era! of the t'ulted States at W*?hlnjrton. from one of th most trust-worthy gentleman of the arroy MirtMuiu. March 44. ' A letter from ? Mexican at Tula, dated the 11th Instant to a Mexican of thla place. state* that Santa Anna with om< division of his army. arrived at Hon Luis on the Tth ; tlio retreat waa disastrous to the last decree, far exceeding that which took place after the battle* of thcHth and !>th of May last; the soldiers absolutely flght'ng for a luoutliful of bread He suyathat the Mexican loss is at least 4000 lu killed ami wounded, and the army completely routed and dispirited The first acting battalion was annihilated ; the colonel commanding (Col Bcrra) w is killed and all the other officers either killed or wounded His letter gircn the name* of many officers killed and wounded In addition to those given by Santa Anna. ' I learn from various sources that Paymaster Dlx played quite a conspicuous and useful part In tho action of ftueua Vista " Next follows the capture of tho strongest commercial town and the key to Mexico?Vera (. ru* and the castle of Han Juan do UltSa This Oibraltar of the western contlneut. which was considered by the proud Mexicans as Impregnable. particularly as It has boon strongly fortified since it was taken by the French. has been compelled to capitulate unconditionally. after a few hours' bombardment, before two-thirds of the guns and bombs which had been aselgued to the siege had arrived In the camp Not only has this advantage been gained by our arms at that point, but In every nffulr near Vera Crux the Mexl can troops have been beaten and dissipated by a very Inferior force, like clialT before the wind Oen Scott haft no doubt, occupied Alvarado. to profit by Ita supplies of mules and borne*: end I*, probably, by tnla time, on his inarch to the table lnnds The utmost consternation has spread Itself over Mexico Their troops arc on tbe retreat No serious opposition is expected to be made at tbe National bridge, strong as its position naturally Is. aud capable of the strongest artificial defences; nor at Jalapa; and Indeed we can scarcely anticipate any very serious resistance until he arrives at the capital ltaalf. and become* master of tbe ''balls of tbe Montuzuuna." And again, we uuw understand that Chihuahua, the capital of an iuiportaut province, lias capitulated to a very luferior force in point of numbers both of troops ami of artillery. Thus beaten at uvory point by Inferior forces, with 4.000 of their best troops lost at Bueua Vista, and with 4.000 more put Aor* He combat by a parole of honor; with thalr armies either dissipated or flying before our victorious eagles, how can Mexico continue tbe war with any prospect of success ' Hit guerilla system is gone. Her oapital wiii probably be In our possession, or at least her tabic lands will be occupied so as to |>crmit our troops to advance with additional reinforcements to the capital. If it should be fonnd necessary to take or temporarily retain it. IVt understand thai reinforcemente art about Is 4* thrown into both our armies; and. if Mexico thould continue knotted, blind to her true intereiti, infatuated by her ridiruloue pride we mutt put forth our powerful arms in a more tigorout proeteulion of the war. We will not say what will becomo of Santa Anna, stripped of bis army We will not say what will become of tbe wealth and influence of the clergy ; but of one thing we are fully assured, that we shall no longer bear of the siily rhodomontadcof the Mexicans?of Santa Anna's His boost about gathering laurels on the banks of the Sabine; and unless providence has maddened thoee whom it Is determined to destroy, we shall no longer bear of the Idle demand being made, that our troo|? shall evacuate the soil of Mexico before she consents to treat of pence. If any reliance can be placed upon the accounts which we have received from Mexico, through tbe New Orleans Picayune, there is one Item of intelligence which wo are pleased to bear, viz : that there is still a government in Mexico who may treat with us ?nay, that Santa Anna is there, probably prepared, with the concurrence of tbe clergy, to assume the dictatorship. But he can scarcely hold it long, if he continues to be stripped of the charm of military renown, which has hitherto brightened his wrest. Or how long can he maintain it, if he eontinucs to deny peace to his couutry 1 ARMY INTELLIGENCE. Lieut. Dlvver. of the 3d regiment U. S dragoons, has opened a recruiting station at Albany.

