Wa!!!N(jton, March 15, 1814. Tn my Utlcr yesterday. I communicated the fact of Ihe confirmation of Judge Mason of Vir ginia to tlm Secrelaryship of the Navy, which was the only atlion of tho Senate known at the time uf mailing mv letter. It appears that the limits of Rtihert llanlntil. Jr. Esq.. nominated tnlho Collectorship of the port of Boston, was RrjEcrnn hy a large vole, as I understand. James S. Greene was confirmed tn the office nf U. S. District Attorney for the District of New Jercev. The annual appropriation bill for the support of the Military Academy at West Point i was tinner consideration in the House, ynstcrdavi when closing my letter. During that debate, the Tytnii movement for the annexation nf Texas tn the Union was alluded to, and I refer ynu to the sketch of the debate as roporlcd in this irntritinji Intelligencer, particularly to the remarks nf Mr VVinlhrnp. It is now high lime that the people of the country should fairly understand the heretofore covert designs ol the Administration, and ill? now sorrel, but well understood, negotiations fur the annexation of that Republic to iho,.Uni leii states. Had not t)10 recent disaster on hoard the I'r'oceton deprived the Executive of two impor tant members of his cabinet, a Treaty would now, undoubtedly, have been before the Senate for its ratification or rejection. The views of the late Secretaries on this subject were well known, as, also, that the terms of a treaty wore nearly, if not quite, determined upon, and arrang ed. A special Minister has been on the ground for some time past, and almost daily closeted with the Acting Presideut. The motve of Jott.t Tvi.er in this suicidal movement, so far as the Union itsolf is concern ed, is well undor.stiH.il here, and the country should also understand it. That infatuated in dividual has been led to believe that, by stak ing his Inrttmes on such an issue lie can be elo vated again by the vote of the people, to the lii'h position into which tnero accident placed him. There can be no doubt whatever that a treaty will be cninuitmicatcd tn the Senate in two weeks alter Ihe reorganization of tho Cabinet ; and it is tho duly of the free population of the North, and the West, lo see that their senti ments are well understood by ihose upon whom the final responsibility nf the spltleuiciit of this question will rest.

The Tragedy on (he Princrton Is thus deicribed by Senator PllELrs, in a letter to a friend in Boston : Washington, March 3d, 1814. Your Kind letter of yesterday came to hand this evening. My escape ftom death by the tremendous occurrence on board the "Princeton was narrower than you or the public are aware. I stood nt Ihe breech oflhenun, nnd I suppose nearer toitthnn any man, except those employed in dischnrpinE it, I bnd with mo n young lady from Marvlan I, (Miss Somcr ville,) whom 1 had iusl introduced to Col. Denton, nnd who was the onl y lady on board exposed. The Col onel nnd I were both prostrated, and he is on his back still. My hat disappeared, and I have made nn in quiry for it. The young lady's bonnet went with it tier dress was lorn. Mv surtout was torn open, nnd my pantaloons demolished. Her face was scorched, and Ihe poor gill stood like n statue, unconscious. I did not losefinv consciousness for n moment. I took a clance nt tho scene, caught her round the waist. Bird enrnen ner i eiow. i wunes-eo a scene- mere wnicn I shall not attempt to describe it was one of agony, frenzy.

I ut Ihe agonized being who had, nt that moment, made the Irvine appeal to mr, aucurrd too suri.lv that she would feel that embrace no more. The sternness of man's nature will encounter pain- nay, meet death holilly, but the asony or woman s heart in tlouht nnd uncertainty ol the truih, yet Icar inir the worst, surnasses nil.

The first tear which starlet in tn eve fell upon ihe few lines which con veyed to my beloved and devoted wife the assurance that she was not a widow, nor her children fatherless. H it it is pat ! The menus, who, hut a moment before the faml accident, were sentcd with me nt the festive Mard, blest wiih health, and clothed with honor the select and distinguished few, a nation s pride, and a nation's ornament, arc now in the pres ence nf their Ood, whither I must soon follow.

During his stay there he determined that he would re deem and liheinte each slave he had sold. A short tit te since he went to Charleston, and at an evpense of SGOOO more than he received for the slaves, purchased them bar.lr again. tie then put them on board of a vessel, and took them to Ihltimore. At Baltimore he hired an extra conveyance and brought them on to this city, where he arrived on Saturday night last. On Sunday thov were nut on hoard of the Val ley Forge, and started, with their benefactor, lor Cincinnati.

