Thereat of the tl-hermeu who could t roy ide food for thousand*, if they were emtloyed si w hat they understand, are uow engaged like agricultural laborers on the public wiurks. These works, on which 700,000 are now engaged, are-l uoat u-elea-s, and the labor is so arranged, that only one member of a family can be employed at the same time. Tlirrelbre, a man with a wile and only four children, w ho is fortunate enough to be employed, and who earns 6a a week, (above the average,) can only purchase 21 Ilia of oatmea', thus allowing half a pound per diem for each member of his family. (Each tailor in the navy ta allowed one pound of bread, reree-liiurlha of a pound ol flour, ttiree-fourths of a pound of beef, betides auger, tea, raiania, apiriu, kc , tic., for a tingle day.) The wife sua children can do nothing: no one can give them employment; whole families are therefore piningaway, and will toon d'e, unless through y our assistance th.s society will be enabled to give some of them employment.

Those persons holding under ten scree of land, have not money to buy seed, and even ifthey had, eoald not sow it, as out day's abaeure trom the public works w ould starve themselves and their families.

A train of 300 wagons arrived yesterday afternoon from Vera Gruz. and proceeded .this morning, in company with Gon. Twiggs' Division, towards Puebla aud the city of Mexico. Capt. Walker's gallant band of mounted men accompanied the train, aud during the journey had two skirmishes with a superior foree of Nlexieau lancers or robbers. The last took place at Sauta Fe, at an early hour in the morning of Wednesday last, which resulted in the complete route of the enemy, over 3#d In number, who had 10 killed and many wounded. Our men had several wounded, hut none dangerously. The 3d dragoons, who were first attacked by the laneers, while reposing In slumber, had six killed and eleven wounded. VValker.

Canaliro had been arreitod and wero awaiting their trial ?t the capital; that Gen. Valeucia had. in consequence, been appointed as the only chiol of the military forces In Mexico; and that the peace party was progressing rapidly, since it was confidently expected that ten. Herrera had been elected President. LI Jlrco hit says, that although it does not believe all these reports to be true, still there is so much said about them that they are not at all improbable. According to the same paper, the party of guerrilleroi which is doing most mischief on the road from Vera Cru* to Jalapa, is that of the Tadre Jaraula. (a clergyman.) with about fifty men. That on the night of the 33d, said party examined all the passengers that were detained at I'uunte Nocional; and as tho Padre did not see any Americans among them, retired without oausing any more injury than taking the mules and horses-and this he was compelled to do, because he needrd them to mount about one hundred men that he had ready to join his party. [If we are not mistaken, Padre Jarauta is a native of Spain, and was a partisan of Don arlos during the last Peninsular war; he was sent to Cuba, and from thero wsut to Mexico, where he has formed his guerilla eorps ) 11 appears by the same paper that a band of pttrrilltros had arrived at the town of Medellln, near Vera Crus. on the 39th ult, and were disposed to burn down all the houses, and take the Curate and Alcaide along with them after reducing" the town to ruins; but had desisted from their intentions on hearing of 9&nta Anna's arrest at the capital?and they left Medellin, promising to return as soon as they were properly authorised by the new commander-in-chief, in case Geu. Valencia should prove to have been duly appointed. The .dree lri? also learned through several persons at Vera Crus, who received information from the interior, that the peace party in the capital was divided into two parts, one in favor of Santa Anna, and the other in favor of lirrrera. who were tho two prominent candidates for the Presidency.

