The private oorreepondence that It bringx, givet the following political new*- ?There wero 28 000 men in the capf tal, of which 20.000 were regular troops. and the rent of the national militia. Thin increase of lorcea has been caused by the arrival in Mexico of (ieneral Valencia, from San I.uls Potosi, with 4500 men. and SO pieces of artillery of all sizes. The actual number of pieces of artillery ready In the capital amounts to 117. As 1 told you before, Brig. Oen.

In order that Lomhardini as a mere automaton, may be tUo blind instrument of his orders The government, (or rather Santa Anna) have prohibited the publication of all the papers of the capital, exoept the Diario Ojicial, which is the only one circulated in the other States. We may uay lin Is excusable for thi* step, because, as wUut he aims at Is the establishment of a dictatorship, and the prens obstinately racists it; giving the public to underntand the Injurious effect which the "Mexloan Napoleon" has on their interests, he has found it necosnary to give a mortal blow to the liberty of the press. The capital is a*reul Babel?both ectaltailos and mailtradon have lost their senses, aud neither one nor the other know what they want or what U best for them.? Both parties accuse one auother as being the cause of the deplorable state of affairs in the republic. The result of all this will be similar to that or the rabbits in tbe fable, who, while hotly disputlntfas to whether they were greyhounds or lurchers, nad theirdoubts solved by the arrival of the dogs, who destroyed them. Santa Anna seek* a dictatorship iu order to be able to make peace, but the mysterious hero of Angostura " count* without his host," and doe* not pay attention to the coalition in the Bix northern States. Toor country of Ooatemotzin and .Montezuma ' By means of the K.nglUh commercial house of Manning k Mackenzie the government reoelves $30,000 daily until $400,000 are made up, which tills house is to deliver for the consolidation of the K'uglish debt.

Since the suppression of the prunH, there have boun published in Mexico two sheets eulogizing Santa Anna, and one (of which I enclose a copy) which has for its title, in large golden letters, the following :? " Thl harry aitkabanck o? thi 19tii or May ok th?. i huikut year." I to sole object is the oxtolwunt of Santa Anna, elevating hiin to apogee, a* a recompense for all the ill he has done. The other, which 1 have not been able to obtain, calls for a dictatorship as a salvatory means for the oountry Also there has appeared here a volume (which I send) eutitled " Tribute to Trnth." in this book you will see the lancc of Aniozoc, such as it was, which is the truth, and not as the author of the '' happy appearance" paints it. SantaAnna tied at Amozoc the same as he did at Cerro Oordo,with his 'iOOO herses.with troopers armed, or rather they made him " walk a pace with only three discharges of American artillery; as we are all perfectly aware that at the ttrst tire he changed his position, at the second til- troops lost their order, and at the third they all fled in different directions. Santa Anna may say'he made the Americans run, but it was because he was in front and run better than they could. Truly does the author of the " Tribute to Truth '' say that from what has been seen at Cerro Oordo and Amozoc, it appears that instead of teaching the Mexican soldiers to tight, he only enlightens them as to the manner of flying id suameiui uisoruer General Scott ?u at Tuebla on the 30tb, where he wm waiting to be joined by the foroen which lately left here,and which, an we have heard, had arrived atPerote on the 30th. * * * * * KL JAROCHO.

