WILSON/of Ulan Core, to take chsrge of the Gleu Cove Pavilion, at the Steamboat Lauding. Tor the ensuing season, commencing this us v. i)y this arrangement, his own sctire attention to the want.' of his guests, and tbr supervision of Mr. Wilsou, afford, It is hoped, an assurance that the establishment w ill bs put ou ss good a footing as regards the eoufort and convenience of those who may fivor him with their puronage, as any water ing place in the vieinity of New York Since the last sum mer, the grounds attached to the Pavilion have heeu n really improved aud ornamented, and the bou?w ? .Undi d 40 feet in front by its eutire depth, being uow 100 in front facing the harbor, with a colonnade and pinxxa two siori?qfti height, 100 leet in length and 13 feet in depth. A uew dining room has been built since last sesson 40 feet bv 38. Private parlors fitted up, and additional public parlors added to tlie establish meat. The whole has been newly furnished, and is uow in complete order, affording, it is believed, as attractive a sum mer residence as cau be found in the State or cnuutry. The sreambott Croton. one of the finest and boats out of New York, is now running permwieiitly on this route, thus ensuring ililly t rapid communication with the eitv. It is believed that visiters totnis establishment, will find in the comforts of a well supplied and well ordered table, and ueat and commodious sleeping aivrtineujs, (in addition to the attractions of salr water bathing, so abundantly afforded by the admirable beach of Olen Cove Harbor),suHicient induce ments for a summer residence at this portion of Long IsUud Sound.

SPECIAL COKUSPONSENCE OF THE X. Y. ItKRAl.D. Matamobas, Mexico, May 40, 1846. In my last letter, 1 gave you the particular* of the bat tle* of the 9tl> and 9th, and of the disorganixation of the Mexican army. On the following Sunday, Arista tent to <?cneral Taylor to inquire upon what terms he wished tbe surrender of the city, &3. The General replied that the army and an unconditional surrender of all public I property, would be the oaly terms upon which he would treat Arista was to hure sent a reply to Qoa. Taylor at 3 o'clock, P. M , and as he did not lend, the troops made preparations to invest the etfy, and arrangements i were made that night Cot crossing tho river. We cross- i e?l the next morning, uuJ idund that the Moxican army had left, and that the (i#n*ral's message wti but a rust to gain time. We bow onoamped on the pluiu in front of the city. I au very much disappointed in the ap> , pearance of the place. On a near approach, it presents a : dilapidated, worn out appearance, whereas, at a distance, I it had a very pleasing u*o*ot I have not seen a pretty I girl in the city Mojt of them have left with their amy, I as the girls always l'oll?w the soldier*. We shall pro . bobly fortify this place, sacure both banks of the river up to this point-, and muke Matamoras the base of our operation*^!'we prosecute the war of invasion into the interior. *1 have visited the hospitals in the city, and wit. nested the most pitiable sight* imaginable 'There are Ave or six hundred men latt in the most destitute situa tion. These wounded, of course, will fall to our share, and wo shall have to support and take care of thomV Largo numbers of volunteers are collecting on this fron tier. and if we havo to penetrate into tho interior, we shall probably start with a large force. In deed, it would be imprudent to go with a small one. We have been long enough here with a ! handful of men, and have been harraiised long enough with night alarms, marching, and counter-marching. I should much prefer to hove one good tight, if they with to try ititfain, than to have this state of things exist much longer. I am fearful that Captain Paige cannot survive the shocking wound he received on the 8th. The last accounts from Point Isabel, stated that he could not live, and was praying for death. Yours, Ike. The New Orleans Delia, of the 9th, contains quite an interesting letter, duted Point Isabel, May 30th. After alluding to the battle of the 8th, the writer says: ^The first care of .Gen. Taylor was to visit the wound ed, and sea that every comfort was supplied?the con stant and well directed energies of tho medical depart ment left but little for him te do; every one, whether offi cer or soldier, had been atlended with unwoarying care and watchfulness/\ The troops having pai taken ol their meal, the order wa* given to get the command under arms. Gen. Taylor here summoned a council of war, composed of the hoads of the different commands, in all thirteen, excluding tho commander in chief. The Geno ral, after returning thanks for their support and bravery i on the 8th, and withing to be advised as to what they thought best to be doue, called on each to give his opin ion. It was then ascertained that but four out of the thir teen were in favor of going ahead, the other officers composing the council voted, some to entrcnch where they were aud await the assistance of the volunteers, and others to retire at once to Point Isabel, but the Gene ral said, " I will-he at Fort Brown before night, if I live." ? He adds : " Those who voted for going ahead, an they watched tho countenance of the General, might have seen the smilo of approbation that lighted up the old man's honest face at the moment, thougli lie bowed with respect to the opinions of those who differed from him, and in saying engrave on the sacred banner of tho stars and stripes the names of Taylor, Mcintosh, Morris, Scott and Duncan, I mean no reflection on those who voted agniiiiit them?thoy were men tried in many a field be fore, and their dee'ds on that day proved them equal to the best. " Lieutenant Ridgely, who was entitled to a vote in the council wa* at the time in attendance on the lamented Ringgold, and therefore had no voice in the matter, but as he galloped up to the battery, on returning from hi* visit to the .Major, some one saiJ, ' Ridgely, were you at the council I' and ha replied, no, 1 aid not know that one had been called,but i hope old Zach will go ahead, and bring the matter to close quarters.' " A full account of the battle i* now given, an J ample justice is done to the brave men who participated in the ?truggle. Alluding to the charge of May, the writer say? : " The enemy again wavered. General Taylor order ed Captain May to charge their battery, and on he start ed, but on reaching the point of the road where he would have beeu discovered by the enemy, he was stop ped by Itidgely, who told him that the enemy had ju?t loaded all their pieces, and if he chnrged theu ho would Ihj swept away .' atop,' says Ridgely,' until I draw their fire,' when he deliberately fired each gun ; so* terrible wa* the ett'oct ol the grape, that the Mexican" poured their fire upon his piece, and then May charged like a bullet, drove ofl'their cannoniers, took La Vega prisoner, and retreated. Here Lieut. Inge, a noble, gallant soldier, charging at the head of tbe squadron, was killed and stripped. Lieut Hackctt, than whom there i* no better officer, had his horse shot under him, and was pitched head foremost into the pond, rose agaiu, covered with mud and water, and escaped. Tho squadron suffered very much. I am sure Charley May feels grateful to Ridgely for bis cool judgment acd timely advice. Had ue cnaiged on the batterj*, loaded with grape as it was, I do not believe he would have aaved a man." Incident*, die., of (he War.

