Aseaily as January, 1846, our army was advanced beyond the Mexican boundaries of Texas, and upon the left bank of the Kio Grande occurred the fir*t hostilities, and tha first shedding of American and Mexican blood. Waa thl* the lnvaaion of American territory,and the spilling of Amerloan blood on such territory ?

Our troop* were marched into a country claimed and occupied by the Mexican*?1? not thla war on our Dart? The President's waa not correct In point of fact, and cannot be mads (o. This la a pretest. Other cause* were brought forward after the war commenced. One was, that Mexico would not leoeive oar Minister Plenipotentiary ! 1* that eauie of war?for an Executive war ? ('ougrem would not declara war on luch grounds. At any rat* it was not a circumstance tbat called for such speedy action that the Executive could not lay it belore Congress, then before him. It la but another of the unfounded pretexts on whish the war is sought to be defended. -Still another?and the third?of these preteits is, that Mexico had deolined to pay her debts due cltlxen* of this country. This was not put forth In the aot of Congress deolaring war to exist. It la an after thought ? This matter of debt waa one of long atandlng; many sessions of Congress had been held during the existence of the debt. Yet no war waa declared on this ground., And if it was a cause for the war, It surely afforded no pretence for an Executive war, as this is. It is a pretext, and nothing but a pretext. What, then, was the , object of the war? I do not profess to possess more, if so much, sagacity than other men; but to me the answer to this question Is as plain ns a turnpike?as visible aa the sun that now shines upon us. An eminent statesman?perhaps the most eminent?of the party of the administration; Indeed he is so enUnent that the wonder is that the administration does net belong to him, instead of he to the administration; this gentleman, I mean Mr. Calhoun, declared at the last session in Congress, that if there had been no annexation of Texaa there would have been'no war; and that the Immediate cause of the war waa the ordering, by the Executive, be it remembered, of our troopa to advance frem Corpna Christl to the llio Orande. ilenoe this question is settled?no annexation no war. I am no apologist for Mexico. I have a poor opinion of the Mexican government. I pity the people of the country, and should pity them the more If they knew the state they wera in. It is the worst governed of any country in the world that pretends to l?e civilised. It has been for twenty yean the prey of every military upstart, who hail money onoiltfh to nt lln ft mUai&hlit ?rmw UVnm IftM h?n was the baitln of San Jacinto, to 1841, Mexico had no authority over Texas, no juit claim upon her territory In 1841--;-3, Texas was an independent kovi rnmeut hi nominally, so practically, so recognlned by i ur own and other government*. Mexloo had no r round of com plaint in the auiietation of Texan; w? are the party to <*.oaipUiu?we did nut want Tex-ui But ?he did take offtu.w; nbe persisted in cluinitag Texas as her provinoe. niif aaitliad h*en *n independent territory,and broke oil '..eruu of nia.ty with our government, calling home tier ministers, and refusing to receive our own. But tuls was not war -very far from it. I contend that the piecise object of the war wss simply this Parades became Fresideut in March, 1844. Santa Anna was exiled to Cuba, upon what it called half-pay, la Jmna of the same year. But he was discontented with his residence there, and I have strong suspicions that his half-pay was never paid Through 1845 this statex>t things eontinued; matters between the two governments were unsettled aad unsatisfactory. Mexico held back and was warlike in her tone. In January, 1*46, the United States army was ordered to advance to the Rio (irande; in order, says Mr. Buohanan, to act as Congress should authorise in case of the rejection of Mr. Slidell, then la Mexico. At this time camo forth rumors that Santa Anna was more favorable to peace, that is, more willing to accommodate on the annexation difficulty, that Tarcdes; and on that very day in January, a message was sent to Commodore Conner, ef the Oulf squadron, saying that if Santa Anna came that wav to let him into Mexico? how came it to be supposed 'hat he was likely to come that way.' About the tame time, Alexander Slidell, brother to the Minister to Mexico, was lent to Cuba by the government. At thia time, also, a person named Brown wan an agent of the United States there. It was a matter of general converaat'on in Cuba that Santa Anna had been invited to return to Mexico by the United States authorities. The President said Parades was the obetaole in the way of settling our difficulties. The inference is plain, strong. On the llth of May war actually commenoed. On the 1st of June a proclamation, prepared at Washington, was sent to General Taylor, to be distributed broadcast throughout Mexico, as fast as ho progressed into the country. This purported to give the oauses of the war to the' Mexicans. It set forth that we are friends of Mexloo ; that the war was waged on account of the debts, and the rejection of Mr. Slidell by the then