Tha sub'Unce of it I oimmunicated from Tacubaya. soon after the. battles, in a private letter to a friend in Pittsburg. The statement* in tha letter are known by very many officers of this army to be true, and 1 nan but think tha' the publication of truth is less likely to do violence to individual or tha tervloa, than the suppretsion ot perversion of it. 7 Justice to Gen.

Pillow WU arre*t?d. and next < Sen Worth. The A'orth JimlTU oi Is of opinion that Gen Pillow was not arrested on account of the '' Leonidaa" letter, but on the following grounds : ? There has been another arrest, that of Gen Pillow, ose of the chiefs aforenamed, but Dot, as appears, on account of the letters of whioh be is the hero We bear generally that the cause was this:-Gen. Pillow having taken exceptions to the finding of a court of inquiry, which finding has been approved by Gen Koott, addressed a paper relating to it to the Secretary of War, through tha commander-in-chief. preserving a copy, which be avowed, in a letter accompanying, he bad sent, or would send, directly to the secretary at Washington This transaction is judged to be a contempt, auu for the so judged contempt (Jen. Pillow is arretted. Not understanding tbo technicalities of the case, wt< are not advised whether psrt of or the whole transaction is regarded as the contempt; but that is immaterial. Gen. Worth's arrest,1s thus noticed in the Norrh American of the 26ch alt :? The last arrest oocurred yesterday, that of Brevet Major (Jen. Worth, and the charge is, we believe, contempt towardt the commander-in chief Without a full knowledge of tne facts, we do not purpose to lengthen this article by any remarks upon this proceeding We shall have more to say on this grave subject another day. COKKKSl'O.NDENCE BETWEEN OKN. SCOTT AND THE AKCH'BISHOP OK MEXICO. The correspondence between Gen Scott and the Archbishop of Mexico, on the subject of the relexse of the Mexican prisoners, is very interesting. The latter a-iKs the favor of their liberation on the ground that their families are suffering in consequence of their confinement. He says the auction and respect which Oen. Seott has always shown to the holy church, of which he is the head iu this city, emboldens him to make this request, and instauoes the liberation of the French prisoners by Abdel Kader, through the mediation of the Archbishop of Argel. The (ianeral replied at some length, citing the cases of the prisoners taken at Vera Cruz and Cerro Gordo who *ere liberated on their parole, and had afterwards taken up arms against the Americans; that while at ruehla be asked the liberation if the American prisoners taken on the JAo Grande, who were to have been exchanged by art agreement between Santa Anna and Gen. Taylor, but that an evasive reply having been returned, another communication was sent on the Sflth of July, the only response to which was found in the palaoe arter uen. soon Jia<i entered tne city, folded, st ai?u ami directed to bitn under date of August. (?en Soottooneludes by saying that If the archbishop will have the goodness to appoint sotne dignitary of the church to visit these men. and explain to them that prisoner* of war under their parole, are always shot if found fighting against the saoie belligerent before being duly exchanged; abd that if this dignitary gives also a solemn admonition of the church bgtinst the violation <f their oaths, be will give them their liberty under bis sacred authority The archbishop, in a subsequent persoual Interview with the nomoiander-ln chief, cited to Liin the decree of toe Mexican government, which prohibited nil Mexicans from giving their paroles not to tight against the Amerioans, and the responsibility he would incur if the supreme government should disapprove the step, at.d thus ihe matter stands at present. REVOLUTION AT OAJACA. There has been a successful revolution at Oxjaca The object of it was to put down the present Stute government, and reinstate the one put out in February last After six or seven hours' fighting, the authorities yielded to the insurgents, surrendered the government into their hands, abd tranquillity was restored.

There has been an nnfute of a serious nature In Guanajuato lu the village of Silao, on the 7th, the troops of Governor Arrellano arrested two priests, who were endeavoring to get up a pronunciemento in favor ol placing Genetal Bustamente at the bead of the ai.ny, of continuing Uie war until the Invad ts were exterminated,and of declaring any man a traitor who should entertain any proposition of peaoe with the United States. The people resisted the arrest and a fl^ht ensued wbicb resulted in six of the citizens being killed and fifteen or sixteen wounded. The soldiers finally succeeded in biinging the ptlests, tied, into Guanajuato. The peo pl? were In a great state of eicitement, and ories ol " death to the governor," were heard on a 1 sides.
