The loss of life on our side was not severe during this day. On the mornin of the 24th, a flag of truce was sent in, which resulted in the capitulation ofthe town. During the whole of the engagement on the 21st, Col. Kinney was exceedingly useful in carrying orders, and in giving advice in matters with which his thorough acquaintance with Mexican customs rendered him familiar. He was in the thickest of the fight, moving about I fr >m point to point, and doing good execution with his rifle This gentleman's services have been invaluable to Gen Taylor in the movements of the army from Mntamoias to this place. He has been everywhere, reconnattering the country, and procuring information, riding night ntid day, and exposing his life in a thousand way s.

That the Mexican force should not appear this side of a line from , Kinrnnndu, running through Linares, and terminating at Kicoii . la and the Americans should not advance berond it.

[From the Washington Union, Oct 1(1] We are permitted to lay before our readers the following extracts of a letter from a reliable source, dated Via* Cnvr.Sept 13, 1S40 ?The government of Mexico it sanl to be without a dollar in the treasury; nor have I heard of its having aJopted any means to obtain funds for prosecuting the war. Ampudia, it was believed, would be at Monterey on the 14th of August, with S.OOO men. A report was prevalent In Mexico on the 3d instant, that Santa Anna had given orders for the Mexican forces at Monterey, and other places in that auarter, to fall back on San Luis Potosi, and that he would meat them with I 30,000 men. The plan of the Ciudadela. ss It is termed, seems to | have been acceptod by the militarv and civil authorities I throughout the country, with great unanimity, and i apparently the operation! of government are going on without difficulty. : From private sources, however, entitleJ}to ?ome degree [ of credi t, I learn that a great portion of the people, I amongst them men of intluence. are opposed to Saata ; Anna, nnJ place no confidendence in his promises. It is evident he apprehends more serious opposition than he | at first expected, from his delay in going to Mexico. He was still at his country seat of K1 t.nrerro, on the thh | instant, where it was believed he would remain until the | meeting of Congress, or until his party gained a decided preponderance. I am of opinion his presence will add greatly to the embsrrasment of the country, embitter the feelings ol parties, and finally lead to a civil war. ; Letters from Mexico, of recant date, mention the arrival I of the Congress, and the departuro of Commodore ' Sloat from Mazatlan for the United States , Tlie province of Yucatan manifests some disposition to I surrender her independence, ami to throw herself once more into the arms of Mexico, under the rule of Santa Anna. * Journals from Vera Cruz to the bth of September, and from the city of Mexico to the 'Id of September, inclusive, have been received at the Navy Department. The Dtariu, or the official paper of the Mexican government, of the 1st of September, publishes the letter of ' Mr. Buchanan to the Mexican Secretary of State, with the reply of the latter, prefaced by the following edito; rial remarks: ? [ "We publish to day, as we promised in our editorial of I ' the day before yesterday, the note transmitted to our government by that of the United States, and the answer v> VUI OVVIOVOI j vr? niaic. 