CHINA. Altliougli tlio lust arrival from England brought us 119 furllicr accounts of tho opera tions of tho English forces against Canton, yet do the English papers wo received by the steamer C.tlc.loui.i, contain several Indi cations of the intentions of tlio now adminis tration towords the Celestial Empire. And those, would seem to us, to portend a deter mination on the part of the present moinhors of the Hritish governmunt to carry out fully tlio views of thoir predecessors, and probably to give to tli;m a still further 0 t -nsior. We see that volunteers from the Royal Artillery, to serve in China, aro called for, and it is udded that a great number had come forward that a new description of projectile weapon had been tested at the Arsenal at Woolwich, and icing found highly cffoclivo, a quantity had heen ordered for service in China. It should also bo recollected that recently in his place in thu Ilousa of Lords, the lluku of Wellington declared that tlio conduct of the Chinese fully jiHtifiud the hostilities com menced against them, and that on another occasion the same eminent personage sail "that Lngland could not carry on a little War." Wo infer, therefore, that speedy termination of hostilities is certainly not ex pected, while it is not unlikely, that highcrob jects and larger armuncnts ara now in con templation thin were at first thought of. The Duko of Wellington, whoso influence will now bo paramount in lliu Mulish Cabinet, gained his first laurels in British India, anil though his liter services woro tnoro calcula ted to engross the attention of Europo, tho perseverance, tilont and succoss which mar ked his early career on the more distant field, kavo as they became known and appreciated, contributed, not a little to place him on the high pinnacle of famn wIipiu ho now stands. Like all British Indian Officers, hn is likely to ontertain ideas of continued British tng grandizomont in that quarter of tho Globe, mid tho most perfect contempt of tho means of resistance in the power of the natives. Theso considerations should also, perhaps, havo their weight in considering the future policy which will bo adopted by England towards China. A Boston correspondent of the Journal of Commerce, giving an account of a lecture by John Quincy Adams, in which lie justi fies the war waged against China, says: "Ho wont through the whnlu history of tho intcr eoitrs'i I ctw..-en thu t'.uropr-vns and the P.m-im-i!, ..nil aye pn ti.-ulnr am. -apiue 3 -counts of tho inter 11 Lm'iass.cs tlio Court of St James to tho "l ather nf the flowery I.tnd." lie considered the opium question I) it a tr Ihng inci lent in tin- cam.' of tho present war with China, an J no inorelhoori"in of it than "the throwing overboard of a few chests of tho tea in the harbor of lloston was the oiigm nf the war of tho Revolution's. An 1 ho is right. Ho car ried b:k the causes of tin war to the inlinity first given to Lord .apii-r, in the rej. ction of ihe commu nications, which he was ordered, hv his government, to make directly to llie Vj00 Roy of Canton, and iho proceeding-, that succeeded that transaction." "Mr. .Adam, in the statement of facts in hi- narrative, was as accurst as if lis had msdc a vis t to tho celestial empire himself." Now, it so happens, that either Mr. Adams is misrepresented in these paragraphs, or his accuracy in the statement of facts is not so pel feet as his reporter would havo us believe. He is made to sneak of the indif- nity givon to Lord Napier, when tho truth is, if tho history of Lord Napier's embassy which wo have read be worth a farthing, that all the indignity either given or received in the affair, was suffered by the Chinese. The whole story is simply this : When the British East India Company's superinten dence ol the trado to China had expired, a commission was issued to Lord Napier, and two others, to proceed to China to ncgotiato with tho authorities. In this commission they wore enjuined not to excite tho prejudices of the Chinese in any way, and by a strict ob servance of their forms and ceremonies, to conciliate their friendly feelings. But in instructions afterwards sent to Lord Napier, he was directed by Lord I'almorslon, ignor antly no doubt, to convey his letters, ty-c. directly to the Vice-Roy. It appears, however, that by tho edicts nnd immemorial custom of the Empire, 110 foreigner is allowed to havo diruet commu nication with the Vice-Roy, and that all pa pers and documents intended for him, 1111131 bo transmitted through the Mong merchants, who are in order of licensed traders. Lord Napier, in obedience to thi letter of his last instructions, refused to conform to this prac tice, and consequently his communication! wero returned. Ho construed tho act into an indignity, worked himself into a towering passion, full to abusing the government and the authorities, hy placarding them as dolls and savages, and then, orshorlly afterwards, returned .loinn. Suppose a Cuargu d' U f.ires fi 0111 the United States should insist upon handing his credentials, not to tho min ister to which the British Constitution com mits such business, but to Queen Victoria in person, would there be any "indignity" in quietly rebuking his insolence by putting him in tho right course ?