I wish I oouldgive my mind a literary turn, to compensate for the inactivity of uiy body A lethargy baa taken possesion of tuy senses, which even developed through thla epistle, may make your readers fleep, and if It were not that bile occasionally mores me, I should become as torpid an a sloth. Of all places in the world, the one best calculated to make a man laay aud stupid is Saratoga. In the morning people of enterprlze wander to the spring and praetice hydraulics, with the pleasant idea that they can till themselves with salt water aud fresh health at the same time; but .having no confidence in any kind of water cure, 1 lie abed until it become* absolutely necessary to dress for breakfast, and here let me remark, that this ia, at Saratoga, the only pleasant meal. You have a white cloth, fresh rolls, good code*, and little noise. At dinner, the clatter, hurry, and fuss, are annoying in the extreme. Besides, unless favored by fortune, or a knowing waiter, you are likely to be placed opposite some broadfaced gentleman with two xkinny daughters, who having heard that the waters are good for dyspepsia, are experimenting upon their gastric capacity with such compounds a* would dismay any cathartic in the world. After breukfast, the women disappear, and the men ilimU Liiiun tlirniitfli f)iu amnkn fit' th?lr uunueu high noon, when but a few troubled Hpiritu parade the piazza, the crowd which appeared at breakfast time having mysteriously absconded. Until dinner the hot stillness In intolerable. In the afternoon. Schneider's band discourses sweet music in the shade of fine trees; the children romp on the green Award; the ladles promenade gently within hearing of the harmonious strains; the gentlemen, with their feet in various attitudes, smoke themselves into Como, and, about four o'clock, seek their apartments for plethoric slumbers, whence they emerge just in time for tea, with their eyes looking as If they had just left an Irish wake, and their brains seething with stupidity. Tea ooncluded, segars blaze once more; the women parade through the now shaded walks; low conversation Is heard pleasantly murmuring under the trees until the darkness comes, and theu white kids twinkle along the piazzas. The sounds of muxio are heard from the parlor, the waltz, polka, and quadrille, Mutter the young company, and flirtations proceed, as aye they will, until the hour when the beds invite the weary to repose Then the gentlemen, who have waltzed and flirted to their hearts' content, rush tumultously to the bar, intersperse noisy criticisms on the events of the day, with nibbles of crackers and cheese. and settle their thoughts and limbs with a cobbler or a julep. Out for the company one would soon be tnnuyer in a place like this To an observer there is presented a variety of character sufficient to exhaust his speculalions, satisfy his spleen, and amuse his leisure The antiquated mil ionaire hobbles about the walks exulting over his wealth, giving the order for wine half an honr befote dinner, and loud enough to attract the attention of the quiet groups on the piazza, on whom he bestows a triumphant gaze, setting them down for poor devils, to whom choice wine Is a rare occurrence. With what a sullen frown he lifts his glass when a meek gentleman opposite at the table sends champagne to a dozen friends, dispenses sherry with equal liberality, and tells bow tired ho lias become of Johannenberger.

' than whom no man Is more ready or more distinguished in acts of benevolence. This watering place continues to be crowded by 4istlnguifhed persons from all parts of the States. Tho arrivals on Saturday exceeded one hundred, and all thu dwellings In the neighborhood may be said to be colonised; and to and trom which, to the Pavilion, omnibuses from the New York lines run with tolerable reguI larity, though at rather exorbitant prices I I think 1 havo timu. hefinro t.h? daMrtum r.f il,- i to give you a hasty sketch of a very novel ulTair oeourrinn here on Saturday last. The Idea of which originated, without doubt, in the mind of some member of the better part of creatiou, an a acheme to alleviate, in a degree, the fashionable-t of both I sexes from the labor and trouble of " dressing for dinner1' in hot weather. Any thing that would approach eveu thin desideratum was very naturally and eagerly embraced?It was no less than tnat the company sojournlng at this house, old and young, gentle and simple, temperance and spiritual, should dine for a day in an open beautiful wood, the table overspread only by the thick shade of lofty trees, and the blest canopy of heaves. The thought was electric? and so was the mode In which the dinner table for more than three hundred persons