1 lie CUUUUUl Ol IUU present cabinet i* as frank anil honorable as it is possible for it to he. and none of the administrations which have preceded it, has been so explicit with the nation. We now sen that none had such claims to its confidence; the presont cabinet can hardly be said to direct affairs; it is the people who really govern." The same paper contains the following item of intelligence;? "The supreme government has received, by express, communications from General Don Pedro Ampudla, dated the 2tith ultimo (August) They state that he would reach Bsltillo on the 2"th, with the brigade under his command A part, but not the whole, of the enemy's army had moved from Camargo; of two thousand four hundred men who bad left that town, four hundred had arrived at China, ami two thousand were still between Carmsgo und China, three thousand more having remained in Carmago. General Ampudia was preparing to defend .Monterey, where at present, and without counting the reinforcements to arrive, there were mote than four thousand men, full of the greatest enthusiasm, so that the nation may expect the most flattering results." I he follow ing is the editorial of the Diario, of September 2d:? "The existing supremo government being determined not to swerve in any degree from tho national will, has . deferred replying to the proposition made by the government ot the United States to come lo a negotiation upon the questions pending between the two countries, until the nation itself, assembled in Congress, through its rep cnoiuaiKva, urn ueumw u mauer so important; Wltnoui consenting in any manner to waive u discussion ol the \ causes of the war, on llie pretence that they should be , considered merely as past events belonging to history, i and ann >uncing that, until tho Congress shall determine [ the relations of Mexico with tho republic ol the United ' States, they will continue to be such as the present executive found them on taking charge of the administra- 1 tion. In csnlormity with these manifestations, the executive is incessantlv occupied In endeavoring, by all i possible means, to place the republic on a respectable footing of defence, as will be seon >} tho decrees issued by the Secretary ol War, which we publish under the official head, in our paper of to-day, and which are circulated uuder this date." The decrees referred to, issued in the name of General Salas as head ol the government, are, in substance, as follows 1. A decree of August 38, declaring all Mexicans, between the agos of 18 and 60 years, under obligation to take arms in defence of their country whenever they shall be required so to do. 3 A decree of same date, declaring free for one year the importation into any part of tho lupublic, and sale in it, of muskets, carbines, sabres, brass and iron cannon, with gun carriages, and, iu general, every species of warlike arms and projectiles, without tne payment of any import duty; and declaring that the government will purchaso, of the arms and projectiles referred to, such quantity us it may require, at such prices as may be agreed upon with the importers or holders. 3. Another of the same, declaring an extraordinary contingent of thirty thousand men, to bo contributed by the several States in tho following proportions :? Mexico, 8,300 | Micheocan, 1,980 | Jalisco, 4,000 | Vera Crui, 1,000 Tuebla, 3,800 j Durango, 600 Guanajuato 3,0001 Chihuahua. 660 San Lui? t'otosi, 1,800 | Sinaloa, 090 Zacatecas, 1,0001 Aguascalientcs,' -J90 (lueretaro, 000 | Oajaca, J ,000 30,000 It willl>e perceived that 1 ucat/tn is not enumerated in the above list. This decree declares that citizens who voluntoer will be required to atrreonl) two years, but men levied or drafted will be required to serve six years. 4. Another of the same date, pardoning all who may have deserted from the regulur army, provided that they > give themselves up within three months, and permitting . them to serve in such corps as they may select. ft A decree of August 31st, issued through the Depart- ! ment of State, declaring that all officers in civil or nulitcry employment, who snail refuse, without good cauae in the opinion of the government, to render such services as may oe required ot them during the war in which the republic is at present engaged, shall be dismissed from their employments, and declared incapable of being emplayed hereafter as military offtcera ; being liable, moreover, to the punishment already provided by law for such offences as tney mar have committed.

