FOREIGN. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 8 October 1846

FOREIGN. 1 The news by the Great Western and Cambria i, favorable for the United States ia regard to commercial affairs and our agricvltoral interests. The failure of potatoes is general, and the grain harvest iv Britain does not exceed an average. Our exportation of bread stuffs will therefore be large, and prices have risen already perhaps as high us foreign piices will justify. American cotton has also risen ia England. The political news, us might bo expected, is of no great interest. We are however always curious to see what is said abroad, particularly in England, about our civil and military affuirs. Wo here insert un extract from an article in Ihe Times relating to tho United Slates and Mexico. The intelligence just received from Mexico will increase ihe disgust witli which ihe conduct of the people of that country bus long been viewed, und will greatly diminish the sympathy hilherlo felt for them on uccouut of the ill-treatment they have experienced al ihe hands of the Amer...
