A Military Governor' t BalL The iMritn bark Cub* will leave this port to-mor m for New York, and I a rail myself of ths oppor. faulty to writ* you a ihort communication, although there is nothing of particular importance to apprise yo? at. K very part of Yuratan ia in a itate of lethargy ? ? ^complete stagnation ; and we resemble a people (tumbling among the graves of our ancestors ? indeed, I might say that we are doting on the surface of a vol cano, were It not for the fact that there la not suBsient combustible matter to explode among the native popu lation; yet every one inquires, "What Is to be the end of these thing*)"' We are governed by men, not princi ple#. and should a popular governor come into power, ttke Santa Anna party may be sustained a few months bager. Still dissatisfaction is the order of the day, and any leader of ability could revolutionise the State in a fortnight. We have twenty-six vessels in port, and yet the cor morants of the government swallow everything, and the people are worite oil than when our commerce was limit ed to a dozen vessels. This extraordinary accession of eemmeree is, however, owing to the war in Europe. Mauy are speculating on the contingency of a great rise in logwood ; the current prioe now Is 7>? rial** per qmntal. There has lately been discovered in th? Ulterior of this 8 (ate an extensive arrangement, not to say conspiracy, for enticing the Indians to the seaboard, and tben ex f ertibg them to the south side ot Cuba, bat I believe those implicated will fail in the enterprise, as all the fo reign Consuls of that island have been apprised of the movement. Our government here, as you are sware, it a military one, and the Governor a very extimable man. On New Kenr's Day nil the resp?ctable foreigners c*ll?d at his house to present their ?alutationi, among whom was your correspondent; and in the course of conversation relative to tbe policy of the supreize government, he re marked that his conrcience was now his gui>le, whien, to as who were bcqusinted with him, seemed worthy of notice. He gave a splendid bail in the eveninir, which, as the phra?e is, went oil to to the entire satisfaction of every one; but as a description of all the circumstances would only be a repetition oi tne same subject a thousand times dilated upon in your journal by & more graphic pen than mine, it is unnecessary to bore your readers with it or occupy the space. A. lew weeks ago a young man arrived here from one of the Windward Islands. He claims to be tbe natmal son of a former Governor of one of the States, and says that his falhwr uow resides in Washington; 4>ut as hit vsguries are haimleKs, he has been treated with much kindtem, particularly by tbe Governor, at the ball on Mew Year's night, lie is evidently slightly deran?ed, and (very exertion will be made to mtke him comforta ble until bis true position can be ascertained.

It in utttlesa to state that not half ot thin money is nestined for shipment, an t, there fore, the extortion is as clear as daylight. The same thing was done several yearn ago, an I the receipts for ?uch payment were afterward* refuted by the Governor ?f Vera Cruz, and are worth now 94 per c?ut discount, ud no buyers even at this rate. From tins scarcity it reouits, likewise, that the greatest efforts are made *o get hold of the per rent, anil this sutn is said to have seen discounter) by Mr Kaeandon, the man who virtu ally commands Moiico. It remain* now to be seen what the secret service money set aside for this purpose, can work at Washington, but people in the city fi.el confluent that their aim will be obtained. It appears that Mr. Partes has been appointed Minister ?f Finance Mr. J. Gavaz is said 1o be in prison.

The Mexican papers say "forcible" po? sesrion was taken of the territory by General Garlm l, on the 22d of November, and the laws of the UuiUd states extended over the >arae. Tbe correspondent of the .Vew Orleans See, at the ci'y of Mexico, writes that the revolution is assuming a for midable aspect in tbe South, and thit Alvarez and his lieutenants liave determined to advimoo upon Mexico. Villareal has been mnde a General by Alvarez, an<! placed at the head of tho first division of tne insurgents, and tbe report is that he is mating forced march**. Gen.

