The Naval Board.?"Rumor says that the government, that is the President and Cabinet, have determined on a bombardment of the castle of Han Juan d'UUoa. and that the board of pout captains which assemble at Washington to-day, have been convened for a consultation, and preparatioa of a plan of attack on this cas tie " We clip the above from the Norfolk Bearnn. It is true aboard of captains of the navy is now in session in Washington; but the rumor which connects them with the castle of Soil Juan d'UUoa, or anything else connected with Mexican hostilities, i* pure Action. All the officers who have beeu summoned by the Secretary of the Navy are in attendance, to the number of 10, except Capt. Lavalette, who is supposed to be on the way from Memphis to join the board. We met them all today with the Secretary of the Navv, coming out the presidential mansion, where they had been on a visit of cereceresnony to the Chief Magistrate of the nation. They were in full uniform, aud, as a lady remarked to us, we had never ?een so many commodores assembled together before. It was delightful to see so many gallant men. and tako them by the hand, associated as their deeds are with the glory of their country men, of whom we had heard to much in former times, many whose names have filled the world with the honor of our navy?but most of whom it had never been our goo.< fortune to meet before. This is about the only city in the Union where we are likely to meet with such a striking and moral spectaclo. ? Pfathinglon Union, July 2'2 Incident*, Ac., of the War. Soon after General Taylor took possession of Matamoras, a Mexican merchant came in frnm the interior, with twenty thousand dollars in gold and silver. According to the old state of things, the morchant, to export it to the United States, which he wished to do, would have been obliged to pay two heavy dutios. Four per cent for bringing it into the country, aud six |>er cent for exnortinir out of the countrv. Not exactlv satisfied with the necessity of paying over so much money, to the hungry official*, who still lingered about Matamoras, he visited General Taylor'i tent, and itatcd his wish to ship to the United State), twenty thousand dollanin gold ami silver. '"Well," said the General, " ship it, very much pleased you are so disposed." " But," said the merchant nesitating, " the interior and exterior duties." " I know nothing boat such duties while I am in Matamoras," said General Taylor. The merchant bounced off, congratulating himself in Spanish, that the Americans had comc to the country, as he had made two thousand dollars in one day ky their so doing, upon a small shipment of specie. The ! rench Consul, in Matamoras, informed ut while we were in that city, that any amount of specie might be obtained in that place, for Louisiana paper. This hint may be of advantage to those who have to take the precioua metals to the army, for the purpose of paying off the troops. During tho first day of the bombardment of Kort Brown, there was an attempt made by our soldiers in the fort, to fire Matamoras with hot shot. The furnace* prepared to heat the shot, were imperfect, and fuel wm difficult to obtain, the consequence was, the shot were made very warm, but not sufficiently so to set any thing on fire. The good citizens of Matamoras, determinedto make the most of the balls we sent into their city, bad frequent scrambles for them, as they fell into their streets. When the hot shot were thrown, one fell into the centre of the Plaza, and off started a crowd to obtain the prixe, one individual more swift than his fellows, clasped the hot hall in his hands, burning the interior of them to crisp. After that, the Mexicans were more cautious, and usually waited for the balls to cool. This burnt handed gentleman, made a conspicuous pa. tient in one of the hospitals, declaring "he was a severe sufferer by the bombardment"? New Or learn Tropic.

After the battle of San Jacinto, President Santa Anna entered into a convention with the government of Texas, and amongst other provisions stipulated that the Mexican forces should abandon Texas, and retire beyond the Kio Grande. Santa Anna was then a prisoner, but (?en Kelisola, and all the commandants of .Vlexicsn detachments, ratifed the convention, and the Mexican army was unmolested on its retirement. On one occasion, General Gorestiia passed within two miles of the Texan army, with that portion which had garrisoned Bexar. Th two armies, the Mexicans being most numerous, camped near each other, and Gen. Gorestiza sent a request to Gen Rusk lo deliver up to him some bread which Gen Kelisola, or Urea, had left at Go liad, alleging that > > Santa Anna's convention he was entitled to it. Gen Husk complied. I mention this fact te show that rot only Santa Anna, a prisoner, but all the Ylexir.itn renerals recognised Uie convention referred to. | About the U?t of June, Col*. Karne* and Teal were lent to Matamora*, by t?en. Kuik, to arrange aorae matter* with the .\fexican commandant* On their return, they itated that Mexico refuted to ratify Santa Anna'a 1 convention At that time I had been ordered on an Indian expedition to the Upper Brazo*.

