And we sav, without .the least tear of contradiction, that it is more durable than either tin, zinc, or Copper. All we ask, therefore, of those wishing to evade line-half the expense usually iucurred in roofing, is, to give it an unprejudiced examination. The subscribers have executed this roofing on over 1000 buildings, all, or any of which tbey are w illing the public should examine for themselves. We wish the public not to be deceived by confounding the American composition with a species of tar and paper roofing practised under the pietence that it it the same. The cost of the Ainernmu Composition Roofing, when executed on plank board* or shingles, averages from to i cents the sqnaicfoot ; and when executed on tin, zinc, or copper, 2}? to 3^4 cents per square foot. Thoie, therefore, who have old tin, line, or copper roofs tint me leaky, may here find a perfect remedy by the use of the American compos, tion, and the heavy expense sttendaiit upon tile old system of roofing and repairing, completely obviated.

Secretary of the Navy, Washington. O. C. a FFAIltS IN MEXICO. [From the New Orleans Picayune, May 4 ] We bavo received papers from the city of Muxloo to the 10th of April. Wuilnd in them various matters of temporary interest, but one law, passed on the nth ult is of generul importance. By this law all Mexicans capable of bearing arms nro called into tho service of the government. The various regulations as to arming a national guard?for such is the body oontemplated by the call?aro given in tho papers, but would be of no particular interest here. Honor D. Angel Trias, late governor of Chihuahua, was in the city of Mexico on the 9th ult. soliciting aid to drive back the " perfidious invader." It would seem that his private fortune suffered much dilapidation in his preparations to tight the battle of Sacramento, and he very reasonably demands that tho general government should make good this loss, as well as to provide him with forcos to resume his former position in Chihuahua. Tho manner in which the Americans have conducted themselves since the battle of Sacramento, (fought on the 28th February) is reflected upon very severely. They ore denouueed as Vandals and " alj that sort of thing." but we have become so used to these denunciations that we pay little regard to them. Wc And several things in tho papers touching the preparations to receivo " the Invaders,"' but all the calculations are prior to the battle of the 18th ult., whereby Mexican speculations were very much dernnged. [From the New Orleans Delta. May 4.] The Eagle estimates the number of mon which will bu required to garrison Mexico, in the event of a peace not being conquered, at forty-seven regiments, or 40,0(10 mon, to be statioued as follows:?One regiment at Tarnpioo. one in Vera Crux, two Jalapa, six in Puebla. sixteen in Mexico, three in Victoria, one in Matamoras. three in Oajaca. three in (iuanajuato, three in Zacutecas. four in San l.uis i'otosi, three in Durango, two in Chihuahua, one id ?aiuuo, ana nve in Guadalajara. The expense of maintaining this army the editor sets down at $lfl,<XK).000 per annum. He estimate* a revenue from the new tarilT of $13,000,000. and recommends the imposition of a direct tax on the towns in our possession of $7,000,000; thus leaving a surplus in the treasury, instead of drawing from it. lie further estimates, if permanent possession should be kept of tlio country, that the sale of the public lands, by encouraging immigration from tlio United States and Europe, would annually amount to more than one-fourth of the above sum. Col. Harney's charge is described in the Eagle as the most brilliant act of the battle of Cerro < fordo. Mrs. Hart, favorably known as an actress at the St Charles theatre two winters ago, died recently at Vera Crux. We have advices from Tampieo to the 27th ult. The place is remarkably healthy. The new tariff of duties on goods Imported into captured Mexican ports had atrived there, and Is already goue into effect. The following letter is published in the Tampieo Sentinel :? Carcf.l Santiago, Mexie.o, April 3, 1847. Messrs. Editor#:?By a friend, who is going to Tampieo. I have just a moment to write. The object of iny writing is to call your attention, and through you the attention of the commanders of our army, to this fact: By a publication recently made by lien. Santa Anna, he declares that he has agreed with (ien. Taylor for our exchange. From this publication Gen. Scott will bo led to believe that we are at liberty and with Uen. Taylor, and tho latter that we are with the former, when in fact wc are still here in