Who can doubt that at this juncture any Effort to tii spirit and to Stop the Volunteer movement which is culled upon to save our soil from blood our soldiers from destruction and our Flag from the Dishonour of defeat is an Effort to All intents and purposes traitorous our War is altogether righteous j but if it were a wicked War still the Plain dictate of humanity and of patriotism would to to bring it just As soon As possible to a close. Now what is Tho Case no Man has yet denied that we Are aggrieved by Mexico. No Man can read or. Sudell s despatches without feeling that to have Boon most foully aggrieved. No Man with an american heart can read the news from the South without feeling that we have been so outraged that All farther Mere discussion would be cowardice and disgrace. The people arc As unanimous about this As a people can be. What , can be Tho intent of the intelligencer in its Long article of saturday and of other Kindred whig prints in going out beyond the line of their party warfare to stigmatize this our War sanctioned by an almost unanimous Congress As Quot a president s War Quot and to proclaim to the Volunteer without one syllable of attempted proof that in Rushing to meet the flex icons to is Only helping to violate and break Down the Constitution of Tho United states what a near ii Inhat they s sustain these Pri Ourse they caly for if they did its co vase is Onward so gnat has been the demand for Fulger s Olosan. Or All Healing Balsam and it Haa Given general satisfaction to those who effect by reckless and random misrepresentation is it not we say in the View if moderation and forbearance substantial treason against the United states one apology a miserable one can Ilone be imagined for such a course. It 3 the party madness of the moment. But his apology the Quot intelligencer Quot Studi Lusty rejects. It gives utterance to its atrocious sentiments out raging at once Rell known facts the legislative act Iii of the government and the deepest feelings of the people while loud pretensions to moderation and forbearance Are at the very moment on his lips. Professing that for fear of embarrassing the administration in the conduct of the War it will now withhold an investigation into the conduct of the government it yet hurls convard one accusation alter another without stint forgetting Only to say one single word about its proofs. It thus thrusts into View an elaborate hypocrisy of calmness at the very instant when the Only possible palliation that can be imagined for its Manifest Folly is the Over wrong lit of the hour. pronounce this forbearance sheer affectation. The intelligencer says nothing because it has nothing to say. It proves nothing because it has no proofs to offer. We undertake to say for Tho administration that it challenges the most rigorous investigation not at any future time but note into its whole conduct c our mexican relations. asks no Justice at the hands of the Intel Gencer but it defies in the strength of its cause All the misrepresentations which the malignant duplicity of that journal can thing to by s in such of Iliev ten defied and held to the proof they would at least Virji to offer some roof. They cannot look to Tho Coj try for sympathy in Thi course for Congress almost unanimously repudiates it and the people trample with scorn under their feet. Making due allowance for that insane fanatic which prevents the now York Tribune from being True to the Constitution and for that utter moral blindness which prevents the courier and enquirer from being True to any thing what explanations can we find or imagine for the recent Laboured argument of Tho Baltimore Patriot advocating Privateering against our Commerce and the recent allegations of Tho Intelli nicer that Congress and the executive in recognising the bloodstained invasion of Mexico As an invasion have broken through the Constitution of the United states the Only possible explanation of such assertions is to be found in the fatal madness of whig partisanship which unrestrained by a discretion like that shown by most of the whigs in Congress rushes on to assail the administration just when and where every honest Man of every party feels he must support and sustain it in its honest Effort namely to protect the country and to right its wrongs. The Issue of this procedure on the part of these journals cannot to doubtful. All omens fore ode it. They Are doomed. So far As they represent their party it is doomed. Quot the gods first Madden whom they would look into the intelligencer of saturday last you will there find it urged upon the Reader that the Dominis Lvalion has Quot wickedly contrived Quot this War with Mexico that the War was deliberately begun by the executive of the United states in an usurpation of Power which the Constitution has denied to it that both houses of Congress in recognizing the War As caused by the act of Mexico have Quot approved an a sustained pretence Quot that