I The Philosophy of the ElectloiwState of Partlea?'The Position and Strength of the Radicals, There has been a great deal said by soma of the ultra organs of the whig party, and one or two itmi-iie democratic papers, ubout the^strength of the national reform party in this city, and the iufliu-nf** <it" fliui vote unon 11 ni late election. The organ of the votc-yourself-a-farm party ha* asserted that the election of Mr. Brady was partly produced by the votes of that party, and that these votes were obtained by the letter received, purporting to have been written bv that gentleman, upon the eve of the contest. We think we are prepared to show, and prove by official documents, that the election of Mr. Brady was brought about by other causes, and that the vote of the nulionul reformers was a mere bagatelle. More than ono-hnll' of the whig majority wus produced by u combination in the eleventh ward, between the whigs und the native Americans, by virtue of which the strength of the native American party was given to Mr. Brady, upon condition that the whigs voted for the native American Aldermau. The annexed tables exhibit the result of this compromise :? Oimcul Vtr?Cut ton Nxtitk Amkricxs Mooi Al dsrms1. IVardi.

It is possible sum ? of the natives of tU at ward did not vote for either of the other candidates, but there is no doubt that most of them voted for Brady. We now come to the national reform vote, the official returns of which were as annexed : ? OrnciAL Voti caat roa National flcroRM Matos and iiMun, IVardt.

This does not look much like the whign being indebted to the national reformers for the election of their mayor. | The comparative strength of tho whig and j democratic parties, at the roeent election, is i pretty clearly exhibited in the vote of Joseph R. Taylor, the whig candidate for Alms House , Commissioner, and J. Sherman Brownell, the I democratic randidate|for Mayor. Mr. Brady, 1 as we have shown above, was indebted to the na! live American party to a great extent, and to a limited extent to the influence of his name among the Irish. The national reform party was a mighty small concern in the matter; and ths idaa of their supposing themselves strong enough to hold the balance of power between the two great parties, a ilppitUtili- ri#?h nnrl rirl irulniiM I The New* from Mexico?It* Character and Importance. i We yesterday received im;>ortnnt intelligence from three divisions of our army, Herving in Mexico. The adviccti from Santa Fc are to February 10th. They contain detail* of the horrible massacre at Taos, and subsequent battle*. The ilutea from El Pa**o are to January 29th. i Major Clarke had arrived with the artillery.? I Colonel l>onit>han was hastening preparations to I advance on Chihuahua. He had heurd of Gene! rul Wool's leaving for Saltillo. Capt. Mitchell's company had puehed 21 days advauce on the maiu line, which wan expected to move on the 6th of February. Capt. Doniphan was confident of taking Chihuahua. He reported 5000 Mexicans there, but this wus, doubtless, an exaggeration, as no Mexican supplies or reinforcements I could be expected nearer than from Durango. I We give tiiis, because it confirms the iutellil gence received by the way of the city of Mexico ' and Tanipico. | Colonel l'rice, with three hundred men 1 and four howitzers, had udvanced to Puebla, i in New Mexico, where the Mexican* had fortij ficd two strong large houses and a church. On | the 31st Janunry, he attacked them. At the first charge of the dragoons and infantry, seven J Americans were killed and several wounded. Cupt. Iturguin was fatally shot in the lungs as he was gallantly lending the rompnny to the attack. The church and houses were stormed. The Mexican* retired, and the dragoons pursued, killed l.V) or 200, and a complete victory achieved. Total American loss, 12 killed, and 30 wounded. The steamship Alabama arrived at New Orleans from Vera f ruz on the 2d. General Quitman, with his division, had proceeded to the capture of Ahorndo. Com. Perry, with the Mississippi, two sloops of war and the musqnito tleet, were to operate with him. Gen. Twiggs' command left on the 31st ult. forPuente Nacional. Gsn. Worth was actipg Governor of Vera Cruz ; he w as to follow on the 5th inst. for the same destination. The accounts from Gen. Taylor state that be had returned to Salnllo, after a fruitless pnrsuit of Urreo, though he was at one time neor bim in the \ tcinity of Marin. Gen. Tavlor was pushing forward large supplies towards Ran Luis Potoai, in advance of his own march. This is the intelligence from the three points of our arrny in brief. Tb? details, together with some important news from the city of Wciico, and the detailed official account of - inu Anna of the battle of Btiena Vista, are to >e found on ths outside of this day'* Htrald. It appears by the advices from the city of Mexico that t- inta \nn* reached tnnt city on the 2lth.

