IK rom the New Orleans Picayune, July 9 ] The Diaiio del Oobierno of the 36th ult . contained the proclamation of Gen. Kearny to the Californlan*. from wbioh It if copied into El Nat ional, the official gazette of the free and sovereign State of Puebla, published at Puebla. It Is tbe first official token we have seen that (Jen. Kearny had been allowed by the naval officers on the PaoiQc station to enter upon the discharge of hia functions an Governor. We append a translation of his addreM. Proclamation to thk Pkoi-lk of California. The President of the l/nited States having devolved upon the undersigned tlie civil government of California, he enters upon the discharge of hl? duties with an ardent desire to promote, as far as possible, the Interests of the country aud well being of its inhabitants. The undersigned is Instructed by the President to respect and to protect tbe religious institutions of California, to take care that the religious rights of its inhabitants are secured iu tbe most ample manner, since the Constitution of the United States allows to every individual the privilege of worshipping his Creator in whatever manner his conscience may dictate. sons and property of the quiet Mid peaceable inhabi tants of the couutry, against each and every enemy, whether foreign or domestic; and now, assuring the CalifornianB that hi* inclinations. no lens than his duty, demand the fulflluien t of these Instructions. he Invites them to use their be<t effort/* to preserve order and tranquillity, to promote harmony and concord, and to maintain the authority und efficacy of the laws. It is the desire and intimation of the United States to procure for California us speedily an possible. a free <government like that of their own territories, and they will very soon iuvite tlie Inhabitants to exercise the right* of freu citizens in the choice of their own representatives, who may enact such laws as they deem best adapted to their interests and well being. Hut until this takes place, the laws actually iu existence, which are not repugnant to the Constitution of the United States, will continue iu force uutil they are revoked by competent authority: and persons iu the exerulfo of public employments will for the present remain iu them, provided they swear to maiutaiu the said Constitution and faithfully to discharge their duties. The undersigned by these presents absolves all tho inhabitants of California of any further Allegiance to the Republic of Mexico, and regards them as citisens of the United States. Those who remain quiet and peaceable will be respected and protected iu their rights; but should any one take up arms ngalust the government of this territory, or join such as do so, or instigate others to do so?all these he will regard as enemies, and they will be treated as such. When Mexico involved the United States in war, the latter had not time to invite the Californians to join their standard as frieuds, but found themselves compelled to take possession of the eouutry, to prevent its tailing into the hands of some Kuropean power. In doing this there is no doubt that some excesses, some unauthorised acts, were committed by persons in the service of the United States, %nd that in consequence,some of the inhabitants have sustained losses in their property. These losses shall be duly investigated, and thoie who are entitled to indemnification shall receive it. Kor many years California has suffered great domestic convulsions; from civil wars, like poisoned fountains, have (lowed calamity and pestilence over this beautiful region. These fountains are now dried up; the stars and stripes now float over California, and as long as the sun Bhall shed its light, they will continue to wave over her, aud over the natives of the country, and over those who shall seek a domicll in her bosom; and under the protection of this flag,agriculture must advance, and the art* and sciences will flourish like seed In a rich and fertile soil. Americans and Californians ! from henceforth one people. Let us then indulge one desire, one hope; let that be for the peace and tranquillity of our country. Let us unite like brothers, and mutually strive for the improjement and advancement of this our beautiful country, which, within a short period, cannot fail to be not only beautiful, but also prosperous und happy, Given at Monterey, capital of California, this 1st day of March, of the year of our Lord 1817, and of the Independence of the United States the 71st. 8.

By order of Maj. Gen. Taylor W. W BLISS. A. A. O. The battery of CRpt. Washington will accompany said division. To Maj. Samcki. J. Siii'tt, Saltillo. We give the above as we find them It is the first time we ever beard that (leu. Taylor had issued positive orders for a march upon San Luis , therefore we doubt their genuineness. We have a striking correspondence between General Canalizo and the Governor of the Slat* of fuebla Notwithstanding the disgraceful bearing of this com rnauder of the cavalry iu the battle of Cerro Gordo, Santa Anna has remained steadfast to him. Tresident Anaya removed him from his command, hut Santa Anna's Government bas conferred upon him some dio tutorial powers in the State of 1'uebla h irst, martial law is proclaimed in the State, in c?use<|uence of the presence of the American army in the city of 1'uebla. and next I aualizo is authorised to dispose of the revenues of the Stale, as well as those of the territory of Tlascala. to be applied at his discration to the exigencies of the war. The tfoveruor of the State, upon being notified hy Canaliio of the powers entrusted to the latter, replies to him on the 23d of June with spirit. 1'he Government of the State, he says, Is indignant at such u delegation of authority, aud regards it as unconstitutional and revolutiuuai-y - a* no attack upon the sovereignty of the MatHe argues the question with point and force, anil then announces tbat Instead of yielding to tbu dnnand of a surrender of these powers, they ha?? uppointod a committee to confer with the Supremo Government upon the ({rave matter* involved.

