On the lieid ol battle, ol the Palo /tlto, .>0 uuburied .Mexican* weie counted ; they lay upon the extieme i right ul the enemy'* line. leu da>* alter tne battle, over 000 wounded Mexican* were counted in the hospital*, the mo*tot whom had been wounded by.arUllery. 'i he atmospheie of Uie place wa* very much affected by the wounded and oead. it i* worthy of remark, that the wounded Mexicans in j (Sen. Taylor * camp, arc treated with the greatest huma nity and consideration; whilst, on the contrary, the Ame rican prisoners in the Mexican camp, were tieated with great inhumanity, and a total want of regard for their comfort. An immense amount of fixed ammunition, muskets and shell, were found in the magazines at Matamoras. The Americans mount guard every night on the plaz /.a; at relief, 9 A. M., they march oil' to tha tune of Yan kee Doodle. The Mexican police and civil functional ics are allowed by Gen. Taylor to pursue their usual routine. Poimits are liberally granted to merchants and traders to tend off such of their caigoea as are perishable, and the Mexicans are treated with all the consideration that propriety permits. The war, however, is only at its com mencement, and it is generally believed the Mexicans will at least make one bold stand in defence of their ptna tit and the halls ol the Montezuma*. It is supposed tliat Gen. Taylor will wake f'anurgo, about I'J j miles from Matamoras, his principal depot; it will be one ol the positions forming the bate ol future operations, combined with Matamoias and I'oint Isabel: the military disposition will then be completed, should an advance upon Monterey bo deemed expedient. This base will ensure communication and supples, and what will hardly be needed, a lino of retieat. There were about 0000 men at Matamoras, and 2000 at I'oint Isabel. The volunteers are all in fine spirits and eager for the fray. Camp duty becomes irksome, and the cry is oa waid. i [From the Mobile Journal, June 6 J Ejccampmknt, Point Isarkl, May 30.?This is a very pleasant place?equal to any in the South for healthful breezes.

Whilst 1 haTobcen writing this on a arum head, la sol dier's desk; a violent storui has been raging fiom tho nottli. The wind and the rain have each been striving which could do most injury : the wind will carry it, 1 think, eventually, as most of the tents on the prairie aie , vept away, and a schooner or two has gone ashore.

The battle commenced with such ardor that thu tiring of caonon did not cease for a moment, during which the enemy endeavored to follow their course towards Mata moros.in order to suspend the siege of their troops at the fortification; and with such object they set tire to shrub bery and grass so as to form opposite their line a thick smoke by which they succeeded in hiding themselves lroni our view; but I, through necessary operatians, de feated their object on two different occasions. General Taj lor maintained his attack more as a defen se e than an offensive one, using chiefly the best part of his forces?the artillery, protected by one half of his in fantry and all his eavalry; reserving the rest to fortify the turf, at a distance ot "about two thousand yards from the battle-field 1 was anxious to mako a charge on the enemy, because the cannon bails caused great loss on our files, and I or dered Gen Don Annstaslo Tortejon to execute it with the greater part of the cavalry, on our left flank, in or der to give the charge at the same time with the infantry and the rest of the cavalry on the right flank. I ? ns waiting the moment in which General Torrejon should commence the charge, an'1 that the enemy should begin to feel its effect, in order to give the impulse on the rlshtj I.ut the effort waa checked by a countermove ment of a portion of the enemy's lorce that defended a marsh, which prevented the attack. Some of our com|tanies were impatient on account of the loss we had suffered, and they commenced to get out o| order, asking that I should give the commend to ad vance at once, or retreat. At sucu a moment 1 ordered a column of cavalry, under command of Colonel Don Cajetano Montero, to charge, with the view that the pa. ties thrown out of order should resume their |>osit on, and in all possible manner march on tho enemy, who, I wing to the great distance at which they stood. Imd time in fall ba-lt on the lescrve; and night appioaching last, the battle ended, and we remaineil masters of the field. After this result, every measure necessary to the cir cumstances was taken, and our division encamped on a more concentrated ground in the samo batttfe field. The combat was a long and bloody one, which may be better explained by the calculation of the ( oni.nauder jn < hie! of Artillery, Gen Don Tomaa Heqeetoa. who assures me that the enemy fiic.l over 3,000 cannon shot from j to 7 o'clock.

Tnis idea has been a favorite on* with them all along, an<l i? certainly influencing their ho|>ai cf success in the war with us." The Oregon Treaty will dispel this il'usion, and show the Mexican Government, that a speedy peace or a speedy extinction are the only alterna tives from which to make a selection. It is indeed surmised that Mr. Pakenham, after the settlement of the Oregon question, will propose lus mediation between the United States and Mexico. But there will be no necessity for it, nor do we suppose that without advisement he will hastily interfere. We take occasion to announce, for reliable in. formation, the indomitable bravery of Hon. Setii Barton, Solicitor of the Treasury, in a great vic tory he has recently achieved over a messenger in his department. John Pnillips, the messenger of Chas. B. Penrose, was retained, of course, by Mr. Barton, while his own confirmation was held in abeyance ; but after the Senate had approved him, there being no further danger of "a lire in his rear," he boldly ejected Mr. Phil lips and appointed a Mr. Isaac Ankeny, of Car lisle, Pa., in his place. Salary !f?500 a year. For the moral courage exhibited in this removal, Mr. Barton will stand exalted by an admiring posteri ty. Examples like this are well adapted to shed undying lustre over the history of this administra tion. Our private opinion is, that it was an ex ceedingly small potat?e proceeding. Mr. Bancroft has done nothing quite so small as this, though we regard his prosecution of Captain Voorhees as a persecution, unjustified and unmerited, if not absolutely tyrannical. We shall probably have to begin soon to scour up our old armor, nnd to take into hand certain detergent officials, in a manner that will contri bute somewhat to the public service.

