Mexico, was in the staff rd Gen. Scott during
llio battle; Midshipman Rodders in that id Gen
IM low; Mnj Durland made his escape, and was
also in the battle.
The Picayune recalls its opinion that the
City was not at the mercy of Gen. Scott, and
rays it was entirely optional with him whether
to match in and take nosuoaaion nr nor .
lien. Si-ott, in his note to thfl Mexican Presi
dent, tendering an armistice, rails the war be
tween the two Republics an "unnatural war,"
and fays that too much blood' ha been already
fchrd in it. The Mexican Secretary of War, re
plying Gen. Room's note, refer to the ex
pressions, and nays: '
"It is certainty lamentable, that in ronterpience
of the discard at the riphts of the Mexican Re
public, (be sledding of blood ha become inevi
Uhlu between the first republics of the Ameri
can continent; and your F.scellency with great
propriety muliie this war a nnnatural, a wall

Board, or one that always had one member of
the opposite party in it, svouM strove a most
whnletome reform, while it could not effect the
interest of the party in power. This opinion,
we know; is entertained by Srteny c,f our best
and most dittinpuitbed democrats, at it would
make the otfiqer of our public wot I honest and
careful in their duties, which in of vat import
ance to Our tax-payer. .But the idea of impro
ving the Board by making it whig in politics, i
piepnsteront ' We have had a specimen of.it un
der the admiuixtrstinn of Thaddeite Stevens, snd
tout we shall never have any more of it. If
the board must be constituted wholly of one par
ty, we would of coarse prefer a democratic one ;
but what we honestly think would be best for
the interests of the people ss well as for Ike par
ty in power, would be a mixed boaid of two de
mocrats and one whig. This, while it wuitld
place the power in the hands of the democrats,
or the majority, when fairly exercised a effec
tually a if all three were democrats, would
at the tame time be acting fairly, by giving the
minority a representative of their intereats with
out the power of doing any harm. We thou Id
like to see a law enacted that would bring about
auch an arrangement something aimilar to our
Iswelectinr Judge and Inspectors of elections.
These are onr candid opinions, and we are not a
frsid to express them, and we believe them to be
the sentiment of a large majority of the reflect

For thesn reason we shall support Morris
