RKVOLUTIOSi We have been favored with a Mobile Herald fy i Tribune Extra, dated the 15th inst. at 11 P. M , j t-iken from an extra of the New Orleans Tropic of the previous day. It contains the following letter with the latest news from Mexico, received by the schr. Water Witch: ? We hasten to lay before the readers of the Tropic the latest news from Mexico. The Water Witch, Captain Trennis, lefi Vera Cruz on the fith inst., and arrived here between 6 and 0 o'clock this morning. It seem* that af ter oil the gasconading despatches of the Mexican Minis ter, a declaration of war is now very doubtful. Our prompt and intelligent correspondent tells tho whole story. V k n a Cruz, Aug. 4, 1S4S. Dear Sirs ? I last had this pleasure, per lielampago, which left here on the 28d ult.; no arrivals have since taken place from your port. Tho election of a new President commenced on the 1st inst., for which there arc four candidates? tay, (ion. Ilerreru, President ml interim, lien. Almonte, cx-Mexi can Minister at Washington, Gomez Farias, and one oth er, whose name ho? escaped my memory. The Presiden cy, however, seems to lay between tho two former, one ef w hom, it is supposed, will be the successful candi date. Almonte has offered bis services to the government in the approaching campaign against Texas ; but I rather think it is more a ru?e <h guerre to help him to the Presi dency, than any great desire he has got to have a brush | with the Texans? or as I ou;'ht rather to say now, the United States H. B. M. brig of war Persian arrived hero on 27th ult., in seven days from Galveston, bringing the news of the ' annexation of Texas being confirmed by President Jones ! ? and also that a body of United States troops, say about | 4000 men, were expected at Galveston in the courss of a i few days. It appears now that our government is in no hurry to declare war against the United States, or, at any rate, it seems to bo the general opinion that she will merely at tempt to re-conquer Texas, without making any declara tion o( war. Of course the news by the Persian caused a great excitement throughout tho country. The Min istry has presented an act to the two Chambers for their deliberation. 1st. To declare war against the United States. 2d. Authorising them to raise a foreign or national loan to the amount of IS millions of dollars, which they consider to be requisite to carry on a war and re-conquer Texas. The proposals are now under discussion in the cham bers, and if they get the " l'argent" there is no doubt they will make the attempt to again get possession, though it is doubtful whether they will declare war against the United States or not. Of course you have heard, ere this, of the revolution at Tobasco, in favor of Federalism, which has induced Government to declare said port closed to foreign as well as native shipping, but is rather puzzled to fiuu out how they will keep out the former, as they have not got a single steamer that they can get roady in less than eighteen or twenty days, all the engineers being still, as I may say, loafing on shore and waiting for their pay, of which, for some months past, they have received but a mere trifle. The tariff question is still under discussion, or rather has been referred to a committee, but if they procrasti nate as they generally do, God knows when we shall get sight of the long expected document? and in the meantime the country will lose a groat deal, as mer chants do not like to ship with so much uncertainty. I have nothing further of interest to inform you of at present, and beg to subscribe myself, gentlemen, very respectfully, yours. A ? The Water Witch not sailing yesterday, 1 open to say that we have no news from the American Squadron, but it is thought here that it will soon appear. It is said that the troops now on the road to Texas, amount to 10,000 men. Vours, itc. From Veiia Caur? By private letters received yes terduy morning, we learned the arrival at Pensacola on the 1 Ith inst of the French brig of war Le Mercure, from Vera Cruz. She sailed from the latter port on tho 27th day of July ? three days after the lielampago. She appears to havo brought neither letters nor pa pers, but we learn verbally that Mexico had neither declared war against the United States nor adopted any non-intercourse measure in regard to Ame rican commerce. It is not known in this city, however, whether any advices had been received at Vera Cruz later than the 19th ult., from the city of Mexico, to which date the Kelarapago brought ut news. The Americans in Vera Cruz were leaving, and preparing to leave, as fast as possible, and this is thought to account satisfacto rily for the detention of the Water Witch, about which so much anxiety has been expressed. Residents in the interior of Mexico from the United States were all flock ing to Vera Cruz, in order to embark for home. This is the only intelligence which we have been able to glean fcy the arrival of Le Mercure. The Oulk Shi adrom.? The I.'