" Whattlo y?u think of the new olive branch just sent to Mexico 1 I hope there will be wisI dotn enough Ibuml in the councils of that sellI abused government to receive it in the !ame kind spirit with which it has been sent, but I fear it will oe rejected ; if so, depend upon it, the war wilt be carried into Africa. I hope for the sake of humanity and the cause of freedom on this side of the waters, Mexico will agree to receive a minister, and if the door of reconciliation is again opened, (notwithstanding what has been said by some of the New York papers,) I trust the Hon. John Slidell will assume his mission. I have had an opportunity, and surely a good one, to know how that gentleman was received, how esteemed while in Mexico, and with reluctance they saw him leave the citv of Mexico, and at last embark from VeraCruz. Such being my opinion of Mr. Slidell, I cannot but hope he will be the man to settle all the pending ditliculties, for I feel confident whatever he does will bo for the honor and happiness of both nations. His situation in life is such, that he can act out his true character, an independent man. 1 have not had the pleasure of seeing Mr. i>lidell since my return Jjroin Vera Cruz, consequently know nothing of his views on the subject of the mission " By giving publicity to the above, although without ihe knowledge of Mr. Dimond, (but as I have Kiissed several years in Mexico and at the time of lr. Slidell's visit was there, I think they are correct sentiments to be made public, and prefer your valuable paper for this purpose,) you will oblige, Yours, A Subscrirer. Mexican Prlv?tctr*> [From the New Orleans Delta, Augutt 31.] We see it stated in La Patria of yesterday, that Don Francisco Arrangoiz, Mexican consul at Havana, has written to the acting consul of this city, ordering letters of marque to be issued here. We haro since learned through a personi late from Havana, that by the packet ship which was to leave for New York on the same day that the P. Soule left for this port, similar orders from the Mexican government had been forwarded to Don Juan de la Granja, Consul General in New York. Our contemporary says he hopes that the government of Louisiana will be on the qui vive in order to prevent the arming of privateers here. Of this we think there need uc uui uiut) B|)|uea0u9]oun. j uero mo iwo |)owenui causes to prevent it. The first is, that we believe there is not an American citizen in New Orleans would be tound so rec.rcaut to his duty to liis country as to countenance, aid or assist in such anenterprize; and the next it, all knowing the likelihood of being arrested, and if arrested, the terrible penalty of the crime, that none will have the temerity to embark in the undertaking. When we hear of the capture of any one of the most unprotected merchant vexsels in the Gulf. we will begiu to balieva there are privateers afloat, not before. Freah Opinions from Canada on the Mexican War. [From the Montreal Herald, Aug. 35 ] The United States papers, received yesterday, contain little of interest, beyond the accounts, which wc give below, of the state of attain in Mexico. What with invasion trom without, and discontent and threatened civil war within, the Dons would appear to have their hands pretty full. Mexico affords a striking example of the folly of attempting to apply t'ae principles of self-government to a country in which the great mass of the population is steeped in ignorance and superstition. Great and manifold an re the evils eonfetxedlv attendant u|>on the exercise of arbitrary and irresponsible power, they are immeasurably less destructive to the social happiness and prosperity of a country, than those arising from tho practical absence of all government, when each individual or faction do that which appeareth good in his, or their eyes, without any reference to the general welfare. Ignorance and superstition retain men, women and chil aren in knowledge anil intellect, ana, uue cnuaren, their happiness can only be secured liy blind obedienco to those whom Providence has placed over them. Freedom o( action, and release from parental control, might, with as much salety, be bestowed upon the children of Ureat Britain and the United States, as a republican, or even a representative form of government upon such people as the Mexicans?the^y have not the intellect, nor the information, upon which, alone, (elf-government can be maintained ; and the foundation being shitting sands, although the State edifice may, during temporary calms, be built and re-built, it is ouly that it may be crushed and destroyed by cach recurring tempest?revolution follows revolution, faction succeeds faction, and civil war assumes a chronic form, which, although not fatal to the patient, keeps him in a lingering, wretched condition, in which he is only relieved from suffering by insensibility. Much has been the condition of a Republic, and such it will continue to be, until some strong, firm hand grasps and retains the supreme authority,and governs the |ieople?asCromwelldid the Commonwealth of Kngland, or as. in ?ur own times, Louis I'hilippe has dono in France. We cannot go the length ofCarlyle, in his Hero-worship, but all history proves manic nd owe their civilization, and nations their relative power, happiness and prosperity, to the intellect and virtue of great and good men?their instructors, their leaders and their rulers?and not to the aggregate exertions of the community. No doubt, as civilization and knowledge become general in a nation, the instructive, the guiding, and the governing powers are extended from individuals to classes; and despotism, however beneficially used, yields before a legitimate "pressure from vMkMP-M this pressure mustTie based upon intellect and knowledge, not upon mere numbers and brute strength, otherwise the very principle of even the most despotic government?protection to life and property? is destroyed; anarchy, inevitably, ensues, and society is resolved into its original elements, when might assumes the place of right, and? The ancient rule, the good old plan, That he.should take, who has the power, And he should keep, who can? is universally acted upon?civil war?leader against leader, faction against faction?ii the invariable consequence ; and until lome hero, of the Carlylc stamp, rises supreme, over the contending combatants, binds them, anil governs them, peace and tranquility are unknown, saving as the result of exhaustion. That Paredes or Santa Anna are competent to play the part In Mexico which Cromwell did in England, and which Louis Philippe now sustains in Fiance, we greatly doubt; but that Mexico can (loutish, or even exist, much longer, as an independent republic, we cannot believe possible.

