Zs General Scott in the City of Mexico? Ac. die. [Translation from New Orleans La ratrla, lit inst ] The rabid whig paper of St. Charles street, put a great part of the population in a state of alarm yesterday afternoon; that is, those people who, without considering how the news comes, only strive to learn the substanoe of It. We do not wish to suppose that the National, or its vuiwijwuuiu luraub ?u bust a? gives ua 10 his exiraorai* nary extra ; but if he mji the details which be publishes were communicated to him, there is no doubt that poor Don Thorpe (without A) has been hoaxed like a sucking child. They bare made the poor man believe that General Soott was in the capital of Mexioo on the 17th July, and that this news arrived by the steamer Massachusetts. The editor of the National ought, at least, to have sufficient acumen to be able to calculate that such an Important piece of news as the entry of Scott into the oity of Mexico, oould not have remained hidden for three 'days, and at the end of that time that the National only should have the opportunity of publishing it. The Senor Torpe endeavors in his way to prove that on the 23d they could "have rcceivedj In VeraCruz news of the 17th, thus saying to his readers that > to 7 days weru necessary to go from Mexioo to Vera Crux by way of Orizaba, adding that from the 17th(at what hour ' we know not) up to the morning of the 'J.ld, when the Massachusetts left, seven days had passed. The National adds that it has seen a letter of the lath, which came express from Mexioo by Orizaba, and that it Btates that Santa Anna and Canalizo had quarreled, because the first opposed the defenoe of the capital, and the other did not wish to go forth to be beaten in the open field; that in oons?(iuence of this all the families left precipitately in oonsequence of the approaoh of the Yankees. The letters from Vera Cruz received by the Massachusetts, are almost unanimous in stating that Scott would not leave Puebla before the lath. To be in Mexico on the 17th it would have been necessary for him to have left Puebla on the 11th or 12th, and we know positively that on the 11th the Americans were not near ready to march. Oh, National'. Oh, Torpe! [From the New Orleans Delta, August 1.] The National issued the following in an extra last evening. It seems strange that this news should come by the steamer Massachusetts, whioh arrived here on Thursday last, and that up to this time, those in official correspondence with lien. Scott, should not be apprised of it. Kxtraordinary, however, ns it may appear, we have every reason to believe, from information confidentially communicated to ourselves, that it is substantially true?that the main fact of lien. Scott's entrance iuto the City of Mexico, in a llxed faot. A few days. and the statement will be either confirmed or authoritatively contradicted; till which time our readers must bide with what patience they bent may. There id news in the city from the city of Mexioo, a-< late an July 17th. It came through by a Mexican courier, who cuuie by the the way of Orizaba and Alvarado to VeraCruz. uen. Hoott entered Mexico on the 17th of July. He met with no opposition on hin way from I'uebla, until he arrived at l'enon, about eight miles from the olty. Here a alight skirmish ensued between bin advance und the Mexicans, when the latter fell back. The civil authorities then oame out to meet Uen. Scott.? Stipulations were entered into, by which the persons and property of the citizens of Mexico, were to be respected; this accomplished, our army marched quietly into the city of the Montezumas. This important news readied hern in the Massachusetts, but has been withheld for purposes that we do not understand. The authority upon which we publish it seems to us undoubted. The courier that brought this u?ws could come from the city of Mexico via Orizaba to Vera Cruz in Ave days, if the weather is good; seven under any circumstances. The Massachusetts left Vera Cruz on the i'M. It will be perceived that this allows seven days for the news to reach Vera Cruz by the route we have stated. We know upon the highest authority, that there is a letter now in the city, of the 17th July, from the city ot Mexico. The gentleman who gave us the information lias a letter of the 16th, in whtoh is mentioned the preparations of families about leaving, from the approach uf the Yankees. Santa Anna and Canalizo had quarrelled about the defence ot tue city. Lanallzo am not waut tlie city Injured. u tberu was no hope of successful resiHtance. lie preferred to meet our troops in the plain, and there deride the contest. Santa Anna would not agree to this, so no opposition was made. The eutrancc of Uen. Scott into Mexico is a rumor ? from the letter of the 15th we know positively of the preparation of the families iu the city to move on the approach of lien. Scott, and of the quarrel between Santa Anna aud Canalizo, as to the defence of the city, and we know that there is a letter in the city, of the 17th, from Mexico. The courier that brought through the letter of the 17th, brought news of Uen. Scott's entering the oity. We have no doubt of the truth of the report. [From the New Orleans Picayune, Aug. 1.] A good deal of exoitement