. S. brig of war Toi-poise arrived at Pensacola on tho afternoon of the 11th instant, from Norfolk, and exchanged salutes with the commo dore in command of the yard. The steamship Princeton was hourly expected at the came port. The Alabama arrived last evening from Pensacola, but we could learn nothing from her as to the repairs re quired on the Falmouth. We are only informed that she is leaking very badly. The bug Somers has not yet sailed from Pensacola, al though apparently all ready.? JV. O. Picayune, ~iug. 14. Norfolk Hbrai.d Office, Aug. 20, 3 P M. Extract from a letter to a gentleman in this city, dated U. S. Ship Sr.M*?v'i, ) Galveston, Aug. 7, 1845. J "We sailed yesterday from Aransas, having convoyed from New Orleans to that place two merchant ship* with troops numbering fifteen hundred. Brigadier (ieneral Taylor commander-in-chief, and ii encamped for the pre sent on St. Joseph's Island. As soon as the troops can he conveyed to the main he will take up his march for Cor pus Christi. There is a good deal of difficulty in devising means for transporting the men across the Day ; and, in consequence of the very shoal water, it can bn done only by the use of flat boats, which yet remain to be construct ed. We have sent them all the spare spars and lumber we can well afford. The Kalmouth arrived at Aransas yesterday morning with orders to afford all necessary assistance to the army, and her carpenters were sent on shore to assist in building their boats. Our stay in Gal veston will be about forty-eight hours, when we shall return to Aransas ? ?*???? I have learned that the Mexicans have an army of quite ?20,000 men. No doubt our people think that fifteen hun dred men are sufficient to eat up Mexico, castles and all, but it will be found that the drilled Mexican soldiers are anything but contemptible foes. The greatest source ol apprehension to our army, however, is from the Caman chc Indians, a tierce and warlike tribe in the very heart of Texas, and excited against us, they would prove a most distressing enemy. We expect te bo in Pensacola in a lew weeks. All well on board this ship.'' The following appears in jhe Union ot Thursday evening : ? Oai.vsjtox, Aug. 9, 1845. To thf Editor ?f tht Union .?We have no late intelli gence from the convention. Rumor says that the Presi dent has left Washington for Austin, having been invited to do so by the convention, who wish to get his con sent to chango our form nl government immediately. ? The manner in which it is proposed to do this, is not known. I do not believe, myself, that President Jonea will consent to any such measure. Ilis friends here, generally, are of the same opinion. 1 have every reason to believe that Manor Donelson, so far as he is concerned, would decidedly disapprove of such a move. I do not believe, however, that anything can, by possibility, be done to defeat annexation. The people aro determined upon it, and it is to be hoped that no precipitate action on the part of those delegated to act for them, will throw difficulties mi its way, and I am satisfied, in my own mind, that President Jones will do all In his power to carry out the expressed wishes of tho people, lie will do it in proper season, and in a proper way; and I have no doubt but ho will, in all matters, show himself worthy of the high confidence of tho peo ple of Texas, N. B. ? Major Donelson arrived here on the day before yesterday, from Aransas bay, where he had been to visit General Taylor and the United States troops stationed at that point, lie ha4 been quite unwell, from exposure in going down in an open boat, lie leaves hero to-day in the Woodbury, for the United States. Military. ? For the information of the numerous gal lant citizens who will wish to avail themselvos of ap pointments in the army, in expectation of a rupture with Mexico, xv e deem it proper to state, what we have lea re - ed from the War Depaitn ent, that the present military establishment oan in no event be increased without the previous legislation of Congress; and, of course, there will be no such appointments to he made until first au thorised by law. The militia only can bo called out, in aid of tho regular army, as now by law established. Thore are now attached to the army many supernume rary graduates of the Military Academy, lit for the most activo and Important service. ? Uni0n,Jtug. 31. Movement