Lvery linn nf this document bears cv- loncc that il was intended to ho a privalo loiter of instructions, for Mr. Shannon's guid ance. It was Ins business to uso it, as op portunity offered, to present tho several views which il coniuined, as his own pru- Jencc, nnd discretion might diclulc. He was furnished wilh n plan of operations, nnd ils success depended entirely upon the caution antl Ingenuity wilh which it was carried into effect. His vnrv first sten is to submit tho whole thing to tho Mexican Secretary ! Ho coolly copies Mr. Calhoun's letter of instruc tions, signs his own name to it, and despatch es it to the Mexican covernmcnt ! All tho private directions which Mr. Calhoun has given linn : the revelations of the secret policy and intentions of the United Stales ; iho whole scheme by which our government has long been seeking to dupe and cajole the government of Mexico ; all nre thrown open, deliberately copied, and, with the sfi:- dor affixed, aid hefnri. llm Si.rrnini.. nf il.m government against which they arc directed ! This, it must he conceded, was a most re markable beginning. Hut il is quite crlipsed by what ensued. Mi. Rejon, iho Mexican Secretary, replies to (his loiter from Mr. Shannon, far less angrily than was to bo an ticipated. Air. Shannon, repeating Mr. Cal houn's private information to him, hud in formed Air. Ilejon that fur the last twenty ..r l...r 'n , i ., , . ihij, tii V.UHISU, iieture i exas unci inoiignt ol rebelling, wlulo Us rightful connection wilh and submission to Mexico were undis puted,) ihe United States has been secielly striving to gain possession of her territory! Mr. Kejiin replies, that this is a virtual con fession that Ihe United Slates have dealt treacherously wilh the Government of Alexi co, inasmuch us the fact now confessed, has lerelnfnro been tepealedlv tlisavowed hv our Government. He presses llii. fact tinnn Mr. Shannon's attention very forcibly and wilh "real ability. Indeed, his desp ilch is ono of tho ablest diplomatic papers ever is sued by Mexico, anil it not answered will bu considered by tlm civilized world, as placing llm United btates in a most dishonorable po sition, as having conquered Texas, first by colonizition and ihen by exciting insurrec tion against its sovereign. Air. Shannon, lifter having heaped upon Alexico epithets far more opprobrious and insulting than any he receives in return, complains that this response is disrespectful ; and, in offended dignity, nnd without deigning to reply to its reasoning or to expose what ho calls its "misconstruction," dcmrinis that it be with drawn ! To which Mr Sejun very properly rejoins that, so fir from withdrawing it, ho is instructed lp repeat and insist upon it, in every p midline. And ihus Mr. Shannon is left, in tho most pitiable predicament ever en countered by a diplomatist. Ho cannot go on wilh his correspondence, without with drawing his own demand and thus make him self doubly ridiculous; and if he nltempis lo carry out the game, and plunge the country into war on his accounl, Conjress will soon bring him to his senses in that particular.

In Massachusetts nnd in several other Stales of tho North, frco colored persons are made citizens ; anil it is cluimcd ihat ihe Constiluliiin makes no distinction between colored and white citizens. South Carolina, however, refuses lo rerognizo colored citi zens of (Massachusetts as citizens in the ac ceptation of llm Constitution, and nnl only wiihout the "piivilegi's nnd immunities" which it is contended llm Constitution of llie IJ. S. secures In them, hut passes laws im prisoning them whenever lliey come wiihin her jurisdiction. To this Massachusetts ob jects; and being n law -hiving Stale, and til ways ready to asceitain her Constitutional rights in tho mode pointed nut by the Con stitution itself, sho has determined lo appeal io tho Supremo Courl for its constriictiun of-j tho provision of tho Constitution which wo have quoted.

Hero it will he seen that the Slate of South Carolina, which is forever pretending to stand by tho Constitution, assumes, as she has heretofore done, lo interpret that in strument according to what she considers her own interests, regardless of iho interests and tho rights nf others I Instead of quietly re ferring ihe subject in dispute In thu only tri bunal which can constitutionally lake cog niz men of iho question at issue, she imou denllv places herself abovu that sacred in strument, and gravely expels iho agent of M issachuselts from her territory, and huils defiance at tho whole Union !

Wo say nothing, at present, of the part whicl Air. Calhoun has hoi no in the matter, or of the strange attitude into which hn has forced llm government of thu United Stales, to wards (he nations of Europe. But we find il difficult to believe, that there is a Justice oflho I'eaco in the country, who could not have c inducted his part of tho negotiation better than Air. Wilson Shannon has done. He seems nnt in havo erred through wilful ness, hul from sheer ignorance nnd slupidi- .... sv . rs ly.
