The ex^ensus of the New tt'astle line were 's very heavy, in consequence of relaying the entire traok $ Notwithstanding the ltrgn net r?oaipts of the m<ia 1 lne, the road is a non-dividend investment. Arrange' ' men's have been made, by which the large debt of the ( company will be funded. The stockholders have agreed J to subscribe for new stock, at pat, to pay the Qoatirg 2 debt. The holders of the second mortgage have agreed jj to convert their bonds into stock at par; aod the holders < of the first mortgage have agreed to consolidate their ban, under the seourity of u new mortgage, to be paya- S ble in 13C0. Within the past year, heavy expenditures have been made in the way of permanent improvements to the track, to bridges, by an increase in engines, cars, * to the depots, workshops, St}. &s. It is anticipated that the oompany will toon bJ ablo to resume the payment of dividends, and that the stockholders will reap something I from their investment.

Diplomatic Affairi?South America?China. 81 The Congress of South American republics, 1,1 vhich was talked of some time ago, will not U) ake place; but in its stead, there should be rear his government, a congregation of ministers ot he highest grade fr< m those republics. Ilerc hey could consult together, and have the advice ind countenance of our government. Thus hey would be greatly fortifi?d in their mutual rnd to ixternal relations, and the United Sfate? would ar >ccupy the position of protector and patron of 'j' hese young republics?one so honorable to this j>( ountry and eo beneficial to them. This object n< s of so much importance, as to authorize the a ointment of ministers of the highest rank to " >ach of these republics We have followed too ong in the fashion of tin aristocratic courts of Europe, in paying deference to old monarchies, t is time that this government Bhould prove its ove for republican institutions, by placing remblics on equality with monarchies, in its diplonatic relations The only full mission we have Ja n South America is the imperial government of g<? Brazil, the weakest on the South American con- gr inent, and an off-shoot Irom the weakest aud< nost miserable government on the face of Europe. In cn?e the Soi'th American republics send *4 iunisters of the highest grade, (hs I have realon to believe, will be the case before long,) it vill become necessary to reciprocate, by send- M ng to each a minister plenipotentiary. It is to >d hoped there would be no question, as to the >ropriety of such a step. tl< A minister plenipotentiary should likewise be p? lent to China, as provided bv the diplomatic bill ately reported by the Committee ol Foreign Reat ions of the House. The new minister will lave crave questions of commerce to adjust with he Chinese government, and will be charged *| vith the execution of other instructions of great th mportance. Sufficient in known to induce the ?elief that Great Britain rat dilates the disinetn>ermentof the Chinese empire. Kecent evt-nts lave proved that the opium war was not underaken and carried on, at enormous expense^ for he mere purpose of forcing a market tor British gt merchants. It may happen that the purposes of he British government will strongly militate *g iguinst the interests of the Uaited Stutes; in vhich case, it would be the duty of our repretentative to resist the consummation of those de- * ' ligns, and especially to prevent the imperial go- w rermnent from being persuaded to consent to heir accomplishment. To effect this, our mi- h< lister should, at least, be equal in point of rank w .0 the representatives of other governments ia it Jhi na. , As our manifold interests are becoming more w md more extended abroad, and our relations with foreign countries are becoming multiplied, y we should widen the field of our di "omatic intercourse, and endeavor to reap all the advan- u [ages such extensive intercourse will ive us, in 0/ the interchange of commodities, and in the acluaiutance we shall be sure to form with tlie w< irts, the literature, and the customs of foreign lands. Galvihnsis. re' Washington, fkb. 4, 1818 yi JVhig anil Democratic National Convention? ** he " fVilmot Proviso, No 2"?Mr. IVitmot. hi The