[rairATK caaaairOMOBKca ] City of Mexico, Nov. 26, 1847. General Scott is in a peck of troubles with some of his Generals. He arrested the gallant and d i xt i nam ah?d H.il lliin/>nn n w^plf nr f t' n days since, for avowing the authorship of a certain letter which appeared at Pittsburgh and Washington, and in which he (Scott) was reflected on rather severely. Soon after, General Pillow was arrested for an alleged disrespect, and on Thursday General Worth was arrested for the same offence. Twiggs is the right hand man of the General now, and whether tliese arrests are the results of his jealousy and management, or whether there is something deeper in the matter, I am at a loss to imagine. Be this as it may, there is considerable excitement prevailing among the different partizans. Scott himsefi litis no great popularity with the rank and file, nor do I believe his friends, among the officers, very numerous. Worth and Pillow are decidedly more popular than Twiggs?Worth with the old army, and Pillow with the new. The partizanB of Twiggs gave him a splendid dinner the other day, in which, sentiment after sentiment were given to Ii'ib gallantry and good generalship. If Worth ana Pillow were not under arrest, their friends would follow suit, so the excitement would increase. A? T Hide with mine of the factions, it is to me rather a source of amusement than otherwise, and will continue to be as long as itdoes not iutertere with the discipline of the army. By the way, Colonel II. is involved in a difficulty, from which he may find it difficult to extricate himself; which, when added to his lawless and cruel whippings of soldiers and teumsters, may give him much trouble. About the time the train left, commanded by him, he took up a Frenchman and a Swiss, residents of this city, and without the form of a trial, subjected them to the lash severely. The society of Frenchmen here protested to the General-in-Chief, but failed to obtain justice, Col. H. being permitted to leave with the train; and seeing that there was no hope for justice here, they have published their wrongs to the world, and solicited that protection from their government which they are eutitled to, and which they will obtain. I enclose you the publication.* The news from the Mexican Congress is altogether unsatisfactory; the vote inoicates a predominance of the mongrel peace party; but there is the usual want of decision in their actions, and there is strong evidence that Santa Anna is at his old game of intrigue. He is said to be at Oajaca, though his myrmidons are at Queretaro, busy at work. * The publication baa not bean recti Tad; it is presumed it was not pre-paid, and consequently thrown out at New Orleans. A It MY INTELUGBNCX. The U. 8. steamer Telegraph will be despatched this morning at daybreak by Major D. 1).

We were partioularly pleased with the manner in whiob Mr Barry maintained the character of the Stranger. BelI 1 amy acted Solomon to admiration, and Burke was. in truth, a perfeot Peter Simple, in mind, words, and actions. Mrs. Phliltps sustained the obaracter of Mrs. Haller to ths satisfaction of all, and rounds of applause were frequently awarded her. Mr. Plutner sang with much better effect than on his first appearance, and waa heartily encored by the company. In the drama of the " Witch of Hell Gate " Mr. Marshall was a perfect Captain Kyd. and in that oharaoter oould sosroely be exoelled. As usual, the " Kiss in the Dark" was reccired with roars of laughter. Chatham Theatke.?There was rathsr a slim house well played m if there had been a houie full. The drama of" St. Clair of the Isles, er the Outlaws of Barra," wis played, la whloh Mr. Brandon sustained the character of Lord Roekelyn, and Mrs. Mo Lean that of Lady Roskelyu. The Model Artists, as usual, were reoelved with applause, and are decidedly the most beautiful ever exhibited In the olty, new groups being added almost every evening. Mr. Fletcher will introduce, In a short lime, a beautiful tableau, representing Venus, with her hands resting on the shoulders of Mars, and gaslng intently into his faoe, while her riyht foot rests upon a golden apple, presented te-her by 1'arls, as a prise for her beauty. The design was furnished Mr. F. by t, lady, taken from a seal, as follows : ? 'New York, Jan 8tb, 1847 Mr. J Fletcher?Sir :? Being a frequent attendant upon your theatre, and having witnessed your admirable " Model Artists,'' in their tcbleavx vivants, I take the liberty of enclosing to you an Impression of a seal, taken from a Mexican officer slain on the battle ground of 'Cerro Gordo," sent to me by my bother, a New York volunteer; wuioh you will please add to the representations of your magnificent illustrated pictures. Yours, respectfully, A .Sister or a Brave Volunteer." The Ethiopian Melodists are also vary entertaining In their negro extravagansas, while the performance of Mr. Turner, on the dulcimer, fills every one with wonder and admiration. Steyehmarkischs Musical Society.?Last evening, the Tabernacle presented a brilliant array ot the musical dillttanti, to bear the dulcet strains, thrilling harmony, and sublime scientific performances of this welldisciplined, oelebrated band. Their soft and melodious muslo would tame the wildest heart, and exoite cheerfulness within the most gloomy mind. Ma?y of their plaintive, inspiriting sirs mirror up to the imagination by-gone scenes of the moat pleasurable character. The poetic writer, in a few words, beautifully describes the impressive quality of this delightful accomplishment: " Music the soul, song charms the sense." As the human frame, in its grand construction, is based upon harmony, the mini being the sweet instrument wbioh by its aotion, tunes the nerves, and makes them play in unity a nd concord, or otherwise, aooording to the impression it reoeives? and that health or siokness may follow its action. We don't know a plaoe in this oity where more agreeable or pleasing sensations can be excited, and consequently healthful results follow, than by listening to the bewitching strains and soul-stirring me lody of the band nowtperformlng, three timee each week, at the Tabernacle. In faot, we cannot seleot any particular piece which these inimitable performers execute? all have]lheir charms. The "Talisman Waltier," by banner, was exoelient, and the introduction to " l'Elisir d'Ansere," by Donlsetti, was given with such a thrilling combination of swert sounds, quivering upon the ear so melodiously,and (lying awey in suob enchanting bar inony. that repeated cheers followed its per ormanee The" Klauga ausder Haimath," "Hounds from Home," was the most plaintive, beautiful pteoe we have ever heard.

