As wo havo InJ occasion, in reference to tlio struggle now going on in Texas, to as sume ground very different from that taken by most of our friends in other parts of tho country and by mmy presses in Now England, with which v.j generally agree on topics of national interest wo (loom it a duty to ouraolvos ant! tli-m, to express more fully than wo have hitherto doiu, our opinions on the precise relations of the par ties to this great contest. Topic of tho gravest import are. involved in this question; and in its final adjustment wo shall proba bly find the source of more excitement and agitation than have over before disturbed the country. It ia hardly necessary for us, we presume, to disclaim, utterly, any sympathy with tho chieftain who now wears the iron crown of Mexico. As far as his rise was ono of vio lent usurpation, and as far as his dominion is ono of military rigor and civil cruelty, wo entertain towards him a detestation as deep, as sincere, and as uncompromising as can bo cherished by any other lover of human rights and popular liberty. The ties of a common origin and a common Ian guage bind us to the people of Texas. To the extent in which they are an oppressed people, struggling against a powerful op. pressor, thev have a claim upon our sym pathies. Uut in estimating our national relations in taking a broad view of our position with respect to Texas and Mexico wo must look at tho origin of thercvolu tion, and the results to bo accomplished by tbo ultiinato success of tho Toxans. And hero we cannot conceal or palliate the fact that the proposed end of the revo lution is the ru:-nsTAiir,isn.MENT of slave nr in Texas, and its ultimate union with this country in tho relation ofa slave iiolu i.no State. And to (his cxtont wo will not deny that our feelings nnd principles are with the government of Mexico: and wo should much prefer that Texas should occupy her present position ns tho province of ix Spanish empire, than that sho should bo annexed to an Anglo Saxon republic, to perpetuate n 6courgo and a curso upon this Garden of the World. Hero is the whole matter in controversy; nnd while wo can readily porceivo why euch an issue should caii30 the very general excitement for Texas, that prevails in tho Southern States, wo arc surprised that it can be contemplated otherwise than with tho most serious solicitude by citizens of tho non Elaveholding Slates. On this point wo would not be misundcr. stood. Our friends are awaro of tho opin ions wo have uniformly expressed with ref erence to this interesting and important subject of slavery. They know that durni" tho agitations of tho Inst summer, toucliin" the question or abolition wo wero the rinsT itiess in New England to direct pub lie attention to the vast interests it involved nnd to call for an expression of public sen timent in relation to it. No journal in tho country-north or south of the Potomac has labored more earnestly, moro zealously with a moro sincere or ardent endeavor to maintain tbo constitutional lmbi. r n. Siuth, or to exhibit tho disastrous consc quonccs of any the least interferences with her domestic relations. Our course has been uniform and decided on this subject and oven tho Southern presses have borno frequent and gratifying testimony to the temper in which wo havo pursued it. But tho affairs of Texas introduco an en' tiroly now clement into this matter; they raiso on entirely new question; nnd wlnlo wo still maintain that tho people of the North havo no right nono whatever, to interfere with the existing institutions of tho Southern fctates,-thcy have a deep moral interest in tho general question of slavery, and a high civil duty incumbent on llicm with reference to Ihcprcciso question now involved in tho contest of Texas with Mexica. Supposo that tho people of tho English West India possessions, liko ourselves of Anglo-Saxon doscent nnd speaking a com- inon language had taken unibrogo at Iho laws of the parent govotnmont on tho nbo-1 Titian ol slavery in thoso islands ano nau risen in a body against their execution ; Mipposo mat ihey nau sent an agent to England to remonstrate Hint iio nau uocu detected in a scheme (or ncgociating n re bellion, ami imprisoned; that ho had been afterward) released, nnd had returned to tho West Indies to consummato his inter cepted plans; nnd that tho English Govern ment had sent out a Ileal and nrmy to crush tho Insurrection, and enforce its laws s sup pose this, nnd you havo a prociso parnljol to tho revolution in Texas, btripped uf its unessential and incidental circumstances. Who could pretend in this Mate of things, that tho people of tho West Indies had such a claim upon our sympathies ns to authorjzs us in lilting out cruisers, and raising companies, on individual account, to wago war against a neutral power? Who can pretend that a Senator of the United States would ba warranted in calling on tho citi zons of tho Atlantic frontier, "to ronso and pour forth torrents of volunteers, till the last vestige of English dominion should bo swept away from tho West Indies ?" And yet wo havo seen such thing-;, and heard s.uch language, in regard to Texas and Mexico and it has been not only uu rebuked hut sustained and encouraged. If tho Toxans nchicvo their independence thorc is a largo pirly in the United Stales, ready lo rccoivo them