Hood. It has not healtated on its side to reciprocate in the moat anenuirocal manner thejneble JesireHof the governments of Her Britannic Majesty and Ills Majesty the King of the Krenoh, as set forth in ihose bases, and to have employed its most decided efforts to obtain the pacification of these republics Id a manner which should be reciprocally honorable and dignified. You will be enable to form an oplnlan of the s.'irlt of conciliation and loyalty which it has never ceased to accredit to the new envoys extraordinary, in order to facilitate the favorable conclusion of their Important mission, both by examining the annexed document*, as well as by * narration of the line of conduot which this government has constantly observed durinir the negotiation. H B. M. minister plenipotentiary, Mir U. O. Ouseley, has been recalled from his mission to this republio, and this government duly received the proper notice from 11. B M ol this fiirt Baron Deflauais, minister plenipotentiary of H M the King of the Krenoh, has returned to France, accompanied by the vioe admiral, Lalnr The same government* informed that of this republic, that having tifcen into consideration the difficulty which hed impeded the conclusion of an arrangement for the pacification of L>a Plata, all of whloh was set before them by their confidential agent, Mr. Hood ; and being resolved to accede to the desire expressed in this affair by the government of the Argentine confederation, they bad oonfided to Lord Howden and count Walewski, the mission of negotiating some definite arrangement for the entire cessation of hostilities among the belligerents. On the 8th of May there arrived In this port the French steamer-of-war Cassinl, having Count Walewskl on board. On the Oth he disembarked. On the 10th of May there arrived here the English war-steamer Rattler, with Lord Howden on board. He landed the same day. On the 11th, the envoys jointly opened their mission by addressing certain notes to the government, which were answered In due form. On the 13th, the first conference took place. At it the plenipotentiaries showed that the projects of convention whloh they were about to submit to the government, did not differ from the bases presented by Mr Hood; the necemlty of giving these bases a more solemn form than that which they bad, so that they may be signed by ail those interested, and thus produce respective obligations ; that this form should be that of a convention. To this the minister of foreign affairs of this republic replied there would be no objection, provided of course that in reducing them to a convention, the bases laid down by Mr. Hood should not be altered. To this the plenipotentiaries replied there need be no fear of any alteration; that the form only would be varied, as this government would perceive on receiving them. On the 14th the propositions of the envoys thus referred to were sent In by them, but this government found they were not all in accordance with the bases laid down by Mr. Hood, and admitted by all parties, nor with the declaration of the Krenoh and English governments. and their respective plenipotentiaries ; consequently a note was addressed to the ministers on the Jttth May, enclosing them further projects for a convention conformable to the bases presented to this government by Mr Hood, and agreed to by them. The plenipotentiaries did not agree with this proposition of this government, and on the 3d J une addressed notes to it. re |nesting verbal conferences, by which the affairs might b* brought to soma more definite conclusion. After answering these notes on the 13th, this gor eminent mgnmau iu assent to this mode of treaty. [From this time the conference* were In propria pertuna betweeii the Minister of Foreign Au*lrs on the part of the Argentine Confederation, and the Minister! Plenipotentiary on the part of the British and Freach Governments; we proceed to give the substance of their conferences a* related in this message, though from not having the various documents referred to In it. in our possession, we can only give a sketch.?Her.] The first difficulty encountered by the envoys was the manner in which Oen. Oribe should be designated in the treaty. They were aware that the Argentine Oovernment oould not omit giving him the title of His Excellency the Pr sident of the Oriental Htate, as be was then recognised in the coulederstion, but that on their side It was Impossible for them'.thus to recognize him, as such wouU be contrary to the policy of tneir government ; that they would wish to adopt a conciliatory course and they miKnt do one of two things: 1st, whenever It was necessary to name Oen Oribe in the treaty, he might be Mmply styled on the part of the Argentine Government as "our ally, at whose orders or disposition are the Argentine troops," and 'idly, that in the copy of the treaty which should be signed, he