A* tbe delegate la Congrats frost Territory of Utah, 1 bare th? right to debate ?ny question wbioh may engage the attention of that bo ty, and doubtless a liberal interpretation would be given to tbe language by which ttie right of a delegate la secured to me. The praotioe in tbe House of Representatives haa given aa extensive range to debate, and sometimes mi'.tera personal have been mingled with thoae that are natiooal. That which aflecis the constituency haa bsen gens rouslv allowed to be personal to tbe npnsenta;ive, and I bare precedents which would justify ma in troubling tbe llouae, in whicb I nave tne honor (o occupy a neat, with the coi ruction of errors whiii have heen infutel Into the public mini respecting tbe administration of the governmental aflhira of the Teiritory of Utah. Toe propriety of such a course, however, appealed to me, in many caws, to be questionable, and I avail myself ot tne press to correct one or two errors, to whioh tse press has given an injurious circulation. Gov. Brig ham Young Las been supersedsd by a distinguished military genileiutu, woose appoint meet tbe bee ate has confirmed. I may, therefore byaibriet explanation, vindicate the character o Go*. Voung, without suspicion of motive to secure hi* re-eppoinlmtnt, whi h might create distrust of the tacts to which I appeal. Bj ibetweiftn section of the act of the 9th of September, JM50, ectit e l an act to establish a Cer ntorial government lor Utah, tbe sum of twenty thousand doilaie was appropriated to tne Territory, to be applied by tbe G .vernor an! Legislative Is fembly to tbe erection of suitabi e puol'c bu ldlugs at the stat of government. Cuat ?uin w<s advanced to Gov. Young, ;n the uiouth or Ju'y, 1851, and he has been unwarrantably cba s*d with a misappli* a tiou of tnat money. Of that accusation a very simple state maul will be an am >le refutation. On the 30th of September, 1853, Governor YoaDg rendered au account and vouchers, setting forth the txpenoiture of ten thousand ihren bunired and seventy three dolors ar d forty eight cents. Oc this turn tbe Hon. Etisha WLtttlesav, First Comptroller ot tbe Tieasury, allowed eight thousand seven bun dled and three dollars and ntaety-eight c?n:s, but ditailowtd one thousand six hundred and sixty- nine dollars paid for the services of various persons as a committee and otherwise, including travelling ex )>en>es on an expedition to sole it a site tor ths seat of government. Mr. WUtUesey objected to it as an unusual charge, though in necessity must be appv rent. However, that sum deducted, the balance amounts to eleven thousanl two hundied and mnety-iix dollars and two cents, ior whioh Gover nor Young h. iCs himself ready to ao ouut. I'hn lnd'an hostilities which have troubled tue J etri tory, and other causes, have delated the completion of tte publio buildings, but Governor Young has given notice vo the Becretary ot tbe Preasury, as tbe best refutation of tne accusation against him, that he will Honor a draft at aignt, if that offl ;er of the gene) ai government will draw upon him for the unexpended balanoein hie hands. Csn other evidence be necessary to show the wan of Governor Young's assailants? Pajie s that nave botn? the character oi respectaoUlty, with intemperate zeal, have pan<leied to prejudice, oj no more substantial basis. On tbe one naut Governor Young is? represented as detiaut to the general gov ernment, thitaTetiog hostilities towards aoy gentle man tbat may oe tent. to sucked him, au 1 on the other tt e people are said to be disloyal to the general go vernment; and, in tbe imagination or zealots, armies are marshalled In battle array, and Uta i Is already a field ot blood. Captain cttaunbury, of the corps of Top* graphical Engineers of the Hutted Stats* army , who, in his exploration an-! survey or tha valley of tbe Git at Bait Lahe of Uuo, hail ample opportunity to torn a tonect estimate of the peouie among whom be *o )<iug d^elt ? ind he will not be inspect ed of partiality to Morm rni-m- in bis row >rt to hi* kupuior ifficer, which t>>?

Tr< m all that I saw anil heard, 1 deem it but simple justice tc say, Unit notwithstanding these cau-e.H ot iriitatun, a uiore ljyal ami patriotic p?ujile cannot be founit within the limits ot the Union. lliis, I think, w.ia emphatically >lmwn lu tbe promptitude anil clieerful ni'Mi with which ; hey responded to the call ol' the go verument to furnish a battalion for nervice during the , Mexican war, while in the he'irt ot an loilUu country, And on the eve of a long au<l uncertain pilgrimage into an unknown wilderness; tliey were suddenly called upon to surrender live hundred ol their beat uien to the ba tarda of a hostile campaign, and the exposure and vicis situdes or a march ol two thousand miiea a:rosa track leaH dvmrta and burning pli.lns, to tight the battlea of their country. Their peculiar circumstance* presented almost insuperable objections to a compliance with the requisition, yet not the slightest hesitation was