ORDER TO MARC11 UPON MEXICO. Order Countermanded. SANTA ANNA'S PREPARATIONS. THE OOLVMN OF HONOR. LETTER FROM GEN. TAYLOR. The'' Republicano" upon Mexican Victories, Ac. die. Ac. I.ATER FROM VERA CRUZ. [Krom the Kew Orleans Picayune, June 16.] The steamboat Galveston, Capt. Hay Hand, arrived yesterday from Vera Cruz, touching at Tamplco and the Bruzos. She left Vera Cruz at 3 o'clock on the afternoon of the 8th inat., Tauiploo on th? afternoon of the 10th, and Brazos Santiago on the evening of the 11th. Hhe arrived at the S. W. Pass on the night of the i:tth, having made a very fine run. The Galveston brought no later news direct from the army of Gen. Scott, for there had been no further arrival of courlors at Vera Cruz. We learn nothing more of the march of Oen. rillow, aud remain still In the dark as to his position. The Palmetto left Vera Cruz shortly after the Galveston, and arrived at Tampico on the 10th. She may shortly be expootod, and possibly may bring later news. Krom Tampico we have some verbal intelligence not without interest. The American prisoners had not arrived there, but were at a place about forty leagues distant. probably Huejutla. On the Nth Inst. Col DeKussy.of the Louisiana regiment, left Tampico at the head of about two hundred men, intending to proceed to the relief of the prisoners. He took with him a small force of the regular artillery, a portion of his own regiment, and some ot the mounted men of Tampico?a serviceable description of force raised in tho town. It is more than probablo that the colonel will have a brush with the enemy before he gets back. There are Baid to be pretty strong parties ot guerillas on the route to be followed. Our aooounts of the health of Tamptoo, and especially of the Louisiana regiment, are more l'arorable. The number of men on the sick list has rapidly decreased.but the remaining cases arc somewhat more severe. They are mostly cases of intermittent fever, a few cases of fatally. There is very little yellow foyer Id the town, and tne cases have been confined to the civil hospital.? The fevers whloh prevail are beooming more malignant as the seasou advance*. Kroin a file of the Sun oj jinahuac, published at Vera Cruz, we have a few items of Intelligence. The night of the 7th instant, a fight ooourred in Vera Cruz, between two Mexicans, in which one stabbed the other so severely, that he died instantly. No names are given. The IT. 9. steamer Vixen, Captain Smith, arrived at .\nton Lizarilo on the 4ih Instant, from Tabasco. She reported a slight skirmish, the particulars of which will be found under another head, the news having just been re reived hereby way of Mobile. The U. H. schooner Kurt went up from the naval anchorage to Vera Cruz on the 6th Instant, and returned the next day. The object of the inovemeut was not known. Captain Mayo of the nary and governor of AlvaradOi having received intelligence that Kather Jarauta was in the vicinity, and designed to surprise and take Alvarado. went off in pursuit of him at the head of one hundred and tlfty men, proceeding up the river.

[Krom thu Sun of Anahuae of the 8ih lnat J Wiiat Coi'hie will Och. Scott i'uascc??Tne late intelligence we have received from Mexico, of the correspondence betweeu Mr. Buchanan and the Mexican Mlni?ter of foreign Relations, treating of peace, has, it seems to us, altered the course which lien. Scott wax to pursue. We have deferred our rrtn&rks until now, because we were afraid to be too hasty in our speculations. It teems most likely to us that (Jen. Scott will not advance any further until he receives orders from Washington to do so. But will the cabinet at Washington give this order? Wc doubt it very much, because it would thro* more difficulties in the way of the negotiations. It must have struok the mind of every one who has read the correspondence above alluded to, that the tone of the Mexican government has altered very muoh, if we should judge from the few lines addressed to Mr. Buchanan by the Mexican Premier in answer to his propositions of peace. We do not see, in his letter, Any of that arroganoe which, in every Instance before, has characterised the Mexican dlplomatlo correspondence? but on the contrary, a pretty polite, though short answer, in which he says that he declines answering thu arguments of Mr. Buchauan, until Congress, to whom he refers the matter, and who have solely the power to deoide, shall have acted upon them. In a note which he addressed to Congress, he presses them to take Immediate action upon them. But in the meantime, what Is Gen. Scott to dof Will he take up his line of march for the capital, while there are hopes entertained for peace? This Is not at all probable. We therefore come to the conclusion that he wlU not make a step forward until all hopes for concluding a treaty of peace is lost.

