Their services will long ba remembered by our fleet and army, for they form part and parcel of the late brilliant, harmonious and conibined operations of both branches of service in the Oulf of Mexico. The Vixen, carrying three 'J4-pounders. and the Spitfire one 64, and two 31pounders. (originally built for the Mexican navy) were purchased by our government on the breaking out of the war. and promptly despatched to the Oulf about the close of last August. The command, though Inferior to their grade in the service, was cheerfully aooepted by Sands and Tatnall. offloersas daring, iotrepM, and active as our service oan boast. These vessels were, apparently, no very formidable accession to tbs naval armament destined to reduce the strong cltv of Vera Cms and the impregnable oastle of 9. Juan da Ulua, but they proved themselves of eminent use and value, from their light construction and draught, in croaalng bars, ascsndTng rivers, towing largsr vesssls, landing foroes, approaching difficult places, and In many other ways, which kept them incessantly and effectively employed. The Vixen and Spitfire (or as they were called, " The Two Follies." a name of familiar endearment bestowed on them by our tars in the Gulf.) led the way In the first premature attaok on Alvarado, the circumstances of which are too well remembered by all to need any further notice here. Their next operations were at Tabasco, which they capbuiou, mvvuuiuk tur mcr upwaruB ui BlXiy mii6? ? nn event made memorable by the fall of the young and gallant Morrl?,tlio worthy and lamented ion of Commodore Morris. Tamplco wan noon after their theatre of action. Thin important oity they captured, supported by the armed boataand email craft of the squadron, and retained poseeMion of it till it waa garrisoned by a detachment of the army. An expedition waa then fitted out against Laguna, lata del Carmen, which place waa also captured about the close of Deocmbur. Here Commander Hands remained as governor for upwards of two montha. maintaining a strict blockade, until summoned to take part in the then uncertain and serious attack upon Vera Crua and Ulua. On this memorable occasion, the Vixen and Spitfire rendered the most signal services, transporting and landing the troops opposite the island of Sacrlficioua, anchoring eioae in to shore with the small Teasels of the fleet to protect the landing, where it waa anticipated, as a matter of course, that an obstinate resistance would be made. As soon as our batteries were ready, and opened upon the city of Vera Cruz, the Vixen and Spitfire took a bold position near I'unto de Hornos, whero. within range of the batteries of both city and castle, they remained all night, nonring in broadsides, till their ammunition, supplied from time to time by the fleet, was exhausted. The spectacle was, indeed, exciting (one might almost say Indlrrous) to see these small steamers in noittle attitude against the terrific battlements before tbem. Hut the gallant Tatnall, regardless of all odds, boldly proposed to his friend and oouirade, Sands, to approach and assail both town and castlo at still closer quarters ; and it was done with promptness and alacrity, oach towing In several small vessels?an act which called forth the admiration of the whole squadron and army A signal from the Commodore to recall them from tholr perilous post w. s suffered by their intrepid commanders to remain, for a long time, uns win ; nor did they retire until an officer was despatched by tno Commodore In a boat, with positive orders, when they reluctautly backed out?the boat's crew which brought the peremptory command cheering them as th?y slowly retired. Aiwr vera i_run ana me ensue nud fallen. Commodore Perry, with his wonted energy and activity, fitted out an expedition against Tuxpan. and the Vixen and Spitfire were again onthc?ing. This wan an arduous labor, and the Vixen and Spitfire stripped for it?relieving themselves of everything superfluous, even to the taking down of their inaata aud spars, to ensure the passing of the dangerous bars. With all these precautions they touched repeatedly; but their extraordinary exertions were crowned with sucoess. and they at last got safoly Into the harbor, where the ill-fated Truxton had some time before been wrecked and captured, it was a proud moment when the Vixen and Spitfire, aided by the boats and schooners, attacked the three forts that opposed them, and after a sharp action silenced them -It was here that tho gallant Tatnall received a severe wound from a musket ball, in the hand, and the Vixen was penetrated by a 34-pound ball below her water-line, whiuh, by some miracle, did not sink her, and whioh, had it (truck a few feet higher, would hare made frightful havoc on her deck, crowded as It was with marines and sailors, who were to storin the works if thev held out. But they landed In safety, took possession or the town and forts, and spent several davs In dismantling and destroying them; and it was here that they enjoyed the inexpressible satisfaction of reoapturing the guns and other materials lngloriousiy taken from the unfortuuate Trnxton, the former of which they found mounted on the works, and used against them. Commodore Perry then proceeded, in concert with a land force under General Onit.m?n ?? amki? al...... .i~ which, it wan well understood, the enemy, dismayed and discouraged, would surrender without any resistance. On arriving at Alvarado, they found the Mexicans hud retired, and the place ig possession of Lieutenant Hunter. This little sketch, Imperfect as it is, and confined to two of the smallest vessels which oomposod the armament in the Gulf, will help to show that, though the army of operations in Mexico have been on a grander scale, the navy also has done all that it was possible to do in lis more limited sphere of action. These two lKtle vessels, particularly, rendered remarkable service; though hurriedly fitted out. and, in many respects, unfitted for severe and efficient duty, they were iucessantly engaged, day and night, and their gallant commanders, who have deserved so well of their country, it is hoped will receive the reward which their Government can so easily bestow. The following letters from Commodore Perry, relate to the trophies sent home from Vera Crut, and to the services of Commander Sands Captain Sands left Vera Crut on the 10th May. reached Norfolk on the 1st of June, whence, leaving the captured guns for furtnor orders, he delivered the flags at the Navy Department. It is understood they will all be ordered to the seat of Government.

