The melancholy intelligence ha* reached a* that Capt. Randolph Ridgely, of the SJ regimout of artillery, lired but three day* after hi* accident. For a part of thi* time he we* in a itate of iniemlbility, hot comciouanei* returned before he expired. Thi* add* another to the already numerou* unhappy accident* ef thi* war ; and perhap* it We*, in ?otna respect*, the moat mournful of all in it* character. When poor Blake received hi* mortal wound, on the morning of the 9th of May, he exclaimed with unguiah, "Oh ! that 1 had died in battle !" The army and the country felt that the conflict where.he had displayed *uch noble zeal and daring, wa* the fitting place for the aoldier's death. And here again the nation i* called upon to lament the fall of another of her Jewel*, who, though young in years, had pa*?od a life-time in battling lor hi* country. Well may they exclaim in contemplation of the fate of this young hero, " Would that he had died in battle!" There is no man, old or young, who ha* been more honorably distinguished thus far in this war than Captain Ridgely. At Palo Alto he performed emineot service in aiding to drive back the lancers,who, from the enemy's left, attempted to charge the-6th regiment ol infantry. it will he remembered that he wa* detached with a section of Ringgold's battery for this purpose. At Resaca he wa* con*picuo<w>, bringing his lection into battery withina few rod* of the enemy' guna, and even performing some of tl* manual operations at his pieces, us his own gunners were slain. But alas! he now sleeps beneath the ensanguined field, where he was again more rocently distingniehed, without the dying consolation that be wae permitted to yield up his breath in the conflict. But his name shall not die. X Y. Z. Matamorai, Mexico, Nov. 1!2 1846 Death of Major Lear?Attack on Tamrieo, tfc Another of the Monterey heroes has died of his wounds. It was hoped, though he was so seriously injured. that he might possibly recover; but nature be came exhausted, and Major L.ear is no more He is th sixtn omcir 01 a single i egimeni, mo aa imamry, wno * fall at Monterey, l ertuiniy its banner should be in" scribed with the deeds ot the three days. Major Lear teas a native of Ma'viand, and was appointed irom the array, a lieutenant of the 4th infantry. Feb IS, 1S18. He had been absent on welt futlough for many months, aud arrived to join and take command of his regiment only a day or two aiter the glorions battles in May. For maay years, he was in command of Fort Hinith, and made himself extremely popular in that portion ot the Southwest. MaJ. Lear was highly respected as a gallant and energetic officer, and dies lamented by the whole army. We hear much in the newspapers about the taking of Tamplco; but no direct or official intelligence has reaehed us in confirmation. I saw, yesterday, a letter f"om an intelligent Mexican to an American merchant her*, written from a town near Victoria, and ot recent date, stating that Santa Anna had withdrawn the garrison from i ampico, leaving but a small guard in charge of the public works and property. The seme letter savs that lien. Urrea is understood to be collecting e considerable force of rancheros, or irregular cavalry, in the neighborhood of Victoria, with the design of commencing t'ie guerilla system. It is Impossible to say exactly what truth there may be in theae reports. Tbe receiver of the letter has entire confidence la the writer. We hope it may prove correct that Urrea or soma other commander is actually collecting a f orce in lower Ta maulipai; for, Irom certain eigne, a movement on our pert is in contemplatim towards that portion of tho now State, and oar troopa would like to find a little excitement to cotnpeaaate for long journey. However, as our boundsry now clearly extends to tho mountains, it it hoped that Mexico may not show herself so regardless of our rights as to advance her troopa into her neighbor's territory. From every thing wo can learn from the interior, a laige Mexican force ia assembling at Han Luis. I trust our government will now take measures for holding, hsneoforth, the territory we have conquered. Let our Governor* he appointed?let our civil lews be extended ?let us tall Mexico that her four northern States are ir recnvarably loitto her. It may lead h?r to wholeiome reflection. X.

(From the New Orleans Picayune, Not. 17.] The steamship Massachusetts, Captain Wood, urrired here yeateiday from Brmzoa Santiago, having left tbere the aitemooB of the 19th met She took out to Brazo* tioop* from New York, a list of the officer* of which we Eave not long aince.

