Washington, June 24, 1847.
The lateet nmn from Mnieo imlk?li? P***'
Neither BuU Ann* nor Ik* Government of Mexico
ran ma* toy mora formidable resistance to the on
ward march of our army. The capital of the Re
pubUc yields, and no doubt Gen. Scott and hi* army
by 'h" l'""1 occupy the Halla of lb? Montezuma*!
Amumin( thia to be the caae, what ia the next
atop to be taken 1 To eat up a cora-*tock govern^
and frame a treaty with it, giving ua the R i
Grande for a boundary aa far up M Paaao del Rio
tiyi thence arross to tba Pacific, leaving ua New
Mexico and California; and aleo aecuring to ua the
tight of way for a ahip canal, or railroad, or other
acroee the iathmua of Tehuantepec,
eo aa to the two oceans. For these conaider
on the part of Mexico, yielded by the rorn
etock government aforaaaid, the Government of the
United Stalee to ask nothing further of Mexico in
the matter of defraying the expenaea of tho war, and
to beep for ? terra of years, or months, aa the caae
may be, an army in Mexico aufficient to protect the
cornetock government aforaaaid in the adminiatration
of the affair* of ita ahorn republic! In fine, the
Mexican nation to become a dependency of the U.
Sutee?we to protect her, and ahe to be under our
supervision and control!
The Mr1**"* muet aubmit to thia, for they can
do nothing else.
The trouble, "p*"" and botheration which wilt
enure to the United Statea in consequence of thia
etupeadoua undertaking, will be very greet. But
whether the grant movement will be of advantage or
disadvantage to the permanency and proeperity of
our country, and to the cauae of rapublicani m, ia
mora than can be predicted with any degree of ac
curacy. Time alone will determine.
The laieat newa from Vera Crux ia unfavorable.
The aeflwVc ie pravaling there to a conaiderable
extent, carrying off our troope at ? rapid rate. The
guerillas too are at work, attacking our trains of
supplif and money, >t'll'"g our men in round num>
hen, cutting off all communication with the army
under General Scott, end absolutely going into
Vera Crux, and stealing Urge numbeia of the
horaee of our troops there!
They have made a successful attack upon
one of our specie and provision trains, which
was very long, destroying forty or fifty of our
wagons, Willing some thirty of our men, and i
carrying off a goodly number of our pack- j
mules. They have stolen some sixty horses in
Vent Crua.
There ia nothing further from General Scott,
all communication having been cut ofl for the
tjnif being, by the Guerrillas. General Cad
waltader had gone up from Vera Ctuz to join
the command of General Scott, and it was
thought would cut a communication through, ,
which, of course, the Guerrillas wolud soon ,
break up again! i
While these things are going on in Mexico,
and news is every hour expected that General
Scon and Mr. Tristhave brought the Meiican
Government to terms of some kind or other,
Mr. President Polk and his kitchen Cabinet are
off popularity hunting to the North!
Mr. Polk has not, by any means, given up
his hopes of forcing his nomination for a re-elec-1
tion upon the Locofoco party. He has taken j
exactly the proper men along with him, to se
cure the right kind of delegates to the Balti |
more Convention from New Hampshire,
Maine, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island. Let
Tennessee, in her forthcoming election, declare
in favor of Locofocoism, and then consider
Mr. Polk's nomination for re-election a? certain.
But not otherwise, perhaps!
Battle of El Poio. While CoL Doniphan's co
lumn, aaya the New Orleans Picayune, was on its
march from Chihuahua to SaltilU, a small advance
party under Captain Reid of about thirty rank and
file, Arrived at El Paso, (twenty-five miles above
Parraa) very early on the morning of the 13th of
May. About 9, a. m., a party of Indians were seen
emerging from a gap of the mountains, distant about
five and rr>,tr'r>g direct for the rantho. Our
troope want out at full gallop nearly half a mile to
meet them. When within thirty or forty etepe of
other, the Indiana discharged a few arrows,;
when the Americana fired their entire volley at them.
Immediately the Indiana raised the yell and rushed
in on them, discharging their arrowe with astonish
ing rapidity. Our men were forced to retieat about
100 yards to load, when they, in their turn charged
the enemy and forced them to retreat. Thus altar,
natdy did they charge, keeping op the contest Car
two hours with much spirit, our troops gaining inch
by '?"'h the ground by dint of hard fighting, while
the Indiana held it with much tenacity, and yielding
it only with their livee. The Indiana numbered be
tween fifty and aixty, and their euperior horseman
ship gave them much advantage, notwithstanding
which they were forced to foil back before the noble
daring af Capt. Reid and hie little band.
