Washington, July 28, 1848.
Editors or Lkdokb : The telegraphic
wire being broken, I hasten to Inform you
by leller that the Compromise Bill has been
laid on the table b vote of 112 to 97.1 A
motion to reconsider was lost, 96 for, and 1 14
gainst it. So the bill is killed for this serf-
ion. i , i J ' ' " 1 i ; 1 i , .
It is now supposed that Congress will nil

. Washimgtoh, July 29, 1848.
One bright ray is at last shining upon the
darkness of our Congressional debate ; Con
gress will adjourn on the 14th of next month.
Let os be thankful for that boon ; for if Con
gress cannot agree on salutary laws, let it nt
least adjourn and cease to be a burthen on
the country! If Congress remained here till
December next, it is but too cloar, they could
not agree on any one important subject, so
completely are membors and Senators divided
among themselves. Neither Taylor men,
Cass men, Clay men, or Administration men,
re in the ascendency, and hence the ex
treme doubt that hangs over every measure
till the actual vote on it shows the feeling of
Congress on the subject.
We are actually approaching a state of
anarchy, in Congress and out of it, uiul the
old party lines are no longer capable of re
training the people. The fact is, parties,
have worn themselves out by intolerance, ve
hemence and persecution, and the incapacity
nnd blunders of their leaders. The great
men who laid the foundation of these parties,
and who personated great ideas, have with
drawn from the stage, and tho pigmies who
have learned their lesson by rote, and recite
it like school-boys, without comprehending
its meaning1, have lost their hold on the mas
ses. The latter are nbeut to reassume their
self-government. In vain do we see the lea
ders of both parties beat the rappct, "the
boys" wont answer. They are tired of be
ing led by men smaller than themselves,
whose only study is to take advantage of tho
foibles of others, and whose object it is not
to establish truth by eternal reason, but to
obtain votes for this or that wild theory by
appealing to the worst passions of mankind.
The country is about to rid itself of these,
self-styled patriots, and it is the presentiment
of the approaching crisis, which in advance
of the real event, has produced tho miaichy
There will be an effort made to galvanize
the Compromise Bill, by suffering the Oregon
Bill to pass in the House, (perhaps with the
Wilmot Proviso attached to it) and thus send
the bill to the Senate. The latter body might
then strike out all after the enacting clause,
and propose its own bill as an amendment.
In this manner, if the House persisted in its
own bill, a committee of conference might
be appointed with some chance of a reasona
ble compromise ; but I doubt the success of
such an expedient, tho Senate and House are
too differently organized to admit of an agree
ment between them. m r
nia, but two, besides "Mr. Wilmot, and lint
three, as erroneously stated in the Union of
this morning, voted for laying the Compro
mise Bill on tho table, viz: Mr. Strong, of
Head in sr. and Mr. Thompson, of Erie. Job !
Mann, of Bedford, voted against it, and is so j
recorded in tho Journal of the House. I men
tion this to prevent misconstruction and er.
Whitney's Railroad has also received its
quietus. The scheme requires maturing, and
the session is too fur advanced.
There is some talk in the House of adding
one or two more River and Harbor Improve
ment claims to the Military Appropriation
Bill, by way of a rider. If the House do so,
the Senate will strike it out, to save the Pre
sident the trouble of vetoing it. This adding
of objectionable claims to important bills is a
mere school-boy play, wholly unworthy of
the House, resorted to by a very small set of
men, "who strut their hour upon tho stage"
for the sole purpose of vexing the President.
To what deplorable expedients is the present
House of Representatives reduced in order to
drag out the session already advanced be
yond nil reasonable limits.
The delay of Congress is fatal to even)
thing, oven to the sending of troops to Cali
fornia and Oregon. They ought not to start
later than the middle of September, if their
lives are not to be perilled in a winter pas
sage across the mountains. But the House
that could leave a hundred thousand people
in California, New Mexico and Oregon with
out a government, subject to anarchy and
every other species of calamity, resulting
from such a state, will scarcely take into con
sideration the safety.of one or two regiments.
They have in more than one instance perilled
the safety of the whole army.

from the Union of this morning, has declined

f7 Tho Standing Committee, it will bo
seen, has ordered elections to be held on Sat

at this place on the Monday following. As
this will be one of the most important elec

will be no doubt, a general attendance.

past month have, it is saidf injured the potato

Ofiv Candidate. From present ap
pearances we think that Col. Wm. Bigler of
Clearfield, is tho most prominent candidate
for Governor. A strong effort is making m
some of the Eastern Counties, for Morris
Lonjrstreth, at present one of the board of
Canal Commissioners, a worthy and most
excellent man. Mr. Bigler, however, will, we
think, be more acceptable to the North and
West. Ho is n self made man, in the meri
dian of life. He occupied, for several years
pist, a seat in the State Senate, and has been
Speaker of that body. Freed from any con
nection with partisan cliijucs. ho would pro
bably unite tho party as closely as any other
man. Judge EM red has also been nominated
at a large meeting at Hnrrisburg, and other
places. Judge Kid red is a worthy mam
and would make an excellent Governor. He
has many warm personal and political friends
throughout the commonwealth ; but particu
larly in the Northern part of the State.
7 Hon. Geo. M. Keim has declined be
ing considered as a candidate for Governor,
at the next election. Ho says that he has
other duties to attend to, which take up all
his timp. Gen. Keim has many warm per
sonal and political friends in this section of
country, who would be pleased to see him in

This is tho most exciting subject that has agi
tated Congress since the foundation of the
Government. Tho Compromise bill, as re
ported with slight amendments, in regard to
appeals to the Supremo Court, passed by a
vote of 33 to 22 on the morning of the 27th
ult., nfter n session of twenty-one hours, viz :
from 11 o clock, A. M. on Wednesday, to 7
o'clock, A. M. on Thursday.

