falls exclusively on that part of the rear which i>r<-<-e.le< the semi-emmai interest due in August next. Wo mutt endeavor to make up thia unexpected deficiency by the moat prompt an<l vigorous use of the means that are left us. The increased tonnage during the entire > ear. it is believed, will be nearly commensurate with the loss I have stated, and thus the net tolls' will lie about the same as last year. By the promptness and activity of the caunl commissioners and their officers, the eutire line of our public works.'including all the branches, are now in full and sucoeatful o|>e ration. 1 stated in my circular of the 34th of May, 1844, that "we paid the interest due in February last, and we can do so in August and February next, tractive and prompt measures are adopted in the several counties of the com monwealth.n Vour efforts have fulfilled these expecta tions, and our commonwealth stands redeemed from the dishonor which for a time rested upon her. Let us not falter now. Let us determine to use all the means in our power, to maintain our elevated position, anil avert the impending calamities which would fall upon our com monwealth and our citizens, should our plighted faith be again broken. There is reason for great anxiety, but not despondency, as the following brief statement will exhibit. Our re sources may be stated thus:? Assessments for 1846, estimated net amount. . .$1,189,000 do of previous years, do 374,000 Net toll* from public works 500.000 Aggregate $1,960,000 The interest falling due in August and February next, tuny be stated to be $1,860,000. The ordinary and other revenues not stated, it is believed, will be suffiaient to meet the ordinary expenses of government. It will be thus seen that the prompt and punctual payment of the existing revenues, will place the Treasury in a condition to meet the accruing interest ou the public debt. As a means of producing this result, I call your atten tion to the proposition made in my circular of the 31th of May laat. I renew the offer. An abatement of five per cent will be allowed for the payment previous to the 1st of August, of the taxes of this year. If the aum paid approaches near the quota of your county, this abatement will be made. Vou have it thus in your [raw er to benefit your county, and save the common wealth from dishonor. No higher motives of action can be pre sented than these, that of interest and patriotism. In the event of the inability of your county to avail itself of the abatement, it is expected that you will press the collection of your duplicates as rapidly as |>ossible, and pay the amount without delay, into the Treasury.? The duplicates having gone forth much earlier this ) ear than the last, will greafly facilitate your collections.? There are arrearages of former years due from several counties; these ought to be collected, and paid immedi ately. For the arrearages of 1845, interest is charged, and will accumulate until paid. If your county is in this !>oaition, you should not suffer the loss which this delay occasions. We will surmount our present difficulties if our de termination and action be commensurate with the evil which is impending, and the good we may accomplish. If we are successful in paying the August interest, 1 firmly believe that the future payments can be made without.a struggle. On the other hand, if we fail, the dead weight of V00,000 of unpaid interest, not to speak of State dishonor, will lay upon us like an incubus; and ill paralysing influence will be felt for years. 1 know you duly estimate the importance of immedi ate and prompt action, and rely with entire confidence that your best efforts will be put forth at this important crisis. I will be pleased to bear from you in relation to this subject Very respectfully, your ob't servant, a JAMES R SNOWDEN, State Treasurer.

