We give, in another column, Loni; iinm>rtant intelligence received from New II mi'shire luft evening A Stare flection took place there on Tuesday of this week, in which the grest question ef the Mexican w*r was made a test 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, hit been in favor of t:.e democratic party. A? far as heard Irom, the democratic \ot? lias been increased several hundred?equal to a thousand or twelve hundred throughout the S ute? just about sufficient to keep up the excitemcnt between the two parties. This election was considered eo important, cs bearing on the Presidential question in November next, that Senator Houston, from Washington, went down to Now Hampshire to explain to the people the origin and cause of the annexation of Texas, with all its consequence e, the Mexican war, and the result of thai great cor.tast between the two republics. Horace Greeley, of this city, was deputed by the whigs on a like mission, on the other side oi the question, and met the distinguished Texan Senator in the arena; giving argument for argument, and illustrating point for point, the differences between the two parties. The result is now in a great measure before na. The democrats, thus far, 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 years. Wlliuot i'rovia(i_v Compromise. By the settlement rf the Mexican war in the ratification of the treaty of peace, now on l'sway ; from the United States to Mexico, the different | political p-irties in'o which tho country is divid- j ed, will, in the course of a fow months, assume a new 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, iiave been either settled definitely, or abandoned by mutual concent. With the ratification of this trea'.ry, a new and a formidable question is presented, one which Mr. Clay, Mr. Calhoun, and ottier great statesmen, sought to avoid in all their npeeches and resolutions on the subject of the war. This question?mean the Wilmot proviso, or the principle whether this new territory ceded to us bv this treaty shallbe free or otherwise? was discussed at the lust session of Con^r^ss with much spirit and feeling; and the probability is, that as soon as the treaty shall have been ratified, it will be again brought up. Now, the Southern States, and a large portion of the de mocracy of the North, are to a inan opposed to its passage ; and we may look, when the subject again comes up for discussion, to a scene of excitement which will produce a perfect row at the capitol, amoig all parties. It will occupy the attention of Congress for probtbly the remainder of the session, without any conclusion being arrived at ; and the Presidential election coming on, it will be forced into it, for th* purpose of catching the abolition votes.? The kbolitisnists. of courar, will vote for it, and for any man who advocates it. This party polled ?ome sixty thousand votes at the last election, and by 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 whig*,and the whole of the whigs in New England, hare been toadying to the abolitionists, tutd using every argument in their power to cet their \ <U\- anil their influence: and recently the barnKiirr.eis of New York have embrncd the principle of ihis provino. Hitherto, tha abohticn'sla ha\< i"'pts" a separate ar.d independent party ia our Presidential elections; and in the coniiii contest it is no' likely that tbey will firm a junction with the Northern and Liatern wi.iga pi d the barnburners, even if the latter 6elect u candidate favorable to th ? nvaeure. Now, if sueh a j lrciiou oa til id were made, the f?.rcee of tlie two par.W s would i?e numerically powerful enough to elei.t their inan; end if they did, we would have, for the fust time in the history of our country, a President elected "n ' he question of abolition ; but a union of this kind i* out of the question, although it maybe talked of when the proper time arrives. Ag.iin, in the session of Congreaa that will ensue p.fter the Presidential election, this question will be a^ain rem-wed ; end mthere will be then nothing to be gK,neij by procrastination, it will ki? i? .1.... i.j i ... - ?

