It was|ttrst started in the public press, by the London Timet, a print bitterly opposed to free institutions, and has since been sustained by the leading men of France, and by several journals in Spain, and discussed among the Mexican people themselves, led of! by La Tiempo in the city of Mexico. One party in that unhappy country, is desirous of maintaining the existing form ot government; the organs of this party are the Memorial Hittorico and other papers. The other aide is principally sustained by the Tiempo, which contends that the only hope for the peace, welfare, and satety of the country, is the immediate adoption of a system resembling, in its fundamental principles, the plan ot Ignala. The prominent features of this celebrated plan, are the following, which We find in the Picayune:? Ast.4 The Government shall be a Constitutional Monarchy. Aar. S. HI* Majesty Ferdinand VII. ehall be invited to the throne of tbe Empire, and in caaa ot his refusal, tha Infantes Don Carlos and Don Francisce de Paula. Abt. P. Should His Majesty Ferdinand VII. and his august brothers, decline the invitation, the nation is at liberty to invite to the imperial throne any member ol reigning famhiee whoa it may select. It is not to be denied that, distracted as Mexico is with the dissensions of factious and revenge ful chieftains, and the savage outbreaks of a turbu lent people, she can never find peace, save in the embrace of our Union, or the iron bands of an ab solute monarchy. This latter alternative our govern ment can never permit, after the protests which;Mr. Madison and Mr. Polk have promulgated to the world againat all European interference in the af fairs of this continent; and even if such indiffer ence were to be manifested by the administration, tbe people at large would naver submit to it, but ra ther conquer Mexico by emigration, and forcibly merge it into our territories than allow a foreign Prince to erect a throne on any part of North Ame rica. One monarchy is enough on this continent. There can be no doubt that monarchy would be more beneficial to Mexico than the present state ot things; but we cannot be to regardless ot our own safety as to permit monarchy to be established there. The real question, then, lor the Mexicans to decide, is whether they will have anarchy, or annexation to the United States. There are many men of great intelligence and'sound republican principles in Mex. ico, who ardently desire annexation to this country, and they will probably be gratified. If not all at once, it is likely to be one province this year, and another next, until the whole i s within our af fectionate embrvte. Axmino America?Arming the country ia like building up a atrong embankment against aome powerful and mighty river, which might otherwise break loose and spread over the country, carrying desolation wherever ti went, and sweeping olT houses, cattle, barns, fields, and human beings. Arming the country is not war?it is literally a prophylacttrie?that is, a guard and preventive of war. For nations are like in dividuals?they do not attack the strong and secure; they tear them, and keep aloof, watching for a weak point before they will venture to attack them. Therefore, arming the country is truly considered much more a symptom and guaranty of peace than it is a signal or demonstration of war. Again: Arming the country will be a benefit to the country, because it will set in motion the arms of the country?the strong, sinewy arms of our nu merous mechanics and workmen, who have been ; for some time idle in our navy and ship yards, in no very desirable " inactivity." Arming the coun try produces all the good which can result from war, without any sf its evils. It gives employment to merchants, mechanics, engineers, and all classes of men. It seta in motion an immense capital, which is made to flow in the only healthy channel in which capital can flow, and that is, the employ ment of labor. In all points of view, arming the country is a good thing. We might enlarge the view, and fill a volume with the enumeration of its good effects; but we abstain, taking it for granted now, as proved enough. Since, then, arming the country ia ia every aspect s good and necessary measure, at all times?but most especially at this time, when other nations are armed and have been arming, rap a pif?we are glad to perceive that Congress is about to realise in practice what we have shown above in theory to be so desirable. The following is, as far as at pre sent can be understood, the official estimate of the proposed " arming" measure. In men, it is proposed to augment the navy by an addition of 36,800 sailors. The expenditure to be made to carry out this increase, and other naval enlargements, $20,000,000. The increase of vessels in commission is estimated at the following ratio:? Steamers 40 Frigates 40 Sloops of War 80 Making an increase of fifty-eight vessels of war I At the same time the