Negotiations for Peace.
MR. BUCHANAN'S LETTS*
GEN. t4COTT'B MOVEMENTS.
BALTIMORE, July 18,
~extra of July 12th.
has received, by the arrival of the steam
ship which left Vera Crux on the
4thinst., files from the city of Mexico to
the 29th ult. Thikoventment paper pub
lished a communication from the Minister
of Foreign Altai,* addressed to the mem
bers of the Mexican Congress. referring
to diem a despatch from Secretary Ouch*.
announcing app ointment of Mr,
Trist. Mr. Buchinan's letter is dated
April 16th. h acknowledges the rectirpt
of the Mexican Minister's letter of the 22d
of February, declining to accede to our
proposition to send Commisitioners' to Ja
lapa, Hurons. or any other point, before
the blockade Or file Mexican ports should
be raised trrul - the-MA:csu, tu., itory - evac
mood by OCT troops.
Mr. Buchanan writes that the President
holds such condition absolutely inadmissi
ble, neither demanded by national honor
noT sanctioned by the practice of nations.
Ile urges that such a preliminary condition
would render wars interminable, especial
ly between contiguous nations, unless by
the edmplete submission of one of the bel
browns. He shows how puerile a course
would be for a nation which had tracriG
end men and money to-gain a foothold in
an enemy's country. to abandon all the ad
vantages it had Won, and withdraw forces
rri - &der 'TO induce negotiations, withoet
any'certainty or security that peace would
ensue from such negotiations.
He then cites the base of our last Wllt
with Great Britain to show that we never
considered for a moment that our nauon
al honor required us to insist upon a with
drawal of British troops before consenting
to treat for peace. jire sent commission
ers to Ghent when portions of our territo
ry were in possession of British troops,
and it .was notorious that while negotia
tions were going on at Ghent. hostilities
were carried on un both sides with unwont
ed vigor—the most memorable- &mien of
the war taking place after negotialions
had been concluded.
Such a preliminary condition to negotia
tions cannot be cited in modem times ; at
least Mr. Buchanan knows of none. Ile
then exposes the unusual conduct of Mex
ico under another aspect. The President
had desired to avoid the war ; had sent a
minister to negotiate a peace, even a ft er
the war was commenced by the attack of
the Mexican troops upon General-Taylor.
Tjte President had reiterated piopositions
with a,v,iew to ppcla -negotiations which
should put an end to hostilities. lie had
dechita lathe world that he would exact
no conditions that - were not honorable to
both parties, and yet the Mexican govern
ment 1i:1)i-refused to receive the Minister
seal. to her, and after declining to accede
to the opening of negotiations, Mexico had
never wade known upon what basis she
would consent to a settlement of the differ
ences between the two republics.
-.There will never be a termination of
hostilities, Mr. Buchanan proceeds, it Max
co refuses to listen to overtures which
have been proffered, and which tend to the
re-establishment of peace. The President
will not therefore make further overtures
ter the opening of negotiations until lie has
reason to believe that such will be accept
ed by the Mesienn government; neverthe
less such is his desire fur peace, that the
evils of the war shall,notbelitolonged one
day later than the Mexican governnaeot
makes it absolutely necessary, to carry his
determination into effect.
He hod sent in the capacity of Commis
sioner to the head quarters of the army in
Mexico, Mr. IC P. 'Friel, chief clerk In
the State Department, with full powers to
_conclude .a. definite treaty or mice , with .
- the United Mexican States. Mr. Trist is
recommended as possessing the full con
fidence of the President, and worthy that
of the Mexican government. In condo
' shin, Mr. Buchanan forbears iu comment
ing upon the closing passage of the last
letter from the Mexican minister, lest it
should give to his present note a lets con
ciliatory character than he desires for it ;
he re - Curs with pleasure to another passage
'wherein is expressed the pain with which
the Mexican government has seen altered
the cordial friendship which it - had culti
vated with this republic, the continued ad
vancement of which it had allay s admired,
and whose institutions had served as a mo
del of its own.
Such sentiments, rinitinues Mr. Suchen
an, the.rr :sident deeply feels; his strong
est desires are that the United Mexican
States under such institutions as prevail
with us, would protectand secure the liberty
of their citizens and maintain an elevated
position among die nations of the earth.
This letter the Mexican Minister ac
knowledges on the 22d of April, saying
that the President bad , instructed him to
reply that the whole subject matter of it
had been expressly reserved by the sover
eign Congress of the nation for its own
control, and that the- letter would be at
once thutsmitted to it for its action.
Wp 4earn by the, Mexican papers that
Congress was at once convened to bike
the matter into consideration, but up to the
29th June no quorum had been procured.
By a letter from a source entitled to
great respect we further learn that Gen.
Scott gave tbe, Mexican government until
theAlelitttit. to act upon the letter, when,
if nothing should be done, he would marel;
Nothing farther had 'been heard from
Generals Elatrwalader or Pillow at Vera
Cruz; but it is presumed that they had ar
rived at Gen. Scott's head-quarters.
LATER FROM VERA CRUZ.
The U. S. steamship Washington arri
ved at Mobile on the 12th, with a bearer
of despatches to Government. She re
ports that information had been received at
Vera Cruz from Tobasco, that alter Corn:
Perrry had left, Commander Bigelow
marched at the head of 300 marines and
sailors, and attacked about 000 Mexicans
whom they found encamped a few miles
from the city. The marines and sailors
fought bravely and routed double their
number with a loss of 12 men killed and
wounded. Commodore Perry, on receiv
ing this information, was preparing to re
turn to Tobasco.
No lawr intelligence had been recieved
from Gen. Scott.
The steamship Mississiimi. lying off
Antra► Lizardo, was discovered to he on
foams the 3d of July. and was not exting

