The undersigned, Minister of Foreign Relations,

What can the undersigned add to what has al

offirnce offered Mexico try the United States, usurp
ing a portion of Mexican territory, and violating
the terms of treaties of friendship which the Re
public of Mexico has observed on her part as long

more then to lament that two nations free, and re

fraternal union, founded upon mutual interests end
a common and honneable loyalty, should have cut
short their friendly relations, and by an act as of
fensive to Mexico as it is derogatory to the honor
of the American Union.
The undersigned renews to his Excellency Mr.
Shannon, the protest already directed against An

the United States. On the 2Sth ult., the Govern—

Later papers from New Orleans, containing Vora

include a letter from Mr. Shannon, and another
from' he Mexican Minister. Mr. Shannon made
a hew 'attempt to revive amicable negotiations; but
without the slightest success. Mexico was evident

Picayune, declared war against the United States
but the official paper, El Diario del Column, of
the 3d ult. announces that it is in possession of cer

a warlike character, which it is constrained to with

"►ix?AR or NO War ?
The news:leper press is now teeming with Intel
which certainly indicatea a probability of
that " laat resort of nations"--an appeal to arms
--being about to take place. We have given place
in our columns to-day to a considerable amount of
these rumors of wars.
Mexico appears resolved to resist the annexation
of Texas to the United States, and war with that
power would seem to be inevitable. Resistance on
het part by all the means in her power, if only
employed upon Texas, must lead to that event.—
The Washington Globe. probably speaking the
opinions of the administration, whose organ it pro
fesses to be, expresses its "solemn conviction that
sue shall soon again be called to take up arms
against our former and only adversary," mean
mg Great Britain. The following paragraph is from
a Isle number of that paper. in which it will he seen
• thst Mr. Polk is urged to adhere to the letter and
spirit of hie Inaugural Address:
Yet have we been forced, at titnes. and that ton
under the mildest of our rulers, from this,thesettled ,
policy of our government, and it is our solemn con
viction that we shall soon again he called upon to
take up urine against our former and only adversa
ry. It is perfectly manifest that they regard this as
a favorable moment to renew the system of egres
sion upon us which has resulted in war heretofore ;
which, to submit to, is only to invite new wrongs
—wrongs premeditated, not for the advantage which
accrues to them, but arranged and nettled upon
merely as the means of bringing on the conflict of
arms, or the entire abandonment of our rights as a
nation. The only mode to avoid able in the firm
! adherence by the President to tie letter and spirit
of his inaugural address. He will be sustained by
the nation in that; for notwithstanding the English
Ministers choose to level their lances at Mr. Polk,
it is not to be forgotten that the previous action of
the House of Representetives had, by an immense
1 , majority, given their sanction to his lane... By
the truckling ?abandonment of our rights pursued by
Mr. Webster in the Aslibiaton treaty, we lost the
subject of controversy, forfeited the respect of the
world and of ourselvea, and invited new and Un
founded pretensions from our adversary.'
With such solemn convictions," one might
suppose that the administration would Ire actively
engaged in preparing for an issue of such magni
tude, which it seems to he resolved to force the na
tion into, probably for the purpose of acquiring fame
for those whose names would otherwise quietly
sleep in oblivion. But nothing of the kind is be
ing dune. At the head of affairs, unfortunately, we
have those who ore inefficient at any time, and ut
terly unfitted for an emergency.
On the other hand, the National Intelligencer is
as calm as a summer's morning, in relation to the
war rumors. it says there is no talk at Washing
ton of an extra session of Congress, and adds, with
reference to some of the rumors of the day: There
is no extraordinary "activity" in the department
of State, that we have heard of; the Secretary, we
believe, eats, drinks, smokes his cigar, and sleeps as
usual. We do not hear of any particular despatch
' es "handed in by Mr. Pakenham," nor of course
of any " anx lety" felt about them, or any reply"
to them that is ' , looked for with considerable inter
est." 'fire intimations, from whatever source, are
entitled to fume of the consequence which appi.ars
to be given to them.
Texas and Arnexaticn.
The New Orleans papers declare their unquali
fied belief in the determination of the Texian
ernrnent to delay action on the annexing resoltitiOns
to the last possible moment. They say that Mr.
SMITH, the Texian Secretary of State, is now . 11
his way to Boston, where he will take the steamer
of the lot proximo for England. The Bullefin
says that, " knowing the place of his destinathin, it
is not difficult to guess the object of his mission,or
the inducements that prompted so sudden arid ur-
gent a movement."
The Picayune contains a leader entitled "Eu•
rope versus Liberty," which commences thus i
“The Republic of Texas presents at this me;
meat the extraordinary spectacle of a battlb field,
upon which will be decided the problem of Ameri
can or European sovereignty i❑ directing the desti
nies of that country. In this controversy, so mo
mentous in its immediate issue, and yet more oh in
its future consequences, an American President has
leagued with the enemies of free government, and
the demands of a whole people reach the Executive
ear already preoccupied with the flattery of foreign
emissaries. From the Sabine to the Rio Grande,
the citizens are calling upon the Government to
finish the goad work, whilst the Government is
junketting with the English and French embassies.
The Texian cabinet, after accommodating EurpPe
nn dignitaries, is dispersed, and the Minister ,'f the
United States finds the capital deserted upon his ar
rival there with important despatches, and after
wards meets cant respect from such of the author
ities as ventured to return to Washington (Tease)
during the absence of Captain Elliott and Mr.
The editor remarks further, that " the devefelp
runts of the last few weeks imply the absoltife
sway of Capt. Elliott and his French attache. over
the councils of the Tex inn Executive. To those
the doors of the cabinet and public offices are
thrown wide open, whilst the people are kept pro:
foundly ignorant of the intentions of their own'
Government. Concessions and promises are said,
upon authority which challenges belief, to have
been made to the English Minister, which indefi
nitely postpone the fate of Texas."
'Phis is followed by an earnest appeal to the peo
ple of Texas, to take the matter in their own hands,
and to act for themselves, so as to coerce the Gov
ernment to respond to their wishes.
From dim indications, it would seem that the work
of annexation is as yet any thing but consummated.