initiative steps have been taken ; we now [now the times and places designated for hold- *i ng the whig and democratic conventions. The ^ iemocrats have selected the fourth Monday in tl Vlay, at Baltimore ; the whigs, the first WedneH- " lay in June, in Independence Hall, in the city g' if Philadelphia. Both parties can now go to 8' work for their respective favorites; and" the 4 more crafty arrange the wires sothat they can be hi mlled to suit their notions. We scarcely care a copper for either party; but ? there are some things connected with the fdte of w Mr. Wilmot's proposition for direct taxes, which E we cannot omit to notice. On the day he brought it forward, Mr. Wilmot asserted that it was a *' bold. free, and straishtout measure : and so nine- tc ly-six of the members in the committee thought, when they voted for it; and so fventy-nine did n not think, who voted against it. This was on w Tuesday But one day intervened, when lo ! on voting in the House, on concurring in this P amendment of the committee, there were a hun- w dred and forty-three against it, and forty-four P only in its favor! What a change "came o'er f] the spirit "of the dreams of representatives!? What a mighty revolution ! In committee, the b names of members do not appear on the record, n tiut they do in the House ; and it may be, either m that the majority in the fir?*t instance, wished to commit the democrats to direct ta\es? by bring- w ng thein to the record, or that the friends who iccreily cherish direct taxation had not the lerve to openly make the avowal to the country. jD 3ut we cannot fathom, perhaps, the intention of f0i Congressmen?their designs are with them- th lelves. mi Mr. Wilmot has fullen under the peculinr ' ' lispleasltre of the Union. A few days ago, he iviis denounced for endeavoring to deftat the arid' bill of 1846, after it came back from the ,e Senate ; then the respects of the Postmaster- tb jeneral were paid to him, editorially, about the M lost ollice printing for the newspaper in that gen- 81 leman's district; and, last night, the Union ac- ?" m-ies him of proposing a scheme, that direct axes may 14 fall heavily on the slaves of the louth," says that " the administration does not 0 isk such idle schemed mischievous allies," and 0) :alls the amendment, " Proviso No. 2 " To this in ittack, Mr. Wilmot, to-day, wished to reply ; d< iut unanimous consent was not given, as two or w< hree friends of the administration objected. J? Fhe courtesy of a personal explanation is seldom f* efused ; and in this instance, it seems to us undir. Personal explanations should either be re- M used to all, or the privilege accorded without ]ei listinction Mr. Wilmot stands in a peculiar d? osition ; he is read out of the democratic of hurcli ; he is an infidel?an unbeliever. It may 1? >e, that in the nearly equal division of the two }n >arties of the House, nis vote .may decide a J.1! juestion, if he chooses to exercise the power. t he should, in such a case, ally himselt to the at lemocratic side, it would not be regarded as ar ' mishievous," we reckon. But "noun vrrrona." th _ _ Felix p< Washington, Feb. 4, 1848. The Objects of the War. th We think the objects of the war may be very asily explained. The first thing in the matter jB s the consistescy of the President. That con istency, as in the Oregon question, must be to naintamed at all hazards ; and hence it will be of ltterly impossible for the President to accept or ?j| nuke a treaty in any other way than by the " onquest of a peace; and if that conquest shall pj merge itself into the conquest of Mexico, the H, ibject will still be the prosecution of the war dl :o the conquest of a peace. But, sir, we do sus- ei ipet that, as in the Oregon question, the l'resi gt lent would have no objection, if the Senate or :lie House would take the responsibility, of f making a peace by stopping the war As the J" jebate goes on, this opinion strengthens, and he prospect of the passage of the ten regiment nil heroines more nnti more rliiliinna Th* hill ... ivill pass the Senate, though some doubt it even tt [here, but we venture to say that it will be U stopped in the House. 