[From the New Orleans Picayune, July 16.1 The Diario del Gobierno, says El Sol, of the !28th of June, publishes a letter from Tuebla. in which It is slated that on Thursday, the !14th ultimo, the Americans held a Council ot War, in order lo determine wneu iney sbould proceed towards the capital. A General?whose dudo the writor did not know -wm of opinion that It wu not prudent or wine to march on the capital before they could oarry with them St least 20,000 men - that, supposingall to be favorable to the Americaus during their advauce. It wan undoubted that they would meet with resistance, aud in the attack would loseone-halfor more of their forces? thuA reducing them to about 4000 men, whioh number would uot be HUfflcient to bold possession of a city like Mexico Gen Worth wan of a contrary opinion, und stated that a* noon km an Invader wan detained in the progress of his march, a single retrograde step would bring upon him ihe moat disastrous calamities?aud that this has been pr?ved always He added, with boasting pride, that six or eight thousand Americans were enough to couquer twenty thousand Mexicans, and that consequently, as triumph was Inevitable, he saw no reason why they hould not proceed Immediate to the capital Gen. Scott and others were of the same opinion aa Gen. Worth Thus it was decided that the march should be commenced to-day (the 3Hth); but there was some one who insinuated that It was not advisable to follow Immediately after the propositions ol peace sent from the United States The Commander-in-Chief said that he would remain a few days at Hio Krlo, until he obtained a definite answer from the Mexican Government. The Americans have only about ?600 men, thirty pieces of artillery and one mortar. The Oiarxo says that the Americans have put themselves in a perilous situation and that, eveu should It occur that the v would obtain triumphs without number, those very trlum|>hii would be their ruin.

'I'he Republican" of the .'Pth, says nothing about the subject; but in that paper of the Sllth is another postscript, to which is prefixed to lart(t letters. Very Important." This po. iscript montloi.a tiie receipt of letters announcing the debarkation of ImOO men at Vera Cruz Arum Tauiplco, who had marchid immediately for Pu?>bla. [This is probably Oen.

