FROM OUR CORRKSPONDENT. 8
VzA Cauz, 8th April.1847. .1
Mr. Editor -Our Brigade returned to this 6
place from Alvarado, on yesterdny morning, a
after ani absence of seven days from the rest of ,4
the army. I was so much exhausted from the t4
march, that I have been unable to write until
this moment. As hot as the weather is here,
and it is as hot as you can imagine, on our re- C
turn from taking the town just mentioned, we P
marched, the first day, eighteen miles, the se- n
cond twenty-one, and the third day twelve bj it
12 o'clock, M].
We met with no resistance at Alvarado. and e
were even deprived of the honor of receiving
the surrender of the town. According to ar
rangement at Head Quarters, the navy was to
co operate with the land forces, and the first
vessel which arrived at the town, being under
the command of Lient. Hunter. after firing two tI
or three shots over the placc. caused it to raise g
the white flag. Some of'the navy sailed twen
ty miles higher np the river, and took another si
town of considerable importance for its fruit
and inland trade. At Alvarado, we captured
about twenty or tlhirty pieces of cannon, but
many of them being of very inferior quality.
we carried off only eight or ten guns.
The inhabitants of the country through wh'ch
we pass, manifest much less hoslility towards C
us, than I could have ekxpected. On our march b
from Alvaradothey might have killed hundreds ri
of onr straeglers. if they had been so disposed, j
but they injured no person. We anticipate no
apposition between this and Jalapa, and very q
little even at the latter place. I presume we .
will take up the line of march in a few days for i
the interior. We will either pass our sumnimer a
qtarters in the country, or proceed directly to vt
the city of Mexico,'where we will meet the d
whole strength and glory of Santa Anna.
Vera Cru begins already to become Amer.
icanized. We have a Theatre established here,
a Printiog press,. and two or three American S
stores. I send you a copy of the paper. from it
which you can ascertain snore precisely the h
terms of the surrender, and the amount of pro- te
perty received, asad also the marclhings and 'I
countermarchings generally of the army.
We have some sickness in our regiment,
and I regret to say, thast on the day before yes
terday, lost three mon from the ranks, by death.
One of them, was a man from our own coin
pany. Win Reynolds. who, while in health, a
performed the du'tes of a isoldier, as cheerfully, v
and I may add, as nobly as any man in the re- si
giment. I feel more keenly the loss of Rey- f
nolds, because I wias well acquainted with him,
and knew his quiet and manly virtues
I am well and hearty, and stouter than when
I left Edgelield.
I will write frequently. and when I get rest
ed, will give you a description of the country
and its inhabitants.
P. S. From my situation in the army, during
and since the siege, I have been unable to send
my letters as promptly as I would like.

The war here is at an end. The restless

few of them are men of substance;

tat our flag should wave over themi'.

sys that the insurrection is extinguished

rith the force under Kearney, Fremont
nd Stockton, will constitute a military
irce which will sot at defiance all the
forts of the Mexicans.
The Union has also learned from an
rticle in the "Californian," just received.
hat a'strong part of the population is in
avor of a union-with the United States.
The only drawback to thin interesting

rient furnished by a correspondent of the

ispute had taken place between Gen.
[earney and Coin. Stockston as to whom
hould be confided the civil government
f the territory. Col. Fremont, it is-said,
spoused the cause of Stockton: and joined
