THE MILITARY ENTHUSIASM or *n Important Intelligence. We learn by the Telegraph, that the schooner F. A. Brown had arrived nt Charleston, in eight days' passage from Havann. She brings the important intelligence, that the two Mexican steamers, the Montezuma and Gua daloupe, taking advantage of the nbsenre of our squadron, had slipped out of Vera Cruz and had arrived at Havana under English colors. It may now be expected that these steamers will be immediately fitted out as privataers, to net against our eomraerce. Will it not, therefore, be necessary fix our packet ships to go heavily armed T H these steamers shoald capture a half a dozen rwnoof our packets, with their valuable cargoes,the Mexican government would be enabled to carry an the war longer than they otherwise could do. 8<mm of our waste',-n exchanges speak of '? a nob sxsmple that has jtu t been set by the Rev.

Button Transcrtft, June 3. Blaffrmpbiml Sketch of General Taylor. ?*? ???? 'wu.wing sketch of the military services of < General Taylor, ... uo.t?.o w u... politan. Gen. Taylor is a Kentuckian by birfh.andi* said to have been born in 1700, which would make him Mi years of age- According to the OrikopolUon, he en-, terod the army in 1808, Immediately alter the attack on the Chesapeake, and has been in the service of his coun try from that time to the present Having entered the army as a lieutenant of infantry, he had risen to the command of a company at the beginning of the last war. For his gallant defence of Fort Harrison, on the 4th September, 1813, President Madison conferred upon Mm the brevet rank pf major, andheis now the oldest brevet in th? amy. In 18S3 he became the colonel of the 8th infantry ; with this regiment he went to Florida in ISM, where he was always foremost in danger. On the Sttth December, 1839, Col. Taylor, at the head of a detachment of men, composed of parts of the 1st, 4th and 0th regiments of U. 8. Infantry and some Missouri volunteers, met about 700 Indians, under Alligator, Sam Jones, and Coe-coo-che, on the banks of the O-ke-cho bee This battle was sought by the Indians, for the day be fore the engagement Col. Taylor received a challenge from Alligator, telling him where to And him, and ban tering him to come on. CoL Taylor desiring nothing better, immediately pushed on at a rapid march to the ex pected battle ground, fearful that the wily Indian might change his purpose. The Indiana had a strong position ia a thick awaasp, covered in front by a small st roam, whose quicksands rendered it almost impassable, but Col. Taylor pushed through the quicksands and swamps in the face of a deadly Are from a concealed foe, driving the Indiana before him. The action was long and severe. The Indians yielding the ground inch by inch, and then only at the point or the Bayonet. After three hottrs of bloody contest, the Indians were routed and pursued with great slaughter until night This was the last stand the Indians ever made In ?large body, and the only instance in which they voluntarily gave battle. Though Cel. Taylor won the dav, it was at the expense of 1M killed and wounded, more than one-fourth of his whole force. Two colonels, (Colonel Thompson of the &th infantry, and Col. Gentry of the Missouri Volunteers,) fall at the head of the troops. Capt Vanswearingen and Lieutenant* Brooks and Carter also foil In tbe engagement During the whole of the engagement, Col. Taylor remained on horseback, cheering his men to the conflict, and exposed to the Indian rifle af every moment For this battle, Mr. Poinsett, Secretary of War, ren dered merited praise to all engaged, iu his communica tion to Congress. The brevet of Brigadier General was conferred on Col. Taylor, and he was gtven the chief

command in Florida, which he resigned in 1810, alter four or five years' arduous and indefatigable service in tha swamps and hammocks of Florida. Alter his retirement from Florida, he was aadgned to the command of the First Department of the Army, in cluding the States of Louisiana, Mississippi, kc., with his head-quarters at Fort Jessap, Louisiana. His position gave him the oommand of the " Army of Occupation," but the u?are ol the service would have justified the government in assigning to that command either of the six general officer* or the regular army, whose rank Is higher than his. But it may be fairly pre sumed that the high character, gallant serviees, and mat experience of Ota Taylor, aside from his geographical position, pointed him out as the appropriate ooiaiaaader of an arm*, which was toplant our flag on the bank of the lUo dA Net*. U*a l'aylor Is about M years of age; is a man of much general information, and ah MeetMot and tried soldier; a prudent and skilful commahder, whose traits of character are. a wiee precaution in pro viding for the hour of trial, and a tearless, reckless courage la battle. Opinio** In Canada an the Csursfi af tfce AaglXmii Bace. The ahovo [an account of the two brilliant battles.] ap pears in the Montreal paper* of yeeterday morning.?. We candidly confess that we place but little faith in the accuracy or the statement, but look upon it in the light of a second "bombardment and total destruction of Mua. moras, with a loss to the Mexicans of 700 men." The American prints are so notorious for their bombast In respect to every matter connected with the star spangled banner, and the glory and power of the model republic, tb.t one cannot readily give credenoe to their "glorious vi lories" upon no better authority than that afforded by individual* from the neighborhood of the seat of wsr.? Apart from the suspicious character of these accounts, there are divers discrepancies in the items of news givon above. We are at the commencement told that "two tre mendous engagements had taken place between the American and Mexican troops, in which the latter lost, it i* *aid, threohundred men." We subsequently read that the Mexicans loit in both actiooa, st least twelve hun dred men '. Again, in the second battle, we are informed the Mexicans loat six hundred men, and that after tha first two hundred were found dead on the field of battle. How do these statements agree T The flrst encounter is reported to hare occurred on the 7th. but the second is Severally dated the ?th and ffih. This discrepancy of detee h not, however, of any greet importance ? We ant notice an exchange of prisoners alleged to have taken place sulweqnent to the baule. (the second.) We are fir*t informed that Captain Thorn ton and Lieutenant Harden were reloceed. ?nd that Lieutenant Dees was not demanded. In the following paragraph It le asserted that two American officers hud been offS>*?d In exchange far General Vegn, captured by . the Asserloona,tast that it was declined to give hint in ex | iwk. So fsr as we can ascertain but three American e?eers have fallen into the hands af the MexteenaTihe three numed shove ; how. therefore, can these twe nmaaiMihs ho reconciled 1 That ooe or 9two ronconWoohevo taken place between these opposing wo do not doubt, teaMsaUl en official report of the ? in given, we look upon the whole sflair as of an upocryphal character.
