(From the New Orleans Picayune, June 1.] By the way of Tampioo we are placed In poesesslon of a file of CI Rrvublicano, from the elty of Mexico, down to and Including the 19th of May?eleven days later than our previous advices The election of President for Mexico was to hare taken place on the loth of May. As the election was made by the Legislatures of the different States, it is even yet quite too soon to know the result, which is likely to disappoint all expectations. In the State of Mexico, Angel Trias, the Oovernor of Chihuahua, received the vote. Upon the first ballot, Trias received 9 votes; Gen Alvaret, 7; Gen. Almonte, 2; and Senor D. Melchor Ocampo, 1. Upon proceeding to elect between Trias and Alrares, the former received 10 votes and the latter 9. In the State of Querotaro there wus a tie between Senor Almonte and Senor D. J. Joaquin Ilerrera. Lots were cast between the two, and the chances favored Senf?P HftPPfllfL who IhllB MAUPfltl thu vrt+A nf <! ? ? If we recollect aright this la not the ex-Preaid?nt. The State of Puebla gave Its rote to Senor D. Melchor Ocampo. The particulars of the voting are not given. Some time will elapae before we ahall hare the reault of the election. The Republicana of the 19th announcea that General Santa Anna had left the command of the army of the eaat to assume the dutiea of I'reaident of the Republic. He waa to make lila entry into the capital the eveniug of the 19th. He had iaauud a manifesto to tbe nation, but we regret that we have no copy of it. It wag to be pnbllahed in El Republicano of the JOth, which la a day later than we have received. We have two letters from the valoroua general, giving an account of hia military operationa. The ftrit la dated May 9th, and In it he tells the Secretary of War that since hia arrival at Orizaba he had been organising guerilla parties, both Infantry and cavalry, In the vicinity of Orizaba, of Cordova and Vera Cruz ; that he had collected the scattered remains of his Cerro Gordo foroea ; improved the brigade from Oajaca, under Gen Leon ; reinforced and remounted a cavalry force, which ho had stationed at San Andrea; and lastly, fitted for servioe seven pieces of artillery, which are at Orizaba and Cordova. fcThe result of all these labors is, according to him, that guerilla parties are already at work between Jalapa and Vera Cruz ; three battalions, organized with 1470 men of those dispersed at Cerro Gordo ; more than 900 horses collected ; a quantity of infantry equipments prepared ; and Anally 4000 men, with seven pieoes of artillery, put in movement, who would enter Puebla on the 12tn May. He tells the Secretary that he had left in command in the tierra caliente Col. Cenobio ; in the district of Cordova, D. Tomas Marin, who commanded at Alvarado when Com. Connor attacked it; iu Huutuxco, Gen. Hernandez : and in Orizaba, Gen. Teran. He announces that he himself was on his march to Puebla, compelled to that course by his extreme destitution. He has only had $95,000 to do all he has done, and thinks he ooulil easily have ten or twelve thousand men under arms, if the government would give him means. If this letter shows some energy and spirit, the second letter is replete with evidence of a contemptible, braggart soul.' He would fain prepare the way for hia entry into the city of Mexico like a hero and a conqueror.? To enable the reader to verify this, we annex a translation of the letter, written on tbe 15th May, from San Martin Tesmeluoan, seven Mexican leagues beyond Puebla towards Mexico. The town of Amozoc, so often mentioned iu it, is four leagues this side of Puebla Ahmv or Operations or the East, l Head-Quarters of the General in-Chief, \ At San Martin, Tesmeluoan, May 15, 1B47. > His Excellency the Minuter or War?I communicated to your Excellency in my despatch of the dav before yesterday. at 9 o'clock, f. M., that the enemy would pass the night at Amozoo, and that I was preparing to establish myself yesterday in thiB place with the troops under my command. The Infantry and artillery marched in reality for this place, but 1 retained the cavalry, with the intention of surprising a oonvoy of about duo wagons, which was proceeding under a cry feeble guard to join the first division of the enemy's army, and also of challenging the euemy to iuduce him to march forth from Ainozoc to a convenient ground for giving battle. The convoy to which I refer, passed the night at Nopalucan, aud 1 calculated that although it might start early, I would meet it on this side of Acajete, at a point where the ground would be favorable for the maneuvering of cavalry; but no doubt the sm&ilness of his force induced the com-' inander, from motives of precaution, to start at midnight, so that at half-past 8 o'clock In the morning, (the hour at which 1 was Hanking Amozoo in ordor to gain the publio road,) the convoy was already very near to the village, and in a narrow lane covered on both sides by trees which protected it against the attack of my troops. The enemy, fearing notwithstanding tbat the convoy might be captured, sent immediately a force of 1000 infantry with six pieces of cannon to its assistance. These troops immediately opened a fire on my column, which fearlessly oontinuod its march to within one league of Amozoc, at which point 1 