A late decree of Governor Yldaurri's adopts the Cebal loe tariff, with such modifications as are supposed to give general satisfaction. The ports of Matamoros and Tam pico are closed to foreign commerce until new orders on the subject. The decree of the 21st ult., issued by Governor Vidsurri, strikes from the rolls of the army the names of every man hitherto belonging to it, "as crimi nals, and responsible for the blood that has been slied in the people'? struggle against tyranny," and the forces now in the field, and that overthrew the despot's govern ment, to supply their place?the generals, Ac., to be tried and punched for the murders and other atrocities committed in Santa Anna's name, and to be treated as malefbctois if they interfere in favor or against the arrangement of the present difficulties in the country. The wealthy city of Zacatecas has revolted in favor of the Monterey programme, and our Governor and second in command, the gallant Garza, entered the city of San I.uis Potosi at the head of 3,000 of our frontiersmen. Genei sis Geitian, Cruz and I'arrodi tied to Guadalajara on his apptoach. The revolt of these gentry again it their late master, and their having become all at onoe the friends of liberty, was of no avail. General Woll fn Matamoros seems bewildered after his master's bight, and no person is willing to take the com mand, which 1 understand be is willing to surrender. Vidanrri bas officially ordered him to surrender all pub lic property Ac., into the hands of the civil authorities; and on his' answer will depend whether we march on Matamoros or the city of Mexico. Woll will laugh the order to scorn, and will only abandon the place on out approach. Of this feet I am endeavoring to convince my companions now in the field. tranta Anna's flight brings Into action a new revolu tionary element, in tbo person of his tool and minion, General Catrera, the acting President of Mexico, who has pronounced in tavor of Alvarez's plan, so that we now have Alvarez and and Comonfort representing the South; Can era, the federal district, with Santa Anna's minions and felh w robbers, Pegollado and others in Mirhnacan and Central Mexico, and last, but first in Intelligence, courage and power to do, our own gallant frontiersmen of the North, whose van is led by the chivalrous Garza. The Issue will now be between the people and the military, and the sooner it is decided the hotter for the country. We are ready and willing to play our heads on the result, and very soon shall the world know who are the sovereigns of Mexico. A party of 140 of Woll's best cavalry, who came out to levy black mail on the inhabitants, came in conflict with 200 of our forces on the 30th ult. at ?? I.a Piedra, ' some nine miles from this place. Tho affair lasted one hour and a half, when we finally triumphed, after they had sustained a loss of thirty-four killed, thirty wounded, and forty ptiaoners. Their commanding officer was among ihe killed; snd within two hours after the action we executed two of their officers who had made them selves notorious by their atrocities. Our loss consisted of ten men killed and seven wounded. The loss sustained by the enemy shows that they made a gallant defence. Our force now here, snd which Is nil cavalry, that can he roucen'ratcd in a few hours, Is composed of eight hundred lior-emcn, Intended only to keep Woll within his fortifications, although ii is mortifying to beJLve that owirg to l is prrximity to Port Brown, this astounding criminal will c-cape with impunity.

On the TtU instant my prophecy was verified, and ex Geueral Adrian Woll, on the approach of (lunger, looked for safely in fiig-Ut. This incendiary, on the oigbt ol that memorable day, unknown to his offlcora or t? the people of Matamoro,. whom he had ho deeply injured, might have been wen, accompanied by a solitary smuggler, wandering through a dark aUey inth?city of Brown.-yilte, seeking ilajor Giles Porter's quarters in Fort Brown. Not even his accomplice and mistress, who has for years aided and ahetled him in hi* deprelations on society, accompanied him in his hurtled flight; but shp has the consolation now, aa we are informed in camp, of being under the protection of no loss a personage than Major ( lies Porter. Woll pr-ved himself the worthy disciple of the usurper Santa Anna, for on the day he left he stole every dollar in the Ulili ary chest at Matamoroe. The sum total of Woll'* stealings arnonnts to about seventy thousand del lars, which is trilling enough when compared with th ? wholesale lObbeties committed by his late mister th .(exlean despot. Woll is by this time in New Orleans, whet# he will remain until the arrival of the next steam er, witu hi' unstress on board. Interes lngco,.plo?reallr worth seeing.