The capture of Gen. Arista's personal effects embraced, among more important things, his silk bed and curtains, and his silver plate. Only think of a soldier carrying to camp silk curtains and silver table furniture ! Mien |op|>ery is disgusting, though Arista Is reputed an able officer and a brave man. but success in arms cau hard ly bo awarded to a commander who cares for luxarv while in actual service. Victory would scorn to perch on the banner of an enervated and luxurious leader j she requires her laurels to be won by hard service, by toil and privation. it hile the commander in-chief ef the Mexican forces was thus indulgent to himself, his men, it seems, were nearly starved to death, having no l'uod but coru and salt. One of the poor wounded Moxicans, while yet the issue of tbe battle was suspended, started up from the ijiasswhero hu fell, imploring an advancing party of our army to give him lood and drink.

[From the Bermuda Herald, May 31-1 It may here he observed, that wliilo the Texa* consti tution makes the slavo trade piracy, it permits the trafllc with the United States ; and attaches no penalty, even when it is carried on contrary to law elsowhere The value of Texas, as a market for the sale of slaves, and which its annexation secures to the United States, may be gathered from the fact, that in one year ? 1S37-3M ? fif teen thousand slaves were iinpoi te 1 from Africa ,nto that Province. As slavery is abolished in Mexico, it may be inferred that slaves will escape into that country. Accord ingly, it has been intimated to the Mexican government, more than once, that tha United State* will pursue fugitivo slaves into its territory and secure them, whether it shall be provided for by treuty or not.? How happens it that such a declaration has not been made t?