The letter* then speak of the review of th troop*, which took plaoe on the 3flth. The number of troops in again Bet down at 8WJ men, [without including those 'who occupy th* fortifications of Bau Juan, Loreto. Ike Bat the most important paragraph is that Gen. Scott would probably postpone bis maruh upon the city until the 10th July, to allow these reinforcements to oome up. Wo give these various pieces of news as we tlndtbem; but the reader will constantly bear in mind that our advices direct from 1'uebla are later than these by the city of Mexico. The Hepublicano, iu this same postcript, thinks it rery probable that General Taylor will abandon Sultlllo, Matamoros, and other towns in the north of Mexico, and shortly proceed to Vera Crut to assist in the taking of tbo capital, which is now, It adds, the object of the aspirations of the Americans. It Is very anxious that the Government should direot Generals Valencia and Salas. now at ban Luis, that they harrass the retreat of Gen. Taylor. We see an order of Santa Anna, Issued on the 29th, admitting provisions of various kinds Into the city free nf <lnf? Tltl* In tnUuf Anl?.. I ' j - ? ? ?* v/m.j u ""'B ?" uiaruai law prevail*. Another order lias lu'eu issued, modifying a previous one,directing the cloning of ihou? every afternoon. They are now to be closed only on 1 hursd&ys. The otyeot of cloning the shops wax to compel every l>ody to turn out for military drill. On the iltfth, (ion. Santa Anna issued, through the Secretary of War. a brief,but Ktriugent decree to this effect: ?The army of the enemy beiug upon the eve ot moving upon thiH capital with a view to attack the same, and the uiomeut having arrived to act boldly, energetically, and uniformly, to repel our common enemy in a manner decisive and liappy lor our arms. it in decreed that martial law having been declared, it shall be strictly enforced. and that no other authority whatever shall be recognized than that of the general in coifluiand of the army of the Kant. This General is Lombardlui. The d?cree is followed up by another greatly restricting the intercourse between the city and oountry, and polntiug out who may go und come. The details would be uninteresting here. The Reyublicano urges the formation of a body of troops under the name of Columna de Honor?something like the Legion of Honor?in whiuh officers of all grades not actually on duty in defenoe of the city, shall serve as nrivaiii MnldiMr*. Unit** un ulnmiutit urtl?u ! .Ju?A>n.l in tint Nupport of this tubject, but Santa Anna will look witli h jealous eye upon every suggestion ooiuing from this quarter. Robberies arc said to be very frequent in the capital, an.I no adequate force is detailed to prevent them. Tim Rrpuhlicano blames the government for not communicating at once with Mr. Trist, without referring the subject mutter of Mr. Uuchanao's letter to Congress. It holds that it Is the business of the Executive thus to manage negotiations, and refer the result to the wisdom of Congress, liesides, it says, that in all probability it will be impossible to procure a quorum of Congress To refer overtures thus is to break them off in the outset. That paper takes good care to prevent the inference from this remark that it favors peace. It is ou the contrary opeu-uiouthed for war. It would not grant a truce for a single day, nor omit preparation for defence. However, it concludes its article by trusting that the Executive, as well as Congress, will show themselves " extremely difficult" in relation to peaoe,andnot oousent to one unless the conclusion of it shull protect, iu every particular, the houor, the good name, and the interests of the nation. We regard this as a concession on the part of the"H</>uA/tcam>, and of g*od omen for peace. We hear not a word of the American officers, prisoners in Mexico. Wo fear their hopes of liberation are to be again for aonM days deferred. The papers contain account* ol' several outrages committed by Americans In Puebla We do not believe a word of them. Some of the stories are utterly preposterous. One paper pretends that Gen. Scott is driven to make a desperate attempt upon th? capital, by the scantiness of hia resources, and the disooutent of the volunteers! VlniiGADH aph not tinnr?nar<?/l frw hi in U <(>!> We have the decree of Santa Ann*, by whloh bo endeavors to prevent the Introduction Into th? country of goods entered at porta in our possession. It declares all auoh gondii forfeited. Wo have not room for the details to-day. Our readers may reoolleot that some time tilnoe our correspondent at Saltillo informed us of a great excitement occasioned there by the arrival of two .Mexican officers from ban l.ui*, with despatches for Ueneral X'aylor. 1 hey were supposed to be propositions foi peace, but turned out to be solemn inquiries whu tlier it was the general's Intention " to conduct tb< war according to ttiu manner adopted J?y the Carnaii ohes." The wrath of (Jen. Taylor at thu preposteroui insolence of the Mexicans was described as ludicrous but we have never sees his reply till now. In the Mexl can paper* lately received the whole correspondence ii given in Spanish. The letter to Cieil. Taylor was from lien. Mora y Villamil, and dated the 10th May. Th< letter Is long and we have no idea of translating it, and the impudence of It was not a whit exaggerated by out correspondent. The nature of It will bu sufficiently disclosed by Uen. Taylor's reply, which wu translate, althongb we feel what Injustice nls terse and elegant style will suffer by the double translation. The letter is said to bo dated hcadquarttri, nkar MoNTKnr.v, May 10, 1847. Sir?1 received yesterday your communication of the 10th instant, whioh informs me that you are instructed by the ('resident Substitute of the Republic to addresi me, with a view to demand from me a categorical re< ply?" whether my wishes and my instructions are t< prosecute the war in conformity to the laws of nationi ana as war ih conuucieu oy civiuzeu countries, or ai barbarous tribes carry it on among themselves, it beiny understood that Mexico is disposed an 1 resolved to ac ovpt the mannur which is proposed or carried out, and awaits the result in order to dictate fcU measures accord ingly." If these instructions were not communicated to rat through au authority as highly respectable as yourself i should refuse to believe they emanated from the chiel magistrate of the republic, containing, as in fact they dc oontaiu in my Judgment, an Implied but not less delibe* rate insult towards me and towards the government which 1 have the honor to represent. Viewing them in this light, I shiill* decline giving the categorical reply which is demanded of me, which 1 do with the respect due to his Excellency the President. As you have thought (It to communicate to me the instructions of your government at some length upon the manner in which the war lias been earned on upon my part, 1 improve this opportunity to make some remarks upon the subject. The outrages to which especial reference is made came to my knowledge after they had been perpetrated, and 1 cau assure you that neither yourself nor the President of the republic can have felt deeper pain than that which 1 frit on the occasion. All the means at my disposal, within the limits of our laws, were employed, but in the greater number of cases fruitlessly, to Identify and punish the delinquents. I cannot suppose that you nave been so ill informed as to believe that such atrocities were committed by my connivance, order or cousent, or that they, by themselves, give an Idea of the manner in which the war has been proseouted in this partot Mexico. They were, in truth, unfortunate exceptions, caused by circumstances which I could not oontrol.

