Itc., &c., &c. THE NEWS FROM OEM. SCOTT, [From the N. O. Picayune, June 23 ] The Jame* L. Day, Capt. Wood, arrived at this port wterday from Vera Cruz, whenca ih? tailed an the ltith lit. We have the Jimtrican Eaglt of the 10th inat. The !ifir nukti nt mention of any later arrival from the my above ; but Capt. Wood report* that it wan underood at Vera Crut, before ha left, that intormatlon had ten received from Gen. Scott at Rio Frio, that there an a prospect of making peace with the new govern?nt *h toon a* it became set'led; and that Oen Scott >ntidently oxpvoted tu lend iu lea* than two week* the leering news of peace to Vera Cruz. It wan supposed that Uen. Herrera wa? elected Presisnt beyond a doubt. So far Capt. Wood report*; but ir letters from Vera Cruz do not confirm thin news, id they represent, ou thu contrary. as mentioned love, that nothing had boon receivi-d from Oen.

And furthermore, we have letter* from Puebla to the 1 Inst, when Oen Scott waa there, and icaroely time id eUpNed for him to march to Hlo Frio and enter iato agotiatlons, and for the news to come back to Vera rui We are, therefore, tit present, inoredulous about lis intelligence. A large sum of money has bean found in some lauded vault in the castle of Man Juan de Uliia. It ii Dcertaln whether it belonged to the Mexloan governlent or to some private Individual. The Euglc publishes a letter giving an aocount of a re whioh occurred at Laguua on the 'JHth of May. Half dozen bouses were destroyed. The officers and men of le U. S. brig Vesuvius, with Liout. Magruder at theiT sad, rendered effloient service in extinguishing the Are. affairs in the city or .Mexico. In a packago of papers, fcc , sent to us by Mr. Kendall out Puebla. we find fuller details of affairs going on in le city of Moxloo, though still nothing later than the >th or May. Le Courritr Franeait translate) a poworful article om thu Hazonador. The greater part of it is written > show that the guerilla system will be a thousand lues more disastrous to good Mexican citizens than to I?p niuuvD ui iUD UUIIVU nbAbCB ; luat LOO IDOTlUIDie indencv of the system will be to leave the honest, wellisposed and thriving inhabitants at the mercy of lawns. needy desperadoes J and that ouch worthy inhabiints will inevitably apply to the American* for protocon, who are too sagacious not to grant it in full. To prolong the war by a guerilla system, the writer eems, therefore, suicidal for Mexico. The only other raeticable mode, he aa\ a, la the levee in masse on the ^habitant*, attacking the Yankees in front, In roar, and pon their flank*. Such a riaing, if executed with jirit, vigor, and oourage, he think* would bo successful, Ithough the Americana might gain advantages in the utaet. Such a rieing the editor fully approves of, and still adocaten, but it will never take place, he says; not beausu it is Impossible in itself, but because the Mexicans o nut heartily desire it, and have n* intention of making .. Such being the caae, he calls upon his countrymen ot to solicit a peaoe, but to listen to the overtures hlch may be made to them. He writes with great iearncsa and force, and bad w? room wo would reprouee the article. Suoh appeals must tell powerfully in h'xico for peace. The people are unused to them. The rntlgnation which General Rincon tendered of 1.4 nttlce, us second In commaud to General Bravo, had ot 1 ecu accented by the government on the 29th ult. In the Courritr f rancais we find an extract from the luteli/t it la Itemocracia, the organ of Farias It is a itty, cnuHic review of the defence of 8anta Anna ?t crro Gordo. made by 8enor Jimenez. We can understand that Santa Anna finds his position ncouitortable with a few papers of this kind as witty h remorseless. pounug hot xiiot into him all the while, nd he uuable to defend himself by pointing to a single ct of successful gallantry in thia war, by whioh to derecale the contempt exoited against him.

