I landed nt New York city teu months ago, and havo spout my lime in studying the diameter and customs of those people, and must confess thut if I re mained ten years tliu result would ho the eainc; and 1 know very little ubuut them.

Every .body 'rends the papers, and n good-humored urchin of twelve years used to rate me soundly nt Philadelphia lor our failures at Scljuiipo. The best version f Ameri can sympathy was civ. n me few days idnce. 'Wli.'ii iliu war commenced ih Turks were the weaker power, and our sympathies were uilh her. After the id liance, it was three against ono, an I our sympathies went for llussiu ; but, should Trance join Russia to morrow against Eng- land, our government could not prevent iis citizens from not only -.'ympathizrug with England, hut assisting h"r with uiHliri.il uid.' This I heard from a very intelligent man, who 1 do not think suspected my na tionality ; and I firmly believe it. In the South I spent some time upon the planta tions, nnd many times held long converse tions with tliu slaves, und always with the same result. Thcv aro much better satis- lied than 1 suspected, and when 1 spoko f the probability of sr,I was answered, thai "whito folks wouldn't let tiia fi'ln." 'Hut,' said I, "the blacks from the West Indies will cme here and help you tonm vour freedom." '-What! black soger I.r l..i 'nn eum. den. ninssa : lei ii fight the nigja, I know, and (ior Almih:y wo civoVm.goh !"

A Mr. Al"cr, at Boston, is now engaged on a new kind of gun for the navy 'The ranso with solid shot is nearly 5 miles with shell, somewhat shorter, and the explo ,sion of the shell renders conflagration cer lain to a i-reat distance. These are called C by those at work on them, the secret gun Hut what the secret is I could not acer tain. Since the war rumors 1 have been ubservanl of all and everything that could give a clue to the feclinps of the peopK This is not difficult to come at, as the feeling is general, and their confidence so great iu lheir own strength that the most diffident only speak of the cousequences and the re suit. In company with a party of mer chants, most of whom were engaged in the trade with England, I broached the war ...KwH.inil was astonished to find them to indifferent about the consequences. One of them, largely it.terc.led in cupper-.,.., in answer to a remak of mine, that he would i t inners "NTot a bit ol I.ava iu "i" ri -.,'1 h.v "thev will make capital pr. teen; the government will furnish guns of lon- range; no British man-of-war can catch them except a tteamer, and they can. not in a good breeze, so we must take thanoes." -But where will you get your m.f -Where 1 We have 94:000e- ti.4 fi.Wmen who will floJ our aeaportfi r.Hlv that in less ana i k j" , . .(..r. .! mon'h after the war la dec ared, there will be 500 of the fastest els in th. wor!J a!oit ar'iT-t:rr''' hti " ' li.h merchantman will nut oo uttoweu to ,ow herself at ten.

