And In almost every circle or ' grade of society, we hear the same subjeot warmly die' 1 ousted. As a tax payer ef the elty ef New York, 1 beg leave to offer my humble opinion respecting this im?' portent matter, and 1 beg you thoroughly to weigh < 1 these remarks in your mind before you condemn the | proposition which I wish you to make public, and susd tain by your own able argument, If you approve Its Intent. or at any rate publish It for puoiiu discussion. >7 To reduce tne taxes of New York to an amount thai r7 would be sensibly felt by those who have to sustain tbi ' *" harden.

Because New York Is a young olty, the pepu x" laiion ana trade of which has suddenly increased be yond her condition for the accommodation required and alihoughthis admitted fact may, to soma min is argue that such an Increased prosperity should produci " eildently a decreased ratio of taxation, it is the re verse. It Is the olty of New York, by virtue nf Ita cot poration, which has to givetbo lacillties for con-luctloi ' this Test commercial enterprise New whartes am piers must be built; old ones must be isbuil 10 ' or repaired, to accommodate the many sbip' 18 that have been within a short time added to oui n commercial navy; specs between the wharves must be occasionally oleaied of the material whict r" Is deposited there by the tides; at a great expense ? otherwise, vessels cannot float in them, and ths n 1 wharves become useless ; the streets through wbioh V these cargoes are sonveyedon certs, are, by ths inceslc sant travel, torn up, and roust be repaired, or, from 1 loss of time In tbn discbarge of tha cargo, the vessel Is delayed trom leaving the dock, and others prevented e \ by suob delay from occupying ber same ; purpose. Again, thn law makes It compulsory for every ' ship-owner to place on board, under deck sixty gali Ions of water for eaob person, (when the vessel Is bound " to Europe .) but In all cases, from tbe easy manner In 19 which It Is obtained, they carry more than double that t. > quantity, for which they pay so small a sum, that it d may be stated to be provided at the expense of the o airy, (tide Croton water debt) a | Now. sir, with this increase of commerce between J New York and the several ports of Europe, wo have t ; not only extended the facility for the transportation 1 ot merchandise, but we have offered an almost an? limited accommodation for emigration; and tbe more I m-wi-iuiii our <rmrui o?Tt ocoome, mo mors compeia'! in li. *bd consequently lbs small sum required *' by tbs authorities of any town or city in KuJ* top*, to tranrplant their paupers to our ahoraa, ' to be kept at our : pens*.

Much ink has been shed, sod many speeches made on the subject of the Mexican protocol, re- let cently placed before Congress by the President. Gi The secret history of a document that has been the on r thenar of so many pens and tongues, will not be lo unininteresting. We have been cognizant of the to i facts, in part, since the ratification of the treaty, H i and have lately had them placed before us fully, th clearly, and minutely, from authentic sources, S< > and lay them concisely before our readers, as a ' part of the history of the negotiations. e\ I The very hour Messrs. Cliflord and Sevier, our gr incidence was deemed ominous ? the treaty hi passed the Mexican Senate. That night, the so l peuce party celebrated ita passage by fire-works, th i and otner demonstrations of joy. The next day, ca the general in command of the garrison waited on to ' the commissioners, and, playing the host, sat at th 1 the head of the table. Senor Rosas, the Secre- op | tarv ct State, paid several visits during the day, in I ana was protuse in his attentions to the w t commissioners and the officers of their escort, or t Some oi the raost respectable families intiuere- at I tuto resided opposite the American quarters, and te the ladies frequently appeared on the balconies, of giving our manly and accomplished ollicers an re opportunity of admiring their exquisite beauty. su That night it wa? learned that the four thousand pr troops in and about Mexico, were opposed to peace in to a man. The great majority of the population, likewise, manitested their repugnance to amity, on fe the conditions proposed. In tact, if the power and m opinion of all Mexico had been concentrated in te i iuereiarn flmr?