of U. S. Troops.? Colonel Whistler and Major JStaniford, of the 4th Infantry, were to leave last evening for Aransas Bay, on board the schr. Mary Wilkins. Also two companies of the 4th Infantry, under the command of Major Graham, accompaniel by l.ieuts. Hoskins, Cochrane and Barry, on board the kirk Wm. Ivy. Col. Wnistler, on his arrival, will assume the command of the gallant 4th.? AT. O. Pic. Jl?n- 14. j The Van Buren (Ark.) Tnlrlliffnrrr siiya, in the paper of the 3d inst., that it has been placed in possession of certain (items of (Texas news ^through the politeness of Mr. Uregg, of Marshall, Harrison county, Texas. Among these items we And the following : " The Dragoons th?t were ordered into Texas were rendezvoused near Nacogdoches, waiting for the em. ccssary for their consumption, we understand have been ordered immediately to Austin by forced marches, and much excitement wax created in Harrison county by the movemeut ; as the orders were not accompanied with any assigned cause for the movement, and many feared that the Comanche* might have threatened a descent upon that city while the Convention was in session, to capture the members. The orders for the engagement of wagons, the., were countermanded, and the troops at once put in motion for Austin." From Santa Ff.. ? The Inticpcntltnce Expositor of the 9th inst., says: ? Dr. Connelly's company arrived in town 011 Thursday last from Chihuahua and Santa Fe. F.very thing was quiet in the country. There were ten wagons in company, and they brought in $60,000 in specie. We learn that a company of Spanish traders will be in this fall, provided thero is no difficulty between the United States arid Mexico. The Expositor, published at Independence, Missouri, says : ? "A short time since, a Spaniard in one of the Santa I<'e companies, when near the State line, grossly insulted the wife of one of our citizcns. As soon as the facts were known to the people in the neighborhood, they held a consultation, and de cided, that as there was every probability that the Spani ard would escape justice, thereby exposing their wives and daughters in a greater degree to the insults of the Spaniards, they would make such an example of this one, as would be a warning to all others. They started and overtuok him on the prairie, whore he was soundly thrashed? he, wo further learned, reached the "Lone Kim" where he died. From the Aiitl-IUnt Region. Delhi, August 20, 1S-15. More Arrests ? Committals ? Both Sulci of the Ques tion?The Government Nowhere? Military Ardor ? 'lit? Weather. Yesterday, no less than seven prisoners were marched into jail here, live in one gang, and two in another. At lirst, such arrivals were the signal of a strong display of outraged feelings on the part ol" die people of this town, but custom has brought them now to look on them as on ordinary events. I have it from one of those who know, that the outburst ol violence, and very naughty language that took place here against the first prisoners, was not creditable to the discretion and forbearance of the citizens. Phis I do not mention for the purpose ol lowering them or their fair fame, but it is a jfaci, and as such must be told. But as an offset let it be recollected that their provocation was unprecedented, and calcula ted to arouse the ire of a stoic, and it will not be a matter of surprise that therewere breathings of tlireat ning and slaughter, hard names and all that, poured out in urolusion against the unfortunate captives. All this is put upon record, that such an occurrence jSeoPfflr S1 mounted ?.?' out yesterday, but where to is kept strictly secret. As they trotted up street they became altogether in visible in a few moments in an immense cloud of dust too dense it appeared to admit of respiration, how* the rear files get along is a wonder to me fur two or three days of such riding together. V ast exertion is made to arrest a man namedScudder.who is believed to be th. nerso n who acted as chief of the drama, sad who gave command to shoot both man and horse. There Is no question but that he is one ofthe prime movers in it. 1 jut .VJV- u little likelihood of his arrest; he is by this timeout ofthe State, and beyond the reach of his l,u"u crs who are spurred on by the promise of a reward * >00 His old father has been in gaol for a week but was liberated on Monday, nothing appealing against him in '^'man^named Squires has been upon his examination to-dav He is one of the marked men, and well known asa conspicuous personage in the anti-rent ranks, and is under recognizances to appear at the next criminal term, for helping to tnr and footnera man called Tim < orbin, a year ago, at his own house.

