We give, in another column, Lorn;- important intelligence received from Mew Hampshire lu?t evening A State rlection took place there on Tuesday of this week, in which the grest question ef the Mexican war was made a tee: between he two partita before the people; and the result of this content, which may be considered u pioneer or preliminary battle for the Presidency, hia been 111 favor of t:ie democratic parly. A? far as heard ironi, the democratic \oU- bus been increased several hundred?equnl to a thouBind or twelve hundred throughout the S?ate? just about sufficient to keep up the excitement between the two parties. This election was considered so important, as bearing on the Presidential question in November next, that Senator Houston, from Washington, went down to New Hampshire to explain to the people the origin and cause of the annexation of Texas, with all Us consequence?, the Mexican war, and the result of that great con i?oi uriwrcu iuc iwu irjJiHMlfS. Illirft'.T VJrCC" 1<F, of this city, was deputed by the whigs on a J like mission, on the other side ot the question, and met the distinguished Texan Senator in the arena; giving argument for argument, Rod illustrating point for point, the differences between the two parties. The result is now in a great measure before lis. The democrats, thus tar, have triumphed by a considerable majority, and the whig*, as of old, have little left but their honor, their courage, and their hopes for the future: matters which they have had in abundance for the last forty yeare. Wlliuot 1'rovlMi \ Compromise. By the settlement cf the Mexican war in the ratification of the treaty ot peacr, now on l'sway from the United States to Mexico, the different j political pdrties into which the country is divId- ! ed, will, in the course of ?. few mouths, at-sume , anew relationship towards each other. As we have remarked on a former occasion, the issues which divided the parties of this country before the commencement of that war, have been either settled defiuitely, or abandoned by mutual consent. With the ratification of this treatry, a new and a formidable question is presented, one which Mr. Clay, Mr. Calhoun, and ottier great statesmen, sought to avoid in all their speeches and resolutions on the subject of the war. This question?we mean the Wilinot proviso, or the principle whether this new territory ceded to ue by this treaty shall be free or otherwise? was discussed at the last session of Congress , with much spirit and feeling; and the probability is, that as soon as the treaty shall have been ratified, it will be again brought tip. Now, the Qt.foc ,1 O ?< <1 1 mocracy of the North, are to a man opposed to its passage ; wc may look, when the subject again comes up for discussion, to a seen* of excitement which will produce a perfect row at the cepitol, amoag all parties. It will occupy the a> tention of Congress for prolnbly the remainder of the session, without any conclusion being arrived at; and the Presidential election coming on, it will be forced into it, for the purpose of catching the abolition votes.? The abolitienists. of course, will vote for it, and for any man who advocates it. This party polled some sixty thousand votes nt the last election, and l>y accessions, and by the attaining of majority by their sons and relatives, it will probably number seventy thousand at the next election. For some few years past a portion of the Northern whigs,and the whole of the whigs in N'w Knglnnd, hare been toadying to the abolitionists, nud uaing every argument ii their I power to get their votes and their influence; and i recently the barnburners of New York have embraced the principle of this proviso. Hitherto, the abolitirn'sis have keptss a separate and in- ; dependent party ia our Presidential elections; i and in the coming contest it 1m not lik'ly that they will f irm a junction with the Northern and ' Eastern whigs aid tlir barnburners, even if the latter select a candidate favorable to tli ? m asure. Now, if such h j motion fin in is were made, the fi.rces of tlic two par'.i's would be j nunirr icuiij |T'wniui cuum^ii *' ncn in?*ir inn It; and if they did, we would have,. lor the first time , in the Irmory of our country, a President elected | "> 'he question of abolition ; but n. union of this kind i? out of the question, although it rniy be talked of when the proper time arrives. Again, in the Helton of Congress that wjll enaue rfit-r the Presidential election, this question will be again retifwej ; and a* there will be then nothing to be guned l?y procrastination, it will probably be t'cided; bu; in a way, we appiehend, not to disturb t!i? pel in.itiiwce or s'rength j of our ir.Jtitirions.

