John M. Patton desired to make a statement, and was sworn.?Mr. Boy den spoke to me to appear here as his couusel, stating that imputations hail been made against him in relation to this affair. 4 tcld him that a witness would not be allowed to aptiear by counsel; but after waiting seme few days, and llie examination being put off much longer than J expected, 1 advised him to appear in a pablic card, and prepared it for him, as he represented it to tne. He said on one occasion, Mrs. Myers was in the parlor of the Kxchange, sent for him, and told him she wished to see Mr. Hovt on business, and asked him to send for Hoyt. That he went for Hoyt, and told him a lady in the hotel wished to see him. At another time she told him she wished to see him (Hoyt,) and he being then in the house, Boyden informed him of it. He went to the parlor, but B. could not say who else was in there. These circumstances he told me of, when I was prapar- ' ing his statement to the public, and I advised him not to put it in his card, but to state it before the court in hia evidence. I wa? here yesterday, whan he gave in his evidence; end when he had finished it, he came to mo and inquired if i had hoard hia atatement, and whether he had aaid too much or too little ' 1 told him I aaw nothing wrong in what he had etatej? but that he had not mentioned the interview* be'ween Hoyt and Mr*.

Ye* ; lince Hoyt was shot he ha? showed me an anonvmous note, which he say* he received about the middle of April.

The note Mr. Myers showed me he found placed under the inner door of his office- 1 On reading tho note, he said he got on his horse, wool ' home, leaped through the window of a basement story, went up stairs, and there found Mr. Hoyt, with hit hat and gloves on, in one of the reception rooms.

WORK OF THE RICHMOND TRKiKDY. The Intercepted Correspondence. We publish in another portion of this day's paper, the further correspondence and evidence j that ha' been produced on the trial ofthe Messrs. I Myers, in the case of D. Marvin Hoyt, at Rich- j moiut. We give the testimony and letters in full, iu order to do justice to all concerned in this painful affair. News from Ktirope. The Great Britain is in her twenty-sixth, and the Caledonia in her fourteenth dav. Oar Relation* with Htxlro.?Tht Mean* to 1 obtain an Early Peace. The war with Mexico is to be conducted with vigor. The brief cessation at Monterey will ena- | ble our troops to make their next dash one of i startling effect. The vigorous prosecution of the war to the very capital of Mexico, is now dictated by prudence and humanity, and we believe the government are to adopt it as the only one that will attain the desired object. With this view, the plan of the campaign has been changed. General Taylor, it is understood, will leave Monterey occupied, and march with the main body of the troops under his command to Saltillo, to engage the enemy there, if he should have an opportunity ; but at all events to hold possession of that plaoe until he should be advised of the result of the attack and capture of Tampico by the fleet under Commodore Conner, who has received directions to use all the force under his oommand for that purpose. The march from Monterey to the city of Mexico is at least six hundred miles longer than from Tampico, and hence we see the object the administration have in view in altering the plan of invasion, to be a march to the capital at once, by the shortest and most direct route. It would appear from this that the action of our government nas nnnerio oeen oasea on uns probability that, after the Mexicans had met our forces and sustained a deteat, as they necessarily must inl every engagement that may take place, they would at once see the inutility of further continuing hostilities, and would immediately sue for peace ; and being disappointed in this, they would have girded up their loins and determined to pursue a more vigorous course of action, and march directly to thccapital, and capture it, hoping when it was reduced, and in the possession of our forces, the end will be attained. This we are disposed to believe is the present condition of aftairs; and we are glad that the administration has altered the plan of the campaign, and commenced in earnest to "conquer a peace." We are also further informed, that in case the attack on Tampico should not answer the purposes contemplated, that the naval force of the United States will be employed in reducing the castle of St. Juan d'Ulloa and the city of Vera Cruz. It will thus be seen that the war with Mexico is in fact only now rightly commenced, and that ere long we may expect to see a new trump turned up. The cards have been shuffled over, by which we have got the advantage, and that advantage must be followed up till the game is won. The Meg* of Monterey. The steamer McKim was hourly expected at New Orleans on the 9th instant, with later intelligence from the Army of Invasion. The details of the storming of Monterey are looked for with the most intense anxiety; it is thought we bgve not yet heard of half the slaughter that oceoned by the impetuous courage and determined spirit of our troops. The Winnxbaqoes?We rejoice to learn that the President of the United States has concluded ; a treaty with the chiefs of the Winnebagoes now j in Washington, on terms more favorable to the ) latter than those at first proposed by the Commis- | sioners ol 'he United States. By the conditions ' of tliis treaty the tribe cede to the United States all the lands at present occupied by the Winnebagoes in Iowa. We are immeasurably the gainers by this arrangement, but yet we are much pleased to find that our government has treated the sad men in a spirit of liberality. We think it of the greatest importance that our red brethren should be impressed favorably towards us, and we trust that all our future dealings wuii merit win ue ciuirnuierizeu uy a iciiieiu ariu liberal spirit. It is certaiitly our best policy to cul- l tivnte their good will; and when the race shall have become extinct, as we fear it is destined in a lew years to be, we will not have the remorse of having crntributed in any degree to their destruction. These Winnebago chiefs will return home impressed with an exalted opinion of our government and institutions; and what is yet of i more importance, impressed, with a lively sense ' of our magnanimity?whereas, wc, a powerful I nation, granted to them, a weak tribe, in consideration of their weakness, terms far more liberal than those which we thought due to them in stric justice.