> wnnlH lmvi> h*???n m\ truuti/ fltMn L 1 ' We would have had to drub Queretaro out of ita ar ' vanity, as we did the capital. There was no use ta , in pointing out to them that they had been beaten to L in every Held, as an argument that further reus- to tauce was hopeless. They would reply, that they m had been commanded by inefficient officers, pe 1 cowards, and traitors. " Let the ArnTicans come ti1 to Queretaro, and we will show them what we can k? do," would the war-dog add, as he turned on his m heel, and pompously strutted off. This feeling, in fu , ! its full extent, was latent, until the Americans up- gr i i peared. Their presence developed all its strength, pe ; | Pena v Peua, the then Provisional President, in i and his Secretary, Rosas, both warm advocates of to peace, became alarmed. The Becond day the w commanding General failed to present himself in he the quarters of the commissioners. Rosas never Si , visited them but when business required it, and fif then the interviews were short, formal, and cold, ci The beautilul Senoritas, governed by the popular c< feeling, were no Ion er visible. Messrs. Clifford ci and Ssvier observed this coldness. They tinine- tv 1 d lately requested that the treaty be signed. The tv President and his Secretary hesitated. They ai | pleaded that the national seal was in the capital: 01 that they had sent an express for it, and as soon as ai 1 it arrived all would be right. The seal came, but w the Mexicans quibbled and procrastinated until bi i within a few days of the 1st of June, when the c< i | armistice would expire, and then, unless another m | armistice was entered into, hostilities would fo ' I recommence. Messrs. Clifford und Sevier brought gt , these facts to the attention of Pena y Pena pr ; and Rosas, and told them peremptorily that un- m less the treaty was signed the next day they th would Dreoare to HeDart. and instantlv send an ct ' express to (lener&l Butler, at Mexico, for a suffi- tn > cieut escort to protect them to the American ti lines, ami provide for the contingency of the th 1 armistice expiring before they could reach head- gt quarters. This brought the gentlemen to a sense cc of their peril, or ratner the peril of the nation, in Teace or war was to be decided on. They had no pc army, no cannon, no resources. They fully real- j>e ized the faet that a continuation of the war would a be the destruction of the nationality of Mexico, an They at once consented to affix their signatures to in the treaty, on condition the commissioners gave to them something that would shield them from the N lury of the war pirty, in case of an outbreak. They m were asked what tney wanted 1 They explained, at The condition was granted, and the protocol was w given them for a burricaue against their own coun- si trymen, and for no other purpose. It was no part ca of the treaty. It was not understood as such by ct either party, and it is evident the Mexicans do not cc look upon it as qualifying that instrument, from an the fact that it has never been made public by o\ them. The emergency for which it wis obtained tn, did not arise, and it was not used. Years may by have elapsed before it would have fallen under the wi public eye, had not our inquisitive and suspicioua an Congress?very good qualities by the way?drawn es it out. # thSuch is the secret history of the protocol.?JV. <>t Orleans Delta, Feb. 25. up tui Common Pleas V < Before .Judge Ulshoeffer. in Uill'H 7 ?Umial S/ti ii it h tnil vs Hmhert .JitIU1 ?Th!* fill was an action on m promissory not*, made by the firm hi of James Jones ,v Co . far $1 500, nad endorsed by the Co: defendant.

