NEW YORK HERALD. N?w %?rh, Sunday, S'arelt 1, 1MU, ThtCrlilt In our Mexican Halations, We await with much anxiety the developments of events among our neighbors ol Mexico. Since the assumption of the chief" power by Paredes, we have been constantly kept on the qui tine, by a suc cession of rumors of various kinds, speaking of re volution and war; but nothing certain or decisive has happened since the event referred to Mean time, the disposition of the ruling powers in Mexi co is no secret, und enough of their acts has apj?ear ed to show that they are in earnest, so far as they can be. They have positively refused ell our overtures for the establishment of friendly relations, and have sent back our Minister, Mr. Slidell, w ithout even allowing him anassportas an accredited agent ?f our Government By our last advices from Mexi co, via New Orleans, and Irom Washington, we 1-arn that Mr Slidell lefi the ciiy of Mexico the 17ih ult., under an escort from ihe Government. We commend the course of Mr. Polk in endea voring to op?n negotiations, and avert, if possible, the necessity ol war; and although hittierlo his et fort has becu unsuccessful, it is the no less com mendable; and should this all ur eventually result in war, it will never be a cause of regret or reproach to us that we did hs much as in us lay to avert such a calamity. We on not wi9h to be understood, in thus speaking, that that war is to be the end of th s difficulty. It may yet be determined without an absolute rupture, Hnd we hope tt may; but the prospect is warl ke, and the promises of peace are overshadowed by the dark and sinister forebodings of war, perchance a small one with Mexico?perhaps a terrible one with a poriion of Eu rope. It was observed sometime ago, in an article we published on the nia'tcr of Oregon, that it ap peared as if, in ihe warlike clamor raised 011 that question, we had been, to use a popular and Big nificant figure of speech, " harking up Ihe wrong tree," and that the shell was 1.kely sooner to hurst in a very different quarter. It is by no means im probable that our prediction may soon be veri fied. It will be seen by c reference to the ac counts we last published from Mexico, that a dou ble and simultaneous movement has taken place. Our army is re|>orted to have advanced, and that of Mexico preparing to advance, to take up an hostile positions. This looks something like invasion, and the ac count is corroborated by our private information Our cabinet has not been idle, nor will the Mexicans find us unprepared It is, indeed, to be believed that the late Cabinet Counc.l, mentioned in the lhrald of Friday, as being summoned almost at mid night, related in part to this nia'fer," The meeting was no doubt relative to Oregon more than to any other question, but the allairs of Mexico probably came in for their share of the debate. It is probable that the rash and foolish impetuosity of the Mexican leaders, and the pledge under which Paredes is held to recover Texap, and maintain the integrity of the nation, may have precipitated this movement. Nor is it, at the same time, improbable that some encouragement by British assurances, and,perhaps, some aid with British funds, have gone hand n hand with the operations of the Mexicans And to 6how the extent of the lolly of the present government of Mexico, we need merely refer to the communications that have lately been published in our columns, relating to the policy and influence of Almonte in the action and tendency ol Mexican diplomacy. Almonte is now the master spirit of Mrxico, and his views have been fully developed in the Herald. We believe the time is arrived when these views, thus emanating from him, will be put in execution, or an attempt made to do so. It has long been ihe desire of our government to bring the difficulties with Mexico to some definite I conclusion. We have given proof of this, by , being foremost to oifer jhe hand of peace ; but while in view of the menaces thrown out, we have ! not neglected the preparations for war. Mexico alone has held back and threatened, end her course has been marked by duplicity and concealment ? But while our government has been all along anx ious to lose no time in bringing Mexico to settle the dilfijulties between the two countries, yet following the dictates of a just and prudent policy, we believe we may affirm that the Uaited Suites, though on the watch, and not to be caught unprepared, will not become the ac ual aggressor in a war, which maybe of long duration; nor wi'l she be the par ty that will strike the first blow. We may, and it is, indeed, likely, however, that we shall blockade all tne Mexican porta. Hitherto we have not committed ourselves by any hostile de monstration, and it is to be ho|>ed we shall cou- i tinue to preserve ihe attitude and disposition of a party in the right, and place our neighbors in the wrong,by the prudence and deci-ion ol our measures Aleantime.while the Mexican army is on the move, our fleet is collecting in the Gulf of Mexico; and General Taylor having received orders to advance toward the llio Grande, has already brok n up his quarters at Corpus Chnsti, and by this time is no douot entrenched in a more advanced position. While the movements now taking place on the Mexican side are undoubtedly hostile, those on our side are, at present, only precautionary. We have our frigates in the Gult and on the Pacific, and our army on the Rio Grande, not to make war, but to prevent it; not to attack, but to prevent attacks, and to secure our people on our frontiers from molestation and disturbance ; bur, Rt the same time to show to our neighbor, the absolute necessity of an immediate settlement of all troubles with us. If Mexico attem|t9 to strike, then Mexico will nave begun the war; and the United States will not be I found backward in meeting an enemy, wherever be is to be found. Our relations with Mexico, it thus seems, are now reaching a crisis, and it is necessary lor our government to act decisively and energetically with her. The difficulties bei ween the two nations must be settled, and the sooner the better, for all concerned. Actioi* of Individual Mind ?It was observed by somebody?some grave philosopher or other?we can't just now remember his name?that ail young men are radicals, all old men conservatives. That this is true in the political world, as a general rule, no one can deny. To be sure, old leaders may be pointed out among *e radical parties, but in thein ambition overcomes the tendency of age, which is to make men timid and fearful of change?of pro gresa. It is the bold inspiration of youthful blood that prompts men to practise severe surgery on the diseases of the State. As in politics, ao in religion. No old man ever begins religious reform; it ia the young inan, whose high aspirations have never been checked and dampened by the cold experience of the world's sluggishness. In religion, the case of Brownson, lately converted from Protestantism, is a striking illustration. In youth an ardent reformer, a zealous man of progress, a bold advocate of experiment, as he grows older he becomes a calm conservative in principle, (urns his back upon the future, and holds fast to the old state of things. Be he right, or be he wrong, we do not pretend to determine. As an illustration in the political world, we point to the young " democracie'"?it is they who pro gress, while their more antiquated brethen cling to the past. The sum of the whole matter is, that the action of individual mind is retrograde, while that of nations and tne world is onward. This may seem para doxical, but it u none the leas true. Snow Storm Thu has certainly been a most remarkable month for snow Morms. It came in with a storm, and seems determined to go out in the same respectable manner. l? commenced snow ing again yesterday about noon, and continu* d through the dny and most of the night, accompanied by a high wind, which made very il ?agree ?ble un veiling.