existing government, and a supposed declaration of Paredes, of which I never huard or could ever learn any other authority. The fact is not stated, intimated or alluded to, that was in the act of war.? It was said that we came as friends, and that we desired to keep the Mexioan government from falling Into the hands of a European prince, a proposition to whtoh effect, it was thrown out, was on foot. Home time in the same month. June, Santa Anna went to Vera Cm*, passed into the interior, issued his proclamation or pronunciamento. This, too, said he came as a friend te put dtwn tyrants and avert the impending monarchy The ideas and language are strikingly like those set forth through General Taylor. Whether Santa Anna borrowed from Mr. Polk, or Mr. Polk borrowed from Santa Anna, or whether it was an extraordinary coincidence of thought en the part of two grejit geniuses, I will not attempt to say. Sufficient that they are remarkably similar in language as well aa character. (Jen. Halas, under Santa Anna's pronunciamento, overthrew Paredes, and he in turn was banished. Santa Anna became the head of the nation. The sequel all know. War, more direful and bloody than ever, raged, and is mow only terminated by an armistice, how long to continue no one knows. With equal mortification and regret did I read, in the last message of the President, the admission that his object In assisting Santa Anna to return to Mexloo was to overthrow the existing government.aad raise up another more favorable to our purposes. He hoped to get out of the difficulty growing out of annexation by fomenting a revolution in Mexico ! How undignified does this appear in such a nation as ours?a nation of twenty millions of people ?professing to be governed by the noblest and purest of motives?setting ourselves up as models for the world. A general understanding between Santa Anna and the President is evident, from the facts I have stated. Santa Anna pat himself at the head of the armies but Instead of moving toward peace, moved toward war The President can have the satisfaction of knowing that in t.ha ruin* aucera ami KlnnH?

We oannot make a free citisen out ef a wimeu not accustomed to self-government. He must be fitted to be free before he ean become a Just freeman?a citisen of a republic.? Wham in the State Department, said Mr. Webster, It was represeuted to me that it was very important to our oommsreial interests that a port in California, or a place where Amerisaus could enter and do business as in one of tbeir own oities, should be secured. 1 therefore entered into negotiation for such an object at the port of San Franolsco. But 1 entertained no idea of adding new States or new territories to the Union. Peace may soon come. I hope to hear of it to-morrow. It may bring real peaoe; it msy bring the seeds of strife, and open new danger to the country. It Is impossible to tell before hand what will oome, or how It will be neaessary to act in the event of that result. Last winter the whig* . in the United States Senate, both from the north and south, voted, with perhaps one exception, against any more territory being added to the Union, 'lhe domooratio Senators from both sections voted the opposite way. The northern democracy wish to oarry on the war, get territory and let it into the Union as States, but Make them free The southern democracy take the same course, excent that thev would have the new terrl. torjr (lav* territory. So agreeing m to the prosecution of the war and the addition of more territory, they unite in favoring these proportion*, and would settle afterward the dispute as to the new States being slave or free. 1 have not seen one respeotable fair minded mHn of the south, who objects to the north using all its power to prevent the Increase of the slave power. I have leund none so unreasonable as to dispute our right to this. With the same flrmnens with which I would resist any augmentation of slavery, I shall not endanger the constitution by interfering with slavvt-y as it is established at present In the States. What u established la fixed. We cannot go baok. But for the future I am for looking out for our rights. Some of the people of the South make one objection to the Wilmot proviso, and that is, that the new territory, if added, will be settled by Northern families, who represent free labor, and who will live by their own labor , while the people of the Sourh cannot emigrate to these new States because they will not b? permitted to take their slaves with them, Hence the additional territory will be for the benefit of the-free population only. But these people should remember that the present representation of the slave States is an admitted Inequality, and by extending Have States, that inequality will be in a great degree increased and strengthened. 1 am no prophet, nor the son-of ajftropbet; but were I to attempt te prophecy, the last thing that I should dare prediot would be the oeurae of the northern democracy on this subjeot. Some of them doubtless will go with the Wilmot proviso principle, but thore can be no doubt that the general sense of the party is against It. The proceedings of the latelooofoco State Convention prove this fully.

