Wo copy first from lhe New York Plebeian, Mr. Van Huron's favorite paper: "For all useful purpotct, we think the present Congress miht as writ adjourn, to receive the odium of an imlignatU and insulted constituency. Il ever a measure was demanded by the popular voire, dial measure ws rcH-al of the present odious and unjust Tariff of HLWAe otily important tneamre that a Whig'Congress succeeded in fattening upon the people. We d.dexH'Cl wo had aright inexpert thai o House of Representatives, we will not suy Democratic, but h large innjoriiy of which wcro elected hv a Democratic coiwl.luen-cy, would have upproved of Mr. McKay's bill, not bornuxc il was the best hill llial could le framed, but beciuuc it was the best tlml was likely lo puts the House." s I Our hics aro now transferred lo a new Congress from this we expeel imlbint;. Here dm bull of excommuuicAiion, the ban of proscription against tho twenty-eiaht members of "llio parly" who voted with llio Whigs lo in ui in the present Tariff, is boldly, openly pul forth. Tho "odium of an imliniuit and insulted constituency," is proclaimed as the portion of the present Congress alluding, of course, to that portion who disobeyed their party mandates. They aro marked! Tlw brnnd Is applied! That mnn who Is nol preMired lo go llio full length of Free 7 We and Dirtct 'J'ux.iriun, has no business in Iho Loco Foco ranks. Ha may bo wiih them, but hu Is uot of them. Hemust make up his mind to come lo ihis complexion at last, or al onco rally under the broad banner of "Clay and Protection!" Ho is not asked to tako our word for il. Ho can sco it in llm voles of the 118 who voted ngniust ihc present Tariff in (he vote of the Loco Foco members from lids Hlate in the declarations and dcnuncialious of llicso organs of Iho parly. Wo Ihniik Iho Plelieian for its acknowledgement lhat the Tariff is "die only important measure th.it a Whig Congress has succeeded in fastening upon Iho wople." Wo have so couicndcd invariably. If one Whig muaiuro has accomplished so much Ar the country, and dono so much to lift it up from iu prostrate, languishing, bankrupt condition, what might not have been reasonably expected had wo lxin permitted to do ull wo desired, and introduce the entire Wliig policvT Tho following extract is from Iho New York timing Pott, whoso authority as a Loco Foco organ, of the first water, will lio at once universally ndmitlcd. It will lc seen thai the Tariff is pronounced a "teit measure." Let every man re-netnlwr, and wo here givo him Loco Foco auihoriiy for it, thai tho Tariff is to bo a "toil mcniiirc," in the coming cam-paign. "For or against the Tariff," that is tho question. Disguise il as they may, this is the grcal question, the people ure called upon to decide. And, let every man remember that ihoso ninlrs who voted widi the Whigs to save the present Tariff to protect American Industry and "live tlie country from Free Trade and Direct Taxation, are denounced oi foes, and ore said to bo "in tlie front ranks of our enemitt," Iho enemies of Martin Von HurenH Caa ihu hundreds and thousands who have acted with the Van Hureti . party, under thn supposition that Iheir leaders were nut Dm enemies of a Twill, longer remain where they are.

Wo Hud that wc have been iu error nil nlong during Uhj winter, in speaking ol llie Unw cralic House of Uepreseiiialives.

Such a flaring, high-hnuded outrage, added lu the scries of unprecedented movements of the Kxcculivu to bring about Annexation, has lilled men of all pnrties with alarm end indignation. That the Government is untafe in sorb keeping, must Iw conclusively settled in tho minds of all. Wo know nol what hour inny bring us information of a conflict between our forces in the Gulf and thoso of Mexico. Or, if by prompt explanation and counter movements, Ihis dire result is averted ; whal guarantee havo we that (he Fxecutivo who has dclurmind nol to n'laudon his ilciigns, oven if the Senate refuses to sanction his Treaty, if we run rely Uhiii Ihe declarations of the Mndisouian) will not, y some new outrage, sumo more gross usurpation, plunge into dillicuhies, from which poacenble and honorable ex- tricnlion will be impossible ? Wo have none. If ihe post flf- rds any criterion by winch to Judge of ihu future, we need be surprised at nothing; we may anticipate ihu worst, with nn assurance lhat il can hardly surpass sober reality.