This, probably, will be the course of political mutters lor a year to come ; but no matter how hifli the abolition excitement may run, we think there is too muck of that very valuable and useful commodity among the masses of the people, called common sense, to permit the subject to seriously threaten the stability of our institutions and government. It will probably be one I of those scenes which occur in every country, and which act the part of a safety valve to a i steam engine, by allowing the extra steam to escape anJ be dissipated. This proviso will furnish abundance of material for th? abolitionists of New England to expend their eloquence on; but they will hardly get the Potomac on fire, no matter how fiery their speeches may be. The Thsaty and the Pkess.?The newspaper I tpf3 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 bs 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 matten. The attempt to give an air of mystery to the public afiairs of a republican government, is merely an endeavor, as it were, to put on the absurd garments and ridiculous suits used five centuries ago, and which are never resorted to, by any persons, except in fancy drees balls or masquerades, in order to moke amusement, and to laueh at each other ? The Senate of the United States, locking its door?, and endeavoring to conceal what it is doing, is just abuut as natural and sensible as some old fool at one of our fashionable parties, trying :o pass off as a man of fashion, or to personals the character of Punch. Secrecy in public afl'urs 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, as we have already done, and always have done. Ai! these matters are the property of the American people, and belong to them, and not exclusively to the Senate, or any particular set ot men who happen to be temporarily in power for a d?y, a month, a year. Political Fkkli.no in Ireland.?By every eictuuer we ieam mat iamine, political cegradtttion, anil p;iriy strife, still fearfully agitate that unfortunate country. The anti-English class or portion of her inhabitants, which comprises three-fourths of her population, is now divided into three distinct parties, namtly?the old ard young Ire'aod parties, and a s^lit from the " young Ireland" party, whose opinions are still more violent and hostile to England than the original physical force party. This new party it, in its feeling and spirit, a good deal similar to the Irish confederation here, and hiivioualv await* Rome favnr.ihl<- #>nn. junction of circumstances, for breaking out into open hos!ility. This crisis they expect will accrue on tli* death of Louis Philippe, in which event a war between England and France is confidently predicted by many ; and, in such an event, they hope that the disaffected state of Ireland nny invite the French to attempt landing an army in that country, which, if successful, would bring about a simultaneous rising in Ireland, which England, while contending with her powerful neighbor, might fiiid 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, end that she must forever remain a powerless appendage to the British crown. They also rely upon the sympathy and active co-operation of their countrymen abroad, especially in the United States and the British provinces of America: and moreover consider the disaffection of the Irishmen in the British army and navy, of great importance to their cause. The Irish confederation in this city are energically advocating (i military organization here, to be prepared (or these coming events, which would enable them to embark a considerable force of welldrilled men, who would secretly proceed to Fr .nce, from whence they would seize on a favorable opportunity of uuiting with their countrymen. There is no doubt that, in her desperate circumstances, the political excitement which now rtigns in Ireland must be immense, and a serious explosion may be looked for; but whether it will happen at the favorable moment lor success, has I yet to transpire. The Spring Emotions ?N'ext month the charter rlection 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 well before depositing th^ir vots in the bal'<H box, and see if the nun thus up for ofiice is one who can be depended upon ; study whether he is capable, honest, hnd willing to protect the poorer clawea froui the over burdensome taxation which now exists to un extent quite unnecessary for the regulation and managem?nt of the city government, but merely oppresses the mechanic and middling classes of society by an over-taxation. Now, if we had a set of aldermen capable and Willing to undertake a rpfnrmatmn in r>ifu m?i. tore, 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, men who ar? pledged to re! form will surely meet with success. The present Common Council, like many previous on?-B, iir-.' rr together incapable of managing | the city affairs a* thejr ought to be. It is well j kuown (or the Inst jrear our city has been in a deplorable condition; dirty streets, many of which me nearly knee deep with muj and filth, tope'her with a majority of other matters connected with the city government, are almost as nrucli smotlu red up and kept froin the public eye 1 y these prote- ?, d tatlirrs of reform, as the ?tones in the street ura covered with dirt Yet the people pay the same umoui.t ot tax's, and this yeer we beli? ve a little more, especially for printI ing a d adverti?em? uts, as one of its member* is somewhat interested in the profits of such , jobs. Tube sure an attempt has been made to relieve tiie city of two hundred thousand dollars taxation, which is now paid for a useless and extravagant expenditure on police. This retrenchment lint been attempted almost at the la?t hour | of their administration, but is snllered to lay on the table without any further action.