This, probably, will be the course of political matters for a year to come ; but no matter how l high the abolition excitement may run, we think ' ; there is too muck of that very valuable and usei tul commodity among the masses of the people, called common sense, to permit the subject to , seriously threaten the stability of our institu| tions and government. It will probably be one , of those scenes which occur in every country, aud which act the part of a safety valve to a | steam engine, by allowing the extra steam to escape and be dissipated. This proviso will furnish abundance of material for th? abolitionists of New England to expend their eloquence on; but they will hardly set the Potomac on fire, no matter how fiery their speeches may be. Tun Tksaty and the Press.?The newspaper I re?s seems to be yet a good der.l at fault in relation to the treaty. As great a division appears to exist in this region of public opinion, without reference to party, as prevailed in the Senate, pending its secret debates. Generally, however, the public prints are gradually consigning themselves, with some degree of satisfaction, to that state of peace which now dawns upon all. We hope soon to be able to learn the character of the secret debates in the Senate, and the various votes given during the discussions. The seal of secrecy never ought to have been put on in these matters. The attempt to give an air of mystery to the public affairs of a republican government, is merely an endeavor, as it were, to put on the absurd garments and ridiculous suits used five centuries ?go, and which are never resorted to, by any persons, except in fancy dress balls or masquerades, in order to moke amusement, and to laugh at each other ? The Senate of the United Statos. locking its door?, and endeavoring to conceal what it is doing, is just abuutas natural and sensible as some old fool at one of our fashionable parties, trying :o pass off as a man of fashion, or to personata the character of Punch. Secrecy in public affiirs is simple absurdity. We should despise it?we should put it down.? Whenever we can get the secret proceedings of the Senate we will publish them to the community, us we have already done, and always have done. Ail those matters are the property of the American people, and belong to thpm, and not exclusively to the Senate, or any particular set ot men who happen to be temporarily in power for a d?y, a inonih, a year. Political Fkkli.no in Ireland.?By every steamer we learn that famine, political degradation, and p;irty strife, still fearfully agitate that unfortunate country. The anti-English class or portion of her inhabitants, which comprists three-fourths of her population, is now divided into three distinct parties, nainsly?the old trd young Ire'aod parties, and a split from the " young Ireland" party, whose opinions nre still more violent and hostile to England than the original physical force party. This new party is, in its feeling and spirit, a good deal similar to the Irish confederation | hen*, and auxiously awaits some favorable conjunction of circumstances, for breaking out into open hostility. This crisis they expect will accrue on tht death of Louis Philippe, in which event a war between Eugland and France is confidently predicted by many ; and, in such an event, they hope that the disaffected state of Ireland 111*7 invite the French to attempt lauding un army in that country, j which, if successful, would bring about , a simultaneous rising in Ireland, which England, while contending with her power- 1 fill neighbor, might fiad it impossible to suppress. They argue that, in this event, their schemes for placing themselves on an independent footing with England, as a distinct nation, ' may not prove so ridiculous and Utopian, as the generality of people of other countries seem inclined to believe, who consider her case hopeless, nnd that she must forever remain a powerless appendnge to the British crown. They also rely upon the sympathy and active co-operation of their countrymen abroad, especially in the United Slates and the British provinces of Ame- l ricn; aim moreover consider ine aisauection oi I | the Jriahmen in the British army and navy, of , grep.t importance to their cause. The Irish con- i federation in this city are energically advoca- { ting n military organization here, to be prepared tor these coming events, which would enable i them to embark a considerable force of well- ' drilled men, who would secretly proceed to J Fr.nce, from whence they would seize on a i favorable opportunity of uuiting with their coun- i trymen. There is no doubt that, in her desperate cir- ( cuinr-tances, the political excitement which now j reigns in Ireland must be immense, and a s'-rious 1 explosion may be looked for; but whether it will , happen at the favorable moment for success, has i yet to transpire. 1 The Spring Elkc rioxs ?Next month the charter election will tike place for the election of Mayor aud Alderman of this great and glorious city. And in this instance it becomes the duty of the tradesmen, mechanics, and laborers, to look wrll before depositing their vote in the ballot box, and see if the min thus up for ofiice is one who can be depended upon ; study whether he is capable, honest, und willing to protect the poorer clawes froui the over burdensome taxation winch now exists to un extent quite unnecessary fur the regulation and management of the city government, but merely oppresses the mechanic and middling classes of | society by an over-taxation. 