"I go ashore nt the Narrows, below
New York, and proceed, without enter

"It is painful to reflect that he returns

small a force, and such signal success.

ANOTHER PRESIDENTIAL WAR THREAT
ENED.—The President has communi
cated to the Senate, in answer to a call
of that body, copies of certain despatch
es from the Navy Department to our
Naval Officers. The National Intelli
geneer says--The following extract
from one letter addressed to Commo
dore Perry since the Senate has had the
Yucatan question under debate, will show
what designs are not only meditated, but
are even about being carried into execu
tion, with the obvious intent, without
the consent of Congress, to involve this
country in a fresh war, on the ground
of a supposed continental duty or ne
cessity on the part of the Executive:
While the United States are enga
ged in a war with Mexico, the actual
presence, without our consent, of the
armed force of a neutral power within
the territory of our enemy, co-operating
with any portion of the Mexican people
in military operations, [even assisting
the Yucatanese to resist the Indians, we ,
suppose,] cannot be permitted. Such a !
state of things, it is hoped will not oc-;
cur. If you should have reason to be- 1
lieve that it will, you will communicate
it without further delay, that THE

THE VETO POWER
The Whig idea of the Veto Power,
and of the proper time to exercise it, has
always differed from the theory,t hat what
calls itself 'democracy' attached to that
power. Whigs would not expect . even
their President to veto the mere legisla-
live measures of a democratic Congress,
—although they might not like them.
The Representatives of the People are
elected to exercise their discretion as to '
internal improvements, a tnritr, a corm

Harrison was taken into custody and
his effects were searched. He was found
to be in possession of eleven Chester
County Bank Bills—each of the denom
ination of $lOO, and it was known that
lie had got rid of several others. These
evidences of guilt wore considered so
strong, that Harrison was taken in cus
tody, to await a trial, having narrowly
escaped without lynching, in that distant
quarter where summary justice is me
ted out under martial law. Such was
his imminent peril that, to clear him
self from punishment, he voluntarily
made a confession which, being corrob
orated by other facts, sul s'antiated his
allegations of innocence of the robbery,
but involves him in another high misde
meanor ; and at the same time clears up
a very mysterious tradgedy which (it
was supposed) had been enacted in this
vicinity, and which at the time created
no little excitement.
It will be remembered that some time
last fall, a drover named Hitchcock, was
suddenly missing from Philadelghia.
He went to that city from Chatham, in
Chester County ; having sold, at the lat
ter place, a drove of cattle, to Mr. Geo.
Lefevre, and obtained ie money. It
appears that the money (amounting to
1700 or $1800) was borrowed by Mr. L.
from the Bank of Chester County, and
was paid principally in $lOO notes on
that Bank. Well, Hitchcock disappear
ed—mysteriously—and never was heard
'of afterwards. His wife, who resided
in Ohio, came on in search of her hus
band, in deep distress ; but obtained no
tidings. He was supposed to be dead.
A body was found in the Deleware, of a
person who had been drowned ; but it
was not the body of her husband. She
returned to her home, unsatisfied and
disconsolate. Her husband had been
robbed—he was surely murdered!
A young man of high respectability,
from Delaware county, had been seen in
company with Hitchcock at the theatre
or the Baltimore cars. Ho was the last
person seen with him. He was on his
way South—to Charleston or some other
point. Suspicion fell upon this young
man, that he had made way with the
drover, for the sake of his money. After
the lapse of a month, he returned to
Philadelphia. Hearing himself charged
with the abduction or murder of Hitch
cock, he delivered himself up to the po
lice of that city--he established his in
nocence, and was acquitted. Here the

THE REVOLUTION IN HAYTI
The New Orleans Picayune of the 12th
conveys intelligence that n most sanguin
ary war has again broken out in Hayti.
The black population have determined
to have the constitution of I 8 I 6 restored,
which is opposed by the mulattoes. The
blacks are the most numerous, and are
joined by the army.
The Courier contains the following
extract from a letter to a commercial
Hayti has again been the scone of
bloodshed and murders. We learn that
the brigantine Queen Victoria, (of Trin
idad) Captain Tucker, from Port au
Prince, bound to Hamburg, with a car
go of coffee, &c., put into Morant Bay
on Thursday last 'to purchase stores, as
none could be procured at Port au Prince
in consequence of the state of affairs at
that place ; and that Captain Tucker re
ports that lie has brought despatches
from the British Consul there to Com.
Bennet, on this station,. requesting that
a vessel of war should be immediately
sent to Port an Prince, where a serious
disturbance had taken place—a large
number (some say upwards of a hundred)
of the colored population having been
masacred by their black brethren. The
cause of this ciatbreak has not been ful
ly mentioned, but it is said that the
lives of the people of color were daily
sacrificed in large numbers. This de
termination on the part of the blacks to
exterminate the browns had been brew

by this time been sacrificed to a merci

The utmost harmony and good feel