evinced. ?'You shall have your battalion at once," was the reply of Mr. Young, "If it has to be a clan* of our elders," and in three days tae force, recruited principally among the fathers of tamiliea, w.m raised and ready to march. Here certainly waa no evldenc < of a lack cf patriotism. The mom author quatex from addresses delivered by Biigram Young, in whicti he expressed his ex aitfcd eetimation of the ooonlUutlou of the Uaitel Btates, and t e laws enacted in subordination to it, exhur ting the people to nisgiil'y the laws, and w Huring tbem toat " there is eo lav in tae Uaited States, or in tbe constitution, but I am ready to make honorable Che author then adds: ? The following language, used by (ieneral D. H. W?11h at the celebration of the fourth anniversary of the ad vent of tbe Mormons into the Valley, will show, I think, what were the feelings of the people: ? "It has been thought by some that this people, abused, maltreated, insulted, robbed, plundered, mur dered, and finally disfranchised and expatriated, would naturally feel reluctant to again unite their deitiny with the American republic. * ? * * * No wonder that it was thought by some that we would not again suirnit ourselves (even while we wen scorned ami ridiculed) t? return to our allegiauce to our native country. Kemeinber that it waa by the act of our coun try, not ours, that we were expatriated, and then con sider the opportunity we had of forming other ties, l et this pass, while we lift the veil anil shew the policy which dictated us. That country, that :onsiltuti >n, those Institutions, wer* all oura ; they are slili ours. Our fathera were heroes of tn?* devolution, un ler the master ipririta of an Adams, a Jetftrson, and a Washington, they declared and maintained their inde pendence; and un Irr the guidance of tbe spirit of truth, they fulltliled their misMon whereunto they were a?ot from the piesence of tbe Father. Why should we re linquish our interest in that country made dear to ua by every tie of association and consanguinity f ? ? ? Those who have indulged such sentiments concerning as, have not read Mnrmoni?m aright; for never, no, never, will we deaert our country's cause, never will we be found arrayed by the ride of her enemies, altnough ?he h?raelf may cherish them in her own boa >m ; although she may launch forth the thuurferhnltn of war which may return and spend their fury upon her own head; never, no, never, will wa permit the weakness of humao nature to triumph over our love of country, our devotion to her institution*, handed down to us by oar honored sires, mad* dear by a thousand tender recollections." Bncti, sarely in neither the language nor the spirit of a disloyal people. * Captain S;an?bury elsewhere say*:? l'trert charges have been widely pnbllahed, seriously ?fleeting tbe patriotism and peraonal reputation of the Mornn'ti \eadera, *< well as of tbe feeling* of the peiple toward the general government. Such doubts and ap pri lirnairnt are In my judgment, totally groundless and the charpea I believe to be either ba?e<{ upon preju dice or te have grown out of a want ot arcurite infor mation. A residence of a year in th* midst of the Mor mon community, during the greater pirt of which period I w ta In conatabt intercoru-is with ibe rulera an 1 people, nttonied much opportunity for aseerta uiog tbe real farts < f th* case. But person* who never approached the longitudes in which Utah lies, hesitate not to denoanoe the Mormon* as re be a and traitors, and by a perversion of language, attribute to (lovero<r Young a deiUnt spirit. Governor Young has never threatened op position to the general government or violence to a successor, nor have tie people of the Territory of Utah tailed to respect the ftderal lavs, rhe lan guage which has been perverted wa* tne exposition of his confidence In tbe government of tivl, and the expression of his devout ?nitiaMoa to the Pmvldenoe which rules all created thing*. He believes that if it is Uod'e good pleasure that he shall retire to private life or c^nttuus Governor of tbe Territory of Utah, disttngokhed sta'ioi In the geie>ral government, and political preeminence soMig mm will be powerlese to change tbe design* ?f Omnipotence, ud hence be baa Mid how futile it ie f?r nan to be solicitous about thai whijb men cannot oustrol. Will It be questioned thai 03d ro'ee ib tbe armies of Heavea, ud among toe in habitants of tee earth 1 Way ta*n sboo.d i; be deemed presumptuous ia Omrnor Yoaag to gtva utterance to unquestioned truth ? Nor ia it true tbat Governor Young and tbe Mor mon people refuse to com( lj with ib* requisitions of ti e geteral government, "so far even a* to uaaa mit a copy > f tceir laws, or a statement of Ueir Eublic expenditures." Ot tbe latter enough baa ten eaio already, and of tbe former it mil be auf fi ient to Bay ibat it was not their duty. Tbe federal government provide* ita o?n officer to discharge tbat and ottwr duties, aa will be seen on a petuttal of tbe law ttaelf. See 3.

