AMERICAN l'RISONEKS IN A1KXICO?PROBABLE ADVANCE OK GEN. SCOTT. [From the New Orleans Picayune, 14th inst.] We bave at last direct aoeounU from the American prisoners at Mexico which enable us to clear up the contradictory rumors we have bad in relation to them Letters wera received here yesterdny from MaJ. Gaines by iiia brother. A. L. Haines. dated in the city or Mexico, the -Jtith of June, with the use of which we have been favored. It appeura from them that the ruulc and file of the prisonera have been releaaed and sent to Tampico. Thece were doubtless the individuals at Haejutla. as mentioned in our last. The officers litid not been released on the 20th of Juno We give the greater part of .Maj Gaines's letters, which, it will be seen, throw great light on Oen. Scott's movements as well as upon the fate of the American prisoners. City of Mkxico, Jane '26, 1847. Dear 91r?I km very sorry that I ham it not in ray power to advise you of our release from bondage Thin execrable Government, in riolation of repeated promises and a solemn engagement entered into with Gen. Taylor the day after the battle of Buena Vista, still detains us ai< prisoners of war. On the 3d inst . I received a note from the government to present myself at the Castle of Santiago, our late prison, and there receive the final determination of the authorities in our oase. At the castle wu were informed that we were exchanged, and that we should depart the next day for Tampico? the officers only, without the men ?and were directed to go to the palace, receive our instructions, expense money, kc. be., preparatory to our departure. At the paiaoe we were told to call the next day, and on the next day we were Informed that they were without means to send us and that we could not go Thus were our hopes blasted, after having made all necessary preparation on our part for the trip. This disappointment was the more galling because the reason assigned was known to be a met e subterfuge, and it turned out that four days afterwards our men. one hundred and seventy in number, were sent off to the same f>laco without our knowledge, which required a much arger sum than it would have required to send the officers Indeed, it would have taken a very small additional sum to have sent us with them, and that we would cheerfully have paid ourselves. By sending off the men without our knowledge, they were subjected to great suffering and inconveuience on a long road to Tampico, without the preparation necessary in the way of clothing, shoes, fcc., which were then, in fact, being furnished them. The true reason why the officers were not allowed to acoompany them remains o be seen Since that time, (the 4th.) 1 have heard nothing from this infernal government, if government it may be called, but to-day I have received an assurance from Gen. Scott that immediately upon his arrival in the vicinity of the city, wnich will surely be within twelve days, be will make a peremptory demand for us. it will b? complied with, as I think. You may, therefore, look for me early in August. Gen Scott, we are assured has made every possible effort to procure our enlargement, but to no purpose. His .approach to this city will certainly take place In a very few days. His measures preparatory to moving are all taken, and preparations nearly complete. Ho oomes withaforce sufficient to accomplish hlsol^ect effectually. I have received no letters from the States except one from A. K. since my captivity, so that the world as to me may be said to be hermetically sealed up. [Hero follow passages of a nature altogether private and domestic, ai d the letter concludes as follows ] 1 have now the most positive information of General Scott's readiness to move on this capital within the next three or four days. He will buve an easy ooni(Uest. My intercourse with Gen. Worth is frequent. By his generous conduct towards me, he has endeared himself to me for life. Your affectionate brother, JNO. P. GAINES. We regard these remarks of Major Grines upon the movements of Gen. Scott as of the utmost interest. He is a cool and cautious gentleman, guarded in what he says or writes, and must have strong grounds, for the judgment he expresses as to the Mexican means of de 'fence. Wo confess that our opinion us to the degree of resistance (Jen. Scott will encounter from the Mexicans has been modified by thU letter; but that Uen. Scott would promptly and thoroughly (log the Mexicans when he met them, we hare never doubted. This letter confirms the expectation of our Vera Crua correspondent, and of the editors in the city of Mexico, that General Scott would advance from i'uebla about the last of June. We look eagerly for further arrival* from Vera Cruz. ARMY. [Nrnia the N. O. Delta, 14th inst J The splendid body of men under the command of Capt.

