Maxico, April 35. 1847 \ Tha M ex loans here, one and all. denounce Santa g Anna for a coward, a traitor, and every thing rise that , la bad ; and I verily believe that a majority of them would r<u?lce exceedingly had Gen. Scott captured him | the other day and hung him upon the first limb strong enough to bear his weight. That he is playing them i false you canuot beat out of their heads?that he has ; sold the battles of Buena Vista and Cerro Gordo for a consideration they are equally confident, and in proof they are eternally talking about the $3 000.000. They i do not underitand wby It was that President Polk ] allowed him to paaa freely Into Vera Crux from Havana, i unluea there waa bribery and corruption at the bottom? the Idea that our troops are a whit better than thelra, or ] ' that they can whip them, even two to one, when posted i i behind batteries, has never entered their heads?and 1 ' hence, as a better exouse than none, there are many of i ; thorn who say that they have been sold by the *' Hero of ! Tampico." Again, there are doubtless many?perhaps the larger portion ?who have lost all confidence, either I in his honesty or bravery; and although they may not ! I desire a peace with us. they are still anxious to get rid of the tyrant ou any terms. Such is the state of feeling here in Jalapa I informed you the other day that I had a story to tell of Sauta Anus and his travailing carriage. lu liis great haste to leave it ho went off without taking any of his effects?a small writing case only was found bruken open, for he had no time to unlock it. from which he had evidently takeu a few papers of great importance ; but the majority of his effects?his silver plate, his papers, his money?all worn there in good condition Two of our officers entered the coach, and what did thoy find, after rummaging about, but a most excellent dinner, together with delicious wine and some highly flavored segars. To say that thoy did not sit themselves comfortably down on bis richly cushioned seats, partake of his sumptuous dinner, wash it down with his delicious wine, and finish it off with his highly flavored segars, would be departing further from the itruth than I care about doing just now. The names of the officers were (Japts. Williams and McKinstry, and the dinner was a perfect windfall after a hard morning's work, without eating, and with slim prospects ahead 'or food. A party of dragoon officers, some two or tdleo wee *8 sine , si so had their own fun near Santa Anna's estate of Mango de ( lavo.? While huutlug about the premises they stumbled upon the building where he kept his fighting chickens. Those well informed uoon the subicrt tell me there was ?. wreut. deal of cock-fighting in that immediate section for a day i or two, and that one particular fight created great ex- < citemeut. A fierce looking rooster which they dubbed , Gen. Taylor?not so large as some, but with game sticking out ail over him?was pitted against u long, gangling chicken that they gam his owner's name to?a heavy i but clumsy bird, with but little fight in him. Well, , Gen. Taylor and Santa Anna, as represented by the , chickens of the latter, were set upon one another, and i after a few heavy hits from the former the latter "vamosed" out of the fight as fast as bis two logs would carry him, leaving Gen Taylor's representative upon , the ground crowing right lustily. Such are some of the i accidents that have befuhen the "Hero of Tanipico." The first number of the American Star is out to-day, and is completely running over with news and information. The proprietors deserve all success f?r their public spirit, and I am glad to see that their editlou of this morning is going off rapidly It is still uncurtain when a main movement of the army is to be made. The want of transportation Is severely felt, for with his preseut means Gen. Scott finds. the greatest difficulty in extending his line of operations. In the meantime, small parties of ladrones and rancheros are committing depredations in the rear; and such is the nature of the country that they can only be pnnishod with the greatest difficulty. Tr.i O'Clock, A. M?The diligencia or stage coach is just iu from the city of Mexico, from whence they have received pupers up to the 22d inst. The newsof the terrible dt feat at Cerro Gordo had reached the capital, and while it astonished and overwhelmed all classes,the tone of the papers,of the public men, and of the Congress itself, would also show that it bad served to inilame tbe people still more against the United States. Anaya has been i appointed provisional President, 1 believe, and has been gifted Willi full powers on every point except that in ' relation to makiDg peace with the United States-this no one thinks of. Congress, in extraordinary sossion, has even declared any one a traitor who talks of peace. The editor of El t epuhlicano saya that we may take Puehta. tbut we may even capture the city of Mexico, but that there muat be no peace. The duty of the people is to sue their cities sacked and destroyed, and themselves immolated, before they talk of peace. The guerilla system of warfare appcurs to be recommended en all sides as their only aalvution; by this means they drove out thu Spaniards, and in the same way they say they must expel the iniquitous, usurping and grasping North Americans from their sacred soil, licllcr all die, and he blotted from the seals of nations, than come to any terms so long as a single hostile foe is on their soil or a I uosuih vessel on tneir coast? such 1 s tlu- language of the pavers, of the civil bodies, and of the military. * From n passenger, a Spaniard, who arrived inthodiligencia, we learn that as yet they have dene little or nothing toward! fortifying Mexico. He also says that there ( is a strong party In favor of peace, although the members hardly dare avow thcraeelTea. There are no regu- | lar troops of consequence on the route; and ail those | who escaped at Orro Gordo. with the exception of a | portion of the cavalry.have dispersed in every direction. | On the'20th April, immediately after the receipt of the ] news of Santa Anna's defeat, Gen. Mariano Halo* called i a meeting of officers, to devise some measures by which ( to preserve the nation from alter obliteration. No one here thinks that the Mexicans can ever inako another < stand aud give another grand battle, but the impression j is prevalent that small parties will be organised to annoy i the roads, cut off supplies, and kill all stragglers. How , great, In this case, Is the necessity for two or three, or ( von ono regiment of Toxans. , Jalata, Mexico. April 5-5, 1847. I have borrowed the copies of El Rrpublicano for an 1 hour. They are dated at the city of Mexico, April 21 and '22. and the latter gives a full account of the battle i of Cerro Gordo. The Mexican particulars of the combat, as usual, are peculiarly rich. They say that Sauta Anna sustained the oombat with tiOuO men against 14,000. and fought valiantly to the very last. When, finally, he found himself entirely surrouuded by enemies, ho forced a passage through ' los Yankees" with a column of the 4th Kegiment of the infantry of the line! The fact, as every one knows, is that Santa Anna left early?all the cutting he did was to cut the saddle mule from his coach, and then cut aud run The Mexicans admit that thoy had two generals killed, hut give no uauie save that of Vasquet. Cols. Cosio and Calatayud are also uamed asamong the killed. Geu Scott's loss, on the 17th aud Istb, is put down at over 40U0, while the loss of the Mexicans is admitted to be 2000 men in killed and wounded. Tbey say that the Americaus fought like hordes of savages, killing all that presented themselves, whether wagouers, old men or women. Gen. Canalizo Is openly accused of bad conduct at Cerro Gordo. They say that when he should have made a charge, which would have been decisive, he withdrew with his cavalry?In plain terms that he ran. Jalapa, Mexico, April 28. 1847. Gen. Sales, who was President ad interim before the arrival of Santa Anna from exile, has Issued a proclamation announcing that he is enipowerud to raise a guerilla corps. And calls upon all good Mexicans to join 1 his standard, in his concluding sentence he says that " war to death, without pity, shall bo the device of the guerilla warfure of vtngeaue.e !"

