Jt is interesting to contrast tin.- wantof unanimity, n-nl tin- Bi-f'vc opposition tlr.it characterized the commencement of the war with England, in 1812, with the enthusiasm an<l energy with which the eastern country engages in the pending war with Mexico. East, west, north unit south, the great est unanimity and order prevail. New England was the first to declare her opposition to the war o! 1612, aud ?ho is now among the first to join, heart and soul, in llie can-* of the country against Mexican aggression. Among tlie remarkable sign* of the time#, wo liud a K>n of l>aniel Vv eb ster, (a young gentleman of great promise, and possessing every necessary qualification for n good soldier,) proceeding to Boston for the purpose ot raising a company, with the express consent of his father. In every part of New England, vol unteer companies are being formed, and over the whole length and breadth of that peace-loving community, is heard the " dreadful note of pre paration." What renders thisardorof tho New Englanders more remarkable is, the fact, that the pending war must bring an accession of strength and territory to th.< Southern and Southwestern States, the bare prospect of which has always been a terrible hug-bear to the people ?1 the East; and has engaged the watchful vigilance, and called forth in opposition to it, the mightiest energies of some of the greatest men ol that sec tion of the country. The unanimity and enthusiasm which prevails has been generated in a great measure by the gal lant exploits of our little army on the banks oi tho Rio Grande. The cool strategy, promptitude, de cision, and invincible courage of General laylor and his officers, have called forth the liveliest emo tions of admiration,and have stirred up the emula tion of our citizen soldiers. Never was there a more brillian' affair than the action of the 9th of May. Even the passag" ol the bridge ot T.oJi, which co vered the French army with unlading glory, does not at all surpass it as an instanco ol dauntless heroism. The account of ilieue gallant deeds has raised a corresponding enthusiasm throughout tho country; and the recollection of the honors be stowed on those who distinguished themselves in tho war of 1K12, has contributed not a little to tho activity and warlike spirit that manifest them selves on all sides. The war of 1^12 had a most important bearing on the politics of the country. Tlie declaration of war was mn<t vigorously opposed by some ol the leading politici.ir.3 of the day, undcU.etly by those front tho New England States. The success of our arm* in ihc brief but hard-fought struggle \v ith ( Kngland, opened tho door of political preferment to those who had advocated the war; aud tho.-o who were activc in their opposition to it have never since been able to reinstate themselves in popular favor. ."Since that time to tho present, the country has been governed bv the favorites ot n : set of idle, dissipated, brawling, factious, loafing pot-house politicians, liar-room republicanism and salt sage democracy have been in the ascen dant. Their claims for supremacy were founded on their advocacy of the war ot 1812, and we have seen with what success they have played their cards,, But to the pending war with Mexico there is no opposition, except trom a lew miserable and in significant abolitionists, who 1 ave long since lost nil weight in the com mum ij", and whose tactions carping passes almost unnot t d. '1 he insane dri velling of those visional ics, is so utterly unimpor tant and contemptible,that though they often \ erge on treason against the commonwealth, they only create pity for the mental aberrations of the wri ters. Sensible men of both parties have united iu cordial support of the war, and of the measures of the administration. There is no doubt that this war will create an entire new order of things in the political world. The advent of this political revolution was first foreshadowed in the late discussion of the Oregon question in Congress. Men rif the highest politi cal station and influence in the opposing parties stood side by side. The flimsy barriers of party prejudice were broken down, and sensible men ofboth parties joined in the advocacy of one and the same sensible measure. I he veteran lenders of the two great political parties, Calhoun anil Webster, were found chiming most harmoniously together, and administering a signal rebuke to the savage democracy. The Mexican war will burst the political shackles that have so long kept great and little minds bound together. A new party will spring up, composed of the sensible, moderate, and right thinking men ol both parties; and they will have, in opposition, a party com posed of a farrago of rabid wings, sausage demo crats, and an infantile swarm of most incongru ous fledgelings, made up of every political hue and texture. Thus we see that the Mexican war will exer cise a most beneficial bearing on the future pros pects of the country. It will purify legislation, by giving the preponderance to men ol sense of all political parties. The rabid, red-mouthed, ultra# of all parties, will find their proper level, and will be hereafter properly appreciated. Whatever ficniious capital they made out of the war of 1M12 will be entirely swallowed up in thv memory ol the present war. It will hereafter be the era from which the new parties will date their rise; and the memory of the various little partie# and fac tions that have fretted their busy hour upon the political stage since the war of 1812 up to the pre sent time, will be consigned to merited oblivion.

