We publish on the outside of this day's paper General Taylor's official despatches to the government in relation to the capture oi Monterey. They comprise letters from Generals Butler, Quitinan, Hamer, drc., in addition to his own, and will be read with interest by all. We learn that despatches have been received from General Wool, and that he was within 8 or 4 day's march of Monriova, and about 135 miles Irom Monterey Other accounts state that lie was at Monclova. We shall publish General Worth's letter, and perhaps othe despatches from other otfice rs, as soon as they are received at this oitice. \\ bo tirgHii the War ?The Important <4ueitlon for I'onyreo to Decide. This appears to be likely to be the agitating question in the Congress about to assemble in Washington ; and it will come under debate mainly through the remark of Mr. Webster at a recent public meeting; which remark went to declare that no one voted for the war?that it was the war of the President. The organ has replied very tartly to the insinuation ol Mr. Webster, and it is plainly discernible that the war will en- \ gage much of the attention of the Senate and House of Representatives. We are not disposed to coincide with the notion of Mr. Webster. The saddle ought always to be put on the right horse. The war did n?t commence with the action of the President; it arose in the events carried out immediately antecedent to his Occupation of the Presidential chair. He but carried out what his predecessor, John Tyler, began. John Tyler performed all the sign man- ' ual for the country which annexed Texas, and the organ declares, in reply to Mr. Webster, that Mr. Polk (sent General Taylor to the Rio Granite to take possession of the boundary claimed by Texas, which John Tyler annexed, in this position of the organ, there is a fund of amusement for both parties; and the organ, without doubt, proposes to cotne out against Webster with the charge of being John Tyler's Secretary of State ; and that, as such, he went in strong forTexas in his official notes to the Mexican Minister of Foreign Relations. Now, it is clear, that effects cannot bo without causes: consequently the war could not be without its cause, and perhaps the true cause of it is Texas. Texas was annexed by John Tyler, and Daniel Webster was once John Tyler's Secretary of State. Who then began the war J If it was not John Tyler, it was Daniel Webster; and if it was neither ol theni, it was perchance they two in partnership, with Mr. Upshur, as the company in the concern. By such reasoning the organ, or perhaps the administration, endeavors to get to the windward of Daniel Webster, and thus free the skirts of Mr. Polk of the charge of beginning the war. * " We have just turned over a file of State papers, and among them, we discover Daniel Webster's official letter?the one that has been so much talked about?to Waddy Thompson.? That goes in powerfully in favor of the right of action of the United States in the matter and defence of Texas, and approves explicitly of the course taken by Waddy Thompson in the Mexican capital, the language of whom gave so much affront, and was so tartly responded to by Mr. de Bocanegra. It would be ol very little service, at present, to enter upon the points discussed in the official correspondence to which we allude, but we think it may be found to exonerate the present Cabinet from the inuendos as to who began the war. It is plain that, as the country had decided to have; Texas, that it was the duty of the President, on coming into power, to take it. If any fault is chargeable to any one, it is chargeable to those who made it imperative upon the Executive to carry out a certain line ol duty. The chartre of Mr. Webster, that the war is the war ol the President, and not the war of the country, or that it is a war not intended by the country?while it proves what the subject matter of debate will be in Congress?makes the present aspect ol the war itself one of great and positive interest. What will the Message say of it 1 We think it will be one that will take strong grounds for an etfective national defence, but with a tone expressly conciliatory towards Mexico. It will be thus, in order to enable the President to receive with becoming dignity the expected reply of the Mexican Congress to the overture of July last. Our readers are aware the Mexican cabinet referred the overture to the people, and that the people are to act upon the overture by their " Constituent Congress " now about to assemble. The Congress cannot do otherwise than enter upon the discussion of it immediately on their assembling; and, we think, in fact, it has already been announced they will take advantage of its coming before them, to devise early I means of ascertaining the object ol it. It would perhaps be singular indeed, were the " Constituent Congress'' to take the overture into consideration, and. vet. recommend no action to obtain the sentiment.