determined to countermarch to i'uebla, where 1 arrived at half-past 4 o'clock in the afternoon in the best order. The whole population of this beautiful city was in motion at the entrance of my division, and gave signs of the most ardent enthusiasm. I could hardly walk, from being surrounded by thousands of citizens, who were hurraing for independence and for the Kepublio, and giving utteranoe to their hatred of our Invaders. In these moments my heart was agitated by different feelings, as I looked upon an enthusiastic people calling upon me for arras to defend themselves, giving the most signal proof of their lore for the liberty of their country, and as 1 reflected upon the responsibility of thoso who having the means had neglected to take advantage of the good dispositions of these people, the only want in this city, your Excellency, was proper men to move in the defence of the national cause. Resuming the thread of my military report, I will inform your Excellency that, although our guide having missed the road, brought us within grape shot distance of the village of Amasoc, we completely Hanked this village, showing the enemy by this bold movement the contempt in which we held him. He appeared, however, determined not to leave his strong hold after having apved his oonvoy. and both myself and my officers rode off with the conviction that the enemy dared uot accept our challenge in the open field The loss we have to deplore in this feat of arras Is three soldiers killed and one woundefi, and four horses killed. Although I was aware that the enemy was to move , very early on Fuebla, 1 ordered the division of cavalry to pass the night in the city, and at daybreak this morning it commenced its march for this plaee, where 1 also arrived this morning. -.May it please your Excellency to submit this report to nls Excellency the ('resident Substitute, and to receive the assurances ef my consideration and esteem. God and Liberty ! ANTONIO LOPEZ DE SANTA ANNA. , His Excellency the Minister of War. El Republicano of the 19th announces that Gen. Bra- 1 vo has proposed to the Supreme Government that the American prisoners should be sent off "successively and with due security'' to Tampico to be released. Inasmuch 1 ns Mexican prisoners taken at the Angostura and Cerro ' Oordo had been released without condition. This is ' the first mention of those unfortunate prisoners which 1 we reeollect to bavo seen in the Mexican papers. < The Rrjtuhlictno is again endeavoring to arouse the < fears of the Mexicans against the machinations of a mo- 1 narchlcal party. It copies, with this view, a long letter 1 from Paris, published in a Madrid journal, Indicating 1 that monarchy Is the sole salvation for Mexico. 'The c Rrpuhlicano Intimates that the agents of such a party t are still secretly at work In Mexico, and that some traces " of their operations have lately been discovered in 11 I'uebla. v The same number of this paper announces that Con- c gress bad completed its work or forming a constitution, and congratulates the country upon the termination of n the great work The constitution is described as not so 1 much a novelty and an innovation as a modification and ? improvement of the old constitution of 1814. a In the same paper of the 18th, it is announced that a c new opprobrium was about to fall on their unhappy 11 country, in consequence of a dissolution of Congress, ? which some extreme partisans of the Puroi section were '< determined to force on. Congress was compelled to ad- ? journ on the i7th for want of a quorum, four members > having purposely withdrawn to bring about this re- o suit. There were twelve deputies pledged, acncording to the Rtpuhlicmto, to pursue a like course, t to prevent there being a sufficient number 01 r, members present to promulgate the new constl- b lution, which had been adopted by a large ma- n jority. Rather than submit to the indignity of g| being thus rendered powerless,' it was said that g] the majority of Congress had resolved to dissolve, and ? published a manifesto to the nation. How this affair a was nettled the papers do not tell us; but the disgraceful ( dissension in the chief legislative assembly of the nation ?' shows the country in no state to resist a foreign foe. H In Durango there has been every symptom of a revo- g lution, but it was not consummated on the 7th of May h It had grown out of disaensions between the civil and a military authorities of the State Scnor Elioriaga, at [ the bead of the National Guard, had set at defiance the t| civil government, and declared his intention of going a out to give battle to the Yankees, approaching from Chi- w huahua, who were known to have advanced as faf as Cl San Rartolome, a town a few miles north of Tarral.? b [Col. Doniphan would have to eome as far south as far- ?