At nt o'oioek on the evening of the 23d, there was n incH of war held, at which all the principal officers re present. Some on this oooasion were fer making petitions- of surrender to us but ths majority d for a retreat, and for embarking all their nitlone of war. The tumult amongthem was great, ten o'oioek, on the breaking up of the oounoil, there e good deal of firing, and some of the most exid among them, it is said. attempted to shoot their ionel, Andrado.

On their retreat there was a great delion from their ranks, several hundreds ot the solta dispersing themselves ia the oouatry, quitting ranks with their arms and ammunition. When squadron of the euemy were informed of this reit, they also immediately abandoned the oastle, with ?e vessels of war. wbioh they leit behind, nnd thus the tormidable barrier open to our vestals. Shortly ir this, the steamer, " l'he Liberator," was sesn loaohisg, having en board Ueuerni Brlceno, cooiBder of the national and invincible army, who wai corned by all the citlz-ns of Maraualbo, and all the pie and troops, with immense joy and loud cheers. ) joy was occasioned by the fact that this was the i time of oar seeing a lriendiy vessel in the lake, i precisely the very vessel which had inflicted the it serious damage upon the enemy, in the glorious tie of the llitk Vesteiday evening sixteen other wis arrived, which, including those which have n taken from the enemy, now compose our naval adron on the lake Among the vessels taken, the very same corvette, which for so long a e made our people tremble, by Its parricide ta, which now at last is a prisoner. A magnificent ibow stretched a crocs the take at the moment of the val of the rquadron. and seemed to be a providenaigcal of our triumph and success. It was hailed ueb universally. This morning, ths Admiral oomiding the squadron has gone in pursuit of the enss vessels which are left.

Everywhere on the borders of the i, the enemy has left behind?perhaps as a record of odious presnce?the Vandal marks of the extensive ilation he has oaueed iu villages, oities, towns and is, the sight of wbioh is enough to excite tears in eyes of every true Veuezuelan.

