as a sort of an advertisement in a late
number of the Western Expositor. We
think a similar corps would not be out of
place in this latitude. There is nothing,
in our estimation, that so plainly shows s
want of good raining, as to ee a group of
young men completely fill up the aisles at
church as lo prevent all egress, and stare
such females out of countenance as may
attempt to force their way out. If this
vulgar practice is not abated, we hope
some friend will take the matter in hand,
and form a regular gaping corps, that the

Palacio, the leader of the re

brought it about, has been in
La Paz for some time. It is said
that Arista, at the head of se

his way to take chrarge of the

A BRILLIANT CRUISE.
Natal Iktelligbxcc The U. States
sloop of Cyane, commander Du pont, just
arrived from the Pacific, at Norfolk, in a
very short passage of sixty-two days from
Valparaiso, hat had a most active and bril
liant cruise. She sailed from the United
States in August, 1845, and her crew
have been particularly distinguished thro'
out the war; no crew have ever had the
good fortune to perform so much service
in a single cruise. The Cyane was on the
Wejt coast of Mexico when the war broke
out, and tonly left there after the receipt of
the news of peace.
The ship' company participated in the
taking of Monterey, and garrisoning that
town; the first offensive operation on (hat
coast. They were in the tights of Com.
Stockton at the Meia and Rio Gabriel;
they destroyed the gunboats of the enemy
at Guayamas, cut of their shipping in the
Gulf of California, blockaded the ports of
San Bls and Mazatlan, and were a part
of the force of Com. Shubrick when he
took place j and two of her officers, Lis.
Rowan and Selden, had the command, one
of the shore party and the other of the wa
ter party, that surprised rind routed a large
body of the enemy at Uriat.
The ship's company also garrisnned in
part La Paz and San .Tote, Lower Cali
fornia. It was Capt. Dupont, with 10C
of his crew, who so gallantly landed at
San Jose, in the face of nn overwhelming
force of the enemy, and forced his way
two miles through a perfect ambuscade,
and under a constant and heavy fire, to
the town of San Jose, to relieve our gar
rison under the command of Lieut. Hay
wood, who had been 20 days surrounded
by the enemy . and in great distress. Capt.
Du Pont afterwards mounted seventy of
Ins men, under command of Lieut. Sel
den, and pursued the enemy in the inte
rior oi me country, liem. ."-elilen was
successful in entirely breaking up the rn
surgents, bringing back and depositing on
board the shiu their comtnand-in-chief and
twenty of his people as prisoners, h
will uUo be recollected that it was the
boats of the Cyane, under Lieut. Harri
son, that cut out the enemy's brig Condor,
in the port of Guayamas, under the fire of
their musketry ; and also whilst the ship
was blockading Mazatlan, her boats sig
nally defeated the enemy's boats set off to
delend a vessel attempting to run the block
ade, and landed and spiked all the enemy's
cannon at ban litas.
Her crew have been remarkable fur
llieir discipline and good aonduct, acting
as soldiers, both mlantry and mounted
men; and they have been in seven fights
on shore, and their loss has been one offi