The soft, awset, enphoneous music In this splendid oomposition should be heard by every lover of musio. There is every reason now to say that this unrivalled band will meet with thesuocess their talent deserves. Chuistt's Minstrels.?We need only say that Mechanics'.>1 all was last nig t as thronged as it has bsen any night tbess three months, ays four months Sest; it is really aatoniablng how the folks pour In to ear these ministrels.

In cousequeuoe of there being in the building at the time,a quantity of oil,and other inflammable articles, the flames spread with fearful rapidity. The entire stock of Gilford h Perry was destroyed, and their los 1 is supposed to be $1400, upon which there w u<> insurance. The flames communicated to N? >3, a three story frame home In front, occr 1 by Mr. Perry, and two other families, who wer ' led to remove the principal part of their furnitur the flames had advanoed too far. 1next ooi ted to No. 14, also a three story frame house, wl ocoupled by several poor families, all of whoi inmates of No. 13, were rendered houseless, and the coldest night of the winter, barely escaping their lives, and some ol them with not a sufficiency c clothing, which In their flight from the burning build iukb iurj ubu leu, tu pruMoi buviu iruiu mo pierumg cold.

The Are department of that city being very inefficient, having but two engines, who were unable to get a sufficiency of water, it 1s hard to tell what would have been the result, but for the exertions of the New York firemen.

At this inclement season of the year, when so many poor bewildered eml grants are in the greatest distress In a strange country, unacquainted with the customs, and unable to find work, it particularly behooves all charitable persona to aid them as far aa they oan. By patronising this oonoart, thsy will not only do a charity, but also spend a pleasant evening, as the entertainments will be of the highest order. Improtkmckts.?Agreeably to promise, we give below a description at some of the stately residenoea which are now in conrse of ereotton In the npper part of the eity. The first w? shall mention belongs to Mr Parish, and is situated at the corner of Broadway and Seventeenth street; it Is a magnificent edifice, fear stories high, with circular front, having two very large parlors on the first and second floors, with all the necessary bath-rooms, and other rooms, to make a faultless rssidencs. The walls are handsomely decorated over head, with beautiful centre pieces, and the oornioes are of the most chaste and beautiful order. Mr. Peteler is also just finishing a Bee four story house, at the oorner of Fourth avenue and Twentieth street, which is one of the largest private buildings in the upper part of the city, lie Is sparing no pains nor expense to make it one of the most desirable, finishing it In the most costly and faahtonable style. There are also a number of splendid bulldingsgoing un In Twenty-sixth street, near Lexington avenue, which are to be finished in a style not to he surpassed. Lamps Out.?At an early hour last night, nearly all the oil lamps In the city were out. In several of the streets, tbere was not a single burning light to be seen, and the Park was veiled in darkness. Isaat R. liowasd ? This Individual, long known as the president of the New York Commercial College, was convioted on Mosday, In the Coort of Sessions, for obtaining money by false pretences, from a young man who preferred the complaint against him. On the opening of the oourt yesterday, he was called for ssntsnee. He stated to the court the closely approaching death of his wlfls, and the condition of his helpless ohlldren. The Recorder spoke very sympathetically for aome time, touching the situation of tbe prisoner's family, and the necessity of pursuit* a life ot honesty; but the edict had gone forth, andSbers was nothing left but to consign him to prison tf atone for the offence he had committed: and In thl nresenoe of some of his little ehil dren, the father was-sentencd to the penitentiary.