We notice, also, th >t it Iiuj been commenced in Ntw Hampshire, and promises to he equally successful. This is the true republican mode, and il it is practi cable, would destroy, in n great measure, the party corruptions ot the present day. Important from St Domingo ?Captain Fuller, of the schooner Navarro, arrived yesterday from the city ol St. Domingo, which port she lelt on the 28 h of January, report* that since the catastrophe, by s npwn-ck, of three of the f'ayiien men-of-war at I uerto PUta, nothing of importance had transpired between the belligerents. The Haytien Admiral, with 114 of the prisoners, including thirty four offi cers, were in custody at the city; the others were at 1 uerto Plata. One of the officers among the pri. soners is brother-in law of President Pierrot. Capt Wfon, also among them, being a deserter from the Dominicans, had been tried by court martial, and concemned to death. He appealed to the Preaident or mercy, who had referred the matter to Congtess, winch was to have been convened on the 2J of Feb ruary. Accord ing t. the El Dominicano, of the 18th ol January, some of the officers declare that their instructions from President Pierrot were'totheeffect that once getting possession of Samana and Puerto Plata, all males, wnhout exception of person or age, and all females under five, were to be massacred ( patar a ciuhilto.' ) Women over forty years to be ned back to back, and conveyeJ to the Cape ; the younger women to be left to the discretion of the captors. The Dominican sloop of-warCibao, (for merly the Alen) arrived from St. Thomas on the 15th alt., and would soon proceed to Puerta Plata The American schooner J. W. Failer, and Danish brig Carlota, both lately purchased by the Domini can government, were being equipped as men-of war. Ihe Dominicans appeared to be settled in their policy, and quite anxious for peace, that they might enter on their new career, founded on the en- I couragement of foreigners and a liberal system of ! government generally. The New Amer.can Tariff Bill.?The new ! act sent to the Committee ol Ways and Means hy .he Secretary of the Treasury, has not yet been presented to the House, from which we would infer that it was undergoing some material a! erauone. It ,s possible that it may be kept back un til ihe Oregon question is disposed of in the Senate as much depends upon the determinate of that bo y. bhould l'ie S?1"* Pa" the notice resolutions, as hey came from the House, we Have no doubt a bill making appropriations for fortifications, and an increase in our navy, will be immediately intro duced tnto the Lower House, which w,l| arreet a? further efforts to modify and reduce the tariff.

The audi enres hsve been numerous, and the artists warmly ap plauded nightly, the applauding equally divided between Mr Crisp and the lady. Now for the excitement. It so hsoper a thst Mr J.

"Upon this state of matters, e clique of asms half doter. individuals, headed by ? blathering bro ker. and an editor of one of tbo city papers, a particular friend of Mr. Murdoch, endeavored to get up en excite ment against Ctisp, on account of hi* being a fortignar, an I attove to oust him out of his engagement, detracting from bis merits end pronouncing him ? humbug. Tbey even went to far aa to propose to him to give up "ia on " " rdocb ; 0i gagement to Mr. Murdoch ; finding that ha would not yield to ao insulting a proposition, he wet told that ell the pre * were against him, end that if ha did not suffer Mr. Mu'dorh to play, either in his stead, or with bim, he, playing secondary parts, that be would be hissed Irom the stage, dome peiaons outdoor* having h-ard of this ron?pi-aev, so at variance with the cbival nc spirit ol the South, determined that such en insulting and infamous outrage should not be perpetrated ; and a complete revulsion ol public, ferling be* taken place.

' ships, and all other public property ot Texas, but wrong to take with ihem the hall dozen natal ?(& cera, to whom that republic hid pledged her sove reign faith when they entered her service 1 Did Texas merge her national independence by act of reciprocal obligation in the Umjm, or was she sub jugated by it, and, as a conquered vassal, reduced to accept whatever terms may suit the victor's pies sure 1 Objection is made by some to the admission ol the Texan officers to our service, on the ground that it would be unjust to those already there. To this it may well be answered, that the increased ter ritory, seaboard, revenue, and political importance Which Texas brings, without care or coat, to the Union, justities her in claiming, as simple justice, the aligut addition which she brings to the prrnmntl <?1 the common navy. The Convention tor prepa ring the Constitution of Texas, intimated an expec tation that Commodore Moore would hold the rank ot Post Captain under the combined governments, and it is not to be believed this expectation will be laUified For thirty years our navy has runted in the idle ness of u continual peace. Not so with the infant H-et ot the Lone Star. Hardly had the energy of President Lamar given it existence and torm, when it entered on one of tue most perilous and unequal cruises recorded in naval history. In the very har bors of Mexico?under the guns of the fortified towns?the gallant Moore triumphantly maintained nimselt for fifty seven days, against ten times his force. Tne enemy'sj force included three armed steam ?mb; and he had uoihing but sail vessels; yet with the^e odds ug <iust him, Commodore Moore beat otf (he enemy, and held the command of Campeachy, which he telieved Irom a seven months' blockade. On another occasion he penetrated a Mexicm river, and levied such a contribution trom the authorities s enabl d him to supply and tranquillize his sea^ men, to whom the government was in arrears t.f wages The charge ot in> Ificiency, therefore, can not be laid against those otti^ere; nei her can it be said they have been dismueed the Textn service, tor the contrary is expressly the case. L-ast ot all can it be truly said, that Texas has no part or inter est in tne c mmon navy, or that her own faithful servants have not the first und only right to repre sent that interest Montgomery.