THE FIR8T FLASH OK THE lights:7ffO L21TS FROM WASHINGTON TO NEW YORK. Important Intelligence. FROM THE SEAT OF WAR. The Particulars of the Investment of the City of Matamoras BY THE ARMY OF OCCUPATION. The Retreat of the Mexicans, REQUEST OF GENERAL ARISTA FOR AN ARMISTICE OF SIX WEEKS. More Mexican Prisoners, &f. if. ic. The lightning lini itom Washington to this city is complete, and we received the fi.st fitsh? tlie first intelligence, at an early hour last evening ?eighteen hours in udvnnce of the mail The completion of this line is of vast impor tance. It enables us to give in this morning's Herald, the interesting intelligence from the Kio Grande, one whole day in advance of the old dog-trot way of receiving news from the South. Other equally important results from this most remarkable invention, of this most remarkable age, will be seen in a day or two. The news from the Rio (Jrande is highly inter esting. It reached New Orleans on the evening of the 29th ult. by the steamers Galveston,Captain Wright, and James L. l)ny, Captain Grillin. They sailed from the Brasos do Santiago on tho 27th?one an hotir after the other. It appears that on tho 17th tilt, a large portion of General Taylor's army moved up the river for tho purpose of crossing. General T. remained at. the fortifications with about IWO men. When tho nrmy were seen by the Mexicans, on the opposite side of the river, to leave tho encampment, they approached the fort ami Gen. Aritta tent a Jlag of trucc to Gen. Taylor requesting an armistice of ti.r veekt, giving cs a reason for his request, that he desired to eommu nicate u-ith his Government. Gen. Taylor replied that hewou'd give Gen.Arista until 8 o'clock the next morning to evacuate the city of Matamoras, ami would permit him to take away the public property tinder his charge. The Hag then returned, and on tho. next day the ISth, the " army of occupation" crossed on lints ot their own construction, and the bodies of wagons caulked. The passage was made about four miles above Tort Brown. On arriving at the city, it was discovered that Gen. Arista had de parted with his forces, leaving only the mounted battery. All the mortars, and such of the military apjHtratus as could not be removed, in hi* haste to cseajic, were thrown into the wells. Immediately niter the entrance of General Tay lor into Matamoras, a detachment was ordered out to reconnoitre. They overtook a portion of the Mexicans, who were retreating, twenty-two of whom were made prisoners. It is understood that Gen. Arista's head-quarters are at San Fernando, about ninety miles from Matamoras. Gen. Taylor issued orders to his army not to take anything from the inhabitants without pay ing full value for what they took. The citizens of Matamoras were permitted to transact business as usual, with the exception of selling strong drinks. Com. Conner, with most of his squadron, had sailed for Pensacola, for the purpose of refitting. The steam schooner Cincinnati, Captain Smith, was at Matamoros. The Mary King was laying at anchor oil" tho bay, and the Augusta aground. Tho Sea, Florida, and Monmouth were lighting over the bay. The ship Ondiaka had arrived safely. On the passage of the Galveston to the Brasos, a man named Mitchell, of the McElry Guards, on board, stabbed one of his comrades, giving him a mortal wound. He died on Monday morning. The New Orleans Picayutie of the 30th,contains n letter from Point Isabel, dated the 2fith ult. It gives some interesting items. Tho writer says that Fort Polk is now a complete museum, filled with Mexican prisoners, nmles, ladies' saddles, curiously wrought leather pack saddles,huge sad dle-bags, niuskeis, drums, ordnance copper cannon balls, grape, shot, letters, and all kinds of documents, picked up on the ground where Ainpudia was encamped. Ont^ of the officers who was in the two engagements of the 8th and 9lh says, that the supper which the Mexicans, in their confidence, had prepared for themselves, and which they were obliged so sud denly to abandon, aftorded a rich repast to our tired and hungry officers and men, who pro nounced their liquors, chocolate, soup, roast beef, <.Vc., to have been first rate. It is announced that Ampudia's plate, which was valuable, was promptly returned to him. .Most of the wounded had been taken to Corpus Christi. Cnpt. Page, whose under jaw had been shot away, is in a fair way of recovery. Capt. Hooe was walking about with the stump of his right arm dangling by his side, and appear ed to be in excellent humor. ('<>1. Mcintosh who was badly wounded, was stretched out yesterday morning in a Mexican w agon, trying to read. He was stabbed in the throat, or rather down the thront in the neck, and other parts of his body, and was repeatedly knocked down in the light. Capt. McClay, who was wounded in the action of the 9th, is here, with an awfully bad chin, which a Mexican grape shot passed, shaving a little closer than was safe, as it carried with it some, of the bones and sinews. The Picayune states that the amount of money found in the Mexican army chest, after the battle of the 9th, was $16,000 in gold. The commanding General has ordered that the R io Grande ?hall be considered as closed in re* gard to all vessels bringing cargoes for merchants in Matamoras, except such as contain munitions of war.