[Frcm the New Orleans Bm, Jan. 17 ] Oar community wet* name what token by rarpris* Stsrday morning, at the telegraphic dsspatok announa the resignation of Pierre Sonic, tad the appointment of hia (accessor. Not that any rational individual questioned lor an inatant the expediency of thia atop, or imagined that Mr. boule eoild by any possibility ad vance the interests of the United States by a longer official aojourn at Madrid. But, aa the proverb touching office holders ? that few die and none resign ? ia fully ap plicable to the Wider* of foreignjntssions, it wan natu rally concluded that Mr. Soule would cling to hia offi:e until the cloee of the present administration, or until Mr. Pierce ahouid think proper to recall him. A spon toneona surrender of bia function* waa entirely unex pected, and sets politician* all agog t? know the why and wherefore of thin sudden change. Now it ia a very curious fact, that while we her* had not the slightest intimation that Mr. Soul* contemplated reiigning, the Nbw York IIehald of the 10th actually ann< unces authoritively that Mr Soule haa reaigned bia KUion, and will speedily return to til* United Stated, isequently, the Hmald knew and publiahed the fact a full week before it tranapired at headquarter*. and quite probably before it reached Washington. Thia ia certainly one instance of the Hxkald'h facilities for ob taining information in advance of ita co temporalis*, and proves that that journal's assumption of oracular ??fallibility is not altogether a pretence. Touching the motives wliich have induced Mr. Soule to throw up hit credentials, there in a very general be lief that be has become aisgusted with the temporiration and vacillation of the President in regarl to the Cuban question. Mr. i-oule accepted the post of Miuiater to Spain with the distinct understanding that his energies were to be directed to the acquiaition of Cuba, with this object in view, he proceeded to Madrid and took a high and somewhat imperious tone in liis communica tions with the Spanish government. It will be recollect ed that his lemtnd of a heavy pecuniary indemnity was declined by Spain. Thereupon, Mr. Soule aloaed the negotiation, and reported the tacts to the United State* govertmeut. According to the Hkrald, in doing so, he took occasion to give his views at length aa to the con dition of atlairs in Spain, and express hia convictions that if the United State h adopted a vigorous and decided policy. Ccba in less than six months would be ours. Hut as he did not desire that hia mere iptt dixit should be taken, he suggested a conference might M* held with Mr. Buchanan and Mason, where he would fully expltin bia views, and a joint report could be forwarded here of the remit. Tl.ii proposit.ou was favorably entertained, and the Osteml Conference was held. At that meet ng our rclatif ns with Spain was the leading subject of dU cuH.don. Messrs. Buchanan, Mason and Soule united in recommending that th<- government of the United States should declare, in effect. that it was useless to prolong negotiations further ? that so long aa Cuba re mained a Dependence of the Spanish crown, it would continue to bo a souroe of anuoyance and injury tu us, mid that both our honor and interest required we should either purchase or take t^iba at once. They further ex pressed the opinion that Engiani and France would offer but little, if sty. opposition to the transfer by purchase of the itlana to tne United States to far, Mr. Soule's opinions seemed to prevail, but aftera while the Nebras* a excite meat brokeoutat home; the democratic party was beaten everywhere, the coun try seemed completely sbolitionir.ed, ami the President feared that the annexation of Cuba, as a slave State, would deepen the excitement, .and would be resisted with the utmost pertinacity. Mr. Marcy sided with him in these vi? wh, and a mujority of th? cabinet were brought over Consequently, tie acquis t.on of Cuba was post poned indefinitely, and Mr. Soulo was Instructed to re turn to Madrid, and re open th<* negotat.ons for a settle ment of the Black Warrior affair. This change of front was supremely disgusting to Mr. Soule, as he once be fore abruptly closed negotiations with the Spanish go vernment, and considered that hecouid not re open them witn honor reeling himself thwarted and humiliated by the shuffling conduct of his government, he determin ed to resign. We beg the reader to understand that this ?xplanatinn belongs to the HkRau>. We have simpljr condensed its statements. It is bat fair loadd, however, that the sur mises of tl<e IltRALD hare every appeamnce of plausibil lty, and we should not be the least astonished at seeing tlitm literally verified. The I1kkai.ii sa< s that Mr. .Soule will rrturn home with feelings of hostility towards the administration, anl determined to lay the facta before the country.

[From the Hon 'real Uazetto, Jan. 20 1 On Friday morning, between eighty and ninety rxr non?, numbering among them a goolly number of iadies,, nssieted at a public lireakfaat given at th? St. Law rime n llall to tbnoe clergymen who had come from the United states to attend the anniversary meeting* held here during the put week. The reunion wan a moat pletcant one, A. F Hoijim, M.

