Ife on board a ship, and I often thought I:
ould live out my life there without being

went sweeping over the deck?and when

for the scenes of " my childhood's home."

becomes very- tiresome. Morning, noon

nothing but a wide waste of waters. To
us, a bird or a fish was a matter of general

and on Monday morning I placed my foot
upon Mexican soil?the land of eternal sunshine
and flowers. .
The Isle of Lobos, the place where we
are now quartered, is situated" on the Mexican
coast between Tampico and Vera
Cruz: about sixty miles from the former,
and one hundred and thirty from the latter.
It is. only one mile in diameter; and previous
to the arrival of the soldiers, it had on
it no inhabitant It is one of the most romantic
spots I have ever seen. A large
portion oif it is still a wilderness covered
with the most beautiful evergreens. The
lime tree, the sweet orange, the banyan and
palmetto, all grow in great luxuriance. I
;?ome fine iemons were found on the trees j
whert the Pennsylvania Regiment first
landed here. I have seen on the same ;
tree' young' lemons and blossoms. The I
banyan tree is quite a curiosity ; its foliage
resembles very much the magnolia of our
own State. The tree does not grow tall,
ijut very large. Its branches shoot downward,
and form each a separate trunk.
Over these trees an evergreen vine is spread,
forming a complete arbor. You can imagine
how perfectly beautiful it must look.
Near four thousand troops are encamped

expected soon. The tents are arranged in
streets running from the beach across the
island. The under growth only is cutout,
the large trees are al! left standing. The
white tent cloths showing through the green
foliage, taken in connection with the surrounding
scenery, gives to the whole place
the appearance of enchantment. In the
harbor and about one mile from the island,
seven large ships are lying at anchor, and
in their midst the United States sloop St.
Mary's swings proudly from her anchor,
commanding by her guns the entile port;
the star spanineu banner floats frnm hpr
fore mast, and the signal is answered from
every ship and from half dozen different
quarters of the Island. Off in the distance
is the appearance of land, and far away in
the back ground the heights of St. Juan are
seen. Morning and evening the signal
gun is heard from a small fortified town on
the shore some eight miles distant. At
night we can see the fires which our enemies
have made to decoy our vessels on
their shore. We have wiihall the mournful
roar of the sea to remind us that we are
within the dominions of old ocean, cut off
from the kindness and attention of our
To-day I went all over our island in
search of novelties. Amongst other things
I found an old well, dug by Com. Moore,
of the Texas Navy, in the year 1837 ; and
close by I found the grave of a young officer
in the same service A'few rude letters
carved upon the bark of a tree mark his
lonely resting place.
I have thus endeavored to give you some
idea of this little fairy spot of creation. I
feel that I have done.it but poor justice ; for
it is lovely beyond any thing that I could
imagine. I have spoken only of its beauties;'-when
I speak of its faults, you will
conclilde in a moment that the defects overbalance
the beautiful. You will be somewhat,surprised
when I tell you that since

against the little town I before mentioned,
(I cannot now remember the long name.)
If this is so we will have quite a nice little
excursion. We are anxibtis for it?we
wish to know what kind of men we are to
fight. A few hundred troops will be quite

?he was taken prisoner by the Mexicans,
and treated with great kindAesS. They
sent him to the Island a few days before
our arrival here. The poor fellow was
buried yesterday. We have also heard
some rumors of peace, and some say we are
not to leave this little Island until we embark
foi our homes. This rumor I think
is entirely groundless, but you know better
as to the truth than we can. We never
see a paper or hear a single item of news.
Our knowledge is confined to the events
which transpire on this little spot of ground.
The Alhambra, the transport conveying
the remaining companies of our Regiment,
came into portyesierday evening. Previous
to her arrival we were very uneasy for fear
she had met with some misfortune. She
sailed from Mobile bay the same morning
that we did. She was out, however, se

they must have had a very rough
time. They are both well and in fine spirits.