By Electric Telegraph. Washington, Thursday, 4 I*. >1. The proceedings in Congress were as follow* : 111 Hie Senate the committees reported several bills, among others a hill for a free bridge across the Fotoinac, at the Navy Yard. Mr. Hroese introduced a bill to rc(>eal the pro vision m the navy appropriation bill of last year, limiting the naval force to 7,9*10 men. An interest, ing discussion then ensued, and the bill was re letred to the Committee on Naval Affairs. Bills from the House wore then taken up and referred. The bill in relation to the Florida judiciary, and the New Hampshire claims lor military services, were passed, the latter 29 ayes to I t noes. The French spoliation bill was further i>ost|?on cd till Monday. The amendments of the House to the bill rais ing a corps of sappers and miners were concurred in. It was thus passed and sent to the President. Mr. Archer's motion to reconsider the vote by which the Senate disagreed to the amendments ol the House in regard to tin* amendments of the bil' for a regiinentof mounted ritlemen, was laid aside for enquiry. The bill authorizing the appointment of one pay master and three assistant paymasters, is under discussion as we close the despatch. The West Point bill was finally passed. In the House, a motion to reducc the mileage of members, was rejected. The army appro priation bill was then taken up?a partisan dis cussion of more spirit than utility, ensued. In this, Mr. Sherman, of Ohio, attempted to reply to Mr. Delano, but with no great effect. Mr. Sims, of Missouri followed, and made a rough but strong characteristic harangue in defence of the admin istration?Hon. Garrett Davis pushing back the imputations cast on those who do not approve of all Mr. Polk luus done in the Mexican business.? He referred to the President's usurping power, and embroiling the nation in war while Congress is in session, and without submitting the subject to that body, which alone has full authority over the matter. By the Last Malls. Washington, May 13, 1846. The President's proclamation announcing the existence of war between this conutry and Mexi co, will be published, probably, to-morrow. It was issued by him to-dny, und is now in the hands of the government printer for publication. The most active preparations for a war with tlint coun try arc now being made by the heads of the mili tary departments here, and orders have been sent oil in every direction to the commanders of ships and fortresses to enter upon activo service forth with. The Mexican ports are to bo immediately blockaded, and, if necessary, bombarded by our licet, which has been ordered to concentrate upon tliat coast in sufficient force for the emergency. Those vessels on the stocks and in ordinary, arc also to be forwarded to completion, if the exigen cies of the case require them for service ; but, as this is not and cannot be known for some months yet, very little, if any, of the ten millions will be expended upon them at present. The revenue cutters may be transferred to the naval branch of the service, and answer all the purpose of pro tecting our coast commerce froin the piratical de predations of privateers and other armed vessels sailing under.the enemy's flag. There is yet no news from the army, i ne mails from New Orleans, which arrived tins eve ning are up to the 6th instant, at which time no thing had been received, either from Point Isa bel or Gen. Taylor. This is the greatest anomnly in the art of war lliat has ever happened under any administration. There are 5000United States irunjw xeveral hundred miles distant lrotn all the sources of aid and information iVoin government, and we may say in the heart of an enemy's coun try, without the means of communicating with any one. except by running a horseman at the risk of his life along the banks of the river at night and though the chapparel which covers the ground that he travels. "Why not establish a line ol seven or eight steamers l?etween Point Isabel and New Orleans, and have the communication between liotli those important |Kiints kept up daily 1 If the lives of the soldiers in Gen. Taylor's army be ol any account to the country, and the anxiety that must pervade the bosoms of their lrtcnds every where lor their safety, be anything with the men who direct public atfairs, then, indeed, they ought to have done this weeks, or months ago, and not liave left the line of communication between them and their army, open to any interruption which cither the enemy or the elements might at any moment give rise to. Imbecility has marked every movement of this administration since it came in to power, und the paralysis with which it has struck everything that it has touched, has caused its friends to fear coming into contact with it, lest, liko the influence of the upas tree, it should poison the atmosphere wherein they breathe, and cause desolation and death to them for their temerity. Among the many foolish, if not vicious, decla rations made by persons who pass for the aniinu man openly and without guise in our streets and bar-rooms, is that of the profits which must inevi tably ari*e from an invasion of Mexico, by the plunder of the rich and elegant churches ol that country. This avowal is made by those people who forget that in doing so they