I mm now here, and I find that the fint great movement in favor of KW'fiua will be made in this city. 1 understand a general meeting of all the Mate Light A so-.-notions taken place here early in May. Here ia the first step. Judge butler's only objection to sece*rion n)w is, that the federal government will net go to war. If they would tfco h'otith would .ems to the rescue. if the government does not. South Carolina may be ?tar?cd rato submission. That is what he fears. Vou may. however, vary safety put on the steam. Secession i? pretty hot yet in South Carolina, and alia ia bourn] to do something. Will South Carolina secede ? Will Hie, against the dect-ice action of Georgia, the resolutions of V irgitua, und the acquiescence of all the other Southern -Mates in the late < measures; will she. .-ingle handed and alone, withdraw, or de liberately attempt to withdraw, from the I'nion ; and set up, or attempt to set up, a foreign govern ment to the rest of the confederacy, almost w ithin the heart of the l.'nited State-? At this juncture, this i? th - .-ingle abm rbing issue pending in South Carolina, anil by all means, and for all purposes, in evsjy Con, the mort important to the I'nion, and toeiery Mate of the I nion; and of paramount tuo ment to the l>c?t interest ; of mankind the wide world over. Reduced to its ultimate conse quence.-, this single issue jK-nding in a single Mate, of recession or submission, involves the breaking up of our whole federal system, and the de.-ecraUon of every thing sacred in government, religion, and society, to a system of civil war, mili tary de.qx.ts, miiita.y . lections and such a history of military butcheries as arc but faintly illustrated in the dissolution of the Status of C recce, or in the breaki.-g up <>f the empire of Koine, is easy p. imagine that, in the dissolution of this I oiou. a .-'.ate of war and anarchy would almost inevitably follow, more nearly approaching the horrible atrocities of the French Revolution. Have we not among us in the North, (thank Cod there a.e none in the South.) watching their oppor tunity, toe levellers, the ngiarians, the .socialities I ourieritea, red republicans, as good as the best Parisian ! From these spluttering destructives, and (fi>oi the abolitionists and free negroes, where would be the peace, or the hope ot peace, if once the Strang, conservative, law enforcing, and iwace j.iv-eri ing bonds of this Union are broke u . There would be no peace, no law no order.

Br that time, it i* thought, Congress will douate the mod* to the Hungarian wittier*. A fortnight ago, Major Tochman, attorney and counsel for the heir* of iJoueral Kosciusko, wished to take up, in the I'nited States Circuit Court for this district, and trj before a iury a certain issue re lating to a paper purporting to be a well by which Kosciusko is said to have bequeathed a few thou sand dollars to a Mr. Armstrong, of New York. Meters. Feudal! and Bradley interposed, and said that they also represented, a* counsel, some of the boirs, and were not ready fur trial. To this Major Tochman replied that, originally, he had the power of attorney from all the heirs of Kosciusko, and as sociated with himself Messrs. Kendall and Bradley, iu order to hare their legal assistance; that after Meiers. Kendall and Bradley entered with him, as associates, their names en the docket, they ehose to accept ofa proposition from M. de Bodiseo, to ob tain for them a new power of attorney directly in their name; that this circumstance resulted in'the dissolution of the association with Messr*. Kendall and Bradley, and that consequently, th? last men tioned gentlemen obtained tnrough the agency of Hodisce a power of attorney from some of Major Tochman'* client*, which superseded his original authority. But the-ame persons subsequently re roked the power of attorney so obtained trom them by Messrs. Feudal ami Bradley, and re-engaged ! Major Tochman'* legal service*." He had caused to i be served on these gentlemen his new power of at ! torncy, and never expecting them aguiu to interfere | with the case*, he allowed tneni, through courtesy, to stand <>n the docket. But his motive for this being misunderstood and not appreciated, he moved that their name- b-' -tricken off. This gave rise to an argument on both sides, which consumed several days, and on