Washington, Friday. lit the Senate, Mr. Cameron, of the Committee on Patents, reported a bill to alter and amend the patent laws. He also presented the proceedings of the war meeting in Philadelphia, and said lie was proud of that city for the opportunity she had given liim of laying before the Senate, this evi dence of the patriotism of her sous. Wlmt she had done for the country, she would do again. She had coal enough in her mountains to warm her friends, and iron enough in her mines to repel her encinins. The motion of Mr. Archer to reconsider the vote to disagree with the amendment of the Houso, on the bill in regard to the regiment of mounted riflemen, was taken up, and discussed by Aroher, Dix, Crittenden, Cass, and Berrien. These ? amendments require the ollicers ol the proposed : new regiment to be taken from the supernume rary officers in regular line. They would exclude , Capt. Fremont. On motion of Mr. Benton, the amendment was agreed to. In the House, after a personal explanation bo Mcssrs. Tliurinan and Delano, they proceeded to consider the private calendar. The schooner Tuncred bill was passed. The bill to pay Mr. Green for services rendered our Mexican Charge, is under discussion, Martin 1 Grover speaking against it. Philadelphia, 11 o'clock P. M. The American has just roceivod the following telegraphic despatch lrom a Washington corres pondent, dated 8 P. M. i "I can now speak of the important news I sent last night. The fifty thou sand volunteers will be all called out, and twenty three thousand will be marched into the field as soon as they can be concentrated. Gen. Scott will proceed to take command of the war. The requisitions have been forwarded to-day, and are nearly as follows: Indiana, three regiments ; Il linois, three ; Kentucky, three ; Tennessee, three; and some others. The residue of the 50,000 will be kept as a reserve. They will be mustered into the service so as to be ready for orders in a mo ment. Mark me, this will be a successful and short war." The report* that went out this morning, as to intelligence of the capture of Point Isabel, are without foundation. The President, witliin the last hour, stated to a distinguished Senator, that nothing had oome from the camp later than before the public. BY THE LA8T MAIL8. Protest of the British minister. The Present Imbecile Cabinet miut go out. PROBABLE WAR WITH ENGLAND. Washikoton, May 14,1846. The British Minister, Mr. Pakenham, formally protested, this morning, against the course adopt ed by this government against Mexico. The reasons assigned are those which arc usually ad vanced by that power upon similar occasions? that of the injury and interruption to commerce, which such a state of things naturally produces.? The British merchants at Matanzas, you are al ready aware, have protested against the occupa tion of the territory opposite to that city by our troops, and the blockade of the river upon which it is situated/by our vessels ; and, in furtherance of this declaration, her Majesty's Minister has so lemnly entered his protest. If this country do not at once succumb to this threat?a thing which it will not do?he will ask for his passports, proba bly, and depart immediately for some of the British provinces, near this country, until ha hears fur ther from his government. btful?very.? , Ed. Her.] Such is the crisis to which Mr. j Folk and his miserable advisers have brought ; us at lost. The country has never had any confidence in his cabinet, and how can it sustain I it now, when the emergency calls for the co-oper ation of the mighty minds of the nation 1 They must be forced from his councils, and able men placed in their stead. We want no land specula tors at the head of public affairs while in a state of war with any country. We want patriots, and such men as are above Caesar's wife. In my letter in yesterday's Herald, I referred to the manner and the probable motives, that in duced the government to push our troops on to Matamoras. I will now place another platform of the same kind on the top of that, and occa sionally another, and another, until we get hiph enough to look down upon all the iniquity that lies under the official garb that covers some men. In September last, a company of land specula tors was organized in the city ofNcw York, whose principal object was the purchase of all the land lying between the NeOCeS and Rio del'1 Norte. Having appointed agents to go to that onuntry, they were accordingly sent there for that purpose. When they arrived in Texas, information was con voyed to them not to make any purchases for some time, as the value ofthe lands would be shortly di minished, from the fact that the United States troops then stationed at Corpus Christi, would be moved upon the Rio del Norte. How these gentlemen received this piece of useful informa tion, and from whence, maybe more readily ima gined than told ; but true to their mission, a por tion -of the company returned to New York, loaving one or two there to buy up all the choice bits that might offer, in the interim, for the enor mous price of two and throe cents per acre. It was only last Saturday that the prinoipal ngent of this joint stock concern passed through this place, on his way out to the "promised land," receiving, as a matter of course, here, his instructions how to act. And this is the cause why we are now plunged into a war with Mexico, and, probably, with England. I repeat, the cabinet must be dis missed, one and'all, before four honor and rights can be maintained. Give us men at ttie head of public affairs in whose honesty, patriotism, ta lents and capacity for carrying a great nation through such a crisis as the one upon which we have been forced by their?what 1 I have n o words to express my indignation on the subject? and then wo do not fear England, nor all the powers of the world combined. Mr. Polk, you must reform your cabinet, or you and the country are ruined. The situation of the government is, tliet if General Taylor's forces should be overcome by the enemy, General Scott is to take the command of an army of 90,000 men; and the former, pro bably, given the command of a division ot the same. Should General Taylor, however, be able to overcome the Mexican forces, he will be placed at the head of only 10,000 troops, and com pelled to operate with that limited force alone. This is the plan of action determined upon by the wise men at the head of affairs. The mail is just in from the south, 10 minutes past fi o'clock. There was nothing received up to 104 o'clock, A. M., on the 7th inst, at New Or leans, from General Taylor. The belief there was, that ho was hemmed in on all sides, and that his communication had been completely cut oil from Point Isabel, and the latter post in the possession of the enemy. s Aiuel, Washi.iqtow, May 14, 1846. The Critit?Con pet*?War?"Pu Executive?lhe Oregon?The Country, tff. We are truly in the midst of a great revolution. The elements are in a state of white heat. As Mr. Calhoun has said more than once, we are on the very verge of a great crisis. There has never been ?uch a crisis since the return of Napoleon from Elba. God help us safely through! We know not but that, in addition to Mexico, we shall have England, France, and old Spain down upon us. If so, wake up! fellow citizens, for there will be something to do. We have all sorts of belligerent, bellicose, and horrible rumors, this evening :? 1st That 40,000 troops hsve arrived in Canada. 3d. That Mr. Pakenham hss entered a protest sgaiatt the declaration of war with Mexico. 3d. That Ota Mexicans hare taken Point Isabel, and that no troops had arrived te the succor of General Tsyler 4th. That a British fleet had arrived off Vera Crux. Mh. That an English man-of-war was lying st the mouth of the Columbis, in Oregon. 0th. That the Spanish authorities in Cuba had dcelsrel thefr ports open to Mexican privateers. 7th That the Preetdant has a dtarrbflss To sum up there rumor* : A hava aidvw m Mr. Packenharu has, we believe, protected against the blockade of the ports of Texico; the two war ttenmers purchased of thnt government by an English lirra, being still in a Mexican port. Point Isabel is ]*MHibly, quit? |>o>m!)Iy, iu the hands of the Mexieans, wh jIi would only suggest more strongly, u bold and pre cipitate movement of our volunteers. British snips are in the Gulf, but with no direct view of co-ope rutiou with Mexico. The other rumor* ar?t of 1 whole cloth, excepting, perhaps, the diarrhxa; (he President may Iiave a slight touch, but nothing to interrupt his general health.
