I write now, froni4indtoatloi>? about the headquarter* of the army, Mat at no dictant period a tr&in *rd fmfflctant woort will with hnfc littU nntlM in tbtt public, bs despatched from Vara Cru*. Presuming that til Items cf funaril interest mad* public throughout the oiBp. will from time to Man reach you through lb# eolumas of til* New Orleans Delia and Picayune, both of wblah have Indefatigable correspondents with the army, I shall conflue myself to introducing you and your reader* to a few ocourrences that have transpired behind the scenes, and whlob are Intimately connected with the present and future progress of this war While at Jalapa, I announced to yo? the fact, that an estrangement, a* well a* iomi pretty sharp correspondence, had taken plaoe between Gen. Scott and Mr Negotiator Triat.arising from a bo lea* singular than un?;eutlemanly eour?e pursued by the latter towards the ormer. That difilculty, I am happy to say, has long slnoe ceased to exist, and Mr. Trist now regards Oen Soott as the General-in-Chief of the army of the United States, and in that oapaolty from time to time consults blm In all diplomatic matters oonneoted with the object of bis mission?peace I speak advisedly when 1 assure you. that Mr. Trist's bearing towards Oen Soott wh?n he first reaohed Jalapa,was not approved at Washington either by the President or Secretary of War. And Major General Pillow, who agrived here on the 0th of last month, was invested not only with '.lie power of making peaoe between these two high functionaries, but bore directions to Mr. Trist, that In the future progress of his negotiations he most, from time to time, oonsult with Miyors Gsneral Ssott and Pillow. 1 observe, from the papers, that an idea is prevalent among the mere intelligent portions of the Unitsd States, that Gen. Scott is vested with hijh diplomatic powers Whs* ever may have been the case, previous to the ar rival of Mr Tr'at. since th?n, all such power* hare been vested In Mr. Trlst alone. He waa sent here as (be confidential political Irland of the Administration, as the dlsburser of the three million bribery fond, and with th? zprctatian that by a jadieious application of it, a peace could be speedily purchased from] a p(tuple over whom onr standard had floated victorious In every engagement we had had with tbem. I mention thia, beoause I believe that the administration, fearing the infamy that will attach to a peace procured upon such terms, have cunningly devised the plan to create, and allow the Impression to become prevalent, that Oen. fleott possessed the diplomatic power, and that upon him must rest the responsibility of any such termination of the war A short time since things were in a fair way thus to be ended. The application of this fund,waa to have been, upon oertain oontingenoes, in bringing about the appointment of commiMionera te treat with us for peaoe; and those who had secured this retuit were to have been the recipients of certain portions of the fund. To this, Mr Trlst waa oommltted in full, and so far as content went, Gen Soott In part. A council of war was decided upon, and called, it oonvenad at the headqnartes of the army, on Saturday evening, the 17th of July last past. Those who wera present at this council, were, the General-in-Chief, Msjor Generals Pillow and Quitman, Brigadier Generals Twiggs, Shields and Cadwalader. The justly distinguished Gen Worth waa not present, in consequence of a moat unfortunate disruption of the friendly relation! that bad existed for thlrty-flve years between him and Gen. Soott. But of thia, more anon. At thU council of war, two propoeitloas were presented for the aotion of Ita member?. The first was, whether the advance of the army upon the eity of Mexioo should be delayed until the arrival of General Meroe's oommand, who waa then known to have left Vara Crna for this plaoe. And the seeond was, whether the application of a portion of the three millions In the manner above specified by me, would be justifiable under the peculiar oiroomstanoes of the case The first proposition waa, without much discussion, unanimously decided in the afllrmatlve. all concurring in opinion that it was the part of both prudence and discretion to await the relnfereement of General Plerje's column The second proposition presented in its oonaideratioo an entirety uiunrxui spectacle. aii evidently WW* Mnslbly impressed with the importance of th* contemplated step. and the idea of a great and victorious nation attempting to bribe the leader* of a government over whom they had triumphed, to