In a dense fog which ahe encountered at the mouth of the river, the Maaaacbueetta ran aground, and had to wait lor a beat to tow her olf, which delayed her eeveral hour*.

It seamed to be regrotted that Gen Taj lor, from motive*, perhapa, of delicacy, retiaiDtd from interfering in any way with Gen. Wool's plana. It ia conceded that the latter'* troop* can be more serviceable acuta of Chibuahua, which does not renuueso large a force lor it* subjection We have uo definite kuowledge of Gen.' Taylor's plans, but may ataie that the prevailing impression among officers is that Tampico is to be the neat point The Kentucky Cavalry, still near the mouth ot the Sao Juan, weie expected daily to recaive orders to march in that direction. The Tennessee Cavalry arrived at Fort Brown about the f>th mat., and were also expecting to leave immediately for Tampico. Commou report itiQ assign* Gen.

Macon, Secretary of the Navy, Washington. A Detailed Account or the Fboceedinc* or the ExrEDiTioN undaa xr Command along the Ea?tern Coait or Mkiico. I lelt the anchorage of St. John Lizardo on the evening of the tilth of October, with the steamer Mississippi, having on board a detachment of 900 officer*, aeamen. and marine*, under command of Captain French Forreit, and in tow, the steamer Vixen, and achoonera Bonita, Kejfer, aad Nenata, reapectively commanded by Commander Sands, and Lieutenanta Commandant Benham, Sterrett, and Hazard, and tbe acbooner Forward, and ateatner McLane, commanded by Captain* None* and Howard, of the revenut marine. The next morning at daylight I captured off the bar of ' Alvarado, the American bark "Cooaa," found in treason- ' able communication with the'eneray; and the aame day the "Vixen" chased and boarded the American acbooner "Portia." The "Cooaa.' waa despatched to thia place aa a prize, and the Portia wa? permitted to proceed, ker paper* having been endorsed. From the day of our leaving Alvarado, (tho 17th) up to the 33d, we had a succesaion of very bad weather, which gave me much trouble in keeping my little command together. During the inI L. a rtHi I?. I or,.I l..?l In K< I schooner "Telegraph " , On the 93d, all the vessels, with the exception of the Reefer (previously separuted in a Relet reached the bar of the river Tabasco ; and having determined on attacking the commercial town of Frontera, at the mouth of the river, and the city of Tabasco, situated 74 miles higher up, 1 placed myself on board the Vixen, leaving the Mississippi in command of Commander Adams, at anohor outside, and taking in tow the Bonita and Forward, with the barges containing the detachment under command of Captain Forrest, I crossed the bar, the Nonata following under sail. The Vixen, with this heavy drag, steadily ascended the stream against a four knot current, and arriving near to Frontera, i discovere I two steamers (ot which I hud received previous information) firing up, doubtless in the hope of escape, but we were too close upon them.? Casting oil' her tow, the Vixen proceeded ahead, followed by ttie other vessels and barges, and at once the town, the steamers, and all the vessels in port were in our possession, excepting only the schooner Amado, which vetsel, attempting to escape up the river, was pursued by Lieut Commandant Benham in the Bonita, and captured. Desirous of reaching Tobaaco before they would have time lor increasing their defences, the detachment under Captain Forrest waa placed on board the largest ol the captured steamers, the Petrita, and she, with the Nonata the Forward and the bargee in tow, and the Vixen, with the Bonita, left Frontera at half past B the next morning. Lieut. Walsh being left in command of the place. Atter steaming aii night, and encountering varions incidents arising from the rapidity ot the current and the oircnitous course of the stream, we arrived at 9 the next morning in sight of ro>t Acraohappa, intended to command a moat difficult pass of the nvar. On our approach the mcD employed in preparing the guns for service Aed. and we pasted it unmolested, but 1 was careful to cause the guns to be spiked. Anticipating serious resistance at this place, arrangements had been made for landing Capt. Forrest with his detachaient a mile below the fort, to inarch up and carry it by storm At noon, all the vessels anchored in line of battle in front of the city in half-musket range, when I itnmedie'ely summoned it to surrender, the boats meanwhile being employed in securing five merchant veesels found at anchor in the port. To my eummone, sent by a flag with Captain Forrest, t refnaai to capitulate wee returned, with an invitation to me to fire as soon as 1 pleased. Suspecting, as I did, that this answer was given mere in brevado tnan in earnest, and being extremely reluctant