For years we have been rcccivimr French .S'dks, Wines and frip pery cither entirely free or upon tlio payment of duties nearly nominal. Yet all this time there hardly one of the staples of Ihe United S'tatcs that is not virtually ;-ou7i'rd from entering the ports of France ! Our Grain, our llocf, our Pork, onr Butler, Cheese, Fish, Rice, iic &c. as well as all our varied Manufactures, are shut out from her markets; our Tobacco is taxed (sevcn or eight hundred per cent. so h'gh tint "the consumption of that country is not more than half as much as it was fifty years ago, though its population meantime Ins nearly doubled, and the use of foreign luxuries greatly iucrcsjil. And finally Cotton, tho only American product which is admitted at a moderate duty and this beciU:o Franco cannot produce it and must ruin her own manufactures if she overtaxed it is charged fully twenty per cent, while that of Egypt is admitted at a duty twenty-fivo per cent, lesj.

What American heart will not respond to the sentiment, 'Fair Tralo with oich union or nono !' Trihuns. ENGLISH COTTON vs. WMERICAN. Wo have before noticed the plans of the British Government to extend the cultivation of Cotton in their Colonies, particularly in India. The designs that were dnvylopcd last year of substituting their own production for tha slave labor production of this Coun try, by taxing the importation of ours while their own should bo admitted free of duty, and by other means, arc in a fair way of being accomplished. By referring to the English and East India papers, we find many such statements as the annexed, which show that the views expres sed last year were correct. Our Southern friends may before long seo that England is not their only market, and that the home market, which takes 2S(i,000 bales, is their most sure one, and we may see the timo when they will bo as much interested to sus tain tho homo manufacture as we are.

After quoting the article alluded to, the Mercury proceeds "Tho article, is a tissue of falsehoods from bet-in iiin to end. In tho first place, Mr. Cutt did not speak upon the passage of tho hill for a ccoloi-ical survey of the state, cith.-r on Thursday morning, or at any other time.

Wo arc not prepar ed to believe, however, that there was any sinister design upon the r.ipiilaiion of Mr C. as most certainly ho had provoked no hos tility of tlio kind ; and sure wo arc, that I-is reputation is not of a toxturo to hu injured by so puny a shaft. As a gentleman, he is universally respected ; as a man of talolits, and a sound legislator, ho stood among the first in thol louse ; and as an ardunt and effi cient suppoitcr of tho Survey Bill, ho is en titled to thanks of all friends of that meas ure.

It was a Parthian arrow, nnd the ex-minister, it is said, boasts tha' its point was poisoned while Lord Palmcrslon cor. nd crs iho embroiled stato of tho negotiations ns a de lightful legacy for him to leave to Ins Tory successor. Tho subjects will, I think, occupy n considerable place in tho President's mcsagc.