The R*v. Mr. Kirk llrnt responded- ? Kind words were ?fm?, and there w*i no kindness like ChristUn kindness. He thanked them heartily for tbeir kind expressions towards him and bis brethren. He had seen many Christian festivals, but never pasned so n.nny days so satisfactorily before as ou this ooca eion He rejoired In the unity growing up betwmn (hriktiaL* in Britain, the United ?tatrs and Canada. The timm we-e ? uch as to call or a profound eoii?id<r?tiou i <1 ccming events. All the world eeeiued to b? coming together- <.Ml M-perstilioo* to bo breaking up ? old har riers to truth to be breaking down. The order of nature was being followed in the moral world. Ibe ground ha>l been jrepared ami sown in the autumn, autumn and wnter w?re pamed, the blwie had sprung up in the spring time, with the summer tame the ear. and the har vest itemed fa?t lipeuing for the aickle Witl reg*r-l to their progress in Canada be had remarked with pleasure iwo or 'hree things which had taken place in their leg a laton since he was last here. First, the reciprocity treaty, which hound them more and more closely togeth er creating an at nexation? not a political, which they do not ( are ahont, but a social and ccmmercial annexa tion to the United States, by means of their railways and nrw avenuea of commerce. Then there was an act in which it was declared that it was expedient to abolish all Hemlilanse between Church and ntate ? a doctrine which they coald Dot but rejoice to see adopted, since all atich unions, they held, brought the church down into the world, not the world to the church. And a third thing he bad marked with pleasure was the abolition of all feudal rights and duties. He re ferred also to Englishmen otterng to take the American mission* in Turkey under their charge and supporting their missionaries, and, when that waa declined, still contributing handsomely to their support, thus laying national priite on the altar of Christianity. A war was going on in Furope of which no one could now see the issue; hut one th ng he believed certain, that from thi* time forth Turkey waa to be reckoned as forming one of the European powers, and subjected to western Chris tianising and civilizing influences. The war was also teaching another lesson? it waa learning tbe world all the, horrors of war. It was God who sent the correspondent to the Crimea to picture forth all the terrors of this s;ourge, and the man who hereafter, for any ambitious designs, should plunge the world in war, would lie universally execrated. It was strange how men could be found in the United States to sympathiso with Russia in this war; yet there were some rucli in that country Yet lie assured those present that, notwith standing the t.rade* of some newspapers, the hearts of the Christian people of their country were Ailed with earnest sympathy for the allies and tbeir cause. He ended by enjoining on those prevent the necessity for still more earnest, constant prayer for a blessing on tbeir labors. The Her. Mr Worcester, after ? witty allusion to his b< ing " a volunteer perforce," In speaking on the occa sion, repeated a saying of an old missionary with regard to Canada long ago. 'Why," said he, " if we don't take care ana civlllte and Christianize tho-e Canadians, they will he coming down on us as the barbarian hordes from the North did on Southern Kurope." (Laughter.) What would have been the good man's feelings if he had seen what he and bis brethren had seen during the week. His fai-her wai an old school federalist who loved KngLimt as his tathtrland, and hated France and its red republicans, and its military Kmperor He must *af that in those his young days, he was dazzled by Napoleon's great ex ploits, and rather sympathised with him, an<l disliked Britain. But later in lite bis feelings had undergone a decided change, an" lie now felt his onl father was right, his lessons of the ol ! time came back to him. That was a glorious saying of Canning, " Fngland and America, mi tin rand daughter, united, they may defy the world." He rejoiced that they now were so closely allied in gn<Kl Christian works. It was a pleasing thing that on th? very <?ay of the battle of Inkermann the American misionarie* at Constantinople were aaseml'led to pray for success of the a)ii?d arms. The re*. gentleman next referred to tbe visit of a Montreal clergyman to some of their meetings, ann the manner In which he had allodetf to the fact, that t might be well to expunge Irom their school bcoks some of the expressions calculated to create in the mint's of the children feelings of ' a'red against the fa therlsnd He hoped to see that hint acted on, and those feelings of bitterness entirely extinguished. The reverend gentleman also dwelt at some length on the exploits ot the Know Nothli gs The h?art of tbe Ame rican people was thoroughly