Ssaturduv the court decided in favor of Major Tochman. Thu* ended the controversy which has occupied the press and the halls of Con gress during four years, a* to who has the right to represent the heir- of Kosciusko as their counsel. Next week, probably, the issue which gave ocoa -ion to that motion will be taken up for trial, which is expected to be very interesting, a* the object will be. as we learn, to establish tbo legal domicil <>t ticuerul Kosciusko at the time of his death, which will throw light on the political history of the illus trious deceased. Several natives of Poland, who i tigured in high stations during the revolutions of that ill fated country, will be examined a- witnet ??es. The Hon. Revcrdy Johnson and Major Toch man, will ap|>eai n- counsel for the heirs; Richard S. C'oxe, Esq., lor Mr. Armstrong, claiming to be a legatee; and Mr. Morffit, for the administrator of the estate (Lewis Johnson). I' Washimotos, April 1(>, 1S51. Tlie toadied Republic of Costa Rica?Biiluer's 1 Ait est Importation-. 1 The affairs of Central America are assuming a I very singular, complicated, and interesting aspect, particularly in their relations to the I uitcd states. One year ago, it would have been easy to have driven Englund from the territories, which, under one shallow pretext and another, she had usurped I ?easy to have quilted the internal disturbances of Central America, fomented by British in ! 1 rigues?easy to have secured a new and perma nent federation of the States, and to have given sound American influence an enduring useendaney in the country. Had the cabinet of General Tay lor firmly seconded the policy of that good old man, had Mr. ( layton possessed sufficient decision and fearlcs?ne-s of character to carry out the suirgc - tlons of his own be ter judgment, this whole mat ter would have been -atisfactorily and permanently disposed of. The A merican .Minister in that couu trv, acting up to the -pirit of his instructions, the spirit of the age. an the temper of the American people, pursued a line of conduct which only needed the hearty co-operation of the government ut \V .uh ington, to have brought affairs to a favorable Issue. W hen the United Mates had really arou-cd her. self, England, almost for the first time in her history, receded from her positions. She had seized the magnificent Gulf of Fonseca, the inevitable western terminus "f the iuter-oeeanic canal, when ever that w irk shall be built, and commanding not only all the States of Central America, but the whole Pacific coast, and she surrendered it the instant lie discovered a detei mined and active di-i*>otion on the part of the Unit States. And the London Timet, in common with nearly all the leading presses of England, alarmed at the course of events, at once called for the abandonment of the -Mosquito ,-hore, and all other obnoxious pretensions in " et? tral America, as the only inode of avoiding a collision. That was the favorable moment for ac tion. The public sentiment in the I uitcd Mate-wa. undiv ided, and the cabinet of England wavering. But at that moment, unfortunately for the honor of the United states, deplorably for Central Ann; riea. Sir Uenrt Bulwer, the most adroit agent oi Palmerston, w as sent as minister to Washington. The sound is known, lie affected the saint to wards Sir.

Mow long Clayton might hav remained in this han-v -elf-dclu'ioii, no one knows ; but he ha l the acaks removed from his eyes one cool morning, by reading in the HeotM an intercepted letter front I riah to his confederate Chattield. in which be wa , very distinctly writteu down an a.-, if not in terms, at least by implication, lie was " w ak ; the whole governmeir. in fact, was pronounced weak in 1 riah's judgment, and really, I riah, alter his diplomat ic suet ess, had a right to think so Vrom that moment there was no more salittlycon fsn nee* between Mr Henry and Mr. < luytui. 1 h" latter called for an explanation,?the loriuer eqiii vo ated, denied the letter at fir-t. then remembered having written something like it?In -hort. blun dered awfully, and left the firm conviction on Mr. ClaV.on's Wind that be had written the letter. ,.?( have the b. -t means of knowing ho did. 1 ho policy was now to get rid of I riah. and layton smothered hi-wrath, a waiting the opportunity to give him the CM'/.. 1 In IW.n.

