Matamoras, Mexico, June 28, The newspaper ) undoubtedly a priceless blessing in any country, but among our people it is the very staff of inti Uectual tif?. Y<?t, so voracious is the popular appetite, that little attention is ^iven to the bare quality of the material* of which the bread is sometimes composed This fact kas been strikingly illustrated in some recent accounts of movements and doings in the little army of occupation. So exaggerated have been many ol the statements?so contrary to truth and a reasonable probability, the narrative of events thut have occurred, aud of others which never happened, as to fill the regular officer with mortification and reizret. and draw from him that mournfully disparaging soliloquy, "How this world is given to lying! The papers from the I'nited State* are now arriving, freighted with varied reports of sieges, and marches, and battles on the frontier of Mexico; and it would appear that almost every camp follower, whatever his eapaoity or aiean's of information, has'believed that his own circumstantial report of transactions here, was a sacred debt he owed to his country and the world. Professional knowledge was not deemed necessary. He had a call, and with a presumption similar to that with which the ^soramus, under the plea of this canting expression, entcrB upon the sublime mysteries of theology, our historian minutely des< 4 bes the progress of battles he did'not soe, and parses a veidict upeu military operations he does not understand. And here let me state, for the credit of army literature a?d veracity, that a majority of the extravagant, and oitentimes ptiwile accounts, purporting to come from an officer in camp, proceed from no one commissioned in, or in any way bt longing to the public servioe. The writer of t .is was at Point Isabel early in May, terms iiiwnicn xue vonuuci ana cnvravici ui wm. Titylor in spoken of in Matainoras. Hi# remaining in camp and sharing ail the hardships of the soldier*, during the extremely disagreeable weather which we have lately had, affords, they say, a favorable contrast to what would have been the conduct of a Mexican General, under similar ciieumstances. The latter would have occupied the best hoaM in town, even if he had to 1'uioe the inmates into the streets. Capt. Walker, of the Texas Runner*, has revived his commission as captain in the United ''ales army, of company C oJ the regiment of mounted riflemen. He is instructed, wa are in|?rmed, to repor'. by letu-r and not in jxrFOn, as pis service? m ?y be needed here, to Maj. llur"rde, Newport, Ky , and to recruit his eompany ;ts speedily as possible, so as not to inter lure with moif active dunes. The commissioners sent from this plaoe, by the permission of Gen. Taylor to the commander of the Mexican forces, to obtain money lor the support of the sick and wounded Mexican soldieis, returned yesterday Willi $ 1200. The poor maim ed wretohes, whan they are turned out of the hospital, will faiihe permission of the government to ?beg.

The commandant of the department ol Puebla.sayt, in an othcial dispatch to the minister of war and marine, that the soldiers under his when Captain Walker returned from his daring *nd sueoe-sful ex|?edition to the fort opposite Matamorns. The clear report from its commander of the first two days' operations and resulH was well known throughout the army, and to every citizen at the Point. Judge of our surprise to benold, a few weeks afterwards, the story that four Impounders had, in thirty minutes, totally destroyed the well-built city of Matnmoras, and killed seven hundred of its defenders! Now, who told this improbable falsehood! Certainly no one accurately acquainted with the effect ol shot, or the usually adhesive character of brick and mortar. Yet this marvellous story went to the United States, and served the good purpose of a text for patriotic addresses to the thousands assembled in your park, and Rave the subject to a great national drama, written, rehearsed and acted wuhin five hours after it reached Philadelphia. But with all its utility, it wanted the becoming ornament of a degree of truth. Richly did we merit that bitter sarcasm of the Canadian editor, who, on the report that the American army was about to take Matamoras, quietly suggested that Matainoras had no exist ence for several days. And the official ed tor may herein Hud some excuse for his incredulity when the rumor of our battles first reached Washington. To quarrel with the charity believing us capable of so great and marvellous things, may appear ungrateful; but the mortification, on account of the Mtinchausens returning to us by every mail, is so great, that I have felt it my dit'y to dwi 11 upon the evil at some length, ana to caution the public that all tho " latest intelligence" from the seat of war is not worthy of implicit belief. We deem the unadorned truth sufficiently extraordinary for the most wonder-loving reader, and ack no higher pra se for the army ol occupation than this truth simply stated. With these viows, and to correct, in some meaSlin*. Sill fVtl fr^n11t! v 114 nrouiil tr\ th#? niltilif* interest as it i-> annoying to individuals, I would i-k a nlace in the col'nuns of the universally read Htra/d, wherein to record pas.