Whereas, the Congress of the United States, by virtue of the constitutional authority vested in them, have declared by their act, hearing date this day, that " by the net of the Republic of Mexico, a state of war exists between that government and the United States:" Now, therefore, I, James K. Polk, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim to idl whom it may concern ; and I do specially enjoin on all persons holding otliees, civil or mili tary, under the authority of the United States, that they be vigilant and zealous in discharging the du ties respectively incident thereto. And I do more over exhort all the good people of the United States, as ther love their country, as they feel the wrong* which have forced on them the last resort of injured nations, and as they consult the lxsst means under the blessing of Divine Providence of abridging its calnmaties, that they exert them selves in preserving order, in promoting concord, in maintaining the authority and the efficacy of the laws, and in supporting and invigorating all the measures which may be adopted by the constituted authorities for attaining a speedy, a just, and an honorable pence. In testimony whereof", 1 have hereunto set my hand, and caused the seal of the United States to he affixed to these presents. In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand, and caused the seal of the United Stales to be affixed to these presents.? Done at the City of Washington, this thir [l. s.J teenth day of May, one thousand eight hundred and forty-six, atid of the Inde pendence of'the I 11 ited States the seven tieth. By the President, JAMES K. POLK. Jambs Bucuanan, Secretary of State. The War with Mexico, The Rubicon is passed ! The deed is done! We nf*> now at war witli.Mexico, under all the forms of 'the constitution. The President by pro clamation, and both Houses of Congress have, by an overwhelming majority?only sixteen votes in the negative, and these all nig gcrism?declared in favor of recognising a a war against Mexico; and in providing means for its energetic prosecution. These means are ample. By the laws already passed, the regular nr. y is increased to about fifteen thousand men, t'ie speciid war bill authorises an additional fifty thou*:nd wen, to be placed nt the disposal of the P-esident. Ten millions of dollars, ns the first ir '?it, are appropriated by law to the pay ie troops. But this is merely the begin ning of the disbursements. The naval force is in erea-',', n an equal ratio. The President is au thr.:./xd to complete all the public vessels now legali7' '' by law, and also to purchase and char ter an additional number of merchant vessels, all oftwhicb will, probably, increase the navy, in men alone, from eight thousand?its present num ber?to about twenty thousand. We will then have a land force of sixty-five thousand men in the field, and a naval force of twenty thousand ; all of which are called into action by the American govern ment to carry on successfully, energetically, nnd promptly, the war against the military usurpers of beautiful, glorious Mexico. Whatever errors may have Iteen committed by die Executive, in the preliminary steps, we trust and hope they will l?e forgotten. Let us have pa tience. If the President and his Cabinet have the tnlent and energy necessary for their present posi tion, they have now the power, by prosecuting this war successfully to an honorable and sjrnedy termination, to entitle themselves to the gratitude of the republic. Let us give them every chance to retrieve their characters. Let us sink all ques tions of division, throughout the extent of this vnst republic, in the prosecution of this war. There are some symptoms of opposition, even in Wash ington, among the wliigs, ami also among the abo litionists. The united voice of the American peo ple ought to rise up in indignation at the slightest symptom of opposition to the prompt carrying on and termination of this war?for the obtaining of our just rights?our just satisfaction, from the mili tary tyrants of Mexico. Towards the Mexican people as republicans, as Christians, the people of the United States ran entertain nothing but the most fraternal feelings of consanguinity, and the common purposes of a common destiny. We sym pathised with their first efforts for independence. We recognized their existenac as a republic?we have treated them with forl>earance, and we look upon them as brothers still; but towards their mi litary dictators, influenced by Europcnn intrigue, nnd animated by foreign subsidies, we trust that this war will l>e prosecuted with deci ? on, from one end of the republic to the other. There can be no doubt that France and England, are at the bottom of this aggressive move ment on the part of Mexico, which has led to the !? , " ,lePlor?H- events on the Rio Grande. We < heir intrigue* in diplomacy on the annexa t . '"n ' , eXll!'