rF'The communication of °A Wain" reach
ed us too late for an insertion in this week's paper.
Q7•Tbe press of important matters and adver
tising favors has crowded out a number of articles
intended for to-day's paper, and leaves no room
for editorializing.
Tun COURT.—But little Jury business was
dune at the late Court, no eases having been tried
in tho Common Pleas, in consequence of the
quashing of the renire upon which the Jurors had
been summoned, and hut one ease in the Quarter
Sessions—the Commonwealth vs. James Cham
bers, for assault and battery on John Camp, in
which the Jury found a venliet of gfility as to the
assault; the defendant was fined $5, and to pay
costs of prosecution.
It seems, that a custom had obtained in our
Courts, under which the Vanire for the Common
Pleas J urom had. uniformly been issued during the
sitting of the Court for the Fu c (veil ng iorm, and
the Jury drawn accordingly. Last week the point
was raised in the York County Common Pleas
Court as to the legality of a Ycuire issued. before
the completion of the Trial List. The Court tit
led in favor of the point, and miffed the Venire to
be quashed. 'lrhe same point being raised at the
late term of our Court, the decision was of course
the same.
re*Mr. Merin, the Agent of the Washingtou
National Monument Association for this district,
is now engagal in receiving 'attherziptions. to sua
ble the Association to carry out its patriotic par
poscA, sn,l will call on the citizens of this minty
in thecourm of a few days.' We bespeak for him a
conlial reception.
CAPT. FORRY.—We learn from the New
York Evening Express that a detachment of .100
Recruits for the lit Regiment of the U. S. Ai, an.
der command of Capt. Ww. Fount, was to soil
from Fort Hamilton on Monday last to join the
army in Mexico under Gen. Score. --Captaea.
ar is a son of Mr. Hamar Fatter, of this place,
and firvorably known to our citizens as a jaunt
man of excellent military capacity. Having re
ceived his education at West Point, immediately
after the breaking out of the war he joined the ar
my with a Lieutenant's commission, and was pre
sent at the capture of Vera Cruz and the storming
of Cerro COTtIO. His health failing soon after, he
was ordered to the tinited,§trktes to reentit, and
now returns, with a Captain's commission, to Via
join, his Regiment.
MR. CLAY ON THE WAR-Through the
enterprise of the Philadelphia Pensioned the wa
ry of the Telegraph, we are already in the pe n t
session of the proceedings of the greet meeting held
in Lexington on Saturday last, to hear thane.,
CLAT ' S views on Ple Mexican war. Irk another
column we give the Resolutions drafted and pee•
seined by Mr. CLAY himself. The
they embody are those of the Steinman, the Pa
triot, and the Christian, and will command
the attention, and, we feel assured, meet the
approKithin, of every intelligent, honest-mind
ed Whin. Mr CLAY supported his Resolution.
in a speech of about two hours and a half, which
is represented to have been a most eloquent and
masterly effort. A condensed sketch of his re
marks appears in several of the city papers, but,
in deference to the wishes of the great Statesman,
we shall decline its publication—preferring to
await an authentic and full report.
LOUISIANA.—The returns of the election in
this State are not yet complete. Sufficient, how
ever, is known to ascertain that La Sere, Locofoco,
beats his Taylor Locofoco opponent (Itcattegut)
in the lot Congressional district, and that Harman
son, Locofoco, beats Saunders, Whig, in the
Third district, by a reduced majority. Thibbo
deaux, Whig. u re-elected in the second district,
by 650 majority over Landrya, Loco, and Barkner,
Independent. The Fourth district, last represent
ed by Morse, has not been heard from. As to the
Legislature, the reports are contradictory. The
New Orleans Bulletin claims a Whig majority
on joint ballot--iither accounts leave the result in
doubt. A United States Senator is to be chosen,
to succeed Hon Henry Johnson, Whig.
MISSISSI I.—M svrn ws, the Locofococan
didate for Governor, had no regular opposition,
and is of mune elected. The Whigs have gain
ed a member of Congress by the election of Tomp
kins, in the Vicksburg district, over Roberts, Lo
eoloco. Jacob Thompson, Loco, the author of
the implied censure on Gen. Taylor for the terms
of the capitulation at Monterey, is re-elected over
Josselyn, a Taylor Loccoßico. The gallant Col.
M'Clung, Whig., who was severely wounded at
the storming, of Monterey, gairui largely on Feath
erston, Loco, but we doubt whether he will be a
ble tp overcome the heavy Locotoco majority In
the district. No returns from the fourth district.
which was last year Locofoco.
MASSACHUSETTS has done the matter "up
brown." Damns, the Whig candidate for Gov
ernor, beats CALLA Cosa INU, the renegade, Lo•
rofoeo, War candidate, over 14,000, and has a
clear majority of 2500 over all others. Cushing
is in a minority of over 25,000 votee ! The Senate
has no Loeofocoinn in it, and the House but very
little more, the Whig majority being over 100.
The vote in the State was light, not more titan
half of that in Roston being polled ; had it been
full, the Anti-Polk majority would have been at
least 40,000 !
THE NEXT HOUSE.--The Whigs, having
pined a member in Misriaippi, will have certainly

