H1GHLV IMPORTANT AM VERY LATE FROM fflEXIOO AND THE PACIFIC BLOCKADE OF VERA CRUZ. The Mexicans Declaring against Paretic*, it. it. [From the Pemacola Gazette, June A.] The U. S. steatn?r Mississippi, Capt. Fitzhugli? armed at Pensacola, on Thursday last. She brings as passenger?, Pr. Wood, U. 8. N.; bearer of important despatches from Coin. Sloat, commanding officer of .he naval lorces or. the Pa cific; J. Parrot', IT. S. Consul at Mazatlan ; Mr. Dimond, U. S. Consul at Vera Cruz ; and seven other Americans from Mexico. Vera Cruz was blockaded L/ the U. S. aliipf Raritan and Falmouth, and brig Soaicrs. The St. Mary's is off Tainpico. The American bark Eugenia, Captain ikixor from New York, belonging to P. A. Ilargou evaded the blockade, though pursued by the boat of our men-of-war, and got into Vera Cruz. All the other Anicrican vessels had left the por of Vera Cruz. We learn that the Mexicans had decl&rei against Paredes. An English lleet of fourteen ships, including three line-ol-battle ships, were cruising off the west coast of America. It appears that Mr. Parrott is only about twenty days from Mazatlan; both he and Dr. Wood were allowed to pass through Mexico without mo lestation. The Mississippi sailed from Vera Cruz on Sa turday last. U. S. frigates Cumberland and Potomac, are working with all expedition in getting on board provisions and water, and will be ready for sea to-morrow; the John Adams, we learn, sailed to-day ; the bark Dana, Capt. Chase, arri ved at this port on Wednesday last, reports hav ing spoten on the 25th day of April, off Abaco, U. S. steamer Princeton, and again on the 26th, off the Isaacs, supposed to be boiuid to Vera Cruz. Important Intelligencer EMBARGO DECLARED BY MEXICO. YANKEE SPIRIT. Affairs* on the Rio Grande, fcf. Set, be. The baique Texidore, Captain Major, arrived at Now Orleam, on the &th instant, from Tobaico, whence ahe sailed on the 28th ult. There waa a great excitement prevailing there among the rerjdent Americans, in consequence of tlio reception of ft'.i order for an embargo on all American vessels. The order came by express from Mexico, and was im mediately followed by an order lor the capturo of Capt. Major's vessel, and at the same time .'M) Mexican soldiett weie placed in charge of a New Orleait* schooner.? Theie were 400 Mexican soldiers in Tobaaco. Captain Alsjor was guarded ta.liis ves <e> by twenty of his friends, and the soldiers were afraid to make him pri soner. The schooner Captain Cox, of New Orteans, was seiz ed and the crew imprisoned. Several Kngliih vessels were in jiort. No American men of war' ware seen by lira Texidore. The steamer Ventura was ordered to Ire up and give chase to Cantain Major. Ilia vessel had one gun un board, whi< n was cut up in small leiigi (is for shot '* to ?mash the Ventura's coffee mill," as the captain says.? Mhe did not, however, venture out den. Ta) lor intends to take up hie line of march for Monterey and New Leon in ten da\ a, takine e"0 route Camaigo, Mier, fcc.,fcc. I'apt. '1 hornton has been placed under arrest by i'rder of <ien. Taylor, on charges of disoba<lienco of orders ,*od uegloct of duty, in suffering his command to beiurprist Oen. Worui had arrived at K\>rt Biowu on the J7lh" ult. The common impicssion a? the camp aeemed to be that no further movement wov be made for twelve or fourteen days, unless order* ?,ere received from Wash ington. 1 he presont camp of the enemy is in New Leon, and there are laurels to be pluc ked by our soldiers from the tree ot tame It is said that the plac? is not fortified, and it i* garri soned only by about 60O Mexican soldiers. The Army or Occupation. [fr rom the New Orleans Picayune, June ] The " army of invasion" would be a bettei designation >f tho force under jn. Taylor, as the American troops Javo crossed the Rio Grande, and arc now in possession if the territory of the enemy. But as the army has gained credit under its own title, it will bo well to keep ui* nomenclature ' tntil it has done greater-thing* under l* new one. We understand that the next demonstration of Oen. Taylor will be i',pon tho city of Monterey. This plate s about UO teases from Matamoraa, and ii approached jy a difficult i oa,i running through an arid and ill-wa ered country^. jt 1( the principal city of the province of Sew Leon, commands tho entrance of the tabic and*, or tl jC interior of Mexico, through the passes of he Sierra 4 tvladre.

