The Hiiiisli (iuvcrnuirnt hihI the h'ortlgii Debts to like Bi ltun People?Threat* from John Hull. (Krom the London Times July Iti ] A bulky Parliamentary patter ha< lately iappeared contaiuin^ tb>' correspondence front 18-j:i to the present day between the British Government and foreign powers, relative to the loans advanced to the latter by the subjects of this country. We hardly know with what feelings to regard this curious ledger of national bad debts and imperial applications for payment. I'ertaaps the extent and amount ot our transactions might ?U(?i?eft a sentiment of complacency and self-importance, were it not that such renown is so very easily purchasable by everybody under similar penalties. The addresses of the defaulters indicate somewhat strikingly the ehttuge of the relations betweeu the New World and the oia, siueo Western Kurope relied on the unfathomable riches of America. With the exception of the twin spendthrifts of the I'enlnsdla, and the infant monarchy of the Morea. our customers are all from the other side of the Allantio; and the appearance of any email republic on the scene, in tho character of independence, is generally simultaneous with its appearance 011 our books in the character of a debtor. A very good business we have certainly had, though a little scattered perhaps. Nothing is said in the present schedule of certain outlying debts vtbove the peninsula of Florida, but we commeucc transactions, immediately below, with Mexico, take in the constituent I'owerB of Central America, call at Venezuela aud Buenos Ayres. then double Cape Horn, and run up the coast of the ['notHo to Chili, Peru, ticuiulor. and Mew Granada. Reserving for another ocoiiHiou suras K-'ntrnl conclusions and maxims wbicU io:iv be (Induced irom the contents of this new guide to capitalists, we confine ourselves at present to the exposition of the law or policy ai? lately delivered, on a question so interesting as tbe right of foreign bond-holders to national protection Tbe conditions of this question render it possible that tbe law should be laid down once for all as n. tfuide and a precedent lor future occasions. Tbe accidental relations of tbe two States Involved, tbe temper of tbe oouutry. the general aspect of the political world, an4 tbo circumstances of tbe particular case may each and all affect any particular decision, but the judgment given and acquiesced iu at this period of It) 17, appears to be as follows That when British subject? lead moneys to foreign powers, it i.i undoubtedly competent for tbe British government, according to the law of nations, to oompel payment by reprisals or war; bat that the exertion of this right rests entirely with the government, to be determined by their view of what is best for the whole Statu, and cannot, except in {>ursuance of special compact to that effect, bu demanded by tho bondholders ou their own behalf. The whole case of the Spanish bondholders clearly turns on the iielief which the creditors might juslly have entertained, at the time of their advancing the money, as to the duty of the government to bear them harmless. If, as it has been attempted to prove, it was demonstrable from civil law or constitutional precedent, and was, moreover, popularly understood, that the British government was as much >/, In, ., Itritioh unhi-.-f in thin Imr. tieular case a< in certain others, and tl;e moneys were lent under the impression of this geucral and ultimate guarantee. there can theu bo no (luubt that the jjoverunieut could only release itselffrom t!iu performance of this duty ou condition of assuming the liabilities in question, und discharging tlio debts which it couctiived impolitic to exact. If it was expedient for the State that the just rights of curtain of iU citizens should be postponed to the general good, of course tilt State which derives the benetit, should make the compensation, and should thus purchase the privilege of Inaction whi. hi's own interests demand. The first principles, however, of public law and national policy militate against the unconditional acceptance of a maxim which would leave a State thus perpetually and helplessly exposed to the hazards of war; and, apart from the conclusions inseparable from i.uch primary considerations, it is evident enough chat such u belief as we have hypoth> tically suggested did not prevail, or could not be jusiitied At i-Uu peace of 1014 Lord Castlereagh gave public notice .hat compensation had been exacted for the Uritish holders of Krench bonds only ou special considerations, and expressly stated that when Hritifli subjects for tile future exchanged their luoue^- lor such obligations, they must understand that they did so at their own risk, unless the special sanotion of their government, had been first obtained. Aud that the necessity