F. Tracy, Traveling Agent. COMMUNICATiONsT" l*Ui-r liom the i'illeeulh Regiment. Guam) Ecobe, La., April 20, 1804. To the Editor nf (he J’ress . Your ever welcome paper, tho Prtsa, is u regular visitor to our regiiueul. Like some other papers it is subscribed aud paid for, or to he paid for, mostly by men who, out of their $18 per mouth, can atl'ord to take a pa per for the beuefll ol themselves, their less liberal comrades, and their officers, who can not afibrd to pay for a paper, hut still take several, lor when private Smith or Brown is absent on duty or sick, his paper is read aud used in his commander’s lent, instead of he ocui IAJ U1UI U1 glVCU turns liiC &SIUiilC9. The Press has been gaining favor among the soldiers until it is now almost a universal fa vorite. At first there were many opposers to the liberal principles it advocated; hut lime has overcome most of the old prejudices aud ■howu that the Press was right. At present the troops of this army are in very good condition, having nearly completed a long line of fortifications oi earth work aud logs, iu the form of a semicircle, each ehd resting on the river, and are now laying out the camping grouuds, aud making prepara tions as if we were going to stand a siege, while at the same time we tiave orders to he ready at a moment’s notice to move on the enemy. Perhaps he is iu our rear; if so, we shall certaiuly have to move on him soon, for at the rate the river is lalliug, we shall not he able to get auything to eat up here long. So we shall have to go back to Alexandria; then we expect to he told that “ the object of the expedition has been accomplished.” Well, if to advance to Mansfield, and in the afternoon give the enemy a baggage train, 18 pieces of artillery and prisoners, and reverse our order of march, was the object aforesaid, then we have accomplished it. However, they tell us that we have come out ahead on the whole, by four cannon, a large amount of prisoners, aud a very large quantity of cotton,sugar aud corn, that we have either sent into market or destroyed; hut then wo might have had Shreveport as well as not. Tile only trouble was, our army went into battle wrong end foremost- The boys are grumbling severely about it; somehow, they do not approve of skirmishing with loaded mule-teams ; and the only fault the rebels find with the Quarter master, is that we wore out most of tuo shoes coming to see them. Long before this reaches you, you will have had the details of the battles, aud if justice is done, the records will show that Maine did her duty on these bloody fields. It is a grand and wild scene to witness the maneuvers aud contests of contending armies on a battle-field, and strange to see how easi ly men sometimes become panic-stricken, and retire before a heavy lire or a charging foe, often, too, when on the eve of success. Men seldom seem to remember that they lose more on a retreat than if they remained iu line of battle; and if they do their duty aud do not break, the enemy certainly will. Acting on these principles, 500 iu line would be iuvinci ble against three times their number as armies ordinarily fight. In the battle of Pleasant Hill one could easily distinguish the ditfereul troops by their manner of fightiug. The rebels fought and charged with a short, sharp yell; the Western corps with a more prolonged half yell, half whoop; the Eastern troops fought more stead ily, with less noise, if we except their musket ry The Fifteenth ltegt. is anxious for the cam paign to close, so that they may be permitted to see the “promised laud” again, hoping that they may bo allowed to rendezvous iu Portland. Ckxtixei.a. The Mexican Question Viewed front a British Maud-Point. The following is from the Salford Times, a paper in the North of Eugland: The American House of Representatives has passed a resolution declaring that it can not acknowledge a military monarchy found ed upon European protection on the ruins of an American republic. This is a direct chal lenge to the French-formed Mexican empire. It is the Monroe doctriue,stated as au abstract resolution. We always expected something of the kind, and only wonder that it has been so long delayed. It may never be acted on; all will depend upon the iuture course of tbe American Republic itself. So long as the re bellion of the Southern States keeps the Gov ernment occupied nearer home, the Mexican empire will be let alone; and an Austrian dynasty inay rear its head there without much danger al> extra. The French Emperor will not be pleased at this American resolution.— However little it may mean for the present, he cannot tail to see that it means mischief some day or other. It is a challenge to light as soon as tbe challenger has his hands clear of other lighting engagements. The resolu tion speaks disparagingly of a “military mon archy,” as if a military lepublic like that of Mexico were not every whit as reprehensible. This is the feeling with which Englishmen would desire to look at the experiment. If the new rule can secure social order and po litical liberty to Mexico, wo shall be pleased that tbe experiment has been made, and that it has succeeded. The old state of things there was a discredit to humanity. Nominal ly a republic, it was a cut-throat despotism— an anarchy as great as that which finally put an end to the Roman empire. The Ameri cans regard the matter very differently from us. They consider themselves the real heirs to the soil of Mexico after the mixed breeds now iu possession, like the Kilkeuuy cats, have eaten cacli other up; and this development of the rule of the Stars and Stripes has ior years lieeu regarded as a mere question of time.— Now, the split of the great republic itself pre sents a complete change of relations between America and Mexico. Who such asserters of tbe Monroe doctrine as the patriots of the Southern States ? Since the rebellion they have clean given up that doettine, and they hail an Austrian and Frencli influence in their immediate neighborhood. The Federal Gov ernment will be wilfully blind if it do not see the real meaning of the French meddling iu Mexico. The Emperor Napoleon sent bis troops there to show his feeling and lielief that the breach in the American Republic is ODe that never will be healed. He may be wrong in this belief ; but it is the only ration al ground on which we can account for his pledging the property and the army of France to the establishment of an herditary empire in Mexico.
