The Great Wiu- -ttceUiiK The great war meeting whicli has been on the tapis for some time, will take place in the Park this afternoon, at four o'clock. Tliii m acting has been projected by some of our most influential citizens, without distinction of party; and it is cxpected tliat it will be the largest assemblage ever convened in this city. The object of this meeting is to give a fall enun ciation of the feelings of the people in regard to the war on the Rio Grande, and todevelope the course of conduct whieli they will adopt in sustaining tlio government in ovary exertion it shall make to bring it to a glorious and successful issue. The glorious news that reached u* yesterday, will give a tremendous impulse to the speukera and the meeting, and we would advise all who intend to be present, to learn the following song, written for the occasion:?

The city of N?w York was clectrifled at an ear ly hour yesterday morning, with a telegraphic des patch from Washington, communicating intel ligence of tho opening of the campaign on tho ltio Grande with one of the most brilliant actions that ever was achieved by the American arms. The details of this glori ous opening will be found in to-day's paper copied from the New Orleaus papers and our pri vate despatches. In addition to tho authentication of these de tails, wo may ndd that a letter was received yes terday by Mr. Hamilton, of this city, from his ?on, who arrived at Point Isabel, when the New York steamer went there. It is dated on tho i morning of May 6. He states that General Taylor i had taken 2.300 troops with him in the sortie from the camp, on the 3d, leaving 700 in the camp, j This last number fought tho battle of the 3d, bom barded and burnt Matamoras. On tho 6th Gen. Taylor, with his 2,300 troops, intended to fight his way bark to the camp, which service would take him a day and a night. He expected to reach the ca np on the morning of the 7th. When the New York left Brasos St. Jago, on the 6th, a heavy cannonade was heard in the direction of Matamoras. This must have been another at tempt of tho Mexicans on tho camp, for which they had rallied after their defeat of the 3d. General Taylor would l'all upon them in the rear, 1 and another general battle would take place?die particulars and result of which we have yet to hear. This would be the decisive action, and of this we have yet to receive intelligence. Thus far, the American troops have behaved with great gallr.ntry, and equal science and skill. Our hopes are high of still moro glorious news. With an other victory, then hie for the city of Montezuma. General Taylor, and the army under his com mand have vindicated, to the fullest extent, the ?onfidence which M as reposed in their bravery and prudence, in the midst of difficulties almost in surmountable, and in the face of superior numbers, that would have appalled the stoutest hearts. This brilliant action, however, is but the beginning of the full and ample chastisement which will be in flicted on the military usurpers of the republic of Mexico. We are persuaded that under the new aspect which has been given to this campaign by General Taylor, our government, whatever orders may have been given in regard to any other com mander, will allow the man who has commenced so gloriously, to finish the busiuees, and reap the laurels that are waiting for him. The importance of Uiis magnificent blow, in flicted at the opening of the campaign, will have a moral effect, not only in this country, but in Mexico and in Europe, the result of which no one , ?nn properly estimate. The spirit and anima tion, and the display of such valor, on die Rio Grande, that will be given to the whole extent of this magnificent republic, will now develop itself in a way to speak so as to be under- i stood by foreign powers. The eainpaign will, now, l>e prosecuted both by land and water, so as to produce tho results that are to be expected by a severe chastisement on the faithless usurpers of our sister repub lic. There is every reason to believe that the American arms, reinforced as they will be, to any extent, will march into the interior of Mex ieo, take possesion of all the northern depart- | ments, from the Gulf of Mexico to the Pacific, including California, and produoe almost a revo lution throughout that unfortunate republic. The army, in its progress by land, will be assisted by the American ileet, increased and invigorated from both oceans, and the reeults cannot be cal culated. The first effects of this campaign, opened W it is with such glorious victories, will | be felt throughout the governments of Europe. The bravery, numbers, courage, indomitable per severance and extraordinary unanimity which have prevailed among the American people in this crisis, will teach European governments to be ware how they interfere tn matters on this eonti- 1 nent hereafter. We have no doubt the events on ? the Rio Grande, already developed, will create consternation among the despots of Europe, as much as it will create a feeling of exultation among the struggling people. Let the advantage acquired be carried to the gates of Mexico itself: and we trust and hope the American govern- . ment will not relax its energy one iota, until the ' affairs ot that unfortunate republic shall be placed on a respectable, free, dignified and contented j condition, such as we have seen existing here j for years. All difference of opinion about the I merits of this war must disappear at once. It I must lie prosecuted with the highest energy of the I American government, until all the aids proposed ' shall be aeutad Byl Magnetic i Telegraph and THE MAIL*.

