AFFAIRS WITH 3MESXXOO. IMMEDIATE ANNEXATION"OF TEXAS. 1 o the Senate, and JIouu of Rtprtsentalivet: I transmit herewith copiesof despxtchesreceived from our Minuter at Mexico, since the commence ment of your present session, which claim, from their importance, and I doubt not will receive,your calm and deliberate consideration. The extraordi nary and highly offensive language which the Mexi can government has thought proper to employ in reply to the remonstrance of the Executive, through Mr. Shannon, against the renewal of the war with Texas while the question ol annexation was pend ing before Congress and the People, and also, the proposed manner of conducting that war, will not fail to arrest your attention. Such remonstrance, urged in no unfriendly spirit to Mexico, was called for by considerations ot an imperative character, having relation as well to the peace of this country and honor of this Go vernment as to the cause of humanity and civili zation. Texas had entered into the 'lreaty of An nexation upon the invitations of the Executive; and when. For that act, she was threatened with a renewal ol the war on the part of Mexico, she na turally looked to this Government to interpose it* efforts to ward oft' the threatened blow. But one course was left the Executive, acting with in the limits of its constitutional competency, and that was to protest in respectful, but at the same time strong and decided terms against it ? The war thus threateaed to be renewed, was pro mulgated by edicia and decrees, which ordered, on the part of the Mexican military, the desolation of whole tracts of country, and tVte destruction, with out discrimination, of all ages, sexes and condi tions of existence. Over the manner of conduct ing war, Mexico possesses no exclusive control. She has no right to violate at pleasure the princi ples which an enlightened civilization has laid down for the conduct of nations at war; and there by retrograde to a period of barbarism which, hap pily for the world, ha? long since passed away. All nations are interested in enforcing an observance ol those principles, and t he United States, the oldest ol the American Republics, and the nearest of the civi lised powers to the theatre on which these enormi ties were proposed to be euacted, could not quietly content themselves to witness such astate oi things They had, through the Executive, on an anothei occasion, and as was believed with the approbation of the whole country, remonstrated against outrage* similar, but even less inhuman, than those which by her new edicts and decrees she haB threatened to perpetrate, and of which the laie inhuman mns sacre at Tobasco was but the precursor. The bloody and inhuman murder of Fannin and his companions, equalled only in savage barbarity by the usages of tie untutored Indian tribes, pro ved how liule confidence could be placed on the mo6t solemn stipulations of her Generals, while the fate of others who became her captives in war, many of whom, no longer able to sustain the fitigues and ftivations of long journeys, were shot down by the i*hy side, while their companions who survived were subjected to sufferings even more painful than death?had left an indelible stain on the page of civilization. The Executive, with the evi dence of an intention on the part of Mexico to rt new scenes so revolting to humanity, could do uo les* than renew remonstrances formerly urged. F- i fulfilling duties so imperative, Mexico has thought oroper, through her accredited organs, because she has had representee to her the inhumanity of such proceedings to indulge in language uuknown to the courtesy of diplomatic intercourse, and offensive in 'he highest degree to this Government and people Nor has she oll'euded in this only. She has not only violatedexistmgconventionBbetween thetwo coun tries, by arbitrary and unjust decrees against our trade and intercourse, but withholds instalments ol debt, due to our citizens, which she solemnly pledged herself to nay, under circumstances which are fully explained by the accompanying lettter from Mr. Green, our Secretary of Legation. And when our Minister has invited the attention af her Government to wrongs committed by her local authorities not only on the property, but oi> the persons of our fellow-citizens, engaged in pro secuting fair and honest pursuits, she has ad ded insult to injury, by not even deigning, for months together, to return an answer to hit representations. Still further to manifest her unfriendly feelings towards the United States, she has issued decrees expelling from some of her pro vinces American citizens engaged in the peaceful pursuits of life, and now denies to those of our ci tizens prosecuting the whale fishery on the north west coast of the Pacific, the privilege which has. thrcuah all time, heretofore been accorded to them, of exchanging goods of a small amount in value ai her ports in California for supplies indispensable to tfvir health and comfort. Nor will it escape the observation of Congress, that in conducting a correspondence with the Minis ter oi the United States, whocannot, and do> s not know any distinction between the geographies I