No intelligence had reached the capital of the capitulation of Vera Cruz and Sun Juan de Ulua, and every effort was making to prosecute the war against the United States. According to Santa Anna's detailed official despatch of the battle of Bucna Vista, he still udhcred to the declaration previously made, that negcciation would not be entered into until every American soldier was withdrawn from Mexican territory. It may be that the surrender of Vera Cruz and Ulua will change the mind of the Mexican. Revolutionary Blood at Vera Cruz ? You'no Allen McLank.?Among the many feats of personal bravery, performed by our army in Mexico, tbo following one of Midshipman Allen McLane should immortalize its gallant author. During the siege of Vera Cruz, be was attached 10 cupt. .yuiick, communucr 01 one 01 me nuvui batteries. In the heat of the engagement, Capt. Aulick wished some brushwood, in front of him, which obstructed the view of a Mexican battery, removed. It was on an uncovered spot, and shot and shells were rained in a perfect deluge upon it. Still the removal of the obstruction was of vital importance, and he called for volunteers to cut it away. In an instunt young MoLane leaped over the embrasures, tollowed by two seamen, and advanced boldly on the brushwood. In a few minutes their rapid and steady strokes were heard, as they hewed away, atnid the bursting shells and falling bulls, that threw up the sand around them. At length, a clear und open range was mudc to the battery, and McLune and his comrades leaped, unhurt, within the embrasure. It was nobly, gallantly done. It was sufficiently dangerous for a man to show his head above thft works, without standing in the open road, a fair mark for the guns. Young McLane is the son of the Hon. Louis McLaue, and grandson of Col. Allen McLane, who served so bravely in our revolutionary war. He has proved himself worthy of tho stock from wkjcb he is descended.

Brown & Bell's Fleet at Vera Ckuz.?The following letter will be read with pleasure by our citizens Orr Sscaincios, Maroh 38,1947. I forget the date of my last letter, but the day after I sent It a steamer appeared In the ofllng. carrying a rod broad pendant; we soon made her out to be the Mississippi. and took It for granted the gallant Perry was in her. That afternoon, a French bark anchored under the Castle, got underweigh and stood out. at the same time a small man-of-war steamer, the Hunter pursued the bark, hove her to, put an officer on board, and stood bark towards the anchorage. It had now grown dark, and a very severe, although short norther, began to blow. We saw nothing of the Hunter or bark until morning, when both were discovered hard aud fast on Tajats reef, with signals of distress flying, and evidently going to pieces. 1 be Mississippi went out and brought off the people, but the vessels aro both lost. That morning Commodore Conner made his Inst signal?" Commodore I'erry commands the squadron." Bell and Brown's crafts, (the lnusquito Scot) which anchored close to inch other, began to smell powder?the men waved their caps, and the officers eyed each other with evident satisfaction. Wo know that I'erry would flght anything, aud felt assured of a brush with the Castle. The Ohio arrived the next day. and we all felt proud to see this thing of life walk the w aters. On the ovouing of the 33d General Scott having planted hie mortars, summoned the city to surrender, which was politely rejected. His hattcrios thenopen* r. and Bell and Brown went in and took a position ju it within range of the long guns of thn Castle, butfrc n which they could throw their shells into the city. >o you understand what I mean by Bell and Brown ?

Bell and Brown then went In and took a ruking position, on the evening of the 'JJud. and tired awuy until It was quite dark, doing great damage to the poor devoted town. Whan we stopped firing, ( apt Tatnall. who commanded the expedition, got all tho captains on board hie vessel, (the Spitfire.i and they concluded to staud up boldly the next morning lu front of the town, and draw the tire of the C astle.

'1 he gallant sailor, however, let us alone nntU be pereclved the fun was getting too hot, he then hoisted the recall, hut tbs signal would not be seen for some time, (some of us are short-sighted) and when It was answered. It was obeyed slowly?very very slowly. At length I'erry became impatient, anil sent his Klag Captain to bring us off. saying those fellows will never come nut ol the tire unless they are forced.