Washington found himself at the head of but a handful of meu, and these without shirts or shoes, or provisions, and then a*ks? What would have been tbe result bad the Americans, disheartened by these reverses, then abandoned the conflict ? Clearly, he says they would have been to this day colonists of kngland He applies this illustration to the circumstances of Mexico, and to the assertion of this principle, that reversal are nothing, whin a nation has resolved not to succumb before her enemies. Again he urges that the very reverses of Mexion render peace at present impossible. That were she to yield after repeated defeats only, she would b? disgraced in tbe eyes of all I Christendom. He defends his countrymen from the charge of stupid obstinacy, by citing tbe uniform answeis of the Continental < ongress to the British Commissioners, that they would enter into no truco until the British Government should withdraw its fleets and armies Why, he asks, should history oelebrate this reply as grand aud dignified, when made by tbe luited Stales, and stigmatize it as stupidly barbarous on the part of Mtxico ? Cursorily stigmatizing the mission of Atoclia as a new and unprovoked insult, he passes on to discuss tbe terms on which peace is possible. These conditions are, he says, the loss of Texas, of part of Tamaillipaa, Coahnila and ( bihuahua. and of the whole of New Mexico, besides some flfty or sixty millions of expense* incurred by th? Coiled States tu the war. To this he answers ? A u(i who will Hiitwy Mexico for the twenty million* of duties she lias lost tu out> year, the vast expeust-s she has incurred in arming her troops, for the losses which her peaceable citizen* nave sustained in consequence of the H.iltUry occupation of foreign forces. for the bombardment and duHlrui-tiou of her ?. ities. for the misery mil orphanuge of thefamilba of thousand* of citizens who have perished siuce the war began And again he aeks:?" Supposing that Mexico submits to lose all thin and to pay all that in demanded, with what i* she to do thia? What treasury, what revenue, what time would be sufflciunt to satisfy thin debt? With what principle of justice and legality can xhe impose new contributions upon a people already ruined by civil and fore:gn war?" " You yourselves see,"' he oontinue*. ' that the supposition of peace la not possible; that it is better for Mexico that the conquest should be consummated, that her cities should Im laid in ashes, than to enter into terra* which would evidently reduce the Mexican nation to u condition worse than, it held as a colony of Spain.'' We regard it as a favorable pympto n that the Mexican mind has become so subdued that it Is willing at last to reason calmly and with dignity about the war and iu termination The discussion before us in the papers is conduct'd with the courtesy of diplomacy, and more of the frankness It i* highly interesting, toy, aad we may heieafter recur to it.

A few days since I had the good fortune to be present , the Seneca dance, during a portion of the time in hich it was Carried on ; and I have concluded to give 3U a partial description of what occurred under my ire. It happened at the fleueca council house, ut a dls men ui ifii unweive nines ironi mm point, ill' suuaiiou f which ifi exceedingly beautiful. A large prairie ex uds itself on one side of the council ground westward eyond th<* keenest night.

On the other side of thin ri er. from the pnirie. a huge blulT uprears its rocky front om the water's brink to the height of three or four hun red feet; and out from Its side pours a mn.it beautlfu trxim. sprinkling with its dear, fresh drops, the moss] anglngs around and above It. playing an eternal an ln*iii to whatever spirits may delight in Its music, au< ion mingling its current farther down with the trans rircnt, wave* of the rlvnr I.urge cedar trees, spruni om the crevices of the rocks, hang their heads fron lit edge of this bluff, as if bowing to the mighty musii r thd river's roar.

