Tlio ship is scudding along nnder a strong breeze, now on tlie quarter ; the ripples net upon the wines, seething in our wake; the stout old Dane boiinrches the wdiite planks, every now and then shouting to the man at the wheel, " No iyer,', ' keep 'or loo!." Then we sit on the green settees, as evening comes up in a grav stripe out of the Eastern lino of horizon. The smoke of Ihu captain's pips floats n way in blue clouds under the crot chet, the carpenters piano " forard" is whi-king out "havings, nnd the steeragers are looking on, lounging over the water c.isks, or enjoying tlio last of the sun on the top of the long boat : the ducks quack, and now and then the mu-ical laugh of one of the light heat ted (ierman girl singsout over the ica.

FRIDAY MORNING, OCTODKll 2, 1816. The Wnr with Mexico. Tho Sentinel and Democrat Insists upon it that " tho unexampled obstinacy and depravity of a Whig Senator has entailed a wnr upon this Country for month'", perhaps for years." Is it not rather singular that locofoco newspa pers all over tho country, the Sentinel as well as tho rest, have been pouring out vials of wrath and denunciation upon tho Whigs for months, fororrosixo this Mexican War I They tho Whigs havo been branded as enemies of their Country, British Whigs, traitors, and all manner of enormities, because they Jiave, from tho begin ning, resolutely opposed both tho commence ment and tho continuance of this Polk-and-Dal-Lis pro-slavery war ; and now this consistent Sentinel is equally beside itself with rage and fu ry hecaue tho Whigs, as it says, have "entailed" this locofoco measure "upon the Country!"' What is the Sentinel driving at? Is not tlie war just as necessary now as it was four months ago ? What lias been achieved by it 1 W hy should it be terminated nor, ifit were ncr called for? Has Mexico been conquered, or humbled oven? Have wo "conquered Peace?" Has Mexico paid the Indemnity-money, or has she promisedei1 Has Polk-and-Dallas-dom fiddled and danced in "tho Halls of tho Montezuma.'?" Or has any one thing been accomplished for the attainment of which tho whole pow er of tho Uni ted States has been for months arrayed against the poverty-stricken, distracted, and feeble, Rc public of Mexico? Wo will tliank tlie Sentinel to answer any one, or all, of these questions, and then we will bo prepared to discuss witli it the " unexampled depravities "and tho " moral tur pitudes " of which it makes so wonderful a dis play. It has "blown hot and cold" about this Mexican War about long enough. Jct it "de line its position" and let its readers know why the war should bo stopped, or why it was begun, and its opinions and charges may ho entitled to respectful refutation. To the pcttifoging of the Sentinel respecting the cau-e of the defeat of tho hill giving Poll; 2,(K)(),()()0 for the purpose of purchasing a peace, wchaioa short reply. The pretence that tho war need, or will, be continued one single hour in consequence of tlio failure of that bill, is tco preposterous and absurd to merit a moment's at tention. Tho .'"I'J.OUO.OOU wa no more nmhl to give the President "aiithoriti'' as the Sentinel says, lo bring to a conclusion "tlie oxi-ting war with Mexico," than to give him "authority" to negotiate any other Treaty. The l'ioidont had. and has, all the necessaryaiithority in the premis es. The defeat of tho bill, therefore, neither ad ded to, subtracted from, nor in any respect ntl'oc ted, the authority of the President to conclude a Ttcaty of Peace with Mexico.

We don't know to whoc " sleeve " wo would sootier " pin our fiith"than to tint of the Whigs of tho old OiMMnNwn.M.Ttt of Massachusetts. There is a freshness and vigor, as w-ell as sound ness, of l'liivcti'i.E, in the "Old Biy State,'' that carries captive both the head and the heart. We love zeal in a good cause. It isasdillerent from fanaticism as a cdnllagration is from tho genial and vilifying warmth of the sin. Fanaticism beats out its brains in belialf of r.n abstraction honest and fervant zeal in a good cause, goes fi r prtelicitl benefits, and nlta'wibh good-ends. It never rejects possible advantages because it can not achieio all it desires. Tin's is the distinc tive difl'cronco between enthusiasm and fanati cism. The former is consistent with tlie ut most ardor and determination of purpose the latter is inconsistent and hurtful, because, in its headlong crrs.ade after ' Reform " it neier takes society ns it Is. There are multiplied in-tanccs, scattered oierthc world's history, of the baneful effects ofa fanatical spirit of liboity where the means employed to bring about benelicial results bale had no respect to the condition, the capaci ties, the w ants, or tlie irdfnre, id' mankind. We have tie fellowship wilh this "spirit of Progress and Improvement." It never accomplishes any thing bit ciil. and it never will. It eirr h.i we'd-di lined and consistent jntrjuse. It vcxtr know definitely, and communicates clearly, what it propo.-es to do: but it always "goes ahead,"' reckless, vindictive, relentless, and in discrim iritiug. (live ns tho sound heart, and the practical head the heart that feels and spurns Oppression and Wrong, and the head that juditioiifly, and with right means, labors for their remival. We an led lo the-e reflections by perusing the "proceedings" of the Whig Slate Conven tion of Massachusetts.

And will they call to mind, also, its low and " pure locofoco " attack upon the Free Press for an omission for which we were no more responsible than wo aro for an eelip-o of tho moon ? And then wo ask them to read Mr. Weston's conclusive refutation of its miserable imputations, which they will find he low,andtryto make a "running average" of the lalnc of its professions of regard for "Wool growers" in general, and "democratic farmers'' in particular!

Tho Aorta, Star enlightens its readers with a long and dreamy article on the new Polk Tariff, taken from the Havorl.iU (N. II.) Republican.

It is an odd proceed ing altogether, but tiie particularuu of the thing is found at tho very starting point of tho article, which is, verbatim et litcrj'im, as follows : "Which furnih"3 the greatest protection to wool growers, tli" old or the new Tarilil Topime the afiirmahtc of this question is our pres ent purpose."

It was now getting dark, mil the rain had been baiting upon them, and the wind and waves par alyzing their strength and unnerving theirspirits, fur some hours. Young Tnoaivov was the first to fail.

The concussion broke the must, and the boat immediately right ed. At this time Chancy h id become delirious, and resisted every effort of his heroic and self forgetting friend, Conolly, to detach him from his desperate hold upon the boat, and finally, throwing him-clf into the boat, he died altno-t within reach of the shore!