Chloride of calcium, even of one per cent, does Injure salt, and makes the salt dlllqueaoe. or liquify. I have In my cabinet water from most of the salines in the United States, and also the mineral salt from several miner, and salt made at the salt l onds of Turka laland, Curaooa, by solar beat. I have salt water from Montesuma and Lookpit, which has a specific gravity of near WOO, but it holds so much muriate of lime in solution, that unfits It for making salt, exeept for agrloultaralJpurpoT**. There have been great mistakes mads, and by men who are exoollent chemists, too, In giving opinions of the quality of salt water by the per cent of chloride of sodium contained in the fluid. That is not the important matter; but it is, does the water contalu any deleterious property! A simple statement will afford an excellent illustration. A sample of sugar, by analysis, was found to oontaln 8a per cent of pur* sugar, and IA per cent pure silex; another sample, found by analysis to contain !I9>? per cent pure sugar, and X per oent sulphate of iron. The greater p r cent of pure sagar is of no oonsequence, for the reason, that the half per cent sulphate of iron unfits the sugar for use?spoils It. 1 have very often seen comparisons of per oent of chloride or sodium in water rrom Hit springs, made with Turk* Island and Liverpool salt, and it i* very Important to men expending money In new Halt work*, to eorreot that matter; and etiemiiU alio should bear thU In mind when expressing opinion* of the value of salt water (ent them for analyst*.

It is understood alse that at this oausus there waa an interview between two commissioners from each of the sections, and a definite agreement waa declared to have been made in regard to the mode or organising the convention. Messrs. King and Wadsworth were the commissioners upon the part of the radicals, and Messrs. Stryker and Blrdsall on the part of the conservatives. We shall see how entirely their negotiations failed to effect the desired object. The convention assembled at ten o'clock this morning, in the large room of the Empire Hotel. The delegates being assembled (except Mr. Harlng, of Rockland, as was afterwards ascertained,) Mr. Chandler, of Genesee, stepped upon the rostrum, and oalled the convention to order. Mr. O. intimated to the convention that the mod* of organisation had been already satisfsctorily arranged by th* commi**ionar*, of whom I hav* spoken ; the plan, he said, was to appoint a taller from each of the seotions, whose duty it would be to call the names and to raoelve th* credential* of delegate*.

Mr Van Bumin ?Very well, sir?1 certainly|bave no objection to the appointment of these tellers, for the ob, jeots you have mentioned. Messrs.

