iVEW YORK HERALD IVew York, AVtdnrMliy, Jtuir II, 1845. Our ForrlK" Helntloiw. All the respectable journals throughout the coun try, and even the government organ itself, are be ginning to admit the accuracy of the views which we have again and again presented, illustrative rf the critical condition of our foreign relations, grow lagoutof the Texas question, and the prospect ol very serious ditliculty with Mexico, that power be ing aideu and su(>ported by England and France ? The earnest and undissembied alarm with which the resectable journals to which we allude regard these matters, administers the best possible rebuke to that laxity and heedlessness, to say the least of it, which the Union has exhibited in its references to the delicate and critical questions connected with the present condition of our foreign relations. It is thus discovered that the common sense and in telligent patriotism of men of all parties, have dic tated a course very different from that lidgetty, wa vering, and uncertain one pursued by the govern ment organ. Indeed, ll would appear that the Union haa&een actuated by the desire to preserve the bal ance between the Government and its organ, so that while the President has been famousfor never open ing his li|>s on any subject connected with public af fairs, his organ has been all the time twaddling about them?hap-hazard?every, way?quite satisfied if it o.ily put forth its daily quantity of small talk. The present position of this country is rather to" important, however, to be trilled with in this man ner. Recent developments relative to the intrigues and movements connected with the Texas question, cannot be regarded without gieat anxiety, not un mingled with some alarm. This we find acknow ledged by a journal, not readily excited by political movements. We allude to the Journal of Com merce. It does not hesitate in expressing its con viction that the foreign relations of the country are just now in a very critical state, and publishes a long letter from a Washington correspondent, exhibiting a view of the present position of the Texas question, which is not by any means calculated to allay the se rious apprehensions of the future, to which the jour nal in question itself gives expression, in the re marks with which the communication is accompa nied. The writer in the Journal of Comment, lakes a very clear and correct view ol the mo tives of Texas in seeking annexation?to get rid of pecuniary embarrassment and debt, and ob tain security against Mexican invasion?and he then goes on to argue from recent developments, that Ureat Britain has been studiously seeking to con vince the people ol that republic that both these de sirable objects could be much better obtained by re taining independence and entering into a treaty with Mexico, which England and France would guaran tee. We have yet to see the measure of success with which this friendly and very disinterested movement of England has been attended, although the movements of President Jones and Dr. Aslibel Smith, together with the Convention project, evi dently designed to postpone the final settlement of the business, may help us to a tolerably just opinion on that subject. But even supposing, that in spite of all indications we have seen to the contrary, an nexation should be triumphantly achieved, the ques tion presents itself in another interesting point of view, which is thus stated by the correspondent of the paper to which we have already alluded We will now suppose that the Texas representative* shall be less subject to the influence of British gold than has been sometimes charged, no doubt unjustly, upon some of our own public men. and that the quadruple treaty may be rejected. It is still quite certain that Mex ico will not be stimulated, encouragod, aided, counte nanced by Kranee and Kngland, in the wur which she will then undoubtedly make upon us? Will she not be encouraged to believe that ere long she will receive the open and hearty co-operation of Kngland'! Neither Kng land nor F rance hare any right to interfere. Nor have they any proper or justifiable motive in interfering so far as they have done. Might is often substituted for right Again, Mexico has dispatched a force to Texas for the purpose ol making her boundary line, according to the treaty project. Tnat line is within the limits claimed by Texas. The collision between the Mexican troops and the troops of tho United States will take place before this matter is finally settled. Do you not think that Mexico in that case, is authorized to call to her aid her foreign allies 1 These questions are very natural, and suggest some not altogether uninteresting topics of reflec tion, which the Union, if it can, without any serious risk, put a temporary stop to its diarrhoea of twad dle?would do well to digest at its leisure. According to the last accounts from Texas, which our readers will find in another column, the British steamer "Eurydice," had arrived at New Orleans, with fresh despatches, and Captain Elliott is no doubt busy