II. The want of some system, established by law, pre scribing the mode In which volunteer* should tic received in the ?crvice of tae United States, con*titute* a prolific soui?e of delay, expense, and vexation to the inexperi enced volunteer, an 1 injury to the service. The very few young men of the country who are favored with the privilege ol a military education, are never allowed to have any command in w ar, uer to do military duty upon the frontier, without previotuly having the benefit of lour year*' Instruction, devo'ed almost exclusively to the the ory of military science?while the million* of our young men, ahvaya ready te sacrifice every personal interest at the shrine of national honor and glory, as volunteers, cheerfully hasten to the place of rendervou*. for organi ration, muster and fn?pecti?n?often without a levter ac quainted with our e*er-vnryjnj{ regulation*, or able to lo any thing for the immediate comlort or efficiency of hi* brethren in arm*?though educated and well qualified fn the pursuit* of civil life, and capable of making e? calicnt officers and aoldiera in.the courw of ? few week*' instruction, ore not allowed this brief space of time to prepare for action. They tlma hasten to the field of bat tie, without time or opportunity to ((ire to th? superior ! metal of their chivalry that tenner un.l point which a little practical institution would nave t . en sufficient to i finish auJ render invincible ; and if, under these unto. ? ward cireumstanees, they happen to commit a fault, how ever trivial, the vain glorious martinet spurns them as bad troop* ? or not as "good troops." HI. And when, aa at thin time and place, these patriotic \oluutecri have, for for the most part expended their ?.mall change, and begin to sutler the privations of fcod and rest, they apply to the 1T. 8. quarter master and sub- ' sister.ee departments, for that camp equipage and rations, to which they know thev are entitled by law, and which , they hove been assured hv the authorized public func tionaries of the Sta'e aud the Union they should receive, they are told by the U. 8. Q. M. and Com. Departments that they can isme nothing to the volunteer! until they aro mustered into the service of the United States. In this way many of these meritorious volunteers have been unable, for several davs in succession, to find either food or rest other than such as the known hospitality of the good citi/ens have kindly tendered to those whose desti tute condition could be ascertained. But their Wants are but seldom known?as good soldiers never complain. IV. To obviate this ovil, und provide for the comfort and prompt organization of these volunteers, the Major Geneial has availed himself of the assistance of several gentlemen of known business habits, axpeiieuee and talent, to raise and organise such corps, and to nllord the ,i such temporary supplies as are essential to their health and comfoit. preparatory to their being mustered Into the service of the United States V. The public spirited olllcers and citizens who have volunteered their services upon this occasion, are re spectfully notified that their services will hi no longer required, than fortho time that will be necessary to ena ble them to place at the U. 8 Barracks near this city, such of the companies, or parts of ;omp??i?t<?fi(L'Vnti'y ? r nnr.icanted riflemen a* may do already raised, and O-ssiU in their oiganization into companies aud regimonts, where they will be immediately mustered into the ser vice of the Utiitod States ? and where tney will bo fur nished with every supply to which they a:e entitled,and from whence they will be conveyed on board g-Kjd steamers, or other good vessels, to the sot of war.

