By an arrivakyesterday from Camargo, we are informed that an order nad been received there from General Taylor, directing a halt of the heavy wagon trains which were being gut ready for Monterey, and which it waa supposed were intended for the march upon San Luis We cannot learn whether the danger* of the road, or a final resolve not to make any further advance with the amy, ban induced this order; but, from other clrcumstnnces. we judge the latter cause to have dictated it. w?,n?T# no runner nc?i oy m is arrival irom me army. Intelligence wan received mi Saturday last. confirmed since by letters from Orralvo to the yth lust. that a icoutlng party of 17 Toxan*. commanded by Captain Baylor, ordered out by Col. Abbott, commandant at Carralvo, to scour the country between that post and Monterey, had fallen in with a large body of Mexicans, and all been killed but throe. Our letter* inform ua that Capt. Baylor left Cerralvo on the Cth imt. and, following out hid instructions, visited several ranohoa in the neighborhood of where the recent attacks had been made upon the trains At two of these ranohos. goods and property captured from the trains were found seoreted in the houses, and the guilt of a participation in these robberies being clearly proven against the Mexican residents, the property was retaken, the dwellings of tho guilty burned, and several known desperate characters killed. With three prisoners which he had captured, (.'apt. Baylor was returning to the main road, when he found himself surrounded by a large force of Mexicans, stated at 300, undoubtedly the same force which had attacked tho trains previously, lie was completely hemmed iu,aad the Mexloaus charged upon bis small band, killing many of them the first discharge of firearms. Three of the party effected their escape by crawling into tho chaparral, and got into Cerralvo dreadfully lacerated with thorns. When they last saw ( apt. Baylor, he was wounded and unhorsed,but still fighting, and only three of his men were In their saddles. They think it impossible that any more could have escaped. and do not believe that the Mexicans made any prisoners. Two days had elapsed since they got back to Cerralvo, and nothing had been heard of any of the rest of the party. In the dwelling of one of the Mexicans made prisoner by Capt Baylor, (so the men who escaped reported), were found two letters from the chief Alcalde of Cerralvo t* Canales, informing him In whose possession he had placed oertaln goods oaptared from the trains, which he (Canales) bad empowered him te dispose of In Cerralvo. and also giving him to understand that if he stood in need of arms, horses, or men, be had but to make bis wishes known, and they would be attended to These letters were in ( apt. B.'s possession when attacked, and havn been recovered by the Mexlcaus. In consequence of the report made to Col. Abbott, he has had the Alcalde and several other influential Mexioans arrested. After confirming the above, an oflloer In the Massachusetts regiment writes from Cerralvo to a friend In this city, under date of August 8th:? The two list trains up were attacked,and 30 or 40 pack mules out off from each. A train left here yesterday for Monterey, ana we have positive 1..formation that 400 Mexioans are laying on the road to out them off. Things at this post are in rather a state of excitement?hardly a day passes without somo person being murdered on hi'- ivau, nuu ifir iajr iiuir, kuuhiuk UWb luv DllflUJ in large force in our immediate vlciuity, without the meaDH of acting, except oil the defensive. We have no mounted fo*oe at the port, nor the means ot mounting a Binglo man of our own, should an extreme cafe of necessity require it. It ig much to be degired that the Government will goon gee clearly the great folly of placing troops along thig line, with their bunds tied, to be made a laughing stock of by an enemy go contemptible bh the Mexioaug. i do not know when we ghall more on, but If at all, tome where abuut the flrgt of September, T1IK BATTLE OF UIO KRIO. [From the New Orleans Delta, August '24 ] We think it not improbable, that thig long expected engagement. which In to deoide at leagt the lgeue between the military power of tbe two oountneg, ocourred on or about the 15th of thig month. If ouropinion be justified by the event, we ghall not hear the regult of the battle until th? last of tbe month. livery thing geemg to lndloate that a momentous and deciglve contest baa taken plaoe. The Mexicans were unanimous in their determination to out the hazard of their die, upon the issue of one last, uuited and vigorous effort in defence of their capital They will make no treaty until they have iuspired their euemleg with re spent, by a manly resistance. If ever a people had a motive to light?if ever men were so situated and olroumstanced. as to make fighting an unavoidable necessity, and auything short of the most determined courage, a shame aud reproach -the I Mexicans are that people. Not only honor, but sound policy, dictates this manly resistance. A generous foe could never refuse liberal terms to a brave enemy. Thus prompted,and favored by great advantaged of position, the Mexicans will no doubt make Klo Krio. or some other difficult point of the road, the scene of the last trial of strength between the two countries. Santa Anna will now be able to assemble '20,000 good soldiers, with forty or fifty cannon, a prodigious force, to operate un Jer the cover of rocky heights, masked batteries.