Wo received the following highly important news by telegraph yesterday morning. It will be seen that the tide has changed, and that the Ame rican army has vindicated the honor of the coun try. The blow must be" followed up with des patch, and the war brought to a conclusion aa speedily as possible. The telegraph, early yesterday morning, con veyed to this city the following gratifying intelli gence which we hastened to communicate with out a word of comment. The thrill of pleasuro able excitement which passed through the com munity, was shown by a general turn-out of our citizen*. By the steamer New York, at New Orleans, from Point Isabel, the following report was received from Capt. Walker, of the Texas Rangers, who arrived there on the 5th inst., at 4 P.M., from the iutrenchment opposite Matamoras. An engage ment had taken place between the United States troops and Mexican forces. Gen. Taylor, en the 3d inst. left the entrench ments with a detachment of ove r 2000 United States troops, for the purpose of opening a communi cation between Point Isabel and the entrench ments. On the morning of the 4th or 6th inst. the Mexicans, taking advantage ol the departure of Gun. Taylor, opened a heavy cannonade on the in t ranchments, which was gallantly returned by the United States troops, only 760 in number, who, in thirty minuta silenced tht enemy's batteries in the rear, and toon after reduced tht city of Matamoras to athtt. The daughter among the Mexican$ was tre mendous?upwards of seven hundred lay dead on the field of battU; and ths number of houses left in Matamoras was not sufficient to accommodate the wounded. Accounts say that the number of Mexicans in and about Matamoras was 6000, and reinforcements were daily expected. Our troops wore in fine spirits. Only one Amci-ican was hilled in the general engagement. ! TTie works are so well constructed, that the Mexicans tould not injure them in the least, and hence the small loss on our side. Major Ringgold, of the ar tillery, commanded the American camp opposite Matamoras during the engagement. Gen. Taylor was to leave Point Isabel on the 6th instant, with a detachment of troops, deter mined to open a communication between Point Isabel and the army opposite Matamoras, which had, for some days, been cut off, and only effected in one instance, by the gallant Walker, whoso horse was shot from under him, with the loss of six* men. McClister and RadclifTo are two among the six men of Captain Walker's party killed while forcing their way through the Mex icans to the U. S. camp. According to the Galveston Netcs of the 8th inst., Gen Taylor had left Point Isabel, and there was not the slightest doubt bnt that he would hew his way to the intrenchments, though vastly superior numbers of the enemy were known to be posted in large forces among the almost impassible thickets of chapporal in the road, to cut him off. The number of Mexicans is esti mated at from 15,000 to 20,000. It seems reason able to suppose that a glorious and decisive battle was fought on the 7th ult., and we ivait with painful anxiety to hear the result. On the morning of the 6th, previous to the de parture of the New York, a heavy cannonading was heard, supposed to be another attack of the Mexicans^ on the United States troops opposite Matamoras. If the Mexicans made an attack on thp intrench ments on the 6th inst., it is very probable that they will be repulsed, perhaps with a dreadful slaughter. According to the report of the Captain of the steamer New York, a heavy cannonading was heard on the 6th inst., supposed to be a second at tack of the Mexicans on the American camp. On the same day Gen.Taylor was to have left Point Isabel for the intrenchments. Thus the Mexicans will be received with warmth by Major Ringgold from the intrenchments, and be attacked in the rear by Gen. Taylor;?being thereby placed be tween two fires. If no accident occurs, the Mex icans will be completely annihilated. It would seem by this that the Mexicans had placed them selves in a very awkward and critical position. Our next intelligence will, therefore, be of the greatest importance. TEIiKOHAPHIC DESPATCH?NO. II. W? have just receive*! a second despatch overJ the lightning line. It ronfirmt all that let havt pub- | Hthtd of the dtftat of tht Mtxirant This great and gratifying intelligence reached , New Orleans nt 10 minutes before 9 o'clock on | the evening of the 10th inst. The eity of New Orleans wa# thrown into a state j of the greatest excitement and enthusiasm. The population seemed to he suddenly quadrnpled. j The streets presented one living mass of human , beings. Joy was depicted in every (ace, and one i universal prayer of thank?giving aeccnded on | high. It appecrs that Major Ringgold, of the Flying Artillery, commanded the American camp du- i ring the engagement. The intrenchmenta wera so strongly and soldierly constructed, that the Mexican shot had not the least effect, not so much even as the balls of the British had upon the cot ton bales at New Orleans in 1815. Santiago and Isabel were placcd under martial law, and every person compelled to do military duty. All accounts agree that the Mexicans nre rapidly flocking in from all quarters. How many had crosaed the river could not be told, though it seems reasonable to presume that a largo part of their forces will be brought into requisi tion to dispute the march of Gen- Taylor.