This of course, excludes tho idea or Mr. Tyler being their candidate, nsboth President and Vice President can not ho elected from one state. Thero arc certain persons in Washington, or havo been lately, who eanio to seo what they could make for Pennsylvania politicians. Tho plan, as far as I can learn, is to call together tho opposition members of Congress, soon after thu commencement of tho next ses-ion, nnd endeavor lo procure an expression ofopimon in favor of .Mr. nuchanan, of your slate. as tho parly candidate for tho Prcidency. If tins can not bo brought about, Pennsylvania will demand to lurnisli at least tho candid He for tho Vice Presidency and that will he your present Governor, David H, I'orter, Esq. These arc movements in ndvancoof the ordinary steps, liul it is sometimes "tho first step vvh ch counts. And if n man is really talked of pretty earnestly for ono office, his chance is at least pretty good for (he next. The report is, that Mr. Tlivcs, of Virginia, will oc cupy a position in the Senate, next winter, moro near ly connected with what aro called the Whig doctrines, than ho had during the extra session. Whether this is to conic from -oinc change in that gentleman' views, or from a knowledge that no measure is to he proposed upon which the friends of the late President can divide, is not known. I havo not heard anv thing to be relied on touching the aspect winch affairs aro likely to assume in Ihe oilier house, Hon. IlEsnv A. Wise has turned another somcr set, and fancies he is on his legs again. Perhaps the people of his district, who aro tired of his antics, have induced by their remonstrances and warnings ibis unexpected repentance, On Monday, tho Bill inst. Mr. Wise addressed the people of A ortlinmnlun, in w Inch nildrcss he distinct ly declared that ho could never co-operate politically with Ihe Locofocos that while in the priv ate relations of life-, they were many of them unexceptionable, yet, as a party, he believed them totally unprincipled, anil had no confidence whatever in their political integrity that he was no "third party man" wasfor no reor ganization of parlies that while he could not support Mr. Clay, having had reason to chango his opinions of that gentleman, yet ho would sustain any other Whig for the Presidency and that as IbrMartiu Van l.itren, (who would probably bo the I.ocofoco candi date for tho Presidency) ho shrank from the iilca of ever giving thai individual bis support. Mr. W also declared ihat Mr. Tyler was out of tho ipie-stion ihnt neither party would support him and he also expres sed the opinion thai Mr. Clay was equally broken down with Mr. Tyler. OPINIONS OF PrtF.'IDF.NT TYLER ON THH TARIFF. Ono of tho topics of the Message of thu President, at tho approaching session of Congress, will bo ofnecesity tho readjust ment of tho Tariff. Tho following extract from a letter addressed by Mr. Tyler, to Win. Kobinson, Jr. of Pittsburg, Pa., un der date of 17th of October, 1840, will therefore bo read witli interest . "My opinions were- fully expressed at St. Clairs ville, and at Steubenville. At both places, in regarel to the question, What arc yuur opinions ns to the Tariff J I answered Ihat I was in favor of sustaining tho Compromise Hill.

Somo things nrevcry difficult lo otno men nnd very easy to others t nnu, incrciorc, winio mis suiucce seems vcrv dillicull In the iimlerstaudini: of Gover nor Paine, it was not at all so lo the finnicrs of the Federal Constilulioii.

