If this pronunciamtnlo, intended to hare been commended at Vera Crux, had gone into effiict, It would hare been followed by nearly all the departmenta ; but thla failing to take place, the departments have not moved in this atfiir : although a very great majority of the people are strongly opposed to the preaont order of things, and would be .willing by any meana in their power to lend their aid to deatroy the prenent government, who they are satisfied are working for the establishment of monarchy, and intend to call in ioreign intervention to se cure and maintain the same. It ia the opinion of many of the liberals, that if th? Congress meet (which i* to be the 1st of June) they will establish a monarchical form of government, and call is foreign aid.

I That from the period when the constitution freely ami spontaneously provided for the republio by itself, ceased to exist, those since formed have not been compatible with the wants snd wishes of the majority of the nation. II. That from this have arisen the continual agitations which have afflicted the country, until it has at length been torn in pieces ; and after its evils from without nail been studiously aggravated, some spurious Mexicans have considered themselves authorized to endeavor to subject it to the most shameful vassalage, attempting to invite a foreign prince te govern it, with the title of monarch. III. That in order to prepare the way for this, they have dared to deny the aovereignty of the people, by summoning a Congress in which special care has been taken to bring together elements the most strange, but the best adapted tor consummating the disgrace of the nation. IV. That wo cannot assent to the meeting of the aaid Congress, without thereby giving a pretext for ssuming tne will of tha nation, which is pretended to he re- | presented, in favor of calling in European inteivention, . and thus supporting the parricide project of the administration now established in the capital ol tha republio.

The people and garrison ef the town of disavow the summons [to a congress] issued on the 27th nf March last, by the so-called President eiI interim and his ministers, as being a direct attack upon the sovereignty of the nation, and isaaed with the evident object ot making the cation appear to call lor a monarchy, with a foreign prince to govern it Art. -i. Instead of the Congress summoned by the said decree, another shall aaaembled, cow posed of representatives chosen by the people, according to the electoral ' laws undrr iwhich the Congress of 1824 was chosen, which body shall be charged to provide a constitution I fer the republic, and to adopt for it form of govern- ! ment, such as it may consider best, with the exclusion only of the monarchical form, which the nation detest* , and to settle everything connected with the question of : Texas, and the otner frontier department* Art. S Within tour months alter the occupation of the capital of the republic by the liberating forces, the Congress mentioned la the preceding article shall be assembled', to which end it shall be the duty of the genenri inchief to issue a decree of summons iu the terms herein indicated, and to take other measures for the conduct of the elections, with tha utmost freedom poeaible. Art. 4. The existence of the army ia guarantied, giving to it all the attention which ia due to the moiitorious military claaa of a free people. Art t. All persons shall be declared traitors to tha na lion who shall attempt to impede the assembling ?f tha aid Congresa, or to attack it by placing obatacles to the liberty of its members, by dissolving or suspending it* sessions, or who shall endeavor to oppose the constitution which it may aetablish.

The lore of provincial liberties being final/ rooted in the minds of all, and the democratic principle predominating everywhere, nothing can be establiahed in aaolid manner, in the country, which does not conform with these tendencies; nor without them can we attain either order, peace, or proeperity, or respectability among for eign nations. To draw everything to the centre, and thus to give unity of action to the republic, as I atone time considered best, is not longer possible; nay more, I say It ia dangerous; it ia contrary to the object which I proposed for myself in the unitarian system, because we thereby expose ourselves to the separation of the noithern departments, which are the most clamorous for freedom ol internal adminiatration Seeking always what seemed to be most advantageoua to the nation, I have resolutely maintained views which if they have not led to favorable results, have been the offspring of sincerity and good faith. Facta have since oonvinced me, that oy following them longer, nothing could be settled, and the co-operation of the people could uvi im anuini, Ul ?nwi Ml (inricm Ul 1 rum IDS UITIDW iuvaaion with which we are threatened from the north; because, not content with an? of the institutions given to them aince 18S4, they eppese at least a force of intrtia, which rendera every proceeding difficult and ineffectire. I nevertheless persuaded my calf of tha necessity of changing tha course of thingi, and returning to the track from which we hare since that period bean at raying, in order to allow the two principle* above indicated full plev, and to remove aside all that could embarrass their action In two words, I became persuaded that without leaving the republic at liberty to organise Ha own system in the manner which it considered heat, and submitting to the ideas of the age, according to which all tha branched of our administration should be adapted, wa should never attain prosperity, nor should wa preserve our national exiatence trom the ambitious efforts of oar northern neighbors, which cen only be restrained by principles, and by principles which they themselves have aet before us with the happiest results To this subject, I wss directing my eflbrta wpen the events of December, 1844, came upon me, in which the liberals alto took pert, probably from their not having romprebended ire. They should not have boon eo precipitous; (or they bad the guarantee of ihoee by whom I was surrounded in my last administration; and if I was 1 not explicit as to my designs, they should reflect that say poaition being then very rmbarrassing, 1 could not hare declared myaelf fully without hazarding the success of ssy enterprise Home believe that a favorable opportunity was odared me on my return from the interior to the capital; but iemembeung what happened to General Bustamente at the 1 regeneration, I considered it more honorable to fall with my old ideas, than with others which might have been ' mm m aa^riflr* ?#a ike L? n?r*aaifw Thi? ia MCret which hae remained unknown to 70a; but you ehouid know it now; becuM the time ii com# whoa we ebould underatand etch other, in order to act in uniformity. Von will, I think, be convinced, M I em, of the necee ?ity ol giving thia new direction to affaire ; but I therefore urge you to u*e ell yoar influence to reconcile the liheraU, communira'icg with Senor Fariaaand hia fHende, in order to induce them to come to an ondentanding witn ue, for which purpoee agentj ahould be tent to Puebte, (iuaoajnato, Jaliaco, Zacatecaa, and other departmen'1, to that all being thua placed in accord with each other, we mar toon lead the reaabUc into the way of preservation. You m?y tell the Drat named gentleman, that, with the lame good faith with which I roatalned the unitarian admibiatration from the year 18*4 I will in future ?upi>ort the claima of the maaeea; leering the people entirely at liberty to organize their ayetem ?f government,

