Mv Dcar Si* Your letter of the 10th, and its enclosure*, came to me to-day. and I haaten to reply. None of the artlolM to which you allude had met my notice, although Mr.Bryant sends'to me the semi-weekly Pott. I was not aware, therefore, that my opinion* on the subjeot of the Wilmot Provide had become a matter of news paper disoussion I certainly was not aware that they could be a matter of dispute or doubt I have not been ambitious to promulgate my opinions upon this or any publio subject; but I have not, at any time, as you are a double witness, withheld the expression or them upon this subject when called upon to express them. If the iueation had been propounded to me at any period of my public life, shall the arms of the Union be employed to conquer, or the money of the Union be used to purchase territory now constitutionally free, for the purpose of planting slavery upon It, I should have answered, No ! And thm answer to this question I* the Wilmot Proviso, as I understand It I am surprised that anyone should suppose me oapable of entertaining any othor opinion or giving any other answer as to hucE a proposition. The two conversations to which you allude, the one had with yourself at Majer Klagg's, and the other held at the boardlDg house of Messrs. Townsend, Small, Stewart and Kayser, are fresh in my recollection, and In both of whioh I expressed frankly, the opinion* t enter tain el. both in relation to the Proviso and Col Young's resolutions, and those opinions were deoidedly favorable to both. I have repeatedly stated In such conversations, and I think 1 did to yon, in the conversation at Major Klagg's, that Mr. King In making himself the author of the movement at the last session of Congress, had acted without any consultation with me : and that if I could have had my personal cboloe, 1 should have preferred that be would have left that to some other person, because It would be and was charged that he was acting from motives not avowed, and through my impulsion Yet that I had no complaint to make against Mr. King, and mo right to ask htm to yield his sense of duty to my personal wishes, because I knew his opinions and the strength of his feelings upon that subject, and was therefore satisfied that he was aoting from the most siacere, conscientious convictions of right, and that I considered bis movement rlaht in Itulf ?.ni? I am surprised at the Otobe article*, an, with the exception of such rem?rka an ! have just tepeated, a* to Mr King's being the mover of the I'rorlso. I can have Mid nothing from which any man could Infer any disapprobation ou my part of Mr. King'* course, and I trust these remark* caunot properly be denominated a disapprobation of his act,much less of bis proposition I hare marked this letter " private" to show that it is not Intended for publication, but I wish you to show it to Mr. Bryant. At the some time, I wish to say to you and to him that when it can be properly avoided, I prefer not to have my personal opinions upon any public question made the subject of discussion in the public papers. It is Impossible to separate suoh discussions, in the public mind, from an impression either that the Individual himrclf wishes his opinions promulgated, or that his friends promulgate them because they think they will influence others : whilst if there Is a dispute about what opinions are really entertained, the Implication to many Minds Is that contradictory opinion* have been expressed I know It is not, in this esse, my fr>ands who are promulgating my opinions, bat that thi-y are trying to correot erroneous opinions imputed to me My only object, therefore, In this remark, is to request that the subject may be disposed of, so far as >lr. Bryant aud yourrelf shall think it practicable, without a protracted discussion. It may be cloned before you get this ; but if not, 1 suggest that Mr Bryant should say in a very summary way, that he has no knowledge of who the" warmest and moat sincere friends of Governor Wrlubt" are. referred to by the Qloh*. but that he speaks from eviJenoe that proves theui mistaken a* to the opinions of that gentleman upon thi* subject; that he Is opposed tn principle to the oonquest or purchase of territory, now free. for the purport or Incorporating slavery upon it; that he thinks It an appropriate time to declare that principle, whan an appro,,ri.itinu is asked to purchase the territory ; aad that *uch a (declaration, made at such a time, is not roppi'sl;I' ll to tha administration, unless It ba avowe d that the administration withes to