venerable old State of Maryland shews me lhal ?.<
Ihe Whiles are up and doing. The nominees at ??'
the laie Stale Convention for the House ol ]"
Delegates ate active and energetic, and there
is said to bo much talent in the Delegation oh
from this-county and the Howard District.? ,n
And it is generally believed that the Whigs mt
Will triumphantly carry ali bclbre I hem. enIt
ia with great pleasure lhal we inform you
that the very best feeling exist here in lavor ol
Oen. Taylor for the next Presidency. The tre
recent visit of Hon. H. Clay in this Stale bus
had a most excellent tendency; and the mover- At

Taylor hii warmest support, and that he will 9n,

The Whigs have brought out Mr. Stewart as sa
the Congressional candidate opposed to Titos. ha
W. Ligon, esq , late member in the last Con- p|,
gress. Mr. Stewart is said to be a gentleman of r0
great worth, will make an independent and ex
celleut member of Congress, and there is little .
or no doubt of his election. [Our correspondent

I have, a short lime since, taken a ramble es
through the busy and enterprising village ol n"
Ellicott's Mills ; it would be a most excellent
thing if some of your citizens who are enter- 1111
taining some notion of erecting a cotton factory
in your city, should visit this place to witness w
the industry and thrift universally prevailing, f0i
the rapid advance of property, fcc. The me- be
phanics of this place are. all thriving?their
steady and industrious habits shew them to be en
the bone and sinew of every community. The
numerous coiton factories and machine shops,

of your citv must be brought to bear on this

The Union recently came down upon Gov. ^
Bebb, of Ohio, with.an avalnntheof astonishment
and hard words, because the Governor
would not furnish the uew regiment at Co? q
lumbus, before he had been officially notified
that the Government had called for it. The j(
Governor only obeyed the laws of his country.
The Department, however, violated those laws,
by turning round aud furnishh.g supplies to w
the jpon before they were mustered into service.

The Charleston Me'rcury thinks it is high
time, that there should be a press nt Washington,
which should feel itself at liberty to sp-ak 'll
in defence of the South. The A'alioiuil Whig , e
feels itself not only at liberty to do so, hut does
so, yet while it does so, it is equally at liberty ,.j
to speak in defence of the North, and does so
too. "No pent up Utica confines'?our pen. ju

The most important news hy this arrival I
toncerus the ruovements of Gen. Scon. There j ln
iiad been various rumors o i the subject in i 0{
Vera Cruz, many of which our correspondent re
(lieu to be unfounded, hut he writes us on
he afternoon of Saturday, the yisi instant, oh
what he considers "the best authority," that
;he vanguard ol General Scott's army was at s'
Ayotla on Friday, the 13th instant, and np in ca
hut dale hud not 'ired a gun. This news reach- ru
-d Vera Cruz by a gentleman who lelt Ayotla bt

The expedition which left Vera Cruz about to
lie lollt instant to teinlorce Major Lilly's ca
'oinuiand, was composed of Captain Wells's tit
company ol die |i>ib infantry, Captain Mitde's p
company of lite I4lh infantry, and Capt. Fairchild's
company o! Louisiana rangers, all under
command of Captain Wells. They returned '
10 Vera Cruz on the I7tlt, after having pro I
needed as far as the National Bridge, white
they expected to overtake Major Lally's com ill
ninnil. Major Lally, however, had gone on, Ik
ind by subsequent advices at Vera Cruz it is
known that be bad carried up bis train in safety 8li
beyond Jalapa. ()[
'I be command of Captain Wells were com .
pelled to fight their wav to the bridge ; and they ,f
made the attempt to pass it, but found all the w
heights occupied by the guerriilas, who opened M
I heavy tire upon them, killing nearly all the co
mules and forcing the whole party to retire. a[
They left the whole of their wagons, save only
arte, in the possession of the enemy. All the to
vimrutri nf the ndieprs and knaosackB of the
men, which were in Hip wagons, tell into the
hands of the Mexicans, and little else brides ('
[he mail was saved. The loss of men in this
(flair has been five or six killed and two or of
lliree wounded, and several men have subse- w
ijuenily died from fatigue aud exposure on the w
inarch. v(,
About eight miles this side of the bridge, jj
Captain Wells, on his advance, detached 12 .
dragoons, accompanied by L)r. Cooper, with J
directions to go forward cautiously, and, if 8e
lltey found it prudent to report to Maj. Lally ; 'al
hut if they encountered any obstacle, to return mi
ind report the fact at once. Nothing hassiuce tei
heen heard of this party, and it is supposed co
ihe whole have fallen into the hands of the U)
Mexicans. The twelve dragoons we suppose
lo lie a portion of Faitchild's company. Or. ','F
Cooper was the surgeon who went up with ""
ihe train. f?
Captain Wells had five successive engage sjh
items with the epemy before the final affair in

piece of artillery engaged, Irotp tyliich they (h

Maj. Lally on going up with lite train is said
to have had a sharp skirmish with tne guertl lnj
las at Cerro Gordo, and to haye expected ano
iber tirnsli with tliem at I.a Hnvu. No accounts w
of these affairs have been received. Inn our la- ''i
test letters say that tlrore is no doubt of the w
safely of the train. No ui-ws bad lieeu heard la
at Vera Cruz of Capt. D'-sancon's company I"
for a fortnight. It was out 011 a scout when '?
news reached there that Major furlly requited
reinforcements, ami it is hv many supposed v'
that the eompaov fed in with the train, and, 'a
crossing the National Bridge, continued up di

test letters.
In regard to Qen. Scott's march, there were ca
rumors at Vera Cruz that he had .net the ene ^
my ami repulsed them at' r a sharp engage 01
menl, in which he lust b(H) men. This the p,
Mexicans regurcli d as a victory on their pari, q,

you what 1 think mo-t probable, and
hich is regarded as such by the rellerting I we

jiean intervention, (Anglo Gaille, as they j 1
dl it,) uud to terminate at once the dilficitl- i
;a between Mexico and the United Stairs.: '
is also stated that afterwards San'.n Amu ?

,'ople that the "benefactor of his couutiy;"

is done nothing else but cheat thetn, and I
at his intention has ulways been to sacri- I
;e his country to his private interests. I an<

ime the power, and assisted by his numeris
and influential pariizans, he will estab- ( 1
ih a monarchy in Mexico, and Paredeg
ill be nominated Geneialissimo of the ,

incerning the origin of this monarchy. It I
ipears almost impossible that there should 1
i a coalition between Prance and England, '
place on the Mexican Throne Donna Ma- '
1 Christiana, and the Duke of Monimorot, s
lianznries ) This appears ridiculous, but (
ere are many who believe it. Others are
opinion that the plan is solely French, ,
ith the acquiescence and aid of England,

nt the farther extension of territory by the
nited States, and to prevent all objections