I send you herewith a few curiosities picked up. \n this department, together with an observation of tho temperature of this city, by the thermometer of Fahrenheit, a correct map of the department, (the most accurate yet taken,) and a few notes of my travels in Chiapas. 1 am about to travel through Central America, and some parts of South America. From this place I go to Comitan, San Bartolome, Palenque, and other places; from which I shall remit you, from time to time, letters containing such incidents as are worthy of note. To be^in? The department of Chiapas and its "eopie are very little kuown, even at this day. There is not even a correct map of it as yet printed. Ifs physical aspect varies us much as its climate. It remained for 279 years a province of <Guatamala, and in 18*21 it became one of the departments of Mexico. Before the conquest it was very populous. It coutained a number of large and splendid cities, as the ruins of Palenque and Ococingo still evidence; and its people were far more advanced in civilization and opulence than at the present day. The Northern and Southern portions of the department are warm and humid. Cotton and cocoa are cultivated with very little labo.'. The climato of the interior portions (the tiurra templado.) which are more elevated, if very salubrious. The thermometer in these portions is never known to ascend higher than 66, nor does it fall below 40 degrees. Every description of European grain and fruit grows hero in ubuadance- But the soil is not properly cultivated, and the treasures hidden in th? bosom of the earth wait for a more industrious population to develope them. The roads are in a primitive condition, many of them being impassable to horses and mulos. Kroan Ciudad Keai and Tuxtla to Tobasco, every thing is transported on the backs of Indians, who also carry the chairs in which travellers are obliged to ride, unless they prefer to pursue their journey on foot, as there is no other mode of conveyance. The usual rate charged by carriers is one real (13% cents,) per lesgue for four arrobas, (ISO lbs) The price of a chair is 25 cents per league. It it generally borne ny two or more inuianx There are nowhere carriage* or any description in uie throughout the department. The usual wage* of Indian laborer! are 124 cents per day. In 1611, Chiapas, including Soconusco, contained 13& towns and villager, with a population of 104.481. In IMS it contained 107 tow ns and villages, with a pop ilation of 16t,083, exclusive of Seconusco, covering an area of 18,700 square milos. Ciudad Ileal, the present capital, is 6,080 feet abova the level of the sea, occupying thu highest site in U>? department, with the exception of Tumbala. It is pleasantly situated, and contains 16 churches, some of them large and beautiful, 3 convents, viz : San Krnncisco, Han Domingo, and a convent of nuns, (the convent of Mercedesis, no longer in existence ) It contains, besides, a college, and lids a population of about 8,000. The houses are mostly of one story, with square courtsyards potin, inside, and are indifferently built of unburnt brick, and roofed with tiles. The streets are straight, and intersect at light angles. They are constructed of a sort of stone cement, and have a gutter in the middle The climate is cool and bracing, the thermometer scarcely ever rising above 65 degrees. In the rainy season a great quantity of water falls every day. The greater portion of the inhabitants are whites, .md they speak the Spanish language. The wheat bread of Ciudad Real is excellent, and is exported as far its Tobasco, sixty leagues distant. The largest and most populous place in the department is the village of Cliamula, about two leagues Northwest of Ciudad Real. The number of inhabitants has never been correctly ascertained, in consequence of a number of men being constantly absent at sea; but the ]>opulution is not less than 'JO,000 pure Indians, who speak the Zut/.il dialect. They are very industrious, and skilled in mechanical trades. They manufacture violins, guitars, harps, lie, at from 12>* cents to .">0 cents a piece. Two months ago, I purchased in the plaza of C indad Heal, two violins at liJi cents each, including stiings and bow. A usir of strong buckskin boots are sold at from 5 to 7 leals (623* to Hi,'a cents), B strong woourn tiuau m w , icih?,b -u/ui table at 60 centi, and everything in proportion. Kvery morning the plaza is covored with the Indian* from the village, who coine to sell their ware*. The head* and feet of the women are always naked, and they often carry a child on the top of their load. In the plaza, they sit on the hare ground, and are generally employed spinning cotton, using for the purpose a machine, the invention of which dates before the conquest. It it very primitive?it consists of a round |>in about a foot in lenarth, sharpeued at each end, one end being inserted in a ball of hard clay, or stone, to the depth ol an inch,?this end i? placed in a vessel, the shall of a calabash, lor instance. The pin is spun round with the fore linger of the ri<ht hand, and k#pt in a rotary motion?the cotton ii regulate I by the left. The pin receives the thread, and i* worked on until it is tilled Sum Bartolome, 10 leagues aou'.li of the capital, contains 12.000 souls-pure Indian*, with the exception of about 300o white* and mestizo*. The Indian* manufacture oap. They follow the cuatom of the ancient Huelluai, and speak the Zotiil language.

In the ccntre of the large and beautiful plaza waa a magnificent iouutain, at present dry and almoat in mini, the firat constructed in Chiapas. It wa* built by Kray Hodrigo de Leon in 1463. Near it atandi a ceira tree of vaat dimensions. There i? here a Dominican convent, tho church of which has a large bell, six and a half baras (yards) infcircumference. It is the oldest bell in Chiapas, and a great proportion o( the metal is gold. Its sound is heard at the distance of nine tr ies. lTic clapper, 74 pound* in weight, was taken out in 1834, by order ofthe Trior of the Convent, Kiay Petit, who caused it to be forged into machetas for the Indians. At one time Chiapa contained between 30,000 and 10,000 inhabitants. Now it contains but 4 000 Tonala, 5tt leagues southwest of the capital, and three leaguea from the Pacific ocean, contains 4,000 inhabitants, who are chiefly occupied in raising cattle, and cultivating ariel They speak the Spanish language only.