prison. I write merely to advise you that the Mexicans are acting in bad faith. We arc confined in the penitentiary, where they confine for punishment criminals of ull kinds. The health of our party, except Major Gaines, who is improving, is good. The men arc geuerallv in good health. By calling the attention of our authorities to the above, you will confer an obligation on your countrymen. Respectfully, C. C. DANLEY. [From the Now Orleans Bulletin, May 4.] A report was current yesterday, said to be founded on a letter from Vera Cruz, that Santa Anna had been shut. YVii shall not h? mirnrimol to !? ??? that ? ??!? been the cite. Letters from Vorm Crui state, that the Mexican offiuers who ham fallen Into our bands openly accuse him of being a traitor, and that ho has betrayed the army at the late battle. Wo have, ourselves, not the least idea of such being the fact, but still we can readily imagine that such an Impression might exist in the minds of his countrymen, when they recollect how he was admitted into Mexico, andthedoclnrations which have been ofllcially made on the part of our government respecting him. The suspicions of him, which were naturally excited by this course, and his recent military reverses, might well confirm the opinion of his treason, and hare led to his destruction. INCIDENTS OF THE BATTLE OK CEKHO GOEDO. [from the New Orleans Delta, May 4 ] Our loss in killed and wounded in the battle of Ccrro Oordo will not fall short of 500. The proportion of officers killed and wounflbd is less than in our previous battles. The Mexican loss was about as groat as our own. They lost, however, besides Gen Vasquei. throe field officers'?one of whom was a brother of Gen. La Vega. Many of the Mexican wounded would die of their wounds, though they were attended not only by their own.but also by our surgeons.There was a great contrast, which illustrates the superior fortitudo of tho American character and constitution between tho bearing and conduct of the Mexican wounded and our own. Tho Mexicans seemed to be utterly prostrated by the slightest wounds, and evinced their despair and weakness by loud lamentations, by crossing their breasts apd weeping like children. The Americans, on the other hand, tore their sufferings with inanly fortitude, and with scarcely any demonstrations of pain or sorrow; they submitted to the most painful surgical operations without complaining: and, indeed, appeared to feel pride in the conciousness of having given proof of their devotion to the honor and flag of our Republic. Capt. Hughes relates that as he was approaching our Hospital, he met three privates of the Mounted Riflemen, who had just hadlthelr right arms amputated, and were quietly walking along whistling and chatting as if nothing had happened. Lapt. Mason, a gallant Virginian, the sen of the lamented lien Mason who fell in a duel some years ago, had his leg carried off by a cannon hall. Shortly after undergoing amputation this brave officer received his friends with great cheerfulness, and indulged lu many a lively Jest over his mishap. The kiBdness of our men to the wounded of ths enemy was as conspicuous as their fortitude under suffering.? After the battle was over they could to seen on every side lifting the poor fellows' into easier positions, supplying them with water and binding up their wounds.? Sturdy fellows who. a few minutes beforu, were charging ugainst the enemy with the most destructive fury and savage determination. were now transformed l)jr victory into kind nurses, who watched over and assisted their wounded enemies with the most tender care and solicitude. The circumstances, too. were not calculated to arouse very kindly feeling* on the part of our men. The cowardly advantage taken by the enemy in raining the white llag after they had killed no many of our men from their aocuru defence*, and juat at tho time when a bloody vengcuce wan to be taken for the Revere loaa w* had incurred, canned an almost irrepreaeible excitement and hatred in the bottoms of our men. They could acareeiy be kept off until the enemy were disarmed, and then they were perfectly safe. American soldiers, resolute and irresistible against an armed foe. would not raise their hands against oue unarmed and defenceless. Major Sumner. who led the rifles in the attack of the 17th on the enemy's advanced position, made n very narrow escape. In the charge, he was struck on the head by a musket bullet. The bullet was flattened to the thinness of a dime, and retained on its surface the f>rlnt of the Major's hair, and yet, strange to say. oxer ping the severance of an artery, ho