1 Now, it'we had u set of aldermen capable and willing to undertake a reformation in city matters, they would gain for themselves an everlasting reputation, and, at the same time, the thanks of the citizens generally. Such men we want as candidates for the ensuing election?yes, m^n who are pledged to reform will surely meet with Fuccess. The j re'ent Common Council, like many previous ones, ar? aitogethcrincapable of managing the city affairs as they ought to be. It is well known (or the last year our city has been in a deplorable condition; dirty streets, many of 1 which mi- neirlv knee deep with muj and filth, tor "her with a majority of other matters connected with the city government, are almost as nnich sin th. red up a<d kept from the public 'ye ?y these prole^d fathers of reform, us the stones in the. street are covered with dirt. Yet the people pay the same umouiit ot tax*#, and this ye?*r we beln ve h little more,especially for print- ! ing * d advertisements, as one of its members I is soni'-whit interested in the profits of such j jobs. To be sure an attempt has been made to re- 1 lieve tiie city of two hundred thousand dollars I taxation, which is now paid lor a useless and extravagant expenditure on police. This retrenchment has been attempted ultnoat at the last hour ol thfir administration, but is nuflered to lay on the table without any furiliT action. The fuct is, that a new set of men will be ttupported at the comin<; election, pledged to reform, reduction of tax**, clean street?, fcc. &c., to4." ther with a purification of the many abuses which now exist in the pre-ent police system; and that reform, in all probability, will be effected bv the democratic party. The people want reform, and reform they must | have ; so, prepare for ilie election next month. i , Tu #t< am-ship Camukia h in her nineteenth j day. i TGLBOKtratC fflTBLLMHlCKi Summary. We have received, from au occasional correspondent at Washington, a sort of eyllabuB of the instructions of our government to the Hon. John Slidell, on his mission to Mexico, which resulted in the war with that country. The instructions are apparently o^very little importance; but, as showing the policy of this government relative to the affairs of this continent and their intentions in regard to Mexico, from the beginning, they are ot considerable consequence, as time will reveal. But of this, more anon. The proceedings in Congress will be found highly interesting. Ia the Senate, Mr. Douglas*, of Illinois, brought up a bill for a new territorial government for Nebraska, which was favorably received, and read twice. Mr. Benton presented a resolution for the encouragement of the purchase of American hemp lor the navy. Several relief bills were considered; and the one for the heirs of John Paul Jones was passed. The ten regiment bill was next taken in hand on its linal passage, when Mr. Calhoun expressed a desire, that the vote would not be taken until the next day, as he wished to express his views in reference thereto. Mr. Allen advocated its immediate passage, to provide against emergencies. Messrs. Cass, Foot and Mason also wished to have the matter settled at once; while, on the other hand, Mr. Mangum moved that the bill be postponed for a fortnight, but his motion was lost by a vote of 28 to 18 Mr. Baldwin, of Connecticut, then obtained the floor, and expressed surprise at the urgency manifested by Senators to hasten the passage oi the bill, in the face of a prospective peace. After which, Mr. Calhoun secured the floor, and moved an adjournment until to-morrow, which was carried. The House was principally occupied with two questions ; the first was the consideration of the President's message refusing information relative to the instructions, given to Mr. Slidell, by the government, while on his mission to Mexico, during which Mr. Hoot, of Ohio, took occasion to make a political speech, and pledged the vote of his State to the friends of the W llmot proviso. The afldir was disposed of by Mr. McKay moving its reference to the Committee on Foreign Reflations. The other question, was a bill offered by Mr. Morehe&d, of Kentucky, for an abatement, or reduction, of the payment of revenue duties; which was ably defended by Mr. McKay, of North Carolina, Mr. Hunt, of New York, and Mr. Pollock, of Pennsylvania; and opposed as strenuously by Mr. Murphy, of New York, and Mr. Grinnell, of Massachusetts. Several other gentlemen addressed the House on the nature of the bill, pro and con; but an adjournment was moved and carried, before final action was had on the subject. We received from Harrisburg, Pa , the proceedings of the Whig Sta e Convention which organized there yesterday; from Albany, the proceedings of our State Legislature; election returns trom .New Hampshire, and a variety ot despatches from other places?all of which will mark the enterprise of this department of the New York Herald. SHB CALL OF OONCHLOSS. THE INSTRUCTIONS TO MR. SLIDELL. &c., &c., tic. Washington, March 15, 1348 As there appears to be some desire to see the instructions to the Hon. John