Wo havo Iwen misiuken in our estimate ol (ho man. Tlie country will bo dinppointud, and a verdici (hat must fix bis doom, politically i-wiiking, wdl go forth when this letter is generally rend and understood. A base lowing lown lo tho dark spirit of slavery a miserable truckling lo tho mean and wicked are the characteristics of this letter. en. Cas is mistaken ill his cslimalo of Iho inli lligenco of lie people, their love of icure and devotion lo the Union, and lieir attachment lo rihl and honor. His ambition has played false. He hns sliped lie wrong card, and has incurred lishunor without adancing in ihe loan, tho ends kept in view. He declares thai lie is favorablu to "the immediate annexa tion of Texas lo ihu United Slates." He gives no reason for He shows no necessity for it. Ho declares no advan tages lo be gained by il. He knows (he could not lie igno- tiit of the fact) lhat jmntcdiofc annexation must produce in- sliuit collision with Mexico, unless that power is overawed iy Ihe superior strength of the United Stales, nud is without hoc of foreign aid. Hu knows lhat immtdiate nunuintion cnituot be accomplished without a gross violation of tho faiiti of llie nation and an uller diiregard of our treaty obligations lo Mexico. Ho knows that wo must stand dishonored in Iho estimation of tlio enlightened and Christian nntioiis of the world, by urging iho mailer n.)ie(uiider existing circuinilaaces. Yul, hu is m Invur of immediate nnne-taiion. Hul, he is satisfied "lhat a majority of the people arc ui fa vor of Annexition." Where is tho evidence T Jlasithccn Icmoudcd by iictilmit f Have the press of dio country urged ilf Hns it liccn demanded by Iho people in their primary meetings and assemblies T Was it agitated among the peu pie, and did they commenco its discussion T Or, was not die idea started by John l ler, without tho knowledge or Ihe pcoplo, to iho ninaxcmont ol all ( even Iho Representative aud Senators at Washington city, with a few exceptions f I Ins not tho announcement of the designs nnd purposes of the Executive, convulsed iho country lo its very centre, and cal led forth a voire of condemnation anddisapprobalion, loud, clear and palpable, as Ihu thunder of tin skies T Is il not ovident lhal a majority, a vast majority of the people aud iheir Representatives, nro entirely unprepared for and opNis id lu ihu Movumffnt f Is II not inqioriaut llinl they shoultl tie consulted, nud their wishes clearly understood, before a ques tion of such magnitude is decided 1 Is il so rertnn lhal all tho threats of Iho North ran be silenced, and all the strong uvidence of outbreaking hostility, lie suppressed, that thero can lie no delay 1 Is it so eerlnin that the shock will mil be fatal to Iho existence of tho Union itself, that wo need not ven imuse, belure Iho consummation of ihe act t Or, is Ihe Union of so little value, thai it does not mailer how soon il is torn into fragments, and Ihe lis,ht ami gHry of iho American Republic quenched in gloom ami darkness T Is annexation of surh imminent importance lu the welfare, thn peare and well- being of any section of llw couniry, lhat dvluy Is fatal nml ruinous i When, where, how, have tho pcoplo shown that Ihey thus regard il f At what time, in what maimer, to what xtenl have a majority of llio people declared themselves In favor of immediate annexation T Wo seek m vain for an anwer. Il is not in Mr. Cass' letter, it cannot he given. When such a man as Gen. Cats, under circumstances such as now exist, stoop to for lily himself and to give pluutibilily nud currency to his own views and declurnlions by empty, hollow adulaliou of (ieneral Jackson' the conviction is fnrcod homo that lm is al heart a hollow, canting demagogue, tin- worthy of confidence or respect.

Il seems that General Cast saw something in a Prilish periodical that was extremely "nefarious." It was an article iu Fraxier's Magaxine, going lo show that a war with die United Stales would bo a InVssiiig to mankind. Admit ting all he contends, that tho article was a "nefarious" one, whnt does It amount tot Fraxier's Magaxine is noi unknown ia the literary world, but we have yet to learn thai it is con sidered the organ of eithor the Radicals or the Tories of Enr land. Gen. Cass considers annexation alt-important, we are THE FEDERAL NATIONAL CONVENTION Mcels next Monday, iu ihe city of Kaliimoro. Wo have not been able to arrive o I any other conclusion than that Van Iliiren for President, nnd Johnson for Vice President wilt tc llie ticket presented to llio remnant of the Loco Foco Free Trade party by Ihis body. There may mid probably will Ihi any nmuuul of discord and difficulty, and il is nol impossible thai they may adjourn tcilhuut making nominations. We can ardly ln-licve. however, that ihey will fail lo fix umm candi- laics, Mr. Van Huron may decline: but we do not think he will ilo lhat, at this lain period j as il would evidently be con- udercd the wurk of necessity, not cliotcc. If Mr. Van Ruren cannot secure a nomination, Richard M. 'Johnson will stand not lx-r.it nnd lie has goncou lo Halliimire to play his own nnwlcdged his readiness to put up with anything or nothing, as might suit ihu cunveuieuce of hts friends, has undoubtedly made him soiiicwh.it of a favorite widi Vnn lluren nnd his friends. We do not llu'uk that Cass or Stewart stand much Jiancc. 'he Tyler men will nomiiinic John Tyler, beyond nil dnuhi f, us we expect, Vtm Htiren secures Ihe uomiiinlion of llie 'golar Loco Foco Convention; and ho will not give up iho track lo tiny man, if his friends do not rniiqiel him.

