ii - ' - NF.W YORK HERALD. M?w Turk, TaMdajr, October 19, IMT. WW Is to Im toe wltl* UlntMT The question of moat absorbing interest at present ia, with what view ia the war to be contiaued 1 It cannot be to conqoer a peace, except by a pacification of the whole country; and universal pacification is but a preliminary step to universal annexation. Is the war to be continued without any other object than to repel force! or is it to be continued for the purpose ot adding the whole territory of Mexico to the United States I It cannot be but for the latter purpose ; at all events, it cannot be without that result. It is not reasonable to hope that peace will be gained by a limited prosecution of the war, or on a prosecution of it based upon the motive of con- | quering a peace. All that delusiori is past, and 1 now we have two courses?either to withdruw our troops altogether, or to continue the war with an avowed determination to occupy the whole of Mexico. There is no middle course. The administration has yet adopted no resolve, nor would it be proper to do so in the absence of all official information with regard to the failure of negotintions. But it is useless to conceal that the question is mooted in the cabinet,and that with the deliberative board of that body the question has ceased, from familiarization, to be the bugbear that it was. Nay, it would not be extravagant to say that a majority of the body are prepared to s nctiun the entire subjugation of Mexico, shou'd the official representations of our commissioner and the general-inchief of our army hold* out a little prospect of an early and pacific adjustment of our difficulties, as do the Mexican accounts we have received.? The occupation of the entire country, with a view to its permanent retention, is regarded as a political necessity from which it is now impossible for us to escape if we would. There is a middle course, but it leads directly to one of the two extremes?that is, to the total subjugation and occupation of the country. That middle course is, to maintain in Mexico an army that will overawe resistance, appropriate all the revenues, establish a purely military government, and hold the country until Mexico shall volunteer to comply with the demands of this country. But the issue of this will be, whether this government wish it or not, that before Mexico will assent to our terms, the country will be overrun by citizens of the United States, who will never consent either to leave their possessions there, or yet to live under Mexican laws; so that it will be impossible that Mexico can ever again attain the position of an independent sovereign nation. Now it is morally certain that the President will recommend this middle course in his next annual message to Congress. He will do so with an entire consciousness of the result to which it will lefld, and doubtless not without a desire to produce that result?not that he would not gladly put an end to the war now, even on the terms lately offered by Mr. Trist; but that he probably sees no prospect of brinirincr it to a termination, extent Kv the entire subjugaticfh and annexation cf the country. The organ of the President still waxeth I grosser in its grossness. It berates the Mexi* j cans by the column, for our victories over ! them; calls them all sorts of vile names, and labors seduously to tarnish the glory ! of our arms by stigmatizing our foes, whom I our generals have seen fit to treat with i ehivalric and punctilious courtesy, as a "de- j based race." It is to be hoped that the j whigs, for the honor of the country, will i not attribute to the administration?to any arl- I ministration that could attain power in this re-! public?a participation in this most indecent ab- ' jurgationofa vanquished enemy?uUuchatinie, I too, as the present, when half the land is in ! mourning, either real or anticipated, for the | lives lost in this sad struggle. The or^an can- j not be patriotic without'being vulgar; but its ' vulgar sentiments should not be regarded as the 1 1 sentiments of the administration. This Cask or I'aci. Brum amain ?Hy the pa- I pers in this case, it appears that on motion to the j una^i.1 ??.?m !? ? u..^? o u .1.1 i t I oj'ctiai itim ui uic oujuruic vuuri, iiciu ueiure Judge Edmonds, and after a full hearing, and I Holemn consideration of the case,, it was decided that Judge Drinker, though a state oflicer, is pro ] hac vice, an officer of the United States, deriving I all his authority from the United States, acting j under a law of the United States in execution of a tieaty, and that the Court had no authority to review his Hctions. That whether his power to act is conferred on him individually by name, or by virtueofhis local office, he is an officer of the United States in that case, amenable only to its 1 tribunals; and the motion wan publicly announced by the Court as denied, and so stated at the foot of the opinion of the Court, and it was sup- j posed that the clerk had entered a general order accordingly. But after the decision, Judge Edmonds, on an expartt application of Rruni'B counsel, allowed a clause to be