to destroy the place, 1 en tertaineil the nope mat a iow snots nrea over tno uuiwmgs would bav? cauied a surrender; Accordingly, 1 directed the guns of the Vixen alone to be tired, and at the flag itaff, tending an order to all tbe vessels to avoid, ao tar aa poaaible, in case of a general Are, injury to the bou?es diatingniabe I by contular flaga. At the third diacharge from the Vixen, the Aag disappeared from the atalf On seeing it down, I ordered the ttring to cease, and aent Captain Forrest again ashore to learn whether it bad been cut down by our shot, or purposely strnck. The reply was, that it had been shot away, and the city would not he surrendered I now directed Capt. Forrest, with the force under his commatid, t? land and take a position in the city, commanded by our gnna. This movement brought on a scattering Are of musketry trom various parts ol the city, which was returned by the Aotilla. Perceiving toward* evening that the enemy did us but little injury, though openly expoeed on the decks of the small vessels, and their balls passing through our slight bulwaika, and apprehending, from the proverbial heedlessness of sailors, that should they and the marines be M?alr.J U ?V - .freeta aftae /dnelr ?katv k . eat otf by (harp'ihooUn from the houses, 1 ordered the detachment to be re embarked. In thia position the veaaeli remained all night, the orewa lying at their quarters ready to return the fire of the artillery of the enemy, which it waa supposed they would hare bad the courage to hare brought down under cover of the night to the openings of the streets opposite to our vessels, but they left us undisturbed. Learning that the merchants, and other citizens of the city were desirous that a capitulation should be made, but were overruled by the governor, who, regardless of consequences, and secure himself against attack, was content that the city ahould he destroyed rather than surrendered, I determined from motives of humanity, not to fire again, but to pass down to Frontera with my prizes In the moi ning, however, the fire was recommenced from the shore, and was necessarily returned, but with renewed orders to regard the consular houses, so far as they could be distinguished. In the midst of the fire, a flag of truce we< displayed on shore ; on perceiving I which, I cansed the bring egain te cease, end Captain Forrest was sent to meet its hearer, who aubmitted a written communication addressed to me, e copy ot which, with e copy of my reply, marked B and C, will be found enclosed. As an assurance of my sincerity, I now hoisted a white flag, and directed the prize* ?to drop down the stream, intending to leliew with the flotilla; but, in violation of the understanding implied in the before mentioned correspondence, the enemy, in discovering that one of the prizes bad drifted aaboie in front of the city, oollected a large force within and behind the houses in the vicinity, and commenced a iurious fire upon har.? Lieut. Parker, of this ship, in command of the prize, de (ended her in the most gallant manner, and ultimately ucceeded in getting her again afloat, having one ot her men killed and two wounded. It waa in carrying an order to Lient Farker that Lt Morria waa wounded. He had been of infinite aervice to me from the time we left Lizardo, and, conducting himself during the bombardment with remarkable delibera'ion and cool net* he approached the prize in a line to covet hia boat; and though apparently regardful of the tulet) ol the officer and men of the boat, who were aeated, he stood etect himsi If, and the ball atruck him in the throat No one can deplore the fate ol ttiis very valuable young officer more then myaelf. Hialoaa ia Irreparable to tne service and to bia family. It may wall be supposed thet on perceiving the ettack upon the prize, I reopened upon the city, which again silenced iheir flro. I now proceeded with the flotilla and pnzea down the river. One of the prize*, a araall aohoonor ot Utile value, having grounded in a dangerous paaa, an<l knowing that it would ba difficult to extricate her without causing inconvenient delay, 1 ordered her to be burned. We arrived aa/ely at Fronteia on the evening of the tlfith, the "Vixen1, having towad down the river nVe ve?eeie and several bargaa From Krontera i despatched my prizaa to tbi* place; and alter destroying all the vessels and craft found in the river ot too little value to ba manned, I proceeded on tbe 31 at to rajoin you, leaving the McLane' and Forwatd at anchor opposite H routera to continue the blockade ol the i iver, ana to afford protection and shelter to the neutral merchants, reaideuts of the place, who profeesed themselves in apprehension of violence from the Mexican soldiery should they be left unprotected.

