General Trait. 6, 1847. Dear General: Slnoe the date of the Colonel's letter, the Mexicans have been in treaty with us until to-day. The rascals have deceived General Scott and all banda; the General haa terminated the armiatioe, and in a few hours we are to hare another battle. To all appearances it will be a terrible one, and many a brave man must fall before the oity of Mexico open* it* gates. The probability is, we shall have to storm the oity. We ought to have marched into it the day of our last great battle; It could easily have been taken then. Santa Anna ia outside of the gates, with from 10 to 15,000 men ?ready. I suppose, to fall upon our rear But let him take care and nol come too near, for the 0th Regiment are bound to have his other leg, and all of bis upper works. I have commenced ray letter in a very common-plaoe manner, dispensing with the affectionate greetings which lay near to my heart You must anticipate the ten thousand kind words and good wishes of an old friend, who, in the midst of many trying scenes, has ofren to shut his bosom against the thoughts whioh weuld melt it Into tears. Webb behaved noblv, in the critical battle* we had with the enemy?00 did Stoddard, Johnson and Hat heway. Poor Woodbouse was taken sick the day before we left?so very nick the surgeon would not allow him to go with us. in any way. We left him in tear* at parting Webb ha* been siok for several weeks, but turned out for the flght. Ilia name and the names of several others were unfortunately left out of the official report, but will be noticed in a letter which (Jen i'leroe Intends writing. You see I have no r om to send a word of affeetlonatu remembrances to the friend* in Hartford, who I would name on caper. To all of them give my true love. To my dear friends. Mr ltedQeld's family, my most affectionate remembrances?to my dear friend Hubbard, and my sweet oeuslna, and to your good lady and all your family, the same affectionate regard. I intended to have mentioned that young Luther Pratt fought like a hero, and fell, but not dangerously wounded. In the last engagement.

I have letters tor many, but I can't send them yet?I have only a chance to send two letters. 1 remain, dear (ieneral. Most truly and affectionately, Vour sincere friend, THOMAS H. SEYMOUR. I Si:rT. 13th, 1847. Dear General,?I open thin letter with a heart overwhelming with sorrow. We have jast stormed and carried the terrible battle of Chapuitepee, but wi to relate, our mutual friend Col. Ransom fell at the bead of the storming party mortally wounded, by a shot which struck him between the eyes. He was standing up In full sight ot the enemy? erect an a cedar of Lebanon, a splendid target for the foe, when the shot struck him It was a dreadful sight to me to see him stretched out before me dead?and I in a moment, in the midst of the most terrible battle of the war, suddenly placed in command of a regiment. The body of our dear friend, over whose affectionate lines to you, I am making a record of his glorious fall, has been placed In a leaden coffin, and will he taken with the regiment wherever it goes My hope and desire is that we may have an opportunity to return by next April. Truly, your friend and obedient servant. T. H. SEYMOUR. September 37th. P. S.?1 have just got a chance to send this to you aod one letter home. By the kindness of the British consul. I can send this to Havana, and I hope from thence it will go safe to Hartford We had to Inter the remains of the Colonel. I addressed a note to the British consul, and obtained permission to plaoe his body in the British burying ground, where it would be safe from the hands of ruthless Mexl cans. I commanded the escort at the funeral Generain Worth, Tleroe, and a large number of ofllotrs were present. AFFAIRS WITH ?KN. WOOL'S ARMY. (Krom the N. O. Picayune, Oct. 19 ) The U. 8 steamer Telegraph, Capt. Wilson, arrived on Sunday from the Brazos, having sailed on the 1 -Jth inst. Col. Hays was then at the Brssos with one oompany of his battalion. He expected to leave for Vera Cruz in a day or two In the James L Day. From Matamoras the only news of interest is the severity with which the yellow fever is prevailing there We have by this arrival a verbal confirmation of the news that Gen Taylor will establish his headquarters at Matamoras by the lath of November We have reoeived the following Utters from oar correspondent at Gen. Wool's headquarters: ? Vi?T*,Sept. 24, 1847. When 1 last wrote you we were in an agony of suspense to hear from Mexloo, expecting every hour news that "grim visaged war hath smoothed his wrinkled front," but on Wednesday night " a change name o'er the spirit of our dream," wrought by late news from the olty of Mexico via Parr as It was to the ell?ct that the armistloe bad been broken off and hostilities resumed ; that Oen Soott had attaoked Santa Anna in position outside the city on the 8th, Oth and 10th of Soptember, with stivers loss on both sides, and fallen back a short distanoe for supplies and amunitlon. The loss on the side of the Mexloans was stated at fifteen hundred, and ours they could not estimate, but it was suctioned to be verv heav v. a? our troops went said to have fought upon an open plain, while the Mexican** were behind breastworks When < the news was received at rarras on the 'JOth, som* of I the Inhabitants, considering that (Jen Scott had been I repulied, Indulged In a regular jolllQcatlon, aud ut I'atos i they rang thslr church belle till all was blue again. On the strength of the new* the caniillr. of Parra* excited | by the fume* of bad brandy and the thought* of a Mexican viotory, and Incited by the eiuisaries of Ki Senor Ookernador Aguirre, repaired to the house of Mr Lano, an American merchant of that place, assaulted it and also stoned Dr. MoManus, a resident there, and committed i other outrages for which they ought to " sulT-r some " ri'his news, as you may w?ll suppose, caused great excitement here, but them were many who would not believe it On Thursday afternoon, the g.ld. two gentlemen arrived from Man I.uis I'otosi, confltinlng the report of the termination of the armistice and the resumption of hos- i tilities. They also brought a pamphlet, published in the city of Mexico, oontaining all the proceedings relative to the armistice aud negotiation, with the propositions on our side and upon the part of the Mexicans, and i also the letter of Oen. Scott, dated the 6th of August, i Informing Sauta Anna that unless hn received apolrgy ] and satisfactory reparation for the violation of three articles of the armistice on the part of the Mexlo&as,before 12 o'clock the next day, he should consider the armistice at an end. Santa Anna's rtply, under date of the i 7th. was also given and was <{uite as clever a document ' as any he ever penned-It was Santa Anna all over. ] These documents Kendall has probably sent yon We are all Ailed with speculations here as to what is to be done with this column, but the general Impression is that whsther Oenersl Scott is successful in taking the city or not, this line will be abandoned to Matamoras, and a garrison maintained there, at Kort Brown, the mouth of the Hlo Orande, and at Brasos Santiago, and the residue of the troops despatched round to Vera Crus. They might be much better employed there | than here-there they tan be of service, here of none whatever. No one supposes for one single instant that J the Mexican army, or any portion of It will advanoe In this direction; and if thsy do they have nothing to gain. I As we lay no claim to any part of the country this slds of the Rio Grand*, why should six thousand good | W YO YORK. THURSDAY MO troop* be kept here in uilnn?r?. to malntaln'what we Jo | not want ?

