There was the Mime doubt in the army us to whether there would be anymore lighting that na? always prevailed amongst our tio >p.i after a battle with the euctny. The remaining divisions wero to proceed rapidly iu the direction of the city of .Mexico. Although the opiuion wus ijuitecurrent at Vera Cruz that the Mexicans would not make a stand betweeu that city and the capital, yet there were some who regarded future uollisloun us certain. Amongst these was Col. Kluney, who had receutly been as far into thu interior as Mango dc Clava", Santa Anna's haclendu. It nit- U1BI lUI'll Y UUUtTlllKlU HI t ITU V-TUZ U1HI IUU Puuutu Nacioual bail been abandoned. This was the point at wblcb the first resistance to tbe march of the American forces uponthu city of Mexico would be made; but though tbe defence of this point was given up. It wan not certain that tbe progress of our army into tbe Juterlor would not bo disputed ut others. Indued, it was u-'Scried tbut tbe forces destined to defend tbe National Iirldgu (i'ueute Nacioual) bud fallen back a few leagues in tbe direction of Jalitpa, to u stronger position, where preparations were being made for a stout defence An intelligent utbucr. just from Vera Crur.. tbiukslt quite probable that a battle may have occurred about tbe 14tb iustaut. Humors from tbe city of Mexico represented Santa Auna as mow intently bsut upon war than ever. Tbe reports arc not tbe best authority, in so far us the wishes of Santa Auus are concerned; but they indicate tbe tuuiper of the public luiud, whicb Is as good au iudex of bis purposes as any other. Our correspondence gives all thu news astir at Vera Cru/. at tb? time of the departure of tbe Ions.

" And I hare to instruct you to take every opportunity of saving how grateful her Majesty's Government. an<1 the British nation at large, feel fbr this kind anil honorable manifestation of sympathy by ths cltissns of the United States for the sufferings of the Irish people. It might, indeed, hare been expected, that a generous and high-minded nation would deeply commiserate the sufferings which an awful visitation of Proridenoe has indicted upon so large a population descended from a the same ancestors as themselves. Liut the active and energetic assistance which the people of the United States are thus affording to the poor Irish, while it reflects the highest honor upon our transatlantic brethren. must tend to draw oloeur. and to render stronger and more lasting those ties of friendship and mutual esteem, which her Majesty's Government trusts will long continue to exist between the two great branches of the Anglo-Saxon family?separated, indeed, from earh other by geographical position, but united together by oommon interests, to which every succeeding year must add increasing extension and force.

REPORT. It eaunot be necessary to enter into any detail respecting our voyage for its incidents, are freeh in the minds of us all. It will be sufficient to state generally, that it haa been attended from the day of our departure by an almost constant succession of head winds and opposing seas. About three-fourths of the time the wind ban been directly or nearly ahead, and wc cannot reckon la all more than four days of fuvorable weathsr Under I these discouraging circumstances, It must bo admitted that wc have occasion rather to bo surprised that we have made our passage so quickly, than that it hae been so much prolouged, a success which we are constrained so attribute as well to the efficiency of the propeller as to the superior sailing qualities of the ship. One point deserves to be especially noticed, that whenever the weather has favored her, the vessel has admirably performed her part. In view of these circumstances, your committee recommend that thu letter accompanying this report be presented to Captaiu Thompson.