This little vessel has been engaged in every naval action or skirmish that bos occurred during tne war. and has always been placed in the midst of the enemy's ilre.

Under the fifth section of the act approved June 18, 1846. the number of officers for the volunteer staff for the forces called into the service of the United States, Is limited te one quartermaster and one commissary for each volunteer brigade of three regiments, and one assistant quartermaster, one assistant commissary, one surgeon, and one assistant surgeon for.each regiment. As nearly all the twelve months volunteers will be discharged in June next, and they are not to be replaced

by an equal number of regiments of similar troops for the war, a reduction of the volunteer staff now in service has therefore become necessary, and the duty of making it has devolved on the President. The performance of this duty is a matter of much delicacy, and the difficulty of making proper discriminations has been anxiously felt. The accessible means of ludging of the relative qualifications of these officers have not been very ample and no doubt many of equal merit with those retained have been left out ; and the a* reflecting on the fitness or faithfulness of those designated to retire, but It la made because the law does not author ise the President to continue all In serrlce.

I have been so constantly and unceasingly the objoct of violent attack, during and since the period that by nn act of an all-wise Providence, and through no volitiou of my owu, the powers and dutios of the Executive were devolved upon me, as to have become quite indifferent as to what should be said of me by others. Hence I have remained silent Amid the attacks of the public press, the fulminations of congressional orators, and the bright scintillations of wit which festive occasions have brought forth at ray expense. Secure in the possession of my own integrity, I have for the most part smiled at the ascriptions of bad motives for my conduct, which had uo purer source of emanation than in the bad motives of those who originated them. Nay, further?when I review the course of my administration, and see its efforts for the public good crowned with complete sucoess in the accomplishment of every important measure, save one, which was suggested or proposed?when I compare the actual oondition of the country on the 4th April. 1841, with what it was on the 4th March, 1846? aud wheu i know that after the struggles of the present day shall have passed away, and those who have taken part in them shall have sunk into their graves, the great er part not even to bo remembered, impartial history will not fail to write a faithful account of all my actions, I inay well be content to let the brawling demagogue or the sly intriguer indulgo in any measure of abuse of mea they may please The facts of my public life aro mat-* ters of record, and can neither be expunged nor altered. The impartial future will see the motive in the act; and the just historian will lookto'tbe good or evil only which will have been developed, and ttnd In the one or the other cause of censuro or of praise. To this ordeal I submit myself without fear. My only solicitude is that conjectures and suppositions, and mere naked statements. unsustuined and unsustainable, should be regarded as authentic, merely becauso tbe source from which they flow is esteemed respectable. It is to guard against this, in reference to one of tbe moat prominent acts of my administration, that 1 now address you, and through you the publie In the Mulional Intelligencer of the 25th May?a paper which deservedly ranks amonst the most rospeotaole journals of the day and which, along with others of tho same high class, will be hereafter regarded as ono of tho lights of history?tho following sentence has arrested my attention Under the head of an article, "The Administration and its Organ," it holds the following language : ' Its editor (speaking of the editor of tho Union) had not been a week Installed in his present official station, before he began to foretell the existing war with Mexico, the curse of whioh, bv his influential agency in tbe Texas annexation scheme, he haa bad more to do in inflicting upon the country than any other person whatever, not excepting President Tyler himself, or the speculators In Texas stocks and lands by wbom he was surrounded, counselled and impelled to that unwise measure." Now, 1 do not mean toolyect te the ascription of great Influence to Mr. Ritchie, then senior editor of the Richmond Enquirer, in aiding to carry out the cause of Texas annexation. Far from It. The course of that able and talented editor has been sensibly felt on all questions of fublic polley for more than a quarter of a century ; and do cheerfully oonfess that, when the Enquirer espoused the Texas cause. I felt Increased assurance of the ultimate consummation of that great measure. Nor do I mean to enter into any contest whether the annexation of Texas was either the immediato or remote canse of the existing Mexloan war. The editors of the Intelligencer, and their able ally in tbe anti-annexation