It was a bright moonlight night, and we had a fine gal lop of it, if nothing more.

[From the London Times, Sept 30 ] It bad bono Anticipated that the aooounts from the United States and the neat of war in Mexico, which have just reached us by the Caledonia steamer, would put an end to the long period of suspense and perilous Inactivity in which General Scott's army has passed several weeks, and would probably annouaoe either the entry of that General into the Mexican capital, or the discomtlture of hia scanty foroes. The intelligence, whloh will be found in another column, hmrt much ot?re rn'mblanct to the latter than la thi fortntr of thrie alttrnativti. ???? In fact, having arrived under the walls of Mexico by dint of extraordinary perseverance and bard fighting. It Is by no means clear thac General Scott is nearer the grand object of bis gallant efforts than when he started from Vera Cruz: whilst, on the other hand, it is evident tn the merest tyro in military affairs, that an army of 6.000 men, at such a distanoe from Its base, and so inadequately supported from home, is in reality, In a poeltlon of great p?ril Conferences for the negotiation of | peace have, It U said, been opened, the alternative being another battle ol a still more perilous charaoter than the last; for ttmust be observed, that In General Scott's Rivv.iw jiwoimvu tun ivirnt iDfDinr uiuni un UUIUimilUU e huB absolutely no retreat. We should, therefore, not be surprised to learn that be In willing to conolude a peace on term* by no means flattering to the vanity of the United Stated. lint the moment we arrive at thin point we are met by various political considerations, peculiar to the institutions ot th? United State*, which render the Holutlon of th? question extremely complicated. Mr. l'olk undertook tint war on Ait own account, and it hai proved to 1 he the principal affair of Mi Presidency. The attractions ot military adventure and th* pride of military success have induced the people of the United States to endorse his bill* and to recruit his armies: and we have accordingly seen the Chief Magistrate of what wa> once the model of pacific government!, indulging himself in the royal liu ury oj a bloody war. AU this may be of some temporary advantage to Mr. l'olk and his adherents; but they must be well aware that advantages ho dearly bought by the nation will prove fatal to those who have speculated in them unless the burdens of the war can be terminated with this oampalgn, and unless this campaign oan be closed with an amount of suocess sufficient to screen the enorm>u> injustice of the invasion. In the jiieient state of public opinion in the world, we should have thought it extraordinary if the most absolute of F.urop'an sovereigns had dared to embark in luch a | war; but that a man, temporarily invested with a ilmj Ited power like that of the President of the United States, should, by his own will and pleasure, have I plunged his country into such a series of embarrassments, is, witboat exoeption, the most extraordinary ev-nt which has mwr ooeurred in tho history of any modern republic. Tho sequel will show whother the mere of military anhlevenunta Is snfllntont to overthrow all the principled on which the constitution of the United States ia professed to be founded; and even in this nfTnir of the armlstloe and the alleged negotiation for peace, we ahall be curious to learn how far < General Scott's conduct will be approved and supported by his Government, which no doubt anticipated a more brilliant result from the march to Mexloo.