It appears that in Galveston tho obstructions to volun teering, or mastering into the ranks of the United States, tho volunteers who offered themselves for ser vice on the Rio Grande, wore still greater than in New Orleans. The Galtrulon Ifrwt, of the 23d, says?and says without being correctly informed of facts : "How does it happen that in Louisiana, all voluntoers are re ceived as fast as they present themselves, while here they are rejected, ? hen furnishing tbemrelves at their own expense! and nlftilng their services wliliuut boun ty or advancn pay?" After speaking ol tho individual exertion* of the volunteer*, it sn\s: "It must be borne in miud that all these, numbering about 136, have furnished them selves entirely at their own expense, or by . voluntary contributions, so for ni regards provisions, clothing, blankets, etc.. tho United States Agent here having no supplies of this kind, or authority to pay for them." It then adds : "Since writing tho above, Lieut. Crawford, of the Galveston Artillery, lias succeeded in completing another company, composed partly of citizens from Liberty county, ns well as from Galveston, and has duly presented his men, with a muster roll numbering over 70, to Lieut. Kingsbury, as n company from Liberty countv. Lieut. Kingsbury refuses to receive them, nnd furnish them with arms, upon the ground, us we learn, that ho has no authority, cither from this Sta' or tho United States to do so. It certainly presents . ather strange anomaly, that tho commander ?' army should make a requisition for 2400 men he Hover nor of Texas should issuo orders acci I \ . t ut tHat the United States agent in this city, it his duty to reject those volunteers befort iiion is half filled. A gentleman just in fro; -, in. forms us, that in most of the middle > un tios, the requisition will not be compli. ut a draft So we shall present the strange of rejecting volunteers, and then making a din. ho same men?perhaps!" On the <ith ult., Capt. JolinT. Price, with his company of Texan Rangers, .">6 in number, and Lieuts. Guthrie and Post, arrived here en route for General Taylor's camp. Despatches from General Tayloi for Captain Price, arrived here by way of radix's Island, in the course of the same afternoon?the purport of which was te hasten his departure as much as possible, but not to trust himself by the overland route, with a very small party. Captain Price drew six days rations for his com pany on the 7th inst., and left for General Taylor's camp at two o'clock, P. M. via the head of Padre Island.?Cor pus Ckriiti Gazette. May 9. LOUISIANA. The St. Louis Legion arrived at New Orleans on tho 28th ult. The Legion is composed of eight companies, and numbers 660 man, rank and file, MISSOURI. Wo yesterday alluded to the dissatisfaction which lias bceB manifested by persons disposed to volunteer, be cautc of some uncertainty in tho order for raising the regi ment, the manner of constituting it, and who will com mand it. Sinco these objections have lieen stated, we have examined more particularly into the subject, and have satisfied ourselves, that some of the objections, at least, aro not well founded; and to others, till has been done that the nature of the case admitted. This regiment is raised under a special order from the President, and in some of the provisions differs from the general requirements on this subject. It is to consist, if we are correctly informed, of eight companies; each of one hundred privates, with one captain, and one first and second lieutenant, four sergeants, four corporals, two buglers, one farrier and one blacksmith; making in all 114. They are to rendezvous at Kort Leavenworth, and there be m ustcrcd into tho fervice by an officer of the United States. This much is imperative in the orders from the President. The companies will, before they can be inspected, pro ceed to eloct the company officers. When thus organ ized, they must report themselvos to Col R. Campbell, who will inspect them, and accept such as he shall deem competent in age, physical strength, and properly mount ed on a suitable horse, and otherwise fully equipped. When the companies lrove been thus inspected and ac cepted, they will be furnished with transportation to Fort Leavenworth. At Kort Leavenworth, when all the companies have assembled, they will be required to elect the field officers of the regiment, in conformity to the militia law of this State. 1 lie act of Congress, as" well as the instructions of the Department, require this. Under all this, the orders appear to be as definite as they could have been made, ami the precaution of inspection here is likely to secure all that go from this county against being rejected at the Fort.?

