V!T 1R "k )ti W E& (E ST 1 U0 vti va, 'W vt, V It 1 1) A Y M O It N I N G, JANUARY, 18. Finns. We are getting lo bu quite citi fied One lire every week sometimes two and now we begin to go it two n day. On Wcdnosduy morning, Louis, the Raibcr, treated us to quite n lilllo flare up in the attic of his 6liup. just in the rear of Lathrop &. Polwin's. Wo were woke from our slumbers tby ho cry of "water ! water ! whero shall we get it? where!" And Echo answoted "where !" In the mean time the flame had hurst through llio roof, and was scraping acquaintance with Thomas's barns. A levy was finally made upon the tea kettles and wash-bowls in the noighborhoood, and water enough procured to extinguish the lire, some twenty gal Ions in the whole ! One would suppose that this was "glory enough for one day." About three o'clock, however, Justice Pike sung out, "Fire' up in this neighborhood 'hit or miss;" and all hnnd3 turned out to see the old row opposite Hie Methodic Chapel purified by tire. Hut some one having taken the pre caution to procure n barrel of water before hand, it was got under without much difli cuny, nnu we arc spared the necessity ol eaying any thing about loss or insurance. In view of these brilliant little triumphs over the devouring clement, who will hereafter be so foolish as to spend his breath in talking n.bout the necessity of reservoirs of water, and the like? W shall not. One man says he has got water enough, and will lake care of hit own property, if others will do the same Another, with ten thousand dollars buildings, and no water, is willing to pay as muck as the humble tenant who hires Ills' home! and no more; while the much larger class, who have comparatively little nt stake, are growing very philosophical on the subject. So we go. BURLINGTON FIRE CO.UPANV. The annual meeting of the Fire company takes place on Wednesday evening at Howard's. We hope there may be a full attendance, as we arc told a proposition will bo submitted to dissolve the company, and leave evoi y individual to take care of himself. Delaware. It is not probable that this State will elect a Senator at pesent. The Whigs have a majority in the House and the Administration in the Senate: and as there is no law requiring (he two Houses to meet in joint committee, boih, it is said, havo put themselves upon their reserved rights, and will leftve the Senatorial ques tion to bide the rebult o( another Canvass oflho people. VinoisiA. The Legislature of Virginia met on the 7ih inst. Thomas W. Gilmer, (.Whig) was elected Speaker by no almost unanimous vote. Gov. Campbell's lakes very strong ground against the sub-lreasu. ry, and denounces in no equivocal terms tho whole Bcntonian policy. Two. thirds the members of both branches it is said, arc dead against the rub treasury project. N. Carolina. The legislaltireof North Carolina recently instructed their Senators to vote against the tublrcasury bill, against surrendering the public land to the states, and against sundry other loco foco meas ures of the administration. These gentle man, Messrs Mangumund Brown with, out waiting for an official copy of the resolutions, have addressed n letter to the legislature inquiring whether it is intended that they t-liall "obey or resign." In reply to which, both branches of the legislature say that the original resolutions were sufficiently plain to bo comprehended by any one desirous of understanding them, nnd that self-respect forbids any further ac tion on the subject. Florida. The Convention for organiz ing a State Constitution, assembled nt the city of St. Josephs on the 3d ult. Judge Reid.ofSt Augustine, was elected Presi dent and J. Kwolwes, editor of (ho Talla hassee Watchman, Secretary. A letter from a member of the Convention, says- "With the example of so many Slates before u. we think thero can bo but little difficulty ui forming a Constitution, unless wo set up our wisdom ngniost that of all the rest of the Slates. On the subject of banks, I apprehend more difficulty than on any other." The latest news from Vera Crux, re ceived at New Orleans, is to the 3d or lth of December, and brings tho important statement that Mexico ha. declared war against France that tho sorviccs of Santa Ana have been accepted by hi government and in his first engagement liu received a wound v hich rendered the amputation of a leg necessary. Tho reader will remember that when wo published tho pusilanimous treaty jnln which Rincon, Governor of Vera Crtiz entered with tho French commander, wo stated '.hat although on the eido of the Frenchman there was no doubt ol his mj. thorily to treat, Gov. Ricon's treaty making powers were not so clear ; and that tho Moxican Government might rtf.isolo ratify I . f , r.