Until it was known what course the opposition would take with respect to the sugar question, the stability of the Russell ministry was very doubtful, its continuance in power was deemed to be very uncertain, and a general want of confidence prevailed which had a sensible effect upon the money murket and all the great commercial transactions. This is not to be wondered at, for there is no doubt if the opposition had rallied al' its forces, they would have been able to defeat the Ministry, which has no great party to support it. There were some strong reasons, however, for not wishing to defeat them, and therelore it was uetermined by all the leaders and influential members of the opposition to let them alone until the present parliament expires, for its "seven years," will soon be completed, when there will be a general election lor a new parliament. The chief reason was the difficulties in the way of forming a new government, which at the present moment v would have been insurmountable; the next reason was the near approach of a septennial general election, and the enormous expenses of a dissolution now, which would all be thrown away by the natural dissolution of the narbament, 111, comparatively a short time. So the Kussell ministry stands by sufferance, the "caucus" having so decided it?for the secret conclave and deliberations of the heads of parties here, is in fnct a caucus. There is this difference; the English caucus meets tub rota, ostensibly on some other pretence, at a dinner party &.c., whereas the Americans do not conceal the tact, both that they act in concert and that they meet without concealment of their purpose, to concert their action. The straightforward, open course of the American plan( appears to me better than the hypocrisy of the English system, and yet the English have indulged themselves in lunrw. u>vxrM miim:iil vi>rsimw 1111011 tile r>.niinii? as if they were quite innocent ot all party management. Apropos of hypocrisy. Where can there be greater than that which this sugar quesiion exhibits? While England is notoriously flooded with merchandise and rawjnaterial, raised by the la- I bor of slaves; while she imports immense quantities of slave grown sugar for the refineries, which is afterwards exported, when retined, the chief, I indeed the only argument in the question was, that it would be an encouragement to slavery to admit slave-grown sugar at the same duty as Free labor sugar. It is well, however, that the opposition have determined not to go into agitation upon the slavery question, and therefore, Lord J Russell's scale of equalization will go into operation without further opposition, except a lew random broadsides, lor appearance sake, as the bill progresses. The question w;is virtually settled W...I ti???u1nv IhmL. Miilv 25).^ tav 11 minority of one hundred and thirty in favor ol the ministry. Lord Brougham the day before, on the occasion of presenting a petition from the famous and now aged Clarkson, President ol the Anti-Slavery Society, took the opportunity of making a long flaming speech against slavery and the slave trade, by way of argument for a special protecting duty upon sugar grown in the English West India Isllands. lie was followed by Lord Lunsdowne, the ministerial leader in the House of Lords, who, in the course of his speech took the opportunity ol"showing the bad feeling os the new Ministry towards America, by a violent lling against all the Southern States of the Union. As minister of one nation in relation with another and friendly nation, he did not evince much tact by retailing such old and vulgar abuse. In the House ol Commons next night, the debate was opened by Lord G. Bentinck on the opposition side ; but the most curious speech on tlie occasion was that of the ex-Premier, Sir Robert Peei, who came to the aid of the ministry, declared his opinion that the measure would promote and increase slavery in Cuba and the Brazils ; that it was not such a measure he would have brought forward had he been in power, and, after all, that he would support the measure for the sake of keeping Lord J. Russell in power,and because of the difficulty or impossibility of forming a new government. For these three different phases assumed by Sir Robert, the Timtn, in a witty article, says that Sir Robert is " like Cerberus, he is three gentlemen at once;" "he has a lace for all." He throws a sop to the protectionists, by saying he would not have proposed this measure ; he conciliates the " pious " and abolitionist party by denouncing slavery ; and he comes to the aid ol Lord J. Russell by voting for the measure. Alter an, uie measure i? ?m?; , uic aunuuun ><i the slavery question is abandoned, antf the Ministry is safe. Had it been, however, the beginning insteud of the lag end of the seven years' parliament, the Russell ministry would ;not have stood many days. The " Evangelical " party rules terribly in England, which may be called the party of tbe Scribes and Pharisees ; and had the question of slavery been earnestly agitated, there is scarcely a doubt to bo entertained ol their ultimate success. Methinks you will naturally enough put the question, why should a powerful opposition, sure of success against an heterogeneous, mixed and feeble ministry, so easily throw aside all its advantages, give up an agitation which would have effected their object, and sulfer thei r opponents to stand, when they might easily have driven them from their post! The answer is plainly this. The