Alluding to the passage through that city
tf three Government messengers to Mexico
the baltimoro Clipper says.
This looks as though our Government
anticipated a rupture with Mexico, which is
rendered very probable by the latest infor
rnation from that country. Tho tone nssu
hied by the Mexican authorities has recent
ly become very warlike and threatening, to
which they may have been instigated by
other powers" No matter. Wo stand
ready to repel by force, whether Mexico
come single handed or aided by others. If
she court's war with the United States, she
will have it to her hcait's content If she
bo assisted by a European power, it is not
difficult to foresee that the war will embrace
all the considerable powers of Europe,
some of whom are only availing an excuse
to strike at each other.
If any power has been so foolish as to
calculate on finding us weak from internal
divisions, it will discover its mistake
for, however we may differ about local mat
ters there will be perfect unanimity in repel
ling foreign aggressions, and in maintaining
the honor of the country.
Ii Mexico has dared to declare war against
us on the grounds assumed in tho note of
Mr. Bocanegra, and has to stand the result
sicglo handed, she will not soon bo in s
condition to offer a like insulf She is only
precipitating a fate which would be inevita

The folJowInff story is told In a' Parisian paper
Tho Incident, it n said, occurred in the Island of
Cuba. Tho talc is an Improbable one; and no doubt
originated in the inventive brain of some penny-a-liner.
"A protended American slave-trader arrived with
n cargo of COO negroes, all of whom he quickly
disposoj (if; but in about three weeks afterwards the
wholo of theso new slaves disappeared in one night
and wcro never seen agon. It was afterwords
recollected, that on tbo morning following tlier
evaslon, tho American sailed for Jamaica, with COO
European passengers. On making inquiries among
the planters who had bought these negroes, it was
learnt that most of them had becomo apparently
subject to.discasc, winch caused various parts of
their bodies to turn whito. A chemist also deposed
that he had furnished tho American captain with a
largo quantity of nitrate uf Bilvcr. llcnco it is
confidently inferred, that tho pretended negroes
were no other than so many vagabonds of all coun
tries collected in tho American ports, who. lent
themselves to this now specicB of fraud. This
is more likely, as, from their all speaking cither
English, French, Spanish or Portuguese, none
wcro sent to work in the fields, but wcro employed
in domestic services. Some few wcro appointed to
bo overseers of drivers, and wcro remarked for the
severity with which they treated tho negroes placed
under them."