On Wednesday last. the fir*t overland intelligence from the Army o/ Occupation for the last twenty day a, leached this place in safety. Three gentlemen who left the camp on Sundry evening, or rather Point Isabel, came in by the way of Padre Island with de*|>et<-he* from General Taylor to Capt.Priee, of the Rsngers, and others. Serious apprehensions for the safety of parties who left the| camp to return here o% erlnnd, more than a fortnight since, and for others who left here for the camp an equal length of time, are being entertained by thoir relatives end friends. We trust, however, thut thay will jet " turn up" safe and well.?Corpus CSriiti Gat., May 9. A Baltimore correspondent, in describing some inci- i dents connected with the offlt'crs of General Taylor's ar mv, and the great battles on the Rio (>rande. thus speaks of the personal appearance and intrepid character of <'ap tain May,the bold dragoan : " You have seen the personal description of Captain May, given in a New Orleans paper. It *caroely coines up to the man. lie is over aix leet high, wear* hii hair long, so that It nearly reaches hi* hli>?; his beard tails below his sword belt, and hi* moustache is unshorn He ' is a splendid rider. It was this that first attracted the at- I teution of General Jackson, who, seeing him galloping along the itreets in Washington, standing in hi* stirrup*, and presenting the personiiiration of a knight of the an cient day* of chivalry, sent for him. and gave him a Commission of cornet. Ho was in the Klorida war, and many are the deeds of daring done there told of him.? He rose rapidly to distinction, and lie owe* to his *er? ice ' in that war hi* present commission of Captain. It will interest some of your fair readers to hear that lie wa* crossed in love some vear* ago Since that time ha haa never allowed hi* hair or beard to be touched by a I ar ber. Such is the story told of him. I have seen a letter Irom the cntnp at Mafanioras, with a sketch of ' Captain May making hi* charge.' It is a mott spirited and life like thing. The Mexican batteries are at work, carrying destruction into the rank* of the Americans; the second platoon of the cavalry I.as been iwept down; their hor ses and rider* are lying together, ' heaped and pent.'? May is in advance of them all. on his noble black steed, standing lip in the stirrups, his head bent forward, hi* long hair itrcaming out behind, like the tail of a comet, and his whole appearance, viewed from tba head, look ing like one of ttio*e celcstial visitant*. It 1* a most stri king and animated sketch, and give* to those w ho tec it a vivid idea ol that most gallant and brilliant achieve ment. Some of our engravers must pet aut a picture tor it; for the demand to sue it can only thus be gratified.? No wonder, from the outre appearance of C'apt. May, hi* face all covered with beard, hi* hair ftrcaming behind him, like a Camanche Indian, and his eye* glowing like a comet?no wonner that Gen. Vega "asked, \*hen tl.e Captain demanded hi* sword, 'Are you an officer}' lie very probably mistook him for a spirit from the other woi 1(1, who had conspired with the Americans to give them the victory they ha J just won against ?uch odds." Co**isrit!?cv,?A standing motto of the nativist* haa been?" We can do our own fighting and our own vot ing." It seems that *ome of them have changed their view* lately, if we ru?y judge from the fact that one of the editors of the St. Louis Jtmnican procured an Irish man to toko his place in the St Louis t>reys.