The first is in reply to a summons to surrender; which he declines doit*. as he says he had Rent to the commodore for assistance. In the second, he says that, being convinced there was no hope of saving the vessel, he consents to surrender the vessel, officers, and men, and reqnests that the latter may be landed as soon as possible.

THE IMPORTANT"MEWS FROM THE ARMY OF INVASION. The Victory of Monterey. The city was thrown into a state ol the greatest excitement yesterday morning, by the gratifying intelligence of the brilliant victory achieved by General Taylor amlbi* troop \ at the storming] of Monterey It is with leehngs not a little pleasing, that we nlliirl* fn tVi? tippntinl ni fit* vinliirv mvr the MeXl nan forces at Monterey, the full particulars of which we give on the outside of this day's Herald. It is no more than we expected ; but, on the pre, sent occasion of ?ur success, we feel constrained to observe that the troops of Mexico,under Ampudin, I made a much more formidable resistance than we i thought they would be able to stand up to. It is ( true they fired from behind brick walls, but still they fought for three days. It was, however, ont of the most unequal ont est s in the annals of war; j there were twelve thousand Mexicans in houses and under rover, against six thousand Americans fighting inthe open streets The more severe the rosis ance of the enemy, the greater glory, of course, settles down upon the banner of our own army ; and while disposed to give our enemy credit for his gallantry, and generously indisposed to exult over his defeat, we must, nevertheless, allude in terms of triumph to the gallant achievement performed by our own forces?an achievement which has placed the fair city of Monterey under the surveillance of General Taylor and the American flag. The most interesting part of the success of our arms in the present case is, the proof of valor in the volunteer corps of our brigades. It appears that they stood to their guns well?bravely in deed?and rivalled with success the indefatigable and stoic energy of our regular troops. We now are fully aware, that the volunteer force can be relied on as effective in all our future operations ; and we hope the Mexican government will at least open their eyes and see the necessity for coming to some arrangement, without further delay. The continued battles of three days duration, must have occasioned great losses on both sides ?the accounts state them to be at least five hundred in killed and wounded, on each side; the victory, therefore, has been dearly bought.? Many a brave spirit has fought and died for his country. The only consolation is, under the circumstance, that the loss occasioned to ourselves is also as great to our adversary, and will be a lesson in blood to them. War cannot be carried on without wounds being given and received, and honorable feeling must comlort itself by the reflection, that all who have fallen, have fallen in defence of their country?and the survivers will ] ... !,?. tL... ..k. ... . 1...II 3co iuai muse w 11 w aio uu uioic, suwi i/o loutouibe red in their death, and live emblazoned in the future pages ef historic fame. Gen. Taylor appears to have outdone his previous efforts, and to have arranged his plans in a way that made a failure almost impossible. We are proud to be able to pen this additional record of his military skill aad the bravery of our troops. Our readers will have perceived that it was reported by telegraph that an armistice of eight weeks duration was proclaimed, as a portion of the terms of capitulation. This, we are lead to believe, from the accounts since received, is incorrect. Should it be true, however. Gen. Taylor will, in that time, have an opportunity to add to Ac strength of the works thrown up by Ampudta in Monterey, so that if the latter, relieved by Gen. Sales, from the Mexican capital, should, at the end of said eight, or five, or three weeks, attempt to retake the city, it will have been made impregnable. Gen. Taylor, therefore, by the terms of the capitulation, which many may consider too liberal, has wisely environed himself by his magnanimity, within the formidable fastness of iron security; and while there, he can organise his forces in such a way as to make all future attacks upon the Mexicans, a succession of victories. The armistice said to have been granted by General Taylor has nothing to do with the movemenus or the other divisions of the aimy, or with Commodore Conner, or with the contemplated attack upon Tampico. All our military and naval operations, other than those under the immediate control of General Taylor, will be prosecuted with the same vigor as ever?as if, in fact, no armistice had been entered into at Monterey.? And, as the intelligence published in this morn- i ing's Herald stateB, the cessation of hostilities is 1 only till General T. can hear from Washington; he will not, however, remain long in doubt how to act, as fresh orders for his guidance left the War Department for the camp over a week ago. It is now very likely that as the Mexicans, having been beaten in one of their strongholds, anil Amputha whipped into capitulation, that tins Peace Commissioners, John Slidell and William L. Parrott, will be sent to accompany the army in its future progress towards the Halls of the Morttezutnas. The intelligence from Mexico will continue to he of the greatest importance.

