AflUri in Washington. Wasmiwotom. May 6, 1847 Mr. Atoeha'l Ltlhr to Mr. Rtjon?Tertnt of Peart A letter, purporting to be a oopy of one written by Mr Atocha to Mr. Rcjon, while the former was. lately, iu Mexleo, containing a statement that the United States government would be wllllngto make a treaty, offensive and defensive , with Mexloo, is, I perceive, in course of extensive circulation. The letter may or may not be genuine?it is not my purpose to question its authenticity? but.Mr. Atocha never received authority to make such an offer; nor was he ever given to understand, officially or otherwise, that such a proposition has ever been, or could ever be, for one moment, entertained by the government of the United Status. It has always been the policy of our government to keep clear of entangling alliances. The wisdom of this course has beeu abundantly vindicated in our past history But if we ever could be Induced to depart.froin this policy. Mexico, of ail the nations of the earth, is not the one with which we could, with any hope of avoiding incessant broils and bloodshed, enter into an alliance offensive and defensive. That country hu not, unhappily, since she became independent, given evidence of the possession of any extraordinary dUoretlon, rendering an intimate alliance with her either safe or prudent. Her treatment of this nation, whose friendship she ought to have cultivated. has ever been wayward and unkind But were she a paragon of prudence and wisdom, an alliance, offensive and defensive, would still be out of the question I The idea of such a thing has never been entertained by tlie administration. It is poasible Mr. Atocha may have become acquainted, in conversation, with the views of the administration, regarding the terms of an adjustment of our difficulties with Mexico. On such cognisance he may have based his assurances to Mr. Kqjon that the terms set forth in his letter to that gentleman would be acceptable to the government of the L'nlted Htates. But it is evident, from what I have before remarked, that he must have strangely misconceived the views of the administration. 1 have frequently stated what these viuwsare. It is, however, like tracing lines on the sea shore?the Impression is effaced by every succeeding tide of rumor, and it Is necessary to retrace the lines after every ebb. Once for all, then, the administration will require, as the conditions of a treaty of (>eace, the cession of New Mexico und the Californlas, although in regard to Lower California. I think, if its possession stood in the way of peace, the administration would not insist upon it This, with the right of way across the isthmus of Tehuantepee is all that will be insisted upon. Although the lino of th? thirty second degree of latitude, from it* intersection with the Kin Orande to the head of the (iuif of California, would appear to be fixed upon by gene ral content, an an equitable boundary, itill, snoutd Met ico now proffer negotiation. I am confident our government would not chaffer about boundary It In disposed to treat In a liberal spirit with a a nation which, however perverse it han proved in forcing this war upon the United State*, hoe yet evinced an beuorahle gallantry in tta prosecution worthy a belter cause OALVIENS1S WtiHtsoTos, May 0. 1847 Hurrah?Mart Olariout S'txct from the Yankrt f'o tunlam. We have a telegraphic report to-day from Fredericksburg. briefly announcing the decisive overthrow of Santa Anna near Jalapa, by den Scott You will have received the despatch We have every reason to believe it to be true, and that there Is no mistake about ft This will locate den. Scott and the body of hit army very comfortably in Jalapa. or Xalapa, (but always pro nounced iiaiapa) at which point he will be above the Irrrti calirnltt. or hot lands, of the sea board, where the yellow fever and the dysentery are so prevalent In the summer Jalapa I* in a finer and more delicious rlimale than Monterey, and the army will doubtless remain there to recuperate and to receive reinforcements, in expectation, in the meantime, that the mission of Mr I rist will be more successful as a peace mission than the long and unprofitable Journey of Henor Atoeha But some say that den Scott Is authorised to offer the enemy peace after he has thoroughly licked them, especially 11 there be auy person or person* in authority within his reach. Peace, however, is an ignet /alum -it appearalways within reach, and yet we can't catch It.

Wo believe they are hoth right, and that Congress id equally tmplicated. It ts a triangular thing The annexation by Mr i alhoun was the base line of the war. the inarch of the arm* to the Rio tlrande was the perpendicular, and the tacit assent of Cougress.a* accessory after the fact, was the hypotenuse, closing up all side*, being equal to the square of the two other sides, and reducing the war to a mathematical demonstration. The provocations of the war. without being specified, in the outset, were set down as a single provocation by Congress, to wit, 'the act of Mexico " The act is not specified But we are sure it was either the act of Mexico in refusing to entertain Slidell as ambassador?or tinact of Almonte in returning home on the annexation < f Texas, or tho act of Parade* in ousting Merrera, or the set of Arista in crossing the Rio Grande to capture Gen Taylor, or the various acts of Mexico in the evasion of payment of indemnities, or the act of that government declining to sell out to John Tyler But of ail these, the act of tho American Congress of the 13th May, 1840,