sections of the Uuion, charges wholly unloundeo are made ngaigst particular States, and an appeal to others for aid and protection against supposed wrongs. In this same connection, sectional pre judices are attempted to be excited, and the hazardous and unpardonable effort is mode to foment divisions among the States of the Union, thereby to embitter their peace. Mexico h?s still to learn, that however freely we may indulge in discussion among ourselves, the American People will tolerate no interference in their domestic affairs by any foreign Government; and in all thai concerns the constitutional guarantees and the national honor, the People oi the United States have but one mind and one heart. The subject of Annexation addresses itself most fortunately to every partion of the Union. The Executive would have been unmindful of its high est!obligations, if it could have adopted a course of policy dictated by sectional interests and local feel ings On the contrary, it was because the ques lion was neither local nor sectional, but made its appeal to the intere.-ts of the whole Union, and of cverv State in the Union, that the n> go nation, and finally the Treaty of Annexation was entered into ; und it has aff >rded me no ordinary pleasure, to perceive that, so far as demon strations have been made upon it by the Peo ple, they have proceeded from all portions of the union. Mexico may seek to excite divisions amongst ui,by uttering unjust denunciations against particular States,but when she comes to know that the invitations addressed to our lellow-citizens by Spain, and nfterwards by herself, to settle Texas, were accepted by emigrants from all the States; and when, in addition to this, she refreshes liet recollection with the fact, that the first effort which was made to acquire Texas was, during the administration of a distinguished citizen from an Eastern State, which was afterwards re newed under the auspices of a President from the Southwest, she will awake t? a know ledge of the futility of her present purpose of sow ing dissensions among us, or producing distraction in our councils by attacks either on particular States, or on persons who are now in the retirement of private life. Considering the appeal which she now makes to eminent citizens by name, can she hope to cscape censure for having aseribed to them as well hh to others, a design, as she pretends now, for the first time revealed, of having originated ne gotiations to d?>spoil her, by duplicity and falsehood, ol a portion of her territory1! The opinion then, as now,prevailed withthe Executive,that the a inexa tion of Texas to the Union was a matter of vast im portance. In order to acquire that territory be fore it had assumed a position among the indepen dent powers of the earth, propositions were made to Mexico for a cession of it to the United States Mexico saw in these proceedings, at the time, no cau<e of complaint, fche is now, when simply re minded of them, awakened to the knowledge of the fact, which she, through her Secretary of State promulgates to the whole world as true, that thobe negociattons were founded in decepiion and false hood,and superinduced by u< just and iniquitous mo tives While Texaswasadependency of Mexicothe U. States opened negociatious with the latter powei for the cession of her then acknowledged territory; and now that Texas is independent of Mexico, and has maintained a separate existence for nine years,?during which time she has been receiv ed into the family of nations, and is represented by accredited ambassadors at many of the prin cipal Courts of Europe?and when it has become obvious to the whole world that she is forever lost to Mexico, the United States iH charged with deception and falsehood in all relating to th? iMist.andcondemnatory accusations are made against HtaW s which have h id no special agency in the mat 'er, because the Executive of the whole Union ha* negotiated with free and indepe ndent Texas upon s mattervitally important to the interests of both coun tries. And after nine years of unavniling war, Mexi co now announces her intention, through her Secre tary of Foreign Affairs, never to consent to the inde pendence of Texas, or to abandon the effort to re conquer that Republic. She thus annouuees a per petual ckim, which at the end of acentnry will fur* nish her as plausible a ground for discontent against any natiou, which at the end of that time may enter into a treaty with Texas, as she possesses at this mom'nt against the United States. The lapse of time can add nothing to her title to inde pendence. A course of conduct such as has been described, on the part of Mexico, in violation of all triendly feeling, and of the courtesy, which should charac terize the intercourse between the Nations of the Earth, might well justify the United States in a re port to any measure to vindicate their nationul hon or; but, actuated by asiucere desire topreserve the general (leace, and in view of the pi esent condition ol Mexico, the Executive resting upon its integrity ,and uot fearing but that the judgment of the world will daiy appreciate it* motives, abstaius from recommending to Congress a