Secretary of War has furnish ed his estimate, making an increase in the army to the amount of 60,000 men. These are measures which the Htrald specifically and expressly recommended six months ago. We rejoice in it. First?because it will keep of! war. Second?because it will give activity and employ ment to an immense moss ot active slumbering labor. Third?because it will place us on a level as a steam naval power with all other nations. Fourth?because it will countervail the correspond ing preparations of the British. Fifth?because all the money thus expended will go from a compara tive state of inertia, to act as the means of spread ing comfort, abundance, cheerfulness and plenty to numberless families, houses, mechanics, and work men of all classes, throughout the whole extent of our country. This great measure, therefore, of arming Ameri ca, U properly managed, will be of great benefit to the laboring portion ot the people. Wantsb ?Two smart intelligent men, who are in want of steady employment, for one year, are re quested to apply immediately to the Mayoralty No minating Committeea, at Tammany Hall, and the whig head quarters. None need apply who are in capable of keeping the streets clean. Thoae who h*ve been engaged in excavating canals and hills forrailroai tracks, would be preferred. References exchanged on the 14th of next month. Affairs in Canada ?Mince the reception of the Governor General's message, public attention has been somewhat directed to the British province, at tha North. The ill-feeling produced by the new commercial syatem of Great Britain, will ultimately have its proper effect in that quarter ; and the orga nisation of the militia, throughout the province, having reference to anticipated war with the United States, will probably have ita effect in Washington. Now that Canada ia being released from lhe lcy em brace of wirter, we can look foi ward for nf w" from 'hat part of ,he world, w?ho? "hill. Maii. Aoxnts?We are d to Mr S' Brown, the Northern mail agen^*, AJbMjr rOV"?:^U ? M 4 o'clock The community were astonished yesterday, on the receipt of the intelligence that Albeit J Tirrell^ whose trial for the murder ol Maria Ann Bicktordt at Boston, occupied their attention for some days back, bad been seqii.ted by the jury. We saw every where little knots of people talking the matter over ; and there was but one opinion, and that was, that it was a moat extraordinary verdict. There never was, in the history of crime, in the mmds of many, a clearer case of cool, premeditated, and de liberate murder, perpetrated by an abandoned and profligate man. The circumstances of the case are briefly these: Tirrell and the victim were i*raona of abandoned character. One was living apart from his wife, and the other froin her husband, and both had been co habiting in adultery for a long time previous to the murder. Alter continuing in this adulterous con nection tor some time, and travelling over the coun try, we find them in a house in Boston, where Maria Ann Bickford was murdered. They had retired for the night; the inmates of the house bad discovered a fire in the chamber, and heard the footsteps of Borne person escaping. After ex tinguishing the fire, they found the body of Maria Ann .Bickford partially burned, and her throat cut in an awful manner. On making further search, several articles ol apf arel belonging to Tirrell were found, and the wash basin showed evidence of some person, whose hands had been bloody, hav ing washed in it. Soon alter the discovery ol the fire, Tirrell was seeH in another part of the city, endeavoring to hire a conveyance to take him out of town aa soon aa possible. Suspicion immediately fastened on Tirrell as the murderer; officers were in pursuit of him, but he effected hie escape to New Orleans, where he was arrested and brought back to Boston for trial. The defendant engaged most eminent counsel, and pleaded a novel delenoa. The first plea was that the victim committed suicide; and secondly, that Tirrell was a somnambulist from his youth? and if he really committed the murder, he did it while he waa not in hie right mind, or while he tvat asleep. The trial proceeded, and the Common wealth proved in the minds of hundreds, the tact of Tirrell's being the murderer, beyond the possibility of a doubt; and yet, the jury, to the astonishment of a vast number of the moral people of Boston, ! brought in a verdict of not guilty. That portion of the defence about somnambulism is the greatest piece of humbug we have ever heard of; and the | very fact of such a defence being put in, is pretty | strong proof that it was made use of in place ol a better. Aa to the idea of the woman having com mitted suicide, it is preposterous, and too flimsy to admit of a moment's argument. The jury, we be lieve, based their decision on the ground that it was sell-murder; but it puzzles us to see how they could possibly arrive at such a conclusion. The