added to the order entered on the decision, in effect, " that the order was to be i without prejudice to any new application for the ! same writ, upon the sime or other papers",at a ge- ; neral term of the Court." And thereupon, on a j part only of the same pipers, an ex parte applica- ! tion was made to the Court at general term for : the safne writ, and it was granted. On the opposite counsel discovering that these ex parte proceedings had been taken, enquiry,we understand, was made of Judge Edmonds on the subject, to which he answered, that the clause added to the order was allowed ex parte, after the decision m.ide, to allow virtually an appeal from his decision; but that he did not intend to allow at general term the motion to be made on part only ol the papers; that he had already refused to hear Bruni's counsel ex parte on that motion, and directed him to give notice to the French government ; and after the appearance of their counse^ a,nd argument against it, he had deliberately decided it; he did not allow him ex parte, and on i>art of the papers only, to reverse the solemn decision of the Court. On these facts, a motion was made to the Court at general term, to set aside the writ, on the ground of irregularity ; and after argument, the latter motion was refused by the Court, no reason being assigned, except that the Court considered it regular. Let us see if this decision is tenable:? In virtue of the rule of the court, No. 49, this is one of that class of motions called non-enu nerated motions; and by rule 56, non-enum?rated motions are to be noticed for the first day of term or sitting of the court, by a notice of at least eight days, and the notice shall not be for a later day, unless sufficient cause be shown and contained in the affidavits served; and by rule 57, these motions are to be heard on the first day and Thursday of the first week, and Friday ol the second week of the term. The motion in this case was made on neither of these days, and without notice, after a solemn decision of the *Ame court at special term, and on part only of the papers, contrary to the understanding of the Judge in allowing the order to be entered without prejudice. Was this regular 1 As respects the clause last mentioned to the order, "without prejudice," was this valid 1 The laws define when, and to, and from what courts appeals shall be made, and in what cases. Is there any authority for a virtual appeal from the special term (one Uranch of this court) to the general term, (mother branch, having only ihe sjrme power as the special term) in the matter thus indirectly re-decided? Where is the . ' .I" power granted lo court by a ilauie like this ! added at the end oi its orders, in etfsct to nullify ita own decision 1 What certainty ia there of a decision, when after it is publicly can, by the fiat of the Judge, granted tx part*, be narrowed, qualified, changed or rendered nugatory, for the purpose of a virtual appeal to other members of the same court sitting as another branch of it ? Where is the authority for this 1 This is enough relative to the case of Bruni. Tiir Elkction In Pennsylvania takes place to-day. There are four candidates in the field for the office of (lovernor.

Hers and 8ivobi.?These I distinguished artists gave, laat eveniag, a grand enter- j ^ tainment which drew the largest and the most brilliant i [ audlenoe we hare ever seen at the Tabernaole. The i hw room was filled by an immense fashionable and appreci- ' 1 j atire company, numbering about three thousand per- (; sons, aud perhaps more. We never witnessed more 1 enthusiasm, and It is not astonishing, when we rcfieot , upon the contemptible attacks with which Sivori was t abused lately. The universal applause of the pereons | W present waa the most agreeable reward and the sweetest 1 revenge of all these silly and malieious criticism. Let I ( us say at once, that Camillo Sivori never played so finely | old In New York. His first piece, " Le Rondo Russe," from ; Jo' De Berlot, he exeeuted wonderfully. It is orowded full 1 j , )f difficulties, which become beauties by the triumph of E :heir execution. Sivori imparted to the oanta- ] II. ?lle passages graoe and sweetness, expression and \ b pathos, which were completed by the deiiolous sing- 1 A ing of his violin. The public acknowledged this adosl- j rable style by repeated bursts of approbation during the 1 piece, and by thunderlike applause at Its end. The se- mil cond novelty played by the grand maestro, ' La Melan- ; Mil e.olie," was, If possible, more suooessful than the ' Rondo 1 Russe." Its effects are newest. Its contrast more strik- ! J. log; It presents an enitmble of rimplice and grandioeo t only within the reach of the greatest performers. The W duo Irom " Nlobe." " D1 tui suavl palpiti," that gem so ! well sung by Rubinl, was performed on the violin and W piano by Messrs Hers and Sivorl in the most brilliant J style. It ooncluded the first part of the concert, which , was very delightful. M.Herzh d also an eminent share | ] In the triumph of last evening; his "Rondo Pastorale," mi on motiner from ''Norma," is one of