'j'be cavalry brigade were aa clean aa now pint, and aa gay as peacocks in full feather. The light b?iterl?a preambled, in their order and discipline, a faithful portrait of " grlm-vicogei war," announcing in roverb?rating tonra the arrival of a mesaonger of peace. Tba Keiillfblin. ?nl>) Ifur.fnnbH *11 ....... .C their officers presented bit sword in salute, I could not help thinking cf bis conduct at <_ erro Oordo, while under a destructive lire, rallying bis command, calling ou^ to them ' Men, do your duty! Hemem'.fr 'Old Ksntuok!'" They really deserve great credit for tb" superior state of disoipllne to which tbey htvo already anivod in the short tim . they havo been in the service. Mr. Clifford, after arriving at his quarters, and the military h?ing dismissed, went with Gen. Butler to b!s quarters, accompanied by a Urge number of offl c?rs, nppareutly much gratified at the brilliant reception be received on his en if to tho "Halls cf the Monte2'iajs'1;" but at th* same time preserving that equanimity of feeliog and expression of counteaanoo indicative of a high u>ned gentleman, and one knowing and propeily extimaticg bis ewn abilities and position. The military commission for the trial of the persons ecgnged in the late burglary and murder in this city, In which two i'ffl.:ein of the -Jd Pennsylvania volunteers, Lleuts Hare and Mattisoo, are Implicated, commenoed its investigation yesterday. They had a meeting day boforj yofti.rday, and the day before, but did not precmd to business, on account of the ofib-er being abient who was detailed as J u.l^e Advooate. The following are the officers composing the court, as at present fully organised Col. M. V. Thompson, 31 regiment Kertuaky volunteers; Col. J W. Geaiy, 3d Pennsylvania voluntcerr; l.:eot. Col. J. W. Whiitteld, 34 Tennessee volunteers; Lieut Cel. A. II Gladden, Sou'b Carolina volunteers; Lieut. Cel. J C. Burnbim, New York volunteers; Mejor It ? 1st regiment Pennsylvania volunteers: Mojor W. 1'. Ward,4th regiment Ktuiucky volunteers. The ease is on- of a very aggravated nature, and you will reo that the Court organized for this special Investigation is not only composed of rank, but persons of sound d'tcretion, judgment, and intelligence. I will report the proceedings in detail, and you will be regularly furnished with them Whatever maybe the result of tho trial, justice will be religltusly and striotly dealt out, and it the soused should be found guilty, they will have to undergo the sentence without regard to rank or position ; if they, or any portion of them, should be louna iunxceut, as a matter of oours* they will be restored to their former r*nk and position. There is a Kieat deal cf iadiputtion in the army, tut every person is anxious to Fee a fair, impartial investigation. Ta4*diy m^ralog wsiiad a current report of the atsa?elvn'.lon o thieo tiffin >n bv nfime rnhlian mitaida .!?? gates of the pity, but a thorough investigation proved it 10 be a humbug On Snaday i?ight there was a great alarm created in the olty by a hsavy lira of musketry in the eubarbs of tho city. It appears that a party of Mexican robbers occasionally enter the suburbs of that part of tbe oi'y fjr the purpuss of plunder ; end on this evening th.-y came in in foroe of 1A0-meeting a patrole of Ihs pol^o- ?u*rJ thi>y fired on them ?the sorgeaut in command of rho p*trole (six men) was driven baok some throe (quire* until he got goad cover in n boues, and n*T>t to his rffloor for roiuforsemeuta. The officer fiodmg tho rotten in too great a foroe for him, Asked a.#'st?DCft from tine of the Kentucky regiments, olosa by, who turned out fourcotnp?ql?a. As the guard and approached, the robbers fired on them, two bails taklnat eff?et on the marines ; but the distance was ro great that thev only produced a slight oontuiion. As uoon as the officer of the guard got near enough, he di rortH six men to fire. The Kentuckians misapprehendin; the order, fired three or four volleys, hloh produced the a'arin la the city. The robbers fled, leaving two of their party dead in the road. We have received letters from Queretaro to the nth Inst There had not yet been a quorum of the Congress ?three Senators and fix Deputies bslng absent, i am folly satisfied. from my letters, that the real oause ct there not baring beon a quorum previous to this is on ec.-ouTit of th?ir not having any official lcformition of the action of the United States Senate on the treaty; however, I learn by my advices this evening from the interior, that the Deputies and Senators from the State of ru*hla will he in Queretaro on Monday next; and those ja?t elected from this State will set out on Monday next. Th's will make a quorum and some to spars, and tn?ri>fore we have every reason to believe that tho neit week will find the Mexican Congress acting on the treaty. So far as regards its fate, and tbe final result upon the Me*isan government, my lettnts in'orm me that but six Deputies ard two Senators are opposed to its ratification; bat, as I stated in my formsr letters mush depends upon the course Mr. Clifford pursues H? has now arrived, snd 1 am In hopss he will immediately l*y hi* doeuments before the Mexican government without talk or negotiation. I am oxce?dlogly sorry Mr Trist did not remain here longer. II i could have exereis*d a stronaerltflaerico in the ratification thai in) p?i-son the povernment onu'.d send here, nnd oar government o*rteinly made a great mistako In sending him homo a prisoner, at this particular junotnre. The news received a few days since will no doubt have some effect on tbn action of tho Mexioan Congress It will destroy all hopes of the Paredes or monarohloal party.

