You will perceive by the enclosed, that notwithstands I Ing our wall founded suppositions to the contrary, the conquest of New Mexico was not destined to be entirely i bloodless. The battle of Bmzito has, I havo no doubt, : settled the whole matter as rrgards this territory. Col. I Donipbsn may meet with some resistance nt fcl Paso, where it is said the Mexicans have several pieces of cannon; though Judging irom the shameful rout at Braxito, it cannot be expected that the resistance will be very serious. In the sfi'air referred to, the volunteers behaved with the cool intrepidity ef veterans. The force that met Col. Doniphan at Brssito was, no ! doubt intended to co-operate with the disaffected of this | teriitory, who had almost matured a plan oi revolt, and ; expected by tbc aid of thesetroop* from the south,to have beon able to drive the Americans out of the country. By the vigilance and activity of both militaiy and civil au- ; thorities, the plan was detectpd; and though the most prominent movers were too ear?fni ?>. i?? ?<-? ? ' 1 1 way, to be caught, yet enough of the primary actor* 1 were taken, to enable the authoritie* to discover the ! whole *okeme,and to frustrate it *o far a* thia pait ot the ' country ia concerned; and the detest of the force* aent to aid them, I conaider a* cmaking the laat hope* of tho rebellioualy inclined. A traveller, direct from Chihuahua, gives ua the Mexican account of the battle of Monterey, which concedes the victory to the Americana, and the taking of the city, but at a great loa*. Of thia, no doubt you have aaore direct and authentic information Major M. Lewis Clarke leaves thia morning, with six piece* of artillery and one hundred and twenty men, te march to the support of Colonel Doniphau. He will probably be able to reach K1 Paso by tbe -J-Jd Inst, which may possibly be too late to aid in the taking of tho place. What Col. D.'s future movements aro to be, w e are not positively informed. Whenjuinod by Major Clarko, his force will consist of i about a thousand men, with which force it would seem to be en act of temerity to march ou Chihuahua, though j it is rumored that such is Col D.'s intention. We regret to lose from our city Capt. Weightman's , tomnnny of artillery, which leaves this morning. The whole battalion of Major Clarke, officer* and men, aro decided favorites of the community here, in consequence of their ntiict discipline and invariably gentlemanly conduct. I consider them as efficient a corps as can be found in the nrmv. The little excitement created by the new* of the elt'air at Brtiito having subiided, and the threatened rebellion suppressed, all is again quiet in New Mexico, and will, I hope, remain so. The last IndSfienJenct Expositor, speaking of the projected rise in Santa Fe, says, on the authority of letters: "Some eight or ten of the ilogleader* of this conspiracy had been arrested, and were awaiting their trial, some two or three priest* amongst the rest It was thought that some of these would be shot as soon as the matter could be fully investigated by the proper authoiities " The same paper learns that the Governor of Chihuahua had sent up word to the traders, than near K1 i'aso, to come dewn, and that they would be protected; hut that the flghtat Bracito had doubtless prevented them from doing so nn'il thiuas were mero settlod. The following is also frotn the Expositor i ? We learn by letters received irom Santa Ke, that the men who went out with Apoyer, the trador. were all arrested in Chihuahua end held as prisoners of war. They succeeded, however, in effecting their escspe from cus- | tody, and attempted to make their way to the United , States in the direction of Texas. It seems, however, that a company of Mexicans from Chihuahua went In pursuit and found, as they said, their guns and mules, but could notllnd the men It is thought that the Mexicans killed every matt thoy fouad, and lubricated the story that they i could not find tho men The following Is the list of men who it is supposed aro dead or ware murdered by the Mexicans : 8. Reid, 8 Clark, M. Liunarl, Farril. J. Cox, Creed Robinson, W i Roto. Calvin Hay. W. Sherds and J Rogers. A part of tho'e, it scorns, who made their escape from Chihuahua, returned in tha course of a few days in safety, and ts much interest is felt by thoir friends to know who are lost and who ara sured, we publish the names ot those who mado their way back to Chihuahua.