of such sanotion was pretty well comprehended is clear from the observation of l.ord i'alinerston, that applcaition bad more than ouce been made for it to I he governments ot which he had been u member, aud had been invariably refused.? We take it therefore as established and we conceive it is so taken even by the adrocktei of the sufferers, that the Spanisn bondholders have not u peremptory right to the alternative, protection or compensation; but that their case only just falls short ol such title can be denied by none. As far ns the two contract in;; parties are concerned, it would be impossible to make out. out acase either harder on oue side, or mor" llagitioiis ou tho other. It cannot have escaped ilie notice of any w*r*on who has n.'rused either the representations of their petition or the arguments of a recent debate. chut ttin bw of debtor and creditor is applied to States with very remarkable leniency. In ilie crane of an individual, confessed inability in not alwayH a protection against very uerious hardship; but in that of nations, it in at once allowed to preclude any trouble or annoyance. It is assumed an au indispensable coudition for the responsibility of an in lebted State that it should be nourishing and prosper jus. aud the creditors and their patrons think it absolutely necessa ry to show that it lias an incre asing revenue uud an abundant ?x< hequir. Nothing but iis annual disengaged surplus W considered liable to its just debts. Though Lord I'aliiierston avowed that nations bo indebted were, in point of fact, oniy receivers ot their mortgaged revenues in trust lor their creditors, to whose use they wkm bound iu the very lirst place to apply tlieiu. yei they are permitted to supersede by the claims of their own " puolic service," and by any rei|uirements of public or private extravagance, all honest demands upon them. Nothing is asked for until it is proved l<y llicures that eveu unbounded wastefuluuss and prolligacy atill leave an excess out of the revenue which these very advances have so mainly contribute d to create; and then, with the utmost cooluer - is this very surplus refused .>:>iom risks a lender must nectssurily incur by intrusting his money to the chamois of a foreign nation und a remote land under circumstances generally of difficulty aud danger; aud for these l-ecoguized risks a higher ainou- tof mterent than common is ordinarily taken to compensate. Uut we do think that it concerns the Common character and comtuou credit of Christendom, that the shameless dishonesty of the borrowing State I." .. YV, tut II..I now) I,.-,.I.

We are too much rejoiced at the prospect of p o*s*ation o'. this most impolitic and u?justlflal>le war. to be disponed to examine too cloaely into the motives which have led the government of tlie States to change their policy. It may lie that {'resident Polk, growing more nml morn jealous of Oenerals Scott. and Taylor, and being unable to set them hy the ears, hat. resolved to cut ihort their career of glory in the only elfuctivo wiiy. Could he himself have reaped in popul.irltv, and a renewal of hi* term of ofilee, the fruits of their toll and danger, it would have been a dif ferent matter. In that case every l'urtherauce would have been given to the war, and no reasonable overtures of penoo either mad* or listened to. Rough and Heady and the Kentucky Savnge might have worn out their lives In their country's service, and (quarrelled or not i|Uarrellnd, just us thohiunor took them, hud President Polk remained that idol of the Yankee democracy which he was four years ago ? It is nut. however, so hopilexs with Mr I'olk as It seems Of a re-election to the Presidency he haa no clianco. But he is comparatively a young man; considerably younger than either of the new celebrities who have thrown him Into ihe shade, peace be concluded now on what terms It may, half a dozen years will not elapse without a renewal or the war. I,et the ambitious Mr. Polk devote the enforced leisure with whieh he is threatened to a study of tactics. Then, wbeu the next opportunity arises, let him head new thousands of volunteers, invading Mexico for the second time. him sturdily earn his laurels, by craft, and courage, hy hard work, and occasionally by hard lighting him return scarred and careworn, and hnptlseu with some grotesque nickname, and the cup of his ambition may yet bo replenished. Ho may attain that enjoyment for which lie Is said lo laiiKiiieh. of frcttiug through (our years more of Presidential responsibilities And thus the seeds i f discord which he is accused of having sown, may at length produoe for tui ;.he fruit which lie coveted, It was some such plan an this that, must have been iu Mr. li"nion's heed whin he moved heaven and earth to get himself appointed virtual < ouiiuander in-t faief. And