I have frankly avowed my own diafj. | trust of ray lHnesi for that high station; but haying at ,,e the aolioita'.ion of many of my countrymen, taken my ,.t po.iltiou.aa u candidate, I do not feel at libarty to aurrenderthut position until my frienda manifest a wlah that I should retire from it 1 will then moat gladly do ao. 1 [?* have no puvato purposes in acoompish, no pirty pro{* j Mta to build up, no enemies to puatah?nothing to aerva but my country. ?'j 1 have b< en very often addressed by letter, and my Jij opiuioos have been Baked upon almost every queation 3 thut might occur to the wrltera as atfeoting the lntereata TC tf their country or their party. 1 have not ulwaya re?> sponded to these inquiries, for various reasons. 5|| I confess, whilst I have great cardinal principles which 3h wi'l regulate lay political life, 1 am not auftlciently la*6 miliar with all the minute details of political legislation to Rive solemn pledges to exert njr*, if I were President, to carry out thia or defeat that ueaaure 1 10 have no conoeMaioiit.

Tho personal opinions of the individual whe :u" may happen to occupy tho Kxscutive chair, ought not , to control the action of Congress upon questions of do do mrgtls Fclicy ; nor ought his objections to be interposed 10 Vhere qaestiona of constitutional power have been settl?J by the various departments of government, and acquiesced in by tbe people. f Third?Upoa the subjoot of ths tariff, the ourrescy, c' the improvement of our great hlghwaj a, rivers, lakes, 1 * an I harbors, the will of tho people, os expreaaed through I'1' their representative in Congress, ought to bo rospeotad lr and carried out by the Kxecutive.

Voa have probably seen, ere thi* time, the manifesto at firth hjr the whig members of the Maasaohusetta .eglslature, In which Daniel Webfter is strongly reloirnj'ni'ed an the beat possible candidate that the ?hlgs la thi nation can seleot for the honor of belog lefjatel by the demooraoy next full?for that la pretty uuch all that a whig nomination has ever yet amounted o, or that it ever can amount to, in the nature of things, rhe whig* of the leglala'.ure are men of fair average intelligence; and, therefore, do not believe, nor expeot itheri to b?llove, the silly statement they have at leaat indoried. If they have not made It themeelvea, In juat ao nony wordii, namely,that Mr. Webater can be alaetad. I'he proceeding waa one of a series of blows aimed at lenry Clay, and Intended to put an end to the election if that gentleman, under which It ia feared tha whig arty niuit remain in tha dreary shades < f oppoaitlon ro break down Mr. Clay, and to get pomeseion of the nalonal government by running aoma " available" sol Iter, has lon? been the favorite plan of the conservative nrtion of tho M%aeachuacitta whig party. Thev know .hat under the reign of acme aucb pereon Mr. Webater vonld b- tho rrnl ruler, and that an tmmenae amount of ipoils would be at th?lr command, with which to work it once upon the vanity of the itch and the neceuitlea if ihe poor. Mr. Webster cannot be Prealdont, under any oondilion of'*, ahort of the miraculous; and upon miraolee he hag llttio reliance, nnd hieaupportera and followers have nu more. But they know that be oan ba Secretary of State, if they elect a proper kind of oandldate for the Presidency, and auoceed in electing him Henoe tha pertinacity with which they Insist upon the nomination }f their leader. They are demanding the first plaoe for ilm, in tha hope of getting the eeoond, believing that ;he gr*at whiga will all award to him the came merit ;aat the Oreolan ohlefi saw in Thornlitoclea. after tha lefeat of tho Persians, when each thought himself en;ltled to the first plaoo, but gave tha aaoond to tho illustrious Athenian. They may meet with auccoss in thia jold movement, or rather they might, if there were any | shance of tho blundering and stupid party to whioh they tielong carrying tha nation. There are several things tvhich make in