We sub/oin tho following particulars of the capture of (Jen. Voga by Capt. May. It will be seen that the Mexican General, who is now in Now Orleans,is a prisoner of war in the true sense of that term, and deserves to be re spected as a brave officer, and gallant gentleman :? The battle commenced by heavy cannonading on both sides, Gen Taylor, in passing his lines, accosted Capt. -May, of the 3d dragoons, and told him?'"Your regiment has never done any thing yet?you must take that bat tery." 11c said nothing, but turned to his command, and said ?"We must lake that battery?follow !" He made a charge with three companies?at least, with the remain der 01 three companies?supported by tho ftth and 8th regiments of infantry. They cleared the breastwork, rode over the battery, wheelod, and came through the enemy's line, whilst tho lire of the infantry was so deadly in its effect, as to carry all before it Capt. May made a rut at an officei as lie'charged through; on his return, he found him standing between cannon wheels, lighting a hero. He ordered him to surrender. He was asked if he was an officer ' ( apt. May answered him in the affirmative, when he presented his sword, remark ing, " Vou receive General Vega ? prisoner of war." Mllllary Movements In the United State*? Organization of Volunteer*?Spirited Con duct. [Krom the New Orleans Picayune, May 17.] It will bo perceived that the Governor has issued a proclamation, declining to receive any more volunteers, tho requisition of Gen. Taylor having been filled with the completion of the four regiments.

A Urge number of names wara enrolled yesterday. Se veral companies are full ? some of them have an excess of men, an J all will undoubtedly have their complement* an l lie ready to proceed to the scene of action without delay. We nnder*tand that at a meeting of the officers of the different companies of tho Legion it was agreed that they encamp at Oakland on Thursday, end embark for New Oi leans on Sunday on the Alexander Scott and Diana. Capiain Pennington's horse company, we learn, has been divided into two companies, We learn liom the Cummonwrallk. that Gen.

The CommnnweaUh says.that the services of many of the most accomplished military gentlemen in the State have been tendered to liov, Owsley. On Monday. rapt. Win Henry Maxey tendered the services of the " Oiccn River Boys," a volunteer compa ny of infantry, of Oieene county, to the Governor.

Tlie St. Louis papers say, that throe volunteer compa nies at Quincy are leady to march to tlie assistance ot the army in the South, whenever thoir service* shall be re quired. [Krom the Cincinnati Gaiette, May 21 ] Tlie Montgomery Guards, of Columbus, a newly form ed and finely disciplined military company of that city, are beating up for recruits in order to tender their ser vice* to the country, if needed. Some thirty or forty have, says the Journal, volunteered, and the company aie still diligently recruiting The German companies of that City have also held a meeting to make arrangements for proceeding to the field of action if their services should be required. In Cincinnati, the .Montgomery Guard* and Cadet* have offered their services, and, it it said, nearly a thou sand men will be in readiness to serve if further heip shall be needed. [From the Norfolk Beacon, May 23.] We understand that Governor Smith lias been called upon by the President of the United States, for three re giments (30 companies, 2,310 men) of infantry, to be oom posed of volunteers, enrolled, and held in readiness to muster in the service of the United States. Koch com pany, we learn, will consist of tU privates only, not over 45, nor under IS years oi age, and in full physical strength and vigor. [From the Baltimore Clipper, May 25.] U.S. Taoopt at Foht were informed yesterday that companie* F. andK. of the artillery, now stationed at Fort McHenry.had received order* to pro ceed to the Rio Grande and reinforce Gen.Taylor. They have been for some time holding themselves in readineu for marching order*, and now expect to start in ? few days. We were informed yesterday, by Captf.

Two companie* have been formed in Washington, and will be joined by three companies from thi* city, under the command of Capt*.

