Didhealih within my pulses heal?
Was sicknessmy perpetual lot?
The dust that fell is at your feel!
Pl< nsure or pain? It metiers not.
Did Love, God's pity, light my war?
Was I at last by her forgoi?
That darkest cloud on Heiug's day!
Falsehood or truth! It matters not.
Did Friendship jiv.- a glimpse of Heaven?
Did friends hut fill life's sunny spot
And leave tlie'dark? They are forgiven!
Tombs bury all. It matters not.
Perhaps around my forehead Fame
Wreathed laurels, bringing Honor's it;
Or did t fail to notch a name

Some pensive mortal's eye will rend

LETTER FilOM MOSTKIIEY.
I Depots for Supplies—Point Isabel and Camargo
f —Description of the Country—Mier—Visit to
a Mexican School—March to Snalvo—Arri-
val at Marin— Departure for Monterey, Sfc.
The following letter, containing a descrip
tion of tho land, towns, &.C., along the line
taken by our army in its march from Matamo
ras to Monterey, has been politely communi
cated by a gentleman of this city, for publica
tion in our columns. It is from a highly intelli
gent and respectable officer in the army:
CAMP NEAR MONTEREY, MEXICO, }
October 31st, 1846. J
The Braxos, and the mouth of the Rio
Grande, are now the principal depots for the
reception and forwarding of alt supplies for the
use of the army, to their dependencies. These j
plaees aie low and liable to inundation, from
the heavy galeß that frequently occur there.—
Therefore, Point Isabel is still kept up in case
suck an event should occur, that it may be re
t sorted to. And it is further considered the
most suitable place of the three, for storing am
munition, clothing, &c-, as well as for the ac
commodation of the sick, to which it is now
appropriated.
From the mouth of the Rio Grande up to
Camargo, a distance of 200 miles and upwards,
the country is flat, resembling in that particu
lar the gVeat valley of the Mississippi. The
river may be said to be the Mitsissippi in minia
ture. Boats drawing from 4to S 1-2 feet can
ascend, nearly or quite the year round as high
as Catnarge. At this poifit a depot for the
supply of the army in the interior has beon es
tablished since July. Few buildings remain
standing here, some 800 having been submerg
ed and completely destroyed by the high water
in June. The towns on the river worthy of
notice, and which are now oocupied by our
troops, are Barratu, Matainoras, Rynosa, and
Camargo. The soil is of an alluvial character,
and is eapable of being made very productive,
but it strikes me, that the Mexicans are not the
people to make it so. They pay very little
attention to the cultivation of their lands,
breaking it up with their wooden ploughs only
two or three inches deep, and casting the corn
upon the earth, (which is the staple of subsis
tence on the Rio Grande,) as small grain is
sown in the Unitod States.
The country through which the army passed
cn route from Camargo to Mier, like tiiat of
the Rio CVande, is flat and overgrown with
sparse brush-wood mostly clothed with thorns,
in this chap,oarcl region, we were made ac
quainted with the utility of the heavy saddle
1 gearing, in such common use in Northern Mex
ico, hcrctuforo unintelligible to many of us,
having the effect of the ancient greaves. Our
slight deviations rtom the road, to avoid dust,
or for some other e'ause, proved by our torn ap
parel, the necessity of such accoutrement.—
Meir, is situated on the Alamo, 40 miles from
Camargo, population about 4000, and lias for
its foundation a solid i"ock. The buildings are
generally stone, and bu'ilt for defence against
invasion, as all the town.s that 1 have seen ap
pear to be. Whilst here . I visited a school of
150 boys, which is said to .be conducted on the
Lancaslorian principle; who ther or no it is that
system, lam not able to say. They appeared
to be busily engaged getting their lessons, and
kept up a continual jabbering, which was any
thing else than a good system I concluded. As
soon as we left the neighborhood t"'f Mier, the i
ciiaracter of the country changed, I "torn the ex- j
treme flatness of the valley of the Rio Grande, !
to great boldness of undulation. The prospects !