-* of our cabinet on the subject of terms for the settlement of the war. Such action will not occur. We cannot fancy it probable that the Mexican Congress will be opposed to the ap- | pointments of a commissioner to learn the views of our government; especially as such an appointment of a commission, will not, in any way, prevent their going on with the necessary measures for carrying the war on. If, afrer learning flic views of our cabinet, they shall conclude our requirements cannot lie acceded to, and the negociation be broken off, then, nothing will be before both countries but additional trials at the feat of arms. If commissioners from each government do ! meet, however, the chances are that peace will be the result. After such severe lighting, each country is necessarily called upon to indulge rea- i sonahle respect for the sentiments of the other; and, perhaps, after all, a spec of spirited war is but the natural antecedent to a long and lasting friendship ; but it will be difficult to put any con- , fidence in the rascally treacherous Mexicans. We shall probably be compelled to keep an eye constantly upon them, or they will dirk the first unarmed American thnw r. -v., uncr a ireuiy 01 peace is signed. We know it to be a fact, howevor, that sentiments highly honorable to onr cabinet, have, through an indirect channel, been transmitted to the government of Mexico. The frank, conciliatory character of those sentiments ought to have the best eflect in the proper quarter, and if, as we have said already, commissioners on the part of each country should have a meeting, the cabinet of Washington will probably succeed in securing a pacification of the national differences. It will manifestly appear to the government of Mexico, not by any means to their interest to continue in a belligerent attitude, if the contest can be paciflcated on terms not positively obnoxious to the future success of Mexico under their re-established Federal Constitution ; and which, we are k given to understand, is to be improved, so as to make it, in almost every particular, to correspond with that of the United States. Thus, if the Sierra Madre, as a boundary line, be not obnoxious to these Mexicans, we may soon have peace. When peace shall be arrived at, the question will be, not who began the war?but, who brought about peace? Meanwhile Tainpico, Alvarado, Tobasco, Saltillo, San Luis Potosi, lie., Ac., are to be invested by our troops. Tub Hkram> for Eurofk, to g? in the Great 1 Western, will be issued next Thursday noon. I m ii.i i!j ' j I'll ' un i"" i Mjouwrtti Mrt ro* ~ln rim early (.ah ci la-.t week we expressed an opinion thai n mounted force was peculiarly adapted to the wants of this country ; and that the government at Washington, if they had not already so decided, would doubtless soon deem it prudent to send such there. The copious news from thence, since received, and published in our columns, as well as the order of Commodore Stockton tor organizing a battalion of this description, of such materiel as could be best there collected, prove that we were correct, and show the necessity of sending there a properly organized and disciplined body ol the kind, who cannot only render valuable service in the present war, but will afterwards, without expense to the government, keep up their organi v.auun lur uie ueience 01 mat country ana tne protection ol property from Indian depredation, itc. ate. An excellent opportunity tor cariying this into effect, on terms most advantageous and economical totho country, presents itself to the government, by the proffered services of the fine regiment of mounted men attached to the Sixth Brigade N. V. S. A , who are most desirous to contract with the government to serve there, or elsewhere, during the war, and to afterwards settle in that country, and, as citizon soldiers, defend it without further recompense. It is no compliment to say, that no mea can be found better fitted for cultivating feelings of kindness and good will, wherever they may be sent, or conducting successfully any enterprise where intelligence, energy, skill and courage are necessary, than the Colonel and officers of this regiment; and we sincerely hope that the government at Washington, either before or after the meeting of Congress next month, will take the earliest opportunity to order this or some other regiment of the same kind to be in readiness lor service. Such a course, it appears to us, would be far more economical and prudent than sending a General and regiment of U. S. dragoons to so great a distance as California, at enormous expense, and overland, by a route deemed almost impracticable, from whence they must either return at a similar cost, on the expiration of the war, or remain at an immense expense to the government and country. j. ue rcjjimeni 01 v^oionei oievenson, now on us way to Californ:a, will doubtless render very effective service in garrisoning the towns along the coast, and defending them; but will be altogether useless for service in the interior and amongst the mountain, and for the attack and pursuit of the marauding parties of Indians who infest and plunder the country. Ocean Steamers?The Great Western will leave this port on Thursday next for Liverpool. The Caledonia, from Liverpool, is now in her fifth day, and may be expected in about nine days. Before the Caledonia arrives, however, wc may receive news by a packet ship. Supplying Europe with Food.?We learn that there are now upwards of thirty ships loading in this port, principally with provisions, for Liverpool alone. In return, bullion will come to us. Apropot to this, is there to be any movement made in this city for the relief of the starving thousands in Ireland 1 Where are the repealers!