J ' The defence set up was as follows, to wit: That some- Da time In 1847, James Jonea & Co., who were they In the foi African trade, had oocaaion for a large advance of in money, to enable tbem te carry on their business; that cl< they made foar notes, amounting in the aggregate to | about $7,?C0, and procured the defendant to endorse an them; there four notes were given to McViillen, who 7. procured an advance from barrlll of $6,000 on the 5 notes, and paid it over to Jonea Ik Co ; tbree of tbem, amounting to $0.1:26, were paid when they arrived at t'" maturity, and the iourth, whiob was drawn for $1,66S, gn or about that sum, remained unpaid, although it ma- let tured before one or two of those that were taken up; cu Jonea It Co. alleging that they frequently oalled on co McMlllen and Burrlll for an aeoount oa foot of the iQ, notes, and also to k anyhow they were disposed of, and in whose bands they were, which Information was, *v~ as they alleged, invariably withheld; they farther al- 111 leged that, having received only $6,000, and having paid $0,120, the Interest that aocrued on the loan was ee over paid, and deolined to pay the note for $1,603 ? so In Deoember, 1847, James Jones It Ce. had oeoaslon J' for a further loan, made the note In suit, procured It to be endorsed by defendant, and gave it to MoMUIen to raise money en it. MoMUIen gave it to Burrlll; the . latter applied it to th* paj meat ot $ 1.663 and refused to J" advance any money on it, and afterward*, but before J1' It arrived at maturity, passed it to the plaintiff. Upon lb thin Mate of faote, tbe defendant instated tbe plain- at tiff oonld not recover?first, because tbe note in salt ot was an aceommodetion note, for whloh ne consideration was received: secondly, it was net applied to tbe 24 our poses for which it was given; thirdly, tbet tbe orlginal transaction was tainted wltb usury, and that if yi ths note in suit was to be deemed a renewal of the $1,603 note, it must be taken as a part of the original transaction, and also tainted with usury. His Honor bi charged, that tbe note in suit was made by th* firm of m James Jones b Co., in December, 1847, payable to K. Pi Jones, tbe defendant, for 81,600, and endorsed by htm. vi When it fell doe, it was duly protested, and now, to- 0j gather wltb interest, amounts to $1,008 13. You | . are now, said be, called upon to decide whether tb* u plaintiff Is to recover this amount from th* defendant, " or not. Uentlemen, when a pasty appears in a court "f cf Justice with negotiable pieoes of paper in his posses- la 2 slon, be is presumed to be entitled to recover, 1 that Is, be is presumed te bav* advanced bis money pr on it, and tbe presumption her* that be did is for- ta tifisd by tome evidence. A witness has proved that n( > at lb* time tb* not* fell dne, he deposited it in bank. ,u on bebalf or th* plaintiff, and that hs returned [{ ' it to him a day or two before it matured, under- .* standing that there might be some dlflicnlty about it. I only state this as a legal presumption, so far as it 'r f obliges tb* defendant to make out bis defence, and, vt * unless he dees so, plaintiff has a right to reoever. In ai ' this case It Is necessary that tbe defendant makes out Bf ' two points to your satisfaction. First, that tb* not* in iH ; suit was an accommodation note, and that it was mls' applied, or, In other words, that it was banded bv M?.

Colonel Hodge, editor oi toe New Orleans Btdm, was one of the gentlemen who accompanied uneral Tsylor en hie route to Washington. In le of his letters to the Bulletin, he gives the folwing interesting account of the iron manufacnes on the Cumberland river, in Tennessee, is obervations have an important bearing upon e anhnj of our own State, and of the whole jutn. "ThiB is the first time (says Col. Hodge) I have rer ascended the Cumberland, and was rughly atified with its general appearaacs, with the updating appearance of the banks, with alternate gh ground and meadow land. We stopped at uie of the celebrated Tennessee iron woras, on e hanks of this river, where the manufacture is irried through all its stagse, from the crude ore up thw finished bar iron. One of the rolling mills at we have visited was still in lull and extensive leratioa, though the suicidal tariff of 1816 lspressg with great weight upon its prosperity. These orks, however, have one advantage over thoae i the seuboard, in competing with the foreign tide, by the additional cost of freight on the latr up from New Orleans, as they supply the wants the interior, which ihe foreign article can only ach by incurring an additional freight and inirance up the river. This advantage is not much, obably $1 or $5 per ton, hut is still of considerable iportance in a struggle for existence. The more I reflect on the subject, the more I el astonished at the fatuity of any man, or set of en or |>arty, opposing a system of policy caculad to promote and protect establishments of this nd. It appears to me perfectly impossible that ty sne can overlook the great and obvious advances of them, not to those only who are propriars, or otherwise directly interested in them, but the whole country. Here, in Tennessee, anial and vegetable food are produced in such surabundance, that