I From the Washington Union, April 1 ] e have never published a number of the Urtton, that was fraught with more interesting papers than the present. Independently of the important letter of the President, and the admirable report ?f the Secretary of the Treasury, in re p'y, upon .he duties to be levied on imports into 'he ports of Mexico, we lay before our readers the very interesting despatches from Gen- Taylor, and a letter irom Commodore Conner, con. oerning the landing of our troops at Vera Oruz. The two sets of despatches were brought by the southern steamboat this evening. The despatches from General Taylor were brought to the Secretary of War by Mr. Crittenden, a volunteer aid of General Taylor. The Commodore's letter came te the Secretary of the Navy through the mail from New Orleans. Gen. Taylor's letters confirm the brilliant victory whloh was won by our arms at Buena Vista. The loss of the enemy by battle is less than was originally reported, though it is heavy indeed. Our own loss is considerably less, though it comprises ouieof the best and bravest men of our glorious army,made up, as it was, mostly of volunteers, cooperating with some of the finest regular troops in the world. But the loss of the Mexican army by starvation, desertion and disorganization is still more striking General Taylor's three despatches are respectively dated February 34th, 25th, and March 1st. They state, in the general's usually laconic, modest, but expressive terms, the beginning, end, and some of the most important results of this remarkable battle. The most important of these results is tho great loss of the enemy? their retreat, and partial, perhaps,total dissolution ?their latal disorganization?their utter incapacity to harass at this time our own troops, who have returned to their original position at Agua Nueva Gen. Taylor has sent a corps farther to harass him en the retreat, and to seize his supplies. The general further proposes to return to Monterey, and re-open the communication between that town and tho Kin Grande Tne panic of the Mexican marauders is calculated of itself almost to effect this obj<ctin a few days. We cannot but again congratulate our country on this brilliant victory. We subjoin a list of the killed und wounded of our army. The death of those brave men affects every American heart with the keenest sympathy. It is the cypress interwoven wi ll nic iquici. If we turn our eyes further the south, bright oehievernents await us, to heighten the glory of our country. We lay before our readers the only despatch trom Commodore Conner, which relates to tlie (tebarkation of our troops at Vera Cruz Neverwas any lending more happily efTeoted-with C er weather, and under more auspicious circumstances. Another and a later letter is received from the commodore; but it touches other topiss. The Secretary has received another letter trom a distinguished officer of the navy, under date of the 18th March ; and he items to epcnk of the s mrrtmder of the city and cattle at eertain in a few daye We shall wait for further accounts tiom ine army mid squadron ot Vera Cruz with the greatest impatience ; and hope that many days will not elapse before wo shall have the pleasure of cot\pr* dilating our country upon the pomttion of one of the th ongett military potte on the globe?the key of Mexico? which opens tut gate of the approach to the. cnpilal. otnr? writing the above, we understand that Mr. Crittenden left General Taylor, with his army, at Agua Nueva on the 2d March, at d h'ought the despatches along the usual route trom Mont rey to Camsrgo, under the escort of about 250 troops,commanded by Major Geddings, having along a train of some 180 empty wagons. As they approached Cerralvo, a small party was sent in to provide forage, tScc , when the enemy, under Urrea, were discovered, about 1,560 strong. Our troops were immediately placed on the defensive, and rect ved the auault of the tuverior numbert with the resolution of men determined to cut their w<iy through. They uere repulsed with a lust of about thirty men, while we lost about half the number. A nurl of our baggage train wasdestroyed, (40 or 50 of the wagons.) when the gallant Urieamndo his retreat in the direction of the Tula pass. Tne teamsters were unwilling to proceed without a stronger escort, and Mr. Crittenden was detained five or six days at Cerralvo, when Colonel Curtis arrived from Cam&rgo with a large body ot troops He was too late to overtak?U rrea, who had probably commenced his retreat as soon at he heard of Santa Anna's discomfiture. Colonel Curtis proceeded to Monterey, and the escort and train came on to Camargo, the enemy having fled as rapidly as possible, and tins may be the last that we tnall hear of them on 'his side ot Tula and San Luia for some time. We weie amused with an anacdote about the ammunition wagon, which, by some accidenr, was cut cfT with the others near Cerralvo. It was das'royed, as most of the others were, by fire, and when the explosion unexpectedly took place, killing tome, wounding others, and alarming all, it was regarded as a '"Yankee trick," and some wag said our wagons might, henceforth, si roll through the land unharmed, aaeach would uo irnarueu ait some combustible machine, desi yned to ensnare the Mexicans The Despatches of General Taylor.