Dunlap, an Englishman, in a book recently published in London, ban very correctly ' indicated the political condition of the State* of Central America. He eays, p. AVI:?"The St a tee of San Salvador, Honduras, and Nicaragua possess popular governments, legally elected; and Guate mala and Casta Rica absolute and self elected go vernments." It was in Costa Rica that Mirazan, the last Presi dent of the old republic, the best and ablest man which Central America ever produced, and the last yillur of the confederation, was shot in a cowardly and cruel manuer. And subsequently, when Eng land seised Sau Juan, Costa Rica, under English instigation, acknowledged the Mosquito savage as a sovereign-^and in a drunken revel with Mr. Chris ty, British I omul, its dictator Castro, publicly re gretted that he had not a daughter whose hand he might bestow upon this breecbless sambo. This same Castro was raised to power by the soldiers of the ljuartel < ieneral, corrupted with money, in op position to the wishes of the people of the country, audin open and flagrant violation of the constitu tion. lie was sustained by Flores, absconding President of Ecuador, and notoriously a stipendiary of Palmer-ton. It was this man who sent Mr. Molina, the pre sent "minister" to this country, to England, to ne gotiate for British protection, a la Mo-x/uito. Our government, learning the fact, instructed Mr. Ban croft to inquire into the plan, aud, if possible, to defeat it. He saw Molina, who denied any such intention; yet, at that instant, a project to that effect was before the foreign office ; Mr. Advlington, Under Secretary of State, officially informed Mr. Cartillon, Minister of Nicaragua, of the fact, aud told him that any attack on Costa Rica, by Nicara gua. would call for English interference, "because the former State was under the protection of the British crown." The interference of the United States, and the turn of affairs in Central America, promoted the consummation of this plan. Mr. Molina, however, in part compensated for this failure, by negotiating whole batch of con tracts with parties iu England, for loans, colonisa tions, and finally for a canal. The last he had the audacity to grunt, in its entire extent, through Nicaragua; an impudent claim to a large slice of its territories having been previously set up! This claim has ju.-t about as much foundation, as if it had beon made to Long Island. He is now here, in pursuance of the same ob jects; and to accomplish them, assaults, open und direct, arc made upon Nicaragua, aud the other States of Central America, really devoted to repub ledged lican institutions. It is allcdged that they arc the opponents of a confederation?that they are the omMn to prog rem. This ?lander b best dis proved by the fact that they have already united, and have invited the other States to join thorn on terms of perfect equality?which, however, they have evinced -no disposition to do, but have co-operated with Chatficld and his serviles in their effort- to break down the union. The in tercepted letters of Flores, of Puvon, and others, the direct and constant attacks upon the very principles of confederation, in the official papers of both Costa Rica and Cuatemula, are conclusive upon this point. Any professions to republicanism by the murderers of, or their representatives, are hypocritical and audacious. The feeling of nationality in Central America is strong; it pervades the people with scarce an ex ception, and is opposed only by the old monar chists, the Anglo-serviles?a miserable minority, who could not exist for a day without the open aid of Great Britain. Our Canadian CorTftpondniM. ToEovro, April 9, 1851. George Thompson?Hu Abuse of the United States? General Intelligence?Isifontauu's Retirement, 4r. 1 have already supplied you with an outline of the principal points advanced by Georgo Thomp son, at the commencement of his campaign in this city, <>u yesterday sc'nnight. Since then we have nightly had a "demonstration" on the same sub ject, and arc to have the grnnd linale to-night. At the outset, only three meetings were contemplated, to each of which a York ..billing was charged for admission. 'The exhibitions took wonderfully. The capacious St. I.*wreuce Ilall was crowded by sim pletons, male and female, who paid with alacrity to hcor their own righteousness extolled, aud that of their neighbors most unrighteously abused. The receipt <>f 1,000 Yorkers per night was a temptation not to be resisted by gentlemen " who-e kingdom is m*t of this world, and an extended programme a as accordingly pr epared to bring more fi-h I* the net. Lven pious avarice may overreach itself, and so George 1 hompson and his Confreres hoc a by this tinui learned. On Monday night there was* a terrible falling off; and last ni"ht the wordv representative of Tower Hamlets discoursed most sweetly to a beggarly accouut of empty benches. lu nis speech on Munday, 1 hompson counselled and vindicated direct interference by the Canadians, in the question of slavery, lie referred to Daniel Webster's eorre.pondence with the Austrian gov ernment. to show that America claims the right to interfere with other countries; and he maintained that if the civilised world were to deal out the measures to the United Slates which .Mr. Cass re commended towards Austria, the State, would just ly be rut off from all international intercourse, ex cept with barbarian?. , t 1 ai^ht, Thompson out'Jid hin funnor of forts, in tne wav of utilising the clergymen and poli tician- of America, lie averred that in your coun trv sla ?ery ha? converted < htistuvuity into an ab-o lu'te curse*, which cannot be too soon annihilated. 'The woist enemy of freedom, (lie said,) is the min ister of religion, who declare* that the institution was originnliv ordained by God. lie went on to "ii v?"All this is sheer hypocriry. I do not believe there i? one minister in the I nited Mates who be lieve* what lie says. 1 know enough ol ministers in that country to believe that they preaih. de rigui'dlv and wilfully, what they know to be false. '1 nc.-e tuen deliberately go to their clo-ele, and, for purelv political and pro-slavery pun*'-""-, write ser mon- for the Sabbath dav, which they nil the while know to be palpably and dainnabl* nntin*. Ac cording to Thompson's shtwing, there arc but two reallv christian ministers in the 1 nitod Mate*; on* ..I these i- the did tie Theodore Parker, from whom he quoted approvingly n passage likening a \ iinkee to Judas 1 ?.?mint, th" only iliflcreitee between ihein l-eing, that the latter required 30 piece* of silver ere he been me a murderer, while the former requires but ten. . , .. He branded the Aineriean confederacy as the foulest despotism that lift- etcr existed, and declar ed that ever ince the declaration of independence, the poliev and governmental tendency ?f the coun try has been downward. New ) ork he considers , is worse than Sodom and < lomorrah; its merchants, ministets, and jolitieinns, being the nioei iulainou* j on the face of the earth. In such a place, an angel , would be tarred and feathered, if he hie * an anti- , slavery trumpet. The only holy spot in America, in his opinion, is the Mate of \ ermout; and the | only boU piece of legislation in the Union is the Vermont Nullification law' Danid Webster, once , godlike, was reprccnted to have fallen lower than i T.ncifer. . , . . ? ? old ronntrvmen" in America came in for tli ir ( chare of abn?e* The Irish, he said, nnifv rmly rash to the polls for slavery} the fvofh, be twevn prudence and piety, sell their souls for oot tn , and eschew abolitionism; while the l.ngli-n iftn-'e to participate in agitation on tin- subject.