Commissions are expected thla morning for the officers in the three companies from Baltimore, who, of coursc, enter the service as belonging to the District of Columbia. They will be mustered into the service immediately, but whether in Washington or Baltimore, is not yet determined on. [From the Philadelphia North American, May *26.] The death of M^or Ringgold, the accomplished offi cer, is a heavy loss to the country. He had lieenentrMst ed with the revision of a system of tactics for our army, | and devoted much time and study to improving upon the ! Kngiish and French systems. His corps was as tine a one as any; service could boast He leaves unfinished, wc think, a work which he was preparing on the utility and practicability of the flying artillery arm in our service. Major R.'* constitution was much impaired by hi* long campaign* in Florida; but, passionately attached to the profession of arms, he still remained in the army and died a martyr to hit country.

[Krom the Norfolk Beacon, May 23.] Order* were received at *he Navy Yard yesterday, to fit out the U. 8. brig Truxton. She is to be commanded j by Commander Carpender, destination unknown. The Camanche Indians. The last Austin Democrat states that newt has reached Austin, from good authority, that the Camanches refuse to treat with or meet the United States commissioners,' and the inference is that these Indians have been tam pered with bv Mexican cmissarios. The Governor, at the request of tho Legislature, was to appoint commis sioners to ascertain the situation and disposition of the Indian*-, while further steps were taken to protect the frontier settlements from their depredations, should they be disposed to acts of hostility. More Canadian Opinion* on the Mexican War. [Krom the Montreal Gazette. May 22] Wo have intelligence lrora one portion, at least, of the American force,to the 29th ult The day before, an Ameri can detachment of seventy men was driven in by the Mexicans, about twenty miles above Point Isabel. The captain's name was Walker, in more senses than one, for he proved himself one of the quickest travellers of the paity. In running away, only two of hi* men uere able to Keep up with turn, and he got tafe into the camp at Point Isabel, ?t their head. Six others came in after him The account he gave was this, and our readers may just belie* e as much of it us they like ? ? ? ? ? But he says he fought the tiiteen hundred for fifteen min ute*, and must have kllie I at least thirty of them, Which we take to be as as Kxl-taiPa celebrated combat for an hour by Shrewcbur} clock. So little enthusiasm do the people of Texas themselves show, that but seventeen volunteer* had quitted Galves ton. Perhaps they are acting more wisely in waiting to defend their own soil, which they have done swcce?slul ly before. than in joining the iuvasion of Mexioo In the Cnited States, recruiting lor voluuteer* wa* an entire failure Not ono-half of those who had sent in thfcir names had mustered, and none had embark <d. We shall see whether the militia system will answer any better. Very many persons doubt whether Ta.i lor is really in such difficulty its is supposed. It is certain tht.t he moved to Matamoras under superior order*, and it i* surmised that the object was to place him in a positic n which he might maintain, but which would compel Congress, I from a regard for the national honor, to grant the sup ' plies necessary for finishing the war. Brit whether the I affair is a trick, or a blunder on the part of tho PiesiJent, its profligacy, in a military point ot vie w, is the same: for we can call it nothing but a profligate disregard of human life to move a very weak corps into an enemy's country without taking any pains to caver their retreat, or having any reserve to sustain them in cose of reverse. It is now stated that Point Isabel lias a garrison of four to five hundred men. and is in a condition t? hold out.? The American papers are talking of blockading the whole of the west, a* well as the Gulf co:i*t of Mexico. I At tbe same time, they are reviving a stipulation made in the treaty with Spain, in 1790, to tne effect that in caso ol war neither party shall allow privat eering or grant 1 letters of marque, and parties contravening the stipula tion shall lie deemed pirates. There can t>e no doubt that the revolt of Mexico freed it from all the obligations of the treaties of Spain. Supreme Court. Present, the Chief Justice and Jud ges Beardsley and Jewett.

It will be seen that we have received several important letters from the "Army of Occupation," giving the par ticulars of each bsttle?details that will be lound in the ofticiul dcspatchea only. Accompanying these letters we have received an excellent and very correct plan of the position of the two armies at each engagement.