-ins{ events on the rt.10 Grande and with the invading army, as they ire aeon to the writer. Shoul I this pnvilei<e be iccoraed, it is hoped that numerous eriors may be corrected, and more avoidt-d in future. It cannot be doubted 'hat the operations of Gem. Taylor, in his brief and brilliant campaign, are to >ccupy a conspicuous place on the page of Atneri ;an history, an they have elevated him among die tirst of Amer can heroes. Two dnys stand in oold prominence, but it must not be supposed i hat all of high importance was enacted on the 8th and 9. h of May. War would be indeed a holiday, tiad we but to meet and engage the enemy at a given time, and, after sharing tn the excitement of battle, and perhaps the glory of triumph, behold tlio work accomplished, and he permitted to lelurn quickly at home. But every day shows not .t battle-field. It is in patient endurance, in learning "to labor and to wait," that the soldier is moM severely tried. Incidents apparently the slightest, may have the most important buaring upon tine grand result, and hence the history of any day from the march of the army from Corpus Ghristi 10 the occupation of this Mexican city, may not be unworthy of record. In this spirit, I propose 10 write currente calamo of transactions in and near the army of occupation, Without regarding strictly ihe order of time, as often and with as much in nuteness as a soldier's duties in the field may ad'ord Inm leisure and opportunity. X. V. Z. Movements of thn Army of Occupation? Affairs In Mutmnarao [Frsai the Matamoras Reveille, June SO ] A portion of Capt. M'Cullough's company, a few days since, while en a scouting expedition, near Keynoso, captured two officers of the Mexican army. They are reported to have had despatches from Canales to the Mexican army near Monterey. The nature of the communications, as a matter of course, have not transpired. We are gratified, us un American citizen, at the i_ W YO iW YORK, WEDNESDA1 f i command, instead of being disheartened by the news of the battles of the 8ih and 9th ult., desire most eagerly to be let against the horde of barbarians and robbers, the North Americans. The yellow fever is prevailing to coMtderable extent in Vera Cruz. We publish the decree of Gen Parodes.ifclositt^: the port of Mazatlan on the Pac lie. The decree 1 to take i*ifeet against all Vrasels from the ports in the Pacific in one month alter its publiitat.on ; ! agamst vessels from South America, in four months; ugaiust vessels from Europe, in fix 1 mouths. . . The Mexican Government have issued a decree, I dated June 5th, declaring all goods shipped into . .uriivu \jy mc way ui mauiiuurn^, yrcviuuv lUlU ! since its occupation by the American army, csn| tiscated and liable to seizure. There in a provi-< , ?ion for the restoration of those on which tne duties hava been paid. This is decidedly rioii. If we are net entitled to the free navigation of the Rio Grande, Bravo, Del Norte, we don't know who are. The policy which the Mexican Government has pursued toward* the Departments of Tamaulipa*, New Leon, Chihuahua, and Coahutlm, has been of such a character as to give good cause for dissatisfaction. Whilst the departments of Vera Cruz, Mexico, and a tew other* have been tupported and sustained by the Government, not a pittance has fallen to these States. Arms necessary to the defence of their wives and ehildren against the incursions of the savages, tiave been denied the inhabitants; their petitions Imvo been slighted, and no notice has been tak6o of them whatever, except to tax and oppress them. Whilst some of ihe Departments have been treated as legitimate sons, these States, in asking for their rights only, have been spurned as bastards by the Government. These things have been borne ?o long that forbearance ceases to be a virtue. The paitialiiy and injustice of this aourse is so obvious, that a people who would enditra it longer are fit only to be slaves. [From tb* Matamorai Republic, Jan* J7 1 The steamer Aid returned to this place Tuesday evening from Reynoso, having met with little difficulty on the passa-e, and ve li'yitig the saying of Sam Patch, that " some things can be dons as well as others." When she pa*so?t the volunteer encampment, the river bank was lined with men, who simultaneously gave her a welcome return, by freely cheering ner. " All'* well," she reports ixora auove. [From the Matamorai Republic, June 93 ] General Taylor's head quarters and staff occupy the most beautiful position imaginable. The Rio Granue, after tom-hing Mata moras at its western extroinity, runsTround and forms a beautiful curve, resembling the quarter of a circl", and approaches within live hundred yards of the principal square, the streets running straight down to the river, as they do at the western extreme, where it approaches very near the buildings. In this circle, about thirty paces from the bank, on the Matamoras side, under a lone tree, stands the tent of the hero of many batiles. The tents of his statf are around at ^convenient distances, the