This id my third letter of to-day. It is, you will notice, chiefly suggestions in relation to the fiscal and commercial policy of Mexico; and though veu informed me you preferred I should in my corres pondence give "news" and "facts," rather than essays and speculations 1 venture to depart from your "instructions" in this instance. You will find facts mixed up with arguments in this. Congress is yet in session, but it adjourns on the 31st of this month, until the 1st of Ootober next. 1 believe that no new elections are held in the interim, and that the same members compose the Congress at next session, but 1 am not certain. 1 will ascer tain, and advise you in a future letter; and also of the features of the new elections, if any. President Arista has been engaged in an inves tigation of the difficult and perplexing question of the "protective tariff." As in the United States so in Mexico, the manufacturers of cotton fabrics, and some other articles, insist that it is the judicious policy, and the duty of the government, to protect them from foreign competition, by imposing protec tive or prohibitory import duties on fabrics of for eign manufacture. The chief cotton factories here are at Pcubla, at Orizaba, at Qucretaro, and at Guadalajara. It is estimated there are from ten to fifteen millions of capital invested in manufactures, in the republic of Mexico. Most of the owners are Mexicans, but there are some Englishmen and other foreigners concerned in them. .Suflicient cotton is not, at this time, raised in the republic to supply them fully, and it sells very high, generally ueficli for 25 oenta per lb., and upwards. The deficiency is chiefly brought from New Orleans, under special permits from the government, the duty on which is about cents per pound. Mexico could, by the exertion of great enterprise, industiy, and cure, raise enough cotton for ner own consumption; and had they slave labor they could compete with our Southern States in some cotton markets. The States on the Pacific coa.-t, owing to their conti guitv to the Western coast of South America and the Pacific islands, and the East India and Chinese markets being nearer to them, might dispose of their raw cotton there to profit, iiut Mexico can not expect to sustain her cotton manufactories at home, by any mere impost regulations till she grows enough of the raw material to supply them. For upwards of ten years past, in order to encour age and protect their manufactures, the ituportaj t ion of the finer cotton fabrics has been \ irtuully prohibited by the imposition of a duty of 13^ cents per square yard; uiui the coarser kiuds are prolii in terms and absolutely. The M bitcd in terms and absolutely. The Mexican fabrics are chiefly of the coarsest kinds of cotton ; and the protection chiefly affects the trade of the United States and England. It is well ascertained that it is impossible to pre vent the English and American coarse cottons from being smuggled into this country. The extensive and exposed sea coast of the republic on the Pacific, and in the Gulf, and the sparse population, (rather lawless, too, in their propensities) on the froutier of Unit two thousand miles between the United Sates and Mexico, the pejuliar adaptation of the country for facilities to illicit trade, the necessities of the peo ple for such foreign fabrics, and the unconquerable disregard of English and American traders of all foreign impost laws, have caused smuggling to be carried on to an enormous extent. The English are the chief smugglers on the sea and gulf coasts. It is supposed three-fourths of the cotrsc cotton goods consumed in this country, a re thus introduced. Con sequently, the argument in favor of the prohibition, thnt it was a just and necessary measure of pro tection to the Mexican manufactures, is of no force, and the government loses the revenue, which it would receive from a moderate and reasonable duty only being levied, besides, the practice of smug gling these goods leads to contraband trade in every thing else that can he smuggled, and all fair trade is thus interfered with and ruined. The honest and law ubiding merchant, who respects and obey'1 the laws, and pays the duties, cannot compete success fully with the smuggler, or those wno vend his smuggled goods for him. Hut, like our "cotton jennies" of "Eowoll" and "Full River," in the United States, the manufac turers of Pucblu, tie., iu Ibis country, do not, and will not, understand bow their true interests can be consistent with those of the whole republic, which demand the removal of the