JaLsas, Mexico, April 23. 1347 Among other rumors brought by passengers, is one to the effect that Mr. Uankhead, the British Minister, has renewed his offers of mediation between Mexico aud the " CI w ro EW YORK, SATURDAY ] L ui ted States. and that whan the last dfllgencla left ths 1 city of Mexico the Congress was acting upon his propositions, whatever they may have been. Notwithstanding the fixed and denunciatory tones of the public press, ' there is certainly a peace party in Mexico, and there j may be something in this report of English Intervention ' In the distracted affairs of Mexioo. 1 Col. Garland's brigade left the Castle of Perots yes- ' terday morning at daylight for Tepe Agualco. and will ' reach that place to-night. Major Smith's light battalion, a troop of dragoons, and Colunel Duncan's battery, accompany Colonel U We learn that General Worth has bten very successful In collecting supplies. An intelligent tnan with whom 1 have conversed, says that ths Mexicans neither wlil nor can make any opposition at Puebia. The population Is one of the worst In Mexlca. and tbo most inimical to strangers, yet the dreadful defeat at Cerro Gordo has completely paralysed them. At the city of Mexico, a few light breastworks have been thrown up. not onlv us you enter the place by the Vera Crux road, but on the road leading to the Convent of our I.ndy of Guadalupe; but nothing like a regular system of defence has been us yet undertaken. Not i'illy the government, but the citizens appear, with all their vauntlngs. to have become stuplfled at the succes iiou oi ueieuts wuicn nave urrmien tD< Ir country, and know not which way to turn or what to do. Santa Anna ha* written to the government from Orizaba, itating thnt ha ha? 1600 men. and want* reinforcements and money; hut hi* demand* have been unheeded. At the city of Mexico, a* well as in other places, the people appear to linvv lost much of their confidence in the Hero of Tampico, and uiany have openly accused him of cowardice at C'crro Gordo, a* well a* having sold the battle to the American*. I am living at the Cat,u ?<< Ditigien iat, or general *t*ge house; and at hreal<fa*t thus morning Homo of the foreigner* were speaking of n body of men, under General I-eon, who were on the march from Oajara to join Santa Anna, and they also said that I,eon had shot two muleteer*, on the plea that they had aided the American*. The Mexican ladrann on the road* appear to be more at war with their own countrymen than with ours, probably because they can purchase easier victories. Two Mexican officer*, who left hero a few days since for the capital, both of whom were wounded, were set upou by banditti ou the road, and not only were thoy robbed, but oue of them wae severely maltreated. The news ha* also come in. w? 11 authenticated, that Captain A ran jo, a marine officer, who commanded both at Vera Cruz and Ceiro Gordo, wu killed by fan Indian three <laya since. He had abused the alcaide of thn village, when one of the bystander* shot him dead on the spot. Aranjo was a noisy blustering fellow, and hi* own countrymen do not appear to shed any tears at his loss. A paper published at Puebla on the 24th instant, La Vtrdad IJemontlrada, came to hand to-day. 1 could only obtain the paper for a short time, bnt long enough to see that the fierce wratli of the editor was fairly boillug over.

'"The cunning dissimulator Seuor Ibarra, venomous as a reptile, crawls forth obscurely from his lurking-place to-duy, in order that to-morrow he may plant his malignant teeth in the vitals of the Republic.

Off with the heads of the vile traitors ! May they die, to wash ont with their blood the infamy they would bring upon this poor nation ! And let us all prepare for a universal uprising. which, like an electric Ore, will consume and devour the Vankees." Majors Borland and Oaines, Capt.

I.?The supreme government of the union is authorised to dictate all necessary measures for tbe purpose of carrying on the war. defending the nationality of the republic, and saving thu federal republican form of government under which the nation is constituted.