wound the fee* inifxof more than a million and a hall of their own fellow-citizens, whom they expect to contribute, in their proportion, in men anil money, towards sustaining the war. If such were the policy of this country, which, thank God, it is not, the avowal of such an intention now would be impro per in many respects. But, in order to set that class of patriots right on this head, I mav as well inform them now in advance, lest they should be disapimiuted after getting into that eonntjy, and even if iiossible, to the capital of the Motitczumas, that the clergy of Mexico have already made ample preparation for preserving the little Jesuses, with which their churches arc orna- ( inented, in anticipation ol such an event, those splendidly ornamented plnces ol worship, upon I the approach of an enemy, I have been assured, will I*' made as naked of rich and valuable sacred ornaments, as any Presbyterian meeting house in this country; and if required, the sacredjvessels will be given u> the government to enable it to resist every and any attempt at invaston by the troops ol the I.nited States. It is well to know this in time, so that those who calculate making a profit out of that species of plunder, may not be disappointed when they might suppose their hopes were on the point of being fulfilled. The same class of bab blers are continually talking about reducing Ma tamoras to ashes, and other Mexican towns, as if such a barbarous act would be tolerated for a mo ment by our government. No, this is not the po licy or practice of any enlightened nation, and most assuredly, it is not that of the United States When the British soldiery burned the capital and navy yard here during the last war, they the execrations of every man of honor, both in the United States ami in Europe ; and any imitation of such conduct on our part, upon tho peaceable inhabitants of Mexico, with whose government we are now unfortunately at war, would provoke an enemy to practice the same n|>oii ourselves at any futme time, and plead our conduct as a| pre cedent for theirs. Although 1 have very little re gard for cither the promises or professions of I re Polk, I am willing to admit Uiat wherevi r nnil whenever he can exercise Ins authority to prevent cither of the acts upon private or public property above referred to, he will do so. Congress passed the appropriation billI in ref; r ence to our fortifications, to-day. The West I oint Academy bill cAne up for under discussion for a considerable time. Of all , the .mixtions practiced unonthe people of he I nited State-, this is probably,the greatest. It is an institution Ml which the " big beggarinen ol the nation have their sons educated at the expense of the liard working clasw^tl^farmers and me chanics. Let any one only look over the list of appointments to that school for the last few years, and he will find that the nabobs of the nation arc thrne who have the exclusive privil.-ge of getting their ?ons npixanted cadets. Some or the last ap pointments of John Tyler were the sons of Benja min Tevis and l)r. M'Hellan ol Philadelphia, and I)ut! Green, then of this city ; besides a number or others, of the same stamp of the aristocracy, from Virginia and other Slates. It is only necessary for me to name two out of the eleven appointed ny Mr. Polk in February last, the other nine l?'ing ol the like calibre, to show you how this same gnnic is carried on under every administration.

The next arrival will bring news of a formal war char acter, or it will be entirely paciilc ; the repudia tion hy the Mexican commander, of any aggres sion on his part, and perhaps the suspension of : hostilities, and a peaceful pro]x>sitioii to settle dif ficulties. In the latter case, the late act of Con gress will not be required to be made effective, and the President may issue no proclamation. The lute act of Congress may be considered a positive declaration of war, and it is more tho of IH12W,,T? V1' r,;H,Ul!^ 1,111,1 ,he declaration ol 1812 That act declared war between the Uni ted States and Great Britain, and placed at the disposal of the President the land and sea forces ail comprehended in one short section, and made no specifio appropriation ?f money, which was j immediately followed on the same day, 19th of June, 1812, by the proclamation of President Ma dison. But this last declaration was made alter mature deliberation, in closed doors, for three uays by Congress, constitutionally and formallv nor did it contain any preamble. It was on the preamble in the act, passed yesterday, that the opposition in the Senate was mode. All were willing to grant any amount of money and sup plies ol men to meet an invasion, which miirht or not 1x5 authorized by the Mexican government ; but they wanted more time and developments, before they would vote lor a positive and formal declumtnn of war winch, us Mr. Calhoun said, affected the rights of other nations, in amity with the United | States, lhe majority in the Senate wislied to lorce the friends ol peace to vote against the bill with the preamble, and thereby to make political capital; but their object was well divined, and nearly an unanimous vote was the consequence, lhe game was played dexterously, and started in the time of excitement?struck while the iron was