prohibitious 1 have men tioned, and others of a -iinilar character. It is no torious thut the manufactured cotton fabric* of Pucblu and other places in this republic are not as food as those of tue I nitcd States or of England, 'he appurel made from the coarse cotton fubricg of Mexico will not hut the poor uxan more than a month or six week1, while the imported article will wear several month-. The depression el'the manufactories, ami tho ir regularities and uncertainties in all commerce here. etutdby the prohibitions alluded l?, and the con ent utter dis sequent utter disregard of the iiM?x>e? laws, have oc casioned great dL-'cuntent throughout the republic. The abolition of the prohibitory duties, it is alleged by those who oppose it, Li unjust, as their capital invested la the manufactories, was so invested, under the implied pledge of protection. It is -aid U will encourage the manufactures of Lnglaud and of the I'nited States, instead of "Mexican industry," and this is quite a eaptivatiug argument with tbo*e who look only to the eurfhee of things. It is prcci.-ely the talk, of our protectionists, alio would sacrifice commerce, agriculture and every thing else to their own sclfi.-n interests. Mexico ma\ wisely enceurage.tbc raising of cotton, by levy ing a moderate duty on the importation of raw cot ton, uiid it would serve to promote the interests of tho-e Mexicans disposed to grow it, while it would not be detriiueutMl to the Nai'hern >tates of our country, insomuch a- without slave labor Mexico cannot rival tlieni in the Kurepeau market; hut if it was .different wc should huve no ground of com plaint. Haw cotton is an article not casi.y smug gled without detection. Hut the wisest pulley of Mexico a- to most luAmfbcturtd nrtii le* i. the tree trade poliev, <>r moderate <td twrrm duties. Hhr cannot, for half a century to cotne, mpet< with I.nglatid, with the I nited Mates, 1 ,u uci old countries in hut very few tuanu <..-tnr? -, ind especially in the manufacture of cotton and woollen goods, that require intelligent and cheap labor, mechanical and artlatical skill and experience, which cannot he acs|nircd for a long time. The export-of Mt xico art gold, -ilver, n? hincal, dye mauls and -tuff', indigo, hides, vanilla, and to thi -? might bo added, it her paeple would exert tbemaelvcs, tUtmem, sejgsra, sugar, marly all the tropical fruits, and e,en rice and wheat and Indian Corn, ami, if attention wa- paid to the cultivation of the gia|>e, ae could, in a few yrm?, make enough wines for her own con-iuuption, and ev en some for exportation, HI--scd with a luxuriant soil and a genial climate, Mexico has no superior and h w rtjual- oil the luce of the earth as an agri cultural country, .??he never can he a great nniim fuetnring <tr navigating nation. Her wealth is in her -oil, its inmernls, ami its piodinta, ami in the profitable dirpos tion of thtni to other nations. 1 have been thus diffuse on this subject, at it is tbc all-itn|M>rt?tit MctUon now |auuling here. Since ' otigre-- has been in -c.-ion, the nianafaeturer* 'I J uted to attend it are Me--i Mujii a, furlong & I 'en i, three worthy and Intelligent gent lemon of I'cubla. and indeed leading eiti/en- of the repub lie. of high character and greai wraith. These gen tlemen have pp ic-it'l ?gain-t the aholition of the 11ohibitory duties. Their remonstrances hart *? , weight, ami fXeecdin.tly embarrass ynrtt Tttj "*? ;jj|g J ft tutl (hf quired fclly to un dertake the task of reform boldly and rigorously. hut they will beat the next tension. It ha- been suggested iltat a law giving liberal "bonnth - 'out <T the public treasury to the growers of cotton, and to the manufacturer-, may compcn -ate them f?>r their sacrifices fhr tho general good, and encourage them to More inerea ed cultivation and manufacture. I'ttltWv thi- i? the fairest, most o|>en, ami above hoard mode of giving en couragement and protection, and in our own coun try I should be rejoiced to see an express and un ?ini vocal cot)-titutinuul pi(diihitioti of all other jtindl vf trvttction, hy fedcial legislation. 