[From the North Auisrican. (Mexico.) Oct 30 ] On Sunday evening last, (Oct 17th.) about 7 o'clock, dastardly attempt wu made by a Mexican, opposite the Cafe Oran Sociedad. to take away the life of an unfortunate woman with a knife. The woman ran to Lieut. Mayna Held, who happened to be paining at the time, for proteotlon. This offloer, drawing bis a word, brought the assassin a smart out over the haad, and disarming him of hii knife, tent him prisoner to the palaoe gnard room. We hope the scoundrel will meet with his deserts. A Mexican officer's reasons for opposing peaoe were recently given in a publlo house in thU city thus "The Mexican army is now dlsgTaoad If peaoe is made, the Yankees will take a portion of the territory. I would rather thev would take it all. aire us a uuiet government and put an end to the interminable civil warn that ?wm to be our destiny." The closing of the llquerles at fl P. M.. as"ordered by the governor, haa already had an admirable effect. The order waa abaoiutely necessary to prevent the assaslnatlonofour troopi?a matter, bye-the-bye, that is Retting to be entirely too frequent. No Mexican, however inclined, will attempt the life of an American soldler when sober Those who are iond of a game ef ten-pina, a glass of good KnglUh ale. or a comfortable sapper, can be pleased at I'aoli'a beautiful varden. We know no more pleasant ^laee of passing a Sunday afternoon. Mrs Harah Koyle haa opened a reetauiant nest door to the National Theatre, where all her old friends will Ood everything that the moat faatidlous can desire. The race on Sunday resulted In favor of the Spanish nag. We ar? told that considerable money changwd hands. A hatter named Smith advertises " the finest hats." How odd it looks to see Mexican and American soldiers mingling in the street, eaoh observing every courtesy towards the other It is strange how quiokiy the people have forgotten their former queer notions In regard to the barbarians of the North. The air of the valley is so light that strangen all feel a great depression in the region of the lunga. men and animals r ot being able to perform the same amount of active labor they could in the United States and Kuropn In the item of drinking spirituous liquors, It is calculated that tbe deleterious effects of their use are four told greater here than In the north. We shall have to establish tee-total societies, in self-defence. We have snipe and other birds In abundance. Of fish there is very little in the market?ull the fresh ones being breught irom Toluca. A cricket match will be played on Sunday next, 'J4th Octooer, on the ground of the Union Club, at Mrs Wllie's Rmcfio dt Napolet, about half a mile from Tuoabaya The wickets will be pitohed at 8, A M Lovers of tbe game will be able to amuse themselves, and enjoy a good breakfast, by being early on the ground. The National Theatre, formerly the grand " Tealro dr. Santa Jinnopened for the first representation of the K.ngllsh drama, in tbe city of Mexloo, oa tbe 'iOth SeDtember. when the manazer. W. R Hart, nreseiited "The Lad; of Lyons," a dance by Miss K Cbrlotlao, an an interlace, and the farce of " The Loan of a Lover." Claud* Melnotte was performed by Mr. K. Fitzgerald, Pauline by MIm Christian. The other part* were taken by Messrs. Hart, William*, Balk, Towosend, James, Morton and Kitsgerald, and Mesds. Morris and Williams. Prices of admittance, $1 and 60 oents. INCIDENTS CONNECTED WITH THE SOUTH CAROLINA MQI MINT. [Cor. of the Columbia (8 C ) Hearld ] Mexico. Oct '24?On leaving Vera Cruz, Col Butler placed Sergeant Brooks in oommand of four of our regiment and four dragoons, who were ordered to be ready at any time to perform any servlco he might require The regiment happening to be the rear guard, the Colonel threw us about two huadred yards in rear of the regiment, and ordered Brooks to look out for Lanoers, who were very frequently seen watohlng for an opportunity to pounoe upon us. We were making merry over a gourd Pulque Polka, when about 30 or 40 Lanoers came charging up the road aejf the old gentleman himself was after them. They suooeded in lancing one of our dragoons, but being oon'ented with their success, and probably not fancying the music ot our muskets, they about feoed, ?nd retreated about sixty { yards, and formed line for another obarge ; but bearing the shouts of the regiment that was coming down the road to the tune of double quick time, they put spurs to vumr IHVIH puuics Iiuu Du?ui|^iru uu m uo?utuui umorder. The Colonel wnh riding a considerable distance in a<ltance of the regiment wh n the firing commenced. I will never forget the proud look of the gallant old fellow whan be galloped in front and took oommand of the regiment He formed the hollow aquara and waited for lbs leaner*, but they ry wiaely kept their dlatanee. I'he day before the storming of Chapultepeo, General Quitman