with all its appendages, even to the most minute artiole, transferred to an adjoiniDg forest, at the usual hour of dinner, and announced by the gong. It would have afforded joy and gratifloation to a benevolent heart?indeed to any heart, to see the ladies go forth in their usual morning dresses,?their shilling calicoes- so 1 cool and neat, the gentlemen with their linen coats and jackets. Comfortable and happy night to see such a party, sotted at ample tables, in the midst of twenty-live acres of woodland. No crowding and knocking or elbows here? no spilling of soups upon starched dresses no crowding of waiters on your shouldem? all free and roomy? the music, mounted on a platform of plank, extended from the liitvbs of two tree*. The dinner neud not be spoken of ; it varied in no de gree from thosu always given, and always good; but it was clear to my mind, that the occasion was not to be passed over without getting from some of the many dis uitjiuoiiiu pnuiu I'lusuuv, luou iuuuhum mat uuro, tn.C. StC. I should have remarked that nmoDg the invited guests wan the proprietor of the forest, Mr. <auage, a wealthy and somewhat eccentric gentleman, who resides in the neighborhood, and who acceded moot kindly to the proposition to ocoupy hi* groundH In the manner Htatud. II seemed appropriate that the health of thin gentleman should be first drank. Mr. White rose and remarked, that during a period of more than twenty Tears, that he had visited this delightful watering place, he had enjoyed the acquaintance of the gentleman whoso health ho had the honor to propose; and he would remark that the appropriation of these valuable grounds to the use of tbii distinguished company, was no new or isolated aot of beneTOlence on the part of this gentleman. The remainder of the remarks of Mr. White were -very appropriate. He then proposed the health and welfare of Mr. Cauage. This gentleman, who is a plain farmer, and an exceedingly good liver, replied, that whatever he had, and whenever it was in hla power to make his friends oomfortable and happy, he always felt It a duty to do so, as he always desired to be happy himself?he bad rarely had the honor of associating with an assemblage like the present?he had been Informed that thoy belonged to a society called the" upper crust" ?he was fond of the upper crust himself, but he had been much disappointed in the expected crustiness of the company here. He would give, as a toast, succestt to all taidertakings of this sort. Mr. Tuckkb, the President of the day, next proposed the health of Mr. Cranston, the esteemed proprietor of the Pavilion., Mr. Chanhton replied in a few remarks, in which he feelingly expressed his gratitude and thanks for the handsome manner in which he had been noticed: he regretted that his feeble health, having only in part recovered from the wounds of au assassin, IWCelv- ' ed a few month* since at Baltimore, prevented his giving that attention to the numerous visiters at his | uouxe which luey ho inucn ueserveu. ile closed IIin remarks by stating that, when his health should be restored, he designed to make some extended improvement* at this watering place, by wblcb the comfort of his many kind friends would, lu futuro, be much promoted Home allusion having been made, of :t complimentary character,to the Southern States. Mr. Sullivan, a distinguished member of the Southern bar. replied at con siderable length in discussing the institution ot slavery ?hig delineation of the habits of the colored population was extremely just and amusing. It was new. i believe, to all present, that thu science of phrenology originated among the colored population of the South This, however. was shown most clearly by Mr. Sullivan, who byethe-bye, is one of the best public speakers I have ever heard His argument, facts, and conclusion, made It clear to every mind present, that Oall and Spurzhelm were floored, and all their followers with tbem. The day, the dinner, thu concert?all, all, were deyghtfui. The remarks made by many of the gentlemen present, among the number may be named Mr. Clinton, Whitney, risk, Paulding. l'ost, New bold, Van H&useller, and ( ommodore llotfman, were exceedingly happy and appropriate. The day closed with a concert, in which two distinguished artists on their way to join the operatic choir at Havana, volunteered and delighted the audience. These artists, Signor Sulvani, and bis daughter. Signorita Cuttano, have become great favorites. Other excitements are on foot. Newport, Aug. lath, 1?47. Puin/;s at Newport. Of ail the watering places to which the warm in frame and in spirit resort, Newport Is that which combines for the pleasure-seekers and invalid the most varied attraction. So much