(From the N. O. I'icuyuuo, June S.j We have had the pleasure of an interview with Mr. Treuwltt, a merchant who was taken prisoner on tho 24th of February, in company with Lieut llarbour and some thirty men composing tho escort of the train that wus attacked that day between Monterey aud < auiargo. Mr Trvnwitt informs us that l.'rrua had with him at the time of the attack about 2001) meu. The train was nearly two miles in leugth. When the enemy approached. Lieut. Harbour formed his men in a chaparral impructicablh for cavalry. The lancers dashed by, made an onslaught upon the train, massacred the wagoners, and afterwards completely surrounded the small escort Lieut Harbour than surrendered upon terms and was taken prisoner. The party was marched off to Mexico, nnd on the route encountered bard usage, but was much better treated than the Kucarnuclon prisoners. They arrived at Mexico on tho Ittth of April, and found Major Uaiues and his companions yet closely confined in prison Mr. Tmnwltt was liberated through the interference of th? Hriti-h Minister, lie reports to us that shortly after the arrival of Lieut. Harbour's command, the American officers, nine in niutber, were let out of jail upou parole the men wer* yet closely caged on the IOth of M ..? _< .1-- n- iv- -o ..... '"i ml! UH.J. Whilst Mr.Trenwitt was at Jalapa La Vega was in that city He (I.a Vega) gave a similar excuse for his neglect of the American prisoner* his friends did here. Mr. Trenwitt. informs us that there was no foundation In truth in these excuses. He states th >t the revolution only lasted three weeks, and that Gen. La Vega was in the city of Mexico during five weeks of tho incarceration of the K.Dcarnacion prisoners in the peniteutiary of Santiago. During this lime Capt. Clay addressed him a letter In regard to the cruelties audjpriration* they were suffering, contrary to the usages ol war and the rights of capitulation, and that La Vega treated tho letter with silent centsmpt. The prisoners did not even knew their enlargement was arranged for. They were eubjected to needless humiliation and cruelty on their march to Mexico, and when there subjected to cruel prirations. Since writing the above the following letter from Capt. Heady was received by the New Orleans. Capt. H. is a personal friend efone of the editors of this paper, and his word is worth more than the oaths of ail the Mexican upologistsof La Vega this tide of Hades. When he wrote it he was under the Impression, which was general at the time, that I.a Vega would again come to tne United States:? Maxieo, May 19,1847. 1 hare learned, frem a late number of tho Jlmtrieun Eagle, the result of the battle of Oerro Gordo, and that the lire general* and thirty-lire eolonels captured in that fine achievement of our arms have boon sent to New Orleans to await their exchange. Among the former ia Clan La Vega, who will receive, a second time, the kindest treatment our peop>e and Government tan bestow upon a stranger and prisoner. That you may understand how justly the general appreciates the good treatment extended to hiiu cow and heretofore by the American*, the following facts are eowmuuloated:?All car horses were taken from us, the men walked and the officers rode ponies seven hundred miles, often travelling forty miles a day, to this city. The men suffered intensely from soro feet, and wuen a man became so disabled that he could walk no longer, the officer having charge of us would Impress a donkey for him to ride To San Luis. Lieut. ( iiurchill, seventeen men cud my. calf were in charge of Maj. Komaro y Ainela. of Ven Crus, who treated us most respectfully and kindly ? Maj. Unlnes, Capt. Clay, Lieut. Davidson and thlrtj men, with Major Borlan, ( apt. Danley. and thirtylive men, were taken to San Luis l>y Lieut. Col. Samkranino. aid to Gen. Minon. When Capt. Heurie who had enjoyed a foretaste of what was coming whilst a Mier prisoner, broke the guard and run toward our camp, this redoubtable colonel gave tht order to lance the remaining seventy unoffending officer* and men, and the lives of the whole oartv were saved by tho timely order of Capt. Clay to drop ou the ground, which whs instantly obeyed, and satisfied the officer an oicapo win not contemplated. At Man Luis they gave the officers thirty seven uud a half anil lllo men eighteen and three quarters ceuts each per day for subHlstenee. from thence to Uuerataro. one hundred and lltty miles, we wore in charge of Col. Moreno, of liuipviichy. who treated us very courteously and well, from I here here wo were guarded by one muy grand* eipitan. of no place particularly,who daily disbursed the magnanimous thirty, seven and a half cents to each ofllcor, and the life-saving three picayuues to each man, except when he sabl bis treasury was exhausted, which was three days before we got here, during which time, of oourse, we supported ourselves and meu. When the men were unable to walk, he would take the first mules or donkeys on the road, and make us pay for them at night, and by wsy ol debenture or drawback of the three bits, ho charged ui four bits each a day for the ponies we rode, which speculation yielded him a elear profit of seven bits a day, tc say nothing of the mule and donkey profits. We learned on apprnachiug this city, that Uen. I.a Vega was In command of the Vera Crua line, and had his quarters iu Mexico, where we were to be eonllued until exchanged, and this intelligence elated our hearts with high hopes of good treatment from a magnanimous soldier and gentleman, whose seuae of gratitude would reflect upon us ail the courtesy and heart and soul of our own countrymen. Vain hopes We were brought Into the city at two o'clock at night, in the midst ef a revolution, and put into Santiago, a prison for chained rulprlta and felons, numbering three hundred ; our pay increased to four all powerful bits a day, and nothing to put on the rock floor to sleep on but our blankets ; beds were called for. but could not bo obtained. News of the battle of Rucna Vista reached here two days afterwards, and they put the officers up stairs- leaving tho men where t hey now are, among robbers and murderers. I.a Vega was In the city three or four weeks, without coming to see us or sending us any word of com fort, or sending us bis aid to see If we waeted another blanket, or to see if we would give our parole and have the liberty of the city. We received no more attention from him. or any other officer In the city, except the eolonel who has command of the prison, than so many condemned assassins, sent from the interior to the capital to receive the hangman's knot. The news of Cerro Oordo came, and they gave us the liberty of the eity, after we protested against an order to send us 011 parole to l-erma, ten leagues off, beyond the mountains, towards the Pacific, and containing a real cut-throat population of two thonsand, on an island of the lakes. We have received the greatest attention and kindness from foreigner* of nil nations, Americans, English, French, Irish. Scotch, Germans and South Americans, among whom there is n strong sympathy. It is ths sympathy of common color, eommon Inngutge, nommon sentlmont. and often common Injury Iroin ton Mexicans. From several Mexican officers and families I have received the kindest treatment. Wherever we meet with an ofllcer or other person, geutleman or lady, who has been Iu the United States, we are greeted with a hearty, cordial reception, except in the case of lien La Vega. We will be exchanged in a few days, according to the assurances of the Mexicans and word received from Uen. Scott, who says be will give the earliest attention to our situation. Most respoctfully. your friend, WM J HEADY. P.