became extensive and beautiful—son.'etimes
sublime, as ramifications of the Seirra .Madre ;
are almost constantly in view. But the CvVtin-1
try can be culled nothing else than an irrecluiiiA- !
able desert, save here and there a spot contig- i
1 uoujs to water courses. After passing several
places ol minor importance, we reached Seral
vo, 65 miles from Coroargo. This town may
hatfeonce contained 5000 inhabitant, but al l
this time, few wero seen in it, as well as all!
other towns on our route hitherward. They i
having been obliged, not by their own will, but
by force of arms to retire to Monterey, or sonic |
other place. We remained hero three days to 1
recruit, and make arrangements to move for- i
ward Willi an additional force, the regular l '

troops having advanced to this point, under
command of Gen. Worth, several weeks pre
vious to the arrival of llead Quarlers. tie fore
the departure of Gen. Taylor and staff from
Seralvo, Maj. Gen. Butler's command, (the 3d
division,) came up. The three divisions moved
off from here alternately, one ariny in advance
of each other. On the arrival of the Ist divis
ion at Marin, 160 miles S. S. W. front Cainar
go, and 25 miles north ort.Monterey, another
halt was made until all the forces marched to
that place.
The site occupied by Matin, is supposed to
be 1800 or 2000 feet above the level ol the sea.
It is one of the most prominent places through
which the army marched on its route to Mon
terey. Overlooking the sunourid.ng country,
and particularly in our advance, as tar as the
mountain pass to Saltillo. Some of the spy
glass gentlemen occupied the bcllry of the
church from time to time during our stay here,
but, the atmosphere continued so dense, that
their discoveries did not amount to much.—
Here as well as at all encamoments of our
army, Mexicans came in to dispose of their few
articles of marketing. Glad to be thus accom
modated, we have invariably paid them liber
ally for every thing they bring into camp.
Would the people of the United States con
descend to add to the supplies of an invading
army? No! I answer for thein all, they would
disdain to do so, but, would rather employ their 1
time and ingenuity, in piitcing obstructions in i
the way of an army invading their country j
Mexicans love their country no doubt, but,
they love money moru. Wherein then does
their republicanism consist?
At the appointed time the three divisions
moved off in the following order: at 6 o'clock,
A. M., the Ist division; at 7 o'clock, A. M , >
the 2d division, and at 9 o'clock, A. M,the
3d division; extending ftoni front to rear nine
miles. At 10 o'clock, A. M., on the 19th ul- |
timo, the advance guard, consisting of two
companies of Texan Rangers, replied in sight
of Monterey; it could not be seen to advantage,
untii they got in range of the enemy's heavy
cannon, being situated in a gorge of some of
the lof iest peaks (shaped like a sugar loaf) of
the Seirra \ladre. Six or eight guns were tired
from the Citadel, and of (lie enemy's batteries,
but the guard sustained no injury. After looking
at the place a little while, and bearing the mu
sic of the heavy artillery let loose at those who
were charged with the reconnoitering of the
place, and finding the enemy strongly fortified
with many batteries, General Taylor directed
that the neighboring grounds be examined, lor
the purpose of finding a suitable piaco, as near
the scene of action us possible, for encamping
his whole command. This order occupied but
a short time, when the army in advance and
that in the rear, as it came up, filed off to the
right and left of the road into a beautiful grove
(of live oak, pecon and other trees,) extending
along a small stream of water formed by vari
ous springs in the vicinity some six miles, with
gradually elevating banks on either side of it.
Major Mansfield, of the Engineers, with a
suitable escort ofDragoons and Texan Rangers,
was directed, with other officers of his corps,
to continue the reconnoisance commenced on
the 19th during the 20th. Giving General
j Worth, who had been ordered at 12 o'clock,
M., time to proceed, with the 2d division, and
gain a position on the Saltillo road, which
; would enable him to commence an attack on
| the heights by dawn of day on the 21st. Gen
i eral Worth, gained hie position and kept it,
i but was unable to engage the enemy as soon
| as contemplated, having many difficulties be
; yond expectation to surmount. However, at
! 10 o'clock, A. M., he commenced the work,
whilst the Ist and 3d divisions made a strong
diversion in his favor nearly at the same time
1 on the left of the town, the result of which you
1 know the particulars ere this, as well as the
success of the 2d Division. The commander
of that division should he created a Major
General. So say his friends here, and I be
lieve his enemies too. G. W. M.