the two houses have together recognized a constitutional the usurpation of the War Power by the president that Quot Congress has now made the president a Monarch if to was not substantially one before Quot that thus no Man can Tell How a the president May prosecute Ali and that in passing their act As called for by the president Congress has undervalued the intelligence of the people. The first feeling with which any mar reads All this is indignation but tha soon gives Way to sheer astonishment and wonder. What con the Iniel Ligi pet from it Grant that the journal has so league itself with foreign interests and so imbued itself with foreign sympathies As not to see the turpitude of such language. We know that some of Ita friends apology for it. Still the question comes up what end is to be gained by such a course be it observed Tjit Tho article containing All these Quot to Strous allegations does not pretend top Forward one single argue hot to Susta them. Be it observed that these assertions involve Congress including the mass of the whig members together with the executive in one sweeping and wholesale condemnation. Be it observed too that the article appears at the very moment when the intelligence of a new shedding of american blood by the invader is on the Wing toward the Capitol. The whole heart of the country is roused and stirred anti then the intelligencer seizes that instant of Patriot to ardor to utter words Wick Shock ail patriotism and which again the Honor and impeach the Wisdom of All departments of the government and that without attempting to show even a Badow of reason for its lion a. The Only effect which the Quot can Hope to produce is to Check the movement of the Volun Leem. Can any other purpose be imagined and is not this Parpoe at this crisis a a buried into invent. The. Slater Enis which i we hav a sustained by any pret and resting upon assert ii with Tho settled. Refuted in the quoted above Iceon argument 1 wholly at a is and the in of a patriotic people Gen. Zachary Taylor there is a Geiger Al desire to learn something of the history character and Ili fictions of general Taylor who stands so conspicuously before the whole country As the commander of the imy of occupation we extract from one f our exchanges the following sketch. It Ivill be found interesting. Gen. Taylor entered the army in 1808, immediately after Tho attack on the Chesapeake and has been in the service of his country from that time to the present. Having entered the army As a lieutenant of infantry he had risen to the command of a company at the beginning of the last War. For his Gallant defence of fort Harrin on the st september 1812, president Madison conferred upon him the Brevet rank of major and he is now the oldest Brevet in the army. Iii 1832, he became the colonel of the 6th infantry with his regiment he went to Florida in 1836, where he was always Foremost in danger. On the 25th of december 1836, col. Taylor at the head of a detachment of about 500 men composed of pans of to 1st, 4lh and 6lh regiments of u. S. Ii Fantry and some Missouri volunteers m about 700 indians under Alligator Sam Jones and Coa Coo Chee on the Banks 0-Ke-Cho-Bee. This Battle was sought by the indians for the Day before the engagement col. Taylor received a dial Lenge from Alligator telling him where to find him and bantering him to come on col. Taylor desiring nothing better immediately pushed on at rapid March t the expected Battle ground fearful that the wily Indian might change his purpose the indians had a Strong posit thick a the Petrous Imp they present no material Lor a sustained or elaborate attack. state them ii enough their exposure is their shame we will leave Tho intelligencer to Seth with its own party in Congress Whethe they have sanctioned a violation of tin Constitution by the executive and i will leave to stand or fall by itself the assertion that the president has Quot wickedly contrived Quot this War with Mexico Ince we find the intelligencer stating in the continuation of the very same article that Quot the president himself has Promisee negotiation whenever Mexico shall he willing either to offer or to receive propositions of glaring self contradiction is humiliating enough but Elf contradiction in statements already oppressed with the odium of re Reancy to one s country is an abyss of humiliation from which we would if possible from very Charity Rescue even the intelligencer. Acne rat Taylor in his tent. A correspondent of the Philadelphia inquirer writing from the Brazos de Santiago says Quot on the 26th, a Friend of mine visited Gen. Taylor in the Camp of Point Isabel where he had established his depot for stores in the army. On Landing the scene presented was quite a wild one and reminded one of Tho accounts we have received of an Arab Encampment. There were three or four Hundred dragoons in the Camp with their horses picketed about besides an immense number of wagons mules and oxen. On