They were raffled off for a thonaand dollars and won back by Calkin, Partridge and Lane, and purchased by Mr. Bryan Lawrence, 14 Centre Market, by whom thry will be slaughtered next week. They are fine specimens of corn fed oxen, and bear ample testimony to the practical skill of the American farmer. 8u?ntit Death ? Coroner Walters was called yesterday te held an Inqffest at No. 137 Charles street, on the body of Mary Ann Cotter, a native of Orange county, eged 47 years, who died suddenly on Monday night ? From evidence adduced before the coroner, It appears that the deceased was on a visit to the city, and on Monday afternoon went to the steamboat pier at the foot of Puane street, for the purpose of meeting a niece from Orange oounty. and on returning to the house ef her friends In Charles street, she was seised with an excruciating pain in the back part of her head. She was immediately oonveyed home, and medioal aid prooured, but without realising any relief, and died about midnight. Verdict, death by an effusion of serum upon the base of the brain. The Weather.

Police Intelligence. Robbing the Poor of Ireland ? Officer Gilbert K Hay*, of the lower polioe. arrrated yeitcrday, e men by the name of William R Derenay, on a charge of abioonding from the county of Monagnan, Ireland, carrying with blm 600 pound* eterling. being a part of donation* *?nt from tble oountry and other parta, for the relief of the tarring poor It appear* from the facta In thl* oaie, that the aocuaed.after embexiline the money.wee traced a* far as Kranoe, and tbara all track *u lost, until a few month* after. It waa ascertained that he had Railed from Liverpool for the United Stated. Consequently, upon thla Information, Mr Thornton, a member of the London deteotion police, arrived here by the steamer Caledonia, on Wednesday last, and engaged the aid of officer Hays, who at once set to work to aeoertala the whrreabouts of Derensy In the oourse of a oouple of days. Mr. Hays ascertained that the accused had exchanged several Bank of Logland notes and gold, at the exchange office of Mr. Alexander Taylor, in Wall street for Jersey bank bills; upon this, a due was at onoe obtained respecting the iooatlon of Derensy and on proceeding to New Brunswick, it was louud that the accused had purohased a farm About three miles from that place, andjooated thereon. Offloer Hays then made application to cue of the magistrates of that piece for a warrant, in order to arrest Derensy. to await a requisition from our Governor. This applloatlon was refused by the magistrate, which, as a matter of course, threw the offloers completely on their beam ends, until a method w?b Buupvu ut mr. iiajp, wug is yutj lu^vuiuun iu suvu matters, in order to deooy the accused into this State, finding it impossible to moke the arrest there Therelore, to effect tble objeot, Mr. Hays proceeded to the residence of Derensy, and informed him that the Jersey money thus obtained from Mr. Taylor wai a grant pro- ! portion bad, or counterfeit; and to make the matter correct and satisfactory, it would be well for him (Derensy) to come to New York and see Mr. Taylor. On this information, Mr Derensy felt much snrprfsed; bnt, not being able to return on that day, gave Mr Hays a note to Mr. Taylor, stating he would be in New York on Tuesday morning (yesterday) This all went on well, and an agent was left in New Brunswick to watch the departure of Derensy, and immediately telegraph the fact on to New York. This was done aooording to Instruction, and immediately upon the arrival of the aconsed, yesterday morning, at the foot of Courtlandt street, he was politely escorted before Justice Osborne, where he beoame alarmed at his situation, acknowledged the fact, and refunded near $2500 of the funds thus embezzled This man, it seems, was acting as treasurer of the institution oalled the Commissioners of Works. It further appears that Derensv was in this oountry about six years ago, when he left and returned back to Ireland, tearing here a wile and two oblldre- Hut shortly before OlbessliBg these funds be married u, and by his second wife obtained ?300 sterling, w' be brought r his country, leaving the wife behf and on nrriring here, took his first wife again, r sed n farm In Jei v, and, no doubt, intended ireep pigs, and live Weil for the balanoe of his life l it not been lor the perseverance and ingenuity of the above officers. Justice Osborne committed Derensy to prison, to await a further aotion in the matter. Charge of Highway Rabbtry.?Officers McManus and Owens,of the 6 th ward polioe, arrested, about ten o'olook on Monday night. Kranoia McCabe, alias Williams, on a charge of knookingdown a Mr. Terhune, in November last, at Albany, with another rasoal, who is now in prii it Albany on the charge, and stealing from his pera gold watch and $70 in monev- This MoCabe is man who wm arrested a few days ago at a porter '* called the " Fashion," in Duane street, by officer seit, bat was subsequently rescued by several present, the friends of the aooused, and has sinoe evaded the polioe until Monday night. He was entrapped by the above officers in Broadway, near Leonard street The prisoner was conveyed before Justice Drinker, and committed, andoffloer Upton will convey him to Albany this morning for trial, where, if convicted, be will reeeive not less than ten years in the State prison, and probably for life. Jlrrut of e Fern ale Shop Lifter.?Offloer Edwards arrested yesterday, a Frenon woman bytbe name of Louisa Soisson, whom the officer found residing at No. 138 Elm street, on a oharge of stealing a pieoe cf black silk valued at $9, from the dry goods store No. 48d Grand street, oooupled by James A. Duffy. The property was reoovered, and Justioe Timpson looked her up for trial Charge of Manslaughter.?A man by the name of Allen Bowie was arrested yesterday on a oharge of violently beating his wife a year age, by which violenoe she died. It appears that the accused, some yeara ago, had served out an Imprisonment In the State prison of seven years, and on many oooaslons he accused his wife with having been the oause of saoh imprisonment; for which he declared he would take her life. Consequently, on a dispute between tbem one night, he attempted to put his threat into execution by holding her uown in bed; and placing his knees upon each arm, held her nose tight with one band, aud the other plaoed over her mouth, until she fainted; when, after a short time, finding that she was ooming to again, the brute blowed down her throat, for the purpose, it was supposed, of etrangu jetton These, wUh oth^^ tE? husband, meantime, abaooaded, and has since be-n among the missing, until arrested yesterday.