I COMMERCIAL FORESIGHT. A respected and
wealthy merchant in Detroit, had a very large
amount of flour on hand in New York, when
the prices were down to the lowest point last
j winter. He act down his long at some 80 or
$100,000; and turned over Iris stock to his a
genls in New York and Liverpool. They as
sumed sole supervision of it—kept it in bond
for ten months, and sold the whole of the large
stock, n few weeks since, at 33 shillings a bar
rel. Mr. B. was entirely ignorant of tile course
; pursed by his agents, until he received infor
-1 mat ion of the sale of the flour, by which lie sav
ed over $40,000.
DEATH OF'THE WIDOW OF BLACK HAWK.
The editor of the Louisville Journal has re
ceived a letter from Dr. Volney Spalding, sur
geon to the Sancs and Foxes, mentioning the
death in tho Sane camp, on Kanasas river, on
the 291h of August, of As-Shaw-E-Qua, (Sing
ing Bird) widow of the distinguished war chief
Black Hawk, aged 86 years.
GAW. GAINES. lt having been stated that
this distinguished officer was confined to his
bed in New York, by a pulmonary complaint,
his physician, Dr. Bacon, lias thought proper
to correct the report. He says—Gen. Gaines
1 is in perfect health, and lias not been confin
ed to his bed by sickness within the last ten
years; nor lias he "lost a single ration" dur
ing that pel mil front indisposition, or from any
] cause but the want of time to eat it.

SATURDAY MORNING. NOVEMBER 28 1846
LATER FROM THE SOUTH— Expedition agatnsl
Tempico—lts Evacuation by the Alexienns. We
received tws of the back mails from the
South last night, leaving ono still due. We
are indebted to the Picayune for an extra, dat
ed Nov 19, containing the following interest
ing intelligence:
The schooner Mitii, Capt. Thompson, arriv
ed here this morning from the squadron at An
ton Liz,irdo, having made the voyage to the
Pass in five days. Mr. Clark, to whom we are
mdebted for lettors and information from the
squadron, cams passenger on the Mitis. Ho
communicated with the officers of the squadron
on Thursday last, the 12th inst. He gives us
the following account of the departure of the
cx; edition which has sailed for Tampieo.
Tiie Commodore despatched on Wednesday,
the 11th inst , the frigate Rarilan, Capt. Gre
gory, the Potomac, Capt. Aulick, and the sloop
of war St. Maiy's, Capt. Saunders, for Tam
pieo. The following morning, the 12th, the
cominedoro hoisted his bjoad pennant on tho j
steamer Princeton, Capt. Eiiglu, and sailed for j
same destination. The Prinaeton took in tow the
steamer Spitfire,Capt.Tattnall, and the gunhoal j
Petrei, Lieut. Shaw. The Mississippi, Com. ;
Perrv, sailed the name day, having in tow the
steamer Vixen, Com'r Sands, the Bonitu, Lieut.!
Benlram, the Reefer, Lieut. Slerrott, and the '
Nonata, Lieut. Hazard. Ere this they have
doubtless reached their destination, and we 1
presume that Tampieo is already in onr power. !
The steamer Spitfire, Capt. Tatnall, nrrived !
at Anton Lizardo only on the 11th inst, from
Brazos Santiago, having touched at Tampieo I
and communicated the blockade of that port. 1
From the Porpoise they learned that the Mexi
can troops had marched out of Tampice, retir
ing towards San Luis Potosi, taking with thern
the artillery from Tampieo.
The prize sehr. Pctrita, formerly the Cham- ■
pion, was to leave Anton Lizirdo on the 13th
inst. tor Tampieo.