into tho Union. It is stated by tho presses known to bo in the confidence of President Jackson that ho is desirous of making such an acquisition of territory; and tho people of this country aril called upon by tlioir love oj liberty, to aid in crushing an imperial tyranny, and substitute in its place, nn independent, rc publican government, with aH tho privi legos and blessings of republican slavery Fur our own part wc cannot appreciate thu forco of such appeals. Wu do not rcognizo tho validity ofsuch claims. As far as for eign interference is concerned, Mexico and Texas stand upon equal ground. We cm not perceive that tho causo of Mexico is any less the cause of liberty than is that of Texas. Wo cannot be convinced that tuo emigrants from this republic havo any more right to introduco slavery into a province ot Mexico than the government ot Mexico have to struggle against its introduction Under these circumstances, wo have adopt- ed strong lanj-uago on tho question. Our people are bound, at least lo obsorvo a strict neutrality. If the Texans can carry their point and succeed in the introduction of slavery ; let it not bo with our aid or our countenance. If tho Mexicans quell tho revolution, maintain their ascendency, and exclude domcsticslavery from their territo ry, we do not perceive in what manner tho rights of humanity, or the claims of popular Irccuom, arc violated or inlnnged. IMPORTANT FROM TEXAS. Laplurc ul bantu Anna s Army and he iiimsell taken prisoner. Subjoined will bo found the accounts, as they have reached us, of the complete ovcr- mroio oj ine Mexican Jinny, by uie Jorccs of Gen. Houston! Perhaps thero is no victory in tho annals of war, so complete ns the ono hero related. Now Orleans papers of Iho 3d inst. con tain intelligence of tho capturoof Santa Anna and his army. Tho circumstances as related arc, that tho Mexican army had from sumo causo or other been separated into two bodies divided by tho river Uraso that the sudden rise prevented the two bodies from effecting a junction that Houston marched against tho larger body amounting to 1100 or 1200 men that the latter retreated, and in their retreat tot tiro to lh? town of Ilarrisburgh. Houston succeeded in overtaking them about seven miles from that tuwn, and made a sudden and vigorous attack on them, nnd alter somo sovcro fighting, tho Mexicans wore totally defeated. The Uattlo took place on tho 21st April Houston had only COO men, Santa Anna had 1 100, half of whom are killed, tho rest with Santa Anna himself, his brother and second in command, General Cos, and their oflicers wero taken prisoners, whilst tho Texans had but C killed and 20 wounded. Tho Now Orleans lleo cf tho 3d instant says; We havo hoard it stated, as if on good authority, that General Houston held a council of war on the fate of his prisoners, and that Santa Anna nnd all his officers had boon shot. It was also stated that General Gaines had written n private letter confir matory of this account. There can, how ever, be no doubt that Houston has con quered, and that tho Moxican army is pros tratcd. If it bo truS that tho Texan3 were but GOO strong, and that they lost so few men. when tho enemy's numbers wero so much superior, and their loss so much greater, it may bo said that iho annals of war contain no record of an achievement to brilliant. For tho honor of humanity, wo hope Santa Anna and Cos, and their odiccrs, havo not been shot yet tho fate of Fanning and his men, murdered in cold blood, would seem to justify tho retribution, Later, Now Orleans papers of the oih contain no !ulcr advices from Texas than thoso received through papers of tho 3d, lint tho following letter to a mercantile house in Philadelphia, gives a later and somewhat different version of tho story. New Oiilevns, May 5. Dear Sir I suppose you havo heard tho report of Houston's being victorious in Texas, and capturing Santa Anna. I think there is but little doubt ho has had a battle, ond been victorious, but I do not think to tho extent reported. As to Santa Anna's capturo it is not so, I am certain, as ho was expected hourly at Mutamoras, when oves sol (since arrived here) loft thero, lono- bo lore this baltlo was fought. It is, howev er, probablo tho roport originated in tho lad ot there being an officer in tho Mexi can army, named Sontano, who may havo been taken prisoner. Gen. Green, ono of tho pr.nc.palToxau officcrs.has just return, ed from up tho river, and inform mo that there will be a body of 700 men from Mis sissippi and reuncssec, who will bo at I laquiuime to go by land on the 12th May there will be another body of 1000 or moro by the 35ih. Tho 700 volunteers who loft hero for Florida, will bo back (disbanded) in a day or two, nnd at least 300 of them will prove efficient soldiers; one of tho best officers is hero wailing their arrival, to iioavo lmnicuiatciy atterwarus. Mr.TAMon.A9, April 21, 103G. Fourleen Amorican prisoners, taken at the rivur Nueces, tiro hero in confinement, aud'wero lo havo been shot yesterday. On the day provious, tlio ladies ol tins place presented a petition to GoncralFcriiaiidef, praying nun iu uuiuy mu vauuuuuu, wihoii, however, had no effect. ln tho evening, the merchants called on him in a body, and offered to pay $530,000 for their ransom, which amount wo aro now about raising by subscription.

