INTENTIONS OF THE GOVERNMENT. The New York Albion says the Union, invoke* all the friends of peace to pxert their best efforts for its preservation. It thinks the danger immi nent. We sympathize in our wishes with tin Albion. We, too, deprecate any war between Great Britain and the United States, and we in ▼oke as sincerely as it does the blessings of pear between the two nations. But why does it indulg any fears at this momeni ? Why suppose tha . the call for fifty thousand volunteers points to ;• war with England ? We mean to conduct tin war against Mexico with all tho vigor in ou power. We may want twenty five thousand volunteers, or even more, to strike such a blow' a • may compel her to make peace. IVe shall in vade her territory; we shall seize her strong holds; we shall take even her caimtae, i, there be no other means of bringing her to "i sense of justice. We may want fifty thousand volunteers, not against England, but for the Mexi can war. Why need the Albion, then, attribute our military energy to any covert design of wa ging a war against England ?

The subscriber, under present circuri stances, can give no further indul gence, (unless he can advance the amount now flue, or uncollected, which he is unable to do, were he w illing,) I must compel ALL to *ettle on the fir»t ('nil, or levy in every instance, without regard to persons. The interest on the amount uncollected would consume, the whole of the subscriber’* pay, for the past year were it to remain uncollected much longer; therefore I wish this notice to apply to all. The subscriber will also inform those who pay Taxes in Portsmouth that he has been appointed the Collector for the present year, and inconse quence of the opposition he met with, from a few of the drones of Portsmouth ; who not only applied for Ids situation, but actually tried to undermine him, which compelled him to take it under circum • stances which will allow him to indulge no persona whatever, consequently, ho deems it his duty to say, that the first of July is (he longest indulgence that can be given ; and hopes, under existing cir cumstances, that no offence will bo taken at ths course which necessity compels him to pursue.