should receive the titles which the Argentine Hepubllo usually gives him in the copy in the Spanish language, and the title ofOenetal in the French and Knftllsh copies, the declaration to this purpose made by the plenipotentiaries being annexed te all the ooples they should sign. To oversome all difficulty, it was proposed to send the British and French naval commanders to General Oribe, to ascertain his sentiments on the matter. This, however, was not agreed to. Anally, as the Argentine Republic could, under no circumstances whatever, cease to look on Gen Oribe as the legal President of the Oriental Hepubllo of I'rugusy. The envoys would no acoept of this, or. at all events, wished to bind the Argentine Hepubllo to the following, vlx : that, In oase of a new election taking place In Uruguay, and any other President than Oribe being chosen, that the Argentine Rnpubllo should still keep to its pledge of not interfering in the domestio affairs of the Banda Oriental. After much conference, however, the affair was finally arranged, thus, vix: That whatever convention or agreement might be made by the negotiating poweis, should be signed after some ttrangement had been made oonoernlng Ills Kxcelleney the le^al President ef the Oriental Republlo, Brigadier i/?u ttibuuh uiiup, ?uu ?imir u? huoqiu qati tmciiuy Informed the Argentine Government of hi* conformity to the part which concerned him, which might have b?nn meanwhile agreed on between this Government and thn Plenipotentiaries The qaeation of the navigation of the river* wm then brought forward, and the Argentine Miniater of Koreign Affair*, informed the envoy* that no alteration oould be made from the plan laid down with Mr. Hood, and after various endeavor* on the part of the envoy* to alter the determination of the Argentine Government on thi* head.it w?* found useieaa to prooeed in the matter at all, und on the 3d of July, all further negotiation* were declared to l?e at an end: aud en the ?ame day the British envoy, l,ord lluwdeu. left Buenos Ayre*, and on the following one, the t-'rnnch Lnvoy,Count Walawakl, followed hi* example.

Mierometrio observations made by Mr. Bishop and myself directly after the dlsoovery, showed it to be a new planet, evidently belonging to the group between Mars and Jupiter. 1 announced this dlsoovery to astronomers in this oountry on August 14th, and the planet was observed at Cambridge on the evening of that day.

Tba Growing Indian War* [From the Independence (Mo ) Expositor. 8apt. 18.] Everything Indicates the approach of a long and blttar struggle with the predatory Indian tribal Inhabiting tha imn'wnse country between Of and tha Pacific Two causes conspire to render this Inevitable. First, tha great numerical for6e of tha Indiana and tha rapid diminution of tba buffalo upon wbioh exclusively they *ub iat. Hecond the unwise Incredulity of our government, it* (low and reluctant recognition of tha approaching danger, and tha levity exhibited by the President and Cabinet In their treatment of existing difficulties. Three past Indian wari enable us exactly to foretell tha coming disaater?tha Creek, the Blaok Hawk and Florida wars. Theae wars were all brought about by the levity with which the government met the first hostilities, and en deavored to tinker up discontents with inadequate and Inflaming remedies This levity, besides tha chagrin flowing from it. haa been Immensely oostly. The struggle with the Cherokaea and Creeks, who have never exceeded 3&.060. haa employed armies paaslng 30 000 men In the aggregate, and exhausted $05 000 0i?0. Tha Blaok Hawk war amployad 7.004 troops, and cost $9,000 000 ; the Indian foa never surpasaed 600 warriors. Tha Florida war employed 40,000 troopa. lasted ten years and oost $33,000 00# Florida, from first to laat, naver oontalned over 1700 Indian warriors. Heretofore we have contended with Indians, a single tribe at a time, confined to a speolflc territory and acting on foot; and such has been the cost in money, reputation and gradual slaughter on both sides. We have now to oontend with tribes who are mountad, who roam over plains mora extensive than the whole territory of our confederated States, who Intermingle and have no permanent homes. They subsist on the baffalo. which la their food, their clothing, their lodges, their saddles, robes and fuel. They have neither agriculture nor domeatlo oattle to supply food. War, plunder and tha obase keep them in perpetual movement. They are more wild than Arabs and better warriors. Their country is Infinitely larte. various, and their an pearanoe in u; particular pari of It m uncertain aa the wind or a thunder itm. The azgregitu number of this floating race la unknown to our official authorities, not out* of whom haa ever been among them. We state then frotn positive knowledge the following statistical fact, which will be denied, but which lit true. The