The Wttkly Herald will be ready to-morrow morning, and will contain the recent highly im portant aews Iroru England ; the latest newi from the seat of war; the Mexican document! connected with Mr. Trist's unsuccessful mis sion of peace ; and a general summary of ever] other description of interesting news; besidei an engraving of the capture of the town of Pa naco, in Mexico, and one of a scene in the Fail of the American Institute at Caatle Garden. Tteo BpUoofMl General Convention. r -i urn. Oar with fllextoawTh* Dcitlny of Um Two Republics. The doom of Mexico is at length sealed, and by her own hand. Sha cannot make war. Sne will not make peace. She must be subdued. This ia*a summary of her fate and of its provocation. But what shall we do with the country when we shall have aubdued it 1 This ia a momentous question which presses upon the minds of our people, with startling force at thia moment. Previous to the failure ol the late negotiations, there was still a hope that Mexico m ght be induced by the moderation of the terms proposed by our government, to cease her insane atrife, and listen to the dictates of reason That expectation has been disappointed. In the dim vista of futurity there is not a gleam of hope that her insatiable hostility can be quenched, except by gaining such advantages over this nation as it is totally chimerical for her to expect. The question then is, shall we suffer injury, or shall the nationality of Mexico be annihilated 1 It ia a grave and serious question, and already it haa occupied the attention of tne Cabinet at Washington, to the exclusion of every thing else of minor importance. The deliberations of that body will have a tremendous influence on ai a.A ^r i .L -%T *i uie luiurc laic ui uuui cuuuirieB. now 11 is inai the decisive step is to be taken. Congress cannot be consulted, and the Executive must take immediate action. TLere is but one course to pursue. If we turn back, or even look back,we fall. To be saved we must take a bold leap. In view of the impossibility of bringing Mexico to terms, we must now anticipate the necessity that must at some future period arise ot occupying the whole country in perpetuity. fcTo have advocated such a atep hitherto, would have been foolish and impolitic. Negotiations were in progress which might have a successful issue. to ten Mexico, during the pendency ol these negotiations, that we must have every loot of her soil, would have been to render abortive every effort to negotiate a peace. Under such circumstances it would have been extremely dangerous and wicked to declare thtt the whole of Mexico must be ours. Circumstances have since changed. If now existed, as did then, any hope or prospect of peace, it would be equally wicked to talk of absorbing the whole country, a procedure which cannot be justified except on the plea of stringent necessity. But if this necessity do exist, then can there be no doubt, no hesitancy as to our course. It is clear that to eave their capital the Mexicans would hav? sacrificed much. If the war should be prosecuted till doomsday, no crisis can arise that would press more weightily upon them the expediency of making peace. If they did not yield to this weighty inducement, to what can they be expected to yield! Again, they not only refused to accede to our terms, but refused to treat except on terms inadmissible by us. Our terms will never again be so moderate, and there is no reason to believe that their tenacity to their own will ever be less. Every day that passes renders the improbability of peace more strong, and soon that improbability will be converted into impossibility. But the two coun. tries cannot maintain an endless strife. One must yield. The United States^ of course, cannot yield, and Mexico will not. It will happen then, its it has always happened in like cases, that the stronger will subjugate the weaker. Thetewili be no alternative. There is no middle course between a disgraceful surrender of claims, in support of which the best blood of the country has flowed, and a universal and permanent occupation of Mexico. This will be truly no holiday pastime. It will be a work of toil and trouble, and will take many years in the accomplishment. A force must be poured into the country, sufficiently powerful to resistance. Every state government must be overthrown, and new governments, half military, half territorial, must be erected. A uniform tariff must be enforced in every port. The public mines must be seized and worked, and rendered profitable. The guerilla* must be swept from the roads; and under the protection of our eagles, commerce and industry must be encouraged where they already | exist, and given birth to where they do not. I The people must be rendered fully secure in the pursuit of their daily avocations; and the coy maiden, Peace, must be wooed by degrees to clasp our mailed hand, and unite with us in promoting the true interests of Mexico. Every avenue to the interior should be opened. The communication between San Luis Potosi and Taropico should be cleared of all obstructions. From Vera Cmz to Acapulco is but a six daya' lourney, and over this road the lighter articles of commerce could reach the Pacific in eighteen _ vim.j? iiuui ' "in ab annui 1 revenue of I from tan to twelve millions at least could be I raised in Mexico. Thin is the lowest estimate, I and there is reason to believe that it would be I much greater. Under the old lumbering prohiI bitory system in force tinder Mexican rule, the I revenues amounted to twelve millions. AjttdiI cious system would make them much larger reI venue. I Mexico exports fourteen millions of bullion I annually, principally to England. This, instead I nt going to England, would, in case Mexico I were in our possession, necessarily come to the I United Stales, and thus the third great staple I export would be added to the. other two princiI pal ones?cotton and corn?with which we afeady supply the WOIId This would give lha I United States complete commercial supremacy I among the nations of the earth We already I feed and clothe the world . we would then supI ply'it with the precious metal- This would I give us immense advantages as an importing I country, bullion being everywhere admitted I free of doty. I It is a gorgeous prospect, this annexation oi all I Mexico. It were more desirable thai she should I come tw us voluntarily ; but at we shall have no I jieai!'