Steam Ship Ureal Britain* This steamer does not "stake thirteen knots an hour," : or she would have been here before this. She is now in , her seventeenth day. The News from the &lo Cirando?Invasion j of Mexico. The additional from the Rio Grande, 1 which was reocived yesterday by telegraph, and ' published in detail in our columns, indicate*, be yond the possibility of doubt, that a campaign of I no ordinary magnitude, is now opened between , the American government and the existing usur- , pers of Mexico. General Paredes, with the greater ' proportion of his forces, is now on the irontier. i It is the last chance of that military chieftain for j the safety and permanence of his usurpation. 1 We have no doubt that the present Government ' of Mexico will muster their whole force?-exhibit ; their whole strength, and put forth every energy j in order to stop die invasion of that republic, by ' the American forces?even before they consent to an urmistice, or renew a negotiation. From what we loam, there is every reason to believe, that the j British and French governments will carefully abstain from any direct interference in the present movements between Mexico und the United States; yet we have no doubt that the British capitalists, merchants, and traders, in Mexico, liave fomented the spirit and furnished the usur pers in that republic with the means by which they have been able, thus far, to present any ob struction to the invading forces of the American government. The [utter defeat of the miserable diplomacy of both these governments, in the pre- - liminary steps for the annexation of Texas, has probably taught diem more prudence hereafter. The "man in the white hat," so famous in Texas diplomacy, is now in this city ; and the "man in I the motutache"?it is not known where he is. We j have the best reasons for believing, that die more i | sensible portion ol' die British government and ! the British people?who may reason upon this in- ; vasion of Mexico by the American forces?will j look upon it as a new era for the development of ! the mighty resources of this vast republic, under new and invigorating auspices,that will follow the ; successful invasion. There may, indeed, be a oonllict in the minds of die English government, between military jealousy and ambition on one '? side, and new commercial markets and enter prise on the other; but the latter will probably gain the day for the present. England and Franco will decline any other interference than that of friendly mediation. In the meantime, it is asked, what will be the next steps of the American government?the next movements of the American army 1 We have the best reasons for believing that the invasion of Mexico will now take place, planned on the most gigantic scale. The President is au thorized, already, to assemble in the field nearly ] seventy thousand regulars and volunteers. Gen. Scott is about to be put at the head of this vast force, if General Taylor does not snatch the lau rels and command from his hands, by demolish ing all the Mexicans that come in his way before General Fcott can reach the Rio Grande. A fleet of fifty vessels of war, with an amount of nearly tuxnty-fivt ihoutand seamen, will be afloat on obth coasts of Mexico in less than six months?a display of Anglo-American bravery, military ca pacity, and indomitable energy, that will astonish ; our common race?theAnglo-Saxon race?in Eng land, and all others in the world. Besides this, there is every probability that an armed volun tary emigration, of one hundred thousand per ; sons,will follow in the rear of the invading army? au emigration which will mix and blend in turn with the Mexican people, and teach them the true principles of civil liberty and commercial enterprise. The emigration to Oregon and Call | t'ornia may pause for the present?and that tb j Mexico begin with the progress of the invading i army. The opening of the campaign by General Taylor, or, as he has been called on the field, "Old Kough-and-Ready," is merely the first act in the ' drama. In the meantime, it is asked, what is the object of the American government t It is proba ble that, as yet, no definite plans have been ma i tured by Mr. Polk and his cabinet. The diplo matic correspondence which has been published, completely justifies the course of the American government, and upsets all the clamor against the administration, that has been attempted, for the present. We have no great opinion of the high abilities or magnanimity of Mr. Folk himself; ! but we cheerfully admit that Mr. liuchanan, in bis diplomatic correspondence?that Mr. Slidell,in his following out the instructions?that Mr. Marcy, in his military documents?and that Mr. Bancroft, also, in his doings, have all anted wj> h becoming energy, discretion, propriety, and good sense, in our Mexican relations, tit least. They have lightly served their country ; niwl we willingly award to them tlutff lull credit on this question. They must now prosecute the war on , tins question with the highest genius and energy; and with the weapons which Congress lin? put in their hands, they can do so successfully. Califor^ nia must V?e ours ; Monterey must be ours ; San Franciso must be ours ; and if Mexico wishes it, we trust that the 70,000 American troops that arc about to be precipitated upon the halls of Mon tezuma, supported by the 50 -hips, and men to match,on both coasts,with the 100,000 military em igrants that will follow in the rear, will teach that divided, insulted, and plundered race, the way to I reorganize a firm government, and to command the respect of the woild. Mexico, under American rule, would be one of the richest and most en terprising countries in the world. Mexico, under even her own rulers, and with an American army of emigrants, would be enabled to distinguish her self amongst the nations of the earth. This, the most magnificent drama of the nine teenth century, opens. The first, act of this drama ha* begun With brilliancy and glory. We must go I ahead. "Old Rough and Ready," forever !

