We regret tolearn that the Tampieo mail | was stolen at an early hour yesterday morning, and ri tied of a portion of Its content*. Some of the letter* were subsequently rticovered, though the rogue supposed he had disposed of Ihem by casting them into* water oloset. In the mail was a letter addressed to Wm. Swift, Esq , from the contents of whtoh it would appear that three U S. treasury notes, numbered 331, 3'JJ, and 3J3, for $.r>(K) each, have been abstracted. They were dated Oot. 31, ltUti. It is supposed that other valuable letters have been stolen. Capt. White's company of the 3d Louisiana battalion received orders at Vera Crux to embark on board the New Orleans and proceed to Tampico. They did so at once, and reached their destination on the 1th inst The Tampioo Sentinel says they mustered one hundred men rank and file. Capt. Kairchild's company paraded in Vera Cruz on the tith inst., fully armed and equipped. They made a flue appearance The following morning they started out on a scout. Lieut. Waters, with a detachment of Capt. Besanoon's company, returned from a scout on the tttn lost. About 15 miles from the oity while riding along the banks of the Medelliu river, they were flred into by some Mexicans concealed in the bushes on the opposite side of the river, but no barm was done. The Sun says that one of the party, Mr. Wilkinson, being In advance, entered a house which had, from all appearance, been abandoned with precipitation, and found in it some papers, among which was the following pass 'id Company ok the East. , The chiefs of guerillas will please let the bearer, Crespin Marin, pass unmolested, with ten mules, as he goes to Vera Cruc to get provisions for the guerillas. Ciod and Liberty ! Kstero, August 5, 1847. JUAN ABURTO. To the uomiuauders of guerrillas. A train left the evening of tho Hth inst, for the army above ; it was escorted by about 1000 men. The following officers are enumerated by the Sun an commanding them:?Capts. Clarke, Morris, Alvord, Hoke, llornsby, and Winans, of the infantry; and Lieut. Jones, Cantwell, Wad Jell, Wheeden, Wilklns, Doyle, Sears and Creanor, of the artillery. Some accounts set down the number of troops in this train at from l.>00 to iOOO; our vnu (.Vlionpunucut BUjrtt UUV tllUUHUnU. The Sun relates that ou the ;)d itint . a man named Thomas Clark, belonging to the first Infantry, a prisoner in the guard-house of the palace, tried to pass the soldier then on guard, and. to accomplish his purpose aeiaed one end of the soldier's musket,and made some efforts to take it out of his hands. The latter flred at Clark, the ball passing in through his side and coming (<ut through his back. The ball afterwards wounded another Ban named George Kvana, oue of the Mmpany of mounted men under Capt. liesancon, and finally grazed the hip of the sentry at the other end Of the portallis, also belonging to the first infantry. The name of the man who fired is James Ilobinson. Our correspondent writes that his conduct was fully Justified. The wounded men were immediately sent to the hospital, and it is said Clark and Kvaus are dangerously wounded. On the 4th Inst., two out throats, l>y some supposed to be guerillas, attacked a sergeant of the 14tb Infantry, while on his way from the city to the camp at Vergara oth Mexicans were well armed, while the serguant bad only his sword, lie usod it t* good purpose, drivlug oS the Mexicans, but receiving several slight wounds hlmceif. A d? tachmont of the Georgia cavalry was sent out under (.'apt I.oycll, to endeavor to overhaul the two Mexicans, but the pursuit was vain. A small lot of pack mules arrived at Vera Cruz on the tith iust, Irom the interior. The owiu-rs would not disclose how they passed the guerillas, but it is threwdly suspected that they paid four dollars a head foi leave to come in. The following day one hundred and fifty pack mules arrived from Cordova, laden with sugar aud Mexican brandy. No doubt is entertained that Jarauta or some of the' guerilla chiefs have adopted tile plan of granting permits in order to raise the wind. Hopes are entertained that in this way some trade will be carried on between Vera Cruz and th* interior. Nothing later has been received by this arrival from luc uriuy at rueDiii. various rumors liaa reached Vera Crui, purporting to be from Mexico One of theae is to the effect that commissioners bad actually been appointed by Santa Anna to meet Mr. Triat. Our correapondent at Vera Cruz, writing on the 7th Inst., attaches importance to thia rumor. Wo may recur to it. Ou the 3d inst. a mail arrived in Vera Cruz from Jalapa. The Haletin ite In j Noliciat waa received by it as late aa the 30th of July. Thii ia a little paper thoroughly Mexican, published in Jalapa. From it we learn more particulars of lien. Tierce's march through that town than had before been received. The holet n sayi that the train which the general eacorted paaaod by without lialtiag, but he. with 300 dragoona entered the city, and addressed tho following note to the corporation?(We give the Sun'i translation:) Jai.ai'a, July 'Jti, 1847.

