[From the New Orleans Delta, July 6 ] The U S steamer Fashion, Captain Ivy, from Brazos 8t. Jago, the 2nd instant. arrived at this port yesterday. She had on board llfty discharged volunteers, and (luartermaster's men. We received by her the American Flag ot the 3()th ult . and the letter of our Monterey correspondent, which we give btlow The principal Items of news which we find in the flag, are the following Oen. Hopping, now in this city, proceeds immediately to Mler to superintend the formation of a Camp of instruction at that ) lace for the troops now here and to arrive out for Gen. Taylor's column. The 16th Regiment entire, is now at Camargo and will be the first at the camp. Two companies of the 13th Regiment passed up the river on Mondty ; one company is in Fort Parades, whore it w. 11 remain for the present, and two more are at the IIrazos, expected up. The other five companies of this Regiment are yet to arrive. The 10th Regiment complete, is iu camp at. this place, and will remove to the Camp of Instruction when relieved by the Illinois troops, undcrfttonil to h? on IUm whv nut Th* llu.ttit.linn nf llril Dragoons, now here, are under orders to remove to the camp, but their march la delayed, in oonscquence of the non-arrival of homes. In addition to the troops above mentioned, the following forces, mixed and to bo ruined under the recent call for voluuteqf* and assigned to (Jen. Taylor, will enter Gen. Hopping'* school at Mler as fast as they arrive Ono liegiment of luftntry from Indiana and one from Ohio ; one B.ittallon (tlve companies) from New Jersey j one Battalion (five companies) from Delaware and Maryland; one Battalion (flvo oompaules) from Alabama; one company of foot from Florida ; four companies of horse from Illinois, Arkansas, Ohio, and Alabama ; two companies of foot from Virginia, and one company from North Carolina. The troops will be cxercised in their duties at this school under C'ol.Belknap.and when th?y shall have passed through a oourse of instruction under him. they will be fully prepared to flg'jt under General Taylor's invincible banner. Mr. Craft, who was Imprisoned on a charge of shooting a Mexican, has been acquitted, and is now at liberty. .Major Ben. MoCulloch and his company of spirited boy? nave been quartered in town for several days. The Major, who is in bad health, left for Camargo yesterday. 1'hey enlisted for six months, and if not received, will return home and disband. Monterey, Mexico, June 22, 1 ?47. Notwithstanding that a long time has elapsed since I last wrote to you, yet siune that period the movement* of this division of our army have been very limited ; indeed, the small force now here would, in my opinion, preclude any active operations. There are now at this place, in garrison, six companies of the Massachusetts regiment; in camp, Bragg's battery, a squadron of Dragoons, and a company of Texan Hangers ; the remaining battalion of Virginian* leaves for Haltillo to-day. At Saltillo thero are the 2d Mississippi, North Carolina, and also a part of the Virginia regiment; also Chevallie's battalion of i'exans, three batteries of artillery, and a squadron of dragoons. The total of this force can scarcely amount to 4000 men. The Governor of the city, Major Larly, leaves with his regiment for Saltlllo, and Col. Wright, of Massachusetts, will take his place. While in power, Ysjor F.arly stopped the publication of the fionter, by competing the proprietory to surrender the press to the city government. It seems that the printing prei-s was the property of tho State of New Leon, and was obtained by tho publishers of the paper, by an order from Col. Ormsby. Every thing went on smoothly until the Pioneer commenced to expose some of the rascally proceedings of the Alcalde and Ay untamiento, who Immediately took the alarm, and demanded of the Governor that he should cause tho press to be agalu delivered iuto their hands; with which request he, in hi? zeal to gain the good will of the Mexicans, immediately complied. 1 have perceived it intimated in your paper, that'one reason for Gen.

Ho you perceive that besides being valiant In arms, the illustriouji general knows how to conquer the ladles' hearts.

The letter further said, that lien. Wool was expecting au attack. The letter is dated July 10. Had there been any truth in its reports, they would have been noticed by our correspondent, writing ten days later from Monte*y. Momterky, Mexico, June 20, 1847. I understand that (ien.

They will probably be in tho field by the latter part of August, and ready to march by September. Accounts of tho crops in the interior are very ilattering ; the wheat crop is said to be unircually fine, and corn also gives tokens of an abundant harvest. This is very cheering, as by the time a movement is made tho corn harvest will be at its very height, m^l there will be no difllculty in foraging the animals Tne army will probably be subsisted upon fresh beef on the route, to avoid the necessity of transporting salt provisions, and leviet will be made upon the surroundiug oountry. I imagine that Gen. Taylor will visit the States late in the fall, after penetrating into the Interior, and uniting with en. Scott. A Mexican of considerable intelligence arrived direct from San Luis a lew days since, and reports that Gen.

It is said that a malignant and fatal dysentery was prevailing among the troops under CJeti. Scott,produced, as was supposed, by the use of poisoned milk. Several of the soldiers are said to have died. The presumption was, that the poisonous substance was put into the milk by some malicious Mexicans A letter from Kort Leavonworth, of late date, informs us that there wa? considerable trouble in the camp of the volunteers, ocraaloned by the refusal of the company commanded by Captain Korponay to receive muskets.

[From the Detroit Kreo Press, July 0.] Several of the Eastern papers represent the coming wheat crop of this State, as almost a failure. We have taken much pains to find out the truth of this assertion, by diligence iu making enquiries of persous living in the interior, and travellers who have visited every section of the Slate. We find no cause for alarm; on the other hand, it is the general opinion, that the amount of surplus will equal that of last year. The diminished quantity in some oounties will be more than made up by tho increase In others, and the bringiitg into cultivation thousands of acres of new land.

There are no new inventions nor new constructions or qualifications of the constitutional power to be resorted to; there is no new political path to be struck out. It is simply for the people to say, whether prejudice, party prepossessions, and party opposition, shall at length give way to fair reasoning, to precedent and experience, to the judgment of the great men who have gone before us, and to those momentous considerations of publio interest, which now so imperatively call on Congress to do its duty.

An amendment was here offered by a delegate, to add to the contemplated report of the executive committee of this convention, the various reports submitted to its consideration. A delegate from Illinois objected. On tho ground that the pamphlet just circulated among tho delegates contained opinious that wore not in accordance with the objects of this convention, and from a perusal of the second sentence, evidenced not only a blunted knowledge of the principles of government, but the emanations of a blunted mind. The resolution was finally defeated. Wm. Moiki.v Hall, from Buffalo, Now York, hero presented the follawing resolutions, which, for tho present, were laid on the table.

" Resolved, That wo lurthur recommend that the said railroad may commence at some point on the line of the Missouri Kiver, and from thence ruTk westward to the I'acitlc, over territories under the jurisdiction of the General Government; and that one of the earliest measure* lu connection with the said work be, to guard the lauds ulong the line of the iproposed route from failing into the hands of speculators, to the future exclusion of the superior rights of the workmen on the rood. "I'.esolved, That the said railroad. when finished, be open to all the world, and that its revenues be kept down at the lowest rates adequate to the current expenses of attendance and repairs. In this couucction we heartily recommend the national project of George Wilkes, of New Vork, (embracing and enforcing the above views) to the favorable consideration and report of the committees of Congress to whose preliminary examination it now stands referred, and subsequently, to the favorable action ot the two branches of the national Legislature, to whom the reports of those committees must be made."