We shall also take occasion, during the progress or our visit, to see the princi pal newspaper editors and proprietors of all these capitals, and explain to them the new position of the United States in its relations with Mexico. At the same time, it will be our aim to do away with that prejudice and jealousy which exists in vari ous quarters, as well as in the European press, in relation to the ambitious designs of the United States. Our object will be to promote courtesy between the newspaper representatives of the two countries, as far as our limited ability and ip ilueuce can accomplish, and thereby aid and strengthen the poacefhl and honorable relations between Europe and America. From wBat we have heard, from the best and most authentic quarters, we have every reason to believe that neither the British nor the Frencli governments will interfere, by force, be tween the United States and Mexico, in the pre sent war. In fact, a re-establishment of the Mex. ! ican republic upon the solid and durable basis of a free government, similar to that of the United States, will be rather a benefit than an injury to those powers. It will increase the trade and com merce which will flow from that country in a state of peace, and will counter-balance all other am bitious aspirations. A good and courteous under stundiug between the representatives of the Ame rican and European prose, is,therefore,neoessary, to aid and assist in maintaining peace and peace ful relations between the two continents. Besides theso objects of a public character, we shall also visit the prinoipal watering places of Franee and Germany, and endeavor to transmit vivid pictures of the state of sooiety in those fash ionable rosoits, as compared with similar places of resort at Saratoga, and ether watering places in the United States. These sketches will ralieve thc heaviness, and lighten, a great deal, the more important pictures in connection with the politi cal and commercial relations of the two great oon? tinents. Thk Magnetic Telegraph.?This great line of communication will be opened iu a few days, between Washington and New York. In antici pation of this opening, we have made arrange ments to procure the latest intelligence transpir ing at Washington, both Congressional and gen eral, including news from the seat of war, which will be published the next morning in the Herald, simultaneously with the publication of the same intelligence in the Washington papers. As far as the telegraph has extended, which has been in operation between this city and Washington, it has given us a great deal of impor tant news, since the beginning of the campaign be tween the United States and Mexico. It is obvious, however, that the various companies will h?ve to 'organize their lines under a more efficient corpt of operators, who will understand the necessity of energy, integrity and fidelity to the public, of whom they are most important agents. We conld mention a great many deficiencies, which have been exhibited in many instances during the last few weeks; but we forbear, believing that the several companies will remodel their organization satisfactorily. If this ia not done, the government will be obliged to take it in their own hand, and to make it one of the most efficient instruments of public correspondence, which will be under its sole management and responsibility. Thk Arsenal.?A visit to this department would prove interesting to the tourist or citizen, at this crisis in particular, when our capabilities for defence, in case of a hostile attack, demand the attention of every patriot and citizen. This building, which is situated in Centre street, con* tains the enormous amount of 60,000 stand of arms, together with 500 pieces of ordnance of dif ferent calibre. The trophy room contains several field pieces which were taken from the British in the last war. Tho whole are in excellent con dition, and capable of immediate use. There has been much agitation, for the past few years, in the Board of Common Council, about the location of this necessary and useful public building. In comparison to its size, the vast quantity of arms contained in it, and arranged with extreme neat ness and regularly, would astonish any person viewing the outward dimensions of the building. The erection of a suitable building for the safety and protection ol' our military stores, will doubt less soon excite the attention of the authorities.? We learn that New York could, in twenty-four hours, bridg into the field an effective force of forty thousand troops! Good. Theatrical and Musical. Pars Theatric ?This (rest