Brought to the test of law, it is simple enougl . t\iat has been violated, and must be vindicated. But if it is a sound principle to judge of acts by moti , there is a wide field for enquiry before the mere act of joining an association of anti-renters, be termc 1 1 criminal.

United States Hotel, > Saratoga Springs, August 21, 1845. J Fashionable* and Prtlerultrt at Saratoga ? Why are j you Stared at ? The aittenre of "Drets" ? Mysteri ous Stranger ? Arrivals ? Schcnectady and Troy Railroad, We had another hop last night, in the grand sa loon of this house, which was well attended. The fashionables are just beginning to enjoy themselves ? they have awoke, at last, from their torpid, frozen ! state? lain aside their dignitied, reserved and ridi- j ctilous airs, and now cry nothing but vive la ba%a- ' telle ! The pw venue i, however, still hold up their j heads? look pugnacious? rattle their gold ? make j impudent ?|>eeches ? talk very loud ? affect a distrait sort of air, and look with contempt on all who have not as much brass in their taces, or gold in their pockets, as themselves. As we have before re|>eat edly remarked, we certainly have a very funny set here, and as soon as you thank heaven a certain disa greeable person or coterie is gone away, you are met by more of the same sort, who have just arrived, enter ing the door. There are two rather curious things wlucli must strike the eye of an observing man in Saratoga. Firstly you are looked att gazed at, stared at more than you ever were before in all your life ? but then you in turn catch ihe infection, and practice it as much as those around you. Every new comer is carefully inspected ? the expression of his face, the cut of his coat ? they even look into his hat to see it it was made by whom. Now what does this mean ! There certainly is "something in it | more than natural." Our own idea is, that the strange mixture? and singular conii>ound? the mot ly crowd here assembled, has rendered the adoption of some such practice absolutely necessary. It is a well known doctrine/lhath"like seeks like." The true gentleman, therefore, scans the faces of new comers, in order to pidge whether it would be suita ble to make their acquaintance ? and the t roturier does the same for the purpose of knowing where to seek lor sympathy. Secondly, you will find an absence of " dress" ? an abandon of manner among our lashionables. The gentlemen come to breakfast and dinner ? enter the parlors and promenade the piazza's in " sack"* coats, badly cut pantaloons, and without gloves. The ladies oftimes comedown stnirs in morning gowns, and most charmingly captivating they look. It is only at balls, hops, and occaaionally in the evening that any very great pains is bestowed on the toilette. 11 this custom should extend much fur ther, woe unto the I'ariiian milliners, dress-makers and tailors. There is a very mysterious stranger among us, with a foreign air, who" sports a moustache a la Henri Qualcr, and excites much attention. Rumor, that faulty old lady, with her thousand tongues, sets him down as a foreign Count incog. Having embraced the cause of the injured roles, it is said his estates were confiscated, and he wos forced to fly ? leaving his wife and family to the merciless protection of his enemies. And here he is seeking the Lethean waters for a troubled mind, in the bubbling fountains of Saratoga. Among the arrivals at this house, this morniug, we may mention the names of J. Vorder, U. S. A.; J. S. Prince, Winter, and lady, Ala.; Mr. and Mrs. Gibson, La.; John B. Lamar, .Macon, Oa.:. Rev. Dr. Oindrat, Ala.; Mr. and Mrs. Walker, 8.C.; J Horn, Esq., and two lovely daughters, New Vork; Dr. McKnight, lady, and son, do. Much excitement has existed here for the last few days, arising from the fact of the suspension of the half-past eleven o'clock train of railroad cars for Schcnectady and Albany. This train being expressly for the benefit of passengers destined for the Kast and West. Those for the West leaving the cars at Schenectady, where they met with the one o'clock train from Albany? and those for Boston having connected with the Kastern train at .Albany without detention. Passengers for the West are now compelled to rise at five o'clock in tho morning, and take the six o'clock cars for Schenectady? or the evening train, and ride nil night. Tlioseforthe Kast must leave here in the early morning train, and l>o detained at Troy nntil after dinner. It would ajipear that this abuse has been brought about by the "Trojans," in order to ad vance their own interests at the expenso and inconveni ence of the visitors at the Springs. Within a few days past the annual election for Direc tors