? un<*President and die Cabinet iave talent fit for rlie.r position, they havo dm means and tin- elements jn their power to defeat and avenge the disasters on die Kio Grande. Yet it is deplorable, in the commencement ofthw crisis, to see symptoms of backwardness in cer tain members of Congress, and opposition in cer tain journals, almost amounting to treason to the the hrst principles ol liberty and independence. W e make no war on the Mexican people. It i 011 their tyrants, their military usurpers, the agents Ol foreign gold, and the intriguers of foreign cabi nets that we war against. Let us, therefore, in all the departments of the American government and throughout die whole confederacy, strike such .1 blow on the Rio Grande, up to the city of Mexi co itself, as will teach foreign powers to dread the tree people of this republic. We may settle the Oregon question by the energetic prosecution ol the Mexican war. Some, indeed, suppose Uiat this collision, as it is called, will be soon settled. We do not so look on the matter. We believe the arrangements e been made with design to protract this war and to harrajs the country with a guerrilla war' lure on our borders. Let our government look to it .it once and call out all our energies,to put it down. J he effect of a short war, a decisive war, will be ike a shock ol electricity on the prosperity of this nation, and on the moral mind of Europe. A ong war will only cause divisions among the American people?leading to bankruptcies, re vulsions, suspensions of specie payments by the banks, the establishment of a new national bank and a variety of other disastrous evils, incalcu lable at this moment. Let the gjfud army of o.>,0()0 men be divided at once into* wo great di visions Let one be sent to the Rio Grande, and die other to the city of Mexico, by the way of antii Fe. Let our whole sea coast be protected with asufficient naval force, under the authority of the acts now passed, to punish and prevent pri vateering, if it should be attempted, under the Mexican ling. The President and the Cabinet have now a chance?a glorious and brilliant ehancc-to prove the mettle of which they are composed. They have heretofore conducted their administration with doubt, hesitancy, secrecy, a spirit of contra diction, which have divided their friends and dis gusted their supporters. Let them now have fair play. Let them retrieve their character if they can. Go ahead. Mexican Pbivateeks.?We have had a pam phlet put in our hands, containing several able arti cles from the pen of Alansou Nash, Esq., of diis city, on the subject of piracy and privateering, t roin one of these articles we learn that by the t1 urticle of the treaty between the United States and the government of Central America, made 1'ccember 5, 1825, it is declared that whenever one of the contracting powers shall be engaged in war with another State, no citizen of die other contracting party shall accept a commission or let ter of marque for the purpose of assisting or co operating in hostilities with the enemy against the party at war, under pain of being treated as a pi rate. The same provision is contained in the treaty between the United States and Sweden made June 13, 1839; also in the treaty widi Co-' luinbia, Venezuela, Brazil, the Nedierlands r ranee, fflfe Peruvian and Bolivian confede rations, Chili, Spain, Denmark, France, Prussia, England, and most other continental nations in Europe. By this, then, it would appear, notwidistanding the decla rations and threats of Almonte, when he was in this country, that the Mexican government can inflict only a comparatively slight amount of injury upon our commercial interests. Mexico has but a very diminutive amount of aoimn?r?? As almost the whole world are bound by treaty with the United States not to permit their subjects or citizens to accept ofletters of marque from any nation at war with us, of Mexico, herself, cannot do much damage. We may be obliged to make some terrible examples, and inflict terrible vengeance on those who oppose those treaties, for no doubt there will be some foolhardy enough to privateer against us, who are bound by treaty not to accept letters ol marque. If they do so, however, they do it with full knowledge of the penalty that will be inflicted uj>on them, viz: that of being treated and punished as pirates. While on this subject, it may be as well to refer to the recent action of the underwriters of this city. They have now determined to charge j?er j cent premium, to ports in the Gulf of Mexico, in- j suiing against all risks. With the "war clause" 'nserted in their policies, they insure for U per ' cent. This is the last humbug to catch the nnw ary.? With the hundreds of millions which they have' at risk?where they are liable to lost by capture they will be ruined within the first month if die privateers should commence their depredations ; and those who now pay 4* per