sustained no serious injury. The artery was taken up. and at the last accounts the Major was doing woll. This excellent officer ?accounted one of the bast tacticians and disciplinarian* in the army?may certainly felicitate himself on the strength of his cranioiogieal defences. He will never find any difficulty In getting a liberal policy in nny of our life Insurance offices. That valuable officer,Captain Johnson,lately appointed Lieut. Colonel of ono of the new ten regiments, was badly wounded in a reconnoissanca made by order of (ien. Twiggs, two or three day* before the battle, ami before the enemy's position was known, lie received two n.n.hiO I.all. nni> lhrm,?l> Ih. ikl.1. i_ _ -- - ? 'lining id* lemorai artery, and another through tho ishouldor. Ills robuitt constitution anil great endurance will It ie believed, triumph over his severe wound*, and he is now preuounced by hi* surgeons to be out of danger. Gen. Patterson was 011 the field and under Ore. though seriously indisposed and greatly weakened by sickness He whs unable to take command of his division, both on account of hi* physical debility and the separation of the two brigades under his command, which were operating at dilTorent and distant points. Oen. Smith was severely ill, confined to his cot. and thus lost tho occasion which his brave heart so warmly panted for, of leading his gallant rifles In their brilliant charge against the Ccrro. Gen. t|ultman did not arrive on the field until the day after tho battle. Our gallant Southern regiments again lost the opportunity of showing their mettle. The Alahamians and Georgians had the misfortune to be omitted in tho programme of the storming of Monterey, and they sorely complained on account of it. A like misfortune at < erro Gordo, coming so close upon the time of their dishandment. has no doubt given these gallant regiments great mortification and chagrin There were at least 6,000 Mexicans taken prisoners at <'erro Gordo. But f?w who were within the entrenchments escaped. Santa Anna kept a large oorpa of reserve outside the batteries, all of whom eeoeped The waat of W V o EW YORK, THURSDAY ? . ? -- " cavalry was severely felt la the pursuit of the fugitives. If Twiggs haj had a cavalry forco of one thousand, he would hare taken Santa Anna and his whole army. The officers who wore taken prisoners w re the bravest and best iii the Mexican army. General Jarrero Is an old and experienced officer, who lias long commanded the cuxtle of Perote. When the Texan prisoners were confined in that gloomy fortress, General Jarrero treated tbeui with great kindness and generosity Wo trust, that on this account, as well as from a regard to his position, he will l>o kindly and hospitably treated by our citizcus when he visits New Orleans. Of General La Vega, we need only say. that he Is well known throughout Mexico and the United States, for i his gullnntry at Itesucu de la Palina and for his dignified nud gentlemanly bearing during his sojouru in this country as a prisoner of wur. There are among the prisoners several naval officers, who were very efficient in managing the artillery iu the batteries. They are intelligent gentlemen, and speak the English language. The younger officers were very much excited against Santa Anna. They declared, that if ho had not kept. out.of the illtrench moots nud showed his determination to Hy. they would have been able to mainlaiu their positions. They openly charged iilui with being either bribed or frightened?a traitor or a coward. Seventeen Mexican officers were brought to Vera Cpuz under a strong escort. The Mexicans on the road hail not heard of the battle or of its results, und when they saw the escort approaching, they ran out of their houses fo see what it ui'unt. As soon as the well known faces of their own ojlicerx under an American guurd. came within view, they seemed to be struck dumb with astonishment aud al inn. Gradually these feelings gave way to sorrow, and their lamentations over the misfortunes anil disgrace of their country were loud and affecting The defenders of Vera Cruz, who were released on their parole, are viewed ill a very unfavorable light bv the .Mexican Government. Morales, Uandero and ol&er of the officers who were in command at V?ra Cruz. Intro boon arrested for cowardice, and sent to Guanajuato. to bo imprisoned and triod. Morales in especially charged with exhibiting feelings of friendship for the United States, and with having declared publicly, in Jalapa and elsewhere, that it was vain to resist tho Americans; that they were better guardians of the liappiuess of Mexico than her