Byron from Galveston Bay, whence she sailed on the I7lh instant, 'wo are informed that Con gross adjourned on the evening of that day after a long protracted sc.-sion. Previous to their adjournment they were in secret session, the results nf which had not trans pired when the vessel sailed. Wo have seen papers of (ho nth. which contain no news furl liar than previously published: the publication of the Houston Telegraph has been suspended in conse quence of the wont of ink. We nre informed by a passenger on board the B. that the town of Nnshvillc had been token and sacked by the Coman che Indians, who massacred Ihe few in habitants that remained. They can, it is said, bring fifteen thousand well armed warriors in the field. Their bravery and prowess hove always put tho Mexicans, even in the zenith of their power, in fear and trembling, whenever they made their appearance. The number now engaged in devastat ing tho frontiers ofTexas, is about 5.000 led on, it n said, by painted white men, who, being dissatisfied with the govern ment, have joined tliem, instigated and led them on to deeds of rapine ond cornogc. Several families, wo are also informed, were murdered fifteen miles from Wash ington, nnd such wus the apathy of the people in that town, no steps were taken to arrest their blood-thirsty course. President Houston has granted furloughs to nearly nil the efficient men composing the army ot the Republic, until about the middle of September, and in case of not returning at the time specified, are to fur feit all their lands, and other privileges and emoluments which they now enjoy. Vi jiu llio above as we heard it from a passenger on board the B., who, from the conversation we had with him, we do not think would misrepresent the situation of tho Texian affairs.

The army also appears to be dis?ntisfied willi President Ilnu.-ton iheir wish was to aiinck, and if possible, take Mntamoras, lint President II. would not accede to their demand, and hence Iheir discontent. SOUTH AMERICAN POLITICS. The lato Spanish provinces of South America, after undergoing a scries of most singular revolutions, and suffering for twenty yeors and upwards, nil (lie miseries of civil war, seem at length to have settled down into somewhat of a regular system. It is true, that most or all these Slates, are yet occostoually troubled with civil dis. turbunces; but these disturbances arc com parativcly of a trifling kind; and tho po 1 1 1 tea I chorocicr of llio several Slates has at length assumed a marked and distinctive typo. Vene.uki.a, New Okenada, anil EquAnon, the three provinces which Boli var attempted lo unite into the Republic of Columbia, have separated into distinct, though friendly States; nnd discarding those high aristocratic principles which Bolivar had introduced into the Comlumbi. an Constitution havn received into the theory and administration of their Govern nieiits, a In rue infusion of democracy. I ho Argentine Rki-uiii.ic (Into Buenos Ayres) ami Ciin.t, after undergoing a long series of revolutions, have established their Gov ernments upon substantially the same lib cral principles:. On the other hand, Bolivia, Nonni Pi'.iiu and South Pkku, (a new Stale lato ly formed out of tho Soul hern Peruvian province-',) have a strong infusion of aris tocracy in their Governments; and still ad here to the principles of Bolivar. It is worthy of observation, and it lends to show how intimately the di.-lrihulion of properly is connected with the form of Government, thnt in those Stales which have adopted democratic principles, even while Ihey were Spanish provinces, there were no very large fortunes. These prov inces were not so much mining, as ngricul. tural; nnd tho distribution of property was not so extremely unequal. On the other hand, tho three nristocrntic Stales, (forming the old vice royally of Peru,) de pended for their wealth on the mines, and presented the spectacle of n few grandees (immensely rich, und tho mass of the peo ple pour, with a large proportion of Afri can slaves, nnd of native Peruvians, worse oft', if possible, oven than the blacks. Thu terrible convulsions with which Peru has been lorn, were a natural consequence ol UiH false const ruction of its social system, in Bolivia, tho Spaniards longest retained llieir power; but being expelled by the arms of Bolivar, tho native aristocracy with bis nid, seized upon the reins of Government, and mora luck v. nr more wise I lift ti their brethren in the other Stales, ihey hnvo us yet succcdcd in firmly jetuiu iug it, Santa Cms, t lie President of Bolivia, seems in bo an able man. Of late tin has exhibited some disposition, to Iread in the stops of Bolivar, lo whom he owed his appoiuliiienl and In whoso political princi pies ho udlieres, and lo attempt Unit same svntem ot consolidation in the old vice roy altv of Peru, winch Bolivar tried, but could uol perpetralo, in Columbia. Ha v in? interfered in Peruvian nil'iirs, and do fouled SaInvory,who had seized tho supremo hoi Nor it v there, lie has lemeinuercd Peru into tlio'two States of North Peru, and South Peru ; introduced tho Bolivian con slitution ; and caused himself lo be elected President of both tliceo republics, so that ho Is at ono time, Ihe supreme cxe-l cut i vo of thrco nominally independent StOtCB. Snntn Cruz has lately received enmc special marks of honor from Louis.Phillip, nf France, to whoso political sentiments ho is supposed to incline; the Popo lias likewise promised to appoint him vicar general of South America. All these cir cumstances, joined (u an expedition against Chili, undertaken by some aristocratic Chi lion exiles, but countenanced and encniir. aged by Santn Cruz, have excited Ihe fears and apprehensions ol llio South American democratic Slntcs ; nnd Chili, provoked nt this interference with her domestic affairs, has declared war ngainst Bolivia and Peru. Tho Arcontino Republic has taken sides with Chili; and Kquador Bcems likely to do tho same. Santa Cruz is said to bo olorncd, and to bo desirous of on amicable adjustment of the dispute. It is to be hoped that such an adjustment will take place. Peace is extremely necessary to thu South American States; they have had wars enough in last I Item for n century to come. Bnsl. A Hut, Of nil llio remedies for "hard times" haveyct met our observation that the best is contained in the following anonymous paragraph : "When you arc obliged to obtain credit for your slock, be very careful to whom you apply as a creditor who is himself "in screws," may ruin you. Never get credit for small sums nor for any sum in different places better owe what you are obliged to owe at one place, nnd lo ono man. Every man to whom you owe five dollars will trouble you as "much, if not more than tho ono lo whom you owo a hundred. It is easier to satisfy one man limn twenty.