The daily academic studios and recitation# are of course suspended, and all the military exercises, with the exception of the usual guard, mounting in the morning, and the parado at eveuing. In the morning the Cailots are all required to attend church service, which is conducted in a neat little chapcl just in the rear of the barracks. The chapel contains a fine organ, with a choir composed of cadets, and is deoo rated with a beautiful painting by Robert W. Wier. The painting is in illustration of the motto w hieh is placed im mediately under it?" Righteousness exalteth a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people." Wo had yesterday morning a sermon from the text, " By faith the walls of Jericho fell down," which was listened to by tke cadets and a large number of visiters, withfnurked attention. ] The usual sen-ice is in the Kpisfopal form, although tho pulpit haa been oden to clergymen of other denomina- ' tion*. In the afternoon tho cadets are not required to ' attend churrh, but go orremain in the barracks, or walk j within the limits, as thoy please. The recruits, or " Plebes," as those cadets in their first : year are railed, are fast arriving, numbering now over | 6'l. Tbey are from all parts of the country?delicatc young men from the " first circles" ol our Northern and Houthern cities, and hardy, brown Hoosiers, from the wilds of tho Western prairies. Arrived here, all dis Unctions of rank aro levelled, and wealth or influence purchases no indulgence. All are required to pass through tho same course of instruction?all are subject ed to the samo rigid discipline. In an institut'ou whero between two and three hun dred young men are brought together, under however strict government, it would be strange if tricks were not played iinou greenhorns whon occasion ottered. The " Pieties' are, for two or three weeks after their arrival here, made thtf subjects of many good practical jokes, some of which are worth recording. Totally unaccus tomed, as they are, to military manners, and being very desirous, withal, to obey orders, they are not always en abled to discriminate between Ihoso which they snould obey, and those which they should not. The older ca dets, taking advantage of this, give them often all torts of ridiculous orders, which they, as good cadets, feel bound to follow out, to the letter. One night last week, or rather one morning about two o'clock, a compauy of cadets marched into the corner of the barracks appropriated to the " Plebes," and ordered half a do zen of them to rise. The poor fellows, taking them/or officers, immediately did to; and without having ti-no al lowed ihein to dress, they were marched wiih slow and solemn tread?tho cadets proceeding in front to a idace near the end of tho parade ground, where several large mortars aro plncea, used for the purpose of throwiug shells at a target in Kort Clinton. The covers were taken oil. mid three of the "plebes" ordered to get into the mortars. The bore ia just about largo enough to allow a person to squeeze in. So the poor fellows, thinking this ' was a part of their duty to accustom them to hard sleep ing, crawled into tho mortars as brstas they could.? Another was furnished with the heaviest musket that could be found about the bai racks, aud placed on guard. His duty was to pac# up and down, in order to watch the fellows in the mortar*. Another wasordeied to stand guard upon Uoo's point, n dock upon the river, which, at that hour of the night, we* disturbed only by the pad dlo of a boat or the leap of a sturgeon. Another was placed over in a dark path near Koiiut^o's monument; ' and all wero kept in the?o interesting |>ositions for about , two hours, when they were again marched to the bar racks, heartil> gla I o( having completed thoir first prac- 1 tical lesson in uight service.

Thete is rery little excitement here at present, the absence of the board, which is usually here, preventing those extra drill* and exhibitiona which are given for their benefit We have to amuse ourselves by visiting the many lieautiful pla. es near us. Among all the wild and romantic spot* for which the vi> cinlty of West Point is celebrated, there is probably no nat ural one which is so deserving of attention as old Cro' Nest. This mountati ia situated on the left bank of tho river, and ita base is about two miles from the hotel. I mounted yesterday to ita very summit, and shall never forget the glorious view art'orded Its height is, by mathe matical measurement, I,It?4 ft ; and the ascent, which is steep and ragged, is performed entirely on foot. The difficulties of ascending are rtrj greet, Sometime* it 1a ( nacessary to leap from rock to rock, or climb up the sid? of a hue* pile of stone with no foothold hat the moss, which ha* been gathering there for ages, and no support above but the branches of a withered tree Even in the ascent we find many grand and terrific spot*. Deep cavern*, formerly the abode et the wolf and -tfee fo* ; crags which orerhang a precipice of several hundred feet, and gnarled tne trunk* (tending over from them. Wo amused ourselves by lonseniug these tree* and large ?tone*, which we puthed off the crag, and beard thun dering at they cut down other tree* and struck against rock* hundred* of feet below us. After something over an hour's hard labor, we reachod the summit, and what a glorious light bioke upon u* ! It wa* a clear sunny afternoon, and we had therefor* an opportunity of having the view in it* full grandeur. To the north we could *ee the Hud*on for thirty milea, meandering like a little brook in a meadow, among tree-clad hill*, which tower cd alvore it, and plains dotted with town* and villages, the abodes of happina**, peace and plenty. The CauakiU Mountains rose like great blue cloud*, fifty miliM above ns, and back of tts, as fir as the eye could reap fa. were nothing but mountains, mountains, mountain*, piled up on each other. Ilulow u* the view extended for thirty miles, but wa.i uot so grand us that ud the river. Light clouds were Hying but a 1'vw feet onove u*. and our spirit* were buoved up by tho pure atmosphere (to aav nothing of a (bottle of fino old sherry which we took with us). What a place to contemplate ! But a few hundred veers ago this mountain wua the haunt of the savage.