Tiie prize schooner Laura Virginia, turned
into a run-boat, left Anton Lizardo on the 21th '
irist. forTobasco, to communicate with the cut
ters Forward and McLane, from whom noth
ing has been heard since Com. Perry left Ta
basco, cr rather Fronton. ;
The remains of the lamented Lieut. Morris
have been exhumed and placed on board tiie
Raritan, which will convey (hum to Ponsaco
la, o soon as the affair of Tampieo is over.
The prize schooner Telegraph, in charga of
Midshipman Smith had sailed I'or this port and
is now passed due.
The Somers is maintaining the blockade of
Vera Cruz, and tho liigate Cumberland, Capt. ,
Forrest, the prize steamer Tabasquena, and tho
■ prize schooner Alvarado, are lying at Anton
Lizardo.
j There were also lying thcie the bark Aver
non, Jordan, master, the bark Morgan Dix,
Hamilton, master, arid the schooner Sarah,;
1 Bradbury, master. The barks were bound for
| this port, the first to sail in throe or four days,'
and the second in two weeks; the schooner is
bound to Puscagoula. These vessels had tuken
down coal, kc. to the squadron.
MEXICAN LETTERS or MARQUE. The New
Orleans Bulletin, teferritig to the report that l
Mexico had issued letters of marque and re- j
I prisals against our commerce, says:
The letters we have seen—from an undoubt-!
Ed source in the city of Mexico—states that
these commissions had actually been forwarded
to Vera Cruz, and other letters, from the most |
reliable sources at Havana, say they had been 1
brought thereby Don Felix Rivera, who came
to that port in the last British steamer, from
Vera Cruz, and that his mission from tho Mex
ican government was to take measures for car
rying the plan into effect. The advices from
Mexico stated that Don Rivera's mission was
connected with the negotiation of a loan, in
Europe, for 20,000,000 of dollars, the very ab
surdity of which report refutes itself.
Accompanying the commissions, we learn
there are a large number of patents for citizen
ships, which are of course intended to make
nominal Mexican citizens of all that may em
bark in these cruizcrs.
The Spanish authorities in Cuba, it appears,
are determined to act in good faith towacis the
United States, in this business, and will do all
in their power to prevent or destroy any at
tempt of the kind, but it is extremely doubt
ful, even with tire best intentions and exer
tions, whether they may be able to do so to tire
full extent that could bo desired, when wo re
collect the number of desperadoes that are
always not only to he found on thut Island, but
who would ilock there from every quarter of
the world, and whose cupidity would tie so ef
fectively rou-ed by the prospect of preying on
the rich arid varied commerce of the United
States.

WASHINGTON, NOV. 27, 1846.
Vie Kan Mss Case. This morning, Mr.
Hoover, the celebrated Ink manufacturer, who
resides in Philadelphia, was examined an the
part ot the defence. Mrs. Van Ness, in May
last, came to bis store, and, aftar pricing a bot
tle of ink, began to talk about the deceased al
derman (Mr. Christian,) she asked questions
about the appearance of the alderman. She
called twice afterwards, to examine tho rooms
in the house, (which was occupied by the fam
ily of Mr. Christian before his death.) When
the lady reached one of tho rooms, she remark
ed that she had seen it before.
On the cross-examination, the witness said
he thought the lady made enquiry about the
furniture, etc.
Mrs. Hoover, the wife of the first witness, saw
the lady at her house on the first of September
last,where she inude enquiries as to the arrange
ment ol the several rooms and the appearance j
of the late Mr. Christian.
Mr. Samuel Christian, a son of the deceased
alderman, said he had seen the lady, the plain
tiff, in Philadelphia. His father died on the
17th of February last. The lady called on
him on the 2d of September last, and stated the
object of her visit—that she was married to
Gen. Van Ness on the 6th of August, 1840,
and thought that the father of the witness mar
ried them. Me told her that his sister receiv
ed an ano iymouß note three days before, oiler
ing five hundred dollars reward for proof of the
marriage, but she said she knew nothing about
it. The witness searched his father's record,
but could find no evidence of the marriage.—
She described the appearance of his father bet
ter than he could do it himself. Me thought
that she approached him in a corrupt way from
the fact that she said, in making enquiry of him
for the evidence of marriage, that money was
no object, which she frequently repeated.