in the battles ol the Rio Grande where his horse was shot from under him, while, in the absence of senior officers, he was leading the 8th regiment of infantry, under the orders of the gallant Col. Belknap. The correspondence ol the deceased, a aery ao- | coinplished etficer, has heretofore presented the movements of the army with great perspicuity artd force, rendering his loss the more to be regretted, as the public will henceforth be deprived of the benefit of his epistolary narrations, af peculiarly descriptive and truthful in their representations. If ho had survived the brilliant victory of Monterey, it is easy to auticipate what would have been the charms of the letter he proposed to write, and through it the world would nmve been more perfectly satisfied that the commanding General exercised as much distinguished wisdom in agreeing to the terms of capitulation, as lias bis military achievements given increased renown to the American arms. To have rejected the terms ol' capitulation might have risked the fate of a brave army, and could not have failed to have occasioned immense sacrifices on both sides. In the records of valorous actions, there is none which will stand superior to the siege of Monterey, where a large garrison of well appointed and disciplined troops were compelled to surrender to a force scarcely half their numbers. In the capture of Badajos, a city of less size and weaker military importance, the Duke of Wellington, with 24,000 men, in perfect armament, against 4,000, a remnant of the French army, left to sustain a forlorn station, lost, in killed and wounded, 4,000 of the pride of the British army. In the military circles of Europe, the conquest of Monterey will be justly appreciated as an almost unparalleled victory?through which the officers and men, regulars and volunteers, have covered themselves with imperishable glory. If th# administration are not blind?irrosslv in different*) the important advantages we possess ?they will not delay a moment to make the most powerful demonstrations about Tampico, that no opportunity will be afforded to the Mexican government to concentrate forces in the rear of our invading army, cutting off from them the means of subsistence, and the ability to recruit their strength without embarrassment The army of invasion is small, and the greatest care ought therefore to be taken, that nothing should be allowed to occur which might in any manner retard its movements, by weakening or impairing its concentrative power. We are advancing very far in an enemy's country, amongst a most treacherous people, from whom we have nothing to expect but deceit and assassination. We ought, therefore, to look exclusively to our own preparations, as the only sure guaranties for a successAil termination of the war slsalto, mcxico, ) September 13, 1846. ? Mr Dsab Fbicnd : ? The srmy hea commenced its movement from this place upon Monterey. Gen Taylor started this morning, accompanied by the first division, under the command of Gen. Twiggs; the second division under Gen Worth's command, departs to-morrow; and the volunteer*, nuking the third division, under Gen. Butler, follow the naat day. This town is situated in a southwest direction from Camergo, on the Rio Grande, and distant seventy-five miles. It is aearly central between Camargo and Monterey, and was selected as a temporary depot, till the army could be eoncentrated. It is very ancient for America, and some fragments of architecture, are said to kw iha Ths hutls)intra ara rioar. ly all made of a disintegrating atone, and partake of the Spaniah mode. The people do not appear to be mnch in advance of our aemi-civilized Indiana. They are very tuapicioua of na, and in conatant dread of tne military threata iaaued from Monterey. Camp rumora have been rife for aome days, and the peculations on another battle have be<>n fluctuating. We have but six thousand troops, and know nothing of the strength of the enemy. One report from Monterey make a their army sixteen thousand strong?another, the very next day, reduces it to two thousand. I must suppose that Oen. T. has the beat information, and knows best what course to pursue. We have it renorted from one mouth that the army is to advance thirty miles from here, and await further instructions from Washington. Another, that five thousand Mexican troops await us at the same spot, to give us the first reception south ot the Rio Orande. The former would be an indication of peace ?the latter, of continued hostilities. We begin to see the trouble of moving an army in a foreign country. We are necessitated to look to Mexicans tor assistance, not only in giving information of the country, but in furnishing the means of transportation, as well as the means of subsistence. The policy seems to be, to bribe the people by kindness. They declare they would rather have such a war than the peace they have been accustomed to; for our army never disturbs them in their dwellings, and at tho same time, by its wants and demands, fills their'pockets; whereas, when a Mexican force passes through a town, notice is sent in advance, to have ready for them such things as they may call for. If not furnished, the town is plundered; and they never think of paying for supplies thus furnished. On the other hand, if tney find one individual in better circumatancea thau others, they compel him to pay tribute, or break into hia premisea This deters many from seeking weolth. or, it they possess it, compels them to conceal it. We are in sight of a beautiful range of mountains, a spur of the Sierra Madre. After travelling over flat table lands for such a length of time, the sight of a mountain is very pleasant, and is a great relief from monotony. We have the advantage of continued healtn; pure mountain springs furnish clear, cool water, and the atmosphere is pure. We letrn that it is sickly on the Kio Grande, at Camargo and Matamoras, both of which places have no troons?we mav therefore esteem ourselves for tunate in being marched to the interior, ior now commence* the aeason for licknea* in the country, and esp* cially along large water course*.

