There le no . donbt that we shall march

as a sufficient, number of troops arrive
from below—and from San Luis to the city
of MeXlco. A communication received
from Gen. Scott by Gen. Taylor, a few
days ago. giving a brief account of the bat
tle near Jalapa, directs Geti. T. to move
at Once, or as early as possible, from San
Luis (where he expected the letter would
reach him) to the city of Mexico. So
that Gen. Taylor will not probably remain
any time at flan Luis, unless he receives
orders there, but, leaving a garrison for the
place, will proceed with the residue of his
command to the city of Mexico. The
command will probably never retrace its
steps this way, as there will be no occa

great Irish agitator,' Daniel O'Connell, at
G'enoa, whither he had gone to recruit his
his health, had produced considerable sen
sation; deep and universal sorrow was
manifested throughout Ireland. Dr. Duff,
an English physician, who attended him
at Genoa, thus describes his latettnotnents :
"On Monday, May 10111,1 saw Mr. o'.
Connel for the first time ; and he was then
suffering from profuse and involuntary di

and as a last resource, a further application
of leeches to the temples was advised, but
all was in wain ; he expired last night at
half past nine . o'clock P. M., apparently
suffering little pain. During the whole

it was with the greatest difficulty he could

UREADSTUFPB ,AND TUX SPECULATORS
Frain the Springfield (Mass.) Republican.
We have peen a picture somewhere of
the operations of speculators in the article
of breadstuffs which deserves general no
toriety. When the Cambria went last to
England, letters were sent from namerouti
points setting forth that the drain upon
American resources had been such that a
scarcity would soon he felt here. This
intelligence gave a sudden rise to prices in
England. And the Hibernia, coming out
soon after, brought,..aa we all know, start
ling accounts of the extraordinary advance.

dollars a. barrel for flour are • aware what
the effect of this intelligence was upon
1 the American market. There is PWbably
as much speculation going on in England
!Its there is here ; and so we are between
the upper and nether mill -stone, and can
feel very sensibly what the process is of
transmigration from grain to flour. We
are all of us in the hopper.
We may expect, for several weeks to
come, to be regaled with occasional bulle
tins from the speculators,•who have a sort
l of intuitive knowldge of what is going on
with the various grain crops now in the
earth. They will present us with an ar
ray of all the maladies to which these
crops are. subject. There will undoubted-I

From all parts of the Commonwealth

to their party as the needle to the pole, will

he will adminsister the Government in a
manner that will redound to the honor
and prosperity of the State.
We know of many such, and we are in
formed from sources entitled to the fullest
credit, that such friends of Gen. Irvin, who
are not attached to him from party predi
lections, but from a dete.rmination to have
a CHANGE in the administraticm of af
fairs, are numerous in allparts of the State.
The effect of such disaffection in the ranks
of our opponents, itiequires no great pro.

