Wa have no time or room to make a summary from our correspondence In additlen to Mr. Kendall's letter*. we give two others, written in the city of Mexico, on the 34th, by foreign houses. One is translated from the Frenoh. It Is well to hare evidence of disinterested foreigners in these matters. By the way of Tampioo we hare letters kindly forwarded to u?. dated Oneniuma, Oct. 3d. The letter Is so brief that we give it here : ? Oienluma, Oct. 3, 1847. When you requested me to give you news from Mexico, there was nothing more than what you were acquainted with, regarding the capture of the city of Meiloo ; and although they are still very meagre and doubtful, 1 am going to tell you what we hare learned by letters from Bachre* Oen. Santa Anna is In Tlascola, with only fire hundred men. It is said, though I do not believe it, that he 1h going to Central America. Oen. Herrera has gone to to organise the government. Bustamente is said to be direoting himself for Mexioo, with the National Guard of Guanaleguate and other places. ~ It seems there are but two papers published in Mexioo, in Spanish and English The post is to be reestablished Oen Scott has imposed a contribution on the corporation of ilMJOO, payable in three weeks, in Instalments of $.V) 000. To this letter we havs a postscript, written by another ! hand, as follows: TiMrice, Oot. 7th, 1647. Gen Santa Anna went on the 18th of September, to j Tolu -a, fourteen leagues from Guadiloupe. with a remnant of his army, lu his carriage. I saw him enter It at Folander. That Santa Anna should b? at Tlascola, as reported in the letter of the 3rd, 1s altogether prababie. Tlascola is dlreody north of Tuebla, about twenty miles distant. Move directly east from Tlascola and you strike the road to Perote. Perote is less than twenty miles. He is near enough to threaten our trains, but not strong enough to effeot much. The Amt-rioan Star was issusd in Mexico on the 18th ultimo, hv Pei'oks nud Bernard We have several nun IxrH of it. but can make but little use of them to-day . The Genrta Republican and the Courier Francaiie have been revived in Mexioo Santa Anna baa returned to Toluea, fifteen miles from Ouadaioupe with the remnant* of hid army, intending, it is thought, to attack our trains.