If ho had he certainly would never havo hazarded so wild an assertion. After tho Convention had adjourned, nnd the Constitution was submitted to the people, it is true, the sub ject of removal was discussed in the Feder alist, the joint production of Hamilton, Madison nnd Jav, the two former pf whom wero the most conspicuous members of the Convention which framed tho Constitution, and may, consequently, be supposed to know something in regard to tho powers conferred by that instrument though Ihcy would not, of course, claim so much knowledge on the subject as the learned writer in tho Times newspaper. The following is an extract from the Federalist, No. 77 : "It has been mentioned as ono of theadvantages to bo expected from tlicjco-opcintinn of iho Senate, in tho business or appointments, Ihat it would cur.tril utc to tho stability cf the Administtnlion. 'I he consent of that body would bo necessary to displace ns well as to appoint. A chango of tho Chief Magistrate, therefore, would not occasion so violent or so general a revolution, in tho officers of the I-'ovcrnmeni. as might ho expected, if lie wero tho sole- disposer of .uuee-s. ,,ue-rc a man m nuy siaiion nan given sai isfactory evidence oHiis fitness for it, a new President would bo restrained fioin attempting a change in fa vor of a person more agreeable to him, by tho appre hension thai a discountenance of lliu Senate might frustrate the attempt, and bring some degree of dis credit upon himself. Those, who can best estimate the value or a steady administration, will be most disposed to prise a provision winch connects the ollieial existence of public men vvi h the approbation or ill-approbation of that body wliie-h from the great cr permanency of its own compoistion, will, in all probalility, bo less subject lo inconstancy than any other member of thu Government." The number from which this extract is ta ken, was written by Alexander Hamilton a man whose prejudices, as every body knows, wore all in favor of a strong Execu tive. And yet he anti-republican as his principles aro declared to have been, and dangerous us were tlio powers witli which, it is said, he was in favor of investing the Ex ecutive hero takes strong ground against conferring tiie transcendent power of indis criminate removal upon the President ulono and maintains that, uuiler tlio Cotistittitson, the concurrence of the Senate is, in all cases, required. So much for tho opinion of Col. Hamilton a man who, as Mr. Jeffer son declared, exercised a more commanding influence in the Convention which framed tiie Federal Constitution, than any other member of that illustrous body. But ulthougl the opinions of such a man, on a controvcr led question of Constitutional Law would be entitled to great consideration on ordinary occasions, ct when they come in conflict witli the oracular responses fioin lb" oJito- rial tripod of tho Boston times, 1 admit that they should bo regarded witli many grains of allowance. I shall accordingly proceed to fortyfy tho Colonel's opinions with another authority, confessedly entitled to somo little regitrd among intelligent men, though of course it dwindles into insignificance when opposed by the rudicnt genius who daily il luminates the columns of the Times with his ethereal wisdom. 1 allude to the IIo.N. Joseph Story, L. L. D., a man who has occupied a seat on the bench of tho Su premo Court of the United States for near ly thirty years, wiio has adorned thatgravo and dignified tribunal hy his 'virtues illus trated it by ids genius and learning and honored it by his spotless integrity. For Iwenly-fottr years ho sat by iho sitlo of the illustrious Marshall was honored with his friendship and, more than any other man, enjoyed his confidence and regard and 1 need not say to you who know him so well, that both in this Country and in England hu is regarded as a man of thu profotindust ju ridical learning, and as the ripest It-gal scho ir in the Union. In discussing this ques tion, in his work entitled "Commentaries on tlio Constitution," a production which is regarded as a standard authority in all the States, which has been republished in Eng land, nnd highly complimented by tho ablest jurist in that country for its enlarged and lib eral views, Judgo Story says : 'The- lsnmiaco of tho Constitution is. that tho Presi kill 'shall ueininate, nnd hy and with the advice and consent of .Sen ito appoint,' evic. The- power to nominate docs not naturally or necessarily include the oovvcr to icmove'. and if the power lo appoint does mrhi In it, then tho latter belongs conjoinily to Ihe Kxccutive and iho Senate. In short, the removal takes place in virtue of the new appointment, by mere operation of law. It results, and is not se-painble, from tlio appointment itselli Thu was the doctrine uiaiiitaineil wilh great earnestness by tho Federalist, and it had a most material lendcucy lo quiet tho just alarms of iho overwhelming inlluence-, and aibilrary c.xorcisj of this prerogative of iho Kxecutive-, which minhtnrovo ratal lo iho personal independence nnd freedom of opinion o public u!licers,ns well as lo the nubho liberties of iho country. Indce-d it is utterly impossible not to feel Ihat if tliis unlimited power of removal does exist, it may he made, m iho hands of n bold and de-signing man of high ambition, and feeble pruic pies, an inslruiium of tho worst oppression nnd most vindictive VTiigcane-o. It was not, therefore-, without mason, that it was urged by the authors of iho IVderahst. the power of rcinoual was mci- drill lo tho power of apjioinlmcut- it would bo a most iinjuslilisbloconstructionorihe Constitution and of Us implied powers lo In Id otherwise. That such n prerogative in tho l-.xecutivo was in Us own nature monarchical and aibilrary, and tnuneiitly danuerous In iho best interests, as well ns to Iho lib erties nf tho country. It would convert till tlio ofti ccrs of iho country into tho nie o tool, nnd cii-nlures of ihe Piesidint. Adcpeudanie so scrvi'r, on one individual, would .'clcr men i f high and honorable niiuds from ingaimg m inu putjiic service. And if, fniitrnrv lo CM-rclaiKUI.

