NKW YORK HERALD l?w York, WtdnMfc/, November V, 1MT? THE ELECTION. fizv?i or sbi wnai, NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE. I h? election id thia State is over. The wings ?f? vutormu* id thia ritv un.l in th? Srm? Thpv have tarried the city by over two thousand Minority (Joe of our correspondents in Albany ay*, telegraphically, that the State in whig by twenty thousand majority. This is perhaps an over estimate. But noux rtrroni. Tha vote polled ia light, particularly on the democratic aide. The whigs voted more in force, ia consequence of the split* and troubles of their opponent*. The splendid weather of yeaterday, the balmy atmosphere, eihilerated the whigs; they voted with pleasure and spirit, and hence polled a majority. It ia unnecessary to recapitulate here. Our tables of the returns are quite enough. Our readers will see in these tables what they have never before witnessed in a newspaper. They haver had so lull a statement of the vote polled one day. laid before them early the next morning in a daily journal. Our arrangement* to obtain thia reault were complete. An additional hour, however, to devote to the (igurea, would have enabled ub to make them almoat ax accurate aa the official returns will be. We will endeavor to do thia for the Evening Edition, to be ready at h&lf-past 1 o'clock thia afternoon. The telegraphic report* are full. We are indebted to Mr. Carter, the chief operator, to hi* assistants, and to our apecial agents, for the returns from the interior. The operator* at the telegraph station,remained at their posts all night to enable the press to lay 'the reault of the election before the public early this morning. They have our thanks and the thanks of the community. But to the tables on the outside and inside of (his day's Utrald. They will speak for themselves.

There seem to be opinions entertained in some quarters, that Europe will interfere in our Mexicans affairs, as they now stand before the world. Such an interference may take place; but from the knowledge possessed oi the position* of the different European cabinets, it seems the more probable opinion that they will let America conduct her own affairs in her own way. No doubt there is a disposition entertained by certain diplomat* in Europe to interfere in the quarrel between the United States and Mexico; but the position of their courts, and the temper of the people on the other side of the water, render any decided action in that direction almost a matter of impossibility. Whatever letter writers may say, and whatever may be the intentions of the administration at Washington, we doubt very much whether Mexico can be annexed to thia republic at the termination of the war as the present time, there is a disposition in this country among the liberal and intelligent por??An e\f th* n#nn)? t f\ flllnu/ that 11 n fnrtun of a Vl ",v I 9 ?,v" ?? country another trial of nationality. It required three Punic wars with Carthage before Rome annihilated that remarkable African republic. In the exultation of the moment, feelings and hopes and purposes may follow each other as the clouds do over a summer sky; but with such a people as those of the United States, there is a aolid vein of common sense, which every now and again rises up and gives direction to the excitements of the day. By a temporary military occupation of Mexico, for a year or two, we are disposed to think the Mexican people will agree to ourtermsof peaoe, resume their nationality, and be better people in consequence. The great muss of the Mexican r people?nearly eight out of nine millions?might be said to entertain this feeling in the matter.? All the obstinacy is concentrated in the educated classes, numbering the remaining million. A little time may work wonders among these materials. Yet contingencies may happen which may I lead this country, and the people ol this country, to carry the idea of annexation into effect. If the European governments or any member of them should take any marked ground in refe rence to tnis matter,ana loroiu mr i nitcn Mates i to pursue such or sueh policy, the efirct ol such an attempt on the people of this country, would more incline them to annexation than if they were left to themselves. The rrlations of France with England are hostile in an extraordinary degree, and their union, in a cause of any kind. aeemB improbable. Spain has enough to do to mind her own affairs and manage her <^ueen and Cabinet. No other country will trouble itself with the course thai may be pursued by the United States. If these governments, therefore, are wise, thay will be silent on the subject of Mexico, and allow the people of the L'nited States, uninfluenced, unthrratened, and of its