- until -lie |?e annexed, let it come, even though force be necessary, at first, to bring b< Like the Sabine virgin*, aha will aoon lea to lore her ravish^r. : Thk Casi of Paul Bau.Ni-?One ol tl evening papers of Friday last, in noticii ' the recent decision ?f the Supreme Cou in this caee, mentions, as one of the erro ' in the proceedings, that the affidavit < ? which Justice Drinker issued hia warran - aid not state that the prisoner had deserted i t any part of the United States. This is not co > rect; for Justice Drinker issued hia warrant < a requisition of the French Vice Consul, and n r on any affidavit. The opinion of the court, i fact, is that because the statute of the Uniti States does not, in express terms, confer auth rity on State magistrates, such authority in the does not exist; and because it is no where in tl papers alleged that Bruni deserted in the Unit* States, the proceedings are invalid; and tl opinion is based upon the idea, that all the pr ceedin?s were those of Justice Drinker, ai only under the statute. This opinion not only reverses the acts Justice Drinker, and the decision of Judge E wards, (of the Supreme Court,) but also virtual reverses the decisions of Judge Oakley, of tl Superior Court, and of Judge Edmonds, oft) Supreme Court. Let us see how far this last decision is^tenabl The proceedings in the case, in the first i; stance, were exclusively those of the Frenc Vice Consul, who acted under the existing trea between France and the United States, whit authorises him to cause to be arrested in tl United States, deserters from French ships, t matter where they deserted ; to invoke the a of all officers, courts, and magistrates, comp tent; and to dstain them three months from tl data ot arrest, bstore sending the deserte home. This treaty is the only guide, the on lawrecognised by him, or by the French natio , Any statute, in part or in whole, abrogating < impairing this treaty, without the consent of tl r French nation, is a violation of the treaty. The Vice Consul in this case made his requis tion in strict conformity to the treaty, and then fore rightfully omitted the allegation which th Supreme Court has deemed essential under th statute. The requisition is not under the slatut* and the statute cannot control the Vice Const in his act of making it; nor can he be responsibl lor the erroneous declarations of ths magistral to whom he applies, in the warrants that he ma issue in virtue of it. The subsequent proceec ings (whatever may be the statements of the mt gistrates to the contrary,) except only so far s they are in aid of the treaty, and of the requis: lions of the Vice Consul under it, are not undc the statute, but under the treaty, and are to ti controlled by its provisions, and not by the st< tute, otherwise than to add means of eniorcin it. In fact, this ia the nrnfrna*ri nf th statute, and therefore the clause which declarc that the requisition must contain an allegatio that the desertion occurred in the United Statei and that the deserter cannot be detained moi than two months from the date of the arrest, ar in derogation of the treaty, and virtually an at rogation of parts of the same; they are therefor inconsistent with the intent of the statute, am utterly inapplicable. The declaration ot .Judg Drinker, that he was proceeding under the sta tute, when, in fact, as the requisition demon strates, he was acting in aid of the Vice Consul under the treaty, can only be regarded as sui plusage, and cannot vitiate a valid proceeding. In respect to the competency of the magistral Why authority, in express terms in a statute, i required to confer jurisdiction on State magi trates in cases of this kind, except by compar son of the verbiage of this statute and the law < naturalization, does not appear by the opinic ot the court; and it will be difficult, if n< impracticable, by legal authority, to austai this position, in opposition to the authoritw to*he contrary. But on reference to the sti tute itself, it appears that in express terms declares, that it shall be the duty of any coui judge, justice, or other magistrate, having a thority to issue warrants, to cause the person be arrested, &c. How then can il be correct said, that the statute does not give the authori in express terms 1 If Justice Drinker is a m gistrate (State or United States,) with authori to issue warrants, is he not included in the wo any! Is he not so meant to be 1 Included in this case, are questions of such ii portance as to render it one of high and solen consideration. Whether the treaty between th country and the French nation, in good fai performed by the latter, shall be obstructed < avoided in its performance on our part; and tt consuls of the French nation, after after beir involved in complicated, laborious and expei sive litigation, fail in their efforts to obtain i performance, by reason of the alleged errors, < by reason of the diversity of opinion of our ow magistrates or judges, although they, the coi suls, have in behalf of their nation done all thi is required of them ; jvuether a statute can b passed in part or whole, directly or indirect] i aorogaung, or vioiaung, or impairing, a treat solemnly made with a foreign nation, withoi the consent of both parties; whether a treat conferring powers on the consuls to arrest an to call to their aid any magistrate, restricts hi to invoke only United States magistrate these are amongst the questions that will 1 solved by the ultimate result; questions deep interesting to every American citizen, anxioi that the treaties of his country shall be correct! and carefully performed.

The stock market U decidedly in a bad way. The bears are having their harvest, and it is likely to be as great ?s that realised by the bulls a few weeks sinee. Many of the fanoies are lower than they have been at any time within the past three years, and the tendenoy is still downward. Tbe deoline is more the result of a panic among holder*, than from any actual depression in tbe value of the leourltles or from any tightness in the money market. Money Is abundant; tbe rate of interest ranges from six to seven per oent., and the bank* are glad to dlsoount all the good, short, business paper offering. Treasury notes are still above par, and the flnanoes of tbe government have not yet reaobed a very desperate point. Darker days than this have been experienced in Wall street, and as tbe darkest hour is that just before day, we may bo sooner out of the woods than appearances indicate.

This is the first movement by the bishop's friends, and it is generally supposed that they will follow it up, and have that functionary restored to his office if possible. We look forsome excitin scenes when the committee make their report, which will be today or tomorrow. Our readers may depend upon seeing the proceedings accurately reported from day to day in this journal. id iti genaina propetiea leit to the world if >ome one h id it aeiied the gl'b pen and dauiona rated it* t'cthfalneu in ek?"i< g eaotiatioal puff ; hat inch it 'he whim mid the w?h ad e??'d up-"Ui- n- -holid? .j ixue pahlic who keep mi t |i||limNMllw?HMM to Mir.