THE F.NQt.ISlI INTERFERENCE. [Krom the New Orleans Picayune, Aug 'J4 ] We have ree.lted by the steamship Kauuy, a letter from our Vera Cruz correspondent, dated the 13th inst, In which he says that an extraordinary express was despatched that morning at 4 o'clock, by the Knglish consul, to overtake Ouneral Scott.

At tbe tall of Iturbide, In 1838. these States revolted from the Central Government of Mexico, and formed the Conloderaoy of the States of Guatemala, or Ci-ntial America Hut their Independence did not save them from the disastrous party strlfts which have so long dlvidt d the Mexican people. The contacts ot'iween the Centralists and Kederali'.ts raged as violently In Guatemala as (hey did U, MeaiCo. The Integrity of the Confederation was endangered and almost broken up by the withdrawal of the liberal State of San Salvador, at tbe third session of their Congress. The assassination of Mores by the wild fanatics of the | ohuroh, and of the central party, and tbe perfect furor RE H RNING, SEPTEMBER 2, Into which the passion* of the people ware excited by the appeals of the priests, overwhelmed, for a while, the liberal party In Central America.' The San Salvador!ana w~re defeated under the walls of the city of Guatemala. The*** open hostilities between the church and oentral party on the one side, and the federalists, or Uberallsts, on tlie other, continued for several year*. In 1899, lien. Morazan, with the army of the San Salvadoreans, or Uberallsts, took th? city of Guatemala and overthrew the ehurch party, banishing the priests, frlara, and the wbole church fraternity. General Ylorasan was lected President. and?the liberal party maintained its ascendancy for eight years At tne expiration of this term, the Stateaof Guatemala, Honduras.

In the meantime, pending the disputes bttween tbe federalists and centralist*. a formidable insurrection vu excited ag ilust both parties. but particularly against the pirtyi iu power, by that bold and sagacious Indian. Carrers, who, by a course of extraordinary and persevering re bell. on. and by strong appeals to the passions of the Indians, who constitute much the most numerous portion of tbe population, succeeded at last in overthrowing both centralists and federalists, and established himself in power. He stlU maintains his authority with a strong hand, and though originally a poor, ignorant Indian, has Improved his opportunities and made himself a popular and successful ruler. From this hasty and Imperfect sketch, our reader* will be able to form some Idea of the charaoter, history and power of the Status of Central America, whose coalition with Mexloo against our country Is strongly invoked by Mexico, and. if we are to believe El Si?lo, not unsuccessfully These States have separate Territorial Governments and Legislatures. The Government of Honduras, which lies on the borders of Yucatan, has taken the lead, and oalled upon its sister States to unite again"t the aggressions of the Republio of the North. We shall wait for further developments on this subject, before we enter into any speculation of tbe probable effects of this new feature of the present war.