apparel and cane of the prisoner were found in the room; and that, with the circumstance of the wash bowl, and the prisoner's subsequent flight and es cape when pursued by the officera of justice, forbids such a supposition. We therefore consider the whole defence, and the verdict, as most extraordi- , nary in every point of view. It will afford a terri ble precedent. It is a mockery of all law and jus- ] tice ; and is a direct inducement for a repetition of the crime. What security have the citizensof Mas sachusetts for their lives and property, when an abandoned villain can enter a house, murder his I victim, and employ counsel whose ingenuity and skill will work out his acquittal, by making up a story of somnambulism, or some other humbugl We have, in this, a precedent that will be followed in the same manner that the plea of insanity was, for years to come. Every murder- | er will, hereafter, plead somnambulism as an ex cuse, or some other equally shallow defence, which the fertile ingenuity of counsel may coin, if he be fortunate enough to be tried in Boston. He may snap his finger at the law and judge, and repeat his crime. All that is necessary, is to get his mo ther, or grandmother, to prove that he got up and walked in his sleep, when he was young, and made a noise resembling, no matter what, as if he was i hall-strangled, and a jury will acquit him. For, not withstanding the rumor that the jury based their decision altogether on the supposition that the un fortunate woman committed suicide, we are dis posed to think that the plea ol somnambulism had , its effect upon their minds, and they let it influ ence their judgment. We have never heard so universal a condemna tion as there is of the verdict of the jury in this case, since the time of the Ellen Jewett tragedy in this city, to which this case was similar in every res pect. In that case, the victim was likewise a prosti tute. Alter the crime of murder was committed, the crime of arson was added, as it was in this case, and the verdict was the same. We remember well the outcry that it caused in Boston, and the sensation it produced in this city. Public opinion here condemned the jury in unmeasured terms; but the press and people of Boston were vociferous in denouncing it for months afterwards. But we have now an evidence of a still greater outrage being committed in Boston on the laws of the Lcom monwealth. We had no such plea as somnambulism raised on the part of Robinson, neither was an at tempt made to make out a case of suicide. It was reserved for the city of Boston, whose cor poration laws will not allow a man to earn an hon est living by selling a newspaper on Sunday?nor perm't a man to smoke a eegar in the streets with impunity?to get up this tarce and carry it out. What can be said now of the morals of that city, whose citizens have been guilty of such a shameful disregard of their laws, as to permit a?vagabond like Tirrell to go uowhipt of justice, for committing a crime ol the deepest and blackest dye, with pre meditation, and under the most revolting circum stances 1 Wucu During the Past Year.?The past year has been one in which more American vessels have been wrecked, than any other one during the last forty years. Among the most prominent of these, have been the Henry Clay, the John Mintarn, the New Jersey, Hilah, Sophia, and Hamlet. In ad* dition to these, a large number of other vessels, of all descriptions, have met with the same unfortunate calamity. The loss of life and property in these wrecks has cast gloom over many hearts, and darkened, for a time, the prospects of the enterprising owners.? Within the year past, the loss of property, by wreck of American vessels alone, has been over a million of dollars. But the indomitable enterprise of the American character is not to be broken, even by winds and waves, but pushes triumphantly against all opposing forces. The marine lists, however, have been filled with melancholy details, sending pang after pang to many a heart. Tna Charter Election?This election takes place in about two weeks, and all that is now want ed to complete the arrangements, are two candi dates for the democratic and whig mayorality tick ets. Great efforts have been made to secure these candidates, but as yet, without success We are in hopes that in this week, (be nominations will be offered to the public. Highway Robbery and Murder ?A nun aged about fitty years, from East Davenport, Delaware county, by ths name of Sournbargsr, (Suttenberg, tho nam* is commonly pronounced) wa? murdered on the night of the 34th in?t., about one mile west of the Vly, in the town of Middlebutgh. Schoharie county He was found on the following morning, nearly naked, sod bav ing a stab in hii breeat. end throat cut, aleo bis hand waa cut, si if he had attempted to grasp the fatal blade. The murderer supposed to ho John Burnett, ? man of about 31 years of age. and ol bad reputation, who lives in the vicinity of the Vly. He left Trait's tavern, which is some three miles distant, during the afternoon of the 3Mh m-t, in company with deceased, and was eeen with him a little before dark, only 10 or 34 rode from the place Where the murder wee committed. A dirk knife, with some blood on it, wae found on Burnett when arretted, on the 3Mb also a tobacco bos, pair of mitten* and pook ! at book, which Mournbergsr hed in bis possession on i His previous day.