cent, will be no more sale than those insured months since at the ordinary premium. They will all become credi tors to the companies, and may, irthey are lucky be enabled, after years of delay, to collect a few dollars from the general wreck. Save your pre miums, and do not suffer the imposition to l>c practiced. We are pleased to learn that Messrs. Grinned, .Mm turn & Co., have determined to armjtheir pack et ship Henry Clay for her next voyage to Liver pool. Many others join in diis precaution. This is judicious ; for a long thirty-two pounder, amid ships, is the best "war clause" that can be insert cd as, notwithstanding treaties and laws, and the consequent danger of hanging, money will as t rt its control, and mnumerableprivateers will in est every sea. A system of espionage will be adopted so that every valuable ship will be way laid, and each of our boasted companies of in Mirers, will suddenly become "a collapsed case." Mfxican Prkparatioxs. We are informed, from Llfn ? ?ource, that within the last year and a half, or two years, the Mexican government has been receiving, from time to time, schooners powder, cannon and ball from the city of New \ork. Within this period there have been built by our shipmasters, twelve strong schooners, ?f sufficient strengdi and capacity to act as priva tes or vessels of war. These vessels were built j wi?h an eye to strength, combined with swiftness of sailing. These vessels were despatched to . lexico under American colors and under the captainship ol Americans, from time to time, as they were built, and were paid for by an extensive Mexican house in this city. Each of these vZ). carried, likewise, from eight to ten tons of gunpow der as cargo, and likewise a number of guns, amounting to one hundred and eighty in all' which were cast in a foundry in this city, and proved by an American of skill in such matters. At one time, it is said, the Mexican government were indebted to this Mexican liotise in half a mil lion of dollars, for these supplies. A shipmaster lately from Vera Cruz, reports that when he was there he inspected the castle of St. Juan de Ulloa ?mil saw a cannon of 182 pounds calibre, which, With forty or fifty Paixhan guns, arc now mount ed on that fortress. The beach where the French landed is likewise completely fortified. We have ,hc nnme, lu,d dates for aU dicsc facts. which we 'uppressjor the present. s?nAw ?Th^truU''K TRIAL or Davis ner Patnxent, on the^rCe JTfT,^ ,h?J?bo?' gaged in the slave trade?which luu ~? . i ein" attention of the U.

A mJU >* MUMl was then entered in the case of Thoma*I I ADJOURNMENT f>K THE LaaiSLATUU.-?The Le. ; Relative representatives of the people of the Em pire Suite, adjourned medie on the 18th instant, ami bent their ways to their respective homes. The session continued one hundred and twenty l eight days, and the whole number of bills passed was three hundred nnd thirty-seven, making an average of two bills anil a fraction passed each day. The last lew hours of the session were marked with some excitement, growing out of the war in Mexico. Joint resolutions were introduced into I the Assembly authorizing the Governor to call into , requisition the services of fifty thousand volunteers, and appropriating the sum of one hundred thou sand dollars for die exigency. These resolutions were passed almost unanimously in the House, but the Senate adjourned without acting upon them. Among the most prominent of the bills passed by this Legislature, were the bills authorizing the New ^ ?rk and Erie Railroad Company to lay a part of their track in the State of Pennsylvania, I <>ri the line of the Delaware river ; an act to au , Hiorize the construction of a railroad from New j York to Albany ; an act to abolish distress for reni? I and to tax the rents of landlords; and likewise an j act virtually emancipating the people from the | oppression of the odious militia laws. Each one of these laws is of an im|>ortant nature, and will affect the interests of the people of this State to a great degree. The (u tjabolishing distress for rent was carried, , through the influence of anti-rentism; the act ; concerning the militia laws cuts up the oppression I under which the people have groaned so long, J and deprives the famous Mr. Gulick of the j greater portion of his: fees. Othello's neeu j patron is (virtually) gone. Alas! poor Gulick! : We pity your fate; but we fear there are but few j will join us in commisserating thy fallen condi I 'ion. By this law, the fees for non-attending mili- ' tia trainings are reduced to seventy-five eents a year, and the fees collected in this way will go to the support and encouragement of volunteer and independent corps. We congratulate the people of this State, and more especially the citizens ol this city, on the ! partial reform that this bill will make.. It is not, ? to be sure, as thorough as we have wanted; but ! j half a loaf is