Alderman Buckley, of Philadelphia, testified
that the lady had called upon him in Philadel
phia, and that ho had assisted her, but without
effect, to find the person who performed tiie
marriage ceremony; finally, she said she c uld
get along without the certificate, as she had
other proof.
Alderman Elkinton was sworn. He brought
with him a hook, in which there were marriage
entries.
Mr. Brailley read several of them, and oft'ei
ed the book in evidence, lo show that there is
no entry there of' Gen. Van Ness having been J
married to Mrs. iVI. A. Connor.
Alderman Klkinton said that tiie book was
handed to liiin by a constable as the marriage
record of Aldeman Christian.
The counsel lor the plaintiff - objected to the
book being offered as evidence; the law does
not require the record, and the entry may be
made or not, as the alderman may please.
Mr. Carlisle addiessed the court on the oth
er side. !
i Mr. Brent was about to reply, when Mr.
Christian was re-called, who said that bis
lather waß so particular, that, whenever he
married any body, lie immediately made an
entry in the book before he would say a word
to any body. j
Mr. Brent remarked that, as it was so strong
ly insisted on, he would consent to let the book
to to the jury.
And, at 4 o'clock the eourt adjourned till
to-morrow.
&"ly in the week, a little book was '
produced in court by Miss Connor, at the in
stance of Mr. Brent, as the only family record,
to afford an idea of the age of the young lady,
who had said she was "not out of her teens." i
The following is an extract from the volume,
viz:
Mrt Mury .fain Connor, le her sleeping child,
Miss Serena R. Connor, Ocl. 24, 1828.
Sleep on, sleep on, my precious girl,
No cares possess thy breast,
Thy transient grief* cannot destroy
Thy fears, nor break thy rest.
Though on thy cheek the trace of tears
Remains so lately shed,
Yet, now how calm thy sleep appears,
Thy sorrows all have fled?
To-morrow's dawn will find tlieo gay,
Thine eyes with pleasure bright,
Planning thy littlo work or play,
With fresh arid pure delight.
But, aid how different with me,
1 court sweut sleep in vain,
My harrassed feelings still will be
Of griefs: my thoughts are pain.
In vain I chide my starting tear,
And long to gain repose,
The intrusive drops will still appear,
My weary eyes unclose.
Nor can 1 hope 1.0-tnorrow's dawn
Will ought of joy restore;
Ah, tne! the star of hope is gone,
To light tny path no more!
Oh, then sleep on, my dear Serena,
And sweetly leke thy rest,
Whilst peace, and innocence and joy,
Arc inmates of thy breast.
For, ah' 100 soon the world will press
Its cares upon thy brow,
Thy dreams to harrassand distress,
That are so peaceful now.

I A CERTAIN DISEASE,
j When Hit misguided and imprudent votery of plea

; ease, it too often happens that an ill-timed sense c
shame, or dread of discs very, deters him from apply
ing to those who, from education arid respectatwrt?
can alone befriend htm, delaying till the eoiiHtitutiunai
symptoms of this horrid disease make theirappesw
nnce, such as ulcerated sore throat, diseased no**,
nocturnal pains in the herd and limbs.dimness of sight,
deafness, nodes on the shin bones nnd arms, blotehc*
on the head, faceand extremities, progressing on with
frightful rapidity, till at last the palate oftlte month of
the bones of the iiose fall in and the victim of this aw
fill disease becomes a horrid object of commiseration,
till death puts a period to his dreadful sufferir g, by
, sending him to "that bourne whence no traveller re
! turns." To such, therefore, Dr. JOHNSTON pledget
j hims"lf to preserve the mort inviolable secrecy and!
from his extensive practice in the firm hosp-tals of
; Europe and America, he can confidently recommend
■ a safe and speedy cure to the unfortunate vioriia mi