their favor, and whioh will enable them to carry thoir heads with a :;ood degree of highness The feeljcg which exists throughout the north against k slajoholdlug candidate, increases in strength In thla region with each auoeeedirg d.y, and the friends of Hr. Webiter oauae It to tell in his faver. Though not an kbolitlonist, he is no Mend of slavery?and then, he is a vhlg, and a northern whig, ot the straltest sect. Thla aat faot keeps the 'conscience" whigs in line, and prevents a rupture at heme?for tm long as Mr. Webster ia bold up as a oandldate tor the Presidency, no northern whig can make tha presidential nomination the ground for aavering his ronneotion with bis political friends, and do the subjoot, it wilt bo quite too late to nuke a split in the whig ranks here. Finally, there aro ardent and unwiflOvWlf MlMMHM W(llM whigs, vbo believe that by playing a bold game and daring everything, their favorite may get the nomination, and that he will run as wnll as any other man who is not the centre of some millions of radii of military glory. They go for audacity," well knowing that the great mass of mankind aro always Intimidated by the display of dashing luallties. and are reaJy, as the oannle Hoot raid he was, to take th? name side with the hangman. They believe, with M. VUlematn, that "nne des causes qui font que Jays uas involution )e parti Is plus violent grossit et pit-Jomlne, o'est qu'll a tons les lirhez pour rsorurs."? (I. e one of the causes which occasion that the moat violent pirty in a revolution increases and predominates, Is, that it kas all the oowards for recruits)?and there aro oowards not a few in the whig Tanks; and the mora ardent of the Websterites believe that it is time to have a revolution in thoir party, and to set about erecting barricades against the spread of ('lavism. The letter whioh wai written by Henry Wilson, one of our" oonaclence'' whigs, to the editor of the New York TrUunt, expresses the opinion of vory many of the writsi'j political brethern. The letter itself was nothing ?or rather it was simply contemptible, and the dt Astir en bat tone in which tue " .Vatick Cobbler'' spoke of Ueneral Taylor, reminded me strongly of Lord Kldon's ipplicotlon of the word "this fellow" to Napoleon, when 3onsiderJo|r la what light be should be held by the Kugllth government, when he had given himself up to It; jut it may bu lid I as useful, just as a rusty weather:ock Is useful in telling the direction of the wind. Mr. Wilson speaks in the name of the abolition whlgs, and 1 )o vert'y believe that the bclk of tbeoi wcuid go fbt sven Levi Woodbury rather than far General Taylor. Some of the principal whig presses in this elty, have all but said that they prefer a nothern democrat to a nothern whiff; and thn Boston Courier has unequivocally d'.o'.arcd that it will not support General Taylor, evsn If he should be nominated by the Philadelphia convention. Had Silas Wright lived (he would have received the support of thousands of Nsw Kngland whig* for tha I'recldeucy, if he bad wished it.

At the same time, the Germanic Diet has issued a provisional standard representation, aoeording to which Prussia is to send to the Germanic national representation 113 representatives fer tho provinces now appertaining to the Germanie Confederation. As it is Indispensab'y necessary that the (aid assembly jf German national representatives whieh, according to he above decision, will take place as soon as possible, ihouid not meot tegether without participation of Prusilan representatives, and slnoe It baa already been agreed ipon by several (German States that the sepresentatlves rho are to be delegated to the German national assemily shall be eleoted by the existing Chambers of tho itates, we hereby call upon our faithful delegates, nodes, burjhers and land owners of our provinces apperalniog to the (Germanic Confederation,forthwith to sleot 13 representatives for the meeting of the said German mtlonal assembly.