own free will, to settle the Mexican question according to their own views and their own judgment; and if that should be permitted, the approaching Presidential election will give the views ol the people on that most important question, in a manner calculated to satisfy all parties, in this hemisphere, at least, however it may do on the other side. What is to be done with Mexico will be the , great issue involved in the approaching Presi. dential election. It will occupy all tongues, all r. | pens, all minds, of all persons, who have ?n ink i tcrest in the progress of thia great Republic. Diplomatic Relations with Komk.?We in* timated, in Monday's paper, that the adminiatration at Washington contemplate to open diplomatic relations with his Holiness Pius the Ninth ; and that, as soon as the proper measures for forming a mission to that country shall have Ween completed, an American minister will take up his residence near the pontiff. This is a wise and judicious determination on the part ol our government, and we hope that nothing will interfere to prevent its consummation. Rome, at the present time, presents a gratifying spectacle. J The errors and false theories of centuries are giving way before the light of reason and common sense; and in effecting the transition which his holiness is now attempting, in the face of powerful influences, the sovereign Pontiff deserves, and will, doubtless, receive the sympathy and good wishes of all free governments. To the I'nited States, especially, he will look for encouragement and countenance; and it would be but right and proper" that he should receive such marks of sympathy from us as will encourage him to proceed in the glorious course he has marked out for himself. The establishment of diplomatic intercourse with Rome, may also have a beneficial influence on us in f>ur relations with Mexico. If, through the obstinacy of the people of that country to make peace with us, or through the interference of foreign governments, we shall be forced to annex the whole of that country to this republic, the presence of a minister at the court of the Pope, charged with the task of explaining satisfactorily to him the reasons that compelled us to adopt such a course, could not but have a favor-t-1 -~n t? .1? tr_;.?,| j, ttUlC IHUUCIIUC IU( lUC vunru ? ? W?.? serve, at all events, to place the United States in a proper and right light before him. We have heard it intimated that the government intends selecting a distinguished editor ol Philadelphia, as its minister to the l'ope. lieFore any action of a decided nature is had in the matter, we should say to the Cabinet at Washington, that a better man, or one more competent in every respect to fulfil the duties of such in importantJpost,with credit to himself and satisfaction to both governments, than Mr. Drown, jur present Consul at Rome, could not be found. We know something of Mr. Brown's capability, 19 well as the high reputation which he sustains it the imperial city. He has discharged the duties of the office he now holds in an exemplary manner, and ranks high in the opinion of th? Pope and his ministry. In addition to these qualifications, Mr. Brown is a man of great experience as consul, and by elevating him to the post of minister, he would make available the extensive knowledge he has acquired in his consular duties. Sociai. Condition ok New York.?The prosperity which has marked the history of this :ity and country for the last three or four irears, is beginning to produce its natural effects upon the state and condition of society. If we jo^to the upper regions of the city, to that section which may be called the "West End," in VT a * Vnttlr?.if lira rrtarlr tho ulrpptu r/innd Waih. L1CW 1U1H II ? ^ ngton, Union and Tompkins squares?we might joint out splendid private residences and costly ;hurches which adorn this region of New York. A.11 these are the fruits of the corn and cotton speculations?of large profits and of commercial success. But there is danger to be apprehended, which ought to be guarded against in the proper time. In London, there is a certain portion of nobility which has had fixed incomes for years? who have erected splendid establishments, tending to sap the system of social life?who give splendid entertainments by which they guide the cours? of fashion. All the wealthy classes of London, whether merchants or bankers, or manufacturers, who wish to get into such society, must follow in their train. Thus, it is the xtravagance of a few which lays the foundation of extravagant expenditure among many, which eventually leads to ruin and bankruptcy. Precisely such aB is now seen in London, was formerly seen here ; similar causes produced similar effects