It w ill require a very strong effort lo prevent ihe Southern men from breaking loose, and uniting on Cullioun or some oilier friend of Annexation. The correspondent of the New York True Sun, gives the illowing rumor. We give it for what it is worth; and lhal is not much: The oiinosliion to Mr. Van Huron among a portion of ihe Democratic iiiemlwrs of Congress is so strong tli.it they hnve held caucuses wlicrc arrangements have tieen mnde in case he ouht succeed in gelling the nomination, lo iinmedialely issue call for a Southern Convention in be held ul Nashville, mm.. With Gen. Jackson for presiding officer, nnd n Texas raudidalo will then bo nominated and run ul all hazards." QUITE COMPLIMENTARY ! "The times arc sadly out of Joint," the Globe thinks, now thai he hears some of his Loco Foco friends, telling him some things, and expressing some opinions lhal look vastly like those, we havo been accustomed lo find in Whig pnpers. Tho Sinlesman will tw npt lo come to tho same conclusion before it is many months older, if ihe Loco Foco press generally, express themselves with llio same candor lhal characterizes ihu production below, from tho Missouri Reporter, ediicd hy Mhadrack Perm, one nf the ablest Loco Foco odiion of the Wcsl, although ho could not slnnd Prentice, wheu lie published Ihe Louisville Advertiser. Wo must correct one error Mr. Penn has fallen into. In supposing that the editor of ihe Statesman has abandoned hi "Itard money doctrinet," he docs lhat worthy injustice. The Statesman sings dumb on the currency question now in order lo quiet the sods and Imr-monize (that's the word) tho pnrly, hul lie will break out after A while, when he gets his cue from Washington, in fine style, about Iho abominable Hanks nud Hank swindlers! Hear Mr. Peiin, however, mid see if you can recognize any lineaments ol Ihc original, in ihu picture he presents : Some eighteen months sinro, we saw Medary eV Co., urging the prostration of nil banks, and denouncing nil Democrats who did not go with litem hs traitors. Heliuviug lhal die Democracy of Oino could not succeed on such issues, we ventured to suggest the proprieiy of carrying out the promise of bank reform, which was made preceding the election, and hinted lhal lue parly would bo overthrown, if ihe Legislature khould act on the suggestions of Medary At Co. The nrlicle wo atluitu lo, was re-published and very extensively eirciihit-ud in Ohio. It was token lu Medary and he was requested to give il n place in the Statesman but he lieeumc enraged, nnd swore he would not attack Cut. Hcnlon! who, by the way, was nol mcnlioniMl in it. The Lcgilnlurc assembled and mi at tempt was made, by Medary, itytuglnri nud Mi-Nully, lo iiiako iho party take ground against ull banks nud banking, and go for "the exclusive hard." The wind ntfirsl, seemed lo set iu lhat direction, the country Iwcame aroused' Medury Jit Co, were forced to relrogradelo sidleu down, and pretend lo lie honest. The ignorant blackguard of the Statesman has turned traitor In ihe principles he professed is now pursuing llio course, in reference to the currency, which we advised him lo purine yet he has the impudence lo charge us wiih treason to democracy ! We do tint pretend lo say llio editor of the Slutesmnn understands the nature of tho controversy in Missouri. We should feel thai we were doing him injustice lo insist on his competency lo delinu die principles of tho party to w hich he professes lo belong. Yet nu has been vain enough to undertake lo lead, tuid will never lorgtvo us for exiting, in tbo mildest possible manner, his incapacity uud charlatanry. If the ( rliio Slilcsman ever contained a decent, argumenta tive article, it was from the pen of some contributor riot from that of tlie editor.