The judicial <1 strict* have come to be the great feature of legislative dispute and objurgntion, and passitmgle discussion. A matter whicb ought nut to occupy the attention of thu legislature two entire days, hns been agl tatud several weeks by private committees, until at length j the pride of party and the power of gold have put formidable difficulties lu the way of the adjustment of Ihli important question. Verily It Is a pity that virtue aud sagacity should not be prominent principles In the human character; through the absence of these attributes, how many woful knells of and harmony huve been rung in Christendom. The Seuate, this morning, received a message from tho House, conveying the information that the House "insists" upon thu ultimatum for the division of the Statu Into judicial districts which I sunt you yesterday. The House insisted upon this ultimatum last cveuiug, by a vote of 01 to 34. Mr. Johnson, tho chairman of the last Seuate Conference Committee upon this question, immediately rose, upon thu announcement of the mes-ago from the House, aud moved that the Senate ' adhoro'' to the Senate bill. Mr. Joacs moved to umendthe motion; hu moved that the Senate do " Insist" to the bill. Mr. Kolsom said It would bo an act of al<surdlty, not to say of madness, to rofuse to organtso those districts ' What, sir! shall wo have no courts? Shall wo have nothing to regulate socioty ? Already c< rtaln portions of the State, eveu with courts in cxisionoe, are cursed by auarchy ; and, if the proitositiuti of the Senator from Delaware (Mr. Johnson) is acceded to. the entire State will be subjected to like evils. Sir, 1 go for compromise ; I go for concession ou both sides. I believe we are approaching au era when the prcseut state of parties will be lost sight of; aud when we see old " Knugli and Heady" a candidate for the ('residency, I hope the whole people will sustain hint. Sir, I hope to sue anethcr com lUlllce 01 CKUIorenoe appoinivu m VIM ci nil muioum mi* judtmuut of this question ; ] am. therefore, opposed to the motion of the Senator from Delaware, (Mr. Johnson,) and I will rote against it. Mr. Komom having sot down, Mr. Ira Harris got the floor of the Heuate. and uttared several prurient common-places, presumed to he in vindication of the House bill and the refinement of the House committee Sir. (said Mr. II.,1 it is nothing more than political considerations which actuate those gentlemen, (the democrats of tho Senate Conference Committee.) Now, sir, let this subject be considered irrespective of parly considerations ; any candid man would consent to divide the districts equally between the purties And what is proposed by tlio Huunte hill ? It proposes to give the party to which I am attached, only two of the districts ; and here we have a committee of conference, pertinaciously Insisting upon having six of the districts Now I submit that no Mcualor can be justified before the tribunal of his own conscience, in adhering to an arrangement so entirely illiberal. 1 warn Senators, that the tribunal of public opinion will not acquit them, under the miserable plea that the compactness of the districts will not be preserved by the House bill There ia no way by which this duty can be accomplished, except by the present Legislature ; there Is nothing involved in the question, but whether the fourth district shall be wb'g or democrat.c; and now, I hope Senators will reflect before tlicy insist upon this bill : Mr. lUsiow said the Senator last up (Harris) has shown that the whole aim ot his colleagues is to secure half the judicial districts; tins not the .Senator shown that he is solely governed by political oouslderations.'? Nothing else under heaven influences his action! Sir we have no scruples In putting ths constitution undei our feet if we avow such sentiments ! I say let us adhere and there is an end of It, the people will reach the proper motives of every one of us, and i will tin lest Sir. does not that Senator know that if one district Is changed, all the others must be cbangsd in order to nri.aurrn tha rat In of ononis! ion: sir. t-aifl the SellUlO with emphasis.) I say udbne aud 1st'* pee what the rami! will bp. Mr. Jon said he hoped the Senate wonld not adhere because such un art would preclude all coinprom'e ; under 11 rule of the Senate the bill would be loet, if tb'-y adhere; he hoped new cominitteea of conference would he appointed, aud he had no doubt that committee* ot ihe right calibre oould elfevt a compromise Mr J. proceeded to analyse the metal of which th< conference committees hitherto appointed weie compos ed, aud he arrived ut a complaisant conclusion, that i hey were oouipouud* which could not bo mixed by auy ort of possibility; he hoped, therefore, that coinniilluvof <1 fferent moral and physical characteristic* would be appointed. . cssr*.