Special Despatch to the New York Herald OflUf# Import JKt Battlt with tht Mtxicam. New Orleans, May It, 1848. I cannot express to you the intense feeling of satisfac tion I experience, at being able to write that the Ameri can army on the banks of the Rio Orande, have been victorious, and that the wily Mexican has outmanoeuvred himself, and met with severe loss, while his stronghold and retreating ground, Matamoras, has been laid waste, by the galling and torribly certain fires from the Ameri can batteries. Proudly still does the star spangled bannor wave, and new laurels crown the American arms. I despatched to you on Saturday the account of a skirmish between Captain Walker and a large force of Mexicans, and the fact of his having departed to the camp of General Tay lor, with four men, on the morning of the 29th ult. | The skill and experience of tne brave Texan tri umphed, and after the most hair-breadth escapes, he suc ceeded in avoiding the Mexicans, and with his brave ; companions reached the ramp in safety, and placed Gen. Taylor in possosr.ion of all the circumstances that had occurred at Point Isabel. Gen Taylor appears to have acted with a promptness and decision which does him in finite crodit. He determined?knowing the strength of his entrenchments, nO'l that 1000 men could defend them I against any attack of the Mexicans?to march himself i with a portion of his forces to Point Isabol, and obtain ' supplies for his troops, at all hazards. Orders were accordingly given on the morniug of the 1st, to about twelve hundred of his force, comprising ar tillery, oavolry and infantry, and every preparation was made for a forced night march. By nignt the troops were : all prepared, and after dark, a* I learn, thev filed oat of camp and took the nearest road to Point Isabel, marching ' i with rapidity, but constantly on the alert. Contrary to \ ' the expectationI of Gen. Taylor and hit aflcert, they did I not encounter any Mexican/, and early on the morning of I the 3d, they reached the Point and marched into the town, | much to the astonishment, but greatly to the joy of Ma 1 jor Thomas and his command. The possiveness of the Mexicans between the Point and the camp?for that there is a. large force there is es I tablished beyond a doubt?may be accounted for in more ! ways than one. It is preposterous to suppose that they ; were not aware from their spies, who are continually ho ? vering about the camp, of General Taylor's movements I and the most natural inference is that they did not at tack him in hopes of being able to dislodge nim from his Eosition at camp. They were perfectly well aware that e was nearly out of provisions, and knew that he would not attempt to march to the Point unless he took with him a large forco; and consequently, that he must have materially weakened his camp, and they therefore prefer i red to suffer him to depart in peace, preferring to prevent : his regaining h;s camp, by themselves taking possession j of it. relying upon their batteries above, in the rear, and at Mutamoras, and upon their vastly superior numbers. That they had calculated upon General Taylor's leav I ing the camp, was evident from their movements the next morning; for on the morning of the 3d, the Mexican , batteries at Matamoras were opened upon the camp, i while that in the rear in the chapporal, (a thick moss of I live oak trees, completely iuterwoven with almost im- ; 1 penetrable ^underbrush,) also poured its fire into tho , American camp. Tho accounts say that our forces were I not at all backward in returning the fires; but our bat tery of four 12 or 18 pounders?I believe they are of the i 1 latter calibre?returned their fire with compound inte- ! rest upon the town of Matamoras, and did most terrible ; execution. In less than thirty minutes, say the accounts, j the battery in tho rear was completely silenced, and the ? Sreater part of Matamoras was completely battered i own, with a loss roughly estimated at 700 killed on the side of tho Mexicans, ana but one American killed, and : two slightly wounded, by the bursting of a Mexican ! shell. The accounts further state that there were hardly houses enough left in Matameras to accommodate the . wounded;but this is, doubtless, exaggeration. As soon as the firing was heard, the indomitably brave ' Walker volunteered to go to the camp, and gather the cause of the firing, whiob, of course, was distinctly heard : from the Point He went, and returned on the morning ? of the 6th. The firing was resumed after his departure, and continued, at intervals, up to the hour of 1 o'clock P. M., on the 6th, at which time tho New York left for this port, where she arrived early last evening. She also < reported that General Taylor had made his arrangements to return to camp that afternoon with supplies. That he would be attacked he was fully convinced. It is thought the Mexican force amounts to at least 15,000 on both sides of the river. 