Without any formal proceeding on the subject
our passengers have endeavored to ascertain the

Vriends of the Taritl—he Warned
The Washington Union of Thursday
week has the following significant para.
graph t ,
l'he National intelligencer seems at
a sore loss to know whether it will be in
the power of the Executive to command'
(that Nis the •courtenas phrase the Nation
al Intelligencer uses) majorities to en•
able it to break up the proiettiVe system.'
Of course it is impossible for any one to
know, espeCially as there are fifty seven
Representatives yet to be elected. But
it is highly frebable that there will be ma
jorities in both !louses sufficient to effect
a decided reform of the revenue system."
To which the intellinencer responds in
. , .
words of warning, as follows
FOREWARNED, FOIIEARMED I—Take no.
tice, all ye Whoin it may in anywise con
cern, that the purpose of breaking down
the Tariff at the coming session of Con
gress is thus distinctly acknowledged by
the government piper, if a majority Can
he secured in each house for the purpose!
Mechanics, Farmers, Merchants—all . ye
who have an interest in the continuance
of the present national prosperity and
progress—learn from this disclosure that,
unless you come forward as one man to
prevent it, the the axe will be laid to the
root of that national prosperity by those
whom you have set to watch over it
Mexico and Wai:
The news from Mexico, (via Alabama,)
is that war hid not been declared at the
latest dates.—That is good news, and we
hope it will continue t o be true news. But
the same account itates, that Mexico has
sent a large body of troops towards Texas.
Now as the United States have ordered
most of their disposal forces to the west
ern ardeli of Texas, (sending even from
Fort Adams, in Rhode Island,) it seems
to be difficult to suppose that a collision
can be avoided.—ThiS, it might be sup•
posed, would be the case, when our coun
try sent troops thither. The first report
of war begun, will probably teach us
across Texas. If our country expects
war, she is right in preparing for it. The
continuance of the contest will depend
upon the force of the first blow. Peace
should be the great object of our rulers—
to maintain the peace we have, Or to re
store it, if their misconduct should have
disturbed S. Gazette.

The Houston telegraph, after men
tioning the improvement and rapidly in
creasing trade of Corpus Christi, states
that "the marauding party under the com
mand of Leal, has not been seen for a Long
time; and it is supposed that he has been
driven into some one of the Mexican gar
risons by the traders, or that he has been
recalled by order of Arista. It is laid
that Arista has expressly forbid his subal
terns molesting the Texas frontiers. He
is now at Montery, and has only about a
thousand troops under his immediate
command. fte has expressed much
satisfaction with the present state of Mee
ico; but it is belived that he is not dis
posed to take any active measures against
it at present. The Presidential election
being near at hand, he probably expects
by his influence, to secure the election of
his favorite candidate, and trust to ham
to remedy the evils of which he now coins
plains. I'he people in the valley of the
Rio Grande, are generally indifferent
whether Texas be annexed lo the United
States, or remains independent. Many
of the citizens of Matamoras are decided
ly ih favor of annexation, and it is stated
that some of the officers in command have
declared that they would prefer to see
Texas in the possession of the United
States. The troops along the whole line
of the Rio Grande are in a Very destitute
condition. The government is so poor
that it can scarcely furnish theni with
provisions necessary for their subsistence,
and little or no clothing has been furnish
ed to theM far Months."
The Catitanche Indians continue to be
friendly. The Telegraph states that three
of the Chiefs visited Bexar about the Oth
ult., and Stated that their people were de
sirous of renewing the treaty of peace.
The sloop Olive Branch arrived at Gal

Christi. She reported the Revenue
Cutter Woodbury to be at Decrow's Point
on the 6th, awaiting the arrival of Major
Denelson, who was hourly eepected,
when she was to sail for New Orleans.
The Olive Branch also reported the Uni
ted States troops on St. Joseph's Island,
and that the steamer Moninouth lied left
for New Orleans on the 4th. The steam
er Dayton left Galveston on the 6th, for
Corpus Christi, under charter to convey
the troops to the main land. The U. S.
ship St. Mary's arrived at GalveSton on
the 7th. The Hope Howes was up to

New Orleans dates to tho 12th, furdish nothing
later from Mexico. A letter from Pensacola, how
ever, under date of the 11th, is published in the
Mobile Herald. which states that a French brig had
just arrived from Vera Cruz, with dates to the 27th
ult.—No war had been declared at that time; but
the A moricans were all leaving. It is also stated
that war would not be declared at present, although
ultimately it would be determined upon. Mexico,
it is added., was waiting for an official notification
of the consummation of Annexation. This of
course cannot reach her for some time. Mean
the Government will look about them, and
fulminate their paper declarations. This is the
latest intelligence by way of Mobile. We must
remember, however, that we yesterday gave ad
'vices of the same dates from Vero Cruz, together
with an official paper addressed by the Minister of
Foreign Affairs, to the Chambs'r of Deputies, re
comMentling, with the unanimous consent of the
Council,"the painful extremity of a war with the
United States. ' The Secretary states that the
Government is preparing the most efficient meas
ures for recovering Texas, and concludes by urg
ing the adoption of an article, "declaring war, the
Moment Government should know that Texas had
annexed itself to the American Union, or that
troops from the Union had invaded it." In brief,
then, at our last accounts on the 27th of July, the
matter was still undecided; but the above recom
mendation was before thu Chamber of Deputies;
also a proposition to empower the Government to
borrow $15,000,000, either at home or abroad.—

How many sudden breaches does death make in
our families, and how many fond parental hopes
does he bloat. It was but yesterday that we passed
along and beheld the subject of this notice sporting
in the buoyancy of childhood, innocence and
health. A few short hours and we returned to find
the seal of the destroyer upon her brow and his
fatal arrow quivering in her heart. So fades the
ldvely flower, even when its expanding petals are
drinking in the refreshing dew, by the sudden and
untimely frost—so sinks the setting sunlight with
its gorgeous pencillings, and in the very midst of
our admiration leaves us in darkness. Yet in the
consolations of that religion which they profeaso,
may they who have been thus suddenly bereaved,
by this untimely stroke, find their comfort and
hope. Far as the flowers come again after the
frosts, to bloom in their beauty, and the sunlight
returns after the gleom of the night to fling its
gladdening beams over earth—so shall she, who
"is not dead but sleepeth," again awake from her
peaceful slumber in the Saviour's imagelnd bloom
in the unfadirig beauty of eternal youth.