resort to measures of redress, and content itself with re-urgif.g upon that body prompt und immedi ate action on the subject of Annexation, liy adopting that measure, the United States will be iu the exercise ol an uuduubttd right; and if Mex ico, uot regarding that forbearance, shall aggravate the injustice of her conduct by a declaration of war against them, upon her head will re*t all the re."pon-ibility. John Txlkr. Washington City, Dec. 19,1844. Orrnuois in Maryland?It seems by the ac counts from Maryland, that there is a class of men arrayed against the laws of that state, similar to those who figure near Albany as the Anti-Renters. Thus, in two mtes, both pretending to civiliza tion of the highest order, the laws are completely set at defiance. Annexed aro the particulars of the lav/less movements in Maryland : Bel-Air, Dec. ?>, 1844. I take up my pen to give you an ac count of a gross outrage that was perpetra ted in our village on Saturday last. An outrage in which the laws and its officers were set at defiance by a ruthless mob of desperadoes. To call them men would be a disgrace to humani ty. I have heard ot men who have been low and base enough to set at defiance nil law and order, and trample under foot the dearest rights our country; but never did I expect to see such a sight as was witnessed in our village on Saturday last. Where it will end, God only knows. You oo doubt recohect that one of our collectors was assaulted while in the execution of his duty last winter, by a gang of desperadoes who call them selves Anti-tax men,alias Kepudiators, who threat ened the life of any person that would bid for the property put up for fale bv the collector; and who did, in fact, assault and beat a young man,whoBe only offence was, that he bid For the property so (>u'. up lors.ile. The leaders of that mob then said (hat the resistance was only begun ; and thev spoke the truth. A collector had advertised to sell die property of Shadrach Street, (a man who Iive9 in Marshall's District, which, for the honor of our county, be it said, is the only district that is disgraced by these ruffians,) for state taxes ? The collector thought it best ui sell the property in Bel-Air. On Saturday last, (the day ot sale,) the mob collected, using threats of violence ugainsi any one who would bid for the property. They were about one hundred strong. The property was put up for sale, and a young man, a resident of our town, bid for it, when the whole mob rushed upon him with cries of "kill him,'' " kill uim," " lynch him," <fco. (I had forgotten to tell you that they had provided a rail to ride the bidder on.) He was seized by about a dozen of thein, who no doubt would have put their threats into execution, but for the timely exertions ot som* of his friends, who torced him into the Clerk's office, and thereby laved his life. The collector himself received h blow with a stone, and was considerably injured One or two other persons were struck, but not injured. A veneruble magistrate of our town, who used his utmost efforts to preserve the peace, was cursed and abused by one of these fiends in human shape, ( a cowardly ruffian, who would be a dis grace to the penitentiary,) and asked, with an oath, what business he had to interfere. Yoh will uo doubt wonder where the Snerifl was ull this time; 1 will answer that he was on the ground, anil commanded the peace, and tried to interfere, out he was a small man, and of course could d< nothing in such a mob as that. Hut you will ask why he did not ^summon a posse 1 I will answer, I do not know. Lint when 1 state to you afrw (acts, perhaps we can come at it. In the first lace, this same Sheriff is as great a Repudiatoi as the best of them. And this same mob, on the sime day, beat a respectable man of our count) very severely, whose offence was, that on the day ->f the October election, he got in o a political con troversy with this mine Sheriff, and struck him " A fellow-feeling makes us wonderotts kind By a remarkable coincidence the Sheriff was up at the riot in Marshall's District, and his efforts u quell the mob there were as ineffectual as they were here. 1 will state that Botne of the leadert of this mob were foreigners ; and by far the larg est portion of them were men who pay no taxei at all. Rior on Tim Valley Railroad ?The following particulars are given by the Pottsville correspon dent ot the Philadelphia Sun, under the date ol December 12? "Our town is in a state of great excitement in consequence of ihe Irish laborors on the Schuyl kill Vajley railroad having struck for higher wages and driven those men off the line who were wil ling to work for the wages paid by the contractors. Mr. Smith, a contractor, in the beginning ot last week reduced the wages from eighty to seventy five cents, when his men refused to work,and pro ceeded in a bodv down the line and drove the hand* ot Dater, Lessig and Mills from their work On Thursday they proceeded to Middleport, and broke the iloors and windows of Mr. BlussmgerV hotel. Yesterday morning Mr S. Mills, a sub-con tractor, and several others, put their men to woik, and in the course of an hour about seven hnndreu men came tipon them, wrested th?