In this connection It should be burne In mind that the Mexican troops have given tc the world the example of killing the wounded upon th< deli of battle. As you have adverted to the requisition which I have made upon the people of these Htates, to make ludemnl % for the losses inourrtd by the destruction of one ofoui trains, I take the liberty of informing you that this wh not the act of the Mexican troops exolusireiy, but tha the rancheros ol the country were chietly concerned ii it; and that the subsequent assassination and mutilatiui of the unarmed teamsters were marked by an atrociou barbarity unequalled in the preaent war. it i* with pal ii that 1 And myself under the necessity o addressing you In a manner to wmcn I am nine accua tomed; but 1 have been provoked to do so by iho object and the manner of your communioatiou, which ia objec tlonable, In my eatimatiou, a* well in ita inalnuationa ai in ita tone.

( Krom the New Orleans Delta, loth Inst. ] We had the pleasure of an interview with Capt. Scott of the regular service, and Lieut Atkinson, of the Louisiana volunteers, who came over in thu Galveston, haviug left Tamplco on the 10th of July. W? are gratified to near from these gentlemen that the health of our troops in Tauiplco has greatly improved. There are now but a few cases in the hospital? do cases of voinito have occurred amoog the troops, though there have buen a few cases In the civil hospital, 'l'amploo Is regarded as a very healthy place. Indeed, the appearance of the gentlemen, who have resided there sometime, indicates great salubrity of climate and healthiness of life in that onoe grave yard uf Mexico. It Is a strange occurrence that the yellow fever should have failed to pay its annual visit to 1 ampioo this year, when It had such abundant material to operate on. and when it has not been guilty of a similar omission for many years. Tbe only thing of Interest at Tampieo was the arrival of oue of the party of Majors G lines' and Borland's command, who were on their way to Tanipioo, to be exchanged agreeably to tbe treaty between Gen. Taylor and Santa Anna at Buena Yit-ta. This party, unde? it guard of regular Mexican troops, was detained at a small town about forty leagues lroni Tampico by tbe authorities. until they oould communicate with the government in the city of Mexico. On what grounds these miscreants are now aeting. it would be difficult to imagine The country in which such contemptuous disregard of the power and dignity of Its government can be exhibit ed with perfect impunity, Is not entitled to bo admitted Into the class of nations to which the laws of war and the amenities of civilised l?t?eOIIIII apply. They are a host 01 lawless barbarians, who are only to be controlled by the Iron rule of might, and deserve neither pity, courtesy, moderation nor generosity.

This Is tile I greatest drawback on this beautiful Island, being entirely dependent on the elements for supplies of that absolute necessity of life.