better than no bread. It will, at all events, excuse military service, on paying seventy- ' j five cents a year. And this fine will be paid more ? readily, when it is known that, instead of its be j ing expended as heretofore, in providing oyster j suppers, &c., &c., for the epauletted coxcombs who have tortured our citizens to death with their j courts martial, it will be disposed of in a way that will be satisfactory to all concerned. Oitr Navy and its Position.?The Secretary of the Navy will find himselftrammelled.in procuring a sufficient number of seamen for the present I emergency. Our sailors, the few we have of them, are patriotic, and will join the fight with alacrity, hut tliey are too scarce. We have offi cers in abundance, but seaman for the Navy have never been encouraged properly. The pay is too small, and there is no chance for a talented man to obtain a post on the quarter deck, if he com menced among those who have been so zealous as to ship as a sailor boy. We hnve brave offi cers, and we would not disparage them, for time must show that they will not lose character by lying broadside to broadside with any in the world, in a war or peace ; but we have too much exclusivencss?too little of reward for real merit. What to the nation is the school for middies at Annapolis t Is our navy to be mamied with mid shipmen 1 Or ought we not, rather, to adopt the really republican plan, of throwing plebeians and j aristocrats into one great national mill, from whence to grind out our future oontmodores and j common sailors, according to real merit. Mr. Secretary Bancroft bestows too much care upon the " sprigs" nt Annapolis, and too litde upon the ?' bone and sinew," for a good republican-and we fear that the day is not far distant, when the ' country will pay for this unfortunate discovery, j | By the way, what has become of Tom Goin's Na- ' j val School 1 It was established iu 1837, and nine I years should have turned out for us, ut least 9,000 | able bodied, educated American seainan 7 Who murdered this inestimable plan 1 Give us his name. Musical. Movements.?Musical affairs are be j ginning to look up. During the last six months they have been in a state of abeyance. Last fall, De Meyer, Templeton, and Madame Pico, after successful and brilliant careers, left us for the sun ny south. Since then, up to the recent concert of Madame Pico, there has been no successful effort to enliven the musical world, and no great fash ionable excitement. Attempts liave been made, during the interval, by many persons, to give con certs, but they only reminded ns of the negro cari catures of the great men of past times, and only served to provoke ridicule and laughter. Musical matters seem now to spring forth with the buds of the season, and to keep time with the melody of the forest. Madame Pico's concert was most br 1 liantly attended. Templeton, we believe, has arrived in the city | from a most successful tour in the South and West, j and will be ready to give a series of musical en tertainments in a few days. His re-appearance j will cause some stir among those persons who I Mrivc to fasten, for their own venal purposes, i upon every professional character that appears ! amongst us, and who begin as their supporters, j then as their private traducers, and lastly as their open foes?brutal, beastly and blackguard. There arc a few individuals in the lower ranks ' of literary and newspaper society, who have con. j ceived the idea of putting down Mr. Templeton on his re-appearance in New York, because he did not ! choose to comply with their impudent calls upon him for black mail, when he was here before. These persons have attempted, by writing news paper squibs, and depreciating reports, to injure him while on his Southern and Western tour, and to hold him up to contempt and derision. These attempts have been defeated by the good sense of the people who went to his concerts, paid their ? money, got the worth of it, and were satisfied. A ' grand demonstration is now to lie made, we un derstand, on his re-appearancc, to put him down. j Whether it will succeed, we do not know; but we 1 are inclined to think that if all the facts, and par ties, and circumstances in this attempt to put j down a distinguished vocalist, for the most das tardly motives, were known to the public, this at I tampt would not bo allowed to succeed, but rather | redound to his credit and popularity. We will j have more to say about this affair hereafter. Tiik War-Hawks in the Field.?The only war : riors yet in the field, in this latitude, are General I ; George Washington Dixon, of the Swainp, and ' Governor Gilbert Davis, of Coney Island. The ! first has had a large meeting amidst the butchers' | stalls and hucksters' tables in Centre market. The : (Governor of Coney Island, from his clam beds, ! has issued the following Proclamation?Official. HIOIII.Y IMPORTANT IK TRUE. I.