Such arc-the opi ilons ofCol. Hamilton and J udgo Story, on the Constitutional question, nnd in thoir opinions Mr Webster has repeat edly uxpicsscd his full and hourly concur rence. 1 havo not now n volume of hi? speeches nt hand, hut you will find ho discus ses the question with his usual force and per spicuity, in tho speech he madu ntthc Odeon when the silver vase was presented to liim hy your citizens a few years ago. But passing by the Constitutional question thu learned ciiticoflhu Times proceeds on the score of expediency, nnd asks : "If a Collector hcldctovtod in robbim.' ihe Treasury of millions, must the President wait for Ihe Senate lo removehim 7 Ho might steal mi 1 ons moro before the Senate could assemble. Ifn Postmester General Ic eletrcted in peculation nnd in deranging the accounts of the Department for the purpose of concealing the irauo, iimsi me i're-siueui vvuii iui uu uuiuiu ... a scmblcl" To which profound question I beg leave humbly to reply in the negative. But as when a vacancy occurs in tlio nbsenco of thn Senate, tho 'resident now proceeds to fill it, for the time, on his own responsibility so in the case supposed, tho President could remove the unfaithful officer forthwith, sub ject, however, lo the action of the Senate as soonas they assemble. If thoy should con cur witli tho President in regarding the caus es of the removal sufficient, tliey would, of course, approve of his conduct. If not, tho injured man, who had been so unjustly de trraded, would, at once, bo restored to his station. But lolling go of tho question of removal from office, in which his success was, per haps, neither distinguished nor satisfactory the gallant Knight of the Times sallies forth in a general assault upon that portion of the Message which treats of the Veto power. But hero he must excuse me from following him on his Quixotic expedition. For hi historical errors nnu misrepresentations arc so numerous, his ignorance is so deplorable and his scurrility so gross, tint even if I ha tho inclination, I havo not sufficient time to expose them. I will, however, notice a paragraph, as it furnishes at once a fair specimen of 1 1 is modesty and his historical accuracy. In speaking of that portion of the Governor's message which asserts that the veto power has no place in our Const! tulion, tliis luminous expounder of constitu lional law observes : 'Governor Paine siys that the early solders of Vermont were too jealous or liberty to allow such a power any place in their Constitution. Does the Governor mean by ihe early settlers or Vermont those who devised nnd adopted its present ConstitonI II so, to upset his theory completely, ice would in form him thai the rctoipoirer is encrraftcd on this eery Constitution. It authorized the Governor and Council to propose amendments to bills, and lo sus pend them to tho next session of the Legislature,! such amendments bo not adopted bv the Represen tatives, so much for Ibis boast about jealousy of liberty !" Now one would suppose, from the bold n ess with which he makes his asset lions that this addle- brained ignoramus knew something about what he was writing. But ho does not even seom to be aware, that un der our present Constitution we havo no Council at ill in 1 in reply to his assertion, that it confers upon the Oevernor the veto power, I will only call the attention of the learned gentleman lo the following extract from the Constitution of Vermont : Chap. 2d. Sccion 22d. "F.vcry Rill, which shall have passed the Senate and Hoiuo of Heprcsentatives shall before it becomes a law, le presented to the Gov ernor j if he approve, he shall sign it ; if not, he shall return it, with his objections, in writing, lo the House to which it shall haveoriginated j winch shall proceed lo reconside-r it. If, upon such reconsideration, a ma jority of tho House shall pass Ihe bill, it shall, togeth er with the objec-ioiis, be sent to the other House, bv which it shall, likewise-, bo reconsidered, nnd, if ap" ' proved by a majority or that House-, it shall become a law." Sucli is tho republican language af our Constitution, and I cannot record a better commentary upon the ridiculous and presump tuous assertions of thu Critic of tlio Times, ... iu ii, man uy quoting Ills own language in regard to (7overnor Paine "Who is this profound Constitutional lawver this enlightened statesman ? He probably never read a treatise upon civil government. i - ... , . . - 1 .urn is noi ueticr acquainted wilh political piniosopliy than ninoly-mno men of any hundred who can bo found in the villages of Now England. All indignation, at sucli arrogant pretension, is thoroughly overpow ered by mirth. Laughter is nil that is left us, and an inclination to laugh, loud and long, is irreprcssablo 1" But 1 have already extended my remarks to a much greater length than I origin ally inionded, and will bring them (o a speedy termination. When my attention was first called to the papers which contained this learned criticism, I feared from the llourish of trumpets and the display of heraldry with which the assault was preceded, that our new Governor would be ulterlv demolished In die fury of the onset. But, in the language of Mr. Webster, "I breathed easier and freer" when I perceived tint "ihe vigor and suc cess of tlio war did not quite como up to the lofty and sounding phrase of the manifesto." A word of caution to tlio inflated booby of the Times, and then I will relievo jou. When lie next undertakes to illuminate the ignor ance of thu Green Mountain boys, I advise linn to study his alphabet- Wo arc a plain, republican people. Wo make no pretensions to extraordinary learning. We never boast Wo never swagger. And when a man, of such huge dimensions us they learned critic in question, comes all the way fioin Boston, and with tho pomp and paraelu of a Beacon street duiiely, undertakes to instruct us in matters pertaining to our own Constitution, wo advise him to exhibit some evidence that he has seen the authorities to which he ie fers us that ho has read the works from which he pretends to quote hnd. Ihai ho is uol himself utterly ignorant on every subject upon which lie wishes to enlighten us.
