In another eohnnn we give the news from Mex

' The armistice has been annulled, and been follow

Theme is one item in the intelligence which dis
covers the true object of.lbe War, and the aims of
the Administration--en item which ought to re
ceive t h e serious consideration of every citizen.
We allude to the ceuee of the failure of .negolia
tions between Mr. Trist and the Mexican Cone
nataitiottenv'. It: will be seen that Mr. Trio propo:
sod to abandon all the claims of the U. States a
phist Mexico, pay all the expense. of the W a r, I
and give a large sum of money, additional, upon
the'condition of Mexico yielding the territory de
manded brew' government. From this the Mex
ican Commissioners disunited, but offered to sur
render • prams of New Mexico and California
for an equivalent in money. The territory pro
pinie—d-f6 be given us by Mexico, however, was not
large enough to snit the purposes of our Govern
ment, and hostilities were recommenced.
Here we have it, then. The speciotis pretexts
which have hitherto been thrown beforic& nun
try by the Administration as causes for which the
War is waged, are thrown aside, and tho veil is
withdrawn from the real aims of Mr. Polk and his
partizans. Despite the protests of the President
in his message to Congress, ■nd the repeated de
nials of the Washington Union, it is a War wag
ed not tbr a redress of grievance,, not to "conquer
a peace," 2 -but a WAR OF CONQUEST, *ra
ged for the subjugation of Mexican 'territory, and
CAN REFFBLIC Else why offer to abandon
all claims against Mexico as a condition for the
surrender of,hieterritory—why refuse to close in
with her offers to cede Portion of that territory ,
if territory be not the end in view—why prolong
hostilities and subject the two countries to all the
horrors of War, if peace be the object so ardently
desired by the Administration.
But that , is not all. As if conscious that it
could no longer cover its duplicity, the Adminis.
tratiorritself- lm unveiled its real purposes, and
thus announces them through the Washington
Correspondent of the Baltimore Sun :
"WAOHI Nwrox, Oct. 4, 1847
The Administration have decided on vigorous
measures. Nothing but A COMPLETE SUB
JUGATION OF MEXICO seems to answer the
present emergency. Foraging on the enemy and
lolying of contributions were at last agreed upon.
It is to be hoped, indeed, that our brave troops
shall not in future pay for the quarters they cou
pler with their swords; nor pay two and three
prices 'for every article of food. The anxiety in
every nittn's countenance to dam is strongly de
picted, and the universal cry is "war in 'earnest 1"
bona fide war, which supports itself and seises up
on - the enemy's treasure. Unless we distress the

Poza,Situitx, and the leaders of modern "Democ

President, from the Washington Union down to
the obscurest county printo—is one which should
command the profound attention and excite the
apprehension of every independent voter through
out the land. Let it but once be acknowledged
by the people of this great republic, that the A
merican citizen has No atom totntemine the hn

Who CoM m Child the Whit—When
Mr. Polk, on the 13th of January, 1848, ordered
the army to leave Corpus Christi and to march to
the Rio Grande, and there to point their guns in
to the windows of the people of Matamoros, Ae
command hostilities against Mexico—just so much
as if ho had ordered the army to hint in the neigh
hothead of Vera Crux and erect its batteries a
round that city. The tenitory on the Rio Grande
did not belong to us. It did not belong to Texas,
and therefore was not coded by Tetra, to us. Mr.
Polk sap himself it wee in dispute. But, in het,
, there was nerdissputo about it. Congress, when it
annexed Texas, refused to consider it as indispute.
Admitting that it was, however,--certainly we
have no right to take owsoseiqn of territory to
which our title is not aseertalnOL By saying it
was in dispute; nothing' else is meant than that it
is not settled to whom it belongs. Mr. Polk, i
therefore, had no more-rightto take posenesinn of'
it than the. Mexicans hid. But his did take post
eersidon of it, and erected a battery against Materno-
roe, “within good range for dono/ishim the town,"
as General Taylor says., This was commencing
hostilities. And thicrensok. poor, .
Congress was sitting.--done without consulting
them, and, of course, without their authority. Is
there a roan in the U. States who will contend
that the President may, of his own heed, use the
army and navy to provoke a conflict with another
country, by drawing•them up in array before their
towns,—and thus bring on active war, without
obtaining the riuthority from Congress to do so I
If the President may do this, what becomes of that
great fundamental principle in our Conltitution
which gives the right to make war exclusively to
Congress I The President may, in this manner, I
involve the country in a war whenever be pleases,
lie his only to order the army or navy to provoke
a collision with another power, and, forthwith, as
to the phrase of this new political bonny,
war would exist by the act If the ether party, and
Congress would be allowed to have nothing to say
upon the 'abject, or do in the matter, but to vote
supplies ; and not only this, but that the whole
nation must be compelled to abstain from all in
quiry or discussion upon the manner in which the
war is brought about under the penalty of being
slandered with the charge of giving “aid and corn
fort" to the enemy—in other words, of committing

The New York Sun published on Mon
day evening a letter from a Spanish 'Mexi
can in the city of Mexico, to a Spanish
house in the city of New York, which
gives a more full account of the recent pro
ceedings in Mexico than has reached us
froin any other quarter. Indeed, its nar
rative comes down to the 1 ath, three days
later than was received in any of the ac
xounts brought by the James L. Day, at
New Orleans, which haveibeen published.
This letter, which moreover is Mexican
authority, states that General Scott was in
actual possissitni qftlie capital. It is said
to have come by way of Orizaba, under
cover to Mr. Dimond, at Vera Cruz. We

Our troops fought with desperate valor,
worthy the character of Mexicans. The
enemy also fought bravely—his men seem
ed like so many devils, whom it was im
possible to defeat without annihilation.—
He made a third and last charge with fresh
force and heavy guns, and our gallant
troops having exhausted their grape-shot,
were forced, very unwillingly, to retreat

hours, and were the severest, considering

But die city bravely resisted the hundreds
of flying shells. It hurled back defiauce
to the blood-thirsty Yankee, and convinced
him that his bombs could not reduce the
Mexican Capital. The enemy then ehang
ed hie plan, and determined to enter the
city, Where we prepared to meet him.
Baying barricaded the streets with sand
bags, and provided on the housetops and
at the wiudows all who could bear arms or
missiles, stones, bricks, &c., to throw on
the heads of the enemy. Before General
Scott had fairly passed die gates he found
the difficulty of his position. A perfect

gained the entrance of two streets leading
direct to the Plaza.
Finding that he could not oppose him

of water, accompanied by thunder and lightning.
The streams around us have risen to an unprece

roads in all directions. Rock Creek was so high
that on the York turnpike the 'water rose above
the piers of the bridge, and rushed across the
