To break the dull monotony of camp life we had anoher Indian alarm yesterday morning The alcalde :ame in great haste dud trepidation to the commanding jflicer of the troops here, stating that the ramanches were lav ing waste the ranches on the other side of the river above the mouth of the San Juan, murdering the inhabitants, and curry ing oil captive the childton Mcuulloch's Rangers were at oncc detailed to cross the Rio Grande, and were all in the saddle in almost no ime. To my^ thinking, these Indian disturbances will be ruwui 01 mucn irouoie. II I am not much mistaken, at he great treaty recently held by Gov. Butler and Maj. ,e? ii, high up on the Brazof, it was understood that he Indian* were not to be molested in any war they night be engaged in with Mexico. It might not have >een " so stipulated in the bond," yet the commis?ioner? n the then existing itate of affair* between the United >tates and Mexico were not in a situation to say to the liferent tribes that they muit war no more with a counry that was then acommoa enemy. That they might md did sty to them that thoy were at liberty to wnge io-tilities conformably with the usages of civilized naions, there can be little doubt; but loat they told them lot to approach the Mexican frontier, would nave been a riece of ab?urditv, not t> say stupidity, they were not he men to be guilty of.

It is the bounden duty of he United Mates, as I look upon the mattor, to aflbrd proection to the inhabitants upon the east bank of the Rio iramie; but to what extent the Indians can be lesitinaiely interfered with on this side the river, is another natter.