acquire the territory for th? extension of slavery, in whloh oase ha would think the administration ?mn? mJ wHta KHW UOVMttblUU rlnht Something like this, I think, would and the matter or bring out the names referred to, and I have no Ida* of the latter. btoiUN I do not think there are any tuoh namn to b? given You may think me over sensitive upon this irabjeet. I am ao, aa to the appearanoe of a wish to k*ep myself or iny opinion* before the publio I find myself almost too happy In my quiet homa, and I alnoerely hope that no event will call me again into public life. I have baan a long time und? r the carea and responsibilities of high office, And I did net know what a relief it would b? to find myaeli again a free man. I can icaroely yet realite the senna' Ion. and a resumption of those oaresand responsibilities is already a fesrful and unpleaaiag thought. 60 far from experiencing regret at my discharge, taking Into consideration the manner of it alao, I find It ha* made me happier than I had hoped to be, and 1 have no desire to try again in the hope of a better termination. I thank you most sluoerely for your friendship manifested upon this, as upon all occasions. A few sueh friends and a tew suoh wvldenoe* of friendship, retained in defeat, are mora than a compensation lor the defeat Itself. With since respect, I am truly roan, HII-AS WRIOHT Oae boat buiMlo* Crm ?t Rvoli?st?r h??s turned cut I HMI boats linos the lit of Jan last. mny^m^nij |n D?rld Dudley Field of N?w York, hw aeoepted the appeintment of I'otamlsslonur upon practice and pleading, to fill th* iuuct ctuMd by the resignation of Mr. ' HU1, Jr. The Liberty party In Ontario county, hart Dominated 1 Reuben Sleeper, of Livingston, as Senator, and Ella* 9.

It is a very fair statement, and must oonvlnoe any one who reads It, not only of the feaaiblllty of the rente, out 01 iu grtat Importance and probable productiveness. The report take* up the several head* uiual in sueh papera, and dlsousses eaoh one separately?perhaps we may as well do the same. And first, the route proposed: It is to comueuoe at New Haven, oross the Connecticut at Middletown,pass through Windham and Hampton, and strike the eastern boundary of the State, near the northeast .corner of Kllllngly. A petition is now pending before the Rhode Island Legislature, for permission for its continuation through a portion of that State AU the rest of the line, so far as legislative aotion in the matter of charters is ooncerned, is perfsetiy secured. The nature of the ground along tha route, is said to be well otlculated to furnish a Arm and durable road-bed, while the obstructions of rook are suoh as can be removed with comparative ease. The Connecticut is the only water of any importance along the route, and this is to be crossed by a bridge. The matter of gradients, ascents and descents, and curvature*, is considered and shown to present no obstacle worth mentioning. The oost of the entire route between the two eitles, including a complete outfit of cars, engines, ho., is estl mated at 92.SCA 000 or $80,806 42 per mile The entire dlstanoe is 'J 10 or 311 miles, the distance from Newjiaven to the eastern line of the State 89 and l-10th miles One advantage possessed by this route over all others, and which must Impart to it a permanent superiority, is iw remarkable directness. It Is the shortest route between the two greatest commercial cities of our country being tweuty-tive miles less than any other Another advaaUgf Is, that it will form a mode of oommunloatlon between the east and west portions of the State of Con* neotieut, the want of which has oaused very much o 1 this intercommuninatlon to pass either over the waters of the Sound, or by a elroaltous railway route in Massa ohuaetta. A third, and an Important one, may be fouad to the fact that careful and acourate italUtio* show that the way travel and bualneM alone, will yield a handsome support to the road, without reference to the through travel. And it Is not too much to ?ay, that the resouroea of Connooiiout, ax yet undeveloped, and almost entirely unknown, will lnoroaae this aupport beyond the moet anguine expectations. It doservn alio to be mentioned that it will aerve aa an important outlet to tho?e portiona of Maaaachusetta and Khode Inland, which lie aoutheasterly of the route Aa to the apeed expected to be attained, Improve men ta are propoaed In regard to the rail and the enginea of auoh a character, aa will enaure a paaaage of only aeven hour* between the two cltlea. } .The " muoh vexed-question''Jof