of the Schenectady Railroad Company has taken place, and by some management a majority of directors favorable to* these views have been elected, whoso first act has been to suspend the favorite line of the traveling public. It is notorious that the road between horo and Troy is unsafe, many accidents have occurred, the lives of passengers have been jeopardized by the " snake heads" spreading and rising olf the track. Notwithstaud ing the many accidents there seems to be a desire to compel.tho fashionable community to go to Troy, for the purpose of gratifying an idle curiosity, and for the bene fit of hotel keepers who wish to get a dinner out of them. Within the last three weeks a " snake head'' is said to have passed horizontally through one of the long cars, but it fortunately entered the door and passed through the centre. A few days afterwards a man had his leg, and another his arm, broken. New Haven, Conn., Aug. 21, 1845. The Brothers in Unity, a secret society, held their usual annual meeting in the tipper part of the Globe building, yesterday at 4 o'clock P. M.; the Rev. Dr. Smith officiated as chairman, and the Rev. R. Gurley as Secretary. The following resolutions were unanimously adopted: ? Resolved, That we shall evor regard the Society of Brothers in Unity with interest and affection, undiminish ed by time, change, or absence. Resolved, That it is proper and desirable that we should meet together, from time to time, for tho purpose of interchanging congratulations and recollections of "auld lang syne." Resolved, That so far as we may be able, without neg lecting our other duties, to assist and encourage the so ciety in its efforts to secure the high advantages at which it aims, we will do so now and hereafter. Resolred, That this society will henceforth hold an annual meeting on commencement week, when the old members are cordially invited to meet their younger brethren. After the passing of the resolutions, old Simeon Baldwin, who graduated at Yale some fifty years ago, rose to address the society. He exhibited a catalogue ot the society as it then existed, and in ihe course of his remarks, stated that the library then numbered only 100 volumes ; it now contains 10,000.

Their music and marching add much to the liveliness of the city. At one o'clock to-day the two companies partook of a Hplendid dinner, provided by the Blues at the City Hall. The city is i>erfectly jammed with strangers ? not an unoccupied bed in one of the hotels ? the Tontine was compelled to refuse several who wished to re main there during the exercises.

A singular disclosure has taken place in relation to the case ot Mr. Henry Bragge, whose detention in jail, on a charge of abandoning his tami y , was alluded to yesterday. It will be recollecte d that Bra eire was complained ol by his wile for threatening t desert her and her offspring, if she did not consent to his alliance with another female, who had become deeply enamored of him, and whose wealth and charms were speciously set forth as a justification of this most extra ordinary and revolting proposition. It ttP?ea? ^ H1? " fair ladye" is a young widow residing in Boston, the daughter ot a highly respectable gentleman ot 1 ortlftiid, at whose house she was sojourning when she wrote to Mr. Bragge the subjoined letter. She does not disguise either her own or her father's knowledge in relation to her lover's being a married man, and seems to regard that as an exceedingly slight obstacle to the accomplish ment of her unhal?owed(purposes. Although the i com munication does not bear any aignature, Mrs. Bragge, (who is stated to be an amiable, exemplary and accom plished woman,) has made oath as to the authorship, and has prevailed upon the Police Magistrate to address let ters to the widow and her father 4 ail vising them of the severe measures that will be resorted to, 111 the event of any further attempt being made to seduce a young and hitherto respectable man from his allegiance to his do ! mestic altar. The document which we now publish, as I an evidence of the strange infatuation alluded to, is di rected to Henry Z. Taylor, Brooklyn and is post marked " Portland, Maine, August 6th." With the exception of some names, which for obvious purposes we omit, the following!, a verbatim cop^^ ^ Augugt ^ "Dr.\a HrrfRY ? I am now in Portland, and trying to re concile father.

She says he is much thought of as a gentleman. '? My dear Henry, if the old woman will go, and you tell me she is gone, I am determined to go to New York ? nothing shall prevent me. When shall I see my dear Henry? Shall I seo him soon? I should think if she was deserted, she would sooner go, or Icel willing to do so.