took a party to examine the fort between ihe oaatle and eity. After making the neo<-tary dlflfeovery, I and the Mexloans saw him returning, they Imagining he bad attempted to take the fort and waa repulsed, raised a tremendona shout. The Americana, in making a charge, Invariably ahout aa loud an they can. Although our regiment charged upon the castle of Chapultepeo In plain view of the enemy, through a meadow, and had several ditches to crosa, which aume leaped, the majority being compelled, through fatigue, to jump In and get out the beat way they could, few comparatively were killed. Sergeant Madiaon waa killed in the charge upon the caatie: he waa shot through the neck by a grape (hot, which killed him tDatantly A braver man never fell In battle. He and the eon of Dr. Trezevant, of Columbia, were buried. Trezevant was ahot through the heart. The officers of our Company exhibited great coolness and bravery in the several battloa In which they were engagad. Gen. Shields called for two oompanies to volunteer to cross the road and go down a dlteh (meaning alongside the ditch,) to pick the men from their cannon. Captain Marshall Immediately volanteered hia company, and ano'.ber waa detailed Capt M. was in commaud. It waa some time before the two companies could cross the ditch, and the attention of the Mexicans being directed to that point, musket balls became very numerous, one of which took a fancy to our Captain : it being a spent ball it only made him slok, which soon passed away We advanced aa near the enemy aa we could, a body of water preventing ua from reaohlng them. On (Jen. Shields being informed of this, we wera ordered to join the Regiment. Lieut Moragne waa killed within the gatea ?f the city. 1 wai standing within a few feet of him when he waa shot He threw hia haada to hia breast, and cried out "O, Lord, I'm ahot " I sprang to his side to assist him, but his eyes wera set in death, and he Immediately ceased to breatbe. Mis neau was ?not uu vnr n# wu lined Limit. Selleck aoted vtry bravely, and Is, I am told, favcrably mentioned in <?en Quitman's report He was wounded at the Garita de Belen and carried off the field. Four of our company were killed, and SHveial wounded After our division had passed over the breast works at the gate of the oity, and aft*r holding the position for a considerable time, ('apt Drum, of the Artillery (bavlug one piece,) reported to (Jen. Quitman that the matches had given out, and as we had crossed the breast-works for the purpose of protecting the cannon, the General ordered us to retire within the fortifications. It was at this time the enemy gave us a tremendous fire of grape and canister, killing som* of the bravest men in the army, arar ng whom were I.apt Drum and his brave Orderly Sergeant,to whom it is said the honor is dun of having been the first to mount the walls of " the Black Kort" at Monterey Vive of the Kdgefield Company Ml together at this time, among whom was 1st Sergeant Blocker, who was th-n In command of the company ? ? ? (Jen Quitman moved about In the thickest of the fight, as if he wai proef against shot and shell He seeuied to look upon the enemy's fire with the most utter contempt, yet lie had the most tender ragard for the lives of his oidlors. He was alwayv at the head of hls'command. It was amuaing to ^obseive the fellows making awful ugly faces, and scratching their Ufa when a spent ball would hit them Fur several days after the flfeht it was really amusing to hear Major K. speak of what ha had seen and heard and witnessed, and ocoa ionnlly of ?i me wonderful deeds h? and bin musket bad performed But if there Is anything that can make a man oplit hi* sides, it ia analog the major go through the motion* of loading hi* rnuaket and lotting bar off at Maslctna. Wben h? gat* hia place loaded, ha throws the hollow of hia right foot about lour Inahe* in roar of bl* left baai ; then raising bla musket, making an angle of thirty degrees with the horlion, baring h>? laft band opposite hia left eye, and lowering tha muzile until the flight cou>?? i#n a llna wuh hia right eye, than shaking bimtelf a little to it hia feat are wide enough apart, and bla Jy properly balanced be turoa in tb? toes of his left foot tbrowa bimaalf back, and remains in that position ab iut half a minute ; not that it takea him an long to sathfy blmsuif that bla aim iaoorrect, but that he may give aoma battalion an opportunity of bidding tbair friends good bye before embarking for the shores of an unknown world. * * * ff it hadn't been for the Major'* peculiar manner of " letting her off, ' he would have bad hi* scalp taken off certain The old soldi* r wan aiming, with hia head thrown back ou hia abouldars, when a ball entered hi* cap, and if he bad been standlnfi atralght, he would have been minus soma hair, If not some skull. anotiikr sp.tNisn vikw ok rat; mkxican war.

