The Ktimored Mediation of England. ?The rumor that the English government wits about :o propose a niediatioii between the United States and Mexico, has assumed an nir of more probability within a few day*, which invests it with some importance. It will be recollected that the rumor about the settlement of the Oregon question commenced the same way; and gather ed strength from day to day, until finally it was re solved into a certainty. We are informed, however, from a reliable souroo, that no offer of the kind had, at the last accounts, been made, but it is highly probable that it will be in a short time. Tho instructions to tha1 effect have been sent out to the British Minister in Washington. How this offer of mediation will be received, is a question that demands a good deal of consideration. We are likewise told that no proposition will bo received by the U. S. gov ernment unless it shall embrace the cession ol California as an indemnity for tho losses we have j su.tained in the war, the indemnity for Mexican spoliations, and a security that Mexico will re- I spec: any treaty we may make with her. Cali fornia it is well known is heavily mortgaged to English bondholders, and these mortgages would have, of course, to be provided for; and in case j Mexioo should quietlyagrae to cede that territory to us, we presume the American government would be willing to discharge the English claim upon that territory. A treaty of this nature would be in the highest degree advantageous to the United States, and would be of benefit to Mexioo herself, by im proBs-mx upon her the necessity of not rashly entering into a war with a powerful neighbor, in the false hope of European nations identifying themselves with her in such a course. Meanwhile General Tayloris pursuing lus march lo Monterey, some two hundred miles or more distant from Mauunoras. Here lie will take up his summer quarters, and await the course of events. If the projected mediation of Great Britain should be accepted he will proceed no far ther; if not, a system of operations will be carried on, that will foioe Mexicoteto a peace, on proba bly not asgojd terms for that country as might be agreed upon now. We wait tho issue with patience. We wait also further intelligence of the movements of Pared* What Has Congress Done I What Will It Do ? Congress now been in session nearly seven months, and the people naturally enquire wliHt hi? been done in tliat length of time. That en quiry is more easily answered than that in relation to wuat Congress intends doing. Three very im po tani things have be? n done. The first is the declaration that we are in a state of war with Mexico, a fact pretty well known before Congress declared it?neoond, an appropriation of about twenty-five millions o! dollar. to sustain thi? state of war; and third, the settlement of tha Oregon quest:r>n. We cannot but admit that these aie tnree very important matters; but these things have been raised and disposed of within the past month, which,deducted from the aggregate, leaves a b ilance of six months, in which nothing has been done, at least neither house have anything to show, unless it be the passage of the Indepen dent Tieasury bill through the House of Represen Jatives. With the exception of doings pointed out above, the collective wisdom of the nation have been seven months accomplishing nothing. This is something very extraordinary, even in the usual oourse of legislation, in the United States ; and it is more surprising, from the fact, that there are so many important measures before Congress, affect ing every interest of the country, the disposal of which is so anxiously looked for. Both Houses of Congress are strongly democra ts, and it is therefore to 1* expected.nt least,that teinocratic measures will generally prevail ; and It would seem that with the large majorities in both branches, there could be little difficulty in earrying through at once every democratic mea sure contemplated ; but there is a great absence oi that harmony in the democratic ranks, which characterized the party in former years, and gave it so much strength in and out of Congress. It is that want of unity, that has for this session given so much strength to the minority, and prevented the dominant party, nominally, from carrying out tho*e measure* which have from tune to time been agitated. There ap~-*<r? to be a conservative influence in both Houses of Congrtss, which cannot but lie highly gratifying to every pure patriot. This in fluence may at times prevent the passage of a really good act, but as a general thing, its existence n any political body is a guaranty tha; tho inte rests of the people at large will be better protect *<d than otherwise. In a country like