has already been written of the Invigorating air, the beautiful and retired drives, and luxurious sea bathing, that It would be needless to indulge in rhetoric to convince you of the enchantment lingering around this favored island. It would seem, indeed, as if Calypso bad made it her favorite abode, had waruied It with the inspiration of her presence, and lavished here all the prodigal)fasclnatlon of her charming court. Unite certain we are, that were Ulysses revived in the form of a modern tourist, and his yacht driven by some favoring gale on our beach, it would require more than the lectures of that able pedagogue Mentor, to Induce him to refuse the spell, and fly from the wiles and witchery of the fairies more enticing than the airy nymphs who dwelt in the grottoes of Kenelon divinity. No bore like Mentor is tolerated here, but Fashion and her prime minister, that reign supreme, partly by the " grace of (tad," like Victoria,but still more by the grace and influence of woman. Here the statesman and the scholar, the author, and the poet, relax from their sohemes, forget their heart-wearing cares, and yield unreluctantly to the delightful follies of the hour. While the mob of the Titles, the snob and the gent, the petty pretenders, retort for a week to Saratoga, disguised in stage l'oppery, a warranted imitation, according to their creed, or D'Orsay or Montpensier, the wealth, wit. and fashion from all the influential circles in every quarter of our Union, fly to Newport to assemble their various ooterles, which united form a cosmopolitan society, liberal, elegant, and unostentatious, displaying the highest exemplar of American manners. /\ij?i nffur uiu iiowuur^ {irnihiu ujuri* vniuitub traction than during too panning season The purest gold of fashion, the very refined ami sublimated ejnbadimant of ion la diffusing itn Influence around The air and the fog have an aristocratic flavor.?

Peter Pools, a negro man who voluntarily returned to slavery rather than enjoy freedom In New York. Peter Poole was a blacksmith, who was owned by our friend, the Hon. H H. Thompson, Senator from Spartanburg; and having been faithful and earned for his master a large runt of money, he was by his liberality, only nominally a slave, and Col Thompson paid hiiu large wages t'nder the laws of South Carolina, he could not manumit him; and as he might have fallen Into the hands of a less liberal master In the ev tnt of Col Thompson's death, he gave Teter permission to depart for a "free State," and furnished him with proper papers to go wherever he choose. Soma time last year be proceeded to Charleston, but eoold not get a passage in any ship to New York, although he waa vouched for by Mr. Bomar, who resides in that eity, and who knew all the circumstances connected with his leaving Mr. Bomar wrote to Col.

They frequently urged him to proceed to Canada, bating tney would send bis wife on alter him He waited patiently, listening to their promises, and losing dally by lack of work, low wages, and high board, until patience itself was exhausted. In his own werds, "They were the best hamls at talkinc 1 ever heard." Mr. Kalaev witt his good Iriend. and at last, gaining confidence In I'eter, proposed to give f. joo toward* the purchase of hie wife, provided the Abolitionists who had volunteered to do so, would make up the balance required , and In order to test their sincerity, went round with him to see what they Intended to do. They, however, declined, and care an an excuse "that It wai against their creed to purohase human flesh.-' Kven oharlty and their boasted principles of humanity could not induce then to depart from their principles, although they had promised this honest negro to redeem hi* wife from ulavery "Peter than decided to return home, and risk the inevitable conae<iuenc? of being made a slave again. The Abolitionists endeavored 'to dissuade him from this, as they said "It would be against their cause." and he beliavaa they would nut have allowed him to depart, if be had not kept hln further intentions secret. Thin he did, and meeting with Dr. liennett, desired to return home under hi* protection. Dr. Bennett Informed him of all the oonseijuences. and put him In possession of all the Information in his power, at the name time warning him that ha would become a slave the moment be reached Houth Carolina With this knowledge, he determined to return, and reached here last week on bis way tohls master. He says "he was a slave thirty-four years, and a freeman one. and decides in favor of slavery in Mouth Carolina He also sayt. "he could not make a support for himself and wife In New V'ork. and could not enjoy life as well there a freeman, as here a slave."