whole forming a pleasing combination at the extreme north went of the encampment. As you proceed d iwn the river you com* to the home of Col. Twiggs, and adjoining it, Brad's artillery, and in succvssion the fifth regiment of infantry, comivauded bv Major ftaniford. To the souili of, and in parallel line with the rivor. about two hundred yards distant, are the 3d and 4th regiments of imantry, commanded by Col. Garland. Pursuing the river bank down, you coine to the ferry which crosses the river a little above Fort Brown, and is the principal thoroughlare between the two divisions of the army. Below this ferry, at the distance of four hundred yards, you come to the dying artillery of C/apt. Duncan, and the 8th regiment of intaniry, commanded by Gen. Worth. We will now go over to Fort Brown, defended by three companies of artillery, under the command of Capt. Lowd. Just above Fort Brown, and immediately upon th? bank of the rivnr, is posieu me on regiment "i ini.mtry, commanded i>y Capt. Miles. Ttieu, still as ywu proceed up the river, you como lo the encampment"of the Louianna and Alabama volunteers, commanded by Gen. Smith, and on the border the volnnteers of East and West Texas. Orders to " hold themselves in readiness" have been given to several of the regular, as well as volunteer commands stationed around Matamorns, and there is no doubt Uncle ZaeW has in view some work lor the boys to perform. We discover that the Mexicans are much elated at information received that all the wealth and property ofthechurcu has been tendered to the government to support the war. We learn thiit Lieut. Col. Antonio Tenorio, of the 12 h regiment Mexican infantry, has arrived in Lanares with four bundled men and three pieces of cannon from Tampico. Col. Tenoria was formerly a citizen of tins place, and his family now live in ihecity. We also learn that every Department in the Kepublic has made a voluntary tender ol its quota of inen and money for the effective prosecution ol the war, and, lrom our own observation, we discover that the Mexicans feel a greater anxiety about the receipt ot a mail than we do ourselves, wishing to ascertain how affairs stand between John Bull and Brother Jonathan, as it anticipating relief from a difference between these worthies. [From tha MtUmoru Republic, Jun* 00 ] Another stenmpr. the A uf nrrivwf nt nnr 1?n,l ing on Wednesday night last, and left on Thursday evening for Keynoso, with provisions, tc., for the troops stationed there, ('apt. Lynde of the 5th infantry, with a detachment of men, went as an escort to the boat, and topographical engineers Mead and Wood, accompanied her for the purpose of making a survey and map of the river. This is the first steamer that has ever attempted the ascent of the river above this place, and will be viewed as a curiosity by the natives, most of whom have no conception of what a steamboat is. She will no doubt prove of infinite " aid" to the service. Matamoras is becoming daily more Americanized, and the old citizens are showing milch desire to assimilate with the new comers. The greater part of that shyness and luliewarmness which was wont to characterize them, has given place to familiarity and amity, and they talk together, eat together, and lutigh together, as though the line of enmity nad been completely erased or covered over with the link of friendship that seems hourly cementing. This is as it should be, and its good effects are being lelt over the placc. The cambined efforts of the two hare given an impetus to business, and bnried in oblivion the dull lethargy which prevailed when the one ]*arty was opposed to the other. Business men have arrived here from New Orleans, Texas and other places, and llnd a good market for all they have to srll. Mechanics, too, are found busily plying their implements of trade, and every thing gives token ol better times ahead. What the grand tirude may be to this "joint occupancy." (civilly speaking) we know not; but this we do know? the Rnuntenanoes of all we meet seem to express I 'spose it's all right!" Operations about head-quarters, portend a speedy movement of troops. . Carrabajal, with about two hundred men, we have fr?m undoubted authority, was in San Fernnni4n foil r Amwm a art imTina unnn nil fha linriCN lie oonld find, and keeping a strict watch over movements in Matamoras, overhauling all on tlteir way to or coming from this p'aee. San Fernando ia distant nbrtut ninety mile* from here, and the imputation are hourly looking for the march of the Americans upon the town. The archive* niid all the public property has been carried off or concealed. Letters received by citizens hero convey to them the positive a<-urunce that the Mexican army will r"'tirn within two montlif. Gues* they'll think better of it. General Taylor is beginn nir to like the place exceid ng well, and we calculate the on'y way to prevail on him to leave i?, I will be to buy him off with a good round sum of MfX'can gold. f Hy later ndviocs we have learned, that Carrabai jal had succe? ded in collecting auom MM) horses, and had passed within fify miles of this place, on his wav toward* Camargo.

