The War Bill Passed, Signed by the Presiding Ofieen of both Houses of Congrea, and Returned to the President. PREPARATIONS FOR WAR. V^AR MEETING IN PHILADELPHIA, This morning, in the Senate, the Vice President, | Mr. Dallas, signed the War Bill. The President transmitted letters received from i Gen. Taylor. Memorials and petitions were presented, and bills reported. The House bill, making appropriations for for tifications for the next fiscal year, was taken up. j The Committee on Finance had reported an i amendment to the appropriation, assigning two instead of one hundred thousand dollars, for the fortification of Florida Keel', at Key West and Dry Tortugus. This was discussed in the Senate by ] Lewis, EYans, Yulee and Westcott. , g^The Hon. Mr. Johnson, of Louisiana, offered an j amendment for repairing forts below New Or- , leans?which was rejected. Hon. Mr. Johnson, of Maryland, proposed an . appropriation f?r [Soller's point?which was also 1 rejected. The amendments of the Finance Committee, were all adopted, and die bill was passed, as this despatch closes. The Indian appropriation bill is now under discussion, and Sevier is speaking. In the House, the Speaker signed the War bill, which was immediately sent to the President. A communication was received from the Secre tary of the Treasury, stating that the steam reve nue cutters would be completed this fall, and ask ing authority to appoint Engineers. The bill oil diis subject was then taken up and discussed by Messrs. Rathbun, Gordon, T. B. King, Holmes, and others, and it was recommitted to the Com mittee of the Whole, with instructions to amend. The West Point bill was taken up in Committee of the Whole, and reported to the House with a recommendation that it pass. As this despatch closes, Mr. Brockenborough is speaking in favor of fighting Mexico, while dis cussing the army appropriation bill. Stocks improved in Baltimoro to-day. jr There was the largest meeting ever witnessed by any one, on any occasion, convened at Phila- : delphiu this afternoon, to respond to the procla- | mation of our worthy Mnyor Swift, upon the pre- i sent condition of affairs here, and on the protec- j tion of the country. Mayor Swift presided, assisted by the Reoorder, 1 Presidents of the Councils, the Mayor of the Northern Liberties, the Presidents of the Board of Commissions, and the Chief Burgess of West ? Philadelphia, as Vice Presidents. The spirit of die meeting may bo seen by the principal resolution, winch was as follows:? Resolved, That while this meeting deeply re grets that negotiations of a friendly character ] ave failed to eirect a pacific settlement with our sister republic, we deem it a duty to make known to the nation at large, and particularly to the gov ernment, U?at our full and entire, sympathies are with our country, and that should die exigencies of the nation require it, our services, our for tunes, and our lives, are hereby pledged for the preservation of the integrity of the national uomain, the security of the lives, and the conservation of the rights of our lellow citizens, and the honor of our beloved country. The meeting was ably, effectively, and elo quenUy addressed by many distinguished citizens, among others by Josiah Randall, Mr. Pago, Gen. Peter S. Sniydi, Judge Conrad, Mayor Swift, P. A. Browne, IB. H. Brewster. Afair sprinkling of whigs, democrats, and natives. By the Last Halls. Washington, May 12, 1846. Congress has at last, by tho solemn act of both Houses, this day declared the existence of a statu of war between the United States and Mexico.? The bill which passed the House of Representa tives, last night, was agreed to in Senate this eve ing, with the exception of some few slight altera tions, not at all affecting its intent and purpose, by a vote of 40 to 2. There were several Senators who did not vote on its final passage, and those were Mr. Calhoun, Mr. Evans, Mr. Huntington and Mr. Berrien; Mr. Davis and Mr. T. Clayton I voting against it. The reasons assigned by Mr. Calhoun for not voting one way or the other upon its passage, were, that it asserted on its faoe a fact of which the Senate had not the least evidence, viz: that war exists between both countries by the act of Mexico. In this convicjon, Mr. Calhoun was sustained by all the whig Senators, except Reverdy Johnson ; and if their views of the truth or falsehood of the declaration be judged by the evidence, or rather the want of all positive evi dence upon the subject, then they are right in their conception of the matter. So far as official documentary proof of Mexico having formally de clared war against tho U. States being given in evi dence to sustain this assertion, there is none what ever; and therefore those gentlemen acted, no doubt, conscientiously, in adopting the course that they have. On the other hand, those who voted for the bill were no less actuated bv proper mo tives in their course than were the" others?for they may have been in possession of information on the subject of which the others had no. know ledge. I have said, in my.letter of Sunday last, that Mexico had formally declared war against this country six weeks ago, but that hardly any one was aware of it except Mr. Polk and his Ca binet. This was done by the provisional govern ment of that country soon after Paredes assumed the reins of power?for the success of his admin istration. as well as that of all the other chiefs there, wlio aspire to govern the country, has turn ed mainly upon the point of hostility to the Uni ted States. Paredea himself woulu be now in command of the forces on the Rio Grande, had not Arista stolen a innrch on him, and assumed the command of those troops himself. The delnoonitic portion of the Senate held a caucus before they assembled for business this morning, and agreed to pass the House bill, with the exception of whatever slight alterations might be required in the details, so as that its main fea tures should not be changed. From their elo*e adherence to this decision in every stage