We publish in this day's Htrald many of the details of intelligence recently received from the city of Mexico, and they remove all doubts as to the safety of our gallant little army. The particulars of the victories achieved by our troops are intensely interesting, and will be read with most absorbing attention. This day's Htrald includes all that has yet come to hand. When we receive any further news from the same quarter, we shall give it to our readers as fully as we can. What we publish to-day, may be relied upon" Tlx* Military Spirit of the American People? Ttae Progress or Republicanism. Notwithstanding the facts ot our history, ever since we first became an independent people, and in spite of the evidence of several successful ware, the people of Europe, until lately, held us in great contempt as a military people. This is perhaps not surprising, considering that, until witnin a few years past, the distance which separated us from Europe was in reality so.much greater than it now is. The salient points of our history, and the events of our world, lost much of their interest in Europe, and excited but little attention, because when first reported there, thev were already comparatively old and past. Another almost sufficient reason why Europe thought contemptuously of us as a military people, was the fact of our enterprise and skill in the pursuit* of commerce. Calling us generically by the name of " Yankees," and that word having become synonymous with a " keen dealer" and skilful shopkeeper, they settled down into the notion that Americans were a people generally destitute of genius and enthusiasm, and so wholly absorbed in the pursuit of money as to be incapable of any other ambition or any other pursuit. The events of the present war with Mexico, related as they now are in the salons of Paris and London almost as soon as they reach us in New York, are beginning, very considerably, to open the eyes of Europe to a better understanding and more correct appreciation of Americans and American character. It is, in sober truth, of very little importance to us to obtain the name and fame of being a warlike people, nor do wc mean to desire by these remarks, that our fame in the world should rest i upon sucn a uasis auu duvii a durumi ui,iui v. I All we desire is nut to be mistaken and not to be belied; that the truth should be known and recognized. Now the truth is, that since the heroic times I of ancient Greece and Rome, there has not been seen in the world a people 60 decidedly martial, i or eminently qualified tor military achievements, | ho soldierlike and spirited, in and for battle, as 1 the American people. We speak the sober conviction of our minds from what we have known?from what we have seen?from what we daily read and hear. So iar from the assertion of this fact deserving to be called bombastic, as Europe is accustomed to treat our just claims to what is due to us, the fact itself is as natural and as inevitable as it is true. It cannot be otherwise, because since the bright days of Greece and Rome, to which we have referred, there has not been in Europe or the world a people endowed with the same institutions, animated with the same spirit, or impelled by the same motives, until we first appeared as a nation on the great theatre of the world. There have been republics since those days; there have ! been republicans; but there have been no democracies in the world since the days of Leonidas and the Thermopylir until now with us in America. This explains the secret; we are a demo : ?j ?i. _ ...? craiic pcujiir; nnu aui;u a ?? mc uuim.v wi things, must rule and prevail and shine and succeed above all other people. e lact of the great military spirit and enthusiasm of the Americans can never be denied by any one who ht>s seen the simplest parade of volunteers, even in citizen's dress Such a martial bearing? such a military abandon?such confidence, cheerfulness, and vigor, stamped on every brow, depicted in every movement, stirred up in every breast, as thoy march along at the <<ound of the drum, is to be seen no where but in Amer The European soldier ib a slave?the American a free man. The European is a machine?the American is spirit and life. The words, in which the author describes the animation of female beauty, may with a little alteration be applied to the American soldier?" War is in all his steps, fight in his eye. In all his motions military spirit." It is the fashion in the present time to decry und abuse many necessary and useful things, and, among these, war. That war is sometimes necessary, no one will deny. If it is necessary, II IllUctl ne useiui. aiuce war is uecessary, nuu often unavoidable, then that martial spit it by which alone it can,be carried on successfully, is something to be envied and admired by men. Such ia the spirit which distinguishes, in a pre-eminent degree,the American people. As a proof of the existence of this spirit among us, if proof were wanting, we beg to refer our readers to the extract from a Kentucky paper given in another column of this day's Herald. The perusal of that article calls to one's mind the scenes such as Thucydides, Xenoplion and Livy have described them in ancient history. There is, in (ifil, a feature of our own history, strong and marked, and possessing a remarkable similarity with the same scenes which occured mo many ages ago. when the bold Thebans followed Epaminonaas to the field, or the hardy Spartans assembled for certain death under the command of Leonidas. Indeed, there are in existence anecdotes which we have heard of the most romantic description; similar little histories are known to every one, and occur in every corner of our great country, all tending to show the military spirit,capacity, energy and devotion of the American people. Many of these anecdotes of high chivalrous bearing, of noble enthu- I niasin, and patriotic devotion, will doubtless be lost to history, and not be gathered up in the paires of our future records, though they are fully equal, in devotion to country, and in painful self-sacrifice, to the best feats recorded of the | heroes of antiquity. _ > i We should like to see these histories collected, which tire scattered in rich profusion up and down the country. We should like to nee related the conduct of Yell of Arkansas, of Pierce of New Hampshire; in n word, of those individuals who, like them, have left home and fortune, and every comfort, to shoulder the musket, and undergo all the hardest privations of the common soldier. Such sre the men who compose our volunteer companies from all the Slates; *uch are the men who form our volunteers, j Thru hundred thousand ?uch mtn at the commencement of thii war, offered tlirmielvet far , the battle ! Their names are on record in the j Hureau of the War Department. They could not all be accepted, hut there they were, anxious to be accepted, and ready to march on to the battle.

Oa the Dlght of the 13th, Santa Anna evacuated all bin positions and retreated from the olty, having had more than one half of hi* army killed and wounded or taken prisoner*. Among the latter was Uen. Bravo, with hla staff, at ( hapoltepee. Sauta Anna found that If he fought aa on the 14th, he would hardly have a body guard left to cover his retreat. barly in the morning the two columns took up their maroh. Generals Qujtman and Smith, at the head of their eolumns, entered the grand national plaaa at 7 o'clock. The columt was formed iu the plait by order of Oen. Quitman. The national flag of the vanguard of tho Cerro Gordo division, while the command came to a present, was flung to the breese on the National Palace, and it now triumphantly waves over the Halls of the Montesumas. Oen. Worth's command halted four or Ave squares from the Flasa, where Col. Garland was wounded. About eight o'olook Oen Scott and staff, In full feather, escorted by the cavalry, came Into the olty, amidst the hussas of the soldiery on all sides.