*ir tools from ihern, and swore they would kill them if the) dared work another stroke To Mr. Mills they said that it he dared make his appearance again until he paid more wages,he might prepare his cof fin. They also obliged the other contractors to flee. Mr. Hoffman, one of the engineers, was at tacked, end saved himself by flight; Esquire Collo han wascaught and dreadfully mal-treated.as were also a number ol oiher persons An express was sent lor the sher.ff, who arrived here about 3 o'clock in the arternoon, and in com pany with A. W. Craven, the chief engineer of lli? road, proceeded to Port Carbon to see what they were about. On his arrival there, he discovered that several hundreds of the men were a8?embled a few miles above und they were determined to maintain their ground and not let the contractors go on with their work. They had attempted to take the lives ot several Germans, who would not go with them Col. Wynkeep received orders from the sheriff, to march four of his companies over to quell the mob and arrest all they could. In halt an hour four companies, the Marion Kifle, Capt. Potts; National Light Infantry, Capt Blatid; Washington Artillery, Capt. Nsglr, and Wuahing ton Yeagers, Capt. Dobflinger, were on the march The news that they were on the march preceded them, and when they had reached the spot the Irish had dispersed. The companies,however, proceeded to Middleport and Ttiscaroia, where iliey succetd ed in taking forty.two, but for want ol evidence many ol th-m were discharged. A number were brought to this place, and in default ot bail com mitted to jail "PS I have this moment seen a letter from Mr. Blussinger, brought here by an express in which he says that the Irish have surrounded his house and threatened his life. The military will be ordered out to-morrow morning early?pethaps to-night. Tn* Abortion Cask or Mks. Litceba Park it r ?The case was argued to-day, and given to the jury.

American Institute. " Fabmkks Cu b." Tuesday, December 17 ?Subject, " Dittatc in Cattle." Tlie progress of this stepping stone, to the future elevation, (we trust) of the American Agricultu rist, in practical uud theoretical knowledge, and the manifest interest that attends each successive meeting of the Club, in their familiar and conver sational reauonmgqi evinces a universal desire amongst the farmers, to obtain such information as may guide them, not only in the tillage of the soil, but in the most advantageous method of increas ing that soil to a fertility which nature may have in hercapricious whimsdenied to it. It i6 folly to judge of the nature of land,the mode of its improvement, or the process of cultivation, from whole homtlies published and practised in other countries, and un der other climacteric contingencies. The study and the practice of agriculture is purely climacteric.? Every breese?every indication of weather, must be studiously watched, and no application of theore tical principles can be, or ought to be, exercised beyond the sphere which it is intended to reach, or the soil it is designed to be applied to. It is a perpetual reference to the practical experience of foreign agricultural*, that h?.s paraliztd the ambi tion cf American farmers to judge for themselves. Books are searched, and plans adopted, without any ostensible benefit,and the result is, de*p< ndence upon the part of the farmer, and a desire to aban don, for soil more congenial, a tenement up >n which he lias exhausted his health, strength, ai.d wealth Nature's laws ia agriculture are nul-ueV privileges?resist them, and vegetable anuchy and rebellion ensues--" Naturam expel la* lirea tam-n usque reeurret," isas applicable in the theoiv of agriculture as it is in the innate dispositions of the human order. Moral cultivation n.ay sine borate, but not eradicate the indigenous weeds ? f settled aud established passions. I'i the latter, human invention may, as in the former, produce a similar effect, but as in the mind, so in the earth from which that mind originates, there is a sub stance that r? quires a harmony of solution, tliat however artificially applied, removes the thorns and noxious elements peculiar to each. It is only by a watchful attention to the requisites of the ope. and a careful examination of the deficiencies of the other, that a remedy for each can be employed. So it was proved at this meeting of the. most en terprising and intelligent fanners of our land, when each man avowed his practice and de veloped proofs of individual experience, highly tending (however different) to the mutual improve ment and edification of all. Gen Chandlkr presided, and the reading of the proceedings ol the last meeting being dispensed with, the regular business wasentered upon. An in teresting communication from Colonel Mon sele, of Long Island, was lead by Mr. Meigs, ihe Secretary, by whicn it appeared that that gentle man planted twelve acres It r corn, manured it one third with poudrette, and the remaining two-thirds with fish; he suflered losses by the depredation ol birds, and found that the birds consumed that which was manured by fish, while that which was manured by poudrette escaped.

