After a short deliberation, we decided to enter the city, and p.MSifig beneath the arched gateway, soon found ourselves in the narrow and barricaded streets. After penetrating for some distance. 1 paused and looked aronnd me. and my feelings were not of the moat comfortable natare. Save our little party, not an American was to be seen?we were literally alone in an enemy's city Wo were the first of our countrymen who had entered Vera Crux. 1 know not what came over me -whether It was the spirit of adventure, or a wild and inexcusable recklessness, or both?I suddenly left my party to lake care of themselves," and turning a corner. proceeded entirely alone through the winding and half*, deserted streets The secret dread which 1 had experienced on first passing the gateway was gone, and 1 went rambling over the whole town, solitary and unarmed. ? On I went, whore the buildings.tofn in pieces, the pavements blown up, aud the pieces of bomb shells lying about, told the effect of these dreadful missiles? on, where the black jalousieu, overhanging the thoroughfares, presented an excelleut lurking place for the assaa stn, ana itiu unuarmeu. Never bad 1 beheld such destruction of property.? Scarcely a house did I pans that did not show some great rent made by the bunding of our bomb shells. At almost every house at which 1 passed to examine the destruction occasioned by these dreadful messengers of death, some one of the family (if the house did not happen to be deserted) would couie to the door, and, inviting me to enter, point out their property destroyed, and with a pitiful sigh exclaim. " La bomhaLa bomka[the bomb ! the bomb !] My heart ached for the poor creatures. During my peregrinations. I came to a lofty and noble mansion, in which a terrible bomb had exploded, and laid the whole front of the house in ruius While I was examining the awful havoc created, a beautiful girl of some seventeen cams to the door aiid invited me into the house. She pointed to the furniture of the mansion torn into fragments, and the piles of rubbish lying around, and informed me, with her beautiful eyes tilled with tears, that the bomb bad destroyed her father, mother, brother and two little sisters, and that she was now left In the world alone ! O war ! war !?whooan tell thy horrors 1 Who can picture thy deformities .' Duriug the afternoon I visited the hospital. Here lay upon truckle beds the mangled creatures who had hecu wounded during the bombardment in one corner was a poor, decrepit, bed ridden woman, her head white with the sorrows of seventy years. One of her withered arms had been blown off by a fragment of a shell. In auotber place might be seen mangled creatures of both sexes, bruised and disfigured by the falling of their houses, and bursting of the shells. On the stone floor lay a little child in a complete state of nudity, with one of its poor legs cut off just above the knee! The apartment was filled with flies, that seemed to delight in the agonies of the miserable creatures over whom they hovered, and the noans were heart-rending, i went about from cot to cot, and attempted to condole ith the sufferers, bv whom I was invariably greeted th a kind smile.

