June 14th, 1818.?Several Spaniard* (among them two Armijos) reached here last week from New Vork, with a large lot of goods for N?w Mexico. They are very much discouraged, and are anxious to aeli out their'entire stock of goods, offering to take l>r*t cost for them. They have now gone up to Kort Leavenworth, to see Colonel Kearney, who sont down an express to them, that he wished to seo thorn, and have an interview. It i? thought the Colonel intended to Uy the wHole plan of the expedition before them, and to offer the liovornor of New Mexico,through them, such terras a* may secure the country without ctriking a blow. These Mexicans are men of influence and great wealth, and if Colonel K. can >uccced iu getting on the right side of them, he may effect a great deal. A rumor is afloat that an exuress has iust reached heie. to tUe Mexicam in this place, from Santa Ke, who reports that Governor Armijo i? at Moro, about 90 milos thii aide of Santa Ke, with about 4000 men, ready to engage with any force that the United States mar send against tbem. He was still receiving additions to hi! army ever* day . Some are disputed to credit this report, but others doubt it. The Santa Fe traders are still going out. Colonel 8. C. Owena left last week. Some of the more timid, who had purchased goods for that trade, have backed out until tne clouds of war shall have passed away. They have stored their goods and await the result.

A company of rough, bold, hardy volunteer*, came to Fort Leavenworth to engage in the conquest of Santa Fe, and all exceedingly eager lor action. 1'Vey were drawn up in a line to undergo inspection, and each man and horte wan carefully examined, and rigidly scrutini/od, before he wa* pasted. A large loose-nung man, abo^ six feet high, was readily passed. The next man in the lino was a very small, rough, red-headed, freckle-farcd stump of a man, mounted on a small, hardy pony. Col. Kearney considered thfc man entitaly too small for the service, but to save his feelings, raised no objection to his person, but objected to bi* horse a* too small. The man Mid it wa* the besl horse in the company, and capable of doing more hard service than any horse on the ground ; but as it was objected to, he hnd another horse present, and would briog it in ; and in a few momenta he appeared, mounted on a large, fine looking hone. Col. K. tl.en informed him that he himself was also under size, and could not be received on that account. At Ihin, the blood flew into the face, and the tears started in the eye* of the red handed man ; and with much earnestness he exclaimed, " Did you not pass thi* msn on my right 7" Col. K. replied that he did. " Tr.en,"' said red-head, " big as he is, tie my right hand behind my back, and I can lick him in 1pm than a miuit." Col K. was *o well pleased with the caraeatness and spirit displayed by him. that he told him he would overlook his size, and receive him into the service, relying on tho size of his soul to make up tor the deficiency ol bodily size ; and also added, that be considered Ms small horse a* the hardieit animal of the two, and therefore his favorite pony might also be mustered into tbe service. Th? red-headed volunteer was overcome with joy, as he and hi* pony wee* regularly mustered in. Naval.

Klkctro Phonetic Tkmmiaimi.?We were nfforik-ri tlie gratification on 3nturdny ln*t. of wituesiing the operation of a Phonetic Telegraph, the invention of Or Hume, one of the Troleaaor* of the Citadel Academy, which, we think, will attract the attention of scientific men. It ha* been stated that a Russian invention, hearing the same title, baa betn aubmitted to the Aeademy of St I'etersbuig. and it ia said alio, that aom* gentleman In Cincinnati bua also invented a similar Telegraphic machine, but hewever this may be, and whatever may be the principle* of the?e inventions, It la certain that L>r Hume'* model originated exclunvely with himself, and theieiore he h entitled to whatever credit or advantage that may accrue from ita u?e should it be ftattd to amwer any purpose more effectively than that of Mr. Morse The Russian telegraph is alleged to be capable of exmessinir ten different sound* bv ten wires. The ("buries- I ton teiegtnuh <>ip.eases two sounds by two wIran, mid mi) be inude to express the twenty-six soun li computing the alphabet, bv twenty-seven wires, but tliis is unnece?ry, for, if a sufficient numler of distinct sounds can b? expressed by (ewer wires to make an intelligiblo language, tlse object is accomplished. The difference between these telegraphs and Morse's, consists in the substitution of sounds for marks, and greater simplicity. It is distinctly audible in a large room; and any, who will take the trouble to loam its language, may hear the news as last as it is told at the other end. To discuss the comparative merits of the phonetic and hieroglyphic telegraphs, would be to discuss the comparative merits and uses of spoken and written language. The world has determined that both are indispensible. Kor ephemeral purposes speech is more convenient, for durability and tor the benefit of posterity we should prefer minting. It is unnecessary to enter into the detail* of its construction or mode of operation. It was designed and executed for class Illustration, and probably would never have been brought before the public if some importance had not beon attached to the ltu?sian invention. Our observation of the operation of the I'honetic Telegraph, brings us to the conclusion that it will be found eminently useful in the communication of Information, aa there may be many reporters engaged at the same time In transcribing, whereas but one can be employed where the letters are marked. This of itself will be a great saving of time, besides, from the explanations given us by nr 11iimn it is clear that tlin ainhabet nan lie so much limplified, at to eventually make 'it npproarh abort-hand writing, and therefor* mt? time in communicating long document*.?Chartrtlnn Cou itr, J'me IA.

