Farther accounts seein to strengthen the impression that the recent treaty with Mexico will be defeated by the government of that country, and that no treaty will ever receive the sanction of the Mexican representatives. The causes of this result may be various. It is well known that the treaty was framed under the auspices of certain English bankers in Mexico. The provisions of the treaty in which they were interested, were expunged by the Senate, at Washington; and hence exercises an influence in procuring its confirmation. Mr. Trist, also, was ordered home in disgrace, and the recent court marti:tl in Mexico may produce a conviction in the mind of that government, that the government at Washington disapproves of the conduct of the generals and the negotiators who made the treaty, and rely on the trial of the annexation of all Mexico. Whatever he the cause of the defeat of the treaty, it becomes more than probable we shall have none at all. In such case, what is to be done in Mexico] Will Mr. Polk cause the American army to evacuate that country, or will he await for any further developeinent of the future] The question will soon have to be decided either way. Great and National Revolution in this Country.?Whatever may be the final result of the present political revolution in Europe, or whatever may be the new modifications of society, both of the aris' tocracy and democracy in that region of the world, ihere is one result which is as certain as the light of day from the sun, aud that is, the destruction of all the existing financial and commercial systems and establishments of the old world, and of all connected with them elsewhere. The public debts of the governments of Europe; the existing system of banking in Europe and America; the great banking houses and large commercial establishments there, have all grown up together, during the last two centuries. The public debts and public securities of Europe have depended entirely upon quietness and peace, which permitted the revenue to be collected and poured into the coffers of the government. The revolutionary state of the world destroys now all the springs and sources of revenue, and consequently the public securities of all of them must go by the board?of England as well as of the others. It may h? n v#?nr nr twn K<?fnrp tKit r^anlf falrpu n1n/*P* hilt of the certainty of this result no man can entertain a doubt. All the commercial and financial systems connected with the great debt of England, will go to rnin; and as the revolution in politics progreases, so that in finance will follow. From this prospect in view, the merchants, bankers, traders, and others in the United States, ought to make their arrangements to change whatever may be necessary to change in connection with affairs in Europe. All those houses in this country which are involved in the European system o finance, must go by the board, a9 much as wa9 the case in the year 1837. South Carolina?Political Movement.?We mentioned some days ago, that a delegate to the Baltimore convention had been api>ointed at a public meeting at Georgetown, South Carolina, with instructions to oppose the " Wilinot proviso" and all who support it. We now see by the Charleston Mercury that this i? only a partial movement, and that the State of South Carolina did not participate in any such purpose at all. The Calhoun party in that State, it eems, refused to send a delegate at all to the Baltimore convention; but intend to keep aloof, and profit by the feuds and disturbances that take place in that body. No doubt, however, aoine delegates from that State will be at Baltimore; but they will depend altogether on the complexion of affairs at the time. This was the policy which they pursued four years ago. They kept aloof from the convention until they ascertained that Van Buren and General Cass were not to be nnniinntprr nnH then ?'nti>rrrl ?nH nrmmscrt tn sinv. port the I'olk party. The same j>olicy and the aame result will follow the approaching convention; but the chancea are even, looking at the present position of the barnburners of New York?so that the question is as important a one, probably, as the next Presidency itaelf. War jn Europb?The American Navy.?We have often called the attention of Congress and the public to the condition of the American navy, in the present crisis of the world. A European war seems to be almost certain, and that, in fact, within a few months. Such a war would certainly affect the commercial relations of all those countries which are at all connected with J-u rope. No one can turn his eye