[ From the -Wataosoras Flag 1 On the morning of the bth just, says the Flag, a Mr. i'almer, of Hud Hirer, l.ouisiuua. who has lived for some time in Texas, on bearing of the capture of Vera Crus. ran up to the Catholic Church in this place, and made Its ponderous bell In merry peals tell of the gladness of his heart. It being early in the morning, the Padre and his Hock were at their devotions. Astounded at what they considered a sacrilegious interruption, the men rushed to repel the invader, the women following close behind. The gentleman Texan told them he recollected very well when his countrymen were brought into the town, after a bloody massacre, that the same bell was made to toll the rejoicings of the Mexicans, and although it might cost him his life, he would make it do the same thing for the Americans over the full of Vera Crux. In a few gracious words he apologized to the ladies for the alarm he had occasioned them; to the men he exhibited his revolver, and they uuickly opened a passage for him. In'the most gloomy hour of the light, at Buena Vista. Sergeant Langford. lstiMiesiasippl Kegiment. was shot through the thigh. Unable to stand, he sat upright, and shot dead, with his pistol, a lancer as he approached him. While engaged in re-loading, another lancer trotted past him, and raised his lance to drive into a wounded lieutenant a few feet from him. Before the weapon was hurled, however. Langford threw bis pistol and struck the lancer a stunning blow on the nape of the neck. The action saved the lieutenant, but proved fatal to the magnanimous Langford; for, staggering, the Mexican turned and drove his lance into the forehead of the wounded man, coming out hack of his ear. Just at this moment, four men, who were approaching with a horee to carry off their comrade, shot the Mexican at the moment he had disengaged his iance.and he tumbled across the body of the prostrate Mississippian. THE MILITARY ACADEMY. [From the Savannah Republicau. April 16.] We publish to-day au article from the Mew York Herald, showing the part that the graduates of West Point took with the volunteers at the battle of Buena Vista, it is a matter of public interest to know what West Point has done for the country, after all the abuse which has been lavished upon that institution. The gallant Gen Hamer. just u few minutes before dying, is said to have wished that his life might be spared to return to Washington, and repair some injurious impressions which he had helped to create against the dilitary Academy. The army has been the victim of much crying injustice?never so much felt as when the regiments of dragoons were first created, when officers who had beeu yearH in service saw themselves ranked by citiidns, many of whom were dismissed cadets. The deep disgust caused by this circumstance caused most of the resignations which took place during the Florida war. We know of no resigned graduates within the circle of our acquaintance, who did not offer their services to Government, as soon as the war with Mexico broke out. A complete list of all those who have actually been associated with the volunteers, would swell very much that published by the Herald. Among them may be named Col. Humphrey Marshall, who commanded a regiment of Kentucky cavalry at the battle of Buena Vista. lie graduated in 1833, and his regiment accompanied Gen. Wool in his long and arduous march The name of Col. R. K. Temple, who graduated in 1828, and commands one of the regiments lately raised in New York, belongs to the list, as well as that of Col. Thomas, of the class that graduated in 1H30. who held himself in readiness to march with auother New York regiment, if called upon. The name of Lieut. Ruff of the Missouri volunteers in Santa Ke, is another one which occurs to us. There are doubtless many more than thorn; already named. SOME OP THE HEROES op THE WAR General Worth was born in the city of Hudson, Columbia oounty. New York. The first of the name in this oountry came from Devonshire, England . and settled in Massachusetts in 1643. The General's father followed the sea. was a man of character and capacity: his mother was the daughter of Marshall Jenkins. Esq., one of the original proprietors of the city of Hudson. Worth was educated for. and bred up to mercantile pursuits; but, as he once said to the writer of this notice, " he was not born to be a merchant;" meaning that his inclinations pointed another way. and that the cast and character of his mind disqualified him for the avocation. On the declaration of war in 1813, he was a resident of Albany; and though but eighteen years of age, deter mined at once to enter the service; but unable to get a sommission, or impatient of the delay which those who apply for office sometimes experience, he joined the army as a private secretary to Major (leneral Lewis, who finding him more inclined to the field than the desk, and having no vacancy in his own family, very kindly recommended him to Scott, who was then at the head of his brigade on the Canada frontier. Scott immediately appointed him his aid. and placed him on his staff. In the active and spirited campaign which ensued, he distinguished himself as a hrave und gallant soldier. He was with Scott in the battles of Chippewa and Niagara, ii the latter he reoeived a severe wound, from the effects f which he at times still suffers. I'or his conduct at hippewa ho reoeived the brevet rank of captain After of Niagara, he was breveted major. After the war for everal years stationed at West Point, as inof tactics. As major of ordnance, he comt Watervliet, was afterwards promoted to tho lonel. and assigned to the eighth regiment w seijuently sent to Florida, and tin it: ? i ^ed brigadier general. With that rank ho commanded in Florida until ordered with his regiment to joia the Army of Occupation under Oeneral Taylor. The residue of his history may be read in the gazettes of the day Ha is now brevet major general, and colonel of the eighth regiment of the line. MILITARY.

