Capture and death of a Mexican Fanatic.?'While
at Camargo that gallant Texian
officer, CoK Cook, first heard of the inhutnan
massofcre near Ceralvo. He started
\in immediate pursuit of the murderers to
rain j down retributive justice upon their
% heads for their dastardly conduct. He sucs
novAoA ! ~r tt 1- -n?
r i lid U|1U <J1 un eu S Oillcersy.whose;
fanaticism no doubt instigated
) ^ the atrocities too revolting to decency and
* hiimanity to be described. He was id1
ehtified.a^ .tha murderer of Burns,' and was
\ seen toMangle niost' horribly, \Vith his own
f ?,hands, the dead bodies of the American teamJ
sters. Moved by the spirit of a demon, he attempted,
and would have murdered the
-^grief-distracted daughter of the unfortunate
/^SurnS;but for'the interference Of n' brother
*tficer in the same division. After he was
JLken and bound by thongs around his
Ivrists, he sprung, seized a pistol which Col.
ICook had laid down, and fired at, and
[wounded him in the knee. Enraged;for
\f an instant he drew his sword, but his anger
/ melted away at the sight of the cords which |
/ conSaed his arms, and he desisted from his j
hasty purpose. He was then placed in a ;
wagon, with a sick soldier, guarded by a !
file of men, and was thus conveyed until
they reached the spot where the massacre
had taken place. A halt was ordered until
the rites of burial could be performed. One
of the company, who had lost a brother in
the fight, stole, with his rifle, unperceived, ;
to the distance of one hundred and fifty i
yards from the wagon, where he secreted
himself behind a bush and waited until his
comrades left an open space between him
and the butcherer of his brother, when he
fired, and drove a ball through his bosom.
The desperate man feeling that the thread
i_;_t. i i.!? - - it
wuicu uouiia mm 10 me was cut, snatched ;
the gun of the sick soldier and made an al- j
most superhuman effort to shoot one of the j
guards, which he came within a hair's I
breadth of accomplishing.
Vera Cruz and the Vomito.?The
Washington correspondent of the New
York Herald says:
Some of the papers are alarming them- j
selves about the health of our troops who
willbeleltt^garrison VeraCruz. Theappre- I
hession that they will be carried off by the i
vomito is gratuitous, as it is not intended to
garrison VeraCruz. The garrison will be ,
in the Castle of San Juan de Ulloa, which
is healthy, and which can always command
the city. The head-quarters will be
atJalapa. Gen. Worth will probably take
and occupy Cordova, for the purpose of
guarding the Southern road from Puebla, |
and a detachment will defend the Natioal j
Bridge across the river Antigua, over which .
passes the road from Vera Cruz to Jalapa. I
Jalapa and Cordova are both healthy. If
Cordova be too much exposed, Orizaba,
twelve or fifteen miles further, might be
occupied, from this point, after the troops
shall be refreshed, Gen. Worth, if it be
deemed ad\isable, might conduct his operations
against Puebla, while the commanding
General might proceed to the reduction
of Pejrote. At the former place the forces
might be concentrated, arid so proceed to
the capital, where they will be joined by
Qen. Taylor's division from San Luis Potosi.
It will be seen that the approaches of j
Vam ClrilT Vif?incr thno nrnai-rlorl ??..J I

guns of the Castle constantly poi nting into
it, no garrison will be required. The
squadron will be relieved from the tiresome
duty of keeping guard over the Castle,
and will have leisure to operate on other
parts of the coast. It will thus escape all
hazard of the plague. The army will also
b$ removed from its influence. . These arrangements
exhibit foresight nnd managezi
jnegt worthy the highest praise. i

Write that Thought.?"Many valuable
thoughts have passed through the minds
of men when alone, which could not be called
tnto service when needed, and thus lost

carry a pencil and a little book constantly

of the thought of more than ordinary

under any other circumstances. President
Dwight. recommended this practice to his
students, and little as he sfiemed to stand in
need of sound thoughts on almost any sub:
ject, he has often been seen writing upon
a little tablet on a rock or a log by the
road-side, and even to stop his horse and
arrest a -passing thought by writing on the
pommel of his saddle,?it was one of the
secret springs that supplied the fountain of
his giat intellect, and is a practice which
has proved its utility in thousands of
instances. Young man! preserve that