1 am indebted to an intelligent passenger on tho New York, for these particulars. The Alabama will, pro- 1 bably, arrive to-day with still later news. You can scarcely conceive with what rapidity the ' news spread last night. The town was apprisod of the result in a miraculously short space of time, the wharf i being crowded when tfie Now York arrived. A gun was immediately brought into the Place d'drneg, and a i national salute fired, while shouts rent the air in every | direction. Fireworks were displayed in Lafayette i Square, and all was rejoicing nearly all night long.? i This news will have a grand effect upon the volunteers who will be pouring in on all hands. Three new com panies were formed yesterday, increasing the volunteer force to about 1800, and all fighting men. The Galves ton took off two companies of volunteers, and three companies of regulars, (340) on Saturday night, and the James L. Day left late last night, or early this morning, with five companies of volunteers, numbering about 300. Three other companies were despatched in the Tele graph. The drafting will commence to-day. Tne weather is glorious, and business is brisk. One large mercantile house stopped payment a few days ago, for a very large amount, upon the reported failure of a heavy house in New York, whom it was said had failed for an immense amount I havo not seen the report con firmed. Yours, D. New Orleans, May JO, 8 o'clock, P. M. I The steamer New York i* just in, and brings the grati fying intelligence of a complete rout of the Mexican ; force*, and the total destruction of the city of Matamorai. 1 It appears that, on the evening of the 3d, Gen. Taylor left his camp with a portion of his array, determined to reach Toint Isabel. As soon as he had deputed, the Mexicans being aware of it, opened a heavy fire on his detachments. It was returned by the Americans, under the command of Col. Twiggs, and in less than half an hour their batteries were silenced, and Matamoras laid in ruins, there not be ing sufficient houses left to accommodate the wounded during the engagement The Mexicans lost between 700 and 800 men. Capt. Walker, who cut his way through to Point Isa bel, as I mentioned in my letter of 11 o'clock this day, was able to reach Gen. Taylor's camp again with his four picked man, and communicate his loss, which caused Uen. Taylor to leave and force his way through. It ap pears the Mexicans did not molest him on his route to : Point Isabel. After his arrival, he placed Brasos St. lago and the Point under martial law, and compelled every man to bear arm*. The force of the Mexican* now on ; the Rio Grande, is said to be 13,000 strong, and reinforce- ; ments looked for. The New York left Point Isabel at 15 o'clock, M. Soon ' after, heavy canonailing was heard, and Capt. Phillips, to ; whom I am indebted for the foregoing, thinks there is no doubt but that an attack bad been made on the Point. Uen. Taylor was, a few days ago, to leave the Point for 1 his camp, so as to unite his forces. 1 A salute, in honor of the victory achieved, is now being 1 fired in the city. The steamer Monmouth left Galveston city on the night of the 8th, with every man that was capable of bearing arms, for Point Isabel As regards the loss on the American side, it is said to have been trifling?1 private and 1 sergeant killed by ex plosion of a shelf The New York will leave to-morrow evening for the Point again. 1 write in haste. You may rely on the foregoing as true, and the whole, so far aa received. I shall, in all probability, go down and take a look at . things. [From the Galveston Gazette, May 9.] Tho steamship New York, arrived from the Brassos Santiago on Thursday evening, bringing news that the Mexicans, having succeeded in interrupting the commu nication between the nrmy opposite Matamoras and Point ; Isabol, General Taylor proceeded with the main body j ofthe army, in order to secure Point Isabel, which was menaced, and open the communication, leaving only 700 ; or 800 men in the camp oppoaite Matamoros. The army proceeded without interruption, but the Mexicans ; thought the diminished force in camp offered a favorable , opportunity for its capture?attacked it, and were repul sed with severe loss?some say several hundred. The ; loss on our side n?t stated, but very insignificant. Our batteries were opened on Matamoras, and reduced the ^>lace to ruins, or noarly so. W This was on the 3d, and the fighting continued until night. "Walker, the well known Texian soldier and spy, then took fortv men to carry the news to Uen. Taylor at