SATURDAY ft subject of volunteering for twelve month* to any of these l corps, b?tiering that whatever number might be willing to enrol themselves for that period, the evils ef disorganization would far outweigh any practical good likely to result from the change. Much alarm aad dissatisfaction has already been exhibited by these volunteers at receiving from home the rumor that they were to be disbanded unle?s they would volunteer for twelve months. They volunteered with a promptness and enthusiasm scld.-m exhibite I in any country for the period ot sis months, nnd are willing and anxious to rerve out their term, if there be any pio^poct, howt-ver remote of actu ul collision ?ith tiie enemy. Should the expiration of the six months find them engased in a.'tivo operations, I doubt uot a vast majority- perhaps all?would gladly continue their service until tne close of the campaign. I need not assure the department that the excess of volunteer force beyond my requisition was sent to the ar ray against my expectation ana wish; but now that the j regiments arc on the ground, naturally anxious for service, already wall organized, and somewhat instructed, | 1 would respectfully recommend that I be allowed to re. tain them until the expiration of their service, exercis; ing the discretion of discharging any corps who may desire it before that time. They are impatient for service, ! and I shall spare no exertions to employ them actively and usefttlly while they remain. In a day or two 1 will furnish a return of all the vol unteer force. In the meantime the strength of the regiments who are enrolled for less than twelve months,may be approximately estimated at 8,000 men. I am, sir, very respectfully, Your obedient servant, Z. TAYLOR, Bt. Major General U. 8. A. C'omd'g. The Aojptakt General of the Army, Washington, D. C. 11kad QuARTaai La. Bxkiadk or Volcnteebs, ) Camp at St. Juan de Buenavista, July Ifi, 1846, ) Captaiw? I find myself very much einnarrassed by the opiuion expressed by Gen Scott in a letter to the Secretary of War, on the subject of his plan of campaign here. Arguing on the irouossibility of commencing operations heie before the fall, he says tuat the six-montns voluntas cannot be letained legally a day over three months, an I ?n> exertion of martial law over them after that day ti' ill c tl )i i no I anv Ana DH*m ntinV it M tuiiiiskmAnf nr p*trl. butiun Now, thii letter hat been circulated by ionic one inteiestcd in producing disorder, and there is great danger an attemp' will bo m?de, at the end of three months, to claim a release from service, and that officers will be afraid to incur the responsibility of resitting it, in the face of the opinion of the commanding general of the army. Having neither the letters nor the laws at hand, I can quote only from memory; but I will briefly state my view of the question. Under the laws of the United States, the President could only (previous to May 13. 1846,) compel the militia to serve three months. This evidently was one of those jealous restrictions on the power at the general government in favor of the rights of the States and of the people. The President cannot exact or compel a longer service than thrae months: but a provision of law made to protect the rights of any class of persons, and with no other viow, may t>e waived by that class or person. The object of the Itw is to restrain the exertion of power over theni. not to limit or restrain their own action. 80 in Louisiana, certain acts of married women, and obligations contracted by them are null, but they can waive the benefit of these provisions, and are bound by the obligations then made. Now, both the state of Louisiana, by the law providing for the raising of this brigade, and the volunteers by their enrolment and mustering into service, by their acceptance of the bounty and other advantages offered by the State to those who should engage for nix months, have expressly waived the restriction made in their favoi, and the volunteers are bound by the engagements so made, Besides the 3d section of the act of 13tn May. 1840, may have an important bearing on this point. The claim is made that, t>eing militia called into service by the President through his delegate, they can not he compelled to serve but three months. Now, ii they have been so called into service by the President by virtue of "any other act." they ' may. if in the opinion of the President of the United States the public interest require* it, be compelled to serve for a term not exceeding six months after," lie.; and they cannot say that they are surprised into an engagement they did not foresee: for this is precisely the term they themselves stipulated for. Whatever may be the law on the subject, it is of vital importance that it be set'led, before any act is done which may involve individuals irrevocably. 1 therefore respectfully ask that the General would submit this question to the President for the opinion of the law officers of the government tha', let tne law he as it may, we iniy cuniurm ouiselves 10 11. I presume lhat thorns mu-tered into service after the 13th of May, though i^n nan' of the pitasage of the law 01 that day. cannot intoke sgaias'their own voluntary contract, a law which was then virtually repealed. the period of tlione first mustered into service is within tw?nty days of its cloie, if three months be t'ie term little lime is left to hear from Washington; but they can, no doubt, be induced to wait an answer, * our obedient servant, Pr.RSIKKR K. SvllTH, Brigadier General, L. V. Captain W. W. 8. Bliss, Assistant Adjutant General. Headquarters, Army or Occdfatio!*, ) Matamoras, July 16, 1846. S Sir?In my communication of July 1st, I stated that the volunteer* from Louisiana and Texas, raised in pur< suance of my original call, and of the requisitions of Major General Gaines, had been mustered fer six months and doubtless considered themselves bound for that period. Such was my impression, and it waa, 1 believe, a cofrectone at the time. It seems, however, that the question ha* been started among the Louisiana volunteers. perhaps by mischievous person*, whether they can be held for a longer term than thrae month*; and al the requeit of Brigaaier General Smith, I now have the honor to submit the question to the highest authority ? General Smith contends that they may be retained; and to do justice to his argument. I enclose herewith his communication on the subject. My own view certainly is that they cannot be legally held after the expiration of three months' service ; but, at any rate, 1 should deem it highly impolitic to keep them against their will, ex cept with the law clearly in favur of such retention. 1 hall therefore order the discharge, and mutter out of service, of any regiments that may claim it at the expiration of the three months' service. 1 do this the more readily, as I shall soon have moie twelvemonths' volunteers than I can possibly provide transportation for into the interior of the country. 1 am, air, very respectfully, Your obedient servant, Z. TAYLOR, Major Gen. V States Army, Commanding Letters Irom the Armjr of Invasion. No. IX. Point Isabel, (Fort Polk,) ) Texas, J uly 16, 184H. $ From the mouth of the river, a smooth road along the beach, of seven miles, takes you to Brasos Santiago. At the point of the island is now the principal depot; and this place the Mexicans had intended to fortify, if no reverses were encountered to disturb their plans. Had they Succeeded in their late operations, it is obvious tha' the recovery of the harbor and post would have cost us a vast amount in blood and treasure. A small battery would have commanded the inlet. Our works, ordnance, stores, provisions, all fallen into the hands of the enemy, would not only have left a stain upon our arms, but by encouraging the Mexicans, perhaps, ensured us a war ol years. How changed is the scene now from that which has been exhibited hitherto on this coast. Instead of an occasional craft timidly approaching, or putting in over the bar, we now behold scores of vessels, of every style and denomination. Lying outside, as sentinels, are cutters, and other national ships. Steamers of the largest class are arriving and departing, while the smaller specimens are industriously running about from vessel to vessel, or between the Biasos and the Fo t The appearance of every thing is warlike; even thewugoea wear a belligerent aspect Siege picces, ol' large calibre, on the beacn, reveal some dire intent, while a large encampment of volunteers threatens an active and exterminating warfare against the rations which daily arrive. It is an animating -o ne?and a very impressive idea is given of the co.-t of war when it is recollected that not a sail is spread, not a wheel revolves, or a hand moves, bin 4t the expense of the government. Of course, no honest individual is expected to come out to the border of Mexico, and ex[>o*e himself to the perils of war, and an unhealthy climate, unless he is well paid; and the kind old Uncle Samuel cncourngts ma nephews in every exhoruitant demand, consoling himself that war does notcoine every year, and the boys arc justifiable in making out of it the largest profit. It was to the opposite point, the extremity of Padre Island, that Capt. Hardee,of the dragoons, came to reconnoitre in February last. Here the lamented Blake crowed to Point Isabel, and held a parley with the Mexican official. The lattei w af arrested and confined in Matainoras, charged with neglect of duty in lading to seize and hold the .American officer.