The despatches air , very voluminous, embracing.
the reports of the different officers who participa
ted in the engagements, and fully confirm all that
has heretofore been published in regard the bril
liant heroism of our gallant soldiers in the series
of desperate conflicts that preceded the capture of
the City of Mexico. Gen. Scott himself charac•
terizes them as 'unsurpassed achievements," and
comments in glowing eulogies upon the ready tr•
lacritvanl determined heroism with whichht
orders were carried into execution by the whole
army. We extract the annexed paragraphs from
the conclusion of his Despatch of August 20, de
tailing the operations of the 20th at Contreras and
Churuhusco, which constituted, in reality, five suc
cessive and distinct hard-fought battles, in all of
which our arms were signally triumphant:

On the other hand, this small force has
beaten on the seine occasions, in view of
their capital, the whole Mexican army, of
[at the beginning] thirty odd thousand,
men—posted, always, in chosen positions,
behind entrenchments, or more formidable
defences of nature and art ; killed or
wounded, of that number, more than 7,000 I
officers and men taken 3,730 prisoners,:
one-seventh officers, including 13 generals,l
of whom three had been Presidents of this
republic ; captured more than 20 colors
and standards, 75 pieces of ordnance, bo
sides 57 wall-pieces, 20,000 small arms,
an immense quantity of shots, shells, pow
der, &c., &c.
Of that enemy, once so formidable in
numbers, appointments, artillery. &c.,
twenty odd thousand have disbanded them
: selves in despair, bearing. as is known, not
more than three fragments—the largest
about 2,500—n0w wandering in different
directions, without magazines or a military
chest, and living atfree quarters upon their
own people."
Gcn. Scores last letter to the Department is
dated, Oct. and encloses official reports of the
gallant defence of Puebla, by Col. Childs, against
the assault of Santa Anna, and the of at Hut.
mantla, in which Capt. Walker was killed. The
following paragraph indicates the future operations
of Gen. Scott:
"After establishing the new posts as in
dicated in my circular letter of instruction.,
(of October,) I hope to have the means of
occupying Atlimo, some eighteen miles
from Puebla, and Toluca, the State capital
of Mexico, forty miles hence, and perhaps
Orizaba; but probably shall not .attempt
any more distant expedition without further
reinforcements. or until I shall have receiv..
ed the views of the department on the plans
submitted in my report."

may appear, we have through'the agency of the

by Mr. CLAY, and a brief outline of his speech
for all of which we am indebted to the enterprise
of the Philadelphia "Daily News."
We insert the reeolutions, which, both on an.
count of the distinguished source and the wise
and patricide sentimmts which they embody, are
oldie highest interest. In deference, however,. to
the desire expnissed by: Mr. Craw that no skete.h

