As the position of <li'w country has excited some interest, recently, in the Untied JftSies, 1 presume a letter front this t|u.trter may not prtfre wholly uninteresting to your readers. I fear, however, that many of them will be (lisapi>oiiited in learning that ; we are at present in a state of peace and quiet, and 1 that half of our citizens, at least, nre not murching toward, or on the other side of the Ilio Crande. In truth, we ure ;t most extraordinary people, and we haveu most extraordinary rtion, who at the present ' moment controls our destinies. When the of the late invasion first rrnched us in tlie East, the whon? country flew tonrins, mid it is estimated that upwards of live flmnsand men i Wefc on the march for the western frontier. At the I presem moment (here nre not probable fifty of our citite'rU i^' tft'e frda, mid as far as I can learn, with the exception i.f nbtftrt four hundred volunteers from the United States, stationed at Corpus Christi, (here is no force' collected. The Prestat'nf srfys in some | of his communications that Congress Xrtifsf meet before lie can carry on an aggressive war; in others, he will soon give us a chance, and is deliberately maturing his plans. What (lie result is to be, all ate at a lorn to determine, bftr ?he general impression prevails, that a movement u ill be made shortly, and the Executive compelled to act at ntty rate. Our Navy ii? at Mobile, procuring stores to proceed iI.iwm t'li- oniist iiiifl cnfurc," fin* hi npkiiflp of Mrti. I can ports; hu'.I the Commodore lias received assurances from the tJtute of Yucatan, of the co-operation of their Navy. lie seems satisfied from his last interview with ifre Governor of Yucatan, that there is not the most remote probability of their reunion to the centra! government of Mexico. The President aiul members of the Cabinet are at Houston, una the archives have been sent for from Austin, btu the citizens t?f (hut portion of the country have determined that they shall not be taken awuy, and they have all been packed up for two months or more. If a Congress convened, it must inert n? the city of Austin, or a quorum will not be obtained. His Excellency will probably be compelled to m ike rttlMlfer tourney to the northern frontier before Austin is abandoned. Our financial matters are in a deplorable condition. The last Congress, according to the fashion of the day, virtu illy* repudiated th- former promises of the government,and authorised the issue of Exchequer hills to the amount of Sfr*2.M>,t>tK>, for the expenses of the current year, redeemable in fqiocie. About $H),(XX) have been Issued ,-inre the 1st of February, and the p iper is now at fifty per cent discount, and falling. It is feared that it will "follow in the strns of its illustrious pr niece.-.-ors," before the year eiuu. With judicious management, however, and a continuance of the usual exports, it will lie nearly exhausted at the end of that period. Its depression arise:; front a disinclination to hold it, and it cannot ut; sum ut ue uir uuircuiy ui nr.- ci'iuiuy at uu, it being seldom sees or offered in trade. The prospects of our planters never were brighter The cotton crop looks uncommonly promising, and we Mull probably export double the quantity of cotton next season tliar we did the last. The country is also rapidly ftllinf "P. and preparations ar" making for n large importation of French, German, ami English colon its in the fall. Little credit now obtains to the iden that England isHssisting our enemies in the struggle, with any ulterior views towards our recovery by Mexico, and a subsequent acquisition by England by treaty of cession. We feel satis lied that Mexico never ran recover the country unless another people make war for her. und if that should Ih? the case, I presume we could find ns powerful on oily ns Mexico can. Our last mail from Bexar brines us the melancholy titling of the d''ath of Cornelius Van Ness, Esq., one of our most active nnd valuable men. He was the son of your lormer Minister to Spain, and during bia residence of five years in the country, lins annually occupied a scat in our National Congress, and his talents have given him it most prominent position there. Ilia death was accidental. Biding with a friend on horseback, and each of them currying rifles, his friend's horse became restive, arid in the effort to ciuiet him, the rifle was discharged, and the contents lodged in the body of Mr V. N., who survived but a few hours. Our city of the seas is becoming the favorite resort for the country planters. Several of them have rented houses for their families during the summer, him wc nave a it*w humnu-r vnuura imin nrw vrlenn.?. The luxurienof sen bathing, finli nnd oysters, maybe enjoyed during the entire fciisoii, and the constant aoa breeie, and delightful drive on the bench, whichis similar to that of Nahnnt, and ismiterrui>ted for thirtv-five niilea, will always render this island a desirable residence for n southern climate. Yours, respectfully, Arc. II. Urn. Hamilton's Letter. T? tut. F.ihto? or thi C'ii*ai.r.?Tox Mmn in :? Hih :?Whilst I ran take no sort of exception to the very friendly and respectful criticism of vonr corrosjiondcu't (who subscribes himself a citizen of Texas), on the remarks which I made at a public meeting of the c itizens ofhreand Baker counties, at Palmyra, Georgia, I should nevertheless regret, if any thing I did say, or could haso said, on the occasion in qucstiou, should damp, in the slightest degree, the ardor of those u ho may feci di?