AFFAIRS IN SANT\ FE. ffc'rom thti fit l.otliu Rimiihllniin of lnn*i .1 1 1 We remarked yesterday tl>?l w> failed to receive our { ! usual full correspondence from Santa Ke. by the last uiail. but supposed that nothing had transpired worthy of publication In this quarter. We find this to have been the case, so far as news is ; concerned; but a gentleman of this city has placed at our disposal a letter from his correspondent at Santa Ke, which gives anything but a satisfactory account of the condition of affairs there. lie refers to the trials fur treason, murder, and rob- i bery, which had tuken place, and says: " Fifteen persons j have been convicted of murder in the county of Taos, I and one of treason?twelve have been executed, two were I pardoned by the Executive, and one escaped from pri- i son. '* One was convicted of high treason in the county of Santa Ke, but ne was reprieved by tbe acting Governor, nod punishment will be delayed until the President of ; the United States determines on the question.1' On the , dd of May. two eases were to bo tried before the District Court at Santa Fe for treason." The writer continues?" We have a military establish- , incut wostefully extravagant to the Goverument. but which bus most signally failed of redeeming any of the promises made by General Kearny In his proclamation, j Instead of being the strong arm on which the civil an- , thoriiy can depend, to enforce order and law. and ad- | minister justice to all, the soldiery liavo degenerated i into a military mob. are the most open violators of law ! and order, und daily heap insult and injury upon the | people of the territory; and as matters now stand, the , civil Government is powerless to graut them redress. j The border Indians are daily committing outrages on , the frontier Inhabitants, driving off and destroying their j stock. Against these Indians they were promised protection i by Gen Kearny; and though we have had lor months an i entire regiment of soldiers in garrison, not ono has been : sent to tlie frontier. rii.a.huir nf ~r ? j 1 ? i w?w M..? v. ...? v..pkttiuD V* uvui|;aui>'fl UU UUV KUUW the number of their men, nor where they are to be fouud ; and they themselves are to be seen nightly in fandangoes, and even lean reputable places of dissipation.

CURIOUS MILITARY ANII RELIGIOUS FACTO. Unmranra, March 7,1847. Our little army. 1 think, is becoming infected with a mixture of religion and superstition caused by a few singular circuiustauces. which I will briefly relate. Iti coming through a mountain gorge, called the Jornada, there was not one drop of water to he found within scveuty uiiies. Our wearied animals?particularly the oxen ?became exhausted, aud sunk down, as we supposed. to rise no more. Our situation was appalling,and relief seemed to lie beyond the range of possibility. At tbis moment, a clap of thunder was heard, and streaks of lightning seen to play along the mountain?black clouds rolled rapidly up. aud the rain came down in tor- I I rents?the parched desert was soon drenelied ? the uni- 1 | luals and men refreshed, and the army moved, wonder- ] I ing and rejoicing. No rain bad fallen iu this psrt of 1 Mexico for upwards of four months, and no one expect- ] ed a drop uutii the beginning of the rainy season, which : commences about the lath of lone. (In the morning of the battle, ( of Mitchell end half a ! dozen officers were riding some distance in ad sauce of the army, who a large black wolf wa< seen galloping ' acroas towards the mountain on our left. Col M. ex- j claimed in a half-laughing, half-serious manner. " Gentleinen ' wo are certain to meet the enemy this evening It that wolf crossea our path, it is omiuous of bad luck aud he will feast on our dead bodies before morning " The men immediately reinixl up. aud every one watched | the movement* of the animal with breathless auxiety. j { tie was on the point of crossiug in frout of us. when Col ! Mitchell dashed to the left, exclaiming, " IJy , I'll | tut? the tide of fortune!'1 The wolf was beaded and driven off before us. which caused a hearty shout of triI umpb. During the battle, when a portion of our troops were ! I fall in p bark, (from some mistaken order.) the enemy ' raised a shout, and poured in u general discharge of sr! tilleiy. At the same moment, the .Mexican cavalry began to advaure. aud confusion whs beginning to show itself in our ranks. At this critical moment. Colonel M i daslt-il up at full speed in frout of tliu right wiug. (which j he commanded ) and cried nut to one of nis friends. - There's the Muck wolf about to cross our path, but, by . I'll slop him Column! forward?gallop!" The history of the batto*. if correctly writteu. will show that be did stop him! Again, when we consider the enemy's forces and positions, the Mexican loss compared with our own, it really looks as if the hand of Providence guided the whole affair !