cause, the Hon. Thomas Hart Benton, may have this either way that they please. I will not even stop to inquire whether if the treaty had been ratified by the Senate, we should have bad war or not; but, taking Into consideration that at that moment there existed no prospect of any immediate collision with Great Britian on the Oregon question, and, so far flrom It, that a stronger feeling of amity had been produced between tbe two countries by the then recent negotiation of tbo Ashburton treaty, it may well be doubted whether Mexico, without the hope of suoeor or aid from any quarter. would have waxed war uoon the United States for a matter in which she had no right or intercut, both haying been conquerred from her at Han Jacinto, and the conquest recognised by the whole world. When ehe struck her flrstlblow at Gen. Taylor, our relatione with Great Britain had undergone a material change, and stood, as the world believed, in a most critical condition. Equally far am I from canvassing, at this time of day, the wisdom, or its opposite, of Texas annexation. Unwise the editors and others have from the first declared it to be. The large majority of the people of the United States have differed with them in opinion, and the popular judgmont having been formally entered up In favor Of the measure, the minority should certainly be permitted to utter their complaints when they please and as they please But what I do complain of Is. that the editors should have placed me in the company, and under the influence, of those of whose individuality I have not the Pslightest knowledge: 'the speculators In Texas stock and lands, by whom he was surrounded, counselled and impelled him to that unwise measure '' Now',the editors have over me a decided advantage. If any speculators In Texan stooks or lands ever counselled, much less impelled, me to action upon that subject, I declare myself to be wholly Ignorant of the fact Certain It is, that I never owned a foot of Texas land, or a dollar of Texas stack, in my life?nor do I understand the editors of the as intending to lntlmsito any such thing. The plain truth is, that I saw nothing but the country, and the wholo country?not this or that section, this or that local interest,?but the whole?the good, the strength, the happiness, the glory of the whole country in the measure Nor was it until I received authentic Information that other nations were exerting all their efforts to lnduoe a course of action on the part of Texas, at war, as I (irmly believed, with the permanent interests of the United fltatee, that I gave directions to my lamented friend, Abel P. Upshur, then Secretary of State, to break up and scatter to the winds the web of their intrigues by a dlreot proposition for annexation. I advised with no one, consulted with no one, save him, in taking the initiative. I knew ' no holders of stocks or owners ef lands in the matter and I aver that the public considerations which I have before referred to, alone impelled me to direct the negotiation. Nay. I may go even farther, and declare, that before the initiative was taken, and when the preliminaries were nearly all arranged, their completion being alone prevented by the death of Mr. Upshur and the appointmuni nf un urilunnt pnmmiNulnriAr tn Mr Van /anrlf Texas, I have no reason to bnliove that the holder* of tock or owner* of land" knew anything ot what waa going on?since secrecy was enjoined as indispensably necessary to avoid awakening Into action what we had reason to expect, a more subtle and stIU more active intrigue on the part of other governments, In order to countervail us. Ho much I have felt myself constrained to say, with a view to a true history of tbn measure In its origin?and I trust that what I have said will be sufficient to relieve the minds of tbo respectable editors of the Inltlligtnctr of the impressions under which they have seemed to labor and to which they have given utterance. As to the thousand and one newspaper paragraphs, which would feign persuade the country that I was in leading strings during my term of service, first under the influence of this man. and then of that man, I care hut little; and quite as indifferent am I to the declaration with which sometimes even the Senate chamber has been favored, that my administration was weak.? Weak I readily admit it to have been, in the number of partisans on the floor of Cnurcsa, but it was strong enough to carry its measures, and to illustrate most thoroughly the fact, that to keep the three departments of the government separate and uistinet. no Executive influence in Congress, no Congressional powers in the Executive. and the Supreme Court perfectly independent of both, is not only wise in theory, but sound also in practice. Measures are then alone considered, and the executive may Justly be regarded as strongest which, without partisans, was enabled to oarry through nearly all its measures, and even now sntyecta some of its opponents to the necessity of making speeches in public pieces In order to explain away the repugnance felt by the country to their opposition to those ef most impor tanre.