If muck contains 75 per cent of organic matter, it supplies the natural atenlity of the land. Here a member recommended a de hating club to facilitate business, giving every man an opportunity to express his views. Profes sor Smith entered into so awfully learned and phi losophical a demonstration, that Mr Kerr recom mended the assistance of an interpretor to explain io plain farmers, his " bionicsystein."?Gen. Tal mage rt commended anothersub|ect to the consule ration of the club. Some statist,cal standard of the consumption of meat lathe city,that would enable every man to answer the inquiries oj strangers upon the subject. In accordance with this view Mr Wakeman selected three butchers of standing in the trade, Messrs. Broadway, Value and Degues, io supply him with the average quantity of beef, mutton, lamb and pork consumed in the city; in beef from 50 to 52.000 are slaughtered yearly, weight from 650 to 700; showing that from 62,000 black cattle 34,000,000 of pounds are derived. Of ,heep and lambs, it wus found the amount slaugh tered th be 150,000 head, making the consumption of mutton 11,000,625 pounds, allowing 50,000 hot's for the city consumption, averaging 150 pound* each, there would b? a consumption of port, amounting to 30,000,000 of pounds ?The Chairman th^o ttiioouncrci tlie aubirct th?" day, 44 1 Disease in Cattle," when Mr Kerr exposed the ig norance with which the diseases ol floras weie treated, and illustrated his remarks by several pro minent features He strongly recommended the general use ol the hay crib for horses, in prefer ence to the inconvenient rack at present in use. A gentleman here stated that in the British cavalry >ervice, nine horsesout ol teu became blinded from the practice of throwing the hay from the loft mix ed with clover and other s-eds over the horse ? head and filling hiseyes with dust and seed. Sinct the introduction of the crib no blindness has oc curred, less hay wasted, as the horse cannot tram ple it, and holding only a certain quantity, cannot remain to be blown upon. Dr Fiki-d produced a specimen of a full blooded cattle dog, known in England and Scotland as the Cooly dog-employed by Shepherds lor many use fill purposes in the care of sheep and other cattle. The dog was bred by Mr Alleaton, of the Uih ward. The sagacity of this speeies of dog has been a matter of vast impoitance to the Shepherd, and the cultivation of the breed to the American farrm r is highly recommended. Mr M?u?s slated, from the information he has derived from butchers of veracity, that u is a gen eral case that the livers of all animalssre diseased in this country, and that consequently the carcase must, more or less, show the disease. This led to an investigation ol the Jewish method or killing cattle for their own use?the origin and use of the metal badge; when a member of the persuasion, we presume, gave a most interesting Scriptural snd historical account of the collegtste discipline, by which the Jew becomes a practitioner in the an of slaughtering A long discussion ensued upon the propriety of bleeding cattle before killing, which wss proved, except in certain cases, to the iniigment of many as unnecessary, and sometimes pernicious. The members here became tired, snrt is the room was becoming cold, the farther dn cussion of this important subject was postponed to the n<.*t reguKr day ot the t/luh's meeting. Hm was by far, the most rational and instructive meetings that has as yet occupied the attention of the Club. A memorial will be presented to ih? Legislature tor the endowment of an Agricultural practical college, from the invaluable advantages that have accrued to other countries by similar in ?dilution*. The design is well worthy of general sup ,?ort. If Professor Smith's learned and flippant disser tations are not fully reported, his technical jihrase olofiy on cue side, and his extraordinary volubility on the other, combined with his assertion, that Ins remarks were invariably misstated by the reporters, must plead our excuse. Hydropathy, or the Cold Water Cure?Ur. Shtw'i Lecture last evening, at the Clin ton Hall. Tuere was a pretty good muster last eveniog in the lecture room of Clinton ilall, to hear Dr Shew show