in 1836 and 1837 in New York. A series of prosperous years made men and women rich in New York, and men and women I launched out into every extravagance of the day. The prosperity of the last five years has again set on foot an extravagance of social life in New York, exceeding by far any thing that has ever bee> seen in this metropolis in earlier times. A few rich millionaires, probably not more than ten or a dozen, whose ancestors left them millions, and who live upon their income, may be able to build and furnish splendid palaces; but the misfortune is, that with such examples before them, the rest of the commercial community, whose incomes depend upon the prosperity of trade, fall into their way of extravagance, and imitate their expensive mode of living. The time is coming on when things threaten a change. There is a cloud upon the horizon of the future. But the princely palaces up town indicate that there is no pause ; they give forth no sign of change in the progress of extravagance. It is to be feared, indeed, that nothing will put a stop to this movement, until they are all brought up on the " round turn," as it is called, at some early period, in such a general and overwhelming bankruptcy as took place in '37 in this city ; such as is now taking place, from similar causes, in London. Let the people look out for squalls. Anotiier|Powdkr Mii.l Explosion.?The powder mill of Messrs. Laflin & .Smith, in <ireene county, about six miles back from the North River, exploded about 10 o'clock on the morning of the 1st inst. Three of the workmen were killed. A gentleman who was at Hudson at the time, about seventeen miles distant, says the explosion was distinctly heard at that place. The names of the BufTerers are ( Werbngh, Neacott and Schribber. Another of the workmen narrowly escaped death, having left the building only a few minutes before the explosion with a load of powder. We regret to learn that two of those killed have left large families. The amount of powder which exploded, was some four thousand pounds. Police Intelligence. j .1nn $trril Murdrr.?

This remarkable work of art, the production of an American artist, has been exhibited for the last two inonths.and probably sixty thousand people, or more, have examined its beauties and hung over its delicious lineaments. In any other city, however, of eijual magnitude with New York, this st tue would have been visited by half a million. In Italy, where genius is appreciated, it is acknowledged that this work of art iB one of the greatest wonders of the present age. It would be useless to go into a minute analysis of the character of this piece of sculpture, or to indulge in a refined criticism of the different paints developed in this statue. For centuries the Venus de Medicis has monopolized the admiration of the world; but it is now generally acknowledged among the artists of Europe, who have seen Powers' wonderful work, that a rival has at length been produced, eciual at least, if not superior, to the remains of antiquity. Indeed, in point of effect, the Greek slave is far more remarkable than that of the Venus. Powers' statue represents a young woman, slightly above the ordinary stature, full of health and life and innocence, with a mysterious air of grief and softness around her, which throws the spectator into the most|pleasing transports of delight and compassion. The Venus, on the other hand, is shorter in stature and different in lineaments, and would seem to indicate that the model of it was a woman, the mother of a family, over thirty years of age. A lady tra veiling in Italy, who happened to make these remarks upon the works of art of Powers, was told [ that it corresponded entirely with the opinion of the greatest artists. For several days past, the number of visiters to the statue at the society's rooms,seems to have increased. It would be an advantage to every individual who has hot seen this wonderful work oi art, to avail himself of the present opportunity. As a matter of taste and of mind, he would learn more in half an hour,by the perusal ofthe exquisite lineaments of this statue, of the higher points of art, than he could do by years of study. It is curious to mark the demeanor of the beholders, at this place. One sees the visiters sitting down quietly around the statue, silently beholding it, and aa still almost as at a prayer meeting. Now in Italy, visiters place themselves in ?very possible position, and examine the statue and all its relative proportions, going round and round it.? Hut in New York we are only in the infancy of that enjoyment which results from the highest efforts of art. We shall improve as we get along. Theatrical and Musical. Pah* Thicatbi:.?Notwithstanding (he excitement consequent apon the election wbioli took place in the city yesterday, there wm a good house at the] Park last evening, and "Lucrezia" was performed in the inimitable style which has before been .noticed.? The truth is, we have not before had this excellent

