refused demanding the treatment due to a prisoner oi war. On his continuing to refuse obedience to the commands of the ollicer, the latter became (last became mutinous. Jackson used every ef Hof the I Jiiitcd States. lie held this office unti inolcs, who had been perpetrating bar baron luttagcaonthe settlers. This he accordingly Jid. In 1812 lie was appointed Governor of the Florida Territory which had been ceded bvK a i - 'mi BaSpain to this country. In the middleof the year he proceeded to the scene of action (Pcnsacola) .and after some vigorous action on his part In placed the adininistaation of the territorial go vernment on a firm basis. His health obliged him to return to his farm at Nashville at the close ibliged for want of provisions, to return to Fori ailures of contractors to supply his army, the atroops suffered the extreme of hunger, and at itM) warriors weru killed and captured, but wastfof the year. Here he remained occupVd with rural a flairs until l$'2t. He was then proposed is one of the candidates for the Presidency , but m the election he was defeated by Adams. II (again stood in 192 and was elected President fort to prevent their return, and succeeded in ptel'.ing revolt after revolt. Having waited in vain for supplies, he was at last compelled to yield his reluctant consent to their return, and was thus deserted by all but about 100 brave Umen. In January, a fresh force of a bout tWI volunteers having reached him, he penetrated to Emuckfaw Creek, on the Tallapora river. Iwhcrit he touuhtthe Indians, leaving nearly 200 of their warriors on the field. From the weak ness of his force, however, he was obliged ti retreat to Fort Strothcrs- Toward the end of February, his army was increased by a fresh draught of militia to tin mimhcr of H.")00, and he Commenced his march tor the "Horse Shoe" Bend (Tohopeka) on the Tallaposa river. Here the hostile tribes had concentrated their strength, and having fortifi.-i ihe bend, were determined to make a desperati and final stand. Jackson arrived in the neigh Uirhood of Tohopeka on the "(Sth of March, am' m the morning of the 'J7th commenced the at nraged, and, drawing his sabre, struck at th.iltnck. Both the attack and defence were man head ol the young Jackson, which blow Jackson caught with his left hand, receiving a wound. the mark of which he carried with him to his grave. His brother, for a similar offence, had Kliis head laid open by a sword-wound, which af terwards caused his death. The two brothers were carried to Camden. r: where they were imprisoned until after the bat tle of Camden, when they were released by the xertions of an affectionate mother. This heroic woman shortly alter expired near the city of Charleston, to which place she had gone on ai rrand of mercy the relief of the suffering A inerican prisoners. Jackson s remaining brother Iso died about the same time, leaving him friendless in the world. The war was brought to a close, and J.ick'oi naving conrracreu an intimacy with sonn wealthy and rather dissolute young men belong ing to v liarleston, anil who had been staving at the Waxhaws, now accompanied them on theii return to their home. In such company his mall patrimony soon dwindled away, and Iip wa hourly contracting pernicious habits. liefore it was too late, however, by an energetic step, h. 1 ii- . I t . .... oroKe on iroin uis evil associates, ami in the win ff ler of 1751, at the age of is, he retired to Salis ury, North Carolina, where he entered a law yer's office, ami commenced the study of the law In two years he was admitted to practice, and lot liking Salisbury as a theatre for his talents he emigrated to Tennessee, (East) and alle; wards to Nahville; where, in ITS he located himself permanently. Here he soon obtained a lucrative practice, and was also distinguished among tie citizen soldiers and bold splits of the place a-t ine of the boldest. Ill 17:li, he was elected one of the members of i Convention, assembled to frame a constitutioi lor the State. In the following year he was sent to Congress, to the House of Representatives and in the next he became a member of the I'ni ted States Senate. He resigned however, in th. same year, not being satisfied with his political duties at Washington. While he was still a' Washington, in the capacity of Senator, the Ten nessee militia, without consultation with him had elected him their Maior General, which rani. e continued to hold until 1st I, when he receiv- 1 the same grade in the regular army. Inline liately on his return from Congress h-'wasap pointed one of the Judges of the Supreme Coin I if Tennessee. He entered upon the duties oi lis office with reluctance, and laid them down is soon as he conveniently could, retiring to his arm on the Cumberland river about T2 miles a hove Nashville. Hern he remained occupied with rural pursuits and pleasures, until the new I a war with Great Britain, in 1M2, called bin nice more into the service of his country. Whei he United Slates Government authorized th ailing out of volunteers, Jackson, as Major Gen rat, published a spirited proclamation to his di vision, to which .'ilill brave fellow readily re ponded and assembled in Nashville. Jackson leceived instructions to cairythem down the Mississippi, for the defence of the lower country which was thought tube in danger. In the nonlh of January, 11,, be conducted his troops to Natchez, where he had been instructed to a- wait fuither orders. Heie he continued for se Jv.-ral weeks in bivouack, drilling hisariny.

C, files of papers from Havana have been received to the 8th instant. The T.ritish Mail Steamship Meday arrived at Havana on the 7th inst., from Vera Cruz, which port she left on the 1st inst., having on board Gen. Santa Ana, lady and family, who were ban ished from Mexico. They were going to Vene- j.uela. General Santa Anna was received with every mark of respect on his arrival at Havana, fjbeing escorted to his lodgings by bands of music, while little attention was paid to Genejal Bus tainente; thus showing that popular opinion was piitu unfavorable to the newly constituted au thorities in Mexico. No paitieutars are eiven is to the course pursued by the Mexican Govern ment in banishing Santa Anna, but Captain P. understood that the decree prescribed an absence often years that his private property was re spected that he had with him a large amount of Imoncy, and was in good personal health and spi rits. The British Mail Steamship Dee also arrived it Havana on the 7th inst., with General Lusta- mente on board on his way to Mexico. It is stated that all anticipations of war be tween the United States and Mexico had subsid ed; and a strong practical evidence that such was the case, says the Charleston Courier, is tie? fact that the Neptune, the property of Mexicans refit, which aL'ed with exceeding skill, and the contest wa severe nnd bloody.

General Jackson was now appointed a Com nissioner to enter into a treaty with the con piered tribes, during the ratification of whicl he received information that a British force hat' liocn landed at Pensaeola, under the very ey f the Spanish Governor nnd were proceeding to arm and equip hordes of savages, who had ta ken shelter in the neutral territory.