Tii ht am-vlup Camiikia is in her nineteenth I <*?/ i I TELEGRAPHIC ITTELHSEHCE, 1_ .. t-r*y;-? -?jg . ml Bummiry We have received, from an occasional corretpondent at Washington, a sort of syllabus of the j instructions of our government to the Hon. John Slidell, ou his mission to Mexico, which result* \ ed in the war with that country. The instrucI tions are apparently of very little importance: but, as showing the policy of this government relative to the attain of this continent and their intentions in regard to Mexico, from the beginning, they are of considerable consequence, aa time will reveal. But of this, more anoa. The proceedings in Congress will be found highly interesting. Ia the Senate, Mr. Douglass, of Illinois, brought up a bill for a new territorial government for Nebraska, which was favorably received, nnd read twice. Mr. Benton presented a resolution for the eucourI agement 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 iu hand on its final passage, when Mr. Calhoun expressed a desire, that the vote would nut I be taken until the next day, as he wished to cxj prees his views in reference thereto. Mr. Allen I 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 ot 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. Slide 11, by the government, while on his mission to Mexico, diring which Mr. Root, of Ohio, took occasion to make a political speech, and pledged the vote of his State to the friends of the Wilmot proviso. The affair was disposed of by Mr. McKay moving iib iciereuce iu me v^ommmee on .foreign iteialations. The other question, was a bill offered by Mr. Morehead, of Kentucky, for an abatement, or reduction, of the payment of revenue duties; which was ably defended by Mr. McKay, ol 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 adjourcment was moved and carried, beforo final action wm 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 from New Hampshire, and a variety ot despatches from other places?all of which will mark the enterprise of this department of the ; Neu> York Herald. THB CALL Or OONCfrllHSS. THE INSTRUCTIONS TO MR, SLIDELL. &.C., &c., &c. Washington, March 15, IS48 As there appears to be some desire to see the instructions to the Hon. John Siidell, ihe Minister to Mexico previous to the declaration of \Var. I have taken upon myself the liberty of transmiting to you a syllabus of them In i-nincniipnci' of n Kir nn> government from Mr. John Hlack, the United States Consul at the City of Mexico, dated Sept. 17, 18-15, stating that the Mexican government had at length stgnfied its willingness to treat for the settlement of difliculties between the two government?, Mr. Uuchanun, on the 20th of November, despatched the folio wing instructions to Mr. John Slidell, then at New Orleans, coinmissioned as Minister Plenipotentiary to Mexico. Alter repeating to Mr. Slidell the objects of the mission, which were to counteract the desigus of foreign powers against the interests of the United States, and to restore friendly and peaceful relations previously existing between the two countries, trie instructions declare that the true interests of the American republic require the pursuit of a uniform American policy, different trom that of European governments; that the balance of power doctrine cannot be tolerated on this continent; and that no interference, even in the shape of mediation, for the adjustment of difficulties between tnia country and Mexico will be allowed. The attention of the minister is then directed to the claims of our citizens against Mexico, which he is instructed to urge strenuously, and to the many acts of this government declaratory of their validity. Those claims and the acts of injustice of Mexico, are enumerated. The case is argued clearly and poweriully, and the right is demonstrated to be on the side of tins government. It is then remarked that those claims could not then be extinguished by the Mexican government by the payment of money, and that as the joint resolution for annexing Texas authorised the adjustment of all questions of boundary, this government would be willing to uHsiune ttie debts of Mexico due our citizens, in consideration of the extension of the boundary of tlic United States. The llio Grande is the true boundary of Tex*s, and Mr. Buchanan goes on to prove this position from the history of this country and ol Mexico, and informs Mr. Slidell that me independence of Tex ts 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 subject for negotiation For the whole of New Mexico and the boundary of the 1Lto Grande, Mr. Slidell was authorised to oiler to iirsuine paymt-nt ol me debts due our citizens, and, in addition, to pay Mexico five millions of dollars for the boundary of tlie Rio Grande from its moutli to the source. To assume the payment of the claims of our citizens, Mr. 8. was instructed to obtain California, i| possible, and for the line running from the southern extremity of New Mexico to the Pacific, so us to includc Srn Francisco, he whb authorized to oiler iwmty millions ; lor the line embracing Monterey, twenty-live millions. At this, he was instruc rd to inquire int? the alleged dcliuquenot Eiinllio Vo?s. New Hampshire K.Uctlon, Bonto.v, March 15 ?A M. fjo?K?non- 1H48. nOTKMNoa?1647.

Modern Dramatic Literature ?Some of tht newspapers have brcn speaking highly ia praise ot a new drama, by Bome strange author, founded upon some old colonial character, who happened to distinguish himself somewhere in Maiden lane, during the Inst century, or the century before the last. It appeurs that Mr. Murdoch, the actor, possesses this tragedy, and complains bitterly because, as he says, the theatres here refuse to bring it out lor him. He has, therefore, gone to Philadelphia, in the hopes of obtaining better success there. We have no 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 ol their own, have distuiguiahed themselves, in some period of their history, by the development of dramatic genius. The Greeks, the Romans, the French, the English, the Italians, the Germans, the Spanish, have all had their own dramatic literature, and have completely exhausted the subj"Ct. The classical dramatic literature of the English race, in the English language, is ended; and anything new must be merely on imitation of the old. Shekspeare 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, Icily and nonsense to get up new plays, which can be nothing else but rehashes?a mere re-cooking, or refacciamtntos. 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 munii." , Railroad Freight to Eternity?We heard i inany enquiries made by simple honest people, I pending the transport of the deceased John I Quincy Adams through our city, as to who he was, and where he came from, and what lie 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 i which " beats all creation." It seems, accord' ing to the Tribune, that the body of Mr. Adains , was shipped as freight, on board the railroad cars of the Hartford and New Ilaven Railroad , company, and that freight wa3 charged and paid I tor, upon the dead body ! 1 What u lecture on human greatness and | glory ! Steamer Southerner, C-tptain Kerry, arrived yesterday morning, at an early hour, with accounts from Charleston up to Sunday morning. She was detaiaed until about 11 o'clock Sunday, on the bar, owing to the shallow state of the water.