1,1 Tne speech of Mr. Sevier, to-day, is not quite j! so btronjt I or the annexation of all Mexico as he " was at the last session ; from which we infer tj, hat if the House grapples the subject with a s? <trong hand, they can prevent its becoming the pi Jemocratic capital lor the next campaign. A th jreat effort will be made in the House to fore- T stall Gen. Caaa in this calculation. G. Washington, Feb. I, 18IS. ? The Report of the Day. 01 We have had an interesting day in both Houses of Congress. The letter of General r? raylor, read in the House to-day, and which ^ was sent to you by telegraph exclusively, was Ti quite a feather in the cayi of the Taylor men. J," l'hey were charmed with it?they were in rap- s. ures, and more than ever considered the old Jjf nan the trump card. _ tti But tne friends of Mr. Clay arc in a state ot * irgani/ation and confidence which will admit b' ?f no doubt, with them, as to the nomination.? M r* rhey think that the State of New York ettles p, lie question?that the division in the democra- m ic family there, and the line opening for Mr. m Dlay, will carry him through. _ _ h By the way, while speaking of Mr. Clay, it is not niniss to say, that the other evening a large 1-tsnhment of friends took him up to see the exhibition of the model artiits of Pr. Collyr, tt *nd we learn that to-day, the Doctor, with the ,x young ladies', paid their respects to the great it statesman, at his reception room, at the United 1>( Staten Hotel. We saw Mr. CLy this evening, J'' and hia health and spirts are as line e.a his beet *' Iriends could wish. _ dl In the Senate, to-day, Mr Sevier's speech gave h, ti some little further iht into Mexican : t j' lairs.

A bill to amend an act entitled an act granting hull ,y for five years to widows und orphans of ofHoers and Idlers who may have died in the service of the United ates, was then takeu up and read. Mr. Dickinson asked that the last section be read ;ain. and it was read. Mr. Dickinson?I would suggest that the last section i amended by inserting "whatever may have been the me of the marriage." (After a pause ) Mr. President, am informed that it is not necessary so to amend this 11; and I therefore withdraw my amendment. Mr. Nines said this was a bill of great Importance, and > greatly feared it had not received that consideration ' bich its importance demanded. He did not understand fully In all its bearings; he did not know how tar it Rioted the aot whioh it was intended to amend. He ould like to understand all these things before he was died upon to vote. It granted five years' half pay to ! le soldiers of the army who died in the servico of the 1 nited States. Did this act inteud to rmbraoe the offl- ' 'is prirat?B. musicians &c , of the whole armies of thy ' nited States .' Did it embrace the men of that branch ! the army. who were only considered a temporary 'anoh of the army ! Did It einbrac* volunteers ? He ' >uld like to be answered upon these quest ions. Mr Johnson, of Louisiana n?id this bill was recora- 1 ended by the President of the United Stated; it w?s ported upon the sune principled which were the buels ihe memorial presented by the Senator from New ork,(Mr. Dix) from officers of the army, and the presention of which he had spcompitnled with en me most elolent remarks. The objeot of the bill wan to grant ilf pay for five years to those widows and orphans cf le soldiers - officers and men, who die in the servioe of i# United States. It was to place the regular .troops id tbo volunteers upon the same footing. Mr. Dix said that the memorial presented by him had to ?bjects? one was, that the widows and orphans of le regular troops, who might die in the service, should loeivo half pay for life; the other that they should revive half pay for five years. Tha bill now before the ;nat? embraced only one of these objects, the latter, anting the halt' pay lor five years. Mr. Nilei?i would like to know if the bill mnk>s any iffrrenoe t etween * case where a man dies; ttnd where 0 Is killed, lu the eerv.oe of the United states? Mr. Dix ?No distinction Mr. Niles?1 hope the bill will be laid over till tolorrow. And it was laid over. A message from the President ot the United States as here received, from tbo hands of >.