and to regulate their aJToire in tte mannei which mey pleaee them beat; that I hare reeolved to die in the meinunenre of theee opinion*, end am (tie pi eel to give every guarantee which eovld be Aaetoad to aaeare tatir lilltment I only aak. in reoompeaaa for the eervfoea which 1 11 My reader on tnia occaeton, that I My tor* the hitner ' f ' *** ~ R?

After giving to tha people a decisive proof of my respect and devotion to their sev#<eign will, and having concluded thia act by which I desire to reconcile myself with my country, I will not remain twentv-four hour* in power ; it being my irrevocable determination never from that moment to return to the exercise of authority, limiting my self wholly to my service aa a soldier in support of the r.onatitution tha a MtfthlfihaH hv m* anal in of the right* of the republic against foreign nation*. It will, however, be ntumrr in all re?pecu, to proceed with the utmost caution ; for it oar project should be discovered by the army, which is adverse to the federal system, we should And greet difficulty in establishing it ; and much address, will .be therefore required to prepare the minds of the fpublic by adopting a plan in which that name ihonld not appear, and which may yet lead us to our proposed end; which end, so for as ] am concerned, is, I repisat on my word of honor, none other than the re establishment of what wa* overthrown ia 18U, strengthened by such improvements and addition* as experience may have suggested to us. You may, however, pioclaim the assembly of a convention, composed of deputies elected by the nation, with the utmost possible freedom, for the organtxation of a system of government on the terms which the nation may prefer, excluding only the monarchical form whieh it detests. In conolusion, it i* material that no time should be le*t, as we may thus lose the most brilliant occasion which could be presented. Send me an agent active and expert to communicate to me your ideas, and let me know the resources which you can command in your own as well as in other departments, so that, with ail the oireumstanoes before us, we may arrange our first measures. For my own part, I have made many preparations, and 1 feel confident of the aid of Yucatan ; but I wish nothing to be undertaken unless with the concurrence of the most influential persons among the people. Let eur device in future Be, the union of the people and the army, as it was in 188.2; considering that we are now to defend the same cauae; and upon this point, one of the persons on whom we should in my opinion relv. is his excellency General Don Juan Alvarez, who will never compromise with the monarchists. If you should have an opportunity, write to him in my name, and ahow him the necessity for our union, in order to destroy the advancement of tyranny, which alarma me the more, as I seo and feel the preparations now in progress, among Pared**, AUmnn, and other* of tlhat faction.

