Letters of lMarque and Reprisals.-We heard it stated on Saturday last, says the Philadelphia Ledger, by an ietelligent of fleer of the United States Governmedt, that Mr. Polk was determined, in case of a war with Mexico, to make a terrible example of any foreigners not belonging to Mlexico, or parties to the war, who may attempt aggression upoD' American com inerce under color of letters of marqtre from the Mexican Government. He will give orders to the Naval commanders to treat all such adventurers as pirates, as-in reality they will be. It will be easy to uistingaish them by language, aud a few examples it is thought will be sufficient to put a stop to their cowardly, dishonest ad murderousoperations. The iexicans have but a very limited marine, and bave scarcely energy or enterprise sufficient to put ten privateers rfloat; but a war will afford a pretext to adventurers of other nations to commeace a system of robbery under letters of marque, and the best means we can. adopt to de...

N foree, w was to be under the command of Gen. Bustamente. They say the United States are sending troops. into Texas, and that they, the Mexicans. will march through Texas on their way to -Washington, without de claring war. It was reported at Vera Cruz that the Mexican Congres bad passed the bill an. thorising a loan of $15.000.000. This, however, must be a mistake, 'as Vera Cruz letters of the 4th and 5th speak or the bill as being still under discussion, and city of Mexico papers of the 30th ult. are of the same effect. But even if the bill should pass (which is not improbable - it will hardly avail any thing, being ham pered with conditions which we should -suppose would render it impossible to ob tain the money,-if indeed it could be obtained under any circumstances. The hope was, that it could be obtained in England. It was the opinion of all prominent men at Vera Cruz, that Gen. Almonte would be elected President. in which case :they supposed that war woulb be inevit :able. -...

Cheap Board.-Tn old times, living was much cheaper than it is at present. When Dr. Franklin was serving an ap prenticeship to the art of printing, he was allowed 37& cents per wek for his board. Of this he expended but about 171, being only 21 cents a day.. What he saved was laid out in books, for food for the mind. Multitudes now might save at least one half of what they expend for food, dress and equipage. Then they could have books, and also something to relieve the wants of the suffering in the world, and thus enjoy, the luxury of doing good.

nTIe SAW THAT WINE WILL CHEER THE HEART. Az-' Tis said that absenes conquors love. 'Tis said that wine will cheer the heart. But oh! believe it not; Touch not the cup, 'twill leave a smart, Which ca fant bh, forgot. The wine cnp as it passes round, Is hailed with jovial cheer, But soon, alas, is changed the sound. Th - smile becomes a tear. Too many hearts have felt the sting, That lurks wi:hin the bowl; And many hearts it yet will wring, Who heed not its control. But take the warnings ere too late, And leave the cup of wo, And seek a heter, happier fate, Than wine can ne'er bestow. Nature has g'v;--t in* plentuons streams, The beve acge of the rose, To drink the dew .that on them gleams, The flowers their leaves unclose. --Then why shonid ye not drink the same, And'leave the ruby wine, Itwill not rob thee of thy name, Nor leave thy heart to pine.