Capt. Raid, who was ably assisted by Lieuta.
Gordon, S pro ale, and Winston, was the only Ame
rican wounded. He had the satisfaction of driving
the Indians entirely off the ground, carrying with
them all their wounded and some dead, yet leaving
fifteen on the field, Nine Mexican prisoners were
taken from them and reetored to liberty, and about
1000 head of horses and mules, which, aa far as prac
ticable, were returned to the Mexicans, from whom
they had been taken.
Q9>lt is said that Tom Thumb received in
? Washington, during the three days he showed
himself here, $5000. To show the faUacy ol
this, let it be remembered that his price ol
admission was 25 cents, so that to take in
$5000 he must have seen 20,000 people. If b<
aaw 1000?we speak from personal knowledge
it exceeds our calculation.

Important Political History.
JACKSON, CRAWFORD, AND
CALHOUN.
The reflection cut ia the General Order .after
the battle of the Horse Shoe, on the conduct of
the 88th regimeut, had imparted to the comman
ders, Williams and Benton, a deadly hostility
to Gen. Jackson. The Hero of New Orleans,
howevfi, was too deeply seated in the affec
tions of the People to be attacked directly, with
success. As in the work of assassination, some
bye or concealed path had to be selected for
| the contemplated assault. Jackson, ot warm
temperament, was strongly attached to his
friends; and his life shows with what pertina
city he sustained even those who never merited
his confidence, under the mistaken opinion
that they were true to bim. Next, it not su
perior to his devotion to his friends, was his
sensitiveness to the honor of himaelf, and
those gallant spiiits who had carried him tri
umphantly through the Creek war. To assail
either his friends or his volunteers, was a per
sonal blow at him ; and Williams and Benton,
both well understood the supposed weak or as
sailable points of the man they would strike at.
Lieut. Houston was exempt from the General
Order. His squad did not falter, but was re
ported to have behaved well, aud he himself
waa wounded-in the conflict. Relieved at the
dose of the war, he obtained a sub-agency in
the Cherokee Nation. From this place, thro'
the influence of Williams I then a Senator in
CongressJ and Benton, he was dismissed. It
was at this period that the writer became ac
quainted with Houston, a young man of erect
form, prepossesiog appearance,and in the Cher
okee costume. He narrated his story of dismis.
sal, and of Williams' and Benton's assault od
him as the favored friend of Jackson.
The General, as was to be expected, was
moved, and for the first time, the writer was
introduced to the character of Benton, under
epithets which his present friend, Gen. Hous
ton, may recall, but which cannot with propri
ety be here repeated. Politicians, however,
have an easy mode of reconciling ancient feuds.
We will watch the sequel. Next to Houston's
discharge from place, because he had incurred
Williams' and Benton's displeasure, as Jack
ton's friend, was a bill introduced and passed
in Congress, through the influence ot Senator
Williams, appropriating $25,000 to remuner
ate the Cherokees for depredations alleged to
have been committed by Jackson's Army.?