hot; but the chief purpose failed. And it is un der the pressure of this very panic, that large sums ol money have l>een voteu, and so many appro priation bills lor the army, including the lortiHca tion bill which passed the Senate to-day. The , money is now in the hands of the distributing powers, und they use it, or squander it, as they please more particularly, should affairs take an 1 immediate pacific turn, und the present excite ment prove un ebullition. It muy have some stood ell ect in showing, that if on the grounds of a skir mish in an enemy's liorder, this whole country can be so violently aroused, and Congress act pre cipitately and promptly and liberally, what can be done, and would lie done, in case" of any sim ple aggression, on the part of England, or any of the great powers of Europe 1 The volunteers named in the bill will not be wanted. The sim ple passage of the act is sullicient intimidation to Mexico. But if she jiersists in her folly, and with holds the justice due us, und will not at once ac knowledge all our claims, and grant us full and entire retribution for injuries given, she must take all the consequences, and be driven to beg on her knees for jieace. I am no apologist for Mexico, and a long series ol grievances on her part, demand from us a strict exaction ; but us to the late cause of aggression our administration, somewhere, is certainly to be blamed, and a great wnnt of sagacity and states manship has been proved to exist in our present Cabinet. 1 Mr. Calhoun said yesterday, in the Senate, he would rather "put a dagger into his heart," than vote lor this bill. Ho thought it precipiUite un dignihed and unwise. * The bills have all passed?now, what will the cabinet do ? Mason, the Attorney General, is the only man of magnanimity and incorruptibly among them, and two of the remainder are seek ing the I residency. Where will the money be scattered i The next elections will tell. The public will keep an eye on Rodin, of the treasury department. f There was quite a calm in the Senate to-day after the storm ol yesterday?and the chairman of the Committee on Foreign Relations, as he step ped into the Senate chamber with his inaugural gait, looked confidently around, as if ready t? flut ter another declaration ot war in the face of the Senators. The llouse sprung a debate on the Military Aca demy bill, which lasted all day very animatedly. ? iHV? no niore warlike news shortly, we shall (all back into a torpid state again. I wish to correct a common error. Many sun pose that in case Mexico has, or will declare war the seas will swarm with privateers, who can prey, ail Itbitum, on our commerce. If Mexico could, or did grant letters of marque and reprisal to other nations, the crew of each vessel so sailing under the Mexican flag, must be two-thirds Mexi cans, otherwise they are all to be considered as pirates, and hung at the mast-head by any vessel catt,uJinKltl,e,n- , Pk I.HAM. 1. S. The several companies which have been reported, heretofore, to have "been ordered by the war department to the seat of war, have only re ceived orders " to be in readiness to march at the lirst warning"?a beautiful commentary this, upon the prompt and energetic measures of the department, in a time of emergency. It is all a humbug. Washington, May 13,1846. Mexico?The fVar? Congrrsi? The State uf Par tin and the State of the Cote. The whole plan ol the campaign is reversed,? The j>eace is broken off. War exists?it has been existing, and will be extended. We hope, how ever, from the rigorous measures of Congress, that the war will soon be extinguished, dis tinguished, and brought to a close. We have not hail time for a single commentary upon the pro ceedings this week in the two Houses. The ob ject of the whigs in the Senate to the preamble of the ten million bill, is very simple of elucidation. They objected to the annexation of Texas, particu larly the assumption of the boundary of the Rio Grande, as a cause of war Mexico. The pre arnple, therefore, which declnres the war to ex ist by the act of the Mexican government, was a dumpling well calculated to prove a hard dose to the whigs. And though they had to swallow it, they did it with a protest that it was very disagree able to take. Mr. Calhoun and his South Caroli na niils in the House, contended njion the hair splitting abstraction between actual hostilities and actual war. It was the last plunk to arrest the heavy appropriation* which must lead to the let ting alone of the tariff, and to the temporary sus pension of that first initiatory movement to free trade, the destruction of the tariff of'42. The plank is removed?the cable|is cut, and the ship ot free trade i1- out at sea again. Congress will continue in session ; but the tariff will hold over. That's a settled question. Already the expenses for the cur rent fiscal year, ordinary and extraordinary, will swell up to a bill of nearly fifty millions. Let ua give you a rough estimate. Taking the taut year as the ?taiularl. the or dinary expenses of the federal government will amount to MO.flOO.OOO ? ?TBAOIIDIN4BIK*.

But this is in advance of the contingencies which may ftillow up this existing war. It has com menced, but we do not exactly know that it is to 1)0 stopped before tlie adjournment ol Congress.
