Arrival of the Hibernia.
LATE AND IMPORTANT FROM tUROPE,
BOSTON, August 3d, 1896.
The Hibernia was telegraphed at an
early hour this morning. She brings to
the United States the Oregon Treaty rati

seal of the new Foreign Minister, Lord
This document was signed by his Lord

Excellency Mr. McLane, the American

' In the House of Lords, on the I7th of
July the Marques of Lansdowne rose and
said that It was his duty to lay before their
Lordships and that House, the Treaty
which had just concluded between her Ma
jesty and the Government of the United
States in reference to the Oregon Territo
ry. He had the satisfaction of informing
their Lordships that ratifications had that
day been exchanged. . .
A similar motion was made in the House
of Commons by Lord Palmerston, who
appeared at the Bar and stated that he

Lord John Russell declined this categor•

kicient to paint the morale of his future

attachment. Justice he would literally
carry out; but with respect to the kstab

thought it imprudent to meddle in this ear

Frotti the Army.
We have a little later mteligence from
the army. The steamship Fashion arrived
at New Orleans from Brazos on the 25th
ult. She brings verbal reports that there
was a geueral movement of the troops up
the Rio Grande.
Gen. Taylor remained at Matamoros,
sending troops forward as last as his means
of transporting them would allow:
Advices had arrived of the taking of Ca.
tnargo without firing a shot. When the
U. S. troops arrived at that place Carra
jabal was on the opposite side of the river
St, Juan, but offered no resistance.
Oen. Taylor had received advices by
scbuts that there were only about SOO
troops in Monterey.
The general impression was that there
would be no resistance of erect to the U.
S. troops this side of that city on account
of the quietude of the enemy.
The Impression is also gaining ground
in the army that negotiations for a peace
are in progress.
It was said that Paredes was afraid to
leave the capital on account of suspected
attempts at revolution in his:absence.

TILE REPORTS IN RELATION TO Mexico The
Washington Union in noticing the reports of,pro
pose's for peace from Mexico, &c., says :—Wo aro
not advised that any messenger has arrived from
Mexico, or that any overture has been made by hcr
to the government at Washington. What prospect
there may be for peace. and at what period it may
be effected, we cannot undertake, to conjecture;
though it lii certain that the President .wilt make
good his repeated declarations :J conclude a peace,
as soon di he can do eb coneistently with the rights . ,
of the United States. if we wish to obtain peace,
and to secure the objects of the war, we must talk
less and do . more. We most prosecute the war
with all ti e r energies. We must see our smaller .
vesselli, which draw less water, arriving on the coast
of Mexico, to which they are destined in the gulf,
to blockade the smaller ports, to seize their small
towns, shd cut off every artery of their commerce.
Tho Mei l icans must see their ports in California
seized arid occupied by our squadron and our troops.
We must strike other blows at the Mexican strong
holds, and their troops, if they will oncc more re
main in the field lo measure weapons with us.—
When Santa Fe, and Coahuila, and Monterey aro
taken, or about to be taken, by our various detach
ments, and Mexico can see nothing but commercial
distraint in her sea-coast—When she zees California
about to bo lost to her, and her strongest places in
Upper Mexico about to bo occdpied by our arms,
she may begin to calculate the costs or the War, and
to manifest a more decided disposition to make
peace with us by a direct negotiation. But, we re
peat, the beat way to secure a peace isnot by talking
too much of its attainment. We mist advance
into her country, satisfy her people by our kind
treatment that we do not go among them to plun
der their property, to abuse their religion, or to vici
late their liberties; but that so long as her govern
ment refuses us justice, war--energetic,
war—is to be the redline of her people. It is in
this way only that we are to obtain a Betided and
GEN. SCOTT.--SOMO of the Canada papera are
copying with much gusto, the attacks of some of
our Locofoco papers upon Gen. Suitt. The De•
troll Advertiser says:
..These Britons bitterly remember Lundy's Lone;
Chippewa and Fort Brie, and they are delighted
to find Americans abusing and blackguarding the
heroes who there struck down tho British flog."
This may be natural enough for some of the baser
sort of Britains and renegades in Canada, though
it will be despised by tho more gallant spirits even
there; but what shall we say of men on American
soil, claiming to be Americans, within sight of some
of the most renowned fields of American valor, who
like a pack of hounds or sneaking, cowardly wolves,
attempt to hunt dawn a man whose whole life has
been consecrated to the service of his country, and
whose achievements both in war and peace, illu
mine many of the brightest pages in our nation's
history. Tho gallant soldier has been caught in
the toils of mousing wily politicians, but they may
push the matter too far. The people aro generous
as well as just.—Briffalo Corn.
Every man of sense in our ranks must see the
selfish and sordid considerations that aro now mo
ving the Whig leaders. They invite us to join
them to show our attachment to the Tariff. Have
tee riot shown it already . 1
Who doubts but that the Democracy have shown
thelr attachment to the Protective policy already?
They have shown a love for it quite as strong as
that usually exhibited by a bear, when in possession
of its victith—hugged it until the vital spark has
GEn. Scorr.—Gen. Scott has been
quite indisposed fora tew days; but has re
covered sufficiently to be abotit. The
Washington correSpoittlent of the 11. Y.
Tribune says, ..1 said some tittle ago that
the predictions and calculations he made
about the Mexican war would all turn out
tilts. I atn now certain that this will be
the case; though the General was ridiculed
by a lot of Military gr'eenliorhs, tor calcu
lations on so late an invasion of Medico,
times and facts will prove the foresight
and the wisdom of this brave and distin
guished soldier. The panders and Syco
phants or power have laughed, as they
supposed over his grave. He still Bes
in the hearts of his countrymen.
FROM rise CAMP.—We understand
says the Washington Union, that the thir
teen small steamers have ascended the Rio
Grande, and arrived at Matamoros, for the
ttansportotion of Gen. Taylor's troops;
and that four more are expected—two
from Charleston and two from Philadel.
phia. A letter from Mr. Whiting to the
Quartermaster General; in this city, has
just been teemed from Matamoros, da
ted July 17th, which says s—'One of the
boats which went up to Camargo, returned
this day. She reached there without much
difficulty—not more than is encountered
below this. The troops on board of her
took quiet possession."
THUNDER STonst.—There was a terrific
thunder storm at Chambersburg on Wed-
nesday last, during which, William Wad
dles, Esq, of Mercersburg was killed.—
Several buildings were struck by lightning,
and a number of persons were struck
down and seriously injured.

agcd 21 years, 6 months and 25 days.
The deceased was the only son of his mother;
and she a widow." Being in delicate health ft om
early childhood, and left without tho care and pro
tection of a father, he Bras nurtured by a fond mother
like a tender plant; but that insidious destroyer,'
Consumption, preyed upon him, painting the rain
bow hues of promise and hope before him, until ho
had marked him for his own. In his feebleness,
however, the sufferer awakened to the reality of his
situation, and hurled his thoughts from the world
and its vanities, and fixed his affections upon higher
objects; and at length parted in pence, welcoming
Death with a serenity and joy, in tho comfortable
hope of the resurrection to eternal life, and the en
joyment of the blessed promises of the Gospel, in
the world beyond the grave. To his bereaved
parent and relatives and friends It is consoling to
feel that their loss is Isis gain.
