The political affair* of that republic were a* usual . much troubled; bat this time it was external war, not civil commotion, which agitated the public mind. Capt. Brevoor reports that a few day* before leaving Pjrto Cabello, the Venezuelan government hid sent 30U troop* to Uaracaibo, and that the laboring classes were being impresFed into strvtce, for tbe purpose of making war upon the neighboring republic of New Granada Tbe Presidtnt, Jose T.

TM PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE. Cittzen Senators and Rkpreskntativib: ? In the midst of the multiplied attentions which our internal condition oilers to the national authorities, and to which I have referred at lecgth in my former messages, a new matter of grave character has come to occupy, by preference, tbe executive power, charged with watching over the in tegrity of the territory, the conservation of the sacred rights of tbe nation, and its dignity and glory, which It must not permit to be affected in any case. The information which I have received by the last mail from New Granada, ootids us that in that neigh boring end sister republic, which has always merited marks of oar consideration and deference, onx senti ments are not corresponded to, and that our fr'ondly and loyal conduct of which we have just given a proof In sendiDg to its government a minister plenipotentiary with tbe chief object of felicitating it on tbe re estab lishment of our and the triumph of constitutional priu ciples, which bad suffered in the last revolution, for an the most surprising contrast with the conduct of the Congrats of that country, which was engage! at the same time in tbe adoption of the most scandalous mea sures to eater, of its own authority, into possession of a great part of the territory of Venezuela, in which we have exercised and do exercise tranquil dominion, or which dominion, disputed by that republic, has been the object of diplomatic negotiations which are still pinding. With this object in ' view, both houses had given their approbation to a project of law granting 10,000 bectareds or land for the opening of a road between Riohaoha and Maracaibo, necessarily disporing of the disputed land in that psrt. In tbe House of Repreieetitives another project of law hss been discussed, in which has been declared free, from tbe let of September of the present year, the com merce cf exportation and importation in the territory compri/ed in the great basins of the Amazon, of the Orinoco, Kio Negro and Casi ivnare, fixing arbitrary limits, by which Venezuela is despoiled of more than four thousand square leagues, in whioh she at pre? en t exercis es jurisdiction, and of a much more extensive territory, to which she has a right, by the American principal of uti po*ri<Utis (" as you enjoy") established as a bare in the negotiation still unterminated upon <ihe boundaries, which coi respond to the Colom bian States, in the same region, respecting which the representatives of the said Colombian titates lave stated in the memorial which they drew up at Lima, that the confusion ot said boundaries was demonstrated, as also the necessity of puttiag an end to that confusion by a definite demtrca tion and com mon recognition of their respective territorial rights, proposing to this end a ntr negotiation upon more am ple oases than those whioh had been given to the nego tiation! which were separately prosecuted between these same governments towbom was dlrectel the said memo rial waish they bad collectively signed. The rupture of those negotiations by the fast of one of the contrasting parties arrogating to Itself the right of disposing of the master in spite of all reclamations, setting at defiance all the principles and practices established in interna tional relatione, and violating the respest whioh govern ments owe eech other, is not presented merelv as an abuse or lrgislative power, but as an Injury and intoler able outrage ; even setting aside, for tbe present, the con siderations and connections between peoples associated by all their antecedents and which Venezuela has made it a duty oh herself to obeerve as a family law since her ?operation from Colombia But these acts, gTave as they are, do not manifest so mush the aggressive character of the meaauies which tbe Granadian Congress Is discussing with respect to us. There is snotber more remarkable fact which, on account Of the profound sorrow which it has eaueed me, I do not Tenture to qualify. Tbe .House of Representatives of New Grsaada was considering a project of constitution, establishing a confederation which Its authors oailed the Colombian Confederation. It appears that they selected this name? unittd hitherto to so many records of glory and of nobis abnegation? for the purpose of extending in a mani>er less frank, although more onensive, tht limits ef Kew Granada, at the expense or the other sec tions, which entered into Uie composition of old Colom bia; appropriating to Itself the sympathies inspired In al' those wb'j understood the thought of Bolivar, by that beau tlf til republic whieh ho endowed by his exploits, and whieh was strengthened by the blood of the Yene cuelans. It appears incredible, but it is so. certain that there is no doubt of it, that in the new or Snisatlon of the neighboring republic, they reckon upon e annexation of towns belonging to Venezuela and to Ecuador, besides reckoning upon our territories on which they have seized, by thwe projects of law to which I have refeiitd. In suppoiing the future incorporation of any section of the Spanish American republics which are borlaring it, there Is established in said project of constitution the necessity that they have a political existence, and the power of uniting themselves to New