IM DE FENCE OF GEM, TA YLO'R.
The distinguished Capt. Bragg, now Col. Bragg, being in New York city, a dinner was given him at the Astor House by a large number of citizen and stranger?, among whom were many gentlemen of distinclion. Col. Bragg, on being toasted for the brilliant services of bis flying artillery at Buena Vista, made a speech, a briel sketch of whic h we copy from the New York Express of the following day. Col. Bragg has always been a Democrat, and he is claimed as a Democrat still, but like ten of thousands of other Democrats, ho will vole for Gen. Taylor. We invite particular attention to this beautiful epeech. Who ran read It without the deepest and loftiest and most fervent admiration of the character of Gen. Taylor? What De mocrat can read it and not feel thame and indignation at thought of the low and base and ut terly disgraceful calumnies which all the editors and demagogues of his party are daily heap ing upon the character of the most extraordinary man of the age, a man to whom the Ameri can republic is indebted for a mighty and most brilliant portion of her immortal fame and Rlory! Col. Bragg, modestly rising, and in some embarrassment, said, it was well known that he was only a soldier, and that therefore no lining speech could be expected from him in reply. lor whatever merit centletnen chose to aw ard bun, or whatever reputation, if any. he had un deservedly, the wboU of it was due to the gallant General under whom he served, and to the . a -It m? . a soldiers in the service he commanded, nay more, lor me oruuancy ox mat service he was in debted to the training of the lamented Ringgold and Ridgely, from w hose hands he had re ceived the corps, in that full efficiency that enabled it to immortalize itself on the perilous and bloody field of Buena v ista. "To the General-in-Cbief his acknowledgments were especially due. He inspired th whole afmy w ith valor and confidence by his presence, not only at Buena Vista but from the opening of the war on the Rio Grande. It is almost impossible for you, gentlemen, he said, to understand the character of that man as a commander of au army. There is a resolution, a firmness, a determination iu his maauer, iml ici his purposes, that go a great ways in Icv.1 jn men to victory. It was never better illustrated than on the field of t'alo Alto. He told ;Major Brown, when he left him with his small force opposite Ma tu moros, "Maintain your position; I will try to be back, I will be back on the lUih. Expect roe, then, anJ maintain your position." Every body that knew him knew he wonlJ be back, if alive tu come. The army returned to Point Isabel, as you know. On the 6th, ihejr fought at Talo Alio, and, when ni&hi came on, they bivouacked in the open fir Id, and amid the grass, wiih not a tent over them, the Geueral himself wrapped in his blanket, and many, 1 can assure vou,iu not a little doubt ana gloom. Our little army did not feel sure, then, that they could whip three times their number, and tbey the best troops in Mexico. We bad not tried our mettle, or Si h ilipm. Manvan eve did not close that nktit. Ringgold had beeu lairi. A Mmwlr Aav was before'thena. and many, if thearmr went on, were sure to bite th idust But uobodv knew or opuld find out what General Taylor intended to do. There he Jay, wrapped in his blanket, and 6ietJing, except neu uiaiurwu uv umceia afjhiug tor u tiers. Some wer. a m i on to ascertain his intentions. His only answer was, "Tell the inc to sleep. Keep quiet. Sleep is the main thing ueccs&ary." Two or three officers were par ticularly anxious to know whether he intended to gO on ur hold his position. But the only Miisfiiriinn that rtuAA lu mt was "sleen " He diclosM to none ot them his intentions. There was a prevailing opiniou that it was too perilous a inarch to go on. But Gen. Tay lor, towards morning, disturbed br some nersou demanding orders, replied, "allow the men to rest. It is time enough at uiirie.M Then, turning over iu Iii blanket, he said to an officer inear, "My mind is made up, m) mind in made up." Cut nobody knew how his mind was ai;dr up; and yet thry who kuew him, ku-w il his mind was made up u was no use to try to chmge it. "In the morninga c ouncil of war was summoned and there were eleven otilcers present, three only of uhoni advised advance. Mind, 1 cast no censure upon any one. A dtltercnce .of opinion, under such circumstance, might have been expected. But they who knew the jKjwer of the liht artillery, and hud sei n it play that day, bad confidence that it could clear a way fur the army hack to Fort Brown. "OldZuik," tor that is the name we call him, re jdied after the consultation bad brokt-11 up, "tve will advance in fifteen minute?;" and for ward they marched to Ue.sua de lu Talma, the result of which you all know. Old Zack kept Iiis u ord to Miij. Brow u, but alas, I he brave aud lamented Major had received his death wound. "So at Bu ua Vista the pernonal character of Gen. Taylor hail a like influeuce on the army. YVh.-n the War Department deemvd it necvsary, iu order to form a column to invade Mexi co via Verj Cruz, to take his regulars from him, he was sure that Santa Anna would attack Iiiin. "1 am the weak point he often said, "aud I kuow he will attack me." Hut he deter iirined to defend his position, and, iu order the bebt way to defend itto advance. Gen. Santa Anna has taken a hundred, 1 shall ravea thousand. Gen. Taylor, kept well informed of hi .approach of theeu-my by Gen. Wool's scout!, moved on toSallillo, then on to Agua Nueva. It was proposed at one lime to meet the enemy in advance of Agua Nueva, but ascertaining by his Mutineers tliat their position could b.! lunud, he resolved to fall back to Buena Vista us ihe Hi' iii) approached him. Uuena Vista is a military position that any soldier's eye would Srltct fur a defence. To no particular jfrson is the credit of its selection due, for it has been fcaid that Ken a woman picked it out asa place to repulse the en. my. Various officers have had the credit of th- &elciim, but whatever particular credit is due, is certainly due to the com-jnanJer-in-chief, w ho foti-ht the battle. The Mexicans themselves had fought a battle there. Santa Anna knew ibe ground so Meli that hi ordered his General (Minon) lo take aud keep possession t fit, in order lo attack our rear. Geu. Minon j;ot iu our rear as ordered; but when he. reached Buena Vista, h found us iu p'v.esioii of it. Th 211 of February, 4,500 men. mostly raw troops, opposed to 20,000 of the eiieiny, was certainly uota very encouraging day. We did not feel quite so happy or so well as over this bountiful table to-night. .We thought of home, and of families, and friends; and our chance of death was much better, we thought, than of ever seeing them again. For several days previous. Gen. Taylor was constantly" en gaged in ni.ikiu; hi arrangements and writing home. It is said, also, that he ma Ja Mi will. But he never shrunk from his duly. "1 may perMi,r was his thought, "but I will peruh in maintaining the honor of my country! 1 have to run a terrible risk iu assuming the responsi bility cf making this onward march; but it is the only course that will save my army. To stay in Monterey was to be sacrificed by the overwhelming force of the enemy. Tosave all, 1 must Jiere ris-k alll" "The battle was fought, )ou know the result but you never can know the influence that the presence of Gen. Taj lor had upon the army. He alont, so it has seemed to me, could have inspired, by a presence, etery soldier iu the army, as the volunteers were inspired. The confidence in him was complete. If had commanded volunteers before, and had been suc- c.!iful with them. He had never surrendered; he had never been whipped; and the idea goi abroad, that he never could be. When manoeuvring my pieces athwart the gullies I cite mis as an example oi mat connaence i saw clouds ol dust about two miles Irum me. 1 was painfully anxious. I thought Gen. Minon had fallen opon our rear, and attacked our depots, aud to meet him was my iirsl thought. A mm cam : galloping up through the dust into sight, screaminp "Old Zack is coming?' Every soldier gve involuntary utterance to his feelings. Old Zaekcnmil and in fifteen minutes the tide of battle turned. Four thousand five hun dred men repulsed twenty thousan land lo the influence of that presence, under God, I think I am alive here to dine with you this day. "A Gentleman How often did you discharge your pieces that day? "Col. Brags About 250 rounds to each gun- "Another Gentleman How near was the enemy to your pieces, any time? "Col. Bragg Within fifty yards at one time, when wc mowpd them down? "Another Where was Geo. Taylor. "Col. Bragg Within forty yards. "Col. Bragg closed his rerrjarks with saying: "Understand me, gentlemen, lama soldier and no politician. I know Gen. Taylor only as a soldier and man. 1 speak of him only as the commander-in-chief of our army in Mexico. 1 have nothing to do with his politics, or yours. It is the duty of a soldier cheerfully to obey whomsoever you put into power.