He was i r dm# out hitntuiu for newspapers. Ttie old gen- I ! tleman haidly ever is wen attended by any ol his j officer* or men in his ride?, but goes*'poking about," ns I heard a volunteer remark the other J day, " just like other folks." Gen. Smith wits to begin to remove his camp to-day somo 12 or 16 j miles up the river on the Mexican side. The 1 I General looks remarkably well and is in fine spi- r : rits. The musquitees showed themselves in num , l>ers lor the nrat tints at head-quarters last eve| ning. The volunteer camp was perfectly shrouJed by sinoko, raised by the men to keep off the in- I truder*. A rumor obtains in camp that a portion of the Louisiana volunteers are soon to tie disbanded, and, though they h-ve been assured that such will not pronably be the case, they are quite uneasy about it?u few because they want to go home, onJ fear the rumor is not welrfotuided, but most of them beoause th?y desire to stay and " s?*e the thing out." "When can we move! Can we ever get a fight out of them 1" are the questions constantly put to persons coming from Gen. Taylor's quarters. That a Urge portion of ihe army will soon move towards Monterey can no loneer be doubted, as bo?u enough ot light draught have arrived to warrant Gen. 1 aylor in taking possession of the country between the mouth of the river and that plane. The road we came over last nieht?I mean the wagon road between Point Isabel and Matamoras?is still impassab e for loaded wagons, a>>d it is a wonder to me how a light wngon can be dragged over it. From the river to the Palo Alto, some nine miles, there is not, aliogeiher, half a mile ot hurd rood. The mud is generally afoot deep?and in some places two or three feet deep, and there is at least lour miles of water, in many piiicua nanny lurunuic i*jr nurses. * 110 ^t iincman who accompanied m? down captured 11 gar- , ft?h on " six mile piairie," between th>> battle ! fields the other day, nearly three feet lout;. 1 passed over the name place four or five times when it was perfectly dry, with no appearance of having ever been overllowt-d At the Resaca de la Palm* where, as you will observe on the map, a road passes between the ponds, there is now but one pond, and that is deep enough anywhere for a respectable sized steamboat to puss through it. The Palo Alto battle field is two-thirds covered , with water. A Mexican prisoner of war, Lieut. Ruix, whose : arrest I mentioned sometime ago, will go out to ; New Orleans in the Alabama. You will recollect : that he was caught in Matamoras in the act ot j trying to gather recruits from among the citizens, i and the convalescent of the wounded soldiery. A Mexican also goes out in chains accused of being oneof the murderers of the Rogers family. I am not lawyer enough to know exactly how Ue j will be tried, or before wh'it tribunal, but he has an ugly phiz to bring before a jury. Mr?. Pnge, | wile of the Capt. Page, who behaved scyoillnnily in the recent battles, and was so tmadlnlly wounded, will go out in the Alabnma. She came to this place to meet her hu hand, but found, on i her arrival, that the captain had ulreadv sailed for i New Orleans, expecting to meet her husband : there.