in his efforts to carry out their instruc tions. It is very true that attempts have been made to show by the recent conduct of President Jones, and the declarations of Sam Houston in New Orleans, that all these recent negociations between Texas and Mexico, under the management of the British commissioner, were intended to dupe the English and French governments, and to operate upon popular f?eling in this country, in order to hasten the consummation of the project of annex ation. .Such is the story told by (teneral Houston, in New Orleans, at the late public meeting in that tity. If this were true, or corroborated by cir. ?umstances, it would reflect a degree of infamy on the public men of Texas, such as to degrade them forever in the eyes of the civilizsd world. But it in now very well known that this view of their conduct lsutterly untrue?that both Jones and Houston have been endeavoring to get up these negotiations, and to delay and prevent annexation for cerlain purposes ?and thin they have now adopted this new mode of explaining their recent condncl, in consequence of the popular feeling in Texas in favor of annexation. All these events and developments, and singular iatTigues, now coming forth each day into a clearer and more intelligible light, only evince the intense unxiety existing in France and England, with regard to this Texas*question, und tend to convince us more and more that our foreign relations are in a most critical condition. The news taken out by the next steamer that leaves our shores, will tend to excite still more thai feeling of hostility to this republic, which already pervades, so extensively, the privi leged classes of Europe. Wc allude to the receni intelligence from California, and the accomplishment of a local revolution in that region. Indeed, the an nexuiion of Texas, aa we so repeatedly insisted, is but the beginning of a movement that will end?no, not rnd, but merge?in the annexation of California. Almost all those numerous bands of emigrants that are starting from St. Louis for Oregon, are diverging from thut route, and wending their way to the fertile and beautiful regions of Upper California, concen trating all then forces in that delightful country, in the neighborhood of the splendid harbor of St. Fran cis, on the Pacific Ocean. In a few years California will be in a position similar to that of Texas now ready for annexation. This, it is easy to foresee will excite and stimulate more than ever European interference, and doubly jeopardize the foreign re itttionn of the United StateB. In the meantime, whilst all these negotiations, in trigues, movements and counter-movements are g?ing on in Texn* and the regions round about whilst the British Government are collecting their naval forces, and fitting out "experimental squad tons" each of them equal to our whole navy? wtnlft tlieir Minister* and Knvoys, and Charges, and whole diplomacy, subtle, experienced, crafty, powerful an it is, are engaged in this business?let us re-echo the great question that is now heard all over the Union?what is our frovernment about1? What Meps are in progress to put the country inn pro)*r condition either to negotiate or to do any tlnnif Hsr ! It is humiliating enough to make a re ply to this inquiry. We do, indeed, sec some feeble, isolated effort* to concentrate n military force 011 the borders of Texas, and n few ol the forts on the sea-honrd have actually been inspected. Hut the great business ol the Government appears to be th< distribution ot the paltry spoils of clerkships ai Washington, and collectorships in the sea-port" ?<: yf i rnest cnsn, when the fortunes 0 tin H'-puMic tad oi human liberty are a stake, the Government of the United States are bmding their energies to euch mighty question* as the removal of Mr. John Smith from the land office?the appointment of Mr. Ebenezer Jackall to the Bureau of Pickings und Stealings?or the set tlement of some awful und all-absorbing feuil amongst the rival office-beggars of New York. Alas! alas! that this accursed partisanship?this sordid und beggarly thing called " spoils"?should ever be cafting a dark and inirtentous shadow on the destiny of the republic. Is it not time that the government should awake?that all should be con vinced of the propriety of the sentiment expressed by the Journal of Commerce?" it is well to be pre l?ared for the worst 1" Grand Celebration ok the Odd-Feixows' So ciety in Boston.?On the 17th inst.,the Anniversa ry of the Battle of Bunker Hill, it is the intention of the Odd-Fellows in Boston to give a grand cele brution on a large scale, and from the accounts that have been promulgated of the preparations, we may expect one of the most extensive aflairs of the kind that has ever come off , and one that will far surpass even the mass meetings of the various parties that were held in the vicinity of the modern Athens du ring the last jxditicul campaign, thus proving that even in these days of selfishness and narrow-mind ed party feeling, ther# is still enough benevolence left among us to encouragc and support these insti tutions, for the promotion of mercy and charity to wards all. The celebration is to take place beneath the shade of the trees on the Common, and a dinner table on the largest principle probably ever yet heard of will be spread for the accommodation of ten thousand persons, who will together discuss the various deli cacies of the season. 