(,arr. Scorn's Posmot...-In any oth
ertountry, or in any other war than one
between such troops as ours and those of
Mexico, the present position of General
Scary might well bo regarded as one of
extreme peril. With a very moderate
force he ocpupies a post in the interior of
a hostile- country, whose itritabitants are
in arms against hint. Numberless parties
of guerillas intercept his line of communi
jdations with the original base of his opera
tions, and the scantiness of his force has
compelled him to abandon one of
. the lar
gest cities of which he had taken palms
sloe. Of course this last will bo looked
upon as a tacit admission of weakness by
the Mexicans, and increased activity will
begiven to their resistance., Undoubtedly
the evacuation of Jalapa, a large and pop.
_ulotus town, whose occupation was one o
the first and isiost important fruits of -the
victor)"f of Cerro Gordo. is evidence that
Pen, tkott is much embarrassed for troops.
The bare fact that an American army
is situated as is that of Panora) Scutt, is
sufficient to alarm every man in the coun
try for its safety, except those who com
pose.- the_genpL.adiniuiatration. Mr.
Polk and his cabinet, however, appear_ to
be perfectly ewiy upon the subject, and
while every, arrival front the scat of war
brings us accounts of the active prepara
tions of the enemy, and confirmation of the
fact that General Scott is unable to advance'
because of numerical inferiority, nu 'neve
m:id is made by our government towards
his reeve and re-enforcement. • The con
sequence will be that General Scott will
be compelled to figlit,a. battle against supe
rior forces, when defeat or uo iudccisivu
result will be complete ruin. Let the re
sult of a general battle be but doubtful, and
all Mexico. in the front dank rear of
General Scott will be in arms.
After the battle is fought we shall prob
ably hear of re-enforcements being raised
and sent forward. It should have been
the duty of the administration to have a
verted the circumstances which now en
velope Gen. Scott in so embarrassing a
manner. In every case the Government
has exhibited its anxiety to hasten the
march of re-enforcenaenui after the mo
ment of the most presising necessity of
their presence had passed. After Geller
al Taylor bad annihilated the army of San
ta Anna at Buena Vista, and the whole
country was made aware of the perils from
,which skill and bravery, had rescued our
army, there was loud talk of sending him
re-enforcements. Although the adminis
tration was previously informed of his an
'crone position, they made no effort er ap
pearance of effort to aid him until the

arrival of Gee Pierce we have no means

THE GOVERNMENT AND Maxim—The
'Washington Union, in alluding to the char
acter of the recenknews from Mexico, says:
It is highly probable, as a private letter
fit/ILO/era ()aux limes, that Pen. Scott is
either in the city of Mexico, or in the midst
of an overture for peace.
It is now for Mexico to indicate her dis
position for negotiation. Mr. Buchanan
shows how repeatetlly we have tendered
the olive branch: and surely nothing would
have justified our frequent repetition of
pacific overtures, but the comparative feeb
,the nation to whom we offered
There id' nothing decisive, in these ac
counts, of the determination of Mexico.—
Whether we shall have peace, or a contin
uation., With° war, depends upon her.—!
Santa Anna has not, so far as we are advi
sed, declined this last offer for negotiation.
There is nothing in the notes which show
a deterMination to reject it. But, on the
other hand, the private accounts which ap
pear in the "Picayune" are rather opposed
to the prospect of pacification. No man,
however, can tell, nor form any positive
opinion upon the au.bjeg. Our govern
ment is certainly prepariug for either for
tune. Its desire is peace ; but, instead of
relaxing_its g efforts, it is making vigorous
' 1 preparations for active war.