We Brieve moat sincerely to be compelled lo lecord these tragedies. ANNEXATION OF TEXAS. All our tale advices from Washington concur in the startling iinnotinccment that a project is on foot, and far advanced, for tho annexation of Texas to the United Stales. Thern is no doubt that a Irraty is already matured, signed by the President, and shortly to be presented to the Senate for its action J and, what is most alarming, the belief is con fidently expressed in some quarters (hat two thirds of the Senate can be brought to sanc tion this nefarious project. Dut we shall not believe this, till wo see it. Vet it buhooves every man lo speak out, and let our would lio rulers distinctly understand that tins is tin: point whero forbearance ceases. For one, we are ready for revolution, sooner than see tho annexation of a slave tcrrilory sufficient lo conlrol and destroy the freo labor of the nortb for tho next half centuiy. When Mr. Winthrop brought up the question in the House of Representatives, in asking for an xplantiiton of a remark of Mr. Holmes of South C.trolina, that ' tho annexation of Texas was the settled policy of the country," ho said that he did not know whether that gentleman made the remark iu jest or in ear nest. Willi the same doubt lias tho stnrf ling proposition been received every where, and wo have been slow to believe, that there existed grounds for its promulgation. There now remains liltlo reason to doubt, and it is lo tho Senate of the United States that we must look to protect the Union from this nt iiicKui 1110 executive With one exception, the Whig press lias taken bold ground on this subject, and wo are gratified to note the decided tone of tho Atlas: " We bavo, all along, until wiihin a very brief space, looked upon the project of on noxing Texas to these United Stales as the merest chimera that ever filled the brain of the most visionary politican. The project is so irrational, so manifestly against the provi stons of tho Constitution, and so diametric ally at variance with the most obvious inter estsoftho Country, lli.il wo Itavu not enter turned a serious thuught of the probability of its consummation. Wit have even believi thai some of our fiiends, who have, expressed strong feais on this subject, were catiselessU alarmed in regard to il. Tho preposterous character of tlie plan which was supposed 10 bo in operation did not entitle it, in our estima tion, to that serious and alarmed considera tion, with which some of those friends seem ed to be inclined to invest it. It has never, until recently, entered into our imagination that tho project could have found favor with any considerable number of persons connec ted with our government or that any per son, having any greater weight than the al together cnntnmptiblo influence of John Tv- i.Ett, would unuertiiKn to tunvard the meas ure, nnd stand up in its defence. Occurrcn and upon tho basis of the principles indicated hy the Whig Party, appeared lo bo more thoroughly appreciated, or moro eagerly sought for, by the greal majority of lha Peo ple, than at the present nitiiiH'ilt. If il is tho porposu of those who wield the power of tho government nt Washington, to carry through this project of Annexation, wo say at once decidedly and unequivocally lhat, rather than yield to it, we will abandon all other po litical associations, but that of opposition to this rrtoJECT. Wo will yield our high hopes of success. Wc will give up the strong attachments, which have been so dear to us. Wo will surrender the Whig cause. Wo will, even, abandon Mr. Clay. Wo will drop every other political consideration and association, and leaguo ourselves with those, whoever thoy may be, who are determined at every hazard and upon every peril to prevent the anncxaiion of tho Slavc Ten niTORY or Texas to our country." Tho National Intelligencer has a power ful article on tho subject, and wo will next week publish Mr. Webster's admirable letter, The Daily Advertiser holds tho following emphatic language, on litis subject : "Tho letters from Washington, as well as others from oilier sources, shew that in that city it is very generally understood thai no gotialions for tho purpose of uniting Texas to t lis country have been carried tn a very advanced point. It was understood that a treaty for this purpose was nearly ready to bo submitted to the Senate. We trust that these advices arc premature ; for wo can scarcely conceive that upon a subject on which there was no rnason for serresy, ex cept from lite unpopularity and inexpediency f the measure proposed, tho Executive would have conduclcd such sin important ne gotiation to such an advanced stagu in so covert a manner. If tho reports now pro mulgated are true, wc have still tho Senate lo depend upon, two-thirds of which body can hardly be expected to ratify a project so dangerous to the Union. We had hoped, and we still hopo, that such a question was lo be reserved for less troublous limes. Thu protect of tho annex ition of Texas, commending itself at once to the apparent interests ofa part of our com muiiily, and furnishing so commanding a watchword for political effect, is onu which must sooner or later he mel hy this country. Emphatically this is not the time. Willi an Executive who has tho confidence of no im portant patty in the country ; with political parlies so balanced that each claims the ma jority, and on the eve of an important nation al election; with a majority of one of the leading parties in ono branch of Congress, and of the other in tho other branch; at a limo when responsibility is thus divided, we aro in no situation to meet a question, tho discussion of which goes to tho very root of our political system. Wo cannot yet be liuvo that it will bo demanded that it be set tied now. But if this question is to be press ed upon us; if it is true that Mr. Tyler has linked himself wilh this measure as ono to make himself remembered hy a fatal mcmen to; if for this reason a Southern man has been called to the Cabinet to supply tlie A Splendid Wiiio VicTortr in Phila delphia.
