r TH1 * Vol. XIU. No. 1'43?Whole No. 4740. NEWS FROM THE SOUTH. [ from the New Orleans Picayune, April 24.] THE CHANCES OF PEACE. We saw a private letter from a very Intelligent officer that several of the States of the Mexican confederacy have denounced the war with tlio United States, and threatened to secede unless peace should be made. Many Mexicans predicted a peace within sixty days, but our correspondent puts little faith in auguries so favorable. lie thinks the great difficulty in the way of n peace is the fact that Santa Anna is so nuarly crushed that he dare not make a treaty. Nor does there appear to be any one elso in Mexico strong enough to incur the great responsibility. None of the old politicians will venture upon the step. Our correspondent udds: "Home man now uukuowu to fame, with nothing to lose and every thing to gain, may arise, aud udvocute a pence policy successfully. Ills want of ambition, or the littlo chance of his obtaining power, may prevent him from becoming obnoxious to the jealousies of parties, and gain for him adherents generally. lie may succeed in making a peace which every body will lie glad of; but how long before it will be used as an element of political warfare' Tho Legislature of the Htato of Vera Crus. sitting at -Inlftpa, was said to be deliberating, at last accounts, upon the propriety of making peace, independent of the general government. The State of Zacatocas has declared itself independent-so writes us an Intelligent correspondent. AFFA1BS IN THE CITY OF MEXICO. [From tho .New Orleans I'atris. April 98.1 Mexico, April I, 1847. ' ' * Affairs are every day growing so complex and confused ill this capitul. t hat I am now utterly unable to understand what the present infernal state of things in Mexico will lead to. Never did you seen country In a more distressing situation than this unfortunate Mexican Republic, nor one more miserably managed. You have heard of the results of the late revolution from the periodicals which I have regularly forwarded you. and you may perhaps Ue ame 10 lurin simuu iuch m hi.- oni.cmri. and scaridiy* of which thin city is at present the theatre. I should not bo able to Hud paper sufficient to describe all that lias occurred liere. It would be necessary to go back tn tlie news of the battle of liuena Vista, an extraordinary battle?one which wo inipartials cannot well understand?as to its stupendous results, its incomprehensible organization, and especially the pretended vietory of Santa Anna, which obliged him to retire from the Held with a loss of 1600 men. and his whole urmy disorganized. This is truly a new fashioned victory. Hut in order to understand the present condition of parties liere. it is necessary to take a calm review of affairs The parties which are at pregent. like moths, incessantly feeding on the prosperity of Mexico, may bo divivideu into tlvu or six factions. There is the war party, who are not only in favor of a war, but of one conducted with decision, energy and real earnest. There is the peace party, which is desirous of effecting an accommodation with the United States, even at the sacrifice of a large portion of their territory. Anothor party?that of t he clergy?bate tha Americans as heretics and Jews, but tliey are unwilling to open the purses of the church to contribute to prosecute the war against the " enemies of their religion/' Uomez Farias has a party. winch is in favor of hypothecating the property or the church, to raise funds to carry on the war. This party is weak. for Santa Anna publicly repudiates it, though it is said lie Hecrelly encourages their design. Lastly, there is a party, which line always existed to a considederable extentjn Mexico, intent upon selfish purposes, disregarding the circumstances of the State?in peace or in war, regarding nothing but the promotion of their own self-interest and ambition. This party lias seised the present occasion as affording an opportunity of promoting their interests, entirely oblivious of the calls of patriotism. an u In Anna leaves to-day (April 1) for Jala pa. where tie will unite his force with that of Gen. La Vega, who Is now at the defences of the National Bridge. Santa Anna says that he goes to conquer or die ; but this he has said so often, that we canuot put much reliance on the threut. lie takes with him about 30.000 men of all arms, tile greater part of thein being taken from (jarocliada) the lowest class of the people, who are very good for fighting. They will, however, have no other advantage over tlie army which marched from San Luis, except that tiny will not ho compelled to the same dreary march through vast wildernesses, and exposed to continual cold and rain. But they are equally destitute of resources and means, having no provisions, and no money with which to buy any. We have, therefore, no reasous for expecting any other results than have characterized the former enterprises, it is said that if the Americans pass the National Bridge, and march towards the capital, the whole people of Mexico will rise en mai$* against the iuvaders. But we do not doubt that a force of 10.0U0 or 13.000 Americans will not encounter on the march, a Mexican army sufficiently large or determined to resist their onward progress. What do the Mexicans hope for, when, during a whole year, tliey have permitted so many favorable opportunities of repelling tile invaders to pass by unimproved?? Witness the battles of Monterey and Buena Vista?the , debarkation of the American troops in the very face of Vera Crux, aud when the expedition had become so universally known and so constantly expected. Santa Anna says then- shall never be peace as long as there is one American in Mexico. But Santa Anna is, in truth, most desirous of all other persous for peace, and will he the first to recommend it. when it is safe to do so There are many persons in Mexico, who have learned to understand and appreciate the Americans, their laws, government and institutions?but there are many Mexicans who thoroughly despise tho Yankees, their manners and customs. Thus are these people divided anil confused, and yet they call themselves freelncu, aud mockingly style their nation a republic ! FROM VERA CRUZ.