H , Patriot, (iloia > Met >h 8 ] It is truly 11 most remarkable document; it is rut gisieru? like nothing ever before seeu, heard ol, or imagined. It is simply a limit string of words, burglingly put together, wholly devoid of any sense or meaning. It is emphatically original; and unlike everything else ongiual. there is no danger ?t ita ever being plagiarized. Comment upon what it contains would be talking ofiivihing, lor there is nothing in it. It is silly, insipid, common place, made up of unmeaning generalities, shallow absurdities, and awkward non-committalism. It contains not one single indication ot what his course is to be, or what principles will govern hie administiauon. If unfiling can be interred irom if, that inference must be drawn Irom what is not in it, fur lliete is net an id-a in it ol suflioient strength i? sustain an tulerence. lint from want is not said, we may sateiy infer that Gen. Taylor is to be a mere automaton, a perl ret mail of straw, to be used, moved, and directed by his cabinet. Tins idea was promulgated lor and by hun belore his election, and this course will best suit his supporters. His cabinet will be made up ot bitter, violent and ultra federal politicians, and to thein the destinies of the country are to be commuted for tour years, without the restraining and controlling influence of an officer chosen by the people 10 adraiuuter their government and protect their rights and interest. [Krcm the Portland Argus (dem ). March 7 ] The inaugural we have read with care and in' terest Upon the whole, we are pleased witn it. Tiie General enters upon no details, but enunciates broad principles upon which he snail act. These principles are democratic; and it the new President shall failMutiy act up to them, the whole country will lie rocked with wmg ludiguatiou meetings. Whether he will have the courage aud the strength successfully to resist the mighty federal influences that press upon him, remains to be seen. For the good of our common country, we earnestly hope he ruay. It is neither our pleasure or intention 10 be factious. "Principles, not men!" now and always. If Gen. Taylor shall adhere to the principles he avow s, we shall be most ready to accord htm and them our support; but it otherwise, then, as ever, shall we do our utmost to arouse the people in opposition to his administration. From this inaugural, the "ultra" whigs will glean but little comfort. No encouragement is given them, even by implication, that the old issues will be revived by the administration, or the old doctrines of federalism sustained. A national bank, a protective tsrifl, rei>eal of the Sub-treasury, general proscription?what shall be done with them for the next tour years'! Senator Clay must whet his swordforan onslaught. [From the Koohreter Advertiser. March 7 ] This is a plain, Bimple, unpretending document. It is not?for anything contained 111 it?particulaily obnoxious to objection. It deals in generalities almost as vaauelv as itnv kinelv superb. It'it foreshadows any particular policy it is certainly rather of a whig character. This may perhaps be inferred as much from its reference to the judicial constructions of the constitution, and to the practice of the cailier Presidents under it, as from auy other fact. The language used by htm 111 this connection is rather such as belongs to the whig vocabulary, and has a sort of meaning antagonistic to the democratic doctrine in regaid to the veto power. It implies, probably, no more than Gen. Taylor has belore declared in regard to the relative duties of the President and the legislative branches ofthe government. We should iuier that Gen. Taylor means to exercise the veto power only to prevent the passage of laws clearly unconstitutional; and that in determining the question of the constitutionality of any law, he will acquiesce in such construction ofthe constitution as shall have been adopted by the courts or previous Presidents, entirely independent of his own opinion on the subject. In this view there is error of principle, if the President is essentially a part of the lawmalting power. If he is not, why is his signature to all laws required by the constitution! Precedents are well in the courts, and should there be followed, and in all places they should be respected?but we cannot admit that the President or either house of Congress, is bound authoritively by precedents or by judicial decisions. The inaugural is more remarkable for what is omitted in it, than for what it contains. It is entirely non-committal upon almost every question of public interest. Perhaps it may be inferred from it that the President is in favor of harbor and river improvements?but it that be so. his opinions on this question are very guardedly intimated, lie sayB no more than Mr. Polk often said, or might suy, "that he should study to recommend such constitutional measures to Congress as may be necessary to improve rivers uud harbors." Even in this guarded way?this is about the only aflirmative measure of special public interest at the present time, of whicn Gen. Taylor professes to be in favor, aside from those common place topics in respect to which diversity of opinion can scarcely exist. We confess we nave our fears that he will turn out a whig after ailthough possibly not an ultra whig. His cabinet, however, certainly has nothing about it at all equivocal. All itB members are decided, strong, ultra whigs. His chiet cabinet oflicer, Mr. Clayton, is a tariff whig in the highest degree. All the other members of the cabinet have been United StateB Bank men, high tariff m< n?all opponents of the Independent Treasury. With euch a cabinet, we can hardly see how he can keep his promise net to be an ultra whig. But we shall Eoon see. Gen. Gainfs in New Orleans.?Among the fruestnat the celebration of the 22d ult., in New Organs, wasMaj Gen. Guinea, who gave the following address and sentiment, in reply to a sentiment complimentary ol himself:? Mr President and gentlemen In tendering to yon my gratefnl acknowledgments for this token of your regard, I must take oocaeieu, though not an orator, to say a few words of myself. A man who has arrived at the age of threescore and ten, and whose commission in the service of hie country is now half a century old, may be excused in talking a little about himself. When I entered the servioe of my country, more than fifty years ago, the deepest impression which rested upon my mind, was that whlah parental affection had inculcated,?that if ever i aspired to commaad, I must first learn to obey. This sentiment was first imparted by my mother, who was a friend of Washington, and had imbibed it from him i made a pledge never ta forget this sentiment. I entered the army. I took the oath required by law, of true aileglanoe and fidelity to to the United Slates, not an allegiance to any party or olique. but to the whole United 8tates, and nothing hut the United States. This oath, taken by me fifty years ago, has always been faithfully kept in letter and spirit. Obedience has always bsen regarded by me as the cardinal virtue of a true eoldler. If my duty did not require me to commit a crime, I have never hesitated in its performance In my ooartc. at the commencement of the Mexican war, for whiah I have been oensured by soma, i acted under this sense of duty. I will not owtl yonr attention to the circumstances under which that good man and able soldier, Governor Maray, called me from my oommand of this division My eondnot then, I am bappy to find, has met the approval of your excellent Governor, and of the gallant volunteers of this State. Subsequent events proved its wisdom and polloy. I rejoice to receive the approbation, so cordial and sincere, of the eitisen soldiery of my oountry. I value their good opinion I have iried them on many occasions, and never found them wanting. In thirty-two battles, skirmishes, and sieges, I have been associated mith waIimtaapd knwa awes fniiti/l them wallanfr and excellent soldiers-the best soldiers oar country ana aflotd. I hare had cipeolal occaalon to try end know tbeworth and valor, especially of the volunteers of Louisiana. It givee much pleneare end pride to be reetored lo my old oommand of thle division. I eat the first offloer of the United State* army who ever relieved a President elect,and I trust I may not ba an unworthy euoceeeor of so good a man and brave a soldler (Hurra for old Zaok !) I would desire no more glorious exit from life?no higher honor, than to fall In battle by the side of such mea as the volunteers of Louisiana But my remarks grow tedious, especially as we have so many more Interesting subjects before us to discuss But I oannot ooootude without referring to the object of this day's celebration, to wit: The 1 memory of the sege and soldier.

