The association the names Toliese two gentlemen tie democratic ticket for governor and Lieut. Governor brings to our recollection an occurrence which took place several years ago. In 1833, . Whitco Rab was a senator from Monroe and . Dunning represented the same county in the House. On the 70th Page the journal the House for Liat year May be found the following proceedings Quot . Dunning presented a communication in writing from John Ketcham Monroe county complaining certain grievances therein named Quot which was read when Quot . Brown Moved that uie same be rejected Quot and the ayes and noes being requested thereon by two members Quot it was unanimously rejected. The Reader will be astonished to hear that the Quot communication Quot thus rejected contained charges against senator Whito preferred with a View ejecting him from his seat. The language however in which these charges were couched was so objectionable that the course above recited was taken. It was thought by Many members that . Dunning ought to be expelled for introducing a document the character the Quot communication Quot and a motion was made to that effect though it does not appear the journals the House the reason Why it did not appear As we understand is that . Dunning begged so hard and evinced so much feeling the subject the matter was passed Over without further action and the Resolution i drawn with the understanding that it should not be placed the journal. We know nothing the truth the charges preferred by . Dunning against . Whitcomb and Only give the above recital facts to show tic positions now occupied by these gentlemen. At that time . Dunning was a zealous whig and . Whitcomb had but recently deserted the whig party and United himself with the democracy. They Are now both progressive democrats and travel the state together to retail out their democracy to the people Marion volunteers. We understand that about ninety volunteers have enrolled them.= in the company now raising in this county. Only three More and the company will be Complete when they will present themselves to the governor for acceptance. This company has been raised principally by the patriotic exertions j. P. Drake who has been elected Captain John Mcdougal 1st Lieut., and Lewis 2d Lieut. A general meeting the citizens the county is called to take place in Liis City next saturday for the purpose adopting such measures As May seem proper in response to the proclamation the governor. Mysterious. There was an infant discovered and taken from a Well at the East end our City yesterday morning. From circumstances which have since transpired it is conjectured that the child a male was deposited there some four five Days since and the water from the Well has been in constant use. We Are Una lie to give particulars Coroner Smith not having made his report. The affair was in a course investigation when our daily went to press. Preaching. The Rev. T. R. Cressey Columbus o., will preach in the Baptist Church m Liis City next Sabbath at half past 10 clock a. M. A vindication gentleman named Mosely in a letter to the new Orleans a Ayune gives the following explanation the Cavise Why volunteers have not come Forward More readily in Texas to Jom Gen. Taylor. The people Texas for several years past have been very much harassed by reported invasions the mexicans. Tie end has generally shown these statement ii to be false and the result has very naturally been to create a feeling distrust in re Ard to mexican news. I was in Houston when the info Nii Tion that Gen. Taylor was surrounded reach ii there. It was not official and was not altogether credited and those who did credit the account also said and Khoii Ijelu that Gen. Taylor could m hip them very easily. Y must recollect that in Tex is the opinion is that i Itsuo american troops ought certainly to whip 10,0fl i mexicans and 15,000 if necessary and this belief is based upon the fact its having been done in that proportion Over and Over again. But the principal reason for the supposed apathy was the fact that no orders had come from the government and no Means were at hand Tourn Ishtie necessary Supply until like orders Are Given. The corporation and merchants Houston were willing to Advance the necessary Means but it was thought Best to await the Call the executive. Companies were forming in various parts Texas awaiting the action the executive and j May rest assured when the Call is made Texas soldiers will be at their Post. To the list attorneys now in attendance tie supreme court Given in yesterday.? paper we now add the names the following gentlemen Viz John s. Newman Williamson Wright s. Parker James Rariden d. D. Pratt C. Nave j. S. Harvey j. S. Reid g. Holland f. M. Finch j. Hanuka w. Quarles s. A. Huff. Prophecy and fulfilment. Henry Clay in his patriotic letter against the annexation plot in 1844, used the following prophetic language Quot a under these circumstances if the government the United states were to acquire Texas it a Ould acquire along with it All the encumbrances which Texas is under and among them the actual suspected War Between Mexico and Texas. Of that consequence there cannot be a doubt. Annexation and War with Mexico Are the result furnishes another illustration . Clay s Wisdom and foresight As a statesman. Would that this warning voice had been heeded. The Louisville journal the 2.3d inst. the following which we commend to the attention his excellency the governor this state. We hear nothing Hli raising volunteers discretion is said to be the better part valor. Kentuckians to arms 1�?about 10 clock last night an expire is arrived Here from the governor with orders from the War department and at 3 clock this morning Liis excellency the governor in company with Thos.