Cunningham, left this city on Saturday evening, on the steamship New York, for the seat of war. Previous to their leaving, some three or four of them became engaged in a rather serious artair. Two negro men wore sitting on the wharf fishing. The volunteers, a?ter abusing them, throwing melons at and otherwise til-treating them, knocked them into the j river. One ol them fortunately caught by the wharf, and was drawn in ; the other, n very valuable and trustworthy servant, named Berry, l>elonging to Mr. I. L. Jones, of this citv, was drowned. The alarm was given, and the Mayor and Marshal, accompanied by others of the police, repaired to the wharf and demanded the offend era. Capt Cunningham drew his sword, ordered his men fo defend themselves, and refused to de liver up the men chareed with the offence ? I Capt. Phillip*, of the Nfcw York, assured the i Mayor that he would not allow the boat to leave unless with his consent. The captains of the companies, upon consultation with the quartermaster (Gen Toulinin), consented to vield up two of the supposed offenders, but not nihil they ascertained, l>y inquiry among their men, that ihey would be acquitted. The Mayor canned the companies to be formed and the rolls call< d, when it was found that there was one man missing, fo/ whom search was made. After some trouble he was discovered in the hold of the bout, covered up with blankets, knapsacks, muskets. &c. He and two others were arraigned before ; the Mayor, who was assisied by F. G. Kimball, j Esq. The names of the nn-n wore John A Wil- i liainson, of the Talladega R:ingers,Samuel Row- ! an, and Calloway Morton, of the Jackson county 1 volunteers. The most essential tes:imony given j was that of Mr. Curran, who testified that ne <aw Callowuy of the prisoners, strike Berry on the bark, and knock lum into the river, without any insolence from or provocation on the I part of Berry.

Iajuik Republican, J\Uy 7. Aubany, July 13, 1846. , The State Convention?Ttu Pardoning Power. Very little is being dono in this city indepen- ( dently of the convention proceedings. The weather is unmercifully warm, and all who are so fortunate as to be atile, have set off for tlv country The business of the convention must necessarily partake of great interest 1 am disposed to belie v? that its vast importance is hardly apprec ale i. I was present in the Assembly Chamber a moment to-day. The question whether the lodgment of tho pardoning power in the Executive of this Htate, is not detrimental to the interests of the citizens, was under discussion. 1< annears. indeed, that this prerogative has always been a matter of innuietiid* to the Executive, and that he would gladly dispense with it. It i? beyond the power of the Executive to even notice or reply to the many application* for pardon*. This is c?l'ed a dereliction by the petitioners, nnd where Executive interposition i* often granted on behalf of poor convicts, he is of ten condemned and execrated by ferocious partizans, for a too free and facile exercise of this great prerogative. It has even been alleged that the Executive has not always been altogether free from puhticnl intluenccs in granting pardons. Thus it will be seen that the situation of the Executive is delicate and often unpleasant. No i? ore weighty reason ran be adduced in (avor o( the proposition to withdraw the paidoimig power friam the Governor, than the fiict, that thepower constantly forces brilliant opportunities lbi personal benefit, and political emolument in hikeeping, without any sort of risk wl conviction A million channels for the exercise of this tremendous influence are seen, and the most j-plendid intellects joined to indexible integrity, cnnno> always hope to resist advantages for the safe and covert transaction of schtmes of diabolical villa ny. Therefore this option should not be vested in any citizen. It is nlways unsafe. A herco opposition to the proposal hns been displayed in the convention. 1 think, however, that the proposition will be carried Nevertheless h duty presents itself to the press of this State. Let it speak on which side it may, it should be heard. Constitutional Convention, Monday, July 13 ?On motion of Mr. Chatlield, the hour of meeting in the morning wa? changed from ten to nine o'clock.

Mr. M. being a lirle deaf, probably did not hear the locomotive; his wile told him to stop, and gavo the remp a check; the horse stopped for a moment, and frightened at the noise, staited again, which brought his fore feet on the track just as the locomotive came up The hor?e was first caught by the hoof, which was torn oil, kno< k?d round against the loco , mo'ive, at the same tune upsetting the wagon, I and throwing Mr. and Mr*.