Mart of the Exprtn?Exportation of Jack*?foliti cal Movimentt?The Prospects?The Congrtttion at Herald Your late victory over the combined newspaper , presses of Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Baltimore, which undertook to express the newshy the steamer " Cambria" to your city, from Halifax, i via the Bay of Fuody and Portland, haa excited an im- | mense sensation, even in this remote corner of the "Ore. ; nite State." From the time that it was known that your 1 messenger left Boston only one hour after the agtent for the combined establishments,every one was on theyui vice to learn which reached New Yoik flist; and gioat was the gratification o the frienJs of individusl enterprise to leain that the " Napoleon of the Press" had coma off the conqueror by seven hours. The town of New l.ondon, from which 1 write you, ; sir, is somewhat noted tor the raising of jackasses and mules, which our breeders have been in tho habit of ox porting to the West In Jits for a ma ket. Among the changes in the British tariff, which Sir Robert Peel has recently proposed, I notice that these animals are hereaf ter to t>e admitted duty free. If this change is carried into effect, we mule breeders here in New London, will, at no cirtant day, look to England for an increased de mand in ouriioe of business?consequently, we are de sirous of improving our stock as much as possible; and j in this view, it has occurred to us that if we procure one or two of the New York joefrs who were recently '? connected with the extra trdinary over-land express I Irons Halifax, it would be much tor our advantage.

Hale has , succeeded tbu? far in preventing an election, having run ! against the regnlar nominees of the democratic and 1 wnig parties, Messrs. Woodbury and Goodwin. At the last special election, in November, Mr. Woodbury want 1 oJ about 1 100 of a majority. Hale ha* her n supported 1 by the aboiitionisls, and a'portion ol the democrats. In , November he received about 9,000 votes, or a little more than oue-tourth of the whole number, having increased , his vote some 2 000 or 3 000 over a previous trial iu Sep- ; L-mber. His party, in connexion with the abolitionists (liberty party,) bave recently organised themselves for j the State election in March, and nominated the same candidate for Governor?N. 8. Berry of Hebron. The democrats have in nomination, lor Governor, Jared W. Williams, oi Lancaster; and tne whigs, Gen. A. Colbv, of thia town. In point of ability, Geo. C. is ptobably the most suitable candidate of the three Mr. Hale is now "stumping" it through our huge snow drills, and addressing the people?some times | twice on the same day?in every section of the State. i II lor notbirg else, he deserves to be elected for his en- i i ergy aud peneverauce. in which he has never been J equalled by any of our N.'W Hampshire politicians. He ' and 'be whigs hope to be able to defeat an election of ? Governor by the people, which they will doubtless tf ? leel It will then depend upon the Legislature to elect i that functionary irom the two highest candidates-, and in ' case the whig* and Haleitee shall succeed in reluming a majority ot tbeir respective partizans to that body, tbey will, probably, eventually unite to cboosea Gover nor and U. 8 Senator?the lattet to serve for six years Irom March 4, 1347, in the place ol Hon Levi Woodhu I ry, who resigned last fall, the vacancy now being filled by Hon. B. W. Jennets. By a Legislature of the com plexion referred to, Gen. Colby, the whig candidate, (if he shall be returned us one of the two highast) will ? doubtless be elected Governor, and Mr. Hale United Statea Senator. 1 am happy to see that yon are about arranging a corps of reporter*, to report tho proceeding*, ol Con gress,which are also to uppear we-kly io a Con<rrstrom al HrroU.