The destiny of nations and individuals is frequently controlled and regulated by events which in their inception are small and insignificant, but which graduully, and sometimes imperceptibly, grow and increase until they assume an impor- ? tance at once wonderful and overpowering. The * small cloud speck in the horizon will gradually t increase, until the whole firmament is over- j clouded, and willthen discharge itself in torrents on the earth below, carrying desolation and ruin , in its course. Thus, in the year 1765, an incident in the English Colonies of America, the passage of the stamp act, small and insignificant as it was in its inception, led eventually to the separation of those colonies from the mother country, an event that the most chimerical of the remonstrants never dreamed of. The speck in that instance increased until it was the cause of one of the greatest, most triumphant, and most beneficial revolutions that ever took place. In respect to individuals, the remark is equally as applicable. Benjamin Franklin was the son of a mechanic, and at an early age was taken into his father's shop to learn the mysteries of his handicraft; afterwards, he was bound apprentice to his brother, who was a printer; but the n|>prentice became more distinguished than his master?u disturbance arose between them, and they separated. That very disturbance and separation was no doubt the event that controlled Franklin's destinies for evei after. The same remark ugain applies to political parties, and we might tell numerous instances of its truth. It is, however, unnecessary to do so, inasmuch as we have numerous instances within the Recollection of even the rising generation, to prove it. We need not refer to more than the corn law ngitation in England, which was commenced by a single individual, hut which agitated the whole of that country before its momentum was exhausted, levelling in its course the most powerful monopoly perhaps in the world. The same course of events is in progress in this country at the present time. A small event?as small in its incipiency as any one of those we have alluded to, occurred within the past eighteen months, but which, from the day of its birth, has increased and grown, and which, before its exhaustion, will terminate in producing effects of momentous importance to our country. That speck was the war with Mexico. At first it was thought nothing of. A handful of men under the command of a military man but little known to the mass, was despatch- , ' ed to the frontier to protect it against invasion. Circumstances occurred that tended to prolong the war for a much longer period than was anticipated. The expenses of the war must be paid 1 in territory to be added to the United States, ' and though last, not least, the "obscure" general 1 has proved himself to be the greatest warrior of the age, una enaearea nnnsen so raucn 10 ine people of the United States, that if Providence spare his life, they will confer upon him the highest honor of the republic. Already one of the great political parties into which the country is divided, has, in anticipation of the wishes and action of the people, laid violent hands on this General Taylor, und without enquiring whether his political principles are orthodox or not, they have run his'name to the mast head, nnd insist upon having him ns their candidate. The other party is astounded, nnd wonder what the result will be. They appear undecided as to the course which they ought to pursue, and not daring to detract from his extraordinary services, are yet afraid to acknowledge them, lest circumstances which they think may hereafter occur, might render Huch n course beneficial to their opponents. No one knows, however, what Gen. Taylor's opinions are on the only one point of difference there is between the two parties, viz: the subject of protection. Without reference to this question, he will, from present appearances, be the next President of the United States by acclamation. No one dnred to cpiestion Washington on the principles 011 which he would conduct the government, and yet the people?the masses?the gratitude of the people, elevated him to the chief magistracy. All section- 1 at prejudices were merged in the gratitude of the 1 people. It was after the terms for which he was | ' elected had expired, that factions and parties j arose. The same course will, no doubt, follow | ' General Taylor's election He will be elected by j ' the people, without reference to whether he i ' is in favor of protectee tnrifla or not? : ' all party principles and difiernnces will be ( ' thrown to the winds, .and "General Taylor's in- j 1 fluenee will he so wide spread, that it will in- i { fluence Congress as well as the country. It will he after his term or terms of ollice expire, that j j parties will he again formed; nnd when that time . shall liavi* arrived the nainca of locofoco and whig will he thrown aside, as were those of buck-tails and federalists in the early history of the country. What influence such n train of events will have on the ultiinatc interests of the country, cannot, of course, he predicted now. New subjects of difference will arise ; but, with the election of Gen. Taylor, the ques- | lion of protection will, like that of a national j bank, he set at re?t forever. ' Such tuny t>r (l f. w Pf ,|,r re-ult- of tlic Mexican war. | lV?w York City Bltetkm DtaMeti.

It may therefore he calculated that if the ''b'hoya" manage the nominations of the democratic party next fall, as they did this iprlng. the delegation from this city will be about equal* y divided. Aa to the Senators, although the whig canlidate for Mayor had majorities in three of the four disricta, we think the democrats will probably carry at least wo, if not three of the Senators, provided their nomlnaions are judicious, and aro approved of by the " old mnkers.1' The 2d Assembly district, composed of the 3d and 6th sards, will form an interesting field for the operations of Ihe pipe layers of both parties. It will be advisable for them to commence laying their plans at least two or three months before the elecMon, as the new constitution requires thirty days residenoepn the distriet where the citixen offers bis vote. It appears that the democrats had a small majority in the district in 1844, and the whigs in 1847, as follows :? Nov. 1844. April 1847. Whig. Item. IVhit.

