New Orleans papers to the 23J ult. inclusive, contain advices from Tampico to the 13th, Galveston the 11th, Brazos the 16;h, and Vera Cruz the 2d. The Louisiana volunteers, wrecked in the Ondiaka are all sate, with the exception of six,whom the Colonel was constrained to leave behind. No action occurred between the volunteers and the Mexicans. The volunteers reached Tampico on the 9th instant, all in general good health, but very much exhausted by lorced marches. Seven were abandoned a few miles from the first camp, unable to march, and it was found impossible to carry them through the sand on litters. One overtook the main body. The others remained, and are probably well, in the hands of the enemy. General Scott was hourly expected at Tarnpico. The sickness of the troops atTampico has been exaggerated. Their health generally was excellent. There are about seven thousand men eager lor action, but ignorant of their immediate destination. It is presumed Vera Cruz will be the next point of geaeral operation, and they expected to leave Tumpico in February. The Catharine was still off Tampico,with a portion of the New York regiment. Many officers had gone ashore. The soldiers were not allowed to land. Had not heard of the Mississippi troops on board the Statesman, who, lrom last accounts, were suffering deplorably by siekness. High honors from head-quarters were ordered to be paid the memory of the late Lieut. David Gibson, second artillery. He was a native of Virginia, and graduated at the Military Academy. Captain Brown, of the schooner Pioneer, sent by General Patterson to succor the volunteers in he Ondiaka, returned to Tampico on the 9th, and reported, that finding the volunteers gone, he set the Ondiaka wreck on fire, and burnt it. The adventuie of the Louisiana volunteers is particularised in the Picayune. The day they took refuge from a watery grave opposite the Ondiaka's wreck, they received visits from several Mexicans of character, as well as peasants and fishermen. The volunteers were led to expect assistance in the way of transportation, from the promises made. But the scoundrels were spies disguised, and in the afternoon, under a flag of truce, General Cos demanded an immediate and unconditional surrender. Alarming representations were made of the swarms of armed Mexicans prepared for cutting off ull retreat, and Cos represented his force at eighteen hundred, when in reality he had but nine hundred and eighty, all told, and many of ...... ?-11 ?* ?i . . - in.., uiiuiiu -v?i wiiuiii naa entereu into ttie scheme with hopes ofgain and plunder. Colonel I)e Russey answered the Hag of truce, but was not allowed admission inside o( Cos's lines. Col. Do Kussy was granted until 9 o'clock next morning, when the Americans must surrender or ' light. At night the camp tires were lighted and the Americans marched! leaving their knapsacks, and all burdensome materials, which would impede their flight, and not wanted for sustenance. In 21 hours they went ahead 35 miles, and not an armed Mexican was seen on the way to Tampico. Cos thought he had posted men so as to cut off the Louisianians' retreat, and deprive them of supplies and succor. Yankoe perseverance foiled hitn. There were about ninety serviceable guns in possession of the volunteers. The others were I lost in getting ashore. This was one reason for uc i\u??y noi waning. General Patterson was making extensive preparation to rescue the volunteers when they arrived. Gen. Scott probably left Brazos on the 1<> h, on board the steamer Massachusetts, which was said to be waitirty for him. Four companies of artillery under Smith and Swartwout, and Lieutenants Shackelford and Hinton, were acting as a body guard to General Scott. C tnp Palo hns been discontinued. Gen. Worth and staff were at the mouth ol the Rio Grande, waiting to embark. AH the troops were in motion. The 4th nnd 8th infantry were on board; also the first regiment of nHes, second dragoons, Taylor's light artillery, Col. Duncan's battery A detachment of recruits were still ashore. The roads between Camargo and Monterey arc almost impassable on account ef robberies. The rancheros were gathering from all quarters. They are oxpecting an attack at Matamoras. The plaza was fortified, and the city placed in a statu of defence. News of the capture of Borland, Gaines, and Clay is confirmed. At Vora Cruz General Valencia had been relieved of command, and his place supplied by Gen. Vazquez. The Mexicans were convinced that Vara Cruz would be the next point of attack, and were busi- 1 ly engaged in fortifying the passes and roads to the city of Mexico.