-JOmf drpa 4 mm# I Ym>v V M ieiinent lately m tbe medical world, m regard to a National Convention, which in to be held in thia city, in the month of May next. The ostenaible purpoae for which thia convention ia to be assem bled, ia to endeavor to devise m ana for the raising of the standard of medical education in thia coun try, which the gentlemen who originated tbe call for the meeting, complain of being at a very low ebb. The proposed convention is to be composed of delegates from all the medioal colleges in the United States; and it appears that several ot them have al ready responded to the call, and will be in attend ance at the appointed time. The result of this convention will be a matter of considerable interest to the profession at large; and whether the standard of medical education be raised or not, we trust they will look into many ot the abuses to which the profession is now subjected, and devise Borne means to curb the insolence of the nu merous quacks that now prey upon the community. Regarding the matter of education, that will be pro bably quits a matter of dispute; the requisites for the attainment of a diploma in most of our medical col leges now is, the student having studied medicine three years, and having, during that time, attended two full courses of lectures at some medical college; if, at the end of that time, he can pass a satisfactory examination before the facultv of the college that he has attended, he is invested with the degree of M. D., and duly licensed to practice. In some ot the States?this one among the number?the practice of medidine is open to every one?that is, the law will authorise any one to collect fees for advice given or surgical services performed. In other States the ma% who has invested his time and money in studying his profession, and has obtained his diploma, is the only one who can, by law, collect his fees. Thus, t is fair to presume that those who, in this State, go to the ex(>ense of a regular medical education, do so with the purest motives; as, did they feel inclined, the law of the land would justify them in practicing without submitting to this ordeal. A great deal might be said, nevertheless, about the acquirements necessary to obtain a diploma, and the necessity or not of increasing them; but we think the first step towards doing so will be to ob tain legislative protection to those who are bonafide students?otherwise an unnecessarily rigid standard might have the effect of driving many into the ranks of empiricism who would otherwise enter into the ranks in the regular manner. Theatricals, Pit* Tiicathe.?"Ls Braaseur ds Preston," the beau tiful comic opera by Adam, will be performed at tha Park this evening,for the last tima but ona. Tha Seguin trtupe have bean eminently ?uccaMiol during their engage ment, and tha musical Hilt have crowded tha house nightly.

The Albany Mlat, ol the 27ih io?t, ??y? a email party I of Koglwh emigrant*arrived from Mew York, thi* morn inc. on their route Wait. They ware the flret which bare aiiivcd here tbi? MNMb One ot the party UMll that a very large number oi lamiile* are preparing to emigrate i to tide oca u try taring the present year. j are ot the 7th tut. From private correspondence, we have a confirmation of the fact, already in the Herald, oi a revolution having broken oat in the part of the inland under the dominion of the negroes. It appeui that the great expedition which had been so long preparing againat the Dominicans by President Pierrot, was not generally popular: probably there was a jealousy that these great forces would be used u a means ot increasing the power 1 , ot Pierrot, and ot adding strength to a despotism already too great. Be this as it may, just when the expedition was preparing to be put in motion, and the troops from various quarters had received orders io concentrate at the poiut from whence it was to march, the troops under the command of General j St. Louis refused to obey. The msny disasters which have happened to the Haytien troops in this war, and the uniform succession ot detents which has lollowed every encounter with the Dominicans, very probably rendered the troops fearful and un willing to meet any more an enemy who beat them 1 every time ihey fought together. This is very likely, as it is characteristic of ihe black race, to be as pusillanimous and cowardly in failure, as they are boastlul and haughty in success. Our accounts go on to state that the troops, having refused