On motion, the tellers then proceeded to call the several counties, In alphabetical order. It appeared that there were two sets of delegates from the following countiesAlbany, Eriw, Lewis, New York, Ontario, Oneida, and Otssjgo. The credentials of all tne delegates from these counties were reoeived by the tellers, except the contesting delegate from Ontario, (Mr. Smith,) who did not appear. The delegates having all come forward with their credentials, with two exceptions. Mr. Gain rose, and observed to the convention, that it was very necessary to preserve the striotest order, and he hoped that every person present would feel It to be his duty toaid In the preservation of order In all proper ways. (iKoini P. Barxkr, (F.x-Attorney General,) of Erie, (UDtmiiea some ?xiemporaai>ous ooservauons in vinaioatlen of himself, and of the legality of hi* election aa delegate. He waa followed by Mr. John Van Buren, who Intimated that he regarded the teller* aa the depositaries of all the information in possesion of the convention, in regard to the olalma of delegates to seats, and that he did not wish to be regarded as conoedlng that any contestant had a claim to his seat if he did not notice every contrary insinuation, and rise to disprove it. Mr. BaAor,of New York, recapitulated some transactions concerning the election of delegates in New York city; and he observed that the delegates having all presented their credentials, the functions of the tellers just appointed by the convention, had now oeased. He moved, therefore, that Robert Monell, of Chenango, be appointed temporary chairman ot the convention until a president could be elected. Mr. B. urged that there waa an imperative necessity that a chairman should be chosen without delay, Inasmuch as the convention had now no head nor responsible offloer to preserve order. He was replied to by Mr. Panto* Kinu.of St. Lawrence, who spoke In an extremely animated and eloquent manner. Mr. K. was opposed to the motion of the gentleman from New York, (Mr. Brady.) he could not see why the tellerslcould'not properly aot as temporary ohalrman of the convention. The design of Mr. King seemed to be to forego the election of a presiding officer for the present, and with the tellers presiding, to submit the disputed cases to the convention to be decided instantly by that body,where there were no good reasons to show that the claim of the contestant to a seat waa not frivolous, io<l that 11 ?y not evidently made with a view to eiclnde the legitimate delegate from participating in the organisation by putting this oase in charge of a I committee lint where the claims of the oonteitanta for* aeata appeared to be nearly balanced, so as to render their hasty and Inconsiderate settlement an aot of injustice, than be was willing to put them in charge of committees to be duly appointed. Mr. K. said he had perfect reliance uppn the judgment of the delegates, and upon their ability to settle the disputed cases satisfactorily. Mr. Bmi? thought that his friend, last up, was in error. The very first step of a convention was to organise. That oould not be done without a presiding officer. He professed to have no other object in view. His proportion was, tbat delegates, whose seats were contested, should not be permitted to vote for a presiding officer. Mr Kim insisted that the tellers were, for the time being, presiding officers of the convention. Mr. Teckham assumed, tbat the convention was not in existence until its organisation waa effected. He believed that the incipient movement toward an organization was the election of a temporary chairman. Mr. lUaiKN attempted to defend the position assumed by Mr. I'reston King; tbat it was perfectly competent for the convention to defer the selection of a President until It had declared what delegates were entitled to seats. Mr. Seymou*, of Oneida, followed upon the conservative side of the chamber. He was apprehensive ot a collision between some of the delegates, and he urged a speedy organization of the convention, as a means to Erevent collisions. Mr. 8 alluded to a contestant for >is seat in rather severe terms. The contestant ef Mr. Seymour's seat, waa Mr. Miller, of Oneida. Mr. Miller being present, immediately replied to Mr. Heymour. He said that Mr. 8. waa as muoh a contestant for his (Mr. M.'s) seat, as be (Mr. M.) was a contestant for Mr. 8eymour's seat. ^Mr. Sr.rmot? a bow submitted to the oonventloa, in a plaintive manner, that the collision he had apprehended had already oocurred. Mr. gTaono called for the question upon the motion of Mr. Brady. Mr. Kield, of New York, moved to lay Mr. Brady's motion upon the table : A very violent, vindictive, and lrrascible debate followed between Messrs. Monell, King, Cambreleng, Field, Van Buren and Litohfleld. The speech of Mr. Tambreleng was alone an exception; that speech waa entitled to praise; it was a solemn appeal to the delegates of both sections, whom he declared had compromised the dignity of men and of the Htate, to forget their personal animosities, and to be willing to make any sacrifice, however great to preserve the ascendancy of true democratic principles. The speech of Mr. Van Buren was one of the most sarcastic Invectives I ever heard from tha lips of any man. In It there ware also passagss full of simple power and beauty, and imprassiveneaa. Mr. Van Buran was followed by Messrs Doollttle, Mitchell, Shafer and Rathbun. The speech of Mr llathbun was great; it waa, in part, an eulogy of his friend, ftllas Wright, and In part a moat eloquent and powerful effort to consolidate the seotlons. and cause them to sot with harmony. I have not** of hi* speech, I but I have no tlmo t? write It out to-day.