" Yesterday despatches were received hero from Gen Twiggs, at Piano drl Rio, dated ldth iustant, stating that bantu Anna, with about 18,000 men. had occupied the strong pass of Cerro Gorro, (five miles In his advance.) atiout illteeu miles from Jalapa, where he had an additional force ot 7,000 or 8.000 men.

As it is desirable that no time should be lost in raising this additional force, it is pro. posed to accept and muster the volunteers by companies. Your Excellency is therefore requested to cause to be organized in your slate fivo companies of Infantry, to serve during tho war with Mexico, unless sooner discharged. Euch company will cousist of 1 captain; 1 first lieutenant; 3 second lieutenants; 4 sergeants; I corporals; 3 musicians, and HO privates.

Should the number of companies hero called for be raised, they will be at once organized into a battalion, nnd your Excellency is requested to commission the Held and company officers. It may become necessary to order the several companies to thu scene of action as fast as they are raised and mustered into service, in which case they would be organized into battalions uud regiments on reaching thu place of destination. Trenton is designated as the pluce of rendezvous for the sevurul companies, as fast as they shall be organized, where they will be inspected aud mustered into service by an officer or officers of the United States Army, who will, iu every case, be instructed to receive no man who is, in years apparently over forty-five or under eighteen, or who is not of physical strength and vigor.

Mr Kriimii for such I may call many of you from personal acquaintance, and all of you from my thirtyyears duvotion to the interests of your country?I think it right to m*ke this communication to you at the present moment., when the adjournment of Congress, without posting the bill t"r your government and protection, seem* to have left you iu a state of abandonment by jour mother country But such 1* not the W YO *JEW YORK, TUESDAY I case. Yon are not abandoned ! nor will you be denied protection for not agreeing to admit slavery. I. a man of tins South, and a placeholder, tell yon thin. The House of Representatives. a* early as the middle of January, had panned tlio bill to give yuu 11 territorial government, and in that bill had sanctioned and legalized your Provisional Organic Aet. one of the clauses of which prohibits forever the existence of slavery In Oregon. An amendment from the Senate"* committee, to which litis bill was referred, proposed to abrogate that prohibition; and in the delays and vexations to which that .intendment gavi rise, the whole bill was laid upon the table, and lost for the session. This will be a great disappointment to you, and a rial calamity; already live years without law, or legal institution for the protection of life, liberty and property I and now doomed to wait a year longer. This is a strange and anomalous condition! almost Incredible to contemplate, and most critical to endure ! a colony of free men. 40U0 ntile* from the metropolitan government, and without laws or government to preserve tiiem ! Ilut do not Iw alarmed or desperate, you w ill not be outlawed for not admitting slavery \ our fundamental act against that institution, copied from the ordinance of 1787 ?