Lost, 10 to 30. Mr. Bknton spoke upwards of three hours, ottering numerous amendments. Mr. Johnson, of Maryland, remarked that the course of the Senator was extraordinary, and he would be held fully responsible for the failure of any important meegure not passed in consequence o f this consumption of j time. Mr. Bknton rejoined, and charged an invidious attempt to establish a paper in opposition to the administration. Some warm words ensued between Hannegan and Benton, when the reaolution was postponed until six o'cloak in the evening, and the Senate adjourned to that hour. The Sonata reassembled at 0 o'clock. A resolution was ottered to suspend the joint rule, so as to enablo bills to pass from one House to the other and adopted; which was concurred in by the House.

On motion of Mr Setieh the Senate took up the three tilliou lull Mr. 1'i.ahcl roae and laid he should confine himaelf to ne special purpos., to w it : the vindication of tbatiutii tbi*tory,as haa baen aald heretofore by the Senutor rom Missouri (Col.

Mr. Pi-area took iaaue unnn thia * umptinn, and maintained fiom history that Spain discoered Texas, named iU rivers, inttlad its colonial gave ha people hoi language, and built the tuwni of the proinco. In proving tUi-i poiition that Texai wui a colony pi Hpein, Mr. Fearcu quoted numerous hiitoriani, and naps from various gaegraphers, from 16110 downwards n regard to the boundarios of Texas, Mr. Pear.e refered to a map of Stephen K. Austin: and more particularly o a speech in the Senate of Col. Benton, some thr?? ears ago, in which, as well as in Austin's map, the Tex n boundary is sat down us the Nueces an! not as the lip Urarnlo The assumption cf the Kiu Bravo as the poundarv by the treaty of 1844 (the Tyler treaty) thu lanutor from Misxouri had denounced us an act of piracy nd infamy of which he weshed his hands. What less ran the assumption of President Polk ' it was precisely he same as the infamy of President Tyler It was the erne of the Beats and aronas, only the movement of the rmy by Tyler gave no oB'enee, while the march y ordera of President Polk, resulted in the levitable consequence of war. And yet the Senator rom Missouri had denonnced the infamy of Tyler, while e had approved a far more disreputable policy on the art of the present executive. On the suhjec' of cor uest Mr. Pearce argued that it was a losing game?we uould never be reimbursed for the costs of thw under king, lie also had great inurs on the sluvery question, ut ho would say nothing of that now. fie was opposed > this three million bill on two grounds; because its obict was not specified, and as far at disclosed, it was insnded to pay oil' the Mexican army, to which he could ever assent. He had no objection to the Kio Orande as boundary, and to a harbor on tha Pacific; bnt ha would irafar a twenty years' war, and the loss of a hundred nllliona indemnity, to tho seizure of New Mexico aud California; and if tha war wai to be turther prosecuted with this object, he should feel bound to oppose all meaiures for its proseoution, and should doit fearlessly. TNI W1LM0T VHeVISO. Mr. Dix had desired to speak on the general question ?f the war; but had waived his privilege for more com petent hands. He had rather be a listener than a speaker. He should now confine himsellto the question of slavery. After stating the rights of tho old States under the compact of the constitution. Mr Dix argued that on tha admission of any new States they were entitled to the equal rights of the old States. We had admitted Texas ax a slave State, with the proviso that thero was to be no ilavery north of 36" 30'. And yet Texai hud extended iluvery over the whole territory. We had admitted rexas as a slave State because we found her so. We iod the equal right to receive u free tcrntory as wn fiud it. And yet in free territory admitted as a free State, the State so admitted may afterward establish the institution if slavery?so perfect ia the sovereignty of the Statos. Ha was iulavor of this bill of $3 000 000-ho was in lsvor if the acquisition of the territoiy proposed-he had ilways been in favor ol acquiring California, on account >1 its harbors -they wura or would tie useful to us, md were of no real utility to .Mexico. lu all this torriority proposed to ha