The papers of the country generally represent the incoming cotton orop as large and Qno. Some complaint is made of the worm In certain quarters, but little importance Is attached to it. The latest number of the Civilian oopies from the Victoria Jidvncatr the following, at the same time indicating doubts of the authenticity of the Intelligence oontainud In It: ? We learn, from a friend recently from 8an Antonio, in whose statements the utmost reliance may be placed, that on the 'J4th of July, Col. Hays returned from the pursuit of a body of Lipan Indian* who had heen committing depredations upon the frontier A tight took place on the Keen, one of the head waters of the Nueces river, in which six of the Mpans were killed. A Mexican girl about fourteen years old. and u boy about tan, vrtio had been prisoners among the Indians, were brought In. Th? girl was first taken at l.aredo, about a year since. She was afterwards released, and sent borne by the people of San Antonio. She has been a second time taken, and is now a seoond time released by them. Col. Hays also toak a number of horses and mules, which are said to have been stolen from the Americans. Our Informant gathered the above information from the members of the company. He did not talk with Col Hays. He left San Antonio on the evening of the 34th, via Corpus Chrlstl. Twenty-tire miles above San Patricio he passed a large body of Indians, which he supposed to be Cainanohes. enoamped on the ii uruvit. ue i in nun mey number about? one hundred and fltty, and had three hundred head of horses In their posseaaion They cam* from the Rio Grande region and orossing the Nueoes at their encampment, were travelling north. Our Informant alao atatea that on the day before he left San Antonio,an expreas arrived there, bearing despatches to < wlonel Haya from Major Neighbor*, Indian agent. The expreaa atated that the Camauchea had become boatile Hud had ordered all persona who were surveying landa to leave that part of the country. The expreaa also atated that live surveyors, under Mr. Robert Hays, a brother of I Colonel Haya, who were miaalng, had been certainly killed. It waa alao rumored at the agency that Mr Hudson, of Doatrop, with twanty-flvo men who wesu i out surveying on the San Saba, had been killed or taken prisoners. From thk Indian Country?A correspondent ot the St. Louis llevtelle, writing from the Usage nation, says that ths Camanohe Indiana, now in counnil with the Osages, told the latter that the Spauiards. (meaning the Mexlcana, we presume.) had advanced them large iuma of money, and made mauy preaeuta ot mules, aa payment for murdering the Americans who travelled along the road, and destroying their property. In ovder to stimulate them to thia work, large rewarda were liberally paid for every aoalp and oxtail which the Camanchea brought In. It was therefore their intention to take their old stands on both aldea of the Arkanaas river early In the spring. There hua been a powder mill explosion near Xenia, which killed one man. Tub New Mail Arrangement?Ah might be expected, the new arrangement for tne convey iiuce or the mall between New York and Boston, wblob commenced on Monday, liait been a failure no far, and will probably continue to be Tor Home time to comv owing to the determined oppottition with wbich the government line has to contend, after reaching the city. 1'he Ouelda brought the mall from New York to-day, tartlng at half-pant fl, and arriving at about II o'clock. The Traveller, a much Uster boat, had arrived half au hour sooner, and the cars for Hartford with her passengers were starting when the Un>-ida was ubreast the pier at the end of Wharf. In this way the mail has buen left behind for two days, although the government has a contract with the railroad for carrying the mail to Springfield, for two years i to come, for the sum of per annum To i avoid this detention the Postmaster here is about coni ti acting for a land conveyance from this to Springfield 1 direct, under the direction of the P. M. <? . leaving llart! ford to take care of themselves, or use the facilities they ; p*?sess for obtaining the mail at Springfield When the Department has provided for the route ax far as does not appear that they have overcome all their difficulties, for by ? combination of interests between the different Railroad Companies, passengers are ticketed through between Boston and New York for $4 in the old line, being less by H7\ cents than the price charged passengers to this city, and less >1 HTX than they can otherwise obtain passage by this route This, however, is nat a new arrangement, but one adopted previously to secure travel by this route and worki dinadvantageously to the new line It would not he surprising if the understanding between them extended even to the refusal of the mail, unless brought to Springfield by railroad. The passengers by the old line from New York to Boston are taken for four dollars, and if brought to this city, in the opposition boat for nothing, would still be losers to the smount of eighty-seven and a half cents This accounts in part for the Uot that although the Traveller charges fill cents more for passage to this city than the opposition boat, she has three or four times the num ner 01 passengers uiai me oiner ixml Drlngs, and nearly all the through passengers.