iu f*ot, If war did become a re^tilar system in the E NE NE States. one of thf inevitable results would b?, that all the leading politicians would lie forced to graduate In the lieIU of battle before they bid fur popular honors; just as among the red men. no aspiring youth dared ask a maiden's love, or cluiui a man's prerogatives, until he had slaiu bin enemy, and appended the reeking scalp to his waist. There is sometimes a strange ailtuity iu the predilections of races that succeed each other on the same soil. And we doubt not hut that, when the history uf America is further developed, some future Montesquieu may find strong corroboration for the theory that climate greatly iutluences, if it does uut make national character, in the essential resemblances that will be perceptible iu tliu social and political habits of races 20 ditferent, and conditions of society so remote, as the red meu that once owned the west, and the white meu who own it now. According to the Democratic llrviiw. au organ of the Washington cabinet, the territory of wblnh Mexico is to be mulcted at present, will be coniioed to New Mexico and ITpper California ; a pretty cantle of ground to transfer from one dominion to auother, yet not more 11 111 J Mexico Ciin vnrt well primr* Anil ifliwr nnv mirth ern frontier could only be made a permanent one, we sppreheiid it wi'ul.l he more easily defended l>y Mexico than tile present but this will partly depend on where the Dew boundary cf the States will be drawn, and what conditions will accompany the st ttlement. Thin new accession to their territory (he United States m e not to exact as a forfeit or accept as a oouoMston. Deeming purchase the best title, they prefer, it la said, to pay for whatever they take from Mexico. Ilow much they are to pay. or whether it is to be in hard cash, or merely by a set-olf uniiijhl the expenses of the war, we do not clearly understand, lluttlie terms which Mr. Trist has been deputed by the government at Washington to offer to tbe Mexicans are adverted to be?payment for all territory transferred; the States to become responsible for the debts due to their citizens by Mexico; aud uo payment at all to bu exacted of the expenses of the war.? Or this last Hem we confess we are incredulous. Wo are pretty sure that the settlement will bu made by u get-off of purchase money against expenses. Louisiana was bought dog-cheap lor 60,000.000 of francs, or 13,000.000 of dollars. The Mexican war has already cost the States four times that sum; and yet as bargaius go, especially Urennus bargains, Jonathan will have no right to complain. Mexico will b fortunate if the sword of the Yunkee general is not t,brown into the scale when her ransom is weighing, and some of her best ports trauierred l'orever to the dominion of her triumphant foe. That would certaiulybe a far greater loss to Mexico than twice the quantity appropriated of her inland wildernesses But to Krusp at California and the Gulf of Mexico at once would be too daring au uj/gres-Ion lor Jonathan to attempt in act the first of the Mexican tragedy. isor 18 it quite certain tuat tue Kuropvan powers wouiu beheld unmoved such un approach on thu part of the Russia of the Went to the uncontrolled mastery of the American Mediterranean. Tending the negociatiens for a peace General Soott is evincing immense dexterity in the mode In which he subsists his army in the conquered country, without drawing supplies or ammunitiou from Vera l ruz. Whatever he wants he helps hijjiselfto, and ?most wonderful to relate?(apsfer it. At JaUpu, at l'ueblr., and other places,he draws bills upon the Govern meut at Washington; and as fast as he draws, somebody, Mexican or foreigner, is found to discount them oil the spot. He thus loads his coffers with hard silver as fust us he can Ull stamp*. Strange fatality, srowning all the other wonders of this unparalleled war! Inmost otliejr countries in thu position of Mexico, this would be impos? sible for the ablest general to effect. How otten, for instance, liavu the troops of Marlborough and of Louis XIV. starved in Klanders ! For it is not merely the solvency ot the Government of the United .States that makes this possible. Marlborough and Vendome, when their soldiers had but half rations, and loss thau half clothing, could have drawn bills too on London and Turin; but where were tin) men to discount them, after the fasliiji Of the money-lenders of Puebla and Jalapa ! Thus does the greatest apparent element of Mexico's strength become her worst bane. Her abundance of the precious metals enable every unpatriotic scouudrel that has more dollar, than principle, to subsidise thu enemy's force In a more effectual manner thau the most providcut cabinet, seconded by the most enterprising commissariat, could have ever hoped to effect.