Col. Haskell (who is the author of this article, and whose motives for this assault upon me will be apparent enough by and by.) says further, that he was to ussault battery No. -J, and Col. Wynkoop battery No. 1. StTTt never was, however, intended by me to assault batteries No. 1 und 2, aud no {order was ever given to that effect. lie was uot ordered to assault battery No. 3, uoi was that battery ever assaulted. Col Wiukoop was not ordered to assault battery No. 1. The position intend ed to be assaulted wae. what was believed by both the engineers and myself, to lie the angle of thoee batteries formed by the loug liue of stoue breast-works, about 40<l yards from battery No. I. In my official report, bearing date 18th April, HIT, and prepared immediately after the battle by an officer of my staff, (for being dfsahled in my right arm I could not write,) 1 distinctly slated that the points of assuult were "the adjacent angles of batteries Nos. 1 and J.'' But in the after part of that report, for the sake of brevity, and for the purposo of designating the positions of the two assaulting forces, I speak of batteries Nos. 1 and 3, without repeating in each paragraph, the words, "adjacent angles. At this supposed angle uo guns could be seen, and none were believed to be there?though on the last day of reconnoissance, somethiogjpresentiug the appearance of one gun wae MB. Still it was believed to be the weakest point in the line of works, aud was. therefore, selected by the engineer, on duty with my brigade, fur the assault. Agreeably to my plan of attack. Haskell's assaulting force was to attack the left, of this angle,aud AVyukaop's the right, so as to engage, at the same tune, the forces upon both sides of the angle. Oen. Scott's order of battle was long, and reached me about 3 o'clock the night of the 17th. and too late lor me to have the uecessary copies of It prepared and issurd to my command. I therefere, sent for Cola. Campbell. Haskell. Wynkoop and Roberts, and at my own quarters, read to them the general order of battle, and explained to them particularly the position of the different batteries, my position foi assault, aud the order of movement for each regiment and the position to he assumed by each, preparatory U the assault. The assault wss made at the place previously deter miued upon, aud made kuown to these officers ; an. though this point turned out to be a strong work innilntinir pin),I nlpppp nf >rllllur. In,mprlip I..I ? In l. l and two more on a retired lino, all which were, to thi moment of attack, entirely concealed ami completel masked by tho etouo wall uud brush, yet, up to tha time, it was believed to be an anglo in the large rton breastwork, connecting the butteries Nos. 1 and -J That such was the position intended to be. und actual) assaulted, will conclusively appear iroin my official re ports of this battle, mude almost immediately after th battle, dated 18th and litth April, marked \ and B. un< prepared long before the uppearance of this attack o Col. Haskell's; and yet, in the face offthesc startling | errors, or misrepresentations of facts, this assault upor , me modestly professes to be a " simple statement o facts," und made solely for the purpose of justice to tht , signers of that article. Col. Haskell rannot understand why his regiment wtit pluced between Wynkoop's and Campbell's, and Campbell's between his (Haskell's) and Hubert's regiment, or the march from tho encampment. This (to him) incomprehensible order of march, which ho Bcems to think was a blunder of mine, will perhaps bo understood by him when I state to him llie object. Tha narrow pathway along which we were obliged tc march, pierced tho enemy's linn of works just at thr place selected for the assault. By iny order of attack Wynkoop's assaulting column was to form ou the left o the path, fronting tliu right side of the angle, and Has kull's assaulting force was to form on the right side o the path, and was to attack tho works on ths left side o tho angle. Wynkoop's position was further advance< , on the road than Haskell's, and, therefore, he was plaee< j in the advance. When Wynkoop's regiment reached it , position, it was to form, ana did form ontbn proper sid of the path. When Haskell's regiment had formed , it cleared the path for Col. Campbell's regiment to pns I up to Wynkoop's support The passage of t arnpbcll' regiment left the way clear for Roberts' to come for ward to Haskell's support. Thus It will be seen that th only order of inarch by which it was possible to liar | placed the regiments, with their supporting forces, ii proper position, was adopted, and it resulted In the pro per formation of each assaulting force, without the laas confusion or disorder, although there was no road but i narrow pathway. Again?Col Haskell says that I placed bis regiment ii position by directing him "torest his right on tho righi of the path, extending his left square off to tho left, sc as to form his tine of battle parallol with the centre Hold work of tho enemy.'' Ho then says that "by this ma meiivre. it will be perceived that, the ranks of Col Haskell's command were reversed, the front rank becoming the rear, and the right of the regiment Its left." Now, how it is posslbls for a regiment which Is marching by the flauk to reverse Its ranks aDd change its wings from right to left by this order, it will be difficult for any military man to comprehend. If the right of the regiment was upon tho right of the path, and the left extended square off to tile left, as ho says was was as impossible for the wings to have been reversed by that order, as it would be for a man to reverse the position of bis own arms, and equally so for the ranks to have been reversed ; for they could not possibly be reversed except by the whole regiment being ordered tc face by the rear ranks, which would have turned ths backs of the men to the enemy; and yet, Col. Haskei comes to the conclusion that by this order his wings ani his ranks were reversed. I cannot account fur such in explicable confusion of mind in a military man. To sup poso him so ignorant of the principles of military tci enee, would snow him utterly unfit for the command o a regiment; uud yet we aro forced to this conclusion or to the belief that he was so much perturbed by tier vous sensibility, that he did not know his right wirq from his left. Dor his rear rank from his front. I defj himself or any of hfl frieuds to extricate him from llii dilemma. It would be entirely immaterial by whirl flank he marched?the order which he says I did give would, if executed, place the regiment in proper positim for the assault upon the enemy's works. First, then. Col. lloskeil misstates the number of work In the enemy's Hue. and their positions. Secondly ?hi misstates the work which in fact I intended either him self or Wynkoop to assail. and the work which waa ac tually assailed Thirdly?the order of march, which h regards a* a blunder of mine, was proper, aud the onl one liy which the assaulting partiei could p'usibly read their positions?and the regiments were each placed ii the inarch with thia eipreea ohject.