Tue BREAKFAST SPELL.—Our readers
will recollect the significant looks and
sneers of the leaders of Locofocoism in
1844, when the Whigs told them that an
nexation of Texas, in the manner they
proposed, would bring about a bloody and
sanguinary war between dim country and
Mexico. They said this was a Whig lie;
that they would cuter into a bond, with se
curity, that there, would be no war ; that,
if war should grow out of annexation,they
winkl do the fighting, and not ask tile
Whiga to help ; and that, finally, if Mexi
co did propose to fight. they.would cross
over and whip out the mulattoes some
morning before breakfast. Well, we are
I in war, and have been fighting for the last
!fourteen months. with little or no prospect
of peace yet. We have created a nation
! al debt that we shall not be able to pay otr
in a quarter of a century, and are still go
ing largely in debt every day. We Lave
lost thousands of citizens in battle, in hos
pitals, and in ramp, and still thousands

Coeutx Vim:A.—The Cuelint Chinese,
like their kindred and neighbors, the Chi
nese, have come into collision with a Eu-1
ropean power. Two French vessels of
war, had gone to Thourane, to demand re-!
dress for imprisoning the French bishop,
(who had been sent to Singapore by the;
Cochin Chinese) and probably also to
make a treaty. They were received sp
parently in a friendly manlier, but infur
million was given of sonic treachery, and
of their hostile intentions. There were
great preparations in the furs, and five
large Cochin Chinese nien-of-war being
in readiness with a multitude of armed boats
which put the admiral on his guard. In:;
salt was soon offered. and they were or
dered to depart ; the French Commodore,
in self-defence, was compelled to attack
them, and after an hour and a half's- hard
fighting, two men-of-war were blown up.
two abandoned, and afterwards burnt, and
the Cochin-Chinese Admiral's vessel was
taken and burnt also. Private accounts
say that 1000 were killed. Only two or
three were killed, and sonic woundirl in
the French Frigates.
In GERMANS', emigration to America, on ,
a wholesale scale, is still going on. The
United States get the majority of the emi
grants, and near all the best. Some
Ines are entirely depopulated by this emi
gration mania, and the governments are be
ginning to be alarmed at it.
rope Pius IX., on the 15th
ult. gave audience to the son of the Libe
rator of Ireland, and made a eulogy of Dan
iel O'Connell in terms which must have
excited the gratitude and admiration of the
young member fur Hued alk. According
to what has been stated, at the moment at
which the visitor rose, after having kissed
the feet of the holy Father, the Pope said
to him : "Since I OM deprived of the hap
piness so long desired of embracing the
hero of Christianity, let me, at least, have
the consolation of embracing his son !"
And at the same time the holy father pres

WHEAT IN THE WEST.The editor of
the Rochester N. Y. Advertiser, who was
one of the Delegates to the Chidago Con
vention, gives the following result of his
inquiries respecting the stock of wheat at
present in that quarter of the west :
In our recent flying trip, we took some
pains to collect reliable information as to
the supply of breadetuffs which the west
will send forth during the present and com
ing season. Of course all such informa
tion muss be more or less uncertain, al
though obtained from the most reliable
sources. Hon. E. B. Strong, late of this
eity,•but now of Milwaukie, informed us
that the amount of wheat in Chicago, as
he 'learned front inquiry at the different
warehouses, is full four hundred thousand
bushels, and was coming in at the rate of
six to eight thousand bushels per day.—
The flour he thought was less than twenty
thousand barrels. At Michigan City, St.
Joseph, Sotithport, and the other ports on
Lake Michigan, the quantities of wheat
varied, Intt.oloold-indleetivelyfOrdi a very
ieige i'Brega ' . 4 . • • ' . •
As to t h e ensiling crop,we have before sta
ted that the appiehensioniCwhich had pre
vailed in Michigan were to a considerable
extent removed. A late number of the
Detroit Free Press states that the crop in
the State at large will be excellent. Twen-
ty counties are named which promise first
rate crops—and some of them will yield a
very large increase over last year. Six
counties only aro estirnated at tireafourths
of a crop; and only three at half a crop.
'rho surplus for the ensuing year is esti
mated at seven and a Ind millions of bush
In Illinois, though in Pomo parts poor,
it is thought the crops wily ho very nearly
an average one. The sone rutuark way

advised by farmers who.heye made a very
general tour through-the territory. -• '
Tut WHEAT HARVEST Or ILLINoiS AND
Mresousti.—The Wheat harvest in Illinois
and Missouri has been gathered. Of the
quality of the grain harvested this year
there is no difference of opinion. It is on
all hands allowed to be excellent. The
berry is sweet, heavy and well ripened.—
As respects its quantity, there is a general
impression that it falls short of an average.
In the southern districts it is very doubt
ful whether it quite reaches the usual mark.
The St. Louis New Era says :
"Upon the whole, enusi4ering its good
quality—the large amount sown—and the
trilling loss, sustained in getting it ih—the
Wheat harvest in Illinois and Missouri
may not improbably be found to yield in
good, wholesome breadstulrs. very nearly
as much as the best crops hitherto."