Dear Sin: In onswor to vour inouirv. whether 1 nrn f'avontble to tho immediate annexation of Texan lo tho United States, I reply tlmt I am. As you de mand my opinion oniv oi una measure, and briefly tho rcoHoiiB which influence me, I shall confine myself to iheso ixjjntfl. I flliall not dwell upon the policy of uniting coterminous countries, shunted liko ours and Texas, with no marked geographical feuturo to divido them, and with nnvigahlo streams penetrating tlio territories of both ; nor upon tlio common origin of tho people who iimutminem , upon their cummon language, manners, religion, institutions, and in fuct, their identity as a branch of tho In norm family. Nor shall I urge the material interests involved in the measure, hy the free intercourse it would establish between tho various sections of a vnst country, mutually dependent upon, and supplying one another. Those consider ntiorni aro bo obvious, that they need no elucidation from me. But, in a military pointof viow, annexation strikes inc as still mora important, and my mind hns been the more forcibly impressed with this idea from reading the able letter of Gone nil Jackson upon this subject, which hns just como under my observation. With the intuitive sat'Bcitv which makes tmrt of the character of that greut man and pure patriot, bo has ferween tho uso which a European enemy might make nf Texas in tho evontof a war wiih tho tinned Suites. A lodgment in that country would lny : open our whole south western border to his devusta-' lions. Wo could establish no fortress, nor occupy any favorable position ; for the immense frontier mny, in a vnst many places, he crossed as readily as a mnn passes from ono part of his furm to onother. The ndvnntuges on active enemy would enjoy under such circmiiiUnncon, it requires no Bagacity to foretell. Theso considerations recall to my memory nn nr-ticlo which inn do its nppearance just before I left uurope, in a leading lory periodical in hngland, which is understood to speak tho sentiments of a powerful party. This is Fritter's Magazine: and a more nefarious articlo never issued from a profligate press. It ought to bo stereotyped and circulated iron i one end of our country to the other, to show iho designs which are in agitation against us, nnd to tench us that our safety in that mighty contest which is coming upon us, is in a knowledge ol our danger, and in & detcrmi notion, by union, and by a wisoj forecast, to meet it, and deleat it The spirit of this article is sufficiently indicated by its title, which wns, ! -a war wuri tue uniieuiau?sauiessingiomiuiKin(." I cannot refer tn it nt this moment, but must speak of it from recollection. I have often been surprised it has not attracted more attention in our country, its object was to provoke a war with the United States, and lay down tbo plan of a campaign, which would sooneat bring it to a torlunato conclusion lor hngland. I ho basis of this plan was the organxa- tioti of tho necessary black force in tho West India islands, ana its debarkation upon our southern coast. Tho consequences which our enemies fondly hoped fur, in such a case, but with entiro ignorance of tho true statu of tlio country, wcro foretold with a rare union o! philanthropy and hatred. 1 wish 1 had tho number at hand, tn cull sonio choice passages for your reflection. Tho result was to be tho destruc tion of tho southern States, llie mm or depression ol tho others, and tho dissolution ot this'great and glorious confederacy, on which tho last hopes of freo- om through thu world now rest. What muro fivonible position could be taken for tho occupation ot English black troops, and lur letting them I ooso upon our southern States, thnn isuf-ftirdcd by Texas? Incapublo of residing in the e-vent of a war between us and Knglund, she would ho tnken possession ot by tho latter, under ono or tnouier oi those pretences, which every pagool her tistory furnishes, and the territory would become tbo l.'pot n hen co sho would carry on her operations a- gamst us, and attempt to add a servile war to the other calamities which hostilities bring with them. lie who doubts wheiher this would bo done, has yet to I earn unoiiicr trait in thu annals ot national an tipathy. It would bo done, and bo culledphilanthropy. hvery day sntislics me more and more, that a ma jority ot the American people areinlavorof annex ation.