'Fish, (particularly the salmon for which the Eastern wajcrs are so famous,) flesh, fowl, vegetables, fruits, und all that can gratify the taste, will be supplied with a lavish hand, but not only u corporel but also an intellectual feast will be supplied during the day, and in the evening the many learned and eloquent persons who belong to the Association, will deliver addresses in the vari ous public places and buildings. In fact, the whole arrangement will be of such a stamp as has never been neen before in thus Western Hemisphere. Tiie Jewish Pentecost.?To-day the Jews cele brate the festival of the Pentecost. The word is de rived from a Greek term, signifying fifty, because it was, under the Jewish dispensation, observed fifty days after the Passover, in commemoration of the promulgation of the law from Mount Sinai. In old days it was called also, " the least of weeks," be cause it occurred at the end of a week of weeks, or a period of seven weeks. This is the second of the three grand festivals of the ecclesiastical year, at which all the males have to appear before the Lord at the nutional altar. In the palmy days of the Jewish power, it was ob served with great mirth and rejoicing. It is, as alj Christians are, or should be aware, a festival of the Christian Church, occurring fifty days after Easter, in commemoration of the descent of the Holy Gh#st on the disciples, and is called Whitsunday, or White-sun-tide, because those who were newly baptized appeared in a white dress at church, be tween taster and Pentecost. All the Jewish synogogues will be crowded to day, with the black-eyed beauties of Israel, and the browny sons of Israel, with theirhata on their heads. Selah. Distinguished Strangers in the City.?There are now a number of distinguished strangers in this city from various parts of the world. Among them we perceive General Armstrong, the military asso ciate of General Jackson in former times, recently Postmaster in Nashville, and now on his way as Consul at Liverpool. The Corporation, in an offi cial form, have extended their hospitality towards this distinguished veteran, and have appointed a day for that purpose. General Armstrong is accompa nied by several friends and connections, and will leave this city in a few days for Liverpool. We also perceive that several distinguished Texans are now here ; among others we lind Dr. Archer, one of the original founders of the indepen dance, the first president of its first convention; and, probably, destined yet to occupy a conspicuous posi tion in that country after its annexation to this.? Accompanying Dr. Archer, we ftnd<i?neral Thomas J. Green, also well known for his patriotism, and ardent support of the Texas cause. General Green was the commander of the celebrated Mier expe dition, and suffered dreadfully during his captivity in Texas; from which, however, he escaped. This took place after the return of Santa Anna to Mexico. These two gentlemen nre at the National Hotel, a new and elegant establishment, No. 5 Courtlandt street. The Tribune and Political Statistics.?We very cheerfully comply with the request of the Tri bune to state that it did not absolutely claim to have carried Florida for the whigs, although it intimated in a sly war that such might be the case. Still this correction will not very materially aflecf the im pression which prevails, relative to the sagacity of the Tribune in political statistics. We cannot easi ly forget the gross blunders it committed in the last Presidential election, jiarticulnrly a few months be fore that contest terminated, when it claimed lor Mr. Clay 20,000 majority in this State, and one of the greatest majorities throughout the country, ever given. This tremendous majority dwindled down to eight or ten thousand, and at last was over whelmed with crushing defeat. The Tribune may parade its tables and figures and prate about its poli tical sagacity as much as it pleases, but it can never make up to the poor whigs the immense sums lost by them in the late election by putting their faith in its calculations. In matters of Fourierism and phi losophy, we admit the Tribune is pre-eminently sa gacious and accurate, but in politics and the affairs of this world, the least said about its intelligence or I accuracy the better Tiie Collectorship.?The is tilling its co lumns with vile abuse of Mr. Van Ness. One would suppose (hat now that that small organ of a small fac tion wan assured, as it says, of Mr. Van Ness's re moval, it would refrain from abusing him. But the little carcase of the Newt is too full of malignity to act with ordinary decency. It accuses Mr. Van Ness of neglecting the duties of his