Bares, D.D., Acting Pacificator P* The Governor reserves the right to charge a moiety upon all vessels and cargoes. which is usually charged in Ua?i of war Blockade of the Forts of Mexico on ttw Pa ri tie by the (Jolted State* Sqmadron. By the Imrk Home, Captain Wingnte.from Ha vana, which port she It)ft on the 6th instant,. W received, at a late hour last night, our regular file* of the Diarin de la Hnbana to the 5th instant. A communication from Puerto Principe relates that a severe hail storm-paused over the district oj Seibalo on the evening of Good Frklay, and was of sueh destructive force as completely to destroy the tobacco which was growing in the fields, besides causing other heavy losses. The storm was hardly jierceived in the city. Besides the hail there was a tornado at the same time, which tore up trees by the root*, doing other considerable damage. Accounts from St. Jago de Cuba, state that thecolfre crop in that neighborhood has suf fered much from the cold rains, but it is confidently hoped it will revive in May. As to the tobacco crop, it is represented to be in the worst possible condition from tlie same causes. The Ditirio of the 3d inst., contains an extract from the Rcpublicano of Vera Cruz, giving an ac count of the ovents occurring in the neighborhood ofMatamoras. A detail is given in the Mexican Journal, of the interview between General Worth ami Sr. Vega, the second in command at Mata moras. The Mexican account says that General Worth attempted to persuade Sr. Vega that, al though the American army, by order of the Uni ted States government, had occupied the whole left bank of the ltio Grande, yet this ought not to be considered as an act of hostility ; for when the question of boundary should l>e arranged between the> two nations, the right to the country now oc cupied, would be open for settlement. St. Vega is said to have answered with the utmost indigna tion, saying that the Americans had not only ta ken Texas, but that now by this movement, they had seized upon parts of the department of New Leon, and Tainaulipas. In other respects, the account agrees with that published some days ago in the New York Htrald. Extracts were also given from the same journal, containing important news from the western or Pacific coasts of Mexico. This account states, that the American Govern ment was on the point of declaring a blockade of the whole Pacific coast, and that an American squadron had arrived for that purpose, and was anchored in the harbor of Mazatlan. The Vera Cruz journal,J under date of April 13th, states that the national vessel " Palomo" arrived at San Bias from Mazatlan, which place it left at nine o'clock at night, on the 28th, bringing the above alarming accounts. All the Mexican vessels in the jjorts of the Pacific had received orders to make their escape before the blockadc was en forced, as well as they could. The Palomo is re presented as having escaped out of |?ort at night, with great difficulty. The custom houses on the coast were engaged in packing up their archives to be removed to Rosario. This news, which is sworn to before the captain of the port of San Bias, has created a great excitement in Mexico. A severe thunder storm passed over Havana on

the 2d inst. Several persons were struck with the lightning; but no particular damage done. An American vessel, the Mary Boughton, was struck by the fluid, which entered the hold, tore up some planks, and passed out by the chain cable, with out doing further damage. Another extract from the Rcyublicnno of Vera Cruz, of 10th April, states on the authority of pri vate correspondence, that the Americans in New Mexico at a point called Venado Colorado, aided by many Cumanches were erecting fortifications and entrenchments, and making other military preparations. Native American Volunteers?Great and En thtaslastlc Meeting. In pursuance to a call, a meeting of native Ame ricans took place last evening nt their hall, cor- i ner of Broadway and Grand street, for the pur- j pose of enrolling themselves as a volunteer corps | to assist in defen^ng their country from fo reign invasion The meeting having been called to order by Col. James L. Hewett, Win. B. Cozsens, Esq., was called to the chair; on taking which he alluded to a meeting of a similar character that took place 34 yean ago, when he rallied with Col. Willet and other* in the Park, and there expressed their sentiments in favor of our country. It was a second war of our independence, and there was hut one heart and one voice, and that voice was to put away all distinction of party and go for our country. (Great cheers.) He then proceeded to state that if he understood the motive of tne meeting, it was to offer themselves In defence of all that is dear to an American citizen ; that the country had been in vaded by a foreign power, and therefore called upon them as patriots to come forward and enrol themselves under the glorious stars ami stripes of their country; that the Americans were the only nation who had dared to meet the British breast to breast. His remarks, which were truly patriotic, drew forth frequent and long con tinued bursts of applause. The call of the meeting having been read and approv ed, a committee of five persons was appointed to draft a series of resolutions, expressive of the views entertained by the meeting,who retired for that purpose; in the mean time, a loud call was made for Col. Jonn A. King, but that gentleman having necessarily left the city on busi ness. Mr. Burns cameTorward and made a patriotic, speech, ir Jacob L. Kf.wk, Esq., followed in an able and eloquent I address, calling upon his fellow-natives to be up and do ing ; announcing his own readiness to join the ranks and protect his native soil from foreign invasion. The committee appointed to draft a scries of resolutions, 1 returned to the room, and recommended that his Honor | the Mavor, ex-Mayors Win. H. Havemeyer, James Har* I per, and Aaron Clark, also Moses H. (Jrinnell.be appoint- ' cd a committee to receive the names of volunteers, fcc. After a few words from O. W. Dixon, the meeting ad journed in high spirits, and apparently ready for the fight The two committees of investigation into the charges of Mr. lngersnll against Mr. Webster, and of Mr. Schenck against Mr. Ingersolt, have both been in session, and the former with authority from the House to sit during its sessions. Owing to Mr. Wilmot's regretted illness, and Mr. Tettit's refusal to serve without a clerk, the former committee must have been retarded. But Mr. BrinkerhofTand Mr. Jones having been substituted for Mr. Wilmot and Mr. Tettit, the important business of that committee will probably proceed without further delay. The other committee, we understand, has examined Mr. Buchanan and Mr. Trist, and is prosecuting its inquiry. ? on t/nion, May 13. Police Intelligence.