Camargo will be the >asi* ut his operation* upon Monterey, and this jwint nust Lie first ma<ite the de|>ot of supplies, and entrenched n a u\ lo capabl e ol sustaining a siege. K waa the de> ign of General Taj lor, as we learn, to be ?t '.lonterey by tne first of July; but the want ot trans ports to convc y his store* to Camargo, I.as compelled nim to delay fu nher progret* in the enemy'* country till thu deficiency i* removed. Camargo is situated upon the Rio Urai .tie, and presenta an admirable foundation Tor ? displa y upun the interior, nnd fiom Camargo to Monterey is, about 40 leagues, or liO miles. The coun try lying t Atween that town and Monterey is more fer tile man ' between Matamoras and Monterey?conse quently, uis altogether better for the army to proceed iromcei aargo uj on Monterey than iroin Matamoraa. With a view to ex|>o?li.ing the march of the army, L^apt. ? anders. who has distinguished himself in the ad nimbi t dou?ncc? he lit* constructed about Point Isabel, no* b? an dispatched to thk city to proem e the necessary ,K>rt*.

The facts there (tated aro incorrect in some of the particulars. We learn from a gentlcmin of this city, who ha* been personally acquainted with Major Brown and his familv 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 thore 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 ha* been an inmate of the Mcl.ean Asylum fur ten ortwelve years, and i* not now conscious of tho death of her liusbaud. Ill* daugh ter* were educated at Roxbury, awl until about three years ago resided there in a family, between whom and the Major there have long existed the kindest feelings. But having been appointed to the command of the garri son at Pen.sacola, he took hi* daughters with him?they having completed their education. The youngest ha* tince been married to a inrgeon in the united State* army, who was attached to bis regiment at the time he leceivcd his mortal wound. Major Brown was a noble ipecimen of a inan. He wa* modest an 1 unasHiiming in Lis deportment, and no-sewed a heart overflowing with tho milk of human kindness. A* an officer be was dis tinguished for hi* courage, military skill, coolness and decision in the hour ol battle. <>eneral Tavior, in his offi cial despatches, pronounces his loss " irreparable." He was nn orderly sergeant at the hattlo of Christler's field, on the bank of the ?t. Lawrence,during the last war with (treat Britain, and for his gallant conduct in that action he received a commission. Since the |>eace of 1815, Ma jor iirown has been employed on the staff a groat portion of the lima Hi* sounU judgment, hi* integrity, and bu siness capacity, rendered him a valuable officer in time of peace as well a* war. He served two or three yean in the memorable Florida campaign. He passed some years at Little Rock. Arkansas, engaged in matters con nected with our Indian relations. While there he was chosen President of the Hank of Arkansas, an office which he thought proper to decline, as incompatible with hi* situation us an officer of the army. Thi* gallant officer received hi* fatal wound while superintending the la bors of the *?ldier* in constructing the " bomb-proof*'' of the fortification, opposite Matamorns. His leg wa* shattered by the fragment of a shell, an.l while ho was conveyed to the operating station, he exhorted the sol diers whom he passed to do their duty faithfully, and never givo up the fort!

