A New War with Mexico.
It will be seen that filo news this morn
ing doubly confirms the account of Gover
nor Lane's warlike, or war-looking, pro
ceedings in 'New Mexico. First, we have
intelligence direct from the Paso del Nor
te, embracing the proclamation of the Gov
ernor, which has inflamed the ire of the
Mexicans on the spot, and induced them
to resort to military preparations; and,.
next, we have advices from the city of
3lixico, showing the exeitentent produced
there, and the determination Of the nation
al authorities to attempt something better,
or worse, in the way t f resistance, than the
protest against Governor Lane's measures,
formally made to, or through, the Ameri
can Minister, Judge Conkling. If Mexi
can spirit were equal to Mexican suscepti
bility, we should have no difficulty in au
guring evil from this new turn of events;
and, indeed, the affair is a very disagreea
ble, and may perhaps prove a very serious
Mecilla, the town which gives name to
the territory in dispute between New Mexi
co and Chihuahua—or between Governor
Lane of the one ane Governor Trias of the
other— is a new settlement on the Rio
Grande—so new, that it is not marked on
the ordinary snaps. It is about thirty
eight or forty miles above the Paso, and
at no great distance below the famous des
ert plain known as the Jornado del Muer
to. It is—or was—rather more an Amer
ican than a Mexican settlement, always
being supposed to be within the American
line, until the observations, or blunders,
of the Commissioners appointed to lay
down the boundary according to the trea
ty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, appeared to
throw it on the Mexican side; upon which
the Mexicans took—and were allowed to
take—possession; all, however, we believe,
in a peaceable way. Our claim was a good
one— better, perhaps, than that of the
Mexicans; but abandonment on our part is
an argument in their favor, which should
have suggested a moderate course to Gov
ernor Lane, even had this not been dicta
ted by other eiriumstances. He ack
nowledges in his proclamation that he acts
upon his own responsibility, "without or
ders from the Cabinet at AVashington"--a
fact which renders his movements the
wore surprising; and front a letter; dated
at l'eso del Norte, which we find in the
Picauyne of Wednesday evening, it would
seem that Col. Summer, to whom he appli
ed for military and in occupying the dis
puted territory, had refused it, doubting
the right and policy of the seizure alto
gether. It is difficult to understand his
motives; but, it is clear enough, he thinks
he will be sustained by the Government at
home, and that his act will carry out the
wishes of Congress. To wrest the terri
tory from the Mexicans, he must call out
the naillitia, or issenibie tt force of volun
teers; iu which case the Mexicans must
fight or run, and if they do fight—and run
afterwards, as they are very likely to do
-why then, we suppose, we shall have
another war existing "by the act of Maxi-
There is one particular, not without in
terest, which may be mentioned in this
Connection. Mecilla is bui a few miles
distant from the well known field of the
Brazito, where Doniphan obtained his first
victory, fur hundred and fifty of his men
flogging twelve hundred Mexicans—heroes
of Chihuahua, with the black flag—in
twenty minutes. This was a mere prelude
to the battle of the Sacramento, fought—
or run--by the same heroes, only in vastly
greater numbers. Governor Trias defends
the disputed territory with these valiant
gentry. We may guess what the result
will be, should Governor Lane march
against them with a force of American vol
unteers, and should the first battle be
fought in sight of the Brazito.—JV . .qnter

They are pleasant to the taste, and can he taken