King John"' was performed for the seventh time, last evening, to a very excellent house The brilliant success which marked its production, so far from being diminished, is nightly on the increaseThere is nothing wanting to make it the greatest Shakspearian revival that has ever taken place. The audiences have been, thus far, in tho highest degree respectable, and the actars have acquired a degree of finish in their respective parts that prevents the occurrence of any tedium or annoyance. Of the scenery, costumes, and appointments we have already spoken. Their splendor bus never been equalled on our boards nor excelled on any other, and the munificence displayed by Mr. Koan, as n? liia nntirintr -seal in ririllinar lh? etinprniimArarinn and ill otherwiie devoting his energies to secure the success of the play, deserve tho splendid triumph which it has obtained. "King John " is to be rrpeatod this evening. Bowbrt Theatre.?The burlesque opera of "Beauty and the Beast," "Mazeppa," and the drama of "Nick o' the Woods," were all peiformed at this theatre last eve' ning, to the largest audience we ever saw within the walls of any theatre. The same bill is advertised for this evening, and we have no doubt tho audience will be fully as large as last night. We understand the manager has succeeded in making arrangements with Mr Murdoch, the celebrated tragic ^ptor, who has won honor and applause in every place where he has parformed.? He will make his tirst appearance here oi< Monday evening next We cannot doubt that he will meet a reception worthy of his high talent and acknowledged accomplishments. Aehamra.?Wo are glad to see that the number of visiters at this pleasant establishment is on the increase : and indeed the performances of the (lerman magician arc sufficiently attractive of themselres to fill the saloon*, even if other amusi g novelties were not olfered. His feats are as pleasing as they are incomprehensible, and the power which he possesses of throwing the appearance of supernatural power over his acts, is extraordinary. As this is the latt week of his engagement, we advise all who have not seen him to avail themselves of the opportunity, this evening at the Alhamra Bowert Cian i ?The performances at this establish meDt last evening were loudly applauded from begin, ning to end.

This is the last week that we shall have the splendid collection of wild animals in the city, and we recommend to all parents not to omit giving to their children a practical lesson in natural history. More can be learnt by one hour's in. spection of this extensive exhibition than in a perusal of books for months. Kaoh morning and afternoon, besides amusing feats in the arent with the elephant. p> ney and monkey, the cage containing a lion, tiger, leopard and other wild beasts, is eutereo by Mr Pierce, who possesses a most wonderful control over their movements. Mrs. Hunt, one of the most pleasing actresses in the country, is engaged at the Albany Museum this winter. The rittsburg papers speak highly of Mrs. Mowatt's acting. The Commercial says '" Her representation of N'uanca was a finished piece of acting?graceful and natural.

Madame Augusta, M'lle Dimter, and their corps it V*,re forming at the Walnut street Theatre, Philadelphia, to crowded houses. M-H.-Blangy, the Hansrutr, was to appear last evening at Philadelphia, at the Arch street theatre, for that night only, on occasion of the benefit of Mr. Hazard, who retires from the stage. Hilahee, the Yankee comedian, and Barney Williams, are playing at Cincinnati, to crowed bouses. Musical Intelligence. Henri Herz gives his second concert at Philadelphia this evening His first concert was, by all accounts, eminently successful Political Intelligence. The leturns from Texas are sufficient to show the re election of the present members, 1). T. Kaufman, and T. Pillsbury. We learn with feelings of proud satisfsction, that the whigs of the legislature held a prirata meeting last night, and resolved to support the Hon Goorgo K Badger lor the vacant seat in the Senate, occasioned by the resignation of the Hon William H.

Saved from Drowning?The police of the 1st Ward have, through their assidious exertions, latterly saved the lives of several who fell " overboard," according to the reports in the Police Office in the vicinity of the Battery. A man named ftitrick M'Cabe was saved from drowning yesterday morning by officer Garrison. He had $106 on his person, and also checks to a large amount, j Another ? David Anderson also fell into the Deck at tho foot of Grand street, in the East river, and whs rescued from drowning by officer James Bayle, early yesterday morning. And still Another.?Robert 8pral, who also fell . into the East River, near Catharine Kerry, was rescued from drowning by policemnn Reeves, and was brought to the station house. Dr. O'Donnell was culled upon, and after promptly attending to the patient, who had been much exhausted, after being immersed for somo time in the water, sticcoeded in restoring respiration Tho pa1 tient premises to recover. The Lamps Again.?The complaints are still loud against the gas company. The lights are put out frequently before 11 o'clock, and this has bet-u felt as a serious annoyance to both the police and the inhabitants in many ol the streets and wards. | Lost Childhen.?Charles Marsh, about four years old > was found in the street*, and sent home to No. 398 Monroe street. Goorge Cortant, aged about 3)^ >ears, was also found in the streets, and sent home to No. 29 Columbia street. Entertainment at Stuvveiant Institute.?We learn with great satisfaction that Professor Whitnoy, at the request of numbers in this city, amongst whom we see the names of Gen. Gaines, Gardinar Spring, D. D., and other gentlemen of tho various professions, will give a course ol oiatorical entertainments in this city. Tho first one will take place at the Stuyvesant Institute on reader* to the Professor's advertisement