SCOAR COATED PILLS.—Dr. O. Benjamin
ti'mq I, s Sum Coated Indian Vegetabfe Pills,' ass
now the favorite medicine of . the country. Many
new remedies have been dfaceirered and puffed into
brief notoriety, but we have no knowledge of
medicine combining so much that is efficacious and
pleasant as these Pills. The idea of taking Pills
heretofore has been nauseating in the highest degree.
Much credit is due Dr. Smith for bringing out thin
valuable medicine. We know of more then twen
ty cures of diseases considered by other doctors on
dangerous; one ease of confirmed Dyspepsia in
particular, which calm under our own immediate
We have tried them ourselves and in our family,
for headache, Colds find pains in the side and breast,
and we can say, we never saw their equal, both for
pleasantness end efficacy.
One word in referehre to those wholesale murder
ers, who, not having honesty enough to . 4 ,vork foran
independent livelibood,ebunterfeit or imitate such
valuable remedies as Dr. Smith's Pills. 'Sugar
Coated' Pills originated with Dr. 0. Benj. Smith
who applied for a Patent long before,ao bOrly else
ever beard of them, therefore it will be seen that all
other Pills claiming tb be Sugar Coated' are spu
i rinse and dangerous, and we advise those who buy
to examine carefully the box for themselves, and sea
i that Dr. Smith's name is on it.

1:0`. The letter following. Was addreiwed to art
agent of Dr. flrandret!V, at Middletown, Ct.
About a year and alien' ago, I was very severely .
afflicted with Fever and Agin, and after trying eve
rything that was recoMthended to me by the Ficul;
ty. I found I received no benefit by any thing I
tried. Having heard Hrandreth's fills would cure
every thing, I purchn'eed three double boxes in N.
York, and two! small ones of you. I first began,
with two at n dose, and finished with twenty ; and'
after using theta about . a fortnight, I was entirely re
stored to health, arid hove never had a return.—
, Therefore, fully believing they will purify the blood
and remove all vitiated humors from the syatem; f'
cheerfully recomniond them to the pat& to a saft
and efficient core for the Fever and Ague.
I am, gentlemen, yours reepeettully . , •