thu, where two great }<?rtiee are t>o nearly equal, tho mi nority party has rights which cannot at all times txampled upon with impunity, and the fact of tbair having been ao treated at time* has pro e ired these pohucal revolutions, whioh have, almost periodically, swept over the country. We may, in a measure, attnbute the delay in per looting aud passing some of the most import ant act# before the present Coi.giess to the strength of this oonsorvative influence in both houses, and whilst nvb regret the result, we cannot bnt congratulate both parties that the oause 'is en JOht. The most important bill now under oonsiderv nan, is thai m relation to tho raising of revenue, ?ud uie alterations and modifiotttionsofour coin inercialsystem. Party lines in this case are al" most entirely obliterated, and whatever changes are made in the existing system, will be made en tirely independent of party. Tfi^re are so many, and such a variety of interest* involved in this movvmant, that it is impossible to tell what may be the result ol "the debate now progressing in the " \o mw Housa of Congr??-', but whatever it may b*, w have no f'ars as to tha effect. Those in X?SS which have heretofore required the giant ost protection, have become sufficiently e*tabli*l? i?i to *uatain themselvi'-., und we lira jjerlectlf *a tufletl that the finances of the government are In auch a condition, that any tariff that will produce a revenue large enough to meet the annual ex penaitureeof the country, will be sufficient to protect every important interest, to the extent they may require. The action of Congress in relation to the other measure* under considera* tion, will be, eventually, without doubt, aa favor able a.? th?se moet intimately interested can de sire. We allude to the warehousing and the in dependent treasury bill. Congress w;ll probably adi<>urn early in August, giving about six weeks longer time to carry these measures through. In making^hi* prediction or assertion, we give an answer to tho qiostion what will Congress do T? We hnve no doubt Congress will, before adjouru ment, pass nil tho bilU now under oon-ideratiou, but the people particularly object to the time re quired by their representative*, in perfecting plan*, which ara by no means new. but winch hive for yoara been before the publ'c, and with which every politician must be intimately ac quainted. Ther ? has been an attempt mad* Una seaaion,. to reduoe the mileage of the members. We would recommend ?n?king a tariff regulating the daily pay of members, aimilar to that adopted by se veral of the State legislatures, upon the principle of a pr^retsive reduction. MruTARY AppoiNTMK.v-r*.-Ther. appear8 t0 be n greatdeal of dissatisfaction in certain quar ters at the appointment of officers to command rue new reg.ment of mounted riflemen. The great point ol dissatisfaction is that civilians have received some of the appointments. We are surprised very much that fualt is found , on this head, because it is well known that the officers of the regular army are not sufficient to command the great mcrease there has lately been made to our military establishment. iLide* if there are men among civilians capable of perfomi ho ,dutl<,s of commanding officers, what rea tWn.,s th?" they should not have an oPPor b?nrofe SCrVin? Uleir Counlry. as well a, soldiers soirit of"10"' UUnk U confor?ls with the m^ J uUtl0nR 10 have civilians m com mand, and m the ranks when occasion requires tneir servioes. We hear, too, of objections against the appoint. wxrcff - m*' nronf .v. atter. think, has given the best proof that he is worthy of some compliment. \ try few officers of even die regular army would have und tak.n such hazardous duty as Capt. Walker d,d. As to Mr. May wo know nothing, one way or the other, except that his appoint ment is a sort of compliment to his gallant brother, who captured Gen. Vega; and wc think, thru Capt. e remont has fairly earned his promotion. If, how ever, among the many appointments that arc ne cessarily made, the government commits errors, tliey can lie remedied very soon. Let all agree in supporting the government till the war is over at any rate. This growling and croaking does not become Americans, when the i ?r w' u ??Untry " " Stak?- Th? ^cretary of War had better give those who are dissatisfied ^ hasty plate of soup," and have done with Submerged Propellers.?The vast field of ex periment and enterprise which was opened to the ingenious by the invention of submerged pro pellers, has been pretty well worked within a few years. Wc have now in the market of compe tition several of these submerged propeller.