May 17, 1846. 1 hove, nt a good deal #f trouble. visited tho rump of the Oregon and California emigrants above thin, mi found thein pushing forward with till possible ox| edition. They have been crossing the Missouri river, at as many different points .is there lire ferries between here and the Bluff-i, but the largest body crossed at Iowa Point, Eliza beth town and St Joseph. I found it impossible to ascer tain the number of individuals, as no account was kept at any ferry, except of the numlier of wagons. Tlu-y have all passed the Agency of tho Iowa and Sioux villages, except 'orty-two wagonl, w hich crossed at the mouth ?f the Nishni'botna, the ruads from all the ferries lcadtng by and to this p?int, except the above Many, if not all the wagons which were to cross at the Blurt's, came down to tho XJahnebotna. partly to avoid the numerous small streams which ompt) into the Nebraska, on the north bjnk, r.nd partly to avoid the 8ioux, I'aw nee and other Indians, who tire about to make war on each other. There has been nothing like that organization which heretofore has been deemed ncccuury; as they have crossed they continue upon their long journey without stopping. There was no election of officers, no syste matic combination, no meeting even to adopt anything in common; and th" road from the Iowa village to tho Paw nee is strung with thorn li!>o some great thoroughfare in the States: their'.umbers and supplies of all kinds having inspired them with a confidence of security. The road w hich they go is said to be very good, being as weil sup plied with timber and water as uny route on the prairie, w ithout any stream to impede them until thev reach tho Nebraska The weather lias been as favorable as could be expected at this sea?on of the year, and the grass ou tho prairies has been good for two weeks past. They commenced leaving about the first of the mouth, and con tinued passing the lo*va Agsnsy iiily *i til atou t the lOtii, ?vli?n the la/ t of tho main body left that place. All haw left, and are ct least seven or eight Jays journey from the frontier, except forty wagons which were to

liave been at 8t Joseph last night; 1 saw three of them, who told me they w ere one day iu advance of thirty others, with whom liiey started from Iowa and the conn try east of it, and had been delayed by bad roads. There were even others in tho neighborhood waiting for enough to f rm i company. This, I think, willijnn xUe rear, as I could heor of no others. One hundred und seventy-four wagons has passed the agency, foi ty-two crossed above at the Nishneootna, and there are forty still to cross at St. Joseph. This will give two hundred and fifty-six wagons, exclusive of any which may have crotsod at the Blutfs ; all that have passed the Agency were ox teams, with generally four yoke of oxen to eaih team, and the emigration from the upper conutry comiats principally of families, and many of them large ; allowing five to a wagon?and ail with whom I conversed thought this a fair estimate?about 1300 souls have left these jioints. exclusive of, the num ber from Independence and the BlufTs. from which latter place I have no doubt, from all I can learn, at least from ten to twenty wagons have gone. They are all as well provided as the nature of tho journey will admit of; the Siantitv of loose stock is very great, probably double e number in the teams : including work oxen, at least 9,000 head have gone out 1 learn from good authority that nine hundred lodges of the Sioux Indians are on their woy to make war on the Tawnees, who are preparing for them ; if so, they will meet the emigrants, and we fear the next now* wo hear from them will be that the lu.'fans have murdered and robbed some of them, strung out as thoy are on the road for two hundred miles. Of the one hundred and seventy-four wagons which passed the Agency, twelve were supposed to be Mor mons, with a large lot of loose uto'-k, whiuh it was be lieved they intended to bord on the prairie and fatten, until the inuin body came up : this, however, is only coujecturo. A good deal of e > nent has prevailed on this frontier, and anions ? the .'migrants, by reports that larg- 'ies of Mormons, well armed, were on their wu 1 can MP.r <.f o excei t the abovo, and it is no lieved tl will c rnss the Bluffs, if they go at all. e Sac- and Iowa Indians stole four head of work n and n horse from a pa whilst they wero near their \ ill iges. They found the next day wnere three had beeu slaughtered; and the agent, Major Met lintock, being ab sent, four head from the government farm were givcain their place, and their value charged to account of the Indians. The horse was rocoveied ; an Indian took him from souiq fcuj s who were left behind tg drive up loose stock. When such things happen before our eye J, what may not happen when they touch the Sioux, Pawnees, 1 Chiennes, Kapnahoes, and other tribes, if they continue to advance without keeping in large bodies 1 The news from Mexico u<d not reach here in time for ! the emigration. It has had no effect upon the company j still to leave?the word is forward. If -our government i declares war