THE NEW YORK HERALD. Vol. X., Ao. M5U?WUola No. 38SO. NEW YORK. TUESDAY MORNING. SEPTEMBER 17. 1844. Prlet Two Contt* Another Inciter from til* Old Man of the Hermitage?A. Settler fur the Opponent* of Anutistiou, Hkemitaqk, August 28, 1844. Dkas Sir?I am in possession of your note of tbc 27tti inst., arid although greatly enfeebled by the exclusive warm weather of this month, shall en deavor to reply to it. The more 1 have reflected on the policy of an nexing Texas to the United States, the more deci ded is my conviction, that since the establishment of the Federal Constitution, no question has arisen of so great importance to the welfare and safety of tbc people of the United States. It seeius to me that in ihis instance, as ia the revolution and ou' last war with Great Britain, kind Providence still interposes to help on our efforts in the cause of seti goverament, and to give us the necessary guaranty tor our independence. Under Hie treaty ofl808, by which Mr. Jeffeison obtained Louisiana from France, the people of that country acquired the right to incorporation in our Union as ample and complete as that possessed by tbe original States and their territories, and all the corresponding rights of citizenship and protection. In the treaty , therefore, of 1810, by which the peo ple ot Louisiana, west of the Sabine, ware depri ved of the guarantees of the treaty ot 1803, a seri ous question arises whether this government can dismember its territory and disfranchise i>s citizens without their consent, and, in the case of Texas, without the consent ot France. But leaving out of view this solemn question, and looking on'y at the consequences which have followed the treaty of 1819, it is Mrondertul that the course of events is such us to enable us to repair the errors of that treaty, at the same time that we avoid doing wrong to other powers, either on this or the continent of Europe. The people of Texas have maintained their sepa rate existence, and after years ot battle and toil, have achieved their freedom and independence; aud without a stain on their character, without violating obligations with Mexico or other foreign powers, with no restraint on their sovereignty other than that which has been imposed by their God, they again come back to us, and tell us that although the guarantees of the treaty of 1803 have been withdrawn from thein, they are yet willing to embrace them. And the question is, what shall we say to them in reply 1 liut before answering this question, let us see if Mexico has any ri#ht to the territory of Texas, or any cause for resisting the extension to the citizens of Texas of the guarantees of citizenship as intend ed in the treaty of 1803. When did Mexico ac quire any title to the territory of Texas 1 The title of France was conveyed to us, and that title was then tecognized by all the civilized world as the only good one. Did we convey it to Mexico 1 We did not. We conveyed it to Old Spain, and she did not convey it to Mexico, How then, does Mexico derive her title 1 She pretends to none except what results from the confederation which was formed in 1824, und founded on revolution, in which compact Texas expressly stipulated that her o arate sovereignty was retained. The overthrow of that confederation or compact by military force gives Mexico no title to tbe territory, unless she can show that she has conquered one?and it we exanuue the claim on the score of conquest, it is notoriously unjust. That claim was silenced by the battle ot San Jaci .to; after which event the principal powers of the world recognized Texas as an independent state. There is, then, no reason for the opposition now made by Mexico to the an nexation of Texas to the United States?none louuded on any just claim to tbe territory or the loyaity of the citizens of Texas. We are then brought to the unembarrassed ques tion ; is it right for us to possess Texas on the rea sonable terms proposed by her 1 Is it a step neces sary to our safety and prosperity! I say it is, and as you have requested my reasons, I will briefly state them. That territory is represented by Mr. Thompson, and other gentlemen of character, who have the means of judging correctly, as possessing some of the finest, lands in the world. In soil, climate and productions, it is said to surpass the Floririas, and to equ >.1 L'.niaiiina and Mississippi. Ah a jionion of ourcoultdeiacy, tiien, will it not benefit us in the tamii niitij"tr -hat the States just mentioned and the outer new ?Suites have done 1 Have net these States contributed to the wealth, safety and prosperity of the other portions ot the confederacy"! ii-tve they not furnished homes for thousands and thousands ot happy and tree people, engaged in the noble pursuit of