The population i lare U of an entirely different cLaae from that at Ban ran a lac o, for as that if almost entirely American, this i purely Californlan, with all the peculiarities and labits that attach themselves to the Spanish character 'hi* ia a town of about two hundred houses, built a* all iwuaea are in California, of ** adobie," a mixture of mad ad ftraw, baked in the tun. They are but one atory, of .bout twenty feet in height, many of them contain but >ne room, and the mejor part even of the most respeetaile "caaaa" have floora laid with the solid face of mother arth above, lumber being toe expensive an artiole Is his laud of no taw mills to allow the luxury of a board loor. They are all covered with a roof of tiloe, many of ibriu whitewaahed, and feen from the beaeh, the town presents a neat and pretty, though rather eombre appearinoe. Santa Barbara ia located upou a level plain,* hich unbraces an'area of. some ten'squaro miles, extendng seme dlatanee back to the town. Before it ia ipread out a magnificent nheet of water, whoso beaeh ixtends nearly thirty milea along the coast, from the two pointa that endue* th*- bay of Santa Barbara. Ob the right Is a gently sloping hill rising to the hrlaht of nearly a thousand feet, from which the town appears like a little panoramio map, or a village of mud houoea suoh as ?chool boya mould in clam shells; directly baok, and extending about twenty miles alon^ the coaat. ia a ruggtd range of lmpaaaable mountains, a natural barrier to protect the town from any invasion by an enemy from that quarter. A mile back of the town, and overlook log It, Is the old mission of Santa Barbara, with IU white w?U? and cross-mounted splree. Here, bowwrr, where a few years slnoe allw&a presperity and enterprise, now U ruin and decay. This mission tormerly was potitMtd of dome ten or fifteen thousand head of cattle and several thousand horse* ;(matiy branobet of useful labor were carried on by the Indiana who were brought in from the wild* in the interior, and partialis olvllised under the care of the good missionaries who had the control of the mission estate*. The Mexican government in its wladom, or rather in it* stupidity, however, ?aw fit to "eec ularlie" this property, withdrew it from the control of the padrea and >ent '-adminietrado/fs" from Mexloo, who, after filling their own pooketa from the property, usually left it in a worse ooudition than they found it. The missions are now nothing more than purely religion* establishments; and the iudians, who under their control and the fatherly care of the padres, had been made deoent and useful men, returned to their tribe* .and became ten time* worie than before. At the mission of Hanta Barbara there are now two padrea, Uonsalles and Antonio, both enlightened and liberal men, and the former one ot the mo?t perfect gentlemen I ever met. The population of the town of Santa Barbara M about one thousand, exclusive of our troops, which have made an addition of wo ? it within the few weeks past. This l- the bUMUl popnla ion, the qutit it reton, (people of reu j; . >rnian* modestly term themselves in couUtu.i:!ii I. u from the Indian*.

Besides these. there are at the lowest calculation five dog* to every man, as snarling good for nothing curs as ever barked. The smallest, and at the same time by tar the largest population, however, is the oommualty of "pulgM," (fleas) which infest every house in innumerable quantities. To one whe has been reared in the stirring aud busy life of a Yankee town, or has passed his years amid the diu of a great commercial city, the appearance of things here is strange indeed. The merry song of the busy laborer is never heard to break the air here. The rude but cheerful musio of the hammer and trowel never disturb the sleepers In the morning. The happy faces of workmen returning to their homes after the dally toll are never seen, and the>lr of . * contentment that dwells around and In the laborer's cot, la here displaced by the laxy appearance that might have marked looks of the inhabitants of the castle of indolence. In this whole town there ate but two native mechanics, a batter and a shoemaker. Home one or two others, employ half naked Indians in making shoes, saddles, and some email articles of household furniture. The " rasou" mount their ' caballos" In the morning, ride about the town all day, smoke "oigaritos," drink "aguardiente" get up horse races and cook tights, attend fandangos" at night and turn in for a sleep, from which they uwake to auother daily round of their "arduous labors.''
