No. 1. -As.a general rule, it may be considered objectionable for the Chief Magistrate of a Government to appear before his Constituents, in vin- dication of his public conduct, while he is still exercising the functions of office. ButjreaeraLrules admitof exceptions : and in the present mstance, lexceotion is founded in so many extraordinary circumstances, that I trust even the most fastidious advocate for political etiquette, will ad- mit the propriety of it. I will not offer a minute detail of those circum- stances, one alone is sufficient.

X i. """ FROM MATAMOROS. Letters have been received in town from the American" con- sul at Matamoras, stating that that port has been opened to ves- sels of every nation, for the introduction of provisions, by pay- ing an ad valorem duty of forty per cent. Latest phom Mexico. We learn from the captain of the sch Halcyon, from Matamoras, that every thing was quiet at that place, at the time of his departure, the 1st inst. about 3000 troops were there. 1500 of whom were well disciplined. They were waiting for recruits. The money for paying them off was daily expected. As soon as this was done, and the reinforcements had arrived-, it was expected they would commence operations. -S The army was healthy. The Texian vessels of war Brutus, and Union, had appeared off the bar, but had again left. A short time after their departure, two Mexican vessels came into port. John Quincy Adams' speech in congress in regard to the af- fairs of Mexico and Texas was highly extolled in Matamorps. It had...

j7-- -v .-- fc CORRESPONDENCE BETWEEN THE U. S. AND MEXICO. continued. War Department, April 25, 183G. Sir : Your letter of the 99th ultimo was received at the De- partment a few days since, hut I have been prevented by indis- position from giving it an earlier answer. I enclose for jrour information a copy of the memorandum of an official conference between the Secretary of State and the Mexican Minister, respecting the present state of affairs upon the southwestern borders of the United States. You will con- sider, as a part of your instructions, the declaration made by the Secretary of State, and govern yourself accordingly. It is not the wish of the President to take advantage of present circumstances, and thereby obtain possession of any portion of the Mexican territory. Still, however, the neutral duties, as well as the neutral rights, of the United States, will justify the Government in taking all necessary measures to pre- vent a violation of their territory.

that the movement of General Gaines has received the entire approba- tion of the Government. The inference is, that the Government has determined to encounter the consequences which will result from the po- sition in which it will thus be placed, in reference to the Mexican Gov- X eminent: and as the interposition on our part must have the effect of ' stirring up to actual and sanguinary" collision, the already excited feel- incrs of the Mexicans, war must be calculated on as among- the first of the results to follow. In fact, without an interference, there is too much reason to apprehend that Texas cannot be emancipated from the thral- dom of Mexico. The troops of the latter power will come down on the plains of Texas like an inundation, and we shall be subjected to the cruel alternative of standing cooly by, and with folded arms, looking on the cold blooded murder of our gallant countrymen, or of rushing into the melee, and turning the tide of battle. The feeling here is decidedly...

& From the Philadelphia Saturday Courier. The following beautiful song is furnished for the Satubday Courier - by an esteemed correspondent, who says he cut it from an Irish paper, printed at the close of the American Revolution; sixty years ago ! ODE TO. COLUMBIA. Columbia shores are wild and wide, Columbia's hills are high, And rudely planted side by side, Her forests meet the eye. ' Yet narrow must those shores be made. And low Columbia's bills, And low her ancient forest laid, E'er Freedom leaves her fields, For 'tis the spot where rude and wild, She play'd her gambols when a child. The breeze that waves the mountain pine Is fragrant and serene, And never clearer sun did shine Than lights her rallies green ; i , Yet putrid must those breezes blowr That sua must set in gore, E'er footsteps oFtr-fbreigrr-fber Imprint Columbia's shore. For oh I Columbia's sons are tkebt Their hearts beat high with Liberty".. Though deep and wide her streams that fbr Impetuous to the tide, And t...