NEWS FROM MATAMUKAS. | From the New Orleans Delta. June 33 ] By the James L. Day yesterday we received the Mataloraa flag of thu Ititb lust 1'ne Flag says that a ?rty of geutlemen, whilst on a hunting excursion on londay, found a Dragoon'* uniform about two miles outh of thu city. The owimr had evidently been murured; a charge (apparently buck snot) had entered just uder the shoulder blade, immediately below which was triangular perforation, evidently from a bayonet. The aiue bad been carefully cut off of both the inside of the .illar and linliur of the Hleeve .

It as not stationed at i'alo Alto. We do not know its hereabouts. If it crossed the Rio Orande at all. it was >uiewhere in the neighborhood of Loredo. The Flag gives the following, likely to be true, but ood even as ajeu d'ripritt? 'i he following scene between Arista and his generals ctually took place; the description was derived from a i ntieman high iu the confidence and esteem of the Ulef actor, but whose name we are not permitted to lention.

COnRESPONDKNCIA PARTICULAR, DEL DE OOB1F.H.NO DE CHIHUAHUA. Chihuahua, de April I, de 1847. After a maroh of fifteen hundred miles across plains and rivers, mountains and sand hills, a little party of adventurers from tho " Army of the West1' gained, what they had so long and at so much labor, cost and time striven for, viz.: a hostile meeting with the Mexicans. On the 38th of February we opened the attack on their troops by a galling Are from our artillery, and after a hot engagement of three hours gained a brilliant viotory piling many of them around their redoubts, and scatterin? the rest to the four winds. As 1 have given all the particulars to a paper for publication, and as you will see twenty different account* of the battle, 1 will not trespass upon your time by recounting the events of the day " to you.

We fouud him unaffectedly frank, possessing an earnest energy, which is no doubt characteristic of the whole rrglment of those western braves. lly the way, it may sound something like a misnomer, but still is not leu the fact, that the flying artillery of the expedition had no other agency of transportation, either in the battle or out of it. than oxen? ?ot the swiftest messengers of .Mars it must be admitted; worse thun Mrs. Bardell's slow coach, by a long odds. In one instance, in the preseuce of some American officers, the British Consul was Very eloquent in his eulogies of the Mexicans. They were a most brave, enligh tened.and a particularly magnanimous and humane people, who. in their engagements with an enemy, scrupulously observed the tules of war. anl that forbearanoe to a vanquished foe, dictated by the more enlightened ethics of the preseut day " Axe you done now. stranger." said the captain of a company, raised in the western part of Missouri, when he thought be hud heard him out. " I itoi dene,'' said the Consul: " I will however add, that my statement Is unanswerable ." "Weil, if tbi.4 here don't answer you;" said the young volunteer. " Tom Benton himself could not stuinpyoul" and he held up the black flag which the enemy unfurled before going into the battle of Sacramento, which showed the murderous designs of the ^Mexicans. The representative of Queen Victoria said nothing though he evidently thought there was something in the emblematic eloqueuce of the Misaourlan. Our informant states to us that the British Consul at Chihuahua, made himself offensively officious, if he did not culpably compromlt himself It was known that he gave aid aod comfort to the Mexicans, in furnishing them, to some extent, with the siueers and munitions of war. The Consul thought to keep the American troop* out of a public building In Chihuahua, which a party had been ordered to enter and examine The officer in command told him that his orders were to enter it. and enter It he would. 1'he Consul replied that if he would be at the risk of incurring the hostility at his. the British, government, and he officially warned hliu of the fact The Vlissourlan said that at the risk of incurring the hostility of the British Government or that of hell Itself, the nouse should be opened He ordered up a 24-pounder to blow It open; but before it arrived, some of the men had climbed up to the top of the building, down inside, and threw the doors open. The Lleuteuant Colonel of the Regiment is Mr Jackson, as brave a man as breatnes, but one who makes no pretensions to a knowledge of the science of war. In going into the battle of Saarainento Lieut. Col. Mitchell, who had been detachedtrom Price's command on special duty, was present. " Look here, Mitchell.'' said the gallant Jackson, "you hold the same rank that I do. 1 know you can tight as well as I can, and 1 know you can order better I resign you my command during battle, for 1 prefer golug Into the ranks, and having a few cracks out of Nancy (his favorite double-barreled gun) at thoae yellow boys on horseback yonder," Lieut. Col. Jackson would accept of no refnsal to this arrangement, and it was adopted. He soon tood down his man, and soon after?it is not known how many When the battle was over, they were going among the wounded, when on* of the men remarked?" Why, Colonel, this fellow here looks like that first fellow yuu shot." " Well, he does, that's a fact!" said Lieut. Col. Jackson. ' I had fifteen buckshot that time in Nancy; see if there were as many put into bis body." The man examined, and found the marks of fourteen buckshot in the Mexican's body. When the despatches of the battle were about to be sent to Washington. Lieut. Col. Jackson was called on . for hi* report, lie said he never thought much of reports,^ I no how?he sdways went in for the reality. They might say to the Secretary of War for him. if they chose, that at Sacramento the Mexicans oaurflit hell. MILITARY MOVEMENTS The steamship Alabama left last evening for Vara Cru*.