The most rabid propagandist of slavery cannot expect to plant It on the shores of the Pacific in the latitude of Wisconsin and the Lake of the Woods. A home agitation, for election aud disunion purposes, is ail that is Intended by thrusting this firebrand question into your bill! and. at the next session, when it is thrust iu again, wo will scourge it out! and puss your hill as it ought to he. i promise you this iu the mime of the South, as well as of the North ; and the event will not deceive me. I n the meantime the President will give you alt the protection.which existing laws, and detachments of the army and navy, can enable him to extend to you ; and. until Congress has time to act. your friends must rely upon you to continue to govern yourselves, as you have heretofore done, under the provisions of your own voluntary compact, ami with the justice, harmony and uioib ration which is due to your own character aad to the houorof the American name. I send you by Mr. Shinely a copy of the hill of the late session, both as it passed the House of Representatives. aud as proposed to he amended in the Senate, with the Senate's vote upon laying it on the table, and a copy of Mr. Calhoun's resolutions?(posterior in dato to the amendment, but, nevertheless, father to it) -also a copy of your own provisional organic acl. as printed by order of the Senate : all which will put you completely In possession of the proceedings of Congress on your petition for a territorial government, and for the protection uml security of your rights. In conclusion, I have to assure you that the same spirit which has made me the l'ricud of Oregon for thirty years ?which led mc to denounce the joint occupation treaty the day it was made, aud to oppose its reucwal in lb-JH. and to labour for its abrogation until it was terminated: Lite Haute spirit which led me to reveal the grand destiny f Oregon,in article!! written in 1H1S, and to support every meusuro lor her benefit since?this same Hpirit still uniutateH tne. and will continue to do ho while I live; which, 1 hope, will lie loug enough to see an emporium of Asiatic commerce at the mouth of your river, and a stream or Asiatic trade pouring into t he valley of the Mississippi ' through the clrnnnl of Oregon.

In order that it might be reported complete. are in favor of the repealof the Excise law; hut they desire to defer any uction upon it until the extra session, so that they may have an opportunity to feel the pepular pulse. C autiou is a prominent characteristic of these men.

I 111' 3l)th section of tho bill pretends that in part of the cnuiinou law actions, where all tin* defendants reside in the county, and the amount claimed does not exceed a certain umount. that original civil jurisdiction should he conterred upon the county courts. Messrs. Spencer and Harlow are in fuvor of this clause. Mr. S. persisted, as a member of the judiciary committee, upon its incorporation into the hill, and lie has defended it in the Senate with indomitable resolution. He defined original civil jurisdiction this morning, and said it was conferred on the common pleas of Knglaud. Mr. S said the special cuses in which the constitution authorized the legislature to con' fer original civil jurisdiction on county sourta, mcaut authingclso than those cases which are in their nature of original civil jurisdiction. Mr. H made some remarks in respect to the oxpediency of conferring this iinportaut power upon county courts. Who is there, he said, tlrnt does not know that when you give u court high and important jurisdiction. that you add to its usefulness and dignity the character of the connty courts had fallen oft of late ; if you will select men of talents and learning. and confer upon them diguities of honor and importance, then you will restore the character of these courts. Mr. 3. made a technical, practical, and powerful speech against the allies. The Chairman of the Judiciary Committee (Mr. Hand) is opposed to the section, and left a principle to he settled in the Senate which should have been adjusted before the commltte reported the bill : he did this for the sake of despatch The Kcnate did not vote upon the section. Mr. SrKMCR wan elaborate; the bill is a stupendous in ah ii 1110 nt of legal learning, but it is constructed upon principles which the world must eschew before men can be happy.