and would authorize the emigrants to make the conquest oi California, they would do so ; they are ! sufficiently strong not only to make the conquest, but to retain it against Mexico. I should think that 800 able bodied and resolute men were leaving or had left this , frontier, within the last threo weeks, for the Pacific, in cluding those that had left Independence. By adding the result of my inquiries to what you will | find concerning the Independence companies, in the pa per of that place, you will have as full and complete a ; statement of this year's emigration as can he given at ! this time. [From the St. Louis Era, May 18 ] The Oregon and California emigrants have started off ! in many detachment*, tskiug with them a large number . of wagons and several thousand head of cattle. Bo- ! t ween one and two thousand have already left the fron tiers, and tbey are still leaving. It is fcarod that seme of ' the straggling companies will bo attacked by the Sioux ' or other Indian tribes. Indian Hostimties.?The Austin (Texas) Em of tin1 9th inst. learns from Capt. I. O. Race, who 1 hod just arrived from the troaty ground, near Catnanche ! Peak, that portions of the Camancha Indians were on the Canadian river, north of Red river, engaged in hostili- ? ties with the Osage Indians. These runners have in formed Gov. Butler that they would be on within twenty | days. Jack Harry, an intelligent Delaware, jnst in from the treaty grounds, savs the tribe is far more numerous than he had any idea of, although he has mingled with them for the last twenty years. Buffalo Hump, the | Chief of the Western tribe, refused to come in until the icturn of Jack Harry-, with an assurance that he shall not I be interrupted for the depredations committed by his tribe at Cartraville recently. The children stolen from that place arc at the treaty grounds. Indian News from Texas.?Capt. Rice arrived from the council ground on Thursday last?to him we are indobtod for the annexed items of Indian news. Col. I.eonard H. Williams, with a party of ten others, w.-s despatched to Pahnuca's camp on the False Washi ta ; on tne 39th April, ho sent a runner to Gov. Butler, informing him of having fouud Miss Parker, and a yel low girl, in the Comanche camp. The former was ac quainted with Col. Williams in the early and happy days < of her existence; during his stay she continued to weep incessantly. Twelve mules, and two mule leads of mer chandize wore offered for hsr : but refused by the Indi ans, who say thev will die rather *han give her up. No situation can be depicted to our minds replete with half the horrors of that unfortunate young lady's. Our gov ernment should claim her with a strong hand; the sword should be made to avenge and to liberate. It is useless to talk of treating with those barbarians, until thev are , first humbled by chastisement. The appcarance of Col Williams created considerable excitement among the Comanchcs. The young winters laid a plan to murder him anil his companions, which was overheard by a Mcxican boy, (one of the many prisoners of that nation among the Indians.) who gave timely notice to Colonel Williams, and he immediately claimed the protection of Pahauca, This chief with difficulty succeded in pacifying and restraining his niou. Dufliilo Hump ac.knowlv !ges th 't his party killed seve r.il Germans near Situ Antonio, (wo suppose at Castro ville;) be is consequently, afraid to trust himself among the " pale faces" an 1 refuses to come iu.

They have two American lads prisoners, which they refuse to bring in, or sell: one is about 11 or 12. the other 111 or 17 years of age.

OtNMAL Scott nominated for Tb* ne?t The siokncy.?The Courier C^"f( boldly to the mark, and nominates General Scot for .he next Presidency. This is certn.nly a well considered'and elective movement in lavor ol General Scott. For some weeks pa-t there has been aomo serious difficulty between the Genera and the War Department, relative to the com mand of the troops, in the projected invasionot Me*fco. This difficulty has been increasing in interest at Washington, and in bitterness also; while in importance, it has been diminishing in an equal ratio, as we received the glorious intelli gence from the Rio Grande. The fact is, while the military men at Washington, including the politicians, have been quarrelling about whe should command the army, who should have the greatest merit, and who should have the leosl blame, General Taylor himself, has been solvmy all these questions of the day, in the most effect* al, simple, and positive method imaginable. The friends of Scott therefore, seeing .die fiekl clear, have now brought him forth lor the next presidency, and the movement is certainly a wis* one General Taylor will end the American wai as he began it aad ?