THE TARIFF OF 'FORTY SIN.
Increased importation of foreign goods
was one of the bkasings promised us by
the Lornforos, at the time of the passage
of the Tariff of '46. Secretary Walker,
in his famous report of that year, promised
us that if the tariff were cut down, fifteen
millions more of imports should come into
the country. T he Whigri replied, that the
importation of foreign goods would displace
an equal amount of home productions, and
drive those who made them from the man
ufacturing business to farming; thus in
creasing the embarrassments of farmers
by curtailing_the home market' lor agri
cultural products. "If," said they, "we
are to import fifteen additional millions'
worth of goods because we reduce protec
tive duties, it is too certain to admit of
doubt that the Secretary anticipates a di
rect interference with home productions
and a displacement of them by the intro
duction of foreign. The operation which
accomplishes this will neceirsarily drive
from their employments a large number of
laborer's, who arc to find a refuge in farm
ing. This must necessarily, curtail the
home market for agricultural products, and
I increase the embarrassments of farmers."
Such were the remarks of John Davis, of
Mass., in his speech of the 17th of July,
1846. It now appears, however, that the
evils anticipate/1 from excessive importa
tion will far exceed the Calculations of the
!honorable Senator. Instead of fifteen, we
are to have forty millions of increased im
portations ; and it is particularly worthy
of remark, that this ruinous increase of
importation exhibits itself most strongly
!at tlte very moment when the demand for
I our breadstuffs in Europe begins to de
! cline. It is at such crisis that we find our
`selves importing a million a . week beyond
I the importations of the corresponding pe
riod of the year previous. Assuredly, the
worst predictions of the Whigs upon the
I enactment of she tariff of '46 are about to.
he realised. We are now at the begining;
but the end is not yet. Those who shout
! ed "lo tritimpher. when starvation and the
potato-fin in Europe bad caused a Jempo
rary demand for our bread-stuffs which
neither they nor any other human being
ever expected or predicted, now find occa
sion to cover themselves with sack cloth
and ashes. when the mere prospect of a
good harvest in the old wodd has put to
flight all the free-trade fallacies and phan
toms in the new.
We seem already to he reachinff that
state of things which Mr. Niles, of Con
necticut. one of the Democratic Senators,
in his speech in the Senate on this free
trade tariff, predicted as its inevitable re
sult—a result destined, in his view to
prove equally calamitous to the country
and to the Democratic party which enact
ed it. "Verily," said he, addressing his
Democratic associates, and in his indigna
tion at their infatuation, adopting language
bordering upon irreverence, "wrath is gath
ered for you unto the day of Wrath; and
there shall he weeping, and wailing, and
gnashing of teeth !"
PRAI'DS ON TUE PenLIC Woaxs.—A
communication in the last Harrisburg
Telegraph discloses some important facts
for the Tax-payers of the Commonwealth,
showing that for years past enormous
frauds have been permitted to be carried
on along the public works through the ne-
fleet or incompetency of the public agents.
The Telegraph says "there is no doubt in
the minds of those acquainted with the
conduct of the State mats .last year, that
the State was defrauded out of $250,000
or $300,000 through the idleness or dis
honesty of its agents. The election of
Mr: Power has to a 'considerable extent
arrested this system of plunder, and will
save the State the present year not less than
one hundred and fifty thousand dollars !
And the election of another Reform Can
didate, JOSEPH W. PATTON, will increase
the saving, we have no doubt, to the enor
mous sum of $300,000 annually. A mat
ter so important to the interests of tax-pay
ers 'we hope will not be forgotten. A re
form that saves already $150,000 a year
to them, and promises to save $300,000,
if they do their duty, is worthy of their at
tention and their votes."

