Inter call iig from ?dCO< Richmomi, August 16, 1647. No paper* were received at Richmond to-day froan pointssouth of Charleston. I am again indebted to Mr | Hall, the mail agent, for the Picayune of the 8th Instant, containing further detail*, but. no later arrivals of new* from Vera Crui and Pui-bla. The I'icayunt'i advice* from Vera < ruz differ from those from I'urbla, and are ileol'ledly more favorable. The imprnaslonii prevailing at VeraCrus, the Picayune'* correspondent* nay, are derived very much from the English, who are awari* of the effort* making by their mtniater to bring about negotiation* for peace, and prevent the capital railing Into our hand*. A letter in the Picayune from the capital, dated :9th July, say* that Santa Anna in nole Dictator?that Congren con do nothing, becauM there 1* never a nuorum present?that the government la Making a closer "n'"n with European powers?and with this view, haa given orders for tho liquidation of the claims of their sutyaets. About ittO o?en were at Vera Crus when the Fashion left, expecting to leave In a few day* for the army, under General Wilson. Tho deaths at Vera Crus, of vomito, from the 1-Hh to the 31st of July, were, soldiers, 13; quarter-master'* de partment, 1-4 j Mexicans, <J ; others, 3 ; total, 35.

August 14, 1647, The Newt of rAu Morning?The future -The Canting Sutton of Congreu. The Hichmond telegraph ha.* just (10, A.M.) announced the receipt of news from Puebla and the city ot Mexico, which, as you are doubtless printing it off In an extra, while I write, it Is needless to repeat. It will make tbe pulse of the nation throb with excitement. Scott, with a force of flfteen thousand men on the ere of probubly the greatest battle of the campaign, opposed by a forcfl of 4V-J? **' ..... .uv.ur.ouu tUI UOClBlUn OI 1116 0*11011>1 legislature against pears?such is the burthen of the intelligence. But there la one feature In this news ominous of a protracted struggle. Thu Mexican Congress has declared Itself powerless to make poace?without Authority to negotiate. Who then is to ratify * treaty ? No act of the sovereign people has, aa yet conferred on Bant* Anna, or upon any other individual the power to mak* peaoe, but on the contrary, every manifestation of the popular will has tended to the withdrawal of raoh power*. It would appear, therefore, that no repreaentatlve embodiment of the Mexlcau nation exists at this moment, for It is the inalienable prerogative of such embodiment of sovereignty to make peace as well as to declare war. If, then, this Congress have really declared Itself powerless to make peace, as It is aald, we must either, at onee, after taking possession of the capital, build up a government favorable to peace, and sustain It by men and money, or else cease offensive operations, hold what we possess, and wait until the Mexioan people show symptoms of returning reason. Should the war oontlnue until the next session of Congress, a strong effort will, without doubt, be made, to force upon the administration the adoption of Mr. Calhoun's plan. In the House of Representatives, there will, fudging from present Indications, be a majority in its favor. In the Senate the administration will have clear majority of Ave over the mixed opposition?the whigs and the followers of Mr. Calhoun. But notwithstanding this majority, the administration will fare badly for want of a leader in either house. In the Senate there are half a dozen whigs quullfled for the leadership of that body, whilst on the democratic aide, . wyiu nut limine una properly qualified for that Important pout. Mr. Hen ton's insufferable egotism and overbearing temper alienated many who would otherwise be ardent supportera of the administration. He baa already driven more than one into the ranks of Mr. Calhoun's party. The finance oommitteea will b? the most important to the administration next session. for on the expenditures will the hardest battles be fought. Krom the finance committee of the Senate the administration ha a ioat ita chief support?Dixon H. Lewis?once a firm adherent, but who now openly avows his predilection toe strange gods. As a counterpoise to thia, however, the whiga have loat their ablest financier, George Kvans, a man whose absenco from the Senate Is regretted by friends and opponents. Another important post?the Chairman of the Committee on Foreign Affairs In the Houae?will be filled by a whig, which, under existing circumstances, will be extremely awkward. One thing la certain, Mr. Calhoun'a plan will not b? adopted by the administration. Aa the Senate will be constituted, the i'reaident cannot be forced to its adoption, and neither he, nor a alngle member of hla cabinet, will ever voluntarily accede to it. The opposition will scaroely venture to refuse the neceaaary appropriations for the prosecution of the war, If it is to be prowouted. A Presidential election Is approaching, and the war is, and hus been from the beginning popular. Even la the last Congress, there were found but twenty-eight in the House, and three in the Senate, who ventured to rsoord their votes against tho loan. It is but fair to suppoas, Hint the opponents of tho war will be even In a smaller minority in the next Corgress. as I doubt very much f lie most dlliirent aeureh wnnlil ?wmmH I" . ? ? ?v-,..t^l>| i Itody mo every way unworthy to reprneent the Amerl. mn people u* wu the twenty-ninth Congrt**.