(From the New Orleans Delta, Nov. 17 1 By the arrival this morning of the Yucatan schooner Your.g Leonidas, from Camneachy, we learn that on the '79th tilt., the squadron anchored oil' Tabasco, and sent a barge with a white flag tojthe town, demanding its suirender. The Commandant wenton board and had an interview with Commodore Perry, which ended in nothing vory definite lie was taken to shore in one of our boats, which, on returning was fired at from the shore, without, it is believed, the sanction of the authorities. One man in the barge was wounded. This bring done, Commodore Perry ordered an imme'diate attack on the place. After battering down some of their woiks, a force of some hundred men were sent ashore, who found the place deserted?the enemy having to a man, retreated Possession was immediately taken of the place, and prize* made of the shipping and their freight. Trie schooner Portia has just arrived, having left the squadron in tho Oulf on the 9th inst We learn from a gentleman, a passenger in the P., that Commodore Perry, alter capturing the town, was unable to continue in possession of it, because of the insufficiency of his force, and had returned to his fleet. [From the X. O. Picayune, Nor. 17.] We have been furnished by an officer ofthe navy, who arrived here this morning in tho schooner Portia, Capt. Powers, six days from Point Lizardo, who was engaged iu the airair of Tabasco, with the annexed summary and sketch of the proceedings of Com. Perry with the do1 achment of vessels sent under him against Tabasco. The enteepiiso was altogether successful. The object of the expedition was to cut out certain priz anchored in the river. These were all taken. When the citywas summ no I to surrender, 'lie people were all in favor ol yielding at once. The Governor and sol.liarv nnnnaatl it Tim* waa fimn for all nAanAohla Mr. sons, women end children, to * ? out of harm's way ; but tho Uovernor would not allow any one to leare, io that it is feared mott of those killed during the bombardment were not soldiera. Some of the regular* were killed.

I From the New Orleans Picayune, Nov. 17.1 The brig Emilio arrived at Havana on the 3th instant, bringing dates from Merida to the 44th of October. El SigloXlX of that date announces that the government ol Mexico has recognised the existence and validity ol the treaties of December, 1843, and gives the official do cument in condrmatien. One of these is a letter from Santa Anna to Oen. Sales, requesting him as a debt of hoDor to condrm those treaties, and to annul the regulation which prohibited the importation of certain Yucatan products into Mexico. This is followed by a letter from the Mexican Secretary of State to the Governor of Yucatan, in accordance with 8anta 'Anna's wishes; and the causes of difference between Yucatan and Mexico being thus removed, Yucatan will proceed to name deputies for the Constituent Congress, Gen Barbachano is confirmed as Governor of the State, and the|prohibition against certain Yucatan products in Mexican ports is annulled. In regard te the attempted revolution in Campeachy, the news we gave some dayssince is confirmed. It grew out of the reluctance of people to accede to the reinstatement of the power of Santa Anna,and to re-enter the Mexican confederacy. They anticipated that the United States would promptly close their ports, and thus cut off their little remaining commerce. We'trust they will not lie disappointed. What the issue of the revolutionary attempt in Campeachy was, we are not informed. The IHario de la Marina represents affairs in the peninsula to be in utter coufusion. The Yucatan Congress have voted to adjourn on the 40th ult. Before adjourning it passed a law which the Governor approved and promulgated on the 93d, the provisions of which we copy from toe Diarit. It is of importance to commerce. The manufacturers of cotton and other- goods enumerated below will pay henceforth a duty of 10 per cent, iustead of 95 per cent, on the valuation in the tariff:? Ginghams, tickings, crcas, estopillas, cotton twist and thread white anil colored, lino, listados, madapollanee bleached and unbleached sheetings, merlines or merlin ques, cotton cambric, linen cambric, handkerchiefs, white or colored, not exceeding one vara square, platillas, man, imperial Irish linens. By the arrival of the Campeachy schooner Joven La onidas, which l?tt Cam|>eachy on the 3il iout., we have the remit of the Tabasco expedition. but lull detail* of that subsequently came to hand by the lortie. Account* have been received at Campeechy from Calkineanuouncing a pro tunciamenlo there, an 1 tnere weru report* of a like one having been made at llalacho. The Joven Luonidai came into port under the Campeachy dag, not Mexicau Our latest dates from Campeachy are to the 30th ol October. From the papers we learn that the