Natftingfoam the "Army of Otr", iiion" ?ince Major Doan's arrival. with i requisition from < n. Taylor for four retfments from thia State, ana th< like number from ? each ofthe Stairs of Missianippi and Alabama. For three days past, great exertions have been made to fill the requisition by volunteers. Our Legislature acted nobly and promptly, in voting $100,000 to lit out the troops, and em|>owering the Governor to advance whatever further sum might lie needed to pay and equip the men, ke. One of the banks, also, tendered the loan of half a million; so the means were not wanting, you perceive. Ten dollars bounty, and ten dollars per month was offered. The drums were beat up and down the streets, (banner* waving,)'for recruits. Daily and nightly meetings were held, and patriotic speeches without num ber, freely ami generously contributed. Much liquor has been drank, much shouting and spouting enacted. And such "fAllenizing" stirring appeal* to the valor and devotedness of the " sovereign people" in the holy cause, has not been made since Jackson's "famous victory." The star spai^led banner haa been unfurled to the breeze ;l it waived from the mast-head, the flag-stall', and the house tops. The note of busy preparation was heard in every street, nook and corner. What a warlike city is this! Kor three whole days and nights has it been perfectly "Allenized;'' saltpetre brisk, and lead buoyant. The four regiments were thought to have been raised, and 16 generals, 44 colonels, 94 majors, Mi captains, and 610 lieutenants over- Ampudia, Mejia, Bustamente, .Santa Anna, 1'aredes, all, hide your dimin ished heads! Victory or death! Alas! how fleeting all our glorious hopes! The ranks?the ranks are not filled --and the "sovereigns''decline the honor of "falling in." The officers, in full array and eager for the fray, look dag gers at their "sovereign" masters, the people. At last the Legislature has taken the necessary steps to ' enforce a draft- and when (Jen. Taylor will receive re lief remains to he seen. The democratic fighting Irish, who have adopted this "the country of their choice," i openly avow n perfect willingness to remain at home, j and let the "natives" have the whole honor of chastising the "bloody Mexicans," while they will "fraly" attend to ' all voting and elections, and such like useful and domes- 1 tic " consarns." The fact is, " the spirit don't move," for more reasons ! than one?first, the natives arc at least two-thirds whig*, \ and they feel a kind of innate modesty-a sort of delicacy, ; about volunteering in a hurry?thinking it might be i thought uncourteous not to give to the democrats the 1 first chance at the "glorious scratch." Second, the Irish democracy don't fancy a summer campaign at $10 per month, when they can have $3<i pet month at home. Be sides, they have doubts if they would not incur the dis pleasure of his holiness the Pope, to do battle with a Ca- | thollc nation. On the whole, they are willing to vote : and fight at the polls for the present. Third, the volun- , teers who went to Texas last summer were treated scan- 1 dalously, independent of not being paid off until this day. i All these circumstances seem to chill the enthusiasm of the good citizens of New Orleans?which certainly ' would otherwise have prevailed on so patriotic and im portant an occasion. - One company has arrived from Mo- ' bile to-day, and three companies have mustered into ser- j vice from this city. I am inclined to think tho Mexicans will give us a second edition of Gen. Hull's campaign in : the last war. It will not be many days liefore Mexican ' privateers will commence operations on our merchant vessels. They will be fitted out by English capital, and the only way to put a stop to Mexican imposition is to send a force sufficiently strong to take the city of Mexico at once, and end this miserable farce. P. S.?May fith, 11 o'clock A. M.?No news from the seat of war. No troops have left yet to relieve Oen. Taylor. Recruits kor Texas.?The number of volunteers al ready obtained in this city is probably about l'JOO, cer- . taiuly not more than that number. Unless they come forward with more promptness, the Governor will bo ; compelled to resort to a draft. Several very fine compr.