ed with a heavy Scotch mist, which is not
unusual here, and will vet a blanket or tent
thro' nearly as quick as a regular rain; this
added much to the weight of the tents amid
other baggage; which. with the slippery
state of the road, rendered travelling diffi
cult.
Left Monterey at eight and a half o'clock
A. M. - Gen. Lane, with one regiment of
Indiana Volunteers, had just'arrived from
Camargo. Ite was ordered to return after
the necessary rest, and to station a part of
the road, and at the posts. The 2d Ken
tuckians had left. Great praise is accord
ed to the General for the promptness with
which he repaired to Monterey, and was
not the Commander-in-Chief well satisfie:1
tkat lie leaves that place in perfect securi
ty, he would doubtless have given Lane
the privilege of remaiting.
. Col.Harney was ordered this morning to
S- aremain behind us altogether, and take com.
mand of all the mounted men. After look
ing at the nature of the country in the val
ley ofGaudaloupe, lie has permisaion to
proceed to Saltillo, and if there is any
chance for a fight in that vicinity, he will
get in it-perhaps go to the Salada for it.
Dec. 24th.-We made an unusunly car
lystart this morning from ourencampmen.
14 miles below Munterey. As early as it
was, the "greasers" were about the camp
with their little articles of merchandize and
followed thme army for miles, or until all
they had was disposed oif. These peop)lle
make money out of us every wvay. Thei:
time being of little or no value to them, wvith
two or three dollars wvorth of merchandmeize
they wtill follow~ us for dlays, and when they
are not engaged in disposing of their wares.
wvill ferry sick soliers over the rivers, by
placing them on their own horse, and then
jumping up behind them. Snoe half dloz
en have followed us all the wuay from~ Mon
.terey, and are making (to them) a fortune
at the business-chmarging for each person
thtus ferried, a picayune.
We passed thiroughil and encamped foura
miles this side of the delightful villnge Cat
dareyta ; to all a ppearanees, fair more love
ly thani on the former occasions. It is the~
day b' fore Chmrismas, and ma'my prepare.
ations are being made, for the celebratioun
of the feasta to-marrow. At Cadareyta,
as wvell as at every rancho ibis side of
Monterey, the people mare firmly impressed
with belief that Santa Anna will dine in
Monterey to-morrowv; and wvill laughi at
us if we wiill tell them we did not leave
there to avoid him.
Our camp is on the banks of one of the
numerous mountain streams that run across
our road, and as wve reached it early in the
afternoon, our suppers wecre finshed and!
blankets spread sometime before the day.
-* ~light wvent out. It wvas pleasing to hear
thme remarks of the oflirers and soldiers as
they descanted on the doings of to- morrow
at their different homes, anid as some men
tion wvould be made of the mince pies and
egg-nogs that were being, at tha t momen t,
- handued around in their family circles, a
smacking of lips end a sigh would escape
them; and theni came the humorous promises
that should they live another l2months, the
24th of December should be passed amongst
- their friends and kindred. About half past
sIx o'clock the bells of a ranchita church,
close by us, pealed out the holyday an
nouncement, and as the 5rst tones fell upon
-the camp, there was instant uile~nce, and
* every one wvas left to his owvn reflection. I
can't say that mine wvere of a very serious
nature, but I rnust confesthat-those large
bowls of egg-nog mha~t annually sit upon t he
counter at flewlett's were continually flit
ting befoire my eyes.
Dec. 25th,-Sartedl this nlorning before
day-lighit anid made 25 miles of the journ
-sey, during the last ten of which, the com
pany called the "laggers" had swvelled to
a regiment. The march was too heavy lot
men under any circumstances, and they
will feel it sensIbly to-morrow; and parti
cularly will It tell on the mules and horses.