| ral. before striking off for Tarras and Saltlllo. The Cl Mexicans suppoaed him on his march against Durango | ,, The arrival of Oen. Kilisola in Durango was relied J upon to put an end to the disturbances in that city. h If the town of Leon, in the State of Guanajuato, thers g, hail been a military disturbance or Insurrection, which Cl the Hrpuhlirann regards as of a trifling moment, and n| thinks It had already been put down c| The Hrpiihlicnno of the IHth tells us that the Mexloans g, were fortifying the hills or ridges of Loreo, Guadalupe f, and Han Juan, and an advanced division of Mexloans gf had been pushed as far as Rio FYleto, four leagues west a of Tuebla. The Mexicans say Gen. Worth entered Tuebla with tc 8000 infantry, 200 cavalry and a train of 400 wagons, tl and that Gen Scott loft Jalspa for the same destination bi with 2000 men and a considerable train of artillery. The Rrpuhlit one Is profoundly indignant thst fo much p| apathy is manifested by its fellow eltlsens as to the defonoe of the capital. It devotes a long article to the subject, and although we have not room nor time to re- g produce it. we Infer from it that at this time, should ( < Gen Scott advance, no vigorous resistance would be op- M posed to him. The article appeared on the 17th inst., e, and in the course of it < ongress is counselled to remove 01 its sessions to some place not immediately mcnaeed by g, the invaders. The editor also advises that a large quantity of arms, said to be unfit for immediate use, should be w removed. They may hereafter, ho eeye, he rendered Mt* ? vteeablo by tome expense and trouble. Wt aaaaxt hut ti VY YO IW YORK, THURSDAY I infer from the whole tone of the mrtiole thet the writer oonOdently anticipate* our triumphal entry into the city, for he remind* the inhabltante that if by any meane we ehould aucoeed in the deelgn. they hare the example of the New Mexican* before them, when they were subjected to the same disgrace, and sucoeeded in oovering themselves with immortal glory. He alludee to their recent insurrection; he would appear not to hare heard of its suppression. We hope there may never be occasion to repeat the same lesson in the city of Mexioo, which they were enforcing at Taos at last accounts. The departure of Gen. Y alencia from the capital, at thu head of 6,000 of the National Guard, ta unite his force* with Santa Anna's troops, was dally expected, Lift bad not taken place at last accounts Before entering t'ueblu, Gen. Worth addressed a note, dated the lath, to the municipal authorities of the city, auuouucing to theui his intention of entering on the lath and taking military possession. Should no opposition be Intended, he desired an immediate conference with the authorities, to take measures in concert for the security of person* aud property. At the *ame time he promised them that their religion should be re* pec ted in all its forms and observances, and that be would support the civil authorities in the administration of the laws. The authorities replied by offering to refer the letter to Sauta Anna. This Gen. Worth refused. Santa Anna punished the prefect of the olty for the course he took in the business, one little worthy of a Mexican, it is said. We presume he thought it better that Gen. Worth should enter quietly,and that the eitixens should be protected, rather than make a futile sham resistance.

The assent of the States of Mexico, Puebla and Michoaean, trom whose territory it is formed, is necessary to the completion of the projeot. Aoapuloo is within the limits of the new State. Our Pacific squadron is busy upon the western ports of Mexico. On the 28th of April a squadron of six or eight vessels was off Maxatlan. and a thousand men were to disembark to take the town. Letters from Mazatlan say they were making there every preparation for defence, but ir the descent Is made in as great force as Is represented, they can make no defence of much aocount. Other accounts say that the port of Han Bias, too, was menaced by our squadron, and that it was the purpose of the Americans to land and take the town. The Mexicans believe that the property seized by Gens. Urrea and ltomero, on the route from Camargo to Monterey was worth over $'200,000, but in tho hands of their commissioners it brought less than $'20,000. The , peculation is denounced as especially reprehensible, as the troops who seized the booty are represented us suffering extreme privations. TI1E ARMY OF GRN.TAYLOR. [From the New Orluans Picayune, June 1.] By the steamer James L. Day, Capt. Wood, we have acounts from tho Brazos to the 28th ult., and a later mall from the army of Gen. Taylor. Cel. Jeff. Davis's regiment of 1st Mississippi Rifles, and the 2d Kentucky Infantry, under the comnand of Major Fry, were at the Brazos on the 29th, and to sail on the following day for this port. The Kentucklans have with them the remains of Col. McKee, Lieut. Col. Clay, Capt. Willis and Lieut. Powell of their regiment, and also those of Capt. George Lincoln, all of whom fell gloriously at Buena Vista. Both regiments, Mississippi and Kentucky, were in fine health. In conversation with Lieut. Aken. of the 2d Kentucky Foot, we learn that a most deplorable duel oocurred at China about the 21st ult , between two lieutenants in the Virginia regiment. The news was taken to Camargo by Mr. Dowd, beef contractor at China, and was fully credited by all a. Camargo According to this report, the two lieutenants?one of whom was named Mohan, and the name of the other not being recollected ?fought with muskets loaded with ball and buckshot, and both parties were killed. Most sincerely do we hope there may be some exaggeration in the statement, but Lieut. Aken leaves but little room for hope He fully believes it, and it was generally