Taylor still remained in his camup, await

goons, under Col. Ttw iggs, arrived at Cor
pus Christi on tte 26th ult. All were int
fine health and spirits Everv thing a
bout the camp was pe rfctly quict.
At about the same aime as the lira
goons, three compnies of Mlexican tra
*ders arrived at Gen. Taylor's camp with
a g-oodlv number of reports, but upon
which little reliance cotuld be placed.
One of these reports was, that a regiment
of Mexican troops, about 700 strotng, left
Tampico six weeks ptrevious ihr Mlatamuo
ros, butt their numbers had been retduced
to 300 by sickness and desertion on the
march, induced by the wvant of food and
water- At almost every military post in
the North'Eastern part of Mexico deser
tions were extremely frequent. Aristtt
had been seriously ill at Matamnoros, but
had so far recovered as to resume the do
--- tics of his comtmand. Getn Parades was
reported to be still at Mlentery, but with
less than 1500 troops, whbo were continu
ally deserting. The reader must receive
these reports strictly as repoits; Mexican

is proverbially uncertain.

The only drawback to continuing -this
encampment is the scarcity of wood and

two small wells in camp which supply a
very fair beverage.
The officersenjoy themselves amazing

all cut up! They purchase Mexican
ponies at from $10 to $30, and! excellent
nags they are to ride, too. The waters
abound with fish and oysters. both of a
superior kind, and the prairies adjacent
with rich (lavored venison. Large and
fat beeves are slaughtered daily for the
troops, all which, with the liberal supplies

There is rumor it camp, to whieb the
utmost credit is given, that fifteen hun
dred Mexicans have recently marched to
Matarmioros for its additional security.
This is all the news about the movem-nts
of t' e enemy known here.
It is supposed Gen. Taylor will act in
this "ay, viz: Wait for two months in his
present poslion, to know. what the Mexi
cans will do. If they do nothing, our
government will send a Commissioner to
Muico, to lay down the boundary of the
two countries. If Mexico refuses to re
ceive the Commissioners, and blindly
turns away from a peaceably settlement,
then our forces will immediately occupy
the mouilt and barders or the Rio Grande,
and establish that as the boundary, wheth
er or no.
Gen. Taylor is the very man the Gov
ernment should have ,elected for the del
icate and responsible duty of conducting
an "Army of Occupation." His judge
ment is ripeded by a long life of military
experience, and his clear, practical
views, the result of a common sense way
of looking at things. His courage is un
doubted, as his patriotism is unsullied and
pure. In a few words, he is a Soult for
industry, and a Fabius for caution ; but
they do say he is a Jackson for stubborn
ness. With his excellent good sense.
however, this is no deficit in his character.
