NEW YORK HERALD. Wcw If ark, Bandar, March 913, IMA. 'Mm Important Intelligence from Texas? Hostility of the Government to Antivxn tlou. We give, in another column, lute and highly important intelligence from Texas, from which it would appear that annexation is aa farofl as ever. Ttie organ of the government-the National Reg "ter~'?? " will be aeen, exceedingly bitter and de termined in ifa expression of hostility to the House resolutions, and it is quite apparent that so far as the Executive of Texaa is concerned, the terms ollerc d by the Congress of the United States, will be re jected with the utmost scorn. We are strongly inclined to believe that the article in the Regiitcr was written by President Jones himself. It 13 coached |in his style, and there fcan be no doubt that it expresses his sentiments. How the mass of the people are disposed to treat the matter remains to be seen ; but whatever the decision of the popu lur will may be, the completion of the measure may be now regarded as indefinitely postponed. It will be recollected that fimmediately on the passage of the resolution leaving to the President thechoibe of the alternatives, the House Resolu tions, as they are called, being the one, and Mr Benton s bill the other, Mr. Tyler selected the for mer, which it now appears was the most unpay able to Texas. What is the naturol inference il the Executive of Texas refuses to annex on these terms? Why, another protracted appeal to the people, and the probability is, that the influence of the government, and various other interests, may j l?e able to defeat the project altogether. There certainly cannot be any doubt that the resolutions are less favorable to Texas than the treaty rejected by the Senate, and contemplated by Mr. Benton's resolutions, which were to negotiate on the same principles. And it was very well known at the tune, in well-informed quarters, that the leeling in . exaswas likely to run counter to th? resolutions selected by Mr. Tyler. It would appear, therefore, that Mr. Tyler ami Mr. Calhoun, in selecting that alternative, had some inkling, probably through Duff Green, that such a proposition would he negatived by the government of Texas, and was not ltkely to please the people, and that by selecting it the whole annexation ques tion would be again thrown before the people, in our elections throughout the country, and that thus the question would remain as Hnsettled as ever - The conduct of Mr. Tyler, and the hasty manner in which he despatched his messenger to the govern ment of Texas, after selecting the worst and most unpalatable resolutions, would thus seem to imply that he did not wish to see the question settled, anri desired to take it out of the hands of Mr. Polk al together, leaving it to popular discussion.for future direction. It would appear, from a recent vote in secret ses sion of the Senate, made public the other day, thai the President is prohibited from selecting any other mode of annexation, so that in every point of view and on all hands, the question is afloat again.?' hen we take all this into consideration?th< movements in South Carolina hostile to Mr. Polk? the determination of the whig party to Resist an nexatton to the latest gasp-and various other mat ters; we are vety much inclined to bf lieve that an nexation is as far off as ever, and that the battle must be fought over again. Trial of the Anti-Renters. In this day's, aper will he found an ample report e proceedings in the case of the unti rem I roe- t<) gjx O.c|ock on priday eveniri? 2 ,he Court a(Wr.ed, to meet again' ' ?t H o'clock. This step was taken 'ii the consent of counsel on both sides, on the '""??IMiod of the Judges, after the sue ? e-lul termination of three day's labor to procure ? jury, in consideration of whom, as well as of the ends of justice, it was thought desirable to com mcnee at a period which would admit of a con tinuous and uninterrupted prosecution of the trials it was, therefore, judged better, in view of the customary adjournment on Saturday at noon, not to begin the business on Priday evening. It will be seen, on reading the report, that jurors underwent a searching examinution, to ascertain their fitness; and, perhaps, nothing but the nature of the case would justify such an unsparing use of time. Be this as it may, a jury isnow empaniiel'ed, to the agreeablesurprize of all concerned hut them selves, who, before they get hall through, will be pretty well wearied. The proceedings will be pro tracted, but, owing to the interest generally taken in them, we will publish in the Herald, from day to day, an exact and graphic report of the entire in vestigations. The Pennsylvania Clmgy?We commence to-day a series of articles, giving a very interesting biographical sketch of the Episcopal clergymen of Pennsylvania, and particularly of Philadelphia. hey come from a highly distinguished and re spectable clergyman of Pennsylvania, whose ac quaintance with the subject is extended and accu rate, and who writes with great trnth and probity hese sketches become very interesting from the circumstance,that in a short time, a new B.shnp will have to be elected outjof the same body for that dio oese. Who the principal candidates are, we have no means of knowing, hut it is very certain that there will be an immense deal of excitement in the diocese of Pennsylvania, attendant on the election of a Bishop to supply the place *f one o! the Under donks, as there will.also be in this diocese to sup Ply the place of the other Onderdonk.when it is as certained that' the church of New York is without a Bishop. Massachusetts U. S. Senator ?The Hon. John Davis, is the whig, and the Hon. Fred. Ro binson, the democratic candidates for the United States Senate, to supply the place vacated by the death of the Hon. Isaac C. Dates. They are the caucus candidates of the Legislature. Movements of Travellers ?The arrivals yes terday, as is usually the case on Saturday, were not very numerous. At the " Astor," however, are the Hon. Daniel Webster; Hon. George Evans, of Maine; Col Vortz, Philadelphia; Colonel Mather, President of the Slate Bank of Illinois; Judge Speaker, Canajoharie ; Gov. Woodbridge, Detroit; Gen. Lewis Eaton; J P.