was created in the city yesterday afternoon between 2 and 3 o'clock, by the issue trozn the oflioe of the National of an extra, aunouncing General Scott's entrance into the oity of Mexico. We have not a doubt of the perfect sincerity ef the editor ot the National in his belief of this Intelligence; but we are unable to arrive at the same oonolusion with him. We fear the announcement is entirely premature. All the intelligence contained in the extra of the National, was communicated to us on Friday evening. It did not then command our bellef.and consequently was not communicated to our readers yesterday morning. We have seen no reason to change the opinion we first formed of the news. We do not Intend to argue the question of the credibility of this Intelligence at any length; there are circumstances connected with its receipt here sufficient to awaken doubt in all minds. It is not surprising that a courier should have arrived at Vera Cruz from Mexico in the time alleged to have been occupied by this courier; but that he should have escaped all notice at Vera Crus,where so many eyes are fixed upon every new comer from the interior; that he should have made liis way to this port en a government vessel without suspicion; and that the news should here have beun suppressed till certain stock-jobbing operations wore complete?all this is possible, but highly improbable. But tnis we do believe, that If Uen. Scott had entered the city of Mexioo In triumph on the 17th ult, the news would have been known in Tampico and in Vtra Crus by innumerable voices, within forty-eight hours. News is carried in Mexlce with wondertul spesd. The battle of Buena Vista was ended on the night of the 334 of February, and the newB was known by the 28th in tho city of iVlexico, nearly six hundred miles distant. But further:?We learn that a Spanish gentleman Is now in thin city who arrived in the Massachusetts, who taw Gen Scott in Pueblo on the 14th uIt. If this be so. very plausible reasons for giving credence to this indulgence. We can conceive no motive for an attempt to deceive the publlo with It. The ohannel through which it has transpired Is very generally known, and we cannot suppose the Individual alluded to should entertain the slightest desire to mislead any one in the premises. And we know, moreover, that gentlemen who are extremely well-informed about affairs in Mexioo put faith la this news. Still we remain Incredulous, it would there is au end to the whole story at once. We have no doubt that letters of the lath ult may have been received here from the city of Mexico. There have been ample time and opportunity for such letters to reach here via Tampico, nor is It the first time that letters from Mexico have come by that route, and. been attributed to the agency of a courier arrived at Vera Cruz. We repeat, therefore, that when this intelligence was first communicated to us on Friday, we did not credit it, and upon reflection we can sue no reason to change our opinion. But while we thus frankly express our own convictions, yet we must confers that there are seem to be pretty well settled that (.Jen. Scott was to march from I'uebla about the 15th ult. We believe that lie did no, aud that he would certainly make his %ay to tliA flAniUl whether nntioflful or tint! hut. flint. tiM itrriviwl there on tne 17th, we cannot yet believe. We ?re very willing, however, to be undeceived iu the premises. and shall rejoice an sincerely as any If he ha* entered the capital of Mexico with a* little loss as Ik Implied l>y extra of the National. The propeller WathiuKton may very shortly be expected here, and then nil doubts will bo diftpelle 1. [Prom the Ne* Orleans Timed, Aug. 'i | By the arrival here, yesterday, of the steam propeller Washington, Captain 1'ratt, which left Veracruz on the nd, Tampico the Math, and Braxos the U7th ult., we have received numbers of the Tampico Sentinel to the 'Jbth,and of the Matamoras flag t? the 'J4th ult, inclusive. The following is the report made by Colonel <>ates to CJen. Scott, of the cause and result of the expedition to Kuejulta Hkad ((uabtkri?DrrHTMKVT or Tampico, } Tampico. Mexico, July 'il, 1847. \ Sir?Since I had the honor of addressing you upon the suliject of the American prisoners (Major <?nines' detachment) then confined at Kuejulta. several of them escaped and reaohed Tampico on the 'Jd Inst. Their report of the miserable situation and statement that some sixty or seventy of them had been on the road trying to gain this place'on the day previous, inspired me with a hope that I oould assist them, and perhaps recover the whole party. Whereupon, I ordered Colonel l)e Hussy to proceed with an escort of ope hundred men, consisting of Captain Wyse's company, with one all-pounder; C?ptain Boyd's mounted men, some Louisiana volunteers, and ten or twelve clticens. with written Instructions that he should use his best efforts *j\ the release of all the Mid prisoners from the Mexican General Uaray ; as they had beeu repeatedly assured that they were on their way to i'arapi c?, having been exchanged for a portion of the Mexican prisoners taken at Cerro Gordo. The Colonel accordingly proceeded in an orderly and peaceful manner oue hundred and twenty miles, or