The personal opinions of the individual w ho may happen to occupy the Executive Chair ought not lo control the action of Congres upon questions of domestic policy; nor ought his objtctions to be interposed where questions of Constitutional power have been settled by the various departments of government, and acquiesced in by the people. Z. Taylor. Os tue Veto Power. I have thought that for many years past, the kno xn opinions and wishes of the Executive have exercised an undue an injurious iufluence over the Legislative department of the Government; and for this cause 1 have thought our system was in danger of undergoing a great change from its true policy.

For all that is truly religious and truly christian, he has the highest veneration; but there is nothing sectarian, or bigoted, or intolerant in his nature.

Taylor is plain and unassuming accessible to everyone. The hum blest are equally welcome with the highest in his presence, and both leave it equally charmed with his simplicity and frankness, lie has no fondness whatever for show, and has seldom been seen in full uniform. Aud in the field there is nothing about his quarters to distiitguish them as those of a Major Generel. The same lack of pretension and ostentation is notical ie there. Entitled by his rank to a marquee, he uses a soldier's tent. No guard stands before it, nor is it remarkable for its furniture. There is, indeed, nothing studied or artificial about him. What he seems in the camp, he is at home in the bosom of his family, plain in his dress, sim ple in his habits, and coulial in his manners. In all the relations of life, he is the same; he never changes, no matter how often men or fashious change. He moves along still in his quiet wav, indifferent to everything but duty, and the consciousness of having performed it. Life of.
