Slavery ii ur?tloii?\e\v Mexico and (be Claim ofTcxa*. The treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, restoring yeace between the United States and the Mexican republic, has widened the breach between the North and South. The vast expanse of the territories acquired, with their invaluable harbors and mines of precious metals, surpassing in rich<!.? r>f rnmrnirf an f.ir from IlCalinfT? I have only aggravated our sectional disputes. The tricks of a clique of defeated politicians?the defec. lion of Nfartui A nn Iluren, the_orgiinization of the free soil party, und the consequent crusade against the extension of slavery, have exasperated the prejudices of the North to an unscrupulous hostility, and have driven the South to the most desperate resolutions. The question at issue is, the exclnsion of slavery by act of Congress from the new territories. The North demands the exercise of the power?the 5outh denies its existence. The difficulty does not lie in the exclusion of slavery, but in the exclusion by act of Congress. The position of the S>ith is simple and logical. They assume that the States are all equal partners in the Union; and that in the territories of the Union they all have an equal right?that Congress, as the trustees of the copartnership, cannot impair the equality of the members?that they cannot pass an act excluding the citizens of any one f'tate, with their property, from a lerritery, without impairing this equality, but that such an act is a breach of the copartnership justifying its dissolution. I'.ut the government of a territory being vested in Congress, the erritory itself lias no power of exclusion. It remains open until the territory is admitted as a State; and on assuming the sovereignty of s Pnio, he people are competent to admit or exclude slavery at their discretion. Whatever may be the power of Congress, such is the position of the Soath. Th*y assume, that to consent to the application of the proviso, would be consenting to a degradation, and that separation is prcfi-rable to disgrace. The duty, then, of providing territorial govern- J ments lor California and New Mexico, becomes a delicate and perplexing business Numerous expedients have been tried to avoid the direct issue; bat, from the obstinate resistance of the freesoilers, -.1 ... - - \>?w. r*a.a ti,,. Hi! IUirill|HF at a vt?U|'tviiiio?, ??c?V ^ , people ?>f California, however, are in process of j settling the question in that territory for them- , selves It may be confidently expected that they will early, at the next session, present themselves lo Ccngree?, with the credentials of a State. C^>n- ( grrss has but to accept their constitution, admit the State, and the question is nettled for California. ! Put a greater difficulty than the naked proviso : remains to be adjusted in New Mexico. Texas claims the territory to the Rio Grande. Excepting a narrow margin of gurden patches on the west back, the boundary of the Rio Grande would give * Texas all the habitable territory of New Mexico, including Sante Fe, and all the towns for a thousand nuUa along the river, on the eastern side, with a vast scope of desert territory extending noith to the Arkansas river, with a slip following the Rio Grande to its source, in latitude 42 All this territory of New Mexico, though claimed by Texas, was under the government of Mexico, till conquered by Gen Kearny and orgamxed as a territory of the United States, with the government at Fanta Fe, which instill in existence The treaty with Mexico secured the territory to the United Suites. The claim of Texas, then, c.innot rest either uj>on her settlement, conquest, or occupation of the territory. President Jt nrs, in calling upon the counfiea nf the Slate in l*4.?. lo act upon the resolil- < I.on* of annexation, nukes no m-ntinn of New M exico, or the county of Santa Fe. Texas, there | fore, has no claim, except in the resolutions of annexation, winch, among other things, provide:? 