Several other districts will probably be closely contested; but this statement, for which wo think politicians will thank us, must suffloe fer the present. Virginia Election. The returns by the last mall eonflrm the election of Flournoy (whig) in the third district, Preston (whig) in the twelfth distriet, and Bedinger (democrat) in the tenth district. Patrick County, in tho third district, gives Flournoy 47 majority, which secures his eleotion by 64 majority in the district, even if Halifax has given 308 for Tredway, Preston's majority in the 12th district (all the counties having been heard from, oxeept Logan, which gave 64 majority for Pelk), is 349. The reported majority in the tenth district for Henry Bedinger (dem.), over A. Kennedy (whig), is 368. l'olk't majority in the same distriet was 707. KLThe returns from the fourteenth district, Wood and ewls Counties, show a whig gain of 130 for MoComas, and render his election probable. A correspondent of the Richmond Enquirer fears that Fulton (whig) is elected in the fifteenth district (Little Tennessee), in consequence of the divisions of the democrats. The Richmond Whig publishes a report from Petersburg (second district) that in Amelia County, Droingoole s majority was 47 instead of 74, which would elect *?ui-\ u- - u it... ,1 IMUllIlg ^WUIg; UY ?

The result in the State cannot as yet be definitely stated, but it is now certain that the whigs havo elected five members of Congress, probably six, and possibly seven, although five is probably nearer tho mark.

In four counties, tho remainder to be heard from, Polk's majority was 700. The district will, therefore, be close and doubtful. No Western news from Pittsburgh. Steamship Wasiii.noton.?Among the* many moves that have been made in these, moving times, none has been more important than the first movement of the stupendous engine of the ocean steamer Washington. We had the pleasure of witnessing the trial of this engine yesterday; and although we had formed what might be called an extensive opinion of it, we must acknowledge that the said opinion was not too extensive. The case and grace with which this massive structure first moved was really creditable, as well as gratifying, to the scientific constructors. We have, on former occasions, spoken of the Washington?her model, &o., us she came from the ship-yard ; we have now to speak of her with her engines Rnd machinery on board, and in working order ; and without wishing to disparage the English steamships, we can truly say that she is one of the most beautiful, substantial and complete vessels, in all her arrangements, that ever floated on our waters.

May day should be never chosen for a race. Still, no doubt, the courso will be crowded, for strangers enough have already arrived from Boston. Philadelphia and other cities to fill all the stands. Thousands of dollars have been wagered on the result; the betting thus far being even.

Park Thkatbx.?Mr. Forrest's performance of the part of 8partacus,[in the tragedy of the " Gladiator,1' last evening, was a finished piece of acting in the peculiar style of. the great Ainorlcan tragedian. The part of the gladiator is one which requires vast physical force to display it to advantage. That requisite Mr. Forrest certainly possesses in an eminent degree. The part of I'hasarius was performed by Mr. Dyott. tnat oi senona by Mrs. Abbott, and the cast well filled by the other members of tho company, all of whom did well what they had to do. Tho ' Invisible Prinee" waa again performed, to wind up the evoning'a entertainment. Tonight Mr. Korrest will appear aa " Richard ill.,'' on which occasion we doubt not there will be a full attendance. Bowery Theatre.?It la a matter of wonderment to many that tho Bowery Theatre can contain aa many people aa were preaont there last evening, but the myatery la soon solved when it la recollected that Mra. Shaw ia performing there. The most numerous audiences that the four walla of this theatre ever contained, were those that were Attracted thither by that distinguished actress. She will enact the part of (jora, in the tragedy of "11 Maledetto," this evening; and "Jack Sneppard," (always a favorite ^ piece at the Bowery,) will be repeated. Ma. Alexander.? Wo consider It unnecessary to say a word in favor of Mr. Alexander, the great magioian.? It is sufficient that the public are advised, as we believe they are, that he will repeat hia extraordinary performances this evening, to ensure a full house. Vau?hall Gaheen.?Thus far Eaton progresses admirably in bis great undertaking. We are informed that the strictest vigilance ia observed in watching him; so that no oomplaints can be made after the feat is over. Musical.

This| announcement will be gratifying to all who have had tho pleasure of hearing them. The Swiss Bell-ringers.?The talent and genius of these unique performers ia bo well appreciated, that we consider it unnecessary to say a word in their favor, further than to repeat what we hare said of them hcretofore. Every night they are listened to by large and fashionable audiences, and every night they Are compelled. by the storms of applause with which they are greeted, to perform much more than they advertised. Thin nf course. thnv do not obiect to: because thev regard it as a compliment of no ordinary kind. They will perform this evening again at the Apollo Itoome, City Intelligence.

At the second board tho sales were to a very limited extant, without any material alteration in prices. It is reported In the street that the Sarah Sands brought ?184,486, equal to eight hundred and oightyfivc thousand dollars. There is a better feeling in Wall street, and wo have no doubt that prices will advance several per cent farther before a reaction takes place; at all events, from exi?ttin<y inHirftfinnfl wo uhAiilil inrlirp that.