Granada by means of a treaty which tbst executive power might celebrate, and which might be approved by the Senate of the con federation. Dots, then, the power of the Grauaiian Congress extend to people independent, and organized under the form of government which tney have freely accepted and which they sustain? And why doea it as ?ums the excrcist of powers which it has not received from them, in providing for events which necessarily suppose the destruction of their owo*government, the shameful abandonment of nationality, and the crime of civil wai? The ice a of annexing some of oar provinces appsnrs mere than a legislative thought proper for a constituent hod) ; it appears a revolutionary plot, a seditious exci tation, a determined desire to offend the se?f esteem of oar own people and the dignity of the nation. A design bo meditated, as m?y well be supposed, sinse it for mi part of a project of reorganization of government, could not have been conceived unless that it belonged to a plan of grit alto ua hostilities, for which the government of Venezuela has never given cause, neither has the Con gress of Mew Grana'a recollected an act or Venezuela which ought to serve as a rale on this point of annex ation, but which the friendship and good faith of neigh boring governments and far Own self respect prevents her mentioning first ta that government which thereby increased its power. In the lamentable epoch of the.disor ganization of Colombia. Venezuela did not consider herself authorized to accept the annexation which the proviso* of Casanare had voluntarily and. with repeated instances proposed, although all the sections of Colombia appeared free to ctcoi? their nationality ; and aha made it a duty, inasmuch as she honored the voirs and the sympathies of Cesantrs, to interest bereelf in its reconciliation with the government to which it naturally belonged, thus de siring that the separation of the Colombian family should not have sny germ of discord, hut rather that it should be marked with s demonstration of the most com plete end affectionate fraternity. The Giaradian Congress has not followed our example. Far from that, it pretends to set a contrary example. We shall see the results. I do not believe, gentlemen, that there is any part of the Venezuelan people that desires to cease to be Venesuelan; still less do I believe that there is any one who calls himself a son of Bolivar who wishes to destroy the country of the Liberator. After such offences to oux name, to oar chancier, and to our sentiments, I fear, in the bitterness of my heart, that even the name of Colombia, which we might invoke as a hope in our conflicts, and always as an emblem of glorv, may become thus defiled, and perhaps useless to the chil dren of Bolivar, who have bo; doubted that there would arrive mere fortunate times for the re- establishment of the union which. Venezuela has always accepted as a principle, and the application of which it hae left enroll ed in its constitution, that it may serve in future trans, actions with other States, as the only medium of intelli gence between people who love and respect each other. Mav Cad save Colombia t The executive power has taken the measures wh'ch it has deemed oonvenlent to war? off every consequence of thoeeacts; and it has believed that it should make to yon the preeeat communication, 10 that y?u may not ail to hare official notification of such grave occurrences. Depend upon it, gentlemen Senators an 1 Reprsssnla ilvee, that the executive power will correspond in tain emergency with the dutieo Which it hae contracted, to sustain the indepeadease and the integrity of the re J(HE f.

That in these circumstances Venezuela ought, for jts own rignity, for the juat defence of ita rights, for the inviolability of ita conttitution, and for the immunity of ita territory, to plaoe itself in a condition to repulae with success every aggiesaion, maintaining unsullied the national honor In the event of the inefllcacy of the strong friendly reclamations which the executive power should direct to that of Kew Granada, on account of those acta which that government should not have per mitted, and the toietance of whtth, on ita part, ia op pi Fed to the duties which tbe friendship anl reciprocal rerpect of tbe two republics impose upon it?

On this day, on which we celebrate the greatest of the edlcmn days of tbe country, I salute you. How nrary glories, how many trfamohs, how many recollections unite to-day to excite our patrotlsm! Without pride, but full of real satisfaction, we may congratulate ourselves on contemplating (he virtue! and the exploits which were united to form the first page of our history, in whish had to be registered the moat wonderful acts, the birth of free nations, and tbe transformation of people sequestered from the woild by despotism, and whom liberty called to civilization. Let ua net to-day rccellect those sacrifices, save to recognise the price of our righti. Let us not recollect our errors, save to take in the noble example of the heroic mar tyrs of patriotiem whose names illustrate all our towns and almost all our families ? tbe resolution to preserve by our own effort* the work of their virtues, indepen dence, liberty, tbe republic. Venezuelans? I have heard of your vows ? I have understood your intention*. I have unreservedly con secrated myself to your service In my turn, I have the right of tellirg you that which I require to satisfy you. 1 avail myself of the disposition of tbe public mind, on this happy day of reciprocal pleasures, of profound and common joy, of elevated thought and desires, to ask from you, as an element of government, your union; aa a prcof of gratitude to thn founders of the country, your fiim adhesion