1 should he willing to <eo tin'- xpiJ allowed, I , however: there would be little danger fro a it of partial, sectional, ami corrupt legislation, (even by the log rolling sys tem.) to anj very grunt extent,and ftva long time. The |ieo| le would not submit to it They would -ee, and feel, and understand, what they paid to monopolist*. They could not thti- he deceived by the -pecloos but dsluwivo repre-entation- of the prie tcctioni-t?, and the corrupt demagogue- they pay to aid thnn, a- to the. fleet, and operation of high or piotcctlvt dttiie-. They could not then oe wheedled and beguiled into the fanciful notion that ? he -ystetn w?? for their "nltimate benefit" and their "real intere-t-!" Heretofore many have been argued into the eonvic'ion, thai it ready takes no m< ncy nut of their pr* ket?, to he compelled hv law to pay a Yankee blood cloth mannfsctitrerf? per paid tor cloth, which, but lor ?uch law, they could get of the Kngli-h or French for f2 40; and they nave been mi-Ted al-o into the belief, that the f'J'iO went into the trea-ury, and not into the |?oeh ei? ol ,i c|ae? ?f non-worker., having little sympa thy with the ica-ses; as if in all e#?e? the lax payers do not bear the burthen. They would then not be del'iHuded by false pretence-. Bounties, of onrse, -hould not bo allowed retro. ?p< i lively, but -hould on Ily be paid on articles nro- ( (lured or manntaeiuresl alter the passage of the law ; giving them. We have paid millions of dollars for i Eountiee, in pa-t years, indirectly to the New I I Inglard mackerel and cod fishermen. The duties I on ill suit psest hy (hen ffil *,? l*?- I | am persuaded this was a fruitful source of frauds and imposition on the treasury, and wish you would nt leisure examine into the matter. I believe the law is yet in force. Why, I ask, should not tho wheat grower, or him who raises sugar or cotton, or who produces pork or beef, be rewarded out of the public treasury as well as the fisherman ! I would recognise, by express constitutional pro virion, the power of Congress to lay an embargo ; and also to prohibit, by direct law, the importation of any product or manufacture of any foreign country, when necessary to countervail restric tions upon the commerce of such country, or proper as a lucusure of national policy otherwise ; but 1 would never prostitute and pervert the revenue power for such purpose. The facts, stated in thisepistlo, as to the policy of the new administration here, must show to you the high importance of having in Mexico always, and expeciafly now, a representative of the first class a* to intellect, experience, attainments and statesman ship. Ho should be a practical business man, shrewd, and industrious, and vigilant. He should be acquainted with the commercial iuterests of the United States and of Mexico. He should be one who could enforce tho mutual advantages of a libe ral policy by both cogently. He should, in princi ple, be u free trade man. I shall say nothing against Mr. I,etcher. Ho is not here. I do uob know him. 1 think ho was regarded as a protec tionist in Kentucky; the State, 1 believe, he hails from. I presume tho preseut administration will not take aay great pains to effect a liberal commer cial treaty with Mexico. Mr. Webster, I think, bus avowed himself against all "reciprocity" trea ties squinting towards the free trade policv. If so, the British will get the start of lis again here, and we shall not be able to inako up our lee-way till a democratic administration comes into power. 1 would not commend to our public ministers tho sniffling, sycophantic, I riiih Ileep like civility of some I could name, us examples?making lovo speeches to flatter ami wheedle the populace; nor would 1 have an American minister practising obse quious genuflections to tickle any court or unv neo ple, for such things excite to the ridicule and (.not ion of the knave or ass that attempts thorn. In the United .States this fate has befallen every foreign minister that has attempted to follow such course, and it will overtake all others hereafter who are silly enough to suppose they can humbug the Yankee nation, though they may now and then fool a vain politician or a silly editor. But there are some things about British diplomatists that should be copied by ours. They are \ igilant, and as bold and tenacious in promoting Britisn "interests,"(whether "rights'* or not,) as they are sharp iii looking out with respect to them, (treat Britain may send men without modesty, and who cunnot oven affect it; but she neter sends sleepy heads nor leather pates, nor shallow jokt-is?nor ignorant uneducated men, nor mere ]>ednnts, nor pompous nothings, nor poli tical hacks without experience in diplomacy, on ini]>ortant missions. Such cattle are less danger ous at home. The United States should profit bv lier example. You must not suppose anything I have said, is meant to apply to our legation to thi* government. 1 find it as popular, if not more pop lar, than any representatives of the United State* here have been since Mr. Butler or Mr. Poinsett.
