THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 9 July 1846

THE WAR. Nothing has recently occurred beyond a little naval skirmishing, to excite much inquiry concerning the progress of the war. General Taylor has hitherto done the fighting, and appears to tike nn pleasure in it, except lhal which arises from the consciousness of having performed hi* duty as a soldier. The Union does the glorification, and ils editor, veteran as he is in such an office, appears lo have renewed his youth, and writes with nil tho peculiar spirit and ornate phraseology of a sophomore, instead of writing in the sober and simple language which is the usual result of age und experience. He assumes the ollicc of ihe nulion** prophet, as well as that of chief rhetorician, and foretells nil that General Taylor and the army can and will do, unlit the Mexicans become humble supplicants (pr mercy.

The Roxbury letters are advertised in the Iloston Times, a paper printed not only in another lown, bul unother county. In reading the laws which regulate the Post Office department, one would naturally be led to suppose, lhal it was intended that the letters remaining on hand in Ihe several offices, shoutd be advertised in the newspaper, or newspapers published in the lown (or al Innst in ihe county,) where said offices are located. We say people might naturally be led lo expeel, lhat such would be the case.