opera produced her* with the same effect as it is brought out by the Bishop troupe. After the opera, the farce of "Nicholas Flam" was performed in the best manner, by Bass, Andrews, Anderson, Mrs. Vernon, and other members of the oompany. To-night "La Sonrambula,"{will be given with the excellent oast who have before performed it so successfully within the past fortnight After the opera, Hignor Da Begins, the favorite buffo, will (appear with Mme. Bishop, In the celebrated scena and duetto from "11 Fanatlco per la Muslca." The whole to conclude with the faroe of "Shocking Events." This is a good bill, and well deserves a good house. Bowkrt Th?.ats?.?The grand drama of "Captain Kyd, or the Witch of Hell Gate," the drauia of the "Jacobite,'' and "Crimson Crimes, or Deeds of Dreadful Note,'' are the three pieces advertised for this evening's amusements at the Bowery theatre; and in producing tbem, the manager consults the taste of his patrons, and may rest confident of attracting to his house as many as It can hold. Mr. C. W. Clarke, Mr. Marshall, Mrs. Jordan, Mrs. Mouther land, and other excellent actors and actresses, will take the ohlef characters in these pieces. This is a strong bill, and will be honored by a large house. For a long time past, the Bowery has scarcely been large enou. h for those who have attended Frequently it is almost Impossible to procure a seat. Chatham Th hat nit .?The Chatham Is reoeiving a run of natronace which the manager riohly deserves for hit effort* to plaase the publie. That favorite little place of amusement it brooming more popular than ever, and bid* fair to maintain it* own and more, in the general race now going on among the theatre* of thl* city. Harney William* convulse* hi* auditor* with his delineation* of lrl*h character; Ml** Vallee plea*** them with her graceful dancing; and Mr D?

The - Tyrolienne and " Ki Jaleo da Xerxes," will be danoed, by Miss Vallee and Miss Deloraine. Circus?Bowmr A*rhit hiatsf.?To-night, again, Oossin and Donaldson enliven the feelings of their friends with their jokes, and what with the horsemanship, gymnastics, grand entrees, inc. and their fun, we have no doubt all hands will be pleased. They wind up the evening's entertainments with that glorious burlesque of-'Don Qulxotte." Knougb, in all conscience, for one night. Christy's Minjtkkm.? These philosophers have a way of laughing through an evening that is catching, for none of their hearers can avoid joining in the laugh, and though their faces are black, and their words a little dislocated in their pronunciation, yet their jokes and witticism* are all of th? purest order?in fact, this con Rtltutes the great charm of their entertainment, the perfeot refinement of language and sentiment that they utter Those of our reade rs who have not heard them as yet, ought not delay any longer but to go at once.

Were such an occurrence to take place only for one evening at Palmo's, we are afraid the next day's sun would thaw out suoh tremendous rounds of applause as would frighten the lawyers in the Ctty Hall; but fortu nately the enthusiasm of the audiences nightly finds its natural vent, and that, and the fact of their being so soon about to leave their kind friends, inspirits the Kthiopians to almost surpass themselves in their efforts But a few nights more and they will leave us on alengthened Southern tour; there'ore let none omit seeing them before they depart.

Sivohi.?These unrivalled artists gave their grand performance last evening,- before an immense andience of about three thousand persons That their eHerts to please the public are fully appreciated, needs no further evidence than that of witnessing the delight expressed by those who attend every musical performance given by Her/, and Hivori. The "son of I'aganini" surpassed himself, if possible, in the different pieces which he executed " La Meiancolie," one of his own compositions is marked with a peculiar seal, which proves that the soul of tiiH little man is truly great. Tlis andante which begin it contains indeed one of the sweetest melodies ever written and played. These are the true accents of melancholy, the laments of a sorrowful heart. The variations which come after are of the most difficult style, and were performed by Sivori with unqualified skill and ability "The Carnival of Veuice," was, as usual, received with laughter and admiration. Henry Her/., "the emperor pianist," was also triumphant last night.