Since our recent successful negocia! tion for the free navigation of the river, Point lsa bel has lost some of it* relative importance, as the supplies are now principally landed at the Brasos, ! and thence shipped direct for Comarga. Yei I there is still great activity at the Fort; multitude; of strangers are lound there; and probably thf largest hotel in the .State has been erected and opened under the name of Palo Alto House.?

Alter he had risen from the table anntlier Htranunr. nn editor, nnd At nrpfiAnt mmnr oi' volunteers, and party to the conversation, pro- I nounced the other the most brilliant man of the South-west. It was Rice Garland. So here was the eloquent lawyer and admired statesman, and learned judge, an exile and outca?t, abandoned by friends, and without ihe t-weet solace of home, or even a country. The transgressor's way is hard. Maj. Munroe, the late able commander of this 1 post,has been appointed and joined : Gen. Taylor. His successor is Maj. II. Brown, j 4th regiment. An Ohio regiment has just arrived, under the command of Lieut. Col. J. B. Weller, and having ! for maj?>r, T. L. Hamei. You see the politician* are alive to the importance of a degree of military glory. The " Rose," a most beautiful English brig of eighteen guns is nowiying off the Brasos.? Her officers are true English gentlemen ; they express the warmest satisfaction on account of the reported settlement of the Oregon controversy, and I believe sincerely manifest the most friendly interest in our advancement as a nation. How greatly is to be dvplored Uiat spirit of discord and prejudice which seeks to perpetuate ill leeling between England and the United States. To wear away these vulgar prejudices requires only a more intimate acquaintance with each other; and though our venerable mother does take airs upon herself ou account of her greater experience and larger possessions, yet I believe the most heartfelt joy will be experienced by the English people ai our late victories, as the triumphs of our common race. Two officers of the ' Rose ' have communicau-d with the commanding general on questions arising out of the blockade. It is said lavors are asked respecting certain exports? perhaps specie. This brig is commanded by Capt. Petty. News reaches u? through New Orleans, that Santa Anna has actually at last embarked from Havana. Is this time! and if so, what effect will his presence in Mexico have upon our relations with her 1 are.questions on every tongue.? Should he return pledged to war, we may expect that he will prosecute it with vigor; it without pledges, it cannot be doubted that ne will speedily consent to an nonoraoie peace, it we are to nght let us have opposed to us their greatest General. It will be a more notable achievement to conquer the "Napoleon of the West," as he istondoi being styled, than the hundreds of pigmy Generals that till the Republic. But does not this savor of Mexican bravado, the very last quality I would exhibit in these columns 1 Governor Henderson who has been lying here seriously ill for several days, I am happy to report, is out of danger, and loll for Matarnoras to-day. X. Y. Z. Ancient Ruin* in Tlx as ?Wo mentioned Mr* ral months ago, that soma ancient building* bad been discovered on the Leon*, and we remarked that they probably were erected by the Spa niardi, and were intended lor million*. We have, however, kince aeen one of the lurveyors who discovered them, and he has informed *u that they bear no resemblance to anv of the Spanish missionary buildings, and - are evidently much more ancient than any of the Kuropean structures in America. The stones composing them are worn by rains, and bear evidence that they have stood for centuries in their present positions. The buildings are situated on high bleak hills overlooking the valley of the Leona. Two of them are near the sources of this stream, and the other about fifteen miles below. They resemble large hay stacks when teen at s distance, and are nearly circular in form.? They are composed of loose stones unhewn, piled one upon another, so as to form rude walls, which are gradually narrowed at the top, forming a dome. The atones are not cemented, and the walls are so filled with crevices that the rains and winds can penetrate the buildings in every direction. It is probable that these crevices were once filled with clay or some other material, that has teen washed away by the rains. The largest of these buildings is only 15 or 30 feet in diameter, and about 30 feet high As they are situated on the highest and must commanding eminences in that section, it is probable that they were intended for watch towers; but when, or by whom.tbey were built, probably will never be ascertained. As they are near the western bounder) of the region marked with the traces of ancient mounds, and at the most eastern boundary of the region marked with the ruins of the ancient buildings of the Aztecs and Toltecs, it is not improbable that they were the extreme out posts of the ancient races that built the splen did temples of Oxmul, Palenque, and other similar structures. Possibly the vast prairies east and north of these buildings were the battle grounds where the mound building races and the more civilized Aztecs or Toltecs of the ttouth, often met in deadly conflict; and these rude structures may have been used as watch towers from which the warriors of the ancient races of Mexico were accustomed first to discover the advancing parties , of the Northern tribes.?Hou$t?n (Texas) Ttltgraph, July 8.