aggregate numbers of the Indian tribes who deiicend every season, upon the buffalo reglen. possessing horses, and relying upon the buffalo to supply all their physical wants, is 260,000 ! These room over and inhabit the whole space from the Gulf ts the Canada line; a part of them are the tribes which lira upon the head waters of the great rivers that flow into the Pacific, and who annually pass out through the Rooky Mountains to the buffalo region. Causes, oertaln In their effect, are now pressing upon this whole mass and kindling a war about to oeaae only with extermination. The buffalo are diminishing with frightful speed- with the buffalo ceases to the Indians every means of existence The constant passage to and fro of the white men by the Missoarl, the Oregon. California and Santa Ke trails, and through Texas, solves to the Indian the oauses of his approaching doom. On all these routes hostilities are now become perpetual. The Indians have been suooeesful in tastiag the blood and plunder of the whites. These they exhibit to distant tribes, share with them, and are replenished with new allies ! A permanent Indian army has occupied the middle Arkansas throughout the whole summer Just passed ! Many such little armies will appear next season-massacre impends over evory white man who ventures forth upon the plains. We make these statements indeed with a very faint hope of conciliating to these accumulating horrors of the Indian oountry the serious attention they peremptorily demand Wisdom, the warnings of the past, the existing dangers, the Mood that has flowed and is daily flowing, cry against the levity whioh delays the remedy that shall punian and oheck the evils existing and to come. Eoonomy and duty both demand an effloient and permanent military force. The smallest foroe to be effective is 2000 men, well armed, commanded and equipped. This fore* to act at various points in oonoert, to be increased gradually ana kept in operation for Bve years. Americano-Mexican Revenue .

Skc. 1 The punishment of death by virtue of the laws of this State Is hereby abolished. Skc. 2. In every case where death is now indicted or preecribed by the laws of tbln State, the penalty shall benctforth be Imprisonment for life in one of the Mat* prisons,either at bard labor or in solitary ooadnooMat, M the seutenoe sball direct. Skc. 3. On conviction of any person of any crime now punishable by deatb, he shall be thereupon deemed, with respect to all ooutraois, to the bonds of matrimony, to all rights of property, and to all elvil rights and rotations of what nature soev*r, dead, in all reepeeteaa If Ma actual natural deoease had taken place at Um time of such conviction. See. 4 ?No person sentenced to Imprison meat fer life In any of the state prisons of this State, shall apply toe pardon until be shall have published a aotloe of hie in iviiwuu m uo no ior nz successive vmiu, la uwip*f? published to the county where the orlme for which he wan convicted wan committed; or If thoro U no MN> paper published In m1(1 oouuty, than 1b tha newspaper published nearest to said county; which notlaa ah all Mate tba ground on wbich thli application for pardM to baaed; be ihatl alio furnish to the dlatrlet attorney of the country where ha was convicted, a full and perfect statement In writing of all the laota and clroumstasoM on which hi* application for pardon la predicated, tt least alz weeks before hia application for pardon to pro1 seated to the Governor Mir. 6. This act shall take effect immediately. Much Is the bill which is now being seriously oonaidsr 1 ed in the Legislature; Its passage la being urgod with elotjuenoe aud teal and Inflexible energy; It to bates urged by the most heart-stirring appeals, aad by every I powerful argument wulch can De devised 1 earnestly i oelleve that If a v?te had been taken upon tba bill today, it would have passed the House. Tba moat otyeetiouable feature In it Is, In my judgment, tba fourth section, the third seotioo declares that tna oonvlet shall ha deemed to be dead, in all respects.aa if his actual uataral decease had taken place, and yet tna 4th seotioo, to whieh objection is made, authorises him to apply for pardsa and to do other acts utterly lnoonstotent with tba state of being lu which he la placed by tha third sootlon. 1 understand that tha gentleman who lntrodneod tba Mil will otfer some amendments providing that appllaatlaa for pardon shall not be made by the oonvlet, Put by bto Irlendd or relatives. This will obviate tha objection* to the fourth section. The iu?penaa of a man who to interdicted from all communication with that world te which he has been accustomed to live or with that lata which we will all soon enter, Is more borrlhla than death ; men xhould not be willing to lnfllot a mora dreadful punishment than this upon a fellow srwataro who Is not the oreator of himself or of bto propensities.