credited at Carmargo. lu the first letter of our correspondent below, fears are sgain expressed as to the fate of Col. Doniphun, and even Capt. Pike. Wo published the letter as written, but are most happy to learn from Lieut. Aken. that subsequent to the date of our correspondent's letter news was received of Col. Donipbao's advance towards Saltiilo. He had gone back to Chihuahua, aud there again taken up his line of march for Baltillo Lieut. Aken left Saltillo on the 16tli ult. Before his departure he teamed from Gen. Wool himself that Col. Doniphan was no doubt at Parras, and in a day or two would be in. Hum McGofhn, the brother of James, was expected at SdlUilo on tlie lbth ult., with his wife, They were ou their way from Chihuahua. James MeOotliD. at the last aooouuts from him, was still a prisoner at Durango. We regret to learn from Lieut. Aken that ?ur correspondent, Mr. Durivago, was ill at Hallillo when he lett there. Indeed. Mr. D. mentions it In his own letters ? Wo aro happy to know that his illucss, although serious, is not dangerous. His spirits scarcely flag, if we judgo by the tone of his latest private note to us. The next arrival, wo are confident, will tell us of his recovery and of his visit to the battle field of Buena Vista, we add two letters from him: ? Siltillo, Mexico, May 11,1847. Well, I have penetrated thus far Into the country of the enemy without seeing anything like fighting or even skirmishing, or seeing an armed Mexican, save and except the unhappy looking police of Monterey and this place. 1 started from Monterey on the morning of the glorious 8th of May, the anniversary of the day when the first battle was fought on the plains of Palo Alto, and arrived here in tbo afternoon of the equally glorious Hh of May. having stopped at Passo Itinconada one night. Of all the dens it was ever my misfortune to snter. the Pas capped climax, and 1 really quite envied :he pleasure that Herr Driesbach must enjoy on enterng the cage with bis lions and tigers. The place is ptrrisoned by three companies of Col. Cnrtis's regiment >f Ohio volunteers, and a more ragged, woe-begonc set 1 lever saw. To get any thing to eat was out of the ques:iou, and there were no quarters Indoors. Maj. Butler. U. 8. Paymaster, arrived in the afternooo, and paid off :he men, and some of them immediately began to drink muscal and play cards. The night was made hideous by :he continual jangling and quarrelling of those who had Seen unluey enough to lose their money; and iteep, until the gray of the morning, It was impossible to obtain. The small party of which I was a component part left at sunrise without any breakfast, aud a ride of thirty odd miles before us. With the faint, seductive hepe that we might obtain breakfast at a rancho about twelve miles off, I regret to say, but a regard for truth compels me to utter the melancholy fact that the inhabited rancho existed only in the heated imagination of our informant, for not a particle of refreshment could we obtain until we renched a small raucho five miles from Baltillo, where wc suceeded in procuring a cup of thick coffee. Upon reaching Haltillo, I was delighted to find that the place had not suffered in the slightest degree from the occupation of our forcos. The streets wore all clean and in good repair, and in every door and at every window were senoras and senoritas. It was some high church day and observed as a fctr.. The streets were thronged with Mexicans, men. women and children, and dl rigged off in their very best. In the morning, before [ arrived, there was a grand pronession, and during the -emainder of the day there was a general rumosinj; and cavorting through the streets. Nearly ail the inhabitants >f tho city have return to their homes since battle of 3uena Vista. Ail countries have their differnt customs, ind In a strange country, to a stranger they are all inercsting. I witnessed on the afternoon of my arrival a eremony which was to me highly interesting It was he burial of a mucharhn, a small female child. My attention was first accidentally attracted by the sight of i priest clad In a large white robe, ornamented with annus emblems pertaining to the Catholic church, :oming out of one of the cathedral* procedod by a couple >f small nJtar boy* in their scarlet under robes and white nanllea. each bearing a candle branch, while the doloully discordant ringing of the bells apprised me that ometuing unusual was going on. I followed, and after . short walk, the priest enterod a small houso on the orner of a street, aud around which there were a numier of males and females. I soon beard a discordant ound produced by three fiddler* and a venerable looking dividual with a violoncello,each playing a distinct and eparate tuae, if I may be allowed to use the word, and ccompaniod by several voices in an unintelligible haunt. While this was going on inside, two men outside were hrowing rmall Mexican rockets, which exploded with a sport as loud as that of a pistol. Very soon the altar oys and the padre, preceded by the musicians, came ut of the house, followed by the corpse, borne on the boulders of four meu. The bier was composed of a bort box. having an upright cross at the head, shroudd with white muslin and covered with a profusion of rtiflclal (lowers, beautifully made, and other ornaments. In the top of the bier was a dark brown figure about igliteen inches long, dressed in a velvet robe, decorated lth gold tinsel, aud upon its head a bright brass or olden oroWn. confining a mass of long black hair. The ands of ths figure wews clasped tightly over the breast, i nd had, as well as the features, a waxy appearance ? 