which it passed through, this agreement was self evident. j What next is to be done, being now in a state of actual war, is the question of questions that requires to be answered. Shall we go headlong down upon Mexico, and overrun her territory for the purposes of plunder and conquest, without making an eflort to prevent bloodshed, and all the evils attending an aggressive war! 1 sincerely hope that we will not. Of all the governments on earth of a civil character, ours is that which is, or ought to be, based uj?on the principles of jus tice ; and tho very moment that we do anything to weaken that foundation, we lose the moral forre and power of our influence with the world, and fall back upon the rotten and corrupt barriers of oppression, folly, falsehood and deception which monarchical governments have raided up for their protection against the common sense, com mon rights, nnd intelligence of the people. Had we done justice to Mexico ten years ago?aye. had we done it before annexation was completed, the claims of our citizens, which she lias acknowl edged, and a part of which she paid when she had the means, would have been long since set tled, and the country bo now spared the expense, probably, of two hundred millions of dollars in an effort to coerce her into terms to which she will never agree, but by her utter annihilation, an al ternative to which other powers may prevent us froin driving her. She has nine millions of peo ple?and to conquer nine millions of people, upon their own soil?and that for a distance of 700 miles from the 11 io del Norte to the capital of Mexico, would require a force larger, 1 fear, than we shall l>e able, conveniently, to send there.? This is not the time to reason upon all these con sequences, while the blood of the country is boil ing over with revenge and patriotism; !>"' in less than six months from now, if the war should not be ended before then, different feelings *vill l>e manifested by those who are the foremost to m>h , ujto the flfht. a matter of aec??i'y? * ? 'hull have to blocked? V*rt\ Cruz, Tampico, and th# most of thu Fti del Norte ; and in doing this, the commcrc i oi other nations will be crippled, if not ruined. It is not hard to tell what may grow out of sueh a state of tilings, should those na tions be very much interested in a stale of peace. Again, the Mexican flag will cover thousands of privateers, who will jjrey upon our commercial marine, and drive it irom every Ma, so that the disasters that must flow iVom the state of tilings into which Mr. Polk has forced the country, by hit> bungling policy, will be such as that no proper estimate can now be poesibly made of them.? Whatever the cause of this may have been, or whatever the result* to arise may yet be, we are bound to support the nation in its ware with oth er countries, and present a compact and united front to the loe, whenever he may show bimeeli* There is no additional news from the South thia evening; nor do 1 think it possible that we shall get it from the camp of Gen. Taylor very soon, if Point Isabel should have falleu into the hands of Arista, which is not improbable. Should this be so, then the enemy will post himself upon all those points where a landing might be effected, and prevent our passing over the country be tween Corpus Christi ant! the Rio Grande. The next news from Texas will decide the course the President intends to take with the power which has been placed in his hands. Akikl. TWKimr-WIWTH OOHO8XM. In Senate.

Mr. Allen moved that it be now taken up and con sidered. Mr. Cai hock hoped that at least one day of postpone ment would be allowed for the consideration of the MIL He had looked into the documents, and sew nothing In them authorizing the necessity on oar pert of a declara tion of war. Mr. Bebbien suggested that the bill could not now be considered but by unanimou* consent. And while the whig side of the Chamber were as anxious for the prompt action of Congress as the exigencies might de mand, they also wished to examine into the faota of the case and proceed with their eyes open. Mr. Berrien pre ferred that the rules should be observed. Mr. Allen celled for the ayes and noes. Mr. Johnson, of La., rose to a point of order. Mr. Manoum, with hie remarkable strength of manner and language, maintained the ground of appropriating all the means and men required for the defenoe of the ne tional rights. If we go into this war we should prosecute it vigorously, and it is bt opinion that 100,000 men would be better than AO,000. But Mexico may, perhaps, dlse ?ow these hostilities. He arguod, therefore,that we should hesitate before we declare tho hostilities on the Bio Grande a state of war. Mr. Allen rose to order. Mr. Calhoi'n asked the question. The Vice Pbesdent stated the question to be upon the second reading of the bill. Mr. Manoum resumed his remarks, and on conclu sion said hs should have preferred that the Committee on Military Affairs had considered this bill and reported upon it before it were acted upon In the Senate. He should have more confidence in the bill with the approval of the Military Committee. Col. Bknton explained that the Military Committee bed been consulting together on the subject Mr. Calhoun said he wished no delay. He should act according to his conscientious sense or duty, under all circumstances. The only requisition he asked was time. But when his opinion was made up, he never hesitated to consider the consequences. We wsnted time to consider the bearings of this question. If unanimity were desired, we should not declare a state of war where it does not exist. But Senators say that recent information makes it indispensable to have immediate action. If this be so. the responsibility is not with us. 1 regard it, under all the circumstances, hi impossible that I should go for this preamble, as that 1 should drive a dagger to my own heart, and more so. And why 1 I was not prepared to make this solemn declaration of war, when there was no war between the United States and Mexico. How do we know that war exists f How do we know that the Mexi can government will not disavow it 1 I never found any difficulty as to my course ; other gentlemen may consider expediences in regard to the course they shall pursue ?, I have but one line of policy?my conscientious sense ef tho right When my mind 3s made up, I take my position. Considerations of popularity have no influence over my sense of right. 