Another Murder ?Between 1 and2o'clock vesterdav morning, some five hours before daylight, offloers Wood and Uarvey of the tith ward polloe, discovered a man by the name of Andrew Meehan, lying on the sidewalk in Lnonard street, near Kim street, with his head in a gore of blood and signs of life still remaining; they picked him up,and while on their way to the station house, the man expired. On the body being examined at the station house, it was ascertained that a wound had been iotlloted in the centre of the neck, just above the collar bone, apparently done with a sharp instrument or a dirk knife, penetrating near three inches. The blow was evidently struck iu Leonard street, opposite Benson street after which the unfortunate man walked or staggered some paces down the street, towards Kim street, and then fell insensible on his back from loss of blood, leaving a stream of blood all that distance. Search wpi Immediately made by the police, in order to arrest the murderer, aa the man suspected was seen to leave a dance house in Anthony street, in company with the deceased. AmutW o'clock the same morning, officer Dowdioan of the 6th ward, succeeded in arresting a Canadian Frenchman named Oliver Bratto,who,with the murdered man, were workmen in the Phenix foundry, corner of Laight and West streets. Upon examining the ooat ef Bratto, large spots ot blood were disoovered on the sleeve of the left arm, and likewise on the skirt. The prisoner acknowledges that he was in company with the deoeased at that time, and says that Meehan waa in liquor, and they both were passing up Leonard street together, when three men were coming down; some words ensued, and Meehan squared off to fight, in doing which he supposed that one of these men gave the fatal blow Meehan then pat his hand upon his (Bratto's) arm, turned round and walked towards Kim struet. The accused left him, supposing that he was going home, as the deoeased resided at No. 130 Anthony street, and went in that direction. That is the explanation given by the prisoner, accounting for the spots of blood on his coat. Coroner Walters held an Inquest on the deoeased, and Dr. Holmes made a post mortem examination on the body. He found a wound on the right side of the neck. passing a little obliquely downwards to the left. entering the pleura of the left cavity of the chest, partly dividing the aorta, windpipe, and wsophangus or gullet; and in the left cavity of the chest was lound about a pint of coagulated blood, which wound evidently caused death. The evldenoe of some eight or nine witnesses was taken, amongst whom was Mr. David Birdsall, the foreman at the foundry where the prisoner and deceased both worked, showing that the accused was a steady, peaceable man, and of good character. Several other witnesses were likewise sworn who testified to his general good character, and the explanation and statements made by the prisoner upon his arrest, respecting the three men who were seen to cross Broaaway and So down Leonard street, was corroborated by the evlence given by officers Wood and Uarvey; this, together with other testimony, showing that no enmity or quarrel existed between the prisoner and the deceased, but, on the contrary, they wore on good terms with each other; all went to ahow the innocence of the prisoner. Consequently, after the jury sitting seven hours,and thoroughly investigating the facts of the case, they retired for about fifteen minutes and returned the following verdiot: That the deceased came to his death by a wound, or wounds, inflicted on the throat by some person or persons to the jury unknown, in Leonard street, on the mornirg ol the 2d of Nov. 1817. The prisoner was then discharged from oustody and received the affeotionate embraces of his wife and two ohildren. The deceased was a single man, and 2'i years of age. Profkmor Acasmz'h Lecture at Crosry Street College.?This leoture, last evening, tbe fourth of the course, bow delivering by this eminent tavan, was attended by a very full and fashionable audience, a numerous portion of whioh consisted of ladies. The lecture room was densely orowded, every available situation in it being occupied by listeners. The Professor opened his lecture by making some remarks on the solution to the geology of time, as afforded by the gradation of species, and that if science had advanoed tar enough te enable investigators to determine tbe length of time that elapsed between the various gradations, that our means of knowing tbe length of time during which the whole changes had taken place would be perfect; such, however, was not the case, save in a few animals. who had been best studied; for instance, in tbe brachiopodae, where it was exemplified in several, where there was a general agreement between the order o! succession, and