stepping ashore an officer conducted my Friend to the general s tent. He was introduced to a very Plain shabbily dressed old gentleman rather Small stature about sixty year age and who looked by his Hardy Appi acc As if he had been camping out All his life. Quot this was the commander in chief of the army of occupation. He has been 38 years in service on the frontiers of of country. One of his officers remarked that Quot old As he is he bears the fatigue and privations of the Campaign better than any one under he was affable dignified and in excellent spirits. His tent was no larger and no better thai those of the other officers and his table was his Camp Chest in which he carried his cooking utensils amp a. His plates Wen tin pans and his cups no saucers o course tin Pann Ikins. A Small Supply of Brown sugar was kept in a tin cannister and not a piece of crockery was to be seen. A party of six were thus entertained in homely style and they All seemed to enjoy it the Nio ruins. We have received an Citra of the Hancock 111. Eagle with a proclamation from general Warre commander of the suite troops at Nauvoo a noun ing his determination to prevent the threatened of break against the mormons. It appears that to. Thousand mormons have already left the slate and that the rest Are following As fast a possible and yet a disposition is team tested to attack them. A mormon of near silly Yeara of age had been taken from his horse and severely scourged and attempts from be we pm Var a Ftp Mexico. Plexico Lias commenced Otte Sivc War by tic invasion of our ctr Story and the Slaughter of a detachment of our regular army within our own Bordera.

Such a Rio tie despatch supported As it is Liy the Una Iii Nous Sanction of the whole people is the Best evidence to the that we Are on All Jurs ions of a Lional Honor a United nation and that we will never Lay Down our arms in so righteous a cause until we receive full and ample reparation for this unprovoked invasion of Tho soil of in free and Happy Republic. The Only example to the civilized world of a regular and systematic form of Republican go Cru int it Berume us to Bear with the insults and oct imely of a neighbouring people torn by incs be divisions and the prey of successive military despots until the blown Compau cd , and then forbearance ceased to be a virtue. No Strong nation Ever bore so much without a resort to the Ultima ratio pentium and we can Appeal Wilh safety to the whole course of the Adi Ninis Talion towards Mexico As showing that nothing but actual War and bloodshed could induce ii finally to dissolve those tits of Amity which we had solemnly contracted Wilh our nominal sister Quot the whole has been the deliberate act of Mexico and the United states stand before All nations absolved from All blame and offering Bright example of the exercise of Thor hic i great this is which Groa and so Seldom Traci american rally pro agg re Solso of to i. Front by a Small be Quicksand rendered most impassable but col. Taylor pushed through the Quicksand and swamps in to face of a deadly fire from a concealed be driving the indians before him. The a Tion was Long and severe. The India yielding the ground Inch by Inch and then Only at Tho Point of the Bayonet after three hours of bloody contest tin indians were routed and pursued with great Slaughter until night. Thi the last stand the indians Ever made in a Large body and the Only instance in which they voluntarily gave Battle. Col. Taylor won the Day it w expense of 139 killed and wounded More than one fourth of his whole Force. Two colonel Thompson of the 5lh infantry and colonel Gentry of the mis Quot Quot a unters fell at the head of the troops. Capt. Vati Swearingen and lieu its Brooke and Carter also fell in Tho be mint. Iring the whole of the engagement col.

After his retirement from Florida h was assigned to the command of the 1st department of the army including the states of Louisiana Mississippi Alabama &c., Wilh his head quarters at fort Jesup Louisiana. His position gave him the command of the Quot army of occupation Quot but the usage of the service would have justified the government in assigning to that command either of the six general officers of the regular army whose rank is higher than his. But it May be fairly presumed that Thi High character Gallant service and great experience of Gen. T., aside from i geographical position pointed him out the appropriate commander of an Arm which was to Plant our Flag upon the Banks of the Rio Del Norte. Gen. Taylor is about 66 years of Agi is a Man of much general information and an excellent and tried Soldier a prud and skilful commander whose traits character Are a Wise precaution in providing for the hour of trial and a fearless reckless courage in Battle.

The society Vei ably demanded a Fuller relation and 1 suppose Tho corroboration of of Many doubted whether the i had really been broken. That part the Story had been amply verified.