nearly to Hnejutla, making known the object of ills march as he passed along llere he was waylaid and attacked by a- large body of iuiunlry and cavalry. He fought them bravely, in a soldier-like manner, for several hour*, and finally drove them otf. losing an officer, some of his men, ana the principal part ?f his baggage. When the enemy became ijuiet, the oolonel retired, finding it difficult to proeeoute his onward march any further, lie according tell back on the next village, where he Immediately made a demand for *ome official person In order to oom H YO W YORK, WEDNESDAY municate with (lennnl Gtrtjr, but m only as*ured of further hostility. The colonel Immediately determined on returning to Tarapico, In doing which he encountered difficulties privation* and hardship* which only nerved to try the good qualitie* of hi* brave command. Kor three days he fougbt his way to Tampioo, beset by at least one thousand armed men, who had there prepared ambuscades for him ; but the determined courage of bis men enabled him to continue his march with astonishing success, and Anally to secure a position In which the enemy concluded to respect and leave him. as they had uo further hope of arresting hi* progress The colonel, however, learning that a new ambuscade was prepared for him on the road from I'anaeo to Tamplco. sent to me for assistance and supplies, which reached him in due time. He then returned to this station in good order. Thus you perceive that a detachment of resolute Amerioans marched through n population of flftv thousand Inhabitants on a line of one hundred and eighty miles, forcing difficult passes, creeks, rivers and various obstacles, to overcome an armed force of at least one thousand two hundred men to resist, with comparatively little loss ; such was the bravery, *kill, and remarkably good con <1uct or 1,01. Ha ftumr, and those under aim I enclose to you tli* report of the oolonel, whioh ii clear and justly circumstantial. tie has particularly noticed the adznfrublu conduct of Capt. K. 0. Wyse, and hie mounted company 3d artillery; alno Capt. Mace, Capt. Segtilne, and the men of their commands, who have shown what excellent qualities they posHwss, as dutiful and resolute soldiers. He alao speaks well of the men of the lamented Captain Boyd's ooiapany, and Tory highly of Mr. Letter, Mr. Aldrich and Mr. Wells, acting sutler. Nor should I fall to evinoe my own feelings of pride and satixfaotion at the oonduut of all the brave officers and men seleoted by the oolonel, who participated in the dangers and hardships of this expedition. Tlit'ir energy, ability 2nd perseverance command the highest confidence of their gallant leader, and I shall hope that at some favorable period, the tieneral-inChief will notice them honorably and publiely. I undone to you, also, the last letter of General Uaruy, wherein ho speaks ot an exchange of these prisoners for (ieneral La Vega, which 1 replied to as unusual. Indeed I do not geo the justice or honor in the oonduct of the Mexicans, when they hold on to a few unfortunate Americans with such pertinaolty, while we have some eight or nine thousand of their countrymen as prisoners. The health of this place is much the same as it was when I wrote last month. Nothing remarkable. I trust that this may reach you in the great city of Mexico, where glory and honor await the Americon arms. With h'reat respect. 1 am your ob't servant, WM. UATK8, 3d Art. Comd'g. To Hull L.

These papers contain nothing of particular interest, Hut the following letter received by it gentleman of this city, furnished us for publication, is ot exciting interest, and fully confirms the news we gave in our extra of Saturday, that (ien. Scott had entered llie city of Moxioo. A private letter from Tampioo dated the '25th ult , received by a citizen here, has been shown ua, in which the writer states that all communication had ceased between that port and the capital. A mail formerly arrived twice a week A day or two before the date above alluded to, a messenger had been seut by the merchants *t Tampioo to lien.

[From the St. Louis Republican, August 3.] The Jefferson Enquirer, of Saturday laat, publishes a letter from Lieut. Kastln, of the Cole county infantry, itated at Independence, where he arrived on the 23d ult. lie left Santa Ke on the 21ft of June, and was thirty two days on the route. A portion of the company bad been discharged; the remainder were yet in the hervlce, and would be mustered out at Fort Leavenworth. Lieut. Kantln left the command at the Little Arkansas, two hundred and ten miles from Independence, all making very good progress. Captain Angney, who commanded company A, was left in Santa Ie. So, also, was Lieut. Irvine, who had uot recovered from his wound. lie had suffered much, nnd it was apprehended that he might be a cripple for life. Kvery thing ?u nulet at Santa Fe. The country was rife with rumors of revolution and rebellion, but no confidence was to be placed in them. The people of Taos, were said to be discontented and restless; but Lieut Col. Willock had returned from his expedition to the lied Hiver Canon, and would soon quiet all dissensions. No news had been received of any troops being ordered to Santa Fe, and Col.