[translation.] National Palace, Mexico, ( August 31, 184# > Sir -The undersigned minister of foreign relations of the Mexican republic, has submitted to his exoellency the general-in-chief ol the liberating army, charged ad interim with the supreme executive power of tne nation, your excellency'* note of the 37th of the pist month of July, in which you propoae, on the part of yonr government, to open negotUtions which m iy tend to the conclusion of a peace just and honorable to both countries. His excellency, on being made acquainted with the terms of the said note, could not but fix his attention strongly on the circumstance that, refusing discussion upon the causes of the war existing between the two is desired at present to consider those causes merely as a thing that is past, and belonga te history.? For the executive to accept such a proportion, en that baais, when dealing with a subject which concerns the honor of tha country and the integrity of its territory, and endangera its nationality for the future, would be te waive the question of its Justice, and to complete the irritation of public opinion, already highly alarmed, as is proved by the discussions which have taken place on the subject, through fear that the aubject might receive the solution now suggested Thus it is that the affairs of the republic, having been brought, by those same causes, to the situation in which they now are with regard to the United States, it has been neceaaary to call i tpon the nation, in order that, through repreientative* | *lected with the fulleat liberty, her fate may be deliberated upon, her aecurity, her honor, and her fnture welI fare provided lor. A Cong re**; having been convoked for thie object, which will commence ita aeaaione on the 0th of December next, aa that body will charge itaelf among other important matter*, with all that relatea to the war with tbe United Statea, to |t will the above-mentioned note from your Excellency be aubmitted, In order that it may determine upen what it ahall judge to be proper for the intereata of the nation. The government of the underaigned, in conaequence, awaita (he determine tion of that aatembly, in order to give the becoming anawer to the eaaential part of the said communication, the relatione of Mexico with year republic remaining meanwhile in the eame atate in which hia Excellency, the general in chief of the liberating army, found them when he aaaumed the charge of the executive power of the nation. The underaigned, in transiting thia enawer of hi* government, deapatching it to your excellency through the cheuuel w iich you indicate, availa himaelf ot t?i* opportunity to aaaure you of hia diatinguiahed ceniideration. MANUEL CRKSENCIO REJON. To hia excellency the MtitieTxa or Foaiian Relation* of the United Statea of America. To hia excelle ncy The MimfTxa or Foacioi* Relation* of the Mexican Republic. The nndereigned, Secretary of (Mate of the United | State*, baa had the honor to receive the communication of hia excellency, the miniater of loreign affaire of the Mexican republic, dated on the llat ef Auguit, in anawer to the propoaition made by the undersigned to the Mexican government, in hi* note of th* a7th Jntv u?? ?h?t | " negotiations ?hall forthwith commenco for the conclu?ion oft peace jiut and honorable for both parties." Thi? note declared, in expresi terma, that it wan the desiro of the President "to conclude treaty of peace which shall adjust all the queations in dispute between the tup republics " These quostiona had all rxlited before Mexico commenced hoitilitiea, and to adjaat theae questiona waa the trowed object of the proposed negotiation. It i?, then, with no little astonishment that the Prealdent hat perceived from the communication of hit excellency,that tho Mexican government had ao far misapprehended the meaning of the undersigned at to tuppote that thia government either deaiiedor intended to with Jraw from the negotiation* for peace the cauiet, on either-aide, which led to the existing war. and to cocaider them merely " as a thing that ia past and belong* to history " Very far from it This would have been to aban don the just and acknowledged claimi of our injured citi zeni, for violations of their personal liberty and aeizurea of their property, continued throughout many successive years, tad which, in the opinion or President Jackson, to Inntf am (r?hniarv 1(W7 wnnM flaw* Uialife/I " eye* of all natione, immediate war." Thle mieappreheniion on the part of the Mexican government appear* the more remarkable, as it la an inference drawn by them from that part of the note of the undersigned moat conciliatory in its character. In thii nete, which waa intended a* a mate preliminary to the opening of negotiations, it waa desirable to avoid all irritating tonic* For thia reaaon the language employed waa " In the present communication it la deemed useless, and it might prove injurious, to discuss the causes of the existing war. This might tend to delay er defeat the retto ration of peace. The put I* already consigned to hiitory; the future, under Providence, is within our own power." And yet it is from this last sentence, disconnected from all which precedes it, that the Mexican government have inferred a disposition on the part of the government of the United 8tates to avoid, in the progress of the negotiation, the discussion of the questions out of which the wer originated. It is most certain that no such disposition exists: and the undersigned feels assured that he need add nothing more to convince the Mexican government that, in this particular, thay have placed an erroneous construction upon his language Conscious that in making the overture for peace he has performed his duty, the President will now await with patience and with hope the final daciaion of the Mexican government Va* MftlaUa* tkl. -a ?L 1? ? I ?t mi?mu| uua utviiuib iuua virij, a? wan 10 do limit d?|ni Iilunud by the consideration, tha' the longer the war ihall last the greater will b? the difficulty of concluding satisfactory peace, on account of the heavy increased expenditure which iu continuance will render indiapenaable. He will, however, hold himself always ready te terminate H upon principles of impartial Justice ? Having, in the first instsnce, used all proper efforts to avoid hostilities, and having now proposed to open negotiations tor the conclusion of a just end honorable peace, nothinjf is left tor him but to acquiesce in the deciaion communicated byjyour excellency, that until changed by the act of the Mexican Cengrees, the relatione between the two countries will remain "in the same state in which they were found by his excellency the commander in chief of the liberating army, when he took charge ofthe executive power of the nation." In the attitude thus assumed by Mexic~ , the United States can appeal to the whole world that no alternative remains for them bat to prosecute the war with vigor, until the disposition which they hare so signally manifested to brine it to a speedy termination, shall be met by a corresponding sentiment on the part of Mexico, and the negotiation which they have invited, shall be brought tea happy conclusion. The undersigned avails himself of the present occasion to offer to his excellency the minister of foreign affairs of the Mexican republic, the assurance of his moat distinguished consideration.