'he funeral procession, which was small, proceeded to tie church, where the funeral service was performed, nd there was more Addling and chaunting ; after hicb the body was borne about a mile and a half to a snsccrated burial ground, unaccompanied by the priest, ut still preceded by the Addlers and the men with rookLa Before getting to the graveyard it was necessary to ross a creek of considerable sixe, and here all the parahernalia was left. To my surprise, what I had consiured a wax figure of Hanta Ouadalupe, and which I ave described, was the poor little infant who had been latched away to join .the pure spirits of heaven. I luid not help remarking tTiat there was no expression r sorrow on the part of the parents and friends of the bildf, but it seemed to be more the occasion for rryolclng nine of the Mexicans who followed the little procession om motives of curiosity, appeared to be pleased at sing an American looker.on. asked me if It was an merican custom, and If I did not think it mucbo buenn In finding my way back to the heart of the city. I came > a beautiful grove of trees, more than a mile long, on le western side of the city, where there was about to a a Mexloau horse race. A more delightful spot could t be selected, and It was literally thronged with peole of all classes and ages?Mexican women selling cake, ulqur berr, milk, candles, and other nick-nacks, and rery thing reminding me of a gala day In the States xcept some few ferocious looking men, enveloped unimfortably close in thick blankets, the very picture of lexlcan braTOS, every body looked just as happy an 1 initiated as If their poor unfortunate country was not rerrun by the barbarous North Americans?" the de aerate sons of Washington.'* What think you was the first sight that I beheld < hsu I alighted from my horse in this plaos, after hot ride of thirty miles??Why, a Mexican with a little ' ib of Is# I snmnadlag a tin freeset filled with well ?

The weather here U not really to warm us at Monterey, and there l( generally a good breece prevailing ddring the day and nlgbt. The health of the olty la good, although there are a good many caaea of ehllla and fevers amoug some of the regiments of volunteers at Buena Vista In camp, and some few cases of small pox In the city. There la little or no news of any interest, except that a party of Camanche Indians have pounced down upon a small rtmclio about ten iniles from here, hilled several of the men. plundered the houses, and bore eff the women and children. They were said to be about thirty or forty strong. As soon as the Intelligence was re ceivuu m equnuriiQ 01 u. a dragoons were ordered to remove for tho rancho and protect the Inhabitant*, but subsequent Intelligence being received that the Camancnes bad got away, the order waa countermanded. We are yet all in the dlarlc with regard to (Jen. Scott's movements against Santa Anna, but rumor has it that the Mexicans have been entirely routed and defeated. Considerable uneasiness is felt here with regard to the safety of Col. Douiphan's command, from whom nothing authentic has recently been heard. Capt. Pike, with a small party of volunteer cavalry, proceeded to join Col. Doniphan about three weeks ago, but nothing has been beard of him since he left I'arras which can be reitod upon. Mexloan report has it that h? has been attacked and defeated; and concerning Coi. Doniphan there is one report that he has fallen back on Santa Ke. With regard to tho volunteer regiments now occupying this quarter, whose term of service is on the eve of expiring, there is not any disposition to volunteer for the remainder of the war, with tome few individual exceptions. Manv. if not a greater portion of the regiments, would he willing to remain for three or four months longer, provided they oould be marched at once toward San Luis, but without the assurance that such would be the case, 1 am told that not more than four or live hundred oould be raised out of all tho foroes here. The movements of this division of the army must depend, in a groat measure, upon (ien. Scott's suocesses, and until authentic information can be received of them tiiere is 110 telling what will be dono. I am afraid 1 forgot to mention in my last letter that lienry McCulloch arrived in Monterey a few days before I left, with Ave companies of Texas Hangers, in obedience to Col. Curtis'* call at the time of the great stampede. Gen. Taylor has declined receiving them without authority to warrant him in doing so, and they arc to return to San Antonio. I believe they were raised originally for Iron, tier protection. A young man named Morris Simmons, one of the Texan Rangers, while riding in advanoe of a train going from Monterey to Camargo, with a few companions, was fired upon by a party of Mexicans near Cerralvo, some ten days since, and shot in the thigh. He fell from his horse, and as tbe Mexican who shot him came out of the chaparral to rob him, he