Was mi mm 11, (nno 16, Whig Nomination for 184S?Mclsan and Man. gum. I know you love tin occasional dish of politics. The first item of intelligence is, that Gen. Scott litis taken un insuperable aversion to " soup he uL'ill lit* fritirwl in liffl** Olivor'a pniulitinn bogging for *' more." The general has many noble mid gallant qualities, anil no living man lms rendered higher services to his country. In his profession he ranks foremast; but, nature never designed him for anything else than a soldier. Like all men, lie has his weak spot and his am j bition. The infirmity with which he has been most 1 utiheted, is the de-sire to become President of the United Suites. This one idea has tilled the meu- ; sure of all his thoughts, until he at last concluded no man possessed the requisite qualifications but ' himself. As a statesman and an executive oflieer, he convinced himself he had no superior; and in the judgment of the world these happened to be the very points in which his public character was most deficient. He took up the impression that he lost the nomination at Ilnrrisburg in 183!), when he was used to defeat Mr. Clay, because he was not early enough in the field; aiul he set himself to work, therefore, to put the ball in motion early last winter. At tho last session of Congress, after the Presidential canvass, the inclination of the main body of tho whig party was towards John McLean, not only for his own merits and popularity, but on account of the devotion and zeal which he had manifested on the behalf of Mr. Clay, from the be ginning xo mo ?na 01 tne tast canvass?wnercas ScrKt was cool, if not distant. Scott's friends knew the existence of this state of a (fairs, and tliey determined to counteract it during this session. Accordingly letters were written in nil directions from tins city, purporting tliat Scott had the prelerence of a majority of Uio whiga in Congress?that at ccrtnin dinners of distinguis .ed Senators he was toasted and treated as the nominee, and various other expedients were resorted to. This was a system of humbug? ihese dinners were given by Senators known liere in the political circles to be opposed to his nomination; and the wings, in no manner, shape, or form,ever authorized or sanctioned the statements which were circulated. Indeed, many of them publicly disclaimed the sentiments wh ch had been attributed ;o theiu. Various officers of the army, the most conspicuous of whom was Ma jor Davies, travelled through different States, representing that he was tixed upon as the candidate. Now, tlie only public men here who were commuted to his support, and who took the man tyeinent of his nomination, were J. >1. Cltytou, Archer, liarrow, Pearce, and one or t o others in the Senate. Washington Hunt, and about tilteen or twenty members of the House, composed the junto, who uudcriook to embody in their | ersons tho opinion ot ihe whig party. In conuecuo i with this proceeding, Col. Webb in ?de his appearance here early in the winter, and his project was to deprive Scott ol hi- s *uili ern birth, education and .-ympatliies, by rutin iij him as a northern candidate, because he owned u residence in New Jersey. Then came Charle.?> King and James Monroe, who took up their quar ters at the General * house, in order to advance tho object more effectually. They composed the great Kitchen Cabinet?the power behind the throne. Well, alter counselling in " high quarters," (remember, not the "highest quarter,") they went to Richmond and elsewhere to pull the wires, liy day and by night tliey beset whig members, and everybody else that would listen. Good dinners were given, and good wine drunk, until they did succeed in making some impression in his i'uvor. This ? as the condition of things when General Scott took his memorable " hastv plate of soup." Tbe country papers, believing that he had really some strength at Washington, copied tho articles referred to, and proclaimed their readiness to fall in with the nomination, if such was the decision. The game was really working well, until he spilt the " soup." His best friends have deserted, and are Hying on all s.des. Even John M. llotts, one of his most ardent supporters, says in the public | streets here, " No man ever so effectually killed himself otf with a single letter as Scott." To und ! all hi? troubles, Christopher Hughes, our late Charge at the Hague, has christened him Marshal Tureen, (Turenne.) That was the unkiiulest cut of all. Scott being thus dropped, abandoned, laid aside and shelved, within a few days past the whig*have been turning their attention to a nomination. The northern and western men have avowed their preference for John McLean, and the most important politicians from Pennsylvania have given in their support. A few of the eastern members were tor bringing Mr. Webster forward; but, finding they could make no headway lor the next canvass, and being promised future assistance, they have joined in with 01 which wij ||?>w The riait of the ?;fty Ouarda lo Troy, Inat wrrk, ocraaioned much inter?**, *epeciaily among tha fairer por- , tiom of creation, lo whom* eueceptible hearta a rat) coat j or a gilt epaulet aeema to l)? ar. ionlianti table paaaport Koun o'clock, P.

Mangum for Vice President. This is,perhaps,the most judicious selection the Whigs could make. McLean is a pure, honest, and an able statesman In every oflicml position which he has ever held, he has impressed the influence of integrity and capacity, and among public men he has been singularly distinguished for his justice and uprightness. There is scarcely a man in the linitea States, who possesses the same elements of personal popularity. On the other hand, Mr. Mangum has been long known to the country as one of the most eloquent, liberal, and honest of our statesmen ; contracted by no narrow or selfish views, asking 110 oifice, and avoiding all favor, h? has discharged his duty fearlessly, and earned a most enviable reputation. ! Taken altogether, these two names would be irresistible, and so far ns the influence of the pro; sent Congress is concerned, the public may rest assured, they will be inscribed upon the Whig [ l anner in 1848.