FRIDAY MOJ Wiletliig Plurf*. U. S. Hotel, 8*ratoui Hrmnus, July 31, 1?47. The Muon at Saratoga has reached its culminating point The elegant company i* not composed exclusively of Americans; there are many gentlemen here from Havana and Ntw Orleans, an<l from Europe, who are making their Drat rniri-e Into Amerioata society; there are uho a number of voluptuous Spanish women here; these beautiful creatures are the objects of the unequivocal homage of Amerloan gentlemen. Edward Burd, Esq., a very eminent oitizen of Philadelphia. and Mr. Yturblde. a son of the Mexican army officer, of that name, also lately from Philadelphia, are here. P. Parkor, Esq., of Boston, Is arrived, and is accompanied by his lady and daughter, and by Col. Deaoon, his elegant son-in-law. I am under obligations to the Messrs. Marvin for facilities offered me for procuring intelligence. 1 suppose, after careful Inquiry, that there are thirty-two hundred strangers now at Saratoga; in no previous yoar has there been t<ucli u concentration of the fanhlon aud tne beauty, and the wealth and the talent of America at any watering place ; the women are paragons ; they are of remarkable beautv, aud the refined elegance tf the men Is acknowledged even by myself. The American gentlemen have shown me that they are not ignorant of that gallant aud honorable devotion the calumnious Box are not disturbed by visions of upbraiding angel", tben he li obdurate, and his heart in turned to oludrn. What ii tlife rule of the Kngllsh aristocracy at the el"b, at dinner, at a presentation, or at any party of patricians I It it* a muwkUb affeotatlan? an insipid lolling and lisping, and a continual effort to seem neglige and irrcsistiblo. No comparisons of such garralousness with Ainuricau simplicity, will alarm us. Before taking thulr coffee, at 6 o'clock in the raoruir t{. a large number of the visitors walk to the Congress spring, wbich is n few rods distant from this hotel; the water is furnished gratuitously Here we see children and adults of nil ages drinking this water in great profusion; six tumblers of it ure often drank with ease, and with an absence of the effect produced by drinking the common water. This is tbe scene of some futiuy little incidents; and one particularly One has occurred, which I will tell you. A few mornings since, at an early hour, two Krench girls, daughters of a Parisian, cauie down to the spring. These lovolv creatures looked us women always do who do not sleep after the sun has risen. After drinking of the water, they began playfully to throw, at first a very little, and then whole tumblers full into each other's faces, and upon their rich morning dresses it was charming to see these sweet girls helping each other to such a summary shower bath; it was positively exhillrating. I believe they gave over after their dresses were <|uils saturated and spoiled. A small party of the dilltlanti assembled in one of the rooms of this hotel last n'glit. for what, at the head of the subscription list, was technically called a" hop ;"the party was composed of thu most elegant and distinguished visiters ; this, by the by. is a grand iuature in the arrangements of the hosts ; parties of any uumbor are furnished with rooms where there oau be no intrusion. Divine music in the soul of hilarity, and at this select ball there was a band that 1 have hardly heard equalled ; the music, combined with the ices and the delicate refreshments.added brilliancy to the onverBational gems, whlcu were particularly redundant; the dauciug was in some cases most superb and superior; I have seen la l'olka danoed here by amatuers with wonderlul grace ; tbe attitudes which the modern elegant et assumed iu dancing several of the intricate ballets, were undoubtedly designed to make oelibicy very inconvenient; such i? the effect of these thrilling attitudes; when fire is brought Into coutuct witli the villunous saltpetre, an explosion follows. Tills brilliant assembly separated at an early boar, evident!/ highly deligb'-ed Cost uuiks for the grand fancy dress ball to be given at this hotel on the 1 lt)i of August next, will arrivu lu a few days trow New York; I suppose that this ball will be most mugniilceot. The ball room in of vast extent and capacity, and the entire arrangements will he made with a view to the entertainment of several hundred persons.