I It was supposed,when the English merchants tirst started the project of traus-Atlantic steam navigation, the philosophors of Europe, end Dr Lirdner among the rest, dyuied the feasibility of tho plan; hut the first pas' sago of th* Great Western solved the pioblom. We cau i well recollect this (hip's triumphal entry into the bay of - New York, tsiuce the establishment of this lino, that ol the Cunard has sprung into existence, and English mail learners are radiating from England to all part* of tho woiM, anl j at an American line have not yet crosaod > tho Atlantic, and difficulties appear which prevents the I a-nolo tuck from being at once eubecribed One of these obstacles cannot be a want of wealth among the I merchant) of Now York ; nor can it be a want of enter t prise. To be "rich aa a New York merchant," haa bei cornea proverb; and the word anterpriee, if always , coupled with a New Yorker. 80 the above reasons cuD't , he the cause of absence of an American trans Atlantio moil line. Not only have tho merchants ol New York been engaged in improvemeuta in their city, but expend1 ing their surplus wealth in projectiog railroads, canals, < and constructing wharves, acquoducts, tec These are I the necessary lines to be thrown out to catch and collect > the eurruunuing trade?to conceutrate it at Now York. ; Ail this has now been accomplished, and the surplus ' wealth of the merchants can now be profitably employed I In forwarding the project. It was also thought the steam I packets would supersede sailing vessels; but on the contrary, the sailing ships have increased in number, tizo, and boauty. Tho reason is obvious?the steam vessels have been the means of facilitating commercial information, travelling, and a carta >ntr in their time of arrival. 1 Thie waa a desideratum which wee neceseary to com. I piste tho chain in commercial business, and while the st?am packets performed the occupation for whirn th y , wore peculiarly fitted, ttio sailing vessels having, in fact, a greater corryirg capacity, they wero employed in 1 filling the orders conveyed by steam. Such was the r relative position between the sailing and steam ship. - But the time has now arrived, when the two qualities - should be combined ; and no time hoa been so fail voralde as the preconl. The meana of conveying , agricultural productions, and communicating with the grout volley and livers of the west have been accomu plished, and any one who will cist his eyea over s the map of thie couutry, will at once see the vast im1, ..f ,1... ?r VT?... v..,-l> ... .. J tor fho whole world. It U in a direct lioe of steam communication (rom Rurope to China; and within the lifetime oi the children now living, a direct steam communication from Rurope, via New V'ort to the mouth of the Columbia River to China, is as certain as that tho migration of this country is westward. It would not be chiaierical to assert, that within the neat thirty years, the shores of the Bay of New York will be studded with cities on either side from tho site of the present city to the Narrows. Those who have heretofore contemplated the project of ocean navigation, havo always looked torwar J to government patronage. Vain hope ? I have olway s fouud private enterprise has always ran ahead of governmental efforts. Again, tho failures--! should >ay abortions ?in the navy, IM the revenue marine, has also deterred ii.dividual! subscribing for this stock; and should near sighted men neglect to forward the patriotic and Inudablo object now in contemplation, they will, in a few years hence, have the mortification of seeing hose who engage in this undertaking, outstripping them in waalth and fame. Although the government have not acted liberally, yet it is to he hoped when tho liae is established, their interest will compel them to come forward and grant a liberal protection to the object?not let it pass into the lianie of foreign capitalists tor wunt of that! Iiborality. The British steamers have not fully come up to the expectations of Americans; in the winter they have been frequently withdrawn, leadiug persons to believe they were only calculated for fair weather. The causes of their being withdiawn, are, they are not as substnn tinlly built aa American vessels, and the speed el our lulling | ajkets is better than that of the steameis; and in addition to this, make (to uso a sailot'u phrase) better weather; but there is no doubt, in my miud, American ingenuity and tntarprise will avarcome all the apparent difficulties connected with ocean steam travelling. The great fault in steamships, is their size; they are in fact too small. It would be mora profitable to the owners to build a stesmship ol 3000 tons, than two of lws). The diliorence in consumption of fuel, and iuoreased speed, would, in the large ship, he in the Arst trifling, and in the second greatly over the small vessola. Transatlantic steamships, merely to connect New Vork with Europe ?-*ay Liverpool in England, or any great commercial port in France that ha* sufficient depth of water, should not tie lei* than *000 ton* burthen, provided it i* intended that rtuaon vessels should have the combined qualities o( iteam and sailing pickets; hut thould it be designed that thoy (steamships) should only perloim the business of trammi ting letters, light packages end passengers, 2000 ton* would be a sufficient burthen This alone would give a vary good profit to the Hteam Navigation Company, provided the government makes even the present liTvill allowance for carry ing the mail Believing that the peraeverence, enterprise arid patriotism of the New Yoik merchants will not allow tma noble enterprise to fell, has Induced me to urge these who may not at preseDt bo desirous to engt'go in it, to unite with those who have already built one tmiuUomo ateamibi;i Wishing the enterprise succesi, I am, sir, your ob't scrv't, W.

The ( three men retreated to the other side, and alarmed the 1 , castle. They jumped into the boat and pulled under th bow, where, by meana of the gear, Mr. Hyneon, with four mon and Mr. Parkar, succeeded in boarding her.? Mr. Rogers, with one man. remained in the boat to take charge of the priaoners. Their light had bacome extinguished in the meltt. The alarm bell In the castle was now ringing, and they knew they wera discovered. By threatening the orew of the schooner, they succeeded in procuring coal from tho galley. Mr. H., with one man, took it into the cabin, aud louring to lose his last resort, was about applying some powder to it. The man remarked to him that lie would"blow them up." "I don't care," be anawered, "it ie our only ore chance." He applied the powder, and they were both knocked down by the explosion, and se verely burnt, particularly Mr. H. The desired effect was had, however, and a fire kindled. They now returned to the boat, when some one re- 1 marking that the fire was probably not sufficiently wall ignited, Messrs Hynson, Rogers, snd two mon boarded tier again. Tbey iound the tar bucket with whioh they had provided themselves, on deck, took it to the cabin, daubed aeme tar upon the sails which wore there, and the fire at once spread. The bold was uow to be fired, but there waa no way i in which the flamo could be carried there. The inge- I unity of Mr. Hynson devised an expedient. After in ram trying his cravat, he, with Mr. Rogers, tore their shirts, not the pieces ou fire, aud placing them in the tarbu:aet, earned it in this manner to tne main hu'ch, whore tin- men received it ami took it to the lore hold Here i'.ioy found some hotndi, which they broke up and laid on top of the biasing tar. i-.c.j unuiK Hcr.uui|>u?no<i to rneir sailitactiou, they all got int* ttio boat and shoved off, whan at a dw- ' tance of a hundred and flf'y yards, thoy lalJ on their I oar*, and gave tltreo hearty cheer*- such cheers us success nlono could call forth.