I have just received the account of a wholesale murder on the Plains, perpetrated by Indians. My informant ia a gentleman from Westport, Missouri, and for my own part I do not entertain a doubt of tips correctness of tbe statement. He derives hla Information thus: ? There was a Delaware Indian by the name of Nabcoma, (a son of the celebrated chief of that name) who was found by Col. Price, a prisoner at Taos, when that place was taken laat winter. This Indian waa liberated, and some sis weeks ago started to return to bia people who live on our western border. A few day* since, he reached home, and reports that when near the great croeaing of the Arkanaaa, he fell In with a large baud of Indians, composed principally of I'.amanobes.

June'20 J The circumstances undor which the following letter waa reoelved by the editor, are regarded aa a warrant for Its publication. Wa felt it our dutv, when the first demonstrations were made in favor of Oencral Taylor for the Presidency, to dwell upon the subject at considerable length. We were desirous that some of the t,ugg??tlons contained In our artiole should meet the eye of General Taylor, and therefore enclosed it to his address, with a rew words or reference to our position as a journalist. In reply to that communication, we have received the admirable and significant letter, which wu take pleasure In laying before our readers. Hi.adhuahtkks Army o? Occi-ration, } Camp near Monteroy, May 18, 1847. ? Sir?1 havo the honor;to acknowledge the receipt of your letter, with the enclosure of your editorial, extracted from the " Signal " of the 13th April, At this time, my public duties command so fully my attention, that It is impossible to answer your letter in the terms demanded by its courtesy, and the importance of the sentiments to whioh it alludes; neither, indeed, hare I the time, should 1 feel myself at liberty, to enter into the few and most general subjects of publis policy suggested by the article in question. My own personal views were better withheld till the end of the war, when my usefulness as a', military chief, serving In the field against tue common enemy, shall no longer be compromised by their expression or discission in any manner. Kroin inany sources 1 have been addressed on the subject of the 1'residency. and I do violence neither to myself nor to my position as an oflloer of the army, by acknowledging to you. as I have done to all who liavft alluded to the use of my name in this exalted connection that my services are ever at the will and call of the country, and that I am not prepared to say that I shall refuse if the country calls me to the Presidential office. but that 1 can and shall yield to do rail that doc* not come from the vpontaneou* action and free will of the nation at large, and Told of the slightest agency of my own. Kor the high honor and responsibilities of such an ottice, 1 lake this occasion to Ray, that I have not the slightest aspiration; a much more tranquil and satisfaotory life, after the termination of my present duties, await* me, 1 trust, in the society of Uiy family and particular friends, and in the occupations most congenial to my wishes. In no case can I permit myself to be the candidate of any party, or yield myself to party schemes. With these remarks, I trust you will pardon mc for thus briefly replying to you. which 1 do with a high opinion and approval of the sentiments aud views embraced in your editorial. with many wishes for your prosperity iu life, and great usefulness in the sphere in which your talenU and exertions are embarked. I beg to acknowledge myself Moat truly and respectfully Vour obedient servant, Z. TAYLOR, Major General U. S. Army Jamcs W, Esq , Cincinnati, Ohio. The article, to whlon reference h is been made, was published In the Signal of April 13th, and is as follow*: We perolve, In various quarters, thn nomination of (Jen. Zacliary Taylor for the Presidency. So far as such a demonstration U the merb transport of military enthusiasm, or the trick of political faction, It would be unworthy of notloe, but we think it evident that this movement of the public mind has a much higher character?and grows out of a conviction that (Jen Taylor hai displayed an energy and wisdom of conduct, and a modesty of demeauor which ar.< as requisite to the deliberations of a cabinet as the plau of a campaign It is a great mistake to suppose that the people are bliuded iu their political preferences by the bare faot of military achievement ? It was the popular impulses, aud the stern honesty of Andrew Jackson, which aroused the sympathy and trust of the nation, and we predict that, whatever skill or success may attend tha march if Gen. Scott to Mexico, he will never excite the attachment or confidence which follows the hero of 11 uena Vista, We are not surprised, therefore, that ardent spirits are calling for the sword of lien. Taylor to unt the Gordiau knot of political Intrigues. But it Is a far dllferent question, whether his nuine and tame shall be made an instrument of mere partisan warfare. In this respect them is a distinction, which we are confident Gen Taylor will be among the first to perceive aud act upon, and which we hope to illustrate in the few remarks that we feel constrained to make in reference to existing and future agitation of this subject What an enviable rank in the eyes of the world, and the hearts of his countrymen, Oen Taylor now holds' ?