Lzinsirros. (Kr.) September 13, 1847.
The announcement that Henley CLAY
would address the citizens of Lexington
ay draw Mgether an immense concourse. opened gloomily enough, and rain
fell during the___naptning_t but before the
meeting was ormutMed it had cleared suffi
ciently to be held at the, time appointed
-11 o'cleek A. M.
At that hour a vast crowd had gathered
from all quarters, and it appeared that ma
ny had come a great. distance ; the most
intense anxiety prevailed, and the accua
-coined enthusiasm which Mr. Clay invari
ably, awakens in the people was every
where manifested. The Prophet that had
foretold the war, was to answer the yearn
ing desire of tfie nation to know how the
unholy war, whose advent ho had prophe
sied, - sh6ltldbe brought to a dose ; how the
country should protect itself from the reck
lessness of• a blindly-ambitious and weak
minded President, and the will of the na
tion be made known in its most impressive
form. "All seemed tofeel that it was a deeply
important event, that would stir the Union
from one end to the other; and it was in
that spirit they awaited the advent of the
Sage It dlahkosd.
Mr. Cutt ascended the platform. accom
peeled by some of his friends, amid uni
versal and tremendous shouts, and took his
seat. He looked well, and his form was
erect and his eye as-bright se ever, -
Gen. Limas Canna cal ledthe assemblage
to order, and remarked that he hoped per
fect order and silence would be observed,
as it was probahly the last time the ilnetri.
one statesman then before them would ever
:address a poindaressembly. He had • re
solved-to do it on this occasion from a high
sense of duty to himself and country. The
momentous question now presented to the
American people of annexation,• by con
quest ot, purchase, of an immense extent
of foreign territory,' inhibited by- millions
of people of different races and colors, and
platting theta on an equal footing with the
free - tidings, of thisliepublic, permitted no
man who loved his country to remain si
lent, and HAMMY CLAY would be unworthy
of his past history if he allowed any selfish
eoneiderations to palsy his tongue. He
had rather be right than be.Pruident.
Gen. Comas concluded his remarks, by
nominating :the ;Hon. Mr. Roannow as
ehairrash • and the nomination, together
with those Of. considerable number of vice
Presidents, was confirmed by acclamation.
The meeting being this fully. organized—
Mr. CLAY rose and presented himself to
the people. His appearance was hailed
as before with tremendous shouts, to which
followed a deep and general silence, and he
then offered to read the following resolu
tions, which he had prepared :
Ist. Resolved, As the opinion of this
tneetingthat the primary cause of the present
unhappy war existing between the United
States of America and the United States of
the Republic of Mexico, was the annexa
tion of Texas to the former ; and the imme
diate occasion of hostilities between the
two Republics arose out of the order of the
President of the United States for the re
moval of the army under the command of
Gen. Taylor from its position at Corpus
Christi to a point opposite Matamoros, on
the east bank of the Rio Bravo, within the
territory claimed by both Republics, but
then under the jurisdiction of Mexico, and
inhabited by its citizens ; that the order of
the President for the removal of the army
to that point was improvident and uncon
stitutional, it being without the concurrence
of Congress, or even any consultation with
it, although it was in session ; but that
Congress having by subsequent acts recog
nized the war thus brought into existence
without its previous authority or consent,
the prosecution of it became thereby na
2d. Resolved, That it, the ab4onee of
any formal and public declaration by Con
gress of the objects for which the war
ought to he prosecuted, tile President of the
United States, as Chief Magistrate, and as of the Army and Na,
vy of the United States, is left to the gold
ance of his own judgement to prosecute
it for such purposes and objects us he may
deign the honor and interests of the natiQO
I to require
Mi. Resolved, 'flat, by the Constitution
of the United States, Congress being inves
ted with powers to declare war and grant
letters of marque and reprisal, to make
rules concerning captures on land and wa
ter, to raise and support armies, to provide
and maintain a navy, and to make rules
for the government of the land and naval
forces, has the full and comple war-ma
king power of the United States, and, so
possessing, it has a right to determine up
the motives, causes, and objects of wars,
when once commenced, or at any time du - -
ring their progress or existence.
4th. Resolved, As the further opinion of
the meeting, that it is the duty of Con
gress to declare, by some authentic act, for
what purpose and object the existing war
ought be further prosecuted ; that it is the
duty of the President in his official conduct
to conform to such a declaration of Con
gress ; and if, after such declaration, the
President should decline or mimic Sc, en
deavor, by all the means, civil, diplomatic,
and military, in his power, to execute the
announced will ofCongress, and in defiance
of its authority should continue to prose
cute the war for purposes and objects other
than those declared by that body, it would
become the right and duty of Congress to
adopt the most efficacious measure to arrest
t o
further progress of the war, taking care
tits make ample provision for the honor, the
.safety, and security of our armies in Max
ie° in every contingency; and if Mexico
should decline to conclude a treaty with us,
atipulating for, the purposea
declared by Congress, it would be the du
ly *film Government to prosecute the war
with the utmost vigilanie until they were
attained by a treaty of peace.
ads. Resolved, That we viewwith serious
alarm, and are utterly opposed to, any
purpose of annexation of Mexico to Ate
United States, in any mode, and especially
by conquest ; that we believe the two na
could not be essily...goversed by one
common authority, owing to their greet