citizen* o> Catnpeachy are determined not to acquiesce in the reannexation of Yucatan The pronuruiumento was made on the J5th of October, and a copy ol it ha* already been laid before our readers. The people have come forward to its sup|iort in such numbers s*ys ElJlmifo del Purbio ol the 30th, as to leave no doubt that it was made in conformity to the general will. " Its triumph may alteady be announced s certain, and consequently demagoguism will shortly die toruver, leaving a lesson tor [ such men as may heieafler come to rule." AVo have the certificate of the U 8 Consul at Campeachy that all the United States vessel* which hare arrived at that port have been permitted to load and unload without molestation, and tneir lights respected as if in a time of profound peace. A certificate ol like effect has been received from the Consuls at Sisal and Merida. [From the New Orleans Timet, Nov. 17.] The schooner Joven Leonidat arrived this morning from Campeachy, bringing advieet from Yucatan to the id inst. of a somewhat contused, but upon the whole highly important character. She brought likewise despatches lor the State l)e|>artmcnt at Washington, containing, we are informed, full accounts ot the origin and progress of the quarrels between the different sections of the peninsula ol Yucatan, and copias of the pronuncia montui made by Campeachy and Laguno, in favor of the independence 01 wie atiiio una in lowi separation irom the Mexican Republic. The American squadron was exercising a rigid surveillance along the coast, ordering oft'all Yucatan^se vessels that attempted to euter any ot the pons between Tabasco andtbe Rio Grande, the entire line having been declared under blockade It appears that Campeachy and Laguna are in earnest, in their efforts to maintain the independence of Yucatan, while Meriila is equally bent upon securing the union ot that Siate to Mexico. Since tbepronnnn'oasrn/o in Merida. of the :16th of August, declaring the re-annexation accomplished, great discontent has pie vailed in Campeachy and Laguna. In both these towns, the disaffection augmented until the citizens, by common content, agreed to | repudiate the connection, and raise the flag ot Yucatanese Independence. Merida, it seems, is the prin* cipal customer of Mexico, aud will reap many advantages Irom the removal of all commercial restriction upon the entrance of her products into Mexican ports Hence she is particularly intrusted in efleeting tfle incorporation of Yucatan into the Republic of Mexico. On the other hand, Campeachy and Laguna have no such interests at stake, but tear the suspension and total destruction of their large foreign commerce by blockade, in the event of Hiking part with Mexico. This is the real secret of the various intrigue* and inteatine bickerings between tha several towns of Yucatan. The quariel has become tierce and bitter, and private letters w hich we have perused state, that in Campeachy it is in contemplation to raise and equip an armed force of two thousand men for the purpoae ot marching on Merida, and compelling that refractory and intractable town to desist Irom its isolated position, and to come into the policy of Cam peachy and Laguna? a policy ny wnicu me independence ol the province will be insured, and iUconsequent neutrality will entitle it* flag to respect. Thiais the true statement ol the case, so tar as we nave been enabled to gather it from an attentive inquiry into all the facta. AFFAIRS IN MEXICO. [From the New Orleans Picayune Kxtra, Nor. 19] We have dates trom Vera Crux to the Slst ult. The 8lata of San Luia Potosi has pronounced against the Presidency of Oen. Nalas, demanding that General Santa Anna should assume the Executive functions, or some ona named by him. As a precaution against the apprehended attempts.upon his life, (Jen. Ralas retired on the 36th of Oct. trom the capital to Tacubaya, and has taken up his residence with Henores Flores. The greater part of the permanent garrison of the capital hare taken up their quarters in me same place. Santa Anna is. we think, determined that Oen. Sales shall not obtain too absolute an ascendancy. Report says that Sales is honest enough to attempt to carry into effect all the guarantees of the revolution of Jalisco and the Citadel. We venture to sav that the rule of Salas will continue to bo disturbed sufficiently to remind him of the fragile tenure by which be holds power. Santa Anna professes to act in the utmost harmony with him, and on the 33d of Oct addressed him the following letter:? HasnqUAATEBS or the Libkeatiiso Abmt, | In Campaign. $ Most Excellent Sib:?By tha circular ol your Kxcellency of the 19th lost., [we have before published this circular,] i have learned with deep concern that the foreign enemies of the count ry4*by means of their recret agents, circulated malicious reports on the night d that day with a view to produce so impression thai there was a plan dn foot to deprive of power his F.xcellency the general charged with supreme executive authority, which reports led to most serious alarm, that might have produced lamentable consequences, had not the artifice been very opportunely discovered. 