Greenwood, S. C. )
Thursday, March 11, 1847. $
The Board cf Trustees of the Greenwood
Male and Female Academies under the
control of the Baptist denomination, in presenting
this their first quarterly report take
great pleasure in expressing their entire
approbation of the performance of the pupils
in each department.
They attended at the Male School, in
A. M., and hn<l an opportunity of witnessing
the exercises of nearly all the classes
in that department, which in the opinion of
the Board were highly creditable both to
the pupils themselves and to their instructor,
Mr. William L Harris-whose character
as a gentleman, and qualifications as a
teacher cannot be questioned. Mr. Harris
has under his charge i.t this time, 22 Students,
and from his earnest desire to advance
his pupils in the various branches of
their respective studies, and render satisfaction
to the patrons of the school, the Board
feel satisfied that those who have placed
their sons under his care will be pleased
with the improvement which they will have
made at the termination of the Scholastic
In the afternoon the Board met at the
Female Seminary, and were highly entertained
with the performances of the young
Ladies. This department is under the
care of Professor R. H. Nicholls and Lady.
The Litterary attainments of this gentleman,
and his long experience in the instruction
of youth in various Seminaries of
learning eminently qualify him for the imnnrlont
Irltrf ? 1 *1
>.. tmck wiimiiiiru iu iiiinj unu ine
performance of his pupils 'urnishes abundant
evidence of the attention which he
devotes to them. The Board feel that it is
due to this gentleman to express their entire
confidence in him, and congratulate
themselves and their friends on their good
fortune in securing the services of so accomplished
a gentleman, so thorough a
Scholar, and so competent an instructor at
this early stage of their Institution. There
are 35 pupils in this department, nearly one
half of whom are receiving instruction on
the Piano Forte from MrSi Nicholls, a Lady
eminently qualified to instruct in that
branch as well as the other important branches
of Female education,
The Board would avail, themselves of
this occasion to inform their friends
throughout the State and the public in general,
that it is rare to meet with an opportunity
so favorable for giving a thorough education
to their sons and daughters as now
offers in the ab6ve named institution*

We have had a change in the Commissary
department here. Lieut. W. H. French,
of the 1st arrillerv. who has "hp^n nr-tinn
Commissary at this depot for the last 8
months, applied to Gen. Scott, the other day,
to be relieved ; he is now attached to Capt.
Toylbr's battery, Co, K, 1st artillery ; jrou
may expect to hear some thing brilliant,
some thing a " leelle" extra of this battery,
for French is a star, and second to no officer
in the army. If the Mexicans don't
kill him the first "pop" he will render a
good account of himself. Capt. William
H. Churchill is now our Commissary,
Capt C. is the some who distinguished
himself at the battle Palo Alto, who gave
the Mexicans "Jesse" with the 18-pounders,
"manned" with oxen. He is a splendid
officer?'tis a pitty to keep him out of the
Liucr irom New Mcxico.
The St. Louis Republican, of the 26th,
contains a letter from Independence, Mo.,
dated February 15th, which gives the latest
intelligence from New Mexico.
Among the items of importance is a full
account confirmatory of the engagement
between Col. Doniphant's regiment and
the Mexicans, about fifty rr.iles above El
Passo del Norte. Col. D. was on his way
to join Gen. Wool, at Chihuahua. When
within about fifty miles of Passo del Norte,
they observed a body of Mexicans approaching'
them with a black flag. Doniphan
halted, and sent out an interpreter to know
what was meant by it. The answer was
a demand for an unconditional surrender.
Col. Doniphan asked fifteen minutes to
think of the matter; and in less than the
time asked formed his men in battle array,

they formed, to squat close 10 the ground,
which they did. The Mexicans fired.?
Doniphan did not return the fire, hoping to
avoid a battle. The Menicans fired again,
which wounded several Americans. Doniphan
thinking it a iittie more serious than
at first, ordered his men to fire, which they
did, with considerable effect. The Mexicans
stood but one fire from our unerring marksmen.
They broke l anks and scattered in
confusion, leaving thirty killed on the field.
Doniphan had about six hundren men with
him at the time, and they report that there
were twelve hundred Mexicans. None of
the Americans were killed?seven were
The priests at Santa Fe had planned an
insurrection, but had been detected, and
twenty of them arrested, ail of whom it was
supposed would be executed.
James Magoffin, an adopted citizen of
Mexico, had been taken by the Mexicans
at Chihuahua, with papers and despatches
from Gen. Wool, on his person. He was
to be tried as a traitor. The American
army had suffered much from typhus fever,
which was sweeping the soldiers off daily.
The winter at Santa Fe had been the
coldest ever experienced there. Nine men
were frozen to death.
It was feared the 120 teamsters who left
Santa Fe for the States, in November, had
all perished, as no intelligence had been
heard of them;