agriculture, and have not the products ol this agriculture, exchanged in our own tfud foreign markets, given healthtul employment to our manufacturing aud navigating interests, and to the various mechanical arts ! Unless the mea sure of our prosperity is different from ihat which is applicable to ail omer nations, it is imjaissible to resist the conclusion, that it will be promoted by the annexation ot Texas. The conclusion I deem se t-evideut. But great as are the advantages ot annexation in th? encouragement which wilt result to onr indus trial pursuits?advantages in which all sections of the Luton will participate?they are not so impor tant as the security which Texas, in a military point of view, otfois us. It is in this aspect cf the question that 1 shudder when 1 look at the course ot the newspaper press opposed to annexation, and read the speeches of many public men?who, ab sorbed in the effort to make a President, seem to care nothing for the intrigues of Great Britain to defeat our true policy. We have labored many years to free the States composing our Uuion of the Indian population wiihin our limits, and may be said to have jusi succeeded in the accomplishment ot this humane policy. These Indians are now placed on our west ern frontier, and in a territory tavorable to their gradual civilization acd protection, against the in trusion ot influences hostile to them and to us. At present they are not accessible to British influence, except on the northern boundary line. Is it not ap parent, however, that the whole of our policy, tn respect to their civilization, will be thwarted if any power acquires control over Texas 1 The line be tween Texasand these Indians extends some thou sands of miles, and communicates with Oregon in the most direct and practicable route to the great river of that territory. Texas, therefore, in hostile hands, could feed and sustain an army that could not only act against Oregon, but at the same time act agaiust Louisiana and Arkansas, and by con junction with the Indians, could make inroads on every western State to the lakes. An army thus employed,* seconded by a proper organization ot force on the lakes, would put the whole west in a blaze, and cause us more nijury in blood and mo ney in six months than years of peace could atone for. The sagacious statesmen of Enxland understand much better khan we do the force of the military considerations I am here suggesting; and hence, you will find that no pecuniary obligation will be deemed by them too great to prevent the annexa* tton to this country. The success of our free sys tem, its capacity to secure order, to promote the probers ot the arts and sciences, and to stimulate the energies of our nature to a point tar higher than any yet attained under the forms of govern ment in the old world, is alarming to the advocates of monarchy. The further progress of our principles will be a demonstration which the popu lar initid throughout the world cannot mistake, and opposition to these principles is therefore a neces Hirv part of European policy; and it would be as short sighted tor us to take tor granted that a diffe rent feeling will control their policy, as it would be for cue of our navigators to embark ?n the ocean without chait or needle, to aid him in weathering storms and preventing shipwreck. So settled do I consider this antagonistic feature of monarchy and republicanism, in the present state ot the world, that I could feel sate in inferring that our course ought to be in reference to this measure of such vital national interest, by finding out what was the course of Great Britain. Her position here, as it has been generally heretofore, will be found to be directly opposite to ours. Rut why should I preiss upon you further views of the paramount importance ?t Texas to the United States on the score ot safety! Every mind conver sant with the opeiationsof war,and with the causes which give military ascendancy, must eee from a glance at our map, that such a genius as Wellington's or N apoleoo's, sustained by naval armaments on the Gulf of Mexico, and on the lakes, and in posaession of Texas, with a very small force on land, could, in one campaign, paralyze one half of our Union, de prive us of Oregon, and produce scenes of servile insuimotion and massacre, that humanity would shudder to describe. This is no fancy sketch?no chimera of the nnaginatian, to frighten women and children. It is the natural operation of cause and eff ci? inevitable and irresistible. Give Texas and Oregon to Great Britain, and she will nave more territory on this continent than the United States She willsurround us from ournorth east corner to ?ur southeast corner. Leaving no outlet to us fey land, we shall be literally braced in her