Jiom that ihey woulJ allow no treaty to ba negotiated with tha Aotfii'ini, until tha lat'ar ha<1 poritively evacuated the country We And do mention made of the capture o! Chihuahua. I but there hn? been au action in the immediate vicinity of I El Peso del Norte in which our troops were entirely I auacesifiil. The report of it ia altogether Mexican, uud was published in the capital on the Jflth ult. Our limits comiwl us to condeuse it On the daih of December, Senor Cuy Iti was at El Paso at the head af 4*) regulars, who, added to the Pasenos. or troops raised near El Paso exceeded lOiK) in number. The Ameiican* were at Dona Ana 400 strong. Ihey alvonced upon El Paso. Cuylli prepared to light them, but tbe evening be was to set forth on his march he was Seized with a violent brain fever, which rendered him helpless The command devolved upon Tidal, who p-jkses:.ed little military skill, end expected to surmuud and dr stroy the Ameijeans like so many rabbits. He pashed lorward five huulred cavalry under Cap. tain Antonio Ponce, of which one half were Pasenos.? The Americans demanded a parley, which was denied, a id the fight immediately commenced. 1'onae charged at the hca I of his cavalry, but in vnin, aa he was wounded in the first onset. Just then tha Pasenos ran, ami tin- * nich drorder into tbe whole that all took to flight, 1> oving n howitzer iu the bends of the Americans, hut carrying otf three other pieces. Vidal returned with all speed to Carrizal, forty leagues from El Paso. The loss oil each sida was not known or is not stated. On the 'J7th the Americana toek possession of El Paso with fluO cavalry and 400 infantry. The cavalry immediately started in pursuit of tha runaways, and although it was not known at Chihuahua on the -Jd of January that they had overtaken thorn, it was thought likely they would get poevession of two wagons which were iu the rear with the park, as wall aa thirty men who escorted them. This aeetn probable to ua, too, though we much doubt if the Araencaas ever got up to the lunawuy s. Tha account then goes oil into lamentations that tnrougn mm cowardice 01 tne nsenos, all their stir rifi"ca and suffering* have been in vain. The situation of thetr State appear* hopeless to themselves.

The stock* of most of the delinquent Stetea lave net only improved in market value, but in real ralue, and we much queition if the aotual value of the onda of Indiana and Illinois haa not increased withgreatsr rapidity than the market value. The public debts of these States, and wo might include Michigan, have relently been plased upon a more favorable foundation than they ever were. The burden* uoon the taxable property of each State have been mueh reduced, and a resumption of intereit ensured at an earlier day than has heretofore been deemed poaaible. In annulling a large amount of the bond* of the State of Indiana and II linoi*,by transferring the income of the public work* to trustees for the payment of the intereit on that portion of the public debt, the States.are in fact relieved of eo much indebtedness, and the pablic finance* so much im. proved. The?o public work* are held by the bondholds r?, who have cancelled a certain amount of the bondfor the security of their claim** and for the payment of intereat on the debt, and have ne claim upon the treaau' ry of either State for a fraction. If theae public work* produce a net revenue more than aufflcient to pay the Intereat on that portion olthe public debt depending upon hem for such payment*, the balance of courie goes into the treasury ofthe State, for the payment aofar as it will jo of the interest on the other part of the public debt' In the meantime, the revenues of each State from taialion, are appropriated to the payment of the ordinary expenditure* of the government, and to the payment of a fractional part of the annual interest on the bond* now outstanding. This arrangement has, in our opinion, improved the fiuaucts of the States of Indiana and Illinois very ma lerially; but there is another movement going on calculated to increase the value of the stocks of these States, to a much greater extent, and that is tho rapid improve ment in tho value of lands withiu their limits. The extensive demand for our staple agricultural products, and the high prices ruling in this, and all the other markets of the country, must make the prolific lands of each of these States much seught after, and very desirableWe aie likely to have a permanent demand Irons foreign countries, for our staple agricultural produets, particularly wheat and corn; and the soil of Indiana and Illinois being peculiarly adapted to the cultivation of these grains, it must rapidly in crease in value by an influx of aattlar*. The popula. lion of theae States baa for aeveral year* pant increased mora i apidly than that of any other two