I have the honor to report that tho troops of my ; command occupied their original camp at this place oi j the '17th of February, the last of the Mexican army leav ' ing the morning of that day in the direction of San Luis { It is ascertained that the enemy is ii< lull retreat, and in i very disorganized condition; the men deserting and dyinf of starvation in great numbers I despatch a commnm this day as far as Encarnation to barrass his rear, am secure whntevor military supplies may be found there. From the statement of Mexican officers, particularly of the medical atafl' left to succor the wounded, then aeems no douht that their loss in the recent action ii moderately estimated at 1 600, and may reach 3000 men 1 killed ana wounded; besides 3000 or 3000 deserters Many officers of rauk were lost 1 onciose a list oi thi 1 names of our own killed end wounded, made as com plete as practicable at this time. One regiment (Ken , tuckv cavalry) is not included, its return not being ren tiered. The enemy had fully reckoned upon our total rout and had made arrangements to intercept our retreat, anc : cut off the army, stationing for that purpoao, corps of ca ! valry. net only immediately in our reur, but even belou Monterey. 1 regret to report that they succeeded ntui | the village of Maria in destroying a train uf supplies and kilkng a considerable number of the escort an< team stars. Col. Moigan, 3d Ohio regiment, on bismarcl from Cerralvo to Monterey, was infested by the Maxicai ; cavalry, with wjiich he had several rencontres, bnt final lv dispersed them with small loss on bis own part. Capt Graham, A <4 M.. volunteer service, was mortally ; wounded in one of these effsira 1 have no doubt that thi \ defeat of the main army at Buena Vista will secure oui I line of communication from further interruption, but still propose in a few days to change my head-quarters t< Monterey, with a view to make such further arrange mints as may be necessaiy in that quarter. The dispositions made to harrass our rear, viudicati the policy and necessity of defending a position in frou of 8<sltillo, where a defeat has thrown the enemy fu back into the interior. No result so decisive could havi been obtained by holding Monterey, and our commuiii oations would have been constantly in jeopardy. I am, sir, vory respectfully, your obedioat servant, Z.

' v Sir: Tho government of Mexico having repeat- ? ully rejected the friendly overtures of the United 8 States to open negotiations with a view to the re- '' itoralion of peace, sound policy and ajust regard c o the interests of our own country, require that he enemy should be made, as far as practicable, c 0 bear tho expenses of a war, of which they are ti he authors, and wtrch they obstinately persist in h irotracting. c It is the right of the conqueror to levy contrl- J* mtions tipon the enemy, in their seaports, towns, b >r provinces, which may be in his military pos- ^ lession by conquest, and to apply the same to de- ? ray the expenses of the war. The- conqueror u jo'sesses the right also to establish a temporary n nilitary government over such seaports, towns, a >r provinces, and to prescribe the conditions and " estrictions upon which commerce with such !' duces may ho permitted. He may, in his di?- ^ tretion, exclude all trade; or admit it without c imitation or restriction, or impose terms, the n ibservance of which wil be tho condition of carry- t: ng it on. One of these conditions may be the ij tayment of a prescribed rate of duties on tonnage t: tod imports. jj In the exercise of these unquestioned rights of var, 1 have, ori full consideration, determined to irder that all the ports or places in Mexico which t low ate, or hereafter may be, in the actuul s losses-ion of our land and naval forces by con- c pies', shall be opened, while our military oc- I' upation mav continue, to ihe commerce of all 1 leutral nations,as well as our own, in articles not ? iontrabatid of wai, upon the payment of pre- 0 Oribed rates of duties, which will bo made known f ir.d enforced by our military and t;aval com- * nanders. 1 V.'hile the adoption of this policy will bo to impose 8 1 burden on the enemy, and at the same time to ? lepuve them ol tho revenue to ho derived from ? tad *, at such ports or places, as well as to secure n t to ourselves, whereby the expenses of the war . i -.K ? 1 -.- -i - * u.iy irouiuuiiouru?nju^i in me general U nterest ofcomuieicts ai.d the obvious advantages it uniformity in the exercise of these belligetent f ighis, requires that well-considered regulation* h i;d restrictions should be prepared for the gui- * lance of those who may bo charged with carrying ? t into effect. , You are, therefore, instructed to examine tho i existing Mexican tariff of duties, and re ort to me r l schedule ol articles of trade, to be admitted at i uah ports or pluces as may at any time b9 in our 1 nilita-y possession, with such rates of duties on 1 hem, and ulso on tonnage, as will be liktlv to , rroduce the greatest amount of revenue.