to obey the orders to march, then broke out into open mutiny and revolution. A deputation from the army was despatched to Gen. Riche, at au to call upon him to take up*n him sell the Presidency, and to depose President Pierrot. Ttius, it will appear that the black governmenr is a pure military despotism, and that the chieftain who rules over this people, is the soldier, whoever he may be, whom the black praetorian troops choose to select for that office! Such a state of things does not deserve the name of civil or civilized govern ment. On receivmg these offers, General Richo, after some preliminary hesitation, and alter other deputa tions Irom the troops at other quarters had joined in the same demand, consented to place htmsvlf at the head ol the insurgents; and as the first step in the > deposition of the tyrant Pierrot, published a rutini- j lesto addressed to the army and people, in which he declared himsell President. Tne accounts, subse- i quent to this event, are contradictory, and we await ' daily the receipt ol intelligence which may be relied upon. One account represents President Pierrot advancing agamst the literally soi-dimnt President Kiche, with a considerable body of faithful troops ; other accounts say that Pierrot has abandoned the held, and peaceably resigned his high office to to Kiche. He will not leave many regrets behind, for he never was popular, and hia course and con- I duct has been self-conceited, tyrannical and imperi- I ous. Should he succeed in leading any troopa 1 against Riche, there is every reason to believe ' woul<^ aband0I> his cause at the first encounter. The new and self-created President Riche, is a black, about 70 years of age. During the reign of the black Emperor Christophe, Riche was made a baron by his black Imperial Mujesty, and command ed the guard at the time ot his death. Mkeida dk Yucatan, March 11,1846. The Emma, Capt. Wait, from Maracaibo, bound to New York, having dropped anchor at the port, (Sisal) I seize the opportunity of forwarding you items of transactions in this part of the world. The people are all pretty quiet here since the pro nunciamento against Mexico, in January last There are two parties at pressnt in the field?one to patch up j the difficulties with Mexico at all hezardt,being compos* ed principally of Mexican citizens, whose interests era bound with the well being of the republic. The other, j the revolutionary party, who took the strong stand ?gainst Mexico in '4$, and who would rather see the pe ninsula in league with the kingdom of the devil than
with that of the treacherous ladronta Mtticanee. The ; Sovernment (provisional) has taken no measure towards ! ie formation of a nsw stale of things, more than to call 1 a Congress of the departments, to meet the ensuing 1 month. The fact ie they know not hardly bow to act, and : do not wish to commit themselves until they beer wbat 1 action has been taken upon the state of their affaire by ' the new central government (that of Peredest. In case the treaty of '43 is secured to them, they can ask no more, and have not t hair to cavil for. Some curious report* have recently been circulated here, which iu themselves, and the observation! incident thereon, would make ? stoic iangh. I was told by the editor of the official organ here, a few day* since, that news had bean received by w?y of New Orleans that a resolution was up before tne House at Washington to receive Yuca tan into the Uniou. ''Would to God," was the ejacu lation of most who epoke of the matter. "What good would that do ue V said a barefaced collegian of eigh teen, lighting a pura. "What good I" says the ortcle of the party, a young warehouseman who had made a two month's trip to New Yoik, and was allowed to know something of the matter: "what good would it not do as, chata-, why you'd see our Irdien fishing villages turned into porta of entry; our rich savannas thronged with a hardy race of agriculturists; our level country filled with railroads and canals; you'd see more enterprise and prosperity in five years than your fatheis have seen since Montejo first put foot upon the sands of Cam pecbe." There wee some talk here, not lour ago, of putting themseivai under the protection of Spain, a movement got np by the Spanish residents (Gacbupias) bat the li beraitsts swop knocked thet on the head. Colonel Nigra, of tha Engineer Corps, set out some fourteen days since, 'o fortify La Die del Carman Lagu na j that being the most important, a* well a* tha most insecure, fortress in the Peninsula. With this exception wo bavo neither war nor preparations for war. There have been eoene rumors afloat .bare, that 8anta Anna would probably pay ue a vieit, a* a private citizen, of course,which Yucatan,by her constitutions, could not refute. The rumor was undoubtedly put out as a feel er, for there are many Yucatacoa, who would receive him with open arm*, and open purses, especially the Central party.
