The United States demand tho riarallol of 'Jfi dnerce* of latitudo from the Oulf of Mexico to the Pacific, tut the dividing line. The United States will pay lift eon millions of dollart in cash for the territory occupied, solemnly engaging not to exact or claim uuy expenses of the war. These expenses are estimated ut about thirteen millions; consequently, the United States consider that they would pay twenty-eight millions of dollars for the territory described. The Unitod States gnarantec that it will novor consent that aay territory or State of Mexioo shall be annexed to the American Union; it equally guarantees the sovereignty of Mexioo, especially her territory south of the parallel of dO degrees. The Unitod btatee will place ton thousand men, infantry and cavalry, upon the boundary line, to prevent smuggling and the incursions of the Indians. The United States engage to adjust all disputes about old claims?we give tho remainder of the sentence in Spanish-?

That our readers may judge what oourse of policy the new administration is likely to pursue, wc give below the reply of Senor Otero, as chairman of the Uouiuiitteu of Congress to receive Santa Anna's oulh to the inaugural of the President. We may add that Benor Otero is a distinguished uioderado. and formerly was understood to be the editor of, or regular contributor to the Hi ilo XIX in its palmiest day*. "The successor of that paper is El Republican!). It U quite the leadiug pa pur in Mexico, and accordingly we give place below to an important article from ita ooluiuns, translated to our hand* aj meutionod yeetcrday. It touches the policy of the now administration, and represents the opinions of the moderadoe. It will be borne in mind that this party has stuadily opposed the administration of (ionise Farias, but equally rebuked the late revolutionary violence which disgraced the city of Mexioo with almost daily bloodshed for sovernl weeks. Wo must refer particularly to Mr. Kendall's letters in another column for lhe latest impressions entertained at Vera (.'rut of the state of affairs at the capital. In the city of Mexico no hope had been indulged of the salvation of Veraf'rnt It was evidently looked upon as lost so soon as Qen. Hcott landed, though it is not so expressly avowed. We have scores of bulletins issued in the city of Vera Crux during the progress of the siege. They do not, to our mind, indicate much hope of a result diflercnt from what followed. We snppoee we may bo allowed to mention that we have read, among other documents touching the siege of Vera Crui, that two msn deserted from our army at Medillln. about the 10th ultimo, and gave the enemy minute information as to Oenerai Scott's ariny and artillery. They gave their names as Wni. M. Lonblin and John Darby, and said they were Irishmen They helonged to the artillery. They were to be sent to the Uovernor for protection, as tney were fearful of being retaken and shot. The despatch giving these particulars is dated the 11th March. The following is the reply of Senor Otero, the President of Lha ooinmiLtee of (lomrrosa before whom lock the oatli of otfico, to Santa Auua's inaugural addross :?

On the 3.1d of Marsh, just one montft after the rout of Buena Vista, at the little village of Guadalupe, where, we believe, the great llidalgo, railed the Washington of Mexico, was murdered and buried, Santa Anua was met by a delegation from Congress, who informed him of the necessity of his assuming the Presidency at the capital. The reader will bear in mind tbat Santa Anna was elected President of Mexico some months ago. but by a clause in tbo Mexioau Constitution, the President, when at the head of the urmy, cesses to discbarge the oivil powers and duties of the office, and tho VicePresidout becomes President ad interim. But domes Karias. the Viee-Prosident, bad got into a snarl witb bis old enemies,the church party?affairs were in the greatest confusion, and Congress and the friends of order became warmly desirous that Santa Anta would enter upon the discharge of bis duties ns acting President. Accordingly, be took tho oath of ofHce on tho -13d, at Gaudalupc. and on the evening of the same day entered the capital witb the greatest pomp and display. A le drum was chaunted on tbo occasion of bis arrival. In the inagnitlcent cathedral which graces the capital, and a general holiday and snuspenslou of busiuesH manifested the exceeding joy of the people.

MEXICAN AKFAIHS. Vex a Cans, April 1, 1817. Although the result is not yot known, it is generally conceded that the expedition to Alvarado will not meet with any enemy. Agents havo arrived here trout that place, this is most certain; and they say that the armed force there all tied en the capture of Vera Crus being known. Krom the direction of tho city of Mexico we have a variety of rumors. All agree that Santa Anna has reached the eapitul, hut the acoonnts conflict us to his present position mud prospects. One report lias it, that with a miserahlo remnant of his army he hns joined the clergy, and is making headway against the stubborn domes Karias Another and later report is to the effect that Uunta Anna, .finding tho olergy determined upon holding on to their rich property entire, and of making overtures of peace to the United States, ut once joined Karlus, and was now bent upon seizing every penny belonging to the priesthood to carry on the war against the " usurping barhariuns of the North.'1 One thing is certain?all was anarchy aud confusion at the city of Mexico live days since, and guus und bloodshed were tho order of both day and night. Purtv was arrayed against party, faction against faction?all were by the ears, anil tbcro was neither head, tail nor body to the Government. The entire population, like the Isliuiaclitas, those " grousers " of old, wore fighting and quarrelling?each man's hand was turned against his ueighbor.

More unprlni-l plod men have never existed; for. too cowardly to tight and win booty of thoir enemies, they content themselves with plundering their own people. Not one in ten of them has s spark of that patriotism which aeoketh its country's good, all their vaunting te tho contrary, and this extensive faction the friend* of poanc have to contend wflh. The latter party is composed of the clergy, anxious to preserve the Immense wealth and influence they have accumulated by fraud and humbug; the property holders, who fret at seeing their estates despoiled, and who are anxious to collect their rents; to tlieee must be added a few honest, well informed men, conscious of their utter Inability to contend with the American arms, and desirous of seeing an cud put to a war which brings nothing to their eountry hut additional debt and disgrace Which of three parties is to succeed in the end remaius to l>e seen. We hear dreadful tales of tho atrocities committed by the prisoners who laid down their arms outside the city on the JUth ult.. and who were then turned loose upon the eountry on their parole, it is said they have scattsreil in every direction, and are plundering the poor and defenceless inhabitants of the interior without hindrance and without remorse.

Taylor, with May's dragoons, Bragg'* battery and a portion of the Kentucky cavalry?about 700 in all?wu* on his return toward* Monterey, when he heard that he wu within two days' march of I'rrsa. He immediately gave pursuit, and linally with his advanced guard encountered the rear guard of Gen. Urrea. An action ensued, and the rumor goes on to say that It had lasted seven hours, when a courier left, whom Oen. Taylor sent back to hasten up the main body of his little command, and then to push on to Col. Curtis and order up hi* regiment. The courier is said to have reported that a couple of hour* mere fighting would settle the business, as Taylor was making great havoc amongst the Mexicans. We give theso rumors because they were circulating freely on the Rio Grande and among the Mexicans, who believed them. On this aeoount, many discreet Americans think an action has taksn place, and of course, if it be so. Gen. Tnylor has whipped the Mexicans. There ie no reasonable doubt of that we presume. But we like to have better authority tiian flying Mexican ru mors ou which to base statement* of the success of our arms We make the followiug extracts from the Flae of the 31*t nit:? To the politeness of an officer of the army here we are ltnieoicd ror the perusal of a latter from an officer In camp at Buena Vista, dated 12th lust.

The humanity of such au act is beyond all praise. Great as is the glory which Gen Taylor has acquired by a succession of splendid victories over the Mexicans, all be has gained In this way sinks luto insignificance compared with the humanity which he has always shown to a fall on enemy.