The Energy and purpose which thus distinguishes the venerable chief magistrate will cause hundreds our Young men to flock to Encampment and fill 11 then inks which Are not Complete in con scene nos the increased number men required to constitute a , wednesday june 3, 1846. Oct the following paragraphs Are extracted from a letter Gen. Felix Huston dated port Hudson May 10, 1=546 i do not feel much anxiety about Gen. Taylor s . I think he will lose More horses than men. I cannot to link with Good generalship the mexicans can defeat him. I have not the highest opinion the material his army and he has less Force than i thought he had but i will Gamble it they do not whip him. They will annoy Hirn and he will find it hard to Graze his horses and May have to eat a few but if the mexicans attack him at any place where their Calvary can act Twigg s Calvary will ride them Down like sheep. These do Quot Chapp orals stick in my Craw As soon As i heard the regular officers talking about Quot Chappory Quot i thought charge Uncle Sam with forty millions for Quot i it puts me in mind Quot Ever Glat a Quot and every place where three Hundred baggage wagons Cai get along has some a hard name. My old boys Green Fellows just like those who Are now going from now Orleans never heard Quot Chap vowels Quot but they soon Learned to beat the mexicans at their game. They did not mind Quot Bush whacking Quot Quot in ski thickets Quot Quot prickly pears Quot and common things like swamps and Quot under ,&Quot and thank god they never heard the fact is an american Volunteer army composed to clerks and loafers mechanics and fillers Farmers and Flat boat men Bac woodsmen and City dandies can fight any people any ground and from Daniel Boone Down to the present time they have beat indians and mexicans in All kinds Brush and bogs Only excepting Quot Everglades Quot and there is a great mistake about men. I hear people say Quot we must have some the old texan mexican and Indian fighters they Are the boys. Those who say so do not probably know that they were mostly raised in Mississippi and new Orleans and a great Many Vliem As shabby a looking set Fellows is i Ever saw but they look to the Prairies and Musket to tickets like newfoundlands to a fresh Pond. We had no Quot Chapp orals Quot when the boys whipped the mexican cavalry across the Rio Grande and drove off 80,000 mexican cattle. They were nearly All from new Orleans. Men raised like those in new Orleans can be soon made officers and Good soldiers but they must not be Trammel led and too much annoyed with the Mere manual and straight lines that will do when there is time and Leisure not now.

Form tote new York journal pm Merce. As we Are upon the subject we will state a few facts which we gather from an intelligent american merchant who has resided at Matamoras for eight years. The distance from the nieces to the Del Norte is about seventy five the Banks both these Rivers is a strip Good land extending fifteen Twenty Miles each Way. The rest is a worthless Barren. Matamoras is healthy tie yellow fever never appeared there More than in new York and so it is through All the Interior Mexico. The Del Norte has Many bars so that Only vessels very Light draft water can go up to Matamoras. Above it is navigated by shows for a Hundred Miles. The distance from Matamoras to the Gulf is Twenty Miles and to Point Isabel something More. The Point is a poor place to Laud merchandise As a cannot come within a mile the Shore. The distance to the City Mexico is from nine Hundred to a thousand Miles. A Small mail is transported the whole distance horseback at the rate sixty Miles a Dav and occupies sixteen Days. From Vera Cruz to the City Mexico is four Hundred Miles Over an excellent Mackay amazed Road which was built by the Spanish government Long ago and is now in Good repair. Besides this there Are no made roads in Mexico except in the immediate neighbourhood the Large warns and even coaches pass from matamors to Mexico Over a Ravelero id passing through till varieties country and with g eat labor.

To wonder whether judge Wick May be included in Tho number applicants for an appointment in tha army a report w current at new Orleans some Days ago that the Catholic priest Mullen had advised his flock that they should not enlist to fight against their Church in Mexico the report Drew out a contradiction from the Rev gentleman which the following truly apostolic Al Paro graph is the conclusion.

Much has been said against those members the hons representatives who voted against the Bill providing for the p Ose cution the War with Mexico and there Are some Maic who do not hesitate to Chairge them with being to Rie traitors. From the urgency the Case the Bill was rapidly passed by the House with out afford ring members an Opportunity to express their opinions. It is therefore but just hat we should suspend opinion As to their motives in voting again the Bill until we know the Roa by which they were act tufted.

I had no objection to vote any supplies necessary for the Relief our army but i regard the very first line the Bill As a palpable misstate irent fact. I believe the mexicans upon the Rio Grande have been acting strictly in self defence and if they have made a Manly resistance to Gen. Taylor they Are to be honoured and applauded for doing so. Without now calling in the Mode by which the mexican department Texas was converted into a state our Union i do deny that Gen. Taylor since he advanced beyond the nieces has been neither the soil the United states that Texas. He has been and was at the last accounts in the mexican department Tamaulipas and it is there soil Lii to blood has been shed Tho War has not been commenced by Mexico but by the president the United states without the authority Congress and Vav without any necessity. It was not required by any sound policy and it was totally forbidden by the Constitution the United states by a regard for Justice and by International comity and Good after entering into an argument to show that Texas had no right to the country beyond the nieces and no right to convey the country Between the nieces and tie Rio Grande . Severance says Quot i have another objection to the Bill. It virtually authorizes the president to Ronalie requisitions militia to be marched beyond the limits the United states in violation tie Ortho poloian.