temple of tha legitimate drains wa* crowded to overflowing, last evening, by a very 'elect and fashionable audience, that aaaamblad to witness the performance of Mr. and Mrs. Kean, in Tal fourd'a celebrated tragedy of" Ion." It is needleis to say , that the acting on the occasion wai all I hat could be de . tired by the large audience, while the enthusiastic greet ing that these distinguished artists received, on their , first appearancc since their return from the South, must have been highly gratif) ing to them. They will appear , again this evening, in shakspeare'a comedy of " Twelfth I Night, or What V ou Will"?Mr Kean taking the part of Duke Oraino, and Mrs Kean that of Viola. Bowcav Thfatri?"Romeo and Juliet" was performed last evening at the Bowery?Miss Julia Dean playing , Juliet, Mrs. O. Jones Romeo, snd Mr. Scott Mercutio The house was thronged by a discriminating and faah ionable audience, and the play was put upon the stage in a manner which reflects great credit on the manager, ; Mr. Jackton. Of all Shakespeare's plays, we have ever considered " Romeo and Juliet" ss his master piece. It lias been said by a great critic that " whatever is most intoxicating in the odor of a southern spring, languishing in the song of the nightingale, or voluptuous in the first opening ofthe rose, is to be found in this poem." We i visited the theatre last night anticipating a rich treat from our previous knowledge of the ariittei who ware to de lineate the principsd characters? and we can truly aay j our expectations were more than realized. Miaa Dean's conception of Juliet was not only iust, but the execution ! at a whole, was powerful and brilliant Miss Dean pos I sestes in fact all the elements of a great actress, and she 1 is rapidly acquiring a complete knowledge of stage busi > ness. which of course is only to be obtainedt?y long pracUce | and study. Upon her appearance last evening, ahe was j greeted by several distinct round* of applause, and it was | well deserved. Her Juliet was the Juliet of Shakspeare? 1 the ideal Juliet which we dream of in the heaven which lies about us in our infancy," when the heart reveli in the luxury of its own thoughts. It was no boarding school miss, lisping about what she never felt; but the refined, delicate, impassioned, and impulsive creature, i whose deep, passionate, soul-absorbing love, time could | not change, nor death obliterate. The balcony scene? i the scene after the marriage, and particularly the solilo 1 quy, commencing, " What if this mixture do not work j at all," were all deserving of the highest praise. But we do not think she showed sufficient astonishment, grief, or energy, W uttering the line, in the last scene, to Ro meo?'' Death's in thy face !" It was too tame and spirit i less. But, with this exception, snd a few extravagant | gestures, it was a most finished and excellent perform ance. It was truly Miss Dean's greatest triumph. Mrs. ! (ones' Romeo, and Mr. Scott's Msrcutio, were also per formances of gieat merit. "Romeo and Juliet" will be repeated this evening, with the cast of last night, and we hope to see a crowded house. Greenwich Theatre.?To-night "Tha Robbers of Savoy," the vaudeville of "Wilful Murder," and tha pughable farce of "The Merry Cobbler," are to? be pro duced at thia beautiful house. The selection of these light pieces is well judged, and by strict attention to amusing, light dramas, such as are produced in the Olympic, there can be no doubt but Mr. Tomlinson will receive a liberal share of public patronage for his exer tions and loss in the erection of this splendid theatre. Castle Garden?Tha unpleasantness ofthe weather last evening, cauaed the attendance at this delighttai place of resort, to be smaller than usual. We know of no place where more real enjoyment can be obtained on these warm evenings, than this saloon. It is capable of accommodating ten thousand persons, aad from Its situa tion, exposed as It is, to the sea breesea, it is the coolest and ple.isantest summer lounge in the city. But it is not alone the airiness of the situation that contributea to the enjoyment of the visiter. A magnificent orchestra executes, during the evening, some or the choicest com positions, besides which there is tome excellent vocali zation by Mr. Ilolmaa. There are aome hundred cosmo rsmas ranged around, representing the most remsrkable see net y in every portion of the world. Of the splendor of the saloon itself, it is needless to spesk. With it* beautiful refreshing fountain, and its magnificent paint ing*, it resemblee a fairy palace, rather than a modern sakiou. H.m *?'