Hia reply waa "The enemy i* there in strong position and force, and he muat be whipped, and 1 direct you to assault him in the frout. believing you will do your duty " If w# bad known tlie exact strength of tbi* poaitlon, wo would probably have sought some other place to have assailed him. but it ia not probable we would have fared much better. It will be seen that I treat this publication a* coming alone from < ol. Haskell. 1 do so, first, because baring met tb' communication end Col. Haskell bo'h at Memphis. I luHtantly charged its authorship upon Haskell; and lie askuuwltdged (hat he wrote it. The other officers who have signed it. I am fully persuaded, did so without reflection, and under llie impression that I had not. in my official report, done them justice. This impression on their part, it will be seen from my two official reports, was entirely erroneous. These reports not unly truly and fully set forth the strength of the enemy's works and position but they speak of the conduct and bearing of this regiment, and officers, in terms of high commendation. That this erroneous impression upon tho minds of the officers was produced liy ( ol Haskell's representations I have no doubt; first because, acknowledging the authorship of tin4 article, be must have, of course, originated it. Secondly, his excesses and indulgences while at ('amargo, causing a neglect of his regiment, Impelled mo to notice his conduct! in such way as to produce, on his part, personal ill-will towards myself, which has ever since rankled in his bosom; ami I know hint to be my i personal and political enemy. Thirdly, that Haskell has. by representatiouh to these officers, induced thsm to bei lieve that I hud done them injustice; and that their reputation and that of the regiment was identified with his, und was suffering in the public estimation. Is manifest from tticir complain! that Injustice had been done them, when, in fact, it will bo seen that my official reports (which had not theu been published, or at least, had not been seen by them.) do them full and amplejustice, both as to their gallantry and the strength of the works assailed i In these impressions I mil fully confirmed, from the fact, that t.olonel Haskell, as I um informed from the most reliable sources, presented tlii* paper to Captain Williams, who commanded the independent Kentucky company, for his signature, who indignantly refused to sign it. He also presented it to Lieut Anderson, of his regiuicut, who had the manliness and firmness to pronounce the article false, and refused to sign It. It will also be seen that Maj Kar<|Uitrhar*on, who was npon duty with that regiment in that battle, and tapt. Naylorof 2d i'enn. regiment, and his officers, whose position was on tills day. perfectly identified with the conduct and character of the regiment, but who were independent of Haskell's influence, have not signed it. There may bo, and probably are, other officers of the -2d Tennessee regiment who have not signed it. but not having a list of the names of the officers of the regiment before me, I cannot say. and as i have not had an opportunity of seeing one of these officers since the appearance or tho article,and as 1 know them to be brave and gallant men, I I am left to explain and undcrsUwd their conduct by circumstances, though they poffit unerringly to tho | truth, us I believe. | These are the iutlueneea which, iu kindness andchar1 ity, I believe coutrolled them In appcndlug their uamoo to this article lie this as it mav. it ! a*rt.ain ih? a.? i acted without duo reflection, for thay havu fnllan into the same error* as to tho number anil character of the , works. ami of what was intended to l>e attacked and of what was actually done?have fallen iuto the tame er, ror of regarding the only practicable order of inarch a* ) a blunder of iniue- -and have regarded my order for tha formation of Huskell's line of battle. a* revertiag tha wings. and changing the runk of the regiment Tbe*a 1 things they bare by their signature* testified to, with* :, out any other information than curb an they muit bar* got from Col.

