General I'ieroe, with his train and convoy, had arrived safely at I'erote. General Scott, it will be seen, denpatched General Smith's brigade from I'uebla to meet him. It will be Been that Mr. Kendall believe* General Scott would advance the Urst week in August upon Mexico, and that there would be the severest battle of the war. The Mexicaas are fully prepared to receive him. The Sun of .innhuac irives the following account of hq encounter between General Pierce's train and the guerillas. It must be regarded us a rumor, says our correspondent, and 80, too, says the Sun :? V respectable person of the oity had informed us that a letter has been received yesterday morning by a citizen of this place, from a guerilla chief, stating that the guerritlr.ros, about tiUO iu number, attacked the train commanded by lien Tierce, near the National Bridge. The letter says the Americans approached under the tire of the Mexicans until they arrived within a hundred yards of them, when the American infantry opened a deadly tire ou them, forcing them to retreat. While the Mexicans were retreating the American cavalry rushed on them, aword in hand, and killed about one hundred Mexicans. The position of the Mexicans was one of the strongest that can be found in the country. The Americans passed the bridge after this successful engagement. A gentleman who oonversod with Santa Annasinoe the middle of July?we t<re told this ou the best authority in Vera Cruz -found him in tavorof negotiating, but dr?uding to assume the responsibility. Uen. Valencia had arrived at the capital with 4000 men from San Luis FoIokI ? all full of fight. This embarrassed Santa Anna. He frit himself too stroug to give up without a tight.

The following in relation to the evacuation of Tobaioo is from the Sun uj.inuhuac of the 27th ult. The U. S. steamer viisalsrippi, t.'om Perry,arrived yesterday at Llzardo. bringing with him the steamers Scorpion, Spitfire and Vixeu.

Van Brunt, with the bomb brig Emma, the steamer Scourge and the gun boat Bonita, were left at Kroutero, a tew miles from the mouth of the river, (it being a healthy location) to take char#* of the cuutom house there, and guard the passages lending to the capital It is due to troth to say that the Sun of *1nahuac an its Spanisi side represents the evacuation of Tabasco in a less favorable light for our arms than the above account. it attributes our withdrawal to the overwhelming forces of the enemy. Our oommandant feared he would be unable to resist an attack, and determined to evacuate the plaoe rather than risk th? issue. We will recur to this matter. The health of the city of Vera Crux is improving, say the papers. We will give the offloiai statement in oui next, but the average daily mortality Is about nine, i'he vomito is decreasing The inn tells of various exploits of Mexican robbers near Vera Crus, but they are hardly worth repeating, stealing hcrses being the greatest teat. The following paragraph from the Sun of the 33d ult. touches Father Jaraula:? This priest and his band of robbers having robbed some of the property belonging to the U. 8. Government from Oeu. Cadwalader's train, delivered it over to the Governor of Orizaba, who sold it and pocketed the proceeds. Itisnatdthat the priest is not at all satisUed with this, and has abandoned his command.

In addition to the means heretofore prescribed, (see general orders, No. uOb,) the commander of the cavalry brigade will detail daily, for night duty, beginning at 1J o clock and terminating about sunrise, a mounted patrol of a sergeant, corporal and twelve men, for every two hours, to make the entire circuit of the environs of the city. The cavalryipatrols. like those of foot in the Interior, will receive the standing instruction to teian and to turn over to the nearest guard all suspicious and disorderly persons for examination or trial. The field officer of the day will see that the patrol duty, both exterior and interior, be duly perfo med, and distribute that duty between the foot patrols, so that, every part ot the city may be regularly patrolled several times in every night By command of Major General Scott. 11.

He taught bravely for his life,and was faithful to the last, liy singular good fortune the letters by this courier we have recovered. They are not of a late date, but It is rather lingular that they should have reached their destination against the wishes of the Mexicans, when onoo in their possession.

Last evening, on ths strength of a letter said to have been received from the Hpamsh Minister in Mexico, peace stock went up. It was rumored tliat the contents of his communication made peace inevitable?that the Congress and Santa Anna were disposed to agree to any telllgenue has coint) In from which It would appear that there is do earthly chance for an amicable adjustment of oar difficulties. From all accounts. It would appear that 8anta Anna and Congress are at swords' points, and that the former has all the advantage over the constituent wisdom of thu great und magnanimous Mexican nation. It may be reooTleotsd that norae two months slnoe Congress passed an act declaring any one a traitor who

would even entertain the Idea of a peace with th? North Americans. Ho far so good. When Hanta Anna received Mr. Buchanan's last propositions, a few weeks slnoe, he at onoe submitted them to Congress for that body te act upon the matter In the premises; but what did Congress do but send the payers back with an answer that the Initiatory steps belonged exciislvely to the Executive. At this Hanta Auna beoame enraged? said that he did not send the papers before congress to ascertain what his prerogatives w?re?he knew their full extent well?but he had laid the matter before that body In order that the members might rescind their former decree deolariag any one a traitor, ko., if they saw (It.

Arother battle, in my bumble opinion, will be of Immense advantage to the United States; for If Gen. Scott moves upon the oapital the Mexicans will certainly be defeated, and If he remains bare, and there is no more lighting, tne enemy will contrive to com* out of the war conuuerors. They will endeavor to make It appear that tne Yankees, fearful of risking a battle at their principal city, sued for peace, and in the eyes of the world they will be able to mikt a tolerably clear oaBe.

I then asked them what they wanted, in order to gain time, affecting not to know whether they wasted niv mrtiiflv op Thuv innn n/ m* latent; and although, from tbe beginning, It was obvious they wished to avoid discharging their pleoes no near tbo city, still 1 Raw uomlstakeable ilgna that tbo time of parley vat closed. Unable to reach my horse or attaok them, I surrendered to the captain, and tbe three bringing my arms behind me, and taking tbe end of the rrpe with which they bad tied my bands, one ol them mounted my horse. and, putting me on a mustang, rode off at full speed. Further particulars of my journey I shall write hereafter ?

For Instance?the young man above named, since 1 commenced writing thU, came, as I sat at table, and handed me a dollar Of course, I declined.