Affairs In Canada. | From the Montreal Herald. Juno 28 ) We have little to reoord in the political world, beyond what will be found in our report of the proceedings lu Parliament. Attempts have been made in both Houses, by her majesty's opposition, to throw her majesty's Canadian cabinet Into a minority, but with equal waut of success. In connection with this subject, we may mention that the ministry have laid on tho tableof the House a translation of certain correspondence which passed between them and Mr. Caron. the late Speaker of the Legislative council, relative to the reconstruction of the ministry, so as to admit some gentlemen onjoyiug the confidence of the French Canadian population to the Executive council. The course of the negotiations, judging from tuis correspondence, i??mn to nave oeen tms: i.oru r.igln limt addressed a memorandum to Mr. Curon, requesting hi* advice as to the best menus of forming u i coalition ministry, containing gentlemen who have the 1 confidence of tho t rench t anudians; Haying that he desired no sacrifice of principle; but expressing hi* hope that personal and party differences would, if any Mich existed. give way to patriotism aud the public good.? ' Upon this basis Mr. Curon entered upon the negotiation, and iu order to bo quite sure of hi* ground, he propound several question* to the ministry, among which was this: Whether there was any person whom It would be do ! use to propose on his side' He wu< answered that there , was no objection to any person It was then ai ranged that, as the cabinet is composed of heyeu member*. three | gentlemen from Upper ( unadu should he nanxu], au-1 ! three from Lower Canada; the seventh place being the Provincial Secretaryship, occupied by Mr. Daly, to be filled up afterwards by the Governor General.with I he advice of the six. This seems to have been understood ai n bargain on both sides; but, suddenly Mr <nroii?iguiiled to Uie ministry that they must exclude ?<r Italy from any participation iu the J that tie d four persons who would then Join the Government ? As the whole affair was based upon the rejection of per{ soual or party dislikes, and still farther, as the seventh member of the cabinet was to be the choice of tile two I parties, this, of course, ended the business. Since the oomuieucement of the session, however, Mr. Carou lias stated that, iu consenting to take ofljee with the conservatives of Upper' aoada. he fully expected to paV? ih. way for the return to power of their opponents, the Upper Canadian liberals, wi.h whom the Freucll had all along acted. So that, when he had got his majority of four in the council of seven, the first tiling woulj have been to oust the colleagues with whom he professed to co-operate Yet, though the declaration was made in the face of both Houses of Parliament, fur the Assembly had adjourned, aud most of its members were below the bar of the Lpper House?Mr Caron's friends still clamor about what they oall the iu?incerity of miuilters Beyond these occurrences, little lias been doue of public interest in either branch of the Legislature; but a great number of private bills have fwen introduced, and advanced one or nlore stages AmoDg these are several acta, for allowing banks to iucrcaso their capital.