NEWSPAPER ACCOUNT. Hie .steamship Nautilus, Captalu Thompson, from Bra zos Santiago via Galveston, arrived at New Orleans) let. 1. The news is interesting. First, a* to the Mexican affairs, the Flag of the 16th, slier chronicling the departure of Gen. Woll on the Nau tilus for this port, on her previous trip, says:? The sudden departure or Gen. Wool threw the garrison at Matamoros into confusion, which remains "worse con foundtd" up to the present time. Command of the troops has fallen upon Col. Castro, as the senior officer, who, we learn, is in favor of pronouncing for the plan or Ayuthi, which, we lielieve. ia the plan of Aivaret, and provides for the retention of the army. To Ihis latter clause, how ever, the Vidaurri plan objects, and insists that sol ilery of the old army shall surrender unconditionally. Some of the garrison at Matamoros, who, we are told, are beaded by Col. Savei lego, are fur the plan of Vidaurri, and thus the broil continues in the city while a con. siderable force of Vidaurri'* army, under Cauda, lupe Garcia, Hre inewacing the city from without. The inaurgent force ia variously numbered at from aix to twelve bundled men. Correspondence has l?en going on between the Iresieged and besieger*. No arrange ment has yet been male we learn?the insurgents de manding an unconditional surrender, and the besieged contending for employment. Vidaurri, however, is said to he making lapld marches fur the scene of con tention, and his arrival will doubtless force a capitula tion on bis own terms. The Flag, of the tWd, says the revolution on the other hank of the river still gains ground, and adds:? Intelligence haa been received in Matamoroa to (he ef fect that San Luis I'otosi hud been captured by an insur gent force. Gen. Gultian killed, the army dispersed and the city made t<> change its plan or pronunciamento from that or Ayutla to that of Monterey. Tampico, it is said, has also pronounced for Vidaurri and his plan; Gen. Ca sanova, the commanding general, haa been driven from the place, and civil for military rule substituted. Matamoros, however, is still In the hands of the regu lar troops, under command of Colonela ltosave and Castro. The latter of ihese officers issued a bulletin on Saturday lust, stating in substance that orders had been received from the existing government, directing the cessation of hostilities until further orders. With this view he had invited an aimistlce with the insurgents who, under Colonels Capistrun and Gurcia, have had him environed. The insurgents, we learn, demand the surrender of tire city. They are willing the troips shall leave, but all the aims and munitions of war they demand shall be handed over. To this the army objects, and demands the right to their anus and munitions, with a certain amount of money. Neither party seems to have their wishes as yet. The insurgents have fallen back a little dietauce from the town, but still have it besieged, and await theairival of reinforcements and artillery, while the citizens are Hock ing to ihis side with their property, fearing a sack. The Hat) of the 16th has the following:? Our^usuully quiet place has just been outraged by the speraaoi acts of two desperadoes, recently arrived from Curpu Christ!. These lawless men, by name Bill Houston and Alick Shannon, on Monday night entered a gambling house near the market, and, drawing their revolvers, do liberately commenced shooting into the crowd of Mexi cans there assembled. One or the Mexicans was killed no the spot, and three others wounded, ons of whom has since died, After this iiendi-h act the murderers made g"od their escape for parts unknown. Stwi from Triu. The Galveston Civilian, iu iu cumnierclul aitirle,dated Pent. '_7, says:? Business In this place has been active for the season. Arrivals ef produce have been moderate ouiy. But for ti e continued prevalence of the yellow fever at Houston we should have liberal receipt* now. The rivers remniu closed for navigation. We have had steady, fine weather here, and we get very gocd accounts of progress of the cotton crop from east em and middle counties, while complaints from counties west, along the eo?s'? are confirmed; many plantations in Bruzorin county will, from the ravages of worms, save only one tourtli to one third of a crop; and letter* from Matagorda and adjoining counties, speak of oue-half o| an average crop iu the eventofgood weather fn m hence fotward to the close of the season. Sogur promise* well. Grinding will he commenced on ninny plantations within two weeks should the weather lemain favorable. Tli* stale of the health of this plan- continues verv satisfactory, an 1 a* tbe yellow fever is reported on tbe wane at New Orleans, strong hope? are entertained that the scou ge will not visit us this season. From H< uston we learn that although few persons fn m the interior ventured in, business was active and laigo quantities of goods were being sent off every day. Mn'-e our last report the offerings of cotton in market hare been light, and sales are coiiiiuod to small lots at previous rates. The accounts of an i^lve qeculttin demand for fine grades of cotton at New <b leans have caused imrca-ed inquiry for such here, tint the receipts present hut little of classes above middling and the de liveries of n<w cotton during the past week show a con ideruble proportion of gray and leasy cotton that can not lie classed over good ordiuury to low middling. There were seventeen death* in Houston duiing the week ending on the 28th, of which fourteen were from yellow fever. The I (strict Court for Bexarccmn'y is in session iu San Antonio. The 7eco,i say* that owing to t To great num ber of ruses ihat have been accumulating for years upon the civil docket, it will lie impossible for the Court to gel through with half of them. The I avacu Btrald, of the 22d, s?ys the health of that city continues excellent, and the daily receipts of cotton ate The staple is pouting in Irotn all suctions of the country. Tliet-an Antonio Trran says some of the < 0*1 found in ibiit neighborhood has been tried in a bin -k smith'a shop and ptonounced ''good stone coal." ttth'T coal bedi have been found within a few mile* of -'an Antonio. A letter to the Galveston Nmm, from Corsir.ina, states that Mr. Benjamin Fortson was inuniered a few nights since, near his own plantation, While ant fire hunting with bis overseer. Mr Hugh Cooper. The letter adds ? All that is known of the affair, apart from oreiilar demonstiau'on. Is the slatemenst of Cooper. He says that KoTsti n had just silled a deer, and that they were riding home, Mr. F. thirty yard* behind, when 11 gun was fired, and For stun said, 'Cooper. I am shot; I am a dead man.'' ''oopcr took paina to arouse the neighborhood. The Coroner's jury, after the most careful I ion. and after listening to many rumors which are out. accounting for the act in various way. came to the conclusion that Cooper was the murderer. When this verdict was rendered Cooper was arrested and is now In jail awaiting an ex ? miration. The .-an Antonio /ys'qer. of the 22d, say-:?A gentle man conversant r> ith the main incident* tells us that the qnlet and industrious community of Brauntel* was siartied lately by a knowledge of the fart that one of their citizen* ha! b'en mnr.iered in Ids bed. and by his own wife?his daughter and son in-law, it is *up|H>*ed, as-entiug.