potent grasp, and open to her invasion by sea and land, at every poiut ot the Union. And yet we are told by leading politicians of the day, that the project of annexation is a mere bub ble, blown for a political purpose, to put down one leader und to put up another; and this tso on the face of assurances ttuU reach us every day?which tells us that England holds in her hands a guaran tee of |*aca io Texas, ii ?he will only withdraw the proposition ot Union with ua. I am proud to see that mv frieuds throughout the Union are treat irg these foreign menaces aa American patriots should who love their country, and are determined to staud.by it ia alt emeigenciea, without regard to party. Let ua next too, in answer to your third, fourth and tilth inquiries, what would be the probable ef fect ot the determination of Texas to accept the guarantee of monarchist powers. A treaty ot com merce would be the first result, and the basis ot this treaty would be one of reciprocal benefit^ and in the exchange ot the raw productions ot Texas for the manurfdctnred articles of those powers. England would uim at once to destroy the manu facturing interest of thia country in competitioa with her; to do this, she would be the gainer by i opening her ports to Texas; and Texas iu her turn, that anxious lor the payment of her national debt, would so adjust her revenue laws as to give the greatest possible stimulus to the culture of uer cot ion and tobacco, and the development of all her agricultural resources. Thus her debt would soon be paid, and her prosperity would then be accele rated by the double torce of European aid and do mastic pride?unembarrassed on the one hand by high duties,upheld onjihe other by the deep-seated determination of the European powers to cripple the United Stales and scatter among idem the seeds of discord and jealousy. Among other disadvantages resulting to us Irom such a treaty between England and Texas, would be the necessity to establish, on that exteusive fron tier, such police as would prevent smuggling and entorce our revenue laws. Could this be donel All experience answers, no?it cannot be done. Border citizens, having the same interests in trade, following the same pursuits, using the same inland streams tor the transportation of their surplus labor, will not submit to the operation of unequal laws. The cotton planter on the south western boundary, within the United Slates, will not contribute to the enforcement of the lawB, the e fleet efwhich makes his labor leas profitable than that ot his neighbor in Texas t and what is true of cotton will be true ot all other agricultural products. We know that at present, in the United States, the force ot this principle issostroug as to compel us to put low duties on many articles which would be otherwise heavily taxed. I know that many of our citizens suppose that the annexation of Texas will be injurious because it will add to the quantity of valuable lands in the market, and may be the means of inducing the re moval of many of our slaves to that favored region. I grant that this is true to some extent; but dors it not increase the arguments in lavor of annexation 1 If Texas has aa advantage in cheapness ot land, salubrity of climate and convenience of navigation, over our Southern States, is it not better tor the citizens ot the United States to possess this advan tage than surrender .t to the citizens of Europe ! in the hands of Great Britain this advantage will be improved, as we have seen to break up our man ufactures, and lessen our capacity to compete with her in the supply ot other markets, aud in the car rying trade. In other words, will not Texas, out of our Union be a more formidable competitor than she would be in it 1 The iron and coal re gions of Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Kentucky, and Tennessee, or it she <s in the Union, will find a market there?so will the Lowell and other cot ton manufactures ot the North Atlantic side of our Union. The imeiiBe power ot our inland trade, the nursery of oiu seamen, and the source of so much wealth, will find employment in Texas, if she, is in the l/mon. if she is out ot the Union, British policy may monopolise all these advantages. We are also told by some whoi rotessto speak on behalt of the sugar planters in Louisiana, that Texas must not come luto the Union, for, if she does, their landB are made less valuable, and the price ot su gar will fall, if the tact were so, does it follow that an argument is thereby afforded tor the rejection of Texas'! This would only prove to the vasi number of the consumers of sugar that Texas ought to be added to llie Union. But is it probable that the price ot sugar would falll We know that the production of .Louisiana is now so limited, that the large protective ciuty extended u> it has, thus iar, not diminished ih?