We look upon a rniisead across the United States, with its terminus m some convenient spot on the shore of the Pacific, as no longer problematical. It is one of those thfcgs that must ultimately be accomplished. It ia at present merely a question of time. That a scheme ensuring to this country snch vast commercial advantages must prevail, we hare n# manner of donbt. That it will take time to aeomnplish it, is ; of course beyond question. In several communications made to our govern- ! merit within a year or two, by Mr. Aaron H. Palmer, a gentleman who has conducted tor the last fifteen years an American and foreign agency in this city, we are furnished with the names of such places as have not as yet opened commercial relations with. We trust that our government will take steps for the extension of our commerce to those countries. There are places, as in the case of China, where it would be necessary to send a special miwion, to seevte for our citizens such commercial advantages as would put our merchants on at least an eqaal footing with those of other countries. We hope to see the attention of our government turned to this subject as soon as the Mexican war is at an end. One of the chief viewi of the British government is to make openings for English commerce in every portion of the habitable globe where commurcial advantages are at all attainable.? Even to Shoa, a remote province in the southern portion of Abyssinia, a/e her salt, cotton goods, zinc, copperheads, Jtc., Itc., carried, over burning deserts that it requires the greatest determi nation and physical energy to cross. 1 n exchange for the goods we have enumerated, the English obtain gold dutt, ivory, civet, ostrich feathers, | peltries, gums, spices, Stc., tut- In Borneo, too, Mr. Brooke, an Englishman,ihas established himself so well thrit he has actually got himself appointed Rajah of a province, and thus has been enabled to establish a depot for British vessels in the north western part of the island. After th'i establishment of such a communication with the Pacific as we have adverted to, the trade of the Sandwich Islands, New Holland, Borneo, New Guinea, China, and the rich Japanese islands, would be the first direction of the enterprise of our navigators. Cochin China, Birmah, Persia, and the Indian Archipelago, each possessing inexhaustible sources of commercia] wealth, would in their turn be the resort of our merchants; and taking into Consideration the adventurous spirit of our people, there is every reason to believe that our commercial marine would in a short time be the greatest in the world. In exchange for our exports, Persia would send us her fruits, pearls, precious stones, cashmere shawls,carpets, and drugs; Burmah her precious metals, rubies, sapphires, serpentine, catechu, elephants' teeth, orpiment and teak wood; Cochin China its raw silk, spices, dye wood, gold dust and gums. Japan would give us her dia| monds, and precious metals, ambergris, corals, ! pearls, fcc. Even already we find that American cotton goods are the principal articles exchanged at the grea? annual fair of Berbera. But it ienot alone in Asia and the islands scattered ever the Pacific, that our merchants wilf extend their trade. The Comoro Islands and others, and the countries of the interior of Africa, offer immense advantages in trade and commerce. American manufactures have been already introduced into Abyssinia, and with the Barbery States we have for several years carried on extensive commercial transactions. With China oar trade has increased wonderfully since we succeeded in opening negotiations with that country. We understand that Great Britain has concluded a secret treaty of commerce with Siam, by which she has secured to herself a monoply of privileges and advantages, with the right of in troducing into Siam a number of articles tnUierto ' prohibited. In January, 1846, Mr. Palmer wrote to the President of the United States, suggesting the expediency of sending a commissioner to proceed successively to Johanna, Teheran, from Bushire, Rangoon, Amurapoora, Hue, Borneo, Celebes, Nangaski, Jeddo, and to land at Zanzibar, Muscat, Singapore, Manilla, the privileged ports ot China, and the Loo Choo and Bonin Islands? such commissioner to be clothed with plenipotentiary powers to open commercial relations with all those places enumerated, and several 1 others, and to have a ahief secretary, a limited I number of attaches, and a physician. The object would be to put American commerce, in those reI mote places, on a permanent footing, and to open new markets for the trade df our merchants. We trust this suggestion will be acted on. We know nothing that would conduce more to the advancement of our commerce than such a mission. We have thus ine<rely glances! at the outline of the immense commercial fabric that is about to l be raised by our merchants and navigators. The j subject is too vast for one article, and having thus sketched the outlines, we will, on some other oc| casion, fill up with the details.