|>osed to adventure, either their blood or traaaure, in the cause of our young and closely related sister Republic. Those who were present at that meeting, will, I am sure, do justice to the earnestness and zeal w ith which 1 prised the necessity of luting prepared to nll'orJ timely succor to our friends in that quarter, whilst I suggested, with groat deference, the impolicy of sending forces and expeditions into the country, so totally unprovided as to he a source of embarrassment, rather thnu assistance, to those for whose aid they might be designed. Kiom the most authentic odvices then received from Texas, it was ascertained that the forces General Arista hail sent to San Antonio had fallen hark on the western bank of the Rio Grande, and hence 1 did not believe that serious concentration of the troops of Mexico w ould tak? place until the autumn, when, I thought, a serious invasion of the cuuntry would take place. Considerations of delicacy which belong to my relations as a citizen of the United States, forbid my narrating what I said in regard to the duties and obligations which such a crisis would imposu on those - i-- i 1 -I-J 1 IL ...I . ... ... T ... I w IIU nwu luruwmfl iu iu x < * ?um iv sustain the cause. It has long been an approved maxim, "tlmt it is dangerous to despise your enemy too much." Whilst I admit that thi? if a hard admonition to observe in rrlation to the Mexicans, ret the intrinsic difficult!?* of a successful invasion of Mexico, are not to lie unacknowledged or overlooked. They are to he found cither in a t?Mioui nnd opiiTussivc inarch, longer than that of Napoleon from the frontiers o' Franco to Moscow, or tin expensive nnd hazardous transport of troopson the gtilplt, to *av nothing ef the task of subjugating eight millions nt people irrevocably aepnrated from our race by a difference of language, mmplcxion and religion, fortified by the strongest national prejudices nnd antipathies. C onquest under these circumstances, it must be admitted, would require money, copious magazines of provisions ond ammunition, a largo b'.ggage train and the occupation of a succession of post* fodecting and covering your advance into the heart of an cr.c-ny'scoiintrv, presenting many geographical as well as statistical features of perplexity nnd annoyance. If it is treason to the cause of Texas not to desire a second Santa Fa expedition on a larger scale, then I am willing to plead guilty to the charge, and to admit that 1 prefer the more useful and simple epie of the battle of Han Jacinto on her own territory. Her true policy in her present jiosition, is to hazard nothing, to staud last and meet the invaders, (if they come,) with the unerring certainty with which an American rifle sends forth its messenger of death. I em also free to confess, that 1 do not desire to see the cause of Texas weakened in the L'nitod States, or in Eu- j rope, by an absurd and abortive cflort to secure her an- I notation to this Union. What man, in his senses, can , I relieve, when the Constitution cf the United States requires, under the treaty-making power, the concurrence ! of two-thirds of the State* in tue Confederacy to such a measure, that it can be accomplished 7 or that the effort in Congress would he attended by any other consequence than a convulsive agitation throughout this country of a most painful and portentous character? An agitation, however disastrous to ourselves, yet move prejudicial to Texas I In the mean time, the standing she holds would be impaired in the estimation of the great powcrsofF.itrope who have recognized her independence, and the adlMi otion so recently entertained for her valor and en'erprizc would !* turned into contempt for her imlrccility and weakness. The only probable affect of such an act of fatuity w on Id lie to driveOruat Britain into an alliance with Mexico, for which, I know she has no natural or desired sympathy whatsoever. No, Texas his commenced her destiny as an in dependent power, and she must work out her salvation by the ploughshare and the sword. Her t< rritory, lor its superficial extent, comprehends the finest, most fertile and most beautiful portion ot the ham. i table globe. On this territory, her people, small as may be their numbers, arc invincible. They are growing in hrir infancy like Hereulca apace, and like ,VI*1 . i a <l,. .M-wonii thnt rnil .irniin tnur rrn siritngif pre pnj m? ??-. -- lie.