shot him dead with his five shooter. The rest of the party tied, and the account we have reoeived states that Simmons'* companions were carried out of reach by their horsos becoming unmanageable. His leg was amputated, but no hopes were entertained of his recovery. This young mat, in company with a companion, ran the gauntlet of lancers from Maltillo to Rincouada, carrying tho order for Gen. Marshall to march on with his two heavy pieces of ordnance. The mail is about closing, and I must conclude. Saltili.o, Mexico, May 14, 1847. The joyous sound uf the drum and fife are just now heard playing that ever welcome national air, "Yankee Doodle." Never did drum and fife give forth tbe notes with greater zest, and the whole life and soul of the musicians seem to be centered in their instruments. It is the band of the 2d Kentucky regiment entering the town on their way home, and a joyful occasion for them all ? This morning, prior to their leaving camp. Gen. Wool oame in froot of tbe ooluinn, made an appropriate and complimentary little speech, and with a portion of his staff came part way Into town with them. As they left camp they marchud by the two Illinois regiments, by whose side they fought in the battle, and both regiments were turned out aud ready to receive them. As they filed off, their couipauions in arms gave them three hearty cheers. The 2d aud 3d Ohio regiments also turned out and saluted them as they passed. They leave town in a few moments. May they have a safe return ta their families and friend, There is nothing new this morning i neglected to mention in my letter of yesterday, that a goucral order was reoeived from Gen. Taylor a day or two slnoe and read to tbe troops, congratulating them upon tue victory that bad been achieved on the 18th of April by Gen. scott's division of the army. Through the attention of Mr. Levy, U. \ Mail Agent at the Brsxos, we have been put in possession of our correspondence. It will be seen that there is little news stirring at Monterey or Saltillo, If we except the approach of Col. Doniphan's command, wbieb was expected. Our correspondent, "J. J. C.," speaks as if Gen. Taylor still contemplated a movement to ban Luis Totosi. Monterev, Mexico, May 13,1847. Here we are, pretty much after the old sort Again all things seem to denote a movement of this column, and I think, by the 1st of J une, old Rough and Ready will pack his knapsack tor Man Luis Potosi. I intend going, and have attached myself to the company of Capt. J. H. Bean. This young captain is from old Kentuck, und is a good specimen of that noble 8tate, of whose gallantry and courage Americans may well be proud. Vou may look out for squalls at San Luis. They say it is there thp Mexicans will make their final great struggle, but we will see what we shall see. The weather here, at present is as hot, If not more so, than you have it in New Orleans. AFFAIRS IN YUCATAN. [From the New Orleans Delta, June 1.] By the Llena, from Catnpeacby we have received flies of papers from that port to the l'Jth ult, and from Merida to the 11th. They oontain little of importance, excepting an order from the government of the State, in regard to the manner in which their vessels must use tn? Mexican flag during the difficulties with; the United States. The Mexioan flag is recognised as'the only one which Yucatan has a right to use; but besides it a white flag with a red and green bar crossed In a diagonal direction. Is ordered to ba used immediately under the Mexican flag, as a distinction for Yucatan vessels The people of Campeaoby and Sisal feared that the United States would not be humbugged inuoh longer with snch neutrality, and they dreaded a blockade or some other act from the squadron, which would put a stop to their commerce with foreign ports. INCIDENTS OK THE BATTLE OK BURN A VISTA. The Arkansas Intelligencer publishes an extract from a private letter of an officer of the army, containing some anecdotlcal particulars of the battle of Buena Vista On the 41st February the whole army fell back from Agua Nueva to Buena Vista, except the Arkansas Cavalry, under Col. Yell, which was detained to guard the provisions in store till the wagons could return from Buena Vista. In the evening Uen. Wool learned that Santa Anna was olose to Agua Nueva?to which place the 1st Dragoons and Kentucky Cavalry were immediately ordered, with directions, in conjunction with the Arkansas Cavalry?to hold the place till the provisions were removed. On onr arrival, at 14 o'clock at night, we found all the stores packed in wagons, except about three hundred bushels of corn. A few minutes after this the Arkansas Cavalry, who were stationed a half mile in front, fired on the advance of the Mexican army and fell back. Col. Marshall, of the Kentucky Cavalry, ordered the wagons to fall back on Buena Vista, while we waited to set Are to the buildings containing the corn, and to cover the retrevt of the wagons. I shall never forget this retreat. The Mexican lancers in full force were not five minutes behind us when our squadron left Agua Nuova?the distance to Buena Vista ten miles? the road beautiful. You will understand how we travelled when I inform you that our empty wagons made the distance ia thirty and our loaded ones in forty minutes. (Jood race horse time. ? ?