- j nies have been formed, and we sincerely trust that there will be no holding back on the part of our citizens, when it is of the most vital importance that the whole force ! should depart immediately. U. 8. Taoors ranM Foht Pike.?A detachment of regu lar troops, numbering about 80, arrived yestorday from Fort Pike, and marched to their quarters at the barracks. Several companies of volunteers raised in this city, we learn, also marched down last evening. The United States Quarter Master has dispatched all necessary arms and equipments to the barracks, so that there nceu l>e no delay In equipping the volunteers, and we hope no delay in getting them off. Recruits from the Country.?We learn by a private ! letter, that Gen. Rousseau, of the 8th Brigade Louisiana Militia, has issued his orders to the Colonel of his com mand to open lists and invito volunteers for Mexico, and ; to send thom to New Orleans as fast as companies can ! be organized. He has also required immediate returns j to be made, with a list of names of all persons in his bri- ' gade limits subject to military duty. This last order Is : made preparatory to a draft, should such a measure be ordered. Theatrical and Mualcitl. ! Park Theatre.?The play of " Love's Sacrifice," was : performed again at the Park last night Mrs. Mowatt j seems to improve at cach successive performance, and I has overcome many of the little defects which we no ticed on first witnessing her personation of Margaret. There is a peculiar grace in the (manner of this accom plished actress, which is almost fascinating, and it is pro nable that she owes her lofty position in public estima tion, as much to this je-ne-eaie-quoi, as to strength of ge nius. We have before given our opinion of Mr. Van denhoff's Kllinore. and atill consider it > moat masterly and finished performance. No one could possibly witness it without stamping the actor j as a man of infinite dramatic talent To-night is the last ?. of Mrs. Mowatt's re-engagement, and is therefore set apart for her benefit She will appear in two of her most l>opular and effective characters?Mrs. Haller, in the " Stranger," and Gertrude, in her own play of "Fashion." Vandenhofl' will perform the Stranger, and Mr. Chippen dale has volunteered to play Adam Trueman. To predict a crowded and fashionable house would be to foretell a certainty. We understand that Mr. Vandcnhoff's benefit takes place on Monday evening next Bowert Theatre.?"George Barnwell," a tragedy which is said to have better effect than a sermon ui>on an audience, was performed at the Bowery, last night, #ith | just applause. Mr. Clark appeared as Barnwell ; and ! Mrs. Madison as Milwood. The grand spectacle of "El j Hydcr." in which Mr. J. R. Scott played Mat Mizen, was ! probably the greatest attraction, however, from the ' warmth'w ith which it was applauded in all quarters of . the house. The performances concluded with the inter- j esting drama of "The Robber's Wife." These numerous j entertainments on one night, prove that Mr. Jackson, ! the enterprising manager of this theatre, s|>ares no exer tion to give his patrons their full quantum of amuse ment lor to-night, a superb bill is offered, viz :?Tho grand national drama of "The Cradle of Liberty ; "The Rake's Progress ," and the comedy of "How to Die for Love." An engagement is understood to have been ef fected with Miss Julia Dean, and she will soon make her appearance on the boards of this theatre. Greenwich Theatre.?This establishment is cloaed for a short time. It will probably be reopened either on Monday, or Monday week. Palmo's.?We understand that a company of dramatic amateurs are about to give a series of entertainments at j Palmo's, next week. It will, no doubt.be very interest ing. Anniversary or the New York Sacred Music Soci ety.?The anniversary performance of this society will take place this evening at the Tabernacle. When the public understand that Madam Pico, Miss Northali, Mr. rolburn of Boston, and Mr. Edward Sheppard, will be the principal performers,and that Handel's grand "Oratorio of the Messiah,*' will be the theme, we hare no hesitation in saying that the Tabernacle will be filled to overflowing. It will be recollected that Messrs. Colburn and Sheppard appear only on great occasions, such as the present one. We wonder at this, for when these gentlemen perform ed in this city before, they made a great sensation among the fashionable circles, and were acknowledged, by competent judges, to be two of the best oratorio sing ers in the country. Madame Pico's name alone is suA- ! cient to fill the house. Rockwell k. Stone's Circri.?This equestrian troupe, consisting of twenty-six male performers, nine female riders, and fifty-eight horres, repeat their performances, this evening, at the Military Garden, Brooklyn. The dresses, banners, lie., of the company, are magnificent, ami with such attractions as the graceful Levi North, the intrepid Hiram Franklin, the great revolver of somersets, McFarland, and the inimitable clown, John Gossin, the inhabitants of Brooklyn will receive a rich treat, and the exertions of the enterprising proprietors will be apprecia ted by a full and fashionable audience. Mr. Dempster gave his farewell concert at St Louis, on the 'id inst Mr. Kean took a benefit at 8t. Louis, on the fith inst? The plays were the " Iron Chest," and the " Honey Moon." City Intelligence.