The reply of the corporation is given on the Spanish side of tbe Sun '1 he members are verv indignant at what they consider the harsh language or the general ?

They deplore their unforturate position, being dufencelesa This they say should have protected them from insult, lien fierce is the tiat American officer. they ?ay. who has thus had occasion to tind fault with them The reply is ''pretty sharp'' upon the general, but it is hardly worth translating. We give from the Sun of Jinuhuac the following summary of news made from the Holrtin : ? The same paper says that a Mexican, ( 'traitor," it says.) was encountered .by a party of guerillas, and being auspicious, he was required to undergo an examination, but having offered re?Utauc?. hu wa< killed. Three Urge packages, containing letters from the officers of the army, to their friends in the United States, were found in his possession The Buletin adds : ''In said correspondence It is stated that great fcdiscord exists between the volunteers and regulars of the American army, and that thl* may cause them to lightamoug themselves " That paper is delighted with this, and takes that opportunity to call the Vmericans "highway rol>l>cr?," ' Vankees," Uc It also hays that it appears from inter cepted letters, that Oen. Pillow and other American chiefs are of opinion Hint (he attack upon the capital will not be successful-- Lhat the commanding offloers consider the capital to be in a very strong state of defence, as much for its fortifications as for the number of men who will bn brought in action -and Anally that the guerillas had completely interrupted the correspondence between PueMa and Vera < rur The letters, after h? ving been read, were sent to the government at Mexiro. Kour American <1. ,-orters arrived at Jalapa, on the iOth ult three of whom were from Puebla and one from Oen. Plercs's train. They were to leave Jalapa for Coatepec. The Huh' n xtys that those from Puublareport that the deceit ion was wry great from the ranks of the American army, and that seventy-three deserters were advertised in one day, at Pnebla The one from Den Pierce's train, is said to report that wagons full of sick follow him. We don't believe one word of this. The Hnlflin further says that the Inducements held out to Americans to desert are not enough; that if the govenment would promts* them money or any other rewards ,Scott's army would be destroyed It counsels the Governor* of States to take measure* to foment and encourage desertion The same paper says assassinations are frequent in Jalapa, an well ?f Americans as Mexicans A small garrison Is required there for the protection of the Inhabitants. The Pnlttin of the Utth ult savs it* osner of the .17th wan ho fur from giving offence to the American* that it