This piece abounds with exquisite gushes of melody, and nothing could be better calculated to give a first impression of his extraordinary excellence than this beautiful composition. We cannot condescend to speak in the jargon of musical criticism, of the dashing rapidity of his ttaccalo movement, of the masterly brilliancy of his bowing, or of the many other excel, lances which se carried away the feelings of the audience as to set them completely beside themselves with delight. But the tenderness of his expression was what struck us as his greatest excellence. At the close of this piece the applause was vociferous?bravos resounded from all portions o( the house. The orchestra, whose part it was to play the finale, threw down their instruments in a body, and applauded with all their might Rapetti was shouting and clapping his hands, and when the great maniro, for greet he deserves to be called, was bowing himself off the " B"! iUW ivi iv til MI tutu (laiivu uim eiunu* siastically on Co bock, evidently unconociouo, for the time, of whet he we* doing. The next piece, after another grand overture from tbe orchestra, admirably executed, but almost totally unheeded by the audience, so absorbed were they in the enjoyment of what they had heard from the great artist, and in expectation of what waa to come?and a cavatina from Miss Moss?was the ' Prayer oi Moses," followed by a martial theme,with variations and finale, by Paganini. This beautiful composition, as performed by Sivori ,(we have never heard Pagani. ni) is what it has been very happily termed, " the very ecstasy of prayer." The lark's morning hymn to the Creator, when it mounts on joyous wing up into the blue heavens, is not half so ethereal, so free from all taint of earth, as portions of this delicious " prayer." But we will not attempt to describe a thing that (to use a hackneyed phrase) must be heard to be appreciated. This piece was enthusiastically encored, and the artist repeated the after portion of it?the military theme?with variations and finale. This was followed by the ballad of " Mary of Argyle," by Miss Moss, which was encored as it really deserved to be, being sung with a great deal of taste and feeiing. And now came the grand finale, the " Carnival of Venice," by Paganini, executed by the lion of the evening. This piece, which seems to have been composed by the eccentric maeitro for the purpose of showing how many and how great difliculties he could master, and how capable the instrument is oi carrying on recitative and dialogue, was played by Sivori in such a way that an untutored ear ceuld detect none of the mechanical difficulties with which it abounds, so entirely without effort was it, and so brilliant and masterly was the execution. There was a profusion of ornament, bHt so skillfully interwoven with the theme, that there was no redundancy, no apparent profusion. In fine, his playing excels anything we have ever heard on the violin, or, indeed, on any other instrument. Such i was tho effect of his execution of this piece, that Ra petti again forgot his leadership, and burst out in enthusiastic bravos. The piece was tumul. tuously encored, and the latter portion of it was played. At the conclusion the whole house rose and saluted the artist with one long deafening roar of applause. We have witnessed a great many triumphs of musical genius, but never before such as this of Sivori's last eve. j ning. The audience was one of the most fashionable ever before congregated together in this city. Among the rest we noticed John Tyler, Ex-President of the United States, and his family, Collector Lawrence, Mr. Da la Forest, the French Consul, and his family, and others of ?"! mno? rocnortfiMg rUtTsnff Tlia immflnM ftUAmblur4 | of fashionable people was the more extraordinary, from ; the fact that a report had been circulated to the effect | that the artist would not be able to perform last evening, in consequence of his temporary indisposition. His se; cond concert will take place on Friday evening next, the 16th inst., at the Tabernacle. On that occaaion he will 1 perform the firet part of a grand fantastic concerto in B minor, the celebrated rondo " II Campanello," (the hand bell,) and the favorite variations on the air " Nel Cor," (violin solo,) all composed by Paganiui. He will be assisted by Miss Mose, Mr. P. Mayer, and Signor Rapetti, with his splendid orchestra. Mr. Lovca.?This gentleman gives his fifth "Irish Evening" to-night, at the Stuyvesant Institute.

Although, from the time of Shakapeare'a "Othello," and the "Revenge" of Young, the paaaion of jealousy haa been made the keyatone of many a tragedy, yet the author haa here.fwlth infinite akill.contrived to throw around thia topic auch a new and powerful charm, eo freeh a grace and elegance, that we loee eight of all former aaaeciatioaa, and become spell-bound and carried away by the all powerful intereet awakened.

The last scene was one of her greatest effortsshe never wrought more powerfully on the audience?it was one of the proudest triumphs of her art?it was tender, impassioned, violent, despairing, and almost frenzied by turns. It took the house by storm. She gave many passages with great tenderness and beauty, such as in the first act, on the receipt of her husband's letter? s " Oh ! 1 am undeserving of such bliss," Sic.; And that touching passage, ' There's not a liower but I have watched its growth, And hoped it would not bloom till Walter came? 1 here's not a bird," fee. Also, " You'll kiss me f or I'll think you're angry " And that touching appeal? " Have mercy On me?for my sake?for those happy years Of never clouded love that we have known? For those too blissful hours, when all of life Was the sweet barter of each other's smiles? For these be merciful! " It was an exquisite piece of acting, and nobly did she | carry out the conception of the author. The part of Sir j Walter is one of strength and deep feeling.

All this was powerfully p'ayed by Keau?the Session was marked by a powerful energy?the transi on* "from tenderness to rage?from doubt to confidence ?from love to fierce revenge," were in his best manner, t nd admirable throughout. We have only room for one paage, which was given with a pathos that went to the soul. " Mr home ! my home '. Oh '. what a worldles* joy To be in thy familiar clasp again ! In absence is seemed almost too much bliss For hope to picture?my returning foot Paused on the threshold, doubting still lest changes Like a spring frost, had nipt some bud away.

Mr. and Mrs. Keau have nobly fulfilled their duty to the author, and have given us a sweet, powerful, and delightiulplay Its merit and success were great, and it must always be very attractive.