The New Orleans Dtlta and Timet oontaln some futrher interesting details. A letter is published from Santa Anna?with his address on the resignation of the Presidency, but he dearly continues directing the operations of scattering portions of the army. It is said that he has twenty-are hundred regulars, besides guerillas. It was rumored at the capital by messengers from Puebla on the 27th, that Generals Paredes, Bustamente, and other influential persons, were about to invite a foreign Prince to Mexloo, to settle the difficulties of the oountry.

Tjik Arrivals from Sea.?-The spell of light easterly winds which prevailed during the past week, assisted a large number of European vessels into port. Yesterday we had elevon ships from Europe, besides some from other parts of the world. Many of these have made exceedingly good passages. The favoriRe packet ship Margaret Evans, Capt. Tinker, frown London, arrived on Wednesday, in a pusaape of 26 days The Ashburton, ilowiana, irom Liverpool, saiiea on the 24th, also arrived on Wednesday.

The Bishop opera troupe gave their first performance at the Park Theatre last evening, and were reoelved in a manner which showed at onee the favor with whioh the audience were disposed to greet the enterprise, and the artists on their part gave ample evidence that they would fulfil the promise;) and fully answer the expectations of their numerous friends. The charming opera of " Norma" always a favorite here, was last night rendered in a stylewhioh constitute it a musical treat Indeed. The prima donna was in excellent voice, and her singing was marked by that fauUlrcsness of execution for which she is so remarkable, and her itctliiff was of the energetic and Durelv dramatic atyle which the role of Norma requires to make it fully effective. In a word, Madame Bishop's efforts were perfectly successful. Mile. Korsi^sky, as Adalgitha, was suooeaaful aa a debutant. She evidently felt some embarrassment, but the kind enoouragement which she met from her listeners, had the effect to dispel, in a great measure her timidity, and she accomplished her task In a manner whioh gives her friends every reason to believe tbat she will excel la the profession whioh she has chosen. Signor Valtellina, the prime basao of the troupe was, as he always is, excellent in the part, (Oroneso) which was assigned to him. This was his first appearance at the Park, but he wis by no means before au audience of strangers; he was hailtil upon his first appearance >n a manner tbat betokened a friendly recognition He was good from first to last, his full rich voice completely filled tbe houee, and wan a noble accompanimett to the fine soprano of the prima donna Mr Reeves the new tenore, made a mist favorable impression; his is clear and expreaeive, and wliea accompanied by bv his good acting, gives life and soul to the whole part He is fortunate In tbe possession of a fine personal ap paaranoe, agreeable countenance and dresses in good taste. Although not so familiar with the Italian language aa la desirable in a singer in tbe Italian Opeaa, yet he aoqultttd himself well aud received great applause Tbe clioruaera are good and the orcht-stre fully equal to tbe pertormanae of their duty The management of the Park, deserves credit for the manner in which tbay have seoond- d the efforts of the Opera troupe l>y putting the pieces handsomely upon tbe stage To uight we are to be entertained with " La Sonambuls," (the American veraloo,) in which Madame Biabop, Sig Valtellina, Mr opera, the faro* of "Simpson & Co." will be performed. Bowkrt THr?t?r.-The Bedouin Arabs will repeat their extraordinary performai.ces at the Bowery Thea atre, this evening, and astonish, as they have done, all Who behold them. The feats ol these ohildren of the desert are Indeed wonderful, and to be appreciated must be seen. The performances this evening will oommence with the" Siege of Monterey," which increases in favor | nightly. The Arabs will perform afterwards, and the amusements will conclude with the comedy of the " Spectre Bridegroom." Chatham Thiathi.?The new domestic drama, the ' Mill of Rylard," bids fair to become popular at the Chatham theatre; as much, if not more so, than any piece that has been produced there in a loDg time. It appears te affect the sympathies ef the audienoe to as great an extent as the author Intended, and we are sure 1 that that individual would be iejoioed to see the way in ! which it is reoelved. It will be repeated this evening, and after the curtain falls on it, the laughable (arc* oi the ''Lady and the Devil," will be performed. Circu?? Bowkrt Ammiitheatre ?-The performances to-night are varied and interesting. They consist of I equestrianism, in a variety of entertainments, such as ' brilliant oavaloades, " Don Qulxotte." *' Sprite of the Silver Shower," scenes in she ring, pantomime, dancing i bo. Enough amusement for one night, say we, and I doubtless all thoae who go there this evening will agree with ui.