the shining and ! l>< fragrant flowers of the wreath of his compositions; be i performed it la a masterly manner ; so he did with the W variations on "Lucia di Lammermoor." This elegant J < composer, whose dmgtc and execution are beyond any ' R desciiption, was received with a real frenzy, and several J pair hands honored him with very pretty bouquets ? Madame Fleury Joly sang a grand aria from "Corquato Dasso," to which she gave all the science she possessed ; th in the musical art, whioh she prefesses. Her cadenzm > Jo ?her trilln and coda, were stamped with that good \ French style, the first after the Italian school. M. Da- ; W breuil, our favorite barytone, rendered also, with great talent, the eerenadaand thecanione, from ''Don Oiovan- Jo nl." He was received with the warmest applause For ! Mrs. Eastcot, she has not precisely a method?her voloe : is not very strong ; she only sings sweetly.? M Paige and Herr lieoht were tolerable Rspettl and I the orchestra were remarkably good. At the end of the j concert, after Sivori hud played " La Melanc lie,"the ! people rose up, and shouted such a tremendous "oalling > J out." that the famed maestro, though very fatigued, was | obliged to oome forward, and be then executed the "Car- ! m< nlral of Venioe," as It was been composed by Paganini. ! uu We had oooaslon to say before that we had heard tho I !\B gr nd oomposer, and we assure our readers that Camillo ' f, Sivori does not change a single note of the musio of his ! :JJ master. At the conclusion of this piece we saw handkerchiefs waving, canes breaking upon the benches, etc . and we confess that we never witnessed suoh an unparal- i ttn Mled triumph. Ioded, we rqjoice in It, for Sivori Is in . etury respect worthy of suoh a demonstration. Madame Anna Bishop's (roup?, consisting of the Iroogest Italian and English company as a whole, we have ever had, make their first appearanoe on Monday next at the Park theatre. Mr. Reeve, the excellent English tenor, and Mrs. McFarren, of whom report ipeaks he highly as a contralto, will make their debut either in w' ' Linda," in English, or " Norma." In Italian. De Begnis DC and Valtelllnl. are also of the troupe, and will appear In w< "La Barbtere." Mr. Bocksa, although the musical dl- ! reotor and arranger, bu ?o high an opinion of the talent ! of Sir. Chubb, the preeant leader, that to him will be confided the charge of the opera at night. J [* ! Df Pftortiioa Riilev and iiii Sons take a benefit at the | b< Broadway theatre to-night. They have never failed to W pleaae, and they deaerve all the succets with which they J" meet. The elegance of their position* and beauty of i>? their motion* have been praised go often, both in Kurope Re and America, that nothing new can b? said of their j J?| merit* in tbi* respect. There Is as muoh difference in an gymnastic peiformancos a* in stage readings of the tbi drama.

Santa Anna's effort*, after notlca had ba?n given or tha tarmlnatton of the armlitlca, to prepare for th* defence ef tba capital, are represented a* having been truly prodigious. It is stated tnat he purchased from hi* private purse all the armi he could And. and the editor of the Diario in hli paper of the 10th add*, that he had seen the day before a receipt for a very large sum of money paid by the general-in-chief, himself, for a number of muskets, and 04,009 flints, for the army. "Add thl?." lays the Diario. evidently considering It a triumphant vindication of 8anta Anna's fidelity to his country, "to the treasons of which ha is accused by the notorious D. Ramon Oamboa " Tha Diario of the 10th, speaking of the demonstrations made by our army on that morning, says that at tha alarm the troop* in th* oapital marched out to defend tha point threatened with tba greatest alacrity and displayed an ardor that promised the best results It was impossible, it Is added, to describe the enthusiasm of th* peopl*, all shouting "Liberty and Independence !>> and declaring their intention never to sucoumb to tha ruthless foe. W* find translated In the Diario an Intercepted latter from oar army, describing the battles of Contreras and Churnbasoo. In the letter it is stated that our loss was sbout 1000, while that of tha enemy was not les* than ' !000 killed and wounded. Tha editor cites this letter, as i in evidenoa of the pronene** of tha Amarloans to exaggerate the Mexican loss and underrate their own. In these two battle*, he adds, "our loss doe* not exceed 1000, but that ot the enemy cannot b* less than 2000.71 Wa know that tha latter was at least corraot in it* statement of our loss In an editorial in the Diario of the 4th, F. M. de OlaLjuibel, at Toluoa,the Governor of the State of Maxloo. If not positively accused of treasou is, at least oharged with being favorable to the Americans. Tha only evidenoa we find adduoed to support this aoousation Is that be sold corn to our troops at his hacienda of San Nioolts Peralta, In th* vicinity of the capital. As this, however, took plaoa during the armistloe, which provided that th* American foroes should be allow?d to obtain supplies in and about tha capital. It Is