office?a charge grossly untrue, if we can credit the statements of many who ought to know. We do think, from the bad temper, violence, and incessant quarrelling of the various democratic cliques here, that a sad drub bing awaits them from the hands of the whigs long before 1848. It was by this means that Mr. Van Buren was beaten in 1810. Cassius M. Clay's New Paper.?We have re ceived the first number of this paper, Tht Trut Ame rican, published at Lexington, Kentucky, and devo ted to universal liberty, gradual emancipation in Kentucky, literature, agriculture, elevation of labor, morally and politically, <Sec. This paper has been trumpeted through the land as the pioneer of a num ber that are to be started on the same principles? to advocate emancipation throughout the States?but on looking over this, its first number, we can find no indications of its being anything very extraordinary. It is much like any other country paper, and from the great noise made about it, we anticipated something more original than has appeared. Steamboat "Croton."?A trip, either for busi ness or pleasure, up the East river, to New Ro chelle, ( Jlencove, Oyster Hay and Cold Spring, wil| find the cleanest, eoolest, and best regulated con veyance in the "Croton," commanded by Capt. Charles Peck, better known last season as Com mander of same vessel between Norwich and Stam ford. No boat can rival her in speed, and no Cap tain ran possibly be more vigilant in that precarious navigation. To the numerous citizens now -wssine their summer in the above neighborhoods, this boat furnishes a sate, cool and speedy conveyance. r*At7tcH - Tlie packet ?hip Fidelia, will |,e Imnrhed at 2 o'clock, !' M , this day, trom VV H. u'elih's -hip yanl, loot ol 7th street, Kast River. Theatrical. . Park Theatre.?We have already announced that Mr. Anderson would appear tor one night more, previous to his departure for England, and this eve ning will be the last for perhaps many yeare that the public will have an opportunity of seeing him, as he sails to-morrow in the Great Western. The parts he will perform are Claude Melnotte, and Charles, in the Elder Brother. We anticipate there will be quite a rush to witness this last appearance, more particularly as on Friday evening Mr. Crisp will ap pear as Claude Melnotte, also with Mrs. Mowatt a* P.iuline. Though Mr. Andersen does not, like Elisha of old, leave his mantle behind him, still, Mr. Crisp will probably appropriate it to himself as far as regards this character, xn the delineation of which so much applause has been awarded to the various great uctore of the day, and the public will now have an opportunity of forming their decision between the two. There was a capital house lust night on occasion of Mr. and Mrs. Dyott's benefit. The play of the " Stranger" was performed, Mr. Dyott as the prin cipal male character and Mrs. Dyott as "Mrs. Hal ler." Both sustained their characters in a manner worthy of high commendation, and to the evident satisfaction of the house, whose plaudits were fre quent and discriminating. Mr. Dyott discovered a degree of talent for which those who did not know his fine capabilities would hardly have given him credit, and Mrs. Dyott's performance was charac terized by much originality and vigour. Niblo's Garden.?Whatever the attractions at the theatres may be, the hot weather drives people away. The two last nights have been so hot that whilst Niblo's is full, the theatres are " au con trairtunenclosed buildings may be justly term ed rummer establishments, and such is Niblo's, which is the best adapted for crowds and hot weather. Strungers to the city, had better go to Buffalo and miss the Falls of Niagara, than visit New York and omit seeing the Niblo's. Seven Castles to-night Chippendale appears in the last piece. General Welch's Great Troupe have started for their summer campaign, and are now giving their grand entertainments in Albany, from whence they purpose proceeding to Schenectady, West Troy, and Lansingburg. The superior class of entertain ments offered by the indefatigable General, and his partner, Mr. Mann, combined with the equestrian and other talent in his company, will certainly meet with success in the |>arts they purpose visiting. Musical.?On Monday next the French company commence their season at the Park. They will play four nights a week instead of three as we stated yes terday. The troupe is the best ever collected out of Paris. It comprises forty artists exclusive of the orchestra and mere^upernumerariea. We have been furnished with the following list of the principal vo calists ;? Ma ''lie Calve, prima domia. .Vlad'lle Casina, '2d do. Mad'lle Stephen Cceuriot, do. Mad'lle Maria. Mad'lle nicker. Mad'lle Eugenie. Mad'lle Caroline, &c. he. Mr. Amaud, first tenor grand opera. Mr. Cceuriot, firit tenor opera-comique. Mr. Garry, barytone. Mr. Dourrv, first base. Mr. Bernard, ucond basso. Mr. Montaiiia, drama and vaudeville. Mr. Bucher, Mr. Droflary, Mr. Prevoit, leader, and several musicians from New Orleans. Besides the first