Atone o'clock the b 11 providing for ten regiments of <gular infantry to i-ervo during the war wl'.h Mexico, as taken up again as the special order. Mr. Sevikr "took the floor. If this discussion, Mr resident, which has been sustained for the last two e-ks. had been nonfln* d to the merits ot the bill, which roposts an addition of ten regiments to tbe military itablisbment in Mexico, I should most certainly have iken no part in this debate. My want of military exrrience, both iu practice and in theory, would have ?en reasons sufficient for adopting thin course. I?ls ot my object now. sir to dwell at nny length on the lerits of this measure. I shall vote for it, sir, because has been recommended by t ho proper authority to hich Is confided the nianai^eiR'nt of all our wars by the institution; I shall voto for it, because It has received :e sanation of the intelligent and experienced men imposing the military committee, to whom tbe examation ot snoh subjects properly belongs. I shall vote r it, sir, because I regard it as a necersary measure to attainment of that great objeot, a speedy and percent peace with Mexico; I shall vote for it, becaus* regard it ns u wise and expedient measure in a financial >w, calculated to relieve the treasury to a great exnt of the burdens which have fallen upon It in the osecutiou of tbe w^r For all tbesn general asons, sir, without goiig into details, I shall vote for lis bill, sir, with great pleasure. My partloular objeot. r. President, is to vindicate the Preeident of the United lates, for whom I have strong personal regard, and also 1 a member of that party, of whom he Is the represents ve, from the general attacks which have been made ?on him in regard to the origin of the war. tbe manageent of the war, and the ultimate objects of the war.? n eaoh of these three points I propose to submit some iservations to the Senate, if my health will boar me out the examination. In the first place, then, Mr Preslmt, we oome to the oauses of the war, and these causes are the immediate cause, and causes more or less roots. Mr. Sevier then assumed, as an indisputable ot, that the Immediate cau*e of the war was the attack r the Mexicans on this side of the Rio Urande upon hornton's command. and its discomfiture or capture prisoners of war. This was tbe oause of the President's Iter to Congress of tbe Uth of Msy, 1346, and of the ant clariug the war two dsyn thereafter. Tbe remote causes the war lay in tbe cession of Louisiana and Florida? the spoliations of Mexico, and in the resolutions, idenendenoe. and admission of Texas into this Union i these remote causes the President of the Uolted ' :ates had no agency whatever. Louisiana was acquir- 1 I when he was a minor He nits not iu oar councils ' ; the time of the treaty with Spain cf 1819, nor was he 1 i active agent in the annexation of Texas, because 1 lat aot was consummated the day before he came into >w?r by hia predecessor, President Tyler. In these ' ur causes then, these remote causes, the President oi te United States had no agenoy whatever. But it is ' ue that the party to which he belongs had a great ' al to do with every one of these causes Jt was that irty which seoured the acquisition of Louisiana, In >1)3; it wu that party which acquired Kloridt of Spain. ' i 1819; it wu that party which compelled Mexico by eaty in IB'.'B, to provide for the payment of claims due citlinns of the United States; It was the same party 1 which the country was indebted lor the annexation c Texas, which we nave lairly secured, and which at ' I hazards, we shall keep And, sir, if we get any ter- f tory from Mexioo, it will be due to the same party, ' id against the same opposition as heretofore, fore passing sentence of condemnation upon the esident, it would then have been proper for his assailits, on the other hand, to have looted back at the con- | tion ofouroountry at the time became into power, ] eternally and Internally. Kxternally, there were two eat questions to be settled, which had produced a high ate of excitement in the publio mind?one wu the exas (jusstion, and the other was the Oregon question, i the settlement cf the Texas question he bad to 1 eat the pride and interett of Mexico-In the ttlement of the Oregon question he had to oontend 1 ;ainst the pride and Interest of Knglaod, and in the I itlement of both he was piompted by every consider*- ' on to pay every regard to tbe pride and interests of the ntted States Mr. Ssvier here Dioceeded into a reoapi llation of the history ot tb?