It is Rumored that General Taylor's letter
to the Independent Taylorites of Maryland,
distinctly states that the Louisiana delegation
had no shadow of authority for their conduct
in the Philadelphia Convention ; but ns tho
pledge had been niHde, he did not think pro
per to disavow them, and desired his letter
not to be published. We do not know how
true this statement is, but it is made in seve
ral quarters, ami the fact will probably draw
out tho letter for publication if there is any
misrepresentation iu the statement. In the
official proceedings of tho Taylor Convention,
one fact is mentioned not before stated, which
was, that a resolution was offered by Mr. Ar
cher, declaring that, "after a calm nnd de
liberate examination of- the recent leller of
General Taylor to Messrs. Pitts nnd othins,
and the statement of Judge Saunders to tho
Philadelphia Convention which he has recog
nized, we liud nothing iu them to require or
even to justify his Independent friends in
withdrawing from him their confidence and
support." ' This resolution was laid on tho
table by a vote of 28 to 19.

given below confirms the report of the de
feat of the Government forces under Busta

on Sunday morning, having left the city of
Mexico on the 14th. At the moment of the
courier's departure thonce verba intelligence
was received of the rout of the troops of Bus-
Ltumenle. It was stated that Paredes had rn
ceived large reinforcements from the envi
rons of Guanajuato. On Ihe 6ih, the insur
gents, under the command of Gen. Paredes
and Padre Jarauta, marched out of Guana ju.
ato and engaged the Government forces at
Marfil. An official report of this afiaii had
beeu received by the Government from Bus

wounded and 5 killed. His report is couched
in such terms as to leave no doubt he had
been worsted. As stated that "he had drawn
off his troops nnd reserved their ardor for a'
pitched battle." It seems the occasion wa
near at hand. The next day the insurgent
renewed the attack, whert a decisive . battle
took place, resulting in the defeat of the Gov

represented to have scattered iu various di

The foregoing account conflicts with tho

among the factory operatives. A strike hail
taken place lo force the mill proprietors lo
let the ten hour law go into operation. Some
of the operatives had resumed work in the

consequence the other malcontents attacked

Statistics ok tim: Mexican War. The
New Orleans Bulletin is summing up the los
ses in the Mexican war, by death iu the kit
tle licM and by disease. The former bear
but a small proportion to the killer. The
soldier in JNlexico hail much less danger to
encounter from the bullets of the foe than
from tho inhospitable climate. The whole
number of Ameiicaiib- killed iu the war. in
cluding tin! line of the Rio Grande nnd that
of Vera Cruz, is estimated at 2000, and the
wounded at 4000. It is impossible to sav
how many of Ihe latter have died in conse
quence of their wounds, but we bhould sup
pose not less than one fourth, say 1000, ma.
king in all 3000 deaths from liatile.
The ravages of disease were terrible. At
Perote there are 2600 Amoiieaii graves, all
! victims of disease. At Ihe Cily of Mexico
Hie deaths were, for the great or part of the
lime, 1000 monthly.
Tho first Mississippi Regiment lhat went
out lo the Rio Grande, buried 135 ou the
banks of lhat river -before il ever went into
battle, nnd finally brought back less than one
thitd of their number. They biillered dread
fullv at Buena Vista.
Tho first and second Pennsylvania Regi
ments, recen ly returned, went out 1S00
strong, (900 each;) they brought home about
600 of their original number. About 220 fell
in bailie, nearly 400 died, and about 600
were discharged as unlit for duly. How ma
ny of tho hitler have since died is of course
Tho third and fourth Tennessee Regiments,
also recently returned, lost 360 by death.
Neither of these regiments have been in ac

with 33 men, ho brought 19 out of it.
Tho most frightful instance of moilality,
however, lhat we have hcaid of, was in ihlit
gallant corps, Ihe Georgia Battalion, com-
mamled by a gallant and accomplished olli
cer, Colonel Seymour.
They were considered acclimated, and
actually suffered much less whilst in tho low
er country, Ihun when marched into the in
terior, on tho high kind. The batlulliou went
to Mexico 419 strong; about 220 actually
died ; a largo number were diheharged with
broken down and ruined constitutions ; and
many of them, no doubt, liave since gono to
their graves; and the battalion was reduced
to thirl y.f our men lit for duly ! ! On one jw

that had mustered upwards of 100 men, a
Mingle private answered to the call, and was
its sole living representative. The Captain,

the four Corporals, (every commissioned and
non-commissioned officer,) w vie" dead !
We have heard from officers of many other
regiments details very similar to those we

about the fair average losses for all the vol
