W YO T YORK. THURSDAY M( LITEST FROM THE WAR QUARTER. | Three vessels have arrivsd at New Orleans, says the ' PtVayunej of the nth Inst., from Vera Crux, which left hereafter the MoKlm, viz the ship Zenobia, Captain ' (inney, the ship Atlas, ( apt Homans. and the bark I L.ewis, ('apt. Gerard. They all made quick passages to .he Ballze. By these arrivals the Picayune has accounts from ^era L ruz to the 6th Inst., three days after the McKim , tailed There had been no further arrivals from the truly of (ien. Scott or the city of Mexico, so far as we ;an learn Gen l'earce had not left Vera Cruz with his detachnent of troops. It was expected that he would do so In ;wo or three days The steamship Galveston had been sent up to Tampiso to bring a load of mules. Capt. Kinney, of the Zelobia. reports that she arrived at Vera Cruz on the norningof the 6ih Inst. The frigate Potomac bad sailed for the I'nited States. The steam frigate Mississippi was at Sacrlttcios. Capt. Kinney also furnishes the Picayune with thefol,owing items of ship news The ships Ashlnnd and Peter llattrick were discharging, and would sail, the former In about fifteen and the !atter in twenty days The sbip Agnes would shortly commence discharging, and sail In about twenty-five Jays. The ship Mederusob and bark Henry Harbeck, were waiting their turn to dlsoharge. The bark Antelope was discharging, and would leave soon. Several small vessels, on Government account, were waiting orders. The Picayune.'? files of papers from the city of Mexico, by way of Vera Crux, come down to the 39th of June. By way or 1'ampieo. too, we have tiles from the capital, but not later than the 16th. um fiucuuuu wu.i uini glTUIl IU UMCUVBl' KOlUeUllDg about the American prisoners in Mexioo. The following paragraph ii the only thing upon the subjeot we can find it is sufficiently indefinite, but shows that the prisoner!) had .left the capital. It is from El Rejiuhlicano of the 37th ult. Hukiutla.?The 180 Yankee priscuers of war whom the Government sent by this route, hare been detained at the above named town, and we learn that Uenerul (irary had not the necessary meant) of providing them with tood. The above scanty paragraph is all the intelligence we ;an And as to their departure from the capital. A summons for Congress to assemble, we tlnd in almost Bvery paper wo open. We presume It is to take into Bonsideration Mr. Buchanan'* letter, announcing Mr. Prist's appointment. It is certain that no quorum had been assembled up to the 29th ult. The Republicano publishes daily the list of members present and absent, rhey have several times come very near a quorum, and thare is douktl>'8t> a sufficient number of members in the oity to form one. Seventy-one are required?sixty-six were present on the '25th ult. The papers of the oity seemed to think that the American army would move from l'uebla about the 2d of June, l'hey say not a word in their later numbers of their own means of defence, or indeed of their own army, in this particular, they show perfect acquiescence to tho wishes of Sauta Anna. We see no allusion in the papers to the statement that Cien. Scott had given the government to the 30th ult. to consider Mr. Buchauan's letter before pushing ou to the capital. The Republicano Bays that our army io too Insignificant to advance, but hopes that it is truetbatUeu. Scott intends doing so, as it will afford a good tent of the fidelity of those Mexicans who have pledged themselves to defend the capital till death. This reads very much like a sneer at Santa Anna, and other Mexican officers. Arrests of editors are maklngfor maintaining the liberty of the press On the 26th ult., rumors which the Rrpublicano calls very alarming, were in circulation at the capital. It was said that the Mexican government had acceded to the mediation of Kngland; that the Knglish Secretary of Legation bad been down to Puebla, and returned on the 24th; that the object of his visit was to negotiate with Gen. Scott a treaty of peace; that the terms agreed on between them would be a surrender of the Californtas to the Americans, the reoognition of the independence of Texas, and the acknowledgment of the line of 30 degrees, as the northern boundary between the United States and Mexico. [This line would give Santa Ke and over a third of New Mexico to the United States ] The Republican!) has no faith in thetio rumor*. It denounces them as false, but at the same time in suoh a manner as to betray the fear that the rumors are true. The existence of these rumors confirms the information that Mr.Buchanan's letter was transmitted through the English embassy. Tho same considerations may lead the reader to uttach some faith to the term* of treaty which are enumerated above. The English Secretary returned to Mexico on the 34th, and Mr. Buchanan's letter was published on the UOth, and at tho same time these rumors obtained currency. Charges are made against certain parties, of smuggling large quantities of bullion from the capital. I). Pedro Prebot, ft wealthy Mexican merchant In Cordova, is denounced for carrying on an extensive and profitable commerce by furnishing supplies to <Jen. Scott. A party of nine Americans had been captured at Tlaxaia, with a Mexican guide. It was thought the latter would be shot. On the 17th of June. Gen. D. Ignncio Moro y Villamil and D. Jose Maria Oztega,left San Louis for the city of Mexico, the former to superintend the fortifications of Mexico, and the latter to conduct the trial of Arista. The government was issuing commissions to a large number of officers who distinguished themselves at Angostura? (our Duena Vista.) They are commissions for advauced grades. (Jen.