upon the history of the past, without acknowledging the necessity of a strong naval power, for the protection of the commercial and neutral relations of the United States. During the old European war, springing out of the revolution of 'H9, the commercial interests of the United States were insulted and sacrificed in every possible decree, owing to the want of a sufficient naval force. Now is the time for Congress to make preparations to increase, and modify, and organize the navy in such a manner as to preveni a repetition of such insults u[>on American commerce. Instead of squabbling about personal and political interest*, why do not men of intelligence and capacity occupy their time with more important affairs, and make preparation for that great crisis which is coming upon us from the revolutions going on in the old world ? Ttie Si-nscnniKiis to thk i.atk Italian Ophha.? Why do not the subscribers to the late 11 a 1 i n <>pera call a meeting, and make arrangements for ftome proceedings by which to ascertain l?y whose fault and folly the Opera has been sus|>cnded, in the way it has heen done, cheating flic subscribers out of a fourth part of the subscriptions paid 1 The impudence with which it has been suspended, in debt to the subscribers, and to almost every newspaper in the city, for advertising, without even attempting to give any sort of explanation, is a piece of swindling and audacity without parallel in the annals of society jn New York.? The establishment started under circumstances of honor and great advantages, with high support and abundant resourced. What has become of all these resources 1 I'nless some explanation is made, some account furnished, and some exposition given to the public, the only alternative is to believe that it was, from beginning to end, nothing but a premeditated swindling experiment. Why do not the subscribers speak out, meet together, and bring the knaves, whoever thuf are, tp an account 1 # ' ' ' ' . ^f^nc^T'Trrctunv" A*B DRAYATIC P&o?Lf^* A great problem in lif.- nod th2 drain i, is now pending before the audience of thi* Bowery Theatre, who, since the revolution in the m magem 'lit th it took place there, have become quite critical, and almojt the b?st p!iiloaophera in this city in th it line of art. A new pi ty on a a?*v subiect, by i i*>v i u.ior, u performing at th1* Bowery. It is written by Mr. ) Cornelius Mathews, who is considered by some as one of the fairest candidates for the fame of the American Shakspeare, as ranked by authors, as any pretender in any description of literature. The play is on an American topic, and the audiences, coming from all classes, will have to decide on this, whether Cornelius Mathews is the descendant of the legitimate Shakspeare or not. Another important question is also before the Bowery audience, and that is, the position of Mr. Murdoch, who is considered by his friends the rivul, if not the superior, of Forrest, and even, in some branches of the drama, of Kcmble himself.? The critics are ranged into two classes?one condemning, and the other supporting Mr. Murdoch? .U?. .K? * * ' ,1... mm theatre, must decide. So far as we have heard of Mr. Murdoch, he haa more taste and finer feeling than Forrest; but he warifs some of the energy and passion, almost " torn to rags," which distinguish the great Edwin, when played in theatrical style. Murdoch, therefore, seems to be a more accomplished actor, but a less energetic tragedian. He may surpass Forrest in some particulars, but he falls still behind him in deepest tragedy. Many still insist that Murdoch is better, more finished, superior, and even more classic, than Forrest, whose style of acting, at the best, is only of the tomahawk school of the Indian race. Let the discriminating audience who now crowd the Bowery, determine this important question. The West Indies.?A highly important crisis is impending over all the West India islands, but more particularly over those possessions which belong to the English, the French, and the .Spaniards. The interests of the British West Indies have been long since sacrificed, in order to gratify their rival of Ilindostan. This interest, centered in London, combined with the action of the fanatics in England, has destoyed the property of those islands. The new French republic now bids fair, by some intimations and decrees made, to bring about the same state of things in the islands making part of the colony there. In the French West India islands, no doubt, the slaves will soon be liberated and set free bv decrees to that effect, to be issued by the