Polk. & Washington, March 23,1847. h Tbcaiurt D*r*i?TMrsT, March ?0, 1847. 1 Hm : Your instructions of tho 'J3d instant have been 0 eceived by this depirtment, and, in conformity thereto, c present you herewith, for your consideration, a scale it duties proiioied to be collected as a military contribu- ' ion during tho war, in the potts of Mexico, in posseeaion J if our nrmy or nuvy by conquest, with regulations for j] he ascertainment and collection of such dudei, together j.1 villi the reasona which appear to mo to recommend their " idoption. J It is clear that we must either adopt our own tariff, or * hat of Mexico, or establish anew ayilem of duties. Our } iwnUiriU could not ba adonted, because the Mexican 1 xnorts and import* are se different from our own. that ' lilf jrent ratea of duties aro indispensable in order to col- * ect the lirgest revenue. Thus, upon many articlis * iroduced in great abundance here, duties must be im- 1 >osed at the lowest rate in order to collect any revenue , ' vherem, many of the same articles are not produced io ' lexico, or to a very inconsiderable extent, and would 1 berefore bear there a much higher duty for revenuo. A 1 reet change is also rendered necessary by the proposed 1 xoction of duties on ell imports to any Mcxioan port in " ur possession, from any other .Mexican port occupied ? y tis ia the same manner This measure would largely 0 lcrease tho revenue which we might collect. It Is re- . ommendod, however. for reasons of obvious safety, that d its Mexican coastwise trade should be confined to our wn vessels, as well as the interior trade, ebove any port f entiy in our possession, but that, in all other respects, no ports of Mexico held by us should be freely opened t the rale ol duties herein recommended to the vess. is nd commerce of all tbo world. The ad valorem system f duties adopted by us, altbougb by far the most just id equitable, yet lequires an appraisement to secertaiu ae ecuiel value of every article. This demands great lercantiie skill, knowledge, end experience, and thereire, lor the want of skilful appraisers?a class ot officers rholly unknown in Mexico -could not at once be put ato successful operation there. If, also, as proposed, leie duties are to bo ascertained und collected as a liliUry contribution through the efficers ef our army nd navy, those brave men could more easily perform ItiV't any other duty than that ef estimating tl-.e value f every description ol goods, wares, end merchandise The system of specific duties already prevails in Mexi. ?, aod may be put by us in'.o immediate operation; sod ', as is conceded, specific duties should be more burden; ims upon the people of Mexico, the more onerous the peration of these duties upon tbem, the sooner is it like r that they will force their rail nary rulers te agree te a saoe. It is certain that* mild and forbearing system of ' srfera, collecting no duties In their porta in our poaieion on the Oulf, and levying no contributioi a, whilst iir armies purohaae supplies from them at high prices, y rendering the war a benefit to th* people of Mesico ither tban an injury, ha* not hastened the conclusion of peace. It may be, however, that specific duties, onerus as they ere, and heavy contributions, accompanied 1 a vigorous prosecution of the wsr, may mote speedily isnro that peace which we have felled to obtain frim agnanitnons forbearance, from brilliant viotories, or om proffered negotiation The dutiea, however, whilst ey may be ?i<eciflc. end therefore more oneroue, then [ I viIorem ?utiee, ahould not be ej high ? to defeat v ivenue. ^ It ia impoaeible to adopt aa a baala the tariff of Mexico, , rom?e the dutiea are extravagantly hlgo, defeating im- <] triation. enmmeroa, and revenue, anl producing tunu- ti lerabla f.-auda and tmuggling There are alaoaixty ar- n cle?, the importation 01 which into Mexico ia at:ictly ? rohit'ited by their tariff, embracing moat of the neeaa- ? iriea ot life, and far the greater portion of our prodncta g ad fahi ica. v c Among the aixty prohibited artielea are augar, rice, ti otton, boota, and halt boota. coffee, naila ot ali kinda, ti ether of moat kinda, flour, cotton yarn and tkread, aoap n T all kinda, common earthenwara, lard, molaiaaa, tirn ar of all kinda, aaddlea of all kinda, ooerae woollen r loth clothe lor cloaka. ready made clothing ol all kinda, t( lit, tobaoco of all kinda, cotton gooda or teaturea, chief- tj r ?uch aa are made by ouraelaree, pork, freeh or aalted, i| noked or cornad, woollen or cotton bUnketa or counter- a anea, ahoea and alippera, whent, and grain of all kinda. * uch ia a liet of but a part of the artielea whoee importa- ti on ia prohibited by the Mexican tariff Theae prohlbi- | oni ahould not ha permitted to cantlnue, becauaa tbay 3 tclude most of our prod icts and fabrioi.tr d prevent ra collection at revenue.