Point Isabel, during the night He lost six men on the war, and had his horse shot under him, but got In. Our troops are in fine spirits. Gen. Taylor was to leave , with a large force on Thursday morning, for the camp ! opposite Matamoras. The New York had this news from the Cincinnati, which came out over the bar to take off" the troops carried down. Firing was heard when the New York left The main force of the Mexicans 1s probablv on this side of the river. The Texan schr. Santa Anna has been despatched from Brazos Santiago with communications from Gen. Taylor for the American squadron off" Vera Cruz. The only written information we have had from the i seat of war comes from Capt. Sympton, late of the reve nue service of Texas?now in the employ of Ocn. Tay lor. It is dated May 4. Capt 8. says " The news was Drought to Point Isabel by our friend ; Walker, of Major Hay's command The Mexicans made the attack on our works after Oen Taylor came down here The fight continued the whole day. The U. 8. \ batteries knocked down Matamoras, killing two or three \ hundred Mexicans?they killing only one of oar men, j by the explosion of a shell. The works were so well completed the Mexican shot could not Injure them." 'I Capt. Sympton has written us that he will furnish a de tailed account of the action, and such other information as he oan collect, by the next vessel. [From the New Orleans Bulletin, May 10, T. M ] By the New Vork, Captain Phillips, I'rom tho Brnzos St. Jago, via Galveston, the report is fully confirmed of the Mexicans having thrown themselves in force between the American camp and Point l?abei Capt. Walker, of ? the Texan Hangers, who, it Will We remembered, gal- ( lantly offered to carry communications from Point Isabel to Uen. Taylor, succceded in his desperate enterprise. Gen Taylor, immediately on being made acquainted with the condition of affairs, determined, with h part of his army, to march to Point Isabel, and accordingly on the ' evening of the Wt instant, left his intraochments with from a thousand to twelve hundred men, cavalry, artil- 1 lery, and infantry. He arrived at Point Isabel on the morning of the Od, , without having oncountoaed a single Mexican. On the j morning of the 3d, having heard the firing of artillery la the direction oi MitUMni, C*pt Walker ?u again dis patched immediately to ascertain the oause. Thi* brave man again succeeded in reaching the camp, and on hit return on the Mk. reported that tSe Mexicans finding Oen. Taylor absent from the camp, and his forces divided, took the opportunity to open their battery at Matamoras on the camp; and those on the eastern bank of the Kio Grande, at the same time, made an attack in the rear. The four gun battery in our camp waa immediately opened upon Ma tumoral The Mexican battery waa silenced in thirty minutes, a number of the houses in Matamoras destroyed, and the enemy on the American side of the river compelled to return. But one American was killed, and none wounded. What number of the enemy was killed or wounded, is not known to any decree of certainty. It is reported that as many as 700 wero Killed, and that a sufficient number of houses were not left standing in Matamoras to afford shelter to the wounded. The ultimate result has yet to be known, however, a* the firing was continued at intervals up to the time of the departure of the New Vork from the Brasos, on the 6th, about 1 P. M. Gen. Taylor was preparing to return on that day with supplies. He expected to be attacked on his march, and was fully prepared to meet the cuemv. It was supposed that he would take with him the regulars sent down by the Now Vork, all of whom were landed in safety on the morning of the 0th. As to the number of Mexicans on cither side of the Rio Grande, it is still, in a great measuro, matter of con jecture. Those on this side of the Rio Grande hare al ready been estimated at 3000, and it is not probable that they would cross with a much smaller force. They are now estimated at 6000. The number on both sides of the river is estimated by none at less than 10,000, and by many it is believed to bo as high as 15,000 or 50.000. Santiago and Point Isabel are under martial law, and every man capable is required to bear arms. We regrot to hear that but little has been done in the way of volunteering in Texas. In fact, we do not hear of any measures having been taken to comply with the requisition of Oen. Taylor. We understand that Col. Hay*, of the Rangers, imme diately on hearing of Gen. Taylor's position, inarched to his relief with 400 men, determined to force his way through tho Mexican lines. Gen. Taylor, after his arrival at Point Isabel, despatch ed the schoonor Aleri, under command of Lieut. Wank Renshaw, of the United States brig Lawrence, to Vera Cruz, it is believed with orders to the American squadron to blockade the Mexican ports. In the skirmish which CapL Walker had with the Mexicans, previous to the departure of the RtUp Clara, it is now known that not even the remainder Have re turned into camp safe. Tho bodies of five of them have been found, hut owing to the shocking manner in which the Mexicans have mu tilated them, CapL Walker recognised but two, McClis ter and Radcliffe. The U. S schooner Flirt was to leave the Braqps in a dav or two, with dispatches for New Orleans. The U. 8. brig Lawrence was still at the mouth of the Rio Orande, enforcing the blockade. All well on both vessels. Steam