protectionists, or country party as they are called, were placed in a singular dilemma. They hate the present mongrel wins ministry?but they hate Sir Robert Peel and the free trade policy. Now, if they ousted Lord J. Russell, Sir Robert Peel would come in again. Hut they have just now turned out this self same Peel; and shall the/ turn round and by defeating the ministry, help to bring him in again 1 This was indeed a dilemma ! Whal was to be done? Precisely what they have done, vix : make a shain attack and opposition, and then retreat without intending to put to route the enemy. This is the whole secret of the continuance of the Kussell ministry in power. The at: fair is interesting and curious as connected witii the history of political party; it is also not unimportant in an American view of the matter, because our relation! with England are so powerfully affected by the action ol parties and the revolutions of ministries in England. In America the people rule, and the predominant popular feeling and sentiment is that which guides the policy of the country. Hut in England it is A. B. or C. D.; it is certain individuals who Kiiide the policy of the government, and hence the views of mere individuals and their particular sentiments are politically and diplomatically of more importance in the consideration ol American politicians than *ho feelings or sentiments of the nation itself. Harvest is just got in. There never has been a better 1-arveai or a finer "etison in the me.nory of the oldest man. Wheat at present fetches only 4s. (kl. a bushel throughout the country.

The new potatoes are in excellent condition Jn the House of Commons, oil Friday last, i motion was made by Mr. P. Miles for a Parlia liientary committee of enquiry into the subject o the American steam packets. The facts ol th? case appear to be briefly stated as follow* Alte the Great Western Steam Company had practi rally shown the advantages and facilities ol stean . V ? I I 1 A ?f,? pilekris ueiwfbn ringmnu mm aiiicii?>they ha<l successfully rnn and carried both pas enters and mails, the government (ccrtainly will a liberality of policy and action well worrhy o imitation,) determined to avail itself of this greai improvement of modern art, and accordingly ad vertised for tenders to carry the transatlantic mails bysteam. This was in Only two bids were made by the Great Western Steam Company and by the St. George's Company. Neither of them were accepted, and the contract wnsgiven lo Mr. C'unard, a Hriti^h subject, wrll known at the Colo nial ollice. Mr. Cunard has certainly executed his contract well, to the satisfaction of nil parties and to the great credit of himself; but it i- manifest that with steamboats which are paid AMU.IMM sterling each trip.ther# can be no competition,and their tendency is, of course, to drive all others oil the line, which have the same expenses, and nt | aid Ironi government. It would be a duploiubU LB. fllll *? OWttt I thing tor all parties, on both sides of the ocean, if 1 the Great Western Steam Company should abandon the enterprise : there is, however some ap! prehension ol it. The object of the enquiry is to | ascertain the secret causes why the Great Western has been excluded from a share of the patronage lor which it Bid, and which it so well deserved, | while the contract was given to one who never , bid at all, and to endeavor to save the company from breaking up, by extending a share of the government patronage to it. The committee will be raised without Apposition, on which nnderderstanilirig, Mr. Miles withdrew Ins motion, and it is probable something wdl be done to equalise the patronage in the shape of a new contract with them, independent of, and along side that with Cunard. While on this subject, it may be worth the while, as a matter of curiosity, to i elate a curious fact which goes to prove the singular ignorance upon matters connected with America, which prevails here in the highest circle* anil among the l>est informed. Would any one believe it 1 Sir Robert Peel did not know that the steam packets sailed from lioston to Halifax, and from thence to Liverpool; but he thought tliey sailed direct from Mew York to Liverpool. This came out on the occasion of a deputation from the merchants of Bristol, who had an interview with him in relation to the Great Western, the day before he gave up the otiice as Prune Minister. On that occasion he expressed his astonishment and declared he had always thought that the Cunard steamers sailed direct between New York and Liverpool.? Cunard, however, has succeeded in getting the new contract for the fortnightly packets ; the deputation came too late. The Great Western ha* reduced passage and freight one-quarter what it was before by steam ; it cannot stand against a competition which has all expenses paid, for its receipts immediately fell off fifty per cent by the government opposition, and if it should at last be driven oil the line, the public would sutler by being at the mercy of a monopolist. It is to be hoped the United States government will move in this matter. The submarine magnetic telegraph has attained such perfection, and the difficulties against its extension have been so successfully overcome by the improvements practised, that it may not be improbable that in the course of ten or twelve year* an American merchant at New York will be able to communicate with his agent in Lon don in the morning, and receive a rtmly in the evening before sitting down to supper.