*, each with its friends, and each claimed to be superior to all others. Wo are not competent to dccide on their respective merits, and merely keep the run of them lor the information of our readers. The latest invention of this nature is one by McDo nald, and, like the others, is represented as supo nor to aJl its predecessors. By the use of this one, it is said, that a speed equal to thirty-fivv miles an hour can be obtained. This appears to bo great >petd,undiftwenty-five miles can be accomplished it will be a desideratum in steam navigation. The propeller attached to the steamship Great Britain may be considered successful, judging from Uio running time in her la?t trip. m aoxrtic Telegraph?Some person con nected with tlio press is making himself very officious in finding fault with the gentlemen in charge of the Jersey City station. Now, we have found fault with rhe operators at one station, for divulging, as we thought, news belonging to this journal exclusively; but tho gentleman in que*, tion it appears, finds fault because they will not divulge what oomes through the telegraph. There is but oue way for the operators to conduot their business; that is, to keep silent when they arts in tcrrogp ted as to tho news by the telegraph. If an officious person in not content with being de nied the information he seeks, we would recom mend the operators to put him out of their office with as httle oeremony ns possible. The tele* graph appears now to be managed in a very sa tisfactory manner. The Power op JuDOES.-We see it stated that the judges of the oourtnow having Wyatt on trial, have prohibited the publication of the testimony ti ljuter the verdict is rendered. Is this not a slight stretch of power 7 Would it not be well for the tetate Convention to take the matter in hand, and lay down some ride for tiie govern ment of judges and magistrates! m1*, Vk?A' 1110 Mexican captive general, is in W ashington.

The Campaign Against Mexico. [From the Houston (Texas) Telegraph, June 3.] * ? * ? ? The road by which Ampudia has retreated, offers no serious obstacles to the march of our army, and it is well known to many of the soldiers of Texas, who are now iu the camp of General Taylor. From Matamoras to Monterey, a distance of abeut 360 miles, the road leads through an open, lertile valley, well watered, and interspersed with numerous flourishing villages, where provisions would be found in abundance. There are ne lateral vallies filled with dense settlements, where an opposing army could be or ganised. to cut off the supplies of the invading army ? The few slight fortifications at Monterey would proba bly scarcely be defended, or obstruct the march of the army a single day Above this city, however, at tho pass of the Sierra Madre, the Mexican army might make a stand, but this pass would ofTor such advantages to our l iflemen that they would soon dislodge the Mexicans who should venture to defend it. Our riflemen could climb the mountain sides, post themselves in the crevices of the rocks, among the crags and ravines, and fire upon the ene my at their leisure The cavalry and artillery of the Mexicans would necessarily he huddled together in tho narrow pans, and would .be unable to stand against the murderous lire of the American riflemen a single day. The rugged mountain passes of the njo.-ra Madre, whic.. are considered impregnable to cavalry and artillery, of fer little or no impediment to tho'progress of rifle men, unless they are defended b> riflemen.? Tho Mexicans having few riflemen in their army conse quently cannot defend these passes against our troops. Whenever the American army has passed the Sierra Ma dre. the high road to the capital will be open before it, leading over the elevated, healthy table lands of the great chain of the Sierra, thiough highly cultivated districts, from which an abundance of provisions and forage could be obtained for the army.

[From the Houston (Texas) Telegraph, May 37.] Some of our cotem | oraries predict that the American army will have to cncountcr great resistance from the people of Mexico, if it should invade that country. We entertain no such apprehensions The groat mass of the people of Mexico huve so long suffered from the oppres sion of the landholders, that they would tejeice at any change. 1 hey could scarc.elv be induced to take up arms to defend tho soil in which they have little or no interest. It is estimated that all the real estate of Mexico is o* iied by less than 600.000 landholders, although the population of the country is estimated at 8.UOO.UOO. The great mt>s of the people of Mexico are bought and sold witn the lands they occupy; and it is about as improba ble that they can be stirred up to a frenzy of patriotism, as that the flocks and herds will lorm themselves in bat tle array to obstruot the march of invader*.