The ground chosen by the parties was tlie old Duelling (Iround, back of the U. Naval Hospital, near Portsmouth, Va. Distance, fifteen paces?weapons, pistols?result, the first round midshipman Waring, the challenged party, lodged a ball in the hip of his antagonist, which lam credibly informed tlie surgeon says cannot be extracted : therefore his ense ts a critical one. Midshipman Waring is on hoard the Pennsylvania at the present writing, but will probably be arrested by the civil authority ere night. I have not as yet been able to learn the names of tlie seconds, but you shall hear more anon from n Jack Tar. Philadelphia. [Correspondence of the Herald.] Purr-ADEM-HM, May 30, 1842. J-iMKaGornox Bennett:? Dear Sir :? I have every disposition to give your Philadelphia correspondent credit for the manner and alacrity with whicli he furnishes you items of what transpiresin this city front day today ; but within the last week I have noticed on more than one occasion, statements essentially incorrect in every particular, and which I consider in justice to the parties concerned, should he properly explained. In his letter of the 27th instant, he states that the hearing of the accusations against our Postmaster were being conducted nt the time of the arrival of the Hon. Mr. Wickliffe, the Postmaster General; and in the hearing nothing was elicited to criminate the Postmaster, and in the course of the examination some dismissed clerks were heard, and also prophecies that the matter will end where it begin, (or to use a previous expression in a former letter) in smoke. In all this statement there is not one particle of truth. The post office department, as I am informed, and have seen the authority for such information, have ordered depositions to be taken before Richard Vhux, Esq., Hceorder of the city, to prove any official misconduct in the said Postmaster. The"commencement of the proceeding, therefore, took place on Thiir-day last, ot 4 I'. M.; and if your correspondent had been present, as 1 mysell was. lie would have been far from inditing such an epistle as that in his letter of the 27th, for in place of any dismissed clerks being examined, hut one witness, Mr. Win. A. lludd, a broker of South Third street, was the only witness called up. and he fully testified to the fact of a letter of his having been detained at leust one. if noi two mails, by the negligence of the postmaster. Gen. Montgomery ap|K'ared in person, uud with counsel, and the complainants in the matter, or the government who ordered this examination, were represented by R It. Pqdson. Esq. So much for the letter of the 27lh._ In his letter of the 28th, speaking of the _cn?e of Col. Monroe Edwards, lie state.tliat a special agent from the court had been sent on here, to examine the trunk now in possession of the I ltunk of North America, which trunk was found to contain 5j>H0,lKJ0 in gold and Treasury notes. | In this statement as in th other, nothing 14 more incorrect. I lie trunk in question is not in the possession of the Bank of North America farther than for safe keeping, where it war placed by flic Recorder of the city, and is subject to his control and direction?neither docs it contain Treasury notes, the notes being principally on the New York and southern banks ; and to wind up the matter, no special agent of the Rank was sent to this city for the purpose, nor was the trunk opened in the presence of any others than two personal friends of the Recorder, and one of the officers of the liank. Thus much for letter writing, and the truth of your correspondent's remarks. To all these facts I was an eye witness, and consider it but justice to the parties interested, and with u view to the better regulation of your correspondent hereafter, thut a correct statement should ne made of the matter. We have to-day a precarious state in the weather, alternate sunshine and shower. This afternoon our streets are enlivened with the music of the drum and life several of our military companies being on parade for review and inspection. Among litem I notice the Washington Bines, Marion Light Infantry, Hibernian Greens, and National Greys, and others. Washington Taylor, the prince of counterfeiters, wns brought up before Judge King this rooming on a writ of habeas corpus, hut again remanded to prison in consequence of the absence from our city of some material evidence.

Arotmeb Sneior.?A young man named Cornelius Burns, a tailor by trade, committed suicide by cutting his throat on Monday evening, at the house of Reuben 8. Mnrsland, 49 Canal street, with whom he was engaged as a journeyman. He had been complaining of depressed spirits for several days past, and is supposed to have committed the act while in a state of partial insanity. Being missing from his father's house at a late hour on Monday evening, search was made for him, and kis dead body fonad in the oock loft of Mr. Maryland's premises, his throat cut and the razor with which he performed the act still grasped in his linnd, Hs had remained out the Sun. day night previous, and on being questioned the next morning, said ho had been taking n walk. The Coronor held an inquest on the body. Mail Robbery.?A letter containing about two hundred dollars, intended for a town in Greene county, was recent ly ascertained to bn missing, and suspicion became attachrd to Benjamin Demysc, I'ostmaster at South Durham, near Catskill. On enquiry it was discovered that he had pnid out some money which was known to have been in the letter. A warrant was yesterday issued from the United States Court for his apprehension, and he will be brought to town, probably, in the course of to-day. The penalty if he is proved to be guilty, will be from 10 to SI years In the Stale Prison. Dzatii rsoM wart or Medical Aid.?Scarcely a day passes that the Coroner of our city is not called to hold an inquest on persons who have died from want of medical attendance and improper treatment. This is certainly strange, when we consider the number of dispensaries and physicians in this city, whose duty it is to take care of sick nnd helpless j>oor. Let a mnn get himself into a scrnpo of nny kind, or endeavor to ge1 another into one, nnd there is no lack of lawyer* to aid him ; but if a poor devil is keeled up for want of medicine and a physician, he must die before aid can be obtained. This is a oncer world, and we area queer people. Yesterday the Coronet held an inquest on the body of Benjamin Albert, a Gorman, aged about 45 yours, who died at 189 Division street, the day previous, from inflammation of the lung*. lie Having no cuicior, no meuiuine, nor no rrmiorniTo ?iu to save him.