This nuasure, whilst it would greatly increase c ir revenue from these duties, and facilitate communi- j] tiou hetwaan our forces upon the eastern and western ast of Mexico, would probably lead, at the conclusion a peace, to results of incalculable importance to our b vn commerce and to that ot all the world. c In tha maaiitiuie, the Mexican government monopoly tobacco, from which a considerable revenue is re- ' izrd by Mexico, together with the culture there, a bich yields that revenue, should be abolished, so as to minish the resources of that government and augment , ir own. hv collecting the dutv u.iou till the imported : bicco.

Neither our own nor foreign fl rerchatits ure required to seud any goods to Mexico, nd, ii they do so v luntarily, it will be because they can g rake a profit upon the importation lli-re, and tne re- , are they will huve no right to complain of the duties . avied in the ports of Mexico, upon the consumers of | hose goods, the people of Mexico. The whole money i j ollected would inure to the benefit of our own governncntaud people, to sustain the war, and to prevent, to hat extent, now loans and increased taxation.

In the meantime, it is not just that Mexico, by her oh- I itinate persistuuce in this contest, should compel us to j ivertbrow our own financial policy, and arreat this great I latien in her high and prospeious carter. To re-impose 1 ligh dut es, would he alike injurious te ourselves and to ill neutral powers, and, unless demanded by a stern ne:essity, uugwnerous to those enlightened nations which lave adopted, coritt mporaueonsly with as, a more liberal commercial policy, ihe system you now piopose, of mposing the burden us far as practicable upon our ei-omes, the people of Mexico, end not upon ourselves or I ipon friendly ration,* appeals to be most juat In itsilf, j tnd is further recommended as the only policy which ; s likely to hasten the conclusion of a just and honorable ?eace. j A tonnage duty on all vessels, whether our own, or of leutral powers, of one dollar per ton, which is greatly I ess than that imposed by .Mexico, is recommended in | ieu ol all port d'ltiee and charges.

'besa duties can only be collected as a military contibution, through the agency of our brave officers of lis army and navy, who will, no doubt, cheerfully and aithfully collect and keep these moneys, and ccount for them, not to the tieaaury, but to be Secretaries of War or of the Navy respectvely. It is reeommsnded that these duties be peiormed by tbe commandant of the post, whether naval or niliury, sided by the pay mastor, or purser, or other offi- 1 er, the account* of each being countersigned t.y the Xlior as a check ui>ou mistakes or eiror, in the sans | manner a* i* now tlio rase with the collector or naval iHicer of our several principal ports, which has inticluced to much order and accuracy into our system.