serious operas in the French lan guage, this admirable company intends to produce opera-comii/ue and vaudevilles. Great preparations are making by the fashionable people to make the opening night brilliant in the extreme. Next Mon day night will be the first of the season, which is to b? of two mondi's duration. M. IIuber's Concert.?We are informed that this entertainment, which was to have taken place on Thursday evening next, has been postponed, and that instead of it M. II. purposes giving a musical toirie on that evening. The compaay that will be present, will include all of the most distinguished di letanti in the city, and will probably be of a most re cherchf and scientific character. Reduction of Fares.?The Long Island Raij Road Company have reduccd the fares upon their road, which is now the cheapest route in the coun try. The fare from New York to Greenport, 95 miles, over as fine a road as can be desired,with the best Cars and Equipments, is $1,75, and compara tively low prices for all way places, running down to 8 cents. The prospect of an increased businsss has induced them to double their trains on the whole route?ao that they have now eight trains ar riving and departing exclusive of freight trains. With these facilities, available on account of their low price to all, with the attractions of Long Island, so varied and suited either to families, invalids or sportsmen, none can be at a loss where to go.? A Book is kept at the office of the Company, 56 Merchants' Exchange, where there is recorded the names, places of residence, with all particulars as to accommodation, price, ire., of all the principal ho tels, boarding houses and private families throughout the Island?comprising many delightful resorts on the Bays and Ocean,from Kockaway to Montaug and Green Port. This book is subject to the inspection of any one, desirous of resorting to the country. City Rkform.?The Newt, the organ of the Cor poration?their purchased, hired, bought and sold, ticketed and labelled organ?gives us a curious com mentary on their promises of city reform. It says that resectable people are now obliged to carry arms in order to protect themselves from the rob bers and assassins, who, in the absence of any po lice, prowl along the streets. Why is this 1 Be cause, forsooth, the Mayor and Common Council are at loggerheads about the spoils. This is the promised reform! We only wish the charter elec tion was to be gone into again next week. Fourth of July.?The pyrotechnical exhibition* that have been arranged by the committee appointed by the Common Council for that purpose, have been placed under direction of that able workman, Mr. Isaac Edge, jr., who stands unrivalled in his art.? We may, therefore, anticipate a splendid dispjay. British Bearer ok Despatches.?The Charlu ton Patriot of the 7th instant, suys:? Mr. Muir, bearer of Despatches from the British Co* ?ul at New Orleans, passed through this city by express yesterday afternoon. This gentleman will probably take passage in the Great Western. Something important is in the wind. Diplomatic.?His Excellency Le Baron de Gerott, U. S. Minister from Prussia, has arrived in the city and occupies apartments at the Globe Hotel. Steamship Grxat Western.?The letter bags of this Bteamer close to-morrow afternoon. TnK Weather.?Yesterday was a much cooler day than Monday. In Philadelphia, on the latter day, the mercury went up to 96 degrees in the shade. The Wtw Haven Herald, of the 8th inst., says:? If it if not warm enough to-day to satisfy the most fastidious salamander of the whole breed, we are no judges?that'* all. i P.

Hiwitlng Inteill ;?n?e. Tiit Late Races between Fajhion and Peytona We have received from a corresi>ondent the follow ing communication: Permit me, through your valuable pa|x?r, to give publicity to u few remarks upon an article in last week's Spirit of the Times, under the caption of the lute races on Long Island and at Camden. The ma nifest desire of the Editor to cast an odium upon the .Southern stable, is too apparent. In the article above alluded to, which is a review, chiefly, of the two races between Peytona and Fashion, the editor is particular in reiterating the opinion he expressed in his account of the first race, that " condition won the race," and then insinuates that Fashion's victory in a subsequent race proves most conclusively that he was right in the opinion his prolific brain first generated. He makes no ad mission of Peytona's cluim to superiority for defeat ing Fashion on Lone Island, because Fashion's sub sequent race proved her defeat was owing to her wunt of condition. Let the " dispassionate reader" judge from the following facts how far "condition won the match." On the morning of the match race, the horses were admitted by their respective trainers (certainly the most capable persons of judg ing) to be in most excellent condition. Mr. Laird, the trainer of Fashion, was so well satisfied with the suoerior order of his mare (her trial runs having proved better than those which preceded her