H.C Ellis ; Mr.Green, British Army. At the "American," Hon. Levi Wood bury, New Hamiwhire. Trade with Brazil.?As an instance of the in creasing trade with the Empire of Brazil w.- will mention that no less than live square rigged vessels sailed yesterday from this port for Rio de Janeiro One steamer, to be used, we believe, in the Ama zon, was among the number. Mary Booine ?A jury have at last been pworn, Bo that the trial will commence on Monday at 10^ o'clock. Justice Haskell.?It will t>e seen, on reference to our Law Reports, that this gentleman will be re moved. Fire ?The alarm of fire, at 10 o'clock yesterday ?Horning, proceeded from the brig Mary H.

MarcK li. Highly liHportNMt from Wtikl I.nter?Probable RifUUl of that Republic to Annex. The steamship New York, arrived at New Op leans ou the 13th with advices from Galveston to the 8th inst. inclusive. The advices, in an annexation point of view, are very important. There is an evident determination on the part of Texas to refuse to accept the plan of union to the United States as offered by Congress. It is stated that the British Charge" has obtained a pledge from Ex-President Houston to exert himself to the ut most to prevent annexation." And Presiden1 Jones has already nearly committed himself to the same end. Subjoined is the news [Correspondence of the N. Y. Herald.] Galveston, Texas, March 4, 1845. Dear Sir:?We have all, in thissectionol coun try, been looking with considerable anxiety for your journal, to see what opinion you may have tormed relative to the recent discomfiture of the ?'Warwick of the Democracy," as he is termed here, God save the mark, but it appears that you have not either deemed it necessary to expend your shot on him, or, that.being without the proner in ' "s te hi """ formation, you did not think it advisuble te hazard conjecture. The advent of Dull' Gieen, in this country, was peculiarly auspicious. His arrival was heralded in a long article in the Telegraph, of Houston, enti tled the "Warwick of the Democracy," which, it is shrewdly conjectured, was written by himself. He arrived at Galveston and created a good deal of ex citement by giving out that he wus <?? route for Mex ico, io wuteh the movements of that Government, by authority, lie returned with a batch ot informs lion of ull kindsbringing, at the same time, the correspondence between Shannon and Rejon,? winked slyly, put his fingers to his nose, and spoke knowingly of matters supposed to be going on in Mexico,?insinuated very gently that he had given Mr. Shannon immortality by writing the diplo matic despatches,?talked ot his connection with Mr. Calhoun,?spoke of the distinguished South erner mentioned in Mr. Tyler'B missage to the Senate, whichlfirst put him on his guard with regard to the designs ot Britain on Texas and abolition,? and, in short, he very meekly, by "insinuation," claimed to have set the annexation ball in motion; winch, too, was to make Texas sreat, Polk, Presi dent, and he, Dufi Gteen, marveUout On his arri val at Washiiigtonlhe look a suite of rooms, (for privacy,)?[your Minister hoarded and lodged in a room witu a dozen at the same time,]?and com menced his practice as adviser-deueral to the na tion,?proposed that the whole tariff regulations should be changed,?proved it by certain funda mental principles, the gist ot which was, that they, if adopted, would throw the North into a lever for annexation?throw Mr. Polk into the hands of Mr. Calhoun, and finally, make him, C , President.? All these doings, it now appears, was only prelimi nary to his'grand debut, which came ofl shortly after, as lollows:?He proposed to Dr. Jones, Presi dent, to sign or recommend a bill for frontier proiection, which was to be done, without cost to Texas, as follows: General Green and his as sociates were to be incorporated into a company, with power to levy war on Mexico, to conquer and aunex territory, and to pay the expenses of the war wnh the spoils. To do this they were to have the privilege of inducii g some (>0,000 Northern Indians to migrate to Texas, to be placed under the control of the company, to carry on the war with, tec. The President, being a reasonable man, gently ob jected to this wholesale annexation of the wrong aide of the Rio, and perhap.' said so. The General quite us politely insinuated to him, that if he did not sign such a lull when passed, that he would make his seat anything other than one of roses?in fact, that he would revolutionize the country. The result wus that he was ordered out of presence, and proclaimed as you have seen. So ended the matter. The General, however, is not satisfied?he has sworn the oatli of allegiance, and sworn likewise that he would be in the next Congress,tec. To this I end he has taken up his domicil in one of our de populated counties, gone into a mercantile busi ue-s, thai is, trade with Mexico, alias smuggling, and will have, I doubt not, the honor ot being an M. C. from San Patricio next session. I intend to look alter him occasionally, and let you kuow his whereabouts, and what he is at. There is no news here. The people are opposed to the btil of annexation, and the opposition is gain ing ground. A fair treaty, us a State, assuming our public debt, tec , would be accepted almost unanimously, but they do not like this mongrel an nexation. Yours, truly, Ab,models. [rrom N O.