1 rejoice rxceedingly that tranquillity and public confidence have been reestablished, and agreeably to the wishea of'he .Supreme government, 1 shall take caie thet these great blesaings are not disturbed in these I assure your Lxcellency that thu army shall not euteitain any other idea than that of struggling against the forsigu enemy, fulfilling its dntivs towaids.thecountry, and scouting the suggustions witli which it is sought to divert it from such noble aim?.

"We are igno rant ol the aim oi this movement, which will leave the points mentioned without delence, but, wilhout doubt, it is necessary to hit plan of attack. We nave no doubt ef this, because we have the greatest confldsuce in that Ganeral, and wa trust tnat tsod will protect the army of the republio, which have been placed under his orders." Besides the resignation of Senor Rejou, Secretary ol State, as already mentioned oy us, Senor Paobeco, Miniter of Justice, Itc., has resigned The first has been succeeded by Seoul i).

The Mexican papers have seen nn estimate of their forcos at Monterey, made by the . !m> ricmi Flag, and append thereto?"Our readers Uiioiv very well tliat the American forces iD the action wore double the Mexican." A Tampicojournal of the 0th ult, discusses the campaign with temper and sense. It admits our successes, and attributes them to the superior discipline of our troops. It predicts continued success for us until they shall raise and discipline an army?not a rabble of men. It calls upon the uovernment to fortify their towns, as they have done San Juan de tlloa. But we have not time to givo the article A battalion of 400 volunteers fro n Puabla arrived at Jalapa on 2Mb ult., under Col. D. Pedro Herrem. Their destination it supposed to be Vera Cruz, which tho Mexicans regard as tho next point to be attached. Over tiOO recruits had been raited for the Army atGuadolajara on the lstb ult. The pronuneiamrnio of (Jen Othon at San Luis did not aiqount to a revolution, It was an explicit declara tion in favor of Santa Anna, and mndo to the prejudice of Oen. Salas. Letters of the 30th ult., from the city ol Mexico, say that the difficulty bad been arranged, and that (Jen. Salas returned to the capital on the 29th, agreeably to the advice of Santa Anna. All these difficulties require a word ol explanation, and wo have room but for a word, The late revolution In Mexico was brought about by a union of tha federalist* and Santa Anna's partisans, Santa Anna of course holds his own, but the federalists are divided into two parties, the Putot end the Modemdoe?the republicans and the conservatives. The divi1 utAna Vastim/sasail VViaaa torn sntinna of thn lArUrflliatl mm. blej Santa Anna to hold the balance between them. 8alai i? a conservative, and the acting executive ; Gomez Farias ii Preiident of the Council of Government which waa inatituted on the lat alt., and he ia a republican. He aimed to aupplant Salaa, to make the church bleed more freely for the war, and to compel the rich, ii they will not fight in perton, to pjy thoao who will. Kejon ia an adherent of Fariaa. They attempted to obtain frem Salaa various decreea against auapected persons, Sic tic , and not succeeding. Hcjon resigned. The resignation of Cortina and Pecheco?both conservatives?grew out of these dissensions, as it will not answer to throw the whole weight of executive influence into one scale. In a long address of Gen. Salaa. of the UAlh ult, he declares his purposes anew?to carry out the programme of the revolution. He and his party desire to have all questions of reform postponed till afte the war. These difficulties extend to the Natio 'at Guard, which circumstance renuera them much more prolific of danger to the public peace. In this connection it inav be proper to add that Rejon and Farias are said to be concealed, but tbut no pursuit is made of them Santa \nna has it in his power through these divisions to assume a dictatorship at any moment, to the letter which announces the settlement of these difficulties, he is re- I ported to have said that his sole aspirations were to pass Irom the fi Id of triumph to his domestic firesiie.and that no human power will make him accept any public office I We do not tbiDk a copy of this document has been rei-eiraitivsirsssrviura that tiexicana have little faith I in hi* professions, for report* reached u* yesterday both irom Tampico and from Monterey , that Santa Anna meditate.I a dictatonbip. and one report said that it had actually oeen declared, but this *? presume wu premature.