forth oil the advantages of this mode of curing all the disorders which flesh in heir to, ait well as to meet the various objections made by most rational folka against it. The lecturer started with the latter point lirst. He said that he wes only going to give his hearers a plain common sense lecture, but would not pledge himself to all that had been said in tavor ot the cold water cure. It was well known that there had ever been from time to time what was termed water doctors, who had done a deal of good, but whos* principles were never rightiy understood until Pressnttz, some twenty years since, was so successf ul. There was a great fault in our education, for we were always led to believe that when we were ill we required medicine, but it was no such thing, water would do better than even medicine could; but from its superfluity we overlooked it. The first objection made to the cold water system was by the French, that it was not founded on fact. The facts were, that no man had been so successful in his practice as Pressnitz ; that under his system there had been less mortality than under any other. The second objection was, there were several cases in which the application of cold water was highly dan gerous Now this was true, for instance drink* ing cold water when in a great heat, but at the same time it was equally well known that in some cases ot high fever a drink of cold water had per formed a perfect cure. The lecturer then alluded to some old physician,who wrote two large volumes on the value of water na a medicine. He then treated on the sort of water that whs most de sirable for the object in view, and went to show 'hat drinkin; it in abundance at meals was bene ficial. Bathing was in no case dangerous, and that many cures had been effected by it, but it was n? cewary to know the proper time for battling,&c., th? same as drinking ot the pure stream. It was a most capital remedy for indigestion when it was fully known the quantity that ought to be drank. The great bugbear of the system to most people was the wet sheet; this, it was true, might be made injurious by improper applica tion ; for in-tauce, a dump sheet would be injuri ous, but a wet one would have quite a contrary ef fect ; and proceeded to show how this was the case, and said it was founded on an ancient mode of cu ring disorders?that of inclosing diseased persons in the warm carcases of animals slain for the pur pose, or wrapping them up in the w in skin just (?tripped from thetn; and that the wet t ret had just the same effect in reducing inflammation, either in burns, scalds, fevers, ulcerB, or pleurisy; and that there were no drugs in existence to equal the cold water for curing these disorders. The system could not be studied too much, und there might be cases in which the remedy might be had, but there were cases in which it was good, and if time per mitted he would cite several of the latter. Oue or two he did give?that of an old lady, who had been given up by the doctors, tried it and was perfectly cured, and was alive at the present time for ought he knew. Another case, ot a little child, afflict ed with fevei and ague, who was perfectly cured by the cold water system, and afterwards got so fond of the pure element that he would leave his lood to partake of it. The last was a case of the lecturer's brother, who was buddenly attacked with inflammation in the bowels to such an extent as to defy boih doctor and drugs. But the lecturer s epped in, and with bandagec. sheets, &c , banish ed the disorder, and the afflicted waa walkng ^bout in 24 hours afterwards. He did not wish ins hearers to take his assertion in these mat'crs, but to try for themselves. Drugs were tea times more dangerous than cold water, and he coeld cite hundreds ot cases to prove this was the fact People were killed by diugsin our hospitals in dozens ; and those present who had ever any ill net*, might be very thankful that they had urn been drugged to death Bleeding and mercury had killed thousand", while Presnitz had cured all his patients. The ccld water cure was more au aligoua with Divine Providence than any other system known; and the gentleman wound up lilt lecture with a high eulugium on water.