1 >t Raid State to be formed subject t? the a-tjuttnent by tbie government. of all ijoeetlon* ?f boutilary tliet inmy arte* with other goierntnenU. ke. 3d New of rnnrrnVnt ?t?e. not exceeding | fnwr la number In addition t? nai l State of Teiae and baring miWrletit p' pi atlon may hereafter, by theeonaeat of eald State, be formed *utnf the territory thereof wblrh ehall be entitled to admletlon under the pro lekn* of the federal eon?tlttitlon And *wh St?te? we m?y be f rood ont of tbat portion of the territory lying e??tb of 30 d'g 3't mln north latitnd* commonly li'iea a* the Mlee. otl <v mjmmle* line, ehall be ad- ' Bitted Into the I alon with or wtthoat slavery a< the 1 people of earh State eeklcg admieelnn m?y de?1r* And 1 fa each 8tate or Statee eball be formed ont of eatd ' territory, north of eaid hllaaoiirl compromise line, eta I eery, or Inrolnntary aetritnde, (except tor crime) i aha 11 be prohibited. T be government haa adjusted tli* boundary with 1 M exico; but the boundaries of Trxa* have yet to be defined Upon the third of the condition* of annexation, Texas may demand, if not the poaaea- I aton, ihe creeion o( the territory of Km Mexico. Wnboat it, the haa little or no territory norih eif thirty-six thirty, nor haa she territory snf" ficient to lie t lit uo intM four n, w StatoD nl co:ire- I nient site, without New Mexico. It it clear, therefore, tbat, in the annexation/ ongress contemplated the boundary of the Rio Grande aa the boundary I Texas, ana in accepting the condition*, the Statu may demand the line. If Congress h id indicated the line to be the Sierra Madrr, it was the right of Texaa to claim it, and the duty of Omgres* to take it good. Juatice to Texaa requires, then, tbat ahe should have the territory; the may hold the gsvernment to the contract of annexation. Bot i he re will be a strong opposition to thi* claim a the next Congress. The chances are rather agaisst it. A convention at Santa Fe petitioned the last Senate againat the surrender of New Mexicn tn Texas. Colonel ftenton teok sides with the petitieners, and the present Secretary of State was his associate, to whom the petition was addressed, hnt is aot comm.tied beyosd the ground for M remj romire 77>s riew* cf the administration mr.r.ir- t if-iw tnrt hi h ?Wi m iw^nwn i .tmrni in have yet to be given to Congress. A reeommeud?ti( n by the President in favor of Texan would probably rettle the question. By the terms of annexation, if 11 new State, with the aenrnt of Texan, should be formed ol New Mexico, it cannot be a sluveholdinp state, but at the option of the people. The territory cannot auppon rlave labor. On the other hand, no separate ti . ?rial government can be rnudc for New Mexico, without a breach of the contract with Texas, and without hazard of alienating the South freni the I'nion. But we apprehend there will be a ridiculous waste of time upon this bone of contention. Free soil lias nothing else to stand upon. Surrender New Mexico to T< xne, and the tree Boilers arc d*furct, lite slavery agitation is defunct, and the cliques of egiutors will be bros>en up. Something must Lt- done. The bourdury of Texas must be settled, and New Mexico wants a government. We trust the President will recommend the policy which is best, without regard to party cliques or sectional demagogues. Tub Recent Elections, and rim Cabinet.? The organs of the Cabinet at Washington, and the whig papers generally throughout the country, arc doing nil in their power to reconcile the party to the result of the elections which have recently taken piece in several of the .States, and which, as our read' is are aware, have detracted from, rather than added to, the strength of the administration of General Tuy lor, although the personal popul irity of the old hero has not been in the slightest d gree impaired or lessened. Nor should it be lessened; for when the people of the United States put him in nomination for the presidency, tliey were perfectly uware, even if he had not himself confessed it, that he had spent the greater part ofhis life in the camp, and w as unacquainted with the details of government business. These he was not expected to 1 peiform, and he committed them, and the shnping j of the general policy of his administration, to his : cabinet advisers?placing before them, as their j chart or guide in the performance of that duty, the j numerous letters which lie wrote during the can- ! vnes, and the pledges which he voluntarily gave previous to his eh ction. The independent people of the country were delighted at the opportunity which presented itself lo them of bestowing the highest office within their gift on a ni in who himself was independent?whose virtue, honor, and bravery were beyond dispute, and whose character throughout a long life was spotless; and their opinion of liini has not been changed. Such was the manner and such the circumstances under which General Taylor was elected A " si". T">nir TKi? VOLIlU i\f t !"