to the independence, the name an.l the g!ory of Venezuela: and, as a pledge of prosperity and progress, the sacrifice of the passion* whish have divided us, on tie altars of republican virtues. Venezuelan#, united and virtuous, Venezuela will be that which the illustrious patriots of the 19th of April desired that she should be. IV. th all the elements of prosperity which abe possesses, with free institutions, it depends upon ourielvea alone that we become one of the happiest and wealthiest peoples of America, Venezuelans? We are now in one of those circum stances to which patriotism cannot be Indifferent; it concerns tbe honor and glory of the republic. Our do mi stic dimensions, which have divided and almost dis organized ua internally, haro given riec externally to pretensions opprobrious for the country whose birth we celebrate. Let ua swear, united, to defend her; and to avenge her it she should bo attacked. Let us swear it by the sacred mi nea of her founders ! ' ^ eneznelans ? Let the difficulties which have come to prove our character, serve to giTe us more valor in our undertakings. Lat us prove that we are worthy the heritage of Bolivar, by defending tbe independence which that hero, when dying, claimed as bis most precious glory. Let us not fail to preserve unblemished the same of Venezuela. United, also we shall be strong? we shall be invincible .' Caraquenos (citizens cf Caracas)? You deserve a spe cial salute on this day. The glory of the 10th of April, which has shone over the whole world of Columbus, sparkled from its beginning upon Caracaa with the live liest light. I salute you with all ths effusion of my pat riotic sentiments frcm the same place in which the American independence was announced, and by the aid a of the glorious monument in which repose the ashes of the hero, whom Providence chosc from among us to rea lize it, in the vatt continent wluch he freed by his glories. Caraquenos, all Venezuelans, unite yourselves cordi ally to your government, so that the tri color fiag which you unfurled on the 19th of April, which his pafescd in triumph through South America, and in whose shadow the beautiful republic of Columbia grew up, may not fail to protect alwaj s the Venezuelan territory. Rather death than consent that its celors," emblematic of so many triumphs, shall cease to decorate the aacred roil Of the country I JOSfc, r 1IOXA8A8. Caracas, April 10, 1855. Another Foray on the Cyprians. In accord* iie? with ths orders of Mayor Wood, the po lice captains la the asvertl districts la it night made ano ther descent upon the street walkers. The station houses were soon thronged with these poor creatures, and their st>U more miserable male associates, who make a living off these poor children of shame. The Sixth ward polioe arrested a number of (iris who make the Park their re sort to pursue their calling. These are generally of the most abandoned character, as was abundant?/ evidenced when taken to the itatioa house. Tfiejr shonted, sang, and made all manner of uncouth noises. They were brought in between the hours of 8 acd 10 o'clook, and accommodated with cells for the night. There were twenty-seven in all, the majority of whom were found In tfcs Park In the Filth ward, there were twsaty arrested. One of the women, incensed at being arrested, swallowed the contents of a phial of laudanum. A doctor was sent for, and the use of a stomach pump made si' right. In the Eigbth ward, there were no arrests made, a? the wcacen got wind of the intended fcray, and wisely kept out of the streets. Those few who did make their appearance, walked along cjuistly, and acted very differently from tbs way they usually conduct themstlves. By ten o'clock, so quick bad ths news spread, the streets were as nouslesa and fjaiet as they usually are about three o'clock in the nriHtning. The appearance of the great thoroughfare was very diffe rent irom the way It naaally appears. Ia the Four teenth ward thexe wero five girls arrested, mostly those of aa abandoned character, who were making a disturb ance ia the street. There could not have beea less than a hundred girls taksn up to ths station houses in the lower wards. As the attention of ths authorities is now fixed oa this matter, it would be well for tliem to take some notiee of the men who make it a business to follow young girls in the streets, and insult them with infa mous proposals. A yonng and very pretty country girl earns to tbe of fice of tbe Chief of l'olice last night, and informed Ser geant Owscs that she had jutt arrived from Albaar, and was crossing ths Park, on her way to a boarding house, when she was accosteu by a well-dressed scamp. who of fered to accompany ner home. She declined accepting his company, but ne conttaued to follow her, until she was compelled to take refuge in tbs Chief's oftioe- Officer Mathews was sent in pursuit of ths fsllow, and suc ceeded ia arresting him ; but as ths girl refused to make a charge, he waa allowed to go. This is but one of many cases that nightly ocour. Poor working girls , on their way home, after dark, dare not cross the Park, for l'ear of being grossly insulted. To day, the girls arrested last night will be taksn to the several police courts, sad dealt with a< ths law directs. The Pcverelly Arson Cnec? Accused admitted to Ball. Strung COn?T?? OKNKRAI, IKK*.

Boston and New York ? the two greatest (itieaof this Western hemisphere, through their retire tentative*, have this nijrht united In sentiments of lore and devotion to the great Interest* of our common coun try; and it seems to me that a great portion of the North, as well ss of the South, do not properly weigh and con sider all tbe advantages arising from the union of this great confederation of States.