er Monmouth left on the evening of the 5th, bound to Aransas, for the purpose of bringing every man capable of doing military duty to the camp at St. Jago. [From the New Orleans Picayune, Majr 11.1 With great pleasure we see it mentioned in the Bul letin that the commander of the United States schooner Flirt having obsorved a small encampment of Mexicans on the island at the mouth of the Brasos Santiago, and knowing tho great danger of the point at tho entrance of the harbor being in possession of the Mexicans, landed with his men and dispersed the camn. The reader will recollect that the utmost fear was folt that the Mexicans might fortify a position here which would command the approach to Point Isabel. The steamship Alabama left Oalveston on the morning of Saturday, the 9th, about twelve hours after the New York, and arrived early Monday morning. She brings nothing whatever later from the Rio Grande, there hav ing been no further arrival from Brasos Santiago. Tlie Anticipated Great Battle with the Mexicans. [From the Oalveston News, May 8.1 In addition to the following, from our extra of yesterday, we will state a few other particulars, for which we aro indebted principally to CapL Phillips, of the steam ship New York. When Gen. Taylor left Point Isabel, there was not the slightest doubt entertained that he would have to cut hi* way to his entrenchments through vastly superior num bers of the enemy, who were known to bo posted in large force* among the almost impassable thickets of chaporal on the road, with a determination to cut him olT. if possi ble, in his attempt to regain his other forces. The num ber of the Mexicans is entirely vague and unoertain, though all the statement* agree in e*timating them at not le*s than ten thouiand, while many account* put their number* at fifteen to twenty thouiand. All account* agree, alio, in stating that the Mexican force* were rapid ly flocking in from all quarteri. How many had crossed the river could not be told, though it seems but reason able to presume that a large part of their force will be brought into requisition to dispute the march of General Taylor. They could not but see the importance of cut ting him off, and would doubtless employ all their advan tages of local knowledge, skill in horsemanship, and all their acknowledged resources in stratagem, to accomplish their objecL Gen. Taylor anticipated a formidable and desperate opposition to his march, but determined to ac complish it or perish. It seems, therefore, every way reasonable to suppoie that a decisive and bloody battle was fought yesterday, and we wait with almost painful anxiety to hear the result by the next arrival. Full many a gallant Texan will now envy the few brave spirits who, with Walker to lead them, have such a glorious op portunity to revenge the many wrongs, and inaulta, and cruelties inflicted upon their country. Official Account of til* Fight between Capt. Walker, with his Texan Rangers, and the Mexican Army. We are greatly indebted to a friend in Frank ford for the following letter written by the indefa tigable Capt. Cartlett to Lieut. James V. Hudson. It gives a list of the deserters from the American army, and a semi-official account of the desperate fight between the brave and indomitable Captain Walker and the Mexican army.

The ranging companies at Aus tin and near Goliad were preparing to move westward, to act with Col. Hays. The orders sent by Mr Qatlett, from Oen. Taylor to Col.

We believe there were about two hundred dra goon* lately at Bexar, and aboat sixty at Ana tin.

We understand that this is tne second offer of the Legion made to His Excel lency, and that he has not yet given a definite anawer to the proposal. Should the Legion be enrolled as volun teers, in order to proceed to Mexico, they will meritori ously compete with any body of men on the field of bat tlo. We feel much pleasure in thus making known the praiseworthy decision of the Legion, as we are aware that so able a body of men would not only do credit to the State, but to the United States generally.