? ? fOOOIlf IU lur 1 jcmurm j. auv pun v? iuv >vwh? vivvtions, therefor#-, cannot detract from the popularity nnd the estimation in which he is held by tlx-people at large, and cannot be traced to any desire on their part to repudiate htm. What, then, can they be attributed tot We think there can be no difficulty in answering this question. Ask any one who has watched the course which the numbers o| the cabinet have pursued since their cppointmeiit, and he cannot but pronounce condemnation on both tliem and it, especially that part of it which had refer* nee to our foreign policy. When the future historian depicts the year 184i>, lie will point with utnazement to the conduct of the cabinet ia our foreign relations; and wh'-n the rotten aad corrupt desjKitisina of Euro;*? shall have been overwhelmed and destroyed by indignant and outraged millions?when republicanism ahull prevail throughout that quarter !' the world? our posterity will blush lor us, and sineerely regret 'hat our government did not avail itself of the glorious opportunity which was presented?to it of extending a helping hand to oppressed and downtrodden Europe, and assisting them in the struggle in winch they engaged for their legitimite rights. They will entertain of as of the preaent day, an opinion similar to that which we hold in reference to Louis Napoleon, and the subjugation of the Roman republic. Our cabinet refused to give a help. illg band, or a symptom of nrnnrHt?om?nt, In either Rome or Hungary. I,ouia Napoleon employed the resources of the French nation in the I destruction of Roman republicanism; our ca. j binet employed the naval forces of the Uuited States to prevent the unfortunate inhabitants of Cuba, from the sweat of whose brows the irn. mi nse sum of twenty millions of dollars is annually drawn by the corrupt and imbecile govern- i inent of Spain, from achieving their indepea- j dence. Louis Napoleon's criminality in the one , case, is not greater than that of our cabinet in I the other. In both cases, liberty and repubh- [ canism were suppresaed. While it cannot be ! denied, on the one hand, that Rome would he a republic at this hour if France had not interfered to replace in power h?r sacerdotal sovereign and hi* hooded Mtcllites, there is but little doubt that the people of Cuba, with such assistance us they calciliated upon fiom the I aited State*, without violating the law of nation*, would have been, ere Hue, Iree of the tyranny which crushes them. In foct, the whole foreign policy of the cabinet, ?ince their Induction into office, ha* been at variance wiib the spirit of the age, contrary to the feeling* ar.d sympathies of the Americnn people, and will, in future time*, be considered a staiu, a blemish, ' a black *|<ot on our national escutcheon. Tlil* wn* one ot the cause* which produced the result* in the election* which have receutly been i held ; and when we give t* it the weight to which it is entitled, and connect it with tig* domestic policy of the cabinet, a* tur a* the eierciac of the appointing power t* concerned, the organ* of the cabinet nerd not wonder that Mr. Hwmg and his j associates are not aunt lined by the country. Ttiey have failed to discharge the restion*ibilitie* which Cenrral Ta>lor, in hi* magnanimity and openness of hcurt, conferred upon lum, and brought about the ?|iectarle w hich w* now behold, of a President ebcted by acclamation, being without a majority in the House ol Representatives; tor such will be the condition of things at the next session of ('.on. grrs* (ieneral Taylor himself, has not had any influence in producing these deplorable results, as 1 i? well known If the policy which he sketched in his lrtters and *|>eeches previous to his election, i and whieh he placed before the cabinet as their guide in conducting the affair* of the governrnant ?if that policy and those views had been adhered to by the cabinet, they and their organs would not, in all probability, be lamenting at this lime, as tliey are, the unfavorable result* of the elections that have recently takrn piece. In a few weeks New I York will pronounce her verdict, and we shall see what judgment the Kmpire State will pronounce in the mutter.