I am houud, therefore, under ail the clrcum1. stances. to believe that these officers acted hastily and y without reflection, and under the influence of false (ici. presenilis product d by Colouel Hunkell. who abused their e coufldeuce, and grnlifled his owu malignant feelings to ] wards ilia, by masking, under the eorcr and influence of f their name au attack upon my character, remarkable I only for it* imbecility and absurdity, l It further appeurs from my report, that Col.

As an answer to these questions, 1 1 refer to the following portion of my detailed report:? "Upon arriving at my position for assault, I come menced the formation n{ my assaulting forces, witheut I, the loss of a moment's time I had myself placed Col. s Haskell's regiment hi position for assault, upon the left a shin of the uncle -had placed Coi.

Seeing that no alternative was left me but to retreat, with the whole command, in the face of the enemy's fire, and break up tho order of battle, and violate tne orders of the (jenoral in Chief, and thus bring disgrace upon the whole brigade, or to dash rapidly forward upon the enemy's works with the foroes which were in position. I instantly sent my aid-de-eamp. Lieut Rains, with orders to bring Ccl Roberts' regiment as quickly as possible to tho support of l ol Haskell, and directed tills last regiment to charge the enemy's works. I also sent iny aid-de-camp, Lieut. Anderson, to Colonel YVynkonp. with orders for a similar movement upon the i works in front of this position, helngnu the opposite side > of the angle Haskell s regiment dashed nobly forward, I with a shout of enthusiasm " Hence it will be soen that I the course which I took ot cliargiug the works, wae the only one left me it is mnnifest, therefore, that the effort to throw upaa me the responsibility of the failure to carry the work f assaulted at t erro Oordo. is altogether unjust Tha i, alleged errors in my orders aud dirpositions of the as saulting forces.
