New York papers to the 27th of March have been
received by the packet-ship Roscius. Their tenor is, on the whole, pacific ; though some politicians, professing to be far-seeing beyond their fellows, intimated, that it might suit Mr. Vas Beans's election- eering policy to provoke a war with England. The Senate of' the State of Maine had passed resolutions, recommending the with- drawal of the troops of the State from the disputed territory ; but the House of Representatives, in a string of grandiose resolutions, urged the General Government to send a special minister to Eng- land, with a demand that the line between Maine and New Bruns- wick should be immediately drawn according to the treaty, (that is, Maine's interpretation of the treaty) of 1783, and in the event of the refusal of the British Government, to proceed at once to draw the said line on its own authority. It was understood, however, that the affair would not be managed with so much precipitation. The Mainiacs, as they are nicknamed, were assured in the news- papers of New York and Philadelphia, that if they chose to pick a quarrel with England, they must also bear the cost and conse- quences of it : no money was forthcoming on the application of Governor FAIRFIELD for a loan ; and the necessity of adopting a more pacific tone, would, it was presumed, soon force itself on the Maine Representatives. Sir JOHN HARVEY, in compliance with Mr. Fox's undertaking to Mr. FORSYTH, had pledged himself to ab- stain from hostilities.
The commercial intelligence continues unfavourable. Banks were stopping payment in various parts of the Union, and the pres- sure for money was very great. The shares of the United States Bank had fallen considerably, and there was quite a panic in the money- market.