approaching National Assembly at Paris. Such a political colonial movement will soon reach Spain. It cannot be expected that the .Spanish peninsula will escape the great revolution which is now agitating all Europe alike. A revolution in Spain will first affect Cuba, and afterwards the other Spanish West Indies, where the slaves will be set free, and the destruction of all slave property follow. It appears there is no escape for Cuba and the French West India islands, unless they determine to take care of themselves. What will Cuba do ? What will be her policy 1 How will she be able to avert the threatening tempest, and the ruin which impends over all her interests T It is for Cuba herself to think and reflect well upon her course. That she will do so is almost certain. Taylor Meeting at Lafayette Hall.?a meeting was held last evening at Lafayette Hall, by a portion of the friends of General Taylor, for the purpose of celebrating the victory gained at the Rio Grande, at the commencement of the Mexican war. A report of this meeting will be found in our columns. It ought to be observed, however, that the meeting was called together by a club of the old Wall street whigs, who have associated themselves for the purpose of assuming the direction of the Taylor men in New York. In fact ' however, they only form a cliquc of the friends of General Taylor, and they enjoy no more influence and importance to make him President, than any other friends of a President who can light a hall, pay the expenses of the oil and gas, and engage a place to make speeches. The leaders of these cliqxut are merely the old broken down politicians of both the old parties, whigs and democrats, and their influence in any administration that may spring from General Taylor's elevation, ought not to be greater than any other clique. In this city we have a dozen rliqxu$, and the reason is, the effect of v ipuerai J ayior s popularity givt-s mnu i-ui-numgrment that he will be elected. M. Leon Favre, the newly appointed French consul general at New York, was a great commtrfant of Paris, possessing a great knowledge of everything relative to trade. lie is a brother of M. Leon Favre, who was celebrated in Lvona as an attorney, and who is now Secretary of the Ministry of Interior of Paris. From the Soith.?The Southerner, steamer, from Charleston, yesterday brought us papers from all the southern cities, one day ahead of the mail. To Captain Berry we have again to offer our acknowledgments for favors. L?ti:r from Brazil*.?An arrival at Baltimore has put us in possession of file* of the Rio Janeiro paper Corrrio Mrrcantil, up to the '20th March. We perceive that Mr. (iallutin's pamphlet on the subject of peacr with Mexico, in translated aud published in the Correio without comment!. The new Peruvian war steamer Rimac. Capt. Riestra. built In this city, arrived at Rio on the 24th of March, jn a parage of 51 day*. The steamer Todos on Santos arrived at Rio on the 24th March, bringing dates from Rio Grande to the 14th At that time the southern province* of Brazil were all in perfect quiet. The Provincial Assembly was installed on the 4tli. Later from Montevideo. ? Files of the Comcrcio del Plata to the 11th March, have been received at this office. Several numbers of the Britith Packct, published at Buenos Ayres, have come to hand. The U. S. frigate Brandywine was at Montevideo on the 14th of March. The brig Perry, Lieut. Tilton, was at Buenos Ayres on (lie 11th. They were expecting Baron (Jros from France, a special Minister to the Rosas government, and he and the Hon. Cnpt. Gore, from the PJn^lish government, who had arrived as far as Hio Janeiro, it was supposed, would enter into a new series of negotiations with Rosas. We suspect, however, that they will hnve been disappointed in any calculations made 011 the French Minister, as in the present changed condition of France, that government has other things to attend to besides diplomatizing in South America. Dittos Amu, March 11. 1948 On the 8tli inst., 11 fleet of eleven vemels, ten of which were bound to Kuropean ports. and one. the Mason Barney, to New York, made a rush from the Inner roads <?f this port, with most favorable prospects, having a durk night and fair wind.

Considerable time intervened before the appointed officers took their seats upou the stag* and the ceremonies of the occasion were performed in the following order: " THE WAVING BANNER." [Hymn by the Children ] Now we raise our tuneful voice* In a new melodious song. While each youthful heart rejoices. To behold the gathering throng. Chobi**.?