A1 omul the inside against the walls are benches, con' ructed so as to form an immovable part of the house It If, on which the people pit, when not otherwise en igcd On the l.tth of this nv nth In tlie morning. I rod* rorto the council ground, for the purpose of witnensinf hatevur might be done there At my arrival, the flrsl ling I noticed r.f any Importance was a white dog. hunj 1 the neck.a few yards from the house, on a poladrivet ito the earth, and fifteen or twenty feet high lie win corated In the finest possible style, having ribbons o iriou* colors tied almut his neck, feet, and belly, and ? rge bunch of feathers tied to Ills tall. He had beer lied the previous day by being smothered, for It is ? irt of their most religious care not to have a stain o; lood visible on the auimiil, and not a drop wasted fron is budy. This was the acrittne appointed to atone foi le sins of the nation, during the last year, and wai migiBg there ready for the offering. Tlie day was uncommonly clear, and the sky, earth ml sir. refined soft as the Imlmicst hours of May On lis account, a goodly concourse of whites and heroees were preseut, It being the duty of ths Henecas of mrse to appear 'l'he most of these were landing isurely about or lounging laxily In the sun. 1 observed >ine unite pretty women among them When I entered the house. I noticed that preparations ere making for something about to be performed, and >on found that the young men were going to play a ?me. The nature of this game I could not describe, as did not understand It However, a sort of bowl cut It of Wood, with red line* inside, crowing so as to ftirui mr angles at the *aine point, was placed upon a Huflalo till Threo coffee not*. painted rt"l on ?n* side and lack on the other, were put Into tills howl, and two feliws sal down to It on the floor, while the other* stood round them l.at-h one would jar It alternately, by hich the nut* were thrown Into different locations ? s luck would come or go, loud screams were uttered bove the general whirling sound kept up by those whe ere standing around, almost without an interval. A 4 [ERA groat d?al of iuUrest wit* manifested 1u tbU gauie through its variation* anil result Ad hour after this, the prelude to the dauce row- I nienced, and was carried on lu the following rnanue*A young fellow of fine appearance. with feathers on Tt._ head, and paint on hii face, stepped out upon the floor, and another one after him. who buokled round the first a leathern belt with brtas beUh fastened upon it Jle. In turn. stooped to the second, and fastened a string of deer hoofs to his uncle* A third one came out with deer hoofs faateuud to his ancles also ; likewise, a fourth, fifth, sixth, and so on.until tweuty or thirty were on the floor. All these were painted, and dauced before a drum of Scneca manufacture, which gave a steady. monotonous sound, broken at times by keen, startling yells ? Their gestu-es were extremely wild Sometimes they would point to the earth, sometime* low?r 1 each other, and uguiu toward the sky ; their countenances all the time wearing an expression which it would be impossible to dascriho They continued this part of the prelude ui/'un j i uu uvui /liter II ??a CUOriuUVU. u speecn 1 ?#' made by a middle aged man. relating. ax I supposed, to what was yet to be done After thin speech wan tiniibi i a very utd man arose. | uud taking up a gourd tilled with shot and having a long feather fastened to the end. handed it to a little boy , whom be culled out, and to -.vhom lie delivered a whorl speech Tile little fellvw Hat down uu a bench set out for that purpose hefure tho drum nieu. So soon kg the drum began it* beating, accompanied by oue or two voices, the youngster who was charged with the speech si rung to his feet und. rattling the gourd veherueutly against the ground, in a few momenta returned to hi seat Other rattling Instruments were given to little buys standing around, by speeches from the old men on presentment, who took their seats by the first, and .10 soon a* the inu- I Hie began, capered over the Iloor in numerous funny attitudes. This continued for fifteen or twenty minutes. After a short time, six men arose with hatchets in their bands, whose handles were mounted with silver, and stood before the drummer three abreast One of them held in his hand at the same time a singular instrument, viz : a slender stick about a foot long, slit at the eud. iu which was stuck a rouDd still piece of paper fringed with piuk ribbon, which he held elegantly These all wore eagle feathers in their hair and had their faces painted with black and red lines. s?me narrow and others broad, under the eyes and on the cheeks. They danced before the drummer steadily at first and afterwards wit h quicker steps, changing places with great rapidity .and screaming once iu a while like hungry panthers This performance was closed by an old uian who struck 011 a beam with a stick, in order to command silence; when the old fellow made a long "talk."' Other performances of a kindred character were gone through with, closed each time by Some venerable father, who thereupon delivered his peech. Orcat respect wa* shown to the old men. And here, it would be as well as anywhere else to say. that not n drop of spirituous liquor?tnat bane, that evil.that destruction of the ludian race- was allowed 011 the ground The prelude being finished, the dance itself was begun by the women at sun-down, who danced around two of threo fires built in a row through the length of the building? they moved one after another in a circular line. The musio was faster than before and much louder.made by the men alone. The women were perfectly silent bending their heads towards the ground with the utmost appareut humility. They danced with their feet close together, and scarcely lifted from the ground; slow at first, then faster; sometimes back to back ; sometimes face to face.and again side to side I could see at glimpses some quite pretty feet, really small aud delicate. This part being done, the men joined with them, and they all danced together around the three fires,their po anion oeing ursi a man. aecoud a woman, third a man, fourth a woman, and so throughout, 'l'hin (lance required numerous variations, lome of a very graceful character, especially where the men turned and faced the women, with light aud eany movemenU. A wild song was sung by the men during this portion of the ceremony, Interrupted at times by astounding yells. The women were dressed all alike, that is In the style, having huadcd moccasins on their feet, ttnely-dreised deerskin, or broad cloth ''leggins,'' a piece of cloth about two ynrds wide, and several yards long, wrapped around their waists, aud over this a calico frock, ruffled at the bottom, and extending within a foot of the ancle. Over all a line piece of silk or other goods was thrown. They wore numerous ornaments, and had their faces painted with red The men were dressed with shawls around their heads, paint upon their laues. beads on their ueckt. riugs on their tlugers and in their ears. I noticed only one mail who had a ring in his nose. They wore lej; gins the same as the women, only they were much larger and looser. Their shirts, made of cotton or liuen. hung down over the l"ggins, and their feet were covered Willi moccasins, some beaded, others not. Their outside garment was the hunting-shirt," made differently trom that of almost every other tribe, having a waistband in it, which isseldom the case with Indian dress. I must here remark the clfect whioh paint has on the Indian's countenance. It gives the men a wild and tierce expression, and to the women a look of (what I may call) interesting pain. Dances of a similar character to those heretofore described, were carried on until about 1'2 o'clock at night, when the wizards, as they are called In English. entered, one at each door. Their first appearance was rather frightful, but soon changed to the ridiculous, on closer examination. The men, who performed this part, had their bodies bare to the waist; and. on their faue a shuck-inask was fastened, with a tongue hanging out. on which a little bell was suspended, that rung musically They also had short tails, with small bells fastened to them In this manner rigged, the wizards danced like tope around the fires, first here, then there, for a considerable time, to the Infinite amusement of spectators. Anon they would leap into the air,then down again, and pitch ..1 ...... l,..f lllr.. i.l.l .?li I.IW.MI I. their complete satisfaction. they both sprung through the same door into darkness. ami disappeared. Dancing continued until twoo'ciock in thu morning ol the 1-llh.itnil ceremonies ended fur the time. All tin Sonecas then retired to their respective camps for rest and I wandered forth beneath the stars to meditate ol the long studied themu?whence thu red man s origin and where bin destiny ' Here wan a small natiou. scarcely enough to constituteanamu. dwindled almost into nothing and living tar in this western land,having departed from their ancestral home, hallowed by ancestral dust.