wan bought by many officers and soldier*. The Bnhtln expresses its surprise that the American* had not rebuked its freedom with thura, an Santa Anna woulJ have done with the pref of the capital. Another courier from falapa arrived at Vera Cru* on the 7th inst., and by thin we have received the holetin of the Ist and 3d of August. The letters received by this mail give no later news from Mexico or I'uebla, but ome further details. We announced a week ago the death of a messenger from Mr. Kendall, named Kranciico Ksplna. We now learn to our surprise that he was not Killed outright when takon. He was tried, and condemned to be shot. The sentence was executed the morning of the 3d August. We And In the Bnlrtin little new* worth copying, but some long articles whlrh we have not room for to-day. even if tney were worth translating. We turn to other Mexican pupera, In which we perceive a series of decreet of !>ant& Anna, promulgated through ('en. l.ombardine. They refer to the organisation of troops, forced loans, kc., and are not generally very Interesting. A decree of the 1 ith July orders a strict compliance with a previous one, directing Americans to leave the city. It commands them to leave within forty-eight hours for Han Joan del Mo, a town in the State or (^ueretaro forty-three league* from Mexico. Those thus ordered from the capital include not only Americans by birth, but naturalised citizens of tha I) nlted States, and all who under any pretext have previously obtained leave to remain. Tnay IKK i )RNING, AUGUST 23, 1& are commanded to coullne themselves to Ban Juan strictly, and especially not to tn?vo a stop toward* the capital. A stringent decree ?u iasued on the 1.1th of July, the preamble of which ussignii the " movement of the enemy upon the capital " as an exouse for its harshness Kvery soldier found ouUide the line of sentinels of the city, no matter under what pretext, unleaa he hare a written pass from a chief of the line, lit declared a deserter, and is to be shot as such. Those whe may assist or encourage soldiers to desert are also to be dealt with summarily. The last clasue of the deoree, however, allow* those who mar already hare deserted to give themselves up within lour days, and so escape all penalties. Another deoree, dated the 1st of July, provides for the organisation of two companies of infantry, to be formed out of the " Foreign Legion," which are to be known as the "First and Secoud Companies of Aetive Infantry of St. Patrick." Kach company is to oonsist of a captain. lieutenant, two nub-lieutenants, a first sergeant. four second seraeantu nln* mnumii *> >? tearor which the state In wbloh it is fouud ought to Infuse; nothing id ?k<in which ui?y indioataffcMiignation and rancor, which the proximity of an invading army, which it cnn never love, should inspire in patriotic hearts I do not understand the .Mexican*.

I am here among them, seeing them, and even tnu? I am confounded without knowing what to think, or judge of them. Seeing the protests and promises which are dally made, I cannot conceive how they would humiliate themselves shamefully by concluding a ridioiflous and dishonorable peace; out uotwithstanding all this, 1 repeat, it Is assured, and it is believed, by a great number of respectable persons, that very soou will be concluded an amleaI ble adjustment. Let us wait patiently, since it will not be long before we will know the result, and then we will be able to judge more properly of these men and their words. THE ARMV OK (.EM.

The town has been been full of rumors for the last woek relative to the movements of the enemy and the prospect of peace, and the camp has of aourse buen fruitful and multiplied, bringing forth the most splendid improbabilities. [We omit these rumors, as they were all unfounded. | The news supposed to have been brought by express from Han Luis, of which I Npoke In my last, was of no importance whatever.

This morning four Mexicans came to Kneantada. about twelve miles from here, and stated that In the Xaoatecas pass, to called, twenty-five or twenty six miles from here, they had been attacked by a Mexican guerilla band and robbed of qvery thing about them of the slightest value: that thev had then ho?n t>i>?. near by, blindfolded, and tied. and kept theru for two daya. when they were releaaed.

There are various other decrees in the papers, which, if not otherwise interesting. prove how absolute is the authority of Santa Anna. Under the powers conferred upon him to resist the invasion, he is In fact, though not in name, a supremo Dictator. We have received by thin arrival a copy of the Tampico Stntintl of the ?Ih innt. Thut paper sums up the state of ailairs in that oity thus:? We have not been attacked, we are not all prisoners, nor is the yellow fever oarrying death and destruction into the dwelling plsceg of onr inhabitants; but on the contrary, we are in the enjoyment of a reasonable nbare of that precious boon, health; there being no epidemio amoogst us, and what few cases of sicklies* that really do exist are of a mild character, nud readily give way to medical treatment. As to our being attacked, wr hope we may be, but the prospect look* dull at the present writing The Sentinel takes exceptions to the strictures of the press upon the expedition to Huejutla. We have neither time nor room to discuss the subject to-day. We hare reoeived no letters from Taiupico by this arrival. Can the following order of Col. Gates have anything to do 4with this?