Soon after we arrived, the St. Clair came in sight, and our party was transferred, and on their way up this strait that empties Superior into the vast uby*A below The dl> tanae from Mackinaw to the Hault.is about ninety miles, and the scenery of the river on the Canada side in irruiil and picturesque. The shores htm lined with dense forests of white birch, cedar, hemlock, pine ki\, which set back for several miles, aud then risen a range of hills and mountains, that resemble the scenery of the Hudson. As you approach the Fall) ot the Sault, the strength ofthe current is increased to u rate of nearly tour mile* per hour, aud favorahli point* on the ( anada shore. present the m attered huti of draggling Indians, who subsist mainly upon tish froa the waters.

This town is situated In latitude !*>>?, and therefore may be considered the most northern sumlher resideuci of the I'nion. It was settled nearly two centuries ago as a fur trading establishment, but still retains much ol its early origin, and has not increased to upwards of IO(K inhabitants Oroupsof < hippewas and the French voyaguers who were born and reared on these shores, were met at every point, while the conical bark lodges of the first and the rude constructed log huts of the second.enclosed with cedar stockade, all tended to form a striking pic turesque aspect, as contrasted with the white and bail breed society which the town presented The river at this point is about a mile In width, the rapids extending in length the same distance, with n broken fall of near twelve feet, over which the waters o: the father of lakes is forced at a current of full twelvt miles per hour. Several Indian canoe* were stationed below the falls fishing for white fish with scoop nets, and ppearing salmon with great success.

There have been so many errors committed by all parties, especially by the great intervening powers, that my candid opinion is, thut they have bungled into it, bungled through it. and are likely to bungle out of it. They have made too inuch of llosas, who laughs in his leeve at all their luconslstencies. 1 will give you an anecdote respecting this noted character, extracted from my daily journal, which explains itself, and is quite characteristic of the man. A young lady of tills town went to Uuenos Ayres on a visit to her aunt. This aunt is married to tlio noted Portuguese consul, I,eite, now resident in that capital. On the arrival of Miss t>he was introduced to Dua. Manuelitu (Itosas's daughter.) with wliem her aunt was on familiar terms. After a fortnight's absence Miss thought of returning to Montevideo, and a few days previous to her departure she was invited to pass a day at Rosas's quluU. called - 1'aleuno. Accordingly arrangements w<-rc made by Manuelita, for the party to go on horseback, aud the officers of the Danish frigate, anchored off the harbor, were Invited to be of the company.

The ladies, all in on< breath, desired to know what be ment. " Stop a little,' said he, " Hnd you shall nee.'' He then brought u cage In which was a pea-lien, and having let it free on tni | ground, he gave a whittle, when several beautiful pea 1 cocks made their appearance.

Now to fact*. Some four or flv<? hundred people, in anil near a large manufacturing village. are deprived of the privilege* of a Poet Offite, In the enjoyment of which they have been for nearly half a century. Our Post Office In di?eontiDU?d?our citiien* are sow obliged to obtain their latter* from an office situated some miles distant. in a small out-of-the-way plaoe, containing not a fourth of the population that our Tillage has, with very little biialneM, and whoae people do not receive in a month half the number of letters and paper* that panned through tn? ofllce of Spot*wood In on* day W? have no objection to the economical provision* whiuh the Po?t Office Department ha* thought proper te adopt, by reducing the number of office* Not In the leant. \Ve rather admire the policy. What w* com plain of i* thi*?that In the present lustance.the Department ban discontinued our Poet Offioe. and obliged ua to go or send to a great and inconvenient distance without the slightest reference to our number*, the amount of business doue in our village, or to the correspondence or I position of the place. ' Spotswood 1m situated about ten mile* from Amboy, the Camden utid Amboy Railroad passes through- the village; it contains four stores, four large manufactory*. a large grist mill, a saw mill, two churches, aud three hotels. The Uld Bridge, where the office is now placed. contains two stores, a tavern, a church; doee very little business This is a fair statement. Let any reasonable man judge of the propiiety of the oonduct of the l'o?t Office Department. And yet there Is very little excuse for the Postmaster Oeneral. lie ha* the luarterly returns from both offices, and they tell thrlr own stories. Where wrong exist*, our people think right should take its place. We shall not lie slow to use The means. Mlwellaiieooa.