Dec. 28th."When preparations were
beinig made for a stait this morning, tha ve
horses ahd foier inules were found dead.
Hawing 'nothing to feed them'oi but new
corn, many are afilicted just now with tie
scours,'and in numerous =instances they
die in less than twenty-four hours -of the
sickness.. One thing is peculiatly nnnoy
ing, and that is, the very best A merican
horses are the greatest sutyeters.-The
places of the dead horses were supplied
by reducing other teams, and we were.en
asbled to reach Linares, some 16 miles,
about 1 o'clock. *0* Our visit to Li.
Inares was a perfect windfall to its citizens.
Mules that would not command 810 in the
morning, were sold to the United 8tates at
nlight for as much as $30-and so itis with
every thing we buy from the Mexicans in
all parts of this country. From a loaf of
bread up to a horse, they will. demand
double the amount from an- American that
they d'i from a native, If tihe early part of
our visit to Linares was a source of bene
fit and pleasure to its people* the lattgr
part of it was anything but agreeable tit
them. Gen. Taylor haid learned while at
Monte Miomales, that the Government of
Mexico had $2800 in funds and a quantity
of tobacco and segars depositeai in Linares,
and he omdered one of the Assistant Quar
ter-Masters to demand and receive it in the
namne of the United States, from the Al
calde-construing the ioothing system of
our government in such a manner as to give
him the right of taking public property, if
nthtinig else. But whlenm the call wasmnade
upion the Alcalsie, lhe de-nied thant there was
any)tiing belongitng to tihe governlment in
Linasres. Hie was tld that the Alcaldle of
M..nte Mormies hadl stated that the proper
ty above mentioned wtas there, and that it
must be given up. lHe conftessed then that
such properly lash been there, but sid tin
uflicer o~f thu Mexican army, with a pairty
of soldiers came into town after Capt. Gra
tham' heft it, and tooak it away. Gen. T.'s
or ders then were for the A lale to sobmami
the money by esme mecans, ands haund it
oaver befotre 14 u'c-lock. Afier a great el
of re-monstranice, he wvent out and broughlt
in $1000 of his owvn motney, and the-n or
dlered tihe shocp keepers to parodsuce the re
mainder. This he didi by causing his See

hsandted over, and hsauled off in oneI of our
waegons; but you never sawu longer fac-es
than those wvorni by the mulcted. Tlhis
dlay's manrch suimnmed up 12 miles.
Dec. 25th.-Madie an early start this

which cautsedl us to) travel 15 miles, whenci
we coulid hamve reached the same place by

Between 7 and 8 o'clock, P. M., Capt.
May got in with his dragmeis.fe rtleirts
the loss of 11 inen and their horses,*a n' 7
pack mules. As far as I can gather the
particulars, and they- come rron, Capt.'
Maiy, they are these:--Between i Mete Mo.
rules adti Linares Capt. May. ascertuiniet
that there was a pass in *a 'gorge. of . the
mountainsai, and determined to ascertnain
the nature of it. -Ais commanl coisisted
of Iwu companies of dragoons-;-some 70
or 80 men. On approaching the fiont of
the mount ain, every precautilnAvas used
to guard arainst surfrise. 'k lientesgn
with 12 men acted as ihe rea*-g-artV and
guard of the pack mci'les of. the commaned.
who remained some few hindre'il yards i
the rear, and in this way they progressed
slowly and eurefully, until they found out
the pass, which was so nerrow that it was
with iuch difficulty a single -horse couli
go through it. But May was determined
to traverse it, and make what discoveries
lie could oct the other side. -Dismounting
himself acnd men, ie led his horse' and the
way, and after expdriencing much difficul
ty in getting from rock to rock, the com.
mand ultimately succeeded in .getting
through. On the right hand side of this
pass there is a perpendicular cliff of socme
000 feet, or so high, as some of thie men
say, "that a mian up there looked like a lit
tle boy." On the Feft hand, after 10 or 12
feet perpendicular. there was a gradual
slope to the top, on which ai enemy could
run down, fire a piece, and - then return.
It is represented as being tice most danger.
ous'pass to a daring enemy that is known,
and where a few deltermined men could
stop1 the advance of thousands. After go
ing as far on the other side as was thought
necesaiiry, they turned to come buck, and
the main beidy retraced their steps with the
senie caution observed in effecting the first
passage. But the renrguard were not so
lucky in getting through this time, for it
appeacirs alter ice Lieutenant and Se'rg-an t
geet thireughi, a large boidy ofl men, who sta
tioned.i thiemselves on the perpendcicuilar
side, showered doewnc stuines fromn the top
seo fast and so heavy, that their advance
was coempletelhy cuti off; andl that they were
either killed, taken prisoners, or made their
esecepe to the othteur side.
It seecms that Capt. May was taken by
suerprise, foer he was conitinualty tirgincg vi