R K H CORNING, MAY 4, 1847. SKETCH OF THE REMARKS or \A OK THE dl HON. DANIEL WEBSTER, 2 AT A COMPLIMENTARY DINNER IN RICHMOND, cl P" APRIL 29TH, 1847. HI Mr. Wm II. M*r>'Aiu.ANi>, President on the occasion. " having introduced Mr. Webster to tho meeting with the J' following sentiment:? ' iloDor to tlic statesman and jurist who in an honor to his country." Mr. Wr.iii kr rose and said: lJefore I proceed to make any remarks in answer to the sentiment that has been ? Riven, you will allow me to say that I am for the first time hoping to make a visit among uiy fellow citizens of " the Southern States. Owing to the circumstance that ut the seasons suitable fur such a visit, nty duties have confined me elsewhere, 1 have been no traveller in my " own country. When I puss the James River 1 shall be 8 beyond all my previous journcyings and undertakings. ,, I am desirous to endeavor to see a portion of the country . I have never yet seen; to travel, to see the people in the most unceremonious, freest manner, in which fellow citl- ' sens may meet and interchange civilities. It is not my , purpose to make any tour for addressing multitudes, or . discussing political questions. There is hutlittlu of me; , that little is well known. I have no new lights, and don't belong to the school of new lights. 1 am pleased to . meet so many persons In this growing and beautiful city. . to see their faces and show mine, and exchange with them tho myititucuts and feelings that belong to men of the same generatbut and the same country. Alter the complimentary allusion of the President, allow me to tile whole course of my public life, 1 ac- ' knowledge with pride, and avow, thai i have looked to the institutions of this country, and to that tlrst and chief of them all, the ( oiiHtitution of the United States as the great production of the age that preceded us. I honor as much as any man the military achievements of the men of the revolution. It was a bold revolution.? They trusted to the hazards of fortune. They hazarded every thing for the independence of the old thirteen States, But what at last are military achievements ? It it trur. they hare jinnl the fate of nations. turned the. tide of human affaire. But, after all, what it their mil hut to establish free government and promote public prosperity ? Beyond that, there is no rational, no chris tian object in civil warfare. Its only just object it to rtlahlish civil and religious liberty, to raise man to the standard of human rights. If these be not their objects, then military achievements are unworthy of human re|<ri Krom the constitution itself. 1 have looked to the era of the constitution, the period when the country threw otr its dependence, (which, it is true, it accomplished by military achievements.) We look to a narrow purt of the theatre in which we are acting, if we think the constitution a matter of isolated interest. us look hack 1 to the period of 177,1. What was there then that exhi- ' Kit...I I,? ....... 11.. 1 ..Hill., -r 1. ..... ' ....... ??" tritv^bivtu iiuihj ul niiuu n UUUMUUIIUII : Wll.* it the existeuco of large. growing. confederated, free re- 1 publics f There was nowhere such a republic. There ' was indeed the constitutional monarchy of Kngland.? ' There was the incorporation in it of certain important 1 principles favorable to liberty, und great limitations upon I the prerogative of the federal sovereign. But ouo need not I say?every body knows?that there was no government 1 founded on the principles of representative liberty ?no J government of any extent, respectability, or importance. ' Whilst, therefore, 1 lienor, as much us any man, the ' other works of our ancestors. 1 have always considered the eetablishuii at of the constitution 111 17H?.?, their 1 greatest and noble achievement. WhenjI consider the ' time of its formation, its excellent fabric, und aui constantly more convinoed that it is a wise constitution, I canuot moid believing that it was founded in Providential arrangement. With all the new lights of our age, give us one who can say that wo could make such a constitution. I desire to lliunk Almighty Providence that it was not left to our day to make It. It evinces deep reflection, deep study of the nature of human government. Let us take it as an inheritance come down to us from men ut least as wise as ourselves, and acting under circumstances more fuvoruble than ours. Two obvious views may be taken of this constitution. The first is its effects upon ourselves, upon the country. We are so prosperous, so happy, every interest is so well preserved, we are apt to be regardless of that human cause to which these blessings are due. Had we goue on under the old confederation, what would Virginia and Massachusetts uow bef Who would have respected them or cured for them But when the constitution was adopted?when that ' K jilurihui tinum" spread over them all, it gave tliein a new character, a new destiny.? Who uow asks whether a man is from Virginia, .New Vork, Alabama or Texas It is enough to say he is u citizen of the United .states of America. The constitution gave our country what the lawyers call a " standing iu court," a righi to be heard in the tribunals of thu world. An American is not said to live on Massachusetts Bay, or.lamis River, but he is a citizen of litis great republican guveruiuent. What, then, has given this momentum to the prosperity of llie country: We can liud no human cause but our united government, it is true, iu pnrty strifes, errors may have been committed, and thu nutionul progress retarded; hut let us look to the aggregate result Let us go back for sixty years, or to the time of the revolution Since that period, in other parts of the world, thrones have trombleu. tottered and fallen; couvulsiniu. shaken nation.' blood (lowed?but have not property and liberty in tbis country been secured? lias tyrannous power trampled on our rights' Property, life, liberty. huve been as well secured as in the best goverumiintu i>f fi.en... II ...x.. I i.l ? - .V ??j UE nmu nc mv mc gl ?-.lL UUtaXcd among nations. Our government has not been nu expensive government. A few thousands, or hundred thousands, may have been improperly appropriated; but who can say that the government lias oppressed the people by weigh* of taxation? Whilst tnxntion is not the great end of government, 1 think every govurnmeut is called on to collect taxes for the good of the nation. In all countries, and in this country especially, there are certain objects which government may accomplish, and which cannot be accomplished otherwise. 1 look upon the govurnmeut as the leader, the conductor, whose duty it is to lead on the country. Thus I hare always lliouqht the improvement of harbors and rivtrt, xf-r. within the constitutional view of the (Government; and I think the Government is bound to take the lead in these matteri of substantial importance. The government appears to me to be like the conductor ou a railroad, whose business it is to go forward and draw the train after liiin ; and if he neglect his duty, or ga wrong in nuy way. i it is no wonder if the train push forward and throw him off the track. (Much laughter and applause ) , The most pressing purpose of the framers of the Con- i stitution in this respect, was doubtless the regulation ?f < commerce with foreign nations; but they cut the cloth i broad euougii and wide enough to embrace these subjects 1 also. I do uota'cribe to Washington.Madison,aud their I companions.the force of intellect to contemplate all the I contingencies which should arise in thu country after 1 them. They did not imagine that there would be g or 300 I ileum vessels on the laker, or that the great Mississippi, from ill mouth to ill source, would he ours,oonstituting a sort of great " inland tea." | Laughter and applause ] Hut their work providesfor it all. The constitution they left juslitlus,and present circumstances require.the execu tion of that policy which shall comprise the whole country as one country,both as to internal and extemial commerce They did not mean that the powers of the government should be determined by the taste of the water, whether fresh or salt, or by thv circumstances of thu position ol some paltry port of entry. In this branch, the constitution is ample and large enough to accomplish these ends with the observance of a just ecouomy. I know of no true economy but the just proportion of expenditure to object \hsolute saving is mere meanness. In a country of such extent as this, the objects of government sh-iild lie to give variety to labor, to bring out the active energies of the people, and dovclope its peculiar abundance. In Massac huso Us we cultivate a barren soil. My learned friend here (Dr. Hitchcock) knows the whole of it. It is hard, sterile grauite. It lias no Virginia beds of coal, no substratum of iron, no salt springs. It is without all these sources (if I may so speak) of subterranean wealth. Nowhere are these advantages more bountifully conferred than upon the happy Inhabitants of Virginia. Within fourteen miles of your city (as my Unriwul f,,i,.n.l !,.II. ...... II,...-..

