Gen. Worth-Concentration of Troops

Saidta; Anna.
The steamer Virginia, Capt. Srmith, ar
* ~rived-last'evening from Tam pico, via Bra
zos Santiago, havirng .left -the Brazos on
the 27th uIt. The brig Empresarlo, Capt.
Collins, which sailed from Tampico on. the
26th. also. arrived'fflast night. By these
vessels we have rlceeved- letters from Mr.
Lumsden, aut Tam pico, some of which we
give below. They contain all thei intelli
gence brought from Tampico. and cleai'np
some points iAi the accounts )ireviously re
ceivedl which a ppeared obscure.
We have conversed with a genile'manr
who itame p~ssenger in tihe Virginia from
* liBrazos, and who is direct fromeNon terey.
Hie hask'indly furnished us wvith the foillow
ing information, which is highly idiiportant,
if: there be no error in the accounts. ..They
were fully-eigdiited ait the Brazos, and are
Rtobert Mills, .who arrived last last evening
from that )ort.'
An express from Gen. Worth, at Saltil.
lo, arrived at Monterey on Wednesday, thet
16th of December. [t brought the news
that Gen. WVorth hadl 'learned through hits
spies that Santa Anoa was within three
days' match of 8altillo,.at the head of an
army of twventy or thuirty thousand men.
The expt ess bore a call upon Gen.'Taylor
for rein p~rcements. Gep. Tavlor and his
staff had'feft'Mopntsrey on thie 15th ult,
the day before the ex'press arrived-for
Victoria, to join his command, which ivas
two day's march in advance of him.
Gen. Butler, in command at Monterey,
immediately sent off despatchme;.t, .Gen.
Marshall, at Camargo, abd to Ge'n. Patter
son, at Matamoras, to send forward with
~ont delaysil tihe troops' they could spare
trom their commands.
Gen. Patterson had left Malamoras only,
the day before th.*news reachied that place.
It wvas at once forwarded to him, and upon
learning its purport our inform'ant states
that .he immediately started on his return'
with the view to- proceedi to Monterev.
It was reprted at Tampico on the 25th,
as will be seeni from the postcript to Mr.
Lumsden's last letter, that a portion -of
Gen. Patterson's command had entered
Victoria, but it is not mentioned that tihe
General hiinself hadl arrived, so that we
cannot judge how. far the news from the
two soWxces may conlict.
'The expregR reportedl at Matamoras that
the road fronm Mosgerey to Camargo was

Santa Anna's advance, a'd it is probable
tit 8anta TAnon is will' i'n former-of the

place *ould'cttioff commiunidation be
tween .Gen Woolscolumn and the forces
immediasely under thet enmmanud of Gen.
Taylor. Gen. Wool's camp ,at Parras is
westand a fewv poits north of Saltillo, 115.
mile distant San Luis Potoui is almost
directly iouth oltillo, thfie kreat road
from San LusilaPtu o Saltillo passing a
short distancei est of General Wool's
canp: If Santa Anna took this road, Gen
eral' W1ool tvdultf be apprised of' the ad
vsaned of the enemy in aufficient time- to
break up his camp apd joinGeneral Woith
at Saltillo; but there is .a rod marked on
the maps, from Zacatecas to Saltillo direct,
which is probably he r'oad prferred by
the Mexican chif aid should ihe succeed
in realilig Sdi'll~'before Gen.. Wofilh
codd be'wcel rein oerced, it is possible th.
placi may haeto- be evacuated, a no force
cfcokequence aoalil be; epared from the
garrison at Ma utercy. .The brigades of
Gneile0iuitil an i Briggsa left Monte
re fir Victeriaon the 13th, and, therefore,
hadt begj foai days on .the mnarch be fore the
expressarrived at lonterey, and no con
siderable force was stationed at agny of the
points betweeno ointerey end this Rio
orande By the last advie, two. regi
meats had-been prdered from Camargo to
jten Gen. Wool, but they could, a the time
a r Anna', movement became known,
waee scarcely reachein Saltillo. 1
Notwithstandhng this .aparently. inau
spicious posturepf flairs, we do not in
f ulge any lielf- apprehaesiops. The-ut
most confidence is to be placed both in the
watehiuless and skill pf the accomplished.
oIcers wvho command, arnd we have io
question they woul be able to anticipate
the movements of the enemy in time. to
prepare pfoperly for.-his. receptioii. As
the report of Santa Anna's advaneereach
ed Gen. Wool's camip so early, ithe aot
impossibile thye ratter may have effected a
junction (vith.Gen. \Yorth, in which case
we should count both to be safe, whatever
forco' the.M exican maight number. Should
the companies en route from Cumnargo have
reachecd Saltillo, the force of Gen. Worth
would be increased to 2,400; aid at the
wvorst we believe lie wvould be able to htoldl
out till lhe could be further strengthened.!
We shall lookfor the pext accounts, there
fore, with 'lnterest, but not with fear of
any ser-ious disaster4