own rulers. He advised the ladles of Jalapa to remain in tnwn.aiid assured them and tho people geners II y that they would suffer no harm ?r outran1' from the Americans. Wo sincerely hope this assurance of our Kaliant. ene my will lie justified by theconductof our troops. Thus far Gen. Scott, we understand.lias succeded in maintaining excellent discipline and subordination in his large j force. No robberies, no devastat ion or outrages of any sort have marked the course of his army. The houses on the roadside were left undisturbed, the eattle and provisions of the poor farmers, the little stock of mcr- ' cliaudise in the stores ?even the decanters in the grog shops, on the return of the owners?who (led at the ap- 1 proach of th? ariny?were found just as they were left, ! with tho single exception that a few of the decanters were emptied. The dead of the enemy at the battle of Cerro Oordo : were unstripped and undisturbed by our men Tho pri- j vato property, money, jewelry, etc.. of the officers, wero : nil delivered over to the pay department, to be sent to the friends of the decensed officers. There was not a single case of robbery complained of by any of the uriso- j ners. It was whispered among tho soldiers that iu removing Santa Anna's specie chests into our camp, one of them did accidentally fall rather violently on a rock.and a few castings rolled out; whether they were ever picked up, or if picked up, if they ever got back iuto Santa Anna's pocket, wus never ascertained uor particularly inquired into. The Mexicans are favor&by impressed towards General Scott, wlio has treated them with great kindness, and manifested a respect for their religion and their customs from whish very beneficial results will no doubt be experienced. I There is no reason, however, to believo that tho victory of Cerro Gordo will bring us any nearer to a peace than we were before. The war is not unpopular with the mass of the Mexicans. They have sutfered none of its horrors, liesidcs the controlling spirits of the country keep up tho war spirit, knowing tliat if the country Is occupied by the United States, they will lose their offices and their influence. It 1h believed by (Jen. Heott and the officers with him, that it will be necessary to occupy tiie whole country. This he thinks cau be easily done. rw iiiu ^u.uiiu uieu no win inarrn 10 inn capital, taKo possession or the Government, disarm thu people, establish a provisional Government under the authority of the United States, and defray its expenses from the customs and mines, tile chief source of ruvenue in Mexico. Without this force lien. Scott will not be aide to move with safety to his communications beyond Jalupa. lie will have to occupy the Orizaba road, to prevent the enemy operating against his roar from that position. Having arrived in the Terra Temi>lada and encamped in a perfectly healthy position, he wilt no doubt wait for reinforcements before he pushes farther at least than Perote, tlio next point of attack. We have been requested by Captain U ughe* to stata, for the purpose of preventing a misinterpretation of our editorial of yesterday, in reference to the battle of Ccrro Gordo, tbat he was attached to thu staff of lien. Worth, whose division constituted the supporting party, and was not, therefore, engaged in the actual coutiict, although it was for some time exposed to the lire of the enemy's batteries, and occupied the Jalapa road almost simultaneously with the currying the heights of Corro Gordo, by the second division under Gen Twiggs. [From the Vura Cruz Fugle, April id ] Without meaning to particularise any one regiment or company engaged in the into battle at Cerro Gordo, we will state that the eliai go upon one of the most formidable heights and batteries, made by Col. liaruey. was probably ouo of the most brilliant ulfairs of the kind ever witnessed. The ascent is represented as having been so rugged and steep as not to admit, for a moment, ttie idea of attacking it by the cavalry under his command, whilst mounted, so that after gaining the foot of the lull, they dismounted and made their way to the top by the aid of their weapons, digging every step, whilst grape and canister descended like a hailstorm upon them.

A man was arrested the next day on suspicion, but was subsequently discharged for want of evidence.

Julia Stevens and Nuncy Tool, residing at the corner of Cross and Mulberry streets, in the house where bailey was secreted, suspected something was wrong, from the fact of seeing him with a roll of hank bills and some gold, and at the sume time secreting himself in the house.

