The city is full of rumors again to-day, all of
which I will try and throw into s un.? kind of shape,
although I cannot be answerable for one of them.
In the first place, it is said that Gen. Taylor has ar-
rived before San Luis Potosi. Thev do not assert that
he ha taken the city, but simply that he has arrived in
the neighborhood and close bv. Again, it is conti-
detltly asserted, thai the Mexican intend leaving the;
road entirely open from this to I'uebla, but at that j
city they intend making a stand and entombing them-1
selves beneath Us rums before General Scott shall
enter it. 1 hey talk SO much about burying them
selves beneath their ruined dwellings, and i so little
ie that way, that one can place no confidence in , living at the ( 'asm ' Uiligencims, or Ceneral Stage

push on towards the city of Mexico, and to a certain