appheatien of military force; in other
words. fit despotic-sway, exercised over
the Mexican people in the first instance,
but which there would be just cause to
apprehend might in process of time be ex
tended over the people of the United Staten.
That we deprecate, therefore, such a union
as wholly incompatible with the genius o
our Giseerntnent, and with the character of
our freirand liberal institutions ; and woanx
ionsly hope that each nation may be left
in the undisturbed possession of its own,
laws, language, cherished religion and_ter•-
ritory,. to pursue its own happiness. se
cording to what it may deem best for itself:.
8. Resolved, That. considering she se
-ries---ot-apiendid --and brilliant .i~toues
achieved by our brave armies and gallant
commanders during the war with Mexico;
imatinutled by a single reverse, the United
States,. without any danger of their honor
suffering- the slightest tarnish, can practice
the virtues of moderation and magnanimi
ty towards their diseomfitted foe; we have
no desire fiir the dismemberment of the
Repubtic of Mexico, but wish only a just
and proper fixation of the limits of Texas.
7th. Resolved, That we do positively
and emphatically disclaimand disavow any
wish or desire on our part to acquire any
foreign territory whatever fur the purpose
of propagating slavery, or of introducing
slavery from the Uttiuxl -Static into-such
foreign territory.
Bth. Resolved, That we invite our fel
low-citizens of the United States who are
anxious for the restoration of the blessings
of peace, or, if the existing war shall con
tinue to be prosecuted, are desirous that its
purposes and objects shall be defined and
drown--who are, anxious to avert present
and further perils and dangers. with which
it way be fraught, and who are also anxi
ous to produce contentment and satisfac
tion at home, and to elevate the national
character abroad, to assemble together in
the reeßeetive communities. and to express
their views, feelings, and opinions.

were adopted by acclamation.

the anxiety at the ascertain his views
"The epee& of Mr. Clay has been looked for
with intense interest by the numerous wirework
em now assembled in Washington, and what of
it has reached us to-day, has produced a most pro
found impression. The interest felt in Mr. Clay's
opinions, has, for a moment, eclipsed even that
produced by the despatches from the army. It is
the general belief that the next whig ticket will
be, nanny CLAY for President, and Governor
SswAan, of New York, for Vico President; and
a very strong one it would be, considering all cir
cumstances, and the present position of patties in
New York."