Mow long will it De befure these ceremonies are all ended forever? How loug before the last Seneca Indian shall hare sung his last song, and perished from huiuan sight' Not long. No, not *mg About twelve o'clock on this day, a game of ball begant in which both women aud men. and boys and girls joined The ball was thrown high into the air, and thu struggle was then, who should succeed in carrying or ihrowiug it beyond a certain stake, set up in the ground for that purpose. The wrestling for the ball between the young uieu and the women was singular indeed for a civilised age, yet the former were exceedingly tender in the haudiing The Hctivity. grace, uud fawn-like speed 1 of the girls were beautiful to sue. This game being terminated, an old man walked backwards aud forwards, talking in a low, serious, aud gutteral tone for some time Boon after tbis the wizards appeared again, ami I drove the assembly into the house. They were scarcelj seated before two of the most hideous visages by way ol mask. Unit I had ever conceived of. made their appear au?e The owners of these masks were destitute of then usuul clothes, excepting the Icggius, which were old an< dirty. They wore large buflalo skins wrapt around then forms, anil tsslened around lliein with .l ro.'irHt* liin/i be It. and In such a manner as to produce an ugly huui| to their backs. These masks were made of soinethini pliable, and painted red all over, with the exception o theeye-holes, whose edges were yellow. I .ong, coarse home hair hung over their forehead* in a loose and lior rid manner, through which their eye-ball* gleamei ^ like Ore.

At half-pant one in the afternoon dancing oegun in the same manner a? on the 13th. and continued until nearly night, at which tiine I left for home On the 16th I went over to the council house again The dancing was conducted with scarcely any variation from the ceremonies of the lith to the hour of 1 o'clock in the afternoon, at which time auother game ol ball wan played, in which the men only were engaged A? before, there was a goal to be paused, and hard struggles were made for the ball, fireat interest was manifested by the parties In the game, but it was not ho well calculated to excite spectators as the) herokee ball play or that of many other tribe* It was altogether toosim pie to suit Diy eye and I have only notieed It as one o| their riihtoms in the interval ol religious ccrenionies Alter this game was concluded the dance went on in tb< usual manner until ulght, when It wax suddenly Interrupted by sonic cause, which I did not then understand Kvery one engaged iu It socined to l>e very much troubled, and ga/.ed anxiously Into each other's eyes The old men made long speeches After which, gun? were tired off In the open air, whose reports rung In tli? far heavens like an angel's trump Dancing pretty soon began again, and was the second time suddenly inter, rupted. The old men again made earnest speeches, no' to the people, luit to some invisible object Two or tbrei women were then led off into the shadown ol the tre*r who remained for some time - every l>ody hushed witl perfect silence until tliey returned After their return danring commenced anew and was the third time Intel rupted. Speeches Were agaUl delivered, at the eonnlurioi of which a few individuals went out and played upon kind of flute (which give* unite a variable and in. lt dious sound,) for some moments After this, daucin > was again renewed, but shortly interrupted for th fourth tim?.