race with Boston) that upon her success he "staked" a considerable sum. This circumstance, when it is known that Mr. L. is not a betting man, goes far to establish the fact of her good condition. The proof, however, is stamped indelibly upon the f.iee of the race itself. Every one at all familiar with FashionV previous performances, acknowledges it to be the fastest one she ever made, with due allowance for the heaviness of the track. Why the race at Cam den should make the Editor of the Spirit so tena cious of his first opinion, is an enigma which the writer is not capable of solving, unless it was the superior conditisn Peytona then manifested by her quick running. The Camden track was at leatt five seconds faster than the Union, and Peytona beat the time she made in her match-race (over the left) about 30 seconds. It is not the wish of the writer to detract in the |east from the well-earned reputation of Fashion in his opinion, her first race with Peytona, although she was defeated, added fresh laurels to her fame. But to put before the public in a proper light the ar ticle first alluded to?to show its vinaictiveness, we will quote a passage referring to a match proposed by the friends of the " Colonel.'* The friends of the " Colonel" offered to run him against any horse in Mr.K.'sstable, buteven this was hushed up atonce by the reflection that it was ungenerous to challenge a beaten party. What magnanimity ! almost equal to that displayed by Messrs. Laird, Johnson and Vun Mater for not stigmatizing the characters of Mr. Kirkman's horses l>y dirtancing them in their re spective races. The facts connected with this proposed match, are these:?That the friends of the " Colonel" offered to match him for $5000 against any horse in Mr. Kirkman's stnble except Peytona; it was not " at once hushed," but immediately accepted by Mr. K., who at onee despatched a gentleman with $1000, as forfeit money, to " the friends of the Colonel j" that after the preliminaries were agreed upon, these bragging gentlemen, " the friends of the Colonel" backed out. Camden. ["The tall son of York," (tall son of hum bug) and others connected with the paper above alluded to, know well on which side their bread is buttered. There are other pas sages in the same article as fallacious as those above mentioned, but their preposterousness carry with them their own contradiction. Only think of the "magnanimity of our Northern turfmen, and their sense of the dignity, proprieties, and courtesies among gentlemen, preventing them distancing every horse in Mr. Kirkman's stifle, including Peytona herself." St. George's Cricket Club.?The first grand match of this noble and manly game is to be {Hayed to-day in the true spirit of cricket, as it should be?for the love of the amusement, by eleven of the members of the St George's Club, from the north of England, and eleven from the south, on the ground belonging to the Club, on the Bloomingdale road, near 27th street. The members will muster at niue o'clock, and the wickets will be pitched precisely at ten. From the well known ability of the players, there is no doubt but that it will be a very interest ing and veil contested match. The following name* wiH guarantee this:? KORTH. SOUTH. Messrs Dodsworth, Messrs. Tinion, Wright, Groom, Whcatcroft, F. Tiuson, Syme, Bage, Wild, Bristow, Green, Marsh, Brand, Skippon, Eyres, Warrin, J. Buckley, Jr. Waller, J. Taylor, Jr. Vintoa, Iilnanaugh, NictouU. It is expected that the game will be entirely gone through by sunset at the latest. There is little doubt but that there will be great numbers present to wit ness the match. Later from Mexico. The British sloop of war Eurydice, Capt. Elliott, arrived off the Balize, says the N. O. Tropic, of the 2d instant, on Saturday, in eight days from Vera Cruz. Capt. Elliott, and a party of oflicers belong ing lo his ship, came up to the city yesterday. We understand that the Eurydice brings despatches from the British Minister in Mexico, hut we have been unable to learn their destination. A private letter from Vera Cruz, received by this arri val, states that the English are moving heaven anil earth to accomplish " something." What the " something" is, the writer leaves to the imagination of his correspondent, he not deigning to make further disclosure!. We U? gratified in being ablo to state that wo have at last heard "something" as to the whereabouts the state and condition (lamentable though it be) of the distin guished diplomatist, the Hon. Wilson Shannon, Ex-Go vernor of Ohio, about whom so many onqniries have been lately made by an anxious public, who will share in our gratification on learning that the man "learned in inter national law" is still in the land of tho living, although in a sore predicament. The unfortunate Minister to Mexico has again "fallen among thioves." We say again, because it will be recollected that when he was travelling from Vera Cruz to Mexico,to a sume the duties of his station, some of the audacious Moxican freebooters assumed the privilege of lightoning