in the Union, notwiibkiauding the heaty rate of taxation and the odium of delinquency, which baa existed so long in each of them. We have no doubt that emigrat ion to these States has been somewhat checked by the fear of heavy taxes, fcc , but these objootions having been par tially iamoved, the population will without doubt inciease mote rapidly than it has heretofore. The lands owued by the States, by the Bank of Illinois, the Dank of Indiana, and other incorporated institutions, and by non-residents, will come into the market and tind ready purchasers at enhanced prices. The completion of the public works of these States, could not be more opportune, as thoy give an outlet fur produce iroaa the into* rior of each State, and bring lands naar markets from which they have hitherto been shut out, These products became, therefore, more valuable at tbe place of production, and lands near these outlots, of course, more valuable. These are One times for the farmers, and it is our impression that this class will con tinue to ieceive remunerating prices for their products. We look for an auuual deficiency in the harvests o I Ku rope, to an extent sufficient to create a demand for external supplies large enough to keep up prices in this country to a lair, paying point. This will sustain the agricultural classes,',and pi ice their prosperity upou a proper basis, to be strengthened and increased by the eteady increase in the domestic demand for consumption. The finances ol the general government have improved very much within the past lew weeks. Treasury notes bearing interest at the rate of six per cent, are ia demand and bears premium, which will enable tbe government to raise all the money it wants. Tho independent treasury ia virtually a dead letter, and will rcmuin 10 at present, or so long as tho demands upon the Troa ury are su much larger than the ineomo. Specie cannet accumulate in the hands of the Sub Treasurers so long as uur expenditures continuo so large,but the banks sru kept in check by it, as they know not what a day may bring lor h, arnl me therefore, under reatiaint, pursuing a very cnutieus policy .keeping their operations within pro per limits, and confining them to the legitimate channels ol eommerce. The independent treasury is, therefore even in its present liteloss state, a valuable conservative measure, calculated to maintain a uniform movement In our banking institutions, and to keep the currency clear of thoae S'lddan expansions and contiactions which pre vioua financial ?y*temi of the government have been the prime ceuee of. The itringeot effect of tho independent treeiiny >item will be more felt after the war dose*, when tho finances of the government have becomo more ettled, ami tho expenditure* reduced to the ordinary amount We ehall then have a specie currency to auch an extent that tho hank* will be compelled to reduce their operations to the lowe.t point, and pi ice* for every letcription of property become reduced to that itand ird.

It waa reported on'change that some.efforts had been made to arrive at the probable stock of flour in thii market, and that it waa thought that 1-J0,000 barrels would rover all in the city, including the stock in firat hands, variously estimated at 50 a 70,000 barrels, and the supplies held on speculation with stocks in the hands ol the milling and retail trado It must be borne in mind, however, that to arrive at an exact estimate of the total amount of stock is attended with much difficulty, and the above statement may amount to something over the mark, or tall a little short of it. De this as it may, it is agreed upon all hands, that the stock ia very low compared with that of last year atj the same period, and should the river remain closed till late in the season, this fact would of itsoll be sufficient to stiffen prices. The stock in Philadelphia and Baltimore is said to be good ; but the freights on it from those ports to New York cost about 60 cents per b rrel, or more from the latter. Until the canals open, largo additional supplies cannot be expected to arrivo to replace the deficiencies, at any mateiial reduction in the present cost of transportation. In wheat, sales were chiefly confined to lots from the country, adjacent to the city, at full prices. In corn, there was less done, without change in prices, except, that the article was feeble at a dollar. Provirions were in less request, and smnll sales of prim4 pork w .,u made at a decline ol 60 cents per barrel since the forepart of the week. Mess do. was offered iu a small way, at a reduction of 95 cents per barrel, without buyers. This decline was attributed to increased tightness of money in Wall treat. In beet, the markot was firm, while in lard and other descriptions of provisions there was no change. Groceries continue steady at previous rates.