SILVERY IN CALIFORNIA. By the klndneaa of a gentleman who crossed the plains with Commodore Stockton, we are placed in possession of letters and papera from California The Californian, of the .'nth of June, contains a strong article against the introduction of slavery into that territory. The editor sitya the population are one hundred to one against It, and the warmest advocate*, after a residence of one year, beoome the strongest opponents to slave labor, lie counsels the

emigrants egalnst bringing their slaves, and states that several who have done ao have been gild to get clear of them on any terms. The strongest reason he urges against the Introduction of blaoks, is the following " In California, we have an Immense population of Indians, who were born on the soli, and have neither the disposition or means of living any where else, and they are willing and capable of being good servants and laborers ?they can work much cheaper than an American colored man, aad can live at one-fonrth the expense " The editor is equally as strong an opponent of the free blaoks, and he nrires the necessity of laws preventing their emigration to the country After stating a number of reasons against their settling in the territory, he says " We have ten other good reasons, which we shall give hereafter, but we shall certainly use all the inOueuoe we may have to procure the passage of suoh laws as will I.I. ..I -U'S. ^ RE 1 tNING, DECEMBER 13, 1 result* of experiments may be briefly Hummed op as follow! ? 1st. The eiplenire cotton, well prepared, according to Sobonbein's formula, baron at a beat of abaut 3H0" Fahrenheit anil it will, therefore, not set fire to gunpowder By other modes of preparation, it may be mad* to explode at a much lower temperature ; peat precaution Simula. tberetore. be until in drying it. -'i Tbe projectile force of explosive ootton, in moderate charges, in tbe musket or In tbe cannon, Is nearly equal to that of twioa its weight of tbe beet gunpowder. 3d When compressed by hard ramming, (as in filling a fuse) it burn* slowly; and after a short tima it produces little or no flame. 4th. By the absorption of moisture, its force appears to be rapidly diminished, but is probsbly quite restored by drying A sample of cotton, of whioh sixty grains gare to a musket ball a mean Initial vcloolty of l,6a8 feat, was exposed for two weeks in a oool damp vault, where it absorbed about two per oent. of moisture, 60 grains of the ootton in that state gave a mean velooity oi 1.01? leet 6th. Its explosive force, or bursting sffeot l?, tn a high degree, gieater than that of gunpowder. In this respect the nature of gun cotton assimilates much more to that of the fulminate* than to gunpowder. It it, therefore, well adapted to mining purpoees. (ith Oun-ootton, when well prepared, leaves no peroeptlble stain when a small i|uantlty 1* burnt on white paper. The principal residua of its combustion are wuter and nitrous acid. The acid is made sensible by ita odor, and IU effect ot> the barrel of n gun, which will soon be corroded by It, if not washed after tiring 7th. In oonse<|U?nce of the quicklime and Intensity of action of the gun cotton when Ignited, it cannot be used with safety in our present flre-ariua. It appears by the experiments that an aooident of service, such as that of inserting two charges into a musket before tiring, (which is of fre<iaeut occurrence.) would oause the barrel tc burst; and from the repeated bursting of pksCols aucJ other small arms with smsll charges, there la no doubt that the barrels of our small-arms would bo destroyed bj a f?w rounds even with lervioe charge*. The disoorsry of gun-cotton baring given a new sti mulousto the invention of substitutes for gunpowder.se rersl of these compounds have been offered to notioi during the past year, and some of them have been tried at this Arsenal; but, as their composition has not been made known, it Is deemed unnecessary to take any notice In thin report of the results of the trials, lurthei than to say that they have been altogether unfavorable, as to the utility of the proposed invention* for military purpose*.