him of his stores of gold coin and other valuable trifles, to his great chagrin and discomfiture. Truly, Mr. Shannon's outset as a di plomatist has been most villainously unlortunate. Robbed on the way to the scene of his duties as representative of his country in a foreign land, snubbed in the shortest manner imaginable by an outlandish Mexican, who tells him, " 1 have nothing more to say to you and then, af ter months of obscurity, leaving a sensitive people to imagine all kinds of diro mishaps as having occured to him, the first wo hear of the unfortunate gentleman is, that he lias arrived at Vera Cruz, " all tattered and torn, and quite forlorn," the vile Mexican banditti having again " cleanod him oat," and literally stripped him. He should now retire from public life, and repose on his hard earn ed iame. Wo have received a letter from our correspondent at Mazatlan.who states that the American barquo Quixotte had arrived at San Bias from Alta California, with the lato Governor on board and his soldiers, having been ex pelled by the native Californians. The northern depart ments, our correspondent says, are wholly averse to a war with the United States, on account of the annexation of Texas. Regarding the treaty between Texas and Mexico, the Mexican Government finds itself in dilemma which pre cipitate action might render dangerous. They hnvc raised a war spirit which they discover they cannot quell, and winch even to conciliate appears to l>o hazardous.? Notwithstanding tho large majority which the treaty or the authority to treat, obtained in tne Mexican Congress, having passed the chamber by a vote of -13 to 13. and the Senate by 30 to 0, the measure is exceedingly unpopular with the people. The adherents of Santa Anna, and malcontents of every hue and kind, encourage all forms of opposition to the existing government. Knowing the inability of Me*ico to engage with the United States in war, and confident that she cannot rely upon England fur assistance, they represent to the ignorant multitudes the invasion of this country is a task of easy accom plishment, and that the British Government only waits the word to join them against u*. The people are, there fore, madly in lavor of war, and the adoption of any course by the existing government having a itesceliil tendency, will more than probably result in ft* over throw. The friends of Sania Anna, and the opposition generally, stimulate this warlike spirit to tho utmost, and one of two things is rendered almost certain, either that the existing government will declare war agninst the United States, or that anew revolution will speedil) break out and sweep it from existence. No attempts are made in Mexico to disguise the deep and active interest which Great Britain takes in ever; tiling calculated to prevent the effectuation of the An nexation measmo.

S Gazette, of yesterday Cats HaytiVn, May 3A, 184ft. President Pierault arrived here this afternoon Iroin Port au Prince, with but a small escort; and judging from the rumors accompanying his return, which has been rather unexpected and precipitate, his official visit to the capital has been far from satisfactory. On his arrival at Port au Prince, he is said to have ordered the troops of that place to march upon the Spanish frontiers, giving the command to Ucncral lliclie ? liko himself, an old Gene ral of the time of Christophe. The troops refused to march, and the President ordered them to lie decimated. This order Richc refused to execute,and in the confusion which followed, the President is said to have been shot at. It is further reported, that at an interview which the French Consul General had witii the President shortly after his arrival, on the subject of the French claims, several instalments of which have for some time been due, the President told the former that as the present dis union of the cast nnd west had been brought about main ly by the machinations of the French government, no further payments would lie made, until the French and Spanish parts of the Island should again be united? whereupon, it is said, the French Consul demanded his passport*. The French claims, at present, amount to little short of thirteen millions Spanish dollar*. Disaffec tion to the President has been still turther increased at Port au Prince, by the belief that he chcrishes an undue partiality for the north, and the apprehension that he in tends to remove the aeat of government to Cape ilay tien. It i* evident that much trouble and dissatisfaction exists, and that the President is far from being popular at Port au Prince. Pierault was not tho choice of the people, or rather ol the Council of State, and higher officers of the army at Port au Prince, but owe* his election chiefly to tho alarm of an invaiion by lleranl, which prevailed at the time ol Gnerrier's death. Businoss i* much inter rupted by the disturbed itate of the country. The stock of American provisions was ruth or light during the last month, but there is now a good *upply, and three cargoes arc daily expected.