(From thf Galveston Weekly News.) We have already furnished inconte?tible evidence that the British policy in opposition to annexation has so fat succeeded, that her B-itaunic Mitjesiy's Minister has obtained the pledge of President Houston, to use his best endeavors to defeat that measure. We are told, that upon condition ol our renouncing the American Union lorever, the Monorchia! powers Ol Europe will then teiminate our formidable war with Mexico, "forthwith and compulsively." The same friendly promiso has been made, trom time to time, tor the last *? ven or eight years, and its repetition, just at this particular crisis, when the speedy success ot annexe tion is, beyond all reaeonable doubt, is exceedingly well timed in order to create a reaction In the public feeling ol this country. Wo are not (told whether this friendly mediation is again to be attended by another "Armistice" as a necessary preliminary step, lobe afterwards "im Eioved into one ol more convenient duration." We are, owever, assured that " France and England will openly submit to the consideration of our government and people, inducemeotii for us to remain independent." Such in formation as thia is usually confined to the chief agents of goveninaentjas a matter ol State secrecy, and is rarely furnished to the public journals except for the purpose tl political influence and foreign counteraction This an uouncemcnt is inado in the positive and unqualified terms of a negociator, who has participsted in all the cabinet secrets and intrigues of both hemispheres. 1 The public need uot be surprised should this singular manitesto prove to be the harbinger of party organization, and of great exeitions In thia country, to counteract the labors of our friends in the United States and to defeat this great measure here, after it has triumphed there ? "We shall see." We find the following extract from the National Rtgis tir in the Civilian: ? " The removal ol this duty on cotton, will enable the Biitish government to throw vast commercial advantages into the hands of the merchants and planters of Texas.? We havo every reason to believe that if we concludo to remain independent, this duty will be removed from all Texas cotton introduced into Eng i-h ports, while it will he retained upon that produced in the U. States. Under this discrimination in our favor, may be also embraced sugar and tobacco. la this way our rivalship with the Vni'ed Stat is will be almost instantly established. These great advantages could not fall to attract hither the planting capital of the Southern States; for under such an arrangement they would gain by the changH an in crease ot profits of not less than forty per cent per an num. The Civilian of the 8th has the following paragraph in relation to the export trade in provisions, iz. We still look, with great confilence, for the period when a highly important and lucrative trade will te done in the exportation ot many articles from Texas, which have rot hitherto come into the account of the foreign trade of the country. Within the last year important ad vances have been made, and there is a good prospect that thiy will coutinue until the many important but dor mant resources, which are capable of making Texas the most prosperous country on the globe, are developed. The nme paper referring to the fact that the trade be tween Galveston and Havana is beginning to attract at ten tion, and the prospect that it will ultimately become Of great importance, publishes a list of the rates and charges for commisiion-&c., on purchases, sales, Sic., in Havana. The same paper of the 1st instant, has the following paragraph in relation to Gen. Duff Oreen's misunder standing with the Texian President. It seems from this that the affair has not been settled, as stated We observe a statement in some of the United States papers that the matter between the President of Texas and Gen. Duff Green, which led to the revocatien of the exequatureot the latter, haa been "settled,"' and the in ference is left that an amicable adjustment has been made ol the whole affair, to the aatjsfaction of the President ? We are informed that no adjustment of any kind, further than appears from the proclamation, has ever been nude o( the matter, unless a remark of the President that he re gretted the necessity which compelled him to take the course he did may hefso considered. Neither he nor his friends believe that the proclamation was predicated up: on any misapprehension or insufficient cause whatever The American Minister, we have understood, entertains similar views. From tub North?We have received by Liv ingston & To. our Montreal, Buffalo and Albany advices. We annex the news : ? Buffalo, March 20 ?Tho prospect for navigation is not a w hit more promising now than it was a month since There has been two heavy snow storms, und