At the game time, Mr Kry, or Mr. Mblu, or Benedettl, or Trufll, or aomebody. appear! to be organising forces for an oppoeltion company at Niblo'a. Krom the (tatcment, however, of one of the Maretxek's, tbe preparations of Mr. Fry will uot luterlera In the completion of tbe arrangement* for tha other tronpe. Mr. Fry falla heir to tbe scores, oostumaa, tc., of tbe late company at the Opera House; but, as fur as any deficiency of this kind may have been occasioned, it ban already been provided for. The price of subscribers' scat! has been raised to a dollar and a quarter, and it in but fair that they who have tbe exclusive use of the best seats, should pay something extra for tbe privilege. It would net be inexpedient to charge for such seatn one fifty, wr on* eeventy-flve, In view of the guaranty of the most eligible pluces. The opera expenses are heavy, and to sustain them, nothing short of a good list of subscri. hers for tbe season, at a good price, can be relied upon from tbe bcglunlng. Tbe troupe of Marutrek Is said to j be talented end harmonious. We presume it will be competent to meet the expectations of the opcra-lor ICK knu OperS-pairuuiZlDg puuilo, lur nr vu II" rrrolveil. at laaat, to merit success. But w<> (hall Ot Mr. Somebody'* Intantloo* %n<l arrangements, ? are not ?o well Informed. It 1* understood that he l? to open the opera season with a company at Niblo's, and that the ptice of admlialon will remain the same a* usual? fcfty cents. How two operatic houses are to be sustained in full chorus in New York, at the same time, it Is somewhat perplexing to answer. Competition, however, is the roul of burines', and one good effect in this instance, will be to secure us the best that is going It is the business of the managers to count the oust. If the haul tan are delighted, who cares if poor devil* of managers are ruined ? Col. witbb and the Ad^inistratioh.?There is not a more ill-used man than our cotemporary, Col. Webb, of the Courier ami Km/uirer. After trying to ruin the late administration, he applied to i Mr. folk, wlun the Mexican war broke out, for a brigadier-generUtlnp, but was refused, and the Colonel was deprived ol the privilege of nuking the Mexicans feel his wrath. In the ordinary routine of utich matters, Mr. Polk makes way for Old Zack, and the Colonel, under his administration, too, is an applicant. In the meantime, however, his bellicose propensities were cooled down, and instead of asking for a brigadier-generulship, j he simply desired to get a foreign mission. At lurk would have it, he was again disappointed, and, to cool his ardor, our gallant cotemporary took a journey to the northward?to the upper lakes?where, in the vicinity of Mackinac, while pulling in the trout with a hook, he descanted on | the merits of that excellent fish, and dilated at length on the resources of our Western country, ' as well as on " matters and things in general." . Before reaching that extreme point, however, the Colonel est beef, broke breed, nnd eraolzod vral | nuts, with General Cass, und managed, somehow or other, to get that statesman into a difficulty in relation to his political principles. Not withstand- ' ing those disappointments, the Colonel is at his post as usual, and in a long article in yesterday's issue of hi* paj>er, lukes precisely the same ground 1 iu regard to the cabinet that we usaumed when the Banie cabinet showed their hands. lie, like us, absolves the President from all blame in regard to the miserable polit y which characterized the cabinet in its use of the appointing |>ower, and agrees with us, that the old General, now m the Whit* > Ilouse, is not to blame in the matter. Now, our gallant coteiu|>orary must not be over- | looked by the President; and, in order that the wound which was made by Mr. Polk, in refusing him a brigadier-generalship in the war with Mexico, nihy be healed, we hope that General Taylor will give hun the same |>ost in the war which is to grow out of the dilliculty between Mr. Clayton nn I M Poussiu, the representative *f the republic of France. We really believe tliHt (lie Colonel is entitled to this murk of favor, and we hope be will get it. Seriously, however, r.s onr " ancient friend and Pistol" agrees so fully with us in a mutual estimation of the cabinet, why cannot we agree on the line of action so necrssury to pursue in such an rmi rgency of public affairs 1 Ought such a , cabinet be retained 1 Should it not bs replaced by a new cabinet of able and houeat men t Will not our coteinporary join with us in pressing su<-h a step upon the notice of General Taylor!

Our telegraphic despatches ihii morning include a synopsis ol the news from California, received ul New Orleans by the steamship Falcou. It will Le seen that the movement towards the forma ion of a legitimate government in California, and her admission inro the confederacy aa a sovereign State, is progressing quietly, bat with certainty. In other ri>j>ecl8, the news received from California by this arrival is not of much importance, but yet it is interesting. Another iuetalment- $"00,000?of the proceeds of the gold mines has arrived at Panama. The loss of the schooner John A. Kuter, of Warren, 1! I., In ihe Straits of Mag?II in, on her way to California, is announced by the steamship Alabama, at New Orleans from Chagree. We have three despatches from Washington, in reference to the proposed renew.il of ihe President's tour northward, each of whn.li tells its own story ; and from nil of which it id somewhat difficult to

judge whether or not Old Zaek will favor us with his presence this full. Further details ?f the Georgia election, and other interesting matter, will also he found below. VIRY LATE FROM CALIFORNIA.