difficult to *eo how it oould be swelled into the charge that Is made Reference Is made, thouifh. to an adilroai IhumI h* him tn tnn nun. pie of the State, as Governor which It 1* Intimated ?m , of ft ohftraoter that forbade it* publication. It la to thla address than, we suppose, he owe* hii disgrace in the btm of the government editor; and the willingness ot Lno governor to exchange hie corn for American dollar* might hare been everlooked by ft Mcxioan if the addros < bad been palatable food His great crime conflated In defending Valencia, and in alleging that if Santa Anna liad gone to the assistance of that general ftt Contreraa the result might have-been different. Speakin? of the battle ftt the Mill del lley, on the 8th alt., the government paper in extravagant in its laudations of the characters of Gen. Antonio de Leon and ;ol Luoas lialderas ot the battalion of Independence, ; >oth of whom were mortally wounded in the engagement. Gen. Leon, It is stated, was several times gover- , aor and militftry commandant of the State of Gaxaoa, . to whioh he bad rend red eminent services. He was , ilso a veteran of the war of independence Col. lialderas ii spoken of In a manner that few Mexicans deserve ( 'He never," it iB said, ' w*s a charge upon the treasury, | ind was always in the front ranks opposing the enemies >f his country, to which be consecrated all that man can f give, bis life. The tears of all good Mexloans will water his grave." it will be remembered that Immediately upon the armlstloe being agreed upon, the Mexioan Secretary of State Issued a proclamation oalling upon Congress to meet, to oonsider irith the President the proposition of Mr. Trist. This proclamation was dftted the 31st August, but ftlthough some tew met every day up to the 4 th alt, In no Instance over thirty could be Induced to attend the sittings, and ft quorum therefore was never assembled. None of the seventy members who declared they would uot dell berate In the capital while it was ( threatened by our ftruiy, and retired to Toluca, appeared ftt ftny of the meetings. A greftt ado is made in the Diario about some voluntary donations transmitted to the treftsury by the inhabitant* of the mining district of Chioo, to assist the government In prosecuting the war, and no leu than a page of the paper is filled with the offloial co rresponilence ou the subject. The whole amount transmitted was $304 I Wo hurts before us a flero? reply from Valencia to the report of General Salas, of the battle ot Contreras. Tbe part of the report that rouged the lro of Valencia, wan Lhe statement that he disappeared from among his troops u soon as the battle commenced on the morning of the 20th of August, and was never seen after. He claims in this reply to have been present during the wt tfe battle, and that he only left when he found it lmposstble to ral- | if his troops, galas, Valencia says, saw all bis efforts, < ind in roturn for his unkind Insinuations, charges him i with an attempt to cover his own disgraee in being taken prisoner by traducing his oommander. Valencia says: ' If this gentleman has allowed himself to fall Into Inlotivity, it was owing to bis feeding his apprehensions at 1 the moment of danger, or to his little skill in horseman- 1 <hip, and want of valor to leap a little ditch by which he 1 sould have reaohed the village of San Geronlao." This 1 Is a bard hit to a Mexican, for to touoh his horsemanship | is like touching the sweep's honor?death were preferable. 1 It will b? remembered that during tbe negotiations the Mexican commissioners in a communication to Mr. ' rrlst, giving as a reason for their refusal to consent to 1 the oession of New Mexloo, said : " Sentiments of honor md delicacy, which the noble character of your excelenoy will know how to appreciate, as well as motives of | ntereet.prevent our Government from consenting to the ; iismemburment of New Mexico," and it was intimated ;hat Mr. Trist had been made acquainted with the peciflc character of these sentiments and motives. We < lad them related In tbe instructions of the Mexioan i >unret?.rv of Ktatfl. on which th? iilt-.lma.titm nf th? mm nlssioners was based, and translate them:? The government could not, even with the approbation >f Congress, agree to give up New Mexico, whose inhabitants have manifested a wish to make a part of the Vlexloan family, with more enthusiasm than any otner portion of tbe republio. These well deserving Mexicans, abandoned to their fate by several administrations ; frejuentiy without any protection, even against the incurliona of the Indians, have been truly patrlotio Mexicans; because, forgetting their domestio grievances, they have rmly remembered on this occasion that they aro and wlnh to be a part of our >amlly. They exposed and sacrificed themselves to the veogeanoe of the invaders ; they have risen against them, and though their conspiracies have been frustrated, they still continue to conspire And can a government sell these Mexicans like a dock of sheep ? Never. 011 their account the nationality of the republic be lost. We will perish together., 8<ipt. 16, 1847.

