THE WAR AND ITS RESULTS. By the dispatches of August 16th, two sister republics were still at war. Let us for a moment glance at the respective situations of each. Mexico was the first aggressor. Upon her ill starred head have descended the bitter results of an unsuccessful contest. Battle after battle has been lost. Her ranchos are deserted. Her mines are no longer rich scources of revenue. The ports are blockaded. Her rescources cut off. Her cities garrisoned by a foreign foe. The consolations of her Priests are hushed. Her temples, consecrated to the time honored religion of the catholic — a religion that enkindles a fierce enthusiasm, when the fire of patriotism burns low, that offers to its volaires tho rich consolations of eternal happiness, if they shall sacrifice their country, their property, themselves, at the altar of tho Lord of hosts. Internal revolution, a banditti, descending from their mountain fastnesses to burn, pillage, and mvi dor, so merciless, that tho frighten...