- i. ins uuings. i low unys anerwnrus uiiito - were received from Tnmpico, which 6tated hat tho Mexican Government had refused to ratify or acknowledge tho treaty made by Rincon. It was remarked upon the re ceipt of this news by some of our colcin- pornrics that it could not bo true, as sufii cicnt timu had not elapsed for the Mexican Government to hear of the bombardment of St. J on p. do Ulloa, act upon it, nnd transmit the intelligence to Tnmpico. The riddlu is now unriddled by the fact that before the news of tho bombardment of St. Juan do Ulloa was received at Mexico and even before tho attack was made, the Mexican Congiess had passed nn act authorising tho President to declare war, in case of iho commencement of hos. tilities by the French. It was upon this act of Congress that the statement that Rtnr.on'a treaty was disallowed by Govern, mcnt was predicated. It wasn forgono con clusion which has-been subsequently veri fied by the Executive, who has declared war in form against France. It will be remembpered that among tho stipulations of I! incon was one that ho would keep but troops enough in Vera Cruz In act as a police or grrndarmci ic, under the dictation of the French. Tho first act of tho Mexican Government wan to send Santa Ana, at tho head of 5000 men, lo gnrison Vera Cruz. The French hearing of his approach seot a party on shore to spike the guns in Vera Cruz. The Mcxi cans fell upon the party thus employed slaughtered a considerable number, mid drove the survivors to their boats'. In tin engagement or skirmish Santa Ana received the wound before spoken of, and Gen. Arista was mode nrisoncr bv I ho French. It U further stated that the French had bom barded and retaken Vera Cruz. Our counts are however very meagre the loss on cither side is not given, and I he particu lars received which wo have endeavored lo classify and arrange, aru loosely slated. We wait for more dt. finite and authentic accounts. In the mean while we must say that these events aro by no moans unexpected In ns at least. The too prevalent fashion of underrating Mexico, her character, strength, and resources, produced by Texan sympathy, has not misled us, inas much as we have been deficient in extreme partiality for the young republic. We have regarded the long refusal of the Mexicans lo yield before the menacing and unreasonable demand of France as a course of conduct which ha reflected honor on tho Mexicans as a nation. Admit what her enemies say of her, that she is lorn by intestine squabbles and jealousies, and weakened by bad government, and her honorable resistance to a foreign power is placed in a light still more creditable. We fancy that the French will find aciunl war a still more difficult thing to manage than a mcro blockade. In the latter caso supplies could be obtained from shore, openly but in time of actual hostilities the matter is not so easy. We hope that Texas as we trust she will will so far forget former enmity in her present profit as to make neutral porta depots of goods for Mexico, her merchants the factors, and her roads and boundary towns tho means of conveyance of goods to (he Mexicans. The trade which has thus sprung up during the blockade, will reach its consu 'nation during the war; nnd ihn advantage of n final acknowledgment of Texian Inde pendence by Maxico will thus be secured, not on'y without bloodshed, but by cement ing a friendship It is said Hint Texas nnd Franco havo recently concluded a treaty. Tho terms aro unknown tn usbut if ihev have compromittcd the rights of Texas, as a neutral power, in relation to Mexico, thero can bo little Yankee shrewdness among the diplomats of the young republic. A foreign war may and will do Mexico good by healing her domestic quarrels, nnd uniting (actions in defence of the country againn n foreign foe. --.A. Y. Sun. A few weeks ago it will be remembered that a paragraph went the rounds, origina ting in the New Haven Herald, to Iho of feet that the United Stales Rrig Consort had been fired into by ihc French block ading squadron in the Gulf of Mexico. Tho following more particular occonnt of the matter is given in a recent number of tho Herald, being nenpy of n loticr receiv ed at New Haven from some one on board the Consort. It is dated Vera Cruz, Nov. 20. "Dear Sir : Wo arrived here day be fore yesterday, last from Havana.

He could not sav whether or not they were joined together. Their names were J. S. White and Lmiisn Grosveuor. of Calais, in tho state of Maine. Thero was n seal upon the paper also of a singular character. Stamped upon tho wax was Iho representation of n sheafof wheat sit ting on an end in a wheat Held.
