Y:ilter Collon Inquire, a fort of non-des-cript Justice or tlin Peace in California, under tho reign of his Serene Highness Coninuidore Stockton who not lung ago formally annexed that favored country tn tttl - Union,. mil proclaim' cil himself ( Inventor, Captain CrcticralCoininaiid or-iu-Chiof, and every thing else short of Km peror, therein. Tlio reverend .lii-tice-of-tho Peace's letter is well enough, giving an account ofhi I'leftion to that responsible post "by the suffrages ol'lhe people," in the most approved re pulilicau stylo, ami expressing the opinioirthat, i-ince his aforesaid election as a Justice of the I'eacc, (or Alc.ihle). "the misses" (the true 'democratic" phraseology) "are thoroughly with lis and right gi. nl to ge'rid of Mexican rule. Had it been otherwise," say Mr Cullon w itli j inimitable simplicity, '!ey u-imhl iicic hate elected me ".' The correctness nf -uch a process of reasoning it is not for us to dispute. The reverend .Magistrate thinks California should never bo surrendered to Mexico again, hut in toad, ho says, ''let Congress annex her to the Union as a territory, and c-t.iblMiachil govern ment." II Congress suppose they can do the thing any stronger than Commodore .Stockton has ilono it already they will probably find them selves mistaken. Our military and nival olli cers have got "the knack'' of annexation to a charm. lint, as wc have remarked, this letter ol the Rev. Inquire Cnlton is well enough, though it is )iorhais tinctured witli a spice of tlio carnal cm ings of conquest that is moro appropriate to the political than the spiritual calling of its author. However, this is no special concern of our. Our present object, in noticing the letter at all, is to call attention ton sample or two of tlio philo sophical reflections with which the Sentinel in troduces it to its readers. These aro in every rc-pect woithy the reputation that our friend has already attained by means of hi-, profound dis quisitions on the inevitable "destiny" of the Spanish American race "who aro to di-appoir be fore the Anglo Swnn as the Indians did be fore their own ancestors." Mr. Colton says, among other things, that ho "einpannelcd the first jury that ever sat in Cali fornia," whereat the Sentinel indulges in the fol lowing hurst of feeling : "Only think (') that llic trial by jury is unknown to them in this p irticiilur llii-y nrehnt so enlightened as the sjnvous were in the time of Alircd, inoic than t00 years ago." The Sentinel having thus "broken ground" proceeds as follows: "Who that carefully enntrmn'ntes th detracted, de graded conuitiuu ol me Alexic.in .ntion ; the violence, tyranny ami haughty dictation ol i.er priests ami iles. p its, the iguuinut.s.nv ish an I almost hopeless degrada non ot'the bruti-h misses, the hiirh-iii-iu ol her nrin ncrs, tlie iuhuinanity of tier nitional law, tlie iii"T,'rc products ot her ter tile soil, the ninn-i run-sslem, which. uniler tlie sacred Inlne ol tL'!t,onu, cru-hcs ihe body o the uil-l,.'lll.l wen uigu itii'iiiiu it'':, tuc s0iu ny uij mg up all its noblest impulses nu I iinteii'iluiugits siililim est aspinitioiis who can doubt th , our uiva-inn will be the dawning nt a mure prupitiuiu day upon (his much abused people I" And this is the .Sentinel's description of the character and condition of tho people again-t whom it desires to see arrayed the wh de naval and military power of this vast Union! Hut when wo poor Whigs venture to suggest that neither ju-ticc, nor true magnanimity, nor self- defence, nor national pride, dent m led that our armies should im5tliismi-eiab!- sh ulow of republic, and thrust upon its unhappy citizen ground to the earth by domestic oppres-ion, the unhallowed civilization and liberty that Vai: confers, the tune is changed ! Then, Mexico j becomes the Kxm.A mi of 181U anil the Whig-I are branded as federalists I What troublesome inconsistencies this thirst for fine writing expos es us to !

We do not say that bridges can ml be constructed acros, ilm waters mentioned, nor that tho route indicated may not lie a feasible one, inthc abstract. What wesay is that no such bridges cicr icill bo built, and that no such route ctcr in' be traversed by a train of cars. This islho light in which wc are now debating the matter. Should thc time over come wlienthein triiisic feasibility of such a project should l'tn lis? determined, wc will endeavor to give it our candid attention. We know not, and we care not, what particular iutere-ts or views are at tempted to bo subserved by representing that Ogdensbiirgh may bo connected, bv a continu ous lino of railway across Lair Chnmplain, with Hoston ; we have only to say that in our opinion it cannot be done. Hut how then can this formidable obstaclobe best surmounted, is tho question that remains. We answer, by carrying a railway around it, or by crossing it at that point which is, during the longest period of the year, unobstructed by ice. In either of the-e rases, our excellent friend the "Islander" will observe that lliirlingtou must lie prodigiously lienelitted a railway that should go around the Lake must connect with tho Ik ton railways at Hurlington, and Hinlington is the i ery point whence the I-iko must bo crossed' on tho second supposition, Our correspondent will probably admit that lii '.innuil Sibbath of at least a month," during which he siige-ts that tho Iron IIor.-o must he haltered at Hurlington, would bo likely lo be greatly shortened by the improved appliances which skill and science, (when lit the pay of the business enterprise of Coinuitinity) would bring to hear iikmi tho somewhat poetical "shield" of icu which he makes our goisl "old liidv," the J Lake, "draw over her Iw-om" to protect "her children" (tho lish, wo presume).