General Cortazar i* said to have raised 3000 troops at the various haciendiai near Ban Luis and Uuanajuato Their equipment is peiticularly noted, and i- called very admirable. In the city ol Vera Cruz where en a'taclc is anticipated, there are 1500 regulars troops, 1000 Nations! Guards ol Vera Cruz, ami 4000 of other towns. They have been laboring at the fortifications of the city, and under great disadvsnt igea. being exceedinly short of provisions ? The municipal authorities have done ali t ey could for their relief, and the latest account* say that the funds expected trom the capital bed also come down. It is obvious, however, that the city could not stand a long siege, A lottor is published from Ampudia, dated the 10th October, from saltiilo, in which ho gives some information, derived by him from Cspt. Kaulac, who lemained behind at Monterey, and wrote tight days after the de ; i ,,. 'I u.lvi^u, ..,,1 so late by two or three weeks aa our own, but yetpoanm interest. Captain Faulac says that the number of American troopa engaged at Monterey wa* 10,000. Of th se he saya that T.104 ware either killed er wounded. He declarea that he counted with hia own eye* low) wounded, many of whom were officers, and among them ho mentione 1 .en. Butler. He complain* of aome outrage* committed by aha. volunteer*, mention* the dlahandment of the Toaan*, he., he. The artillery taken by the Americans he say* ha* been found far the moat part to be in a atate not fit for service, and he add* that the American troopa have done nothing to the fortification* of Monterey. He makes particular mention of the eatimation in which the American officer* hold their Army, aaylng that the valor of the soldier* iahighl y extolled at the expense of that of the officers. We have received the official report of Gen. Mejia of the operations of the second brigade of the Army at Monterey under his command on the 'llat September. It bear* date that day. Gen. Me|ia, we had learned from ourown officers, distinguished himself at Monteroy. Ho was continually in sight, urging on his men to action ? We can scarcely forbear translating his report, but our limits postiveiy forbid it to-day. He does every justice to the intrepidity of our troope, which the Mexicans regarded with great admiration, lu the list of officers who were in the field, he name* aevaral who were made prisoners by the Mexicans, a nd this reminds as to giv* more prominence to the fact which has scarcely, if at all, been noticed that by eaeb division of our Arm yum any prisoners were taken; and a few of our men were'suppoeed to be taken by the enemy. After the capitulation of Monterey there was aome talk about an exchange of prisoners,but for some reason or other it was not carried into formal effect, but the prisoners we had taken were all released unconditionally, and retired with the rest of the Mexican Army. We atiU miss the Mexican report of the last Alvarado affair, but w* have Gen Almonte's circular touching it. H* treats it as a serious lesson to oar fore** to teach them Providence must ever aide with law and justice in a struggle against rapacity and injustice. In conse queue* of th# defence made at Alv*rado, the title of " illustrious " has been conferred on that city, a city charter granted to a village near by for having supported the deience, and thanks givan to th* people in other village* on tue coast for like cause. Wa have late accounts from Chihnahna by this arrival. In the news from St Louia, Mo , which we publish fto day, mention i? made ot Mr. Magoffin, Owens and other*.