intensely cold weather, recioting the creek and bringing in accu mulation of ice from the upper end ot the lake in such quantities as to close up the mouth of the harbor and pre vent the steamers from entering. Tho boat which left here on the 10th, returned on the 18th, hut instead of fore ing a passage through the ice, landed her passengers at Point Alhiuo, 17 miles distant in Canada. A couple of other steamers put into Dunkirk, from whence their pas sengers came, in stages. About one hundred western merchants took the cars for Albany yesterday, and arc now probably conning over samples in your place or Boston. As to lake navigation, I concur in my previous opinion, that an unobstructed harbor may he expected here about the beginning ol April. New York Legislature?Albany, March 21? Railway projects continue to occupy a prominent place in the legislation of the State. The Erie railway has probably acquired the votes of the entire delegation from Orange count> , consent hnviDg been obtained to the constiuction ol a railway from Goshen to Newburgh. The Commercial Bank of Albany has an application be fore the Legislature for an extension of its charter for a term of twenty years. This bank's charter contained the personal liability clause, and on that account may find la vorw.ththe Legislature, although the renewal of the charter of any incorporated bank is opposed to what is considered the settled policy of the Legislature Bills were reported in the House to-day to incorporati the New York Philharmonic Society; 'o amend and con dense the several acts relating to Brooklyn city; toincor porato the Canandaigua and Corning railway company ? This last is the first ot a series of bills by which it is pro |jo*rd to tap tho New York and Erie railway running The Albany bridge bill, if it is ever to come, lingers long in the hands of the committee. It was to be in or. Tuesday?then it was certain for Wednesday ; hut both days have passed over, and Friday also, and still no rt port. Will it ever be reported? "That's the question," as Mr. D. Lee says. The bill to revise and amend the chatter of tho Oswego ami Syracuse railway company passed the House to daT, with amendments fixing the maximum of passenger toll at 4 cents per mile. A motion to reconsider the vote on its final pass.iue was made by Mr. D. Lee, of Buffalo, and he farther moved to lay his motion on the table. The House refused to lay the motion on the table and refused reconsider the vote So the hill is passed. The move ment of Mr. Lee had a rquinting toward the Buffalo and Oswego contest Mr. Nixon chargrd that Mr D. Lee had le?s anxiety for tha interest of the State jthan for his cili of Buffalo. The bill lor the relief of the New York Institution for the Blind passed by a vote of 113 a yen 1 ha bill to Incorporate the Troy and Oraenbuah rail way Aieociation passed by a vote of 103 to 0.?It imposes upon the company the payment of toll on freight carried over the roud?discrimina ions to bo made on freight which would not come to the canal or on local freight The bill imposing tolls en the Troy and Schenectadr railway passed. A similar bill applied to the Mohawk and Hudson railway is on the table. The Comproller has reported, in answer to a res -lution of the House, the amount of outstanding botes issued by the banks of the State which have not beau registered.? The gross amount is $1 403,800 ; of this amount there wa in circulation, February 1st, $1,103 873, an 1 on hand, $300 733. He does not think the public interest would b< promoted by issuing registered notes for the whole or any part of such amount at this time He triuks, however, it would be safe to the bublic end just to the banks, to allow each hank, on February 1st, 1818, to credit to profit and loss an amount rqual to 30 per cent, of the non registered notes then outstanding (most of which will never be re turned, having been destroyed by fire and otherwise) and to receive from the Comptroller a like amount of re gistered notes ; one year thereafter 30 per cent of the amount in circulation might be credited in thessme man ner, and thus con'inuc the process at the cud of each year. Banks with large capitals feel littlo interest in the matter. Those which bank on their circulation are of course anxious to avail thim-elvcF of all the Comptroller will permit them to add to that circulation Same of the bauki hsve credited their account of profit and loss with an amount assumed to have bei n lost; hut the Comptroller refuses to sanction the operation unless he has evidence of the loss of the notes. The outstanding now registered no es ot the incorporated hanks arc reduced Irom $11,647, | 830 in July. 1843, to $1,101,781 in 184S In the Senate we had twj memorials from New York against the license law A bill was reported to i xtend the Harlem Railway to | Albany.