Mr. Edwards, being standing counsel for the Consulate, was present protectively, ao that he might, il neceeaary. aid in the demurring to the introduction of extraueuu* matter. Ex Judge Beetle, on the part of the accu-ed, said that his h amed associate* and himself were clearly of opinion that several counts in (he indictment were bad. and he desired to know if the District Attorney would elect which count- he would proceed on. The IMstriet Attorney could not make any select Ion. Mr. Beebe said that if it was understood that they re Wived the right to make a motion a- to the imperfect a of the indictment, he would not now delay the court by argument which it is probable the nature of the D-stimo ny would render unnecessary.

It will be remembered that on the new* of the lamnua Koeita reecue. in the Ray of Smyrna, by Copt, lugraham, reaching the I'nlted State*, it created no little excite ment, and In thia city a nut meeting of democrat* of every nation wo* held at Metropolitan llall to gire vent to the feelings of admiration and approval felt by them for the gallant and manly conduct ot the commander ?/ the St. Louie. At that meeting a committee was ap pointed to prepare and deliver a suitable testimonial to Capt. lngrabam on hi* arrival in thi* country. The committee immediately net about their work, and pro cured a medal, but were unable to preneot it, from tha fact that Capt. lngrabam has but once routed N?>? York since that time, ant then passed through It ?o hastily that the committee did not know of hi* arrival. The medal in the ineautimo wan de posited In the flank of Commerce for safe keeping. On Tuesday last Captain Ingrahani arrhed in the elty, and on heing notified, expressed hia wlllingne-a to accept tb ? testimonial provided it would be presented without tin necessary parade and publitily. In accordance with this request the presentation took place on Thursday night, at the Me'rooolitan Hotel, In the presence of some titty per sons. Among those in the room were several Italian and tlungariun patriots, members ot the Cuban Junta, and the member* of the pieseutation committee, Messts. Henry II. Morange, Felix Forrest!. Col. H. Forbes, Dr. Cltas. 4chamm. A. Iluszewski. (lustarus Mi> hsels, J. McMuIlen. Julius Kroehl, 1>. Corcourler, F. Freay, and others. Captain Ingrahani is s tall, thin, wiry man, of shout 40 year* of age. HI* demeanor Is mistest and re llilrg and those who saw him could hardly realise that he was the spirited defender of the ontr.iged Kor . ta. Ills manner of speaking is hurried and nervous, and betrays u man ot quick and leadily framed conception*, lie wit diesstd in the usual naval costume. Mr. Henry H. Morange, on behalf of the committee, nta'a a brief ?|s>eeh In presenting the medal, whereupon Captain Ingrahani replied substantially a* follow*:? I cannot hut feel highly gratified thai a number of my fellow citizens of New York hare thought my conduct on the vd July, at frnyr na, in rescuing Martin Kosxla from the Austrian authorities, of such a character as to In dure thi'in to pieseut me with this lieautiful metal. I perfoimed but my duty in rescuing one whom I thought, under the circumstances, entitled to the protectl in he elaimed at my hand*. Before making the demand upon the Au*tiiau Consul for the r?lease of Koszts, I urged upon the Governor of Smyrna the propriety of hi doing so. s* the outrage-was committed within his jurisdiction He declined, and infmuiod me he could only report the case to Constantinople. It then liccame my duty to act, and I happily succei ded, without bhsslshod, in snriug thi* outraged man finm the punishment that awaited him had he been carried to Trieste. In ac -opting thi* allow me, gentlemen to return you my grateiul thank* for the (tattering manner iu which y >u have spoken of my conduct. I shall a I way* gratefully remember thesnthu siastic manner in which my conduct ha* been approved by the citizens of this great city.