Eramination m Artillery ?Life in the Barrackt?Em ployment of time. Tho examination of the cadets of the first or graduating class in artillery, commenced yesterday afternoon, ond is now in progress. In this examination, the cadet is re quired to exhibit a thorough knowledge of the mode of aiming and firing cntinon, and of commanding the troops of artillery; alto, tiie construction of bombs, rock<rts, nml all pvrotecnic weapons. Tho class exhibits a most in'imate knowledge of every thinir pertaining to artilleiy. Their examination will, probably, be concluded this aftomoon, when, after a physical examination by a sur gical board, they will receive their diplomas and leave tho iiistitulioL. After that there will be examinations of the minor classes, then those of the now comers prepara tory to their reception as cadets; after uhich the first and third classes go into encampment, the second class being allowed leave of absence. Tho academic, studies are then suspended lor over two months, and the cadets ! entirely devoted to military exercises. During the en campment most of the professors and teachers leave the academy. The idea generally conceived that the two hundred cadets in this institution aro mere boys, who are hero amusing themselves for four Tears, ?' playing soldier," is a very erroneous ono. A JaVs visit here would con vince any coni'incahlr man to tho contrary. From the moment the candidate for admission reports himself here till the timo he graduates and leaves, be j-i engaged in severe labor and exercise, both mental and physical. In company with Mr. ilardcastle, a gentlemanly cadet in the graduating class, I this morning passed through the barracks, rind entered the rooms of many of tho 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. f'.ach one is provided with an iron bed stead. on which is a hard mattrass with a sufficient amount of clothing t'pon rising in the morning, how ever, this mattrass is to be folded up, and no cadet is al lowed to lio upon his bed during the day. 1 have thought that a view of the manner in which the cadets daily em ploy their timo might bo of interest, exhihitiag, as it does, the constant necessity of severe mental and phy sical labor. During the summer the " reveille'' is beaten at five o'clock in the morning ; during the win ter at 6. Immediately alter this tho roll is called, and every cadet is expected to answer to his name. The time from that to breukfast is employed in cleaning of arms and accoutrements, and in study of the lessons to be rocitod 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 "rise"' they leave tho table immediately. Im mediately af(er*lireakfast the guard mounting takes place upon the parade ground. From 8 A. M, till 1 P. M. the time is occupied in recitation and study of the les sons for the day. At 1 o'clock the squads march to din ner, where the same order and regularity is preserved as at breakfast. After this, half an hour only is allowed lor recreation, from to 4 I'. M. is devoted to recitation, study. and drawing. Alter four o'clock there is usually a drill, or military exercises of some kind for an hour, and then recreation. At sunset there id hii evening pa rade of all tho cadtita in full dress. This is ona of the finest military sights I ever witnessed. Kvery evolu tion is performed so perfectly, with all the accu racy of machinery. Alter the parade the band perform some martial music, and as the last strain is dying away upon the still air, the evening gun is fired, whose loud report reverberates among the hills, each one sending bark its echo; at the same moment the flag is run down from its stall', and the ca dets march swsv to the barracks Immediately afier the parade, supper. \t thirty minutes niter supper there is a call to quarters, and the time from that till half past nine is use<l in study. A preparatory signal is then given, at " Taps,'' at 10 P. V., lights are extinguished ; each cadet is upon his mnt'rass, and from that time till morning no sound is heard about tho barracks, save the slow and solemn tiea.l of the guard, as he paces along the terrace If this is " play," heaven preserve us from labor And when it is taken into consideration, that this is continued during four years, every one-must seethe excessive amount ot labor required. At tho same time the legulations and discipline of the academy, and the course of study, a>o very rigid und complete. 1 shall give you a specimen of these tomorrow. Kxamina tions will probably close this week; when I understand the cadets intend naving a ball, nnd merry making. J he hotel is kept constantly filled with peoplo, coming going. Among the arrivals yesterday were those of Hon. Uarrett Davis and lady, of Kentucky, and Es-Oo vernor Branch, of Floiida, Secretary of the Navy under Oeneral Jackson. A great many people come here and s|>end the day, and all are highly pleased with the insti tution The prejudices entertained by many who come, aro destroyed, as those of any candid man must be, by a Tisit to the institution Sasatooa Sraiwos, June, 1844.