Thanks to God for every blessing Which his bounteous band bestows; All on earth that's worth possessing. From that hand incessant flows. Chorus.?As we lift, he. A prayer was then offered by the Rev. Mr. Lord, of Harlem?after which, the children sung their second hymn, accompanied by the band. The music of this piece was given with a will by the thousands of young warblers. It was as follows:? With joyful hearts we sing The praises of our Saviour King, And high our voices raise; We bless the Lord that we were born. In school to meet each Sabbath morn, To chaunt our youthful lays. Another year has rolled around. And iu sweet union here we're found; To Ood the glory give. For all the means that he hath given. That we may learn the way to heaven, And with Him ever live. To Sunday school wo lovo to go. And while we dwell on earth below, Our Sunday school we'll bless. Dear teachers, too, we love them well, For they of heavenly tidings tell, And endless happiness. For us our Saviour shed his blood; He feeds our souls with heavenly food; He gives us life and breath. He sends his Spirit from above. To draw us with his cords of love. And save our souls from death. Our Heavenly Father we adore; His gracious presence we implore Upon our youthful band. Oh! that his word may make us wise And lead to bliss beyond the skies. To dwell at his right hand.'' Mr. Edwards, of Kngland. was then introduced to the children by Dr. Ferris, the president of the society. Mr. E. addressed the children in a speech of about 10 minutes' length. Hi* remarks were very happy and appropriate to the occasion, and were listened to with a irreat deal of attention by the audience. He told the children in a familiar manner about his connexion with the Sunday schools in his own country, and exhorted his young hearer* to cultivate a spirit of unity. .Mr. Touslev. of Canandaigua, next addressed the children. Mr. T. is the agent of the S. S. Union, having hi* field of labor in the we*torn part of New Vork. He showed in his remarks that he was used to children. He related pleasing anecdotes, carrying with them appropriate morals ; hut. notwithstanding the manner of the speaker was agreeable, the little folk* had begun to grow uneasy, and a general buiz began throughout the house, low at fir*t. but gradually increasing, until it became unite too loud to allow a hearing of the remarks of Mr. T.. who alluded goodnaturedly to the circumstauce. and concluded hU remarks. The next was the children's part to perform, which they did by tinging the following hymn, composed for them, the word* .by Her. Oeo. W. Uethune. D.D . and the music by Oeo. F. Hoot. It wa* entitled COME, LET t'S SI NO TO JEM'S. Come, let us sing to Jesus. While hearts and acccnts blendCome. let us sing of Jesus, The sinners' only friend. Hi* holy soul rejoices Amid the choirs above. To hear our youthfnl voice* Exulting in his love. Wo love to sing of Jesus. Who wept our path along ; We love to sing of Jesus, The tempted and the strong ; None who besought his healing. " He passed unheeded by ; And still retains his feeling For us above the sky. Wg love to sing of Jesus, Who died our souls to save ; We love to sing of Jesu*. Triumphant o'er the grave ; And In our hour of danger We'll trust his love alone, Who once slept in a manger, And now sit* on the throne Then let u* sing of Jesu*. While yet on earth we stay. And hope to sing of Jesus Throughout eternal day ; For those who here confess him. He will in heaven confess ; And faithful hearts that bless him, He will for ever bless. The benediction was pronounced by the Kev Mr. Johnson, of Jersey city, and the exercise* were closed. While the children were sealed in the garden, refreshments. iii the shape of cake*, were distributed amongst them, and it should be said, to their credit, that they diirinir thin limo n. <l#?rnrum that, in wnrthv of emulation by assemblage* of grown up children. When all wa* done. the xchools marched out in tb<>MiB<'orderly manner that ? ? observed by theui in entering the plaee of assembling. All wax good nature and orderly hilarity to the eud. aud a* the youthful bands marched through the street* on their return they were viewed with admiration by the occupant* of the houses and the pedestrians iu the street* through which they passed. It wa* observed that the beaux looked with especial interest upon the effort* made by the female teacher* to fulfil their arduoux duties And u their cheeks glowed and their eyvx sparkled in their anxiety to fulfil their trust, it wax cvidant that many a passing buck was inmost persuaded to take to Sunday school teaching in order that he might have such fellow laborers. Kveuing exercises of the society were held In Dr. Cone'* Church, Broome street. Rev [)r. Kerri*. presiding. Addresses were delivered by Rev. Dr. Bethune. of Philadelphia; Rev. Mr Kvcrtx of the Baptist Church In thi* city, and L. B. Touxley, of Canandaigua. Mr. Havens, the corresponding secretary. read an abstract of the yearly report; but in consequence of the absence of the Treasurer, the statement of the financial atTairx of the nocicty was not made known. Mr. Havens stated, in brief, that the incidental expenses of the society for the past year, bad been 2.070. ieav inn it in debt about >70.