Mr. Linn belongs to the proselyting order, and 1 in the oapacity of a preacher had made unwelcome, and even forbidden sails, on Mr. K.'s family. Kxasperated at the annoyance, the Colonel unfortunately so far forgot himself as to give the minister a severe drubbing in the street, and hence the prosecution. A disgraceful affair took place last evening on one of ' our principal thoroughfares, in which one of the editorial fraternity was involved. For the sake of the feelings of the latter, who was blameless, I forbear names. A few days since, the contributor to a western mudical journal was shown up. in one of our ablest dallies, for a rather assinlne article which had appeared under sanction of his name. The dector, who no doubt, prides himself as much on his physical, as on his mental qualifications, met the editor, last evening, and without warning, assaulted him with a club, inflicting a severe injury. A sc.utile ensued, but by-standers interfering, the parties were immediately separated. Our city Is full of volunteer troops for New Mexico. They are departing daily, and it is to bo hoped they will soou be all on their way, for, as might be expected, many are inclined to Inordinate indulgence, and the result is frequent scenes of drunkenness und insubordination. Last night, at the Park, a quarrel arose betwen two of them; a desperate couflict ensued, in which 11 both were severely wounded, and oue, it is feared, mortally. J Mahkiets?

Williams, ths new Governor, took the oath of office, and delivered an addreu, of which we give a ay- ^ noptls. After returning thanks for the honor oonferred upon him, he congratulate! the Legislature and the people on the prosperous condition of the State, and said that the diversifying and increasing interests of the State furnish subjects requiring the attention of the Legislature. Among them, the right of free suffrage should be protected, and enactments for removing all opportunities for political corruption should be passed, lie recommended, particularly, the attention of the Legislature to the common school system, which should be encouraged in every possible way, and suggested the propriety of making tho necessary appropriations for the relief of the deaf and dumb. The militia system, he thought, should be promoted. On this subject he says:?" In a republic, a well organised and disciplined militia infuses a neoessary military spirit among the people; gives systematic and efficient direction to their Dhysical force, and makes their citizen soldiers capable or resisting tyranny and oppression, and of repelling invasion." He recommends a continuance of a reservation to fhtureLegislatures to repeal acts of Incorporation whenever 1 the public good required it. In time past this principle ' has worked well, and in his opinion it should be carried 1 out. In regard to the establishment of the sub-treasury J system by the national government, he says this great 1 financial measure, so far from destroying the curronoy 1 and banking Institutions, as was predicted, has, by se- 1 parating these institutions from the transactions of do- t vernnient, restored the treasury to a constitutional ad- 1 ministration and established a sound currency. He '' also speaks favorably of the tariff of 1816. The war r with Mexico received some consideration. lie defends e the policy of the administration in regard to it. and de- ?' nles that it has any connection with slavery In regard I to Southern slavery, ho says the great moral, political ' and social evils resulting from it should be removed as r far aa possible, without violating the principle* of the * constitution. At the ft a mo time it ift our imperious duty ' to abide faithfully by the compromises of that Hacred in- ' strumcnt and to cherish the Union, on which our destiny, hopes and prosperity rest,with fraternal affection, as < the only rock of safety. Slavery is indeed opposed to our free institutions, and injurious to the highest interests of the nation, and our duty to our republican institutions and to the honor and glory of the country, requires us to use all honorable and lawful means to prevent its further extension. In conclusion, he spoke of the Wilmot proviso, which he says has received a hearty response in every part of the country. .lew Books. Thk Tscasirv ok Kvownmii:, tin Lihkarv ok Kkrr.arscE, In 3 vols.

Charge of Grand Larceny ?Officer Relyee, if the Lower Police, errested on Saturday last a young Spaniard by the name of Charlea H. Periro, on a charge of breakiug open a trunk belonging to a Spanish gentleman by tbe name of M. Montaldo. staying at a Spanish boarding house in William street, near Frankfort street, stealing therefrom f>3J0 in doubloons and bank bills. It appears that the accused arrived about ten days ago, lu the same vessel, from the Havana, with M. Montaldo, and put up at the same boarding house; consequently tbey became acquainted together, by which Acquaintance Periro very noon ascertained that Mentaldo had a large amount of money in his trunk; therefore, to tbtain the treasure, the rascal embraced the opportunity on Friduy night last, while M. Moltaldo was it the Opera House, with the aid of an accomplice, by .no name 01 niaratino, to enter tue bedroom or the complainant. break open the trttnk, and carry off the above .mount of money, leaving, >ortunately for.M Montaldo, >ebind them, several thousand dollar*, which vm done ip in a email package, evidently overlooked in their baeto o escape. Maratlno was subsequently arrested, and .laced iu tbo custody of several gentlemen at the boardug house, while the officer was up itaire in a second tory room searching a trunk, when the rascal made a uddun dash for his liberty; jumped out of the window nto the street, and although pretty closely pursued, sade good his escape, at least for the present $180 of he mouey has been recovered,and In all probability tbo lalancu will be obtained to-day, by this aotlve officer ustioo Drinker committed Periro to the Tombs for ex.minatlon.