The university or Jesuitical party succeeded in expelling ill the professors suspected of Liberalism, to replace hem by men devoted to tho late Ministry. The proessors held an extraordinary meeting, and discussed the ixpedieney of making a public demonstration, and of iroeeediug in a body to the residence of M Abel, loexiress their regret nt his resignation.

This del monstration would have produced no effect had no some of the students mentioned the name of Lola Moutes, urging their comrades to make a ucw demonstration under the wiuduws of her dwelling-house. Some of the principal inhabitants endeavoured to dissuade thu students from their purpose, hut the enthusiasm was so great that, towards o'clock in the afternoon, more than ti.OlHJ persons assembled before the residence of the too-celebrated opera-dancer, raising the most menacing anil seditious cries. The streets were frozen, and the mob hurled lumps of ice. in default of stones, against the windows of the house. The troops, which were called to urnts, failed to put an end to the disturbance, which contiuued the greater part of the night. The rioters broke a great number of the street lamps, as well as the wiudows of several public establishments. Kvcu tile Koyal palace was not spared. On the following day. the 'id of March, a large multitude crowded tiie public streets, uttering seditious cries. The Government adopted energetic measures, the troops were eontlneilto tiieir barracks, the urban guard was recalled. and the scenes of the preceding day were not renewed. It is expected that public order will not again be disturbed. As a precautionary measure .the Government has recalled all thu military belonging to the garrison of Muuieh absent without leave.
