Gil to be struck with the extraordinary similarity
between the angry ilentuiciations of the Mexicans,
and the arguments of their allies •in this country,
the Federal /eadersiuninewspapers. There is the
same absence of all allusion to the causes which
led to the difficulties between the two' countries—
the same studied attempt to place the blame upon
the Government of the United. States—the same
pictures of the excesses of our soldiery—the diva
sitton to magnify the spirit and resources of . Meta.
co. The newspapers and politicians of Meiieo, in
these parficubus, enjoy a common sympathy with
the Federlisbi here. The address of clergy of
San Luis Potosi is singularly like •the speech of
To this hour, what is the burden of the Federal,
press on the subject of the War 1 Allem of the ex
ecutive exaggeration of oarlosses and expenditures
—false statement of the excesses of our soldiers—
and daily .misrepres, entationsin regard to the origin
of the contest. There is never, to be seen a sine
allnsion to the wrongs Mexico basheaped upon us.
We hear nothing, of the murders she committed, or
the property She sequestered, in her intercourse with
this country for twenty years. We hear nothing. of ,
her violations of treaties with the United States—
nothing of her treatment of the, umber/ding Texans
of the scenes of the Alamo--aothing of
the horri cruelties in fl icted upon all who fell into'
her hands during the difficulties with Texas : on
these subject& there is a studied and unbroken
silence, that contrasts singularly with the silence
of the Mexicans themselves on the same sub.
jects. Even the English press, flit° this ma
meet, has said less against out country on account
ofthe war with Mexico than the Federalists, and if
it should fall into the main of the opposition, it
would only bebecause it would believe the Whigs
before it would - credit the Democrats.
The men who sympathised with England in the
revolution and the late war—who sympathised , with
the Indians dtiying, the Seminole and Florida wars,
cannot' denrade themselves now' ' by, sympathising
with the Mexican' . Bat it is tu be hoped that their
pestilential praises of General Taylor will not save
them from the doom which there opposition to
their country has so richly entitled them to.—
The North American is indignant at theAetermina
lion of the Democratic press to give tict the opposi
tion the name they deserve-r-tlie name of Federal
ists: a title which our cotempomry choose'. , ito think
insulting, because, as is alleod, there is no reason
for applying it. This is a mistake. The name is'
applied with the best intentions, in the kindest
epmt, and from the very strimgest Teutons. Let us
re fe r to a very few of tfiese maims : As the Fed
„feral p art y e ffese d,theute war, it opposes the pre
rent ; as it oppcsued the purchase of Louisiana, it
opposed, and still detionnees ; the annexation of
Texas;--the Federal party; during the late war,
favored- a great bank, 430 does the present Federal
party; the one tho ye had territory enough,
and was alarmed at to idea of getting any mom,
so does the other About the only relic of the old
Federal weed, that now insisted upon, is the an
cient horror of military chieftains, but even this . is
quallfied.hy opposition td the country's war. .
The term tory. which tht3 North Anericanpropo
sea Co give to the Democrats, as it is understood in
this country, means a party that opposes the.conn

been followed by that of Gen. Bravo as Vice-Pots

as tht Vice Presidency was abolished in order to

that the votes would then be officially counted and

Who gave-Santa Anna a Pass to return to Mexi

the Democratic papers' in regard to the war. And
they have even gone so far as.to reduce the pas
to writing in regular form, as though Polk had sent
the woollen lured hero a written card of admis

lovritu, is the form which. Ferfendism has given to