the bridge aoroaa the Connecticut, ia treated at oonalderable length, and the argument* to ahow lta really trilling obatructlon to the navigation of the river, are clearly placed before the public. All that can be asked of thoM who have oppoaed the bridge ia aoalm and fair oonalderatlon of theae statements. In truth, we invite the moat aearchlng Inveatlgatlon of theae arguments, aatlafled that the reault would be a aurrender of prejudice* aa unfounded In reality aa they have been bitter in their Influence. The road ahould by all mean* be built. Capitalist* can find no aurer investment. The two greateat commercial omporluma in the country are propoaed to be united by a road, whose dlrectneaa forbid* the poaalbllity ot it* ever being cupuraeded or *ucce*afully rivalled. Official document* and atatlatloa, carefully oollated, prove the adequacy of the way travel and bualneaa alone to aupport It handaomely, got to mention the tide of travel that muat oontlnually ebb and flow between the termini of *uch importance aa New York and Boaton Charter* are leoured for the entire distance, exoept onetwelfth, the Khode Island portion. Even should their petition fail, a trilling deflection of four or five milea la all that will be required In oTder to avoid the State. The first charter from the Connecticut Legislature required a aubacrlptlon of $2,000,000 before an organization could bo elTeoted and. the work be commenced; a more recent one haa been obtained, the terma of whloh show the estimate inwhlchthe people of the,State regard the road; a subscription of only $600,000 Is now necessary, and of thl* three-fourth* have been subscribed in Mlddletown and vicinity.

Highly Important from Washington. Waihi^otoh, Oct 4. 1847 The Future Courte of the Government in regard to Mexico?Jlumert?The Prupotitioni Entertained by Sir. Tritt?Santa ?fnna. In view of the momentous poature of affair* In Mexico, an extraordinary meeting of the Cabinet waa hald to-day. It waa resolved to immediately recall Mr Trlat> and to abandon all farther attempt* at oonelllatloa. The oondition of the President'* health precluded the possibility of arriving at any definite conclualon a* to the future oaurae to be pursued. But one thing la oertaia, that all that remain* of the aid government la to be proetrated, and one of our own erected in Ita ataad. The opinion af tha Cabinet i* unanlmou*. that to withdraw our army within the limit* dealgnated aa tboae which our government wenld hare been hitherto willing to aooept aa the future bounJWry of the United States, would be but to prolong the war Indefinitely, and to expose, nnneoeaaarlly, tha lire* of our Roldlara. Oa the crumbling ruin* of the military deapotlam whloh ha* ?y. swayed the destinies of the Mexican people for tha laat . twenty-three year*, mu*t be erected a temporary government. half military, half territorial, which ahall secure to ua the revenue* of tha country,"and protect tha citizen* In the enjoyment of tranquillity, and In tha aafa prosecution of their commercial and Industrial puraulta. The public mine* will be salted, a tariff of dutlea levied In every port, and the roada will be opened to admit the free circulation of tha stream of eommerco through every avenue, to tha heart of the country. The character of the war will be entirely changed Hitherto It ba* been to conquer peace. Henceforth It will be to maintain the government we are about to ereot. Hitherto it hu been offensive Henceforth it will be almost wholly defensive, at the same time that the Urgent discretion will be given the commanding general, to aot on the of* fenaive or defensive, according an the exeentlon of hia measure* for the paclflcation of the country may require. The Secretary of War ha* retired a letter from a most reliable souroe at Vera Crus, the writer having uninterrupted communication with the city of Mcrloo, which, although of a later date than the acoonnt which represent* General* Worth, Smith and Pillow aa killed by the explosion of a ehell In a powder magnates, make* no mention of auch a rumor. Had inch a diaaater occurred,the writer would have been certain to hear It, and would have a* certainly communicated It ! hi* letter. The explosion may have taken place and killed a number of our men. but It i* Improbable that the three Oen ' ?ral* named would have been all on one spot and all kin' ail by the *ame accident. The mail of this evening brings no despatches to clear up the doubt Let us do them justice, those M?xlnan*. They fought wetland bravely before the gate* of their capital.