it scarcely gives a remunerate price ; and the want of n sufficient home marit lenders the supply so much greater than the de and, that it is either used in unnecessary prosion or actually wasted. Large quantities of am, particularly corn, are actually allowed to rish in ihe field, and it is no uncommon thing, certain portions of the State, to use fine wheat fatten hogs. It is establishments like these iron orks and other manufactures, that furniBh the >me market for theBe productions ; and could the tale of Tennessee withdraw one fourth or one th, or even one-tenth of her population trom agriiliural pursuits, and employ them in mining >al and iron, and in manufactures, instead of her iltivators of the soil?obtaining, as they now do. ro cents for fine fat beef on the hoof, and renty cents for corn, delivered in Nashville, id still less in the country?they would obtain le hulf more, or even double these rates, id in an equally increased ratio for wheat, hich sometimes is sold at thirty cents per ishel. Admit, for the argument sake, that the msumers of these articles do pay the American anutacturers some advance on the price of the reign article, they would still be greatly the liners l>y the enhanced price of their agricultural eductions, particularly when they would be beifitted by that enhanced value upon the whole of ieir crop, whilst hut a small portion of the proedsot it could be expended for manufactured arules. These very iron works practically illusate the theory, by the results they pronuce in eir respective vicinities, where they add to the neral comfort and wealtn of the surrounding inntw liwfhmr larup e-vr^nHifnrp itnri hv furnish. H a market for the produce of the soil. What Ticv can be more stupid than the one wliich comlathe planter of Tennessee to send his cotton, at heavy exjieuee and risk, first to New Orleans, id from thence to Manchester, in order to he inailactured into negro clothing, and the latter then l.e brought back at a lurther expense and risk to rw Orleans, and then again conveyed 1,500 ilea ol river navigation to his residence, when 1 all the expense ol these repeated shipments, nil the various freights, insurances, coiiunisons, landing arid shipping charges, interest on ipital and labor bestowed on the manufactur-, mid he retained in his own State, by having his ilton mills on the spot, with the raw material >d the market lor the manufactured article at his vn door; besidrs ob'uiuing a regular and advangeous home market for the grain and meat raised his fellow citizens. The people of Tenuessee ere beginning to appreciate these advantages, ;d already upwards of thirty cotton mills were labhrhed and in operation in the State, and ey could have rapidly increased but for the tariff It 46, which has had such a blighting effect on enterprises ot that kind. But for that unforatte law, it is probable, ere this, Tennessee juld have, at this moment, manufactories operation within her borders, that would ve supplied her whole population at least, ill all the coarse cotton gooas required for her Dsumption. Now, so far as she receives these ods from abroad, she gives to the foreign manu:turer five bales of raw cottoa as payment for e bale manufactured into goods; whereas, under American system, she could manufacture this le herself, and still have four bales to sell to the eigner, for which she would receive payments , 8|>ecie or procure with the proceeds, other urti s of necessity, comfort or luxury." ! >ur venerable friend of the "plough, loom and vil," will eagerly and rightfully Beize upon Col. >dge's description of the iron manufacture in nnessee, and its effects upon the agriculture of : neighboring country, as a valuable item in the rat catalogue ot "acts which he is monthly coining to establish his favorite doctrine, that agrihural prosperity is only to be attained by the engagement ot manufacturing industry. The folding article of the Columbus (Cra.) feTimet, also ntains, in a bnet space, much useful matter for e consideration ot Southern readers. " Noticing the fact that the State of Massachutts manufactures boots and shoes to the value of me seventeen muttons ot dollars annually, tne hnu remarks "The principal customer for these boots and iocs is tne South. Why does not the South make r own boots and shoes, and thus save the mil>ns draineu from her pockets to make New Engnd rich 1 The raw material is here in abunmce.our labor is cheaper.and our market right at ir doors.

" This kind of industry is the secret of Northern osperity. and, if adopted here, will prove the hsman of ours. The marvel is, that the South is >t poorer than she is. We raise but one crop dt represents money and purchases our wants.? ^ith that, we have to buy our stock of mules and )fs trom the West, and our manufactured goods om the East. The cotton crop is exceeded in due by the productive industry of several trifling tides ot manufacture in New England. If we e not mistaken, the value of the leather manudure is far ahead ol it. We believe that the tibrella crop beats the cotton crop in value.? ow, then, are we to get rich, by pursuing a sinr branch of business, and over-doing that branch, ' the destruction ot prices, and to the impoverishrnt of our lands ?