Slidell, the Minister to Mexico previous to the declaration af War. I have taken upon myself the liberty of transmiting to you a syllabus of them la consequence ol a letter received by our government from Mr. John lllacK, the United States Consul at the City of Mexico, dated Sept. 17, 18-15, stating that the Mexican government had at length siynfied its willingness to treat for the settlement of difliculties between the two jovernments, Mr. iiuchanun, on the 20th ot November,despatched the following instructions ;o Mr. John Shdell, then at New Orleans, commissioned as Minister Plenipotentiary to Mexico. Alter repeating to Mr. Slidell the objects of the nission, which were to counteract the designs >f foreigu powers against the interests of the jiuiru omicii, 11 iiu iu restore irienaiy anu peaceul relations previously existing between the two :ountries, trie instructions declare that the true ntere6ts of the American republic require the >ursuit of a uniform American policy, different rom that of European governments; that the talance of power doctrine cannot be tolerated >n this continent; and that no interterence, even n the shape of mediation, for the adjustment of difficulties between tni3 country aud Mexico will be allowed. The attention of the minister is then directed :o the claims of our citizens against Mexico, which he is instructed to urge strenuously, and ,o the many acts of this government declaratory of their validity. Tliose claims and the nets of injustice of Mexico, are enumerated. The case is argued clearly and powerfully, and the right is demonstrated to be on the side cf tins government. It is then remarked that those claims could not then be extinguished by the Mexican iovcrament by the payment of money, aud that is the joint resolution for annexing Tex is authorised the adjustment ol all questions of boundary, this government would be willing to assume the debts ol Mexico due our citizens, in consideration nl the extension of the boundary ot the United Slates The Rio Grande is the true boundary of Tex *8, aud Mr. Buchanan goes on to prove this position from the history of this country and of Mexico, and inform* Mr. SI i dell that tne independence ol Texas is not to be admitted to be a question. It was different, however, with regard to New Mexico. That country the Texans never conquered; and us its possession was desirable to the United States, it was a lit sublet for negotiation For the w hole ot New Mexico and the boundary ol the Rto Grande, Mr. Slidell was authorised to uffer to atsume payment of the debts due our citizeus, and, iu addition, to pay Mexico live millions of dollars for the boundary of tlie Ilio Uratd ifrom its mouth to the source. To assume the payment of the claims of our citizens, Mr. 3 was instructed to obtain California, U possible, and for the line running from the smith. em extremity of New Mexico to the Pacific, ao us to include S. 11 Francisco, he was authorized to ofler twenty millions ; for the hue embracing Monterey, twenty-live millions.

Modbrn Dramatic Literature ?Some of the newspapers have been speaking highly ia praise ol a new drama, by some strange author, founded upon some old colonial character, who happened to distinguish himself somewhere in Maiden lane, during the last century, or the century before the last. It appears that Mr. Murdoch, the actor, possesses this tragedy, and complains bitterly because, as he says, the theatres here refuse to bring it out for him. He has, therefore, gone to Pniladelphia, in the hopes of obtaining bett?r success there. We have 110 great opinion of this new tragedy, or of any new tragedy, or of any kind of classical and dramatic literature written in the present day. All people who possess a language and a civilization ot their own, have distinguished themselves, in some period of their history, bv the development of ilruniatin peniua. The Greeks, the Rom ins, the French, the English, the Italians, tiie Germans, the Spanish, have all hud their own dramatic literature, ?nd have completely exhausted the subj"ct. The classical dramatic literature of the English race, in ihc English lunguage, is ended; and anything new must be merely an imitation of the old. Shakspeare and his contemporaries, and a few names which follow in the last century, have exhausted all the ideas, feelings, situations and characters of human nature.' It is, therefore, folly and nonsense to get up new plays, which can be nothing else but rehus'ies?a mere re-cooking, or rtfacciamentos. Such plays may be performed a few months, and then consigned to dust and ashes. Shakspeare, Sheridan and a few others, live forever. "Sic transit gloria inundi Railroad Freight to Eternity.?We heard many enciuiries made by simple honest people, pending the transport of the deceased John Quincy Adams through our city, as to who he was, and where he came from, and what he had done to excite so much funeral honor 1 Alas! what a commentary on the fame and glory of this world ! But a greater commentary than the above mere ignorance, has been made by an act which " beats all creation." It seeins, according to the Tribune, lhat the body oT Mr. Adams was shipped as freight, on board the railroad cars of the Hartford and New Ilaven Railroad company, and mat ircxglit wa3 charged mid paid tor, upon the dead body !