in another column. Hit well known ablli'iet will more than suffice to fill the room Protection Blues.?This fine company pasted our office yesterday morning on a target excursion, and looked exceeding well. They are a fine body of men. The Military.?A new company called the Emmet . Guards, commanded by Captain McGrath, will have their first parade on Wednesday next. The company was raited by the Captain, and numbers about forty mut kcts. The men are all under thirty years of age; they have adopted the artillery uniform, blue turned up with j buff", which gives the men a soldier-like and imposing [ appearance. Vanderlyn's Great National Painting or the Landing or Columbus is still on exhibition. The talented artist, now advanced in years, was, we arc pained to learn, so unfoitunate as to place his first instalment from Congress in unsafe hands, thus losing $2,000, which obliged him for a long time, whilo in Pans, to leave this and attend to other works for a support. His present exhibition is with the hope of retrieving his fortune. A generous public will, we trust, second nis endeavors. Evacuation Day.?We understand that a special committer of the Board of Common Council have resolved to meet this evening with a view to adopt some measures toj entertain the military on ..Evacuation Day, to-morrow, 35th instant The Common Council voted down an application on this subject, which was brought up formally before them. 8everal trees were blown down on {he Battery during the late gale. On Sunday night, an unknown man, of genteel ap pearance, walked off Pier No. 1, East river, in front of the Custom House Barge office, ard would have been drowned, but for the timely aid of the vigilant boatmen attached to the above department Coroner's Office, Nov. 33.?Accidental Death.?The Coroner was called to hold an inquest yesterday, at No. 47 Roosevelt street,on the body of a boy, twelve years of Aire, of the rime ol William H. Duffy, who. it annears. accidentally fell through a scuttle on Friday last, precipitating himself from the filth story to the cellar below, breaking through a board on the lower floor. The acci- J dent happened at the chair factory, No. 317 Pearl street. The poor boy lingered until yesterday. when he expired from the injuries received by the fall. Police Intelligence. Nov. 23-?Detection of Burglart?Andrew Elliot, John Kella and Joseph Marks, were arrested on Sunday night . by officers Stow ell and Reeve of the 4th ward, whom the above officers discovered in Catharine street, endeavoring to "krack" various dry goods stores, and watching their movements until they operated on the dry goods tore of Edward K. Shed k Co No. 65 Catharine st. Just at this time Thomas Connell, formerly a policeman of the 1st ward came along, and by his aid and advice the parties were all taken into custody. Marks wss found up stairs with a portion of the property in his possession, and the other two were outside on the watch. In the morning they were taken before Justice Osborne, who committed Marks for the burglary; the other two were discharged, the evidence being insufficient to warrant their detention. Caught on the "JumpV?A fellow called Edward Farrell was caught in the act, last evening, of stealing a muff valued at $S, from the hat store of Jacob Banta, No. 130 Chatham street. On being searched at the Tolico office. a letter was found on his person dated Nov. 23d. written by Mr. Eldridge, of the State prison at Sing Sing, which latter was directed to Mr. liaac T. Hopper, a member of the priion association, setting forth that the accused had served out an imprisocment of two years, and his conduct during that period was passable, and that he was now prepared to lead an honest lite hereafter. This letter the raader I will perceive was dated the very day of his discharge, yet, before sundowu the same day, this hardened rascal is detected committing again the very crime of which he ha 1 just served out a term of years in the State prison. Surely there is very little chance for reformation in such a chap. Justice Osborne committed him for trial, when in all probability be will be tried for a second ctfence,and be sent back again to his old quarters. -Qrresti on Bench Warrant#.?John Vantine,(a steward in the Asylum,) Spies, one of the keepers on Blackwell's Island, and James T. Godfrey, one of the nurses, , were arrusted yesterday by Officer Oenniston, one of the attaches o( the Court of Sessions, on a Bench Warrant, . they having been indicted by the Grand Jury for aiding the escape of prisoners on the -Id day of November! They were severally held to bail in $500 each, which tbey gave, and were liberated from custody. *? Singular Indictment. Officer Oenniston, one of the attaches of the Court of Soations, arrested, yesterday, Daniel Sickles, on a bench warrant, wherein he stands charged with a felony. It appears that some time ago, Mr. Sickles executed a mortgage on the property owned , by Mr.S. at 7it Nassau street, to a Mr. Kimble, when, af- 1 ter the execution of the above instrument, Mr Sickles undertook to get it recorded, and since that time Mr. Kimble avers that ho has been unable to obtain possession of said mortgage. Justice Osborne held the accused to bail in the sum of (1,000, which he gave, and was liberated from custody. Dismissed from office.?The eleven policemen of the 1st ward, whose conduct his honor the Mayor has been investigating within the last two or threee days, for tome shines they cut up in an oyester collar in Bearer street, which, it appears, could hare been settled with the propiietor lor $6, but tho policemen refusing to pay tor their fun; consequently, the case was laid before the Map or, who dismissed them all at one batch. Taken from a thief.? An old Fire Point thief, called Bill Maitin, was arrested, last night, by officer Feeny, of < the flth ward, having in his possession a side if sole leather, evidently stolon, for which an owner is wanted.