I, with dome two or three officers, rode on the ridge within three or four hundred yards of the enemy and took a good view of the elephant, and I tell you candidly, from the appearance of Hanta Anna's army, and hie immense superiority of numbers, I feared the result; but still we had old Zaeh to lead us on, and our beloved wives aud country to fight for, and I felt confident of succes That night the whole army slept on their arms; I with boots and spurs on and the rein of my noble steed's bridle In hand, laid down on a few soft pebbles, intending to sleep, but soon strains of most melodious music from the enemy's bands came floating on the evening breese. each note softened by distance, yet distinct. I was never before so affected by music?sleep was at once banished, and visions of home, and all those dear associations of tranquil life, filled my mind, to be dispelled only by the thunder of artillery which greeted the first streak of morning light and foretold to all ths struggle which ensued ? . * ' * During the fight, old Zach was near one of tho regiments of Inmntry and saw the men dodging their heads In every direction to avoid the balls, when he said; "Stand up to them, my men?don't be arraid, they will all go over you"?while speaking, a ball came whltzing close to his head and he Involuntarily lodged-continuing bis speech?'-but dodge them if you cau, it is not a bad plan." After the battle I was ordered with sixteen men to escort Maj. Bliss with a flag of truce to ftanta Anna. When we arrived within about one hundred yards of a regiment of lancers, which seemed to be the rear guard, we were halted. Maj Bliss was blindfolded and conlucted to Hanta Anna. On the departure of the major x platoon of lancers was ordered from the regiment and took post facing my platoon and within ten steps of me The lieutenant in command dismounted hie men; I did :hc same. He was a fat. good looking fellojv, wore a ih'irt sack coat, neatly trimmed with lace aud seemed ]utte pompous As he dismounted he handed the bribe rein to his orderly, and commenced strutting in 'ront of his platoon.

Donation to Harvard University. Boston, June 7. 1847. Mv Dear Sir I have more than once conversed with you upon the subject of establishing a school for the purpose of teaching the practical sciences, in this city or neighborhood, and was gratified when I learned from you that the government of Harvard University had determined to establish such a school in Cambridge, and that a Professor had been appointed who is eminent in the scienco of chemistry, and who is to be supported on the foundation created by the munificence of the late Couut Itumford. For several years I have seen and felt the pressing j want in our oommunity, (and in fact in the whole oountry,) of an increased number of men educated in the practioal soiences. Klumentary education appears to be I well provided for in Massachusetts, There is, however, a deficiency in the means for higher education in certain branches of knowledge. For an early classical education we have our sohools and colleges. From thence the special schools of Theology, Law, Medicine and Surgery, receive the young men destined to those professions; and those who look to commerce as their employment, pass to the counting house or the ocean. But where can we send those who intend to devote themselves to the practical applications of science ? How educate our F.ngineers, our Miners. Machinists, and Mechanics! Our country abounds in men of action Hard hands are ready to work upon our hard materials ; and where shall sagacious heads be taught to direct those hands ? Inventive men laboriously reinvent what has been produced before. Ignorant men fight against the laws of nature with a vain energy, and purchase their experience at a great cost Why should not all these start where their predecessors ended, and not wheru tbey began ? F.ducalion can enable them to do so. The application of science to the useful arts has changed, in the last half century, the coudition and relations of the world. It seems to me that we have been somewhat neglectful in the cultivation and encouragement of the scientific portion of our national economy Our country is rapidly increasing in population and wealth, and Is probably destined in another quarter ot a century to oontain uearly as many inhabitants us now exist in France and England together We have already in the United States* Urge body of young men who have received a classical education, many of whom find it difficult to obtain a livelihood lu what are termed the learned profeesion*. I believe the time has arrived when we should make an eff >rt to diversify the occupations of our people, and develope more f ully their strong mental and physical resources. < throughout the Union. We have, perhaps. stronger mo- ? tlvea in New England, than in any other part of our | country, to encourage scientific purauita. from the fact ? that we muat hereafter look for our main support to the t pursuit of commerce. luanufactares, and the mechanic | aria; to which it beooinea our duty, in my humble judg- c ment, to make all the appliances of science within our a power. We inherit, and are forced to cultivate a sterile V soil; aud what nature baa denied, should be, as far as p possible, supplied by art. We must make better farmers i through the application of chemioal and agricultural c science. c We need than a school, not for boys, but for young t man whose early education is completed, either In col- t legs or elsewhere, and who Intend to enter upon an ac tive life as engineers or chemists, or in general, as men of soienoe, applying their attainments to practical pur- ' poses; where they may learn what has been done at other times and In other countries; and ma/ acquire habits of Investigation and reflection,with an aptitude fur observing and describing. 