IWhereas is is natural and commendable
in every communit-y to regard with honest
pride those of its citizens who have ren
dered themselves illustrious by the display
of patriotism of the highest grade. And
whereas, the Saluda Regiment. claints the

Resolved, That as high as has been the
estimate we have hithert6 placed upou his
worth und usefulness, we would now go
much further and say, that in the brilliant

Secreary. The chairman briefly, but
eloqently explained the object of the
meeting. wh ereutpon Lieum. Laborde in
troduced the following Preamble and Res
lu ions, which were unanimously adopted.
We, the members of the Cadet Corps of
the South Carolina College, have re
ceived with no ordinary emotions, the
inteligetnce of the recent glorious, but
bloody victories of the American arms,
tear the City of Mexico. While partici
pating in the general feeling of the country
and mingling our votce with that of the
whole hand, we feel that we have a special
interest, w-hen we remember that some of
the gallant men who were foremost in bat
ale, but very recently wvere members of
this company, and allied to us by all thme
ties of a common interest an ardent affee
tion. While it is a matter of exultation
that they did their duty most nobly, and
have thus contributed to the honor and
glory of our, beloved State, we have to
mourn the death of the chivalrous Lieut.
Adams, so recently at officer among us,
who nobly fell on the bloody field of Chu
u busco,whbile proudly bearing the colors of
his company amid the storm oflbanie. But
we are ntot without high consolation when
we contemplate the manner of his death.
To die for one's counry, has always been
the aspiration of noble, and elevated mintd;
and the martyred hero has ever been re
garded as worthy of contsecration in thme
affectiotn of posterity. Otur lamented friend
sleeps in the bed or the soldier, and we
trust has won for himself imperishable'glo
Therefore, Resolved, That we will cher
tsht with pride andl affection the renmetm
branee of the hight honor, the 'gallant
bearing and many virtues of Lieut, David
Adams, and' that we tender to his ailicted
relatives the tribute of unaffected sorrow.
2 Resohld That in fttrther testimony of
our regard, we will wear ahe usual badge
af mourning for thirty days.

IMPORTANTP FROM J 4LAPA.
Extract of a Leuer.received in Cluzrleston, dated,
"JALm, (Mexico,) Sept. 30, 18-17.
We are to march in t wo hours to relieve
Colonel Childs at Puebla, wvho has been
attacked by 10,000 men uder Santa
Anna. Our force is tnow 4,000. under
command of Gen. Lane ofiluena Vista.
WVe start right oil'."
Palmello Regiment.-T ruly this regi
ment mayhbecalled thce devoted. It wilt
be recollected that itt the battles of the
18th and 19th August. their whole field
force was about 275 men-so thiinted down
had they been by sickness and death. In
those battles they had nearly tie half
killed and -wounded-leaving about
140 unharmed and fit for dutj.- it is true
that many of those slightly wounded may
have resumed their places in the ranks,
and on the other hand some may have
since become discharged by sickness and
other contingencies. Say that their field1
strength in the battles at the taking of the
city of Mexico ranged from 140 to 200;
it could hardly have exceeded thte latter
number. Now Mr. IKendall's rep)ort of
their loss (which is doubtless correct,)
makes ic 16 killed antd 83 . wvounded-n
aggregate of 99 out of 200- at the outside.
No bet ter shoaking thanr this, in the way
of fighting, has been made by any regi
ment during tho war. Add to this that of
their three field ogieers, two .having-ieent
killed, and the other severely wounded.