The Hint article of the constitution provide* that, to make au election valid, three-fourths of the States untitled to a vote, must vote. As there were twenty-three States entitled to a vote at the late election, and only fifteen votes cast, being less than three-fourths, the election has failed. Now, how can the electors proceed to elect, says tho Rejiublicano, for having concluded its mission of forming a constitution, and sworn to the fundamental code, it has no power left to exempt itself from the operation of the law. The vote stands, as far as heard from, more in favor of (Jen. Almonte than Cen. Herrera. The former has the vote of four States, and the latter of only three.

Sir Agreeably to your order that I should furnish an you with a report of the skirmish between a detachment of seamen from this vessel and a party of Mexicans, yesterday evening, I have to state that, after the exerci?e of ,-unall arms aud field artillery in the plazti, I 80 marched my men hack of the Hpanlsh consul's house, intending to take them through the different streets, for the purpose of giviug confidence to the inhabitants. M At the back of the consul's house my attention was ul very much attracted by the facilities with which an enemy of ordinary oapauity could approach directly to the plaza without fear of detection, as no sentries could * perceive them, and followed the path, seeking the marks ~j of those persons who fired on the sentries the night previouH. We had sufficient evidence .that this path had J? been used by the Mexicans. We tracked them to a 01 house not a musket shot from the square, where .. they had evidently left their horses, which we sup- ' ' posed to have been twelve or fourteen, by the J appearances. This path brought us into the mala street ; and I was about to return to the plaza, when " muskets were fired by an officer and three men, whom I jr had sent in advanc* to give the alarm. If necessary I ! went to the spot, and found that they had fired on the .' mounted picquet guard of the Mexicans, who Immediately retreated. Here, it appears, the Mexicans had cr rendezvoused for some days, judging from their fires . being still lighted, and the marks of soldiers ; ami after ^ reconnoitring the place, 1 murehedabout again, with the P? intention of returning to the plaza, not thinking it pru- ' " dent to go any farther. We had not returned twenty " yards before we were attacked in the rear by a large body of man?1 should say over a hundred, judging from their heavy fire?and I ordered the men Immediate- r ly to attack thein. which they did with great spirit, and K1' followed them up from bush to bush, and house to house. ? At this time 1 had with me only twenty men and four officers; but our carbines, consisting of twenty-five M men. came up when they heard the firing, and took position on the right side of the road, where they kept up .. u galling fire upon every man who showed himself, until the fire of the Mexicans ceased entirely, and they had j~' left their position. The damage we did the enemy I am " unable to state, as I only saw two met fall myself. Not a* knowing what force the enemy might be in, I made no ? search, but marohed my men into town, bringing in the wounded?one severely hurt, and one other slightly. These are the facts connected with the case. No inon could have behaved better than the oflloers and seamen, C. while under a heavy fire and opposed to an invisible c< enemy who was shooting at them from every bush. They ei showed an admirable adaptation to this species of fight- v< ing; and but for the imprudence of one or two, we ci should not have had a man hurt. w Much to my surprise, the Mexicans behaved with snl- cl rit, anil yielded their ground apparently with great reluc- o: tanoe. This convince! me that tbey were In much hi greater force than I bad at first estimated. 1] I do not think any danger whatever la to be uppre- c bended from an attack on the town from the class of ii men we encountered.

Although the b liarge la not directly brought against the government, f having neglected the proper precautions to prevent joh occurrences, It ha*, in several instances, been strongr insinuated. Any one, however, who has at all partiulnrly noticed the accounts that have been circulated ! 1 the papers, must have observed that they refer to one rtwo actual occurrences only; but, In consequence of n eing varied In form In different papers, and of the in- u ermingllng of comments, and the addition of particu- a irs, for the most part probably imaginary, they appear o a casual observer as narrations of sa many different f ccurrences. The original accounts are no doubt highly no intelligence has been received at the Inlian office, from its agents, Indicating present or future ? langer of anything like actual hostilities between uny of !i he tribes, or of any meditated attacks or depredations pon our citizens. We understand that it is no unusual ircumstance for interested persons on I he frontier, greatr to magnify the slightest disturbance among our 1 ndian "J1 opulation, for the purpose of inducing the government ., 3 call out troons, so that they may benefit by the ex- I J J1 endltures to which such a measure gives rise. There \ ave, it is true, been collisions between hunting or other | ,, arties of different tribes. Home of the Sioux, who are j restless and daring people, divided Into separate bands j 8e nd scattered over an immense extent of country, have i lade attacks upon parties of the Omahas, Ottoes, and /innebagoef; the Cumanclius upon the Pawnees; aud ^ ouie of the latter. a short time since, attacked a party of migrantsVn route for Oregon, aud robbed them of some of lieiroxen. These occurrences were far out beyond the line 01 f our military posts, and were such as no human presence could have anticipated. The tribes between 1 arties of which the collisions took place, have for a long | 0 ime been quiet, and apparently well disposed towards j ach other, as Is probably now the case with the great ' c ody of them. The attacks were doubtless not preme- n iluted, but weru accidental, arising out of the sudden meting of the parties, and their instinctivo and natunl love of enterprise and war. Measures have been aken to obtain peaceable possession of the ringleaders mong the Sioux in the outrages committed by them, nd to induce them to make reparation to the tribes 1 bey have Injured.