The shameful apathy In which it lies, manifests clearly that as regards the national defence, there Is more Hmoke than ttre; (nm o rl nn'ilii i/ur Im nuecel,) since having had and having yet the best opportunities in the world to destrov the American army whioh is in this vicinity, everything lies in masterly inactivity. I have conversed to day with several persons, who, like myself, pry into every thing among them ? there are editors and compilers, who, as it is to be suppposed, are now more anxious than ever to know what passes It is manifest that all op?rations iudlcate that very soon we shall have peace?perhaps before a month?and it is certain that all the preliminaries are already concluded. I, in truth, am astonished to see Hants Anna and his followers continue always showing themselves disposed to bring the war to an end?uto die or to conquer'"?but without ever their actions according with their words. We have forces and arms sufficient to exterminate an Invading army even double that which General Scott brings; but, according to my mode of seeing, it wants the principal:? decision 'i he, articles which appear in the Government paper, are all full of energy and patriotism?but unfortunately for Mexico, it seems that all the patriotism and energy are locked up in printing.

Kxtraot of a letter from an ollcer in Company A in the Massachusetts Regiment, dated Oralvo, July 12, 1847 :? Col. Wright Is the moat glorious fellow that ever commanded a regiment in this oountry. He proves to be a man and a gentleman in every respect. Since he arrived in Mexico he has dropped polities as far as the regiment is concerned, and since he was elected Colonel, his onlv ambition seems to be, to make the Massachusetts Regiment the crack regiment of the oountry. ? ? ? We have a great many reports concerning the probable Dlan th? MmxIoavm will ulnnf. fn thwlr nntLln*?i?/l ????? ral attack upon the pouts forming this line; but we cannot m vet form an opinion as to their real intentions. I think Gen. Taylor supposes we shull nee some fun ?oon, for a short time since he sent 1111 order to Camargo for a twelve pound howitzer for the use of this post, which piece with the implements and a large quantity of ammunition came up by the last train of wagons. We have large quantities of ball and buckshot cartridges for muskeU also. Our encampments is broken up, and we have moved into an old oouvent, which is very large and of nutftoirnt strength to stand a long siege. ****** We have a tine breeze here, nearly all the time, but during the day we find exposure in the open air almost insupportable. Another thing makes it still more disagreeable ?that is, the limestone formation of the earth?the reflection of the sun from which, is almost torture to the eyes. On this account a number of our men are troubled with opthamla. and la accordance with the umtom of the country, it is usual for all but the guard to take a siesta after dinner. Our command haw been busy sinoe it came hrre, in burying men of the North Carolina regiment, which, bv the way, is n? regiment any how. Our regiment is small, but it is healthier and in a better state of discipllne^than any volunteer regiment in the eountry, at least I nave been told so by officer* in the regular service navar-.

Kaston't command, giving a full account of the late wassaore of eight men. on the Arkansas, of which I wrote you a few days since. The particular* are about these As is usual in all newly raised corps of volunteers, but little discipline had characterized the command of Col. Kanton. The soldier* would wandi'r off from camp, and frequently unarmed. On the north side of the Arkansas, along the wagon route, there ia very little timber, and on camping it became necessary to send to the south side for fuel. The men, though fre<(Uently reprimanded for so doing, were in the habit of crossing in disorder, and often unarmed. On the morning of the^2Ut of July, about twenty-five meu crossed In this manner, and scattered out from the river bank, over an area of several hundred yards. Suddenly a host of savages?my correspondent says not less than five hundred?rose up from the grass, armed with spears, and commenced among the volunteers an indiscriminate slaughter. Such of the men us were armed, fought, as best they might, against such odds, but most of them rushed at once for the river. One was chaMi-d into the stream by an Indian, and there killed. Another was severely wounded on the bank As soon as the tiring was heard In camp, a number of the companions of the unfortunate men rushed to the rescue, perceiving the approach (of whom the Indians tied, leaving on the field olght dead and four wounded. The names of those who fell are as follows:?Of rapt. Iiarne's company, killed?Henry Harlow. Valentine Itegg, William Duncan.