Msjor B?o**.?The Journal lately contained an arti cle relating to the late Major Jacob Brown, who was kil led by the bursting of a shell during the bombardment of Matamoras. The facts there stated arc incorrect in some of the particulars. We learn from a gentleman of this city, who has been personally acquainted with Major Brown and his famiiv for upwards of twenty years, that Clarksburg, in Berkshire county, in this State, is believed to have been the native place of this gallant officer, for there his father has resided for many years, and been aided and often visited by his son. The Journal says the Major left no family. This is an error, lie has lelt a wite and two daughters. The former has been an inmate of the McLean As>lum fur ten or twelve years, an) is not now conscious of tho death of her husband His daugh ters were educated at Roxhury. ami until about three years ago resided there in a family, between whom aud the Major there have long existed tho kindest feelings. But having been appointed to the command of the garri son at Peasacola, he took his daughters with him?they having completed their education. Tho youngest has since been married to a surgeon in the United States army, who was attached to his regiment at the time he received his mortal wound. Major Brown was a noble specimen of a man. He was modest an 1 unassuming iu 1,is deportment, and no-nested a heart overflowing with tlio milk of human kindness. As an officcr he was dis tinguished for his courage, military skill, coolness and decision in the hour ot battle, lienerul Tat lor, in his offi cial despatches, pronounces his loss " irreparable." He was an orderly sergeant at the battle of Christler's field, on the bank of the ?t.

Examination in Artillery?Life in the Barracks?Em ployment of time. Tho examination of the cadets of the first or graduating class in artillery, commenced yesterday afternoon, and is now in progress. In this examination, the cadet is re quired to exhibit a thorough knowledge of the mode of aiming and firing cannon, and of commanding the troous of artillery; alio, tiie construction of bombs, rockets, and all pvrotecnic weapons. Tho class exhibits a most in'imate knowledge of every thing pertaining to artillery. Their examination will, probably, be concluded this aftoinoon, when, after a phytieal examination by a sur gical board, they will receive their diplomas and leave the institutioL. After that there will be examinations of the minor classes, then thoso of the now comers prepara tory to their reception as cadets; after which the first and third classos go into encampment, the second class being allowed leave of absence. The academic studies are then suspended for over two months, and the cadets entirely devoted to military exercise*. During the en campment most of the professors and toacbers leave the academy. The idea generally conceived that the two hundred cadets in this institution arc mere boys, who are hero amusing themselves for four years, " playing soldier,'' is a very orroneous ono. A day's visit hero would con vince any conrincablr man to the contrary. From the moment the candidate for admission reports himself here till the time he graduates and leaves, he i< engaged in severe labor and exercise, both mental and physical. In company-with Mr. Hardcastle. a gentlemanly cadet in the graduating class, I this morning pussed through the barracks, and entered the rooms of many of the cadets. In some of the larger rooms, owing to the crowded state of the barracks, there were three and four cadets ; in others only two. Kach one is provided with an iron bed stead. on which is a Imrd mattress with a sufficient amount of clothing l.'pon rising in the morning, how ever, this mattrass is to be folded up, and no cadet is al lowed to lie upon his bed during the day. I have thought that a view ol the manner in which the cadets daily em ploy their time might be of interest, exhibitiag. as it does, the constant necessity of severe mental and phy sical labor. During the summer the " reveille'' "is beaten at Ave o'clock in the morning ; during the win ter at 6. Immediately alter this the roll is called, and every cadet is expected to answer to his name. The time from that to breakfast is employed in cleaning of arms and accoutrements, and in study of the lessons to be recitod during the morning., At seven o'clock the cadets march in squads to the mess hall for breakfast Here they are seated at the word of command, and a) the word "riso"'they leave the table immediately. Im mediately al'ter*breakfast the guard mounting takes place upon the parade ground. From H A. M. till I P. M. the time is occupied in recitation and Ktudy of the les ion* for the day. At 1 o'clock the squads march to din ner, where tho same order and regularity is preserved as at breakfast. After this, half an hour only is allowed for recreation. From '2 to 4 I'. M. is devoted to recitation, study, and drawing. After four o'clock there is usually u drill, or military exercises of some kind for an hour, and then recreation. At sunset there is an evening pa rade of all the cadi ts in full dress. This is one of the finest military lights I ever witnessed. Kvery evolu tion is performed so )>erfectly, with all the accu racy of machinery- Aiter the parade the band perform some martial music, and as tho last strain is dying away upon the still air, the evening gun is fired, whose loud report reverberates among the hills, each one sending back it* echo . at the same moment the flag is tun down from it* (tail', and the ca det* march iwsv to the barracks Immediately after the parade, supper. \t thirty minute* niter supper there i* a call to quarters, an I the time from that till half past nine i* used in atudy. A preparatory signal is then given, at " Tap*,'' at 10 P. V., lights are extinguished ; each cadet is upon his mat'rass, and from that time till morning no sound is heard about the barracks, save the slow and solemn tiead of the guard, as he paces along the terrace. If this is " play,'' heaven preserve us from labor And when it i* taken into consideration, that thi* is continued during four jears, every one-must see tho excessive amount ot lat?ir required. At tho same time the irgtilations and discipline of the academy, and the course of study, are very rigid and complete. I shall give you a specimen of these to-morrow. Kxamina tions will probably rloae this week; when I understand the cadet* intend having a bull, and merry making J he hotel is kept constantly filled with people, coming going. Among tho arrivals yesterday were those of Hon. Garrett Davis and lady, of Kentucky, and Fx Go vernor Hranch, of Florida. Secretary of tho Navy under General Jackson.