What it will not do is not quite so deeply enshrouded in darkness and uncertainty. Wo opino that nothing will bo done to relieve the merchants from their pre sent embarrassments. Nothing will be done to relievo the laboring classes, the manufacturers and tho mechanics from the pressure which they arc begin ning to feel, and which will crusli lliem to the dust of the eartli willi unheard of calamities, before llio expiration of ihe next winter.

Bishop Hopkins. Shu Your firet objection ngainst the Temperance Society is suchjlhot one tins to imagine its nature, define its qualities, and decipher Its appro priateness. Il is tho following "That tho Tctnpcranco Society is not based on religious, but on worldly principles." It must bo evident that a Lock or Bacon would not have advanced such a general and indistinct proposition without defining it. What are wc to undortsnnd by world ly nnd religious principles? Are they principles that have their origin in two dis tinct sources come in connection with the human mind in opposite alliance operate in adverse tendencies, and have their con elusion in moral contraries? Or do they nriso from different sources opperntc in unison, nnd havo their termination in the same result? Certainly wo think yon should havo defined your objection in some of these respects. But in abscence of nil definition wo must suppose you would have them understood as mural contraries, en tire. And it so, unless you can show thai tho Tctnpcranco Society is based on some other principle than temperance, and thai tcmporancc is not a christian virtue, which you have not attempted, you cannot prove that the Tcmpcranco Society is based on irreligious principles. Therefore your ob jection should go for nothing. But let us look at your "proof." "That society that docs not acknowledge Christ, is not based on religious but worldly prin ciples Tho Temperance Si.ciety docs not acknowledge Christ, because it admits to its membership and offices, worldly or infi delic men Therefore Die Temperance So cicty is based on worldly, and not on reli gious principles " This, I think, is the amount of your proof, in its fairest nnd strongest form. I object to it entirely, when applied to ihe Temperance Society. The first proposition is no more confined to the Temperance Society than any thing else, nnd when applied to it is false the minor proposilinn in this cafe becomes virtually the major, nnd is false, in that it makes the society to rest on men ond not on principles; therefore your conclusion is false of course. You slaio Ihe character of the men to be one thing, and lha char acter of tho society lo be another, but in your proof of your fundamental objec tion confound them. But if the character of ihose belonging to the society nro lo prove the moral character of the society, we might retort your argument and thereby entirely disprove it. That society that ad mits christians to its ofiiccs mo.-t be reli gious The Temperance Society admits christians therefore the Temperance So ciety must bo religious. Here sir your whole argument must ex plode. But you say, yon ''do not know how to judge of a society but by the men it admits to Up offices." Tins i a franker confession of ignorance than I .-Ihmld have expected. But let us try your reason, ing upon your own establishment. The English church admits such men as Henry VIII. nnd Georgo the IV. to its member ship, and to be its head these men wore libidinous profligates and vicious charac ters therefore tho English church is vi cious. Hang here sir if you please on your own argument. But the reverse is the fact in reference to the Temperance Society. Temperance is a chn-nan virtue tho Temperance Society is based on the principle of temperance thcreforo the Temperance Society is based on relig ous principles. Thus the Temperance Society acknowleeges Christ, and consequently is a christian scciety. Again, the Temperance Society is like Christ, as it is established on tho principle of doing lo others as wc would they should do tons; consequently is based on reli gious principles. Establishing the fact that temperance is a christian virtue, nnd that Ihe Temperance Society is based on tho principle of Temperance, every Robert Owen, and Thomas Paine, who joins this society acknowledges Christ. If so, view tho subject as you may, tho Temperance Society is based on religious principles. Having thus disposed of your foundation, and shown it to bo a phantom a contradic lion, we might let your wholo supcrstruc. lure go for nothing with it, but we are hardily willing to let you ofi' so cheap. I shall endeavor to show in my next liial your second objection is not much, if nny, short of a libel of the fact, and i-hould be highly reprobated. Vindex. St. A , t037.