Rev. Mr. Piivmcr, formerly governor of Liberia, taid 1 that ho i* au old veteran in the cau*e of colonisation It U more than fifteen year* vince he couslderod himself a youth. Some time ago he wa* drawn wlthiu the Influence of the Colonisation Society, aud it Uto that providence that he owe* hi* appearauce before thi* meeting. He apprehended that few were acoualutcd with the rise and progress of thi* lociety. and be wa* *ure that a careful examination of it* principle* would ahow that no benevolent society in the country wa* entitled to more consideration. The *pcaker then traced the history and proceeding* of the society from its inception to tho present time, fhoma* Jefferson wa* the first to advocate the principle of colonisation, and urged that as we had successfully resisted the tyranny of Orcat Britain, we should extend freedom to the slave; and the legislature of his State. Virginia, unanimously called uuon the ('resident of tho Unitedi States to give hi* atteutlon to the subject. In conaequeuco. however, of the war* growing out of the French revolution, nothing could be done at that time. Finally, however, the project wa* revived, and in 1816. Dr. Finlay. of New Jersey, with a few other individual* met in Washington, for the purpose of devising a colonial system on tiie coast of Africa. On the fir*t of January. 1817, these persons organized, but the great difficulty was. could territory in Africa bp obtained for thin purpose ' Samuel J. Mil In went ah a pioneer, to (^certain whether such territory could bp procured, and ascertained that it could, but before he reached hit native land again, he died. The great object of the speaker in dilating on the incipiency of thin society, win to do uwuy with the impression which some person* hare formed, that it was designed to fasten the fetter* of the slave. Rpt. Dr. Bktiicive said he had great pleasure in meeting with the friends of colonization; but as he had already addressed one meeting, and was onJils way to address another, ho would be obliged to speak in the style of a parenthesis. Time he said, had changed the impressions which were formed of this society at the time when it was formed, and many of those who were most violent in denouncing it. are now to be found umong societies which seek to trample the holy Sabbath under foot, and which are the enemies of the glorious constitution of the United States. lie has heard that within twenty-four hours the exodus of the slave was over the ruins of the constitution of the United Sfates. Now. against such people as those, who proposed this resolution this society had to contend. Let the eyo be cast around and see the mighty * changes going q on in Kurope. But for his part, ho looked with more interest on the republic of Liberia, which is the only blace republic that had ever been established in the world. They loarned the principles of liberty In the.Unlted States; their foundation is cemented by the prayers of the American church, and he would not ?ay but that every despotic natiou in Kurope will perish before Liberia. Ho desired to define his position on this matter. He is a friend of the Colonixation Society, and a friend of the slave; but (Jod forbid that he should ever infringe the provisions of our glorious constitution What language has been addressed to us from different quarters? The child of the North who is taught to believe that labor, under Ood, is the prico of true liberty, has been told there is a subject on which he must not speak, and that Is liberty. Again we have been told that slavery is the foundation of liberty. He would not assent to thii proposition. There is an extremity in the Southern doctrine which he cannot subruitj to. Dr Ucthuuc then drew favorable pictures of Liberia, and the prospects which it offered|to the negro of the United States, without infringing upon the constitution ot the United States, or incurring the danger of promoting sedition or insurrection. American Anti-Slavery Society. This society celebrated its anniversary at the Taboruaclc yesterday morning, at 10 o'clock.

The annual report was then rend, from which we learn that there remains in the treasury of the society two dollars and fifty-ulne cents, cash. The meaning of the above-mentioned petition was explained; it is a memorial from the women of Scotland to thoae of America, on the subject of slavery. Thkodoxe P*a*r.a. of Boston, was the flrst speaker. After a few prefatory remarks, he said the institution of slavery was a contradiction to the constitution of the United States, to the declaration of independence, to tha precepts of Scripture, and to the instinct of human nature itself, which calls on inau to defend himself, and those depending on lilm. with any woapon which he can lay his hands upon This institution is our greatest sin. which more than all others retards the progress of the country. Between the slaveholders and the opumers of the institution, there is a struggle; and notwithstanding the slave holders have law'on their side, the Union will be In danger until it shall be put down. Some excuse may be made for the despots of Europe They have no charter that all men are created free. Yet we are told that we of the North have no business with the question of slavery, when the lives of our Senators are threatened In the Capitol?when the( apitol Itself is the slave mart of the country, where the holders of the slave rule the North But we have taken It up. and will not give it up till every vestige of It is swept from tha western world It is said that slavery is the key stone of liberty.