" \re you prepared, gentlemen, to ant at once on the lei solution?'' Tne ayes were uttered in a voice of thunder, I so as completely to drown the noes. The sense of the I meeting being thus unequivocally ascertained, the first | resolution was read, aud although all important, we I really believe It would have passed without discussion or consideration, had not Profussor Granville S Pattisoo got up. and in a very ralin and temperate address. Insisted on the importance of the question under consideration, and the necessity for deliberation before action. The purpose of his remarks, as nearly as l we recollect, were as follows:? The question under eou' sideration" he observed. " was one of the most momentous consequence to the interest" of medical science?It was tho subject of medical education, and ho would with all deference and respect put it to the meeting, whether they would feel themselves justified without consideration. before they had even had time to read the report of the committee, to enact a code of laws which wae entirely to revolvtioniio the present system of medics! education. It hud been suecringly said, that the medical colleges were opposed to any improvement on the system at present pursued, lie could, from the full knowledge of the sentiment of tho members of his own faculty, (the Medical Department of the I'nlver Ity of the elty of New York) and from the views he had heard expressed by some of ths most distinguished professors in the country, state positively that such was not tho fact On the contrary, ha would assert that there was not a member of thnt convention, nor a single medloal uian in the country, more anxious to elevate the standard of medical education. and more zealous In their efforts to aoenmniuu t? than the gentlemen to whom the task of incdical edueatlon had been entrusted?the medical professors of tha United State*. The question wa<, how waa thin beat t* be accomplished! Certainly not by hurried lobulation , not by the lnconalderate passage of a system of crude and ill digested regulations. but by calm and deliberate consideration. If a change ia to be brought about In the present system of wduratlon, It must bo produced by a temperate uud moderate action? If you demand too much ell at once, you will gain nothing; but. if you with moderation introduce changes and Improvement* into the present system, you will accomplish more in a few years than the most sanguine could have anticipated, lie would therefore suggest the following plan to the ineetiug. via : That all the report* bearing on the subject of medical education, be referred to-tho Medical Kaeulty of the different college* of the I nitcd States, to be examined by them, and that they be rccouimeuded to bold a convention, to meet two or three days before tbo next auuuid meeting of this convention, and to propose sucb a system of regulation* for medical education as in their wisdom would be considered advisable, and to submit the same to tbo consideration and action of the medical convention "By pursuing this course," the 1'rr fcssor observed, "yon will have presented to you tb? result* of the observation itud experience of those men whose live* have been deleted to medical education, and you will have their pledge faithfully to carry out the system they have re commended." Our sheet will not permit us to report further the ubservutioiis of Professor Pattison We shall only say that In our opinion they were most reasonable and just, and wu were astonished that they were not una niuiously adopted Sucb howevVr. was not the fact? the majority of the members of the conrcution having it appeared to us, met, not fur deliberation, but for the purpose of carrying out a system of revolution, by which they flutter themselves they shell so close the door against tlie admission of members into the profs* sion n* to engross all the profits to themselves. In this hope uud expectation, if they had the power to carry out their wishes.which they fortunately have not, they would find themselves most miserably disappointed If a stand ard of uduuut lou it fixed on lor the dArtorate. so high as to exclude all except tlie tons of the rich, who have the means to avail themselves of it, the effect will not he to diminish the number of doctors, but. on the contrary, to increase them. It will make it reputable for amau to practice without a single course of medical lectures, and the number will be multiplied ten-fold One of the resolutions of the convention is, that no student shall ba allowed to attend medical lectures, wbo shall not be conversant with "natural philosophy, mathematics, geometry, algebra, and the itreeli and Lntiu languages " ! : ! We should like to kuow how luauy of those learned Thehans who have enacted this law. are conversant with natural philosophy, inatliematirs. geometry, algebra, and the I.stm and Greek languages ! How niauy.we should like to kuow of the pliysiciaus anil surgeons of Philadelphia and Now V ork, sye. even the most distinguished, nould pass an examination on these subjeets ? We bave really liopalieuce to discuss further this subject Suffice it In say. that what Professor Paulson's suggested was disregarded, and in about an hour and a half all the raselntions reported, and several others, were passed without , discussion.