I believe every writer of modern love tales, haa essayed to paint the shifting scenes of a ball room. It has been, since I recollect, and I believe since 1 my grand-mother's recollections, a fruitful theme for scribblers of the love-sick. On ?uch occasions ' the heart is supposed to be soft and waxy, and ini capable of presenting any considerable resistance to the honeyed arrows of the god. Why is ir that none of the heroes or heroines are ever represented as falling in love over a good dmner 1 why not 1 It ia that eating is considered anti romantic. Nonsense. We have seen sly looks from behind a smoking sirloin, and burning glances over a plate of roast beef, that would utterly annihilate such a theory ; and for our own part, we make more love during dinner than at any other hour ? in the day.

Grand Bail at the United States?Charitable Fair by the Ladies?Foreigners of Distinction?Reserve of the Aristocracy. Your valuable paper is in Saratoga every morning for distribution an hour in advance of any other paper; before sunrise! yesterday morning, 1 found a little boy,with some twenty Heralds hanging on his arm, at the door of my chamber. The night belore last there was a ball in the hall of the United States; it was but poorly attended and unusually dull. There were, however, present, one or two rare comets, one in particular, lrom I think Philadelphia, a Miss T., if I mistake not. She is decidedly one of the first beauties, as well as one of the most lady-like of those now on a visit here. Last night there was a fair in one of those magnificent halls of the United States. There was exhibited all kinds of ladies' handy work. Sales went otl" well, and the hall for a while was so thickly crowded, lhat it was quite impossible to see all. The proceeds of the sales are to bo appropriated towards building a church. ^To-day being Sunday, there is a death-like stillness, which puts one much in mind of the Sintana Santa at Rome. Yesterday a refreshing shower passed over Saratoga, and has had the desired effect of purifying the air; and a walk this morning was quite balmy in the grounds of tljp Congress springs. There are but very few visiters here from tho South, and of foreigners there are perhaps hull' a dozen Englishmen, one or two French, two or three South Americans, and but one gentleman lrom Mexico, a Mr. P , who, by the way is, I believe, a citizen of the United States, and for many years has been its distinguished Consul in one of the Pacific ports of Mexico The grand ball will come off at the United States Hotel on the 15th, after which people will begm to leave for their homes. To-day there have been more arrivals than on any other sinoe I have been here. On the whole, I do not think that there is, or has oeeri, near so uiuuu gnuy uctc mis sniisvu ?u? former years?there appears to be an universal reserve throughout all classes, and particularly among the higher orders. A number of the most fashionable purpose leaving in a few days for Newport, on their way home.

Why he is a perfect miracle?there he goes,now while 1 write, walking hiins?lfto everlasting faiue. He completed his 540th mile on Wednesday, at four o'clock, and came in quite fresh,amid the cheers ofa large number of spectators. You will remember he is backed to walk one thousand miles in as many consecutive hours?and this he seems determined to accomplish on a plank walk?it is really wonful to witness the extraordinary powers of this human frame, as exhibited in the ancient and bent form of this great pedestrian, who is actually in his 77th year. One thousand miles in the heat of summer, spread out through as many hours,or nearly fortytwo days and nights: having to encounter all the clouds and t>un*hine,ihurider and lightning, wind and tempest, that may occur during his long journey, is what no man ever d.d do, (under similar circumstances) or perhaps ever will, until another ra<;? of men appear on earth. The excitement of course increases as he wears upon the pa>t half of his herculean feat, and dur.ngthe last 250 miles he will be watched with great vigilance and anxiety by his friends and opponents. He takes from 25 to 30 minutes to perform each mile, and sleeps only about25 minutes at a time; lie could manage to sleep longer, but he (corns the idea. He eats light food, and drinks n|>...nn>uli/ mills nnd imtlpr. ten also twii'i> n ilnv ?lie walks with a short quick step, he is indeed a ciuiosity, nnd if he continue* to the end of hi* long journey will make the world wonder, for there has not been one person in ten thousand, who thought it possible for so old a man to accomplish one half the feat. ITe is very deaf?has little to say to spectators, but if he meets a lady on his walk, (which he does a hundred a day,) the gallant old fellow briuhit-n* up. and qu ckens his pace.