to the occupant of the throne. Aroused by this
development of uneasiness for the fide of Gen.
steott's army, the Wushington Union has deemed
it necessary to open its columns in defence of the
Administration, and in doing so undertakes to
pronounce judgment authoritatively in regard to the
issues hetwern Gen. Scott and the administration.
Whereupon the North American puts the follow
ing pertinent interrogatories to the official editor.
It is to he hoped that Mr. Ritchie will find it con
venient to answer them:
Ist. When Gen. Scott left Washington last
November, did he not receive both from the Pres
ident and Secretary of war the moat explicit aosu
mnoci of thtir confidence and support ?
2. Was it not distinctly promised that the ten
new regiments, of whose organization he had fur
nished the plan, should be on the Rio fOrande by
the first of February
M. Did not the administration, even before Gen.
Swat reached New Orleans, open the plan at
Washington for superseding him in his com
4th. Did they not allow the bill for the organi
zation of the ten regiments to sleep in the House
of Representatifes, after they were 'unable to car
ry out their plan of iffperesdinglicant and Taylor,
until ag late a period that throe troops could not be
made available in the attack on Vera Cruz--thus

THE WHIG PARTY.—The triumphs of the
Whig party in, In every Laguna, to be agaihed
to its principles. They have been won by the
truth and not by the names or the pensioned popu
larity of men. Our principles have been urged up
en the country, and by voices worthy to save a ro
publir,for years. ' Our pottiest aced, broadly and
explicitly explained, has been constantly prockins
ed ;, and there is eveilreason to helieise that it
has the support of a very large m ajority of the
people. That creed has received the favorable
testimony of every Whig of the nation. The re-
Molest sections have united upon it, and the most
gigantic intellect., differing upon many minor
points, agree in support of the doctrines and policy
adopted by the party. The lights of those minds
may have required time to reach the intelligence
of the country—as remote stars take years to reach
our orb ,+—but that time has been afforded. The
process of political enlightenment hoe been no
brief one. For years the nobleet and wisest pa
triots of the ago have been urging Whig princi
ples upon the people. Events hare illustrated
those principles; and there is every reason to be
hove that the opinion of the nation wax never so
strong in support of Whig men, measures and doc
trines, as now.`'Every recent election has been a
manifestation of Whig power. In what recent is
sue has the Whig ',nifty failed ! And let it be TC
' membered that their triumphs have been wan not
upon the eclat of any name, but upon the princi
ples of the Whig party.
In the face of these facts, proving as they do,
the self-sustaining energy of Whig truths, no one
ran imagine that the party leans upon any one
champion, needs any aid from imagined availabil
ity, or requires help or prop,. (non any scheme that
sacrifices a tittle of Whig principles. Whig prin
ciples are triumphant in all but the opportunity al
halal at the polls for their minuets:neut. Public
Opinion is with us, throughout the republic. Is it
imagined that, at such a period, with every pros
pects of triumph, we will sacrifice any, the most
inconsiderable, of the principles for which we have
so long and So ardently struggled! The Whig
party will triumph with its principles; hut would
prefer defeat to the !sacrifice of any truth or any
dotty. It lives upon the favor, and in the name, of
no human lasing; its itspriueiple.o are indestructible
and while the people remain true to themselves,
it can continue to triumph without borrowing its
victories from the prejudices of any faction or the
power of any individual.—.Vorrh American.
CENTRAL RA ILROAD.—The proposals for

Harrisburg on the 15th inst. Some two hundred
prolswals were tendered fir the work WI I 8 sec

unusually low rates, averaging less than *410,000

Wlf A '1"8 WRONG I—There must be a

a few mouths sines the Locoroco Press was in a
delightful humor in consequence of the extraordi
nary prices enured by our farmers fin flour and
breadstuflii, and the country was assured that it
was all owing to the Invourable influences of the
new Tariff. Indeed, the Nashville Union', Mr.
Yolk's Tennessee organ. distinctly affirmed that "no

THE POST.—The one-year volunteers, who
went to Mexico last Lune and July to fight out Mr.
Polk's war have nearly all returned—that is, such
of them have survived. Out of the li,ooll

ministration sneeringly ask, "What harm has the
war done 7" .
KICKINU IN THE TRACES.—It seems that
even Mr. Polk's Southern allies are getting tired
of his administration. The Charleston Mercury

Sudden changes from very hot to chilly
weather, are unfavorable to health. and it
is a fact universally admitted, that heat and
moisture are pi werful agents in producing
disease, and that constant dry and constant
wet weather are most favorable to its gen
eration, it does not signify what we call it,
it may be ague, it may be billions fever, it
may be yellow fever, it may be dysentery,
it may be Rheumatism, it may be bronchi
tis, it may he idiotic, it may be constipation
of the bowels, it may be intimation of the
bowels, it may be inn:motion of the sto
mach, it may be a nervous affliction, but
still it is disease, and a disease curable by
the BKANDRETH Pats, because they re
move all impurities front the body, all that
can in any manner feed the further progress
of the malady, no matter how called : thus