with the allies, and if there sometimes appeared In tbe rewapaper* some harsh wri tings, they must pardon something to tbe irritation rau-eil by the nnkind worl* which now and th?u cam" to them from over the water ? such, for, as ??when England and France had done with Russia, they would turn tbeir attention to the atlairs of the American Ontlnent." John Hull bad been well represented by Irving as a flfyety old gentleman always looking about o see it there wak not some quarrel guing on, or some wrong to redress, which inquired his Interference, yet very unwillir.v? that any ore should middle with hi* af talrs: and If Hrjth-r . I' natban manifested similar feel ngs sometime, i, they had but to remember frnm whom be wa? descended. It would take a tremeni oua pre< to bring rn a war between the United Prates an<l Britain Such a war, during the dispute about the Ore gon territory, was regardet wth horror by all sober men a* a specie* of parricide, and earnest prayers were ottered up tbat it might be averted, and ttio?e prayers were heard. Rev Mr. Wood (Secretary of the American Board of Missions) next responded It wa* not the first time lie bad enjoy e?' British hospitality or experienced British sympathy. At Singapore and at St Helena, and daring ten years residence in Turkey ? in all these nWce* lie had enjoyed tbe hospitality of hia Kngllah fellow countrymen ? for aa such be had learned to regard then. He wa* not the less an American at heart; but, from the relation) bin In which he bad been placed, he could not regard Englishmen and Scotchmen otherwise than a* hia brethren and fellow countrymen. And Britain and the United State* were really allied? not by a political al li*oce, such a* that existing between Britain and France ? but lor Christine object*, and among them for the antetatir n of Turkey to Christendom The happte<t years of hi* life bad been apent in Turkey, and it waa impossible to have lived there ss he had done without feeling admiratlm ami affection for the British Ambas sador, l-ord Stafford de RedcIIITb. He m ?de no distinc tion between American and Kngllsh missionariee, and tbe former bad been admitted to an andlenee with hia wbea British sabjtcts had beta denied. Be acted thus ?from a respect for the American people, partly he interest b? felt is their missionary work. Be fore the arraugement fur a proper pottal service were completed there, the couriersof tbe British emb??sy tad consulate* were always at the service of the mis sionaries. He wae a man who never committed himself to a course until after he had given the matter mature consideration. and a I way ? conducted it to a sucoessful itsue. He knew he never would take up any cause not worthy of hie country; and, having taken it up, he be lieved be wae almost certain to eucceed. Ha had pledge 1 himself to obtain freedom for Chrietiaa eoaverta from Mohammedan persecution, and if he lived and remained at hi* post be felt assured it wouli era kng be brjugbt about. No one, be repeated, could live ae he bad lived, a missionary abroad, enjoying the protection and assistance ol British authority, and not feel an affection for the coun try of tbelr forefather*. Ha had hailed the night of the red Beg of Britain In remote part* >f the world hh the herald of freedom, of civilization, and of Chrietianity, with almost the Kaiue pleasurable emotion ae Ailed hi* heart at the eight of the stars and atripea of hia own loved country. Everywhere in the heathen world the lnlasion ariea ol' Britain and the United is tat* a were working aide by aide, and band in hand. He could not but look upon the two countriea an specially rained up by Providence to spread abroad tbe light of evangelical Chrlatianity throughout the globe. Tbe reverend gentleman con cluded with fome remark* upon the present aapect of u Hairs in China. Mr. Hickky followed, raying, in the course of his re mark*. that any sympathy ex pressed in tbe I'mttdStates with the Czar, came rum those who favored that curse of their own country? negro tlavery. M. John Doi'oam. then moved the following resolu tion, which was seconded by Commissary General Robin son, and passed by acclamation: ? Resolved, That the exhibition of unity among Evange cal Protestant* atkirdeu by the great meeting* of toe i recent week, and by tbe presence of cur honored frende freiu a distance, ia not ouly to ourselves like the dew of Herman, but to the common enemy an evident tokeu of discomfiture, and an earnest of success In all our efforts in tbe cause of Christianity. Rev. l?rs Taylor, Mctiill and Wilkes, and the Rev. Mr. Krazer, hi- ? made short addresses. In tbe course of hi* remark*, nr. Taylor said there were papers on this side of the line which made tbe most of any unkindly ex pression by paper* in tbe United States, and fostered, he reg retted to see, tbe ill feeling created.