Portland Ad ?itfur, Dtt 70 Mexico.?Fi htukr Pa*ticcla*s?Since our last publication, we have Been several letters and papers that were not in our i>o*scMion when we made our reiume of the intelligence brought by the Lauren*. These threw a dark shade over Ihe fortunes ot Santa Anna, and give a more impos ing front to the revolution headed by Paretics Some of the statements in the letters we have since seen, are, of course, conjectural, and made by parties who are not ot the Dictator's faction ; yet they come to us in a thape that entitle them to all the credit that can be given to the r*i>resenta tions ol persons who apeak what they think of a cause that they do not espouse. A letter Irom Vera Ctuz, dated on the 30th No vember, states that the revolution in Jalisco pre* sents each day au aspect more formidable. Gen. Paredes is said to be at the head of 8or 10.000men, and the South is uniting with the diss fleeted. Za catecas, Aguas Calient?*, and a part of San Luis Potest have seconded or approved of the vronun eta mien to ot Paredea, while it is asserted ihat Oa juca has also declared against Santa Anna. The latter has positively declared against the Congress, while that body is daily publishing every document received, both lor and aguinst the revolution?a circumstance which would indicate that the mem bers are determined to act independently, and have little fear of the Dictator. That a majority ol them are in tavor ot a change of government, and hear tily sick of the tyrannical and oppressive measures of Santa Anna, we see no reason to doubt, and they are also in favor ot his being called to a strict account for his actions previoua to the convening ot the Congress. The same letter likewise states that Santa Anna have, on reaching Queretaro, a body ol 10,000 men, and also that he has obtained 800ft . 000 from the brokers of the city to carry on his operations with activity. Whether this money was obtained by a forced loan or otherwise, is not stated. The writer of the letter, in sddiuon, seems to verify the rumcr given yesterday that Santa Anna had executed several officers who were leagued against him. We translate the following extracts ''Various officers of the army of Santa Anna, who had deserted, have been shot, and this act has excited much indignation against the Dic tator. Tlascala, Apetatotla and Chantempan, in the Department ot Puebla, have declared in favor of the movement of Jalisco, so it is said. If this be true, Santa Anna seems to be surrounded on all sides by enemies. One letter was received by the Laurens, which we have been permitted to read, which states that it was momentarily expected that General Pedro C ortazar, residing at Celaya in the State ol Guana juato, would come out in favor of the plan ot Pa r 'etter 'r?m him had been intercepted, in which he expressed himrelf, in strong terms, against Santa Anna, declaring that he is not for him, and moreover, so compromising himself, that be has no other resource lliau to openly embrace the cause ot the revolutionise. Should this prove true, Santa Anna has a popular and powerful officer arrayed against him. L/Vt the time the Santa Ft prisoners were marched through Guanajuato, Cortazar was Governor ol the State. He was spoken of as a brave and meritorious officer by the Mexicans?he certainly treated the unfortunate Texans with every leniency, allowing them a day's rest at Celaya and the liberty ct the place, sending all the sick and in hiin to the hospitals, and providing those who were well with comfortable quarters in a convent and an abuudance of the best provisions ] Above we have given such items from the letters belore us us we have deemed of interest to our readers?such as may assist them in forming a bet ter opinion i f the present state ot parties in Mexico, uwiug to the tyranny of the government towards ihe piees, and the surveillance exercised over the channels of public intelligence, it is difficult to ob tain exact intotmation from the theatre ot events iliat are particularly interesting to the people of this country, Irom the unlriendly dispositions evinced by the government of M- xico towards that of the L imed Steles. We will endeavor, from time to time, to kef pour readers advised of the precise posture cf Mexicau atiuirs, in so far as that term may be applicable to information derived through *ueh precarious and scanty means as are allowed to the circulation of news in that distracted Republic. | ?N.