He contended that Congress had tho power to make this proviso the law of the land, and to exclude slavery from being permitted in new territory, if it be not already excluded there; for accordiug to the com mon law of Kngland, and the abolition of slavery by Mexico, slavery cannot exist there. He reviewed the argument* In lavor of the institution of slavery, and the efforts of the South to extend it in the Mexican territory; allot" which be spoke against at length; aud concluded by hopiug that no one would vote in favor of a candidate who is not in favor of the Wilinot proviso. Dr. F. B. Dtortn. from Paris, next spoke in a broken manner against slavery, which, he said, is against human nature, aud require* laws contrary to human nature to sustain it. He referred to the condition of the slave, who produces all. and possesses none; and it is that which produced civil war in Home, aud other ancient lands. Our reporter was unable to catch the thread of the remainder of this gentleman's discourse. Hon. John P. Hale was introduced to the audience, and as soon as he ascended the platform he was greeted with the loudest applause, which, he said, was likely to embarrass him. so unaccustomed was he to receive a response to the sentiments he is in the habit of expressing in regard to slavery. He enquired where is the seat of government In the United States ? He never found it yet.

In allusion to the transactions'of the present day. he said he was convinced they stamp the nation as barbarous, and in this conviction he would remain us long as he lived, or until that catastrophe with which ho has been threatened. shall reach him. The war iu which we are now engaged was commenced for the purpose of extending slavery, and tho crisis is approaching in which states and nations will engage in a coutest of no common kind. Where will his auditors bo in this contest ? Will they bo on the side which our fathers took, or will they be on the side of slavery? Iu conclusion, he appealed to the Church to purge herself of the leaven of oppression, and if she would do so, it would not be left to such a poor politician as he is, to argue this question. But as long as she do not do so, it is iu vain to coutond against slavery, as long as it >1 uds a sanctuary in the Church. American Female Moral Reform and Uuai* dlan Soclcty. The fourteenth anniversary of this society was celebrated last eveniug at tho Buptist church in Stanton street. The exercises ou the occasiou were opened with prayer by the Kev. Mr. Brown, of Troy, who alluded to the gratifying c'rcumstauce that after making constant efforts for the last few years, they had succeeded in procuring the enactment of a law by the Legislature for the punishment of ubduction and seductlou. The treasurer s report was next read; but t coutaiued but few items of interest. S. B. llalliday next read au interesting abstract of the annual report. A letter from the Rev. Dr. Osgood, of Springfield, who was to have addressed the members and frienda of the Society, stating his inability to be present on this occasiou. in consequence of baring boen summoned to api>ear as a witness in ono of the courts at Boston, was then read ; at the conclusion of which tho Kev. Win W. Patten, of Hartford, Conn., rose and delivered an able and eloquont address. In which he alluded to the various difficulties which the Society had experienced in carrying out their wishes, during the few years which it had boen iu existenco ; he also spoke of the unwearied efforts which the Sooiety bad made in inducing the Legislature to pass an act making scduotion a criminal offence. He also pictured to the inlnd the effects of poverty on female virtue, and the want of charity generally towarda those who. whilo starvation was staring them in the faee. had become victims of seducers; and the Importance to the community at large to have asylums where such females as were driven to a stato of destitution mid ready for the suare of vllllans, could find a home. Mm- ItTMWi speaker, in tho course of his remarks, alluded to the works of Eugene Sue, as having afforded liiui a fund of information relative to tho existing tate of things amongst the down trodden masses of human beings, and especially the character of the temptations to which destitute females are subject. A n appropjiate hvmn, composed for the occasion, was then sung by the choir and congregation. The Kev. Mr. SrswcKii, from Westmoreland, next addressed the meeting, relative to the objects of the society. and the good which had already been, and would still be done, by carrying out the views for which It was organised.

Dr. R. wan evidently in favor of labor, yet preferred a library, as a means of contentment to the patient*, rather than the dangerous results likely to ensue from the possession of implement*. which in any paroxism might be applied to the propensity of each individual. Dr. Karl, of the Blooiuingdalc Asylum, differed from the theory of I.auric, who. to produce subjection, used in tho flnt Instance the shower bath, and In ca*e* of conflrmod obstinacy the douce Dr. Klrkbrldge. of Philadelphia, in hi* practice, avoided coercion entirely.