KIHST CLEKG VMAN IN TH* LB? eiBLATCBK. [l-rooa the Rochester American (whig) Feb. 1.] The battle he'ween the American party on the one hnnd, aud the Seward and barn burner allien on the other, lit* been fought "dam" passed over the Twenty ninth Senate district on Tuesday, and at the g ring down of the fun recorded his achievement*, CVsar-like, in three emphatic word* ? Ven v, vidi, viei. The majority of William 11. Goodwin, the American uotnioee for Senator, will probably exceed two thousand. Sev? rul citcumstances combined to give interest to the electior. The district is the one receutly represented by Myron H. Clark, now the toward Governor of the State. Incecd. this election *m to fill the vacancy caused by h ?? resignation. Governor Clark, at the instigation of the Weed and Seward managers in Albany, had lent himu'lt to an unprecedented trick for the purpose of preventing his own district from exercising Its just rights in the United States Senator election? a trick utterly unworthy of any public man, however weak and unscrupulous. When thin manoeu vre was defeated by the passage of an act ef the U is lature, and it thus became evidfnt that the managera li Albany could not silence the voice of the district on the 6th of February, the Governor sent his Inspector Gene ral, attended by a strong posse of experienced politicians from Albany, to carry the election at all hazards and re gardless of expeiice. Still, to make assurance doubly secure, a strl-.t al liance and cordial fusion was elTected with the Seymour democrats. It was naturally supjosed that in a dis trict where the Seward meu always had a majority not far from two thousand, and the barnburners stood next in poiul of numbers, such a coal'tion would prove in vincible. The counties wliich compose the Twenty-ninth district ? Ontario and Livingston? have no cities, or larga col lections of foreigners. They embrace some of the best territory in Western New York, and a population not surpassed, if not unequalled, in the United States, for intelligence, independence, virtue and general respecta bility. It was evident that the vete of such a district would furry with it a powerful moral influence. Gov. Kewnrd's friends felt that the result must tell upon the pending action of the Legislature. They professed to have no no d of another vote in joint ballot for their fa vorite ctn< (date, yet by their extraordinary etfort to carry this special election, they practically acknowledged thai Scwardism was on its trial In a region always deem ed nioit favorable for its succiAs, and that its defeat on such a battle-ground would prove not only disastrous, but deadly. Well, the result is before the people of this State. All who have ears to hear, know it; all that possess eyes nisy see wtat It means. The people have uttered their veroict. In the face of power, in defiance of both pro mises and threats from Albany, they have placed upon the walls of the hewsrd palace an inoription ominous .is that which It tec the infatuated King or Ilabylon in the mi. 1st of bis revels, when " bis countenance w*? changed and his thoughts troubled him, so that the joints of his loins were footed aud his knees sin .te one ag*in?t another." [from the Rochester Advertiser, (dem.) Feb. 1.] it seems to Isi cot ceiled that Mr. Goodwin, tlie c<in>li date opposed o the woe] ley barnburners in Governor Clark's district, has been triumphantly elected Senator. This result was confidently expected by a large mtprity of outsiders, an I much hoped for by many. We are rejoi.-ed at the result for two special reasons. Tl.ose who have been so lonuly clamoring about '-coali tions." and by a l-ilse scent endeavortug to lead otf the electors ft rat a sight of the true issue, have been disap pointed aud signally rebuked. The woolly barnburner a.linnce'have met tlie defeat they deserve. Thsir's was the candidate of the isms ? the administration, Seward, soft, barnburner, M tine law, anti-Maine law, sntl Ne braska, anti democratic candidate. As the Governor was elected, the candidate for the succession in the S-enate expected to w.n, especially since the anti Marnn, free soil softs turned In like the Hessians of old to fwi 11 the array. They went to battle, shouting "coali tion with the whig*,' and by the very game charged upon others, met the fate they so richly deserved. We care not for alt ?.!?''?. Such a snail trie* does not often succeed, and doubtless in this instance it was the cause of awakening the electors of the district to a just sense of their situation, and of inciting them to a proper resistance. A sterling democrat was nominated, and, as It ap pears, was sufiiciently popular to be elected mo?t tri umphantly. That he is known as a reliable and able democrat Is the best thing about it und for this we feel as if the electors of the Twenty-ninth have done the country some service. We do not desire to compare Mr. Goodwin with any of the honorable gentlemen with whom he will sit in the Senate, but it will be found that the district will have no cause to feel that tbey have not as able a repre sentative as sny in the State, and we congratulate the electors upon such an advantageous exchange. [From the Albany Argus, Feh 1 ) The new Senator from the Twenty ninth district is a clergyman of the Methodist denomination, who has been actively devoted, up to the present time, to the duties of his profession, lie la the first clergyman who has ever occupied a seat in the legislature, and hia advent com mences a new era, so far as relates to the class of men who are likely hereafter tn be our lawmakers. Indeed, he may almost be said to be the first clergyman who ever held sny civil office in the State. The first c institution of this State, adopted in 1777, contained the following section. "And, wheress, the miniaterf of the gospel are, by their pro'xssioo, dedicated to the service of G')d and the cure of tools, and ought not to be diverted from the great duties of tLeir function; therefore, no minister of the gospel, or priest ef any denomination whaaoever, shall, at sny time hereafter, under any pretence or description whatever, be eligible to or capable of holding any civil or military office or place within tbis state." 1'recisely be same section was contained in the con stitution of IM2, and remained a part of the fundamen tal law until the adoption of the preesnt State constitu tion in 1MB, when the ineligibility of clergymen to office was remove! and tbey were left in the same posttien of other cltitenr in this respect. Very few instances have occurred, we suspect since the adoption of the present constitntion, in which they have accepted any office, however unln portant. We have no case of the kiod in our recollection, except that of Kev. Mr. Luckey, who was chosen by the legislature to the office of Regent of the University, which he still holds. Public opinion very generally acquiesced in the pro priety of ahrngating the constitutional provision whioh excluded elergj men from office. There ia nt ground of principle for making a distinction between them and < tber professions and occupations in respect to political rights. All cititfDS should stand upon tbe same level in the eye of the constitution ami the law*. Whether the practice of office holding on the part of the clergy, should It become common, would tend to ele vate the standard of character in the sacred profession, or to recure for ?t increased respect, veneration and in fluence among the people, may well be doubted. W? may add Hint we hear the Rev. Senator elect from the Twenty ninth district "r?ken of, even by those who tjposed bis electien, in favorable terms of coniraenda | tion in respect to b'th intellectual and Christian charac tr.