acquired, sluvery does not exist. It s furevor prohibited by the Mexican couitituhon?some nid contended that xlaveiy still existed in Mexico; but it loex not. if u iiiuu is in debt, he may bo compelled to work it eut?and il a laborer becomes indebted to the proprietor ol a hacienda, or large estute, he may be c impelled o work it out [Message irom the House?several hills ] lut the constitution of Mexico forever prohibits slavery u tiie republic. Shall we, then, establish sluvery in any erritories we may acquire of Mexico I Mr Dix hoi o aferred to and read the resolutions ot the New York .egisluture, and to the almost unanimous voice by which hey had been adopted. New Yoik was not ale in.. It was tha sentiment of the wliolo North that slavery shell uot be established in any territories in which it doos not now exist. Nor was this a new principle. It was tne nrnrinol mnvomont nf \1r. Jf.flarBon in tli? ie?<l#r;il nnli nanco of 17H7. It wm hi* measure , and in this he stood couaiitcnt with the Declaration of Independence, drawn up by tho same baud. Mr. DiX'here described the anperior condition of the free State*. And he doubted not the NotthweHtorn .States, now instinct with life, prosperity, wealth and intelligence, looked back with pride and admiration to this wise and beuificent ordinance of Jefferson, prohibiting, and in a measure forever abolish, ing slavery in the Noithwest territory. That great measure, theralore, went beyond the doctrine ot the North at the present day. The policy of the North had, notwithstanding, been denounced as an aggressive policy. And yet the North had aided in the admission of Louisiana, Florida, and Texas?Texas, which ot itself embraced nearly an equal amount of territory to tho thirteen origieal States. We had absorbed til the surrounding slave holding territory, and the north had not only contented,but had aided in its admission. Now, all that we ask is, that the surrounding territory shall be admitted aa you find it. Lot it come in free. The southern States would suffer no material restriction; but if admitted as slave States it would cut oil the lreu labor of tho north?the freo laborer ol the north cannot con sent to place himself upon an equality by the side of ttio southern slave. You will, therefore, cut off the north from all materiul benefits in thia territory, by admitting it with the institution of slavery. He argued, that the Wilinot proviso was a proper condition to the bill, and denied the consistency of that interpretation of the constitution which stretches it to tho capacity of incorporating slave teriitory, while it denies us the right ol admit ting and preserving a* free territory any territories that we And tree, nnd existing under un eternal exclusion of slavery. Mr Dix next turned to the question of civil war. referred to in connection with this dabato? He deplored it; and drew a boautiful incline of the prosperity of the great Kmpire State, and her u&coiiqueiable integrity to tho Union, preferring to place and keep heiHclf on an equality with the smalleat S ate in the Union, rather than to stand pre-eniiuout over all tho reat in a separate independence. New York was attached to the Union, and would maintain it; but aho would oover consent that free territories should bo acquired with the avowed object of extending tho institution of slavory. Mr. Cohwi-s wished to explaiu the vote which he gave for the bill of 13th of May, 1S44, declaring the war to exist, and for raisi, g 60,000 volunteers, lie. Tho reference ol the Ctonatorfrora Delaware today, (Mr. J M.' layton) to that vote required this explanation He accordingly expluined, that the motives which induced him to givo that vote were, the relief of lien. Taylor ?for he was in danger of being cut off end destroyed. Ho never gave that vote lor thu supimrt of a war of conquest and lust of dominion. Out tlu< circumstances for su; porting the war now were totally diffcront.

Mr. Bcius.-I don't admit the dis'iuction. It is a distinction without a difference. In the South :t is all laboi, and I doubt much it the North is not largely indebted to the South lor her piosperity. Under considerable excitement, Mr. Butler continued lot some time to denounce tho degradation pioposed to be put upon the South in very strong terms.