make a peace upon alaoat any term*, was, for the first time in a eonfliot between oiriliied nations, about to be resorted to. The Ueneral-in-Chlef, witii his usual bland, Impressive, and, I may add, eleqaent manner, first want oyer the whole ground, bringing in support of his position every argument to which tast. much refiaeilou, and a strong mind oould give birth. To thsae considerations, be added the great and pressing anxiety urgsd In all their communication* by the Administration to terminate by any mean*, if possible, thii war. Upon hi* concluding, the opinions of the different Oenerals present were called for according to rank. Oen Pillow's waa the first given, and wm favorai le to the plan proposed, li-n Quitman foUowed, but objected in i#'o to it, upon the ground that it would intllo<'. a staiu upon out national escutcheon, that atnturies could net wipe out Of the brigidier generals, Twiggs was the first to npress hi* views and by regarding it to a great extant a* ? "political question," he declined giving any opinion. Oen. Shields was next 1 squired to give his views : be at oiioe rose from hi* seat, hi* whele countenance lit up with ftnlmati?n, and in that bold, fearless. uncompromising manner that so strikingly illustrates hi* whole public earner, denounced the whole scbetoe in th? moat unqualified term*, ile Insisted that the application of this fond ftn any such purpose, was not only Immoral, but debasing That, whil? for purpose* of self- efenoe it was, according to tbe usages or modern w?rf*r?. justifiable in on* nation to employ a* (pits, tli? subjects of the other belligerent power, jet there was no etat? of clroumstances tbat ertr had,or could exlst.that would warrant our bribing or hiring the offloera or functionaries of that belligerent power, for the sake of benefitting ua, to cat the throat* of their own subject*. And he boldly declared, that rather than see the oonntry ot bin adoption thus disgraced, be would prefer by far to witnnss a continuation of tbe war for tun years, and Id every battle we fought, lose fire thousand men. The on* would admit cf a remedy ; the other was an ?ril from tbe consequence* of which, as a nation, we never could recover. Urn CadwaladerJ simply remarked, that Oen. Shields had exhausted the subject, and he fully oonourred with him ia the conclusions to which h* had come Thus terminated the council of the evening of th* 17th af July. What followed, Is soon related. The next day, Oen. shields bad a long Interview with Mr TrUt. What occurred at that interview, 1 have no means of ascertaining, but the subseqaent acta of Mr Trlstoan leave bat little doubt upon that subject. Two days afterwards Mr. Trlst withdrew all paper* connected with this manner of terminating the war. And from that hour to this, an immediate march upon tbe oapltal *o soon as Oen Piero* oam* up, was determined upon, and M hopes of an early peao* abandoned. I have been thus particular in relating the proceedings of what I regard by tar the most Important oouncll of war that baa convened sinoe th* existenoe of hostilities between th* United State* and Mexieo, because 1 believe my ceuntry has been saved from being plunged into an aby** of infamy, from which there would be ?o extrication ; and for the reason, that those who, regardless of oousrqnenoes to themselves, have averted that blew, should receive the credit of it. For myself, I sincerely hope that the hand that ever shall he extended In offering as a bribe, either directly or Indirectly, any portion of this three millions to Santa Anna or any other Mexloan, for the purpose of proouring a peace, may.befor* It accomplishes it* object, fall palsied by bis side; a id that a mark mora dirtinguisdable than that placed upon tbe brow of Cain, may be indelibly fixed upon his, that so long as hi* unworthy life Is spared, he may be th* object of execration of all hi* Indignant | countrymen Th* city cf Mexico must be taken; a government ! must be organised by th* commander-in-chief of our armies; laws based upon republican principle* will hav* tft be enaoted and anforoed; th* whole .avenues of the country oollecUd and applied for th* inalnUnano* of tbi* new government; and oar armies will hav* to r?asaln in the country and sustain and protect 'hat new government until every portion of this imbecile nation hail be mad* to ftel and acknowledge It* iiopotency. and from a aonieiotuneM of It* own waaknei*, ?vn the benefit* that are to be darlTad Tram again nctabllehlDg amioabla relation* upon a permtuint biKla. between them and na.