THE ENTRANCE INTO THR C1TV OF MEXICO. f From the New Orleans Delta, Oot. 1 ] In conversing with en intelligent officer, who expressed in very strong terms his conviction that those who condemn Oen. Scott for not entering the city, after the victory of Churubusoo, did so without a full knowledge nf the difficulties of the undertaking we were fnrelhlv impressed with a statement of his In rslation to t'.e very great Impedimenta and perils in .storming a oity like Mexico The city of Mexico ! built in the centre of a lake, which we believe in nearly dried up, and the only approaches to it are ov?? causeways from one and a half to two mites long. These *e defended by strong batteries, manned by a large . ~ny, and the hends of the streets into which the cause vs run are also barricaded ! and defended by cannon Hh. General Scott ndranced I upon the city, he would hare lost fully a half of his army, 1 and added to the losses he bad already incurred in the battles of Contreraa and Cburuhuaco. would hare bsun severely crippled, if not placed Ann du combat. Besides, we hare already seen the proclamation of Oen. Herrera, calling on the people of the city to avail themselves or all the means of defence they can lay their hands on; to hurl stones from the tops of the houses; to poor boiling water and hand-grenades on the invading foe?in other words, to imitate the devotion of the Buenos Ayreana, when they destroyed the English under Oen whttelock Suoh is the defence of Oen Soott's conduct in agreeing to the armistice after the battle of Churubnsco, made by % brother soldier and admirer of the Oeneral Without entering into the discussion of the expediency of the arulstlce, there is one Inference which we think we may tafrly deduce from the foregoing argument It is the Improbability of the heavy losa whioh Oen. Scott Is reported by the Mexican rumors, which came over on the James L Day, to have Inourred before he had taken the olty. It is very Improbable that Oen Bcott would attempt to storm a city so well defended against suoh a movement, when he has it In his power to accomplish its fall by the safe and little destructive mode of bombardment, against which the olty has no defences We think, therefore, that Oen Scott, if he has captured the city of Mexico, has done It by bombardment, and bas sustained bnt a small loss The situation of the city sxposM It to certain destruction and ruin from our heavy guns, and we feel assured that the oltlxens would nut hold out long against so fatal aud disastrous a shower of missiles as Oen. Scott has no doubt opened upon it. We sincerely trnst th y saw the madness of sunh obstinacy, In tlmsi tn nrafKiit nnv n fhnua uftf iaHwa snanes wKUl. usually mark the bombardment of a largs city.

Thes? regiments are roughly estimated at one thousand men each, and nearly one thousand other troops have already left, and some others will in a few days, the moment transportation can be obtained There Is now a greet Hcarclty ol ships in New Orleans, and all of the alrge steamers belonging to the government are employed in transporting troops from the Rio Grande to Vera Cruz. It is, however, hoped and believed that several of them will soon return, and will immediately take om board any troops that may be ready to move. There has not been at any moment the least hesitation on my part in advancing all the troops which have arrived ; nor have I, in a single instance, postponed the embarkation of a single soldier, company, battalion, or regiment.* None of the regiments now raising hav#, as yet, been embodied on the Mississippi; but agents of the quartermaster's and subsistence departments have been sent up the river some time sinoe to meet all the requirements of the new troops. In support of this statement, my oon>- t munleations to the war department and instructions to the quartermaster's department can be referred to. As the paragraph of the 39th ultimo may, without Intending it, do me serious injury and mislead public opinion, you will oblige me by giving this communication a placo in your paper, and with therequost that all other papers whioh may copy your article will do me the justioe to Insert this. 1 I am, very respectfully, your obedient servant, GEO.