Etaeuation Day.?Alderman Tsrrsn offered a resolution in favor of appropriating .$300 to defray the ex|ienses of the military on Wednesday next, in celebrating Evacuation Dav. Alderman Mcscn*i.t: opposed the resolution. The day was usually spent in carousing and drinking, instead of in any substantial manner being appropriated to advantage. There were no monuments erected in the city to the memory of Washington or Jackson, and while this was not the case, they had no right t<J appropriate money for carousing and drinkiug. Money was extravagantly spent on the occasion of the celebration of the 4th of July ; and it would be more serviceable and honorable to appropriate a sum of money for the orectien of a suitable monument to the memory of either Washington or Jackson.

The flr*t edition published about six years ago, had a rapid and extea*ive circulation : it was to be found in the hands of every student and practitioner in the State.

The New Pope?The Italian Confederation?Theatricals. The condition of stagnant tranquillity in whioh Eu rope has been so long maintained, has lately been dis turbod, so that journalists have had a little variety breaking in upon the tiresome monotony to which they have so long been doomed. In the first place, the King of the French has played the English ministry a trick, which has exasperated the latter in the highest degree. The queen mother of Spain having passed some months in the French captital, a match was got up between the youngest son of Louis Philippe and the younger daughter of Queen Christine, on certain private conditions and considerations, known only to the contracting parties themselves. This marriage, however, was opposed by the British Cabinet, and only conditionally seceded to by the Peel ministry, on the consent to wait till the queen regnant should have an heir. On the accession of the whigs to power, Lord Palmerston seemed disposed to offer even further opposition, whereupon Louis Philippe pretending to think that the agreement made with the lovers was abandoned, secretly settled the marriage,, and had it solemnized in spite of the British Cabinet This has put an end to the renowned entente eoriiale, of which you hare heard so much. The rupture with England has set parties in Paris to look lor other alliances, and a certain section of the coneervative party is now congratulating the country on being liberated from the trammels of the entente cordiale, and urging the cabinet to direct its attention to a triple alliance for all purposes national and commercial between France, Russia, and the United States. A journal here understood to represent the Russian party, urges this strongly. Meanwhile, the Spanish marriage gives France, at least for the moment, a predominant iulluenoe in the Peninsula. The kingdom of Portugal is in insurrection against Queen Donna Maria; goaded to that state by en atroeioue coup d'etat, which suspended, or rather abolished, the constitution, it ii earnestly hoped that the popular cause will prevail, and that her Majesty will learn the danger in future of playing such pranks. It was at first thought that Spain would intervene in favor of the Portuguese government against the insurrection, but it is now understood that under the advice of France she will hold back. Switzerland is in a state of movement. The seven smaller eantons, which are Catholic, having admitted Jesuit establishments, and took other measures at variance with the will of the larger cantons, a disagreement has ensued, and a separate league has been formed among the lesssr cantons. The Diet, or federal government, will, it is expected, immediately interfere to compel the Catholic or small cantons to expel the Jesuits. In this case it is expected that the lntter will resist, and a federal revolution, or a dissolution ot the federal compact, must ensue, unless the loieign powers who have Suarantied the pact, interfere, either to enforce obeience to the Diet fiom the reensant cantons, or to compel the Diet to allow the canton* to proceed ea they please in respect to the Jesuit*. In every caae difficulties are apprehended. But the greatest phenomenon of the age is the radical Pope ! Pius the N inth is actually a radical refermer, and as such, being opposed by Austria, is seeking countenance and support from the liberal government of Fiance He is about to introduce railroads, a newspaper in Rome, and other civilized improvements. An Italian confederation hu been ipoken of ua thing probable That in to aay, a combination of all the Stales south of the Alps in one union, like that of the United States, with u federal government. Jealoueiet about precedence, and about the eaat ot the federal legislature, will be the great and probably insurmountable ui(Acuity, if this project should be really attempted.