Beautifully leas " Mr. Skvikji?Well, air, '* beautifully less I acoept the amendment. It was urged that the whole cause of the w*r. was this order to General Taylor. He differed materially with the gentleman npon thla point. He would refer them to the lettnr of Commodore Conner, then in corn uc and of the fleet of obaervation, that the Information ho received from Vera Cruz waa. that the sountry of Texas waa to be invaded Also, to the proilauiatlon of General Ampudia, of the '27th of March, it San Luis Potosl, wbich waa Issued a few days after Taylor's arrival on the llio Grande, whioh arrival, how>ver, w:\s unknowu to Ampudia. That proclamation declared his Intention to Invade and reconquer Texas ; and that, the cause of his maroh was the unjust annexation cf that country by th?? United States government. Mr S said that it had been said by the Senator from Maryland, Mr J bnsou, (who bad advocated the pros* eutlon of the war.) hut who had onmplained bitterly,that. General Taylor hid not been sent to the llio Grande ^ with a firca sutllclent to scare the Mexloans off, and 9 frighten them off from crossing the llio Grando This waa, in the opinion of Mr S , very unkind ; when It would be flr'ii from the documents before hltn, that General Taylor waa instructed to call upon the Gotnrnora of Louisiana, Texas, Kentucky, and Tennessee, f ir nny amount of troops ho may desire. But General Taylor had said he did not want any troope. General Gaines had sent him some few companl'S, which act General Taylor disapproved of. for he did not deaire them. The Governora of those States had been advised , by the War Department to honor any drafts for men whioh General Taylor might make upon them If the oenmor irom .viaryiana ware in nis seat, 110 wouia s?y to him, that Id speaking in furor of the war he had made one great p< lltical blunder, and h? would now advise him not t" make another by inveighing against the military akill and foresight cf Ueneral Taylor Mr Sevier thought that he had now r;onn over sufficiently the history of thn war, to show that the President has managed : these whole affaira ainoe the oomaasneenient of the ad- 1 ministration He thought the President ha* shown his ,1 willingness to settle all difficulties peaceably,; his whole \ course has been o-c of peace, and no nther man ' could hare acted differently than hs has done Tha rresident hoi acted boldly (Irmly, and with the utmost prudence and caution ; and this, too, in spite of tha insults and taunts Showered upon him. He has noted witn prudence, for he has received mote insnlts from Mexioo than any other holding hit-position aver recti vet], and more thin he hoped any other man would bear from any nation. He thought that the management of th'.a war was another point on which the President Lad been arraigned, but this was not mora just than the ether accusations.

Tha opponent* of the war said they would not discusa tba luestion then, but after tha war was over they would? lold the President to account.

Tne two million biil, and then the three millions were opposed, and the bill.i for supplies; and yet, with *11 thla opposition, us had accomplished tha moat brilliant remits. Mr. Sevier would come now to thn main part of bis speeoh. What is the ohjectof the war.' It is a speedy and honorablu peaoe?a peace which shall give ua the indemnities due to our citlxeca, and to some extant, it least, thn expenses of ths war. This indemnity in tho oggregate, was proposed to take in territory, and this territory, the last year it was proposed, should not xceel the area of New Mexico and California. The President said then, that theae territories would have joen sufficient ; and even after the battle of Buen* V ista. a ad thn fall of Vera Crux, these terins would have jeen accepted And before the fill of Mexioo, a balanoe in money, to a greater amount, than would now be proposed, would have been paid Co Mexico for the territories rrqulred of her. At the opening of thla session, the Pre* ident had amply detailed the whole subjeet of the war and its objects Descanting upon this subjeot, and the views exprrssed 1>y Mr Bt-11 regarding the objeota of the President towards Mexioo. Mr. Bri.l rosn to explain. He supposed that the President was opposed to any peace that we could now get, because no existing government in Mexioo had the powt to grant thn security require!; a eternity thai we ibuuld bave a permanent peace with Mexioo, and that there should be hereafter no necessity to go to war with llexioo or with any body else in reference to that oounry. Mr. Skvikr -- Kxactly; I understand the Senator. Mr. Bkll ?The reason why I bad supposed the admilistration would accept of no proposition of peace from ,V.e existing government iu Mexioo, labsoauae it haa not ,he power to give the aeourlty required, that no foreign fovurtin?nt shall hereafter be permitted to plantltafoot in Mexioo.