The Matagorda Tribune of the 12ih alt. sayf a large number of Tezana left Galveston on Monday fast for California, by the overland route. So rapid has the tide of migration become thithel I from this State, that we almost fear depopulation. Bat the fever is not confined to our own section, for it seems to be wide-spread over the whole Union. The Galveston Civilian of the 10th ult. says that a party of fifteen gold hunters arrived there front St. Louis a few days since. They are menot means and discernment. They go well provided, and, with a good knowledge of the other routes^ give the preference to that through Texas. Thm distance is much less, the climate far better, ~an4 the roads, especially at this season, better. It is* fact that should not be overlooked (says the Ctviliari) that while some persons from other section# of the Union travel far to take the route througlt Missouri to the gold region, the knowing one# from Missouri descend the Mississippi to take th# route by Texas. Considering the breaking out of the cholera on the isthmus of Panama, ana other difficulties and delays by that route, Texas unquestionably now offers the best road to the new El Dorado." PISTOLS FO* THE CALIFORNIA EMIGRANTS. On the last night of the session of Congres# *00,000 was appropriated for an additional purcnaso from the inventor of Colt's improved repeating pistols, and a joint resolution was adopted, instruct* lag the Secretary of War to furnish these arms to emigrants going to California, at the government cost prices. They are thus advantageously supplied on a written application to the War Depart* ment.? Waihington Union, March 6. AN ENGLISH VIEW OF CALIFORNIA EMIGRATION, [From the Liverpool Mail, Jan. 27.] We have been favored with an extract of a letter from New York, wnttenby a correspondent, on whose veracity we can rely, and who has, commercially, the best means of information in reference to California. It is as follows:? "New York, 10th Jakuarv, 1840.? It Is supposed sf least one hundred and fifty thousand people have emigrated to San Franoiaeo and the hanks of the Sac smento river, the last and present month, hence thegrrat demand for artlolee of nrovlslons and bread I ant much inolined to think ths superabundance of gold there ie a monstrous exaggeration, got up under the connivance of the government, to indnee emigration on a large soale to their newly acquired terrltcrIM on the Paelflo. Time will snow." It would be consistent with plain truth if the term "exaggeration" in the above extract weta transformed into "swindling," for we are of opinion that a greater swindle has not been perpetrated aven in America, so fertile of these things, foe many years. That gold, silver, and copper, arm found in that part of the savage world we can easily believe, but that it iB so plentiful as is described we believe to be a gross Iraud uwon public credulity. What is most reprehensible in the matter is that the government oi the United States, acting upon the authority oi official servants, nave encouraged the imposture. That it is desirable that a Hood of population should bs induced to emigrate to the golden region, in order, eventually, to settle in the Oregon territory, we are not prepared to dispute. But when public policy is not based upon truth it becomes a criminal act. It is premeditated manslaughter. Two-thirds at least ot the people who go to California will perish oi starvation, disease, or the bowie knife, within the first year of their rash enterprise. But what does Mr. President Polk care for this T He has already put to death nearly one hundred thousand men, womco, and children, (including hiB own fellow-citizens,) in Mexico; and if ten or twenty thousand die in California it will, to a grand extent, be conducive to his policy. Impressed with these convictions, we most earnestly advise our readers- if they have an occasion, to persuade any friends tbey know not to fall into the inevitable wreck and miserable reverses of the Californian trap. It is well known that about 40,000 Mormons?fools and rogues, of course, with a very large preponderance ot the latter?after being persecuted, as ihev said, hv lhi> Slal?u ffn??f?m?nl left iheir city of Nauvoo, en rout* for this very California. But how many reached the goMere> paradise T Not quite 4,000, who had in their tr*? vele eaten their companions. It i" no renubliean joke. The survivora, now the lords of California were cannibals, petha,>? from dire necessity, bntt they were cannibals, nevertheless. These- men' and women-eaters are at present the republican aristocracy of the gold lumps; and there is every probability that when these minerals fail in pro* curing provisions and rum, which they are sure to do. this Nauvoon aristocracy will become cannibals agAin. Any fat Englishman who goes them . will, consequently, have no chance. Bustmtss is Charlestoh.?The Charleston, $ C , Ciiwritr, ol the 3d int.t., speaking of the spring business of that city, says i?Our country friends hrflii come down numerously, and from the fair prospects of trade in the interior, are purchasing freely. Another favorable feature, too, if we are correctly informed, is that they wake their payments of former bills readily and promptly, giving indication of a relief from the prrs?ure in money matters, liicb has be n so n* rnlly felt for a year p tat, i