Two steam- era were launched a few days since, each about 4,000 totif, built in chJil mouths, and it i jut as easy to build &U in the same time or lo." "Hut your coasts aro not defended, lti-member you have no Sebas topol or Cronstadt." Nor do we want any. Wo have a fov very pretty loris, but shot'l l any nation nttempt an invasion, we will meet them with hands and hearts equal lo any, superior to most ; and we can con centrate 800,000 men at any point on our coast in a few days. Let the alarm be sounded at this moment, and in a few hours nearly 80,000 men will makothoir appear ance nrmed and equipped." This sounds lik ! bragging, but it i fact. This city (New York) has near that num ber enrolled nnd equipped; every man keeps his rifle nt home or in the private armory of the company to which he belongs, and I find it is tlio samo throughout the country. I have frequently met with boys of 13 nnd 14, with gun and game-bag, starting at early dawn for the woods, for here they can shoot game wherever found. War is argurd against by everybody as something to be avoided, but the idea of backing out to avoid it does not appear toen ter the mind of any body. Some of the papers fpeak of the President's message disparag ingly, but the people are with him. I re gret I cannot defend my country at this t'uno as 1 would wish. The Bulwer Clay ton treaty is plain nnd explicit, and there don't nnd won't understand double mean- ings in treaties. They say the man with the white hat does not refer to the individu al in tho whito cap, und my Lord John Rus- s II acknowledge ihe American interpre tation. There are thousands of men hero that the Americans would he glad to get clear of, but that does not justify England in blinking their laws by enlisting them ; and my Lord ru'inerslon's instructions ivnroiiiethiii''like tullinira man to stab his neighbor but not hurt him. If the iren'y (Clayioti-Buhver) is adher ed to, wo have the Stat pledged never to occupy it, (Central America,) for, say what we will, they will stick to the trra'y and it wilbnot be annexed ; abrogate it, and in -ss than ten years it will be one of the State s of tho 1'n ion. The Canadians are n very h.yal set, and think they could take nosscss'on of the Uui'id States at a mo ment's warning. Tiny have caught the hubit of bragging from their neighbors without having the wherewith to brag on. A I rip up the lakes is the must convincing proof wo can have of the ilillereiife in the two pmple. In the American are well fin- J,iil cities and towns, sawmills, riiilwwls tunning in every direction u. o.ei, ,vu seldom lose ti;:ht of tho locomotive nnd there are innumerable teamris nt every itidilK'. On the Cann-lian, where tliere nre settlements, yon see the well-kept, com- fortnblu dwellings, the smooth snenrcd lawn, and everything wears an air of comfort ; but liille or no business, with the exception of the great railroad. However, they arc rapidly improving ; but should there be war, the largest nnd best portions ot i, ana da are lost to us. Quebec, Halifax, and ...Iw.r iwiints wmild bother them. But to " i sum up my own observations after every opportunity that one man could have ul forded him. the result wouM benslollows. Mexico, Culia, nnd the whole of Central America iu the. South, including Cuba, wmildbe annexed ; and I have little doubt of Canada, in tliu .North ; millions ot trea sure and thousands of valuable lives lost to En"!and forever ; our commerce crippled in tvery sen, and some fighting that will irliiddeti tho heat ls of our tried soldiery. Now, what can we gain ? A fool of ter ritory t We don't wnnt it ; nnd if wo did, six feet for the majority of our brave fellows, I feu, , wuuld be the extent. Naval or mili tary glory we don't want, nnd as for the sand beach of tho Mosquito king it is a de cided humbug. What would be the result to this country ? It would put her back in nrospcrity for half a century; it would i . - . ruin thousands who are now in Biuuei.ee,. but would en rich thousands who are now poor. But the great advantage the Ameri cans have is that they can produce and manufacture everything tbey want ; the different climates nfford this. They would get accustomed to their oWI. goods and dis card ours forever. But the greatest injury io all parties, and I may say to the world, would be the making of this nation of 2-V 000,000 a warlike people ; and once in stiled with the love of war, the propagand ists of Europe would have a fearful ally. The last rear's crop of wheat is officially given at 170,0110,000 of bushels, and everything else in proportion, so that we cannot starve ihera out ; and, f.om my own observation, would rather see England contending with the whole of Europe than against this country. I am no croaker, nor have I any dcubt of the power and wealth of my be I loved country, and, if need be, coull agin 'v-cj:e s a:T.krt f'rter l?n l'T but ihu day that wuris declared between those two niigh'y rivals a contest will bo commenced that will bring more honors in it tfiiti than the world ever vet wilnewed. There is another item which I am liko to forget. Many of my county men place great dependence on tho abolitionists, or friends of freedom, in this country ; but I assure you their greatest protection hero is their iusiyiiilicuiico. They flourish as long as thought harmless, but the slightest suspi cion of their collusion with a foreign fo and they would bo annihilated ; in facl ' have proved to my entire satisfaction that those terrible and exciting questions uro only intended for poliiical effects; but at tach any importance to thr-m affecting Jie interests of tho country, and they nre gone. You would, uo doubt, be astonished to hear that many children of foreigners, and, in fact, foreigners themselves, aro know-nolh-iiv.!s,Htnrted lo proscribe them ; but such is the fact. I have extended my remarks further than I intended, but they have one desirable feature that is, truth. Should they prove acceptable, I may again intrude on you. I remain, yours, JAMES li. WAKKr.iN. Buffalo. New York, Jan. 11, 1850. From New Mexico. Col. Savery, Mr, Bransfotd, Mr. Rccs, and several other "entlemen, have recently arrived in our ci'iy from New Mexico. They represent tho Indians as quiet, and a better prospect for a permanent peace among tho hostile tribes, who have heretofore been a terror upon the plains, than ever before. Indeed, tho Indians may ho said to bo suing for ncace and foi'eivoness. ihe Santa re mail, duo the hitter part of this month, wil' not, it is supposed, arrive, as the new con tractors for its transportation, it is alleged, have not the means or necessary appliances to put it through. The outward bound mail for Santa Fe, which started on the first of this month, only proceeded a few miles from West port and then camo back on account, it is said, ef the depth of the miimw. nnd lies there at present. Thero is no news of any particular interest in iSew Mexico. The winter has been the hardest ona ever experienced there, und the stock upon thepluins have suffered quite severely The Arkansas river is reported to bo frozen to tho bottom. A number of merchants from New Mexico are already in our city, utid others are expected, lo lay in their stock of goods fur tho season, lnu put cliases this year will be very heavy. Si.

Tho Friend of China, of Dec. 15th, gives the tonnage of foreign nations nt ihat lime in the ports of Shanghae Fuchow-fou, Whampoa, nnd long Kong, a total of 50,000 tons. Of this amount, 18,075 is British, and 2 4,192 American. The latter is within 4,034 tons of the combined tonnago ot all toretg'i na tions at these ports, and is larger than tho tonnage of England, France, Spain, Hol land, Sweden, Hamburg, Denmark, I'ortu al and Bremen. Our Hf-t'.oiil Uvrtnsts. From an elaborate article in Putnam's Magazine for Murch wo gn'hcr some inter esting facts relatiie to our sea-coast de fense. Beginning iu tho Eastern part of tho United States, iho writer of the article alluded to gives us tliu designation and lo cation of each fortification upon tho coast around to the Mississippi, together with our Lake defenses on our Northern boun dary. In addition to this, we have nn ac count of tho number of men necessary to garrison each fort, the total amount of money already expended upon them, and the amount necessary to complete each of the forts enumerated. We think tho writer has omitted one fort on our extreme Eastern border,' ut East- port, Maine. A high natural eminence overlooks tho town, upon the summit of which aro barracks and some 20 guns ol largo calibre, though not enough by any means to defend the town from nn attack of heavy war ships. The first fort enu merated in tho article in Putnam is fori ICiiox. nt BuckstJort. Maine. Situated nt about 25 miles from iho inou'h of (he Ve nobscot nt a "narrow" in ihe river, it coin pletely precludes the possibility of iho pas- sa"0 of a hostile ship.