From the Charles ton Patriot of Saturday afternoon, May 1-1 Col. White, Delcgato in Congress from Florida, arrived hero last night fiom Au custa, having seen and conversed with the passengers who arrived at a lalo hour the night before from Columbus. Thero is no longer a doubt of a general Creek war. Fifty families have boon murdered, and 2000 people fled to Columbus for protcc lion ! Thostnto of that frontier is most disas trous. There nro not 500 ellectivc men between the Creek and Seniinoles lincs.and all Florida will be devastated, if the Gov ernors of South Carolina and Georgia do not send mounted men to tho Florida lino and to Tallahassee. The Seminoles aro advancing on Tallahassee. The Creeks will be forced upon it. Gon. Scott is in "summer quarters." Col. White has sent on express to Gon Scott, and made an appeal to the Govern ors ol faoulli Carolina and Uoorgia, to send mounted men to Tallahassee and tho Flor ida line, to save middle Florida from rob bery and murder in this disgraceful Indian and Seminole war. A marginal note on the Tallahassee Flo ridian of tho 7th May, states that " Saint Marks was attacked last night. Tho In dians were repulsed. Wo iuffiircd no loss; they will doubtless make another attempt in a day or two. Thoro is not an U. S. soldier within the distance uf 120 miles. There i? 3,000,000 of property in this city, and for the protection of which wc cannot possibly raiso moro than two hundred men. Something must be done, and quickly too, or otherwise this countiy will bo irrctriev ably lost." Tho Governor sent a messenger this morning to Apalachicola to charter a steam boat which will proceed to the Withlacoo1 chio to attempt the relief of Copt. Hod man's company, stationed on the banks of this river. They wore loft thero on tho 5th of April, and nothing has been heard of them since. They were strongly posted in a block house, and there aro some hopes that they have maintained their position. The steamboat will touch at St Marks, to receive men and arms for tho expedition. From Hudson's (.V. V".)A"c ios Room BeoKs, Extract of a letter dated Coi.uwnus.Ga. May II, 1030 : "Dear Sir ; The excite ment here on the subject of tho Creek war, exceeds any thing I havo ever met with. Proceeding from Columbus cn Mouday. to.vard tho Creek nation, I was surprised to find the roads in nil directions blocked up with carriages, horses, mules, men, women and children, flying in tho utmost terror nnd consternation, for saloly from tho Indians. The men woro all armed some with muskets, others with pistols and cutlasses ; and, in fact, all descriptions of weapons wero put in requisition. Iho streets are lined on cither hand with the poor inhabitants, who are lighting their Dutch firc., and preparing to take a hasty meal. Wo arc in the hotel eight in a room; and without, the troops arc muster ing on every hand, and inarching to their destined quarters. Though thoro are many reports in circulation, you must not believe one-fourth of what you hear. It is true the Indians arc rising, and somo 20 persons havo been killed. The chiefs dcclaro they can no longer control tho warriors, and ad visa tho whiles lo leave tho nilion, which they aro doing with the utmost precipita tion, leaving their property behind llicm to the mercy of iho savago foe, who aro de stroying every thing within thoir roach.

The southern members, in particular, seem to esteem it as a triumph nnd an acquisition, on thoir part. In tho debate in tho House, to day, whorcin this subject was alluded to, many of tho southern members went so far ns to hail Texas as a southern state, and to claim for it tho countcnanco and support and prolectiun of tho federal government,

preparatory to its admission into tho Union. Mr. Wiso and Mr Calhoun, of Kentucky, talked nbout the sad and gloomy expression which tho intclligonco had spread ovor tho countenances of tho northern! members, and tho gratification which it olTorded lo thoso from tho South. They said Texas was bono of their bone, and ficsh of their flesh, and the slavcholding interest of the South must possess it and unite with it. lu rcnlv to these gentlemen, only ono member seemed to toko a correct view of tho matter. Mr Vanderpoel said that it was too early to debate tho question of tho admission of Texas into tho Union ; but when it did como up for deliberation, ho should not oppose it on the ground that it would become a slavoholdins stale. Ho believed that its acquisition would havo tho ctlect to circumscribe instead ot extending tho slave region ; nnd that its first results would be to add Maryland and Virginia and INorlh Carolina lo iho list ol non slavchold ing states.

A commu nication signed A. 1)., in another column, arraigns Secretary Cass in terms less measured in somo instances, than wo ap provo. but, as wc apprehend, with substan tial accuracy of neglect of duty, and dis reaard of tho rights nnd interests of tho army. Our observation has satisfied us that those observations are not unfounded, wc have on more than ono occasion felt it incumbent upon us to press upon Congress on inquiry into tho conduct ol the war do partment in reference to tho Florida cam paign, and every day adds to our convic tion that such an inquiry is duo to tho ua tion to tho memory of tho slaughtered Dade and his companions, nud to the wan dorins survivors of the families, chased with tiro and the tomahawk from tho homes, which their country s power, properly di reeled, should and have mado secure ond peaceful.