completeness of structure. The Professor afterwards went on to make bokm remarks the true meaning of succession in geology, to dear up the misapprehensions whioh might arise ia the minds of many who used the same words, but who attached different ideas to them By progress, he said, was meant something superior to what had gone before?as, for instanoe, is seen in the ohanges that take ?lace in an egg, from the first laying of it until tho atching of the chicken. This epoch or the egg's existence has been denominated as its development, and the ohanges resulting in the production of the animal as its metamorphosis. Now this wor* metamorphosis had been applied also to the striking change whioh takes place in the transition of the oaterpillar to the winged butterfly; but the changes were not always so dlstinot and striking in every animal; but they, many of them, pass into equally striking changes, more gradually, one from another. 8till, If we trace all the intervening stages, one into another, we shall find that there is no interruption in their succession Now this was development?not metamorphosis?it was also what might be termed progress. Now. as regards the metamorphosis of the animal kingdom, through the sires of geological time, it would h? found they were equally uninterrupted The strata of the lower crust differed entirely from those of the in: termediate ones, and again from those of the uppermost ones. In these successions of strata and animals we have considerable progression. The types found in the lowei beds resemble the types of the lower animals now existent, such as the acephalic Now here the progress 01 the metamorphosis of the animal kingdom differs iroin the metamorphosis of the caterpillar into the butterfly; in the latter case it is one animal irom beginning to end but in the former it is a.succession of types, not materially the same, but of a number of distinct individual! unconnected with each other?a succession of types Now, (said the Professor.) I have been repeatedly asked the question of late, is the succession of types at all to be referred to external influences? Most assuredly not, As far aa we oan reach, we flnd all the various speciei the same as at the present day They were all formed in the original plan of creation. He intended, in some future lecture, to speak of the position occupied by man in oreatlon, and he should have referred to this mattei now, had it not been for many remarks made to him or the subject of a book whioh had made some noise in these times, and had attracted some attention. il? would say, however, that the dootrlnes set forth in thii work were antiquated, and wrong in the extreme; ii fact, he looked on the work as one not worthy a mo ment's attention from a truly scientific mind (It wat understood that the Professor alluded to the Vestiges o Creation.) The Professor then went on to speak of va rious orders of molluscic. and concluded bis lecture witt quite a minute detail of the cephalopoda'.

Oot. 20, 1847. My Dear Sir I had the honor a few days since, to IH receive your friendly letter, apprising me of your desire |H to place my name, after the olose of the then approach- IH ing canvass in Pennsylvania, at the head of your paper, IH as the choice of the sterling democracy of your district IH for the Presidency, and slso informing me of a similar IH disposition among the democrats of the surrounding IH districts. IH The frankness of your communication and the disin- IH terested motives by which it has obviously been dictat- IH ed, command my respect and confidence. Instead, therefore, of replying to it through mv old and fast friend in your vicinity, as you suggest, 1 address myself directly to you, and shaM express my feelings and opinions ^H with the freedom and sincerity which are due to the sub- ^H jeot?to my position in regard to it?and to the respect ^H and gratitude with which your oonduot has inspired me. I oannot apprehend that what I am about to say will IH induce any one to suppose that I undervalue the honor IH of the office with whioh your favorable estimate of my IH capaoity and principles has inclined you onoe more to IH connect my name. Every right-minded American oiti- II ten must regard an incumbent of the Presidential office, II possessing the confidence and esteem of those who raised II him to power, and challenging the respect of all parties by an honest, wise and manly administration of his trust, as enjoying the highest distinction known to the politl- ^H cal institutions of mankind. Nevertheless, I assure you that, whatever may have been my aspirations at other periods of my life, I have no desire to re-occupy that most elevated public station. IH I have already, by the partiality of my oountrymen, partaken very largely of the enjoyments of publio