Wabiii-iqto.i, May ltith, Tho Sennto closed their Kxecntivo session a few niiiiutcs before ciht o'clock last evening, havinp; devoted tho dny and tho two daya previous to tho culm 1 deration of a proposition to remove tho injunction of secrecy from Uio Treaty and the Executive documents which accompany it, some of which have boon submitted since tho IVcnty mado its appearance, relating to tho movement of our troops towards the Texan frontier and the ordering- of a tlcet of vessels off Vera Cruz. The nows, which is now of ficially communicated by tbo removal of the injunction of secrecy, has created a deep feeling in the city, as it must in the country. All parties, not bent upon tho acquisition of Texas at all hazards, regard tho conduct ut tho executive not only as unexampled in tho history nf tho (iovorntuont, bul as meriting tho severest condemnation of tlio American People. 1 bo discussion in the Senate appears to have been of tlie most animated and sometimes of the most exciting character. The Hcnators instruction to sup port 1 exas at all hazards appear to be lost to ovory other subject, and to defend their propositions with a zeal that sometimes borders upon madness. Tho main question apjwars not to havo been reached as yet. The discunsion last week was in reference to the conduct of Mr. Tappan. This week three days hnve been occupied in removing the injunction ot secrecy from Uio treaty and documents. The tup; of war" now begins upon Ue treaty itself, and to day the Hcnato are in Kxccutive session upon the main question which it is tbo wish of Uio majority in Uio Hens to I believe to kocp before lhat body until disposed uf. The treaty will probably bo rejected, and nut laid upon the tablo as some have wished in order to procure Uio more speedy despatch of Uio question. 1110 Resolution naming a day oi adjournment lias not been acted upon in the Honnto for Uie reason that it is doubtful there tthat day will find tho Ben- ato in a condition to adjourn. The Executive busi ness hns recently accumulated greatly. Air. liuchanan, it ia understood, has made a speech favornbto to tbo annexation of Texas in the Henato, and Mr. lion ton lias icplietl to him. Tho Ohio senators arc against it, and also Mr. Wright, of New York. 1 his hns been Uio run ot tho debate among tho Democratic Senators. A letter, it is ha id, will bo publisl-od in tho Globo to-morrow from Mr, Cass in favor of Uie annexation of Toxos, AnvERTisinu. The following remarks, from the Wheeling (Vs.) Times, may be read with profit by our merchants who do not advertise, fur thoy are full ut umnl pmeilcul srnso t MA friend remarked tho other day to 11s that a business lhat is not worth advertising is not worth doing. Thero is much truth in tho remark, but truth does not seem to be appreciated by most of our business mom Many men think lo cense advertising is economy, that it reduces expenses; that if tliey have but lilllo business to do it is not worth advertising. Is advertising leas useful tnnn insuring ? Is it less uselul than a sign? Is it less cssenlinl than a good business stand? Wu think not. A man does not buy goods to keep them on hand. If ho did, it might bo well to insure without advertising. Again, advertising is liko a travelling sign. No business man will h.-sitnto to piy;Ofurasign, where ho would never think of paying half tho sum for advertising. The ono is a sign scon only by those who pass iho store, and can aro tho goods lhat aro for sale as well as tho sicn. Tho advertismcnt is a comprehensive sign tlmt comes under tho eye of hundreds who will never seo the sign over tho door, yet somo pretend lo arguo that becauso some men have done a good business without advertising, advertising is unnecessary. Thoy might as well arguo that because somo men hnvo made money without industry, industry is 11 11 necessary Hon.

IRELAND. The Irish repeal agitation and tlio government on-ilcavor to effocta its suuoression aro airain occuov- ing a. large share of the public attention. The Easter Term of tho Court of Clueen's Bench in Dublin, ii win do rcmomuorcd, coinmonced on tho Kith of April, and on that day tlie Crown aorved llio traver ser, with tho usual nolico, that Uie Court would bo moved for iiidgmont on the following Friday, alto the allotted four daya had elapsed. Tho counsel fur the traversers entered a motion for a new trial; anil on tho Kith, Mr. O'Connell supported the motion by iiiiiih an mnuavu, in wmcn no acciarcBinat ne is not guilty ut the conspiracy laid to his charge, and that the omission of tho names from tho special jury list was tho ofloct and result of design and contrivance, lo prcjudico him on his trial. On tlio 17th, O'Con-ncll'a atturney, Mr. Pierce Mahony, riled an affidavit to tho aamo elfect Tho Attorney Goneml. on this courso being pursued, determined that the charges conuinco in tno aninavils should he met in the lull-cut possiblo manner; and for this purpose required nllidavita from ovory person in any way cunncctcil with tho preparation of tho jury liat. Tho affidavits entirely rebut all actions of fraudulent dealing or corrupt suppression with which tho government officers hnvo been so froely charged. On Thursday morning, Mr. Whiteside opened his motion fur a now trial. Whon this inlerminnblo motion shall have been disposed of, the Crown will move that sentence bo passed, and then tlio traversers will (it is boosted) rm-sert "that privilege in talking, if possible, for the remainder of tho term." So that, if they aucceed in this stratagem, and if Ihe Court sanction it, ther may not be called up for judgment uutil tlie first day of noxt term, the &!d of May. Meanwhile tho repeal association actively continues its deliberations and collections of rent. At a meeting on Monday, Mr. O'Connell Intimated his intontion, as soon as Uio prosecutions wore over to bring forwsrd his plan fur the renewed agitation of repeal. The lend-ore of tho cnuso, ho obsorved, would eertainly, in his opinion, bo sent to goal, but government wuuld nevertheless fail in the object of these prosecutions, if Ihey railed in damping Uie repeal agitation. Ho then exhorted the people to peace and perseverance. FRANCE AND ALGIERS.