1 have thought that the three great practioal branohes to which a scientific education is to be applied amongst us, are. 1st, Engineering; 2d, Mining, in Its extended sense, including metallurgy; 3d, the invention and manufacture of machinery. These must be deemed Kindred branches, starting from the same point, depending in many respects on the same principles, and gradually diverging to their more special application*. Mathematics, especially in their application to the construction and combination of machinery and chemistry, the foundation of knowledge, and an all-important study far the mining engineer, and the key to the processes by which the rude ore becomes the tenacious and ductile metal; geology, mineralogy, and the other sciences ; investigating the properties and uses of materials employed in the arts; oarpentry, masonry, architecture, and drawing; are all studies which should be pursued to a greater or less extent in one or all of these principal divisions. To establish such a school as I have endeavored to describe, in connection with the University, and under the oaru and general guidance of its government, requires buildings, with suitable lecture rooms and philosophical apparatus, with models and plans, and a place fur their deposit and safe-keeping, together with a cabinet, where i every description of wood, ores, metals, 8co. he., may be ' deposited for the use of the students. Without the above 1 appliances, the professors would be workman with- | ous tools. The University has already appointed Mr. | liorsford, Rumford Professor, who proposes to give instruction upon an enlarged plan in the science of chemistry. I have often heard Professor Horsford spoken of , in terms of high commendation, and as in all respects c competent to take charge of this important department ' of science, and to bring out the most favorable results. 1 The teetimony rendered at home to Mr. llorsford's ea- j pacitv has been very agreeable to me, and had satisfied , me that the selection made by the government of the f college was fortunate; but I have lately learned in addition to the high character given him by his friends here, that the great praotlcal chemist of the age, (Llehlg.) has , given his most unqualified testimony to tho ability and i fidelity of Professor Horsford, who was the pnpll of Karon ' Liebig for two years 1 I deem it of the highest Importance, and In fact es?en- 1 tlal. that none but first rata men should occupy the Professors1 chairs in this school. Its success depends upon the characters of the lnstructers. They should be men of oomprehensivo views, and acknowledged talents, possessing industry and integrity, with an enthusiastic devotion to the great Interests of scienoe. They should love their profession, and work in it day by day. Much teachers will soon gather around them a large number of pupils. To carry out this course of education In its practical branches, there should be the most thorough Instruction in engineering, geology, chemistry, mineralogy, natural philosophy, and natural history Chemistry is provided for. and In the last two branches, instruction might perhaps be given by the present college professors In addition to these, it would be necessary to obtain the services at stated periods of eminent men from the practical walks of life. The law school is taught by distinguished lawyers of the highest reputation The medical school by ulstlnguished physicians In like manner this school of science should number among its teachers men who have practised and are practising the arts they are called to teach. Let theory be proved by practical results. To defray the expenditures, means must be procured , for the erection of suitable buildings, (not including I dwelling houses) the purchase of apparatus, furniture, I fco., ico., and provision must be made for the comfortable support of the Professors and other teachers emplsyed For this purpose, let the student be Invited freely from all quarters, at a moderate charge for tuition Let the , numbers be only limited bytbestxeof the lecture rooms, and I cannot entertain a doubt that a large revi-n uearould v be derived from tuition fees I would suggest three per- n manent professors, vlx one of Chemistry (already ap- n pointed ) one of Knglneerlng, In Its various branches, ' and ons of Heology The support of the first is for the present time provided for Kor the other two a moderate ^ fund must be obtained, as a nuelens of a farther sum which should be added to It. to make the capital equal to that of the Hnmford Professorship The Professors in this school should depend to a considerable extent, upon ' fees It Is the best guaranty to exertion and fidelity and J ths permanent prosperity of the Institution. I will c therefore further suggeet. that each of the above Profes sor? shall receive, after all ordinary expenses shall have been paid one half of the tuition fee atlll they amount to asutn annually.not exceeding three thonaand dollars including their stated salaries And that the government k of the college pay such sums to other teachers, wb ther ?' temporary or permanent, as they may deem expedient, J and that the other half the said tuition fee be reserved | and added to any fund that may he hereafter contributed to establish and fouud the two Professorships before r mentioned i* I have now. my dear sir given you a brief and vrryimperfect sketch of such a school of soleuce as I believe the ! condition of our extensive and growing country requires, ' aud you will ask how the means are to he obtained to u carry out the plan, when we shall soon have sn appeal made to our liberality, as well as to the sense of our best ' interests, to contribute a large sum of money for the purpose of finishing the astronomical department so auspi- J tiously commenced In Cambridge This department of ' icience has already engaged the public sympathy, and I sill I doubt not be taken up at an early day,and placed n en Independent end useful poeitlon I cherish a wish w see the cbeervatory, the Mempi, wd mry laitn.