>ea teave General Soot n-thinR <l*e te attend to but to manage the Pro si dential campaign, and to take possesion ol.h, halls of the White House, uistoad of the lialli o; the Montezumas, at as early a period as possible So far, so good. Genes at. Gainm and the Ad*t*tstration. Secretary Marcy, it seems, has ordered General Gaines to repair to Washington, for the purnost of censuring him for his audacity in calling oul the troops and volunteers to assist Gon. Taylor, 1 should he havo been overwhelmed by the Mexi can army. It is said that he made his requiaitiot contrary to law. If the Mexican annv had madt good their purposes, and defeated Gen. Tailor we arc very much disposed to dnnk that 'he Wai Department would have taken the credit to itaell for those very requisitions which it now has tht meanness to look upon a* proper ground for cen sure on Sen. Gaines. When it was suppoaec that Gen. Taylor waa in difficulty, and when th< sympathies of the country were exhibited, abon three weeks ago, the administration organ w* ! prepared and ready, and did begin to cast con 1 <>ure on Gen. Taylor, and those in command a the southwest. But now, when the bravery, skil I and genius of the gallant Taylor, and the gallan i men under his command, have maintained ihei position and name, and covered the Amencai I arms with glory, we see the War Department | with a degree of meanness, capable only of beini I resorted to by fifty cent patchora, en leavor tc find fault, and attempt to cast cenaure on tli< men whose actions are prompted by the lughes motives of patriotism and bravetry. Gen. C^3S we perceive, has brought a motion before, th Senate on the subject of Gen. G nines; lsut. know ing the liberality of mind, the patriotism am hi*h character, which Gen. Cass always display cd\hrough life, f.om his first campaign of the las war, up to the present day, we ha ve no doubt, li< at least will do justioe to the m<rtiTos of all tho? men in rescuing the country fron'i ita perilous posi tion in the south west recently. I n fact there scemi to be at Washington, among the generals am politicians, one of tlio most terrible shakings o dry bones that we have seen in many years. There are symptoms of some p:rodigious volcanic eruption in the political world; and we have ne doubt the extraordinary skill, bravery and genius which have been indicated on the ltio Grande, by General Taylor and his gallant litdc army, will create as great a routj in Washington, as they have within sight of Mat/imoras. Et-rofean Intervention.?The Siecle, a Paris journal, received by the last steamer, contains the following observations. Speaking of the proba bilities of war on the Oregon question, that jour " If "there are any real fears to be entertained, it is in the ,.r Mexico. It seems certain that a collision has quarter of Mexico, it^ Now, we have olready ?aid*?-some most serious complications may re?ult from ?hU war-ifThc United States intend to profit of the vie torv which for them ii certain, by ineorporat ng some o( !hLyM?xican provinces. whether by annexation or any other way. England would certainly opposo this, and it is presumable (titer what M. Gui7.ot has declared,) tha our cabinet would seek to take part with Lngland (at least indirectly) against the United States. In this affair there would be a subversion of alliances and of political interests, the consequences of which are incalculable. The opinion put forth by dia Siecle, is, that of a journal of the opposition, determined either by conviction or by system, to blacken, (or misrep resent,) his adversary. We expect better things f.om tho exalted reason and patriotism of the French government, and we think it will take part neither directly, nor indircctly, for England and Mexico. Still, however, we cannot deny it Franee, like all the rest of Europe, will look upon tho fresh dismemberment of Mexico, with which she is threatened, as a grave fact. The great powers of Europe desire peace, but they will see with a kind of regret and uneasiness the disap pear cc of so vast and rich an empire as Mexico from the map of nations. It is a serious derange ment brought upon the commercial and political relations of the two worlds. It may, therefore, happen?and indeed it ought to do so ?that France, with England, Spain, or Russia, may in tercede in favor of Mexico with the United States, her powerful enemy. But tliia interposition must be friendly and conciliatory; for the entire disap pearance of Mexico as an independent nation, would not be a matter so much to be regretted as the loss to FrtJice of her ancient alliance with the United States! The supposition of a war with the latter power, for a foreign cause, or for interests altogether collateral, ought uot to be admitted in France by any cabinet which posesses the national sentiment. M. Gurot, we hope, will understand this will feel it?and the imprudcaccs committed in regard to Texas will not be renewed in regard to Mexico. As to England?it is possible she may act with lass precaution and sympathy towards this coun try?it is possible she may regard th. dismember ment of any part of Mexico as a catut belli. But that is her own business. Her interior troubles appear on the increase; and Smith O'Brien, it U said, baa the plaji matured of making Ireland quit the pacific policy in which O'Connell has so long held her. His conduct as to hia imprisonment in tho Tower, ia cidculatod on this object. CoNrriTOTKiNAL CosvBrmori?Friday, June 5.?