Mr. Crawford was then Secretary of War, and
the duty of executing this act devolved on his
office. If a firebrand had been cast into a mag
azine, the explosion could not have been more
sudden and terrific, than was Jackson's excite
ment on the annunciation of this fact. Know'
ing the political relations of Williams, Benton
and Crawtord at that time, and deeply sensible
to the bitter personal feelings of the two for
mer towards him, Jackson too readily yielded
to the impulse that Crawford had been made
an instrument in the hands of Williams and
Benton, to cast odium on himself and his com
mand in the Creek war. A correspondence
was opened, which, in the temper and spirit
displayed on the part of Gen. Jackson, was
little calculated either to extort explanation
from Mr. Crawlord, or to reconcile him to what
he must have considered an unprovoked as
sault. He was only the administrative officer,
not the legislative, of the offensive act; but Jack
son visited on him. with marked severity, what
was only merited by others. This is the head
and foot, the origin and beginning, of the Jack
son and Crawford feud, which had no little in
fluence on the political movements of the day,
but which Benton and other allies, after being
whipped into subserviency to General Jackson,
had the art to transfer to Mr. Calhoun, thus
falsely impressing upon the democracy of this
country, that Jackson's unfavorable leelings to
wards Mr. Crawford were at the instigation ol
Mr. Calhoun. The latter was at this period a
member of the same Cabinet, under the Presi
dency of Mr. Monroe, aud in his then intimate
relations with Mr. Crawford, was known to
have warmly reproved the injustice, in this
case, of Jackson to Mr. Crawford. This lact
is not founded on vague report, but on actual
knowledge; and the narrator, with all his strong
preferences for the General, has never disguised
the opinion, that Jackson was involved in this
controversy under the impulse of a too sensi
tive and excitable temperament. The unfortu
nate feud however had its influence on the times,
and for the truth of History reference alone is
now made to it. Though Jackson's hostility
to Crawford would seem to have originated in
the bill to indemnify the Cherokee Indians for
depredations committed on them, there were
other causes, connected with the election of
Mr. Monroe, and the caucus influence, which j
was used to defeat him, which had prejudiced
General Jackson against Mr. Crawford, and
made him the more readily yield afterwards to
the impulses which the indemnity bill had pro
duced. This early attempt, through a caucus,
to defeat or mislead the public will, claims the
next consideration of JACKSON.
Nicholas Davis, Esq., in compliance with
the wishes of the Whigs of Alabama, has an
nounced himself a candidate for the Guberna
torial chair of that State. Two other candidates
are in the field?Reuben Chapman, the nomi
1 nee of the Locofoco Caucus, and Joshua L.
? Martin, the present Governor, who, being ruled
? off the track by the caucus, has taken the field
? on his own hook. It is believed that Davis will
be elected.
L 1
Human JYature Diagrot ed.?We find the fol
lowing in the New Orleans Bulletin of the 1 lib
instant:
"William Caseraan, charged with baying
cruelly beaten bis mother, aged 85, and trom
the effects of which she died oa Thursday, was
remanded for further examination. It appeared
from the evidence given, that he had heaien
he* with a broomstick?had been seen choaking
her on the floor?had kept her in the garret tor
several days, and would not allow any person
to take her nourishment, not even water. He
was frequently heard to say that she had lived
too long, and it was time for her to die, and
that she used to eat too much. She was fre
quently seen by neighbors to fall from the
effects of weakness, supposed to have been
caused by w*nt of food, arid was found last
week, by the Rev. Mr. Case, lying on a piece
of bagging in the garret, with her head severely
bruised."
Aiken, S. C., June 18, 1847.
" We regret to inform you that the steam
saw-mill, owned by Mr. E. Durber, and situa
ted about two miles from Aiken, was, with its
contents, entirely destroyed by fire on the night
of the 16th instant. His loss is about $6,000."
Da. Fitch's Lectures.?We have receiv
ed from Adams' periodical establishment?
where, by the by, all the new publications are
on 9ale?Or. Samue! Sheldon Fitch's Six Lec
tures on the Uses of the Lungs, and the Cure
of Consumption, Asthma and Heart Diseases,
a well printed duodecimo, from the press of H.
Carlisle, New York. A more admirable trea
tise upon these subjects is not to be found in
any laLguage.v Indeed, it abounds in new
thoughts and true ones. The lecturer is mas
ter of his subject, has investigated it with the
care which is ever the attribute of genius. In
style he is not as finished as might be, but that
is of little importance iu a matter so deeply af
fecting us. The discovery of Dr. Fitch is of
the highest value. It teaches what the world,
with all ite wisdom, never knew before. It
teaches us that the lungs give to the human
machine its power of action; that this power
exists in the atmospheric air; that the lungs
are the medium by which and through which
the principle which gives the human machine
its living power is conveyed to it. This teach
ing being true, the cure of diseases of the
lungs follows as a necessary consequence.
And Dr. Fitch's theory is fortified by practical
results. Every father, every mother, every
man and woman, should go at once and buy
this book. It will enable any consumptive pa
tient to cure his or her malady, and instruct
parents how to save their children from this
scourge ot life.
A Democratic paper says that 500 copies of
Corwin's speech were found in Santa Anna's
baggage, captured at Cerro Qordo. We should
like to know how Santa Anna got into Mexico,
to read them ?