A defeat of the Mexican forces, at the outset, might lead to an armistice, and perhaps to a permanent cettlement of all the difficulties in diapute. Everything, therefore,depends upon the manner in which the aff air is opened. The most intense anxiety exists for more definite account* than any yet received, and the public mind ha* been ao much agitated in relation to thia matter, that busine** i* in a measure suspended, not only in Wall street, but among the mercantile cla*?e*.

The recent account* from the Mexican fron tier have had a very depreasing effect upon those stock* likely to be depreciated in value by any protracted diffi culties with Mexico. Fancy stock*, which have no par ticular value out of Wall street, and what value they have there being created by the operation* of the two great (peculating parties, have not been much affected by the war new*. It will be perceived by the above compara tive quotations, that noarly every State stock in the list has fallen off two and three per cent Even United States stock* have depreciated several per cent. We must look for a depression in theie securities so long as we are threatened with a rupture in our foreign relation*, or so long as a rupture exists. It is not ao much a collision with Mexico that we apprehend, for that alone would eventually be rather a profitable |movement thasfother wise, but it i* the possibility, nay even probability of other power* being drawn into the whirlpool, and a general rupture in the peace of the world. We are now in a position similar to that of the three great power* of Europe, and if each i* left to carry oat it* own object, there will be no danger of the difficulty extending; but there i* such a disposition in the govern ments of Great Britain and France, to meddle with our domestic affairs, that we fear some movement will be made, in relation to Mexico, that will involve the three countries in a rupture of the most alarming character. Under the pretence of protecting the interests of their ci tizen*, every effort will be made to throw obstacle* in our path, and every indirect movement operating against the prog re** of the United States, will be retorted to. The government of Great Britain, we must expect, will be particularly active in thi* crisis; and if we may judge by the measure* adopted by England to prevent the annexation of Texaa, we have every reason to suppose that the same tools will be used for the purpose of obstructing the consummation a* much as possible, and to increase its cost to thi* country to an enormous extent. The fact of our acquiring such an immense and valuable territory, without an immense expenditure of blood and treasure, doe* not agree with England's idea of obtaining possessions. Every league of territory the possesses, ha* been purchased at an im mense cost, and at the sacrifice of millions of lives, and she cannot understand, and is therefore jealous of, the power and influence of that country, the institution* of which are of such a character as to quietly work out re volutions, and to draw a foreign people under their pro tection, as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings. Countries have, heretofore, been subdued, ami territory acquired, at the point of the bayonet and the sword; but the acquisition ol territory by the silent extension of the benefits of republican institutions, is something new in the history of nations, and something well calculated ?to increase the enmity and jealouiy of monarchical gov erament*, to republic*. We have *een, within the past few years, a combination among the European powers, for the purpose of checking the growth and increase of the South American republic*. Thi* ha* appeared *o palpable, that the subject of the balance of power on thi* continent has been frequently alluded to in the repre sentative branches of the various governments. As yet thi* queition i* in the chrysalis state?it is destined, be fore the lapse of many years, to endanger the peaceful relations of the principil nations of the world. As re publican governments increase in strength, they will be come more odious to the monarchical governments of the old world, and require greater efforts on their part to check. The very salvation of the kingdoms of Europe, depends upon restricting the progress of republican in stitutions; and the knowledge of this fact will induce them to check, in every way, the extension of our terri tory, and to surround us with every difficulty they can conceive, or carry out Reports have been pretty freely circulated in Wall street lately, that the semi-annual interest on the publio debt of Pennsylvania, due on the 1st of Angust next, would not be paid In full. The object in view in stating these reports so injurious to the interests of that State, was to depress the present market value of the steck. Some of the largest operators in the street are stuck several hundred thousand dollars, and they will resort to any measures calculated to frighten holders and force the stock forward for sale. The State Treasurer of Pennsyl vania has J vat tested a circular to the county commission ers and treasurers, for the purpose of stimulating them to exertion in providing funds to meet the payment of the interest at maturity. We give this circulsr at length, as It is highly important at this moment that the matter should be placed before the bondholders in an official shape.