Although bat ? very narrow atrip of land, yet the country abound* in fertile well watered valley*? ii eminently adapted for ntock breeding ? otters great facllitiea for a lively trad* with Mexico, and ha* a *p*ecy prosperity to hope, even without the mighty agency of the Paclttc Railroad, and the bidden treasures of ita mountains. From California, an well ait from Hon?ra, all the valleya of the country ara perfectly accessible by conveyance* of every kind, good wagon roada leading into anu out of It. The ciunate ii temperate and healthy, avtldlug alike the extreme heat of Lower !?onora and the rigor of the north, and the fer tility of the roil in * itieme. The country pomnami every element of prosperity, anil our governneat would, Instead of a thinly populated and now apparently worthless territoiy, find a populous and flourishing one, ii it weie not for the curaa ot tbe north ern States of Mexico, the Apaches? who, since 1843, have committed upon the small village of Tuxon tie pre i u lions to the umobnt of of $11,000. Tuxon is the most northern and largest village ot tlie new territory, am) counts a population of perhaps 500 souls. It li an old bprnish presidio, erected as a safeguard against the A pa i net, but now almost eat1 rely useless, and in a state of decay. A number of no cilli-a soldiers, however, are still kept there, under command of a captain, whose princi pal business Is to ruin as much as possible the inhabi tants. Understanding that the rountry was about to pass Into American possession, be has taken bold, with, nla officers, of certain mission lands, properly belonging to the Mexican government, but cultivated, aince time immemorial, by the citizens of tbe town. These men are rudely thrust from what the possession of yearn has led thim to consider their own. Mr. Captain gets a grsnt from Mexico, dated a few years back, and v 1th his minlonM will appear before a future American Land Commission, claiming a tract of land, no more his, in fact, according to the recent treaty, than a sllvar snuff box of which a Maricopa Indian robbed me the other day. Tbe limit* of an ordluary letter would never permit me to explain to you the villainous imposition* under which tbe poor but industrous people of this ter ritory are suffering; it would not express their feelings simply to say that tliey are glad at the prospect of a change of government ? they are in ecstacies about it. Tuxon Is distant from ileruioslllo about 300 miles, anl 400 from (>ii ay nuts ? n good road, as I said, .lending to all parts of tbe b'onora department. The old presidio of tubac, with the mission of Tuma cacori, (three miles from Tubac,) Is situated to the souib> of Tuxon, f4 tnilet distant from that town. Besides * few ragamufAus yclept soldiers, but few whites are living there, although there is a {oodly population of "tamo Apaches " Rich lands in a state of neglect surround t:.o presidio. Th< mission lands of Tumacacori are indus triously worked by a company of Germans and on? Frenchman, although a misfortune happened to the asso ciation a tew weeks back, difficult to repair and discour aging to even the stoutest energy. Ihe Frenchman, a Mr. Chouart, and Mr. Neninger, ono of the Germans, went to T?xon on business, tjgethar with Fome Mexicans. A few days afterwards ths corpse* of tbe two foreignui* and three Mexicans were found thiee leagues from Tubac, speared by the Apaches. A monster, I,ieut. Carlos Osta, commanding Tuoac, refused to tbe remaining partners their request of an escort to go and bury tlieir companions, but sent out on the fol lowing day a paity, without knowledge of the settlers of Tnnucsrori, with order* to burn tbe live bodies, to bury tho bones of the three Mexicans, but to leave tne bones of the two foreigners. Carlos Osta is the name of this amiable and humane youth. Our only consolation Ik, that all these pentlen.en, tbe Captain ot Tuxon and hi* officers, and severul other military authorities of tlie*? northern presidios, are dissatisfied with toeir respective situations, and tali of throwing up their commission* and remaining here as American nit /ens, with their ItU gotten gains In whleli case it Is pretty evident they will soon learn that they cannot with impunity outrage all decency and humanity white clothed a little brief authority, ar l afterwards quietly enjoy the fruits of unpardonable brutality and unwarranted assumption of power.