H., by moi jliine, two of whom died?an aged lady and young child. An adopted daughter of the old lad purchased twenty-five cenis worth of morphine c an apothecary in the city of Manchester^ a part c which she put into a preparation ot liquorice whic old Mrs. Blaisdell was in the habit of taking ; th dose proved fatal, and within a few hours she wc lound dead in her chair. Previous to this, hov ever, the girl had tried its effects upon a dog, whic were such as to lead the iamilv to suppose it wi "running mad," and it was killed. She returnc to Manchester without exciting suspicion of tl act she had committed 111 the mind of any one?i lact, she had always been considered an honei trebly girl, and had been treated by the family i a child and sister. Within three weeks she r turned to New Boston, gave a dose to the child i tea, which proved fatal within twelve houra?fal ing immediately into a comaton state, or profoun slumber, from which it never awoke. Just oft* the funeral ot the child, she dissolved a qunntil in tea, prepared lor the remainder ot the family,* which Mr. and Mrs Blaisdell partook sparingly, r< marking that it had an odd taste, and reques ed her opinion of it, as she sat at her right ham She took a tea-spoonful into her mouth, and lir mediately spit it out, nnd other tea was prepare) Mrs..

Search wa then made for the poison; the girl showiug cor siderable trepidation, she was, after considerabl reflection, charged with the crime, which ah stoutly denied, yet giving evidence of guilt by he manner. She was suffered to return to her en ployment in Manchester: but came to New Bosto voluntarily on Saturday last, and for the sole pu pose, as she says, of confessing the deed.

Tri e Story ok Yankee ErrTKRi'RiSK.? Literal one of the ceolest operations that we ever knew the annals of trade, recently came to oar noiii from a sonrce worthy of entire credit. New En; land js said to have but two native products, gr nite and ice. We have an ice story to tell that worth hearing. A gentleman long identified wii the ice trade, having entered into it as early < 1M05, after some twenty-five yean of successsi enterprise, thought to enlarge his sphere of knov ledge and action by entering into other mercanti business. He soon became entangled by his reli tion to seme unfortunate mercantile houses, ar found himself a debtor to the amount of $210,00 This must have given him more of a chill than h ice-houses ever did. But he knew that a fai heart never w on either fair lady or noble prize. I: told his creditors that it they would give htm tin and not hamper him at ail, he would pay the whol principal ana inteiest. For thirteen years he I bored for it, nnd last year he made the closing pa ment on $210,000 principal, and $70,000 interet He did it in his old business, as the ice ktng of tl globe. He sold his cargoes in the great sourhe ports of the two hemispheres, at low prices, ke rigid faith, bought largely the needed storehou* in the various centres of the trade, secured tl lands around his ponds, made friends evervwher and now comes out with an independent fortun and tree ot debt. Such was his generous polic that the English residents ot Calcutta presented hi with a fire-proof stone storehouse, as a token ot r Fpect and to retain bim in that market. He taki a very cheerful view of hia past misfortunes, at thinka himself, on the whole, better off for er harking in the disastrous business which caust hia embarrassments, and yet enlarged his facilitii for his old traffic more than enough to make i the loss. Honor to the man who labors to pay h debts, instead ot creeping out of his reaponaibilitl through any small hole in the crevices of the lai > nd allowing his creditors 10 sutler while he par |>ers himself over hia ill-gotten gaina! The abo< incidents show ihe power of a cheerful purpos and the worth ot veracity on the one hand, ai confidence on the other.

He informed us that s- trader who had just returned from the Camanche l" country, informed hirn that the Jjipans und Camunches had united, for the purpose of attacking *? the trains thut may start in the spring from 8an Antonio or Chihuahua, and from Ittdepeodevos, Mo., for 8anta Fe anrl California Thev told the ? trader that they would remain on the Texas fron{ tier, killing the inhabitants that may be thrown in ? their way, and Healine their property, until the r" grurs sprung up, when tiiey would move oil and H inakr their preparations to attack the trains Irorii V. the above pieces. The trains from Arkansas, he '' was told, would not be molested. The Carnanches have a singular idea ot our government. They look " upon Texas hb a portion id Mexico, with which goie vernnaent they hHve always been at war, and upon 18 Missouri not us a part ol the. United Mates, but as J* a government within itselt. They express a dislike to the people ol Missouri, and n determina18 tion to attach any trains starting from that State. The trader endeavored to convince them that, by }e attacking either of the trams, they were fighting in the whites, but they refused to listen to such (to "? them) absurd Btory.