The officers found them snugly seated in a " crib,'' located at No 43 Cross street, playing seven up for drinks. Upon their arrest, an overooat and one of the bats was found oo their perso a, whiob property was Identified by Mr. Tuttle, as a portion ot his stolen property. Justice Timpson looked them both up for trial. Political Intelligence. Election Contest.?It appears that Colonel Monroe, who was the whig oandidats for Congress fer the sixth Congressional District of this city, at the last election, has petltlensd that body against the return of Alderman Jaokson; the matter was of oourse referred to a onmmlttee of the House of Representatives; the committee made an order to take evidence in this eity, in relation to tba election, and the partlee, with their respective eonneel. attended to-day before Judge In graham, in the eeoondbranoh of the Court of Common I'leae, to take the testimony Several of the reporter* were alto in attendance, and the oouneel on both side*, obeervlng them, ?tated to the Court that they did not with to have the testimony made publio Hi* Honor then referred to the itatute, and atated that it declared that all evidenoe taken by order of Congressional committees, should be taken in private, and suggested to the gentlemen of the pre** the propriety of withdrawing-eome of them, however, eeemed disposed to demur, on the ground that the statute was unconstitutional, the constitution declaring, " that all courts of justice shall be held with open doors." It was then intimated by counsel, that an adjournment would be asked for, and that all future meetings woold be held in private. Whereupon, the reporters very reluctantly withdrew.

Jan. 12, 1848 The Cold Wtalhtr?AwJ'ul tiluation of a Drunkard?Military Ball, frc. Thin morning was undoubtedly the coldestthst we have experienced this winter, the tliermometer having indicated uo degrees above zero, in an out-door situation, at day light. The ice merchants are preparing to plough out from the surface of the Schuylkill river their annual supply of the commodity they deal in. The Delaware is likewise seriously obstructed by the floating ice, but the arrangements for towboats this winter, will remove this obstacle to the navigation of the river between the city and the bay. A wretched j inebriate, to escape perishing from the extreme cold of lust night, crept upon a lime kiln near the Schuylkill, and whs found this morning insensible, and conveyed to the hospital. His feet were both burned to a crisp, and his face and head so much scorched that bis 1 if- is despaired of. His name is unknown, and may never be disclosed, as he remains in a speechless condition. The National Grays, of this city, gave a splendid ball, last evening, at the Musical Fund Hall, which was well attended, and g ive infinite pleasure to all who participated. Among tue invited guests was Captain McClay, of the Scotch comP i*y, of your city,who became quite the lion from his gay Highland costume. Tlie lathes became quite enamoured with his tartan, and but for the lear of rendering somebody jealous, 1 might be tempted to give an account of bis h&rmles flirtations with the belles of the ball. The Remittor Kiulrttail ('milium v have declared a dividend of twelve per cent, in script; and the North American Insurance Company lias declared a semi-annual dividend of twelve percent in cash. The latter institution is in a flourishing condition, having been able, in addition, to place $50,000 to the credit of the contingent fund. An election is to be held to-day at the olfice of the Southern Loan Company, tor directors, to conduct the affairs of the new '1 radesnian's Rank, by which it will in future be known. The receipts of the Reading Railroad during the past year, were $2,002,945, being an increase of $102,120 of the receipts of 1846.
