REMINISCENCES OF THE PAL.
OF GREAT MORTALITY, &c.
Constant inquiries are made, Mr. Edi
for, as the causes of the great mortality in
-fhe 'almetto Regimont. during its service
in the Mexican war. Many reasons have
-been assigned; but, for the most pnrt, they
have little 'oundation it truth. It- is not
difficult, indeed, to perceive a vein of per.
sonal bad-reeling runtiig through expres
sions of dpinion on this subject, since se
ous charges of neglect and of groqs omis
siots of duty have been preferred againust
the chief officers of the Regiment.
It has been seriously urged in the pub.
lic journals, for instance, that the fund ap.
propriated by the State Legislature to
meet the swants of the Regiment, was
squandered, or injudiciously applied: and
- that, in consegnence, the soldiers suffered
through a lack of clothing, &c. We con
trovert both the premises and conclusion of
this argumen. - We dony that the fund
was wrongfully appropriated or squander
ed. And if it had been, we deny that the
regiment would have suffered for clothing
in consequence. As to the use made of the
fund, we ddet.m it unnecessary to add any
thing to the very satisfactory report made
last spring by an intelligent committee;
appointed for the purpose, and which, we
believe, was published in most of the .pa
pers throughout the State. Indeed the
high character of the gentleman, who had
charge of the Fund, wou'd fully negative
all presamptions of unfairness in its distri
bution. That- every degree of diligence
was oerted by those having control of the
matter to procure the Uniforins. intended
to be purchased by the fund, no one ac
qualmted whh the facts in the case, will for
a moment question. Against the casual
ies of the sea, there is, we judge, no hu
mai safeguard; -and.the aggressions or a'n
enemy are not alwadysto-be avoided. The l
asinestaftlhe onesn'delayed t ie uniforms .

* eaebm soldier received in Clharleston fromt
.the government, between t wenty andibmir- ~
ty dbllars for clothing 'and transportation *
money. Each company. moreover, had
a'BDistric't fund (some companies as much ,P
as two thousattd dollars)? -most of which,
to our knowledge, was apjij'opriastedl to the
purchase of clothing. More than this even:
a Sutller was attached to the regiment, weil
supplied with every article of clothing,. ~
necessary for the comfort of the soldier; ~
and he generously extended the most un
limited credit. With all these resottrces,.
what hindered the troops fronm being wecll ~
clad? And were they not? Let facts-ar
swer. When the regiment left Vera Cruz- <
for the interior of the country. so bnturttiful
was its supp~ly in clothittg, the soldiers were
comtpelled to leave much behtittd, which
they were unable to carry. Boxes or gotod,
substantial clothes, belonging topiae
-of the regiment, may now be found n the I,
*ware-houses at Vera Cruz.. Matty, it is r
tue, laid' aside their win:er gartmeuis, atnd
purchased of the Sutler their sumtmer p
clothing;. but they did it against thte earn--I
es-t-entreaties of their officers anti frietnds.
:?Y Another reason urged, for the mnortali- 0
tyoi the Regiment, is, the physic~al inabhil- t
ity of many of the soldiers at the tiino of n
-entering the service, to undergo the severi- e'
ties and' hardships of te campaign.- 0
VWhile stationed at Puebla, a co'mmtitteu of si
'Tearned Doctors was appoited to inves- ce
Stigate the causes of the' great loss ttf life ~
- in the regiment. After several davs of en-.
-.quiry and- consultation, they handed in a (
- repott to the Surgeon G.eneral, in which 0
- .they stated'as~ a-chief cause, mshe reasone
here assigned. . From *hat- source these di
learned sons- of Ese'ulapius~ drew their-in- e
formation on this point, 'we are unable to Ii
divine. The sibpposed fact, however, ex-A
- ~cited surprise and astonishment among the P~
- officers of the regitment, antd the Colonel,d
upon advisement with thte commtanders of t
'comtpanies,derermined to learn the truth of ~
- the matter. H~e accordingly instituted an
inquiry, and found thte conclusions of the
commiitt'( to be altogethter erroneous inh
point of ;uet. So far from the weak antI

the remark.of every one who saw them;
The, army officers Lhemselres, who mus- s
tered the regiment into service were.struck i
with the stalwart appearance of the men, <
nd more than once wore heard to say, I
LhCy never had seen a corps of more able- I
bodied looking men enter into the military
;ervice. If he same remark was made re- t
peatedly by officers and men during the t
.ampaign. where a favorable opportuni- c
.y was offered of comparing the soldiers of i
hje regiment with those of other corps. 5
We believe we are able to account, in a '
iatisfuctory manner, for the distressing <
'nortality in the regiment, witho-ut recur- r
*ence to statements so out of-the-way and
inusual. We will pass over,- in proceed- c
ng to this, tho exposure atid dissipation to (
wrhich the soldiers were subjected during t
their stay near Charleston, though we are t
mntisfied from the excess of liese, many t
.onstitutions were gradually undermined t
md eventually ruined. The first chief t
:ause of the unustal number of deaths was r
he existence. of the mumps and mtasles r
imong the soldiers from the time they
-eached Mobile (about Ist January) tip to a
he capitulation of Vera Cruz (about 1st s
April, IS.17), During this period these (
liseases went through the whole regiment, c
tnd the inclemency of the weather, but
noro especially the hardships encountered
mn the voyage across the Gulph, renderod it
hom unusually severe. Who that was on t
oard the transport vessels in their pas- s
age from Mobile to the Idfe of Lohos anti g
lera Cruz, can ever forget the scenes of s
iardship and suffering ie there witnessed! tJ
Phey are beyond the powers of description.

ay around the sand hills of Vera Cruz
luring the siege of the city, exposed to the
eavy 'night dews and northers, these dii- a
ases made dreadful inroads upon their d
nanly frames. Some noble fellows were a
aid in :he sod. Scarcely recovered from b
he ravages thus committed in its ranks, e]
he regiment was hurriedly pushed off on s,
in expedition to Alvarado-a march as
evero in its hardships. as it was fruitless
a its consequences. This expedition may I
e regarded as another chief cause of the a
reatr -nrality in the regiment. Though ;c

The11 effects of this march were soon felt
frer the return of the regiment- to Vera ~

y; and in a few days, whent the line of -
iarch was taken fair the interior, morea
ian a hundred were thrown into the hos
ital. Alas! few of them ever escapedl t
-em its dismal walls!
Arrived at Jala'ppa, the baleful effects e