1 should be unworthy the re spect which I nave from my countrymen, were It otherwise. 1 am opposed to making this a war, be cause it will be making war upon the constitution. It will be more of war upon the constitution than a war against Mexico. The idea was monstrous that an unau thorized state of hostilities between the people, or a por tion of tho people of tho two republics, should be de clared as an existing war. 1 cannot give such an idee my support. Let gentlemen take their own course. I know not that I shall have a single friend to stand by me. Be it so. In any over-hasty proceedings the responsibility will be theirs. Mr. J. M. Clayton *poke with a view to the amend ment of the Mil, and of making the appropriations spe cific for the Ian t or nnval forces, according to the idea of Mr. Joffercon lie was ready for any amount of means; but it was tight that so largo an appropriation of money should t e specified as to the objects of its application. He moved the reference of the bill to the Military Com mittee. Mr. Allen said the Committee on Military Affairs would report precisely the same sort of bill as this before the Senate. The Vice-President declared the question to be upon referring the bill. Mr. Allen called for the ayes and noes. Col. Benton stated that the Military Committee had met very early this morning, and had looked into the whole bill from the Hourc, according to the advice of the Senate yesterday: and had agreed upon several emend mendmcnts which were read. Mr. Manoum moved that the amendments be read, and they were read. They will be noticed as they came up. One of them strikes out the preamble, which declares the existence of war. Home remarks upon the reference followed, between Messrs. J. M. Clayton and Mr. Mangum; the former want ed the appropriations specified. Col. Benton explained, that it would bo too laborious a process now, to specify all the items of the expenditure of these ten millions?so much for the army, so much for the navy, so much for munitions, or provisions, or cloth ing, fcc., would take up a great deal of time. .Mr. J. M. Clayton wanted the bill referred. Mr. Allen earnestly contended for action upon the MIL War existed. The Committee on Foreign Affkirs had agreed to this feature of the bill ef the House. He hoped the bill would not be referred. Mr. Bebrien pleaded for the reference of the bilL Reference refused?yeas 20, nays 26. Some observations passed between Messrs. J M. Clay ton and Benton, on tho subject of the opinions of the Mili tary Committee. [Message from the Honse announcing that they had passed the bill for raising a company of sappers, miners, and pontoneers.] Mr. Allen further elucidated the voice of the Com mittee on Foreign Relations to be in favor of the unau. tilatcd bill of the House. Mr. J. M. Clayton asked if the Senator had examined the printed documents, or any documents at all ? Mr. Allen said he had examined tho MSB. documents. [Several messages from the President, in writing.] Mr. Allen.?The message of yesterday communicatee one fact to which wo cannot close our eyes. The mes sage of yesterday discloses the fact so glaringly and palpably that we cannot shut our eyes to It Mr. J. M. Clayton pleaded for time to examine the pa ne r?. Ho hoped the Senator did not wish him to go It blind. Mr. C. moved to strike out the preamble. Mr. Sevier.?That motion, sir, is not in order. a srenisH ?< holar. Col. Bknton proposed to read a paper printed in Mexi co, and in the Spanish. It was a late proclamation from the President, ad interim, of the Republic. He reed it to show that there may be hostilities without war. and war without hostilities. He then proceeded to reed an Inter pretation of the proclamation before him, a copy ef which in the Knglish he had not yet seen. The paper declares, on behalf of tho Mexican government, that as regards its relations with the United States, it may be necessary te repel force with force ; to resist aggression, and to take the initiative into their own hands of striUng the flrst blow ; but that meanwhile, Mexico will commit no act eC aggression against the United States, or the people of tho United States. Col. Benton said that this document show ed that the door to negotiation was not yst closed?that it was, on the other hand, as far as we can see, still open to s peaceable settlement ... , . Mr. J. M. Claws* oontended that by the law of ae tions hostilities were not always war. He desired to know tho grounds of the conclusion of the committee which had decided that there was war. He moved to strikeout the word* " prosecute the war," and insert " repel the invasion,^ kc. Mr. Calhoun.?Read it again, Mr. President The amendment was read. Mr. Calhoun now appealed to the sense of every Senator, whether war can exist between the United irtates ahd Mexico as matters now atand. War cannot exist neither on the part of Mexico nor on the part of the United flutes, without a declaration of war by the sove reign authority. Neither the President of the United Htatss nor the President of Mexico, can declare war Would it not be an example of dishonor, if wo should de clare a state of war with Mexico, which the government of Mexico may disavow in due time. Mr. Calhoun would have much preferred that the Senator from Dels ware had divided his motion, so that the first question would be upon the striking out the clause which de rlares war He wanted to put it to the truth of every Senator-he wished to put it to the blush of evsryme? ber of the tiody whether there is a war with Mexico ? General Sam Houston rose to say s few wor?.