We crossed the bar.followed by the Scorpion; a party lauded at a deserted fort, hoisted our flag and ; saluted it. Nine dismounted plocts of cannon were on i the ground, hut not a soul to be seen.

J The reeolution of the lower branch of oua city government, providing for the appointment of a committee ' to make suitable preparations, and to tender tbe hoepitail tv of the city to the President of the I nlteil States If be should extend his journey to tbe North no far M to visit Boston." cannot be passed over in sll?uce. If the Common Council understood that Mr Polk, ae President of the I uitcd States, hue determined to come to this city, it was undoubtedly their duty to originate tbe appointment ot a committee, which the Aldermen should certs! nly till, to receive the President with all proper forma and ceremonies. If etiquette requires that the freedom of the city nhould be presented to the President Inn I5"l'leu box. ou such occasions, the Council should on tb? slightest hint take, early measures to prepare tbe gift and the sacrifice. But if the Counsil do not knew that wa are to receive this visitation, they should have boon cautious about panning a vote which may look Ilka a request. We do not know that there is any antbority for supposing that Mr Polk has the intention of visiting Boston during this summer. Such an intention could only he founded upon an ignorance of the fttlingi ef (As people of Sew England; or a drtirc lit intuit ihntr ftrlingi it is certain that tbe progress of the President through our State, would be undisturbed; it is probable that his receptiou would be courteous; it is even posstlla that he night meet with soine.tiatterers who would be enthusiastic upon his advent; but we tbink no ono wbo knows [ Now Kngland cau bavc advised Mr. Polk to this step. To compel hypocrisy, to invite adulation, would be too bnd Those who have suggested this move must have baaed it upon tbe hopes for .Mr. Polk of either political preferment or private enjoyment. But bow cau be seek either here, where his partisans support him ouly on tbe ground of "measures, ot men.and his opponents could receive him only us a "President" and uot a~ u "cltixen?' ' To the latter be would bo ouly a "gold stick in waiting," and to tbe former he would tie a partisan leader.drawlng them iu a direction which tbey ieel unwilling to follow. It is never pleasant to hint to any one that ha bad better avoid doing any thing for which he has made up his mind, lu this cane we do not know that tbe President has made even a suggestion of a purpose, and we fear that to him our opiuion would be valueless Bat we think that It is the duly of somebody to say that such a visit as tbe Council seem to suppose Is in oontempluliou, is one thai our community feets ought dot to be made. If it is to be made f>r political effect?in which case our npiniou may be thought to be biaasad? we have no besltatiou in saying tbat its authors aud ltd agents will regret It to tbe laat day that thev adhere to their preseut political opinions If it Is to be made for war glorification, it is iu very bad taste. We can htrdly suggest to New blngland people, by way of comparison, any thing more absurd. Sinew tbta ought tu be said we say it. meaninguo discourtesy to any person or party to whom we have alluded. If we prevent an uuneoeaeSLry trespass upon the riglita and feelings of tbe community, we have performed the duly we luteuded. If the President of the I lilted States knawing all tha circumstances of the case, chooses to come to Boston at i this time, we trust that he may be not only furnished wuli the conveniences and luxuries which may make hia | sojourn comfortable, hut may he greeted with all cereI monies ;unl exhibitions which etiquette may hava or. daioed as the meed of his office. We advise no disre' spool, we countenance no discourtesy. But we have I higher hope, that the Pi usiilciit la too well informed to j make a trial of the pastcncii of this community. ! From Coi ncii.