* revenue troin tiiio article ; and we al>w> know, that the lands ot Texas could not be brought into cultivation tor many yrais. So that the probability ic, that sugar, iu Texas, would stanu ou ttie same tooling with cotton and other agricul tural productions, far more advantageous to the United States it in liie Union than out ot it. but were it otherwise, 1 teet confident that the sugar planters ot Louisiana will repel the imputation that, ou account oi a possible competitor being raised up in Texas, they are willing to see that tair country pass into tne hands ot England. The su gar planter wains security tor his negro property, stability tor Uie Uni n, und independence tor his whole country. To gtu:* tins, he will maive the same sacrifice, if necessary, that the other great interests v ould make. But fortunately, no sicri ncea are necees&ry, according to my view of the subject. All the interests and all the sections ot our Union, instead ot having sacrifices to make, will only have benefits to ti'joy. There are many other aspects in which it can be made iiiaiutcsi that England will injure the United States it it is rejected. But they are to* obvious to bring to yourjnolice. Take Uio?e already noted? take the question as it stands?the iadisposmon of the United States to profit by \hem is the most re in *rkable event that has occurred in history. No nation, under similar circumstances, has commit ted such error ft there be patriotism >n ihe effort to increase the wealth and happiness of all classes in our society?to diffuse the blessings ot equal laws, and n jusi government?if there be love in Ihe spirit which fiods in this free land ot ours the means to spread the light of the gospal, and to teach fallen man throughout the world how he may re cover his right to civil and religious liberty?it 1 seems to me that all this patriotism?all this phi lanthropy?all this religion?appeals to ua in favor of the addition of Texas to our Union. But it has been asked, not by you, but by others, if these cogent reasons exist, why did they not in fluence me when I was President 1 My answer is, that at that time the people of Texas had existed as a separate sovereignty but a few months before the close of my administration, and were then at war with Mexico, not claiming the benefits of the treaty of 1808, and not objecting to the cesaion of the Territory to old Spain in 1819. The Inde pendence ot Texas was recognized the last day of my administration. I was not re sponsible for the policy which dismembered that territory, and had no power to remedy the conse quences ot that dismemberment. It wss my duty to be juht to both Mexico and Texaa, and keep the United Statea from becoming a party to their quar rel. This duty was faithfully performed. No inter ierence on the part of thia Government was en couraged or countenanced. The brave Texas troops acting for themselves, terminated at St. Jacinto their contest for liberty, and then aettled their trie and claim to independence. From that period to this our relations to them have been changed, and the question of the proposed connection with them has now ceased to be embarrassed by the de signs or expectations of Mexico. The dismemberment ot our territory in 1819, by the failure to execute the guaranty to ihe treaty ot 1H03, has but recently attracted public attention ? But it has been silently operating, and is now exer cising a great and momentous influence on oursys tein of government. It has been thus with most ot the causes that have produced changes in hu man nfUirs?unlorseen?perhaps hardly noticed in the beginning?but not the less potent in the result after the lapse of time when connected with a vital principle. May we not trust that this miatake ot our Statejmen in 1819, has been ordered by a wise pro vidence, as a lesson for us never hereafter to dis member any portion of our Territory, or permit, under any circumstances, a foreign power to ac quire a foothold on our tree soil. I have thus, my friend, delineated as rapidly and truly as I could, the views I take ot the question of annexation. I shall probably not be alive to wit ness the consummation of any of my anticipations, but 1 have the consolation of knowing that 1 have contributed what 1 could to guard my country against the danger of yielding to the policy aimed at by Great Britain. I remain, .. ^ggS/'i'^SON.

This man was a servant, it adds, ot General Capar, and, ot course, it the General is obnoxious to the powers that be, he will be placed under arrest, kept 111 close solitary confinement tor a week or two, and then like M- Cordtro and others, liberated with the assurance that there has been some mistake.