in hand, are struggeling to place our Ilag
over Mexico, upon the snowy sides of Po
pocatepetl and lztaccihuatl, thorough rude
- names-of which monarch mountains, we
trust, will recall our senses to the immense
distance that our countrymen have gone.
"The conquest of Mexico !" There is
an historical thrill in that phrase, which the
dispatches of Hernando Cortez, and the
eloquent pages of our own Prescott have
created,—but Cortez had as a plea for his
invasion, and his cruelties, a mission from
Catholic Christendom to break the idols of
the Caciques, and to unfurl the banner of
the cross. The secret of his success was
the religious chivalry
,that his mission in
spired, and no man can read his letters to
his "Invincible Emperor and .Sovereign
Lord" Charles the sth without a sympathy
for that enthu s iasm, however wrongftilly
directed. But what sympathy can Europe
feel fur us. or posterity hereafter, in the
causeless invasion we have on hand, the
invasion, be it remembered, of a sister Re
public, that copied our revolution, our his
tory, our constitution, our examples, until
fatal civil wars subverted all regular civil
government, and established only the
? Thus if Cortez and his Spaniards
did conquer Mexico, they conquered but
a nation of barbarians, of idolaters, of can
nibals almost, and in exchange for their
conquest, they gave them the Christian
religion, and the light of civilization, while
our conquest is over a kindred goveeemetti
and neighboring nation, from whom, if we
hail been injured, we wore yet bound to
suffer long, through sy nipathy for its mis
fortunes in having made an effort to be as
free as we had made ourselves, before,
however its people were properly educa
ted for freedom. Cortez was the servant
of an Emperor, and of a Pope, subduing a
nation of savages. We are Republicans
subduing a Republic, and a nation of Re
publicans.=and we have no excuse for
the subjugation we are attempting but our
unbridled ambition and wicked. .
To subdue Mexico, however, if this be
what some call our “roissien," is so palpa
bly to subvert our own Government, that
we are in hopes, even amid the intoxica
tion of successes, that the moral sense of
our country will be more and more awak
ened to its crime, and thus compel an end
to this iniquitous errand. Subjection in
volves incorporation with the U States,
as we cannot govern by satraps as the
Persians did, by Consuls and Proconsuls,
as the Romans, or by Vice-Roys, as the
Spaniards;—and such an incorporation of
Castilian, Mestizo, Mulatto, Indian and
Negro into our equal union, with the An
glo-Saxon race, is an impossibility. The
colored races there, we should have to re
enslave and the Indian to exterminate,
while of the pure European biped, there
would be but little left for an incorporation
with our race. Equal annexation, or in
corporation, therefore, 'caning be thought
of, and a pro-consulship, , or vice-royalty is
a species of Governmen utterly unknown.

Benjamin Franklin has remarked,"What
ever advantage one nation 'would obtain
from another, it would be cheaper to pur
chase such advantage With, ready money,
than to pay the expense of acquiring it by
war." The truth of thitetentimeni in our
vie*, is clear fretn the fact..that we could
have.:purchased the boundary line of the
Rip Grande and California,. all we. shall
probably, obtain by this war, for fifteen or
twenty millions, certainly, whereas now
we have already spent over. seventy seventy five
millions in trying to get thein by war.—
This expense is going on, Marjo likely to
be largely increased;—and under such cir
cumstances, we reiterate the declaration,
that it is quite time for the nation to rise,
through the ballot-box, and to order a
peace,—for. as Franklin said- oven of the
Treaty of the Revolution by which aye ac

But the most painful of all our reflex

be diverted, by ambitiotet men, from her
triumphal paths of peace into the worthless'

In regard to the mullet his operation. Success
is assnmed'im every point; and the direction to be
taken by each division, after forcing each print of
the Mexican entrenchment, is al clearly marked

placed.by Gen. Scott in , the treble; under his com

The most important intelligence brought by this
arrival relates town attack, by the Mexican guer
illas, upon a large wagon train, having in charge
$22 . 5,000 in specie, which IdVeratiiii. aid die
morning of the sth inst. for Puebla, under com
mend of Col. M'lntosli. 125 wagons and 600
pack metes were in the train, escorted by FMO
troops. The place selected for the attack by the
Mexicans, is represented na a defile road, broad
enough for a single wagon only. Thi_attriek was
made upon each extremity of ilte train and upon
the centre at the same time, the principal point,
however, being the wagons which were supposed
to contain the specie.
Forty of our wagons were destroyed—though
not those containing the specie two hundred mules
loaded with subsistence were taken and thirt). of
our men killed. Our low is variously esti
mated at From four to twenty, but private accounts,
from responsible -retirees, give the lona, as we have
done, at thirty men.
The cheek was so severe that Col. Mlntosh de.
tennined not toluizanl an advance without rein
forcements, and, after entrenching his men behind
the wagons, a courier was despatched to Gen. Cad
wallader at Vera - Cruz, who immediately lett with
a, force of 500 men and 1 howitzers.

T will now notice the singular communication
from "Germs ny and Union." The author wants
to know what is meant by the "singular and almost
unintelligible communication "-(ass he styles it)
that appeared in the Sentinel and Star of last

dull of comprehension; if ho had shorn "Hunt

in the article triadmlt of one moment's doubt as to
the meaning, or to justify the characterizing of it
as "singular," and "garbled," and "unintelligible,"
I confess myself entirely at a loss to discover.—