life, whilst I have not shunned its labors, or been exempt from its inquietudes. The favors and honors which havs been profusely bestowed on me, by the democracy of the Union, are, and 1 trust will ever be, present to ray mind, and gratefully impressed on my heart. Kvery day more <H and more confirmed in the soundness of the political H opinions to which I have adhered, conscious of having IH always done my duty to the people to the best of my H ability, having no heartburnings to be allayed, and no II resentments to be gratified by a restoration to power, <11 and finding my present position entirely adapted to my H taste and disposition, I am sincerely and heartily deslr- l| ous to wear the honors and eDjoyments of private life un- i| interruptedly to the end. J] If, therefore, the support which you, with whom I have jl not even the pleasure of a personal acquaintance, have H so frankly and honorably tendered me, inoluded that not H only of the inflexible end victorious democracy of your II congressional district, but also of the democratic party 11 throughout the Union, and the consequent assurance of II sucoess, I could not, consulting only my own feelings and I wishes, hesitate, respectfully and gratefully, but decld- I edly, to decline It. That any state of things will here- I after exist in which this indulgence of my own prefer- II ences would, in the opinion of true and faithful friends, II confllot with my duty to the political party to whioh my 9 whole life has been devoted, and to whioh I owe any per- I sonal sacrifice, is in the last degree Improbable. 1 I appreciate and honor your anxious desire to see the 1 integrity and firmness of the democratic party of the | Union fully vindicated as far an tne temperate due steady action of one who is. by his position and a just i observance of its proprieties. debarred from active participation in partisan conflict*, can aid in restoring its former efficiency, in rekindling ltd waning zeal, and in preserving the high and pure character for whioh it ha* been long and rightly distinguished, you may oontl, dently rely on iny co-operation Whether these deairable objects can be accomplished, mainly depend* on the ; course which la pursued by the respective friends of those prominent citizens among us who are made can1 didates for the Presidency. Should the capital of the i Union, during the approaching session of Congress, become the rallying point of their partizans, and not only their attention, but the time and attention of those who are charged with the direction of public aflairs. be devoted to President making instead of their appropriate duties, we shall have little to hope in this regard. But If mere political schemes and intrigues, however cunningly devised, and however profitable they may have heretofore appeared, shall, in the present emergency, give place to the unceasing and vigorous efforts , of all to preserve and protect the bleeding interests and perilled honor of our country?efforts whioh can alone i attract the confidence and support of the democratic masses?the result will prove far more ausplolous Scarcely ever has the essential welfare of the country i been in a more critical condition, or its administration in greater need of the energetic support of thoiie who i raised it to power With a probable majority against it i in the popular branoh of the National Legislature, and i but a small, and it is to be regretted, not a very harmoi nious majority in its favor, in the Senate, it may be called upon to vindicate the past, and will be obliged to i support, possibly, for an indefinite period, a distant and i difficult foreign war. The existence of that war has rei csived the official sanction ot every department of the i government which is required by the Constitution, and i it is due to the future well as present prosperity of this great nation, that It be triumphantly sustained, i Whatever may hereafter be the propriety of instituting I inquiries into the necessity of its occurrence.with a view to the just responsibility to public opinion of our public i servants, such an investigation may. at this time, and under existing circumstanoes, as well as upon principles of sound political morality, as of national expediency, ' be well regarded ns out of season. The war cannot now be concluded with honor, unless we receive from Mexico ' a just Indemnity for the past, and reasonable security for the future If these l>e not obtained the survivors of our gallant army, who have, by their deeds of valor, confirmed the respect and oompelled the admiration of the world, cannot be brought home without impeach , ID(*Dt 01 inn laurciK wiey nave mi iiumj won. ..... mories of the hemic dead shielded from the reflection " of having sacrificed their lives in a worse than useless content.
