LATEsT FROM OUR ARMY IN MEXICO.
A letter dated Camnargo,.. October 22 to
to the editors of the N. O.: Times, contains
the following paragraphs:
- "Before mly departure, the account of
the departure of Gen. Ampudia from Satil.
Ia with the army was fully confirmed. le
proposed to lortify that town and make an
other stand; therefore lie called on the ciL
izens to assist him. They held a meeting
and the-answer to .his call was Monterey
was a town naturally easier of defence
than Satillo, that it was fortified, and lie
had been driven out of it, therefore they
would not expose their families and prop
erty to certain injury and danger. The
General then left, taking the road towards
San Luis Potosi.
. "I have this moniei t seen a letter from
Salinas, dated 18th inst., in which the wri
ter states-"I heard last night that Santa
A.nna .was at San Luis Potosi, with 30,000
nien, artillery and infantry. lie had sent
his cavalry near Monterey, in the moun
itu, to a place callejl Labradores' where

and that part of the Etory is but the cx.
tension of a report' current at the latter
place ten days before the time mentioned.
As to the killing of the Texans near Lam-.
pasos, it~ is anot improbable. The troops ,
from thet State were disbanded at Monte
rey, and a number set off on the road by
Salinas, Lampasos, etc., to Loredo on the t
Rio Grande. They were without provi- i
sions for. iliemselves, or food' for their ,
horses, a certain sum being allowed for
each day's expences. Their organizat ion
was broken up, andthey went ofT in
parties, many wvithiout oilher arms than pis
tol. and knives. It is very probable they ra
levied contributions on the people, and in r
that way got inta difliculty. At first,all