PEDRO DE AMPUDIA. Head QuaeteXs o? the An my or the Nobth ) September 15, 1846. $ The object of the circular which is annexed in English, is to make known to individuals among the troops of the United States?who, I am informed, desiro to abandon that flag?the kind dispositions with which they will be w elcomed and protected under the flag of Mexico, whose only device is to resist the unjust aggression of the neighboring republic, and to open wide the arms of the republic to those who seek the shelter of her flag with friendly purpose. Therefore I now direct you, that such ,, soldiers as may present themselves from the enemy's ranks with friendly purposes, unequivocally evinced, be assisted and conducted to the interior of the republic by the most convenient points and roads. But those who present themselves in a hostile attitude, or who, under friendly appearances, conceal sinister designs against the sacred rights of the republic?against these you are directed to make war in every mooe. And in case the conduct of those presenting themselves should be doubtful, and it be difficult to determine whether their purposes be friendly or hostile, you will send them unaer a secure guard to head quarters ; and if this be not possible, from circumstances which may occar during the war, you will have them marched to some point in the interior beyond the reach of the enemy's advanced parties. I make this communication to you for your punctual and exact compliance therewith, holding you responsible for the slightest omission in regard to any point contained in this order, the high importance of which is wall known.

Gexexal's Qcabtess, iis the Citt ok Saltillo, > August 38th, 1846. j Fei.low Citizkss?For the second time I appear in this interesting nart of the Mexican territory, command ing soldiers who anxiously seek the combat, in order to lower the insolence of the foreign invaders of our soil, and to tree you from the odious slavery to which they will undoubtedly reduce you, should they succeed in carrying out their nefarious designs. Of this truth you have before you visible examples, in the unforiunate fate of which your neighboring brothers ef fiejar, Bahia, and lately, those of the north of Tamaulipas, have been the victims. What a contrast does this reprehensible system of conquest present?so unworthy the nineteenth century?to the false promises and baae seductions of which, on another side, our enemies avail themselves, in order to cool your patriotic spirit, and to abate your desire to obtain liberty! And this they do, fellow citizens, because they fear you, and are well aware that this great principle is incontrovertible, that "when a nation wishes to be free, it must be tree." Recollect, my countrymen, the heroic opposition which the Spanish nation?in its cities and forts?offered to (he formidable array of the great Napoleon? an opposition which finally resulted in their success Ana no less should you remember that the heroes of the emancipation of our metropolis, unaocustomed to battle?ut without a knowledge of the science of war?witho the necessary elements to attempt i:?and without the great reasons to actuate them, by which we should be influenced at present?fougbt bravely for a term of eleven yean, until the chains which joined us to the will of a distant monarch were torn asunder. We ceased to be a colony, and Mexico, since 18-21, has brilliantly shone in the galaxy of civilized nations. My friends, our brother departments are preparing for the battle?they will send te the field thousands of brave volunteers, with all necessary supplies ; and lastly, it is very probable that the chief of our independence?the | founder of this republic?the worthy benefactor of the | nation, and general of division?lion Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna?will return to the seat of war at the head of a large reinforcement of troops, in order to conduct the campaign personally.

Jitioii ubetit one hunoad and if ty aiilea in the interior The* wore to leave on tthe aecond of September, and would, it wa* supposed, be absent about two week*. By the time of their rettm, it waa expected that the Mormon Battalion of Infantry, under the commond ot Liout Col. Smith, would ha*o arrived at Santa Fa, and than the expedition against California was to commanca. In this expectation they would bo, howevor, disappointed, as letters from CoL Smith, written on the rente, say that ho would not bo sbla to roach Santa Fa before the first of October It had bean determined that the two companies of dragoons under the command of Capts. Moore and Cook, and the balUlionol Mormon Infantry, were to ac company General Kearney on the expedition to California. Nona of tha Miasourul volunteers were to be employ ed in this service. We further learn, that, after the departure of General Kearney, the remainder of the force was to be dirided One half of it was to remain amenta Fa, including the battalion ofartilleiv under th^ommand of Major Clark, and a company of dragoons under C?pt. Sumner. The remainder of the force, under Col. Doniphan, wat to march to Chihuahua, tbero to be attached to Gen. Wool's amtjr. It was supposed that ha would arrive there in October, but it is not probeble'that he loft San Antonio before the first of the month. We learn nothing of CoL Price's regiment, but presume that he would continue his march, without any unnecessary delay, to California. MaJ. Walker, who was with Col. Price, was anxiously looked for at Santa Fa by the volunteers, who wsnteJ their pay. Soma of the traders had sold out their stocks of goods st Santa Fe, at a small advance. Others were waiting to hear of the entrance of Gen. Wool into Chihuahua, to which place they intended to proceed in a few weeks.? The overrunning of the country, by the American army, seems to be regarded as a matter ot course. MISCELLANEOUS MILITARY AFFAIRS.