He was scalped in a shocking manner, thii entire head being flayed ! Three days after he was still alive, and hopes were entertained for his recorery. The rest of the wounded, It was thought, would also recorer. Of the killed, .four were scalped. The enemy, it is supposed, lost one man killed, and at least one wounded. Several were boiue from the field. The savages were Camanches, and bad oae white man, armed with a ritle, among them. He spoke Knglish, and was beard to say, " Come on, if you will fight." A most shocking Instance of barbarity to slave occurred in this olty recently, and the tacts have just become publio. Last week the coroner was called to hold an inquest on the body of a colored female child, nine years of age, the property of a person by the name of ('ordell, who lives a tew mile* out of town. The child had been hired to a family by the name of Tanner, residing in this city, and it is alleged that authority had been given by Mrs. T. te a negro woman to correct the child at will. A few days since, the little girl was sent home to Mr. Cardell in a dying condition, and almost flayed alive. She lingered a short time, and died The jury of inquest fouud on examining the corpse, that the bouy had been deeply excoriated from the crown of the head downward, apparently with a raw hide. There were several deep cuts through the scalp, laying the scull bare, and around the neck, and on several parts of the extremities were traces of cord. The child no doubt had been bound and strangled to prevent her cries. Hhe was insane when brought to her master's house, and begged Incessantly for bread, showing that among the horrid craelties practiced by her toriuenters, starvation had not been overlooked. Horrid as are these circumstances, no arrest has yet Jievn made in connection with them! Yours, AU(il!M.

I cams over the Saratoga railroad to Schenectady, and then procured a seat in the great western train, for Herkimer, Oneida county. The Saratoga railroad was never In better condition. The company are very vigilant In their efforts to guard against accidents, and tho cars have been ao arranged, that accidents from what are oailed "anake heacs," oannot posalbly occur; the road la therefore quite as safe as any road with the heavy iron rail. The officers are gentlemen; and Mr. Wheeler of Saratoga, Is especially entitled to the thanks of the pnblie.for hie Indefatigable attention to the oonvenienoe of travellers: h'i in a man of industry and enterprise, and an honeel man At Herkimer, I assumed a seat upon the box of a pott coach by the side of an old whip of thirty years expertenue lUchtteld Springs, which are in Otsego oounly, are only thirteen utiles from Herkimer, and I remained at the side of the veterau whip during the entire route. The road from Herkimer to these springs. Is aa asoent of over nine hundred feet. It Is through a heavenly country, abounding with fruits and flowers and rich pastures; the scenery is also bold and sublime. It Is one of the finest portions of the State; and as my eyu followed the int?nninAtiIn forests, anil IIM It nunnlnl tho kmii acres of yellow grain with rapture, I congratulated myr*#*lf upou the rut resources of America.

May this great people, who are spreading over this ftpieudid mechanism of nature and absorbing it* boundless wealth, be worthy of auch munificence May they be the models of the world, ami the cheerful agents of the divinity In the diffusion of virtue and liberal principles throughout the earth. I found my companion upon the box of the posteoaeh, , to be an Intelligent and amiable man. A little way from Herkimer, a child appeared in the road with a basket ef whortleberries; the child gave them to the driver without speaking a word, and they were carefallv stowed hwbv upon the top of the coach. 1 afterwards learned that this noble fellow was daily aocustomed to recelv* a basket of berries from the child, for which be would pay her something more than the market price. When he arrives at the Springs be offers the berries for sale, und if a sale is effected, a part of the money whloh he baa given for the berries is returned to him; but If be Is unuble to effect a sale be gives them to some poor busily perhaps; but he never refuses to receive the berries Irom the child nor to pay her for them.