Xt ,i sf- '' From the True American. THE TEXIAN BLOCKADE. Several editors in this city having denied the right of the Republic of Texas to blockade the Mexican port of Matamoros, and having declared through their columns, that commodore Dallas, of our navy, "will not permit the blockade of Matamoros to interfere with the trade under our flag," we are induced by an anxious wish to uphold the universally acknowledged law of nations on the subject of blockades, to preserve unsullied the character of the American navy, and to aid a gallant people struggling to maintain their independence against a despotic and usurping government, to submit to the consideration of the American public, a vindication, upon principle and authority, of the Texian measure of blockade, and to point out the course of official conduct prescribed by the laws of nations, the circum- stances of the present casej and the opinion? of our congress, and of the President, to com.

BORDE For the Telegraph. TO THE PEOPLE OF TEXAS. No. 4. The events of the period briefly described in my last num- ber, were intensely critical in the affairs of Texas. The being of a nation is, in some respects, analogous to that of an individ- uaJLThe infancy of the one is comparatively as frail and as de- pendent as the other. Texas was then in its very infancy and nas not yet reached its adolescent state; and is not in a condi- tion to withstand the shocks of a violent collision, between the civil and military departments. Governments of mature years and strength have often been compelled to yield to or be des- troyed by them. The violent and dictatorial language of the army, the prag- matic and senseless denunciations of the newly arrived volunteers and the overheated anathemas of m...

merited vengeance was deferred to Him who hath said "ven- geance is mine; I will repay." To detain him now, is to grati- fy a paltry spirit, by harrassing his person, but can answer no valuable purpose to Texas. To release him may. He is the head of the central government system in Mexico. The consol- idation of that government is his favorite scheme and is precise- ly the scheme that is best adopted to promote the favorite desire and the highest interest of Texas, the establishment of its inde- pendence. Let the federal party acquire the ascendancy in Mex- ico and restore that impracticable system there,and an acknowl- edgement of the independence of Texas becomes constitution- ally impossible. There is no power vested in that govern- ment that could assent to a dismemberment of the republic. But the sovereign power, under a central constitution, would find it equally facile and advisable, to get rid of the obstreperous re- publicans and the practical federalists of Texas, by sever...

like sheep to be shorn. To kill the ruthless soldier, who endeavors to fasten the yoke of slavery around their necks, is murder; to capture yessels laden with hostile stores, is piracy; to fight for liberty is crim- inal; to resist is criminal! Such a doctrine would cut off all hopes' of improvement from man, and league all governments to the support of every established despotism. It is the very doctrine of the Holy Alli- ance, and is condemned by every principle of justice, and by the laws of nations. These teach us that resistance to tyrants is obedience to God: that we are in no way bound to interfere in behalf of despotism, against those who are struggling to be free; and that Texas has an un- doubted right to exercise those acts of hostility which war authorizes, and which she has directed against Mexico. Our courts have decided that the United States became a nation from the time that -the representatives of the people of the colonies, declared them independent. Judge Story, ...

1 f ffdMMPtt THE TEXIAN BANNER. (Br J. Ereox, a volumeer.) Tune "Star Spangled Banner." Oh say, does the martyr-blest banner still show Victorious the star of the Texian nation, That shone so triumphantly out on the foe, Like the sweet star of hope amidst extermination, Where Jacinto's dread air was a breath and a snare From the ghosts of Alamo and Goliad's pjnre, Its signal for freedom displaying abroad, With vengeance and glory for man and for God? Oh say, shall that banner e'er sink in the fight, Beneath the dark mandate of annihilation, While tyranny, trampling on all human right, Shouts, "havoc and ruin are my exaltation?" O, no, thou just God! with victory's rod The hands of brave freemen thou lov'st to applaud ; Thou still will defend us and give us success, Till safety and peace our dear banner shall bless. Come on then, ye freemen, to battle come on, The free are returning, and swear desolation; They are mustering their bands, and in numbers alone They trust, with a cruel a...

However par- adoxical the assertion may appear, when it is said that a province containing a population of only sixty thousand is capable of sus- taining itself against a people numbering nine millions, such is nevert heless the fact. The miracle results not from the exer- cise of any super-human power on the part of the colonists, but from the prostrate and enfeebled condition of their enemy. Against any other power, their attempt would have been mad- ness, but against a people blinded by ignorance and supersti- tion, and incapable of preserving their own freedom, thejr were destined to succeed. The causes which have favored Texas nereiolore are now operating with redoubled lorce.
